THE MICHIGAN DAILY
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1953
In the East
MAYORALTY elections for the most part
involve internal political machines, con-
flicts of personalities and city politics. Party
voting here is often interesting, but more
often as not insignificant on the national
The outcome of most of the elections in
the East must be placed it, this category
but with three exceptions, the New York
majoralty contest, the Viginia guberna-
torial race and the New Jersey elections.
In New York, Robert Wagner Jr. walked
away with the election. Backed by the
strange combination of the Tammany Hall
faction and the liberal Democratic element
of the party, Wagner had relatively little
trouble. The Republican candidate was a
weak one and an unheard of one until the
elections. Mr. Halley of crime sleuthing fame
cut into the Democratic vote but not enough
The most significant point of this elec-
tion was the fact that Wagner made a very
strong showing in the traditionally Republi-
can borough of Queens. Another facet of the
New York election was the re-emergence of
the liberal wing of the Democratic party
in the city. At the end of the summer the
liberals of the party were staking their en-
tire political future on the outcome of the
We may expect to see New York coming
through with the strongest support of the
man who the Democrats consider to be
the most liberal candidate for president
at the 1956 convention, since much of the
upstate voting went the same way.
Virginia marks another important trend.
Although the Democrats won, in this case
the candidates did not represent the most
liberal elements. It was the conservative Sen.
Byrd who engineered the election of his man
into the post of governor.
The New Jersey elections are perhaps the
most significant of them all. This was the
vote which attracted national politicking.
Both parties took a healthy interest in the
outcome and the personality of the president
entered into the picture for the first time.
However, the Republican candidates were
defeated for the gubernatorial posts and for
a seat in the House.
Eisenhower said following the elections
that it was just a skirmish which had been
lost. Spokesmen for the Democrats said
the vote held national significance and
was a portent of the future.
* It would be interesting to point out how-
ever, that in previous off-year elections the
party out of power has usually gained
ground. Whether this is the case in the pres-
ent instance will have to wait for the out-
come of the congressional elections next fall.
What should be recognized, however, is
that Eisenhower did not take a really active
part in any of the campaigns.
Perhaps, without the magnetism of the
General the Republican party is lost. If
this is the case, and Eisenhower does not
run in '56 the Republican party will find
itself in hot water.
For the Democrats to prematurely herald
this as a new era of their rule is foolish. The
only way they can come back into power is
to give the American public a comprehensive
policy of opposition to the present govern-
ment, something which they have hereto-
Washington M erryi o- Round
with DREW PEARSON
WASHINGTON - Some of the President's
most potent advisers pulled wires at the
White House last week over two different
policies but ended up with completely oppo-
On the economic front, GOP Sen. Ed
Thye of Minnesota phoned the White
House demanding that Ike get a new chief
of his small business administration. Thye
got his way. William D. Mitchell, head of
small business, was pre-emtorily fired.
On the farm front, GOP Sen. Frank Carl-
son of Kansas, one of Ike's closest friends
and political advisers, called to ask that the
reorganization of the soil conservation serv-
ice be delayed. Carlson did not get his way.
Early Monday morning Secretary of Agricul-
ture Benson called a special press confer-
ence to announce that the reorganization of
soil conservation would go ahead forthwith.
In other words, Senator Thye of Min-
nesota, not especially close to Ike, won out
on his plea regarding small business; while
Carlson of Kansas, who is close to Ike,
failed. Furthermore, other potent GOP
politicians backed up Carlson-Congress-
men Cliff Hope of Kansas, George Ben-
der of Ohio, and Senator Young of North
Dakota, all Republicans.
However, Ike fired one man, Mitchell;
and supported the other man, Ezra Benson,
to the hilt. Some people want to know why.
The answer is fairly simple-namely, the
President's brother, Milton Eisenhower.
Milt is strongly backing Benson. Further-
more Milt wants the land-grant colleges to
take over a large part of the soil conserva-
tion service, which Senator Carlson, et al,
don't want taken over.
Milt is President of a land-grant college,
Penn State. He was formerly president of
another land-grant college, Kansas State
College at Manhattan. Ever since he was an
assistant in the department of agriculture
under the Democrats, Milt Eisenhower has
believed that soil conservation and various
other services should be taken out of Wash-
ington and put in the hands of the land-
Furthermore, there is about $1,000,000
in the budget to be distributed among the
land-grant colleges and their extension
services to handle certain phases of soil
conservation under the new setup.
So, as between his brother and Republi-
can politicians, even close politicians, Ike
stood with his brother. That was why Sec-
retary Benson took the unusual step of call-
ing a 9:30 a.m. press conference to announce
flatly that soil conservation was going to be
reorganized, congressional pressure notwith-

-TOURING GREEK MONARCHS-
SELDOM have reigning monarchs of Eu-
rope gone to such pains to visit almost
every corner of the U.S.A. as King Paul and
Queen Frederika of Greece. From inspecting
farms around Aurora, Ill., to visiting friends
of the blind in Boston, and congratulating
city commissioner George Christopher of
San Francisco, the king and queen will pain-

their trip had run into a snag. Arriving in
New York, their majesties were informed
that President Eisenhower was not going
to meet them at the airport in Washing-
ton. This was contrary to established dip-
lomatic protocol, and for a brief moment,
Queen Frederika indicated she might not
go on to .Washington. She would go to
Boston, Toledo, Detroit and all the other
cities but not Washington.
Reason for the royal sensitiveness is that
the head of a state always goes to meet an-
other head of a state. When a king, queen
or President has taken the long trip across
the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, it's con-
sidered courteous for the President to go to
the railroad station or airport to meet them.
And since the king and queen of Greece
came to the U.S.A. on the official invitation
of the U.S. government, Queen Frederika
was unhappy, felt that Greece was being
Naturally, the Royal Party knew that
President Truman came to the airport to
meet all sorts of dignitaries from the Pres-
ident of France to the President of Bra-
zil and the Queen of Holland. He even
bounced down to the airport when Dean
Acheson came back from missions to Eu-
A State Department official, asked why
President Eisenhower didn't meet the Greek
King and Queen, said he thought it was be-
cause he didn't want to meet various Latin-
American presidents due to arrive later. An-
other State Department official explained:
"The President just doesn't like airports."
Newsmen who called the Burning Tree
Country Club to see if Ike was golfing
that day-it being Wednesday and his
customary day for golf-were given the
pat answer: "The President is meeting the
King and Queen of Greece."
However, he did not meet them-until
their majesties drove up to the White House
and walked up the steps. Persuasive ambas-
sador politis meanwhile had deftly induced
the Queen to proceed with the planned itin-

mendous hit in the nation's capital. Every-
one liked them and they seemed glad they
Note-On their trip across the U.S.A., the

PRESENTATION of the genuine hand
carved Paul Bunyan trophy at the MSC
-game next Saturday may be half over be-
fore H. O. "Fritz" Crisler and his athletic
board get around to decide for the Univer-
sity whether or not they like the idea. At-
tempts so far to penetrate the cloak of se-
crecy thrown around the issue by the board
have met with politely condescending guf-
faws from members.
The well informed board has already got
its signals badly switched in alternate de-
nials and confirmations from varipus
members of the existance of a report to
the governor on Tuesday's meeting with
the MSC board. This top secret document
apparently contains a list of classified
recommendations for the Governor's con-
sideration in deciding whether to go ahead
with the trophy. One security leak from
Lansing hinted at one of the recommen-
dations when he indicated that Crisler was
known to favor a Wolverine theme for the
award instead of the Paul Bunyan one
now being considered.
Meanwhile in Lansing Gov. G. Mennen
Williams is apparently pushing doggedly
ahead with this, his latest political gambit.
An outsided Paul Bunyan doll is already be-
ing carved from Michigan pine in Chicago
and the governor seems determined not to
miss the opportunity to doff his hat to the
crowd in the MSC stadium next Saturday
Inspired' theme of the spontaneous
award created to symbolize the spirited
rivalry of the two Michigan teams is that
heroic figure of American and Canadian
folklore Paul Bunyan, a man whose mus-
cled exploits have deep meaning to stu-
dents on both campuses. The Bunyan leg-
end is in fact so well known to students
here that many of them had to be told
he did not write "Pilgrim's Progress" and
that the trophy was not being named aft-
er him for that reason.
Considering the complete lack of student
enthusiasm on campus for the whole trophy
idea it seems rather pointless to artificially
create an incentive for a game already
marked by strong feeling on both sides. For
lack of anything better to do with i why
doesn't the Governor give the trophy to his
kids for Christmas.

NO TIME FOR FLOWERS, with Viveca
Lindfors and Paul Christian.
IT HAS BEGUN. The attitude found in
so many comic strips has finally worked
its way into the movies. Yes, we all laugh
when short, dumpy types with bushy mus-
taches walk around the funny papers with
"Hero" medals across their chests. But when
the theme is taken up by Hollywood the
result becomes more ambivalent. The ques-
tion now becomes: do we dare laugh at this
stuff? No matter how earnestly we try to
believe that this is all just plain, honest fun,
there is always the feeling that this sort of
thing is becoming the popular idea of life
behind the Iron Curtain.
In "No Time for Flowers" we peek behind
said curtain into Soviet Prague (filmed,
somehow, in occupied Austria) to see the
machinations of the secret police, the child-
informers, the spies, counter-spies, counter-
counter-spies, and organized pro-capitalists,
to see just how love overcomes all obstacles.
Viveca Lindfors is a very, very loyal Czech
girl who proves her allegiance to the ideals
of the revolution by eliminating sex from
her life. She seems to be just the type to
send to America as the ambassador's secre-
tary; but, to be doubly sure, the State ex-
poses her to the test. She is put to work
for a man who has recently returned from
the States with ideas about nylons, coffee,
champagne, and women-that is, she is sup-
posed to think he's gone over to the other
Her first reaction is to report him-
exactly according to plan. The foxy se-
cret-police chief instructs her to spy on
the man and report to him daily, so that
he can see whether she will maintain her
loyalty throughout all manner of capital-
istic temptations. Up to this point the
affiliations of the main players are rela-
tively clear; but then there is a sudden
switch, whites become reds, pinks become
whites, executions, arrests, and what have
you, until it seems that these people
change their allegiance oftener than their
The result, of course, is in favor of the
Wall Street warmongers, and we are all
happy. Almost. Because this is all just a
little too easy. Either these Czechs are
being persecuted or they are not. If they
are,aI don't particularly want to laugh about
it; and if they are not, then the whole film
becomes propaganda of the most effective
type. It's the creeping type, for we all know
we don't believe it-and we are amused, we
enjoy it, and lo! it's got us.

British Guiana ...
To the Editor:
H AVING read A. Walker's letter,
I feel that it is necessary to
make several comments. First of
all, I would agree in part with his
statement, " . . . the political make
up of the newly elected Jagan
Govt. in British Guiani is of little
concern," but I would add-to the
British and American interests in
the area. The lack of concern on
this particular point is under-
standable. It doesn't matter who
they are but what they are doing.
Any colonial govt. espousing
radical reform is a threat to Brit-
ish economic and military inter-
ests. And it is therefore under-
standable that the British popula-
tion in British Guiana should be-
come frightened when a national-
ist movement proposes to amend
a constitution reluctantly drawn
up in London. The PPP Govt. real-
ized that it was impossible to real-
ize the necessary reforms desired
by the majority of the electorate
without passing several import-
ant pieces of legislation and de-
manding at least one immediate
change in the constitution. The
PPP Govt. stated that labor should
have the right to organize and
bargain collectively. But the right
to organize was considered a
threat to British sugar interests
who have up to now refused to
recognize the bargaining power of
the unions, despite numerous
strikes carried out by the union
The British reasoned quite cor-
rectly that a labor movement in
the colony might develop into a
movement whose ends would not
coincide with those of the British.
The writers of the constitution
"given" to the colony seemed to
have forseen this possibility,
among others, and delegated to
the British governor in George-
town veto power of all legislation
passed by the duly elected. Under
these circumstances, I agree with
Walker when he states, "A Labor
Minister who retains his trade
union post, an Educ. Min. who at..
tacks colonial administration and
a Prime Minister's wife who'cam-
paigns for radical revision of the
new constitution show how little
the Jagan Govt. was ready to im-
plement the Constitution."
Walker mentioned that the PPP
Govt. plans to run the Govt. along
authoritarian lines. As a defender
of a British administration which
has dictated policy along authori-
tarian lines for quite some time,
Walker offers nothing to substan-
tiate his charge.
I am not surprised to hear that
Her Majesty's Army, Navy and
Governor still insist upon guiding
another dissident sibling along a
righteous path. It is now only nec-
essary to convince the people in
British Guiana of the necessity
of Her Majesty's role.
At this particular time it would
seem hardly necessary to point out
to Walker that British colonialism
is an anachronism. The question
is: what political ideology will fill

SL's Stand ...
To the Editor:
WEDNESDAY NIGHT SL voted
down all pending questions on
the Milo Radulovich case. Because
I was in the chair throughout the
debate, I was unable to express my
opinions at that time and should
like to do so briefly.
First, let me say that I believe
Bob Neary's motion was the most
lucid and straight-forward state-
ment of basic policy that the Leg-
islature has seen since the Second
Bias Clause Bill. It said what we
dislike, what we believe, and
what we want done. It did
not cloud its meaning or intent in
extra wordage. It was, in short, the
clear and concise type of motion
that SL should pass IF they be-
lieve in the philosophy embodied
therein. But SL did not pass the

they have taken a backward tum-
ble of 3 or 4 years. However, what
is far worse, I am certain S, act-
ed contrary to student opinion in
taking no stand on the affair Ra-
dulovich. If so, SL's only true
,raison d'etre, that it represents
student views, is no longer valid.
Unhappily, then, even those of us
who work and feel most strongly
for student government, are forced
to ask "Why have an SL?"
I earnestly hope SL will recon-
sider this issue at the beginning
of its next session, and will pro-
duce some result more consonant
with their often-stated democrat-

THE FRENCH Parliament began debate yesterday on measures de-
signed to prepare the Saar for Europeanization after an expected
settlement with Germany over territorial claims.
If things go as expected, this major prerequisite to establish-
ment of thesEuropean Defense Community will be arranged with-
in the next several weeks.
The first step, the one now before Parliament, is ratification of
conventions drawn up last spring relaxing many of the controls im-
posed on the Saar by France when she took over after the war. The
object is to give the Sarrlanders political autonomy within a business
partnership with France.
Under the new arrangement, the Saar will have internal auton-
