By SAMUEL GRAFTON
THE first phase of our occupation of Germany
has ended. The Germans are beginning to or-
ganize. Their organization takes the unlovely
form of physical attacks on individual American
soldiers in several communities; and General
Eistenhower, watching the signs, reports that or-
ganized resistance directed against our occupa-
tion forces as a whole is now a possibility. The
period of German servility is probably ending;
or, rather, we are entering a period of competi-
tion among several forms of German leadership
to capture control of the servile masses.
The outbreaks of violence have been sporadic
up to this point, and are blamed on German
youth, both boys and girls, still largely Nazi, and
on German soldiers who have come home from
prison camps to find their wives and sweethearts
living with Americans.
The attacks are local, directed against in-
dividuals, or town garrisons, and have not
yet coalesced into a zone-wide movement un-
der self-conscious leadership. So far they rep-
resent only occasional uprisings of the dis-
gruntled against the bored, but given enough
unemployment, cold and hunger this winter,
the movement may soon take a larger and
more deliberate form.
The obvious answer is repression; but the one
axiom established by this war is that repression
never represses. The conqueror is compelled
wearily to try it, but his every move along the
line gives the resisters an added point for their
program and for their propaganda.
The other method is a kind of bribery; to
make jobs, somehow, to bring in food and
clothes, an approach which the Germans also
tried in one or two spots. We may take this
tack, but it is hard to believe it will halt re-
sistance, or that it will seem to the people of
the place to be anything but a political victory,
won by means of threat and menace, as, in-
deed, it is. If the burden of the above seems
to be that occupation is, at best, a dismal en-
terprise, that is probably correct.
BUT the thing is further complicated by our re-
lations with Russia. Saul K. Padover has
shown, in his series of "Nation" articles, how
our Military Government officials made whole-
sale use of Nazis in the early stages of occupa-
tion, partly because of their fear of boleshevism;
they shied away from anti-fascists, because they
might be reds. (Padover quotes one Military
Government official as shouting: "I know these
anti-fascists; they are all bandits.")
Our Military Government officials do not
always show the same tendency to shy away
from anti-Russians on the ground that they
might be fascists. Anti-Russian sentiment in
our zone is becoming bolder; and some Ger-
Rah Rah Revives
THE cause for it is uncertain, but its arrival
is certainly heartily welcomed by all. We doubt
that a stray bit of atom bomb has struck the
University recently, at least no report of same
is anywhere recorded. But it must have been an
equally strong force which has knocked back
into this campus some of the old RAH RAH
spirit for which it was once famous.
Not since the pre-war days has such a brisk
surge of feeling been registered, as was evidenced
by last night's Pep Rally.
The opening and successful operation of a stu-
dent book exchange is another encouraging move
in the right direction.
It is this feeling of interest and cooperation
on the part of the student body which will
serve to foster the healthful growth of our
University even as much as its physical re-
juvenation and expansion will.
We are on the brink of the long awaited post-
war era. Just as reconversion is the national
pass-word; let it be ours. Now is the time to re-
institute those things which the war forced us to
abandon. Let's see there-birth, for example, of
that undergraduate cheering section identified
by its bright gold jackets adorned with a Wol-
verine patch. (A few are still around.) It is this
sort of thing which gives spark and color to what
otherwise might be an ardous campus life.
Perhaps it is the return of so many veterans
into the fibre of campus life which is serving
as this motivating force, for these men, most
of them former college students and a good
many former Michigan ,men, knew what it was
like before the war forced a curtailment in this
vital aspect of campus life.
But whatsoever the reason, a good beginning
has been made-the road ahead is clear-so
let's move forward.
mans tell our reporters candidly that they
look forward to a war between America and
Russia in the spring.
Thus there is a kind of double movement go-
ing on in our zone; while we are attacked, physi-
cally, from below, by outright fascists, we our-
selves show a certain tendency to reach out to
fascist-minded Germans from above, men who
are not very different, in essence, from those who
lead uprisings against us. That is a hard way to
run a railroad.
Thus the German problem reflects our world
problem, and that is why plans for a "better
kind" of occupation of Germany, no matter how
clever or ingenious they may be, are somehow
always felt to be vaguely unsatisfactory. There
is no possibility of a "better" occupation until
we resolve our relation with Russia. And here
we have just one more illustration of the in-
furiatingly sticky quality of the problems of
our age; they are all mashed together, in one
undigested lump; and it is our sad fate that
we have to solve them all to solve any of them.

DOGAN ARTHUR, president of the Interfra-
ternity Council, has made a plea for all vet-
erans to contact their respective fraternities. At
the present time, many veterans have returned to
campus without contacting their fraternities. The
services of the Interfraternity Council have
been offered to the fraternities and veterans for
the purpose of re-establishing contact between
Yet many veterans are reluctant to re-af-
filiate because they fear that fraternities have
changed, that the fraternities are of inferior
quality, that the fraternity members are much
too young in comparison with their advanced
ages and that the fraternities will not welcome
No one will argue that the standard of fra-
ternities remained constant during the war. With
the shortage of male students, many fraternities
found the going very difficult. Some dropped out
but others managed to survive by one course or
another. The usual picture of the war-time fra-
ternity envisaged either a house of campus serv-
icemen or 17-year olds who would stay for one
or two semesters.
The average age of the fraternity man was
much younger and leadership of fraternities fell
on the shoulders of the younger men.
But this situation has now changed. The fra-
ternities are, at last acquiring a stable mem
bership. Leadership is returning to the hands
of older and more mature men. Selective serv-
ice calls have leveled off resulting in more se-
curity for the fraternity man and the fratern-
But the veteran still looks at the fraternity
members as a bunch of youngsters since their
ages may be from two to seven years younger.
What the veteran may Aot be considering is that
veterans like himself returning to the fraternity
will take over the leadership of that fraternity,
that these veterans have much in common, in-
cluding an interest in their fraternity, and that
wtih the veteran influence on campus, the fra-
ternities themselves will not be any less affected
than any other campus organization.
During these days of housing shortages, the
fraternity can still provide more than adequate
housing accommodations, as well as the fraternal
friendship of veteran and non-veteran alike.
That the fraternity will not welcome the vet-
eran is a fallacy. While acquiring a miore stable
position, fraternities have lost much tradition and
prestige during the war because they have lacked
the guidance of older and more experienced men.
The fraternities realize that the vet can pro-
vide needed experience, leadership, and a stabil-
izing factor. They will gladly welcome the re-
turn of their former members and will encourage
them to participate in fraternal activities.
At the same time many fraternities are re-
vamping outmoded fraternity procedures to
conform to the expected influx of veterans,
both as returning veterans and as prospective
pledges. They realize that juvenile policies will
not be tolerated by the campaign veteran.
In this light, it is obvious that the fraternities
have much to offer the veteran, that the fra-
ternities are willing to go more than halfway
to meet the veteran, and that fraternity par-
ticipation will prove of benefit to veteran; and

THAT the returning veterans on campus are
impatient with red tape was evidenced at the
Veterans' Rally when an American Red Cross
representative said that lectures and articles on
the vet were just "so much malarkey," and mat-
ters could be handled more efficiently.
This statement was followed by loud applause
by nearly 400 veterans. attending the Rally.
Veterans' Administration authorities from Dear-
born had discussed the complicated procedure
each file and claim of veterans must go through
before checks are mailed out. These agencies
were never on the government priority list and
could not have the space, personnel, or supplies
necessary for handling all business rapidly.
Apparently the vet believes matters need not
be so complicated and do not require so much
red tape if the reaction at the Rally is any in-
The University veterans' agencies and per-
sonnel and the federal authorities have done a
remarkable job in most cases handing the vet-
erans' claims but theoveteran still sees room for
rapid improvement and he wants it in a hurry.
Attention all house heads and
house presidents: Every dormitory,
auxiliary dormitory, sorority house,
and league house must have sign-out
sheet records starting the day the
house opened for the fall semester.
Sign-out sheets and composite
sheets may be obtained from the So-
cial Director's Office in the Women's
Sign-out sheets accompanied by a
composite sheet must be turned in
to the League Undergraduate Office
every Monday by 5:00 p. m. All
sheets must be made out in ink or
indelible pencil and dated Monday
through Sunday inclusive.

It is perhaps sad, in a time when it is gener-
