Meader Asks Investigation
oOf Military at Willow Run


'No Longer What I Was'-Gibson





Rep. George Meader said that
he hopes to have congressional in-
vestigating committee look into the
situation at the Willow Run and
the Detroit Wayne airports.
"It seems the facts warrant an
investigation ,by a congressional
committee," Rep. Meader said
speaking before the Ann 'Arbor
Chamber of Commerce yesterday.
Certain commercial airlines have
threatened to transfer their op-
erations to the Detroit Wayne Ma-
jor airport due to the fact that the
Air Force started using Willow
Run last year and will soon ini-
tiate a jet training program there.
There is some question on whether
the Navy intends to base at Wil-
low Run at any time in the fu-
ture and the problem of overburd-
ening it could conceivably impose.
"I think too much attention has
been paid to the separation of
civilian from military flying,"
Rep. Meader said. He noted that
during a recent lay-over he made
at the Pittsburgh airport Air Force
jets taking off did not seem to
bother the airlines in any way.
He noted that the Detroit Wayne
Major airport received 52% of all
Federal airport aid to the state
last year and that it was follow-

ing a position established many
years ago to promote the switch.
The Air Use Panel that was
formed to look into the situation
was stacked he continued. The
panel consisted of four air force
representatives and only two civil-
ian members.
Rep. Meader said he hopes to
have a congressional investigation
because it seems that improvement
of Detroit Wayne Major airport
may cost more than it would war-
rant and be a "waste of the tax-
payers' money." Previously he had
introduced a bill that was rejected
to limit Federal aid to the Wayne
Rep. Meader ,answered other
questions concerning restrictions
on small business at the Chamber
meeting. "I suspect they would
have a hard time extending the
minimum wage coverage to retail-
ers," he stated in reply to query.
Quadrants Tap
East Quadrangle Quadrants last
night tapped two persons to its
service honorary.
Karen Grooms, '58N, and Sara
Gullette, '58, were the women
called by the Quadrants.

Say Reds
Not Sincere
College students have declared
their skepticism of the Russian
"Peace Offensive by nearly ten to
one in a nation-wide survey by
the Associated Collegiate Press.
In the light of the developments
at Geneva, the students were ask-
ed, "Do you think the Russians are
sincere in their desire for peace, or
do you think they are merely
stalling for time and have no in-
tention of giving up their plans for
world conquest?"
Seventy-five per cent said they
believed the Russians are bluffing
while one eight per cent said they
thought the Soviets are sincere.
Coeds tended to be less certain
of Russia's hypocrisy than men,
with 68 per cent saying they doubt-
ed the Russians as contrasted with
80 per cent for the men.
In responding to the poll, stu-
dents stressed past behavior of
the Soviet Union and basic aims of
Communist doctrine.
A student of Iowa State College
explained, "Their plans for world
conquest have not been altered.
This is only a change in tactics."
At the University of Nebraska, a
coed said, "It would be entirely
contrary to their basic beliefs to
want peace."

the greater part of the thirty-five
months outside the walls as a
trusty. I had not been inside
long enough to suffer from its
deadly monotony, strict discipline,
brutality, tasteless meals, constant
surveillance, fear, which, collect-
ively, in those days, had been Colo-
rado's idea of confinement with
a purpose.
In 1949, in the village of Dex-
ter, Michigan, a few miles west
of Ann Arbor, I stuck a gun under
the nose of the manager of one
Kroger store in town and relieved
him of the money in the safe.
Two weeks later I was arrested,
accused of the robbery, eventually
tried by jury, convicted, then sen-
tenced to serve from 20 years to
life in Southern Michigan Prison.

"WHY," FREE world friends
have asked, "did you elect to
stand trial, knowing you were
A formidable question, that, in-
duced in the belief that a court
will often give a lighter sentence
when the guilty "cops a plea" in-
stead , of forcing an expensive,
time-consuming jury trial.
Because I now for the first time
answer the question publicly, which

admission could, in turn, cause a
possible perjury charge against my
witnesses, I wish to impress these
facts: To understand why I stood
trial, we have only to contemplate
that self-preservation is the first
law of life. This law of nature,
not subjugated in the instant
case, along with the fact that wit-
nesses for the defense would testi-
fy that I was 325 miles from the
scene of the robbery just three
and a half hours after it had been
committed, does answer the ques-
My witnesses were not lying
when they testified; they thought
they were siding an innocent man.
And as far as I could determine
during the trial, one man only
suspected the truth. The prose-
cutor expressed his belief that I


had traveled by air in order to
establish the alibi I used. I had-
a private plane. But the best laid
plans of mice and men .. .

I'M NOT ONE bit proud of the
story I've told here. It is not a
pretty story; and most of it is
true only because I could not see
beyond my own big nose and be-
cause two and two always came
out five.
I am no longer what I was when
I came here. These seven years
have taught me that I was a use-
less appendage-a thing that was
not wanted, a moral and a mental
mess. Today I understand fully
why crime is a noxious way to
make a living, and I am paying a
sure and heavy price for the les-
