Hatcher, Thurber Note Possibility
Of Accord on Lifting Speaker Ban
The University administration presently plans no active par-
ticipation in Wayne State University's fight to maintain its revoca-
tion of a ban forbidding Communist speakers on the WSU campus,
President Harlan Hatcher said yesterday.
Regent Donald Thurber agreed with President Hatcher, saying
"We shouldn't try to second guess our sister institution, especially
now that there seems to be a possibility of working everything out

U.S. Statism

Prof. Henry Steele Commager
of Amherst College discussed the
political and governmental cli-'
mate of opinion affecting freedom
of speech in his keynote address
for the Challenge Colloquium
Weekend last night.
Thick dossiers, detailed pass-
ports, intensive fingerprinting,
committee investigations and the
punishment of non-cooperative
citizens are taken for granted by
the citizens of a government prac-
ticing the doctrine of statism, he
Under this doctrine, the state
may do things not authorized by
the Constitution, and in some in-
stances, directly prohibited with-
out judicial or popular protest.
The prohibitions contained in the
Bill of Rights evaporate in the
new concept of the state as an
entity superior to the people who
allow .it its sovereignty, he said.
Big Government
Despite the present administra-
tion's hostility to strong govern-
ment in the realm of economy or,
for example, public health, Prof.
Commager said that no other ad-
ministration has contributed so
much to big government in the
more important realm of ideas.
He pointed out the greater dan-
ger of governmental mistakes in
this area than in legislation af-
fecting material, and therefore
more easily remedied, concerns.
Although a poor government reg-
ulation on slum clearance is eas-
ily alterable, the suppression of
an idea might never be recog-
nized as harmful.
Prof. Commager sees a return
to the world of priority thinking
in the turn from scientific evi-
dence to assumptions and pre-
sumptions. Americans make, for
example, the assumption that a
man can be judged by his asso-
ciations, rather than limiting our
examination to his conduct, he
Undefined Words
Such words as un-American,
security risk, subversive, decent,
and ineitive have no definitions,
he said. These are intangibles,
w'.ich our laws are not construct-
ed to cover. When citizens attempt
to legislate in areas dependent
upon these words the semantics
are paralleling those of Lewis Car-
rol's Humpty Dumpty whose
words meant just what he want-
ed them to mean.

WSU. Hacher's remarks came in
the wake of a threat by state Sen.
Elmer R,. Porter (R-Blissfield) to
cut any increased appropriations
for the Detroit university.
Warns WSU
Porter, who heads the senate's
appropriations committee, orgin-
ally warned WSU that the school
"would be hard put to find any
further tax dollars for its sup-
port as long as the Board of
Governors permits Communist
speakers to appear on campus."
His message was conveyed to the
board through Ann Byerlein, head
of a petitioning group which is
asking the re-instatement of the
speaking ban.
Faculty Comment
Faculty comment on the affair
differed from Hatcher's. Prof.
Wesley H. Mauer, chairman of the
journalism department s a i d,
"Wayne State University is tobe
commended by the general citi-
zenry as well as by the profession
of teaching for its wise policy to
keep its doors open to all opinions
and points of view however an-
noying, unpopular, or dangerous
such expressions may seem to
Prof. Maurer, who is also chair-
man of the University Senate's
Advisory Committee, stressed that
his statement was made "on his
own behalf."
"Such a policy," he continued,
is In agreement with our con-
stitutional guarantees, and our
educational institutions are ob-
ligated, as are all our other in-
stitutions, it seems to me, to sup-
port in practice the liberties these
guarantees imply in any public
test of universly functions and
Ban Dangerous
"To. ban any expounder of an
unpopular view is dangerous be-
cause in the shifting of political
powers and opinions, a policy
adopted by any group in power
to ban extreme positions is likely
to serve as the ground for other
groups who may come to power
later to ban speakers who are
currently responsible.
"Our laws are adequate to pro-
tect us against acts and even in-
fluences overt in nature that affect
the security of our commonwealth
if the danger is clear and im-
"It is important that we as free
peoples recognize at all times that
nothing is so insidiously subver-
sive as public policies curtailing
fre expressions under the pre-
tense that they are intended to
maintain our security.
Vested Strength
"Our strength and our security
are not vested in restricting our
freedoms but in continually ex-
tending them to all our people.
"And although the risks are
ever present in free societies, the
risks of closed societies, are so
much greater as to preclude public
policies that curtail free speech.
"Not only is WSU to be com-
mended for its sturdiness in re-
sisting the advice to curtail
speech; its officers should be as-
sured that they have the ready
and full support of all citizens in
their effort to maintain the se-
curity of democratic institutions
and American principles."

With Michigan playing the
Buckeyes, oh, bring back
that memory to me;
Right there in a wild swirl-
ing ice storm, with tem-
peratures hovering low,
A miracle happened, we
saw it, the roses that
bloomed in the snow."
This, in the eyes of one
Michigan fan, J. Fred Lawton,
is what happened Nov. 25, 1950
--Just 10 years ago this week-
when the miraculous Wolver-
ines edged Ohio State, 9-3 to
win the conference champion-
ship and a Rose Bowl bid.
Even now, those who remem-
ber the game are inclined to
be sentimental about Michi-
gan's last Big Ten title and still
dream of the thrill of the"glory
days" of Wolverine grid su-
Lucky Combination
But even the most avid
among us must admit that it
took a combination of skill,
luck and what is often referred
to as intestinal fortitude for
Michigan to beat the Buckeyes
that day.
A foot of snow, two blocked
kicks, Northwestern's 14-7 upset
of Illinois and the fine punting

turned the Wolverines' worst
season in 13 years into a fourth
consecutive Conference title.
A string of injuries to key
backs Ortmann, Leo Koceski,
and Don Dufek (now Wolverine
freshman coach),- seemingly
had shattered Wolverine hopes
for a Big Ten Championship.
Going into the final week-end
of the season, they were 4-3-1
on the season, 3-1-1 in Con-
ference play. Ohio State lead
the standings with a 5-1 re-
cord, and Illinois was second
with 4-1.
Snow Helps
But miracles can happen, and
one did that afternoon. A foot
of snow helped the Wolverines
contain OSU's All-American,
Vic Janowicz, and whip the
Bucks. And Northwestern's Dick
Flowers led his team to two
second-half touchdowns for a
14-7 victory over the Illini, pre-
viously ranked sixth in the
Actually, that the game was
played at all could be classified
as a mircle. It snowed all the
previous night and morning
and grounds crew had worked
feverishly to ready the field as
much as possible for the game.

seen. It snowed throughout the
ame to such an extent that
radio announcers were forced to
say 'it. lcoks like the ball is on
the 40 i, but we really
can't say for sure."
Ball Stops
And when the ball was punt-
ed as it often was that after-
noon, it didn't bounce, it didn't
roll, it just plopped dead in a,
snow drift.
The biggest miracle of all
was that 50,000 brave and
hearty spectators should have
come to sit in the Bucks' wind-
whipped horseshoe shaped sta-
Aside from the circumstances
surrounding the game itself, its
statistics must certainly rank
as the oddest in Conference his-
tory. The Wolverines gained
only 27 yards total and made
no first downs, yet turned two
blocked punts into a safety
and a touchdown to overcome
an early field goal by Janowicz
Before the game, the Con-
ference record for number of
punts in one game was 14. Ort-
mann punted 14 times in the
first half alone, 24 times in the
game. Janowicz punted 21 times
for Ohio State, and their com-

For the Wolverines three
players stood out in the victory
--Ortmann, Tony Momsen, and
captain Al Wahl.
Although Janowicz out-aver-
aged Ortmann in punting, 32-
30. the Michigan tailback came
through with several key punts,
to keep the Wolverines out of
trouble. Once he punted the
ball from his own one-foot line
to the mid-field stripe to relieve
the pressure.
Momsen blocked a punt and
fell on the ball in the end zone
for the game-winning touch-
down, while Wahl blocked the
punt that led to the OSU safety.
Actually, however, it was
what everybody likes to call a
"team victory." The courageous
Michigan line held Janowicz
and OSU to only three first
downs, and a total of 41 yards,
and made several key defensive
plays when Ohio State was
pressing for an equalizing
Tomorrow, the Wolverines
will "try for another team vic-
tory. It won't be as much a
miracle if they win; no roses
will bloom; it probably won't
even snow. But a victory would
give Michigan a 6-3 record for
its best season since 1956.


Wolverines ran up a 7-2 rec-
ord and finished second in the
Big Ten standings.
Biggest Task
Michigan's biggest task will. be
to stop Ohio State's "four yards
and a cloud of dust offense." This
fall, Buckeye Coach Woody Hayes
has tried a little more passing than
in past, years, but the offense is
basically the same one Ohio State
has used successfully for so many
Leading this offense will be
fullback Bob Ferguson and quar-
terback Tom Matte, who have
carried the ball on at least 75
per cent of Ohio State's plays this
fall. Several times this season full-
back Ferguson has been the ball.
carrier for more than ten plays
in a row.
The success of this offense is
due mainly to Ohio State's fine
forward wall. Averaging 216
pounds from end to end, the Buck-
eye forward wall is not as big
s it has been in previous years,
lbut a look at the statistics shows
that it has been successful.

Kasavubu Winning Fight for Seating

President Joseph Kasavubu yes-
terday won the first round in his
fight for a seat in the United
Nations General Assembly, bol-
stering considerably his chances
of ultimate victory.
The harbinger of victory came
on a motion by Ghana in the 99-
nation Assembly to adjourn with-
out considering a recommenda-
tion of the Assembly's credentials
committee to seat a delegation
headed by Kasavubu.
Ghana sought to delay until an

mission tried for an on-the-spot

Suits Gives Mathematical
Model of U.S. Economy
"The nation is now in a modest recession," economics professor
Daniel B. Suits said yesterday, "-the outlook for 1961 certainly is
not healthy, but no calamity is in view."
Speaking at the eighth annual Conference on the Economic Out-
look here, Suits predicted an unemployment increase despite a slight
upturn in economic activity.,

and services production, will rise FEEL MEANINGLI

Liberia, Pakistan, Somalia, and
Upper Volta.
Solid Soviet
The Soviet bloc voted solidly
for postponement along with
Ghana, Guinea, India and other
nations who are backing a Lum-
umba delegation.
Some United Nations sources
said Mali and Guinea had threat-
ened to quit the commission if
Kasavubu were "seated, and that
Ghana and India would resign if
that occurred.
The commission decided Thurs-
day night it would begin its work

But Kasavubu has declared the
commission should not go with-
out his consent-and this could
not be given until he obtains his

U.S. Claim
Cuba Army
ed States charged last night that
Cuba has received at least 28,000
tons of arms from the Soviet bloc,
including tanks, automatic weap-
ons, field guns and eight jet fight-
er planes.
A State Department statement
called Cuba's army the largest in
all Latin America.
The department accused the
Communist powers of contribut-
ing to tension in the Caribbean
"by burdening the Cuban econo-
my with excessive arms purchases
and by supporting the aggressive
policies" of Prime Minister Fidel
"At least 12 Soviet ships have
delivered arms and ammunition to
Cuba since July of this year,"
the statement said, "the most
recent being one which unloaded
approximately 6,000 tons of arms
. . . on Nov. 7, 1960."
The United States statement
reported Castro has built up an
armed military force "larger than
any army in Latin America" and
ten times bigger than the force
of ex-Cuban President Fulgenpio

For the Buckeyes lead the Big
Ten in both total yards gained
and in total yards rushing. Be-
hind this hard-charging forward
wall, Fergusoh and Matte have
risen to the top of the Conference
in individual statistical races.
Ferguson is the Big Ten's lead-
ing ground gainer with 480 yards
in 98 carries for a 4.9-yard aver-
age and Matte is second witl4 430
yards in 85 carries for a 5,1-yard

pleted 30 of 58 passes for 441
yards. He is also second in total
offense with 871 yards.
Formidable Task
Last weekend Iowa slowed the
Buckeye attack with a "new" de-
fense and went on to rout 'the
Ohioans, 35-12. Whether Michi-
gan can duplicate Iowa's success-
ful defensive maneuvers and
whether Buckeye Coach Hayes
will alter his offense to counter
the "new" offensive tactics pro-

In spite of the slightly higher

Suits' prediction is based on four
assumptions: 1) no change in con-

local government spending, 3) a
projected $2 billion increase in
govrenment defense orders during
1961, and 4) continued easing of

Tiilich Views Change in Modern Student

"A tremendous change has come
over the student in the last 15
years," Prof. Paul Tillich said yes-
terday after his campus lecture
on "Symbolism: Its Significance
in Religion."
"The students feel their own
predicament very painfully be-
cause they think themselves mean-
ingless in the world. This mean-
inglessness is forced by a world
civilization that is not interested
in the vertical, but the horizontal,"
the philosopher-theologian noted.
"We are all for ranging all over
the place with projects and in-
ventions which remain at a shal-
low level. We never go up to the
ultimate questions of life. We don't
ask 'For what?' are we doing

fessor said. "When I came to the
Union Theological Seminary in
1937, the main interest was social
ethics. Then it switched to syste-
matic theology, then to religion
and psychotherapy, and on and
Prof. Tillich said he sensed a
more interested reaction among
his student listeners when he dis-
cussed the existential idea of life
than when he dealt with abstract
doctrine. "Existentialism, in the
large sense of the word, is the
philosophy of the life of our times.
It is decisive everywhere and has
always been present in all ideas
and philosophies. In this century
it has broken into literature,
music, and the visual arts."
Chooses Course

little later when I meditated in
the old Gothic church of which
my father was rector," the 74-
year-old professor said, smiling
at the memory.
Prof. Tillich now occupies a
unique position on the Harvard
faculty. He is a "university pro-
fessor" who is not bound to lec-
ture on material in any one de-
partment. "Right now," he said,
"I am on the theology, philosophy,
and general education faculties.
The last is the undergraduate hu-
manities program."
Flees Germany
Prof. Tillich. who holds 13 hon-
orary degrees, was compelled to
leave Germany in the mid-Thirties
because he was an outspoken critic
of Nazism. He has returned to his
native land several times since
