T HIS IS THE LAST ONE. That great big old
heart hasn't been in the business for the last
week or so, and now in order that I may enjoy a
brief period in the sun, loafing like senior, also
five more gym cuts and various papers, I am
going the way of all college, up the steps to shake
hands with the boss man, and away to a mem-
ory and a picture in the 'Ensian. There will be
no more columns churlish, not much more coffee
drinking, fewer arguments. Other people will do
all the things I have done-i.e., sleep, take ex-
ams, get papers in late, write columns-and do
them just as well. To be gracious, I should say
"better", but after watching these things go on
for quite awhile, I have reached the conclusion
that nobody does them much better. There will
be an adjustment to fit the times, a different
slant, but just as there has been no better in this
column as compared to predecessors, I can say.
clearing my throat, that there probably will not
be a better to follow. We all start out strong.
Like the poems, God gives us the first stanza,
and the rest is not gravy. Intelligent kids, kids
with more to start with than I had, will slide
gently into my polished chair here, but grinding
them out three a week will tell, mark my words.
Much sweat and a certain curiosity is the best
formula still, and if you rise too far above that,
you don't belong in the newspaper business. A
column doesn't take all you've got. It takes
time, and some work, but it is not by any ex-
cept the most innocent estimates, a great, all-
engrossing task. It is a thing you should be able
to toss off easily if you have an idea, and some-
times even if you haven't an idea. It is finally
the sort of job you leave to go to your room and
write something better. I hope successors will
heed this, at least after the glorious first two or
three weeks when you pour out the things you
have carried on your chest up until. It should
be some consolation to them. It has been to me
known few of them who were not profession-
ally associated with the business, but I assume
there must be others-no great words for the
ending. This is not a climax. That came a long

time ago, I couldn't say just where for sure. Call
this rather a climax of poignance, of that last-
week feeling given to seniors. I had things to
save for a last column, some of them bitter, some
of them schmaltzy. But all that remains now as
I write this is the old regret, memories of the
trees along quiet streets, the way certain boards
creaked each time I stepped on them, a few hazy
mental pictures of pretty girls, of good classes,
small victories and defeats. A thousand times I
have cursed this place in the good ripe language
my father taught me. A thousand other times it
has been a place where wonderful things hap-
pened. It is, I suppose; neither as bad nor as.
good as I have seen it. Whatever it is, my life,
and the lives of all of us, are closely linked to it,
spiritually, and physically. I have not eaten the
Ann Arbor hamburgers, but I shall remember
them. I have not made the most of all my op-
portunities, but I have made some use of many
of them. There is so much, and at the end you
do not say any of it. Good men and bad, bright
and dull, buildings that take on personal signifi-
cance; squirrels and campus dogs, the sound of
the clock as it strikes eleven then falls into si-
lence for the night, the bells of the carillon, soft,
shut off by buildings as you move along to some-
place. The hushed uproar of the libraries, the
scuffing of feet on sidewalks, make your own
list. Two full years to write about it, and now I
can see that it never was said, that there is never
time, that you never know until it is time to go,
and the pattern then is too complex to be com-
municated. You look quickly around, and swal-
low hard, and leave. Repeat performance of
Clarence Day:
Farewell, my friends, farewell, and hail,
Im off to seek the holy grail.
I cannot tell you why.
Remember, please, when I am gone,
,Twas aspiration led me on.
Tiddley widdley, toodle-oo,
All I want is to be with you,
But here I go, goodbye.

Rabble-Rouser Smith
On GOP Ticket? . - -
O NE of America's ablest demagogues,
Gerald L. K. Smith, the late Huey
Long's country-style rabble-rouser, is getting
ambitious for the better political things in life.
On April 9 he began his campaign for the
Republican nomination for Senator from Michi-
gan. His campaign got under way with the aid
of his Committee of One Million, one of the sub-
marginal reactionary organizations of America.
At a meeting of his committee he took a poll
of the members who came to indulge in a re-
freshing evening of Red-baiting, Roosevelt-
hating and denunciation of "boondoggling and
bureaucratic politicians." Of course his follow-
ers accepted their gaulefter as a candidate.
Gerald L. K. Smith is well-equipped for ora-
tory along the Winrod, Coughlin, Pelley, Long
line. As Long's lieutenant, he had ample oppor-
tunity to develop his backwoods, fire-and-brim-
stone style into full-fledged independence.
In the 1936 presidential campaign, Smith toed
the line, speaking for William Lemke, who ran
under the fortunately forgotten National Union
banner. He spoke on the same platform with
Charles E. Coughlin. For a sideline he spoke
for the Townsend movement.
SMITH has a complete political program
planned. Its very comprehensiveness is amaz-
ing. He says in his new publication, The Cross
and the Sword, "I shall support the war effort
100 percent." No doubt that will make the
Washington bureaucrats very happy.
The rest of his platform contains a few more
original planks. He promises "tires for every-
body." He will campaign for one-hundred-dollar
pay for soldiers as a continuation of his com-
mittee's program. He will be the voice of the
oppressed people. He will support labor's right
but "oppose the conspired attempt on the part
of the Reds and the Communists in America to
capture the pivotal positions in the organized
labor movement." He will side with the farm
leaders who oppose the experiments of "bureau-
cratic dictatorship." He will give a fair hearing
to the Townsend movement.
All cheers should go to Gerald , K. Smith for
his stanld o1n thle ,sulpression of his colleaguc,
"I tnall defend the right of free speech and
free press for Father Charles E. Coughlin. The
treatment that this minister of Christ is receiv-
ing at the hands of the bloodthirsty Reds is un-
Social ;lusticer, Coughlin's weekly newspaper,

seditious content and recently suspended pub-
Add to Smith's own words the fact that he was
a member of the Silver Shirts whose leader,
William Dudley Pelley, is in jail for sedition, his
hate of Roosevelt and his opposition for every-
thing progressive and one obtains a rather good

WASHINGTON-In the office of Federal
Trade Commissioner March is a sign which
That advice would be most beneficial, if
heeded, in certain high offices vital to the war
Before Pearl Harbor, the American public was
sickened by the jurisdictional fights between
labor unions; the sight of vital defense projects
stymied while a CIO union fought an AFL union
over who should collect dues.
Since Pearl Harbor labor rows have dwindled.
But behind the scenes in Washington, jurisdic-
tional fights, just as bad as those between rival
labor unions, continue. And, as in the case of
racketeering labor czars, prestige or personal
vanity is often the_ sole issue between rival
For instance, Army and Navy Intelligence
fought Col. Donovan's committee to the last
ditch on counter-espionage. The head of Mili-
tary Intelligence, Gen. Sherman Miles, was
transferred before full cooperation was created.
Later the Donovan Committee actually sent
electricians over to the State Department and
ripped out the teletype machine by which the
Sta te Depal'tment was receiving news for its
propaganda broadcasts to occupied countries,
This, the Donovan Committee contended, was
its job, not thLe State Departinent's.
AGAIN when the Rockefeller Conmitce was
appointed to propagandize in Latin Amer-
ica, the State Department fought it tooth and
nail. Latin American propaganda, the State
Department said, was its job, and could not be
delegated to the Rockefeller Committee or any-
one else.
But Later, when the Donovan Coinnittee
wanted to send short wave broadcasts to Latin
America, the State Department and the Rocke-
feller Committee suddenly got together. They
united against the common enemy, the Donovan
"Latin America," said both Rockefeller and
the diplomats in effect, "is our stamping ground.
Keep out!" -
Then there was the quarrel between Justice
and the Treasury as to which should handle
alien property. The argument lasted so long
that it delayed seizure of certain important
German patents, and finally was settled when
Roosevelt appointed Leo Crowley to be Alien
Property Custodian, independent of both de-

can public, not the bureaucrats, which suffers.
And the result of the Wallace-Hull jurisdic-
tional row may be that the public will have less
Brazilian rubber, less Bolivian tin, less of other
Latin American materials.
The row dates back to last summer when the
White House created the Bureau of Economic
Warfare to use the power of American dollars,
trade and loans to hit the Axis abroad, particu-
larly in South America.
Secretary Hull at that time was wrathful that
the job was given to Wallace, and referred to
the Vice President in strong and picturesque
language. Hull also blamed Undersecretary
Welles and Lawrence Duggan, his Latin Ameri-
can adviser, for letting Wallace get the job while
he, Hull, was on vacation.
Then came Pearl Harbor and the need for
rubber, tin, quinine, hemp, vegetable oils. Some-
thing was supposed to be done about filling
some of these needs at the Rio de Janeiro Con-
ference in January. But though the State De-
partment sent experts to discuss rubber at Rio,
nothing happened. Three months passed. And
not a single pound of rubber reached us from
So .a t his point Wallace's Bureau of Economic
Warfare step~ped in with a plan for doing what
tie Amerwan Chicle Company has done in Cen-
tral America -send U.S. experts into the jungle,

goods-- by airplane if necessary.
Wallace's men pointed out that to tap rubber
trees in the Amazon jungles required steamboat
transportation, barracks, quinine, food and or-
ganization. They planned to use American Chicle
rnen to do it, in cooperation with Brazil,
St(1, De (,Wi'-fei Say$ No
the State Department said no. 'They ob-
jected that this would offenid Brazil, that it
would be invading that nation's sovereign rights,
would hurt the Good Neighbor policy.
The Bureau of Economic Warfare countered
that they would work closely with Brazilians,
would do nothing to interfere with Brazilian
But the State Department continued to say
no. Foreign relations, it argued were the tradi-
tional prerogative of the Secretary of State,
And after the question was subjected to much
Iheniming and hawing, the President backed tip
tIe career boys.
So today the State Department can refuse a
passport to any man Wallace wants to send to
Brazil if it so chooses. And all negotiations
