A Plan For Peace
In The Americas . .
NEWSPAPERS and press associations
labeled it "a gigantic war produc-
tion plan for the Western Hemisphere," but it
can easily develop into a gigantic peace plan,
'not only for this hemisphere but for the whole
world. According to the Associated Press, a plan
for the all-out war effort of this hemisphere was
revealed by- an official of the Department of
Commerce on Wednesday. It calls for relaxa-
tion of all tariffs, introduction of an interna-
tional exchange currency, a special labor pro-
gram, pooling of shipping, nationalization of all
airlines in South America, a guarantee of vital
exports from this country to South America, a
statistical union, and American financing of
war projects and new port facilities in the
Obviously, the plan is intended as an emer-
gency measure to strengthen the nations fight-
ing Hitler. It contains, however, some of the
prerequisites for a lasting world peace. Cer-
tainly if it proves successful as a war plan and
if, as reported, other nations outside of the'
Western Hemisphere enter into the agreements,
it must be considered as a possibility for the
post-war settlement.
Perhaps discussion about peace terms is pre-
mature, but it should be remembered that all
the nations of the world will expect a concrete
peace plan from the Allies as soon as victory is
won. This plan cannot be merely a temporary
solution of the world's ills. It must offer a last-
ing guarantee.
ONE of the greatest stumbling blocks to any
such final readjustment is the economic
barrier with its competitive economies and its
tariff wars. The elimination of tariffs and the
facilitating of international exchange, as the
reported plan proposes to do, would go a long
way toward conquering that barrier.
It seems likely, now that Argentina has appar-
ently agreed to cooperate with her sister repub-
lics, that the Pan-American Conference will
adopt this proposal when it is offered. Such an
action will be revolutionary'in world history. Nev-
er before has any group of nations determined
upon cooperation to any like degree.- It will
shine through the darkness to promise the op-
pressed and hapless peoples of the world that
something is going to come out of this war
after all.
The hemispheric plan has brought the hazy
generalities of "world federation" and "world
unity" down to reality. No doubt such a far-
seeing idealist as President Roosevelt sees the
potentialities of these proposals. He can prob-
ably visualize the day in the not-too-distant
future when similar agreements will link all
nations. The Western Hemisphere war plan
represents a great step toward a lasting world
peace plan.
- George W. Sallade
Germany's Mineral Resources
Some long-cherished American illusions about
our own natural supremacy and the compara-
tive poverty of our have-not adversary, Ger-
many, were dashed by a report, made public
recently, of the Federal Bureau of Mines.
The Reich, it finds, is "surprisingly well sup-

World Federation
And Post-War America.
"THE 'THIRTIES' will go down in history as
a decade in which people were afraid to act."
In a recent lecture here, Dr. Gregory Vlastos,
noted professor of philosophy, made the fore-
going statement. According to Dr. Vlastos, the
Chamberlains, the Lavals, the Daladiers were
representatives of a people who did not act be-
cause they had no faith in their ideal-democ-
All this brings to mind the question, "What's
going to happen after the war?" What we ask
now is: are we going to say after the war, "Brrr
it was a nasty dose. We're glad that's over,"
and then settle back comfortably into our own
red, white and blue rut? Or are we going to
remember the murderous trick that was played
on us by our elders, our elders who sneer at the
'younger generation'? Are we going to remem-
ber the bitter lesson of the twenties?
We think every Aherican should start think-
ing now about the peace. For one thing, we
realize that the United States can never again
hope to be an independent nation. If there is
to be any sort of real world federation after the
war, we must be a part of it; and to be a part
of it, means that we must be prepared to give
up some degree of our independence.
Inevitably this suggestion brings down many
cries that we must maintain our own rock-
ribbed American spirit of Americanism. But
just what is this spirit of Americanism? To us,
it is nothing more than democracy. And if we
are to have any faith in our own ideal, if we
are to have the courage of our convictions, we
must be prepared to share democracy. We must
be prepared to subordinate ourselves to the
whole. This is world democracy.
Many people look upon Europe with suspicion
and talk vaguely of the new world. But after
all, who do we think we are? We're not God's
chosen people. We're simply fortunates who
have had some of the advantages of democracy.
After the Revolutionary War, the thirteen states
formed a union with very little that bound them
except a common enemy. We have that now.
In all events, we must shake off this indiffer-
ence of the thirties. We cannot be, as Lillian
Hellman says in "The Little Foxes," 'people who
stand around and watch.'

>. * Why Not Die?
It's Cheaper
ANYBODY who has about $350 in cash can
make himself a cool half million in Ann
All he has to do is rent one of those old dingy
deserted houses with broken windows, that you
see at regular intervals in this town, buy some
second-hand iceboxes down at Claude Brown's,
collEt the flimsiest excuses for beds (any old
pallet will do) and rent out apartments at $50
to $100 each (plus utilities) depending whether
they are one or two rooms.
A real estate agent told me today that. (I
quote) "In all my 20 years experience in Ann
Arbor, this has absolutely been the worst as far
as getting apartments is concerned."
The reason I know about this is because I'm
trying to find an apartment-without bugs,
please. I've been answering the ads in the pa-
per, but I find that you have to answer the
minute the paper comes off the press (I go
down to Huron Street and get the first one
printed in the afternoon). I answered an ad
(Three rooms, plus utilities, no stove, near cam-
pus) at about 6:30 one night and found that 80
people had seen the apartment ahead of me.
It seems that the bomber plan at Ypsi is one
of the contributing complications, as the men
are overflowing into Ann Arbor to look for
living quarters. In fact, one smart Ann Arbor
landlady (I can think of a much less printable
synonym) has four Ypsi men sleeping in one

room for $10 each per month!
A POINTER when looking for an apartment-
Studio couches have two sides-a soft one
and a hard one. Feel both sides before you say
to the landlord: "Here's $75 for the first week's
rent-how many miles is it to campus?"
When you finally do take an apartment, the
landlord usually gives you the following spiel:
"The bathroom is two floors up and it's only
shared by seven other families; the garbage is
collected every October; the kitchen window is
broken, so keep the shade down; this stove
doesn't come with the apartment; there is an
extra fee of $2..50 per month for electricity;
there are no closets but you may put your
clothes in the cellar; if you have trouble getting
your radio to work wait till the doctor down-
stairs turns off his X-ray machine; you'll find
that the living room doesn't heat up, so you can
just stay- in the kitchen when it gets cold; now.
if you'll just sign this three-year lease -"
And brother, you better sign and sign quickly,
if you don't want to live, in the gutter. No use
complaining, because they can always get some
other tenants.
Why, I understand that the gopher-holes in
the Arboretum are renting for $27.50 a month.
ONE local apartment house has an ad in the
paper saying, "1, 2 and 3 room apartments.
Waiting list only." I inquired how long I would
have to wait to get a 2-room apartment.
The manager scratched his head. "Wal," he
said, "we have a waiting list of 175 people who
are waiting to get on the waiting list."
"And how many people are on the actual

WASHINGTON-Five men and one woman had
secret undercover hands in John L. Lewis'
bombshell proposal that the AFL and CIO reopen
the peace negotiations that he broke off two
years ago. They were:
William Hutcheson, Roosevelt-hating, vet-
eran head of the AFL carpenters.
George Meany, bulky AFL secretary-treas-
urer, who is ambitious to become head of
the AFL, or a combined labor organization,
and is willing to play ball with Lewis to
attain this goal.
Daniel Tobin, AFL teamster boss, a sincere
advocate of AFL-CIO peace.
Dr. John Steelman, director of the U. S.
Conciliation Service, who is on close terms
with Lewis. It was Steelman who awarded
Lewis the closed-shop in captive mines last
month and a year ago supported him in his
knockdown fight wxith commercial coal oper-
Secretary Frances Perkins, who has made
such a howling botch as head of the Labor
Department that she is frantically anxious
to chalk up some spectacular achievement
and sees an AFL-CIO agreement as offering
that chance.
Senator Burton K. Wheeler, America First
champion and intimate political pal of
OF THE SIX, Hutcheson had the biggest hand
in Lewis's surprise move. A few years ago
the two men were fierce enemies, after exchang-
ing blows at a CIO convention. But they were
reunited in 1940 by their mutual hatred of
After Lewis's sensational bolt-to-Willkie broad-
cast, Hutcheson wrote Lewis a hurrahing con-
gratulatory letter. Later they held several secret
pow-wows that aroused conjecture in inner labor
circles. Two days before Lewis sprang his peace
scheme, he and Hutcheson had another secret
The day after this meeting, Hutcheson, at-
tending a session of the AFL executive council,
had himself made a member of the AFL's peace
committee, which had been inactive for two
years. Also, when Lewis' letter was delivered
to AFL president William Green at the Satur-
day afternoon meeting of the council, Hutcheson
hastily departed, saying he couldn't wait to dis-
cuss the proposal as he had to catch a tarin
Through With CIO
BEHIND Lewis's sudden passion for AFL-CIO
peace are two things: (1) He is through with
the CIO. (2) He is out to purge from organized
labor ranks the Commy-fellow-traveller elements
who not so long ago were his closest allies and
the backbone of his strength in the CIO.
Lewis washed his hands of the CIO after its
recent annual convention. In 1940 the CIO
slapped him down when the rank-and-file re-
fused to follow his demand that they desert
Roosevelt and vote for Willkie. Lewis swallowed
this rebuff, but he didn't forgive it. When the
1941 CIO convention again cuffed him resound-
ingly by repudiating his isolationism, he decided
to find newer and greener fields for his burning
personal ambitions.
In the CIO the prospects were that he would
remain a minority voice. But if he could put
over an AFL-CIO unification, Lewis would again
become a mighty "king maker," with the strong
possibility that in a few years he might make
himself the big boss of the combined organiza-
tion. Or Secretary of Labor. Or Vice President
of the United States-his great secret ambition.
Lucky Absence

IT WAS INEVITABLE that the money issue
would pop up at the Dies committee's closed-
door hearings on fascist and anti-racial activi-
ties, for most of the witnesses were supporters of
Father Coughlin, clamorous crusader against
"international bankers."
However, Representative Jerry Voorhis of Cal-
ifornia, member of the committee, is glad he
was absent when the question finally did come
up. It was injected explosively by an official
of the National Workers' League, a Detroit group
which has been disseminating anti-Semitic lit-
erature and propaganda against the President's
defense policies.
While being questioned, the witness suddenly
began waving his arms wildly and shouted:
"You fellows ought to go after the interna-
tional bankers. They're the real enemies of the
country. We've got to change our money system
and substitute direct credit if we want to solve
our economic problems. Unless we reform the
money system . ..
SUDDENLY the witness stopped, swept the
comittee table with a pointed finger, and
without lowering his voice, inquired, "Which
one of you is Congressman Voorhis?".
There was a loud howl of laughter at this
attempt to put Voorhis on the spot. Luckily for
the Californian, a leading congressional advo-
cate of monetary reform who indignantly re-
jects the support of Coughlinite elements, he
was attending another committee meeting.

He scratched his head again. "We limit the
