Boston Priest
Calls Punishment
'Invalid, Brutal'
BOSTON - (P) - A 52-year-old
Jesuit priest, who declared he had
been stripped of his priestly pow-
ers for contending there is no sal-'
vation outside the Roman Catho-
lic Church, today denounced his
punishment by Archbishop Rich-
ard J. Cushing as "brutal" and
Archbishop Cushing said he had
barred the Rev. Leonard Feeney,
S.J., from the altar for "grave
offenses against the general laws
of the Catholic Church."
* * *
BUT FATHER Feeney said,
"the reason I am being silenced
is because I believe there is no
salvation outside the Catholic
Church and without personal sub-
mission to our Holy Father, the
Pope, and Archbishop Cushing be-
lieves there is . .. I believe the
present silencing of me is totally
The invoking of one of the
gravest punishments of the
Catholic Church was the newest
development in a week - old
"heresy" controversy which has
stirrred the large Catholic pop-
ulation in this city.
The heresy charge first was lev-
eled against Boston College, noted
religious school, by three instruc-
tors there and another at Boston
College High School.
* * *
THE FOUR lost their teaching
positions, they claimed, because,
they contended Boston College
was preaching the "heresy" that
persons outside the Catholic faith
can attain salvation after death.
Father Feeney; an educator and
author whose works include the
popular "Fish on Friday," now
is spiritual adviser for a nine-
year-old lay organization for stu-
dents-St. Benedict's Center, near
Harvard University in Cambridge.
He said he had been ordered from
the diocese seven months ago.

On Dismissals
Says Professors
Held Narrow views
"Professors are usually fired be-
cause they are too liberal but Bos-
ton College dismissed four faculty
members because of their ultra-
narrow views," Father Frank J.
McPhillips, pastor of St. Mary's
Chapel said yesterday.
The fo,4r who accused the col-
lege of "heresy" because it was
teaching that persons outside the
Catholic faith could attain salva-
tion after death, held a very nar-
row view, Father McPhillips said.
words into the church's iouth
that it does not teach."
Father McPhillips was dis-
turbed over the misunderstand-
ing that the Boston College was
teaching the "intolerant atti-

tude" presented by the dismissed
faculty members in their charge
that the school was heretical.
(One student called The Daily
to get straightened out on the
meaning of the Associated Press
story about the firings that ap-
peared yesterday.)
* * *
THE MEN WHO were dismissed
probably think they are martyrs,
Father McPhillips said. He pointed
out that none of the four are the-
In its official catechism the
Catholic Church says this on the
question of who can attain sal-
"He who knows the church
to be the true church and re-
mains out of it can not be saved.
This applies to men of bad faith
who sin against the truth; it
does not apply to men of good
faith that belongs to the soul
of the church."
One of the four, Fakhri Maluf,
is a former University student.
Father McPhillips said he is a Sy-
rian who was converted during his
stay at the University.

Engine Open House
To Hit 'U'_Friday
Displays Will Feature Ship Models,
Rocket Motor, Miniature Railroads
University students will have a chance to see a ram jet engine,
the power unit of the famed German "Buzz Bomb," U.S. submarine
models and scores of other technical exhibits when the Engineering
School throws open its doors for its bi-annual open house this Friday.
More than 125 proud slip-stitch pushers have been working for
months on the affair which promises to rival the last open house
held in 1947 which attracted thousands of spectators.
Beside members of the University community, the engineers will
play host to additional thousands of high school students who will be
in town for "University Day."

SOME 250 exhibits, worth millions of dollars will be ready for the
visitors. Twelve engineering departments, plus the local NROTC and

C hafee Cites
In jusice in
Equioty Cases
By insisting on unreasonably
high standards of conduct, "equity
judges turn morality into cruelty
and even into obsurdity," accord-
ing to Prof. Zechariah Chafee of
the Harvard Law School.
Continuing the subject "Going
into Equity with Unclean Hands"
in yesterday's Cooley law lecture,
Prof. Chafee used dramatic copy-
right and matrimonial cases to il-
lustrate how a narrow view of
morality can lead to gross injus-
tice in court decisions.
* * *
"IN (MARRIAGE cases, judges
have an especially strong duty to
look at the total situation and not
let the result turn on the ethical
behavior of a single individual,"
the Cooley lecturer said.
Unethical behavior on the
part of one of the partners of a
marriage sometimes leads courts
to annul marriages though there
is good reason to believe that
the marriage might succeed.
Such judicial action leads to an
excessive amount of "drifting"
into and out of marriage.
"Marriage is not something to
drift into and out of like a sa-
loon," Prof. Chafee declared.
IN OTHER CASES, divorce is
often refused if both the plaintiff
and defendant have been guilty of
violating the marriage vows, on
the grounds that the granting of a
divorce would show a tacit ap-
proval of past errors.
Commenting on these cases,
the Harvard professor said "Ju-
dicial unwillingness to condone
past sins is likely to be vondu-
cive to more serious future sins."
The Cooley lectures will con-
tinue the- discussion of "Some
Problems of Equity" at 4:15 p.m.
today in Hutchins Hall. "Repre-
sentative Spits" will provide Prof.
Chafee with ammunition for to-
day's talk.
Barbour' Gal
Bangs Head
Marilyn Weihe, '49, really
knocked herself out yesterday.
Miss Weihe, who lives in Betsy
Barbour House, was hurrying to
wake up a friend before her first
class. In the process, she banged
her head on the door and went
down for the ten count. Despite
two egg shaped lumps on her fore-
head, would-be doctors in Bar-
bour predict a speedy recovery.
A speech major, Miss Weihe has
been working with sound effects
and claims that her last thought
before she blacked out was wheth-
er her fall would be loud enough to
be heard on the air.
Her friends claim that Miss
Weihe is rather proud of her feat,
and lifts up her hair to show off
the bumps to anyone who will

The affair will get full press cov-
erage from a corps of photogra-
phers from a Detroit newspaper
which plans to do a special feature
on the open house. The Technic
will also feature a complete cover
of the event in a special edition
which is to be distributed Thurs-
day and Friday.
Wally Dublonica is general
chairman of the event. He was as-
sisted by co-chairmen George
Wolf and Stan Saulson.

In First


of Balloting


CAMPUS ELECTION-Students discovered yesterday that bluebooks were not the only things that
called for serious mental effort. In record numbers they jammed polling booths, such as this one
on the Diag, to pick Student Legislature members, class officers and decide the fate of a dozen
campus issues by referendum. This scene will be repeated today with a completely new all-star
cast-those students who failed to vote yesterday because booths were "too crowded."

Stockwell Hall Fire Drill

"My hair's a mess!"

AT LAST, the "all-safe" whistle

Eusian Drive to
Aim at Seniors
Sale Will Be Held
Today and Tomorrow
The 'Ensian sales force will set
its sights on the 600 out of 3434
photographed seniors who have
not yet purchased the yearbook,
during its open campus sale which
will be held today and tomorrow.
Sales booths will be set up on
the Diag and near the Engineer-
ing Arch, where from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. orders will be taken for the
remaining 500 yearbooks.
Since more than half of the
campus will have their pictures in
the yearbook this year, there is
bound to be a last minute rush
to buy the book after its official
distribution," Jeannie Johnson,
head of the student index pointed
"We wish to avoid a rush this
year, so we have put the extra
copies on sale before distribution,"
she explained.
The price of the 'Ensian is still
fixed at $6.

Lost Political
Power - Tunis
Displaced By Radio
The far-reaching political in-
fluence of American newspapers
ended with the great depression
and the return of a Democratic
administration, according to Prof.
Harold A. Innis, chairman of po,
litical economy at the University
of Toronto.
* * *
PROF. INNIS, who delivered his
second lecture on communications
yesterday at the Rackham Amphi-
theatre, reiterated his theory that
radio has replaced newspapers as
a political instrument.
"The implications of radio are
not yet discernible," he said,
"but radio seems to lead to
planning, bureaucracy and so-

He remarked that radio has a
"monopoly over time," whereas
newspapers have only a "monop-
oly over space."
PROF. INNIS does not share the
opinion of some experts that there
is a tendency toward one-news-
paper towns.- Instead, he thinks
that Americans will continue to
favor variety and competition
among newspapers.
The speaker traced the develop-
ment of newspapers and news-
gathering agencies from colonial
times to the present.
