Faculty Were Undergrads
-Many of the faculty members were undergraduates, others were
in the initial stages of their teaching careers. Reflecting upon the
New Deal a quarter century after its birth, they emphasize its effects
on today's economic and poitical philosophy.
"The New Deal gave a tremendous impetus to the whole concept
of a welfare state, and a feeling that government should accept the
obligation of trying to eliminate some of the worst features of a
capitalistic society," Prof. Joseph Kallenbach of the political science
department said.
Government Now Responsible in Economics
The government as conceived now has a responsibilty to maintain
the economic welfare of the society, he observed.

".. no industrialized country today has adopted or is likely to
adopt a deliberate policy of neglecting its indigent aged on the grounds
that they have failed to save during their productive years and do
not now contribute to production. Yet as recently as 25 years ago,
these were the major arguments of the groups opposing social insur-
ance in America."
the Depression generation had an experience it will never forget
and even though subsequent unemployment, such as appears during
this recession, may not be as great as during the '30's, they will
respond politically, Prof. Wilensky added.
"Today, both political parties basically accept the New Deal
plilosophies although they may differ on specific aspects," Prof. Harold
Levinson of the economics department observed.
Government Answers Salvation Plea
Prof. Daniel McHargue of the political science department called
the New Deal the national government's answer to demands of the

Paper Hits
By Dean
After more than two weeks of
silence on the subject, the Michi-
gan State News devoted its lead
story and an editorial to a story
in The Daily that MSU Dean of
Students Thomas King had tried
to censor the News.
The Daily also said King
threatened to punish a student,
after his letter appeared in the
paper criticizing the Dean.
In an editorial signed by Mel
Reiter, State News Editor, (a de-
parture frome normal practice) the
News said, ". . . as long as King
is permitted to call in students as
he pleases and threaten them with
libel and suspension, we are .all
dead victims of an educational
hypocrisy worse than treason."
"Dean King's finer contribution
to MSU will eventually be forgot-
ten," the editorial said earlier,
"for no man can be honored aft-
er imposing the threat to any of,
our freedoms."
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea told
the News that he thought it un-
fortunate that The Daily inter-
vened, but, he continued, "I un-
derstand the interest of our stu-
dent publication in matters of
press freedom, regardless of where
such matters arise.
"It would be of interest to any
of our conference. dailies. If a
paper is to represent student
opinion, it cannot be restricted,"
Dean Rea said.

Report Says
City Paving
Done Right,
Independent Survey
Clears Up Charges
The City Council last night
heard an independent engineering,
report term the city's 1957 Bitumi-
nous Surfacing Program "well
planned and executed."
The independent survey, con-
ducted by W. G. Lanterman, a'
local professional engineer, was
initiated in response to charges
made at the last regular' Council
meeting that an over-assessment
was made in materials actually
The report disclosed that the
total amount of street surface
paved required 7,742% tons of
paving materials as compared to
7,873 tons which were actually
paid for, a discrepapcy of only
1% per cent.
According to City Administrator
Guy Larcom, "the report confirms
the accuracy of the City's records
. . . (and) shows that the. con-
tractor delivered a surfacing job'
that was in accord with the City
specifications and was not exces-
sive by engineering standards, and
that therefore there was no ex-
cessive cost."
Commenting on the quality of
the surfacing, Lanterman's report
states "the pavement consists of a
good, dense, well-compacted as-
phaltic concrete which is properly
blended and proportioned."
The report did note, however, a
technical inconsistency in the city
specifications and some localized
surfacing variations.

A "Swastika," Adolph Hitler's Nazi Party symbol, was discovered

Several Hillel Foundation posters were reportedly stamped -with

At the same time, posters announcing an address entitled "The
