Expediency Wmins Again

'HE KU KLUX Klan has just won an
~ important battle in its struggle for sur-
ival. Last week in Georgia the Columbus
edger-Enquirer droppedrthe court charge3
gainst the Klan-charges brought by
free of the Ledger's own reporters-and in
doing gave tacit approval to the Klan's
olicy of ruthless suppression of all news
rifavorable to itself.
'hie whole thing started a month ago
hen the three reporters got wind of a big
lan initiation being held at Pine Moun-
din, 37 miles from Columbus. Hastening to
ae spot, they were able to identify several
rominent citizens among the white-sheeted
:lansmen, but were nabbed as soon as they
arted taking pictures of the dignitaries.
'ditorials published in The Michigan Daily
re written by members of The Daily staff
nd represent theviews of the writers only.

From then on the Klans,en were swift,
brutal, and efficient. They seized the news-
men, forced them to drink a pint of liquor
apiece, put them in their car, drove them
to the outskirts of town and left them
there. Arrested almost immediately for
drunkenness, the men were bailed out by
their city editor. The Ledger carried the
story in headlines the next day, and im-
mediately began court action in behalf of
its reporters.
Last week the case was dropped by the
Ledger's attorneys without even consulting
of newsmen. Apparently taking the world
of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation that
the case would be impossible to win because
the Klan would be able to furnish about 175
witnesses against the reporters, the Ledger
management has thus placed itself in a
position of passive acceptance of the Klan's
policies.
Expediency still means more than justice
in the newspaper business, it seems.

Legitimate Gripe

rHE PERENNIAL GRIPERS are at it
again.
But this time, perhaps, they have a case
Dr themselves. Because they weren't the
ly ones who didn't appreciate the manner
1 which the sophomore examinations were
ven on Tuesday.
First of all, the two big reasoning tests,
hih required real thought, were saved for
he afternoon session. The factual tests were
dministered during the 8 to 12 a.m. period.
ot much deep thought was actually re-
uired.
The afternoon tests, however, were only
wo in number-the social studies compre-
ension and natural science comprehension.
,e-reading, weighing of points and objec-
ve reasoning were generally necessary to
each conclusions. At least one of these
sts should have been given in the morning
hen students were still reasonably rested.
The second complaint, and probably the

loudest, was that the tests were given all
in one day-seven to eight hours of exams,
which is pretty solid. By the end of the
afternoon, most weary sophomores were
ready to flip a coin for each multiple
choice and let it go at that.
Therefore, if the same tests are given to
next year's sophomores, two suggestions:
first, if they must be given in one day,
schedule reasoning problems first. Second,
even at the expense of breaking up two days
of classes, spread out the tests over a longer
period.
If the University wants accurate results
with some indication of how much soph-
omores really have learned, they will at
least start with a much better attitude
among the students. Just looking forward
to eight hours of tests has a negative
effect on most people.

Stropping Needed

OHN L. LEWIS should be sent to jail.
It's time the court and the government
aught a long-over due lesson in respect
nd obedience to law to the old bituminous
Aaron and to all the other labor leaders who
le to "out Lewis" each other in shouting
to hell with you" at the people of this
ountry.
"If the Court was to use its individual
judgment, it would impose prison sent-
ence upon (you)" Judge Goldsborough_
tolj Lewis Tuesday. "But the Court is
only one man, one individual. So the
ourt feels it should adopt the recommen-
dations made by the Government."
The Government's recommendations
were read to the Court before sentence was
were read to the ourt before sentence was
pronounced and, according to the Associat-
d Press, they reportedly had been dis-
ussed at a top-level meeting of President
ruman's cabinet.

"THIS HAPPY BREED," with Robert
Newton, and Celia Johnson.
HIS HAPPY BREED is a Noel Coward
story of a middle-class English family
juring the twenty some years between the
wo World Wars. Not always happy, but al-
ways real, the Gibbons family is followed
hrough their marriages, deaths, troubles
ind the every day incidents that make up
Irama in ordinary lives, with contemporary
world events brought in to enliven each era
f the story. The Coward touch is evident
n much of the dialogue, and the episode
before the son's wedding is to my mind
bout the finest movie scene of the year.
But what makes "This Happy Breed" an
)utstanding and worthwhile picture is the
uperior acting of the entire cast. Each of
hem bring to their role a sincerity and
killful artistry that makes their characters
ive long after the closing scene, and leaves,
he audience feeling that "This Happy
3reed" is a happy experience in movie-go-

The Administration, the story continues,
was generally believed to have urged
against a jail sentence on the grounds that
it almost certainly would mean another
mine strike which would stop the flow of
coal needed for national defense work and
foreign aid.-
The time has come for the Government
to realize that the integrity and reputa-
tion for honest justice of the legal system
of this country is more important than'
keeping coal miners in the pits or even
the risk of making Lewis a martyr. The
labor situation is seriously out of hand
when the Administration weakly admits
that a Federal court can be intimidated
in dealing with an individual by what
his supporters may do in retaliation.
The first time Lewis ignored the Court,
he and his union had to pay a $710,000 fine,
which would make quite a profound im-
pression on you or me. Lewis, however.
bounced right back in spite of the fine and
committed the same contempt of court
again less than two years later. Throwing
fines at him is like throwing darts at an
elephant.
Judge Goldsborough knew this and it is
why he wanted to put Lewis in jail and hit
him where it might have hurt-in his pride
instead of his pocketbook. But the Govern-
ment said "no" and so a bigger fine was
leveled which Lewis probably hardly even
heard. In fact I'll bet the only part of the
money Lewis himself ever pays is a three-
cent stamp to mail the UMW check to the
Treasury.
That Lewis is afraid of jail is shown by
his attempt to keep the miners at work at
least until today when he comes up to face
sentence on civil contempt. A 10 or 20 day
jail sentence handed to him might cause
some further disruption of coal production
but that is no new story to us. Much more
important, the jail sentence would be a
more vigorous move toward preventing one
man's defiance of the people and thus pro-
moting a more evenly balanced industrial
economy than has yet been made by the
present Administration.
Here's hoping that from now on if John
L. Lewis leans back and roars a Shakes-
pearean oath of defiance in the face of the
constitution and legal system-and that the
government will allow the Judge a free
hand to throw the book at him.

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
No Reprieve
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
THE RESULTS o te itaiiain lehoi-.
com like a reprieve, a release fam care,
a lucky spin of a coin. There is a collketive
Western sigh. And no wthat the elections
are over, it seems to me that there was
something about the whole affair that was
not good for the dignity of the United
States; something about the way we wited
for the returns, clung to the wires to learn
the fate of our generation by telegraph.
listened, as if for a sound through the
night.i
There was something humiliating in the
way we crossed our fingers, and shook our
heads; something humiliating even in the
feeling of relief at the end. We were hping
for a break. We got it. But we, should not
need breaks. Our futures ought not to be
subject to anything so chancy as the last-
minute flurries and cross-currents of im-
provised campaigning in a country far
away.
If we are going to set up any new
sights for our foreign policy following the
Italian elections, one of them ought to be
a determination to prevent the recur-
rence of a period of dismay, such as this
one was. We ought not to have to go
through anything like it again. And the
way to do that, it seems to me, is so to
conduct ourselves and our policies that
there can not again be any reasonable
doubt as to how any nation whose civili-
zation is at all similar to ours will vote.
We could make a beginning, I think, by
giving up some of our cheerful blatting
about the "cold war." The Italian election
was like a battle, and we waited for the
news of its outcome as one waits for news
from a battlefield. But since the cold war
continues, there must soon be other battles,
in Italy and elsewhere. An unening per-
spective of cold war is an unening perspec-
tive of such battles. It means persistent.
fear for the future o nthe part of all people,
our friends as well as those who oppose us;
it means endless alarms and excursions,
mobilizations and counter-mobilizations.
It means that for the entire foreseeable
future, every street fight in Europe must
have a lurid significance for us; it will be
important for its possible effect on the cold
war, and it will be the cold war which
makes it important, and perhaps rouses
both sides to greater efforts.
If we were to change over from prosecu-
tion of the cold war to a deliberate search
for peace, it seems to me that we might, get
more done, and get it done more quickly.
We have already, as shown by the Mar-
shall Plan, made a discovery of the import-
ance o fone of the great essentials, bread.
We are now trying to establish the thought
that where we are, there is bread. But peace
is also one of the essentials. If we could
establish the idea that where we are there'
LS both peace and bread, ten we would
really be in a position to make vast gains,
and there would then be no doubt as to how
elections would run.
To demand peace of the Soviet Union,
to offer and to request major confer-
ences, to present draft peace plans, tire-
lessly, and tirelessly to request peace
meetings, promising always to be the last
to leave, would be to lift our "cold war" to
a significantly higher lievel, to make it
one with the war which the ordinary
people of the world have always and ev-
erywhere had to wage for a portion of
security and surcease.
There are those who would call such a
change of line appeasement. Such men are
ignorant of the powerful side-effects, to
consider no other, of the cry for peace.
Thesy do not understand that if we are
thoughtless, and let our opponent make the
demand for peace his own, he will wield it

like a sword.

AMERICAN MANNERS and morals have
a habit of making themselves felt on
the international level in devious, subtle
ways. An example of this phenomenon in
operation was apparent Monday night when
the foreign students at the University pre-
sented their annual International Pageant.
Among the many colorful numbers in the
revue was one depicting an Arab village
scene and among the Arabs there assembled
was one dressed majestically in the garb of
a shiek.
He was wearing the traditional Arab head
gear and flowing white robes and he was
convincingly puffing a water pipe but when
he rose to address some of the cast, we no-
ticed that he was wearing a pair of bril-
liantly colored argyles.

Irresponsible Press
To the Editor:
ONE SMALL example of the
"free and responsible" Amer-
ican press: after most of the pa-
pers carried hysterical headlines
blaming the recent revolt in Co-
lombia on the Communists, one
finds on page 10 of the New York
Times for Wednesday, April 14t1
the following:
"Highly placed officials of Co-
lombia here disclosed that the
assassin of Dr. Gaitan had been a
member of the Conservative Party
from the province of Santander."
Hitler's Reichstag fire techniqu
has apparently been well learned.

Campaign Suggestion
To the Editor:-
ISSESKatz and Stern havw
suggested a campus rally as
possible means of famniliarizin
the student body with the Stud
ent Legislature candidate. Thi
plan shows some possibilities, hu
it has been my experience tha
often the better showman gain
the election and this person ma
or may not be the best suited fo
the position. He is generally th
person who seeks office only fo.
prestige or activity honors.
There is nevertheless a definite
need for some plan by whic
candidates can be effectively
labeled as to the abilities an
policies. Many students fallac-
iously consider the Student Leg-
islature to be an important bod
and take no part in the elections
Of those who do show some in.
terest in student governmen
note blindly for a familiar sound-
ing name or a person of simila
national politcal beliefs.
The editors of the Daily hav
it within their power to aid th
individual students in their sel-
ection by requesting interest
candidates to express their view
or a major campus matter (a:
picketing by groups, politica
speakers ban, etc.) in a few word
and printing them in the place o
the usual worthless lines con
cerning past offices on hig
school committees.
The editors of the Daily hav
taken one step in the proper di-
rections by printing a series of
articles on the Student Legisla-
ture by Miss Stern, I hope that
they will not retire at that point.

No 'Cold JTar'
To the Editor:
HARRIET FRIEDMAN'S Sun-
day article on the Italian elec-
tion smacks remarkably of TIME
and LIFE. For it was the arro-
gant advocates of "The American
Century" who popularized the dis-
torted distinction of the "East and
West."
That distinction has no basis in
geographical or cultural fact. What
the Luce boys mean, and what
Miss Friedman apparently accepts
is that the world is divided up be-
tween the United States and the
Soviet Union; that a "cold war" is
in effect, the Soviet Union aggres-
sively spreading totalitarianisl
and the United States staunch

defending democracy. And the
Italian people, according to this
concept, are forced to choose be-
tween the two.
Yet Miss Friedman approaches
the truth.when she writes: "But
the problem for the voter wasn't
answered by Russia or America,
The Italian masses are looking for
something concrete in the way of
economic progress."
There is a "cold war"-it is the
same struggle that three years ag
we called the anti-fascist war. I
is the struggle of the democratic
masses throughout Europe against
the forces of monopoly capita'
within their borders; it is the
worldwide struggle of people ev-
erywhere against an aggressive
American imperialism.
For the aim of the Truman Doc-
trine and the Marshall Plan is
more markets for American in-
vestment ;that's imperialism, anc
millions have learned that imper-
ialism means economic exploita
tion and loss of political freedom
The "cold war" is being fough

in this country where daily more
people join the Wallace move-
ment. Many of us have learned
that the American face of the
Marshall Plan is the Taft-Hartley
Act, the loyalty probe and the
draft. And we can see that a for-
eign policy dedicated to bigger
and better profits leads inevitably
to bigger and better atom bombs.
Are we choosing between "East
and West"?

Palestine
To the Editor:
ONE that follows the discus-
sions on the Palestinian prob-
lem in the U.N. sessions can
-learly see the tricks followed by
^ertain countries to keep Pales-
tine controlled by imperialistic
)owers.
These countries look to the
>roblem for their interests and
'enefits in Palestine, and are
'ompletely ignoring the people of
?alestine.
It must be remembered that
he British imperialism is the
)ne that created the complicated
?alestinian problem by encour-
tging - the zionist movement in
?alestine and distinguishing be-
ween Arabs and Jews. British-
'mperialism and its tool Zionism,
tre responsible for all the traged-
es in Palestine, and the Pales-
;inian problem can never be solv-
d if this fact is ignored. It is the
3ritish imperialism that granted
,he Balfour Declaration for a
newish National Home in Pal-
:stine, and there were no zion-
sts in Palestine before that de-
;laration.
British imperialism which
hows itself at the presenttime,
o be against partition cannot
leny that it worked for partition
'll during its occupation and
;hat it tried to accomplish it in
i more dangerous way by having
wo states under British control.
The people of Palestine are
seeking for their independence;
.hey do not want any imperialis-
ic or zionist roots in the country
and they are against any foreign
interference.
The U.N. must consider the
aroblem from the standpoint of
aeople being killed daily in Pal-
;stine, homes and numerous
wilding damaged. It must co-
der the terrible economical sit-
ration that the country is meet-
.ng now. No other solution can be
satisfactory other than the dec-
laration of the Independence of
?alestine and the evacuation of
3ritish troops and the formation
3f a democratic government rep-
:esenting the people of Palestine
egardless of their religious be-
iefs.
