Sorority Rushing
Fancied in Spring
H APPILY for many University men and with a
sigh of relief from many of the sorority girls,
the finishing touches were applied Sunday to the
two-week period of sorority rushing.
As rushees-soon to become pledges, flocked
out of their taxis and rushed into the arms of
waiting sorority girls one couldn't help reflect-
Ing again upon some of the deficiencies of the
present fall rushig program and the merits of
another attempt to establish spring rushing.
At present the sororities hold one two-week
rushing session, extending from the Saturday be-
fore classes start in the fall until final deserts oc-
curing the Thursday and Friday evenings of the
second week of school.
The objection to this system isn't that one
period is less desirable than the fraternity two-
period setup, but rather that spring rushing
rather than fall rushing would be more benefi-
cial to both the girls who wish to affiliate and
the sororities themselves.
The arguments for fall rushing when PanHel-
lenie decided last spring to maintain what amount-
ed to status-quo were substantially the following:
1) Spring rushing would make the non-contact
rule difficult to enforce. 2) The weather is better
in the fall than in February. 3) The smaller
houses have a better opportunity to fill their
quotas because of the larger number of rushees
that perennially rush in the fall.
The third argument is refuse from the situation
that existed a few years ago when sorority regis-
tration lists generally contained 500 to 600 names.
At that time some of the small houses did have
reason to be concerned but now with rushing totals
exceeding 1000 the worry is needless. The number
of rushees decreases in the spring because of fail-
ures to make grades and other reasons but with
women's university registration setting new records
annually there seems to be little worry about lack
of rushees no matter which semester rushing is
held.
The second endorsement of fall rushing is
apparently somewhat of an afterthought and
really can't be considered important. The oppor-
tunity for a woman to wait a semester before
rushing so that she may .better integrate herself
at the University, better acquaint herself with
the campus sororities and the sorority system
Itself is certainly more crucial than whether a
coed Is forced to wear a heavy coat around her
shoulders while she attempts to affiliate.
The non-contact rule is apparently designed to
protect the smaller houses. It is reasoned that the
competition for pledges would become cut-throat
if women were allowed to contact prospective
rushees during the fall and in the ensuing tussle
the so-called top sororities would get the 'best'
women. It is also said that some girls would drop
all sororities during rushing except for the top
ones, and if they didn't get a bid they would be
unable to affiliate. This would eliminate girls who
otherwise would join the remaining houses.
It seems that it is natural that the sororities
which have the most to offer in the way of mem-
bers will get the top rushees. This is true when-
ever a club exists. It also seems that the desire
of a woman shouldn't be simply to join a sorority
but to Join one she really likes.
In the fraternity system, a house survives only
as long as its members can make it attractive
enough to induce enough new men to affiliate each
semester. The sorority system should be able to
survive on the same principle.

ART
LEST YOU assume, because of Gargoyle's spon-
sorship, or the laconic wording of the an-
nouncement concerning it, that the showing in the
Rackham Building's West Gallery is simply a Gar-
goyle hoax, let me hasten to assure you that every-
tiing is on the up-and-up. "The L. H. Scott Col-
lection of Cultural Commodities from Present-Day
Poland, Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Hungary, Bul-

garia and China," is an extremely interesting dis-
play of contemporary work in the popular arts of
those countries.
As is typical of folk-art, flowers, birds and ani-
mals figure prominently in the decoration of com-
monly-used objects made by village craftsmen. The
jugs, pitchers, and other ceramic ware from Rum-
ania are obviously of peasant origin-crudely form-
ed and brightly decorated. The Bulgarian ware is,
on the whole, more refined, and probably made un-
der different conditions, and with better facilities.
The "Peacock" coffee set, in lustrous glazes, is ex-
ceptionally fine, and would be a credit to any col-
lection.
Several albums of paintings by a Chinese ar-
tist, working in a style several millenia old, take
top honors in the show. Not only are the paint-
ings themselves exceptionally good, but the bro-
caded silk covers are fine examples of the bind-
er's art. Another contribution of the Chinese,
at a less sophisticated level, is a delightful ser-
ies of paper-cuttings. This is also an ancient art,
but we rarely have an opportunity to see samples
of it.
Among the other cultural objects to be seen are
wood-carvings, authentic costumes, embroidery,
current periodicals, books, and reproductions of
paintings, tapestries, and work in several other
media. .The special hours for this exhibit are from
7 to 10 P.M., through October 10th, and to make
your visit even more pleasant, recordings are play-
ed of music associated in some way with the coun-
tries represented. Mr. Scott will be on hand to ans-
wer questions and to dole out Bulgarian or Rus-
sian cigarettes, so don't delay, as the supply is lim-
ited.
IF YOU haven't already done so, you have only
until the 7th of this month to see the current

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-Round
CHOCHABAMBA, Bolivia - This is the story of
two loans-one was made 26 years ago and helped
contribute to the worst war in Latin-American his-
tory, the other was made 10 years ago and is helping
contribute to the battle against communism and
toward the peaceful integration of Latin America.
The first loan will never be paid back. The second
is already being paid back.
Here is the story of Loan No. I. It was negotiated
by Dillon, Read & Co. with the Bolivian government
in 1928 for 23 million dollars, a transaction from
which the Bolivian minister of finance got a good,
healthy commission.
It is doubtful if many people in Bolivia knew any-
thing about the loan or what it was to be used for,
but 5 million dollars was immediately paid to Vickers
Ltd. of London for arms and ammunition. A part of
this sum was also used to pay Hans Kundt of Ger-
many to train the Bolivian army and to pay Ernest
Roehm, who later became famous as the organizer
of Hitler's elite SS corps.
As a result, the first SS corps was organized in
Bolivia and shortly thereafter Bolivia opened an
attack on its neighbor, Paraguay, for possession of
the jungle prairie land called the Chaco.
U.S. Tries to Stop War
Charles Evans Hughes and Secretary of State
Frank B. Kellogg, both men of prestige and dis-
tinction, threw all their weight into diplomatic ef-
forts designed to stop that war. I was a young
reporter covering the State Department at that
time, and I watched them as they worked day and
night. Later Henry L. Stimson, another distinguished
secretary of state, did the same-all failed.
Bolivia had the army thanks to the Wall Street
loan, and the Chaco war continued until 1935 when
both sides were exhausted. The loan, as previously
noted, has never been paid back. It never will be
nor will the lives of countless soldiers whos graves
dot' the Chaco.
Loan No. 2 totals 28 million dollars and had its
inception in 1942 when Sumner Welles, then under-
scretary of state, conceived the idea of building a
highway from the lowlands of Bolivia in the Ama-
zon Basin to the upland plateau, two miles aove
sea level.
The Incas had dreamt of such a road, so had the
Spanish conquistadores. They saw the importance
of making Bolivia a united nation rather than one
geographically divided. But it remained for an
American diplomat, Sumner Welles, to give it the
first push and for an American construction firm,
Macco-Panpacific, to build it.
Last week at Santa Cruz, a little town older than
New York but with 30,000 people compared with
New York's nine million, President Paz Estenssoro
inaugurated that 300-mile stretch of mountain high-
way.
Tribute to U.S. Aid
I stood in the rain watching the ceremony. Beside
me stood Richard Thompson, head of the construc-
tion company that completed the work. Near the
President was Merwin Bohan, the commercial at-
tache whom Welles sent to Bolivia to plan for the
highway.
In the crowd also stood tall, gaunt taciturn Benja-
min Cottrell of Richmond, Va., engineer of the U.S.
Public Roads Service who surveyed the route. Loath
to talk about his work, Cottrell had walked every
mile of the 311-mile route, lived in tents for five
years beside it.
Gerald Rinehart, former assistant chief engineer
of the Marylan State Roads Commission, stood in
the rain bundled in two layers of raincoats. He
had carried out Cottrell's surveys. Also Max Win-
ters of Los Angeles, the construction chief of the
Macco-Panpacific Co., U.S. Ambassador Edward S.
Sparks; members of the Bolivian cabinet and several
hundred Indians stood in the rain as the Bolivian
President paid tribute to the North Americans'
work.
Lynn Stambaugh, whom Truman took out of the
sometimes-isolationist prairies of North Dakota to
put on the export-import bank, made a speech. It
was brief, simple and appropriate. He told how the
export-import bank was trying to use American
dollars to build for peace in Latin America. He did
not mention that earlier American loan that built

for war, but Foreign Minister Guevara Arze standing
in the crowd had been a sergeant in the Chaco war
and so had President Paz. They remembered it.

a more thrilling and at the same time blood curdling
drive than the one last week from the lowlands
of Santa Cruz to the Andean pleateau of Cocha-
bamba. When we arrived at Comarapa 7,500 feet
above sea level and the halfway point, a crowd of
Indians was patiently waiting.
"Senor," said the Indian chief as he greeted Presi-
dent Paz, "we have waited for you for three hundred
years." And despite a well-armed bodyguard, they
seized the President and carried him triumphantly
up the hill on their shoulders.

MUSIC'1

AT HILL AUDITORIUM. . ..
Roberta Peters, soprano; Samu-
el Pratt, flutist; Warner Bass
pianist.
WHAT promises to be an excel-
lent concert season opened
last night with the appearance o
Roberta Peters. The program in
printed form gives an impression
of a widely varied spectrum of
styles and moods, but the aura:
impression of the concert itsel
was more of a sameness of style, of
the recurrence of certain pecular-
ities of tonal production and deliv-
ery which left not the particullar
beauty of the songs in mind but
the curious technicalities of their
performance. The whole evening
seemed to be colored by a coyness
and an oversweetness, which, al-
though quite charming in them-
selves, did little else than project
Miss Peters' personality. A cer-
tain liquifying of consonants
coupled with odd twisting of vow-
el sounds detracted, it seems, from
the beatuy of sounds by calling
attention to themselves.
The great technical difficulties
involved in realizing the opening
Bach aria were perhaps an indica-
tion at the beginning of vocal
problems that would be apparent
throughout the evening. A cer-
tain coarseness in the higher reg-
ister seemed to hamper what ought
to be a coloratura's happiest range,
while the lower tones were project-
ed with surprising ease and clar-
ity.
There is of course little real
madness in the two Mad Scenes
of Thomas and Donizetti, and
little real music for that matter,
but both were excellent vehicles
for Miss Peters' agility, and in
the Donizetti for the addition of
Mr. Pratt's excellent flute to
the ensemble. The group of Eng-
lish songs, perhaps some of the
most beautiful on the program,
were marred by several moments
ofrdistressingly bad intonation;
here again real vocal intensity
and hence true emotional inten-
sity were supplanted by the coy
manner and the saccharine
tone. But if the evening was vo-
cally disappointing it is also ob-
vious that its great popular suc-
cess and the reason for the aud-
ience's enthusiasm lie in the fact
that Miss Peters brings a most
charming personality to the con-
cert stage; her great poise and
sweet mannerisms win her the
hearts of the audience before she
sings a note, and what follows is
of not too great concern to those
who are not concerned with
technicalities. But there must be
a great many for whom the
Strauss, Debussy and Vaughan
Williams of Monday evening
were not as they hope to re-
member those songs.

AT RACKHAM AUDITORIUM
Stanley Quartet (Gilbert Ross
and Emil Raab, violins; Robert
Courte, viola; Oliver Edel, cel-
lo.).
All Beethoven concert: Quar-
tet in B-flat major, Op. 18, No. 6;
Quartet in C major, Op. 59, No.

127.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON'S concert
inaugurated the Stanley Quar-
tet's series of the complete string
quartets of Beethoven. Needless to
say, this is a magnificent opportu-
nity for students and townspeople
to hear one of the greatest achieve-
ments in the entire literature of
music. The project, as such, de-
serves nothing but praise. The con-
ception of each work was there -
and at times it was superb. The
pacing was nearly always excel-
lent. One outstanding quality
seemed to be the rhythmic organi-
.+..- «. .f +L . -., .... ,. ,_ - .A

that the Stanley Quartet is capable
of better playing than that we
heard Sunday. The frequently lear
and wiry sound of the ensemble
was often merely small and con-
stricted, and when a full and reso-
nant tone was called for, it was
f not forthcoming. And, sadder still,
the pitches were too often innacur-
ate. The Quartet has done so much
excellent work in the past that we
I have every reason to expect the
remainder of the Beethoven series
to be up to its usual standard-in
technique as well as interpretative
understanding.
The program followed the same
pattern as the others scheduled
fof the series: first one of the
..Opus 18 quartets, then one from
the composer's "middle" period,
then one of the last five quartets.
The Quartet, Op. 18, No. 6, which
began the program, was played
with tremendous rhythmic drive
which gave the fast movements
just the sort of energetic treat-
ment they demand. The difficult
ensemble problems of the second
movement were negotiated in
fine style, although it seemed
that the movement as a whole de-
serves a somewhat more gracious
playing than it received.
The magnificent "Third Rasu-
.movsky Quartet," Op. 59, No. 3
was given a performance of broad
lines and at times great intensity.
The fugal finale proceeded at what
seemed at first a reckless tempo,
but there were no accidents to
speak of along the way. The E-flat
quartet, one of the mellowest and
mostbeautiful of the entire set,
concluded the program. The per-
formance here suffered at times
from inaccurate intonation and the
lack of really beautiful tonal qual-
ity. In short, the concert was only
partially successful. But I am sure
that we may look forward to a dis-
tinguished series of performances
in the remainder of the Beethoven
cycle.

A Line
ALTHOUGH THE British Gov-
ernment is not committed by
any of America's unilateral acts
about Formosa, in practice Lon-
don and Washington stand much
closer together on this issue than
do their publics. With only minor
shades of disagreement, both gov-
ernments consider that Formosa
must be preserved from Commun-
ism. Neither at present regards
neutralization as a solution, be-
cause Peking would never accept
it. Both reject the legalistic argu-
ment that Formosa automatically
belongs to the China of the Pek-
ing regime because its return to
China was promised in the Cairo
Declaration of 1953; no final dis-
posal can in any case be arranged
except in a Chinese peace treaty
with Japan. And both governments
regard some proof of the new Chi-
na's willingness to behave in a
civilized manner as at least the
first condition of any negotiation.
Mr. Attlee's recent observations in
Australia do not represent the
views of Downing Street.
The position taken up by the'
United States during the past few
years means that, from the West's
point of, view, the initiative now

All that America's allies can do is

Davis Question..
To The Editor:
TWO CHEERS for SL and its pro-
test in the Nickerson case. But
wasn't there another man, named
Davis?
For those who wonder about us,
I'd like to say that we democrats
are to be distinguished from the
sentimental liberals. If Davis had
been working on classified re-
search, we'd have histed him out.
You see what our reason would be,
and you see that we'd have one.
That's what a democrat likes to
have before he starts singling peo-
ple out or shoving them around.
Also, we democrats don't insist
that professional competence is the
only standard for a teacher. We'd
throw out convicted criminals,
practicing sexual perverts, notor-
ious wife-beaters, etc. And also fa-
natics who persisted in crusades
against, say, capitalism, in a math
class; meat-eating, in an English
class; or the Catholic Church, in
an anthropology class. To the neg-
lect of their proper subjects, that
is to say. We'd uphold the tradi-
tional standards, professional and
extra-professional: the standards
we've always agreed on. And
please note that by all these stand-
ards Mr. Davis passed. He flunked
a political test. Funny how nobody
ever defends the application of
that kind of test if it only hap-
pened far enough in the past.
It wasn't that, you say? It was
Davis's contempt for University
authority in refusing to answer
questions? Butrthe questions he re-
fused to answer were the political
ones-"Are you, or have you ever
been a you-know-what?" When we
asked him that question we were
applying a political test. Let's face
it. And we didn't have to know the
answer. Remember that. When
Charley Wilson asks one of his
employees in the Defense Dept.
that question, it's not, theoretically,
a political test; it's a security test:
and Mr. Wilson's got to ask the
question, because he's got to know
the answer. But Mr. Davis, teach-
er of algebra to college freshmen,
was not a security case. We'd have
been right to have inquired into
his professional conduct, or his le-
gal history. But not his member-
ship in the Communist Party.
That's not a crime. And it doesn't
and this choice meets the prin-
ciple of defence without undue
provocation or risk of embroil-
ment. Moreover, for the Eisen-
hower Administration itself, faced;
with the elections in November,{
this in fact represents the most
practical compromise; while it
would now be politically impossible
for the Republicans to back down
on their pledges to Chiang, neith-
er can they risk having to send
all the boys back to the Far East.
There reains Ouemoitself-

prove anything about his profes-
sional conduct.
But Mr. Davis also declined to
confide in Mr. Clardy. What about
this "respect for.law and order"
argument? I'd say that when a man
is having a legal tussle with a gov-
ernment agency a good democrat
doesn't automatically raise some
chant about "law and order;" he
realizes there may be a bit of law
on the citizen's side (an Amend-
ment or two perhaps), and he has
some respect for that. In any case,
he realizes that the definition of
law and order is precisely what the
citizen and the government are
contending about, and he lets them
thrash it out. The courts of the land
will decide the issue in the end,
if necessary, and until they do
what's the use of hollering about
law and order when you don't
even know what they require in
the situation because it hasn't.been
decided yet by the-only machinery
we have for deciding it?
But doesn'tdthe good democrat
care about his university's reputa-
tion, and its appropriations? Yes
-about its reputation in heaven
and in history; and as to the ap-
propriations - there are some
things he won't do for money. And
doesn't he care about public opin-
ion? Yes - too much to scandal-
ize it (i.e., to confirm its errors)
by a bad example.
So democrats of SL and of the
faculty, I ask you: What became of
this man Davis, who was fired for
refusing to answer questions that
should never have been asked, be-
cause there wasn't any compelling
need to know the answers?

rection be made in a recent let-
ter published in which Henry L.
Bretton used the adjective "gar-
goyled" to describe the inaccurate
reporting by The Daily of certain
neferious activities carried out by
the Young Republicans during an
alleged debate.
The exact derivation of the ad-
jective "gargoyled" is unknown to
this office, but in case it repre-
sents the Young Republican term
for "garbled," the error of this]
substitution indicates that Mr.
Bretton and his advisors should
turn from the meta-political atmos-
phere of their meetings to the rig-
orous environment of the English
classroom so that their vocabular-
ies might benefit from the change. -
Any further use of the term "gar-
goyled" to indicate any manner of
confusion will be strongly resisted.

To the Editor:
COME aesthetes tell us that are

combined to write a musical satir-
izing the Republicans. Whether
what Professors Eastman and Al--
lison have done is art or not will
probably be long debated.
But before the argument gets
under way, it might be wise to
take a look at their creation "The
Republicans Went That-A-Way."
It will be shown in Ann Arbor on-
ly once. , (It is rumored that this
is its pre-Broadway run).
The evening is Tuesday, Oct. 15,
the time is 8:30, and the place is
the Angell School, 1608 S. Uni-
versity.
The two professors will be atthe
door to accept your 50 cent ad-
mission, and to challenge your dis.
putations.

To the Editor:
W THE undersigned, as far as
it is known, are L. H. Scott's
only friends. Contrary to The
Daily, we neither find him "dread-
fully intelligent," nor are we par-
ticularly "fond of him."
