NIGHT EDITOR: FRED SCHOTT
Eisler Ban
EFORE THE INEVITABLE, and justified,
furor over the Eisler-Marzani ban
breaks over campus, it might be well to ex-
amine the circumstances behind their pro-
posed appearance.
The entire plan was engineered by the
avowed Communist MYDA chairman Ed-
ward Shaffer as a publicity scheme. Before
the University had taken any st'ep to pro-
hibit Eisler and Marzani from speaking here,
Shaffer made plans to institute legal action
against the ban he knew would come. He
revealed these legal plans to a Daily re-
porter.
Publicity-hungry Shaffer knows that
this issue will fill The Daily's news pages,
editorial and letters columns for days.
The story will also be bandied back and
forth in metropolitan papers and on the
national wire services. Thus Shaffer. and
his Communist pals ca again play their
dearly-loved roles of the martyred lib-
eral-.
Shafer is mighty adept at this kind of
scheme. It was he who engineered the Hill
Auditorium picket line fiasco which was also
a cheap publicity stunt.
After taking a look at the background
of the issue, let's consider the University
ban. This ban, of course, can not be con-
doned. Instead of constantly being put
on the spot by such stunts, the Univer-
sity should promptly overhaul their re-
strictions on campus speakers.
Free speech is one of the fundamental
concepts embodied in the Bill of Rights. In-
stead of coming forth with unsatisfactory
explanation for refusing campus facilities
to a speaker of doubtful background, the
University should throw its facilities open
to all. Instead of letting banned speakers
and their promoters play the martyr role,
it would be far better to let students hear

the controversial figures and draw their
own conclusions.

ON WORLD AFFAIRS:
Conference
By EDGAR ANSEL MOWRER
ONDON-How is the Four Power Con-
ference in London going?
Ask the members of the American dele-
gation or the British Foreign Office and
they will answer "on schedule" or "just as
expected" or even "satisfactorily."
Ask the ordinary citizen in Paris or Lon-
don and the answer is startlingly different.
"Monsieur Molotov-what a wonderful
diplomat" a French Communist workman
exclaimed. His opinions happens to be
that of many other Frenchmen who view
Molotov's game with dismay but have to
admire its skill.
"We have all the cards but Molotov takes
all the tricks," a British banker ruefully re-
marked yesterday.
Marshall pays the piper but Molotov calls
the tune--every time, an Italian correspon-
dent exclaimed.
Two months ago the American experts
were quietly announcing that the skillful
American diplomacy had thwarted the Rus-
sian schemes of expansion. One American
commentator bravely announced that with
the Soviets on the defensive and Europe
threatened by neo-Fascism, the United
States could easily secure the evacuation
of all troops from Europe.
Obviously these gentlemen were right
in so far as had become apparent, for the
United States holds most of the big cards
in the diplomatic game against Russia.
Unhappily it doesn't matter what cards
you hold unless you know how to play
them. Molotov plays his cards well and so
far has taken all the tricks.
In order to realize the full extent of the
Soviet successes we need only to re-examine
the Soviet aims-now transparent. They
are:
First, to ruin the Marshall plan.
Second, to prevent the splitting of Ger-
many.
Third, to convince the Germans that the
Soviets are their only true friends.
Fourth, to disgust the near-sighted Amer-
ican Congress with Europe and turn their
resentment away frog. the Soviet Union
and against the French and Italian peasants,
workmen and "weak governments'
Fifth, to communize Germany and, after
Germany, Europe.
Considerable progress has been made to-
ward all these goals.
Don't the American and British dele-
gates see what is going on? Yes and No.
They seem to feel that this conference is
the important thing. So long as they are
making no further concessions to Soviet
imperialism all is well. Actually they are
losing everywhere. Marshall and Bevin
seem to be hypnotized by three fears.
First, that Germany will really be di-
vided. It is known that one section of the
American delegation believes that such a
division will open the door to a new war.
The fact is, with the world hopelessly split,
a divided Germany offers about the only
chance of preventing a new German war-
probably on the Soviet side.
Second, the two Anglo-Saxons seem afraid
lest the Germans will think we are less their
friends than are the Russians and go Com-
munist.
Third, Marshall and Bevin do not wish to
assume the responsibility for the failure of
this conference. Actually I suspect the aver-
age man does not care two cents how long
we continue to flog a horse which he sus-

pects is dead.
Knowing his adversaries' fears Molotov
plays them as a skilled fisherman does a
well-hooked trout.
le shamelessly flatters the German
people. He first raises obstacles then at
the last minute lets out enough line to
keep the conference going. He skillfully,
though unsuccessfully, tries to get his
adversaries to promise not to unite their
German zones ,while the negotiations are
continuing.
Marshall and Bevin need only to notice
what Molotov wants to be sure of what is in
their interest. Since the Russians want a
united Germany, we should fight shy of it.
Since he wants to prolong the conference, we
should insist on decisions. Since he hopes
we will not actuate the Marshall Plan or
unite the three zones, we should immediately
come to an agreement with the French and
Bene-Lux on the Ruhr and start Europe go-
It is now apparent that Marshall and Be-
vin must pull themselves together and cease
dancing to Molotov's tune. Otherwise this
London feast may turn out to be the funeral
of Occidental hopes.

(auS the black inarket had it all?" Only
with butter near a dollar a pound, we are
producing and eating less of it, per capita,
than at any other time in the last twenty-
seven years. The new look is a dull look,
a myopic look. It can see the end of its nose,
but, beyond that. everything blurs.
There was something sharp, almost eagle
like, in the old look, when we actually looked
to see how the people of the republic were
eating. There is something grubby about
rationing, no doubt, but there is something
proud. too. The new look is saucier but it
isn't as proud. The new look is a look the
other way.
The new look is a smug look. The old
look was an interested look; it was con-
tinually registering when it was confront-
ed by tenant farmers who wanted to own
their own land or by city dwellers on a
substandard diet, or by would-be home-
owners who longed for places of their own.
Maybe the old look was a little tense, but
it saw a lot; it saw people.
The new look sees words and phrases; it
proclaims that all these problems and a lot
more, will be taken care of by natural pro-
cesses. The new look is patched with blind
spots. It does not notice when city health
officers (as in New York) report that ex-
pectant mothers are having serious health
difficulties, because they cannot afford pro-
per food to maintain the natural processes
going on within them.
The new look is a glance at the tips of
one's fingernails.
The new look is a suspicious look. It con-
tinually suspects and expects disloyalty.
It is clouded with doubts of those around
it in a way in which the old look hardly
ever was. There was a certain air about
the old look, as of a man walking in day-
light on a broad highway, and there is a
certain air about the new look, as of one
venturing through a dark alley, and keep-
ing his fingers crossed for luck until he
gets to the end of it.
The old look used to walk through a new
public housing without any fear that the
fiercely proud people in it.were secretly dis-
loyal to their new plumbing and their bright
new kitchens; the new look hurries by the
overcrowded flats and has dark thoughts
about the impatient people within.
The new look is a defensive look. Its
wearers say plaintively that ours is the
best system and they say it over and over.
When we had the old look we hardly ever
said it but we knew it; we knew it the way
you know any piece of mnaehinery is good,
by using it. We didn't have to search our
souls about where we were going, be-
cause we were so visibly on our way; you
could use contour-ploughing hillsides and
new waterpower dams as direction mark-
ers.
Maybe the new look would lose some of
its defensiveness if we began to move again,
toward adequate shelter, food, clothing for
all our people. Maybe Communism, for all
its aggressiveness, would cease to be the
menace it now appears, if we began to go
again. We'd be harder to hit if we were
on the move. It's the sitting bird that's the
easiest target.

Praise
DRAMA CRITICS to the contrary, we
think that the Gilbert and Sullivan So-
ciety's "Mikado" was a swell show and that
sincere congratulations are in order for its
entire cast as well as its directors, Prof.
Harry Allen and Rex Wilder.
The warm and enthusiastic applause and
curtain calls that followed the "Mikado's"
final performance Thursday night proved
conclusively that the all-student show has
lost none of its traditional appeal for both
students and townspeople.

The small flaws in the production were
more than offset by the spirit and en-
thusiasm that flowed out over the foot-
lights. We overheard one old timer tell
his lady friend that "There's more pep in
those kids than I've seen in a professional
show in a long time."
The success of "The Mikado" as well as
the enthusiastic receptions accorded in the
last year to Soph Cabaret, JGP and speech
department productions are significant.
They demonstrate both the desire of the
campus to see more all-student shows and
its willingness to support them.
We hope the Society will carry out its
plan to present a different Gilbert and
Sullivan operetta each semester. We also
hope that the spirit it demonstrated in
"The Mikado" has stirred a new interest
among all the "would-be" actors, writers,
and singers scattered about campus.
The Gilbert and Sullivan Society, the Un-
ion Opera and similar groups offer all of us
the chance to become at least a local Barry-
more or Bernhardt and have plenty of fun
in the process.

To the Editor:
THE KIND OF writing thato
passes for musical criticismr
in lthe columns of the Michigan
Daily is something to be deplored.
Naomi Stern does not hesitate
to tell, what she likes and what
she doen't like. And, in terms ofr
reaction to a musical experience,i
she is acting normally and intelli-
gently. For music is an expressioni
of feelings and the. reaction, for1
the most part, can only lie in the
same realm-that is, on the plane1
of emotions
However, simply because she
does not like Mozart's "Diverti-
mento in B-flat major, for Strings
and Two Horns (Koechel No.
287)," I see no reason why she
has to go to the orchestra, the
performances of the horns and
the strings, to find arguments to
justify her unsympathet i emo-
tional responses to Moardt.
Frankly, I think the entire per-
formance was, on strictly tech-
nical grounds, very difficult to
criticize and Miss Stern's review
seems to bear that out. She made
a lapse here and there on the
part of the orchestra signifying
faiures completely out of propor-
tion to what after all, seems to
have amounted to but incidental
slips. To that extent, all artists
fall short of perfection.
In music criticisms, therefore,
we should get back to principles.
I suggest that as a music critic,
Miss Stern disassociate her own
private emotions more in the fu-
ture than she did in this last
piece of writing , and that she
bring her criticism to lie more in
the realm of principles and less
in the field of emotional respon-
ses.
--Thomas E. Hansen
'Patronizing'
To the Editor:
PERHAPS IT is one way to get
material for "Letters to the
Editor," but must we enjoy thel
finest symphony orchestra in the
country,, to be infuriated the next
morning by such a patronizing
"criticism"_ in the Daily?
What better choice than Moz-
art could there be for an uncon-
testably great string orchestra?
(And please don't blame the horns
for Hill Auditorium's acoustics).
Mozart's music itself is to be ap-
preciated for his intricacies of de-
sign, which might seem "tedious"
to the uninformed. The Ravel
was excellent, but does not require
the finesse of expression required
by Mozart.
What did you expect of Mr.
Pasquale in his solo work in "Har-
old in Italy"? This was not a vi-
ola concerto to show off "inspired
virtuosity!" Look back at your
program notes, with which you
were so entranced, Miss Stern,
and see that that is the reason
Paganini turned it. down! I am
surprised that you missed panning
George Laurent, flutist. As long
as you are going to pick on great
musicians, you should not ignore
the best in any field.
Perhaps Mr. Koussevitzky and
the Boston Symphony are used to
the immaturity of college reviews,
but I would rather that gret art-
ists would not be subjected to
such stupid criticisms. Until you
get someone who knows music on
the job, why don't you forget
about the music write-ups?

Incorrect
To the Editor:
HIL DAWSON states editorial-
ly that in the Student Legis-
lature elections no vote has been
taken on an issue, because of a
lack of disagreement. This state-
ment is incorrect.
As a member of the 10-man
slate which ran on a 10-point
progressive platform, I wish to
remind Mr. Dawson's readers that
we quite outspokenly raised ten
controversial issues and made our
position clear with respect to
them. Six of us were elected on
the basis of this program.
Many of the persons elected
have expressed strong disagree-
ment with major points in our
program. Also, many of the in-
cumbents who have another sem-
ester to serve oppose such items
in our program as a raise in G.I.
subsistence, an active fight
against discrimination, controls to.

avoid blanket rent increase, and
other points,
At the last Student Legislature
meeting, some of the incumbents
were completely unconcerned
about Operation Subsistence,
which has to do with the very
ability of most veterans to go to
school at all. Others thought the
Legislature should not get "mixed
up" in the scandal of barber shop
discrimination against some of
our students. One actually had the
audacity to defend the right to
discriminate as part of. a free en-
terprise system.
I go on record to the effect that
I consider racial discrimination a
far more important issue than the
question of how many people turn
out to greet the football team;
that the price and income squeeze
on students deserves infinitely
more consideration than the prob-
lem of getting people to cheer
more profusely.
I assure Mr. Dawsom that he
need have no fear that these vit-
al issues facing the Student Legis-
lature will be unanimously re-
jected in deference to the propon-
ents of more Joe College spirit.

No Partition
To the Editor:
THE STORY of the Arab-Jew-
ish quarrel on Palestine and
the UN decisikn reminds me of
the old story of King Solomon's
decision to divide a child between
two women both claiming to be
its mother, the decision that shows
clearly the grief of the real moth-
er and the joy of the false one.
The Arab decision to fight the
partition by all means is the nat-
ural feeling of any nation against
aggressors trying to steal some
part of its land.
As for the UN decision, I like to
quote from the American weekly
magazine, "Time," dated Decem-
ber 8, 1947, page 31, to show how
fair was that decision .accom.-
plished:
"One day Haitian delegation,
Antonio Vieux, spoke heartedly
against partition, two days later
he announced shamefacedly that
his government had ordered hjxn.
to switch to yes. Philipino dele-
gate, General Carlos Romalo, (sic)
on Wednesday orated against par-
tition, sailed away on the Queen
Mary. Saturday a new Philipino
delegate flew in from Washington
and voted yes. Liberia, which vot-
ed no in committee, said yes in
the final roll call."
These are examples of how the
UN is going to settle matters un-
der the supervision of the great
powers.
The Arab nations are not wait-
ing for leaders such as the res-
pectful Grond Mufti to awaken
them, they know how tosavem their
properties and Palestine wllrer
main Arab forever.

WESTERN EUROPE has been
receiving a thorough course
in Russian tactics within the last,
few weeks. The lessons have been
sharp and painful, but the know-
ledge thus acquired should prove
salutary. France and Italy can
by now have no illusions about
the aims or direction of their na-
tive Communists. The strikes fo-
mented by these gentry have
been patently political, obviously
calculated to weaken the state-
and when, as in France, the Com-
munists have been defeated, Mo-
ther Russia was prompt to make
her displeasure known.
