No changes in driving regulations are planned for the near future,
University President Harlan H. Hatcher said yesterday.
"I don't sense any eagerness on the part of the Board of Regents
to modify the rules," he said. "Spot opinion I have picked up seems
more against rather than in favor of any drastic change in the situa-
tion."

PROGRESS:
wIHC Moves
Into Second
Year Work
(EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the
fourth in a series of interpretive
articles dealing with the services,
history and future of the Inter-House
Council.)
By JOEL BERGER
Since September, 1953, the In-
ter-House Council has been rap-
idly moving into the position it
now occupies in campus life.
One of the first moves after
school started in 1953 was to have
financing done by collection of
dues from individual house coun-
cils. The money came from the
house treasuries at the rate of 10E
cents per man.
Upon the request of the IHC
early in October, Dean of Men
Walter B. Rea explained to a
meeting the situation surround-
ing the removal of men from Chi-
cago House, with the house being
turned over to women.
Chicago House Problem
At the time Dean Rea said "the
present use of Chicago House by
women students is on a one-year
basis." One of the IHC officers'
current dilemmas is what stand to
take on the use of the house,
During the same meeting the
which is still occupied by women.
IHC ratified the constitution of
the Campus Broadcasting Net-
work. The three quadrangle sta-
tions had previously been working
together for a year under an in-
formal agreement.
On December 4 the IHC unan-
imously voted to tackle the big-
gest project in its short history-
Operation Inquiry, an evaluation
of how well the men's residence
halls system is working. This re-
port is currently in its final stages
and will be released March 1.
Begin Series of Workshops
January 6, 1954, marked the
date enabling legislation for the
IHC Judiciary was given by the
Residence Halls Board of Gover-
nors. The Judiciary was given ap-
pellate jurisdiction in all cases
brought before house and quad-
rangle judicial councils.
One month later the IHC be-
gan a series of workshops with
Assembly. During the first such
session, the place of residence
halls in the University communi-
ty was discussed.
In March last year the IHC went
on record as opposing "any

Michigan State College, he said,
is considering a rule to prevent
freshmen from driving next year.
Ohio State University is studying
their regulations, he continued, to
see how they can adapt them to
cope with the driving and park-
ing pi oblem on their campus.
Speaking at a press conference
in the Administration Building,
President Hatcher said revision of
tuition and fees is under study in
terms of operating costs, although
nothing formal has been decided.
"Fees and dormitory rates at the
University have not responded to
the rise in the cost of living
throughout the nation at large,"
he commented. "Services should
be kept at as low a cost as pos-
sible and we have responded re-
luctantly when necessary."
Commenting on a proposal in
the State Legislature to change the
name of Michigan State College to
include the word "university,"
President Hatcher said the Re-
gents' attitude against such a move
has not changed.
Might Be :Confusing
The Regents are not concerned
about the concept of a university
but about a possible confusion in
names, President Hatcher-added.
Discussions on the senior col-
lege of the University at Flint are
continuing, the president com-
mented, although no formal ac-
tion has come out of the discus-
sion yet.
He said other cities have ex-
pressed interest in the plan, under
which the University will operate
the last two years of a four year
college in Flint. He indicated
there are no formal proposals yet
for similar colleges in other Mich-
igan cities.
Commenting on the missing
Paul Bunyan trophy, 'President
Hatcher said, "Whoever has it--
I wish they'd bring it back."

faith, he commentea. and it is in-
cumbent on us to treat it with re-

Jven though the showers don't

pretty happy bunch of guys."
In University records the house
at 927 S. Forest is officially call-
ed 'Forest House,' and the scene
of social-psychology group studies.
Under Prof. Theodore Newcomb,
the men of Forest House were
united to study howa group forms,
its development and the methods
it uses to meet its problems.
However, there have been some
changes this semester. According
to research assistant Harry Bur-
dick, the study couldn't get the
representative group it wanted, so
it is not running at full scale.
Out in the Woods
Secondly, the men tired of the
name "Forest House" which
"sounded out in the woods" and
chose "Old Forester" as having a
little more "kick." But it seems the
University and the telephone com-
pany rebelled so. "Soc Psi," phort
for Social Psychology, was adopt-
ed.
Life at Soc Psi is still pretty
much the same as it was when
the study was in full swing. The
only difference is that men are
paying their own rent ($100 a
semester) whereas this was paid
by the University when the study
was on.

Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - Michigan's
hockey squad came alive here yes-
terday with three blistering fast
goals at the end of the first pe-
riod to set the pace for a vitally
important 5-2 win over Minnesota
in the first game of a weekendI
series.
A sellout crowd of 6,090 was on
hand to watch the Gophers crura-
ble before a spirited Wolverine
sextet that is trying desperately
to remain in the running for a
playoff berth in the Western In-
ter-Collegiate Hockey League. The
two'teams square off again tonightj
in an equally, important game. 1
Team Effort
It was a team effort with five
different Wolverines taking a part
in the scoring.
Defenseman Bob Schiller broke
the ice late in the first period at
13:52 when he took a pass from
high-scoring Bill MacFarland at
the blue line and whizzed a bullet
screen shot past Minnesota goalie
Jim Mattson.
The gates opened further sec-
onds later. A goal mouth mix-up
with the puck being pushed into
the nets by wing Jerry Karpinka
gave Michigan a sudden 2-0 lead.
New defenseman Mike Buchanan
came through with the first goal
of his varsity career on a beauti-
ful, long shot from outside the
blue line.
Michigan continued to check
well. Goalie Lorne Howes, who
made 32 saves as compared to
Mattson's 21, was in his best form
throughout the hectic second and
third stanzas.
Rendall Scores
An unassisted tally by Tom Ren-
dall late in the second period in-
creased the lead to 4-0. The scrap-
py sophomore was able to slam the
puck past the lunging Mattson
even though he was pulled down
hard from behind as he was shoot-
ing.

most tested group of people in
the annals of social psychology."
Last semester men spent three
to five hours a week answering
tests about the living, but at pres-
ent this part of the study is not
in effect.
Also missing is one of the more
prominent of the last semester's
residents, a coccer spaniel belong-
ing to one of the men. All the resi-
dents had code numbers, so they
adopted one for the pooch, too.
"K-9.t"
Need New Resident
But K-9 proved too much of a
problem and had to leave the
study. The problem of the shower,
which because of low water pres-
sure, turns on and off unexpected-
ly is still with the group.
The new difficulty facing the
Soc Psiers is that of finding an-
other resident. The house has
room for 18, and one more would
help cut costs. Four students
board in the house now, and Soc
Psiers indicated that they could
use more boarders, too, who "don't
have to wash the dishes."

'U' Housing
Inadequate:
.dean Fuller
By PHYLLIS LIPSKY
University housing authorities
are faced with the fact that the
women's dormitory building pro-
gram is not keeping pace with
the increase in enrollment.
This was the problem presented
yesterday by Assistant Dean of
Women Elsie R. Fuller to an As-
sembly Association committee on
women's housing.
The particular problem which
the committee will take up is how
to fit next semester's larger wom-
en student population into pres-
ent dormitory facilities, with the
least amount of discomfort.
While the committee cannot
deal with the problem of cutting
down enrollment, Dean Fuller ex-
plained that "the minute you put
a ceiling on the number of wom-'
en attending that would be dis-'
crimination."
28 Still in Temporary Housing
Even with the usual spring drop
in size there are 28 women in
temporary housing this semester,
Dean Fuller said. The problem is
further complicated by the fact
that Couzen's Hall addition will
not be completed by fall.
Freshmen bear the brunt of
over-crowding since a Regents rule
requires them to live in dorms and
returning upperclassmen and
sophomores get first choice in
room selection.
Last year the Dean's office had
to arrange to house the freshmen
population after room choices had
been made. As a result Dean Ful-
ler explained some of the remain-
ing rooms converted into doubles
and triples were not necessarily
the ones best suited,
Student Opinion : Ad
Therefore dormitory women are
being asked for their suggestions
early in the semester, she said.
Student representatives, who
came from every dorm on campus,
pointed out that among the worst
problems faced by residents are
temporary housing arrangements
in study halls and ping pong
rooms, and the conversion of
rooms not well suited for an ex-
tra person.

N95-110
Rolleall Vote
Climaxes
Bitter Fight
Defeat of Reed Plan
Test of Legislation
WASHINGTON (P)-President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's tariff-cut-
ting foreign trade program was
pushed through the House late
yesterday with a big assist from
its Democratic majority.
After a bitter- two-day fight, the
bill was passed on a rolicall vote of
295-110.
But the lack of the opposition,
led in part by members of Pres.
Eisenhower's own party, was bro-
ken when the House defeated by
seven votes an amendment by
Rep. Daniel A. Reed (R-NY)
which would have deprived the
President of much of his power to
override recommendations of the
Tariff Commission for higher trade
barriers.
Vote--206 to 199
In this key test of the legislation,
the vote was 206-199. Rep. Reed's
amendment was supported by 119
Republicans and 80 Democrats,
but opposed by 140 Democrats and
66 Republicans.
Voting for passage of the bill
were 186 Democrats and 109 Re-
publicans. Opposing it to the end
were 75 Republicans and 35 Dem-
ocrats. The bill now goes to the
Senate.
Soon after the House action,
Pres. Eisenhower expressed his
gratification in a statement in
which he said:
"This program is of tremendous
significance to the economic
health and security of the United
States and our friends in the
free world." He did not mention
the refusal of House Republicans
to unite behind the measure.
Major Part of Program
The bill, a major part of the ad-'
ministration's program for this
session of Congress, extends the
reciprocal trade program for three
years from June 12 and gives the
President authority to cut tariffs
up to 15 per cent during that pe-
riod in return for similar conces-
sions in foreign markets.
Democrats carried the major
share of the fight throughout the
hot debate, and House Speaker
Sam Rayburn (D-Tex) once left
the chair to speak for the program
on the floor.
Reed's amendment was opposed
as a "crippling" and "devastating"
addition to the bill, although it
still would have permitted the
President to override recommenda-
tions of the Tariff Commission
when national security required it.
'Dear Joe' Letter
Eisenhower made a last minute
appeal for support of the program
in a "Dear Joe" letter to the mi-
nority leader, Joseph Martin (R-
