Arts*Festival

"EMPORARILY OVERSHADOWED by the
past May Festival and present Drama
stival, a group of creative students have
en hard at work with plans for an all-
udent Arts Festival this weekend.
Given the go-ahead signal two weeks
go by Dean Erich Walter, they formed
loosely-knit Inter-Arts Union composed
f members of Play Production, dance
roup, art and architecture school and
ausic school. By forming a permanent
rganization they hope to make this com-
ined-arts experiment an annual campus
vent.
The Festival, which is featuring a stu-
nt written play "Death of a Minotaur"
td student composed symphony "Symphony
B" in addition to original poetry, musical
iitorials published in The Michigan Daily
r written by members of The Daily staff
d represent the views of the writers only.

compositions and choreography, is attract-
ing nation-wide notice in art circles. It will
mark the first time a college group has
attempted to present a concerted weekend of
the arts.
Prominent men in the arts, including
James Johnson Sweeney, director of the
department of painting and sculpture of
the New York Museum of Modern Art, are
coming to Ann Arbor to appear on the pro-
grain and watch this first such effort in
an Art Festival.
In addition to offering the city of Ann
Arbor a weekend of creative arts, the
Arts Festival is giving loval student tal-
ent an incentive to create, a chance for
recognition by an above-average audience,
and encouragement for participation in
the creative arts.
The enthusiastic response by art,music
and speech students to the idea of an all-
student Arts Festival augurs well for the
perpetuation of the Festival. General cam-
pus backing will insure the success of such
a venture.

PD RATHER BE RIGHT:
No Equation

By SAMUEL GRAFTON
T HE ARGUMENT that we ought to resume
having an ambassador in Spain rests
on a plausible but faulty equation. We send
ambassadors to Moscow, it is said, and
we don't like Communism; why shouldn't
we send an ambassador to Spain, even if we
don't like fascism? It is a neat approach,
you could ie it up with a silken bow, but if
you look it over carefully you will see that
it is about as sound as a $3 bill.
* * *
THE SITUATION with regard to Spain is
quite different, and the equation is no
equation. We have no anti-Francoist pro-
gram, on the military and propagandist and
economic levels, in any way comparable with
our anti-Communist program.
To put it bluntly, there is an open ques-
tion in regard to our attitude toward
Spain, which does not exist in the case
of our attitude toward Russia.
European labor, which, generally, fears
and hates Franco, and which, presumably we
are trying to win over to our side, will not
at all accept the equation that for us to
send an ambassador to Spain has no more
meaning than for us to send an ambassador
to Moscow. We have made our position
toward Russian Communism clear. We have
not made our position toward Spanish fas-
cism nearly as clear.
FOR, IN ACTUAL FACT, most pvrspec-
tives of resumed ambassadorial rela-

tions with Madrid do include, even if only
in a nebulous way, the idea of working with
Spain. It may be only a potential and lim-
ited partnership that is thus projected, per-
haps one confined only to the military
sphere, to the protection of the Continent
against Russia, but none the less the idea
of working with Spain goes with the idea
of sending an ambassador to Madrid, in a
way in which the ' idea of working with
Russia is not involved in the sending of
an ambassador to Moscow.
I AM WILLING TO ADMIT that we may
be suffering certain awkwardnesses and
inconveniences by not having an ambassador
at Madrid. But sometimes men and nations
do have to suffer inconveniences for the
sake of keeping a position clear, and in
those cases one suffers the inconveniences
because of the value of the principle in-
volved. This is certainly not a new predica-
ment in the history of human dilemnas.
Nobody would be seriously excited about
our sending an ambassador to Spain if
we were conducting an anti-fascist cam-
paign that matched, in vigor and in-
tensity, our campaign against Commu-
nism. Our diplomatic relations with Spain
then would not be an issue; there would
be no argument and no discussion.
In other words, it is for those who are
trying to make a balanced equation out of
the sending of ambassadors to Moscow and
Madrid, really to complete the equation.

MATTER OF FACT:
Dying City
By STEWART ALSOP
(The following dispatch was written in Shang-
hai but cabled from Hong Kong to avoid cen-
sorship.)
SHANGHAI - Like any frightened city,
Shanghai is a city of wild, mutually con-
tradictory rumors. It is difficult enough to
find out what is really happening in Na-
tionalist Shanghai, which is so soon to die. It
is impossible to do more than guess what
is likely to happen in Communist Shanghai,
which is so soon to come into being. Yet
out of all the darkness and confusion, one
can discern a few firm facts and a few
reasonable probabilities.
* * *
THE NATIONALIST generals still assert,
rather wearily, that Shanghai will be
defended to the last man. But is is a fairly
firm fact that any serious intention of really
defending the city has been abandoned.
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek is
known to have favored a "scorched-earth"
policy for Shanghai, and a hopeless fight
to the finish. He is also known to have
been here recently, first on an island in
the Whangpoo, and then in the Officers
Moral Endeavor Hostel in the city. But
it is now generally believed that he has
left the city, and all likelihood of a real
defense of the city has left with him.
Instead, war materials and valuables are
being shipped out to Formosa, the Gen-
eralissimo's last-stand island off the South
China coast. The leading Nationalists-pol-
iticians, bankers ani the like-have already
left on Chiang's orders. Four large Chinese
ships are lying off the Whangpoo to evac-
uate the best troops when that becomes nec-
essary.
Meanwhile, a secret committee, headed
by an aged diplomat, has been formed and
is believed to have made contact already
with the Communists. The committee is to
serve as an interim body to hand over con-
trol of the great city to its conquerors. The
Communists are reliably reported to have
gathered their few trained administra-
tors at Peiping with instructions to be
ready to take over Shanghai at any time
after tomorrow, May 15.
Most people here believe that the Com-
munists will walk in, with very little blood-
shed, not long after that date. Thus, Na-
tionalist Shanghai is to die a graceless,
unresisting death.
AS FOR COMMUNIST SHANGHAI, the
darkness closes in thicker than ever. It
is reasonable to suppose that Shanghai un-
der the Communists, with American aid
withdrawn, must undergo a period of total
economic chaos. It is also reasonable to sup-
pose that without foreign trade, Shanghai,
whose whole reason for being is trade with
the West, will die. It is this which adds
weight to such signs and portents as ' an
unseasonable Christmas card which a major
American employer received here recently.
It said: "We announce hereby Chinese
people blame only foreign imperialisms
but we hope our foreign friends still re-
main in China and promise to protect
them (including lives and property). We
welcome foreign investments to develop
Chinese economy and safeguard their spe-
cial interests. We greet heartily and give
special treatment to those technicians
willing to participate in economic recon-
struction of China."
The Christmas card has its importance as
an accurate reflection of the Chinese Com-
munist Party line on Shanghai. The Chinese
Communists apparently mean to allow a
degree of contact with the West which would
certainly bring the Kremlin's lash down
hard over the shoulders of any European
satellite.
Business men here are inclined to equate
with line with Titoism. It is not neces-

sarily anything of the sort. The Chinese
Communists are likely to allow some
trade and contact with the West simply
because they must. Yet, the Christmas
card does suggest at least that the West
will have an economic lever in Com-
nunist China which the West entirely
lacks in the rest of the Soviet world.
One American here, who spent the war
years in Chungking, remarked as he sipped
a cocktail in the comfortable lounge of the
American Club, "In Chungking we had hope
and no luxury, here we have luxury and no
hope." For the short run, he was right, of
course. Nothing will stop the Communists
from taking Shanghai. But for the long run,
while it is foolish to talk of Titoism now, we
must wait to see how this economic lever
works. There is a chance that it may even
promote the central Western objective-a
China independent of the Kremlin. But the
chance is slender.

Thanks ...
To the Editor:
I WISH TO THANK music critic
Arthur Kennett for clearing
up a matter that has been
troubling me for some time. Ever
since Martial Singher sang the
role of Pelleas at the Met, I have
suspected that he was actually a
tenor rather than a baritone. Now
Mr. Kennett has revealed the truth
of the matter in his review. Mr.
Singher has obviously been con-
cealing his true voice from the
public by singing such roles at
the Met as: Lindorf, Coppelius, Dr.
Miracle, and Dapertutto in the
Tales of Hoffman; Escamillo in
Carmen; Valentin in Faust; Wolf-
ram in Tannhauser; Amfortas in
Parsifal; Figaro in both the Bar-
ber of Seville and The Marriage
of Figaro; Mercutio in Romeo and
Juliette; Marcello in La Boheme;
and Frederic in Lakme.
As to Mr. Haugh, while I must
confess that it hadn't occurred to
me that he was a baritone, now
that Mr. Kennett has pointed that
fact out, I'm forced to admit that
Mr. Haugh does look a little like
a baritone.
Also, I wish to thank Elaine Bro-
van for enabling us to realize to
some degree how the voices of
Galli-Curci and Lucretia Bori ac-
tually sounded. Those of us who
are acquainted with these great
artists only through their record-
ings probably would not have real-
ized that Miss Tassinari's voice
was awakening echoes' of these
artists.
In closing, may I add that I
always enjoy the reviews of The
Daily's music critics.

Souvenir .. .
To the Editor:
IN THIS Paris spring, my hus-
band and I feel far away from
the current American hysteria, re-
ported by The Daily in its articles
on Communist trials, student ex-
pulsions and faculty dismissals.
Here, in a sunny Montparnasse
cafe, one can discuss pacts, im-
perialism or Communism impar-
tially with an ardor proportionate
to the real im~mediacy of a ques-
tion that has not been muddled
or muddied legislatively. We feel
infinitely free of bans and bills.
This freedom is not just a word,
it is a daily practice. We look at
the corner newsstands and see pa-
pers of every shade of opinion
from Communist to far right.
These papers share the unfortu-
nate fault of slanting what little
news they print, but they escape
an AP uniformity and gain an im-
portant advantage: free expres-
sion of different viewpoints. To-
day, a student standing at the
entrance door of the Sorbonne
was calling, "Ask for, read Clarte,
the student Communist paper."
Here this is an ordinary sight, no
cause for disturbance, but we
smiled as we thought of the splut-
tering in Lansing if this happened
on the Michigan Diag.
A spirit of equanimity greeted
the rec'ent Communist Peace Con-
ference here. The symbol of the
occasion was a pigeon, designed by
Picasso, which stimulated many
discussions and some jokes but no

apprehension or violence, no kneel-
ing on curbs. On est tres loin de
New York. This same spirit of es-
sential calm prevailed on May
Day. We saw the leftist parade,
with an impressive number of
participants, ordinary, non-revo-
lutionary people, children and
grand-parents included. Two of
France's leading poets-Commu-
nists as it happens-marched too.
A chant was repeated: "Nous vou-
lons la paix"-this was its most
militant note.
We suppose the big difference
between American hysteria and
the relative calm of Paris is one
of preoccupation: our leaders
know that they don't want any
part of Communism; the French
have this uncertainty-a passible
"colonization," as the Commu-
nists charge, or Communism, as
the rightist alarmists fear. What-
ever the cause, the French enjoy
a liberty of expression that is fast
disappearing at home; Commu-
nism is not gagged as a threat but

is heard as a nuance of political
opinion. We wish wistfully that
we could take this freedom of
speech home with us-a most pre-
cious souvenir of France.

Not Too Difficult,. .
To the Editor:
I WISH TO clear up any mystery
which envelopes the sculptures
on the Administration Building.
The matter came to my attention
when I saw an article in The Daily
entitled"Modern Sculpture Con-
fuses Students." Having worked
for Marshall Fredericks for five
months, I feel qualified to attempt
a brief explanation; it will be
based on one I wrote in February
for The Daily, which apparently
was seen by no one.
The two bronzes on the east
side entitled "The Dream of the
Young Man" and "The Dreams of
the Young Woman" symbolize the
dreams and aspirations of youth.
The former shows a sleeping boy
dreaming of high adventure and
romance, shown by two galleons
complete with mermaids on the
prows; the lattershows a young
girl imagining a happy life of
abundance depicted by a stalwart
pioneer and various farm animals.
Also on the east side is a symbol
of Administration in limestone.
In addition to these there are sev-
eral small aluminum reliefs on
the tower; they are flower and
plant forms, meant to be purely
decorative.
On the west side there are two
large limestone reliefs, one of Hia-
watha, the other of Aesop. These
obviously stand for education. An
old Indian is teaching the young
Hiawatha; Aesop was noted for
his astute fables. Moreover, on
the west side there are nine alum-
inum sculptures depicting God,
Nature, and Man. God is symbol-
ized by hands holding the uni-
verse in front of the flame of eter-
nal life,- while Nature is in the
form of plant forms growing in
the sun. Man is shown as a rock-
et ship streaming into space. Last-
ly there are four limestone reliefs
depicting four parts of education;
a touch of humor has been added
here. At the north extremity are
two groups of baboons; the fine
arts are symbolized by baboons
playing musical instruments; sci-
ence shows more baboons peering
studiously into a microscope. On
the other end are literature, shown
by a young boy reading, and na-
ture study, depicted by a girl feed-
ing small animals.
The sculpture is dedicated to
youth and education. What could
be more appropriate for a uni-
versity? Although the technique
is in the modern tradition, i.e.
simple and direct, none of the
work is meant to be incomprehen-
sible to the observer. The subject
matter is for the most part his-
torical; however, the thought be-
hind it applies to this or any age.
Take another look. With a little
thought you will discover that .it
is not too difficult to understand.
-Pamela Stump.

Discrimination ...
To the Editor:
TFC, PAN HEL, the Student Leg-
islature, and the editors of the
Michigan Daily are defeating their
very aim of "freedom" when they
shout 'Discrimination!" at every
turn. They do not seem to realize
that discrimination is not only a
daily action, but a necessary one
Discriminate, as given in the dic-
tionary, means 'to separate by dis-
cerning differences'. The Univer-
sity 'discriminates' when it chooses

for admittance only those with a
high scholastic high school record.
It 'discriminates' when admitting
to the graduate program only
those students who show the nec-
essary ability. Yes, it even 'dis-
criminates' in placing women stu-
dents in the woman's dormitories
and the, men in the men's dormito-
ries. We discriminate every da3
when we buy clothing, food, cars,
pencils-everything. That is our
privilege, just as the above regu-
lations are the right of the Uni-
versity. When one shouts "Dowr
with discrimination," he mighi
just as well be shouting, "Dowr
with somebody's freedom." Is thai
freedom yours? Yes, it is every-
body's...
With such an infinite variety of
organizations, both social and la-
borite, there is surely at least one,
and more likely several, that would
r welcome a given individual wit-
open arms, if he feels he must join
something in order to be happy.
Of course, he always has the priv-

ilege of doing what the founders
of the aforementioned organiza-
tions did-start one of his own,
tailored to fit his own wishes and
needs, instead of trying to inflict
his needs and wishes upon an or-
ganization that 'someone else
sweated over to start. Change the
existing organization, which al-
ready fits the specific needs and
wishes of a group, and you imme-
diately become an interloper, who
has proved himself too lazy to
start his own group, one who would
rather encroach upon the rights
of others by changing their organ-
ization into something they do not
wish. Show the spunk that the
founders of the existing organiza-
tion did-go out and found your
own, unless you're just trying to
join the existing group for the sole
purpose of showing the world
you're 'just as good as they are.' In
closing, let me avow that I have
never belonged to a sorority, so my
arguments are based, not on prej-
udice. but on logic and common
sense. I hope The Daily, IFC, Pan
Hel, and the Student Legislature
will stop crying in their beer, and
put an end to their nonsense.

Known Fact...
To the Editor:
VERY red-blooded American
must surely be thrilled with the
latest efforts of two of our most
stalwart defenders of freedom. I
refer specifically to senators
Mundt and Ferguson both of
whom have brand new bills aimed
at Communist, subversive, totali-
tarian activities before the Senate
Judiciary Committee. Let it not
be said that these two courageous
front line fighters for free insti-
tutions have been discouraged in
any way by past events. We all
know that a year ago this spring
a couple of million Communist
agents in this country protested
the Mundt-Nixon Bill and thereby
fooled the senators into dropping
it, but this only instilled Mundt
and Fergie with more fight. They
realized that subsequent demands
for housing, social security, civil
rights, aid to education, health
legislation and world peace proved
their original contention that a
whole slew of hard-core reds were
at work in this country pressing
for these socialistic measures. Fer-
guson and Mundt have worked out
a marvelously simple and effective
answer: crush the hard core, and
all these un-American things cease
to bother the Congress. Also, and
I think this is quite clever, don't
let anybody testify on the bills
unless he swears up and down that
he's a Democrat or Republican.
This eliminates witnesses who
might be against the bills. It is a
known fact that such measures
hurt no one except Communists.

At the Orpheum.. .
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT: Clark Gable
and Claudette Colbert.
EVEN IN SIXTEEN YEARS time no one
has trudged down a Florida highway
with quite the sophisticated aplomb that
Gable and Colbert did in "It Happened One
Night." And it is a tribute to them, as well
as, to the movie, that the intervening years
have in no respect dulled the edge of this
fine movie.
The poor boy-rich girl theme is ancient;
but "It Happened One Night" represcents
the one smashingly successful attempt to
bring it to the screen. The interminable
number of grade B (or worse) movies in-
corporating this theme since 1933, occa-
sionally have clouded the fact that this
movie was the original from which all
DRAMA
BOY MEETS GIRL, produced by the Uni-
versity of Michigan Student Players at
the Masonic Temple.
IN BELLA AND SAMUEL Spewack's rollick-
ing take-off on what goes on behind the
doors of a Hollywood producer's office, the
Student Players last night proved that en-
thusiasm can go a long way toward covering
up lack of acting experience.
Although the pace was uneven in spots
and there was a general tendency to rush
through lines, the final result was much
good humor, and the cast seemed to be
having as much fun with the Spewack quips
as the audience.
Sidney Corbett, playing one of a team
of uninhibited hack writers, turned in easily
the best performance of the evening. He
demonstrated excellent timing, a natural
and easy-going stage manner and a capacity
for a genuine feeling for the character he
portrayed.

football star as a languid, milktoast British

the others were adapted; but the freshness
which one senses while watching this
movie obliterates , any memory of the
others.
Clark Gable, looking alarmingly younger
than in recent years, is a natural as the
breezy newspaper reporter unimpressed with
the twenty million dollar premium bru-
nette. On the other hand, Claudette Cblbert,
seems to have acquired neither years nor
wrinkles in the years between.
Remembering less inspired roles that
both have been burdened with (in post-
war years in particular), it is a pleasure
to watch this charming couple laugh their
way through the improbable story of an
heiress who takes a bus ride to escape an
indignant parent and falls in love with a
fast-talking, flat-broke reporter.
The almost immortal wall of Jericho and
hitch-hiking scenes along with Miss Col-
bert's "gams", have lost none of their punch.
Clark Gable's hiking lesson brings back to
mind the days when I could find a justifi-
cation for his wide-spread appeal.
For my money this movie has a rightful
place in the archives of the Museum of
Modern Art along with Chaplin and Garbo.
To have missed it will be to have missed
one of the few illustrations of what has
"made" the American movie industry.
