RECRUIT DRIVE:
Coeds To Have Chance
To Learn About WACs
UNIVERSITY WOMEN will have an excellent
opportunity to acquaint themselves with a
vital part of our nation's armed services to-
morrow when the WAC recruiting show is held
in Hill Auditorium.
An entertaining as well as informative pro-
gram has been carefully planned and Univer-
sity women, especially those who who will soon
be graduating, should make every possible ef-
fort to attend the show, especially as a new
drive for recruits also opens tomorrow.
The time for mere theorizing about the WAC,
the. WAVES and other service units,, i past.
These units have proved themselves to be vital
to the successful prosecution of the war. It
should be the duty of every college woman to
seriously consider herself as prospective mater-
ial for war-time service in one of the women's
service units. -Evelyn Phillips
ANTI-SEMITE:
Known Pro-Fascist Kept
On N.Y. Police Force
THE REINSTATEMENT of Patrolman James
L. Drew of the New York Police Force last
week, after he had been caught red-handed en-
gaging in seditious activities, is in defiance of
all that supposedly is dearest to American law.
Drew, an avowed anti-Semite and the friend
and associate of Joe McWilliams, a notorious
"rabble-rouser," was found, according to the
testimony of Commissioner of Investigation
William B. Herlands, to have contributed funds
"to at least four organizations which, accord-
ing to federal indictments, were engaged in
seditious activities." In his garage were found
quantities of scurrilous anti-Semitic pam-
phlets.
Instead of booting him unceremoniously from
the force, Police Commissioner Valentine rein-
stated Drew, with back pay, no less. During his
period of suspension from the force, Drew was
allowed to police a Brooklyn precinct with a pre-
ponderantly Jewish population.
Mayor Fiorella LaGuardia has promised to
look into the matter when he has a chance. It
is hoped that he is not allowed to forget this
case. -Agatha Miller
IN PROTEST:
Liberal Argentine Paper
Suspends Publication
NOTHER ITEM of unrest and disunity has
appeared in Argentina with the suspension
of publication of the liberal newspaper La Van-
guardia in Buenos Aires Friday.
No newsprint shortage or lack of manpower
caused them to quit printing, but rather what
they termed "a situation in the government
incompatible with our ideas of liberty and
freedom for what the world (except Argen-
tina) is fighting."

PEARSON'S
MERRY-GO-ROUND
WASHINGTON-Jan. 9-Now that the Rus.
sians are back on Polish soil, friendly relations
between Poland and Russia are more important
than ever. However, the difficulty of British
Foreign Minister Eden's job of patching them up
is illustrated by an incident which now can be
told about the Atlantic City Relief Conference.
The Russians arrived with about eighteen
reels of motion-picture film of which they
were very proud. Almost immediately, they
asked for permission to show their pictures of
the devastated Russian regions to the as-
sembled delegates.
However, the American delegation, host to the
conference, politely demurred. It was feared
that other delegates would also ask to show con-
ditions, existing in their countries.
But the Russians still itched to show their
films, and one night in the hotel bar, when U.S.
delegate Dean Acheson and British delegate
John Llewellin exuded Anglo-American-Russian
friendship, the Russians again broached the
matter of their films and finally got permission
to show them.
The big event arrived. All the delegates were
there to see. The pictures were excellent. Eng-
lish captions were dubbed in to translate the
Russian titles, but since the film had been put
together hurriedly in order to reach Atlantic
City, the last part had not been translated into
English.
During the tail end of the picture, there
was a sudden commotion in the audience, and
stamping of feet as several indignant dele-
gates marched out. They were the Poles. They
went to their room and proceeded to write a
letter to the conference demanding an apol-
ogy.
What happened was that the Russian film had
shown pictures of the city of Lemberg or Lwow,
in Eastern Poland, which would become Russian
under the new plan to partition Poland. The
Russian title, which only the Poles and Russians
could read, said "A Typical Russian City."
Polish feelings were finally soothed at At-
lantic City. But the incident illustrates how
difficult these European problems will be.
NOTE-it is reported that the Poles will be
given East Prussia and Upper Silesia at the ex-
pense of Germany, to compensate for the loss
of Eastern Poland to Russia.
Hoover's GOP Cabinet .. .
It isn't being advertised, but Herbert Hoover
is receiving all sorts of callers in his suite in
New York's Waldorf-Astoria and literally is rub-
bing his hands getting ready to put the next
Republican Administration into power one year
from this month.
He is also giving special attention to the
appointment of the next Republican Cabinet.
In that Cabinet, Hoover himself would be
Secretary of State, and Hugh Gibson, former
Ambassador to Belgium, would be Under-Sec-
retary-provided Hoover's candidate, Tom
Dewey, is elected. How far he has gone with
the other Cabineteers is not known, though it
is known that the MacArthur followers have
selected Beardsley Ruml of the Ruml Plan as
their Secretary of the Treasury.
Note-one member of Hoover's old Cabinet not
expected to go along with him in 1944 is ex-
Secretary of War Pat Hurley, recently a war
diplomat for Roosevelt. Hurley's friends say he
has told FDR he would support him in 1944.

"WHY NOT TAKE the religions of the world
seriously and re-examine them with a view

to producing a stable order?" suggests Professor
Eduard Lindeman of the New School of Social
Work. Here is a rich field for research. Though
he does not specify the religions, no doubt he
refers to Hinduism, oldest of the faiths, With its
Ahimsa, meaning no one shall kill; to Zoroaster-
ianism with its certain triumph of good over evil;
Buddhism, seeking the elimination of all human
desire; Confucianism, whose spirit of Li and
doctrine of Mean stabilize China; Judaism, with
her law-giving God whose essence is justice;
Christianity, the bold attempt to fuse all of
man's desires into a refined personality which
will transcend time; and to Islam, with her per-
sistent predestination. What a store of wisdom is
suggested.
Three features identify a religion, we are
told: A Being beyond the natural and human
sphere who awakens supreme loyalty; a code
of ethics consistent not with the wishes of
man but with the will of his God; and renewal,
a love affair between devotee and Deity mean-
ing worship, the seeking of insight regularly.
When we think of the millions thus held by
these several great faiths, recall that they hold
the allegiance of various races and completely
encircle the globe, the possible assurance of a
world peace to more than match world war
is alluring.
But what of leadership? The lecturer seemed
to unfrock religion, for he would popularize it,

I'd Rather
Be Right_
- By SAMUEL GRATON
NEW YORK. Jan. 9.-Footnotes on the Marsh-
all Matter: Let us recall exactly what General
Marshall complained of when he denounced the
rail and steel strike threats. He said the seizure
of the railroads would prolong the war. How?
By convincing Nazi satellite nations in the Bal-
kans that we are torn by dissension, and un-
ready for a serious offensive.
The picture is that these Balkan nations,
or some of them, were ready to flipflop over to
us, and that the rail seizure halted the flipflop.
Why should it have had that curious effect?
The people of the Balkans must be in an inex-
plicable state of mind if the news of a pay in-
crease of a few cents an hour for American
workers will make them sit on their hands and
refuse to rise in revolt. What! American rail
labor has won eight cents more an hour, or some-
thing? To hell with the revolution!
A PROPAGANDA AGAINST THE FEW
But when this argument is brought forth,
when it is proved, in addition, that the Nazi radio
has made no special mention of the rail seizure,
an answer comes out of Washington. Mr. Arthur
Krock, for example, tells us that it was on the
leaders of the Balkan countries that our rail
troubles had an averse effect, and that the
Nazis propagandized those leaders, not through
mass media, but by means of private diplomatic
conversations..
At this point the story becomes enormously
interesting, for it means that our ptopaganda
is directed, not at the Balkan peoples, but at
their puppet masters. It means that when we
think of propaganda, we think of it in terms
of propaganda directed against a few key men,
a few high-placed weasels. One of the oddest
footnotes to the*Marshall incident is the revel-
ation that we are not trying to work on the
mass mind of Europe, so much as, we are
searching for more Badoglios. Our propaganda
is, at least in part, a propaganda against the
few; a hunt for turncoats and Darlans.
That is what has bothered some commentators,
such as Miss Dorothy Thompson, who cannot
understand why our rail seizure is considered
bad propaganda by our officials.
THIS IS A SEPARATE STORY
It depends on whom you are propagandizing.
The revelation, made almost innocently, that we
are more concerned with operating on the minds
of the few than on the minds of the many is a
wholly distinct and separate story coming out of
the Marshall conference, and perhaps more im-
portant than the labor situation which produced
the conference.
Now, General Marshall's knowledge of the
politico-military situation in the Balkans is
(to put it with a dim smile) much broader
than mine. If he says so, then it is true that
several Balkan leaders were on the verge of
turning their coats once again, and in our
favor, and that our rail seizure frightened
them by making thenm wondev whether we
could go through with our attack on the Nazis.
But a high question of policy is established by
this news. I don't mean only the question of
whether the search for Badoglios is worth while
in the military sense, which we certainly couldn't
prove by anything that has happened in our
favor in Italy. Whatever we have won in Italy,
we won with blood, and it hasn't been Badoglio's
blood.
AS THROUGH A GLASS
The question is that of the exquisitely narrow
view we are taking of the continent of Europe;
or, let us say, a view through a distorting glass,
in which we see the puppet leaders as somewhat
larger than life, and the people as somewhat
smaller. It is the kind of squinting peep which
makes us see a Peyrouton as bigger than big, yet
lets a major popular uprising in Yugoslavia catch
us by surprise.
How can we hope to shape the future of Eur-
ope nearer to our heart's desire, if the minds
we choose to work upon are, mostly, the dead
minds of the continent? All this, and more,

comes out of a conference which already de-
serves to be called historic.
(Copyright, 1944, New York Post Syndicate)
and hand its administration to a variety of
leaders. He would not exclude ministers, but
would include scientists, teachers, editors, men
on the assembly line, boys at the controls and
mothers who wait. Is that not a wild dream?
"Only the wise can examine religion," says one.
"The clergy alone have the grace to receive God's
revelation," says another. From these reflections,
he would dissent. Truth has a way of being its
own protector. As for religion, was it not Jesus
who said, "We thank Thee, Lord, for having
hidden these things from the over-wise and
prudent and revealed them unto babes?" (Luke
X:21 and Matt. XI:25) Give us a fresh approach
is his appeal. He has a central truth-religion is
impotent if not practiced. Every college man
and woman should thrill to such an adventure.

No Just Protest . . .
N REPLY to your letter in Thurs-
day's Daily, we would like to ex-
press our sympathy for you - and
all others like you, who after two and
one-half years of college have not yet
grown up. College is more than just
"book-learning" - it's learning to
adjust oneself to surrounding condi-
tions.
The dormitories, supported by the
University, are placed here for our
benefit. At the present writing, there
are any number of girl s anxious for
the opportunity to reside in your
room any time you care to give it up.
No rule forces you to live in a dorm.
Since you seem to be so "disgruntled"
why don't you investigate the matter
a bit. You spoke about standing in
line for "hours" (which we have rea-
sons to doubt, since the dining halls
are only open for 75 minutes!) Have
you ever waited for a place to sit in
a restaurant, and then waited even
longer to be served? And as for
leaving the dinner table so hungry
you could eat almost anything - my
friend, we have lived in a dorm for
two and one-half years and have
never experienced that feeling - but
then, we aren't that finicky type!
Although it may seem that we
are taking an unfair advantage of
you by mentioning the war and the
suffering going on all over the
world today, we find it necessary to
remind you of a few facts. You
mention the "tough grind we find
on campus." Disgruntled, you have
not yet experienced a "tough
grind"-no matter how many blue-
books you've had in one day, no
matter how much sleep you've lost
studying at night, no matter how
many hours you've spent partici-
pating in those extra-curricular
activities. The really "tough grind"
is being experienced by those fight-
ing men whose meal often consists
of a can of dehydrated food- have
you ever tasted dehydrated food?
And then, there are the people in
the war-torn countries .of Europe
and Asia - what do you think
they're getting to eat these days?
The "leavings" from your plate and
others like you would probably be
a godsend to them.
Until you can show us an example
f the "independent coeds who
waste away from lack of food in the
iormitories," we will continue in our
>elief that everything is being done
o give us well-balanced and appetiz-
ng meals, in spite of the hardships
vith which our dieticians and other
dtchen employees must contend!
-"Two Mosher Residents"
Freedom Needs Goal . .
RUSHING the enemy into uncon-
ditional surrender on the battle
ield is but one aspect of the war.
the strategy must be mapped and
he battles won, but to what purpose
nless our leaders are prepared to
olve the inevitable post-war prob-
ems.
There is too little plain speech
about our long range objectives.
We ask why we are fighting the
war. The reply is a dull recital of
Nazi and Japanese acts of aggress-
ion. What underlies those acts is
ignored.
We are told we are fighting for
reedom. Freedom from want etc. But
he question is not freedom from
ahat? The question is freedom for
chat? Neitsche said "to be free of a
oke is meaningless unless one has

n intelligible goal. In other words
reedom is a means to an end, but we
tre expected to regard it as an end
n itself.
