Veterans' Loans
ing of "frauds on veterans" by loan sharks
directs our attention to the often-misunderstood
loan provisions of the GI Bill of Rights. The GI
Bill, with its remarkably generous provisions for
veterans who want to go to school, -pays scant
hed to those who want to borrow money but
lack a sound risk basis for doing so. Unable to
secure loans through legitimate channels, many
veterans have turned to usurious money lenders,
if we judge correctly the Attorney General's
While a justice department invesigation of
high-interest loans is certainly to be com-
mended, the root of the trouble is more diffi-
cult to dig out. The real difficulty may stem
from a general misconception on the part of
veterans that a provision of the GI Bill en-
titles them to a loan. This is not the case. Yet
a great many veterans plan on a loan in map-
ping out their future. When, in- applying for a
loan, veterans find banks and the Veterans
Administratiqn very tough-cInded about ex-
tending aid, loans at high interest seem the
only alternative to completely forgetting their
A clarification of the government's function
in GI loans seems to be in order. Veterans
should realize that the matter of borrowing mo-
ney is entirely one of private negotiations be-
tween veteran and lender. The government's chief
concern in the transaction is to make sure the
veteran has enough honorable service to qualify
for a loan. If the veteran can convince the bank-
er he is a deserving case, the government will
become a co-maker on the loan to the maxinum
extent of $4,000 and will pay the first year's in-
terest on the guaranteed portion of the loan.
Perhaps a general realization of the govern-
ment's limited role in loan-making will temper
the ambition of veterans who lack the financial
background to obtain a loan through dependable
banks. This seems to be a better plan than taking
on a load of debt which may be a permanent

11WO "itinerant" women seemingly found the
Law School attractive last week-so attrac-
tive that they decided to rest along their jour-
ney in the basement corridor between the Li-
brary and Hutchins Hall.
At 9 a.m. one morning a building attorney tug-
ged at one of the law professor's coat sleeves in-
forming him that there "are a couple of women
asleep out there."
The law professor went down and looked.
The two women, their traveling packs on the
floor, were peacefully asleep on a couple of

It's a time-honored practice.
At noon, the law professor braced himself. This
sort of thing ought not to continue in Law
He awakened one of the women who assured

him in very genteel terms that they would be on
their way in a short time.
At 4 p.m., the women were still sleeping in the
Law School.
At 4:15 they were gone.
We don't think it means anything.
Re Compounded Indignity . ..
WE are in complete agreement with James
Land, who wrote a Letter to the Editor re-
cently complaining of lack of courtesy in cer-
tain University offices.
Add to his remarks the following: men and
women students, whether they be 18-year old
freshmen or 25-year old veterans, are invariably
denoted as "boys and girls."
The secretary of a University administra-
tor particularly needles us. You have to get by
her before you can see him. She picks up the
phone and announces you as follows: "Dr.
there's a BOY here to see you."

TheFacts. of Price Conto

WE have had earnest warnings that if Congress
fails to renew price control (or if it renews
it with crippling amendments) we shall all suf-
fer because we shall have to pay more for food,
clothes, rent. That is true enough; yet the fact
that we might have to pay 35 cents for an ice-
cream soda, or $20 for a hat, is only one aspect of
inflation. The truth is that Congress is playing
with more than one fire; let us look at some of
the other potential blazes.
One effect of Congressional dawdling on
price control, already observable, is that we
cannot fulfill our commitments for foreign re-
lief. It has just been reported that our major
meat packers have been able to buy fewer ani-
mals than at any time in a generation, since
the strike ended. We cannot set aside lard for
export if hogs don't come to market; and we
cannot set aside grain for famine relief if far-
mers keep it to feed animals which they are
holding off the market in the expectation that
price control will go bust. a
The administration is reported to have set
May 1st as the deadline for Congressional re-
newal of the price control act; but even that
means we shall be unable to fill our quotas for
wheat exports during the next six weeks (the
most critical period, tag end of winter); primary
producers will wait until it is certain that price
control will be renewed before they will sell free-
ly; and it is as true as true can be that each day
of delay on renewing price control means an
avoidable additional day of starvation some-
where in the world.
"ECOND, we are in sonic danger of losing the
export markets to which we look forward, in
part, for our postwar prosperity. Mr. Bernard
Baruch warned us solemnly, in his recent re-
issue of his famous First . World War report,
"American Industry in the War," that a postwar
price rise, sufficient to make it hard for other
countries to buy our goods, constitutes a major
postwar economic dan'ger, and could cost us
markets forever. But our Congressmen, who so
often flop on their faces before mention of the
great name of Baruch in other connections, af-
fect not to hear him at all in this field.
It should be noted that there Is no price
control issue in other countries, such as Cana-
da and Britain, which look forward seriously
to export trade; and in Canada, at least, offi-
cials have the engaging habit of boarding up a
shop or store which violates price ceilings, ani
ordering the sheriff to sell it out.
THIRD, Congressional bungling of the price is-
sue may provoke a domestic crisis of confi-
dence, such as that of 1932, which put the Repub-
lican party out of power. One would not recom-
mend that the Republicans depend too heavily
on a "swing of the pendulum," such as might
cause the pullic, agitated by inflation, to turn
toward them and against the Democrats; a third-
party movement would be much more likely, or,
at the least, a vast increase in strikes and in in-
dependent political activity. The left has had no
very demanding domestic program these last few
years; inflation would give it one; and the effect


would be, not to reverse the trend which began in,
1932, but to renew it. Conservative opinion would
have about as much chance for success in an
inflation-ridden America as it has today in in-
flation-ridden Paris and Bucharest. Inflation
here means an end to conciliation, and the sharp-
est possible tightening of the right-left cleavage.
These are sober facts of life, worth the consid-
eration of the boys who are playing with fire;
and worth the consideration, also of some well-
meaning commentators who are warning. us in-
adequately that eggs might go up ten or twenty
cents if price control is botched. But a price rise
is only one of the effects of inflation; the trouble
is not only that eggs cost more, but that the very
nature of the world in which men try to buy
and sell eggs undergoes a sudden and irresistible

Famine Is Now
THE fact that British occupation officials are
preparing to use military force to halt hung-
er riots in their zone shows the necessity of. im-
mediate aid for the starving people of Europe.
Military force may succeed in temporarily
quelling the disturbances, but the underlying
cause is one which cannot be ignored: it is the
desire of human beings for survival.
According to Chester C. Davis, chairman of
President Truman's Famine Emergency Com-
mittee, in some countries of Europe, the aver-
age amount of food available per person is
down to one thousand calories a day. That
means a total daily ration of all kinds of food
equal to ten slices of bread. It is less than one
third the average food consumption in this
country today. (About 1,550 calories per day is
regarded as the minimum for the maintenance
of health.)
BRITISH AUTHORITIES in Germany are con-
sidering cutting rations to the starvation le-
vel of 750 calories-about the amount provided
by the Germans to the inmates of Belsen concen-
tration camp.
Herbert H. Lehman, retiring director of
UNRRA has said that the next harvest will not
end the emergency and has advocated a return
to food rationing in this country.
A great deal has been said about education
of the conquered peoples and the fostering of
democratic ideals. Hut democracy does not
flourish on empty stomachs. The future peace
of the world depends just as surely on feeding
the hungry people of the world, as it does on
the functioning of the UNO, the control of the
atomic bomb, or any proposed disarmament
Elementary human feeling should make us
want to act immediately. If voluntary conser-
vation of food will not provide enough food
quickly, rationing should be restored. Every day
which passes without action allows starvation
and disease to gain a stronger foothold.

To The Editor:
I regret that this letter must be
written concerning two unpleasant
subjects, but necessity seems to war-
rant it. The first matter is this. An
article appeared on your editorial
page of today's Daily <March 23)
signed by Louis R. Williams. I hap-
pen to know that this article was
written by Sidney M. Rogers, who,
being unwilling to sign his own namet
to it, signed mine. I want to make itt
quite clear that if any further com-t
ment is to be made about that letter,
you will use the name Sidney M.
Rogers, the real author of it.
The second matter concerns thee
distribution of The Dailys in the Eastc
Quadrangle. One of two conditionst
is prevailing. Either you are delib-
erately not sending enough papers tot
the Quad, to fill all subscriptions, orc
they are giving out papers here at1
the East Quadrangle to people whot
do not have subscriptions. I suggest
that you look into the matter, ande
take steps to correct it. Every day
there are some of us who have paid<
our. subscriptions, who -do not receivet
the Daily.

"The Veteran's Organization, on

tending the University, wishes to

tained efforts of the University ad-
ministration in our behalf.

planning that has so successfully
coped with unprecedented problems

To The Editor:
Havingenjoyed the fine hospitality
of several open houses and dances.
this last weekend, I have a serious
criticism to make of the conduct of
the University of Michigan men at
these social affairs. It is this: the
men are reluctant to tag in on the
girls, to request the pleasure of a
dance. Instead they stand around
in a ring round the outside and just
look on.
Now there would be a lot more fun
for all boys and girls concerned if
they would tag in and keep a dance
moving fast. This plan would make
it possible for many boys to meet
many girls, and more fine friendships
would develop.
I noticed in The Detroit Free
Press an account of a poll in which
University of Michigan women stu-
dents were in favor of more dances
in which the girls could tag the
boys. I am quite in favor of this.
Every open house should be organ-
ized so that girls would have the
privilege of asking whatever boys
they wish for a dance, for no other
reason than to contribute more to
the success of the affair.
In conclusion, I wish to express my
appreciation for the hospitality
shown by various organizations and
to ask that the students of the Uni-
versity of Michigan express them-
selves on this subject.
Yours for a more social and friend-
ly yet studious campus,

r HE State Department isn't saying
anything about it, but one im-
portant factor in the Spanish situa-
tion is the subsidizing of a new Fas-
cist underground in Italy.
What happened was that just be-
fore Mussolini was captured, many
leading Italian Fascists fled to Spain
and got protection from Franco.
Along with them went large amounts
of "flight capital." Among the re-
fugees was the family of Mussolini's
mistress, Claretta Petacci, which es-
caped to Barcelona by airplane just
