NIGHT EDITOR: ROBERT PREISKEL
A Tribute
to Prof. Sunderlatid . .
T RADITIONS OF EXCELLENCE, like
social and political progress, can
only be established by unrelenting vigilance, per-
severance and idealism. Such traditions have
grown with the University's student publica-
tions, from their earliest days in the back rooms
of professional printing shops to their present
maturity in the most thoroughly equipped and
modern student publications building in the na-
tion.
During the past 25 years, the Michiganensian
has developed into the only college yearbook
with an all-student business, art and editorial
staff. and has been awarded many first-class
ratings by the National Scholastic Press Asso-
ciation.
During the past 25 years, the Gargoyle has
become nationally known as the best illustrated
of collegiate humor magazines.
During the past 25 years, Perspectives has
come to rank with the best in literary magazines.
During the past 25 years, the The Michigan
Daily has been recognized as the outstanding
college newspaper. It has won the highest
awards of Sigma Delta Chi, national professional
journalism fraternity, and the Pacemaker Rat-
ing, highest award given by the Associated Col-
legiate Press.
These records sta'nd as testimony not only to
our traditions, but indeed as a tribute to the
quarter-century of invaluable service of one
man-Prof. Edson R. Sunderland. It is his name
that will always be synonomous with these years
of growth through guidance-guidance achieved
only by Professor Sunderland's unstinting inter-

WASHINGTON-John L. Lewis has set the
stage for his long expected blow-up with Phil
Murray and the CIO.
That's the real purpose behind the special
United Mine Worker Policy Committee meeting
next Monday. Lewis' announcement said the
pow-wow would consider vacation and other
war problems affecting the union. But that
was only window dressing.
Lewis secretly has far more important business
up his sleeve. He's bent on venting his fury on
Murray and the CIO.
Inside word is that charges of disruption, dis-
loyalty, etc. will be placed against Murray before
the Policy Committee-which is made up over-
whelmingly of hand-picked Lewis henchmen.
Also that a long list of complaints will be made
against the CIO.
Purpose of the two moves will be to lay the
foundation for ousting Murray as UMW ,vice-
president and for withdrawing the UMW from
the CIO.
Murray Supporters
Murray plans to attend the meeting. So does
Van A. Bittner, head of UMW District 17, and
Pat Fagin, head of UMW District 5, both staunch
Murray friends.
Bittner has been in Lewis' bad books since
the West Virginian refused to knuckle down
and go along with Lewis when he bolted to
Wendell Willkie. Several months ago, at a UMW
Executive Board meeting, Lewis instigated an
investigation of Bittner by a hand-picked com-
mittee. Nothing more has been heard of this
maneuver, but it is expected to pop up again at
the Monday conference.
Bittner and Fagin are tough fighters and
veterans of many union wars. With any kind of
a chance, they'll give Lewis plenty battle for
his money.
Divided Counsl
But the big question is what kind of a chaince
Murray and his backers will have.
To begin with, the Policy Committee is stacked
overwhelming against them. Most of the mem-
bers owe their good-paying jobs to Lewis and
as he has long demonstrated, he is absolutely
ruthless with those beholden to him who don't
do his bidding.
Secondly, there is a division of views within
the Murray camp on the course he should pursue.
Some are advising that he go before the Com-
mittee with a blasting denunciation of Lewis
and then resign. Others are urging that he de-
nounce Lewis, but stick it out and defy him.
These advisers contend that for Murray to
resign would be playing squarely into Lewis'
hands: enable him to make the claim that
Murray didn't dare face a showdown. On the
other hand, by meeting Lewis head on, it is
argued, Murray would force Lewis to carry the
fight to the UMW rank and file, to whom the
miner chief would have to justify his isolation-
ism, his attacks on Roosevelt, and his recent
attempts to raid other unions.
What Murray will do is his secret. But if
Lewis starts anything, the fur will fly hot and
furious.
Note: Government authorities view the dis-
turbed internal UMW situation with concern.
They fear that if the fight goes to the rank and
file, which is tough, independent and battle-
scarred, the battling may seriously retard coal
production. Authorities are 100 percent behind
Murray and if he needs any help he'll get all he
asks for-and then some.
(:ivet Of W Firds
South Carolina's crusty Senator "Cotton Ed"
Smith has a little routine he invariably goes
through when he enters the special elevator
reserved for senators in the Capitol
If ie wants to go to the Senate restaurant, 1e
directs the elevator operator, "Let me off at the
feed trough." If Smith is headed for the Senate
chamber he says, "Take me to the cave of the
winds."

Note: Smith's pat description of the Senate
comes very fittingly from him. He is one of the
long-winded and bellow-voiced members of the
chamber.

Federal Security Administrator Paul McNutt

has approved the plan and an executive order
has been prepared for the President's signature.
Roosevelt has been in favor of the consolidation
for a long time.
Likely head of the combined agency is Aubrey
Williams, able and popular NYA director.
A veteran Administrationite and one of the
most efficient executives in Washington, Wil-
liams has powerful backing for the job on Capi-
tol Hill from both Republicans and Democrats.
One of the remarkable things about Williams is
that although he is a staunch New Dealer, some
of his strongest boosters are old-time Republi-
cans.
Linguists
One thing that impressed Peruvian President
Manuel Prado during his visit to the Capitol
was the linguistic talent of the legislators.
Twenty-seven House members addressed the
Peruvian chief in Spanish when they filed by to
shake his hand. One member who proved him-
self especially adept was Representative Richard
M. Kleberg of Texas.
Prado also showed himself an able linguist.
In addition to speaking English fluently, he re-
plied easily in French when Representative Aime
J. Forand of Rhode Island addressed him in that
tongue.
Later, the Peruvian grinningly told House
leaders: "Had I known there were so many Rep-
resentatives who would have understood, I would
have delivered my speech in Spanish."

To the Editor:
The recent announcement that Ted Weems
and his orchestra will play for the Senior Ball
leaves only the conclusion that a substantial
refund should be paid to ticket holders. It is
doubtless safe to say that those who paid four
dollars for tickets expended that money in ex-
pectation that the band would be of the calibre
of Glenn Miller, Harry James or Benny Good-
man, bands which were voted upon during the
ticket sale.
But to foist on the students a band of no more
quality than has red Weems for the price of
Glenn Miller is not fair exchange. Surely Weems
is no, better than some of the bands which play
for the two-dollar dances held at the Union
where the ticket sales have to be limited to
something like 300 instead of 1,250.
Whoever is responsible for the dilly-dallying
in hiring bands should discover that top-notch
bands cannot. be secured only two weeks in ad-
vance. The date of the Senior Ball was known
in February and that was the time to make ar-
rangements for a good band. Surely past ex-
perience at the Senior Ball shows that chances
of financial loss are hardly feasible. Also, the
competition for orchestras by colleges through-
out the nation during the last part of May and
the early weeks in June forces a dance commit
tee to make arrangements early if the party is
to have outstanding music.
We regret that the last dance of the 1941-42
year will wind up on such a sour note,

L AST WEEK the luisitut for Educa-
tion by Radio held its annual ses-
sion at Columbus. O. There were plenty of top-
ics and problemls discussed but there was one
question that was especially prominent. It was
the query, "Should Americans be made to hate?

And if so, should they just hate the enemy gov-
ernments or the enemy people individually?'
Today we are fighting another war for democ-.
racy. We are fighting the German, Italian-and
,Japa miese governments, their principles and
ideals, It is not I e citizens of these countries
we :re1 ighllini.. Yet it 5L'Psi15 that American

will effect be on the post-war peace? Surely
it will not be pleasant.
F hate for individuals is instilled in people to-
day there is little hope for a long post-war
lcace. If parents are taught to hate now, their
children will go O l hating in the future.
It is not the Jal ese fa rmer we 1hate but the
,Japanese governmnent, its imperialism and ideals.
Nor is it, the German scientist, composer or art-
ist; we despise but rather the Nazi government
and its principles.
