Over
Matter

Mrs. Housewife, U.S.A.

FOR SOME TIME the charge of "anti-
intellectualism" has been hurled at the
education school, and professional educators
have retorted that the how of teaching is
as important as the teaching of subject
matter. University educators are proceed-
ing on the basis of this philosophy in their
instruction of future teachers. The import-
ance of a pleasant atmosphere in the class-
room, self-selection methods of learning
and similar "progressive" ideas of educa-
tion are stressed; gradually the teacher's
need for knowledge of subject matter is
taking a back seat.
A subcommittee of the State Board of
Education has been working for the past
year on revision of the present state cer-
tification code for teachers. What the
group has accomplished can be summed
up in one statement: more hours of edu-
cation courses should be required of pros-
pective teachers at the expense of sub-
ject matter.
A proposal for extra hours in general
education courses has been made by the
subcommittee. Critics of the proposal have
asked the members of the subcommittee if
humanities should be added in the general
education field. The answer given by the
subcommittee, which has studied the ques-
tion "in some detail": "We fail to see how
we can approach this particular problem
and still set up the sort of framework which
is required to obtain the necessary ends of
the State Board of Education."
The subcommittee clearly goes out of
bounds of professional educators when,
under the heading of "Inter-Disciplinary
Requirements" it recommends an addi-
tional 15 hours in general education in
courses or organized experiences designed
to show the relationship of the commun-
ity and the role of education in American
society. The explanation the subcommit-
tee gives on this point is that teachers
should be prepared to be community lead-
ers. A further examination of the point
will shpw that the educators, because they
are so concerned with the part teachers
will play outside of the classroom as Girl
Scout leaders, Sunday School teachers or
Rotarlans, are neglecting to train the fu-
ture instructors in fields which they will
teach in the classroom.
The epitome of the muddled reasoning of
the subcommittee comes in a statement "the
prospective teacher who demonstrates that
his interest is primarily in the acquisition
of knowledge in a particular subject matter
field, cannot be calculated to have an equal-
ly fundamental interest in the welfare of
children." The basis of this statement, ac-
cording to the subcommittee, is that in pro-
fessions such as law, medicine and engi-
neering, requirements in both professional
and general education areas have been dic-
tated by those in the professions. They go
on to say that in the field of education, pro-
fessional people should also be allowed to
dictate requirements for future teachers in
the number and kind of education courses.
This rationalization is difficult to fol-
low. By alluding to other professions of
specialization, the educators are making
a false analogy. And at the same time
they are avoiding an explanation of the
point that the general welfare of children
will be neglected if future teachers, wen
in college, concentrate on the acquisition
of knowledge.
Intellectual development is a part of the
child growth and development educators are
so concerned with. Yet these professional
educators continue their campaign of anti-
intellectualism and discourage acquisition
of knowledge by future teachers. A curious
paradox, to say the least, and if allowed to
become the dictating philosophy of education
schools, this theory may result in a gener-
ation of sweet, smiling dimwits.

Women's Senate

REPRESENTATION OF 17,000 students
might not be as impossible as it seems.
By abandoning last year's ineffectual
Board of Representatives and rechristen-
ing its successor the Women's Senate,
the League has come up with a worthy
contribution to campus unity.
True, a real representation of all women
on campus could not be achieved-too many
are beyond the spread of the League's ma-
ternal wing. But the majority, who do live
in dormitories, league houses and sororities,
can now voice their decisions and opinions,
as well as problems, at the Senate.
Unlike its forebear, the Senate can claim
weekly gatherings each of which attract a
good percentage of its membership. What's
niore important, however, is that the group
is doing something.
It would be quite simple and even per-
misible for as young an organization as this
to hesitate and flounder at this stage of
its existence. But Senate meetings aren't
groping, worthless coffee hours. Parlia-
mentary procedure is followed rigidly, busi-
ness conducted intelligently.
Now testing potentialities of the Wo-
men's Senate is a questionnaire directed
to all women on campus. The survey in-

TRUTH IS SO easily stranger than fiction
because fiction, in order to be accepted,
must be plausible. But truth is not held
down by any such rigid limits.
Even so, a fictional situation can often
be devised to form a reasonable facsimile
of the truth it portrays. Take, for in-
stance, the story of the housewife who
prided herself on the immaculate appear-
ance of her home. Her pride, of course,
was meaningless unless it was reinforced
by guests who could assure her of the
meticulous neatness she loved.
She spent every part of every day tend-
ing to her household chores so religiously
and improving on arrangements that had
been perfect the day before. The commun-
ity being one in which the appearance of
your home was a major measure of your
worth, she rapidly gained a commanding
social position.
After a while, the housewife began to feel
quite secure in her position, and her dis-
regard for the reassurances of guests in-
vited became smaller and smaller, which
tended to remove the support from her
community standing. But she compensated
by telling everyone what a delightfully tidy
and attractive home she kept. Soon, she
relied mostly on her boasts, and inviting
guests was, to her, an avoidable nuisance.
The community became puzzled because
it could no longer directly reaffirm its es-
teem for the housewife, but found its only
evidence in her claims. Although, at first,
her former reputation prevented the com-
munity from discrediting her, those who
had previously admired her became increas-
ingly skeptical of the truth of her claims.

So, the housewife's boasts became louder
and more violent, and the skepticism grew
accordingly. Although it would have been
a simple matter to prove her claims, if
they were true, which only she really knew,
she did not. Ever so slowly, painfully so,
her reputation fell, until her claims were
taken as so much prattle.
Strange, you might say, for it would have
been but an easy task to again invite guests
and reestablish her position. However, the
property of being strange, like many other
things, is a matter of degree. And the de-
gree is much greater when this fictional
situation is transferred to an actuality.
For it is exactly the same kind of thing
that is going on today in America's po-
sition among the nations of the world.
She spends millions of dollars and a
countless number of man-hours annually
on psychological warfare-on radio broad-
casts to peoples of cold war enemies, on
pamphlets, on all sorts of propaganda,
on anything that carries the message of
what a great place America is to live in,
indicating that everyone should wish to
live here.
At the same time, she flaunts immigra-
tion laws in the faces of those who wish to
come to her, even those who have succumb-
ed to the relentless propaganda. These im-
migration laws, embodying a grotesque sys-
tem of quotas, prevent people who want ar-
dently to come to America from doing so.
And there is no doubt that America's re-
putation has suffered much in foreign cir-
cles despite her impressive psychological
warfare machine.
Is it not strange?

Molotov's Plan ...
To The Editor:
AFTER READING the editorial
entitled "Mr. Molotov and the
Fifty-Year Plan" we cannot help
calling attention to certain mis-
conceptions, at least as far as our
observations and experiences have
shown. We must agree that the
failure of the Berlin conference
will discourage many European
hopes. However, we cannot agree
that this failure has been profit-
able to Moscow, nor that the plan
Molotov proposed was acceptable
to Europeans. The author speaks
of the "many" Europeans who are
not convinced of Russia's goal of
world domination. Where does
the author find all these people?
Possibly among the Communist
Party members in France and
Italy, but hardly among the peo-
ples of England, France, West and
East Germany. '
Next, the author lists four rea-
sons why the Russian plan should
be acceptable to Europe, neglect-
ing some very pertinent facts.
First, although the French are
the first to fear Germany, they
have recognized for two or three
years that united defense effort
is necessary. The EDC is accept-
ed by all European participants in
theory. The only disagreement is
in terms of influence and appor-
tionment. Second, the lessening
of defense needs would surely help
European economy. However, the
people are well aware that a
strong defense is needed to stop
Soviet expansion. Thirdly, the
term "Ami, go home" originated
in Eastern Germany, a fact the
author ignored. It is certainly not
pleasant to have foreign troops on
your soil, but Americans are stil
much preferred to Russians and
Europeans realize that the with-
drawal of American troops would

referring to peddlers of, despai
and assuring us that the economy
was healthy. I doubt that this psy-
chological approach is a very fruit-
ful way of dealing with the objec-
tive realities of the economy.
Promises that "effective action"
will be taken in case the situation
gets serious are at best very vague.
One way of dealing with an eco-
nomic crisis is to keep peoples
minds off their problems by blow-
ing up a "Red Menace." This is es-
sentially the path taken by Ger-
many, Italy and Japan which led
to the destruction of the civil lib-
erties and living standards of the
peoples of those nations. Eisen-
hower by appeasing McCarthyism
by introducing a bill to take waay
the citizenship of convicted Com-
munists appears to incline toward
this type of solution.
We can go a long way to solving
our international and economic
problems by reorientating our
economy to a peace time level, by
utilizing the huge markets that
China, Soviet Russia and Eastern
European countries offer us, by ap-
plying governmental spending for
peacetime construction. The poli-
tical prerequisites are two: 1. Mc-
Carthyism must be fought openly
and not appeased 2. A realization
* of the fact that the U. S. and the
Soviet Union regardless of differ-
ences must stay at peace for their
own good.

Art Books or Cheaper Books?

IT'S A GRIM picture painted for the fu-
ture of a student bookstore.
The investigation of one local merchant
as presented to the Campus Action Com-
mittee of the Student Legislature tends
to rule out the economical possibilities of
any shape or form of a student bookstore,
whether on a cooperative or University-
operated basis.
Says the bookseller, a co-op store would
bring only three percent savings toparti-
cipating students. The other alternative--
a University-operated bookstore-would net
"only" a 15 per cent reduction in prices to
students. And one of the woeful conse-
quences of this latter scheme would be the
elimination of "art books" and much new
writing from the shelves of the commercial
bookstores.
The local merchant also maintains that
the University would be paying "approxi-
mately 10 per cent" of the savings in a col-
lege operated system.
Thus we are faced with a blank wall--
a cooperative bookstore wouldn't save
enough to make it worthwhile; a Uni.
versity-subsidized operation would save
a mere 15 per cent each semester, to the
loss of the wonderful variety of art books
now available at our local book shops.
Any other alternatives?

First, thank Mr. Marshall for his kind
advice and precious time.
Second, contact every possible student-
operated bookstore in the country to find
their methods of operation and "secrets of
success."
Third, formulate a concrete plan of oper-
ation and present it for University approval.
Perhaps this is too simple. For many se-
mesters committees have poked and probed
squeamishly into the prospects of initiating
student bookstores, and still University stu-
dents must meet the marked-up prices for
used and new texts charged by local book
sellers.
Yet, other universities and colleges have
operated stores for years. It is regret-
table, as Mr. Marshall pointed out, that
commercial bookstores have not been able
to survive near these, as at Wayne Uni-
versity in Detroit. But is commendable
that they do save students appreciable
amounts in the purchase of books and
supplies.
It will be interesting to watch the action
taken by SL's various committees and sub-
committees, since they now have the facts
straight from one who has been in the thick
of Ann Arbor book bartering.
Still, it would be tough to lose those art
books.

WASHINGTON-I talked at length the
other day with Robert R. Young, the
bouncing little tycoon from Texas who has
taken on the second biggest railroad in the
U.S.A. and the biggest big-business battle
the nations has seen in this century. Among
other things, I asked him what he would
do if he should lose his stockholders' fight
to acquire the New York Central on May 26.
"There will be other May 26ths," Young
replied, "and I am only 57 years old. I
have eight years left before I reach the
New York Central's retirement age of 65.
I'm going to keep on fighting."
I had not realized before that Young was
only 57. I discovered, as we talked, that he
had made a fortune before he got to be
35, retired from business and then went
back into business again.
"Retirement was too humdrum," he ex-
plained. "I got tired doing nothing."
Born on a Texas cattle ranch which his
father managed, he had gone to work dur-
ing World War I for the Du Ponts, became
assistant to John J. Raskob, learned the
game of finance from the inside, and became
one of the early sparkplugs inside General
Motors.
"Why did you go into the railroad busi-
ness after you decided to go back to work
again?" I asked.
"Because it was the most run-down busi-
ness in the country," he explained. "You
have the greatest opportunity in any busi-
ness that is backward, and the railroad busi-I
ness has been held back for years. If the
automobile business had had the same lack
of imagination as the railroad business, it
wouldn't be anywhere today either."
TRAIN X
W HEN I ASKED Mr. Young what he in-
tended to do for the New York Central
that hadn't been- done before, he replied
that one of the chief improvements he would

"I built it for use on the Chesapeake and
Ohio," he explained, "hoping it would set
an example to other roads and that they
would follow suit. However, since the C.
and O. has to link up with other lines we
haven't been able to use it yet, because we
can't hook up to their junk.
"One trouble with the railroad business,"
Young continued, "is refusal to change.
The present-day freight car, for instance,
got its height from the old plantation
wagon drawn by a teamt of mules that
used to load cotton bales into freight cars.
Freight cars were built a convenient height
for those old plantation wagons and have
been kept at that height ever since.
Among various plans Young has for the
New York Central is to put a woman on its
board of directors, put motion pictures on
overnight passenger trains, modernize equip-
ment, and let railroad personnel buy stock
in the road so they become its owners as
well as its operators.
"NEW LOOK" FOR BUSINESS
AN AMERICAN businessman just return-
ed from Europe has taken a unique
step to improve U.S. relations abroad. Leo-
pold D. Silberstein, chairman of Pennsyl-
vania Coal and Coke, was upset by hearing
Europeans forecast that U.S. economy was
on the eve of a 1929 nosedive. So he broad-
cast a special report to businessmen in Eur-
ope over the Voice of America, and is now
urging other American businessmen to do
likewise.
Silberstein discovered that the United
States wil spend $3,000,000.000 this year on
peacetime use of atomic energy alone, told
European business that the U.S.A. is moving
forward in industrial research with tre-
mendous speed, that peacetime use of the
atom alone will create vast new markets,

If statements are misconstrued or
even in some cases fabricated,
your paper will suffer in the long
run by the future hesitancy of
students to give their opinions on
important issues. If The Daily is
to be respected as a public opin-
ion media or source from which
information and discussion reach
the student body, there should be
a definite attempt to enlighten
the students on all facts, relevant
facts, and all sides of public-in-
terest issues, whether or not you
agree with them. Save your opin-
ions for the editorial page, and
even there use fair arguments to
back them up.
-Virginia Abbey
To the Editor:
4N MY opinion Joint Judic has
taken a proper stand. The
place of The Daily should be that
of reporting facts affecting the
campus, not publicizing local
scandals.
