Fraternity Rushing

ANO'iHER fraternity rushing period has
just been completed. Once again we hear
rumblings of discontent from the fraterni-
ties and the rushees concerning the present
rushing system.
Since so much dissatisfaction exists,
now might be a good time to examine a
substitute plan for this introductory phase
to fraternity life.
IFC might well take a tip from the wo-
men. First semester freshmen should not
be permitted to engage in formal rushing.
Those interested, however, should be en-
couraged to register with the IFC, stating

SCURRENT
THE BREAKING POINT with John
Garfield, Patricia Neal and Phyllis Thax-
ter.
THIS IS Hollywood's second attempt to
adapt Ernest Hemingway's novel, "To
Have and Have Not" for the screen. It scores
a bulls-eye.
Although liberties have been taken with
the story line, they do not interfere with
the essential action and the film emerges
as a tough, fast-moving picturization of
Harry Morgan's futile efforts to beat the
game.,
Morgan, eking out a precarious living with
a charter fishing boat (which is not paid
for) to support his wife and two children,
comes face to face with economic realities.
Pressured by his insecurity, he unwillingly
enters the smuggling of aliens into the coun-
try and finally runs afoul of four ruthless
pandits who commandeer his boat for a get-
away.
John Garfield ably portrays the embittered
Morgan who "hasn't got a -chance" and
Phillis Thaxter gives the usual stereotype
of the loyal wife a much-needed shot in
the -army by simply playing thv role as it
might have hannnnor in rea1life Patricia

the names of any fraternities in which they
might be interested.
Those houses in which the prospects have
indicated an interest might then invite the
men to visit the fraternity in small, infor-
mal groups-possibly no more than 10 men
at a time. If these gatherings become regu-
lar weekly or bi-weekly events the "actives"
in the houses would begin to accept them in
the normal course of events and to act more
natural and relaxed then they now do in
the terse, tense, open house rushing ses-
sions. This lessening of tension would tend
to put the prospective rushees at ease also.
Thus, both sides would see the other as they
actually are, which is impossible under the
present system, and a much truer evalua-
tion on the part of both the rushees and
the fraternity would result.
The following semester, after both par-
ties would probably have their decisions
made, a short formal rushing-pledge per-
iod would take place.
The advantages of this proposal are num-
erous. Under the method presently in opera-
tion, freshmen who have been on the cam-
pus for as little as two weeks are asked to
make one of the biggest decisions of their
college career. How are they guided in mak-
ing this decision? They are subjected to
a ten day period of hectic handshaking and
frantic repeated recitations of the basic facts
of their lives.
A choice of this sort requires deep thought
and consideration. The current "rat race"
system affords no opportunity for such com-
templation, and the rushee is badgered into
choosing the group of men with whom he
will spend most of his college days, without
an. opportunity to gain sufficient know-
ledge of the house and its members.
Another reason for deferred rushing is
that if this plan were put into operation,
the freshman mortality rate might be con-
siderably decreased. Newcomers to the cam-
pus would not be permitted to add the
burden of pledging to that of maintaining'
an acceptable scholastic average in their
first and most difficult semester at the Uni-
versity. This is the main reason for the ex-
cellent rule which bars first term freshmen
from participating in many campus activi-
ties.
Naturally this proposed system is liable
to many abuses. Any, rushing system in-
cluding, certainly, the one presently in op-
eration, is subject to the so-called prac-
tice of "dirty rushing." This is a problem
for the IFC to solve.
The use of this proposed plan or a similar
one, I believe, would tend to- improve the
house spirit, while benefiting fraternities
and rushees alike. And, it would remove the
one major flaw in the University's otherwise
fine fraternity system.

ALEXANDER NEVSKY-At Hill-Ser-
gei Eisenstein, Producer, Music by Proko-
fiey
"ALEXANDER NEVSKY" is a motion pic-
ture about a battle. Like Oliver's "Henry
V," the plot line runs toward and climaxes
in the battle; the rise of nationalism is the
emotional spur; mass scenes are predomi-
nant, and a revered leader emerges. "Nevsky"
however, is essentially Russian in its "mass"
focus. Although a modern Eisenstein rather
than a 16th-century Shakespeare wrote the
script, the movie reveals its Russian origin
through its almost total negligence of the
individual, its constant concern with the
group.
All the eternal themes of war as they ef-
fect the king, the warrior, the common
man, the woman, the mother, the friend,
the lover, the traitor and victor and van-
quished are treated with a strength and
directness that touch the bases of age-old
humane psychology. That is, as far as the
Russians are concerned; the Germans are
black-washed from beginning to end.
Eisenstein's masterly camera work creates
for the screen all of the inherent pageantry
in mass movement and in mass intent to
kill. The ancient formal battle positions are
played on with alternate shots of the leaders
and those few stereotyped individuals chosen
to illustrate the universal effects of war. The
Teuton knights in their uniform white cloaks
with black crosses and their brutal iron hel-
mets and the uniformly shielded Russian.
troops waiting their charge make up a kind
of shifting, emotionally charged geometry.
"Alexander Nevsky" is magnificent propa-
ganda. The "enemy," here the Teutons, take
on all the distortions visited upon enemies
by all fighting nations. They are black-
washed from beginning to end. In the light
of the presentation of the war psychology of
a prilitive people, this kind of simplicity
is excellent. More probably, the ghoulish
outfitting and treatment of tW Germans is
a projection of the Russian nationalism of
1938 .. . not that of the thirteenth century.

Road to Greatness
IT IS WELL to remember, when we some-
times fall into narrower grooves, that
greatness has never come from the nar-
rowness of mind, or again, greatness for
a nation as an individual comes from a
wide perspective, an inclusive outlook and
a human approach to life.

LOS ANGELES-There is a tendency on
the part of some candidates in the cur-
rent election campaign to wave their war
service before the voters as a great political
asset. When a candidate thus appeals for
votes he then automatically invites public
scrutiny of his war record.
Such a situation exists in California
where candidate Edward Shattuck is play-
ed up as a "veteran of two wars" in his
race for the important job of Attorney
General.
The record of Colonel Shattuck, happens
to be interesting. It is interesting not only
to California voters but to every family
whose son or husband is being drafted into
the armed forces. For Colonel Shattuck oc-
cupied a high-up place in the selective ser-
vice office in Washington with its power of
life or death over much of the nation.
Yet, while he held this key war post,
and was busy drafting others, the record
shows that he kept his own public-rela-
tions man in California ready to promote
and publicize everything he did. In fact,
Shattuck had decided even as early as
1941, before Pearl Harbor, that he would
use his war job to run for political office.
No scrap of publicity was too meager for
the Colonel to overlook if it served to pro-
mote his political future.
"We might try for a story in the monthly
alumni California magazine," Shattuck wrote
his publicity man on July 3, 1941, after he
was made General Counsel of selective ser-
vice. "And the U.S.C. Alumni News. Stan
Barnes could help on California, and Harry
Silke on U.S.C. You might also try Los An-
geles Jr Chamber of Commerce bulletin and

perhaps a word to the 20-30 magazine in
Sacramento would get an article there.

"MIGHT GIVE US A BREAK"
"It seems to me I recall a California maga-
zine similar to Look which might give us
a break. Jim Mussatti might give it a ride
in the State Chamber Publicity. I believe
that this particular assignment is worth
playing for all the publicity we can get.
Anywhere there is a good tie-in should be
used to the limit.
"The primaries are in Auguist," continued
Colonel Shattuck. "If things broke just right"
and enough publicity went out meantime,
this might be an ideal set-up. If things break
so that I can run, I will, (At that time he.
planned to run for Governor or Lieutenant
Governor of California.)
"Are there any big conventions coming to
Los Angeles where a national-defense speeeh
with emphasis on selective service could be.
made and to which we could wvangle an in-
vitation? There might be some American
Legion Convention, even though only the
State Convention or some such. Anyway,
would you find out? Such an invitation di-
rected to Gen. Lewis B. Hershey especially
requesting the hometown boy, would I am
sure, bring results. Of course the origin of
this suggestion will always remain just be-
tween you and me."

WOODROW WILSON'S NAMESAKE
Former President Woodrow Wilson must
have been present in spirit when a disabled
veteran of the war he tried to prevent by a
League of Nations called at the White House
in a wheel chair.
The caller was ex-Army Corp. Woodrow.
Wilson of Millville, N. J., who lost both legs
and a hand in Germany after the battle of
the Bulge. He came to President Truman
with a forget-me-not, opening the annual
fund-raising drive of the disabled American
veterans.
"You have a distinguished name," sug-
gested Truman. "By any chance--"
"Yes, sir, I am related td the late President
Wilson," said the veteran, "and was named
after him."
"Well, I know he'd be mighty proud of you
if he were here today," replied Truman.
"You remind me of another young fellow
to whom I awarded the Congressional Medal
of Honor. He told me he regretted having
only one life that he could give to his coun-
trv. "_

Cinema Guild..
To the Editor:
THE RESPONSIBILITY for the
booking of films, last year in
the charge of the Art Cinema
League, has now been assumed by
the Student Legislature. The aims
and policies of the new organiza-
tion remain, however, fundamen-
tally unchanged. We will consider
ourselves successful, in fact, if we
can. approximate this year the
quality of cinematic entertainment
enjoyed some years ago when the
Art Cinema League introduced
to Ann Arbor audiences such dis-
tinguished film productions as
"Symphonie Pastorale" (which we
hope, by the way, to bring back),
"Shoe Shine" and "To Live in
Peace."
Some of you 'ay find our ini-
tial efforts clumsy and Ill-manag-
ed. Like all new organizations we
are enduring acute birthpangs We
have not expected some of the
difficulties we have encountered.
The first few showings may rep-
resent, therefore, a kind of experi-
mentation inasmuch as we are
still looking for the most reliable
distributors. The necessity, too, of
using the Architecture Auditor-
ium, because of the frequent un-
availability of Hill Auditorium,
will force us to bypass im-
portant films we would be only
too anxious, under different con-
ditions, to bring to the campus.
We wish to make every assur-
ance however, that in spite of these
.liitations, we nevertheless expect
to be able to offer a vivid program
of films. We have great faith in
the cinematic medium as a form of
artistic expression. We believe that
it can say important things with
all the perfection and persuasion
of the traditional forms of expres-
sion. And that it is capable of
moving its audience to feelings of
great experience. We believe that
our current presentation, Alexan-
der' Nevsky," qualifies under this
standard. And we hope to include
"Bicycle Thief," "Major Barbara,"
"My Darling Clementine," and
"Ivan the Terrible" will do no less.
As a final assurance we wish to
add that it will not be our inten-
tion to introduce films of merely
historical interest. We do believe
rather that a film must be 'good,'
must be entertaining, before it can
qualify for greatness. The last
thing then you need bring to our
presentations is antiquarian curio-
sity, the first thing P. desire for en-
tertainment.

Football, *
To the Editor:
THISMORNING as I opened my
issue of the Daily, I was sur-
prised not to find a letter degrad-
ing our football team's play last
Saturday. Can it be that people
like Mr. Christiansen have at last
realized that our team has lots
of spirit and that it doesn't do
them any good whatsoever to talk
about "firing the coach" because
we happen to lose a couple of
games so early in the season. Let's
see them through the season at
least.
I was at the game Saturday and

I was fortunate enough to be one
of thoserthat sat on thetsidelines
with the team. In all the time I
have watched and played foot-
ball, I never before experienced
the sight of our own players
straining and playing their hearts
out to win. They los.t, but with a
few breaks they may have won.
. What we need here at Michigan
is not a new coach (personally, I
think he is a good coach) or more
team spirit, but more student
spirit. I mean to have the stu-
dents really cheer at the games
instead of the half-hearted yells
the team gets. Don't be afraid
to cheer because the spectators
around you are. Yell your head
off and maybe you can wake those
other people up so they will cheer
too. I think the team will like it
and play better for us.
Just one more thing. Let's get
behind our team in victory or de-
feat. Support them to your'full-
est. Let's not hear that we are
going to lose all the rest of our
games because we aren't!! We are
going.to win the Big Ten again.
As I said, I was at the game
and I can say, along with all the
other Michigan men and women
that were in Yankee stadium, that
I was and still am proud to be a
Michigan man!!!

To the Editor:
UNFORTUNATELY, I have not
been endowed with sufficient
genius to find much coherence in
Mr. Neufeld's latest contribution
to this column. Therefore, I will
(only with great effort) do my
best to piece together his implica-
tions in order that we may have
some idea of his reasoning in op-
posing the rearinament of western
Germany. He emphasizes that
"partial German rearmament may
be unavoidable," but does his "un-
avoidable" mean "advisable" or
"necessary?" Or does he consider
this "partial German rearma-
ment" a thing which we would
prevent if we could? If he means
"advisable," to what extent does,

The most striking inference to
be drawn from Mr. Neufeld's last
letter is that he believes it our
duty to keep Germany so weak
for the next 50 years that she
would be incapable of waging'\.vart
We then, it is assumed, should
also restrict the power of all na-
tions save our own because we
cannot trust any nation to main-
tain a friendly policy toward us.-
History has taught us that plan-
ning alliances 50 years in advance
is bargaining for trouble. In
short, Mr. Neufeld implies that
this country should determine how
strong any country should be per-
mitted to become, for he says .
. the stronger a country is, the
less it is going to submit to out-

fusion of my literary adversary on
this subject is amply illustrated by
his latest conclusion; and (2)
That, be they democrats, social-
ists, or national totalitarians, the
west Germans should be rearmed
