T EYOUNG REPUBLICAN club on cam-
pus is faced with a miniature version of
the same fundamental split that the nation-
al organization is grappling with.
A group of hard-pressed liberals is try-
ing to hold back the flood gates of reac-
tion. A rupture exists between the con-
servative wing, led by Taft nationally and
Bill Halby, '53, and Ron Seavoy, '52, lo-
cally, and the progressive group, represent-
ed by the Eisenhower forces on the na-
tional scene and Dave Cargo, YR presi-
dent, on campus.
The present YR squabble is over campus
speakers. Halby & Seavoy insist on turning
loose on the student body men of such cali-
ber as Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis), Sen.
William Jenner (R-Ind), or news analyst
Fulton Lewis, Jr., while Cargo and his as-
sociates are fighting to invite some worth-
while men in the state political organization
as well'as the national.
For example, last spring when Cargo's fac-
Editorials published in The Michigan Daily
are written by members of The Daily staff
and represent the views of the writers only.

tion held more or less an upper hand, such
men as Owen J. Cleary, chairman of the
GOP state central committee, and Frank X.
Martell, president of the Michigan A.F. of L.
came to speak. They represented viewpoints
which hadn't been heard as much, view-
points to which the GOP is going to have to
reconcile itself if it hopes to show well in '52.
The Republican party might as well start
learning right on campus that the balance
of power in the '52 race will be held by the
independent voter, and the independent
voter is, by and large, either liberal or in-
telligently conservative. He is on the whole
a rational individual.
Therefore, YR could make no greater
mistake than to exhibit such as McCarthy
on campus as a prototype of the flower of
the party. The independent will not be at-
tracted by the oft-repeated Taft-Mc-
Carthy-Lewis line. This appeals orily to
the old party-liners, whose vote it would
be impossible to lose.
Therefore it is to be devoutly hoped that
Cargo will be able to win the necessary sup-
port to keep control of his organization, to
silence 'the troublesome reactionaries who
are bidding to regain the upper hand which
they lost last spring when Cargo became

WASHINGTON-Before very long, the fi-
nal settlement of the embittered con-
troversy about the size of the Air Force ought
to be publicly announced. After the most
prolonged and laborious discussion, which at
one point kept the Joint Chiefs of Staff in
almost continuous session for ten days on
end, the heads of the services have reached
agreement among themselves. The agreed
plan only awaits the approval of President
Truman to become official.
If the President approves, which seems
almost certain, the plan will provide for
expansion of the Air Force from ninety-
five to about 140 groups-the exact figure
is still secret, but this is the general scale.
The increase in over-all airpower will al-
low a much larger investment in tactical
air power, thus remedying our gravestj
weakness in the air. On the basis of cur-
rent scheduling, this great increment of
American strength will be completed by
In money terms, the agreement reached
by the Joint Chiefs will mean that about
$3,750,000,000 of the $5,000,000,000 supple-
mental defense appropriation recently voted
by Congress, will be allocated to Air Force
expansion, while much of the rest will go to
added Naval air strength. This will get the
In the two following fiscal years, the huge
capital outlays involved in the expansion of
the Air Force will add about $10,000,000,000
annually to the defense budget. And when
the period of capitol spending is at an end,
the Air Force expansion will result in a
regular annual bill for maintaining the arm-
ed forces of a little under $40,000,000,000, in-
stead of about $35,000,000,000, as previously
IT HAS LONG BEEN very obvious that Air
Force expansion would eventually be ap-
proved, in one form or another. The reason
is that the Air Force has not one, but two
main jobs-its own specialized job of build-
ing strategic air power, and its cooperative
job of providing tactical air support to the
ground forces. In the past, b'ecause of budge-
tary and other pressures, the problem of
tactical a'ir has been neglected.
When the present struggle started, the
air staff prepared a plan for a 163 group
air force, which was sponsored by Secre--r
tary of Air Thomas K. Finletter and Gen..
Hoyt S. Vandenberg. This first air force
plan involved an increase in strategic air
power even greater than the projected in-
creases for tactical air power. It is under-
stood that most of the saving in the less
ambitious agreed plan of the Joint Chiefs
has been achieved by holding down the
strategic air increases.

ATHENS-A visiting U.S. Senator recently pressed U.S. officials
here for the answer to the question of when Greece could stand
on her own feet without U.S. assistance.
He got, in reply, a question equally pointed. When, he was
asked, did he anticipate that the Communist threat would be
sufficiently reduced that the United States would not need strate-
gically situated Greece in the collective-security front against
It is conceded here that Greece understands her military value
and in a nice way makes the most of it. But her will to fight, her
heavy investment in her own defense, and her armies-which are real
and not just on paper-give her champions whose optimism is in re-
freshing contrast to the reserve, even dejection, noted among Ameri-
cans in some other countries of the western front.
Greece is the only country which has waged hot war against Fas-
cism, Nazism and Communism. She stood off Mussolini until the
Germans poured in on her flanks. She fought the Communists and
with timely British and then U.S. aid drove them out. This is one.
country, incidentally, where President Truman is the kind of folk,
hero that Roosevelt and Churchill used to be. Pictures of the
author of the Truman Doctrine adorn the tiniest village; here the
U.S. President and not General Eisenhower is the rod and staff.
But her military prowess and the upkeep of her armies have
meant a considerable sacrifice of her economic recovery. Infla-
tion which everywhere is at least a creeping menace is severe
here. The antique ground trod by the philosophers and writers
revered by western civilization is largely barren and long ne-
gleo'ted. Greece lacks the natural resources-coal, oil, timber-
vital to industry.
Generally speaking, ECA has concentrated on the improvement
of agriculture and hydroelectric projects. Marshes have been drained
and reclaimed for food production, modern soil conservation practices
have been introduced.
Any cut in economic aid which further depresses the low standard
of living of the Greeks will be greatly feared as a threat to their mili-
tary progress. The humanitarian reasons which impelled the United
States tohelp Greece still exist in full measure with the increased
pressure from the Communists they are supplemented by some stern
dictates of military necessity. Armies do not fight well when their
families are hungry, no matter what weapons are provided them.
When the inquiring senator got the reply, in effect, that so
long as the Communist threat endures at its present or greater
potency it will be necessary to furnish Greece economic assist-
ance, he was at least being treated honestly. If less had been
promised elsewhere, there might be less disillusionment in Con-
There is no conflict on this point between Ambassador John C.
Peurifoy, ECA administrator Roger Lapham and Maj. Gen. Robert T.
Frederick, who heads the Joint Military Aid group. Their excellent
cooperation is another of the bright spots in the Greek situation and
a very present help in dealing with the wily Greek politicians. The
military is riding high; ECA, having the money, can and sometimes
does put the State Department at a disadvantage; the eventual victim,
however, is invariably the taxpayer back home.

W ASHINGTON-Most amazing inside fact
about the recent clean-up of the San
Francisco Internal Revenue office is that
certain U.S. officials tried to indict the
young man who first pushed this clean-up.
He is Charles O'Gara, assistant U.S. At-
torney in San Francisco, who for more than
a year had tried to investigate and, if guilty,
prosecute some of the income tax officials
During all this period, it was no secret
to high officials that income tax wire-
pulling was suspected in northern Califor-
nia. And not only did these officials turn
a deaf ear about a house cleaning but they
attempted to indict the man who tried to
The story is almost unbelievable and
somewhat complicated. It goes back to Aug-
ust 1950 when U.S. Judge J. Waties Waring
of South Carolina, sitting temporarily in
California, smelled something wrong re-
garding a narcotics case and suggested to
young Assistant U.S. Attorney O'Gara tbhat
From that time-Aug. 5, 1950, until April
3, 1951-O'Gara tried to get a grand jury
hearing of suspected internal revenue ir-
regularities. All his efforts were blocked
-,-POLITICS AND TAXES-
MEANWHILE CERTAIN things going on
inside the San Francisco Internal Reve-
nue office obviously merited investigation,
merely on the face of them. Here are some
1. An internal revenue employees' fund
was collected from brewers, liquor dealers,
bookies, prostitutes and delinquent taxpay-
ers. One of the men involved in collecting
this fund was John A. Malone, brother of
William Malone, chairman of the Demo-
cratic Central Committee for San Francisco
and most potent Democratic wheel-horse in
2. John Malone, brother of the Democratic
bigwig, operated an accounting and income
tax office of his own, though he was also
assistant chief of the income tax division.
Malone has now been suspended.
3. Paul V. Doyle, chief office deputy of the
San Francisco Internal Revenue office, also
operated an accounting firm and gave in-
come tax advice on the side. He too has now
4. John Boland, chief field deputy, main-
tained a deputy collector, Jack Crowley, as
his cha'uffeur, was a close pal of Chief Col-
lector Smythe, Doyle and Malone. Last week'
he was suspended.
5. Ignatius Beresford, chief assistant in'
the wage and excise division, also operated
an income tax service in off hours. He has'
now been suspended.
6. Collector of Internal Revenue James
Smythe, now suspended for "incompetence,"
had admitted under cross-examination be-
fore the Kefauver committee that he had
been a delinquent taxpayer prior to his ap-
pointment to the job of collecting other
peoples' taxes in 1945. However, Smythe had
been the campaign manager for Democratic,
Sen. Sheridan Downey and deserved reward.
Furthermore, Mrs. Smythe was one of Dow-
-RUNAWAY GRAND JURY-
THE ABOVE FACTS were well known to
U.S. Treasury officials in Washington,
yet U.S. Assistant Attorney O'Gara was not
able, for approximately one year, to pro-
ceed with any investigation.
Finally, a forthright Grand Jury, head-
ed by Richard Seward, first of all indicted
James M. Mac Innes, an attorney in the
narcotics case presided over by Judge
Waring; and then called in Robert Mc-
Millan, chief assistant U.S. attorney, put
him under subpoena and asked him, among
other things, why the facts unearthed by
the Kefauver committee regarding Intern-
al Revenue had not been followed up.
Charles Davis, head of Internal Revenue's
local intelligence unit, was also examined.
Neither could give a satisfactory answer.
Consequently, the Seward runaway Grand
Jury directed O'Gara to continue this probe
before another federal grand jury headed by
John Taylor. On May 16, O'Gara attempted
to do so.
But suddenly U.S. Judge Lewis F. Good-
man called the grand jury before him, in-
structed it that it had no power to proceed.
Local political observers believe it may or
may not be significant that Judge Goodman
was appointed on the recommendation of
Senator Downey, close friend of Collector
James Smythe, whose office was being

-PERSECUTING THE PROSECUTOR-
M EANWHILE YOUNG Mr. O'Gara, the
idealistic assistant who had insisted on
going into these tax matters, suddenly found
himself under investigation. He was accused
of intimidating a government witness.
He was also informed on June 4 by his
boss, U.S. Attorney Chauncey Tramutolo.
The FBI then called on O'Gara, informed
him that on May 28 they had been ordered
by top officials in the Justice Department
in Washington to investigate him on a
complaint by Louise Haller, a notary pub-
lic, who testified in the Mac Innes nar-
A committee from the Seward Grand Jury
which had indicted Mac Innes immediately
came to O'Gara's defense, said there was no
question in their minds between O'Gara and
Miss Haller as to who was telling the truth.
Nevertheless, the case against O'Gara was
presented to the Grand Jury, and on July 3,
U.S. Judge Edward P. Murphy instructed the
Grand Jury to conclude its deliberations
within the next 48 hours.
On July 5, as the 48 hours were about to
expire, the jury asked U.S. Attorney Tramu-
tolo whether he wanted O'Gara indicted. His
reply, in effect, was "It's up to you."
O'Gara was not indicted. The Grand Jury
was all too familiar with his attempts to
clean up the San Francisco internal revenue
office-attempts now belatedly but fully jus-
(Copyright, 1951, by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.)
On the whole, the most striking aspect of
this crucial decision that the Joint Chiefs;
have taken is the manner of taking it. What
has happened represents a long step for-
ward on the hard road toward genuine uni-
fication of the services.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff themselves
plunged into the debate with far less venom
and obstinacy than in the past; and the
mere fact that they have been able to agree
upon such a furiously controversial subject
as air force expansion is proof of enormous
progress. Now for the first time, the rule is
recognized that the American people are on-
ly to pay for the armed forces they really
need for their security.
This is a great change from the old rule of
the Joint Chiefs, that increases in appro-
priations for any single service automatical-
ly led to increases in the appropriations of
the competing services, whether these were
needed or not. '
* * *
N THE MAIN, however, the agreement that
has now been reached signifies a triumph
for the civilian element of the defense estab-
lishment, and especially for Secretary of De-
fense Robert A. Lovett. The new climate in
which agreement of the Joint Chiefs became
possible was largely created by the hard work
of Lovett, and by the constant efforts of the
two coordinating committees composed re-
spectively of the service secretaries and un-
Moreover, the outlook for compromise
was very far from hopeful even at the
end of the period, some weeks ago, when
the Joint Chiefs hardly left their confer-
ence table for ten days on end. At that
time, their prospective disagreement was
reported to Secretary Lovett. He had al-
ready established another new principle,
that he would no longer accept a simple
"split paper," such as the Joint Chiefs
regularly produced in the past; but would
insist that a report of disagreement be
accompanied by a formal request from the
Joint Chiefs for a final settlement of their
differences by the civilian authority.
When Lovett quietly indicated that his
new principle would be insisted upon, the
Joint Chiefs went back to work and ham-
mered out their compromise. In every way
this is a great and reassuring event.

To the Editor:.
[ WOULD LIKE to call to the at-
tention of the student body a
matter which has been bothering
me greatly. Professor Dirk Struik
of M.I.T. has recently been indict-
ed by the State of Massachusetts
for conspiring to overthrow the
U.S. government and the Com-
monwealth of Mass." He has been
suspended from teaching pending
a decision in the case.
Having been graduated from
M.I.T., I had the pleasure of hear-
ing Professor Struik talk on
m a t h e m a t i c s, philosophy, etc.
Professor Struik is an excellent
mathematician, an unusual schol-
ar, and a fine man. He is well liked
by the students as he takes a sin-
cere interest in their problems and
lectures in a modest but very in-
teresting manner. His i suspension
will be a great loss to M.I.T.
Professor Struik is a Marxist
scholar and there is little dloubt
that this is the real reason for his
indictment. It is a shame that we
in the U.S. are indicting people
whose views are at present un-
popular. Ironically Struik came to
the U.S. from Holland to escape
But more important than Pro-
fessor Struik's personal hardships,
is the effect of this action on M.I.T.
M.I.T. is an institution where aca-
demic freedom is valued very
highly. Students have always felt,
'free to say what they pleased. But;
when one can be indicted for un-'
popular opinions can the students'
long remain free? Can any Univer-'
sity including Michigan escape the'
consequences of such hysterical
To the Editor:
IWAS very glad to note in Sun-
day's Daily. that at last the
Daily has found a reviewer who is
not possessed with that "sneering
superficiality" and "attempted so-
phistication" which typifies Daily
reviewers. Mr. Fazoo, obviously
new to the Daily staff, has a fresh
outlook, unsullied by hyper.critical
mud-slinging attitudes which defy
the theater to entertain or en-
lighten him. He is, at once, taste-
ful, responsible, and mature.
I strongly 'suspect that such re-
viewers as Mr. Gottlieb, whose ap-
proach stands in direct contrast
to the technique of Mrs Fazoo,
rarely if ever attend the local the-
aters. His reviews are based solely
on a predetermined bias. How else
can we explain his continued de-
precation of the American cine-
Congratulations, Fazoo! Let's
see more of your sensitive appre-
ciation of the unsurpassed excel-
lence of Hollywood productions.
