New Flats
Ready Soon,

100 Apartments
Planned for '55
By JON SOBELOFF
The first occupants should be
moving into the University's pro-
posed new North Campus apart-
ments for married students with-
in less than a year, a University!
official estimated yesterday.
Francis C. Shiel, manager of
service enterprises, made the es-
timate at a Residence Halls Board
of Governors meeting, and added1
that the project should be com-
pletely finished by Jan. 1, 1955.
** *
THE 100 apartments, mostly one
bedrooms units with some "no
bedroom" and two bedroom types,
will be partly financed, the Uni-
versity hopes, by an already ap:
plied for 100 million dollar Fed-
eral Government loan.
Shiel also told the board that
there will probably be from 700
to 800 living units built on the
North Campus. in, the future.
Work on an addition to Couzens
Hall, including raising its dining1
capacity to 530 students, will
probably be begun before July 1,i
1954, when the nurses' residence
will become an official Univers-
ity Residence Hall, Sheil said.
Federal funds are also being
sought for the Couzens project.
Shiel estimated the addition would
cost $1,700,000.
The Board of Governors also
discussed the possibility of hold-
ing a meeting of the National
Students Association on cam-
pus late this summer.
The problem of providing super-
vision and service for 1000 stu-
dents in one of the residence halls
was discussed, and benefits to the
campus from the meeting were-
cited.
No action was taken on the pos-
sible NSA conclave, but Board
of Governors' chairman Acting
Dean of Students Walter B. Rea
said the matter, which was defer-
red for further administrative stu-
dy, will be acted on soon.

Rejects School
Freedom Plan
By BECKY CONRAD
In one of the longest meetings
in its history, the Graduate Stu-
dent Council last 'night rejected
by a 'vote of 20 to 11 an academic
freedom stand stating "the in-
structor is entitled to unlimited
freedom in conducting his re-
search and in discussing his field
in the classroom."
Drawn up by Council members
Jack Danielson, Charles Sleicher
and Al Hunting, the statement
said, "the chief instance of the
tendency to restrict student free-
dom at the University has been
the Lecture Committee." .

ALREADY endorsed by the Uni-
tarian Students Group, the state-
ment will be printed in a pam-
phlet issued by the Student Legis-
lature subcommission on Academic
Freedom.

A motion to bid up to $16,000
on a house at 806 East Kingsley
Mwas passed last night by the Inter-
Cooperative Council at a meetingj
which fell short of a quorum by'
10 persons.
The action, taken at an all-
membership meeting, was not of-
ficial, however, because the neces-
sary minimum of 60 members was
not present.
However, the motion can be le-
galized by a meeting of the Board
of Directors according to Jack Hil-
berry, '56A, ICC President.
The ICC's earlier bid of $15,000
was raised by another contending
party last week.f

$1,600 into pre-game "Spartan
Spirit' plans this weekend," Gunby
said in a letter to The Daily.
He pointed out that the "Spar-
tan Re-view" which will be held
at 9:30 p.m. today will take the
-bgest bite out of the 'student
tax-appropriated funds.
The show will, be held immed-
iately after an outdoor pep rally
at the band shell across the street
from the auditorium.
All University students in East

part of the hospitality program

Members of the Spartan Va:-

"M" Club members at a coffee
hour after the game tomorrow.
In Ann Arbor student leaders
felt that vocal student support-
will be necessary if the team is to
make a good showing in tomor-

Merritt Green, '56L, captain of
last year's team, and emcee of
today's rally set for 3:30 p.m.,
said he felt enthusiastic student
support would make members of
the team feel that they are re-
garded asan integral part of the
student body.
These feelings were seconded
by Martha Hill, '54, president of
Panhel, C. A. Mitts, '54, Inerfra-

SMITH ACT TRIAL:
Lautner Describes How CP Denounced Him

tc,

By MARK READER
Special To The Daily
DETROIT-Winding up seven days of testimony in the trial of six!
Michigan Communist leaders, government witness John Lautner yes-
terday described how the Party had denounced him as an "enemy!
agent" in the cellar of a house in Cleveland in 1950.
The lengthy session, marked by constant flare-ups between op-
posing lawyers also witnessed Federal Judge Frank A. Picard refuse!
to admit as government evidence a chart supposedly revealing the
organization of the Communist underground in the U.S.
JUDGE PICARD'S ruling came as an unprecedented move in the
government's Smith Act case against the Michigan CommunistsI
charged with conspiring to violent overthrow of the government. {
The identical chart has been a key part in the government'sJ
prosecution against Communist functionaries in New York, Pitts-
burgh and five other cities.
Over constant objections by defense counsel Ernest Goodman,;

leader, and Jack Kling, national Communist treasurer. Also present
were three other men who he did not know.
LAUTNER said first official word of his dismissal from the CP
came in the form of a news story appearing in the Daily Worker
of Jan. 17, 1950.
Earlier in the day Lautner claimed the Party had been in-
structed to go underground in 1948 and in June, 1949, he was
instructed "to make a survey in the party for 'ham' radio operators
who could send messages."
Radio apparatus obtained was supposed to be powerful enough
to send messages from New York to Albany and from there to Buffalo,!
he said.
Preceding this point the government attempted to introduce the
chart on the Communist underground. Goodman objected and Judge
Picard sustained the objection by saying "The government is taking'
t un
too much for granted."

pocxt
Blackford said that according
to Ralph Young, MSC athletics
director the University has given
its apbroval of the trophy.
William Present, Lansing jew-
eler, said the trophy was ordered
through him by the Governor. He
said the. trophy, a hand-carved
statue of Paul Bunyan will stand
eight feet high, including the ped-
estal, and cost about $1,400.
Present said the Governor "ask-
ed me to raise a certain sum in
Lansing toward the cost of the
trophy and said that soie of his
friends in Ann Arbor would also
contribute. The Governor plans
to contribute too," 'Present said.
GEORGE GUERRE, former MSC
football star and president of the
Central Michigan MSC Alumni
Club, said it had been suggested
that both the University and
Michigan State alumni would split
the cost with the Governor also
