Campus G.O.P.
Group Forming
The campus edition of the 1948
election campaign gathered mo-
mentum yesterday as the Young
' Democrats chapter made its bid
for University sanction, while the
Wallace Progressives prepared to
join the new-born Progressive
Party of Michigan.
Meanwhile, it was learned last
night, a chapter of the Young Re-
publicans is in the formative stage
on campus and will soon join the.
list of partisan political groups
The Student Affairs Committee
will take up the request for rec-
ognition of the Young Democrats
at its meeting today. And two
weeks hence, the Wallace support-
ers will similarly petition the
Campus Milestone
These two bids mark the end of
a long period, of years during
which frankly partisan political
groups have kept clear of the cam-
pus scene.
Discussion, debates and house to
house canvassing will be on the
agenda of the Young Democrats
group, who seek to cushion the ef-
fects of the Third Party. "Liberal
government, through the election
of a Democratic Congress and
President" has been set as the
prospectus of the group.
A steering committee of thirty
members, headed by Tom Walsh
and sponsored by Prof. Robert
Angell, sociology department
chairman, has already set wheels
in motion to present the Demo-
crats' case to the campus.
Wallace Petition Drive
The Wallace Progressives, newly
expanded to 300 members, plan to
lead the Ann Arbor petition drive
to put Henry Wallace on the
Mhigan ba. Fewer than 10-
000 signatures are needed in the
state. But the Wallace support-
ers have set a goal of 250,000

Niebuhr Says
Mankind Still
Morally Weak
Man, the scientist and creator,
is today as morally weak and so-
cially powerless as he ever was.
This was the opinion expressed
last night by Dr. Reinhold Nie-
buhr, professor of applied Chris-
tianity at Union Theological Sem-
inary, in the final lecture in the
Lane Hall series on "The Inter-

pretation of History."
"Classic Christianity," Dr. Nie-
buhr said, "never anticipated what
man has discovered. ... thus, his-
tory is creative."
But, Dr. Niebuhr declared, man
has gained the illusion that this
creative history has also marked
a growth in the human capacity to
solve the problems of living.
Drawing a comparison between
the course of history and the span
of one man's life, Dr. Niebuhr
pointed out that "Adolescense
solves the problems of childhood,
but not the problems of adoles-
cense ..... sentility solves the
problems of maturity, but not the
problems of senility."
Dr. Niebuhr viewed present day
perplexity and despair as arising
from this illusion that "man is
above history."
It is imperative, he continued
that we return to the Christian
concept that "time is God, and
history is Christ," and that w

Psychologists Appraise
The average psychologist is. if anything, less "normal" than other
people, five University psychologists recently admitted.
The notion that psychologists are better adjusted to life than the
rest of mankind was revealed as pure fallacy in a survey conducted
recently among members of the University's psychology department.
As Prof. Daniel Katz put it, "The choosing of a vocation is a se-
lective process. Those people who find trouble in adjusting to their

In an effort to clarify the is-i

eration of America will sponsor.
an all-campus rally at 3:15 p.m.
tomorrow in the League.
One of a hundred similar ral-
lies being held on campuses
throughout the nation, the dem-
onstration will feature a survey
of events leading up to the cur-
rent situation by Saul Gottlieb,
regional director of the Zionist
Organization of America. Dr.
Franklin K. Littell, SRA director
will discuss the attitude of the
American people toward parti-
Meanwhile campus opinion on
the United States attituwe on par-
tition and the lifting of the arms
embargo to Palestine, reflected
the complexity of the problem.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department compared the
present situation in Palestine to
that during the Spanish Civil War.
"At that time, the U.S. refused
to ship arms to either side, but
Germany and Italy saw to it that
Franco got weapons and he sub-
sequently won."
Reflecting Arab opinion, Ismet
Hamadeh, '48E, of Beirut, Leban-I
on, said, "The U.S. should back
down from its stand on partition
in an honorable way since many'
nations have seen the impossi-
bility of the plan."
Rabbi Herschel Lynon of Hillel
Foundation said that the action
of the United States in supporting
partition implies a moral obliga-
tion to implement it. "The spirit
of partition is destroyed if the
Jews are not givenrthe right to
defend their lives and their dem-
ocratic aspirations."

Not Any Better
Prof. Katzeadmitted, however,
that years of working in the field
had not made his colleagues any
better "adjustors" than his non-
psychologist friends.
Prof. Edward L. Walker con-
sidered the problem while remov-
ing seven inches of ice from his
windshield, and came up with an
answer similar to Prof. Katz.
"A doctor knows what medicine
to take, but he still gets just as
sick as anyone else. The easy ac-
cess which most psychologists
have to psychiatric treatment
would be the only explanation for
their being better adjusted than
other people," he said.
Professors Burton D. Thuma
and Harold Guetzkow agreed that
there was no evidence of superior-
ity of adjustment among their
Professional Distinction
Prof. Louis Granich, however,
made the distinction between
teachers and scholars as com-
pared to members of other pro-
fessions. "If psychologists are
better adjusted as human beings,"
he said, "it is because they belong
to a group of men who have no
reason to question the value of
their work to society."
Prof. Granich emphasized, how-
ever, that psychologists were no
different in this respect from all
other faculty members. He at-
tributed their "high level of ad-
justment"-to the feeling of satis-
faction which they obtained from
their professional work, and to

Request Students

Split Called
People speculating on the possi-
ble break-up of the Democratic
Party because of the current re-
volt of the South "should remem-
ber the recent experience of both
Democrats and Republicans in
healing party splits," Prof. John
W. Lederle, of the political science
department, said yesterday.
Emphasizing the past stability
of the two great parties, Prof. Led-
erle pointed to such examples as
the purely temporary party revolt
of four "Solid South" states
against the Democratic presiden-
tial nominee, Al Smith, in 1928,
and the more recent anti-New
Deal balking of the Texas delega-
tion at the 1944 Democratic na-
tional convention.
Political Expediency
However, he asserted that "it
would have been politically more
expedient for President Truman
to have held off with his civil
rights proposals until the ap-
proach of the 1948 national con-
vention, for it would have given
the Southern political leaders less
time to organize an opposition."
Prof. Lederle pointed out that
the Democratic Party must have
not only the Solid South's 115
electoral votes, but must secure an
even greater number of votes from
the Negro and labor elements in
the northern cities.
Less Likelihood
"The Administration probably
considers the possibility of losing
the Southern vote less than that o
losing the Northern, and particu
larly Negro vote," Prof. Lederle

President Truman prodded Con-

program designed to encourage
the building of 10,000,000 homes
in 10 years.
The President slapped at the
"staggering, uncetrain" course
of housing legislation in the
past. In a special message sent
from the White House during
the absence of the vacationing
President, he urged prompt
passage of a package of laws

which would :
First, guarantee rent ceilings
"at least through April 30, 1949,"
grant a $2,000,000,000 increase in

insurance, bolster housing credit,
and channel more federal help to

Human Acts in Law Stressed


Too much discussion of the
law was confined in the past to
the mere structure of legal rules,
worked out in terms which elim-
inated all elements of human ac-
tivity and guidance, Prof. Burke
Shartel, of the Law School, de-
clared yesterday in the first of
the Thomas Cooley lecture series.

man beings and is kept going
through human acts and efforts,"

he explained. "To my mind, hu-
man acts and their guidance are
the most important features of
our legal system. I conceive of law
as a complex aggregate of stand-
ards for human acts."
Four Standards
Individual standards are divis-
ible into four classes, according
to Prof. Shartel. Obligatory acts
include those which are required
to be performed by the individual
such as paying taxes and serving
in the armed services. The sec-
ond class consists of prohibited
acts which are crimes injurious
to the public or injurious to indi-
In the third class, are permitted
acts which make the individual
free to do such things as defend
himself against attack and speak
his mind freely.
Official Aid
The fourth class includes ef-
fective acts in which the law of-
fers official aid to the individual
to carry out certain purposes of
his own such as acquisition or
transfer of property.
