Hold On ToYour Hats

ITJE BREA$ has come. Hold on to your
hats, because we may be going on a
down hill ride. The decline we're talking
about has nothing to do with commodities
or grain; we're noting the first drop in
enrollment here since the war.
Like the weary consumers, we just can't
believe it. We're too accustomed by now
to overcrowded classes, restaurants and
houses to adjust quicl:ly to the notion that
The Daily attempts to present discus-
sions and features on its editorial page
which are of greatest possible interest to
its student readers. As part of this aim,
we will add to this page a student column
and a cartoon devoted principally to local
issues. Any student who wishes to apply
for the position of columnist or cartoon-
ist may submit samples of his work to
this office before noon, Friday, Feb. 13.
Positions are also open for book, movie
and music reviewers. Sample reviews
must also be in by the Friday deadline.
In addition to these permanent fea-
tures, The Daily welcomes regular con-
tributions from its readers to both the
Letters to The Editor and It So Rappens
-The Senior Editors.

from now on we may have some room in
which to turn around.
And like our price thwarted brethren, we
can't believe thati this is the real thing.
We keep telling ourselves that before the
war, enrolllment ilways went down during
the spring term, and that after all, with a
February graduating class of 1500, a drop
in registration was to be expected.
And even the fact that we still have some
19,500 students around here can't discour-
age us. All we can reahze is that there are
1,000 less.
University officials prayerfully predicted
last fall, when enrollment shot up to 20,500,
that this marked the peak of all peaks, and
we would now start the decline. They said
that enrollment would eventually level off
at about 18,000. We, who entered the Uni-
versity during the boom and have been
hustled around ever since, just couldn't be-
lieve it.
More than half the decrease is accounted
for by the drop in veteran enrollment, a
trend which is likely to continue. But we
are slightly worried about those people who
won't be applying in the future. It was com-
forting to think that 20,500 people wanted a.
college education even if it made conditions
a little crowded.
We now can go to our still-packed classes
with a lighter heart, and even next fall when
enrollment shoots back up to 20,000 there
will at least have been this moment of joy.
--Harriett Friedman.

What Was the Mark?

A COED of our acquaintance was assigned
a term paper on Lucretius for her phi-
losophy course. She neglected to study up
on that philosopher, but the night before
the paper was due, deciding to trust to luck
and her "natural ability," dashed it off.
Some time later, the paper was returned.
At the end the professor had noted: "In-
genious, but not Lucretius."
ANOTHER of our femnale friends ran
into some academic trouble because of
neglecting her studies. She was consider-
ably shocked when she discovered a ques-
tion on her Shakespeare final asking
for a comparison between King John and
Uen2ry IV, part one--the poor girl had
never gotten around to King John.
Novel Campagn
A CAMPAIGN TO MAKE "racial prejudice
as unpopular as B.O." will be carried
out on a national level this year by the
Advertising Council, Inc. The latest in a
series of public welfare drives carried on
by the council, it will have the support of
the entire advertising profession. In addi-
tion, many business and manufacturing
groups, newspaper associations, labor, con-
sumer, and civic organizations have pledged
The three principal points to be stressed
in the campaign are:
1. Accept-or reject - people on their in-
dividual worth.
2. Do not listen to or spread rumors
against a race or religion.
3. Speak up against prejudice, wherever
it is; in business, school, labor union, church
or social group.
Every available means of advertising will
be used to publicize the program, known as
the "United American Campaign." Striking
posters have been designed and eloquent
statements formulated. Newspapers, maga-
zines, radio broadcasts, outdoor display
panels, and subway car cards all will be
used to carry the campaign to the people.
Campaign manager Edward Royal says the
drive will be pushed strongly, in the South.
The campaign was organized by public
spirited citizens who felt that the enormous
power of advertising could and should be
used to promote public as well as private
interests. The purpose of the campaign is
the best argument for its support.

THE CRACKED Liberty Bell, historic
monument in Independence Hall, Phil-
adelphia, is. becoming a stronger tradition
with the passing of time.
A recent accident in a little Italian village
is our proof.
To express their thanks for the goodwill
of the American Friendship Train, the Ro-
tary Club, of Florence, Italy, ordered a bell
to be cast. "A new Liberty Bell," according
to the Associated Press, the bell was solid
brass, one foot high and weighed fifteen
pounds. Not as large as the original Liberty
Bell, it was large enough to express the
feeling of many hungry Italian people; so
it was shipped by rail-on its way to the
Rotary Club of Philadelphia.
Fate stopped the train at a tiny village,
whose inhabitants were eager to see the bell.
They excitedly unwrapped the elaborate

PULLTS FROM the gun of a Hindu
fanatic last week ended the life and the
career of one of the most amazing men that
this generation of amazing men has seen.
Mohandas Gandhi, the man who de-
veloped the technique of passive resistance
that eventually forced the British out of
his beloved India, lived to see his dream
of independence come true and died trying
to stop the bloodshed that followed.
Two weeks before his death, it was re-
ported that some of his followers were try-
ing to talk Gandhi into proclaiming his
divinity. Nothing came of it during his life-
time but it is not only conceivable but en-
tirely probable that thg people of India
will deify their liberator within the next few
Gandhi has variously been called a saint
among politicians and a politician among
saints. It is certainly true that no politician
in our western society has ever had the
command over so many people as he had
over some 400 million Indians. The West
has seen powerful men but they owed their
power in part at least to their positions as
heads of states or some similar position.
Gandhi derived all of his power from the
force of his personality and his ideas.

City Editors
SEVERAL WEEKS AGO students at our
sister educational institution up in East
Lansing stole a march on us by gaining ap-
proval for the formation of "political clubs."
Micbigan State President Ha nnah
okayed the move asking only that student
political groups take it easy on state politics
where appropriations"to the college were in-
volved. The. action was hailed by students
who immediately took steps to organize
young Republican, young Democrat and
Wallace Progressives clubs.
We checked with President Ruthven to
see if something of this kind might be done
here. Mr. Ruthven, in a letter, said the ad-
ministration officers of the University had
discussed the subject and turned the matter
over to Dean Erich Walter.
Dean Walter has been studying the sub
ject of political clubs for some time. Recent-
ly he approved a request by the president
of the Ann Arbor Young Republican club
to announce meetings on University Bulle-
tin Boards and include a sign-up sheet for
any student interested in joining the club.
This latest action amounts to approval
of political activity among students. Now
all that remains to be done is for a group
of Wallace backers, young Republicans or
young Democrats to apply to the Com-
mittee on Student Affairs for official
This is an election year when many stu-
dents will be casting their first presidential
vote. Nothing could be more natural than
the formation of avowed political student
groups to back one party or the other in
the coning campaign. These groups could
secure topflight speakers for appearances
here to explain issues and ask for support.
In the past political groups have func-
tioned on campus in one guise or another.
However they have mostly been the voluble
far left ideologies, leaving the vast majority
of students, wo icalan toward established
parties, without any voice.
There is of course one touchy quetion
which will undoubtedly come up if political
groups are approved here. The Communist
party is recognized on the ballot and mem-
bers of that group among the student body
will ask for recognition. They should be
recognized and allowed to operate along
with the young Republicans and Democrats
even though the headline-hunting Detroit
newspapers will hysterically cry "Reds Ram-
pant on U Campus."
University authorities shouldn ot allow
themselves to be swayed by circulation-
building Detroit papers, It/ is generally
recognized that weil-informed students
can intelligently choose among conflict-
ing ideologies if they have the oppor-
tunity. -Dick Maloy
At the State...
GOLDEN EARRINGS, with Marlene Diet-
rich and Ray Miland
A LTHOUGH the presence of Quentin Rey-
nolds adds a note of authenticity to this
charming bit of fish stew, "Golden Ear-
rings" is in reality a gypsy tale embellished
with some modern trappings. These include
an abundance of Nazi agents, secret for-
mulae and a modicum of Dietrich's legs.
Ray Milland is a rather peaked British
army officer at the start of the film, but
after a little of Dietrich's expert cooking and
care, he picks up remarkably. He is able to
dispose of several pretty nasty Nazis and
even swim the Rhine with practically no

trouble at all.V
The song "Golden Earrings" is displayed
prominently and effectively throughout the
picture in the "original" gypsy and in one
Lauren Bacallish rendition in English. Al-
though Milland is a trifle backward, the
song plus the unashamedly biological Mar-
lene finally break down his British reserve
and between the three of them, the simple
life gets quite a plug.

gan, Andrea King and Arlene Dahl).
DENNIS MORGAN. as Chauncey Olcott,
is a young tugboat hand who, to no-
body's surprise, least of all his own, reaches1
the top as an Irish singer. This tuneful mel-
odrama might have been a wonderful vehicle
for Morgan's pleasing tenor. Even his superb
voice, however, could not overcome the less-
than-mediocre script and acting that left
the audience flat at the end of ,it all. Nor
could the slap-stick comedy, the technicolor
or the "love-interest" supplied by Arlene
Dahl and Andrea King. Even with its ex-
travaganza scenes, this picture could hardly
interest anyone except a Dennis Morgan fan
or an Irishman.
