Fraternity, Sorority
Stamp Sale Is Success
PAN-HELLENIC Council and The In-
terfraternity Council have just
wound up a whirlwind six-day Homecoming
Stamp and Bond Drive which should be ac-
claimed as one of the most important recent stu-
dent accomplishments.
The total of $29,500 has justified many a cam-
pusite's low whistle of amazement, especially
when viewed in proportion to the relatively
small number of college men and women buying
and selling them and to the little time in which
the job was done.
To such houses as Phi Kappa Psi, Psi Upsilon
and Alpha Delta Phi who gave doubly by turning
their' stamps over to the Bomber Scholarship
Fund, additional commendation must be given.
-Bud Brimmer
Former Nazi Leader
Should Be Tried Now
IT APPEARS as though another "For-
gotten 'Man" is not going to be
allowed to pass out of our memories. And right-
fully so. The man is Rudolph Hess, British-held
former Nazi leader. In an editorial, the official
Soviet organ Pravda asked for a clarification of
his status. It said: "It should be established who
Hess is at present.. . a criminal who is to be
tried and punished or the plenipotentiary repre-
sentative of the Hitler Government i England,
enjoying immunity."
It hardly seems justifiable to accord Hess any
sort of immunity, even if only until the armistice,
while we punish saboteurs to the fullest extent
of the law. Certainly' a man whoianked as one
of Hitler's most poisonous stooges deserves the
--Jim Wienner
Draft-Age Youths Lack
Maturity, Experience
to amefid the Constitution and
thrust the vote into the laps of eighteen year old
boys has two basic faults.
(1) It is absolutely false to contend that
if eighteen year old boys can fight, they can
vote. Learning the art of combat and acquiring
the necessary education, experience, and ma-
turity to vote are entirely opposing operatios.
(2) Psychiatrists chosen by the National
Committee on Mental Hygiene to debate on low-
ering the draft age to eighteen were .split in their
opinions on whether 'teen agers were "mentally
fit" or sufficiently mature to handle themselves
in combat. It certainly can't be denied that
mental fitness is just as important if not more
so in making up the requirements of a voter.
Sensational movements such as Vandenberg's
should be looked at with level-headedness. In
wartime quack ideas seem more readily to get
into our legislatures as did 'the- temperance
movement of the First World War which, in
practice, proved to be a failure.
It must also be remembered that Senator

I'd Rather,
Be Right_
to read the news carefully and put scraps of this
and that together. Sometimes they make a pic-
* * * e
We see American labor pretty solidly opposed
to legislation compelling a man to work where
the war needs, him.
Forced labor is no good, says labor. But the
Wall Street Journal, in a thorough survey, re-
ports that labor opinion is one of the chief obsta-
cles (though not the only one) to the hiring of
Negroes, especially in the East. Forced idleness
is no good, either.
It looks as if every labor resolution against
manpower legislation should be accompanied by
a' resolution asking that all shops be opened to
Negroes. Not one of those nice, wholesale national
resolutions, either, but a lot of nice, retail resolu-
tions, down in the individuallocals.
Otherwise that subtle revenge which race pre-
judice always takes on its friends will come about.
White labor will be drafted the faster, in exact
proportion to the degree with which it denies us
the work of Negroes.
How To Save A Flyer's Time
I see by the papers that tin is very important.
We have gone to the trouble of flying 47 tons of
it out of China.
The War Production Board mutters that if
each American family were to use one less con-
tainer of canned goods each week, we would save
more than 2,600 tons of tin a year, and almost
190,000 tons of steel, and 77 tons of rubber. (We
have been flying crude rubber, too, out of Brazil.)
Someone has to do a lot of expensive flying
because someone won't, darn it, take one tin can
a week from the average American family. It
turns out that the way to save not only tin and
steel, but aviation gasoline and flying time in
China and Brazil, is, perhaps, to issue tin can
ration coupons; you need one for every purchase
of a canned comestible.
Ten Old Pennies
The mint has been looking at statistics and
drooling, too.
It says 1,000 tons of copper could be saved if
each family would dig up 10 idleold copper pen-
nies and turn them into a war stamp.
But nobody rings the door bell and says: Hello,
family, how about your ten pennies?
We love statistics based on a lot of families,
but we don't like to break through the statistics
back to the families again.
In fact, the statistical approach is our curse. It
enables us to govern averages, avoiding the hard
work of governing people. This does away with
the grossness of direct contact between govern-
ment and people, such contact always having
been dreaded in our country, where government
is considered a kind of scarlet woman.
So we take the average motorist, who does not
exist, and cut him down to an average "A"card
for gasoline, and. avoid having to look a real
motorist in the eye, and say: Hello, driver, sure
you need a car at all?
Before I'put my papers away (all this, on the
Broadway Limited to Chicago) I enjoyed reading
about our new bombing techniques over Europe.

WASHINGTON- If the President and the
country want to get a full realization of how
democracy is streamlining for action they should
think back to the summer of 1941, just one year
ago, when, for what seemed like unending weeks,
the Congress stewed over extension of the Selec-
tive Service Act.
Senate and House isolationists were harangu-
ing the galleries on the iniquities of keeping the
boys more than one year in camp; telling the
public how the Navy was already convoying
ships; revealing in advance that Roosevelt had
sent troops to Iceland.
Finally by the thin margin of one vote, 203
to 202, and thanks to the sage generalship of
Speaker Sam Rayburn, the Selective Service Act
was extended. Had it not been for that narrow
victory, we should have had no army to rush to
Australia, and the whole war effort would have
received a tragic set-back.
But last week, a war-geared House of Repre-
sentatives passed the 18-19 year draft extension
act in three days; and it should be passed by the
Senate and signed by the President inside the
Politically and personally, nobody wanted the
18-19 year draft extension. It was the worst time
to pass it, just before elections. But Congress is
doing a much better job than most people realize
for streamlined democracy.
A strong debate is raging among propaganda
chiefs over the question of atrocity stories and
pictures. The Government has received a lot of
such material from Allied sources, especially
the Chinese and Poles, including such horrible
scenes as Japanese attacking Chinese women,
and pouring oil on live bodies before setting the
torch to them.
Opponents of publication argue that the atroc-
ity stories of the'last war were largely invented,
and when so exposed left the public disillusioned;
thus the people might now react unfavorably
and charge the Government with pulling the
same tricks.
Other officials argue, however, that the mater-
ial is authentic, that it is not posters and rumors,
but actual photographs, and the public should
know what sort of enemies we are fighting.
It is apparently a part of the German psycho-
logical warfare to treat British and Americans
with reasonable humaneness in order to keep us
lulled in a state of moderate warfare. They save
their worst tricks for the conquered nations and
the Russians.
The Poles and Chinese are urging use of the
material as a necessary means of fully arousing
the American public to the menace.
Elmer Davis' Office of War Information is set
to go, once the debate is settled.
Norris. Of Nebraska
Despite his 81 winters, it is interesting to note
how little change has come over the grand old
man of the Senate, George Norris of Nebraska.,
The war has narrowed his range. Public power
is nolonger a burning national issue. Thanks to
his foresight in crusading for the Tennessee
Valley and Boulder Dam, the nation's power is
well harnessed for victory. And the rights of
labor seldom figure in the Senate debate any-
But Norris still remains one of the most active

University has the right to inspect
keys believed to open University
buildings at any reasonable time or
place. No person holding an author-
ized key may order, have made, or
permit to be ordered or made any
duplicate of his or her University
key otherwise than through the Key
Clerk's office, nor may he lend his
authorized key. Complete compli-
ance with these regulations would
undoubtedly have saved the Univer-
sity and individuals numerous losses
from theft in the past. In the pres-
ent war emergency compliance is
especially desirable and requested.

A letter from the War Production
Board stresses the need for dormant
scrap in addition to normal produc-
tion scrap as follows:
"Dormant scrap is defined as ob-
solete machinery, tools, equipment,
dies, jigs, fixtures, etc., which are in-
capable of current or future use in
the war production effort because
they are broken, worn out, irrepar-
able, dismantled or in need of un-
available parts necessary to practical
reemployment. Dormant scrap should
not be construed to apply to reusable
machinery, equipment, dies, jigs, fix-
tures, etc., which can currently or
in the future be used by the owner
or others, with ori without repairs,
in work which contributes directly
to the war production effort."
It is also emphasized that the Gov-
ernment's grave responsibility to sup-
ply American armed forces with ships,
guns, airplanes, and tanks makes it
mandatory that all dormant scrap

To The Editor:
A FEW WEEKS AGO, one of the
foremost educators of our time
dared to raise his voice and speak the
works which must be in the mind of
every clear-thinking student. Now...
he is being assaulted by men who
have not been able to grasp the real
significance of the cause for which
millions of American men are ready-
ing themselves to die.
Naturally .., we mind having our
college careers interrupted by war.
However, we fully realize that the
issues at stake are far greater than
any one of us individually. Conse-
quently . . . individually and collec-
tively ... we are ready-even eager-
to fight and to win for our ideas. But,
we are eager only so long asrwe can
feel assured that while we are gone
our right of ". . . learning to live as
well as to die . . ." will not be de-
stroyed, or eventarnished, by men
"all-out" for war. These latter hold
their present and temporary position
of esteem because they convinced the
electorate of Michigan that they fully
supported the true American ideals
of education. By their recent actions,
these men appear ready to throw
overboard all that they once cham-
IF THERE IS any justification for
man's barbaric conflicts it is not to
be found in material gain. Rather it
is to be found in nev ideas for a bet-
ter life. History is laughing in the
faces of those who would have us
believe otherwise.
Social advancement does . not
come from the mouths of cannons.
It comes from the mouths of men
like Alexander G. Ruthven. His
attackers have quite evidently lost
sight of the fact that 25 years from

now, America will need educated
men far worse than she will need
master-mechanics. True ... these
latter men have the bigger job to
do now, and we humbly thank them
for the way in which they are doing
that job. Yet.. . six months after
the armistice is signed, these men
will be back on an automobile
assembly line. It is the men with
manicured nails rather than the
men with greasy faces who must
win the peace. We won the last war.
But unless we rationalize-unless
we get the proper perspective-un-
less we put the proper thing in the
proper place-we shall also lose this
Bigotry and small-mindedness have
no place in an America at war nor in
an America at peace. Unless we cull
our pseudo-intelligentsia, and unless
we do it now, we might as well let the
third strike be called while we sit on
the bench.
WVEWOULD LIKE to ask a few
questions. Just exactly what is it
that we are fighting for? Are we
fighting merely to win the war, as
they would have us believe? If so ...
what will we have won but a battle-
