Fortune Surve
HITLER HAS STOPPED ranting and raving
and the war is over, but the followers of Der
Fuehrer in this country are keeping up the good
work. In view of the fact that anti-Semitism
is still going strong, wemight examine the re-
sults of a survey of the general public, made
by Fortune magazine and published in this
month's issue, which attempts to determine
"what sort of people they (anti-Semites) are
and what sort of ideas are in their heads."
The survey identified anti-Semites by means
of a questionnaire, in which the following were
offered as opportunities to express hostility
to Jews: "Are there any organizations or
groups of people in this country who you feel
might be harmful to the future of the country
unless they are curbed? Are there any groups
of people you think are trying to get ahead
at the expense of people like you?"
Those who answered in the affirmative to
these questions were asked to name the group;
the results showed the percentage of conscious
anti-Semites (9.4 per cent in the fall of 1943)
to be 8.8 per cent of the adult population.
Conclusions drawn from answers made by this
group to questions on various controversial sub-
jects include:y
1. Anti-Semitism increases with wealth.
2. Anti-Semitism is strongest in the North-
east and middle west, and is weakest in the
south and far west.
3. Anti-Semitism is strongest in large cities,
weakest in .small towns.
4. Anti-Semitism is strongest among the
age group 35-49, weakest in the age group
5. Anti-Semitism runs parallel with hostility
to Great Britain and Russia.
6. Anti-Semitism runs parallel with disap-
proval of large-scale government work proj-
ects to help prevent unemployment and with
disapproval of labor unions.

WASHINGTON--President Truman frequently
remarks to friends: "I spend one-third of
of my time trying to persuade good men to stay
in the Government, and another third of my
time trying to persuade good men to come into
the Government."
However, the President is so loyal to friends
that here is one thing he doesn't realize. If he
would get rid of one key man in the White
House, a 101; of people would jump at the chance
to work for him.
That one key man is ex-St. Louis bank cashier
John Snyder, the war reconverter.
Time after time, men high in Roosevelt
councils have resigned or else refused to join
the Truman administration because they
would not work with Snyder. One was Robert
Nathan, whom Truman had known back in
the days of the Truman committee. Truman
begged Nathan to remain on in Government.
Nathan didn't tell him so, but the reason he
left was because everything he tried to do was
boxed by Snyder.
Another man who bowed out for similar rea-
sons was Isador Lubin, for years on Roosevelt's
staff. When Truman urged him to stay, Lubin
said he would come in and work without pay
whenever needed; but he did not tell Truman
that the reason he was leaving was John Snyder.
Blunt-spoken Postmaster General Bob Han-
negan, however, has not minced words. He
has told Truman exactly what he thinks of
his fellow St. Louisan. Secretary of the Treas-
ury Fred Vinson has been more judicious, but
nevertheless has also made it clear as to how
he feels.
With Harry 'Truman, however, a friend is a
friend. And the more they jump on John Snyder,
the more Truman sticks by him - no matter
what happens to the country and reconversion.
NOTE I -- Recently Truman persuaded ex-
Mayor Wilson Wyatt of Louisville to come to
Washington to undertake a new housing pro-
gram. Reluctantly, Wyatt agreed. But imme-
diately after he worked up an excellent hous-
ing program, John Snyder stepped in and
stopped it.
NOTE 2- Carl Sandburg, famous Lincoln
historian, compares Truman to Lincoln when
it comes to John Snyder. Chief of Staff Henry
W. Halleck was always being criticized by
Lincoln's associates, but Lincoln, according to
Sandburg, said: "Halleck doesn't seem to have
a friend, so I guess I'll have to stand by him."
Soviet lreeonvers ion
THE United States is not the only major na-
tion enjoying reconversion headaches. Com-
rade Joe Stalin with all his "planned socialist
efficiency" is in exactly the same mess-perhaps
more so.
While Stalin has no strike troubles, the
pressure from the Russian people for con-
sumer goods is so great that the Communist
High Command is practically turning the
government inside out to get the bare essen-
tials of life for Russia's people.
The Russians are frank to admit the short-
comings of their planned economy. One writer
in the newspaper Pravda points out very seri-
ously that "some factory managers are so
anxious to prove they are good producers that
they switch products," producing the wrong
products merely because they are easier to turn
out. Another writer reveals that the Lenin fac-
tory in the city of Gorky is "a highly qualified
factory capable of .making radio receiver sets,
loudspeakers, and electrical appliances. But, for
some reason, it is producing nothing but spoons,
cups and shovels ...and in small doses."
Lamb Among Wolves
ONE OF THE MOST reactionary committees
in Congress is the House Rules Committee.
However, its chairman, Adolph Sabath of Chi-
cago, is one of the most liberal crusaders on
Capitol Hill. Obviously his life is difficult.
Not many colleagues knew it, but not long
ago Representative Gene Cox of Georgia start-
ed an undercover move to clip the wings of the
79-year-old Sabath. The Georgian, who is
one of the worst reactionaries in Congress,
came to a closed-door session of the committee
with a proposal to amend committee rules so
that no one personally opposed to what the
committee has voted can lead the fight on the

House floor for that particular rule.
This would mean that Cox, instead of Sabath,
would control the debating time whenever
Sabath was licked in the committee vote on a
rule for some anti-labor bill.
As Cox read his proposal, Sabath looked
around and noted that a bare quorum of the
committee was present. He leaned toward Re-
publican Representative Clarence Brown of Ohio
and, in a throaty whisper, said:
"Clarence, get out of here - go on down to
the floor."
Brown, who was watching the battle brew-
ing, did not move. If he had, there would
have been no quorum and Cox would have
been out of order. Sabath whispered to him
again, saw Brown had no intention of leav-
ing, so banged his gavel and shouted:
"The gentleman is out of order!"
Cox went on and read another proposal pro-
viding that when the chairman was not present,
members of the committee could meet anyhow,
with the highest-ranking Democrat on hand to
serve as chairman.

Agu in -3ba mt siiouted: "Out of order!''
Cox, recoming angry at this point, retorted,
"I appeal the rule of the chair."
Other committee members sat by quietly,
laughing behind their hands.
Sabath again banged his gavel and shouted:
"I hold your vppeal to be out of order!"
No support came forward for Cox, and the
Georgian was powerless to carry his fight any
further. 'The chairman of a committee has
the last say unless overruled.
Since, then, +Cox has bridled frequently at
colleagues who know what happened and who
kid him about his "new rules for the rules
JUSTICE department officials have been pep-
pered with demands that the famous anti-
sedition trial be reopened, but they never ex-
pected one of the defendants to join the clamor.
He is Prescott Dennett, now a private in an
Army Medical Battalion at Carlisle Barracks, Pa.
Dennett came to Washington the other day
and asked that Representative Adolph Sabath
of Illinois go to bat for him in getting the trial
reopened sc he could be "cleared or convicted"
by due process. That failing, Dennett declared
he would attempt to get a "Presidential pardon,"
though now this could be done without his first
being convicted, he didn't make clear.
Declarig he was an "original anti-fascist,"
Dennett said:
"Why, I was once arrested in Italy when
Mussollni was running things there."

Do icnie Says

N A GREEK legend Oedipus unknowingly
killed his father and married his mother.
The extreme complex identifi'ed by the analyst
of today has been well named after that divided
personality. The hidden influence of fate drove
the tragedy forward. Until recent decades it
was common belief that fate ruled. While the
generations finally might learn from the facts,
the actors themselves, so it was believed, could
only walk the stage and suffer. There is a de-
gree to which events do continue to march us
all at times into fortune and at other times
back us into the jaws of destruction. However
psychological research, social science, mecal
advancement and general education have done
much to free man from fate and to make him
or them master of situations. The "him or
them" reference is significant. It is joint par-
ticipation, social reliance, interdependence, and
mutual responsibility which spell progress.
Individualism, good as the raw material of
a pioneer epoch, necessary in the genius and
the leader, and essential to the first genera-
tion as in Edna Ferber's novel "Great Son"
is not always a virtue in city life.. The major
virtues are social ones. Modern plays there-
fore, as "The Silver Cord" take issue with the
deterministic explanation and rest their case
upon social training in the family. It is now
known that cause and effect always have a
definite place in the growing-up process. Laws
can take over the black domain too long ruled
by fate. Referring to inadequate persons
Menneninger in his revised "The Human
Mind," says, "They are, as we say, fixated
always on the mother or father, or it may be
a brother or sister, or someone who closely
represents one of those early pillars."
Religion that faith in ultimate worth, intro-
duces a healing, a remedial and a curative hope.
It is easy to claim too much, but one item is
valid as a religious asset, namely, the child who
has really learned to worship God, that "Wholly
Other", has won the initial battle of personality.
To center the loyalty on yonder infinite Being,
the all-good, is to understand the universe as
concerned about all mankind and to see God
evident in every living thing. That child has
set himself in wholesome perspective. First as
youth, then adult, then parent, and later the
leader of a century, perhaps, he will be able to
live the life of a savior but never know it. Here
is the victory of freedom. This is the end for
all true education. Set opposite whole aggrega-
tions of self lovers, anti-social bipeds and man-
sized infants who make up the unhappy fringe
of a University, a Church, or a City, such a per-
son can become both the physician and the con-
science of many.
The teachers and counseling agencies of a
University can produce such leaders if relig-
iousness pervades the classroom, the study
hall, the laboratory and the dormitory. Pray
for your mentors; they merit gratitude. Those
functionaries either above you in the scheme
of things or below, who go evenly on day after
day are rare benefactors. You and I are
debtors. If the well integrated members of
our community will practice good will, those
mentors can find the energy, patience and
wisdom to serve the few who need desperately
the guidance provided. Whole zones of con-
fidence are indispensable if we are to banish

Judge Frank deals here with the

social destiny of America. He con-
cludes with the expression of a dy-

stone of which is that Americans are
free to choose the future of their so-

Food for Europe
AMERICANS, reputedly the most
generous people on earth, are
opening their bread-basket to the
world. President Truman has set up
a program to help reduce the gnaw-
ing of hunger in countries less
bountiful than ours. He hints that
realization of this program may re-
sult in shortages of certain food com-
modities in the United States, and
the possible return of some rationing
has been suggested by government
officials and news analysts.
We may expect additional abuse
to be heaped on the Truman "Raw
Deal" administration. Our bread
will become grayer. Horrors! (Its
greater vitamin value is not to be
considered.) It will take a great
deal' of courage for the American

public to eat such stuff. But we
are sure that the people who with-
stood the trials of war deprivations
(including a generally higher food
standard than before the war) will
be able to shoulder the great bur-
den of grayer bread.
A recent survey shows that the
majority of America's farmers either
oppose sending food abroad for relief
supplies orsupport such action only
if it will not decrease home supplies.
One would think they have to sur-
render produce for overseas use with-
out proper compensation.
Little matters such as this, involv-
ing merely the lives of several million
people, shouldn't disturb us, we know.
After all, didn't we do enough al-
ready? Haven't we always done too
much? We saved England for soc-
ialism and Russia for Communism.
All by our little selves we have twice
saved the world for "democracy."
(England and Russia don't count.)

Attention All Students: Registra-
tion for the Spring Term
By action of the Conference of
Deans, all students are required to

Ital's Colonies
to advocate strongly that Italy be allowed
to keep her four African colonies-Tripolitania,
Cirenaica, Eritrea, and Somaliland.
She is, thus, likely to fail in this attempt at
lessening the harshness of the peace treaty,
for the United States, Britain, and Russia
want all colonial possessions taken from Italy.
The reason they give is Italy's bad record in
neglecting the interests of her colonial peoples
and in using the regions for war purposes.
France's representative to the Big Four peace
conference in London, Couve de Murville, has
argued that the treaty will be hard enough on
Italy, in that she will probably forfeit the
Dodecanese and part of the Julian March, pay
reparations, and have great reductions made in
her armed forces. Her colonies, he says, should
be left her, for "it would be wrong to drive the
Italian people to despair."
It is doubtful if the Big Four are going to
worry much about keeping their former enemies
from despair. The main point would seem to be
that, by taking the Italian colonies, the ques-
tion of who shall receive them is raised, to form
