THE MICHIGAN DAILY
UNDER THE COAL contract which John L
Lewis declared to be non-existent as'of las
Wednesday, miners were paid $1.18%/ an hou:
In a five day 54 hour week, a miner earne
$59.25. In a 40 hour week, he made $47.40.
Lewis has not stated any definite demand
But the general assumption is that he is look
ing to the time when the miner will return t
the 40 hour week and $47.40. He wants wag
raised to the point where in a 40 hour wee]
the miner will continue to earn $59.25.
$59.25 a week is far from an outrageous sun
as everyone who occasionally visits a grocer
store will tell you. $59.25 a week doesn't g
very far when milk is 22 cents a quart, eggs7
cents a dozen, and the cheapest cuts of meat 4
ONE OF THE outstanding problems to be face
by the 80th Congress of the United Stat
when it convenes on January 3, 1947, will k
that of housing.
In passing measures for veteran's preferen<
in housing, the 79th Congress gave existing Fe
eral housing agencies a great deal of money f
deal with the immediate problem, but the A<
ministration sponsored Wagner-Ellender- Ta
General Housing Bill providing for a long-ranE
federally directed program encouraging largi
scale development of moderate-rental housir
was allowed to die in the House Committee c
Banking and Currency after being passed I
Since a recent Bureau of the Census survey
of almost 12 million veterans shows that th4
average veteran cannot afford more than $4
for rent or more than $5,500 for a house, it
is essential that the Nation's builders pro-
duce huge quantities of homes and apartment
at moderate prices or rentals.
In order to meet the tremendous needs of ti
middle and lower income groups for low co
housing, financial aids to private enterpri
must be provided which will make such buildir
attractive and profitable.
Inasmuch as the Wagner-Ellender-Taft B
contains a series of aids to private enterpri
which would enable it to fulfill the housing r
quirements of the great middle and lower it
come markets private enterprise has never bee
able to meet alone, passage of the bill by tl
80th Congress would serve to overcome manyc
cents a pound. To say nothing of clothing prie-
st es. It gets cold in Pennsylvania.
r. Whatever we may think of Lewis' methods,
d we cannot deny that the miners are entitled to
the raise he obviously wants. To send Lewis to
jail will not solve any problem. It will only cre-
s. ate more, for the entire CIO conceivably might
- go out in sympathy strikes.
to The poor have large families. Many men with
es small families have been quitting Washington
k, and government posts because they could not
live on $10,000 a year. Congressmen have voted
n, themselves a raise; they now get more than
ry $10,000 a year.
;o In a 40 hour week under the now non-existent
75 contract, a miner would make $2,464.80 a year.
40. --Eunice Mintz ,
the obstacles retarding our present housing pro-
Under the provisions of the W.E.T. Bill, the
Government would guarantee a minimum re-
turn on investments in large-scale building.
Thus, insurance companies, banks and other
firms would be encouraged to enter the rental-
building field-a field on which many veterans
have pinned their hopes for adequate housing.
Other provisions of the bill provide for ex-
pansion of FHA insurance of loans for new con-
struction from the present 90 per cent to 95
per cent, Federal assistance to communities to
provide 125,000 units of low-rent public housing
for four years to persons who cannot afford pri-
vate housing, technical and research aids to
help reduce the cost of housing, and Government
aid to communities in clearing and improving
blighted slum areas.
While under consideration by the 79th Con-
gress, most of the opposition to the W.E.T.
Bill stemmed from the fact that opponents
erroneously considered it solely a public hous-
ing measure devoid of aid for private enter-
prise. Nothing could be further from the truth
for the bulk of the bill is designed to stimu-
late and help private enterprise to reach a
greater part of the housing market than it
has thus far been able to do.
In the-final analysis, the General Housing Bill
is not an omnipotent panacea to the nation's
housing problem, but rather a carefully formu-
lated program capable of benefiting all Ameri-
On Unseating Bilbo
Although I disagree completely with the views
held by Senator Bilbo and although I have al-
ways fought race prejudice in all its vicious
forms, I am against the present move contem-
plated by the Republicans to prevent Bilbo from
taking his seat in the new Congress.
In the first place, the action would serve to
strengthen greatly Bilbo's hand in Mississippi.
He could then say to the voters back home:
"See. What did I tell you? The 'damnyankees'
have denied me my rightful seat in the Senate."
If a new election were called, Bilbo would hold
himself up to the voters as a persecuted martyr
and would be swept back into office.
In the second place, it is a very dangerous
precedent for the Senate to refuse to seat any
elected representative because of his views, even
though those views be contrary to democratic
Senator Pepper, when he was in Ann Ar-
bor, said that he would be against ousting Bil-
bo because he was afraid that those who did
not like his (Pepper's) views would want him
ousted next. Senator Pepper was right. If
the Senate refused to seat one man because
of his views, it would not hesitate to unseat
Senator Bilbo undoubtedly did foment racial
discrimination in the Mississippi Democratic
primary last July as charged, but the way td
combat discrimination is to make laws against
it, not to gag those who unfortunately believe
in it. In our quest for tolerance, we cannot af-
ford to become intolerant even of those who
preach intolerance. If we do, wp will be de-
feating our very purpose.
Congress is supposed to represent the Amer-
ican voters, and, sad commentary that it is,
Mr. Bilbo does represent the majority of peo-
ple who vote in Mississippi. . It is true that
all of the people are not allowed to vote in
Mississippi, but the way to correct this is not
for Congress to deny Bilbo his seat but for it
to get busy abolishing the poll tax and the
We cannot beat Bilbo by taking away his right
to speak and to hold office, however much we
might like to. We can only beat him by fight-
ing race prejudice, through the democratic
methods of free discussion. To this end let us
use all the resources and energies at our com-
"Whoever knew truth to be bested in an open
THERE IS A longing for that grasp on reality
which will be commensurate with the blood,
sweat, and tears of our immediate past. The
students in our classes at deep problems of his-
tory and infinity and counselees seeking to un-
derstand situations of their own peculiar selves,
are not play boys; nor are they practical men
superficially anxious to find the right profession.
They are such seekers as find that few themes
are profound enough to satisfy.
With such a generation of students how shall
the church reinforce the University and the
classroom serve the altar?
Tradition has its contribution to make for
it gives youth a .cultural structure. "It does
not matter that the young men now throng-
ing the University are thinking of secular hon-
ors and training for world power...these stone
fortresses proclaim their ancient purpose, and
one can imagine them inhabited by scholars
who in silent isolation are carrying on the
sacred quest . . . Oxford is a creation of the
Church." .In his STUDENT'S DIARY so wrote
the late Paul Elmer More, scholar, author,
and a great literary force by means of the
INDEPENDENT, the NEW YORK EVENING
POST, and THE NATION of which he was
In Oxford religious faith stimulated the in-
tellect and encouraged the life of reason and
young More by that tradition was sustained and
The University of Michigan, to the general
public seeming to be so far from the sanctions
of religious faith, has a tradition nearer to that
of the great British student center than to any
of the vast agencies of commerce, government,
or industry which engage our people beyond
But tradition alone does not make a Uni-
versity nor can the silent influences of great
former scholars satisfy inquiring minds. Into
that structure, somewhat like the vitalizing
sap of the growing plant in spring, must flow
the creative spirit of hundreds of faculty
persons who, because they live out on the
rim of the known, can make youth engage
in the quest for truth.
Let none of us draw heavy lines of demarkation
between the sacred and the secular. When Pas-
teur, amzong those sheep in France, predicted
by his laboratory experiments freedom from
deadly bacteria in the milk which millions of
babies would drink thereafter, he was erasing
that line. It is the business of scholarship to
press the sacred beyond-and transform the
secular. Here then, is the two-fold challenge to
religious leaders. Can we get our youth to see
and feel the whole life as God's domain? Also
can we inspire the genius within every growing
person to keep clear the vision as did Paul El-
mer More? From his desk for half a century
he interpreted the inner motivations of men as
the will of God and fought in the ethical battles
on many fronts for goodness itself and the love
of virtue for its own sake. 'Following such a
struggle as has been made in our decade for
freedom from Fascism, no less can be called
either religious or Christ-like. (See "The Christ
of the New Testament").

JOHNNY Guarnieri, All The Things You Are,
Carioca(Majestic): Two piano solos by a much
under-rated artist. Guarnieri, an ex-member of
both the Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw bands,
plays competently both jazz and classical mu-
sic. On All The Things he combines the jazz
idiom with Eighteenth Century fugal concep-
tions and, amazingly enough, builds something
that is quite listenable.
ONE BASS HIT (Parts I and II), That's Earl
Brother, Oop Bop S'Bam (Musicraft): Here
are two currently available records that mirror
the genius of Trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Be-bop
jazz as played by. its foremost virtuoso, Dizzy
Gillespie, represents a new and exciting trend
in contemporary jazz music. This progressive
jazz form is based on the use of more or less
revolutionary harmonic conceptions, intricate
and unusual phrasings, and a violence and
tenseness that is never, found in "purist" jazz.
Use of whole-tone intervals and progressions,
unorthodox chord extensions, frequently minor
sevenths with associated minor ninths played
in unexpected places and in unique progres-
sions, are some of the characteristics of be-bop
Jazz. Gillespie's melodic line can never be an-
ticipated and his solos are full of startling turns
and unexpected embellishments of his own cre-
ation. Listening to Dizzy is really an intellec-
I think that Dizzy Gillespie is great. I feel
that he plays a lot more horn than Bix or Louis
ever did. His technical facility is extraordinary,
his range tremendous. Althouglit this statement
may seem inconsistent with objective criticism,
I feel that progressive futuristic jazz of this
type is vastly more interesting, more stimulat-
ing, and better music than the so-called "purist"
jazz. Dave Tough, who is no "square," calls
Dixieland jazz "harmonically infantile, devoid
of embellishments and interesting chord con-
nections and, all in all, scaled to the level of
musicians with meagre technique." Will any-
one rise to the defense?"

The Roosevelt I Knew, Frances Perkins, Viking
Press, 396 pages.
ANYONE INTERESTED in politics and great
people will find "The Roosevelt I Knew" an
illuminating book. Those looking for style will
be disappointed; the style is rather awkward,
there is no subtlety, and the coherence is rather
But as a rambling account of Roosevelt and
The Roosevelt Era, it is good. This is not
properly a biography; it is admittedly a bias-
ed account of Roosevelt taking in only the
last thirty-five years of his life-the years in
which Miss Perkins knew him. Rather than a
biography, this is a book which traces the de-
velopment of Roosevelt from a dull pompous,
rather unpromising, young politician to the
great president with his winning personality,
his love for all kinds of people, and his pro-
gressive ideas-at once, an extremely complex,
sophisticated personality and a simple, naive
Miss Perkins vividly shows the cause and the
unfolding of each step in the advance of this
great character. She attributed his spiritual
force to his seemingly disastrous paralysis-in
fact, she stated that it was probably the best
thing that could have happened to him. He
achieved determination of purpose, a humility,
and a sympathetic understanding of human
problems which before this disaster he was al-
most completely devoid of. These were the qual-
ities which endeared him to the common man.
This maturation which continued until his death
seems worth reading because of this unique sym-
pathetic portrayal of Miss Perkins' friend and
boss. This is a view which only Miss Perkins can
give. This is Roosevelt as seen by the woman
who knew him perhaps better than any other
except Eleanor and his mother. She worked with
him as a friend and an associate before his
great development and almost constantly to his
