A guy I know had a date broken in Detroit,
last Sunday night. He got this letter from the
lady in question Monday:
Dear Dick,
I've just got about five minutes to write
this and somehow explain about last night.
Had to use a pencil and darn-lucky to find
paper and I hope you can make out writing,
as I am that excited.
Well, I had every intention of seeing you
'cause I didn't quit until Friday and I had
planned to have dinner at ten after I was
through-but Saturday when I realized I
owe just about every store in town, and not
another job in sight, I was really scared. To
get to the point-I was married that nite. So
you see I forgot about everything-I can't
think of how to tell you about it so will write
"To get to the point." So long until soon.
The other night I was sitting over at the Union
with a guy I went to high school with. We used
to see a lot of each other, but for the last couple
of years, the way things go, we just haven't got
together very often. It seemed to me he had
changed, somehow, I couldn't put my finger
on just what had changed about him, but it
was harder to talk to him, we didn't have the
things to talk about we used to have.
Then I realized what it was. We were grow-
ing up. I don't know how common the experi-
ence is, or how many people go through it how
often, but it's a funny feeling. You sit talking
to a guy, and you feel just the same as you
always have, just like a kid, just the same as
you did when you were in the Boy Scouts, or the
tenth grade, and all of a sudden the guy says

something about getting married pretty soon,
or tells you about his job in the same way you
have heard your dad talk about his job, and the
guy is no longer a kid like you, but a man, or
almost a man. Then you sit back and start to
wonder what the hell. Then you notice that he
seems to think differently about you, and it
hits you that you've grownpup too. Does any-
body ever see clearly and steadily how he is
changing, how his life is rolling along, or does
it always come as a complete surprise? Oh
sure, like all of us, I get feeling I'm pretty ma-
ture sometimes, pretty wise to the world and
experienced, but just the same it never seems to
me that I can't go back, that I can't get back
into my kid days any time I feel like it. There's
no doubt in my mind that 'Oeople will make
allowances for me because I'm just a young
person, and then bang, I'm 61d enough to vote
or buy whiskey or anything except be President.
It doesn't feel too good, I'll tell, you that. It puts
on you a responsibility that you don't like. It
makes you see that whatever you do, you do
from now on in as a man, not as a precocious
kid who must be praised and petted for every-
thing he turns out. Not so nice, and yet not all
my own fault either, for I feel that if I weren't
in school, I might be more aware of myself than
I am here. Maybe if somewhere along the line
I had got myself a job, and worked in a pla'ce
where people didn't know me, I would know now
what the good parts of being a man are. Maybe
if I hadn't been forced to adopt a child's attitude
toward teachers who don't like to be anything
but looked up to, I might know the same self-
respect that they seem to enjoy. School is not
a place to mature, no matter what they tell
you. School is a place to get some of the pieces
of the man who is to come, but not to find the
man himself.

Daily are written by members of The Daily
staff and represent the views of the writer
Machiavelli' Lewis
Supports Willkie . .
M ACHIAVELLI lives once more!
With sickening logical sophistry
unworthy of a high school debating team, CIO
president John L. Lewis announced Friday that
he was no longer going to play second fiddle
to the President, declaring his support of Wen-
dell L. Willkie.
Although Lewis knew that the vast majority
of members of the CIO had already indicated
their support of Franklin Roosevelt, he neverthe-'
less flagrantly flaunted his trust as leader of
those four million workers by disregarding their
expressed wishes. Viewed apart from the opin-
ions involved, the action of the CIO head can
only be interpreted as the deed of a modern
Machiavelli who rivals Stalin in the callousness
with which he regards a trust.
Oh, there will be protests to justify Lewis'
action on the grounds that it represents his own
sincere conviction. Granted, for the moment,
that this assumption be true. It still follows that
a worthy popular leader, aware that his own
views were. inimicable toward those he led, would
have subordinated personal opinion to that of
the men and women who had chosen him their
leader. Should he be elected, Mr. Willkie himself
could not be more severely condemned on the
same grounds if he proceeded to betray the trust
of his capitalist supporters by instituting demo-
cratic socialism.
BUT THE PROPOSITION that Lewis acted ac-
cording to sincere, rational conviction in
supporting Willkie holds water like a sieve when
the verbose generalizations of his speech are
examined in the light of his own and Mr. Will-
kie's previous record and statement.
His declarations that Roosevelt is on the road
to war, that America needs no superman, that
the New Deal has failed to solve the economic
depression in peacetime and is now depending
on a war prosperity are genuinely valid if taken
by ;themselves.
But Lewis thereupon proceeds to endorse a
man (who stripped of his oratory) would and
could do nothing different except allow the in-
terests behind him to emasculate as much of
social gain as they could expediently do. Snubbed
by the present driver of the band wagon, Lewis
turns like a cheap politician to support Willkie
for the job; Lewis, himself, has stated that both
play the same music.
It was before the American Youth Congress
in February of this year that Lewis declared that
domestic prosperity and peace could only be
created and maintained through the cooperative
action of labor, youth and the unemployed in
a third party movement that would free itself
of its decadent predecessors.
TODAY, although he says that America needs
no superman, John L. Lewis maintains that
the future of America lies in the personage of
Wendell L. Willkie, because the Republican can-
didate has duly stated with the dogmatic author-
ity of a heaven-sent prophet that he will:
"Put the unemployed to work; abolish pau-
perism; increase the national income by working
to increase the wages and incomes of the unem-
ployed; enlist the representative brains of the
nation to do this task; and reduce the cost of
operation of our government, and thus reduce
the taxes imposed upon individual citizens."

WASHINGTON-U.S. observers acquainted
with the morale of the German people are get-
ting bullish about Britain, in view of the heavy
RAF bombings of Germany.
These officials point out that German con-
quests on land, even if they should be extended
beyond the Balkans into Egypt or even to India,
do not relieve the problem of the 80 million Ger-
mans who must continue to take punishment
from British bombing.
It has been proved already that the military
genius of the Germans is in land movements.
They have no strength at sea, and they have
failed to gain complete mastery in the air, though
at times they have come close to it. This leaves
the British with an air force growing stronger
daily by arrival of Canadian and American
planes, to bomb the great German cities in an
attempt to break civilian morale.
German conquests abroad do not relieve the
distress of people in such heavily populated cen-
ters as Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Hamburg, and
Munich. So long as these people must spend
cold winter nights in the cellars, with no rest,
there can be no real victory for Germany.
Roosevelt Borrows
The other day Postmaster General Frank
Walker called at the White House with William
Knudsen and other defense commissioners to
sell the President the first 100 new "National
Defense" stamps, which come in 1c, 2c and 3c
"This is a strictly cash-on-the-line proposi-
tion, Mr. President," said Walker. "Have you got
six dollars?"
Roosevelt reached for his billfold. It contained
one five-dollar bill, no more. "Hmmm-short a
dollar," he mused.
Borrowing; as Shakespeare said, may "dull the
edge of husbandry," but on the other hand not
everyone gets the chance to lend the President
of the United States a buck. Everyone in the
room grabbed for his wallet simultaneously. But
Walker was the first to produce the dollar.
Grinning, Roosevelt promised to repay Walker
on 'my next payday.'
veterate labor enemies as Republic Steel's Tom
Girdler, Bethlehem's Eugene Grace and National
Steel's Ernest T. Weir.
THEN IN A STATEMENT that shall mark his
all-time low in intellectual integrity, Lewis
admits that these steel magnates may be hypo-
critical, but hastens to add, "These gentlemen
must possess some virtue, because President
Roosevelt has awarded them many a fat and
lucrative government contract at the expense of
the public purse."
Oh, what, demagogy from the mouths of high
men doth flow. In eight short months Lewis
has transferred his faith in peace and security
for America from the common people to one
man who agrees with all of Roosevelt's policies'
except Roosevelt himself. "I can make men pro-
duce; I can build up our army and navy; I can
make jobs; I can abolish pauperism; I can re-
duce taxes," Mr. Willkie boasts with the intoxi-
cating confidence of an institutionalized Na-
Lewis says that he will retire if Willkie loses

Domine Says
Religion and politics occupy opposite poles
in many respects. Political life drives for im-
mediate decision. Religious behavior can rely
upon eternity for its completion. Politics leads
a man to make alliances but religion impels him
to stand before God indebted to no man. The
present scene, for the man in political life, re-
quires devotion to human affairs, belief in im-
plementing agencies, and selection of leaders who
promise to serve party objectives.
With the Christian emphasis upon the person
and the golden rule for sbcial action considered
basic, what of the religius man and religious
groups in our decade? The task is specific. Race
hatred, class antagoni . -sectarian bigotry,
vigilantism, refusal to acept the expressed will
of the majority, strong arm practice, epithets
instead of ideas, falsific tion to gain applause
or votes, and ill-will afteran election; as religious
men view life, are anathema, positively evil and
destructive of the Christian spirit. The use of
such abuses of our freedom either before or after
the democratic process has served us at the polls
will be resisted by every religious person.
How shall he resist these threatening abuses
of our American way-these violations of the
religious principle? A few procedures may be
mentioned. First. By stating clearly, succinctly,
and faithfully the political view of the candidate
against whom he is voting. Second. By spend-
ing time at getting the view-point of neighbors
in the opposite party. Third. By reading editori-
als favoring the other party as he reads those
favoring his own candidate. Fourth. By work-
ing zealously but openly and in a sportsman-
like manner, for what he believes, and for his
choice in the political field. Fifth. By insisting
that every political or social minority which
has come forward with views and candidates in
orderly fashion shall have the same rights and
privileges as our major parties enjoy. Sixth.
By making a fresh study of the Christian thesis
and devotion out of which our western demo-
cratic institutions have grown and on which the
founders of these United States based the Bill of
A large order you say. Yes, but the religious
life itself is a large order. "See that no man
render evil for evil unto any man; but ever
follow that which is good both among yourselves
and toward all men." (I Thessalonians 5:15).

Those hospitable red and white flags, decorat-
ing State Street Saturday morning, weren't
erected to frighten Penn-they were merely part
of a Red Cross campaign. But they did serve
a double purpose.
Maybe you're interested in the headline
in the Penn University newspaper just be-
fore today's game. To quote: "Intrepid
Quaker Eleven sets out To $litzkreig Wol-
verine." Which is not modest.
So John L. Lewis has come out for Willkie.
And he'll resign if FDR wins. That's interest-
ing. But what is his following going to do if
Roosevelt wins the victory that appears to be his?
