NIGHT EDITOR: ROBERT CUMMINS

of formulating a unified policy for all China.
Particularly in the last two years has the de-
mand for resistance to Japanese invasions be-
come articulate. Student mass demonstrations,
protest strikes of workers, urgent advocacy in
many forms by business men for a *.clearly de-
fined anti-Japanese policy have occupied the at-
tention of the government in this period.
If we study each of the communist proposals
we find that there are justifications, underlying
reasons and facts for them.
1. Half a million men and bombing planes
have been poured into futile anti-communist
campaigns since Chiang Kai-shek split with
them. As an effort to unify the nation this
was 'wasteful of energy, materials and spirit.
2. The lack of freedom of speech, press and
assemblage we showed in an editorial on Dec. 17,
presenting Lin Yu-tang's account of a police
attack on anti-Japanese meeting, the account
of which failed to find a place in any of the
following day's newspapers.
3. A national congress with a broad basis of
representation will enable large groups of cur-
rently opposition groups to the government to
voice their opinions and aid the consolidation
of -policy. In this respect China, a republic, will
have truly great representative government.
4. Immediate preparation for national de-
fense means the cooperation of the Red Aimie
with the National Armies and all their facilities
in active resistance to Japanese incursions. A
series of successes in November and December
of last year should prove the capability of Chi-
nese forces to meet Japan.
" 5. Immediate adjustment of the living con-
ditions of the masses of Chinese people may be
a proposal with no meaning. It may merely be
that kind of proposal which we know in this
country as an election promise. On the other
hand it may have serious and determined
support.
What must be constantly remembered in this
situation is that the anti-Japanese sentiment of
the largest groups of China is so great that if it
is not recognized in one form, it will manifest
itself rapidly in more evident forms.
The government has wisely exhibited its de-
sire to consider Chou en-lai's proposals, ren-
dering increased prestige to the Chinese Soviet
government. Some elements in the Koumintang
will object to union with the Communists, the
strongest anti-Japanese force, but the major.ity
of its elements are capable of seeing the beauty
of unity.

Wanted: Concrete Suggestions
To the Editor:
I happened to see a film last Thursday eve-
ning in N.S.A., the purpose of which was to ex-
pose the perfidy of the munitions trust, and so
arouse the student against war. The film was
sponsored by a rather what seems to me fanatical
portion of the student body, whose emotions out-
run their logic.
They proposed to show that wars of today are
incited by schemes of the ammunitions plants,
and that the cure for war consists simply of
doing away with the duPonts, Remington, Ajax,
Hercules and other subsidiaries whose chief pur-
pose is to manufacture war materials, along with
an equally impressive number of Continental
allies. They assume that if the sources of
war materials were destroyed, there would be no
wars. Yes, very good logic, so far as it goes-
but it must be remembered that all must do it
to make the plan effective, and I do not believe
it can be done.
A careful examination of history and the con-
ditions of today will make it apparent that
the munitions trust is only a drop in the bucket
so far as the causes of war are concerned. The
schemings of the munitions ring are but reflec-
tions of a most undesirable set of conditions,
and I do not think that just because the

mirror is smashed, the real object ceases to exist.
Zaroff and associates are only incidental.
While I do admit that the munitions industries
do everything they can to foment international
disputes to increase their profits, I can not help
feeling that their attempts would be futile were
not far more fundamental causes involved.
Wars in the past have been . fought under
many pretexts, but in the main they can be
traced to lust for power on the part of some
individual; jealousy of one potentate for an-
other's money, 'land, or superior attributes, etc.;
fancied insults or slights; and lastly economic
pressure on the population of a territory as a
whole. It is this last cause that is the most far-
reaching both in damage done in a war, and
the aftermath of bitterness.
The Romans had lust for power as their
guiding motive, and the more they got, the
more they wanted. One king of France went out
to kill a neighboring ruler because the latter
called the king of France a pig-no mean insult
to be sure, but not sufficient to cost the number
of men it did. The Goths swooped down out of
the north into Roman territory because there
wasn't enough food to feed a rapidly increasing
population. And there was war simply because
the Romans could not see the advantage of
surrendering any territory to a barbarous, un-
ruly wave of outsiders. Hunger drove them on,
and the Romans killed them off as fast as they
came, but the pangs of hunger finally sent down
too many of them for the legions and the
latter were swamped by numbers and corruption
within their own ranks.
It was economic pressure that drove the Goths
down and it is nonnmic nroeire that is imnac-

** * IT ALL
Aa-fty Bonth Wiiams-- -
BENEATH IT ALL: Chuck Kocsis, 1936 Mich-
igan golf captain and famous amateur com-
petitor, is taking a crack at journalism under
the tutelage of Professor Maurer with the
idea that he may some day become a sports
writer. If he ever develops into as great a spors
writer as he is a golfer, he should really hit the,
top ... Jean Keinath plans to attend Kathernine
Gibbs before starting in on her career as a
Latin teacher . . . Harry Wismer, who conducts
the WJR nightly sports talk was sports editor
of the Michigan State News last yer ... Asked
about costumes for one of the JGP choruses, the
powers behind it replied, "Shorts as short as can
get by the Dean's office . . . Marion Saunders is
spending most of her timres these days rounding
up boys and girls whose poppas and mamas have
enough spare sheckels to send them on one
of those all-expense blingers lasting through the
summer with Europe as the general locale . . .
Johnny Park, Frank Dannemiller, and Torn Sul-1
livan have the best chance of copping jobs
with General Electric is the word passed on by
those in the know ...
ADD BENEATH IT ALL: The Sigma Phi's plan
to capitalize on their Miller Sherwood to
make a success of the booth which they will
sponsor at the Michigras. Miller sits on a
platform over a tub of water and people throw
balls at a mark. Every time they hit it the
august Men's Council head is unceremoniously
dumped into the tub . . . The name "Michigras"
by the way was contributed by Herb Wolf, who
'did not known until afterwards that a literal
translation would be "Fat Michigan" . . . Don
Graves, roommate of this column and also known
as the FUrry Fellow, worked up a couple of suck-
ers on that old "which two numbers of the dice
come up the most often" racket until they were
just ripe for the kill. With five bucks riding
on the finale, the 5-4 odds on any two numbers
crossed him up, and the lambs sheered the
furry wolf in a most amusing reversal of form
... Agitation for a club car on Sunday's snow
train to Cadillac is roaring and raging across
the campus as more and more tickets are being
sold for the big Sunday excursion. Indications
at present are that the demand will be satisfied
by the Ann Arbor R.R.which isapromotingethe
trip. It looks like 'a real party at this stage of
the game.
yard of tillable land for each native. That land,
it is easily seen, is taxed to the limit now, and
something is going to break in the near future
with the population increasing.
Some propose that the excess population be
drained off to another land. Well, we all know
how the polite little people were welcomed here
by the ban on yellow immigration. Similarly
elsewhere.
So, others advocate the industrialization of
Japan. And she has done just that. But, be-
cause her workmen have a low standard of liv-
ing, Japan can undersell British, American, and
Dutch goods, and it has nearly wrecked the
British textile industry. Then, in an effort to
save their own industries, Britain, Holland, and'
America, set up tariff barriers, which defeat the
purpose of industrializing Japan.
There remain but two solutions-sitting down
and starving to death, or the alternative of
gambling with death in an attempt to wrest
those materials so vital for human existence. In
such a game where there is everything to be
gained and nothing to be lost, the reader does
not need to think twice which he would do.
War is all that is left. Nominally, Japan was
not at war with China, her weakest possibility,
but in effect she was-the reason?-colonization
to make it possible to support her population.
Italy was not at war with Ethiopia nominally,
bt the Italian colors float over that 'land. Whom
G rmany intends to subdue remains to be seen,
but the same forces are driving her to war too.
And of them a population in excess of what
the country will support is the chief trouble.

The problem is made only more acute by the
baby-raising contests of the two shirt-sleeve
dictators on the Continent. Then to aggravate
the situation, old hates, and traditional jeal-
ousies. between nations are brought out of the
closet and waved before the populations. Mus-
solini has the revival of the Roman =Empire to
entice his followers. Hitler hAs the Nordic su-
periority complex to puff up the ego of the Ger-
mans. Line up fifty Germans chosen at ran-
dom, and you may find two or three that might
pass the test for Aryans, but then he can
not see that. Such stupid, malicious propaganda
would only be hissed at and laughed at in
normal times, but the pinch of hard times
changes the focus of the outlook of a people so
that a beautiful mirage results.
The people of some means in all these coun-
tries do not take it seriously, but to those in dire
poverty, and they are by far the majority at
the present time, such a mirage appears boun-
tiful, and the dictator painting it a deity. The
Jews in Germany serve as objects to distract
the resentment of the general populace until such
time that the military force will be built up to
a point where it will be effective against real
opposition, such as France. It is their bitterness
over the economic situation that leads the pop-
ulations of Germany, Italy, and Japan to pre-
pare for war. We do not experience such hard-
ships in this country and Britain, as we have
plenty of resources, and our'population has not
reached the limit which the land will support,
and hence we look on others as silly sheep being
led to the brink of a precipice called war. I think
I know what every reader would do if he lived
in such hardshin -H. would Tfa righti in i.

SCREN
Rainbow On The River
AT THE MICHIGAN
"Rainbow on the River" as a pic-
ture does pretty well, in a slow and
quiet way. For children, eight or
eighty, it can be recommended as in-
tensely moving drama, and whole-
some too. For persons between those
ages it is diversion in the lightest
sense of the word.
Bobby Breen is the child star who
should appeal to the kiddies. Worked
into the supporting story are two
types of characters, those good-heart-
ed and those hard-hearted. It takes
time for the right ones to win out,
and that time is consumed with some
rather pleasant unraveling of compli-
cations. Charles Butterworth and
May' Robson provide some good fun,
and, together with some ingeniously
inserted trained mice, play the hero
parts.
The story shifts intermittently be-
tween New Orleans and New York
in the period after the Civil War
when prejudices between the warring
factions were not very much erased.
An orphaned Southern boy is living
with his loving old mammy, poorly
and happily. A priest of the neigh-
borhood traces down the boys con-
nections to a grandmother still living
in New York. Whereupon he is sent
to the grandmother, who cannot be-
lieve that he is hers, and consequently
the boy lives-richly and unhappily.
To add to his misery are an ob-
noxious niece and a "little brat"
grandniece, conniving to retain their
inheritance from the aging grand-
mother. Back home is the old mai-
my grieving her heart out to think
that her charge is in Yankee claws.
But just as inevitably as the Civil
War ended, so do the warrings be-
tween which the young boy is caught
end.
A to-be-watched-for shot is the
trained mice breaking loose at a stiff
children's party. Heroically funny is
the timid soul of Charles Butterworth
turning man for a moment.
Pamphlets Hint
At Horror War
Air Raids Hold
library Displays Booklets
Offering British Civilians
Advice And Cautions
Large scale civilian training in
rescue work and first aid in frantic
preparation for approaching war and
menacing air raids is the subject of
a group of pamphlets issued by the
British government last year and now
on display on the second floor of the
General Library.
The pamphlets, collected by R.
Webb Noyes of the library staff, are
titled "Air Raid Precautions," and
are divided into two groups, three
memoranda for local authorities, con-
taining information on the organiza-
tion of rescue and "decontamination"
squads, and several handbooks giving
special instructions for individuals.
A typical as well as significant ex-
cerpt from a section of one of the
"Memoranda" entitled "Rescue of
Persons Trapped in Damaged Build-
ings" reads, "It would also be part
of the duties of rescue parties to re-
cover the bodies of persons killed in
the collapse of buildings." This mat-
ter-of-fact treatment of anticipated
horrors runs through the instruc-
tions.
The memorandum entitled "Per-
sonnel for Casualty Service" cautions
county authorities that "men under
25 years of age who might want to
enlist should not be taken."
Two other handbooks provide in-
structions for "Air Raid Precautions
in Factories and Business Premises"

and "Anti-Gas Precautions for Mer-
chant Shipping." Respirators are be-
ing manufactured for the government
to issue to the entire civilian popula-
tion" in the areas exposed to gas at-
tack," according to the writer. The
instructions for merchantrshipping
include "preparation at the outbreak
of war," and "preparation prior to
entering a danger zone." '-

put a little oil on the slide and ac-
celerate the slip to the bottom. Force
will be used on us, and to resist force,
we will have to use force. And to
resist effectively, we must have suf-
ficient force, military equipment in a
quantity to balance that of those who
might strike us. Military prepared-
ness is a necessary evil. We can,
merely hope to find means of re-
ducing the profits of the nanufac-
turers of death-dealing equipment to
a point where they will still continue
in business, and yet not cost us too,
much for what we get. It would be
most foolish to destroy our own mu-
nitions industries until Krupp, Vick-
ers-Armstrong, etc. quit business. And
they will not quit as long as there
are causes of war such as overpop-
ulation, lust for power, traditionaj
hates, racial animosities. And what
can we do about it? Nothing.

A Proposal For
hinese U.ty .

CHINA STANDS at the moment on
the verge of performing an act
which will be the most significant in her stormy
20th century history. Last week Chinese Com-
munist leaders offered a plan for a united front
with the Nanking government, its consistent and
uncompromising enemy for more than ten years.
Its purpose is anti-imperialist and pro-demo-
cratic.
Following are the five proposals which Chouen-
lai, vice chairman of the Chinese Soviet govern-
ment, presented to the meeting of the Central
Executive Committee of the Kuomintang, sole
legal political party in China:
1. Cessation of all kinds of civil wars and
uniting of all the Chinese people to oppose Japan.
2. Freedom of speech, press and assembly in
the Republic of China and freeing of all political
prisoners.
3. Holding a national congress with a wide
basis of representation including all parties,
armies, and unions.
4. ' Immediate preparations for national de-
fense.
5. Immediate adjustment of living conditions
of the masses of the Chinese people.
If the government accepts the proposals the
Communists are willing to:
1. Cease all opposition to the Nanking gov-
ernment.
2. Cease confiscation of all lands and proper-
ties of landlords.
3. Promise "denunciation" of communism and
arrange a special area for occupation in which a
democratic government will 1eplace the Soviet
system.
On the surface the move appears to be a star-
tling reversal of the Communist position. On the
surface the whole line of the 1935 meeting of
the Communist International in Moscow ap-
peared to be a complete about-face, a denun-
ciation of former revolutionary aims and ideals.
France was one of the leading nations to fall in
with the new policy of the People's, or United
Front. Then Spain followed suit. And now
Chinese Comnunists seek a People's Front.
Actually, without attempting a judgment of
the merits of the policy, it was in direct adher-
ence to precedents set by Lenin, the leader of
the Communists. According to him, and ac-
cording to his writings at the time the treaty of
Brest-Litovsk was concluded it was worth taking
one step backward in order to take two steps
forward. Any one who could not see the reason-
ableness of such a thesis, Lenin asserted, was not
a real social revolutionary. For those critics,
right or wrong, who are prone to jeer at an "ob-
vions reversa ''"dilnha.vin faiihire. we offer this
