His House counterpart, Rep.
Gilbert E. Bursley (R-Ann Arbor)
split with Thayor and said that he
would not object to a Communist
speaking on theoretical Commun-
ism but was in agreement with
Thayer in being against Com-
munists advocating violent over-
throw of the government on cam-
Both Thayer and Bursley said
that they felt that groups or in-
dividuals other than Communists
who advocate violent overthrow
of the government ought to be
barred from using the facilities of
public universities and colleges to
Influence University
Bursley, commenting on the
ways in which the Legislature as
a body should influence University
speaker policy, said, "I do not
think that the appropriative power
of the Legislature should be used

as a tool for interfering in the
internal affairs of our state uni-
He pointed to the facts that the
University is constitutionally au-
tonomous and that the Regents
are elected.
Thayer, terming the withhold-
ing of funds to influence a uni-
versity policy unthinkable, noted
that the Legislature can, however,
pass resolutions indicating its
views on certain issues in an ad-
visory capacity.
Withholding Funds
Other legislators had fewer
qualms about withholding funds to
influence speaker policy.
Rep. Thomas J. Whinery (R-
Grand Rapids) said that "it is
proper to consider this (speaker
policies) in making apropriations
to the school."
Voicing his views on academic
freedom and freedom of speech,
Whinery said, "In a state-sup-
ported institution higher than the
high school level there should beE
complete freedom of speech and
academic freedom, excepting that
it is not too much to expect the
faculty to be loyal to the United
Montgomery Comments
Rep. George Montgomery (D-
Detroit) commented that "any
university permitting itself to be-
come a sounding board for extreme
views or 'isms' on a regular or
frequent basis and not exercising
care to balance such presentations
by able refutations of fallacies,

ought to stay out of the internal
affairs of higher educational in-
stitutions including those without
constitutional status.
Seeing the only limitation of
freedom of speech and academic
freedom as the limits set by state
and/or federal laws, he answered
that he would object to a Com-
munist speaker advocating vio-
lent overthrow of the government.
Sen. Haskell Nichols! (R-Jack-
son) commented that although he
personally did not agree with al-
lowing Communist speakers to
advocate the violent overthrow of
the government at public univer-
sities, he thought it was a "uni-
versity problem" and the decision
ought to be left to the universities.
Sole Power
"The universities should be the
judge of speakers" he said in
commenting on the Legislature's
role in formulating speaker policy.
On the other hand Rep. Ray-
mond C. Wurzel (R-Port Huron),
was in favor of barring all groups
from a campus which "do not
uphold the ideals of free enter-
prise." Commenting on the role
of the state Legislature in ulli-
versity speaker policy, he said, "i
large majority of the people that
I represent in the State Legislature
agree with me that we should not
allow Communist ideals in our
state-supported institutions.'
He also said he was "completely
shocked" that anyone would ask
"anyone living in the United
States" whether they are in favor

"The international economic
position of the United States is
very strong," Edward M. Bern-
stein, consulting economist from
Washington, D.C., said yesterday.
Addressing 100 economists who
attended the 10th annual Confer-
ence on the Economic Outlook at
the University, Bernstein added
that the development of World
trade and the basic strength of
the United States' economy will
ultimately resolve the American
balance of payments problem.
However the dollar remains un-
der pressure because of the con-
tinuing balance of payments def-
icit which has persisted since 1950.
Serious Mistake
"It would be a serious mistake
for the United States to neglect
its payments difficulties on the
grounds that natural corrective
forces will ultimately restore its
position as the reserve center and
leader of the free world."
Predicting that the balance of
payments deficit will exceed $1.5
billion in 1962, he feels that the
payments deficit is not likely to
be eliminated before 1964.
The solution to the balance of
payments problem, according to
Bernstein must be found in an
environment of expanding world
trade supported by a high level of
economic activity in this country.
Root of Problem
In Bernstein's opinion, the root
of the balance of payments prob-
lem lies in the large United States
expenditures overseas for defense
and economic aid.
However foreign aid will have
to be continued for many years
and therefore the United States
must earn sufficient net foreign
exchange receipts from other

transactions to balance the costs
of these expenditures.
He called for efforts to increase
the export of American goods and
for other nations to assume a
greater share in foreign aid costs
in order to solve this problem.
International Cooperation
Bernstein also urged greater in-
ternational economic .ooperation
in. monetary policies.
Appropriate monetary policies
will enable any nation to put its
balance of payments in order as
trade grows and the barriers to
it are reduced.
Bernstein claimed that the
United States must do this with-
out causing deflation. "We may
confidently hope that its policies
will be directed toward establish-
ing a strong pattern of interna-
tional payments in a prosperous
world economy."
Also discussed at the confer-
ence was the general state of the
United States economy.
The consensus of the partici-
pants is that the coming year will
see a levelling off in the economy
with a small increase in the Gross
National Product but noincrease
in output capacity. The econo-
mists foresee a $569 billion GNP,
an increase of about 2/2 per cent
over the estimated 1962 GNP.

SEATTLE-Dean of Students
Donald K. Anderson of the Uni-
versity of Washington refused to
permit Communist Benjamin Da-
vis to speak on the university cam-
pus in a debate with a member of
the Young Socialists. University
policy specifically forbids the ap-
pearance of representatives or
spokesmen of the Communist
Party. The university chapter of
the American Civil Liberties Un-
ion has denounced the action.

BERKELEY - President Clark
Kerr of the University of Cali-

forces will not restrict freedom
of speech at the university, and
that the regents, not the governor,
will decide on prospective campus

DETROIT -The Student-Fac-
ulty Council of Wayne State Uni-
versity has approved an outside
speaker policy which would permit
Communists or other controversial
speakers to appear if free and open
discussion of his views is part of
the program. The Council further
termed the banning of Communist
speakers an ineffective solution in
halting the spread of Communism

PRAGUE (CPS)-A large num-
ber of student journals and per-
iodicals appearing in Czechoslo-
vakia in the last year and a half
are creating problems for the
Communist regime.
The Czechoslovak Union of
Youth (CSM) said in its daily
publication, the "Mlada fronta,"
that the CSM Council convened
a meeting of student publications
editors "to assure that the papers

munist education of the student

ternoon. Four speakers will address
the group.

The Daily sent out the following questionnaire to all
members of the outgoining Legislature:
1) Would you object if a Communist speaker, an expert in
an academic field such as physics or mathematics, were to
lecture on his academic specialty using the facilities of a
state-supported college or university?
2) Would you object if a Communist were to speak on
theoretical Communism using the facilities of a state-supported
college or university?
3) Would you object if a Communist were to speak at a state-
supported college or university if, during that speech, he ad-
vocated the violent overthrow of the government of the State
of Michigan or the United States?
4) Do you feel that there are non-Communist groups or
individuals whose views are such that their members or these
individuals ought to be barred from advocating their views
at state-supported colleges or universities?
5) If yes, could you specify what groups or types of in-
dividual you have in mind.
6) Do you think it is the duty of a state-supported college
or university to review the speech of every outside speaker
beforehand and remove material that might be considered
subversive or objectionable?
7) Do you feel that Marxism, Socialism, Fascism and
Communism should be taught in the classroom of a state-
supported university or college?
8) Should the works of Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Hitler, as
well as books by other Communist and Fascist politcal theorists,
be allowed in the library of a publicly supported university?
9) If there were a speaker at a state university whose
views you violently opposed, what action would you take?
10) In what ways do you feel that it is proper for the
Legislature to act as a body to exert influence on the speaker
policies at state colleges and universities?

The appropriations power ought
to be "judiciously exercised to
correct university policy when it
strays over a prolonged time and
in an aggravated manner from a
reasonable exercise of its academic
freedom," he said.
Last year, the Legislature passed
a resolution stating that it is
"contrary to the public policy
of the state" for Communists to
speak at state colleges and uni-
Objections to Communists
On past occasions, legislators
have expressed objections to Com-
munists or suspected Communists
speaking on state campuses.
Wayne State University removed
its speaker ban two years ago only
to meet a chorus of protests in-
cluding one from Sen. Elmer R.
Porter (R-Blissfield), chairman of
the appropriations committee.
That year, WSU, budget was
slashed $250,003 although Porter
claimed the reduction had nothing
to do with speaker policy..
Last spring, Sen. John Smeekens
(R-Coldwater) protested to Uni-
versity President Harlan Hatcher
when Carl Braden and Frank
Wilkenson, who had served terms
for contempt of the House Un-;
American Activtities Committee,
were scehduled to speak on cam-
pus. Hatcher refused to bar the
Rep. Robert Waldron(R-Grosse
Pointe), saying that there should
be no limitations on academic
freedom or freedom of speech,
added, "we're just not letting un-
desirables use publicly supported
property. 'Academic freedom' in-
volves the search for truth. A
Communist . . . does not believe
in this and has no place on cam-
pus or on any American faculty."

Setting Standards
One legislator, Rep. Frederick
Yates (D-Detroit), while saying
that speaker policy is the pero-
gative of the individual institu-
tions, also claimed that the Legis-
lature should play a role "in
setting standards for picking of
competent and capable adminis-
He added, "I believe the college
officials are just as patriotic as
legislators. They are better quali-
fied to judge what should be
taught in the college program."
He opposed Communist speakers
only if they advocated violent
overthrow of the government.
Rep. Roger B. Townsend (D-
Flint), proposed that not only
speakers advocating overthrow or
talking about theoretical Commun-
ism be banned, but the Ku Klux
Klan, the American Nazi Party
and the John Birch Society also
be denied the use of university
Various other legislators cited
as objectionable groups ranging
from "fellow travelers" to "those
calling Earl Warren a Communist"
to any group advocating "over-
throw of the present federal sys-
tem of government."
