TILL CASE:
*Grand ,Jury
Frees Two
Of Charges
GREENWOOD, Miss. (P)-A Le-
fore County grand jury yesterday
declined to indict two white men
on charges of kidnaping Emmett
Louis Till.
The decision freed Roy Bryant,
24 years old, and his half brother,
J. W. Milam, 36 years old, of all
charges in the famous case.
A trial jury in nearby Sumner
six weeks ago found the store-
keepers innocent of murdering
Till.
Judge Discharges
Circuit Judge Arthur Jordan an-
nounced the grand jury's decision
to waiting newsmen after he dis-
charged the 20-man, all white
grand jury.
Bryant and Milam reportedly
were working in nearby cotton
fields and could not be reached
immediately for comment.
The grand jury's action can
celed the $10,000 bonds each posted
for freedom while waiting for a
decision in the kidnaping case.
Charged With Kidnaping
The half brothers were charged
in Leflore County with kidnaping
last Aug. 28 after Mose Wright,
64 years old, Till's sharecropper
uncle, said two white men took
Till away for allegedly making
obscene remarks to Mrs. Bryant.
A body was found in the Talla-
hatchie River three days later.
Wright and Till's mother, Mrs.
Mamie Bradley of Chicago, identi-
fied it as Till..
But defense attorneys in the
rnurder trial presented three wit-
nesses, including a doctor and an
undertaker, who testified that the
M body had been in the water too
long to be Till.
Wright and Willie Reed, 18 years
old, were called by the grand jury
Tuesday.
The other witnesses before the
grand jury included Sheriff George
Smith and Deputy John Ed Coth-
ran.
Admit Taking Till
Sheriff Smith and his deputy
told the murder trial jury that
Bryant and Milam admitted tak-
ing Till from Wright's farm shack
in Money but said they freed him
unharmed when they found he
was the wrong person.
Reed's halting testimony had
placed Milam with Till several
hours after the two men said they
released the boy, who was vaca-
tioning in Mississippi when he dis-
appeared.
Mrs. Bradley, mother of the Till
boy, commented in Chicago:
"Just about everything has run
out on me now. I don't know what
to say. I don't see how they could
fail to indict those men.
ick Dubois
As Governor
Of Morocco
PARIS () - France yesterday
named a new governor for Moro-
cco in expectation that Sultan Mo-
hamed Ben Youssef will return
there next week and demand home
w rule.
The government picked Andre
Dubois, a career administrator who
was born of French parents in
Bone, Algeria. In 16 months as
Paris police chief he made a name
for himself by silencing noisy auto

horns and barring trucks from the
capital's narrow streets in busy
afternoon hours.
Dubois' title will be French res-
ident general in Morocco. Under
the present treaty between France
and Morocco, he will not only rep-
resent French interests as ambas-
sador to the Sultan but handle all
foreign affairs. Under France's
system of "direct administration,"
the resident general is the real
ruler of the "protectorate."
Ben Youssef, exiled for his
nationalism but brought back un-
der nationalist pressure, wants to
change all that. The French gov-
ernment is willing, but how much
freedom Morocco will get depends
on negotiation.

At ten p.m. last night 18 resignations had been received by Chief
Casper M. Enkemann, fatigued after six or eight hours of conference

Enkemann said he could not hazard a guess as to whether more

resignations would be re-submitted

withdraw them Saturday, waiting

Hisses and catcalls drowned out dialogue when Anton Chekov's
play, "The Seagull" was first produced at the Alexandrinsky Theater
in Petersburg.
A few years later, the play was received with enthusiasm when it
was presented by Moscow Art Theatre, an organization which has
adopted a seagull as its emblem.

Republicans
In Elections
WASHINGTON (P)-Democrats
drew fresh hope for 1956 yester-
day from scattered election vic-
tories that gave them a record-
smashing victory in the Kentucky
governorship race and pushed
them ahead in such battleground
states as Pennsylvania, Indiana
and Connecticut.
There were some Republican ad-
vances too, here and there, but
virtually complete returns from
Tuesday's state and municipal el-
ections showed a clear net advan-
tage to the Democrats in the mat-
ter of orginizational strength for
next year's presidential election.
Interest focused yesterday on
Indiana where sweeping Demo-
cratic gains in mayoral contests
pointed up Democratic claims of
farm belt unrest over Eisenhower
administration agricultural polic-
ies.
In Kentucky, former Baseball
Commissioner A. B. "Happy"
Chandler was elected governor by
a landslide approaching 150,000
votes over Republican Edwin R.
Denny-despite a bitter primary
fight that split the Democratic
party.

Changes in the present driving
regulations were tentatively ap-
proved at yesterday's meeting of
Student Government Council's
driving ban study committee.
Basically, any student over 21
years old but not in academic dif-
ficulties would be allowed to oper-
ate an automobile in Ann Arbor
under the propositions submitted
for consideration by study sub-
committee members Prof. Roger
IW. Heyns of the psychology de-
partment-and former Daily Man-
aging Editor Gene Hartwig, '58L.
OSA Permission
Student not 21 would be able to
operate cars only on permission of
the Office of Student Affairs.
Present driving ban rules limit
student operation of cars to two
general groups: those over 2$
years and those possessing per-
mits issued by the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs.
The ten-member study commit-
tee, appointed last spring by SGC,
also recommended in their initial
report a series of stringent en-
forcement penalties.
Violation of all but one driving
rule would be considered "grounds
to send the student home for one
full semester."

OSU Rally
Proposals
By GAIL GOLDSTEIN
Plans for entertainment follow-
ing the Ohio State pep rally were
heard at Student Government
Council meeting last night. {
Chairman of the pep rally com-
mittee, Myki Gold, '58, reported
to the Council that Intramural
Building was not available for a
dance following the rally as was
formerly planned.
Miss Gold said the four quad-
rangles, women's dorms, Interfra-
ternity Council and other groups
on campus had been contacted to
hold record dances for participants
to attend after the rally. She said
quadrangles had already indicated
willingness to hold dances in all of
the men's dorms the night of the
rally.
Tabbed for consideration and
study was the motion by Dick
Good, '56 that at the end of the
'55-'56 fiscal year excess funds
of the Council should be used to
absorb Student Book Exchange
deficits.
A Cinema Guild report was ac-
cepted by the Council with recom-
mendation that the summer oper-'
ation of the Guild be considered
in the future.

in their appointment of the
study group, which consists of,
prominent city officials and busi-
nessmen as well as students, fac-
ulty and administration, the Coun-
cil specified that the group report
back to SGC within eight weeks
from the beginning of this fall
semester. This would mean a re-
port to the Nov. 22 session of the
Council.
First proposition passed by the
committee was that the Regent's
By-law, Sec. 8.05. be changed so
that "No students while in atten-
dance at the University may op-
erate motor vehicles except under
regulations set down by the Office
of Student Affairs."
Present By-Law Explained
Present By-law regulation-
states: "No student while in at-
tendance at the University shall
operate any motor vehicle. In ex-
ceptional and extraordinary cases
at the discretion of the bean of
Men, this rule may be relaxed."
Both present and proposed rules
call for "disciplinary action by the
proper University authorities" in
cases of violations.
After discussion, the committee,
decided that the proposed change
in driving regulations would be
proper only if the present By-law
were changed by the Regents.
Discourage Unnecessary Operation
Summarily, the propositions ap-
proved by the group stated that
it is necessary to discourage stu-
dents from unnecessary operation
of cars in Ann Arbor through "ec-
onomically and efficiently en-
forced" restrictions, with enforce-
ment in part a matter of student
responsibility.
All students who would operate
cars in Ann Arbor would be re-
quired to register with the Office
of Student Affairs.
Permission to operate a car
would be granted to all students
who are or will be 21 during the
semester of registration. This per-
mission would be conditional upon
proof that the applicant has at
least a two-point average, or "con-
sent of an appropriate official in
their college or school" if below
the honor point average.

Ann Arbor's Board of Education,
made further plans last night for:
opening its new high school to the
public from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Although the new structure is!
still under construction, officials
are permitting it to be opened so
townspeople may see parts of the
building in advance of a coming
referendum for more school facili-
ties.
Scheduled to be completed the!
first of the year, the $6,000,000
building, located on Stadium Blvd.
at Main St., replaces the old high
school which is to become Univer-I
sity property.
Principal Nicholas Schreiber ex-
plained the purpose of the inspec-
tional tour is "to give the tax-
