WASHINGTON-In his private
chambers at the Capitol, Vice-
President Henry Wallace gave a
luncheon in honor of the visiting
Vice -President-elect of Uruguay,
Dr. Alberto Guani.
When he rose to introduce Guani
to the select group of Senators,
Wallace said, "Dr. Guani, as Vice-
President of Uruguay. will have an
advantage over me, in that he will
be allowed to vote on all measures
and to speak in the debate.
"But his greatest advantage,"
added Wallace with a twinkle, "is
that members of the. Uruguayan
Senate are allowed to speak for
only one hour, except by unani-
mous consent, when they may
speak for only two hours."
Blood from Washington
Don't make any mistake about
what the people of Washington
are doing for the war. If you have
any doubts, go down to the Blood
Bank headquarters of the Red
Cross. Four hundred donors a day
is not unusual.
They come in blocs-for in-
stance, all the clerks and office
staff from Secretary of Agri-
culture Wickard's office; an-
other from the Tariff Commis-
sion; another from the Federal
Communications Commission.
One day a lady of about 70 came
in. This was her seventh blood
"It's about all I'm good for at
my age," she said, "but I want to
give all I can."
She gave a full pint of blood for
the Navy.
Red Army
United States military observers
explain Russian successes in terms
of a development not generally
realized in the United States-lib-

eration of the generals from po-
litical domination.
Under the system which pre-
vailed in Russia in the early
months of the war, the Red gen-
erals were responsible to the po-
litical commissars. This made
them over-cautious, prevented
daring, resolute action.
Then came the requirement that
commissars themselves take mili-
tary training and indoctrination.
Simultaneously their authority
over the generals was removed.
Now the Red Army is run by the
Red Army.

To Jason . ..
READ your article on Eastern cul-
ture as compared to Western and
Midwestern schools and culture.
Whatever made you think that a
person had to go to even a Midwest-
ern college to gain a degree of cul-
ture? This letter is written in very
much of a haste in explaining or
rather pointing out to you that a
person doesn't even have to go to
college to gain culture.
I've known people who never
went to any college or even attend-
ed school since they left high school
and the amount of friendship and
pleasure and grace they can put
into a mere 'hello' or nod of the
head would shame most any of
your Midwestern, Eastern, or
Scuthern cultured college people.
Culture is rather a hard thing to
stabilize for all groups and kinds of
people but the point I wish to be
emphasized is this, that how dare
you say that a person even has to
attend a college to be cultured. T,
and I believe even you, don't think
that is necessarily so.

New Deal Is Committed'
To Progressive Policy
THE N.R.P.B. social security proposals handed
to Congress by the President have lately
caused liberals and progressives to chafe at the
bit and call for action from Congress.
Calling the plan a first step in making the
post-war world, they have lauded the President
for proposing it and have urged him to make a
fight to the finish for it.
But the amusing part of the situation is that
the President has no intention of putting up a
fight to the finish for the plan right now.
There is no doubt that FDR supports the
NRPB's report and envisages its adoption a
few years hence, but he probably well realizes
that the 77th Congress will never enact it into
law in its present form.
President Roosevelt introduced the plan for
three main reasons: first, to allay the growing
fears of liberals, now alarmed at the State De-
partment's appeasement policy, that the admin-
istration is no longer progressive; second, to
show the American people that he understands
and has worked out a solution for post-war U.S.
domestic problems; and, third, to subtly open a
fourth term campaign.
THE PRESIDENT is desperately trying to clar-
ify the New Deal attitude on important na-
tional questions before 1944. He is trying to do
away with confusion and apathy prevalent
among American voters in 1942.
On the other hand, the Republicans are com-
mitted to the "back to normalcy" policy at
home and haven't as yet made up their minds
on whether to adopt Wendell Willkie's or Hoo-
ver's foreign policy line. Republican isolation-
ism, it must be remembered, cost us the peace
in 1918, and Republican domestic policies of
the 20's brought on the crash of 1929. A Re-
publican victory in 1944 is ahnost certain to
involve us in a mess at home and abroad and
will probably embroil us in a third World War.
The duty of liberals is to stress these facts.
Before 1944 the name Roosevelt and the word
"progress" must become as synonymous as Re-
publican and "reactionary" have been. The peo-
ple's slogan in '44 must be "Roosevelt for Peace
and Progress," and "Republicans for Disaster
and Reaction." - Ed Podliashuk
Students Are Urged To
Attend Summer Term
EVERY student on campus will receive this
week-end a questionnaire regarding their
plans for the coming summer. This is the first
step being taken by the University War Board
to provide adequate facilities for a summer term
to those who wish to participate in the acceler-
ated program.
Acceleration is the answer to the student who
feels he should in some way help his country to
win the war. By graduating earlier than would
be possible under the old four-year system, stu-
dents can offer their services in a variety of ways
as trained graduates. Taking a job in a defense
Plant during the summer months may seem to
be a more direct way of aiding the war effort, but

High School Is Eager
To Recruit Manpower
ANN ARBOR High School yesterday enthusias-
tically accepted the idea of a high school
manpower corps suggested to them by University
Manpower head Mary Borman.
The Student Council, decidedly in favor of
the plan, immediately prepared a motion for the
establishment of their own manpower corps pat-
terned after the campus Manpower Corps. Under
the suggested plan Ann Arbor High and other
city high schools who wish to follow will register
and classify all available manpower using the
campus Manpower equipment and will elect their
own Manpower director and student board.
Recruited high school manpower will work side
by side with University manpower in the hos-
pital, farm labor, building and grounds, laundry,
and restaurant projects and scrap drive to fill
these urgently needed positions.
The enthusiasm of the students of Ann Arbor
High School makes the apathy of University
students in answering Manpower calls this
semester even more conspicuous. This move
shows that the high school students are ready
and willing to help win the war. They are
accepting seriously and enthusiastically their
home front responsibilities. Their work should
be encouraged. - Marj Borradaile
U.S. Leadership Needed
To Win War and IPeace
ANOTHER criticism of the United States' for-
eign policy in conjunction with their hand-
ling of the war was brought up recently by Ian
Ross MacFarlane, newspaper man and commen-
tator for the Mutual Broadcasting System.
"If America doesn't take the leadership of
this war away from the British, we may lose
the war," and "If America doesn't take the
winning of this war away from the Russians,
we may lose the peace," were the two state-
ments by MacFarlane that bring out specifi-
caly the points on which the United States has
been called to account of late by administra-
tion critics.
MacFarlane stated that while Europe as a
whole has no confidence in the British, they
have an "exaggerated" confidence in the United
This fact is only too true. America has lauded
herself so often as the "arsenal of democracy"
that not only Europe but the whole world has
come to look upon her as their ultimate salva-
tion both during and after the war.
So what are we doing about it?
"Everyone in Europe is looking to America
for leadership in the direction of the war-and
so far all we have done is fiddle while Rome
burns," MacFarlane maintained.
AMERICA can't afford to leave the leadership
of the war to Britain and the fighting of it
to Russia, if we want any voice in the peace that
will be more important than the war.
We are attempting to liberate the conquered
nations of the world by defeating Hitler. But we
will never defeat Hitler unless we get started
soon, and we will never create a world free from
future Hitlers unless the nations of the world
feel that American democracy played a major

I'd Rather
Be Right
,VANT: Five thousand young Frenchmen have
armed themselves somehow and are fighting in
the mountains of the Haute-Savoie district. Mr.
Hoover chooses this moment to say that Ameri-
ca's contribution to the war lies along the lines
of keeping more Americans home to raise food.
(He says we are going to have a great respons-
ibility after the war, to feed the victims of com-
bat. Please, please, O.W.I., don't put that news
in leaflet form or drop it on the five thousand
fighting Frenchmen of Haute-Savoie. Please
don't tell them that our concern is lest they go
hungry two or three years from now.)
There is still so much that is irrelevant in the
American debate that it shakes the very founda-
tions of credulity.
Washington breaks into big noises over the
question of whether the world is to have an
international police force after the war to keep
order. Not a police expedition now, this min-
ute or at least this year, to go to the rescue of
the five thousand fighting Frenchmen of
Haute-Savoie. No; like Mr. Hoover and his
sandwiches for the world of the future, the
discussion takes a flying leap through time;
and in the week in which the war is resumed
in France and in which Kharkov falls to the
Germans, it wrangles over the minutiae- of how
we shall keep order when,praise be, there shall
be order again.
(Please, O.W.I., don't tell the fighting French-
men, dodging among the dynamited rocks of
Haute-Savoie, that our big debate is not about
racing to their sides right now; our big debate,
incredibly, is about whether it shall be safe for
us to stand beside them in one police force after
Hitler shall be dead.)
And Senator Wheeler says we cannot join in
any United Nations organization just yet, as
proposed in the splendid Hill-Hatch-Ball-Burton
resolution, because we do not know what Russia
Can there be any doubt by this time of what
Russia wants? She wants what de Gaulle
wants, what fighting Frenchmen of Haute-
Savoie want. Russia wants a second front.
But there is Senator Wheeler, cupping his ear.
Ile cannot make out what Russia wants.
(We must step carefully, he hints, because
maybe Russia wants to dominate the continent
of Europe. For a power which wants to domi-
nate the continent of Europe, Russia is singu-
larly anxious to have our armies invade it. In
this high, critical moment, with Kharkov gone,
she begs us to come. That, says Mr. Wheeler,
proves it; she is trying to keep us out of Europe.)
We are building this towering structure of
irrelevancy at a moment when the war makes
more sense than at any time since it began.
Hitler pulls twelve divisions out of France, for
the easte'n front, and instantly, in almost auto-
matic response, the French people move into the
military vacuum thus created. Sabotage is noted
from Rochefort to Lorient, from Brest to St. Paul
and Valence. The German finger lifts for a sec-
ond, and the dispersed young men of France
'coagulate into an army again.
Does not pressure in the west lift for us, too,
