GOAL -$1,500:
Tag Day Drive Will Give
Boys Month Vacation
LET'S GIVE the kids a chance.
Tomorrow four hundred students will be on
hand to sell tags that will send a boy to camp
for a month.
The University of Michigan Tag Day drive,
now a twenty-three-year-old tradition, has a
goal of $1,500-enough to give 300 boys from
Detroit and metropolitan areas a four-week
vacation at the University Fresh Air Camp near
We don't have to be reminded that juvenile
delinquency is on the upswing. Every news-
paper, every magazine has some comment or
suggestion to make on the problem. Many of
the boys who are sent to the camp by social
agencies have already started the path to crime.
Many have not yet found their niche in life;
some have been able to adjust themselves to
their environment.
The problem of juvenile delinquency is par-
ticularly serious in the larger cities, and it is
this area which the University camp serves.
It is not impossible to understand why some
of the boys get started on the wrong road. They
have had nothing but the streets for a play-
ground; they have spent their time in the pool-
ropms. Many of those kids have never seen a
real woods or fished in a lake or gone on an over-
night camping trip.
Just by contributing our dime or quarter or
half-dollar tomorrow in the Tag Day drive, we
University students can give the kids a chance
for their first real vacation. - Virginia Rock
Closing Doors on Press
Is Rank Totalitarianism
IN THE CONDUCTING of a war to bring free-
dom to the peoples of the earth, the U.S. is
adopting a totalitarian policy which is so direct-
ly opposed to the very principles of freedom that
the avowed purpose of the war can only be as-
sumed a peculiarly ironic joke.
President Roosevelt's decision to exclude the
press from the United Nations Food Conference
at Hot Springs, Va. on May 18 not only smacks
of the swastika'but is a direct about-face from
the American democratic ideals which this coun-
try has followed ever since the Revolution.
The newspapers of America are the chief
source of public information. Without them the
people of this nation are as much in doubt as to
the policies of the Administration they elected
as are the people of Germany. By excluding the
representatives of the press from the Conference
the President is taking a page right out of Hit-
ler's book.
The question of whether the people of a nation
should have a voice in the government of their
country and a right to know what that govern-
ment is doing is supposedly one of the issues of
the war. By denying America the right to know
what decisions will be made on so vital a matter
as the handing out of their food supply is an
outrageous violation of the "guaranteed" free-
dom of the American press.
Reporters are not even going to be allowed to
sit in on the Conference, according to the pres-


Take 49t
Or ,/eave fit
By Jason ,

AS MY ROOMMATE SAYS, they're making you
actually want to join the Army.
First they kick you out of the East, Quad to
make room for the Air Corps. That's O.K.; the
soldiers need the place, and there's nothing
wrong with the West Quad that time won't cure.
I didn't like to move too much, of course, but
you can stand anything once.
Then the Army actually moves in, and every
second male you see on campus seems to be in
uniform. Makes you feel a little funny at first,
but you get used to it.
The war comes a little closer to home,
though, when you and your roommate walk
into Physics class at 8 o'clock one morning
and find the Army there ahead of you. You
blink sleepily at the rows of uniforms. Your
instructor says, "Shhh... this is the Army!"
and gently tells you that from now one some-
one else is taking over his class-up the stairs,
two doors to the left.
That was a tough break, you figure. Particu-
larly seeing as how he never took attendance.
THIS is only the beginning. They take your
dorm. They take your physics prof. They
ration food, and that really hurts, particularly
the way I eat. But there's more to come.
First, rumors start creeping in: "Saw her last
night with a soldier." You find out why you've
been having a little trouble recently.
Then. the parties start. Sororities, dorms,
Betsy Barbour, Jordan, Mosher-they all begin
entertaining soldiers. Practical patriotism in
a big way, particularly at the League, where
the hostesses wait with bear traps, 'tis said.
Stories in The Daily. Headlines, supplements,
features: "Soldiers Miss Women after 12:30 ..."
We civilians feel sort of left out at that point.
Particularly when Sunday's Detroit Times
comes out with a full page spread on Michigan's
Army men. Most students are in uniform, they
tell us. "Tripping downstairs with Miss Mary
Leigh Hughes are Pvt. David Engel and Pvt.
Ernest Leonardi" (under picture of privates trip-
ping, etc.) These ROTC cadets are men to
watch .. .
You guessed it, I'm jealous. I'm here for
another month, due to the accidents of war,
and I'm beginning to feel like a coal miner at
a Harvard class reunion.
THERE IS one place, though, I thought I could
sneak away to, when the uniforms get too
thick and they begin posting MP's around Jordan
Hall. It's a place where you go to enjoy the
beauties of spring and stuff like that.
I figured that, in the Arboretum, you could get
away from it all, and forget about the war, for
an hour or two. (This assumes I could get a
date-right now, I'm beginning to wonder.) That
would be one place you could have a little ri-
But, according to latest reports, the war has
hit even the Arboretum. The hills, a friend of
mine found, are covered with ten-year-olds, de-
fending Bataan. Most common are "hand gren-
ades" (beer cans on a stick.) The ringleader
they call "MacArthur;" after thoroughly dis-
turbing my friend's privacy, he told his followers,
finally: "back again next Saturday, same time."

I'd Rather
The Germans have taken a large district in
Western Hague, and converted it into a fortress.
The Dutch owners thereof have been tossed out,
paid off in paper. This is part of the process now
going on in the northern French coast, in the
Balkans, on the Riviera. Hitler is completing
"Festung Europa," his Fortress of Europe. The
man who proved that walls are no good is build-
ing a wall around a continent.
And only now there is released a secret
speech which Prime Minister Churchill de-
livered to the coal miners of Great Britain
last October 31. In this speech the Prime Min-
ister cited "stalemate" in the war as one of
the chief dangers facing Britain. Mr. Church-
ill said that Hitler was building his European
fortress, hoping it would hold for years, until
the grand alliance would disintegrate, until
the Allies would grow tired, fall out among
themselves, and make a compromise peace.
That speech was delivered during the very
week in which the clamor for a second front
was at its height. Eight days later, American
forces invaded French North Africa. That action
hushed the second front debate for the winter.
There is no explanation as to why the speech
is released now. It could be an indirect reply to
Spain's suggestion for a negotiated peace. Citing
something somebody said twenty-six weeks or
twenty-nine years ago is a favorite diplomatic
Mr. Churchill has recently lunched in state at
Spanish Embassy in London, thereby rather put-
ting himself out of position for telling the Span-
ish government that it knows what it can do. But
now it goes into the record that Mr. Churchill,
glaring into the future as recently as last Oc-
tober, foresaw a stalemate as in some respects
the most "insidious" danger facing the Allies.
First invasion was our danger; invasion of
England, of the Western Hemisphere. Now our
prospects have improved to the point where
stalemate is the danger.
And Festung Europa is being built, and Hitler
is waiting for certain processes to take effect
in the west; weariness, political disagreement,
perhaps change of administration; he is hoping
that a full, long, slow dose of time, taken raw,
may alter some of our ideas.
At this point, we have to take stock to see
which processes in American life (I will let the
English speak for themselves) aid in the creation
of stalemate. There are so many of them that
they hit the anxious searcher after truth full in
the face.
One is that persistent endeavor to turn our
attention away from Europe to far greater
concentration on the war in the Pacific. The
war in the Pacific deserves our most anxious
attention. The writer of these lines was, in
fact bewailing our sale of oil to Japan at a
time when the "pro-MacArthur isolationsts"
of today were wholly uninterested in either
war. But to pull any part of our forces away
from Europe now is exactly what the Festung
Europa needs. It is startling that some opion-
eers have even used the bestial murder of
American airmen by Japan as .iust one more

WASHINGTON, April 29.--Here
is what happened behind the
scenes last week in the coal mine
negotiations which made John L.
Lewis so boiling mad.
Charles O'Neill, representing the
Northern coal operators, flatly re-
fused to make any counter-pro-
posals to the United Mine Work-
ers' demand for a $2 a day in-
crease. Lewis had proposed that
even if the coal operators couldn't
meet those demands, they should
offer something and then, by con-
tinued negotiations, it might be
possible to find a basis for agree-
"Offer us something, even if it's
only two cents a day increase,"
pleaded the big miner, "so we'll
have something to negotiate on."
"No, we're standing pat," replied
O'Neill, knowing he had President
Roosevelt behind him, also want-
ing to get the dispute before the
War Labor Board. "We will agree
to no wage increase."
"All right, will you offer counter-
proposals to some of our other de-
mands, not involving money?"
Lewis persisted.
This met with another turn-
down from O'Neill, who had in-
sisted almost from the start of
conciliation talks in New York
that the mine dispute be turned
over to "the War Labor Board.
And he knew that any counter-
proposal by him would delay ref-
erence to the Board.
"Well, if that's the way you feel
about it, you know our position,"
exploded Lewis.
Post-War Plans . .
It seems to be the vogue to do
post-war planning now, and I'd like
to put in my two cents' worth.
The world would be divided up
into the following groups:
1. The British Empire, composed
of the British Empire as it existed
in pre-war days, plus the domin-
ions, plus the United States, and
its territories (the United States
could become a member "jut like
Scotland"). My, what a beautiful
union of English speaking peoples.
Isn't that what Big Bob McCor-
mick wants?
2. The so-called yellow races, the
Japs, and Chinese, etc., all forming
one jim dandy union. Then the Japs
could say no more about relieving
China of its white overlords. You
see, there would be no more Chinese
to be maltreated.
3. The South American countries
must remain separate, because they
might become imperialistic.
4.mEverybody else can go straight
to the devil. Except, of course,
that all countries should form an
alliance against big bad Russia,
and fight a most "glorious"war in
which Communism and bureaucra-
cy are completely and finally driv-
en from the earth. Amen!
After that we'd establish a system
to provide money for all the rich,

and to tax the poor. In that way,
there would be no more poor-every-
body who is poor would starve to
death-and the world would be such
a nice place to live in-only rich peo-
ple. Glory hallelujah!
We must be careful, though, that
$UREAUCRACY doesn't come
again into our glorious govern-
ment. If you want to know what
bureaucracy is, look in your daily
Hearst paper. So help me, you
can't miss it. You see, in my world
we eliminate all governments. Sim-
ple, isn't it?
You'll then ask, what about the
different governments that I already
set up. The answer is this. After
they've been set up (the United
States part of Britain, etc.) they
have become inefficient, so we must
abolish them and do away with bur-
Well, after that, we close our
doors and try to become self-suffi-
cient. However, it doesn't work.
So, we have an exciting, bang-up
war with only about 5 millions dy-
ing, and then we conclude a peace,
and start again from scratch. Isn't
it lots of fun?
