Students Seek Release
Of Hungarin Writer
A group of University students led by John Dwyer, '59, and Torre
Bissell, '60, have prepared petitions seeking the freedom of Novelist
Tibor Dery, 63, who is imprisoned in Communist Hungary.
Students will have tables available on the Diagonal today and
tomorrow in an effort to obtain signatures of 'U' students, personnel
and any other interested persons.
According to both Dwyer and Bissell, plans call for the sehding
of petitions to the Manchester Guardian, an English newspaper,
and the sending of a )petition to

"The validity of this policy of

Disciplinary .Action Passedi
By Joint Judiciary Council,
Joint Judiciary Council, in meetings held on Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 10
and 17, administered disciplinary action for infractions of University
regulations in cases involving 32 students and two fraternities.'
Names of the violaters were not disclosed by the Council. "It is
the policy of the Council that the publication of the names of indi-'
viduals involved in violations of University regulations serves no
useful purpose in attempting to clarify the Council's action in the
" enforcement and interpretation,
of these regulations," Bob Stahl,
'58, chairman of the council;said.
" " '' Eight cases heard by the Coun-'

to the purchase, sale and use of

MORE VACANCIES THIS YEAR:
Crowding t Men's Residence Halls
Of the remaining students, 14 were
pledged later. The others will be-
come eligible in January.
"The problem here lies in terms'
of housing," Cross said. "There
isn't a house on this campus that
isn't virtually filled to capacity."
Our fraternity system could not
accomodate the 600 rushees who
failed to pledge, he continued.
"I believe that any person, who
really wants to join a fraternity
should be given every opportunity
to become a member of one. This
does not mean an individual
should be entitled to join the
fraternity of his choice even
though the fraternity he wishes to
pledge does not want him in their
brotherhood," Cross said.
The concept of fraternity living
is based on membership selection,
he noted. "The-Williams fraternity
pledging policy violates this con-
cept," Cross said.,
Rob Trost, '58, Inter-Fraternity
Council president, agreed with
Cross on the principle of member-
ship selection. "The fraternity
assigned a certain pledge may not
like the individual and also, the
individual not care for the house
he -has been assigned."
