In Till Case
JACKSON, Miss. ()-The Jack-
son Daily News yesterday accused
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
of holding three Negro witnesses
in the Till kidnap-murder case
captive in Chicago.
The accusation came in a copy-
righted story by staffer Bill Spell,
who went to Chicago to question
the three Negro witnesses.
The three Negroes, the story
said "are now being held 'captive'
in the deepest part of Chicago's
South Side Negro section by the
National Assn. for the Advance-

Spell named the three as Mrs.
Mandy Bradley, Mose Wright and
Willie Reed, and said the NAACP

Dean of Men Cites
East Quad Success
Inter-House Council President
Tom Bleha, '56, yesterday expres-
sed hopes the new.dorm would be
for coeducational living.
Although it has been assumed
recently the dorm would be for
women only, no definite action has
been taken yet by the Residence
Halls Board of Governors.
Study Needed
Bleha said, "My own personal
feeling is that new dorms should
be coed." He stressed, however,
that a lot of study is needed before
final decision is made.
Main reason for wanting coed
dorms, according to Bleha, has
been the tremendous success of
coed living in East Quadrangle.
"Any expression of student opin-
ion I've ever heard has indicated
thorough satisfaction with coed
living quarters," Bleha comment-
East Quad Cited
Dean of Men Walter B. ReaI
said the East Quad arrangement
has been a success "from both the
administration and student point
of view."
A possible objection to making
the new dorm coed, according to
Dean Rea, is its anticipated lo-
cation. (Although no site has been
chosen, all locations under con-
sideration are in the vicinity of
dorm hill.)
Realize Value
However, Dean Rea commented
"We all realize the value of a coed
system," and said he thought the
trend would be in the direction of
coed living.
The Dean of Men said he
thought North Campus construc-
tion might lead to coed dorms.
Both Bleha and Dean Rea gave,
as a prime reason for favoring
coed living, the more normal soc-
ial relations that result. "It helps
remove artificiality," Bleha com-
Hold Status Quo
East Quad President Bob War-
rick, '56, said he was "very much
in favor of having East Quad re-.
main coed." He said he thought
the general consensus of opinion
favored holding the status quo.
President of Prescott House
Brenda Wehbring, '56, also came
out strongly in favor of keeping
the present arrangement.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said that al-
though it has always been assum-
ed Prescott and Tyler Houses
would be returned to the men if
a new dorm were built, final dis-
position of the houses is still up
to the Residence Halls Board.
