American pties:
A stacked deck
THERE IS A TRICK in politics that involves extensive
use of both hands with each one doing a different
thing. The present administration seems quite adept at
this tactic, their most recent exhibition of skill occur-
ring in the Senate where Republican forces are seeking to
overturn the Gulf of Tonkin resolution. The resolution
was passed overwhelmingly in 1964 and was the vehicle
Lyndon Johnson used to justify massive U.S. intervention
in Vietnam.
This move is the activity of the right hand - making
a dovish gesture to appease the anti-war senators and
Americans. But the left hand holds all the trump cards.
It is the bellicose hand that is dealing so energetically in
the same Indochina the Tonkin resolution speaks of.
This latest Nixon move smacks too much of shoddy
politics to be ignored. How ignorant, how blind, how ob-
tuse does the President think the country is to be taken
in by his grandiose claims to disassociate the U.S. from
Indochina with one hand while escalating the struggle
with the other?
SEN. ROBERT DOLE (R-Kan.), sponsor of the amend-
ment to repeal the resolution, admitted Monday that
the move was a White House effort to 'seize the initative
in debate on Nixon policy in Indochina.
The President has said he doesn't need the resolu-
tion to legitimize his actions there. And he is apparently
correct, for he based his commitment of troops to Cam-
bodia on something quite different than a resolution,
something more difficult to attack than a piece of paper
filled with diplomatic jargon.
The Cambodian effort, Nixon explained, was neces-
sary to save American lives in Vietnam which he said
were imperiled because of North Vietnamese and Viet
Cong border sanctuaries in Cambodia. How can one prove
the veracity of this claim? How does one know for sure
whether the President and all of his advisers are Cor-
rect? How can one openly show disregard for the loss
of American lives?
G IVEN ALL THIS, why must Nixon even go through the
motions he and a large part of the country ought to
know are meaningless? The answer, one must admit, is
really quite simple but nevertheless disgruntling. It is
the politically suave thing to do because there just might
be enough Americans out there who think the President
is doing something constructive for peace and who will
subsequently answer the Gallup or Harris poll affirma-
tively when asked "Do you think the President is actively
working for peace?"
And this will only reaffirm the President's belief that
what he is doing is right. And he will continue.
-But somehow underneath the feeling, persists that
what he is doing is not right and that all of these osten-
sibly benign gestures are not that at all.
If enough people get wind of the game, maybe some
day the right hand will deal out the left.
NADINE COHODAS
With a grain -of SALT
THE NEW YORK TIMES reported last week that U.S.
negotiators at the strategic arms limitations talks in
Vienna are insisting that, at a minimum, the U.S. be al-
lowed to maintain one missile defense site - to defend
Washington.
Responsiveness of the government to the needs of the
people being what it is, perhaps such an agreement would
lessen the Nixon administration's surprising reluctance to
initiate the ultimate expansion of the war in Indochina.
But what about San Clemente and Key Biscayne?

FOR MANY months many Amer-
icans were tranquilized by the
plea that President Nixon be
"given a chance" to carry out his
proclaimed objective of with-
drawal from Vietnam. Then came
Cambodia and, despite the tor-
tured insistence that this was the
swiftest route home for our troops,
there is a continuing explosion on
Capitol Hill and on the campuses.
And now the last line of defense
for expansion of the war has be-
come a renewal of the cry that dis-
sent is a disservice to our em-
battled young men in the front
lines. Nixon set the tone in the
saccharine peroration of his last
TV performance; he appealed for
support not for the President
(banish so unworthy a thought)
but "for our brave fighting men
fighting tonight half-way around
the world . . ." On the next day
he journeyed to the Pentagon and
there7angrily contrasted the valor
of the GIs with the "bums" in-
festing campus sanctuaries, a re-
mark that may long haunt him
despite all of yesterday's belated
clarifications.
It is time this desperate dem-
agogy was finally laid to rest. For
five long years opponents of the-
war have been accused of betray-.
ing the men in uniform. But who
has really let them down-those
who have been calling for an end
to this tragic adventure or those

who have led us from one entrap-
ment heralding that elusive light
in the tunnel?
Do -these youths now facing
death in Cambodia have quarrel'
with those condemning the ex-
pedition-or with those who reck-
lessly plunged them into it?f
THERE ARE NO opinions-polls
conducted at the front, and the
41,610 Americans who have died-
up till last week-will never be
heard from. But dispatches from
Associated Press correspondent
Peter Arnett, who went into Cam-
bodia' with the first detachments,
recorded angry, almost mutinous
language among enlisted men;' a
CBS news-report last night re-
vealed a mood of cynicism and
frustration over the sudden shift
of locale.
Over the telephone from Madi-
son, Wis., Morris Rubin, editor of
The Progressive magazine, report-
ed a conversation he had yester-
day morning with a Vietnam vet-
eran who had journeyed from his
family's farm in the town of Black
Earth-about 20 miles away. The
youth had come into the city to
watch the turbulent anti-war
demonstration t h e r e; he was
neither participant nor adversary.
But when Rubin asked him what
the reaction of men at the front
ha been to earlier anti-war pro-
tests, he replied:
"Nobody I ever met out there

had any-use for this war-they
were for anything that might help
to get us away from it:"
THIS WAS JUST one voice from
the "breadland" of America; but
little in the literature of the war
suggest any clearly contrary view.
Sadly, Vietnam is being remem-
bered most not for individual acts
of heroism-of which there no
doubt have been many-but for
chronicles depicting the rage and
brutalization of frustrated troops
lacking any deep sense of mission.
Now all that is certain is that
the casualty list will rise again.
We are being told these deaths are
necessary to avert larger losses in
the .future. Is it a disloyalty to
those in the battle zones to con-
tend anew that a negotiated peace
-based on the emergence of a
coalition government in Saigon-
ofers the only true insurance
against large escalation of battle-
field death? Would many GIs vote
for cotne combat if they were
bluntly told that they were fight-
ing to save the Thieu regime?
There will be no larger type for
the names of those doomed to
death in Cambodia than for those
who have perished in Vietnam; as
before, each one will signify heart-
break and horror for another
American home.

'Adalen': Very successful

By DONALD KUBIT
ADALEN 31 is valid proof that
Bo Widerberg is one of the most
formidable writers and directors
in the movie business. After the
amazing success and critical ap-
praisal of Elvira Madigan, many
waited in excited anticipation to
see if Mr. Widerberg's talent was
a one shot fluke, or if, in fact, he
deserved the accolades bestowed
upon him. Now that his second
film is out, he has proven beyond
a doubt that he is truly a great
film-maker.
Adalen 31, now "showing at the
Campus Theatre, is as equally
beautiful and captivating as El-
vira Madigan. However, it g o e s
one step further than its prede-
cessor in that deals with social
problems with the same honest
insight a simple love story receiv-
ed in Elvira Madigan. , -
In 1931 there was a worker's
strike in Adalen, Sweden. Violence
perpetrated by the owner's action
to break the strike led to the trag-
ic death of five people. The film
is dedicated to these five.
Widerberg portrays the workers'
plight, their fight against hunger,
their devotion to principle, and
their impatience when their de-
mands go unheard and the busi-
nessmen first bringing in scabs
and then the military to protect
the scabs.
Although the movie is based on
history, Widerberg is not content
with a simple rehashing of factual
material. He delves into these
people's lives, concentrating the
action on a human level, exposing
the h o p e s and frustrations of
these people as human beings, and
not merely as recipients of a his-
torical event.
Besides, the main story of the
strike there are underlying plots
including a love story between the
son of one of the workers and the
daughter of one of the owners,
and a close-up of one of the strik-
ing families.
Letters to the Editor should
be mailed to the Editorial Di-
rector or delivered to Mary
Rafferty in the Student Pub-
lications business office n The
Michigan Daily building. Let-
ters should be typed, double-
spaced and normally should not
exceed 250 words. The Editorial
Directors reserve the right to
edit all letters submitted.

Widerberg has not lost his in-
trinsic ability to display the inno-
cence of youth in love and like
the moving impact of Elvira Mad-
igan, the love story in Adalen 31 is
as touching and as cataclysmic.
No one can cast actors better
than Widerberg and his choice of
characters in this film is perfect.
All of the actors live their roles
with a believability that goes un-
questioned. The young lovers are
as beautiful as we all expect our
first love affairs to be, and there
is a little kid in the movie who
will simply win your heart. The
impression he makes is so great
that you expect him to walk out
of the screen when the movie is
over.
Because I see so many films, I
am often not able to ponder them
as much as I would like to, but
Adalen 31 is a movie that forces
you to think about it. It conjures
up visions of past pretenses and
the shocking reality of life as it
is today. You remember the sense-
less killings at Kent State, the
intimacy of a family, the idealism
of inexperienced youth, and the

final message of the film that af-
ter a general s t r i k e in Adalen
"equality has never been achiev-_
ed" leaves you with the impres-
sion that Mr. Widerberg knows
how to fake a case against the
injustices of the world.
Some people may stay a w a y
from this film because they feel
that subtitles are distracting, but
this technique, in no way, hamp-
ers the movement nor the mes-
sage of this film.
There will be a lot of movies in
town this summer, but it is my be-
lief that Adalen 31 will be one of
the best films you'll see all year.
It won the Cannes Film Festival
Award and you can be sure its
accomplishments won't stop there.
See it, your friends will be talking
about it for a long time.
