NIGHT EDITOR: DICK MALOY
Isolationism Dead?
IN HIS LECTURE here recently, Colin
Clark, the British economist, ventured the
opinion that American isolationism is a
thing of the past.
This is somewhat too thick to digest.
One is inclined to think that Mr. Clark
was merely being polite in the fashion of
a guests visiting a sick person, saying nice
things he does not mean.
The record of the first session- of the
present Congress points eloquently to the
fact that isolationism is not yet a factor to
be considered only in history textbooks.
This record shows that last May the
House tried to cut President Truman's
omnibus foreign relief bill from $350,000,-
000 to $200,000,000 and warned that this
would be the last such appropriation to be
considered for the past session of Con-
gress. At the same time then Under-
Secretary of State Dean Acheson warned
that the alternative to foreign relief was
economic collapse in Europe.
Nor does the record improve when one
observe that no suitable legislation was
passed to ease the suffering of Europe's Dis-
placed Persons. Neither does one find evi-
dence of concerted Congressional actibn to
implement the announced American policy
of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
Looking ahead, the spectre of a recal-
critant Congress dims the hopes of our
being able to carry out the Marshall Plan
simply because of economy-mindedness.
Or is it blindness that prevents men like
Senator Wherry from seeing people starv-
ing in Europe?
It would seem that the lessons of the war
which Mr. Clark sees so clearly do not ap-
pear boldly to Americans, although Mr. Clark
has the good taste to ascribe a capacity for

learning to us.

MATTER OF FACT:
Politburo Punches

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

Letters to the Editor...

IL

By STEWART ALSOPI
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18-The Politburo
rarely telegraphs its punches. There is
no really reliable way of forecasting the next
turni.ng in the devious road of Soviet for-
eign policy, since the American experts can
only fit together odd pieces of a jigsaw puz-
zle, with most of the puzzle missing. Yet if
these odd pieces of the puzzle are being cor-
rectly interpreted, there is a strong possibil-
ity that the planners in the Kremlin are
preparing a Sunday punch, to be ready for
delivery at the Foreign Ministers' confer-
ence next month.
The speculation -- and it is still only
speculation - runs something like this.
The ministers will meet as scheduled in Lon-
don on Nov. 25. The old familiar deadlock
will develop, with Soviet Foreign Minister
V. M. Molotov tirelessly reiterating his fav-
orite word, "Nyet." Then, just as the minis-
ters and their aids are packing to go home
in disgust, Molotov will ask for one more
conference. With an air of making an
enormous concession to break the dead-
lock, he will offer what the Soviets have
already offered in Korea - simultaneous
withdrawal of all occupying troops in Ger-
many.
It may seem odd that this prospect fails
to delight the American policy makers. It
has long been the first objective of Ameri-
can foreign policy to get the Red Army out
of Germany, and out of those Balkan states
in which the Red Army remains for the os-
tensible purpose of keeping open the lines
of communication to Germany and Austria.
Yet this American objective is of course
conditional on a peace treaty with Ger-
many, including real political and economic
unification of all zones, and supervised free
elections of a German government.
The astute planners in the Kremlin, on
the other hand, if they decide to use the
same tactical maneuver they have already
used in Korea, are expected to demand
a simple referendum of the German peo-
ple before the evacuation of all foreign
troops. Already, on the Soviet-controlled
radio in Berlin, there have been hints of
such a referendum. It would merely call
for a vote by the German people on wheth-
er foreign troops should be evacuated and
Germany unified. The Germans would, of
course, vote an overwhelming "yes" on
both questions. Then, if the Soviet pro-
posal takes the expected shape, the oc-
cupation armies would simply pull out,
leaving Germany to the Germans.
Naturally, before making any such offer,
the planners in the Kremlin would have
made very careful preparation for a possible
acceptance of the offer by the Western
powers. In northern Korea, before making
their evacuation offer, the Soviets estab-
lished an all-Communist "people's govern-
ment," consisting exclusively of willing So-
viet stooges. They also trained and equipped
a "Korean Red Army" of more than 200,
000 men. Thus, the Kremlin planners un-
doubtedly calculated, if the Americans were
ediots enough to accept their offer of sim-
ultaneous evacuation, all Korea would very
quickly become a Soviet bailiwick. If the
Americans refused, the offer would at least
be an effectvice propaganda device in Korea
and throughout the world.
There are reliable reports that precisely
the same sort of preparations are now in
progress in the Soviet zone of Germany. The
Communist control of the Soviet-sponsored
lWha 's on
ONE OF THE most stimulating female
vocalists to come along recently is Sarah
Vaughn. Possessor of an astonishingly wide
range, and a style which is already being

imitated widely, she shows a promise of
ranking along with the best. Unfortunately,
her talents haven't been exploited fully on
records as yet. One has the vague feeling
upon hearing them that the best is yet to
come. A good example of this is a fairly
recent Musicraft release "If You Could See
Me Now." The tune, an original by Tad
Dameron, is a pretty one and Sarah does
justice to it, even including some of her now-
famous vocal gymnastics, but the overall
effect is somewhat disappointing.
There had been much critical clamor late-
ly about Benny Goodman's apparent disin-
clination to make good records. Perhaps his
new Capitol side, "Iii Ya Sophia," is a partial
answer. Heartened by the presence of Mel
Powell on piano and Red Norvo on vibes,
he rises to heights, heretofore out of reach
on earlier Capitol efforts. It's light, tasty
and features the wonderful blend of clarinet
and vibes. Reverse is a fair Harry Warren
tune sung by bassist Al Hendrickson. Once
again the team of Powell and Norvo enhance
the disc's atmosphere.
One of Coleman Hawkin's best perform-
ances on records is now generally available
on Signature's "Sweet Lorraine" and "The
Man I Love." Everything is right about these
sides. Drummer Manne, pianist Heywood,
and bassist Pettiford complete the scintil-
lating quartet. Hawkins has seldom since
shown such felicity of phrasing and ideas

"Socialist Unity party" is now wholly un-
challenged. The unreliable deadwood has
been ruthlessly cut out. The Communists
have an iron grip on the labor unions
throughout eastern Germany, and the Com-
munist minority is on the offensive through-
out the western zones. Finally, the German
equivalent of the "Korean Red Army" is be-
ing prepared.
There are reliable reports that this new
Russian-created German army, whose core
is the German survivors of Stalingrad,
numbers at least 100,000 men, and prob-
ably far more. It is being kept in readiness
in south Russia, and its leaders, Marshal
Friedrich von Paulus and Major General
Walter von Seydlitz, are in Germany, at
the call of the Soviet commanders.
One hundred thousand men is not a great
army. Yet in case of the evacuation of all
foreign troops from Germany, even so small
an army would become. the only power in
what would otherwise be a complete power
vacuum. Working closely with the tightly
organized German Communist leadership,
this power could be expected shortly to as-
sure Communist, and thus Soviet domina-
tion of all Germany.
Thus the Soviets would have everything
to gain and nothing to lose. At the most,
they would gain Germany, which Nicolai
Lenin called the key to Europe. At the
least, they would gain an exceedingly ef-
fective propaganda weapon, in Europe as a
whole but especially within Germany. For if
the Western powers refused the Soviet of-
fer - as they must - the blame for refusing
to make a settlement in Germany could be
placed-on them. That :,s why those whohave
most closely followed Soviet tactics are con-
vinced that there may well be something in
the speculation about the forthcoming So-
viet proposal.

ETHER SKIES. Poems by
Boston: Atlantic - Little,
1947. 83 pages.

John Ciardi.
Brown & Co.

BECAUSE he regards poetry as a personal
record, John Ciardi's poems are simply
translations of his own experiences in terms
of mood, feeling and rhythm. Despite such
self-conscious subjectivity, his poems are
meaningful and worth reading, if only for
the articulate and concrete quality of ex-
pression to be found in them.
War is the central, thematic experience
with which Ciardi is concerned in this book,
first and foremost as a poet and only secon-
darily as a soldier. The first section, based
on events and impressions of days before
the war, ends with a poem that sets the
keynote for the rest of the book, and from
which the title is derived. The days of love
and peace behind him, the poet enters the
terribly simplified life of war, concluding
that:
The Innocent keep other skies.
We have much to learn.
The second section of the book, set to the
tune of "yes sir, no sir, no excuse sir . .,"
includes among others, poems on sending
home his civilian clothes, a night in camp-
town, a soldier's girl, a mechanic, a take-off,
briefing and a serial embarkation. Outstand-
ing in this section are "Reflections while
Oiling a Machine Gun," harking back to
school days and a lost religion, and "Death
of a Bomber," inwhich the visual and audi-
tory imagery is matched in perfection by the
rising and falling intensity of mood.
Experiences while flying combat on Sai-
pan produced the poems in the third sec-
tion, which reveals most completely the
poet's predominant concern and facile skill
in the use of words. Clean-cut, concentrat-
ed and original, these poems gain in af-
fective communication with every re-read-
ing, as all good poems should.
As to be expected, the war is still with the
poet long after the guns are silenced. The
poems in the fourth and final section of the
book express the usual searching restlessness
and sorrow to be found in any thoughtful
veteran's reflections on the most unforget-
table events in his life. The reader is more
likely to close the book with a deep and last-
ing impression of the beauty of Ciardi's ex-
pression than of the bluntly despaii;ing trend
of his thoughts.

MYDA?

ical. If thle head of an organiza-
tion is a Republican, does thei
organization automatically become
a "Republican Front" organiza-
tion? Then why does the allegedly
Communist chairman of MYDA
prove that MYDA is a "Commu-
nist Front" organization?
The policy of AYD (the organ-
ization to which MYDA is affil-
iated) is to accept into their
ranks any young person who
agrees with their program. And
anybody who in the opinion of
the membership shows himself (or
herself) to be a staunch fighter
for the AYD program, is eligible
for a position in the leadership.
What belief a person may hold
over and above the AYD program
is not the concern of the organiza-
tion. Thus if Ed Shaffer proves
himself an able fighter for the
program of MYDA, it does not
matter whether he is a Commu-
nist, Republican or vegetarian.
It seems to me that a paper like
The Daily should discuss problems
concerning student affairs in a
more objective fashion, and not
lower itself to vicious smear tac-
tics.

Reason (ible
To the Editor:
CAN'T UNDERSTAND the crit-
icism of Mr. Maloy's editorial.
From its very name, MYDA ap-
pears to be a political organiza-
tion. If a political organization
elects a known Communist to its
presidency then it is reasonable
to suppose that the membership
is sympathetic with Communist
principles. It would be unusual if
such an organization were to elect
a chairman whose views were
widely different from those of its
members.
If Mr. Shaffer chooses to accept
the presidency of an organization
which appeals to the public for
membership and support then his
politics should be made public
and anybody who knows what his
politics are is right in making the
information available to others.
It seems to me that the edi-
torial went no further than to
make available information which
the student body has a right to
have and to draw a reasonable
conclusion from the information.

To the Editor:
[AST NIGHT I ventured forth
with my wife to Hill Audito-
rium to see the flick being put on
under somebody's auspices. Ac-
cording to the advertisements and
the legend on our tickets, the
name of the offering was "Henry
V." Without this advance warn-
ing, I never would have known
what I was looking at.
Our seats were in the second
balcony, from which we could see,'
before the performance began, a
large limp sheet, criss-crossed by
sags and wrinkles, hanging in the
distant gloom. Some seventeen
minutes after the announced time
the lights dimmed, and our view
of the aforementioned sheet was
obscured by vague and colorful
flickerings. This apparently was
the beginning of the movie, but
no sound penetrated the sweaty
hush of the second balcony. Small
creatures dashed back and forth
upon the screen, and occasionally
a face hove into view as the sensq-
less mime unreeled- but never,
never did a still small voice speak
up and attempt to unravel the
mystery to those of us on high.
After an hour we left, jostled by
the crowd streaming out of Hill
Auditorium into the cool, clear
world of sound.
Since I have only been in this
acoustical nightmare once in my
life (and God willing, never
again), I cannot say that each and
every performance is lost upon the
poor souls who climb all of those
damn stairs to the second balcony
However I think that the organi-
zation or organizations that spon-
sor these great cultural offerings
might do worse than provide lip
readers with each and every ticket
to the second balcony - or if they
could possibly stand it, not even
sell tickets within that area.

riums.

THOSE WHO HOPED to hear a Voice
were well satisfied with the concert
given by Patrice Munsel last night. Through-
out a varied program, Miss Munsel demon-
strated a tremendous range and good vocal
control, particularly in different coloratura
passages. ,
The Metropolitan star was at her best
in the operatic selections by Massenet
and Verdi, although the songs by Poldowski,
Benedict, and R1achmaninoff were also well
done.
Her renderings of Mozart's "Ah! to so,"
and of the "Alleluja" from a motet falsely
attributed to Mozart, were marred, however,
by vocal exhibitionism'quite out of place in
this kind of music. Miss Munsel's voice
occasionally has a curious metallic quality,
unfortunately evident in these two opening
selections.
Stuart Ross,, pianist and Betty Wood,
flutist, adapted themselves well to Miss Mun-
sel's interpretations in spite of the fact that
she seldom sang in strict time-a customary
liberty.
Even more striking than the Voice was
Miss Munsel's stage personality, without

To the 'Editor:
IT IS LIKELY as our critic points
out that Russia is not willing to
transfer its sovereignty even in a
limited number of fields. Without
speculating on the reasons for
that, we should expect Russia to
remain so unti she finds it com-
pelling to do otherwise.
But suppose the rest of the world
coordinated their efforts to estab-
lish a world government (open to
Russia). If America's interim pol-
icy had been far sighted enough to
support the formation of widely
different (representative) political
systems those countries which are
now potential zones of expansion
for Russia (And which are likely
to fall out of America's zone of in-
fluence) could be expected to join.
Not only would further "gain" by
Russia be impossible bud several
deterrents to her complete seclu-
sion and to war as the only logical
outcome would have been created.
She would most probably need
economic cooperation in increas-
ing amount. (Export of agricul-
tural products and raw materials
import of manufactured goods and
;rant of capital.) She would be
unable to sustain an ideology
which would have lost its main
basis and justification.
The vicious circle of the increas-
ing antagonism between the two
blocks would have been done away
with insofar as a responsible world
government would have less in-
centive to downright hostility
while refraining from making con-
^essions. As a result, Russia might
gradually enter in a new political
phase.
This is not offered as a certain-
ty-rather as the only possible
alternative to a conflict.
Our correspondent will see that
there is no room left for the dis-
cussion of the respective merits of
war now, or later, and no justifica-
tion for presenting the problem
under that light. We are aston-
ished that the writer seriously
mentions the choice of a preventa-
tive, liquidation war resulting in
a "relatively bloodless victory for
the Western powers" without al-
luding to the moral issues in-
volved. He will find that none of
us ever believed world government
