Staff Writer 'Security' Dismissals Reviewed WASHINGTON From 130 "security" dismissals or forced resignations in 1953, four were found to be "disloyal persons," the Treasury Department informed Congress. The information was given to the House Appropriations Committee and published by Libert Tuttle, acting security officer for the department. In a report on the Customs Service, which employs 8,000, it was disclosed that six persons were dismissed last year as security risks. All six seemed to have "contact with Communists," customs commissioner David Strubinger said.

In his letter of acceptance, Kemper stated, "I am grateful for this opportunity to tell a story which so far has been de nied a hearing by the Nebraska Board of Regents." THE PUBLISHER has hurled several charges concerning the athletic situation at the univer sity. He claims that: Scholarship agreements with athletes are just as much an obligation to the University as Glassford's contract. The Omaha World Herald was shown preference in the distri bution of free press tickets to the stadium. Regents failed to give 44 foot ball players a proper hearing after they obtained a petition against retaining Coach Bill Glassford. Football net profits of $200, 000 annually show that there is no need for a "slush" fund of $29,100 raised by alumni and friends. " Assistant coaches who left school were not questioned dur ing the Glassford issue. Novacain was improperly ad ministered to get injured play ers back into the game. DR. SAMUEL I. Fuuenning, director of Student Health, an swered the last charge by sub mitting a statement of the policy of administering novacain to in jured football players, at a re cent meeting of the Board of Re gents. In his policy statement, Dr. Fuuenning asserted that if un authorized use of novacain oc curred it happened more than two years ago. He said that a former trainer, who is not asso ciated with the University now, may have used novacain. Kemper said in his letter that the regents can send a stenog rapher to the Feb. 27 meeting with complete confidence that what he has to say was origin ally intended for their ears.
