We were reading this to foryear-old-fiend

Latest gadget to show its head on a horizon

newspaper article informs us.
The story continues, "Suppose that you are
sitting with a group of friends over a quict
brew listening to an artistic rendition of 'Shoo

"A bunch of musical mavericks comes in,
little caring for the nuances of a hot lick, and
starts an argument," the story goes.
No matter how much table pounling goes on
the new juke box "blandly raises its voice to
the competing level."
Little caring for the nuances of a hot lick,
indeed. We sympathize with an innocent readl-
ing public subjected to that sort of thing.

is a blatant disregard of the right of free speech.

LaFollette Lecture Like Old one Week

ATTENDING the Hon. Philip F. La Follette's
lecture the other night was just about like
sitting in on a meeting of the Gopher Prairie
Booster's Club.
It was an encouraging speech-encouraging to
anyone who has lain awake nights for fear of
U. S. sovereignty, paced the floor over Russia's
rise to power, or had qualms over Oriental im-
perialism. Lay aside your worries, the audience
was told. America need not lose her self-confi-
dence. "Firm in the righteousness of her cause,
she can answer the challenge of tyranny. She's
got power. She's got resources. She's got brain
capacity. Look what she's been able to do thus
But to be a bit morose about the merry pros-
pects of the United States, let's take a look at
what the Hon. Philip H. La Follette says we have
Philippine Islands: We have followed the Gold-
en Rule. By undertaking a progressive policy in
the Islands and by not assuming "white supre-
macy," we have set an example for the whole
Orient. Largely by our influence, the "days of
imperial conquest in Asia are over."
"Over?" we ask. Then what are British troops
doing in Shanghai, in Hong Kong? Why is In-
dia not granted her independence? And, even
if there are better days to come, will they
dawn because of us? Were we such "angels of
freedom" when we stood by and allowed Mac-
Arthur to support the reactionary elements
while suppressing the liberal? How progres-
sive will we be if, when we grant the Philip-
pines independence, we do not also offer trad-
ing privileges to help them gain economic
footing? Are we now really concerned as we
stand by and see the Islands, politically cha-
otic and devastated, yet do little or nothing
to materially aid them? And have we set such
a shining example of racial tolerance, that we
should call ourselves an "influence" in tle
Asiatic awakening?
Japan: "There's no secret. We are build-
ing in Japan a dynamic organization of demo-
cratic force," La Follette says.
. ALL this by ourselves? This is factually in-
correct. True, it's the way we wanted it. Yet
here's the way it is. There is a council of four
powers; Russia, Great Britain, China and the
United States who are supposedly determining
policy for Japanese occupation. Even though the
linelight falls mostly on Gen. MacArthur, there
is no reason to assume that is is entirely a U. S.
And while we're on the subject of Japan,
are we certain that we are building such a "dy-
namie force?" Are the Zaibatsu as such dead?
Is the Emperor as such dead, or are we white-
washing the venerable old gentleman as just
a family mar, at heart as Life recently did?
Germany: We are co-governors with the Eur-
opean "Big Four", and no action may be taken
without unanimous consent. As a result the
"European situation is deteriorating every day."
B ECAUSE of the other three? We admit that
the German occupation has proven ineffi-

and political ideas. The United State p-
lary of one, the Soviet union of the other. ihe
conflict can be solved in an open market of
competition of ideas. And in such a market 'we
may be self-confident that we will win"
And to this are we to say "Oh, fine. lHooray
for La Follette and a pat on thek for his
grammirar?" No, we disaree h learrtly i .th s-ch
flagrant expression of chauvinism. We are not
especially elated at hearing thit the United
States is the greatest nation on earth, that she
is always right and that she will always wi
Such talk is nothing but good cover-up for
sheer isolationism. There are those who say
the United States should mind her own business
and there are those who say she should save
the world alone. Both amount to the same
thing-that we are great and so let the rest of
the world come to us. To the true internationalist
the problems of the Tahitians and the Moravians
are the problems of the world. But also, to the
true internationalist, the problems of the world
are reconciled by the world, not by the dictum
of one.

The ridicule the roofers of the University have
been subjected to, owing to a recent inquiry both
by your paper and Profesor Dean McLaughlin,
has prompted me to write this explanation; as
no one else connected with the University seems
to feel the necessity of an answer.
The tarring of the dome on the observatory
on Angell Hall was not done by employees of the
University, that have been doing the roofing
work. Instead it was done by a local roofing
company, of which the writer knows the name,
who upon contact would be in a better position
to explain how the dome became sealed shut with
asphalt to the extent that it was rendered unuse--

As Others . . .
We have in this country the peculiar idea that
in all the world only the Russians find our for-
eign policy and out stubborn control of the atom-
ic bomb in any way suspect. We have somehow
come to think of ourselves as the ultimate in
highinded and benevolent purpose.
It must, therefore, have cone as a shock to
e fw w read the following Reuter's
dispatch buried deep in last Thursday's news-
aper's: "The liiled States has always been
predatory in its development," said Sir Thomas
Blaney, former 'oniander-in-chief of Aus-
traian military forces. "War with her is un-
tinkable at the moment, but we should make
sure that we are building up a strong defense."
We may seem to ourselves Galahad in more or
less shining armor; foreign observers sometimes

WASHINGTON- It's no secret
that there's been considerable talk
among the brass hats in the Penta-
gon Building about war with Rus-
sia. Some of this comes from men
who honestly feel war is inevitable
and favor getting it over with right
now. Others chiefly favor a little war
talk because of its help in passing
military conscription.
However, there can be no doubt
about the views of the top military
man in the War Department-Gen.
Dwight Eisenhower.
Two or three weeks ago Eisenhow-
er was attending a Washington din-
ner party when people began to talk
about war with Russia. Irked by the
oanvrsation, he remarked that he{
was "amazed that so many people l
should suddenly be seriously consid-
ering the idea of war with Russia"
Then the Chief of Staff proceeded
to give a pointed lecture on the fool-
ishness of this war talk, which can
be briefly summarized as follows:
"People whTlo want war should only
think a few minutes about the sac-
rifice Russia has made in the past
five years--a toss of life and property
so large we cannot conceive of it. A
people who have suffered such a loss
will not turn tail before any military
force in the world today. But at the
same time they will not go out and
look for another war.
"And neither will we. This country
is no more anxious to go to war than
Russia. Our losses are great, and we
want no more. Certainly the Ameri-
can people do not want to get in-
volved in a war in which there can be
no end but the destruction of the
greater part of the world.
"Atom bombs or no atom bombs,"
the Chief of Staff continued, "war
still means knocking out the oppos-
ing armies and establishing control
over civilian populations. We saw
what happened to the finest armies
the world has ever seen. If we tried
to conquer Russia there's no telling
when we'd be able to establish our-
selves on Russian soil-but once we
did we'd be faced with years of slog-
ging through Siberia.
"We have nothing to gain to start
with," concluded Eisenhower, "and
would have nothing left when it is
A nti-IoiislIng Lobby
Most powerful lobby since the war
threw itself into the battle to defeat
the Wyatt housing program for vet-
erans. Every Congressman received
wires, phone calls, letters from build-
ers, lumber dealers, eal-estate men.
Many telegrams were phony, as
several Congressmen discovered when
they tried to answer them. Others
were signed with the names of people
who later assured members of Con-
gress that they had not seen or sent
the wires. Those tactics, of course,
have been used before.
The prize telegram, however, was-
one sent to all Congressmen from the
St. Paul-Minneapolis area by the
Northwes ter-n Flooing and Lumber
Company, of which V. H. Alberts is
After urging that the veterans'
housing program be defeated, the
Lumber Company had the gall to add:
"Please also exert your efforts to
oppose a standing vote on these is-
In other words, the Northwestern
Flooring and Lumber Company not
only urged its Congressmen to vote
against the veterans but also opposed
a vote which would let the public
know how each Congressman voted.
NOTE--The American Legion and
the Veterans of Foreign Wars did not
go to bat for the veterans' housing

bill. Some veterans charge that this
was because of real-estate interest in
the hierarchy of the two organiza-
tions. The AMVETS, on the other
hand, went to bat vigorously.
Churchill On Greece
U. S. Officials just returned from
Greece told the following story on
Winston Churchill while the ex-Prime
Minister was in Washington.
About a year ago when Churchill
visited Athens, he said to British Am-
bassador Leeper: "Tell me about this
man Damaskinos. Would you describe
him as a scheming, medieval pre-
Churchill was referring to Arch-
bishop Damaskinos of Greece. Af-
ter a moment's thought, Leeper re-
"I would never thought of it in
exactly those terms, but I suppose
you would."
"Fine, fine," answered Churchill.
"That's just the sort of man we want."
Shortly afterward, Archbishop Da-
maskinos was appointed Regent of
