Censorship, Segregation

Exams Loom Near
Regret over the hours spent at beaches, picnic grounds and
just plain "being social" will strike suddenly at many summer ses-
sion students this week, as the examination period looms near.
Examinations on Thursday and Friday will draw the Summer
Session to a close after eight weeks. Students will swarm from
Ann Arbor late Friday for a month vacation before classes resume
Sept. 24.
The examination schedule for the colleges and schools on the
eight-week basis are as follows:

The summer editor of the Ok-
lahoma Daily, University of Okla-
homa student newspaper, has been
fired after writing a page one

The Daily, under Editor Larryf
Kaufman had printed editorials
and news stories attacking actionst
of the Board of Regents banning
cars for freshmen and parking on
the campus, forbidding freshmen
co-eds from riding in cars withi
upperclassmen, charging studentsI
for home football games, and plan-I

AFTER HIS dismissal, Kauf-
man declared that "it is incon-
gruent with the purposes of a uni-
versity that the administration
should censor in any way, shape
or form, the student publications."
In the editorial that provoked
his firing, the ousted student
editor said this directive had
been Lent by President Cross tot

"The paper must at all times bei
available as a means of makingc
announcements which are import-I
ant to students. I think that such1
-announcements should be accept-
ed by the editor of the paper with-c
out question and should be print-
ed prominently on the first page,I
preferably in a box.
"The paper should refrain im-
mediately from making deroga-
tory remarks concerning the re-I
gents of the university.c
"I suggest that the paper dis-f
continue the policy of making its

pages available for statements
and opinions from those not as-
sociated with the university.
"Student letters, however criti-
cal of the university administra-
tion, should be printed freely.
However, letters of a critical na-
ture should be referred to the of-
fice of public relations to be
checked as to fact before the let-
ter is published."

volved in a legal battle to keep out
its first Negro applicant, a col-
lege professor named Horace
Ward who owns two degrees.
When Ward applied for ad-
mission to the university's law
school several months ago, the
registrar immediately dropped
the hot-potato application into
the laps of the regents, who did-
n't let the shock of the matter
interfere with an i n s t a n t
thumbs-down decision. The state
constitution does not allow mix-
ed education.
Undaunted, Ward has indicated
that he intends to keep trying-
this time through a suit in a Uni-
ted States district court-until he
is admitted. By the time school
opens this fall, Ward hopes to
have a court ruling to back him
According to the' carefully-
drawn state appropriations bill,
admittance of a Negro to any
branch of the University of Geor-
gia would result in cancellation of
all state funds for that branch.
But if the courts found that
provision of the budget act illegal
or discriminatory, appropriations
for all sixteen schools in the uni-
versity system would be cut off.

The University has shown a
definite interest in television, as
witnessed by additions to the
Speech Dept. curriculum, the Uni-
versity's Television Hour on
WWJ-TV last year, and numerous
student TV productions.
Further evidence of the empha-
sis on the newest of our enter-
tainment mediums will be shown
from 3 to 5 p.m. tomorrow when
TV and debate students join forc-
es to produce a mock court trial
for TV broadcasting.

A MEDICAL student from the
University showed his stuff on
NBC's "Break the Bank" last week
and came away with $500 to fi-
nance his senior year. The stu-
dent, Melvin Broday, '52M, was
paired with a young Mexican girl
in the quiz category "Famous
People from Michigan" and they
hit the jackpot. We rather sus-
pect that Broday did most of the
answering, but he split the $1000
prize with his partner.
As we predicted last week,
NBC has found itself in a jam
because of its rescheduling of
Dave Garroway's pleasant half-
hour. Forced to leave its Sun-
day night spot by the forthcom-
ing debut of Red Skelton, the
Chicago-originated show was
tentatively set for Wednesdays
at 9:30 p.m.
Now the sponsor for next year
has backed out because only 11
stations on the NBC-TV web nave
the WednEsday night spot avail-
able. It does not appear that any
other company will rush to throw
their cash at NBC's feet if they
are given an outlet of only 11
stations cut of the 50 that make
ap the network.
Seemingly television viewers
will lose what is probably the
most unpretensious, casual, and
yet immensely enjoyable show
that has graced a TV sound stage.
