General Misses Points
In PCbli Statements
LT. GEN. GEORGE S. PATTON evidently has
fully developed the gentle art of putting his
foot in his mouth and then stepping on it.
His explosive personality is exactly suited to
the battlefield where the object is to get the
blankety-blank enemy at all costs, but his
public statements miss the point like nice
spring weather misses Ann Arbor.
Patton's blurb on Tuesday that it is the destiny
of the American, British and Russian peoples
to rule the world directly refutes all the war aims
we've had pounded into us via the Atlantic Char-
ter and the Teheran and Cairo Conferences. All
this talk about international cooperation and liv-
ing in a common world of international decency
and mutual understanding after the war seems to
have passed through the good general's ears
without making an impression.
Undoubtedly Patton's snap judgments work
well on the battlefield where he can say, "o
this," and it's done before anyone has a chance
to say it won't work. But his skill is limited to
the blood and thunder of the fighting front and
just doesn't go over in the comparatively calm
atmosphere of/the outside world.
Patton should learn to keep his mouth shut
and let authorized, silvery-tongued Allied spokes-
men tell the world what the United Nations
intend to do. General Patton should stick to
his guns. -Ray Dixon

I'd Rather

NEW YORK-April 26.-Oh, fudge, now we
have to go through the whole business again, this
time with the Greeks.
It's going to be just what it was with the
French, with the Italians, with the Yugoslavs.
We're going to have Greek Girauds and Greek
de Gaulles, and Greek Titos, the whole thing.
Here we go again: Greek sailors, hoisting the
banner of the Eam movement, one of the three
Greek guerrilla outfits, have seized three Greek
warships somewhere in the Mediterranean. They
have been overcome in pitched battle by Greek
soldiers of the King, with the help of several
British warships. The British vessels did no
shooting, but hovered about, frowning upon the1
scene like Mr. Churchill himself.
One may now, with utmndst confidence, pre-
dict the future course of Greek events.
It will be announced that we must preserve
order among the Greeks. Overlooking the fact
that King George's policies have led, not to
order, but to mutiny, Prime Minister Churchill
will support the Greek King. He will do so ini
one of those dark-brown speeches in which
the quality of his prose drops so curiously
below the level it attains when lie is attacking
THERE are three Greek guerrilla movements,
the Eam, the Edes and.the Ekka. The Eam
(or Elas) is described as Communist; at any rate,
it is supported by the Soviet radio. Details on
the three movements are vague, for the Allied
Middle East censorship on the subject is so thick
that you have to kind of swim your way through
a fog to reach any facts at all. Right now we are
in about the stage which we had reached with
relation to Tito's Partisans two years ago; that
is, we know, something is going on in Greece, but
we don't know much about it, except that it is
against the exiled government, and that a lot of
dirty names are being applied to it. It is called
a movement of bandits, communists, reds and
mutineers. It also happens to be the biggest of
the three Greek guerrilla movements. It wants
a place in the government. It has won the sup-
port of the Ekka, and now Eam and Ekka are
allied against Edes.
There is a distinct chance that, soon after we
shall have learned to call the Eam bandits, mu-
tineers, reds and robbers, we shall wake up one
fine morning, as we did in the case of Tito of
Yugoslavia, and find that we have to learn a
whole new vocabulary; that the Earn really con-
sists of patriots, popular leaders and priests.
We shall then twist our tongues trying to make
a quick enough terminological turn.
But look, we've been here before. Can't we
skip the whale dreary process and have a
formal conference of all :Greek factions and
work out a program for unity? The British
have tried to get the guerrillas to work togeth-
er. But if a place in the government is their
desire, why can't it be arranged? Do we now
have to chew the cud over that, after going
through precisely the same dreariness about
the French and the Italians?
We have been cold enough toward the people
of Europe; we have been resolutely unaware,
with a kind of determined official unawareness,
of what the people of the occupied countries
want in the way of progressive leadership. Now
we are still at it, walking down the street swing-
ing a club, like a cop keeping order, with no
never-mind about what may be breaking in the
hearts of the people.
Can't we shorten the process, just once? Do
we have to go through the same arguments and
shoutings and hesitations in each country we
come to, as if it were always brand-new and
always a surprise?

WASHINGTON, April 27.-Trouble is seething
inside the War Labor Board again and this time
it has nothing to do with John L. Lewis. On the
contrary, it is the employer members and their
backstage friends, the National Association of
Manufacturers and the U.S. Chamber of Com-
merce who are causing the ferment.
For a long time, a frank, friendly and coopera-
tive attitude existed between the three wings of
the War Labor Board, representing industry, the
public and labor. Roger Lapham head of the
American-Hawaiian Steamship Company, and
George Mead, head of The Mead Corporation,
paper company of Dayton Ohio, were especially
cooperative. But now, Lapham has left to be
Mayor of San Francisto, while Mead has been
virtually shunted off the board as a result of
wire-pulling from the U.S. Chamber and the
National Manufacturers Association.
These two organizations have decided to
dominate the industry members on the War
Labor Board. Fred Crawford, former presi-
dent of the Manufacturers Association, whose
Thompson Products, Inc., of Cleveland, has a
reactionary labor record, has now organized a
,joint committee of the NAM and U.S. Chamber.
As a result of all this, tension between industry
members on one side and public-labor WLB
members on the other has steadily increased.
It reached a boiling point recently over the
question of the "maintenance of membership"
clause in labor contracts.
This is a compromise whereby employers agree
that, if a worker joins the union, he must remain
in the union for the period of the labor contract,
or one year. However, there is nothing to compel
him to join the union. He may work indefinite-
ly as a non-union man, and he is even given
two weeks to resign from the union before the
"union maintenance" agreement takes effect.
Previously, industry WLB members have
voted for this as a fair war-time compromise.
But recently a hot fight has developed over the
case of the Humble Oil Company, a subsidiary
of Standard of New Jersey. And for the first
time, industry members have deviated from
their previous desire to cooperate with labor
on union maintenance.
This time, obviously acting on instructions
from the new joint committee .of the Manufac-
turers Association and the U.S. Chamber, the in-
dustry members have prepared a blistering min-
ority report urging Humble Oil to defy the War
Labor Board and go to court. Their minority
decision hasn't been made public yet. But unless
they change their minds, the WLB will be pretty
much in open warfare when it is.

IT'S WHAT the men are saying at the front in
Italy and Burma, what the Russians sing on
their way to Berlin, what the Chinese and Am-
ericans march to in the Pacific: Keep Moving.
It's what Tom Paine and Wendell Phillips and
Lincoln Steffens and Heywood Broun have al-
ways told us: That the earth is moving, and we'll
be pushed backward if we try to stand still. It's
not enough to look at things in "the right light"
and say they're "not so bad"; distorted illumin-
ation is no excuse for doing nothing.
We have to keep moving in our struggle for
more liberty and equality; in our war against
fascism wherever we find it. And we can't
use sweet and quiet words in describing these
Once before in American history we were
fighting the same kind of battle against the en-
slavement of one group of men by another and
the destruction of men's rights.uAt that time
William Lloyd Garrison began publishing "Te
Liberator" in Boston. In 1831, when he stood

for immediate freedom and enfranchisement of
the slaves, people complained that he wrote too
harshly. He replied: "I am accused of using
hard language. I admit the charge. I have not
been able to find a soft word to describe villainy.
or to identify the perpetrator of it."
Nor can we sweetly describe the seditionists
now on trial in Washington for aiding fascism
in this country. Nor the poll-tax southerners
and northern Republicans who oppose HR7, the
Anti-Poll Tax Bill coning up in the Senate next
week. They plan to defeat the motion for clo-
ture when it is made, and to filibuster the bill
to death.
THEY FEEL that it is none of our business who
can vote in their eight states. That it is all
right for a Bilbo, a Dies, a McKellar, a "Cotton
Ed" Smith to be sent to Congress by three per
cent of the population, and, once there, to defeat
legislation supported by men much more truly
representative of their constituents. Now that
the .Supreme Court has made "white primaries"
unconstitutional, it is possible for a little political
democracy to lift its head south of the Mason-
Dixon line. The passage of the Anti-Poll Tax
Bill can increase this possibility.
This doesn't mean that things are going to
become perfect, all at once. But these two ac-
tions, plus a few more, can be a start. We can

A MERICAN students have frequently been ac-
cused of living in an ivory-tower world. They,
have been pictured as gaily flitting from class
to class, from party to dance-completely un-
concerned about what is going on around them.
While such a picture is obviously distorted, it
contains a grain of truth.
They find it far too easy to live in their own
little spheres. In a vague sort of way they real-
ize that other students, in China, in France, in
Russia or Switzerland are enduring hardships
which would shock them.
This Saturday every student on the Univer-
sity campus will have a chance to do more
than think about the situation. Inter-Guild,
an organization of Protestant students, is spon-
soring an "International Carnival" for the
benefit of the World Student Service Fund.
WSSF, as it is known, is an organization that
sends books, money and clothing to students all
over the world, toprisoners of war, to internees
and to refugees. It aids in reconstruction through
modifying the attitudes both of those who give
and of those who receive aid.
In making his appeal to the students of Am-
erica, Sidney Lovett, chairman of the general
committee of the WSSF, said, "The World Stu-
dent Service' Fund was started by students who
have APO numbers now-men on Guadalcanal
and in Sicily, men in prison camps in Germany

Italy wrote, "I acknowledge with thanks the
receipt of your letter and books. I am deeply
indebted to you for the trouble you have taken.
I am entering upon my seventh month of im-
prisonment and yours is the only mail I have
Last year $160,000 was raised for WSSF. This
money was used to aid students in Russia, China,
Canada, India, to help prisoners of war in the
Far East, and to assist in relocating Japanese
American students.
Proceeds from the International Night Car-
nival to be held Saturday at Lane Hall will be
turned over to the WSSF. Not only is every
student and serviceman given an opportunity
to aid in a worthwhile cause, but everyone
should have a thoroughly enjoyable evening
with carnival booths, square dancing, and en-
tertainment furnished by the International
If they believe that education is important,
