Campus Opinion
SOME students who voted in the Student
r Legislature elecion picked their choices
from the mass of unfamiliar names by not-
ing the viewpoints expressed by each hope-
ful on six questions asked by The Daily. As
a handy guide, the answers given by the 71
candidates were published on election day.
For math majors and students who be-
lieve in the powers of numbers, an inter-
esting picture of campus opinion on the
six problems can be obtained by compar-
ing the percentage of candidates elected
who voted "Yes" on each issue, with the
percentage for the whole candidate list.
The positive and negative difference in
percents determines to some extent whe-
ther students were favorable or unfav-
orable to each candidate's ideas.
Here is the boxscore of how much differ-
ent the percentages of those elected were
from the whole group on the questions:
1. 3% more favorable (MCAF)
2. 1% less favorable (Tennis Fees)
3. 4% less favorable (Politico Ban)
4. 15% more favorable (Beer)
5 3% less favorable (Co-Ops)
6. 11% more favorable (MYDA)
On two issues, the "Yes" candidates won
out more decisively over those that said "No."
"4. If elected, would you work on the SL
program to serve beer in the Union?"
The hopefuls said: "Yes 61%, No 21%
and No Opinion 18%.
The elected said: Yes 76%, No 19% and
No Opinion 5%.
Those that wanted beer in the Union had
a tendency to win out.
"If elected, would you work 'toward SL
action to have MYDA reinstated as a cam-
pus organization?
The hopefuls said: Yes 32%, No 47%,
and No Opinion 21%.
The elected said: Yes 43%, No. 47%, and
No Opinion 10%.
The considerable difference in the "Yes"
column indicated that many candidates
were picked for their favorable position on
the return of MYDA.
The next problem is: How many people
used The Dailys' survey of opinions. I esti-
mate 20% either used them or voted on
the basis of personal answers given by the
candidates on these issues. It is impossible
to determines the exact student opinion on
the basis of this analysis but some
interesting inferences can be drawn by the
imaginative....

Security Search
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
HE UNITED STATES is paying billions
for security. We ought, then, to decide
just what security is. When we pick up our
papers and read the speeches of the great
leaders of our day, we find many warnings
that war may break out at any time. As
General Omar N. Bradley put it the other
night before the Magazine Forum, "we live
in an age where a mountain village in
Greece, an outpost in Korea, a railroad line
into Berlin can strike sparks of grave dan-
ger to the peace of the world." This, in spite
of the billions we are spending for defense
and foreign aid; and it does not sound very
much like a structure of security.
To live (as we are coming to feel we must

live) in an atmosphete of tenseness, in which
war can flare up in any railroad waiting
room in middle Europe, or on any pass bor-
dering the Balkans, is hardly to live the
secure life. There are so many waiting
rooms, and so many mountain roads. So it
can hardly be said that our present struc-
ture of security passes the first test, which
is the test of whether it replaces uncertainty
with certainty.
There is another test on which our
structure of security, as we like to call it,
seems to fail. That is the ulcerated pock-
etbook test. No people can feel secure
unless they know how much they may be
required to spend in the near future.
Whatever security we may be getting from
the structure presently being erected, we are
not getting financial security. We are no
longer masters of our own expenditures;
they are set for us by outside circumstance.
It might almost be said that Russia, without
fighting us, and in spite of all our defensive
apparatus and foreign aid walls, is able to
compel us to spend more, year by year, than,
perhaps, we can afford.
The point of this piece is not to suggest
that we don't need national defense; it
is to suggest that while we certainly get
increased military power through our
present policies and expenditures, we are
not getting security.
How, then, can we get security? If security
is mastery over one's fate, then we can get
it, it seems to me, only by a positive, aggres-
sive search for peace. To the argument that

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

Letters to the Editor

INTERNATIONAL...
Palestine
The Palestine situation had finally broken
into the proportions of an all-out war by
week's end. Jewish forces had seized the
port of Haifa, Jaffa, and were fighting for
control of Jerusalem,
England's District Commissioner was
threatening to shell Jewish sections of the
Holy City, had already done so, supported
by planes, in Jaffa.
While the Arab states were threatening
to move in their armies from nearby Syria,
Transiordan and Lebanon, an urgent U.S.
mandate plan received tentative approval
from the UN. Calling for a UN official in
Jerusalem with the power to call in troops,
the plan met opposition from both England
and Russia.
NATIONAL ---
Complete industrial paralysis faced the
nation during May as the major labor-man-
agement differences threatened to erupt
into a wave of strikes.
The major developments during the week
were: the announcement of a UAW strike
set for May 12 at Chrysler; John L. Lewis'
call to coal operators to start negotiating a
contract to replace one expiring June 30; a
strike involving three railroad unions,
scheduled for May 11; United Electrical
Workers announcement that it had met all
the requirements for a strike against Gen-
eral Electric, Westinghouse, and General
Motors; and a stalemate in mediation in
the 47-day-old meat handlers strike.
Politics
GOP Presidential aspirant Harold Stassen
drew a step closer to the nomination with
his third successive surprise victory in Tues-
day's Pennsylvania preferential write-in-
vote primary. Following Stassen closely was
New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, while
other hopefuls trailed far behind.
On the same day, Stassen demonstrated
considerable strength among students at the
University as he polled 1,515 preferential
votes and 2,617 as most "likely to succeed"
in The Daily's presidential straw vote. Mich-
igan's Senator Vandenberg was second.
Henry Wallace seemed certain of a place
on the Michigan ballot in September. Peti-
tions with 39,520 names, 1,650 of them from
Washtenaw County, were filed Thursday.
Congress
The House Armed Services Committee had
finished work on the Draft Bill Friday and
anticipated a vote tomorrow.
Under the bill all men through 30 would
register but those 19 through 25 would be
liable for two years service.
A' differed slightly from the Senate bill
being studied, which includes UMT, al-
though providing that teen age trainees
would be trained in the regular armed
forces along with draftees. President Tu-
man accepted the compromise proposals as
"all he could get out of Congress."

Margarine
The long fight to end all federal taxes on
margarine was half won last week when the
House passed a bill to repeal oleo tax laws
that have been on the books for sixty-two
years. The measure now goes to the Senate.
Security
The case of Dr. Edward Condon blew wide
open again last week when the Department
of Commerce ignored a House resolution
calling for confidential loyalty data on Dr,
Condon. Within two days Rep. Busbey
(Rep.-Ill.) proposed that W. Averell Harri-
man, former Secretary of Commerce, be
brought before the House on contempt
charges.
LOCAL...
Civil Liberties
The Callahan Committee was making no
headway in its attempt to prosecute MSC
senior James Zarichny. It had called Zar-
ichny before the State Senate Wednesday,
expecting but not receiving an answer to its
question, "Are you a member of the Com-
munist Party?" From then on the Senate
was in confusion as defense attorney Donald
W. Loia of Detroit charged the entire Cal-
lahan Committee was illegal, and Sen. Stan-
ley Nowak came to the defense of the youth.
The trial was finally adjournd until May
20 by a Senate vote.

University
A record turnout of 5,756 students elected
twenty-three new members to the Student
Legislature., At the first meeting of the new
group it was decided that the Legislature
will choose the University delegation to the
National Student Association. An all-cam-
pus election to choose the delegates was
ruled out as being impossible this semester.

A fourth political organization officially
joined the ranks of those already active on
campus, when the Student Affairs Commit-
tee gave recognition to the, Student Demo-
crats for Douglas.
Tennis
A solution to the tennis "hot potato" was
reached with a decision to adopt a com-
promise plan which provides for optional
payment of a two-dollar semester fee or
a twenty-five cent charge each time.

A six-man committee, chairmaned by
Bill Miller, began work to make the model
UN held here last week a permanent ogani-
zation. on the campus.

Union
A meeting to amend the Union Constitu-
tion failed to achieve its goals owing to a
lack of sufficient members present to consti-
tute a quorum. Shelved, were proposals to
increase student representation on the Fi-
nance Committee, to changes in the pro-
cedure for selecting Union vice-presidents
and to givet tdtnt -majotity on the se-
lections committee which chooses senior
officers.

Marshallla Ptt
To the Editor:
TO CORRECT a misimpression
that the Marshall Plan is one
aspect of our altruistic policy, It
should like to quote the followingt
from the financial page of the1
New York Times, April 4, 1948.t
"A little less than a year ago1
a business readjustment or 're-
cession' was getting under way to
correct what happened when price1
controls were removed and the
Marshall Plan, corn crop failure
and the coal-wage settlement lead-
ing to steel-price increases set the1
business signal back to 'Inflation.'(
Both the ERP and the tax re-
duction were countd upon origin-j
ally to ease any tendency toward
a business downslide."
The money that is spenttin ER
is government money that i
drained directly into the pockets;
or various industries. On April
12, the Chinese Government for-r
mally protested to the State De-
partment that 50 per cent of the,
grain shipped to that country was
in the form of milled white flour.
If the wheat were shipped to
them, they could feed more people
and give the Chinese a more nu-'
tritive bread. However, the pow-
erful milling lobby managed to in-
sure that at least 25 per cent of
all grain shipped abroad will b
in the form of white milled flour.
Included in the bill for "hungry"
Europe are the following items:1
1 billion each of tobacco and cof-
fee, 114 million dollars of light
wines, and an undisclosed amountJ
of canned goods. Note that allI
these items are required to be
bought through commercial chan-
nels.
If the Marshall Plan is charity,
I wonder for whom.

To the Editor:
'HERE IS A GENERAL feeling,
shared by the city editor in
his Scratch Pad of April 28, that
the world situation has eased off
somewhat since March 17. This
attitude is the only thing flue-
tuating.
The American people created a
crisis at the time of the Presi-
dent's St. Patrick Day speech. We
Americans like to think of our-
selves vaguely and generally as a
progressive group, but when it
comes to details we still like to
look back fondly and proudly on
the "good old days." In short, we
make changes in our thought and
social patterns only slowly-ex-
cept "in time of crisis." Although
Truman said this was not a time
for hysteria, he told us it was
time for pattern -changing action.
The peopleareasoned backwards,
and decided that, since such ac-
tion habitually came only with
crises, there must be a crisis fac-
ing us.
What is actually facing the
world is a basic conflict which
every thinking person must re-
solve for himself, and which cul-
ture groups must resolve through
the collective action that is the
expression of their conscious and
unconscious will. Survival will, in
the final analysis, force all mem-
bers of human civilizations to far
greater cooperation with each
other. Our present conflict is
whether force or freely dissemi-
nated knowledge should be used

to produce this cooperation.
The side of force can win, and
now. They have a large enough
army, backed by stockpiled
supplies, a large submarine fleet,
an air force that can prevent
transportation of our atom bomb
to them and bring their biological
warfare bombs to us, and suffi-
cient fifth column personnel to
cause much destruction and con-
fusion.

A RECENT DAILY column says-
'"Anyone who has followed
newspapers . . . knows . . . only
the better papers . . . report to
any extent the speeches of Mr.
Wallace ...
Testing this thesis that Wallace
has been slighted, I checked up
on a week's output of Cleveland's
three newspapers. The week was
April 5-11. The stories noted were
those that reported only what the
presidential candidates had to say
on the issues. Truman was omit-
ted because anything that the
President of the United States
says automatically is news.
The results:
Plain Dealer: April 5, Wallace,
3 inches of copy (Page 18). April
6, Taft, 5 (P.4). April 7, Taft, 6
(P.2.). April 8, Wallace, 8 (P.4.).
April 9, Stassen-Dewey (combin-
ed), 11 (P.6.): Wallace, 4 (P.3.).
April 10, Stassen-Dewey, 11 (P.
17). April 11, Wallace, 8 (P.4).
Press: April 5, 6,_'7, nothing.
April 8, Stassen-Dewey, 2 (P.2);
Wallace, 2 (P.20), April 9, Stas-
sen-Dewey, 2 (P.18); Wallace, 3
(P.18). April 10, nothing. April
11, no edition (Sunday),
News: April 5, 6. 7, nothing.
April 8. Dewey, 3 (P.6) ; Taft, 3
(P.6). April 9, Taft-Dewey-Stas-
sen, 21 (P.2). April 10, nothing.
April 11, no edition (Sunday).
The tally for the week was Wal-
lace 33 inches, Dewey 23, Taft 21
and Stassen 20.
I chose the week April 5-11 for
the single reason that neither Taft
nor Stassen was then campaign.-
ing in Ohio for the May 4 prim-
ary. If either had been, Cleve-
land papers would have reported
them heavily as a matter. of
course.
I don't know if the week I chose
was typical or if Cleveland papers
are typical of those around thc
nation. But newspapers generally
shouldn't be castigated for omit-
ting Henry Wallace's views unless
it can be proved without doubt
that they are.
The column I'm criticising also
charges that newspaper "editors,
owners and publishers are afraid
to buck popular opinion."
Th~e classic refutation of this is
the years 1932-44, when the great
majority of the nation's news-
papers "bucked" a decidedly pop-
ular opinnion and editorially op-
posed the late Franklin Roosevelt
for President. .

Fifty-Eighth Year

COLOR AND VARIETY marked yester-
day afternoon's May Festival Concert,
highlighted by Mischa Elman's brilliant
violin virtuosity and the endearing charm
of 400 children, members of the Festival
Youth Chorus.
A briskly well-controlled performance
of Bach's Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in
C major opened the program. Alexander
Hilsberg again displayed cool competence,
conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra to
an exciting climax in the Fugue which
made the performance- of this selection
particularly memorable.
The Youth Chorus, under the direction of
Miss Marguerite Hood, completely won the
audience with a group of American folk-
songs. Their buoyant tone and flawless dic-
tion were consistently maintained, reaching
a delightful perfection in the Negro Spir-
itual, "Lord, I Want To Be a Christian," a
folk song from Mexico and the encore,
"Down in the Valley."
Meticulous technique, grace and fluidity,
of tone distinguished the performance of
Beethoven's Concerto in D major for Vio-
lin and Orchestra. Mr. Elman's strong
melodic sense was revealed to greatest
extent in the poignant lines of the Lar-
ghetto, although top quality musicianship
was evident in all three movements. Com-
plete accord between the orchestra and
the soloist contributed to the over-all
effect.
With the playing of four dances from'
Khachaturian's "Gayne" Ballet, the pro-
gram was brought to a gaily exhilarating
conclusion. The spirit of the strongly rhyth-
mical Saber Dance, Dance of the Rose Maid-
ens and Lezgenka was fully realized, while
the string passages of the Lullaby were
played with ravishing lyricism.
A tiny blond four-year-old, who had found
her way into the bleachers reserved for
Choral Union members, quite naturally ex-
pressed her delight in the Dances by wildly

IN LAST NIGHT'S MAY FESTIVAL
CONCERT, Leonard Warren, the soloist, did
a remarkable thing. He stepped, figuratively,
from the concert stage onto the opera stage,
where he obviously feels very much at home.
At first he gave us a concert stage rendi-
tion of the arias he had chosen to sing. But
as he finished the last of the four arias, and
won hearty applause from the audience for
the very fine singing he had done, he came
forward with a twinkle in his eye, and,
thanking them for their approval, announced
that he would sing the Toreador song.
Suddenly he was the toreador, heels
clicking and in colorful costume. The aud-
ience laughed with him and he was en-
joying himself tremendously.
Some of the more serious-minded might
have bewailed the fact that the concert had
degenerated into a "pops concert," but if it
did it was an excellent pops concert. It
seemed that the majority there enjoyedit,
judging from their spontaneous reactions.
The Philadelphia Orchestra was directed
throughout the concert by Eugene Ormandy,
and we feel he deserves high praise for his
work. The orchestra seemed to respond so
much better to his baton than it did to Hils-
berg's Friday night, that one realizes who it
is who is responsible for maintaining the
Philadelphia Orchestra's high reputation
since Stokowski left it.
The orchestra's keenness of sympathy
.with Wr. Ormandy, though obvious in the
overture, "Die Freischutz" by Weber,
brought forth its best fruits in the closing
work, Sibelius' second sympathy in D.
It is an important moment in the life of an
orchestral performer when he learns how
to be an impersonal entity in the orchestra-
merely a voice, an organ stop. When an en-
tire orchestra is made up of persons who
have learned that lesson, as is the case with
