Fiffty-Fifth Year
The Michigan Daily is entering its fifty-fifth
year of publication today and at the same
time is beginning its ninth senester of publica-
tion during the war. All the wartime responsi-
bilities which are ours, we, as the senior editors,
understand and will gravely undertake to meet.
The Daily has a long and illustrious history
of service established by students for the Univer-
sity community. We take this opportunity to
assure you that the high standards set up in the
past will be maintained by the staff for you,
the students of today.
We feel it our duty to serve the University
community in a double capacity: first, to give
the students and members of the faculty as
complete and comprehensive coverage of the
University and campus events as possible, and
second, to present an accurate, honest and un-
biasted picture of our nation and our world at
war. These things are not easy to do, but we
set them up as goals worthy of our best ef-
We will welcome expressions of opinion from
students and faculty at any time in the hope
that these thoughts will help us give a fairer
representation of current views on our campus.
To these things we pledge ourselves and also
ask your sincere interest in order to serve the
University in the best way possible as a stu-
dent newspaper functioning in war time.

Bicycle Rule
Everyone on campus during the summer and
previous semesters must certainly be aware
of the hundreds of bicycles tearing along
the diagonals and other paths on campus. Any-
one with eyes can see the destruction that bicy-
cles have wrought on the lawns when impatient
riders steer them around pedestrian traffic.
Bicycles are a constant threat to all who walk
on the campus and the damage done to the
grass, not only mars the face of the campus,
but results in costly repair work.
There exists a rule forbidding bicycle riding
across campus but few know about it and no one
enforces it. The rule is necessary but it must
be complemented by more practical provisions
for those, who living far from campus, ride
bicycles to and from class.
For these people, I think that the Uniiver-
sity ought to construct at all four corners of
the campus bicycles racks to accomodate at

least 30 bicycles each. Students riding to
campus from far away residences will be able
to park their bicycles at one of the four racks
and walk through the diagonal to classes. This
will eliminate the danger of injury to pedestrians
from bicycles and will further curb the costly
damage done to the campus lawns.
-Arthur Kraft

Twelve years have' passed since 1932, during
the first four years of which the basic economic
philosophy of the American people had to be
abandoned, and government regulation sub-
stituted if we were truly to have free enterprise;
12 years during which America followed late in
the path of the other democratic natigns in
inaugurating a policy of social security and
recognizing the right to collective bargaining.
By 1936 these major reforms had been enacted
in law. America had achieved its economic
metamorphosis, and in recognition of the work
of the first Roosevelt administration, re-elected
it by the greatest electoral majority received by,
any caididate since 1820. But as this era of good
feeling gave way to the era of ill will, so dissen-
sion and bickering became part and parcel of
the succeeding two terms of the Roosevelt Ad-
ministration. -
New Deal is Old
The New Deal had grown old; old not in
the sense that, breaking all precedent, it had
served three terms in office under the same
leader, but old in the sense that its days of
reform were ended, that there was constant
bickering over spheres of authority among the
host of administration-created agencies; old
in that ,since the Supreme Court reorganiza-
tion fight of 1937 the executive was having
greater and greater difficulty in getting along
with his party supporters in Congress, until in
1944 his workC had been denounced on the
floor of the Senate by the Democratic leader
in that House.
When in July of this year the Democratic
party was called on to choose its Presidential
candidate, it was forced to turn again to Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt, the only leader it has found,
despite its having been in power for the last
12 years.
Both major campaigns have been marred by
mud-slinging. But ..in comparing these cam-
paigns, it appears that Dewey's has been char-
acterized by an attempt at straightforward
analysis and presentation of the issues before
the people.. Speech by speech he dealt with
labor, post-war reconstruction, foreign 'policy.
In each case he made his position clear. In
contrast the Democrats have resorted to Sher-
woodian humor, smug dismissal but no dis-
proof of Republican charges, a revival of 1932
campaign issues, and a large helping of vague
generalities presented in the manner of an agi-
tated Cheshire cat,, vainly trying to regain its
famous purr and smile.
Democrats Say
Thus far in the campaign we have been led
to believe: That only the Democrats, by using an
exclusively Democratic military strategy, have
waged a successful war in Europe, and that if
given four more years time, will do the same in
the West Pacific, to the everlasting glory of the
Democratic party. That in only eight years,
with the advent of the war bom in 1940, the
Democrats have rescued us from economic chaos.
That if re-elected, the Democrats will speedily
try to relieve racial discrimination in the armed
forces, although four years of intense military
consciousness have so far produced little action
in that line. That, in answer to Dewey's de-
tailed promise of post-war employment, Roose-
velt has given us placid but vague assurance that
if he is re-elected, there will immediately be
provided 60 million brand new jobs, notwith-
standing that between 1932 and 1940 a Demo-
cratic administration, complete with WPA,
PWA, and CC, had provided only 10 million
jobs. (When he promised this job bonanza last
Saturday night, Roosevelt saw no need to men-
tion that in 1940 10 million persons were still
Old Style Campaign
Roosevelt, who in July refused to campaign in
a usual sense, has indeed reverted to his most
common style of amused amazement at any
questioning of his infallibility. His formula still
is to dismiss a vital issue with a joke (it has
worked for him before, so why not again?) His
only hopes of re-election are that he is now
in office and that he is a war-time president.
Dewey has been criticized for lack of "na-
tional experience"-criicized perhaps because
New York State is his job, and he has spent
most of his time and interest in doing that

state job well. Before he became president,
Roosevelt had the same job.
The New Deal has outgrown its usefulness.
An administration which the New York Times
admits needs a thorough housecleaning can-
not cope with the manifold problems of post-
war reconstruction. One man diplomacy ad-
ministered 'with the weapon of executive
agreement can make no peace suitable to the
American people, much less to an unconsulted
-Monroe Fink

The current presidential race has so many
sidelights that it is difficult for the voter to
come to an honest and wise decision. Over and
above the expected personality slurs and "politi-
cal generalities," there are a few fundamental
points that the intelligent citizen can grasp and
evaluate to his own satisfaction.
Candidate Dewey struck the central note of
his policy Tuesday night when he asked that
we . . "Direct all government policies toward
the goal of full employment through full pro-
duction at a high level of wages with an incen-
tive for the business man to succeed."
Utopia How?
For. this noble statement of a goal Governor
Dewey is to be commended but when we look for
the means by which he wants to attain his
utopia, we find no answer. The big question is
This same goal the Republican party stood
staunchly for in the roaring '20's and yet. we
lived to regret the methods used. By the
traditional GOP "green light method" which
attempts to give everybody just what they want,
we experienced economic convulsions which
practically ruined our economic structure. Dewey
advocates, and his party heartily supports him,
a free enterprise which would permit freedom
for anybody to do whatever he wished regard-
less of the best interests of the nation.
We have only to remember the activities of
former president Herbert ,Hoover when he was
Secretary of Commerce. Through his Trade
Associations, all industry was organized into
councils-a forerunner of the NRA which Dewey
so caustically denounced Tuesday night-which
set prices for all interests in a particular in-
Here were Mr. Dewey's "government cartels"
organized and fostered by his GOP predecessors
and which he now claims to disavow so loudly.
Here was his "fair treatment to all" in operation
that keptthe small businessman swamped under
by big business monopoly when the farmer,
whom he now culls as a lover, could not purchase
city goods because of the price.
'Green Light'
Yes, this was Republican "green light" free
enterprise that worked for the personal gain
of the few and to the eventual desperation of
the entire nation. '
Dewey knows as well as any thinking Ameri-
can that the classic economyof Adam Smith has
not worked in the past and will not work in the
future. He knows it must be modified an con-
trolled and gives lip service to this principle
first introduced on the national level in 1932.
Yet, is it conceivable that Dewey will be able
to follow this progressive line when the Re-
publican Party is riddled with Adam Smith
Dewey also had the unmitigated nerve to
shout that Roosevelt has read the GOP plat-
form and has said "me too." In reality it is
Mr. Dewey who has said "rne too" to all the
reforms that the New Deal has brought into
being in the last 12 years.
Dewey has repeatedly come forth with his
"me too" on every domestic reform that this
country has seen under the Roosevelt Adnini-
stration. He supports collective bargaining,
and social security, and all the rest. The Re-
publican party now yells "bravo" but our mem-
ories are not so short that we can't recall that
all these might have been instituted in the 12
Republican years following the first world war.
The reform movement in this country which
Dewey now praises was completely sidetracked
and retarded by the GOP presidents before
Back to Normalcy
Because it is not good politics and because
it arouses a distinct odium, the Republicans have
failed to drag out Harding's slogan of "Sack
to normalcy." But in effect that is just the
line the Republican candidate is using.
It was bold and imaginative leadership that
brought this nation out of the depths of Re-
publican chaos in 1932. Roosevelt gave a new
faith and a new spirit to the nation then. It
wasn't a question of how or when or why.
"We must do the job, we will do the job"
And now again within 12 years the nation
faces an even bigger and more important task.
And again bold and strong leadership will lead
the way to security and prosperity at home.
All through the campaign we have heard "yes,

that is a fine program but I can do it better."
But not once in all his utterances has Mr.
Dewey ever demonstrated how.
The issues are too grave and the future
security of the nation is too important to
trust America's future to an unproven and
uncertain leader!
