Koch Advocates
Scientific Morals
Lectures Fire Controversy at MSU;
Hannah Hits Talks as 'Repugnant'
Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING-Prof. Leo F. Koch, fired from his post at the
University of Illinois for his expression of views advocating pre-
marital sexual relations, yesterday called for a moral code based on
scientific studies.
Koch, who received his Ph.D. in botany from the University in
1950, has been under attack from Michigan State University Presi-
dent John A. Hannah and the MSU Conservative Club for the ideas
he expressed in four lectures on the East Lansing campus last week.
Answers Hannah
Rebutting the Hannah statement, concerning Koch's doubts
about the meaning of the family unit and the sanctity of the marriage
vows: he said: "By avoiding the is-

Social Policy
Anyone who doesn't think tha
social reform is a "revolution of
rising expectations" perpetrated
by people who want a better life
is "missing one of the basic facts
of our time," Sen. Hubert Hum.
phrey (D-Minn) said yesterday.
Russell Kirk, however, supported
"evolution as opposed to revolu-
tion" and "continuity, not replace.

ward Emerging Nations. Kirk is
editor of "Modern Age: A Con.
servative Review."
"Politics cannot be transplantec
but must grow out of the culture,
he said. Reform may "supplant
justice for a time, but the cultur
will eventually reassert itself."
Use Any Means
This was in contrast to Hum-
phrey's comments that developing
nations were "tired of the past'
and would use any means "to gair
Revolution exists in areas where
people are exploited by "white
races and native tyrannies." They
are now learning about democratic
doctrines and will not bear ex-
ploitation any longer, Humphrey
"These people want not only
goods, but freedom. They hate
domination more than poverty and
demand recognition and status."
Kirk maintained that "people
are fortunate if the government
is stable and just. People are not
made for perfection."
Emphasized Tradition
He emphasized that govern-
ments should have great regard
for tradition. "Politics is taught
through historical process," he
He cited Pakistan as an example
of stable government which was
"founded on religious tradition
and respect for the past."
The debaters differed also as
to the role of America in these
areas of "social ferment."
Humphrey called for consolidat-
ed effort on the part of the free
world acting, as one entity," to
"combat the conditions which
make totalitarianism possible,"
such as illiteracy and poverty.
U.S. Overdrawn
He supported a multilateral pro-.
gram fo "massive economic as-
sistance" but at the same time
warned against "checkbook di-
plomacy," saying it was a "colossal
failure and the United States is
already overdrawn."
This economic aid would be
directed toward those nations
which made a "sincere effort to-
ward internal reform and toward
boardening the base of privilege,"
Humphrey said.
Both agreed that foreign policy
should not be directed toward
"transforming the world into the
American image." Kirk warned
against the false expectation that
new nations "are going to develop
into little copies of the United
States." Humphrey stressed that
the United States take the lead,
"with humility" in organizing and
pooling the skills of the free world.

sues and referring to my views as
repugnant, In bad taste, and ini-
mical to the best interests of the
society,' President Hannah has
alignedhimself with the forces of
reaction rather than with those
of education."
He also said, "Academic free-
dom in America is severely lim-
ited. If someone expresses a non-
conformist view, he is exposed to
certain very heavy social pres-
sures. In my case, it was loss of
my job and ostracism.
Limitation of Free Speech
"Trying to distinguish academic
freedom and something called 're-
sponsibility' is ridiculous. It is a
paper distinction which in prac-
tice amounts to the limitation of
free speech."
He noted that the only regulat-
tion of free 'speech he would allow
is in interpersonal relations where
one person held a psychological
weapon' over the other. He cited
adult, child and employer-employe
relationships as examples of such
"There is a definite ethical

Measure Response
Commenting on his present lec-
ture tour, he said, "Direct re-
sponse has been in inverse- pro-

"The system has a way of sol-

of people as they grow older. So
far, the most enthusiastic response
I have received has been here at
He also charged that his views
have often been misrepresented,
Advocates Permissive Affection
"I do not advocate free love as
the conservative club charged.
Rather, I advocate what Dr. Ira
Rice calls 'permissiveness with af-
fection' as opposed to 'permissive-
ness h.vt affection' which is
what most people associate with*
the term 'free love'."
Calling for a scientific investi-
gation into questions of morality,
he. said, "I cannot conceive of
any other means of education that
will lead to a worlkable solution.
Other means have led to wide-
spread hypocrisy. My ideas are al-
ready accepted; people are just
afraid of expressing them in pub-

Pledges U.S.
To Support
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of State Dean Rusk said last night
he expects a cease-fire to be an-
nounced for Laos within the next
24-48 hours.
He pledged the United States
will try to establsh a neutral, in-
dependent Laos through negotia-
Addressing the American So-
ciety of Newspaper Editors, Rusk
gave American confirmation that
the long-sought cease-fire for the
troubled Southeast Asian country
is now in sight just around the
British officials in London re-
ported yesterday that Britain and
the Soviet Union have settled all
the political terms of an agree-
ment for a truce in Laos by next
Informants in London said a
joint appeal -by Britain and Russia
will be made to Laotians to lay
down their arms within 24 or 48
Rusk cautioned, however, that
the international conference slaied
to follow on Laos' future will in-
volve tough bargaining with the
He said we cannot underestimate
"the danger and the complexity
of these negotiations."
Agree on Neutrality
He said both the Communists
and the non-Communist powers
agree Laos should be "neutral"
like Austria but the big question
is whether the Reds mean the
same thing by that word as do
the non-Communists.
Meanwhile Soviet planes have;
been airlifting arms to the rebels
daily. The United States in ihe
past few days started changing1
its military advisers in Laos to
uniformed men who are supposed
to go into the combat areaswith
Royal Lao government troops.
Warns About Viet Nam
Rusk balanced off his promising
report on Laos by warning the
editors that the deteriorating sit-j
uation in Viet Nam is causings
serious concern in Washington.
It opens the prospect that "as
one crisis area leaves the head-,
lines, the posibility is that another
will take its place," he said.
The true neutrality and inde-
pendence of Laos is "critical to
the security of Southeast Asia,"1
Rusk said.
The prospect of a ceasefire-
which Rusk said he expected "un-
less untoward event happen" -
would throw into a new phase a
problem which the United States
government has considered one
of the most serious on the cold
war scene.
Washington has been seeking a
stop to the fighting with increas-
ing urgency since the pro-Com-r
munist rebels began their current
drive last December.

Takes Five
Relay Events
Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS-A soggy track and
a drizzle that kept up all after-
noon discouraged the record-
breakers but couldn't keep Mich-
igan from splashing to convincing
wins in four of the six featured
relay races yesterday at the Ohio
These plus a great winning ef-
fort of 54'8%/4" by Ray Locke in
the shot put gave the Wolverines
five firsts to go with two sec-
onds and three thirds.
No Team Score
No team score was kept, but
the Wolverines didn't care. They
even left before the whole show
was over.
It was the weather which kept
Michigan from trying to equal last
year's output of five relay wins.
The meet was running more than
an hour behind schedule as it was,
and the mile relay was to be the
last on the program.
Canham Leaves
Coach Don Canham decided it
wasn'tworth sticking around, so
he scratched Michigan- in that
event and pulled the team out
right before the relay.
It would have been hard to find
four men who hada't already done
a day's work. "You have to run
harder to get a slower time," ex-
plained Assistant Coach Elmer
Swanson about the wet track.
Tom Robinson, who is watching
a sore back, didn't make the trip.
The distance medley relay (880,
440, 1,320, mile) was first on the
list for the Wolverines. Charlie

By de Gaulle
De Pouilly Retreats;
Junta Seizes Oran,
Enters West Algeria
PARIS (MP)-The French gov-
ernment said last night the right-
wing military junta which seized
Algiers in a bloodless coup yester-
day' has extended its control to
Western Algeria by taking over
the city of Oran.
The coup prompted President
Charles de Gaulle to assume ex-
traordinary police powers and call
a cabinet session which pro-
claimed a state of emergency in
A government announcement
said detachments of French for-
eign legion paratroopers supported
by the mass of European settlers
in Oran, took over in the city un-
der the insurrectional regime of
Gen. Maurice Challe.
Moves Post
The announcement said Gen. de
Pouilly, Oran comandant, re-
mained loyal to de Gaulle and
moved his command post to the
city of Tlemcen.
The sudden stroke by the junta
split the 500,000-man French army
in Algeia into rival groups. Com-
munications with the vast French
territory across the Mediterranean
were cut off and the only word
from Algeria came from broad-
casts over Radio Algiers in the
name of Challe.
Thepre-dawn coup established
Challe's control of Algiers with-
out bloodshed or obvious opposi-
tion. But most of Algeria-outside
of Algiers and Oran-apparently
remained loyal to de Gaulle,
supporting his plans to start
negotiations with nationalist reb-
els for an end to the nearly
seven-year-old Algerian rebellion
and eventual independence from
Extend Control
Radio Algiers had announced
earlier that the junta had ex-
tended control to Oran with the
backing of the garrison there.
The Algiers radio said younger
officers had forced de Pouilly to
bow to the "imperatives" of the
army. The general was sent off to
duty with a unit in the field
against the Algerian nationalists.
According to the broadcast
monitored in Marseille, the action
against de Pouilly was in effect
a mutiny by the younger officers,
supported by the mass of the
European population of Oran.
Gardy Takes Power
The broadcast said a Gen.
Gardy would take over full civil
and military power in Oran in
place of de Pouilly.
The government announcement
said that two de Gaulle lieuten-
ants who flew into Oran this
morning with full powers to put
down the insurrection were "as-
suming their responsibilities."
This apparently meant that
Louis Joxe, Algerian affairs min-
ister, and Gen. Jean Olie, named
by de Gaulle as commander-in-
chief for all Algeria, had escap-
ed capture by the dissidents.
Earlier reports said they had
set up headquarters at Merse-El-
Kebir, a heavily defended naval
base outside Oran. The govern-
ment said the two had inspected
areas outside Algiers and Oran
which still are loyal to de Gaulle.

Blueshevick Revolution Defeats Maize

The Blue Team retained its crown last night, as the Blueshevik
revolution emerged victorious with 80 points in Frosh Weekend
Their completely original skit depicted the struggle for power by
the Bluesheviks, rebels conspiring against the Matski aristocracy.
The Bluesheviks were victorious due to the ingenious plan of a lowly
piano player, who also won the love of the heroine, Gypsy Blue Rose.
Enter Dennis the Menace
The Maize skit showed the loss of love in the world through
Cupid's loss of his slingshot. He eventually found it in the hands of
Dennis the Menace who had used it unwittingly and matched the
wrong lovers together. Cupid, of course, resolved the problem and all
were happy in the end.
