9 Academic and Otherwise

Revolutionaries. .

STUDENT LEADERS last night blasted the
final exam schedule, saying it will pro-
vide "a hellish ordeal" and calling for "posi-
tive steps to remove the ill effect of this edu-
cational gas chamber."
A manifesto drawn up by the group hint-
ed at direct action planned for tomorrow.
It concluded with the words: "Seniors, arise;
you have nothing to lose but your degree!"
Scientific Test .. .
"OBJECTIVE" TESTS are the greatest in-
vention since lipstick, according to one
toed who encountered them in a psych

t her instructor handed her the usual sheaf
of ambiguous questions. She was stymied
by some of the questions, but gritted her
! teeth and filled in all the blanks.
The next day, the instructor greeted her

He asked her if she'd like to accept the
grade on the test as the make-up mark.
She nodded, and got a B-plus.
AND SPEAKING of the demon drink, a
friend of ours described a wonderful in-
vention at a party we attended recently.
It was a beer keg with an adjustable
spigot that would pour forth milk at the
sound of a knock on the door or the sound
of a window being jimmied.
Now all he has to do is invent the gadget.
Fisler Ex
AFTER MONTHS of profound silence the.
name of Gerhardt Eisler has hit the
front pages of the nation's newspapers once
The man who arrived in 1941 on an illegal
passport, and spent eight years of unwel-
come visiting in the United States, decided
to go home.
In spite of being under $23,500 bail, and
awaiting deportation proceedings, Eisler
managed to slip out and stow away on a
freighter bound for Communist-dominated
Poland, only to end up in a London prison.
The British government which removed
Eisler from the ship and is holding him
iU without bail asks only one question: Is
Eisler a political refugee, or a fleeing con-
The extradition treaty between England
and the United States guarantees England
the right to harbor political refugees, but
specifically demands the return of fugitive
* criminals.
While it may be true that Eisler's in-
famous political activities in the United
States, and his numerous lecturing cam-
t paigns (to which even Ann Arbor was
subjected) did earn him the title of the
nation's No. 1 Communist, these facts are
irelevant in the extradition proceedings.
For the American government hardly
wants Gerhardt Eisler back in order to
prosecute him.
The fact that he is a Communist, or any
t other "ist," means nothing; Gerhardt Eisler
fled the United States after being released
'on bail.
Eisler is guilty of passport fraud and
contempt of Congress, and has been con-
victed of both these charges by a high
American court. His appeal has been
The British lawyers defending Eisler may

er of London crumbles an falls, but Ger-
hardt Eisler must come back to the United
States and face whatever punishment Amer-

ican justice may mete out to him.

Intercepted Letter ...
AN "INTERCEPTED letter" printed in a
Detroit newspaper was addressed to the
president of the Sigma Phi house. It said:
"It is shocking to learn that there is
drinking at Michigan fraternity houses.
When did this terrible vice begin?"
Fitting Tribute
paid tribute to an outstanding teach-
er and scholar, Prof. Hereward T. Price.
The recognition was noteworthy, not
only because Prof. Price's long career
as THE teacher of Shakespeare at the
University is ending, but because the
tribute is completely appropriate.
With funds collected from many pres,
ent and past Price students, a special
Shakespeare lecture has been established
for next year.
This lecture will also be published for
the benefit of all students, here and else-
In addition, shorthand notes were tak-
en in both Shakespeare and Chaucer
courses this semester, and have been
transcribed and bound to "form the mat-
rix for the most outstanding contribution
in the history of Shakespearean criti-
cism ..."
There could be no better recognition
of Prof. Price's long career at the Uni-
versity. His students have provided as-
surance that Prof. Price's work will be
continued and preserved, and that his
enthusiasm and love for Shakespeare's
works will still be transmitted.

GERHARDT EISLER, anti-Fascist and
Communist, fled Germany in 1941. On
his way to Mexico, he unwillingly landed in
the United States.
Eisler's transit visa was completely ig-
nored by American custom officials. As a
result, he was forced to remain here for
four years, until he finally received an
exit visa. Four months later it was re-
voked without an explanation. He was
called before the House Un-American Ac-
tivities Committee and for refusal to dis-
close his political affiliations, was sen-
tenced to a year's imprisonment.
Before thi sentence had terminated, he
was convicted of misstatements on his appli-
cation for an exit visa and an additional
prison sentence of one to three years was
imposed. Eisler has repeatedly protested his
In 1948 he was sent to Ellis Island and
held for a time without bail, which he ob-
tained after staging a prolonged hunger
Held in this country as a political prisoner,
with occasional court sentences passed on
him, Eisler saw one way out. He attempted
to flee this country in the same manner
that he fled Germany eight years ago. He
stowed away on a Polish shop, Batury, of
the Gydnia-American Line. He was discov-
ered, whereupon he disclosed his identity
and paid his passage to Gydnia, Poland.
When the ship docked at Southampton,
Scotland Yard detectives were there to greet
it. The British, under an extradition treaty
with the U.S., are authorized to free any
fugitive whose offense is political.
Eisler was persecuted by the Nazis be-
cause he was an anti-Fascist. He has been
persecuted by our government because he is
a Communist. He has become a symbol of
the Communist cause.
And there have been signs that the Brit-

ish government does not wholeheartedly
agree with the United States policy towards
Communists. Harold Laski, former British
Labor Party chairman made this statement:
"I don't understand how a Labor govern-
ment can envisage sending back a man who
has not been recognized guilty, to a political
trial which will take place in such an at-
mosphere as to render his conviction a cer-

Losing Li ghts
THE FIGHT over whether to oust David
E. Lilienthal as chairman of the Atomic
Energy Commission is in reality a fight over
the future of the American soul. I am will-
ing to grant that those involved in htis
campaign, including Senator Hickenlooper,
Mr. Lilienthal's one-time supporter and now
his severest critic, are acting on the highest
possible motives.
But the fact remains that if we bounce
Mr. Lilienthal on the basis of the petty
charges raised against him, we will be
taking a standing broad jump away from
our traditionally daring American con-
ceptions of freedom and of life, straight
in the direction of the tight-shut, sealed
and battened, closed-down, fearful and
nervous security state.
We are not only deciding what the.
Atomic Energy Commission is going to be;
we are deciding what we are going to be.
* * *
THE COMMISSION, under Mr. Lilienthal,
has offended the Congressional Joint
Committee on Atomic Energy by granting a
fellowship to a man described as a self-
avowed Communist, and by waiting some
six or seven weeks before reporting the
loss of a small amount of Uranium-235 to
the FBI. These charges can be made to
sound rather awful; in our present agitated
national state there is enough thunder here
for even a bush-league orator to mount any
platform and have himself a whale of a
half hour.
But the fact is that the fellowship now
in controversy had nothing to do with
secret information, and, as regards the
loss of material, the Commission appar-
ently had no reason to believe that any-
thing surreptitious was involved, and has,
in fact, recovered most of the missing
substances from wastes.
In terms of loss or danger to the public,
both incidents weigh very little. The hulla-
balloo that is being raised about them is
all in terms of potentials, of what would
happen to us if the Commission were blithely
to put Communists into positions con-
cerned with secret data, or if it were to go
gamboling over the fields of May, scatter-
ing Uranium-235 out of a basket, while sing-
ing a song of spring.
- * *
Commission has any such intentions,
that it has any partiality for Communists,
or that it plans to station agents on street
corners to give out uranium samples. It is
true that a smoother, slicker operator than
Mr. Lilienthal, one who was more concerned
about getting along with the important
people, would have hesitated about letting
the Commission get involved in the fellow-
ship incident.
There are thousands of such smoothies
around, but"the question for us is whether
their sometimes smug circumspection is
as valuable to us as Mr. Lilienthal's anx-
ious effort to reconcile the conflicting
claims of freedom and security, to strike
a balance between the demands of the
atomic age, and the traditions of free
scientific inquiry.
We can get any number of executives who
will give us dull conformity but it seems to
me that that nation is fortunate which finds
a man who combines a sense of duty with
a passion of freedom, and who tries, in his
own thinking, fairly to resolve the conflict
between the uncertain atomic present and
the great American past.
T HE CASE against Mr. Lilienthal boils
down, in a sense, to the complaint that
he has been trying to deal with the whole
problem, with the questions of what we are,
what kind of a country we are, along with

the questions of .what we have, what we
own. It would be much easier for Mr. Lili-
enthal if he were simply to leave out and
disregard the awkward positions of this
problem. But he is not the kind of man
who can take the easy way. If we want
such a man we can, as I say, readily find
But the question, as remarked at the
beginning, is that of the future of the
American spirit. It is the question of
whether we are going to keep alive the
cool daring, the moral courage, the re-
spect for traditional rights, which have
made us great, or whether we are going
to plump, whole-hog, for a kind of security
state, in which we will depend for our
safety entirely on police work, the well-
closed door, the mounted guard.
I believe Mr. Lilienthal is man enough
and executive enough to be able to keep the
greater questions alive, while seeing that
no danger comes to us. To those who, from
whatever motives of high patriotic anxiety,
urge the other course, the course of a me-
chanical approach to security, I would like
to suggest that under such an approach we
are likely to lose just as much uranium
as we are ever going to lose under Mr.
Lilienthal, and, in addition, we are likely to
lose our way, to lose ourselves, to lose, in
some degree, the lights by which we have
always steered.

WASN'T the timing of those
raids admirable? Who ever
would have thought of having
them just before the end of
school? Pre-exam tension: surely
the party will tend to be damp.
Everyone is immersed inj
cramming, so there will be no time
for a mass student protest against
such high-handed methods. And
just think: only half-a-dozen
issues of The Daily left to go!
By the time the alumni find out,
or the students can meet to talk
it over, and-Heaven forbid!-or-
ganize, vacation will be here.
Run along now, children, and

all about it!

believe that such a body would
be well received by the governor.

lection; it was kept in one of the
League offices and provided with
an elaborate card-file index. The
scope of the collection is unbe-
lievable, so I'll not describe it. I
am sure, however, it would take
many months to play it all
through once, even at the rate of
six hours a day.
This music was much to me in
my pre-war days here, and was
perhaps the hardest of all things
to leave behind. When I returned
it was still being played four hours
a day, but little by little the time
was cut to where now there exists,
as I am told, a "concert" each
Sunday evening at eight.
This last bit of information I
had great difficulty prying from
an attendant at the League desk,
and I was afraid to ask if men
could attend.
Today I'm sure many students
are not even aware of these facts.
I wish here to call it to their at-
tention. At Yale University the
same set of records is kept in the
Music School, where any student
may check out an album like a
library book and play it in one
of the rooms provided for that
purpose. At Michigan it is cae-
fully preserved, as for posterity.
If the League is so occupied with
grandmaternal and alumnistic ac-
tivities that it can find no time
and place to play this music, I
recommend it be removed to a
more suitable spot on campus,
and somehow made audible. We
have a great treasure in our midst,
but a treasure in a hole in the
ground is just no treasure at all.

To the Editor:
IN A RECENT editorial defend-
ing the Supreme Court ruling
in the Terminiello Cae, Miss
Friedman remained consistent in
her advocacy of absolute freedom
of speech, but appeared somewhat
inconsistent in light of her strong
fight against discrimination. Can
Miss Friedman with one stroke
coidemn discriminatory clauses,
which,- although perhaps unde-
sirable in spirit, nevertheless in no
way deprive any citizen of lawful
rights, and at another uphold the
right of a man to actively and ef-
fectively incite violence against a
minority group, in this case the
Jews? According to this, since
Terminiellos words incited a mob
to violence, a man who stirs up a
mob so that they lynch a Negro
or smash in the store of a Jew
is all right as long as this man
does not join a secret society
which might bar membership of
one or the other. If one were to
carry this line of reasoning to its
logical, if admittedly ridiculous
conclusion, one might argue thus:
If a man is not guilty of disorderly
conduct when he stirs a mob to
the same, then a man should not
be guilty of murder simply be-
cause he arouses men to murder
or pays men to murder. I'm sure
Gerald L. K. Smith, Father
Coughlin as well as Father Ter-
miniello were well pleased with the
decision. Miss Friedman, your
company is showing.
-Mort Eldridge.

Best Weapon

ABOR IS SLOWLY realizing that it no
longer holds the powerful place in strike
bargaining that it has for the past decade.
By calling for arbitration of the three-
week-old Ford stalemate, the UAW shows
that it understands that the days of
months-long deadlocks between labor and
management are gone.
Double Indemnity
LLOYDS OF LONDON has a new insur-
ance policy for golfers.

Because of high wages many factory men
have felt a strong security. They have felt
that they could afford to lose time from
work in strike debates.
This attitude was clearly demonstrated
to me at a spontaneous union meeting in
a Chrysler plant last summer. A squabble
had arisen over a line speed up in one of
the shops. The union steward told the
men that the company was ready to talk
the matter over, and he seemed inclined
to this method of settlement.
