Ike Defends
Of Truman
Says Brown el
Must Give Proof
Eisenhower upheld Harry S. Tru-
man's patriotism yesterday and
said he, personally, would not have
subpoenaed the former President
in the Harry Dexter White case.
The chief executive told a news
conference it was inconceivable
that a man in Truman's position
knowingly damaged the United
BUT THE tempest roared on
over Atty. Gen. Brownell's charges
that Truman promoted White to
the International Monetary Fund
in 1946 after the FBI had identi-
fied the late Treasury official as
a Red spy.
Brownell late in the day is-
sued a statement saying the
State Department had supplied
him a copy of a memorandum
dated Feb. 5, 1946, from Secre-
tary of State Byrnes to Presi-
dent Truman.
Brownell said the memo shows
that White's "espionage activities
were known to the White House
and other government agencies be-
fore Senate confirmation and be-
fore his promotion to the import-
ant position of executive director
of the International Monetary

yond question that there was lax-

Brownell to support the charges
with essential evidence. He said

Truman has said White was
fired when it was learned he was
"wrong." So far as the records
show, White resigned in 1947 and
received a letter of acceptance and
praise from Truman.
Meanwhile Chairman Velde (R-
Ill.) of the House Un-American
Activities Committee, who had
subpoenaed Truman for tomorrow
said he would consult the full
committee as soon as possible.

BURLINGTON, Vt. - Herschel
D. Newsom, master of the Nation-
al Grange, said yesterday the
American farm program is ready
for some fundamental changes
away from "relief."

IN AN EFFORT to prevent fur-
ther episodes, acting Dean of
Students Walter B. Rea warned
yesterday that any University stu-
dents caught on the East Lansing
campus in the act of painting
signs or with paint brushes in
hand will face immediate suspen-
sion for an indefinite period.
Thesame ruling was reported
to have been in effect at MSC
where housing groups have been
warned against any more paint-
Iing of the Ann Arbor campus.
The four were apprehended by
MSC campus police shortly after
midnight with paint brushes in
hand. Gerald D. Pruder, s55E, and
William R. McCabe, '54E, were
picked up after they painted "Beat
State" on a campus footbridge.
Stanley E. Sattelberg, '54E, and
Raymond E. Sund, '55E, painted
the same slogan on the agricul-
ture and rhusic buildings -and a
Macklin Field ticket booth.
They were released and turned
over to University authorities aft-
er being booked on charges of ma-
licious destruction of property.
Three former University stu-
dents, now enTolled at State,
were also nabbed by MSC cam-
pus police who caught them
hurrying away from MSC's be-
loved Spartan statue with blue
paint and brushes.
Meanwhile University officials
were without clues as to who was
busy with green paint here on
campus at the same time. The Mu-
seums Bldg., the Kellogg Bldg.,
the "M" seal on the Diagonal and
the area in front of the Union
were thoroughly spattered with
Ann Arbor police scoured the
streets in search of roving bands
of MSC students who had not ma-

SL Requests
SAC Change
In Regulation
Claims SL' Stand
Violated by Rule
Student Legislature last night
voted to recommend that the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee change
one of its regulations governing
conduct of the propbsed Academ-
ic Freedom Week meetings, be-
cause the ruling "is in violation of
SL's Academic Freedom Policy
Under discussion was the re-
quirement, passed Tuesday by
SAC, that all those attending the
SL-sponsored Academic Freedom
Week meetings, slated to begin
Sunday, Nov. 15, sign their names
to majority or minority reports of
resolutions submitted at any ses-
THE MOTION to be presented
at an SAC meeting Monday reads
"because of the importance of
Academic Freedom Week to the
students, SL accepts responsibil-
ity for the Week's activities in ac-
cordance with regulations passed
by SAC."
SL members explained their
request by adding "We feel this
regulation inhibits full expres-
sion of student opinion. In the
atmosphere of intimidation gen-
erated by such measures, stu-
dents may hesitate to sign a res-
olution even though it expresses
their true beliefs, because they
fear future reprisals."
Included in the motion, passed
21-3, was the phrase that "SL,
realizing that the conference is not
a definite recognized group, agrees
that any resolutions, recommenda-
tions or reports coming from this
group should not be presented as
an expression of student opinion
at the University."
SL ALSO SENT a request to
members of the Board of Regents
asking the members to meet indi-
vidually or as a group "with an SL
designated student group a mini-
mum of once every three months
in order to discuss campus prob-
Initiating the motion, Leah
Marks, '55L, claimed SL had
neverkhad5formalized contacts
with the Regents, who "as
duly elected representatives of
the State of Michigan, have a
duty to listen to students."
In the last two years, she said,
SL has submitted many proposals
to the Regents, few of which have
been adopted by that body. If SL
maintained continuing contact
with the Regents, she added, more
student projects might be accept-
ed in the future.
Previously the Legislature
voted to table sponsorship of a
non-profit office service for
campus organizations.
Objections were raised concern-
ing financial and accounting prob-
lems inherent in the project be-
cause SL presently obtains its of-
fice materials at cost if the mater-
ials are used exclusively for Leg-
islature functions.

Lie Advocates Change
In Veto on UN Entrance
In an Oxford-tinged Scandinavian accent, Trygve Lie last night

there "should be no veto" in this area. Instead two-thirds of the
General Assembly and seven Security Council votes snould allow

Lighter Second Day Balloting Seen;
Cloudy, Cool Weather May Up Tally
An unusually light first day turn-out of 3,657 voters marked yes-
terday's campus-wide elections to fill 23 vacant Student Legislature
SL hopes of a record high vote were doubly dimmed yesterday
by the fact that second-day balloting is traditionally far lighter than
first-day polling and that fewer students are on campus Thursdays
than Wednesdays.
Weather Bureau forecasts of cloudy, cooler weather helped some-
what, however, to brighten outlooks for a higher-than-usual second-
day vote today.
BERT BRAUN, '54, SL elections director predicted that slightly
more than 2,000 voters would cast second-day ballots before 5 p.m.
today, when ballot boxes will be "
officially closed.
If Braun's predictions mater-
ialize, total voting would neigh-
cent vote turnout, as compared IIe t O e e

Moreover, the NorwegianC
statesman indicated he did not
approve of Red Chinese repre-

ed. "It would hurt the spirit of
the UN charter to allow the
Communist Peking government
into the UN because such ac-
tion requires a peace-loving gov-

Little Significance Seen
In California Election

Several University political
science professors said yesterday
they saw little evidence of any
significant nation-wide political
trend in Republican Glenard P.
Lipscomb's victory in California's
24th District special Congression-
al election Tuesday.
Lipscomb, with 42,880 votes,
comfortably outdistanced the
Democratic candidate, George Ar-
nold, who tallied 34,545 votes.
INSURGENT Republican, John
L. Collier, who had caused his
party to have serious qualms be-
fore the election, finished in the
"also ran" column with 3,616 votes.
Irving Markheim, a chronic Dem-
ocratic candidate, had 1,150.
Any indicative split in the Re-
publican ranks, between the
Nixon faction represented by the
victor, and the Warren-Know-
land faction represented by the
insurgent, was dispelled by Sen-
ator Knowland's endorsement of
Lipscomb, according to Prof.
Joseph E. Kallenbach.
The consensus of the profes-
sor's oninions was that the Re-

Prof. James Pollock summed it
up by saying, "I never see much
significance in special elections
like this one. Local conditions are
invariably determining and it
looks. to me as if the district sim-
ply followed its usual pattern."

Kinsey Advocates More
'Pettin'g', Panel Claims
The more petting, the better.
That, Prof. Robert Blood told a standing-room-only audience
yesterday, seems to be Alfred Kinsey's opinion.
Prof. Blood, Robert Schulze and Robert Hamblin all of the
sociology departient were members of a panel that discussed findings
on petting and pre-marital relations from Dr. Kinsey's latest book,
"Sexual Behavior in the Human Female."
The discussion was the fourth sociology colloquium of the semester.
Petting was defined by Kinsey as "any physical contact that
arouses excitement." Benefits cited by Kinsey as. resulting from
"heavy petting," which "has al-
ways taken place," werenbrought
lout by Schulze. (1) Petting over-
comes inhibitions, (2) petting
contributes to the choice of a
n 'llo ig h t spouse and (3) petting contributes
to relations in marriage.
Hamblin felt that Kinsey's def..
inition of petting "over general-
