Ihternational Thought
Is Key To World Peace'

0.

W ITH OUR ARMIES on the defensive
and oerr slogan "We have not yet
begun to fight" more of a truism than is pleas-
ant to admit, it may seem soon to concern our-
selves with peace terms and post-war aims. But
it is- by no 'means too soon. The moment the
Japanese began their attack, the American
people formed an unalterable and unconquerable
# determination to fight to final triumph. How-
ever, unless we are prepared both rationally
and spiritually to make a just peace when war
ends, that peace will be as hollow and ethereal
as that of 1917. \
Nothing could be more gratifying than theg#
growing realization of -the public and the al-
ready apparent realization of our leaders of the
importance of such a peace. Roosevelt and
Churchill outlined basic post-war principles in
theif Atlantic Charta. More recently, Vice-
president Wallace expressed his views concern-
ing the economic aspect of peace and broadly
indicated the post-war role of the United States.
Nothing could be more evident than the fact
that our government recognizes the importance
of America's duty in the world when war ends.
flASIC in all planning is the international as-
pect of the peace. The United States has.
become the economic center of the world- and
what it has to -do in this position is oneof the
most perplexing problems facing our govern-
ment. The shift of economic power from Eng-
land to the United States, combined with the
changes in world economy, have created, an un-
precedented economic situation. One thing is
clear, however/vision of economic and political
isolationism must forever'be dispelled.
It should be clear in the minds of all men
that the- United States cannot stand alone in
the world unaffected by the other nations. We
are ai much a part of the world economic and
the world politic as any other nation, and our
action or inaction will make or destroy world
peace. Thomas Jefferson believed that the less
active government' was the better, but now we
know that government can act for the good of
the people. And although we, too, until re-
cently, feared international action as the sure
road to war, it is now evident that international
coopgration is the only path to lasting peace.
WALILACE has emphasized that only the
United States will be able to supply the
capital so much needed when war ends. Only.
with our full support can any ,world federation
plan succeed. When peace comes, the deciding
factors of lasting peace will be the action of the
American people.
We must begin now to prepare ourselves for
peace. International thinking must supplant
our present selfish nationalistic views. Above
all we must guard against the thwarting of the
peace plans of our leaders through withdrawal
of our support at the last moment, guard against
repeating that disgraceful episode at the end of
World War I.
As our vice-presiderdt has stated with deep
conviction, world peace depends upon the ac-
tion of the American people and we must do
everything in our power to make that action a
real force for good in the world.
-John Erlewine

The RepIy Chauriish
by TOUCHSTONE
AFTER GOING QUITE AWHILE without a
bath - it was too cold - I went swimming
at the Union the other night. Did four lengths
with only brief pauses to hit the side of my head
and get the water out of my ears. Several of us
waiting around the check room while the girls
dried their hair, wishing the girls had p pool
all their own and would go swim in it. But it
keeps their minds occupied with healthy pur-
suits, and there are still a few people left who
want to keep girls minds occupied with healthy
pursuits.
When the WAA lady left, we went in and turn-
ed on the steam in the steam room and undress-
ed. There were two swimming team boys there
with nice coats of tan, which made the rest of
us a little subdued as befitting our amateur
standing. They'were nice guys, and one of them
swam very well and was still going strong up
and down the pool when I left. The other one
disappeared. I don't think he liked the diving
board.
I washed my hair. It has dandruff, and though
the Union soap is not the best shampoo for'it,
I save several hours of my time by washing my
hair, because thn I do not scratch my head so
much, and am able-except for smoking, clean-
ing my fingernails, sharpening my -pencils,
straightening my desk, talking to the boys in
the front room, going but for some coffee to
wake me up so I'll really get at the books, sitting
and thinking, and just plain sitting - to get
a lot more work-done. When I went in to swim,
the water- was not as cold as I had thought
it would be. That was nice, because usually I
get much colder than necessary by not diving in
right away for fear my heart will stop or I will
have a cramp, but instead I climb down the
ladder like a deep sea diver does, step by step,
and every step it gts colder, until I fall off, or
count to 'ten a few times and duck my head.
THEN I WENT OVER - after dressing of
course - ,to the coffee shop where I always
go, because I do not like the brown water they
call coffee at the Union. I sat and had a cup
of coffee, which the menu writer praised along
with other items like cream and butter and
quality in food which do not -perhaps live up to
their panegyrics, and talked to some actors who
live there. They are in a play.
I played the drums on the table for Awhile
until nobody bad any more nickels for the
juke, and between times and whenever I thought
about it, I looked at a girl. Then I started home,
but got sidetracked over here at the office,
looking for somebody to pester or hit, because
I felt frisky, and when frisky, enjoy - cruel -
hitting my friends. Two of them said lay off
would I and come on over to get some food.
I saidl no, I was going home to bed, I had been
swimming.
THE GIRL WAS STILL THERE. I said I didn't
think I'd better have any more coffee -
keeps me awake - but on second thought there
wasn't anything else to drink except milk or a
coke. We sat and looked at the girl and talked
about Symphonie Fantastique and the way peo-
ple behave - several of them by name - and
women and how much chance an artilleryman
has of gettifig any sort of medal except the
Purple Heart, and listen to the words of He
Said No will you, and about then the girl left and
we sat there wearing a knitted stocking hat
which belongs to- Al, the head night counter
man at the place, who doesn't understand double
talk. We wore that hat one at a time. It looks
very Gaspe Peninsula, or Newfoundland Banks
on Rhett, and like the Black Watchon Gunner,
and like I had just washed my hair on me.
About midnight we went our ways with jolly
cries, one to the other, and I went home and
called Detroit because my girl's birthday is to-
day, the tenth, and then I got in bed and read
E. B. White in Harpers, which will explain much
to those of you who also read 1. B. White. So
long until soon.

First University
Sacrifice
HE- UNIVERSITY OP MICHIGAN
,jhas given of her own.
Lt. Gorge H. Cannon, '38E, died on the night
of December 7 while his outnumbered detach-
ment of United States Marines was staving off
a Japanese surprise raid on Midway Island. Yes-
terday tl.e War Department informed his mo-
ther, Mrs. B, B. Cannon, III, of Ann Arbor, he
was "killed in action."
Probably ;the first University man to die in
America's defense against the "dastardly at-
tack," Lt. Cannon had been mortally wounded
at his battle-station by enemy shell-fire. He
refused toleave his-command until his injured
men -had been evacuated to safety.
Lt. Cannon's record, both in the service and
as a University student, was of the highest rank.
A member of Scabbard and Blade, ROTC honor
society, he was appointed to the Marine Corps
in 1938. 'From basic training in Philadelphia to
his last assignment on Midway, Lt. Cannon
earned the esteem of both his fellow officers
and his men.
BUT the death of Lt. Cannon is not a severe
blow to the Marine Corps alone. The roll of
University alumni can ill afford the loss of a
man willing to join America's battle uncondi-
tionally-his own life no exception.
In Ann Arbor's University community there
must be growing today a firm conviction that
such men as Lt. George Cannon are the true
symbols of a wartime America. Whether in de-
fense plant or patrol bomber, the spirit of his
unselfish loyalty will stand as an ultimate exam-
ple of a free man striving to maintain the birth-

WASHINGTON-Behind the 'scenes, the big
question churning official Washington is
when and what the President intends to do about
the most pressing war problem facing the coun-
try-reorganization of his bumbling and headless
war supplies machine.
Tere is no doubt he is most emphatically
aware of the problem. His own inner circle ad-
-visers have been pulling their hair about it for
months. Also, visiting British leaders tactfully
but pointedly told him about it. Further, he him-
self has voiced privately his sharp disappoint-
ment over. production schedules, and last weel
he publicly announced that there must be a tre-
mendous increase in both the rate and volume
of output to win the war.
Yet, despite all this, the President still has not
made a concrete move to clean up the soggy
administrative muddle.
He has been talking about doing so. Only as
recently as a week ago, he assured an old friend,
who has long urged a drastic reorganization, that
it was coming. But the inside word still is that
the President has not yet made up his mind.
Meanwhile, as the flames of war daily spread
further and more fiercely, the vital production
machinery of the government bumps erratically
along in a welter of confusion and Dollar-A-
Year men.
Minister Of Supply
THERE is a wide variance of view in the inner
councils over the form the reorganization
should take.
The procurement chiefs of the Army and Navy,
strongly supported by Bernard Baruch, wise old
head of the 'World War I Industries Board, are
urging that control over supplies be turned ovel
to them, with OPM and the other civilian agen-
cies functioning as subordinate auxiliaries.
But cabinet and inner circle sentiment is
strongly against this, on two counts: 1st, that
supply is an industrial and henc a civilian prob-
lem to be handled by civilians; 2nd, that the
function of the Army and Navy is to fight and
they have plenty of that to do without taking
up war production.
Non-military advisers want the President to
set up a Ministry-of Supply headed by a single
executive, like Lord Beaverbrook, whose job
would be to see to it that the Army and Navy
got all the arms and munitions they need, and
when they need 'them.

4BOUT THE BEST that can be said for Separ-
ate Rooms at the Michigan last night is that
as it got broader it got funnier. It got quite
broad, and fairly funny. But as a play, it
stank. Some first class mugging by Mr. Dine-
hart held together an anarchistic set of gag lines
from which the first fine fuzz of youth has been
worn a little, and when the cast began to slap-

stick it a bit during the latter part of the second
act all- the production needed was a plot and a
de-hammer to make it something that even the
inscrutable Horatio Alger might well have been
proud of.
Apparently the method of composing Separate
Rooms was the popular Hollywood conference
system, with the four authors working hard-al-
most too hard, for some real gags, but something
the corn belt will get, with a nudge and a wink.
We got them.
Contrary to the advance billing, there are not
three hundred laughs in the play. But does it
really matter? There are quite a few, and that's
what people like, and the producers know it. I
have not in- quite some time seen a play as
openly and deliberately aimed right at the ten-
twent'-thirty trade rathet than the possible four-
forty top of the Big City.
WELL, ENOUGH for that for now. I append
here a note which appears at the bottom of
the program to the effect that Separate Rooms
is controlled by Thanks For My Wife, Inc.,
Hollywood, Calif.. I do not know what this
means, unless there were more collaborators, or
a group of public spirited citizens thought they
had better give the boys a rest, and bought
stock.
The acting of the piece was of that indefinite
nature, neither good nor bad, which I am fin-
ally coming to expect of our better and more
notorious performers when they tour the prov-
inces. I have mentioned that Mr. Dinehart did
much to hold the production together and keep
it moving. He accomplished this work by some
pretty corny, but always successful devices, in-
cluding a laugh, a leer, and a quick delivery. Mr.
Talbot did nicely in his role, which apparently
was written to fit Mr. Talbot. Kirk Brown, as
