Verein Justified
THE RECENT FLURRY of criticism levelled
at the Deutscher Verein in the "Letters to
the Editor" column has an emotional tone which
is rendered much less effective by an objective
look at the facts of the case.
The alleged "impassioned appeal" for relief
for the "starving German children" consisted
of reading aloud a front page editorial on fa-
mine relief, which appeared in The Daily April
25. In no place in the editorial was a specific
plea made for German relief.
A collection of $1.65 was taken in a canister
provided by the American Friends relief pro-
gram, marked particularly for German relief,
and this collection was duly sent to the Qua-
kers. However, this took place at the meeting be-
fore the one at which the "impassioned appeal"
was made, and the canister for German relief
was not even in the room at the latter meeting.
The American Friends Society is carrying on
their relief work in Germany, as well as in the
other countries of Europe, with the express con-
sent of the American government. Our govern-
ment itself is spending $200,000,000 annually
for the reconstruction of Germany.
As for the statements that any veteran who has
seen Germany would find the Verein's action an
"insult to the campus," it may be pointed out
that the Verein includes a good many veterans
who have seen combat service in Germany and
elsewhere. We may also mention that the club
has contributed liberally from its treasury for
the cause of general European relief.
The president of the Deutscher Verein, Jim
Trautwein, says, "The Verein has been un-
willing from the first to make an issue of this
matter. It arose, not from any policy of the
club, but from a mis-statement of that policy
by a girl who, according to the secretary's
records, is not even a member. That subse-
quent critics should have based their comments
on this letter, making no effort on their own
part to verify its contents, is a fact that speaks
for itself."
The Verein's critics might do well to remem-
ber the many Protestant Christians under Pastor
Niemoller who suffered in concentration camps
during the Nazi regime, the millions of Roman
Catholic supporters of such men as the Cardi-
nal Archbishops of Berlin, Cologne and Munich
and the Cardinal Bishop of Munster, who died
a month after his elevation to the cardinalate
due to the-strain undergone during the Nazi rule,
and the milions of Jews still in Germany who
are starving just as badly as the rest. Is it sug-
gested that we should starve these people?

We cannot reconstruct Europe without re-
constructing every part of Europe, Germany
included. If we allow the German children to
starve now, then, and only then, will we be per-
mitting the development of "potential storm-
troopers." If we permit the cycle of hatred to
continue, as it did after the first World War.
with the Americans hating the Germans and
engendering German hatred for Americans in
return, the result will be a third war far more
disastrous- than the last. The cycle of hatred
must be broken, here and only here lies the hope
for peace to come.

Possible Bases for Hope

inspired the best men of the nineteenth cen-
tury, there is, I still think, every ground for

Prerequisite to Progress
To the Editor:
MOST PEOPLE seem unable to consider Russia
and her role in the post-war world in a calm
and rational manner. To fear Russia, even to
hate Russia, seems to be the fashionable attitude
these days. The press and State Department
are doing little to alleviate the general hysteria
and emotionalism, and in many cases succeed
only in aggravating the situation.
In times of semi-crisis, it appears no less than
logical that understanding, not prejudice can
lead us to the safest and wisest solution of our
difficulties. Wild raving, of the kind offered by
the changeable Winston Churchill and unen-
lightened criticism of American foreign policy
as printed in the Hearst journals and other re-
actionary publications must be taken with a
grain of salt if we are to gain an insight to the
real issues behind the headlines.
As soon as we realize that the Russians are
keen enough to know a square deal when they
see one and stubborn enough to fight for a
square deal until they get one, we can expect
to make some progress on the international scene.
-Dorothy E. Kelmenson
Blow to Minorities
To the Editor:
MASS ARRESTS, by the Federal Government,
of conscientious objectors currently on
work strike in their detention camps, provides a
foretaste of what can be expected if the pro-
posed "draft strikers" legislation is approved.
It seems incredible that American citizens,
guilty of no crime, could have been confined for
three or four years in forced labor camps, under
threat of imprisonment. Certainly no strikers
ever made more reasonable demands; pay for
work performed, compensation for disabilities
incurred, and provision for support of their
These men are legally civilians, and the un-
popularity of their views should not keep any-
one from realizing that their imprisonment for
striking against the government will be a blow
to the rights of every labor and minority group
in the country.
-Ann Chapman R. N.
Re Strike-Draft
To the Editor:
INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, today, should have
the attention of every American who is in-
terested in achieving and maintaining indus-
trial peace. A temporary solution has been pre-
sented by our Chief Executive, President Tru-
man. This solution is an attempt to meet but
not solve the problem of workers striking against
the government. According to Section 7, of the
Strike-Control Bill placed before Congress on
May 25, the President may induct into the Ar-
my of the United States all workers who are on
strike and disobey his order to return to work.
Such authority is narrowed down to include
drafting of "any person who was employed in the
affected plants, mines or facilities at the date
the United States took possession thereof, in-
cluding oficers and executives of the labor or-
ganizations representing the employes."
Let us examine the significance of such a move.
Merely by placing workers in the armed forces
the President must believe that because of his
position as Commander in Chief, the worker now
converted to a soldier will obey orders handed
down by him. To those of you who have served
in the armed forces such an adherence to military
authority based upon this supposition must
seem folly. According to Training Manuals issued
by the War Department Officers and Non-Com-
missioned officers are expected to instill in their
men a desire to voluntarily subject their will
to the will of the leader. In the achievement of
this objective, it is expected that military orders
will be executed--and without hesitation. Is such
a reaction possible when workers who strike
against government-seized plants are drafted
and made to return to work? I think not. Mass
disobedience of 'military' orders would result
In the end such a proposal would make the
Armed Forces a penal institution.
It is significant that the House of Repre-
sentatives passed this bill on May 25 embodying
such a provision 306 to 13; it is doubly important

to note that the Senate eliminated the draft-
workers provision on May 29 by a vote of 70 to 13.
If 319 Congressmen and Senators agreed on the
drafting of workers who defy a government re-
turn to work order, look for this same proposal-
and beware of it--popping up again the next time
the nation gets excited over strikes affecting the
public interest.

EDIO.SNOTE: Veterans Administrator R. S.
Wadrop told The Daily that vets must sign a state-
ment as to whether or not they will work full time
before they become eligible for subsistence. Those
who work full time are ineligible; those who falsi-
fy the statement are libel to prosecution. Vetssare
responsible for notifying the VA of changes in plans.
30 hours a week is the maximum set up by the Ann
Arbor office, Waldrop said. Except in special in-
stances as determined by the VA, more than 30
hours a week is considered full-time employment.
W HEN T HIS COLUMN last appeared, there
was an attempt to discuss the reasons for
the threatened maritime strike in terms of the
demands of the workers. But no discussion can
claim to be complete if it stops at this point.
Many people differ about the justice of the mari-
time strike, because they have a more basic
disagreement about the role and value of the
labor movement in this country.
The limits of ambition in this column must
be to introduce some information which is not
generally available, concerning the role which
various unions actually play. For instance, there
have been many charges about racial discrimi-
nation by certain unions. Doubtless in some
instances these charges are true, and the condi-
tion should be corrected by the immediate en-
actment of the bill for a permanent FEPC. But
the seven CIO maritime unions which now threa-
ten to strike have an emphatic policy for racial
equality, and few groups in the country follow
a non-discriminatory policy quite so vigorously
as these unions.
For instance, in August of 1945 the American-
Japanese began to return to the West Coast.
They had been excluded from their homes for
nearly four years. They were strangers to the
areas in which they had been born and had lived.
Two of these Japanese obtained a job working
in a warehouse in Southern California. A section
of Local 6 of the Longshoremen was bargaining
agent for that particular warehouse. This sec-
tion of the union refused to accept the two
newly employed Japanese-Americans as mem-
bers, largely on the anti-Japanese charges made
by their local president and business agent.
The International headquarters of the un-
ion conducted a prompt investigation of the
situation, and within a week the two Japan-
ese were working in the warehouse and that
entire section of Local 6 had been suspended
from the union. One month later the section
was re-admitted, having fired the president
and business agent who had caused the trouble.
The union newspaper gave wide publicity to,
this incident, and emphasized that similar
acts of racial discrimination would not be
In March. 1946 a dispatcher at the National
Maritime union hiring hall in Dallas, Texas sent
a Negro to a ship which was due to sail for
Jacksonville, Florida and then to New York. The
other members of the crew would not let the
Negro board the ship, and he was not aboard
when it sailed. The union promptly put him on
a train bound for Jacksonville. When the ship
docked at Jacksonville, the entire crew was
removed and a new crew, INCLUDING THE NE-
GRO, was assigned to the ship,
The NMJ attitude toward discrimination is
clearly expressed in one of their publications
in January, 1946. It says: "The NMU has
pioneered in the fight against discrimination.
It has shown the country that white and Ne-
gro seamen can live together, eat together,
and work together in harmony. NMU mem-
hers have tried it and it works."
Mere words don't mean much. This union
statement doesn't mean much by itself. But
when that statement is translated into action,
so that it becomes a part of the daily lives of
men . . . the words have acquired a new and
living meaning.
Throughout our society today the problem of

racial discrimination is discussed. But most
groups lack courage in the face of a concrete
problem. Stores say that they would like to hire
Negroes or Jewish people, but their customers
wouldn't like it. Universities teach the equality
of races in their sociology classes, and then
set up discriminatory quota systems against the
members of minority groups.
The CIO unions are one of the few groups in
America which have translated their words into
action. Minorities are inclining more and more
toward cooperation with the unions as a method
of solving their problems. The main source of
strength in the fight for FEPC has been the un-
ion movement. This is one of the reasons why
many Americans are deeply concerned about
the future strength of the union movement.
These people consider the unions to be the ma-
jor force for democracy in this country. To many
unions, as to these seamen, democracy has be-
come more than a slogan. To the seamen, demo-
cracy is a process.
