FOUR FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 1952

By CHUCK ELLIOTT
rFHE UNIVERSITY is to be congratulated
on its handling of the visit of Queen
Juliana yesterday morning. With a proper
amount of pomp, decorum, and attendance
to protocol, the queen of the Netherlands
was efficiently introduced, honored, and dis-
patched once more on her way around the
country. Close planning was especially evi-
dent in the precision waih which events
took place, right on schedule, and with a
minimum of wasted time.
In amongst the deserved praise, how-
ever, I can't help but feel a small note of
disappointment. Though the intent of
the visit was to introduce the queen to the
University, and, reciprocally, to present
her with an honorary degree, the intro-
duction was rather strictly limited to fa-
culty and administration. Students were
given the opportunity to view royalty
climbing into cars, climbing out of cars,
and walking (hurriedly).
This may seem like a petty gripe. On this
particular occasion, with the short space of1
time allowed for the visit, and the need for
economy of movement, it might conceivably
have been justified. On the other hand,
however, it would have been an easy matter
to have the convocation in Hill Auditorium,
for instance, instead of Rackham, which
allowed only a very few students to attend.
There was a large crowd milling around out-
side that never had a chance to get in. The
fact that students were more or less ex-
cluded was pointed up when speakers failed
even to address "the students" in the begin-
ning of their talks, when everybody else,
from the regents to the faculty, were men-
tioned.
There has been a good bit of talk lately
about how to make good alumni for the
University. A special meeting was held a
few weeks ago, at which members of the
various honorary societies were asked to
become interested in the problem and to
Join with the University in solving it. One
of the points which has always seemed of
utmost importance to me is that there
should be as close an alliance as possible
of the students and all the other elements
under the name of University. In other
words, (and everybody has heard them
often enough) the University of Michi-
gan is not the Administration, nor the fa-
culty, nor the students-but all of them,
existing as a group.
If this maxim (and it may as well be called
that) had been followed, even in spirit, when
arrangements, were made for Juliana's visit,
a distinct step would have been taken to-
ward making stude1ts feel that they are a
part of the University. At any rate, it cer-
tainly would have given the queen a much
better idea of what a big Midwestern uni-
versity is really like. It is details of this sort
which will eventually integrate the Michi-
gan campus into a unit with inherent loyal-
ties, worthwhile loyalties which will carry
on, as the Alumni Association wishes, long
after students are out of school.

NIGHT EDITOR: CARA CHERNIAK
EISENHOWER by John Gunther (Har-
pers & Brothers).
'TH E MAN and the symbol" are the words
in small print at the bottom of the

front jacket and seem to well state the
theme of John Gunther's latest book "Eisen-
hower." Reading time two and a half hours,
the book presents a portrait and analysis of
the man most in the public eye today.
"The man" is presented by Gunther
with the spirit of "here is an honest pa-
triot." Eisenhower is described as usually
wearing a plain uniform (seldom with
decorations), having a confident but hum-
ble manner, and radiating friendliness.
The author makes a short biting contrast
of Douglas MacArthur's many uniform
changes.
Eisenhower's accomplishments are extoll-
ed at some lengths. Showing awe at the
general's feat of writing Crusade in Europe
in seven weeks, Gunther says-"it is a con-
siderable feat for even a professional auth-
or." Ike's success as Supreme Commander
of SHAPE in France shows that the general
was doing something concrete about pre-
paration against the Communist threat in
Europe, while Washington politicians were
just talking.
Gunther holds the general's strongest skill
to be his handling of people. Without Eisen-
hower to consolidate and conciliate the mili-
tary genius of the Allied Powers in World
War II it seems quite possible, to the auth-
or, that the war could have taken a differ-
ent turn than it did in 1944. A list is made
of events that show the general's genius for
inspiring confidence and producing great
amounts of work from people.
"The symbol" of Eisenhower is alluded to
by Gunther as what he means to the Ameri-

Inconsistent Lecture

"What's Going On Down There Among The Mortals?"

SENATOR TAFT'S speech in Hill Auditor-
ium Wednesday was certainly an "edu-
cational" one. The audience was educated
to the fact that Taft is a little man with
little ideas. But there can also be no doubt
that it was a political rally.
This has serious implications regarding
the Lecture Committee and the Regents
ruling regulating speakers. The rule says
that the "regulations are designed to serve
the educational interests of the academic
community rather than the political in-
terests of any party or candidate."
The committee then, feeling free to inter-
pret as loosely as possible, allowed Taft to
politic, saying that a speech by a presiden-
tial candidate is certainly of educational
value.
Few will deny that this is so-that politics
is a part of education. Nor can anyone who
was at the speech deny that the Lecture
Committee acted in the interests of the stu-
dents, since Hill Auditorium was jammed
packed with more people than normally
turn out for any University function..
However the committee chose to violate

the Regents' rule since the speech certainly
served the interests of a political candidate.
That the committee was forced into this em-
barassing position clearly shows how un-
necessary and ambiguous the regulation is.
To avoid such situations in the future and
to open the way for continued political
speeches the only feasable solution would be
at least to get rid of the ruling pertaining to
political candidates.
But as long as it remains, the commit-
tee acts unlawfully and unethically in
ignoring the provisions of the rule. There
is something curious in a university set
up when students are expected to con-
form to the letter of the law, and yet ad-
ministrators and faculty members are left
free to circumvent the rules.
If the Lecture Committee actually be-
lieves that political speeches are education-
al, and they apparently do, they should work
with the students to dump the rule and thus
avoid having to in fact disobey the laws of
the University.

Report from Vienna --III

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last in a series of
articles written in vienna by former Daily music
critic Harvey Gross.
VIENNA IS A CITY without politics, pas-
sion, or real intellectual life; the cul-
tural revival, so much in evidence in Italy
and Germany, has not taken hold in this
great capital of Mitteleuropa. There are
economic reasons for Vienna's continued
lag, and not all culture is dead: music, es-
pecially opera, flourishes here. But Viennese
apathy is not only a matter of economics;
it is also a matter of taste and tempera-
ment. People do not dress poorly, they dress
badly; Austrian dullness is immediately ap-
parent when you return from a trip to
Italy.
There is little political interest because
partisan politics, either pro-United States
or pro-Soviet, seem equally futile to the
Viennese. In either case they stand to
lose. This political indifference is most
noticeable in the so-called "peace" demon-
strations. At certain intervals the Rus-
sians force workers and other citizens to
march around the Ring; however, the po-
litical "enthusiasm" displayed is less than
lukewarm. The Viennese sense of propri-
ety is deep-grained and excessive; no Vi-
ennese really likes to expose himself to the
public eye. People stare at you if you so
much as whistle in the streets. So the
Russian-staged peace rallies are flops: a
disorganized crowd marches around the
Ring laughing sheepishly and waving at
their friends; they listen patiently to Ilya
Ehrenberg or the Dean of Canterbury, and
then go quietly home. Communism is de-
finitely not a success in Vienna
I should like to talk a bit about the uni-.
versity here. As Americans we came to Eur-
ope with the best of intentions and the
kindliest feelings. Like most people of our
education and interests, we had always
thought of Europe as the great storehouse
of culture and the great stronghold of spir-
ituaLvalues. Materialism was only an Ameri-
can phenomenon. Of course we knew in our
minds that the war had brought about great
and devastating changes, that life in Europe
was lived on the existence level. But cer-
tain myths still persisted: that university
education was better, that the students were
serious, interested, and dedicated in a way
that American students never are.
It was with a certain disappointment
that we learned the truth-at least that
part of the truth represented by the uni-
versity here. Many of us had attended
first-rate graduate schools in the United
States: Yale, Princeton, Michigan, Calif-
ornia, and others. Nothing resembling the
educational outlook, the intellectual vigor,
or the climate of ideas was present here.
I do not speak of libraries and facilities
for research because these are directly re-
lated to state economy, and .Austria is a
poor country. Yet the least one can ex-
pect of a university is that it offers an
opportunity for the interchange of ideas,
and that it provides a stimulating atmos-
phere .in which critical intelligence and
free enquiry can flourish. The autocratic
system of European university education
sets up an inflexible social barrier be-
tween the professor and the student; they
belong to different strata of society. As

students we have been made to feel this
distinction in every possible way.
The notion of democratic education has
scarcely penetrated this part of Europe. Ac-
tive student participation in the processes of
education is unknown; the lecture system,
that Iron Maiden devised for the inflicting
of ideas, is as firmly entrenched as it was a
hundred years ago. There is, however, one
important and active group which is at-
tempting to break the reactionary grip of
the university. The Austrian College and The
Research Institute for European Contem-
porary Studies (Forschungsinstitut fur Eur-
opaische Gegenwartskunde) sponsors semi-
nars, lectures, and discussion groups de-
voted to the most recent trends in litera-
ture, the arts, politics, and social research.
The founders of this organization were
members of the very small Austrian resist-
ance movement, and their humanistic out-
look is a clean current in a stagnant swamp
of nostalgic ancestor worship (the good old
days of Franz Josef), neo-fascism, and de-
funct social-democracy.
* a a
AN AUSTRIAN FRIEND told us that Franz
Kafka only knew the half of it; his
vision of bureaucracy and the police state
depicted in The Castle and The Trial is not
nearly as terrifying as the actuality. Austria
is the bureaucratic state par excellence, and
everywhere one turns there are forms to be
filled out, police stations to visit, and red
tape to untangle. Americans, I believe, are
fundamentally hostile to cops, and nothing
irritates one so must as having to report to
a police station.
I got into a furous argument with a
police afficial because I refused, on princ-
ciple, to tell what my religion was. It
seemed to me that that was none of their
business; the cop insisted it was. What
filled me with fury was the thought that
the police should have in their hands such
dangerous knowledge, and the thought that
it must have been supremely simple for
the Nazis to conduct their pogroms anl
liquidate the Jews in Vienna, All that was
necessary was to march into a police
station, and there, neatly filed, was com-
plete information on all the Jews in that
particular district: where they lived, what
they did, and so on.
Part of our disenchantment with Austrian
life can be directly related to several im-
portant psychological differences, and to
American innocence which makes relations
with many Europeans so disillusioning. Most
Americans are friendly, at least on the level
of casual relations, and are naive enough to
expect friendly treatment. Of course there
is no reason for Europeans to love Ameri-
cans at this time and in an occupied coun-
try; speaking more generally, there is in
many parts of Europe a violent xenophobia
which is directed not only at Americans, but
toward anyone who doesn't speak the native
language. This is especially true in Fran
and Switzerland. We have become accus-.
tomed to the dirty look which begins at
your shoes and ends in a fixed, ugly, and
curious stare. Your shoes immediately give
you away as an American. We ourselves have
learned to stare at people's shoes; it is a di-
verting game to play on long trolley rides.

To The Editor:
THE FOLLOWING is a copy of
a resolution adopted by the
Young Democrats:
As all of us well know, ourdpres-
ent able President and leader of
the Democratic party has with-
drawn from the forthcoming cam-
paign for the Democratic Presi-
dential Nomination. All of us com-
mend his administration and wise
policies of the last seven years.
His announced withdrawal gives
us time to consider a worthy suc-
cessor both as to the presidency as
well as to the leadership of the
party. Believing that this task,
that of finding a successor to Pres-
ident Truman, is the main work
of the party in the coming three
months, the University of Michi-
gan Young Democratic Club here-
by exhorts its members to form
committees ...
To further the candidacies of
those men its members feel can
best fill the staggering job of the
presidency of the United States;
To carry on the great principles
of our President and of our party.
Only in this way can our Presi-
dent enjoy his well earned retire-
ment, knowing that the party and
the country are in good hands.
We regret President Truman's
decision not to run again, we hope
he will reconsider his decision, but
we feel that his decision must be
respected. We sympathize with his
desire to enjoy a well deserved
rest from the tremendous burdens
he has faithfully borne as both
President of our country and as
leader of the whole free world.
Scarcely any other President has
been faced with so many prob-
lems and has met them so honestly
and humanly. We take this op-
portunity to tender our appre-
ciation of his efforts. We reaffirm
our support for his policies and
believe that they can only be car-
ried out by the Democratic Party
and a liberal Democratic Presi-
dent.

Vote Yes ...
To the Editor:
THE recent overwhelming "Yes"
vote on the campus referen-
dum concerning the Lecture Com-
mittee is a heartening event to
students concerned with politics.
It is a clear challenge to charges
of student apathy, "silent genera-
tions," and the like. Moreover, it
demonstrates the value-and the
possibility-of unified political ac-
tion on campus issues. The sup-
port of all major political organi-
zations, the coordinated activity
of both Democrats and Republi-
cans, for instance, were factors
which greatly increased the large
'yes' vote.
The Student Legislature has
been given a clear mandate from
the student body. The excellent
work done thus far points the way
to further, direct action on remov-
ing the Regents' bylaw empower-
ing the Lecture Committee.

Pen Request..
To the Editor:
I AM very much interested in
corresponding with students
of the University of Michigan. As
I have the name of no one, I have
availed myself of the opportunity
of writing you, and I do request
you to please give the appropriate
publicity to my letter, in your stu-
dent daily.
I am nineteen years old, and a
sophomore. I am willing to ex-
change with University of Michi-
gan students, Americans and for-
eigners alike, student publications,

literary and scientific journals,
and books of general interest.
I hope that you will take up,
through your paper, this oppor-
tunity with the student body.
Their letters will be most welcome.
For correspondence purposes, my
mail address is: c/o The Principal,
Central School, Caoayan, Ilocos
Sur, Philippines.
With my best wishes, believe me,

Taft's Policies .. ,
To the Editor:
WHILE I would be among the
first to defend a newspaper's
right to editorialize, it would seem
that the proper thing for a col-
lege newspaper to do is to present
both sides of political issues and
other issues which go beyond the
scope of the campus. This The
Daily has consistently neglected
to do in its one sided move "down
the line" for Eisenhower.
Passing lightly over the remarks
of Mr. Cal Samra in Thursday's

to point up the fact that commu-
nism might exist within the state
department was a worthwhile
"alert" signal); or that Taft re-
fuses the forwarding of economic
aid (on the contrary-he favors it
except for the spreading of our
armed forces throughout the
world).
Mr. Samra also accused the Sen-
ator of side-tracking "pressing do-
mestic issues." The fact that he
did not mention these issues in
Ann Arbor shows not that he op-
poses socfal legislation or fails
to realize its importance, but only
that he had merely 45 minutes in
which to express his views here in
Ann Arbor. He has not avoided
them in longer speeches elsewhere.
After all, what has Eisenhower
said about them? What do we
know of his attitudes?
It is not my intention to support
all of Taft's policies or ideas but
rather to seek for them a fair
and accurate hearing and presen-
tation. Best wishes for a fairer
and more enlightened future edi-
torial policy.

Co-ed Admissions...
To the Editor:
IN REFERENCE TO Miss Zeis-
ler's article on admission of
women to U. of M., I wish to
point out the fact that attributing
such a change in University poli-
cy to the actions and desires of
one or two people is an inducive
leap.
The matter had been unler
lively discussion in many quarters
over a period of years. For 21
years, if the Regent's resolution
(1849) concerning the importance
of female education and the ex-
pediency of establishing a Pre-
paratory Department of the Uni-
versity in Ann Arbor is considered
as the beginning of the movement
for co-education. Or for 12 years,
if the Regents' discussion, March
25, 1858, of a communication re-
questing the admission of 12 young
ladies is considered as the begin-
ning.
In 1858 several Regents and
even Governor Bingham favored
the admission of ladies. But ac-
tion by the Regents was post-
poned at that time. President Tap-
pan never favored having "the
sexes together." In 1868 Presi-
dent Haven, in his annual report
to the Board of Regents, expressed
his favor of a change in policy to
admit females. In 1869 the Legis-
lature approved a resolution re-
questing the Board of Regents to
admit women "as soon as practi-
cable." In 1870 the Regents, with
one dissenting voice, passed the
resolution to admit women.
After the Regents had approved
this, some attributed the change
in policy to a change in member-
ship of the Board of Regents, be.
cause the two new members, Es-
tabrook and McGowan, voted Aye
on the resolution.
Nevertheless, the admission of
Miss Stockwell was the culmina-
tion of long, careful study of prob-
lems connected with a major
change in University policy.
Incidentally, The Peninsular
Courier and Family Visitant, an
Ann Arbor newspaper, on Febru-
ary 18, 1870, reported that Miss
Stockwell "is reciting in mathe-
matics with the freshman class
and in the classics with the soph-
omore class")
