While There Are
Fascist Nations ...
N YESTERDAY'S EDITORIAL,
we said: "It is certain that so
long as there are fascist nations, there can never
be peace." In view of the fact that a number
of recent correspondents have written approv-
ingly of fascist ideology, we should like to dem-
onstrate that this ideology is divergent from fas-.
cism in practice and serves but to conceal the
truth of the quoted statement.
What are the underlying assumptions of fas-
cist philosophy? First: national solidarity, unan-
imity. Writes Walter Lippmann in the January
Atlantic: "Fascists make the assumption, never
wholly explicit or completely stated, that there
ist only a marginal willfulness in human behav-
ior; that the great mass of mankind is naturally
docile; that, by exterminating the minority and
drilling the mass, significant dissent will dis@-
pear. Hence the claim of the fascist states to
an absolute monopoly of all agencies of edua-
tion, intelligence, and culture, for without such
a monopoly they could not protect the mass,
whom they propose to discipline into unanimity,
from the contagion of individual contrariety."
Second: the idea of a leader-class, inherited
from Carlyle and Nietschze. -The assumption isj
that out of the people there will arise "brilliant,
adventurous, and supremely intelligent leaders."
The validity of the first assumption is by con-
cession perhaps debatable, but the incompatibil-
ity- of the first and the second assumptions is
"The truth is there is no formula anywhere
ini the fascist doctrine which even suggests how
its social ideal could be realized," says Mr. Lipp-
mann. "It seeks two inherently incompatible re-
sults: great leaders and a conforming nation. If
it devotes itself to promoting conformity, it will
not produce leaders It will produce routineers,
bureaucrats, and courtiers. If it devotes itself
to producing leaders, it will destroy the conform-
ity of the mass. If it established an hereditary
ruling caste, it might produce enterprising lead-
ers and docile subjects. But it would then have
returned to a class division in society which is,
irreconcilable with its ideal of unanimity and na-
The real nature of fascism is to be found rather
in the economic and to some extent the political
lacks of the fascist states. "Both Italy and
Germany are peculiarly dependent upon the
outer world for necessary materials. They were
unable to buy what they needed in sufficient
quantity by the sale of their exports. In both
countries there was a diminishing national in-
come and a class struggle to share it . .. " The
result is that the leaders of Italy and Germany
are preparing to win by force what they require:
economic resources and prestige at the interna-
tional round table. The present resources are
hingr nea + tthat end. the nerseution of
scription of capital and labor," according to
Lippmann. "So it is idle to ask whether men like
Mussolini or Hitler mean war or whether their
protestations of peace are anything but ruses
de guerre. Fascism. is nothing less, and prob-
ably nothing more, than the latest and complet-
est development of the nation in arms. It is
militarism without qualification preparing for a
UAW's Big Hope
Shall It Be Sole Bargaining Agent?E
The Daily believes that the foliow:ng excerpt from
a statement issued Jan. 16 by Homer Martin, pres-
ident of the United Automobile Workers, better
than anything we have read so far reveals the es-
sence of the current auto labor dispute as organized
labor views it.
"THE UNION CONSIDERS this response (in-
creases in membership) to be a definite vote
of confidence and support for our major de-
mands upon General Motors, which is recogni-
tion of the International Union, United Automo-
bile Workers of America, as the sole collective
bargaining agency for General Motors employes.
Contrary to some misleading stories which
have appeared, based on a misunderstanding of
the subects of discussion in the Lansing confer-
ence, the union has at no time receded from its
stand on this all-important point.
Representing a majority, which is daily and al-
most hourly increasing, of the employes, we claim
this right, not only by law and justice, but as a
prerequisite of establishing regular, peaceful and
efficient labor relations with the corporation.
Long and sad experience of the automobile
Workers with the Automobile Labor Board and
with other attempts to play off company unions
against genuine labor organizations, but stressed
by labor's experience in nearly every other in-
dustry, have convinced us that this policy can
result only in confusion, disruption and indus-
It is impossible to have more than one collec-
tive bargaining agency determining the wages
and working conditions of employees in the same
group. One part of an assembly line cannot be
on a six-hour day while an adjoining part of the
line, or a scattering of workers along the line, is
on an eight-hour day; the only means of having
order in collective bargaining is to have a single
agency representing the employees in the de-
termination of wages and working conditions.
Wages and hours for adjoining workers on sim-
ilar jobs cannot be established by different agree-
ments; there is no feasible method of collective
bargaining other than through unified represen-
tation. That being true, to say the corporation
will not recognize any union as the "sole collec-
tive bargaining agency" is in fact to say "we
refuse to bargain with our employees collec-

King James On Smoking
To the Editor:
The inevitable "bull sessions" arising out of the
discussion of the "woman smoker" recently ap-
pearing in The Daily columns bring to mind the
bitter invective turned against tobacco by that
stern moralist King James I. In a "Counterblast
Against Tobacco" he stormed:
"Many in this kingdom have had such a con-
tinual use of taking this unsavory smoke, as now
they are not able to forbear the same, no more
than a long drunkard can be long sober ,without
falling into an uncurable weakness . . . It is, as
you use, or rather abuse it ,a branch of the sin
of drunkenness, which is the root of all sins: for
as the only delight that drunkards take in wine
is in the strength of the taste, and the force of
the same thereof that mounts up to the brain;
for no drunkards love any weak or sweet drink;
so are not those (I mean the strong heat and the
fume) the only qualities that make tobacco so
delectable to all the lovers of it?
"And for the vanities committed in this filthy
custom, is it not both great vanity and unclean-
liness, that at the table, a place of respect, of
of cleanliness of ,modesty, men should not be
ashamed to sit tossing of tobacco pipes, and
puffing of the smoke of tobacco making the
filthy smoke and stink thereof to exhale athwart
the dishes and infect the air, when very often
men that abhor it are at-their repast?
"Surely smoke becomes a kitchen far better
than a dining chamber, and yet it makes a
kitchen also oftentimes in the inward parts of
men, soiling and infecting them with an unctious
and oily kind of soot, as hath been found in some
great tobacco takers that after their death were
opened . . . The public use whereof at all times
and in all places hath now so far prevailed as
that divers men, very sound both in judgment
and complexion, have been at last forced to take
it also without desire, partly because they were
ashamed to seem singular. . . and partly to be as
one that was content to eat garlic (which he did
not love) that he might not be troubled with the
smell of it in the breath of his fellows.
"And is it not great vanity that a man cannot
heartily welcome his friend now, but straight
they must be in hand with tobacco? Now it is
become in place of a cure, a point of good fellow-
ship, and he that will refuse to take a pipe of
tobacco among his fellows (though for his own
election he would rather feel the savor of a sink)
is accounted peevish and no good company, even
as they do with tippling in the cold Eastern
countries. Yea, the mistress cannot in a more
mannerly kind entertain her servant than by
giving him out of her fair hand a pipe of to-
bacco . . . It is a custom loathsome to the eye,
hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dan-
gerous to the lungs, and in the black, stinking
fume thereof. nearest resembling the horrible
**** IT ALL
4b - -By Bonth Williams
TEAR GAS is pretty stuff to inhale I found
out yesterday when a couple of police squads
tried to break up the picket lines which workers
threw up around the Meldrum Ave. plant of the
Briggs Manufacturing'Co. just before the day
shift came on.
A couple of good natured picketeers were ex-
plaining to me why they were refusing to let
anyone enter the plant.
"They layed off three hunnert and fifty last
week for joinin' the Union, and we're gonna
see that nobody works around here till they get
their jobs back."
Just then the cops started in to work. Night
sticks, tear gas, and another evil smelling, stom-
ache curdling vaporous stuff was brought into
play and the smell more than anything else
disorganized the pickets momentarily.
The stench of that gas is something which is
rapt even pleasant to recall. It makes you feel
choked up and sick and then very sick. I didn't
get away quite quick enough.
The picket lines quickly reformed, however,
before any of the bewildered workmen on the
day shift could enter the plant and from then
on maintained their posts and effectively stopped
production all day.
There is some kind of newspaper motto that
says in effect that the good reporter gets his
nose into everything. They could have known
very little about tear gas in those days.
WAGGING a very cold thumb at any num-
ber of unconcerned motorists, I made the
return trip to Ann Arbor in a series of five
stages. First a Swedish gentleman in overalls
conveyed me about five blocks, where he said
that he thought I said "Ashland" instead of
"Ann Arbor" and explained he always like to
help poor people.
Ride number two was with a couple of Jokers
who were going "way out." I got almost a mile
this time before they turned off and once again
took my stand with cocked thumb and alert eye.
The next benevolent soul was a suave little fellow
with a heater and I hoped he was going all the
way. He was-all the way to Telegraph Road.
However, the ride was not without its edu-
cational value, for in that three mile space, I
learned how tough it is to work for the city
in the marketing department and have now defi-
nitely turned my back on that field as a profes-
A 1926 coffee grinder operated by a morose
looking gentleman in a hunting cap was stage
number four of my journey. From him I learned
that a sailor's life is getting tougher every year
and that the steamship companies are
making almost every guy who wants a berth show
his A.B. check. I asked him if he was a Michigan
man himself and he replied no, that at present
he was occupied with digging a large sewer near
I finally got the A.B. thing straight. It appar-
ently is a license of some sort that specifies that
Joe Blow has put in so many hours at sea and
can do so and so very well. This gent also
explained that digging sewers was easier than
working on a boat and that his brother was a
first mate on the lakes.
Finally he turned off to get to the sewer situa-
tion at which he said he had worked 14 hours
the night before. I stood out on the windswept
prairie and got colder and colder as the few
cars kept going faster and faster.
Finally a '36 Ford ground to a halt and half
frozen, I climbed in to find that I was riding
with the University cop. We wasted very little
time en route and I absorbed more education.
On an average week, this minion of the law
stops 15 'to 18 cars. The auto ban authorities
have their own book of Michigan license plates
to check with and they also are in constant
communication with the license bureaus of other
This gentleman has nailed student violators
galore in his day, but does not confine his activ-
ities to An Arbor. He boasts "captures" at
Grass Lake, Wall Lake, Ypsi, Milan, Clark's Lake
and a host of other popular spots.
When I got out on Liberty I thanked the offi-
cer profusely and gave him a cigar.

-But Socialism Is Distant-
By LUDWIG LORE
(From the New York Post)
THE REAL OBSERVERS of the
Spanish conflict are men and,
women who know their business. true
journalists who report what they see
and not what they wish to find.
One of these I had the good for-
tune to meet last Saturday: Jay Al-
len, who represented the Chicago
Tribune for almost 10 years as its
Spanish correspondent. After mak-
ing. a careful study of all available
reports during these tragic five
months, I can say with conviction
that Mr. Allen was one of the best.
Though his sympathies lie obviously
with the loyalists, he does not deny
that brutalities and murder were
committed on both sides, but he ex-
plains why this is so and why it can-
not be otherwise.
The rebels are defeated, says this
correspondent, and cannot win under
their own power. Only one possibil-
ity of a rebel victory remains: that
the Germans and Italians intervene
openly and send an army of not less
than 100,000 well-equipped soldiers
to Franco's assistance. It is possible
of course, that England and France
will back down again before a Fas-
cist bluff. Hitler and Mussolini are
adepts at that game. Mr. Aller
thinks that highly improbable, how-.
ever, for a Franco Spain, established
wvith such help, would mean the los

FRANCO was defeated on the third
day of his insurrection, when he
failed to occupy Madrid, Barcelona
and the other large cities. He had
miscalculated all essentials from the
start-the duration of the struggle,
the sentiment of the population, his
own material resources and the as-
sistance his Fascist allies were pre-
pared to render.
He was successful during the first
three months because Germany and
Italy finally sent him large flying
boats in which he transported his
Moroccan troops from their home-
land to Spain and bombers to terror-
ize the villages and small towns. One
hundred airplanes from France
would have ended the terrible night-
mare within a month.
With the help of the Soviet Union,
the loyalists in Madrid are now of-
fering effective resistance. Neither
France nor Great Britain has given
any assistance. Premier Leon Blum
insists on the strict enforcement of
French neutrality. German airplanes
fly over France by night and tanks
for the rebels are smuggled over the
French border. The Premier admits
that he knows it. Doubtless Blum
wishes for the success of the loyalists,
but France must not interfere! The
good democratic governments are too
respectable to break their pledges.
The fascist countries have no such
IT IS A MISCONCEPTION to be-
lieve Spain must choose between
Fascism and Communism.
Spain will remain' democratic if
Franco and his men are defeated.
It is true that the leaders of the
Democratic parties are discredited.
They did nothing to prevent the dis-
aster and were headless when the
catastrophe came. But the demo-
cratic forces among the masses are
strong and render good service in
the front. With the exception of the
partisans of Caballero (Left Wing),
Socialists and Anarchists, nobody be-
lieves the establishment of a Socialist
state after a Madrid victory is pos-
sible. They all - particularly the
Communists-know that the great
task of reconstruction must be car-
ried out under democratic auspices.
The attempt to establish socialism
(or Communism) in Spain would re-
sult in another civil war and certain
defeat. It would be too far in ad-
vance of the Spanish masses. They
hate Fascism, which they learned tc
know under Primo de Rivera, anc
they fight it as hard as they know
how. They are not ready to embrace
