First Come,
First Spanked
"FIRST COME, first served-so get here
early."
. Taking this admonition from the Office
of the Dean of Women literally Univer-
sity coeds, in an April Fools Day epi-
sode that had very little humor value, be-
gan to queue up before the Administra-
tion Building at 3 a.m. on the morning of
April 1 to apply for University League
housing. By 7:30 a.m., the scheduled time
at which women may leave the dorms, an
estimated 100 coeds had formed what was
termed by Dean of Women Deborah Ba-
con "a crowd such as one might see at a
fire sale ... but not at the University of
Michigan."
In a concentrated effort to beat everyone
else out in the anticipated (and customary)
rat-race for this type of living accommoda-
tion, these women had faced the choice of
either breaking dormitory regulations or los-
ing any chance for houses of their prefer-
ence. They chose to break the regulations.
But because of this breach of regulation,
the. University has been able to deem this
occurrence a "disciplinary problem" rather
than one of housing or poor administration,
and a number of the offenders have been
referred to Woman's Judiciary Council for
action.
It must be evident Jby now that'the real
solution does not lie in the disciplining
of the so-called "fire sale" crowd, but
rather in the establishment of a more ef-
ficient system of registration for League
housing. The administration might do
well to investigate its own policies and
attitude on this matter, and give some
consideration to a different means of reg-
istration in the future. Some way should
be found that will eliminate the need to
beat out one's rivals in the wee hours of.
the morning in order to get into desir-
able League housing units.
Martha Cook dormitory, for instance, op-
erates on a policy whereby residents are
selected from the numerous applicants by
meeting specific requirements. Final choice
is made after an interview with the house-
mother. This same method might be sat.-
isfactorily employed by League housemoth-
ers.
The simplicity of the "first come first
served" League house policy now in use
has proved, in practice, to be grossly in-
adequate. The University cannot ignore
the need for an organized system for Lea-
gue house registration, perhaps modeled
along the lines of the Cook plan.
The present policy of treating the whole
matter as nothing more than a "discipli-
nary problem" is a perfect example of
shrewd blame-shifting.

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
*Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON-It has sometimes hap-
pened that the State Department has
had to squirm out of statements made by
the President of the United States, but not
for years-until last week-has the White
!House had to deny a statement inspired by
a Secretary of State.
But last week the situation was reversed
when the White House issued a blunt de-
nial of news stories which everyone in Wash-
ington, including the Russian embassy,
knew came directly from John Foster Dulles
himself.
Dulles has held a press conference for
about twenty newsmen at which he delin-
"seated important new U.S. policy as follows:
1-That the United States would ac-
cept peace in Korea at a line drawn along
the narrow waste about 80 miles north of
the present battle front;

2-That the' United States would prob-
ably confine Chiang Kai-Shek to Formosa
and put it under a UN trusteeship.
Stories based upon the Dulles press con-
ference were immediately published by the
New York Times and other papers, attri-
buted not directly to him but "to high offi-
cial sources."
Experienced observers knew who this
was and those who didn't know found out
very quickly.
A few hours after publication, the White
House issued its flat denial indirectly re-
buking the Secretary of State.
KINDERGARTEN DIPLOMACY
THERE WERE two big reasons for this
extraordinary action:
A. The Conservative wing of the Repub-
lican Party will blow its top at any aban-
donment of Chiang Kai-Shek.
B. Dulles' press conference gave Moscow
a beautiful advance tip as to how far we
would go in any Korean peace talks.
As one friendly diplomat put it:
"When you're playing poker for the peace
of the world you don't tell the man oppo-
site you what cards are in your hand. Mr.
Dulles must be living in a naive world in-
deed. He must think he's playing with
matchsticks in. the kitty. Doesn't he know
that by midnight the Kremlin will have
these news stories thoroughly dissected and
will know just what's behind them?
"Beginning tomorrow," continued the
ambassador, "the Russians will raise the
ante-both in Asia and in Europe-thanks
to your new brand of kindergarten dip-
lomacy."
President Eisenhower didn't have to wait
long before he heard from the right-winp

By ZANDER HOLLANDER
Daily Feature Editor
THREE DAYS spent in the nation's capi-
tal can hardly be the basis for many
profound insights. Nevertheless, with no
more than a vacation junket in Washing-
ton to draw upon, several items can be
reported prominent in the mental climate
of this country's capital.
Washington-official and unofficial-
is worried by all sorts of things. A rank-
' ing of worries might start with transport.
The District commission several years
ago permitted its transit system to be
purchased by a group of investors headed
by a shrewd Florida businessman.
Outside the district environs Capital
Transit, as it is known, is noted primarily
for its dubious contribution to music
through the large-scale development of the
"captive audience" technique; it is Capital
Transit which has provided most of the
grist for the New Yorker's cartoon mill.
Most Washingtonians, however, are din-re-
sistant, perhaps because th'eir sensibilities
are concerned with more delicate signals.
Queried about the audial cross they bear
on their trolley trips, many claim to fot
hear the music pouring into the car from
all parts of the ceiling. Almost all have de-
veloped a happy knack of turning off the
auditory-faculties upon the clacking sing-
song of the commercial. An adaptable breed,
our civil servants.
Other innovations are not so easily to-
lerated; "though these have aroused little
concern beyond district lines. Capital
Transit's operational history since the
transfer has been one of steadily increas-
ing fares with steadily declining service.
Currently the company is pressing for a
20 cent mare-at last report it 'as 17
cents-and this after discontinuing ser-
vice on several marginal lines. Car-pool
arrangements have multiplied, and not
only in the directly affected areas. Ask
a Washingtonian about public versus pri-
vate transit and, if he is a bus or trolley
habitue, private enterprise will take some
harsh knocks.
Most of our informants were agreed that
what is taking place is little better than a
holdup, Capital Transit has made sub-
stantial' profits for its owners, who have
milked heavy returns through the reduced
services and the "unwarranted" hike in
fares. Now, many District citizens charge,
the company is renewing its plea for a fare
rise only to force the District commissioners
to buy the system from private enterprise
-at a whopping profit for private enter-
prise.
This alleged "blackmail" is a favorite to-
pic of conversation aboard Washington's
transit vehicles; in its businesses and of-
fices may be found the second ranking in
a pantheon of worries, government economy
and its effects.
. * *.
SO FAR ECONOMY has been largely a
matter of headlines. Aside from a few
almost-token cuts, like the discharge of
40,000 clerks and typists in the Department
of Defense, there have been no real econo-
mies effected. Nevertheless, the spectre of
economizing hangs heavy over official
Washington and because official Washing-
ton is unofficial Washington's customer,
over the latter as well.
This is not altogether bad; many civil
servants, it is said, are making themselves
more valuable to their departments than
they have been in years. Even this, how-
ever, cannot cancel out the several dele-
terious effects of too-long impending eco-
nomy measures.
Many bureaucats are paralyzed, for all
effective purposes, by the uncertainty. Plan-
ning is virtually stagnated by the planners'

unsure tenure and operating resources. The
challenge of leadership is not being taken
up for fear that a positive move now might
be just the mistake which would bring dis-
charge in a personnel-cutting wave.
All but intimate informants present a bold
front; a government employe will insist
that it is not he who is getting the axe,
that his divisional chief had assured him he
was safe. If this turns out to be true, there
-will have been no economies whatsoever.
Most of these confident bureaucrats are
whistling in the dark, notwithstanding.
An observer comes away from Washing-
ton with the strong conviction that if
economies are to be effected, it is im-
perative that they be carried out with
despatch and decisively. Delay, with the
hint of more layoffs to come, will only
prolong what is already a dangerous sit-
uation in our nation's capital. Uncertain-
ty over the extent and direction of cuts,
which saps our national initiative, must
be held to a minimum if the economy pro-
gram is not to do more harm to our na-
tional government than it does good for
the nation as a whole.
When they are not worrying about the
transit system or their jobs, Washington-
ians seem to worry most of all about the in-
ternational situation and its latest compli-
cations, the current Soviet "peace offen-
sive."
* * *
THE IMPRESSIONS gained at the lower
and intermediate levels of Washington
opinion in this ara are more than a little
alarming to a visiting observer.
Even in such supposedly well-informed
circles as the Central Intelligence Agency
and the Department of State, there is the
persistent belief that this time the Soviets
are in earnest, that with the change in
leadership has come a sincere change in
attitude and not merely a tactical revi-
sion of policy.
Loaded with danger as this view of the
"peace offensive" is, an observer can only
hope that it is not held at levels above those
accessible to a casual reporter. To believe
that the Soviet Union will henceforth ac-
knowledge the "peaceful coexistence" of
communist and capitalist spheres and to or-
der our own policies on that assumption
could prove an irrevocable act of the high-
est folly.
If this analysis of the Soviet's recent
series of overtures prevails, the nation could
wake upy one morning to a world situation
which finds us virtually defenseless against
an insuperable aggressor.
It would seem the wiser course to pro-
ceed on the assumption that the "peace
offensive" represents little more than a
tactical change, accepting concessions
warily and reciprocating only in kind and
to like extent. Such a course is most likely
to precipitate that sincere reversal in So-
viet approach which the West has bent
its efforts toward through the "contain-,
ment" policy. Most important, this reac-
tion to the Soviet shift in emphasis does
not have the perilous irrevocability of the
former course. If it doesn't work out, we
can still change our minds; to swallow
the recent change in the Party line whole
is to risk having our mninds changed for
us by national disaster.
In this respect, as in the other two, it
may be seen that Washingtonians are some-I
times little different from the rest of us.
This is somewhat unfortunate. Washing-
tonians, or at least some Washingtonians,
should be a good deal better than the bulk
of Americans in the areas which concern
our national and international well-being.
A stay in the capital of even three days in-
dicates that this is largely true. Indica-
tions to the contrary, however, should be of
the greatest concern to all of us. .

Mythology .. .
To the Editor:
THE RECENT policy statement
of the A.A.U., supported with
qualifications by Cal Samra and
Prof. Sharfman, represents an in-
consistent position. While pur-
portedly attacking the methods of
McCarthy, Jenner, Velde & Co.,
the A.A.U. resolution accepts their
goals and the premises upon which
their work is based. The A.A.U.
resolution adds up to a retreat on
the question of civil liberties, mak-
ing concessions which we in the
academic community particularly
can ill afford.
One cannot consistently con-
demn witch-hunts, and admit the
existence of witches. One cannot
consistently attack the principle
of inquisitions into heresy, while
admitting that there is a heresy
which must be purged from the
mind of manL One cannot con-
sistently defend academic free-
dom-defined, let us say, as the
principle that academic qualifi-
cations suffice to determine the
fitness of a person to teach-and
hold that adherence. to certain po-
litical views or membership in the
Communist Party automatically
render one unfit to teach.
The rationalization for the
A.A.U. position rests on a myth-
ology. The assumption is that
membership in the Communist
Party ipso facto makes one a
conspirator and a traitor, com-
pletely lacking in integrity and
intellectual honesty, docilely fol-
lowing a "line" on orders from
above and hence incapable of
contributing to the advance of
knowledge and education. I label
this assumption a rationalization
and a mythology, because it is not
a generalization based on an ex-
amination of the teaching rec-
ords, scholarly publications, etc.,
of the individual professors cited
as "Un-American" by Congres-
sional committees-if such inves-
tigations were to be made, they
might prove an altogether differ-
ent point. It is, rather, a most
unscholarly acceptance of a cold-
war mythology.
A very good reason why no proof
has been advanced for that as-
sumption, of course, is the logicl
truth that there can be no proof
of a false proposition.

YR Convention
To the Editor:
THE Young Republicans of the
midwest had a convention
about a week ago. I did not at-
tend, but from newspaper reports
I understand they did three im-
portant things at this great meet-
ing:
1. They sanctioned the give-
away of our natural resources.
2. They endorsed the McCarran
Immigration Act.
3. They gave a vote, of confi-
dence to that fine American
statesman, Joe McCarthy of Wis-
consin.
Now last November we. heard
Hazel M. Losh Observatory, by Friday
afternoon. Members of other Chapters
are invited.
Russky Chorus. There will be a meet-
ing of the Russky Chorus this Wednes-
day at 7:30 in the Bell Tower, ninth
flor. Those enrolled in Russian classes
are invited to attend.
The W.A.A. Folk and Square Club
will meet on Wed., Apr. 15, from a to
10 p.m. in the W.A.B. Everyone wel-
come.
The Undergraduate Botany Club
meets Wed., Apr. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in
1139 Natural Science Building. Dr. E. E.
Steiner, of the Botany Department, will
talk. Everyone invited.
Roger Williams Guild. Midweek Chat

4:30 to 5:45. Baptists drop in anytime

ship meets at 7 a.m. Thursday in the

vited to attend.

how the old guard haa been over-
thrown by the new "liberal" wing
of the G.O.P. They, with Ike as
their leader, were going to lead a
"Great Crusade." Well, Ike may
still be sincere about leading these
reformers, but I fear his young-
sters are no longer eager to fol-
low. Thinking Americans can on-
ly conclude that the G.O.P., whe-
ther run by the Taftian "old
guarders" or the insurgent young
"liberals," is still the same sordid
bunch of petty politicians it has
been since Teddy Roosevelt left
the fold, and its motto is still the
same: "Cheat the American peo-

Race Relations :. .
To the Editor:
I HAVE READ Mr. Botero's ans-
wer to my previous letter with
interest. I liked the way he
brought out all my points; but I
find is necessary to make my posi-
tion clear before I end up being
called a "subversive."
First, about the "American su-
periority" attitude. Mr. Botero
tends to agree that such a thing
exists, although he says it is'some-
thing "understandable." I am not
arguing whether this thing is jus-
tifiable or not, I am only com-
plaining that when you are among
the people labelled "backward"
that superiority feeling is irritat-
ing.
Second, about race relations. I
feel I can make criticisms on this
topic because I have been in this
country for 6 years, of which I.
have spent 2 in Georgia. What I
saw there, and what I have seen
here, although in a much lesser
scale I must admit, left me with
an impression very different from
the one Mr. Botero seems to have!
I have spoken about this problem
because if we have anything that
can be called "good" in Venezuela
(or in Latin America in general)
it is good race relations. I am not
trying to say we are better than
the Americans because we have
better race relations. The reason
the situation is so, is purely his-
torical: It is virtually impossible
to have discrimination along ge-
netic lines in a country in which
the majority of the people are nei-
ther White, nor Negro, nor Indian,
but a mixture of all!! The situa-
tion is very different here. No-
body can' deny there is a lot of
discrimination in American cul-
ture towards the Degro race, for
instance. I don't disagree that
there are some people who are sin-
cere in their wish to end this sit-
uation, but there are still many
more who are in great conflict be-
tween what they "say" and how
they "behave."
To close, Mr. Botero asks me
what has been done in my coun-
try to improve the situation of
the peon. My only answer is: noth-
ing. But I don't believe anything
can be done either by waving "An-
ti Peon-Discrimination" banners,
or by making a lot of empty nois-
es.

'Mouth-Filling' .
To the Editor:
I AM WRITING to. recommend
that Bernie Backhaut's friends
take up a collection to further his
education. I specifically suggest
that they furnish him with a dic-
tionary, for it will help him to
avoid such errors as he committed
in his last letter. I quote: ". . . a
wise student . . . will always in-
form the Alumni, State Legisla-
ture, and other beneficiaries etc."
The dictionary would have pre-
vented Bernie's confusing benefi-
ciaries and benefactors. The as-

piring young poetaster quite evi-
dently found a word of mouth-
filling potentialities, but he was
not able to establish its meaning.

BWANA DEVIL, with Robert Stack, Bar-
bara Britton, and Three Dimensions.
IF THIS is an example of what we are to
expect in the way of three-dimensional
motion pictures, then I propose the founding
of a "Flatties" Society. Technically, and
technique is apparently all this picture is
meant to show, this process is far from satis-
factory. The necessity for wearing polaroid
glasses and for keeping the head perfectly
still in order to receive the full effect makes
watching the film a very uncomfortable or-
deal.
The principle involved is similar to that
of the old stereoscope in which the polaroid
glasses are made to merge the double images
on the film into a single, rounded picture.
It is not new, and was used, I believe, even
before sound movies were perfected,
As to the story selected to be the first
to appear before 3-D cameras, it is cer-
tainly one of the worst ever filmed. The
reneral idea sems to he the ned tail

ly to action when
ing up his crew.

the lion starts chew-

At this point the British government be-
comes alarmed and sends a group of lion-
hunters to aid him; Stack's wife, Barbara
Britton, comes with them. Her function is
only to complicate her husband's neurotic
condition, though why we never know.
Stack's single-handed extermination of his
devils-somewhere along the line the lions
become symbolic for whatever it is that
troubles him-makes everybody happy and
ends the picture.
None of the acting talent, not even
Nigel Bruce's, seems worth all this trouble
and publicity. The sole aim of the picture
is to present things in three dimensions;
spears are thrown into the camera, lions
leap at it, dancers kick at it. It is simply
thickness for thickness' sake, and the bad-
ly managed method of producing it leaves
the film with no attraction at all.
Perhaps with a little more experimenta-
tion and study three-dimensional films can
become technically satisfactory. This would
leave only the choice of subject-matter to be
settled; intelligence and good taste are cer-
