VYASCHLEFF MOLOTOV'S address yesterday
was without any question the most impor-
tant and pregnant speech ever given before
the United Nations, one which should put a
damper upon the myth creators of Soviet Ex-
pansionism. After a lengthy indictment of the
economic Imperialists, he made a specific, prac-
tical proposal for world dis-armament.
Naturally, his words were unhappily received
by the war-mongers in our country. Some of
his critics say that he destroyed the wonderful
conciliatory attitude which prevailed at the
opening session. These are the men who fear
the truth; they want no open, frank discussion
if it means hurting special interests.-On the
other hand, the people who are anxious for
peace, welcomed his direct statements as "con-
structive." The broad masses of people in this
country have been waiting for some concrete
proposals for dis-armament. This was the first
honest effort of any member of the Big Four
to really get down to business.
Molotov's criticism of the Baruch plan for
Atomic Control was indeed valid. Every pro-
gressive within the United States has had
criticism of the policy, whether it is govern-
ment sanctioned or not. Baruch insists that
the United States retain her already existing
spply of the bomb while continuing its
manufacture, while all other nations submit
to International investigation. Only when
the United States is satisfied with Interna-
tional Controls will she cease manufacturing
the bomb.-Is it not fair for the Soviets to ask
what happens in the meantime?
The Soviet plan calls for an immediate adop-
tion of an International Treatry abolishing the
bomb as a weapon for war. Once it is agreed
that the bomb will be outlawed, then can the
method be found under this International Au-
thority for elimination .of its manufacture.-
Molotov recognizes that there is not a clear
line of demarcation between those who want
the bomb as a war weapon and those who- wish
to abolish it. He asks for further open discus-
SOVIET Foreign Minister Molotov addressed
the United Nations Assembly Tuesday, call-
ing for disarmament, control of the atomic
bomb including abolition of existing atomic
weapons, control of the atomic bomb including
abolition of existing atomic weapons, and for
an accounting of all troops of the Allied nations
in non-enemy alien countries. Molotov also en- .
umerated what he considers the chief failures of
the Security Council, and reiterated Russia's in-
sistence on retaining the veto power as basic to
international accord.
In the course of his speech, Molotov assailed
the philosophy he finds behind the, United
States' position regarding control of atomic
energy. Emphasizing the need to destroy exist-
ing atomic military resources (which the
United States has so far refused), he termed
this "grim philosophy" suggestive of "pro-
found distrust in the peaceful methods of fur-
ther development of one's own country" and
of some "pessimistic lack of confidence in
one's own strength inasmuch as the prospect
of peaceful competition between states and
social systems are concerned.",
Reports of the speech were of course top news'
all over the world. And in handling the story,
such politically divergent papers as the New
York Herald Tribune, the Detroit Free Press and
The Daily emphasized the points in the first
paragraph above.
It is shocking, therefore, to read the.venerable
New York Times on the subject. Ironically
enough the Times seems to show the very "pro-
found distruts" Molotov is deploring. According

THERE'S COMMOTION aplenty in those us-
ually restrictive sidearm benches in our third
floor Angell Hall class this week.
By the time we get up there, we're usually
not very good natured anyway; and we guess
the rest of the class must feel the same way,
because we've observed the following mute ex-
1. Neighbor Left jabs a newly innoculated
and very tender arm.
2. Victim draws himself up, contemplates
briefly, and crosses the very next "t' with tre-
mentous vigor, jarring the equally sore arm
of Neighbor Right.
3. Neighbor Right, too, has an attack of
spleen; and finding his assailant's ailing member
out of reach, operates on the puffy red target
to HIS right. So on down the line, ten pin style.
Eye for an eye ethics may not dovetail too
neatly with academic protocol, but there's noth-
ing like a breath of old Babylon to liven up the
stuffy classroom atmosphere.

sion within the UN in order that a unanimously
agreed to solution might be adopted.
Mr. Baruch still refuses to accept an Inter-
national Treaty unless the veto power is ex-
cluded from any atomic questions. He asks,
in' other words, that the Soviet Union accept
majority decisions regarding control.-It is ob-
vious that such a solution destroys big power
unity and acts only in favor of the Anglo-Amer-
icans. It is Mr. Baruch who is being recalci-
trant. Other members of the Atomic Control
Commission are willing and anxious to find a
solution acceptable to both nations, provided
there are teeth in it.
In his'indictment of the economic imperialist,
Mr. Molotov covered the whole gamut of Inter-
national relations. He spared no criticism of
the failure of making the Trustee system an
actuality. He made special mention of Church-
ill as one of the leaders in the movement to
sow dissension between the east and the west.
He asked that the United Nations carry out
the original Soviet sponsored proposal that the
number of troops held in all nations which were
not enemies of the allies during the war be pub-
lished. He asked that the World Federation Of
Trade Unions representing some seventy million
working people be given greater hearing on the
Social and Economic Council. He reiterated
throughout his speech the necessity for greater
unity between the big-powers, without which
the peace organization could not last.
This is the first time since the UN was
inaugurated that a Big-Four leader has spok-
en without restraint. This is the first time
that a concrete plan of action has been placed
before the people of the world, which includes
an immediate proposal for dis-armament.
Mr. Byrnes and Mr. Vandenberg have been
given a "real" peace proposal. They can no
longer plead Soviet intransigence. Mr. Molotov
has opened the way for free and frank discus-
sions pertaining to peace; and, above all, he
has sincerely pleaded for unanimity, without
which all discussions become hopeless.
-E. E. Ellis

A ddress

to the Times' first paragraph on the story, Molo-
tov . . . "rejected categorically the United States
plan for international atomic control . . ." in
their eight-column headline, Molotov "SCORNS
U.S. PLAN." Eight columns of the three line
headline are given to Molotov "DENOUNCES
Soviet Foreign Minister had used a recent Bar-
uch statement as an example of anti-Russian
"grim philosophy."-
The Times' biased handling of the Molotov
speech is made explicit when the "color" story
it used to indicate "reactions" to the speech are
compared with a similar story in the conserva-
tive Herald Tribune. The Times finds "Delegates
Upset by Speech, See Marxist Fear of Clash."
The Tribune played up remarks of Warren Aus-
tin, leader of the U.S. delegation to the Assem-
bly. " 'Smart and Tough' says Austin, Liking
Parts of Molotov Speech."
According to the Associated Press report in
The Daily, Molotov attemped to secure immed-
iate discussion of disarmament proposals, yet
The Times "notes" that his proposals include
no "offer of inspection to make the disarma-
ment plan effective."
Certainly if the "pessimistic lack of confi-
dence with which the New York Times greet-
ed the Molotov speech had been characteris-
tic of the general reception, the news today
would be as chilly as The Times itself.
It is regrettable that the nation's leading pa-
per (now flown to the hinterland every morn-
ing) can not extend its austere non-partisan
coverage of such relatively insignificant mat-
ters as New York State gubernatorial elections
to proceedings of the United Nations.

Progressive Views
To the Editor:
IN REPLY to the querulous Mr. Davis, let me
say that it is a pleasure to read sincere, un-
diluted opinions if only in a college daily. If
the honest, considered opinions of The Daily
writers happen to result in liberal, progressive
views Mr. Davis must respect them even if he
disagrees. If he is so intent on seeing the other
side of the picture he has only to read any of
the 99% of the unbiased, impartial, honest U. S.
papers, which range from conservative to re-

Public Address System
To the Editor:
O MR. DAWSON'S letter in yesterday's Daily
should be added the story of that lecture in
the Rackham Amphitheater two years ago in
the midst of which the Custodian brought in
various pieces of a public address system and
laid them at the feet of the distinguished guest-
speaker. I was present, and so I know that the
University does possess a public address system;
and a speaker of course can use it if he knows
how to put it together and make it work. This is
a considerable advance over the situation three
summers ago when a lecturer in the Natural
Science Auditorium paced back and forth shout-
ing like a lighthouse keeper to a tender in the
fog. I heard what he said, but what he said was
not what he wanted to say; he said what he
thought would carry. As his successor in the
series I had to provide my own public address
system. The public address system recently em-
ployed seems to have been a booby trap.

To the Editor:
IT IS unfortunate that Walt Hoffman has
chosen to misunderstand a recent letter to the
Editor regarding Communists in liberal organi-
By a trick of pseudo-logic he deduces:
1. That Mr. Tomkins is anti-communist.
2. That the Hearst press. is anti-communist.
Ergo; the Hearst press and Mr. Tomkins are
in complete accord. By this same reasoning we
can say: monkeys have tails, therefore anything
with a tail is a monkey. Hence we have the

corollary used by communists, stating that all
reactionaries are anti-communists. Derivation-
if you are an anti-communist, you are a reac-
tionary. Q.E.D.
It is also unfortunate that he chose to pass
over, in typical Ciceroian "praeteritio" the ex-
treme perfection in allegory of a Ciceroian quo-
In this analogy, Catiline, who, as a member of
the Senate and by its statutes entitled to free-
dom of speech and all other adjunctive freedoms,
has used his position and prerogatives to con-
spire to overthrow the Senate and all its tradi-
tions, and to purge the senators. Unbridled and
audacious, he even planned to murder Cicero.
The plan was well known to Cicero for a long
time before its proposed hour of execution, but
thinking this merely a tempest in the teapot, and
quite innocuous, he let the revolutionary go un-
challenged. When he found his own name on
the list of those proscribed ad mortem, he held
forth his renowned exposition.
Is it liberal to wait till the last moment, until
the proscription, to take action?
O Tempora, 0 Mores!

P LAY Production last night staged "Both Your
Houses," Mr. Maxwell Anderson's somewhat
vague interpretation of the early 30's.
"Both Your Houses," we're told, won the
Pulitzer Prize in 1933-a notoriously tough
year for almost everyone.
Despite the quality of the opus, a group of new
faces in the Speech Department kept the audi-
ence interested throughout.
Charles Benjamin, fresh out of the Marine
Corps, proved to be a competent if not at times
.stirring protagonist, playing Allan McClean.
John Babington, was outstanding as Solomon
Fitzmaurice, as was Beth Laikin, who portrayed
the wily secretary, Bus.
Richard Stewart did admirably with the most
difficult character in the play, Simeon Gray. Al-
bert Mellen, and Strother Martin added good
supporting roles, while Nancy Webb displayed an
interesting walk.
Credit director William P. Halstead for taking
Mr. Anderson's footlight politicians and making
them look and sound real.
