University Camp
Few Radical
President Ruthven in an official
pamphlet issued last week by the!
University declares that "student
radicals are a pitifully smail group
'on the Michigan campus,"' and that
they reflect merely a "passing phase
in student development."
"Radical groups are conspicuous
not by their size, but by the fact
,that they are more articulate than
other student groups," he says. "When
4a student expresses radical opinions
he shows that he has an incomplete'
grasp of social problems."
Michigan's faculty contains only
"a few, if any, dangerous radicals"
and.most of the faculty men "merely
try to raise social questions for ex-l
aminations," the President continues.

Secretary of State Hull's protest,
against the British order in council'
authorizing the Royal Navy to seize
all exports of German origin or ow-f
nership is not likely to have much
effect, Prof. Laurence Preuss of the
political science departmentsasserted
yesterday in an interview.
The order, which is illegal accord-
ing to the general principles of in-
ternational law, concerns United
States trade with the neutral Euro-
pean nations, especially Italy, that
act as retailers of German goods,
Professor Preuss observed. The law
pertainent to the case was established
by the Declaration of Paris of 1856,
which provided that neutral vessels
are not subject to seizure unless they
are transporting contraband goods.
In the event that an American
vessel was seized, Professor Preuss
explained, a protest to the Birtish
Prize Court would probably be de-
nied on the grounds that the orders
of the Crown are conclusive anc} are
invalid only if applied to an exces-
sive degree.
The increased restriction ofGer-
man trade is one of a number of
serious reprisals enacted since the
war began, Professor Preuss noted,
reprisals of the three months of the
present war being equal those of three
years of the World War. Acts such
as the seizure of German exports
are illegal, he pointed out, except
when they are in answer to some
violation of law by the enemy; and
they must not be of severity out of
proportion to the original offense.
"Britain maintains that the Order
is justified by the indiscriminate
sowing of mines by Germany in vio-
lation of the Hague Convention of
1907," Professor Preuss declared. The
provisions of the Convention stated
that a moored mine must become
harmless one hour after being sown,
a loosed mine must be harmless one
hour after being set adrift, and no
mines could be placed along the coast
of the enemy territory for the purpose4
of obstructing commercial ships.
During the World War, safety chan-
nels for merchant vessels resulted in
the loss of no lives from mine bar-"
rages, he reminded.
Professor Preuss said Germany's
justification for violation of these

laws was that the whole area around
the British Isles is a war zone; and
that since merchant ships were con-
voyed by naval vessels, they must
expect to share the same fate. This
argument may be valid concerning
fixed mines, he marked, but could I
not apply to the use of drifting
mines. Another Nazi justification
for the minenkrieg is that the British
blockade in general is illegal, to which
Britain replies that the blockade di-
gresses from law only where cir-
cumstance requires new interpreta-
tion of old rules. Britain also insists
that German submarine mnethods
violating agreements as recent as
1936 legalize the blockade reprisal,
Professor Preuss stated.
"The whole situation is obscured
by a lack of facts, and lack of evi-
dence as to who committed the first
illegality," Professor Preuss ob-
served. "Once a succession of repri-
sals is begun international law is
virtually suspended." Neutral na-
tions suffer great losses of property
because of Britain's decree, and both
lives and property because of Ger-
many's, he noted.
