U.S. Jury Indicts
Owen Lattimore
Far East Specialist Held on Seven
Counts of Perjury In Hearing
WASHINGTON-(IP)-A federal grand jury indicted Owen Latti-
more yesterday on seven counts of perjury.
He was accused, among other things, of testifying falsely that
he had never been "a sympathizer and promoter of communism and
Communist interests."
Rm nThe chargesagainst the Far Eastern specialist arise from his
testimony before the Senate's internal security subcommittee last
spring.
The president of Johns Hopkins University, Detlev Bronk, said

VA Hospital
conversion
Suggested
Local officials yesterday said
that they neither knew anything
nor had authority to do anythin
concerning a proposal to convert
the newly-constructed Veterans
Hospital into a TB hospital to re-
lieve a shortage of beds for ailing
state veterans.
Statement of the proposal came
after a smeeting in which Gov. G
Mennen Williams gave a "no mon-
ey" answer to pleas for more beds
for the State's veterans, charging
that Michfgan has been "discrim-
inated against" by the VA in th
past and that this policy is being
continued with recent VA budget
cuts.
The governor said that Michi-
gan has 197 veterans for every bed
available compared to the coun-
try's average of one bed per 146
patients.
JOSEPH W. M1ANN, service of-
ficer for the Veterans of Foreign
Wars, said that veterans groups
State physicians and others have
advocated converting the new hos-
pital to a TB hospital, but that
the VA proposed to devote only 40
beds to TB patients.
He claimed opposition by the
University had blocked use of
the local building for TB pa-
tients, according to the Associat-
ed Press. Later, Mann told The
Daily he did not know which
agency of the University had
done the blocking. His statement
had been made, he explained, on
information supplied by the Vet-
erans Administration medical
staff in Washington.
University Vice-president Mar-
vin Niehuss had told the Associat-
ed Press earlier in the evening
that the use to which veterans hos-
pitals are put is a matter to be
decided in Washington.
And University Hospital asso-
ciate director Waldo Buss said the
matter "has never been discussed.'
Donald C. Bachmann, State
legislative officer for the Disabled
American Veterans, observed, "The
situation will be even more con-
fused as it goes on."
Joint Talks Set
By SDA, CLC
? Students for Democratic Action
and the Civil Liberties Committee
last night progressed in their plans
to have joint discussions during
the second semester on topics re-
lating to civil rights.
Among the topics suggested for
discussion were "Civil Liberties and
Future Employment,' "Was Due
Process Used in the Stacy Case?"
and "The McCarran-Walters Bill."
CLC postponed election of new
officers until its first club meet-
ing of the spring semester.
Train Ducat Sales
End Tomorrow
'Tomorrow marks the last day
on which tickets for the special
Vulcan trains leaving Friday for
Chicago and New York will be
available.
Tickets will be sold from 9 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Ad-
ministration Bldg., according to

the Vulcan senior engineering so-

Lattimore giving him a leave of ab-
sence, with salary, from his uni-
versity duties "until the federal
court shall have passed upon the
charges.".
"I have done this with the ad-
vice of a committee comprising
members of the several faculties
of the university and with the
approval of the board of trustees,"
Bronk's letter added.

LATTIMORE, director of a
3 school of international relations
at Johns Hopkins University in
g Baltimore, was grilled by the sen-
t ators for 12 days about Commun-
s ist connections and what influ-
- ence he wielded on America's post-
war policy in the Far East.
"I am, of course, innocent,"
e Lattimore said at the office of
" his attorney here, where he was
- informed of the indictment.
s "That innocence should have to
g be so long defended against such
- vengeful harrassment as I have
been subjected to for three years
is something that can better be
commented on by others than by
myself."
I THE GRAND JURY, after going
- over the record of the Senate hear-
s ing with government prosecutors,
charged that Lattimore lied about
seven "material" matters. The
- jurors reported:
1. That he testified he had
never supported communism,
e whereas he "had been a sympa-
- thizer and promoter of commun-
a ism and Communist interests."
2. That he testified falsely he
did not know until 1950 Ch'ao Ting
Chi was a Communist. Chi was a
man Lattimore worked with at the
Institute of Pacific Relations, ac-
cused by the subcommittee of be-
ing a Red agent.
3. That he swore that he did not
know until the late 1930s that a
person who used the pen-name of
"Asiaticus" was a Communist,
knowing this testimony to be un-
true. "Asiaticus" contributed to
"Pacific Affairs," a magazine Lat-
- timore edited for the institute.
4. That he swore falsely that,
aside from Russian contribu-
tions, he had never published
articles in "Pacific Affairs" by
persons whom he knew to be
Reds.
5. That he testified he lunched
in 1941 with a Soviet ambassador
in Washington after Hitler's in-
vasion of the Soviet Union, where-
as the fact was that he met the
ambassador before the invasion oc-
curred and while Russia and Nazi
Germany were still allies.
6. That he swore that he never
handled the mail of Lauchlin Cur-
rie, an aide of the late President
Roosevelt. The grand jury said
there is evidence that he did so on
occasions when Currie was away
from Washington.
7. That he testified he visited the
Chinese Communist headquarters
at Yenan in 1937 without making
any advance arrangements.

"The majority of American
newspapers did an honest job,
and a good many did an excel-
lent job in covering the cam-

tained.
Campbell, who graduated from
the University in 1922, assertedI
that he had looked into the chargesI
and knew "there were newspapers'
which did a very bad job of cov-
ering the campAign."
"But I know this in newspaper
offices all 'over the country there
was a great.deal of soul-searching
in the course of the election cov-
erage."
INDICATING that "newspapers
were on trial in the election cam-,
paign," Campbell went on to de-,
clare the majority of the Ameri-
can press stands on "a solid ethi-
cal basis.",
But he warned the American,
press has been "too long compla-
cent, satisfied to do a good-]
enough job to get by, bound too
greatlysby tradition and old
concepts."
"Whether we like it or not those,
days are gone," Campbell said,
"and our competition, which has
come on a dozen new fronts, has
done them in. But journalism is
by no means a dying field."
Those who bewail the advent ofI
radio and television in the news-
gathering field will not survive, hec
asserted. _

HOST Makes
DiSalle New
Price Boss
WASHINGTON - UP) - Presi-
dent Truman yesterday brought
Michael V. DiSalle back into the
government as economic stabiliz-
er to help maintain a "strong"
anti-inflation program until the
new Republican administration
takes over on Jan. 20.
DiSalle made it clear that he
feels controls over prices and
wages will be necessary to ward off
threats of inflation for some time
to come. The former price direc-
tor added he is sure the new Con-
gress will study the situation
carefully before deciding to aban-
don the program.
DI SALLE probably will be
sworn in Monday to succeed Rog-
er L. Putnam. Putnam resigned as
economic stablizer yesterday to re-
turn to his private business in
Springfield, Mass. DiSalle, in his
new post, will have direct super-
vision over prices and wages.
In a letter to DiSalle, Tru-
man said that DiSalle's service
as reorganizer of the Office of
Price Stabilization should be of
great help in keeping the con-
trols program going.
Immediately after the an-
nouncement, administration sta-
bilization leaders held a "united
front" news conference presided
over by Defense Mobilizer Henry
Fowler.
* * *
FOWLER said the purpose of
the joint meeting was to make
clear that the price and wage con-
trol program will be maintained.
Besides DiSalle, Fowler and
Putnam, others present were Jo-
seph H. Freehill, who was sworn
-in as new director of the Office
of Price Stabilization, and
Charles C. Killingsworth, new
head of the Wage Stabilization
Committee.
The group joined in pledging to
continue "strong and vigorous
controls" in the waning days of
the Truman administration.
Fowler said that instead of
quitting as he had planned to do
Jan. 1 he will stay on until -Jan.
20, or until President-elect Eisen-
hower names his successor as di-
rector of thehOfficeof Defense
Mobilization. Fowler plans to re-
turn to private law practice in
Washington.

"The greatest change in post-

improvement in the status of wom-

Voters president Fusae Ichikawa
claimed yesterday.
In the middle of a four-month
tour of the United States spon-
sored by Columbia University's
East Asia Institute, Miss Ichikawa
said that since Japanese women
were first given the vote in 1945
they have made big strides in pol-
