Paris Failure
Storm Warning
HOPES for a secure peace in Europe have been
dashed again with Secretary of State Byrnes'
proposal that the Conference of Foreign Minis-
ters at Paris recognize its failure and refer the
unsolved problem of writing peace treaties to a
21-nation peace conference June 15.
If the four great powers-the United States,
Russia, Britain and France cannot agree on
terms for Europe's peace treaties, there is little
reaspn to believe that 21 nations can arrive at
an amicable decision.
The foreign ministers at Paris have deadlocked
on three major issues:
1. Secretary Byrnes' proposed Big Four treaty
to guarantee disarmament and demiltarization
of Germany for 25 years was interpreted by
Russia as "a paper screen to conceal a retreat"
from American obligations in Europe; by France,
as;a substitute for her demand that the indus-
trial Ruhr and Saar be detached from Germany.
Britain tacitly approved the proposal.
2. Russia backed Yugoslavia's claim to Trieste.
The United States, Britain and France ntrged
a plan which would leave Trieste in Italian ter-
ritory and divide the Istrian peninsula and other
contested provinces between Italy and Yugo-
slavia.
3. Russia requested a trusteeship in Tripoli-
tania and Britain proposed that Somoliland -
now divided among Britain, France and Italy-
be placed solely under British trusteeship.
Thus, as at other conferences, the issues
which divide the world's powers are based on
imperialism, suspicion and fear. The Paris
conference, like those at San Francisco, Lon-
don and New York, has proved to be an arena
for the expression of rival ideologies and na-
tional interests. Spheres of influence are again
to be the bulwark of world peace.
Last semester, Prof. Leslie White predicted
"bigger and better Pearl Harbors in the future."
Harlow Heneman, then a member of the polit-
ical science faculty, warned that the United
Nations could not succeed if the great powers
could not agree on occupation problems in Ger-
many.
The events at Paris this week have added new
meaning to these predictions.

Correction On
Roman Analogy
YESTERDAY, A DETROIT newspaper colum-
nist drew a superficial analogy between Rom-
an civilization and the United States. It was his
contention that unless the "people arouse them-
selves to fight for their liberties" by curbing such
threats to our peace as the miners' Mr. Lewis,
"we (will) drift into anarchy out of which can
only come despotism." Included in his parallel
is the rather confused idea that the United States

Congress is somehow like the Roman Senate:
an administrative-legislative body which as such
risks losing power to a despot if and when it
fails to govern adequately.
Obviously, the U.S. Congress is in no sense
an administrative body. Primary responsibility
for the current economic quagmire lies with the
President and his 'Cabinet who have failed to
anticipate and effectively prevent strikes. The
now-prevalent theory that Congressional legis-
lation is the answer to our economic problems
is both false and dangerous. The supposedly
stringent war-time Smith-Connally anti-strike
law which was of little or no effect is evidence
of this.
IN SO FAR as it is a tremendously complex
economic and political unit, managed by a
centralized government, the United States may

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
Starving Pawtis
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
BY THE END of last summer it was perfectly
clear that drought had struck at most of the
food producing areas of the world, outside of
this hemisphere, and that a famine was inevit-
able. It was also clear that we in the United
States were having a splendid year of near-record
crops; and that the famine in the outside world
made every kernel of our grain doubly, triply
and quadruply precious; food to be saved, and
cherished, and well used. The one man in the
whole world who should have been most aware
of the total situation was Mr. Clinton P. Ander-
son, our Secretary of Agriculture. He had his
world-wide fpod reports to go by; if those were
not enough he had only to look into his Bible
and read again about Joseph and the lean years,
But Mr. Anderson seems to have read some
National Association of Manufacturers' litera-
ture about the evils of controls instead; for he
picked a date one month after the fact of the
drought disaster was established to lift almost
all controls from the American food market.
THAT STARTED US on our winter of waste,
during the course of which at least 100,000,-
000 more bushels of wheat than usual, ten out of
every hundred, were fed unnecessarily to live-
stock. During this debauch, Mr. Anderson has re-
mained resolutely cptihistic about the 'world's
food prospects, as, of course, he has had to be to
defend his odd position; he has kept a hopeful
smile frozen on his face, while the world disaster
has turned slowly into a world rout.
As recently as Monday of this week Mr. An-
derson told reporters in Washington, gathered
to witness some puffed-up ceremony involving
a farmer who gave a bit of money to famine re-
lief, that he expected our wheat-export goals
for May and June, plus our deficit, to be met,
The next day the facts struck Washington
head-on; we had shipped only 100,000 tons of
wheat during the first week of May, as against
250,000 tons allocated; we are 881,000 tons
short for the year. And so on Tuesday, twenty-
four hours after his cheery little tweet-tweet of
Monday, Mr. Anderson was compelled to ad-
mit that the situation was "extremely grave."
AND, apparently Mr. Anderson has led Mr. Tru-
man into exactly the same kind of brisk
somersaulting. Our President told us on April
12 that the world food situation was improving.
Six days later, on April 18, he, too, switched, and
declared that the picture was even "worse than it
had been painted." These flips and flops are full
of meaning. Those who oppose rationing, and con-
trols, find it necessary to be optimistic from time
to time, to uphold themselves; then, as the full
weight of the crisis descends on them, and they
feel the bitter need of frightening the people
into eating less, or something of the sort, they
switch to alarm; the result is a curious succes-
sion of poses, hopeful and dejected, gay and
gloomy, flip and also flop; until the hope and the
gloom come to seem only satiric footnotes to
each other.
Into this picture there has floated the figure
of HerLert Hoover, himself a devoted enemy of
rationing, and controls, and of the use of state
power. Mr. Hcover announced, some weeks ago,
that the crisis would be a short one, lasting
three or four months. Then, instead of asking
for emergency government action, to save food,
which surely we could have stood for so short
a time, Mr. hoover set off on a trip around the
world to get the facts. He has used almost the
whole period of the crisis, as defined by him-
self, to study the crisis. He has worked hard,
he has taxed himself; yet the chief result will
be that there will be no government action.
And as we study the strange picture, it is im-
possible to shake off the conclusion that the
people of the world are, to a certain extent, the
victims of an American ideological squabble; that
the starving have been made pawns in a game
of ideas; and that the same, sudden reactionary
offensive which has muddled our own reconver-
sion has laid its long shadow across the world
stage, blotting out light abroad as it is trying so
hard to do at home,

Mine Accidts
Just Grievance
WASHINGTON-Tragedy of the coal strike sit-
uation is that public reaction against John
L. Lewis has diverted attention away from one
very just grievance on the part of the miners-
mine accidents.
Lumbering, coal and metal mining cost more
lives per working hour than any other industries
in the nation. According to the National Safety
Council there are 50.5 disabling injuries for every
1,000,000 man-hours in the coal and metal
mines, compared to 14.46 disabling injuries per
1,000,000 man-hours of work in the entire nation.
As late as 1941, Congress passed the National
Coal Mine Inspection Act empowering annual
inspection of mines by the U.S. Bureau of Mines.
However, the coal operators' lobby in Congress
succeeded in winning its battle against com-
pulsion. In other words, the operators don't have
to carry out Bureau of Mines recommendations.
The Bureau can only advise.
Larger mines, however, usually do carry out
these recommendations, and it is the small mines
where most accidents occur.

A YEAR AGO the war in Europe ended. Rela-
tions among the Big Three were smooth and
efficient .,..even the professional isolationists
realized that the unitel fforts of England, Rus-
ia and the Unied States were the major factor
which had won victory over Germany.
Today, one year later, the battlefields are a
memory only, and that unity which was so essen-
tial then is thought to be a luxury now, one of
those little niceties which would, perhaps, make
dinner more refined and pleasant. No longer are
the politicians who guide our policies greatly
concerned with the desires and needs of other
nations. That desperate battle to ion out dif-
ferences, to agi among ourselves, has yielded
its place to h e accusations and the self-right-
eous :lgal of a :: I :.bilie- rirning to busi-
ness as usir, I
The attack on Russia's policy in Iran was as
savage as the assault on Cisterna. The dispute
had lasted two weeks before the Chicago Sun
managed to dig out the facts and decide that
Russia's policy in Iran was actually justified.
There is a rekrettable change when our gov-
ernment no longer investigates the background
and the fats of the Iranian dispute in order
to present them to the people of the United
States, but so important a function is left to a
Chicago newspaper. The soldiers who saw the
Army nmovies about our allies are now daily
trsted to an anti-Russian. or anti-British
speechb y one of our leading diplomats.
Althogh the air gnaws heavy with denuncia-
ions and threats, there is ot one fact to be
found . . . the citizen pauses in limbo, puzzled
and confused, because he doesn't have the
facts which would enable him to decide.
SECRETARY OF STATE BYRNES has recom-
mended that the present Paris Conference of
Foreign Ministers dissolve now, because he has
despaired of the Big Four ever reaching agree-
ment on the subject of the European peace
treaties. There are gestures of defeat as little
men try to do big jobs, and the spirit of optimism
and compromise which marked the war-time
conferences is changing to a reckless disregard
for the views of other states.
While we snub Russia and denounce Eng-
land, there is somehow a great caution and
fellow-feeling in our attitude toward our for-
mer enemies. After ten years in which the
people of the world have learned the facts
about Franco Spain, we hesitate to break off
relations with his government because we
don't know the facts. We are deeply con-
cerned about free elections in the defeated
countries, even though every such election
in Germany, Japan, and that undefeated
enemy Argentina . . . witnesses a return of
the war-makers to office.
PRESIDENT ,TRUMAN seents to regret uni-
lateral actions by the other major nations,
but he has no hesitation in asking Congress for
permission to arm every country in the Western
Hemisphere. There is no diplomatic veil over
this threat to Europe . . . the New World is pre-
paring to walk with a swagger, a gun on each
hip and a bared knife between its teeth
Every affirmation of faith in the United Na-
tions is matched by an act which will destroy
the United Nations. In such an atmosphere of
suspicion, threats and frenzied rearmament, the
ambiguous propaganda for a "World Govern-
ment" seems strangely mis-placed and danger-
ous. There is small point in this frenzied clamor
for world justice until that Big Three unity
which won the war is also mobilized to win the
peace. No country of the Big Three is now will-
ing to put its eggs in the UN basket . . . Great
Britain is drawing tighter the strings around
the Empire; the United States is preparing to
arm every country in the Americas; Russia is
resentful of the fact that it has become a perma-
nent minority on the Security Council. Even
in those cases where the world knows that
Russia is right, as she was right about Spain,

she is nevertheless in the minority, so that the
actual isSue seems to be not Spain but Russia.
The Big Three are today separated by issues,
not slogans. England and the United States are
fighting over Far Eastern markets, Middle East-
ern markets .. . the International Aviation Con-
ference was broken up by a disagreement be-
tween England and the United States. Any
chatter about world government which does not
propose a solution to those concrete issues now
preventing Big Three unity is talk in the ab-
stract. It is only when discussion leaves the
abstract and finds the facts that men can agree.

Good Neighbors
IT IS a historical irony that the Good Neighbor
policy of President Roosevelt, the great ideal-
ist, should have been applied in Latin America
with such a high degree of pure expediency; and
that only now, after the death of the man who
inspired the Latin American masses with hope
for the Four Freedoms, is our practice of sup-
porting dictatorships and oligarchies in Latin-
America if they cooperated against the Axis -
being changed to an encouragement of democ-
racy.

Attacks Arab 'Leaders'
IN 1919, at Versailles Emir
Feisal in asking in behalf of his+
father, King Hussein, for independ-
ence for the Arab countries, expressly
excluded Palestine which "for its
universal character he left on one
side for the mutual consideration of
all parties interested." This state-
ment was made by the Emir after
the publication of an agreement be-
tween Dr. Weizman, President of the
Zionist organization and himself,
reached a month earlier, and in ac-
cordance with which the Emir recog-
nized the right of the Jews to im-
migrate into, and develop Palestine,
provided Arab independence were
achieved in the Arab lands outside
of Palestine. The Arabs outside of
the Holy Land have achieved that.
independence!
Now for some statistics: During
three thousand years of recorded
history, Palestine has been under
Arab rule only 437 years (from
643 A.D., the time of the Arab
conquest, to 1071, the time of the
Tu'kish conquest). A small number
of Arabs came in after 643 A.D., but
75 per cent of the present day Arab
population are themselves immi-
grants or descendants of persons
who immigrated to Palestine dur-
ing the last hundred years-most-
ly after Jewish immigration be-
gan to develop the country. In
figures: the Arab population has
grown from 664,000 in 1922, to 1,-
175,000 in 1944. It is indeed un-
fortunate for the Arabs that Pal-
estine does not belong to the Arabs,
but to a few Arabs, wealthy pro-
prietors who fear the introduction
of the labor unions, and universal
education by the Jews.
If the Arabs loved their own people
half as much as they hate the Jews,
they would reforest the land they so
eagerly claim; they would reclaim
the deserts, as the Jews are doing;
they would raise the moral and phy-
sical standards of living of a people
who have never known the meaning
of the word democracy. Or perhaps
that is just what the Arab princes
do not want; perhaps that is just
why they resent and fear so much
the spreading of Jewish influence
in the Near East.

Crime Is Crime
To The .Editor:
W HILEAPPRECIATING the mag-
nanimous spirit of Miss Larsen's
editorial, and of Sergeant Abbott's
telegram which prompted it, I must
protest that we owe a duty to truth
as well as to charity. I don't think it
matters very much whether or not we
hang Tojo-or any of the Nazi leaders,
for thatmatter-but that they deserve
hanging seems to me beyond dispute.
It is not a question of revenge or ani-
mosity, but of truth and justice. To
say "Tojo's only crime seems to be
that of losing the war" simply slides
dishonestly over the question as to
who began the war. To say that we
mustn't mention Pearl Harbor be-
cause the Japanese might say "re-
member Nagasaki" is like saying "Jim
my and Johhny both hit each other"
without any reference to the fact that
Jimmy began the fight by hitting
Johnny first. Pearl Harbor was not
just one of the cities, on either side,
bombed from the air during a war;
it was a city attacked in time of peace.
When a footpad attacks a peaceful
citizen, do we say "Let us both agree
to forget this unfortunate brawl;
this is a time to plan for tomorrow
and not fume about yesterday?" I
cannot see that it makes any differ-
ence that the peaceful citizens hap-
pened to be named Czechoslovakia,
Poland, Norway, Belgium, Holland,
Greece, Manchuria, China, the Phil-
ippines, Ethiopia and so on instead
of Jones or Smith, and that the foot-
pads happen to be named Hitler,
Mussolini and Tojo instead of Lefty'

Louie or Gyp the Blood.

Famine Program
To The Editor:
FAMINE is threatening one-fourth
of the earth's population-some
500,000,000 people. We shouldn't be
startled by this figure for nu-
trition experts have placed 2,200
calories per day as the human need,
one-fourth of the world subsists on
less; some on as little as 940 calories
per day. We, ourselves, are consum-
ing between 3,200 and 4,000 calories
each day-the only country in the
world with such a high general
calorie ration.
Wouldn't it prove easy to give up
some of the excessities in our eating
habits, byneating less and wasting
nothing. In fact, one slice of bread
given up at each meal by the people
of the U.S. would be sufficient to
mitigate the famine. Yet, we, you and
I, find no one to ask or demand that
these slight services be made. The

government, the people, and this Uni-
versity, have shown little initiative
in instituting some relief plan. How-
ever, we can not become cynical be-
cause of the inadequacies evidenced
by those who govern us. Here we
have the occasion to show that the
minds and thoughts of the students
are conscious of and able to meet this
particular problem. We can make the
University of Michigan Famine Pro-
gram sound the rallying call for all
other schools, even perhaps for the

dents can take the lead in great issues.I
The University of Michgan Famine
Committee is endeavoring to unify
this campus: to present a tangible
program in which all students and
faculty members can participate.
The three tentative aims of the
conurittee have already been enthus-
iastically endorsed by representatives
of the Co-ops, dormitories, guilds,
veterans, etc. They are:
1. The elimination of food wast-
age.
2. A famine day every week, on
Tuesday, on which our diets will
be restricted to 1500 calories.
3. The elimination of bread from
our diet for one meal each day.
The Famine Committe realizes that
these plans, or variations of them
can not be effective on campus with-
out the support of the student body.

To The Editor:
THE RECENT ARTICLE captione
"Don't Leave The Philippine
Now," written by Tom Walsh i
gummed up with vindictive generali[
zation which is unfairly directer
against Manuel Roxas, the newl3
elected President of the Philippine'
Commonwealth government and tr
the country he.represents. The writ-
er in a wift and sententious dicho
tomy called Roxas collaborator
which I assume, he could not logi
cally prove on reliable ground.
The word "collaborator" has been
frequently abused in this theater of
operation. To my comprehension
the word is synonymous with trai-
tor. In the Philippines there were
some collaborators but they were
not traitors. The term is used with
flexibility. The men who worked
with the Japs are called collabora-
tors, whether he has a reason for
doing it or not. As the Japs took
over the Philippines, it was the poli-
cy of the conquerors to use the cap-
tives to work. Government men
were re-assigned to their old jobs.
Disobedience of this order means
reprisals. Anyone who went through
the mill as a prisoner, knew what it
means to be conquered. Roxas may
have worked, or may have been
claimed by the Japs to have worked
with them, but he worked not as a
traitor but for the purpose of peace
and'order.
The real collaborators were mad
known to us during the struggle. Now
they are liquidated by the Philippine
government. The whereabouts o
Roxas during the war was not re-
vealed to us. The Japs would hav
made a big issue out of it if he hat
collaborated actively with them.
General MacArthur met Roxas and
pronounced him on the clear side
Chic Parsons, of the Navy suicid
squad, had gotten much war infor-
mation from Roxas. Colonel Cruz o
the Philippine Army had establishe
connections with Roxas during th
occupation. In the recent politica
election 80 per cent of the member
of the Philippine Army voted fo'
Roxas. The people recognized hi
innocence and elected him to office
Obviously, the word collaborator a
the writer has tried to convey is r
misnomer.
The one faction that is agains
Roxas is the Hukbalahap-a com-

munist group of the Karl Marx-typ
who are ruling some sectors of the
Philippines with force. During the
war this group was called the Anti.
Japanese army who not only weeder
out Japanese but Filipinos as well.
Mr. Walsh said that Roxas has
not advanced a reform for the com-
mon man, because the president is
himself a wealthy man. Roxas who
is a product of the American school
believes in the right of the common
man. His past records point con-
clusively that his economy was
largely devoted to the uplift of
the poor.
The writer said further that the
Philippines is headed toward a civil
war. The early history of America in
the years of its infancy was not a
clean slate. She witnessed civil strifes,
politicking, and state squabbles.
The Independence of the Philip-
pines is a settled issue. Congress has
made up their mind. Neither you nor
I can change it. The American people
has consented it and it is forthcom-
ing.
Right after July 4, 1946 there are
manfgood things that will ensue.
The American-Filipino relation will
be more close, for it is going to be a
cooperative living of small and big
