Major uestions
Acted on by SAC
Discuss Political Groups, Rushing,
Bias Clause, Conduct Committee
Daily Managing Editor
Student Affairs Committee yesterday took a final look at some
long-standing unfinished business and acted on two major ques-
tions in an effort to smooth the way for Student Government Coun-
cil in its early stages of organization.
The committee unanimously passed a recommendation that
University President Harlan H. Hatcher set up- a study committee,
similar to the group that recently looked into the student govern-
ment problem, to reevaluate the composition and functions of the
present Committee on Student Conduct..
Regarded as 'Unwieldly Group'
Generally regarded as an unwieldly group, the Committee on
Student Conduct is made up of the deans of all the schools and
colleges, three faculty members and representatives of student gov-
ernment and Joint Judiciary Council. The committee last met in 1949.
Chief responsibility of the conduct committee is to frame
regulations governing student conduct and to supervise procedures
of the campus-judiciary system.
Because of the difficulty of arranging meetings, many of the
conduct committee's duties have been delegated to the three-man
Subcommittee on Student Discipline. This smaller committee also
has the final power of review in cases handled by Joint Judic.
Discussion in SAC brought out two problems. The first involves
a reexamination of the conduct committee with an eye toward
" possibly revamping its organiza-
tion and functions.
Saar P act The second problem centers on
a clarification of the present rules
governing student conduct.
irial SACfelt that the organization
of the Committee on Student Con-
duct should be looked into first
Ymand that the rules could then be
studied by whatever new group
might be set up.
No dissatisfaction was express-

MSC Name
In Question
Regents State Reasons
For Opposing Change
Associate City Editor
The Board of Regents yester-
day reaffirmed its opposition to
the proposed name change of
Michigan State College.
President Harlan H. Hatcher,
outlining the University's position
concerning a plan to change the
name of MSC to Michigan State
University, referred to the Re-
gents' public statement of a year
ago opposing the change.
Regent Roscoe 0. Bonisteel re-
iterated the opinion of the Regents
given last year that any name that
includes the words of "Michigan"
and "State" and "University" is
an infringement upon the name of
the University of Michigan.
In addition, the Regents based
their stand on the belief that "such
change would necessarily raise
questions about the real purpose of
the proposal in relationship to
higher education in Michigan."
According to statements issued
by MSC, because the word "col-
lege" is now in its title, hiring of
qualified faculty members is diffi-
cult. MSC officials appear to be-
lieve this problem would be re-
duced were the name "University"
substituted for "College."
President Hatcher referred also
the necessity of modifying the
Michigan Constitution which es-
tablishes educational institutions
by law, in order to change the
name of MSC.
"What state university would be
meant in wills or other documents
which were not specific to iden-
tity?" is a question that further
complicates the problem of chang-
ing our sister institution's name,
according to the Regents.
Regent Alfred B. Connable, Jr.
suggested that the Regents follow
the recommendation of the Michi-
gan Association of State College
Presidents to have a joint meeting
of committees from MSC and the
University to discuss the problem.
Chairman of the Board of R-
gents, J. Joseph Herbert appointed
Regents Roscoe O. Bonisteel,
Charles S. Kennedy and Otto E.
Eckert to meet with a committee
of the State Board of Agriculture
(MSC governing body) to discuss
a name that will be acceptable to
both institutions. No date has been
set for the meeting.
All of the Regents emphasized
throughout the discussion that
they acknowledge the university
status of MSC, and the accom-
plishments of that school in the
educational field. "We want to
proceed on this issue in a friendly
manner" they agreed.
Newsmen questioned the Re-
gents on the possibility of expan-
sion implications for other schools
that include the name "university"
in terms of law, medicine and oth-
er professional educational facili-
President Hatcher r e m a r k e d
that duplication of professional
training facilities is very expensive,
but that the needs of the state in
these areas must be considered. He
concluded that implications of ex-
pansion have not been clarified
with reference to MSC if the name
"University" is applied to it.

Attacked by opposition Socialists
for "treason to the Saar," Ade-

two of the government's four par-
ties-the Free Democrats and the
Refugees. They total 74 deputies,
but not all may vote no.
In fact, after a four-hour con-
ference of Free Democratic depu-
ties, party chairman Thomas Deh-
ler said 10 or 11 of them probably
will vote for the pact. Dehler had
led a fight against it.
CDU Support
Adenauer's own Christian Dem-
ocratic Union, which normally has
a one-vote majority of 244 in the
Bundestag, rallied behind him.
However, Three CDU deputies, ex-
pelled from their birthplace in the

Candidate Requirements
In its second action SAC "rec-
ommended to SGC as a general
policy ,that student organizations
formed for the purpose of sup-
porting candidates for any public
office be required to meet those
qualifications for recognition that

convenience meet jointly with the
University Lecture Committee to

Harlan Replies
To Opposition
shall Harlan, President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's nominee for the Su-
preme Court, denied yesterday he
favors any "one world" or inter-
nationalist movement that would
interfere with the sovereignty of
the United States.
Harlan testified at an open
hearing of the Senate Judiciary
Committee, which is considering
his nomination. Several previous
witnesses opposed his selection for
the high court on the ground he
has been associated with the At-
lantic Union movement.

Wolverine Icers r os, 7-0

Michigan's resurgent hoc key
squad took a huge step toward
gaining its eighth NCAA playoff
berth by thoroughly drubbing a
hapless North Dakota outfit, 7-0,
last night at the Coliseum.
Tom Rendall treated the near'
capacity throng to one of the
year's greatest scoring displays
with a three-goal hat-trick, while
his teammates put on their most'

Given Leaves
Of Absence
The title of professor emeritus
of metallurgical engineering was
conferred on Clair Upthegrove by
the Board of Regents at their
meeting yesterday.
Prof. Upthegrove, 70 years old,
joined the University faculty in
the fall of 1916. He earned a Bach-
elor of chemical engineering de-
gree in 1914,, and served almost
continuously on the faculty until
his retirement last fall.
Prof. Hawley Reappointed
In other action, Prof. Amos H.
Hawley was reappointed chair-
man of the department of sociol-
ogy for a five-year term begin-
ning with the University year of
Prof. Philip A. Duey of the
School of Music and conductor of
the Men's Glee Club, was granted
a sabbatical leave for the 1955-
56 year. He will spend the year in
Europe, chiefly in Italy, collecting
material for a study of vocal or-
namentation and style in the 16th
and 17th centuries.
Prof. Ross Lee Finney, of the
School of Music, was given a sab-
batical leave for the second se-
mester of the 1955-56 year. He
will spend the time writing music
and studying the education of Eu-
ropean composers.
Prof. Owen
Prof. Marian Owen, of the
School of Music, was granted a
sabbatical leave, for the second
semester of the 1955-56 year. Her
plans include study in New York
and in Europe where she will au-
dit the classes of internationally
known artist teachers and receive
coaching from some of these,

second shut-out of the year.
Wolverines will take on the No-
daks again tonight in the Coli-
seum at 8:00, and will attempt to
run their victory streak to six
straight games. Heyligers' sextet
has now copped nine out of their
last 11 games, putting on another
brilliant stretch run in the race
to the Broadmoor and the NCAA
Ice finals.
Work Smoothly
For the first time this season,
two Wolverine lines functioned
smoothly at the same time. In
fact, they scored alternate goals
throughout the contest, as seven
different players shared in the
Howes was great when the oc-
casion warranted it, but the vaunt-
ed North Dakota offense never got
going. Only Ben Cherski resem-
bled his press clippings, but even
he was obscure in the face of the
Wolverine onslaught.
Garner Two Points
The game, worth two big points
in the WIHL standings, was nev-
er a contest after Tom Rendall
scored the initial goal at 11:45 of
the first period. Spike Schultz, the
Nodak goalie was far from in-
vincible, and Michigan skated
through, in, and around the weak
Nodak defense.
Rendall sent the huge mob into
bedlam when he broke the ice by
completely faking out five Sioux
defenders, riding in all alone on
Schultz, and sneaking the puck
past him.
A little over a minute later,
Rendall gave more evidence of
what was to come by virtually re-
peating his performance, as he
again stick-handled magnificent-
ly through the entire Nodak out-
fit, and easily beat Schultz.
Michigan Goes to Work
Holding a 2-0 lead at the first
intermission, Michigan really went
to work during the second stanza.

Not even five minutes had passed
before Jerry Karpinka notched the
Wolverines' third marker by rac-
ing in from the left and whipping
in a 20 foot shot. Schultz never
even saw it.
Jay Goold went to work only
four and a half minutes later at
9:29 when he picked up a re-
bound and slid it behind the har-
ried Schultz to up the Wolverine
margin to 4-0.
Game Becomes a Rout
By this time, the game was be-
coming a rout, and the Nodaks
knew it. The steam seemed to go

Eight Nations
Sign Treaty
In Bangkok
U.S. To Supply
Military Bulwark
BANGKOK 01) - The eight
Manila Pact nations agreed yes-
terday on united action "to pre-
serve and strengthen the peace"
of Southeast Asia and block "those
subtle- forms of aggression by
which freedom and self-govern-
ment are undermined and mens
minds are subverted."
The decisions wound up a three-
day conference which set up per-
manent headquarters in Bangkok
and created committees to deal
with military, subversive and eco-
nomic problems.
Sharp Differences
Despite some sharp differences
of opinion, international commu-
nism was mentioned in the final
communique of the Southeast Asia
Treaty Organization as a menace
against which members were unit-
ed. It was the first time the word
communism appeared in an offi-
cial SEATO document since the
pact was signed in Manila last
"The way of the aggressor has
been made harder," summed Unit-
ed States Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles.
The communique said delegates
met "in circumstances which give
increasing urgency to objectives of
the treaty." This apparently re-
ferred to the Formosa situation on
which Secretary Dulles conferred
at length with British Foreign Sec-
retary Eden during their stay in
Defense Discussed
Even before the conference end-
ed yesterday, military advisers be-
gan discussing plans "to take all
possible measures" for defense of
freedom in the Orient.
The conference's final communi-
que emphasized that these military
arrangements, to be built around
an American force in the Pacific
of 650,000 men, "will never be used
for purposes of aggression."
Some Asian nations had hoped
that a SEATO military force, com-
parable to NATO, would be devel-
oped. But the United States opin-
ion prevailed that mobile striking
forces, with the possible use of
nuclear weapons, would be the
most effective.
Subversion Threat
The threat of subversion, viewed
with particular concern, is to be
met by cooperative development of
the economic, social and cultural
phases of the area.
This was underscored by an rof
fer from Secretary Dulles to share
220 pounds of nuclear fuel with
the seven other Manila Pact na-
tions for atomic research reac-
The eight pact nations are the
United States, Britain, France,
Austria, New Zealand, the Philip-
pines, Pakistan and Thailand.

sal possibilities loomed in the fore-
ground yesterday.
1. Joel Tauber's, '57 proposal to

last Sunday received a shot in the
arm Thursday when Inter-Cooper-
