Third Labor Federation

D RAMA

SINCE THE eviction of the United Elec-
tric Workers and the Farm Equipment
Workers from the CIO, the members of
these unions have been faced with the
problem of whether to remain in the old or-
ganizations or join the new ones set up
by the CIO. The decision that the members
make can seriously effect all organized labor.
Problems of this type seldom worry the
union rank and file. Unless they need the
union to settle a problem which effects their
work directly, they take little interest in
union affairs.
However, the members have been forced
into this clash of ideologies on upper
union levels, as it demands that they
choose representatives at the bargaining
table.
Because this problem so seldom arises, it
is almost impossible to determine the way
that the member will turn. But obviously
if many workers choose to stick with the UE
and FE, a split will occur in the CIO. This
split can be widened if the CIO decides to
oust the remaining leftist unions.
Such a split led to the formation of
the CIO itself. A new split could lead to
the birth of a new labor federation.
This would create some big problems for
organized labor. As the new federation would
be set up on political grounds, a disruption

of the existing federations would result.
Leftist factions in right wing unions might
bolt these groups to join unions in the new
federation. A period of reorganization
would take place.
Aside from temporarily upsetting the
inner political unity of the present labor
federations, the new group would perma-
nently weaken labor's standing in national
politics. The new federation would no
doubt urge its members to go further left
than the Democratic Party. Votes might
be tossed towards the Progressives that
would ordinarily give support to the
Democrats.
The leftist leaders would profit the most
from a new federation. The ousted unions
would be more effective if organized into a
federation. A group of united unions would
also tend to draw some members to the
group who would ordinarily be hesitant to
leave their own unions to join those tossed
out of the CIO.
However, the CIO would also become
more united. It could not claim that its
prestige is weakened in the public eye
or at the bargaining table because of
leftist factions.
Management too ewould stand to gain.
It would know which unions are the elected
representatives of the workers with whom
to bargain.
For a while the new organization would
no doubt have to suffer a good deal of name
calling. But this would be offset by the ser-
vice that such a group could perform for
unions that still wish to serve their mem-
bers, and yet do not want to follow CIO
policy.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

AIM v. IFC- Two Views

ASSOCIATION OF Independent Men has
unfortunately accused fraternities of
general apathy regarding their charters'
discriminatory clauses and has blasted them
for tabling the elimination motion at the
recent IFC House Presidents' meeting.
By what justifiable right can an inde-
pendent body meddle in the affairs of,
or even attempt to influence the policies .
of affiliated groups?
AIM's statement that the motion failed
passage because of some IFC members' fear
it might "show something rotten in the
fraternity," and that its tabling is "highly
discouraging to students hoping that af-
filiates could cleanse themselves of these un-
democratic clauses" seems in need of con-
crete proof and disgustingly prejudiced.
And whether or not AIM has the right
to make such a statement, it has shown
poor judgment in doing so.
Anyway, for the past few months, it
seems to me that the entire discrimination
issue has been run into the ground through
gross mishandling, of the above sort.
Groups claiming that removal of bias
clauses is an issue affecting all the stu-
dents, affiliated or independent, have
failed all along to set up a common de-
nominator on which to act.
This denominator is each group's right
to do what it thinks best for itself. Through
inability on both AIM's and IFC's part to
realize this, the discrimination issue has
gradually become a tool with which, in my
opinion, both organizations hope to gain
more unwarranted prestige.
The bias clause problem should require
solution solely by the individual organiza-
tions; those with discriminatory clauses
and those without--it's their problem, no
one else's.
But above and beyond this. shortcoming,
AIM, in trying to break up fraternities'
solidarity is acting out of their jurisdiction
and adhering to a "give us an inch, we'll
take a mile" attitude.
-Don Kotite.

FOR MORE THAN a week now, IFC and
AIM have been obliging students and The
Daily with some choice blasts at each other
on the current discrimination issues, which
apparently will go on forever.
It is true, that fraternities (and let's not
forget the sororities) should do something
about removing discriminatory clauses from
their constitutions. But AIM claims IFC is'
procrastinating and IFC counters with "It's
none of AIM's business."
Both these views are wrong. It's every-
one's business when it comes to discrimi-
nation. IFC should get credit for its ac-
tion, but when the Council tabled its
resolution last week, their credit sank
mighty low. The fraternities are proving
themselves extremely narrow in their pro-
crastination, and it's time they realized
it. They wield more power than they rep-
resent, and for this reason they should
become more liberal.
A great many students are interested in
fraternities, whether they belong to one or
not, and have a right as University stu-
dents to make the fraternities, also a part
of the University, see the light and cooperate
rather than squabble with other organiza-
tions.
The Association of Independent Men
should be commended for prodding IFC into
action, but their approach is entirely nega-
tive. It is their business to see that discri-
mination clauses go, but they have no busi-
ness calling IFC names and raising a big
hullabaloo.
The fight against discrimination is an
educational process, and everyone should
be educated. Already SL, reasonably rep-
resentative of the students, has the Michi-
gan Plan, which is an educational ap-
proach to the matter.
Both IFC and AIM should continue the
anti-discrimination work, but cooperate
with everyone who is willing to help,
whether affiliated, independent, or just a
scholar trying to get an education.
-Peter Hotton.

MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL by T. S.
Eliot, with Len Rosenson as St. Thomas a
Becket.
" AND GOD SAW that it was good .
And the people and the audience saw
that it was good. And the play was so true,
that when it was done, it sounded odd-
sitting there in the church-to give the well-
earned applause.
As produced by the Inter-Arts Union in
St. Andrews Episcopal Church, and direct-
ed by Dana Elcar, Eliot's dramatization of'
the murder of Thomas a Becket is both
understanding and understandable.
Setting the mood for this modern morality
play-replete with Greek chorus-was the
church itself; Ed Chudacoff's effectively ar-
chaic-sounding music, and the halo-ed ef-
fects of the lighting crew.
But most of the credit for the success of
the play must go to Len Rosenson's richly
mature portrayal of Becket. Rosenson cap-
tured all the warmth, quiet strength, and
passion of the martyr, keeping him a man
throughout.
Briefly, the play deals with Becket's
return to England after a seven year exile
caused by his power-of-the-church vs.
the-power- of -the- state argument with
Henry VIII. He knows he will be killed;
resists a series of temptations by personi-
fications of Pleasure, Power and Glory
through Usurptation, Compromise, and
Pseudo-Saintliness, and decides'on a mar-
tyr's death.
He preaches a sermon on martyrdom, and
after he is killed, his four knight assasins
come forward to state the case of history
and Henry VIII. And so Eliot leaves you,
sympathizing with Becket, but understand-
ing his almost necessary demise.
-Phoebe S. Feldman
CIINIEM-A
At Lydia Mendelssohn
HARVEST, with Fernandel, Orane De-
mazis, and Gabriel Gabrio.
THE WHOLESOME simplicity of "Har-
vest" which will endear the film to some
movie-goers will undoubtedly make it bo.'
ing to others. There is something refreshing,
however, in this French story of "a man,
a woman and the soil" which makes you
want to overlook the unlikely elements of
the film and its weak beginning.
"Harvest" is about as uncomplicated
as a movie' can be and still hold the
audience's interest. Marcel Pagnol, who
directed the film, achieves this with his
usual blend of warmly human characteri-
zations and French common sense. You.
can't help feeling that you are seeing the
real people of France on the screen, not
tinsel and celluloid figments of some hack
script-writer's imagination.
With actors such as Fernandel, Miss De-
mazis and Gabrio taking over the main
roles, rich characterizations are assured.
This despite the fact that Fernandel's role
seems forced into the picture simply be-
cause he is such a superb performer. Ac-
tually, his part in the plot is extraneous,
and in the hands of someone else could have
been considerably cut.
Reverence for the products of the soil
and the work of men's hands is a recurrent
theme throughout "Harvest." These days
when ulterior motives, illicit love affairs
and psyches twisted by the complications of
our civilization dominate the screen, it '
good to find a pitcure which claims tht
there are some people who find their rea-
son for existence in work and making an-
other person happy.

Elections .. .
To the Editor:
SINCE ONE candidate for the
Board in Control of Student
Publications has commented on
the Board election in these col-
ums and has requested comments
on his statements, I should like to
oblige him with a brief reply.
As a member of the Board in
Control of Student Publications
for two years and as a candidate
for a third term, I find the under-
lying implications of his remarks
very disturbing.
He begins with an accurate
statement of the Board's policy
that no student member of the
board can also be a staff member
of any of the publications.
From that modest beginning he
jumps to the conclusion that for-
mer members of the publications
staff should be eliminated from
the Board. He hypothesizes that
at the time the board was estab-
lished "it was felt" (by some un-
explained person or persons) that
an impartial, experienced, and un-
obligated administration could best
be provided by students who were
experienced in the field of campus
journalism and yet did not have
any close direct contact with the
publications staffs."
In seeking to determine why he
came to this conclusion I discov-
ered from his campaign literature
that this gentleman alone seems to
possess those qualifications of
campus publication experience
elsewhere but no direct contact
here. I wonder if his imputation
that his own views are or were the
policy conclusions of an organi-
zation of which he is not a mem-
ber is an example of his experi-
ence with campus journalism.
That he might be wrong could be
inferred from the fact that for the
past three years at least two of
the three student representatives
have been former publications
people, while two years ago that
was true of all three student rep-
resentatives.
More serious, perhaps, is the
statement in this candidate's cam-
paign literature which indicates
that he stands for unbiased inter-
ested and accurate representation
of student opinions and tastes in
student publications.
I am not aware, nor do I believe
are the other members of the
Board, that the Board's function is
to censor or control the opinions
or tastes evidenced in any of the
student publications. Our policy
has been to encourage every inter-
ested student to work on the pub-
lications, subject to a standard
professional code of ethics rather
than the tastes and opinions or
the Board members.
As one who believes in freedom
of the press on the University cam-
pus, I find this candidate's philos-
ophy most disturbing.
-Tom Walsh

To the Editor:
A CANDIDATE, in the Letters to
the Editor column yesterday,
made two statements which de-
serve comment.
First, he states that staff mem-
bers of the three publications are
not permitted to be candidates for
the Board in Control of Student
Publications. He reasons that the
practice is a wise one because it
would eliminate "persons from the
Board who because of contacts, as-
sociations and experience would be
less able to discover and correct
the faults of the publications."
The statement is fact but the
reasoning which follows is faulty.
The main function of the Board is
to act on financial problems of the
three publications. Certainly an
experienced person would be in
better position to vote intelligently
on these matters. Proof of this

can be found in the old system of
nominating candidates for the
Board.
It was only a few years ago that
the Board nominated candidates
and they were almost always ex-
staffers of the publications. In the
past, the most outstanding work
on the Board was accomplished by
men with publication experience-
men who knew The Daily, Gar-
goyle and 'Ensian.
An function of the Board is the
approval of all junior and senior
staff appointments. It is obvious
that a person with no publication
experience would not be in good
position to vote on these appoint-
ments. A Board member who
knows the applicants for junior
and senior staff positions would
have complete knowledge of their
qualifications and would be able
to vote with confidence on the ap-
pointments.
Secondly, the candidate states
that the provision which forbids
staff members from running for
the Board "has been neatly cir-

as sports editor last year and co-
managing editor of The Daily
this past summer, I was gradu-
ated. Since then, I have written a
few articles as a GUEST colum-
nist. Those columns were solicited
by The Daily. But I have not been
a member of The Daily staff this
semester and have not resigned to
run for the Board, since there was
no position to resign.

To the Editor:
THERE HAS recently been dis-
cussion concerning the policy
that members of the staff of a
student publication may not be
candidates for the Board in Con-
trol. As has been stated, "... .The
purpose was to provide IMPAR-
TIAL, EXPERIENCED, and UN-
OBLIGATED administration for
the University student publica-
tions."
As a former publications staff
member, my position is this:
1-IMPARTIAL-I am not af-
filiated with any publication to be
published for the remainder of the
school year.
2-EXPERIENCED - My ex-
perience on the 'Ensian and Direc-
tory staffs was obtained over the
last three years. The value of this
experience can be shown by the
summer and fall directories which
I edited this year. The sale date
was earlier, the price was lower,
and accuracy and general service-
ability to students better than it
has been in ten years.
3-UNOBLIGATED-I am u V-
obligated to all present publica-
tions staff members. In fact, they
will vouch that I have always been
constructively critical of all pub-
lications.
If my candidacy, or that of any
other candidate, conflicts with
either the word or intent of the
policy, I would be surprised to
know how.

Trouble-Makers . .
To the Editor:
MONDAY NIGHT the East
Quadrangle made an admir-
able forward step toward stimulat-
ing student interest in the forth-
coming campus election. A siza-
ble group of candidates, making
bids for SL, J-Hop, BCSP, and the
Athletic Board, briefly presented
their qualifications and platforms
to an appallingly small group of
prospective supporters. The meet-
ing progressed rapidly and intelli-
gently until the question period
was called.
Among the issues thrown out for
discussion were the inevitable dis-
crimination question, the liquor
ban, and the problem of whether
or not a candidate's residential or
social affiliations should loom
highein the voter's mind. Although
there was much democratic and in-
telligent give-and-take during this
session, the discussion was greatly
impeded by the presence of cer-
tain obnoxious trouble-makers.
These vociferous crusaders
characterized themselves as a
group by sarcasm, interruption,
knowing winks, irrelevant jabber,
and lack of knowledge. The fol-
lower of campus politics must by
now be aware that there were YP's
present at this particular East
Quad meeting.
Now, it is only the nightmare-
stricken patriot who would sug-
gest that these harmless . little
eels receive their commands from
the Daily Worker.'But the YP's
are certainly doing their utmost
to convey that impression to the
more calm individuals on campus
Their methods of argument cannot
fail to make the listener see Red.
Although the candidates under
fire at this caucus were patient
and logical in their cool responses,
owing to constant interruptions,

the time element played its part in
not permitting these office-seekers
to clarify and substantiate their
views as fully as might have been
desired.
The YP's certainly uphold a va-
riety of worthwhile ideals. It is,
however, confusing to note 'the
methods by which they support
them and consequently hinder
their realization.
In regard to discrimination,
which seems to be this blundering
organization's primary enemy
now, it has been said that those
who make a fetish out of toler-
ance are often the most intolerant.
Furthermore, picketing the gover-
nor of our state does not seem to
us to have any relation to the so-
lution of Michigan's problems:
Perhaps Mr. MacDougall might do
well to inform us and the other
"reactionaries" on campus just
how he and his glamourous, torch-
bearing coterie of followers are
ever going to achieve their excel-
lent goals through their present

LOS ANGELES - It looks like Jimmy
Roosevelt is definitely coming into his
own.
Once a callow youth, floundering under
the weight of a famous name, Jimmy dealt
with almost anybody who came along. At
one time he was the political pal of Mayor
James Curley of Boston. Another time his
life insurance sales to George Washington
Hill of the American Tobacco Company
didn't help the Roosevelt family.
However, Jimmie is 42 now, and the
years have done something to him. He
has excellent political judgment. He is
careful about friends. And most impor-
tant of all, he is now able to chart a
straight political course. Jimmy knows
what he wants and goes after it.
One of the most interesting develop-
ments about Jimmy Roosevelt is the group
of youngsters around him. It is reminiscent
of the young democrats of his father's day,
the young people who would fight and die
politically to defend the name of Roosevelt.
Those young Democrats of 1933 have now
put on age, in some cases mould and crust.
But a new generation has come along in
California and their adoration of Jimmy
Roosevelt is probably greater than that
n nnn ivn ii .r

the political boss of Chicago; Senator Doug-
las of Illinois and various others. His peeve
against Jimmy Roosevelt probably results
not so much from the Eisenhower incident
but from his jealousy for all things Roose-
veltian.

ADM. SHERMAN SHOWS SPUNK
ON THE WEST COAST, where the ad-
mirals first hatched their revolt, things
are a lot different now that Adm. Forrest
Sherman has taken over the Navy helm. He's
steering a steady course and rebellious ad-
mirals are climbing back aboard.
. Sherman's policy is friendly but firm.
He demonstrated that he could use an iron
hand not only by abolishing operation 23,
the Navy propaganda unit, but by crack-
ing down on another Navy propaganda
nest at Pensacola, Fla.
Though Sherman had been smeared by
his fellow admirals as a "Quisling," he didn't
barge into his new office swinging the ax.
He started by "going to school," and calling
in each bureau chief to bring him up to date
on naval affairs. Result: peace and order
is beginning to come back to the armed
forces.
LUCAS' LEADERSHIP
L ---.! .. _ _ . -. _a

THE RECITAL last night in Hill audi-
torium, presented by Italo Tajo, bass-
baritone of the Metropolitan Opera, was a
disappointing experience for those in the
audience who have enjoyed the artistry aiid
high grade vocalism of his recorded music.
His singing was extremely erratic, ranging
from excellent to very poor indeed.
Tajo possesses a good voice, well trained
and flexible. Its quality is rather dry, and
he is handitapped by a limited range and
inconsiderable volume. The tones of the
middle register, which he did not have.-to-
force, were not only more pleasing in quality
but free of the flatting so evident at the
extremes of his range.
The soloist posed a problem for himself
by opening the program with three Mozart
numbers, in which he had to plunge im-
mediately into the heaviest portion of the
recital. Surprisingly, this was also the best
portion. In the first two numbers he did
the best singing, was the most artistic and
the most intelligent, and did a splendid job
with dramatic projection.
With only a few exceptions, the rest of
the recital was a disappointment. The de-
cisive numbers were convincing and in good
taste, and "The Truth is Suspected" by
