Education School
. Admission
By DONNA HENDLEMAN
Daily Associate Editor
THE UNIVERSITY'S education school has
made a poor bid for a higher enroll-
ment by lowering its grade point require-
ment for admission. Although the discarded
prerequisite for education school standing,
2.25, was by no means an .extraordinary
one, the school officials have decided they
had set their standards too high. Now, a
two-point is all that is needed for entrance
into the upperclass School of Education.
Although this move will probably draw
more people into education school, Dean
Olsen's professed object in the change, to
bring more people into the teaching pro-
fession, will probably not be fulfilled.
A mere advancement in education school
enrollment will not mean an increase in
available teachers. Already there are num-
bers of students in the education school
who have never entertained any intentions
of teaching, but have discovered that edu-
cation courses often provide an easy way to
get through college.
in order to bring more and better people
into any profession, it is necessary to make
preparation for and work in the field at-
tractive to the people who will be best suit-
ed to enter it. As.long as teachers are un-
derpayed and under-rated professionally,
teaching will be considered a comparatively
bleak way to map out one's future.
As long as a school presents no chal-
lenge for good people, it will be shun-
ned by them. Although correlation be-
tween grades and post-school success is
shaky and often even non-existent, it
seems fair to demand a certain amount of
academic prowess to complement profes-
sional training.
When a school goes so far as to make it-
self especially attractive to the poor student,
it stands the chance of losing many good
ones. Although Dean Olsen maintains "se-
lection for the profession has been and will
continue to be high" the fact is that the
only screening education school candidates
undergo involves their ability to meet -the
point requirement. Education school stu-
dents can look forward now, more than ever
before, to spending their academic career
in a school which caters to the "C" student.

BEHIND THE LINES
0 The MSC Miama

By CAL SAMRA
Daily Editorial Director
W HEN BIG TEN Commissioner Tug Wil-
son placed Michigan State College on
probation Sunday for allowing sideline sub-
sidization of its athletes by an alumni organ-
ization, the perennial question came to mind
as to what the proper relation between
sports and education on a college campus
should be.
At tiro.'es, it is rather difficult to ser-
iously consider the college to the West
as primarily an educational institution,
particularly when one is frequently con-
fronted with evidence to the contrary. It
is even more difficult to regard MSC ob-
jectively when:
A Detroit News sports writer boldly reveals
that the 1951 Spartan football squad was
bolstered by a player with an IQ of 80.
A star Detroit prep halfback, Jerry Mu-
setti, is mysteriously spirited off the Uni-
versity of Michigan campus, ending up at
State.
The Michigan State News, MSC student
newspaper, devotes columns upon columns
of editorial page comment on the profound
subject of sports.
The Big Ten Commissioner points to
the "notoriety" of the Spartan Founda-
tion, the defamed alumni organization
which was founded for the rwirpose of
soliciting funds for athletes.
Apparently, sports is king on the State
campus, and the entire student body, plus
administration and alumni, seems to be suf-
fering from acute monomania. All the pub-
lic relations men in East Lansing cannot
erase this impression.

Sports are definitely an intrinsic part of
college life, but when a college is carried
away by the benign contemplation of mus-
cular meatballs, its academic dignity is
bound to suffer.
The University, fortunately, has never.
permitted its sports to outshine its status
as an aducational institution. Even in the
latter forties, when Michigan football
teams were the pride of the nation, the
University was not losing, but gaining
respect in the eyes of the academic world
-thanks to the balanced policies of the
Ruthven Administration.
In light of its most recent black-eye, it
would seem time for MSC to re-evaluate
itself in terms of the balance between sports
and education. As a comparatively young,
growing institution, State is suffering from
the usual birth pains. If it is to continue to
grow, to realize its potential as a great
Michigan university, the college must be
convinced that, while successful athletics
may net millions, they do not contribute one
iota to the academic prestige of a univer-
sity.
Many Southern, and some Western, col-
leges have tasted the bitter fruits of glor-
ified sports. Educational standards are
invariably lowered at institutions where
high-powered, semi-professional sports
are the rule. Most of these institutions
have fallen into academic disrepute.
With a little soul-searching, State might
arrive at the conclusion that the Musetti's
and the alumni recruiting systems are not
really as indispensible to the college as
some may think.

CINEMA

At the Orpheum,. ..
BRANDY FOR THEIPARSON
BRITISH austerity, though it may be hard
on Englishmen in general, is really a
boon to their moviemakers. Shortages and
bureaucracy give this picture a focus for a
great deal of wry good humor.
Two very nice people off on their sail-
boat for a holiday accidentally smash up
the craft of a third person, a blithe and
genial, smuggler. Before they've finished
apologizing, they find themselves commit-
ted to hauling ten barrels of contraband
across the channel and into London.
The officials in hot pursuit aren't actual-
ly ogres, but they are singularly single-mind-
ed. Looking like Horatio at the bridge, a
port officer relentlessly scouts around in his
launch after clues. Later, a terribly wizened
little judge pronounces sentence on the mis-
creants like the original lion under the
throne. Besides the government, some other
venerable institutions take their subtly de-
livered lumps.
The whole coup is brought off with doz-
ens of deft touches. Making their way
along the old Ronan roads followed by
five loaded ex-circus ponies, the group
calls itself the "Imperial Trans-Andean
Expedition, just practicing to get our
wind up, y'know." Again, a roving troop
of boy scouts is cajoled into doing its
good deed, for a fee: hauling the brandy
out of a bay.
James Donald, Kenneth More, and Jean
Lodge play the leading smugglers, and an
engaging group they are. They inject just
enough seriousness into the roles to keep
things from dissolving into foolishness.
-Bob Holloway

W ASHINGTON-A ,reckoning with Sen.
Joseph R. McCarthy, of Wisconsin is
very likely to be the next stage in the Eis-
enhower administration's shakedown into
an effective working team.
The truth of the matter is that Mc-
Carthy and certain of his Congressional
imitators apparently think the Eisen-
hower administration is just as fair game
as its predecessor. And since the election
has given McCarthy and the other like-
minded Republicans control of their in-
vestigating committees, they are not sub.
ject to any restraint whatever.
McCarthy's immediate target, of course,
is the State Department and its allied agen-
cies, such as the Voice of America. With
regard to the department itself, the tactic
adopted by McCarthy is to invite every mal-
content in the organization (which numbers
some 40,000 people) to tell his or her story.
Reform of the State Department, and res-
toration of public confidence in the depart-
ment and its officers, are of course among
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' chief
objectives. There is no doubt that the re-
form will have to extend to the filing and
security systems.
But orderly reform cannot be carried
out, and public confidence certainly can-
not be restored, while every discontent-
ed clerk is encouraged to blacken the
State Department's name under the full
glare of national publicity.
The case of the Voice of America is, if
anything, even more acute. This wretched
organization was originally established on
the motion of McCarthy's committee col-
league, Sen. Karl Mundt, of South Dakota.
Almost from the day of its establishment, it
has been treated by Congress as silly gar-
deners treat plants-it has been regularly
pulled up by the roots to see how it was
going along. If there have been foolish po-
licies' and wasteful practices in the Voice of
America, the main reason is that the "Voice"
has never had time to settle down to its job.
Again, there is little doubt that the
"Voice," and indeed the whole ridiculously
swollen American information program,

should be thoroughly overhauled. But what
reputable men will choose to tackle this as-
signment, as long as McCarthy is waiting
in the wings with a hatchet?
These questions have already thrust
themselves, rather rudely, on Secretary Dul-
les and his co-workers. The new Under
Secretary of State in Charge of Adkninistra-
tion, Donold Lourie, has come to the de-
partment from the cloistered confines of the
Quaker Oats Company. A Chicago business
man who had mainly read McCarthy's side
of the story in the home-town press, Lourie
is known to have been astonished, appalled,
and angered by the conditions that actually
confronted him when he took over his new
office.
A former football player, Lourie is a
two-fisted fighter. The tattletale secur-
ity officer, Matson, was transferred out
of the head office, to work on a beat,
after he had given his testimony. This
caused Sen. McCarthy to shout a threat
to Samuel Boykin, acting director of the
State Department's Security Bureau, that
he would have him thrown out of his
job. But Under Secretary Lourie was in
fact only persuaded with great difficulty
not to dismiss the McCarthy pet, Matson,
out of hand.
For all these reasons, Secretary Dulles
and Vice-President Richard Nixon will
shortly meet with Sen. McCarthy, to see
whether some sort of modus vivendi can
be worked out. But there are two obstacles
to any such agreement.
First, Sen. MCarthy will almost certain-
ly ask for the head of every State Depart-
ment officer who has ever incurred his en-
mity, which Secretary Dulles cannot hon-
orably grant. Second, Sen. McCarthy has
higher ambitions than a mere blood purge
in the State Department. Any limitations
on his peculiar methods of attaining these
ambitions are not likely to suit him. This' is
why it is a good bet that the Eisenhower
administration is eventually going to have
to fight McCarthyism at home, just ass it
has to fight Stalinism abroad.

A Challenge .
To the Editor:
ON FEB. 13, a typical piece of
"Hollander-style" journalism
appeared in The Daily on the Ro-
senberg case. In it, the said Zan-
der Hollander falsely waters-down
Albert Einstein's appeal for clem-
ency as being based solely on the
grounds of mercy. Now the taking
of two lives is a serious matter,
and if for no other reason, the
facts relevent to the case should
be cited accurately. Here is what
Einstein actually said:
"Dear Mr. President: My con-
science compels me to urge you to
commute the death sentence of
Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. This
appeal to you is prompted by the
same reasons which were set forth
so convincingly by my distin-
guished colleague Harold C. Urey,
in his letter df Jan. 5, 1953, to the
New York Times."
Urey's letter is too long to quote,
but among other things, he said
"I found thebRosenbergs' testi-
mony more believable than that
of the Greenglasses. . -. " (The
conviction was 4obtained on the
testimony of the Greenglasses.) In
short, Einstein and Urey ques-
tioned the evidence in the case,
and did not appeal for clemency
on the basis of mercy alone.
This is not the first time that
Zander Hollander has exhibited
a disregard for the facts. At the
end of last semester, the Labor
Youth League also got the Hol-
lander "treatment." An air of
mystery, intrigue, secrecy and
machination was conjured up
around the LYL with such "tal-
ent" as to make struggling young
detective-fiction writers green with
envy. The LYL was the main char-
acter in this great drama, but the
"plot" was supplied by Mr. Hol-
lander's fertile imagination.
Apparently Mr. Hollander thinks
that if McCarthy can do it, he can
too. If that's the case, the students
should be entitled to hear both
sides of the story so they can
make up their own minds.

I am therefore challenging Mr.
Hollander to a public debate on
his late and unlamented series to
see if we can't "mutually" arrive at
the truth.
-Mike Sharpe,
Chairman,
Labor Youth League
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Sharpe has
amply presented his viewpoints pub-
licly in letters to the editor, and pri-
vately in the senior editorial office.
Beyond this, we recommend that he
negotiate directly with Mr. Holland-
er.)
J-Hop Extra...
To the Editor:
Y COMING to the defense of
the J-Hop Extra, Edna Mary
Poe raises the question of how
poor taste is to be defined. I as-
sume that there are three kinds
of material which might appear
in a newspaper. There are articles
to which none could take excep-
tion; there are articles which vi-
olate the public stautes; and in
between there are articles which
while not Punishable by law are
felt to be in poor taste. This third
area is not easy to define, but one
might include in it open or con-
cealed references to bodily func-
tions which are natural in them-
selves but which are ordinarily
carried out in privacy, whether of
the bathroom or the bedroom. I
would include in this class the ar-
ticle "This I Conceive" and the ar-
ticle on "Hot Fertilizer." I would
also have included the article on
President Hannah of Michigan
State College (Dr. John A. Hum-
ble), but on further examination
it seems clearly to violate the
state law against libel as quoted
in the Daily's own handbook. "Any
publication .. . which tends to in-
jure one's reputation . . . or which
tends to hold him up to scorn,
ridicule, or contempt, or which is
calculated to render him infamous,
odious, or ridiculous, is prima facie
a libel, and implies malice in its
publication."
-Joshua McClennen
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The J-Hop is-
sue is an annual attempt to view
with a measure of levity the events
and issueswhich we have reported
with gravity during the semester.
Placed in this context, we do not feel
the profile of "John A. Humble" was
malicious and therefore libelous
either implicitly or .otherwise.)

The Philly Story .. .
To the Editor:
THE MUCH criticized critic, Mr
Tom Arp, has done it again
This time it is a rather long te-
dious and highly inconsistent re-
view of "The Philadelphia Story.'
One begins to wonder if such re-
views are worth the space the
take or if they are simply space-
fillers.
Let us look at a few quotes from
Mr. Arp's review. In the first para-
graph he says, "The choice 01
Barry's drawing room comedy gave
the Student Players an opportuni-
ty to try their hand at a more so-
phisticated play than "Brigadoon'
or "Finian's Rainbow." The resul
is a jolly and entertaining eve-
ning." However, in the last para-
graph we have: " .. . they broughi
to the play all the poise and fresh-
ness that could be expected," bul
in the sixth paragraph Mr. Ar
changes his mind and says, "Ther
was very little of the freshnes
which might have given it the ex-
hilaration and bounce that Barr3
must have wanted." I should thin

ON THE
WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND
with DREW PE ARSON

.01'

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS

by Dick Bibler

WASHINGTON - The backstage details
vi have never been told, but President Eis-
enhower held a dramatic meeting just be-
fore his first press conference in order to
discuss the biggest problem on his mind-
the farm crisis.
This column has seen the President's
private notes that he used both at this
meeting and later to guide him at the
press conference. In talking to the press,
however, he left out several points on
farm prices which he had written down in
his notes.
Those who met privately with the Presi-
dent were: Secretary of Agriculture Benson,
Senate Agriculture Chairman Aiken of Ver-
mont, and Senator Carlson of Kansas, a
close friend and representative of a big

"Notes on the Farm Price Situation," and
stressed the "action taken by the Secretary
to remedy the price situation."
It may have been an accident, due to ner-
vousness in holding his first press confer-
ence ,but Eisenhower didn't give the press
much of what Secretary Benson had done
to alleviate the farm crisis. These Benson
moves, as listed in the President's private
notes, read:
"Price support programs have been ad-
ministered. There have been heavy pur-
chases of dairy products and large quan-
tities of corn and wheat have gone under
loan. OPS interference with prices and
grading of cattle has been removed.
Orderly marketing has been encouraged.
Cooperation has been given in strengthen-

outline showing that the biggest drop in
farm prices come under the Democrats.
His notes pointed out: "extent of over-
all decline in prices of farm products-
from the peak, February 1951, to election
time, November 1952, 12 per cent; from
election time, November 1952, to inaugur-
ation, January, 1953, 4 per cent."
Another matter straightened out during
the White House farm session was Benson's
relations with Congress. The new Secre-
tary of Agriculture has been considered a
bit aloof and uncooperative, but he promis-
ed the President that he would consult with
Congressional leaders on farm policy be-
fore making any more moves. He added
that he had appointed several advisory com-
m~itte.paonddidn't intend to act until he
