"One Of Our Aircraft Is Missing"

XetteP TO THE EDITOR
The Daily welcomes communications from its readers on matters et
general interest, and will publish all letters which are signed by the writer
and in good taste. Letters exceeding 300 words in length, defamatory or
libelous letters, and letters which for any reason are not in good taste will
be condensed, edited or withheld from publication at the discretion of the
editors.

GREAT MANY American writers have tried
to capture the essence of American life
within the confines of a single literary work.
Few have succeeded. Sunday, in his personally-
produced TV program, David 0. Selznick did
succeed in the job: he managed to express the
ideals, dogma, and spirit which motivate Am-
erican life.
The program, "Light's Diamond Jubilee
Show," was supposed to pay tribute to Edison
and the invention of the light bulb. Instead, it
was a two-hour commercial for Americana.
Through a series of skits, newsreel clips, and
songs, it provided a most concise picture of
American ideology. It was at once rather maud-
lin, saccarine, and. wordy. Yet, like the country
it represented, it had, in its chauvanistic gran-
deur, a kind of terrible and overpowering sense
of bigness.
Mr. Selznick did not just shove this con-
glomeration of half-truths and untruths down
the throats of his audience. True, his show
was on view on all four major television net-
works; if you wanted to watch TV, you
watched Mr. Selznick's show. But he threw in
some clever comedy by George Gobel and the
late Robert Benchley to ease the journey
down the esophagus. And it worked rather
well, in a slick, sophisticated way.
Ben Hecht, a self-proclaimed "child of the
century," wrote the master script for Mr. Selz-
nick. And in a specially filmed segment, Presi-
dent Eisenhower explained Mr. Hecht's main
theme: the faith and individuality that make
American life so noble. This was a rather big
theme; it has inspired countless thinkers and
writers.
But Mr. Hecht coated these concepts of
faith and individuality with some very spe-
cial American material. First, the characters
in the skits were all middle-class or upper-
middle class. They looked scrubbed behind
the ears, well fed, and highly contented-
there was no sign of either the frustration
or anxiety which the modern world is sup-
posed to have fostered in man. Then there
were some widely-accepted beliefs which Mr.
Hecht chose to present in a subtle, unob-
trusive manner.
In a mild fashion, Mr. Hecht preached on
science--the twentieth century "God." Science
will point the way. Most of the major scientific
figures of the past century were paraded across
the TV screen. Then there were scenes des-
cribing the future wonders of the world that
science would bring:, television-telephones, win-
dows that close when it rains, glow-in-the-dark
pavement, accident-free electronically control-
led automobiles, a heliocopter for dad, a dream
kitchen for mom, and assorted general im-
provements around the home. It looked very
promising.
Science is a kind of giant monster in our

explained that Jefferson and Washington were
just nice, humble folks you might meet any-
where.
All of this fresh-from-the-backwoods phi-
losophy tended to become a trifle tiresome,
but Mr. Hecht wrapped it up in nice little
skit-packages. One of these cast Helen Hayes
and Thomas Mitchell as an elderly couple
with an agrarian philosophy who inherit
$5,000. They go to New York supper clubs
and listen to singer Dorthy Dandridge before
departing for a Caribbean cruise. But at the
last minute the call of rustic, rural Ameri-
cana, U.S.A. finally gets 'em where it hurts.
They decide to come home and spend the
money on an air-conditioning unit.
There were select examples of Americana
which were given nice plugs. Lauren Bacall
and David Niven showed that American mar-
riages are free of infidelity even if the hus-
band looks at other women. Judith Ander-
son gave a histrionic reading in a Statue of
Liberty skit; and Tom Sawyer's whitewash
scene was resurrected.
What was probably most disturbing was the
tone of blatant optimism which prevailed
throughout the production. This is, in part,
the result of a moral viewing of modern day
politics. The twentieth century socialistic
movement is evil and the status quo democra-,
cies and republics are good. As in most mor-
-lities, good triumphs over evil.
Mr. Selznick presented the popular beliefs
inherent in present-day American society;
and he presented them well-so well that he
could offer them wrapped up in little skits
which might make the TV viewer forget to
analyze these beliefs. It would be difficult to
criticize Air. Selznick for trying to be popu-
lar by expounding pouplar ideas.
But it is possible, and necessary, to criticize
Americans for accepting these irrational, dog-
matic beliefs without analysis, without logic. To
assume that a mastery of nature implies a
mastery of human social forces is foolish. To
look for the ordinary in place of the extra-
ordinary is anti-intellectual. To believe that
American ideology and life is so perfect it Can-
not be improved is absurd. It is the faith in
such dogmatic principles that dominates Am-
erican political, social, and economic thought
today. Moreover, these principles destroy Mr.
Selznick's precious sense of individualism and
faith in a better world.
Today if one does not believe what Mr. Selz-
nick represents as American and what Am-
ericans believe is American, one is an un-
American, an unforgivable sin.
America must, at all costs, stand for free-
dom: the freedom to travel the unpopular
tracks of belief in the hope that truth will be
found. For only through an exhaustive, com-

On Second Thought .. .
To the Editor:
IN THE week or so since the pre-
sentation of the movie "Or-
pheus" it has become a pastime
among the minor intellectuals of
the campus to talk in a desultory
manner of the various "interpre-
tations" and "inner meanings" al-
leged to constitute the "message"
of Mr. Cocteau. Most of these men-
tal perambulations about the film,
by concentrating on the old tra-
ditional settings of the Orpheus
legend, seem to me to miss the
point. I have arrived at 'a point of
view which seems to place in per-
spective the rather sharp. contrast
between the old legend and the
new setting.
Mr. Cocteau, tired of intermin-
able variations on the theme of the
man who has lost his soul, decided
to compound a setting of a situ-
ation wherein a man, in trying to
save his soul, succeeds in losing
everything else. By casting the
central figure as the poet, Orphe-
us, Cocteau can symbolize his soul
as a woman in black who repre-
sents the spirit or inspiration of
his poetry. When in the throes of
composition an artist is often des-
cribed as dead to the world, hence
the alternative interpretation of
the black one as death. The signi-
ficance of Eurydice is her sym-
bolizing of the material means
which an artist must use in com-
municating his inspiration to oth-
ers; she is his link with the rest
of the world. He loses her by go-
ing off the deep end into incom-
prehensible inspiration. In a final
desperate effort to regain his com-
posure as a poet, he seeks to re-
cover his communicative mater-
ials through recourse to Inspira-
tion Herself. She, the lady in black,
is wiser than Orpheus; she, at
great personal emotional sacri-
fice, sends him back to the world
that she may retain her reality
therein.

M1arxist Speakers .. .
To the Editor:
W HENEVER I get into a discus-
sion, there is invariably a live-
ly interest in where the Labor
Youth League stands on various
issues, what kind of an organiza-
tion it is, what our interest is in
Marxism, and so forth.
We have attempted to answer
just such questions, but we have
difficulties in presenting our po-
sition to the campus. Why?
Let us take an example. The ma-
jor part of our program is design-
ed to acquaint the campus with
-Marxist thought. To fulfill that
purpose last year, we had a series
of speakers, Marxist authorities
in various fields. We sponsored Jo-
seph Starobin, a correspondent
who had been in Indo-China and
China for a- year; Howard Fast,
the novelist; Mike Gold, a found-
er of "proletarian literature;" Dox-
,ey Wilkerson, an outstanding
Marxist authority on the Negro
question; Thomas Dennis, a mem-
ber of the Executive Committee of
the Communist Party of Michigan.
But we were and continue to be
unable to present such speakers to
a wide audience because we have
literally been unable to obtain a
public meeting place in all Ann
Arbor. We have tried churches,
halls, restaurants, the League, the
Union-with no success.
We think there are hundreds of
students on campus who would
like* to har such sneake1rs- wie-~th.

ums. We welcome every suggestion
on how to make this campaign a
success.

Critical Metronomes ...
To the Editor:
IN REGARD to the letter of
Daily, I say, "good going, Jean!"
It's about time somebody put a
few of those "Maynard St. quasi-
intellectuals" in their place.
I was always under the impres-
sion that high school seniors were
supposed to be the ones who knew
it all. I can see where they have
a lot of competitions coming from
brilliant conversations in the
Betsy.' " These are students dedi-
cated to music; something bigger
than themselves. (They admit
'here is such a thing.)
I know absolutely nothing about
nusic, except that I am one of
nillions who enjoy being enter-
,ained. These critics must go to
the concerts with metronome in
one hand and a book of English,
French, German, and Italian
phonetics in the other, to see if
the performer is keeping correct
time, and pronouncing each vowel
exactly right. (They even profess
to being phoneticists.) It is not
surprising to me they don't enjoy
these concerts. Why don't they
forget the metronome and phone-
tics book and just sit back and
listen. After hearing the music
as the layman does, write their
critiques. Write it honestly, and
don't try to show the some 18,000
students all they know about mu-
sic. No one cares! The most in-
telligent can also be the most
ignorant.
Admittedly there is a lot of
music that is no good from the
musicians' view point. I doubt if
it is all bad, and that every per-
former is worse than the other.
There must be some good in it.
As far as I can see, no good exists
for these critics.

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-
Round
The Washington Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON - Here are some
more quick looks at the red-hot
election picture: in Pennsylvania,,
the GOP candidate for governor,
Lloyd Wood, is a turkey farmer.
The Democratic candidate, George
Leader, is a chicken farmer,
The low price of eggs is figuring
heavily in the farm vote ... For
the first time in 20 years, a Demo-
crat in Pennsylvania is given a
real chance to win. Reasons are:
unemployment, especially in the
coal regions; plus graft in Gover-
nor Fine's administration. Fifteen
of his officials, including his per-
sonal secretary, Fred Hare, and
one member of his cabinet, Ar-
temas Leslie, have been indicted
for macing (forcing political con-
tributions) ... On top of this,
when Congress voted increased old-
age pensions, the Fine adminis-
tration proceeded to reduce the
state's share to oldsters by the
amount of increase voted in Wash-
ington . . . Oldsters were really
sore . . Highly respected GOP
Sen. Big Jim Duff, an old enemy
of Governor Fine's, has been trot-
ted out to try to pull Republican
factions together, but everyone
knows his heart isn't in it . . . so
Pennsylvania is certain to send
more Democratic congressmen to
Washington.
THE GOP IN MICHIGAN is
hoisted on its own petard - in
fact on two of them. No. 1 is the
so-called "General Motore Admin-
istration" in Washington; No. 2 is
the political strategy of Chevrolet
dealer Arthur Summerfield, now
postmaster general . . . GM gave
Chrysler such stiff competition that
Chrysler has closed down early to
bring out new models. Other com-
panies have followed suit. Summer-
field begged the motor moguls not
to retool until after elections, but
General Motors competition was
too tough. They disregarded his
pleas. That's why Detroit faces
one of its worst unemployment
periods right now . . . It was Post-
master Summerfield who also ma-
neuvered to put Pat McNamara,
the Democratic candidate for the
Senate, into the race ... Summer-
field, of course, worked behind the
scenes, got the AFL and Team-
sters to put up McNamara in the
Democratic primary to offset the
late Blair Moody and his powerful
CIO backing. But since Moody's
death, McNamara has united CIO-
AFL backing. And judging by the
loud alarms sounded by GOP Sen.
Homer Ferguson, McNamara may
win.
Gordon, Republican, ran paid ads
in the American Legion newspaper
attacking the military record of
his opponent, Dick Neuberger.
"During World War II," read the
ad, "Cordon's opponent, through
political connections, got himself
where he could continue his profit-
able writing career." ... The Cor-
don machine began spreading this
story all over the state. They
played up Cordon as a "real vet-
eran" who had served as state
commander of the American Le-
gion . .. A check of Cordon's
military career, however, revealed
that this "real veteran" was in no
more position to brag than Con-
gressman Stringfellow. He had
been in World War I only two
months and two weeks - from
Sept. 2, 1918, to Nov. 26, 1918. .
Neuberger, on the other hand,
was in'World War II thirteen times
as long -from July 15, 1942, to
Aug. 12, 1945 - a little over three
years. He served much of that
time in Alaska . . . This three-

year service turned out to be
longer than the total military ca-
reers of Cordon plus the other top
GOP candidates in Oregon ...
Senator Cordon didn't even give
up his job as assessor of Douglas
County during his brief 85-day
.raining period in the Army.
It's been crowded out of the
nleadlines, but 17 states are at
each other's throats in a trans-
portation battle that may drive
small trucking firms out of busi-
,iess.
It's the kind of interstate war
which the founding fathers sought
to prevent when they set up a
homogenous United States and pro-
vided that no state could charge
a tariff against another.
The state of Ohio began the bat-
tle when, because of heavy truck
traffic across its centrally located
borders, it slapped an extra
"third stricture" tax on out-of-
state trucks. New York immedi-
ately followed suit, also imposed
a ton-mile levy aimed at squeez-
ing as much in taxes as possible
from transient trucks.
This set off a whole series of
retaliatory measures. Other states
fought back with their own taxes,
some of them especially aimed at
competing states, so that the found-
ing fathers' whole concept of no
interstate taxes or tariffs against
another state has gone glimmer-
ing.
As a result, some 15 trucking
companies had to move their

ART
TWO WORTHWHILE but unpublicized exhibitions are in their last
week at the Museum of Art in Alumni Memorial Hall. The Classical
Motif, prepared by the Department of Circulating Exhibitions, Museum
of Modern Art, New York and French Painting at Mid Century, cir-
culated by the American Federation of Arts.
The Classical Motif show presents a selection or paintings in vari-
ous media by modern artists in which we may see our classical heritage
reflected in subject, mood or technique. Actually, "Classic" as it is
used for this exhibition refers not to a specific period or style but to
the entire cultural expression that we associate with ancient Greece
and Rome. In a sense the term, while arresting, is misleading and, as
applied, is so broad as to be almost meaningless. However, the purpose
of the show in revealing the inspiration that certain artists have drawn
from the Mediterranean region is laudatory enough; and most import-
ant, there are some good pictures to be seen.
Picasso is, of course, represented by several drawings and an
etching. Monumental in its pagan freshness is his FAWN PLAYING
PIPES. A visit to the galleries is more than amply rewarded by a
study of the gentle, pulsing inkline of this drawing which is able so
expressively to create form and feeling. Glee, in GATE TO HADES,
transforms mythology into a personal fantasy of delicate thread
shapes and carefully modulated textures and tonalities. Particular-
ly impressive to the reviewer was Theodoros Stamos' THE ALTAR.
This artist is wonderfully sensitive in capturing the ancient mem-
ories that seem to lurk in the earth and under the sea and which
he expresses through the fissurelike rhythms and muted tones of
powerful forms. Also exhibited are Gottlieb, Maillol, Matisse, Jac-
ques Villon, Modigliani and many others.
The second half of our artistic double feature has also a dubious
title. It could have been more correctly called Some Modern French
Water Colors since all the works are either water color or gouache.
The French have never had an outstanding school of water color
painters. This exhibition will probably not cause any important revision
of that opinion since many of the water colors exhibited are really in-
tended as notes and sketches for a projected work in oil. Unfortunately,
they remain just that and are not the very intimate revelations that we
associate with the sketches of a master.
However, among the pictures that exist in their own right are sever-
al delicate compositions by Zao-Wou-Ki. It is hoped the discriminating
viewer will not make unfavorable comparisons between the artist's wore
and the masterpieces of Klee but rather look about and see Zao-Wou-
Ki's art in relation to the other works exhibited. His painting has the
freshness and immediacy which is so much part of the medium. More
impressive is the work of Ubac with its outsurging rhythms and reson-
ant earth hues. Vertical Shapes and On a White Table Cloth by Ubac
are strong compositions. For a suggestion of great dynamism with an
economy of means the small compositions of Nicolas de Stael are worth
some study. Jean Bazaine's small gouache, Landscape, has a richness
of surface and a sureness of structure that makes it a gem among the
other paintings.
