Alumnus Says Roosevelt
Is Responsible; Rebukes
Dollar-A-Year Leaders
Isolationist Assails
MoviePropaganda
By HOMER SWANDER
Charging that Fascism is on the
march in America and that President
Roosevelt is responsible for it, Sena-
tor BurtonK. Wheeler made a dra-
matic plea for peace yesterday before
a crowd that filled Hill Auditorium
to capacity.
"While he never fails to speak of
democracy, the President is today
surrounded by those whom he form-
erly labelled Economic Royalists and
Wall Street lawyers," Wheeler
charged.
"They are now called dollar a year
men," the senator declared, "and it
is they who would regiment the na-
tion. It is they who urge convoys -
and it is they who would plunge this
country into a foreign war"
Wheeler pointed out such incidents
as the refusal to allow the America
First Committee to conduct a peace
meeting at Miami, Fla., in proof of his
assertions.
"These new presidential advisers
are willing to sacrifice American lives
to save the dictators of Poland,
Greece and Hungary," he continued.
"Our first job, however, is to main-
tain and save democracy here in the
United States and we cannot do this
by going to war.,,
Concluding with an urgent appeal
to all Americans and especially the
youth of America to unite for peace,
Senator Wheeler emphasized.
Wheeler Cites
Mopie Propaganda
Earlier in the day when asked to
comment on a survey of American
newsreels, conducted by the National
Committee of College Men for De-
fense, First, Senator Wheeler accused
the movie industry of constantly pro-
pagandizing for war and of showing
only one side of the picture.
The survey, received at The Daily*
yesterday by special long-distance
communication, reveals that "in a
total of 1200 stories presented by
the five American newsreels during
the past three months, 600 have been
about war. And of these, only seven
showed the existence in the nation
of public opinion opposed to American
intervention."
"Nevertheless," the report contin-
ues, "national polls consistently show
that more than 80 out of 100 Ameri-
cans would vote to stay out of the
wai.
Senator Wheeler stated that he has
the bill completely drafted which
would require all newsreel companies
to give an equal amount of space to
both the interventionist and the anti-
war movements which he intends to
introduce upon his return to Wash-
ington.

Sun wasn't the only reason for the
ruddy complexions of Ann Arbor city
officials when seven army planes vis-
ited the city Sunday.
Two of the ships ventured to land,
turned off the runways and got stuck
in the mud. A third ship managed
to stay on the runway and landed
unsoiled. The others did not attempt
to land.

Pulitzer Play
Award Given
To Sherwood,
NEW YORK, May 5.-(/P)--The St.
Louis Post-Dispatch, Robert E. Sher-
wood's war drama, "There Shall Be
No Night," and Westbrook Pegler,
columnist, received Pulitzer Awards
today for excellence in American
journalism and letters.
The trustees of Columbia Univer-
sity, acting upon the recommenda-
tion of the advisory board of the
Graduate School of Journalism, de-
cided against an individual award
for distinguished service as a for-
eign or Washington correspondent,
but instead acted to honor recom-
mended American reporters abroad.
For the first time since 1920 the
usual $1,000 award for the most dis-
tinguished novel of the year by an
American author was not made.
The Post-Dispatch citation was
for meritorious public service, its sec-
ond in the history of the awards
established in the will of the late
Joseph Pulitzer. It was in recogni-
tion of the paper's campaign against
St. Louis' smoke "black-outs."
In 1937, the Post-Dispatch was
honored in the same-category for
its revelations of fradulent balloting
which brought a new election board
to the community.
Warning To Palefaces
Given By Michigamua
When from out the paleface wigwam,
From behind the staring moonface
Comes the slow and solemn four
booms
Telling that the evening spirit
Wanders over the woods and
meadows,
Lights the campfires of the heavens,
Then the Michigamua warriors
In their feathers and their war-paint
Soon will gather round the oaktree,
Round the oak tree called the Tappan
There to greet the trembling pale-
faces.
Many in number await the bidding
Of the loud rejoicing redskins,
For before they take the long trail
To the home of Michigamua
Many trials and many tortures
First must prove their strength and
courage.

Original Signer Of Faculty
Petition Against Daily
Hits Change In Control
No Reform Needed
.Morrison Declares
By PAUL CHANDLER
New faculty irritation at the pro-
posed "packing" of the Board in Con-
trol of Situdent Publications was
evidenced yesterday when the as-
sembled teaching staff of the litr-
ary college debated the issue for a
heated 25 minutes.
Although no action was taken, it
was learned that the entire reorgan-
ization plan was subjected to severe
scrutiny, with half-a-dozen promin-
ent professors entering the discus-
sion.
Prof. William B. McLaughln4
chairman of the Board in Control
of Student Publications, was present
and analyzed the course of events
that led to the adoption last Decem-
ber by the Board of Regents of an
amended by-law that would add to
the board two new faculty men and
give two alumni members votes.
Letter From Morrison
He was frequently interrupted by
other members of the literary col-
lege staff, who questioned him on
particular point of the new measures
and on the atitude of the publica-
tions board toward it.
Prof. Roger L. Morrison, of the en-
gineering college, was among the
faculty members who yesterday hit
the Regents' reorganization plan as
"unnecessary."
One of the original signers of a
faculty petition urging an investiga-
tion of The Daily, Professor Morri-
son said in a communication to the
editors that "with the considerably
modified attitude of the editors, I
do not see a necessity for any de-
crease of student control."
He added that "an increased sense
of editorial responsibility is vastly
preferable to increased faculty con-
trol."
Professor Morrison's letter follows:
"To the Editor:
"Recently I was asked for a state-
ment regarding the proposed
change in the Publications Board
but declined because I felt that I
lacked sufficient information as to
all the factors involved. However,
on reading 'What's Happened So
Far' in Sunday's Daily I was re-
minded that ihad signed a petition
about a year ago which made me
to some extent, a party to the
present controversy.
"I most certainly did not sign
that petition as a result of 'two
or three' radical editorials, but be-
cause of a steady stream of them
appearing over a period of several
years, to the almost complete ex-
clusion of any other type. All em-
ployers, and all persons who did
not believe that billions upon bil-
lions of dollars could be borrowed
and given away without harm to
the country were continuously vili-
fied but, no matter what they did or
advocated, practically no word of
criticism of Communists or other
radical elements of society ever
appeared. The New Deal was en-
thusiastically supported by The
Daily until the President made
slight concessions to conservatism
and then it was vicious personal
abuse heaped upon him by one
writer which finally gave rise to
the petition.
"If no radical views vee ever
expressed in The Daily I should be
disappointed for I believe that
everyone should have an oppor-
tunity to state his beliefs, whatever
they may be, but the Michigan
Daily, which belongs to the Uni-

Nine Will Meet Normal Today-

American Interventionist Is Real
Fifth Columnist, Wheeler Asserts

By A. P. BLAUSTEIN
Sen. Burton K. Wheeler, isolation-
ist Montana Democrat, asserted in a
press conference here yesterday that
the real fifth columnists in this coun-
try were those who were trying to
drag the United States into the pres-.
ent conflict and that "dictatorship
would inevitably follow an American
declaration of war."
"And what will be still worse,"
Senator declared, "will be the terrific
depression which will follow the war
and the probability of a permanent
totalitarian government in the United
States."
Charging that approximately 90 per
cent of the American population was
opposed to intervention, Senator

wasn't one top-notch military or nav-
al authority who believed that the
United States could successfully be
invaded.
Claiming that an army of at least
two million men with superior equip-
ment and supplies would be needed
to attack the U.S., he asserted that all
the ships in the world would be in-
adequate to handle a force half that
size and that it would be absolutely
impossible for the Nazis to do any
serious harm to America with planes.
"As a result,"he said, "I believe
that national defense should begin
at our own shores and that we should
remain at peace until the Western
Hemisphere is endangered."
,"If Hitler should be victorious." he

straight Conference triumph, sound-
