McCARTHY:
Censure Brings Politics to Major Crossroads

M'Football Record Shows Ups and

By MICHAEL BRAUN
TOMORROW, when Senator Jo-
seph R. McCarthy meets his
peers ,on the floor of the Senate,
the most controversial political
figure of the decade will be at the
crossroads.
Since that day in Wheeling when
he leaped into the headlines by
"naming names" Senator McCar-
thy has been on the offensive. To-

morrow he assumes the role of de-
fender.
Everyone has 'an opinion of
SenatorMcCarthy. People who
do not know or care which candi-
date won last week's election are
ready to debate over the junior
Senator from Wisconsin.
It's easy to talk about Senator
McCarthy. It's easy to garner an_

opinion from almost anyone. Prag-
matically however, it is the 96
members of the 83rd United States
Senate who will render the ulti-
mate decision.
Senator McCarthy said last week
that he is convinced that the Sen-
ate will vote to censure him. He
indicated that he will take his de-
fense to the American people.

The Senator said that he does
not expect more than a "very few"
senators will go into the special
session "with an open mind."
And yet, of 35 replies to a Daily
questionnaire which asked which
Way they would vote on the cen-
sure motion, 30 senators replied
that in view of the quasi-judicial
nature of the proceedings it would

not be correct to answer before the
Senate convenes.
Senator Homer Ferguson (R-
Mich.) replied that "Some people
have criticized Senator McCarthy
for what they thought was jumping
the gun before all the evidence
was considered. I believe that I and
the Senate must be careful to
avoid any hasty or ill-considered
action."
SEVERAL SENATORS however,
did indicate an opinion as to
the ramifications of the hearing.
What follows are statements from
some of McCarthy's senatorial
jury.
Statement of Senator Wayne
Morse (Ind.-Ore.):
"The report of the Select Com-
mittee to Study Censure Charges
appointed by the Senate to investi-
gate the various charges against-
Senator McCarthy has left no room
for doubt about the fact that Mc-
Carthy has conducted himself in a
manner unbecoming a Senator.
"The report of the Committee
will unquestionably support the
adoption of a resolution to censure
by the Senate. I am gratified that
in several particulars the findings
of the Committee support the docu-
mentation submitted by me at the
outset of the hearings."
Senator Sam Reynolds (R-
Neb.) replied that "I am al-
ready on record on ae floor of
the Senate as stating that Com-
munists and their fellow travel-
ers can get no sympathy out of
any vote I cast. Just advise me
how the Communists would like
Senator Reynolds to vote and I
will vote the other way."
According to Senator William
Jenner (R-Ind.) ; "The attack on
fSenator McCarthy is not a personal
attack. It is the front line of a-con-
tinuing attack on the United States

By PHIL DOUGLIS
HUSKY young Irv Pond wheeled
sharply, and started up the
field with his eyes bent on the goal
line.
Zigzagging his way through the
opposing players, the gent in knee
breeches, button-down jersey and
flat-topped maize and blue hat,
was nearly at the goal when a de-
luge of wildeyed spectators poured
out of the rickety stands and
blocked his way.
Bewildered, Pond kept on go-
ing, and despite the milling
crowds he crossed the goal line,

and confusion reigned. When
police restored law and order the
final score was posted--Michi-
gan-7, Racine-2.
That Michigan - Racine game,
played before only 500 spectators
in Chicago's old White Stocking
Park was the first of 427 victories
to follow.
The Ann Arbor campus has pro-
duced 33 unanimous All-Ameri-
cans. Eighteen times the snarling
Wolverine has ruled the Western
Conference, and would have an
even better Big Ten mark if mys-
terious circumstances had not

forced Michigan to withdraw for
10 long years.
U NDER such early coaches as
Murphy, Barbour, McCauley,
Ferbert and Lea, Maize and Blue
teams compiled an average rec-
ord through the 1880's and the
Gay '90's, but it was not until the
turn of the century that the pow-
erhouse football, which made Ann
Arbor the grid capital of Ameri-
ca, was born.
In 1901, an unknown profes-
sional coach from down in West
Virginia arrived in Ann Arbor

to take charge of football, his
name--Fielding Yost.
Seven All-Americans graced the
Michigan roster in this era; men
such as the immortal Willie Hes-
ton, the fabled German Shulz and
Johnny Maulbetsch, Stan Wells,
Jim Craig and Al Benbrook.
Included in that reign of vic-
tory was a 49-0 victory over Stan-
ford in the first Rose Bowl game
in history back in 1901. Little
did observers realize that 47 years
later Michigan would once again
return to the Arroyo Seco and

SEN. JOSEPH R. McCARTHY
.., the defendant
Congress which will end only in
the destruction of the Communists
or of the Congress."
Jenner continued, "It is my be-
lief that Congress must now take
cognizance of this unremitting
campaign to destroy it.
"The Select Committee has care-
fully analyzed the evidence before
it, but the most important evidence
was not included. This is the fact
that the Communist world conspir-
acy is engaged in an unremitting
attempt to destroy the political in-
stitutions of the United States, es-
pecially the Congressional Investi-
gating Committees, and the princi-
pal spokesman for the Communist
apparatus have frankly put the dis-
crediting of Senator McCarthy at
the top of a program which con-
cerns every member of Congress."
Senator George Smathers (D-
Fla.) comments that "The issue
was clearly presented, the facts
objectively and quietly gathered,
the evidence from both sides heard
in public meeting, the evidence
weighed by judicial men in a judi-
cial atmosphere. I believe that the
great majority of the Senate is
convinced, just as I am, that it
would be completely illogical to
turn our backs upon our own com-
mittee."
In regard to the expected deci
sion Smathers added: "It will be
one of the Senate's finest hours,
sustaining the. American tradition
of fair play and fairhanded jus-
tice."
