FOUR LEADING EDUCATORS have been selected to in-
vestigate the Central Intelligence Agency's penetration of the
academic community, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.
The four, appointed to a special panel established by
Robert A. Dahl, president of the American Political Science
Association, are R. Taylor, Cole, provost of. ILuke University;
Gabriel Almond, professor at Stanford University; C. Herman
Pritchett, professor at the University of California in Santa
Barbara; and David B. Truman, dean of Columbia College, Co-
lumbia University.
In letters to the four scholars, Dahl said that, "The CIA has
penetrated academic and cultural circles through foundations
and pseudo-foundations to which they channeled funds. There
are bound to be evil effects from such practices," the Associated
Press reports.
Even if no improper CIA influence is proved, he said, the
standing of U.S. scholars, their relations with foreign colleagues,
and their chances for research, "will suffer grievously."

IConcern of
Hatcher Critical of
Ribicoff's Charges;
Hits Graduate Policies
Public expectations that the uni-
versities can act as all-purpose
problem solvers may be unrealistic,
University President H a r 1 a n
Hatcher warned yesterday at the
Founders Day convocation of Un-
ion College, Schenectady, N.Y.
President Hatcher commented
specifically on charges by Sen.
Abraham Ribicoff (D-Conn) in
Ann Arbor that American univer-
sities have been "nidifferent to the
problems of the urban ghetto."
"He ignored the fact that the
United States Congress governs
Washington, D.C.," President
Hatcher observed, "and that it
1has money unlimited, sole respon-
sibility, and power unrestrained to
make the capital the model city
of the age."
Don't Have Tools
"No university in thew orld has
any of the resources or the op-
portunity and tools or, I would
add, the direct responsibility for
providing job opportunities for all.
"Urban renewal, neighborhood
development and reorganization of
the executive branch of the fed-
eral government all fall outside
university scope. This does not
mean that the university does not
share in such ideals nor that it
has no role to play in achieving
However, a university, according
to President Hatcher, "is not an
agency like the Department of Ag-
riculture or social security. Its
job through individual faculty
members is to identify, toan-
alyze, to research and experiment,1
and to train those who in turn per-
form service and give intelligent_
direction" to the forces of social
Criticizes Grad Education
President Hatcher was also cri-
tical of the "rigid mold and the
"status values" of graduate edu-
Graduate education, as found in
most American universities, oper-
ates by a system, he said, that
"was not rationally planned. It has'
simply grown up. It is partly an
extension of work begun in the
undergraduate years in exactly the
same way much of the present col-
lege program is an extension, and1
sometimes a repetition, of whatf
was done in the high schools."
University departments are oft-
en guilty of being more concern-j
ed with the question, "What willb
our academic colleaguesthink?"'a
than with what is right and prop-?a

Prof. Luke K. Cooperrider of the

"a mechanism by which to im-

The proposal said:
"As the staff of The Michigan
Daily we hope to implement the
following to the best of our abil-
