Liberalized Camp us Speaker Policy Urg


Bid Signed
By 255 on
Faith in Beliefs
Cited by Nelson
A statement urging a liberalized
campus speaker policy has been
signed by 255 members of the
literary college faculty.
The petition was circulated by a
' ive-man impromptu committee.
Among its members is Prof. Nor-
man E. Nelson, of the English de-
partment, who asked last night,
"If we don't believe in freedom
R of speech, what do we believe in?
If we're afraid of someone else's
propaganda, what faith do we
have in our own beliefs?"
OTHER committee members are
Dean Hayward Keniston, of the
literary college;. Prof. William
Frankena, chairman of the philo-
sophy department; Prof. Theodore
Newcomb, of the sociology and
psychology departments; and Prof.
William Willcox, of the history de-
Prof.nNewcomb said yester-
day that "some of the signers
of the petition may or may not
have interpreted it" as a rebuke
against the restrictions imposed
by the University Lecture Com-
At least 400 of the 435 faculty
members in the literary college
were contacted, with 64 per cent
of the faculty agreeing to sign
the statement. There was not
enough time to circulate the peti-
tion in other colleges of the Uni-
NC PLANS have been made to
present the statement formally to
the Lecture Committee or to the
Regents, because of the unofficial
nature of the committee respon-
sible for the petition.
The complete statement reads:
"A university exists to train stu-
dents, to pursue free intellectual
enquiry. This pursuit is more like-
ly to be thwarted than nurtured by
a policy of protecting them against
'wrong,' 'dangerous' or unpopular
"True protection lies in the crit-
ical attitude which is toughened
byconfronting every kind of idea.
"A university, therefore, owes
two things to itself, to its stu-
dents, and to society: the op-
portunity of meeting serious
ideas of every kind, no matter
how fallacious or potentially
dangerous they may seem; and
the opportunity of examining
them objectively.
"A university must not fail to
foster these opportunities because
of any fear of the ideas concern-
ed, for fear paralyzes the dyna-
mics of a free society and turns
its energies into a static defense
which jeopardizes freedom.
"Therefore, looking to the fu-
ture rather than the past, we urge
those responsible for University
policy to welcome the presentation
of widely different points of view
on controversial subjects by speak-
ers of intelligence and integrity."

Police Rush
Aid to Youth
Riot Scene
West Germiiany
Torn by Strife
HELMSTEDT, Germany -(P) -
Police reinforcements were rushed
to the tense eastern borders of
Germany last night where thou-
sands of youths trekking home
from the Communist rally encoun-
tered new hostilities.
The violence began Tuesday
night when several thousand anti-
Communists tangled with mem-
bers of the Free German Youth,
who were singing the Interna-
tionale, and burned their blue
shirts and flags.
youths homeward bound from the
rally marooned themselves in a
dreary camp just inside the Iron
Curtain. They camped at Eich-
holz, just outside Luebeck, a Brit-
ish -zone city in Schleswig-Hol-
stein, and refused to comply with
Western Gerniany's police and
health regulations.
They preferred to leave no
record of the fact that they had
hailed Stalin in the Whitsunday
rally in eastern Berlin. They
said that registration would ex-
pose them to being blacklisted
and fired from their jobs.
Here and at other zonal points
the young west Germans who took
part in the Berlin rally were met
with scorn and in some cases
hostile outbreaks. Anti-Commu-
nist western Germans made no
effort to conceal their disgust with
the blueshirts.

a Student Legislature plan pre-

the two class days of the Thanks-

the proposal for the last four
months, consulting with Frank
Robbins, assistant to the presi-
In addition he has polled several
hundred students and many mem-
bers of the faculty and administra-
tion. The plan has been received
eagerly by nearly all, he said.
Belin pointed out that under
the plan the number of class per-
iods of the Tuesday, Thursday,

equal to those of the Monday,

WASHINGTON -- President Truman asked Congress yesterday to
let him set up a new department of health, education and security
under a cabinet-rank secretary.
The scope of the proposed new department would be about the
same as that of the present Fedemal Security Agency, headed by Oscar
Ewing. Congress rejected a somewhat similar reorganization proposal
last year.
