In a discussion entitled "Are We
Fighting in A Revolution?" Prof.
William B. Willcox of the history
department states, "The meaning of
our struggle hinges on whether it is
revolution or just another war." In
attempting to find an answer to this
question he selects a criterion of
judgment which assumes that there
are three stages in revolution: 1) a
normal process of growth and
change; 2) obstruction to this
growth; 3) removal of the obstruc-
Prof. Willcox believes that the
significant aspect of change in our
time is the growth in democracy.
There is a growing trend toward
"increasing the security of the
masses through action by the
state," that is, government regula-
tion of the economic life of the
The second phase in revolution,
obstruction to growth and change, is
evidenced in the internal opposition
of conservatives to democratic evolu-
tion and the external assault of
Nazism and communism. Prof. Will-
cox says that we are now in the
third phase of revolution-the re-
moval of the obstruction. He con-
cludes that "our war is in fact a
struggle between two revolutions, one
within democracy and one against
it," and our obstacles can be removed
only with ideas, not by military
Reason and Revolution ..
Prof. Roy W. Sellars of the philos-
ophy department states in an article
on "Reason and Revolution" that
sirlce revolution has become "in-
separably assoeiated with violence,
revolt, and destruction," it is "some-
thing to be condemned and avoided."
He points out that there are two for-
ces which are used to weaken the
factors of revolution-repression by
the use of force, which is simply
counter-revolution, and reform.
Prof. Sellars says, "In my opin-
ion America is doing reasonably
well (in reform) though not well
enough as yet." He believes that
by a process of education the peo-
ple are learning to discount many
preconceptions about social prob-
lems and are also realizing that
progress is not automatic. True
patriotism, Prof. Sellars says, will
ask "What kind of a country do we
want this to be?" and he contin-
ues, "such patriotism . . . must be
informed and ready to make com-
Changing Patterns ...
Prof. Lionel H. Laing of the politi-
cal science department in a discus-
sion of "Changing Patterns of Gov-
ernment" states that the war "may
be considered from two planes-the
international and the national." In
the international phase he sees the
war as a conflict of ideologies ex-
pressed in Mussolini's phrase "We or

wield power to those who have chos-

on them."
Revolution Continual?...
Col. William A. Ganoe, until re-
cently commandant of all Army
forces in the vicinity of Ann Arbor,
said in an article called "Revolu-
tion Continual?" that war is al-
ways with us. Although we tend
to regard the war as a setback to
the progress of civilization, he
questions this concept and asks
"Were we advancing? Were we
accelerating our contributions to a
better life for everybody? Were
we at peace then any more than
we are now?"
As evidence that we were not truly
progressing and in reality were not
in a state of peace, he cites the dis-
orders of pre-war days-the "racket-
eering war of Prohibition," the "army
of organized crime in our country,"
the casualties caused by the automo-
bile and the "unemployed millions
in the thirties."
Col. Ganoe condemns the stan-
dards of "fashion and class" and
asks "How many of us . . . have
been interested enough to sit down
with those we stigmatize, talk with
them, experience with them (the
masses) their privations and in-
sanitary squalor, and view the situ-
ation from their eyes without any
high-and-mighty air?" He says
that many of the "intelligentsia"
blinded themselves to President
Roosevelt's program, "the first
great bound forward sincerely for
the masses" because of personal
discomfort and taxes.
In summation Col. Ganoe states,
"As a matter of fact, the figures
show it is neither the most terrible
nor deadly of human activities--this
hellish thing called war, much as we
all hate it."
