story Must Not Bring
erman Punishment .V
O" VER THE WEEKEND Uncle Joe
Stalin and friend Winston Churchill
re made some startling remarks. The crux of
se strange' statements seems to be .that the
'eat of Nazi domination of the world is past,
I that all that is required now is the watchful
iting of the Allies and their suppliers.
?eculiar indeed sound such words coming from
man who promised Britain only blood, sweat,
I tears for years to come; more peculiar still
they sound in the mouth which one day 'ear-
this week pleaded for the opening of a
tern front.
3ut if one can believe that the salvation of the
rld is just around the corner, if one can accept
week's statements at their face value; then,
'haps, we are ready to begin what should
re begun long ago, the study of post-war re-
.struction with particular emphasis on the
blem of Germany.
'his question of what to do with the trouled
I troublesome nation that is and has been
'many is extremely complex, fdr not just one
ition will settle that nation's problems There
st be an economi as wvell as a political an-
fr; there must be a social, as well as a racial
wer; and there' must be a humane, as well
a practical answer.
UTRING THE PAST YEAR many amazing
proposals have been designed to solve the
'd's problems in respect to Germany, but very
designed to solve Germany's own problems.
ome such proposals as were made last week
Ann Arbor by Professor Earnest A. Hooton
ious Harvard anthropologist, have received
espread attention and some favorable com-
it. These proposals unfortunately almost as
ody incorporate some fearful punishment of
ace which these scholars prefer to call his-
cally militaristic, stupidly acquiescent, and
rly race-conscious.y
hile itis true that th German history is
a pleasant one to read, it is also true that
internal problems were not pleasant ones to
. As a misfit in the world, it is no more at
t than is the delinquent child who through
attempt to solve his problem outside the ac-
ed formulas finds himself in constant trou-
THROW UPOU IJANDS in'horror when
we hear of the harsh treatment of such a
d, and yet there are some among us who
Id throw up their hands in glee if a vic-
ous Allied force did all within its power to
h forever not only the false in Germany,
everything in Germany gpod or bad.
heir prescriptions of mass elimination, steril-
on, or segregation are enough alone to dis-
Lit their suggestions; in such prescriptions
find the world's problems partially solved,
only at the expense of humanity.
f course, it is possible to make the same kind
xpedient, nationalistic peace we made at the
of World War I, but by our very experience
inst reject that. Certainly, no one believes
even if the Versailles treaty had been vigor-
y administered it would have been the instru-
t for peace in our time.,
o, instead of blaming a nation whose symp-
s and resulting troubles are a trifle worse
n the rest of the world's, we must make the
tion of Germany's problem a B3art of a solu-
which will cause the world-which allowed

'Semper FideliA
For 166 Years .
T OMORROW the United States Ma-
rine Corps, almost as old as the
United States, will celebrate its 166th birthday.
In the 166 years since 1775, United States Ma-
rines have seen service in every quarter of the
globe, and their fighting career has extended
over periods of both national peace, and flaming
war. In every case the Marines have given a
splendid account of themselves.
THE TASKS of these "soldiers of the sea" are
to maintain a mobile land force in immediate
readiness as a part of the United States Fleet
for use in ,operations involving shore- objec-
tives, to maiitain Marine Detachments as a part
of the ship's crew on cruisers, aircraft carriers
and battleships, to provide garrisons for the
safeguarding of navy yards and naval stations,
and to provide forces for the protection of
Amnerican lives and property abroad.
The leather stocks which gave them the name
"Leathernecks" have disappeared, but "Leather-
necks" they remain, proudly singing their Ma-
rine hymn when the occasion calls for it-and
sometimes singing that other Marine solg with
the taunt of that other and more numerous end
of the Navy: "Ten thousand gobs laid down
their swabs, to lick one sick Marine."
BUT even the gobs, as we as the soldiers of
the Army, and 130 million civilians who know
of the exploits of the Marines and are as proud
of them as are the Marines themselves, join
this month in sincere anniversary greetings to
the Marines, whose 166 years are experience,
not age. They are still ready, willing and able
to carry on the Marine tradition, and to add
bright new pages to the glorious history that
is theirs.

AUTHORITIES aren't advertising it but the
rise of U.S. prices is playing hob with the
carefully nurtured Good Neighbor policy.
U.S. consular and commercial agents in Latin
America are reporting numerous complaints
from buyers at skyrocketing prices. Also, Nazi
agents, taking advantage of the situation to
spread hostile propaganda, are claiming that
the United States, having driven ont competi-
tots, nor is profiteering at the expense of South
Ameripans.
W HILE some of the price raising is justified
because of mounting production costs, there
are also enough instances of . profiteering. to
give grounds for such an accusation. For ex-
ample:
Ammonium sulphate, an essential in the man-
ufacture of fertilizer, is selling in the U.S. at
$28 a ton. But the Commerce Department has
records showing export sales at $40 and over
a ton.
Formaldehyde, axlother vital chemical, is also
a product on which' there has been gouging of
Latin American customers. Last July, Price
Administrator Henderson set a ceiling of six
cents a pound in carload lots. But four South
American buyers recently were billed at 31 cents
a pound for the chemical.
NAZI AGENTS, who seem to be well informed
about U.S. domestic prices, have been mak-
ing a great ado about these and other cases,
filling the South American airways with bitter
attacks on "Yankee greed" at the expense of
their trusting neighbors.
Disturbed by the situation, both Henderson
and the Export Control Bureau, under Vice
President Wallace, are taking steps to stop the
gouging. Henderson's price powers apply equally
to goods destined for export as well as those for

domestic markets. So far he has issued very
few ceiling orders on foreign sales, but a lot
more will be forthcoming.f
WALLACE'S AGENCY and the Commerce De-
partment have an even more potent club in
their power to refuse export licenses. This has
been done in several cases already and others
will follow if profiteering persists.
Note-In taking vigorous measures against
profiteers in the U.S. authorities have informed
Latin American exporters that they expect the
same cooperation from them. Because of the
high shipping cost of Far Eastern tung oil and
cork, U.S. buyers have turned to South Ameri-
can substitutes, b'yt lately their prices have
been doing some fancy soaring.

To the Editor:
In your article today you state that some Ann
Arbor restaurants justify the increase in the
price of meals mainly by increased food prices.
The wholesale prices quoted are in every case
greater than the retail prices I have paid within
the last week, as is shown below.

RECORDS'
Kalinnikov, Symphony No 1 -
Mtart Horn Concerto
KALINNIKOV: Symphony No. 1, in G minor.
Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Fabien
Sevitzky, Conductor (Victor album M-827).
The name of Kalinnikov represents a defi-
nitely minor composer in the history of musical
literature. A Russian, born 1866, died 35 years
later' in 1901, considered a failure-that's all
that's generally known of him.
And it's true that most of his works lacked
structural skill, musical precision-and what is
more important-the spark or genius or what-
ever it is, that we call inspiration. That spark
is definitely present, however, in his Symphony
No. 1.
Veinus states, "Greater reputations than Ka-
linnikov's have been achieved on the basis of
music less substantial than his first symphony."
And it is tragic that because a man is con-
sidered a failure, his few really good composi-
tions are usually allowed to smoulder in the
grave with him.
The music of the first symphony is unmis-
takably Russian, and as Rosa Newmarch has
said, "a spirited work, full of fresh and healthy
inspiration . . ." Its themes are clear and pre-
cise; it is an easily understood symphony, some-
what like Tschaikowsky, yet at the same time
much deeper.
Something must be said for the Victor re-
cording' of this symphony. It has not been pre-
viously recorded, although it is in the repertory
of the Boston and Philadelphia orchestras. Fab-
ien Sevitzky seems to have had a perfect under-
standing of the music and the Indianapolis
Symphony gives a precise and technically skill-
ful performance. The conductor seems to have
excellent control of dynamics. However, this
reviewer does not know how faithful the inter-
pretation was, as the music is unfamiliar. The
recording is a welcome addition to the world's
library of great recorded music.
MOZART: Concerto No. 3 in E Flat major for
Horn and Orchestra (K.447). Aubrey Brain
and The BBC Symphony Orchestra, Sir Adrian
Boult, Conductor (Victor album M-829).
This is a rarely performed, but none the less
popular work, which is usually placed in the
latest period of Mozart's creative career. Its
themes are full of romantic loveliness. There
is little to say about Aubrey Brain as the horn
soloist, although it is possible that he may have
taken liberties with the solo part.
Nevertheless the entire work, including the
BBC Symphony's performance, is delightful and
a composition which we are not very liable to
hear in the concert halls; the main medium for
virtuosity such as Mr. Brain's is the phonograph
record. This two-record album of a much-re-
quested concerto is bound to be a popular suc-
cess.s
VICTOR'S best single vocal record for the
month of November is. Jussi Bjoerling's ren-
dition of "M'Appari" from Flotow's "Martha,"
coupled with "Salut, demeure" from Faust. Mr.
Bjoerling's tenor adapts itself to these selections
in the operatic tradition which demands the
amazing flexibility, color and beauty of tone
which is his, but with subtle nuances and a
grace which gives these old favorites new life
and beauty. D. L.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

GRIN AND BEAR IT

Ilonine Says
WHEN is one getting an education in religion?
~Is reading of the Bible a religious education?,
Partly, perhaps. Is faithful membership in a
worship group and conformity to some church
rit al without adopting the ethics of that faith
a religious education? A partial one. Then, am
I getting a religious education when I study be-
havior, understand ethics, and can conform to
observable reactions within the group with which
I am familiar but cannot reach out to ideals
beyond the group? Or is religious education go-
ing on, whether we are Jewish or Christian, in
the sense that America is a "Christian country?"
No, this too is but a partial religious education.
In all of these partial cases we see the reason
why Christianity is being repudiated by many
of the most thoughtful men of our age. When
every city and village in our nation has its
zhurch or churches and when thesacrificial few
like the saintly priest in "Keys of the Kingdom,"
lemonstrate genuine religious leadership in many
places, why -is the church no more meaningful?.
When, as knowledge, the challenging character
of Jesus lives among our children as well as
among their parents, why is the progress of
honesty, sincerity, and mutual confidence so
slow?
IT HE GREAT TRAGEDIES are written as a
reply. Our criminal statutes are here as an
answer. The history of wars illustrates man's'
potential brutality t when k established contrdIs
are relaxed. The recent depression in a time of
peace shows how deliberate sins are possible to
relatively cultured men. Religion involves a love,
for ,od, adoption of both Godlike attitudes and
acts as well as renewal at an altar. "The flesh
lusteth against the spirit" said the apostle (in
Gal V). That is, this matter of living a good
life and of eventually creating a good society is
a life and death struggle and none of us can
contribute to that religious struggle in a posi-
tive fashion by investing our spare moments or
the incidental happenings. It is only as one sets
his affection on God, the configuration of all
that is ideal, sees God as the great lover of man,
and drives will all the energy of his being toward
holiness of aspiration, word and deed that one
