Warnings

'HE American public is getting a little
tired of being told about the dangers of
e atomic bomb and the resulting neces-
y for world unity. Ever since the atomic
sh over Hiroshima, all sorts of people in
sorts of places-statesmen, politicians,
entists, military men, radio .commenta-
s, newspaper columnists-have been
imming the same lesson into our heads.
e must have one world, or else the human
ce will be destroyed by the atomic bomb.
The repetition is becoming a little bor-
ig. Many people today close their ears
,nd receive the lesson as indifferently as
student listening to an exceedingly dull
istory lecture. But the fact remains that
he atomic bomb is not past history, but
very real, vital and dangerous factor in
ur future.
rhe most recent warning about the atom
mb comes from atomic scientist Edward
h1er, physics professor at the University of
icago. Writing in the latest issue of the
lletin of the Atomic Scientists, Prof. Tel-
predicts that future bombs may easily
more than one thousand times larger
an those used in the last war.
He warns that larger bombs may prove
be more dangerous in an indirect way

through radioactivity than they are through
blast and burning. By careful planning and
design, he says, an enemy could make life
impossible for us without delivering a sin-
gle bomb into our territory, by releasing
radioactive air masses. Strong enough ra-
dioactivity will kill all living things, Prof.
Teller states, and adds that this is "much
more than a fantastic possibility."
Prof. Teller's article was checked by the
War Department for security violations and
cleared for publication. He is one of the
leading atomic scientsts in the world, and
worked on the bomb at George Washington
University, Columbia University, the Univer-
sity of Chicago and Los Alamos.
The scientists who worked on the atomic
bomb do not under-estimate its danger.
They have left their laboratories to at-
tempt to tell us how very necessary it now
is for man to learn the essential methods
for living in peace with his neighbors all
over the world. Last year 17 atomic scien-
tists and American generals wrote a little
book reporting on "the full meaning of
the atomic bomb." They called it "One
World or None," and emphasized the fact
that it depends entirely on our present
world behavior whether World War Three,
the war to end more than war, ever comes.
We're getting rather bored with hearing
this lesson repeated over and over. We tend
to ignore the speakers and writers who are
trying to make us understand. And yet this
is the most important lesson that we as a
nation have to learn.

White Primary

This is American Brotherhood Week, a
period designed to further the cause of tol-
erance in the United States. Yet this week
will be better remembered as the time when
tolerance in America took a step backward.
[ronically enough, during this period dedi-
cated to the elimination of racial and relig-
ious prejudice, Herman Talmadge and his
Georgia gang have managed to push a white
>rimary election through the state legisla-
ture. By removing all mention of primary
elections from the state constitution, Her-
nan Talmadge, or "Hummon" as a national
magazine calls him, has made it virtually
.mpossible for the Negro to have a voice in
he state government.
Several years ago, the United States
Supreme Court ruled that a Negro could
not be denied the right to vote in regular-
ly scheduled elections. Now "Hummon"
and his coherts have decided to abridge
that right for ".. . the good of the Negro."
By making the Democratic party in Geor-

gia a private club, "Hummon" and his
gang are able to restrict membership to
those citizens deemed "fit" to take part in
the government.
Legally "Hummon" is in the clear. He is
free to continue the comic-opera fight for
the governorship which has made Georgia
the butt of country-wide jokes. Waving the
banner of white-supremacy fostered by his
father, "Hummon" has massed his father's
followers solidly behind him. His dema-
gogic tactics have won the approval of the
majority of members in the state legislature.
It is a sad commentary on the contem-
porary American scene when instances of
this kind are allowed to go unchecked. A
nation which has just finished a war to end
Fas ism in Europe now stands idly by while
another brand of Fascism flourishes in its
own back yard.
Yes this week will be remembered-but
not for the advancement of brotherhood
among men.
-Dick Maloy

19D RATER BE RIGHT:
Occupation Notes
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
PRAGUE-SOMETHING happens to a
country which has been occupied. I
don't mean the obvious things like having
slivers put under fingernails. I mean what
happens to everybody. An occupation dis-
torts life. It is as if it makes everybody look
at things through badly fitted glasses, with-
out knowing they are wearing them. A
Czech told me that recently he criticized
a minister of the government before a party
of friends. One plucked his sleeve and
whispered, "Don't say that, you will be pun-
ished." The Czech answered, "Why? We are
free now." His friend said meekly, "That's
true. I had forgotten."
Small things become very important
during an occupation, whispers sound
like roars. A couple of months ago one
of the comic weeklies here published a
short article burlesquing the plots of'
American superfilms But it happened
that the American film, "Wilson," opened
the same week. The incident made quite
an uproar. The article was interpreted as
a cover Leftist attack on Woodrow Wil-
son, who is revered here, on the United
States and on the Conservatives' com-
mand there were flareups and explana-
tions. It is with these over-sensitized eyes
and ears that a people come out of occu-
pation.
As to how free the Czechs are now, two
years after occupation, the answer probably
is that they themselves don't know. Few
Czechs dared to criticize Communists during
the first six months after liberation. Since
then there has been a loosening up; right-
wing newspapers do criticize Communism,
but they do it obliquely by attacking Left-
wing newspapers. In part these blunted
polemics are traditional here; in part, cur-
rent restraint is certainly based on fear of
Russia and the Reds. . But t h e r e is
something else beneath all this; occupation
has made the Czechs enter into a kind of
agreement to utter no word which might
endanger national freedom. This is a coali-
tion government of all parties, and just
about every newspaper editor in town sits in
parliament; one journal has five editorial
writers in the National Legislature. And so
among them, as among political leaders,
there is a kind of acceptance of a voluntary
discipline to avoid a worse discipline.
One more point is that during an occu-
pation you stop expecting sympathy. You
expect to be treated as if you smelled
funny. It's an old thing, but when an
American says a kind word about Czecho-
slovakia here, it makes a sensation. It
doesn't take a lot of sympathy to do it,
just a touch. The Czechs know they have
things here Americans don't favor, lots of
Communists, nationalization of industry
and so on; and they have forgotten to ex-
pect to be liked. But to watch the effect
of a kindly word about some detail of their
effort is like watching a thaw after a dec-
ade of frost. And when some foreign visi-
tor, who has not shared the ordeal, dis-
misses what the Czechs are going through
with a catchword, one can almost see the
faces hardening, the eyes returning to that
unexpectant loneliness which was the set-
tled. national expression for so long.

MUSIC
Although holding to his familiar concert
technique of "eat your spinach and you'll
get your ice cream," Alec Templeton in-
cluded a few of the heavier classics in his
program last night at Hill Auditorium.
The serious half of the program, which
proved singularly tedious with an uninter-
esting Bach Prelude and Fugue and the in-

evitable Chopin nocturne, received little
more than polite applause.
Setting himself and the audience com-
pletely at ease, Templeton started the latter
part of the concert with 'Humoresque Di-
vorced from Dvorak' and went quickly into
his tradional two-in-one-four-in-one rou-
tine.
Revealing by his encores that he is, after
all, the comedian first and the musician sec-
ond, Templeton was successfully all four
members of a barber-shop quartet, a 'scat'
singer slaughtering Irving Berlin's 'Marie'
and, in response to a call from the audi-
ence to "Open the door, Alec," the notorious
Richard operatically keeping the door shut.,
On the whole, the evening was enjoyable,
apparently for pianist as well as audience,
and it was evident that the numbers, for the
most part, were chosen with care to show
P the Templeton personality to its greatest ad-
vantage.

AY I D Motives
To the Editor:
I would be inclined to more be-
hief in the purity of AYD motives
if their platform planks incluld
one which stated that along with
being anti-lynch, anti-Franco,
etc. they would also be anti-Tito.
Also, it is not too late for the AYD
to draw up a resolution deploring
the rigging of Polish elections in
favor of the puppet government.
And I am sure that the AYD
members know just as much
about the situation in Yugoslavia
as they do about what is going on
in Spain.
I ask the AYD. Why be narrow-
minded? If you are going to de-
plore the abrogation of civil lib-
erties why restrict your interest
to one section of the country, or
of the world for that matter. We
all know fascist armies supported
Franco in the Civil War in Spain.
Do we also know that Red generals
and Red Army troops opposed him
at the same time. What makes
the fascists black and the commu-
nists white? I am under the im-
pression that the Communist state
in Russia is totalitarian. Now all
the AYD has to do is prove thak
Communism and democracy are
one and the same thing.
It is quite fashionable to be an-
ti-Franco. Hollywood has been
anti -Franco for quite awhile. It
is not quite so fashionable to be
anti-Tito, or to question the val-
idity of the puppet states set up
by Russia in Yugoslavia and Po-
land. If we are going to set up
general principles or criteria to
apply to foreign governments in
order to determine whether the
people of those countries are get-
ting a fair deal, let us apply these
to all countries without exception.
I believe that our government
has hestitated in censuring the
Franco regime in Spain because
it knows that in Mexico City the
Communist government-in-exile
is waitingto return to Spain. In
other words it would be a ase of
"out of the frying pan into the
fire." I would be very happy to
see ' the Franco regime replaced
by one truly representative of the
people, but not another puppet
state like Yugoslavia.
I would like to state that I am
anti -,Fascists, anti - Communist
and I am beginning to wonder
about monarchies.

Parking Space
To the Editor:
The parking problem in the vi-
cinity of the University campus
has been difficult, but the recent
police and city drive to reduce
available parking space still fur-
ther has made the situation intol-
erable. Most streets near the
campus now have parking prohibi-
ted on one or both sides, even
though many are of normal width.
The law forbids parking within 20
feet of an intersection, but most
"No parking to corner" signs now
are placed about three times this
distance from the corner ,thereby
reducing available parking space
in each block by another 10% to
20%.
As a result, it now generally is
impossible to park within five
blocks of the campus, and park-
ing tickets have been passed out
freely to anyone not adhering
strictly to the letter of the law,
even though plowed snow prevent-
ed proper parking in many places.
The motorist who tries to protest

what appears to be an unfair is-
suance of a traffic violation tic-
ket is greeted by an unreasonable
"Tell it to the judge" attitude.
and of course most citizens will
pay the dollar fine rather than to
suffer the inconvenience and loss
of time required for cour; action
on a not-guilty plea.
It appears that the city of Ann
Arbor has discovered yet another
way to gouge the University, its
students and faculty. This was

LTHOUGH they differed on method, both
Gov. Sigler and his opponents who fav-
red the sales tax amendment agreed on the
ecessity of raising more money to improve
lie lot of Michigan schools and teachers. And
ell they might!
For Michigan along with the other 47
ates is confronted with the possibility of a
reakdown of the public school system. The
merican public as a whole has, from time
o time, hearkened to vague warnings that
11 was not well with their public school sys-
em, but it remained for the New York Times
> conduct an extensive survey which has
evealed some pertinent and quite startling
acts. Some of the findings as they appeared
I the Times:
"Three hundre&d and fifty th-usand
teachers have left the American public
schools since 1940.
The United States spends 1.5 per cent
of its national income for its schools.. .
he Soviet Union spends 7.5 per cent.

School buildings are in a deplorable
state all over the nation. Nearly five bil-
lion dollars will be needed to bring the
educational plants into' good condition.
Class room teachers get an average of
$37 a week today. Two hundred thousand
get less than $25 weekly.
Twenty-two per cent of all college stu-
dents attended teachers colleges in 1920.
Today seven per cent attend.
Veterans do not want to prepare to teach.
Only 20,000 of the 1,000,000 veterans in
American colleges and universities are in
teachers colleges.
Sixty thousand teachers in the United
States have a high school education or less.
The problem is a complex one, but it seems
that the main method of luring competent
teachers back into public education as well
as attracting new ones to the field lies in
providing adequate salaries for public
school teachers.
