's Leaders Today
J-Hop will take place during
registration for the first time in
its 70-year history due to the lack
of a semester break in the new cal-
The dance will be held from 9:30
p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday, Feb. 4.
Previously the University's latest
weekend, the dance was held be-
tween semesters. A calendar
change does away with the usual
inter-semester period by having
the first semester end Feb. 2 and
the second start Feb. 4.
Change Was 'Shocking'
Stevan Simich, J-Hop general
chairman, said, "the idea of hav-
irg J-Hop on a Monday and Tues-
day was initially shocking, but
the J-Hop Central Committee
feels that the advantages of hav-
ing it at this time outweigh the
disadvantages of the other avail-
An alternate solution would
have been to have the dance the
Friday and Saturday following the
start of second semester classes.
This would have interfered not
only with classes, but also with the
traditional customs of J-Hop, he
With the present schedule, the
"dead week" that occurred at the
time the dance was previously
held, will be eliminated.
1957 J-Hop will not interfere,
with the academic proceedings,
Marilyn Houck, publicity chair-
man said. Students will not have
to cut their vacations short to
come back early, she added. Bands
will be available during the week.
Miss Houck mentioned several
other advantages to the new date.
First, residence halls will be open.
Since they were originally closed,
coeds formerly stayed at the men's
houses. Off campus women will
still be accomodated. Coeds may
again stay at fraternities.
Second, special late permissions
of 4:00 a.m., Monday and 2:30
a.m. Tuesday will be issued. No

"Soviet leadership in Commu-
nism is suffering its greatest post-
war setback," Prof. Leland ,StoweE
of the journalism department said
Addressing a group of students
and faculty, the foreign war cor-
respondent and Pulitzer Prize
winner discussed nine aspects of
Moscow's crisis, events that have
led to the "biggest Communist
split since World War II,
1. Rebellion in the satellites.
"Poland," he said, "poses as a
tough problem for the men in the
politburo.' For the first time in
10 years. the "wholesale robbery
of a satellite's economy" has been
Reverse Policy in Poland
Moscow had to cancel Poland's
war debts and send her grain.
"That must have really hurt the
Soviets . . . who have never given
anything except for a purpose,"
Prof. Stowe continued.
2. The 'rape of Hungary has re-
vealed that Soviet-trained armies
are not reliable after 10 years of
"Greatest Mass Murder ..."
No one knows, he continued,
how many millions of people in
Soviet satellites have been loaded
into boxcars and shipped to Si-
beria to be worked to death. "So-
viet boxcar transportation" has
resulted in the "greatest mass
murders in all history."j
3. Marshall Tito of Yugoslavia
"has emerged with adamant de-
fiance of Moscow-" Tito is ac-
cused of sowing disunity in the
Communist world by denouncing
Soviet policies, Prof. Stowe said,
but Moscow is tendering him the
4. Naked imperialism has been
unmasked after the Kruschev-
Bulganin pretense of good fel-
Split in Politburo
5. There has been a split among
the men in the Politburo. Krus-
chev, Prof. Stowe commented,
lost face with his colleagues when
he exposed Stalin last spring. Now'
the Soviets will keep him in top
place as a "useful window dress-
ing," but the leadership probleni
6. Soviet economy, strength and
future progresss has been dealt
a grave blow. "Moscow has been
milking her satellites for years,"
Prof. Stowe said. "Now she has
to reverse her tactics."
A permanent non-stop crisis in
underproduction for her own pop-
ulation exists, he added.
7. Moscow-Peiping relationships
are straining. Communist China's
premier supports nationalist com-
munism in Poland, Prof. Stowe
8. Moscow has committed her-
self to risky intervention in theI
Middle East. "The temptation for
the Soviets to move into the Mid-
dle East before they are ready is
high," the professor remarked.
9. Incredible and shattering
failure of Soviets and the Com-
munist party to indoctrinate
youth to be reliable Communists.

will be held from 9:30 p.m. to 4 a.m., Monday and 9:30 p.m. to

ing the academic year, when 1:30
is the limit. The driving ban will
also be lifted for J-Hop days.
"If we had J-Hop during the
school year we would lose the
tradition of women staying in
fraternity houses and the special
late permissions that really make
the dance," Miss Houck summar-

Winter is off to a fast start both weather-wise and party-wise
as snow covers the ground and a full slate of activities is scheduled
for the weekend.
Pledge formals dominate the scene. Tonight "Sons of the Stars"
will attend the Beta Theta Pi pledge formal with Bill Bottomley
and his band providing the music. A dark blue false ceiling and gold
stars will decorate the dance room.
Alpha Omicron Pi honors pledges at a dinner and dance this
evening in the Veteran of Foreign Wars Hall, while the pledges of
Zeta Tau Alpha are honored at the White Violet Ball in the Hussey
Rm. of the League.

Delta pledge formal. "Easy" street decorations will provide atmos-
phere. Blue, white and red will prevail at Kappa Delta's pledge for-
mal this evening. (Blue and white are the predominating colors in
the decorations and Red Johnson and his band will play.)
Piles of snow, artificial of course, will help decorate the Zeta
Psi house for their pledge formal tomorrow evening. Entitled "Winter
Wonderland,' the dance will feature the music of Paul Brodie.
An old-fashioned Christmas will be the theme of Delta Gamma's
pledge formal this evening. The Dearborn Country Club will be the
scene of Kappa Sigma's pledge formal also being held tonight. To-
morrow evening the chapter will attend a dinner-dance at the Mich-

during intermission. A magic show and a twirling exhibition will
also be held during intermission.
To "turn the trick", pledges of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are hold-
