Regent Cites
Four Values
Of Activities
Connable Opens
New SL Project
Looking at student activities
from the vantage point of a Re-
gent-alumnus, Regent Alfred B
Connable, '25, last night' praised
campus organizations as a "train-
ing ground for personal initiative
-the force that keeps democracy
a living thing."
"Tradition and sentiment aside,
activities have far-reaching effects
on the persdn in the community,'
the one-time Student Counci
president said.
the opening meeting of Student
Legislature's Student Citizenship
program, an eight-session projec'
designed to increase studen'
awareness of responsibilities in the
educational community.
Characterizing student activ-
ities as a "springboard" to carry
on in future community work,
Regent Connable outlined four
rewards of activity participation.
First was "fun," and activities
are no fun without it, the Regen'
quipped. He proved his point with
anecdotes from student experience
in a variety of campus organiza-
The second reward was friend-
ship. The genial Regent noted that
here activities superseded the
classroom in providing opportuni.
ties to get to know people by work.
ing with them.
* *
DEVELOPMENT of persona
skills was listed as a third advan.
tage. Regent Connable cited self-
expression as an example. "A lot of
labor-management difficulties have
arisen from lack of effective com-
munication," he pointed out.
As a fourth reward, the former
student leader named "training
in democracy." Since "every
process in democracy depends on
elections of some sort," he felt
that it was profitable to learn
election procedures and commit-
tee functionings at college.
Speaking as a former student
Regent Connable noted that objec-
tives of activities are often frus-
trated-"It took us on the Student
Council a year to get a cheering
section in the Stadium."
His speech was colored with rem-
iniscenses of his campus contem-
poraries-Gov. Thomas E. Dewey
("he had the best voice in the Glee
Club"), University vice-president
Marvin L. Niehuss, Dean of Men
Walter B. Rea-all of whom were
strongly activities-conscious
pIn a question-and-answer period
following his talk, Regent Con-
nable reiterated his stand in favor
of open Regents' meetings.
Next session of the Student Citi-
zenship Program will be a panel
on group dynamics held at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday in Auditorium B,
Mason Hall.

Prof. Aioler
Backs MSC
Defends Big Ten
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, Western
Conference faculty representative,
defended the Big Ten action ofj
placing Michigan State College on
probation yesterday, following a
blast at the conference action by
State Senator Haskell L. Nichols
Nichols introduced a resolution
which gave MSC a unanimous vote
of confidence by the Senate and
at the same time let fire a salvo
at Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson, Big
Ten Commissioner, who he charged
"missed the boat" in the probation-
ary action.
IN HIS SPEECH, Nichols, a Uni-
versity graduate, said the Big Ten
order results from "jealousy" and
"has gone way beyond the realm
of fair play."
Prof. Aigler countered by say-I
ing "It is a serious charge to say
that nine men from nine respec-
table universities would act
without regard to the facts."
(In the Conference action, Wil-i
son's order of probation was re-
viewed and unanimously upheld
by the faculty representatives fol-
lowing an appeal by MSC.)
The faculty board spent an en-'
tire day reviewing the case. Aid'-
ler said, and carefully weighed the
entire situation.
- * * *
NICHOLS also leveled his sights
on Prof. Herbert O (Fritz) Cris-
ler, University athletic director. He
said "The action is a challenge to.
the presidents of the Big Ten
schools and to Fritz Crisler to;
come clean and eliminate this spir-
it of jealousy."
Prof. Crisler, when contacted
last night said he had nothing

Probe Defied
,By Professor
vard physics professor Wendell H.
Furry refused yesterday to tell
the House Un-American Activities
Committee whether he is or ever
has been a Communist.
In a statement issued later to
the press, however, Furry said he
is not a Red.
"I assure my friends and col-
t leagues that I am not a member
of the Communist party, that I
have no personal knowledge as to
whether or not there is any Com-
munist partynat Harvard or any-
where else," Furry stated.
He did not say whether he had
belonged to the party in the past.
* * *
ROBERT G. DAVIS, an English
professor at Smith College, testi-
fied Wednesday he knew Furry as
a Communist when Davis was a
member of a Red Cell at Harvard
from 1937 to 1939.
Furry, during his appearance
in the witness chair, invoked his-
constitutional right not to testify
against himself.
In his press statement Furry
said his refusal to answer some of
the committee's questions does
not imply that he is guilty of any-
"The fact is that I have not
committed any crimes and I
have never done anything with
intent to injure the United
States," he added.
"It is an unfortunate fact, how-
ever, that under present circum-
stances a person who is subjected
to interrogation of this kind, has
cause, no matter how innocent he
may be, to apprehend that accu-
sations have been or will be con-
structed against him."
Furry talked readily about his
background, education and work.
But he repulsed all questions as to
any Communist connections.

He said this was heartening and

Report Lists
Lawyer Desirous
To Co-operate
Smith, trustee of the much-de-
bated expense fund raised for Vice-
President Nixon while he was
senator, has reported handling
$25,056.63 in political contribu-
tions during Nixon's vice presi-
dential campaign.
The report, filed with the clerk
of the House, covers the period
from Nixon's nomination by the
Republican National Convention
last July to Dec. 26, 1952.
SMITH, Pasadena, Calif., at-
torney, said in a letter accompany-
ing the report, he did not think
he could be considered a "com-
mittee" which the law requires to
file such reports.
"Nevertheless, it is my desire
to co-operate fully with the ef-
forts of Congress to learn what
receipts and expenditures have
taken place," his letter said.
The report was filed last Dec.
29, but its existence did not be-
come known until yesterday when
the New York Post carried a story
on it.
THE CLERK'S office said it was
not shown to newsmen at the time
of filing because of standing pro-
cedure that only reports asked for
specifically by name are made
available for inspection.
Smith had said last Septem-
ber he would make an account-
ing of funds contributed to Nix-
on after the convention but all
newsmen apparently assumed
the report would be filed as con-
tributions to Nixon, rather than
to Smith.
Smith's comments in Septem-
ber followed the disclosure that
Smith and other friends of Nixon
had raised $18,235 to pay certain
expenses of Nixon while a senator
from California. The fund became
a campaign issue.
Democrats questioned its pro-
priety and called on Nixon to re-
sign as the GOP vice presidential
' nominee. Nixon contended there
was nothing improper about the
fund. Gen. Eisenhower, as the Re-
publican presidential nominee, up-
held Nixon.
An audt made public at that
time showed $11,000 had been con-
tributed since the Republican con-
vention. And Smith-in promising
a later accounting-said more
than $2,000 was received within
three days after Nixon's dramatic
television broadcast explaining the
$18,235 fund.
Art Shows Ego
It's not necessary to be nuts to
be modern, according to Dr. Dan-
iel E. Schneider.
Speaking at Rackham Hall on
"Esthetics and the Ego," Dr.
Schneider gave his theory on psy-
chiatry and art to a packed aud-
"The human ego is the articu-
late center of our universe." he
said. "Ego as a dreamer leads to

the high road of esthetics."
Art work is a mere technical
process which transmits the sub-
conscious of the artist. Just as a
dream can be interpeted, so can
a piece of art work.
"Art gives us the opportunity
to identify ourselves with ttie ar-
tist. You do not go to a play to be
a part of the audience, but to
identif nnrelf with the nart

potent Montreal scoring punch. Another occasion, he saidwas
