Jim Binder, LIFE editor, waits his turn. ■EDITORIAL Campus Support Is Sought as Statewide Drive Begins V Most of us are familiar with the campaigns for blood donations during World War II. Many of us gave for these drives. By so doing research was speeded up upon what has been hailed as initiating a new era in medical science —"blood plasma. Tales came back from the fighting front of the miracles wrought by this precious'substance. When the war was over plasma went on doing a livesaving job in civilian life. Today we are again *at war. Blood plasma is needed in large quantities, both for the military and the civilian population. A campaign is underway in Michigan to fill depleted supplies and to make available plasma for military use. Central has joined this drive, and has pledged 1000 pints. One out of every three of the campus's students and faculty must donate blood if this drive is to be a success. If the goal is reached 2000 lives will be saved. Seldom has this college been asked to share an such an ambitious imdertaking. If we are to succeed, success must come as the result of a spontaneous effort on the part of the students and faculty. It cannot come from the endeavors of one organization or three oiganizations*. Starting tomorrow morning a table will be set up in the first floor foyer of Warriner Hall, where Centralites may signify a desire.to donate. Forms will be available for students under 21 years of age who must secure a parent's consent in writing. If 150 students sign up during the first two days the State Unit will be on campus December 19, so that extra blood may be available for the holiday emergencies. The drive will continue through vacation and through next month. The State Unit will again be on campus in January to receive donations. Throughout the duration of the drive, LIFE will 'publish a graph of the campaign's progress. Recognition of organizations which sponsor donors will also be given. Central has supported many worthy causes in the past. Your help is needed .again, Only by a combined effort of donations to the plasma procurement program can supplies, so vitally needed at this time, be assured. J. B. IK Decision Reversed by Student Court The Student Court and the dean of -students, meeting in joint session, reversed a disciplinary action handed to Phi Sigma Epsilon, national educational social fraternity, by the Interfraternity Council. Ii was ihe opinion of ihe Court and the dean of students ihai ihe' Interfraternity Council did not take sufficiently aggressive action in being sure ihai each of its member fraternities was thoroughly informed ai ihe beginning of ihe autumn semester regarding rushing rules. The opinion states that the Council heard the case of Phi Sigma Epsilon, concerning violation of rushing regulations, but at a later meeting reversed it* self, referred to another rule, and undertook under that rule to discipline the fraternity, though it had cleared it at a previous meeting. * * * DISCIPLINARY ACTION, it was said/was taken by the Council before it had familiarized itself with the Social Code and had recognized the fact that discipline could not be administered. It Was believed by the Court and. the dean of students that the Interfraternity Council, could improve its relations with respect to its member fraternities by finding a way to be sure that the new officers of each fraternity thoroughly understand rushing rules before the rushing season begins. It was recommended that Interfraternity Council become affiliated With the National In terfraternity Council in order to derive from it. the benefits of long experience with many fraternities throughout the nation in conducting interfraternity affairs. In the case of Phi Sigma Epsilon ihe Court and ihe dean of students concurred ihai ihe fraternity shall refrain from all participation as an organization in intramural sporis during ihe spring semester, 1951. The fraternity shall not hold any social functions during ihe spring semester except ihe two rushing parlies and ihe initiation dinner. The fraternity will take action immediately to set up a filing system by which the regulations regarding interfraternity conduct shall be available to the new officers.
