(Continued from Page 1)
Most of the present embittered
relations come from misunder-
standing and lack of courtesy. I
am certain that there has been no
attempt at censorship or suppres-
sion of facts on the part of the
Board of Publications, nor any de-
sire to be oppressive and unrea-
sonable. It was with real regret
on my part, and I believe on the
part of other members of the
Board, that the full recommenda-
tions for a new staff could not be
followed. Personal qualities of
responsibility and realization of
duties to the University must be
taken into consideration as well
as technical competence. Most of
the recommendations were fol-
lowed with pleasure after proper
inquiries and investigation.
The Board takes pride in the
splendid accomplishments of The
Daily and other student publica-
tions. Professor Densmore asked
the Board to let him communicate
his congratulations to the editor
and staff of the Gargoyle for good
work recently because it had been
his unpleasant duty to convey
complaints so frequently that he
rejoiced in the opportunity to con-
gratulate. I have had occasion to
commend The Daily for its or-
ganization of student effort in war
work and particularly for defend-
ing our liberal heritage in educa-
tion. The Michigan Daily is a stu-
dent newspaper of which we are
proud, and which should continue
. in its best traditions. I sincerely
hope' that in the interests of the
incoming staff, the outgoing edi-
tors will put aside their grivances,
and give the new editors an oppor-
tunity to interpret the University
in a particularly difficult period
unhampered by suspicion and dis-
trust. Certainly the incoming staff
has my confidence and my assur-
ance that they have every reason
to 'expect fair play and the pro-
motion of healthy controversy free
from personalities.
(Editor's Note: Homer Swander,
Morton Mintz and Will Sapp thank
Board member Throop for his genu-
inely fine and constructive letter.)

No Interference Needed
To the Editor:
For many years The Michigan
Daily has been recognized as a
"Pacemaker" among college publi-
cations. This distinction is not a
meaningless one. It represents
award of merit on the basis of for-
mat, coverage, and intelligent edi-
torial direction. To residents of the
college community, The Daily's
performance this year has contin-,
ued this fine tradition. The expres-
sion of opinion-student opinion, to
be sure, but a college newspaper is
the organ of student opinion-has
been clear, fresh and vigorous, I
see no need for interference with
Daily policies.

Department
'Fair, Courageous'
To the Editor:
The undersigned Negro students
of the University wish to express to
the retiring staff of The Michigan
Daily our appreciation and thanks
for the series of liberal statements
on the Negro question which have
appeared in the editorial columns
of the paper during their term of
office. We have always found those
statements well informed, fair and
courageous.
Though we have, of course,
been particularly pleased by the
editorials written in the interests
of our people, we have been fully
aware that the struggle for the
extension of the benefits (yes,
and the responsibilities) of a true
democracy to us, is only a part
of aslarger struggle for the reali-
zation of true democracy in
America.
Of course those who enlist in the
struggle will be ridiculed and even
persecuted by the cynics and by
those who seek selfish ends. But if
the firm will and the courage re-
vealed in the editorial policy of The
Daily's retiring staff is any index
of the spirit of American youth,
then the forces of reaction, power-
ful though they are, will not pre-.
vail.

BOARD DISPUTE:
Clarification Of Three
Points By Daily Editors
yESTERDAY, after Board member Coffey had
set the tone, we allowed ourselves at times
to wax somewhat sarcastic and perhaps a little
flippant. We did this because Prof. Coffey's letter
deserved no better, but it is not the plane we
wish to maintain in our dispute with the Board
in Control.
We believe the matter is a serious one and
should be treated as such. Future letters, even
from Board members, must be in good taste
and contain some vestiges of dignity or they
will not be printed.
When we make a mistake we like to admit it,
not only because it is the thing to do, but also
because we have the facts on our side and do not
have to resort to mistruths. Yesterday we erred
In saying that the Board knew Leon Gordenker
had been classified in 4-F. They knew only that
he would probably be so classified. Our basic
argument on the general point m question still
,stads, however.
WT WANT to emphasize once again that our
conflict is not so much with the entire
Board as it is with Chairman G. E. Densmore.
Although we have had disagreements with
other Board members and have thought some
of them remiss in ther duties, the majority
of our trouble has stemmed from Prof. Dens-
*oee. On Tuesday wepointed out in detail 'ur
reasons for demanding his resignation.
Ie sincerely believe that the larger share of
our conflict with the Board would 'be dissolved
Upon the resignation of Prof Densmore. For this
reason, we are still waiting for the appropriate
action on his part.

AN OBITUARY:
Student Senators
Give Up The Ghost
THE STUDENT SENATE, last vestigial organ
of a representative campus government, died
yesterday of malnutrition. It was six years old.
Born as the offspring of Spring lParley, the
Senate started life with a' democratic principle,
thirty members and no precedents. At its death-
bed it still had the democratic priciple and had
Piled up a long list of "don'ts" for representative
bodies.
There is little likelihood of any attempt to re-
vive the Senate until after the war, and even
then it won't be an easy job. The resurrectionists
will be haunted by "debating society," "party
politics" and that oldest of all Senate ghosts
"well, 'it's a good idea but THEY won't like it."
Right now the campus is cynical of repre-
sentative student government as they have
seen it, and justly so. The Student Senate had
all of the disadvantages of the democratic form
and offered comparatively few of the benefits.
It quibbled away evenings on parliamentary
procedure and it made a practice of seeing how
fast it could pull in its neck after sticking it

DREW
PEARSON s
MERRY-GO-ROUND
WASHINGTON-Manpower Boss Paul McNutt
has been sessioning with the Truman Committee
regarding certain problems whch touch the lives
of everyone. They include: size of the Army,
where we will get labor for farms, and whether
the Army shall be used in mines and industry.
Senators on the Committee were impressed
both with the gravity of the problems McNutt
placed before them, and his general views re-
garding them.
McNutt revealed that Undersecretary of War
Patterson had been talking to him about a total
armed force of about 11,000,000 to 15.000,00 men.
This included not merely the Army, but the
Navy, the Coast Guard and the Marine Corps-
everything except the Merchant Marine.
However, McNutt pointed out that shipping
facilities and submarine warfare seriously limited
the number of troops which could be sent abroad
and supplied. The figure he mentioned must re-
main a military secret, but he indicated that with
Hitler's U-boats working overtime aroundNorth
Africa, it was going to be difficult to maintain a
very large army in North Africa.
In addition to North Africa, he pointed to the
problem of supplying other war fronts in the
Pacific, together with Russia and England.
As a result, McNutt doubted the feasibility
of a world's record army now. He was all for
giving the military and navy what they wanted
so long as it could be transported to the combat
zones, but he opposed a huge army which would
eat its head offat home, especially in view
of the fact that morale deteriorates when an
army is kept idle.
At one time, McNutt said, a huge army at home
was considered necessary to protect the United
States But now military experts felt this danger
greatly lessened, though a certain number of re-
serves must be trained.
Army Will Harvest Crops
McNutt was asked a great many questions
about farm labor, especially by Senator Truman
of Missouri. He replied that the Army had been
unwiling to let men go home on furlough to help
with the crops because this hurt morale. How-
ever, he said the Army was working on a plan to
send Army units into farm areas, in battalions
or companies, and have them help with farm
work on an organized basis under Army com-
mand.
"What about sending the Army into the coal
mines?" someone asked at this point.
This got no enthusiastic welcome. Though the
matter was not discussed in detail, it seemed to
be the unspoken feeling of the committee that
too big an army going into industry and agri-
culture on an organized military basis might
come close to developing a militarized system in
the U.S.A. similar to that against which we were
fighting in Europe.
Only one member of the Committee, Senator
Hatch of New Mexico, felt that the armed forces
should be given a free rein to go ahead and build
up tremendous strength not subject to civilian
check and supervision.
Other Committee members expressed the

I'd Rather
Be Right
- -By SAMUEL GRAFTON
NEW YORK-Everything that is wrong in
State Department policy is wrapped up in Sec-
retary Hull's bitter remark that the people of the
United States ought to pay more attention to the
war and less to politics, .meaning the politics of
North Africa.
The good Secretary could not have said
more plainly that he regards war and politics
as entirely separate and different things. Each
is a closed world of its own, to his mind, and
one may spend his time in one world, or the
other, or skip lightly between them, at will.
This cozy theory is an old favorite of those
to whom some of the implications of political
struggle are distressing. This picture has been
painted for us before. In it, war is clear, whole-
some, a world of action. Somewhere apart lies
politics, which is dirty, unwholesome, not suitable
for the clean-limbed and the bright-eyed. They
should turn from it, as from a tawdy woman;
they should snub it; they should refuse to bow'
to it when they meet it in the street.
THERE ARE TWO WARS
WHEN, yesterday, in this space I said that two
wars are going on, a war against fascism and
a war against Hitler, I did not expect this re-
mark confirmation to be offered so soon. The war
against fascism is politics, our kind of politics;
the war against Hitler is the military war. The
task of our age is to merge the two. Mr. Hull's
remark is a plea that we should not merge the
two.
Clausewitz said that war is a continoation of
politics by other means. Mr. Hull denies it
vigorously. It is his remarkable theory that the
war is a thing-in-itself, that it had no parents
and will have no children, that it is a kind of
police operation upon which we can turn our
exclusive attention (he has asked us to do so)
as upon a chase sequence in a western film, a
fight between cowboys and robbers, cops and
bums.
Ours is to forget all about Marcel Peyrouton
and to shout "Hi-yo, Silver!"
NON-POLITICAL POLITICS
NOW, IT IS a remarkable fact that this very
maneuver, of separating the world'of poli-
tics from the world of war, is, in itself, a political
action of profound importance. By asking us
not to attack Marcel Peyrouton, the ruffian
fascist, as governor-general of Algeria, it says
to us: "Please support Marcel Peyroutoi," and
that is a political plea. It says to us: "In the
struggle between the Fighting French and the
ex-Vichyites for the right to lead North Africa,
please do not support the Fighting French,"
and that is a political plea, too, in support of
the ex-Vichyites.
The act of separating politics from war is.
a political act; it is an imperative designed to
cut off American political support for French
democrats grouped about de Gaulle.
Thus, like one of those dazzling old Greek
paradoxes, the very statement: "Politics can be
separated from war" has so much political ef-
fect that it proves politics cannot be separated
from war; it 1S the' most streamlined reductio
ad absurdum in the history of logic;

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

'Congratulations'
To the Editor:
Congratulations on your even-
tempered expose of the difficulties
of cooperation between the Editors
and the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications. Since adverse
critics are apt to be more vocal
than others, I would like to suggest
to those of your readers who, in
general, approve your policies that
they drop a card to the Editors
stating their opinion of The Daily
as it has been conducted during the
past year. If those who do not wish
to have their communication ap-
pear in print were to add the state-
ment, "Not for publication," I am
sure the request would be respected.
Whenever a class is found in a
state of rebellion against a
teacher, it is not necessary to in-
quire at the moment which is in'
the right about the particular is-
sue over which the dispute arose.
We know that the tea'cher has
erred in dealing with the situa-
tion. The same is true in the re-
lationships between a team and
its coach, and likewise in the
present controversy. An airing be-
fore the bar of public opinion is
a necessary first step in a demo-
cratic order, followed by changes
in the administrative set-up and
procedures that will reduce the
friction and tend to correct the
conditions that gave rise to the
condition.
In order to forestall some of the
same kinds of difficulties that may
be expected to recur indthefu-
ture, it may be wise to draw up a
tentative code of policies and pro-
cedures. As a starter, I would sug-
gest the following: No individual
board member will speak for the
board without authorization by it
and without consultation with the
editors.
