he tried to switch the investigation

to the Air Force and the Navy.
Sen. McClellan, cross-examin-
ing Stevens, said the Army sec-
retary could have granted a di-
rect commission to McCarthy
aide G. David Schine but re-
fused to do so.
"The implication is here," said
the stern-voiced Sen. McClellan,j
"that you were trying to buy off
this committee, the Senate inves-
tigations subcommittee from in-
vestigating the Army."
BEFORE Stevens could reply,
Sen. McCarthy heatedly contended
Sen. McClellan was making a
"completely improper and unfair"
suggestion that he--McCarthy--
"could be bought off."
Sen. McClellan snapped back
at Sen. McCarthy: "You can
think anything you want."
"This chairman," said Sen. Mc-,

lar chairman though he's stepped
down for these hearings, "has

Jenkins suggested the Army sec-

"tender" toward Schine in the
hope of pleasing Sen. McCarthy{
and getting the investigation of
the Army called off-or, as the
lawyer put it, head off "this three-
headed monster you say was about

statement at the conference, but
it obviously was meant for the

At present no sorority has a bias
clause and there are only 13 frater-
nities left still condoning discrim-
inatory practices.
Unlike the attempts to remove
bias clauses here, Minnesota has
never considered setting a time
limit to force organizations into
compliance with its system.
Consequently the University of
Minnesota president has never
been pressed into making a deci-
sion on the issue. University pres-
idents Alexander Ruthven and
Harlan Hatcher vetoed Student

Prof. Carver's work for the Air
Force consisted of shortening the
time needed in computing a
plane's geographical position by
celestial methods.
During World War II the time
required by a navigator to deter-
mine his position amounted to
twenty minutes. By working out
new mathematical theories and
bette' methods of computation,
Prof. Carver has reduced this time
to only 10 seconds.
These quicker and more efficient
methods of navigation are report-
edly invaluable to jet pilots.
