Sorority Council
Move Questioned
Reported Under Internal Criticism
For Suspension of Two Chapters
Sigma Kappa's national council is reportedly under criticism from
within the national sorority for its action in suspending its local
chapters at Cornell and Tufts Universities.
While the national council has consistently refused to give any
specific reasons for the suspensions other than "the good of the whole
sorority," both chapters pledged Negroes last spring.
According to SGC treasurer Joe Collins, '58, "it has been rumored
that there is a certain amount of unconstitutionality on the part of
the national council."
Several Issues Involved
There are several possible issues involved. Aside from the ques-
Ttion of the propriety of suspend-

'To Consider
Sigma Kappa
Student Government Council is
expected to consider the status of
Sigma Kappa sorority at its meet-
Ang at 7:30 p.m. today in the
SGC treasurer Joe Collins, '58,
predicted yesterday that "it will
be recommended that some type
of a limited study group will be
set up withdinstructions to report
back as soon as is feasible."
He commented he felt that "in
light of the attitude of the na-
tional, the burden of proof lies
with the sorority."
Sigma Kappa's national council
has refused to specify why it sus-
pended its chapters at Tufts and
Cornell Universities, both of which
pledged Negro women.
Collins and other SGC members
have expressed the view that if it
is determined that the local chap-
ter is subject to suspension should
it pledge Negro women, it would
be in violation of University regu-
lations for recognized campus or-
Collins also commented that "it
Swould be advantageous -to the
whole situation "If the local soror-
ity would take a stand on the
action of the national sorority
council and its local implications.
Also on the Council agenda is
an appointment to fill the posi-
tion left vacant by the resignation
of former Daily City Editor Jim
Dygert, '56BAd. The temporary
appointment will be effective until
SGC elections in November.

In Water Bill
The University hasn't given the
city any indication of how much it
will contribute towards the $900,
000 water bill which development
of North Campus will entail, in-
formed sources claimed yesterday.
At a City Council meeting Mon-
day Ann Arbor Mayor William
E. Brown reported that the Uni-
versity is willing to pay only $60,-
000 to $100,000.
City officials also claimed they
had originally estimated a Univer-
sity contribution of 75 per cent of
the $900,000.
University officials said they
were still waiting for the results
of an engineering study of the area
and didn't know where the city's
figures came from.
They claimed they hadn't indi-
cated anything to the city yet be-
cause they hadn't seen results of
the study.
The issue was raised at a special
council meeting called to consider
what the city could do to hold the
interest of Parke, Davis which is
considering building a ten million
dollar research laboratory on the
North Campus.

ing chapters-if it were in fact
the reason-for pledging Negroes,
several sources have reported dis-1
sension within the national on the
question of the national council's
authority to suspend locals.
For one thing, the timing of the
suspensions-less than one month
after the adjournment of Sigma
Kappa's national convention on
July 1-has been a subject of some
Jane Otto, president of the
Michigan province of Sigma
Kappa, commented during -her
current Ann Arbor visit that she
could not think of any hypotheti-
cal situation justifying suspension
which might have arisen soley
during July.
Heard Nothing;
Mrs. Otto reported, however,
tha she "hadn't heard a word" of
any dispute within the national
sorority on the issue of power to
Herdconcern, she added, is
mainly with matters in the Mich-
igan province.
If any suspension were to be
made by the convention itself, Mrs.
Otto continued, it could only be
made on the floor of the lobby, and
no discussion of the status of
either the Tufts or the Cornell
groups occurred on the floor.
She refused for want of fact
to discuss the propriety of the
council's suspension of locals for
actions which may have occured
months before the convention,,
which is the supreme governing
body of the national sorority.
Question Rumored
Another question which has
been rumored at issue is that of
whether the five-woman council
can take action on an issue as im-
portant as suspensions withou't
the approval of the sorority's
larger executive board.
A third possible constituational
issue is whether "the good of the
sorority" is sufficient grounds for
the suspension of a local, especially
in absence of both specific charges
and supporting evidence.

Known Violations
Put at 'Under 25'
Several violations of the new
University driving regulations have
been reported since strict enforce-
ment began at 8 a.m. Monday.
Setting the number of violations
at "under 25," Assistant Dean of
(Men Karl D. Streiff explained
little would be known' about exact
number or types of violations until
University Patrol reports are gone
over at the end of this week.
Cars have been stopped for ac-
cidents, parking violations, and
improper display of decals. Ac-
cording to Streiff, the majority of
drivers stopped have been given
"educational counseling" on the
new rules.
"At the moment, our concern is
mainly to give students an oppor-
tunity to register their cars and
time to dispose of unauthorized
cars," Streiff said.
4,045 Permits Issued
To date, the Office of Student
Affairs has granted 3,975 exempt
permits, 25 commuting ermits, 15
business permits, four ealth per-
mits and 26 storage permits, bring-
ing the total to 4,045, slightly more
than OSA's minimum estimate of
However, Streiff anticipates at
least 1,000 more students will reg-
ister their cars during the coming
year, bringing the total to slightly
more than the maximum 5,000
Although the number of cars
now on campus falls well below
last year's official 4,800,. the Ann
Arbor Police Department's Traffic
Bureau has noted a marked up-
swing in congestion.
Congestion is mainly due to in-
crease in the parking problem, ac-
cording to Lt. Harrison Schlupe,
of the Traffic Bureau. An average
of almost 450 tickets per day has

Britain, France Battle
Egypt's tNAccusation
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (R) - France and Britain fought with
evident bitterness yesterday to beat down Egypt's counter-attack
against them in the Suez Canal controversy.
A procedural wrangle is expected when the United Nations
Security Council meets at 2 p.m. today for the first round on the
new case, just two months after Egyptian President Gamal A.
Nasser seized the canal.
The result is in doubt. The United States kept its stand secret
but the Soviet Union was reported backing Egypt in the developing
UN battle over the 103-mile waterway.

Association Not Enjoyed
YR President Lewis Engman, '57,
claimed yesterday he asked Prof.

denied, Engman said, because
"Brandt.said the University would
not enjoy the association with a
partisan political address."
When confronted later with
Engman's statement, Prof. Brandt
a dm it t ed "we mentioned- TV
rights," but that he didn't under
stand that the YR leader was ask-
ing "formally."
When asked by The Daily if he
had informed Engman of the for-

necessitated a written form and
that "the Secretary often handles
routine matters when no contro-
versial issues such as subversion

Engman revealed that his group
sought TV rights because Gov.
Dewey's speech will be his election

in beaming the broadcast across

For Farmers
PEORIA, Ill. (R) - President

He said his administration is
making "good progress" toward
that goal.
President Eisenhower told a
cheering audience that overflowed
the 10,000 person capacity of
Bradley University Fieldhouse that
the rigid price support program
endorsed by rival Adlai E. Steven-
son is a "political grab bag" that
holds nothing but "mockery and
deceit" for the farmers.
The President employed the
most forceful language he has
used in the campaign in mount-
ing, in a nationally televised
speech, a scathing indictment of
Democratic policies of the past
and present.
He did not mention Stevenson
by name, but he referred scorn-
fully to the "price depressing"
programs of the Democrats and
accused them of "politicking at
the farmers' expense,"
Accompanied by Mr . Eisenhow-
er, the President fleW here from
