a University fci iu h ireGid h
imp~ort ance of i s meet ing cannot be too
highly stressed, for this proposed organiza-
tion will be the first completely democratic
theatre group on campus.
Many students, interested in the various
aspects of the theatre, have been unable
to find sufficient outlets for this interest
because of the restrictions involving play
production. Most students not enrolledj
in courses in the speech department do
not have the opportunity to affiliate
themselves wiith a production.
The purpose of the guild then is to offer
to these students a mneanis of wvorking in
the theatre. It is stressing interest first avd
training and experience secod.
The organi ers of the guid believe that a
student inten'Isely interested in acting can
often give a gr'ea ter perormiance than the
student whio may hazve several play produe-
tion courses to0 Ihis credit.
'rhis movemem uto (stablish a democratiac
theatre guild is certainly one of the most
wothiwhile proects [.hat students have
sponsored here.
Not only will would be actors be admitted
to the guild, but students interested in
directing, staging, musical background and

It's 0od(d just how singulranal apella-
Lion may be sometimes. Take the name Toy.
for example. Webster's defines the word
among other wvays as a "wild fancy" or an
"odd conceit ."
How could one better describe the edict
issued by Detroit's lpretentious Police Com-
missioner barring from Police feadquar-
ters newspapermen who do not sign non-
Communist affidavits or whose loyalty is
not affirmied by their editors.
When an individual (displays a whim
which affects no one but himself, we merely
laugh. But when Ihis idiosyncrasy openly in-
fringes upon the rights of others. seious
thought, not laughter, is required.
Because of mounting criticism even from
conservative quarters, Toy has backed down
somewhat in his demands on the three ma-
jor Detroit papers, all of which are about as
left wing as the Wall Street Journal. In-
stead of individual pledges, he will now ac-
cept lists of accredited reporters from their
editors who up to now have indicated no
doubts as to the integrity of their employees.
In addition, he will ask that the editors
submit letters stating that to the best of
their knowledge the reporters named are not
Conmmunrists -apparently Vasists and Ku
Klux Klansmnen are quite acceptable.
Toy said that he will accept the word
of these editors because he knows them
personally, but reporters from other paprs
and wire services must still sign individual
pledges because "I do not know the wire
servic'e bureau chiefs or the editors of' the
smaller papers."

Toy's order is a direct blow 'aimed at
freedom of the press, as many have al-
ready asserted, but its implications go fur-
ther yet. The action deprives both employer
and employee of the fundamental demao-
era tic freedom of choice.
Unless the reporters not from the "Big
Thfree'' sign pledges, they will be unable to
gain access toJ police headquarters and
therefiore uunable to fulfill tihe rquit'ennts
of their jobs.
Thus, mianag;ementt can no longer hire
anyone it may ch:ioose, but, only those who,
in effect.,- meet this appov al of Toy by
taking loyalty oath..

One of the most unfortunate results of
get-rid-of-the-Ried purges is than by and
large it is not the Communists who suffer,
but sinei'e. idealistic persons whose prin-
ciples do not allow' themn to answecr quet ions

Their right to hold whatever beliefs they

IIEAR YE --all Progi-c.,sives, Fel-
low - Tr'avelers, Communists,
Conservatives, anrd Reactionaries
--this is a challenge issued by the
Liberals of the campus.
Michael Straight. editor of the
New Republic is to speak on the
campus at Kellogg auditorium
Tuesday evcnin ,. His subject is
"~The Challenge ca1' the Fair Dueal.
,Mr. St raig htit . s a Il'~e liantliio
of time iberal elaust'. l1e has
wrestled squai'ely with the pei'plex-
ing problems of oui' day, and has
succeeded in cutting thr'ough the
usual emotional generalizations
of liberalism to a consistent work-
ing creed fom' Liberals.
The way has now been opened
to the democratic process of rough
and tumble political debate on our'
campus concerning the issues and
principles of the day. As Liberals,
Iwe feel that Mr. Straight's lecture
will be an excellent presentation
of our case. We therefore chal-
lenge our above-mentioned polit-
ical oapponents to appear at Mi'.
Stmaight's lecture, oi' the coffee-
hour and get a good picture of
ou' creed. After that, we shall be
only to~o happy to continue the
debate thr'ough public lectures, de-
bates, on the "Diag," and through
The .Dily.
Such free controversy is one of
the first principles of our liberal
creed;' in the words of Mr. Jus-
tie .Holmes, "The ultimate good
desled is better reached by free
trade in ideas." And in the wor'ds
of John Stuart Mill, "... even
if our opinion be not only true,
but the whole truth; unless it is
suffered to be, and actually is,
vigorously and earnestly contest-
ed, it will, by most of those who
'receive it, be held in the manner
of a prejudice .
The social and economic rev-
olution is on in this country. The
1people are rapidly accepting the
liberal principle which states that
governments do not exist exclu-
sively to protect the arbitrary
rights of the individual; but
rather it is the function of gov-
ernment, through social legisla-
tion, to uphold the human rights
of all men against their abuse by
individuals. The people are turn-
ing to social legislation to lift all
men out of their degrading and
repressive surroundings, and make
If you have your doubts, or dis-
agree with the liberalist ci'eecd,

' jumping off point for a long and

concerning the major'pr'oblems of
our day.

scared because I hear so few voies
raised against this practice.
An attack against academic
freedom and democracy in educa-
lion always preceded and is nece-
sary for any attack on freedom
generally. Such actions are Hit-
lerian in concept because they
stifle further intellectual thought
anid hence, threaten the freedom
of all Americans. The scveral re-
('exnt violations of academic free-
dom cannot be viwd as acciden-
tal or isolated events, but are
closely related in that they are
a direct result of the fear and
hiyster'ia engendered over the com-
munist question.
Today this atmosphere prevents
us from seeing thle mreal threats to
academic freedom and " prevents
us from speaking out when Jim
Zarichny, a student at Michigan
State, is expelled for attending
the wrong kind of a meeting off
campus. How many students and
teachers must be expelled before
we wake uip? Who's going to be
the next victim? No matter how
hard we may try, we cannot ra-
tionalize these actions. Our com-
placency and apathy concerning
this whole question can only en-
courage repetition of such flag-
rant infringements.
-Calvin Llpptt,
To the Editor:
IN REGARD to tie letter pub-
lishedi in The Daily 2-25-49 by
urne Hai'old TI. Walsh, I think it
advisable that some one give Mr.
Walsh a little well needed advice.
"Open your' eyes, you dear child,
and awake to the realization that
you are grown up now. We sinners
have so very much to do in the
great city of Ann Arbor. Let me
see, I believe there are at least
six places where one can pur-
chase a glass of beer and my gosh,
there areU't two whole movies, that,
are acceptable to public taste. "Yes,
Mi'. Walsh, it is ;just terrible to
thinik of poor' little old you getting
a nasty old "D." We sinners feel
terribly sorry for you. Have you
noticed these nasty young coeds
on our campus, Mm. Walsh? Be
careful or' one of them might em-
barrass you by running up to you
and saying, "Boo!" In conclusion,
if you don't like our' habits, there
are many other universities for
you to enroll in. Why don't you
try Vassar?"
-,till Johnson.
To the~ Editor:
*old T. Walsh is not adult
enough to judge how much he can
drink and when he can afford to
cut classes. Most of us are aware
of the possibilities of missing
something when we decide to cut
and are willing to take the con-
