Nisei Rights
AN EDITORIAL which appeared in The Daily
of April 10 commended Canadians for their
treatment of their citizens of Japanese descent.
The writer stated that the Canadian'government
will allow those who so wish to be repatriated
to Japan after the war.
The writer was not being ironic. She was
actually patting the kind Canadian government
on the head for allowing its citizens of Japanese
descent to move to Japan. The writer added
that "those who wish to become Japanese cit-
izens will be paid the expenses of returning to
Japan and will be compensated for their prop-
erty in Canada."
The Canadian government is also taking an-
other measure which might easily conyjnce
Japanese-Canadians that deep down in their
hearts their loyalty is to Japan. The forced
evacuation of Japanese-Canadians from the
West Coast will continue indefinitely, while the
War Relocation Authority in this country has
already taken steps to reinstate Nisei to their
West Coast homes. Their property in British
Columbia has been confiscated. By action of
the British Columbia Security Commission, the
agency in charge of Japanese-Canadian affairs,
those Japanese-Canadians who wish to return
to their former homes in British-Columbia (and
95 per cent of the Japanese-Canadians have
lived there all their lives) may be thereby judged
disloyal to Canada and issued their passports.
"Failure to agree to resettlement outside of
British Columbia by those evacuated Jap-
anese-Canadians not wanting to sign appli-
cations for voluntary repatriation to Japan
may be regarded by the proposed Loyalty Tri-
bunal, when it is established, as evidence of
lack of cooperation with the government of
Canada," stated the Security Commission in
its March 16 announcement.
Still other means exist whereby the Canadian
government and certain Canadians may succeed
in convincing their citizens of Japanese descent
that they wish "voluntary" deportation. Jap-
anese-Canadians cannot enter any profession or
business in many areas, where the government
agencies concerned will not issue licenses to
these refugees from the West Coast. Also,
Japanese-Canadians, except for the few who
were in Ontario before the war, have no fran-
chise rights.
Thus, anyone who believes that the United
States should follow the model set by the Can-
adian government, as suggested by the editor-
ial to which I have referred, is either un-
democratically-minded or dangerously mis-
informed.

Picture Banned
ONE OF THE less well-known motion picture
companies (Artkino-Irvin Shapiro) has made
a film entitled "We Accuse." The picture, which
deals with the Kharkov war criminal trials,
shows photographs of the assorted heinous
crimes for which the men on trial pleaded
guilty.
The picture "We Accuse" has been banned by
the Hays office because it shows atrocity shots
more than once and employs the word "damn"
once. The semi-documentary picture, the con-
text of which should be familiar to every Amer-

ican, will not be shown at any of the regular
theatres for two of the stupidest reasons on
record. If an atrocity shot may be shown once,

By DREW PEARSON
WASHINGTON-Auto workers union president
R. J. Thomas pleaded with production genius
Henry J. Kaiser during a recent West Coast
conference to break the back of the automobile
monopoly by going into the auto industry.
Thomas pointed out that the country was just
begging for a good low-priced car, and that the
Detroit manufacturers had no desire to pro-
duce.
Kaiser, despite his enthusiasm for making
automobiles, pointed out there are a number of
hurdles which even a man with his organization
would have to overcome.
"For example," Kaiser said, "we'll need lots of
first class auto engineers. Won't they be hard
to hire?"
"Nonsense," replied the auto workers chief,
"Detroit is full of engineers 'who are fed up
with the lack of progress. They would go to
work for enybody who would give the Detroit
magnates a little competition."
Kaiser reviewed his personal experience in
reconnoitering the auto industry, explaining how
parts manufacturers had agreed to produce for
the Kaiser car, but turned around the next day
and said "no" after they talked to their regular
customers.
"There is a monopoly back in Detroit that
ought to be looked into," Thomas said. "I
talked to Truman about it and he said he'd
look ihto it."
But Thomas also pointed out that thousands
of small producers would jump at the chance to
become subcontractors for Kaiser.
Kaiser then asked Thomas why the industry
only planned to produce 200,000 cars in the last
half of 1945.
"Two hundred thousand cars is nothing,"
replied Thomas. "But by stalling on produc-
tion they hope to steal the plants the govern-
ment built for them. They want to buy those
plants for peanuts.
"That's why I think Ford announced he's clos-
ing down Willow Run."
In the end Kaiser drove Thomas to a secret
factory to show his latest experimental car.
It it the 20th car Kaiser has developed, gets
45 miles on a gallon, is just as roomy as other
low-priced cars, weighs half as much and will
sell for several hundred dollars under its near-
est competitor.
Kaiser promised to speed up his plans for auto
production and turn out the new streamlined
car on the West Coast soon.
Women WPB Chiefs .
WHEN top war production executives met for
a recent staff meeting, WPB chairman "Cap"
Krug was amazed to find half a dozen women
sitting among the top 150 staff members. This
was the first time he had seen any members of
the fairer sex at his meetings, so he quickly im-
provised some appropriate remarks.
"It is especially gratifying to address this
gathering today," Krug said, "because of the
presence of a sprinkling of women. I must
say that I am pleased that WPB officialdom
has finally come to its senses and raised at
least a few women to positions of responsibility
high enough to mean their inclusion at this
session of division chiefs. I think it a fine
thing.
"I have observed that the Russians have had
excellent results with women in executive pos-
itions-positions of trust both in military and
civilian life. I am sure our experience will be
the same"''
A curious press agent checked up on the
women present-found two of them were
members of WPB's information staff assigned
to write summaries of the meeting for the rest
of the information office. The other four
were stenographers brought in by their bosses
to take notes of the proceedings.
Battle of Textiles...
IN THE BATTLE of cotton which has been
raging backstage between the Army and
civilians, Judge Vinson has finally succeeded in
getting the Army to cut its requirements for
cotton cloth. This will mean more shirts, under-
wear and cotton dresses for civilians.
So far, however, the Army is sticking to its
demand for all worsted cloth that can be turned
out. It is already receiving all U.S. worsted
production since January and will continue to

do so through September. This means that
already low stocks of men's clothing will go
much lower and will be wiped out unless the
Army is finally persuaded to take less worsteds.
The Army intends to issue new summer and
winter uniforms to every soldier going from the
O N SECOND
4 THOUGHT...
By Ray Dixon
WE'VE BEEN real happy lately, what with the
House approval of Bretton Woods and the
successful solution of the veto problem in San
Francisco, but now a Senate committee comes
along and blocks the reciprocal trade exten-
sion n. * * *
What a tariff let-down.
"Jap Diet Called Into Emergency Session"
says a headline. The American diet is not
doing too red hot either.

European theater to the Pacific, since the battle
uniforms used in Europe are almost all worn
out. But textile men believe the Army is plan-
ning to build up a greater inventory that it
needs, and based on this, War Mobilizer Vinson
is trying to persuade the Army to take less.
Capital Chaff . . .
BECAUSE no Negro fighters are seen in the
Navy's film of Iwo Jima, even though Sec-
retary Forrestal had seen 2,000 Negro Marines
on the island, Forrestal has ordered his film
makers to prepare a special film showing Negroes
in various Naval services... Broadcasting Mag-
azine-a radio trade journal--blames newspaper
reporters covering the White House for the re-
moval of Leonard Reinsch as White House press
secretary less than a week after his appointment.
Publisher Sol Taishoff claimed the newsmen
didn't want a radio man in the job for fear he'd
give radio more news breaks than the press. He
gives the newspaper reporters credit for a job
they might have done if they could have, but
actually Reinsch's removel was urged by higher
quarters.

CONFORMIST, heretic and reconstructionist
constitute the three types of reaction within
any religious constituency. The first keeps the
tradition vigorous, the second discovers discrep-
ancies between the goal and the present status,
criticizes the tradition, and renews a vision of
the ultimate, and the third struggles to fuse
values conserved by the first with the energy
and vision introduced by the second. What of
the intellectual in that constituency? What of
the immediate reconstruction?
Two statements in the book. The Gospel That
Jesus Preached, by A. T. Cadeaux, arrest at-
tention: "The unmistakably clear teaching of
Jesus on the matter is that God forgives men
who ask forgiveness, provided they are willing to
forgive their fellow men" and "Jesus undoubted-
ly looked for a future consummation of the
kingdom of God, but it is quite as certain that
he thought of it as a present factor in the
world." These statements bring every religious
person face to face with some of the most chal-
lenging questions in human history. We have
been partners in stopping tyranny of sweeping
breadth and solemn depth, and in doing so our
strategists believed we had to take the sword,
including annihilation from the sky, precision
bombing of great cities, destruction of the very
civilization we have helped create and have come
to love. How shall we practice our Christianity
now? Shall we be conformists, kneeling at the
familiar altars, keeping the customary hours of
fast, proceeding as usual to worship in safety
and comfort while millions face starvation as a
fate over and above the death of their own youth
plus the loss of their homes, businesses and fu-
tures?
The radical will warn us that no Christian
dares to so worship. It is necessary for him
to become a crusader for the good God whose
suffering exceeds that of which his children
are capable. Men dare not do less than ap-
proach this social pathos with an inventive-
ness equal to the need. For example, in a
church recently where twenty students were
discussing justice and relief, a European boy
said, "Every congregation in Christendom
might well merge its budget completely in
that relief for at least a whole year, for every
denomination could thus finance hundreds of
trained persons to supplement UNNRA with
its Allied millions for the people in distress in
Europe."
Here is where the reconstructionist, flanked
by the conformist at ease in Zion, and the rebel
who cannot rest until something definite is
done, will find a constructive attack upon the
situation. Religious bodies, in spite of their
seeming fragmentariness, compared to a sweep-
ing governmental unit within the victor nations,
have afoot some strong drives in behalf of the
victims of those sad sister countries. One drive
made by a denomination, chiefly American, set
a goal of $25,000000 and in record time not only

subscribed it but over subscribed by $1,000,000
and more than $11,000,000 of payment of those
pledges have reached the Chicago treasurer.
Every ecclesiastical unit, Jewish, Catholic and
Protestant and the co-ordinating agencies are
ingeniously alert. That is one answer.
A more basic reply, ideologically, will be
made by those who, like Justice Jackson, must
deal with war guilt and international punish-
ment. Every good mystic will pray daily for
such officers, for upon this action will turn
that deep eternal question of mutual forgive-
ness without which an orderly world at peace
can scarcely come to pass.
Francis J. Spellman prays:
Oh God of Justice!
Repent not making of us an instrument of
right,
Spending our blood, spilling it freely, curb-
ing mad nations;
But grant that in Victory we not offend thy
justice.

Preserves Freedom
Beveridge Plan'
FULL EMPLOYMENT IN A FREE
SOCIETY by William H.Beveridge.
New York, W. W. Norton & Co.,
1945. $3.75.
DURING the next few years it will
be determined whether a free
democratic society can intelligently
plan its economic life in order to
provide basic minimum standards of
living for its people and yet maintain
its characteristic liberties which we
cherish so highly. It is possible that
our present institutions are intrins-
ically too weak to cope with such
deep rooted economic questions. Only
the passing of time can give us a
final answer. But if a solution can
be found in a free society like our
own, that solution will be the results
of plans and policies like those pre-
sented by William Beveridge.
Mr. Beveridge proposes a plan
which is designed to give the peo-
ple the necessary minimum stand-
ard of living which they are en-
titled to and yet preserve the es-
sential liberties of our society.
The basic problem to be solved, ac-
cording to Beveridge, is the unem-
ployment problem. Closely following
the analysis of John Maynard
Keynes, Beveridge points out that
unemployment is the result of de-
ficiency of demand for goods on the
market. He proposes to augment
the demand for goods by a planned
program of government spending.
The basic plan can be stated in
five general points.
1. There should be communal out-
lay on roads, hospitals, defense, etc.
Construction of these necessary in-
stitutions would cause fuller employ-
ment and would increase the wealth
.of the community materially.
2. There should be public business
investment in socialized sections of
industry, like utilities. In order to
prevent this investment from com-
peting with private investment, Bev-
eridge says the government should
only invest if private business de-
clines to do so. Thus the govern-
ment investment would be a net ad-
dition to total investment outlay of
the community.
3. There should be regulation of
private investment. By this it is
meant that the .government should
assist industry by means of low in-
terest date loans in such a way as to
stabilize private investment as much
as possible.
4. The collective demand for es-
sential consumption goods should be
supplied through ordinary channels.
The price of basic goods may be low-
ered by subsidy if necessary.
5. Increase of private consump-
tion outlay both as the automatic
result of an increase in income and
by redistribution of incomes through
Social Security and progressive tax-
ation.
Thus, by insuring an adequate
demand for goods, it is claimed
that further government inter-
ference with society would be un-
necessary. For while our capital-
istic system sometimes is incapable
of giving people the necessary buy-
ing power to purchase that which
is already produced, it has gen-
erally been very capable of produc-
ing goods for which there is a de-
mand. Therefore, Mr. Beveridge
proposes to insure demand and al-
low the economy to supply that de-
mand with a minimum of regula-
tion and a maximum of freedom.

Words Erased
AFTER A PROTEST from the Nat-
ional Association for the Ad-

vancement of Colored People, the
publishers of Roget's Thesaurus have
agreed to omit the list of synonyms
for the words "Negro" and "Jew."
A reader speculates how long it
will take Americans, in this age of
progress, to "follow through" on
this step toward better racial re-
lations and erase the words from
their active vocabulary and elim-
inate the meanings and implica-
tions of such words from their
minds and life.
-Pat Cameron
SS Prisoners
THE LONDON Evening Standard
recently reported that 700 sur-
rendered SS prisoners in Lambach,
l Austria, had formally petitioned the
Third Army colonel commanding
their camp to allow them to join the
American Army.
Reason: They wanted to fight the
Japs.
Result: The request was refused.
Patriotism has many faces, it
seems, and the task is to decide which
is the cleanest.
