Of freedom this and freedom that the drooling

But freedom for Free Enterprise is all that really
This freedom was ordained by God, upon it rest

For man's divinest impulse is to overreach his

For victory we're giving all-at scarcely more
than cost;
But how will victory help us if Free Enterprise
be lost?
The war's demands for well-laid plans most
loyally we've heeded,.
But peace is quite a different thing-no plan-

So, while today the state's controls have stretched
us on the rack,
The moment victory comes in sight we want our

In armed revolt we'll all arise

Roosevelt Speech Won't
Save Jews in Balkans
FEW LIVES are ever saved by humanitarian
speeches unaccompanied by definite action.
Lately, though, too many of our leaders have de-
pended for results on encouraging statements in-
stead of specfic deeds. The latest instance of this
came iday"when President Roosevelt called
on the 'people of the Balkans to hide the Jews
in that area fron persecution by the oncoming
It is as ineffective as it is easy to sit in Wash-
ington and calmly issue a declaration. But it is
alnost a certainty that such words will not
have any effect in halting the tortures, slaugh-
ters, and mass murders that are bound to occur
Within the coming weeks.
At the same time the President asked that
"the free people of Europe and Asia temporarily
open their frontiers to all victims of oppression."
'That statement will seem ironical to those who
have been following the fate of Europe's Jews
for the past few years. No one knows just how
many hundreds of thousands of Jewish people
have already been killed, but the number is
unbelievably large.
And all this while, the possibility of saving
many of these people has been in front of the
United Nations' leaders. If the doors of Pales-
tine had been opened to increased immigration
of refugees, a good many of the prospective vic-
tims would no longer be in the Balkans, waiting
for the scheduled oppression.
Even today it is not too late to make this
move-to allow those who can still escape to
enter their rightful homeland. Instead, Presi-
dent Roosevelt makes speeches urging other
peoples to take the action which is the legiti-
mate responsibility of the United Nations.

Republicans Are Dated,
But There's Still Hope
OR those who look down their noses at South
American politics, a point brought out in a
recent history lecture should prove startling.
As long ago as the 1830's the conservative party
in Uruguay adopted the white flag as its symbol.
So . . . here it is 1944 and our conservatives
haven't raised the white flag yet. Just a century
and some behind the times.
In the 1920's our conservative policies (a)
kept us out of the League of Nations, (b)
passed the Smoot-Hawley tariff bill. We throw
the rest of the world into chaos and then step
out of the picture, until we're forced back in
by Pearl Harbor. This is a gigantic over-sim-
plification of the facts, but it's still fact.
And members of the Republican party who are
now candidates for nomination for the presi-
dency persist in these same policies. Before they
learned better, some hailedGovernor Bricker as
"a second Harding." We could go one better.
Let's call Governor Dewey " a second George
Washington." Dewey may not be the father of
his country, but he's certainly an isolationist. And
still no white flag! Like a dog hanging onto a

WASHINGTON, Mar. 25 - F. D. Roosevelt,
greatest friend of labor in American history, is
now facing the bitterest labor feud of his many
years in office. The two wings of labor are vir-
tually trying to pull him to pieces. It got so bad
that, a week ago Saturday, the CIO, in a secret
session threatened to resign from the War Labor
There are two chief AFL-CIO boiies o con-
tention. One is the question of CIO representa-
tion at the coming Philadelphia meeting . of
the International Labor Oflice on April 10.
The other is the breaking of the wage-stabiliza-
The difference between realization and ac-
quaintance is highly significant. A man may be
aware of cultural pluralism, for example, without
a realization of what is is. His knowledge about
it will picture cultural pluralism as the existence
in our nation of many cultures, each as free
as any other. But a realization of cultural plural-
ism takes place only when he experiences his
own culture conditioned by some other. Person-
ly viewed, only when I, as an American, sym-
pathetically study and absorb some phases of the
Chinese way or the Russian way, can I realize
the meaning of cultural pluralism. Or only when
I, as a Christian, actually worship with a Jew
in his Judaism, can I begin to realize the fact of
cultural pluralism spiritually. Our rejection of
another ethnic group usually is done in total
ignorance of that group or their culture. The cen-
tral reason why it is irreligious to so reject the
persons concerned is that such rejection is done
as if the persons were things. Since they arei
persons, religiousness demands respect and rev-
erence on my part. One God, therefore, all men
are brothers.
Realization is something different from the
idea. It is the idea plus a series of emotions.
Without entering into a mystical experience, the
realization of cultural pluralism would involve
at least the joy of having found en rapport with
a person whose interpretation of life-including
tastes, habitual responses and generalizations-
is dramatically different. I have a Hindu friend
in Chicago whom I greatly enjoy. He is not only
unique, as Mr. Sinha differs from Mr. Jones,
but he is rich, as I see him, because he is Hindu
while I am Christian. I believe our friendship
makes me a rounded Christian. He confesses to
have become a better Hindu for a similar reason
in reverse. This experience of cultural pluralism,
of which Mordekai Kaplan. is an able exponent,
is almost the opposite of Christianization. Chris-
tianization presupposes that I should convert my
Hindu friend out of Hinduism into the Christian
way. Americanization also, is a form of over-

tion formula and the question of whether the
CIO or AFL shall get credit for blowing it to
pieces-if that happens.
Some time ago the President promised CO
chief Phil Murray that the CIO could send a
delegate to the International Labor Office con-
vention. This meant that the CIO would have
equal representation with the AFL, each getting
one-half vote. Immediately thereafter, someone
round the White House warned the President
that he had stuck his foot in it, so FDR sent for
Bill Green.
Green, after hearing the news, came out of the
White House with a very sour look on his face.
He told newsmen that the AFL would never agree
to having the CIO represented at the Interna-
tional Labor Office convention, that the ILO had
been started by Sam Gompers long before the
CI was ever heard of, and that, if the CIO
was going to be represented at Philadelphia, the
AFL would stay out.f
Blunt Turndown -
Labor controversy No. 2 came to a head a
week ago Saturday when the War Labor Board
voted on whether to have hearings on the
Little Steel formula in order to consider giving
a I7 cents an hour raise to Phil Murray's steel
At this meeting, AFL members, blazing mad
because the CIO had been offered equal delega-
tion at the ILO Philadelphia convention, voted
against holding Little Steel hearings. Their nega-
tive vote also was induced by the fact that the
AFL previously had asked to have the Little Steel
formula opened up, and had been denied.
Previously, it was most unusual for any labor
members on the War Labor Board to vote
against each other. Furthermore, all the CIO
was asking was a hearing on the Little Steel
Formula, not a definite decision to break it.
When this was denied, the CIO threatened to
withdraw from the WLB.
All of which illustrates the headaches in store
for any Presidential candidate who tries to carry
labor at the next election.

simplification which misses the real point of a
democratic way.
Realization, then, takes place only where
there is sympathy, a will to appreciate, an ov-
erture from person to person and a search for
mutuality beneath the exteriors of a culture.
It also requires willingness to learn without
dominating. If American democracy is to ride
the tide of racial fears which is now setting
in, such a solution of our community rela-
tions must be popularized speedily. The ob-
ligation rests primarily on every majority-
on the prevailing racial stock, on Christians
in religion and on all groups having prestige.

to make arrangements with French

For a day of wild rumors, it was

But it seems there is a third sort
of Frenchman, and that's the sort
we are looking for. This fancy hy-
brid is not a Vichyite, not a de-
Gaullist, either. He has remained
in France, through the war, with-
out joining Vichy and without

He has been sitting there like a
dummy since 1940. Nobody has
been able to make him talk. The
most monstrous events have taken
place, without stirring a reaction
in him. As to how useful this inert
mass of flesh can be to us, nobody
has explained. If there is such a

don't like him. He sounds like a

It would appear that, forced to

All notices for the Daly Oificial Bul-
letin are to be sent to the Office of the

p.m. of the day preceding its publica-
tion, except on Saturday when the no-

Notice Relative to Keys and Loks:
The Bylaws, Section 3.24, provide:
Keys and Locks for University Build-
ings. No person shall own or possess
a key to any University building ex-
cept under regulations made and
promulgated by the Vice-President
and Secretary. The removal of locks
or the substitution therefor of special
or private locks on doors of rooms in
University buildings is prohibited.
Every "authorized" key has been
issued by the Key Clerk, whose office
is in the office of the Department of
Buildings and Grounds, North Uni-
versity Avenue. "Authorized" keys
are identifiable and any dean, pro-
fessor, official, watchman, custodian,
or other proper representative of the
University has the right to inspect
keys' believed to open University
buildings at any reasonable time or
place. No person holding an author-
ized key may order,dhave made, or
permit to be ordered or made any
duplicate of his or her University
key otherwise than through the Key
Clerk's office, nor may he lend his
authorized key. Complete compli-

ance with these regulations would
undoubtedly have saved the Univer-
sity andindividuals numerous losses
from theft in the past. In the pres-
ent war emergency compliance is
especially desirable and requested.
Violations of these regulations, when
found, will be referred to the dean or
other proper head of the University
division concerned for this action in
accordance with the principles here
set forth. Shirley W. Smith

HAVE written a number of times
about American "political slug-

promise you that I am laughing on
only one side of my face.. For every-

tigator jokes, about the intense fear
on the part of several of our govern-
ment bureaus lest they make a slip
and hire someone who was too hot
an anti-fascist, too soon, a "pre-
mature anti-fascist;" everyone has
heard about the eagerness of the
bureaus to secure employes who were
indifferent to the national danger
until it was too late to avert it. Now

we seem, incredibly, to be looking
for the same kind of Frenchman.
As to what we are going to do with
him when we find him, except stuff
him, I cannot imagine.
But we are not going to find him,
because he does not exist. ttmost,
he is a shad'ow in our own mirrors.
Furthermore, if he is as politically
Inert as we think, he will not be in
a position to be of much use to our
invading forces; he won't be able
to surrender anything, because he
won't have anything. The trouble
with the curious doctrine of expe-
diency-plus-morality which we are
enunciating is that expedient deals
are possible only with men who
are definitely linked with the en-
emy; other men have nothing to be
expedient with, or about. Our ex-
pediency invites them, our current
moral pronouncements reject
them, and the upshot is our pres-
ent hunt for an unidentified po-
litical neuter.
Those who have felt that our for-
eign policy is languishing in a kind
of misty Halfway House will now
have their doubts reinforced. Un-
committed men are hunting for an
uncommitted assistant.

counsellors or mentors at theend of
the five-week period and at mid-
semester. Continued participation
after these checks will depend upon
permission of the academic counsel-
lors or mentors. All other students
who are not on probation or the

Participation in a public activity
is defined as service of any kind on
a committeeorapublication, in a
public performance or a rehearsal,
holding office or being a candidate
for office in a class or other student
organization, or any similar function.
In order to keep the personnel rec-
ords up to date in the Office of the
Dean of Students, the president or
chairman of any club or activity
should submit a list of those par-
ticipating each term on forms ob-
tainable in Room 2, University Hall.
These records are referred to con-
stantly by University authorities,
governmental agencies and industrial
concerns throughout the country and
the more complete they are, the more
valuable they become to the Univer-
sity and the student.
