Isolationism Not Dead..
Seemingly, Isolationism is not
dead on our campus. For of the
students polled this week, 47% ei-
ther do not want, or are indifferent
to, the Senate's enunciating now
a policy of post-war International-
Perhaps some of these students,
thinking that all post-war plan-
ning should follow victory, voted
thus because of the word now. But
if the United Nations hope to ef-
feet a durable peace, they, altho
concentrating on the prosecution
of the war, must recognize and
consider the singularly moment-
ous problems lying over the thresh-
old of victory. The mere product
of the peace table, undeveloped by
time, may well find people insuf-
ficiently prepared emotionally to
receive it-witness 1919. Further-
more, by passing of the Ball Reso-
lution, for example, the Senate
would not only indicate an aware-
ness of these problems, but would
provide an inspirational clarifica-
tion of our war aims.
However, it is likely that most
of these students are simply op-
posed to Internationalism. We are
appalled that so many fail to real-
ize that this is not just a war of
survival, but that we are commit-
ted to the ideals of the Atlantic
Charter. Our leaders have pro-
claimed to our servicemen that
they are fighting, not for a return
to "normalcy", but for a new world
based on cooperation. Wehave
been told, moreover, that a return
to Isolationism in tomorrow's world
is not only politically foolish but
economically impossible. And still
some of us adhere to it!
This shortsightedness on the
part of college students, presjim-
ably the leaders of tomorrow, por-
tends danger. If we really want
this to be a lasting peace, we must
accept our responsibility to think
clearly and realistically.

WASHINGTON, April 2.-Fear-
ing possible outbreaks in the coal-
mining states, the- War Depart-
ment has made secret preparations
to use troops if necessary.
But Ed McGrady, crack labor
adviser to the Undersecretary of
War, feels that the best way to
keep order in the mining dis-
tricts is to talk to the miners in
their own language. Formerly
Assistant Secretary of Labor, he
suggested to the War. Depart-
ment that instead of using
troops, he be commissioned as a
one-man army to keep order.
Accordingly, Ed McGrady has
left for the' coal areas, to keep his
finger on the pulse of the coal
miners-and to keep that pulse
Ladies First
At the White House, Mrs. Roose,
velt was chatting with Madame
Chiang Kai-shek. Said the First
Lady of the United States: "I was
offered $1,56b, to write a maga-
zine article giving my impressions
of you."
Smiling, the First Lady of China'
replied, "I was offered $3,000 to
write a magazine article giving
my impressions of you."
Both were ladies. They had both
declined to write about each oth-
Food Czar II
Friends who , know Chester
Davis, the new farm tar, say he
is the best qualified man for the
job-which probably is about the
toughest in the country.
But they also wonder whether
Davis is going to have the brass-
knuckles to put farms on a com-
plete war footing,
Chester, as he is called in Wash-
ington where almost everyone
knows andlikes him, is an Unusual
mixture.-When he was on the Na-

tional Defense Advisory Commit-
tee in the old pre-war days with
Big Bill Knudsen, he tangled with
Knudsen about the concentration
of war contracts in the hands of
a few big corporations. He wanted
them spread out among many
firms, as the British did. And his-
tory has proved he was right.
Chester Davis also bucked the
chemical trust when it moved
heaven and earth to block the pro-
duction of ammonia under the
TVA. And even in those early days
before Pearl Harbor he demanded
more farm production, with the
abandonment of crop controls.
Cotton Is Still King
On the other hand, Chester Davis
always has been a staunch Farm
Bureau man. And the Farm Bu-
reau Federation represents the
aristocracy of agriculture. Among
other things it represents the cot-
ton farmers, and the biggest nut
to crack in converting agriculture
to war basis is the cotton bloc.
At present the country has a
huge surplus of short staple cotton,
but because of the cotton bloc the
Government still is pegging the
price at a point where it is not
profitable to raise other crops. If
part of this huge cotton acreage
were diverted to corn, hogs, pea-
nuts, cattle, the food shortage
would disappear. The South can
grow almost anything. But Ed
O'Neal, President of the Farm Bu-
reau, most powerful farm lobby in
Washington, demands that the
price of cotton artifically be kept

most 51/2 million quarts of milk.'

Farm Bloc Activities
Threaten Firm Economy
D ESPITE the Senate's recent side-tracking of
the Pace Bill, the powerful farm bloc is still
holding an ace up its sleeve. Playing all the
angles of the game, the farm bloc intentionally
maneuvered a withdrawal of Pace's proposal,
which would add 14% to farm prices, in order
to better the chances of getting the Bankhead
Bill passed, which would increase farm prices
only 7%.
The farm leaders, realizing that the Adminis-
tration has them temporarily on the spot by link-
ing the farm price increase bills with the Lewis
demand for increased coal miners' wages, quietly
bowed out of the picture until the coal dispute is
settled-preferably in favor of the miners. After
Lewis's demands are satisfied, they can send the
Pace Bill back to the floor from the friendly
Senate Agricultural Committee which pigeon-
holed it.
UTWARDLY seething and inwardly smirking
.while biding its time, the farm bloc is now
devoting its efforts to force passage of the less
objectionable Bankhead Bill.
'But this bill, like the Pace proposal, would
alone break the price ceilings and make control
of wages impossible. The lid on the boiling
kettle of inflation would be removed once and
for all, and the Administration's task of trying
to keep our economy on a firm footing would
be made practically impossible.
These are activities which open-eyed Ameri-
cans should not ignore, for they represent a
minority attempt to pull wool over the eyes of
their countrymen.- Claire Sherman
Definite Post-War Policy
Favored by Student Poll
THE THIRD in a series of student opinion polls
on post-war problems sponsored by the Post-
War Council in conjunction with The Daily was
taken this week.
Following are the results of the poll with an
interpretative statement by Prof. James K. Pol-
lock of the political science department.
Question: Do you want the Senate now to
declare a policy for the United States to follow
after the war, declaring specifically our stand
on Internationalism?
Yes ............... .............52.08%
No........ .. ..............41.56%
No Opinion .... .................6.36%
Prof. Pollock's Analysis ..
THE MOST recent student opinion poll discloses
a rather close division of opinion on the cam-
pus about declaring at this time our policy to-
ward post-war international collaboration. The
Gallup Poll for the country as a whole showed a
much higher "yes" vote, and so did the poll of the
Natural Opinion Research Center in Denver and
the poll in the Woman's Home Companion on
similar topics. It seems that this campus has
rather serious doubts as to the ability of the Sen-
ate to help the situation at this time.
Perhaps thelarger point which underlies this
question. namely, whether present uncertainty
about America's probable post-war attitude is
weakening the unity of the United Nations and'
thus injuring the war effort, was not too clearly

College President Gives
Aims, Policies of NWLB1
(Editor's Note: The following article, stating the
aims and policies of the National war Labor Board,
was written especially for the collegiate press by
Dr. Frank Porter Graham, president of the Univer-
sltv f North Carolina, and a public memer of
twoWL#. ' i
IT IS TO ME significant and hopeful for the
future of freedom and democracy in America
that college students are keenly interested in
public affairs. The National War Labor Board
is one of the agencies which is grappling with
the hottest issues of industrial relations on the
home front.
Our country, already in the throes of industrial
travail in those dark December days of 1941, was
on Dec. 7 shaken to the very foundations of its
faith and life. Out of the shock of Pearl Harbor
was born the National War Labor Board. In the
National crisis, the President of the United States
called the epochal conference of the representa-
tives of labor and industry, who, with the public
co-chairmen, adopted the agreement that there
shall be no strikes and no lockouts for the dura-
tion of the war, and that all disputes shall be
settled by peaceful means before a national war
labor board.
No strike since that agreement has had the
sanction of a responsible leader of American
labor. In the year since that agreement the
loss in man-hours due to strikes in the war
industries was 6/100 of one per cent, one of
the most remarkable records in the industrial
history of our times. This record of compara-
tively no strikes and lockouts is due to the fact,
first that American labor and American bus-
iness are both in the main genuinely patriotic
and all out to win the war; and second, that
labor, management and the public have equal
representation, voice and weight in the con-
sideration and decision in all cases.
T HE INDUSTRY and labor members of the
Board go into the facts and merits of the
cases as they see them, with the public members
in between trying to be as objective, thorough
and fair as human limitations permit. Once the
decision has been made, the decision of the
majority becomes the decision of the Board with
the support of all members.
The National War Labor Board is the only
Government Board on which labor, industry
and the public have equal representation, voice
and voting power in both discussions and deci-
sions. With all its limitations and frustra-
tions, it is at once both a pioneer social device
for winning the war and a prophetic example
of the democratic idea for which the war must
be won.
THIS tripartite board has, in the interest of
maximum production for winning this war,
worked gropingly at first but relentlessly more
clearly toward a great two-fold stabilization:
first, the stabilization of union-management re-
lations through a balanced and fair maintenance
of membership provision voluntarily accepted by
the workers as a substitute for a fight to the
bitter end over the union shop; and second, the
flexible and fair stabilization of wages through
adjustments of maladjustments, gross inequities
and substandard wages in the interest of health,
efficiency and a more robust drive for winning
the war.

P"d Rather
Be Right
Danes have just been allowed by Germany to
vote. This little country, with less than 4,000,000
people, this tiny captive country has been given
a privilege which you in Italy do not have. Is it
not odd, Italians, that a little country which has
been captured by the axis should have rights
which the citizens of great Italy, full partner in
the axis, do not have?
Italians! Who is the master and who is the
slave? Is it not strange that the master coun-
tries of the axis are not permitted to have elec-
tions, while a slave country of the axis is allowed
to have them?
And now, Italians, you must ask yourselves
why this should be so. Why is the new order
so much kinder to Denmark than to Italy?
Italians! The reason is clear. The new order
fears Denmark's capacity to make trouble;
yes, even the capacity of a little country of less
than 4,000,000 people to maike trouble. Even
4,000,000 people can be dangerous, when they
are 4,000,000 people who have never disguised
their hatred; 4,000,000 who have promised
nothing to the masters.
Here is the paradox of conquest, Italians: The
masters feel they must do more for the slaves, to
keep them from rising, than they need do for you.
If an Italian stands up for his rights, another
Italian will arrest him, a third Italian will judge
him, and a fourth Italian will shoot him. But
Germany cannot find Danes to do this dirty work
in Denmark, so 4,000,000 Danes are more greatly
feared by the new order than 40,000,000 Italians.
Who need give any privileges to Italians? Who
has to worry about Italians? Italians are holding
down the Italians.
Italians! Of the Danish voters, 95 per cent
have voted against the Nazis. They have said
openly, at the voting places, what you only dare
to think secretly in the bottoms of your hearts.
And you are the masters, and they are the con-
It is a strange thing, Italians, how many
privileges even slaves can win, so long as they
do not accept their slavery. France lost. You
helped td defeat her. But because the French
would not accept slavery, the Vichy govern-
ment collapsed, and France now has spokes-
men among us, the Allies, to speak for her
people. You, the conquerors, the victors, d-6,
not even have that. Your government is the
only Vichy government that really works. It
holds Italy for Hitler, as he wanted Vichy to
hold France for him.
The clever stratagem that failed among the
conquered succeeds among the conquerors. Who
has won, Italians, and who has lost?
Italians! The Frenchmen, who have been con-
quered, do not have to go to Russia to fight. The
Danes can stay at home. They can even (by all
that is incredible under the broad sky over Eur-
ope!) stay home and vote. They can stay home
and say they don't like Nazis, while you have
the privilege of keeping your mouths closed and
marching to the eastern front.
And the Danes and Frenchmen have addi-
tional privileges. They have the privilege of
hoping that Russia will win. They have the
privilege of being dissociated from you in your
