Pearson Piles Up Law Suits, Laurels

Drew Pearson has been called
everything from a "chronic liar"
to "the most influential newspaper
man in the United States."
His daily column appears in 650
papers in each of the 48 states,
Japan, Latin America, India, the
Philippines, Hawaii, Guam and

A. Picard pointed out he would

Rumors floating around cam-
pus hold that four to six faculty
members here have received
subpoenas from the House group,
but no reports as yet have been
confirmed by the University, or
by Rep. Clardy. No University
students have reported receipts
In January, Rep. Clardy was in-
vited to the campus by the Student
Legislature Academic Freedom
Sub-Commission to debate with
Prof. Preston Slosson of the his-
tory department the merits of the
activities of his committee.
QUESTION of the proposed de-
bate was "Have recent legislative
investigations into alleged sub-
version contributed to the wel-
fare of the United States?
The Representative refused
the invitation to speak on the
"pro" side of the controversy
since it would be improper for
"a member of a committee about
to hold hearings in Michigan to
engage in a discussion about
that hearing before it is held."
-He claimed "the very wording
of the subject indicates a bias or
lack of knowledge."
Clardy went on to say that if the
Academic Freedom Sub-Commis-
Sion does not "recognize the fact
that there is subversion, I am
afraid it would do no good to dis-
cuss any phase of the subject" with
But this week, SL voted to per-
mit the Sub-Commission to ask a
representative of Clardy to debate
the subject with Prof. Slosson
sometime after the hearings.

name - calling and physical
threats. President Franklin D.
Roosevelt at one time called him
a "chronic liar," and Senator
Joseph McCarthy has labeled
him a "political terrorist and
character assassin"' and a "voice
of international communism."
Nor is there any love lost by the
fiery Pearson over the Senator
from Wisconsin. Pearson filed a
$5,100,000 slander suit ih March,
1951charging that McCarthy phy-
sically assaulted him and entered
into a conspiracy with others to
drive him out of business.
He accuses McCarthy of being
'a headline seeker' and a danger
to our democracy. "People think
McCarthy is discovering Commu-
nist spies, but he isn't.

victed spies in the government'

made his first speech. And they

fore McCarthy, Pearson, himself,
exposed a Canadian spy ring. "But
then I was criticized for being un-
fair to the Russians," he remark-
ed. "They were our friends then
and the information might upset
our relations with them."
Always in one kind of a law j
suit or another, Pearson set a
record for being in the biggest
case in the history of the United
.States. In 1938, Pearson and
Robert Allen wrote in their
column that Rep. Martin Sween-
ey of Ohio had opposed the ap-
pointment of Emerich Freed as
a federal district judge in Cleve-
land because Freed was a Jew.
Sweeney filed libel suits against
every paper in each of the 48 states
which carried the column. After
Sweeney lost in 20 states and the
case was brought up before the Su-
preme Court, he dropped the rest
of the charges.
BECAUSE of his dynamic radio
programs and columns, Pearson,
who is a Quaker, was called by
ex-President Herbert Hoover, "the
Fighting Quaker." This is a grave
insult to one of that faith, for the
Quakers are a peaceloving people
who are adverse to fights of any
Pearson retaliated by paying
Hoover, who is also a Quaker,
the compliment of calling him
"the Quaking Fighter."

Ancient and far-off countries
coupled with a history of American
crime are among the great variety
of exhibits being shown in the Uni-

YESTERDAY'S meeting was ar-
ranged by Council Director Alan
W. MacCarthy and was led by the
Chairman of the Council's Board,
of Directors Earl H. Cress.
Originally, the five-member
majority had planned to sub-
mit its recommendation to the
April meeting of the Council's
Board but it is probable that the
plan will not be submitted if the
same objective can be achieved
without formal amendment of
the Council's charter.

Yesterday's meeting also pro-
duced suggestions that an oppor-

dents to petition for the Board
positions, and that a panel of
names be submitted to President
Hatcher for final choice. Under
procedure used last fall, only two
names to fill as many positions
were sent to the President.
