Negro Veteran
THE PROBLEM of post-war readjustments has
begun. The war is by no means over, but
already more than 1,000 returning veterans have
enrolled in Michigan's colleges and secondary
schools-more than 320 in this University.
To aid in their readjustment to civilian life
the G. I. Bill of Rights has been enacted and
veteran counselling services established.
Among these veterans is one who returned
to Ann Arbor this week. We'll call him Edward
Smith had completed two years of college
work when his education was interrupted by
service in the army. He was in the army
for two years and has just been discharged.
He's looking for a job prior to enrolling in the
University, and has registered with the veteran
counselling service and yesterday went to the
United States Employment agency.
He filled out the application with the infor-
mation requested-including the fact that he
is a Negro.
At the employment agency, he was asked,
"Can you cook? We placed another Negro
student as a cook and he made $250 a month."
Smith hadn't been trained to cook.
The counsellor searched for another sug-
gestion,-but cooking was the only possibility.
At length he said, "Well, to be frank with you,
none of the plants in Ann Arbor hire negroes."
Smith still doesn't have a job. There's not
much he can do about it. There isn't very
much the employment service can do about it.
But something can be done about it.
Fair Employment Practices can and should
be set up and made effective.. Unions can and
should demand the elimination of racial dis-
crimination in personnel policy.
In Ann Arbor the Veteran's Organization
which constitutes a powerful pressure group,
can and must exert its pressure to insure
veterans, irrespective of race or religion, their
basic rights as Americans.

Soa Evils Do Exist
IN OUR only previous contact through the
editorial page of The Daily I was somehow
encouraged by Miss Ryan's sober and logical
letter on peactime conscription.
I do take issue with her on the substance
of yesterday's letter criticizing what apparently
-seems to her a leftist policy. The Daily has no
policy. Some students are radical, some reac-
tionary; most of us are somewhere between these
extremes in our social, political and economic
philosophies. When Miss Ryan criticizes a pol-
icy, she criticizes nothing. What appears on the
editorial page of this newspaper reflects only
the opinion of the individual writer.
Bernard Rosenberg, the Daily columnist, is
pretty generally misunderstood. He has repeat-
edly denied sympathy to the communist ideology
or any of its derivative by-products-(viz: a
column published November 23, in which he pan-
ned leftist dogma; another November 28, in
which he criticized Russia.) That he is a
liberal is indisputable but he does not echo, as
she suggests, the Moscow line.
I am rather amazed at the shallowness of the
thought on which Miss Ryan bases her final
statements-". . . let's start printing all the

material from the more informed columnists
rather than boring your readers with idle dis-
sertations on the evils of our social structure."
What kind of. responsible citizen is Miss
]Ryan that s~he considers the evils of our social
structure too boring to talk about? We have
not progressed quite as far in the social sphere
as she thinks we have. Economists, through
research, estimate that between fifty and
. m a

Editor's Note-Drew Pearson's column today
takes the form of a letter to his daughter,
Miss Ellen Pearson, at Bernardsville, N. J.,
about diplomats, wars and the problem of
improving her school marks in current events,
(The Pearsons are Quakers and use the
"thee" form of address within the family in-
stead of "you").
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8-My dear daughter:
Well, the fall report came and it was not
as bad as thee anticipated. Of course, I would
have felt happier if thee had had a better mark
in current events. I suppose I am ambitious
to have the daughter of an elleged commentator
lead the class when it comes to knowing what
is going on in the world.
I wonder if thy teacher has been telling the
class about the very important shake-up which
is now taking place among the men who run
our foreign affairs-the State Department. I
wonder also if she is teaching the class about
what is happening in Italy and Belgium and
Greece, where the British are trying to tell the
peoples of those countries what kind of gov-
ernments they should have.
We have just re-elected President Roosevelt
for an epoch-making number of years-largely,
I think, because a great many people felt he
could build permanent peace. So he has a
great obligation to fulfill, and he has now
put some new men in the State Department
to conduct our foreign relations. These men,
perhaps even more than President Roosevelt,
are going to shape the future peace of the
Three of a Kindnd...
I was wondering the other evening what would
happen if the son of John L. Lewis were appoint-
ed Assistant Secretary of State. Young John
went to a fine private school in Virginia and
later to Princeton. He has an excellent edu-
cational background and stood at the top of
his class. But I know what a hue and cry
would go up from the Senate and the country if
he were to be given a key job in running our
foreign relations.
I wondered also what would happen if, in addi-
tion to young John L. Lewis, Jr., the son of
Phil Murray, head of the CIO, plus son of Matt
Woll, vice president of the AFL, were appointed
to high positions in the State Department.
There would be more yelling in the Senate
than at a hockey game at Miss Gill's School-
and rightly so.
Yet President Rooseelvt has just appointed
the grandson of John D. Rockefeller, Sr.,
plus the son of a J. P. Morgan partner, plus
a relative of J. P. Morgan, to run that branch
of the Government upon which depends
whether or not we will have to fight another
If old John D. Rockefeller, Sr., were alive to-!
day, I would trust him more than his grand-
children to run our foreign affairs. He was
tough, shrewd, and would never have let any
foreign diplomats take away our shirt.
Or I would even trust John L. Lewis more than
his son to handle our international negotia-
tions. Lewis is a real negotiator. He has built
up his union with the same hard-boiled, selfish
tactics of John D. Rockefeller. He gets what he
But actually, I don't believe that we have to
call upon predatory old birds like the elderj
Rockefeller or Lewis, or their inexperienced chil-
dren, to run our foreign affairs. And especially
I don't think that, out of 130,000,000 people, it
is wise to pick two offsprings of the House of
Morgan and one offspring of the House of Rocke-
feller to be Secretary of State, Undersecretary
and Assistant Secretary-any more than it would
be wise to put three sons of labor leaders in the
State Department.
Joe Grew's Background . ,.
Take, for instance, the new Undersecretary
Joseph C. Grew. I knew him quite well when he
was Undersecretary of State under Frank B.
Kellogg. Mr. Grew is blessed with infinite
charm, lovely children and a great deal of
money from his relatives, the J. P. Morgans.
His daughters have married diplomats, one of
them a very able diplomat who was also a Mor-
gan relative. It's like the principle followed by
John L. Lewis-a closed shop.

The chief thing I remember about Joe Grew,
however, is that he followed the old school of
American diplomacy which believed in being
the tail on the British kite. Whatever the Brit-
ish Foreign Office did, Grew and those trained
with him did likewise. They took the stand
that British diplomats knew more than we, that
the British fleet was bigger, that British invest-
ments were more widespread. Therefore, we
had to follow the British.
But today that isn't the case. Our fleet is
the biggest in the world. Our investments
even before the war were as far-flung as those
of the British. Our current indirect invest-
ments through Lend-Lease are beyond imagi-
nation. Likewise our diplomacy should be
bold and strong and vigorous-not selfish ex-
cept for one thing.
That one thing is that, in return for our
Lend-Lease, in return for sending our boys
abroad, in return for the ships we have given
the British, we want one dividend-an orderly
world after this war.
Unfortunately, we are not making much pro-
gress toward getting it. And we are not going

to get it with British troops now occupying
Ethiopia, where the germs of this war were
planted by Mussolini; or with British tanks
lined up around the Belgian House of Par-
liament while a vote is taken; or with the
British Ambassador telling the Italians that
Count Sforza cannot serve in their Cabinet be-
cause he is against the King.
Those actions are not in accord with the
principles of the Atlantic Charter, and they
are not what we entered the war for. But I
wonder whether the new men in the State
Department, some like Mr. Grew, trained to
follow British diplomacy, others like Ed. Stei-
tinius, trained to speed Lend-Lease to the
British, will be able to change their tactics
and do some hard-fisted bartering for the
only thing in which we are interested-per-
manent peace.
This is rather a large mouthful, and I didn't
mean to get so steamed up. But anyway, study
hard on current events. Love, Daddy.

'Tough' Policy
NEW YORK, Dec. 8-We are being "tough"
with Britain, and Britain is being "tough"
with Italy, Greece and Belgium. We told the
British off at the Chicago Air Conference, when
we insisted on our right to grow mighty on the
commercial airways of the world, almost without
let or hindrance. The British have told Count
Sforza off in Italy. and they are supporting un-
popular governments in Belgium and in Greece;
it is understood that they intend to acquire
bases in both countries.
Is there any connection between our attitude
toward Britain, and Britain's attitude toward
Italy, Belgium and Greece? There might well
be. It would not be the first case in which he
who gets slapped, turns around and slaps some-
one else.
Our attitude at the air conference must, to a
certain extent, have made the British feel shaky
about their futures. We refused to agree to an
international organization with real power to
control commercial air traffic. The air confer-
ence was a peculiar conference, in that it was an
international meeting, summoned, by us, to
agree on the principle of no international control
We have refused to give the British any
fixed quota of the world's air traffic. The air
conference is now over. Certain basic princi-
ples have been accepted, such as the right to
fly civil aircraft over foreign territory, to land
in case of need, etc.; progress has been made
in setting up technical and safety standards.
But an uncontrolled scramble for air routes
will now begin. That is the way we want it.
It.is not the way the British want it. For in
this game we have the aces, the heavy planes,
the facilities for building more heavy planes,
and friendly contacts in Latin America. One
can hardly blame the British for experienc-
ing a shivver or two about their futures, and
for wanting a fixed quota of the air trade.
Britain has always needed the carrying trade,
in order to secure enough foreign exchange
with which to buy food.
And so, bewildered and shaken by Chicago,
{ Britain reaches out for the bases she needs, and
supports with arms the governments she be-
lieves will be friendly to her, in Italy, Greece
and Belgium.
(F BRITAIN'S support of Pierlot in Belgium
and of Papandreous in Greece, is discredit-
able, it is not so very different, in kind, from our
own action of last week in concluding an avia-
tion treaty with France in Spain. All these
stories are alike, in that use is being mrade of
undemocratic regimes, in order to secure com-
mercial and other advantages.
The way to halt these incidents is not to
sign new Years resolutions faithfully promising
to be good, but to find some way to steer around
the underlying British-American economic rival-
ry, which shows up in these particular forms.
It is riot by scolding Britain that we will make
her behave, for scolding her only increases her
sense of isolation, throws her more desperately
on her own resources, and makes it seem even
more necessary for her to use whatever powers
she has to fend for herself.

Mr. Stettinius' admirable statement of Tues-
day was a fine theoretical contribution to the
problem. He completely dissociated the United
States from Britain's opposition to letting Count
Sforza enter the Italian government. He made
it clear, without naming them, that Belgium and
Greece are even more entitled to the right to
choose their own governing officials. But the
imperative reaction to this statement is that a
major meeting between Britain and the United
States is necessary.
It is only from her closeness to us that Britain
can draw the strength she needs to let her cease
her dependence on Pierlot and Papandreou.
While it is true that one cannot live by bread
alone, it is also true that one cannot live by
principles alone. Mr. Stettinius has contrib-
uted the principles. But only a major economic
settlement between the United States and
Britain can supply the bread. We are treat-
ing the symptoms. We must plot out, on
paper, the means whereby our two countries
can avoid the disaster of unchecked rivalry,
and thus cure the disease.
