Vulnerable Ones

I -- - - - - - -- -

WHEN ADAM STRICKER, General Mo-
tors official, charged before Congress
that the University's workers' education
service economics course was indoctrinating
students with Marxism, he set off a charge
which threatens to seriously injure an in-
creasingly important project.
Awaiting review of the charges by the
Board of Regents, the classes for this
Fall have been discontinued. The Board
has postponed final action until its Oc-
tober meeting. Mr. Stricker's accusations,
based apparently on only superficial ex-
amination of the program, and denied by
President Ruthven, have nevertheless laid
the groundwork for the entrance of the
"let them be ignorant and they won't
know what they're missing" crowd.
The dangers of ignorance, particularly
ignorance of doctrines and ideologies foreign
to our own, are plain. Firm knowledge is the
best defense against empty soap box oratory
and half truths.
As President Ruthven said last spring:
"Here at the University, we feel that we
would not be doing our duty if we failed
to tell them (students) what Marxism and
Communism really mean."
THE CASE of the worker is of particular
import. It is to the worker that dicta-
tors, revolutionists, fascists or Communists,
advocates of any basic changes in the eco-
nomic and socio-political structure come
first with promises of betterment. Even with,
or perhaps because of, his wealth of prac-
tical experience in the so-called free enter-
prise society, the worker, without theoretical

knowledge is all the 'more vulnerable to
apparently Utopian promises.
If means to better his position are denied
him under one system, he will logically
turn to another. If the means under one
system are there, but he is either ignorant
of their existence or of their use, he will
again snap up the ideals of an alternative.
In its short, but active history, the coun-
try-wide workers' education program has
attempted to provide workers with the tools
he needs to achieve his objectives through
the means provided in our economic society.
Its success is heralded b ylabor leaders and
by employers; by University professors and
by political leaders in both major parties.
SENATOR IRVING M. IVES, Republican
from New York, and former dean of the
newly established Cornell School of Indus-
trial Relations has voiced strong support of
workers' education before the Senate. Sen-
ator Elbert D. Thomas, Democrat from Utah~
and Senators George D. Aiken and Wayne
Morse, Republicans from Vermont and Ore-
gon, respectively, have also taken strong, fa-
vorable stands.
Senator Vandenberg has called the pro-
gram a "constructive undertaking" and ex-
pressed great interest in its success. All these
have given support to the Senate bill to grant
federal funds to such a program.
The suspension of the University of
Michigan sponsored classes was received
with alarm by leaders in the workers ed-
ucation field, as was revealed Sunday on
a radio discussion of the problem. The
University has long been a'-leader in the
workers' education field, and the sus-
pension of its classes withholds knowl-
edge from an important segment of
American labor.
The indoctrination charges against the
courses are transparently weak. The value
of the courses is inestimable.

I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
A bstracionist
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
EVERY ELECTION campaign becomes, at
least in some part, a game with words,
and one has the feeling that we are hitting,
inato that stage now. I think, especially, of
Mr. Dewey's use of the word "unity," which
is a good word, a fine word, and a hard word
to raise any objections against, or to sub-
ject to realistic analysis, because if you do.
people are likely to conclude you are the
sort of man who steps on the tails of little
cats and is curt with children.
Yet one has the feeling that Mr. Dewey
uses the word only alter having drained
it of most of its content. What sort of
unity does Mr. Dewey have in mind? There
is a difference between unity in behalf
of government action to achieve lower
prices, more hydroelectric power and more
hot school lunches, and unity against
these objectives. Mr. Dewey does not really
specify what sort of unity he wants; he
appears to desire a sort of plain, unflav-
ored kind of unity;,just unity unity.
In other words, Mr. Dewey has taken the
word "unity," emptied it of meaning, dry-
cleaned it, baked it in a kiln at 2,000 degrees
for four hours, and then, with a triumphant
air, has presented the resultant dry husk
for our improvement and delight.
IN A DIFFICULT and complicated time the
predilection for this kind of abstraction
increases, of course. One senses it again in
Mr. Dewey's declaration that it is important
there be no strife between the President and
Congress. Here, too, Mr. Dewey prloves him-
self to be a master of abstract art, fit to
rank, in his own way, with Braque and Pi-
casso.
IHaving noticed that in a happy, pros-
perous and successful time there is, us-
ually, no strife between the President and
Congress, Mr. Dewey proposes that there
be no strife between the President and
Congress in order to insure a happy, pros-
perous and, successful time. Here again,
Mr. Dewey has abstracted one element
from the total picture, divorced it of its
human context, refined it, rarefied it,
purified it, and has made it stand for
the whole thing.
I will not go into the matter of Mr.
Dewey's fondness for talking about "effici-
ency" in government without discussing such
question as to whether an efficient gov-
ernment is not, after all, one which, say,
efficiently improves the health of all the
people by vastly broadening our social in-
surance plans; it is pure efficiency Mr.
Dewey speaks of. As a matter of fact, I find
it a little hard to stay up in these high
altitudes, where, after a time, it becomes
difficult to breathe the thinned atmosphere;
I find I want to climb down to where people
perspire, perhaps, but where there is a reas-
suring reality in human sounds and sights,
and aspirations and dilemmas, too.

Letters to the Editor

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

Colossal Campwatgn

THE CAMPUS CHAPTER of AVC is now
completing the biggest and best mem-
bership campaign in local history.
Besides that, it has revitalized its present
membership and assured itself of a heavy
attendance at all meetings for the next 15
months.
Voluntarily or involuntarily, it set it-
self up as an example of what can happen
under a democratic system when the
majority of individual members forget,
or are just too lazy, to exercise their
right to vote and speak their views.
Glimme--?
A FAINT GLIMMER of hope has begun
to pierce the-blanket of gloom surround-
ing Democratic campaign headquarters.
No reason for this optimism can be found
in any presidential poll, for they are unani-
mous in indicating that President Truman,
as of today, is far out of the running.
But seasoned Democratic party chiefs
believe -now hold onto your hats-that
there is a good chance for Thomas E.
Dewey to begin his term in the White
house with a Democratic majority in the
Senate!
This seemingly wild hope assumes greater
reality when the forthcoming senatorial
races are carefully considered.
Democratic and Republican strategists
agree that, in 13 races for the Senate, the
outcomes of the 1948 elections are very much
in doubt. Ten of these Senate seats ,are
held by Republicans, while only three are
now in Democratic possession.
The important fact to consider is that
a total change of only four seats from the
Republican to the Democratic fold will in-
sure a Democratic Senate!
David Lawrence, one of the more openly
Republican columnists, recently expressed
his concern over the Democratic resurg-
ence among the "grass root" element in
the Western and some of the midwestern
states. Significantly enough, many of the
states where the Democratic swing has
been noticed are those in which Repub-
lican Senators are up for re-election.
The column by Joseph Alsop on this page
presents more evidence to support the con-
tention of the Democratic leaders by de-
scribing the trend in Minnesota and Iowa.
Stay up late on election night. You may
be around to witness a political rarity.
--Leon Jaroff.

The charges of AVC chairman, Dave Bab-
son, that the recent 'hot' meeting of the
group was Communst-packed were appar-
ently not true. But where there is smoke,
there usually is some fire.
AVC was ripe for packing. Scores of mem-
bers failed to attend regularly. "Now I wasn't
at that particular meeting myself, but . ..
That was typical of the comments of many
members who found Babson's charges of
intense interest.
In the past, the policy of AVC has
shifted back and forth several times as
one group outvoted another by slight
margins. You might say that AVC was
circumstantially packed. Eventually the
shift went too far for chairman Babson
and there was an explosion.
There will be fewer swings of the pen-
dulum in AVC from now on. The members
are or should be aware of the necessity of
supporting their organizations.
And the little "man-in-the-street" saw
what happened when an automatic, push-
button democracy was substituted for a
working democracy.
-Craig I. Wilson.
MATTER OF FACT:
Wall II Wri ttIng
By JOSEPH ALSOP
ST. PAUL, MINN.-If the states of Iowa
and Minnesota are at all indicative, the
Republican party had better watch its step.
There is little reason here to doubt that
Governor Thomas E. Dewey will defeat Pres-
ident Harry S. Truman. But in this mid-
western area, which is the very heart of Re-
publican strength in the country, one can
already see the handwriting on the wall. The
handwriting announces the eventual doom
of the peculiar brand of Republicanism
peddled by the Eightieth Congress.
Here in Minnesota, the polls actually
show Truman ahead of Dewey by a mod-
est margin, while the Democratic sena-
torial nominee, Mayor Hubert Humphrey
of Minneapolis, leads Senator Joseph Ball
by a thumping 49 to 39. Partly, these
results may be explained by the state's
obstinate loyalty to Franklin Roosevelt in
1944, when the Midwest as a whole,
plumped for the Republicans. But in the
main, the only possible inference is that
in Minnesota it is Truman who is riding
on Humphrey's coat-tails.
Under the circumstances, Ball is a poor
match for Humphrey. The real struggle is
for the dominant farm vote, since the labor
groups hate Ball like poison anyway. The
farmers do not like labor's attachment to
Humphrey. But the farmers get hot under
the collar when Humphrey points out, for
example, that Ball went along with the Re-
publican economizers in slashing the rural
electrification program. Rural electrifica-
tion and the New Deal farm programs are
what held Minnesota for Roosevelt in 1944.
At the request of Minnesota national
committeeman Roy Dunn, Dewey is com-
ing to Minnesota to announce his ardent
admiration for everything the New Deal
did for the farmers, with special emphasis
on R.E.A. Most competent judges here be-
lieve that Dewey will end by carrying the
state.

Current Movies

1'' 'te
At the Michigan ...
KEY LARGO, with Lauren Bacall and
Humphrey Bogart.
K EY LARGO is about as good a movie as
interesting story, fine acting and able
direction can turn out. Maxwell Anderson's
tale of a few hours of terror during a Flor-
ida hurricane has been superbly cast, with
Edward G. Robinson doing one of the best
jobs of his career as Johnny Rocco, the
racket king whose gun and wiles can manip-
ulate nearly everything but the elements.
The picture depicts only the final after-
noon of the Rocco gang's stay, but against
the limited setting of the storm bound hotel
each character stands out in clear focus
to enact a story that is fast moving, sus-
penseful, and nicely spiced with moments
of terror. Lauren and Humphrey have a
minimum of lines for all their star billing,
and fortunately none of the stirring speeches
and future appointments in remote cafes
that used to characterize their pictures. The
unsavory tough guys that surround Rocco
are each a masterpiece of individuality, and
Claire Trevor will be remembered as a real
actress if she never does another picture.
As the once famous songstress protege of
Rocco, now sunk to alcoholism, she takes
every scene she is in, and it is her final
russe that shapes the end of this most in-
teresting movie.
-Gloria Hunter.

"MELODY TIME," a Walt Disney musical
comedy.
THIS SHORT LITTLE feature would be
better if it were shorter.
In other words, it definitely has its mo-
ments, but seems to be encumbered with
much that is more in the line of torture than
entertainment.
A sort of half-baked pop "Fantasia,"
the thing is a series of eight semi-sur-
realistic sequences-three of which are
vaguely reminiscent of the Disney of yore.
A quick session in the cutting room could
make exceptionally fine short subjects out

Anti-Barnaby
To the Editor:
HAVE SOMETHING to say
which is indeed of great import
to the students of this University.
For the past two years I have read
The Daily assiduously. At this
time, as one who is sincerely inter-
ested in the problems of good
journalism, I feel it is incumbent
upon me to request a change.
I refer, of course, to that piece
of literary tripe which appears on
the editorial page and masque-
rades as a comic strip. I wish to
go on record as unequivocally
stating that this miscarriage of
humor is a hoax. It is a fraud per-
petrated upon the naive comic-
lovers of this community by a
crowd of pseudo-intellectuals who
think Barnaby is real literature.
This bunch of frustrated literati
gambols about the campus glee-
fully shouting, "Did you see B.
today? Wasn't it just too, too gay
the way he criticized Truman's
speech? Did you get the meta-
physical significance of the sec-
ond box."
All I can get out of Barnaby is
that it is the tale of a Mongolian
idiot who has a cretin for a fa-
ther. The latter after being indi-
rectly connected with the title
character for the past four or five
years, has never once lifted him-
self from his armchair to scientifi-
cally investigate the possible ex-
istence of his offspring's Fairy
Godfather. Now I freely admit
that such a plot might serve as
the basis of a mildly amusing
story. But to drag this inanity
out over a period of years is sheer
torture.
In accord with the above, I move
that a movement get under way;
that petitions be placed on the
diag; that pickets block the Stu-
dent Publications Building; all
with the avowed purpose of forc-
ing Barnaby out and bringing in
that greatest of all comics, Li'l
Abner.
-Howard (Howie) Planeder
(EDITORS NOTE: According to
rules appied by syndicates which
handle comic strip services, The
Daily may not publish any strip
which appears in a Detroit news-
paper.

Pro-Taylor
To the Edito
LAST WEEK I heard Sen. Glen
Taylor speak. The following
day I read a commentary on the
address printed on this page. I
should like to congratulate the
authors on their nonchalance in
brushing aside the salient facts.
They do become annoying after a
while, like nails sticking through
the heel of a shoe. However, a
little pink talc does a good job
of soothing.
I am curious, though, to know
why such a vague treatment was
given to so factual a talk. Why
was theresno mention of Taylor's
references? An article from the
N.Y. Times stated that Europe was
feeling the effects of over-produc-
tion and that businessmen were
worried about the financial crisis
in their countries. The Times, in-
cidentally, received a large grant
under the Marshall Plan (ECA),
therefore it is definitely not acting
in selfish interest when it prints
a condemnation of this plan in its
columns. Yet it allowed this ar-
ticle to be placed in print. In all

fairness to the Times, I should
add that the piece was withdrawn
after the first edition. Evidently
the editors realized the error of
their ways.
Our industrialists are having
their surplus goods purchased at
remarkable prices, sent overseas as
free items to compete with for-
eign producers (who are being
driven bankrupt by the competi-
tion), and thus are able to control
the means of production of these
"co-operating" nations. Does it
seem unnatural to wonder just
who benefits by ECA?
But this is only one of the many
documentations that Sen. Taylor
quoted. His accusations were
neither vague nor illogical, al-
though they were delineated as
such. I admit that it requires time
for a correct and proper analysis
and I hOpe that next time The
Daily will choose two men who
are in less of a hurry.

Re: AVC
-K
To the Editor:
I NOTE WITH NO satisfaction.
that in The Daily's news cov-
erage of Saturday's counter-
charges in l'affaire Babson, it '
neglected to inform that among
the 14 protesters were some who,
at Wednesday's AVC meeting, had
voted along with Babson and Tu-
min.
As one who voted against both
Shaffer's resolutions, and against
discontinuing the proposed forum,
I would like it clearly known that
I did so on the dictates of my own
conscience, after exercising a re- i
flective process that was in nq
wise controlled by either Babson,
Tumin, or other alien ideologies.
I especially want this fact made
public because I fear that history
will pronounce men guilty by as-
sociation with the injudicious, fal-
lacious, and libelous statements
made by these two. Around the
latter, in particular do I resent
the lying slur cast on Brooklyn
College, and all the attendant im-
plications which the remark was
designed to convey. Closing the
barn door rather late, when they
had to produce the facts they had
to admit that not one of the
"packees" were former Brooklyn
students, and as a matter of fact,
there were only two Brooklyn stu-
dents present.
But if they now try and tell you
that these two voted "on orders
from Brooklyn,"' don't you believe
it-because they split, I voting my
convictions, he voting his. Would
that I possessed the narrowness of
a Tumin or Babson, that I might
simplify complex issues and decide
which of us has broken the old
school tie.
-Arthur Moskoff.
To the Editor:
WISH to commend the Amer-
ican Veterans' Committee for
its fight against the Shaffer boys.
Whether or not the Commies are
trying to infiltrate into other AVC
chapters is unknown to me. This
is my first semester at Michigan
and I've never met Shaffer or any
of "his" fellow-travellers, but the
tactics used in the attempt to gain
control of the AVC chapter is a
familiar pattern. Come early in
mass, stay late, harp on minor and
petty points until the regular AVC
members leave because of the late
hours. Then they can do their
work.
I plead that all AVC members
turn out for the next meeting and
stay until its completion. I also,
plead that non-AVC vets join to
help their ex-service buddies win
their fight. The principles of the,
AVC are fine. Let's keep 'em lib-
eral but let's keep it American.
-Seymour Muskovitz.

Looking Back

15 YEARS AGO TODAY:
The death of Ring Lardner made Daily
Staffers recall the great writer when as a
shy student he wrote poems for The Daily
back in 1916. Later as a visiting alumnus and
a famous writer Lardner would return to
the University with a poem-a circumstance
that caused harried night editors to shout,
"well, anyway, we'll have one story to print
next fall when Ring Lardner comes to town."
10 YEARS AGO TODAY:
Michigan renewed football relations with
Yale after a lapse of 55 years with an "On
To Yale~" train trio sponnred bhy the Union.
