billiard Cites Curbing of Free Speech




page editor of The St: Louis Post-
Dispatch, said yesterday.
"The situation which has placed
at least 36 persons now in prison
or on the way is especially alarm-
ing because people do not object
to the cases or are not even aware
of them," he said at a lecture
sponsored by the journalism de-
Dangerous State
This wholesale lack of public
awareness has permitted the de-
velopment of a state of affairs
"even more dangerous than the
McCarthy era."
Among those now serving terms
in federal prisons as a result of
refusing to divulge information
rather than weaken the constitu-
tionalrguarantee of free speech,
Dilliard named two educators
formerly associated with the Uni-
versity: Warren Barrenblatt and
H. Chandler Davis.
Appearing before the House Un-
American Activities Committee in
1954, Barrenblatt, a psychology
teaching fellow at the University
before joining the faculty as Vas-
sar College, submitted as his testi-
mony reasons why he need not
Questions Irrelevant
He declared that the commit-
tee's questions to him were ir-
relevant and that the hearings
violated the First Amendment by
constituting virtual "legislative
trials," Dilliard explained.
Consequently, Barrenblatt was
sentenced for contempt of Con-
gress, and his sentence was up-
held by a 1959 Supreme Court
decision. The Court's majority
opinion stated the authority of
the Un-American Activities Com-
mittee was "unassailable" and the
balance between the individual
and the government needed to be
adjusted in favor of the govern-
H. Chandler Davis, while an
instructor in mathematics at the
University in 1954, refused to an-
swer questions to the Un-Ameri-
can Activities Committee concern-
ing Communist activities at Har-
vard University when he was a
student there.
Three months later Davis was
indicted by a federal grand jury
(and dismissed the next day by
the University). He is now serving
a prison term in Danbury, Conn.
In a third case cited by Dillard,
Dr. Willard Uphouse, a Methodist
teacher of religious education, was
jailed last December for refusing
to submit to investigating authori-

To Organize
An all-campus planning meet-
ing for the Challenge program on
the University campus will be held
at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in the small
ballroom of the Union, Hugh Wite-
meyer, '61, one of the organizers
of Challenge on a local basis, an-


ties the list of guests at his re-
ligious camp in New Hampshire.
No Evidence
"There was no evidence that ac-
tivities at the camp were unlawful,
but Uphouse declined to furnish
the list of guests because he be-
lieved it would hurt the constitu-
tional rights of free speech and
assembly," Dilliard said.
A 1959 United States Supreme
Court decision upheld the con-
tempt of court charge made
against Uphouse by the New
Hampshire Supreme Court, and he
was jailed soon thereafter,
Lab Playbill
To Produce
New Dramas
Two original one-act plays
written by University students will
be presented on the speech de-
partment's Laboratory Playbill at
4:10 p.m. today in Trueblood
Auditorium at the Frieze Building.
The plays by Shannon King,
Grad., and Donna Eichenlaub, '60,
were prepared for Prof. Kenneth
Rowe's English 127 class in play-
Miss Eichenlaub's passion play,
"The Good Cross," is particularly
timely for the Lenten season as
it is concerned with "the emo-
tional experiences of the man who
made the cross of Jesus. The play
has its setting in the home of the
carpenter, Jeremiah, and is devel-
oped around his reactions to the
growing awareness of his deed
during the day of the Crucifixion."
Jeremiah's realization of guilt
is marked "by an "element of
strangeness" since his grandson,
David, who witnesses and tells
of the Crucifixion, had been cured
.by Jesus only a year before.
The second play on this after-
noon's playbill, "The Window," by
Shannon King, is set in a prison
cell. It is a violent play concerned
with mental disorder, lust and
In this play, Miss King offers a
character sketch of "two men who
have been cell mates for a long
period of time and who have de-
sirously watched the warden's
daughter from their window for
a number of years.
"Their response to the presence
of this woman beyond 'The Win-
dow' draws to a climax as the
release of one of the inmates
draws near." The other prisoner is
serving a life term.
The resulting conflict stimulates
an Inevitable destruction for the
two men.

Study Says
'U' Students
Walk Most,
Students walk more than any
other Ann Arbor citizen-type, a
current traffic study indicates.g
The study, to continue through
July, is to be a framework for
state and city planning engineers
in projecting future improvements
of local streets and highways.
Students generally walk rather
than drive, and remain within a
limited area, according to Mrs.
Helen Leary, who is attempting to
interview 2,000 of them.
Increase Noted
"Michigras has been increasing
the number of automobile trips,
and widening the geographic area
in which students travel," she
Mrs. Leary is the lone student-
interviewer of 15 workers in the
area. The others are interviewing
residents in the rest of the Ann
Arbor - Ypsilanti metropolitan
The program, designed by the
United States Bureau of Public
Roads, is investigating all move-
ments of vehicles to and through
the area, as well as traffic flow on
streets within the cities.
City officials and the highway
department "are depending on
this data for use in planning
better street facilities, better
traffic management, and better
trunkline service," Milton Lamb,
highway department traffic tech-
nician, believes.
Canvassers are checking all
main roads entering the area,
collecting data regarding trips
having origins or destinations out-
side of it. Drivers are asked where
their trips started, where they will
end, all routes followed and the
'stops made within the city.
To Check Homes
To sample the individual popu-
lation, interviewers will check
every twelfth home in Ann Arbor,
and every eighth home in the
Ypsilanti area. Rural areas will
also be covered.
The interviewer will find what
trips were made by every member
of a household on the day pre-
ceding the interview.
City Council acted several weeks
ago to participate in the study and
to provide necessary funds. Seven-
ty per cent of the total cost is
borne by the federal government.
League Sets
The League's annual spring
program "Wediquette" will be held
at 7 p.m. today in the League
Local merchants will display
their specialties to help prospective
brides, guests and "hopefuls."

summer fashions, including the
wardrobe of a bridal party, will

"struggle of civilizations" with
Russia, Donald K. David, vice-
chairman of the Ford Foundation
Board of Trustees, said yesterday.
David delivered the third an-
nual Business Leadership Lecture
to the Business Administration
"Too much of our thinking
about economic development
abroad is a prisoner of the ex-
perience gained in postwar Eu-
David said that too often we
overlooked the fact that in Eu-
rope we were dealing with a high-
ly developed industrialized soci-
ety. Our prime role was to provide
the capital and goods which could

However the present situation
in Africa, Asia, the Middle East
and most of Latin America; Is
much different, he said.
In these areas money and capi-
tal equipment are not the im-
portant factor. More urgently
they need administrators, organ-
izers, managers, entrepreneurs.
From the standpoint of business
administration, "just as we must
endow our own students with the
capacities for making decisions in
a changing environment, so we
must endow those from abroad
with capacities for organizing and
building enterprises in an en-
vironment which is both changing
and different.

If thoughts of financial planning
leave you feeling this way, you
should do something about it now.
You may be surprised how little
money you need to begin your
lifetime financial program. Life
insurance is the perfect founda-
tion because it offers protection
and savings features.
