WASHINGTON-Secretary of Commerce Hen-
ry Wallace will make no changes around his
new department for sixty days, until he gets
the feel of the place. After that he will do
some real reorganizing and rebuild a new,
streamlined Commerce Department from the
ground up.
Wallace refused to make any deals in advance
of his confirmation and is now absolutely free
to wield the ax. One backstage deal was offered
to win the vote of Admiral-Senator Tommy Hart
of Connecticut. Miss Margaret Conners, who
nearly defeated Clare Luce last November, re-
ported that the Admiral was ready to vote
for Wallace if Wayne Chatfield Taylor would
be retained as under secretary. Wallace, how-
ever, refused to promise and in the end, Ad-
miral Hart voted for Wallace anyway.
Not many people knew it, but Democratic
chairman Bob Hannegan, the man who led the
fight against Henry Wallace for vice-presi-
dent at Chicago, had a private dinner with
Henry in the latter's apartment shortly be-
fore the Senate voted his confirmation.
The dinner climaxed a new friendship be-
tween the two, which began at the start of
the Wallace confirmation battle.
At first, friends had a hard time getting the
two men together. Wallace still remembered
how Hannegan fought him at Chicago. Hanne-
gan also was aloof about butting in. A news-
paperman who knew both men was largely
instrumental in patching things up.
"Did Wallace ask you whether you wanted
help when he pitched in during the campaign
last summer and made all those speeches for
Roosevelt and Truman?" he asked Hannegan.
"There isn't anything I wouldn't do for
Wallace," countered Hannegan, "But I don't
know what his strategy is. And I'm liable to
get his wires crossed if I start working with-
out any direction.from him."
However, Hannegan, then in New York, was
finally persuaded to telephone Wallace, also in
New York, with the result that they had lunch,

and Hannegan has been working hard fof
Wallace ever since.
At dinner last week they exchanged ideas on
various things: How to keep the Democratic
party liberal; how to make 60,000,000 jobs; how
to streamline government agencies. Ex-Repub-
lican Wallace will consult staunch Democrat
Hannegan on appointments to the Commerce
Department though he won't be bound by Hanne-
gan's advice.
Jesse Jones and Alcoa
. S. REYNOLDS, vigorous organizer of the
Reynolds Metal Company which did such a
good job of enabling the nation to produce
wartime aluminum, told the Senate small busi-
ness committee last week the story of his
difficulties in getting aid from Jesse Jones'
Apparently anxious to protect the monopoly
of the Aluminum Company of America, Jones
put every possible obstacle in front of Rey-
nolds when it came to financing his alumi-
nuni project.
After telling the Senate Committee most of
the story, Reynolds remarked that he had a
confidential talk with Jones after the Reynolds
Metal Company had gone into operation and
shown its stability.
"You know, Reynolds," Jones had said, "Ev-
erybody thought you were going to go broke.
I did, too. Why didn't you?"
Reynolds replied, "Because you are dealing
with a very unusual person."
"Jones thought I was going to do a little brag-
ging at that point," Reynolds told the senators.
"All I said was that I had God Almighty on my
Following which Connecticut's hard-working
senator Brien McMahon remarked: "What it
adds up to is-God Almighty and you versus
Alcoa and RFC."
Note--The Aluminum Corporation, hitherto
enjoying an outright monopoly in this coun-
try, also drew up estimates for Ed Stettinius,
then in charge of National Defense raw ma-
terials, claiming that no new aluminum plants
were needed. Ed believed them.

Semester Aims
IT IS perhaps unnecessary to say that The
Michigan Daily is beginning another semester
of war-time publication for a war-time campus.
There have been so many such semesters that
we have achieved some sort of war-time normal-
cy. But the existence of this normalcy does not
diminish the responsibilities which are entailed
in publishing a college newspaper during war.
We, the senior editors of The Daily for
the spring semester, pledge ourselves to the
highest ideals possible for this coming semes-
ter. We aim to give as complete and accu-
rate coverage as nossible of international, na-
tional, and University news. We should like
The Daily to accurately reflect campus
opinion. This means that not only mem-
bers of the staff should take advantage of The
Daily's editorial columns but also that the
student body and faculty should feel free to
express their views in Letters to the Editor.
We should like to emphasize that the editor-
ials written by members of the staff represent
the beliefs of the writers only and are not an
indication of staff "policy." We shall endeavor
to present both sides of any issue. We invite
letters to the editor which are written from
an interested, enlightened viewpoint, no mat-
ter what stand is taken.
We should like The Daily to be a vital in-
strument in awakening and energizing our
camus and in fostering student interest and
initiative. For these things we shall work
throughout this semester,

REEDOM of the press to be exercised as an
effective tool for democratic ideals was bol-
stered recently by a decision handed down- by the
Supreme Court of the State of New York
which affirmed the right of a newspaper to re-
ject any advertising it considered discriminatory.
State Supreme Court Justice William H.
Murray ruled that the press had "a right to
edit or reject in good faith advertising copy
submitted for publication," the Associated
Press reported.
Attorneys for the advertisers were denied an
injunction to restrain the New York Times
from deleting words "selected clientele" from
an ad vertisemen t submitted by a summer reot.
The attorneys sought to force the newLSP4 C
to print the advertisement as submitted.
Justice Murray ruled that the words were a
"cloak" and an "indirect means to hide discrimi-
nation," the A. P. revealed.
A decision favorable to the advertisers would
have hamstring any attempts by the news-
paper to control advertising and would have
implied that purchase of news-space in any
publication carried with it an inviolable right
to print anything governed only by the laws of
The newspaper would have been unable to bar
copy contrary to public welfare or to its edit-

orial policy. Allegations of any nature, respon-
sible only to the particular self-interest of the

18-Year-Old Vote Discussed

i Ai

THE State House Committee on Constitutional
Amendments will meet tonight in Lansing to
consider the question of whether or not Michi-
gan 18-year-olds should have the right to vote.
Looking at the 18-year--old vote question from
an objective point of view, it seems that the
proposal amending the state constitution should
be passed.
The value of casting a ballot can be measured,
in a sense, on how well-informed the voter is
on current political issues. It is not a well-
enough known fact, but nevertheless a fact,
that there are more well-informed people, rela-
tively, between the ages of 18 and 21 than be-
tween 1 and 60. That estimate is made on a
per capita basis considering the total number
in each age group.
Behind every legislative and judicial move,
there can -be found a direct effect on the
youth of the nation. Yet the youth, that is
the real youth, those persons between the
ages of 18 and 21, have comparatively little
voice in the government.
This nation's lack of interest in channeliz-
ing the efforts of youth into productive pro-
gressive causes is one of the underlying reasons
for U.'S. political and social mediocrity.
Between the high school graduation and at-
taining 21 years of age there is a gap in which
youth can play little part in the voting and elec-
toral scene. As far as the electorate is con-
cerned, youths between 18 and 21 are political
non-entities who are in the process of being
tutored - by established political and economic
forces which display glaring shortcomings.
Thus, we have failed, to a large degree, to
ri ake America's youth "government conscious."
Of course, the entire nation, at one time or
another, makes or attempts to make a conscious
effort to forget the government.
It would be a wise move on the part of the
state legislators to listen to the testimony
presented tonight and vote in the affirmative
for any state measure which would open the
way to Michigan's youth for a voice in the
government of this state.
-Bob Goldman

SINCE the 18-year-old-vote was made a na-
tional issue in 1942 by the Affiliated Young
Democrats of New York City, (most of whose
members, by the way, are well over 18 years of
age), it has met wide disapproval and a notable
lack of success in the legislatures of 30 of the
31 states in which it has been introduced. Only,
Georgia has adopted the 18 year voting age, and
it is now a recognized fact that the 18-year-olds
in Georgia received the suffrage privilege as
political payment for the election of Gov. Ar-
nall. It was the conspicuous campaigning of the
18-21 year old group that was chiefly responsi-
ble for Arnall's success over the incumbent,
Eugene Talmadge.
Before advancing some of the arguments
against extending suffrage to 18-to-21-year-old
boys and girls, it would be profitable to note
the instances in which those under 21 have been
given the vote. Of 20 major European natiogs
three, the U.S.S.R., Germany and Italy, allow
youths to vote before reaching the age of 21.
Idealism, the boast of youth, has .had disastrous
effects on the political philosophy of modern
Germany and Italy. In the case of the Soviet
Union, on the other hand, can we truthfully
regard voting in a one-party nation as a demo-
cratic privilege? The eagerness and idealism of
young people make them "quick to grasp at
panaceas," Emanuel Celler, Representative to
Congress from New York City, said in advising
against lowering the suffrage age. It, is this
eagerness to grasp at panaceas that gained so
many loyal young Nazis for Hitler and Fascists
for Mussolini.
It has been wisely pointed out by Rep.
Celler that the years 18 to 21 are "three
formative, impressionistic, highly absortive
years" which' "make a great difference" in
judging political and economic issues. Not
only Rep. Celler, but such authorities as Dr.
Arthur Graham Glasgow, the N.Y.C. Bar As-
sociation, the Governor of Virginia, Colgate
W. Darden, Jr. and Prof. Carl Garrison have
characterized the 18-21 year old group as
too "immature" to make wise political deci-
. -Arthur J. Kraft
