Rita Hayworth and Prince Aly
Khan who were married in civil

question. Yesterday Rita and Aly
were lalKing aoout naving me
Moslem rites in Paris.
Si Kaddour Ben Ghabrit, head
of the Moslem church in France,
said in Paris:
"A Moslem marriage is a very
simple ceremony. It only means
that the husband must declare
the amount of dowry he is giving
his wife. Then the marriage is
registered in the Moslem rec
ords." The newlyweds were In seclu
sion today at their luxurious Cha
teau de L'Horizon.
Gone were the gay, beautifully
dressed guests who yesterday
toasted their wedding In cham
pagne (the Prince provided 15
bottles per guest), strolled around
the scented swimming pool and
tasted caviar and other delica
cies. Intimate friends of the couple

Dr. James Monroe Smith, 60,

Louisiana scandals, died at his

Death came from a heart at

the state penitentiary here after
an evening walk.
At the time of his death he was
director of vocational rehabili

served six years for participation
in the scandals.
It was Smith's resignation as
president of the University that
touched off prosecution in the
scandals in 1939. In subsequent
developments he, former Gov.
Richard Leche and a number of
others were sent to prison.
Smith was convicted In state
courts of obtaining nearly a half

Congress To Stay

Despite Mr. Truman's state

or more of his proposals deserves
priority rating, there were signs
that he may have to be satisfied
with final action on a half dozen.
And Senator Taft (R.-Ohio)
predicted that one of these

Besides action on the labor
measure, congressional leaders
are pushing for a House vote on
Senate-passed long-range housing
and school aid bills.
Because of the illness of Sena
tor George (D.-Ga.), the Senate
probably will delay action on the
House-approved reciprocal trade
measure until it disposes of the
labor bill. The North Atlantic
Security treaty also remains to
be acted upon.
Neither House yet has taken a
crack at the president's proposal
to boost the minimum wage
level, but leaders say they want
action on it.

CORVALLIS, May 28. (Jpu
Two ousted professors protested
again Thursday, and in turn un
derwent some severe questioning
from a student audience.
The two, Dr. Ralph Spltzer,
associate professor of chemistry,
and L. R. La Vallee, assistant
professor of economics at Oregon
State College, asserted academic
freedom was endangered.
Spitzer urged the audience of
300, mostly students, to "refuse
to allow campuses to become rub
ber stamps of orthodoxy." He
added that Dr. A. L. Strand,
president of O. S. C, was a vic
tim of the cold war.
The meeting was called by the
Young Progressives organization.
Strand sat through the hour-long
session without taking part. Later
"The fact that the college pro
vided a hall for them to attack
me and the Institution and paid
the cost of the set-up and the
loud speaker should be good evi
dence that no one is being denied
academic freedom on this cam
pus." In a question period following
the main speech, a student asked
Spitzer whether he was a mem
ber of the Communist party.
Spitzer refused to say. He declar
ed that no one has the right to
question a man's political or
religious beliefs. A man should
be judged on his actions and not
on the basis of membership in
any organization, he said.
La Vnllee denounced what he
said was the control of education
by big business. He cited the
number of businessmen on lead
ing college trustee boards.
Both refused to discuss quA
tions about academic freedom irr
They said their information was
too scanty, and that It had no
bearing on the desirability ot
academic freedom in this country.
The services of both will end
June 11. The two, on yearly
tenure, were notified last Febiu
ary that they would not be rehired.
