Student Deport
Threat Criticized
Campus Aroused by 'Unfair' Move;
Danger to Foreign Students Feared
Daily City Editor
Impending deportation of a University graduate Indian student
brcught forth a wave of severe criticism on campus yesterday, directed
at U. S. immigration procedg.res and based partly on fears for the
future security of the University foreign student community.
Students and professors joined in protesting the move as being
"unfair," "unconstitutional," and even "parallel to conditions under
Communist and Fascist regimes." One legal expert called for a signi-
ficant revision of American laws as a result of the action. Others be-
gan pushing for a free legal coun- -

Union Hastens
Oil Strike End
WASHINGTON --()- o. A.

* score of unions involved in the
nation-wide oil strike, said last
night "we are calling off the

foresaw a quick end to the 16-day

Y could come only through local
agreements between union and

a local basis, involving some 22
different unions and hundreds of

These officials stressed that an
actual end to the strike will come
gradually, as such local agree-

PROF. MEISEL, who lived in
Nazi Germany until 1934, com-
mented that he "feels the paral-
lel to. Hitler's early years very
strongly." The pattern, he said,
is to "start with aliens, then nat-
uralized citizens, and finally iso-.
.later liberals."
The danger symptom "is not
in what we say and do, but in
what we don't say and don't do
as a great silence spreads among
the intelligentsia, with every-
body scurrying from cover to
cover and trying to get an alibi."
He said he "viewed with alarm
the trend in this country."
Prof. Meisel added that pres-
ent deportation procedures "will
hardly help combat Communism in
Asia, but will have an effect en-
tirely opposite."

SINGH meanwhile, packed his
bags and left Ann Arbor yester-
day. Friends said he planned to
confer with relatives in San Fran-
cisco and 'probably will comply
with the deportation order.
While in Ann Arbor, Singh com-
plained he had not been informed
of the reasons for the Justice De-
partment's decision.
Detroit immigration officials
explained that this was not re-
quired by law.
Detroit district director J. W.
Butterfield said the decision was
made on "good grounds" by offi-
cials in Washington. He added,
however, that the Justice Depart-
ment "took into consideration"
that Singh had already spent six
years in this country, "more than
enough time to obtain a degree,"
and that he had an unauthorized
transfer to the University of
Washington while here.
His transfer to Michigan,
which came after the deporta-
tion decision also was never
authorized, Butterfield said. He
added that Singh had under-
gone a "very thorough investi-
gation by immigration officials
in California. He was given an
opportunity to answer a lot of
questions, and must know the
reasons for his ouster."
Singh has admitted making his
home in California with a group
of Indian students who have since
been deported as Communists, but
he has professed no similar affil-
tations himself. SeVeral. faculty

LANSING-"There is no politics

I say; I plead nothing but Ameri-
canism," Gen. Douglas MacArthur
emphasized last night in preface
to his blast at the Truman Ad-
Addressing a jam packed joint
session of the state legislature
Gen. MacArthur criticized present
financial policies, tax loads, for-
eign policy, foreign aid and charg-
ed that our two-party system was
bing jeopardized because both par-
ties were attempting to unite un-
der the leadership of one indi-
* * *
THOUGH HE never named Gen.
Eisenhower as the individual con-
cerned'in the supposed secret par-
ty alliance, he elaborated that
"this form of political conniving is
destructive to the very essence of
true representative government
and sets the stage for the emer-
gence upon the American scene
of the ugly threat of a military
state."0 .
"Nothing is more conducive to
arbitrary rule than the military
junta," he warned.
MacArthur will pass briefly'
through Ann Arbor today and
will make a short speech at 9:45
a.m. on the steps of the Rackham1
Bldg. where he will be honored
by city and University officials.
. Speaking of the growing con-
centration of federal power, he
advised "a return to a diffusion
of the political power so wisely{
ordained by the Constitution, leav-
ing to the community the man-
agement of its local affairs, and to
the citizen the management of his
personal life."
"Nothing threatens us more
acutely than our financial irre-
sponsibility and reckless spend-
thrift policies which jeopardize all
thrift and frugality," he said.
"The entire burden of taxation
must be further materially reduc-
ed," 'he emphasized, adding that
"a reasonable limit must be plac-
ed upon the very exercise of the
power to tax."

DISCUSSING the threat of
Communism, the General charged
that the internal danger is great-
er than the external. "We must
not underestimate the peril from
within," he warned.
"It must not be scoffed at as
our present leadership has been
prone to do by hurling childish
epithets, such as red herring,'
'character assassin,' 'scandal mon-
ger,' 'witch hunt,' 'political gang-

Monroney Lauds
Democrats' Past
Record of Action
Speaking yesterday at the second political rally of the semester,
Sen. Mike Monroney (D-Okla.) pointed with pride to the Democratic
record, asserting that it would be "tough to forget in November."
The Freshman Senator maintained that ,although the party had
made mistakes during its 20-year regime, it had erred through "a
policy of action" which contrasts with the "drifter" policy of the GOP.
IN AN INTERVIEW with The Daily later in the evening, Mon-

Truman To Stump for Democrats

WASHINGTON -(A)-President
Truman said yesterday he's ready
to stump the country just as hard
for this year's Democratic Presi-
dential candidate as he did in his
own famous whistle stop campaign
in 1948.
And he predicted the Democra-
tic nominee will win on a platfotm
of what he called "Trumanism"
despite efforts of "the mossbacks"
to depict administration farm and
other measures as socialism.

ism is just plain bunk and ho-
kum," Truman told a crowd of

Under the new system, formu-

At the same time senior class

STILL SILENT on his choice for
the nomination, Truman told his
news conference he may go to the
Democratic national convention in
Chicago to make a speech, but not,
until after the Presidential and
Vice Presidential nominees have
been chosen.
If he does, he said, It will
mark the opening of the whistle-
stop campaign he plans to make
for the Democratic ticket. In
1948, Truman made 356 speeches
and travelled 31,700 miles in
quest of votes in his own behalf.
The President also said Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey of New York
made an untruthful statement last
week-end when he accused the
administration of rigging farm
prices just before the 1948 election.
Dewey, who was defeated by
Truman in that election, made the
charge in a television interview
Large Oregon
Vote Forecast
PORTLAND, Ore. -( P)- The
weatherman brightened the out-
look for a big cross-section vote
today in Oregon's primary and
the far West's first presidential
polling of the 1952 campaign.
The forecast: Sunny, 72-degree
conditions. It encouraged official
estimates of a record 60 per cent
response by the 778,000 voters.
An energetic campaign in his
behalf established Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower as the man to beat in
the Republican preferential elec-
tion. Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio
by-passed the Oregon race for 18
delegates, but Eisenhower' sup-

to casting her electoral votes for

Monroney's appearance was
part of his avowed campaign for

REPEATEDLY during the day,
Monroney upheld both Truman's
seizure of the steel mills and U. S.]
