The NLRB's
New Chairman . .
THERE has been much talk about this
new chairman of the National Labor
Relations Board, Harry A. Millis. Some call him
the "grand national champion of labor arbitra-
tors;" others say he is a "born peacemaker."
When the Smith Committee recently denounced
the NLRB, Millis was the only member they rec-
ommended for continuation of his job.
Defense preparation will increase the NLRB's
importance in spite of its past and present repu-
tation; 'and the leader of the Board will be a
vital factor to industrial cooperation. Millis'
labor philosophy and professional background
are the only clues to the future actions which will
db much to determine the efficiency of America's
defense program.
Chairman of the Department of Economics at
the University of Chicago, Millis in 1934 was
elected president of the American Economics
Association; not because he was a leading scholar,
but because he had achieved such success in the
field of labor arbitration. For 21 years arbitra-
tion has been his specialty. t
F RIENDS say his philosophy is to keep both
sides in a dispute working together until an
agreement is reached; and to protect the interests
which neither side may have in mind, that is
generally the public. And they say he is primari-
ly interested in disputants making their own
The credit side of his record shows that he has
never hired out as an expert witness to any union
or employer, a legitimate practice; and he has
been knownto cut a proposed salary (as perma-
vent arbitrator for U.A.W. and General Motors)
in half because he thought he was not worth it.
His only other experience in public office was on
the first NLRB under the NRA. Decisions of this
Board did much to color the Wagner Act, which
Millis approves as it is.
This presentation of virtues is only one side,
of course. So far his enemies, if he has any,
have not had the occasion to chalk up balancing
figures. His ability under pressure will be one
of the interesting revelations of an interesting
near future. Rapid war production always offers
temptations to the factions of industry. Certain
.abor groups are inclined to take advantage of
the crisis to obtain long-sought privileges. Cer-
tain manufacturers welcome war fear as an,
opportunity for personal profit, in spite of non-
profit laws. And the public tends to become
impatient with such attitudes and condemns the
efforts of labor and industry in general.
T HE NLRB will have a vital part in minimizing
extremes in labor and industry, and can there-
by limit the possibilities of indiscriminate public
reaction against both groups. A man of Millis'
repute is sorely needed; should he live up to his
past record, the United States will avoid much
imminent grief. f-Emile Gel
From Other Campuses
The editors of The Minnesota Daily think
"one of the most vital links in the defense of
America is the health of the American people.
There can be no total defense against aggres-

Corrections From Dean Lloyd
To the Editor:
Like several members of the editorial staff of
the Michigan Daily, I too "managed to look in
on the work of the professional theatre in New
York." I was much interested in reading the re-
views in Sunday's Daily, but I feel obliged to
suggest that E. M. consult the program of "Old
Acquaintance." Dwight Deere Wiman to whom
great praise for "peppery, fast-moving dialogue"
is accorded did not write the play. He produced
it. The play was written by the English play-
wright, John Van Drutan, author of "Young
Woodley", "There's Always Juliet", and other
plays. If E. M. will substitute John Van Druten
for Dwight Deere Wiman in his review, I can
heartily agree with him.
I must take exception also to Mr. Milton Or-
shefsky's opinion that Miss Hayes in her reading
of Viola's lines "definitely falls short as a Shakes-
pearean verse-reader". I do not see how the lines
could have been more beautifully read. I should
hesitate to register only my opinion on this point
since I am not a Shakespearean scholar, but I
happened to see Mr. O. J. Campbell, formerly
professor of English at the University of Michi-
gan. As a teacher and student of Shakespeare,
Mr. Campbell spoke with especial appreciation
of Miss Hayes' reading of the part, saying that
she had not failed in any instance to project
both the meaning and the beauty of the lines.
I find myself wondering what Mr. Milton Or-
shefsky would suggest that Miss Hayes do to im-
prove her reading of her part. One might well
wonder why Stewart Chaney decided to design
a costume which made a little clown of Miss
Hayes, but that was a minor point in what is
after all a notable performance of Shakespeare's
charming comedy, and her extraordinary reading
of the part, in my opinion, surmounted the
handicap of her costume.
Again let me express my genuine interest in
what your reviewers had to say.I
-Alice C. Lloyd
P.S. Jose Ferrer spells his name FERRER.
(Editor's Note: We wish to thank Dean Lloyd
for her interest in pointing out two errors in
fact, and claiming one in interpretation. It is
true that Dean Lloyd's accuracy and spelling
on the former items were better than ours. But
Mr. Orshefsky pleads guilty, at most, only to a
possible hazy reference in his review of "Twelfth
Night." His statement that Miss Hayes "definite-
ly falls short as a Shakespearean verse-reader"
was not to mean, in any absolute terms, that
she fell down completely. Following as it did
the brief encomium for Mr. Evans, it was simply
to convey that her delivery of Viola's lines was
neither so skillful nor so imaginative as his de-
livery of Malvolio's. In that sense, she fell short,
and was "less fortunate" than he.)
A Wheeler Supporter
To the Editor:
"Yes, just an engineer, and a thick-skulled
one at that," will undoubtedly be the remark of
Messrs. Ogden and Slosson. Last year we were
plagued with the editorials of the A.S.U. and,
this year it is this wild chatter driving us into
war. I have watched with millions of other
Americans the tide that is bearing us nearer to
the maelstrom of hatred and bloodshed. Arms
embargo, neutrality, Western Hemisphere iso-
lation, Monroe Doctrine, all have crumbled to
a large extent under the surge of propaganda.
I am fully in favor of the present armament
program primarily as a defense measure. I
also favor the draft not only as a means of
building a standing army, but I think that the
army discipline will do me good. But when
measures have been advocated such as those of
the President in his address to Congress and in
his last fireside chat, it is time for the people to
get out of the fog of propaganda and start think-
ing for themselves. When asked by reporters
what his plans were during his Caribbean cruise,
the President stated that it was' youth and old
age that he was thinking about. It certainly
sounds like he thought a lot about these since
he got back. (Perhaps too much.)
The views expressed by Professor Slosson are
notnew, inasmuch as he has advocated aid for
Britain ever since the outbreak of the war. As

a modern professor in a progressive university,
it seems that Professor Slosson's views have been
very biased. Quoting Professor Slosson in the
letter to The Daily of January 11, 1941, "As one
of those who have 'grown timorous with the
years,' etc," I would like to say that I will be
growing timorous with this advancing year, be-
ing one of the eligible males should this country
send an expeditionary force over to Europe. As
for Mr. Ogden, if he cannot present a better
argument than to brand Mr. Huston and Mr.
Muehl as Nazis, he should crawl back in his shell
and remain silent.
If we live through this conflict, we will prob-
ably ferret out the truth with regard to the ele-
ments behind this war as to how many millions
of war profits the various corporations have
made. I wholeheartedly support the views ex-
pressed by the honorable Senator Burton K.
Wheeler in his radio talk of December 31, 1940.
Mr. Muehl and Mr. Huston have also expressed
my sentiments to a great extent.

Pacifist's View
To the Editors:
On reading over the various letters in this
column and listening to the discussions at the
Winter Parley, I find general agreement that
we are in for bgd times. The arguments for
how bad the future could be are clear and
strong; the arguments for how good it might be
are weak and unimpressive.
To echo Messrs. Muehl and Huston, why fight
or work our heads off for a more or less certain
doom? Is there any practical ideal that is worth
working for and dying for at the present time?
If so, it must be an ideal of peace and brother-
hood, and it must offer realistic means for
progress toward it.
The hopes offered for a better life arising from
successful militarism are mostly wishful thinking.
The means of war defeat the ends of peace. What
means can we use? How is a better society gen-
Our hope lies in devoloping social patterns of
thought and action that produce cooperation,
mutual respect, and good will, and an active de-
sire on the part of people in general to serve one
another. We need general attitudes that will
give our intelligence and good will a chance to
This sounds unreal. The reason is first that
such social currents grow slowly, whereas our
doom seems to be almost upon us. But if we
try to avoid the doom by methods that hasten
it, social currents will not grow at all. In the
second place, so many people have talked about
such ideals without really trying to live by them
that it does not seem possible to do so.
It is possible. Most of our democratic tradi-
tions of freedom have started with individuals
and small groups that had visions, lived by them,
and died for them. The pacifist movement is
one attempt at the present time to find a con-
sistent, active, and practical idealism. The true
pacifist seeks to solve social problems-of sup-
pression of liberty,' of economic injustice, of rac-
ial and social prejudice, of war--by means that
are consistent with the pattern of society he
seeks to establish. He knows that men are at
least sub-consciously deeply influenced by a con-
sistent, active ideology and that ideals based on
the best nature of man and the universe in the
long run will be stronger than the self-defeating
ideology of Fascism. He may have to suffer or
die because of this way of life, but his willingness
to die if need be makes living worthwhile.
Those whose hope is for personal security may
find little comfort in the future, but those whose
hope is to be of service in building a better world
need not be disappointed.

50 Years Ago
Jan. 14, 1891 - A new era has dawned for the
festive student. Those pleasant walks he has
been wont to take to "Ypsi," are now to give
place to pleasure rides on the Ypsilanti and Ann
Arbor Railroad. You can now go all the way to
Ypsilanti for the small sum of ten cents, since a
toy engine, with equipment to match, has been
made ready to take up the weary pedestrian at
numerous hours of the day, and place him quick-
