Rutherford
Decision Still
Not Certain
Defendant's Loyalty
Affirmed by Seven
Undecided yesterday was the
suspension of Jesse Rutherford as
a "security risk" from the Vet-
erans Administration Hospital
here.
' The closed hearing on Ruther-
ford's dismissal as an aide from
the hospital ended at 5 p.m. yes-
terday without an announced de-
cision. Decision would be given
- quick" consideration the Security
Board said.
During yesterday's session, seven
witnesses testified to Rutherford's
loyalty, his lawyer, Charles Lock-
wood of Detroit, said.
The witnesses said Rutherford
was not a Communist, as the Vet-
r erans Administration security of-
fice has declared. Rutherford in-
sisted at the hearing his work at
the hospital as an aide was rou-
tine and there could be no ques-
tion of security.
One year ago Lockwood repre-
sented 2nd Lt. Milo Radulovich,
University physics student' who
was suspended and then rein-
stated by the Air Force.
Rutherford has called charges
against him "lies and half-truths,"
, while Dr. Morley Beckett, man-
ager of the hospital, said the aide
was suspended on orders of the
VA's security section.
Among the charges against
Rutherford is that he was sup-
ported by the Communist Party
in his campaign for the state leg-
islature on the Progressive Party
ticket in 1952. Rutherford has
said, "naturally, I have no idea
who supported me."
Rutherford has claimed he
never was a member of the CP or
any of its front organizations.
Another charge against Ruther-
ford was that he spoke at a pub-
lic meeting in which Paul Robe-
son was the main speaker. Ruther-
ford said recently he never spoke
during the 1952 event.
} However, he has said he appear-
ed on the platform with Robeson,
along with all other local Pro-
gressive Party candidates.

MSU Change
LANSING (MP-The bill
changing the naine of Michigan
State College to Michigan State
University was signed into law
today by Lt. Gov. Philip A.J
Hart.rE
The name change does not
become effective until July 1.
Hart signed the bill in the
absence of Gov. Williams, who
is touring the Near East.
The signing was televised
with (MSC) President Dr. John +
A. Hannah and interested leg-
islators attending the ceremony.
Meanwhile, there has been no
word as yet whether the Uni-
versity of Michigan Board of
Regents will ask for an injunc-
tion to prevent the change.
Members of the board have
said they are considering such
a step.
Seniors at the college voted to
have their diplomas issued in
the name of the University in-
stead of the college.
Panhellenic
Coners 60
Year Period,
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sev-
enth in a series of interpretive arti-
cles on women's student government)
By PHYLLIS LIPSKY
Composed of 19 sororities and
representing over 1000 affiliated
women on campus Panhellenic As-
sociation has a history covering
the past 60 years.
It had its origin in the inter-
sorority meetings which were first
held about 190, eight years after
the first sorority was formed.
Panhel was formed to synchro-
nize sorority rushing systems and
this still remains one of its most
important functions. In recent
years, however, the organization
has attempted to expand its scope.
"Reason for Existence
President Debby Townsend, 156,
called coordination of rushing the
organization's "reason for exist-
ing" but pointed out that in re-
cent years it has attempted to ex-
pand its scope.
"We see ourselves as a com-
munity service group rather than
entirely a social group," she de-

Hoover Says
U.S.CanNot
Leave UN
Believes We Must
Work With Russia
WASHINGTON (P) - Ex-Presi-
dent Herbert Hoover said yester-
day this country cannot abandon
the United Nations even though
the UN "has not fulfilled our
hopes" as a mechanism for peace.
The former President told the
Senate Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, too, he no longer favors ex-
pelling Russia, from the United
Nationsnbecause of that country's
repeated use of the veto.
Holds Out Hope
"I think we've got to go on and
worry with the Russians in the UN
in the hope that things will get
better," he said.
He gave the opinion that no
worthwhile revision is possible un-
less there is "a grea' change in
the whole Communist attitude."
But he did suggest some specific
changes - including a proposal
that "all independent nations"
should have membership in the
UN. He noted that 14 such coun-
tries have been barred by Soviet
vetos.
Revision Considered
The next sesssion of the UNI
General Assembly must decide
whether a conference should be
called to consider revising the 10-
year-old UN charter.
The Foreign Relations Commit-
tee has held hearings in various
sections of the country to get the
general American reaction toward
possible changes. Former President
Truman appeared before the com-
mittee here last Monday, Mrs.
Franklin D. Roosevelt is scheduled
to testify today.

The reason for the hurry-up
visit of Walter S. Robertson, as-

There were reports in Washing-

Communist Chou
BANDUNG, Indonesia OP)-Cey-
lon's Prime Minister Sir John Ko-
telawala told the Communists yes-
terday to dissolve the Cominform
if they really want peaceful co-
existence with the West.
He singled out the Cominform as
a main organ of "Communist col-
onialism."
Kotelawala, who has a Com-
munist problem of his own at
home, heads his small island coun-
try's delegation to the Asian-Afri-
can conference.
Advance Statement
Kotelawala got the jump on Red
'China's Premier Chou En-lai and
India's Prime Minister Nehru, who
supports the Communists' drive for
coexistence. The Ceylon Prime
Minister gave out his statement in
advance of discussions" of East-
West coexistence by the Political
Committee. Chou insisted in his
remarks at the conference's ple-
nary session that the Communists
are eager to coexist peacefully
with the West.
Informants said that when the
58-year-old Ceylon leader first
brought up his proposal for dis-
mantling the Cominform in an ad-
dress to the Political Committee's
closed session, Chou leaped to his
