impression which the allied nations do
not wish to give. "So," he said, "you
have a deadlock - with the makings
of a war."
According to Professor Sellars, the
chief hope for peace at present is the
ability of the allied compacts to keep
Germany down. "But," he added,
"this is not the best peace. Instead
it is based on the theory that might
makes right. It makes for a state
of diplomatic war."
Has Not Reached Goal
Speaking of Communism as a social
goal, Professor Sellars stated that
while Communism is the ideal of the
Soviet State, "It is not as yet realized,
and circumstances may even be forc-
ing Russia away from it. Events alone
will tell the story.
"There has been too much doctrin-
aire Marxism," he added.
Professor Sellars termed President
Roosevelt's social security program
"merely a beginning," pointing out
"how completely Americans have ig-
nored" social problems. "We went
wild in pursuit of external things,"
he said. "It is only recently that we
have at all opened our eyes to the
vital questions that confront us."
Predicts Social Reform
Professor Sellars hoped that "if
the President is able to bring back
prosperity, we will continue to pro-
gress along the lines of social re-
form." Stating that most European
countries are years ahead of the
United States in social legislation, he
pointed out that Great Britain's un-
employment insurance "acted as a
cushion" for the depression in that
The University's political philos-
ophy expert also expressed the hope
that "America will become really
socially conscious and solve her prob-
lems in a rational, intelligent man-
ner." He predicted, however, that
"an uncertain and zig-zag path will
probably be followed, because the
situation is so novel here. Our past
of pioneer individualism," he contin-
ued, "will have a direct bearing on
the route taken." He cited as possible
course of action "a swing to semi-
Fascism, followed by a reaction to a
saner position."
Shift From Individualism
The shift in political philosophy,
both in the United States and in the
world at large, Professor Sellars ob-
served, is away from the older indi-
vidualism to a "social realism, domin-
ated by the idea of the good of the
community at large."
Nationalism has been a "vicious
factor" in contemporary political phi-
losophy, he said, and declared that
nationalism makes for "international
anarchy. Industrial capitalism," he
pointed out, "has been linked with
nationalism and 'imperialism."
He mentioned Japan as a "preco-
cious disciple" of the West in its mili-
tarism and extreme nationalism.
"A rational solution of our politi-
cal problems is always far more de-
sireable than revolution," he declared
in conclusion, "but that demands edu-
cation, reflection, tolerance, and
open-mindedness. The question be-
fore America today is, shall we en-
courage these necessary conditions of
social advance?"

Faculty Me n
Are Named On
County Board
Donal H. Haines of the journalism
department and Prof. George L. Jack-
son of the School of Education were
elected recently to the board of direc-
tors of the Washtenaw County Con-
servation Association as representa-
tives of Ann Arbor.
The board of the newly formed so-
ciety is composed of 12 representative
sportsmen from all parts of the coun-
ty. The communities of Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti have two members
each on the board, Saline, Dexter,
Manchester, Milan and Chelsea one
each. Two of the boardmembers are
selected from among the farm land-
owners of the county, and one posi-
tion, for the village of Whitmore Lake,
has not yet been filled.
Both Mr. Haines, who has been in-
strumental in the founding and or-
ganization of the society, and Prof.
Jackson have strongly sponsored the
movement locally. The Association
was formed on the lines of the Jack-
son county organization of a similar
character which has conducted a very
successful program. The aims of the
society which have been expressed in
a six-point program consist of active
participation in game management,
restocking of county lakes and
streams, establishment when practical
of rearing ponds, cooperation with the
Federal government and the Jackson
County Conservation League in de-
veloping the Waterloo project, and
highway beautification and refores-
tation. Officers of the society will be
elected at a meeting of the board
of directors to be held next week.
