Progress in the McPhaul dinner
investigation came to an abrupt
stop yesterday.
The faculty Sub-Committee on
Discipline, which will make the
final decision, was originally
scheduled to sit down at 2:30 p.m.
today and settle the affair.
BUT THE meeting was called
off at dinnertime last night for
several reasons:
One of the three members on
the Sub-Committee was called
out of town for the day.
Another is sick.
And the report from the Joint
Judiciary Council, which has been
holding hearings for the past sev-
eral weeks, is not ready. No reasons
have been given for the delay, but
it may have been prompted by
difficulties in preparing the leng-
thy, written document explaining
the Judiciary's findings.
It was believed, however, that
the Judiciary has reached a deci-
sion and will pass 'it on to the
Sub - Committee for approval
The Judiciary has names of at
least 16 students known to have
attended the allegedly illegal din-
ner March 6 in the Union. Its job
is to recommend what disciplinary
measures, if any, should be taken
against them.
If all goes well, the Sub-Com-
mittee may go to work on the case
by tomorrow. All top University
personnel connected with the in-
vestigation have expressed assur-
ances that they want to wind it
up as soon as possible.

Y'P's to Probe
Union Dinner
In an attempt to determine
whether academic freedom has
been violated in the McPhaul din-
ner investigation, the Young Pro-
gressives -will hear student wit-
nesses in their meeting at 7:30
p.m. today in Rm. 3G of the Union.
No official answer has as yet
been issued to the YP's invita-
tion to President Harlan H. Hatch-
er or his representative to present
the administration's stand on the
McPhaul cases.
President Hatcher's office said
yesterday that he would be out
of town until Thursday.
During today's meeting, several
YP members, implicated in the
dinner investigations, will present
charges that they have been
wronged in the, Joint Judiciary
The purpose of the hearings,
according to YP co-chairman Joan
Berler, '54A&D, is to enable Young
Progressives to draw up a state-
ment of their stand on the Mc-
Phaul issue. The group intends to
present the statement at the
Eoard of Regents' next meeting.

LANSING-()-Governor Wil-

tough" policies to aid in the quick
restoration of normal security at
southern Michigan prison.
In a directive to corrections com-
missioner Earnest C. Brooks, Wil-
liams told him he "will be pro-
vided with all the necessary as-
sistance from the forces at my
disposal" for "completing the re-
storation of order and discipline"
in the prison.
THE STATEMENT was ordered
broadcast over the prison radio
Williams said he had instruct-
ed the state police to "maintain
adequate forces at the prison."
The governor also announced he
had accepted the offer of State
Police Commissioner Donald S.
Leonard to postpone his scheduled
May 1 retirement during the prison
The legislative appropriations
committees plan to meet at the
prison Wednesday noon to make
an inspetion of the riot damage
and discuss the cost of repairs.
The Legislature assemble Thurs-
day to consider an appropriation
to cover the riot damage.

MEANWHILE, Deputy Warden
Vernon Fox, who has become a
storm center of controversy in the
wake of the riot, defended his
actions before the Lansing Opti-
mist Club.
He said that his statement con-
gratulating the mutinous inmates
was made before the hostages were
released and was designed to
clinch the agreement the muti-
neers had made to surrender.
In Jackson, conditions were re-
ported getting back to normal in
the 6,490-inmate institution. But
a shakedown of inmates of cell
block 15 where the mutiny started
the night of April 20 was still
under way.

Japan S lips~
Past Clash
With Russia
Peace Pact Ends
U.S. Occupation
TOKYO, Tuesday, April 29-b?)
-Japan, once again independent,.
delicately sidestepped today her
toughest diplomatic problem-fu-
ture relations with Russia, Red
China and other Communist na-
Scarcely had the Japanese peace
treaty become effective Monday at
10:30 p.m. (7:30 a.m., CST, Mon-
day) than it was blasted by both
Russia and Red China as a pact
for "a new war in the Far East."
* *, *x
THE TREATY became effective
when the United States deposited
its ratification at the state depart-
Thus ended nearly seven years
of allied occupation, and the
end of SCAP-Supreme Com-
mander, Allied Powers. Gen.
Matthew B. Ridgway, who in
April, 1951 succeeded General
MacArthur as Supreme Com-
mander, was appointed by Pres-
ident Truman to succeed Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower as com-
mander of North Atlantic Treaty
Organization forces.
The security treaty which came
into force with the peace pact
made Japan in effect an ally of
the United States.
* * *
IT GUARANTEES the contin-
ued presence of American forces
in and near disarmed Japan, and
this arrangement has long been
Moscow's target.
An historic 11-minute State
Department ceremony which
made the two treaties effective
also produced these actions.
1-Military occupation by U.S.
forces came to an end after six
years and 8 months.
2-Truman proclaimed the term-
ination of World War II between
the U.S. and Japan, which started
with the Japanese attack on Pearl
Harbor more than a decade ago.
3-The 13-nation Far Eastern
Commission, which was set up to
advise the American occupation
commander on Allied policies,
automatically went out of exis-
* * *
BUT THE Soviet Union, through
Ambassador Alexander Panyush-
kin, in Washington assailed both
the treaty and the Mutual Secur-
ity Pact as illegal and "prepara-
tion for a new war."
High ranking Japanese officials
including State Minister Katsuo
Okazaki, have said termination of
the council eliminates Russia's
only legal reason for having rep-
resentatives here.
However, Japan apparently was
waiting for some policy statement
from Moscow on future Soviet-
Japanese relations before announc-
ing her own policy.

THE REDS agreed to a United
Nations command suggestion for'
a news blackout on future sessions
of the full-dress delegations. Then
they called for an indefinite recess
in the talks pending a study of the
new Allied proposal.
The negotiations are tightly
deadlocked on three main is-
sues: prisoners exchange, Allied
refusal to accept Russia as one
of six neutral truce inspectors
and Communist insistence on
the right to build and repair
military airfields.
As the talks reached a critical
stage, this was the status of the
three deadlocked issues:
Prisoner exchange - the Reds
coldly rejected an Allied offer to
return 70,000 of the 169,000 Com-
munist military prisoners and
civilian internees.
Airfields - The UN command
said it was willing to permit "a
limited number" of civilian air-
fields to be rebuilt during an
armistice, but is opposed to. unre-
stricted construction because of
the growing threat of Communist
air power.

Britain's Field Marshal Lord
Montgomery said in Lisbon that
he was "delighted" and would
'serve under him (Ridgway) at
SHAPE with absolute loyalty so
long as he needs my services."
On Capitol Hill, some legisla-
tors expressed mild disappoint-
ment that Gruenther had failed to
get the top command.
In Tokyo, Ridgway issued a
statement declaring:
With full realization of the great
task ahead of me, I approach this
new assignment thankful for the
great organization work done by
my distinguished predecessor (Eis-
enhower) and confident of the
continued support not only of my
own country, but of all free coun-
tries represented by the north At-
lantic council."
Although passed over for the
European post, Gruenther quickly
commented that it would be no
strain on relationships at all" for
him to serve under Ridgway and
said he would be "delighted to
serve" as his chief of staff.

Pupils Will Get
preme Court upheld yesterday
New York State's system of releas-
ing public school pupils from
classes to receive religious educa-
tion away from school property.
The 6 to 3 decision, which
brought sharp dissents from Jus-
tices Jackson, Black and Frank-
furter, sanctions in effect released-
time programs involving some two
million pupils in most of the 48
It came several years after the
court held in a similar case that
religious instruction cannot be
given to pupils, grouped accord-

Iva Ikuko Toguri D'Aquino-on
her appeal from a conviction
for treason.
2. Upheld, 5to 4 an Illinois law
banning publications which expose
members of any race or religion
to hatred or ridicule.
Justice Douglas delivered the
majority opinion in the religious
education case, rejecting the con-
tention of two Brooklyn mothers
that New York's one-hour-a-week
program violates the constitu-
tional ban agairst any "establish-
ment of religion." Others in the
majority were Chief Justice Vin-
son and Justices Reed, Burton,
Clark and Minton.
DOUGLAS HELD that the con-
stitutional provision does not mean
that "in every and all respects
there shall be a separation of
church and state."
If it did, he said, "The state-
and religion. would be aliens to
each other-hostile, suspicious
and even unfriendly" to such an
extent that prayers in legislative
halls, and even police protection
of churches, would be forbidden.
The three dissenting justices
held the objections of the Brook-
lyn parents, Mrs.. Tessim Zorach
and Mrs. Esta Gluck were well
All three contended the princi-

ruled unconstitutional a Cham-

groups during "released time" on
public school property.
aroused a widespread controversy
with many religious leaders divid-
ed on the question of whether the
Supreme Court had correctly in-
terpreted the constitution.
Black said in yesterday's dissent
that the new decision abandons
"the state's historic neutrality in
the religious sphere" and makes
"invidious distinction" between
those who have religious belief and
those who do not.
Black held New York State is
using its compulsory school atten-
dance law to force attendance at
religious classes.

Home wth 61
Hobson Men
WASHINGTON -(P)- The 27,-
100-ton aircraft carrier Wasp
limped home last night with 61
survivors from the destroyer-
minesweeper Hobson, which it
cut in two in a mid-Atlantic col-
lision Saturday night. Missing-
and apparently lost-were 176 oth-
er members of the Hobson's crew.
It was one of the worst peace-
time disasters in American Naval
Capt. B. C. McCaffree, comman-
der of the Wasp, said the 1,600-ton
Hobson broke in two and sank
four minutes after it came under
the cliff-like bow of the carrier
during night maneuvers on an
inky sea.
Shipssand aircraft searched for
survivors until sundown Sunday
on the faint chance that some of
the 176 seamen may still be res-
cued, the Navy listed them as
"tentatively missing."
The Wasp and the Hobson, a
converted destroyer, were en route
to the Mediterranean in a task
force when the accodent occurred
1,200 miles due east of Boston and
about 700 miles off the Azores.
