Ex Post Facto
E STUDENT LEGISLATURE is on trial. It
is now involved in its first important action
seriously affecting the student body. I refer to
the legislature's organization of an exchange
of football tickets so that underclassmen who
either through error or fraud obtained seats in
upperclass sections can exchange their tickets.
There are several ethical implications in-
volved in the conduct of the legislature which
must not pass unnoticed. Of cgurse, those stu-
dents who received upperclass tickets through
fraud were morally in the wrong. But their lack
of scruples does not condone the high-handed
manner in which the legislature has acted.
The legislature was established last spring
by a grant of power from the student body. It
was established "to promote the general welfare"
of the student body. Matters such as the ticket
fracas should, therefore, properly fall within
its range of operations. However, it has estab-
lished a dangerous precedent in its handling of
the ticket exchange. The ruling requiring the
exchange has the characteristics of "ex-post-
facto" law. Students are to be prosecuted, ac-
cording to legislature threats, under a regulation
passed after they have committed an act, which
makes that act illegal. This type of legislative
maneuvering has never been permitted in Amer-
ican legal history, and there is no reason for
it to be tolerated here. Yes, some students acted
unethically, but a second impropriety is not jus-
tified by the first.
Students who participate in the exchange
program should be commended for their cooper-
ation, even though it may be motivated by fear
of a "foolproof" investigating system and dis-
ciplinary action. The fact still stands that the
Student Legislature has no ethical right to pros-
ecute "error" cases and no legal right to disci-
pline "fraud" cases.
ONCE UPON A FINE DAY in August some rep-
resentatives of the meat industry told the
Control Board that the contry's meat supplies
were quite adequate to fill the country's de-
mands . ..at reasonable prices.
So reasonable prices were re-imposed, in the
form of ceilings. And if you look hard at a meat
counter, you might be able to see some dog
It is true that there may be a temporary
shortage of animals ready for the slaughter
house. For this we may thank the gentlemen of
the meat industry who slaughtered almost ev-
erything but their own children during July
and August when ceilings were off.
But there is another consideration. The
meat that was processed during July and
August, but not consumed during that period,
seems to have disappeared completely. When
ceilings were restored, there must have been
a tremendous quantity of meat in cold storage.
It must still be there.
Another unhappy point is that the big pack-
ers have stopped buying livestock. They say
that they cannot get livestock at prices which
will permit them to comply with OPA regula-
ticns. In other words, they are being consistent-
ly outbid by buyers who buy livestock at prices
ever the OPA ceiling. The big packers must
have some inkling of an idea who buys live-
stock at black market prices. They have not,
as yet, helped OPA authorities catch the violat-
And then there's the possibility that the big
THE INTER-RACIAL Association would like
to issue an invitation to all students who
are interested in fighting discrimination to come
to their opening meeting Thursday night.
In the past few years this organization has
concerned itself primarily with the Negro prob-
lem, attempting to fight it wherever it existed
-on campus, in Ann Arbor, and in the country
at large. This year the group wishes to ap-
proach the whole problem of discrimination
with a much broader point of view.
IRA realizes that people with deep-seated
prejudices are not as prevalent on this campus
as in other parts of the country and t'hey'also
take into account that those they must fight
would never join an Inter-Racial Association.
IRA therefore proposes to discuss neans of
fighting discrimination so that those present
can find some means of eradicating racial pre-
ID RATHER BE RIGHT:
Hector vs. Elmer
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
THE STOP RUSSIA movement is splitting in-
to two branches. It is a little too early to
give these branches formal names, though un-
doubtedly they shall have them in time to come.
But it is not too early to begin to describe the
two main, rough divisions into which Stop Rus-
sia sentiment is falling.
Let us take the first one (we could call it
Elmer, say, for purposes of convenience) and
see what we can make of it: This is a grouping
of men and women who want to stop Russian
expansion, not because Russia is leftist, but
because Russia is a dictatorship. Mr. Joseph
Alsop of the New York Herald Tribune is a typ-
ical voice of this school; he has just proposed
that the United States give its support to all
vigorous, independent, leftist (but not Commun-
ist) movements throughout Europe, but to save
freedom; that we must build a front of freedom-
loving, even if radical, countries, requiring of
them only that they be democratic. Mr. Alsop
rests his case on the historic fact that Com-
munism has always had poor pickings in free
countries which were concerned for the social
welfare of their citizens; it has grown most
rapidly in the brutal, benighted, dictator-ridden
But there is another Stop Russia school.
(we could call this one Hector) which takes a
different view. This school is not going to
like Mr. Alsop. It is the school of those Ameri-
cans, many of them leading mid-western Re-
publicans, who hate leftism as much as they
do dictatorship; perhaps more; for, in the past,
as during Hitler's rise, dictatorship left them
cold, while leftism invariably makes them hot.
This is the school of those men who, with
enormous and proper sarcasm, ask the Russian
workman whether he has the right to strike;
but who when, after establishing this moral
base for their operations, turn around and de-
mand Federal legislation to put down strikes
in this country.
This is the school of those men who are
fatuously content with the present government
in Greece; it satisfies them because it is anti-
Russian, and they ask no more, overlooking the
point that it is so brutally undemocratic and
repressive that it is forcing Greek moderates
and liberals into the Communist party, if only
for the sake of having some kind of organized
IN THESE LAST few words we get a clue to
the futures of these two movements, Elmer'
and Hector; Hector is self-defeating. It pur-
ports to be interested only in human freedom
and progress, but, in our home debate, it shows
so grim a tendency to label mild liberals and
progressives as "Communists" that thousands
of plain Americans, who aren't Communists,
and who never want to be Communists, develop
a totally new sympathy for Russia, just because
Hector is against it. (This story, magnified a
thousand times, is the story of Greece today.)
American labor will not join with this grouping
in any crusade, because it doesn't trust it; not
for the same reason, will much of Europe.
What is foreshadowed, then, is a fight be-
tween Elmer and Hector; i.e., those who would
like to set up a free and progressive world,
as a counter-weight to Russia, will find they
must oppose not only Russia, but a great
many American Russophobes as well. The
foreign policy of this first group gives it an
internal, as well as an external, battle to fight.
Politicians who throw fits even at unemploy-
ment insurance are entirely incapable of stop-
ping Russia in the insecure Europe of today;
theirs is the special weakness of men who
want to stop time itself.
The West begins to play with the idea, not
merely of opposing Russia in Europe, but of
building something infinitely better; and if ever
our formal foreign policy takes up that line, we
shall see a good many Republicans who have
been talking about unity suddenly jumping off
that bandwagon as if it were a hot stove, and
using language not fit to be quoted in these
(Copyright, 1946, N.Y. Post Syndicate)
judice from the minds of those they meet who
are biased beyond reason.
The Association feels that there are many
groups on campus besides the Negro who
must fight the same racial prejudice wherever
they go. But to make this a truly Inter-Racial
Association the cooperation of every campus
group is needed. Racial- prejudice must be
attacked from every angle and must be traced
to its ultimate source.
But 'IRA can only be as strong as the people
behind it and that means a large membership
is necessary. There are many on campus who
were members before and even more who were
here and knew exactly what the group was try-
ing to accomplish. IRA asks those people; as
well as all new students who are interested in
fighting discrimination, to attend the meeting
Thursday night and help formulate our plans.
A Cad, Sir
To the Editor:
I THINK the student who wrote the article to
The Daily concerning the football tickets the
students get was a cad for his act. My, the foot-
ball games aren't for the students. Why does
he think the stadium was built to accommodate
80 thousand? There are only 15 thousand stu-
dents. I've been going to Michigan, off and on,
since 1941, and I never attend the games. I let
the "big boys" collect an extra three dollars, or
whatever it is, for my seat in the end zone. It
seems so important to them to get every dollar
they can. I certainly don't feel that we lowly
students should deprive them of their thirst-
Yes sir, I think anyone who feels that the
games are for students is a sad sack. This is
obvious, since the only ones who feel this are
-Robert W. Bagley
* * * *'.
IT IS QUITE CLEAR that The Daily's legis-
lative poker players, Walsh and Fink, are not
willing to call a spade a spade. That is partic-
ularly unfortunate since the chips are down and
we're both in the same game. The Daily's po-
sition, reflected by its spokesmen, is one of
criticism and sarcastic implication. I feel that
it has no right to assume this attitude at this
point. As a voice of the student body, The Daily
has been indifferent toward the actions or at-
tempted actions of the Legislature. It has never
seen fit to acquaint the campus with its govern-
ment except through the medium of straight
news stories. It has done little to support the
Legislature either editorially or by f e a t u r e
articles. Yet it seems justified in challenging
an enterprise which it should share with the
To add light to undue darkness, let me cor-
rect certain unfair statements made in yester-
day's (Sept. 24) column. One should under-
stand that the present government was inaug-
urated late last spring and of necessity had to
organize itself strongly internally to insure ex-
ternal success. This should explain the "little
or no action was taken last spring." However,
we undertook an ambitious program, a small
part of which was completed by a skeleton staff
this summer. Note the Book Exchange and the
complete fall social program as achievements.
To be sure, we do not stand on these as the
ultimate in accomplishment, but rather as an
indication of th! success of a new attempt at
If the best a critic can do is attack a com-
mittee which faces a mammoth job with total
sincerity, let him do so. The "floundering Aca-
demic Committee" has floundered with surpris-
ing stability. Reform is not instituted overnight,
but it seems that criticism is.
Writers Walsh and Fink both know that the
Legislature has on its agenda, for action this
fall, the concrete proposals they suggest in their
article. In light of this I cannot but feel that
they should have used the future tense instead
of the conditional in speaking of the Legislature.
Member, Student Legislature
To the Editor:-
LAST FRIDAY there was published a letter to
the editor showing the regrettable attitude
of a great part of the student body toward their
student government. The remark that. drew my
attention was: "I don't believe the student gov-
ernment will have the miajority support in any
move it makes to punish offenders."
The writer apparently is ready to jeer at
the student administrators before any action
is made. Is it fair of him to refuse them op-
portunity to show what they can do?
I would also be interested in knowing just
how much of his own spirit and energy the
writer has put into his school life - surely not
as much as that same student government he
is so eager to condemn!

Students are reminded of the fol-
lowing regulations which became ef-
fective with the beignning of the Fall
1) Students are expected to at-
tend classes regularly.
2) When the instructor considers
the number of absences excessive,
that is, when a student's absence
from a course endangers his satis-
factory progress, the instructor
should send a written report on the
case to the Administrative Board for
action. Freshmen and sopohomores
should be reported to the Chairman
of the Academic Counselors, Associ-,
ate Dean, 1220 Angell Hall.
