Dr. J. Hewitt Judd, former pres

The Student Council accepted
unanimously Wednesday a report
from the Committee on Student
Activities which called for the
placement of the proposed Student
Tribunal on the Spring Ballot.
Students voting in the elections
Monday will designate whether
they are in favor of the proposed
Tribunal or not on a separate
ballot, as a result of Wednesday's
Marvin Breslow, chairman of
the committee on student activi
ties, stated Thursday that the stu
dent body is voting whether to
endorse the proposed Tribunal. If
thev do. Breslow said, it will be a
mandate for the 1957-58 Council
to present such a plan to the
proper University authorities.
According to Brestlow, if the
proposed Tribunal was endorsed
by the Student body minor adjust
ments could be made in the plan
by the 1957-58 Council.
"Initially the Student Tribunal
would be an advisory body for the
Division of Student Affairs," Bres
low stated.
"However, the sound and ma
ture functionings of the Tribunal
will prove the Tribunal to be an
efficient and respected arm ot stu
dent self-disciplwe and student
self-government at the University,"
he added.
9 Backed
Nine candidates for Student
Council have received the endorse
ment of the independents on cam
pus, according to Lyle Hansen
president of the RAM Council.
The candidates were chosen by
interview Wednesday night by a
panel made up of Hansen, Sue
Hinkle, president of BABW, Ruth
Roubel and Glenn Sperry, vice-
president of RAM.
The endorsed candidates include
Ted Lambert, sophomore in Phar
macy; Bob Luidell, sophomore in
Business Administration; Sara
Jones, sophomore in Arts and Sci
ences; Dick Tempero, sophomore
in Teachers College; Dwaine Rog
ce. soohomore in Engineering;
Charlene Anthony, freshman in
Teachers College; Jane Savener,
snnhomore in Ag. Burt Weichen
thal, sophomore in Ag and J i m
Wittier, freshman in Dental School.
Hansen exDlained the system
which the Independents will use
on election day. Each house presi
dent in the Residence Association
for Men and each house represen
tative for BABW will act as pre
cinct chairman. Their job will be
to get out the v o t e in their pre
cinct. Since independent men out
number the Greek by a ratio oi
about 4 to 1, and since the Greek
wnmpn are onlv 4 per cent more
numerous than independent, the
major job of the Independents is
simply to get out the vote, he said.
"Although some of the cnosen
i-snrlirfntes are Greeks, they have
shown particular interest in all-
campus Greek-Indepenaeni ai
fairs", Hansen said. "The inde
pendents are anxious to bring
about better relations in au-vdm-pus
projects, and possibly work
ing through Student Council will
be a step toward our goal."
A minority report by two com
mittee members of the Budget
Committee dissenting strongly
from the majority action released
today indicates that a full-scale
floor fight over the University's
aDDroDriations for the next two
years has been signalled.
In the minortiy statement, un-
additional costs to the percentag
of enrollment increase. Nearly 50
per cent of the University budget
is not directly related to student
teaching, the dissenters said.

Rescinding Action:
'Spiking' Made Illegal By 16-7 IK Vole
The Interfraternity Council voted
16-7 Wednesday to make spiking
illegal thus rescinding their action
of April 10.
Previously the IFC had voted
16-8 to delete from the 1957 Rush
Rules a clause which prohibited
"spiking" or the illegal accept
ance of a pledge pin
Voting came after almost one
which celebrates the Union's 19th hour of debate on a motion by
Ken Vosika, president of Sigma
Chi, to make spiking illegal.
Most fraternity presidents in fa
vor of Vosika's motion stated that
the April 10 action had been made
too hastily and should be revoked.
Earlier in the meeting, Bill
Ross, president of Phi Delta
Theta, introduced a motion which
was passed 17 to 6 to reconsider
the spiking rule.
