THERE IS A certain value in being arbi-z
tary. It seems to get things done, and
done rather effectively. The only catch is
that when the matter decided directly in-
volves a lot of other people, those people
generally want, as a matter of course, to
have something to say about the decision.
The University is short of money. For
several years now, the administration has
been contriving ways to cut corners, to
decrease costs without harming the operat-;
ing efficiency of the University as a whole.
Some of the means they have taken to
slice costs have been questionable: cuts,
in the teaching' staffs (in some depart-
ments) drastic cuts, fewer scholarships,
and, most recently, Friday night and Sun-
day closing of the General Library.
All of the above actions were handled ar-
bitrarily. As far as the first two were con-
cerned, administrative organization would
require rather definite action. But the last
-the closing of the library-is something
which directly and actuallr concerns more
than just money, and should have been (and
should be now) treated accordingly.
* * *
AST SPRING, when the closings were first
intimated, the Student Legislature be-
gan testing student reaction to the move.
They found plenty. Many students complain-
ed to SL representatives, and their feelings
were directly reflected in subsequent dis-
cussions this fall. By last week, it was clear
that the SL had been given a mandate-
from the volume of complaints, both in writ-
ing and spoken, that students wanted the
library open.
Len Wilcox, president of the SL, set out to
discover who had decreed the clsings. and
who could implement putting the old sched-
ule back into effect.
He went to Prof. W. G. Rice. Director of
Libraries, who had announced the extra clos-
ings, and was told, as before, that they were
forced into the move by a serious slash in
the library budget. Trying to find out why
the library budget had been cut so badly, he
went over to the Administration Building.
The higher up he went, the less the ad-
ministrators knew about SL, and kept ad-
vising him to "go back to your committee,
and tell them to keep working on it."
The significant thing is that everywhere
he went he was shunted off to someone else,
until Wilcox found himself standing for-
lornly in front of the Administration Build-
ing with nowhere else to turn.
RESOLVING THE situation, It looks like
' this: Somewhere in the coils of admin-
istrative procedure, the decision was made to
cut the library budget. This decision was not
a well-considered one. Wheels began turning,
and students this fall found library hours
curtailed. Students protested-enough to
make protest valid. The SL recognized the
sentiment and took up cudgels on the stu-
dent's behalf.
When Len Wilcox, representing SL (who
in turn represents the students), began
to trace the original decision, its source
seems now to have been lost. Either that,
or the SL (and in turn the students) is
being put off in favor of cold, arbitrary
administrative procedure.
This is an extremely poor reflection on an
administration once noted for a receptive
attitude. This is not the first instance of
such an attitude, however, and it may
eventually prove to be the block against
which SL is broken. No organization can
work for long if its goals are completely wall-
ed in. Frther, there is no reason why SL's
primary goal-the determination and execu-
tion of student opinion-should be summar-
ily thwarted by the administration.

TJHE LAW and the Lady, despite a ghastly
preview, turns out to be a quite enjoyable
film if you don't mind relaxing your imagi-
nation a bit. It is a drawing room comedy
in which the usual sort of entanglements
crop up, but the pace is fast, the script good,
and the acting more than adequate. Since
the picture is not meant to be realistic, the
nonchalance with which the characters ac-
cept totally absurd situations as the natural
course of events need surprise no one.
Greer Garson and Michael Wilding are
co-starred in this production, and they
behave as if they are on familiar ground,
which they are. Supporting them are
Marjorie Main, in her customarily boister-
ous role, and Fernando Lamas, the new-
est in an apparently endless stream of the
Latin-American swains imported by Hol-
lywood.
If you think the main attraction incredible
in spots, wait until you see the newsreel.
George Murphy , of Hollywood, and Gardner
Cowles, of Look, sing a duet of reciprocal
praise to the accompaniment of equally
farcical facial contortions and hand-holding.
Both men seem embarassed, and small won-
der. If this scene doesn't draw a coarse
guffaw from your inners, you'd better trot
over to your analyst's.

T he En~d of a Free Paper

Guided Missives

IN AN ARBITRARY and unjustified move
last week, the Dean of Students at the
University of Chicago suspended the student
weekly newspaper, The Marloon, claiming
that the editor was not qualified for his job.
The exact charge by Dean Robert M.
Strozier was that Editor Alan Kimmel
"demonstrated his lack of qualification to
edit a free and independent newspaper by
sponsoring and attending the East Berlin
Youth Festival."
The immediate implication of Strozier's
charge is that Kimmel is a Communist, and
as such would use his position to control
and misuse The Maroon. For on no other
grounds would it be just to deprive Kimmel
of his rightfully gained editorship and his
freedom to speak and write what he believes.
Such suspicions have not been proven.
In fact they could more readily be leveled
at Dean Strozier. For Kimmel, who was
due back from Europe this week, was not
given a hearing at which to defend him-
self.
That Kimmel had not yet returned to
school could not be attributed to any general
lack of responsibility on his part. Classes at
Chicago did not start until October 2, and
the weekly Maroon would only publish one
edition in his absence.
* * *
ACTUALLY THE CHARGES against Kim-
mel were put forward to initiate a plan
by Dean Strozier to place the Maroon under
the closest possible surveillance of the Uni-
versity.
Kimmel makes an ideal jumping off
point, a key figure whose political con-
nections would cause most people to emo-
tionally condemn him and immediately
side with tie University.
The recent history of The Maroon will
bear out the more general implications of
the paper's suspension.
Trouble for the independent Maroon be-
gan last May with faculty charges that it
was "unrepresentative of the student body
in its editorial policy" and that it was in
general a poor journalistic product. Kimmel,
who had just been elected editor by The
Maroon staff, countered that the editorial.
policy (generally termed far left of center)
was the sole reason for the controversy. A
general investigation into The Maroon was
suggested, but Dean Strozier said he would
not back such an investigation-that the
paper would remain free from interference.
A week later, however, Dean Strozier
came up with his own plan, one that would

remedy all the ills and make the paper
extremely representative. He asked that:
1-the editor be popularly elected by the
entire student body,
2-the editorial policy be outlined at least
once a year,
3-a technical advisor be appointed,
4-a journalism seminar for editors be
established,
5-University financial aid be given to
what was a self-supporting paper,
6-a campaign for more editors be con-
ducted.
As a final step "the program and develop-
ment of The Maroon will be reviewed at
regular intervals.'
* * *
N EFFECT Strozier's plan is a well thought
out campaign to make The Maroon a
strictly controlled, inept paper. His plan was'
attacked by the editors, and Strozier put off
further discussion until the fall.
Instead of discussion Dean Strozier is-
sued his summary dismissal. And until the
Student Government follows his proposals,
the suspension will remain in effect.
If Dean Strozier is allowed to continue his
plan, The Maroon will become a glorified
version of the DOB, the editors of which will
be chosen in a popularity campaign between
campus factions.
At the University of Chicago the reaction
has been divided. Chancellor L. A. Kimpton
voiced his approval of Strozier's action. The
executive board of the Student Government
has supported The Maroon. Faculty members
were found to be generally non-committal.
A protest rally was held on campus Tuesday
night. The core of resistance to the Dean's
action has come naturally from The Ma-
roon's staff which intends to appeal the rul-
ing to Student Government and'the Student-
Faculty-Administration Court. But where
the Chancellor has already gone along with
the prejudgement and the condemnation
there can be little hope that much will come
of the student appeal.
For all practical purposes the University
of Chicago, once noted for its liberalism
and free academic spirit, has succumbed
to the popular demand for supression of
all unpopular views.
And when a school that was built on pro-
gressive ideas loses its perspective, it is time
for everyone concerned to take three steps
backward and look objectively at what is
happening.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

Composers' Festival

AN EXPERIMENTAL project has recently
been set up on campus which should
alleviate the .two most common gripes of
persons interested in musical creativity-.
first, that 20th century works are not given
enough consideration in concert repertoires,
performed by competent musicians for re-
second, that student compositions are rarely
cital purposes.
The project which attempts to remedy
these complaints is the Student Composer's
Festival, a. recently materialized dream of
the Music School faculty which aims to pro-
vide performance opportunities for student
composers on campus. Of the three festival
concerts phis year. the first, of chamber mu-
sic, was given Monday night, the second,
consisting of two one act operas, will be to-
night, and the last, the first student-com-
posed program the University Symphony has
ever given, will be next Wednesday.
The Student Composer's Festival is a
logical if somewhat belated result of the
quality and quantity of creative musical
activities at the University during the past
few years. Without worthwhile composi-

tions and proficient performers a festival
of this sort would be a farce. But, judging
from the first festival concert, the compo-
sitions are not only worthwhile but also
are outstanding, dramatic, carefully writ-
ten works; and anyone expecting an unin-
spired exercise from a graduate seminar in
music theory will be pleasantly shocked.
Luckily, the enthusiasm for student com-
positions is high among student perform-
ers, and the result is seen in the well-re-
hearsed, finely executed programs.
Some of the festival's music has been per-
formed here before, notably that sponsored
by the Inter-Arts Union. Three of the cham-
ber music works, those by Cogan, Chudacoff.
and Wilson, were part of the repertoire of
the Student Quartet on their tour in the
Midwest. But the majority are new, untried
works which give the festival the fresh, ex-
perimental air of which it can make such
valuable use.
Ther'e is a wealth of creative energy here:
an appreciative audience can make the Stu-
dent Composer's Festival a permanent, an-
nual event.

T HE WORST SIN toward our
fellow creatures si not to hate
them but to be indifferent to

S THE first president and one
of the organizers of the Uni-
ersity of Michigan Young Repub-
cans, I read with interest of thet
onflict within the present Youngf
epublican Club. Though I may1
avor the more liberal group in.
he club, yet I feel that attempt,
o censor the proposed appear-
nce of Senator McCarthy, is an
.ttempt to control thought in the
>ne place, that is, the University,
there thoughts and ideas should,
e most free.
I feel that if the Young Demo-
rats should want to bring in Bill
Boyle and let him explain the
RFC, or Harry Vaughan and let
aim explain the freezers, or any
>ther of the Truman bunch, that
the University is the place to do
it.
We are fortunate in this coun-
try that differences of opinion,
however strong, may still be ex-
pressed. Censorship by a minor-
ity, a majority, or by Harry Tru-
man and an executive order, are
equally evil. If the group which
feels itself "more liberal" and
wishes to curb McCarthy would
instead plan to find the truth in
his statements, and possibly the
error, they would be of far great-
er service to the Republican Party,
and to ,the nation as a whole.
Finally, a little advice to the
present Young Republicans; at
last, at long last, the Daily has
seen fit to give us a little publi-
city. This in itself is a wonderful
compliment to your activity and
vigor. By the summer of '52, I
know we will have all reconciled
our differences and with activity
like yours, we may yet see the
revival of honest, decent, Republi-
can government.
-James F. Schoener
Bludenz Testimony . . .
To the Editor:
AFTER following Mr. Alsop's re-
cent articles in your newspa-
pers, I have come to certain con-
clusions in regard to Mr. Wallace
and Mr. Budenz. But, in addition,
I have drawn a general conclusion
which I think is of rather more
importance than any specific ac-
tion to come out of the Budenz-
Wallace episode.
This conclusion is that anyone '
who was a Communist, (the word
here having the meaning of an
actual party member) is not only
the most reliable witness to be
had on the matter of another per-
son's present loyalty, but is, as
well, an oracle on such matters
as a person's past influence on
world affairs and his unexpressed
political opinions. The Budenz
challenges of Mr. Wallace's inten-
tions only bring the rather para-
doxical situation that has existed
during the last few years to a
point where it can nct be ignored.
Here we have a case of the re-
formed enemy accusing one whose
views, while admittedly liberal,
were far closer to those prevailing
in this country at the time they
were propounded than those of
the accuser; whose opinions are
accepted as closer to the truth?
The reformed enemy's. The cri-
terion by whiich such a decision is
made seems to me illustrative of
the type of thinking and judging
characteristic of the Unitel States
governmental mind at this time.
I feel sure that the logical conse-
quences of such mental processes
need hardly be elucidated. The
thought of such consequences will
serve as a source of worry, and as
a basis for prediction of the proxi-
mate future both of our nation
and of the cultural level of the
species as a whole.

Daily CriticS, ..,,
To the Editor:

IT HAS been said that for every
good writer, there are at least
ten bad critics. We believe thai
many people will agree with u.
when we say that criticism is
worthwhile just so long as it pro-
vides constructive as well as des-
tructive analysis. We are of the
opinion that as soon as it con-
tinually assumes only a deridin<
point-if-view, or only a compli-
mentary point-of-view, then it
ceases to have any true critica]
value.
It would appear that those
members of the Daily staff whc
have assumed the position of cri-
ties have forgotten, or have never
realized the two-fold aspects oa
the art of criticism. We certain
ly hope that they do not go so fai

>oint where they consider them-
lves art critics. For, in our
pinion, they fall far short of this
itle.
By continual depreciation of the
rts, they have demonstrated a
>rprising degree of immaturity
.nd lack of good taste, For, in
;heir attempts to criticize with
vhat they undoubtedly consider
acumen, they demonstrate not
omprehensive critical ability, but
ather what appears to be only
adesire to disparage with as much
hrewdness of phrase and use of
ubtle similes as is possible. By
heir criticisms, we are reminded
of the student in his second se-
nester of psychology who, after
laying absorbed a few facts whiich
ead him to believe he has gained
omprehensive insight into human
behavior, proceeds to demonstrate
his ignorance by his eager at-
empts to analyze his fellow stu-
dents and friends. In this case
the comparison might readily ap-
ply to the Daily critics. Apparent-
ly they are so anxious to weld a
clever phrase and to squeeze as
much sarcasm as possible into-a
few paragraphs, that they have
ost theability to criticize con-
structively and with a reasonable
atmount. of good taste and sound
judgement. The question which
perplexes us most is this: do these
"critics" actually enjoy avaricious-
ly attacking excellent performanc-
es, thereby arousing disgust and
antagonism, or are they attempt-
ing to create a larger reading
audience by their slanderous and
unbalanced opinions?

SL Rent Bureau;...
To the Editor:
BECAUSE rent controls have
been removed in Ann Arbor
above the protests of the Federal
Housing Expeditor, Student Leg-
islature has again seen fit to open
its -Tenant Complaint Bureau.
There is no longer a Washtenaw
Board which investigates com-
plaints. There is no longer and
effective means in this town for
those unfairly treated by land-
lords to leave their impressions of
decontrol on the town. Therefore,
Student Legislature is handling all
complaints in the hopes that if
rent control is still needed, these
facts and figures will help prove
to the Ann Arbor City Council,
that Tighe Woods was correct
when he said there is no reason
for decontrol in Ann Arbor and
every reason to believe that con-
trols are truly necessary.
If the Federal Housing Expedi-
tor was right, please let us proe
it. Reopen the case fod rent con-
trols, by calling 3-4732, the Stti-
dent Legislature Building.

WASHINGTON-U.S. scientists are skepti-
cal of the British newsletter report that
Bruno Pontcorvo, the escaped British sci-
entist, taught the Russians how to make a
Hydrogen bomb. They are almost certain
Moscow has not had time to make an H-
bomb .. . . The new explosion could have
been an improved baby-sized bomb - in
which case, the Russians are getting nearer
to the type used in artillery shells, etc.... .
Pontecorvo, who eluded the British by=going
to Italy, then to Finland, then into Russia,
will now be given Russian citizenship. He is
credited with putting the latest bomb to-
gether.
Russian experiments-It's no secret that
the United States and other friendly na-
tions have seismographs and Geiger count-
ers stationed around Soviet borders to
pick up earth tremors and uranium dust.
Airplane patrols also take samples of dust
out of the air to analyze them for uran-
,ium . . . . From these detection devices it
seems clear that the Russians tried to set
off an A-bomb several weeks ago which
fizzled - perhaps because the trigger
mechanism failed. This is the most deli-
cate part of the A-bomb . . . :. This failure
was why the Atomic Commission report-

thoroughly understand the theory of Atomic
energy but in addition to poor production
techniques the Russians are short of Uran-
ium and Plutonium .. . . This is where the
U.S.A. has gained its tremendous Atomic
superiority. Only sources of Russian Uran-
ium are the worn-out mines in East Germany
and in the Jackamov region of Czechoslo-
vakia. It was from the latter mines, inci-
dentally, that a group of Czech miners de-
serted across the border into Germany last
week carrying messages from Freedom bal-
loons,. ,. . Russian geologists are frantically
scouring the Soviet Union and satellite na-
tions for new deposits, and this picture could
change,
International Atomic Controls-Secretary
Acheson is willing to make one more gesture
toward world control of Atomic energy-as
a result of Stalin's recent feeler-though we
have our fingers crossed . . . . Acheson will
work only through the United Nations. There
can be no separate dickering with Russia.
Furthermore, Acheson will not budge one
inch from the Baruch plan for controlling
the bomb and will insist on a foolproof sys-
tem of international inspection to make sure
the Russians keep their word . . . . Mean-
