Ban on Oppenheimer
Cited at Washington U
SEATTLE (R) - The University
of Washington announced yester-
day it has been forced to cancel
an important scientific conference
April 7-8 because of its ban against
Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer.
The University said seven of
eight Eastern scientists who were
to have led the conference signed
a round-robin letter refusing to
appear because of the Oppenheim-
er ban.
Cited 'Governmental Relationship',
Dr. Henry Schmitz, university
president, recently barred Oppen-
heimer's appearance as a guest
lecturer in the spring because of
what he termed the atomic physi-
cist's "governmental relationship."
Oppenheimer was denied access
last year to atomic secrets on se-
curity grounds.
The "conference, listed as a
"Symposium on the Molecular Ba-
sis of Enzyme Action," had been
expected to draw more than 200
scientists from all parts of, the
country, said Dr. Hans Neurath,
head of the university Medical
School's Department of Biochem-
Scientists Listed

First steps were taken last night toward administrative organi-
zation of Student Government Council.
After presentation by Hank Berliner, '56, SC voted to send
his proposed new admxinistrative structure to a special committee.

They also objected to the gov-

citizen was inert and therefore
had to be pushed to get a job
done," asserted Prof. Inkeles.
Constant Sacrifice
Disapproval of constant sacri-

material rewards were frowned
upon by the people, Prof. Inkeles
He added that many of the peo-
ple opposed the frightful toll of
responsibility that they were sub-
jected to.
Manufacturers, who were sub-
ject to arrest or "dockment" of
pay, and doctors, responsible for
the issuing of only necessary sick
leaves to workers, were examples
cited by Prof. Inkeles of people
affected by this policy.
Importance of the welfare state
to those former citizens and their
hostility to capitalism were some
of the regime's strong points,
mentioned by Prof. Inkeles.

Bill Moved
To Judiciary,
'No Implications'
Seen by Hatcher
Almost twice as many Univer-
sity students oppose the proposed
Michigan State College-to Univer-
sity name change as favor it it
was found yesterday, but a large
segment of the campus, popula-
tion just "doesn't care."
A Daily random sample of stu-
dent opinion questioning 273 cam-
pus students revealed that 51 per
cent (139) oppose the change, 26,
per cent '(71) favor it, and 23 per
cent (63) prefer to remain neu-
Many of those opposing said,
however, that it was the similarity
of names, not the title "Univer-
sity" to which they objected.
Hope Dimmed in Senate
In Lansing, meanwhile, a Uni-
versity attempt to defeat the Sen-
ate bill which would establish
Michigan State University looked
considerably dimmer yesterday,
By amajority of two, the Sen-
ate decided to send the MSU bill
to the Judiciary Committee, in-
stead of the Education Commit-
tee where it would normally'go.
The bill's backers, fearing that
the Education committee headed
by Sen. Don Vander Werp (R-Frm-
mont) would kill it, were highly
optimistic about the switch.
Headed by Sen. Harry F. Hittle
(R-East Lansing), five of the seven
Judiciary members were reported
ready to report the bill out.
Will Give 'U' Hearing
Hittle said the committee could
not consider the measure until
next week.
"Of course, we will give the Uni-
versity of Michigan people a hear-

"We always grant requests for
