Salt on His Tale
A CERTAIN Shakespeare professor came
up with one of the more unique apologies
to students for a delay in returning papers:
"I am sorry I do not have all your papers,
but you see I was busy chasing an owl," he
said.
The professor did offer an explanation:
It seems that an owl has been lodged in his
chimney, disturbing the sleep of the house-
hold with weird cries and well---owl sounds.
But every time, the professor tries to dis-
lodge the visitor, the owl just moves farther
up the chimney.
Things have come to a pretty pass, with
the professor and his wife, not only losing
sleepfrom the noise, but spending all day
chasing the bird.
The professor closed his apology with a
brief plea for help "from any student who
is a capable owl-remover."

Mnenormic Aid
The topical allusion - one of Shake-
speare's favorite devices - was put to
effective use by our history instructor
the other day. Making an offhand refer-
ence to Charles 11, he was greeted by sev-
al blank looks. But he cleared everything
up by adding, "You know - Charles II
of 'Forever Amber' fame."
Floor Scraping
WE WITNESSED a near scrape of two
cars at the narrow entrance to the Un-
ion drive behind the new administration
building. One of the cars backed up and
turned around, and we could hear the driv-
er say in a very apologetic tone, "I tried to
cut around, but I didn't see you in time."
We wondered slightly at the driver's sor-
ry attitude, as it really wasn't his fault, and
noted as he passed that he Was an enlisted
man connected with the local military unit.
But all became clear when we glanced at
the other driver. He was a lieutenant-col-
onel.

NIGHT EDITOR: NAOMI STERN

Not Enough Room

ACCORDING to rough estimates printed
in The Daily yesterday, it seems that
the two big dances held at the I-M building
last week-end did not get the reception they
expected from the student body. Though
the actual figures have not been released,
both dances probably did not sell their full
quota of tickets. Though there were many
other factors operating which probably
hampered attendance, one of the causes
seems to be that both dances were held on
the same week-end.
This was unavoidable. The fact that both
dances were allowed the use of the I-M
building on consecutive evenings was in it-
self a compromise. The respective commit-
tees had no choice but to accept the situa-
tion.
The problem can be very easily general-
ized. The truth of the matter is that there
is really no adequate place where social

events of that size can be held at the
University of Michigan without compet-
ing among themselves and with the activ-
ities of the athletic plant.
The I-M building is a gymnasium, primary
concern of which is the athletic activities of
the students. When sports events are sched-
uled, social activities such as dances must
look for another hall. But where? The cam-
pus has no other accommodations for very
large social functions. Therefore they com-
pete for the few available dates when the
building is open, and thus we have the
fiasco of last week-end.
Outside of sports, the recreational facili-
ties here are completely inadequate for
twenty thousand students. What this cam-
pus needs is a new recreation center large
enough to meet the ever-growing demands
of an ever-growing student body.
-Sheila Millman.

MATTER OF FACT:
The Mayors of Genzano

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
Searching Within.
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
AM CONVINCED that the public is hun-
grily looking into its own heart for an-
other and happier solution to the world
problem, for something to take the place of
the dismal answers which have lately been
given to it.
There is an extraordinary interest in un-
official political activity, in unofficial per-
sonalities and in unofficial plans. Recently
I suggested the holding of a model peace
conference, at which a dozen eminent Amer-
icans would try, by the application of heart
and brain power, to work up a draft of a
treaty on the basis of which peace could
conceivably be made between ourselves and
Russia. The many hundreds of lettets I
have received exhibit an almost unanimous
joy over the unofficial character of the
plan, over the thought that fresh people,
fresh uncommittted minds, would go to
work on the problem and try to solve it.
And is this not related in some way to
the fantastic presidential election situa-
tion, in which most of the public interest
centers around men who are not in high
policy-making office, or not even in poli-
tics, around men who were never conceded
a chance by the professionals or who
don't even want the Presidency?
The election picture, as of now, has some
of our most seasoned political observers
gaping. They confess that they have never
seen anything like the support that has de-
veloped around the figure of Eisenhower,
that it is an unprecedented phenomenon.
This, for a man who has left the govern-
ment, and about whom you cannot even say
with surety which party he favors.
Further down the line, the evidence runs
in the same direction. The top Republican
in the Wisconsin primary turns out to be
Stassen, who is certainly not considered a
top Republican by any of the top Repub-
licans. The support which Wallace has de-
veloped-another great surprise of the year
-tells a similar story. Even on the conserv-
ative side, the interest in General MacAr-
thur shows the same tropism, the anxious
search for someone outside the ranks of the
regulars.
And the one man (and this is very sur-
prising, if you look at it objectively) who is
generally conceded no chance at all to win
is the President, who has given his name to
the Truman Doctrine, foundation of our
current policy.
There is something going on, eiough to
induce a quiver in the nerve-ends of any-
one who has followed these matters for a
couple of decades. It is not, I think, active
opposition to Mr. Truman, or even to his
policy. I don't even believe the public, in
any specific way, objects to anything that
has been done; there is nothing it can put
its finger on, and say, that was it. But it
is, I believe, a kind of doubt, an unformed
worry, a feeling that something has gone
wrong, in so deep and elusive a way that
the best hope is to start fresh, with some-
one new. The public has no specific crit-
icism to make, but it does seem to have a
tremendous hunch that it would like to
start over again.
The interest in the unofficial peace con-
ference idea (about which there may be an
announcement soon) is, I believe, a twig
off the same branch. Democracy, deeply
concerned, is looking into its own heart. And
what a wonderful thing democracy is, too-
always full of surprises, even for those who
feel they understand it best, and that they
know exactly what it wants.

Phrase Fits
"BLOOD, sweat and tears" is a phrase
which has received quite a tossing
around in describing the striving of peo-
ples but there is perhaps one group on
campus to which it might really apply.
The "sweat" of the phrase can certainly
apply to the work of the United World Fed-
eralists in bringing closer to the University
their dream of a world federation. Through
a constant flow of literature, open meetings,
speakers and intergroup activity, the Fed-
eralists have put the issues of world federa-
tion or world chaos squarely before the eyes
of the public.
The "blood" of the phrase may well refer
to the pints at $17.50 a donor that are being
contributed en masse by the Federalists in
order to finance their latest venture of a
three day World Government College Fo-
rum.
Only the "tears" of the three adjectives
remain to be applied. It need not be includ-
ed in an analysis of UWF if their goal of
universal peace is realized.
-Phyllis Kulick.
A TOUCHY SUBJECT any time, price-
and-wage control is doubly so in this

By STEWART ALSOP
WHETHER OR NOT he runs in Novem-
ber, President Harry S. Truman has
already faced a formidable political op-
ponent in the Italian hill town of Genzano,
about an hour out of Rome. Two slogans
are painted on Genzano's walls. One reads
"A vote for the People's Front is a vote for
Stalin." The other reads "A vote for the
Republicans is" a vote for Truman." Both
statments are, in a sense, entirely accurate.
Although the Italian vote is not complete-
ly counted as this is written, it seems prob-
able that the Communists have been de-
feated in Italy as a whole. On the other
hand, in Genzano, there is no doubt at all
that President Truman has suffered a
smashing defeat. We may console ourselves
with the thought that the. rest of Italy
has not gone the way of Genzano; yet the
fact remains that there are hundreds of
other Genzanos dotted all over Italy. Even
if De Gasperi returns to office, Italy will
be like a patient who does not die of his
disease but continues to stiffer from a per-
manent low infection capable of flaring up
at any time. It is vital, from the standpoint
of American policy, to know why.
In Genzano, two of the reasons are the
ex-mayors of the town, Signor Ercole de
Santis and Signor Mario Colacchi. Signor
de Santis was mayor until a few days ago,
when he was arrested on the charge of
denying the ballot to some four hundred
anti-Communists among the Genzano cit-
izenry. Before him Signor Colacchi served.
Signor Colacchi was arrested for hiding a
cache of arms against the day when his
fellow Communists in Genzano might
need them. Signor Colacchi spent thirty-
seven days in jail, but Signor de Santis
is still somewhat mysteriously at large.
Signors de Santis and Colacchi are both
genial fellows. They are also, clearly, very
ix .

tough men. In this they differ markedly
from such colleagues as Signor Gino Grec-
chi, Communist leader of Aprilia, or Signor
Malvito Vecchierelli, Communist mayor of
nearby Anzio. Signor Grecchi is a likable,
painfully shy local farmer. He was care-
fully dressed in his ill-fitting Sunday best
for the voting. Anzio's mayor Vecchierelli,
if he lived in the United States, might well
be a successful salesman, a booster and a
member of many clubs and fraternal organ-
izations, for he has a broad smile, a booming
amiability and the easy instinctive charm
of the born politician.
One difference between Signors de San-
tis and Colacchi and Signors Grecchi and
Vecchierelli is that Genzano is heavily
Communist, whereas Aprilia and Anzio
are not. Another difference is that Grec-
chi and Vecchierelli are amateur Com-
munists. De Santis and Colacchi are pro-
fessionals.
In a word, de Santis and Colacchi have
steered their candidate in the Genzano elec-
tions, Josef Stalin, to a smashing victory
over his opponent, President Harry S. Tru-
man. Yet surely the neatly dressed man
from Missouri had every advantage over the
son of the Georgian priest.
Working for Truman were: Almost $2,-
000,000,000 in American relief for Italy; a
strongly pro-American Italian government;
the western stand on Trieste; the whole
power of the immensely powerful Catholic
Church, and freedom. Working against
Stalin were: the Soviet claim for repara-
tions and part of the Italian navy; tens of
thousands of Italian prisoners of war rotting
in the Russian camps; Trieste; the govern-
ment and church, and slavery. Yet the vot-
ers of Genzano, a Catholic town of peasants
and small merchants, voted overwhelmingly
for Stalin.
Suffering under these handicaps, Stalin,
not Truman. carries Genzano. Furthermore,
it is pretty clear that with the Marshall plan
already passed, the United States cannot do
much more for Italy than has already been
done. The rest is up to the Italians, pro-
viding the non-Communists get a sufficient
majdrity to make a stable government. The
Italians themselves must change the minds
of Genzano.
Most of the Communist voters of Gen-
zanoa are amateur Communists, like Sig-
nors Grecchi and Vecchierelli. They have
been driven to Communism simply be-
cause Communism promises change from
the intolerable present. The new Italian
government must make the present tol-
erable, if we are to be sure that the can-
didates of Signors de Santis and Col-
acchi cannot win in the end. And here, as
usual, the American government also un-

Tenits Furor
To the Editor:
Why not install tennis me-
ters-like parking meters? We
could use the net posts that are
already there . . . Since my atti-
ttide is almost as commercial as
tihe Athletic' Department's, I think
I'm entitled to a ten per cent cut
of the additional swag for sug-
gesting the idea.
-T. J. Kleinhans
* -* *
I am not a tennis player, but
I'd hate to see the dear Univer-
sity miss out on making money
in these hard days. So I am going
to take up tennis, and although
I haven't any money I think they
would take my blood at 25c a
quart--they could realize a small
profit, and I could play tennis.
-R. B. Moore.
* * *
... If the University can afford
to financially back such tradi-
tional money losers as baseball,
track, etc.. it certainly seems rea-
sonable to expect the University
to offer tennis facilities without
insisting on collecting a fee for
their upkeep.
Furthermore, I believe the great
game of table tennis is being com-
pletely neglected here on campus
where there is such a preponder-
ance of good table tennis players.
The facilities at the Union . .
are totally lacking because of the
crowded conditions and the in-
adequacy of the lighting system.
Therefore my suggestion is that
the University clear out one of
the infrequently used rooms of
the Intramural Building and equip
it for the playing of . . . table
tennis.
-C. Kenneth Massey, Jr.
. .. It is my opinion that this
is the worst trick that has been
pulled on the students since I first
attended, the University three
years ago .
After all the Athletic cor-
poration owes its extensive income
to the efforts of a group of stu-
dents on this campus. A little bit
of arithmetic shows that (the
$60,000 amounts to theproceeds
from only one third of the seats
at one of the six home games last
fall .. -
-John F. Kephart.
WE THINK it is awful that a
large school like the Univer-
sity collects a sports fee from each
students' tuition and then charges
us for the use of their tennis
courts . . . It seems the cost of
playing tennis has followed the
cost of living but I don't see the
relationship.
-Beth Waters.
Pat Rendell.

OPEN LETTER to H. O Crisler:
A very definite responsi-
bility of the Athletic Department
is the general health of all the
students. We are sure you under-
stand this and consequently it is
difficult for us to appreciate on
what grounds the Board sees fit
to discourage participation in
tennis.
The number of students who
play tennis is quite large; possibly
larger than any other single sport.
You may be quite sure that the
improvement in the condition of

the courts was greatly appreciat-
ed. However, the policy of charg-
ing admission to the courts is one
that inflicts a considerable finan-
cial hardship on most of us. In-
deed, the policy forces us to give
up a considerable part of this
healthful exercise which we enjoy
and need. . .
-H. J. Aroyan.
R. W. Hockenbury.
With sixteen courts at
Palmer Field in continuous use,
I am sure that a lucrative salary
for the attendants could easily be
obtained. Lower the charge and
you will keep your employees at
work and your tennis players
-Dolores Stahl.
To the Editor:
W HAT PALMER FIELD needs is
a double row of barbed wire,
land mines and a fifty foot square
neon sign proclaiming, "MEN

FORBIDDEN TO TRESPASS ON
THIS SACRED PROPERTY."
They can make you play tennis
with a von;i I can see that.
They can charge you t\vo bits an -
hour; I can see that if there is a
ten foot guard to twist my arm;
BUT. when I am peacefully putt-
ing two paIls around the putting
green, all by myself, and not a
soul around, (I am also being
caieful not to disturb the beau-
tifully arlanged blades of grass) -
and a very kindly old lady screams
"This puttinlg green is for women
only, you'll have to leave," THIS
IS THE END! Where are the poor
persecuted men supposed to prac-
tice? I have not noticed any putt-
ing greens for men only. Maybe
we are supposed to gambol about
the diag, gaily chipping golf balls
at the trees, using squirrels as tar-
gets. I don't know. Will some dear
soul please tell me the rules? Just
where may males tread in peace?

Fight Discrinminatioll
To the Editor:

''_

MR. RANDOLPH and Mr. Rey-
nolds have done us a patriotic
service in dramatizing before the
Senate Armed Services Committee
one of the deplorable weaknesses,
of our counti'y.
Russia and the Communists
have made our segregation pol-
icies one of their main talking
points when they have wished to
place us in international disre-
pute. In this they have been ef-
fective not because of their skill,
but because of the conditions
which they speak about-the seg-
regation in our armed services, a
segregation carried out by federal
law and responsible only to that
law, is especially vulnerable to
such attacks.
In the next war national ideals
will be vital issues. If our armed
forces have not by that time
changed their policy of discrimi-
nation, they will not be- strong
and effective. There will be dis-
unity on the home front, and
people will question and doubt the
"democratic ideals" being fought.
for.
Now-we have time to rectify
this situation while we are still at
peace. Recognizing the supreme
interest of the country involved,
I, therefore, pledge myself to pas-
sively resist selective service and
universal military training as
long as their present policies to-
ward the Negro citizen of our
country continues.
