By IRVING JAFFE
WASHINGTON-This half northern, half
southern city is beginning to awake
from a long, slumbering summer and a
golden Indian summer. Sharp winds are
reminding Washington that it soon will
feel the same sting of winter as the cities
to the north which are its half brothers.
Congressmen returning to Washington
for the special session which begins next
week are becoming more fully aware that
their long restful summer vacation was
not shared by the peoples of Europe,
where starvation has been a persistent
enemy. After nearly four months of lei-
sure, with no need to fear for the full-
ness of their stomachs or the warmth of
their bodies in the coming winter, the
lawmakers are finally sitting down to
underwrite emergency aid for those who
have reason to fear the winter.
But apparently many of the congress-
men still have not dared to face another
important fact of international life. A
number of the lawmakers still feel that
"political strings" should be tied to our
overseas assistance program, that we should
use foreign aid as a means of discouraging
soeialistic economies and boosting the cause
of private enterprise.
It is one of the great naivetes of this
country, one of its outstanding provin-
cialisms this belief that private enterprise
is' a sanctified and universally hallowed
concept.
Senator Ferguson of Michigan some time
ago urged that we send our aid directly to
private businesses abroad instead of to
governments, in order to deal a blow at
Europe "to assume, as conditions permit,

planned, sbcialistic economies and at gov-
ernment ownership of industrial facilities.
Other lawmakers 'have been urging the
same kind of approach.
State Department officials are known to
oppose the attaching of any political strings
to our aid program. And the President's
Committee on Foreign Aid, headed by Com-
merce Secretary Harriman, has just urged
that our foreign assistance program not
carry any conditions relating. to the eco-
nomic methods of the receiving countries,
ts long as those methods have been de-
rided upon "in a free and democratic man-
ier."
But on Capitol Hill there is no such
unanimity on the need to keep our aid
free of any political conditions. Repre-
sentative Herter of Massachusetts, who
has been directing the activities of the
House Committee on Foreign Aid, said
that (as of the time of this writing) no
decision had been reached on the question
of political conditions. But a provisional
report of the committee declared we
should encourage private enterprise in
the activities which have devolved on
government in the present crisis."
This recommendation assumes, by the use
of the words "in the present crisis," that
the basic economic orientation of other na-
tions should be a private enterprise orienta-
tion, that any deviation from a full private
enterprise economy can be justified only by
the existence of an emergency. It is time
some Congressmen realized there is nothing
holy about our present economic system,
and that other nations perfectly well may
decide, and have decided, that free enter-
prise capitalism cannot serve their needs.

NIGHT EDITOR: DICK MALOY

Vet Pay Squeeze
E ACIH MAIL brings more checks to the
veterans on campus, most of which are
welcomed with cheers, but later on, when
the board bill is paid, come the moans -
moans because the government allowance
is just not enough.
Last year at this time quite a number
of G.L Bill students were making the $65
stretch over a month's time. But prices rose
steadily, fewer and fewer students could
make their checks last, and by spring there
was a high howl, "Why doesn't Congress
give us more money?"
Congress was in a poor position for a
while. Then came summer vacation and
the pressure from the veterans was re-
lieved. And no bill was put through last
session.
But now that Congress is going to meet
again, the veterans, with still higher prices
goading them, will be putting even more,
pressure- on their Congressmen. And just to
equalize the pressure all the economy-mind-
ed citizens are demanding that nothing else
be done that will tend to augment infla-
tion, such as increasing allowances to vet-
erans.
The Congressman is again standing in
the middle, with inflation on one side and
the veterans on the other.
If he, the Congressman, doesn't increase
the allowance there will be that many less
trained citizens in the country. And the in-
cumbent senators and representatives will
lose votes.
If they do increase it inflation will be
furthered by putting the strain of those
additional hundreds of millions of dollars
onto an already over-strained economy.
And votes will be lost.
What's the antswer for the Congressman?
He will probably decide, as he usually de-
cides when he's put in a bad spot, that com-
promise fis the best answer. He'll give a
ten dollar a month raise, where twenty is
asked, and hope both sides will be reason-.
ably satisfied.
And that is probably as good as can be
done. The veteran who has been getting
along on mustering-out pay, terminal leave,
and state bonuses will have a better chance
of making his money last through to his
degree, and something ressembling a con-
cession to economy will have been made.
And even a small raise will help.

Ioo oTBurning

THERE are no bonfires, heaped with books
thrown into the flames by storm troop-
ers lighting up the night sky here, but the
books are being burned in America today.
Textbooks which are critical of any
phase of our system are being censored or
banned from the schools; non-fiction ex-
posing fascistic elements and trends in the
United States are being buried under book
counters and hidden from public view; fic-
tion glorifying characters who would be
unpopular with the un-American Activi-
ties Committee is being suppressed; and
manuscripts dealing with various social
MOVIES

At the Michigan ..
DOWN TO EARTH, with Rita
worth and Larry Parks.

Hay-

"DOWN TO EARTH" is the latest musical
built around the tried if not true plot of
a Broadway show that must succeed, with
the inevitable troubles and love affair be-
tween director and star smoothing them-
selves out on the opening night. A new twist
is injected by Rita Hayworth's being not
just another hoofer, but the Goddess Terp-
sichore herself, indignantly returning to
earth to clean up a show that degrades the
Muses. For a Goddess, she is a rather brat-
ty mortal, but has herself a fine time flitting
around in a minimum of chiffon while tam-
pering with destiny. Larry Parks sings
(with his own voice) and finds out the hard
way that women, mortal or otherwise, can
be a problem. The show scenes and those
of the cloud land twixt earth and hereafter
are most enjoyable extravaganza, but the
dramatic scenes creak noisily.

At the State...
DUEL IN THE SUN, with Jennifer Jones
and Gregory Peck.
IN FINE Hollywood style, the ballyhoo for
"Duel in the Sun" utilized everything but
old Sol himself. And while they may have
had something to shout about, it is not
overly apparent. Considerably pruned for
conservative consumption, the Midwest ver-
sioi presents the semi-torrid story of Jen-
nifer Jones, as the half-Mexican beauty that
falls for the wayward and wicked rich boy,
Gregory Peck. Her subsequent sufferings
make a good case for mothers advising
young daughters. Also woven into the teem-
ing reels is the story of her mis-mated par-
ents, the railroads advance into the West,
an early Texas "kingdom" in land, and the
dramatic disintegration of a powerful fam-
ily plus sundry other items that could use
a telling of their own. Some very fine
supporting characterizations hold the story
together, and you get a large sized portion
of blood and thunder for your price of ad-
mission.
-Gloria Hunter
known Beethoven Seventh Symphony -
a work which only an unusual and al-

themes are finding it difficult to even get
a reading, let alone a publisher.
In California, two mathematics books were
accepted by the State Board of Education
only after extensive revision which included
the deletion of such passages as "one-third
of our people are poorly housed." Spoken
by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, this quotation
was censored out because "it gives a pathetic
picture of life in the U.S."
"The Elements of Economics" by Prof.
Lorie Tarchis of Stanford University, was
banned by the Coast Guard Academy and
a number of other colleges after Merwin
K. Hart, apologist for Franco and founder
of the native fascist National Economic
Council objected to it. According to Hart
it not only bears a "communist taint" but
is also "Keynesian!"
Recently "The Un-American Legion," A
startling documented expose of the Ameri-
can Legion hierarchy's collaboration with
the National Association of Manufacturers,
written by Justin Gray, former rifleman with
the 3rd Ranger Battalion and assistant di-
rector of the Legion's Americanism Commis-
sion, was rejected by Reynal and Hitchcock
who originally ordered and paid a substan-
tial advance for the manuscript. Subse-
quently, the book was rejected by Random
House, Harper's and Little, Brown & Com-
pany, one of them declaring, "So what!
Everyone knows the Legion is reactionary."
Another book, "Truth and the People"
by John Rogge, former Special Assistant
to the Attorney General, which traces the
growth of the fascist movement in the
United States, was turned down by numer-
ous publishing houses after the Viking
Press outbid all other firms and then re-
jected it.
Although Howard Fast's "Citizen Tom
Paine," "Freedom Road," "The American,"
and "The Unvanquished," each sold more
than a million copies, it is almost impossible
to purchase a copy of "Clarkton" his latest
novel which treats the action of a Commu-
nist in a strike situation sympathetically.
Despite the best-selling record of Fast, who
was recently convicted along with other
executive board members of the Joint Anti-
Fascist Refugee Committee for contempt of
the un-American Committee, Duell, Sloan
& Pearce only printed 5,000 copies of the
book because leading book distributors
threatened a boycott.
These cases illustrate the alarming ex-
tent of the present hysteria and fear
which has resulted in a self-imposed
"thought control." Probably the most
alarming aspect of the current situation is
the lack of indignation and concern by the
people. When the books were suppressed
and burned in Germany, Italy and Japan,
Americans flared with anger.
Today, as freedom of expression is slowly
being throttled here and the nation plunges
headlong down the road to totalitarianism
and war, the people of America have re-
mained silent and apathetic.
It is late but if the people recognize this
ominous threat to democracy and world
peace, the analogy between totalitarian na-
tions and the United States can be shattered.

Anerican Students
To the Editor:
AGAIN THIS QUESTION of in-
tolerance. What irks me is the
holier-than-thou attitude of some
students towards their classmates,
as shown in the recent letters to
The Daily regarding tile "poor
manners of the present college
generation. '
Just as it is not easy to crit-
icze your own family when you
do not know how other families
behave, it is Bard, I realize, for
most American students to com-
pare their classmates to the "good
conduct" standards because the
only standards they have are
their own, individual manners,
which is not enough. As a Euro-
pean I think that I can compare
Joe College to his counterpart
across the Atlantic, and I say
this. Over in Europe, when we
think of Americans, we visualize a
zany race of people, part Danny
Kaye, part Orson Welles, and
part Betty Hutton. What we find
here is different. We find a race
that uses more common sense
than we do. In colleges we find
the students muchl more polite
and courteous than our average
students. In the U.. the student
is far more mature and down-to-
earth, far more "respectable"
painfully correct at times!) plays
less pranks, is less exubeant,
hollers less, is more respectful,
has better all-around manners
than the average European stu-
dents. But, whereas in a few in-
stances some American students
adore being in the public eye,
most of them are very mild ex-
hibitionists. Call it inhibitions,
remnants of puritanism or what-
you-will. . . .
Of course there are exceptions.
But we deal with the majority
here. Also, allow me to say that
I neither criticize nor praise any-
thing. I merely state facts. Fur-
thermore this is not an attempt
to study of the American char-
acter or some American charac-
ters. This, as Kipling says, is an-
other story.

Maried Cheerleaders
To the Editor:
MAY I SUPPLY additional in-
formation to today's article
by Alice Brinkman "Ball State
Cheerleaders Meet 'U' Squad in
Swap Session" on front page? I
would appreciate it if you would
pass on the following info not only
to Alice Brinkman but also to
the Ball Staters.
"Mickey" and "Rockey" Howell
are rivaled by another married
cheerleading family. Roy and
Joyce Fisher are leading over
9,000 students at my former alma
mater, Iowa State College, Ames,
Ia., and I imagine there are other
married couples on college cheer-
leading squads in our country.
I will be glad to furnish Mr.
and Mrs. Fisher's address upon
request by anyone wishing to fur-
nish Ball State with the sad news.

Canadian Dollar
To the Editor
RE: "CANADIAN Currency" let-
ter printed November 7. I
believe Mr. Binkley is very poorly
informed as to present exchange
rates of American and Canadian
dollars.
As a nineteen year resident of
Canada, though I can't claim

Canadian birth - that's right,
Wisconsin-I feel that I am well
qualified to discuss this question.
I've traveled across the border
many, many times, even before
entering the U.S. army in 1943.
Each time there was the slight
inconvenience of currency ex-
change.
During several of the war years,

1!

the exchange value of Canadian
dollars was lowered until at one
time there was a difference of
eleven cents on the dollar. How-
ever, for almost two years now
the Canadian dollar has been re-
stored to parity with American
funds. That is, at any legitimate
currency exchange, you may ex-
change Canadian cash for Amer-
ican at a nominal service charge
of V2 a cent to 3 cents on the
dollar, depending on quantity.
Early this year, the Canadian
government became worried when
statistics showed a large increase
of Canadian spending in the U.S.
Money was flowing south in a
one-way tide. This caused some
speculation as to whether the
exchange values would again have
to be lowered to retard the trend.
This summer, however, American
tourist trade helped restore a bal-
ance, and no action was taken.
The Canadian dollar is worth
exactly one hundred American
cents.

No C:oeds
To the Editor:
WE ARE WRITING this to give
voice to a growing sentiment
among the rational male students
on the campus. This sentiment of-
fers a constructive solution to the
problem of promotion of profound
education, which is of basic im-
portance to a nation in need of
both humanitarianiand technical
leadership.
The underlying fallacy of the
American approach to knowledge
as represented here at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, is the coed-
ucational system. The theory be-
hind the system is perhaps sound,
but realistically it is a barrier to
progress. The only justification
for this system rests solely on the
social results it produces-te
poise acquired under normal con-
ditions of inter-relationship. But
these normal conditions do not
exist, therefore, the basis for the
system's existence has disap-
peared.
The current intolerable ratio
of men to women is not just
a temporary departure from nor-
mal; it is a concrete trend which
will grow in magniture with time.
And the social attitude of the fe-
male, fostered by this ratio, not
only represents a departure from
theory, but actually leads to mass
male frustration. She is as Cleo-
patra-her pomposity exceeded
only by her vanity. It is the
strange case of a persecuted ma-
jority
The solution is within reach
here in the State of Michigan,
where there are two major en-
dowed institutions of education.
The University, since it has the
facilities, should be limited to
male enrollment and dedicated to
higher learning of the same de-
gree as Harvard, M.I.T., Oxford,
and the other recognized leaders
in this field. The college up at
East Lansing could be made avail.
able as a "finishing school" for
those so inclined.

Indonesia
To the Editor:
AMBASSADOR Van Kleffens is
a well polished spokesman
for Dutch imperialism. He neg-
lected to give the other side-
the side of the people of Indo-
nesia. In fact, his whole attitude
is similar to the attitude which
apologists for British Tory .inter-
ests had in America during the
18th century, i.e., that the IL
donesians are a barbaric sort, the
leaders representing but a minor-
ity, and for the sake of peace
and justice, Dutch troops must
maintain order.

It seems inconceivable to Mr.
Van Kleffens that the Indonesian
people might like their freedom,
that they have tired of Dutch ex-
ploitation-exploitation equalled
only by British rule in India over
a period of centuries. He claims
that the leaders of the Indonesian
Republic are able to maintain
themselves in power only with the
arms which khe Japanese left. In-
deed! And who is fighting the
Dutch if it is not the great ma-
jority of the people? What stu-
dent of military science would ac-
cept such an explanation when
the people are using guerilla war-
fare: Why, if this is not a war
of liberation of the Indonesian
people, does the government of
India protest Dutch action and
refuse her the right to fly over
the Indian territory, as well as
tuse of Indian ports.
But further, Mr. Vandenberg, in
his response to the group which
had requested an interview con-
cerning use of American arms
in Indonesia, said he had no
knowledge of the fact. This was
his way of saying that he didn't.

cannot be interpreted as anything
but arrogance on the part of the

MUSIC

T HE RESULTS of conductor George Szell's
campaign to put the Cleveland Sym-
phony Orchestra on a par with the all too
few first . class American orchestras were
clearly evident at the concert Sunday night.
Schumann's short Symphony No. 4
opened the evening's program with a per-
formance little more than satisfactory,
however. Despite a lively, and surprising-
ly youthful orchestra, and more than
capable leadership, some parts of the sym-

Education, will speak on "Child
Growth and Development."
