ON THE
Washington Merry-Go-Round
WITH DREW PEARSON

It has been reported that Field Marshal
Rommel, the famed desert rat, was thus
disposed of. In 1942, Dr. Schreiber was the
senior medical officer at a conference which
ordered experimental injections made of
human guinea pigs. Later at Buchenwald
concentration camp, four or five prisoners
were dragged in and injected with raw
phenol. They doubled up in a cramp and
died. The experiment was pronounced a
success.
-- MICE AND MEN -
TwO Kicking, screaming young Polish
girls were held down by SS troops and
forcibly operated on at Ravensbrueck con-
cenetration camp in August 1943. At least
three were killed by these experiments in
gas ganggrene. Dr. Karl Gebhardt, who was
hanged for performing the experiments, tes-
tified that he has discussed his work with
Dr. Schreiber, also that Schreiber had re-
ceived reports on the experiments through
official channels. Nuremberg document No.
619 also shows that Schreiber was second on
a list of prominent German medical officers
who were detached to the SS for two days,
May 16-18, 1944, to attend a meeting at the
SS hospital in Hohenlychen. The results
of the gas gangrene experiments on the un-
willing Polish girls were presented at this
meeting.
3. Human victims were also used in
typhus experiments at Buchenwald and
Natzweiler concentration camps. Deadly
virus wa stransferred from men to mice
and bac kin an attempt to produce live
vaccine. Prisoners were innoculated with
typhus merely to keep the virus alive.
Many died, but new ones took their place.
Professor Eugene Haagen, who was con-
ducting the experiments at Natzweiler, wrote
to Dr. Schreiber on June 12, 1944, requesting
more mice (he had plenty of men). Schrei-
ber fired back a prompt, affirmative reply,
dated June 20, 1944. The leters show that
Schreiber thoroughly understood what was
going on at Natzweiler.
4. A favorite Nazi experiment was to
plunge human victims into tubs of ice cold
water to study the shock reactions. Schrei-
ber was No. 76 on a restricted list of medical
officers who received reports on the criminal
shock experiments.
These are the qualifications of the man
who is now in the United States doing re-
search for the Air Force. Other Nazi me-
dicos were hanged or imprisoned on the
same evidence.-,
Note: In fairness to the Air Force, Schrei-
ber was cleared by the American authori-
ties in Germany before the Air Force hired
him. The mysterious thing is how Schreiber
was cleared in the first place. The Air
Force is now re-investigating Schreiber.

BOOKS
SENATOR ROBERT A. TAFT'S new book
"A Foreign Policy for Americans" should
be read by both friends and foes of the
avowed Republican Presidential candidate,
for this short policy statement promises to
become one of the major issues of the forth-
coming Presidential campaign.
As might be expected, the book reflects
the "out of office" feeling that the Repub-
licans have had for the last 20 years. This
feeling is especially evident in Taft's dis-
cussion of the constitutional relationship
of Congress and the President in the con-
duct of foreign affairs. Although he con-
cedes the President initiative in con-
ducting our foreign relations, he would
reserve to Congress a greater power over
policy and decisions that has been the
wont of either Roosevelt or Truman.
Should Taft himself become President it
is assumed that he would abide by his pre-
cise limitations on the President to commit
troops abroad, a power which Taft would
now rather see reside in Congress. One
cannot help but think that should he become
President, Taft might someday be very em-
barrassed by his words if foreign develop-
ments forced such commitments by him.
* * *
IN DISCUSSING the United Nations, Taft
is preocupied with a nebulous "undrlying
law and an administration of justice under
that law" which he believes should have
been the original basis of the United Nations
Charter. His solution for final international
peace is the formulation of a law by which
all nations would abide, and through which
they could settle all disputes that might
arise between them,
At the present time Taft regards the
veto power as a great obstacle to success
in the international undertaking, but un-
til his vague law is established, he does not
countenance letting the veto power go.
Methods for enactment of the "underlying
law" seem even less .concrete than the law
itself. Taft recognizes that an internation-
al convention is impossible because of Rus-
sia, and so realizes that the law cannot
be enacted by any such gathering. He re-
grets that it was not established on a small
scale in the North Atlantic Treaty and
looks with hope for future alliances of
small groups of countries as a method of
establishing the law.
However, his comment and solutions can-
not be too reassuring to the reader who won-
ders just what the relation between the
United States and the United Nations would
be under a Taft regime or until international
law is established. Unfortunately the book
does not satisfactorialy outline this relation-
ship.
Perhaps this example and the other in-
definite policies stated by the Senator are
the major flaw of the book and of his
whole Presidential campaign. Taft's main
appeal rests in his supposed ability to get
to the bottom of a complex problem and
propose solutions to counteract the trouble.
Campaign managers are selling Taft to
the American public as a brilliant man
who can meet and solve the problems fac-
ing us today. Unfortunately, Taft's book
does not instill this view in my mind, and
IE doubt if it will convince many others.
In addition there are several rather dis-
turbing contradictions in the book which
make the reader wonder about Taft's real
positions on atomic warfare and the extent
of American aid to countries in need of
military help. Regarding atomic power and
the Russian threat, Taft states in his in-
troduction that "today Stalin has atomic
bombs and long-range bombers capable of
delivering them to the United States." Then
later in the book he remarks "I somewhat
doubt whether the Russians really can de-
liver an atomic bomb." The frightening
thing about these conflicting statements is
that they sound entirely logical in context
and substantiate some phase of Taft policy.

* * *
TAFIS CONTRADICTION about military
aid is more deep seated and harder to
discern. Writing on Asia he accuses the ad-
ministration of making Korea a "soft spot"
for Communist aggression, but in discussing
European defense he advocates policies
which many will regard as leading to thei
conversion of Europe into a similar "soft
spot."
Though he agrees that Europe needs some
help, he still demands that every country
take a great initiative in its own defense.
Taft does not seem to consider that had the
United States made such a demand of South
Korea, the disaster there would have been
more serious than it has been.
One can honestly observe that Senator
Taft's hindsight is excellent, but his fore-
sight leaves much to be desired. With great
documentation and clarity of reasoning,
Taft succeeds in proving some of the ad-
ministration's policy mistakes since World
War If, but on the whole these errors have
already been recognized by most of the
American public. Few will disagree that
Korea has been a terrible mistake, many
will accede that Yalta and Potsdam left
much to be desired in statesmanship and
benefits for the Western powers, but the
bulk of the American public is thinking
of future policies.
However, in looking through the book for
constructive future plans, one has a rather
unrewarding search. The haziness of Taft's
ideas on international organization, the con-
flicting views and opinions evident in the
structures of his policies, and his great re-
liance on recognition of past administration
mistakes as the backbone of the book com-

The Learning Process . .
To the Editor:
I HAVE JUST finished reading
the article "The Black Silence
of Fear" written by Justice Wil-
liam O. Douglas which appeared
in the New York Times magazine
section dated January 13. This ar-
ticle prompted me to analyze the
American educational system-the
system which is molding and de-
veloping the minds of our young
people.
Upon completion of my master's
degree, I intend to teach history
in the secondary schools of New
York City. Frankly, I am very ap-
prehensive about entering the pro-
fession. Social studies has become
the most controversial subject
matter taught in our schools to-
day. Unfortunately, I am not a
conformist-that is, I question. I
never realized until I got to this
university what unorthodoxy it is
to question our established values.
Classes are large and on the grad-
uate level as many as two hundred
are packed into a lecture hall to
"so call" learn history. It is a far
cry from the small discussion
groups that were the rule in un-
dergraduate work. Students hur-
riedly scribble each word the pro-
fessor states, never once consid-
ering whether the assertion is
valid. Yes, we are supposed to be
sponges, sopping everything up,
only to give it back on examina-

tions. This is called education. Un-
fortunately, Michigan is not dif-
ferent from most universities and
this, in turn, is a part of a pattern
which pervades our entire society.
In the high school teachers are
told to extol men for patriotic rea-
sons, even if it means distortions.
They are under constant pressure,
they must sign loyalty oaths and
restrict their outside activities to
conform to acepted standards.
What is subversive? I have just
read that Students for Democratic
Action has been banned in one of
the New York City Colleges. Yet
these institutions are places of
learning, places where immature'
minds try to grope forward, to
search for values, to find them-
selves and it is here that the very
process is squelched.
The article that Justice Douglas
wrote expressed perfectly the un-
healthiness of this situation. In-
deed, it is a sad story when history
repeats itself and the Palmer
Raids become the McCarran Com-
mittee. The liberals of this coun-
try look to Justice Douglas to keep
the democratic faith alive. He has
repeatedly stated that he will not
run for the presidency in 1952. It
is a great loss to the American
people for under his guidance we
could once again lead the world
in the battle of ideas instead of
leading men on the bloody battle-
field.

ART

ACTIVE AND potential print collectors
may have themselves a field day any
time through February 26th in the West
Gallery of Alumni Memorial Hall. "Four
Centuries of French Prints" is, as I under-
stand it, a dealer's show; in any case, all the
prints are priced and for sale. Miss Hall, in
the Museum office, will be happy to make
the necessary arrangements.
It is worth pointing out that although
all are "limited editions," the purchaser
cannot expect to buy the only existing
copy of any particular print, as he could
if he were buying a drawing. Full parti-
culars are provided on the accompanying
placards.
With certain few exceptions, the prices are
attractively reasonable, and lower than I
would have been inclined to expect. The
prices range. from $10 (for example, a Dau-
mier called "Les bons bourgeois") to $500
(Francois Paninet's color aquatint, "L'Agre-
able Negligee"). However, of the 75 entries,
26 are $25 or under, and only nine are $100
or over. And it costs nothing just to look.
In the lower price range, some of the more
attractive specimens are Daumier's litho-
graph "Berceuse" ($25) and his drypoint
"Portrait de M. X" ($25). An exquisitely
simple Maillol, "Nu ossis" ($70), gets my
vote for the best of the show, although there,
are many other excellent exhibits. I would
have no serious quarrel with anyone who
preferred the Rodin, the Picasso, the Lau-
trecs, or the two beautiful Roualts.
A very few are rather disappointing, I
must admit. "La bonne deese" by Redon is
one of these; perhaps I have been led to
expect too much from him. The Cezanne,
the Renoir, and the L'Hote finish off the
list in this category, but even so, only the
Renoir is overpriced.
The North Gallery at present houses a
sort of bonus exhibit, unannounced but not
unrewarding. The items on display are part
of the museum's permanent collection, and
Professor Slusser informs me that as soon
as possible, they will be hung in the mez-
zanine.
Two Flemish 16th Century tapestries de-
picting the legend of Troy almost cover the
large wall. These, together with another 16th
Century Flemish tapestry and a 17th Cen-
tury Spanish embroidery, have unfortunate-

The natural attraction toward the busy,
prop-filled stage, I felt, did not conceal a
certain spiritual inadequacy in the work as
a whole. Undoubtedly Brecht's intention at
the time he wrote the play in 1931 was to
bring a certain scientific precision to artistic
consideration of the Nazi movement in Ger-
many at the time. He evidently wished to in-
terrupt the empathy of the audience to re-
move himself from the rapt emotionalism
that was generally associated with the new
fascism. However, in achieving this, in care-
fully marking his equal signs, his pluses
and his minuses, he emerges with a rather
abstract propaganda piece that is almost
meaningless at its realistic level. Like most
works of abstraction, it makes important use
of props and movements; and is most ef-
fective when it uses these well.
Don Douglas acts the main part of
Gayly Gay, the common man, convincing-
ly enough, but Brecht has made the char-
acter so weak, it is impossible not to be-
lieve that a stronger man might not have
