the United States to reach the
people involved in the cases, Aft-
er four major criminals were cap-
tured as a result of this program,
Rich found that, he was "not
exactly appreciated by the under-
world and decided to hide out in
The first television ever done

ed, received a Television Academy

est movie director
mic television program Rich said that
ted he "was astounded at thehigh
caliber of equipment used for the
shows as well as the enthusiasm
sity of the students in their work."
He also commented on the re-
markable work done by the staff
headed by Prof. Garrison, their
instruction and the service they
are doing the University and the
Part of Pressure
Prof. Nickerson called the ter-"
mination of such grants "another
part of the pressure to get people
to inform." He has heard that an
individual can go to the proper
authorities, "for example the Clar-
dy committee," confess that he
has done wrong while telling on a
few other people and then get his
Backing up Prof. Nickerson's
charges, a professor who prefer-
red to remain anonymous said "I
know for a fact that some have
had their grants cancelled because
of political reasons. Since these
grants were given on the basis of
scientific merit, this is unfair."
Physics department chairman
Prof. Ernest F. Barker said that
he had not heard of any local cases
where such action has been taken.
The physicist, who has served on
the board of many selective com-
mittees, doesn't feel that the eval-
uative boards "are subject to such
petty reasoning." Saying that he
thinks such charges are "malicious
Pointing out that in the cases
of withdrawal of grants that he
was familiar with there had been
reasonably clear cut cases of con-
flict," Prof. Henry J. Gomberg of
the engineering college said he
does not think that in general
funds should be withheld.

The director attributed much to
the academic training he received
while a student here. "Profession-
al people cannot give as much at-
tention to the training of begin-
ners in the field and the diversi-
fled training received while in
school is an essential part of prep-
aration for a career as a director,"

Asked about his father, senior
partner in a large Boston law
firm, Welch said that he "only
talks about the cases he loses, nev-
er the ones he wins."
One of the many cases which
the Eastern lawyer did win, ac-
cording to the Associated Press,
occurred shortly after he began
practicing law. The opposing law-
yer in that case was a senator.
Boys Against Giants
Counsel Welch told the jury
listening to the case that this was
a situation of "boys defending
against giants." He continued to
wring the hearts of the jurors with
the assertioni that this was un-
fortunate because his client had
a very good case and it was too
bad he couldn't afford to hire
counsel worthy of it.
Welch won the verdict.
Another early case Welch won
when he defended a violinist in a
slander suit brought by a strip-
teaser. Welch's only piece of pos-
sible evidence was a photograph
of the woman in her "working

his pocket and showed it to her

Open Letter to the Campus
WE BELIEVE this country belongs to all its citizens, and
its welfare depends upon the productivity of, the taxes
paid by, the military services rendered by, ALL its citizens.
We therefore believe that all its citizens should have equal
opportunity to enjoy all its benefits. We believe those prac-
tices (e.g. discrimination in employment and service because
of race, creed, or color) that deprive some of our citizens of
this opportunity, are undesirable. To eliminate some of
these practices in Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan
Chapter of the N.A.A.C.P. is initiating the sticker campaign
that was approved by a referendum in the 1953 fall elec-
tion of the Student Legislature. The purpose of the cam-
paign is to translate into action those practices which logic,
our philosophy, and our Constitution tell us are right. We
will distribute to those merchants who do not use dis-
criminatory practices in hiring or service, a sticker bearing
the slogan "Fair Play the Wolverine Way." This sticker is
not 4designed to encourage the non-discriminating mer-
