Sovereignty-A
Block to Peace
THE REPEATED FAILURES of the world
to even approach a 'situation of peace,
dramatically emphasized by refusals of na-
tions to concede, compromise, or agree, tends
to prove only one fact: world peace will never
be realized during the life of the concept of
national sovereignty.
National sovereignty, the most integral
-part of the broader concept of nationalism
with all its pride and distrust of foreign
a nations, was born of man's need for se-
curity and his hope for it in the collectiv-
ism of national governments. Security, as
the purpose behind nationalism, is the
dominant factor in international relations.
International relations, of course, arose
froi the existence of separate nations. By
definition, international relations require
the existence of states. However, it is today's
concept of state sovereignty, necessarily con-
' tining an pbsession for security, that causes
the immense difficulties involved in interna-
tional relations.
This intense drive for security, which is
manifested in the proud and belligerent be-
havior of nations, is the reason why nations
refuse to concede or give ground in their
dealings with other nations. They feel that
they must protect themselves by not giving
any other nation state a chance to take ad-
vantage of them. And they often perceive
;any move by another nation as an en-
croachment on their own security or sov-
ereignty, Consequently, they are indeed wary
of agreeing to any compromises.
Probably a more illustrative example
of this cannot be found than the refusals
of nations to surrender any part of their
sovereignty to the United Nations. The
insistence of the United States and Russia
upon a veto power in the UN during the
San Francisco conferences has resulted
in a definite lack of effectiveness in the
UN and a serious obstacle to world peace.
This attitude of national sovereignty has
created in the United States a fear and sus-
picion of the United Nations lest it deprive
us of our sovereign power. The antagorrism
of Senator Knowland to the UN, and the
California ruling to prevent the use of a
UNESCO pamphlet in the schools because
it supposedly infringed upon our national
sovereignty are pertinent examples of the
attitude's strength.
The concept of national sovereignty is
both cause and effect of the western sys-
tem of nation states which is anarchy.
Insistence on national independence and
sovereignty causes a freedom from obliga-
tion to any power, and this freedom results
in the continuation of the attitude and the
behavior emerging..from it. National gov-
ernments were established to end the in-
security of anarchy, but the same political
autonomies are now victims of the identi-
cal anarelial insecurity on a much great-
er scale.
A certain amount of security exists with-
-I a nation because there is law and order
instead of anarchy. It seems that a similar
system of enforcable law operating over the
entire world would bring the same amount of
security and peace that a nation can insure
within itself.
National sovereignty, as an ideal, has be-
come an antiquated concept, although still
the most powerful force in international
relations. It is time for a new concept to re-
place it. For, although temporary peace may
*be- reached somehow under the present con-
ditions, permanent peace cannot be realized
while any nation has the freeedom to break
that peace. A system of law and order over
the entire world is the only answer to the
problem of world peace.

DREW PEARSON:
Washington

Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON - The :President is becom-
ing increasingly moody over the short-
comings of certain cabinet members. Here is
the general line-up of how the Cabinet rates
with Ike.
He takes an increasingly dim view of
Secretary of State Dulles.
Secretary of Defense Wilson annoys him.
Secretary of Agriculture Benson is liked,
but the President has begun to realize that
the farmers don't.
Secretary of Labor Durkin seems to make
no impression on the President, isregarded
as a necessary evil.
Secretary of Interior McKay has left the
President pretty much alone, knows how to
get things done without ruffling White House
waters.
Attorney General Brownell and Post-
master General Summerfield rank high,
somewhere behind Secretary of the Treas-
ury Humphrey.
Ike is concerned about the health of his
legislative liaison expert Gen. Wilton B.
Persons. Persons is a No. 1 advocate of com-
promise with Ike's enemies in Congress. This
policy now shows signs of failure, and Per-
sons' health may force him to withdraw
from the job.
Ike has also lost some of his enthusiasm
for his Chief of Staff, former Gov. Sher-
man Adams of New Hampshire. Adams
has his eye on Sen. Styles Bridges' seat
which is up for grabs next year, and this
could be Adams' cue to bow out of the

PART II
EUROPEANSHIP: OR HOW TO BE
A CAD ON THE CONTINENT
T HOUGH burdened by baggage, passport
and language difficulties the experienced
touristman never abandons the elementary
ploys which have made Americans stand
out so prominently.
* * * '
LINGUISTIC PLOYS:
There are only two linguistic choices open
to the Languageman; American spoken with
a fiat, nasal mid-western twang or the lang-
ugae of whatever particular country he is
in, spoken so fast and with such perfect
grammar that the native of' that country
finds it difficult to understand.
A low unintelligible mumble of French in
Italy, Italian in Germany and Spanish in
Yugoslavia are also allowed but not recom-
mended.

**

*

AMERICANONLYMANSHIP:
For the I-speak-American-onlyman ora-
torical volume and gestures are suggested.
If a foreigner refuses to understand Ameri-
can repeat the phrase slightly louder in a
kind of baby-talk. (This refusal to under-
stand American is practised by European-
men religiously, and is obviously only an af-
fectation.)
* * *
HAM AND EGGMANSHIP:
A master in the art of Gourmetmanship
never refuses to taste a foreign dish. He also
never agrees to partake of one. A small taste,
a polite forced smile, a murmured no thank
youand "ham and eggs" to the waiter is all
that is necessary.
Ham and eggs may be obtained in various
forms and varying resemblance to the "good
old American dish" and one need never in-
dulge in higlhy seasoned, exoticly prepared
delicacies of the continent.
COUNTERWINEMANSHIP PLOYS:
There is one exception to the Ham and
Eggmanship gambit. When wishing to tor-
ture one's European host with a bit of coun-
terwinemanship, it becomes necessary to or-
der a rare delicate seafood dish and insist it
be accompanied by red wine. This will prob-
ably set your host's teeth on edge and is
especially effective when followed by an or-
der for light French pastry and a coke.
Always demand ice cubes in wine and ket-
chup with viandes and steak well-done. Al-
though these gambits may seem to run coun-
ter-gourmetmanship as practiced in Ameri-
ca they are recommended on the continent
to further the impression Europeans have of

Americans-that we are wild, flighty bar-
barians.
As long as this impression remains intact,
ordinary pleasures not available to the civi-
lized man will be available to the Tourist-
man.
* * *
SIGHTSEEING PLOYS:
Upon first sight of the Eiffel tower subtle
reference to a radio tower back home in
Oxford Mississippi, that is twice as high is
the true sightseeingmanship ploy.
A University touristman should never miss
an opportunity upon seeing the Colleseum in
Rome to remark "Our Stadium in Michigan
sits 98,000 and the walls are in much better
condition."
A little more subtle but just as delightful
is to stop some citizen and ask "pardon me,
can you direct me to the Arch of Triumph,"
while standing directly across the street from
this reknowned structure.
An unenthusiastic "is that it?" will do
wonders to dampen any native Italian's en-
thusiasm for his own dear Pitti Palace.
* * *
TIPPINGMANSHIP:
A real touristman always demands to have
the manager show him to his room, knowing
it is an insult to tip the manager. If the man-
ager is not available and a bellhop insists on
performing the ritual, carries the baggage
to the room, opens windows, arranges flow-
ers then holds out his hand, reach for it
and give him a friendly handshake as hand-
clasps are European "musts." Everyone
shakes hands on the continent.
* * *
I'M - GOING - TO - LIVE - LIKE - A - NA-
TIVEMAN SHIP:
Live-like-a-nativemen never fore-go lux-
uries of living like American tourists. Only
an amateur touristman would endure cafe
and croissant for breakfast, Continental
wages and only a minimum of English speak-
ing servants. A beret or French poodle will
be sufficient to create a nativelike effect.
Bathing once a month is a Continental lux-
ury Touristman should investigate.
EXPERT-ON-AMERICANA GAMBITS:
A touristman is never daunted by Euro-
pean experts on American life. Such experts
will do their best to trip up the casual tour-
ist by asking pointed questions or making
highly technical statements for said tourist's
verification.
"Not in the South" is an approprate retort
to any such statement. Become a specialist
on some small segment of Americana such
as the northwest portion of the Grand Can-
yon and subtly switch all conversation to the
northwest portion of the Grand Canyon.

Taj Mahal. .
To the Editor:
AFTER five years on campus I
have found a comment suffi-
ciently important and sincere to
merit a response from an other-
wise conservative reader. Concern-
ing Miss Patterson's letter (17
May) I must first acknowledge
guilt and error in viewing the
Taj from one prejudiced angle,
and considering it only as a beauti-
ful building built to commemor-
ate a beloved woman Upon fur-
ther consideration I am appalled
at mysshortsightedness. Had Miss
Patterson been able to leave her
research (and I admire her in-
terest) on the Taj, to attend the
dance. I can imagine her horror
at finding even greater tombs, un-
derscoring my ignorance of things
Egyptian. The ghastly scene has
further been complicated by my
reckless choice of a sacred moun-
tain. (The subject of several an-
onymous letters concerning my ir-
reverence and blasphemy.)
I now feel compelled to write
this letter since it has been called
to my attention that in the most
recent repainting of the Tour Eif-
fel (and it really isn't blue and
silver at all, I must confess) a de-
ceased bird (un moineau) was
found on the first observation
landing. I have since had little rest
at the thought of the ghoulish
memories I must have forced on
the unfortunate dancers. Perhaps
in searching for some beauty in
an accuracy-minded world I fail-
ed to foresee that a few can not
see the doughnut for the hole, nor
the Taj Mahal for a dead queen.
For this lack of foresight I apolo-
gize.

Miss Barry . ..
To the Editor:
AFTER reading the article on
"Naidoo's Informer" by Rhoda
Barry, one cannot help but con-
clude that Miss Barry is out to
distort facts to appeal for mali-
cious purposes to the sentiments of
Americans.
She claimed she is concerned
with people from her country
causing more bloodshed. But in
her letter to the Minister of In-
terior of South Africa she labelled
Mr. Naidoo an "Asiatic." (The
word "Asiatic" is a misnomer to
Asians). She claims to be a citi-
zen of South Africa; but denies
another citizen the same birth
right. She desires to stop blood-
shed in South Africa; yet sup-
ports the very system that breeds
more bloodshed. Who does not
know that the doctrine of "Apar-
theid," which disfranchises the
majority of the citizens must end
in bloodshed? Perhaps she thinks
that the rest of the 180 million
Africans will be satisfied when
she, (a member of the minority)
is free to attend College but others
(majority) are denied that op-
portunity. Will Africans forever
worship Malan and his regime?
Miss Barry cited the murder of
a white nun; but omitted the
shooting down of 14 African Ne-
groes in the same riot. To her one
white is more important than 14
blacks. Her internal security of
South Africa means internal exter-
mination of African Negroes. If
she thinks that all are entitled to
their own opinion, why spy on Mr.
Naidoo for expressing his own
opinion?
It is a pity that Miss Barry's
education in this country makes no
difference in her. From her ac-
tions it is easy to deduce that she
is another South African racist.
I sympathize with her for not
reading the "handwriting on the

wall." If she needs internal se-
curity she should fight against
"apartheid." No other solution is
adequate. I advise her to join Mr.
Naidoo achieve racial equality and
peace in South Africa.

Election Violaters . . .
To the Editor:
T HAS NOW been three weeks
since the Strauss House Presi-
dent wrote a letter to Ted Bohusze-
wicz, IHC Chairman, charging that
in the last election six candidates
broke not only Strauss House, but
also East Quad, West Quad, South
Quad, and University Regulations
concerning solicitation of votes
and signatures.
Although Mr. Bohuszewicz has
had ample time to consider these
charges, he has not seen fit to
summon the IHC Judiciary to
judge this matter. This is espec-
ially alarming in view of the
hasty action taken against Bob
Perry. While Perry merely placed
literature under doors, these six
men entered rooms soliciting votes
and s ignresvp for.their fletitions,

Glee Club's Answer Spring Concert. The same ad could

dial relations in the future. We
think you are doing a very fine job
in presenting college glee club
singing to the nation.,
In order that students, alumni,
and friends may know how the
Club feels, the above portion will
appear in the Michigan Daily. I
hope this explains things a bit
more clearly. It was a great thrill
to work with you and Mr. Lewis.
Although I will be graduated in
June, I hope that the Club may
again be so honored sometime in
the future.

To the Editor:
THE FOLLOWING is a copy of
the letter the Glee Club sent
to Ed Sullivan.
. X I can understand how you
may have, under the circum-
stances, misinterpreted our ad
which appeared in the May 13 edi-
tion of the Michigan Daily. How-
ever, I assure you that there were
no ulterior implications whatso-
ever in designing the ad. We in the
Glee Club considered it an honor
and a privilege to appear on your
show. The ad was meant only to
point out the fact that we had
sung on your TV broadcast and
that our entire program could be
heard by attending our annual'

have been used had we appeared
on your show for 15 or 20 minutes.
Some of our Alumni and friends,
who are not acquainted with the
problems of TV production, may
have expressed to you their disap-
pointment concerning the length
of our appearance. The members
of the Club understood the situa-
tion and were thrilled with the
opportunity to be on "Toast of the
Town." We realize that flexibility
is inherent in the production of
such a show.-
In speaking for Dr. Duey and
the Club, I sincerely hope that the
people who did not understand
the entire situation will not stand
in the way of our maintaining cor-

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

WITH the exception of a few student reci-
tals, Sunday's concert by the University
Symphony struck the final note of this
year's entire season. Conductor Wayne Dun-
lap, assisted by the string orchestras of Ann
Arbor, Cass Technical, Hillsdale, and Lin-
coln High Schools, chose to embellish this
last musical event with youthful perform-
ers, with players whose age median would
fall in the 'teens. Perhaps this previewed our
musicians of the future, but most certain-
ly it demonstrated the fin4 work that is be-
ing done in music education throughout the
state.
Though the artistry of the youngsters
was forgiveably not of professional cali-
bre, the usual flaws in pitch, tone, and
technique, their enthusiasm was. Elizabeth
Green, Harry Begian, Robert Lint, and
Mildred Macheller, respectively the con-
ductors of the high school groups, should
be congratulated along with Mr. Dunlap,
as they have done a fine job in organizing
and guiding them.
For a country that has always been weak
in strings, but alas burdened abundantly
with saxophone and trumpet players, it was
an optimistic sign of vital import to see so
many young string players on one stage.
Strings are still the most versatile and lovely
of man-made musical instruments. For cen-
turies composers have not demanded so much
from them arbitrarily, nor has mere caprice

rHE GROWTH of the Soviet economy has
not, until recently, played a great part
in European political thinking. But within a

fostered their extensive literature. Today,
in the face of a shortage of string players,
Michigan can take pride. It is not nearly so
important that there be one Hejfetz as it is
there be many high school string orchestras,
for here the roots of this musically necessary
tradition can be firmly established.
The program itself on Sunday was too
long. There were two factors 'causing this.
In the first place a Chausson Symphony, the
B-flat major, was played. Here is a work
melodramatically elongating each of its
thirty-five minutes. As Miss Sherbrooke's
valuable program notes stated, it owes its
style, structure, and character to Cesar
Franck and Wagner. For Mr. Dunlap, how-
ever, it was very satisfying. His ensemble re-
acted precisely and musically to his orders,
with the string section doing better than it
had previously this year.
The other cause of the concert's undue
length was Mozart's extremely generous
use of repeats and Mr. Dunlaps failure to
cut any of them. The Serenade, K. 286,
featured two string orchestras on stage
which were echoed and humourously mim-
icked by two more such orchestras in the
second balcony. The effect produced was
similar to the one in "Don Giovanni" where
there is an orchestra both in the pit and on
the stage, but even more so since the mu-
sic came from all sides. But with so many
repeats it became a bit monotonous; tell-
ing the same story or joke more than once
tends to spoil it.
The remainder of the program included
Vaughan-Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by
Thomas Tallis, with the Stanley Quartet as
soloists, Tchaikovsky's Elegie from "Serenade
for Strings," and "Soirees Musicales" by Ben-
jamin Britten. With so many strings both the
Elegie and Fantasia were flattered melodi-
cally as their rich, grave, and long lines had
more depth and tone. Likewise, the many
strings complimented the intensely rhap-
sodic harmonies and mood of the Fantasia.
The Britten was light and spirited, and gave
the concert a'brisk ending.
The orchestra this year has played a diffi-
cult and full repertory. Their technical mis-
takes are easily forgotten in light of the
musical interest they have engendered. A
college orchestra is not easy to put together.
Nevertheless the training it gives to the par-
ticipants and the opportunity it provides of

THE HOUSE of Representatives
of the U. S. Congress on March
10, 1953 passed by a vote of 274
to 138 a bill granting statehood
to Hawaii. The bill was immediate-
ly sent to the Senate where it was
referred to the Senate Interior and
Insular Affairs Committee,
From March 10 until today
nothing has been done by the
committee to report the bill out
for a vote on the Senate floor.
There is great danger that Ha-
waii will again be denied statehood
via the method of bottling up the
statehood bill in the Senate In-
terior and Insular Affairs Com-
mittee.
This and other delays in grant-
ing statehood in the past have led
some to conclude that Congress is
insincere about giving statehood
to Hawaii.
Already Soviet Russia, Chinese
and North Korean propaganda
agencies are charging that the
people of Hawaii are being held
in a colonial status by the "im-
perialists" of Washington.
We of Hawaii believe that Con-
gress can best answer this charge
by granting, statehood to Hawaii
NOW.
Members of the University fac-
ulty and student body can help
get the statehood bill out of com-
mittee and also to overcome the
Communist charge by writing their
individual Senators in Congress
asking them to help get the Hawaii
statehood bill out of the Senate
Interior and Insular Affairs Com-
mittee and on to the Senate floor
for a vote.
Speed is urgent. Send your let-
ters' by airmail as the time for
Congress to adjourn looms larger
on the horizon.

4 Tennessee Williams *. .
To the Editor:
THERE is no doubt about the
fact that Tennessee Williams
is one of the best playwrights now
writing fdr the American stage.
Recently he experimented with
purely emotional and completely
lyric theater. To a great many, he
succeeded nobly.' There are many
who consider "Camino Real' the
best play of the last decade.
Assuming that it is true that Mr.
Williams was much taken with the
Drama Season's 'second show "In
the Summerhouse," it is still in-
conceivable that he really thought
it "perfect" and needing "abso-
lutely no revision."
Everyone with whom I've talked
agrees that "Summerhouse" is a
very interesting show but certainly
needing much work before even
attempting Broadway. Even a man
who is connected with the show,
with whom I talked said that a
grea deal of revision would be
necessary.
One wonders in what capacity
Mr. Williams is connected with "In
the Summerhouse."
