Good Will

IN THESE DAYS when the international
news is at best discouraging, the recent
settlement between Germany and Israel is a
heartening sign of "good will."
A few days ago Israel filed a claim for
$1,500,000,000 of reparations from Ger-
many for the Nazis' "gigantic slaughter
and rapine" of European Jews.
Notes were dispatched to Washington,
DORIS FLEESON:
RFC & Truman
WASHINGTON - President Truman has
shifted from active defense to a reserved
attitude regarding White House aides and
friends named in the Reconstruction Finance
Corporation scandals.
Democratic leaders have agreed there-
~fore to let nature take its course. They
would prefer to have the President crack
down on those who have been impairing
his prestige; some bitterly declare that all
his troubles in such immensely important
fields as military and foreign policy stem
from the weakness he is displaying about
what they call the little things that count.
But since, apparently, Mr. Truman will not
so move, they intend to interpret his silence
as consent tO grand jury and other efforts to
clean house.
HE PRESIDENT, of course, is acting in
character. His policy regarding contro-
versial nominations that he sends to the
hill has always been that he could take the
storms if the nominees could.
In such discussions with his people he
has never left any doubt that he himself
would not thus retire from the fray. In
fact he has indicated that, in his view,
withdrawal constituted confession of in-
adequacy.
It is- increasingly the feeling among in-
fluential Democrats that the housecleaning
must go forward with ruffles and flourishes.
Various portents have not been lost on them.
One is Sen. Estes Kefauver's television
stardom which is reaching its zenith in the
New York climax to his crime investigations.
* * *
ATTRACTIVE political figures often make
greater reputations here but the pro-
fessionals in the courthouses are usually very
timid about buying these.
What the poll proves is that the Demo-
crats outside of Washington know what is
so thoroughly realized here-that Mrs.
Merl Young's mink coat is no joke politi-
cally.
All this is somewhat of a change from
the days when any gathering of Democrats
freely threw off Senator Fulbright, the RFC
nemesis, as a Boy Scout and suggested that
their 190 election trnhle connld h hlamed

London, Paris, and Moscow. The notes con-
tained a request that the Big Four consider
at any future meeting not only over-all rep-
arations but individual restitution. Also in-
cluded in the note was a request that the
Big Four suggest steps to be taken to imple-
ment the payment.
The Israeli government pointed out that
the sum asked is approximately the value
of exports from West Germany alone.
Alfred Hartmann, Secretary of State in
the Bonn Finance Ministry of Western Ger-
many revealed that the West Germany Fed-
eral Government and eleven state govern-
ments are negotiating now as to the methods
of settling the claim.
The "good will" aspect of the situation
lies in the fact that not only is Germany
willing to meet the Israeli claim, but an-
nounced its intention of doing so before it
had received any intelligence of the Big
Four note.
Of course, no amount of money can repay
suffering. But that Germany will give Israel
the money it needs for the rehabilitation of
500,000 survivors is one of the few incidents
today of humane statesmanship.

The
City Editor's
SCRATCH
PAD
BY PAUL BRENTLINGER
AS THE TIME for the naming of the new
president of the University approaches,
it seems fitting that a dark horse candidate
should be introduced into the controversy
over who will get the job.
This dark horse is Arthur S. Fleming,
currently the director of defense-man-
power problems for Charles E. Wilson's
Office of Defense Mobilization.
Fleming's name is offered on the basis of
rumors which The Daily has heard as to the
nature of the man who will be appointed.
These rumors have mentioned the following
characteristics of the new president:
1. He will be a distinguished educator.
2. He will be well-know nationally.
3. He will be a relatively young man.
4. He has not been mentioned in The
Daily's speculative articles concerning the
appointment of the new president.
It appears that Fleming meets all of these
requirements pretty well.
During the last three years, he has had
an excellent record as president of Ohio
Wesleyan University, at Delaware, Ohio.
He has attracted much attention for his
views that college students should take
an active part in political affairs.
Fleming probably is better known nation-
ally than most of the other men mentioned
as possible University presidential candi-
dates. Before serving as head of Ohio Wes-
leyan, he wasI a member of the famous
Hoover Commissign which studied the pos-
sibility of streamlining the federal govern-
ment.
As for the age matter, Fleming is 46 years
old now. Alexander Ruthven was 47 years
old when he was appointed to the presi-
dency in 1929. Fleming is younger than
Detlev Bronk, president of Johns Hopkins
University, and is about the same age as
Stanford University president John Sterling.
Both Bronk and Sterling have been men-
tioned as candidates for the presidency
here.
Certain other factors admittedly weigh
against Fleming as a candidate. Perhaps
the most important of these is the fact
that he has just begun his work with Wil-
son's office.
Other objections are relatively minor, but
still might be important. For example,
Fleming is not a PhD. He has won a couple
of honorary Doctor of Law degrees; but his
formal education appeas to have included
only the AB, AM and LLB degrees.
Also, Fleming is not a member of Phi
Beta Kappa. He is a member of Omicron
Delta Kappa, which in many colleges is the
highest honor a student can receive. How-
ever, this doesn't carry the academic weight
which is supposed to go with the Phi Bete
key..
So don't rush out and put all your savings
on a bet that Fleming will be the University's
.eighth president. Just remember that it is
very difficult to find a man who meets the
qualifications for the presidency which the
rumor mongers have established. It may be
just a coincidence, but this rumored descrip-
tion of the new president does happen to fit
Fleming.,
Welcome Back
WITH ALL the arising out of ashes that is
being done around the University lately
it seems only natural that those individuals
slightly left of center should also get into the
act. The newest bird is the Willie McGee
case but it has the same old feathers of past
projects fostered by "leftists."
In a way the Willie McGee case has pro-
vided the campus with some of the color
that makes life in a university town such
a unique experience. Many people usually

get pretty worked up about these issues,
and whether they may be right or wrong,
their literary blasts through the Letters to
the Editor or oratory on the diag stir up
a lot of interest.
Actually the McGee case was more wel-
come than many in the past. It's been a long
time since there has been an outstanding
case that might be brought to the attention
of the people. One could speculate probably
that the atmosphere of a national emer-
gency and also the trouble abroad have in
some ways inhibited "leftists."
Now that the tension has eased some-
what on the international front, the "left-
ists" probably feel that the action taken
here on the campus will have a greater
chance of succeeding.
Right or wrong, I welcome the "leftists"
back to the University. They are as much
a part of the campus as the Arb and P-Bell.

Influence or Ethics *.*«
To the Editor:
THE LETTER by Col. McKean
in last Thursday's Daily cites
"two minor inaccuracies" in the
March 1 story concerning the ex-
pulsion of Robert Lapham from
the Engineering College. Possibly
there is another, for the story
stated that "The disciplinary
committee claims that their ac-
tion has nothing to do with Lap-
ham's conscientious o b j e c t o r
stand or the request of Col. M-
Kean for his expulsion." Regard-
less of its possible intent, the col-
onel's letter will likely have the
effect of persuading many readers
that his request and Bob's stand
did influence the committee.
If these two factors carried no
influence, then the controversy
boils down to "contract viola-
tion" and the "question of ethics,"
both admirably dealt with by oth-
ers in this column and by The
Daily in its March 2 editorial. It
is not my purpose here to defend
pacifism (I have done so before)
but simply to call attention to the
implications involved if that stand
and the request of the colonel did
carry influence with the discipline
committee. For if they did, two
fundamentals are at stake:
1. If military influences on this
campus are such that they affect
attitudes and decisions of disci-
pline beyond their own units we
are closer than I realized to the
militarist state toward which we
are racing on a national scale.
2. If fitness as a student is to
be judged on the basis of con-
scientious religious commitments,
one may question which of the
parties involved has the greater
concern for ethics and whether
the stage is not set for discrimi-
nation on the basis of religion-
which, although apparently not
much involved in the case at
hand, would be a regrettable sit-
uation should it develop. By de-
claring that Bob "has no ethics"
the committee as much as called
him a liar when he admitted, af-
ter hearing the opinions of the
committee, that he should repay
the Navy. Is it unethical to admit
that one has been wrong and to
act by what one believes to be
right?
It may not be irrelevant to note
that the U.S. Supreme Court re-
cently clarified the phrase of the
citizenship oath to "support and
defend the Constitution and laws
of the United States of America
against all enemies, foreign and
domestic," in ordering that a Ger-
man-born Quaker pacifist be ad-
mitted to citizenship. Although
the similar phrase in the third
NROTC contract referred to in
Col. McKean's letter is obviously
in a military context, it should be
observed that the court does not
regard such an oath of a citizen
as necessarily implying a willing-
ness to take up arms.

Reviews . . .
Tothe Editor:
['M BOTHERED by Mr. Hamp-
ton's cartoon in Sunday's Daily.
Had he labeled the reviewer's desk
"W. Hampton" instead of "Daily
Critic," it might have been more
appropriate. Mr. Hampton, one
of The Daily's few competent and
qualified reviewers, is unfairly
maligned for a good, discerning,
unfavourable criticism of an or-
ganization which has become too
accustomed to success to accept

failure rationally.
There is a great difference be-
tween an unfavorable review and
a bad one. Mr. Hampton's was the
former; the reviews of "Hanlon
Won't Go" and certain musical
concerts have been both in excess.
Readers and theatre companies
will accept and abide by just, con-
structive criticism by an emotion-
ally mature adult. Such criticism
helps the first group select their
entertainment wisely, and helps
the latter improve their produc-
tions. But they object to the
grandiloquent attempts at clever
invective of an unqualified emo-I
tional adolescent whose gods are
the New York drama critics and
whose work is characterized by
destructive criticism and rhetori-
cal exhibitionism. These reviews
injure reputations and feelings,
kill initiative, and do financial
damage to a production, as the

reviewer thoughtlessly worships
his Well-Turned Phrase.
It is unfortunate that actors,
directors, and production staff
should see their work of months
contemptuously dismissed by a
journalistic fledgling flattered
with the title of "critic." Perhaps
the present justified criticism of
unjust critics would end if The
Daily would select its reviewers
by the criteria of discernment and
good taste rather than on the
basis o f pseudo-sophisticated
"wit." If tryout reviews were writ-
ten on a show which all the jud-
ges had seen and evaluated, and
were judged on the basis of the
entrants' knowledge of drama-
turgy, acting, and directing, The
Daily's theatre reporters might
deserve being called "critics."
-Jas. E. Brodhead III
Madame Pandit ...
To the Editor:
I HAVE just seen report of an in-
terview by Wendy Owen in
your paper, which does not cor-
rectly represent the answers given
by Madame Pandit to some of the
questions which were asked. It is
obviously the result of a basic lack
of knowledge of the views dis-
cussed by your reporter. I would
especially like to draw attention
to the first sentence in the inter-
view in which by leaving out one
word the whole sentence has been
changed. Miss Owen reports Ma-
dame Pandit as saying, "I don't
even find a knowledge of Com-
munism in this highly civilized
country". Madame Pandit said in
reply to a question whether the
Indian peasant understood Com-
munism, 'that "he did not, and
that even in a country as highly
civilized as the United States, the
common man could not be ex-
pected to know apything about
Communist ideologies".
Again regarding Russia, the
twist given is incorrect. The re-
porter says "She (Madame Pan-
dit) insisted that India does not
view Communism or Communist
China as a threat". These were
two distinct questions. So far as
Communist China was concerned,
Madame Pandit said that "Diplo-
matic recognition of a country
does not imply approval of the
foreign policies of that country."
The reference to the automon-
ous Indian States is also incorrect.
The sentence as it stands is coi-
pletely ignorant of the present
condition in India. In the Indian
Constitution there is the Central
Government, and there are States
similar to your own in this coun-
try with their own legislatures and
autonomy only in State affairs.
It is some of these States that
have banned the Communist
Party.
The speech at Rackham Hall
was read from a written text and
consisted of quotations of Mahat-
ma Gandhi's sayings. The one
referred to by your reporter would
have read as follows:
"Whilst all violence is bad and
must be condemned in the ab-
stract, it is the duty of a believer
in soul force to distinguish be-
tween the aggressor and the de-
fender. Having done so he will
side with the defender in a non-
violent manner; that is, give his
life in saving him."

Peace Proposals . .
To the Editor:
AN ACQUAINTANCE who has
just returned from West .Ger-
many reports that the German
people are not at all enthusiastic
about our plans to rearm them. If
we must fight Russia they want
us to do the job elsewhere. They've
had enough of uniforms and
goosestepping and flag-waving.

Also they've had enough of that
which follows; having been on
both the giving and the receiving
ends of the big guns and bombers
they know where of they speak.
Even the German children, my
acquaintance relates, express their
parents' fear and hate of all
things military by throwing stones
at the automobiles of army offi-
cers. (My acquaintance should
know as her husband is an offi-
cer.)
Not only the people of Germany
but people everywhere who have
really suffered the ravages of mod-
ern war, cannot be inspired by
top-level pep talks. Nor can they
be heartened by Eisenhower's re-
cent announcement that he would
not hesitate to order the use of
the atomic bomb if he felt it were,
to our advantage. We who think
of ourselves as a most humane
and Christian nation will use the

L*t*eferlto.the6Iitor0..

A-bomb first if it is considered
advantageous-regardless of pre-
vious pronouncements to the con-
trary! And when the A-bombs
and the H-bombs begin to ex-
plode, there can be no careful dis-
crimination between civilian and
soldier, between friend and foe,
between the innocent and the
guilty.
T h e civilian population of
America has not suffered the ef-
fects of total war. But surely we
possess the imagination to know
its horrors. And knowing them,
we must find constructive ways to
ease the present world tensions.
Armamants races are an old, old
story-always with the same trag-
ic ending. The call to arms does
not inspire the war-weary people
of the world. It will take some-
thing positive, something ennob-
ling, something akin to the spirit
of the early Christians. It will
take another UNRA-with billions
spent to build and plant and
teach, rather than to burn and lay
waste and kill. It will take plows
and tractors and building steel
rather than guns and tanks and
bomber planes.
And it will take peace meetings
rather than war rallies. Tonight
there will be three peace plans ex-
plained at Rackham Auditorium;
the Nehru peace proposals, the
Reuther plan. and the Quaker pro-
posals for peace-all positive ways
to ease world tensions. These "al-
ternatives to war" are presented
as one of the "Religion in Life
Week" programs.
Those of us who prefer peace
to war would do well to attend.

Generation ..
To the Editor:
"THE TIME has come," the Wal-
rus said . . . " This letter shall
speak of cabbages. It has long
been the policy of reviewers in
The Daily to assume the'pose, in
reviewing the Generation, of
weary, febrile old men who have
read so much literature that no-
thing really impresses them. And,
since one realizes, that most of the
reviews sound like the work of
tired newspapermen, one is apt to
pass over the review. But a time
comes (Thurs., Feb. 22, '51) when
one must speak of things.
Mr. Dave Thomas is not res-
ponsible. He is one of the many
caught in. the act of apeing his
elders. Nor are his elders to blame,
since the effort to view literature
as something of import is much
more exhausting than to say, "We
are tired by it all. We shall say
how it impresses us."
After one has finished reading
Mr. Thomas' review, a deadly le-
thargy sets in. One wonders what
such an article has to do with
Art, which is so dynamic. The
contention being made here is
that Mr. Thomas is no critic (con-
trary to the pose) bt a reviewer,
although this is also doubtful, and
as such he should stick to the
magazine and not to his Impres-
sions. He has neither the time nor
the inclination to make valid jud-
gements. Let him be impartial both
in attitude and tone of his re
view (which he was not) as well
as in facts. But keep the emotion-
al backwash of his impressions off
the printed page. Should he con-
tinue to stick on his impartial
fence, never committing himself
openly, yet panning by mood and
slant, which is the most insidious
and difficult to combat, he is any-
body's fair game.
Mr. Thomas speaks in the first
person, the position of authority,
with none of authority's weight
behind him. But the impressions
which he airs are assumed by a
trusting public to be valid critical
judgements, "which they are not.
Before the public gets to the ma-
gazine they have a prejudice

(Thomas') and the purpose of the
artist is thwarted. The public has
been given a back-hand slap: they
are not competent enough to make
their own judgements (it is as-
sumed); the reviewer makes them
for the public.
Again, there is a treifiendous
amount of egoism involved. Most
critics and/or reviewers are con-
tent to judge one poem and think
they may have done a fair job.
Not so Mr. Thomas. He passes
judgement with equal equanimity
on music, short story, poetry, es-
say, photography, sculpture, and
painting. This is, if one may put
it mildly, remarkable.

Militarism
To the Editor:
THE VISIT of a distinguished
Indian lady to open a Gandhi
library seems to be an appropriate

occasion to add something further
to the discussion of Mr. Lapham's
case. It seems somewhat illogical
for the University to accept a
;andhi library with one hand,
and to expel a student for his con-
version to Gandhi's principles with
the other. I am not personally ac-
quainted with Mr. Lapham, nor
with the details of his case. Rather
am I concerned with the effects
on the University of an action
which has at least the appearance
of a lack of generosity, and of an
unwillingness to tolerate sincere
differences of opinion, which can
hardly fail to lower its usefulness
as an institution for the discovery
and propagation of truth.

I myself believe that a properly .
motivated stand against partici-
pation in all war at this peculiar
Juncture of history is a service not
only to God but to one's country.
The demands of military defense
are espentially insatiable and ulti-
mately, incompatible with the
maintenance of either democracy
or capitalism. Military conscrip-
tion is the beginning of totalitar-
ianism. People are more free in
Russia than they are in any army,
and once conscription is generally
accepted, the conscription of la-K
bor and capital (and what more is
communism than that) follow
naturally. The' greatest threat to
American society is not at present
from without but from within-
the threat of militarism; with its
belief in destruction rather than
discussion, in power rather than
in convincement.
I am not suggesting that Mr.
Lapham, or even Gandhi, has the
infallible answers. But Gandhi's
great experiment in India repre-
sents the one piece of twentieth
century history that is different
-that is a sign of hope rather
than of despair. The utter inabil-
ity of military defense to yield
either security or peace, not to, say
love or decency seems apparent.
One would think ..that society
should encourage those who are
seeking, however clumsily and
inadequately, better methods of
defending those things which we
all hold dear.
I do not question the sincerity
of those who have acted in this
case. It is not easy to accept or ev-
en to tolerate new ideas, when
these seem to threaten the ancient
securities of armed right on which"
we have previously relied. It is not
Mr. Lapham's ideas however which
threaten these securities: they lie
in ruins around us, destroyed by
the hand of their own technical
improvement. May not now be
the time when a very simple but
determined following of the way
of Christ will show us an avenue
of escape, not only for ourselves,
but also for our country, which
we all love.

MUSIC

MY TROUBLE, I suppose, is that I don't
attend recitals to hear Heifetz play the
violin or Horowitz play the piano: I go to
hear a musician play Beethoven or Mozart.
Last evening, armed with a score, I dis-
covered that Heifetz doesn't play Beethoven
-therstraight-forward Beethoven of the
Kreutzer Sonata-but fusses with, and dis-
torts what the composer originally intended.
First, were the number of unwarranted
retards and speed-ups: Beethoven careful-
ly indicates in the first movement what
passages are to be played adagio, and
what passages are to be played presto.
Heifetz added a number of his own tempo
indications-none of which improved on
Beethoven's own. Nor did Heifetz observe
the repeat marks, either in the first or last
movements. Since Beethoven kook the
trouble to write first and second endings,
Heifetz should at least take the trouble
to observe the repeats and play all the
notes leethoven wrote. The first and final
movements of the Kreutzer Sonata go so
quickly that the repeats are vitally neces-
sary. But perhaps Heifetz feels that they
don't go quickly enoxgh, and that too
much Beethoven might bore the audience.
Heifetz is much praised for his tone and
his flawless intonation. But nothing is so
calculated to upset the nervous system as
