Swedish Nominee Refuses To Give
Final Decision, Pending Consultation
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.-(M)-Russia and the Western powers
yesterday dramatically broke their long deadlock over the $40,000-a-
year, tax-free chief executive job in the UN.
They pushed through the Security Council a surprise nomination
of Dag Hammarskjold of Sweden to succeed Norway's Trygve Lie
as security general.

Forty-four months as a civilian

University doctor from military
A bill to accept time in POW in-
ternment as physician's military
service has been introduced in the
Senate by Sen. Charles E. Potter
(R-Mich.) on behalf of Dr. Frank
Crowe of University Hospital.
-* * *
THE ACTION would defer the
junior clinical instructor in der-
matology and syphilology and
father of three children from the
two year military hitch required
for physicians under the Selec-
tive Service Act. During World
War II, Dr. Crowe spent almost
four years as a civilian prisoner
of the Japanese.
The outbreak of the war found
him delivering mail on Wake
Island as postmaster for a con-
structioni company.
"The army had rejected me and
overcrowded medical schools made
me decide to go off to the islands
one month after I received my B.A.
degree from the University of
Idaho in 1941," Dr. Crowe said.
BECAUSE HIS university pro-
gram included ROTC training he
volunteered to the Marine Corps
on Wake Island but was refused

freedom as a guerilla until cap-

Budge (R-Idaho).

'>talk with his Swedish colleagues
before deciding whether to accept
the nomination.
His nomination by the Secur-
ity Council, including Russia,
surprised him and Sweden, of-
ficials said.
Expressing his own surprise,'
Hammarskjold told reporters: "I
don't know if there's much reason
for congratulation. There had been
no preliminary contacts in the
matter, neither here nor in the
United States nor elsewhere."

Five permanent members of the
11-nation council-the U. S., Brit-
ain, France, Russia and National-
ist China-agreed on the Swed-'
ish economist and deputy foreign
minister as a final compromise.
This climaxed' nearly three
years of bitter wrangling over
the post.
The necessary final approval of
Hammarskjold in the 60-nation
General Assembly is expected to
follow soon without difficulty.
His name never had come up
before as a possible candidate dur-
ing recent fruitless maneuverings
to fill the post.
The council vote was 10-0, with
Nationalist China abstaining, ap-
parently because Sweden recog-
nizes Red China.

Move Seen
No formal faculty protest ap-
peared in the offing yesterday over
the Association of American Uni-
versities' statement on academic
freedom and faculty-university
rights and responsibilities.
Although the resolution was
never brought before the Faculty
Senate for discussion prior to pass-
age by the Association, several
faculty members, who criticized
sections of the declaration in yes-
terday's Daily, said they had notl
considered bringing the matter be-
fore the Senate or other faculty4
* * *
PROF. PRESTON W. Slosson of
the history department said last
night he would discuss the mat-
ter further if it came up for de-
bate, but planned to do nothing on
his own initiative.
Sections of the statement,
which declared that universities
should re-examine qualifications
of faculty members who invoked
the Fifth Amendment in testi-
mony and said Community Par-
ty membership removes the right
to a University position, were
attacked Monday night by Prof.
Another critic of the statement,
Prof. Amos Hawley of the sociology
department, said he would like
to see the matter brought before
the Senate, but did not expect
such action to occur.
Neither Prof. Hawley, Prof. Slos-
son nor several other professors re-
ported widespread faculty discus-
sion of the Association statement
which was published in full in yes-
terday's Daily.
Conceivably the matter might
be brought up at any faculty
meeting, especially since no fac-
ulty group had been asked to
consider it before, several pro-
fessors concluded.
Termed a "guiding document
with -no legal binding" by Univer-
sity President Harlan H. Hatcher,
the statement was adopted by the
37-member Association, which
speaks for its members on matters
of common interest.

Hit by Senior
Disapproval of University meth-I
ods in changing final exam sched-
ules was voiced last night by Sen-
ior Board in a letter to be sent to
the University Commencement
Board members also unanimous-
ly approved a motion asking vot-
ing student representation on the
Committee, and acted to combine
efforts with Student Legislature in
a study of the problem.{

PROPOSED by literary college
president, Roger Wilkins, '53, the
letter protests the manner in
which exam schedule revisions'
were made without consideration
of student opinion on the matter.
Though some Board mem-
bers had been told such a
change was being contemplated
several months ago, no studentsr
were consulted when the final
decision was made.
Reportedly the action, which
moved the exam period up one day{
to begin Friday, May 29, was as
much a surprise to many faculty
members and administrators as it
was to students. It was taken by
a special commencement commit-
tee with approval of executive com-
mittees of the University's schools
and colleges.
Assistant to the President Frank E.
Robbins, who served on the Com-
mencement Committee, Flynn was'
assured the Board would here-
after be consulted on such deci-
Under the revamped schedule,'
seniors will have to complete
exams by Saturday, June 6.
The change also cuts out the'
"dead weekend" in effect for sev-
eral years which allowed students,
a full weekend of study before
their first finals.
With the revised system in ef-
fect, seniors will be officially grad-
uated on Commencement Day, in-
stead of merely being recommend-
ed for graduation subject to final

Rose Bowl
CHICAGO - (A) - Purdue
climbed aboard the Rose Bowl
bandwagon yesterday with a
vote that virtually assured con-
tinuation of the Big Ten-Paci-
fic Coast Conference football
series on New Year's Day for
at least another three years.
Purdue thus reversed its
stand of three years ago when
it opposed the current series
which expires with the 1954
New Year's Day contest.
The Lafayette, Ind. school's
affirmative vote apparently as-
sured the required 6-4 major-
ity needed in the Big Ten for
conference approval.
