Refuses To Name
Those To Testify
Student-Administration Conference
Will, Be Called To Study Problem
By HARRY LUNN
Daily Managing Editor
Amplifying an earlier announcement that "a number" of persons
connected with the University have been subpoenaed for Detroit
hearings of the House Un-American Activities Committee, Rep. Kit
Clardy (R-Mich.) told The Daily last night "it is entirely possible
that no one will be called to testify."
"We subpoena, a great many individuals and question only a
few," he emphasized. "It will probably turn out that a relatively
small number from this area will be called."
DELAYED BY THF trial of six alleged Communists in Detroit's
Federal Court and the Harry Dexter White case hearings in Wash-
ington, the Clardy sub-committee plans hearings in Detroit, Lansing
and Flint shortly after the first of the year.
Rep. Clardy was adamant that the sub-committee will not
"lend itself to any direct smear attack on University faculty,
students or employes."
There will be "no attack on the loyalty or patriotism of the stu-
dents, faculty members or employes other than a few individuals who
may turn up.
"And I want to stress the word 'may' in that statement," he
continued in reiterating that neither the number nor names of those'
subpoenaed would be released until the hearings unless individuals
identified themselves.
UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT Harlan H. Hatcher said last night
he had not been given any information as to who had been sub-
poenaed.
The President announced he would call a special meeting of
students and administrators to work out methods of de'aling with
student cas'es that might come up in reference to the hearings.
Lee Fiber, '54, chairman of the Joint Judiciary Counci, com-
mended the idea of an early meeting. There had been some concern
over possible by-passing of Joint Judiciary authority in the event
that students were implicated in' .

State Eyes Bowl;

'M' Rally in 4th Falls Short, Spartans
Win Fourth Straight Over Wolverines
By PAUL GRENBERG
Associate Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-An embattled Michigan football team, trying
to win its first game from Michigan State in four years, bowed to
superior Spartan manpower and talent, 14-6 here yesterday.
By virtue of its victory, Biggie Munn's classy club moved into
first place in the Big Ten standings-and incidentally, the race to
the Rose Bowl. State has a five won .one lost record and has com-
pleted its first Western Conference schedule.

league game remaining.
The Wolverines, absorbing
their third conference defeat as
opposed to two victories, gave
MSC a jolt in the fourth quar-
ter. when State miscues gave
them one touchdown and set
up another one. But some weird
play-calling on the part of the
Wolverines coupled with fine
Spartan defensive work put
Michigan'sfire out and put the
game in the MSC win column.
Munn's charges play'ed a con-
servative, steady game -- they
turned on the power, when they
needed it and held consistently
when Michigan had the ball. The.
Spartans ground out two long
touchdown drives, one covering
89 yards early in the second per-

NEW YORK - ( - Former
President Truman said yesterday
he will "tell all the facts about
the Harry Dexter White case in an

committee investigations.
The concern arose in part over
the sidetracking of Joint Judiciary
last week when University stu-
dents were temporarily suspended
for painting up the Michigan State
campus.
It was discovered that the
Dean of Students office has
discretionary authority to take
disciplinary action in emergency
cases..
When the House Committee
made its last local appearance in
Detroit in the spring of 1952 a
Wayne University co-ed, Lorraine
Faxon Meisner wvas suspended by
former president David D. Henry
for her "un-cooperative" attitude.
A storm of protest arose over
the action, but the Wayne Council
of Deans later expelled Mrs. Meis-
ner saying she "spoke in a manner
disrespectful to a properly con-
stituted government body."
No University student or faculty
member was called to testify dur-
ing that sequence of hearings.
* * ' * -
THE UNIVERSITY faculty re-
cently strengthened its demotion
and dismissal procedure in the
event that public interest might
make quick action on a faculty
member necessary.
Proposed by the Faculty Sen-
ate and approved by the Re-
gents ;last month, the new pro-
cedure is operative in event of
loyalty charges against faculty
members and limits the time a
hearing may be requested from
20 to five days. ,
It gives the President authority
to initiate dismissal or demotion
cases in that event, with review

might form a basis for current
hearings.
Mrs. Baldwin designa'ted the lo-
cal cells as "A.A. Town,' "Ralph
Nefus" and "Hal Dane."
At that time a University fac-
ulty member said the activities
of the "Nefus" club were known
to the University and the group
had not been prevented from us-
ing Angel Hall classrooms be-
cause it was considered a non-
dangerous student group.
"A.A. Town" was also known
though never associated with the
University, the faculty source said,
but there was no knowledge of the
"Hal Dane" group.
ON CAMPUS a number of La-
bor Youth League members con-
tacted said they had not been
subpoenaed and had no knowl-
edge of anyone who had been.
The Labor Youth League .and
a number of students were nam-
ed in a special Daily series by
Zander Hollander, '53, last Jan-
uary as carrying on the main
Communist "Front" activity on
campus.
Rep. Clardy referred to the se-
ries last night as "informative"
and said he was sure it must have
been helpful to his committee.
He declined to comment, howev-
er, on whether any LYL members
would be called to testify in the
Detroit hearings or whether the
organization itself will be involved.
The LYL has carried on local
activities since its direct antece-
dent, Michigan Youth for Dem-
ocratic Action, was banned from
the' campus by former President
Alexander G. Ruthven, and it con-

Michigan State grid contest. 1
Contrary to many official fears,1
there was no trouble on the Spar-

spirit of both the State student

a fumble on State's four-yard line.
The game drew, however, 52,-
3T4 fans, the second largest crowd
ever to see a football battle at
Macklin Field and the largest
to see th'e Spartans play the
Wolverines in East Lansing. In
addition, an estimated 60 mil-;

treated to an afternoon of hard-
fought football.
In .contrast with the leth-
argy in the stands, the 146 mem-

pre-game and halftime shows to
make a rout of the battle of the;

mounted as the Spartans were
slowly nearing their second score.
At times the fans were so quiet
that the Michigan Band often
struck up a number to create a
semblance of noise.

AFTER THE game, the fans
slowly and quietly emptied the
stadium. As the crowd was filing
out, the public address announcer
gave the score of the Illinois-Wis-

more cheering than anything that
had happened here.
One thing missed by Ann Ar-
boriles was the traditional dog
on the field. Nor did the =an-
nouncer give the score of the
slippery Rock State Teachers

Taken altogether, the week-end
in East Lansing was unusually un-
