Legislature Gains Prestige

Football Ticket Distribution
Will Begin September 22

(Continued from Page 1)

These projects and accepted
recommendations represent the
successful aspects of SL activities
during the past year, but legisla-
tors have not solved all the prob-
lems that they had hoped to.
For the second time in two
years an SL sponsored anti-dis-
crimination plan was vetoed by
the President. Back in Novem-
ber, 1950, SL passed a motion
asking that recognition be with-
held from any fraternity with
discriminatory clauses in its
constitution which failed to re-
move them by 1956.
It was later modified to give ex-
tensions over the time limit to
fraternities which can prove "sub-
stantial probability that all such
discriminatory clauses will be re-
moved in the near future."
THE AMENDED motion passed
the Student-'Affairs Committee,
the student-faculty body which
administrates all student affairs,
by a seven-to-six vote early in
March, 1951.
It was voted just before the
end of the 1951 spring semester
by retiring University President
Alexander G. Ruthven.
Last fall action was again dis-
cussed by the SL, but it was de-
cided to await developments in
the Interfraternity Council which
had said it would take some stand
on the issue.
In December the IFC passed the
"Acacia Plan" which called for a
gradualist approach with assist-
ance to houses witheclauses if they
asked for help. The assistance was
to take the form of an IFC Coun-
seling and Information Service de-
signed to provide help and infor-
mation for the affected houses.
* s
LATER the Big-Ten IFC-Pan-
hellenic Association adopted this
plan as its basic policy and set up
a Big-Ten Counseling and Infor-
mation Service under the direction
of the Michigan IFC- Panhel or-
SL was not satisfied with this
plan and in February discussed
several proposals. Over strong
opposition from some members,
they decided to wipe out the
time. limit section from their
vetoed plan and recommend
simply that fraternities be made
to petition and actively urge re-
moval of restrictive clauses be-
fore their national conventions.
This motion was passed by the
SAC in March by a close 7-6 vote,
but was vetoed by freshman Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher in May.
SL has indicated that it would
work on the discrimination prob-
lem this fall through its own Hu-

man Relations Committee in co-
operation with the IFC-Panhel
ANOTHER serious reversal that
SL faced this spring was the Uni-
versity administration veto of a
legislature fund request. SL had
asked for $5,000 from student fees
for the coming school year to cov-
er increased costs. The request
was denied because of lack of
available funds.
A serious blow to SL, the fund
veto has put a crimp in its plans
for expanded service to the stu-
dent body.
One of the most controversial
issues on campus this spring arose
over the Lecture Committee cre-
ated by the Board of Regents. The
* * *


rules so that more responsibili-
ty could be placed with the
sponsoring organization.
Under this plan, each approved
campus group would be free to in-
vite any speaker here without
Committee approval, but would be
required to inform the Committee
of the proposed talk and submit
a signed statement that the speak-
er will not advocate violent over-
throw of the government and that
the meeting will be peaceful and
However, if these assurances
are violated, the sponsoring
group would have a Joint Judi-
ciary hearing and the Joint Ju-
diciary Council would recom-
mend disciplinary action to the
University Subcommittee on
The Regents have not yet acted
upon this proposal.
Earlier in the semester, SL was
allowed to appoint two students to
sit informally on the Lecture Com-
mittee. The representatives have
speaking privileges but are not al-,
lowed to vote on Committee deci-
When past SL President Len
Wilcox retired this spring, he
pointed out several serious prob-
lems that face the Legislature in
the coming year. There were three
which he considered of prime im-
1. Relationships with campus
organizations -- SL has been
working to have the many oth-
er campus groups take advan-
tage of their speaking privilege
within SL, but the results have
been unsatisfactory.
2. Problems faced with particu-
lar organizations-SL is distinctly
different in form from such or-
ganizations as the Union or
League, Wilcox has pointed out.
However, he maintains that un-
less SL is given adequate govern-
ing powers, as the Union and
League arehgranted facilities for
operating their business, the Leg-
islature can not be as successful
as it might be.
3. Recognition by the Univer-
sity-Under Wilcox'sleadership,
SL has pressed for more ade-
quate student representation on
various University committees
and has unsuccessfully requested
increased funds. Wilcox also
feels that University officials
"have failed to attempt to un-
derstand the student view and
conditions on the student level."
He believes that "Student gov-
ernment must stand resolutely for
what it believes to be right, wheth-
er or not it will please the Univer-
sity, for we know that the Uni-
versity officials will always stand
for what they believe to be right
whether or not it pleases us."

Student tickets for all Michigan
home football games will be dis-
tributed beginning Monday, Sept.
22, in Barbour Gymnasium, under
the group seating plan instituted
in 1949 by SL and the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
Tickets are handed out on the

For .Rushing
Fraternity-inclined men will
find a full program of meetings,
movies and open houses awaiting
them when they arrive on campus
in September.
The official rushing period, with
its luncheons, smokers and din-
ners, will extend from Sept. 28
through Oct. 12. Rushing coun-
cilors will be on hand to advise
rushees from Sept. 17 until the
end of the rushing period.
Those planning to rush any of
the 44 fraternities however, must
register at the Office of Student
Affairs, 1020 Administration
Building, between Sept. 15 and
Oct. 2, according to C. A. Mitts,
Interfraternity Council co-rush-
ing chairman. Unlike past years,
there will be no rushing fee.
A mass rushing meeting will be
held at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 25 at the
Michigan Union.

the best of the student allotment
of seats, juniors the next best, and
so on down to freshmen.

STUDENTS will pick up their
tickets from Monday through Wed-
nesday with freshmen collecting

and juniors will receive their t ck-

In order to receive tickets
students must present a cash-

who appear on campus and may
deny speaking privileges to a guest
Each student organization
sponsoringa speaker must sub-
mit evidence that during a
meeting or lecture "there shall
be no violation of the recognized
rules of hospitality nor advo-
cacy of the subversion of the
government of the United States
nor of the state, and that such
meetings and lectures shall be
in spirit and expression worthy
of the University."
If the Committee feels that this
criteria will not be met by a pro-i
posed speaker, it may deny use of
University property for his speech.

LAST SPRING several cases
arose where the Committee
banned a series of speakers.
After great debate in which,
some SL members asked for the
abolishment of the Committee
and others did not want to take
any action, it was decided to ask
the Regents to liberalize their

UNION OPERA-Chorus 'girls' dance in last year's Union Opera production, "Never Too Late." Each
year the Opera, in which all parts are taken by men, lightly and laughingly satirizes everything in
Ann Arbor from the campus to the coeds. It is presented first for the campus audience, then on a
vacation tour. Only once during the 40-odd years since its organization have the names of women
been allowed on a Union Opera program-during World War I with the critical manpower shortage.
Judiciary Handles Student Discipline

A unique system by which stu-
dents decide cases of other stu-
-dents who are charged with viola-
tion of University rules is embodied
in the Joint Judiciary Council here
at Michigan.
The Joint Judiciary Council
serves as the student disciplinary
board at the University.
Composed of four members of
the Men's Judiciary Council and
four from Women's Judiciary, plus
a chairman it hears and decides
all cases arising under the regu-
lations of the University which
are referred to it by the Offices
of the Dean of Students and the
Dean of Women.

which metes out final punishment.
Appeals on Council recommenda-
tions may be made to the Offices
of the Dean of Students and the
Dean of Women.
Meeting separately, the Men's
and Women's Councils handle
cases which arise in their sep-
arate jurisdictions. Women's
Judie takes care of infractions
of women's hours and other
rules. (For a complete descrip-
tion of the Women's Council
see page 1 of the Women's Sec-
Men's Judic is made up of seven
male students,, who are appointed
for a term of one year by the Stu-
dent Legislature Cabinet.
* * *
LAST SPRING a new constitu-

tion for the Joint Judiciary Coun-
cil was formulated. It provided for
a more representative and central-
ized student judiciary system of
five members. The new constitu-
tion was drawn up after a year of
experimentation under a Joint
Judic system.
