To Those Who

'Strategic Change' &'Transition'

Must Decide .

. .

FOR SORORITY WOMEN, the approach-
ing vacation will be an idle one-and a
significant one.
The entire campus looks forward to a
few days of relaxation when finals are
over,. but affiliates see the break with
mixed emotions. If, two years ago, Pan-
hellenic Association hadn't installed its
trial period of fall rushing, right now
they'd be faced with rushing's inevitable
and unacclaimed byproducts: practicing,
planning and paper work.
If pledge classes hadn't been filled under
last September's fall rush system, sororities
and their pledges would be planning to stay
in Ann Arbor between semesters-prepared
to undergo the gala whirl of parties and
smiling and conversational faux pas.
The vote, deciding once and for all when
rushing is to be conducted (authorities have
refused to change the system again) will be
put before the sororities in the near future.
In the hands of this year's affiliates, there-
lore, lies the fate of all campus sororities
for as long as they care to exist.
There are obvious pros and cons for both
fall and "spring" (as late January has been
whimsically termed), for rushing seasons.
The familiar phrase "two-point average,"
for instance, figures prominently under eith-
er system.
The distinction, however, seems to favor
the fall season. With January slated as
the rushing period, freshmen have only
rushing itself to work for as a reward
for their C averages. Viewed in this res-
pect, rushing would simply be an obstacle
to an otherwise free vacation.
Last year and this, freshman concern ov-
er grades and studies has been far more
serious. They need not only make the vital
two-point average to remain off scholastic
probation, but they must have it to be ini-
tiated in the spring. This issue has par-
ticular effect on the many "borderline cas-
es" who waver between C's and D's.
After two trial years of September rush-
ing, the appeal of the inter-semester per-
iod is greatly lessened. Only a superhuman
student would deny that some rest is help-
ful, if not essential, after final examinations.
"Spring" rushing prohibits this rest.
Weather figures prominently in any so-
Cial schedule, and as applied to sorority
rushing it gives September another obvious
advantage. At its worst, autumn can send
only a few days of Ann Arbor rain-but in
January anything can happen . Although
mittens, storm coats and stadium boots may
provide better conversational meat than yel-
low slickers, fewer rushees would be apt to
brave January slush and snow.
The University has been denounced for
A dearth of "friendly" collegiate spirit,
but a return to "spring" rushing could
deal what there is of this spirit a final
blow. Under a deferred rushing system
Panhellenic contact rules, which prohibit
anything except civil greetings between
rushees and sororities, would suffer the
violations of simple human nature.
Panhellenic's present crew of pledges, re-
cruited last fall, are justifiably wondering
whether deferred rushing might have made
it easier for them to adjust to University
and sorority life. Almost all freshmen,
though, are intelligent enough. to decide
what they want. And for those who are un-
sure, several opportunities to change their
minds are available. Nobody's forced to go
Greek and stay Greek-but simple statis-
tics show that most women who do pledge
don't regret having entered sorority life.
Finally, a decision in favor of between-
semester rushing could result, ultimately,
only in Panhellenic suicide. Rushees would
be fewer, and consequently sororities them-
selves would decrease in membership to a
point below that of economic and social
Long range results such as these may
seem incredible now, with the sorority
system well fulfilling its purpose on one
of the country's largest campuses. But
there is no school, nor any sorority, which
is immune from such possibilities.

A permanent cut-and-dried return to
"spring" for sorority rushing is one pos-
sibility-the choice must be made by every
affiliated woman. But for those who look
a few years ahead and conclude that their
sororities deserve to remain important fac-
ors in University life, a decisive vote in fall
rushing's favor is the selection which must
be made.

eserch Re-searched , .
Y ALL outward signs, American science
is in an unprecedented good state of
health. Funds, physical facilities, and per-
sonnel for research are greater than ever;
the journals that report results are fatter
and more numerous. A number of able scien-
tists, however, are made distinctly uncom-
fortable by some aspects of this boom. They
fear-and with reason, I think-that Amer-
ican science is developing in a way dan-
gerous to the imagination and ingenuity
which alone can make it fruitful .
Planned research has a disconcerting way
of suppressing everything not included in
the plan; and it could also narrow the op-
portunity for talented individuals, for really
new ideas, and for the exploitation of the

WASHINGTON-In the message there are
two passages where the President dips
down under the list of policies, recommen-
dations, and promises to give a clew to the
estimate of the situation on which he is
proceeding. The estimate is after all the
first thing that the country needs to under-
stand. For only by knowing what the Ad-
ministration believes the situation to be, can
it discuss intelligently whether this or that
measure is right, necessary, sufficient, use-
The two passages are brief, and nothing
is spelled out. But though they are much
too casual, considering how momentous
are the judgments that they contain, they
will almost certainly be remembered long-
er and be quoted oftener as time goes on
than, anything else in the message. For
in the one passage the President gives his
present view of the state of the cold war.
It is therefore the major premise on which
his foreign policy, his military planning,
and his domestic economic program are
based. In the other passage the President
describes the Administration's working
theory as they watch the symptoms of a
The first passage is in the preface to the
message. The President says that "There
has been in fact a great strategic change in
the world during the past year." The sec-
ond passage introduces his domestic pro-
gram. In it he says that "At the moment
we are in transition from a war-time to a
peace-time economy."
Putting the two together, this means that
the Administration is acting on the assump-
tion that a great strategic change in the
world justifies this country in making the
transition to a peace-time economy. This
is as great and far reaching a judgment as
a government can make in this period of
history. The imlications and the conse-
quences of acting upon it are bound to be
tremendous. A fuller discussion of it ad-
dressed to the adult citizens is owing to our
people and to the world.
For it is tantamount to saying that an
era has ended and that another is begin-
ning. If that is so, we need very much to
know in what sense it is so, to know what in
fact has ended, and what is it that is sup-
posed to be beginning.
Though it cannot be proved conclusive-
ly, the President surely has with him res-
ponsible opinion throughout the world,
which is based on public and secret in-
formation, when he speaks of a great
strategic change. But when he goes on
to define the strategic change, he is, I
am afraid, expressing his personal hopes
rather than describing the facts: "That
precious intangible, the initiative, is be-
coming ours. Our policy, not limited to
mere reaction against crises provoked by
others, is free to develop along lines of
our choice not only abroad but at home."
Reading that, one thinks of Korea, Red
China, Formosa, and Indo-China, of Iran
and of Egypt, of Israel and the Arab states,
of Italy and Yugoslavia, of France and Ger-
many. Is it at all evident that the initia-
tive is becoming ours and that our policy is
free to develop along lines of our choice?
Yet undoubtedly there has been a great
strategic change in the cold war between
the Communist . orbit and the Atlantic
Community. It is registered in the work-
ing policies of the governments rather
than in their official theses and propa-
ganda. The change is marked by an open
recognition in both great coalitions that
their conflict-of which no settlement is
in sight-cannot now be waged or decided

by overt military measures. This is anoth-
er way of saying that a recognized balance
of power exists, and that while it is main-
tained, a great war is not probable. More-
over in this phase there cai be no profit
and there is much too great risk in local
wars. The Soviet Union is not likely,
therefore, to sponsor any more of them,
and it must be interested, as is also the
Atlantic Community, in bringing about
a ceasefire in Indo-China.
If we compare this with our assumption
in 1950, when we thought of Korea as the
opening campaign of the third world war.
the strategic change is radical.
* * *
WHETHER OR NOT the new estimate is
justified, it is a fact that all the Wes-
tern democracies, are now acting upon
it. The Eisenhower administration if found-
ed upon this estimate, and its general course
has in consequence been to promote the
"transition from a war-time to a peace-time
A transition of this kind is difficult and
complicated. It would be a serious mis-
take on our part to identify it with the
recession which we have recently become
aware of. The recession as such, if it is
merely a phase in the business cycle, can
no doubt be no more than a necessary and
perhaps desirable readjustment. But that
confidence is subject to a great proviso-
that the big structural transition of the
world economy is managed successfully.
For some twelve years we have been ex-
panding but we have also been distorting
our economy for the purposes of war and
the preparation for war. Our economy, our
diplomacy, our military establishment have
become in varying degrees, but importantly,
related to the conduct of war and to pre-
paredness for war. If we are now in transi-
tion from this condition of affairs which
has lasted for half a generation, we must
have no illusions that all will be well if only
we do wisely and efficiently the things that
ought to be done when the normal busi-
ness cycle turns down.
The "transition" will almost surely com-
pel us to deal not only with the business
cycle but with the structural abnormalities
that war has creaed in the whole free world.
These structural abnormalities are most
clearly manifest at home in the farm
problems. American agriculture is mobil-
ized for war, to feed and sustain a large
part of the world. The problem now is
how to demobilize agriculture, how to
dismantle the war-time strieture of
prices and of production from which are
now comingunsaleable surpluses.
But the farm problem is not unique. It
has only been presented first and brought
more clearly and sooner to a head. Import-
ant sectors of the American economy and
important parts of the pattern of indus-
trial employment are adjusted to these
many years of war. During those years the
country has seen the largest part of the
deficit in their international accounts.
The President might well remind the
Congress, when he comes to grips with
the problem, that in the previous transi-
tion, that of the 20's, what really went
wrong was our failure to make the struc-
tural changes which the peace-time eco-
nomy of the post-war era, demanded.
I cannot help feeling that a sour and
salutary note of that kind, which indi-
cated the scale and the depth of the prob-
lems ahead of us, would in the long run
have made more convincing the President's
comprehensive and uninterrupted confi-
dence and optimism.

the adjournment of Congress; so Knowland finally talked him out'
of it.
"I give the Senator from South Carolina my assurance that I
will take this up with the President, and I will call to his personal
attention the overwhelming vote in the Senate and the record of the
debate in the Senate," promised the Senator from California.
"The Senator from California," answered Maybank, "said, I be-
lieve, that it is the Pre Ident's intention to carry out the intent of
Congress, as shown by the debate."
"The President, not once, but on numerous occasions," replied
Senator Knowland, "has pointed out that he has a deep convic-I
tion that under our constitutional system, the Congress is a co-
equal branch of the government."
Knowland added that he had already brought the matter up with
administration officials, including budget boss Joe Dodge.
"I have called their attention to the record, and I have suggested
that it would be well for the executive department to read the record{
of the Senate debate on (this) issue," the majority leader declared.'
"It is my own judgment, if they proceed in the face of that record,j
they would be proceeding at their peril."
Later Senator Knowland told Maybank privately that he took
the entire matter up with the President. He thought he had an
understanding that the Eisenhower Administration would not
channel defense contracts to economically depressed areas.
Therefore, when the White House recently announced just the
opposite policy, Knowland stuck by his word to fellow Senators.

RANGOON, Burma-A few days in a pris-
on camp are enough to make the most
unappetizing food look delicious. One must
be on guard against this same effect while
traveling in Asia. An unvarying diet of
convulsion and corruption, mepace and mis-
ery can make the smallest cheerful sign
look like the dawn of a new day.
Possibly this reporter's judgment is dis-
torted in this manner. All the same, it is
downright exciting to find an Asian gov-
ernment of good and patriotic men, prac-
tical and honest, courageous and stoutly
non-Communist, patiently leading a new
country forward in the most difficult con-
ditions imaginable. If I may say, I should
like to raise a small cheer for Burma.
In assessing the situation in this country,
to be sure, the comparative method has got
to be adopted. For the Burmese people em-
barked on their stormy voyage as an inde-
pendent nation with all the odds against
Under British rule, the Burmese had been
excluded from almost every important de-
partment of their own national life. Com-
merce, industry and banking were the pro-
vinces of the British, the Indians and the
Chinese. The army was manned by the
tribal peoples. The police and the railroads
were largely staffed by.Anglo-Burmans. For
the Burmese themselves, only rice farming
and the subordinate ranks of the colonial
civil service were left.
Thus the national struggle for inde-
npmlpa,np xna te 10 nl i., nifino nt nr~a.O-

The chief inheritors of the government
were the wise Prime Minister, U Nu, the
tough and able Socialist boss who is now
War Minister, U Ba Swe, and the brilliant
Socialist idea man, U Kyaw Nyein. They did
not inherit much.
The country was still utterly ruined by
the war. Besides the Communists, the war-
like Karen people were also in revolt. In
addition about 100,000 Burmese had ob-
tained arms and lived as guerrillas during
the war; and many thousands of them had
settled down to a postwar life of banditry,
or dacoity as this ancient Burmese trade is
called here. At first the Government of
Burma had to be carried on inside a barbed
wire entanglement in a Rangoon suburb, and
the government's authority did not extend
much beyond the barbed wire.
Today, four years later, the government's
authority loosely extends over all of Burma.
Economic life has gradually resumed. The
work of the reconstruction is slowly going
forward. The outlawed Communists have
sought to regain a legal foothold through a
front organization, the Burma Workers and
Peasants party. But this Communist effort
has got nowhere either in the labor move-
ment or in any other sector of national life.
By any standard, the Burmese govern-
ment has done well. What is almost more
interesting is the sobering and maturing
effect of prolonged and heavy responsibil-
ity on the Burmese leaders. Four years
ago, these men quite sincerely took what
may be called the Aneurin Bevan view of
the world. (Some day, in truth, there is

Security Council.
Under Eisenhower, this council has been given extremely wide
powers, can fix the size of the armed services, has taken over
many decisions hitherto made by the Commander-in-Chief him-
self. Not long ago, for instance, Eisenhower informed Secretary
of the Army Stevens, when the latter protested against cutting
down the size of the Army, that his protest would be considered
and decided by the National Security Council.
Some Eisenhower advisers originally considered the idea of ask-j
ing ex-President Truman to serve on the council as an adviser only,
in order to get the benefit of his rich background of information re-
garding previous decisions. Now Senator Magnuson has gone one step
further and proposes that both living ex-Presidents serve as advisers
on the council.
