ckes Den ,unces Foes
Of International Uniy
A POWFUL attack was hurled out against
the enemies of unity amnong the United Na-
tions when Secretary of the Interior Harold
Ickes, denounced the Heart Press and the Pater-
son-McCormack Axis for "deliberately fostering
ill will among the Allies."
This policy of ill will is exactly the one which
Dr. Joseph Goebbels is using iu the hope that
disunity between the ,nited States, Russia
and Great Britain will enable Germany to
make a successful negotiated peace.'
The method which the Hearst papers through-
out the country, as well as the New York Daily
News and Chicago Tribune, organs of te pat-
terson-McCormack Axis, have used to achieve
disunity are simply to play on all the old preju-
dices which years of misunderstanding helped to
build up.
N THE EDITORIAL columns of these papers
one still hears how we are being used. as the
tools of British imperialism and Russian com-
munism while in actuality' it is these nations
who have made the greatest amounts of that
sacrifice which hurts a nation most, the sacrifice
of men.
The Moscow Pact proved conclusively that
international cooperation, both duing and after
this war, is a practical proposition. The history
of the last twenty years should bring home to
us the fact that such cooperation is a distinct
necessity. The petty works of petty meri, who,
to quote Secretary Ickes, '"hate Premier Stalin
and President Roosevelt so bitterly that they
would rather see Hitler win the war," must not
be allowed to sway us rom our path.

Confidence in Ability Is
Mark of akri? Corps
Corps which had already started its brllant
career eyen before this country became an in-
dependent nation.
The spirit of the Corps is portrayed by
Lieut. - Gen. T. Holcomb, U.S.M.C., Coi-
mandant, U. S. Marine Corps, who said in, a
recent speech, "The Marines have conidence
in themselves. And contfi ence is grealy dif-
ferent from braggdocio. 'Confidence doesn't
come from the outside. It comes from, char-

accer and discipline, from training and; skill."
At the Navy-Citizens Committee banquet
which will be held today in Detroit, a moment's
silence will honor the memory of University
graduate, First Lieutenant George M. Cannon
of Ann Arbor,. the first Michigan Mrine to be
awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
HE GALLANT ACTION of Lt. Cannon ex-
emplifies the spirit of courage found through-
out the Corps. The Marines try always to live up
to their inotto "Semper Fidelis."
The Marines long ago established for them-
selves a reputation for courage and daring. In
our present confliet, members of the Corps
added a new page to the glory covered history
of the Marines.

NEW YORK, Nov. 10-1 have been collecting
all the explanations I can find for the Republi-
cans' striking election gains.
The Democrats, nationally, say that the peo-
ple voted as they did for a variety of local and
special reasons. But local Democrats, town by
town, explaining why they didn't get out the
vote, are excusing themselves on the ground
that there is a national Republican swing.
Tke your choice. Both explanations are
vague, a'd really cancel each other out.
Mr. Willkie says the people are tired, very
tired, of the national administration. That an-
alysis runs into head-on collision with a Fortune
poll of last June, which disclosed that 64.8 per-
cent of the electorate favored the re-election of
Mr. Roosevelt for a fourth term, if the war were
still on. If the people have become tired of F.
D. R. since last June, they have become tired
awfully fast. The analysis just doesn't add up.
Mr. Harrison Spangler, national chairman of
the G. 0. P., says the people want to go back
to the American way of life, meaning his way.
But the Republican New York Herald Tribune
thinks the people want to go forwaard, and that
they now regard the Republicans .as the pro-
gressive party. Again, check and cancel out.
In New York State, Governor Dewey says the
victory was local, while Mr. Willkie says it was
national. Check and cancel, once more. Of
course Mr. Dewey, as Governor, is a local figure,
while Mr. Willkie, as titular head of the party, is
very national, and each man ma be speaking the
piece best suited to his own position. But, more
and more, we find ourselves forced to the strange
conclusion that while the Republicans certainly
won handsomely, they do not really know why
they won.
What about the non-Republican Roosevelt op-
position? The New York'Daily News, which is
isolationist, and non-Republican, thinks the peo-
ple showed annoyance at the polls because the
administration chose to invade North Africa in-
stead of Japan.
The News seems so anxious to run MacArthur
for president that it can hardly wait for the next
election; it therefore injects him into the last

But the News' explanation simply can't be
so. A Fortune poll last June showed that 70.4
percent of the people endorsed the President's
conduct of the war, while an American Insti-
tute of Public Opinion poll in July showed that
73 percent endorsed his handling of foreign
policy. The News is in the minority, and it is
trying to saddle the majority with its own
minority reasons. Its side won, but it, too,
doesn't really know why.
Why, then, did the Republicans win? Is the
reason statistical, so to speak; based on the fact
that nearly 20 percent of the electorate (believe
it or not) is in uniform, and did not vote, and
that this forced abstention of younger men, and
workers, lately turned soldiers, hurt the Demo-
crats somewhat more than it hurt the Republi-
cans? Or is the reason for the Republican vic-
tory the fact that almost 10 percent of the elec-
torate has lately changed its address, hunting for
war jobs? I donit know. It would take careful
statistical studies to find out. I do not think
such studies could fully account for a nationwide
trend now five years old.
Five years! That phrase rings a bell. What
has been the chief domestic change- of the last
five years, apart from the war? (And the polls
show that war helps Roosevelt politically. rather
than hurts him.) Why, the chief domestic change
of the last five years has been a rising income
level, 'in all groups.
In the case of farmers, we can almost plot
on a chart their decline of interest in the
Democratic Party, as their financial status
improved. Is better economic weather Repub-
lican weather?. Is something like that at the
bottom of the election, a growing conservatism,
now that the income level is high? Were the
people saying at the polls that nothing hurts
them much, economically?
It so, there is something inexpressibly sad at
the bottom of the election, a kind of pi'ayer for
stability. I would be troubled and thoughtful
about that, if I were a political party. Neither
party is responsible for the income level, and
the income level seems to tell a somewhat clearer
story than do the dazzled pundits of both.

Post-War Planning,. .
HOW MANY of you students are
interested in post-war planning?
Do you care if we have another Ver-
sailles Treaty? Do you want the
world to have a World War III?
I could ask other questions along
similar lines, but I know your an-
swers, or I hope I do. But may I
ask you what you are doing to pre-
vent another war and all its recur-
ring suffering and hatred. Remem-
ber we live in a democracy, and it is
the duty of each of. its citizens to
take an active part in its policies.
Perhaps you have not realized
fully how you can help. May I
suggest a possible method of find-
ing out some of these things would
be to come to the first meeting of
the Post-War Council. At this
meeting, which starts at 7:30
Wednesday in the League, Profes-
sors Paton, Watkins, and Willcox
will lead in a panel discussion on
the foreign policy of the United
States. What is it, how has the
Moscow Pact affected it, and what
would we like it' to be?
After this panel discussion there
will be a short business meeting at
which the proposed program of the
'Council will be discussed. We have
plenty of opportunities for any and
all people who are interested in the
Council to take an active place. So
we cordially invite all students to
attend this meeting and help us in
the discussion to determine just a
little better what United States'
place is in the post-war world. Re-I
member that's the world we're going
to have to live in.

WASIINNGTON, Nov. 10. - Diplomats are
watching the Atlantic City food and rehabilita-
tion conference opening today (November 10)
more carefully than any other international
event in this country. They figure that the pat-
tern it adopts will set the stage for whatever type
of worlpeace organization the U. S. A. may
join afte the war.
Also they are worried. For the preliminary
moves look to small nation diplomats as if the
worst features of the League of Nations were
being sown all over again.
Yesterday, one day before the 44 United
Nations and Associated Nations meet at A.t-
lantic City, the Big Four-U. S., U. S. S. R.,
Britain, China-met in Washington and signed
an agreement regarding the organization to be
created at Atlantic City. In other words,
before the 44 nations met, the Big Four decided
for them the general structure they would
have to OK.
This structure provides for a sort of assembly
of 44 nations, similar to the League's assembly.
Also it providles for a Central Committee of
four nations, similar to the League Council.
This Central Committee will run things. The

smaller nations will meet once or twice a year to
Fewer Tires for Allies .,.
One thing not discussed at the Moscow con-
ference was rubber tires. If the question had
been raised, Russia would have been told that
tires on Lend-Lease will have to be reduced
Reason is that T. S. trucks and buses are
wearing their tires down to the fabric, and
Jesse Jones's long ballyhooed synthetic tires are
falling behind schedule. There is plenty of new
rubber, but a dire lag in tire production.
If bus and truck transportation is crippled,
the weight would be thrown back on the al-
ready struggling railroads. Also, many places
would be without transportation, since 54,000
communities have no rail service.
The Army. OPA, ODT and the Rubber Direct-
or's Office are putting their heads together to
find a way out. One solution will be a reduction
of tires shipped on Lend-Lease. Russia alone
was promised 500,000 this year, in addition to
2,000,000 already delivered,

Inited Nations Delegates Plan Rehabilitation
Program To Aid People of Occupied Europe

LIFE SHOULD LOOK considerably brighter
today for the improverished peoples. of oc-
cupied Europe as a result of two statements
made- yesterday by Allied leaders. Speaking at
a ceremony honoring the Lord-Mayor of London,
Prime Minister Churchill reiterated his declara-
tion that England would not rest until all of the
occupied nations have been freed. And 'even
more specific cheer came from President Roose-'
velt in his address to the delegates of the forty-
four nations which are to participate in the
United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Ad-
In days to come, a lot is going to be heard
about the activities of the UNRRA, as the or-
ganization is known, so it is well to examine
the President's words closely. It is good to
discover that the closer they are examined, the
more encouraging they become. 'They hold
out the promise of an effectively and demo-
crtited rhabiliation program

territories until the people are able to assume
the burden of their own support.
TH, OCCUPIED countries cannot be expected
to take their places as responsible members of
the world until their citizens are brought. back
to a civilized standard of living. According to
the President, the United Nations are aware of
that fact and are proceeding to do something
about it. In the words of Roosevelt, "it's not
only humane and charitable, it's a matter of
self-interest and military necessity."
One of the best features of UNRRA is that it
involves the close cooperaton of all the United
Nations, providing that each nation will share
in the work in accordance with its resources.
This will be the first project of this kind
undertaken as a joint action by these United
Nations. In French North Africa, the British
and Americans carried out such a program
with excellent results; now the responsibility
