Campus Gets Dose
Of Bad Taste . . .
WELL, Ann Arbor can settle down to
the sweet and simple again. Having
had two glimpses of the better life at the State
Theatre opening and Zoot Suit Stuff, the campus
may once more resume the prosaic course of
everyday existence.
The gigantic pinball machine on S. State St.
has bowed in to the applause of a duly impressed
populace, a populace so dazed by a bare-faced,
multi-colored sign that it couldn't fight back.
Capacity crowds sat submissively through a
picture whose moments of vulgarity were ex-
ceeded only by the appointments of the theatre.
A Phineas T. Barnum ceiling that clashed with
every color in the interior-and there were
plenty of them-and carpets that were garish
in the extreme, combined to give the general
effect of an architect's opium pipe-dream.
Zoot Suit Stuff was an improvement only in
degree, not in kind.
Both were flagrant violations of good taste.
Criticism of such petty activities at this time
may seem trivial, but a nation's or a community's
aesthetic standards need not be lowered by cri-
sis, and there are things that can be wrong with-
out hindering the war effort.
The forces in humanity which inspire such
masterpieces as the State Theatre and Zoot
Suit Stuff will never inspire America to any-
thing, much less victory. We should have no use
or tolerance for them.
-hale Champion
Or'gaiized Giroups
Should 'Adopt' ITabfks . . .
SOO" lTFS, fraternities, and all
organized campus groups are being
urged to "adopt" babies, as the girls of Stockwell
Hall have just done, from the ranks of England's
orphaned and homeless, neglected and under-
privileged.
"Adoption," as proposed by the American
Save the Children Federation, branch of the
Geneva International Save the Children Union,
simply implies that money has been pledged
toward the maintainance of a blitz-baby, who
remains in England, guaranteed adequate food,
clothing, medical supplies, shelter and super-
vision.

This is another war charity, but one of radi-
cally different nature. ContribIutiolis to the SCF
organlization aid niot vague groups of foreign
needy, but individual children, whose names,
pictures and case histories are available to pros-
pective "godparents."
According to one adoption plan offered by
SCF, a contribution of $30, supplewnted by a
sum from the British government, will support
an English child in his own home for a 12-month
period.
'HE SECOND PLAN, adopted by the Stockwell
girls, provides sielter in country nursery.
homes for impressionable "under-fives," com-
plete with the supervision of nurses and child
psychologists. This retreat for war infants is a
more expensive proposition, but $120 will cover
expenditures for the year. This sum may be paid
in installments, and it is suggested by Mrs.
Edward W. Blakeman and Mrs. Preston W.

WASHINGTON-Here is some all-important
GOOD war news for a change.
The United States and the British Empire
have won a victory of supreme importance in
the crucial war production race.
For the first time in the 22 years of the war
Kellogg Grant Will Help
Finance Dental Students
N THE DAYS before Pearl Harbor
there was something of a belief that
an over-supply of physicians and dentists existed
in the United States. Today we are finally
awake to the stark reality that there is a short-
age of these vital individuals.
In peacetime there might have been a shortage
of patients able to pay for the services of doc-
tors and dentists, but in wartime such services
are obviously a sine qua non for the prosecution
of the conflict. Not only must the millions of
men in our armed forces be maintained in good
health and treated when they are injured, but
the many more on the home front must be kept
fit to maintain production and civilian morale.
Despite the need for these professional men, a
large number of prospective doctors and dentists
are kept from training for the professions by
the extraordinary financial cost of such train-
ing. Dental students, to cite an outstanding
example, must purchase their own instruments
and equipment at a cost of approximately $725.
THE W. K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION has
taken a step which must be highly com-
mended. It has moved to alleviate, partially at
least, the difficulties of these dental students,
by providing funds for the purchase of instru-
ments and equipment to be loaned out to them.
The need of dental students for instruments
is but a small part of the total picture. Medical
students have parallel needs, and both are hard
hit by the three-term plan which prevents them
from earning part of their expenses during the
summer recess.
This action on the part of the Kellogg Founda-
tion is an example of the type of aid which
must be given if our medical and dental schools
are to continue to turn out the men so neces-
sary to the health, well being and safety of the
nation. It should be copied not only by other
philanthropic foundations, but by state and fed-
eral governments as well.
- Herbert Edelhertz
National Labor Party
Must Be Formed * * *
UR CONGRESS holds long debates
about labor with some of the con-
gressmen boiling over with hate and others lov-
ingly hailing labor as the saviour of America.
But labor says nothing officially. It depends
on its lobbyists and its statements to the press.
It cannot help itself when a wave of "misinfor-
mation" envelops ordinarily moderate congress-
men and fans the more volatile men to white
heat.
Labor has been blackened. denounced, libeled,
defamed, all with no real opportunity for de-
fense. It cannot speak in the halls of Congress
as management speaks through its congressional
mouthpieces.
In the national crisis labor has been threat-
ened time after time. The Smith Bill, the Smith-
Vinson Bill, Thurman Arnold, all of them are
undermining labor in the, name of war.
ABOR, organized labor, unorganized labor,
needs a chance to defend itself. It needs a
chance to gain adequate consideration for its
progressive, intelligent programs like the Reu-
ther plan and the Murray plan.
The labor movement makes itself heard if at
all through the regular parties. But how hard
it is to find a man who will consider the weighty
problems which confront the movement and
present them fairly on the floor of Congress.
Where was there a c(hampion of the Reuther'
plan in Congress?
Political influence, pai'ly life, is wI at organ -
ized labor is crying for now. It's time that th i
representatives of labor answer the false harges
against it. We need labor's magnificent exposes
of ianagem'nts derelictions in producing war

goods.
Labor has consistently worked product ion for
victory. The labor movement opened the way to
better working conditions, shorter hours, the
social welfare.
But she cannot depend on isolationist members
of Congress to increase production. She cannot
ask poll tax congressmen to help collective bar-
gaining.
Now is the time for the formation of a na-
tonal labor party, a party that will present
teraive cadidaes to the regular parties at
the polls, a party mtIt will work with the present
progr'ssive ipublic officials,
r11HE badly needed labor party must be national
in scope, progressive in policy, clever in tac-
tics. It must be able to appeal to the great mass
of unorganized workers as well as organized
men. Its appeal must cut across class lines to
include effective numbers of voters.
The time for such a party is now. For now the
Republicans are splitting over the former isola-
tionist views. The Democrats are chafing at the
control exercised by Roosevelt.
A labor party could step into the breach with
a program supporting Roosevelt based on wide
social 'dppeals. The party could actively work in
Congress to increase production. It could put
the needed vigor into Congress.
--Leon Gordeker

the United States and Britain now are out-
producing the Axis and its vassal states in vital
arms and munitions.
Although the two Allies still are on the de-
fensive, henceforth Anglo-American war output
should pile up an ever-increasing margin of
armament superiority.
U. S. producing capacity in particular is just
beginning to swing into an all-out war scale.
The mighty auto industry, for example, is now
being furiously converted. Other major indus-
tries are undergoing the same transformation.
Also hundreds of new war plants are in various
stages of completion, with hundreds of others
being projected.
Sage old "Bernie" Baruch comments: "We
can't yet crack our heels together in celebra-
tion, even if things are better."
What he means is that there are still plenty
of sour spots.
Some of these are: labor supply, certain ob-
stacles in the flow of materials, shortage of ma-
terials, inadequate use of equipment, insufficient
subcontracting, red tape and bureaucratic ob-
struction, the incompetence, greed and lack
of initiative of many employers, the profit-
mindedness of dollar-a-year men.
But despite all these, U. S. industry every week
is pouring out a steadily soaring floodtide of
war supplies. On the basis of a private survey
made by the authors of this column, it can be
stated definitely that with the British Empire's
greatly accelerated production the two Allies
now are ahead of the Axis.
Note: The survey was limited on the Allied
side to the U. S. and British Empire because it
is impossible to get detailed information about
Russian production. This suffered heavily while
the Red Army was retreating but is reported to
have made a "miraculous" recovery.
How We're Doing
For obvious military reasons it isnot possible
to give details of the great Allied production
victory. But here is a general survey of how
we're doing:
Planes-Last month the combined U. S., Brit-
ish and Canadian total surpassed the maximum
estimated producing capacity of Italy, Japan,
Germany and her vassal states.
Tanks-The U. S.. Britain and Canada are
out-producing the Axis and satellite powers in
light and medium tanks, which also are superior
in many respects to those of the enemy.
Munitions-U. S. production is the greatest in
its history and without Great Britain is greater
than the combined total of Italy and Japan.
Steel-Here again production is the greatest
in U. S. history.
Ships-Far greater in every category than the
Axis, but still considerably below the tremendous
requirements of the world-wide conflict.
Domiic Nas
The week has not been one of inspiration and
reassurance. On campus the Spring Parley,
being too intellectual, lost to an all-out vote on
the best-dressed man. In the nation while labor
was lauding itself about a ninety-eight percent
record of no strikes and no delays for January
and February, their betters-so-called-were
campaigning in Washington to take away from
the laborers most of the legislative gains of fifty
years. In the war there were big headlines about
small gains. Here is a week adequate to intro-
duce the Passover.
Jews and Christians have a mission today
which promises to give religion such a recon-
sideration as it has not had in the United States
since the forties. There are three great services
which the religious of America must perform
just now:
First: "I have fought the good fight, I have
finished the course, I have kept the faith" (11
Tim. 4:6-81. We are at war. That means that
solidarity of the home front is doubly vital. As
religious persons each will contribute to the endl
in view and to the well-being of humanity when
he belittles difference and magnifies likeness.
Every party triviality should be played down.
Every secondary person to person preference
should be overlooked. Each religious person

should see God, enter into His charity, get His
perspective and live t he eternal life in time. This
is no simple order. Yet that is our primary func-
tion. Each of us can move his family, his campus
group, his daily partnership, his class in its reg-
ular session, and each table situation toward
understanding. To find the will of God, be seek-
ing that high purpose steadily and hold com-
niinion with truth is religiounIess.
Second: "Whatsocve wishes to be first among
you shall be of service to all" (Mark 10:41-44).
Nothing short of this type of communal life on
th -part of great multitudes will solidify this
people and enable us to parallel our allies in
paiticipation. Why should we not repent of the
caustic attitude we have had toward the descend-
ants of Tolstoy and establish in these United
States an ethics as Christian as that which is
being operated by our allies who thwart Hitler
in Russia?
'third: "Forgive us our trespasses as we for-
give those who trespass against us" (Luke 11:4).
When the various nations are lined against na-
tions, races set aginst other races, habits of
thought cut off from other cultures, and the
youth of the world are arrayed against each
other, it is essential that Easter be celebrated in
prayer. As Jesus hated the deed and the spirit
and the aim of the sinner but prayed in love for
