Clear Policy
THE United States government has effectively
answered speculations about its future status
in the world community.
In a report on initial UNO accomplishments,
President Truman strongly reaffirmed this
nation's belief in collective security by asserting
that the UNO charter "is vital to all Americans."
Practical proof of this attitude was Secretary of
State James F. Byrnes flat rejection of the
Anglo-American military alliance proposed by
Winston Churchill at Fulton, Mo.
The clarification of U.S. policy has consider-
ably eased the tension reflected in the Russian
press. Pravda, in the first place, was not con-
vinced that Churchill's speech was unofficial.
They also noted that Truman had had two
weeks in which to discuss the text with the
former prime minister and concluded that the
President sanctioned the proposals.
T E gover.nment's declarations have cleared
the air with Russia; they are commendable
for that alone. But they are even more import-
ant in their emphatic refusal to compromise
world partnership, or to look the other way
while an arbitrary Russia goes its solitary way.
"The United States," Byrnes declared, "is
committed to the support of the Charter of
the United Nations. We propose to stand with
the United Nations in our efforts to secure
equal justice for all nations and special priv-
ilege for no nation."
The United States has become guardian of
the world community in its infancy. The last
few weeks have shown we will have to buck the
giants of British imperialism and Russian in-
capacity for collective solution of problems. Our
unwavering support-even our military might-
now are pledged to UNO. If vigorously and
consistently asserted, they are great enough to
make it work.

Axis Sally
T is interesting to note that American counter-
intelligence agents in Berlin have finally cap-
tured "Axis Sally", the honey-voiced, American-
Lorn purveyor of Axis propaganda on Berlin
Sally, identified as Mildred E. Gillars, 36,
formerly of Portland, Me., will be remembered
by any American soldier from the Mediterran-
ean Theater of Operations as the co-prodlger
of a propaganda broadcast known as "Saly
and George" which deserves recognition as
probably the corniest and most entertaining
of all the numerous Berlin-inspired programs
beamed to American troops overseas.
In attempts to foment unrest Sally and
George interspersed their program of recordings
of American music with such skits as one por-
traying an American wife or girl friend being
lured from the fold by an American civilian.
They were, needless to remark, more entertain-
ing than convincing.

EVIDENTLY Sally was furnished with bits of,
German intelligence information. When the
Foggia airfields in Italy were first captured by
the Allies Sally greeted her "old friends" of the
umpty-umpth unit, citing their specific locations

On Party Influence . . .
To the Editor:
M1R. Freudenheim seems a trifle perturbed in
that the leadership which is presently guid-
ing the destinies of the two major political
parties in this nation has degenerated. He fears
that such leadership will eventually lead to their
demises. I should like to ask, a bit naively, "Is
that bad?" It has always seemed to me in my
observations of political action, that party toy-
tlay, partisan and sectional politicking has only
resulted in the clouding of issues and the hinder-
ing of actions designed to produce results.
hand-in-hand wit party action go log-roll-
ing and political favors that benefit no one but
the politician. The stronger the party is, the
more abuses it can perpetrate in securing
benefits for its members, and the less it must
worry about pleasing the voter.
IT IS not only possible, but probably that men
can be elected to office not on the basis of
party affiliation, but on personal merits. Cer-
tainly a better caliber of official would be ob-
tained. Also it would tend to erase the evils of
machines and the sectional feuds that have so
long plagued this country's government. And if
each office-seeker stood on his own feet instead
of riding on the party bandwagon a lot of the
voter a~pathy would disappear.

To the Editor:
WISH to voice an objection to the dissections
that appeared in the Michigan Daily of
March 2, 1946. I have no time to run around
looking for scissors, cutting out these pieces of
anatomy and looking for paste (of which I found
none, causing me extreme frustration), and es-
pecially putting it all together. If this is a form
of advertising, it is unfair to the busy, industri-
ous students of the University of Michigan, for
it arouses their curiosity so that they neglect
their studies, in order to remedy the disjointed
condition of these women.
Leave us have no more of this merciless dis-

To the Editor:
"ATTENDANCE at the .University of Michigan
is a privilege and not a right."
This is quoted from the University of Mich-
igan Official Publication of July 3, 1945. It
would be difficult to find more fitting words for
the general attitude of certain University offices,
long noted for their inefficiency as well as for
their inadequacy in student and faculty rela-
For years, students on this campus have
found it a hardship to deal with particular
offices most intimately connected with student
affairs-because members of the staff do not
consider themselves obligated to make the
student feel comfortable, wanted, or important
in the University scheme of things. A few
offices, as a result of this attitude, seem to
occupy the position of being an end in them-
CONTROVERSY about the worth of Art Tat-
um's highly specialized piano playing has
been to jazz Aficionados what Hamlet's madness
is to Shakespeareans: opinions, to phrase it gen-
tly, vary. If there is one pertinent fact about it
all, it is that no one yet has learned to leave him
strictly alone. You either like him or you don't.
The point is raised here as a preface to some
remarks about his new album, a four record re-
lease by ARA. The same deftness, brilliance and
flash that make him liked are here, along with
the somewhat pyrotechnic style and Wilson-like

phrasing the others deride. There is, however,
one new thing this time, and it is fine.
The new touch referred to is his left-hand
work, a series of chords and modulations he
used sparingly before. Ile apparently has it
under control now, and when he turns it
loose on sides like "Runnin' Wild" and "Poor
Butterfly," they sound as if they've never been
played better. My guess is that, hot or cold,
you'll find it hard to get along without him,
and you shouldn't even try.
JUST IN PASSING: Another piano album, the
Decca "Boogie-Woogie," is in circulation
again for anyone who missed it the first time
around; the passing of time hasn't hurt the Pete
Johnson sides, or Crosby's "Gin Mill Blues," at
all. Overlooked for reviewing in the St. Patrick's
Day column were a pair of Irish ballad albums
by Victor and Decca. I liked the former, with
Dennis Day, the best, but that's probably be-
cause he sings "The Rose of Tralee" in it.

selves, with the student merely a fly in the
ointment of their regular daily office routine,
rather than being a means to the end of edu-
cation for the student, which, supposedly, is
the purpose of the University-even though it
considers that education a privilege.
T'S a particularly unhappy situation when a
student must feel ill-at-ease when entering
an office created for his business -ill-at-ease
in the presence of staff employees with too much
power and responibility for the position they
occupy, or too little social sense for the part they
have in student relations. Such matters as
living accommodations should not be vested
solely in the hands of one individual, for this
important part of student life requires careful,
capable, and polite consideration. In these
crowded, rushed times students should not leave
the University offices either vaguely dissatis-
fied with the reults of transactions there or
actually antagonized by curtness or rudeness on
the part of office staff members.
Such offices should be staffed by people
capable of dealing pleasantly with prospective
students, capable of creating and maintaining
an impression de;erving of a University of
high standing.
SIDE BY SIDE in this institution exist offices
whose student relations differ radically in
tone and level of pleasantness merely because
of differences in the attitude toward student
srovice on I icpart of high ranking staff mem-

Little, brown and Company, 1946. 351 pages.
AILTHBOUGIT Mr. Waugh obviously intends that
it should, the story of a charming, sensitive
dipsomaniac, one Lord Sebastian Marchmain,
and his beautiful self-centered sister Julia
cannot realize intensely a conflict between re-
ligion and materialism. The only excuse for the
otherwise disjointed narrative in Brideshead Re-
visited is, however, the to-be-or-not-to-be Cath-
olicism of the various members of the elegant
English Marchmain family.
The story is told in a series of flashbacks by
a middle-aged major, Charles Ryder, whose
personal satisfaction in life has come from
intimacy with two Marchmains. He arrives
with his men at a new training center, and
discovers it is Brideshead, country home of the
Marchmain family. His* memories on that first
day of his return provide the stuff of the book.
He is the friend of Sebastian's happiest years,
those in college. Later, he is the lover and
proposed husband of Julia. In these roles, he
sees the two Catholics sin, repent, and finally
affirm their faith. While there is some at-
tempt on Mr. Waugh's part t blend the two
stories, it is my opinion that he might better
have concentrated on one to make his point
more forcefully. There is, further, too little
isolation of the problem to achieve intensity.
Life for Mr. Waugh has far too much beauty in
it to concentrate solely on the religious exper-
ience, and he does not resist the temptation
to put it in his story.
JUDGING the book solely on the basis of its
success with the religious theme is, however,
failing to find the chief source of pleasure. It
is this very enjoyment of life filling the pages
that arouses delight in the reading. He skill-
fully satirizes the "society" of England. He
shows nuances of personality in conversation,
and the characters are at times marvellously
alive. A leisurely reading of the book reveals
his rich enjoyment of friendship, books, pictures
and fine wine.
You will not go to Brideshead Revisited for an
exciting book or for an exceptionally good novel,
notwithstanding the fine reputation of the
author. You will find, however, a fine, full-
bodied flavor and a slow-moving charm which
is worthy of his talents.

T HE relation of atomic energy to
the life of man on this earth is
problem one and the spiritual future
of civilization depends upon its solu-
tion. A bill in committee of the Sen-
ate, as amended by our senior Sen-
ator from Michigan, empowers the
military to halt scientists at any
time and, under the fear, guess or
guise of defending any remote polit-
ical sector of the nation or its de-
pendencies, to take control of re-
search. As the climax to several
months of American uncertainty, it
has almost paralyzed the United Na-
tions Security Council.
Granted that power to direct the
use of atomic energy in bombs con-
stitutes a major discovery in the
history of science, the very fact
that top physical scientists with
our leading social scientists are
now socially alert is a far greater
achievement. Natural scientists
are no longer neutral. They are
dynamic. They care. They have
accepted responsibility. For the
first time since 'the eleventh cen-
tury the three elements essential
to speedy social transformation
are present in one group in these
top scientists,-(1) Techniques pe-
culiar to our epoch, (2) Inter-
national cooperation and loyalty,
and (3) Ethical sensitivity and in-
sight is fused into immediate re-
sponsibility to act.
EVEN THOUGH we grant that
Britain and Russia have human-
ity confused in a war of nerves, and
that our Congressmen are impressed
with the need of cajoling citizens
into willingness to create an ade-
quate police force for the United
Nations Organization, for us as cit-
izens to let this new potential bles-
sing get into the control of the mil-
itary in a time of peace is to turn
traitor and shoot in the back those
brave meen who have .lust brought
the combat phase of this transform-
ation era to a successful conclusion.
If you will reread the Atlantic Char-
ter or the initial articles of the
U.N.O. you will stand anew in the
presence of the objectives for which
we were willing to send our men and
women into war. Two new results
for peace are ours: (1) Ability to
direct the atomic energy released,
and (2) Moral alertness of our sci-
The impotence which a mere re-
ligious educator feels in the pres-
ence of these potentialities is at
once one of the paradoxes and
major blessings of our era. We of
the formal phases of religion,
somehow have been so busy patch-
ing old wine skins called ecclesiast-
ical structure that we have on
hand no new wineskins to contain
or make use of the new creative
life which physical scientists now
give to society. Present day proph-
ets appear in white laboratory
smocks, not in long black robes of
the middle ages. Jesus may be
chiding us with "Oh ye of little
faith." If you students would have
a part in the reconstruction being
announced, cut across Colleges and
Departments. Young philosophers
should also get into biology, phys-
ics and chemistry, and every young
science major should learn a
theory of values, social philosophy,
social psychology and political sys-
tems. Cancel those thought pat-
terns which wall religion off from
science or separate the divine
from the human. Seek the inten-
tion of God in the outlook of the
U.N.O. in 1946 as well as in the
Church of 50 A.D.
Now that will not be total religion,
for religion always must involve both
the will of God absorbing the total
interest of man as well as the sacri-
ficial love of man reaching up to at-
tain, if possible, God's grace. But
here is a good place to get ready for
such Gethsemane as may emerge
from this present world wide effort
to find security by means of an im-
mature, uncertain, , but promising
International Organization.
