He was on the medical committee of the board at the time Dean John Spies was hired. He stated that the charge against Rainey because of Spics could be made only because Rainy was too loyal to a man who was behind the eight-ball even at the time he was hired, and never had a chance to prove himself. “I am sure that four or five years ago political plans were already afoot to have a hoard appointed who were definitely against liberal education, and that O'Daniei and Stevenson, perhaps unconsciously, fulfilled the plans,” he declared. He stated that a move which would have precipitated the action much earlier was a resolution passed bv Regent Strickland in the spring of 1943 in an attempt to revoke the procedural clause in the tenure rule—w'hich clause is that no teacher above the rank of an associate professor may be discharged without a trial. This action wras averted only by a resolution of the ex-students association in April of the same year.
