editorials published in The Michigan Daily
are written by members of The Daily staff
and represent the views of the writers only.
Daily Policy'
THE so-called "policies" of The Daily are often
subjects of campus discussion. They shouldn't
The Daily, as a newspaper, seeks to present the
news in an objective fashion and to represent
campus opinion on local, national and interna-
tional issues. Since there are almost as many
opinions on campus as there are students, we
feel that The Daily, itself, cannot take sides on
controversial issues and still call itself a student
Nevertheless, you will find that definite stands
will be taken on many important questions in
The Daily editorial columns. These editorials are
checked carefully for accuracy by the Editorial
Director and are printed as representing the
views of the writer. That is why in the masthead
above this column we print the note: "Editorials
published in The Michigan Daily are written by
members of The Daily staff and represent the
views of the writers only."
We have more than 100 students on The Daily
staff who are eligible to write editorials and who
are encouraged to do so. A definite attempt is
made to print editorials on both sides of contro-
versial questions. This is not always possible as
no staff member is asked to defend an argument
in which he does not believe.
This is where the entire student body comes
Anyone is welcome to write a Letter to the
Editor on any specific issue. We will be glad
to print them providing 1) they are in good
taste, 2) they are under the 400-word limit
and 3) they are signed.
On the news side, we attempt to give adequate
coverage to all campus events. We invite sug-
gestions for news stories and features, whether
they be for the general news, women's or sports
In short The Daily is your newspaper, and
we want to cooperate in every way possible to
make it a live-wire, useful publication.

Ike's Report
THE PROBLEM of our relations with Russia is
coming to a showdown in Germany.
General Eisenhower's report of unrest among
the German masses proves, in bluntest detail,
that we have not resolved our relations with the
Soviet Union. The report tells of attacks on
American troops by youths and German soldiers,
of murder and organized looting among dis-

placed persons and of a grave food and fuel situ-
Eisenhower points up the cause of these diffi-
culties in his statement that little progress has
been made toward setting up central administra-
tive machinery for Germany and that only a few
problems have been solved by the Allied Control
Council, for lack of unanimous agreement.
It is not news that we and the Russians have
been working against each other in Germany.
We have made use of Nazis in the occupation be-
cause anti-Fascists were considered Communists.
The Russians in turn have openly favored the
German Communist party, undermining the ef-
forts of those parties which we consider "demo-
The San Francisco ard London conferences

WASHINGTON-Navy Day was a thrill for
thousands here at home, but not for a mil-
lion others going to seed on Pacific islands or
twiddling their thumbs in Europe waiting for
transportation home.
Transportation has come to be the biggest bot-
tleneck of the whole discharge system. And what
burns me up is to see transportation squandered
by officers while they are powerless to get home.
Here are some illustrations:
11..A total of 650 German horses were
loaded on the SS Stephen Austin at Bremer-
haven for transportation back to Fort Riley
Kans., the army's cavalry school. Many of
them were race horses. Not onl did the horses
take up valuable space on a ship which could
-and Now What?
WE SEE Europe as a moral problem; the Brit-
ish see it as a hungry land. Thus, at a mo-
ment when we Americans are torn by a debate as
to whether to try for a world government, or for
the world's greatest military and naval forces,
the British public is torn by a debate on how to
feed the Continent. There is vividly expressed,
in this contrast, all the difference between the
sweeping, or wholesale, view of the world, and the
particular, specific, or what might be called re-
tail view.
It is not surprising, then, that the first Brit-
ish reaction to the President's Navy Day speech
on foreign policy is one of disappointment
over the President's complete concentration
on general principles. He stated many of these
principles very well; but in the end they
amounted to assertions that we Americans are
a people of good character and high purpose,
animated by hatred of tyranny and belief in
freedom. All this is true; no one seriously
doubts it; in fact no one has even raised the
What the world wants to know about us is how
a nation of good character and high purpose in-
tends to act on the questions presented by Ger-
many, Japan, Spain, Palestine, Argentina, etc.,
* * *
PERHAPS a consciousness that the ocean is
still three thousand miles wide lives on in the
delight we take in generalities. For with few ex-
ceptions (such as the Christian Science Monitor,
and Mr. Walter Lippmann) the bulk of Ameri-
can agencies of comment have tagged right along
with the President, engaging ecstatically with
him in a discussion of unchangeable axioms and
eternal veraities.
But, according to press dispatches, the Brit-
ish want to know whether we are going to help
police Palestine. What do our eternal principles
say, specifically, about that? How are we go-
ing to reconcile our unalterable stand against
unilateral decisions, with our unalterable be-
lief that we must have the final word over
Japan? What happens when an irresistible
verity meets an immovable axiom?
THERE is nothing wrong with our principles;
we would not be Americans without them,
and we must use them as guides. All right,
where do they guide us? It is on this point that
the President's speech says extraordinarily little,
and it is to be noted that while we Americans
have been debating the question of whether the
President is right or wrong, the rest of.the world
has been discussing an entirely different ques-
tion, namely: what, if anything did he say?
For the world is not general, the world is
sadly specific; and it is perhaps always better,
in national as in human affairs, to have the
world deduce what our character is from our
actions, than to make it try to guess what our
actions will be from a declaration concerning
our characters.
If we should offer, in the name of world coop-
eration, to throw every international question
into the areana of world discussion, including all
Latin American and Japanese problems, the
world would very quickly deduce that we stood
for world collaboration and world unity. If we
were to make it clear that there is no place for
Generalissimo Franco in the postwar period, and

that we accent our responsibilities in Palestine,
the world would know at once how we stand on
punishing fascism ahd relieving its victims.
It is because we do not act that we have to
tell the world, and ourselves over and over
again, what we are. But such speeches never
really fill the gap; the world listens, and, next
morning, comes to itself, and asks: Yes, and
now what? And now?

have carried G.I.'s, but an airplane-load of
brass hats flew across the Atlantic from Fort
Riley to make sure their, steeds got safely
aboard. The boys who loaded the horses re-
inained on in Germany.
2. Last week-end, fop Air Transport Command
officers gave No. 1 priority for three Army planes
to carry football personnel from Nashville to
Washington. Of course, this was in connection
with the ATC football game, but the boys sitting
on Eniwetok or Saipan can't enjoy football, and
airplanes could help to bring them home. (Many
combat veterans discharged from Fort Lewis,
Wash., have to ride 3,500 miles in day coaches.)
3. The other day a Liberty ship, the Connie L.
Kluxton, arrived in Baltimore from Germany
bringing only 47 soldiers but 15,000 tons of sand
ballast. It's true that Liberty ships are not
equipped as troop-carriers, but soldiers don't
care much how they travel if they are coming
4. Down at MacDill Field, Fla., Col. E. G.
Simenson used two big cargo planes on a trip
to his home in North Dakota to shoot pheas-
ants. One of the planes was used to fly to the
rescue of the other when the first went bad at
Terre Haute, Ind. The Colonel even carried a
jeep inside the first plane to scare up pheasants
after he got to North Dakota.
Col. Simenson had been in Europe for a long
time, his parents live in North Dakota, and no-
body would begrudge him a visit home-espe-
cially since General Marshall and Gen. Hap
Arnold also flew to shoot pheasants.
But the thing that brass hats don't seem to
realize is the effect all this flying around in big
planes has on the men who would like to use
those same planes to fly home. Until rank fa-
voritism is eliminated, the generals will have a
hard time building up the new 4,000,000-man
army proposed by George Marshall-unless Con-
gress rams it down the G.I.'s throats.
10,000 Crusoes e
ENIWETOK atoll in mid-Pacific is just two
miles long, one-half a mile wide. On it are
crammed nearly 10,000 U. S. sailors and Marines,
falling all over each other, sitting on the beach,
hunting shells, waiting, waiting for ships or
planes to take them home.
On the island, SeaBees are building a 3,000-
man laundry, though no more than 500 men will
ever be stationed on Eniwetok in piping days of
peace. They are also building a 3,000-man ice-
cream plant, a gigantic garage, a huge hospital,
and luxurious Quonset huts for senior officers,
with flush toilet.
A conference of officers was held the other
day to encourage men to join the regular Navy.
A senior Annapolis officer gave a pep talk.
Among other things he said: "Any enlisted men
who does not wear a complete uniform at all
times will be put on 14 days bread and water."
(This after they had been allowed to wear any
type of clothing for 19 months. Witness Mac-
Arthur's and Halsey's open collars.)

We feel that anything said along
the line of . . "it's a long, hard grind
so buckle down" . . . or . . . "do your
work now and you can have fun in
your junior or senior years" . . would
be superfluous. We're almost certain
that the freshmen have that Party
Line thrown at them from the very
time they hook a finger on a dean's
teacup, until they suddenly receive
the urge to find out about the other
half. In case you are a freshman
male, the figure is not "half", but
rather "three-fourths". If you are
a freshman coed, the figure is "one-
We decided to tell the freshmen
the things that they would like
to hear. Our information isn't or-
dinarily found in any of the local
propaganda pamphlets;it's the sort
that's usually confided with a
knowing leer by an upperclassman
who knows most of the ropes and
all the "NOTS".
The most comfortably convenient
meeting for the men is arranged by
inserting an advertisement in the
"Daily" to the effect that Mr. Joe
Frosh will receive visitors from 2 to
5 Sundays. The only thing that
makes this method a sure bet is the
way that the coeds outnumber the
men. It's a bit more complicated for
the socially inclined coed. We have
noticed that for the past few years
the girls have been ganging up on
the men. They rig up some sort of
communal venture, politely labeled
"open house," and bend all their ef-
forts to attracting the wary male.
The girls usually have a coalition
agreement wherein they subscribe to
a hands-off policy until the exits are
locked and bolted, and then it's every
man for herself. These projects are
usually held in appropriately cavern-
ous halls such as are found in the
It's always a problem to enter-
tain a date in Ann Arbor, and it's
expensive, too. We can remember
taking a girl out on a coke date
once and running up a thirty cent
bill. We don't remember how much
hers came to. There is of course
the Arboretum as a first resort, and
the local cinema as a last. You're
a fool to take her out eating. The
Michigan freshman coed gives but
occasional thought to her sylph-
like figure and is notorious for eat-
ing like a horse, especially if some-
one is footing the bill.
The few elementary suggestions
outlined above ought to be enough
direction to the enterprising fresh-
man to guide him on to the straight
but not so narrow. We are confident
that when used as a "chaser" for the
"keep your nose to the grindstone"
advice, our directory will be as valu-
able as a collection of last year's
psychology notes and quizzes.

THE Lynn committee to abolish se-
gregation in the armed forces is
not a new organization, but is one
which now that the war is over de-
serves to be given recognition by all
who feel that the ideals for which the
war was fought should be practiced
Such men as Carey McWilliams

and George S. Schuyler are sponso,
of the committee currently engagee
in the defense of George L. Haney.

jail because he refused to take ar.
oath in a service which discriminates
on color grounds.
The committee writes, "This is
the army and navy that not only
defeated the Nazis, but was pledged
to stamp out the Nazi 'racial theor-
ies' as well." But in these services,
25 negroes lost their lives, not by
enemy action, but by other Ameri-
cans, civilian and military.

The main function of this commit-
tee has been to provide much-needed
legal assistance for the victims of
racial discrimination in the armed
forces. Its past work and continued
purpose is commendable.

THE Art Cinema League, always a welcome fea-
ture of campus life, starts off the new season
with a Russian spectacle, "1812," based on a
portion of Tolstoy's "War and Peace."
As befits its subject, Napoieon's invasion of
Russia and the famous retreat from Moscow,
the film is a huge, sprawling one. It is saved
from artistic failure by a magnificent por-
trayal of Marshal Kutuzov by A. Dykki, and a
number of gem-like bits that make it an in-
triguing evening of cinema.
Since I'm one of that vast body of illiterati
who have never devoted a summer to reading Mr.
T.'s opus maximus, I can't vouch for the film's
literary fidelity. But judged by itself it is un-
doubtedly a praiseworthy historical drama.
Technically, the Russians haven't yet ap-
proached Hollywood. The Battle of Borodino too
often resembles a monstrous football scrimmage,
and the photography is too often repititous.
In the wake of the famous New Yorker car-
toon on captions for foreign-language films, I
might observe that the high-point of "1812"
occurs when, after a devastating five-minute
storm scene, the English sub-title observes, " .. .
and then the real frosts set in."
An accompanying short subject, "Leningrad
Music Hall," was the most solid hit of the eve-
ning. It presented a series of delightful musi-
cal specialities, topped off with excerpts from
"Rigoletto" sung in Russian.
