83 DAYS:
C.I.O. Men Beat Rick's
Record-Still Like Unions
This is to inform you that you are no longer
record-holder for "days -spent-on -a-liferaft."
Three men, two of them C.I.O. unionists,
spent 83 days on the ocean before they were
rescued, four times as long as your sojourn.
By the standards established by your own
supporters, their statements ought to hve four
times the weight of yours, and here's what one
of them, Basil D. Izzi, a member of the C.I.O.
Textile Workers' Union, now of the U. S. Navy,
had to say:
"I remember how trade union leaders used
to work to keep us all aware of why we should
keep production rolling, to beat the Japs and
"All I can say is I know you guys are doing
a job, and doing it well. Keep it up. We've got
the so-and-so's (Rickenbacker take note) on
the run. I guess I don't need to tell you N.M.U.
(National Maritime Union, C.I.O.) guys any-
thing. You'll keep 'em sailing."
SO IF YOU want to continue peddling your
anti-labor, anti-union bunk, Mr. Rickenback-
er, here's a suggestion:
Take a liferaft, row out to the middle of the
Pacific Ocean, and spend another 63 days out
at sea-this time concentrating on unions-and
if you don't change your tune if and when you
come back, you'll have recaptured the "days-
spent-on-a-liferaft" record and be able to ped-
dle your poison in peace.

U.S. Protects Business
But Prosecutes Labor
FROM ALL indications, it seems that the gov-
ernment is protecting big business and capital
interests, while it is loosening all its wrath and
fury on eight men Friday arrested on charges
of sabotage.
The cry of sabotage was raised when it was
discovered some weeks ago the Carnegie-Illinois
Steel Co. and Anaconda Wire and Cable were
producing defective war goods.
To date these companies, representatives of
American capitalism have not been prose-
cuted while eight men arrested in Baltimore
by the FBI face criminal proceedings.
We want to fight this war on an idealistic
basis, our leaders have told us, and we will make
sure that everybody gets a fair deal. Where is
the fairness or equality in this situation?
We are not advocating leniency for these
eight welders. If it is proved that they com-
mitted an act of sabotage, they deserve what-
ever punishment the law prescribes. What we
want is fair and equal justice and the same
punishment for Anaconda and Carnegie-
BOTH THE latter have admitted their guilt,
but the FBI seems to have passed up the
whole affair. If our fighting men die because a
cable snapped or a ship was fitted with weak
steel'plates; or if they die because those ship
weren't welded properly, the result is the same.
But as long as big business committed the
crime it seems perfectly al right for them to
remain unpunished. Why these two companies
have not been prosecuted is a question the

LEAVE IT TO Gerald L. K. Smith.
He'll usually run true to form, and this
one-charged to his "followers." is no exception:
"Incensed by a poem entitled 'Goodbye
Christ,' written by Langston Hughes, Negro
poet, 35 women members of the America First
Party directed by Gerald L. K. Smith, formed
a picket line in front of Wayne University
Wednesday where Hughes spoke at a student
Although several of the pickets, who termed
Hughes an "atheistic Communist," attended the
lecture, they caused little. disturbance for they
found nothing in his talk to protest.
Hughes apologized to the thousands of stu-
dents crowded into the auditorium for the
picket line and explained that the protested
poem was merely a satirical sketch on the mis-
use of religion .
THAT'S THE WAY this picketing of a dis-
tinguished Negro poet was described in
Thursday's Detroit News. The story uses con-
servative language, but the implications are all
We couldn't track down a copy of "Goodbye
Christ" in time to make this column-besides
we've got a date tonight. But, judging from
"Shakespeare in Harlem," a collection of light
verse by Hughes, this poet has considerable on
the ball. For instance, if you ever want to tell
somebody to quit snoring, how could you phrase
it better than:
Baby. Please!
Please don't snore so loud.
You jest a little bit, o' woman but you
Sound like a great big crowd.
Of course, an atheist and a Communist could
say that, but he wouldn't exactly be propagand-
izing for his creed. And, regardless. of his po-
litical beliefs, he'd be worth listening to, if he
expressed the whimsical, yet tragic, philosophy
of the American Negro as well as Hughes can.
NOT, OF COURSE, that Hughes is either an
atheist or a Communist. As the story in the
News implies, the followers of Gerald L. K.
Smith probably just saw the title "Goodbye
Christ," and headed grimly for Wayne Univer-
That reminds me of the attitude of certain
individuals around here, to bring the thing
close to home. They'll see a headline in The
Daily. They're busy people, of course they
wouldn't have time to read the story. So,
without trying to realize the purpose of the
article, without even reading what they're
protesting about, they'll begin to label The
Daily as "radical . . . dangerous . . . crack-
pot . .,. RED . . ." And so it goes.
It's not only The Daily. If Bertrand Russell
gives a lecture on mathematical philosophy here,
it's the same hue and cry.
There are two ways to deal with the individ-
ual who's making this kind of a protest. You
can duck him, dodge around corners: and make
sure that you never invite Bertrand Russell here
again (or never again print that kind of story
in The Daily.) That way, you avoid trouble.
Or you can take Hughes' approach-you
can explain to him that you're not a Com-

I'd Rather
NEW YORK, April. 18.-The German people
will learn democracy when they realize that
nothing else will save them. They will not learn
it sooner. They will not learn it any other way.
They will not learn it from our teachers. They
will not learn it from our books. They will learn
it from their own troubles, or theywill go under
without learning it.
They are going to learn it in the same way
in which Americans are learning that isolation
does not work. A people learns- a truth when it
butts its head into a stone wall while living Wiith
a lie.
The approach of which we have heard so
much lately, that we. shall send teachers over,
who will teach democracy to the Germans with
lantern-slide and pointer, is an Incredible
fantasy. It will make every spitball thrower in
Germany a patroit.
It is also curiously, vaguely timeless, for it
supposes that history will stop while this educa-
tional process goes on; that the Germans will
take ten years out, so to speak, in a state of sus-
pended animation, while they learn to behave
The plan also supposes that we have no his-
tory, either. What will our teachers teach? Will
they denounce Franco? Will they say Hitler was
wrong to have friendly relations with him? But
we have friendly relations with him now, and
we might have them after the war. One of the
bright boys in the class might ask a question
which would send teacher wiring frantically to
the State Department for further instructions.
No, let us get the problem out of the beauti-
ful, prim world of Greek columns, out of the
timeless void of academic space, in which we
have so casually placed it. Actually, the prob-
lem of educating Germany for democray
must be placed right back ito its setting,
which is precisely the, sweating, blisterin
world of 1943 and 1944, in all its feverish and
intricate detail.
German democracy. is not going to start in
the assembly room, after a democratic selection
on the organ. It will probably start around the
campfires of a civil war. Civil wars are not nice.
The temptation upon us to curb this one, .when
it begins to "restore order," will be enormous.
After having, possibly, saved the skins of Ger-
many's anti-democratic elements, those who
financed and aided Hitler, we may then have a
try at our dream of "educating the Germans
for democracy." But if anti-democratic ele-
ments are routed out of German life (perhaps
put to work in labor batallions, rebuilding the
continent they wrecked) German schools will
take care of themselves. A way of life can always
teach itself, once it is established.
It is silly to assume that the Germans made
an anti-democratic "choice" or "mistake," out of
which they must now be elaborately educated.
German democracy was defeated in a naked
struggle for power. That process must be un-
wound. The power relationship on the home
front must be reversed. Our contribution to
German education is not to teach in German
schools, but to knock fascists out of control
of those schools, no matter how well-camou-
flaged, ornamental, or personable they may

IDomfinic Says
To develop, men need action; to
act, men need .faith; to keep faith,
men need ,eason; to direct all
three, men, need vision of excel-
lence; and all this is empty unless it
is pervaded by love; and love is ac-
tve and outgoing." So read the elev-
enth article of a report adopted by
the New Education Fellowship at the
close of its international gathering
in Ann Arbor, in July, 1941. The
question is, what do we mean by
Three usages come quickly to the
western mind. (1) The love of par-
ent for child and the returning ador-
ation of the child for the parent.
'(2) 'The tender and possessive re-
gard of a man and a maid for each
other and its goal of marriage. (3)
The self-effacing and disinterested
will of a great person for some chal-
lenging human end whereby the
ethical values of an altruistic act
takes precedence over every self-pre-
serving drive either native or learned.
Though the first two aspects of love
takes place on a narow stage, this
third phase is possible of almost in-
finite range in human society.
"Love suffereth long and is kind
Love envieth not; love vaunteth not
It is not puffed up
Love never faileth
Bt whether there be prophecies,
they shall fail
Whether there be tongues, they shall
Whether there be knowledge, it shall
vanish away
And now abideth faith, hope, love
these three.

But the greatest of these is love."
Corinthians, Chapter XIII
