Seventy-Two Years of Editorial Freedom


On A
Lewis Views
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis spoke to Stu-
dent Government Council last
night on his relation to Council
and SGC's relation to the proposed
advisory committee for the new
Office of Student Affairs.
SGC should not be hesitant,
Lewis said, to discuss contemplat-
ed legislation with administra-
tors and faculty members. If they
were invited to discuss campus
problems with Council, it would be
more likely that Lewis would not
consider SGC's actions unreason-
able. Prior consultation therefore
lowers the possibility that a mo-
tion will be vetoed.
Lewis stressed that the power
to veto SGC's actions rests with
him alone.
Prior Consultation"
He added that the proposed ad-
visory committee would be a good
instrument for prior consulta-
tion. Howard Abrams, '63, asked
whether the committee would di-
lute the power of SGC, presently
the official liaison between the
students and the administration
and faculty.
The students on the advisory
committee, Lewis answered, could
easily report the discussions of the
committee. In addition, SGC could
recommend that certain points be
brought up at the next meeting of
the committee.
Turning to the nature of the ad-
visory committee, Lewis said that
its purpose would be to inform
him of various opinions-not to
reach a consensus on any given
pr blem. For thi sreason, nc votes
would be taken.
Stating Opinions
Robert Ross, '63, asked Lewis
whether he considered a vte as a
method of clearly stating one's
opinions. Lewis replied that he
would like to have opinions "push-
ed in all directions," and a vote
would be likely to be a barrier to
such diversity.
Daily Editor Michael Olinick, '63,
asked whether Lewis would object
to a system in which any mem-
ber of SGC or the Student Rela-
tions Committee could attend
meetings of the advisory commit-
This would make the commit-
tee cumbersome, Lewis replied. The
variety of opinion would decrease
instead of increase. However, if
the. Council would want to try
this systme, Lewis would not be
denifitely opposed to it.
Senate Rejects
Mailing Plan
WASHINGTON ()-The Senate
rejected.last night a move to strike
out of a bill to raise postal rates
and federal pay a section aimed
at mailign of Communist propa-
ganda in this country.

dThis was the only vote taken in
the first day of the debate on the
bill, but sponsors looked for a
quicker pace today with final rass-
age likely.
Majority Leader Mike Mansfield
(D-Mont) called the Senate in to-
day three hours ahead of the usual
Sen. Joseph S. Clark (D-Pa) of-
fered the amendment to delete
the section on Communist propa-
ganda from the bill approved by
the Senate Post Office and Civil
Service Committee.
This section was a substitute for
a rnore far-reaching provision in-
eluded in the House bill and
strongly opposed by President John
F. Kennedy.
The House provision would have
prevented the Post Office from
handling in first, second, or third
class, any Communist .political
propaganda financed or sponsored
by a Communist-controlled gov-
ernment. It would not have pre-
vented shipment in parcel post.



Blocks Third Meredith Try



Szklenkay Flees to U.S., Freedom

Of the Detroit Free Press
DETROIT VP) - The slender
blonde glanced up and down
the Rue de Faubourg in Paris,
then quickly slipped an envelope
into the ornate French mailbox.
Praying she had gone unde-
tected, Emese Szklenkay, a 20-
year-old dancer from Budapest,
vanished into the crowd and re-
joined a Hungarian national
folk dance troupe.
That letter, postmarked the
evening of Sept. 10, arrived
shortly before noon two days
later at a white frame house
in Ann Arbor.
Scarce News
Mrs. Marguerite Dinka, a
pretty housewife and Emese's
older sister, trembled as she rip-
ped open the envelope. News
from relatives behind the Iron
Curtain is scarce and seldom
The letter said Emese was
then in Paris, but the troupe
was going that day to northern
Then it added, in part: "We
shall be back in Paris again on
the 19th, 20th and 21st of this
month (September). I don't
know how you could arrange
a meeting with me one of these
days. I would like it very much
if you could arrange it finan-
cially. Please excuse this hur-
ried style, but I have only a
short time."
Afternoon Visit
Mrs. Dinka's brain whirled.
The letter's meaning was clear.
Emese knew that a pleasant
trip to Paris for an afternoon

ka saw Jack C. Stewart of the
Immigration and Naturalization
Service in Detroit. He was sym-
pathetic but though the pro-
posal of escape almost impos-
Stewart sent him to the Free
Press. Then he laid out his des-
perate plans to go to Paris
and snatch the girl from her
Communist guards.
Free Press editors recognized
the odds involved, but were im-
pressed with Dinka's determin-
ation. They agreed that the
Free Press would finance the
venture and provide all possi-
ble help.
In two hours James Haswell
of the Free Press Washington
bureau had approached a half
dozen federal officials and re-
layed back a thorough outline
on procedure to be followed.
By late Friday, Dinka had his
passport and smallpox vacci-
He was provided with a work-
ing partner in Free Press cor-
respondent Mary Goodfellow.
Mrs. Dinka pointed out that
in her letter, her sister had
promised to write again the fol-
lowing day to supply the Din-.
kas with her address in Paris.
Although ample time had elaps-
ed, no letter had arrived.
As the day wore on, nerves
wore away. There was no clue.
It had been decided that Din-
ka would make the final deci-
sion on whether he would go

visit was financially impossi-
ble for the Dinkas.
Mrs. Dinka knew the letter
had to be' carefully worded in
case it was found on her be-
fore she could mail it.
That evening, Mrs. Dinka and
her husband, Stephen, now a
research assistant and doctoral

Council also postponed action
concerning the nature of an Ad-
visory Committee for the. Office
of Student Affairs. SGC passed a
motion to establish a student fac-
ulty committee to investigate the
University judicial system which
will report its findings next March.
After meeting in executive ses-
sion for over an hour, Council is-
sued the following statement about
the hearings:
Considers Questions
"In executive session, SGC con-
sidered a series of legal questions
as presented to the body in a let-
ter from Prof. Robert J. Harris of
the law school. In lieu of these
q u e s t i o n s, SGC unanimously
adopted the following motion:
"That SGC postpone its consid-
eration of the procedure for ade-
quacy hearings until such time as
adequate legal counsel and guid-
ance has been obtained.
"SGC mandates the president
to take all the steps necessary to
secure such legal counsel for SGC
with all possible speed.
"SGC desires the advice of legal
counsel admitted to the Bar of the
State of Michigan before proceed-
ing' further."
Make Letter Public
SGC President Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, said that if the letter
were made public or the Council's
discussion of it, SGC might be put
in a severe position.
The postponed motion on the
OSA advisory committee, was in-
troduced by Robert Ross, '63, and
Daily editor Michael Olinick, '63,
It asked that instead of a commit-
tee made up of faculty members of
the Senate sub-committee on Stu-
dent relations and five SGC mem-
bers that the entire Council per-
form the student function as a

Alternate Methods
The motion also proposed al-
ternate methods by which the
OSA could receive joint faculty-
student counsel. It recommended
that if an advisory committee were
set up, a formal voting procedure
be established to register advisory
opinion. The original proposal
called for informal discussion only.
The Ross-Olinick motion was
criticized fo rbeing an attempt
not to cooperate with the OSA.

Washburne Talks on World-Mindedness

Either we must develop world-
mindedness or else we will event-
ually not have a world, Prof.
Carleton Washburne of Michigan
State University said last night.
Washburne, who heads a re-
search group advisory to UNESCO,
spoke on the topic "Education for
Washburne gave three basic
facts which, he said, children and
adults alike should "not merely
recognize, but realize." The first
of these is that all humanity has
needs which are basic and essen-

as food, air, and shelter from the

examples of techniques teachers
could use in school and parents
could use at home to replace pre-
judice with world-mindedness.
"In the world's good is our own,
and in our own, the world's,"
Washburne said.
Washburne's address was spon-

sored by the Ann Arbor Commun-
ity and Public Schools.

McCray Jailed
Another governor, Warren T.
McCray of Indian, was jailed in
1924, government records show.
But that had nothing to do with
the philosophy of government and
states' rights. McCray was con-,
victed of misusing the mails. He
resigned the day after being sen-
tenced to 10 years and was paroled
in 1927.
Mississippi Governor
The Mississippi governor's defi-
ance of a federal appellate court
order in the James H. Meredith
case had government lawyers
searchingdfar into the night to yee
whether any other governor had
ever been the defendant in con-
tempt of court proceedings.
The search was not immediately
productive, but they did come up
with a 1932 Supreme Court ruling
that the governor of a state is
subject to the process of the fed-
eral courts for the relief of private
persons when he uses his official
position to violate someone's Con-
stitutional rights.
This involved Gov. Sterling of
Texas, who proclaimed martial
law in several oil producing coun-
ties during a dispute with some oil
Sterling contended the operators
had defied a state oil conservation
law designed to prevent wasteful
production of oil.
Declaring that the actions of
the operators, threatened insur-
rection and riot, Sterling shut
down the wells by military force
and authorized state officials to
fix the limit of oil production.
The operators took him to court.
The Supreme Court upheld them.

U.S. Marslialls
Await Orders
MEMPHIS () - A stream of
United States marshals moved
through the.big naval air station
here yesterday in 'anticipation of
further action in the Mississippi
integration crisis.
The marshals checked into and
out of the base during the day
and cars with four and five mar-
shals in each were unofficially re-
ported moving south toward Ox-
ford, site of the University of Mis-
sissippi which Negro James H.
Meredith is attempting to enter.
Lt. Cmdr. David Robertson, pub-
lic information officer at the base,
would say onl ythat "from 20 to
25 marshals a day" were passing
through the base.
He said last Wednesday that
there were 25 marshals on the base.
Robertson refused to comment
on the activities of the marshals.
There were also unconfirmed re-
ports that security restrictions at
the base were being tightened.
This involved Gov. Sterling of

Interfraternity Council President John Meyerholz, '63, told
prospective rushees that they were "mature enough to decide for
yourselves just who to listen to and who to believe" about the values
of fraternity living.
Speaking last night to the mass rush meeting at the Michigan
Union Meyerholz said that there are many people writing and dis-
cussing fraternities who have never experienced affiliated living.
"They can only speculate as to its worth and to the actual facts.

their entire four years at college to working with and understanding

"I leave you to decide for yourself to whom youshould listen,"
" he added.
Meyerholz said that to his knowledge there was no national
fraternity at the University which selected its members on any other
criteria besides personal merit.
"This could not be said tenyears ago, but today there is little
bind between the national and the local."
