Observatory Needs
THE IMPORTANT WORK done at the Univer-
sity Observatory suffered for two years owing
to a lack of manpower. Now, several months
after the signing of the peace, professors in the
AstronomyDepartment have returned from vital
war work to continue their observing program.
This program is again being interrupted, how-
ever, by recently completed plans for a dormi-
tory to be built next to Mosher-Jordan Hall and
extending to within approximately 20 feet of
the Observatory. The proximity of the building
will cut off part of the sky to the south, and its
smoke will absorb the blue and violet light rays
used for photographing the stars.
For years, smoke from the University Power
Plant has affected such photographs. It is time
that the Observatory be moved to a location
away from buildings, where observations may
be made without disturbances from external
An appropriation of $500,000 made in 1929
for this purpose was withdrawn because of
the depression, but now there is no reason for
ignoring complaints and petitions of the
Astronomy Department. We hope that Uni-
versity officials will remember, when they are
planning campus improvements, the inexcus-
able conditions under which our astronomers
must work.

Red Herring
0NE of the Senate's old pots is calling the
kettle black. We refer, of course, to Sen-
ator Robert "Reactionary" Taft's condemnation
of some of President Truman's legislative pro-
gram as "Communist".and "left-wing".
If moves to settle the present labor-manage-
ment disunity, to institute a national health
program, to insure jobs for all, to provide ad-
equate and satisfactory housing throughout the
nation, to guarantee fair employment practices
-if these programs are considered "Communist",
then it seems that the nation is now greatly
Communistic. Mr. Taft's comments are rash.
They are extreme examples of the "glittering

generalities" which good criticism avoids.
Mr. Taft offers no constructive suggestions on
the topics the President enumerated as demand-
ing action. In this he is typical of too many of
his fellow legislators. Congress apparently does
not conscientiously appreciate its responsibility
on these matters as does Mr. Truman.
The President has not insisted that his pro-
grams be adopted. He has offered Congress the
alternative of drawing up suitable legislation of
its own-an alternative which is really its proper
job. But if the Congress continues reluctant to
fulfill its prerogatives in legislative matters, it
forces the Presidentato take the leadd
Mr. Truman has called this the year for de-
cisions. Recent events indicate that Mr. Truman
is right, and that his proposals provide bases for

Driving Regulations
To the Editor:
IT IS HIGH TIME that the University Auto-,
mobile Regulations were modified to deal.
with the situation as it exists today. No one
will argue that there is not a certain wisdom in
imposing some such regulations upon freshmen
who have just entered the university from high
school. A lot of these younger people might
conceivably get themselves into trouble if they
could do as they wish with their cars. However,
when it comes to treating some 2,000 veterans,
many of whom were considered old enough and
intelligent enough to serve four or five years in
combat .overseas, in the same manner as though
they were fresh from high school, I submit that
it approaches absurdity.
One way in which this modification could be
carried out is by reducing the age limit from
26 years to 23 years. I further submit that
such a reduction would be welcome not only
to many veterans in the university but also
to other students of this age who have cars
and could use them to good advantage.
--John K. Macbeth
Jewish Irmig ation
To the Editor:
()NE of the main problems which faces the
world today is the Jewish problem of the
European countries and Palestine. Past events
have shown us that this country cannot take a
stand of isolation in such far-reaching problems.
Now we have become solidly entangled in this
problem as a result of an Arabian suggestion
that European Jews be transported to the United
States instead of the "Promised Land," Palestine.
Admittedly a delicate point, it seems to this
person that a definite stand should be takeu
to prevent such a migration. After years of
dodging such an issue, the time has come when
the ports of entry should be clsed and more
strict rulings be applied to the immigrants.
Full blame' cannot be placed on the Arabs for
such a suggestion, since many American and
British individuals have advocated the trans-
portation of the Jews to Palestine, which is in
truth a part of Arabia. Nevertheless it is im-
possible for the writer to agree to such a sug-
Internal conditions in living, unemployment,
and racial strife within the States at present
are uncontrolled and the entrance of these Jews
would only serve to further complicate matters.
CUrren t Movies
. at the Michigan
Ginger Rogers, Lana Turner, Walter Pidgeon
and Van Johnson in "Weekend at the Wal-
dorf," an MGM production, directed by Robert
Z. Leonard.
The classic Thalberg production of 1932,
"Grand Hotel," has been remade as "Weekend
at the Waldorf." Once again we look into the
drama surging under the surface of bustling life
in a lavish metropolitan hotel.
The fourteen-year interval since the first ver-
sion has transformed the four major charac-
ters: Garbo's fading ballerina has become a chic
movie queen; Walter Pidgeon is a dashing jour-
nalist merely posing as the John Barrymore
jewel thief; no one less than Van Johnson plays
a face-lifted version of the Lionel Barrymore,
character. Lana Turner, as the mercenary Joan
Crawford stenographer, apparently felt the eye
of the Johnston Office on her, because she is
never the satisfyingly nasty creature Miss Craw-
ford was. She's just a sweet young thing with
an intense aversion to Tenth Avenue.
The quartet assembled for this time around
is uniformly photogenic, and competent, too,
on a lesser level than their predecessors were.
Altogether, it is slick, light entertainment
exuding an air of Ladies Home Companion
luxury that will lift the average, popcorn-
munching movie fan clear out of the Mich-
igan balcony

* * . at the State
Gary Cooper and Loretta Young in "Along
Came Jones," with William Demarest; an In-
ternational production.
It's just as well "Along Came Jones" did its
coming along early in the new year, because
you can go on from here secure in the knowledge
that there can't possibly be anything worse in
the next twelve months. It is a Western, but it
doesn't generate the innocent fun this genre
usually does when properly produced. With no
contextural reason for doing so, it clearly imag-
ines itself to be "Destry Rides Again". It
attempts to satirize itself in the same way, but
it doesn't achieve the same brilliant results.
The fault lies to a great extent in the simple
fact that Gary Cooper just isn't James Stew-
art. By the same token, wan Loretta Young
isn't the ideal substitute for Marlene Dietrich.
But the main drawback is Nunnally Johnson's
dismal script, the humor of which seems to
have been conceived on a level only slightly
higher than that of The Gargoyle.

Moscow conference, and aiin2 Secretary
Byrnes, through their tears, of having lost his
shirt in the Russian capital, that it may be a
surprise to learn that the British think e came
out of the meeting rather too well. The British
press has been complaining that America re-
ceived more at Msc..h:idi Bi a ;ad
now the Manchester Gtardian, in an almost vio-
lent editorial, accuses Secretary Byrnes of having
cooked up a Japanese settlement which only
"appears to share" our control of Japan with the
Allies, while actually keeping it lirmly in our
own hands. The Guardian talks of Byrnes
smartness as a lawyer in almost exactly the
admiring and awe-stricken ternis (isn't it won-
derful?) in which the Chicago Tribune talks of
Molotov's smartness as a trader against us.
In the heat of our rivalry with Russia, we
sometimes forget about our rivalry with Brit-
ain, but it always comes back; and a small but
definite ripple has arisen in American-British
relations, following the Moso c"nWerence.
The British know that an itricate settlement
of Russian-American (onilis took paice at
Moscow; we recognized R ian rights in the
Baikans; the Russians reconied cur domi-
nance in Japanese matters. But now the con-
ference is over, and the British ask: Where do

WELL, the conference did not actually tell the
British to go ahead anywhere, and that is
not the conference's fault. How could it? Brit-
ain's scattered interests are, largely, ancient
colonial interests; and almost every step taken
by the Moscow meeting struck a blow at these,
and without any particular malice.
The British fretted, for example, over the
clause assurirf; Korea of independence in five
years; they were fearful that this clause might
stir the Burmese into asking for a commutation
of their own term to five years. Every move
toward setting up a free and strong China is, in
effect, a blow at Britain's interests; not because
of any anti-British motive, but because of the
nature of her interests.
And so the British come out of the meeting
with a certain thin feeling; and, in their alarm,
they resort to almost (quaintly old-fashioned
They try crude moves against the Jews, to
win the support of the Arab world; and they
descend upon Siam witi a demand for special
rights and for wdr remcrations of up to 1,500,-
000 tons of rice, with which they hepe to feed
the starving in their own Burma and India,
thus easing their own cojonal problem. We,
who are not dislocated by having colonial in-
terests, try to get the Sare reparations
scaled down; we emerge as the friends of Siam,
and, again, there is here no uestion f mlice,
lint of opposing views base on the incscam
able conditions of our time.
The New York Herald Tribune, in an editorial
sensitively feeling out the new position, murmurs
meaningfully that British and American inter-
ests in Asia are not identical, and that it is not
really necessary for us to act in unison with
Britain in the Far East. Our interests lie i
profitable trade, which requires a free and de-
veloping Asia; Brita in's interests lie (or she
thinks they do) in subjugation and colonial
The Herald Tribune senses so thin of the
great process whic was at w - at Moscow;
one which means up for sone pepes who were -
down, and perhaps down for soni nations
which were up, a high and entgralling story of
the remaking of a word, in some rays tragic,
yet grand too. The soy is comoletely missed
by our mere primitive commentators on Mos-
cow, who are so busy bemoaning what didn't
happen, that they fail to see what did.
