Bond Dive
FROM NOV. 20 through Dec. 16 the people of
the United States will once again be asked
to send eight million dollars toward the Sixth
War Loan Drive.
In order to bring about victory as soon as
possible, more guns, ammunition, planes, tanks,
and food supplies will be needed to supply our
fighting men.
That equipment cannot be supplied and ship-
ped overseas unless everyone contributes as
much as possible toward the Sixth War Loan
Washtenaw County's over-all goal is $8,164,-
000. Ann Arbor again will carry the brunt of
the campaign with a total quota of $5,541,000,
of which $1,041,000 is expected in E Bonds;
$1,275,000 in individual purchases of bonds
other than series E, and $3,225,000 in corpora-
tion bonds.
For the Sixth War Loan Drive, the University
will again have a quota, the amount of which has
not been decided yet. The Union and League
are now planning an extensive campaign, which
can only succeed if every student, faculty mem-
ber, serviceman and University employee coop-

(Lt. Col. Robert S. Allen now on active service
with the Army.)
WASHINGTON, NOV. 11-On one of the last
days of the campaign, Vice President Wal-
lace walketi several miles through the streets of
politically important Harlem with Negro Con-
gressional candidate Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.
Thousands of Negroes crowded the line of
march, looked down from windows, cheered
Wallace, who has fought their battles.
Wallace continued to walk through the black-
lined streets for fifty city blocks. Remarked
Powell: "This walk, Mr. Vice President, is pick-
ing up 50,000 votes for Roosevelt."
"If I thought that was true," countered Wal-
lace, "I'd walk all the way to the Canadian
What Reward for Wallace.. .
After Wallace's speech in Madison Square
Garden, where he stood alongside Senator Tru.4
man and urged Truman's election, Wallace got
the following telegram from Roosevelt:
"If your prediction that 1'l win by 100
electoral votes comes true, then I'll make
my prediction of 60,000,000 jobs come true,
and don't forget that I'll have one important
job for you."
This raises one question which intrigues a
lot of people, including some very close to
the White House-what reward will the Presi-
dent give to the Vice President, who was defi-
nitely squeezed out at Chicago on FDR's own
command, but who came through without rancor
and, in a 30,000-mile barnstorming trip, some-
times making twenty brief speeches a day,
pulled votes for the man who didn't want him.
Wallace could have back his old job as
Secretary of Agriculture in a minute, if he
wanted it. But he has indicated to friends that
he doesn't want it. Also, friends say he is not
going to be satisfied with being Ambassador
to China or with some other "Siberian" assign-
The President, on the other hand, is pro-
foundly grateful and wants to give Wallace real
recognition. If Cordell Hull should resign as
Secretary of State, Henry, now recognized as a
first-hand specialist on China, Russia and Latin
America, would have first call on the job.
'New York Rebuilt' .. .
Pilots of the Air Transport Command assign-
ed to fly important Nazi prisoners from Europe
to the U. S. A. report that the attitude of the
prisoners varies from silent and resentful to
openly glad and relieved. Invariably, Ameri-
can Army food is a constant source of aston-
ishment-even to high Nazi officers.
One thing that usually happens as they fly
over New York is a remark from the prisoners:
"Remarkably good engineers you have in this
The pilots agree, remark that New York is a
miracle city. Next word from the Germans is:
"It 'is amazing how they could rebuild the city
so quickly."
Were Kicked Out but Helped ...
When you call the roll of those who helped
re-elect Roosevelt, you can't escape one out
standing conclusion: Men he kicked out or
around contributed a lion's share to his victory.
The professional politicians, with the excep-
tion of Mayor Ed Kelly of Chicago, didn't help
too much. Likable, energetic Bob Hannegan of
Missouri was no great beacon tower. Actually
the President himself, as usual, was his own
best campaigner. He carried the chief load.
But second to him, here is a roll call of the
ex's and kick-arounds who really went down the
line for the man who kicked them:
Leon Henderson-Kicked out as OPA admini-
strator, but organized the Independent Roose-
velt Committee, raise dthousands of dollars.
Donald Nelson-Kicled out as War Produc-
tion Board chairman, but made an effective ra-
dio speech, worked hard backstage for FDR.'
Secretary of the Interior Ickes-Those close-
up to the Cabinet know how many times FDR
has given the cold shoulder to various Ickes
projects; has sided with palace favorite Harry

Hopkins in the bitter Hopkins-Ickes rivalry.
Yet Ickes was the President's main Cabinet
speech-maker, hurled pointed barbs which the
White House couldn't but definitely wanted
Bob Nathan-Eased out of the War Produc-
tion Board because General Somervell and the
Brass Hats didn't like him. He worked with
Henderson on the Independent Committee for
Roosevelt, raised thousands of dollars.
Sidney Iillnan-Fired from the Office of
Production Management without warning by
FDR. He registered more voters-and got them
out on Election Day-than any other man in the
U. S. A. A lot of people, including Hannegan,
looked upon Hillman with mixed feelings, but
without Hillman's stirring up of the vote, FDR
might not have remained in the White House.
Vice President Wallace-Ousted for renomi-
nation, but went down the line as noted above.
One of those who worked hard for Roosevelt
behind the scenes remarked after it was all

What Roosevelt Owes Us...
"I've gone down the line in 1936, in 1940 and
in 1944. This time I want to be paid off. And I
want just one thing," he continued. "I want
Roosevelt to begin now to build up some real
men capable of taking over his mantle. He
owes that to us by this time.
"Also, I want to see a strong Liberal-Demo-
cratic-Republican organization built up which
can really take over the job of winning the
peace. Roosevelt owes us that too. That's the
only pay I want, but I think I and a lot of
others are entitled to it."

Chicago Conference
NEW YORK, NOV. 10-We Americans are
fond of the myth that Uncle Sam is an old
softie, who is always giving his pants and shirt
away to foreign countries.
It is a soft impeachment, which we con-
stantly level against ourselves and dimple at,
and enjoy thoroughly. I wonder whether it
is quite true.
America's role at the International Civil Avia-
tion Conference at Chicago seems realistic, al-
most, in fact hard-boiled.
The big question is whether to apportion
commercial air traffic among the several na-
tions of the world, by quotas, or whether to have
open competition.
We are against quotas. We want all the busi-
ness we can get.
I don't say this is wicked. I merely cite it for
the record. Th British aren't wicked, either, in
asking for protected quotas of the world's air
trade. The carrying trade is one of the means
traditionally used by Britain to secure sufficient
foreign balances to pay for necessary imports.
We find ourselves in opposition to another
ally, too, the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union
has belatedly refused to attend the Chicago
conference, on the ground that Spain, Portu-
gal and Switzerland, three countries with anti-
Soviet regimes, were invited.
Why did we invite them?
The plain truth is that Spanish, Portugese,
and Swiss airports are necessary to round-the-
world commercial air operation, while it so hap-
pens that it is possible to have a pretty good
global air service without touching upon Rus-
sian territory at any point.
We needed Russian help to set up a world
stabilization fund, and so last July's monetary
conference at Bretton Woods was made a
United Nations affair.
Russia was invited, and the neutrals, includ-
ing Spain, Portugal and Sweden, were not.
We do not happen to need Russian help
in setting up global air service. But we do
need some of the neutrals. We have invited
them, and we have let nature take its course,
so far as the Soviet reaction is concerned.
I recite the facts only to help break the
fatuous myth that American statesmen are in
some ways different from all other statesmen,
in that they like to give things away.
That has become one of the demagogic
standbys in American politics; and while one
hates to trample on an 'old lengend, it doesn't
seem to fit into the Chicago story at all.
(Copyright, 1944, New York Post Syndicate)
RUSSIA has refused the request of Switzerland
to resume diplomatic relations. This refusal,
and the memorandum in which reasons for it
are given, come with very bad grace at a time
when every peace-loving nation, regardless of
size or power, should be seeking friendlier rela-
tions with other countries.
This is not a time for judging strained feelings
between Switzerland and Russia in the pre-war

years. This is not a time to recall the unfortu-
nate incident that took place in Geneva in 1923
-the assassination of the Russian diplomatist
Vorovsky, head of the Soviet delegation to the
Far East peace conference, by the Swiss Conradi,'
and the failure of Switzerland to settle the affair
to the satisfaction of the Soviet Union. A nation
of Russia's present power and importance can
afford to have in such matters a shorter memory
and a broader sense of responsibility.
Shooting Russia out of season is a favorite
and dangerous sport of ' some people in this
country. Their specialty is constant and intem-
perate criticism of an ally with whom this nation
must work in war and in peace. But serious and
concerned criticism of Russia comes fairly from
those who have argued over a period of years
for understanding of her. It is those who be-
lieve the Soviet Union and the United States
must work together in the peace who are most
disturbed by such events as this present show
Df muscle against small democratic Switzerland.

Victory Gardens. "Victory garden-
ers" at the Botanical Garden are
hereby reminded that one of the
conditions of the use of these garden
plots is that rubbish must not be left
on the land. At the end of the sea-
son, each gardener should clear his
plot. Corn stalks, stubble and dead
plants of all kinds should be pulled
up and, after the earth has been
knocked from their roots, piled in the
middle of the plot, so that they may
be readily picked up by the garden
truck and burned. Stakes should
alsobe pulled from the ground and
taken away if the owner wishes to
use them again) or piled separately
from the rubbish. There need be no
hurry in clearing those parts of the
gardens that are still productive.
Gardeners who do not clear up
their plots this fall, as well as those

-Aggie Miller
No Foresight
ONE CANNOT help raising an eyebrow in
wonderment at those people who voted "No"
on Michigan Proposal No. 3 to increase the re-
muneration of state legislators from $3 to $5
per -day "because of the recent graft scandals
in the legislature.,"
Most of these shortsighted individuals who
helped defeat this urgently needed reform
probably do not realize it, but by turning
down the proposal they merely perpetuated
conditions favorable to the graft they were
supposedly trying to prevent.
It requires no great powers of deduction to
discover the reason behind the extreme amount
of corruption to be found in Michigan's govern-
ment. Three dollars a day is not exactly a for-
tune in these times when laborers strike for
$1.50 an hour. True, 'the legislature is in ses-
sion only a short time during the two-year term,
and the lawmakers can conduct their normal
businesses the rest of the period.' But it is
equally true that these men have been entrusted
with responsibility which means giving up their
normal pursuits temporarily. They are sup-
posed to act with the interest of the people at
heart--people who pay them a token wage of $3
per day.
Back in the 1800's when the present laws were
passed, $3 a day was a substantial sum. But
times have changed, and the laws have not. So,
as a result, some of the less scrupulous indi-
viduals turn to accepting graft in an attempt
to obtain something for their time and trouble.
