t Board Believes That M i s t a k e
Was Made In Naming
New President
DES MOINES, Iowa, May 13.-
().-A court order today reopened
Des Moines University, Baptist
fundamentalist institution, after it
had been closed indefinitely Satur-
day night by the trustees.
The district court granted an in-
junction on application of six stu-
dents against the action of the!
board of trustees which resulted
from a student bombardment with
cggs and stones of the administra-
ion building as a protest against
ousting by the board of the entire
faculty, including President Harry
C. Wayman.
Although classes proceeded in an i
orderly fashion today, the students
ministerial association, including
several ordaineOi Baptist ministers,
adopted a resolution protesting the
'domineering attitude" of Dr. '. T.
Shields, president of the board. "We
advise all Baptist union churches,"1
the resolution said, "to withhold
support from the present board
until Dr. T. T. Shields and Miss
Edith Rebman resign or are re-
moved from office."
Dr. Shields Cleared
Meanwhile at his home in Toron-
to, Dr. Shields, who was cleared
Saturday of rumors of indiscretions
involving-himself and Miss Rebman,
the board secretary today said that
marks received by students attend-
Ing classes against the board's or-i
der would not be recognized.
Dr. Shields wi prc:;id 'morrow,
at the annual meeting of the Bap-
List Bible Union of North America
at Buffalo, N. Y., at which a future
course of action toward the univer-
sity probably will be decided. Miss
Rebman, after remaining in her
hotel throughout the day, planned
to leave for Buffalo to act as sec-
retary of the convention.
The resolution of the ministerial
students, said by them to represent
"fundamentalist churches from
California to Vermont," asserted
that "the issue of Des Moines Uni-
versity is not a fundamentalist-
modernist controversy, but is a per-
sonal issue between the president of
the board of trustees, Dr. Shields,
the secretary-treasurer, Miss Reb-
man, and the present administra-
tion under Dr. Wayman."
Other Issues Involved
.Also the issue involved a grow-1
ing bitter international feeling in
view of the attitude of Dr. Shields
and Miss Rebman against patriotic
Ainerican demonstrations on the
campus," the document said. Both
Shields and Miss Rebman, as well
as some students and faculty mem-
bers, are natives of Canada.
The cause of the student uprising
Saturday was said in the resolution
to lies in the fact that "the board
of trustees allowed Dr. Shields to
summarily dismiss the entire facul-
ty without receiving any report or
recommendation whatsoever from
the administration, knowing that
this act Would surely jeopardize the.
credits of the students and would

drive the faculty and student body
TORONTO, Ont., May 13.-The
Rev. Dr. T. T. Shields, chairman of
the board of trustees of the Des
Moines University, today said that1
Dr. H. C. Waymah who was deposed
Saturday as president of the insti-
tution, had shown "absolute lack of
discipline and control in adminis-
tering the affairs of the university."
In a telephone conversation with
the Buffalo Evening News Dr.
Shields said the selection of Dr.
Wayman as president "was the
greatest mistake the university had
ever made."

Acting Dean Wahr Changes
Policy of Closing All Remain-
ing Parties
Fraternity dance permissions for
the coming week-end are being
granted by Fred B. Wahr, acting
dean of students, following a
change, of heart due to improved'
conditions last Friday and Satur-
day. Rumors on the campus that'
no party permissions would be
granted for the rest of the year
were spiked yesterday afternoon by
this announcement from the dean's
A flare-up of drunkenness two
and three week-ends ago, accom- I
panied by several police arrests
and the closing of one party by the
chaperones, is believed to have'
caused Dean Wahr to hesitate be-'
fore granting further permissions.
Last week-end, however, he look-"
ed in on several dances from the
outside and visited the popular
eating places without discovering
any signs of a flare-up compar-
able to that of previous week-ends.;
As a precautionary measure he'
has announced to fraternity houses
planning dances this Friday and
Saturday that during the course
of the evening he will probably be
present in person on the dance
floors to take official cognizance of
any public drunkenness.
No permissions will be granted
after this week-end, Wahr said, due
to the approach of examinations
which start May 31. No objection,
however, will be made to fratern-
ity dances and houseparties the
