Glory Of War - -
Exploded By First Shell.. ..
PROSAIC INDEED are writings on
the horrors of war, and yet a recent
article by Relman Morin, Tokio correspondent
of the Associated Press, sheds a surprising light
on how all inclusive this aversion to modern
strife has become.
Japanese youth is taught from infancy that
"to die participating in the supreme holy en-
terprise of mankind (war) must be the greatest
glory and the height of exaltation." Much has
been written of the indomitable courage of the
Nipponese, who leap into the enemy trenches
clutching hand grenades, dying with a smile of
joy on their lips, and reveling in similar acts of
Morin, however, presents a revealing insight
into the Japanese psychology as he quotes a
recent book published in Japan entitled "Wheat
And Soldiers." The writer was a corporal who
landed at Shanghai in the early months of the
war and participated in the Nanking and Hsu-
chow campaigns. He presents his and other
soldiers' sensations under fire:
"I had thought of myself as utterly brave
and daring, but now I was quaking inside and
my convictions were shaken. I had been perfect-
ly confident that the enemy's weapons would
never find me. Now I realized that that was
merely mental comfort.
"I was filled with anger at the sight of life
being destroyed so carelessly. So much noble ef-
fort goes into the development of a single humaan
life . . , but one chance shell ends it all. The
feeling is not unusual. It does not mean that
we refuse to die for the country, But I could
The Liquidation of Labor
To the Editor:
This letter is written in answer to an editorial
titled "Economy and W.P.A. Cuts" in the Michi-
gan Daily of Thursday, Jan. 19, 1939 in which the
House cutting of the W.P.A. appropriation was
When a depression comes it brings with it a
process for want of better words described as,
liquidation. Mercantile houses, service agencies,
industries ,and banks are tested by the adverse
conditions for flaws, for weakness, for instability,
and those failing the test find their activities
seriously curtailed, or are faced with bankruptcy.
This is the process of LIQUIDATION. It weeds
out the weak, sweeps away unsound practices,
and lays part of the foundation for sound eco-
nomic recovery. The delay of this natural pro-
cess results in the delay of recovery, and the
sooner the bottom is hit the sooner the upward
Likewise depression brings a liquidation of
LABOR. Past lean years in restrospect reveal
-anastonishing disregard of the principle of
liquidation; half heartedly as regards CAPITAL
and "whole hog" as regards labor. It is the latter
that concerns us most here. Capital and labor
may not be separated, and their mutual liquida-
tion in the past acted as a purifying influence;
but the present finds a partial denial of the
first and a vehement negative to the second. Yet
when liquidation goes on in one and is denied
in the other we have a picture comparable to a
team in harness in which one horse moves for-,
ward as the other leaps backward. Past depres-
sions illustrate the turning point to be reached
when labor becomes so cheap capital' in self-in-
terest must employ it, and when capital thus
aided comes out of hiding in seek of increased
Recent years have produced legislation tending
to destroy this process. The legislation has been
enacted under the head of emergency. It has
been lauded as averting 'possible revolution. It
has been praised as humanitarian. It produced
what is commonly known as the Washington
Alphabet-the P.W.A., the W.P.A. etc. and the
net result has been a continuation of the depres-
sion and almost as many unemployed in '39
as in '32. To blind our eyes to fundamentals by
waving the white flag of humanitarianism before
them is to play the ostrich with his head in the
sand. Humanitarianism then becomes weak sen-
timentality'and the conditions for which the flag
was waved far from being ameliorated become
One of the government agencies artificially
preventing the liquidation of labor is the W.P.A.
Until the present Congress all attempts to cur-
tail it have geen met with the shout, "Will you
let them starve?" Such a shout is purely rhetori-
cal. Facts amply refute it. Hysterical cries of this
nature recall the gallant walk of Wyckoff, a
Princeton professor, across United States during
the Silver Campaign Depression of 1897. Leav-
ing the security and comfort of his Princeton
profession, he set forth without preconceived
notions or money in his pocket to study first
hand the life of the workers by becoming one
of them. Wyckoff made it a rule to pass as rapid-
ly as possible from job to job, holding few over
several weeks. Strange as it may seem in that
depression period he found there was always
a job for the man who would work hard enough
and for what he could get. Thus working with
his hands as, a common laborer he made his
way on foot to the Pacific. Wyckoff holds no brief
for Capital or Labor. His is an accurate, deeply
human report of conditions as he found them,
and sordid as they sometimes were Wyckoff .
emerged from the two year journey convinced
of United States' virile power, of its great future,
and of its opportunities. His book, "The Workers
East and West," a revelation in its time, is no
less true today than it was in 1897. Until labor
is liquidated like everything else in depression
times, we shall have no lasting prosperity. Until
labor reaches a point where it is cheap enough
to be profitably used we shall continue in un-
certainty. Thrift, hard work, national economy,
alone spell the word PROSPERITY, and pro-
fligacy whether called humanitarianism or by
its true name as surely spells DEPRESSION.

The Catholic Role In Spain
To the Editor:r
Vicious and untruthful rumors are being
spread that American and European Catholics
are generally going over to fascism against
democracy. Such reports should be corrected, for
the facts are known.
These rumors are the deliberate inventions of
the Nazi propaganda mill, which serves Hitler
best when it creates disruption and disunity
among those who believe in and are willing to
fight for democracy.
It is true, unfortunately, as a New York Catho-
lic layman has said: "That a small group of a
few thousand within the 21,000,000 membership
of, the Catholic Church should elect to abandon
their religion and espouse the pagan war fetish-
ism of Hitler and Mussolini is deplorable. They
have, of course the heretical behavior of the
majority of Spanish bishops in supporting Fran-
co's rebellion as precedent, if they wish tox
use it. But for these renegades to be taken as
the true voice of Catholicism, as many non-
Catholics seem to take them, is to slander the
great Catholic public who, as devout believers
in a religion, really try to live in this modern
world as their conscience and culture dictates.'
Happily, the Michigan broadcasting priest,
Father Coughlin, does not represent all the lead-
in their war against the democracy and Chris-
tianity of Spain.
American Catholics whose sympathies are
necessarily with their fellow democrats in Spain,
have lacked a strong leadership in fighting the
immortality of fascism, but Catholics of other
lands have clearly and vigorously opposed the
menace of fascism. Let us cite a few facts.
Within the past few days, the outstanding
Catholic leader, Ernest Pezet, member of the
French Chamber of Deputies, asked along with
all French democrats that arms be sent to
Spain. Likewise, Georges Bidault, editor of
L'Aube, French Catholic daily of world-wide
influence, declared that the French and British
governments "have got the habit of accepting
Mussolini's promises and then accepting their
violation. They find it difficult habit to break."
He also supported Pezet in his demand for arms
Another fact, suppressed by the small group
of Franco supporters among the American Cath-
olics and never mentioned by Father Coughlin in
all his broadcasts, is that the Vatican itself, on
the invitation of the Republican Government of
Spain, sent an accredited representative to Bar-
celona six months ago. The Apostolic Vicar is
still in Barcelona. Also, it is important to re-
member that of the three Spanish Cardinals, one
of them, the Archbishop of Tarragona Vidaly
Barraquer, has never supported Franco.
The Government has done everything within
its power to insure freedom of religious worship.
On Dec: 8, 1938, one of the best known Catholics
in Spain, Prof. Jesus Maria Bellidoy Golferich,
was appointed Commissioner of Cults and liason
officer between the Government and Church
One of the greatest sorrows of Catholics in
Republican Spain is that they feel abandoned
by some of their co-religionists. And, indeed,
except for Father Teobaldi of Switzerland, who
has been there several times, and Father O'Flan-
agan of Ireland, who is again on his way there,
few priests have visited Repubican Spain, other
than the official representative of the Vatican.
The American hierarachy, with the honorable
exception of Cardinal Mundelein of Chicago and
the editors of several Catholic organs in Ameri-
ca, has shown a singular lack of charity, which
will undoubtedly have serious effects upon Span-
We, the undersigned executive committee
members of the Ann Arbor branch of the Ameri-
can League for Peace and Democracy, feel it is
our duty and privilege to make public these little
publicized facts which prove beyond a doubt
that Catholics and the Church as a whole con-
tinues to be one of the bulwarks for peace and
democracy in the world today.

A Program For Peace1
To the Editor.:
Quick and indefinite is the logic by which cer-
tain progressive groups have approved of thej
President's latest armament bill. This suddenI
shift in attitude-only a year back a naval bill
was bitterly attacked by these groups-could
stand some consideration.
Mr. Phillip Horton, for example, who is the
secretary of he New York branch of the Com-
munist Party, claims that the situation after
the Munich settlement justifies the new arma-
ment bill. His train of thought seems to be sub-
stantially as follows:
ANALYSIS PRIOR TO MUNICH
1. Given: the economic organization of the
2. Given: the distribution of political power in
3. Given: the minority control of foreign policy,
(by the President, a few Congressmen, and our
sacred State Department.)
4. Given: in the seats of the mighty abroad:
Hoare, Laval, Ede', Blum.
5. Conclusion: If we wish to follow a correct
peace policy, we will have no need for a naval
bill; it can only be "a substitute for a correct
French popular front fails, State Department
continues to withhold arms from Loyalist Spain~
allows them to flood into Japan. Chamberlain
appeases Germany at' Munich. Maverick, Bern-
ard, Blum, Eden, out.
ANALYSIS AFTER MUNICH
1. Given: . . . (see above)
2. Given: . . (see above)
3. Given: . . . (see above)
4. Given: . . (see above)
5. Conclusion (after Munich): If we want to
follow a correct peace policy, we will have need
of an armament bill; it constitutes an integral
part of our peace policy.
Now the question arises, why, with things worse
off abroad and no better here has the conclusion
changed? Why have these groups now decided to
support a strong armament policy? It cannot
be a change in the obvious externals of foreign
relations. It is rather, if one may guess, primar-
ily that they have come to look upon Roosevelt,
as the great leader (Lippmann called his last
speech a landmark in the history of Western
civilization) who will use the army as they wish
it to be used: "for the defense of the liberty and
independence of our own and other peoples."
Even assuming that the wishes of our own and
other peoples are not to be consulted, there is
one inference from this view that must be made.
It Seems To Me
By HEYWOOD BROUN
NEW ORLEANS, La., Jan. 27-I
am constantly amazed at the manner
in which masterful men. cn track

This afternoon I
was standing by
the rail at the
°F air Grounds
watching t h e
second half of
my daily double
run a bang-up
seventh. A man-
ly little lad in
uniform tapped me on the shoulder
and said, "I have a message for you."
My first impression was that this
might be bad news, but the way that
I was going left me somewhat in-
sulated against additional disaster.
Indeed, the mutuels had me down so
low that I gave the messenger boy+
a kind word instead of a quarter.
And so there came the fugitive hope
that possibly some well-wisher was
telegraphing me fresh money.
The dispatch turned out, as usual,
to be a call to duty. Gen. Hugh S.
Johnson wired, "How about your1
promise to come through for the
polios? Every other seal has per-
formed. I may have to take away your.

I had volunteered to write about in-

wondering how the General learned
that I was in New Orleans and by
what magic of deduction he arrived at
the conclusion that it woudl be poss-
ible to find me at the race track.
Politics Has No Place
However, it seems to me that the
pertinent question in regard to medi-
cal research regarding the polios is,.
Who muddied the waters by injecting
politics? Back home some of the lead-
ers of the drive for funds said can-
didly that there were difficulties this
year. Around the Greenwich and
Stamford areas some former contrib-
utors have held off because of their
bitterness toward the New Deal and
This seems to me an attitude which,
to put it mildly, might be called un-
fortunate. Already many have pointed
out that the proceeds of the drive
will go to scientists wholly concerned
with medical problems of care and
research. Surely there never should
be in America a time when it is not
possible to get a united front to com-
bat disease. Here is no discussion of
debatable legislative problems. This
'is a fight of men against death.
Undoubtedly it is true that the
name and fame of Franklin Roose-
velt have been called upon to drama-
tize the campaign against poliomye-
litis. It should have been done that
way, for such an approach has been
inevitable and effective. That ought
to be true now. It is easier for any
of us to understand a problem if
it can be illustrated for us in the
terms of an individual personality,

whose own life makes a dramatic
chapter in the study of infantile
