Campus AVC
IN AN ERA of fluid policy and progressive
views, a new organization for World War II
veterans is quietly being organized -in these
United States. "Americans first and veterans sec-
ond" is their cry, and its effects on our twelve
million returning servicemen is devastating.
Quietly sitting on the sideline, labor leaders,
other veteran organizations, and politicians are
keeping a watchful eye on these nation builders
of tomorrow, and what they see in large print are
the words 'American Veterans Committee,' a vig-
orous democratic group composed of men who
won the war and have every intention of win-
ning the peace. This is not a hysteria one-night-
stand organization: there are such men as Col-
onel Evans F. Carlson, leader of the Marine
raiders, Grant Reynolds, and most important
member of all, G. I. Joe in civvies.
AVC was born on the battlefield in 1943 dur-
ing the nightly bull-sessions of our fighting-
men; it was then brought over to America by
Charles G. Bolt6, a slim twenty-five year old
veteran who left his right leg at El Alamein
as a remembrance of a peace that failed.
Charles G. Bolt6 at present is chairman of the
National Planning Committee in New York.
The trail then branches off with Jack Weiss,
sophomore veteran at the University, carrying
the spark of AVC from a chapter he founded in
Brooklyn to the new one in Ann Arbor.
This small insignificant spark, born in the
flame of battle, is now spreading over the
country. Its purpose, not to destroy but to
illuminate any threats of aggression against
these United States of America.

Vet Villagce
"HOME is where you hang your hat" claims
the old proverb and the families living in
Veterans' Village are making homes of a room
just large enough for themselves . .. . and a hat.
For many ofthe veterans and families these
tiny 8 x 20 rooms are the first place they can
call their own and the first place they can cook,
hang pictures, or use wedding presents.
Veterans' Village was a challenge to the Uni-.
versity and is a challenge to the veteran.
The University attempted to make Veterans'
Village as comfortable, pleasant and livable as
possible, and it succeeded. They listened to the
complaints of the veterans and their requests and
tried to satisfy all.

It is now up to the veteran and his wife to
make the Village an ultimate success, and they

Inno cents
CRIES about the muddle in the American zone
of occupation in Germany are becoming in-
creasingly familiar. AMG seems to be playing the
role of "Innocents Abroad." It is not entirely
their fault.
Actually, no one seems definite about what our
policy is or is to be in Germany. Do we intend

WASHINGTON-U. S. officials aren't in com-
plete agreement about it, but one thing they
may discuss with Prime Minister Attlee during
his visit is Britain's apparent policy of building
up Germany, presumably as a buffer state
against Russia.
This was definitely Churchill's policy. But,
though a Labor government has succeeded him,
secret sessions of the Allied Economic Direc-
torate in Berlin continue to show significant
clashes between the British and Russians over
German's economic futur'e.
At one recent closed-door session in Berlin,
members of the economic directorate listened to
a report on abolishing Germany's cartel system,
a plan previously agreed on at Potsdam. But Sir
Percy Mills, the British delegate, interrupted.
"By the time we decentralize Germany," he
said, "there won't be anything left to liquidate."
Doubtless he was referring to the Russian pol-
icy of speedily tearing down and removing Ger-
man industry.
Sir Percy then proposed that the committee
consider again his own report on advance repa-
rations payments. General Shabalin, the Soviet
delegate, agreed, but asked the French dele-
gate, M. Sergent, why it was that only one-
third of the I. G. Farben plant at Ludwigshav-
en was listed for transfer to the Allies as part
of reparations payments. He wanted to know
what the French proposed doing with the re-
maining two-thirds of the plant.
(The destruction or removal of the I. G. Far-
ben plants, a prime source of Hitler's munitions,
has been subject to great inter-Allied debate.
State Department representative Robert Murphy

110minie Says

IN OUR POST-WAR world do we make religious
progress by faith or by revolt? Where is the
union of the e two aspects of our common life?
The great Catholic scholar, Jacques Maritain,
until recently at Princeton but now at the Vati-
can representing the new French Government, in
his brilliant book "Christianity and Democracy"
has pointed out that in recent decades Christian-
ity seems impotent, unable to take advantage of
its opportunities, weak in the critical periods and
indifferent to the major social objectives of its
He reminds us that while it was the Christian
drive which brought the American revolution,
it was the revolting agnostics who introduced
liberty and fraternity into France and the pro-
testing atheists who developed a people's econ-
omy for the Russians. His lamentation is over
the inability of the followers of Jesus to per-
sistently merge the two commandments: (1)
Thou shalt love God and (2) Thou shalt love
thy neighbor as thyself, in social practice.
Deputations by religious bodies to Japan, to
Germany and to various devastated countries
such as Ukrainia or Poland and magnificent in-
vestments by missionary reconstruction boards,
are heartening. But the real issue is how to keep
clear the religious ideal and at the same time
revolt against every injustice, maldistribution,
racial evil or war-making practice.
It may be as important to prove-up on certain
byproducts as to achieve a major objective. For
example no labor leader ever labels his strike a
revolt against the Christianity of his employer
or the manager. He talks about rights. And now
comes Walter Reuther, a Union officer, insisting
that the books of industry be opened. Here is a
protest whose goal is a finer justice for all con-
The basis discussed is not that of the ideal
but that of rights. A new day for those who
work with their hands may be upon us. The
war of production within World War II may
go down in history as a gain over Fascism on a
front where generals, battalions and bombs
were not in evidence. Jesus sought for men a
more abundant life. Some protests serve that
However, revolt must never be mistaken for
the ideal nor assumed as completed social action.
There is within the life of the religious commun-
ity a serenity born of faith, a grace bequeathed
of God, a sensitivity to need and a love for that
which is good in itself.
Says Carl Becker, in "New Frontiers For Old,"
p. 150, speaking of the spiritual values: "They
have a life of their own apart from any particular
social system or type of civilization. They are
the values which, since the time of Buddha and
Confucius, Solomon and Zoroaster, Plato, and
Aristotle, Socrates and Jesus, men have common-
ly employed to straighten the advance or the de-
cline of civilizatioi, the values they have agreed
to canonize. They are the values that readily lend
themselves to rational justification, yet need no
It is in such values that the two command-
ments, the one on ends to be sought and the
other on means to be used, find their unity.
Man-to-man relations invariably have man-to-
God significance.

Counselor in Religious Education.

has sent several cables back to Washington urg-
ing that these munitions plants be preserved.)
The Frenchman replied that the Ludwigs-
haven plant was large and complex, but that
the third unit, which the French had put on
the list for advance reparations payments, was
an independent unit and could be packed up
and hauled to France immediately. The re-
maining two-thirds, he said, are working for
the Allies and, therefore; needed in Germany.
Russo-British Clash
SIR PERCY MILLS then proposed discussing a
list of plants he had drawn up for the
western zone of Germany.
"Why is it," asked General Shabalin, "That
you don't want to discuss the report which I
have prepared on this subject? May I remind
you that all the members are supposed to
work on the problem of advance reparations?
May I also ask why the Russian report has not
been included? Why do you insist on dealing
with your own report?"
"I regret to say I haven't had time to read the
Russian report" Sir Percy replied. "Besides, your
report is written in Russian and I don't read
At this the Red Army officer hit the ceiling.
"I do not see," he remarked acidly, "how the
directorate could have ignored the Russian pro-
"I don't see that it makes much difference,"
countered the Britisher. "I have a pretty good
idea of what the Russian proposal is, and, even
if I had read it, I don't think it would change
the ideas of the English, French and American
At this point, the French delegate smoothed
over the troubled waters by urging that the Rus-
sian report be translated immediately and then
studied by the committee. This was agreed.
The American delegate, Gen. William H.
Draper, then helped further to smooth things
out by proposing that all German firms em-
ploying more than 3,000 persons or with an
annual turnover of 25,000,000 reichsmarks be
required to report to the Allies. This pleased
the Russians, who vigorously favor dismantling
most German business.
General Shabalin then stated that he under-
stood the economic directorate had the power to
decide what German companies were to be put
out of business. This was unanimously agreed.
Thus continues the see-saw of old-world pol-
itics for post-war position. It was Britain's
balancing France off against Germany after
the last war which led to a Germany too
strong for France to handle.
