WHEN THE mock Security Council
meets in Ann Arbor tonight stu-
dents will be given the excellent oppor-
tunity to see and hear a "United Nations"
The UNESCO sponsored meeting, which
is guaranteed to be anything but tame,
will concern the two most pertinent is-
sues of today-Korea and Red China.
This meeting, which will be held at
7:30 p.m. in Rm. 130 of the BusAd. col-
lege, will not be a free for all but rather
a well staged debate by informed students
and faculrty members who will represent
the eleven members of the Security
Five of the members will actually be
speaking for their own native country.
Citizens from India, France, Brazil, and
Britain, will become their own nations'
The UNESCO Council is throwing into
the laps of students the chance to grasp
the meaning of some of the procedures
and tasks of the Security Council. The
mock session is/ also an opportunity to
hear the diversified opinions of foreign
students concerning the explosive issues
of today. En toto, the meeting is an oc-
casion not to be missed.

A Place

FOR YEARS, the Association of Indepen-
dent Men has been accused of having no
place on campus, of being a useless, vindi-
cative organization, doing no group any
good. In part, this criticism was deserved,
for last year AIM was in some respects a po-
litical pressure group whose policy was
mainly based upon opposition to everything
the IFC supported. But this past semester,
thanks to an aggressive executive cabinet
and a hard working council, AIM has prov-
ed that it is an organization which can and
does serve a purpose-that of being a service
organization for the independent man on
With the 'Little Club,' a student, night
club in the League which drew capacity
crowds, AIM started upon its new program
of service. This project provided students
with a place to go after the movies or
plays on Friday nights. AIM also ex-
panded its athletic program by providing
independents with an opportunity to pur-
chase athletic equipment at larger dis-
counts ranging to 35 percent, and by pre-

senting two athletic trophies to the resi-
dence halls. These trophies will be award-
ed to the house which places first in all
around intra-mural competition and to
the house which has the most men par-
ticipating in IM activities.
In representing the opinions of the men
in the quads concerning the poor service
and food, AIM again proved itself of value.
They helped bring legitimate gripes before
responsible authorities and are now as-
sisting in the distribution and tabulation of
the residence halls survey.
For next semester, AIM hopes to continue
the projects which have proven so success-
ful this year and add several more which
they hope will give further service to thq
independent. Among the projects already
underway is a complete index of every
rooming house in Ann Arbor, giving the
good and bad aspects of each. Concerts by
name bands in Hill Auditorium are being
scheduled, and a plan is being worked on by
which outside independents will receive pro-
per representation in the AIM council.
As for expanding its service in residence
halls, AIM will help organize house gov-
ernment in the South Quad, and continue
to urge qualified men to run for office in
both house and campus government.
By becoming a service organization, AIM
has proved that it has a place on campus,
and judging by its plans for the coming
year, it is likely to become one of the most
important and pfogressive groups at this

GENERATION. Vol. 2, No. 3. Spon-
sored by the Inter-Arts Union; edited and
managed by University students. Thirty-
five cents.
THE Spring edition of Generation, out to-
day, rather confirms the impression
made by earlier issues of the magazine; ghat
each one is better than the last. The pres-
ent issue is marked, generally, by a clean-
ness of design and layout missing in previ-
ous editions, and by a great deal less of that
kind of self-consciousness about the high
purpose of the publication which used to
alienate its readers. All this, needless to
say, is to the good.
We have the usual complaints. The
make-up still retains a heavy sort of
artiness which must inevitably color the
impression of the reader; the advertising,
done up with the biggest canons of light,
dark and balance in mind, is crammed
most inartistically on the page; poor ink-
ing in spots in our copy manages to do
away with much of the merit which some
drawings and paintings may have po-
ssessed (among these Jim Eldridge's and
Sally Baker's oils.)
Despite these things, however, it cannot
be denied that Generation is one of the best,
if not the best literary magazine published
by students in this country. Its overall level
of work printed-particularly in the writing
portions-is considerably higher than com-
parable college periodicals.
Breaking the current issue down into sec-
tions, it would appear that the essay, repre-
sented by Editor Sig Feller on pure jazz,
William Matheson's short study of the play-
wright Giraudoux, music critic Louise Goss'
re-examination of music festivals, more
about theatre-in-the-round by Richard
Burgwin and a technical but interesting re-
view of the recent furniture exhibit by

Carleton Ryding, presents the strongest sin-
gle front.
In the poetry division, Donald Hope re-
turns with two fine little poems, the first--
"Sonnet for Three Pictures"-momentarily
bringing before the reader the color and
feeling of the Italian renaissance. Not so
good are three trite quips by H. A. Burdick,
characteristic more of a debased Edward
Arlington Robinson than anything else. T.
Carlin Brammer's grand group of words
seems to be nothing more, though he some-
how manages to rhyme "way" with "quay."
Extraordinary freshness is evidenced in
Frank O'Iara's rambunctious poem "Hom-
age to Rose Selavy," while Allan Hanna's
translation of the prologue of the Aeneid
adds a unique touch to the magazine,
Hanna's original accompanying lyric is un-
Al Shumsky and Jack Farris must take
the prizes in fiction this time, with their
short stories "Mrs. Williams" and "Mr.
Thomason the Barber," respectively. The
latter is constructed with unusual precision.
Saul Gottlieb's story, "The Weaker Brother,"
is less impressive than some of his other
The magazine is dressed up somewhat
by the inclusion of some abstract photog-
raphy, most of its uninteresting. Many
of the paintings and drawings failed to
reproduce well, but we were particularly
struck by a pencil portrait by Judith Fein-
berg. There seems to be an overabundance
of abstractions, and this portrait was a
pleasing change. Music in this issue is
Ed Chudacoff's settings for some of

formed earlier this year in the Inter-Arts

KANSAS CITY, MO.-Kansas Republi-
cans will stand by the home product,
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, as a presiden-
tial possibility until they get a much clearer
look at the possible alternatives.
National committeeman Harry Darby
told all comers at the committee's Tulsa
meeting last we;kend that Kansas was
naturally interested in Eisenhower and he
let it go at that-publicly. What this dip-
lomatic evasion actually represented, how-
ever, was a tug at the reins of the party's
Increasing -commitment to Gen. Douglas
MacArthur, his person, his policies and
his most vociferous backers, Col. Robert
McCormick and William Randolph Hearst.
The caution which the astute Darby
sought to instill in his colleagues found sub-
stantial echoes. For example, the Tulsa key-
noter, witty Sen. Eugene Millikin of Colo-
rado, poured it on the Democrats with a vim
which literally laid him in the aisles but he
carefully and by design avoided the appear-
ance of a MacArthur apostle. Millikin has
in Washington attempted to exercise the
same restraint on the Senate Republican
conference of which he is chairman.
There are various reasons for their wari-
One is MacArthur himself. Republicans
are intensely grateful to the glamorous man
who has so suddenly crystallized for them
America's frustrations with respect to Ko-
rea, the domestic weaknesses of the Truman
administration and the threat of war. But
the seasoned political brains among them
realize they do not know him well or what
to expect of him and that they cannot con-
trol him.
All politicians are naturally allergic to
dream princes anyway. These make their
contacts too directly with the people and
get out of hand so easily.
Many Republicans, too, want to know
more about the MacArthur policy and
what it is good for besides a stick with
which to whale Harry Truman. They fear
that war-party label and and its possible
timeliness when the election is a great
deal closer than it is now.
There seems to be very little belief that
MacArthur himself will wish to run. It is
not ruled out but it is not expected.
Basically, Republican caution rests on a
solid foundation-that 1948 upset. They
were leery at Tulsa of boasting about their
prospects, rosy as they now look. Americans
of the present generation will never forget
the great depression and Repu1 licans will
never forget Harry Truman's' feat.
Tulsa also demonstrated again that only
one candidate for president-in either par-
ty, as anatter of fact-is in there pitching
as Y'ard as he can. Backers of Sen. Robert
A. Taft were on the job as usual, cultivat-
ing the delegate garden. Similar activity for
Taft was reported from several states.
The Taft people are said to feel that
MacArthur's contribution improves the
Senator's chances almost to the point of
making him inevitable. They reason that
MacArthur eclipses Eisenhower and that
despite his differences with Taft on Eu-
ropean intervention, he is closer to him
than to any other prospect.
But the nagging doubt persists amony
many Republicans that Taft can be elected
and that a wholesale commitment now to
MacArthur will be a good buy a year from
next November.

WASHINGTON-One thing that hurts the prestige of Congress
these days is the way in which the boys rally to each other's de-
fense, no matter how guilty one of them is.
When Congressman Brehm, Republican of Ohio, was on the
verge of being convicted of salary kickbacks, for instance, Con-r
gressman Michael Feighan, Democrat of Ohio, marched up to
the witness stand and testified to Brehm's fine character. Later,
the jury, ignoring Feighan, found Brehm guilty.
Again, after Congressman Andy May of Kentucky was convicted
of bribery, kindhearted John McCormack of Massachusetts and..
..others publicly paid tribute to his patriotism.
Last week the House of Representatives rallied to the defense
of a member who almost went to jail, and helped him get revenge on
a government agency which had tried to prosecute him.
The congressman was Gene Cox of Georgia, who proposed cu-
ting$575,000 from the budget of the Federal Communications Com-
mission, because he said, it housed an "army of Red lawyers.'
"If you should go down to the commission and take a look,
and not know you were in Washington, you would think you were
in Moscow," the Georgia Congressman stormed.
Real reason for the congressman's spleen, however, was that this
was the same commission which nearly sent Cox to jail.
* * * *
IN 1943 THE FCC discovered that Cox had received $2,500 in stock
from the Albany (Ga.) Herald Broadcasting Company after he
had secured a new wave-length for that company. This is against the
law, for a congressman cannot receive a fee for any services perform-
ed before the federal branch of the government. He is paid a regular
salary to do this and cannot take money from individuals.
As published by the Washington Merry-Go-Round at that
time, the criminal division of the Justice Department found: "the
documentary evidence leaves no doubt that Cox's clients regard-
ed him as their legal representative, that they believed Cox
'compelled' the Federal Communications Commission to grant the
license-as in fact he did-and that he was paid for his services."
The criminal division recommended prosecution. However, Speak-
er Sam Rayburn, a close friend of the congressman, put on the
heat and Cox was never indicted.
However, he soon retaliated by getting his friends in congress to
vote $60,000 to investigate the FCC, and then got himself appointed
Chairman of the committee which investigated the outfit which ex-
posed him.
And last week, Cox once again got his revenge. He proposed that
the FCC's rather meagre budget be cut by half a million dollars. And
without even taking the trouble of a record vote, his colleagues in
Congress shouted their approval. The Cox amendment was passed.
THE REAL STORY of Andre Artukovich, the "Himmler of Yugo-
slavia," now residing at a Pacific coast town near Los Angeles,
goes back to the assassination of King Alexander of Yugoslavia in
Marseilles in 1934.
At that time, Artukovich was a member of a little band of con-
pirators working out of Yankapusta, Hungary. Financed by the Axis
powers, this group was led by Ante Pavelich, who plotted the shooting
of King Alexander when he arrived on a visit to France to cement re-
lations between France and Yugoslavia.
The Axis powers did not want to see those relations cemented.
And the death of Alexander, which was blamed on negligence by the
French police, caused great resentment in Yugoslavia. It also left it in
the hands of a boy king.
In 1941 when Yugoslavia was invaded by the Nazis, it was
natural that Pavelich and Artukovich, who had trained in the
Axis camp in Hungary, should lead the puppet government. Pave-
lich, now considered the No. 1 unpunished war criminal, became
premier, while Artukovich became, Minister of Interior, in charge
of the police. It was under him that 1,000,000 Jews and Serbs
were killed.
During the latter stages of the war, both men escaped to Bavaria
under the protection of Hitler; and after Germany fell, Pavelich fled
to Argentina. Artukovich managed to reach Ireland, then flew to New
York under an assumed name, Alois Anich, arriving July 16, 1948. He
-has been living quietly in Los Angeles evr since, until his identity was
publicized by this newsman two weeks ago.
Last Wednesday the immigration service denied his application
for citizenship, and steps are now being taken to have him deported.
If this move is successful, it will then be up to the State Department
to pass on the Yugoslav government's request for extradition.

NO LOUD-SPEAKER was used during the MacArthur hearings, and
some senators had difficulty in hearing. Reason for having no
loud-speaker was that there was not time to get a loyalty check on the
technicians who operate it. They would have had to be in the room,
listening to secret military information . . . . Tribute to MacArthur by
John Elliott at the Jackson Day Dinner in Los Angeles: "first in war,

I HAVE JUST witnessed one of
the most disgusting displays of
juvenile inconsideration and vio-
lent poor taste in my experience.
The only other comparably bad
examples of such behavior have
all been perpetrated upon the
same excuse and have occurred
within a sharply confined geopra-
phical area, namely, the Univer-
sity of Michigan campus. I am re-
ferring of course to the tapping
ceremonies of various "honor" so-
cieties. How anyone could con-
sider invitation to such a group
an honor rather than the ultimate
of insults is, to me, completely
baffling. Why a small group
should have the right to disturb
over a thousand men from their
sleep or studies is also beyond my
understanding. Apparently they
do have the' right, for the only re-
action of the residence halls staff
is, "Oh well, it happens every

T HE ANNUAL spring drama season has
chosen to open with a play of modest
dimensions this year, and cannot be said
therefore to have gotten off to a dazzling
George Bernard Shaw, who seems to have
replaced Shakespeare as the classic touch
in this year's slate, has written many in-
different plays, and this would appear to be
one of them. It is not that the current
drama fails to contain the distinctive
Shavian qualities, the spirited plot, the bright
Einds and Means
THE OBVIOUS if often forgotten. Person-
ally, if I may repeat what I have said
elsewhere, during all these years of thought
and action and activity and inactivity and
passivity, more and more it has been borne
in on me, this basic lesson of Mahatma
Gandhi, that means are always as important
as the ends; that it is not good enough to
have a good end in view, but the means you
adopt to reach that end are at least as im-
portant. If you adopt wrong means, evil
means, to attain a good end, the evil means
do not lead you to that good end at all.

wit, but neither of these ingredients are
present in sufficient quantities to compen-
sate for the fact that the problem with
which this play concerns itself, the abstract
question of justice, no longer vitally engages
this generation which, for better or worse,
does not have Shaw's late Victorian enthus-
iasm for social reform.
Perhaps this is taking the play over-
seriously. But unhappily, the wit does not
measure up to what we are accustomed
in Shaw's later plays. "All men are chil-
dren in a nursery" and "Be a good shiek
and kiss my hand" may have glittered in
1900, but they seem to have lost some-
thing of their luster today. As delivered
by Edna Best, they appear to finest ad-
vantage, however.
Without doubt Miss Best is the star of the
show. She invests a weary play with all
the vitality it is possible for an actor to
give it. Her perfect finesse supports the un-
certainty of other performers in the first
two acts, which would otherwise tend to
drag. When the other players catch up to
her at last, it is again her fine flippancy that
ties together the stray plot threads in a
saving third act.
John Archer does not seem altogether .
happy in the title role. His want of con-
fidence reveals itself in stagey posturings
and an unreal voice that you want to put
your finger through. It is only fair to add,
however, in his character as the captain
he is repeatedly condemned to ridiculous
and unsymnathetic situations.
