JEFFERSON MILITARY College has sacri-
ficed its right to be called an institution
'f learning.
For an endowment of $50 million, this
school has agreed to teach "the true prin-
ciples of Jeffersonian democracy and the
superiority of the Anglo-Saxon and Latin
American races."
This action, so contrary to everything that
Jefferson stood for, seriously jeopardizes the
nation's prestige in the eyes of the world.
Jefferson College's new charter certainly
will not make a favorable impression on

bulwark against Communism in the Far
Russian propagandists will use the Jeffer-
sonian incident as effectively among the
satellites as they did the story of Forrestal's
suicide when they claimed he typified Amer-

Even more seriou,. than the opinions of
foreign powers is the very fact that such
an incident occurred in a nation that has
professed to struggle against discrimina-
tion, and is still suffering from the effects
of a war against exactly this kind of

Washington Merry-Go-Round

WASHINGTON - U.S. diplomats from the
iron curtain countries meeting in Lon-
don this week had before them conclusive
evidence that Stalin now plans a showdown
with Tito. The showdown will be under-
taken, as far as possible 'without leading to
war, but if war is necessary the Kremlin has
decided to risk it.
Here are the factors which led American
diplomats to this conclusion.
1-Tito's nose-thumbing at the Kremlin
has become contagious. Other satellite coun-
tries are figuring that if Yugoslavia can get
away with it, they can too. Tito, once trained
as an NKVD agent, has sent his own agents
out to work against Moscow in Hungary,
Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Roumania.
2-The end of the Greek civil war was
not because the guerrillas were defeated, but
to rest them for an attack on Tito. Seven
thousand Greek guerrillas already have been
transferred to Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia
to get reequipped.
3-A brigade of the East German People's
Police has been sent from Berlin to Bul-
garia. They were previously trained in Yugo-
slovakia during the German occupation,
know how to fight Tito.
4-One attack on Tito has already taken

Yugoslav papers. The U.S. embassy reported
that Russian guerrillas crossed from Hun-

* * *
WHAT THE KREMLIN is banking on is
the belief that the United States is not
ready to risk war, will not intervene to help
Tito. This is based partly on U.S. isolation-
ism, partly on Moscow's plan to disguise the
Tito attack as an internal revolt.
Thus the main problem confronting
American diplomats has become: How to
head off war by telling the Kremlin we
would fight-though the final decision ac-
tually lies with Congress.
Hitler never would have invaded the Ruhr
if he thought the French would have fought.
He guessed right. France wouldn't fight at
that time.
Again Hitler figured that the western allies
woull not fight if he invaded Austria, then
Czechoslovakia. Again he guessed right. They
didn't fight.
By that time Hitler was getting brash
and bloodthirsty. Perhaps he might not
have invaded Poland if he had thought the
British would fight. In any event, he
guessed wrong, and World War II began.
The situation may be the same regarding
Yugoslavia. Its invasion may be a stepping-
stone to Greece, Turkey, Suez, Africa, India.
We may not fight at first, but eventually
we will. So the state department figures it
is better to be firm at first and let the
Kremlin know exactly where we stand. That
is what American diplomats faced this week
in London.
THE NAVY has got itself into more polit-
ical hot water-this time in the blue and
sleepy waters of the Caribbean. The gov-
ernor of Puerto Rico, Luis Munoz Marin, is
so sore that he has decided to ask the recall
of Adm. Dan Barbey, commander of the
Caribbean Sea Frontier.
What happened was that the U.S.A.,
while preaching democracy for France,
Italy and the North Atlantic Pact coun-
tries, let the Navy play footsie with one of
the bloodiest dictators in all Latin Amer-
ica-President Trujillo of the Dominican
Just as Adm. Richard Conolly got some
U.S. diplomats sore by making a special cour-
tesy cruise to visit Dictator Franco in Spain,
so Admiral Barbey made a special courtesy
call on Trujillo. Furthermore, he did so
after Governor Munoz Marin had strongly
advised against it.
He pointed out to Admiral Barbey that
Dictator Trujillo had slaughtered hundreds
of Haitians, had instituted a reign of ter-
ror, and that if the United States really
believed in the democracy it talked about,
so also should its Navy.
On top of it all, Admiral Barbey has gone
on the radio to denounce Governor Maria
and his land-use policies, with the result
that Marin has now decided to ask for the
admiral's recall.

At Hill Auditorium ..
PYGMALION, with Leslie Howard, and
Wendy Hiller.
ONE OF BERNARD Shaw's finest comedies
comes to the screen replete with the
wit, social satire and farcical situations char-
acteristic of the Irish genius. The film ver-
sion of "Pygmalion" is an almost perfect
adaptation of the play, and in addition
boasts the talents of Leslie Howard and
Wendy Hiller at their acclaimed best.
Howard, as the Shavian equivalent of

Pygmalion, the sculptor who fell in love
with his own statue and brought it to
life, is saturnine and erratic in just the
right measure. The cockney-tongued Miss
Hiller, remade into a lady by Howard's
efforts and her own will, is a superb ac-
tressand a beautiful woman.
Many of the characters are mere projec-
tions of Shaw's ego, but he gives them such
provocative things to say, that it doesn't
really matter. However, unfortunately, some
of the most piquant remarks on the social
caste system, made by the heroine's dust-
collector father, have been left out of the
Eliza's entrance into polite society, af-
ter she has mastered excellent pronun-
ciation, but is still limited in diction to her
gutter language is easily one of the clev-
erest episodes recorded on celluloid. It
is in scenes such as this that Shaw says
what he has to say about social customs,
rather than in the kind of sermonizing
which is injected in some of his plays.

trayed on the screen, and clever photography

W ASHINGTON-Very few people realize
as yet, what a staggering deficit the
next federal budget is likely to show, even
after the gizzard has been cut out of the
American defense program. Present fore-
casts are, in fact, that expenditure will out-
run revenue by at least $5,000,000,000 and
perhaps by $7,000,000,000.
In order to keep the deficit within
limits, President Truman has not only or-
dered the weakening of this country's de-
fenses, he has also made stringent cuts
in the special types of outlay, like rivers
and harbors, which are beloved by Con-
gress. Even so, as matters now stand, he
will almost certainly ask Congress to spend
$42,500,000,000 or a little more. And since
Congress is always generous in an elec-
tion year, many of the President's requests
are likely to be exceeded rather than re-
Obviously, the expectatioV of such a deficit
poses a massive problem of national policy.
Unfortunately, however, the Truman admin-
istration contains no economic high com-
mEid capable of solving such problems. Thus
instead of a real national policy for dealing
with the deficit, it is only possible to report
the existing conflicts of view.
'H EHARD-PRESSED Indians of the Nav-
ajo and Hopi tribes must wait a while
longer for the economic assistance that
everyone seems to agree is their due. A bill
to establish a 10-year rehabilitation pro-
gram on their reservation has been vetoed
by President Truman, acting on the advice
of the Navajo Tribal Council.
While much of the land assigned to
these tribes is desert waste, it does include
resources that are coveted by some of
their white neighbors. Among these are
water rights, vital to the growing of crops
in that region. These and other rights
of the Indians are now under federal and
tribal jurisdiction. The bill enacted by
Congress would have subjected the Indians
to the laws of their respective states--
Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. Thus
there was great concern among the In-
dians and their friends lest the white ma-
jnrities of the three states might manag6

ON THE ONE HAND, each succeeding year
of federal budgetary unbalance has
added to the fervor, and somewhat increased
the strength of the administration's "econ-
omizers." They are still plugging for sharp
cuts in spending, particularly in the foreign
and defense fields. And some of them are
also urging tax increases. Two obstacles con-
front them, however.
First, the President is not yet ready to
hurl his entire foreign and defense policy
into the discard, which in turn means that
he has had to accept the necessity of the
federal deficit of at least $5,000,000,000 men-
tioned above.
Second, no conceivable program of tax in-
creases that Truman can propose and force
through Congress, will ever raise enough
money to meet this entire deficit. Thus the
gap between income and outgo may possibly
be narrowed, but the administration econ-
omizers can never give effect to their real
policy, which is to balance the budget.
*' * *
ON THE OTHER HAND, although the
phrase "crackpot New Dealers" is now-
adays used with a straight face at the White
House, the Truman administration still con-
tains a few of this vanishing species, who
strongly oppose the economizers.
This is because the surviving Keyne-
sians hold that the country is in a mildly
recessionary situation, with unemploy-
ment growing gradually. They hold fur-
ther that this situation can be rendered
considerably more acute, either by such
external factors as prolongation of the
steel strike, or by unwise tax and economy
A new goal of a national product of
$300,000,000,000, and a budget balanced by
the vast increases in tax revenue that result
from vast increases in national income, are
currently being talked about by these men,
as the antidote to the program of the econ-
The President may be expected to jibe
the ship of state in this sort of direction,
if business really gets bad and joblessness
really spreads. Meanwhile, in effect, Tru-
man is steering neither the course recom-
mended by the Keynesians, nor the course
recommended by the economizers.

Servant of Two Masters
To the Editor:
WE ARE TAUGHT that when
we are given a present we
should say "Thank You." Then
out of courtesyandkgratitude may
I thank the cast and staff of "Ser-
vant of Two Masters" for the gift
of two and a half hours of gaiety
and enchantment. The production
this evening of Goldoni's comedy
must have been superior to even
the best efforts of the Commedia
dell' Arte and presented to the
audience not only one of the most
lighthearted evenings imaginable
but also a window into the past, an
evening in perhaps a courtyard in
18th century Italy, an insight into
Shakespearean comedy, the bed-
room farce of the 'Thirties,' and
even the comedy of the present
Broadway stage.
A double nod of gratitude to Dr.
Halstead, to Stan Challis whose
delight with the character of Truf-
faldino communicated itself to a
delighted audience, and a general
bow to the rest of the cast who
conclusively demonstrated the
truth of the adage that "there
are no small parts, only small ac-
tors." There are no small actors
in this play!
Thank you!

Communists ..
To the Editor:
IN YOUR STORY of the trial of
the Communists you stated that
a few faculty members wished to
comment on the outcome. I don't
know how many were asked, and
perhaps not many would feel com-
petent to judge the legal aspects
of the case.
However, a number I have
talked to believe that the trial
has served a very useful purpose
in bringing home to the American
people the nature of the early
phase of the fifth column strategy
of the Russian imperialprogram.
People in Roumania, Czechoslo-
vakia, Jugoslavia, and other coun-
tries know at close range the later
phases of this strategy.
If the trial had turned up a
cache of hand grenades and sub-
machine guns, I suppose the guilt
of the defendants would have been
unquestioned. But such strategy
is as obsolete as the cavalry
Americans have objected in no
uncertain terms to being ruled
from Rome, Berlin, or Tokyo.
Thanks to the Communist trials
and the publicity provided, Amer-
icans do not need to be ignorant
of the designs of Moscow, and the
strategy being employed to further
those designs.

High Cost of Living .. .
To the Editor:
WE HAVE NOTED with interest
the present controversy con-
cerning the claims that the A&P

is a cause of the HCL. In this re-
gard without trying to pass judg-
ment of the A&P, we should like
to point out that we believe there
is present in our midst another
cause of the HCL.
The reference is to the prices
charged by the local restaurateurs.
By some magic, not involving high
pr-iced help or ornate furnishings,
a local restaurant can transform
two pork chops and 15 cents
worth of potatoes, vegetables,
bread, and drink into $1.10; more-
over, following lower food prices
it can even raise this to $1.20. This
is a single instance but one need
go no further than the nearest
menu to find other examples of in-
significant initial food prices
transformed into rather consider-
able figures.
Inability to meet the prices
charged in Ann Arbor has doubt-
less kept many potential students
in the past from attending the
University. When the GI Bill dies
away, this will probably again be
felt. Generous donations for re-
search will mean much less if
promising students' careers are cut
short by HCL.
The time has come to get the
facts about HCL in Ann Arbor, if
profits of local food dealers are
improper, the full weight of public
influence should be exerted to re-
duce them. On the other hand if
the fault through some miracle is
not with the restaurateurs, this
should also be known.
It is therefore suggested that
the merchants be petitioned by the
Student Legislatureto open their
books to a committee of the Stu-
dent Legislature and that their
findings be made known. If the
local merchants are unwilling to
do so, a team of cost accountants
either as an exercise in the Bus-
iness Administration School or
hired by the Student Legislature
should be given the problem of
establishing what food costs should
be in Ann Arbor commensurate
with a proper amount of "wast-
age" and a decent profit. Let these
findings be open to rebuttal-but
let's find out the facts.
When we have cleaned out our
own backyard we can better judge
the A&P.

Splinter Groups .. .
To the Editor:
THE ANSWER to the dilemma
of the "splinter groups" work-
ing for world peace on this cam-
pus is not assimilation, but coop-
eration. Each group is perform-
ing a function, but in its own
sphere. What is needed is a proj-
ect or a program which will serve
to coordinate the activities of the
various groups.
The International Committee of
NSA, UNESCO, and UWF are now
working together on a project
which is open not only to "splinter
groups," but to all. Plans are
being made to hold a mock UN
Revisional Council hieeting here
at the University during spring
semester. Various mid-western col-
leges will send delegates to this
conference where the question of
revising the UN into a more ef-
fective organization will be dis-
cussed. Here is a concrete pro-
gram which needs the support of
all, which will satisfy the "needs

have the peculiar habit of knock-
