Union Opera

WHEN, at the end of each Union Dance
the lights grow dim and the band drifts
softly into "When Night Falls Dear," shades
of the Union Opera of old steal across the
ballroom - music from the past which was
written and made famous by University
students of another day.
The Union Opera, which has been kept
alive both by the many colorful songs it
added to campus life and by the actual Un-
ion building which it helped to finance, is
unique in that it is one of the few remaining
traditions linking today's generation of
Michigan students with those of another
era. Therefore, it is doubly important that
the Opera be revived.
Already too much of the student spirit
which helps make a University great has
disappeared from the Michigan campus. In-
Editorials published in The Michigan Daily

creased enrollment, crowded conditions and
student indifference have almost complete-
ly changed this college into a cluster of
hollow lifeless buildings - a factory for the
mass production of brains. If this trend
continues, a college education in the future
will no longer be a memorable experience,
but a bitter dose of mental castor oil to be
swallowed by youth as one of the penalties
of growing up.
The only way to strengthen this rapidly
vanishing student life is for the students
themselves to take an interest in bringing
back Michigan traditions. Plans are going
forward to revive the Union Opera - a con-
test is being conducted to find the best
student-written script from which to build
a new and even better musical comedy. This
movement should have the support and
active participation of the whole campus.
If you have even an inkling of a good
idea for a Union Opera, write Harry Skin-
ner, 556 S. State for complete contest rules.
There's a $100 prize involved and a chance
to help revive a colorful and illustrious tra-
dition.

Returning War Dead

O ANYONE who has seen the quiet dig-
nity of United States Military Cemeter-
ies in Europe, the movement to return war
dead to private burial grounds in America
seems rather strange.
Row upon row of clean white crosses, dot-
ted with Stars of David, cover the last rest-
ing places of American men who gave their
lives during the war. Citizens from sur-
rounding villages have adopted the graves
as their own, taking it upon themselves to
beautify the landscape.
Here lie Americans from all walks of life,
in a final resting place among the men
Occu pat
By JOSEPH and STEWAR ALSOP
WASHINGTON, May 25-Another demon-
stration of phony budget - and policy
-making is likely to be offered shortly in
this torpid and complacent nation. Present
forecasts are that appropriations to meet
occupation costs in Germany, Japan and
Korea will be considerably reduced when the
House Appropriations Committee finishes
chewing over the War Department estimates.
The complete sham of this kind of econ-
omy has already been proved, for the record,
at this session. Last year, with loud cries
of indignation, the Congressional economiz-
ers sliced $306,000,000 off the War Depart-
mpent's request for $725,000,000 for occupa-
tion costs. They were solemnly warned by
Secretary of War Robert Patterson and every
other competent official that the job could
not be done on the cheap. They ignored the
warnings. As a result, the War Department
had to come to Congress at the present ses-
sion with a $00,000,000 deficiency request.
Former President Herbert Hoover added his
voice to the urgings of the Administration.
And the deficiency appropriation passed,
thus neatly cancelling out last year's boast-
ed economy.
The request this year is again for $725,-
000,000 and is demonstrably utterly inade-
quate. Japan and Germany are both still
economically prostrate, and their economic
prostration means that a world starved for
goods is being continuously deprived of the
potential output of two of its great produc-
tive centers. The War Department estimates
were prepared, and were approved by the
Budget Bureau, without any reference to
what is rapidly becoming Point Number
One of current American policy - to get
German and Japanese (especially German)
production going full blast in the shortest
feasible time. To achieve this objective, a
much more generous and ambitious pro-
gram is obviously needed, as the recent
hunger strikes in Germany all too plainly
prove. Yet the Congressional economizers
are again fingering their little pruning
knives in a happy delirium of self -delusion,.
This is true, moreover, despite the obvious
danger that Britain may not continue to
be able to pay her share of the expense of
the merged Anglo-American occupation
zones in Germany. When and if the British
demand that this country shoulder a larger3
share of the dollar cost in Germany, the fin-P
ishing touch will be given to one of the
classic exhibitions of how not to behave as
a world power.
The story begins in the dim past, when
Roosevelt and Churchill were arguing bit-
terly about which zones of Germany should
be occupied by whom. Roosevelt was con-
vinced that France would be plunged into
social chaos when the war ended. He, there-
fore, wanted the northern zone of Germany
now occupied by the British, so that the
United States Army's line of communica-
tion would not run through French terri-
Actually I think that Henry Wallace's ac-
tivities (including his trip abroad) have done
the private enterprise system more good than
harm. They have shown that it can produce
a Wallace.
There are not many systems in the world
today which could produce, and sustain, and

,

with whom they fought and died. All races
and creeds, generals and privates, are united
in death. They lie in the countries they
fought to liberate-France, Belgium and
Holland.
Next of kin of the fallen men have been
given the option of having the remains of
their loved ones returned to the United
States. This return can only open up the
wounds of an old sorrow. It would seem to
be far better that these honored dead be
allowed to lie among their comrades in the
lands they gave their lives to free.

tory. The British, with their more practi-
cal eyes on the Ruhr and the great German
industrial complex, were also determined to
have their present zone. Furthermore, the
United States government was split on Ger-
man policy between the War and State De-
partments where some trifling common
sense still prevailed, and the pastoralizing
faction headed by Secretary of the Treasury
Henry Morgenthau jr.
After the British loan negotiations, it was
apparent that this financing could only come
from the United States. Yet when the Ang-
lo-American zonal merger was subsequently
negotiated, Secretary of State James F.
Byrnes and General Lucius D. Clay made
one of their rare mistakes in judgment by
seeking to place upon the British 70 per cent
of the dollar costs of the merged zones.
Bevin made a personal plea to Byrnes to
base the distribution of expense on ability
to pay. In the end, Byrnes offered to take
50 per cent of the cost, or to exchange zones
with the British and pay 65 per cent of the
cost. This naturally forced the British to
accept the American offer. But the real
effect was merely to give the Americans a
bargaining victory at the expense of German
recovery. And now it is entirely possible that
in six months or so, the British will have to
ask that the deal be renegotiated.
On Tuesday, fortunately, former President
Hoover will again go to the Capitol to try
to convince House members that two and
two make four in Germany and Japan as
well as in the United States. It is to be hop-
ed that after the series of lessons already
received on the dangers of unrealistic policy
making, Hoover's authority will reverse the
present trend. If total world production is
not somehow increased, total world chaos is
a not impossible result.

ON WORLD AFFAIRS:
German Steel
By EDGAR ANSEL MOWRER
AT THE RECENT Moscow Conference
there was much talk of increasing Ger-
many's industrial output in order to supply
Europe's needs. French Foreign Minister
Georges Bidault argues eloquently against
fixing German steel production above seven
and a half million tons annually. If this
amount proved insufficient to supply Eur-
ope, then - Monsieur Bidault argues -
France, Belgium, and Luxembourg were
prepared to make up the deficit.
The dispatch with which this eminently
sound suggestion was buried is alarming.
It permits the suspicion that the American,
British and Soviet delegations were, for dif-
ferent reasons, more interested in rebuild-
ing German industrial power than in satis-
fying the economic needs of Europe.
If they really wished to keep Germany
powerless to attack its neighbors, they
would see to it that German steel pro-
duction was rigorously and permanently
curtailed. For it was with steel that Ger-
many first enslaved economically and then
militarily conquered most of Europe.
Keeping German steel production down
should be easy. For unlike coal, which God
laid down abundantly in what was to be-
come Germany apparently in order that
this country should become the world scour-
age, steel in Germany is essentially an arti-
ficial thing.
Prior to World War I, Germany's aggres-
sive industrial power was built upon a mar-
riage of Ruhr coke and Lorraine iron ore.
Most of the steel was actually produced in
Lorraine blast furnaces, for it took nearly
three tons of iron ore for each ton of coke.
The Versailles Treaty very properly gave
Lorraine back to France. Normally this
would have meant that the Germans would
continue shipping their excellent coke to
Lorraine and the French, Belgiums and
Luxemburgers would make the steel.
This did not fit the plans of German
militarists, Pan-Germanists and industrial-
ists already dreaming of revenge and im-
perial glory. They possessed a trump card:
Whereas Germany could draw upon other
sources of iron ore, notably Sweden and in
Spain, the only other economical source of
coking coal for France was in Britain. Brit-
am - already hell-bent on rebuilding Ger-
many against France - was in no frame of
mind to help expand French steel produc-
tion.
Therefore, the ink was hardly dry on the
Versailles Treaty before the Germans, in
defiance of that Treaty, began withholding
Ruhr coke from French smelters. They not
only refused to sell, they refused to make
deliveries promised as reparations.
Thereafter, as accurately set out in a
U.S. Government study, "The Germans,
through private corporate alliances with
firms in other countries, restrictive cartel
practices, barter arrangements, export
subsidies and manipulation of currency;
turned military defeat in the first World
War into economic victory."
Given half a chance, they will do it again.
At first the infuriated French reacted
savagely. It was to get coke for steel that
thel seized the Ruhr, crushed German re-
sistance and brought the revengeful mili-
tarists to their knees.
Germany was saved by France's ex-allies
the United States and Britain, whose lead-
ers took the same short-sighted view of
German rehabilitation as seemed to be re-
emerging at the Moscow Conference of 1947.
Under the Dawes Plan, Germany promised to
be good and France was compelled to loosen
its strangelhold on Germany's throat.
Fyom then on, there was no stopping the
Germans. By a mixture of whining, duplic-
ity, appeal to Anglo-American banking cu-

pidity, technical skill and sinister political
zeal, they gradually turned the tables on the
French. They built new smelters and mills
and remodelled the old ones to utilize the
richer ores of Spain and Sweden. They fed
coke gingerly to the French, thereby keeping
French steel production down to a mini-
mum.
Then the Germans stream-Rlined their
coal and steel industries into two huge
monopolies that could be utilized as
weapons. With American and British
money they completely modernized their
plants. This done, they persuaded naive
foreign industrialists to enter one great
cartel for steel which Germany could and
did dominate.
The Hoover Moratorium relieved the Ger-
mans of their reparation burden. Soon they
ceased repaying their private debts except,
of course, the short-term obligations held by
foreign bankers who must be kept friendly.

Balien tine's Case
To the Editor:
SINCE THE ARTICLE in Fri-
day's Daily made me appear to
be a second Bilbo, I feel it is ne-
cessary to speak a few words in
my own defense. The story you
gave was grossly exaggerated and
presented a wholly one-sided pic-
ture. It is particularly poor jour-
nalism to front page an article
that makes such a vicious attack
without first substantiating the
evidence. Neither the hospital ad-
ministration nor myself was con-
sulted before publishing the arti-
cle, a course of action which gives
me great confidence in the factual
basis of the other articles and
editorials on racial discrimination
with which your paper is contin-
ually packed. Even a paper such
as The Daily should respect fair
play enough to hear both sides of
an issue, although my own story
will not be nearly as sensational-
istic as your first representation,
The incident concerned was ac-
tually quite different than that
portrayed in The Daily. Mrs.
Murray refused to take the ele-
vator to the 6th floor and trans-
fer a bed patient to another floor
for me. The elevator was not in
use at the time and had not been
for 15 minutes during which I
rang futilely for it, although she
was supposed to be running it at
the time. She bitterly resented
my complaint when I walked down
7 floors to find her sitting beside
an idle elevator, writing a note.
When I asked who was running
running the elevator, I was told
it was none of my" business"'
and her only answer to my request
to return with the elevator for
the patient was to release a tor-
rent of invective and abuse. Fur-
thermore, a short time after my
work began that evening, she re-
turned with another elevator op-
erator, a person entirely unknown
to me, and together they proceed-
ed to denounce me with the most
obscene and profane language I
have yet heard. At no time did
I use any profanity in personal
reference to either of these wom-
en.
Since there were no witnesses,
the situation is now reduced to
mutual accusation and denial,
with no proof of what actually
was said by either party. The
Personnel Office of the University
Hospital has had previous com-
plaints about the service rendered
by Mrs. Murray when on duty.
The various Negro organizations
callen in to "defend" these "help-
less women" are more concerned
in inflaming the Negro employes
of the Hospital than they are with
arriving at the truth, and the
story in a short space of time
has assumed grotesque propor-
tions. The people who signed the
petition against me know neither
me nor the circumstances of this
case, and the threats of violence
which have reached me I view
with utter contempt. I have no
fear of men who make their
threats in absentia.
I have no intention of resign-
ing or apologizing as the peti-
tion demands. Finally, I would
like it to be known that I judge
people primarily by the color of
their hearts and not the color of
their skin.
-C. N. Ballentine
EDITORS NOTE. A Daily reporter
received substantial confirmation
from a University Hospital official
of the story referred to by Mr. Bal-
lentine, before we printed it. In
addition, an eye-witness to the "al-
leged profane and humiliating lan-
guage" directed at Mrs. Murray will
authenticate it.
Both Sides
To the Editor:
I N FRIDAY'S JAILY, you pub-
lished an article in which a
medical student allegedly insulted
a Negro elevator operator at the
University hospital. You con-
tinued to -report of the humilia-

tion, which this woman suffered,
as well as a petition which fifty-
five people signed demanding eith-
er a mass apology or the immedi-
ate resignation of the student.
The one glaring point of this
article, which struck me as bad
reporting, was the absence of any
statement by this student, or even
a mention of the fact that he
could not be reached for comment.
I have not found any article in
your two successive issues which
has tried in any way to present
his side of the stony.
I am sure that such an article,
no matter how innocently report-
ed, can cause irreparable damage
to an individual's reputation un-
less all the facts are known.
I certainly doubt whether the
fifty-five people who signed the
petition were eyewitnesses. At
best, they probably got second or
third hand information.
From where I sit, it sounds as
though the person, or group, who
is responsible for the petition is
trying to make an example of this
medicalstudent to champion a
racial cause. For my part, I

would like to heard what Mr. Bal-
lantine has to say.
-Graham M. St. Jon
Clean House
To the Editor:
To HAVE such a thing as a
peaceful world, we will have
to clean our own front room, Why
not stait with the not so trivial
incident of Charles Ballentine?
He who humiliates the people who
do him a service every day, is un-
worthy of any service at all,
What kind of democracy is this
if all races, colors, and creeds can
not go happily about their work
without some pip-squeak making
it miserable for them because of
prejudice and ignorance. It Is lit-
tle incidents like this that smould-
er into big things, and undermine
the peace of the world.
When once we candlick this
menace, the world will have rea-
son to accept us as its lesader In
defending the equality of human
rights.

A H Deliveries
To The Editor:
WE WERE WALKING across
campus the other day when
we were hailed by our friend Joe.
He was looking even happier than
he had the day he was discharged
from the Navy, in which he had
been a Henchman, Third Class
He told us he had just passed a
special examination to become a
truck-driver for the Buildings and
Grounds Department. We con-
gratulated him anddasked him
what was the most difficult part
of the test. He smiled in a superior
way, and then he thrust into our
hand a wrinkled page from the
brief examination. Here is Section
V with his answers:
1. Regarding deliveries at the
northeast door of Angell Hall on
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fri-
days---is there any prescribed
time for making such deliveries?
(Yes or No).
Answer: Yes.
2. What is that time? (Better
check your answer to Question
1).
Answer: (I did.) Exactly 2
p.m.
3. Describe the Authorized
Parking Procedure for deliveries
at that northeast door. (Be x-
plicit),
Answer: The truck should be
backed to a position such that
the rear end is within three feet
of the top step, as close as pos-
sible to the iron railings. The
front of the truck should be di-
rectly athwart the intersection
of the sidewalks near the corners
of Haven and Angell Halls.
4. Does the nature of the
things being delivered have any
bearing on the carrying-in pro-
cedure? (Be even more explic t.)
Answer: Yes. The small pack-
ages may be carried in at any
time while the truck is there,
provided this does not interfere
with handling of larger objects
such as planks, desks, chairs,
etc.. which must be carried in
between 2:02 p.m. and 2:09 p.m.
(Both doors may be used, if nec-
essary, to complete delivery of
these larger items in this time.)
5. What general rule should
guide drivers in making ,thee
deliveries, and why? (e gen-
eral.),
Answer: Drivers should strive.
.for promptness at all times, in.
order that deliveries may be.
made with maximum conveni-
ence. .
By the time we had read this,
Joe was in a hurry to leave, nd
we didn't have a chance to ay
much, so we just walked away,
thinking hard,
