Unlikely that Reds Will Be
Barred from Ballot -- Dorr
HIGHLIGHTS ON THE CAMPUS
By HARRIET FRIEDMAN
and NAOMI STERN
Federal action removing the
Communist Party from the ballot
was called "unlikely" by Prof.
Harold M. Dorr, of the political
science department in an inter-
Commenting on Secretary of
Labor Schwellenbach's demand
that Communists be barred from
the ballot, Prof. Dorr said that
restriction of party access to the
ballot will more probably come
from the states, which are per-
mitted under the constitution to
determine voting qualifications.
Typical of action which may be
taken by the states to bar Com-
munist Party candidates is a pro-
posal recently introduced in the
Michigan legislature. At present
in this state a party desiring to
place candidates on the ballot
must obtain the signatures of a
minimum of 100 residents in at
least 10 counties with not more
Chief To Give
Talk on China
The connection between lan-
guage reform and the nationalist
movement in China will be dis-
cussed by John De Francis, form-
er chief of the China Political
Section in the Office of Strategic
Services, in a lecture at 4:15 p.m.
Tuesday in Rackham Amphithea-
The talk, entitled "The Politi-
cal Controversy Over Language
Reform in China", is being spon-
sored by the Department of Or-
iental Languages and Literature.
Francis lived and traveled in
China, Korea and Japan from
1933 to 1936. At the beginning
of the war he taught classes in
Chinese and Japanese at Colum-
bia and Yale, and then held var-
ious positions with the China Po-
litical Section of OSS. Now en-
gaged in graduate work at Colum-
bia University, Francis formerly
taught summer school classes at

than 35 per cent of the total com-
ing from one county.
The proposed change, by requir-
ing that signatures be spread over
a greater number of counties, in-
cluding strictly rural areas where
Communist membership is un-
likely, would make listing of th
Communist Party on the ballot
more difficult, Prof. Dorr said.
Although the powers of the fed-
eral government are not wide
enough to warrant ballot restric-
tions, he said, "the influence of
Communists in labor unions may
be greatly reduced through gov-
ernment use of 'indirect sanc-

procedure, Prof. Dorr cited the
practice of the Secc'rities Ex-
change Commission which may
threaten to call public attention
to "off-color" security practices,
thus avoiding approval of legal,
but questionable acts.
"The National Labor Relations
Board might find similar methods
for taking action against red-
tinged unions," Prof. Dorr said.
adding that privileges mlight bc
curtailed to such unions as prior-
ities were refused during the war
to firms suspected of misuse of re-

could influence union policies to
the detriment of the red fringe
without the need of Congressional
If the national government in-
tends to bar the Communist Party
from the ballot, it will have to
overcome Constitutional barriers,
Prof. Dorr concluded, adding, "It
will be interesting to see what
Schwellenbach can cook up."
