f WEDNESDAY, MAKCTT 8,1050 California Professors Fight Special Non-CommunistOath BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KEWS PAGE EIGHT BERKELEY, Calif., March 8- </lO —Nine hundred University of Cal-' jfornla professors were lined up solidly today against taking a special non-Communist oath—even if It means their Jobs. • The group also was on record as against Communtste on the faculty and as willing to vouch for It in contractual letters. Holding Unit Hie special oath was discriminatory and a threat to academic freedom, the GOO voted unanimously last night against it. It has been ordered by the board of regents on it sign-or-quit fonsl.s by April 30 for all the university's 11,000, employes. M o s t of them, other than the faculty, already Have signed. The 900 acted as mem tiers of the Academic Senate, a self-governing body of the professors, representing the four campuses of the northern .section. The .senate for four campuses of the southern section Is scheduled to act today In Los Angeles. Sfamlnrd Oath Ashed The 900 voted belief that the standard loyalty oath taken by the President of the United States, the governor and all national and .state officials suffices for university faculties. The controversy was drawn nationwide cum men t from educators and one expression of support from an educator at Oxford. England. To strengthen their stand, the , 900 decided to submit their stand for a contractual letter as a substitute for the oath and their disavowal of communism to R vote tion against the faculty in rcla- northern senate members absent. There also are faculty members below professorship who do not belong to the senate. The resolution opposing the spc- ial oath called it a "discrimlna- pounds of meat but wouldn't label tion to other public servants -and fl. completely Ineffectual method of preventing the penetration of the Communist Party into the faculty." Gov. Warren's Stand That was in line with the expressed stand of Gov. Etirl Warren, one of six regents who voted against imposition ol the oath. (Twelve voted for it). Warren said any Communist would not hesitate to ,sign such an onth in order to be oh the faculty. • Last night's meeting was presided over by Dean Joel H. ilild- erurand, dean of chemistry whose department's contribution to science include plutonium. Testimony in Washington Congressional .hearings that there have been Communists in California's ' radiation laboratory 'during atomic research played a part in the drive of proponents for such measure as the special oath.

Truman Refused German Surrender Offer 73 Days Before War Ended, Aide Says in Book WASHINGTON, March 8. (Ap)_ President Truman refused a Gor-1 man surrender offer 13 days before World War II ended. In reporting this, Admiral William D. Leahy, presidential aide, said the offer was made through Helnrich Himmler. chief of the Nazi storm troops, to the United Stales and Britain. Himmler said he was willing to surrender all German troops on the western front, including those in Holland, Denmark and Norway, Leahy recalls. Mr. Truman turned him down In accord with American pledges to the Russians and the British that nothing but full surrender of all German forces to all the allies was acceptable. Leahy's report on the Incidents preceding the linal German surrender appears In his book, "I Was There," which is running serially in the Saturday Evening Post. He recalls that early In the afternoon of April 25, 1945 he was called quickly to the carefully yarded, highly secret communications room in the Pentagon. He found President Truman, Gen. George C. Marshall, and Admiral Ernest King there. They called Prime Minister Churchill, of Britain, on a direct wire Into No. 10 Downing Street, London. Aclcd for Ailing Hitler Churchill told them that through the American minister in Stockholm, H. V. Johnson, he had learned that Himmler had asked the late Count Bernadotte, of Sweden, to make a peace offer to Great Britain and the U.S. Cowboy Actor Dies HOLLYWOOD, March S. (/!>>— Cowboy actor -Jack Evans, 57. known as the Mayor of Gower Gulch, died yesterday. The veteran actor was a familiar figure in the vicinity of Sunset Boulevard and Gower Street, a section where film cowboys spend much of their time between pictures. Himmler said the German government was ready to surrender all troops on the Western front. Leahy writes: "Churchill reported that Himmler said he was speaking for the German government because of the Incapacity of Hitler, who had suffered a cerebral hcimnortwge, and was not expected to live for more than a few days. 'Truman told the prime minister that America could agree only to an unconditional surrender on all fronts in agreement with [lussla and Britain. Churchill said he was anxious to end the war. Truman said lie was too but that America had to stand by its commitments." As the men concluded their talk with Churchill, Leahy writes, they received a direct message from Johnson in Stockholm, confirming Churchill's Information. At the President's direction, Leahy messaged Generalissimo Stalin the details, suggesting that If the Germans would agree to unconditional surrender, they might surrender to allied commanders in the field. "Nothing came of this first surrender negotiation," Leahy comments. Stood Firm ' Mr. Truman stood !lrm on wartime agreements again when Churchill proposed soon after occupation of Germany that the occupation zones be rearranged. Leahy recalls that Churchill protested that most of the German food supplies were In the Soviet Zone. Truman objected that this fact had been known to all the three allies during the many months In which the allies had debated over zone boundaries. He messaged Churchill: "A demand by our governments for modification of agreed ione boundaries able food distribution might have or for an agreement on more eq serious consequences. The Russi could certainly consider such a bargaining position as a repudiation of our formal agreement."
