The Eternal Pseudonyin

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP

A FEW days ago, a letter appeared in this
column from gaentleman calling him-'
self Henry Gerard, the Eternal Pseudonym.
Stating that he had been protecting people
who were forced to adopt a pseudonym be-
cause society would not give them .freedom'
otherwise, Mr. Gerard said, "As long as
there are restrictions on the freedom of
thought, I will be around."
I should like to take this opportunity to
say that I concur heartily with Mr. Ger-
ard's sentiments. So fine and logical is his
reasoning, that I would like to invite him
to join with those others of us (some of
whom, regrettably, he neglected to men-
tion in his note) in some sort of an or-
ganization.
We might call it the "Artful Dodger Club."
Other persons I know of who might be in-
terested are Willy Sutton, John Dillinger,
and Al Capone, all of whom found them-
selves required to employ pseudonyms in
order to pursue their ideals. Although we
might have to do a bit of soliciting, I am
NeaC usCl
THIS WEEK, some two hundred students
of Philosophy 63, The Philosophic
Foundations of Communism, Fascism and
Democracy, taught by Professor Abraham
Kaplan, received a mimeographed letter
signed the Ralph Naefus Club, Communist
Party.
This letter brought up many issues: it
discussed the relative merits of Marxism
and Jeffersonian democracy; it discussed
the accuracy of the bourgeois view of
Communism; it discussed the relation of
theory to practice; it attacked Professor
Kaplan's right to make value judgments.
But the issue that was not discussed is
the vital problem underlying such an at-
tack: what is the functio of a University
lecturer?
It is admittedly absurd to suppose that the
purpose of the lectuier is that of a political
speaker, attempting to persuade his class
to believe, to follow. But it is equally asinine
to assume his purpose to be that of an en-
cyclopedia, attempting to present the class
with facts, theory, and some illustrations,
arranged in something approximating alpha-
betical order.
In a comparative philosophy course when
theory is presented, a comparative, presen-
tation ought to be made. When facts are
presented, a comparative presentation of
the facts ought to be made. And finally,
after the groundwork has been completed
one can sit back and calculate the degree
to which the facts, correspond with the
theory.
To come down to the particular case,

sure we can drum up a few more members
through examination of police files.
I admit that this society might have
trouble in being recognized by the Univer-
sity. But since our very function would be
at stake, I see no reason why we might
not slip a little farther underground-all
adopt new pseudonyms, perhaps. We
might choose them out of the Student
Directory, because they would sound more
legitimate that way. Then we could do
practically anything we wanted to, in the
way of holding meetings, staging ban-
quets, and a whole series of worthy pro-
jects.
Our principle is an ancient one, involv-
ing an essential human inclination: to be
subtle when possible, and when impossible,
to dodge artfully. To develop and free this
inclination from the taint of public censure
is a sadly neglected sphere of research, and
gives reason and purpose enough to the
organization of the "Artful Dodger Club."
-Chuck Elliott
Cub Letter
Professor Kaplan is at the present con-
cerning himself with theory. He has been
weighing the values of Marxism, Fascism
and Jeffersonian democracy. After evalu-
ating these he will arrive at a value judg-
meit. The formulation of such a judg-
ment is not, as the Ralph Naefus Club
seems to think, an evil thing. Nor is it
merely the lecturer's privilege to formu-
late such a judgment. It is his duty as a
philosopher and as a teacher to do so. For
all the presentation of facts in the world
will mean absolutely nothing if they are
directed toward a goal which may not be
worth achieving.
Professor Kaplan will point out the facts,
and their relation to the theory, after he
has completed the clarification of that
theory. It is hardly justifiable to criticize
a course, when it is scarcely one quarter
over, on the grounds that it has not pre-
sented an aspect which is scheduled for
discussion during its later weeks.
I have not here touched on the points
made in the Ralph Naefus Club's letter. An
editorial which does not allow for debate
(as does the discussion section of a philo-
sophy class) is not the place for theoretical
bickering. However, if the members of the
Ralph Naefus Club are willing to step from
behind the anonymity of their organization's
name, I will discuss both the factual and/or
theoretical aspects of communism, fascism
and democracy publicly or privately, as they
might wish. For it is in informal and student
inspired debates that political questions
shonld be discussed.

ON THE
W ashingto Mery-Go-Round

WASHINGTON - There are more ways
than one for the Communists to gain
control of South-East Asia. which would
confront the Western world with a worse
disaster even than the loss of China. One
way is by simple open aggression against
Indo-China, which is the key to South-East
Asia. Another way is for the French, who
have been carrying the brutal burden of the
war in Indo-China for six years now, simply
to throw up their hands in despair and to
decide to cut their losses there.
The first possibility chiefly worried the
American policy makers up to a few weeks
ago. It is the second possibility which has
now become the subject of anguished con-
cern, especially since the recent French
crisis, the most dangerous since the war.
Already, in influential French government
and military circles, there is much talk of
reaching a "settlement' with Indo-China's
Communist chief, Ho Chi-Minh, and his
Chinese Communist backers. No one in
Paris is quite so wishful as to believe that
Ho Chi-Minh and the Chinese Communists
can somehow be persuaded simply to call off
the Indo-Chinese war. But it is significant
that the kind of deal which the Communists
might actually accept is being discussed in
some detail.
What is being discussed is a settlement
superficially comparable to the proposed
Korean truce. The French would retire to
an easily defensible pass called the "Col des
Nuages," well down the Indo-Chinese coast,
above Hue, and near the Sixteenth Parallel.
Hanoi, and the vital, rich delta area. would
be turned over to the Communists, while
Saigon and the South remained in French
and Nationalist hands.
*' * * *
THUS THE terrible drain of the Indo-
Chinese war could be reduced, and most
of the 130,000 or so French troops in Indo-
China could be sent back to strengthen
North Africa and France itself. This would,
of course, constitute in itself another major
Communist victory, with worldwide reper-
cussions. But the greatest danger is that
Laos, now safely non-Communist, would be
sacrificed, and, most of the long border be-
tween Indo-China and feeble Siam exposed.
In brief, any such deal with the Commun-
ists would in all likelihood be the beginning
of the end for South-East Asia, and ulti-
mately, no doubt, for all Asia.
Yet it is not enough to give vent, like
Sen. Tom Connally, to a spasm of fury
against the French. It is much more
sensible to examine dispassionately the
heavy pressures for peace-at-any-price in
Indo-China for which any French govern-
ment is now inevitably exposed.
In the first place, the French are currently
spending well over a billion dollars annually
on the Indo-Chinese war. In the past they
have spent more -on this war than the total
of American aid to France. And this huge
drain has been a chief cause of France's
endless series of financial crises.
* * * *
IN THE SECOND PLACE, the French army
is more dependent than any othe amy
on its small hard core of professional sol-
diers, the great bulk of whom are now pinned
down in the Indo-Chinese war, half a world
away. Until quite recently, the French were
willing, though by no means eager, to shoul-
der this twin burden. But, in the French
view, the N.A.T.O. decision to rearm Ger-
many has changed everything.
For if the Indo-Chinese war continues
to drain French military strength, then
the French believe that the Germans are
sure to dominate all Western Europe. This
is a prospect which sends a shiver up
every French spine; as one Frenchman put
it, "France is more important to us than
Indo-China."
There is, no doubt, an element of shrewd
French bargaining in these arguments, which
have been unofficially but clearly conveyed
to the American policy makers. Even so,
there is much logic as well, and it is no
wonder that this country's top policy mak-

ing body, the National Security Council, has
been painfully but unsuccessfully wrestling
with the problem thus posed.
One partial solution has already been
canvassed and in part put into effect.-
This is to take much of the strain off the1
French by training and equipping Nation-
alist native troops as rapidly as possible.
Some forty battalions have already been
trained, but this is not enough to make a
real difference. Plans have been drawn
up to put a full eighty battalions in the
field by the end of this year, and 160 or so
by the end of 1953.
But the French do not have the resources
to do this job. As for this country, the cry
for economy is already loud, and we are in
the midst of a campaign year. Really to
secure South-East Asia would require some-
thing comparable to the Greek-Turkish aid
program, but even more expensive, and the
mere notion of putting anything of the
sort up to Congress is downright terrifying
to the policy makers. So the chances are
that any really decisive effort will be put
off until after November, in the hope that
the French will somehow hang on in the
meantime. But the fact might as well be
faced that the risk of another great Com-

Art in America . ...
To the Editor:
MISSWinn's editorial, "Art in
America" abounds in naivi-
tee, and consequently, resolves it-
self in blind trust looking toward
government to remedy the ills of
the American artist.
After sketchily reviewing the
painter's plight, she writes, "The
argument against . .. subsidization
of art . . . is that arbitrary stan-
dards would be set up ... essen-
tial freedom . . . stifled." She
then goes on, "this limitation is
exactly what is needed."
In lauding subsidization to give
the artist security and a place in
society, Miss Winn is quite willing
to let the government set the stan-
dards.
This situation would be intoler-
able from the artist's point of
view.
In the first place, this abdtrac-
tion of "government" leads one
to believe that government is a
great, wise, and benevolent god.
This is not the case. We are gov-
erned by ordinary people, few
above average in intelligence, and
fewer still who possess an under-
standing of art.
It would be these people who
would set the standards. Since
there would be no comprehension
of art these artificial standards
would produce: rigidity, conform-
ity and mediocrity. This is exact-
ly what the artist, and Miss Winn
are striving to avoid.
Miss Winn continues, "Once
the standard has a chance" (what
this "standard" is, is not clear)
"deviation will be able to assert
itself." This is not necessarily
true. In fact, we may assume
exactly the opposite.
Since government will be spend-
ing the money, any "deviant ar-
tist" will be considered a poor
"financial risk," who will be forced
to. conform or lose government
benefits.
It is pointed out that most
"great artists" were not products
of formal "schools," but rather re-
volted against the prevailing sys-
tem to find freedom of expression.
Who can revolt against govern-
ment control and be successful?
The solution, at present, does
not rest in government subsidies,
but rather, in popular education,
leading to an 'enlightened' govern-
ment. The artist should not be
'tolerated' as he is today, but re-
spected and appreciated.
It will only be at that "far off'

in May when the fishing was get-
ting good in the Sierras, most of
us thought it was pretty fine. We
pitied all of the easterners who
patronized our "resort industry."
But we didn't reckon with the
lobbyists of the "industry" and
their smoke-filled rooms in Sacra-
mento. Nor did the happily-coop-
erating secondary school teachers.
For of course it was these schem-
ers, who were looking for cheap
student labor for their "industry,"
who wrecked our idyll. It wasn't
the conservative educational asso-
ciations at all.
Well, live and learn. But I can
still remember that cake at Christ-

WASHINGTON-Certain Defense Depart.
ment officials and Sen. McCarran's
Subversive Committee are planning a. new
move against newspapermen who have cri-
ticized them. They plan to drag out the.
espionage act and claim that the publica-
tion of certain stories was harmful to the
United States and violated the 1917 Espion-
age Act.
This act is so broad and so loosely word-
ed that such conscientious newspapers as
the New York Times could easily violate
it on an average of twice a week.
For instance, the United Press reported
March 1 that the Air Force was equipping
jet fighter-bombers to deliver small atom
bombs against Russia, further reported
where the jet squadrons were based at
Langley, Va., and Sandia, New Mexico; also
named the plane as the F-84-G, told how
they would be fueled in the air and how
bases later would be set up in Western Eu-
rope or North Africa.
The UP dispatch was published in the
New York Times March 1, and next day the
Associated Press carried a similar story.
While the dispatch did not violate the vol-
At The State ..
The Girl on the Bridge, starring Hugo Haas
and Beverly Michaels.
T IS DIFFICULT to justify such movies
as this. The acting is not the worst in
the world, the plot could have been exciting
and sympathetic, and, at least, the photog-
raphy might have been striking. But some-
hbw either nobody cared, or else the direct-
ing was so terrible as to be worthless.
Hugo Haas, who puts in a fair perform-
ance as an old immigrant who takes to
bed and board a pretty unwed mother,
wrote the script, produced it, and directed
it. Perhaps this is where the trouble lies.
Such a versatile performance is a show-
off stunt at best, and should certainly not
be attempted except in most unusual sit-
uations. The script never had a chance,
though ,much could have been done by
either making the girl less saintly or the
old man more pathetic. The directing
was unimaginative and without any unity

untary code of censorship practiced in the
recent war, the Espionage Act is so broad
that it could easily be considered a viola-
tion today.
Again, on March 7, the AP carried a
story from Korea that U.S. helicopters and
destroyers had picked up 22 U.N. pilots
downed in January around the besieged
port of Wonsan. Undoubtedly this dispatch
was cleared by censors in Korea. If not,
under the elastic Espionage Act, it might
have been a violation on the ground that
it gave information to enemy by which
they could come back after a raid and
shoot our pilots in the water.
However, members of Senator McCarran's
committee who seek to turn the Espionage
Act against their press critics might also
examine section 793 (F) containing an in-
teresting provision which could be used
against Pentagon officials-especially Gen.
Robert Grow, author of the dynamite-laden
diary advocating war, which fell into Rus-
san hands.
Secton 793 (F) states that "whoever, be-
ing entrudted with or having lawful posses-
sion or control of any document, writing
. . . . note or information relating to the
national defense, through gross negligence
permits same to be removed from its proper
place .... or to be lost, stolen, abstracted
shall be fined not more than $10,000 or
imprisoned for not more than ten years or
both."
Gen. Grow, who permitted his diary to
be stolen and photostated, has lost the
-United States millions in propaganda all
over the world, so far no punishment has
been given him.
It will be interesting to see whether the
Espionage Act is a two-way street or is only
to be used against the press.

same stage as during the tail end of
the Hoover administration when Democratsj
were so determined to upset long years of
Republican-rule that almost everything Hoo-
ver did was voted down.

years of Democratic rule, has proposed sev-
eral excellent reforms and some good ap-
pointees, among them putting tax collectictl

To the Editor:
NSA is misunderstood! The cor-
rect relation of the National
Student Association to the Michi-
gan students is unknown because
NSA is not publicized enough.
However, this lack of publicity is
due directly to NSA's position on
this campus.
The SL Cabinet acts as our NSA
delegation; therefore, SL and NSA
are synonymous in their local or-
ganization. That is, why little is
heard about NSA per se. Most of
the benefit from it is utilized at
the committee stage of the Stu-
dent Legislature. This results in
an SL policy, and complete under-
estimation of the services of NSA.
More specifically this is what I
mean. USNSA has a legislative
clearing house which recently sent
SL the essential features of the
Universal Military. Training Bill.
This was referred to the Culture
an(1 Education Committee for
study. At this point NSA became
SL. A freshman orientation book-
let will soon be sent to NSA affil-
iated schools in the Michigan Re-
gion. This publication will be used
for improving orientation by the
local student government. Like-
wise, the credit will go to the stu-
dent government and not to NSA.
NSA provides valuable informa-
tion for developing and improving
leadership training programs, hu-
man relations, academic freedom,
student government finance, stu-
dent-faculty relations, and;inter-
national affairs. These things
clearly aid the student govern-
ment to aid the student.
Another service provided by a
regional and national organization
like NSA is the elimination of re-
search duplication. Regional and
National sub-commissiops conduct
surveys and distribute the results
thus saving many student govern-
ments much time and labor.
When evaluating NSA it is Ps-
sential to remember that it is
NSA's service to SL that serves the
students.

IN THE March 8th issue of the
Michigan Daily there ap-
peared an article on the Blood
Drive which stated "Stockwell
with Gombrg House and Jordan
Hall with Allen-Rumsey have
formed brother - sister dorm
teams." This wording implies that'
Jordan and Allen-Rumsey are
brother-sister dorms, which is
not the case. Jordan Hall is sister
dorm to Van Tyne House in the
South Quad and Allen-Rumsey is
brother dorm to Kleinstueck House
in Alice Lloyd Hall. However, Jor-

have formed a team, during the
blood drive, in an effort to in-
crease interest in the campaign.
We hope that the publication of
this letter will correct a wrong
impression.
