AAUP Stand in Dismissal Cases
Cited by Supporters of Resolution
By ERNEST THEODOSSIN
At a closed meeting of the literary college faculty yesterday, a
motion was passed urging the University to give H. Chandler Davis
one year's salary as severance pay.
Introduced by Prof. George Piranian of the mathematics depart-
ment, the resolution will be presented to University President Harlan
H. Hatcher and the Board of Regents for final decision. Davis, a
former mathematics instructor, was dismissed in August for failing
to testify before a House Committee on Un-American Activities.
After a 45-minute discussion the motion was passed by voice
vote of about 80 to 85 per cent of the 200 people present. The literary

Trying
Sigma Chi pledges and the
Ann Arbor police are fast get-
ting acquainted.
Early yesterday morning a
dozen of the fraternity men
were found creating disturb-
ances behind the General Li-
brary. "Planning a raid," the
police blotter said.
An hour later four Sigma
Chis were found in front of the
Union carrying a private mail
box, some chairs and a bench.
The police let the boys carry
the box down to headquarters
and then turned them over to
the fraternity for discipline.

Comparison
On Judiciary
Groups Made
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
in a series of articles Interpreting cur-,
rent problems, plans and functions
' of University student judiciary coun-
cils.)
By JANE HOWARD
Why are there more campus ju-
diciary groups for women than
for men?
A glance at University judicial
structure shows that two coed
groups, Women's Judiciary and
Women's Panel, seem to have no
male counterparts.
t. But the apparent'voids in men's
judicial structure are adequately
covered-within Inter-House and
Interfraternity Councils-leaving
no particular need for new men's
groups to parallel the specific
women's organizations.
Women's Judic Duties
Dealing with primarily cases of
latenesses and failures to "sign
in," Women's Judic meets to co-
ordinate and educate the individ-
ual houses and residence halls, and
to serve as an appellate body for
cases handled by house judiciaries.
Although men have no lateness
regulations, quadrangle residents
find that the IHC Judiciary Coun-
cil assumes functions similar to
those of Women's Judic. Accord-
ing to Stan Levy, '55, IHC presi-
dent, the group hears cases ap-
pealed from the West Quadrangle
Judiciary and from the 12 men's
houses, within quads, which have
individual judiciary groups.
As examples of the IHC coun-
cil's duties, Levy cited "disputes
between two quads, infractions of
house regulations and any discip-
linary matters that aren't psycho-
logical or psychiatric."
IFC Handling
Rule infractions among frater-
nity men either go before indi-
vidual house judiciary groups, set
up at each fraternity's discretion,
or, in what IFC President John
Baity, '55, termed "more serious!
cases," before the IFC Executive!
Board.
Confidential c a s e s involving
women's reputations are brought
before Women's Panel, a three-
member organization set up to
handle the most delicate of wom-
en's University rule infractions.
Although there's no similar "Men's
Panel," confidential cases among
men students are heard by the
five male members of Joint Ju-
diciary Council, who, in'such sit-
uations, take action like that of
Women's Panel.
Secondary School
Heads To Counsel
New 'U' Students
Two thousand new students will

college faculty is composed of
about 500 members.
Faculty Resolution
The motion presented by Prof.
Piranian read as follows:
"Whereas Dr. H. Chandler Davis
was dismissed from his position as
instructor in this college, at a time
when his contract still had one
year to run, whereas no charge
of moral turpitude is involved in
his case, whereas it is the position
of the American Association of
University Professors, expressed by
its secretary, that in such cases
a financial settlement, to the
amount of one year's salary, is
appropriate, and whereas Dr. Da-
vis' dismissal came less than three
weeks before the beginning of the
current semester, and under such
circumstances that it cannot fail
to inflict a special hardship on
him and on his family, therefore
be it resolved that this body urges
that the University pay Dr. Davis
one year's salary."
Motion to Table
Discussion over the proposal
centered around a motion to ta-
ble voting on the Davis case until
the Faculty Senate Subcommittee
report on severance pay would ap-
pear, possibly next semester. Oth-
er faculty members asked that
more information be presented on
Davis' financial condition before
a vote was taken.
Supporters of Prof. Piranian's
proposal argued on "general ethi-
cal grounds," one faculty member
reported. Practice of the Ameri-
can Association of University
Professors to request -severance
pay in such cases was also dis-
cussed.
Last week members of the
AAUP's local branch explained
that in the past faculty dismissed
for "just causes" have received
one year's severance pay.
Turning Point
Commenting on passage of his
proposal, Prof. Piranian said, "I
hope that the passing of the mo-

Up. at Dawn
Election day began at 6 a.m.
this morning for many of Ann
Arbor's Republican and Demo-
cratic party workers.
The first job of the day was to
put up posters of the candidates
100 yards in front of the polling
booths. The restnof tthe day, the
duty of these workers will be to
wait at party headquarters for
any emergency work that is need-
ed.
Parties Render Services
The services rendered by the
parties to their voters are many
and varied. Baby sitters will be
supplied for women with young
children. Drivers are ready to take
party members who do not have
means of transportation to the
polls.
People at party headquarters
will also be on hand to direct
voters to their proper voting place.
At the polls, the clarification of
election laws will be ascertained
by party workers.
Qhallengers-one for every pre-
cinct --will be stationed at the
polling places to make sure there
is no confusion in the counting of
ballots. The county supervisors in
various townships are in charge of
challenging for their particular
area.
Workers Record Voters *
Each party stations workers at
the polls to record the voters. To-
wards evening, these names are
checked against party lists and
those persons who have not al-
ready voted are contacted by the
party.
Members of the campus groups
of Young Republicans and Young
Democrats will be available at
their respective headquarters to
aid the regular workers.I

City Urges
'U' Renew
Inspection
Housing Groups
Donate to Fund
As an aftermath of the fire at
508 Monroe that killed two per-
sons Thursday, City Council last
night said a reinstatement of the
University student housing inspec-
tion program should be made.
According to councilman Dean
Coston, the University has a defi-
nite responsibility to inspect
houses it owns.
Checks for The Dailys Fire
Relief Fund amounting to $20
from Alpha Gamma Delta sorority,
$20 from Pi Lambda Phi frater-
nity and $10 from Pi Beta Phi
sorority were received yesterday
for distribution to 14 evacuees
from the rooming house. Checks
may be brought to the Student
Publications Building.
Coston said during the council'
meeting the University has ex-
pressed its desire to cooperate in
inspections. The building inspector
and his staff should begin inspect-
ing housing units as quickly as
possible, he added.
"The sore spot in Ann Arbor
housing today is the group of old
frame dwellings," Coston asserted.
Prior to World War II, the Uni-
versity had certain authority con-
cerning student housing, he con-
tinued.
"During the war, the situation
got too big for the University to
handle." Up to then, the Univer-
sity had lists of approved and dis-
approved housing, he commented.
Council also approved annexa-
tion of a parcel of undeveloped
land near the North Campus. The
University will pay the cost of im-
provements to the land, Council
reported.
During the meeting Council also
passed on first reading an amend-
ment allowing slightly more liberal
hours for the local curfew.
Free Flu Vaccine
Given to Students
Flu vaccine inoculations are be-
ing given free of charge to all
students who desire them from
8 to 11:45 a.m. and from 1 to 4:45
p.m. through Friday hnd from 8
to 11:45 a.m. Saturday at Health
Service.
It has been recommended by Dr.
Warren Forsythe, director of
Health Service, that all students
obtain these shots.

Give Final Talks
Ike Appeals for Large Turnout;
Stevenson Blasts GOP Record
By The Associated Press
The 1954 battle for Congress ended last night in a last angry
flareup of charges and retorts, and the finale is being coupled with
personal appeals from President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai .E.
Stevenson for a big vote in today's national election.
As the day of decision approached, Democrats still forecast they
would capture control of both houses of Congress. But Republicans
claimed increasing hope of bucking the usual off-year reaction and
repeating their 1952 victory.
The slow-to-start campaign, marked in the beginning at least by'
a good deal of disinterest on the part of the voters, heated up con-
siderabl in the final days and wound up in a verbal slugfest be-
tween the GOP top command and Democratic leader Stevenson.

Father Murray To Speak
The Rev. Fr. John Courtney
Murray, Professor of Theology at

Representing the Roman Catholic
point of view, Father Murray is
editor of Theological Studies and
member of the American Political
Science Association and the Cath-

While serving as religious con-
sultant for the High Commission-
er of Germany in 1950, Father
Murray was awarded the Cardi-
nal Spellman Award for his con-
tributions to theological scholar-
ship.
Dean Liston Pope of the Yale

Rabbi Silver has been an active
participant in social and labor
movements.

Stevenson said also that the Re-
publicans "have not earned a re-
newal" of their mandate by their
record or "by their political tac-
tics in this campaign.
"The present Republican Con-
gress has been singularlynuncon-
structive in dealing not only with
our friends abroad but even with
its own President," he said.
Eisenhower Speaks on TV
President Eisenhower said last
night that no American can "sit
out" today's election for control of
Congress.
In a television broadcast from
Washington with Mrs. Eisenhower
sitting at his side, the President
said that anybody who does not
vote in the election today takes
a chance of having a minority of
the people decide the issues for
them.
"There is no such thing as sit-
ting out an election," Eisenhower
declared.
He added that "if you do not
vote for what you believe in" it
is easily possible for minorities to
take over and establish policy for
the next two years and possibly
long beyond that.
Mitchell Accuses GOP
Democratic Chairman Stephen A.
Mitchell accused the Republican
Congressional Campaign Commit-
tee last night of distributing a piece
of "malicious fakery"-a spot ra-
dio announcement which tells
listeners that Moscow "orders" the
defeat of Republican candidates.
Calling it a "100 per cent false-
hood passed off as an actual re-
cording of events," Mitchell said
he would demand that Congress
and the Federal Communications
Commission investigate.
He also said he would have law-
yers look into the possibility of
legal action against stations which
have carried "these fake drama-
tizations."
Blood Examination

Voting Study
To Examine
Party Shift
By DEBRA DURUHSLAG
How will the "party-switchers"
vote in today's election?
In the 1952 election study con-'
ducted by the Survey Research
Center, it was found that one out-
,of every five votes for' President
Dwight D. Eisenhower came from
a Democrat. The big question now
is how definite was that switch.
Impi'ortant Implications
Prof. Angus Campbell, director
of the Survey Research Center,
says that the answer to this ques-
tion will have important implic-
tions for both parties,
If voters who previously consid-
ered themselves Democrats decide
that they still like Ike, then Presi-
dent Eisenhower may have brought
about the same shift to the Repub-
lican party that Franklin D. Roose-
velt accomphished for the Demo-
crats in the 30's.
Studies conducted by the Center
have determined that the largest
single item generally influencing
a voter is his party affiliation. Is-
sues and personalities are other im-
portant factors, with the three mo-
tivations varying a great deal from
one election to another.
A mass movement in all classes
of voters, largely because of the
Eisenhower personality, d e t e r-
Imined the 1952 victory. However,
party loyalty, Prof. Campbell be-
lieves, will be more important in
the present election.
Although no large-scale analysis
is now being made with the scope
of the $90,000 1952 study, sever-
al political questions have been in-
cluded in the Center's semi-annual
interim study.
Democratic Cross-Overs
Center researchers are particu-
larly interested in determining how
many Democrats have made a"
more or less permanent cross-over
into Republican ranks. For exam-
ple, one of the questions aimed at
determining in what party the vot-
er considers himself, correlates
this with past and present voting
behavior.
Important issues of the congres-
sional campaign have been at-
tacked with questions like "What
would you say is the best (and
worst) thing the Republican party
has done in the last two years?
nThe type of questionnaire used
inCenter interviews is aimed at
developing psychologically neutral
questions which do not prejudice
the interviewee. Open end ques-
tions which allow a wide-range of
answers are also found to be the
most effective. For example,.the
question on Senator Joseph R. Mc-
Carthy asks if his support of a
candidate would make any differ-
ence to the voter.

EXPECT 45 MILLION AT POLLS:

Voters To Choose Governors, Congressmen

By RONA FRIEDMAN

More than 45 million citizens
are expected to visit the polls to-
day to pick governors for 33 states,
37 Senators and 432 members for
the House of Representatives.
As vigorous campaigning drew
to a close both Chairman Leonard
W. Hall of the Republican Nation-
al Committee, and Chairman

Stephen A. Mitchell of the Demo-
cratic National Committee issued
statements of confidence:
"If the voters go to the polls on
Tuesday in the numbers we con-
fidently expect," said Hall, "we
ill gain at least three seats in
the Senate and fifteen or more
seats in the House."
"I believe," Mitchell said, "that

the Democratic party will gain
four seats in the Senate, 25 seats
in the House, and elect at least
eight additional governors, includ-
ing Averell Harriman in New
York."
Campaign issues have not been
dramatic, John White of the po-
litical science department pointed
out.

Republicans have attempted to
identify the Republican Party with
Eisenhower and to capitalize on
the end of the Korean War, he
continued.
Apparently they felt that these
appeals were not enough and un-
der the leadership of Vice-Presi-
dent Richard Nixon supplemented
them in the concluding days of
the campaign with the 1952 for-
mula, K. 1, C 3, Korea, Commu-
nism, corruption and control, he
added.
Democratic appeals have been
largely based on the domestic eco-
nomic issues of unemployment and
falling farm prices, he said. They
have also capitalized on the tra-
ditional loss of power by the major
party in an. off-year election.
Tn vnnn t nf_ n.. al e nn

and nine Democrats are considered
safe.
Of the 17 remaining doubtful
states, 15 are Republican and two
are Democratic. The Congres-'
sional Quarterly gives the Demo-
crats an edge in both races and
gives the Republicans an edge in
only five.
The ten crucial races are in
Arizona, Colorado, ' Connecticut,
Kansas, Maryland, Nevada, New
Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania,
and Wyoming.
"From the national point of
view, the New York gubernatorial
race is the most interesting,"
White said. If Averell Harriman
wins, his hand, as well as the lib-
eral element, will be strengthened
in the Democratic Party. Converse-
