'Shirtsleeve Economics'

SHIRTSLEEVE ECONOMICS, by Wil-
liam A. Paton, Edmund S. Gay, Professor
of Accounting, School of Business Armin-
istration, Appleton-Century-Crofts, Inc.
TUDENTS OF accounting in the School
of Business Administration will need
little introduction to this book or its au-
thor. For nearly 40 years, Prof. William A.
Paton, one of the nation's outstanding au-
thorities on accounting theory and practice,
has been know by his students as much for
his slam-bang, off-the-cuff attacks on the
socialist "do-gooders" as he has been for his
authoritative approach to accounting pro-
cedures.
In "Shirtsleeve Economics," however, the
"Great White Father" of all Bus-Ad stu-
dents steps forth from his accounting sanc-
tuary in the Monroe Street tower and issues
a ringing defense of the free enterprise sys-
tem, directed towards "those who are will-
ing to tackle the job of understanding
what's going on nowadays with their coats
off." His students will readily recognize his
familiar attacks on governmental policies
but for the uninitiated Patonian, "Shirt-
sleeve Economics" presents an extremely
stimulating and controversial analysis of the
economic facts of life.
Paton's central thesis, which permeates
every page of his book, is that production,
and only production, is the key to econo-
mic well-being and a high standard of
living. "The only possible way to increase
the average share of the consumer is to.
expand production, and with a decline in
output the average share is bound to be
reduced."
But how do we obtain this production?
For Paton the answer lies only in the free
enterprise system which rewards the pro-
ducer by enabling him "to receive the equi-
valent of what he contributes to the econo-
my." Leveling his sights on the economic
planners of the New-Fair Deal variety, Pa-
ton asserts that the governmental policies of
the past 20 years have generally been re-
strictie-"they have been designed "to prop
up tha weak and discourage the strong."
Government loan policies, "fair trade" laws,
the harassing of big and efficient enter-
prises and "a schme of taxation on indivi-
dual incomes and business earnings which
tends to curtail long-run future output by
impairing growth of capital funds and the
incentives to increase activity," have all
placed far-reaching restraints on our eco-
nomic system and are leading the nation
down a one-way road to state socialism and
a lower standard of living.
* * *
HOW DO WE DETERMINE the produ-
tive contribution of each individual and
hence his just share of the nation's output?
Here again Paton readily finds the answer
within the framework of the free enter-
prise competitive market system. But if this
system is to operate correctly it must be
left free from all government intervention.
"The human being is beset with plenty of
troubles and has enough problems to solve
to occupy all his time and energy without
tackling the administration of processes that
work best when left alone," says Paton. He
colorfully illustrates this point by citing the
fable of Miss Centipede, who when asked
by Mr. Beetle to "show me how you move
the fifth leg on your left side," struggled so

hard and so desperately to move only that
one particular leg that "she wrought her-
self to such a pitch, she stretched out help-
less in the ditch."
Paton would relegate to government
(which he terms "nothng but institution-
alized force, coercion, a factor which must
be kept at a minimum if tyranny is to be
avoided) a relatively narrow role-police
protection, providing monetary facilities,
enforcing vigorous competition and other
specifically defined tasks.
Attacking the plethora of government ex-
penditures in the past 20 years, Paton points
out that the process of government hand-
outs under one guise or another "is simply
the process of diverting the taxpayer's pur-
chasing power-or what's left of it after
the heavy cost of administration has been
deducted-to those who are on the lists of
beneficiaries.
It should not be assumed that "Shirt-
sleeve Economics" is merely a defense of the
independent businessman. Paton is as cri-
tical of the interferences with the free en-
terprise system created by monopolies as
with those created by the government poli-
cies. "Those who prate of 'free enterprise
and at the same time use their influence to
establish pressure groups and break down
competition (through collusion and coer-
cion) are of no help to the cause to which
they give lip service; instead they are fos-
tering, perhaps unwittingly, the drive toward
state socialism, the 'queue society'."
* * *
PROF. PATON does not confine his anal-
ysis of economic affairs to the broader
outlines of general principles. He attacks
with a vengeance (and with keen insight)
such specific problems as the corporate
structure ("the investor is indeed the for-
gotten man of this era"); social security
measures ("no human arrangement or in-
stitution, governmental or otherwise, can
guarantee all of us, for the indefinite future
a specified standard of living"); labor ("col-
lective bargaining tends to prevent employ-
ers from offering better pay for superior
performance and thousands of workers are
put at the disposal of the union boss to be
sold on whatever terms he agrees to, like a
rancher might sell a herd of cattle); agri-
cultural policies and utility regulation.
While the reader may not disagree with
Prof. Paton's belief that the free enter-
prise system is unquestionably the most
desirable system, both economically and
socially, he may well ask whether such a
system is possible in the modern world of
gigantic enterprise and extremely compli-
cated economic structures.
The vast majority of the American busi-
nessmen and workers unfortunately do not
have the same strong-willed, highly indivi-
dualistic characteristics as Prof. Paton. And
many readers may find it impossible, in view
of the ever-present and oppressive threat of
communistic totalitarianism, to accept Pa-
ton's view that periodic fluctuations such
as the collapse in the early thirties "are part
of the cost of having a dynamic incentive
system."
But agree or disagree, "Shirtsleeve Eco-
nomics" is extremely interesting and worth-
while reading. Those who believe in the tra-
ditional "laissez faire" economics of the
classical school will nod vigorously in whole-
hearted assent as they turn the pages. And
those followers of the more recent Keyn-
sian-Hansen school will undoubtedly just as
vigorously denounce this "Parade of Paton-
ian Prejudices." But none will denounce the
forthright approach,the challenging readi-
ness to "take on all comers" and the salty
flavor of Paton's style.

Minority
Pressure
THE SUPREME COURT yesterday finally
ended the long and acrimonious con-
troversy over "The. Miracle" with a ruling
that a state may not ban a film on the
grounds that it is sacriligious. The high tri-
bunal unanimously reversed the judgment
of New York's high court of appeals, which
had upheld a ban on the showing of the
Roberto Rosselini film by the state's license
commissioner.
Initially, the showing of the film in
New York City had brought down a mel-
ange of criticism chiefly from Catholic
quarters, supported by a cross-section of
Protestants, who claimed that it "mocked
the divine birth of Christ." After the Le-
gion of Decency dubbed the film "sac-
riligeous," pickets organized by Catholic
War Veterans descended upon theatres
showing the movie. Some boycotts were
also organized before "The Miracle" went
to court.
Later, it was feared that the same fate
awaited one of 1951's finest pictures --
"Street Car Named Desire." But, fortunate-
ly, an effective opposition never crystallized,
though a great deal of pressure was brought
to bear to "tone down" the Elia Kazan pro-
duction.
Of course the practice of picketing films
and exerting pressure on Hollywood studios
while a movie is still in an embryonic stage
has not been limited solely to Catholic
groups. Jewish War Veterans and Negro or-
ganizations have often been guilty of similar
tactics. Objections to "Oliver Twist" and
"Birth of a Nation" were frequently ex-
pressed through picket lines.
Such incidents have had a significant
impact on the movie industry. Recently,
16 big theater operators throughout the
countrywired N.Y. offices, Theatre Own-
ers of America, to rush the names of films
on various "blacklists." This hysteria an-
ticipates a chain reaction which is bound
to end with the American artist, shack-
ling a freedom which has heretofore been
limited only by legal injunctions against
libel, slander, and pornography.
Regardless of the ill taste of some of these
movies, bans, pickets, boycotts, and pressure
by any group cannot be reasonably justi-
fied. Such tactics encroach upon the right
of the American public to choose its enter-
tainment, and may reflect unfavorably on
the freedom of the American artist.

THE FOURPOSTER, with Burgess Mere-
dith and Betty Field, presented by the
Ann Arbor Drama Season.
JOSE FERRER, the man somebody said
was the Broadway season this year,
came to Ann Arbor yesterday and has lent
some of his talent to the local scene. With
the help of two engaging veterans, Burgess
Meredith and Betty Field, he put on a hand-
some production of a so-so play. As was the
case in most of the others plays with which
he has been lately associated, he, with his
stars, triumphed over material that was just
one level above the soap serial.
The play and the production deserve to
be separateiy assessed. First, the play,
dealing as it does with the thirty-five
years' progress of a marriage, is naturally
subject to the terrific temptation of the
domestic cliche. This, unfortunately, is
not often overcome. Framed in six scenes,
the events of the drama naturally occur
on "important" days in the lifetime of the
married couple. These days (the wedding
night, the first baby, the other woman,

the daughter's fiance, etc.) already have
an aura of the cliche around them. The
Herculean task of separating them from
the familiar Hollywood stereotypes of the
situations was, with possibly one excep-
tion, not accomplished.
The freshest episode, and certainly the
only one that gave either character any
substantial depth, was the first scene in
the third act. There, Agnes, the wife, sensing
a void in life after the marriage of her
daughter decides she will leave Michael. The
quiet, clever analysis of the situation by the
husband ending in their reconciliation pre-
sents the single instance that suggests
either character has any fundamental in-
telligence or unexaggerated feeling.
As before, however, just as it seemed
a core of development had been struck,
the necessary closing of the episode forced
a readjustment and new preparation for
another patly contained interlude of do-
mestic storm or bliss. Consequently, as a
moving drama, "The Fourposter" failed.
As a "sheer" comedy, its humor consisted
too often of "this has happened to you"
situations which are supposed to be sure-
fire. The opening night audience, in gen-
eral, seemed to continue to find it so.
As for the production, there was no way to
pick which of the two stars to prefer. Both
showed real virtuosity, falling into extrava-
gance only when there was no way out.
They made the often senseless inconsisten-
cies of the characters into an asset. Each of
them was, with full assurance, both bold
and timid, sentimental and practical, calm
and aroused. Certainly they will be well

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP

..

WASHINGTON-Secretary of State Dean G. Acheson has just flown
to Europe, to put the semi-final touches to a grand design. The
new status of Germany; the German contribution to western defense;
the European army which so hopefully foreshadows a larger Euro-
pean union-these are great achievements. Or rather, they will be
great achievements if the signed agreements are ratified by the
French and German Parliaments.
Unfortunately these European successes cannot offset the
failures of our policy in other regions. In the Middle East and
South-East Asia, there are no urgent crises at the moment, to
occupy the headlines and force the policy makers to reach deci-
sions. But in both areas, there is the same pattern of dreary de-
terioration, with much the same causes, and with the same threat
of catastrophe ahead.
As any newspaper reader will remember, the trouble in the Middle
East began with the oil crisis in Iran; spread thence to Egypt and has
now transferred itself to French North Africa. A decisive effort might
have stopped the Iranian oil crisis at the outset. There was no su'ch
effort, since Britain and America were divided as to what should be
done.
Today, the picture in each of the three trouble centers is decidedly
ugly. In Iran, the regime of the aged Prime Minister Mohammed Mos-
sadegh has bankrupted the country. There is no cash left to pay the
army or maintain the pensions of the tens of thousands of unemployed
oil workers. Hence Mossadegh may fall. Yet there is little reason to
believe that the fall of Mossadegh will be the prelude to an oil settle-
ment. And nothing but an oil settlement which will replenish the de-
pleted treasury with oil revenues can save Iran from some sort of
final crack-up.
Equally, the British and Egyptians have now broken off their,.
talks about control of the Sudan and the presence of the British gar-
rison at Suez. These two issues have already caused the whole center
of Cairo to be burned by the mobs. A failure to settle them is like a
failure to de-fuse a bomb.
Finally, the French are now engaged in a violent struggle with
native nationalism in Tunisia, and the unrest is spreading to Mor-
occo. The situation in French North Africa might become more
manageable, if the source of infection were removed by settle-
ments in Egypt and Iran. As matters stand, things are likely to
go from bad to worse in this area which now contains our most
important overseas air bases.
In South-East Asia, the outlook is still more ominous. In Burma,
the Communists have united, are making alliances with the dissident
tribesmen and are directly threatening the feeble and distracted cen-
tral government. In Malaya, the British have yet to make any solid
progress in their costly, bloody struggle against the Communist guer-
rillas. And in Indo-China, the war against the Communist armies of
the Viet-Minh continues without interruption, and exhausting the re-
sources that France needs for Europe.
In almost any one of all these countries, a quite casual accident
will be enough to produce a full-scale catastrophe. In the case of
Indo-China, for example, the French people are increasingly hostile
to the war there, and increasingly worried about having to keep the'-
bulk of their armed forces in the Tongkink"delta while Germany re-
arms across the Rhine. At any moment, another reshuffle of the,
French Cabinet can produce a government unwilling to carry on the
Indo-China war. And then the choice will lie between filling the va-
cuum ourselves, or seeing all of South-East Asia go the way of China.

Overt Expression . . .
To the Editor:
AFTER reading Donna Hendle-
man's article concerning the
demonstration which took place
in front of the Ad. Building last
Friday, I realized that she and
others like her had received the
wrong impression of this attempt-
ed rally. She did not try to under-
stand this "emotional harangue"
as she called it. The rally was
comparatively unplanned and un-
organized. This was due to the
lack of time and the fact that it
was not backed by any campus
political organization. A group of
students who had had no previous
experience in organizing a dem-
onstration of this type felt that
something immediate should be
done to protest not only Hatcher's
.veto of the anti-bias clause but
also the disregarding of student
opinion by the administration. Be-
cause Hatcher vetoed this clause
over the recommendations of the
SL and the SAC he was obviously
ignoring the voice of thestudents.
It is true that there were only a
small number of students who
started the rally and took an ac-
tive part in it, but there were also
a large number of interested by-
standers who perhaps would have
participated if there had been a
speaker and if the rally had been
better organized.
Perhaps the rally was badly
planned but it must be remember-
ed that all other courses of action
had been closed. Many students
have used all the formal methods,
which have been at their dispos-
al. to express their opinions,sand
these methods have not been ef-
fective in influencing the actions
of the administration so far. Now
these students do not know what
effective means to use and it is
only natural that they should ex-
periment with this overt form of
expression.
It must be remembered that this
is only the first' attempt of stu-
dents on our campus to carry out
any thing of this sort-perhaps
in the future rallys of this type
will be better planned and there-
fore play a constructive part in
voicing student protest.

Riotous Spring .
To the Editor:
LIFE covers the campus riots this
this week, and quotes a pro-
found statement by sexpert Kin-
sey, that "Campus riots are a long
psychiatric a n d psychological
problem. ... "I don't know that I
qualify as an expert on anything,
much less sex, but I would like to
outline my ideas on the signifi-
cance of the "riotous Spring" we
have had.
Due to their forced involvement
in the prosecution of the national
policy, veterans returning from
WW II felt obliged, and were en-
couraged by some interests, to par-
ticipate actively on the political
scene. But when they learned that
action is slow and difficult, and
when the GI bill and a healthy
postwar economy provided the
basis for their material satisfac-
tion, they petered out of the social
action scene, leaving the admin-
istration of national problems to
their elders aid superiors, as they
had been trained to do in the
service.
The sprouts who missed the ser-
vice experience but grew up in its
shadow, had become accustomed
to a political scene in which policy
was not "decided," but forced by
events and circumstances beyond
control or comprehension. So the
apathy set in which several an-

but can't vote? Why are we so
unwelcome in the councils of de-
cision? We stood by, to let our
elders. solve the problems of the
world, and they have failed; fail-
ed to the extent that we stand at
the brink of international disaster
and on many a campus at the
point of losing our self respect.
This "Spring Madness" pheno-
mena is but one manifestation of
a general cry, "ENOUGH!" The
pot has come to a boil. As a grad-
uating senior I have one regret:
I won't be here in the Fall to see
the lid blow off.

Bicycle License e .
To the Editor:
THIS MORNING I was peaceful-
ly riding my bicycle down to
the corner to mail a letter home to
the effect that everything was go-
ing as unsmoothly as could be ex-
vected. Immediately behind me an
explosive blast on a police six en
caused my ascension to the top of
the nearest tree. My head became
full of every imaginable thought.
My conscience was having night-
mares! "What did I do now? Was
it the woman I hit the other day?
Did they find out?" The police
wagon wheels over in front of me
and the officer, debating whether
or not to draw his pistol, comes
flying out of the car. "WHERE IS
YOUR BICYCLE LICENSE?" Up-
on heaving a great sigh of relief,
I received a traffic ticket.
The city ordinance, "An Ordi
nance Aegulating the Operation
of Bicycles and Other Similar Ve-
hicles upon the public streets of
Ann Arbor," 1937, is now being en-
forced as of this last Thursday. In
other words, our city bloodsuckers
have just launched.another spring
offensive before we can escape
them for the summer. They have
even so planned that the amuse-
ment tax will be voted upon in
August when the student body is
away from campus. Nothing more
need be saidrabout these parasitic
practices, for which we get abso-
lutely nothing in return.
Just pray to the heavens above
that we be not taxed next fall for'
the sidewalks upon which we
tread.

To the Editor:
THE PAST few months on this
campus have seen a wave of
stormy controversy on a series of
subjects which have built up by
various organs and organizations
until the average student in this
school begins to adopt a culti-
vated attitude of "so what." The
average student comes here for
an education and at the same time
attempts to have as good a time
as he can. He has a wide choice
of activities which enable him to
have a good time. There are or-
ganizations which set forth cer-
tain social, political, and economic
views as just, righteous, and wor-
thy of firm and unyielding sup-
port by all college students every-
where. If they find harmless rec-
reation in these organizations,
fine. While we would consider cyn-
icism as lowering ourselves, we
simply cannot imagine, as our ul-
timate or even secondary purpose
in attending the University, to be
converted, instilled, indoctrinated,
or whatever it may be called, with
the opinions and beliefs of these
groups which are at their best ado-
lescent and at their worst, com-
pletely ridiculous. We personally
don't care what they do or say.
We just wish they would make a

.+MUSIC +

ENTHUSIASM and musicality sparked the
season's final concert by the University
Symphony under the direction of Wayne
Dunlap. Works both new and familiar were
presented in a varied program ranging from
the sixteenth century to the twentieth.
The opening number, a Canzon by Gabri-
eli, orchestrated by Hans David, was played
with brilliance and flourish. It is no more
than a fanfare-like ritornello repeated be-
tween virtuoso and melismatic variations by
the different orchestral choirs, and its sim-
plicity and brightness made it an excellent
curtain-raiser to the more serious works
which followed.
Perhaps the least successful performance
was the Brahms second symphony, but it
was not due to any lack of understanding
by the conductor. Dunlap brought out the
sweeping, romantic lyricism of the work,
and was fully aware of its classical structure,
the form that continues the symphonic tra-
dition established by Brahms' predecessors.
But the orchestra was unable to execute
gradual crescendos and subtle dynamic nu-
ances, with the result that many climaxes,
particularly in the first movement, were
reached too soon. In certain soli passages
the high winds were obscured, and the in-
tonation of the strings tended to be faulty,
but enthusiasm of players and conductor
amply compensated for the lack of finished
interpretation.
The second half of the program pre-
sented Robert Courte as viola soloist in
the Milhaud "Concertino d'ete" and the
Hindemith "Music of Mourning." Both
works are concerned with a lyric state-

ity of the viola. The mood is one of dra-
matic lyricism, and the style is simple,
in direct contrast to the Milhaud. No more
could be said of Courte's playing than that
he understood the meaning of the works
and played them with great sensitivity.
The rich vibrato he used in the Hinde-
mith was matched by a plaintive straight-
forkard tone in the Milhaud.
The concluding "Petrouchka," by Stravin-
sky, was the most successful performance
and it was a real accomplishment for all
concerned. The work is very difficult and
contains many intricate soloistic passages.
The performance was marked by coordina-
tion in the orchestra and precision of at-
tack. Petrouchka is truly a burlesque, as the
title implies, for Stravinsky has satirized
everything from an organ grinder's tune to
a waltz. It was very refreshing after the
seriousness of the three preceding works.
The concert as a whole had a scope broad-
er than most of today's orchestral programs,
and everyone involved should be congratu-
lated for bringing it to life.
-Donald Harris
In the wake of the blunders on Koje Is-
land and in the Grow diary, it is too easy
to overlook the very great and continuing
service done by the men of the armed
forces. It ought not to require an Armed
Forces Day, of course, for the Nation to ex-
press its gratitude to the men who have
served it well in its time of need. Special re-
cognition ought to be given today, however,
to the civilian soldiers and sailors and air-
men-the reservists and draftees-who have
