sudden spirit of brotherhood, Flet-
cher decided to rescue one of the
"I Went down to pick it up,"
Fletcher explained. "It was on the
street side of the sidewalk and
about ten feet from the officer"
"I picked it up and carried it
across the sidewalk," he continued.
"While I had the bike, I turned
gust in time to see the policenan
running at me."

According to witnesses, 'both
Fletcher and the patrolman, Don
Curtis, fell to the ground.
Fletcher says he was poked'in

The policeman got the bicycle.
However, the incident didn't end
there. Fletcher went to the police
station to lodge a complaint
against the officer.
Curtis Comments
Lt. Krasny also pointed out that
the departmient could take a'ctio
if the investigation warranted it.
P a t r o l m an Curtis, however,
didn't see anything in the incident.
"There wasn't anything to it," he
said. "He just got in the way and
then fell to the ground.
"He had no right to take the
bike," Curtis continued. "These
fraternity smarties try to get away
with everything."
"The irony of it all," Fletcher
lamented, "is that my bike had a
license on it and it was stolen ten
days ago and k haven't gotten it
back yet."

Top farm spokesmen for both
parties were lukewarm in 'their
comments on the compromise dur-
ing the Senate debate, which last-
ed less than an hour.
Senators Comment

Asked by reporters earlier whe-
ther anything in the compromise

Ellender exclaimed: "No, great
God, No!"
The senator reported "every-
thing was harmonious" as the
committee finished ironing out a
number of differences between the
bill passed by the Senate Friday
night and the measure approved
by the House May 3.
Ellender said the biggest trade
in the conference was the Sen-

Special To The Daily
DETROIT-A four run uprising
in the eighth inning broke a 3-3
tie and sent the Michigan baseball
team back to Ann Arbor with a
victory over the University of De-
troit, yesterday.
The Wolverines hadn't collected
a hit since the first inning but
found the range ih the eighth.
With one out, Steve Boros smack-
ed a hot grounder over the third
base bag and wound up on second.
Al Sigman followed it up with
a single between short and third
and when the Titan left fielder
bobbled the ball, Boros came home
and Sigman moved to second.
Bob Sealby came up with the
third straight hit as he sent one
over the right fielder's waving
arms.. AsSigman scored, Sealby
streaked for third but was out on
a fine throw.
The Wolverines weren't finished
htough as Don Rembiese was
safe at first when the shortstop
fumbled his grounder. Jim Clark
looped a single over second base
and when the center fielder let
the ball roll thru his legs Rembiesa
crossed the plate and Clark stop-
ped at third.
Moby Benedict's grounder took
a high bounce and by the time it
came down, Clark had scored and
Benedi t was safe at first. Bruce
Fox followed with the same type
of hit but Howie Tommelein flew
out to end the inning.
The Wolverines grabbed a quick
lead with three runs in the first

-Ding and publishing duties, but that
this classroom freedom should not
include introduction of irrelevant
controversial matter.
However, Prof. Hawley said that
Academic Freedom is often con-
fused with civil liberties. In the
case of the Nickerson-Davis con-
troversy, the issue did not involve
the men's classroom performance
and therefore was not based on
Academic Freedom.
"Although we sometimes don't
realize it," he said, "the problem
is often one of the civil right to
free speech and assembly, not
Academic Freedom."
Student's Role
Pointing 'out that Academic
Freedom is, not guaranteed us by
any statute'" or Athe Constitution,
Prof. Rice laid emphasis on the
student's role in preserving it.
The student should be quickly
inducted into an understanding of
Academic Freedom, he said. Then
it is his responsibility to see that
it is respected and spread.
"The classroom imposes some
Lecture Committee
Outside the classroom, he said,
the situation is somewhat differ-
ent. Using the Lecture Committee
as an example, he expressed the
opinion that the student has a.
right to hear all sides of an issue.
However, if the views expressed
are generally out of favor, it would
be a mistake to have a particular
university department sponsor. the
speaker, for fear that the spon-
sorship would imply approval.
'Doors Open'
But Prof. Rice urged a continu-
ance of pressure "to keep the
doors open and the way clear" for
all speakers.
Dealing with the problem of
whether or not a Communist
should be allowed to teach, Prof.
Hawley said, "The question is: can
the man handle his scholarly
tasks creatively and fruitfully-

yesterday, but University students handled themselves in traditional
Afternoon temperatures soared Ito 86 degree on the warmest day
of the year in contrast with evening thunderstorms which provided
a moment of relief. During the day, however, practical jokers and
sunbathers reigned supreme.
At some undetermined hour yesterday morning, someone dump-
ed soap flakes, detergent, or some other form of cleansing agent into
the fountain between the League and Hill Auditorium. By 11 a.m.,
suds has risen to a height of two feet in some areas.
Slumbering coeds dotted the Hill while residents of Betsy Bar-
bour and Helen Newberry stretched out on the lawn.
Meanwhile, atop South Quad's ninth floor sundeck, some 30
male sunbathers, some clad in shorts, raised a cheer when they
learned they were going to be photographed.
Males interviewed during the evening voiced mingled feelings
on the weather. Bob Karchevski, '57A&D, said "It was abnormally
cold for the month of April, and as a result summer seems to be early
this Year."
