Special to The Daily
DETROIT-Speaking last night
at the first annual Williams Day
Dinner, sponsored by the Young
Democrats of Michigan, W. Averell
Harriman said America and her
allies must beware of "relaxations"
as a peril to free world security.
"Nobody admits to being an iso-
lationist," said the former mutual
security director, "yet there are
people who are urging us to re-
duce our efforts. I believe it is ac-
curate to call them the 'relaxa-
tionists.' "
* * *
"IN ONE WAY or another, the
relaxationists take every occasion
when there appears to be a slack-
ening of the immediate threat
from Moscow to use their influ-
ence to slow down or reverse the
policies which have been success-
ful in developing strength and
unity among the free nations."
Harriman said the new Rus-
sian regime, while apparently
shifting to softer tactics, has
given no sign of abandoning its
"ultimate objective of Commu-
nist world domination."
Expressing concern over the Eis-
enhower administration's program
of proposed military and foreign
aid cuts as a step toward a bal-
anced national budget and pos-
sible reduced taxes, Harriman said,
"I decry those influences in the
Republican ranks which would
slash them still further. The Dem-
ocratic party should fight these in-
fluences with all the vigor at its
IN REGARDS to the recent Att-
lee-McCarthy trans-Atlantic con-
troversy. Harriman said, "The Att-
lee statement was inept, not un-
kind; it did not justify a man
standing in the Senate and infer-
ring that Attlee is a Communist."
He went on to say that the
statement against Attlee was a
lie and that McCarthy, protect-
ed by Congressional immunity,
knew it was a lie.
Former Senator Blair Moody,
toastmaster of the banquet, con-
tinued the attack on McCarthy's
recent indictment of former Prime
Minister Attlee by saying that Mc-
Carthy "was helping the Com-
munists by attempting to weaken
the alliance of the free world
against Communism."
Distribution of the 1953 Mich-
iganensian will end tomorrow.

chapters, and to the one council
for the League houses.
The individual house councils
handle most infractions of wo-
men's rules such as failure to
sign in and out of the dormitory,
tardiness exceeding 30 minutes
during a semester and violations
of individual house rules.
House councils vary in size from
three to six persons and must be
elected by their house. Punish-
ments inflicted by the judicial
bodies include social probation and
special house duties, depending up-
on the violation and individual
group. Unlike Men's Judiciary,
women's council cannot levy puni-
tive fines.
ONLY CASES of a private or,
serious nature. are now referredI
to the League Jurdiciary Council,
which used to handle all infrac-
tions of women's rules under the
previous constitution.
Members of the League coun-
cil individually supervise house
judiciaries, giving aid and ad-
vice when necessary.
Final authority and power to
handle violations of women's rules
is vested in the Women's Panel, a
body consisting of the chairman
and a junior member of League
Judiciary and the Dean of Women.
Members of the panel have one
vote each in all decisions.

Oil to States

President Eisenhower yesterday
set Monday as the day he will car-

the states' title to oil-rich sub-

The announcement came from

that Eisenhower has voiced sup-

the states' claim to offshore sub-

Nevertheless, Reuther said, the
President should veto the bill,
which cleared Congress this week,

Ross toured the 'mile in the
amazing time of 4:11.4 to finish

who also ran an outstanding
double in the mile and the two-
mile runs. After finishing less than
a second after Ross in the mile,
Jewsbury nosed out Wolverine
George Lynch in the two-mile, in
one of the most exciting finishes

Says Czech
Wife's Letter
Of Little Effect
By The Associated Press
Thin and pale, reporter William
Nathan Oatis returned to the free
world yesterday from Czechoslo-
vakia's Pankrac Prison, where for
two years he was so cut off from
outside news that "I did not even
know Stalin had died."
Stalin's picture "was still on the
wall," the AP correspondent told
about 100 reporters and photogra-
phers after driving through the
Iron Curtain frontier under escort
of officials from the U.S. embassy
in Prague.
Jailed because Czechoslovak
leaders considered as spying his
insistence on reporting accurately
about their Communist regime, he
was pardoned by President An-
tonin Zapotocky Friday night and
released yesterday morning.
BOLSTERED by a fresh shave,
a haircut and a hearty meal, the
39-year-old Hoosier faced the news
conference in the ballroom of the
Hotel Grand, a structure requisi-
tioned by the U.S. Army.
Calm during a barrage of ques-
tions, he told the group he was
notified by a Czech security of-
ficial Friday midnight that he
was going to be released.
This drew the question: "Why
do you think you were released?"
"Frankly,dI don't know," Oatis
answered with a puzzled expres-
sion. "I was told that a letter my
wife wrote to the President of
Czechoslovakia had a great deal
to do with it-more than anything
"WERE YOU subjected to open
terrorism or mishandled?" a re-
porter asked.
"No, I was not," Oatis an-
swered firmly.
But he said he was "interrogated
under methods usual in some coun-
tries and unusual in others. He
added "psychology was used."
Asked about his treatment in
prison and whether it was the
same throughout his confinement,
Oatis replied: "The treatment
varied from time to time, but in
general it was good."
Here on campus, Prof. James
H. Meisel of the political science
department viewed the corres-
pondent's end of imprisonment
as "part of the general frame-
work of the recent Soviet peace
Commenting on the effective-
ness of Mrs. Oatis' letter to the
Czech government, Prof. Meisel
claimed thatit "had been on ice
since November" and probably had
little effect in the newsman's re-
Throughout the entire affair,
Prof. Meisel felt that the State.
Department had been constantly
"active" to secure Oatis' return
to the Western world. He said
that the U.S. had put economic
pressure on the Czechs for a num-
ber of months.

Three Houses To Support Removal

Only three of the 14 campus fraternities known
clauses will hold national conventions this summer.
But all three reportedly plan to support removal of
inatory clauses.

their discrim-

THE THREE fraternities are Sigma Alpha Mu, Kappa Sigma
and Sigma Phi Epsilon.
The viewpoint of most of the bias clause houses not slated for
conventions was more or less expressed by Trigon president Adrian
Oudbier, '54, who said, "since the problem is not pressing, no
definite action is being taken."
Sigma Alpha Mu president Stan Blumstein, '54BAd, said that the
local chapter has unanimously voted to lead the fight for clause re-

we feel in future years it would make the fraternity more in harmony
with the democratic traditions of the University," according to Byron
West, '54A, chapter president.
* * * *
THE LOCAL CHAPTER has been using the Big Ten Counselling
and Information Service to sample clause removal sentiment among
the 120 Sigma Phi Epsilon chapters throughout the country.
"We will probably bring up a clause removal motion" at
the national convention in September, West said, "but what kind
of a motion it is will depend on what kind of answers we get oi
the survey."
West said that the number of replies so far was too small to allow
accurate gauging of national sentiment, but added he "suspects" most
chapters favor keeping the bias clause. Many of Sigma Phi Epsilon's
chanters:are nated in the nSoth.
