New Judicial Board Reconsideration Causes Latest Delay in ATO Retrial The present delay in the retrial of Alpha Tau Omega is caused by the Judicial Boards' reconsidering the position of the IFC penal code's contested "section F" in this particular trial This reconsideration is a result of a mistake made two years ago when the present penal code was adopted, published and distributed. Through a typing error, section F (under which the ATO's were originally tried) was placed in part two instead of part one. This changed the maximum penalty under this section from loss of the entire pledge class to a maximum $100 fine. This mistake, however, was not discovered until two weeks ago, when the section was used for the first time. Section F is a "general catch-all" for offenses which the IFC feels are major Vronsky-Babin at 8:15 Duo-Pianists To Play Tonight in Page VRONSKY AND BABIN By ANN VERNER Returning from summer engagements in Chicago and New York, duo-pianists Vitya Vronsky and Victor Babin. will perform this evening at 8:15 p.m. in Page auditorium. Miss Vronsky was born in the Crimea, and her husband, Babin, was born in Moscow. After separately pursuing concert activity for many years, in 1937 the Babins merged their careers and came to the United States where they became citizens. During the 1960-61 season the Babins are performing in Detroit, Boston, New Orleans, Los Angeles and New York in preparation for a European tour in the spring. Their concert tonight includes selections composed by Babin himself as well as music from Mozart, Schubert, Brahms and Lutoslawski. To begin their program the artists will play Mozart's "Sonata in D Major, K. 448," a selection encompassing integrated moods of force, grace and humor. The two adaptations of Babin's are Tschai- kovasky's waltzes, "Swan Lake," "Eugene Onegin" "Waltz of the Flowers" and "Piper of Polmood," a fantasy on old Scottish themes. The concert is the second in the Student Union All-Star Artist Series. Tickets for the concert are on sale in room 202-A Flowers Building. offenses but are not dealt with specifically in the penal code. The Judicial Board will meet tomorrow night to "reconsider the question of whether the ATO's should be retried under the distributed copy of the penal code (with which they had been familiar for two years) or under the revised code (which the IFC originally passed two years ago)," chairman Steve Hunt said yesterday. Regardless of the decision the Judicial Board makes concerning the situation, ATO will be given a completely new trial with new evidence and new witnesses, Hunt stated. He also indicated that the charges against (Continued on page 4) Bowl Game Moves 3500 To Protest The Undergraduate Faculty Council will receive petitions bearing more than 3500 signatures Thursday when it considers a request for either free cuts or waiving of the quality point loss for cuts on the day after the Cotton Bowl game. Student government association presidents Liz Giavani and Frank Ballance will give the petitions to Provost R. Taylor Cole for transmittal to the UFC, which meets in closed session at 4 p.m. in 208 Flowers Building. Hobbs To Preside Dean of the University Marcus Hobbs has altered earlier plans and will preside at the meeting. Hobbs said he would inform the student leaders of the UFC's decisions immediately after the meeting adjourns. UFC, explained Hobbs, cannot change the official University calendar—set up in 1958—but 4 it is empowered to grant free cuts or waive the q-p penalty, which provides for loss of two quality points for each class cut before or after holidays. Student representatives will not be allowed to attend the meeting, but Hobbs has guaranteed full airing of arguments. The petitions note that classes resume the morning after the bowl game in Dallas, Texas— 1600 miles away—and few students are able to attend the game. And most students will be en route back to school at the same time that the game is broadcast on national television. Ask Free Cuts The official MSGA petition— circulated last night to freshman house and fraternity presidents and Independent Dormitory Council representatives—is the only petition that will be presented from West Campus. More than 85 per cent of East Campus women have already signed a petition circulated by Robert L. Brown. Both petitions ask for either free cuts —a "day"—or the q-p rule. Dress Rehearsal Duke Players cast for The Crucible polishes lines and gestures at last night's dress rehearsal. The play, by Arthur Miller, opens tomorrow in Branson Hall and runs through Saturday. Bill Veestal as John Proctor and Sally Hobbs as Abigail Williams hold leading roles. Tickets are on sale tomorrow and Thursday at Page and Branson box offices and each evening before the performance.
