Innocents Reject Proposal From Phi Mu Aphcr Snfona
Kosmet Klub will again handle
the Inter-fraternity Ivy Day Sing
this year, Marv Stromer, president
f Innocents Society, said Tuesday.
The decision was readied in an
Innocents meeting Monday. Kos
met Klub's jurisdiction over the
Sing is subject to approval by the
Innocents, who were granted au
thority over the Sing by the Stu
dent Council.
"We didn't feel that Kosmet Klub
had done such a bad job in pre
vious years," Junior Knobel, vice
president of Innocents, said.
Proposal Rejected
A proposal for joint sponsorship
Kosmet Klub and Phi Mu Alpha
Sinfonia, men's professional music
fraternity, was rejected. The In
nocents felt that such an arrange
ment would not be feasible.
The groundwork done by Kosmet
Klub merits the organization get
ting the responsibility, Knobel said.
The Innocents recommended that
the Sing be an all-University event
next year, Knobel said. Any deci
sion regarding the handling of the
Ivy Day Sing next year will be
made by next year's Innocents,
Stromer said. "Kosmet Klub will
make this year's sing as good as
it can be," Art Raun, vice-president
of Kosmet Klub, said. Kosmet
Klub president Al Anderson was un
available for comment.

Dulles Reports
Staff Writer
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles reportedly outlined a firm
no appeasement" policy toward Communist China in a report before
a closed session of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Dulles is said to be of the opinion that Red China Is not bluffing
in its threats to take Formosa. However, he didn't say whether he
expected them to attempt to take the island by force or subversion.
Dulles also was understood to have outlined repraisals, possibly with
atomic weapons, against Red China from Korea, Formosa and South
east Asia in case the Communists should attempt to take Formosa by
Crash Feared
The United States may be in the earjy stages of a boom-bust
cycle similar to that in 1929 according to Harvard Economist John
K. Galbraith.
Galbraith told the Senate Banking Committee there are "formid
able safeguards" against another such crash. But he said there are
"resemblances" between present conditions and those leading to the
1929 crash.
Galbraith urged that the government be ready to halt credit buying
f stocks and apply other brakes if stock prices continue to rise.
Parity Bill Advances
Legislation to require price support of major crops at 90 per cent
ef parity, and thus ditch the Eisenhower administration's flexible price
support program, was approved Tuesday by the House Agriculture
Committee. Chairman Cooley said the vote was 23-11 and that it
"crossed party lines." He predicted the bill would pass the House,
but declined to comment on its chances in the Senate.
Chiang Withdrawal Asked
. British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden Tuesday called on Chiang
Kai-Shek to withdraw his forces from the coastal islands off China.
Reporting to the House of Commons, on his Bangkok meeting with
Secretary of State Dulles, Eden said "the necessary conditions for
progress do not yet exist" for peace in Asia. Eden also praised both
the United States and the Chinese Communists for relaxing tensions
over Formosa.
Flood Affects 2200
Over 2,200 families have been affected by flooding along the Ohio
River, according to Red Cross estimates. The crest, highest in seven
years, is expected to reach nine feet above flood stage. West Virginia,
Kentu'cky Ohio and Indiana have been hit by the flood.

Queried concerning Communist rebels in the interior of Burma,
Nu said, "In our country, the Communists have, now become a joke

University Citizen's Responsibility
Physicist Compton Mvocates Balance
01 Activities, Studies for Students
A student who is doing his part
in University activities is accept
ing the-responsibility of citizen of
the university community, Dr. Ar
thur H. Compton, Montgomery
lecturer, said in a Nebraskan inter
view Tuesday.
The question of balance between
campus activities and academic
work must be considered, of
course, he said.
Dr. Compton named organiza
tions such as Red Cross and the
blood banks as examples of worth
while organizations in the civic
community where the citizen must
co-operate to further a free society.
The same philosophy can be ap
plied to campus service organiza
tions, which are working for a bet
ter university, Dr. Compton said.
Academic work remains the
prime function of the student but
will be green and white In accord
ance with St. Patrick's Day.
Saturday night the "Madhatters"
theme will be featured. Decora
tions will be worked around the
character Madhatter of Alice in
Wonderland, and Jimmy Phillip's
band will play during the evening.
During intermission, three Coed
Follies acts will be presented. Free
refreshments will be served dur
ing the evening in Parlors A, B
and C.
The dances are sponsored by the
Union Dance Committee.

name of the song chosen by the fra

Fraternities must also state Wheth
er their selection is original or not,
Raun said. "
Mortar Board will handle the de
tails of the women's sing in the
same capacity as Innocents.
Fall Petition
A petition circulated last fall con
cerning the definite rules and re
strictions set down by Kosmet
it is advisable to establish a work-,
ing balance between studies and
activities, he added.
Preparation For Life Task
In college, the student is prepar
ing for his life task which is more
important than relatively minor
student activities, Dr. Compton
The student who serious studies
and enters upon task which is im
pertant to the community is doing
his part, evert if it is in an imper
sonal way, he continued.
"I do not wish to make activi
ties seem unimportant, because
they constitute one of the really
essential parts of education, which
are working together," he said.
It is imperative that students do
what they can to understand what
is now being done with other na
tions and within the United States,
Dr. Compton said.
The real hazards of society, such
as destructive wars and society
breakdowns, will come to the seri
ous active stage when the genera
tion now in college is at the helm,
he said.
Dr. Compton stated that he was
convinced that Communist inter
ests bear real ill-will against the
free world.
"Hate-Communists" Philosophy
The nation is at present being
subjected to a "Hate Communists"
philosophy that is often dragged
into issues where it is irrelevant
and damaging, he said.
"It is, however, an effective
propaganda device for gathering
support for the government," Dr.
Compton said.
Of all parts of the world, the peo
ple of the American Middle West
are more at home with science
and technology than any other area
in the world, he said.
Recently, Dr. Compton was
asked to speak at the laying of a
cornerstone for a new fraternity
house at Washington University.
Fraternities Have A Place
He said fraternities, and other
similar student groups, have a
place on the campus as long as

Preliminary approval was given
by the Legislature Tuesday to a
bill which would allow the Uni

Legislative Bill 138 removes the
provision in present state law un

must set up a "dummy" corpora

dormitories for single students.
John K. Selleck, Comptroller , of
the University, said Monday that

student housing legally, if we think
it can pay out."

"This question is one faced not
only by the University, but also
by the society in general," Dr
Hitchcock said. "In all probabil

"Although the definition of edu

touched on "
