Colorado: Clause Dead I'm 01311 on ono o ii i i r i P01SDDUD0 Set 1962 By BOB COOK Copy Editor Discriminatory restrictions in social fraternities and sororities at the University of Colorado must be abolished by Sept. 1, 1962, or be placed on probation including a denial of rushing or initiating new ' members. The policy was adopted in Boul der by the school's Board of Re gents Monday after a day long hearing, despite contentions that it could possibly lead to a with drawal of all national organiza tions from the Colorado campus. Represenatatives of national fra ternities previously met in Chicago last week and voiced their concern over the precedent involved. It was felt the 1962 date was adopted over an earlier proposal of 1960 because of the national situation, especially the tenseness in the couth. There are 24 fraternities and 16 sororities on the Colorado campus, all with national affiliations. Of the 9000 students at the university about 2000 are members of social fraternities or sororities. .University spokesmen said that only seven of the fraternities and none of the sororities actually have restrictive clauses contained m their constitutions. The resolution was restricted so it will not pertain to groups "organized in good faith for devo tional purposes or for the study or propagation of a religious faith." The hearing attracted an audi ence of 1800 students and alumni. A faculty senate committee on student affairs had met earlier and adopted a report proposing: 1. A Sept. 1, 1960 deadline for the removal of discriminatory restric tions in student organizations. (Re ligious groups are excepted.) After that date groups with clauses will lose pledging and initiating rights. 2. A three-man committee, ap pointed by the President and select ed by the regents, should hold hear ines and make surveys and studies on the problem. Once a year it will report its findings and recom mendations to the President and regents. 3. By April 30 of each year, start ing in 1956, each student group must certify whether or not it has membership limitations based on race, color, or creed. (Religious groups are excluded.) 4. Organizations will be put on probation if they certify that they have these membership restric tions. 5. Anv croup certifying falsely will lose pledging rights for one academic year and thereafter until the proper certification is made. 6. The certification of each group will be made public after July 1, 1956. 7. No new organization shall be approved unless it can certify it does not limit membership by the bases of race, creed, or color.

Where Your Money Goes: Contributions To WUS Help University Students Abroad (Editor's note: This is the first of a series of three articles of where student funds donated to AUF were channeled as a result of last fall's drive.) The basic needs of university stu dents throughout Asia, Africa, the Middle East and parts of Europe are provided by the program of World University Service, one of five charities to which AUF is this year contributing. WUS is organized for the pur pose of soliciting in American col leges for funds to aid universities abroad. This international organi zation gives aid to university groups in war-devastated nations without discrimination as to race, politics or religion. The organization is entirely stu dent supported and depends on 600 American and foreign univer sities and colleges for aid. This year, 25 per cent of the funds collected in the AUF drive were contributed to WUS. Of last year's AUF 'solicitations, 20 per cent of was donated to WUS; but due to the importance of the service and the interest of students in the project, the amount to be donated was increased. "Through contributing to WUS, the University becomes part of the agency that is seeking to bring together all members of the world university community, AUF presi dent, Jeanne Elliott, said. AUF nations to WUS will be processed through their nation and International headquarters and then will be given to the students directly in terms of food, cloth ing, shelter, medical care and as sistance, educational supplies and other basic requirements of high er education.

Coorty Sunday Journal and Stat Smith Miss Mangold By LUCIGRACE SWITZER, j Copy Editor A compromise solution to the problem of authority for Ivy Day was reached Monday night by Mor tar Board and Innocents. The decision rvas made following a petition by the Mortar Boards for complete authority over Ivy Day. This petition, submitted to the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs, has been withdrawn. The new plan, which must be sub mitted to the Mortar Boards for approval and to the faculty com mittee, provides for a joint con trol of Ivy Day by a policy mak ing committee composed by both Mortar Board and Innocent mem bers. The committee would consist of three Mortar Boards elected from each year's society 'and three Innocents from each year's group. In addition, the chairman would be selected alternately from Mor tar Board and Innocents; Mortar Board in even years, Innocents in odd years. If the plan is approved it would go into effect immediately. According to the compromise plan tihe chairman would be made responsible for: calling the group in January of each year, discussing Ivy Day policy, supervising all Ivy Day activities and voting in case of a tie between the members of the committee. Mortar Board in general will be in charge of: masking, queen, court including attendants, chains and children, flowers, own publici ty of members and selection of soloists. Innocents will be in charge of: tackling, general publicity, band and grounds. There will be joint committees on: the sing, rehearsal and social events, scripts nd trophies.- Innocents and Mortar Board will split the expenses half and half if the University does not finance the events. The entire committee will decide on the Ivy Day schedule and select the master of ceremonies. The policy making committee will hear complaints and make recommen dations each year as to the events of Ivy Day. Mortar Board will keep a complete file of the rec ords, with the Innocents receiving copies of the 1955 and 1956 reports for their files. The preliminary proposal was drawn up by Andy Hove, Innocents vice-president, Dr. H L. Weaver, Innocents advisor, Sharon Man-' gold, Mdrtar Board secretary, and Mary Jean Mulvaney, Mortar Board advisor. In submitting the original Mor tar Board petition, Gail Katskee, The WUS program to meet crit ical needs for textbooks and study materials includes support for stu d e n t mimeograph projects in Greece, Indonesia nd Pakistan.

Courtesy Ron day Journal and Stat Gourlay Misg Katskee Mortar Board president, said, "At the present time there is no place where authority resides, although the responsibility is that of Mor tar Board. Mortar Board super vises organization, financing and program of Ivy Day." This petition, drawn up by Mis Katskee and Miss Mangold, out lined a three point plan calling for more representation on a planning committee, enlargement of the committee with the purpose of making Ivy Day an all-University function and assigning organiza tions certain duties which coincide with their purposes and functions Commenting on the new com promise plan, Miss Mangold said, "Through this compromise, we feel that the original question of both financial responsibility and organizational authority has been answered." "We hope that this compromise will help to strengthen Ivy Day and to clarify the situation for future years," Miss Katskee said. John Gourlay, president of Inno cents, pointed out that the plan still has to be approved by Mor tar Board, but added, "I fail to see any obstacles to this being passed by Mortar Board, it seems a very equitable arrangement which should satisfy both groups." (Continued on page 4) Ivy Day: KIC Tells rarerniry Sing Rules The rules for this year's Ivy Day Sing, May 5, have been announced by John Fagan, interfraternity sing chairman of Kosmet Klub.
