A bill requiring all employes of
tax-supported Michigan institu-
tions to sign loyalty oaths would
apparently not affect University
Vice-President and Dean of Fac-
ulties Marvin L. Niehuss said Uni-
versity employes already sign an
oath similar to that taken by legis-
lators and other state officials
when taking office.
"The oath has been in effect
since the 1930's," he said, "and
although there was some debate
when it was first introduced, I
cannot recall any recent objections
to it by faculty members."
The new bill, introduced last
week by Rep. Lester J. Allen (R-
Ithaca) and Rep. Frederic J. Mar-
shall (R-Allen), has received sharp
criticism from Gov. John B.
Swainson who objected to the "in-
dignities it places on individuals"
and called it "a shopworn tactic
that started in the education field
-where it is particularly offen-
Backing Swainson's stand, Rep.
Joseph A. Gillis, Jr. (D-Detroit)
said, "the universities are provid-
ed for in the State's constitution
and it's unconstitutional for the
Legislature to try to require loyal-
ty oaths of their staffs."
Prof. John Reed of the law school
and chairman of the University
Committee on Freedom and Re-
sponsibility said his group has not
studied the history of loyalty oaths
at the University.
'Many faculty members are will-
ing to aver loyalty to the govern-
ment," he said. "Many, however,
find it distasteful to be compelled
to sign an oath not required of
the general public."
Basically, lie emphasized, such
legislative proposals are nothing
new, but arise from time to time.
Niehuss says. he does not con-
sider signature of an. oath an in.:
sult to faculty members. 'State
employees, congressmen and the
President do not consider it an
insult," he said. "I do not believe
most faculty members would object
to taking the same oath of loyalty
to the constitution and the coun-
try." He knows of no individuals
who have refused a University
appointment because of the re-
He does not, however, believe
that such measures are effective
for locating subversives or pre-
venting such individuals from ac-

Representatives from the five
mnilitary services will be at the
University for the next three days
to explain to any interested stu-
dents the opportunities available
for graduates to become officers.
Since during the Berlin crisis
the number of officers was in-
creased by 400 per cent, the serv-
ices must attract one out of every
10 graduating students into off i-
cer training programs.
Representatives from the , Air
Force, Army, Navy, Marines
and Coast Guard will be on
hand from 9 am. to 5 p.m. today

from two to five years among the
All five services also offer a di-
rect commission program, in
which college graduates in fields
such as law, medicine, and dentis-
try may apply for an immediate
commission in active duty, thus
bypassing the training school.
The Army, Navy and Air Force
also offer special programs for wo-
men. One of them involves a pro-
gram for women nurses, dieticians
and therapists for their junior and.
senior years, during which the
service will pay tuition and fees.
During the last six months of this
program, the women are commis-
sioned second lieutenants.
The representatives also point
out that salaries and mobility are
virtually the same among college
graduates in comparison between
military and non-military careers.
The starting base pay for an en-
sign or second lieutenant is $338
a month, with fliers or navigators
getting an extra $100 per month.
Underclassmen are allowed to
take the Navy, Coast Guard and
Marine qualifying examinations if
they wish, although the Army's
test is restricted to juniors or
seniors and the Air Force's to
seniors. The student may take the
test without committing himself in
