SEDITION HIGHER UP:
Shepard Tells Cause of Few
Indictments in Present War
Life Savedby Penicillin
WAR TAKES TOLL:
Over 100 Former 'U' Students
Are Dead or Missing in Action
Bec}use most of the people who
have worked against the war effort
are those in high places, there have
been fewer indictments for sedition
during this waf, Prof. John F. She-
pard of the psychology department
Professor Shepard is president of
the Civil Rights Federation, which
has its headquarters in Detroit.
Anti-War Groups High Up
"Civil rights infringements are us-
ually against the down-and-outers,
the radicals, and the Communists,"
he said, "but in this war most of
those groups have fully supported the
country. The people who have done
or said things that are anti-war are
the ones in high places."
"It is like the situation in Ger-
many,, Italy and France a few years
ago, when if the Communists over-
stepped the line of the law slightly,
they paid the full penalty, but if the
Nazis did the same thing, they got
away with it.
U.S. Afraid of Left
"The United States, acting in. a si-
milar manner, seems to be more
afraid of the Left than of the Right,"
Professor Shepard said.
Explaining that our government
has proceeded only with great hesi-
tation against the Rightests, he said
that "if in the las war a oirion1ist
paper had said an ing oetel
as anti-war as (Lt Chiao Tibun
is doing in this cohe bnpae would
have been sUSpended anld helak
As an example Professor Shepa]d
pointed to the fact that known Bhnd
and the Christian Front remined
at large, while Earl Bfowder Va
jailed on a small technical or.
Before the war the Civil Rights
Federation published a pamphlet,
"Smash Detroit's Fifth Column," an-
alyzing the fascist organiaions in
that city and describing the activi-
ties of Father Coughlin, (ieral-i L . K.
Smith, and the Klan.
Aim of Federation
The aim of the Federation is to
make the public more conscious [
problems involving civil rights.
After the race riots in Detroit they
held a state-wide conference in the
interests of racial unity. One of their
projects for this Spring is a sx-week
symposium with an outside speaker1
discussing the race problem each
The Federation is affiliated with
the National Federation for Consti-
tutional Liberties and formerly was1
known as the Conference for Pro-
tection of Civil Rights.
