WHAT IS DIFFICULT to understand in
the current controversy about "so-
cialism," the "welfare state," and "security,"
is why these should be picked out by con-
servatives as terms of abuse. A Daily edi-
torialist has deplored the "new" voice call-
ing for security, and a number of people
seem ready to agree with him. Political cam-
paigns have been conducted-and lost-in
opposition to the "welfare state." The sur-
est way to beat government health insur-
ance appears to the American Medical As-
sociation to be to blast it as "socialized."
The reason for this frantic and futile
flow of words must be a vast deception:
conservatives must believe that by calling
something "socialism" they can get peo-
ple to vote against it without another
thought, and that by yelling against "se-
curity" they can persuade people not to
want it-as if a school child could be
taught to dislike chocolate merely through
the teacher's scowling repetition of the
word for it.
Apparently the more rabid American con-
servative doesn't understand language any
better than he understands politics--and it
is becoming increasingly clear that he can't
tell the ordinary voter from the great auk.
ILLUSTRATE this, try the old and
somewhat unfair trick of substituting
the word "blab" for every meaningless ab-
straction and propaganda phrase in a con-
servative's argument. For example, in that
recent editorial about the "new" voice, the
following paragraph occurs:
"Where is the daring that braved a stormy
sea even unto Plymouth? The courage that
defied Indian arrows? The initiative that
built a nation where there had only been
an idea?" Which being translated means:
Where is the blab that braved a stormy
sea even unto Plymouth? The blab that
defied Indian arrows? The blab that built
a nation where there had only been a
"They are still among us," the editorial
concludes, "if we will only look for them."'
But where are the "snows" of yesteryear?

TWash I OtIe"Of
WASHINGTON -President Truman at-
tended a private birthday luncheon
for Speaker Sam Rayburn last week at
which he presented Sam with a new hat.
"Sam is the only man I know," comment-
ed the President, "who could stay in Wash-
ington over 40 years and still wear the same
size hat he wore when he came here. I
don't know what kind of a hat this is,"
Truman continued, "but I'll show you how
to fix it."
Showing he hadn't lost his touch as a
haberdasher, Truman flipped the hat into
shape and planted it ceremoniously on
Rayburn's head. As the guests roared,
Rayburn yanked it down over his ears.
The President also kidded Rayburn about
his age.
"Vice President Barkley tells me when hej
was a kid, he used to listen to Sam on the
lecture platform," Truman confided. "But,
in view of Barkley's known age, I'll be

damned if I can understand how Sam can
be just 68.""
THE HOUSE Small Business Committee
will dish out some unsavory, but im-
portant, facts on the alarming growth of
monopoly in a forthcoming report to Con-
gress. The committee, headed by spade-call-
ing Rep. Wright Patman of Texas, will say
in part:
"If monopoly continues at the present
rate, either the giant corporations will
control all our markets, the greatest share
of our wealth, and eventually our govern-
ment, or the government will be forced to
intervene with some form of direct regu-
lation of business.
"Either choice is inimical to those who
believe in the American system of democrat-
ic government and free enterprise."
The committee will recommend a com-
plete overhauling of the Federal Trade Com-
mission, charging that the FTC has not
given adequate protection to little business
men trying to compete with big monopolies.
Perhaps more important, the Patman
report will recommend these changes in
the antitrust laws:
1-A p. ovision barring corporation offi-
cials convicted of monopolistic practices
from resuming their jobs for a specified
period after the conviction.
2-A provision that the United States, as
well as private individuals, may bring treble-
damage actions for violations of the anti-

Truman's Budget Deficit

"And Ihis Corer -

PRESIDENT TRUMAN has termed his
proposed budget for 1951 "a solid base
for moving toward budgetary, balance in the
next few years." And yet he would launch us
off on a program of Federal welfare and
defense spending which will increase our
already gigantic national debt by $5,133,000.
Unquestionably the United States is


HrIE MUSEUM OF ART in Alumni Me-
morial Hall is displaying throughout this
month a selection of the recent accessions
to its permanent collection. It can point
with an excusable pride. Director Jean Paul
Slusser has been able to secure prints of the
highest quality, representing almost all of
the outstanding artists of our century, as
well as notable 19th century and Baroque
He has thus neatly avoided the pitfalls
of so many small American museums that
have grabbed at anything as long as it
was in oil. As a result, they have to be
satisfied with the work of lesser artists,
executed with less technique, demonstrat-
ing less imagination and purchaseable for
less money.
By way of contrast, take Pablo Picasso's
etching and aquatint of the Dream and Lie
of Francisco Franco. Here the observer may
learn not only the aspects of curvilinear
cubism from its greatest exponent, and
surrealism in its most brutal form, but a
political and sociological satire, whose weird
and tortured violence is equalled only by
Several superb etchings by Georges Rou-
ault convey the rich intensity of his religious
spirit in terms that reach across seven cen-
turies and bind two widely distant eras.
And all the fruit-like softness of a Renoir
nude appears before us in one small precious
lithograph to recall a manner of living and
thinking in an era when no one was really
old enough to remember the familiar crea-
ture we now call total wa.
In a period when the word "France" has
often been considered interchangeable with
the word "art" it is refreshing to see ull
position given to the bumper harvest of
outstanding work that appeared in Republi-
can Germany before Hitler surpressed it.
The latent barbaric violence of the German
people erupted into the expressionist move-
ment, where it produced such feverish beau-
ty as Ernst Kirchner's "Head of a Woman,"
or Erich Heckel's "Prisoner." Even the
woodcuts of "Dancers" of Christian Rohlfs,
or the timid girl called "Native" by Otto
Mueller show a certain harshness interbred
with grace. Such works, so natural and so
spontaneous, tell us how thin was the veneer
of classical thought that Germany received
so late.
Two pieces of sculpture have been de-
liberately selected to make a striking con-
trast. Hans Arp's "pre-Adamic fruit" is
the ulitmate in abstraction. It is simply a
bronze amorphous shape from which three
protruberances push slowly and indeci-
sively outward. There is no story to it, or
if there is, it is not necessary to its enjoy-
ment. By contrast, the plaster of John
Roger's "Checkers Up at the Farm" (1859)
is about as realistic as sculpture can go;
no button or wrinkle is missing. Its aes-
thetic value (if it can be said to have any)
is in the story of a poor farm hand
trumphantly beating his boss at checkers,
and is paralleled by several hundred Sat-
urday Evening Post covers that tell similar
stories or by the Horatio Alger Tales. It
it is not true by any means that every
realistic work of art is bad. But this is.
The group of ink paintings by the con-
temporary Chinese artist Ch'i Pai-shih, con-
tributed by Mr. Sotokichi Katsuizumi, a
Japanese alumnus, provide us with a de-
lightful interlude in the midst of the pain,
confusion, and distress of 20th-century
Western art. Seemingly without effort, a
dozen or so strokes bring to life a tranquil
duck within the reeds or a grasshopper
quivering on a blade within the living big-
ness of quiet space.

THE LITTLE EXHIBIT of "Work in Prog-
ress in Michigan" composed of the works
of four Detroit artists, is rather disappoint-
ing. The pottery by John Foster seems to
me to rise only occasionally above the level
of technical virtuosity (though the tiny
bright blue vase is very ,fine). But the tex-
tiles of Ruth Ingvarson do not even deal
seriously with that art element which is
known as pattern. Still, I suppose today it
is so rare to find a piece of fabric, however
simple, that is competently woven, that that

alone justifies putting it in a museum.
The paintings of Mrs. Constance Richard-
son are the only really encouraging objects
in the exhibit, and they themselves seem
to be an outgrowth of the 19th-century
American Hudson River School of landscape
painting. Yet there is a dreamy, unreal
quality about her works, which sensitizes
them and lifts them above the level of mere
descriptive skill. The fact that Mars. Rich-
ardson is the only bright spot causes me, as
a native Detroiter, considerable pain. The
Detroit Institute of Arts, not our museum,
committed the selection.
-Robert Enggass

faced with grave responsibilities in the
present international political scene. With
some areas of Europe and the Far East
hovering on the brink of Communism and
with millions of persons all over the world
living under bare subsidence conditions,
we cannot shirk our responsibilities abroad
-responsibilities which are graphically
reflected in Mr. Truman's request for
$13,500,000,000 for defense and $4,700,-
000,000 for foreign aid. Coupled with a
veterans' budget of more than six billion
and interest charges on the public debt
acquired in the last war totaling $6,600,-
000,000, these appropriations constitute 71
per cent of the budget. Obviously then, in
the words of President Truman, we are
"dominated by financial requirements to
pay the cost of past wars and to achieve
a peaceful world."
Nevertheless, it seems inadvisable for the
administration to continue its policy of def-
icit spending at a time when the national
income is at a high level and when pro-
duction and consumption are remaining
near their post war peaks. Unquestionably
there is a real need for government sup-
ports in periods of business recession and
depression but it seems obvious that the
tremendous outlays for defense are already
an adequate stimulus for our economy. Ad-
ditional government deficit spending would
only speed up the inflation process at a
time when wages and prices have already
been spiraling upward.
We do not disagree with Mr. Truman's
assumption that the government has a re-
sponsibility to provide for the minimum
welfare of every citizen and agree heartily
with his proposals for increased unem-
ployment and old age security taxes which
do not come within the fiscal budget. But
it would seem more advisable to hold fur-
ther deficit spending until a period of
economic decline.
Many of the items on Mr. Truman's
budget are unavoidable-the interest charg-
es, veterans payments, foreign aid. But in
spite of the ever-present threat of Commun-
ist aggression, there seems very little' justi-
fication for the $400,000,000 rise in defense
appropriations proposed in the new budget,
And perhaps even more important is the
urgent need for a broad-minded policy
toward Russia-a policy not drawing the
lines of war (as in the Far East and in West-
ern Europe), but a policy blending the lines
of peace through international trade and
cooperation. Mr. Truman predicted defense
outlays approximating the present level
for "the next few years" and yet he sig-
nificantly failed to announce a concrete
foreign policy aimed at peace.
On .the domestic front the budget re-
quests for highway, bridge, airport, and
post office construction could be chopped
off, along with the far-reaching harbor
development, public power and reclama-
tion proposals. Such projects are ideally
adapted to periods of real business reces-
sion but are not essential at the present
Finally, Congress should push through
immediately the administrative reforms
suggested by the Hoover Commission. Presi-
dent Truman has repeatedly sought action
on the proposals which would save millions
of dollars and Congress should put aside
political bickering and the lure of patronage
in the interests of sound economy and a
more nearly balanced budget.

If I Were Dean

. .


To the Editor:
SINCE THE development of a
faith in tl'ie scientific method,
human knowledge (at least empir-
ico-pragmatically considered) has
expanded tremendously, and has
forced curricula makers to ab-
stract subject matter from its nat-
ural context for intensive study.
The necesity for this is obvious
and justifiable. However, is it not
just as obvious that the efficacy
of this material to the liberally,
educated would be greatly en-
hanced if it were somehow put
back into its context under for-
mal, expert guidance?
If I were Dean, I would develop
three courses which would be req-
uisite for a Liberal Arts degree;
and open only to seniors or spe-
cial students. These courses would
revolve about the legitimate in-
terests of mankind: man, his
physical environment, and his so-
cial environment. About man
would be integrated and related
the broad general principles of his
physical evolution, his physiology
and physiological psychology. The
physical environment course
should include the natural scienc-
es, and the social environment
course (which would be the most
difficult, but the most valuable,
for it is here that abstracting from
the total context is most mislead-
ing), should include: the broad
general principles of sociology,
social psychology, economics, in-
tellectual history, cultural anthro-
pology and philosophy. This sure-
ly would be a tremendous job for
the most capable teacher, and
hardly less challenging for the
student. However, its meaning-
fulness together with the chal-
lenge would expose a reservoir of
intellectual motivation seldom
tapped by the average student.
While granting that this three
part division of learning is in
some respects a compromise with
practicalities, it seems to have a
basis in the nature of things.
There seem to be three rather
distinct levels of natural laws:
the physical, the biological, and
the mental. While the laws of
these levels of emergence may be
reducible to their preceding levels,
they seem to be distinct and novel.
Thus, the laws within each of
these divisions lend themselves
better to ordering, interpreting
and integrating within the level of
emergence or set of conditions in
which they are manifest than

0 Is

ent, especially to an engineer, since
engineers have done so much to
alter the landscape of the country
surrounding Plymouth, that the
average individual of today cannot
exist solely through his own indi-
vidualistic attempts, but must
have the aid and cooperation of
others within the society. This in
no way decreases daring or inte-
rity, as evident from our techno-
logical advancements. A pioneer
was fairly independent of his
neighbor, and had to get his own
food, provide his own shelter, and
fight off Indians all at once, be-
cause pioneer society necessitated
that for survival. But in our civil-
ization of today, one group builds
the houses, another provides the
food, and others fight off higher
taxes. The point is that today, by
the very structure of our social or-
ganization, we are all more or less
dependent on each other for our
continued existence. That's just
the way things are. However, since
it is difficult for some groups to
realize that they must aid each
other, it becomes necessary for
some agency to enforce this coop-
eration and to preserve the integ-
rity and existence of each group--
the farmer, laborer, manager, city
consumer, etc. The government
is not providing 'slave security,'
but is trying to protect some
groups from the overbearing rav-
ages of others, hence: pensions,
price supports, etc., and, trying to
provide a security which comes
about through the mutual coop-
eration of all these groups.

Fallacy . .
To the Editor:
tT WAS TOUGH to keep out of
the controversy started by Jim
Gregory with his editorial "New
Voice in the Land," but it is even
tougher to remain out after the
most recent blurb.
Gregory's essential f a 11 a c y,
which is at least as tragic as the
fallacy of the unions, lies in his
implicit assumption that labor un-
ions ought to behave like gentle-
men and let stockholders behave
like more normal human beings.
It is true that labor unions are
frankly out for what they can get,
but it is equally true that investors
are no less motivated by consider-
ations of gain. To pose one stand-
ard of conduct, statesmanship for
labor, (a euphemism for, refrain-
ing from wage demands) and
another for investors, so that they
may continue to maximize their
own gains, is on the face of it
Equally ridiculous is his asser-
tion that unions are threatening
existing levels of production. "Be-
cause cutting production costs
means a cut in spending for new
equipment - equipment which
would lead to more production
and consequently to more jobs. If
present equipment is kept after
it deteriorates, production will
fall." If new equipment means re-
placement of old equipment, then
Gregtry can rest easy after he
learns that corporations are parti-
cularly careful to provide for de-
preciation. But if he means addi-
tional equipment, then assuming
people retain their present habits
of consumption, the problem be-

THE TRAITOR, by Herman Wouk;
with Jack Beauchamp, Margart Pell,
Richard Etlinger and Victor Hurwitz; di-
rected by Prof. Hugh Norton, of the
speech department.
A thematic melodrama about problems
current in American thinking today, "The
Traitor" tells of a scientist and a philosopher
confronted, in the first case, with the ques-
tion of atomic energy and peace, and in the
second, with the problem of academic and
political freedom.
The scientist-the traitor-decides that
the best way to prevent an atomic war is
to give Russia the secret of the atomic
bomb-thus making some sort of horrible
equality of power. The philosopher is asked
to sign a loyalty questionnaire, and feeling
that the Communists should receive toler-
ation "just as any religious minority," he
at first refuses. But when he realizes that
his scientific friend has been lead into be-
comng a spy by the Communists, he
changes his mind and resolves to sign,
believing indoctrination of innocents and
dupes the greater evil.
As a problem play, the play is something
of a problem to the director, actors and
audience. Basically designed on the old melo-
dramatic spy plot pattern, the play gets
bogged down in too much talk and too little
action. The characters sit and discuss phil-
osophy and ethics, and even tell the story of
their lives. Prof. Norton, evidently trying to
compensate for this lack of pace, seemed to
