Debated By Coeds
A delegation of AWS authority

Housemothers and house officers
met with the AWS Board Tuesday
afternoon to discuss the proposal,
which would allow a house repre
sentative to campus girls breaking
rules, according to rules set down
in an AWS rule book and a stand
ard guide. More serious or unusual
offenses would be handled by the
AWS court.
House representatives would meet
with housemothers to determine
whether a girl should be campused,
excused or sent to court. The rep
resentative would have the authori
ty to accept legitimate excuse.
"The proposal involves an ad
ministrative change, tind would not
put house representatives in a hard
position" in my opinion, Paula
Broady Wells, AWS president,
said in Tuesday's discussion.
The ultimate decision rests with
AWS Board members, but houses
are being consulted to allow the
board to vote fairly, she said.
AWS sign-out committee will still
check sign-out sheets, Kay Nosky,
AWS vice-president, said. A bouse
that continually turned in sign-out
sheets without evidence of infringe
ment of rules would be subject to
some suspicion, she said.
Penalties would not be arbitrarily
handed out to offenders, she said.
AWS desires a more personal con
tact with the students, which is not
possible due to time shortage un
der the present arrangement, Miss
JJosky stated.
Questions were raised by house
officers concerning resentment to
ward the representative who would
have the authority. Representatives
would hand out only mechanical
penalties, she answered.
All bouses expressed willingness
to cooperate with the system, should
it be passed. Some houses did
voice objections to the proposal on
the ground that the present AWS
system is effective and respected
by women students.
"The board feels that the indi
vidual woman would feel she knew
eiid understood more of various
aspects of AWS rules," Miss JJosky
la the past, an AWS ruling has
been accepted without question, she
said. The board feels that more
student comment wuld be an ad

Thirteen staff members who
have served 25 years at the Uni

Tuesday evening at the Union.
New staff members will be in
troduced by the deans and direc

was the principal speaker.
Those receiving certificates were:

assistant professor of home eco

Now is the time for higher edu
cation to plan for growth and ad
justments which are inevitable in
the years immediately ahead,
Hardm said in his address.
Hardin cited these four trends
which he said bear upon Ameri
can educational efforts, methods,
and objectives.
Those include population growth
pattern; rapid adjustments in liv
ing habits resulting from the in
creased mobility of the United
States population and such devel
opments as suburban communities.
Also, growing American interest
in international affairs and the
general realization that trensions
cannot be suddenly relaxed or ex
plosive problems speedily re
solved and the soaring demand for
higher education affect education,
he said.
'The impending flood-tide of en
rollment." Hardin said, "poses a
question of particular importance
to the public university. By herit
age and by law we are committed
to the encouragement of bro&d and
equal educational opportunity.'
Higher education has yielded to
demands for specialized training
d-sring the past half-century. Chan
cellor Hardin said.
"The issue is not whether pro
fessional training on one hand and
liberal education on the other are

Ellen Smith Hall, long a cam

the construction of an adminis
trative wing to the Teachers
College Building, University of
ficials have announced. Since
1919, the building has housed of
fices of the YWCA and the Dean
of Women.
Ellen Smith Hall was built in
1888 as a private home, costing
$40,000. In 1915 it was rented to
Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity. Dur
ing World War 1, the YWCA
moved in a canteen for servicemen.
Outside World:
Nixon, Cabinet Licet
Staff Writer
Vice-President Richard Nixon, keeping the wheels of government
turning during President Eisenhower's absence, announced that the
National Security Council and the Cabinet will meet to consider matter
which he termed "of a routine nature."
An increasingly important question raised as a result of Ike's
absence concerned how much presidential authority can be delegated
to Nixon and his aides. Nixon announced that Attorney General Herbert
Brownell, Jr., would attend the Security Council meeting to give an
interpretation of the delegation of authority,
Brownell, however, said that in view of Ike's "encouraging" prog
ress, g may not be necessary for a meeting to discuss the delegation of
authority. "There are legal ways and meant to assure the orderly
functioning of the government under the Eisenhower policies," he de
clared. Dr. Paul Dudley White, "the heart specialist attending Ike, said that
Eisenhower "will be much better off to take up some of his duties
than to worry over neglecting them while he recovers."
Egypt Accepts Russian Arms
Egypt informed Britain that she has accepted an offer by Russia
to supply her with arms and military equipment, in spite of a plea
by the U.S. and Great Britain in New York that there should not be
any race to supply arms to the Middle East.
The United States, Britain and France have tried to maintain a
military balance of power aod to prevent an arms race between the
Arab countries of the Middle East and Israel, under a declaration
signed among the Big Three in 1950.
Although a state of armistice "exists in the Middle East, the Arab
countries including Egypt are still technically at war with the State
of Israel. (
Ladejinsky Tangle Called Error
Denying security clearance to Wolf Ladejinsky, a Russian-born spe
cialist on land reform, wss termed a mistake by Secretary of Agricul
ture Benson.
In spite of the fact that Ladejinsky had bei cleared by the State
Department and had worked In the Tokyo Embassy, he was refused
security clearance by the Agriculture Department Unt January.
Ever since that incident Benson said that his department's aecurUy
program has been overhauled. He acMed that newspaper criticism of
his decision in the Ladejinsky esse "caused me more concern than
ever" about t'.-c Agriculture Department's security program.
