Bonds For Homecoming-
Congrats, IFC, Pan-Het
FC-Pan-Hel's voluntary abandon-
Iment of customarily extravagant
hbme-coming decorations outside fraternity and
sorority houses is the most effective, most war-
conscious contribution made by these institutions
to the national effort.
Their decree that money ordinarily spent for
lavish displays, and that assessments ordinarily
made for home-coming house dances should be
invested in war bonds and stamps far out-strips
previous flag-flying attempts at patriotism.
Because the effort is voluntary we commend
John Fauver, Virginia Morse and the other lead-
ers of these two campus organizations. And, to
these and those that they represent, the war-
minded collegian must say, "Thanks for your
contribution. Now let's go to it."

Save Those Youngsters
From Restaurant Work
ST 'WAS WELL PAST 9 p. m. when we
walked into the restaurant for a cup
of coffee. With the shortage of help it was almost
amazing to find one open at that hour. Behind
a large white apron appeared a blond haired boy,
no older than 10 or 11.
Every customer's eye was on the lad as he chas-
ed orders and manned the cash register. Some
joked with him and called him "cute". They were
justified, too, for the boy did have a way about
him. But it was pretty late and an occasional-
yawn wrinkled the youngster's face.
-Seeing such a young boy doing a "man size"
job started two of the customers talking about
the labor situation with special emphasis on
Ann Arbor. It goes without saying that we have
all felt the labor shortage here. Few restaur-
ants can serve us at the hours when we are
accustomed to having a snack or cup of coffee.
The two customers argued whether proprietors
are justified in employing "kids" to work as wait-
ers and kitchen help now that few other persons
are available. One maintained that the more chil-
dren we can get to work in restaurants the more
men there will be for defense industries.
"NATtMALIY I don't mean they should over-
work the kids," the man explained between
helpings of pie, "but restaurant work isn't too
difficult. Anyway the kids are trying to help in
the war effort and helping where there is a
shortage of labor is just as important as collect-
ing scrap and selling war bonds."
"Guess you've been reading Orphan Annie
again," was the only reply from the other cus-
tomer. Maybe he had more sense than his
friend, and maybe he wasn't concerned with
the problem.
There is more than one restaurant in Ann Ar-
bor that is employing child labor. Throughout
the Nation the number is enormous. Children as

To the Editor:
THIRTY-ONE YEARS have elapsed
..since the Republic of China came into
being. In these three short decades she has sur-
vived numerous ill-winds and storms-at first
from within and then from without-that rose
to threaten her existence, but the greater the
threat, the stronger she seems to grow.
Today, in the midst of her bloodiest strug-
gle, with the enemies scattering death and
destruction on an ever-increasing scale, China
is reaching the apex of her power.
Dr. Sun's dream of a politically united China
was far from realized when the success of the
Wuchang revolt, of October 10, 1911, brought in-
stantaneous response from the people to free
themselves of the Manchu domination. Almost
immediately after the formation of the national
government at Nanking, Dr. Sun and his follow-
ers had 'to contend bitterly against the ambitions
and treacheries of Yuan Shih-kai, the new pres-
ident in whose favor Dr. Sun had resigned.
THEN FOLLOWED a period of war-lords and
opportunistic politicians, and the whole na-
tion sank into a hell of indescribable chaos and
misery. After General Chiang came to power in
1928, the civil war broke out between Kuomin-
tang members and the Communists, and many
lives were lost to no purpose.
Not until the Jatianese invasion of Manchur-
ia in 1931 did China suddenly awake to reality
and realize the value and necessity of national
The presence of a common foe has drawn the
large dissenting household together into one
solid unit, arming it with an iron will and iden-
tity of purpose never surpassed in any other era
since the dawn of Chinese civilization.
THE DOUBLE TEN of thirty-one years ago
marked the beginning, not the end of Dr. Sun's
work. Thousands of things need to be done after
the present entanglement has been cleared up:
industrialization, education and democratization
of the masses, purification of polities*(if politics
could ever be purified), abolition of clique-ism
and favoritism in public duties, raising of the
standard of living, scientific and technical im-
provement and perfection, and a thousand other
things which must haunt the imagination of us
young people who are conscious of the duty and
responsibility we owe to our country and to man-
kind at large.

I'd Rather
Be Right_
NEW YORK-Wendell Willkie has made him-
self a world figure in three weeks. That is a sign
of how much room there is at the top.
He has done this by saying a number of simple,
ordinary things, things which are said at thous-
ands of dinner tables, things which are thought
by thousands of minds. Only he has broken with
peddlers of cant and dispensers of mushmouth
talk to say these things out loud. He stands today
as the best white spokesman for the aspirations
of Asia. And he has clearly become the spokes-
man of the most aggressive win-the-war forces
in the west.
His is a curious position. History may call
him the first United Nations statesman; a man
without power in any country, who has sud-
denly developed enormous power in all free
He has spoken in each country as if he lived in
it. Is that bad? Another week of it and he will be
the unofficial President of the United Nations.
He is already the closest bond linking us, next to
When a man is abruptly whirled to such a posi-
tion as this, in a matter of days and hours, we
may be sure that great, unchannelized political
forces are loose on earth, struggling for outlet.
There is that dull ache in the west, that con-
sciousness, almost like a feeling of sin, that we
have for ten years been too slow, too late, and
may be too slow, too late again. That feeling has
never found a leader. The natural opposition in
this country, which might have given it expres-
sion, has too often chosen, instead, to assure a
sick world it needs a sales tax.
There is, further, a sparking impatience around
the world with our wooden complacency on the
colonial question, our policy of drift and defense,
our pathetic endeavor to save as much as possible
of the old world, though we have lost half of it;
a river of impatience which now runs from the
humblest peasant's hut in China to the floor of
the House of Commons in London.
How odd, that the last Presidential candi-
date of the Republican party in the United
States should become the man to head up all
these forces simultaneously. That is what is
As a result, Wendell Willkie is riding the hot-
test horse in the race. Nothing can stop him, be-
cause the forces behind him are valid forces.
Somewhere on the road, he has met the demo-
cratic upsurge, and he has recognized it.
That is all that is necessary to make a man
great. The world will make any man great who
reads its aspirations correctly. You cannot in-
vent this stuff. You have to feel it. Willkie has
merely read the faces of plain people from Los
Angeles to London to China, and has thus been
moved to ask for a second front, a world-wide
offensive, a free China, a political offensive to
win the common man, and a timetable for the
end of colonialism in the Pacific. He has become
suddenly powerful, not because he is a charming
man, but because he has read it right, and said
it straight.
The Willkie trip is aturning-point in the
war. It has synthesized discontents around the

WASHINGTON-The President
called Senator Scott Lucas of Il-
linois to the White House the
other day to thank him for his
two-fisted support of the Adminis-
tration's anti-inflation bill.
He also told the able young Il-
linoian about some of his exper-
iences on his cross-country in-
spection tour, one of which was
apropos of the inflation fight in
Congress. It dealt with the prob-
lem of disastrous shortage of farm
labor and resultant crop short-
ages unless farm parity prices were
"The manpower problem isn't as
serious as a lot of people are try-
ing to make us believe, Scott," the
President remarked. "I'm convin-
ced we'll be able to lick it in the
American way - if we all put our
shoulders to the wheel."
To illustrate, the President cited
a story he had heard while on the
West Coast. The California fruit
crop was seriously threatened this
year due to a labor shortage after
the evacuation of Jap fruit work-
"No crop was harder hit than
prunes," the President said. "It
looked for a while as if no prunes
would be picked, and they would
be left to rot. But just in the nick
of time, the people of three or
four towns in the area got together
and resolved to do something about
"Almost everybody in those
towns, young and old, city offic-
ials and business people, rich and
poor alike, grabbed buckets and
headed for'the orchards. As a re-
sult, the prune crop was saved.
That's the spirit of cooperation
America was built on, and the kind
that will win this war.
Naval Congressmen
Until the White House decreed
that Congressmen could not serve
in the Army or Navy, Represen-
tative Francis Walter, Democrat
of Pennsylvania was a lieutenant
commander in naval aviation. He'
had served in naval aviation in
War I, so immediately after Pearl
Harbor he was placed in command'
of a naval air base south of Nor-
folk, Va.
There, one of his jobs was to
develop new runways and improve
the field. But, unable to get suf-
ficient concrete, he wrote to the;
commanding admiral at Norfolk
suggesting the use of black top
for the runways. The runways
were needed in a hurry, because
planes were necessary for patrol-
ling the Atlantic Coast against
However, the Norfolk comman-
der referred the matter to the
Bureau of Naval Aeronautics in
Washington; the Bureau of Aero-
nautics referred the question to
the Bureau of Yards and Docks;
the Bureau of Yards and Docks re-
ferred the proposal to the Bureau
of Shore Establishments; the Bur-
eau of Shore Establishments sent
the letteron toathe commander
of the 5th Naval District, who
finally sent it back to "Lt. Comdr.
Walter for his apiproval."
So, after weeks of delay, Walter
went ahead and fixed up his air-
plane runways with black top.
Representative Walter, now back

in Congress, points out that one
of the chief reasons for naval
delays and inefficiency is the ne-
cessity of reporting back to Wash-
ington. He has suggested to the
Navy Department that individual
admirals in charge of bases are.
quite capable of making such de-
cisions, and shouldnothave to
consult Washington on every
For instance, Walter found that
many naval gunners sent to sea on
merchant ships to protect sub-
marines, never fired a shot before.
So he wanted to train them and,
to do so, proposed building a skeet
shooting range. But when he found
he had to go through the rigma-
role of asking Washington, he
simply appropriated the necessary
materials, signed for them and
built the range.
Rockefeller's Newspaper
When Nelson Rockefeller walk-
ed through the streets of Rio,
Santiago, and Bogota, he found
newsboys hawking an illustrated
magazine called, "En Guardia."
The young millionaire took a few
centavos from his pocket and
bought copies in each capital.
He didn't tell the newsboys, but
he himself is publisher of "En
Guardia" - "On Guard." As Co-
ordinator of Inter-American Af-
fairs,, he sponsors this and othlier
