I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:

Housing Units

By SAMUEL GRAFTON
ACCORDING to the New York Herald
Tribune, administration economists have
been whispering into Mr. Truman's perhaps
reddening ear the unhappy news that only
750,000 housing units will be started this,
year, as compared with 1,000,000 last year.
This is very strange, because the exit of
Mr. Wilson Wyatt as national housing ad-
ministrator on December 4 was supposed to
be the signal for a new burst of housing
acitvity. Oh, those wonderful days of last
December when so many little conservatives
believed that we had only to throw out our
housing controls, and get rid of priorities,
and set our construction industry free( free,
do you hear, free) to start a tremendous
housing boom. Something must have been
wrong with the theory, because it hasn't
happened. And come to think of it, there
has been a great deal of theoretical wreck-
age scattered over the landscape since late
last fall.
One can remember when Senators
pounded each other on the back in delight
and gratification over Mr. Wyatt's resig-
nation, and assured each other and the
world hotly haw now, with the silly pri-'
orities and allocations gone, houses would
jump from the earth like the crocuses of
spring.
Instead there appears to be something like
a construction recession under way. It is a
curious recession, for during it building ma-
terials companies are reported to be making
unprecedented profits, even on volume that
is far below expectations; some lumber com-
pany earnings are reported at 400 per cent
above normal. And Mr. Truman is declared
to be planning a campaign of "moral sua-
sion" to induce all interested parties to give
us some housing at reasonable cost, though
it doesn't say whether he is merely going
to take his hat off and ask pretty, or get
down on his knees and beg.
All this represents a major theoretical

debacle; the evil result has followed the
adoption of the wrong theory as neatly and
patly as the tinkle of glass follows the heav-
ing of a brick through a window.
And don't look now, but we are of course
in something of the same condition as re-
gards prices. In this field, too, we had
precisely the same Congressional jubila-
tion at the end of control and the same
hearty promises that if only we allowed
prices to be free (free, do you hear) they
would soon settle down. Instead, prices
are at about the highest point in twenty-
seven years, and the Wall Street Journal
says that Mr. Truman has had only "a
dozen or so" price cutting reports, in re-
sponse to his requests, none of them
"significant."
It would be hard to find more striking
examples in history of complete theoretical
collapse, and if we were the kind of people
who called our Congressmen to account, the
heat content of the ensuing blushes would
be nearly enough to make up for the world
coal shortage.
Senator Taft now tells us, as if by way of
reassurance, that the cost of living "has
hardly increased at all during the last four
months." To reach this conclusion, the
Senator selects last December as his base
for making comparisons, two months after
the wild initial rise which put food prices
up nearly fifty percent; what he is really
saying is that the cost of living hasn't gone
up since it hit the sky. The Senator need go
only three months further back in making
his comparisons to paint a picture of a
quite different sort.
The story of the year remains the story
of how a certain theory regarding the way
to run our affairs has had a major test, and
has failed. A great deal of profit has been
made out of the ending of controls, but
conservative opinion is paying a definite
price for this, in the erosion of its philoso-
phy, the wreckage of its grand idea that the
way to save a complex economy, in a diffi-
cult time of transition, is to let nature take
its course. It will be hard for conservatism,
in any similar future urgency, to peddle
with conviction the doctrine that the way
out is to throw 140,000,000 people into a rat
race.

MAN TO MAN:

MATTER OF FACT:
Res in Egypt
By STEWART ALSOP
CAIRO, April 20-Animals in Egypt, and in
most other Middle Eastern countries,
are more valuable commodities than people.
The donkeys, horses and camels are on the
whole better fed, housed and cared for than
the unfortunate fellahin. A few years back,
Americans could afford to react to this in-
formation with an indifference only faintly
tinged with a mild and distant indignation.
It has now become, however, a fact which
closely affects the vital American interest.
For Egypt, like a number of other states in
this area, is a Marxist's dream of a deca-
dent capitalist state rushing headlong down
the Gadarene slope toward social revolution.
The Soviet Union may well now have tem-
porarily shelved any plans for military ex-
pansion in this area in the near future. Yet
enormous opportunities remain for political
expansion, and there are many signs that
the Soviets intend to exploit these oppor-
tunities, and to exploit them far more as-
tutely than in the past.
This exploitation is now only in the pre-
liminary stage. The center of direction for
all Communist activity in the Middle East
is Beirut, and the supreme commander of
this activity is a Soviet official with the
curious name of Daniel S. Solad. Solad
knew nothing about Middle Eastern af-
fairs when he first arrived as a secretary,
in the Soviet Embassy in Cairo some years
ago, but according to those who have met
him, he is a clever man. He has caught on
very quickly.
This intelligence and aptitude are re-
flected in the current Soviet and Communist
line in Egypt and elsewhere in this area.
For Solad and his superiors in Moscow have
clearly recognized that the old-style propa-
ganda, with its anti-religious, materialistic
and rigidly Marxist overtones is not suited
to the social pattern of the Middle East.
Therefore, a new approach has been devised,
with three principal points of emphasis,
each designed for maximum effect.
The first is Mohammedanism. The Sovi-
ets have apparently recognized that their
anti-religious reputation in the intensely re-
ligious Middle East is a hurdle which must
be removed. Therefore, every care is taken
to present the Soviet Union as the great
friend and protector of the Moslem faith.
The Soviet Ambassador in Cairo, Abdul
Rachman Sultanoff, is a somewhat osten-
tatiously devout Moslem, who appears with
becoming and highly visible regularity at
the mosque. A great Soviet Mohammedan
university has been established at Tashkent
in Central Asia, and promising young Mos-
lem intellectuals are given free courses there.
The Soviet radio regularly beams toward the
Middle East readings from the Koran, a
great and difficult art beautifully performed
by the Soviet readers. Soviet radio propa-
gandists have even spoken kindly of the
extreme right-wing Moslem brotherhood.
And so on.
Second, there is nationalism. This re-
duces itself in effect to the cry, "out with
the British," repeated both on the Mos-
cow radio and by members of secret Com-
munist cells, who are instructed to repeat
anti-British and anti-foreign stories in
the bazaars, without giving the source.
Here the Soviets are tapping a rich vein,
for a violent nationalist zenophobia is one
of the chief underlying factors in Middle
Eastern politics.
Finally, the third point of Soviet emphasis
is simply change. Change is the basic So-
viet point, and it is in the long run their
strongest point. For they stand for revolu-
tion in a situation which throughout the
Middle East is essentially revolutionary.
There is no expert in this area-even among
the normally highly conservative British
Colonial Office officials-who is not con-
vinced that a blow-up will come sooner or

later, and probably sooner.
Certainly it is possible to exaggerate the
immediate possibilities of pro-Soviet revo-
lution in the Middle Eastern countries.
Americans especially, newly arrived here, are
apt to suffer from what one old Middle East
hand calls the "What, no Crane plumbing?"
psychology. There's sure to be a revolution
tomorrow. It must be borne in mind that
there never has been Crane plumbing, or
indeed enough to eat, for the mass of the
people in the Middle East, and that the age-
less dumb lethargy of the peasants has keut
the social structure essentially unchanged
since the Middle Ages.
Yet under certain circumstances the un-
derfed fellal is capable of a sudden wolfish
ferocity. During the recent rioting in Cairo
a British military policeman was mobbed
and hanged. When he was cut down, his
body was found to bear the marks of teeth;
in a hysteria of rage the crowds had bitten
right through the heavy stuff of his battle
dress. The hatred of which this is a symbol
is now turned against the British, and to a
lesser extent against the Christian minori-
ties (news of anti-Christian riots in Zigazag
and elsewhere has recently been suppressed
by the Egyptian authorities.) But it is cap-
able of being turned elsewhere, and in the
opinion of many expert observers, sooner or
later it will be.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23,
VOL. LVII, No. 139

1947

By HAROLD L. ICKES
Canada is fortunate in not having a Na-
tional Association of Manufacturers to ride
herd on its Parliament. The result is that
the economy in Canada is much sounder
than it is here in the United States. The
NAM, a year ago, poured out hundreds of
thousands of dollars in propaganda to the
effect that if we would only take off price
controls, production would increase enor-
mously and prices would fall automatically.
Furthermore the opponents of the OPA were
strengthened by the fact that the OPA itself
was not a thing of perfect virtue, but a
mechanism shot through with politics, stu-
pidity, and favoritism from the very begin-
ning for this industry or that consumer
group. The NAM was fortunate enough to
have a Republican Congress, and some Dem-
ocats, too, who believed that it knew its
business. Today we know that we are the
victims of our own credulity. Thanks to
an economically illiterate Congress, OPA
was destroyed instead of strengthened. Now,
instead of prices going down, they are going
up.
The goods and services which still remain
subject to price control are the basic foods,
practically all articles of clothing, boots and
shoes, most textile home furnishings, coal
and wood fuels, automobiles, tires and gaso-
line, rentals, restaurant prices, and a variety
of heavy materials such as steel, copper, rub-
ber, lumber and pulp.
Last week, the Canadian Government
agreed to a 10 percent maximum increase
in. rentals for all housing. But this increase
will be permitted only in cases where the
landlord is prepared to enter into a renewal
lease with the tenant for a minimum term
of two years. Such a lease may be termin-
ated by the tenant at any time on thirty
days' notice, although it is binding on the
landlord for the full two-year term.
In January of this year, Douglas Ab-
bott, Minister of Finance issued a state-

ment reviewing Canada's Price Control
Program. He said in part: "At the begin-
ning of 1946, it was hoped that the year
would see a long step toward the removal
of emergency controls. Material progress
was made in removing and reducing cer-
tain subsidies and in suspending less im-
portant items from the provisions of price
control. Unfortunately, however, external
conditions, particularly in the United
States, increased the pressures on Can-
adian prices and delayed decontrol.
"The menace of soaring prices is begin-
ning to recede in some directions. Never-
theless, prices of many basic foods, clothing,
certain basic materials, and rentals would
increase very substantially if all controls
were now removed . . . The list of items re-
maining under control. . . affords continued
protection to the consumer in the places
where the risk and the effects of rising
prices are greatest."
The wisdom of Mr. Abbott's words, and
of the Canadian policy, is demonstrated by
the fact that while the American cost of
living was rising 23 percent, the Canadian
advanced but seven percent, over the same
period.
When the Congress of the United States
was voting the abandonment of Price
Control, every poll of public opinion
showed unmistakably that the American
people believed in the maintenance of
price control. The Congress ignored the
people's expressed wishes and crooned the
"free competitive economy" lullabies of
the National Association of Manufactur-
erls.
The Congress would have been wiser if
it had represented the people and establish-
ed a workable price control. The Congress-
men who have been cuddling close to the
NAM and taking its bad advice may find it
difficult in 1948 to explain to the people why
they put their money on the wrong horse.

would be elected on the second
distribution. It would have been
pure chance for Smoe or Joe, de-
pending on whether Ballot A or
B was distributed to Moe. You
can't claim insufficient prefer-
ence either, Mr. Taylor.
Under the system proposed
whereby ballots would be weighed
in with their order of preference
(plural preferential or some such
fancy name), the election would
end in a tie regardless of whether
only the first two choices (as two
are elected) or all three are count-
ed. Shall we have a new election,
Mr. Carneiro?
I'd like to know what is wrong
with the very simple method used
by most municipal governments,
when several candidates are to be
elected to the same office, where-
by as many marks (X) are checked
as there are offices. Each are then
weighed equally without fancy re-
distribution or mathematical
weighings. If one uses such a sys-
tem on the ballots above the result
will be: Smoe-7; Joe-7; Moe-6:
So I say, let's have Smoe and Joe
and not Moe.

To the Editor:
Many of the students on cam-
pus are under the impression that
the International Center is pure-
ly for the convenience and use
of the foreign students studying
here. The prevalence of this idea
is helping to defeat the purpose
of the International Center. The
Center was designed originally
with the idea that it would be :t
meeting place for the American
and foreign students; a place
where they could get to know each
other, their customs and their
outlook. The name International
Center was meant to include the
United States under the term "In-
ternational."
This week from April 22 through
April 25 the International Center
and the Ann Arbor Junior Cham-
ber of Commerce are cooperating
in putting on an International
Week. On Tuesday evening an
International Pageant will be giv-
en in Ann Arbor High School Aud-
itorium, on Wednesday there will
be the panel discussion on 'U.S.,
Soviet relations to be held; in
Rackham Auditorium. On Thurs-
day evening the J.C.C. is giving
a banquet for 100 foreign students
who are finishing their studies
here this semester and on Friday
night the International Ball will
be held in the Union Ballroom.
We would like -to take this op-
portunity to invite all the Ameri-
can students on campus not only
to attend any or all of the week's
programs, but to come to the
Center at any time. Schedules for
the regular activities of the Center
may be found from time to time
in The Daily and any of the Amer-
ican students may be sure of 'a
welcome.

ON WORLD AFFAIRS:
Peace With Russia

By EDGAR ANSEL MOWRER
Secretary of State George Marshall and
his opponent, Henry Wallace, are two Amer-
icans with a common goal-peace.
The following is a wholly imaginary con-
versation between them which might have
occurred (but certainly did not):
Marshall: Henry, you ought to be ashamed
of yourself, attacking the President's for-
eign policy just when I am wrestling with
the Russians.
Wallace: Ashamed? Indeed I am not. Sq
long as we're not actually at war, George,
I intend to use my constitutional right to

Wallace: He needed a faithful servvant
to carry out the imperialistic job he has
