Vatican Hits
Trial Anew
Charge Outrage
Against Church
VATICAN CITY -- (P) - Pope
Pius XII yesterday attacked the
trial of Josef Cardinal Mindszenty
as rigged and an outrage against
the Roman Catholic church.
He declared that Catholics
should resist man-made laws "in-
consistent with divine and human
IN AN ADDRESS before a se-
cret and Extraordinary Consistory
of the College of Cardinals, the
Pontiff charged that Hungary's
Communist-dominated govern-
ment sought "to disrupt the Cath-
olic Church" there by striking at
Cardinal Mindszenty.
The Pope expressed the belief
that confessions made in. a
Budapest courtroom by Cardi-
nal Mindszenty were wrung
from him. The physical condi-
tion and behavior of thecHun-
garian primate appeared to be
an accusation "against his very
accusers and condemners," the
Pope said.
Speaking in sorrow, Pope Pius
warned that "those who rashly
dare to trample upon the liberty
of the Church and the rights of
human conscience, may at length
understand that no civil society
can endure when religion has been
suppressed and God, as it were,
driven into exile.
Cardinal' Mindszenty was con-
victed last Tuesday on charges of
treason, spying and black market
money dealings. In his address to-
day Pope Pius deplored the "su-
preme indignity" visited on the
Cardinal who was doomed "like a
criminal to life imprisonment."

a market sur'vey to be conducted
by the business staff of The Daily.
Students to be interviewed will
be selected proportionally from
the more important segments of
the campus population-married
or unmarried, affiliated or inde-
pendent, etc.
Among the more important
things the survey is expected to
reveal are: student interests, ac-
tivities, purchasing power, buying
habits, and reading and radio lis-
tening habits.
Because of the completeness of
the survey, and its consequent
length, interviewers have stated
the need for cooperation from
those who are approached.

ADA To Unravel
Local Group Orientation Meeting
To Be Opened by Prof. Slosson
Prof. Preston Slosson and leaders of nine local groups will attempt
to unscramble the campus political alphabet at a meeting of the
Americans for Democratic Action at 7:30 p.m. today in the ABC Rm.
of the Michigan League.
Prof. Slosson will open the Political Orientation Program with a
talk explaining the place and function of campus political groups.
FOLLOWING THIS, a representative from each organization will
explain the basic beliefs, stands, and projects of the respective groups.
"The main campus groups have for some time caused much con-

fusion as to the exact position o

3,000 Mile
Proving Site
Seek New Test
Area for Rockets
strides in the conquest of space
by rockets make it necessary for
the United States to have a 3,000
mile proving ground for launch-
ing such weapons, Congress was
told today.
Cost of providing such a test
area would be $200,000,000.
Military and scientific authori-
ties said that this country will
have rockets this year capable of
traversing 500 miles, and that
eventually their horizontal range
may be extended to 5,060 mules.
THE OFFICIALS testified be-
fore a House Armed Services sub-
comrruttee on the necessity of
creating the broadened test range.
The testimony prompted spec-
ulation that American scientists
have finally surpassed Ger-
many's V-2 effort.
The Army, Navy and Air Force
have been experimenting with
rockets of American design for
many months, but until today's
disclosure there was nothing to in-
dicate they had beaten the V-2.
Asked for comment, an air force
spokesman told a reporter:
"That's classified (secret) in-
formation to say definitely that
we have passed the German hori-
zontal range. But," he added, "it's
not a bad deduction."
THE AIR FORCE expert ex-
plained that the 500-mile range
cited by military witnesses before
Congressrieferred to the hori-
zontal distance. He said the Ger-
man horizontal record, achieved
by a V-2 during World War II,
was 250 miles.
To AMissDraft
After a lengthy "sweating out"
period, campus ROTC students
have been informed that all mem-
bers from both beginning and ad-
vanced sections will be eligible
for deferment, providing they
achieve passing grades on a quali-
fying examination.
Affecting army and air force
units, the quota allotted the Uni-
versity provides that a maximum
of 510 ROTC men be deferred un-
til the end of their college careers,
ROTC head, Col. Karl E. Henion
All members eligible for defer-
ment will take the qualifying test
from Feb. 21 to 25, and the grades
will be compiled in order of su-
periority soon after.

f each group and the differences
between them," Quentin Fulcher,
ADA chairman, said.
"We hope that a meeting of
this type will clarify the picture,
and enable interested students
to choose among them," he add-
The organizations which will
participate in tonight's discussion
are: Americans for Democratic
Action, American Veterans Com-
mittee, Inter-Racial Association,
United Nations Council, United
World Federalists, Young Demo-
crats, Young Progressives of
America, and Young Republicans.
THE PROGRAM has already
received the support of several
campus leaders. Jim Jans, Stau-
dent Legislature president, called
it "an excellent idea."
"Not enough students, who
are voters or potential voters,
allow themselves to stand up
and be counted on the vital po-
litical issues that arise through-
out the year," Jans said.
"This meeting is a capsule com-
mentary on campus political life,
and should be used by the stu-
dents as a springboard for partici-
pating in organized political ac-
tion," said Tom Walsh, now serv-
ing his third term on SL, an ac-
tive participant in other groups.

in Circuit Court to a charge of
maintaining and operating a gam-
bling house, but ten others plead-
ed guilty to charges of possessing
policy tickets.
The court scene followed a num-

raid one of the most successful in
Washtenaw County history.
NO STUDENTS were appre-

continue on possible connections
of other Villagers with the racket.
The ten guilty parties had
waived examination yesterday

Keynes' Economics Theory
Faulty,_Says Prof. Williams



War and post-war developments,
have cast doubt on the Keyne-
sian theory of economics, accord-
ing to Prof. John H. Williams,
Harvard economist.
"Recollecting on Keynesian Eco-
nomics," at a meetin~g of the Eco-
nomics Club at Rackham last
night, Prof. Williams pointed to
the economic predictions based on
Keynes which failed to develop.
* * *
THE KEYNESIAN theory, based
on the Quantity of Money theory,
is that money exerts an influence
over output and employment.
Prof. Williams pointed to the
effect of monetary expansion on
prices rather than increased
output as Keynes believed.
"Keynesian economics assumes
prices are static or neutral," Prof.
Williams explained.
economics are on the Consump-

tion function," Prof. Williams said.
"Why should we depend on in-
vestment? Why can't consump-
tion recreate income?
"Replacing capital with im-
proved capital is more dynamic
than expanded investment. We
don't need to worry about a
growing investment. We must
worrk about income."
"Capital gain, distribution of
income, have been some of the
post-war questions casting doubts
on the theory. Unemployment,
according to Keynes economics
was to be 5 million. Consumption
couldn't go on up. But these pre-
dictions were wrong," he conclud-

the Outlook for the Marshall
Plan" at 4:15 p.m. at Rackham

SiX Students
Found Guilty
OfCheatino -
In a tense, three-hour session
last night, the Engineering Honor
Council found six students guilty
of violating the engineering school
honor system during final exami-
nations last semester.
The Council, which was reacti-
vated last year to put teeth into
the enforcement of the honor sys-
tem, recommended that the Uni-
versity Disciplinary Committee
place five of the students on the
warning list and the other on pro-
IN ADDITION, it was recom-
mended that two of the students
be given "E" grades for the
courses in which they violated the
honor system.
A verdict in the case o two de-
fendants was postponed pending
further investigation, while two
others were cleared of the charges.
When possible, the instruc-
tors indicated the student they
believed guilty of copying and
stated the reasons for their be-
lief. (Under the honor system,
however, anyone who knowingly
allows another student to copy
his work is also held respon-

against him, presented with the
evidence, and allowed to defend

dent of the Council, emphasized
that this trial represented a re-
turn to student control of the en-

'Moral' Ties
Question Extent
Of Atlantic Pact
WASHINGTON - R) -Bi-par-
tisan foreign policy leaders of the
U.S. Senate served notice that
they would not stand for any
"moral" commitment to go to war
in the North Atlantic Security
The proposed treaty, intended
to bulwark the west against attack
from Russia, is being -negotiated
now by the U.S., Canada, Britain,
France, Belgium, the Netherlands
and Luxembourg.
THE WARNING that the U.S.
could not be committed in advance
to fight in case of an attack on a
European- nation was given by
chairman Connally (Dem., Tex.)
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee and former chairman
Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.). They
spoke out in the Senate after Sen-
ator Donnell (Rep., Mo.) had
raised the question.
Donnell cited an Associated
Press dispatch, which recited
the points Secretary of State
Acheson was understood to have
made in a recent talk with for-
eign Minister Halvard Lange of
One of these points was that,
although only Congress can de-
clare war, the U.S. government
would subscribe to the principle
that an attack on one signatory to
the treaty would be an attack on
all. This would be interpreted, it
was said, as a moral commitment
to fight.$
Donnell said:
"I want to protest here and
now about our country's being
subject to any moral commitment
under which Congress would be
bound to declare war."
* * *
CONNALLY SAID he would not
favor any lanuguage in the pro-
posed security agreement "which
would morally commit us to fight."
The Texas Senator said he
and Vandenberg have been
"making it very plain to the
Secretary of State" that the
Foreign Relations Committee
"would not approve of any sort
of language in an international
agreement which would commit
us to go to war when some other
country in Europe might be at-
"Any European nation might
attack another nation, not merely
the one country about which we
hear so much talk," Connally said
in an obvious reference to Russia.
Vandenberg said he exects the
pact to reserve to Congress "the
complete right of decision on what
to do about an armed attack."

cago Sun-Times might do pic-
ture stories on the musical.
."We think the show will be a
big success," said Zerman. "If it
is, there's a chance it might go
on the road," he said. ...

the East, drawing capacity crowds,
