Great Britain's
Foreign Poliey. *
N SPITE of the overwhelming victory
which Mr. Chamberlain won in the
House of Commons Tuesday there have been un-
mistakable evidences of serious dissension in Eng-
land over the about-face in foreign policy which
the government has introduced. For the vote, as
a Member of Parliament pointed out, was to a
great extent a "triumph of Party discipline,"
raher than a reflection of the sentiment of the
English people. The Opposition group in Parlia-
ment has the support of a great section of the
press throughout the United Kingdom for the
first time on a major issue, with every indication
of strong popular feeling behind it.
When the present government went to the polls
in 1935, its electoral manifesto proclaimed that
the League of Nations was the key to British for-
eign policy. Mr. Chamberlain's frank repudiation
of the League in favor of an entente with Italy is
thus in direct violation of the people's mandate as
well as of the direction of British policy since the,
War, and the 330 Conservatives who voted for the
government on the question of Mr. Eden's resig-
nation and its implications, cannot be considered
to have expressed the opinion of the people.
Mr. Chamberlain has stated that he contem-.
plates no exchange of the friendship of France for
that of Italy, and that his sole object in extending
the olive branch to Mussolini is the establishment
of European peace on the basis of a four-power
understanding. The premise upon which such a
thesis is built is that the division of interests
in Europe is between Britain and France on the
one hand and Germany and Italy on the other.
Such a picture, however, is extremely inaccurate.
The whol 'history of the past five years demon-
strates the fallacy of the contention that the
"have-not" nations can be pacified by concessions
from the "have" nations.
No concession from Great Britain and France
can forestall the constant search for diplomatic
and military victories which is inherent in a dic-
tatorship maintained from the top and directly
supported only by a small ruling clique. Mr.
Chamberlain declares Wts policy to be one of
practical exigency, as opposed to the idealism of
Ms. Eden.
The real difference is simply that Mr. Chamber-
lain wishes to cooperate with Germany and Italy
for the maintenance of European peace, while Mr.
Eden wishes to cooperate with France, the U.S.-
S.R. and the small democracies. In simple words,
Mr. Chamberlain seems to insure peace by
strengthening the war-making governments,
while Mr. Eden wishes to strengthen the nations
interested in maintaining peace

The League of Nations did not die a natural
death-it was stabbed in the back by just such
politics as those of the present British prime min-
ister. The situation is desperate, it is true; it is
not, however, hopeless, if the people of Great
Britain can be aroused to the danger of their gov-
ernment's attitude, and, what is perhaps more
important, can make themselves heard.

Proving That
Figures:Do Lie.. .
A TERRIBLE WRONG has to be right-
ed, and the Daily undertakes to do
the job.
This project of justice is in the nature of saving
a name. It is a name that has been bandied about
and taken in vain for many years,.grumbled at,
joked about, and misused to the point of seeing

country-a climate properly distorted by the reg-
ular trials of getting an education which accom-
pany it. Getting down to facts, statistics of the
United States Weather Bureau show that Ann Ar-
bor weather is the same weather as that of most
of the Lower Peninsula, Wisconsin, upper Illinois,
Indiana, and Ohio, and upper New York.
This north central weather belt, in which Ann
Arbor is located, has an average of about 30 to 40
inches of rain and snow a year, or less than is
found in any other section of the country except
the southwest and middle western desert and
plains regions.
But Ann Arbor's claim is not limited to the
fact that its weather is no worse than that of
any of the sections of the country around it. The
proof now moves to show that it is in one of the
most favored sections of its belt. Figures show
that the normal amount of precipitation in Ann
Arbor is 31.51 inches per year, compared with the
following: Detroit, 32.06; Grand Rapids, 33.77;
Marquette, 32.47; Chicago, 33.28; Pittsburgh,
36.35; Buffalo, 37.28; and New York City, 44.63.
Lansing and Alpena beat Ann Arbor, having 31.43
and 30.17 respectively.
Besides this, Ann Arbor has normally more
sunny days and fewer actual days of rain than
most cities around it. Specific figures show that
in 1931, for example, it rained or snowed here
only 109 days out of the year, while in Detroit
it rained 123 days, in Grand Rapids, 112, in Lan-
sing, 140, in Saginaw, 141, and in Alpena, 148.
That same year Ann Arbor had 136 clear days,
compared with 111 for Detroit, 83 for Grand
Rapids, 99 for Lansing, and 104 for Alpena. These
figures run in about the same relationship for
other years.
The case for the client rests. Next time there
is a half-fog with ice, slush, and puddles over
the side-walk, Ann Arbor should be left out in
condemnations of the weather.

ISHE FORUM)
Typbgraphical Men Strike
To the Editor:
There is a strike in progress at the Ann Arbor
Press Company. The men on strike are members
of the International Typographical Union and
include only the workers in the composing room.
The men assert that they have been forced to
work consistently hours beyond the Union maxi-
mum, that they frequently have been forced to
work on Sundays, and on occasion to work to the
extreme of 80 to 90 and even 94 hours a week.
The men also charge that the management of
the Ann Arbor Press initiated the organization of
an illegal company union, entered into contract
with it, and then violated that contract by declar-
ing a six per cent decrease in wages without any
allowance of collective bargaining.
Conditions in the plant were said to be extreme-
ly unsanitary. Michigan State law requires that
fumes from molten metal be vented properly; this
requirement has not been met by the Ann Arbor
Press according to these reports.
The Wagner Act guarantees the right d collec-
tive bargaining to employees in industries affect-
ing interstate commerce. In addition, the Mich-
igan "Union Label Law" provides that all state
printing must be done in shops which maintain
the International Typographical Union stand-
ards. The Ann Arbor Press comes within the
jurisdiction of both these laws. According to re-
ports such as those already indicated in this let-
ter, the Ann Arbor Press has violated both these
laws.
We suggest that the University discontinue
patronage of the Ann Arbor Press until such time
as it is proven that proper and legal labor stand-
ards are met.
In view of reports of labor injustice in other
departments, as well as in the composing room,
we suggest also that a thorough investigation
should. be made of all departments of the Ann
Arbor Press.

'tfeejur-lofe
Heywood Broun
You can't have isolation without cooperation.
And so I am for international cooperation.
Most of the arguments 4or a complete divorce
between America and the rest of the world have
been based upon the assumption that any single
country could set out the
dance, Qr the entire program,
if that happened to be its will
and pleasure.
Current history proves the
fallacious nature of any such
belief. China would just love
isolation. But obviously it
hasn't got it. Other nations
have decided to veto China's
desire to be left alone. I feel
certain that Czechoslovakia would be tickled to
death to become a hermit nation. But Hitler
has just announced a policy of self-determina-
tion for Nazis, and so the idea is out.
It may be argued that we are not quite in the
defenseless position of China and that our geo-
graphical situation is less precarious than that
of the Czechs. It will be said that oceans inter-
vene between us and our European and Far East-
ern neighbors. But those seas are less wide
than they were generations ago, and even in our
case we cannot choose isolation unless the rest
of the world gives assent. It takes more than
a single resolution to make a hermit in the case
of the individual or the nation.
The Cloud In The Sky
If I am asked whether I seriously anticipate the
landing of a Japanese army upon our shores in
vwenty years I would reply "no." And the same
answer would go for a German army or an Italian
army.
Nevertheless, I think the worst possible counsel
given recently in Congress has been that of Ham
Fish, who thought it would be well for the United
States to go to sleep for twenty years and let the
rest of the world destroy itself. If the rest of the
world destroys itself I have a notion that Man-
hattan, Bridgeport and Sioux City will feel the
reverberations. This is not an era in which any
people can afford to turn in for a long slumber
with no greater protection than a "Don't disturb"
sign hung upon the door. The cleaner is only
too likely to knock.
But, having said all this, I would not, if I had
a vote, support the bill for a vast naval increase.
I am ready to admit that some of the most ardent
pacifists are less than fair when they maintain
that such an armament is lanned by those who
want to wage excessive war upon Japan imme-
diately. Japan is only one factor in the picture.
We must face the fact that the Fascist Interna-
tional is powerful in the world today and that it is
aggressive.
An Incomplete Analogy
Undoubtedly the imperialistic designs of the
Kaiser were vastly exaggerated before we drifted
into the great war. I do not think the Fascist
cream of world empire has been overplayed. I
think it is real and actual. But before we fight
and even before we build let us sit down and talk.
The odds against a successful termination of any
peace or disarmament conference are long. And
yet that is the way to bet. Mankind will assuredly
profit more by winning a long shot wager on peace
.than by playing any odds-on choice for war.
And I would indict the pacifists, for all their
sincerity, because they have been so articulate in
announcing that the conflict is just around the
corner. I doubt that very much good will come
out of some of the strange quinellas of the mo-
ment, and I have no intention of backing the
eurious alliance of Oswald Garrison Villard, Boake1
Carter and Father Coughlin.
Of course, peace is in danger. And it can be
protected only by an extension and prolongation
of discussion. If we bury our heads in the sand
and say, "None of this means anything to us," I
have a very good idea of the exact spot where
we will be kicked.

Indeed, the question is even larger than the
preservation of America. The preservation of
mankind is at stake.
vors the transferring of war funds to socially
useful projects (American Youth Act, public
housing, education, etc.)
3. The Michigan Anti-War Committee ap-
peals to workers and young people to refuse
in the present Far Eastern crisis to ship war
materials to Japan or to support Japanese
militarism.
4. The Michigan Anti-War Committee ex-
presses its refusal to support our government
in a war against Japan as an appeal to Jap-
anese youth to refuse to support the military
machine of Japan. The Committee favors
the repeal of the Oriental Exclusion Act.
5. The Michigan Anti-War Committee fa-
vors the freedom of colonial peoples. It de-
mands the withdrawal of American troops
from China. It demands the freedom of China
from all imperialism, Japanese, European, or
American, as well as from exploitation by na-
tive agents of foreign imperialism.
6. The Michigan Anti-War Committee
contends that the basic economic divisions
and dislocations of world economy can not be
solved by a "collective security" maintenance
of the status quo, or by division of spoils but
by fundamental readjustments so that the
peoples of the world have free access to raw
materials and are able to carry on trade and
commerce freely, in their own interest.
All students on this campus concerned with
the fight against war and war preparations should
join us.

To the Editor:
This week marks the organization of the Mich-
igan Anti-War Committee, a group which is un-
equivocably opposed to war and war preparations.
Of this group of students, many support the Ox-
ford Pledge. But acceptance of the Pledge is not
a requisite of membership; several members do
not subscribe to if. However, all members sup-
port the six-point program submitted below:
The Michigan Anti-War Committee, being an
organization of young people who are interested in
fighting against war and establishing real, lasting
peace, is vitally concerned with making the Uni-
versity of Michigan student body aware of the im-
portance of the war question and of the necessity
of positive action against war and war prepara-
tions.
Particularly at this time it is necessary to re-
vitalize the forces fighting against war inasmuch
as various elements who formerly opposed war
are favoring war "for the defense of democracy
i.gainst fascism" and collective security pacts,
which in reality mean support of war-prepara-
tions and ultimately war itself. Against collective
security and war as a way to achieve peace,-we
counterpoise the internationalism of workers and
young people in the struggle against war-making
forces.
The Michigan Anti-War Committee believes
that this point of view is implicit in the Oxford
Pledge, which reads: We refuse to support the
government of the United States in any war it
may undertake." The Oxford Pledge expresses
our opposition to collective' security, recognizing
