Inter-Fraternity Council members at the University of Oregon
filled out questionnaires on racial clauses of national fraternities.
The questionnaire asked fraternity presidents:
"Does your fraternity at the present time have in ts constitution
a formally stated racial and/or religious clause?
"If so, would you please state the clause?
"Are your local members in favor or opposed to such a clause?
"If you have a clause, is your national acting upon it? If so, what
measures have been taken?
"If you do not have such a clause at the present time, has your
fraternity ever had one? When and how was the situation dealt with?"
The first political party at the University of California was organ-

Ben-Dor Describes Temples

Caananite temples, an early
Christian church, and a fortress
used by King Herod were des-
cribed yesterday in a lecture given
by Immanuel Ben-Dor, deputy di-
rector of Antiquities for Israel.
Sponsored by the Department
of Near-Eastern Studies and Hil-
lel, the talk was entitled "Recent
Excavations in Israel."
Ben-Dor, who is at present a
visiting lecturer in the Harvard
Divinity School, showed slides and
gave accounts of recent, findings
of sites and relics dating from the
eighth century B.C. to Medieval
Emphasizes Biblical Places
He emphasized excavations
which explained or illustrated spe-
cific references in the Bible.
"Since archaeology began to
work in the Near East, particular
attention has been paid to bibli-
cal sites," Ben-Dor said. "Other-
wise antiquities are not as impos-
ing in Palestine as in Egypt or
He explained that Palestine
never had a powerful state and
thus did not build imposing
temples and monuments which
ordinarily promote excavations.
Describes Department
Ben-Dor described the work of
the Department of Antiquities,
which was established by Great
Britain in 1918 and later taken
over by Israel when the nation
was formed in 1948.
"Antiquities in Israel has be-
come a major task," Ben-Dor ex-
plained. "With the great degree
of building going on at present,
much is being uncovered."
Examples of relics excavated in
recent years include a pottery ves-
sel containing seven cups attached
to a common base.
Ben-Dor said this discovery
may be a prototype of the seven

This relic, Ben-Dor explained,
refers to the biblical description
of Solomon importing gold from a
mysterious country - Ophir.

Back Right
To Listen
University and college students
should be allowed to hear any
speaker they wish to, the Ameri-
can Association of University Pro-
fessors said last week.
Meeting in New York City for
its forty-third annual convention,
the Association affirmed "its own
belief that it is educationally de-
sirable that students be con-
fronted with diverse opinions of
all kinds."
. Theconference was attended by
more than 200 delegates from fac-
'ulty groups throughout the coun-
try. The Association has 37,500
members at 1,000 accredited col-
leges and universities.
Passes Resolution
The stand on speakers came in.
a resolution which declared that
"any person, who is presented by
a recognized student or faculty
organization, should be allowed to
speak on a college or university
campus." It asserted "the right
of college and university students
to listen to anyone whom they
wish to hear."
In another resolution, the or-
ganization criticized schools where
pressure is brought against stu-
dents and faculty members who
belong to organizations seeking
the lawful elimination of segrega-
tion in education.
Deplores Discrimination
Deploring any legislation or ad-
ministrative action that would
prevent membership in such an
organization, the association said
that the annual meeting "notes
with alarm the loss, and threat-
ened further loss, of teachers and
students by institutions of higher
learning subject to repressive
laws and social forces in sections
of the country where the princi-
ples enunciated by the United
States Supreme Court with re-
spect to racial desegregation are
being resisted."
Views on desegregation held by
some faculty members in the
South had caused their dismissal,
it was reported by the commit-
tee on academic freedom and ten-
ure at the opening session of the
conference on Friday.
Warning Issued
The committee warned that a
serious situation might be "brew-
ing" with regard to possible furth-
er dismissals.
An original resolution which
specified that teachers and stu-
dnets had the right to member-
ship in "The National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People or any other group," was
changed for the final one after
considerable discussion.
The association also warned col-
leges and universities not to sac-
rifice professional standards of
teaching and research in attempt-
ing to meet the demands of in-
creased enrollments in the years

By The Associated Press
The latest episode in America's
centuries-old "give me your
homeless" saga ends tomorrow
with the closing of the Kilmer
Reception Center to any more
new refugees.
But although the stage - a de-
mothballed Army camp - is fold-
ing, thousands of Hungarian refu-
gees will remember it with deep
and mixed sentiments.
For between Thanksgiving and
Easter, the center was the fir~st
American home to some 30,000 es-
capees from Communist tyranny.
As many as 2,044 checked in dur-
ing a single day (Feb. 15).
Camp Closes
Only a few hundred are left
at the post today and the camp
is going back into moth balls in
two weeks or a month.
The trickle of Hungarian refu-
gees coming to these shores will
be processed at the Austrian point
of departure and on arrival in the
United States housed at the St.
George Hotel in Brooklyn, New
York, beginning today. Refugees
still here by the time the camp is
boarded up will be transferred to
the hotel.
Refugees Talk
Each refugee who came here
has survived enough real life dra-
ma to rate a play. But most pre-
ferred not to talk about the past
-either to protect someone left
behind or to keep old wounds from
But others wanted the free
world to know what happened.
They told of a 16-year-old crip-
pled boy whose wheelchair was
pushed for miles by his parents
to the Austrian border . . . of
Russians mowing down women
and children . ..of students fight-
ing tanks with stones.
"We could have beaten them if
properly armed," they said more
in sorrow than in anger.
America Responds
And America's response was
equally dramatic. Before the echo
of Budapest's gunfire died down,
a mighty air armada began ferry'-
ing Hungarian refugees to the
United States in a round-the-
clock shuttle service. The first
planeload arrived on Thanksgiv-
ing eve - less than a month after
the Budapest uprising began.
The White House cut red tape

and upped the Hungarian quota
from 5,000 to 30,000. Army See-
retary Wilbur M. Brucker was on
hand to greet the early arrivals.
Welfare agencies placed some of
the new-comers in homes and Jobs
the day they arrived.
Vice-President Richard M. Nix-
on flew to Austria to inspect refu-
gee camps and at Washington
President Eisenhower personnally
greeted a dozen Hungarians.
Kilmer was a fortunate choice
as a reception center for Hun-
garians, for many of the residents
in nearby New Brunswick are Am-
ericans of Hungarian descent.
They were among the first to
greet the new arrivals-some were
able to do it in Hungarian.
Many happy reunions took place
here among kinfolk who hadn't
seen each other in years.
Open House
To Be Given
By President-
Students may meet and chat
informally with President and Mrs.
Harlan Hatcher at an Open House
to be held from 4 to 6 p.m. today
at the Hatcher home.
Third and last of the semester,
the open house also gives visitors
an opportunity to tour the Hatcher
house, oldest on campus.
Although everyone on campus
is welcome, several residence halls,
fraternities and - sororities have
been extended special invitations.
They include Delta Delta Delta,
Delta Sigma Phi, Delta Kappa Ep-
silon, Sigma Delta Tau, Sigma Nu,
Adelia Cheever, Hayden House, E.
Q., Helen Newberry, Mosher Hall,
Winchell House, W.Q., and Wil-
liams League House.
Traditionally, housemothers
from the specially invited resi-
dences serve refreshments for the
open house.
Pouring today will be Mrs. Ruth
J. Hawthorne, Mrs. Ruth L. Mer-
rill, Mrs. Evelyn Tice, Mrs. Edna
Williams, Mrs. Dorothy Frost, Mrs.
