Seek Comic Book Curb
WASHINGTON (M) - Two teen-
age girls stood watch at a news-
stand near their school in Chi-
cago to learn who was buying the
"comics" with the lewd and hor-
A 3-year-old girl toddled in and
bought one of the most wanton. On
its cover a scantily clad woman
was pictured in a suggestive pose.
The little girl's father, ashamed
to buy the magazine himself, had
sent her in to get it for him.
Spurred by this incident and
others like it, Ann Osetek and Ar-
mella Bujnowski undertook one of
the liveliest campaigns the coun-
try has seen against the horror,
crime and sex "comics" being sold
to children, most at 10 cents a

The girls now have 34,000 names
on a petition asking Congress to
ban such books. Shooting for 80,-
000, they have startled some of
their elders into action.
Offensive at the very least,
trashy comics have been branded
by some officials as contributing
to juvenile delinquency.
Dr. Frederic Wertham, senior
psychiatrist for the New York City
Department of Hospitals until 1953,
"Three boys, 6 to 8 years old,
took a boy of 7, hanged him nude
from a tree, his hands tied behind
him, and then burned him with
matches. They could not find their
first choice for this treatment-a
girl of 6. Probation officers found
they were re-enacting a comic-book
The lust to kill permeates many
of the horror comics.
This type of comic book is under
fire all over the country. The
Senate Committee on Juvenile De-
linquency held hearings on them
this summer. The General Feder-
ation of Women's Clubs is putting
at the top of its winter program
a drive to banish the horror and
crime books from the newsstands.
Several cities and states have
passed or are considering laws
Legitimate comics publishers,
alarmed at public clamor, have
banded together to set up a code
of ethics to be administered by a
But such efforts have failed be-
fore, and no such code can touch
the fly-by-night who publishes a
couple of volumes of depravity,
then folds up - only to reappear
a few weeks later, perhaps in an-
other city, with a new line of
After the Senate committee held
hearings in New York City -
where most of the publishers are-
Chairman Robert C. Hendrickson
"For 10 cents a copy our chil-
dren devour tales - illustrated in
gory detail - of murder, rape,
burglary, extortion and kidnaping.
Half-rotted corpses rise from their
graves to pillage. Vampires go
forth to drink the blood of children.
"Why are such books published?
Because there is money in it. Not
even the Communist conspiracy
could devise a more deadly way
to demoralize, disrupt and confuse
our future citizens."

I regret to state that it will be my
duty to recommend to the Regents
your immediate dismissal from the
staff of the University."
Shortly after receiving the letter
from the President, Davis sent a
letter to some members of the
faculty. Points stressed in refer-
ence to the President's decision to
recommend dismissal, were, "I was
willing to answer questions of in-
tegrity . . . And the Special Ad-
visory Committee had said it re-
quired only answers relating to my
"I did refuse to answer ques-
tions as to my political prefer-
ences ... Public intimidation has
made many people terrified not
merely of Communism, but of any-
thing they have been told might
be construed as socialistic; many
people have been so confused that
they could not think on the sub-
ject if they dared-I will not talk
politics under duress."
"The Communist Party is poli-
tical; if a question concerning it
amounts to both a question of
morality and a question of poli-
tics, my criterion implies that I
must answer the first part and
not the second.
"I think my stand is the best
one. I would hope every teacher in
my place would take it too. But
surely even those who would pre-
fer not to must realize it is not a
Davis followed the President's
advice, to appeal to the Committee
on Intellectual Freedom and In-
tegrity, and wrote the Committee
informing them of his position.
Although the hearing before this
committee, which was held August
11, was not limited to the previous-
ly written charges, Davis felt that
"it was a well conducted hearing."
The report of the Committee
was sent to the President on Aug-
ust 19. August 26 the President
recommended the immediate dis-
missal of Davis to the Regents,
The Federal Grand Jury in
Grand Rapids indicted Davis on
26 charges on August 25. The
former faculty member entered a
plea of innocent before the court
September 13. He was released on
personal bond at that time, and
will be tried in November.
