witnesses to testify at public hear-
ings scheduled for next week on
Communist infiltration of col-
leges and universities, the United
Press reported yesterday.
Velde did not identify the wit-
nesses who will appear before the
committee Wednesday and Thurs-
day, Feb. 18 and 19.
The Illinois Republican said
his group is co-ordinating its in-
quiry of colleges with one

Velde said that the investiga-
tions were not concerned with col-
leges and universities as such but
rather with Communist Party
members who are "engaged in the
field of education."
Meanwhile, Sen. Willis Smith,
(D-N.C.), said that the City of;
New York 'should dismiss four
municipal college teachers who
have refused to tell the Senate

are Communists.

HEIL EXPLAINED that at last
summer's national convention, a
motion was initiated mainly by
eastern schools to remove the re-
strictive clause. Despite consider-
able support, the motion failed to
be carried by the necessary two-
thirds vote.
A spokesman for the Williams
Phi Delta Theta chapter pointed
out that the fraternity has
"some very wonderful Jewish
members who were initiated be-
fore the clause was inserted in
the constitution prior to World
War I."
The next Phi Delta Theta na-
tional convention is in 1954. Heil
could make no predictions as to
whether the move would be car-
ried atthis time.
He said that his fraternity had
instructed him to vote for the re-
moval of the clause and that in
the future the local chapter would
"go along with anything the In-
terfraternity Council proposes to
remove the rule."

lacking much of the traditional
tenseness and drama of the Mich-

The first Michigan goal came
at 15:02 of the first period; while
the Wolverines were a man
short. George Chin grabbed a
loose puck in Spartan territory,
skated behind the visitors' nets
and neatly snuck a pass to Pat
Cooney who drilled the puck
between goalie Jack Shackle-
ford's skates for the score.
After this brief show of action
things quieted down again until
midway in the second period when
Reg Shave caught the goalie off
balance after rebounding a Ron
Martinson shot.

to slip atomic secrets to Russia.

New York's Sing Sing Prison.
They appealed for presiden-
tial clemency--the last resort in
their long court fight--on the
ground that they were innocent.
With the appeal, Federal Judge
Irving R. Kaufman of New York
granted a stay of execution until
five, days after the President an-
nounced his decision.
This does not necessarily mean
the couple will die five days hence.
The question of a date for their
execution will come before Judge
Kaufman again
Their attorney, Emanuel Bloch,
said in New York he would appeal
the decision to the U. S. Supreme

EARLIER, the President met
with about a dozen administration
officials and Republican congres-
sional leaders for a discussion on
"the general subject of interna-
tional trade and reciprocal trade."
Other White House develop-
ments included:
1. An announcement that Eisen-
hower will hold his first news con-
ference as President next Tuesday
at 10:30 a.m.
2. The President signed a bill
extending until 1955 his powers to
reorganize executive agencies of
the government. The measure con-
tinues the same reorganization
power .which former President
Truman had.
3. Eisenhower met with the Na-

of State Dulles gave the council a
report on his trip to Europe, from
which he returned Monday.

"Any exceptions to this procedure
shall be by mutual agreement to

To this, SAC recommended a

"No such agreement may be
