Investigators Hear Testimony
That Official Accepted Bribes

WASHINGTON (A3)-House in-
vestigators heard testimony yes-
terday that Richard A. Mack,
federal communications commis-
sioner, admittedly accepted several
thousands of dollars from a lawyer
active in getting a Miami televi-
sion license.
Atty. Gen. William Rogers
promptly ordered the FBI to
make a "complete investigation"
of the alleged payments to see if
federal law has.been violated.
Bernard Schwartz, ousted coun-
sel to the House Legislative Over-
sight subcommittee told the group
Mack has described the money as
loans-but has said some were
"forgiven" by the lawyer and has

"no specific recollection" of repay-
ing any of them.
Schwartz appeared as a sub-
poenaed witness before the com-
mittee which fired him last Mon-
day night.
He produced from the committee
files canceled checks totaling
$2,650 which he said were given to
Mack by Thurman A. Whiteside
after Mack became a member of
the license-granting commission.
Schwartz said Whiteside has a
reputation in Florida'as a "fixer"
and that he represented Public
Service Television Inc., a wholly
owned subsidiary of National Air-

At Miami, Whiteside comment-
ed: "Schwartz is a g-- d--- liar.
He is lying in his teeth.
"He is testifying contrary to the
information in his possession."
Whiteside said he had never
been a fixer and that he was never
employed as an attorney in the
television case. ,t
In the case, Public Service Tele-
vision, Inc., was granted Miami's
Channel 10 franchise by a 4-2 vote
of the FCC.
Mack was one of the four com-
missioners who gave Public Serv-
ice the nod over three other appli-
cants despite an FCC examiner's
report that Public Service was the
least qualified.

SGC President Joe Collins, '58, has said that SGC will offer

However, Joint Judic chairman Bob Stahl, '58, said he understood
SOC would first inform Joint Judic when it decided to offer evidence.
Joint Judic would then decide when to hold a hearing.
In its December bucket drive, Galens, a medical honorary, had

City Survey
Of Renewal
Partially-completed figures in
the housing survey of the Ann
Arbor urban renewal area so far
indicate that approximately 27 per
cent of the dwellings will be rec-
ommended for clearance, Wallace
W. Coburn of the city planning
department said yesterday.
These cearances are less than
originally estimated, he explained,
but the percentage is bound to go
up due to street extensions and
zoning for light industry.
"There are a few misconcep-
tions" among persons surveyed
who think this is a wholesale
clearance program, Coburn told
the Ann Arbor Citizen's Commit-
tee on Urban Renewal.
Get Reports
During committee discussion re-
ports were given that several resi-
dents in the urban renewal area
had held meetings and formed
petitions protesting the program.
One answer to the opposition,
members agreed, would be a pub-
lic relations program explaining
the details of urban renewal to
residents in the area.
Committee chairman Prof. A. Dr.
Moore of the electrical engineer-
ing department said he believed
that opposition was "at its peak
and will probably taper off."
Sociological Survey
Recommendations for the area
sociological survey, which was
planned as the main discussion
item for yesterday's committee
meeting, included the use of some
professional workers along with
volunteers from the community.
Committee members suggested
that every home in the area be
surveyed, contrary to the recom-
mendation of city planner Raye
C. Eastman that only the dwell-
ings which were slated for clear-
ance or major repairs be surveyed.
Reasoning supporting the com-
mittee recommendation was that
statistics would eventually be
needed on most of the dwellings.

Cross Tells
"Living with a select group is
for some people a great advantage
of the fraternity system, and this
principle of selectivity is what I
will defend," Assistant to the Dean
of Men in charge of fraternities
William G. Cross said last night in
a discussion of whether a man
should join a fraternity.
Cross differentiated between
selectivity and discrimination,
which Cross considered a "differ-
ent question, which he] would
prefer not to get into at this time."
But Cross did defend his views
on selectivity as "the human right
to choose.
"I choose what records I wish to
buy, what movies I want to see,
and I choose, in the same manner,
my friends."
Participating with Cross in this
discussion was John M. Hale, sen-
ior resident director of men's resi-
dence halls.
Both men agreed that it was a
student's responsibility to come to
an intelligent and well-informed
decision of whether he should live

in a fraternity, remain in the resi-
dence halls or live in independent
"Don't be afraid to depledge if
you feel that you've made a mis-
take,'" Cross told the audience.



Hunt Ways
To Fight
WASHINGTON ()-Democratic
leaders went to work yesterday on
two fronts to get action on means
to fight recession.
Democratic leaders in Congress
started work on a 10-point anti-
recession program and also plan-
ned to review the possibilities of
a tax cut this year.
Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas,
the party's chief in the Senate,
has asked the chairmen of six key
committees there to ' come up
quickly with legislative proposals
aimed at relaxing credit, multi-
plying public works projects and
generally creating more jobs.
Enlightened Action
In Augusta, Maine, eleven Dem-
ocratic governors told President
Dwight D. Eisenhower that /only
enlightened federal action can
prevent the recession from feed-
ing on itself and deteriorating fur-
ther into a depression."
House Speaker Sam Rayburn
(D-Tex.) disclosed the Democratic
senators' plan to have another
look at the tax structure in the
light of Tuesday's report that
almost 4% million Americans are
News Conference
Rayburn told a news conference
the Democratic leaders would re-
view the situation and see where
a tax cut, if there is one, will do
the most good, and determine
whether the budget will stand it.
They urged a six-point program
including public works, welfare
and educational expansion, fur-
thler easing of' credit and possibly
a tax cut Odirected to low-income
In Chattanooga, Tenn. the City
Relief Bureau yesterday passed out
surplus food to 176 families rep-
resenting 925 and said other dis-
tributions will pe held later.
"This is the second time in my
public career that I have seen food
distributed here at Warner Park,"
Mayor P. R. Olgiati said in a talk
to the waiting line of overcoated
men and women.
The food given to certified needy
families came from five boxcar-
loads Olgiati said.
People arrived carry large empty
bags and left lugging full ones.
Commodities were distributed ac-
cording to the number in each
family and were to last a month.

Undergraduate students inter-
ested in applying for the La Verne
Noyes scholarship for next semes-
ter should submit by Saturday ap-
plications to the scholarship of-
fice in the Student Activities Bldg.,
Dean of scholarships Ivan W.
Parker announced.
Application forms may be pick-
ed up at the scholarship office,
he said.

Odegaard Values
Humanistic Goals'

Will Fight

A professor of classics and a
professor of French literature at
Dartmouth College were important
factors in Dean of the Literary
College Charles E. Odegaard's de-
cision to enter academic life.
And he has stayed closely to the
humanistic tradition of education
ever since.
Following his tenure at Dart-
mouth, he. received his doctorate
in history at Harvard University,
and then went to the Universityj
of Illinois.
Change Gradual
The change over from teaching
to administration was a gradual
one. He began working with theI
Dean of the Graduate School at
Illinois on problems in the hu-
manistic disciplines. _
After a four-year hitch in the
Navy where he rose to the rank
of Lt. Commander and saw action
in both the Atlantic and Pacific,
he returned to Illinois.
This was followed in 1948 by his
appointment as director of the
American Council for Learned
Societies, the national organiza-
tion for humanistic research in
the United States.
Comes in 1952
In 1952 he came to the Uni-
versity to serve as Dean of the
Literary College, and in August he
will go on to an even bigger Job,
the presidency of the University
of Washington.
In the period after World War
II the humanities, the Dean said,

have lagged a great deal behind
the natural and social sciences in
the amount of money allocated for
their support.
Is this because the hugianities
are less valuable? Not according
to the dean. "A university," Dean
Odegaard explained, "is commit-
ted to the understanding of all
aspects of human experience."
To' accomplish this it must use
all the materials which are appro-
priate, he continued. Materials' of
the humanities are often those
through which men have expressed

Dearborn Center To Initiate
Year-Round Basis in 1959
The University's Dearborn Center will be put on a year-round
academic basis as of the 1959 school year, according to Harold M.
Dorr, Dean of Statewide Education.,
Principle reason for the decision is to allow students to hold jobs
under a cooperative plan. According to this program, students will
work half a year and attend school half a year.
The academic year will be divided into four quarters, with new
quarters beginning September, January, April and July. At the begin-
ning of the year, half the student'
body will attend classes, while theT m sters

President Hatcher Dedicates School of Nursing Unit

The new School of Nursing building was officially dedicated
by President Harlan Hatcher at 9 a.m. yesterday.
Begun in 1955, the building is the first unit of a $71/ million
Medical Science building, parts of which are still under construction.
It is one of the first nursing school buildings in the country to provide
distinctly separate facilities from the affiliated hospital.
Although a runway connects it with University Hospital, every
aspect of student training except working in the wards is provided
for within the confines of the school.
