Article Deseribes Academic Freedom
State universities should be "ar-
dent advocates of free enterprise"
teaching "the principles that made
this nation great," George A. New-
ton, former president of the In-
vestment Bankers Association of
America, declared Friday.
A luncheon speaker before the
Association of Governing Boards
of State Universities and Allied
Institutions, Newton denounced
"the holes being shot through our
free enterprise system."
As examples, he cited the recent
case in which "Big Government
displayed its might in anger
against Big Steel," the Senate op-
position to private ownership of
the Telstar satellite, and "feather-
The University, in collaboration
with five other state colleges, is
offering a special program for as-
sisting students aiming at careers
as college teachers.
The new program, "Michigan
Scholars in College Teaching," has
been made possible by a grant
from the Ford Foundation, which
integrates the last two college
years with the first year of grad-
Participating with the Universi-
ty are Albion College, Alma Col-
lege, Calvin and Hope Colleges at
Holland, and Iglamazoo College.
Under the program students,
who are-selected for scholastic ex-
cellence by the faculty members
of the colleges taking part, are
given special opportunities and
counseling in their own schools.
The program is designed so that
the undergraduate student in the
participating colleges will be able
to move ahead rapidly and effec-
tively in his graduate work at the
'U' Students Eligible
Virtually every discipline taught
at the baccalaureate level will be
open to students under this pro-
gram at the University.
The student will receive advice
regarding preparation to teach in
the area of his choice. At each of
the colleges a coordinator has
been appointed to work with the,
student and the appropriate Uni-
versity graduate department. It
will also provide information re-
garding available scholarship aids.+
bedding" by unions in the airlines
and railroad industries.
In a more general context, he
condemned the growth of govern-
ment activity in the areas of busi-
ness regulation, welfare, and
spending in general.
"This is a far cry from the rug-
ged individualism of our ances-
tors," Newton charged.
"Ours seems to have become the
age of the 'common man.' We say
with pride in this country that
'all men are created equal,' then
we seem to go through life try-
ing to keep them that way," he
"Emphasis is on mediocrity at
the very time quality is needed,"
The main thing Americans learn
today is "a sense of fear," Newton
continued. As one manifestation of
this "fear," he cited a letter from
125 professors at an eastern uni-
versity, asking the United States
to cease its nuclear testing.
"I believe in God and that he
gave us the A-Bomb first to end
a horrible war, but he didn't con-
template that we would dominate
the world. But neither did God ex-
poect us to bury our talent in the
ground so that others could catch
up orget ahead of us," Newton re-
He said that, to combat these'
trends, colleges should teach:
1) That "rewards go to the in-
dustrious, that the backbone of o,1r
economy is profits and it is profits
that keep the welfare wagons roll-
ing," and that "self-reliance is the
greatest security in the world."
2) That students should vote and,
take part in public affairs.
3) That students should have
"the ability to communicate."
"If each of us strives to be a
living example and articulate
spokesman of these beliefs, then1
the Fourth of July will not be just
another day of 'independence' but
again celebrated as The Day of In-
dependence," Newton concluded.
League To Show
The International Committee of
the Michigan League will present
an International Fashion Show at
7:30 p.m. today/in the Vandenburg
Room of the League. The models

SPINE-TINGLING - A spell-binding, hair-raising classic, George M. Cohan's "The Tavern,"
will be presented at 8:30 p.m. today by the Association of Producing Artists. Continuing through
Sunday, the spoof of old-time melodramas is a boisterous account of a mysterious vagabond, played
by artistic director Ellis Rabb, who appears suddenly one dark night at a country tavern and
comes face to face with a delightful, demented group. Rosemary Harris will play the governor's
daughter, a lisping, tittering girl who has a flirtation with the vagabond. Enid Markey will play
the governor's haughty wife and Russell Gold will portray the villain. Anne Meacham will appear
as "the dark lady" and the pompous governor will be played by Richard Woods.
Panel Notes American Image Abroad
By KENNETH WINTER
The University's recurrent con-
troversies over academic freedom
in Ann Arbor can't hold a candle
to the problems of southern
schools, as cited in the October
issue of Harper's Magazine.
An article by Prof. C. Vann
Woodward of Yale University, a
native of the South, describes ac-
tions taken against students and
faculty members of 17 southern
colleges for their political activi-
ties in the past few years.
The most dangerous political ac-
tivity, according to, Prof. Wood-
ward's account, is to advocate or
take action for racial integration.
However, he also notes sanc-
tions imposed for opposition to
the House Committee on Vn-
American Activities, membership
in the American Civil Liberties
Union, and the support of "liberal"
or "left-wing" causes in general.
The motivating force behind
most of the actions taken against
students and faculty has been "a
wave of reaction - led by the
White Citizens Councils, the John
Birch Society and the Ku Klux-
ers," Prof. Woodward reports.
He also noted actions initiated
directly by southern governors,
other state officials, and school
Cases cited by Prof. Woodward
1) A history instructor from
West Texas State College at Can-
yon was berated and physically
assaulted in the college president's
office by a member of the school's
board of directors, because the in-
structor had spoken against the
HUAC film, 'Operation Aboli-
tion.' The instructor resigned.
2) A University of Mississippi
Law School professor was pres-
sured into resigning, because he
was an ACLU member and because
he defended the legality of Su-
preme Court decisions.
Within a two-year period over
one-fourth of the Ole Miss faculty
has resigned, and all faculty mem-
bers are required to produce an-
nually a list of the organizations
they have joined or supported.
3) Following the 1960 sit-ins
in Montgomery, Alabama State
College, a Negro school, exper-
ienced a wave of reprisals. Nine
students were expelled, 20 were
suspended, one professor was fired
and 17 faculty members resigned.
The faculty resignation was
triggered by Gov. John Patterson,
who went on television to label
the professor "a communist sym-

pathizer and racial agitator" and
demand his dismissal.
Following these incidents, Ala-
bama (followed by Tennessee,
Georgia and Louisiana) has in-
struced its state colleges to "dis-
miss promptly any student . .
arrested and convicted on charges
involving personal misconduct."
Prof. Woodward goes on to note
that "the present revival of Mc-
Carthyism is by no means con-
fined to the South."
Summing up, Prof. Woodward
writes "the colleges have felt the
wrath of the resistance to the
(integration) movement because
and the fury of the 'Radical
Right,' because they have some-
times furnished enlightened oppo-
sition to the reactionaries."
"Freedom to think, to teach and
to learn are a standing threat to
the program of those who lead the
assault on academic freedom," he
Considering solutions to the
problem, Prof. Woodward reports
that the American Association of
University Professors, helped by
some Federal court decisions, has
been the main fighter for aca-
demic freedom so far.
He says that the best solution
is "an aroused public opinion in-
formed by exposure of outrages

"The American abroad is his
own worst ambassador," Georgina
Iwanowski, Grad., said yesterday
during a panel discussion of "The
American Image Abroad."
The discussion, one of a series of
events commemorating Interna-
tional Week, was moderated by
Prof. Martin Needler of the po-
litical science department. Other
members of the panel were Jorge
Garcia-Gouza, Grad., and David
Miss Iwanowski noted that the
preconceived ideas most people
hold about the American image
abroad are not necessarily those
which prevail. The popular image
of Americans abroad is gained by
European contact with tourists
The tourist goes to Europe
mainly because he can afford it;
he is interested only in flying from
one place to another, spending
three hours or so in each major
tourist attraction and gaining

International strategies and At-
lantic Union were reviewed last
week in the third of five sessions1
dealing with "Atlantic Union, To
What Purpose, In What Form."
Prof. Robert C. Angell of the
sociology department warned that
Atlantic Union might harden Rus-
sia attitudes and drive the So-
viets to a closer alliance with the
He declared that the West
should remain strong, but not at
the same time appear to be threat-
ening the Russians.
In the long run, Prof. Angell
continued, the two blocks will have
to learn to live with each other
and some sort of "super-society"
will develop. This may take the
form of international law.
Into Soviet Hands
Jacques Bude, Grad, warned that
Atlantic Union would drive the
underdeveloped nations into the
hands of the Soviets. He explain-
ed that these nations play the
short-range interests of Europe
against the long-range interests of
the United States.
"The Congo would be in Russian
hands had there been Atlantic Un-
ion. The United States recognized
that Europe only saw short-range
interests and pressured Europe in
long-range terms," Bude explained.
He declared it would be better
if the underdeveloped nations had
Europe and the United States com-
peting rather than the West and
the Communist bloc.
Prof. Robert L. Nicholson of the
University of Illinois, favoring At-
lantic unity, said that a federa-
tion could result in $30-5O billion
savings within 10 years. This mon-
ey could be used to help provide
the $40 billion worth of capital
needed by underdeveloped nations
This aid, he added, would keep
the neutrals from joining the So-
supposition that many Americans
find it more prudent to cover up
their true colors because "Amer-
icans get charged more."
Cantrell pointed out that many
Americans hold the belief that
Europe's economic existence de-
pends upon the American dollar,
and therefore expect due consider-
ation. Miss Iwanowski attacked
this idea as "erroneous," saying
that while abroad, Americans
should be people first and a na-
Garcia-Bouza argued that tour-
ists are always tourists, no matter
what their particular nationality
may be. He went on to define a
tourist as "one who, when arriv-
ing in a new town, complains that
there are too many tourists there."
The image of Americans and of
America are actually two separate
entities, Garcia-Bouza noted. He
said that even if one does not ac-
tually meet Americans, it is im-
possible to escape the "pervading
influence" of the American way
Furthermore, he explained, for-
eigners' attitudes toward America
often change upon visiting Amer-
ica themselves. Many of them re-
main here for study or research
programs; it is these individuals,
Garcia-Bouza concluded, who are
truly our best ambassadors abroad.
