"The extra late hours don't Mot-
her me," yawned Jack Hamer, as-
sistant circulation manager, while
commenting on yesterdays issue
"But the papers weren't ready for
delivery until after 6 a.m. this
morning. They usually go out at
4:30 a.m.".
At least, Daily shopmen have
the consolation of knowing the
new rotary press will more than
make up for all the trouble it has
been causing. As compared to the
old press that turned out a maxi-
mum of 6,000 an hour, the new
press will roll off 25,000 an hour.

Draw Protest
At Harvard
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.-(P)-The
dismissal of a score of University
of California faculty membersj
drew a protest yesterday from 87
top Harvard teachers.
The faculty members were dis-
missed by the board of regents for
refusal to sign non-Communist
oath.
THE HARVARD instructors, led
by economist Seymour Harris, said
in a statement:
"The latest action of the
board of regents renounces its
faith in the responsibility of
scholars, repudiates the estab-
lished traditions of the Univer-
sity of California and violates
faculty rights of academic free-
dom and tenure."

the west coast university's aca-
demic senate-an organization of
faculty members - had recom-
mended retention of 20 to 30
teachers who refused to sign the
controversial non-Communist
oaths.
The loyalty of all had been
cleared by the senate, Prof. Harris
said. The regents, he added,
agreed in July to retain them but
reversed their stand in August and
dismissed the men.
Signers of the Harvard teachers

fact there are dozens of coeds now
on campus who think they have
been enrolled as full-fledged mem-

Daniels Writesz
Truman's Lifef
Book Tells Reasons
For Rift With Byrnes
WASHINGTON-()-Jonathan
Daniels, in a biography of Presi-
dent Truman published yesterday,
quotes Mr. Truman as declaring
that James F. Byrnes "lost his
nerve in Moscow" and "failed mis-
erably as secretary of state."
Daniels reports Mr. Truman told
him that "Byrnes got the real
riot act" when they met aboard
the yacht Williamsburg after the
secretary of state returned from
the 1945 Moscow conference.
* * *
THE PRESIDENT believed,
Daniels writes, that Byrnes had
weakened the policy toward Russia
laid down by Mr. Truman at Pots-
dam. He disagreed with some con-
cessions made to Stalin on the
postwar governments of 'Bulgaria
and Romania.
Mr. Truman is quoted as fol-
lows:
"I told him (Byrnes) that our
policy was not appeasement and
not a one-way street."
Daniels is publisher of the Ra-
leigh, N.C., News and Observer, a
one-time presidential aide and a
member of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee. The book is
titled "The Man of Independence."
MR. TRUMAN dates the real
rift between himself and Byrnes
to the Moscow meeting, Daniels
says. Byrnes offered his resigna-
tion three months after the re-
ported reading of the "riot act,"
giving his health as the reason.
Byrnes now is the democratic
nominee for governor of South
Carolina.
Again quoting Mr. Truman,
Daniels writes:
He (Byrnes) failed miserably as
secretary of state and ran out on
me when the going was very
rough and when I needed him
worst. His 'bad heart' has now left
him when he has found out that
he made a bad guess."
The book discloses that Mr. Tru-
man failed not only in the haber-
dashery business ,but failed to
make a go in the oil business and
an Oklahoma zinc mine, tried to I
save a local bank but saw it go
broke, went into the building and
loan business but had to help send
his ex-partner to the penitentiary.
He had refused to take bankrupt-
cy, and paid off debts for years.
His mother was evicted from the
family-farm at the age of 88.
