ate plunged into debate yesterday
on the biggest remaining issue in
the civil rights bill - whether to
guarantee jury trials in certain
contempt cases involving alleged
violations of voting rights.
Sen. Joseph O'Mahoney (D-
Wyo) and Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-
Tenn) both argued for an amend-
ment to provide such trials, for
eprsons charged with criminal
contempt of court for violating
voting rights injunctions.
A jury trial amendment also
was supported by Senate Majority
Leader, Sen. Lyndon Johnson (D-
Tex), who said that while courts
must have power to enforce their
orders people accused of crimes
"should have the opportunity to
make their case before a jury of
their peers."
But Minority Leader Sen. Wil-
liam Knowland (R-Calif.) con-
tended a jury trial amendment
would "greatly weaken the effec-
tiveness" of the bill.




Freshmen Get Briefed
Before Rush This Fall
Freshman orientation is being held this summer as an experiment.
Prospective fall freshmen are given a two and a half day intro-
duction to the University at their convenience sometime between July
7 and Aug. 16, however it is not compulsory that this summer orienta-
tion be taken as in the case of out-of-staters. For them, there is the
usual fall orientation week program.
Director of Orientation Robert L. Garfield said some 1,000 fresh-
men are taking advantage of the preliminary orientation with 10 to
25 per cent of them from out of state, some from as far as Miami
QBeach, and New Mexico. Sixty two

evening performances is free.
The afternoon program will in-

concertos. In the evening, the
fourth, sixth, and second concertos
will be played.

Christian Ludwig, margrave of
Brandenburg. The concertos are

within 100 miles.
In future years, two thirds of
the, incoming class is expected to
take summer orientation.
The whole orientation system
has been revamped.
The summer orientation is
mainly academic, ending with
registration and classification for
next fall. Then these summer ori-
ented students will not have to be
back until the third day of the fall
orientation program, when they
will join the rest of the freshmen
for a completely new social orien-
tation program.
To get an idea of what the sum-
mer program is like, we'll follow
a typical freshman as he goes
through the summer program.
Bob Goyer, from Bel Air, Michi-
gan, is one of the four groups of
30 students which weekly descend
