Views on Probes
Two on Harvard Faculty Discuss
Traditional Concepts of Freedom
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This article is based on an interview with Profs.
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. and Zechariah Chafee, Jr. at Harvard University.)
At Harvard one senses the same freedom of thought and sees the
same relentless search for knowledge that has always been Harvard.
Also apparent is a bond of faith between administration and stu-
dent body, which was aptly expressed by one student, who said, "we
trust the administration's judgment and feel confident that we are
in capable hands."

WHAT ARE the reactions of the professors toward the many
problems arising from the recent Congressional investigations?
Prof. Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., and Prof. Zechariah Chafee, Jr.,
prominent on the Harvard faculty, felt that legally the Fifth

Dorm Board
OK's Judic
Enabling Act
Unanimous approval of enabling
legislation for the Inter - House
Council Judiciary was given yester-
day by the Residence Halls Board
of Governors.
The action fills a gap left by the
IHC' constitution approved last
year which gave-its Judiciary orig-
inal but not appellate jurisdiction
in cases involving violations of
Residence Halls rules.
* * *
Roger Kidston, '56L, the proce-
dure was formulated to provide
the most expedient and just way
for men in residence halls to have
their cases handled.
Under the new procedure the
IHC Judiciary will have appel-
late jurisdiction in all cases
brought before house and quad-
rangle judicial councils.
Exceptions to this procedure can
be made in cases where a student
accused of a violation who doesn't
want a hearing before the IHC
group may, with the certification
of the IHC Judiciary, appeal his
case directly to Joint Judiciary
after an initial hearing by the
house or quad judicial council.
The new set up further pro-
vides that in other cases the IHC
Judiciary for good cause may
waive its right to hear an ap-
peal by certifying the record of
the case to Joint Judic for final
In setting out the purposes of
the legislation it was pointed out
that "lines of jurisdiction and ap-
peal need to be clarified in order
that the Judicial Council may pro-
ceed with its business and so that
the IHC Judiciary will be a more
effective body."
Other business in the meeting
included progress reports on IHC
and Assembly Association by
Kidston and Marilyn Gordon, '54.
Offiucial Says,
U.S., China
Holding Talks
State Department said yesterday
it has started "informal discus-
sions" with the Chinese Commu-
nists to determine whether a for-
mula for resuming Korean peace
talks can be-found.
These talks are being carried
forward "through intermediaries"
r at Panmunjom, it said. The inter-
mediaries were not identified.
* * *
PRESS Officer Henry Suydam,
who disclosed this, said Special
Ambassador Arthur Dean, is ready
to return to Korea if a renewal of
talks can be arranged.
Suydam said representatives
of the United States and its Ko-
rean War allies discussed "var-
ious formulas" for resuming
talks at a meeting at the State
Department Monday.
The United Nations-Communist
talks were broken off a month ago.
Dean dropped them with a pro-
test that the Reds had accused the
United States of perfidy.
7 He demanded that the Com-
munists retract an accusation
that American authorities had
ploted with President Syngman
Rhee of South Korea to release
anti-Communist prisoners.
In Seoul, meanwhile, the 8th
Army is getting set for "any even-

"A man's duty is to cooperate
with his government," elaborat-
ed Prof. Chafee. "This can be
compared to the way we pay
taxes even though we do not
agree with all the ways the
money is spent.
"The general principle," the pro-
fessor of law continued, "would be
to encourage everyone to appear
and testify. In the exceptional case
when the person has special rea-
sons which may perhaps justify his
silence, then that person should
have a lawyer and be guided by his
"If a person refuses to testify
the university officials should
judge each case on its own merits.
We must remember," he pointed
out, "that the use. of the Fifth
Amendment does not necessarily
imply that the person is guilty. For
legally the person can use it if he
feels that what he might say would
by circumstance imply guilt."
Prof. Chafee gave the example
of a suspect for murder who is
innocent but is the owner of the
murder weapon. Legally he could
refuse to answer any questions
concerning that weapon. This
would force the investigators to
find other sources of informa-
tion, creating a situation which
might lead to conclusions based
on circumstantial evidence and
,perhaps on insufficient evidence.

Queen Forgot,
To Sign Out
Chosen "College Queen of the
State of Michigan" in a national
beauty contest, Rosaline Sapping-
ton, '56,. may be in trouble with
administrative officials for fail-
ing to sign out before she left for
Miami yesterday.
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
commented, "The literary college
-has no official statement as to
Rosaline's whereabouts. Nor has
her residence hall any official no-
tification that she has left."
Miss Gracia Van Daff, assist-
ant house director of Mosher
Hall, said that Miss Sappington
had talked to dormitory officials
and that'her failure to sign out
"really didn't mean much."
Before she left Miss Sappington
told a Daily reporter that she had
notified all of her professors and
had been excused by them.

shots, many in sensational style
as time after time he thwarted the
big guns of the Detroit attack.
Willard Ikola performed ably
in the nets during the first per-
iod and Bill Lucier did a fine
job in the middle period, even
though the scoring column
might indicate otherwise. Lu-
cier virtually faced the firing

point-blank shots one right af-

George Chin provided the big-

Pella, who took over as Italy's
interim government chief 4 2
months ago, quit yesterday in the
wake of growing differences with-
in his own Christian Democrat
The 51-year-old Premier hand-
ed his resignation to President
Luigi Einaudi following a 20-min-
ute emergency meeting of his min-
Adolfo de Nicola, Einaudi's sec-
retary, said Pella's resignation will
not become effective until a new
government is sworn in.
The resignation came as a
thunderbolt to this nation, which
enjoyed stable government from
the end of World War II until last
June's elections. Pella had been ex-
pected to shake up his Cabinet and
continue in the premiership.
Pella's Cabinet, which won the
support of the Monarchist party,
carried on smoothly until last
month when he ran into trouble
with his Christian Democrat sup-
porters. Many of them objected
to the tieup with the Monarchists.

Picard Cuts'

A ccusationt
DETROIT-(P)-Federal Judge
Frank A. Picard yesterday cut
short a defendant's statement to'
the jury in the Smith Act trial of
six Michigan Communist leaders.
All are accused of teaching and
advocating violent overthrow of
the government.
THE JUDGE interrupted Thom-
as D. Dennis Jr., educational dir-
ector of the party, after he had
read only a few pages of a 25-
page statement. Dennis described
the case as a "political trial",and
the defendants as "spokesmen for
the American working man and
the Negro people."
Judge Picard broke in:
"This is not a rich man's
court or a poor man's court-
get that!"
Judge Picard ordered Dennis to
sit down and confer with Ernest
Goodman, counsel for three of
the defendants - William Allan,
Philip Schatz and Mrs. Helen Al-
lison Winter-who already had
made his statement to the jury.
Saul L. Wellman, chairman of
the Michigan Communist party,
who is defending himself,then be-
gan to read his own statement.

made his statement at the open-
ing of the trial.
WELLMAN declared the trial
was an attempt "to subvert our

Nettled by Wellman's remarks

Fred W. Kaess:

remarks stricken from the record
before permitting to proceed with
his statement. The -judge inter-
rupted him 24 times during his
address and ordered him to quit
making political speeches.
Dennis was permitted to resume
his opening statement. He began
talking about relations between
Negroes and whites in the United

this court a forum of any kind

defense motion for a directed ver-
di t of acquittal. The court said:
"The evidence now shows that
the Communist party of the Unit-
ed States believes in Marxism-
Leninism and there is evidence
that Marxism-Leninism means the
overthrow of the government by
force and violence and that these
defendants taught and advocated
Marxism - Leninism at various
times. They did more than just
attend various schools."

to these items:
