Dismissal-

of Prof.

By WARREN WERTHEIMER
Associate Sports Editor
On the wings of Dusty Rhodes' three-run homer in the bottom of
the 10th inning, New York's Giants toppled the Cleveland Indians,
5-2, before a crowd of 52,751 and jumped oft to a 1-0 lead in the
1954 World Series.
Rhodes' blow, hit off loser Bob Lemon, was a lazy fly ball which
barely made the short right field. stands, and endedone of the most
exciting and nerve-rocking World Series games ever played. Willie
May, who had walked and stole second, andd Hank Thompson who
was intentionally passed, preceded the Giants' clutch pinch-hitter
across the plate.
Mays not only tallied the winning run, but it was his sensational

The Student Legislature voted 22
to 4 last night to issue formal pro-
test over the University dismissal
of Prof. Mark Nickerson.
Seven representatives abstained
from the voting.
The protest motion, read to the
floor by Joan Bryan, '56, for the
Culture and Education committee
of SL, stated that the professor's
dismissal was, in essence, due to
his political beliefs.

Russell, meanwhile, asked Neva-
da's attorney general for a ruling.
The governor's office said the law
"appeared to be lazy and filled
with Supreme Court decisions from
past cases."
Legal advisors to the governor
said privately, however, there was
no legal provision for electing some?
one to fill McCarran's unexpired
term. They said the governor's ap-
pointee would hold office until Jan-
uary 1957.

He called attention to the new
out-patient clinic and the Angell
Hall addition as examples of the
legislation at the University.
"Because of this five-year ex-
pansion program, our University
and colleges are able to meet, with
a reasonable degree of adequacy,
the demands of a college popula-
tion which' has increased 24,000
since 1940," he declared.
However, according to statisti-
cians, the number of people de-
siring to attend college in 1970 is
estimated to be between 150,000
and 170,000 (The present enroll-
ment in institutions of higher
learning in the state is 86,000.)

'Supporting the protest, Paul Dor-
mont, '56, said, "Even supposing
nothing could be done now, if Pres-
ident Hatcher, the Regents and the
people of Michigan know our feel-
ing, they may hesitate to do it
again."r
Jane Germany, '56, said that "if
we strongly believe in academic
freedom, we should support the mo-
tion."
Chuck Skala, '55 BAd, opposed
the motion saying, "I feel the man
was fired after due consideration
by people who know more about
the issue than we do. If there was
a mistake, the mistake has been
done and there's nothing we can
do about it."
Bart Cowan, '55, a newly ap-
pointed SL member also took op-
position.
"It involves more than academic
freedom," he said, "it involves
Communism. One of the Commu-
nist aims is to repudiate academ-
ic freedom."
Room Wanted
In other SL business, Mrs. Janet
Neary, former International Com-
mittee head, explained the plight
of German exchange student Heinz
Kohler who arrived on campus last
night.
Kohler has as yet no place to
stay, Mrs. Neary said. Campus
fraternities who would be willing
to donate room and board for this
semester were requested to call
her at NO 8-7436.
Most of the SL business con-
cerned appointment, elections, and
replacements.
