Pledged Aid
By Senator
Father Denies
Communist Ties
Senator Homer Ferguson and
the president of the Macomb
County Republican Club yesterday
pledged their aid to University
senior Milo J. Radulovich who
faces the loss of his Air Force re-
serve commission for "close asso-
ciation" with his father and sister
-both alleged Communists.
As the young physics major
picked up support in this quarter
his father, John Radulovich em-
phatically denied he was a Com-
munist but did say that he once
belonged to an organization later
labeled "subversive" by the govern-
* * *
RADULOVICH, a 26-year-old
veteran is scheduled to appear
before a three-man military board
at Selfridge Air Force Base ?Tues-
day to prove that contact with his
family has not made him useless
for government employ and that
he is not a "security risk."
According to Selfridge offi-
cials and Kenneth Sanborn,
Young Republican leader, Sen.
Ferguson has said: "If there is
any evidence the boy is not re-
ceiving a fair -hearing, I will take
the matter up with the Defense
Department immediately."
Reached by phone yesterday,
Radulovich once again pointed
out that he himself has not been
accused of being a Communist and
maintained that if he gets an ad-
verse ruling from the board his
entire future as a physicist would
be ruined.
. Contrary to previous reports,
Radulovich said "I will not at-
tempt to involve any members of
the University in my case." He
claimed that sufficient offers for
affidavits from friends vouching
to his character eliminated need
for calling University personnel.

PRESIDENT Harlan H. Hatch-
er refused to comment on the in-
cident yesterday and a polling of
the physics department also turn-
ed up the same negative results
-the feeling generally being that
not enough was known of both
sides of the case.
However, among those who did
comment Prof. Kenneth Bould-
ing- of the economics depart-
ment said "It is outrageous if a
man can't see his father and

Dulles Asks!
From AFL
Cites Union Blast
At Soviet Myth
ST. LOUIS-(A)-Secretary of
State Dulles said yesterday free
worker organizations "help might-
ily in the quest for peace" by ex-
posing the Communist "workers
paradise" as a myth.
The AFL's annual convention
gave Dulles an enthusiastic ova-
tion after he praised the AFL for
having "done more than any other
single body" to picture slave con-
ditions behind the Iron Curtain.
* * *
"IN THIS matter," Dulles said,
"there should be closer co-opera-
tion between us. You have not al-
ways received the official support
and backing you deserve."
The warm reception given
Dulles was in marked contrast
to the restrained and polite ap-
plause delegates gave to Vice
President Nixon Wednesday.
Nixon denied President Eisen-
hower had broken a promise, as
some AFL leaders claim, to sup-
port union-wanted changes in
the Taft-Hartley labor law.
The contrast underlined the
AFL's wholehearted support of ad-
ministration foreign policies but
bitter opposition to many of the
administration's domestic pro-

DULLES received perhaps his
greatest applause from delegates
when he said this country's for-
eign policy can best succeed if
supported by the American people
generally and by both political
"The extremely violent char-
acter of the Bolshevik regime,"
Dulles said, "destroyed not only
the reactionary elements within
Russia, but also the moderate
"In the process it has largely
reproduced for the workers the
conditions which prevailed under
the czars.
THE SITUATION is different in
this country, Dulles went on, where
the inter-play of free forces have
led to "immense" social and eco-
nomic gains.
He said a worker in New York
City can earn enough to buy a
pound of butter in 27 minutes of
work, but it takes the Moscow
worker six hours.
"I know that the persistent
influence Qf communism is a
matter of great concern to the
free labor unions and that the
AFL is taking the lead in com-
batting this situation," Dulles
Another member of President
Eisenhower's Cabinet, Secretary of
Welfare Oveta Culp Hobby, told
the convention she hoped Congress
will tackle administration pro-
posals to broaden social security
coverages as one of its first mat-
ters of business next January.

Vietminhese Encircled
KESAT, Indochina-UP)-French Union troops encircled more
than 5,000 Vietminh soldiers amid flooded rice fields north of the
Red River yesterday.
It was the biggest drive yet in a campaign to keep the Com-
munist-led enemy from getting set for a fall offensive.
Five infantry spearheads closed in a big area northeast of
Hung Yen, a guerrilla-infested town of 4,000 in the Red River
Delta 30 miles southeast of Hanoi that the French call the Viet-
minh's "ambush capital."

Move To Lev
Dues of Dime
Tabled by1IHC
A propocal to assess every Men's
Quadrangle resident ten cents dues
was tabled yesterday at the first
Inter-House Council meeting of
the semester.
The motion to levy the dime
dues indirectly on the 2900 men
and 350 women in the quads, by
assessing house councils met with
mixed reactions before it was de-
cided to postpone the vote until
next week so IHC members would
have a chance to discuss the move
in their houses.
Proponents of the move said
present general funds were only
about enough to pay for printing
the min'utes for ten weeks. Op-
ponents claimed vvenue from the
I-Hop, slated for Saturday, Oct.
10, and a tentatively scheduled
performance by the, hypnotist Pol-
gar, should make dues unneces-

KOROWICZ'S cool, mater-of-
fact description of recent life be-
hind the Iron Cureain-a life he
described as misery, slavery, a
"real inferno"-was broadcast by
the Voice of America and Radio
Free Europe to his homeland and
to most of the Communist world.
All hopes for peace and free-
dom, he testified, rest with the
United States.
"Now I can speak the truth.In
Poland, the truth is forbidden. No
one dares to speak the truth. All
life becomes a living lie," he said.
KOROWICZ who walked out of
the Polish UN delegation last week
to seek haven under the American
flag, said only 6 to 7 per cent of
his people are Reds-and not
more than 2 per cent of Polish
voters would support the Commu-
nist party in a free election.
But any workers' revolt, such
as recently flared in- East Ger-

downed in the blood of the Po-

is that Lavrenty P. Beria, purged
chief of the Russian secret police,
was executed even before his oust-

The Russians have no real in-

Faculty Opinion Differs
On .Dunham Dismissal
Faculty opinion differed sharply yesterday on the recent dismissal
of Prof. Barrows Dunham of the philosophy department of Temple
University for 'refusing to answer questions put to him by a congres-
sional committee.
. Prof. Preston Slosson of the history department emphatically de-
clared, "Anyone who refuses to answer questions is a fool." He added
he had no respect for what was a foolish action-a refusal to testify au-
tomatically throws suspicion upon the witness.
* * * *
BUT PROF. SLOSSON said that in a case of this nature, dis-
missal should not be based only on the witnesses silence but that his
usefulness to the University should be considered. He also remarked
that officials should study the motives that prompted the stand.
Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the economics department coin-
mented that the dismissal action was "very deporable." He said
although he had not examined the details of the case it looked
"as if due process of law had been disregarded" and therefore
"important questions of procedure were involved."
DEAN JAMES ROBERTSON of the literary college held the same
opinion as Prof. Slosson on Dnuham's refusal to testify. "It is relative-
ly unwise for a man to plead the fifth amendment, more is to be gained
by putting the facts on the table as Prof. Williams of Michigan State
has done," he said.
