THE SUCCESS of the Michigan Book-Buying
Club, organized by a handful of enterpris-
ing students who are trying to give the students
a square deal in the sale of books and supplies,
depends on the willing participation of all stu-
The club has no large reserve of capital pro-
vided by interested persons outside the student
body. Its entire operation must be financed by
student members.
With this in view, the temporary executive
board and other solicitors are willingly giving
their time during this week before finals to
sign up sufficient membership to get the Book
Club started by next week.
No one has to be told what an urgent need
exists on tis campus for a cooperative book
club, where students can purchase books and
supplies with the knowledge that no unreas-
onable profits are being made at their expense.
The Michigan Book-Buying Club is a non-profit
organization, all money accruing from the sale
of books being returned at the end of the term
to the club's members or else reinvested in more
books and supplies.
Furthermore, the Michigan Book-Buying
Club is a democratically run organization with
its own constitution. The members decide on
all policies and the club is administered by an
executive board popularly elected at regular
intervals by the minbership. At present,
the. club is run by the students whose work
has put it into operation, and who have con-
stituted themselves as a temporary execu-
tive board which will remain in office until a
general election to be held the first month of
the summer term. -Arthur J. Kraft
FEPC Killed
THE REFUSAL of the House Rules Committee
to send the bill for a permanent Fair Em-
ployment Practices to the floor for a vote marks
a serious retreat from the program to eliminate
discrimination in employment because of race,
creed or color.
Such discrimination has been thoroughly dis-
credited by our victorious war over German
fascism but six of our Southern senators, Slaugh-
ter and Smith of Virginia, Cox of Georgia, Bates
of Kentucky,' Colmer of Mississippi and Clark
of North Carolina still are clinging to the super
race doctrines so ably enunciated in "Mein
That the request for a permanent FEPC
should be turned down at the same time that
the House passed the anti-Poll Tax Bill by a
sizeable majority is particularly significant.
It indicates that this nation as a whole is op-
posed to discrimination and is ready to wipe
out the poll tax, a major obstacle to true
That six of the 12 members of the House
Rules. Committee should be 'white supremacy'

reactionaries is a partictllrly unfortunate cir-
cumstance. This instance serves to emphasize
the ability of these six to block progressive
measures which the nation wants.

WASHINGTON-The State Department isn't
ahnouncing it, but Ambassador Tarchiani
has made an unusual move by proposing that
Italy declare war against Japan and help supply
troops for the Pacific war.
The State Department took the matter under
advisement, and after some deliberation with
the British, both governments agreed to approve
an Italian declaration of war against Mussolini's
old Axis partner, Japan.
However, here is the catch. . Both the Brit-
ish and American governments refuse to make
any commitments to supply shipping or to
Piermit Italian troops to participate in the
What the Italian government will decide to do
under the circumstances remains to be seen.
Maritime Scandals . .
SENATOR George Aiken, liberal Vermont Re-
publican, is preparing a hot blast against
one of the weak spots in the old Roosevelt ad-
ministration-the Maritime Commission. The
blast isn't going to help Chairman Emory Land's
ambition to be a full admiral.
Senator Aiken will point out that four separ-
ate reports by Comptroller-General Lindsay
Warren, describing Maritime Commission's mis-
use of public funds, have been nonchalantly
pigeon-holed in the Senate Commerce Commit-
Sanctimonious Senator Josiah Bailey of that
committee was named chairman of a special
committee to investigate the Maritime Com-
mission as long ago as 1938. He has now spent
$17,000 of the $20,000 allowed for expenses,
but has reported exactly nothing to Congress.
Senator Aiken will point out that since Jan-
uary of this year, some-but not all-Maritime
Commission contracts have carried these two
amazing provisions, certainly not aimed to save
money for the taxpayer:
"The contractor shall have no obligation to
make any statements or returns of costs to
the commission or to make available to the
commission any of its books, records or ac-
counts pertaining to the performance of work
under the vessels contracts.
"The contractor shall have no further or other
obligations under the vessels contract or on
account of the performance of work thereunder,
including any obligation to repair, remedy, re-
place or make good any defects, breakdown or
deterioration occurring in any vessel delivered
under the vessels contract."
In addition, Aiken will point out that the
commission has insured hundreds of vessels
for many times their actual value. The Ne-
braskan, for instance, was built in 1912 at a
cost of $713,000, and was estimated five years
ago by Admiral Land to be worth $110,199.
On its owners' books it is listed as worth
$5,276, but the Maritime Commission ha in-
sured it for the amazing total of $1,019,320.
The Nevadan, built in 1912 for $616,000 and
listed by its owners at $3,457, has been in-
sured for $806,800.
Brazen Tariff Lobbying ...
BRASSY ex-Senator Danaher of Connecticut is
doing his best to. carry out the traditions of
his state when it comes to backstage lobbying.
He has one of the most unique lobbying rackets
Washington has seen since the days of his prede-
cessor, Hiram Bingham.
Dannaher, as an ex-senator, has access to the
Senate floor. He can walk in, sit down in a
Senate seat, and whisper with his former col-
leagues about legislation on which they are vot-
ing. This gives him a unique opportunity for
He also occupies a unique psition otherwise.
He is the office manager of the Republican
national committee in Washington, in fact the
most important member of the GOP organiz-
ation there, due to the fact that Herbert
Brownell is usually in New York. In addition,
Danaher operates a Washington law office.
Thus he can go on the Senate floor and put
across the ideas of either the Republican
national committee or his law clients or both.
And he does.

During recent debates on the reciprocal trade
agreements act, he has been especially active.
Not only has he been on the Senate floor, but

T HE CAMPUS organization for the promotion
of world peace which got such a swell start
last week has finally received a temporary name

* * * *
If this name is approved by the University,
it will undoubtedly be shortened to SOIC,
which will at least fit in a headline even if it
is not especially phonetic.
Let's hope that it doesn't go the way of so
many other past student organizations and be-
come a soic circle.

he has been holding consultations with Con-
gressman Knutsen of Minnesota GOP leader
who led the fight against the Trade Agreements
Act in the house, The two have stood in a
Senate corridor and operated a little lobby bur
eau of their own. /
Some years ago, the Senate passed a reso-
lution severely censuring another Connecticut
Republican senator, Hiram Bingham, for tak-
ing advantage of his office to do some tariff
lobbying. Brazenly he brought the represent-
ative of the Connecticut Manufacturers As-
sociation, C. L. Eyanson, into a closed commit-
tee meeting which was considering the Smoot-
Hawley tariff. Senators in those days didn't
let Bingham get away with it.

O WI App roprviations
J'HE HOUSE of Representatives has cut the
annual appropriation for the Office of War
Information from a recommended $35.000,000
to $17,500,000; and a great many conservatively-
minded Americans are delighted. They feel that
a great victory has been won. They are not
quite sure what sort of victory it is, or over what,
but, anyway, a victory. I have with sinking
heart read the Congressional Record's account
of the debate which preceded this slash in the
House. It is one of the most absurd debates in
the history of the national legislature; important
only for the light it throws on our crossed pur-
poses at the moment, our fears, our agitations.
our wild stabs, and our petrified attitudes.
Mr. Taber, of New York, led off with the
amendment proposing the slash. It was obvious
that he had taken a hacksaw and cut the pro-
posed $35,000,000 appropriation neatly in half
to get his figure of $17,500,000: no more com-
plicated mental process than this had gone
on in him.
That is a pretty vague way in which to cut
appropriations. But Mr. Taber immediately
found himself some vague support, in the person
of Mr. Vorys, of Ohio, who rose to point out
that the entire Associated Press operates on a
budget of only $12,000,000. Well, and what of
it? The Associated Press operates no radio sta-
tions; it is not engaged in dropping leaflets on
Tokyo; it does not have the job of getting Ital-
ians and Germans (and Turks and Portuguese
and Russians) to understand what America is
all about. The Associated Press and the Office
of War Information are not in the same business.
But no matter, it was a comparison, neat, if not
to the point.
11R. WOODRUM of Virginia, himself a strong
economy advocate, tried valiantly to stem
the arm-waving. He explained that the Euro-
pean countries we have conquered are in a state
of chaos, and need our information services
more than ever; he tried to tell something of
OWI's technical functions of explaining Army
regulations to liberated peoples, etc.
But the interlude was a short one; Mr. Wood-
rum was followed by Mr. Case of South Dakota,
who demanded hotly to be told at once why we
need 895 OWI employees in San Francisco, when
we have "our own news services" such as AP and
UP. The answer of course, is that OWI sends
news out of the country, while AP and UP bring
it into the country; their functions couldn't be
more different.
Mr. Harness of Arizona then defended OWI
but was followed by Mrs. Clare Boothe Luce,
who did an interesting little speech, pert, gay,
sizzling, and quite wrong as to facts. She said
she had checked into the OWI office in San
Francisco, and had found that its total output
fer a day was 13 radio scripts. She made quite
a- .thingabout .895 workers producing .13
scripts; she was funny as she could be, in her
characteristic manner. Later i the afternoon
it developed that Mrs. Luce had had reference
only to OWI scripts in the Japanese language.
It turns out, incredibly enough, that other
languages are spoken in the Pacific, and that,
the San iFrancisco office of OW gets out 200
scripts a day, in more than twenty tongues and

HAVE SPACE now only to mention Mr. Rich
of Pennsylvania, whom I must quote. Mr.
Rich said: "Yesterday the ma.iority of the Men-
bers of the House voted to increase their sal-
aries $2500 -- $2500. That will require about
$1,500,000. If you cut this one item out here
you will save $35,000,000, or you will save 20
times more than you increased your salaries on
yesterday . . Is that not good business? I say
it is."
It was an off-the-beam afternoon; a field
day for violent prejudices, having almost
nothing to do with the matter in hand. It told
us little about the OWl, but a great deal about
ourselves. And as a final, almost unbelievable
comment on the slovenliness of the occasion,
it must be put down that the Republican side
was able to force the slash through by the nar-
row margin of 138 to 128 because only 266
members were present, out of 433. More than
160 were absent, for it was Friday afternoon,
beginning of the weekend.
