Students Foresee Coup
By French Commilunists

(EDITOt'S NOTE: This is the last of
a series of articles on what foreign
students at the University think of
the international situation.)
An attempted Communist coup
in France is predicted for late
spring, by two University students
Poet Roethke
To Read Work
Theodore Roethke, university
alumnus and nationally known
poet, will read and discuss poems
from his recently published vol-
ume "The Lost Son and Other
Poems" at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Rackham Ampitheatre.
Roethke, who has been called a
poet of "unusual skill" by such
critics as W. H. Auden and T. S.
Eliot, received his bacculaureate
degree from the university in 1929
and his master's in 1936. He at-
tended the Law School in 1929-30.
Later, he was granted a Guggen-
heim Fellowship and spent a year
Roethke's first book, "Open
House," appeared in 1941. Many of
his poems have. been published in
"The Nation," "The New Yorker,"
and "Poetry." He has taught at
Penn State, Michigan State, and
is now teaching creative writing
at the University of Washington.

tion of Medical Schools for clini-

Before he concluded his tour,
Gov. Sigler stuck his head into
every nook and cranny of the old
hospital. t
S. He turned an inquisitive eye into
wards, storerooms, bathrooms and
closets, took a good look at out-
moded and overloaded .heating,
lighting and ventilation systems
and ran a finger over patches of
plaster peeling off the walls.
He noticed the single entrance
to the hospital, the single elevator
--which carries both patients and
garbage-and the one narrow,
winding stairway, which is both a
traffic bottleneck and a fire haz-

who fought in the French army
during the war.
Philippe Roulier, F&C, of Paris,
and Jacques Duchamp, '49E, of
Lyon, said the attempt would be
chiefly a feeler to test Commu-
nist strength before a major as-
sault was launched.
Roulier stated that while the
Communists in his country are de-
creasing in number, they are not
decreasing in force and determi-
nation. They have, moreover, the
benefit of their experience in last
fall's struggle for power.
Caught in Middle
Duchamp went through the
French Communist turmoil in the
spring of 1944. At times, he said,
the French had to fight both the
Germans and the Communists.
"I have seen the Communists
open the way for the Germans, so
they could kill the non-Commu-
nist factions," he said referring
specifically to the battle for the
mountain of Vercours.
DuchamL), who has never seen
actual riots in France, declared,
"The French mind is absolutely
opposite to the Communistic. We
are individualistic. Of course,
some people in France are Com-
munists not because they genu-
inely believe in it, but because they
think it is to their self-interests."
Centers of Action
He added that Paris and Mar-
seilles are the centers of action,
while the provinces are quiet.
Both Duchamp and Roulier
called the Marshall Plan France's
only hope against the Communists.
Duchamp criticized Americans
who say the French workers are
not helping themselves. "Attacking
European people is awfully un-
fair," he said. "I am sure an Amer-
ican worker with only a few slices
of bread each morning, and no car
or similar luxuries, would refuse
to work."
Out of Luck
There is no more black market,
he said; and all sorts of things can
be had-for a price. But the
French worker, who earns about 20
American cents a day, is out of
The policial situation is very
bad, said Duchamp. "All I have
received from Europe says it is
just like Hitler. They think there
will be war by the end of the year.
Some Europeans hope it will be
soon to get it over with.
"I notice that Russia has de-
mobilized all but two classes," he
said. "When America speaks
strongly, Russia backs down, like
last year in Azerbaijan. Just as
with Hitler, when you speak
strongly they respect you. When
they think you are weak; they have
contempt for you," he said.

AVC To Hold
Open Meeting
lRd'O14i . gthe 'irnportat~1te of
the coming Itaian elections as a
test of American policy, the camin-
pus chapter of AVC is planning an
open prog;ram meeting called

by Prof. Howard Ehrmann of the
history department.
In addition, Julien Bryan's doc-
umentary film, "Bread and Wine"

The movie, banned in South
Carolina for presenting the sub-
ject of sharecropping as an open
question, brings into focus the life
of the Italian farm worker and
role within the peasant-landlord
system, which has survived dic-
tatorship, war and reconstruction.

the formation of other UWF chap-

that it is "psychologically better

them affiliate with American
