The Suspension and Hearings


i I


(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following editorial, writ-
ten by three Senior staff members, Alice Silver,
Virginia Voss and Diane Auwerter, who were
present at the Clardy hearings in Lansing Mon-
day, is an attempt to cover the most important
aspects of those hearings and to bring to light
interesting sidelights of the procedures which
were not included in news reports.)
The Suspensions ...
"SUSPENSION without prejudice." This
was the immediate action of the Uni-
versity regarding the three faculty men who
testified before ,Rep. Clardy's committee.
It was an unfair and unnecessary action.
It was unfair because there is no such
thing as suspension without prejudice. The
suspension necessarily carries with it the
idea of suspicion until cleared.
It is not every day that faculty men are
suspended. When it does happen it is im-
plied that these men have done or are doing
something seriously wrong and must be in-
vestigated and cleared before they are fit
to return to their duties as faculty members.
However, nothing which was said during
the Committee hearings would support this
implication. There was nothing established
at the hearings. The Committee is not a
court. Nothing was charged.
In short, these three men were consid-
ered competent faculty members on Fri-
day. There was no reason to reverse that
judgment by implication on Monday.
The suspension was also unnecessary on
procedural grounds. There is no rule which
states the University must-suspend a faculty
member before the President can go ahead
with the investigating procedures now in
It is mandatory for the President to ree-
ommend dismissal or demotion before a case
can be heard by the Faculty Senate. But it
is not necessary for the President to suspend
the men in question before he can ask the
Deans of their schools to start their inves-
As it is, he has depried their students of
valuable instruction and made it extremely
difficult for the other teachers in their de-
partments, who now must take on additional
teaching jobs.
We can draw only one conclusion. It
is a familiar one. The suspension action
was taken for the purpose of public rela-
Wayne suspended their men immediately
after the hearings. The' University was put
in the very difficult position of taking the
same action or explaining why to the Legis-
lature and the public. Their way out was
to pacify what they consider to be public
We understand, although the Univer-
sity often has told us we don't, the im-
portance of good public relations.
However, we cannot but maintain that in
this case the reputation and well-being of
three very excellent faculty men is more
important than public relations. It is also
hard for us to believe that this great, well
respected University would have suffered in
any important respect if the men had not
been suspended.
For the above reasons, we repeat: the
suspension was unfair and unnecessary.
* * S *
Dismissal.. .
THE QUESTION of dismissal is the most
tricky and controversial.
Before we discuss this point, let one thing
be made clear. We cannot assume anything
about the political activities or beliefs of
the three faculty men. The Senate commit-
tee cannot take the questions asked by the
Clardy Committee as facts and charges
against or for the teachers. Again, the Com-
mittee did not establish evidence; it cannot
make charges.
But in the case of a teacher the question
is different.
There are three conditions, which if at
least one is present, would constitute
grounds for proper dismissal in the case
of a teacher.
They are the following:
If the teacher is involved in any illegal act.
If the teacher uses his position to bring
undue pressure upon his students in an at-

tempt to bring them into a political organi-
zation or in line with his political goals.
If the teacher is so totally committed to
a political organization and its dogma that
he is unable or unwilling to consider facts
and opinions free from bias and direction
imposed upon him by that organization.
The Congressional Committee is not the
judge of these matters. The courts must
judge the first - illegal acts. Students,
faculty and administrators must judge the
men on the last two points.
As regards the first point of illegal acts,
the three faculty men now in question testi-
fied that they do not believe in the violent
averthrow of the government. In the one
case where government classified work was
involved, the professor testified under oath
that he had never engaged in espionage and
had never given secret information to any
unauthorized party.
As for the second point . . . attempting to
use their position as teachers to unduly in-
fluence students ... over one hundred stu-
dents have already signed petitions affirm-
ing their faith in the three men and attest-
ing to the fact that these men did not at-
tempt to influence them politically.
In these particular cases, the third point
is perhaps the most crucial for a university
to consider.
The three men are scientists. Their work

their colleagues and by their students. Prof.
Nickerson won an award for the best work
done in pharmacology in the nation in 1949.
The zoology department has sent a recom-
mendation to the Regents for Prof. Markert's
promotion from assistant professor to asso-
ciate professor. The chairman of his depart-
ment called Chan Davis' work "very fine and
All three have stated that they reject
any committment or involvement which
would in any way limit their freedom as
academicians and scientists.
Unless the Deans or the President come
up with facts to the contrary there should
be no grounds for dismissal in the case of
these three faculty members.
* * * *
The curious fact is that no mention was
made in Hatcher's statement of either their
competency as teachers or their politics.
They have been suspended and are being
investigated because they refused to answer
questions before the Clardy committee.
Thus, the only indication so far is that
their future status at the University will be
determined by political criterion. It is a
political matter whether one agrees with
the President's policy of "full cooperation"
with the Committee.
If one does not agree with this stand
this should not place one's "relationship
to the University in serious question."
In conclusion, there will be three undesir-
able results if the men are dismissed.
First, the University will lose to another
educational institution three excellent scien-
tists, two of whom have national reputa-
tions in their fields.
Second, the morale of the faculty will be
lowered and, according to reports of faculty
members, others will leave the University in
Third, and most important, the Univer-
sity, for the sake of good public relations,
will conceed to a Congressional Commit-
tee the power to determine the make-up
of this faculty.
If merely by calling faculty members and
asking them questions which they decline
to answer on Constitutional grounds, the
Committee can force the dismissal of teach-
ers, then the Federal government's influence
in education will indeed become a threat.
The administration's first and foremost
consideration must be with the educational
aspect of this University.
If these teachers are dismissed, we must
conclude that a Congressional subcommittee
has forced the administration to overlook
their first duty as administrators of an insti-
tution of higher learning,
* * * *
The Hearings. .
THE CLARDY Committee hearing Monday
was, among other things, a good place to
clear up any misconceptions to the effect
that all we need to know about actualities
can be learned from abstractions.
As far as the faculty members' testimony
goes, the old stereotypes, with few excep-
tions, were just not substantiated. There
were no martyrs sitting in the witness
chair; no concerted attempts on the part
of the Committee to badger witnesses into
perjuring themselves; no uniform efforts
on either side to hit below the belt in over-
stepping the rules of the game; no airs of
impending doom settling down on the
somewhat lighter atmosphere of tedious
uselessness which obscured any dramatiza-
tion of principles or purposes by either
side. If there is anything to condemn in
regard to the hearings it is not that they
in themselves perpetuated the witness-
investigator stereotypes, but that subse-
quent University action and certain press
coverage did.
Provided we recognize the very basic dis-
agreements over the Committee's validity be-
tween those questioning and those question-
ed-and the fact that disagreement must be
allowed to carry conviction-the hearings
were mature and governed generally by fair
play. If the faculty witnesses' continual in-
vocation of the Fifth and First Amendments
can be called 'balky," this applies only in an
intellectual, and not in a legal, sense. It is

pertinent that intellectual 'balking"-that is,
disagreement in the face of social and politi-
cal odds-is percisely what universities are
here to defend. Neither Davis nor Profes-
sors Nickerson and Markert voiced their dis-
approval of the Committee over Clardy's
gavel, and what they said within the limits
allotted them was said calmly and in full
recognition of the legal fact that the com-
mittee was "duly constituted."
As for the three men on the asking side
of the questioning, taken together they made
for 'a fair investigation; taken separately,
there were some discrepanies. The chairman,
R'ep. Clardy, is no Joe McCarthy.
His statements evidenced several miscon-
ceptions, among them the implied belief that
the Fifth Amen5dment is meant to protect
the guilty not the innocent. But except when
his at times irrational dedeciation to the
cause of rooting out the Communist con-
spiracy intervened, he chaired the hearings
judiciously and displayed nothing of the in-
vestigative temperament.
While Rep. Clardy did nothing either to
help or hinder the witnesses, Rep. Moulder,
from the witnesses' standpoint, did the
only constructive work of the day. His
questioning repeatedly gave the men an
opportunity to get on record points in their
favor--their objections to violent over-
throw of the government, the assertion

THAT the hearings managed to achieve
an unexpected degree of fairness is just
about all that can be said in the way of their
accomplishments. They contributed noth-
ing to the public knowledge of the Commu-
nist conspiracy of how it works or how wide-
spread it is. They only put on record several
names that have no meaning for anyone ex-
cept those in the University.
If the Committee itself cannot be prais-
ed or blamed very much, why all the fuss?
The answer lies in the sort of thing found
In the Detroit Free Press' coverage of the
hearings and in the suspension action by
President Hatcher. The newspaper cover-
age displayed the usual techniques of the
clever newswriter (i.e. "Davis split hairs on
definitions") in building up sympathy for
Rep. Clardy and reducing the witnesses to
uniform uncooperativeness.
The suspension action, taken on the sole
grounds of the three men's refusal to testify,
works to reinforce the popularized concep-
tion of the "balky witness". as someone who
must not be understood and judged on valid
grounds but condemned a priori.
And, most disastrously, the action serves .
to perpetrate the myth that the Clardy Com-
mittee actually accomplished something-
that investigating committees are doing such
vital work that it is necessary for a uni-
versity to adopt their values and put the
same names on its suspension list that the
committee puts on its record.
Reprehensible as his job might be, Rep.
Glardy has handled it fairly.
University administrators, because they
have not recognized that their jobs and
their purposes are very different, have not
done so well.
* * * *
The Students .. .
ACCORDING TO the University By-Laws,
a student is liable to disciplinary action
if he conducts himself in such a manner as
to make it apparent that he is not a desir-
able member of the University.
While the question of what will happen
to Mike Sharpe and Ed Shaffer as a re-
sult of their appearing before Clardy's
committee remains up in the air, it is
worthwhile to examine their conduct be-
fore the committee in the light of the
above provision.
Shaffer appeared before the group in the
middle of the afternoon after more than a
month of nervous expectation. In an agi-
tated flurry, he requested that the glaring
overhead lights be turned off and was chas-
tised by Rep. Clardy. After this initial out-
burst, however, he was calm and respectful.
He declined to answer questions on the
basis of the Fifth Amendment. (Although
he was reprimanded by Clardy for invoking
this Amendment in response to a question
about his employment, he later told The
Daily that his refusal was occasioned be-j
cause he at one time worked in a tank fac-
tory for two weeks. After seeing the use
made by the Clardy committee of similar in-
formation, Shaffer's refusal seems justified.
In other instances, there was little reason
for doubting that he used the Fifth Amend-
ment correctly. Both his own counsel and
a Lansing attorney upheld his stand, and it
is doubtful whether the threatened citation.
for contempt will materialize upon reexami-
nation of his testimony. Shaffer was fully
within his rights as a citizen. Is there any-
thing "undesirable" about such action? Or,
is merely being called before the committee
and refusing to act as an informer suffi-
cient reason for University action? If so, the
standards of the academic community need
considerable revamping.
The case of Mike Sharpe is not so clear
cut. In presenting his tirade against the
committee, accusing them of Fascistic be-
havior and reducing the hearing to con-
fusion, the student was not showing the
respect due to any governmental body.
If the committee has a moral right to
cite anyone for contempt, Sharpe assur-
edly earned such a citation.
Moreover, in stooping to tactics worse
than those of the committee itself, Sharpe
did a great deal to destroy the excellent
case presented for freedom of speech and

association by H. Chandler Davis. Sharpe's
conduct was "undesirable."
The significant thing to bear in mind,
however, is that Sharpe and Shaffer did not
appear before the committee as students.
Sharpe appeared as the chairman of the
Labor Youth League, which is not a recog-
nized student organization and does not meet
on University property. Shaffer appeared
as former chairman of the Michigan Youth
for Democratic Action (banned from cam-
pus) and for present political activities
which take place outside the University's
jurisdiction. Neither student at any time
drew the University into the hearings.
If the University steps into these cases,
it will not only exceed its authority as
stated in its Bylaws, but it will also ig-
nore two important resolutions passed this
year by Student Legislature.
The Academic Freedom motion of last fall
provided, in part, that students should be
protected against dismissal because of mem-
bership in any political group. It also stated
that the members of the educational com-
munity, as citizens, have all the constitu-
tional rights of any American citizen and no
special restrictions should be imposed upon
At a later date, the Legislature resolved
that students called before the committee
should not be subject to charges by the

rest of the University adminis-
tration, has taken toward the
whole incident. Their attitude
gives no credit to themselves or to
the university they represent.
Miss Bacon, in her capacity as
an official representative of the
university, sanctioned the concept
of a second class citizenry among
the student body. She refused to
take forceful action when she had
a duty to do so. Instead by her
own admission she bowed to short
run expediency. And for this she
owes the Negro population of the
university, and the foreign popu-
lation of the university that is al-
so affected by this ruling a very
definite apology.

I HAVE ALWAYS been reluctant
to add my voice to the wails ap-
pearing in The Daily. But since
I seem to represent the few re-
maining academicians on this
campus and since I have been sub-
jected to personal vilification in
recent issues, I consider it my
duty to answer.
I do not intend to honor my at-
tackers, Eugene Alkema and Ro-
bert B. Fiske, Jr., by participating
in their favorite sport of calumni-
ation. Obviously these two stu-
dents (?), previously unknown to
me, are among the many in Law
School who adhere to the Epi-
curean philosophy. They are at
Michigan, apparently, to seek ear-
thy thrills rather than to receive
stimulation through honest strug-

there is no room here for this type.

Again I would like to suggest
that the Daily cease its practice of
