Rep. Meader
To Introduce
Bill for Liu
Deportation Case
To Go to House
Rep. George Meader will intro-
duce a private bill requesting per-
manent residence for Dr. Vera Hsi-
Yen Wang Liu of the University's
pediatrics department to the House
of Representatives today, Francis
Schilling, the doctor's attorney,
announced yesterday.
Dr. Liu, a native of China, ap-
pealed to Rep. Meader, after the
Detroit immigration office turned
down her appeal for permanent
residence and notified her to be
ready for "voluntary deporation"
in 30 days.
* * *
THE immigration board turned
down Dr. Liu's application for cit-
zenship with only an explanation
that her case was not "meritori-
ous," although her affidavits and
requirements were pronounced
"favorable," Dr. Liu said.
"The decision of the board is
high-handed and is not justi-
fied by the record," Schilling
The attorney claimed that the
immigration service has made a
mistake in failing to correct its
BECAUSE of the national ra-
ti dio and press publicity that Dr.
Liu's case has received, Rep. Mead-
er has decided to sponsor a bill in
her behalf, according to Schilling,
who received a long distance tele-
phone call from the Congressman
The young pediatrician made
application for permanent resi-
dence after her student visa ex-
pired, but it was denied by the
Detroit board in a hearing Jan.
23, 1952.
An appeal of the decision was
made in April, but was dismissed
last October and the order of vol-
untary deportation was issued Feb.
Since Dr. Liu's native Shanghai
is overrun by the Communists,
she has no idea where she could

Reston Says U.S.
World Leader
James Reston "viewed the news" yesterday with what he termed
both an optimistic and realistic view point.
Speaking before a packed Hill Auditorium audience, the renowned
New York Times correspondant claimed emphatically that the United
States has not failed to meet the challenge of world leadership. "The
time for sacrifice is now," Reston said, "and this country is making
that sacrifice."
THE FOREIGN correspondant went on to name the two necessary
ingredients of a successful foreign policy as the maintenance of
power and the readiness to strike at the aggressor's first move.
"Since 1945 we have taken these two steps," Reston said. He
pointed to such accomplishments as the United Nations, NATO,
the Marshal Plan, and the meeting of the aggressor in Korea.

On Thomas
Charges Set
Examination of Benny Thomas,
former University Hospital jani-
tor, on twin charges of felonious
assault and unlawfully driving
away an automobile without in-
tent to steal, is set for 9 a.m. today
in municipal court.E
The 30-year-old prisoner was
captured last Monday after a wild
chase through Willow Village in
the car he allegedly borrowed
without permission from a hospital
* *
LAST WEEK Thomas was iden-
tified by X-ray technician, Virgin-
ia J. Wrobleski, as the man who
knocked her down and tried to
choke her in a hospital corridor
Feb. 28.
Thomas has refused to make
any confession or offer an alibi
for the attack, but he did ad-
mit he "borrowed" the car from
an acquaintance, police say.
Thus far police officers have
failed to find any substantial evi-
dence to support a theory that
Thomas was the masked gunman
who forced his way into an Austin
Ave. home Feb. 26, to hold four
women captive while he ransacked
the house for a mysterious object.
Two of the women were unable
to pick the suspect out of a police
line-up last week, and prosecutor
Edmond F. DeVine said last night
'there was nothing to indicate
Thomas was the same man.
In addition to the charges levied
against him in Ann Arbor, Thomas
also faces an assault and battery
charge in Ypsilanti township for
an attack on a Willow Village
woman the same afternoon as his

powers, Reston predicted that

Ohio State to a race-horse 95-71
triumph over Michigan at the

Ebert's 34 point harvest shat-

THE AMAZING Buck pivot op-
erator dropped in 20 points in
the first half, reminiscent of his
40-point effort here last season,
as the local quintet played the
fast break to perfection to go
ahead 47-32 at halftime.
In the second half it was mere-
ly a question of how many tal-
lies Ebert would ring up and
whether the high-scoring Buck-
eyes would hit 100.
Ohio State forward Bill Wilks!

referred to American military
establishments "which must and

RESTON laid bare the "com-
mon illusion" that the Russians
are clever diplomats. "Never has
a government thrown away so
much good will as the Russians
have since 1945," he claimed. "If
the Russians are clever diplomats,"
the former sportswriter joked,
"then I am Bennie Oosterbaan."
Switching from foreign policy
to comment on the state depart-
ment officials whose loyalty hasI
recently been under fire, RestonI
said, "If we go on attacking civil
servants because they have made
the wrong predictions or because
they have disagreed with the gov-
ernment's foreign policy, such men
will be afraid to give back any re-
port other than that which suits

The second half of the program

sion on academic freedom with
Lowenstein, Prof. Preston Slosson
of the history department, Prof.

Prof. Henry D. Aiken of the phil-

WITH A LIST of presidencies
and chairmanships to rival any
student politico, Lowenstein is a
qualified participant for both
phases of the program.
Starting out as an active mem-
ber of the University of North
Carolina's tri-partite student
government, the 24-year-old law
student in 1947 served as presi-
dent of the Encampment for
Citizenship, a summer European
travel program.
Lowenstein became both na-
tionally and internationally mind-
ed as president of the National
Student Association in 1950-51.
The national chairmanship of Stu-
dents for Stevenson is his latest
political venture.

ALL THIS HAS led Lowenstein
to a point where he can talk ex-
temporaneously on "student rights
and responsibilities" forgetting
neither philosophical foundations
or widespread, vivid examples.
Student government, to Low-
enstein, is more than an extra-
curricular activity, a "basic in-

Like many democratic govern-
ing bodies including NSA, student
government faces a dual problem
of apathetic citizenship and a lack
of effectively outlined jurisdiction,
Lowenstein felt.
Television discussions with
House investigator Rep. Harold H.
Velde have given Lowenstein past
experience on academic freedom
panels. On the question of whether
Congressional investigations of
colleges are justifiable, Lowenstein
has taken a negative stand.
Not a single Communist has
made his voice heard at NSA meet-
ings, Lowenstein said, and from
knowledge of most national cam-
puses, he felt that "educational in-
stitutions have not demonstrably
been influenced by Communism."

Masaryk Death Shrouded in Mystery

Daily Managing Editor
"A good patriot and a friend of our people, a man who just a
few days ago said that he was going on by the side of the people,
has voluntarily put an end to his life."
This announcement of Jan Masaryk's death, made five years ago
today to the Czech Parliament by Communist police boss Vaclav
Nosek created one of history's darkest enigmas. Was it suicide or
murder? Documentary details of what took place in Prague's chill
dawn of March 10, 1948 have remained obscured behind the Iron
* * * *
HOWEVER, some accounts have seeped out-lending strong cred-
ence to the suspicion that Masaryk, a name that symbolized democracy
and was therefore anathema to the new Red regime, was murdered.

diplomatic corps. He worked with Masaryk from 1939-1945 with
the government-in-exile in London, teamed with him at several
UN conferences after the war.
Prof. Benes also was closely associated with Masaryk during the
fateful period of December, 1947 and January, 1948, when the hand-
writing was on the wall.
* * * *
TWO MAIN REASONS were cited by Prof. Banes in rejecting the
official Communist explanation of "suicide."
First, he pointed out that the details as reported by the Reds
were highly unlikely. The bathroom window from which he al-
legedly jumped, accoriling to Prof. Benes, is oblong and six feet
above the floor.
Why, he asked, would Masaryk choose the window which was
unlikeliest for his purposes?
