By STEWART ALSOP
WASHINGTON-It is dismaying to learn
what lay behind the sudden outcrop of
violent insults directed against the Amer-
ican leaders in a recent issue of the Soviet
"Literary Gazette," which brought forth a
formal protest from Amcripan Ambassador
Walter Bedell Smith. For according to re-
ports reaching Washington from Moscow,

roday, sixteen months after Congress
boed to the National Association of
Mamufacturer's oft-repeated and vocifer-
;ou a sertion that prices would fall if all
controls were removed, the Department
of Labor has announced the cost of living
has scared 19.7 percent above last year's
record high.
Although leaders of the Truman Adminis-
tration, Congress and the National Associa--
tion of Manufacturers have blamed runa-
+ way prices on higher wages', shorter hours,
increased costs of production, waste and ex-
* cessive exportation, they have assiduously
avcicied the key reason-exorbitant profits.
Reports for the first half of this year
offer irrefutable proof that American in-
dustry is gourging itself on the biggest
profiteeripg spree in history.
Victims. of this gigantic gouge are the
men and women who work for a living-
the majority of the people in these United
States.
What evidence is there to support this
accusation that current profiteering and
phony price fixing is unparalleled in the
annals of this nation?
To begin with, the Department of Com-
merce estimates that corporation profits
will reach a fabulous $17.4 billion this year.
In 1946, Armour, Swift, Wilson and
Cidahy, the Big Four meat packers, re-
ported a net profit of $64,200,00, a bare
$3l, 0,000 more than .its combined profit
in the previous year. And this year, Time
(A g. 4) wrote "the big meat packers .. .
(are) expected to have even more whop-
ping profits." Yet while these four meat
packers needed a 1.6 percent price in-
crease to offset wage increases, they ac-
tually increased prices at the wholesale
level by 90.6 percent.
American Woolen Mill, Celanese Corpora-
tion, Pacific Mills, Industrial Rayon and
American Viscose, the five largest firms
in the country, while boosting their profits
iron $24.5 million in 1945 to a record-
breaking $67 million in 1946 (with this year's
profits even higher), increased wages 6.7
percent and then raised prices at the whole-
aelvl 31.8 percent.
)?ste ja profit of $11,360,170 for the first
six months of this year, exactly $7,000,000
nore tilan its half year profit last year,
su Oil Company, controlled by the Joseph
Pew, raised its prices "to discourage new de-
mands for fuel oil," although nothing had
Scurred to justify even higher prices.
es profiteering in oil, however, was
no worse than his associates in the field.
Socny-Vacuum, controlled by the Rocke-
fdlers netted a profit of $40,900,000 in the
Net six months of this year, $18,000,000
tuore than last year. Shel'l Oil showed a
romt of ,23,325,959 against last year's
S0389. Phillips Petroleum reported
r ,,99, just double 1946's half-year
tc steal, however, was perpetrat-
1,me or strel companies which in-
- : tcel priccs $5 to $10 a ton in the
o argest profits in history. This
Srce gouge was excused by Big and
Stle cl a the grounds that wage in-
e coal miners had' raised the cost
o prodction from 35c to$1.50 a ton. Steel

STEVENS THOMSON MASON, MISUN-
DERSTOOD PATRIOT.
By Kent Sagendorph. New York: E. P.
Dutton & Company, Inc. 1947. 447 pages.
AFTER THREE introductory background
chapters made somewhat dull by com-
parison with the remaining action-packed
chapters of this book, the reader's initial
curiosity is displaced by growing interest and
suspense. A sudden tremendous gain in
momentum precipitates him into a series of
events and intrigues typical of all records
of pioneer and politeial history.
Sagendorph's book is a sort of literary
resurrection. With obviously intense inter-
est and admiration, he has painstakingly
delved into all sorts of historical records
and documents in order to rescue from
undeserved disgrace an' oblivion a man
who, more than any other man, was re-
sponsible for bringirn the Territory of
Michigan into statehoo( ind for its na-
tionally recognized siawtar of education
and its internationally recognized Uni-
versity.
Without doubt, Stevens Thomson Mason
was an unusua'l figure. Consider the fact
that he became a Territorial Secretary, as
the result of a practical joke to be sure, at
the age of nineteen year;. Five years later,
in a characteristically audacious move, he
found himself first governor of the state of
Michigan fifteen months before that state
had even been officially accepted into the
Union.
Descended from an impressive line of out-
standing statesmen, Mason never lost that
heritage of democratic honor and faith. At-
tempting to follow the Jeffersonian ideal of
democratic statesmanship, he lost his cause
at the hands of politicians headed by a vil-
lain to whom Sagendorph, with perhaps
excusable bias, endows all the qualities of a
truly melodramatic villain, William Wood-
bridge.
The almost universal popularity which
Sagendorph claims for Mason must be
attributed, at least in art, to his romantic
appearance, his Byronic dark hair, his
gold-headed cane and his perfectly tail-
ored New York clothes.
Although an over-awed enthusiasm for his
subject may be noted in Sarendorph's treat-
ment of his hero, he cannot, on the other
hand, be accused of neglecting facts in
favor of the story. This is not a "fictional-
ized biography," as the lengthy biblio-
graphy and complete index prove. Neither
is it dryly colorless, but rather swift-moving
and exciting. What else could it be, with
such a story and such a hero? One wonders
why there are not people such as this hero
around today. Of course, the days of pioneers
and Indians are over, but certainly not the
need for youths 'of fire, imagination and
determination. Perhaps what this country
needs is another Stevens Thomson Mason.
Maybe even two or three.

$11,703,000, and Wheeling $5,790,000. In
all cases the increases thus far this year
were either double or more than all pre-
vious earnings.
To bring prices down, President Truman
and Senator Taft have collaborated in ad-
vocating voluntary rationing and urging

the American people to waste less food.
These tongue-in-cheek suggestions have
never worked in the past and do not stand
a ghost of a chance of affectuating a
sharp drop in current prices now, they
merely serve to obscure and protect the
greedy and irresponsible industrial buca-
neers who are fundamentally responsible
for America's rm ay inflation,
In the final analysis, only the immediate
reinstitution of price controls by a special
session of Congress can strike an effective
blow against unscrupulous big business
forces that are now muleting the lifeblood
from the American people.
-Joe Frien.

there is solid evidence that the abuse was
inspired by no less a person than Soviet
Premier Josef Stalin.
"The Literary Gazette" is the organ of
the Union of Soviet Writers, a body which
has for some months been undergoing
an extensive purge. The Soviet literary
men, already sufficiently cowed by the
purge, were recently informed that Stalin
himself was displeased by the quality of
the magazine. They were given to under-
stand that this ominous displeasure would
only be softened if the magazine in the
future had a far more "political and anti-
Western content."
The Soviet writers, not unsurprisingly,
hastened to comply. In the next issue of the
magazine, the President of the United
States was said to "vie for the laurels of the
little corporal of Munich." Secretary of State
George C. Marshall was described as "The
Shylock of Wall Street." General Dwight
Eisenhower was said to "speak with the voice
of Hitler." And so on.
AMBASSADOR SMITH'S protest was of
course fruitless, and the incident is now
no doubt closed. Yet Stalin's reported
part in it is interesting as a symptom,
and as part of a larger pattern. For it is
quite evident, not only from this incident
but from the whole course of Soviet policy
in recent months, that Stalin has made a
fateful decision.
At one time Stalin, unlike most of those
around him, undoubtedly considered the
possibility of limited co-operation with the
West, at least for tactical purposes. That
time is past. The Soviet Union is now waging
tireless political warfare against the West
and above all against the United States.
Reflecting this decision, the wiorld Com-
munist parties may no longer co-operate,
however tentatively, with the democratic
parties. Instead, they must prepare for the
revolutionary moment.
The little group of Russian experts in
Moscow and Washington first sensed this
final, decisive shift in both the Soviet and
Communist lines as early as last April.
In that month a series of articles began
to appear in Moscow's "Pravda."
The series consisted largely of a reprinting
of Nicolai Lenin's "April Theses" accom-
panied by a significant interpretation by
"Pravda's" editors. The theses were written
by Lenin in April, 1917. The short-lived Ker-
ensky regime was then in power, and for
the first time the Russian Communist party
was a legal political party. A number of the
lesser party leadrs were therefore pro-
posing that there was no longer need for
the traditional tactics of conspiracy and
violence. Rather, they argued, the party
must concentrate on winning the broad
support of the masses, and thus by legal
means gain control of the Parliament and
the government. In his April Theses, Lenin
blasted these weaklins.
The bourgeoisie and their Social Demo-
cratic tools, he said could never be over-
thrown except by violence. The Social
Democratic government must be under-
mined to prepare the way for the rev-
olutionary moment and the seizure of
full power by the Communists. Moreover,
these tactics did not concern Russia alone.
"There is one and only one kind of in-
ternationalism in deed; working wholeheart-
edly for the development of the revolution-
ary movement and the revolutionary
struggle and supporting such and only such
a struggle and such a line in every country
without exception." So wrote Lenin in 1917,
as reprinted by "Pravda" in 1947.
"Pravda" noted carefully that Lenin's
1917 words were fully "applicable to the
world situation" of 1947. It remarked also
on the "anarchy and deepening crisis of
Western capitalism." And it pointed out
that by following Lenin's tactics in 1917
the party became sufficiently powerful in
a few short months to organize the rev-
olution and the full seizure of power by
November.
The policy of the Soviet Union and the
policy of the World Communist parties are
two sides of the same coin. Thus the Russian

experts believe that the "Pravda" series fore-
shadowed the increasingly aggressive policy
of the Kremlin, of which the abuse in the
"Literary Gazette" and the recent furious
Vishinsky speech in the United Nations are
symptoms. It also foreshadowed the fate of
such anti-Communist/"Social Democrats" in
eastern Europe at Maniu, Nagy and Petkov.
Finally, it foreshadowed the new Communist
line in the non-Soviet world, and especially
in Italy and France. In Italy, Communist
leader Palmiro Togliatti, who once, like the
objects of Lenin's wrath in 1917, preached
"legality," has now told his followers to be
prepared to fight. In France last month, the
central committee of the Communist party
decided that its ideology must be reoriented
along revolutionary lines, and that French
Communists "should resolve to welcome the
epithet Stalinist."
Thus the pattern unfolds. The great Com-
munist bid for power in western Europe wiil
come this winter. As to whether or not it
succeeds, more depends on the United States
than on Josef Stalin and his fellow strat-
egists in the Kremlin.

or less in length, and in good taste)

Time To Act
To the Editor:
ONE CANNOT SAY whether, in
printing Stewart Alsop's article
of October 1, the reference to "a
future gibbon, industriously com-
piling his 'decline and fall of the
United States'," The Daily pur-
posely used the lower case by way
of bitter irony, or whether it came
out that way through a happy ac-
cident of typography.
In either case, nothing could
point up .the substance of our
times more dramatically than the
somber reflection that if the na-
tions cannot, or will not, do their
utmost to prevent another world
war, the histories of the future
may in fact have to be left to the
apes.
The fundamentals of American
policy toward the possible spread
of communism have for some time
been well defined and agreed upon
by Democrats and Republicans
alike. We fully realize that com-
munism must be contained within
its present limits and that we are
the only nation in a position to
take positive measures looking to
ths end. We know that the key
to the situation lies in preserving
the political independence of west-
ern Europe and that the only cerr
tain means of doing this is to
theory escapement mechanisms of
clocks with special attention to the
minimizing of time errors. }

of these countries. We even have,
in the Marshall Plan, a clear and
practical blueprint for doing the
job.
The coming winter is sure to be

decisive so far as the further ad-

The discussion and debate given
to this matter has been more than
ample. It is now time to act.

Willow Schools
To the Editor:
THE teacher from Rdss School
who questions the accuracy of
the Daily Willow Run stories has
gone astray. It is she, not the
Daily reporter, who is in error. If
Miss DeLaurier will take a walk in
the area of the Simmonds School
some day, she can verify the fol-
lowing facts. Simmonds School
lies not in all-Negro area, but in
an all-white area. The school is
bounded on the right by Rich-
mond Court, which lies just across
the street and is all-white with
the exception of one Negro family.
On the left the school is bounded
by the business and administra-
tive. Behind the school there is
open land. The nearest all-Negro
area is approximately half a mile
away.
It is obvious that if the simple
principle of drawing boundary'
lines on the basis of distance had
been followed, Simmonds would be
a mixed school. I need not com-
ment on the rest of Miss De
Laurier's letter.
