The Faculty
Suspensions
THE SUSPENSION of three faculty mem-
bers by President Hatcher yesterday-
a temporary action "without prejudice to
the final action in their cases"-is not sur-
prising and may not be entirely unjustified.
If, by refusing to answer questions of the
Clardy Committee, the three faculty mem-
bers have "raised a question about their
competence as teachers," they have by no
means answered this question merely by
relying on their Constitutional rights.
President Hatcher's statement makes clear
that the suspension is made "pending a
thorough investigation by the University."
In more reasonable times, the temporary
suspension might not have been justified.
The University could then have taken its
time and deliberated fully on the merits of
these men as teachers, before taking any ac-
tion. But these are not reasonable times.
President Hatcher, faced with the necessity
of "doing something" to avoid compromising
the reputation of this midwestern state uni-
versity in the minds of a not-too-reasonable
public did the best he could in a difficult
situation.
It is assumed the suspension represents
merely the first step in a fair and judi-
cious investigation and review by the ad-
ministration and the special faculty Sen-
ate subcommittee set up for just such a
situation.
The suspended teachers are all apparently
well qualified academically-their experi-
ence, the testimony of their colleagues and
students, and the various honors they have
received all attest to that.
It is hoped that the proper University
agencies will act as quickly as possible to
clear these men of any undeserved sus-
picion which now attaches to them, to
evaulate fairly their fitness as teachers,
and to restore them to the unqualified
espect of the community unless they have
clearly demonstrated their unfitness to
teach.
Failure to answer questions is by no means
a sufficient reason for overthrowing the sol-
id reputations of these men. There is no rea-
son to doubt that the faculty members who
sit in judgment on these cases will require
more damaging evidence of unfitness than
this to warrant their recommending action
against their colleagues.

The McCarthy Problem
And Mr. Jenkins

By WALTER LIPPMANN
LAST WEDNESDAY Mr. Jenkins found
himself face to face with the fundamen-
tal issue of the McCarthy problem, and miss-
ed the point entirely. As a result of his in-
comprehension-surely for no other reason-
he advised the Chairman of the Committee,
of which he is the counsel, to make a ruling
If it is sustained and becomes a precedent,
it is a license to lawlessness and an invita-
tion to anarchy. Mr. Jenkins upheld Sen.
McCarthy's claim that government employ-
ees, including officers of the Army, are not
bound by their oath or by the laws or by any
ties of loyalty to their superiors and to the
service if-in their own private and secret
opinion-it would be a good thing to break
the law.
Mr. Jenkins could not have realized
what he was, doing. For the doctrine that
men may break their oath and violate the
law secretly-if it suits their private con-
victions-is the very principle of disloyal-
ty. It was in accord with this very prin-
ciple-that their own consciences were su-
perior to the laws of the land-that Fuchs
and Allen Nunn May and the Rosenbergs
acted.
For the benefit of those who have not fol-
lowed closely this tortuous and badly con-
ducted hearing, what happened was this.
Sen. McCarthy produced what he said was
a copy of a letter written in 1951 by Mr. J.
Edgar Hoover to Gen. Belling of the Army
Intelligence. As a matter of fact, Mr. Hoover
never wrote the letter of which Sen. Mc-
Carthy's paper pretended to be a copy, to
which his name was signed though in fact
he never signed it. It is established that this
document was fabricated by or at least with
the collaboration of an officer in the mili-
tary intelligence. The fabricated letter is
based on a confidential and genuine docu-
ment which the fabrication misrepresents,
The Senate Committee had, therefore, been
offered a piece of paper which was not what
it pretended to be, which not only used ma-
terial that it was against the law to use but
falsified the meaning of that material as
well.
Manifestly the law had been violated. An
officer'in a position of trust and of high
sensitiveness had violated the law by the un-
authorized disclosure of confidential docu-
ments. And second, a document had been
fabricated and offered to the Senate as evi-

dence. When the counsel fO' the Army, Mr.
Welch, asked for the name of the officer who
had participated in this lawless operation.
Sen. McCarthy, who was under oath, refused,
saying that "You will never get that infor-
mation."
* * *
SEN. DIRKSEN then intervened to ask Mr.
S Jenkins and Chairman Mundt for a rul-
ing as to whether it would "be required of
a witness, consonant with his oath, that he
reveal the source of a document when he
had pledged himself to respect the confi-
dence and not reveal the source.' To this
Mr. Jenkins replied, "It is elementary that
the Senator does not have to reveal the name
of his informant. That is one of the most
elementary principles engrafted in the law.
Otherwise, law-enforcing officers would be
so hamstrung and hampered. as that they
would never be able to ferret out crime. I
unhesitatingly rule that Sen. McCarthy does
not have to reveal the name of his inform-
ant."
Mr. Jenkins would have been wiser to
have been less unhesitating and less cate-
gorical. For he has put himself and the
committee and the Senate in the position
of protecting a government employee who
knowingly violated the law. This is an un-
tenable position for a law-making body.
The Senate cannot make laws, and then
rule that it will support a Senator who is
protecting a violator of the law.
Where did Mr. Jenkins lose his way and
end up as the defender of the subversive
doctrine that a man may violate the law se-
cretly if, in his own private opinion, it would
be a good thing to violate the law? The
clew to Mr. Jenkins's error is in the bold-
face sentence above-in his saying that
without the power to protect their inform-
ants "law-enforcing officers would be so
hamstrung and hampered as that they
would never be able to ferret out crime."
That is quite true of law-enforcing officers.
Mr. Jenkins's error, which is the fundamen-
tal error at the root of the McCarthy prob-
lem, is to assume that a committee of the
Legislative branch of the government are
"law-enforcing officers" who "ferret out
crime."
It is precisely this error of Mr. Jenkins's
-that Senate committees may act as
"law-enforcing officers"-which has caus-
ed all the violence, the confusion, the in-
justice and the demoralization. For the
American system of government is found-
ed upon the separation of powers, and the
McCarthy problem has been created by
his invasion of the powers of the Execu-
tive, and by the failure of the Executive
to resist the invasion and to defend its
powers.
McCarthyism is fundamentally unconsti-
tutional in spirit and in practice. The Am-
erican government cannot be made to work
if its fundamental principle is flagrantly
and systematically violated. It is systemati-
cally violated if the Legislature takes upon
itself the law-enforcing functions of the
Executive.
T HIS AFFAIR of the fabricated letter is a
demonstration of how the violation of
the fundamental principle of the Constitu-
tion leads to lawlessness and anarchy.
* ,*,
Why did Sen. McCarthy encourage an of-
ficer of the Army to violate his oath and
to break the law? Because that was the on-'
ly way he could obtain for his committee in-
formation collected by the legitimate law-
enforcing officers of the government. Why
did he have to break the law to get the in-
formation? Because it is not the business1
of Congress to enforce the laws, and the
use and disclosure by Congressional cam-
mitees of information needed for law-en-
forcement makes it much more difficult for
the legitimate law-enforcing officers to en-
force the law.
In short, the Senator was engaged in work
which is contrary to the principle of the
Constitution, and so he resorted to lawless
methods to carry out his lawless enterpiise.
Since there was no lawful method by which
a legislative committee could take over the
functions of law-enforcement, he resorted to
illegitimate methods including the encour-

agement and the protection of the violation
of the law by the employees of the govern-
ment.

but most certainly share, with

I am convinced that this attitude of "welcome" toward legis-
lative investigations of universities is an utterly disastrous folly. It
reflects-at least so it seems to me-a total misconception of the
problem.

grounds of "strong suspicions"
that I was present 'actually I

A congressional hearing-at any rate & hearing conducted under-

with, an atmosphere entirely unfriendly and unfamiliar to men of

sidered and reasoned argument is virtually impossible. The presenta-
tion is bound to be incessantly interrupted by the explosion of photo- , BULLETIN

spectators, by the gavel-pounding of a chairman determined to ex-

DRAMA

" .., ,

At Lydia Mendelssohn.
THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, starring Lil-
lian Gish, presented by the University of
Michigan Drama Season.
THE STORY of the opening of the nine-
teenth drama season at Lydia Mendels-
sohn is much like that of the eighteenth
and seventeenth, and, I presume, many that
have gone before: a handsome production,
a couple really fine performances, but not
much of a play. "The Trip to Bountiful" is
primarily a vehicle for stars; any inventive-
ness it develops comes from the performers.
It does provide an approximately adequate
frame for virtuoso acting, and some of this
acting was quite brilliant.
Unfortunately, however, a few good ac-
tors or even a few well conceived charac-
ters do not make a dramatic situation of
necessary force. The story of an old lady
who wants to return to her country home
is the meat of "Bountiful." It is in the
main offered forth sentimentally (but not
slickly), salted by the opposition of her
selfish daughter-in-law and larded by the
earnest confusion of her entrapped son.
All three acts are well padded with char-
acter touchese, but, in general, each act
repeats the same ones and adds little that
is fresh to the dramatic situation.
The play could profitably be compared to
"Point of No Return," a work of similar
spirit and intention, but which does succeed,
in spite of its bifuration, in complicating
the drama somewhat after the first act. In

"Bountiful," for instance, the second act
could have been left out entirely without
the slightest sense of anything missing.
About all that can be said for the second
act is that Miss Gish is given her biggest
opportunity at the end of it, this opportunity
being the final hysterical plea to a sheriff
that she be allowed to go the last twelve
miles to her home. This, and all other fa-
cets of the character, she handles with ap-
peal and driven energy. It is, however, not
so much Miss Gish as it is Kim Stanley, in
the role of Jessie May Watts, the daughter-
in-law, who holds the play in Texas and in
the kind of fountain-coke, moving-picture
world that the playwright intended.
Miss Stanley's gestures, her voice, her
"nervousness" are perfectly controlled, and,-
she virtually runs off with the play at
times, furnishing a constant uneasy re-
minder that it should not be quite that
easy a thing to do.
In the final analysis, "The Trip To Bounti-
ful," in spite of a little heavy-footed poesy
near the end, is never a really bad play; it
has one good characterization and another
better than average :and its padding is only
occasionally uncomfortable. Still, it seems as
if the Drama Season might have considered
the tepid New York reaction toward it a
little more seriously. Good plays fail on
Broadway, but they usually stimulate some
good arguments in the process; at best
"Bountiful" might be advanced for the cause
of in-the-tradition, unexperimental theater
by its supporters, but hardly with much
warmth.

going to be about academic freedom. It is not going to concern !itself
with the accomplishments of universities or with the problems of pro-
moting intellectual maturity among students. It will concern itself,
as the investigation comrittee chairmen have made quite clear, with
individuals. It will be a discussion not of principles but of personalities.
Thus these hearings will revolve around such questions as whether
Professor A is a Communist because Louis Budenz says that someone
told him that Profesor A was believed to be a Communist a quarter-
of a century ago .... whether Prof. B. is subversive because he belongs
or once belonged to organizations which have incurred the disapprov-
al of the Attorney General or the House Committee on Un-American
Activities . . . whether a particular college is communist-dominated
because it allowed on its campus a visiting lecturer who denounced the
Un-American Activities Committee.
Out of this kind of inquiry and discussion can come only di-
visive controversy and confusion. No doubt some of the academic
witnesses will respond to questions which seem to them impertinent
and offensive with dignity and coolness and clarity. But some oth-
ers, no doubt, will lose their tempers and talk foolishly. The com-
mittee, presumably, will be able to discover a number of teachers
who joined the Party years ago for respectable reasons, who got
out of it years ago for respectable reasons-to make witnessing a
career. Some of the professors in this category will seek the pro-
tection of the Fifth Amendment-mistakenly, in my judgment-I
in order to avoid possible prosecution or in order to avoid being re-
quired to give the names of persons who, like themselves, joined
the Party innocently and got out of it long ago. Some will refuse
to answer the questions of the committee on abstract grounds of
conscience, pleading the protection of the First Amendment, and
may find themselves cited for contempt of Congress.
This is a point at which should like to same something about the
use of the Fifth Amendment as a means of avoiding acknowledgmentI
of past membership in the Communist Party. I do not mean to at-
tempt here any exhaustive discussion of its scope and protection in
ordinary circumstances. I mean merely to consider its application to
teachers in the special context of the current inquiries into colleges
and universities.
When a committee of Congress hales a man before it and asks him
if he has ever been a Communist, it impales him in one or another of
the prongs of a trident. If the witness answers "yes" to this question,
the committee is all too likely to insist that he identify individuals who
were in the Party with him-a kind of degradation which any sensi-j

T HE ACADEMIC Freedom sub-
commission of SL will sponsor
an open hearing for all students
and faculty members who have
testified before the Clardy Com-
mittee, on Thursday, May 14, at
7:30.
The objects, of this meeting are,
to make it possible for those who
have testified to clarify their po-
sitions, to the campus and to give
the student body an opportunity
to hear the positions of these stu-
dents and faculty members first
hand.
In the weeks to come there will
undoubtedly be a great deal of dis-
cussion about how to handle indi-
viduals who have been called to
testify as well as about the place
of committees on the academic
(and national) scene. The ability
to evaluate the positions of vari-
ous individuals requires these po-
sitions be understood, not from
editorialized comments but as the
individuals state and develop
them.
It is in line with giving the stu-
dents a chance to evaluate the ac-
tual reasons and positions that
the meeting on Thursday is being

Universities, and the individual members of the faculties, have,
of course, a duty of respectful cooperation with any duly consti-
tuted congressional body. But this duty does not require of them
blind obedience. They have a duty also to their own values which
obliges them to judge each case individually on its individual
merits.
Of course, I am not questioning the legal authority of Congress
to investigate institutions of higher learning. I do not, for that mat-
ter, question the authority of Congress to investigate the church or
the press, despite the constitutional limitations on legislation in these
spheres. Congress has plenary power-and must have such power-
to look into any area of American life. But to say that Congress has
power to investigate is not necessarily to say that this power ought to

SATURDAY night's concert proved to be
an exceptionally enjoyable one. The
program was chosen in good taste and with
enough variety to preclude even a single
boring moment,
The evening - began with little ostenta-
tion. The first group was rather serious
in nature. But the ice started to break
with Haydn's "To the Women," a light-
hearted -piece extolling the virtues of the
fairer sex. Schubert's "The Omnipo-
tence" followed in sharp contrast, a reli-

topher's voice is a rich and mature baritone.
He uses it well. His tone is relaxed and ef-
fortless, and with full intensity. As well as
vocal technique, Mr. Christopher possesses
dramatic and interpretive talent. He appear-
ed completely at home in both grand opera
and lighter music.
Robert McGrath stepped in to sing the
exotic and mysterious "Far Above the Purple
Hills" with pianissimo choral accompani-
ment. His voice was light and well suited to
the piece. And with their extreme vocal con-
trol, the Glee Club outdid themselves.
The first half of the program concluded
with a number from Guys and Dolls but
the bravos of the audience made it neces-
sary for the group to render encores of
"Casey Jones," "Nola," and "It Ain't Ne-
cessarily So," with solos by Russell Chris-
topher. It was in this last group that the

morous with action and special sound ef-

The Glee Club sounded rich and velvety.
Occasionally one section dominated and
sometimes the tone sounded slightly for-
ced, but never did a single voice stand out.
Professor Duey deserves praise for his
choral arrangements. He very definitely
wrote bearing in mind his singers' limi-
tations. Accompanist Joseph Savarino did
a stunning job. He was never overpower-
ing, but he skillfully brought out his part
when called for.
At the closerthe audience rose to sing

haired had long since let down their locks.
The short hairs were well satisfied too. I
