Limited Discussion
To the Editor:
THE OTHER NIGHT, I attended a University
sponsored lecture at Lane Hall dealing with
the present political situation of the Dutch East
Indies. Before presenting the speaker, the chair-
man announc.ed that he hoped the group would
ask such pertinent questions as "What are the
Dutch doing in Indonesia anyway?" Upon the
conclusion of the lecture, questions were put to
the speaker concerning future Dutch control
under the commonwealth system, what benefits
the Indonesians had received under Dutch rule,
why the Dutch refused to allow. the United Na-
tions to investigate conditions in the Indies, and
so on.
As the chairman drew the meeting to a close,
he tossed a verbal bombshell at his audience.
He stated that some of the views expressed
were definitely un-American, that the United
States State Department followed Dutch pol-
icy to a much greater extent than we thought.
Ie then added that it was fortunate that there
were no F.B.I. agents present at the discussion.
I believe this action of the chairman was en-
tirely unwarranted. His implied denial of free-
dom of speech smacked of totalitarianism. A
perfectly enjoyable and informative discusssion
was spoiled by the coercive and intimidating atti-
tude of the chairman, whom I later discovered
to be a professor of the University of Michigan.
I shall hesitate to attend any future discus-
sions of any sort at the University, when one is
made to feel afraid to speak freely, as happened
the other night.

Doc's Advice Questioned

Irnr Viewpoints

W HEN FOUR of the keenest news analysts in
the country get together to discuss "What
Are the Real Issues Behind the Russian-Iranian
Dispute?" one can expect shrewd insight into a
highly important problem. William L. Shirer,
Edgar Mowrer, Max Lefner and Louis Fischer
fulfilled every possible expectation when they
reviewed the situation Thursday night on the
Town Meeting of the Air. Their .views on the
problem are all-inclusive and valuable enough
to pass on in summary.
In the opening talk, Mr. Shirer explained the
dispute as a manifestation of basic struggles
between Russian and British imperialism and the
Russian ideology and western democracy. This
is not a new analysis, but in the light of Mr.
Shirer's further views it assumes new importance.
In Mr. Shirer's opinion, the western democ-
racies are using the United Nations to promote
their struggle against Russia. In this struggle,
the western powers can always be sure of
majority support - in voting. But, as he
pointed out, this does not necessarily represent
a majority of power. We can continue in this
vein to see the reason for Russia's insistence
on the veto power in the Security Council setup
-power which she did not use in the Iranian
dispute. We can also see that the faith and
support in U.N. which Russia has expressed
involves great moral courage on her part.
M1R. SHIRER also emphasized the greatly arti-
ficial nature of the Iranian dispute. He
pointed out that a recent New York Times article
speculated that the United States and other
western powers may have purposely fanned the
flames of the dispute, which was nearing peace-
ful settlement anyhow, in order to arouse anti-
Russian feelings and to strengthen our position
in the U.N. When the conservative Times and
the liberal Mr. Shirer agree on such a possibility,
it is not to be lightly overlooked.
As Mr. Mowrer sees the situation, it is an
expression of Soviet imperialism. Since this
imperialism is not justified in his opinion, by
economic or political security needs, it can be
explained only by Russia's "hunger for power"
and a return by the Communist regime to the
expansionist policies of the Czar. He said that
the result of this insatiable craving is that
"the Soviet Union is trying to build up its
powers not only against its enemies, but also
against its friends and allies." This is a severe
"1 AM NEITHER pro-Russian nor anti-Russian,
but pro-peace and pro-U.N." On that sharp
keynote, Mr. Lerner led into his somewhat eva-
sive interpretation of the dispute. (For Lerner
fans: He made up for it by giving specific evi-
dence and views on the matter during the discus-_
sion and question-answer periods later in the
program.) His chief points were that the prob-
lem is one of justice and peace - whether the
great powers can adjust to each other's differ-
ences. He suggested a special U.N. conference on
oil resources.
Mr. Fischer, who spent 14 years in Russia after
the Soviet government was set up, offered the
most unique and significant interpretation of the
evening. As the last speaker, he brought the
talks to an effective climax. According to Mr.

Fischer, the real explanation of Russia's expan-
sionist moves is the Russian dictatorship and
tensions within the Soviet government and na-
tion which express themselves in agression
abroad. "Imperialism is the road to war," he
said. All imperialism!
Messers. Shirer, Mowrer, Lerner and Fischer
differed in their analyses; they argued strenu-
ously. But unanimity was complete on two points:
Imperialism must be eliminated and a unity of
cooperation and reconciliation must be estab-
lished in the U.N. if peace is to be "in our time"
and for all time.
-Mal Roemer
THE IDEA of a permanent library of American
folk music which has seized on so many
campuses has made itself felt even here. A
small, though exceedingly energetic, group of
admirers (American folk music admirers, that
is) on this campus have approached this writer
with their plan for such a collection, and a re-
quest for some consideration of it in this column.
The first point these balladomanes bring up
is the obvious entertainment value the songs
themselves have, apart from any more eso-
teric worth. After all, John Jacob Niles and
Richard Dyer-Bennett both played to full
houses here, and Burl Ives albums sell ex-
tremely well, and many people, we are led to
believe, take a great delight in listening to
the practically unintelligible Josh White and
Huddy Ledbetter. i
THE LYRICS, too might come in for some
exploration, they go on, perhaps along the
lines of the work now being done by the Harvard
and Texas faculties. Apparently, few of the
ballads or chanties or whatever it is that's sung
by these people, exist in any authentic or lasting
It is when these devotees come to the money
aspect of the whole program that they really
turn interesting to me. The way they plan to
meet the expenses for materials, artists and all,
is by a series of concerts, some jazz and some
straight American folk music. In other words,
they would have the men who are actually to
be recorded give a concert while they are here
in Ann Arbor, using the proceeds from this to
defray all the costs.
Also, they mention jazz concerts, given in
much the same manner as the Eddie Condon or
Duke Ellington ventures in New York, again for
the purpose of supporting this library. Well,
there is their plan, and there the matter rests.
Comment, it need hardly be added, is invited.
-Lex Walker

due respect to Doc Brace and his profession, I
feel nevertheless that the real truth should be-
come common knowledge.
'Trench mouth," or in scientific language, Vin-
cent's angina, is not communicable, and kissing,
the one common method of expressing one's feel-
ings will not spread the disease. Nor is it neces-
sary to boil the dishes which a patient with
Vincent's has used.
It is my suggestion then that the dancers en-
joying the strains of Bill Layton and his band,
and couples communing with Nature in the
Arboretum should put "Trench Mouth"ifar back
in their minds and enjoy themselves to the ut-

About Tennis Courts
Surprise! We aren't going to gripe about Paula
Brower and Templeton or student government.
But we have got a gripe, and it's one we hold in
common with many others. What has happened
to all of the tennis courts on campus? Of all the
courts scattered in various places, only four are
in fit condition to be played on. These are the
ones on Palmer Field and every day at every hour
there are at least ten persons to each court-all
very eager to whack a few tennis balls.
While the bickering over who is going to use
the court goes on, the clay courts there remained
locked and empty because the University hasn''
yet decided to roll them. These aren't the only
courts being allowed to go to pot; others are al-
ready in such a state that practically whole
wheat fields are growing where once tennis rack-
ets gave out with their lovely "pings." We've got
the courts. Why isn't something done about get-
ting them back in shape?

Greene. Viking Press, New York, 1946 reprint.
301 pages.
A BRAVE COWARD, the "whiskey priest," is
only one of many executed in the persecu-
tion of Catholicism in an obscure Mexican state.
The power and the glory of the Kingdom of
Heaven comes home to him, however, with the
intensity of the Mexican heat during his stand
against the attempted destruction of the Church
by the state. He is a weak man who through his
weakness comes to know what his religion means.
The contrast between himself as priest before
the persecution and himself as a fugitive priest
illegally continuing to administer the rites of
the church provides the contrast of false religion
and true religion. His tenacity in refusing to
surrender to the police, or go away entirely, as
all the other priests have done, reveals the power
of his faith.
The book is dramatically sound. Greene in-
troduces his main character only shortly before
the capture, and thus makes the reader feel the
pressure of the hunt immediately. He sets the
problem in the first chapter by letting the
reader see the priest through the eyes of a
derelict dentist. He closes the book with the
feeling of the dentist at seeing the execution
of a man he has seen but once. At intervals
throughout the story, he shows the priest
through the eyes of others who represent the
forces in conflict. The experiences of the
priest make him grow in understanding of the
people and of God. This growth is shown in
his thoughts. Although he gradually loses all
the symbols of his priestly office, his faith
clarifies in the crisis. Ile becomes the sign that
it is impossible to crush the spiritual force of
the church.
Perhaps the most effective quality of the book
is its ability to sustain the mood of despairing
desperation, with the atmosphere of unrelenting
heat, dirt, and decay. Greene can settle on small
details to show the singularly unappetizing qual-
ity of life among the Mexican poor. For example,
the Judas of the book is a half-caste whom
Greene shows to be disgusting by continual refer-
ence to his two yellow teeth, and his habit of
scratching his armpits. The weakest aspect of

style is Greene's tendency to explain what he has
made obvious in conversation, while his partic-
ular talent is his ability to show strong conflict
in a seeming nonentity, and in a situation ap-
parently empty of drama.

1IN 1920 while we were struggling to -
recover world confidence after a
devastating war, a learned man of
affairs, congratulating a young couple
upon the birth of a son, predicted
that twenty years hence that son
would graduate from the University
into a second world war. Today as
we enter Passover week with its Gol-
gotha, it might be well to ask our-
selves whether the seeds of peace or
of war are being sown.
In Asia, Christian England ise
baffled by Hindu-Islamic India. C
In China entrenched military
leadership with wealth is met by
an agrarian movement determin- s
ed to hold every inch they have C
gained by fighting Japan in the t
north. The British with oil con- t
cessions which enable them to sus-
tain their Empire and make the
Mediterranean an English lake, arc
halted indirectly by Russia asking
for similar concessions. Companies
from America, still pressing their
free enterprise to the point of in-
sult and the poisoning of public
opinion against the Soviets, play
the waiting game of getting con-
cesions and holding them while
our State Department must carry
the onus of every faulty diplomatic
step. In this situation, the Iran-
ians, that Persian people, descend-
ants of the renowned worshippers
of the Sun, look more like a lamb
who before her shearers is dumb,t
than like a people which had a
history and a culture a thousand
years B.C.
THE scholarly neighbor who con-
gratulated us in 1920 might tell
the war wives that those children ir
their arms will settle these oil di-
putes with B-29s and bombs in 196
unless the deep spirit of deliverane
kept alive among the Jews by Pass-
over sentiment and among the Chris-
tians by Good Friday can be movd
from personal sentiment to social
purpose, from purpose to social prac-
tice and advanced to governmental
habit on a world scale.
How well is religion teaching its
lessons? Here we are more than
3,000 years beyond Moses and hisI
codification. Yet the initial law,
"Thou shalt have no other God be-
fore me" has not yet been taken
seriously. Oil not goodness is God.
Atomic energy as military advant-
age, not productivity, is worshipped
by more nations than worship the
God whom Jesus addressed, pray-
ing: "Father, forgive them (my ex-
ecutioners) they know not what
they do."
EVEN our religion, fundamentally
a uniting factor, seems set tc
divide us. We all know that the viru
Anti-Semitism ate out the heart o
great Germany and cursed Italy, yet
in America, we Christians will go onc
way to worship while our Jewis
neighbors go another. The seasone
devotion, determined religious prac-
tice and loyal family life of the Jews
are not appreciated by the Chris-
tians, nor have we millions of Chris-
tians in any nation making a com-
munity wide celebration which an-
nually woos Christian youth to good-
will for our spiritual ancestors such
as Hosea, Amos and Jeremiah. If we
are not divided by the divergence of
Passover and Good Friday, we divide
our communities by being Catholics
and Protestants. Finally we are ad-
vised that in greater Detroit fully
1,200 self-ordained pastors, as part
of the desire to find salvation in
democratic fashion, are dissenting
from all ecclesiastical establishments
but seeking economic alliance by
means of America-First emphasis.
University students, your task is to
take over a humanity in whose spir-
itual dynamic and social structure
your parents have failed. Can you
make the fundamental needs of a
sacred solidarity, a unity, a must in
the life of nations, races and peoples
or reduce surface divergence to its
rightful secondary role? Can you

produce in Religion another United
Nations in which Hindu, Mohamme-
dan, Jew and Christian can estab-
lish a socially operative religion for
peace? To thrust our statesmen into
a United Nations dedicated to high
purpose is a step in the right direc-
tion; only if those statesmen can
rise to the stature of prophets, saints,
and saviors. To such a goal, every
University man, at Easter, might well
dedicate his soul.
