McCarthy Aide
'Doctors' Photo
Juliana Denies Intent To 'Deceive';
Stevens Reviews Monmouth Issue
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - A McCarthy subcommittee aide took full re-
sponsibility yesterday for a hotly controversial cut-down photograph
in the McCarthy-Pentagon hearings.
Climaxing a week-long row, before television cameras, over the
picture, Investigator James N. Juliana testified:
1) He supplied the inquiry with a Nov. 17, 1953, photograph of
Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens side by side with Pvt. G.
David Schine-after ordering the deletion of an Air Force colonel
who was in the picture as originally taken.
2) He did so because he understood the man running the hear-

Leslie Says
Racial Bias
Dimn1ishing
Can Easily Place
All in 'U' Homes
By DEBRA DURCHSLAG
"We are closer to being able to
place girls in League Houses, re-
gardless of race or religion, than
we have ever been before," accord-
ing to Elizabeth A. Leslie, admin-
istrative assistant in the Office of
the Dean of Women.
Mrs. Leslie added that she can-
not remember anything but a co-
operative attitude on the part of
house directors toward taking in
Negro girls.
* * *
THE QUESTION of discrimina-
tion in League Houses was raised
Thursday night, when two Negroes
were barred from remaining in
the League House at 1811 Washte-
naw after they went to pick up
their white dates.
While accepting all University
regulations for women students,
the director of a League House,
according to Mrs. Leslie, has all
the rights of a private individual
in his own house. This right ex-
tends to her acceptance of girls
and their behavior in her home.
One League House that has
solved discrimination in its own
way is the inter-racial and inter-
national House of Mrs. A. W.
Baker at 725 Church. Established
on a non-sectarian basis in 1945,
this League House has operated
with girls from all over the world
living together.
"Frankly I'm in favor of having
all types of girls living together,"
says Mrs. Baker, "and the Univer-
sity affords a wonderful opportun-
ity for it." Mrs. Baker added that
no restriction is placed on either
the type of girls at her house nor
their friends.
OTHER DIRECTORS of League
Houses questioned yesterday ex-
pressed varying opinions on the
question of social relationships be-
tween Negro and white students.
Although few League Houses in-
clude Negro girls except during
the summer months, many added
that they had received no appli-
cations from Negro girls.
A large number of League
Houses function primarily as
sorority annexes. Reports from
these houses indicated the ab-
sence of any dating between
white and Negro students.
Running her League House as a
sorority annex, Mrs. Grace Vogt of
536 Elm, commented that she "had
Isituationalthough she did not
approve of it."
Draft Exam
To Be Given
The Special College Qualifica-
tion Test will be given May 20 on
campus and is open to students
who have previously failed to take
a draft deferment exam.

the Nov. 19 or April 22 test but
failed to take it for reasons beyond

Cohn, wanted a picture of Schine
and Stevens only.

HOTLY, Juliana, a former FBI
agent, denied any intention to
"deceive" or "trick" the Senate in-
vestigators.
In the wake of this testimony
about a photo which the Army
side denounced as "doctored,"
Secretary Stevens returned to
the witness stand for more cross-
examination on one of the ma-
jor points at issue: Did he try to
squelch McCarthy's investiga-
tion of alleged subversives at Ft.
Monmouth, N.J.?
Stevens acknowledged he once
sounded out Sen. McCarthy on
the posibility of removing Maj.
Gen. Kirke Lawton as commander
of Ft. Monmouth - specifically,
that he asked Army Counsel John
G. Adams to find out if the sena-
tor would make a "public issue" of
Lawton's removal.
The Army secretary said the an-
swer he got from Adams was that
"Sen. McCarthy would not be
pleased."
* * *
THERE WERE these other de-
velopments as the hearings recess-
ed for the weekend:
1.)' Reports circulated that the
White House was trying quietly to
get the hearings ended quickly.
2.) Sen. McCarthy sharply pro-
tested calling witnesses "out of
order"-that is, quizzing his sub-
committee staff members about the
photo before cross-examaination
of Stevens was completed. He ac-
cused the Army side of "stalling,"
and declared he will "make every
effort" to resume his place on the
subcommittee if this sort of thing
continues.
U' Day Today,
Tours Planned
Approximately 1500 high school
and junior college students will
visit the University campus today
as participants in the annual Uni-
versity Day.
Designed to afford an oppor-
tunity to high school and junior
college students from Michigan
and Ohio to get a good look at
campus life, University Day is
sponsored jointly by the Union
Student Offices and the Admis-
sions office.
The Day's program will include
a general meeting in the Rack-.
ham Bldg., tours of the campus,
mock lectures, a visit by each stu-
dent to his chosen school, visits to
the Residence Halls, fraternities,
and sororities, and a mixer at the
Union. Several schools and col-
leges of the University have plan-
ned open houses for the day.

Identification
Of Teacher
Kept Secret
Brandon Lauds
Frank Testimony
By JIM DYGERT
A University faculty member
testified yesterday before a sec-
ret executive session of the House
Un-American activities subcom-
mittee in Detroit.
Although the Detroit Times re-
ported him to be a former mem-
ber of the Communist Party, Rep.
Kit Clardy (R) of Lansing, chair-
man of the subcommitte, last night
refused to confirm or deny the re-
port.
CLARDY DECLINED to identify
the faculty member, or the other
ex-Communist who testified. He
also failed to distinguish the wit-
ness' status on the University fac-
ulty, restating his committee's
policy of releasing no information
on those whom it subpoenaed. In-
formation, he said must come
from the persons themselves.
Director of University Rela-
tions Arthur rL. Brandon also
refused to comment on the iden-
tity of the witness. "Such infor-
mation would have to come from
the person himself," he said.
On the testimony given in sec-
ret session, Brandon commented
that it is "fortunate that the testi-
mony was given willingly. I hope
that anyone else from the Univer-
sity who may have been subpoen-
aed will be as frank with the com-
mittee." He declined to confirm
or deny reports that members of
the University faculty had been
called.
Clardy has been holding secret
executive sessions this week in
which cooperative witnesses have
been interviewed. When contacted
by phone at 7:40 p.m. yesterday, he
was interviewing a witness. How-
ever no witnesses will be called
into the executive session today,
according to Clardy. Public hear-
ings are scheduled to begin Mon-
day.
* * -*
THE SECRET interviews give
the committee time to check on
names mentioned by the witnesses,
Clardy said. The committee could
then strike from the testimony
any name which would be subject
to unjustified publicity if brought
out unexpectedly at the hearings,
according to Clardy.
The Lansing representative
added that it was "very doubt-
ful" that witnesses called into
executive sessions would testify
again at the public hearings.
Some testimony, however, will
be used, he said.
In answer to rumors that only
certain groups, supposedly patri-
otic groups, would be admitted to
the hearings, Clardy emphasized
that admittance to the small
courtroom in the Federal Bldg. in
Detroit would be on a "first come;
first served" basis.
He said, however, "An effort
would be made to accommodate
a few people who requested spots
at the hearings quite a while ago."
CLARDY ALSO revealed yes-
terday that three or four Detroit
teachers subpoenaed to appear be-
fore the committee had jointly
contracted counsel to advise them
at the hearings. Clardy said that
the right of counsel would not be
denied witnesses.

Ed Shaffer, Grad., one of two
University students subpoenaed,
refused to confirm reports that
he had obtained a lawyer for the
hearings.
Myron Sharpe, Grad., summon-
ed to appear along with Shaffer
before the committee in Lansing
May 10, is also seeking counsel.
Amid attacks on the committee,
its methods, and the motives be-
hind its investigations, two Wayne
University faculty members and

PROBE AFTERMATH:
Bill Proposed To End FHA Scandals

The Senate Banking Committee
announced yesterday that it plans
to submit a new housing law de-
signed to eliminate a reoccurance
of racketeering and scandals
which it has uncovered in its two
week probing of the Federal Hous-
ing Administration.
The committee also intimated
that it will tighten up some of the
services of the FHA, eyeing par-
ticularly the program of govern-
ment loans for home repairs.
*j *

The Senator's remark was no
doubt prompted by the fact that
the Committee heard testimonies
revealing that some of these home
repair loans were used for tennis
courts, pig pens, television aerials
and even alimony.
Another Eisenhower plan that'
appears jeopardized by the revela-]
tion of FHA scandals is a pro-
posal to extend 100 per cent FHAI
insurance on $7,000 homes for
slum dwellers.

that a letter from Housing and

refrain from extending benefits to
program builders who allegedly'
participated in undesirable prac-
tices, went unheeded.
Moreover, the committee has
