WE'D LIKE to pay tribute to the Class of 4
Not only the 1,400 odd of them who il'
graduate a week from tomorrow.
But the hundreds who quit school after bare-
ly getting started to fight and die in a war that
was not of their making.
It was September, 1941 that the Class of
'45 first entered the University. War clouds
were on the horizon, but very few of the fresh-
men were worrying about them at the tim,
The University was still operating in a peace-
time atmosphere. East and West Quads were
full-of civilians. There were many more
fellows than girls on campus. Fraternities
and co-ops were going full blast. The WoI
verine cooperative eating restaurant was cat-
ering to a lot of students. Christmas vacation
was a full two weeks long.
Then came Pearl Harbor.
It took a little while for it to affect the Class
of '45. Then gradually students began to drop
out of school to enlist. Pretty soon almost
everyone was in some sort bf a reserve program.
Quite a few were granted deferments for the
semester or two or three. But gradually a large
percentage drifted away into the Armed Forces.
A few 4-F's were left and a whole lot of girls.
Many of these decided to go through school on
the accelerated program and were granted as
much as a full year before they ordinarily would
Stories began drifting back of' the feats of
the men in service from the Class of '45 who
were overseas. Some got desk jobs. Many
were in the thick of battle. Not a few died.
(We can think of three reporters on The Daily
who would probably have been senior editors
Now veterans from the Class of '45 have begun
to return to school after serving their time in the
Army, Navy or Marines. They are older and
have a greater appreciation of the value of a
college education, Many of them are sopho-
mores and freshmen and yet have had their
twenty-first birthday. More will be returning
in the terms to come.
The members of the Class of '45 who are
graduating a week from tomorrow have a big
job ahead-the job of helping to shape a
peaceful world. It is for that reason they have
been permitted to remain in the quiet atmo-
sphere of a university town while the rest of
the world is in turmoil.
Yes, the Class of '45 is an exceptional one.
We pay tribute to it. -Ray Dixon.

OUR RELATION with Russia is in a quiet
phase now, The New York Herald Tribune
reports with satisfaction that Russian delegates,
oil close view, appear very much like human be-
ings. The New York Times lists ten conces-
sions made by Russia to her allies in the first
45 days of the Conference; one every 4.5 days,
not bad. The veto compromise has made the
passing moment an amiable one; but, of course,
by the time these words appear we may have
struck a new snag. The line on the chart which
records the state of our fears about Russia may
shoot up to a high, from its present low. It is
the hope of mankind that the gyrations on that
chart will in time cease to be big waves, and
become little waves, and then wavelets, and
will finally settle down as a more or less straight
line, called peace.
It would help if we would objectively realize
that we are passing through an immense and
stormy time of the choosing of alternatives.
We are a nation making up its mind about the
only other nation of comparable power in the
world. That is not easy. The emergence of Rus-
sia as a great European power is bound to
have a shock impact around the world; Amer-
icans cannot be blamed for sensing it, feeling
it, wondering about the future. They would be
curiously numb if they didn't. What has hap-
pened is that ever since May 12, V-E Day,
we have been testing out alternative policies
toward Russia in our public discussion. This
has been .a time of the testing of ideas.
ilostile Policy Rejected * . .
THE FIRST IDEA, quickly advanced in small
sections of the press and Congress, was that
of war, or something very like war, against Rus-
sia, It has not sold well. Mrs. Clare Luce's
position of bitter and unredeemed hostility
toward the Russian government has not made
her a heroine; she has had her moment on the
platform, but the bucks of the town have not
offered to pull her carriage through the streets.
She has spoken, and she has sat down. Our
month of debate may already be said to have
tested out this approach, and to have rejected
A second approach has taken the form of a
kind of inward-turning; it has shown up as
bitterness against Americans who entertain
more or less friendly sentiments toward Rus-
sia. A sneer has been created; those who
advocate friendship are said to belong to the
"Russia is always right" school. Actually, the
"Russia is always wrong" school is so much
bigger and more important than the "Russia
is always right" school, that the lat-
ter can hardly be said to be a menace, or
indeed more than a mild corrective influence.
I mention this only to show that one of the
products of our effort to make up our minds
about Russia has been an increase of domestic
War Once Removed s -
ATHIRD approach has been to suggest that
we draw a line; thus far may Russia go,
and no farther. This sounds a little easier to do
than, perhaps, it would prove to be, in practice.
The ability to draw a line is also' the ability to

1 0 THE EDITOR:
In Mr. Rosenberg's editorial of June 12, he
made an unmerited attack on the fraternity sys-
tem. For a less biased viewpoint on the college
fraternity it would be well to point out some of
the more glaring aberations from fact and logic
in Mr. Rosenberg's article.
In the opening paragraphs Mr. Rosenberg
makes the statement the fraternities do not sup-
port the organized pursuit of knowledge and
recites for proof "the fact that the membership
of these organizations is made up of men and
women who regularly do poorer work in school
than independents is just as significant as it
seems." Very true, Mr. Rosenberg, if the state-
ment has any basis in fact. Which, we might
add in a quiet whisper, it hasn't. Might I sug-
gest to you, Mr. Rosenberg, that you refer to the
Interfraternity Councils' figures from 1938 to
1942, the last year for which these figures were
published. This table will prove that fraternities
have a higher average than independents, The
figures are 2.495 for all fraternities and 2.490
for all men.
The second point in Mr. Rosenberg's article
is that fraternities segregate students into
class, religious, and racial lines. Allow me to
point out that the policies of fraternities are
determined by the membership thereof, and
not by that nonexistant entity, the frater-
nity. Any organization reflects the views of its
constituents, who would have the same views
regardless of the organization. The root of.
the whole business goes much deeper than its
manifestation, Mr. Rosenberg. The individual,
not the fraternity is at fault. You will have
to change the thinking of the whole nation;
not the organization which manifests these
The condition is certainly regrettable, but the
seat of the evil is much deeper than the frater-
nity. -William Penoyar

THlE TIME has come for the summing up.
How does the world of today look to this
jaundiced eye? Truthfully, not very pretty.
Realpolitik has been re-enthroned. Rival im-
perial interests have already begun to clash and
slash at one another with Nazism hardly cold
in its German grave. The affair in Damascus
demonstrates that aggressiveness has suffered no
diminution in the European psyche and armed
conflict can occur at any time between England
and France, France and Russia, Russia and the
San Francisco, overblown to begin with, has
given us no succor or hope for a just and dur-
able peace. Edmund Wilson reports from Lon-
don that British dislike for America is greater
than ever. Isolationism continues to corrode
this country and the U.S.S.R., whose amicable
relations have withstood one shock after an-
other albeit amidst continual misunderstand-
ing. Whatever revolutionary content the war
may seem to have had by the gratuitous
investment of the left, has now certainly dis-
THE ALLIES are part way through a war of
self-defense fought for the preservation of
their boundaries against a military threat.. The
war is on those grounds justifiable. That it
would have been immensely more than this is a
fact some people have not as yet fully realized.
Arthur Koestler, who is right about most things
except his insanely prejudiced assessment of
Soviet Russia, is especially sagacious when he
observes that we have been fighting a whole
lie with a half truth. Fascism, still so viable in
our society whether or no Hitler, its symbol,
is alive, has always stood for evil. We, on the
other hand, have not sufficiently purified our
democracy to the point where it can do battle
with this bestial foe and win a total moral vic-
Over 750,000,000 colored human beings are
still enslaved in colonial stys. One young
Negro, upen being inducted into the American
service, is reported to have said, "Just carve
on my tombstone: Here lies a black man killed
fighting a yellow man for the protection of
the white man." Carey McWilliams, who
tells us about this episode, has elsewhere point-
ed out that we have two American traditions:
the one generous, liberal and democratic, the
other bigoted and authoritarian. Which will
prevail? Can the voice of Walt Whitman be
heard, "Oh America, because I build for man-
kind, I build for you"?
The race problem is international in scope.
The Eastern people have smarted under our heel
for too long. They are now aroused and mili-
tant, But, some of the wisest prophets who
see the inexorability of this war between races
unless we turn our ideas of white supremacy
inside out are engaged in the fomentation of
war with Russia, If we of the West lose Russia,
that mighty nation with all of its resources and
manpower will be committed to our downfall-
and when one billion and a half people are
matched against the remaining quarter of the
human race it is not difficult to guess who will
This generation, with its legacy of death,
ethically debauched, bloody, its senses blunted,
faces the lovely and beatific prospect of rais-
ing still another generation to fight a bigger
war. Call it pessimism if you like. To me,
no other stand is admissable.
WE LIVE in an era during which there has been
-to use the words of Cyril Connely-"A
general deterioration of humanity and (one
that has) seen the whole world move noisily
into the Dehydra-headed epoch of utility" The
arts are in decline, science has sold its soul-
and neither is the particular concern of Ameri-
can universities whose chief interests grow
more commercial and vocational by the day.
Sexual immorality exists as never before-and
what with seven or eight million spinsters ex-
pected in post-war America. it will probably
get worse. The '50's should resemble the '20's
in many ways except that there is less reason
to expect a recrudescence of art.
In parting let me express the hope that all
this is a fantasy, a long unreal journey into
lay down the law; and those who have the power
to draw a line would also have the power to
move the line; and such assertions do not tend
toward an increase of friendship. As generally
stated, the policy of "drawing a line" is a policy
of hostility and warning, a policy of war once
The better approach would seem to be not
to draw the line, but to find the line. This is
where the wrangle and muddle of San Fran-
cisco have turned out to be more useful than all
our attempts to pluck a formula out of the air.
After seven weeks of great noises, back and
forth, we have a lull, an amiable moment.
We will cling to the hope that time has a
logic no single moment ever has; and that the
wild vibrations in the curve of our feelings
about Russia will settle down to that barely
perceptible quiver which passes for stability
in human affairs.
