U.S. Rests Case
In Davis Hearing
Former Rep. Kit Clardy Testifies:
Last Witness Called By Government
By VERNON NAHRGANG
Special to the Daily
GRAND RAPIDS-The first day of the contempt of Congress
trial of former University mathematics instructor H. Chandler Davis
ended yesterday with the government duly resting its case.
Second and final government witness was former Rep. Kit Clardy
(R-Mich), chairman of the sub-committee of the House Un-American
Activities Committee that held hearings in Lansing in May, 1954.
Invokes First Amendment
Davis is being tried because of his stand invoking the First

Suggestions
Made Public
By JAMES ELSMAN, JR.
"Measures for Relieving Ann
Arbor Street Traffic Conditions"
was released recently.
Most important to University
students is a recommendation that
parking be "prohibited between 2
a.m. and 6 a.m. on alternating days
on one side of streets and interven-
ing days the opposite side of Zone
01. (campus area)." In the second
stage of the program, this would
be extended to "both sides" of the
streets in the campus area .
Guy Larcom
According to City Administrator
Guy Larcom, the study by Lloyd
B. Field, a traffic engineering con-
sultant, was contracted by both the
City and the University.
About University parking, Reid
found, "Survey date indicate that
cars not used for transportation
to and from school are responsible
for much of the congestion of
parking facilities in the central
campus areas and fringes. Con-
siderable relief of parking conges-
tion could be realized if owners of
these vehicles were compelled to
park off-street.
Improve Vacant Areas
"This could be accomplished by
improving vacant areas in the
vicinity of the Stadium for dead-
storage type parking and pro-
hibiting unlimited parking in
streets in the campus area.
"Survey data indicate that
posted time-limit regulations are
being violated excessively. There is
also evidence that some of the
parking meters should be set for
shorter parking periods.
Parking Lots
"University parking lots which
were studied all showed a turn-
over of less than two per space
during a ten-hour period. This is
undesirable in view of the number
of hours faculty and employes
spend in school. However, some of
the parking for periods over eight
hours may not be warranted," the
parking suggestions concluded.
Specific proposals included the
establishment of a 500 car lot near
the Stadium and general expansion
of off-street facilities. The report
did not specify whether the City
or the University should tackle
this job. Larcom told The Daily
recently the City didn't think it
their responsibility to provide off-
street facilities for students.
City Council
City Council at this time does
not have legislation before it giving
effect to these recommendations,
remarked Larcom.
University administrators have
as yet announced no plans to add
to their present parking facilities,
but Vice-President of Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis says he will
have something to say "soon."
Restriction of campus on-street
parking at night would aggravate
an already cramped parking situa-
tion, said Lewis.
Reid Report
Among the facts in Reid's report
were these: There are 1,935 curb
parking spaces in the University
area (Assistant to the Dean of Men
Karl Streiff reported he has issued
over 5,000 driving permits to stu-
dents.)

THANKSGIVING TURKEY-Tomorrow University students will
stage a mass exodus from Ann Arbor as the Thanksgiving recess
begins. For most a large turkey is waiting at the end of the
journey. The holiday is spoiled only by the knowledge that it will
be over Monday.

Unusual Preparations
Made for Turkey Day
By WILLIAM HANEY
Campus merchants strongly agree the forthcoming Thanksgiving
holidays hold a brighter prospect of four days vacation from the stu-
dent body than the resolute businessmen have been able to foresee
for years.
A definite correlation was drawn by a restaurant owner between
Michigan's broken Rose Bowl dream and a vacated campus at Thanks-
giving Day. "If Michigan still had a shot at Pasadena," the hash-
slinger said, "a lot of the students would have stayed in Arbor town

Committee
Clardy also said, in answer to
questioning by United States Dis-
trict Attorney Wendell A. Miles,
that the subcommittee had infor-
mation that there were Communist
Party cells at the University in
1954.
Clardy's testimony climaxed an
uneventful day that saw several
motions by Defense Attorney
Phillip A. Wittenburg to dismiss
the indictment. His motion to dis-
miss the case against Davis will
be pending before the court when
the trial resumes at 10 a.m. today.
Witness Called
Only other witness called yes-
terday was Frank S. Tavenner, Jr.,
c o u n s e 1 for the un-American
Activities Committee in Washing-
ton, who said the purpose of the
subcommittee's hearings had been
to investigate Communist infil-
tration in education, among other
fields.
Earlier, in opening remarks,
Wittenburg questioned the per-
tinency of the questions put to
Davis during the subcommittee
hearings held in Lansing in 1954.
Davis said yesterday, following
the trial, he expects it will end
today. Defense will present its
case, and it will be short, Davis
said.
The mathematics instructor, now
teaching at Columbia University,
expected that Judge W. Wallace
Kent would hand down the ver-
dict early this afternoon, at the
latest.

SGC Posts
To Be Filled
Student Government Council will
elect its new executive committee
today.
Meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the
Union, Council members will
choose a president, vice-president
and treasurer.
Names of President Bill Adams,
'57BAd, and Vice-President Janet
Neary, '58, have already been
turned in to SGC Administrative
Secretary Ruth Callahan. Both
will run for their present positions.
Treasurer Joe Collins, '58, said
last night he will "probably" run
again for that office. He also said

Engman, '57, will run for President

Chairman Tom Sawyer, '58, will

Collins also said Mal Cumming,

date for Treasurer, has decided not
to seek that position.

Petitions Due
The deadline for turning in pe-
titions for the exchange scholar-
ship to the Free University of Ber-

The exchange student program
between the University and the
Free University of Berlin is an
educational and cultural exchange
with emphasis on student acti-
vities.
While at the Free University,
the University student receives
tuition, room and board, travel
expenses while in Germany and
a moderate monthly allowance.

tion can be obtained in the Of-
fice of Student Affairs, 1020 Ad-
ministration Building.

Restauranteur's Contention
The restaurant man's contention
was borne out by local travel
agencies. Plane, train and bus
companies reported "a great in-
crease in reservations since Sat-
urday."
Several men's clothing establish-
ments reported the popular Ivy
League garb was being discarded
for more conventional Thanks-
giving attire. "The casual, truly
collegiate man is wearing the more
reserved pin-stripped feature this
year," one habadasher smiled.
However, one of the clothing
competitors disagreed and claimed
instead "Button-down beeks with
a Repp gobble are all the rage this
Thanksgiving."
Campus Barbers
Campus barbers were unanimous
in their opinions of this Turkey
season's hair styles. "Princetons
and Presleys have become obso-
lete," one trimmer said. "The flut-
tered tail effect is definitely the
only acceptable thing."

"We hope we will have a good
turnout this year," KZG president

and the affair just laid a big egg."
