Dean Ivan C. Crawford, of the
engineering college, said that he
upheld the action taken by Presi-
dent Ruthven in banning MYDA,
declaring that "he (President
Ruthven) examines all evidence
carefully and is not prone to snap
A statement issued by Dean
Russel-A. Stevenson, of the busi-
ness administration school,
called the banning of MYDA an
"entirely appropriate 'action.
The question of academic free-
dom is not involved in any way."
He asserted that he had seen "no
effort on the part of faculty or
students to prevent free discus-
sion," but disapproves of any
organizatin with "outside con-
Prof. Grover C. Grismore, of the
law school, declared in a state-
ment that "I see no threat to aca-
demic freedom in this move. As-
suming the facts on which the ac-
tion was predicted to be as ex-
pressed, the action is justified."
Upholding a different stand,
Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of the
history department, said: "As an
individual and as a member of the
Committee on Academic Freedom
I wish to enter a protest against
any ban on a student organization
merely because of Communist af-
filiation or activity. To suppress
what we do not approve is the
Russian way. To subject it to the
sunlight and fresh air of open dis-
cussion is the American way. I pre-
fer the American way."
Dubbing the MYDA banning
"unnecessary," Prof. Louis C. Kar-
pinski, of the mathematics depart-
iment, gave the following state-
"During the time that the or-
ganization has been on campus I
have attended a number of its
meetings. I find it difficult to be-
lieve that there are any avowed
Communists in the group, but I
would almost regret it if there
were none in so large a group of

students as there are at Michigan.
The action seems to be quite un-
necessary. It is part of a current
hysteria, and the University should
be the last place to yield to such

He explained that William Cook

and that "he assumed law stu-

Pointing out that William Cook
required the University to furnish
free hot water, power, heat and
light to the club, Prof. Grismore
declared that this was "his way of
forcing the State of Michigan to
subsidize legal education."
At one point, having answered
several intricate questions involv-

Letter Reveals
Class Rivalry
Of Olden Days
The small classes of '75 and '76.
at Michigan were rah-rah in the
Spartan sense of the term, accord-
ing to letters recently received by
the Michigan Historical Collec-
tions from the Kalamazoo Mus-
Their lusty skirmishes over
class emblems and their knack for
practical jokes are described by
Albert J. Volland, '76, in a letter
to his sweetheart written in May.
Sophomore Emblem Used
"We freshmen were on the steps
of the medical building about to
have our picture taken," it reads,
"and had put a pump, the em-
blem of the sophomores, in front
of us, thinking that our nearness
to promotion entitled us to it."
That the sophomores would not
agree with this notion was in-
evitable, however. Seeing the
picture about to be taken, a group
of sophs rushed over and started
a tussle.
Fr.eshman's Bluff Wins
Luring the sophs away from the
scene by a little first-class bluff-
ing, one freshman enabled his
fellows to get a picture of them-
selves with the emblem, which had
been modified to fit the occasion
by the newly-painted numerals of
the class of '76.
This was too muchfor the
sophomores, They grabbed the
pomp and ran off across the
campus, the frosh giving chase in
a half-hour session which ended
with the latter again coming out
on top; they got the pump and
put it back in its original place.
Chapel Seats Oiled
About then the fight started.
That the night the sophs, by way
of revenge, painted the frosh seats
in the chapel with linseed oil.
But they hoped for an unpleas-
ant surprise which never came.
Somehow the school painter found
out about the deal and had the
seats scrubbed before the next
morning's chapel.
