Egypt-I
EGYPT, traditionally a land of mystery,
lies in a land where three continents
cross; today, it is in the peculiar-and un-
comfortable-position of harboring three
clashing ideologies-Communism, Western
Democracy, and monarchial feudalism.
Ancient writers, Shakespeare, and Shaw
glamorized the Egypt of the pharoahs and
Cleopatra, but that Egypt was nothing
compared to the seething Egypt of today,
where a rectafigular conflict of interests
threatens to cast the world into another
war.
The Soviet Union has long considered
Egypt a palatable plucking; over the years
Communist leaders have strained their ra-
pacious eyes on the warm water ports, Suez
Canal, air line communibations, and the in-
fluential position of reigning over a large
segment of. the world's 300,000,000 Muslims.
The Communists realize that strife-ridden
Egypt is, by virtue of its economic and po-
litical advancement, the leader among the
Muslim countries; they realize, too, that a
Communist victory in Egypt would echo
from Muslim Morrocco to Muslim Indonesia.
Great Britain, still grasping precariously
to the vestiges of empire, has had a vital
interest in Egypt since the early 19th cen-
tury. It's life-line to the Far East runs
through the Suez Canal; today, the imple-
mentation of the Anglo-American contain-
ment policy awards special consideration
to Egypt and -the Middle East.
The interests of the United States in
Egypt run concurrently with those of Britain,
though this nation has often sympathized
with the national aspirations of the coun-
try.
And then there are the Egyptians.
** *
BEFORE even a partial insight into the
Egyptian problems can be gained, an
understanding of the country itself, its vital
statistics, is necessary.
Egypt is about the size of Spain, with an
area of about 363,000 miles, of which only
13,000 square miles in the Nile area are cul-
tivable and habitable. The rest is desert.
A hot, arid country, it possesses little na-
tural resources. The most important natural
resource is the Nile, which provides the two
main needs of the country-water and soil.
Such staple crops as cotton, wheat and rice
are the chief products of the rich river
valley. But there is little industry in the
country.
The heterogenous population of Egypt
totals about 19,000,000 Arabic-speaking in-

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

habitants. The masses are, by and large,
poor and illiterate, plagued with disease.
In effect, they are bona fide serfs, tied to
the land, tied to their creditors.
A small minority of pashas and landlords
holds, as hereditary privilege, title to some-
thing like 85 per cent of the land. The fel-
lahin are further milked by the upper crust
by being forced to bear the brunt of the in-
come tax. Consequently, there is a grossly
inequitable distribution of wealth.
The Egyptian Government operates as a
constitutional monarchy, under the incor-
rigible leadership of King Farouk. The
"malik" is quite authoritative, prone to
whim rather than law. He has the power to
appoint two-thirds of the Chamber of Depu-
ties, can appoint his own administrative
ministers, and can dissolve parliament at
will.
The primary deficiency of the Egyptian
government is its budget, which, on many
occasions, would have been scarcely suf-
ficient to sponsor the trip of two camels
across the desert. Progressive attempts at
economic development are hampered by
the meager budget.
Egyptian politics are marked by an em-
phasis on personalities rather than issues.
The nationalistic Wafd party, which controls
the trade unions, is the most powerful. Re-
ligious fanaticism is inescapably tied in with
politics, and theIkwan-El-Muslimin, the
Moslem Brotherhood, flourishes in Egypt. A
fascistic, anti-Western, anti-Communist or-
ganization, the Brotherhood advocates a re-
turn to the ascetic tenets of Islam.
Prior to 1922, Egypt was dominated di-
rectly by the British. In that year, Egypt
gained its so-called "independence" and
was proclaimed a constitutional monarchy.
But the British never relinquished their
control over the country. The controversial
Treaty of 1936 was a humiliating subjec-
tion to imperial Britain, virtually cement-
ing Egypt in the clutches of the English.
Out of that treaty came two agreements
which are presently the chief straining
points between Egypt and Britain.
1) Britain was allowed to maintain
100,000 troops in the Suez Canal area.
2) Egypt bowed to condominium of 1899,
which provided for Anglo-Egyptian sur-
veillance over the Sudan.
Last year, Egypt formally denounced the
1936 treaty, insisted on British withdrawal
from the Suez Canal and the Sudan. Since
then, conditions have gone from bad to
worse. Riots have swept across Cairo and
Alexandria; Egyptian irregulars have clash-

ed with British Suez troops. The Western
educated young Effendis, progressive-mind-
ed, are being persecuted. Martial law has
been declared. Egyptian laws against kissing
in public have been relaxed. The cabinet of
Nahhas Pasha has fallen. And the wave
of anti-Western hysteria continues, with
mobs calling for a diplomatic rapport with
Russia.
The Soviet Union is taking full advan-
tage of the Egyptian crisis. The Commun-
ists have made efforts to enlarge upon their
trade agreements with the country. They
have thrown their moral support behind
Egypt's nationalistic attempts to oust the
British.
As yet, the Foreign Office has failed to
recognize the imminent danger of shoving
the Egyptians into the Communist camp.
Prime Minister Churchill, with typical ef-
frontery, has even gone so far as to re-
quest American "token troops"' to safe-
guard the Suez passageway.
* * *
HERE IS Egypt's case.
1) The Suez Canal cannot be protected
by a mere 100,000 troops, the number al-
lowed by the Treaty of 1936.
2) There is no reason why the Egyptian
Army itself cannot protect the Canal Zone.
3) The Suez Canal is not as vital as it once
was, due to the fact that the Russians are
building a submarine base in Albania,nde-
signed to cripple the British Mediterranean
fleet.
4) If the British remain in the Sudan,
they still can exercise great influence over
Egypt, because the headwaters of the Nile
are located in the Sudan, and the course of'
the river can easily be diverted, starving
Egypt into submission.
But the Egyptians' convincing argument
is simply an appeal for total independence.
It is an appeal which has its roots in the
faith they placed in the principle of self-
determination. It is an appeal for national
satisfaction.
The State Department has studied these
arguments attentively, is presently looking
for a compromise. One such compromise--
perhaps the most reasonable-would be the
withdrawal of the British from the Suez
and the Sudan in return for Egyptian en-
trance into a Middle East Defense Pact..
This Pact would include Greece,. Turkey,
Egypt, the United States, and Britain. It
would be comparable to the Atlantic Pact,
in several respects, and might conceivably,
placate the Egyptians further by advanc-
ing them economic and technical aid.
The Middle East being the weakest link
in the containment chain around the
periphery of the Soviet Union, a Pact, in-
cluding Egypt, is the most reasonable goal
of the State Department.
If the Egyptians can get the Sudan and
the Suez at the same time, they will un-
doubtedly join the defense pact. An Arab
knows a good bargain when he sees one.

ON THE'
Washington Merry-Go-Round
WITH DREW PEASONp
r~ rr r r~~rrriwr Ii

if

WASHINGTON-The manner in which
an Egyptian cotton broker grossed $16
million at the expense of the U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture has cotton dealers
boiling mad and is almost certain to result
in a Congressional investigation.
The Egyptian cotton broker Is Loutfy
Mansour, who, acting on inside informa-
tion just before the Agriculture Depart-
ment suddenly decided to buy Egyptian
cotton, cornered 17,500 bales and cleaned
up.
What cotton-bloc senators are aroused
over is the friendship between Egyptian
broker Mansour and Clovis Walker, head of
the Agriculture Department cotton branch.
Walker vigorously denies that he gave any
inside information to Mansour. Neverthe-
less, it is a fact that the two are friends,
have exchanged presents, and that the
Agriculture Department-official attended a
fancy dinner thrown by Mansour at the
Shoreham Hotel here last August.
It is also interesting that Walker recom-
mended Dyke Collum, onetime speculat-
ing partner of, ex-Sen. Elmer Thomas of
Oklahoma, to the Egyptian broker to be
Mansour's brokerage representative in
Washington.
Thus, ties between Mansour and Walker
are close.
Walker, when questioned by this column,
admitted he had received gifts from the
Egyptian broker in the form of Egyptian
glassware and silver. He claimed, however,
that he had given electrically illuminated
pictures, which he makes, in return, and
that his gifts were as valuable as Mansour's.
When and if the Senate digs into Man-
sour's amazing cotton speculation, it will
want to inquire about several interesting
facts. One is the fact that Mansour had
enough advance information that Egyp-
tian cotton was to be bought to come to
Washington from Egypt in time to nego-
tiate. He also had enough advance infor-
mation to corner the Egyptian cotton
market.

GOVERNMENT WASTE
- RMED SERVICES officials who figured
in the huge and abortive machine-tool
contract, suddenly canceled following an
expose by this columnist, got a rough
working-over last week from a House com-
mittee probing military waste.
Committee Chairman Ed Hebert of
Louisiana had the atmosphere hopping
as he angrily demanded answers to:
1. Why the Fisher Body division of Gen-
eral Motors was given the Air Force contract
to make 757 vertical turret lathes, though
it had no experience in this field; also, why

spend $7,000,000 for expanding the lathe.
making facilities of the Bullard Company,
though the government stood to lose more
than that in tooling-up expenses at the
Fisher Body plant?
Congressman Hebert and his colleagues
also brought out that the government
agreed to "rent" Fisher-G.M. all but 80 out
of some 507 units of tooling machinery
needed to fulfill the contract. But it turned
out that this was not actually rent, but a
free gift to the company under a "credit"
stipulation.
* * *
G.M. OFFICIALS INVOLVED
THE REVELATIONS brought gasps from
spectators but little worthwhile infor-
mation from Assistant Air Secretary R. L.
Gilpatric, who nervously argued that the
contract was. awarded Fisher-G.M. because
it could "get the job done faster" than the
Bullard Co.
Gilpatric at first denied that anyone
formerly associated with Fisher Body
Company had anything to do with placing
the order. However, under some cross-
examination by Congressman Paul Cun-
ningham of Iowa, he was forced to retreat.
It developed that Boyer not only is a
former official of General Motors, which
owns the Fisher Company, but that Boyer
had a prominent voice in awarding the con-
tract-in fact, he "personally recommended
to me that the best way to get on with this
job from a time standpoint" was to give it
to Fisher, Gilpastric told the committee.
Gilpatric defended Boyer on the ground
that he had a "special competence" in his
job.
Most fantastic touch was provided by
Swan E. Bergstrom, a machine-tool expert
with the National Production Authority.
Replying to questions by Hebert about why
the Fisher Company was to be paid $90,600
each for the same turret lathe another
company was selling for $38,000, Bergstrom
said it was perfectly normal for Fisher to
charge the government 2Y2 times as much,
because Fisher was "inexperienced" in mak-
ing machine tools.
"Does that answer your question?" asked
the witness.
"It's as clear as mud," replied Congress-
man Hebert, who indicated later that he
still can't understand why inexperience
should cost twice as much as experience.
Congressman Jack Dempsey of New Mexi-
co, long-time crusader against waste in
government, noted that the inexperience
seemed to be on the side of Gilpatric and
others responsible for the machine-tool
blunder. When Bergstrom conceded that the
$90,600 price was prohibitive to private cus-

Air Port Mania
By . iM. ROBERTS, JR.
Associated Press News Analys.,
GOVERMENT officials report no wave of
hysteria throughout the United States
among people living near busy airports. But
there certainly is one in and around New
York.
Automobiles collide, ships sink and air-
liners crash. As long as it involves only
those who pay their money and take their
chances, the general public accepts it as
part of life. But when three big planes
crash into one small, apartment-congested I
area within two months, the impact is dif-
ferent.
Newark airport, even when it was the busi-
est in the world, produced only one serious
commercial crash in more than 20 years.
Then suddenly, by strange coincidence, there
are three in a row. Public officials, already
under heavy pressure because the second
crash took life and property from innocent
residents, closed the field in the middle of
the night without even waiting for the pub-
lic clamor of dawn.
Yet the chances against the Elizabeth
string of crashes being stretched by one or
more new ones would seem almost incalcu-
lable. But the Governor of New Jersey, the
officials of the Port of New York Authority
which operates the field, the Mayor of Eliza-
beth were unanimous. They might know that
hysteria was taking over, but the pressure
was too great.
Then it spread to Queens, 20 miles away,
where Idlewild and LaGuardia fields
shared with Newark the load of nearly
all the vast metropolitan and international
air traffic. Shifting the Newark load ran
the flight total at LaGuardia to 100 an
hour.
"Close them down," demanded the chair-
man of the Aviation Committee of the
Queens County Jurors Association. Leaders
of civic and taxpayers groups, already op-
posed to the fields because of their nuisance
to residents, took up the crT'-
It takes a mixture of human congestion,
fear and dramatics to produce such a reac-
tion. More than a million people have died
on the nation's highways. Thousands of
vehicles have crashed into stores and homes,
crushed pedestrians on sidewalks, and pub-
lic reaction to safety measures remains ex-
asperatingly mild.
Yet great masses of people shudder into
protesting groups when something as un-
predictable as lightning strikes nearby,

THE OTHER evening, while
thumbing blithely through
next semester's time schedule, I
came across a bit of information
which at first amused me, then
perplexed me, and finally left me
in a state of fearful bewilderment.
On page 71, under Physical edu-
cation for men, the following
course is listed: no. 48, square and
social dancing. It will meet each
Monday and Wednesday evening
at Waterman gymnasium at seven
P.M. This, in itself, is innocuous.
But at the bottom of the very
same page is listed course no. 48
under physical education for wo-
men, also called 'square and social
dancing. It too meets at Water-
man gym on Monday and Wed-
nesday evenings. But, and this is
significant, it meets at seven-fif-
teen P.M.
What takes place during this
interim?
What preparations must the
male students undergo before the
female students are allowed to
dance with them?
Apparently harmless on the sur-
face, it is this sort of unpublicized
intrigue which may be the factor
undermining the spirit and morals
of the university.
Under the guise of these so-call-
ed 'educational' endeavors, there
is no telling what actually is tak-
ing place.
It is up to the Daily, to SL, to
the students themselves to find
out, once and for all-
Who are the people that take
such courses? Why do they take
them? What do they know, and
not reveal?
And perhaps, in the future,
there may be a time when the
men and women of this university
can enterdWaterman gymnasium
in the daylight, together un-
ashamed.

in the other column thus easily
determining who accompanied
whom to the J-Hop. A greater
break- down in the number sys-
tem would enable a further analy-
sis by interested students wishing
to determine who doubled, tripled,
quadrupled, etc with whom.
I must admit that this is but a
modest objective. Eventually, per-
haps, the "Daily" could offer such
information as the make and year
of the car used (if any), the day
in advance of the J-Hop on which
the date wasmade, the occupation
and Dunn & Bradstreet rating of
the parent or guardian of each in-
dividual attending the dance, and
the place where each couple dined
before and after the dance.
Although such improvements
may only be viewed as possible
future developments, the estab-
ment of an annual cross reference
system of recording the names of
the couples who attended could
easily be started next year. This
would certainly be a great service
to the University of Michigan stu-
dent body.
Yours for better J-Hop issues,

J-Hop Extra . .
To the Editor:
MAY I take this occasion to
congratulate you on your J-
Hop issue of the Michigan Daily?
There are, however, several addi-
tions which, if made, would con-
siderably expand the scope of your
annual coverage of this event.
One year ago, when you printed
a similar issue, the editors of the
Michigan Daily saw fit, in making
known the names of the couples
attending, to first print the name
of the lady and subsequently the
gentlemen. This procedure was re-
versed in your last issue. Both
methods, no doubt, have caused
numerous students to hunt
through countless names in order
to find the information they de-
sired and, in many cases, still de-
sire.
I suggest that you print two al-
phabetical lists-one of ladies, an-
other of gentlemen. Next to each
name could be printed a cross ref-
