AndN owTo Work
DESPITE THE fact that we still don't
know who he is, with the final r'esults,
the hat eating and the electoral college vote
still to come, one thing is sure:
The newly elected President, his
jubilant celebrating over, will enter office
in January faced with one of the longest
lists of urgent problems in our history.
Throughout the singularly unexciting
campaign,.it became at least vaguely appar-
ent to voters, that more than ever, the
left-over war problems were pressing. And
now that the more-or-less empty and bland
promises and opinions have served their
purpose, it should be reasonably expected
that some down to earth work will be done.
U.S. relations with the rest of the world,
and particularly with Russia will perhaps
pose the biggest headaches. The failure
to follow a clear, efficient policy in the
German Occupation, has brought Russo-
American relations to their lowest ebb,
helped by the "stop-the-Reds" instead of
"help-the-liberals" attitude toward the so-
called "potential" satellites.
The avoidance of either the too much dis-
eussed 30-day atomic war or another full
fledged world war rests squarely with the
present administration. Only the most skill-
ful and efficient administration of the Mar-

shall Plan, and the most tactful diplomacy
u ie nextiour years can allow us to say
truthfully that we did our part.
Nor will the cries of "Reds in high
places" be lessened because the election
is over. The headlines may not be so
glaring, but the administration will have
no easy fight to keep the United States
from the totalitarian purge system.
On the domestic scene, of course, high
prices provide the most immediate problem
and cry for the quickest action. Talk has
been big and promises numerous in the
campaign, but the voters rightly expect deci-
sive and effective action.
We've heard plenty of talk about housing
too and promises from all sides for "federal
aid" to alleviate the situation. But the ad-
ministration won't be able to move forward
on low-cost housing by lifting rent-controls,
iiiranteeing rental yields and giving tax
benefits to landlords. If the government is
nou p epared to stand up against the big real
estate interests, the dreams of adequate
housing and slum. clearance will remain in
their present, discouragingly nebulous state.
Similarly, no progress can be made in
st bilizing labor-management relations
without a concrete attempt to equalize
"advantages." The Taft-Hartley Act was
a far cry from any sort of settlement, and
the labor picture will look even bleaker
if things are allowed "just to ride."
Whatever the feelings behind the sten-
torian cries for unity voiced in the past
few weeks, it should be fairly evident that
these problems demand at least a united
determination to find the best solution.
Worth a Chance
UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS have provided
an office where all seniors, graduates
and staff members may register to get per-
manent jobs, but it seems to be forgotten.
Of the 6,000 seniors scheduled to grad-
uate in February, June and August only
some 1,000 students have filed application
blanks with the University Bureau of
Appointments and Occupational Informa-
tion. Apparently the other 5,000 students
do not realize the benefits that may be
obtained from this Bureau's service.
The Bureau has a dual purpose in its
campus life. It counsels students in choosing
a specialized field. And it tries to place every
applicant in a suitable job.
Each year hundreds of employers write for
recommendations of students or come to the
campus for personnel interviews. Staff mem-
bers find students who fit the employers
qualifications, send recommendations of
them and make appointments with the stu-
dents for interviews.
Bureau members stress that students
do not realize the importance of these
filed recommendations. Last year alone
16,000 sets of credentials were sent out to
The student plays a small part in actually
finding a job, if he uses the Bureau's serv-
ices. After he has filled out the application,
which includes getting recommendations
from three professors and a picture of him-
self he may sit back while the Bureau goes
Members duplicate the recommendations
and file them. They arrange for interviews
at the University and hand out countless
introductory letters to students who go job
seeking on their own. They keep a file
of every student registered which enables
them to find better jobs for persons who
have become experienced. Students who
have leads for jobs through their family
or.friends may request the Bureau to send
their credentials to the prospective em-
,By spending a small amount of time in
registering now, today's senior may find his
life's work. It's worth the chance.
STUDENT OPINION like national opinion,
although easily aroused, taks a long time
to be channeled into effective action.
But at last, in the case of the political
speakers' ban, student groups are organizing
themselves to present a united front to a
meeting of the Regents. They have learned
through futile efforts that at least on one
point, Tom Dewey is right: We've got t
have unity to effect our ends.
So far, the Inter-Racial Association,
Hillel, AVC, UWF, Young Democrats, Wal-
lace Progressives, and NSA have joined
in sponsoring a drive to get a majority
of the students signed in f.avor of lifting
the ban. AIM, SRA, Sigma Delta Tau have
unofficially endorsed the plan and are
expected to sign as soon as their organiza-
tions meet. It is to be hoped that IFC,
Panhell, and Assembly, as well as the Stu-
dent Legislature, will approve of the peti-
There will be some who argue that it is
too late-that the national election is over
and the Regents may be considered as hav-
ing won their point. In this light, they are
partially right. Students were not allowed
to hear different viewpoints on the campaign
and were forced to seek their information
in other and sometimes rather questionable
sources. Some no doubt became converted
to one idea or philosophy by indoctrination,
without being given the chance to hear a
refutation of that point of view. If this be
education, then we question its value.
But the battle is not over with the skir-
mish. There are other issues, other cam-
paigns. The ban also forbids students gath-
ering to discuss political subjects-forbids
"spontaneous" gatherings except, under our
newest interpretations, between the hours
of noon and four p.m. How can anyone be
spontaneous between noon and four p.m.?
And even this idea on our part is avoid-
ing the fact that there will be elections
in 1950, 1952, and we hope for as long as
the United States Government exists. Are
Michigan students to be forever prevented
from expressing themselves in these cam-
This now is to be the issue on which these
groups can base their demand for the right
to hear and be heard. It is a part of our
academic freedoms which General Eisen-
hower wholeheartedly endorsed in his speech
at the time 'of his installation as President
of Columbia. We have the right to learn
as individuals, we should certainly have that
right as students. On how we present our
arguments to the Board of Regents, on the
unity which backs that argument will be
based our hopes for a sound policy to govern
the University's attitude towards academic
freedom in years to come.
WTHEN DETROIT'S televisJon :taion
WWJ-TV generously donated Iwo tele-
vision receivers to the University, it intended
that they should provide education and en-
tertainment for all students, and that no
special group should use either receiver
for its private profit. With the set located
in the League's Grand Rapids room, the
only set provided for public use, this objec-
tive is being disregarded.
The Grand Rapids room is locked on
Friday and Saturday evenings to all except
those who have paid to enter Campus
Casbah. Anyone who wants only to use
the television set must pay $1.25 to enter
the dance, though he doesn't want to
dance, or he can't gain access to the set.
W ask that Campus Casbah's unfair ex-
ploitation of the television receiver be
stopped immediately by University author-
ities. If the Casbai management is afraid
people will enter t he dcaynce throfig the
Grand Rapids room with iout paying admis-
sion, let it station a 'ard at the room's
Casbah entrance, as it does on the stairs
leading to the ballroom.
The television set does niot. belong to
Campus Casbah. It belongs to the entire
student body, which has a right to enjoy
it-even on Friday and Saturday nights.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
MATTER OF FACT:
By JOSEPH AND STEWART ALSOP
WASHINGTON-Everyone is glad that the
campaign is over, mainly because the
campaign has been a bore. It is strange that
it should have been a bore-this contest in a
time of crisis for the most powerful office
in the world. Yet it has been a bore. It is im-
portant to try to understand why.
One reason is that Thomas E. Dewey,
has waged a notably unexciting campaign.
In part this has been by design. But in
part it has resulted from the quality of
the man himself.
A speech by Dewey was a curious experi-
ence to the listener. His speeches have been,
on the whole, fine speeches, admirably
written. Moreover, Dewey's timing, the rise
and fall of his voice, his gestures, are almost
perfect. To hear such a man in such times
as these should be a moving experience. Yet
it is not. There is something oddly disap-
pointing about the experience, something
mechanical, over-rehearsed, a trifle chilling.
This suggests Dewey's gravest weakness,
weakness which is also a fact of very
great political importance. For he still
lacks the quality (which such men as
Franklin Roosevelt, Wendell Willkie and
Al Smith so notably had) which fires the
imagination and captures the personal loy-
alty of masses of the voters. A very high
proportion of Dewey votes will really be
If Dewey is to become the kind of Pres-
ident he wants to be, this must be changed.
In the troubled years which lie ahead, the
job of the Presidency will not be confined
to oiling the creaking wheels of government,
important as this task may be.
The next President will have to make de-
cisions-such as the rearmament of Western
europe-which will be immensely unpopular
with a great many immensely important
people, including a large proportion of the
Republican leadership. And he will have to
make these decisions stick, in the face of
bitter opposition in Congress and out.
To do this more will be needed than
competence, more than the genius for po-
litical organization which Dewey and his
staff have consistently displayed. It will
achieve some human and intangible quality
which, despite his manifest virtues, he still
lacks. Yet one thing is true. Dewey has
grown in personal stature in recent years
as much as any man in public life. And
the Presidency forces growth on a man, as
surely as growth is forced on plants in a
The tragedy of Truman is simply that,
despite the best of intentions, his capacity
for growth is sharply limited, and the
voters have sensed as much. This too has
contributed to the tedium of this dull
campaign, for it has all but completely
robbed Truman of a chance of reelection,
and has thus destroyed the suspense of
Yet, though the division between Right
and Left is more clearly marked than ever
before, there is still no issue which deeply
divides the American people. There is almost
total agreement on foreign policy, as the
Wallace fiasco demonstrates. And at home,
in these booming times, there is no real
bitterness, Taft-Hartley or no Taft-Hartley.
Perhaps that, more than anything else,
accounts for the dullness of the campaign.
And it is something for which the price
of a little boredom may thankfully be paid.

We dislike to be alarmists in these jittery
times, but we feel it our duty to warn that
another sinister threat to the established or-
der is developing. It is an organized attempt
to regiment the free citizens of this republic
into eating cranberries with chicken. So
zealous have become these radicals, who call
themselves the Federation of Cranberry and
Chicken Fanciers, that they are flooding the
country with propaganda, and are no doubt
this moment boring from within in high
The exponents of this subversive proposal
insist, like all revolutionaries, that they are
actuated only by a humanitarian motive,
that of bringing more variety to the Ameri-
can table. The high cost of meat, they say,,
-is causing people to eat more chicken. There-
fore, to keep the chicken diet from becoming
monotonous, cranberries should be added.
