SGC's 'Representative'
Evokes Local Comment

Sneak Preview

Honeymoons To Highlight
Two Couples' Vacations


"Good, but room for improve-
ment" seemed to be the general
opinion of students as they read
the first issue of Student Govern-
ment Council's bulletin, "The Rep-

administration heads, the four-

work of SGC to views on the po-

Baxter Case
T o o Before
District Court
Bolza Baxter, chairman of the
Michigan Labor Youth League,
will go on trial for contempt . of
Congress Feb. 2 before Judge Ar-
thur E. Lederle in the Federal Dis-
trict Court.
Baxter refused to comply with
the demand of a subpoena of the
Un -American Activities Subcom-
mittee, headed by forrher Rep. Kit
Clardy, to produce the books, mem-
bership list, financial records and
minutes of the Michigan Labor
Youth League.
Pleaded 'Not Guilty
Cited for contempt in July, 1954,
the 30-year-old Detroiter pleaded
"not guilty" before Judge Thomas
P. Thornton and was released on
$10,000 personal bond.
Facing a possible year in jail,
Baxter contends that a Con-
gressional committee does not have
'the "right to demand the records
and membership list of a youth
Scope Limited
Before the Un-American Acti-
vities Subcommittee he claimed
the scope of the committee was
limited by the First, Fourth and
Fifth Amendments to the Consti-
The First Amendment, Baxter
said, prohibited the committee
from invading the area of thought,
inquiry, speech and assembly.
The Fourth Amendment protects
the public against illegal search
and seizure, and prohibits a "fish-
ing expedition into the books,
records and papers of the Labor
Youth League" or any other or-
ganization, he claimed.
Raising Funds
Baxter added that the Fifth
Amendment guarantees due proc-
ess, violated by the committee's
Baxter is currently raising funds
for his defense. Holding that la-
bor has a vital stake in the out-
come of the trial, Baxter charged,
"In its subpoena to me, the Un-
American Activities Subcommittee
reached out for the means to de-
stroy any organization it may
choose through the intimidation
of its members."

Expressing the view that "there
still is much to be desired," John
Calvin, '56, said, "Basically, the
idea of having a bulletin to get
information back to the students
from SGC is good."
Calvin said that the Council,
"by editorializing, might find that
this is the answer to the problem
of creating more student interest
in SGC'
Specific Issues Suggested j
Gail Glover, '56, agreed with
Calvin that "it is a good idea,"
but commented, "I think the bul-
letin would be more effective and
more complete if it concentrated
on specific issues brought up in the
Viewing the publication as "a
long-needed project," Jerry Gross-
man, '58, added, "with a little
improvement, it could prove in-
valuable in increasing participa-
tion in SGC, especially the Ad-
ministrative Wing."
SGC Public Relations Commit-
tee chairman Tom Sawyer, '58,
under whose supervision "The
Representative" originated, said
that the initial publication of 3,500
copies is still being distributed to
house lounges and dormitory in-
formation desks.
In addition, it has been. mailed
to all house and organization
presidents and interested adminis-
Reach Outside Daily Readership
Sawyer views "The Representa-
tive" as "a means of developing
student opinion and reaching stu-
dents outside of Daily readership.
"The January issue is primarily
introductory in nature," Sawyer
said. "Following issues will be
concerned with such possible sub-
jects as explanation of the duties
of a particular committee, inter-
views with people in the adminis-
tration and special announcements,
such as open petitioning."

Student calendars for the be-
tween-semester vacation are filled
with plans for everything from
Florida trips to library browsing,
but few can claim more filled
agendas than those of four Uni-
versity students.
Sari Barker, '56 and Ed Ravens-
croft, '57A&D, and Irene Kellogg,
'56Ed. and . Gerry VanOtteren,
'56A&D, are the students in ques-
tion: both couples are to be mar-
ried over the vacation.
Furniture vs. Finals
"Taking finals while you're try-
ing to choose furniture on the
side is different, if not easy," Miss
Barker commented as she checked
the latest letter from her mother
about wedding plans.
"It's hard," she added, "when
everything has to be done by re-
mote control this way." Her fam-
ily lives in Corning, N.Y., where
she and Ravenscroft will be mar-
"But if you don't like June wed-
dings and want to find an apart-
ment, this is about the only way
to arrange things," Miss Barker
Bridal-Shower Breaks
Miss Kellogg has found a unique
means of taking study-breaks':
bridal showers given by her cam-
pus friends. "It's much more fun
than just having coffee or some-
thing," she smiled, "and, for me,
a lot more- profitable."
"The hardest thing about a be-
tween-semester wedding," she de-
cided, "is trying to plan color
schemes for bridesmaids who come
from all over the country. The
final result will be a surprise to
me as well as to them.-
Honeymoon Ski Trip
Her Grand Rapids wedding to
VanOtteren will be followed by
three days of skiing for a honey-
moon. "Then," she said, "we'll
have a big job to do: moving into
our apartment, as well as getting
ready for the new semester."
Neither couple regrets the lack
of time for the usual relaxing va-
cation. "It might be nice to have

months with nothing to do but
address wedding invitations." Miss
Barker mused as she leafed
through a bride's magazine, "but
it doesn't really matter."
