Winston Churchill
ee
Calling America .
N MANY WAYS Prime Minister
Winston Churchill's recent inter-
national broadcast was a masterpiece of oratori-
cal strategy. He was perhaps pardonably proud
of Britain's spectacular drive against Italy in
North Africa. His verbal barrage directed against
Benito Mussolini must have pleased many a
British heart. He was shrewd enough not to
minimize the danger of invasion in the months
ahead. To Americans his promise that Britain
would not call for an expeditionary force from
the United States-"not this year, not next year,
nor any other year that I can foreseee"-was
reassuring as the specific pledge which for
months they had longed to hear. But the Prime
Minister's speech was inadequate by failing to
elucidate Britain's war and peace aims.
Britain is fighting "to preserve democ-
racy". But that objective has never been
officially and publicly defined in sufficient
and desirable detail. Churchill has said in
the past that "it must be one of our aims to
establish a state of society where the ad-
vantages and privileges which hitherto have
been enjoyed by the few shall be far more
widely shared by the men and youth of the
nation as a whole". But outside' of a few
guarded generalizations such as this 4uota-
tion; the Churchill Government has been
markedly reluctant to present its sugges-
tions for the construction of The Good So-
ciety in the world after the war. The Cause
of Britain is thus weakened in so far as it
is a purely defensive cause, a frenzied effort
merely to fortify the status quo without due
considerations for the social responsibilities
which Britons must face in the inevitable
era of reconstruction.
CAPTAIN LIDDELL HART, the noted British
military strategist, has come to realize the
need for the creation of a "new order in Britain,
ready for extension abroad, that will be superior
in nature and attraction to the Nazi order."
Labor Par y Leader Clement Attlee has insisted
on the necessity for "bold economic planning on
a world scale." Cabinet Minister Herbert Mor-
rison conceives the British aim as a cooperative
international system, which depends on and
involves "the end of selfish national interest"
and also the abolition of private monopoly. Such
intellectual leaders as Harold Laski are support-
ing the concept of a socially constructive coun-
ter-revolution to offset and supersede the Revo-
lution of Nihilism. It is important to know spe-
cifically the extent to which the Churchill Gov-
ernment favors these proposed peace aims.
Granted that the military protection of
Britain is alone a gigantic and exacting
undertaking. But surely Prime Minister
Churchill must realize the values of clearly
and completely defined peace aims. Too
long have all the democracies, including
Britain, been guilty of intellectual retreat
before the negative Nazi doctrines glorify-
ing force and world serfdom. For without
a positive, challenging intellectual content,
without original and daring social thinking
in terms of the future, without concrete
public expression of the results of that
thinking, the Cause of Britain will disin-
tegrate into a series of shallow, ultimately
meaningless military maneuvers.

A Good Argument ...
To the Editor:
In Mr. Mascott's Wednesday column of "Fire
and Water" I was invited to reply to certain
charges and questions. So I should like to take
advantage of the invitation now, and incidentally
to thank The Daily for the open policy of this
column, which has served those who, like Mr.
Mascott and I, love a good argument.
REALLY THOUGH, we wouldn't even have a
good argument if everyone who thinks as
I do were summarily shipped off to Canada.
if Mr. Mascott thinks that everyone of this con-
viction should leave the United States and U.S.
citizenship and join the Canadian army, he
must anticipate a rather dreary country. There
would be a lot fewer people and no chance for
argument, because one side would be gone. But
the worst part of all from our point of view
would be that Mr. Mascott and his friends, or
more probably the strict isolationists would con-
trol American opinion. That's not democratic.
As I see it, a student who believes as I do should
take one of two courses. Either he may volun-
teer immediately in the armed forces of our
country, whose course as an active opponent of
Fascism is pretty certain, or he may remain
here until the draft and try as much as possible
to make others realize the truth of which he is
so completely convinced. Many of us, includ-
ing the party variously referred to by the column
as "a gentleman by the name of Frank Ryder",
"this gentleman" and "frankly, Frank", are
going to be in the forces of this country at the
latest by July 1. That is the end of our student
deferment, which, for reasons of our own con-
cern, most of us accept. In the meanwhile, for
myself, I shall try my best to convince those
with whom I come in contact of the unparalleled
crisis which makes both our conscription and
our effective aid to Britain necessary. But I
should hardly bother the A.S.U. isolationists,
for example, with the suggestion that, in order
to be consistent, they sabotage factories work-
ing on British orders, which is a perhaps rather
violent analogue to the suggestion that I leave
for Canada.
As to the Forum there are some things I should
like to say, too. 1) If the "results" of the debate
were to be published there was one time to pub-
lish them, and that was after the debate. I was
not the one who suggested withholding them.
Is it good journalistic practice for the sponsors
of an impartial organization to publish origin-
ally withheld figures a week later to discredit
a poll taken long after the debate? Would you
have published those figures if you were not
personally in favor of the view they seemed to
support? 2) In these matters I have no "feel-
ings" to be deferred to. 3) The word "packed"
was obviously unfortunate. If the Forum thinks
I used it in reference to their organization, I
can only say that that was not implied. I apol-
ogize for having allowed the implication. I have
expressly avoided asking members of organiza-
tions sympathetic to my views to appear at de-
bates. But this is the point: for one reason or
another almost every person who spoke against
the bill at the original debate appeared to be
a fairly intimate acquaintance of every other
speaker. It was in no sense "the public". E very-
one is free to come and speak, but the active
audiences of the Forum, like those of the Par-
leys, have up to now constituted a rather co-
hesive group-even a rather predictable group.
This is emphatically nothing against the
Forum. Only a sign that the group which has
in the past been most active in campus dis-
cussion is now isolationist and that the "aid
to Britain" element was new and at the time
comparatively unorganized, a fact which is being
rapidly remedied!
AS FAR AS "limited aid" is concerned, we be-
lieve of course that that is a chimaera. T1'e
President, the Cabinet and apparently Congress
(not to mention a majority of the people) are
agreed on that. "Limited aid" is an expression
of sympathy at best. As Mr. Mascott should
realize, the inherent indecisiveness of the posi-
tion and the disagreements which would arise
about the "limit" would mean the defeat of
Britain. As for war, that is a different matter.
Almost all of us favor real aid as embodied in
Bill 1776 as the last chance to escape war. Ask-
ing us if we would go to war is hypothesizing the
worst possible eventuality and asking us to base

our policy on that. Every individual has his own
answer to the question, but that is purely per-
sonal, and I am always glad to discuss my posi-
tion personally with anyone.

Bad Manners And The Daily
To the Editor:
The Daily columnists seem to be keeping up
their tradition that bad manners make good
argument. The anonymous author of the Reply
Churlish is quite churlish, while mascott (Lau-
rence E. Mascott, '41,) maintains his high level
of wit and sophistry.
TO TAKE TOUCHSTONE FIRST. This excel-
lent appeaser begins by saying that pro-
fessors have no right to opinions outside their
chosen field-a doctrine popular in authori-
tarian circles but hardly one congenial to the
American tradition. I take it that Touchstone's
general ignorance of any field whatsoever, which
perhaps distinguishes him from the professors
he detests, is the basis for his Stalinist inter-
pretation of the war against Hitler. It is, he
assures us, just a war between two imperialisms
and it makes no difference to free countries who
wins the war (see the end of his second para-
graph).
ute t. narnaovcalynd nnnrhan.- +to gho

have made a mess of things. All of which goes
to show that Touchstone neither hears the pro-
fessors he attacks when they make public ad-.
dresses, nor reads what they have written. But
why should a columnist's omniscience stoop to
cloistered and academic minds for information?
AtR. MASCOTT's high wit is directed person-
ally at Mr. Frank Ryder; who on various
occasions of late has presented the aid-to-
Britain argument with courage and courtesy.,
Mr. Mascott's pet idea is that all in favor of aid
to Britain should join the Canadian army, or,
if too old for that, contribute their worldly goods
to the British exchequer. This is the kind of
sophism which leads some men to urge Com-
munists to go to Russia. The purposes of aid
to Britain is to save America from the various
kinds of aggression she faces in the event of a
Nazi victory: ideological, economic, diplomatic,
and in time, political and military. This pur-
pose can not be accomplished by the method
Mr. Mascott urges. A number of Americans
have made their contribution in both kinds.
But much as such persons are to be admired, we
know that the battle against Hitler will not be
won by such scattered efforts in this country.
The tragic futility of the voluntary support of
Spain proves this, if any proof of the obvious
is necessary. The chances are that Mr. Masctt
was a strong interventionist in regard to the
Spanish war. As long as the English and French
boys were to do the fighting, I hazard the guess
that he was no appeaser. And how he and his
friends (if I may hazard another guess) damned
the isolationist French and British political
leaders who chose appeasement rather than risk
the lives of their young men. But now that the
job of beating Hitler depends, in the last anal-
ysis, on us, such men as Mr. Mascott are most
ingenious at finding reasons for appeasing Hit-
er. Our conservative appeasers, like Col. Mc-
Cormick and Sen. Johnson, use arguments es-
sentially the same as those of the British Con-
servative party before Munich. Our "liberal"
appeasers, like Norman Thomas, Touchstone,
and Mr. Mascott (I trust I have pigeon-holed
them rightly), use the arguments which flour-
ished in Popular Front circles in France before
Munich. Both groups claim to detest Hitler,
but actually they are his most effective advance
guard.
- I. V. S. Ogden
FIRE & WATER
by mascott
ONE OF THE TERRIFIC HANDICAPS of
modern-day argumentation is the seeming
necessity for each participant to preface his
remarks with some such statement as "Of
course, I'm no Communist, or no Socialist or
appeaser or what have you" or, on the other
hand, "of course, I believe in civil liberties but .."
We've always believed, however, that every
argument should stand in itself, to be judged
upon its own merits and not upon the political
affiliations of its supporters nor the past beliefs
of its supporters. We, therefore, in reference to
Mr. Ogden believe all considerations as to our
stand toward Spain or before Munich highly
irrelevant to the present controversy. But we
will bow to the pressure of the times and preface
this column with "Of course, we're not com-
munists or socialists or appeasers." And it's
true, although we still consider the latter state-
ment irrelevant.
IN ALL THE CONTROVERSY (and so far
we've enjoyed it with both puckish and in-
tellectual glee) between Messrs. Ryder, Ogden,
Touchstone, Mascott, et al.. there is the con-
solation that the Michigan Forum has been
"cleared" by all parties. We feel that the Forum
should continue as an active body sponsoring
discussions on important issues of the moment.
And such discussion is important, even though
it may be dominated or weighted by the opin-
ions of one side, not only because of the accepted
arguments for free discussion but also because
by such discussion the views of those other than
the supporters of a measure are recognized-
Congress, for example, asking all groups and
representatives to appear before its hearings on
the Lease-Lend Bill even though it was a fore-

gone conclusion that the Bill would be adopted
in some form, was able to arrive at important
clarifications and some qualifications on the
measure.
fN ANSWER to Mr. Ogden's analogy that our
claim that all those who think the British
battle is Armageddon (not all those who favor
aid to England) should enlist in the Canadian
Army is similar to the argument that all Com-
munists should "go back to Russia" we say:
Communists in America are urging communism
for America here and thus their best field of
action is in the U.S. They, therefore, should
have the right, under our civil liberties, to ex-
press themselves here. But rabid intervention-
ists, those who favor even going to war for
Britain (whatever their reasons) face a situa-
tion where the field of battle is in Britain now,
a situation which they claim is so urgent that
all help is needed now. They, therefore, we still
feel, should indicate the sincerity of their views
by fighting now, either physically or economic-
ally, for Britain now and in Britain or her pos-
sessions now. Joining the armed forces of the
U.S. means that aid to England is deferred be-
cause, as yet and we wholeheartedly hope never,
the U.S. army is not actively aiding England.
And if aid to England is so paramount to the
preservation of democracy and the safeguard-

Karl Karlstrom
U.S. and Britain that democracy
which MacLeish described in "Ameri-
ca was Promises" would be attained.
We don't demand absolute certainty
but we demand some assurance es-
pecially in view of the disillusion of
the last war. We fail to see any as-
surances for the betterment of dem-
ocracy in the highly dangerous pres-
ent fiscal policies of the New Deal,
the dictatorship potentialities of the
Lease-Lend Bill, the character of
some of our most ardent intervention-
ists (even though it must be admitted
that some of the boys on our side are
not exactly wholesome to our intel-
lectual appetites) and, above all, in
the realization that if the U.S. does
actively enter the conflict, the war
can only result in misery, depression,
and the degradation of democracy
rather than its betterment.'
As for the claim that isolated, in-
dividual aid to England is inconse-
quential, we point to the power of the,
individual in the U.S. by persuasion
and example, to lead others, count-
less others to follow his position. We
think it would be comparatively easy
if a limited amount of work were
placed into it, to create an "American
Student Volunteer Fighting Unit for
Britain" from among the varied col-
leges, and by something similar to
the chain-letter fad, start thousands
of dollars, taken out of present con-
sumption, rolling ┬░toward the foreign
exchange coffers of Brittania. We,
personally, would be far more con-
vinced of the sincerity of ardent in-
terventionist's opinion or the unpar-
alleled demands of the present crisis
if stirring letters supporting that
point of view were addressed from
an American "somewhere in England'
or Canada." We would then be given
the blessed example of action con-
sistent with opinion.
CERTAINLY do we decry the vi-
cious charge that we are "ap-
peasers." In fact, among our ac-
quaintances and especially among the
boys at The Daily, we have yet to find
an "appeaser"-in its Webster or
Chamberlain and Halifax sense. No
lasting peace, no terms, we believe,
can ever be reached with Hitler and
for Herr Schiklegruber we have-nei-
ther love nor sympathy.
But if "appeaser" means anti-war
and certainly this definition seems
to be implicit in the smear-technique
of those who use it most flagrantly,
wantonly and injudiciously, we
wholeheartedly embrace that term
to ourselves.
FUNDAMENTALLY, we favor aid to
England-limitedonly in the
sense that such aid shall not lead
us into war or destroy our liberties,
