ZIYDA C
tED CONFUSION CLOUDS, blowing hith-
er and yon about the state, have gather-
over this campus. Some students and
1culty members are fogged as to why the
lministration has withdrawn campus rec-
nition from Michigan Youth for Demo-
atic Action, and wonder whether actions
ainst other campus groups are in the
fing.,
Association with the administration has
nvinced me that MYDA has been refused
cognition because of its part in a Corn-
lunist youth master plan. The withdrawal,
believe, was effected independent of any
olitical press-ore." I doubt that other.
,mpus groups will be eliminated unless it
proved that they are masquerading here
itler false colors.
MYDA not only contains communists; '
is parent organization, American Youth
or Democracy, is listed in a Communist
arty memorandum as "the most import- '
nt and effective channel for organizing
ntl promoting effective action of the ad-
ajied anti-fascist youth."
That statement is reported in a memor-
idum on youth work and policy, adopted
J the national board of the Communist
arty on Nov. 29, 1945.
Editorials published in The Michigan Daily
re written by members of The Daily staff
nd represent the views of the writers only.

Onfusion
THE MEMORANDU M reve Lt main :ek:
of the party to be:
1. "Aid in establishing .Oint action and
unity of the broadest sections of yout In (
specific issues and a broad minimum ant -
fascist democratic program.
2. "Support and .build flim organization
and activity of the most advanced anti
fascist youth - the American YouI Ii!ifor
Democracy.
3. "Develop systemati Commnunisi. Party
work and Marxist education among ie
youth, and give party guidance and diree-
tion to young Coinmuniqts active amronig the
youth."
It includes the Sovie. Union as a "demo
cratic force" and says L that Y1) stands
for a 'New World' i wich "iecity, pov
erty, want and oppreision iiVe been abo
ished." It considers this 'a generaly ade-
quate programmatic basis for \ide'preCd
discussion and consideration of the iItLire
in the light of the demociatitiC ahd sociaist
forces at work in the workl today."
AYD in other words has beei et up by
the Communists "to recruit young people
to the party on a mass scale and to train
personnel of Comnunists working among
the youth, both in the mass movement
and the party itsel"l-
This report proves at least that MYDA
is not just a liberal organization, but a re-
cruiting center for the Communist Party.
The administration thought this over. Final
action, I believe was based on l discrep-
ancy between the MYDA pIatforn on this
campus, and portions of the master plan

Housing Program

APPROVAL BY THE Senate Banking
Committee of the Wagner-Taft-Ellender
bill is an encouraging sign to those millions
of homeless veterans who have heard much
talk about housing and housing problems
but have seen little direct action by the gov-
ernment or industry to improve their situa-
titbn
For months leaders in the construction
field vigorously asserted that priority con-
rls on building materials and ceiling prices
o'i new homes were "curbing free enter-
prise" and slowing down the national hous-
ing program. When Congress finally yield-
ed to the pressure of the housing lobby in
Washington, Wilson Wyatt resigned as
housing administrator because he saw in the
drastic curtailment of controls, the collapse
of all effective attempts for more housing at
lower prices.
The W-T-E bill serves to replace the pro-
gram as it stood before, with a government
housing program and a system of subsidies
to builders of low cost houses. The bill sets
up' a National Housing Commission with a
single administrator at the head of it to
supervise government activity in the hous-
ing field.
The main features of the bill as it now
stands will institute a program of home
ownership and rental housing for lower in-
conie families, clearance of slum and blight-
ed areas, a farm housing program under the
direction of the agriculture department, and
a research program by the national housing
agency to provide technical advice and guid-
ance to communities for local housing stud-
ies, surveys, and regional planning.
Backers of the legislation which has the
support of AVC and other veterans' organi-
zations, feel that only. an overall plan like
this can give us anywhere near the number
'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
Wages and Prices
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
THE DEBATE on prices and wages con-
tinues to bring out touches of whimsy
from a good many of the debaters. There
is something about this subject which caus-
es realism to fly out of the window; the
result is a curiously bootless discussion, Sen-
ator Taft, forexample, says that if the prob-
lem is to protect the purchasing power of
the people, it would be a better approach to
reduce taxes than to grant even modest
wage increases. But the tax saving offered
to the average workman by the G.O.P. re-
duction plan amounts to about a hot $59
a year, whereas even the moderate wage in-
creases recently agreed upon by the steel
industry come to five times that.
An economic plan is almost certain to be
wrong when it is based on the unspoken as-
sumption that $59 is quite as good as $250;
and there is revealed a kind of insensitivity
to the anguished mental arithmetic that is
going on today in most of the kitchens of
the land.
The price-wage discussion is rich in this
sort of angle-shooting. There is the Hon.
Alf M. Landon, for example, who suggests
that one of the ways in which to bring pric-
es down is to pass legislation ending the
"monopoly aspects" of trade unionism. The
rather uninteresting point Mr. Landon
makes is that if we were to give up indus-
try-wide pay increases, and industry-wide
pricing, and get back to a local or plant, bas-
is on these matters, prices would go down.
But one wonders why it is necessary to
take these subtle, roundabout approaches
to the price problem, and why we can't cook
on th efront burners instead.
bn dinn't oiite se why it is ncessary

of houses that we need in the next ten years
to take the infamous one-third of our nation
out of the class of the "ill-housed."
Final action and the hopes of millions are
now in the hands of the Congress.
-Walter Dean
Ford 1Memorial
NOW THAT THE INITIAL SHOCK of
Henry Fords death has worn of, the
best thing that can be said about him is that
he was a kindly old man who participated
in a good many charities that did a lot of
people a lot of good.
However, so that we won't forget him,
some of the citizens of Detroit have begun
to agitate for a Henry Ford Memorial-not
just a statue, they say, but a recreational
school or a university in his memory. It's
a good idea (founding universities is always
desirable) but not for the reasons advanced,
People would have us believe that we are
somehow indebted to some contribution Mr.
Ford made to civilization.
Here are Ford's accomplishments briefly,
as we see them:
1. He helped put the world on wheels.
2. He made the Ford Motor Car Co.
the biggest and best of its kind through
application of the motto "work, industry,
production."
3. He outwitted the financiers of Wall
Street, and the (30-UAW for years.
4. He gave the world lessons in paci-
fism
5. lie paid his workers more than his
competitors paid their workers.
Although Mr. Ford was a respectable man
in every way almost always, lie had his bad
moments, all of which are pretty well known.
Still his reputation is so good on the whole
that we overlook them.
So what is thee that is articutai'ly in-
spiring about Mr. Ford's life? If the citi-
zens of Detroit feel tha tthey need another
university devoted to the teaching of mod-
ern industrial techniques, or that they need
parks and playgrounds, by all means they
should go ahead and start building and
call the project a "Henry Ford Memorial."
The citizens will benefit. But a more fit-
ting tribute to a man of Ford's stature, we
think, would be a statue, prominently dis-
played on the banks of the River Rouge.

H1ARVARD UNIVERSITY recently an-
nounced that a program of graduate
studies to train specialists in affairs of the
Soviet Union will be offered beginning next
September.
The program will be designed especially
for students planning to enter public serv-
ice, journalism or business. Covering the
contemporary Russian scene and its essential
background, the courses will include Rus-
sian history, economics, government, an-
thropology, social institutions, foreign pol-
icy and literature. In addition, students
enrolled in the program will acquire a work-
ing knowledge of the Russian language.
Harvard, in making this move, is recog-
nizing an urgent need in this country for
thorough understanding of the Russians and
of the Russian -mind, both on the part of
government diplomats and private citizens.
It is to be hoped that other Universities will
speedily follow Harvard in the cause of in-.
ternational enlightenment.

at least 7 and not more than 9.
Why is this?
First of all, the Hare quota is
(letemrmined by only two things:
1) the total strength of the vote;
2) the number of posts to be, filled.
The number of candidates run-
ning and the evenness of uneven-
ness of the voting have not the
slightest effect. This is certainly
the ideal situation, because the
number of votes required to get
elected should depend on the num-
ber of posts available and the
number of votes cast in all. Thus
one-half of the votes should be
able to filled one-half of the posts,
etc
It is true that if the voters do
not indicate enough choices, some
ballots will have to be discarded
because of exhausted preference.
This simply means that the total
strength of the vote is somewhat
less than 3,000. An analogous thing
happens in a "score" system when
many voters fail to use their full
scores. In the Hare system as used
on this campus, when the total
strength of the vote is lowered be-
cause of discards, we lower the
quota accordingly. If the voters in
one group tend to mark fewer
choices than in other groups, the
effective strength of that one
group will be diminished; just as
in a "score" system the strength
of a group is diminished if its
voters do not use their full score.
If the recent election was typi-
cal, about 390 ballots will be dis-
carded during our hypothetical
example. If we assume that Group
A actually does represent one-
third of the voting strength, its
proper share of the discard will be
130. Hence Group A will have 870
active ballots. With this many
discards, the quota will be 106.
As our poorer candidates are
eliminated, their ballots are trans-
fered to their teammates, whose
piles therefore get bigger and big-
ger. As soon as our leading candi-
date passes the 106 mark, he is
elected. Exactly 106 of his ballots
are removed from circulation; any
excess are passed back to hs
teammates who are still in the
swim. We now have 764 ballots
circulating in our group. One by
one our strongest candidates are
elected in this manner, and each
one withdraws 106 ballots from ci-
culation. After eight of them have
been elected, we have 22 ballots
left. Since this is not enough to
elect another candidate, they're
left over.
Of course, the first distribution
may not be an accurate indication
of our total strength, which de-
pends also on our showing in later
preferences. But the only way
the true strength of a group can
fail to be reflected exactly in the
representation it receives is
through rare accidents in which
more ballots are "exhausted" in a
particular group than should be.
If the contest for the 24th position
is very close, an error of a few
ballots may throw one position the
wrong way This is why I said, that
one-third of the voters can be sure
of getting one-third of the posts,
plus or minus one. The possibility
of such accidents is remote in-
deed in comparison to the acci-
dental factors which determine
the quota itself under "simple"
score" schemes.
