Top Educators Attack Careless Appellation Of 'Red, Communist' By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Oct. 8.—The Edu cational Policies Commission of the National Education Associa tion today attacked “the careless application of such words as ‘red’ and ‘Communist.’” The 20 leading educators, in cluding Gen. Eisenhower, presi dent of Columbia University, and James B. Conant, president of Harvard University, also deplored the enactment of “special oaths for teachers.” They urged schools “to help resist exaggerated fears which tend to rise in periods of heightened tensions,” such as face us now because of “news of an atomic explosion in the Soviet Union.” In a statement following a meeting the commission recom mended: , “Citizens should condemn the careless application of such words as ‘Red’ and ‘Communist’ to teachers and other persons who merely have views different from those of their accusers. While the commission adheres to its previously stated position con cerning the non-employment of members of the Communist Party as teachers, it wishes also to em phasize again that citizens should be especially alert at this time to defend the essential needs of their schools for freedom of teaching and learning.” Apparently condemning the enactment of such laws as New York’s Peinberg law, the commis sion said: ‘‘State laws requiring special oaths for teachers, or laying down detailed prescriptions for the school curriculum, or establishing uniform tests and criteria of loy alty impair the vigor of local school autonomy and thus do harm to an important safeguard of freedom in education.” It recommended that schools | continue with vigor their pro grams for giving young citizens a clear understanding of the principles of the American way of life. _ Trade Board Renames Public Order Unit The Washington Board of Trade’s Public Order Committee has been renamed the ‘‘Public Protection Committee,” it was an nounced last night.

It was the second dismissal of a cabinet officer and his assistant in the last 24 hours.

Accused Killer Fails In Break from Jail With TWo Soap Guns By the Associated Press LOUISVILLE* Ky., Oct. 8.—Earl Bircham, accused killer of a po liceman and bank robber, flashed two guns made of a soap in a spectacular but unsuccessful effort to escape from the Jefferson County jail today. John Clifford, a guard, floored the 42-year-old former Tennes sean in a celiyiock corridor. Bircham had sawed his way out of his jail cell a short time before. Bircham, indicted here on a charge of murdering Patrolman John Tennyson and at Nashville, Tenn., on a charge of bank rob bery, was put back into a cell under lock and key, with a guard outside the bars. The prisoner is scheduled to go on trial here Tuesday on the mur der charge. He also is under in dictment here on a charge of assault and shooting with intent to kill. Police say Bircham also is wanted in Montgomery, Ala., on a charge of robbery and possibly in other States on similar charges. All the other cases will be held in abeyance pending outcome of the murder trial. Mr. Clifford said he first saw Bircham approaching him in the cellblock corridor. The prisoner i pulled two "guns” made of soap! and demanded the jail keys, Mr. ■ Clifford said. Bircham then switched off a corridor light. “Now gimme those keys or I’ll j blow your guts out," the guard quoted Bircham. “You’ll have to come and get ’em,” Mr. Clifford said he replied. The guard said he noticed a phony appearance about the guns and decided they were not the real thing. Mr. Clifford said he lunged at Bircham, the two grap pled a few moments and then he knocked the prisoner to the floor.
