Board Votes
Grad House
Conversion
(Continued from Page 1)
for the house, settled primarily
around four points:
1) that the change would leave
the door open for using the resi-
dent freshmen as "guinea pigs" for
sociology and psychology experi-
ments;
2) that an unwanted additional
burden would be placed on the
faculty;
3) that the absence of upper-
classmen would remove a stabiliz-
ing influence and require too much
"disciplinary staff";
4) that house continuity and
tradition would be destroyed..
Those favoring the plan pointed
out that. currently 50 per cent of
the freshmen leave the residence
halls after their first year. It was
thought that by separating the
freshman group from the upper-
classmen who had decided to re-
main in the residence halls a cer-
tain amount of tension would be
relieved and the upperclass houses
would become stronger, and per-
haps more appeal.
Further arguments contended
that upperclassmen do not neces-
sarily create a good "image" for
freshmen to follow in their adjust-'
ment. It was also suggested that
if faculty were given specific as-
signments and more spare time
perhaps they would accept the
recommended counseling program
more enthusiastically.

the irregularities specified by the
investigating committee, especial-
ly on pp. 62 and 66 of the Report.
Approves Conclusion
6) The Chapter notes with sat-
isfaction that the Report agrees
with the recommendation of the
Senate Committees relating to
Professor Nickerson and with the
spirit of the Senate resolution of
October 5, 1954. It also notes with
approval the conclusion of the Re-
port that in the case of Dr. Davis
the charge of communism was not
sustained by substantial evidence.
It notes further the difficulties
raised by the issue of candor, or
the obligation of disclosure - a
matter of great importance in the
case of Dr. Davis, whose attitude,
and the reactions which it in-
duced in members of the Senate
Committees, was crucial. It calls
attention to the fact that the Uni-
versity ,prior to the 1954 hearings,
had made no pronouncement on
this point adequate for the Com-
mittees' guidance, and that there
is needed an even fuller clarifica-
tion of principles than the AAUP
has subsequently provided.
Criticism Proper
7) The Chapter believes that
the University Administration is
properly criticized for the undue
postponement of action on the im-
portant issue of severance, pay.
8) Some members of the Chap-
ter wish to draw attention to the
continuing uncertainty as to the
University Administration's atti-

l
I

tude on some important points re-
lating to. academic freedom and
tenure (e.g., policy regarding sev-
erance pay). Others, however, are
convinced that relations between
the Administration and the fac-
ulties have improved significant-
ly since 1954. They make a point
that there have been changes in
the membership of the Board of
Regents, and believe that if dis-
missal cases were now to be adju-
dicated, they would be conducted
in a satisfactory manner. There
is general agreement that mem-
bers of the faculties must con-
tinue to be vigilant in matters of
academic freedom and tenure,
and vigorous in the expression of
their views.
9) The Chapter is divided in its
opinions as to whether censure of
the University Administration, if
it is proposed and voted by the
AAUP, will have beneficial effects
upon the University at this time
and in the present circumstances..
A majority concludes that it
would be improper for the Chap-
ter to make any recommendation
in this matter, since it can be
dealt with objectively only by the
national organization.

My Daddy got your CARE PACKAGE of farm tools and now we
grow OUR OWN food! Our village has a CARE Sewing Machine
to make our own clothes and even earn a small income! And I go
to school now* because Americans sent one-dollar CARE Kits! Please
help the other people too. We want to live and be free. You can
save us from ignorance and hunger, through CARE.
