Big Powers
Conference
ALTHOUGH Prime Minister Churchill,
witl oppoRion leader Attlee backing
him up, has expressed a desire to hold a
Big Powers conference, Washington has
thus far appeared cool to the proposal,
choosing instead to base its hopes on the
Korean truce talks and the forthcoming
Austrian conference.
At a meeting of the House of Commons
Monday, the British Prime Minister stat-
ed his belief that the time was again ripe
for a top-level conference to try to settle
at least some of the differences between
the East and the West. There was no
reason why anyone should be frightened
by having a conference, he added.
The United States should carefully con-
sider Churchill's proposal before rejecting
it.
It is significant to note that no majore
East-West parley has been held since Pots-
dam in 1945. Since then, both the United
States and Russia have had changes in
their administration. Eisenhower, Malen-
kov, and Churchill have never conferred to-
gether as heads of their respective govern-
ments.
Although, as Churchill pointed out,
there would probably be no settlement of
themajor problems facing the world, small
disputes still could be resolved. Piecemeal
solutions of problems should not be dis-
dained.
Any small solution made at this time
could go a long way toward easing world
tension for a few years. Even though this
country would not be able to stop its pre-
paredness program, a slackening of pressure
at this time would be beneficial to us, both
from a military and a morale standpoint.
The refusal of the United States to take
part in such a parley would give Russia a
perfect opportunity for an anti-American
propaganda drive, and material to back up
her charges that the West does not really
want peace.
On the other hand, there are still ques-
tions that must be resolved before any
conference could be attempted. We must
be sure that such a meeting would not
damage the existing hopes for peace in
Korea or the future Austrian treaty talks.
Uncertainty about who the top man in
Russia really is and about Moscow's con-
trol over Peiping also enter into the pic-
ture. Thirdly, there is the problem of
which countries should be invited to such
a conference.
There is no way that the United States
can judge whether or not the Russians are
sincere in their present "peace overtures,"
or whether they would be merely making
another tactical manuever in attending such
a conference. However in the light of exist-
Ing conditions, no possibility for peace
should be overlooked. Churchill's proposed
meeting would at least force a showdown on
Russian peace sincerity, and might at the
same time accomplish a significant settle-
ment.

"TAXI," with Dan Dailey and Constance
Smith, and "THE SILVER WHIP," with
three men and some cheesecake.
A PRETTY Irish colleen (just off the boat)
and a New York cabbie who keeps a

blooming flower in his hack and a sharp
eye out for foolable customers are the prin-
ciples in this sometimes winsome, often fun-
hy and too sentimental comedy about love,
lost and found, during an all-day ride in the
big city.
Ed Neilson, ably portrayed by Dan Dai-
ley, is gruff, like a little bear, rough, he
thinks, and, despite his eager mother's
schemes, not interested in romantic en-
tanglements. Bent on owning his own cab,
Ed wants to meet the payments on his car,
is busy keeping two jumps ahead of his
bumpkin colleagues. These, a sleezy bunch
of stock characters, spend their off-time
betting on which month he will fail to
pay his debt.
With the inevitability of romance and fate,
the day before a payment is due, Ed finds a
customer he thinks will bring a mint (she
doesn't know her way around), but instead
she brings him trouble, trouble, trouble and
love.
Mary, or Constance Smith, is a girl with
lovely eyes and a brogue which seems to slip

'MANNERS AND MANHOOD3'
Hemingway- Big News
Of the Pulitzer Awards

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is another in a series
of commentaries on current topics by prominent
University faculty members. Today's author,
Prof. Robert F. Haugh of the English depart.
ment, teaches courses in creative writing and
literature and is a former major Hopwood award
winner.)
By ROBERT F. HAUGH
(Professor of English)
THE 1953 PULITZER Prizes, awarded un-
der the, auspices of the University of
Columlia Graduate School of Journalism,
offer a temptation to seek a trend and point
a' moral. Ernest Hemingway's first award,
for his short novel, The Old Man and the
Sea probably is the first of his books that
might have satisfied the original terms of
Joseph Pulitzer's 1916 bequest, which em-
phasized "wholesome atmosphere" and
"highest standards of manners and man-
hood." The selection of George Danger-
field's history, The Era of Good Feeling, a
study of the administrations of John Quincy
Adams and James Monroe, and the award
for the poetry of Archibald MacLeish, also
might support a theme of moral affirma-
tion in this middle decade of the twentieth
century.
The drama selection, however, would
.spoil the consistency of such a nice pat-
tern. William Inge's "The Picnic" follows
the picaresque doings of a noble savage
(Freudian version) who comes to a small
town and works changes upon assorted
susceptible women before he rides off
into the sunset. The statement of the
play, a kind of dramatic first cousin to
Steinbeck's novel, "The Wayward Bus,"
has none of the complexity or sad neces-
sity of Inge's previous "Come Back, Lit-
tle Sheba." It is, in fact, an earlier effort
doctored for Broadway by Joshua Logan.
But the selection of Hemingway's novel is
the big news of this year's awards. This long
overdue recognition is especially fortunate
because of the nature of The Old Man and
the Sea. For too long Hemingway has been
used as an epithet for disillusionment, des-
pair, and the "lost generation.' A whole
tradition has been created about his rejec-
tion of morality in Farewell to Arms: "Ab-
stract words such as glory, honor, courage
... were . . . obscene." Readers of The Sun
Also Rises formed quick impressions from
Jake's impotence, dissipation in Parisian
cafe society, Lady Brett's behavior, and pro-
nounced him a novelist of despair and ne-
gation. Critics made of his world a dreary
wasteland which it never was. His imita-
tors were dreary, but not Hemingway.
The prime value of a shining tale like
The Old Man and the Sea is that once read
it forms a filter through which one picks
up colors and shapes present all the time
in earlier Hemingway boks. Read again The
Sun Also Rises, for instance, and notice
how much more vivid are the fi*ing scenes
in the mountains above Pamploma, how
sharp the air, how sparkling the water, how
firm and cold the trout. Or, notice the vigor
and color of the bullfight chapters which
celebrate courage and beauty in behavior.
Or look again at A Farewell to Arms and

discover the strength and steadfastness of
the love affair.
The important think about Heming-
way, the thing that distinguishes him from
his train of imitators, is that in his in-
stance "disillusionment" implies illusions
recently held-so recently held that they
still function to give vitality to his cos-
mos. If he walked in a wasteland, he
kept his face turned toward the green hills
and sparkling streams, and his fervent
yearning for them quickened his keen
sense of loss. So with their moral coun-
terparts: courage, love, honor, steadfast-
ness.
Why does The Old Man and the Sea serve
to polarize a widespread faulty vision ofi
Hemingway? Perhaps because, for the first
time, here is a Hemingway novel without a
complex social situation. In all his others
he has put his hero in society: military,
political, criminal, cafe, and his images of
defeat, of exile, of sexual aberration, were
persuasively stated in social patterns that
absorbed our attention. Here is only the
old man and the sea, the elements and the
sharks. The tale is so simply constructed as
to be almost a parable. The only other
character is a boy, whose function is to
dramatize the resolution of the old man's
struggle with the sea. When the old man
comes back, beaten yet not beaten, for he
has revealed an exalted nobility of spirit,
the boy comes to stay with him, to say, "Rest
well, old man." The boy thus establishes the
bond of humanity which Hemingway so
massively dramatized in For Whom the Bell
Tolls, but which has concerned him all along.
Perhaps too, readers find meanings here
because for the first time in a major work,
the principal figure is not a restless exile,
inhabiting cafes and bars, without home,
family, wife or children. Here is an old man
who has a hut and a boat, both very much
the stuff of his existence; and he is like a
father to a boy, who belongs to him as if
by blood at the end.
Most of all, I think, is the tone of the
writing: sharp odors of the salt sea, hot
sun, clean steel of the hook, and the cruel
strength of the line. The rightness of
the old man, who belongs where he is in
his world of sun-baked rope and wood,
who understands the sea because it is part
of him, who accepts the great fish as an
adversary designed to bring him to the
limits of mortal experience, likewise gives
stature to the tale. I say nothing of sym-
bolism, of Christ images, of Moby Dick
echoes; they are there for those who seek
them.
It is a tale of courage, of fortitude, of
shining moral qualities. Having read it, we
can see that Hemingway was talking about
such qualities of the human spirit all along;
that like a writer who creates a moral uni-
verse from his use of the materials of im-
morality, he wrote of exiles to create a
more splendid vision of home.
I'm sure that all must rejoice in the recog-
nition through this most American of prizes,
of the oid man of twentieth century Ameri-
can writing.

ADMINISTRATORS have established a
new weapon for keeping students in line.
To quote Michigan State's Dean of Stu-
dents Tom King (one of many administra-
tors in several schools who could be quot-
ed): "I don't see how any student who
took part in that affair (panty raid, May
11) could have the guts to show up for
class this morning when he was deferred
while some other boys are still overseas
ducking bullets."
This is the weapon and should the panty
raid fever or any other rage take hold, stu-
dents will be hearing a lot more of it.
This type of scolding became prevalent
last spring when the panty raids first broke
out. Then, as now, it is aimed at panty
raiders in particular, but it hits right at
the nerve of male undergraduates as a
whole.
Especially when collegians stray to some
so-called irresponsible acts is the pres-
sure brought to bear. Adult groups begin
to look upon the college man as a criminal
who hasn't the good sense to keep his es-
cape from justice quiet.
But is the college man escaping from his
responsibility?
The average student knows he isn't nor
does he want to. If he is in the ROTC, he
knows he must serve at least two years on
active duty upon graduation. At the same
time he is taking a four-year course in offi-
cer training which will make him a mores
valuable man to the service and his country.
If he is not in ROTC, the college man
is still fully aware that he will, undoubt-
edly, be called to serve at some future
date. In fact, it is quite possible that he
may not even complete his education since
deferments are based in part on class
standing.
Therefore, the college man is not getting
away with anything. If he is being allowed
to finish his education before entering the
service he is helping his country as much
as himself, since the nation, as well as the
army, needs well-trained, well-educated

ally nagged with "Don't act this way-since
someone not so fortunate as you is fighting
in Korea." It is much like the age-old "How
can you leave your meal unfinished when
people in Europe are starving?"
Draft board pressure, of course, is no
reason for panty raids. Nor is this meant
to be a defense of the raids. Such acts,
lacking any originality and being too des-
tructive to be termed 'funny,' are beyond
defense. Goldfish swallowing is much less
harmful.
But college students don't have to feel
ashamed that they are in college. Nor
should administrators attempt to punish
rowdy acts by making them feel ashamed
and guilty.
In reality, the man in Korea is fighting
so that Americans will always have an op-
portunity to go to college.
-Murry Frymer
On the Latest Raid
ONCE MORE it appears that mere man,
witless sap that he always is around
young female beauty, especially in this
weather, dashed into a cunningly set co-
educational trap . . . If a college teaches
no higher aspiration, here's a suggestion:
Military service in Korea.
-The Detroit Free Press
WHEN Sir Winston Churchill speaks on
foreign affairs, we hear what is probably
the most qualified and is certainly one of
the wisest voices on the subject in the free
world. This is not in any sense a derogation
of those who speak on this side of the ocean,
nor is it a blanket endorsement of what-
ever the Prime Minister says. But his propos-
al that "a conference on the highest level
should take place between the leading Pow-
ers without long delay" is a case in which
Sir Winston was speaking for all of Europe.

life than the most benighted per-
son on this earth.
Coming to the question: Israel
is there, what can the Arabs do
about it, the answer is simple: ab-
solutely nothing.
Israel cannot possibly survive
without the economic cooperation
of the Arabs, this they will not
get. As the years go by Israel will
begin to disintegrate, to.avert that
inevitable disintegration it is very
conceivable that Israel will invade
its neighbors. This, ,we believe,
will make Palestine the graveyard
of Zionism.
If Israel wants to make peace
with the Arabs, they should begin
by allowing all the Arab refugees
to go back to their homes and
by obeying the decisions of the
United Nations such as the In-
ternationalization of Jerusalem.
Not until then could the Arabs be
expected to consider any sort of
cooperation with Israel.
