Swadesh Blames Witch
Hunt for His Dismissal
By PHYLLIS COHEN
"My dismissal from the staff of
New York's City College is just
part of the general witch hunt,
going on throughout the nation."
This is the opinion of Morris
Swadesh former professor of so-
ciology and anthropology at the
College of the City of New York.

Four German broadcasters will
visit the University today and to-
morrow as part of a special train-
ing program in American radio.
Their visit is a part of a two-
month project administered by
Columbia University's Bureau of
Applied Social Research. The pro-
gram is designed to give the broad-
casters a first-hang view of Amer-
ican radio and Aerican life and

over stations WUOM FM and

mer as a visiting professor in the
Department of Speech. He is di-

my friends at the Linguistic In-
stitute" before leaving for Van-
couver Island. He has received a
grant-in-aid by the Social Science
Research Council to study the
Nootka Indians on that island.
The anthropologist and lin-
guist, author of many scientific
books, has recently been refused
reappointment to City College's
staff. He has been accused of
having "a basic misconception
of his function as a social scien-
tist and his responsibilities as a
teacher and a member of the
department," according to the
anthropology department at that
"The administration, in deny-
ing my reappointment had only
one real motive, the fact that I
disapproved the flagrant racist
policies at the school and was un-
equivocally opposed to reprisals
against students," Swadesh said.
* * * -
HE DENIED THAT he had ap-
proved the recent strike at up-
town City College where students
petitioned for the removal of Pro-
fessor William E. Knickerbocker
and William C. Davis, of that
school. Both of these men had
been accused by the student body
of discriminatory practices.
"Actually all I did was as-
sure the students that we teach-
ers feel that there is no reason
or basis to penalize any of our
pupils for participation in that
strike," Swadish said.
"Anti-Negro and anti-Jewish
discrimination is made possible at
City College only by means of
ruthless reprisals against any in
the student body ar the faculty
who dares to criticize," he noted.
SWADESH HAS also been ac-
cused of "improper use of class
time for the organization of a
protest to the governor of Ohio
concerning the dismissal of an
archaologist and museum employe
of that state."
"Every teacher is at some time
forced to discuss things outside
the classroom lecture," Swadesh
said. The former professor claims
the report that he had formed a
committee of students to agitate
for re-instatement of the archeo-
logist in class time as "full of half
truhs" and "very disored."
A broadcast of the National Mu-
sic Camp choir and string orches-
tra, taken from a recording made.
at Interlochen, will be featured by
WUOM at 6 p.m. today.
The 7 p.m. classical concert will
offer Bach's Brandenburg Con-
certo No. 6, as well as the Concerto
in B minor by Dvorak.
