To the Editor,
In the June issue of INSIGHT there appeared
an article on racial discrimination on campus.
All of the cases described were well known to
the Inter-Racial Association. But questions un-
doubtedly arose: What was being done to com-
bat discrimination on the Campus? Were we
allowing an undemocratie minority t.o wage a
successful racial campaign9 What was the IRA
doing ?
Three months ago in these columns we out-
lined the program of the IRA and issued a .all
for all those interested to help combat racial
and religious discrimination. The response was
immediate and 16 testing groups went into
action. Over 40 restaurants were tested in three
L. by a 'solid' Negro couple.
2. by a mixed' group (ecmposed of Negro
and white students)
3. by a mixed eouple (one Negro and one
white student)
The committee was concerned with any form
of discrimination outward or subtle. The work
was done secretly to determine with a reasonable
degree of fairness the actual policies of the
managements involved.
Of the restaurants tested, three were found to
practice some form of discrimination. Members
of the executive committee of the IRA ap-
proached the management of the concern and

China's Civil War
soon come to a China torn with civil strife,
the political situation there is one of extreme
tension, highly precarious for the Nationalist
Although a '15-day truce in the fighting be-
tweer. the Nationalists and the Communists in
the northeast has been signed in order to open
the way for negotiations toward a permanent
peace, it is not likely that the Communists will
easily relinquish their hold on the Manchurian
area. Even though the phenomenal recapture of
Changchun, the Manchurian capital, from Com-
munist forces by the Nationalists in a four day
march may have been part of a preliminary
truce agreement between the two, the fact re-
mains that 40,000 Communist troops exerted an
all-out effort in the stormy four-day battle for
the control of the city which was gained April 18.
About three weeks ago the United States
Army Headquarters at Peiping put out a dis-
patch concerning the Communist troops and
alleged Japanese leadership operating from
Korea behind their strength. The Army is
much concerned over the fact that thousands
of Japs awaiting repatriation have been de-
serting over to the Chinese Communist forces.
It has come to be a fairly evident fact that
while the Chinese people can endure hard-
ships and privations for long periods, they have
no genius for military strategy. Yet the forces
which have been opposing the Nationalist
troops in North China have shown a know-
ledge of tactics of a remarkable quality. Ac-
cording to this dispatch, the only explanation
is that high-ranking Japanese officers have
been directing every move.
affair is that while all American communi-
cations concerning the fighting, communications
which are fed wholesale to the peoples of the
western hemisphere, refer to the opposition as
"Communists," on-the-spot observers state that
the Chinese Nationalists seem to believe that
much of the fighting is being done by Chinese
bandits masquerading as Communists to cover
up their raids. This belief has much to back it
up, since the nature of politics in North China
is still in that stage where shooting incidents are
considered as just part of the game-not at all
It is reported that the common belief of every-
one who says anything about the situation, off
the record of course, is that the Communists
will control all of the Peiping-Tienstsin-Chin-
wangtao area within four months of this date.
Along Victoria Road, the main drag of Tientsin's
foreign city, daily there appears a greater num-
ber of pill boxes and roadblocks on every street
corner. Our First Marine Division is in this
area; the 94th Army is guarding all entrances
to the city and setting up stockades at all van-
tage points, rather obviously in anticipation of
some large scale fighting in the near future.
Since some 20,000 Chinese Communist troops
have reportedly been seen in the plains around
Chinwangtao within the past three weeks it is
not unbelievable that Chinese blood will con-
tinue to fertilize the land despite the truce plans

The Crack-up, F. Scott Fitzgerald, edited
by Edmund Wilson, New Directions, 347 pages.
THE CRACK-UP was published last year, but
reasons for this belated consideration are
more than adequate. The book illustrates neatly
the superior publishing done by New Direc-
tions, serves as an object lesson in the difficult
business of editing all such volumes, and more
importantly is a fine introduction to the life,
times, and writing of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
There is also the very probable chance that it
has something to do with the current Fitzgerald
First about New Directions. Any careful per-
usal of last year's publishers' lists is ample evi-
dence that this firm is America's most de-
pendable support for advanced and experi-
mental writing. Reprints like Franz Kafka's
Amerika, Evelyn Waugh's Handful of Dust, and
Djuna Barnes' Nightwood, added to publication
of The Crack-Up and much of Henry Miller's
recent work are without further listing recog-
nition of a singular combination of publishing
imagination and taste.
The collection itself is worth real attention.
Wilson, whose recent scathing attack on Somer-
set Maugham further established his position
as America's most discerning popular critic, has,
it seems to me, arranged his material just about
perfectly. The opening section of letters and mis-
cellaneous memoirs is an ideal atmospheric
backdrop for the trio of dramatically compact
essays which form the title-piece. College liter-
ary aspirations, the kind of sudden, inundating
success peculiar to the Twenties, the long anti-
climax of travel and leisure are at once prepara-
tion and contrast for his big smash.
Glenway Wescott describes the Fitzgerald
analysis of the crack-up as self-autopsy, an
innocent indictment of the lopsided native
idealism of the time, but to get its real quality
of quiet desperation better turn to Fitzgerald
himself. As stylistically effortless as usual,
he is more sharply and surely introspective,
more insistent on his own conclusions. It is
that most peculiar of confessions of literary
bankruptcy, a demonstration that there are
newer, greater assets upon which the so-called
bankrupt may draw.
Though the essays furnish most of the book's
significance, Fitzgerald's notes are often percep-
tive and almost always display his casual sure-
ness of phrase, and the examining essays of two
highly different contemporary writers, Wescott
and John Dos Passos furnish excellent evaluation.
If the volume produces the interest it should,
recent reprints of The Great Gatsby are avail-
able both in pocket and regular editions. I fur-
ther recommend his unfinished fragment, The
Last Tycoon, but it may be more difficult to ob-

heard the usual argnun t : "We love the consti-
tution, America and all people, but business is
business and my customlers complain." Some-
times the teelique of overcharging Negroes to
discourage their patronage was employed; oc-
casionally tactiecs of delay were used. The com-
mittee argued against this on material grounds:

plus a vast nurnber of the student body could
wage a canpaign against the restaurants utiiz-
ing picketing and adverse publicity.
The enanasers after carefully weighing their
forma of 'Americanisuij' against our determin-
ation decided that their business would be
less successful if they persisted in discrimina-
tory practices. They were warned, however,
that any further report of discrimination in
their establishments would be acted upon-
no questions asked. To date no reports have
been filed by individuals or by the testing
committees on these restaurants. Having
therefore received no report to the contrary,
the IRA can with authority state that not one
campus restaurant practices discrimination.
We hope that in the near future it can be said
that no restaurant in Ann Arbor gives differ-
ential treatment to its patrons because of
their color or religion.
There are other active and latent forms of
discrimination on the campus that the IRA has
uncovered. Private residences and league houses
have openly denied admission to Negro and Jew-
ish students, accepting all others. The Golfside
Riding Stables (with which the University .as
a contract for its riding classes) has denied some
Negro students permission to ride outside the
class period, not imposing this can on other
The Greek Letter Societies organized for social
purposes openly practice discrimination along
religious and color lines with Jewish, Gentile and
Negro students obviously segregated. This form
of discrimination must be condemned, even
though fraternities claim that within their seg-
regatory system democracy lives, pointing to the
democratic IFC as proof, an IFC so democratic
that it refuses to recognize colored fraternities.
The discriminatory system is complete to the
top, irregardless of Greek interpretation (may
Platokand Aristotle excuse the loose use of
The IRA has supported the FEPC and other
progressive legislation, especially bills that
would outlaw poll taxes, lynching, etc. In con-
junction with MYDA, IRA recently held a
meeting at which people protested KKK action
in Columbia, Tenn., contributing $138 to the
.victims' .cause. We believe that the student
body is vitally concerned about discrimination
and will continue to back the IRA in. its never-
ending fight. However, the; most effective
action can be taken on a local scale and needs
active student participation.
The IRA will function throughout the sum-
mer, into the fall and after. To those who
haven't joined, let me say this:
In the IRA you will meet people of different
religious and racial heritages who all agree on
the basic worthiness of the individual regardless
of his background. The IRA has given Michigan
students a chance to broaden their viewpoints,
increase their understanding and make friends
of individuals because they like them and their
ideals, regardless of their racial, cultural or re-
ligious heritages.

Student Accounts: Your attentionE
is called to the following rules pass-
ed by the Regents at their meeting
of February 28, 1936:
"Students shall pay all accounts

last day of classes each semester orT
Summer Session. Student loans
which are not paid or renewed are
subject to this regulation; however,
sermon by Pope Pius advising the
faithful to vote for Christian candi-
dates in Italy and France, gave the
secret away. All can now understand
that the attitude of the Church in
Europe has been one of the deciding
factors in Europe's troubled affairs
since VJ Day. The elections are
rather certain to restore sanity. Now
that the Associated Press men have
discovered their unseen partner we
may begin to get the facts on the
first day instead of a week or a
month later. You see the Church and
the Press have a common enemy,
Soviet Russia. The Church fears
Russia because Soviet leaders have
openly hated religion and persecuted
the Church for a quarter of a cen-
tury. The Press fears Soviet Russia
because their reporterial industry is
curtailed. There is no way to get to
the people on the inside of the closely
managed U.S.S.R. Church and Press
have had a holiday at the expense
of UN and the peace of mankind. The
holiday, is over.
Why does religion reach into poli-
tics? There are definite reasons.
Faith and practice are inseparable.
Every Religion has its idea of God
and how to worship. Sacred days,
given saints, proper ceremony, meth-
ods of devotion, periods of prayer,
and repetition of a creed are the
Faith side of it. But this is only
half of any religion. The other half
is behavior. Just as a lover, on the
human scene, desires to be in the
presence of his beloved, is willing to
behave as the beloved wishes, to eat
the food the beloved approves, and
to-perform carefully the duties which
the beloved may prescribe of, is cer-
tain to enjoy,- so the worshipper
invariably endeavors to discover what
his God desires, which duties will
please Him and what food will meet
His approval. This leads to Practice.
dhists with one idea of God and
prescribed ways to worship Him also
through its priests, attempts to guide
the behavior of all the adherents.
If you are a friend, you say the wise
priests teach their people. If you are
an enemy, you state that those mys-
tical priests dominate the thinking of
subjects. One of the chief reasons
we Americans so completely fail to
understand our postwar world, is our
indifference to religion. In our west-
ern isolation we have contained our
faith in one compartment and our
practice in another. The priest at the
altar takes care of your obligations to
God, appearing daily to light your

candles, while you go your way t9
determine your own practice. We in-
fer that Hindus, Mohammedans,
Buddhists, Jewish, Orthodox, Catho-
lics, and Lutherans fail, as we dis-
senters and secularists fail, to unite
faith and practice. Many are sur-
prised when the Pope teaches his
worshippers the political view he be-
lieves will please the Deity, but the
Pope, trained as a Poland secretary
for the Vatican, was never in better
form, and never more true to his
historic office than when he told
French and Italian peasants how God
would have them vote. As we go on
with our eyes open into a more com-
pact One World we may expect that,
because universal education is slow
coming, religious orders for many
centuries will continue around the
world as mass educational agencies.

R-I t Race
IT HASN'T been made public yet, but the
Federal Reserve Bank Board has just re-
ceived a document loaded with economic dyna-
mite. In the face of official Washington's loud
proclamations of prosperity to come, this docu-
ment is considered by government economists to
be most sobering.
The document is amn intensive study of the in-
comes and savings of American citizens since
1941, made for the Federal Reserve Board by
the crack survey unit of the Bureau of Agricul-
tural Economics. The findings-based upon over
3,000 exhaustive interviews in 35 states-indicate
that although the war years saw a distinct
spreading of income, half the families of the
nation still hold less than 4 per cent of the
savings of American families.
The top 10 per cent of American families
hold 60 per cent of the savings-in bonds, se-
curities, bank deposits, etc., with the very
top 30 per cent holding 87 per cent.
Government economics interpret this as mean-
ing that only a relatively small portion of Ameri-
ca's huge savings backlog is going to be spent
on radios, refrigerators, and the many other
durable goods unavailable during the war. The
top income groups are those with comparatively
less need for these goods. The great demand is
concentrated in the lower income groups, which,
according to the survey, have little savings to
draw upon.
