Two students were expelled from
the University by action of the
Student Discipline committee
The action, most severe in the
University’s disciplinary code, was
taken by unanimous vote and was
the result of a charge of breaking
and entering a University building.
Both students had confessed to
the charges of breaking into the
Business office in Emerald hall and
altering and removing grade cards
and other official records. An ex
pulsive action bars these students
from attending the University or

I’olice had been investigating
the robbery of Kappa Sigma,
Sigma Xu, Phi Kappa Psi and

solved Thursday with the re
turn of the stolen money. The
money will be re-distributed
through the house presidents to
the individual members who had
The note enclosed with the
money was printed on a piece of
torn note paper and read:
“Dear Mr. Hawk:
“I am returning the money
because I couldn’t live with my
self. It would be alright if I
didn’t have to look at myself
when I shave in the morning.
I need this money worse than
anyone for reasons of my own,
hut this is no way to get it.
I have learned a good lesson
and I certainly hope that every
one gets their money hack.
1 may he a coward for not
signing my name but I have
paid for this mistake a thousand
times since Monday night.”
“This event can’t help but
give all of us u boost in our
faith in human nature,” Hawk
declared. “Personally, I was
flabbergasted. Don DuShane,
(director of student affairs)
was so surprised on seeing the
money that he answered the
phone twice, said he would call
back and never checked to sec
who called," Hawk said.

the next decade . . . are of crucial"
importance to us," he stated, ack
nowledging at the same time that
"most of us are on the Arab side.”
Wright cited several examples
of the delicate balance between
France and her colonies and said
that a pro-Arab policy on our part
would probably mean destruction
of Paris's present steps to improve
the North African situation and"
result in a uncompromising, colo
