ThIOMAS L. STOKES:
'isionaries'
WASHINGTON-It is the babbit - or
fashion - in some quarters in this
critical hydrogen bomb era to use the terms
"fuzzy-minded," "idealistic," "sentimental,"
"visionary," and "impractical" about those
among us who are asking that something
a bit out of the routine be done to get peace
in the world.
These latter folks, however, are patient
and long-suffering and don't seem to mind
the catalogue of epithets from the "rea-
lists;" to pluralize William Lloyd Garrison,
they "will be heard."
As a matter of fact, they are being heard
here and elsewhere in the world already, as
eyident in the slight yielding in the area of
the State Department on the problem of
international atomic energy control and in
the fact that, in England, the two major
political parties are vying with each other
in their election campaigns with proposals
to end the arms race and get an interna-
tional agreement. Winston Churchill spoke
out boldly. He knows a trend when he sees
it. Campaign speakers in England suddenly
woke up to this issue when, everywhere they
went, people began to ask anxiously about
the arms race and to demand that some-
thing be done about it. The same thing is
happening here.
It is really the only issue before the peo-
ple of the world today. If they can't settle
it, they can't settle anything.
IME SLIGHT YIELDING here, which came
only a few days after President Truman
seemed to slam the door shut, had to be
discovered in the usual delicate nuances of
diplomatic language, and yet it seemed to
be there very definitely to those whose busi-
ness it is to interpret such language. The
State Department spokesman in this in-
stance was, significantly, Assistant Secre-
tary of State John D. Hickerson, who is
the United States member of the United
Nations Atomic Energy Commission which
has wrestled unsuccessfully for so long with
the control problem.
While still strongly supporting the so-call-
ed Baruch Plan of international atomic en-
ergy control approved by the United Na-
tions General Assembly, he said this coun-
try is willing to sit down at any time and
talk with Soviet Russia and added "we are
prepared to examine sympathetically any
proposals aimed at reaching sincere agree-
ment and eliminating atomic weapons." The
explanation that this did not represent a
change in State Department policy was ac-
cepted as the usual cover for a slight dip-
lomatic retreat. Diplomats can never admit
a change of policy - or a mistake. It isn't
diplomatic.

MOST PEOPLE seem inclined to pass over
Representative Rankin's Monday attack
on Albert Einstein with a quick laugh.
The Mississippi Congressman called Ein-
stein a Communist, a faker, and said he
should have been deported long ago.
Everyone dismisses the affair with ease.
"Who ever pays any attention to what Ran-
kin blows off about anyway?" They accept
the old scientist as a great man, and pay
little heed to what they feel are the ravings
of a congressional crackpot.
The fact is that whatever may be a Con-
gressman's reputation in this country, he
may still be looked upon as a voice of the
American public by people overseas. To
them here is a representative of our people
calling a scientist, accepted by the world
as great, "an old fake." The Mississippian's
denunciation of Einstein as a Communist
because of his spreading "bunk" about
world organization can do much to harm
our standing abroad.
Rankin's fusillade, set off by Einstein's

speech Sunday, in which he demanded an
end to world arms races, is in effect an
attack on the right of the American people
to express themselves. If we were to deport,
or otherwise shut up, people who do not
agree directly with the government's line of
policy, who would be left?
Perhaps Einstein was over his head in
talking of world government. He was, how-
ever, giving his views as a member of the
American public. He, as most people with
little training in world affairs, left the
plans to the political 'scientists. He con-
tented himself with raising his voice to
show a need. And this is where the con-
sideration of the world's social needs
should arise-from the people.
Representative Rankin should not be by-
passed because of the stupidity of his re-
marks. He should be publicly rebuked by his
colleagues in government, the press and the
American people.

J-Hop--A Reply

NED HESS, 1950 J-Hop Chairman, has at-
tacked the validity of the facts and
opinions in my editorial entitled "J4Hop
Gravy Train."
However, as he should know, the facts
were checked by his own financial chair-
man.
Incidentally, Ned erred himself when he
said the Michigan State J-Hop is a one-
band, one-night affair. The MSC dance,
which cost students only $4.20, lasted two
nights (one of them formal and the other
semi-formal), 6000 persons attended and
L. D. Faunce, State's Councilor for Men, re-
ported that it worked out very, very well.
As for the conclusions in the editorial,
they were my own, but they have been en-
dorsed in full or in part by a number of
students on campus, including some mem-
bers of the J-Hop Committee and of Stu-
dent Legislature.
Hess said, in effect, that his committee
has done a fine job. Of course it has, and I
pointed this out. But how about past com-
mittees and committees of the future? They,
like Ned's group, have or will start out, in-
experienced, to administer a whopping big
business.
These committees, J-Hop or otherwise,
could benefit considerably from Student

Legislature assistance. SL should work with
the Dean's office in compiling addresses of
professional firms and reports from pre-
vious committees.
The Legislature could also speed up its at-
tempt to provide them with a portable
bandstand, and it could advance the date of
J-Hop elections.
Like Hess, I want to see J-Hop here at
Michigan remain a success, or as he puts it,
a "big and gala social weekend."
But, as he knows and as most students
don't know, several University officials
have suggested that, depending on stu-
dent opinion, the dance should possibly
be held one night only with attendance
necessarily limited largely to Juniors.
This move, which would change the whole
character of the dance, has been contem-
plated because of problems of late per-
mission and overall expense to students
which might hinder the success cf future
J-Hops.
Unless the student body shows a real in-
terest in ameliorating such shortcomiNys,
the University may well feel justified iit
suggesting that J-Hop be transforined. into
much less than the campus-wide affair it
is today.

To the Editor:
PERHAPS James Gregory's new
gospel would be acceptable to
more people if it were put in verse
form. The saga could be called
"New Voice, Shmoo Voice" or, in
a more grandiloquent manner,
"From Plymouth Rock to Ply-
mouth Hen". I offer the follow-
ing stanzas as an idea of what
such a work would possibly sound
like:
We keep on hearing a new
voice:
"Security is not alone
For those few fortunates who
own
A Lincoln, Maibach or Rolls-
Royce."'
We should be appreciative
That we once had initiative.
With our canoes we shot the
narrows,
The Indians shot at us with
arrows.
To Plymouth Rock the Pilgrims
went
(Escaping Labour's govern-
ment?)
The Pilgrims and the Puritans
Had never been securitans.
** *
In 1620, I surmise
We still enjoyed free. enterprise.
Some entrepreneurs dealt in
slaves-
They were no socialistic knaves.
* * *
The luckiest citizen is the man
Sitting under a Damocles'
sword;
For he is happy as a Lord
And feels as insecure as he can.
* *. .
If the government supported the
landlord
Instead of the price of eggs,
Things would be fine like a
grand lord,
And not on their very last legs.

Opportunity State . .
To the Editor:
H ang on to your hat; the battle
for an "Opportunity State"
has begun.
On Tuesday, Jim Gregory wrote
an outstanding editorial which ex-
plained the 1950 "Opportunity
State" platform of our University
Young Republican Club. He briefly
set forth portions of the positive
program and most certainly did a
fine job.
But that's only half of the story1
-the second part concerns the re-
buttal made by Democrat McNeil.
The latter's "Pointed Pen" must
have run out of ink, for there was

nothing but disorganized scratch-
ing in his attempt at refutation.
It was a fine example of blind
swinging at basic issues, with a
large amount of very false conclu-
sions drawn from taking phrases
out of the platform context.
Our "Opportunity State" plat-
form has thus far met with tre-
mendous success. As anmatter of
fact, response has been so over-
whelming that we have been forc-
ed to limit our distribution due to
lack of financial resources. %
We do believe that we have for-
mulated a sound program that
meets the basic issues of the day,
and as yet we have found noth-
ing to refute our belief in an "Op-
portunity State."
We will accept any invitation to
.publicly debate the merits of this
platform with any group that ac-
cepts our challenge.
-Dave Belin, President
U. of M. Young Republican Club
* * *
To the Editor:
HAVING READ the "Opportuni-
ty State" platform of the U.
of M. Young Republican Club, I
realize that Don McNeil is slightly
"off the track," in that this docu-
ment is a timely shot in the arm
for the Republican party and for
America.
If the measures proposed are
accepted, the United States will see
smoother administration with less
interference by government.
Long live the "Opportunity
State."

To the Editor:
RE: Mrs. Philpot-Dr. Sullen-
berger
The following points have been
implicit in the material concern-
ing the assault inflicted upon Mrs.
Louise Philpot by Dr. Neil H. Sul-
lenberger, 20 Jan. '50, at the Uni-
versity Hospital:
1-That Dr. Sullenberger did
act criminally by striking Mrs.
Philpot in the eye;
2-That he should be liable to
prosecution because of his action;
3-That while he has been
"fired" from the hospital, little
action has yet been taken to try
his for his crime.
Another point is that Mrs. Phil-
pot was cursed by Sullenberger;
not only she, but people of similar
ancestry. The exact words cannot
be included here.
CAN WE STAND BY AND LET
THESE WRONGS OCCUR WITH-
OUT ACTING ? ? ?

INTRUDER IN THE DUST, with David
Brian, Claude Jarman, Jr., and Juano
Hernandez.
USUALLY while reading a Faulkner story,
I feel my stomach going through emo-
tional exercises. This being the case, it is
not so much a plot I'm determined to fol-
low to its conclusion as a kind of irrational
series of emotions, looked at, it always seems,
just as irrationally by the people in tht
story. I admit that this is a kind of drama-
tic method, but when these subconscious
stirrings become cinematized in the film,
Intruder in the Dust, there seems to have
been much Faulknerian art lost.
The novel evolved chiefly through the
use of flashbacks; the film tells a pretty
straight story in which the subconscious
revelations of the novel fall by the way-
side.
A white boy (Claude Jarman) become
friendly with an elderly and noble Negro.
The Negro is indicted for the murder of a
white man. With the help of the boy's uncle

ONE OF THE PUBLICIZED advantages
of a large university over a small col-
lege is supposed to be the extensive variety
of courses and expert professors which the

he is acquitttd, the murderer found. These
are the bones of the story. We also get a
pretty good idea of how a Southerp lynching
works - it being many times a rather gro-
tesque social event.
To me the most interesting things about
the film were: 1-The use of sound; and,
2-the photography. Quiet (there is no
score) is exploited so that the sound of
feet, the sibilance (a Faulkner word) of
foliage, the creaking of floors and rocking
chairs becomes obviously, though unsuccess-
fully, important. Photography - it is many
times like the realism of Hopper and Wood
- is done in weak light, and one is overly
conscious of much blending and shadow.
These attempts to make up for the lack of
psychological atmosphere were interesting
enough, but like the film they were un-
successful.
-S. J. Winebaum.
"The writers against religion, whilst they
oppose every system, are wisely careful
never to set up any of their own."
