Keyhole Espionage

ALTITOUGH the United States long agp
slammed shut the door on most immi-
griation, the House Armed Services Com-
m1ittee has unanimously recommended the
opening of a keyhole. Through it they hpe
to squeeze 100 persons each year who have
been helpful to American spies.
Although the bill is strictly hush-hush,
committeemen have said the plan would
ot'fer sanctuary to renegade Communists
who might have valuable information
abomut nations in the Russian block.
The whole pan can be condemned both
for what it does and what it fails to do:
Finst, what it does, is offer U.S. citizen-
ship as a bribe to those who would betray
the system of government they had already
es-ponsed and these could be swayed. "for a
pr iel,., It would make citizenship just an-
o the r weapon with which to fight the Cold
War against Russia. Citizenship would be a
prize that Communists and persons caugh t
be(tween the two great, powers could win if
they would be willing to p~lay the illegal
balgae.It would be a reward for allegiance
and a tool for bringing about blind accept-
ance of our ideology such as the European
Recovery Program has become.
/The proposal also subverts the ideal of
allowing entry to the United States to

displaced persons who want only a chance
to live and work usefully ini a free society
such ais ours. Bitterness will no0 (10ubt
prevail in the 111 camps of Central Europe
at the proposed policy of allowing entry
to only 205,000 displaced persons and yet
creating a keyhole for persons of dubious
character to gain entrance!
In overall philosophy, the proposal, which
permits the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency
to offer residence to those who aid Amer-
ican agents is destruct ive rather tha;in con-
structive.
Its object is to ta down the Tissian
ideology regardless of our ethical principles.
Its value is for sabotage and gaining of mili-
tary informaltion to aid in a third World
War. Its result will be even greter ai<t<
onism between Rsi and the United Sae
and another sttel) towards thIt ;t1 war.
A constructive appjroach1 to the prob-
lems of containing (commuis m, strength -
ening the democracies and achieving
world peace and security lies in imiple-
menting our own ideal of freedom. This
would include carrying our real share in
the job of relocating displaced persons in
habitable surroundings andl most, certainly
refusing to employ the underhanded spy
tactics of totalitarian nations.
Only in this way, c'an we convince the rest
of the world that democracy is not a facade
for ruth less exploitation of h el pless peoples
in the name of fascism, but an honiest sys-
temn of government wvhich offers a basis for
bringing the world together ais a1 peaceful
whole.

Education 11
A NEW YORK Metrooplitan Life Insur.
ante executive hit the nail smack on the
head the other day when he warned that
"the nation's educational house is on fire."
Stemming from a tremendous popula-
tion surge during the war and, postwar
eras which threatens to overtax the al-
ready inadequate schooling facilities, £u=
ture years are 'sore than likely to wit-
iiess a perilous slump in educational stand-
ards throughout the country. The worried
executive, company vice-president Louis
A. Dublin, foresees further two outlying
effects that are bound to culminate in
one big "unholy mess":
(1.) By virtue of this overcrowding, the
basic structure of U.S. business and indus-
trial systems will suffer a disastrous
crippling, and
(2) An impairing blow to both national
morale and morals will be struck.
Without a severe stretch of the imagina-
tion, one can conjure uip a pretty vivid pic-
ture based upon these all-too -representa -
tive° foreshadowings. Coupled with a pitiful
lack of buildings, textbooks and school fur-
niture, the scarcity* of good teaching ma-
terial should result in a veritable educational
sweatbox ten years hence.
We shrink in horror at the- proposed
1960 version of college-bound G.T. Joe, who
will probably be no better off scholasti-
cally than his young son or daughter;
both may be victimized by teacher-book
dropoffs and alarming enrollment ava-
lanches.

r
Doomsday is just around the corner, we
feel, if authorities persist in their lacka-
daisical approach to the dilemma. So little
has been achieved to date that educators
fear wholesale school shutdowns on a coast-
to-coast hookup.}
Statistics tell ues that 1950 will uIsler In
an estimiated 800,0t00 gracde and high
school students to join forces with the
25,000,000 of this year.
Birth rates are also on mile-a-minute
upgrades; an eastern insurance :firm has
figured an average of 3,000,0(00 new citizens
per annum, starting in 1950, if current scales
can be considered relative.
The all-important remedy? Simple-if only
"foresighted" strategists would get on the
proverbial ball. Keep the problem on a
strictly local point of attack, because an
attempted federal solution could only bring
derision and antagonism from apprehensive
community governments. The support of all
taxpayers mrust be secured, once and for all
---they know, but are hesitant to admit, that
the burdens of the generations to follow
are their responsibility now.
To combat these expected jum-ps, a great
deal of money is needed. And if and when
the shekels start rolling ip, students of all
ages can again seek learning in bigger and
more substantially equipped institutions;
far-sighted sources will no longer need to
worry about thes American "educational
house" burning to the groundi.

lAST NIGHT JAZZ came to Hilil Audi-
toriumi through the courtesy of the
Student Legislature and Norman Granz, the
father of the Jlazz a t the Philharmonic show.

The show was late, stayed too long, and
then left in at hutrryxwi th ''ruffles and loi ir-
ishes.'" Grans xvas in a rat her uglIy mood gall
dun'rng the conieit, but he 'brounght some
fine musicians with him who made uip for
any bad impressions he may, have left. 'rho
music was well wvorth listening to between
Granz's sly remarks, although the show
could have been cut considerably without,
any appreciable loss.
Ella Fitzgerald, Flip Phillips, Colemn.i
Hawkins, and Fatts Navarro proved thenm-
selves to be outstanding show-.people. Ella
sang Lover MI~an and finished with a terrific
coda that left the audience breathless. F''lip
found himself right at home again breaking
uip the audience with his driving tenor so
characteristic of his work with the old
Herman outfit. Tommy Ttm'k, a new find,
did admirably on the tromabone and should
be quit( a. threat; to the 01(d timers in the
butsiness xx'tlhin ia short time. The whole
affair finished with P'crdido which. thoughi
done in brilliant J. A. ''. P. fashion, sonmc-
howv disappointed those in thre audience who
expect-ed it to be like the recorded version.
The entire concert was primarily swving. and
few new swounds weie to be hieard in the
be-hop vein. Fatts Na}varro 'took the honors
in that phase. and played Night in Tuinisia

leltely exonerated by the cor-
oner's inquest, even when the evi-
dence pmoved that the man had
been shot in the stomach while
hie w~as handcuffed. The victim of
this northern-style lynching was
Roosevelt Perkins, a Negro The
only crime he was known to have
committed at the time of his
mur'der was that of speeding
through a stoplight and side-swip-
ing another' car. Once captured
aid( handcuuffedl. Perkins escaped.
'Thle sheriff considered Perkins to
be a dangerous criminal, so dan-
ger'ous that hie fox'med a posse
of' about fifty' men. including teen-
ager's, to hunt for and capture
Roosevelt Per'kins, the traffic vio-
lator'. When the posse had been
formed the sheriff1 received a wire
fr'om Lansing, Michigan, inform-
lug him that the car which Per-
kills had been driving was a stolen
vehicle. The sheiiff, assuming that
Perkins had stolen the car, imme-
diately told the posse and they
started theirm man-hunt, deter-
mined to bmring this menace to
justice. They eventually tracked
Perkins down and a ninetten year
old member of the posse shot Per-
kinis in the abdomen. His excuse
was th at Perkins had been
running away, backwards evident-
ly,
That the posse was formed to
track clown a man who had com-
mitted only a misdemeanor is evi-
dence in my mind of the complete
guilt of the sheriff. And that the
posse included teen-age members
of the community makes tie sher-
iff doubtly guilty. The whole In-
cident is only one example of the
way southern lynch law has m-
grated north. Every ctzen of
Michigan should be ashamed that
such a crime, could go unnoticed
in our so-called Democracy. In-
cidents such as the Roosevelt Per-
kins case, and there are many,
bear' within them the seeds of
Fascism, if they are allowed to
go by without~ protest. Tjhe danger
to Anierica is not from a force
without the country, but from the
apathy of our own citizens to the
conditions that cause lynching to
become an accepted form of emo-
tional outlet.

Israeli Victory

TO DAYS AGO, Israel and Egypt signed
an armistice on the island of Rhodes.
After nine months of fighting, the Arabs
have evidently come to the realization the
state of Israel exists as a powerful entity
that cannot be overthrown by force.

owed four weeks ago, when time British
CII NIEMA
REBECCA: Joa n Fontaine, Laurence Oliv-
ier, an md Jumdi th Anderson.
ALFRED HITCHCOCK, long associated in
movie goer's minds with the creation of
masterfutl suspense, has scored an artistic
triumph with Rebecca. It is a. distinguished
motion picture worthy of the highest praise.
Perhlaps it is a minor triumnph in itself
that. I tan still say t his, having seen the
movGie foum' Itimes (only Oince or my own
voliion'.
T)he most notewvorthy feature of the movie
is thle host of comp tenti performemrs assigned
to speak its line s. From time starring roles
down to the most minor ones, the charac-
terizations have beeni handled with the ut-
most, skill. Joan Fontaine merits unre-
,,trained applause for' her ch aracterization of
the bewildered second Mrs. deW inter. Ju-
(lit h Anderson is magnificent in her por-
trayal of the tymanical, psychopathic Mr's.
Danver's.
Mr. Hitchcock's contribution to the movie
is inestimable. Biy the employment of whole
settings like tlhe septulchral Manderly down
to little items like an embroidered 'R" on
a pillow, the memory of the dead Rebecca

government gave its reluctant recognition
to the Jewish state. The British, who dur'-
ing the period of their mandate had been
trying to convince the world that British
troops alone were preventing thet Arabs
from indulging in a bloody massacre o1'
the Jews, had to give up such wishful
thinking. Britain's critical economic sit-
uation, in addition to tihe force of world
opinion and pressure from the Labour
party's own bac'kbech'ers,1forced Bevin
to cut down considerably ou his aid to
the Arabs. Without sufficient outside help.
the Arab armies proved to be no match.
for the Ilaganah.
The armistice is a great victory for the
Jews. It gives Israel all of the Negev, except
for the narrow. Gaza coastal strip. Israel
now looks less like a five-year-old';s attempt
to put a- Jigsaw puzzle together, and more
like a state with some prospect of per'man-
ence.
There will probably be some question as
to the right of Israel to take by force a par't
of Palestine which was not given her under
the UN partition decision. It must be remem-
bered tha t nonie of the~ nationis who voted
fox' partit iomn 'onsidleredl the proposal1 ideal.
They voted for p~art ition because it was; the
nearest appr'oac'h to a compromuise bet ween
Zionist and Arab claiims.
They felt that Arab threats against the
Jewish state were only a bluff, and that
the Arab states would not attempt to
forcefully overthrow a UN decision. -They
knew that the UN would be po- euress to
enforce a tdecision if either party refused
to abide by it. Therefore they chose tihe
only reasonably just solution that seemed
practicable at tihe time.
Next week Israel, for the second time, will
send its application foin UN membership to
the Security Council. The boundaries of Is-
rael ar'e still far from settled. Trans-Jor-

ITo thle dtr

IT HAS BEEN PROPOSED that
the ntumber of allowvable cuts
be limited, i.e., that attendance at
class be made compulsor'y. Stich a
muove is to the advantagle of
neither the studlents nmor the fac-
tulty.
It is a knowmn fact, and perhlaps
even unavoidhable. that certain
classes are a waste of time for the
student. Time matem'ial may be too
el'mentary or the imnstruct ion of
no help. Mamny an instmuctor reads
the text amnd will not answer any
qtuestions beyond it. In such cases
the studenit cani spend his time
more profitIably i'eading,- for' the
course'.
TIhe faculty would also not be
helped. Duing the war, when
servmce units on campus required
attendance, the lecture rooms and
even the mecitations were filled
-with students whispering, r'eading
newspapers andc sleeping. This
only makes instriuction for the
rest of thle students momre diffi-
ctult.
Pr'ofit fromn class attendance is
an individual mnatte'; blanket re-
strictions are useless. The students
came to learn,. they should be the
ones to {allot their time.
