Laborites

THE ASCENDANCY OF "Nye" Bevan, the
recalcitrant left wing member of Eng-
land's Labor Party may not be too far be-
yond the horizon.
Two definite concessions to the obvious-
ly increasing power displayed by Bevan
and his following were made by party
leader Clement Attlee recently. First,
Attlee dropped his "toe the line" policy
toward Bevan, and second, he dropped
discussions in Commons on'both the ques-
tions of rearmament and social improve-
ment plans.
The "toe the line" policy said in effect
that either the discordant leader come back
into the fold or risk excommunication from
the party. Bevan's principle disagreement is
that, as a result of the American 'red' scare,
Britain has been allocating too much of its
money to rearmament at the expense of
weakening its social welfare program.
The rift between Bevan and Attlee is not
new. It began before the 1951 parliamentary
elections but was silenced and smoothed ov-
er for the sake of maintaining party unity.
That Bevan's power constituted a real threat
even at election time was evidenced by the
fact that not one of his more than fifty
followers was defeated for reelection. This
growing power was also shown in the elec-
tions to the Executive Committee of the
Party Conference in which Bevan and his
followers received the three highest number
of votes.
Another example of the schism present in
the party was revealed after the election.
This occurred on a vote of confidence on
Churchill's rearmament program in which
the Bevanites abstained from voting, al-
though the Parliamentary Labor Party had
instructed its members to vote for the pro-
gram.
The nature of the British party system
is such that party dissension cannot be
tolerated. The rift has been smoothed over
on the surface. But underneath a rumbling
can be heard from an ever increasing dis-
gruntled Bevan faction-a rumbling which
might eventually reveal itself in the over-
throwal of the present power in the Labor
Party and the rise of Bevan to a position
of recognized prominence.
As a result of this rise, Labor Party policy
would witness a greater shift to the left.
This would make it impossible for the party
to represent the widespread and divergent
views of a majority of the voters-a factor
which would inevitably cause a defection of
a large number of these voters and contin-
ued loss at the polls.

THERE, SHALL BE NO NIGHT, presented
by the Department of Speech.
HAV1NG PARED Shakespeare down to
about two hours running time in their
last venture, the Speech Department has
allowed Robert Sherwood to dawdle on for
over three in the current production, which
is concerned with the Finnish resistance to
the Russian invasion in 1939.
The length of the drama is unfortunate
particularly because Mr. Sherwood, a his-
torian and newspaperman, has exhausted
everything he is going to say about the
subject In about ten minutes. Pacifism
versus patriotism, expressed In these
terms is no longer an issue. It is old, it Is
tired, it is untimely, and despite the fact
that the cliche, "these men were not
heroes," is probably true; it is nonethe-
less a cliche. The play is undramatic be-
cause the war represents the menace, and
formidable as it is, no character achieves
anything through it except nobility, and
it is obvious they were all noble from the
start.
Perhaps the difficulty is that "there is an

undertone of tragedy in all this," as one
of Mr. Sherwood's cast remarks near the
end. Having found it so, the author feels
it necessary to exalt the physical evidence
with the second-hand poetry of Socrates, St.
John, Goethe, and "Auld Lang Syne," none
of which do quite as well as Mr. Sherwood's
own words in the declamatory speech in the
schoolhouse, but by that time, it is a little
late, and the fierce inspiration of everybody
concerned has been dissipated by the tedious
wordiness of everything that has gone be-
fore.
Assuring men in times of stress that they
are on the side of the good, the decent, and
the right is fine, but to inspire one must,
first of all, be fresh and unstudied. Being
on the side of the angels alone is not enough.
The performances in the play were uni-
formly good. They captured at least a
certain flavor, albeit one without sub-
stance. Nafe Katter, in the Ibsenesque
role of the Nobel Prize winner who dies
in battle, does well. Unfortunately, the
character requires little fundamental re-
adjustment from the start and Hatter
exerts himself only in the schoolhouse
speech, which is well done. Bette Ellis
returns to Play Production in the role of
his wife, a part to which she gives color
and feeling. Ed Griffin offers a very well
controlled interpretation of a world-
weary commentator.
But it goes on and on and on. By eleven

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

,

WASHINGTON-Senatorial colleagues fig-
ure there is more than meets the eye
behind the $10,000 transaction between Sen-
ator Brewster of Maine and Henry Grune-
wald, undercover lobbyist, wire-tap expert,
and tax fixer.
The Senator from Maine appeared brief-
ly before the King Subcommittee last
week and testified he had paid Grune-
wald $10,000 in order to cover up two
$5,000 contributions given to the primary
campaigns of Senators Nixon of California
and Young of North Dakota. Grunewald,
Brewster claimed, had served as the con-
duit to pass the money on to their cam-
paigns.
However, Senators Nixon and Young knew
nothing about the deal and were sore as
blazes when Brewster sprang his out-of-the-
blue testimony.
It would be a matter of mere routine
investigation for the King tax-fraud com-
mittee to have delved deeper into the strange
relations between the Senator from Maine
and Washington's most unusual tax-fixing
lobbyist. Nevertheless, Brewster was asked
few questions by the King Committee.
He was not asked why he had saved
Grunewald from a contempt citation by the
Senate; or why he had used Grunewald in a
wire-tapping deal; or whether he, as chair-
man of the Republican Committee on Sena-
torial Elections made it a practice to ignore
the rules of his party and contribute to one
Republican's nomination as against another
Republican.
Furthermore, Brewster will be asked none
of these questions later. It's against the
rules of the club. Members of Congress just
don't embarrass each other.
Other witnesses can be grilled, day after
day. They can be insulted and badgered
on the witness stand. They can be thrown
into jail if they refuse to answer questions.
But the unwritten law of Congress is that
you don't ask embarrassing questions of a
fellow member of Congress. The King com-
mittee has done an excellent job on other
matters, but it won't violate this rule.
STRANGE FRIENDSHIP
HOWEVER, since the public is entitled to
know all the facts regarding the men
who write the laws which the public has to
follow, it is altogether fair to point to some
highly significant facts in the relationship
between Senator Brewster and mystery-man
Henry Grunewald which the King Commit-
tee passed over.
Grunewald, who has refused to name
the source of about a quarter of a million
dollars, was such a familiar person around
Brewster's office that Brewster and staff
called him "Henry." He was also on
familiar terms with Pan American Air-
ways; for whom he admits "checking"
telephone wires.
Brewster also happens to be close to the
giant Pan American Airways combine-in
fact, has done so many favors for them
that he Is sometimes called "the Senator
for Pan American.
In 1946-47, Brewster was pushing his
I Paint What I See
A Ballad of Artistic Integrity
"WHAT DO YOU PAINT, when you paint
a wall?"
Said John D.'s grandson Nelson.
"Do you paint just anything there at all?
"Will there be any doves, or a tree in fall?
"Or a hunting scene, like an English hall?"
"I paint what I see," said Rivera.
"What are the colors you use when you
paint?"
Said John D.'s grandson Nelson.
"Do you use any red in the beard of a
saint?
"If you do, is it terribly red, or faint?
"Do you use any blue? Is it Prussian?"
"I paint what I paint," said Rivera.
"Whose is that head that I see on my
wall?"
Said John D.'s grandson Nelson.
"Is it anyone's head whom we know, at
all?
"A Rensselaer, or a Saltonstall?

"Is it Franklin D.? Is it Mordaunt ,Hall?
"Or is it the head of a Russian?"
"I paint what I think," said Rivera.
"I paint what I paint, I paint what I see,
"I paint what I think," said Rivera,
"And the thing that is dearest in life
to me
"In a bourgeois hall is Integrity;
"However.. . *
"I'LL TAKE out a couple of people drinkin'
"And put in a picture of Abraham Lin-
coln.
"I could even give you McCormick's

"And still not make my art much
cheaper.
"But the head of Lenin has got to stay
"Or my friends will give me the bird today
"The bird, the bird, forever."
"It's not good taste in a man like me,"

"But I know what I like to a large degree
"Though art I hate to hamper;

"chosen instrument" bill to abolish competi-
tion between different U.S. Airlines Over-
seas, putting all of them in the hands of
one company instead. Pan American wanted
this bill passed, was lobbying vigorously for
it, figured Pan Am would be the "chosen in-
strument" to handle all U.S. air traffic over-
seas.
But Trans-World Airlines, headed by
Howard Hughes, was opposed. Hughes
figured that under the Brewster bill TWAI
would be amalgamated with Pan Ameri-
can. He favored free American competi-
tion.
Brewster, whose business was to legislate
not negotiate private business deals, made
an amazing approach to Hughes, asked him
to sell out to Pan- American. Hughes re-
fused.
STRANGE INVESTIGATION
BUT BREWSTER was also chairman-in
1947-of the powerful Senate Investigat-'
ing Committee, formerly under Sen. Harry
Truman. And with the Republicans con-
trolling Congress in 1947, Brewster began
a probe of Howard Hughes. Many people
felt that it had all the earmarks of a black-
mail probe to force Hughes to do business
with Pan American Airways.
At about this time, Brewster also stoop-
ed to the un-American act of having the
Washington police tap the telephone wires
of Howard Hughes and his attorneys at a
Washington hotel.
Most of this came out during the wire-tap
investigation by the Senate District of Co-
lumbia Committee in the summer of 1950.
This was where Grunewald was voted a con-
tempt citation for refusing to answer ques-
tions, and where Brewster saved him from
going to jail,
The amazing thing about the wire-tap
on Hughes' telephone was that it was
done by the Washington police, with
Brewster and Grunewald operating in the
background. The police officers who ap-
plied the tap and listened in testified that
reports went to Grunewald. They were
also instructed to listen especially for in-
formation about airplane deals.
The use of these Washington policemen
occurred in a free democracy, not in a
police state such as Russia or Argentina.
And the man who got them assigned to the
job was none other than the senior senator
from Maine.

NEVER TOO LATE, 32nd Annual Union
Opera.
SACKINGTHE pretention which helped
spoil the 1950 and 1951 productions,
"Never Too Late" is the most enjoyable
Union Opera of recent years. With the ex-
perience gained in last night's performance,
the cast will probably relax and lose their
stiffness and be even more entertaining to-
night and tomorrow.
For the first time in several years the
director (Fred Evans) has understood and
exploited the peculiarities of an all-male,
college production. To begin with, the Union
Opera is a farce, taking off not only on its
particular material but upon a Broadway
musical as well.
Past Director William Holbrook never rea-
lized this fact. His "girls" were made up to
look exactly like girls and act like girls.
This not only defeated the purpose of put-
ting wolves in sheep's clothing but it always
made me feel a bit uneasy. Those "girls"
and their actions, were just a little too real
to assure the audience of the normality of
men who were portraying them.
In last night's production this situation
was corrected. One was always aware
that the "girls" were men and the result-
ing lampoon of the weaker sex's foibles
was steadily amusing.
Also, instead of trying to turn out a
smoothly professional show, Evans exploited
the enthusiasm and vitality of his amateur
cast well. Occasionally, however, the spon-
taneity was carried a bit too far. The spe-
cialty act of footballers Green, Zatkoff and
Stribe was so "unrehearsed" it was raggei.
The musical score was generally good. I
especially liked "Can't Imagine," "Some-
thing Out of Nothing," and Midnight Train.'"
"Can't Imagine," in fact, has one of those
tunes you carry out of the theatre with you.
The chorus, however, could use some more
practice and every now and then even the
soloists ran away from the orchestra.
The cast handled their parts compe-
tently, although Lloyd Evans' burlesque
on the "average housewife" Jenny Jenks)
became too energetic at times. Bill
Schreiner as Maude Hanrahan and Jim
McGlincy portraying Uncle Jack were es-
pecially good.
On the debit side of "Never Too Late":
First, musical plots, though traditionally
weak, should never be as anemic as this. At
several important points in the story, there
appeared to be absolutely no reason for the
characters behaving as they did.
Second, though I am not one to cavil at
bawdy jokes, I must insist that they at

We are sincerely sorry to dis-
appoint those few people who did
make plans to go on our trip. More
sorry are we to have created any
animosity in regard to the dis-
criminatorynproblem; certainly
the last thing we wanted to do
was to lend any favor to the de-
plorable restrictive conditions
down south. That we did so un-
wittingly was unfortunate and not{
to our credit.
We would like to thank the'
Daily, which was extremely co-
operative; and the various units,
and to the Senior Class Comm.
who also tried to stimulate in-
terest, all to no avail.

To the Editor:
IN RECENT articles in the Daily
wita reference to the swimming
team championship won by Ohio
State, there were many snide re-
marks about the number of Ha-
waiian members of their squad.
The implication was clear that
there was something unfair about
recruiting athletes from so far
away. How sour can the grapes
get? In yesterday's Daily you listed
the varsity "M" winners in three
sports - hockey, wrestling and
gymnastics. Fifteen of these menI
were from states other than
Michigan, fifteen from Canada,
and only six from the State of1
Michigan. As a matter of fact,
if you want to put the records
on the line, during the season
1950-51 Ohio State issued varsity
letters to 247 men in 11 different
sports. Of these, 211 were from
the State of Ohio. I doubt ser-
iously if that percentage can be
matched by Michigan, I personally
have no objection to varsity ath-
letes from outside the state, and
I love sports and enjoythe rivalry
between these two schools, but let's
be careful not to let the pot call
the kettle too black.

FOLLOWING is the content of a
letter which a majority of per-
sons at Nakamura Co-Operative
House voted to send to Mr. Bob
Golten, Special Trips Chairman.
of the Wolverine Club:
"Recently we received a letter

Blood.
To the Editor:
THERE HAS been a good bit of
criticism about the lack of stu-
dent interest and participation
in the Campus Blood Drive. I
would like to air a few facts con-
cerning just one house that took
part in this drive.
In our house a total of thirteen
men pledged a pint of blood to
the drive. Of these, I have con-
tacted six to find out how much
action followed the signing of their
pledge. Not one of the six received
any notification of when or where
to donate his blood. Three of the
six men finally went, on their
own, over to the South Quad and
gave their blood. It took one of
these three men three phone calls
to the Office of Student Affairs
to find out where his parent's
permission card was, before he
could donate blood.
Since we were told that we
would be notified when and where
to report, I feel that at least part
of the responsibility for the
seemingly low turn out should be
placed rn those persons who
failed to follow up the pledges
with the assignment of appoint-
ment.
