MAN TO MAN:
Citizen Bernard Baruch
HAROLD L. ICKES
B "RNARD M. BARUCH has created a new
profession which he practices to perfection,
that of good citizenship. And he is as unosten-
tatious about it as he is assiduous.
When Woodrow Wilson was President and
found himself with the First World War on his
hands, among the first men whom he called to
the service of the Nation was this same Baruch.
Long before any except the most perspicacious
saw war clouds lowering on the horizon prelim-
inary to the late war, Bernie Baruch anticipated
that trouble might lie ahead. I remember clear-
ly one day at Cabinet meeting, on September 16,
1938, when the President announced that Bar-
uch had offered his services if it seemed necess-
ary to get ready for another war. Certainly no
one in the country was better qualified to mo-
bilize industry for war than this tall, handsome
and very astute citizen of New York. President
Roosevelt had known Baruch from the First
World War. But there had been inimical in-
fluences at work that were antagonistic to Bar-
uch and did not want him to have any real con-
nection with the administration, although he and
the President had continued to be warm personal
When President Roosevelt set up his first
"subject to change" war organization, Baruch

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
BY SAMUEL GRAFTON
W HOSE POLITICAL head shall we hack off
because of the meat shortage ? The Repub-
licans have a smooth answer: The Democrats are
in power, there is no meat, vote against the Dem-
ocrats. Simple, and to the point; and some of
the Republican papers around New York are
just delighted with the meat shortage; they love
it so. But maybe the theory is too simple.
Just to muddy the waters, let me throw in an-
other theory, pure speculation: The meat short-
age is due, in great part, to the income tax sit-
uation. Cattle growers made their money for
the current tax year during the summer splurge.
This is the last quarter; any profits made now
will be taxed in the higher brackets; growers pre-
fer to keep their animals until after New Year's
Day. This kind of sjackening of pace has be-
come a standard fall phenomenon in many lines
of business; I have just spent an evening with a
magazine editor who says his writers show a
tendency to go on a holiday about this time of
year. If fewer short stories because of taxes,
why not fewer fat cattle? Some Republicans
have been talking of a 2 per cent tax reduction
next year; that talk may help keep cattle off the
I won't defend the above theory quite to the
point of death; if anybody twists my arm to make
me drop it, I'll drop it. I bring it out only to
indicate that the question of ultimate responsi-
bility in a democarcy is a very complicated one.

PROVISION OF essential equipment for three
emergency colleges of upstate New York has
been assured by the Federal Works Administra-
tion from government surplus property. These
three junior colleges are the first emergency in-
stitutions of higher learning for returned veter-
ans to be placed in operation in the United
Champlain College, at Plattsburg, was for over
130- years the parade ground of historic Platts-
burg Army Baracks. Sampson College was form-
erly a naval training station and Mohawk Col-
lege at Utica, the Rhoades Army Hospital. Op-
erated by the Associated Colleges of Upper New
York, a non-profit corporation sponsored by the
State Board of Regents, they will provide edu-
cational facilities for World War II veterans and
others who are qualified to enter college but who
are unable to do so because of overcrowded con-
ditions. It is estimated that these three emer-
gency junior colleges will account for a maximum
of 12,500 students who would otherwise be denied
the opportunity for a college education.
was not on it. By that time the influence of Harry
L. Hopkins was very strong at the White House,
Several shifts of the kaleidoscope produced dif-
ferent patterns of the war organization but Bar-
uch, notwithstanding the great contribution that
he could have made, still remained out of offi-
cial favor. It is a bright light on his character
that this did not embitter him in any degree.
Then came the rubber crisis for which Jesse
Jones, then Secretary of Commerce, was respon-
sible. The country was seething with dissatis-
faction although the powerful Jesse Jones was
able to war doc criticism of himself. In this
crisis, the President turned to the one man in
the country who could extricate it from this
difficulty, quiet public clamor, and restore con-
fidence to the Congress. He made Bernard M.
Baruch Chairman of a Committee of Three to
chart the course of the country with respect to
rubber. At once a calm of confidence inspired
by Baruch's public services and his known abil-
ity and integrity of character came over the
country. The rubber crisis was at an end, al-
though we continued for a long time to be handi-
capped seriously by Jesse Jones' gross mishand-
ling of the rubber program.
Of my own knowledge I know how frequently
Bernard Baruch was called upon during the war
to solve knotty situations and to help men high
in the Government to smooth out annoying dif-
ficulties. He spent most of his time in Wash-
ington but when he was not here men whose
names had become household words did not hes-
itate to go to New York to enlist his interest in
some complicated matter arising out of the war.
His views were even sought eagerly by represent-
atives of foreign governments. Yet he never ev-
en expected any public recognition of his out-
standing services nor has he had any. Others
might hold high-sounding titles or listen to
grandiloquent citations preliminary to the con-
ferring of another decoration. Citizen Baruch
has had none of these things nor has be coveted
any of them.
Now he is engaged in the greatest task of all
Knowing that nothing is more important to the
peace of the world than a wise and just solu-
tion of the problem of atomic energy, he is striv-
ing to reach an accord with the other nations of
the world for the purpose of diverting atomic
energy from war to the pursuits of peace. No
one is better qualified than he is to represent
America in this greatest of international under-
takings. Failure to accomplish this most vital
of assignments might well mean the destruction
of our civilization. Believing as I do in the pa-
tience, sagicity and patriotism as well as in the
overriding love of humanity that possesses Ber-
nard M. Baruch and has been his inspiration for
so many years, I believe that he should be given
the necessary elbow room to bring this negotia-
tion to .a successful conclusion. The country be-
lieves in the principle of the Baruch Plan. I
do too. Knowing him as I do, I am confident
that he would be glad to consider any modifi-
cation of that plan that might improve it, or
any suggestion of a variation in approach that
would make it more acceptable to the other na-
tions concerned. His open-mindedness is one
of his outstanding characteristics. But we would
neither be helping him nor ourselves if we gave
the impression to the world that there was an
irreconcilable difference of opinion in our own
ranks, or that we were more interested in method
than in result.

In dedication ceremonies at Champlain Col-
lege, Governor Thomas E. Dewey remarked that
"Three great military 'swords' are being convert-
ed into educational ploughshares." He went on
to say that he believed New York to be the only
one of the forty-eight states that can say to its
veterans: "You can get the education to which
you are entitled, because we will find a place
for you to get it." Champlain College starts
with a faculty of 109, and will utilize the entire
700-acre expanse of the former Army barracks,
with more than sixty buildings to be used for
classes and dormitory purposes.
The example of the enterprising Mr. Dewey
and his associates might well be followed by
public officials here in Michigan. It seems ob-
vious that it would be better to create a few
emergency junior colleges from the remaining
equipment at nearby Army establishments than
to jam the existing campuses to the degree
now in evidence at theC University.

Whato pn kax
For those of you who like your jazz subdued
and soothing, Errol Garner's album of six piano
solos is highly recommended. Garner, whose
fresh new style has been somewhat of a sensa-
tion in Hollywood jazz circles of late, plays in
a manner vaguely reminiscent of the late Fats
Waller, using a strong left hand, rather uncom-
mon these days, and a full-chorded lyric right
hand. Although he lacks the technical facility
of Art Tatum and the simplicity and taste of
Teddy Wilson, Garner's flowing rhythmic style
is a welcome relief from many of the frantic
"thumpers" of today. Garner plays jazz, but he
also plays in a way that can be appreciated by
those who are not members of the various "inner
circles" and cults of le jazz hot. The six sides
in this album include Embraceable You, Lover
Come Back, Sometimes I'm Happy, Always, I've
Got You Under My Skin. (Mercury Album No.
A note to those who have heard all the fuss
about Dizzy Gillespie, but who haven't as yet
been able to procure any of his discs. Musicraft
has re-issued one of his original sides for Guild
Label, Shaw Nuff and Lover Man. This record
is one of Dizzy's best and will give you an idea
what all this be-bop stuff is about. If you haven't
heard Dizzy before, take it kind of slow with this
record. It's really frantic!
The latest opus by the Herman Herd is a
screamer aptly called, "Blowin' Up A Storm."
This platter really jumps and Bill Harris' mag-
nificent trombone will blow you right out of the
room. Not recommended for followers of Vaughn
Monroe; Perry Como, et al.
The "record renaissance" is now in full swing.
Downbeat reports that 298 record companies are
now in existence. Collecting contemporary jazz
is getting complex to say the least.
IT IS HEARTENING to hear Pastor Oscar F.
Blackwelder of Washington, D. C. before the
United Lutherans in Cleveland say, "We church-
men who count ourselves members of the old line
political parties must help make vocal the hopes
of men on both sides of the railroad tracks, or
they will be driven into the arms of political radi-
cals." A poet who adopted another country has
said it thus:
"Face on face in the city, and when will the
Face on face in the city, but never the face of a
Till my heart grows sick with longing and
dazed by the din of the street
As I rush with the thronging thousands in a
Face on face in the city, and where shall our.
Face to face in the city-my heart goes out to
See, we labor together; is not the bond divine?
Lo, the strength of the city is built of your
life and mine."
.-Anna Louise Strong
There have been few times during the current
century where these ideas were frought with such
possible blessing or danger. The six points
stressed by the pastor were: More overseas re-
lief by the churches (although during this sum-
mer 100,000,000 in Central Europe were fed by the
Allies). Greater good will among leaders inter-
national. Abundance dedicated to human need
rather than scarcity dedicated to profit. See that
every qualified person of any color has the right
to vote in free America. Cvercome the cheapened
value of life (because of universal cruelty and
suffering). Bring back to the world the spirit
forgiveness so that a dynamic peace can be a
It is hoped that the sister bodies of Lutherans
will concur; for these are issues which the masses
of men can understand. Unless our western
statesmen, high in authority, can be taught
speedily by their spiritual leaders to talk a lan-
guage for the tired ear of the millions who suf-
fer, our democracies, secure both in their at-
tained freedom at home and their war won
ascendancy abroad, may bring down on us that
last calamity of which Kipling wrote:
"He that hath a gospel
To loose up Mankind,
Though he serve it utterly-
Body, soul, and mind-
Though he go to Calvary
Daily for its grain-
It is just the people
Shall make his labor vain.
He that hath a gospel
Whereby Heaven is won
(Carpenter of Camlier
Or Maya's dreaming Son),
Many swords shall pierce Him,
Mingling blood with gall;
But it is the people
Who wound Him worst of all."

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
THEAMERICAN VETERAN'S Committee on
campus is sponsoring a "Get out the Vote"
campaign, and the Willow Run Citizen Commit-
tee is conducting a house to house canvass out
at Willow Village expaining voting requirements
and registration procedure.
According to a recent Gallup Poll report, only
33% of the eligible voters in the country went
to the polls in the 1942 Congressional elections.
Compare this "with the recent elections in Eng-
land, Canada. France, and Italy when 75 to 80%
of the eligible people voted. And we are sup-
posed to be the greatest of the democracies.
This is a congressional election year. A whole
new House of Representatives and one-third of
of the Senate will be voted upon.
During the past year, we have heard a great
many complaints about Congress. But congress-
men don't elect themselves. The people elect
them. And the people get what they vote for.
Unfortunately many states do not provide ab-
or guardians who live out-of-state; 4) they
must declare this to be their residence.
In order to vote in Michigan, though, you
must register before October 16. The voters
of Michigan will elect a representative to Con-
gress from each district; a United States Sen-
ator; a governor, and other state and county
officials. Three referendums to the state con-
stitution are also on the ballot.
If anyone is in doubt about his voting status,
