the "Law of the Age of Space"

Local YD's To Give Resolution
On Discrimination At Meeting

The national convention of
Young Democra'ts which opens
today in Reno, Nevada is expected
to hear a resolution from the Uni-

practice of discriminatory policies
in educational institutions.
Representing the local club at
the convention, Ronald Pivnick,

under the heading of civil rights.,
The resolution says in part that:
L No institution, educational or
otherwise, receiving any Federal
funds shall be permitted to recog-
nize, encourage, foster, or in any
way support any group or organ-
ization which overtly or covertly
practices racial, religious, or eth-
nic discrimination in the selection
of its membership.
IL No educational institution
receiving any Federal funds shall
be permitted to segregate its stu-
dents according to race, religion
or ethnic origin; nor require pho-
tographs of entering students or
of students making application for
room in institutional residences,
nor, require any information on
any official form intended to dis-
close the student's race, religion
or ethnic origin, nor be allowed to
select roommates for students on
this same basis.

Other resolutions calling for
federal construction of nuclear
power reactors, and a stepped up
slum clearance program will be
introduced 'at the four day con-
vention by Pivnick.
Pivnick, who said last week that
"the University and its fraternity
system are 'prime examples' of
segregation in the North," will
also serve on the resolutions ,,orn-
mittee at the convention.
