Faeulty Say
Cheaters
In Minority
Magazine Charge
Finds No Support
By ERNEST THEODOSSIN
University faculty members dis-
agree with charges that "cheaters
"Nfoutnumber non-cheaters today in
most United States colleges,"n
voiced in this month's McCall's.
magazine.
The magazine article states that
"cheating is a national problem,
note confined to any one area of
the country," and alleges that
honor systems do little good with
the problem.
Literary school Asst. Dean James
H. ,Robertson said that cases of
cheating that come to his atten-
tion "are a relatively minor per-
centage, and usually involve fairly
flagrant cases of plagiarism or blue
book cheating."
Out of more than 6;000 literary
school students, Dean Robertson
said he seldom gets more than 10
or 12 cases a semester, and often
a smaller number. Whathappens
locally, I 'don't know;" he; added.
Cases MRather Few'
Engineering college Dean George
-G.. Brown, whose school operates
on an honor system, claims that
eases are "not many, in fact,
rather few."
"I have had 35 years of experi-
ence with the honor systen," he
said, "and it works better than any
other system."
Asked about the possibility of
Initiating an honor system in the
literary college, Dean Robertson
said the subject has been discus-
sed periodically in student confer-
ences.
"It is something that the whole
student body has to understand
and willingly accept," Dean Rob-
ertson continued. "The students
-themselves must take responsibil-
ity for seeing that all of the stu-
dents play the game.
No Single Professional Objective
"In the lit school, size and het-
erogenity are big factors.. There
Is no nice single professional ob-
jective. Many students are in col-
lege as a means toward business
administration school or dentistry.
There is often no sense of Identity
or responsibility toward the school,
per se," he added.
Literary college instructors ques-
tioned felt that the McCall charges
were unfounded.
"Each of us is subject to actions,
which, If made known, would be
embarassing," English Instructor
r David R. Weimer said. "And under
extreme conditions, there is prob-
ably no human being who doesn't
give way.
"I do know," he continued, "that
not all cases of plagiarism are re-
ported to the dean's office, usu-
ally because they are more readily
dealt with between individual stu-
dents and instructors. The stu-
dents are basically honest creat-
ures-like other people, including
the editors of McCall's magazine,"
Weimer concluded.
"I don't think there are any-
thing but a 'small percentage of
cheaters," psychology instructor
Harry Burdick said. "I have found
few in any course that I have as-
sisted in or taught."
"There is nothing to indicate
that cheaters outnumber non-
cheaters," Hubert English, instruc-
tor in the' English department,

said.
"There have been some cases
where I have suspected the possi-.
bility of plagiarism," English con-
tinued, "but as far as places where
plagiarism was certain, the cases,
have been relatively few and far
between."
Streiff Extols
Drivers' Care
Assistant Dean of Men Karl D.
Streiff yesterday commended re-
turned Florida vacationers, many
of whom are suffering the con-
sequences of over-indulgence in
solar activity.
According to Streiff, the Uni-
versity has been notified of no
serious automobile accidents to
date, "somewhat of a rarity when
you stop to consider how many
students make the annual jour-
ney."

REVIEW BOARD ITEM:
SGC Procedure
Matters Passed
By DICK SNYDER
Student Government Council last night took action on three
procedural items referred to it for consideration by the Review
Board.
Motions were passed relating to all three matters which arose
from the Board's consideration of SOC's recent 10-8 decision in
favor of spring rushing for the sorority system.
In regard to presidental voting privileges, the Council said,
"The chair possesses the right to vote in any matter that he chooses
by virtue of his membership- on

the Council as a duly elected
representative."
Simple Majority Decided
Answering the question as to
the vote required in major issues,
SGC stated, "A simple majority
shall govern all substantive Coun-
cil motions as provided for in Rob-
erts' Rules of Order."
A third motion stated that
"speaking privileges shall be pro-
vided as the issue arises under con-
ditions approved by the Council at
that time."
In addition to the motion on the
chair's voting rights, a consensus
resolution was also passed that "it
shall be custom for the chair to
announce his intention to vote"
prior to Council decision on a par-
ticular issue.
Council ,,resident Hank Berlin-
er, '56,. had voted against spring
rushing following the roll call vote
of otfer SGC members "in order
not. to sway in any, possible way
the vote of others."
New Miembers Welcomed.
Berliner welcomed the seven re-
cently-elected representatives to
the Council at last night's kneet-
M1ob Plann ed
Cole Att'ack
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. () - An
attack by more than 100 white
men had been planned on Negro
singer Nat I ing Cols as he sang at
the Municipal Auditorium, police
said yesterday.
Investigating officers said they
had determined that Tuesday's
attack, in which six men were
arrested, had been planned four
days before it took place.
Cole, whose soft renditions of
ballads has made him one of the
nation's most popular vocalists,
was shaken but unhurt when sev-
eral white men assaulted him
across the footlights while he was
singing before nearly 4,000 white
persons.
Detective C. B. Golden and De-
tective Sgt. M. H. House said they
had determined that the attack
was planned at a filling station
owned by one of the men from
Anniston, Ala.
Officers said they had learned
that a mob expected to total 150
men from Anniston, Piedmont,
Bessmer, Tuscaloosa and the Bir-
mingham area was to join at the
auditorium.
"Our information is that they
had planned to infiltrate the audi-
ence, overpower the band, the
police, and anyone else who inter-
fered with them," said Golden.
"But the expected mob failed to
show."'

ing and also recognized four of
the seven ex-officio members who
will sit in on SGC in the coming
term.
Five Council members to date
have indicated their desires to run
for officer positions in the elec-
tions tomorrow. Treasurer Bill
Adams, '57BAd, is running unop-
posed for President so far.
Rod Comstock, '56E, Janet
Neary, '58, and Tom Sawyer, '58,
are running for the office of Vice-
president, while Joe; Collins, '58,
is unoppgsed in the race for Treas-
urer.
Baad, Grimm Appointed
In other action, the Council
approved the appointments of
Daily MInaging Editor Dave Baad,.
'56, and Assembly President Jean-
nette Grimm, '57, to the all-Uni-
versity. Counseling Study Com-
mittee.
- Appointed as an alternate to the
Committee ,was Alicia Tarrant, '57
Ed. Twelve students were inter-
viewed for the two posts on the
study group which will be charged
by' Vice-President for Student Af-
faits James A. Lewis with investi-
gating the more than 17 University
agencies offering counseling serv-
ice to students.
It was also announced that this
semester's student-faculty-admin-
istration conference will be held
May 12 and will consist of a whole
day of discussion instead of the
previous half-day convocations.
Senior Office
Petitions Open.
Candidates for next year's senior
class'offices have from today until
April 020 to take out petitions for
the jobs they seek.
The officers, who will constitute
the Senior Board, will be elected
by this year's juniors on May 1
and 2. Each school and college will
elect a president, vice-president,
secretary and treasurer to the
Board.
Literary, Business -Administra-
tion and Engineering School cand-
idates may pick up petitions at
1020 Administration Bldg. Nduca-
tion school juniors interested in
running may get their petitions in
the Ed School lounge.
This is the first year in which
senior officers have been elected
separately from all-campus elec-
tions, according to Senior Board
president Bill Gardner, '56. The
change was made by a recent Stu-
dent Government Council vote,
and "is expected to-stimulate much
more interest than there has been
previously in senior class officers,"
Gardner explained.

Committee
To Propose'
Revised IHC
House Chiefs Would
Replace Delegates
By VERNON NAHRGANG
Completing several weeks of
work, a structure study committee
will report, to the Inter-House
Council today and recommend that
a presidium of house presidents
replace the present 48-delegate
council.
Further recommendations of the
committee will completely reno-
vate IHC's and the quadrangles'
committee systems.
The report, which Bill Hanks,
'56BAd, chairman of the structure
committee, calls "the result of a
thorough study of both the IHC
and quadrangle structures," will
be presented tonight.
In order for the newly recom-
mended structure to take effect,
the proposed constitution must
first be approved by a two-thirds
vote of the IHC. Then two-thirds
of the 23 quadrangle houses must
ratify the new constitution.
Board Must Approve
Finally, the proposed constitu-
tion would have to be ratified by
the Residence Halls Board of Gov-
ernors.
The major change, should the
new constitution be accepted,
would see a council of house presi-
dents established as the legislative
body of the IHC, and called the
Presidium.
In a five-page "Constitution
Rationale," the structure com-
mittee explained its recommenda-
tion:
"It is considered that the House
Presidents are the best possible
group for determining the policies
and activities of above-the-house
governments.
Presidents 'Cognizant'
"The presidents are considered
to be the most cognizant of in-
dividual house problems and needs,
the most representative of student
opinion, and as a group, the most
capable in the Residence Halls."
Another change in the pro-
posed constitution would keep
the same IHC cabinet of nine
officers, but none of them would
have voting privilege on the coun-
sel.
All officers would be elected by
the Presidium, and the president
would continue to be the repre-
sentative of the Residence Halls
to various campus bodies.
Committees Altered
Committee structure would be
altered by having a chairman and
a member from each quadrangle
on each committee.
The committeeman would then
chairman the corresponding com-
mittee in his own quadrangle,
with a member from each house
serving on the group.
Committee chairman H a n k s
summed up the end result of the
new constitution as he sees it.
"It will bring about the end of
duplication in IHC and quad-
rangle activities," he said, "and
will provide a more representa-
tive voice of student opinion in the
Residence Halls."

UN Leader,
Nasser Meet
In Mid-East
CAIRO, Egypt (P - United
Nations Secretary General Dag
Hammarskjold met Premier Gamal
Abdel Nasser and other top Egyp-
tian officials yesterday to urge
Arab-Israeli peace.
Last night there were new re-
ports of Arab violence in Israel
after a lull.
Israel announced Arab Com-
mandos struck again yesterday
night in a series of raids near Tel
Aviv. Three children and a school
teacher were killed while at eve-
ning prayers inda synagogue, the
Israeli army said.
Fifteen other persons were re-
ported injured.
An Israel Foreign Ministry offi-
cial in Jerusalem said the "conclu-
sion is inescapable that Egypt has
dispatched new forces to engage in
murder and sabotage inside Is-
rael."
Hammarskjold presented his
plea in a 75-minute conference
with Nasser. The Premier, in turn,
explained Egypt's views.
A well-informed Egyptian source
said the U.N. secretary general
submitted to Nasser proposals ap-
proved by the Security, Council for
easing Middle East tension.
The Council, in unanimously
aksing Hammarskjold a week ago
to undertake the peace mission,
proposed:
1. Withdrawal of rival forces
from the armistice demarcation
lines.
2. Full freedom of movement
for UN military observers along
these lines, in the demilitarized
zones and in the defensive areas of
both sides.
3. Establishment of local ar-
rangements for the prevention of
incidents and the prompt detection
of any truce violations.
Hammarskjold himself wouldn't
say what he talked about and de-
clined to confirm a published story
that he had lain before the Egyp-
tians a six-point program envisag-
ing a troop withdrawal and triple
fencing along the Egyptian-Israeli
borders
Interviewers
Needed For
Self-Survey
About 165 volunteers will be
needed for the interviewing phase
of the Ann Arbor Community Self-
Survey.
Mrs. E. S. Dudley, chairman of
the scheduling committee of the
survey, has announced that nine
three-hour training sessions will
be held between April 23 and 25.
Each interviewer will attend one
of the sessions to learn to use one
of the seven questionnaire forms
recently approved by the policy
committee of the Self-Survey.
They will then each conduct ap-
proximately five interviews, av-
eraging one hour each.
The seven groups to be inter-
viewed are: a cross-section of Ann
Arbor adults, new residents, Negro
residents, teenagers between the
ages of 14 and 17, community or-
ganizations and labor union offic-
lals.
Individuals, including students,,
interested in interviewing may
contact either Mrs. Dudley or an-
other member of her committee,
Mrs. Doris Reed Rummon of the

Board of Religious Counsellors.
At the recent policy committee
meeting several ,suggested im-
provements in the questionnaires
were referred back to the com-
mittees working on them for in-
corporation.
Eight new sponsoring organi-
zations, including the University
chapter of the American Associ-
ation of University Professors,
were revealed to have joined the

Camp Fund Drive
Sets $5,000 Goal

N

By BILL HANEY
Over 1000 faculty members, students and townspeople manned
buckets this morning to seal pink tags for funds for Fresh Air Camp
Tag Day.
Forty posts throughout campus and downtown areas will be
open from 8 a.m .to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow to collect contributions
for the 35th annual Tag Day.
Funds from the drive make up one-third of the camp's budget.
Other expenses, such as academis, administrative, and maintenance,
are covered by the University's Summer Session.
Bob Stahl, '58, IntraFraternity Council publicity chairman, set
the goal for this year's drive at $5,000. Junior IFC and Junior Pan-
Hellenic are two of the student "
organizations promoting the
money-raising campaign.
This is the amp's 36th year of
operation. It was started with the
purpose of giving an opportunity
for a vacation for underprivileged
children in southeastern Michigan.
The University's Institute for
Human Adjustment took over the
program in 1946. Since then 'the
camp has become a workshop for
University men and women.

White House
Sets High Rigid
Price Supports
WASHINGTON (A) -- Congress
passed its battle-scarred farm bill
last night, handing President
Dwight D. Eisenhower one of the
worst legislative defeats since lie
entered the White House.
The election year measure offers
farmers an extra three billion dol-
lars in benefits during this grow-
ing season, including high, rigid
price supports which Pres. Eisen-
hower opposes.
Many , Republican leaders in
Congress predicted the President
will veto the legislation. Demo-
crats and farm belt Republicans
equally confident he would sign it,
some saying he had no other
course.
House Vote 237-181
Action on the controversial bill
was completed by the Senate,
which voted approval shortly after
9:10 p.m. The House passed It,
237-181 earlier in the day.
On the 50-35 rollcall by which
the Senate approved the measure
15 Republicans voted with 35 Dem-
ocrats for passage. Four Demo-'
crats joined 31 Republican In o-
posing the bill.
-Now. the bill goes to the White
House for a decision which will
echo loudly through the presiden-
tial campaign this fall. If Pres.<
Eisenhower refuses to sign it, there
may well be no farm relief legisla-
tion this year.
GOP Last-Ditch Fight
It came after the GOP leader-/-
ship made a last-ditch fight in the
House to send the bill back to a.
congressional conference commit-
tee for major revision to make it
more acceptable to the administra-.
tion.
But the ledership failed to keep
farm belt Republican in line In
either branch of Congress.
As approved by Congress, the bill
virtually plows under much of the
Administration's agricultural pro-
gram.
Flexible Supports Scrapped
It gives the President the soil
bank plan he wants to cut down
the production of surplus crops,
but scraps the flexible price- sup-
port system he fought for and won
after a hard congressional battle
two years ago.
In the place of flexible suports,
Congress voted to support major
crops-wheat, corn, cotton, rice
and peanuts-at 90 per cent of
parity.
The Administration contends
supports at 90 per cent of parity
would nullify the effects of the
soil bank, adding to the surplus
problem and hurting farmers more
than it would help them.
Unacceptable to Benson
Secretary of Agriculture Ezra
Taft Benson has declared the 1956
bill unacceptable to him.
After the earlier House vote,
White House Press Secretary
James C. Hagerty said the Presi-
dent "still does not think the bill
meets the test of a good bill.", His
statement was made in Augusta, -
Ga., where Pres. Eisenhower is
golfing between spells of work.
Just before the senate vote, Sen.
George D. Aiken (R-Vt.), senior
GOP member of the. Agriculture
Committee, said the bill was "total.
ly unacceptable to the administra-
tion" and urged his colleagues to
vote against it.
He indicated he expected Pres
Eisenhower to veto it.

"It is almost the same as work-

ductor-composer Matteo Glinski of
his job as music editor of "L'Osser-
vatore' Romano, Vatican daily
newspaper.
Glinski will speak at 4:15 today
and Tuesday in'Rackham assembly
hall on "some New Aspects of
Chopin." He will be assisted 'b
pianist William Doppman.
The lectures are based on Glin-
ski's third book about Chopin, The
Secret Life of Chopin, which deals
with the "artistic and the human"
qualities of the man.
He said that it was a new con-
ception-based on letters found
recently. The idea is "an absolute
contrast to the conception handed
down through the past century."
Glinski will deal with "problems
of psychoanalysis and sociology,"
but would be no more specific.
"This," he said with a smile,
