    KERMIT EBY, U. OF C. PROF, IS DEAD AT 58
    Social Scientist Was Union Aid
    Kermit Eby, 58, University of Chicago professor and former official of the Chicago Teachers union and the CIO, died yesterday in Billings hospital.
    Prof. Eby, who lived at 7700 Euclid av., had been a patient at the hospital since January. After he entered the hospital he raised considerable money for it by requesting friends, who asked if they could send him flowers, candy, or help him in some way, to donate to the hospital for cancer research.
    Born in Indiana
    Prof. Ely, who once described himself as descendant from a line of Mennonite Brethren in northern Indiana, was born in St. Joseph county, Ind. He was graduated from Wakarusa High school and later from Manchester college, North Manchester, Ind.
    He was a school teacher and principal in Indiana and Michigan, and was ordained a minister of the Brethren church in 1927. He spent five months in the Orient with a Friends "good will mission" in 1933.
    Mr. Eby was executive secretary of the Chicago Teachers union from 1937 until 1942, when he was ousted by Ira S. Turley, then president of the union. He joined the Congress of Industrial Organization in 1942 as assistant director of education and later became the CIO's director of education and research.
    Foe of Reds
    With the CIO, Mr. Eby gained the experience and knowledge that made him an expert on communist infiltration of labor unions. In 1953, after an appearance at a closed session of the United States Senate's internal security subcommittee, he issued a public statement that he was not and never had been a Communist party member, never had been solicited for membership, and never knowingly offered his services to Communists.
    After he left his job with the Chicago Teachers union, Mr. Eby continued agitation that eventually led to the expulsion of Schools Supt. William H. Johnson from the National Education association and later to his dismissal as schools superintendent here.
    Mr. Eby left the CIO to become associate professor of social sciences at the university in 1948. He was made a full professor in 1952. He was the author of many books on social science and religion.
    Surviving are his widow, Rethe; two sons, Kermit Jr. and Daniel; a daughter, Mrs. Sylvia Anne Baird, and four grandchildren. Services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday in the Baugo chapel at Wakrusa, Ind.
