Commission
Views State
Mental Units
Hospital Officials
Defend 'U' Plans
By GAYLE GREENE
Controversy over Michigan
mental facilities for children is be-
ing kindled again by a sharp blast
at the proposed University Neu-
ropsychiatric Unit to aid child
mental disorders.
The Michigan Mental Health
Commission is planning to renew
the fight for its own cottage type
hospital at Northville and oppose
University plans. In analysing the
inadequacy of University facili-
ties, the Commission has renewed
its accusation that the Neuropsy-
chiatric Unit will be used "pri-
marily for teaching and research"
} whereas the "Commission would
stress treatment above other con-
siderations."
TWO University Hospital ad-
ministrators sharply denied the
charges. "I don't think any hospi-
tal could have more of a service
function than ours," Dr. Ralph
Rabinovitch, chief of children's
services said. Both he and Dr.
Raymond Waggoner, Director of
the University's Institute agreed,
"You can't place one above the
other. We teach and do research
through service."
The doctors reiterated a de-
fense of the present 25-bed unit
saying they had accepted all re-
ferrals to the limits of capacity,
administered therapy, and re-
corded improvement in 75 per-
cent of the. cases. "With ten
thousand out patient visits a
year, I'd hardly call it a 're-
search unit'," Dr. Waggoner
said. "That's many times more
outpatients than are handled by
any single unit of any .other
state hospital."
"We are anxious and ready to
cooperate with the Mental'Health
Commission," he added, "as we are
deeply concerne with the mental
health of Michigan's children and
they ought to be too."
ONE OFFICIAL wondered why
the Commission kept bringing up
the same accusations since "they
are not seeking to replace our unit,
but rather to supplement it."
"I don't understand why they
nake a public issue out of it,"
he continued. "We have never
resorted to this type of name-
calling and senseless charges."
Dr. Waggoner and Dr. Rabino-
vitch felt that a prime advantage1
in combining training and re-
search with service is the student
attendent. Most of the counselors1
in University Hospital facilities'
are graduate students: physicians,!
medical students, clinical psychol-
ogists and public health majors.
t "As a result," Dr. Rabinovitch1
pointed out, "the average attend-
ant has an I.Q. of 130." He believes
this to be one of the reasons the
State Legislature is anxious to
have the children's mental health
unit at the -University.
* * *
WITH STUDENT personnel, the
hospital avoids the problem of
union restrictions, which is re-
portedly one of the factors in the
chaos uncovered at Wayne Gen-
eral Hospital and Infirmary.
"I wonder where they will get

their therapists," Dr. Waggoner
said. "They have never been able
to fully staff their adult unit at1

Author Fast
By DOROTHY MYERS
"Outside the borders of the
United States you cannot name a
great person who is not a member
dof the Communist Party," ac-
cording to author Howard Fast,
who spoke here yesterday at a
meeting sponsored by the Labor
Youth League.
Fast cited the Curies, Sergi Pro-
kofieff, Dmitri Shostakovitch'
Sean O'Casey and Pablo Picasso in
an attempt to -substantiate his
claim.
SPEAKING before 25 people
gathered off-campus in a privatej
home,rFast said "any university
consists of frightened people. That
you (the audience) should come
in an underground capacity, deny-
iy any meeting at all, is a fright-
ening commentary on what exists
today,' he added.
Terming himself, "the most
widely read writer on the face
of the earth," Fast asserted "I
am still forbidden to speak in a
public place in Ann Arbor. How-
ever, if Velde or McCarthy came
here, he claimed, they would be
granted the largest hall on cam-
pus.
SCommenting on his personal
history, the author said, "I have
considered myself for many years
a Marxist and came from' the
working class." For eight years I
have raised my voice and warned,
pleaded, shouted and wrote on this
"police state tyranny" and budding
totalitarianism that is turning
what is good into what is bad, and
vice verse, he continued.
"I saw the operation of this
machine of silence and intimida-
tion go into action," he said, ex-
plaining that publishers became
so unwilling to accept his books
that he had to publish them
*. * * .
IN A question period following
the author's address, Fast was ask-
ed why there is not complete free-
dom to travel from the Soviet Un-
ion.
In reply, the author, who said
that for four years he has been'
denied a passport to leave the
country, returned the' question,
"are not hundreds of Americans
not free to leave the United;
States?" This country is the only
nation in the area termed the
"Free World" that does restrict
passports, Fast said.
Talk on T.B SlatedEj

the National Tuberculosis Asso-7
ciation in Denver, Colorado will

School of Public Health on "A
Look at Tuberculosis Control" at
4 p.m. tomorrow in the School of;
Public Health Aud.

SOUNDINGS from a poll taken
this October showed these propor-
tions had not changed in the past;
year.
One out of five of the votesj
Eisenhower received came from
Democrats who crossed party
lines. Independent voters, also
went for Ike by a two-to-one
margin, the study revealed.
Between the two polls there wasI
a campaign, election and a turn-
over in Washington. Director of
the University Survey Research
Center Angus Campbell pointed
out, "If everyone voted the party
line, the GOP would go out of'
business."
** *
CAMPBELL noted that the de-
pression and FDR managed to
break loose some from the Re-;
publican camp who have now be-
come regular Democrats.
Motivations to vote, he ex-
plained, fall into three cate-
gories:
1. Is the potential voter strong-
ly identified with a party or
does he stand to gain from the
victory of a particular party?-
2. Is he stirred up over cer-
tain issues and see the election
as a means to do something
about them?
3. Do the candidates inspire
respect?
He indicated the "personal at-
traction of Ike outdistanced any-
thing the Democrats had to offer."
SECONDLY, voters moved to
the GOP issue position, he claim-
ed. Foreign policy, "quiescent in
1948," grew to a prominent stand
in 1952. General Eisenhower was'
able to do something about the
Korean action. Voters didn't view
Stevensona"as relevant to the
hwar," he said.
The Korean situation seemed
to illustrate a growing dissatis-
faction with American foreign
affairs, Campbell pointed out,
explaining "the population had
moved to an isolationist stand."
"Almost none of the switching
Democrats were as Republican on
issues as the old-line GOP fol-
lowers," according to Campbell.
They moved into a "middle posi-
tion," he explained.
* .' *
HOWEVER, in the South, they
took a position similar to regular
Republicans there. Southern swit-
ching Democrats supported Ike
and GOP policy stands.
Crucial problem with the poli-
ticians, according to Campbell,
is, "Will switching Democrats
stay with the Republicans?"
Although the Survey revealed 20
to 30 per cent of those interview-
ed, mentioned corruption in gov-
ernment, Korea, taxes and high
prices, only three per cent made
any reference to McCarthy and
Communism in America.

REPORTS in the Detroit Times
indicate that University students
were included in the group receiv-
ing subpoenas. However, Univer-
sity Vice-President Marvin L. Nie-
huss said last night "we have had
no information or indication from
the Clardy committee - that any
students have'been or will be call-
ed."
Other groups implicated in
the Times story were members
of labor unions and leaders of
alleged Communist front organ-
izations.
On campus a number of Labor
Youth League affiliates reiterated -
that they had not received sub-
poenaes. several of them made GEORGE CHIN NARRO

A total of 56 different religions
are represented by students en-

according to the results of a
census compiled by Lane 'Hall.
The 2.302 Catholic students on

and 1,874 members, respectively.
OTHER religious groups repre-i
