Of the 10 "regular" members present at the Tuesday meeting, there were eight votes for the final draft of the recommendation and two votes against. The vote of "ex officio" members ran two to one in favor of the recommendation. The recommended policy, entitled "Conduct Within University Housing," is quite similar to the Craige Graduate Center agreement on open house. The Craige agreement states in part, "The officers and members agree to conform to patterns of ponduct publicly defensible for members of the University Community and residents of University housing, to be responsible for assuring that such conduct prevails and to make their residences and guests comfortable and free from even slight embarrassment. To this end they shall provide for and give public notice of such rules and regulations governing the conduct of residents of the house and their guests as they deem advisable and are approved by the Dean of Men and Dean of Women."

According to the assistant to the Chancellor, Dr. Claiborne Jones, release may be delayed for a week or more.

In recent meetings CURL has heard reports from the visitation subcommittee on the present open house arrangement.

Haynsworth Jr. and for the Abe Fortas court vacancy last November, including Senate GOP leader Hugh Scott and his assistant, Robert P. Griffin of Michigan, went along with Carswell this time. But others who supported Haynsworth refused to accept Carswell. These included Sens. Winston Prouty, Mario W. Cook, and J. William Fulbright, D-Ark. Critics convinced a majority of the Senate that Carswell was unfit to serve on the Supreme Court, aleging he lacked judicial stature, held white supremacy views and had been less than candid in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing. The rejection means that the court will continue to operate with eight justices for the remainder of the current term which is expected to end in June. WASHINGTON (UPDA bitterly divided Senate rejected the Supreme Court nomination of G. Harrold Carswell Wednesday in a second stunning repudiation of President Nixon's efforts to restore "the kind of balance" he says the court needs. By a vote of 51 to 45, the Senate resolved its anguish over party loyalties and doubts about CarsweU's fitness for the high bench. The votes of five moderate Republicans were decisive, but it was not until the roll call had neared its finish and Mrs. Margaret Chase Smith, the Maine Republican, softly uttered her "no" that the outcome was no longer in doubt. Thirteen Republicans deserted Nixon to join 38 Democrats in opposing the nomination. Twenty-eight Republicans and 17 Democrats-all from southern or border states-voted for Carswell. Four senators were absent, two of them ailing and two overseas, but had they voted, they would have canceled each other out. and student aid officials, according to Miss Pat Wood, co-director for Project Uplift.

Students have constantly been subjected to liberal propaganda," he claimed. Adcock also announced the creation of a new chapter of YAF, chartered by the national organization. He said the new organization has been formed because the current YAF club on campus is inactive. Adcock said an organizational meeting of campus Youth Americans for Freedom was held before Easter. Officers of the James K. Polk chapter of YAF are Rick Miller, chairman, and Hal Norman, vice chairman. The organization is still in need of a faculty advisor, according to Adcock.

This quote from Albert Camus best sums up the philosophy of Dr. Jacques Hardre, resigning chairman of the Department of Romance Languages.

Presently he is editor-in-chief of the "French Review," a journal of French articles. A foreign language instructor for many years and a formidable figure in world events, Dr. Hardre has found the foreign language department well suited to himself. culture," he said. Recent reforms of foreign language requirements did nt ruffle the professor but did prompt his calling for language instruction at an earlier zge for pupils. "Although I believe strongly in the need for foreign language instruction, it is impossible to teach it in three or four semesters," he said. "Students should receive their basic teaching in high school, leaving colleges open to pursue foreign literature." "One of the most relevant areas of human understanding today is the need for communication," he said. "It is difficult for me to understand why foreign language is not relevant." Optimistic on the world outlook. Dr. Hardre cites communication as an answer to the problems of nationality conflicts. "Through communication we can gain an understanding of people and thereby an understanding of their University. In 1939, he served as a sergeant in the French Army and in 1942 during the French occupation he was a lieutenant in the Free French Army. Dr. Hardre 's service and later work in U.S. French relations won him the French Legion of Honor, presented to him by Charles De Gaulle. He took the position as head of the Romance Language Department in 1964 and was shortly appointed chairman of the Humanities Division.
