commemorating the hundredth
anniversary of the composer's

Owen will be the soloist in the
"Concerto No. 2 in F minor."

ALSO ON THE program is an
address about the composer by the
Hon. Tadeusz Frymar, acting con-
sul general of Poland in Detroit.
"The concertos are almost twins
in their general design," according
to Prof. Meller.
"The initial movements pro-
ceed with an economy of statement
and conviction, while the middle
movements are in Chopin's en-
chanting 'Nocturne' mood. And
the last movements are mixtures of
gad dance rhythms and infectious
Polish melodies," he said.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is
a background report on the Commu-
nist Conspiracy trial by a Daily staf-
fer. who spent several days covering
the trial.)
Thirty-nine weeks ago the Com-
munist Conspiracy trial-perhaps
the longest Federal Criminal Case
in history-began in New York's
sky-scraper Federal Court Build-
The case, which piled up a rec-
ord of more than 9 million words
and 20,000 pages of testimony,
ended yesterday afternoon with a
jury verdict finding each of the 11
defendants guilty.
NEXT STEP for the defendants
will be a series of appeals leading,
they hope, to a Supreme Court de-
cision declaring the Smith Act un-
constitutional. It is this act which
served as the basis of the case.
The Act declares that "it shall
be unlawful for any person to
knowingly or wilfully advocate,
abet, advise or teach" overthrow
of the government by force or
The Smith Act was originally
passed in 1940; its purpose at that
time being to protect the Govern-
ment during a period of emer-
gency. It was necessitated by the
fact that, although technically,
we were still a neutral country;
Faculty Wary
Of Comment
On Red Trial
With two exceptions, a cross
section of University faculty mem-
bers questioned yesterday on the
conviction of the Communist
leaders, declined comment.
The general feeling of the group
was that they didn't have the nec-
essary specialized knowledge to
speak on such a "momentous"
- Comments came from Prof.
John F. Shepard of the psychology
department and Prof. Shorey Pet-
erson of the economics depart-
Prof. Shepard scored the trial
as "pretty poor legal proceedings"
and said that the government was
getting on "mighty muddy
ground" in prosecuting men "not
for acts but for ideas."
Prof. Peterson said only that he
was "pleased at the treatment of
the lawyers."

in actuality we had
begun aid to the allies.
* * *

PART OF THE reason for the
length of the trial were defense
claims at the outset that New York
jury lists were drawn up on a dis-
criminatory basis giving Negroes
and other minority groups little
chance of getting on a jury.
As a result, two months were
consumed before 12 jurors were
finally selected.
Then last August, during the
28th week of the trial, the defense
introduced a motion to disqualify
theatrical producer Russell Janey
from further jury duty on the
grounds that in a speech made
three weeks before the start of the
trial, Janey called for a "war to
the death against communism."
Judge Harold Medina denied the
motion. "
MEDINA'S frequent promise
that the defense lawyers "would
be dealt with at the conclusion of
the trial" for their courtroom be-
havior was fulfilled as the five
lawyers were sentenced to terms
ranging from 30 days to six
Harry Sachen, defense lawyer
whom Medina earlier in the trial
cited as having made "some of
the most contemptuous remarks
ever heard in a courtroom" de-
clared yesterday that his sen-
tence was a small price to pay
"in the cause of liberty."
The Judge then interrupted. "It
is not the price of liberty, but of
misbehavior," he said.
against the 11 defendants is that
in 1945 they re-organized the
Communist party along violent
lines, advocating and teaching the
desirability of overthrowing the
To substantiate this claim,
Prosecuting Attorney John F. X.
McGohey introduced many
books on Communist strategy
and tactics into evidence.
The defendants denied seeking
power through revolution and de-
scribed themselves as politicians
working within the framework of
government for a new socialistic
nation of peace and plenty.

THE FAMOUS "Hurry Up" Yost
was coach and athletic director at

the University from 1901 to 1940.
His powerful "point a minute"
teams at the turn of the century
set the stage for the University's
present renown as one of the na-
tion's football powers.
A picture of the 1902 team
that scored 644 points while
holding opponents to 12 is a part

came to Yost is depicted by a

Dirty Work Not Strange
To Former Tugs-of-War

Fleet Admiral Halsey is shown as he started testimony in favor
of the Navy in its campaign against "inadequate" defense plans.
But up popped Commander Tatom, a navy aeronautics bureau
official who poo-pooed the atom bomb, one of the key items in the
House investigation. Tatom said that a man could stand at one
end of Washington National Airport and come through an atom
explosion at the other end "without serious injury."

"Kicking, biting and slugging
are barred."
This warning to participants in
the 1925 Frosh-soph tug of war,
appearing in The Daily, was ap-
parently not out of place.
IN THOSE DAYS, the teams
were really out to win, witnesses
say. And what's more, they add,
there were crowds two to three
times the size of the 1949 one to
watch them do it.
One particularly spirited year,
an observer reports, one of the
teams hitched their end of the
rope to a team of hefty horses,
over the ridge of the hill so the
other side wouldn't see them.
The opposing side, reportedly
unaware of the horses, hitched
their end to a tractor. They say
the rope snapped.
* * *
A 1929 DAILY reports another
kind of battle between the classes.
It seems that the team which car-
ries the rope to the site of the

event gets the dry end of the
rope, the other end getting wet by
being dragged across the Huron.
This particular year, the sophs
had gotten possession of the
rope and were about to drag it
across the Huron to the frosh
when the frosh came up with a
rope of their own. Things sim-
mered for a while, then got hot-
ter. Finally, a solution was
reached: the two ropes were
spliced in the middle.
That same year, more trouble
was reported in The Daily when
the teams tried to pad their teams
with extra men.
And to end a perfect day, the
sophs cheated on the free for all
tug, which has no limit to the
numbers on the teams. Realizing
they were outnumbered four to
one, they enlisted the aid of as
many bystanders as they could get.
And to cinch things, they tied their
end of the rope to a nearby tree.
The rope snapped. The judges'
decision went to the frosh.
