NIGHTFDITORS: DALE S & SCHOTT
What's w'ronf2 with Mid higan?
The Cailelhan Act.
Passed by shrt-sighted and frightened
little men of the, Michigan Legislature under
the pretese of prothctinr the state from
"reds," "aiens" and oreign agents, the Call-
ahan Act is likely to create hycteria, to dis-
credit democratic labor unions and to limit
the freedom of speech.i and expression of the
people of Michiuan.
Written in an:igamus and obscure
terms, it.I'defines" foreinagents and
aencies as follows. "Any indrAivual, club,
gaup et. . ..whose origin is directly or
indireety of foreign inspiration . . and
whose object is the control . . . of the
government . .. and which is or has been
affiliatedi atah any international bodies
oriinatiag withaor dehendient upon for-
eign got'e nrn . . . orc under their
influence."
Individuals and ogani :Jions falling into
any of these categories are required to reg-
ister as a "foreign agent" with the Attorney
General ani are oliated to announce in
all [her publications d radio programs
thetact that they have so iegi ered.
On the .?srzxcc. the Actmay appear to be
directed at o small, islaed minority, but
acloser examination- : ithe clause quoted
above reveals that i, an be utilized to label.
smnearand iuvstigae almnost any citizen or'
organization of Michigan. For example, as
amemben of a church which has foreign
missions and ;et s or gives money aboad, a
union affilated with en iternational labor
organization or afraternal organization that
sends food, clothing and relief rcney to for-
eign gow nments or pcouie. you are a "for-
ijn agent" rz-resenting an organization of

foein insp'tion.
n e rs l: t F I and the
Thms Vr Arerica ' inmittec to smear
asc Qtcrs, members of un-
i th ational Labor
(Irguizlkm or o;'id Federation of
nion .d 'd' ' the Joint
Ai d dipel any
at the ate administation will
rerain from rorting to te same tactics.
Inlss you register and condemn yourself
subetrsie, you are liable to indictment,
and a $5,iO, fine and five yeais in jail if
found guilty.
The Attorney General of Michigan, like
the late U.S. Attorney Gineral A. Mitchell
Palnmr,. who conducted the infamous "red
witch hunt" following World War I, has un-
limited powrc to arbitrarily declare ergani-
a dons suioversive. No trial is necessary, no
wetnesses niecd be called, no evidence pre-
sented. In other :ods, the Act gives the
Attorney General dicta Iatoral power to har-
; , in.tdate and prosecute every individ-
pal and organiz1tion whose social, political
and economic op nions differ w, ith his own.
This is an exampl1-' of totalItarianism,
which employs slmiar miethods to suppress
crtics o~f the status clue and obscure the fail-
tire of government to cnat urgently needed
social and et'onomnic legislation.
Aithough the Callahan Act is laze, it can
and should be repealed to effectively dem-
onotrate to Sigler and Lis cohorts through-
out the entire nation that the American
people are hard to fool and still harder to
push around indisevimtinatel'.

By EDGAR ANSEL MOWRER
AiR YS T RUMAN is out of luck. Just
when he is cautiously trying to swing
the Amn'i)n Congress b hind the Marshall
Plan for long-term ruopean rehabilitation.
France and Italy begin sreaming for im-
Inediate short-term relit .
It looks almost like a dirty trick.
But the distress is rIA. Unless our Pres-
ident finds ways to alleviate it, he will
take ulloin himself a feari ul responsibility.
France's bread ration is down to 200
;rams or less than hal a pound a person a
lay-a pitifulc =mall chunk to people most
of who.M idi('t is bread. Vital French imports
like cotten and ray on have been stopped,
French overseas purchases from the U.S.
are limited to wheat, coAl and fats. A slump
in industrial productien i already inevitable.
Unless France obtains more dollars by Oc-
tober lx'-within the nAt three weeks-the
bread ration will be eat further. Hunger
riots and the swell of communism are the
probable results.
Every Anierican citize n, beginning with
the President, has toi ask himself one ques-
tion:

7JUCII as our objective thinking, fact-
minded (engineers may object to the
term, it must be said that thi; is a charm-
ing book by and about a charming man.
Corroboration for the use of such a perhaps
bjectionable adjective comes from another
.stets~i' of the Prof siun, Dean Emeritus
Joseph A. Busley. with whom I recently
enjo ed a chat about his personal friend and
associate, the author of this book.
This conversation only bore out what can
clearly be read between the lines of these
memoirs, that the late Dean Cooley was a
much-loved man who knew how to enjoy
life. It is this that makes the book such a
delight--it is full enjoyment of life, never
lost sight of by Dean Ccoley while remem-
bering many obstacles and long years of
hard, honorable work.
Born i 1855, Dean Cooley traces. his life
as a boy in Canandaigu, New York, as a
student at the United States Naval Acad-
emy, as first teacher of mechanical engi-
neering at the University of Michigan and
later as dean of the engineering school, as
lieutenant commander during the Spanish-
American War, and as candidate for the
United States Senate (in a chapter entitled
"The Senatorial 'oga Did Not Fit.") Of per-
haps even greater interest are such chapters
as "A Jug of Wine . . . " and "The Filthy
Weed."
D(an a olcry was a pioneer in the best
tradition, Jr he had lBeth high ideals and
the prme' foree end energy to make
them pro etieal:. ii story of the found-
ing and develoent of the University of
Michigan School of Fjigineering' is told
with the enthusisnm at one what had
more than a little to do with the excellent
position and reputation enjoyed by that
school today.
Simple in style and abounding in hearty
humor, the book is somewhat sketchily or-
ganized, as memoirs of a long, full life must
inevitably be. Some of the hundreds of anec-
dotes shouldnot be missed by any Uni-
versity student. One of the best concerns a
final examination flunked by every student
in Dean Cooley's class. A student finally re-
vealed that the poor results were due to the
fact that none of the questions in any way
resembled the complete fraternity files care-
fully memoized by all of his fellow-stud-
ents. As spokesman for the group he re-
quested another examination within the

week--and got it. That's the kind of man
Here's anoti'r one.. There was once
widespread discusion of the possibility of
Dean 'cocie~'st; appoinoment as president of
the Uni:erty lie was not, however, ap-
pointed, bn some time later a regent said
to himn, "I am not sure we did not make a
mistake in not electing you president."
Dean Coc iy c otntered, "Why in hell
didn't you?' The rerPy was, "You swear
too goddam much." 'ihe Dean must hav
enjoyed telling that one.
The book closes with a thoughtful and en-
lightened discussion of the deans favorite
topic, "The Engineer and the Future," in
which he eloquently insists upon the engi-
neer's responsibilities as a professional citi-
zen and outlines the program which en-
gineering education should undertake to
help its students fulfill their obligations to
their profeesion, to their country and to so-
ciety as a wx hole.
"Required Reading" may be an odious
way of putting it, but that is just what this
book should be for every University of
Michigan student, certainly for all engineer-
ing students.

Beaslcv. Norma n-Knudsen: A Biography.

France and Italy into the Soviet camp and
render the British people "neutral"?
Twice in one generation we tried to pre-
tend that European upheavals did not con-
cern us. Now the Soviet Union seems to be
following the Hitler pattern. French or
Italian collapse might give Russia advanced
bases on the Atlantic or the mastery of the
Mediterranean.
The Franco-Italian crisis upset the Amer-
ican time-table. Curing these urgent cases
of economic appendicitis with dollars now
comes before keeping the initiative in the
UN or long-term rehabilitation.
The sum needed is about 100 to 150 mil-
lion monthly for the next six months. It's
a lot of money-if you book it to charity.
It is insignificant if you consider it as an
essential portion of the 11 billion dollars
we are spending this year for national
defense.
Fcr which is worth more to us-a few,
possibly obsolete super-battleships or 130
million firm allies (including Britain)?
Top American officials like the Secretary
of the Treasury admit all this. They just
can't seem to find the necessary funds. May-
be they are not looking hard enough or in
the right places. I can suggest at least seven
pockets in Uncle Sam's roomy pants where
leagally available funds can be found.
Assuming that Britain's needs can tempo-
rarily be covered by the International Bank,
the following sources are available to France
and Italy:
1. The rest of grants-in-aid program
funds, originally 332 millions, can properly
be used by Italy for the purchase of
needed wheat.
2. The U. S. Government can make avail-
able to France and Italy wheat purchased by
the Commodity Credit Corporation.
3. The 200 million dollar remainder from
the U.S. Stabilization Fund is available for
stabilizing the Italian lira and the French
franc. Wheat and coal to these countries
will stabilize the currencies.
4. The Import-Export Bank has money.
This can be as readily used to meet a foreign
crisis now as during the war.
5. About 20 million dollars owed by the
United States to Italian prisoners of war
under the Geneva Convention can be turned
over immediately.
6. The American War Department should
start paying the Italians back rent for use
of buildings. Such payments are authorized.
7. Frozen French and Italia'n private funds
in this country, estimated at 150 million dol-
lars for France and 100 million for Italy, can
be released to their private French and Ital-
ian owners on the condition that said owners
agree to use these sums in payment of vital
imports to their respective countries within,
say, three months.
Here I submit, are several still untapped
sources of emergency funds. A thorough
search would doubtless reveal others. Tak-
en together they would fill the gap until
Congress meets and does its job.
Conclusion: The American Administra-
tion has the means of tiding over Europe's
desperate situation until other funds can be
made available-provided President Truman
insists. Unless he does, the full responsi-
bility for eventual catastrophe will be his.

Public' Education
FOR THE PAST three weeks 58 children
in Willow Village have been denied their
right to a public education because of their
race.
The children, living in Walpole Court,
neglecetd to register at the Jim Crow Sim-
monds schoolrSeptember 5, after being
transferred from the inter-racial Ross
school.
The Walpole parents, led by Mrs. T. Sny-
der, formed a committee which last week
picketed segregated Simmonds school, pro-
testing the re-zoning of the Village along
Jim Crow lines, and asking for a hearing

with the Village School Board.
W. A. Kraus, chairman of the school
board, has said that he has "no plans at
all to deal with the situation." He stated
that the school board is too busy with its
other duties to spend more time on the
Negro children, and that the board will not
call a special meeting to clear up the
