Philip Colbert, Dean of Student
Affairs said Thursday.
Of these 29, the University has
given one a conduct warning, 27
have been put on conduct proba
tion and one has been dismissed,
Colbert said. The dismissed stu
dent was already on conduct pro
bation for a previous offense.

ants. Music for the dance in the Col
lege Activities Building on the Ag
Campus will be furnished by Bill
Albers and his orchestra. Dress
will be cotton and denim. The price
is $1.50 per couple.
Jean Leon Destine and his
Haitian dance group, will star in
person in "Fiesta in Haiti" to be
presented in the Union Ballroom at
8 p.m. on Oct. 30.
Tickets go on sale at the Un
ion on Oct. 25. Price for students,
with ID cards, is 75 cents. Adult
tickets are $1.
Dances of Haiti are unlike that
of any other country, for they
combine the primitive rituals of
Africa with the refined social
dances of 18th century French
court life. "Fiesta in Haiti" illus
trates this mixture.
"Witch Doctor," a voodoo cere
mony in which evil spirits are ex
ercised from the body of the pa
tient, and "La Martinique," a
dance which reflects the French
influence, are two of the dances
on the scheduled program.
A historical ceremony entitled,
"Revolt of the Slaves," in which
the slaves swear to fight to the
death for their country's freedom,
is another dance sequence.

three were students at the Uni
versity. Their discipline has been
handled in the same mannei as
the other 26 violators.
While on conduct probation, Col
bert said, a student cannot be an
officer in any University spon
sored organizations such as Kos
met Klub or AUF. He also can
not represent the University of
ficially in a capacity such as a
member of an intercollegiate ath
letic team, a stock-judging team,
the University Players, or travel
with the band, he said.
However, this would not affect
the student's position as an officer
in a fraternity, sorority, organ
ized co-op or other organizations
not sponsored by the University.
Colbert said that if persons over
21 years of age were picked up
for drinking on property privately
owned by an organized house, he
could not be arrested by civil
authorities sinco he would not be
violating state laws prohibiting
possession of liquor by minors or
drinking on state property.
He would, however, be violating
a rule set up by the Board of
Regents. Fraternities, sororities
and other organizations exist at
the University only under the jur
isdiction of the Regents. The stu
dent could then be disciplined by
the Regents, Colbert said.
