Some Action Needed

Tl"HE UN, beginning in the, clouds, has
been getting closer and closer to reality
in facing the Palestine issue, until now
they are talking of action.
With full-scale fighting being waged up
and down the Holy Land for the last month,
the people at Lake Success, especially the
American delegation, are finding that mere-
ly recommending a truce and letting it go
at that doesn't work-Not when there are
two groups with the conflicting interests
of the Arabs and Jews, already past the
stage of talking.
The British are supposed to give up
their mandate in less than three weeks.
The most pious pronouncements from the
Foreign Office in London have made that
clear. If the British do get out on May
15, they will surrender what power they
now have to a non-existent UN police
force. The only forces in the Holy
Land then will be Arab and Jewish armies.
Haganah troops have thus far shown
themselves to be better fighters than the
Arabs. Unless the Jews run out of equip-
ment, there is little reason to believe that
the Arabs will fare any better in the future
than they have in the last month.
The threat of an all-out Holy War against
the Jews seems to have degenerated into a
plea by Arab forces in Palestine for help
from neighboring Arab rulers. A struggle for
leadership within the Arab ranks, with all
the attendant jealousies and disputes seems
to be under way.

NIGHT EDITOR: BEN ZWERLING

The UN will soon have to take some
action. It has no police force and is not
likely to get one and after a few months
of fighting, the only power in Palestine
may very well be the Haganah. If the
UN waits long enough, it may find itself
faced with a de facto government formed
by the Jewish Agency, holding sovereign
powers over the disputed area.
The supreme test of Jewish strength will
come when the British-trained army of
Trans-Jordan attacks Palestine. If the Ha-
ganah can withstand the Arab assaults of
the next few weeks, they will virtually have
won the war in the Holy Land.
Then, the only thing that the UN will be
able to do is recognize the Jewish Agency
and the Haganah as the legal government
and military agencies in Palestine. This
would please the Jews but hardly the Arabs.
And it will pull another prop out from
under the already shaky foundations of the
UN. Waiting until something happens and
then recognizing de facto governments is
not exactly an aggressive policy.
There is a way out of the UN's predica-
ment. Recognition of the Haganah as a
UN force now would save the face of the
- UN and might stop future bloodshed. As
official UN force, the Haganah could
probably be talked into setting up a Jew-
ish state within the partition zone.
As matters now stand, with the tide pf
battle flowing in the same direction in
which it started, UN officials may soon see
a victorious Jewish Army standing on the
borders of Palestine proper, casting inter-
ested glances at the rich Arabian oil land
beyond.

WASHINGTON WIRE:
inant 's Calibre

By IRVING JAFFE
WASHINGTON, April 27-I had the good
fortune today to talk with someone who
for months was closely associted with John
G. Winant, wartime Ambassador to Eng-
land and, later, U.S. delegate to the United
Nations Economic and Social Council.
Winant, who committed suicide a num-
ber of months ago, was perhaps one of the
very few men of our time entitled to the
honor of being called "great." In a world
grasping in anguish for moral certainties,
the moral force generated by Winant's dig-
nity, his humility and his overwhelming
sense of responsibility for the sufferings of
his fellow men was possibly unsurpassed
throughout the world.
The person with whom I talked today
was a young woman who served as Winant's
secretary after he returned from his post as
envoy and during the time he was with the
UN. She was not his "private" or "personal"
secretary-he had no use for the fancy la-
bels many small-time business executives
glory in-she was just his secretary, and
the only one at the time.
What she said gave concrete illustration
to the qualities for which Winant is uni-
versally celeb'ated. She had an especially
fond recollection of one of Winant's habits.
The secretary often did her work in a little
study at the back of Winant's New York
Current Movies]
At the State.. .
"SO WELL REMEMBERED," with Martha
Scott and John Mills.
THIS IS THE JAMES Hilton tale of an
English mill town, and some twenty
odd years in the lives of the ornery Livia,
who thinks she can swing the world by
her own particular string, and idealistic
George, who is all out for humanity. Their
brief marriage, his career and the crossing
of their paths with the next generation
shapes up into a better than average movie
adaptation. Martha Scott gets the cyanide
capsule of the year as the thoroughly hate-
ful snob and schemer, and John Mills is a
most credible and kindly soul. The minor
roles are well cast, and if you didn't get
around to the book, it's well worth viewing
here.
-Gloria Hunter.
At the Mihi an .
FRIEDA, David Farrar, Mai Zetterling.
THIS IS ANOTHER English import-a
product of J. Arthur Rank (as what
British pictures aren't?). The film is based
on the question, are there good Germans
and bad ones, or are they all Nazis at heart?
The British point of view is strongly evident
here-after five years of war it is difficult
for them to think anything except evil of
the Germans, as the story illustrates.
It concerns the return of a British flyer
to his home town and the social problems

apartment. Whenever a guest dropped in to
see Winant-and the guests were often
among the world's political luminaries-
he would never call his secretary in to see
the visitor. Instead, he invariably took the
guest back to the study to introduce him to
her. One of these guests, she recalls, was
Anthony Eden, whom she remembers as
"very, very British."
She also remembers how ready Winant
was to praise-but words of condemnation
never left his lips. When he had cause to
censure or to criticize he kept his own coun-
sel.
To me the most' significant remark she
made was prompted by our discussion of
Winant's mysterious suicide. She felt, along
with many others, that Winant had been
terribly depressed by the condition of the
world. But, more than that, she felt that
he wanted so much to devote all his energies
to helping solve the gigantic problems faced
by his nation and the world-and yet he
was denied by the present Administration
the opportunity to use his abilities where
they could be of greatest service.
This comment was significant to me be-
cause it points up-in this case with an
emphasis intensified by a personal tragedy
-the appalling waste of men of. stature,
men who are so desperately needed in im-
portant government positions. While Presi-
dent Truman appoints military men and
men whose vision is tempered by the
silver of hard cash, men of Winant's calibre
are overlooked or placed in relatively minor
posts.
Secretary of State Marshall is a man of
stature-but it is the stature of a great mili-
tary leader who has not molded his life
by the training or the ways of peace. Who
can say how much genuine good will might
have been engendered throughout the world
if such a man as Winant had been Secretary
of State?

SENSITIVE ARTISTRY and near-perfect
technical skill combined to make the
May Festival opening concert last night
by far the best performance heard in Ann
Arbor this year.
Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia
Orchestra (with one of the finest string
sections in the country) opened the concert
with an unusually fine and equally well-
played arrangement of the Bach D-minor
Toccata and Fugue. Outstanding conductor-
orchestra cooperation made for excellent
timing, and the entire group, as one, entered
into the spirit of the classic form to produce
an effective and strikingly enjoyable result.
The enchanting Brazilian soprano Bido
Sayao revealed in her Mozart and Gounod
arias, an immense warmth and deep under-
standing of the music. Although lacking
somewhat in power, her very evident sin-
cerity and the pureness and clarity of her
tones resulted in a highly satisfactory per-
formance.
In her later numbers, Miss Sayao height-
ened her first fine impression with several
Brazilian folk songs and, as encores, two

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
Wall Policy
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
THERE ARE SOME among us who have
dreamed up a dream, a plan for living.
It is to build a wall around half a world
to keep Russia out. The wall has three lay-
ers..At the outer edges stand our occupation
armies in Germany, and our military aid
programs for Greece and Turkey, and, fi-
nally, China. The next layer is to consist
of the Marshall Plan nations, to be gingered
up with our economic aid to a point at
which they can resist Russian ideological
and military pressure. Inside this layer (next
to the skin, so to speak) there is to be a
mighty American air force, its engines dron-
ing perpetually in the sky, carrying our
soundest young men, those with the sharpest
eyes, to keep unending watch.
Insulation has replaced isolation, in other
words, and the plan, as laid out on paper,
resembles a house wall filled in with rock
wool, or a heavy garment, with a sheep-
skin turned under the lining.
It sounds fairly practical. But now,
suddenly, strange things are beginning to
happen behind the wall. In Washington
we see the odd spectacle of the House of
Representatives trying to force $822,000,-
000 more on Defense Secretary Forrestal
than he wants immediately. It is not that
Mr. Forrestal wouldn't like to have the
money. And it is not that his chiefs of
staff aren't quite anxious to get it, for
additional planes. But it happens that
Mr. Forrestal believes this appropriation
(coming as an extra, on top of all previous
ones) has inflationary potentialities. He
feels that if Congress is going to go any
further in this direction, we shall need
economic controls, and he passes the
choice back to it.
But there remains the curious sight of the
Congress urgently trying to give the military
more money than its chief civilian officer
feels it can safely handle right away, trying
to go $822,000,000 above the program the
chiefs of staff have, however reluctantly,
compromised on.
How high do walls have to be, anyway?
Never enough, is perhaps the answer. You
take a fresh look in the morning, and the
wall suddenly seems low, and you want
$822,000,000 more worth built on. The wall
policy, which is supposed to make us feel
secure, leaves us feeling as jumpy as if we
didn't have it.
And the vote by which the additional
$822,000,000 was offered by the House, 343
to 3, also seems tense; one distrusts near-
Unanimous votes in legislative bodies; they
aren't normal, and are sometimes a sign of
uncertainty rather than certainty.nThe
whole picture is enough to make one feel
that a policy of working for peace, in a
direct, explicit way, might, on the whole,
make us feel safer than does the policy of
building that fine fat wall.
THERE IS OTHER evidence that walls
don't really ease minds, or soothe spirits.
The House Un-American Activities Commit-
tee is apparently preparing a bill that would
make a virtual outlaw, so far as many civil
rights are concerned, of almost anybody
who took almost any sort of left position
that could be distorted to look like aid to
the Communists. And Senator Ferguson, of
Michigan, pops up with a proposal that the
top 64 officials of the American Communist
'Party be put on trial, as a "test case" under
the statute which makes it unlawful to
seek wilfully to overthrow the government
by force and violence. And there are other
proposals of the same kind.
But the weird thing is that when we didn't
have the policy of the great wall, we didn't
seem to worry so much. Now we alternate
between feeling that the wall makes us so
strong we can resist any force in the world,

and feeling that we are so vulnerable that
the Communist Party may topple us. We
can't seem to decide whether we are strong
or weak. And always there is Congress, star-
ing at the wall, and muttering that maybe
it ought to be a bit higher, say $822,000,000
worth. We seem to sweat a little behind the
wall, as one does under too heavy clothing.
There is indeed cause to believe that we
might feel safer if we were to change our
policy to one of a direct, aggressive search
for peace, and a demand for peace. At least
we did seem more quiet in our own minds
when that was the general direction of
events, before we thought of the wall.

Eager To Oblige
To the Editor:
I AM AFRAID that Miss Parnes
slipped up by stating that she
had met "all the boys," for I have
never had thehonour. This can
be remedied, however. If the night
of October 9th is a convenient
date for Miss Parnes, I would be
only too happy to assist in mak-
ing her survey complete.
My only regrets are that my

lier oportunity.

Parade Complaint
To the Editor:
IN THE DAILY of April 27, you
1had a picture of one of the
torchlight parades we had last
Football season. All the students
that marched in the parade had a
swell time. There was only one
part of the parade that I thought
bad.
Before the parade started, the
torches Were given out to the
student marchers. Just when
everything was ready to shove off,
the members of the Student Leg-
islature in the picture stepped in
and took over the torches. They
held the torches just long enough
to have the picture taken and
then left. They didn't even see fit
to attend the rest of the rally.
I appreciate the work of or-
ganizing such a parade but it's
pretty rotten when the people
who organize it can't even attend.
Coming out just to have one's pic-
tur taken iV pretty small.
Let us see some of the new Leg-
islature members attend some of
their own doings and not try to
capture all the glory.

Callahan Committee
To the Editor:
THE CALLAHAN Committee like
the Un-American Activities
Committee is a disgrace to the
United States. It should be abol-
ished. The Callahan Committee
has adopted tactics of political
persecution, pure and simple. In
the case of its national counter-
part President Truman and Sec-
retary of Commerce Harriman
have both balked at surrendering
files on Dr. Condon. This is an
example of the extreme limits
to which such a committee can
go unless fair-minded citizens
speak out now against it. The
question directed at Mr. James
Zarichny is the same as that di-
rected at the "Hollywood Ten." A
an American fighting to defend
our Civil rights neither Mr. Zar-
ichny or the Ten Hollywood writ-
ers could answer the questions
asked any differently. For a Con-
gressional Committee to inquire
into the political beliefs of an in-
dividual is a dangerous powe
whichwas meanthto be protectec
by secrecy of the ballot. The
three Senators who voted agains
trying Mr. Zarichny should b
commended. These attacks or
Michigan educational institutions
and their student bodies shoul
be vigorously protested.

Chairman, Wallace Prog.
Alternate Solution

To the Editor:
R. ROSS does not realize that
the Michigan Union is an or-
ganization of men and not a pub-
lic utility. Visitors are treated as
are visitors of any club, hence the
policy towards the front entrance.
If Ross's heart bleeds so for that
woman unfamiliar with Union
custom, we feel that he should at
, least have offered to carry he
luggage to the side door. If h
watched this poor soul trudging
up the steps he surely should hav
guided her elsewhere, thereby sav
- ing her a trip and him a heart-
ache.

Douglas Speech
1 To the Editor:
WISH TO RECOMMEND a,
worthwhile reading the Uni
versity of Florida speech of Mr
Justice William O. Douglas. In

he demonstrates his fundamental
understanding of life itself. Life,
to him, is a process of changing
to fit reality, of attacking new sit-
nations without pre-conceived no-
tions of reality, and this process
continues up to the moment of
death. There are no certain tra-
ditions, no set pattern to which
we must cling even when it no
longer conforms with the real
world.
Douglas' conception of the
workings of democracy is thor-
oughly integrated with this pro-
cess reality view of life. For demo-
crats no one mode of action, no
one mode of thought is RIGHT.
One policy may not remain
RIGHT over a period of time
without being refitted to chang
ing conditions. Democracy em-
braces many viewpoints, many
variables, it makes the most out .
of experimentation. It changes
with the times in order to bring
the most good to the largest num-
ber of people.
This conception of democracy
constitutes Douglas' major point
in his outline of differences be-
tween democracy and Commu-
nism. Democracy allows free ex-
pression of all viewpoints, includ-
ing the Communistic, while Com-
munism itself imposes totalitarian
limitations on all endeavor not
conforming to the party line. To
Communists the central problem
is the warfare between the classes,
and the ruling power lies in the
hands of one clique; in a democ-
racy we are seeking the greatest
amount of economic prosperity for
all, while government is carried on
to achieve a proper degree of bal-
ance between the classes. In a de-
mocracy groups gain and hold
power only so long as they may
legally do so.sA Commnunlst clam-
ors for democratic methods when
he is on the outs, but he feels
justified in abolishing these 2-
way streets when hie holds the
reins of power. No law will ever
make a Communist relinquish
power.
As the proper antidote to Com-
munism, Douglas suggests meas-
ures in conformity with these
principles in order to secure the
vitality of democracy at home and
abroad. I have tried to sketch the
power of his reason.
-Donald B. Hirsch.
Good Old Days

Looking Back

I''
From the pages of The Daily
55 YEARS AGO TODAY:
University students were denied the right
to vote in local elections by the Michigan
Legislature "owing to the fact that. the
students elected some of their own number
as town officers in the recent election."
The University of Michigan bicycling club
