DEADLOCK IN EUROPE:
London Agreement Obstacle:
The Controversial Saar

A SIX-HOUR conference Tuesday between French
premier Mendes-France and West German Chan-
cellor Konrad Adenauer brought the long-standing
dispute over the West German Saar territory to a
temporary deadlock.
But more important, the conference may stall
action expected to be completed this week on the
treaty organizations decided on at the London con-
ference October 3.
Actions expected to end this week, as the Lon-
don Conference questions are resolved in Paris,
are the granting of sovereignty to West Germany
and Italy, a new Brussels Treaty which would in-
clude West Germany and Italy, and a North At-
lantic council act to admit West Germany into
the North Atlantic alliance, with a twelve-division
army.
Mendes-France has claimed that France won't
sign agreements for West Germany's entrance into
either the North Atlantic or Brussels Treaty organ-
ization until a ┬žatisfactory Saar decision is reached.
Unless he and Adenauer can agree on the fate of
the controversial Saar area, the other questions, all
vitally important, will face further tabling and
stagnation.
A brief review of the Saar situation, which has
long hindered Franco-German relations, would be
advisable under the circumstances. The Saar lies
in a corner where France, Germany and Luxem-
bourg intersect, and is rich with some of Europe's
most crucial and valuable coal and iron resources.
A plan decided on last May by Mendes-France
and German representatives stressed "Europeani-

zation" of the Saar area-an economic conven-
tion between France and the Saar, eventually to
include Germany.
This "Europeanization" plan stemmed from a Eu-
ropean Defense Community plan, two years ago,
for the Saar to fall under jurisdiction of a Euro-
pean Political Community. Both plans became deli-
cate issues in both countries.
Mendes-France hopes that if the Saar is made a
Franco-German area a strong trade increase will
develop between his country and West Germany.
With French agricultural strength and increased
German industrial production resulting, both coun-
tries could better carry out their national econo-
mies in Africa and elsewhere.
Nine foreign ministers, including U.S. Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles and British Foreign
Secretary Anthony Eden, are expected in Paris to-
day to complete work on the treaties. They will be
expected to use their influence to push the Saar dis-
pute to a conclusion, enabling work to finish the
other decisions.
French interests in the Saar would permit France
a great increase in industrial strength-allowing it
to hold its own in vital coal, iron and steel.
A decision on the Saar area, somewhat slighted
in previous conferences, is urgently needed-but
it should not be rushed to an over-hasty conclu-
sion. Too much is at stake to allow the entire
Western European defense plan to collapse.
The nine foreign ministers, we hope, will exert
the proper strong influence in pushing the Saar
dispute to a timely and worthwhile conclusion.

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-
Round
WASHINGTON-Generous Doug
McKay, the likable secretary of the
interior, let loose a blast at me the
other day for describing him as
generous in selling part of the
Rogue River National Forest to a
private mining company and for
considering the releasing of the
Navy's and Interior Department's
oil reserve in Alaska to private oil
company exploitation.
This is the first time I have been
called a liar by a member of the
Eisenhower cabinet - an "honor"
frequently bestowed upon me dur-
ing the Roosevelt and Truman ad-
ministrations. The fact that the
Eisenhower administration h a s
been so mild-mannered has caused'
my wife to insinuate that perhaps
the old man was slipping.
The Liar Scoreboard
I suppose, however, that this is
inevitable. For any newspaperman
worth his salt in Washington nec-
essarily must step on people's toes.
He must offend people. And when
he does, naturally they get mad
and hurl epithets.
Clinton McKinnon, publisher of
the Los Angeles News, asked me
the other day what the score was
on the name-crllhig business, and
here is part of the "you're-a-liar"
tr.,,lation.
1,, nator McCarthy of Wisconsin
ca. ed me a liar and all sorts of
other names from the safety of the
Senate floor after I reported that
he received a $10,000 fee from Lus-
tron for a brief housing pamphlet.
Since then, a Senate committee
passing on McCarthy's record has
confirmed this up to the hilt.
Congressman Parnell Thomas of
New Jersey denied kickbacks and
called me a liar, but went to jail
because of those kickbacks.
Harry Had a Name For It
President Truman gave a new
twist to the liar charge after I
criticized his friend and military
aide, General Vaughan, for accept-
ing an Argentine medal at a time
when Dictator Peron was maneu-
vering to get a large loan from
the United States. Afterward,
Congress r e f u s e d to approve
Vaughan's medal, and a Senate
committee found Vaughan guilty of
considerable influence wirepulling,
giving away deep freezes, demot-
ing Army officers- who tangled with
John Maragon, and getting build-
ing materials for the Tanforan
racetrack at a time when veterans
were supposed to have preference.
Now I don't want to give the im-
pression that I am always right.
I'm not. Being human I make mis-
takes. But I endeavor when I do
make them to correct them.
However, regarding Secretary
McKay, much as I like him, I am
still convinced he has been much
too generous in leasing out the pub-
lie domain. Tomorrow I'll report
on this further.

TODAY and TOMORROW
... by WALTER LIPPMANN

"Listen-I'm Getting Worried About
My Own Power"

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

COEXISTENCE IN ITALY
ITALY IS THE main testing ground of the theory
that in order to take over the government in a
European cpuntry the Communist party must have
the Red army behind it. This theory does not hold
in Asia where Communism grows upon native na-
tionalism. But in Europe with its highly developed
national feeling and its free traditions the theory
has until now held up. There is no European coun-
try west of the Soviet frontier that has ever become
Communist except as a result of military occupa-
tion by the Red army or-as in Czechoslovakia-
under the threat of intervention by the Red army.
It has been a reliable working rule in Europe that
the boundaries of the practical action of the Red
army are the boundaries of Communist expansion.
The visitor to Italy is bound to ask himself
whether this rule will be breached. For in Italy
the Communist party, together with the captive
Nenni Socialists, is the best organized, the most
ably and shrewdly led, the richest and the most
coherent of the Italian parties. It dominates the
labor unions, is a growing power among the vil-
lagers in southern Italy, and it has great support
and influence in the middle class.
The Christian Democratic party, on the other
hand, is in an unhappy condition, lacking the will,
the energy, the purpose and a good reputation for
integrity in order to do battle effectively against
the Communists. There is a reform movement un-
der way within the party. It is led by Fanfani who
has come to be regarded as the man of the future.
But the reforms are expected to take a year and
the results are not at all certain.
Thus the visitor's first impression is that of a
growing Communist party facing the declining dem-
ocratic parties. As the Communists are so near the
point where they would be numerous enough to be
entitled to take over the government, the position
is-on its face and taken logically-very precarious.
*s * * *
Y[ETONE CAN, I believe, say with some confi-
dence--while' keeping one's fingers crossed-
that the underlying situation differs from the ap-
pearances and will check their logical development.
The non-Communist parties are in control of the
apparatus of the state, of the bureaucracy, the
armed forces gnd the police. They will not, I have
been told, surrender their sovereign power to the
Communists if they fall behind in the count of
heads. That is because, as Togliatti has frankly
said, there would never again be a count of heads
by which they could recover their rights.
This decision within the government party means,
if it is as firm as it appears to be, that the Com-
munists cannot take over the government without
great violence. In such a struggle they could not

count on the help of the Soviet Union. For in or-
der to intervene the Red army would have to con-
quer Tito and would have to start a world war.

* * *

*

THE UNDERLYING situation explains what ev-
eryone agrees is the present Communist party
line in Italy. It is to refrain from, in fact to avoid,
coming to power. The party today is a great pow-
er in Italy and a formidable factor in the whole
Mediterranean area. Since it cannot hope to take
over power bloodlessly, since it cannot conquer
power easily, there is nothing to gain and every-
thing to lose by attempting to take over.
It is a reasonable guess that the Italian Com-
munist party is under orders from Moscow not
to take the responsibilities and the risks of at-
tempting to form a government. For if they at-
tempted it, the whole Soviet policy of relaxing
tension in the world would blow up with a bang.
The effect of the Communists taking over Italy
would be an earthquake compared with which the
seizure of Czechoslovakia was a mere tremor.
Yet Czechoslovakia was the beginning of the cold
war and of American rearmament.
S s s
WITHOUT BEING complacent 'about it, without
minimizing the urgent need of a rejuvenation
and a cleansing of the democratic parties, it nev-
ertheless looks as if the internal equilibrium in
Italy might last as long as the international equilib-
rium holds. I would suppose that the solution of
the Communist problem in Italy will come after,
or perhaps along with, but not before the resolu-
tion of the European problem which turns on Ger-
many.

Inter"p-reting
The News
By J. M. ROBERTS
Associated Press News Analyst
ONE OF THE great frustrations of diplomacy in
these times is that the settlement of every
problem seems to create or accentuate another one,
This is pointed up by the signing of the An-
glo-Egyptian agreement ending British occupa-
tion of the Suez Canal zone.
Britons are not happy about it, of course. The
Beaverbrooks refer to it as a new low of the im-
perial idea. That is an exaggeration. The low in
British imperialism was reached with India, and all
else is or will be anticlimax, merely incidents in the
rising world tide of independence.
Imperialism, so far as Britain is concerned, hard-
ly exists any more. Even in Central Africa and the
West Indies the main idea of imperialism, which
was to exploit underdeveloped areas for the bene-
fit of a metropolitan nation, is rapidly being re-
versed, and the responsibilities of control are be-
coming more of a liability than an asset. France,
the only other Western nation which still con-
trols large nonrelated areas is beginning to learn
this too. That leaves Russia as the only great pow-
er still practicing what we grew up to know as im-
perialism,
There's Vo use in the British crying over spill-
ed dominions. It was inevitable. Magna Charta,
the Boston tea party, the storming of the Bas-
tille-essentially unimportant but highly indica-
tive steps in man's search for freedom-made
sure of that.

AT HILL AUDITORIUM . . .
BOSTON SYMPHONY OR-
CHESTRA, Charles Munch,
conductor
Bach: Suite No. 4 in D major
Dvorak: Symphony No. 5
Berlioz: "Romeo and Juliet" ex-
cerpts)
APPROPRIATELY last night's
performance of Dvorak's fifth
symphony by Dr. Munch and the
Boston Orchestra commemorated
fifty years since the passing of
that famous Czech composer. The
concert's significance however was
in the playing of excerpts from
the "Romeo and Juliet" by Berlioz.
Dvorak's symphony is of course
melodious, and in a sense heroic.
Its themes are interesting, easily
understood and communicated,
and the symphony's presentation
is straight-forward and vigorous.
Its popularity is not undeserved.
But not even the stunning per-
formance that Dr. Munch gave it
could conceal the fact that it
is not impassioned music like the
Berlioz. The Dvorak and Berlioz
had performances of which only a
truly great orchestra is capable.
The result was that side by side
the Dvorak was a work .of equal
proportion, but less import.
A good deal of the recent revival
of Berlioz can be attributed to Dr.
Munch. He has recorded him faith-
fully so that LP catalogs now al-
low him as much space as other
famous composers. Dr. Munch
even devoted the major portion of

last summer's Berkshire Festival
to the works of Berlioz.
There is good reason. Berlioz
could never find a better cham-
pion than in his fellow country-
man, nor a conductor more at
home in marshalling the' ull or-
chestral forces to best advan-
tage. The orchestral tone last
night, both in solos and ensem-
ble, was a perfect blend; the
low strings, violas and cellos,
were matchless in their beauty.
Interpretively Dr. Munch, with
a truly sensitive understanding,
reproduced the work's grand
conception, with all its subtle-
ties, from tricky rhythmic phras-
ings in the Queen Mab Scherzo
to the long line of the love
scene, elegantly pictured.
But Berlioz, himself, contributed
the most. Here is music really in-
tended for the orchestra. The in-
creased orchestration he requires
is not for the sake of increased
bombast, but for finely shaded
nuances and balances which give
the orchestra increased richness
and flavor. The Dvorak with its
simple and plain orchestration had
ten times the bombast, one tenth
the subtlety or refinement.
The music of Berlioz is a very'
meaningful personal expression.
Previously when he was little per-
formed, except for the Symphonie
Fantastique and a few overtures,
he was known as an innovator, a
crackpot always seeking new de-
vices. The many performances he
receives today show him as a com-
poser of great art.
The concert began with the

Bach Suite No. 4 in D major.
I Have heard Dr. Munch con-
duct this work with a small
orchestra, many less strings. The
result then was that the piece
had vitality and movement
which was not weighed down by
a large orchestra. Also it had a
balance so that the strings didn't
obscure the woodwinds or trum-
pets.
With last night's performance
by the full orchestra much of this
was lost. The trumpets seemed
more like added color or doublings
which would appear at various
moments; the balance favored the
strings far too much. Though these
things did hamper the perform-
ance, it did not become too un-
satisfactory. It would take a good
deal more tampering to destroy
the effectiveness of such great
music. The vitality and enthusi-
asm which Dr. Munch has as a
conductor were communicated to
the orchestra, and thus to the
music itself, giving it life even
though handicapped.
The Boston Symphony is always
a welcome visitor to Ann Arbor.
The impression they leave year
after year has been one of gifted
musicianship and inspired playing.
Their concert last night was as
good an example of this as ever.

WUS Drive...
To the Editor:
IT HAS BEEN brought to our at-
tention that there are some
questions in the minds of students
and administration concerning
the distribution of World Univer-
sity Service funds. In particular,
there is the impression that WUS
administration takes a 68% toll of
incoming funds. This is a miscon-
ception which is entirely out of
proportions with reality. WUS ad-
ministrative costs for last year
(in the United States) accounted
for only 5.8% of the total expen-
diture of $417,062.38. Another
14.3% was used for fund-raising
projects. This, however, includes
the education of American cam-
puses to WUS, and is an integral
part of the entire WUS program.
A further breakdown shows that
the largest division was the 41.9%
actually spent for the internation-
al program projects. Other figures
are 13.7%, DP program in U.S.;
12.8%, education for international
understanding; 5.3%, special pro-
jects and direct earmarkings for
projects in foreign universities;
2.9%, special Korean emergency
relief; 1.3%, CARE food parcels
and books; 1.9%, emergency needs
in international program, and .1%
retained for ongoing reserve.
Upon request to the regional of-
fices, the funds raised by a WUS
committee may be designated for
use solely on a given project. Re-
alizing the need of universities
throughout the world, the local
committee has not chosen only one
recipient, as has been done in sev-
eral of the past drives. (Last year
no special location was chosen, so
the proceeds were spent as the fig-
ures in the first paragraphs show).

To the Editor:
MR. DAVIS deserved his dismiss-
al from the University facul-
ty. There was reason to believe
that he was not a good American,
but an enemy of the American in-
stitution. His refusal to answer
questions put before him bears out
this fact. If a man is in opposi-
tion to the system of which he is
a member, why should he be al-
lowed to remain a member? When
we find an onion in a rose garden
we are only too glad to place it
among other onions. In dismissing
Davis we only gave him his chance
to seek out his place in the system
he loves so well.

Musical Snobbery ...~
To the Editor:
HAVING KEPT my peace for ov-
er a year, I should like at last
to voice my protest concerning the
reviews of Choral Union concerts,
which regularly appear in The
Daily and almost as regularly pan
the artists. We boast of having the
greatest and most widely appre-
ciated musicians come to perform
for us; but somehow they never
measure up to our standards. It
is, of course, the review of Eleanor
Steber's recent concert that has
finally exasperated me. The first
two thirds of Miss Steber's pro-
gram consisted of admittedly
great music which was admittedly
performed in a manner worthy of
the praise of even a School of
Music student. But the last several
numbers were light, one was ac-
tually semi-popular, and-worst of
all-a few were funny.
This seems to be the view taken
by Mr. Tice, and though I'm an-
noved at his "snnhhorv' (as he

while Eleanor Steber, who is ob-
viously a musician as well as a
great singer, can appreciate music
other than that of the masters
enough to perform it beautifully
and with distinction, a music stu-.
dent finds it hard to do so. And
finally, I think Mr. Tice might
safely have gone a step farther in
his few words of praise and called
Mr. Quillian's "generally compe-
tent" accompanying even rather
good.
I hope that many others enjoy-
ed this particular concert as much
as I did. It was a most satisfying
musical experience.

CYL Study ."
To the Editor:
A RECENT deluge of student in-
terest in the Capitalist Youth
League is extremely pleasing to
note. We shall make every effort
to reply to letters in The Daily to
better inform the reading public
(assuming that the public can
read) about our organization.
Quickly passing over one letter
obviously written by ungramma-
tical dolts, we reach another in-
quiry which appeared in The Daily
Saturday.
Indeed, the organization will
cast a contemptuous glance at
other economic systems but the
capitalist system will receive the
most intensive study. The teach-
ings of W. R. Hearst will be used
as a general guide to the field, al-
though recent publications by pro-
minent Republicans concerning
prospects for repeal of the social-
ist anti-trust laws will be exam-
ined first.

On Servility
To the Editor:

the authoritarian influence of the
Catholic church responsible . .
and it is a wonder we have very
few cases of schizophrenias. I
think it is a form of servility that
is on the way out. Again, it can
be a servility that depends very
much on what the circumstance
are, and just who are the personal-
ities the student has to deal with.
I will discount the authoritarian
complex you refer to. As children,
most Filipinos are trained to rend-
er service, obedience, filiel piety
. . . the manifestations of which
you mistook for something author-
itarian. The same family pattern
is reflected in the people's rela-
tions to their government.
Mr. Hawley said that the cul-
tural poverty in the Philippines
is attenuated to its social and
economic conditions.
This is an incomplete picture in
the sense that we have not had
much chance to develop our own
culture . . . that what culture we
saved under three foreign domi-
nations is surprising.
But there's something else too
... under the Spanish regime the
Philippines produced a number of
outstanding men in the field of
politics, literature, and other arts.
I can mention a few such as Jose
Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, Mabini,
Juan Luna, Balagtas. It took phy-
sical and mental oppression to
bring out the genius of these peo-
ple. But there are other kinds of
oppression, Mr. Hawley, the kind
that is deceptively experienced
. . . the kind that lulls you, dulls
your perceptions, the kind that
contributes to your decadence.
When the Filipinos tasted the be-
nign regime of the Americans, he
was also exposed to their gim-
imcks . . . perhaps I say this too
facetiously but I assure Mr. Haw-
ley that a lot more money, imag-
ination, American ingenuity were
expended on teaching the Filipino

ed to see what new barb was be.
ing stuck into our Secretary of De-
fense. I found it in the last eight
sentences where I believe the edi-
torialist correctly inferred some of
Wilson's economics from his "dog"
remarks.
Our Secretary of Defense is said
to hold the odd belief that people
should break family ties and leave
old friends in order to find a place
of employment. His "peculiar"
economics includes the belief that
people should worry about not
earning an income. He might even
argue that our automobile jndus-
try in Detroit was the result of
this "peculiar" economics. He
might suggest that many people
left other states and indeed coun-
tries just to go where they could
earn a living.
All of this is not to say that the
springing up of industry where
there are large pools of unemploy-
ed wishing to work is unhealthy.
In fact this could certainly be
found to be part of Wilson's eco-
nomics too. But it is to say that if
we follow our editorialist's implied
economics and do away with Wil-
son's that the recent facetious ex-
ample of the U.S. Government
buying up surplus automobiles to
support the employment in the au-
to industry will become less and
less funny.
Secretary Wilson is not a pro-
ponent of the security by surplus
economy which our editorialist is
in fact supporting. He-believes that
one of the life-blood ingredients
of our economy is still the mobil-
ity of labor. And for our editor-
ialist to conclude that jobs just
don't exist for the present unem-
ployed is to conclude that our eco-
nomy has stopped growing and in
general to write finis to this coun-
try's economic strength. I will
have to concur with our Secretary
of Defense and hope to see soon
these Wilson-defined kennel does
