Professors Defended
To the Editors:

IN REGARD TO Miss Roslyn Long's letter, in
which she comments that "education is sup-
posed to be rational and not emotional", and
then promptly goes on in an irrational manner
to criticize the policies of one sociology professor.
In defense of this professor and all others who
have the courage as well as the misfortune of
believing contrary to the almighty status quo,
I write this letter.
You mentioned specifically, Miss Long, the
case of communism versus capitalism, and said
that you would not object to being informed as
to the merits of both, if you would be allowed
to draw your own conclusions. Is it not true
that we, being sons and daughters of capitalism,
steeped in the old traditions and ways of think-
ing, have not already drawn our conclusions be-
fore we allow the merits of the other side to in-
trude upon the security of our habitual think-
ing.
Could it perhaps be true that we come be-
fore such a professor with closed minds and
upon every rebuke of our "old thinking" or
proof of its false justification, we build up a
resentment based upon past emotional ties
and beliefs, which resist penetration? It is
just this wall of resentment that a professor
is up against. He is not seeking to convert
you, nor is he trying to bring your derison
upon him. He believes strongly in an ideal,
which, unfortunately, is shared by few, and
wants you to understand the basis for that
ideal.
If at the end of such a course, a student does
not show an objective comprehension of that
idea and the reason for its existence, (this does
not mean an adherence to its policies) then, in
my opinion, a professo has every right to mark
a student down. In teaching the theory of evo-
lution, for instance, it is not required that you
cast out biblical training, and Christian upbring-
ing, which has served you well throughout your
life, but what kind of mark would you expect on
an anthropology exam if when asked to trace the'
development of man, you wrote the first chapter
of the Genesis? - the principle is the same.
In understanding this "one world" of ours, it
is necessary to know WHAT people think, and
WHY they think it, so, rather than to slip into
the lower depths of prejudice and intolerance of
anothers views, merely because they jeopardize
our own security, let us be broad in our view-
point and just in our criticism.
-Thea La Budde
Survey Unjust
To the Editor:
A NEWS STORY in The Daily of Oct. 17 an-
nounces plans for a cost-of-living survey to
be conducted among student veterans on this
campus by the A.V.C. The results of this sur-
vey are to form a basis for a request for addi-
tional subsidies.
May I protest! The subsistence provisions of
P. L. 346 were not designed to meet the entire
living costs, but to aid financially the veteran
in his course of training. For what reasons
should any veteran claim that State and Fed-
eral government defray all his expenses? The
AVC avers proudly, "Citizens first, veterans sec-
ond". The forthcoming demand for a larger
share of the public funds definitely reverses that
order.
Most intelligent Michigan veterans are op-
posed to the state bonus, to be voted upon No-
vember 5. But the principle of additional sub-
sistence is, in truth, a bonus grab, and by a
group of veterans only - those going to college
under the best deal they ever had. Why should
this group be given preference over the ordin-
ary veteran?
The whole idea reminds one of the American
Legion proposals to date. It is unfair to other
veterans, grossly unjust to all taxpayers and
should be exposted for unconstructve whining.
I am a veteran of three years of service-
more than half of which I was in Europe.
-Richard G. Holbrook
EDITOR'S NOTE: For another veteran's opinion on
this matter, see editorial below.

Recordings
RACHMANINOFF devotees may count them-
selves lucky this month. Two noteworthy
releases of works by the late Russian composer-
pianist are listed, one by Victor, the other by
Columbia.
Impetus for the new recording of the well
known Piano Concerto No. 2 was furnished by
the recent movie, "I've Always Loved You,"
which takes it as its theme-song. If previous
experience with movie adaptations of master-
works are any criterion, Victor and Artur Rub-
enstein will do right well. Improvement in re-
cording techniques and Mr. Rubenstein's very
adequate interpretation will enable this work to
contrast favorably with the older recording by
Rachmaninoff himself. The concerto takes nine
sides and on the tenth Mr. Rubenstein plays
Chopin's Impromptu in G-flat, Op. 51, providing
a pleasant contrast to the emotional effect of
Rachmaninoff. Album number is Victor DM
1075; the price is $6.32, tax included.
The other Rachmaninoff set is an album of
songs by Jennie Tourel. (Columbia Master-
works set -625). These are ten in number in-
cluding "O Cease Thy Singing Maiden Fair,"
"The Soldier's Bride," "All Things Depart," "In
the Silence of the Night," "The Answer," "Be-
fore My Window," "Sorrow in Springtime,"
"Floods of Spring," "Lilacs," and "The Droop-
ing Corn." Miss Tourel sings in the original
Russian to which the music is far more suited
than the English translation in which these
songs are often heard. For the benefit of listen-
ers who may be a little rusty on their Russian,
a linear translation of the poetry is provided on
the inside cover of the album. The price is $4.16,
tax included.

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
Firing Line
BY SAMUEL GRAFTON
THE PROFESSION OF being a conservative
is about to take on new difficultis. So
long as government retained control over prices
and production, government was the issue, Roos-
evelt was the issue, Truman was the issue; and
to roar at them was enough to make any man a -
sound conservative. But with the suspension of
most controls, the free enterprise system, in a
sense, becomes the issue. The National Asso-
ciation of Manufacturers takes the place on the
firing line that has just been vacated by the
Chief Executive.
In much the same way, it was easy to be
a liberal during the years when Hitler was in
power. To be against Hitler was enough, and
while such a posture did credit to one's hu-
man sympathies, it involved no great strain
on the cerebral faclties. It was only after
Hitler passed from the scene, and we found
ourselves playing in a drama without the
heavy that liberals began to get a certain lost
and empty feeling, and their movement began
to dwindle. It is a year and a half since Hit-
ler disappeared, but liberalism has not yet
completed the transition from the easy nega-
tives of the Hitler period, to the kind of thrill-
ing affirmations that can hold men and move-
ments together.
The free enterprise system, having asked for
responsibility and having got it, must now ac-
cept all that goes with it; its actions and its
statements must from now on have a serious-
ness, and a consequentiality they have perhaps
not always had before. If meat now piles up
and blocks up in the retail butcher shops because
of high prices, it is the President who will be in
a position to call upon the American Meat In-
stitute to do something, rather than the other
way around.
Prices, not price control, are now the issue.
The New York Stock Exchange, after greeting
the end of meat control with two cheers, has
resumed its drooping; it perhaps senses the
implications of the shift of the onus for our
salvation from public to private hands, and
it does not seem to share the belief that the
end of control automatically solves our prob-

lems. . An uneasy reorientation of attitudes is
taking place; it will now, for example, be
harder to fall on government to "do some-
thing" about labor; for the plea that the gov-
ernment should do something about labor used
to be predicated on the idea that the govern-
ment was meddling vigorously with business;
with the passing of the second idea, the first
fades, too.
The old, easy speeches grow stale. Conserva-
tism, like liberalism after the end of Hitler,
knows now what it is like to be alone, and naked
in a high wind.

Dominie Says
EVERY TIME 'THE universities of America
open their courses two areas of youth's com-
mon experience suffer dramatic change. Voca-
tion and Matrimony, as understood by the stu-
dent, become something entirely new. Inad-
vertently they find that the old norms for judg-
ing one's future work must give place to new
values. Harstshorn of Yale lamented, "The
chief obstacle to moral progress today is the
absence of a Utopia to capture the imagination
and loyalty of men. Our frontiers have gone
in greedy haste. We have all but exhausted our
vast resources. We have lost the sense of the
dignity and sweep of the centuries. The far
horizons of space and time no longer call us.
We lack a cause which can command us. Un-
til we find it, each for himself, there is little
hope of building again the great characters of
a less sophisticated age." (p. 268, Character and
Human Relation.) But here in a university the
universe comes alive. Before you are spread
the professions, the arts, vast research projects,
new types of social organization, the intricacies
of exchange, power systems which stagger the
imagination, the humanities and speculative
philosophy-all are before you as either voca-
tions or avocations.
And of culture, what has religion to say?
The religious observer views culture as a vast
arch built of emotion and intellect. At the
left are the native energies whose drives con-
stitute man's ability to be man. "It is emo-
tional energy which enables him to get out
of bed in the morning, to dress himself, to eat
breakfast, to go to work, to play, to make love,
to care for his family, to fight, to build bridg-
es, or to paint pictures." (Speckle and Appel,
Discovering Ourselves, p. 115) "Without emo-
tion man would do none of those things but
repose, a breathing lump of clay."
At the right, the other side of that arch, ris-
es the expression of intellect. These become the
disciplines, professions, trades, institutions, sys-
tems of thought, languages, vocations, and vast
codes of court procedures which make society
a fact. Where this intellectual expression meets
the emotional expression, the apex of human
effort,-as the key to the cultural arch, is re-
ligion. Religion may be said to adequately func-
tion when those native energies find freedom
within the loves which-have been carefully cho-
sen by man's critical faculties. If you can ac-
complish this transformation as well as the wise
choice of occupation and the sure selection of
wife or husband, your university career will have
been a success. Your university stands ready.
Library, laboratory, area of concentration, resi-
dence hall, athletic event, or student parley, as
well as the creative leadership of great teaching
are all yours. But they are vain unless by the
free pursuit of learning your own industry
proves potent to set your soul in a larger place.
"Hear, my son, a father's instruction," said an
ancient sage,-
"Hold fast my words in your mind.
Keep my commands and live-
Forget not, andl do not swerve from the
words of my mouth:
Above all things get wisdom.
Whatever else you get, get understanding."

BOOKS.
Rhubarb-H. Allen Smith, illustrated by Hirsh
Field, Doubleday & Co. Inc. $2.00
HOSE WHO ARE addicted to the H. Allen
Smith-Max Schulman type of humor will
find Smith's latest masterpiece, "Rhubarb",
very satisfying. And for those who carry the
weight of the world on their shoulders; I could
not recommend a better therapy. It is a clever
satire, in an obvious, witty style, on the social
life of New York City. The sting, however, is
alleviated by his playful manner.
"Rhubarb" is the story of the most famous
cat of all times-the champion of the dying

cause of catdom. His great notoriety came in a
most unusual manner. When the hair tonic
tycoon and owner of the New York Loons base-
ball team, Thaddeus Whitcomb Banner, Who had
a passionate dislike for people (especially his
bobby-sox daughter) and dogs, heard of a cat
who was the scourge of all the dogs in the neigh-
borhood and almost ruined the tennis club by
stealing the balls, he ordered his publicity agent
and only friend, Eric Yeager, to find this cat.
This tiger disguised as a species of felinus do-
mesticus turned out to be Rhubarb. Rhubarb
completely endeared himself to the old misan-
thropist by having nothing to do with anybody
but Yeager and him. As a result, when the old
man died, he left the bulk of his fortune AND
HIS BASEBALL TEAM to the cat under the
administrations of Yeager.
Overnight Rhubarb became the most talked-
about personage in the world. He was sought
after by advertising agencies to endorse every-
thing from shaving cream and whiskey to cigar-
ettes and automobiles; he became the first cat
to ever appear on a radio quiz show and becomej
a patron of the Stork Club. As a climax to his
mad career, by his ability to steal signals and
by means of his genius to inspire his men, he
led the Loons, who had finished in last place
for years, to their first world's championship.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

Inflation Hits Students

T HE GLASS WORKERS, 80,000 of them, just
just received a 121/2 cent raise in wages.
Beef is passing through the Kansas City stock
yards at $38.50 per hundredweight. Add these
latest increases to the cost of living with wage
and price mark-ups made in the last half year
and you have a full fifty percent deflation of
the students' buying-dollar.
Here in Ann Arbor, this summer, price rises
found their way to the non-profit restaurants
to which student veteran, and his sixty-five,
had turned as recourse in stretching his hard-
won dollar. Now, with these new increases, he
must either dip into his meager war savings ac-
count, borrow from the University fund or send
collect wires to Dad. He does not wish to do
any of these things. So, to keep on eating, he
is forced to augment his government check by
working part-time.
Jobs at the Union will pay 70 cents an hour

can hardly spare enough time away from his
studies to make working of practical value to
him.
Everyone else in these United States seems
in favor of an inflation. The veteran will ei-
ther have to join this gang of strikers and pro-
fiteers soon or he will be starved out of exis-
tence.
The AVC poll on the cost of living, now in
progress on campus, will unquestionably prove
the need for an increase in the ex-serviceman-
student's subsistence.
