Test in Italy
HflIE POLICY of the Allies toward liberated
nations has been reaffirmed by the course
pursued in Italy. Last week the Allied Com-
mission returned political home-rule to the
Italiah government.
The decision was reached by President Roose-
velt and Prime Minister Churchill previous to
the Crimea Conference. It means that acts
of the Bonomi Cabinet will no longer require
the assent of the Allied Commission,
The test came this week ivhen a left-wing
revolt threatened to oust the Bonomi govern-
ment. A demonstration before the royal palace
resulted in the death of an alleged Commu-
nist,-and the resignation of the premier was
However, the Communist party failed to throw
full support to the movement, requiring only
sweeping reforms in the existing government
rather than outright resignation. Thus a com-
promise solution appeared probable. !
during the crisis, the Allied Commission main-
tained its position of allowing the government
to settle its oWfn problems without interference,
so long as the war effort is not endangered.
This policy of non-intervention in spheres
with which we clearly have no concern is to
be commended, and inust form a precedent for
us to follow. A recognition of the right to
self-government of any capable nation is es-
sential to the mutual respect and considera-
tion upon which a latting peace must be
-Mary Brush

T HE SUREST WAY to stigmatize any move-
ment or idea in America is to call it "social-
istic." The word actually has no referential
meaning. It is calculated to be emotive, to call
forth a series of unpleasant images, wand to
arouse sentiment agaiist something without re-
course to reason.
Karl Marx, Jesus Christ, Adolph Hitler, Lev
Nikoleyovitch Tolstoi, Henry George, Plato, Ber-
nard Shaw, Gene Debs-all these men could in
some sense be called socialists. They have been
given that label, ofeourse, but without addirp
a single iota to our understanding of them.
The solution to a. social probei tust be
viewed according to its own erit--whatever
the source and no matter how much we dis-
like its name. In such a frame of reference,
each issue can be worked out by stead- and
objective means.
English statesmen are far ahead of us in this
respect. They are wise in their recognition
of the need for domestic reform as our cautious
leaders are not. Marquis Childs wrote in a
recent dispatch from London that British Labor-
ites generally expressed amazement over that
American conservatism which even mesmerizes
the laboring class in this country. There, they
speak seriously of nationalizing the coal mines;
here one must not even think of such a horrid
possibility. But, more mildly, every approxi-
mation of the Beveridge social security plan is
talked down in Congress as an impingement
upon free enterprise.
Now, England is the mst crjtiilistic con-
try on earth. By no stretch of the bountiful
imagination many eontro'er4sialists eni this
subject seem to have ca she becalled any-
thing but a fortress of the coninercial spirit
we regard so highly and revere so mmm.
Nonetheless, England's ailroads hre owned
and operated by the federal government
which fact plays hob with the argument that
if we follow suit, the next day commisars will
over-run America. England's radio system is

IS SEASON in Ann Arbor two eminent ar
tists-one a conductor, the other an actor-
made proposals that are considered radieal and
worse yet, inconsistent wih the lil0 yiOIOlh by
which robber barons and economic royalist
live. Sergei Koussevitzky, in an interview with
The Daily, said that he favored establishing na
tional subsidization of musicians, symphony or-
chestras and composers. While he spoke, son
one from the back of his dressing-room chimed
in with the usual chatter about dangerous social
of floods in Ohio and Mississippi River areas
Serious damage in communities around Pitts-
burgh, flooded streets in Louisville, and the los
of lives in the Ohio River area were reported
But also contained in these tragic accounts
was the reassuring news that the Red Cross
had poured a stream of relief personnel and
material in to the flood-stricken areas.
Last year the Red Cross was credited with
handling more than 200 disasters. Midwest-
ern floods early in 1944, which partially inun-
dated nine states, brought Red Cross workers
to the devastated areas. Swept by the June
2 tornado, in which 296 houses were destroy-
ed and 106 persons , lost their lives, the
damaged regions of West Virginia, Pennsyl-
vania and Maryland were likewise aided by
the Red Cross.
In such exigencies as the Hartford circus fire,
the Port Chicago, Cal. explosion, the eastern sea-
board hurricane and the Cleveland explosion and
fire, the Red Cross hurried to the scene with

addition to war aetivities, the Red (ross must
have funds. The goal for the 1945 War Fund
campaign is $180,000,000. The campus quota
as set by the League and the Union is '5,500.
Because of the urgent need for the work done
by the Red Cross, this goal mut be met. In
order to do this, every person on campus must

cially able to do.

Frances Lederer, displaying more insight in
these matters than dexterity as an actor, a

To the Marines

EARLY FEBRUARY 19-not many weeks ago-
the Fourth and Fifth Marine Divisions slip-
ped onto the pork-chop shaped enemy island
of Iwo Jima, 750 miles from Japan itself. Japs
held off until the Leathernecks had moved in a
few hundred yards, thinking the attack might
be a feint. It wasn't. Forty-eight hours after
the landing 3,650 of those Leathernecks were
either killed or wounded. In 58 hours, the
total soared to 5,372, or three for every two
minutes of action.
On February 23, the key position of Mt. Suri-
bachi, dubbed Mt. Plasma by the Yanks, flew the
American flag, and today three Marine divisions
are fighting the toughest battle in the history
of the famed corps' That takes in a lot of
battles, too. That includes the Soissons ac-
tion in the summer of 1018; that includes Ta-
rawa; that includes Saipan. But Lt. Gen. Rol-
land M. Smith ranks Two above all the rest.
Yet in this toughest battle, the Marines
are winning. A Marine sergeant put it well
when he said, "This island is too small for
both Japs and Marines. Someone has to get
off, and it's not going to be us."
Well, it wasn't "us."
