Highest Court
Will Receive
Eisler's Case
Thomas Group
Ruling Assured
preme Court ruling on the ques-
tion whether the House Commit-
tee on Un-American activities
overstepped the bounds of. consti-
tutionality in its drive against
Communists was virtually assured
The high tribunal agreed to con-
sider an appeal from Gerhard Eis-
ler, alleged "No. 1 Communist" in
the United States. He was con-
victed of contempt of Congress
and sentenced to jail for alleged
failure to answer questions about
his Communist connections.
* * *
THE COURT ALSO agreed to
review another major case involv-
ing the constitutionality of the
Taft-Hartley law's requirement
that union officers must file non-
Communist affidavidts if they
wish to use the facilities of the
National Labor Relations Board.
The court refused for the time
being to hear from John How-
ard Lawson, yesterday, Holly-
wood writer convicted of a con-
tempt for refusal to tell the
committee whether he ever had
been a Communist, but left the
door of appeal open for him
It kept on its pending list a re-
newed petition from 11 leaders of
the joint anti-Fascist refugee
committee records subpoenaed by
the House group. The 11 had been
denied a review last June.
* *.*
THE EISLER, Lawson and anti-
Fascist committee cases involve
parallel attacks on the whole con-
stitutional basis of the Un-Ameri-
can Activities committee's proce-
dure. The Lawson and Eisler
cases both involve much the same
issue-whether the committee can
compel witnesses to answer ques-
tions about Communist connec-
Thus the effect of today's otr-
ders is to pick the Eisler case for
a ruling which may effectively
dispose of the others.t
Eisler was described by the TUn-
American Activities committee as
the "United States' No. 1 Commu-
nist" and as the man who passed
on Moscow orders to the party in
this country. He was called up by
the committee in February 1947.
His appearance ended in an up-
roar and he drew a sentence of a
year in jail and a fine of $1,000 in
U. S. District Court here.

New Counseling
Plan Announced
Upper Class Students To Be Guided
By Advisory Board Next Semester
A revised system of upper-class counseling, designed to imple-
ment the new curriculum and ease pre-registration strain on both
students and advisers has been announced by Dean Charles H. Peake
of the Literary College.
In place of the procedure now being followed, the new system,
which will go into effect next semester, provides for establishment of
a board of upper division advisers representing each department.
MEMBERS WILL BE responsible for all upper class advising in
the Literary College.

Violist To Give
First Faculty
Concert Today
The first faculty concert of the
semester will present violist Paul
Doktor, at 8:30 p.m. today in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Doktor, who joined the Univer-
sity music school faculty this fall
as lecturer in viola and chamber
music, was born in Vienna. After
training by his father, he was
awarded the diploma of the Vien-
nese State Academy of Music
while still in his teens.
Since 1936, he has appeared in
sonata recitals and as solo violist
and violinist with orchestra in
Austria, Switzerland, England, and
America. 1948 appearances include
concerts in the Library of Congress
'and the festivals at Tanglewood.
Compositions by Pietro Locatelli,
Franz Schubert, Josef Haessig, and
Johannes Brahms make-up the
program which is open to the
general public.
Marian Owen will accompany

pointments with their adviser dur-
ing regular hours specifically set
aside for advisory purposes. The
meeting between student and ad-
viser will take place during the
term, and not immediately before
This way, Dean Peake said,
the adviser will be able to give
unhurried advice about course
content and consider the stu-
dent's educational aims. If nec-
essary, more than one confer-
ence will be arranged.
Another important advantage of
the new system stressed by Dean
Peake, is the fact that election
cards will be filled out before reg-
istration and tabulated by the tab-
ulating service of the University.
IN THIS WAY the college will
know the number of students wish-
ing to elect a course, and will
be able to make provision for addi-
tional teaching facilities if neces-
sary. Thus students will have a far
better chance of getting the
courses they want, Dean Peake ex-
Advisers will be brought to-
gether for interchange of in-
formation about courses in de-
partments other than their own.
This will benefit students under
both the regular and new curric-
ulums, Dean Peake said.
Students who are not sure what
adviser to contact will have a cen-
tral office to which they may
come. In addition, the system will
assure uniform observation of
curriculum regulations.

PARIS - (/P) - The political
committee of the United Nations
Assembly has formally condemned
Albania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia
for aiding Greek guerrillas and vi-
olating the UN charter.
The condemnation was backed
by 47 of the 58 committee mem-
bers. It was the strongest action
so far by any UN body against
the three Soviet satellites. Russia
and other members of the Soviet
bloc refused to vote.
* * *
THE COMMITTEE'S action was
on one crucial paragraph of a
resolution put up by the United
States, France, Britain and China.
The entire resolution still must bE
voted on today, but its passage was
forecast by yesterday's ballot.
Bitter words flew in the noisy
committee meeting where the
chairman, Premier Paul-Henri
Spaak of Belgium, angrily ac-
cused the Soviet bloc of "syste-
matically sabotaging" the Bal-
kans debate.
Spaak lost his patience at the
repeated moves of Yugoslav dele-
gate Ales Bebler, Polish delegate
Juliusz Katz-Suchy and other
Slav representatives to fight the
four-power resolution at every
HE CHARGED Bebler was abus-
ing his privileges in the commit-
tee and frequently appealed to the
Yugoslav to be considerate.
Bebler and Katz-Suchy lost
two attempts to get a vote of
censure against the UN special
committee on the Balkans. They
were voted down 49 to 6 and 50
to 6, with the Soviet bloc voting
alone both times.
After the first vote Bebler arose
at the committee table and cried
"shame." Spaak called him to or-
der immediately.
Elsewhere in the UN the Secur-
ity Council was called to meet to-
morrow on Palestine. Dr. Ralph
Bunche, acting UN mediator, said
in a statement neither he nor his
chief of staff, Brig. Gen. William
E. Riley, had told four Arab
countries their position in Pales-
tine was hopeless. Bunche was
commenting on weekend press re-
ports which quoted American del-
egation sources.
