Approval on the action must come from the IFC Fraternity Presi-
dents Assembly Tuesday and from the Student Government Coun-
Both Phi Ep and Tau Epsilon Phi, which vied with Phi Ep to
come here, have had chapters here in the past. Phi Ep was here
from 1921 to 1941, while TEP operated a house here from 1923 until
1932. ..
The executive committee gave several reasons for its action. In-

Union Can't
Serve Beer,
Board Told
Would Violate
City Ordinance
"There is no possibility of ever
getting beer served in the Union,"
Franklin Kuenzel, general manag-
er of the Union. said yesterday at
a Union Board of Directors meet-
Discussing recent efforts to pro-
vide beer in the new Union addi-
tion, Kuenzel said there was a city
ordinance preventing such a move.
"You can't serve beer in the Un-
ion, or you will have beer in thej
entire campus area," he said.
Tradition Problems
The Board also discussed an-
other recent attempt to preserve
the Union tap room furniture as
part of the University tradition.
Kuenzel said that plans for the
modernization were approved last
year and it had been the feelingl
of the Board at that time to com-
pletely renovate the tap room.
"We will attempt to keep the1
traditional tables iA the south
cafeteria," Kuenzel said, but added
that there was no way of saving
the carved table-tops on the north
wall now.
Set Up Committee
The Board agreed to set up a
special committee to consult with
Kuenzel on the plans as they are
now proceeding. Union PresidentJ

Ohio Flood .:.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.-The crest of
the Ohio River flood, which al-
ready has caused 13 million dol-
lars damage and left thousands
homeless, raced downstream from
Cincinnati yesterday.
More damage was certain but
downstream cities took the word
of United States Army engineers

WASHINGTON - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower pledged
yesterday the United States will
continue to maintain a "fair
share" of its land, sea and air
forces in Europe to guard against
Communist attack.
In a special message to the pre-
miers of seven European allies, the
President said he will keep Amer-
ican units deployed in and around
Europe "while a threat to that
area exists."
Tax Policy..-
WASHINGTON-A major de-
bate to tax policy opened in the
Senate yesterday, with Sen. Harry
Byrd declaring the government is
"mortgaged to the hilt" and can-
not affort to cut taxes without
cutting spending.
The Virginia Democrat, chair-
man of the Senate Finance Com-
mittee, said, "It should be the con-
sidered judgment of every one of
us that the federal debt should not
be increased except for extreme
national emergency."
Pay Raises .. .

pay raises of six to 25 per cent for
career men in the armed services.
The idea is to keep good men in,
rather than have them turn to

TV Debates , , .
LANSING - Republican State
Chairman John Feikens yesterday
challenged Democrats to a series
of television debates on public
service time.
Feikens previously had turned;
down a Democratic challenge for
a similar series of debates because
they would have been carried on
'UAW-CIO television time.
Feikens said he had asked Mich-
igan's television stations to grant
the public service time and de-
clared that the Republicans are
ready to go ahead with the de-
bates if the time is available and
the Democrats are willing.

cluded among them were:
1) Scholarship records of Phi Ep
while here in comparison to TEP
were by far the more outstanding
compiled by the two houses.
2) Phi Ep was here for a longer
period of time than TEP.
3) The size and strength of Uni-
versity alumni from Phi Ep will
be instrumental in establishing a
strong chapter here.

activation. All must be fulfilled
after one year here. Included
among them were:

ship above the all-male average

Tom Leopold, 55, said that inI
case a change of plan was pro-
posed, a special meeting of the'
Board would be held.
A long discussion was held on
the advisability of adding the
presidents of the Inter-House
Council and the Inter-Fraternity
Council to the Board, either as vot-
ing or non-voting members.

The executive committee will
make a final review after one year.
3) There must be 30 men, both

University-approved housing suit-
able for occupany.
5) An active chapter adviser
will be required.
6) Phi Ep must adhere to all
University regulations as a group
and will be subject to them.
IFC President Bob Weinbaum,
'56, said a poll taken among the
six fraternities which will be most
af ected by the new fraternity's re-
activation showed three favoring
Phi Ep, two favoring TEP and
one with no preference.
Earlier in the meeting, the group
voted to recommend to the As-
sembly that permission be ob-
tained from the executive com-
mittee before a non-member is
allowed to room or board in a fra-
ternity house.
Johnston Picked

The alternate proposal differs
only in that a one week period

aminations, moving the entire
schedule of the second semester
up a week.'
During the meeting, H. 0.
(Fritz) Crisler, director of physi-
cal education and athletics, point-
ed out that the alternate propos-
ed plan would eliminate 11 double
practice sessions and the proposed
plan only four. Both proposals
would also limit the basketball and
baseball schedules.
Although the proposals are plan-
ned for the fall of 1956, the pro-
posed final examination schedule
begins this semester. After a break
on May 27, finals will start on
May 28.
Advantages, Disadvantages
Advantages of the two proposals
were summarized as follows: two
15-week semesters; elimination of
the "lame duck" period after
Christmas; Saturday classes giv-
en full equity; one day break be-'
fore exams in each semester and
a lengthened final examination
Disadvantages of the plans sug-
gested include a shorter orienta-
tion period and conflicts with
some athletic schedules.
Final' adoption of either pro-
posal by the Deans' Conference
and the Board of Regents would'
take effect in the fall of 1956.
