God Essential
Seeger Says
Asserts Peace
Made, Not Bought
"'One world, which is the broth-
erhood of man, is not possible
without the fatherhood of God,"
said Dr. Raymond Seeger, profes-
sor of physics at George Washing-
ton University yesterday at Rack-
ham Assembly Hall.
Dr. Seeger told a group of stu-
dents and townspeople that you
can't buy peace, you must make
it. God must come down into the
hearts of men, then they will
have the power to make it, he said.
,* *
IT TAKES three basic steps to
make peace, he explained. But we
must have God in us before our

Room, League.
first step, which is humility, he
said. "We must recognize that
there must be two to make peace
arid each must concede a little.
These two, whether they be
nations or men, must make an
agreement, Dr. Seeger added.
"If you can agree on some
higher level than your original-
agreement, don't stop there; go
on agreeing on levels higher
than the one before; that is the
straight road to peace."
Peace is essentially a spiritual
agreement, he said. Then to keep
the peace, all you have to do is
to keep that agreement, he added.
Men must practice peace in-
side themselves, Dr. Seeger em-
phasized. "You as students must
practice it in your motives. You
can start today-make an agree-
mnent with your roommate, with
your family or with your teachers.
Give into them a little, and as you
practice peace you will grow tre-
mendously in understanding."

Committee Okays
Full ECA Funds
Chairman Objects to Amendment
Calling for Eiuropean Unification
WASHINGTON-UP)-The full $5,580,000,000 the administration
asked for the second installment of the Marshall plan was approved
last night by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, 13 to 0.
The committee added an amendment encouraging the "unifica-
tion of Europe," despite objections from Chairman Connally (D-Tex.)
chat it would give a "hollering point" to Russia, which charges the
U.S. with dictating to foreign nations.
THE COMMITTEE decided against making any cuts at this
time in the $5,580,000,000, which is designed to speed recovery of
Western Europe. Price fluctuations are too uncertain, committee
leaders felt, to warrant a cut now, but several Senators reserved the
right to ask one later.
"If there should be a great price reduction, then ECA will be
able to save its dollars," Connally said.
The committee made a significant decision not to turn ECA
into an instrument for supporting the domestic commodity markets.
* * * *
ECA CHIEF Paul Hoffman was directed by a statement in the
record to "give sympathetic consideration" to the U.S. economy in
commodity purchases. But this was not made mandatory.
Wherever possible, Hoffman is to purchase surplus American
farm products. But the only mandatory provision on commodity
buying is that 15 per cent of the wheat shipped to Europe must
be in the form of flour.
The fund authorized in the measure is the second installment
of the Marshall plan. To become law, the bill must be passed by
Senate and House' and signed by the President. Then an actual
appropriation bill to carry out the program must be passed by
* *
CHAIRMAN CONNALLY (D-Tex.) said after the committee
"Several members made reservations that they may change their
vote when the bill goes to the Appropriations Committee."
Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich.) said the members decided
they could make no cut at this time with the commodity market
fluctuating as it is.
Connally said he will take the authorization bill to the Senate
for a vote as soon as the "log jam" created by a Southern filibuster
is ended.
Allocate Unused ECA Funds
For Chinese Students in U.S.
A "substantial sum" of unused ECA funds will be made available
to aid Chinese students in the United States who are unable to get
money from home, according to Dr. Esson M. Gale, director of the
International Center.
The Economic Cooperation Commission for China Aid will allocate
the money from suspended ECA funds originally slated for the Chi-
nese government.
STATE DEPARTMENT agreement, to the move was secured by

MOLOTOV AND SUCESSOR-Vyacheslav M. Molotov (right) was

James Zarichny, ousted Michi-
gan State College student recent-
ly denied permission to speak on
campus by the University Lecture
Committee, was refused a confer-
ence yesterday with Prof. Carl
Brandt, head of the committee,
Zarichny, in Ann Arbor "to ex-
plain the facts of the case to as
many students as possible," said
that Brandt had first agreed to
meet with him provided that he
appeared alone, but that Brandt
withdrew the acceptance when
Zarichny asked why he must ap-
pear by himself.
* * *
BRANDT, WHEN queried by
The Daily about the report, re-
plied only, "No comment."
"It is unfortunate that the
University of Michigan is the
first place to deny me permis-
sion to speak, but this-reflects
the increasing infringements
upon academic freedom all over
the country," Zarichny declared.
"However, I have the greatest
confidence that the students,
when made aware of the issues
involved, will act decisively to save
academic freedom on a national
level," he asserted.

SINCE HIS expulsion from
MSC, Zarichny has presented his
case to students on a number of
midwestern campuses, including
Northwestern, Chicago, Minneso-
ta, Wisconsin, Indiana and Wes-
tern Reserve.
Released concurrently with
Zarichny's arrival in Ann Ar-
bor was the text of a letter to
Pres. Ruthven from Ernest
Goodman, 1948 Progressive Par-
ty candidate for State Attorney
General, whose appearance here
with Zarichny was also turned
down by the Lecture Conunittee.
Referring to the committee's
statement that "no educational
purpose will be served by the use
of University facilities for an at-
tack of this kind on a sister insti-
tution," Goodman said, "The ba-
sis of the objection appears to be

"IT SEEMS to me that when

THE ILLINI were handed the
title Saturday night when Wis-

world with a 45-43 win over sec-

still up to the invaders to prove
that they really merited the crown
by beating the defending title-
Coach Harry Combes' outfit,
confident and fast at the out-
set, weren't equal to the task.
Three times they managed to
pull into a tie with the Maize
and Blue squad in the first half,
and once pulled into an 18-17
lead at the midpoint.
WHEN THE Wolverines walked
off the court at halftime on the
long end of a 32-27 count, the
issue was still in doubt.
But within four and a half
minutes after ther stad of
next stanza, the Maize and
Blue had pulled away to a 48-

down to a walk.
Forward Mack Suprunowiez,
who started out the winter at a

Black Will Be
First Speaker
Since Ban End
The "Future of the Republican
Party in Michigan" will be dis-
cussed by former State Attorney
General Eugene Black at an open
meeting of the Young Republicans
at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in the
Henderson Room of the League.
Black will be the first political
speaker to appear on campus since

the removal of the Speakers Ban.
The Young Republicans will
hold a business meeting at 7:30
p.m. preceeding his talk.
Black, who served as Attorney
General under Kim Sigler, was
responsible for exposing corrupt
political practices in the state or-
ganizations of both the Democrat
and Republican parties in 1946.
He is a very controversial figure
in GOP circles, according to
Howard Johnson, vice-president
of the Young Republicans.

honesty and integrity," Johnson,
