The Nebulous Parties

BOOKS

SENATOR TAFT'S recent declaration of
candidacy for the Republican nomina-
tion for President has set the wheels in mo-
tion, and the usual political hoopla involved
in the run for the White House will soon
reach its height.
The Republicans look as uncertain as ever.
The Democrats are beset by big and little
scandals, and they haven't found a candi-
date other than Mr. Truman who could
keep the divided vote together.
What does the choice leave the voter? To
an independent voter, one who is interested
in a constructive platform no matter which
party builds it, the 1952 election is a pretty
depressing prospect.
The Republican party has shown itself to
be alive and kicking when it comes to flay-
ing Mr. Truman, Mr. Acheson, Mr. Boyle, and
anyone else who has made a few mistakes
and bears the title Democrat. But the Grand
Old Party has not, come up with a Grand
Old Platform.
Just where does it stand on foreign po-
licy, the probable 'big issue' in next year's
campaign?
You can listen to Senator Taft, and he will
say: "I go along with the administration,
but not all the way. Aid to Europe, but not
troops for Europe. Save Chiang Kai-Shek,
but not at the cost of fomenting a death
struggle in the Orient."
Or you can listen to Mr. Hoover, and he
will say: "We can help our friends, but in
the ultimate we must retire into this im-
pregnable fortress America and wait out the
storms."
Or the old General, whose political inten-
tions are still misty: "The Far East is our
great interest, and we must at all costs save
the Far East, even though it may mean full
warfare with the Chinese."

Or you can listen to the liberal wing of
the party, still a minor force, and in the
person of such a man as Henry Cabot
Lodge, Jr.: "We must carry the policy of
containment to its legitimate end. We must
make friends in Europe, and our foreign
policy must be clear and consistent."
And from this a voter is supposed to know
what he's voting for.
The Democrats, however, are not much
better off in the field. Dean Acheson has
done an excellent job on technical grounds,
but the objectives of the Department of
State have been ambivalent and hazy in the
last five years. The containment policy is
the one great and lasting achievement of
Mr. Truman's administration.
But the incumbent party has shown itself
to be wavering on Far Eastern policy. Even
such a pronounced action as the Korean de-
fense was actually inconsistent with an
Acheson declaration of February, 1950. And
the question of the Nationalist Chinese is
still left hanging, with no positive course in
prospect.
It seems evident that the party which
can present to the public a foreign policy
program of sufficient clarity and appeal
will be the winning one in 1952. The Re-
publican party, if its old guard leaders
can be reconciled to allowing such liberals
as Lodge and Stassen a voice in policy,
could end the drought it has suffered po-
litically for twenty years.
Which would be a good thing for the coun-
try, on the grounds that a new view, though
not necessarily a better view, is usually more
vigorous and more productive of positive
results.

LIFEMANSHIP, or The Art of Getting
Away With It Without Being An Abso-
lute Plonk, by Stephen Potter.
BREAKING ITS WAY through the deluge
of scholarly works and sound research is
Stephen Potter's thesis on "Intimidation by
Conversation," f i r s t introduced in his
"Gamesmanship," now expanded to cope
with the problems of everyday life.
In a hilariously funny satire on accept-
ed social behavior and scholarly presenta-
tions in general, Stephen Potter offers the
sophomoric individual a guide to "being
one up on the experts."
"How to be one up-how to make the oth-
er man feel that something has gone wrong,
without being a cad, but rather, making the
other guy feel like a cad" is the goal of the
Lifeman, according to Potter.
Potter has compiled the most successful
"gambits, ploys, attacks and counter-at-
tacks" of such great Lifemen as Harry Gatt-
ling-Fenn, G. Cogg-Willougby and Odoreida.
"There is no finer spectacle, Potter says,
than the Lifeman, so ignorant that he can
scarcely spell the simplest word, making an
expert look like a fool in his own subject or
at any rate breaking the upness of a man
who has really been to Russia, has actually
read history at Oxford or has written a book
or something.
He offers a six word Block for interrupting
the expert in his steady flow.
EXPERT (just back from a fortnight in
Florence): And I was glad to see with my
own eyes that this Left-wing Catholicism
is definitely on the increase in Tuscany.
LIFEMAN: Yes, but not in the South.
These six words, according to Potter, will
suffice in almost any situation. To give add-
ed effect the Lifeman should produce a map
of the area in question with the southern
portion shaded. Potter informs his aspirants
that these are available in small packets con-
taining areas selected at random and should
be carried at all times.
Potter points out that the true Lifeman
can say anything no matter how obvious
as long as he does so in a "plonking" voice
-roundly, hollowly, dogmatically.
This tone of voice will imply that he has
approached his conclusion the hard way,
through a long apprenticeship of study, when
actually the only study involved is the read-
ing of this enjoyable guidebook with dia-
grams and freehand drawings of railroad
tracks.
These illustrations serve to supplement the
lists of O.K. words, O.K. authors, and sug-
gested conduct for success in weekendman-
ship, Telephone management, Newstatesman-
ship and Damned-good-journalist play, and

ON THE
Washington Merry-Go-Round
with DREW PEARSON
WASHINGTON-Even while Princess Elizabeth and her consort are
in Washington, U.S. diplomats are appraising the cold realities
of the British elections. And they are wondering whether the dynamic,
dramatic Mr. Churchill isn't going to be a lot more difficult to work
with than drab, pedestrian Clement Attlee.
Three weeks before the election, the State Department got an
inkling of this in the form of a confidential cable from the Ameri-
can Embassy in London that Churchill planned a grandstanding
meeting between himself, Stalin and Truman. Since Truman will
not go to Europe and Stalin will not come to Washington, such a
move would play right into the hands of the Moscow propaganda
machine which claims we are the warmongers and won't even
discuss peace.
Furthermore, State Department officials recall vividly though
pleasantly those dramatic days when the beslippered Winston traipsed
through the upper halls of the White House, his crimson and gold
kimono flapping round his half-naked torso, keeping Harry Hopkins
up until 3 a.m., and finally pushing British policy across on the re-
luctant Roosevelt in various parts of the'world.
Today, American policies have largely become British poli-
cies-in Greece, Turkey, Western Europe, Japan and China. But in
those days, British policies usually became American policies,
thanks to the tireless, persuasive, masterful man in the red and
gold kimono, who would not sleep until he had persuaded U.S.
leaders to yield.
A lot of memories come crowding back to the diplomats who at-
tended those meetings. Vivid memories of a vivid personality who do-
minated whatever meeting he attended and usually shaped the world
the way he wanted it. Here are some of them:
CHURCHILL AT CASABLANCA-Here Winston put across two
things: the Italian campaign through the "soft underbelly of the Axis,"
which did not prove to be soft and which many U.S. strategists felt
was a mistake; second, a pledge from FDR that the Mediterranean
theatre would be British-dominated . .. This meant American com-
munications even between our own personnel had to be sent over Bri-
tish radio; that all transportation was okayed by the British, that all
political decisions were British, that a British general superseded Gen.
Mark Clark in Italy . . . It also meant-after the war-that the U.S.A.
supplied the tanks, the lend-lease, the UNRRA supplies in Greece,
while Churchill fixed policy.
CIURCHILL ON GREECE-Shortsighted Churchillian policy
in Greece can best be summarized in his own words, a telegram
Churchill sent to Gen. Ronald M. Scobie, British commander in.
Athens: "Do not hesitate to act as if you were in a conquered
city . .. You should not hesitate to open fire on any armed male
in the Greek capital who assails the authority of the British ...
Keep and dominate Athens." ... British highhandedness in Greece,
taken without consulting the U.S.A., finally forced London to
dump the entire problem in our lap. We have been both paying the
bill and fixing policy since. Before, we merely paid the bill.
BRITISH IN EGYPT-The one-sided results of the Churchill-
FDR political deal for the Mediterranean were inadvertently summar-
ized by U.S. Near Eastern Commander, Gen. Benny Giles, at a press
conference in Cairo . . . "Gentlemen," he said, "I have noticed that you
have been writing political news. You are war correspondents. You are
part of the U.S. army and you will write nothing critical of British
policy in the Middle East."
CHURCHILL ON CHINA-Meeting with Chiang Kai-shek and
FDR in Cairo in 1943, Churchill flatly opposed an Allied campaign over
the Burma Road .. . This was what Chiang wanted most. But Church-
ill, vetoing it, argued for a campaign to retake Britain's old posses-
sions-Singapore and the Malays . .. At this Chiang started to pack
up, threatened to go home. To assuage him, FDR proposed the British
give up Hong Kong, making it an international port under the United
Nations. Churchill's reply: "I did not become Prime Minister to liqui
date the British Empire." . . . Chiang returned to China empty-handed,
and it was this failure to get political support-not Pro-Communist ad-
vice by George Marshall-which really started the downfall of the Na-
tionalists.
CHURCHILL AT OTTAWA-One of the constant battles
between the U.S. milittry and Churchill all during the war was the
Far East. General Marshall, then chief of staff, wanted real sup-
port for Chiang, not make-believe warfare . . . At Ottawa he was
so impatient that there was almost an open break with British
Chief of Staff Sir Alan Brooke- -

PEERING FROM behind a rather repul-
sive cover, the October issue of Garg-
oyle is one of the best to be seen in eons.
The composite picture on page one, while
not as well executed as the MacArthur ad
in the last issue, was convulsing enough.
The Gargoyle "Spacial for da Frashmans"
blossoms forth in the particular type of
genius we always suspected lay latent in the
Garg office. The lead-off article of the
magazine, it dals with the touching story
of "Leetle Rad'idink Marx," a "veectom of
feelthy kepitaist hexploitation."
From there, one progresses to a little gem
entitled "That's My Pig-a hammy story by
Deen Bacon." This opus will be a source of
great delight to them that like puns. To
others, however, it will be one elongated
groan. Personally, we like it.
The "Ann Arbor Expedition" provided
a new twist in Garg's running battle with
their Generation office-mates. Ostensibly
a take-off on Professor Cameron's Near
East expedition, it pictures the trials, tri-
bulations, hardships and hazards of a
group of "scientists" who trekd across the
wilds of Ann Arbor.
Harry Reed's expose of the General Li-
brary provides one of the better features of
the book. Although it dragged a bit along
about the middle, it comes to a roaring cli.
max ending with a typical Gargoylian punch.
The two middle pages are devoted to a
Halloween cartoon, and signal the emer-
gence of one of the finest cartoonists ever to
dapple the pages of the Gargoyle. Happily, it
steers away from the oh-so-arty rut into
which the good gray magazine has slipped,
of late.
Larry Scott, the author of the cartoon,
has. also graced various and sundry other
INTERPRETING THE NEWS:
India China
By J. M. ROBERTS, JR.
Associated Press News Analyst
SARDAR K. M. Panikkar, India's Ambassa-
dor to Red China, has returned to New
Delhi for a vacation which seems primarily
designed to promote India's relations with
her Communist neighbors.
India, as you know, has refused all
along to believe that Red China is so bad
as painted in the West. India, as repre-
sented by people like Panikkar and Prime
Minister Nehru, thinks she can play the
role of "third force" between the contend-
ing groups and come out of it without'
getting involved, and perhaps with an
enhanced position for herself.
Panikkar now excuses Red China's con-
quest of Tibet, which made India very ner-
vous at the time, by explaining that the
Reds are only following through on tradi-
tional Chinese policy as maintained by
Chiang Kai-shek's nationalists. He seems
to overlook any Tibetan rights in th e mat-
ter, of their long maintenance of freedom
from Chinese control, and the implications
of conquest by force.
He likewise attributes Chinese military
intervention in Korea to China's traditional
position, rather than to the* machinations
of international Russian Communism.
Panikkar's return home has been fol-

pages with his marvelous sketches for com-
mercial ads. A real talent, the guy's got.
The Photoquiz, featured somewhere to-
ward the tail-end of the booklet, is another
highspot. It combines an hilarious selection
of photos with an hysterical selection of
quizes, which produces a thing of beauty and
a joy forever.
The art staff came through with a mag-
nificent effort, if one overlooks the hideous
cover which it generated. The overall lay-
out is exceptionally clean. After several is-
sues of experimental make-up, the staff fi-
nally settled down and gave out with some-
thing that was both new and readable.
The large "32" on the final page con-
fused us a mite, but we have finally dis-
covered it to be the number usually as-o-
ciated with the final page.
Also praise-worthy are such features as
"Who Stole My Dinosaur?" "Too Much
Band," "Me and My Aardvark," and the
ever-lunatic ad parody.

DRAMA

THE CURRENT Arts Theatre
Jean-Jaques Bernard's The;
raises certain issues concerning

production,
Sulky Fire,
the nature

and effect of theatrical technique which fair-
ly demand discussion.
M. Bernard has written a play which is
the epitome of the naturalistic style. The
plot, in the sense of those events which
determine the course and outcome of the
action, is slim: a Frenchman returns home
after four years in a German prison camp
and discovers that his wife has had to bil-
let an American officer; the officer writes
to her and finally sends a messenger to ask
her to go with him to America.
It is significant that the last two incidents,
which suggest to Blanche a means of es-
caping her husband's torments, are entirely
omitted from the dialogue and action of the
play. And it appears that M. Bernard is prin-
cipally concerned with the emotional tensions
which they merely set in motion; the hus-
ban's growing jealousy and suspicion and
his wife's efforts to convince him of her fi-
delity. This is as it should be in the natur-
alistic, "slice-of-life" convention, for the
problems of life itself arise most often from
situations which events have merely insti-
gated. Furthermore, the language of the play
is the language of everyday, punctuated with
silence as weighted with meaning as the
spoken words.
A play of this type demands the utmost
of its performers, for the least evidence of
falseness would destroy its life-like at-
mosphere. And-we venture to say it makes
equally great demands on its audience, for
the slightest gesture or word may contain
a veiled meaning that will alter or modify
the entirie course of the play. It is neces-
sary for the spectator who wants to receive
from the play its subtlest connotations to
remain constantly alert.
In this endeavor, he is assisted by the
playwright.whose duty it is to point up those
'attitudes which are most essential to the
movement and meaning of the play. And this
Bernard does with surpassing skill. His task

sound. There is not a note of falseness in the
entire writing of the play, and one of the
spectator's greatest pleasures may lie in fol-
lowing the seemingly endless operation of
Bernard's final resolution to stay with her
husband, couched in the last words of the
play, one cannot be certain whether she will
leave with the Anterican or not.
This resolution leaves the situation in a
highly ambiguous state, for it leaves open to
the main characters two possible ways of fu-
ture life: they will either be reconciled or
spend the rest of their lives, as they have
spent the course of the play, in conflict.
There is no guarantee that Andre's suspicions
will cease.-
It is this reviewer's opinion that the
ending of a play should leave in a specta-
tor's mind a clear and single image of the
characters' lives beyond the limits of the
play itself. Otherwise, the spectator will
leave the theatre confused by the meaning
of the final curtain and uncertain of the
playwright's definitive attitude towards his
characters, the attitude on which to a large
extent depends his own. And here M. Ber-
nard fails us. It is a failing, however, which
is particularly likely in the style in which
he writes. Life itself proverbially has no
ending, and the termination of a work of
art that approximates as closely as possible
life's realities presents a problem whose
solution is necessarily unreal and therefore
untrue to form. This indicates, perhaps,
an ultimate breaking-point in the natural-
istic style.
Whether Bernard is justified in making
the demands on his audience that he does-
and they are heightened by the intimacy of
arena staging-is a question which each
theatre-goer must decide for himself. How-
ever, M. Bernard and the Arts Theatre Club
are both highly skillful in their own domains,
and the objections which have and do arise
from the nature of the play must finally be
not to performance but to form.

... It was after this row that
Churchill proposed M a r s h a I1
take over the European Allied
Command. This would get him
out of'Washington where he had
the power to allocate troops to
either theatre; put him in tu-
rope where he woul4 become ab-
sorbed with European problems.
CHURCHILL ON S E C O N D
FRONT-Wisest policy Churchill
ever argued during the war years
was at Teheran-regarding the
second front.
At Casablanca, the 2nd front
came up again. Churchill de-
creed: "I will not squan!er the
seed of the British Empire." . .
having in mind the inevitable
loss of British youth, Churchill
then laid down a flat ultimatum
that in any cross-channel oper-
ation, Britain would supply 25
per cent of the troops, the Uni-
ted States 75 per cent. This
stopped U.S. military planners
cold.
Six months later, at Teheran,
Churchill argued for a continued
2nd front through the soft under-
belly-namely, Greece, Yugoslavia,
Austro-Hungary. Stalin demanded
a 2nd front across the channel,
aimed at the heart of Germany...
What Churchill had in mind was
keeping Russian troops out of the
Balkans, and politically he was
right. But what the U.S. General
Staff had in mind was military
strategy and winning the war more
quickly. So they ruled out the long
transportation haul through the
Mediterranean to the Balkans, vo-
ted with Stalin for the shorter,
quicker jab at Germany via Eng-
land. Militarily they were right.
Shortly thereafter the war was
won. But the cold war, which
Churchill foresaw, has been drag-
ging on ever since.
