War Bond Drive Should
Stimulate Steady Sale
THE NATION is concentrating on a "buy
bonds" week. Everywhere throughout the state
and the nation emphasis is being placed on the
part we all can play in financing this war.
All of us are becoming accustomed to seeing
movie shorts, reading advertisements, hearing
radio programs that inevitably ent with some
statement like "They give their lives; you can
give your money. Buy bonds." In fact it has
become so common that we don't think much
about it any more. The bond drive is an intensifi-
cation of this approach.
A WAR BOND drive with a colorful military
parade, speeches and rousing cheers
shouldn't be necessary to awaken the American
people to the necessity of buying war bonds.
But if this drive is to be of any effective help,
it must not be just an intensified period of
patriotism, but the starting point for regular,
effective bond buying.
It takes money to fight a war and to win it;
we have the soldiers doing the job, but it is our
task to keep buying bonds so that they can keep
FDR Gives Notice To
Farm Bloc and Labor
NOTICE HAS been served at last on the farm
bloc and labor that Roosevelt means business
in his fight against inflation.
His 'hold-the-line' order virtually indicates
that he is going' to put a stop to the wangling of
the two opposing factions, and that any demands
for further concessions will be met with the
strongest sort of Government resistence.
However, John L. Lewis, still obstructing the
nation's war effort, has declared his intention
that he is not giving any ground as a result of
the President's order concerning his $2 a day
wage increase demand for coal miners.
This can mean only one thing. The long
awaited fight between the Administration and
Lewis that has been brewing since.the Little
Steel Decision will come to a showdown. And
the President is determined to win the fight.
T HIS FACT alone should allay the fears of the
farm bloc that the President is going to con-
tinue 'soft' policy toward labor at the expense of
the farmers. The President's order should pave
the way for cooperation between agriculture and
the Administration, and if this should come to
pass, labor will not have the demands of the farm
bloc to fall back on as excuses for their own de-
This order, with stabilization placed on both
factors, means unity will be achieved. Con-
gress has viewed the executive order as an ab-
solute necessity, and the nation as a whole is
staunchly behind it.
The two remaining angles for completion. of
the stabilization policy, rationing and control of
excess purchasing power, have also been given
due consideration.
Is it purely coincidence that the Presidential
order, which has caused a marked drop in the
stock market, came just at the start of the na-
tional $13,000,000,000 bond drive?

I'd Rather
Be Right
NEW YORK, April 11.-Maybe we could make
it a custom that on two days a week, say Monday
and Tuesday, nobody discusses domestic issues,
either shortages or rationings. In addition to the
old idea of a Meatless Tuesday, we perhaps need
a don't-talk-about-meat-Tuesday.
That would be no attack on freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech includes freedom not to speak.
Or perhaps Congress might set aside one day
a week as foreign affairs day, during which all
speeches must concern themselves with such
to ics as the rising tide of revolution in France,
the need for unity among Yugoslavs, and why is
Goebbels crying?
I should dearly love to hear Representative Cox,
of Georgia, denouncing Dr. Robert Ley of the
Third Reich for his brutal treatment of labor.
There must be somebody besides union leaders
who misuses labor, and this would gie a kind of
balance to Mr. Cox's oratorly.
Thibet to Roosevelt
Mr. Hoffman, of Michigan, would probably
have to be watched. His gifts are such as to let
him go into an oration about the yield of midges
per acre of goats in Tibet, and bring M*r. Roose-
velt in before the end of the first paragraph.
I like old-fashioned political oratory, and I
would walk to Washington to hear any five of
dtfxbetterfinger-shakers do a job on Adolph
Be quite a thrill, too. Imagine the excite-
ment, as word traveled through the cloakrooms
that Senator Wheeler was on the floor, de-
nouncing Mussolini as a dictator.
Also appropriate, at a time when Congress is
anxious about the state of respect for representa-
tive institutions, would be a number of masterly
addresses on the fate of the German Reichstag
and the French Chamber.
In memoriam ceremonies for these bodies,
conducted sincerely and soberly by our own Con-
gress, should make a hit among the people of
the world.
Nye, Yish Might Speak
For just as newspaper men, as newspaper men,
and preachers, as preachers, have a direct, pro-
fessional interest in the defeat of Hitler, so Con-
gressmen, as Congressmen, have one also. I
play with the thought of a one-hour oration by
Ham Fish, extending the hand of brotherly greet-
ing to the democratic menibers of the old Ger-
man parliament, and denouncing the Fuehrer
for disrupting it without regard to seniority
He could be followed by Senator Nye, who
might say he has it on good authority that
Hitler is tied up with the German munitions
trust, and has, in fact, been financed by it.
We all know how Senator Nye hates munitions
makers. He could do a 'marvelous job on the most
arrogant group of munitions makers in the world,
those of the Ruhr. There is reason to suspect
that every one of these German arms makers is
an interventionist.
Some Short Speeches Also
At this point there could be inserted a series
of short, informative speeches, one pointing out
that Hitler definitely thinks we ought to concen-
trate on the war in the east, and a second estab-

YOU CAN get into some pretty good arguments
on this question of Negro instructors at the
University of Michigan, and on the wisdom of
discussing it all.
"People have been talking about things like
that for years, and they never got anywhere."
That's one attitude you run into, for instance.
It's in the minority, but it's there.
I'd call it defeatism, myself. It's the belief
that the only way things are done is by pulling
strings behind the scenes, and that the best
the little fellow can do is to sit back and take
his medicin. It's the conviction that there's
nouse in putting up a kick, even a tactful kick,
because people won't listen to you anyway.
It goes without saying that the kids who run
a student paper feel differently. If they hadn't,
they'd never have gotten up the energy to try out
for The Daily in the first place. It's interesting
that the leaders of the campus-Dave Matthews,
Dick Ford, Mary Jane Hastreiter, Norton Norris-
agree with The Daily, not with those who say "I
have no prejudice myself, but...
WE THINK that we have accomplished some-
thing more, by bringing up the case of Bill
Claytor, than letting off some steam. From here
in, it's out of our hands. But we hope that by
opening the subject up for discussion, by demon-
strating that students of the University would
support the appointment of a Negro to the facul-
ty, we've set the stage.
"Why bring it up now, while we're fighting a
That's the next question, and it's a serious one.
But it can be answered.'
We've been told that this war is different-
that it's more than the same old dog-eat-dog
set-up. That makes us think of ideals as more
than phrases in a history book. And so we
look for more than lip-service to democracy
from the great University we're attending.
As I've indicated before, we're getting more
than lip-service. This campus is cosmopolitan;
there are all races here, all creeds. Negro students
get a better break than at most other institutions.
But they, don't get the break they deserve. No
matter how brilliant they are, they don't get
appointed to the University faculty.
NEGROFS ON this campus know what's going,
on. (When I think of the swell fellows that I
mean by that statement, I'm ashamed to group
them like that, with the discriminating phrase,
"Negroes on this campus;" but I hope they won't
mind if I do it for the purposes of this column.)
There are good Negro graduate students here at
the present time. One's a Hopwood winner; an-
other took over a Poli Sci class for one period,
and did a swell job of it. But they all feel that
they can't even apply for a position-they'd just
be putting the faculty on the spot, and what
would be the use.
So this isn't an academic question. If you
think it is, go around and ask a few of these
fellows. And, by the way, they didn't start this;
the pampaign has been The Daily's from start
to finish. But, if you ask them, they'll tell you.

tained and guaranteed until the com-
munity is adequate. Within any so-
ciety struggling to attain democracy,
the community must be such that it is
more easy to grow the Christian vir-
tues than to miss them. When the
child finds it more interesting to pre-
serve the peace and advance the se-
curity than to steal propertycreate
discord and clash vits with the law,
then normal growth will cure juvenile
The question then of living the
social science we profess is not a
major but a must. In correspond-
ence with his emphasis, there are in
the Catholic fellowship in the
Americas to use but one illustration,
various direct attempts to create
One of the rewarding efforts is
demonstrated by the ministry of a
rare man, now seriously ill, Father
LeFevbre of Ypsilanti, formerly of the
Strathmore area, Detroit. In his use
of the St. Vincent de Paul society, he
has lay support. He has travelled
among the people of these two par-
ishes, interpreting, planning, plead-
ing and joking as well as praying,
until his influence has reminded
leaders and people of these commun-
ities of St. Francis.
A second approach is within the
labor movement. Priests have been
named and trained to offer a
Christian Interpretation to those in
the Unions, to live the life and
unify the person. How shall we
understand such movements? How
lower the walls of sectarian criti-
cism which prevent community?
How spread the influence of these
"centers" to which Maritain refers?
To stretch such minor illustrations
to a national scope is the stagger-
ing challenge before democracy.
To make it international is the
ideal. However, there are experi-
ences in these local attempts which
have significance.
EVERY community which expects
to guarantee unity of the person-
ality to its members would seem to
need: (1) to have that disinterested-
ness which is apparent in the research
laboratory at its best, applied to each
social enterprise; (2) possess a pur-
pose which is emotionally effective as
well as significant in the objective
worlds; (3) need to be capable of
being understood or at least readily
accepted by other sectarians or
parties or disciplines; and (4) need
to accept, as all going social recon-'
structions do accept, the existence of
an adequate norm, an ultimate.
"The course of history," "the law
of economic existence" "our Fuehrer
can not be wrong," "our emperor is
the one born of heaven" - are the
norms in vogue and these are inade-
quate. Democracy originally accepted
God as viewed by the Judeo-Chris-
tion tradition as its norm. Every ef-
fort to create community and thereby
give unity and completeness to per-
sons must reach a religious depth or
stop short of its goal.
