Tribunal: Council Accepts Report 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 action. 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. SC: 9 Backed By Council 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. 3. If the formula approach is fair, it should be based on an ex nected 12 Der cent increase in en rollment rather than . per cem. 4.

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. A motion to table the Rush rulei failed. Bill Tomsen, social chairman of the Interfraternity Council, dis tributed 1200 IFC Ball tickets to the assembled fraternity presi dents and announced sales would begin Friday. All IFC Ball tickets must b turned in to the IFC office in th Union by May 16, according to Xomsen.
