Of Labor Disputes .. .
newly created Of.fice of Production
Maagernent was to issue a statement declaring
that "in the immediate future everything in
Our national life must be subordinated to the
necessity for defense"; and after warning in-
lustry against wartime profits, further urged
labor to "avoid any attempt to make improper
use" of its bargaining position.
This tendency of labor to take advantage of
its importance in time of crisis has always
been manifest in labor policy; perhaps rightly
so, for during normal years labor progress is
unfortunately slow. But often there is a thin
line between organizational expansion and un-
intentional sabotage of defense production.
With this dangerous distinction in mind, the
AFL's Metal Trades Department, whose 13
unions include 900,000 of the most essential
skilled workers in defense industries, has re-
cently offered to prohibit all strikes for the dura-
tion of the emergency, if employers agree to
settle disputes by arbitration.
the Building and Construction Trades De-
partment, whose 19 unions include 1,500,000
skilled workmen, have also agreed to ban strikes
on defense projects. But, unfortunately, these
proposals aroused little response from other
Facing this lack of cooperation, the Office
of Production Management has only one effec-
tive alternative-to organize on an active, func-
tional instead of an advisory basis. The general
plan should be to place the OPM at the top
of a network of agencies extending to local
units. These agencies, working with field rep-
resentatives from the railroad unions, the AFL
and the CIO, under a co-ordinator in Washing-
ton, would adjust labor disputes in defense in-
dustries before strikes occurred. Labor repre-
sentatives could be given responsible executive
posts in charge of such fields as labor training
and information.
SUCH AN ARRANGEMENT would not only
reduce the immediate danger to defense prep-
aration, but would create a structure for a per-
man ent organization for the promotion of more
amicable and progressive relations between in-
dustry and labor. While war crises offer oppor-
tunities for extending labor privileges and in-
creasing industry profits, it also gives the gov-
ernment sounder basis for enforcing agreement
between the two groups; and, when a soundly
constructed plan for the strengthening of such
an organization as the OPM is submitted, it
is to the advantage of the disinterested but
sorely affected public to demand its adoption.

Our Yesterdays .
10 Years Ago
February 1, 1931-The open season for flying
is on. Newspapers are being deluged with pic-
tures of aviators being nonchalant in front of
planes in which they hope to fly to Berlin or
Bagdad in a new record time, or to accomplish
some other publicity acquiring feat.

A Vigorous Protest
To the Editor:
We wish to indicate our vigorous protest to the
publication today of a front page story on the
,Lease-Lend" Bill poll of students by William
We feel that a poll of thirty students out of
12,000 on campus can hardly be called representa-
tive opinion or scientific polling in any degree.
Even though the story itself indicated) that only
thirty students were questioned, and thus the in-
dividual reader could judge for himself the accu-
racy of the poll, yet we believe that the head-
line, "Poll Reveals Students Favor Passage of
'Leave-Lend' Bill by 2-1 Margin" gives a false
Although we have general objections to the
publication of any story that is so scientifically
unreliable, we have an even further objection to
this particular story.
As chairman and executive secretary of the
Michigan Forum, sponsors of campus discussions
on controversial issues of moment, we have at-
tempted to be completely impartial in the selec-
tion of speakers, conduct of the discussion and
publication of the vote that is taken after every
discussion. A week ago Thursday we sponsored
a debate and discussion of the "Lease-Lend" Bill
and in the resulting vote there was a 6-to1
majority against the passage of the bill. The
results of the vote were not made public up to
this time because we felt that there were not a
sufficient number of students present at the
Forum and the group was not representative
enough to warrant the results of the poll being
published as an accurate reflection of student
We trust that The Daily in the future will con-
duct its polls along the accepted lines of adequate
sampling and sufficient number or refrain from
publication of such misleading articles.

Barons At Runnymede
To the Editor:
If any trace of patriotic Americanism remains
on this campus, the editorial page of the Daily
surely does not reflect it.Let's be done with this
talk of appeasement. Of all the spineless, cow-
ardly, ostrich-like attitudes of mind, the pacifist
junk which you dare to print on this page is the
very worst.
We all know that, sooner or later, we are going
to have to fight Hitler. Why not start getting
ready? If any doubting, timid souls still refuse
to look facts in the face, it is high time they were
put where they belong. Professor Schumann's
lecture last week made it quite clear that Amer-
ican Democracy and fascist tyranny cannot live
in the same world. It is a question of fight or die.
Nor can there be any doubt as to our decision.
Americans do not want their way of life to die.

capacity, we can and must accomplish this with-
in two or three years.
A few pacifist extremists have even suggested
Great Britain is to blame for America's reluc-
tance to come to her aid, alleging that she has
not stated :er war aims. This is an overcritical
demand to make upon' a nation fighting for its
(and our) very existence. As a matter of fact,
however, England's war aims were written long
ago, in a document known as the Magna Carta,
by the sturdy barons at Runneymede, to enlist
for all time the irresistible energy of free men
for imperishable glory. Surely, no sacrifice is too
great for the United States of America to make
in exchange for the supreme honor of coming
to the rescue of that immortal Island Kingdom
"in its grandest hour." Thomas P. Nessler
Town Meeting
To the Editor:
Determined that they shall not be caught nap-
ping again as in 1917, the young people of Amer-
ica are on the march once more to Washington.
A Town Meeting of Youth, to be held in the na-
tion's capitol February 7-10 will give expression
to the peace sentiments of students, workers,
farm youth and church groups from all over the
country. Supported by delegations from such
organizations as the YMCA, YWCA, the NAACP,
the youth councils of the CIO, and on the campus
by the Inter-Guild Council, several of the co-
operatives, the Wesley Foundation, etc., Town
Meeting will discuss in open session the follow-
ing objectives:
1. Keep America Out of War.
2. Protect the Welfare of Conscripts.
3. Win Jobs and Training for All Youth.
4. Defend Civil Liberties for All.
At a time when HR1776, the Lend-Lease Bill,
threatens to bring partial dictatorship and war
to the United States, American youth are called
upon to add their voices to the great wave of
indignation and protest. You can help. You
can lend a hand.
The Greater Detroit Youth Assembly has char-
tered busses for the round trip to Washington,
leaving Detroit February 6 and 7, returning Feb-
ruary 9 and 10. Accommodations have been
arranged to provide for the greatest comfort and
economy. A $20 budget has been set as a limit
for visitors and delegates. However, financial
aid, is available from the local Town Meeting. Get
in touch with Ruth Clark, phone number 6707,
and George Walters, phone number 7902, co-
chairmen of the local student council for a reser-
vation and further information.
Let us here highly resolve that American youth
be heard. Come to Town Meeting and speak out
for peace.

Spectator vs. Tatler
To The Editor:
Mr. Theodore Dreiser makes the following re-
markable statement in his latest book: "The
British Empire is not a democracy and never has
been and, in so far as its ruling classes are con-
cerned (and they are at the present the Empire),

rew Pe.rs
WASHINGTON-Most of the dis-
cussion at the President's con-
ference with congressional leaders on
the Aid-to-Britain bill hinged on two
amendments which he contended
had little, if any, meaning.
They were aimed to prohibit the
convoying of merchant ships by U.S
war vessels, and to require all lend-
lease transactions to be okayed by
the new super-defense agency, Office
of Production Management.
Biggest argument was over the
prohibition of convoys. Republican
floor leaders Charley McNary and
Joe Martin insisted on such an
amendment. Roosevelt argued that
it would be unnecessary and mean-
"The neutrality act prohibits
American vessels from entering re-
stricted war zones," he pointed out
in effect, "and I have no desire to'
repeal the neutrality act. However,
if you must put this window dressing
in the bill, I won't try to stop it."
The other amendment, sponsored
by isolationist Representative Hamil-
ton Fish of New York, would require1
the Office of Production Manage-
ment to approve the loan or lease of
all war supplies to Britain. And the
President flatly put his foot down
when Joe Martin suggested that it be
included in the bill.
Roosevelt contended that it would
retard speedy execution of the lend-
lease program when "speed is the
very essence of our attempts to help
Great Britain." Also he urged that
it would burden the OPM with ex-
traneous problems at a time when
all its efforts were needed to in-
crease production. Martin finally
agreed to a substitute, namely that
the President consult with the Army
Chief of Staff and the Chief of Naval
"That's perfectly satisfactory to
me," was Roosevelt's reaction. "I
would naturally do that anyway."
Hull Talks
When Secretary of State Hull ap-
peared in secret session before the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee,
he emphasized the belief that the fall
of Britain would have grave and
immediate repercussions in South
He warned that local Nazi-Fascist
parties would attempt to seize power
in at least half .a dozen countries,
probably resulting in civil war which
Hitler would exploit to the limit. And
where totalitarian regimes did suc-
ceed in gaining a foothold, Hull
pointed out that Hitler would im-
mediately establish bases for mili-
tary operation to strike at other parts
of Latin America and the United
Hull mentioned no names and was
not pressed for any. In fact, the
I two isolationist warriors present,
Nye of North Dakota and Clark of
Missouri, handled him with kid
gloves throughout the proceedings.
Hull was primed to meet their at-
tack head-on, but they didn't give
him a chance to work out on them.
Both senators were respectful and
circumspect in their questioning.
freedom, pray? Read again the list
of grievances of India as revealed in
Nehru's autobiography. Note the sim-
ilarities. "A Prince, whose character
is thus marked by every act which

may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be
the ruler of a free people." We said
that at one time. The Indian peo-
ple are saying it still. Perhaps that's
a parallel and not an identity, to
use "Spectator's" phraseology. Is
that any reason to doubt the validity
of the declaration?
But, says "Spectator," let's forgets
about Ireland and India, let's look
ht Canada, Australia, and New Zea-
land. O.K., but let's look at Egypt,
Palestine, Iraq, the Sudan, South
Africa, Hong Kong, the East Indies,
the West Indies, British Guiana, and
a few other assorted territories not
so blessed by the "parliamentary sys-
tem and Commonwealth policy," and
with no hope of being so blessed in
the future. I am one of those unfor-
tunate people "Spectator" describes
as having visited foreign countries
without understanding the truth. I
will never forget the shock that I
expei'ienced when I first saw the
thousands of crosses on Mt. Scopus
in Palestine, the graves of Australian
and New Zealand soldiers. I admit,
I don't understand the truth of the
matter. I don't know why it happened
or had to happen. But I do know
this: I don't want to see "Spectator"
or any other American boy lying in
such a place. I'll fight to defend my
own country any day of the week, but
not a blood-stained British Empire.
As for the people of England and
England's colonies, God bless and
help them. They have two enemies
to fight, Hitler without, and Hitler
