To End 'Defects


ST. LOUIS--President Dwight
D. Eisenhower and Vice-President
Nixon yesterday frankly told the!
American Federation of Labor
that the Administration's program
would not be substantially altered
to suit labor's demands.

that he would send recommenda-
tionLS to Congress in January to
correct a "number of defects" in
the Taft-Hartley Labor Law.
He added, however, that he
felt passage of the law brought
a "substantial contribution to
the quest for sounder labor-
management relations."
According to the United Press.
the President's message was read
to the convention by Nixon, who
first noted to the delegates that
the "Administration may differ
with you on specific legislative
programs-on the Taft-Hartley
Act. tax policy and fiscal policy.

Heated debate arose over adop-
tion of the stand, which contains
the phrase: "we deplore the meth-
ods employed in current investi-
gations of American educational
institutions as extremely unwise,

as well as outside academic coml-
munities, an atmosphere of appre-
hension and distrust that is doing
untold harm to the cause of free
inquiry far outweighing their pos-
sible benefits,."

physics major Milo J. Radulovich will place in jeopardy more
than the Air Force reservist's military status. If, as all cir
cumstances seem to indicate, the veteran is expelled from the
service, a prospective career in government work will b
abruptly ended. The stigma of "security risk" which will be
attached to the student's honorable discharge under present
conditions blocks his job chances even though his persona
loyalty is not questioned.
The Air Force is charging Radulovich with maintaining "
close and continuing relationship" with alleged pro-Commun.
ists - his father and sister. Since this relationship, according
to all available evidence, consists of infrequent family visits
without political consequence, the Air Force charge is open
to serious question.

nation to the point of discouraging vital government person.

Fighting for his career as a
physicist, University senior Mlo
J. Radulovich prepared yesterday
to defend himself and his Air Force
reserve commission against charges
that he is a "security risk" because
of his fathers and sister's alleged
Communist activities.
The :26-year-old veteran must
appear before a three-man At
Force board Tuesday to prove that
association with these members
of his family have not rendered
him useless to work on classified
I government projects because of
security reasons.
His own loyalty is not under

c said, "there wouldn't be any
sense going on in physics it
