On Deferring
* * *
Federal Scholarships
IXILE THE object of the new draft law
-to provide a steady flow of both
technically trained and widely educated
young men-is a wise one, there is one ma-
jor fault with the plan. It is essentially a
law for the privileged, for those who havci
the financial means to go to college. Those
who do not have sufficient money will eith-
er have to submit to the draft or will have
to work and work hard summer and win-
ter to put themselves through school.
Horatio Alger and personality formation
aside, they are being badly short-changed.
The excuse that scholarships are plenty
and ripe for plucking is a little facetious.
While existing grants might well take care
of some men (women, of course, would have
to be excluded from applying) the majority
of the right field deferees would have to
sling hamburgers five nights a week if there
were enough hash houses on campus to take
care of them.
The actual answer to the problem and
a logical one at tl;at, is federal scholar-
ships. If the government is going to make
college a reason for deferment it should
make college equally accessible to all. And
the 'scholarships should not be just for
future atomic scientists. The ideal planr
would be a civilian version of the G-I bill,
with financial need rather than service
time being the criteria.
If such monetary aid is not made avail-
able to those who need it, the family in-
come will become an important factor in
getting into and staying in that deferred
2-A classification.

College Men
An E ye to the Future
T HE PRESIDENT'S order deferring col-
lege students indicates that the govern-
ment has finally mastered one of the most
vital facts of contemporary life: that we
need men not only to fight wars, but, more
important, to prevent them.
The order shows a realization that we
need more than technicians and fighters
-the men who win battles. Evidently
there is a growing awareness that we also
need political scientists, sociologists, wri-
ters, teachers and all those who will con-
tribute to a balanced society and who will
conduct our national government and in-
ternational relations. For it is they who
must seek the peaceable solution to the
world's problems, the only valid solution.
Perhaps the government has learned its
lesson from Great Britain. For a year during
the First World War, Britain had no draft,
but encouraged voluntary enlistments. Her
most brilliant and patriotic young men, en-
couraged by an incautious government, en-
listed and marched off to slaughter in the
early battles of the war. When the draft
finally began, the finest young men had
been annihilated.
And so, in the crucial years before the
Second World War, many of Britain's
rightful leaders were lying dead beneath the
soil of Belgium and France. The vigor, in-
telligence and courage which these dead
young men would have furnished, had they
lived to take part in the governing of Bri-
tain, might well have prevented Munich
and the Second World War.
This example indicates that the nation's
best young men must be saved in order that
they may save the nation.
By focusing attention on the value of
college-trained men in all fields, the Pre-
sident's plan discourages foolhardy en-
listment and steers young men to the
jobs where they will do the most good.
The main objection to deferment of col-
lege men has been that it is unfairly dis-
criminatory. This argument is more dog-
matic than realistic.
It is no more unfair to defer college stu-
dents than it is to exempt men over 26
years of age. Of course it is unfair that one
man should have to go to war and not
another. But obviously some discrimination
will have to be employed. And since this
must be, it is well to use reason and fore-
sight in the process.
Deferment does not, as some complain,
necessarily entail economic discrimination.
Any single man without outside responsibil-
ities, if he's intelligent enough to be defer-
red, can send himself through college with-
out aid from his family. Many scholarships
and fellowships are available.
True, these must be limited to the more
deserving. But even without such help, any
intelligent person can work his way through
college by working summers and part-time
during the school year, certainly with no
more effort than he would be expending if
he were training or fighting in the service.
With the war emergency, summer jobs
will be plentiful and lucrative. A person
should be willing to work, and work hard,
for the privilege of staying in college
while others fight.
The President should be congratulated for
showing foresight and common sense in re-
gard to the draft. His action took courage,
and it may well mean a loss of votes at the
next election for the President's party. But
if, as he claims, President Truman wants to
be remembered as a man who helped pre-
vent World War Three, his order deferring
college students may well have swept him
considerably closer to that goal.
-James Gregory


TlHE ATTITUDE of impatience shown to-
wards students by many professors isj
all too prevalent here at the University. Un-
due impatience can be harmful in any walk
of life, but here on the campus its effects1
can be especially damaging.1
This can be seen when a student ap-1
proaches his professor for help in his school-
work. To be met with a rebuke at a time
when encouragement is needed can seri-
ously affect the student's performance. And
for a new student on the campus to meet
such a rebuke can make his adjustment per-
iod to University life that much more dif-
The' unfavorable light these impatient
teachers shed on others is unfair, also. It is
too easy to forget the many patient, thor-
ough teachers because of the bad impression
their irascible colleagues create.
Such impatience was recently shown a
Daily reporter who approached two profes-
sors for some facts to write two stories. The
student was given the information, but
later in the interviews, was rebuked for at-
temnpting to writo a story with only "half
the facts."
The reassurances of the reporter that he
would check the completed stories with the
professors for accuracy left them visibly un-
convinced. They could not understand how
this would result in complete, authoritative
In both cases of the student reporter
seeking facts or a student requesting h7elp in
his schoolwork, the principles involved are
the same. This impatience is unnecessary
and, at the same time, endangers any edu-
cational system. And, unfortunately, it is all
too popular a retreat employed by many
professors who "can't be bothered" with the
legitimate questions asked by students.

JN A NOTICE sent around to all house
directors, University women have been
warned that they should not leave for va-
cation before Friday, and they should not
come back after Monday without first get-
ting permission from the Dean of Women.
This permission will be granted auto-
matically to seniors, but not to the rest of
the women student body unless they,
have a very good excuse.
In this matter the University is taking a
halfway viewpoint, and this seems rather ri-
Whether they be freshmen or seniors, stu-
dents of University age should be able to
decide for themselves whether or not miss-

A id to India
BY COMPLETING a trade negotiation
with India the Chinese Communists
have won the first victory in the race with
the United States to court India.
The Peiping government and India have
reached a barter agreement under which
China will send India 50,000 tons of rice
in exchange for 165,000 Indian gunny-
Today when every international episode
is eyed with regard to its propaganda ele-
ment, this trade agreement is especially
significant. The Chinese are exploiting the
fact that India negotiated with the United
States first but have already received food
from China and that aid is not expected
from the United States until November or
December of 1951.
The propaganda element becomes more
obvious when one realizes that although fall
harvests in China were good this year, the
country is still under a rule of economic
austerity. It is doubtful that with the re-
curring tragic Chinese famine the Peiping
government can afford to be so generous
Americans cannot blame the Chinese for
taking full advantage of the United States'
dilatory action. In addition to bickering
over technical aspects of aid to India, the
United States government recently threat-
ened to halt aid to India because of po-
litical differences in the United Nations.
The United States-India agreement which
was finally reached is not sufficient to meet
the immediate problem of famine. The
1,200,000 dollars which has been granted
provides for technical assistance for agri-
cultural, river-valley and transportational
Although this modern equipment is an
important necessity, India now urgently
needs 6,000,000 tons of grain to feed her
The India government has formally asked
the United States for 2,000,000 tons of grain,
the rest to be supplied by Argentina, Can-
ada and Australia.
To meet this demand an ad hoc national
Emergency Food Committee for India has
been formed to persuade our government to
allocate this grain to India.
It is certainly unfortunate that the
chance of a political victory determines
policy when over one-half a million peo-
ple are starving. But here is an oppor-
tunity for the United States to win what
is even more important in a world almost
void of humanitarianism-a moral vic-
If the State Department is more than just
a political instrument, it will heed the re-
quest of the committee and open the copi-
ous graneries of America to India's starv-
ing population.

Irantc Chaos
MAYBE Secretary Mgrshal is thinking of
Iran when he sees darker clouds ahead.
Certainly Iran seems to be dissolving in
chaos before the eyes of both the Western
and the Soviet world. Since Premier Ras-
mura died, there is nobady at the helm with
anything like his caliber, though both the
Shah and Premier Ala are well-intentioned,
What the country needs in the event that
disorder calls for martial law is simply not
there; martial law or decree government
without authority is a contradiction in terms.
Assistant Secretary of State McGhee is
reported by and criticized in the New York
Times as saying the United States will not
interfere in the event of trouble in Iran.

That all depends. Mr. McGhee is, of course,
right if he means, as we take it he means,
that there will be no interference with the
internal structure of Iran. But if the Com-
munist-run Tudeh Party were to seize pow-
er that would be another matter, and cer-
tainly there would be the same concern as
in 1946. In that year there was U.N. action,
and the Tudeh Party was restrained and
outlawed. Again the party, taking advan-
tage of the prevailing chaos, is on the ram-
page, and the leaders have been let out of
jail. The Russian Embassy, according to
the Voice of America, is the center of a
system of propaganda and sedition in behalf
of the Tudehs.
Thus there are all the makings for a Rus-
sian-engineered overturn. This time it
might well focus on Tehran rather than
on the border province of Azerbaijan, as in
1946. In any event the free world is in a
different posture for meeting it. In 1946
not only did Secretary Byrnes swing swiftly
into action in the United Nations; the Brit-
ish moved the second Indian armored di-
vision to Abadan, on the Iraq-Iran border.
Now the Indian troops, once a tranquillizing
force in Asia, are no longer guarding the
outposts. They are probably patrolling the
Indo -Pakistan border-immured internally
instead of available for maintaining the
peace against the troublemaking of what
Rudyard Kipling used to call the Russian
-'T'he Washington Post.

Award .
To the Editor:
T GIVES ME great pleasure to
award to Chuck Elliot the
dubious distinction of President of
the Listen Quick Club, He has
stooped to a fault too common in
1 journalism and has taken a sen-
tence out of context and misquoted
it. As a candidate for SL I never
said, as quoted in The. Daily of
March 16, that "I will sincerely
work to get a playground for the
East Quadrangle." The substance
of my speeches on that matter was
that I considered the lack of ath-
letic facilities a major problem. I
never implied that a - playground
should be built for the East Quad.
Rather I offered a tentative solu-
tion permitting the East Quad resi-
dents access to the U. High ath-
letic field at such times that it
would not conflict with U. High
activities. A project of this nature
could only be accomplished
through the active support of an
organization such as SL.
However Chuck Elliot has con-
tended that a matter such as this
would fall beneath "the lofty
perch" of SL. Mr. Elliot has failed
to remember the many times that
SL has exceeded his reactionary
limits. They have assumed projects
whose only justification can be
found in the good accomplished for
the specific group. An example of
this was SL's housing bureau
which served only the unorganized
It has come to my attention that
Chuck Elliot has petitioned for the
office of Vice-President of the
Senior Class. Let us hope for the
sake of the Senior Class that Mr.
Elliot understands more fully the
responsibilities inherent in the of-
fice of a vice-president than he
does the responsibilities inherent
in fair and accurate journalism.

BIRD OF PARADISE, with Louis Jour-
dan, Jeff Chandler, and Debra Paget.
DEPENDING ON how easily you are lulled
into Polynesian idylls, you will either be
sensuously titillated or considerably bored
by this one. Maybe a little of both.
The faults that exist are certainly not
those of the technicolor camera. The pro-
duction is conceived with brilliant Pacific
settings, native costumes that might be fresh
out of the Fruit of the Loom factory, and a
full-bodied Hawaiian-type musical theme
that fairly gushes from the screen.
Dramatically, however, it is useless to try
to get very interested in the characters in-
vOlved. They include a young Frenchman
who wants to go native, the son of the local
chief whom he has befriended at an Ameri-
can university, and, inevitably, the daugh-
ter of the chief, whom he falls in love with.
There is much speculating on whether East
is East and West is West, or not, but for the
most part, the plot becomes a chronicle of
