POINT BY POINT:
President Hatcher's Report:
Some Points of Difference

THE FOLLOWING is a discussion on President
Harlan H. Hatcher's report to the Faculty Sen-
ate in regard to Prof. Mark Nickerson and other
related matters.
Those of you, who, as the grapevine says many
are doing, have lost interest in the issue, might
as well stop reading right here, and attend to
your more important business. Those of you who
think academic freedom a timeworthy topic, wel-
come.
* * * *
Perhaps an outline of particulars on the Univer-
sity President's references to Prof. Nickerson in his
report would be preferred over a rambling dis-
course. Observing that the President's report was
not at all fair to Prof. Nickerson might well pre-
face the following points:
1.a. FROM THE REPORT: "The questions ask-
ed by the Congressional Committee indicated some-
thing ofthe alleged scope and period of an intimate
involvement in the Communist Party."
b. COMMENT: Guilt of membership is here im-
plied from only the questions asked, rather than
from any answers or absence of answers. Very un-
usual. Note also the use of the word "intimate."
2. a. FROM THE REPORT: Prof. Nickerson
refused to answer "leading to the presumption
that he was using the amendment legally and
that there were in truth facts in his case which,
if disclosed, would tend to connect him with a
crime."
b. COMMENT: This ks an interpretation of the
use of the Fifth Amendment which was never
intended. According to this, to use the Amend-
ment is to plead guilty without explaining the
"why" of the guilt. Thus, the Amendment would
be meaningless.
3. a. FROM THE REPORT: "Whether or not he
did satisfactorily demonstrate his withdrawal from
the Communist Party and its activities is a matter
upon which fair-minded persons may, and clearly
do, differ. The Chairman of his Department and
the Dean and Executive Committee of his School,
persons who may be presumed to know him better
than any of the others who have dealt officially
with his case, believe him to be unfit for continued
membership on the Medical School faculty."
b. COMMENT: The criterion is set as the rela-
tive truth of his claim to withdrawal from the
Party. Those who "know him better than any of
the others" may or may not have referred to this
criterion. The report does not say which criterion
or criteria they used, although it is implied by in-
clusion in the same paragraph that they did use
that criterion. However, that is mere implication,
and not very strong at that. It developed, further-
more, before faculty committees, that when Prof.
Nickerson and one of those who knew him better
disagreed on questions of fact, it was Nickerson
who was proved correct.
4. a. FROM THE REPORT: "Dr. Nickerson's
claims of withdrawal from the Communist Party
are not supported by corroborative evidence of any
sort, and might, under other circumstances, be
flatly contradicted."
b. COMMENT: It certainly was unnecessary to
say that his claims "might" be flatly con-
tradicted. It is much less reasonable to apply the
thought to a decision.
5. a. FROM THE REPORT: "The date which
he gave for his 'drifting away'-1948-coincides
with the approximate date when the Communist
Party went 'underground' and it became the
party line for members to conceal their affilia-
tion."
b. COMMENT: Quite an implication, with no
logical basis at all. It is hard to believe that this
was given serious consideration by intelligent
men. By this reasoning, one can hold that there
is no such thing as 'drifting away' from the Par-
ty from 1948 on. Yet, Prof. Markert's 'drifting
away' in 1948 (as a "young man") went undis-
puted. Markert and Nickerson, by the way, are
the same age.
6. a. FROM THE REPORT: "He has not by words
or action indicated any disapproval of the Com-
munist Party or its actions, nor has any action of
his been reported which would be inconsistent with
continued party membership. His testimony before
the committees reflects approval and admiration
for the actions and program of the Communist-
Party .... Dr. Nickerson did say that he would not
rejoin the party if it is as bad as the newspapers
say it is but he made the reservation that he had
no reason to believe that it is in fact a subversive
or disloyal organization."
b. COMMENT: On the contrary, Prof. Nickerson

did indicate a disapproval of the Party "if it is as
bad as the newspapers say it is." His statement
here is as much evidence for his being presently
unfamiliar with the Party, as lack of concrete ac-
tion disapproving the Party is evidence of retained
affiliation. He also used the word "rejoin," which
would seem to indicate that he is not now a mem-
ber.
7. a. FROM THE REPORT: "By taking advantage
of the Fifth Amendment in the Congressional Com-
mittee hearings he necessarily took the legal ground
that truthful answers to the committee's questions-
would expose him to the hazard of a successful
criminal prosecution."
b. COMMENT: Here, again, is that unintended
interpretation that is contradictory to American
principles of Justice. This time it is cruelly supple-
mented by the use of the word "successful," a most
unfair adjective under the circumstances.
8. a. FROM THE REPORT: "The 'frank and
candid' disclosures of his past activities which
appeared to impress the committee members are
all concerning matters which he knows to be
matter of record in government files. He has not
disclosed any phase of his activity which was not
already a matter of record."
b. COMMENT: Evidently, the president re-
mained one who was unimpressed by disclosures
that were directly verifiable by government rec-
ords. He reasons that verifiability is a discredit.

be used against Prof. Nickerson and in defense of
Prof. Markert.
9. a. FROM THE REPORT: "His vagueness con-
cerning the circumstances of his withdrawal from
the Party is an example of his unwillingness to
disclose matters which he surmises may be un-
known to his questioners."
b. COMMENT: If Prof. Nickerson were a dis-
honest man, as is implied by the President's re-
fusal to believe that he withdrew from the Party,
it would have been easier, simpler, and more ex-
pedient to merely disclaim the Party completely.
That he did not do so is, ironically, testimony to
his honesty.
10. a. FROM THE REPORT: "The burden of re-
futing the inescapable inferences flowing from his
admitted former membership and present refuge
in the Fifth Amendment must necessarily rest up-
on Dr. Nickerson." .
b. COMMENT: Hardly. It is up to the investigat-
ors to prove he is still a Communist. It is not the
case that he is guilty until irrefutably proved inno-
cent.
11. a. FROM THE REPORT: "There is a reason-
able presumption that a relationship such as he
had with the Communist Party and its activities
continues in the absence of a clear showing of its
discontinuance."
b. COMMENT: Ibid.
12. a. FROM THE REPORT: ".. . it (Special
Advisory Committee) found Dr. Nickerison to
possess 'more than one man's share of human
faults and frailties,' to be 'an arrogant man' and
'perhaps also a foolish man' ..0"
b. COMMENT: There was no mention of the
favorable comments by the Committee, although
the faculty committees that dealt with Prof. Nick-
erson agreed, in their opening statements, that
he was honest and candid. Very unfair of the
president to include only these derogatory re-
marks from a committee that recommended his
reinstatement.
* * * *
F THESE ARE representative examples of the
University's thinking on matters such as were
involved in the Nickerson case, then the faculty is
well justified in its attempts to keep the case open
until it has been properly and fully examined.
Many of the faculty have given the greater part
of their lives here, and many others intend to do
so, consequently having much at stake in the re-
tention of respectable principles of academic free-
dom and integrity. When they have been ignored,
while these principles, though upheld verbally by
the administration, seem to be subverted in prac-
tice, their deep concern is easily understood. Their
feelings on the issue must be strong, else they would
not protest so persistently. And the faculty can be
expected to know more about academic freedom
than any other group.
* . . *
THERE ARE other parts of the president's report
that, while having no unique bearing on the
Nickerson case, are nevertheless deserving of close
scrutiny.
13. a. FROM THE REPORT: "Our procedures,
in my opinion, revealed in practice some weak-
nesses which I hope will receive the further study
of the Senate." EARLIER IN THE REPORT:
"Having meditated upon its functions, this com-
mittee (Subcommittee on Intellectual Freedom
and Integrity) took the position that it was not
available to the president for consideration of
these cases until after he had made a decision
and the affected person asked for a review."
b. COMMENT: Obviously, an affected person
would not petition for a review unless he were
affected by a recommendation of dismissal. But
this creates a rigid situation for the president.
Having made public his recommendation of
dismissal, he finds himself in a position of having
to choose between his own announced conclusions
and those of the faculty committee if the two
disagree. There was this disagreement in the
Nickerson case.
Yet, one could hardly expect the president to
retract his stand. The only road really open to
him was to find stronger evidence for his deci-
sion, a search that seems to have led him to
rely on somewhat ridiculous considerations. The
faculty subcommittee should have forseen this.
14. a. FROM THE REPORT: "In this one case
(H. Chandler Davis), there was no dissent from
complete unanimity of decision by all responsible
bodies."
b. COMMENT: The executive committee of the
Literary college recommended Davis' reinstatement,
as did the mathematics department executive com-

mittee. Apparently, then, they were not included
within the phrase "responsible bodies."
Yet, the executive committee of the Medical
School weighed most heavily in the Nickerson case.
From here it is easy to argue that those recom-
mendations which were most favorable to the presi-
dent's already determined opinion, were the ones
that received attention.
15. a. FROM THE REPORT: "Of one thing I am
sure. Nobody's freedom has been invaded or abridg-
ed at the University of Michigan ...."
b. COMMENT: Nobody's except Prof. Nickerson's,
and Davis'.
S* * *
In summary, it seems as if the decision to dismiss
Prof. Nickerson was based on; at best, questionable
reasoning. The many tendencies in the president's
report to discredit him in the eyes of the faculty
were probably the result of an attempt to create
satisfaction with the dismissal through an unsav-
ory description of the man which would incline the
faculty to thinking he should have been dismissed
after all.
If so, the report was not really an explanation,
but a rationalization; and a failure.
This interpretation seems to be enhanced by'the
observation that President Hatcher did not give
any really good reasons for dismissing Prof. Nick-

MOVIES
AT THE ORPHEUM . . .
DIRTY HANDS, with Pierre
Brasseur, Daniel Gelin, Eng-
lish Subtitles, and others.
"ALL FLIES Wear Red Gloves"
by Ira Walach is a piece I
had always judged as jocular but
most unjust parody of M. Sartre;
after last night's movie adventure,
I have come to understand that
Mr. Wallach was not just kidding.
The moral of Dirty Hands, I
take it, is that an act is an act.
It takes Hugo, our hero, the long-
est time (two weeks reel time, 87
minutes real timey to decide
whether or not to actually com-
mit an act. Then when he finally
does, it takes him another two
years to find out the act's mean-
ing and at that he isn't really
sure that what he thinks is the
meaning really is the meaning.
But he knows there is a mean-
ing. The bad guys say no, there
is no meaning. Yessthere is,ahe
says. The bad guys then take
him out into the night to kill
him. As they walk toward us
with the music crescendoing and
a lovely glow emenating from
Hugo, we cannot help but be
reminded of another movie; like
in The Robe, getting killed is
The Pure's idea of fun.
Now although it is fact that M.
Sartre is to be taken far more ser-
iously than Mr. Douglas, one could
not deduce this from Dirty Hands.
The Robe, at least, is honest hocus
pocus frankly geared toward a
fun-loving, slightly dim witted
public; Dirty Hands sets itself up
as some sort of godsend to the in-
telligensia-in actuality it is a pre-
tentious, repellent display of half-
baked ideas.
Hugo, presumably a latterday
Raskolnikov, joins the Communist
Party and is at once charged with
the mission of assassinating a fel-
low party-member. The time is
wartime France. Hoerderer, the
assassinatee, is planning a coali-
tion with the pro-Nazi Royal-
ists and Anti-Nazi Conservatives,
which coalition will somehow pro-
vide the Communist rule of France
come the Red Army. This scheme
does not go over too well with
some other communists. Hoerder-
er, therefore must go. And this is
how Hugo, a poor little rich boy,
gets his big chance.
When he does get around to
killing Hoerderer, it is because
he finds the former fooling with
his wife. Or is it? That, how-
ever is beside the point. The
point is, two years have passed
and the communists have now
adopted Hoederer's plan to the
letter, have made Hoerderer a
hero, and now want to wash
their dirty hands of the whole
matter. Hugo, a true existential-
ist, feels otherwise. He gets his.
The acting, scenery, music and
haberdashery, it all was suffi-
ciently gallic. So were the sub-
titles.

ARCHITECTURE AUDITORIUM:
IT HAPPENS EVERY SPRING
with Ray Milland, Paul Douglas,
and Jean Peters.
For a change, Ann Arbor, rather
the SL Cinema Guild, offers a mo-
tion picture that warrants a favor-
able review. The film in question
is the delightful comedy It Hap-
pens Every Spring.
I have been advised that the gen-
tleman who was responsible for the

original story was Mr. Shirley
Smith, Secretary Emeritus of this
university, and that some of the
scenes were filmed on this campus.
Later, the picture enjoyed its world
premiere in Ann Arbor.
Hollywood has become notorious
for, among other things, a pen-
chant for turning out two distinct
types of baseball film. The more
common type, the kind that cap-
tures the largest audiences, is the
opus where a real-life baseball
hero is put through the paces as
the film describes his tragic back-
ground, his playing field gesticula-
tions, and immediate problems, in
an effort to drown the audience in
its own tears.
The second type is the classic
where a reel-life baseball hero be-
comes enmeshed in the usual Hol-
lywoodian cops-and-robbers adven-
ture. Both the aforementioned types
cause me to gnash my teeth in con-
sternation, to put a thing mildly.
It Happens Every Spring is dif-
ferent. It boasts a moderately
imaginative story line, compe-
tent acting, and what stereotyped
characterizations there are come
off in a much better fashion than
the iniquities discussed earlier.
The essential plot is that Vernon
(Mr. Milland), a research profes-
sor at a midwestern university,
wants to marry the Dean's daugh-
ter; and to do this, he needs a
nest-egg. Our professor has hit
upon a compound that repels wood,

Union Complaint ...
To The Editor:
FOR SEVEN SEMESTERS I have
donated, or, perhaps, more re-
alistically, been fleeced of, my $2
(or whatever sum they happen to
be demanding at present) for the
questionable right to purchase stale
cigarettes, watered-down m i 1 k -
shakes, and an ill-tasting assort-
ment of over-priced foods in a mus-
ty edifice located on S. University
and State known as the Michigan
Union; and I have managed to
suppress the desire to run rampant
through its ancient, foul-smelling
lounges dislodging the many rel-
ics of bygone years in a manifes-
tation of my rage. However, to-
day, three weeks after being robbed
of my Union fee for the seventh
time, I attempted to partake of
another one of the many facilities
open to male students, namely, the
cashing of a $5 check. But no, due
to the fact that the Unioneers had
not issued Union cards at registra-
tion (not being ashamed, of course,
to gleefully extract the usual fee)
I had no card, and wasfunable to
obtain one due to the fact that I
didn't have my cashier's receipt,
which I, along with 17,000rother
students had long ago consigned to
the circular file.
And so, with three cents to last
me until the banks open in the
morning, I ask that something be
done. I hesitate to offer my own
suggestions, for they would prob-
ably involve the hiring of demoli-
tion squads or professional arson-'
ists; I therefore submit the prob-
lem to The Daily staff and the stu-
dent body.

Academic Schisms...
To the Editor:
AS AN alumnus with a deep af-I
fection for the University ofI

for her leadership in education,I
I am sincerely distressed by thec

Markert-Nickerson-Davis matter.
The response of Michigan alum-

E DON'T KNOW why no-
body ever thought of it be-
fore but here is a virtually fool-
proof method for the University
of Michigan to earn several
million dollars.
It is really quite simple. Com-
mon knowledge tells us that
Iowa will be favored to trounce
the Wolverines by at least two
touchdowns in its conference
scrap this afternoon. All the
University administration has
to do is to bet, say twenty mil-
lion dollars, on Michigan and
take two points. In other words,
in order for Michigan to win
its bet, Iowa would either have
to lose or win by less than two
points. At these odds, the Wol-
verines will have no trouble in
finding takers.
Since no local Ann Arbor
bookie could very well cover
such a wager, Michigan's bet
money could be spread amongst
the "syndicates" in New York,
Las Vegas, Chicago and New
Orleans (isn't there always a
syndicate operating in a big
city?).
Now comes the piece de re-
sistance.
Bennie Oosterbaan's Wol-
verine gridders will fail to show
up at Michigan Stadium, thus
forfeiting the game to Iowa.
Football rules specifically state,
"In the event the game is for-
feited, theofficialgscore shall
be 1-0."
Therefore, since Iowa will
only win by one point instead
of the required two, Michigan
wins its bet.
The millions of dollars gar-
nered by such a coup could be
appropriated for such worth-
while improvements as con-
structing new buildings, con-
ducting scientific research, add-
ing new volumes to the library,
setting up new scholarships, in-
creasing the number of faculty
members, and outbidding other
institutions to have congres-
sional committees conduct their
investigations on this campus
instead of on others.
The possibilities are unlim-
ited. Move over, Harvard, here
we come!

schism between our teachers and
administrators shakes the pride
and confidence in Michigan not
only of these alumni, but that of
the lay reader and news-cast lis-
tener as well. Our great University
suffers from these reactions, as
she suffers from the differences
within her family.
If the aims of the Communist
ideologies are indeed to create
dissension and misunderstanding,
to destroy peoples and institutions
from within, then those we would
censure must be well amused by
the misunderstandings now evi-
dent here at our beloved school.
I plead no rights or wrongs in
the decisions made and the ac-
tions taken. Whether they are
"fair" or not, I do not know. But
alumni everywhere feel it is im-
portant that administration and
faculty take immediate steps to
close the gap, and to establish the
free interchange of ideas and
opinions, the co-operation and
mutual trust that is required to
maintain Michigan's standing as

a leader among Universities. With-
out this trust and understanding,
and the working together that re-
sults from it, administration and
faculty alike will falter, and Mich-
igan herself must suffer.

HOW HAS this year's economic
recession affected business
profits? Reports now available on
corporate earnings in the first half
of 1954 show that profits for most
major companies have held up
surprisingly well-and for many
they have even forged ahead to
all-time record highs. Perhaps the
most startling aspect of the cur-
rent profits picture is that com-
pany after company reports that
it has been doing less business,
yet making more money..
A tabulation of the half-year
reports from 457 leading manufac-
turing companies, provided by the
National City Bank of New York,
shows that total profits after taxes
for the group rose by 7 per cent
over those recorded in the first
half of 1953, which for most com-
panies had been the best profit
period in history. Also, profits for
these companies were higher in
the second quarter of 1954 than in
any quarter of 1953.
