The statement was issued in re

cumbent U.S. Rep. George Meade
in which Vice-President for Re-
search Ralph Sawyer is quoted as
tnking Meader for his help to

"Both Meader and Stanley Is

nomination) h a v e been good'r

day's statement said.

This was because of the Univer-
sity's wish to acknowledge pub-

Firings Stir eba-t
Second in a 8e6ies
"Violation of academic freedom," the critics cried 10 years
ago when the University dismissed two professors for refusing
to answer questions before the House Un-American Activties:
"Nobody's freedom has been invaded or abridged," Uni-
versity President Harlan Hatcher asserted. The professors hadl
an obligation- to the University to testify on their alleged
Communist affiliations and political beliefs.
And so the battle lines were drawn in what was the hottest]
controversy at the University during the tense era of the 1954
McCarthy investigations. The dismissals issue was still rever-
berating four years later, and some critics feel it is still
affecting the University.
The controversy began at the peak of the congressional
hunt for Communist Party members, when HUAC opened
hearings in Lansing in the spring of 1954.
Refused To Answer
At first the hearings were as remote from the University
as possible in those days. The explosion came when three pro-a
fessors were subpoenaed by the committee, refused to answer
questions and on the same day were suspended from their,
teaching duties.
Professors Mark Nickerson of the medical school andR
Clement Markert of the zoology department had claimed theirr
immunity under the Fifth Amendment, from having to testify
against themselves. H. Chandler Davis, mathematics instructor,
stuck to a First Amendment contention that the committee's
questions violated his freedom of speech.>
Hatcher immediately asked the executive committees of
the Medical School and literary college to investigate the cases
and recommend either reinstatement or dismissal.
In addition, he later appealed to a special faculty Senate
advisory committee for counsel. The committee was part of
a complex procedure which had' been established several months
before the hearings, at the faculty"s insistence, to handle
suspensions and firings.
Fitness To Teach
Critics of Hatcher's actions called it everything from un-
necessary to a violation of the professor's rights to withhold
possibly incriminating information. The President said the
three men had shown disloyalty to the University and had'
cast serious doubts on their fitness to teach.
The Congressional investigations finished quickly, but the
faculty deliberations dragged on into the summer.
Davis, who had followed the most dangerous course pos-
sible in invoking the First Amendment, continued refusing to
discuss his political beliefs and affiliations. When the literary
college executive committee, a mathematics department com-
mittee and the Senate advisory committee questioned him,"'he
would give only his reason for not speaking: "I will not talk
politics under duress.".
All three groups recommended that Davis be fired. x
In July, Hatcher notified the instructor that he would ask
the Regents for dismissal.>
Last Appeal
Davis at once appealed-as he was authorized to do under
the previously-established procedures-to another faculty group,M
the Committee on Intellectual Freedom and Integrity. Again,
however, he would not volunteer specifics. This group, too,

State of the College
Kelly said it had been under-
stood that the committee would
prepare of a "State of the College"
report once a year. But he didn't
think any such report was expect-
ed for about a year from the time
the committee was named.
A letter from Dean Haber to the
literary college faculty at that
time stated that "many members
of our faculty . . . raised serious
questions concerning trends, direc-
tion, alternatives and priorities.
Kelly said the committee has
already touched on such topics as
University size, the residential col-
lege, how the University can re-
main a great institution and grow
at the same time, how it can com-
pete for the funds needed by an
institution of this "magnitude and

The situation was copared by
officials to the early 1950s when
the University also underwent an
admission boom.
All Major Divisions
Overcrowding has spread across
all major divisions of the college's
program. Social a n d natural
sciences and foreign languages,
the usually popular divisions, hif
suffered thegreatest rowng.a
However, the other divisions -
English and the humanities-are
also swamped.
The introductory English course,

the college didn't want to over-

Overcrowding difficulties were
not reported in some other schools
-including gthe nursing, music,
engineering and graduate schools.
These units all have students en-
rolled in literary college courses.
In a series of phone interviews
conducted last evening, depart-
mient chairmen saw "a general en-.
rollment problem' touched off by
an unexpectedly high freshman
class. Literary college officials
predicted a freshman enrollment
increase of from 400-500 students
last spring. The increase is re-
portedly at least 700 students, with
final figures not yet announced.
The total class is now about 2600.
Upperclass Totals High
Associate Dean of the Literary
College James H. Robertson also
pointed to unprecedented upper-
class totals, fostered in the enroll-
ment splurges of the past few
Dean William Haber of the
literary college was unavailable
for comment.
Prof. James C. O'Neil, chairman
of the romance language depart-
ment, reported the department
"has been turning away qualified
people at all levels since the first
day of registration." He added
that he has been forced to raise
recitation limits from 22 to 26
or 27.
"This may seem like a small
difference, but it's important for
the success of language instruc-
tion," he said. "This year's over-
enrollment wipes out all of our
efforts in the past few years to
keep recitation classes small."
Prof. Samuel Eldersveld, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, expressed concern over
jam-ups of 100-level (basic fresh-
man) courses,. as well as courses
in the 400-bracket. He attributed
part of the 'interest in political
science to the impetus of an elec-

tion. year.
Natural Sciences
In the natural sciences, the
overcrowding was reportedly Just
as serious. Prof. David M. Den-
nison, chairman of the physics
department, disclosed "some prob-
lems, but not necessarily acute
ones." He explained that the ma-
jority of physics students are
