Churchill ...
FEARFULLY, a modifier used by the Associated
Press in describing Winston Churchill's mili-
tary alliance speech yesterday, so aptly applies
to the Tory's remarks that even politically con-
servative AP couldn't avoid it.
A "peril to Christian civilization," Chur-
chill pictured the Russians, calling for a mili-
tary Anglo-American alliance as a bulwark
behind which the English speaking peoples
can cower in readiness to hurl their atomic
bomb (which, he said, it would be "wrong
and imprudent" to entrust to the UNO)
against "Communist . . . fifth columns."
There's no doubt about it, the hero of Brit-
ain's battle for survival isn't sounding too
heroic these days. He's scared, and he doesn't
mind using every scare-word he can remem-
ber from thirty years of history in which
fear was the keynote and failure was the
Specifically, Churchill brought out the old
demand for 1) Joint use of the world naval and
air bases of Britain and the United States, and
2) Sharing of military secrets of the two nations
with interchange of military officers and train-,
ing. This means dividing the world into two
military blocs (Russians and anti-Russians).
Mr. Churchill's denunciation of "quavering bal-
ances of power" applies in the strongest manner
to his own proposals.
As a spokesman of the fast-dying British
IEmpire, Churchill is obviously turning to the
United States as the big-business imperialist's
last chance. If only he can lure brother interests
in this country into a tight Anglo-American
alliance, he may have the political power to
oppose Russian infringement on the Mediter-
ranean, Far Eastern and Middle Eastern states
which have so long been dominated by Europe's
In the chaos that followed the war, Britain,
the United States, and Russia enjoyed compara-
tively similar prestige positions in the eyes of
the world. All three had successfully saved us
from fascist slavery. Incident to this triumph,
there was a great deal of hope among the con-
qjuered peoples-piped in principally via Allied
propaganda facilities; undoubtedly this hope
played an important part in our victories. At
least it can be said that the conquered peoples
considered themselves on the Allied side. This
hope was based on fundamental promises and
impliedpromises of freedom and security for the
World. After victory, Britain (and to some extent
the United States) played down their promises,
while Russia continued to emphasize them.
Today, Russia is the nation to which the peo-
ples of the world are turning for their hopes.
rt is typical of the more short-sighted British
solutions for salvaging their prestige and mar-
kets, that Churchill is ready even now to aban-
don promises for threats, exchanging fear for
hope as the motive he'll offer the world for stick-
ing with the old system (capitalism and democ-
racy). Perhaps "blind" should replace the term
"short-sighted" above.
The great leader Churchill would be re-
membered today with shame had he emulat-
ed Petain's policy of fearful aquiesence in
Britain's dark hour. Today, the dark hour
is that of the world and fear is not the an-
swer. American-British cooperation is laud-
able of course, but it should be only a par-
ticipating unit of world cooperation.

Well Done .*.
UNITED STATES justice has at length settled
its claims against the Anaconda Wire and
Cable Company, charged early in the war with
irregularities in the manufacture of war goods.
Anaconda has paid to the government
$1,626,000 after a three-year legal contest.

THE business of explaining how it happens that
a newspaper has a new column without which
said newspaper has gotten along very well to
date; well, it's not pleasant. We know you won't
hold it against us if we just don't bother, if we
just tell you what's it all about.
Too long the Daily has suffered from the extro-
version of one or two columnists whose range
and variety were insufficient, to provide even one
semester's reader interest. This column is an
attempt to bring together the talents of the
entire Daily staff. This is the place for every-
thing that doesn't quite seem to belong any
other place. We deal in fantasy, anecdote, par-
tial comment, and the whole complex variety of
subjects foisted upon us by the mild maelstrom
Byvr} neOut?
WASHINGTON-White House reports that
President Truman plans to fire his old friend
Jimmy Byrnes as Secretary of State and replace
him with Gen. George Marshall have sent shivers
of apprehension up and down the spinal columns
of Latin American diplomats.
They recall that it was General Marshall who
during the early days of the war wrote the most
high-handed directives regarding Latin Amer-
ican sovereignty since Frank B. Kellogg sent the
Marines to Nicaragua.
Ignoring the fact that Brazil and Ecuador both
were anxious to cooperate in the war and be-
came our Allies, Marshall demanded that certain
bases be seized by the United States immedi-
ately. The fact that these were sovereign na-
tions and had something to say about their own
territory apparently made no difference to the
general. Only the restraining hand of Sumner
Welles, then Under Secretary of State, prevented
Toward the end of the war, also, General Mar-
shall was held responsible for drafting a direc-
tive, later issued under Roosevelt's name, order-
ing the State Department to keep permanent
peacetime military bases in Brazil and Ecuador.
The directive gave the State Department no
alternative in the matter. It was commanded
to secure these bases-regardless of the wishes
of the Latin American countries whose soil was
This brusque attitude regarding peacetime
bases is one reason for the serious cooling off of
Pan-American goodwill. Various Latin Amer-
ican countries were glad to give us bases during
the war as an emergency measure, but they do
not want American troops permanently on their
(Note-The proposed appointment of Gen-
eral Marshall as Secretary of State appears
to be part of the growing trend toward mili-
tarizing the United States Diplomatic Serv-
ice. Truman has now appointed Gen. Bedell
Smith as Ambassador to Russia, Adm. Alan
Kirk as Ambassador to Belgium, Gen. John
Hilldring as Assistant Secretary of State,
Gen. Frank Hines as Ambassador to Panama,
with General Marshall already serving as
Ambassador to China.)
Atomic Dictators
It's hard to believe, but Army brass hats are
blocking the return to the USA of Dr. Nils Bohr,
Danish Nobel prize winner and the father of
modern atomic science.
They don't want it known, but the Army has
also turned thumbs down on a visit by Jolliot
Curie, Madame Curie's son, another atomic
scientist, on the grounds that they don't want
American scientists talking to foreign scientists.
Amazing thing is that the Army takes this
view despite the fact that the atomic bomb
discovery was made possible only by the
contributions of Italian, American, Ger-
man, Polish and Czech scientists. Without
their collaboration, its discovery would have
been impossible.
However, the Army is now waging an intensive
campaign to pass the fascist May-Johnson bill,
which would permit the Army to go into any
University and remove any professor, would
even set up military courts in peacetime with
precedence over civilian courts to put civilians
in jail. Hence, the present Army scare propa-

Ganda regarding consultation between scientists.
What Price Navy Awards ?
Here is one reason why Naval Reserves aren't
jumping with alacrity to sign up again in Secre-
tary Forrestal's Navy.
It escaped unnoticed, but one officer charged
with negligence in the sinking of the USS In-
dianapolis actually was awarded the Legion of,
Furthermore, he got this honor, one of the
highest in the Navy, after the sinking of the
Indianapolis and at a time when the Navy should
have kjnown he had been negligent. The officer
in question is Capt. A. N. Granum, who has the
dubious distinction of holding the Legion of
Merit and also an official reprimand, both cover-
ing dut yat the same time and place.
Perhaps the secret of his Legion of Merit is
that Granum is an Annapolis graduate.
Anyway, when the Indianapolis was overdue
at Leyte, Captain Granum had its route, speed
and estimated time of arrival. A magnetized

that is a college campls. If any of you find a two-
headed milk bottle on your doorstep this fine
morning this is the place to inform the world
of your discovery.
Editorial Wisdom .
"There's nothing like a good, invigorating
editorial," said our little four-year-old friend
John as he picked up The Other Local Paper.
"Shall I read the one entitled 'Stockings
Appear Hard to Get for Ann Arbor Working
Girls,' or 'No Rest for the Weary When the
Walkie-Talkie Arrives?'"
"Read the one about the walkie-talkie,"
we told John. (No four-year-old friend of
ours is going to read about stockings or work-
ing girls.).
John read, "It requires patience and forti-
tude in order to stock up on stockings."
"By God, they've a point," John offered.
Patient Philanthropist
Out of the maze of crowded classrooms and
record enrollment at The Great American Univer-
sity, Spring-Semester-1946-style, comes this
tale .. .
Virginia G. Baker, Spec., is a student in Music
Appreciation. To get into her class she had to
agree to stand up or carry her own chair. The
latter seemed the less obnoxious, so each day she
comes to Music Appreciation with a canvas camp-
ing stool, one with yellow and blue stripes for
the Alma Mater touch.
After completion of the course, Mrs. Baker says
she is going to donate the camping stool to the
University. It is going to have an engraved
bronze plate on it. It will be called, oddly
enough, the Virginia G. Baker Chair of Music
Sunday Buses .. .
Lest it seem that we ignore the burning
issues of the time; lest we give you the im-
pression that we interest ourselves not in
contemporary political phenomena; lest, in
short, you discover prematurely what dunder-
heads we are, we wish to speak seriously for
the length of a sentence. Why don't busses
run in Ann Arbor Sunday-it is certainly not
because of lack of potential business.
Support Gleeber eek' . .
This may be the wrong time of the year for it,
but we're in favor of Mike Church's recent sug-
gestion "that there ought to be a National Book
Return Week."
Church, on the Extension Service Staff, a very
literate bunch themselves), suggested Book Re-
turn Week a couple of nights ago after discover-
ing that unreturned books threatened the unity
of the American Home.
He would have returnees drop borrowed books
into a mailbox and returned to their rightful
owner. The postoffice department would co-
operate, shipping all books free. Postmaster
Robert Hannigan has been informed of the plan.
(A reply from the Federal Official is awaited.)
We think that the postoffice could handle the
matter in much the same way as it does hotel
keys or pocket sized license plates.
After the plan has been operative, the post-
office department might well make some pro-
vision for doing away with those annoying water
and whiskey glass rings usually appearing on
books that have been returned. That is, the few
that are returned.
Only question arising in our minds is why stop
with National Book Return Week?
Why not have a "National Gleeber Week," a
"National Caedmion Week," or a "National Zeit-
langer Week"-all of these have been neglected
and could be worked into first-class Causes.
Don't get us wrong-we're all for National
Book Return Week-National Gleeber Week, and,
oh well.

board, showing the location of all vessels and
corrected every eight hours, showed that the In-
dianapolis was long overdue. A written report
covering a 24-hour period from midnight to
midnight, showing the Indianapolis was overdue,
was shown Captain Granum.

It was then his duty to organize a search, using
all available ships and planes. This was not
Two months later, in October 1945, the Navy
awarded Captain Granum the Legion of Merit
with a glowing citation which read:
"For exceptionally meritorious conduct in the
performance of outstanding service . . . for the
protection of all shipping . . . the successful
accomplishment of these tasks required skillful
employment of ships and planes and exact know-
ledge of the locations of all shipping . . . by his
devition to duty and through professional know-
ledge, he achieved outstanding success. His con-
duct was at all times in keeping with the highest
traditions of the United States naval service."
The Navy now states that in view of the official
reprimand given Granum, his Legion of Merit
will be withdrawn. However, a lot of reserve
officers and men who won their decorations the
hard way are now wondering whether all An-
napolis grads get Legions of Merit so easily.
