No Action on
Prof. Furry
Harvard Awaits Ruling
On Contempt Charges
Harvard University has declined
to take action against Prof. Wen-
dell H. Furry, physics instructor
Indicted for contempt of the Unit-
ed States. Senate.
Prof. Furry was indicted Dec. 17
when he refused to testify about
others to Sen. Joseph McCarthy's
(R-Wis.) one-man special investi-
gating sub-committee. However,
the Harvard physicist testified
fully about his own activities.
Earlier, Prof. Furry had twice
made use of the fifth amendment
in refusing to answer questions
about himself. At that time, Har-
vard said that although they "de-
plored" use of the amendment,
i they found it legal.
Prof. Furry, who was a member
of the Communist Party from
k 1938 to 1947, was cited on 10
counts, none of which was caused
by refusal to answer questions
about himself, but for refusing
to testify about other persons.
a Pusey Statement
After the indictment Harvard
President Nathan Pusey issued a
statement saying in part, "We
continue to favor full disclosure in
these matters but the legal conse-
quences of his refusal will pre-
sumably be determined by the
courts. So long as the case is
pending we do not think it ap-
propriate to make any further
statement on the subject."
President Pusey noted that Prof.
Furry has not been indicted for
refusing to answer questions about
his own connection with the Com-
munist Party. which he left a num-
ber of years ago.
Also indicted with Prof. Furry
by the McCarthy committee was
Leon Kamin, a research associate
in psychology at McGill Univer-
sity, Montreal, Canadad..
Knew About Past
McGill's President. F. Cyril
James, who also declined to take
action, said in an interview to the
Harvard Crimson, that he "knew
all about Kamin's past testimony,
but the Court-still has to make up
its mind.
According to the Crimson, how-
ever, informed sources at McGill
indicated that Kamin's contract
would probably not be renewed at
? the end of the year.
Kamin was charged on six
counts of contempt, also for re-
fusing to answer- questions about
other persons.
,A 1949 Harvard graduate, Kam-
in said, in a Crimson report, that
he "could not, in good conscience
involve other people in great suf-
fering. The people in question were
not guilty of any crime.
State Cigarette
ELaw Enforced
University students are feeling
the pinch of new attention be-
ing given the 40-ear-old state
law forbidding the sale of cig-
arettes to minors.
Police report many inquiries
* from students and the Student
Legislature over the refusal of
some Ann Arbor merchants to
sell cigarettes to students under
21, following distribution by the
police of the text of the law.
The measure was taken after

many parents complained that
t their young children were able to
smoke without their knowledge.
The campaign is similar to those
held in other parts of the state
and is aimed at children under 17
years old.

tary of Student Government Council.
The appointment, to take effect immediately, was made by
Student Affairs Vice-President James A. Lewis following a meeting
of student leaders held to discuss plans for implementing SGC.

Intruder Flees
An intruder was discovered ran-

Betsy Barbour yesterday.
With a "Pardon me," he hastily
excused himself to the women and
fled out the back door of the dor-

utes later in the basement of
neighboring Helen Newberry. He
apparently escaped from there by
the front door.
The intruder's description was
given to the police but he has not,
as yet, been apprehended.

SGC will include recording pro-

Data Giveni
ByCo liee
LANSING () - Presidents of
Michigan's state-supported col-
leges rushed their efforts yester-
day to give Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams data for an expanded five-
year building program.
Gov. Williams said the Presi-
dents' Committee has estimated
150 million dollars will be needed
to accommodate an expected
32,000 increase in student enroll-
ments by 1960. State colleges now
enroll 47,000 out of 97,000 attend-
ing colleges in Michigan.
According to the presidents the
five-year expansion program
would provide $66,100,000 for the
University of Michigan, $44,900,000
for Michigan State College, five
million for Central Michigan Col-
lege, $8,600,000 for Western Mich-
igan College, $5,100,000 for Mich-
igan State Normal, $2,300,000 for
Northern Michigan College, $9,-
700,000 for the Michigan College
of Mines and $8,200,000 for Ferris
The Governor said neither he
nor the Presidents' Committee
has settled on a method of financ-
ing such an immense building
The presidents feel, Gov. Wil-
liams said, that "Any program
which will give them an assured
annual amount to expansion would
be a step in the right direction.
Now they can't project any of the
plans for the future."
The Governor conceded at his
press conference that such assur-
ance could only be given by a
bond issue or an earmarked tax,
but he said he felt that at least
the Legislature "could endorse" a
long-range program even though
it would not be bound to it.
The college expansion proposals,
Gov, Williams indicated, make it
increasingly difficult to promise
a balanced budget to the Legisla-
ture when it convenes Jan. 12.

State John Foster Dulles for a
second time has reduced the
authority of his controversial se-
curity chief, R. W. Scott McLeod,
this time relieving him of inspec-
tion power over United States
missions abroad.
Department officials said this
move, effective last Friday, fol-
lowed a suggestion by. McLeod
trhee days earlier that it be
done. It also was in line with rec-
ommendations last spring by Dul-
les' Public Committee on Person-

Dulles' action was not to be con-
strued as a blow aimed at McLeod.
He was relieved last spring of his

Benson from his job as agricul-

Henry H. Reichhold, former De-
troit music patron, has withdrawn
his offer of $50,000 for the Berlinf

R e i c h h o ld 's announcement;
came shortly after the Berlin Or-
chestra announced that it had en-
gaged Herbert von Karajan to re-
-place conductor Wilhelm Furt-
waengler who died Nov. 30.
A University source said that
"Reichhold withdrew his money
because Furtwaengler's death de-I
stroyed Reichhold's hopes of see-
ing the German orchestra leader
conduct in this country."
The source noted that Reichholdf
felt that- no one could replace !
Furtwaengler and if the Berlin:

wengler he no longer wanted to
support it.j

For A ll Russian Citizens,
The University, as a part of Washtenaw County, is now out ofE
bounds for Russian citizens.
Action taken Monday by the State Department puts 27 per
cent of United States land area on the "forbidden" list.
In a note to Georgi N. Zaroubin, Soviet ambassador in Wash-
ington, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles listed the approxi-
mately 900 counties restricted from Russian citizens.
Nineteen Michigan counties among which are Wayne, Jack-
son and Monroe, are included in addition to Washtenaw and the

Schalk, at that time director of
the Vienna State Opera. In later
years he conducted at opera hous-
es in Ulm and Aachen anct finally
an invitation came to conduct at
Berlin's Opera House.
Conducts in Festivals

appeared at many of Europe's ma-
jor music festivals, including
Salzburg, Bayreuth and Edun-,
Born in Austria, he makes his
home in Switzerland andacenters
his musical activities in London,
where he is head of the Philhar-
Smonic Orchestra.
Last year von Karajan conduct-
ed at La Scala, toured Japan, re-
corded two operas in London and
took the London Philharmonic on
a 12-concert tour in two weeks

The Democrats hold a 231-203
margin over the Republicans in
the House.
GOP leaders who attended the

controversial issues in the coming
Sen. Styles Bridges (R-NH),
who was named chairman of the
Policy Committee, said it was de-
cided to hold more get-togethers
of all Republican senators than
in the past.
Possible Friction
One possible source of friction
arose, however. Named to the GOP
"Committee on Committees,"
which makes recommendations for
Republican members of standing
committees, were both Sen. Joseph
R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) and newly
elected Sen. Clifford Case R-NJ).
Sen. Case said during the pre-
election campaign he would op-
pose any further service by Sen.
McCarthy on investigating com-
mittees. Sen. McCarthy has been
chairman of the Government Op-
erations Committee and its Per-
manent Investigating subcommit-
He has said he plans to continue
as the ranking Republican mem-
ber of both.
From the Democrats there came
one indication that they expect
the cooperation they have been
promising to work both ways.

Democrats some things were said
and done by Republicans in the
1954 campaign which he could not
forgive or forget.
