Open Meetings
- TwoI
TPHE OPPOSITION to open meetings re-
cently expressed by the majority of the
University's Regents is, to say the least,
The Board of Regents is an eight-
member constitutional corporation which
holds the University's charter for the peo-
ple of the state and exercises the su-
preme power in University affairs.
Two members are elected to the Board
in the statewide spring educational elec-
tions every two years. They represent the
people in guiding an educational institution
which is owned and largely supported by
the people.
This is the theory. But, in a sense, the
success of its implementation is dubious.
The fact is, the Michigan voter is
represented by the Regents but he has no
way of determining the quality or method
of his representation. There is no news-
paper in the state which can accurately
report the workings of a Regents meeting.
Reason: Regents meetings are closed.
Defense for this venerable custom is seem-
ingly logical. Many of the matters con-
sidered by the Regents are of a confidential
nature. And even on matters less secret,
the presence of the press 'and the public
limits free discussion.
These are important objections to a
change in the existing set-up. But they are
difficulties which can easily be ironed out.
The bulk of the Regents' work would
continue to be handled privately in the
committee-of-the-whole. But every issue
brought to an official vote, and accom-
panying discussion if so desired, would be
a matter of public record.
The open meeting would give individual
Regents opportunity to express agreement
or disagreement with policies adopted by a
majority vote of the. Board.
The closed meeting is not a small mat-
ter of procedure. It is primarily responsible
for the widespread ignorance concerning
the Regents, which results in relatively low
otes sending them into office. It has led to
a fallacious impression that the Board is a
solid unit of infallible experts which rapidly
achieves urfanimity on every issue with an
omniscient, godlike precision.
But, more importantly, closed meetings
violate the democratic principle which
holds that the free flow of information is
essential to intelligent voting.
There is no doubt that people of consider-
able intelligence and leadership have the
final say in the University.
But in Regents meetings it is the people's
business that is being transacted and the
people have a right to know the manner of
that transaction.
Closed meetings can only be harmful.
The fact that they cannot be logically
justified leads people to mistakenly specu-
late on what goes on In them.
By opening Regents meetings, the Board
has nothing to lose but an antiqiated, un-
supportable tradition which benefits no
one. It is squarely up to the Regents of the
University to take the initiative in allowing
their actions to be reviewed by their consti-

for the Regents
Views -
OF LATE, the University's Board of Re-
gents and MSC's State Board of Agri-
culture have been lapped with fire by a
press determined to crack the secrecy en-
shrouding their meetings. The "freedom of
information" crusade, recently launched by
the state's newspapers, has been aimed pri-
marily at these two boards.
Besieged with charges of being "un-
democratic," a majority of the Boards'
members are nonetheless standing firm
("adamant") in opposition to opening the
meetings ("iron curtain"). The argu-
ments of the University's Regents against
open meetings are not to be overlooked.
For one, in considering professorial and
deanship appointments, it would indeed be
difficult to consider candidates frankly and
freely with a news-hungry press hovering
over a meeting. The Regents would be
compelled to guard their statements-good
or bad-in the interests of the candidate's
public reputation.
Then too, Regent J. Joseph Herbert brings
up another problem-how newspapers would
handle disciplinary cases brought up by the
Board. Even if an accusation against a
faculty member or administrator were un-
founded, his reputation might be ruined by
connecting his name with adverse head-
What can happen when the press is
allowed to attend a closed meeting was
sadly illustrated several months ago at a
local conference of the American Asso-
ciation of University Professors. At that
meeting, which was called to discuss Uni-
versity athletics, Prof. Harry C. Carver
personalized the discussion with a vitriolic
attack on Athletic Director Fritz Crisler
and his "one-man control of University
Prior to the discussion, the only reporters
present--two Daily staff members and a De-
troit Free Press "agent"-were sworn to se-
crecy, so that a free discussion could be
carried on. A week later, a Free Press
sports writer blared out, word for word, the
charges against Crisler.
As it was, the real issues were sidetracked
in favor of a sensational story which ques-
tioned the ability of Mr. Crisler to hold his
job. The issue of de-emphasis was lowered
to a personal level.
Comparably, it would appear that rip-
ping the "regent's iron curtain" would
serve only to personalize issues at the
risk of reputations.
And, of course, there is the matter of poli-
tics creeping in. As a nonpartisan educa-
tional institution, the University cannot af-
ford to permit the political leanings of pros-
pective appointees or dismissals to be ad-
vertised statewide. In the long run, it might
also lead to a damper on academic freedom.
Surely, the University's faculty would view
such a situation with compunction.
Moreover, there is the matter of the Uni-
versity buying property. Had the Univer-
sity advertised its plans to build the new
Huron campus before acquisition of the ex-
tensive Glacier Way acres, prices would have
been skyrocketed beyond actual value, and
a very worthwhile project would have been
hampereoi by cost.
Finally, to the credit of the Board, there
Is no record of the misuse of state funds
or private bequests by the Regents. And
the University-under successive Boards
operating with closed meetings-has un-
deniably become one of the finest educa-
tional institutions in the country. Whe-
ther it would stay that way if thrown into
the arena of partisan politics, name-
calling, and scandalmongering is question-
The state's newspapers, who do have a
case in principle, should take these argu-
ments into consideration before pressing
their crusade for freedom of information on
the University and MSC.
If the meetings are to be thrown open,

an adequate system of safeguards ought to
be worked' out, a'nd the press will have to
acknowledge the delicate responsibilities
which go with reporting of such discussions.
-Cal Samra

WASHINGTON - Louey Johnson, the
pleasant, barren-beaned ex-Secretary of
Defense, has had three private talks with
the President, all through the White House
back door. Two were at his request, the last
was requested by Truman.
What the President cLiefly wanted,
Johnson later told friends, was to get the
veterans straightened out politically. He
figured that Johnson, a big wheel in the
American Legion, with his law partner,
Don Wilson, now national commander,
might be able to swing a lot of the vets
back into Democrat ranks.
But Johnson was quite unenthusiastic.
"I don't think I could very well go to the
veterans," he said, "with my reputation for
having been fired, and expect to make a suc-
cessful political appeal."
The President didn't comment on this,
but asked his ex-secretary of defense what
he thought of the political situation.
"I don't think Eisenhower will get any-
where," Johnson told friends that he re-
plied. "But I think he has enough strength
to block Taft. In the case of that deadlock
I think MacArthur will be the nominee,
and he is one man, Mr. President, you can't
FELLOW REPUBLICANS have been whis-
pering behind Bob Taft's back about
the way the Senator from Wisconsin has
been pushing the Senator from Ohio around.
What they say is that McCarthy barked
and Taft jumped the other day when he
issued his statement supporting McCarthy.
For exactly three months, the Wiscon-
sin wildman had been demanding such
an endorsement-in fact, ever since Mr.
Republican stepped on his toes last Octo-
ber by declaring that McCarthy's charges
had been "overstated."
"I don't think anyone who overstates his
case helps his own case," was what Taft told
the press on October 22. "The extreme at-
tack against General Marshall is one of the
things on which I cannot agree with Mc-
Carthy. I think some criticism of General
Marshall was justified, but he should not
have been accused of affiliation with any
form of Communism."
This infuriated McCarthy. Shortly there-
after, he cornered Taft in the Senate and
demanded a repudiation. At first, the
Ohioan sidestepped. He tried to placate Mc-
Carthy by repeating in subsequent speeches:
"I don't agree with everything McCarthy
says, but we can't criticize McCarthy for
starting the Communists-in-government in-
Of course, McCarthy didn't start the
Communists-in-government probe at, all,
but jumped on the soapbox long after
Alger Hiss and William Remington had
already been exposed, largely by the un-
American activities committee and by Mc-
Carthy's fellow Republican, Senator
Nixon of Illinois. Yet even this indirect
tribute from Taft didn't satisfy the Wis-
consin Senator. He began talking tough
to Taft and threatening political re-
prisals. He even boasted about it after-
ward, until it became common gossip in
the Senate cloakrooms.
Finally the harassed Taft knuckled down
and announced on January 21: "McCarthy's
investigation has been fully justified . . .
This administration has been dominated by
a strange Communist sympathy."
What made this all the more humiliating
for Taft was that it was completely one-
sided. While he announced his support of
McCarthy, the Senator from Wisconsin said
nothing about supporting Taft. In fact, on
December 14, McCarthy came out for Gen.
Douglas MacArthur for President "and a
younger man for Vice President"-meaning,

of course, McCarthy.
Ironically, it was McCarthy who defeat-
ed MacArthur in Wisconsin's 1948 pri-
mary by claiming that MacArthur was
"too old" and by smearing him with
Catholic voters on account of his divorce.
However, the political winds have shifted,
and McCarthy is now trying to tie himself
to MacArthur's kite.
Meanwhile Senator Taft explains to Re-
publican colleagues privately: "Joe was
threatening to come out for Stassen in Wis-
consin, and Wisconsin is very important to-
me. Also I had pressure from party leaders
to support McCarthy."
He identified the other party leaders as
Herbert Hoover and General MacArthur.
NOTE-Though Taft indicates to friends
that he isn't happy about his forced alliance
with McCarthy, a March of Dimes solicitor
calling on the Taft home the other evening,
discovered Senator McCarthy seated com-
fortably at the Taft dinner table.
IT HAS NOW BEEN exactly two years to-
day since McCarthy made his first claim,
in a Lincoln's birthday speech at Wheeling,
W.Va., that there were 205 Communists in
the State Department.
Immediately thereafter, at Salt Lake
City, he changed his figure to 57 and an-
nounced that he would supply the names
to Secretary of State Acheson on request.
Later he upped the figure to 81. But so far
McCarthy has supplied the name of no,
one who has been proved a Communist,

To the Editor:
SOON, the Student Legislature
will be taking up'the contro-
versial bias clause issue again. It
is an issue which many of us feel
is very important, and it is the
duty of SL to come up with the
best solution.
The only feasibile solution
since IFC's complete failure to do
anything at all about this matter,
is the passage of another time-
limit resolution.
There are those on campus who
say that a time-limit plan can
never work . . . that we must wait
around and let the fraternities
and sororities "evolve" their own
solution. I do not agree. The cam-
pus has witnessed the miserable
failure of IFC to cope with the
problem time and time again. No
one can condone such failure and
still call himself a believer in the
fundamentals of democracy.
When President Ruthven vetoed
the time-limit motion last year, a
great hue and cry went up from
every corner of campus. Even soft-
spoken President George Roumell
of SL was fed up then and said
in a letter to the Daily:
"The IFC has not won a victory.
They have gotten themselves over
a barrel. They claim they are
against discrimination. Yet they
show little action toward the
elimination of bias clauses. Ac-
tions speak louder than lip ser-
vice! It is true that the IFC has
no legal obligation in this matter
now. Yet, the moral obligation is
still there. What is IFC going to
do about it?.."
Well, just what has IFC done
about it? Absolutely nothing. A
few weeks ago they came to SL
and said in effect that they were

reflective reasonsing the infer-
ences which I can draw as the
reasons why I have not gained
admittance are as follows:
(1) My father is not an M.D.
(2) I haven't enough political
(3) My marks are average, and
erefore I need to possess (1) and
(2). The (1) is eliminated by
4) There are too many appli-
cants, and not all of the qualified
applicants are accepted. The med-
ical schools claim that the reason
is that they haven't got the facili-
ties to teach all. The United States
Government has plenty of money
with which it could easily invest
in the medical schools in order
to get this country out of this
dilemma, but the AMA, the cause
of this dilemma, influences the
United States Government not to
correct this situation. How long
will the people of the United
States stand for this is the ques-
tion. I haven't the answer, but
let us not forget Newton's Third
Law: Action-Reaction.
Now let us speculate at the
question of why do I want to study
medicine. I have always been in-
terested in the human body as
long as I can remember. I am
extremely interested in human
pathology, and the therapeutics
of these pathologies. I am fasci-
nated by this science, and I do
not really know why. All I can
know is what I can feel and ob-
serve. I feel myself drawn towards
this science, and get a lot of pleas-
ure out of studying it. Therefore
I want to obtain a medical educa-
tion since my interest is in this
field. I am also sympathetic with
all persons with pathologies, and
I wish that I could help all of
