'Equality Of Sacrifice'
Will Lead To Victory .. .
N MARKED CONTRAST to the sales
tax'solution" proposed by the Na-
tional Association of Manufacturers, the "victory
program" of the United Automobile Workers is
sound economics and has the stuff to win an
all-out war.
Its keynote is "equality of sacrifice" and
certainly a war for democracy must be fought
on that basis. Its provisions do not dilly-
dally; they are loaded with the sense, the scope
and the vigor that will win the battles of in-
flation, of production, of morale and of the
post-war period. And it establishes this vital
principle: "The efforts of all men and women
shall be judged by their contributions to the
war effort."
In announcing its program, the UAW demon-
strated its adherence to this principle for the
duration by:
1. Foregoing all demands and contractual'
rights for double pay for Sundays and holidays
and time and a half for Saturday.
2. Reaffirming its pledge to refrain from
strikes or other stoppages of work and to resort
to mediation, conciliation and arbitration for
the adjustment of disputes.
3. Committing itself to the increase of pro-
duction of all war materials to the utmost by all
means available.
4. Approving establishment of an appropriate
"swing shift" work schedule after all normal
shifts have first been fully manned.
With the realistic and comprehensive program
itself, little disagreement will be found among
competent economists. They, with the backing
of the people, will endorse its provisions, drastic
though they may seem. The program would do
these things:
1. End all war profiteering by establishing a
rigid control of profits. Considerable difficulty
may be encountered in computing the actual
capital invested, from which the firm would be
allowed only a three percent profit, but an
equitable plan can certainly be worked out.
2. Assure the United States that there will be
no wartime luxuries and no post-war million-
aires by legislation permitting an income of no
more than $25,000 a year. The first two provi-
sions will meet with tremendous opposition.
That is to be expected. But there is an unassail-
able reply.
The war must be paid for, consumption must
be cut, inflation must be stopped. Nothing
that can be said by anyone protesting an in-
come cut to $25,000 can he deemed important
in the light of these fundamental consider-
ations and the basic tenet: "equality of sacri-
fice."
g. Stop rising costs; prevent inflation by an
immediate, rigid fixing of prices of food, rent,
clothing and other necessities of life. But wages
must also be fixed if the inflation is to be hit
hard.
4. Ration all food, clothing, housing and other
necessities. Economists are agreed that ration-
ing is a necessary adjunct to price control-and
the war economy as a whole-if equity is to be
attained.
5. Adjust all wages to meet increased living
costs. While Ghe UAW wants all real wages ad-
justed to last year's level, we are not at all cer-

(Editor's Note: This is the second of a
series on the crucial U.,S. shipping situation.)
WASHINGTON-There tire two major phases
to the U. S. shipping picture, currently the sour-
est spot in the war program.
One, discussed two days ago in this column, is
the problem of speeding the production of hun-
dreds of desperately needed cargo vessels. As
revealed in that article, this vast program is
being seriously hampered by waste, inefficiency
and pilfering of public funds and materials.
The other phase is the equally vital job of
loading and routing the great fleet of merchant
ships needed to supply the embattled war ma-
chines of the United Nations. Here too the
story is often the same- mismanagement, tragic
waste and worse.
The picture is not all black. As in the case of
shipbuilding, the situation on the West Coast
now is very good-thanks to recent marked im-
provement due to the appointment of a regional
shipping czar, Dean Wayne Morse of Oregon
Stdentk Saiee
For War Effort .,.
ERHAPS University students are
- complacent about the war, Perhaps
tley are living in their "ivory towers." But at
least a few of them are coming to realize the
seriousness of the war and are willing to make
some sacrifices for its successful proscution
and to ease its aftereffects.
This week the local chapter of 4Kappa Kappa
Gamma, national university women's sorority,
illustrated what should be a new "war spirit"
for all campus organizations and students gen-
erally. The Kappas have decided to forego their
usual spring formal with an orchestra and sub-
stitute a record dance, donating the money saved
to the Bomber-Scholarship Fund.
While this contribution will not be the largest
one received, it represents the element of sacri-
fice for which the Bomber-Scholarship plan was
intended. The more than 50 dollars that will be
given by the sorority is the first of many dona-
tions to involve a sacrifice of any kind.
The Bomber-Scholarship plan in itself should
have the unanimous support of the entire cam-
pus. It is a guarantee that those students who
offer their services to their nation in its hour
of crisis will not be denied their claim to com-
pleted education.
THE ACTION of Kappa Kappa Gamma, how-
ever, should mean more than a mere evi-
dencing of that support. It should . typify an
entire campus movement. It is the duty of all
groups to forget the "frills" of normal peace-
time life and be willing to make the sacrifices
needed to win the war. Kappa Kappa Gamma
deserves the highest praise for its decision which
should be the forerunner of many more like it.

Appeasement Policy
Behind Sugar Deal
ITH THE DISCLOSURE in the news-
papers that Vichy France and the
United States are carrying on negotiations for
the sale of sugar from Reunion Island in the
Indian Ocean, the State Department of our
country may well attempt to use the fact as an
over-all whitewash for their appeasement policy.
It will doubtless be pointed out that through the
good efforts of the State Department, the sugar
shortage in the United States will be relieved at
least in part. It will certainly be said that the
88,000 metric tons of sugar, to be picked up by
empty cargo vessels returning from the Red Sea
and Persian Gulf must put an end to the sniping
aimed at the State Department's policy.
But if we look at the cost in human life and
suffering, we may yet doubt the course our State
Department is steering. To date, the sugar nego-
tiations are the only tangible evidence of coop-
eration between Vichy and Washington. The
myth that it has been through our efforts that
the French fleet has stayed at anchor has been
definitely exploded. Admiral Darlan will turn
the fleet over to Germany when he pleases. And
if we had won the friendship of Vichy, the Brit-
ish would never have had to bomb the Paris fac-

tories making munitions and supplies for the
Nazis.
THEREFORE, the net result of a year and a
half of appeasement is a proposed deal to
ease the shortage of sugar in the United States.
But on the other side of the ledger, we have
supplied General Rommel with more than a
million barrels of oil for his tanks. We have
supplied the Nazi's African army with food. We
have provided the Axis armies, both in Africa
and in Europe with the materials to fight against
our own allies. We are directly responsible, at
least in part, for the German successes.
For our part, we'd rather have less sugar,
- Eugene Mandeberg
unemployed through the conversion of industry
and for all those in the armed forces. Aside
from extensive administrative difficulties, the
idea is not inflationary to any important degree
and may be considered advisable in terms of
maximum war effort.
8. Create a labor production division in the
War Production Board.
9. Create a representative agency which will
make plans for post-war adjustment. Points 8
and 9 are essential to the nation, and they reveal
labor's perspective to be broader than "wage-
grabbing," as many would have us believe.
10. Accept all wages for time over 40 hours in

University. Authority was centralized in his
hands on the joint recommendation of ship
operators and the CIO longshoreman's umion,
the dominant maritime labor organization.
But on the Atlantic Coast the picture is very
different. There it smells to high heaven.
Following the excellent results obtained by the
appointment of Morse, the President advised
War Shipping Administrator Emory S. (Jerry)
Land to clean up the dismal East Coast mess the
same way. The inside word is that Land balked
under pressure from the operators and Jack
Ryan, burly boss of the AFL longshoreman's
union, which rules the Boston, New York and
Philadelphia waterfronts.
Rival CIO marine leaders charge that behind
the opposition of Ryan and the operators is the
fear that under an impartial federal shipping
czar the CIO unions will wrest control ofa the
waterfront from them. But whatever the rea-
son, it is a fact that Land has resisted taking
the step that has produced such excellent re-
aults on the West Coast.
Mismanagement And Sabotage
fT IS ALSO A PACT that the ship loading situa-
tion on the Atlantic Coast has become so bad
that the Justice Department and Truman com-
mittee have started probes that already have
uncovered shocking evidence.
These disclosures are so serious that insiders
say it is practically certain there will be arrests
and prosecutions on criminal charges.
These are some .of the things discovered by
the investigators:
1. That large numbers of known members of
the Bund, Christian Front and similar organ-
izations are permitted to load ships carrying
war supplies to Britain and Russia.
2. That one ship broke in two and capsized in
mid-ocean due to improper loading. Tanks and
other heavy equipment had been loaded fore and
aft and light materials amidships, violating the
first rule of ship loading to distribute a cargo
evenly. Investigating agents are convinced this
was sabotage.
3. Shifting cargo forced another ship to turn
back from a Russia-bound convoy. The vessel
was torpedoed and sunk a day later.
4. Five other vessels which developed cargo-
shifting trouble also had to turn back, but for-
tunately egcaped Nazi subs. However, to save
them from breaking up and capsizing, a con-
siderable portion of their precious war cargoes
had to be thrown into the sea.

TO THE EDITOR
Watered' Education . .
To the Editor:
CLAYTON DICKEY, in Sunday's Daily, makes
the suggestion that the present four-year
college course be shortened to two years, for, he
says, "it opens up the potentialities of higher
education to many for whom the long and costly
four-year program is an impossibility." Dickey
IS not referring to cutting education merely for
the duration; he believes that "it is possible to
acquire a liberal education in two years."
In terms of economics, Dickey's idea could be
attacked in more than one way, for its approach
is a negative one; the NYA which, if utilized to
its fullest, could finance all these students; the
system of free tuition as used at the City College
of New York is another way of making higher
education available to all; if neither of these
methods succeeds because the student's time
is needed to contribute towards the family
income, then thp question of aid to the family is
the problem; but no matter what the causes
may be,.Dickey's solution is neither a full one
nor a positive one.
HOWEVER, he says sin both Sunday's editorial
and previous ones), even if a student could
pay his way through college under the present
four-year system, there is still a need to cut
down our program to two years. This, he claims
in the name of progressive education.
How education can be termed "progressive"
which cuts down the amount of education given,
though, is beyond me. Dickey's attitude seems
to be that the only thing that really matters
these days in education is the diploma; thus, it
follows, let's give them the diplomas sooner and
more people will have time to go to college,
more people will have diplomas, more equality.
The iihportant thing about a liberal education
is that it gives the student four years to think
things over and to find himself, in an atmos-
phere conducive to thought. He is given the
opportunity to experiment, to read, to mature in
the most even-tempered atmosphere possible.
For the student who must take financial ad-
vantage of his education, it gives him time to
plan out his future work in logical fashion.
F Dickey disagrees with the above statement,
the question comes up: why send them to
college even for two years? It's no economic solu-
tion; if a student is receiving a technical educa-
tion, the amount of time to be spent is decided
by the actual amount of education needed to do
a certain job;but if he is receiving a 'liberal edu-
cation,' what more can be implied except that he
be given an intelligent atmosphere in which to
mature? And two years is not enough. To the
doddering facultymen who may be reading this,
the difference in age between a college graduate
who is twenty and one who is twenty-two may
not seem much, but actually it is the difference,
