Holy Land Peace?"

THE MEN who killed Count Folke Berna-
dotte Friday may have provided the
only possible means of bringing peace to
the Holy Land.
If the Swedish Count had not fallen
before the guns of the Irgun, the UN
might never have risen from the stupor
which envelopes it and, what is more im-
portant, the government of Israel might
never have had the chance to do a very
Important job of house cleaning. .......
Yesterday's destruction of the Irgun has
made possible the peace that Bernadotte
wanted, and which could never have been
achieved while the Irgun was in existence.
The Irgun never reconciled itself to any-
thing less than the whole of old Pales-
tine, including Transjordan. It had existed
from 1939 as an aggressive movement, advor
cating the use of force on any and every
occasion. It was the Irgun that blew up the
King David Hotel in Jerusalem two years
ago and made Palestine intolerable for the
British. The Jewish agency and the Ha-
ganah at first deplored such violence but
later, seeing that the British couldn't take
it, they. joined in, and took over as the
provisional army and government when in-
dependence was proclaimed.
Once the state of Israel was a fact, the
leaders in the government, conscious of
their newly won freedom and their re-
sponsibilities, tried to cooperate with the
UN, within the limits of Arab action.
The UN truce, never a very stable affair

was broken repeatedly but blame was not
with the Jewish state. The Irgun attempted
to flaunt the truce by landing a load of
munitions within sight of Count Berna-
dotte's headquarters, but they were stopped
by the Israeli army.
The policy of the Israeli government
has been to content itself with that part
of Palestine which the UN had, allotted
to it and try to build up the country in-
ternally rather than engage in more ag-
gressive warfare than it deems feasible.
The Irgun would have none of that, and
Count Bernadotte was caught between the
two factions within Israel.
With the necessity of atoning for the
murder of the UN representative, the gov-
ernment has purged the revolutionary
elements from the country and can now
proceed with the policy which it has out-
lined-cooperation with the UN as long as
its rights are respected.
Bernadotte's proposals backed up by the
U.S. include an extension of the partition
zone-an enlarging of the Jewish state.
Now, the Jewish state, with or without UN
action, can proceed along more conventional
lines to accomplish at least part of what
the Irgun stood for. The Irgun, nurtured
on violence, was never able to reconcile it-
self to the intricacies of legalistic procedure,
even when restraints were imposed by its-
own government.
Bernadotte's death and the power of a
united Jewish army has provided the means
of bringing at least a semblance of peace
to the Holy Land.
Last spring we suggested that the UN,
lacking any force of its own, commission
the government of Israel to carry out the
partition. Events of the summer, and of
the last few days, make this proposal even
more appropriate today than it was then.

The Liberal Question

ALTHOUGH Olivet College president Au-
brey L. Ashby emphatically declared that
Prof. T. Barton Akeley and his wife were
fired "because they had fulfilled their use-
fulness to the College-PERIOD and that's
all there is to it!" the facts do not bear up
his contention.
Long before the row began, the Akeleys
were signed to another year's contract to
teach. The situation was completely nor-
mal. Then, in July, the college's Board
of Trustee's suddenly made their decision
as to the future "usefulness" of the pro-
fessor and his wife. Their only "out" was
to offer them the choice of immediate re-
signation or a chance to take a Sabbati-
cal leave for the coming year and then re-
sign.
Sabbatical leaves for both the Akeleys will
cost the College several thousand dollars -
money that is badly needed by the school,
which maintains itself solely on donations
and tuition payments.
Apparently justified is the charge that
Olivet officials suddenly became panicky

about "liberals" running around loose and
canned the Akeleys without thinking about
the direct consequences. With no explana-
tion given as to exactly how the Akeleys had
"fulfilled their usefulness," a bystander is
free to accept any motive that appears like-
ly.
The regular fall announcement, sent out
to students in June, listed. the Akeleys as
faculty members. However, students hav-
ing already put up $75 each in pre-semes-
ter contributions, found that the college is
not as it was presented. The Akeleys, long
liked on campus, are gone.
Protestations from students and faculty
members have brought only angry denuncia-
tions and an "open meeting" at which only
the administration, through President Ash-
by, was allowed to present its views on the
crisis. Threats against students who refused
to register even included notification of their
parents of. their reprehensible conduct!
Today two-thirds of Olivet's students will
be in classes studying. One third will re-
main outside, picketing and learning.
-Craig H. Wilson.

Wanderers?
POLITICS, at least in so far as the Pro-
gressive Party is concerned, has no de-
grees of shading. It is still a matter of, "You
are either for me or against me. There is
no position between the poles."
In principle, it is a fine sentiment,
exhibiting an utter unwillingness to be
tricked by pleasing words. But in 1948, it
is to foster reaction. Whatever the inten-
tions may be, the result is always the
same. It means, the return to Congress of
Minnesota's Sen. Joseph Ball and Mich-
igan's Rep. Earl Michener.
* * *
PROGRESSIVES, of, course, can cite the
instance of the five Progressive Con-
gressional candidates who withdrew from
the race in Pennsylvania in order not to
split the liberal vote.. They may point to
their offer of support to Helen Gahagan
Douglas in California. At the 'same time,
however, their opponents, with at least equal
conviction, can question the candidacy of
Elmer Benson against Mayor Humphrey in
the latter's battle with Ball. Equally puzzling
was the Progressive opposition to Paul Doug-
las in the Illinois Senatorial race against
C. Wayland Brooks.
The matter has finally come home since
Jack Geist, University student, has entered
into the Slosson-Michener tussle, by an-
nouncing his candidacy on the Progressive
ticket
Regardless of the Progressives' protesta-
tions, the simple fact is that Messrs. Hum-
phrey, Douglas and Slosson have been
consistently liberal. Using Prof. Slosson as
an example, a case for his liberalism can
be established by recalling his active role
in the Michigan Committee for Academic
Freedom, his opposition to the Mundt Bill
and his position as faculty sponsor of the
United World Federalists.
*a *
CLEARLY THERE is confusion within the
Progressive Party, a conjecture sub-
stantiated by yesterday's news reports in
which Wallace was said to have disagreed
with his campaign manager C. B. Baldwin,
when Baldwin said his party was willing
to support such Democrats as Chester
Bowles, candidate for governor of Connecti-
cut.
Somewhere, it does not figure, unless
one of the following is true; 1. The Pro-
gressives have a patent on liberalism; 2.
Have no nationally accepted definition of
liberalism; or 3. Are unable to agree on
national policy.
All of which sugggests that the Messiah
to lead the liberals from the wilderness may
be hard to find in the Progressive Party,
and we may yet wander forty years in the
desert.

Graduate students who plan to en-

must be enrolled this semester in a
writing course giving graduate credit

By SAMUEL GRAFTON ,
Summer is ending, there is the feeling of
inexpressible new things in the air; and Mr.
Dewey stands on a platform at Des Moines
and offers us national unity. Unity is a fine
wprd to use in early fall; it has a tang like
woodsmoke, and it spices the night. Of
course Mr. Dewey seems to be saying that
if we want unity we had better elect him,
which is a trifle odd, because real unity
shouldn't even appear to bargain; it should
be offered unconditionally, like a mother's
smile, or a lover's sigh.
But let us not question too closely; it
is early fall, a time of sweeping thoughts.
Old thoughts, perhaps, and soft thoughts,
like thoughts of wood and food in the
cellar; not like the hot young thoughts
of spring, when the silly new leaves break
out. The young man from Albany stands
on a platform, and offers us room around
a Republican hearth.
He will even, he says dreamily, smelling
the harvest promise, work for lower prices,
and more housing. He will do this by work-
ing in unity with Congress; he will know
how. Of course it has been, and perhaps
will be again, a Congress which does not
care much about reducing prices, or putting
up more houses, and it is hard to see how
you can get it to do precisely what it does
not want to do by working in amiable unity
with it.
But those are summer thoughts, hot side-
walk thoughts; and one does not really care
to impose them upon the attention of the
young man gazing into the September night,
and dreaming his autumn dream. He is en-
titled to write his poem; everyone is.
And on the capitol lawn in Denver, Mr.
Truman, another man, responds in his own
way to an election autumn, and the urgency
of a changing year. Mr. Truman says that
if you want to beat Wall Street, you'd bet-
'ter elect him, because that is what he wants
to do. Of course I doubt that Mr. Truman
can beat Wall Street; I don't think he could
John Street, or Maiden Lane, if you come
right down to it. But Mr. Truman has his
rnm qoiihmn drpnm - hP -,Pn a short- harn

"No Political Issues Any More. This Is More Efficient"

party votes. Mr. Truman's dream of strug-
gle is, in its own way, almost as poetical
as Mr. Dewey's dream of unity on behalf
of liberal goals. Suddenly one has a feel-
ing that both men are still laboring in the
shadow of Roosevelt, and are investing the
question of personal victory or defeat with
a kind of decisiveness as which is not,
in point of fact, really involved, however
much it may have been in the time of a
great president, and of great public moods.
One has a feeling that the public, too, has
oversimplified its problem, and does not rea-
lize what a complicated and difficult serial
story will have to be lived through, regard-
less of who wins the election, before it can
have such simple boons as lower prices and
more housing. The feeling that the presi-
dential election, however important, will, of
itself, solve all our problems might almost
be given a name, and called "The Presi-
dential Illusion." It is a feeling all candi-
dates have, of necessity, but which the pub-
lic has also come to share to a degree that
prevents it from paying enough attention to
such other aspects of the election as the
nature of the next Congress.
It is perhaps time for the public to dream
its own autumn dream, it could be a dream
of a Congress which can give it what it
needs; a dream, in short, of refusing to lose
in November, regardless of who wins. To
help in this enterprise, I will try to touch
off some of the more important Congres-
sional races in this space during the coming
weeks.

Letters to the Editor

In Re Olivet
To the Editor:
THE magnificent fight which the
students at Olivet College are
waging against the open; flagrant
violation of academic freedom at
that school, is worthy of the best
traditions of American student
movement.
One-third of the student body
refuses to register, pickets the ad-
ministration for the reinstatement
of two faculty members who have
been fired for their political views,
and are threatened. with expul-
sion! Such mass activity shows a
real awakening of the student
movement to the growing number
of incidents which infringe upon
the basic civil liberties of the peo=
ple.
The insulation which many stu-
dents feel against such threats as
the Mundt Bill, the arrest of mi-
nority political leaders, the Un-
American Committee, and even
the persecution of a relatively
small number of their fellow stu-
dents, is proven to be false secur-
ity by this ouster at Olivet. For,
when liberal-minded teachers are
thrown out, then reaction has
claimed a complete monopoly over
the minds of the youth; then the
"loyalty" oaths, dismissals with-
out hearings, autocratic passing
of judgment without defense or
jury, and witch-hunts after non-
conformists, have been imposed
upon the whole student body.
This will not be the last of such

reserved for faculty and staff person-
nel of the rank of instructor or above
and disabled students who have re-
ceived Parking Permits from the of-
fice of the Secretary of the University.
Persons parking in these lots illegally
or improperly are notified by means of
a sticker which is placed on the
windshield. Beginning Oct. 1, fines
will be imposed for using these re-
stricted areas without proper permis-
sion. First offenses will bring a fine of
$1.00, second offenses $2.00 and third
offenses $3.00 along with possible loss
of driving privileges.
Students may park in the following
areas at any time as long as their cars
are parked properly and do not block
any entrance or the path of another
parked car. Improper parking in these
areas which are unrestricted will result
in the same penalties as those listed
above.

incidents. Let it be resolved that
this will not be last of such mili-
tant protests.
-Marvin H. Gladstone.
* * *
To the Editor:
IN VIEW of the protests aroused
in Michigan colleges and Uni-
versities by Olivet's dismissal of
Professor Akeley, it would seem
useful to know these things: (1)
Was Prof. Akeley dismissed be-
cause his attitudes and beliefs are
to the left of those held by the
trustees, as may have beer} in-
dicated by his activities and re-
marks outside the classroom? or
(2) Was he dsmissed because
while inslecture hallhe has been
expressing opinions upon contro-
versial subjects which do not fall
within the province of the subject
he is teaching and in which he has
been trained?
Unless the answers to these
questions are known, how can one
justifiably support either the Ak-
eleys or Olivet's Board of Trus-
tees? Certainly without knowing
them, Miss Friedman writing on
this page cannot state that Olivet
students are "fighting our battle"
without implying somethingquite
different from what I hope she
intends.
It is one thing for a teacher of
political science to be dismissed
because he chooses to make off-
campus speechesadvocating rad-
ical economic change; it is quite
another when the same teacher
of political science is dismissed be-
cause within his classroom he ad-
vocates radical economic change.
Academic freedom should not be
confused with the civil freedom of
speech. Academic freedom ought
to give a man the right to teach
whatever is true within the sub-
ject field in which he is qual-
ified to teach regardless of how
much the interests of influential
men may hurt; academic freedom
ought not to allow him to use his
classroom as a place to present
various prejudices he may have
on matters not within the area
of the subject taught.
-Franz Theodore Stone.
To the Editor:
THE BULLETINS and general
catalogues of Olivet College
for several years have enticed the
prospective students with a beau-
tifully written statement of the
purpose of the college, of which
these words are a part:
"To build himself in body and
mind, to learn in an atmosphere
