WILD WEEKEND:
Columbus Bedlam Reveals
Lack of Class

"You Think ?"

MUSIC REVIEW

By DAVE LIVINGSTON
Daily Sports Editor

T HE OHIO STATE football team deserves all
the praise in the world. The Buckeyes are
a great team, for it took a great one to- beat
Michigan Saturday.
The Ohio gridders accepted their victory
gratefully and gracefully-they appreciated the
frustration and heartbreak that were as much
a part, as well as a result, of the titanic strug-
gle as were the bushels of roses that flooded
the State dressing room at its conclusion.
But to Columbus-more precisely, to the
football fanatics who inhabit the city that is
far better known as the seat of Ohio State
football than as the capital of Ohio-we ad-
vance only our sympathy.
FOR TWO days the milling throngs that en-
gulfed the city completely lost their equi-
libriufi. Often such athletic events as took
place in the packed Ohio State Stadium Sat-
urday are used as an excuse for a little excess
indulging and hilarity. Football was not an
excuse this past weekend. It was the cause and
it provided the effect.
Somebody remarked Saturday night that the
celebration downtown surpassed that of V-J
Day. It wouldn't be surprising, for we are con-
vinced that 90 per cent of the people in Co-
lumbus would rather beat Michigan than win
a war
THERE IS A vague something called "class."
We still don't know exactly what it is, ex-
cept that it's what the people who took over
Columbus sorely lack..This is not "sour grapes."
We repeat: the Buckeye football team was mag-
nificent in every respect. It is the people who
"support" the team that make us wonder once
again about the place of athletics in our so-
ciety.
To say that football in Columbus was blown
up out of perspective would be the understate-
ment of the year. As far as we could tell the
Governor would have had to declare Columbus
a disaster area had their team lost.
As it was he might have done so. Perhaps
it can be attributed to lack of experience, for
Columbus isn't used to winning, but the animal
Instincts that psychologists tell us are in every-
one blossomed out after the game almost as
fast as did the roses.

THE MICHIGAN band attempted to give its
post-game performance. It was nothing
more than an attempt, for THE OHIO STATE
CHEERLEADERS led a snake dance through
the ranks. One bandsman still has a swollen
lip. His cornet was jammed down his throat as
he fought to keep his hat from being stolen.
The same hysteria (the papers called it "Rose
Fever") gripped all of Columbus, manifesting
itself in every conceivable form. In the press-
box the men standing right behind us, who had
through three quarters pieced together a guillo-
tine from which Woody Hayes' head was to
roll Sunday morning lost little time in calling
the losing Wolverines such things as "chicken-
hearted," and had equally inappropriate phras-
es for the man they had crucified for 45 of the
60 minutes of the game.
N THE Ohio State locker room even Hayes
could utter nothing more intelligent than
"Whoopee" as he jumped off a chair. When
Michigan Athletic Director Fritz Crisler came
in and offered his congratulations Hayes im-
mediately yelled for a photographer to get a
picture of such a "memorable event."
Downtown all was bedlam. Buses were de-
railed and bonfires burned at the intersection
of High and Broad Streets as the hotels rocked
and rolled with the sounds of "I don't give
a damn for the whole state of Michigan."
The newspapers reflected the prevailing at-
titude as the first pages of their Sunday edi-
tions talked of nothing but roses and the bril-
liant Buckeyes and humbled Michigan. Mur-
ders, wars, and peace negotiations were rele-
gated to inside pages.
It was an interesting weekend. We had heard
stories about Columbus after a Michigan-Ohio
State game. But after all, we are from Ann
Arbor and the University of Michigan, where
football is still maintained as at least some
semblance of sport. We could hardly be expect-
ed to be prepared for what we saw and heard.
Go down to Columbus in two years, when the
Buckeyes and Wolverines will again generate
a happy delirium. We guarantee that when you
leave, whether the Maize and Blue wins or los-
es, you will never have been so proud of Ann
Arbor and the University of Michigan. Maybe
that something called "class" isn't so vague
after all.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

i s ii

At Rackham...
Stanley Quartet (Gilbert Ross,
Emil Raab, violins; Robert Cour-
te, viola; Oliver Edel, cello.) All-
Beethoven program: Quartet in
F major, Op. 18, No. 1; Quartet
in E-flat major, Op. 74; Quartet
in A minor, Op. 132.
TECHNICAL PRECISION, fine
ensemble, and interpretative
rightness made Sunday's concert
(the fourth in the Stanley Quar-
tet's complete Beethoven series) a
rewarding one. The players were
all in good form, and the music
was served faithfully. The F ma-
jor quartet which opened the pro-
gram is as fresh and expressive a
work as Beethoven ever wrote, ex-
cept perhaps for thefinal move-
ment, in which the quality of the
ideas seems to drop a little. The
work was played deftly and grace-
fully, although a little more atten-
tion should have been paid to dy-
namics. There were a few phrases
which, instead of tapering off
slightly at the end, simply disap-
peared. Prevailing air currents in
Rackham Lecture Hall caused
some difficulty in the first move-
ment, it might be added. A gust
of wind turned over a page in Mr.
Edel's part, and he continued to
play from memory until there was
a rest where he could flip back the
page. Resourceful fellows, these
chamber music players.
The beautiful and warm-hued E-
flat Quartet came off equally well
in performance. The first move-
ment, in particular, was planned
in such a way that the famous piz-
zicato passages (which give the
work its unwelcome nickname of
the "Harp Quartet") created a
striking impression of suspense and
expectation, which was resolved
by the reappearance of the open-
ing material. The slow movement
had a slightly harsh tonal quality,
but the scherzo and finale were ex-
cellently paced and executed. The
A minor quartet is, of course, one
of the masterpieces of the litera-
ture. The Stanley group has really
arrived at an interpretation of this
music; one which might be some-
what lacking in finesse and tonal
polish, but one that presents the
music intact, with the sweep and
expressive power it needs. With
two more concerts to go in the
Beethoven cycle, the quartet has
already done impressive things,
and we may safely expect more to
come.

A t Hill Auditorium
Leonard Warren, baritone.
LEONARD WARREN, who, ac-
cording to his advertising, is
the World's Greatest Baritone,
sang a very pleasant and entertain-
ing recital at Hill on Sunday eve-
ning. Mr. Warren is not 'particu-
larly renowned as a recital singer,
while as an opera baritone he
ranks at the top. So it was not sur-
prising to hear five arias during
the course of the evening. Mr.
Warren possesses one of the most
effective vocal instruments that I
know of. His tone is always rich,
mellow and a ..oy to listen to for
the, sheer sound of it. The beauty
of his concepts of musical line and
phrasing, and his masterful exe-
cution of those concepts mark him
as a musician of great understand-
ing and imagination. However, Sun-
day evening I waited the whole
recital for him to "open up" and
give us the full beauty and power
of his voice; he never did. Indeed,
the upper part of his register was
so covered that the volume and in-
tensity actually diminished (as the
pitch rose. But on the other hand
there are ifew baritones that can
demonstrate such control on high
g's and a's as we heard Sunday.
I suspect that Mr. Warren was
rather tired; at least it seemed
that inertia bound him throughout
the evening to a rather restricted
level of emotional and vocal ex-
pression.
The arias included Ford's mono-
logue from Falstaff, Wolfram's
"Song to the Evening Star" from
Tannhauser, Valentine's aria from
Faust, "Largo al factotum" from
The Barber of Seville (which near-
ly fell to pieces pianistically and
vocally), and "Di Provenza iy mar"
from La Traviata. We heard among
other songs the familiar "Amarilli"
of Caccini, and the high spirited
"Chanson a boire" of Ravel.
Though we may wonder at the
programming of the "agnus Dei"
of Bizet, the effectiveness of its
presentation could not be doubted.
Mention ought to be made of "The
Donkey" of Hageman, which is a
fine. example of the type of song
that relies for its effect on a very
flashy accompaniment, an affect-
ing verse, and hardly anything in
the way of singing.
Willard Sektberg, the accompa-
nist, played two solos after inter-
mission in near-darkness, the ef-
fectiveness of which lighting and
playing was somewhat doubtful.

NTERPRETING THE NEWS:
Western, Communist
Diplomats Friendlier

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article was sent
over the Associated Press wires just two days be-
fore the death of Russian Deputy Foreign Minis-
ter Andrei Y. Vishinsky yesterday.)
By MAX HARRELSON
UNTIED NATIONS, N.Y.-Strange things are
happening at the UN these days. For the
first time in almost nine years, Western and
Communists diplomats are carrying on private
negotiations on issues before the world organi-
sation and unanimous decisions are emerging.
This does not mean there are no longer any
differences between East and West or that the
cold war is ended, but it does reflect an im-
portant change in atmosphere and attitude and
it has resulted in a sharp easing of tension here.
Where the new trend will lead or what is
behind the conciliatory gestures of the Rus-
sians, this correspondent does not pretend to
know. But the Soviet attitude here appears to
be an extension of the same policy which led
to the end of the fighting in Korea and Indo-
China.
A T ANY rate, the current session of the UN
General Assembly has the distinction of
being the first since 1946 to achieve a unani-
mous vote on anything except purely procedur-
al matters. This Assembly already has recorded
one unanimous vote and another is expected
early this week.
The two questions involved are the already-
approved plan of work for the UN Disarma-
ment Commission and President Eisenhower's
atoms-for-peace plan. The final resolutions on
both questions were arrived at in private ne-
gotiations.
For the first time in UN history, the Rus-
sians have submitted their views to the Western
delegates privately and sought to have them in-
corporated into Western resolutions. In the
past, they had always studiously refrained from
engaging in any private bargaining.

IN BOTH the disarmament discussions and
the atoms-for-peace debate, however, they
submitted informal amendments and agreed to
modifications and compromises. Although they
did not get all they asked for in either case,
they won enough concessions to satisfy them.
Even more significant than the simple fact
that the negotiations took place is that, on the
atoms-for-peace plan, the negotiators were
Chief U.S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. and
Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vi-
shinsky.
Two years ago, when Lodge first arrived here
as head of the U.S. delegation, he refused to
have his picture taken shaking hands with Vi-
shinsky and the fiery Soviet delegate spent
most of his time blasting the United States and
the West in general.
ONE DAY last week, observers noted Lodge
and Vishinsky in a private huddle on the
floor of the political committee. They chatted
earnestly, Vishinsky handed Lodge a document
and they parted laughing. This was part of the
private give-and-take that led to agreement,
but it symbolizes the new atmosphere.
Another evidence of the change is the new
tone of the speeches heard in UN debate. Vi-
shinsky, the kindly old gentleman, who thanks
Lodge for his efforts to explain a point and
who apologizes when he differs from the West
Dn some provision of a resolution.
Even on issues on which the East and West
differ sharply, the tone of the speeches is soft-
er and more gentle.
IS THIS just a brief interlude in the cold
war? There is one bit of evidence that Rus-
sia intends to pursue the new policy for a while.
They have just appointed Arkady A. Sobolev,
former assistant secretary general of the UN,
as deputy to Vishinsky here. Sobolev is on bet-
ter terms with the Western diplomats at the
UN than any other high ranking Soviet diplo-
mat.

Hissed Myth
To the Editor:
Re Mr. Theodossin's review of
On The Waterfront: It seems The
Daily movie critics are quite expert
in writing the easy sarcastic re-
views of mediocre movies, but have
difficulty in meeting the challenge
of reviewing a really excellent film.
Mr. Theodossin's comment on
the inevitability of a comparison
between Brando's Kowalski and
Brando's Terry Malloy is no ex-
cuse for doing the obvious himself.
The review was superficial and
trivial, failing entirely to suggest
the powerful over-all theme of the
movie and its superb treatment.
The things which should have
been commented on and - were
omitted in favor of obvious re-
marks, a resume of the plot and a
list of the actors, were such things
as the very strong thematic insist-
ence on the concept of the power
of the individual to make a moral
choice and to influence others by
it. This is clearly keynoted in the
priest's "crucifixion speech," in
the symbol of Joey's coat (a mod-
ern day Christ's robe), in the use
of the camera as it first focuses
on the older Malloy's hanging boy
-arms outstretched-and in the
incredible loneliness of Terry Mal-
loy, who is made no cliched hero
the instant he "turns state's evi-
dence."
All of this - and much, much
more-was not even suggested by
Mr. Theodossin's review. Instead
of giving the potential viewer some
guide to aid him in understanding
the point of the whole film, Mr.
Theodossin ably confuses us all
by suggesting we try to keep Stan-
ley Kowalski in mind. This is not
a film about the animalistic traits
of various characters portrayed by
Marlon Brando. It is not a film
about Marlon Brando; it is a film
about some guy you never heard
of who made one decision for him-
self that proved he was a little big-
ger, momentarily, than the mass.
If Mr. Theodossin is incapable of
seeing Terry Malloy, dockworker
anonymous, for being distracted
by Stanley Kowalski, then either
Brando failed, or the film failed,
or Mr. Theodossin is suffering from
acute near-sightedness.

Non-'Academic' Debate
To the Editor:
THIS IS for the benefit of those
who feel that freedom of speech
and expression is still part of the
American way of life.
The United States Naval and
Military academies have just with-
drawn their debating teams from
intercollegiate competition because
the topic is: Resolved, that the
United States should extend diplo-
matic recognition to the Commu-
nist government of China. The
Army uses as its excuse the fact
that it does not wish cadets to de-
bate on subjects which envolve is-
sues on which the national policy
has already been set. The Navy is
more blunt. They seem to feel
that any midshipman arguing the
affirmative side is sprouting the
Communist party line. One of the
writers is a member of the Univer-
sity debate team and assures Daily
readers that those on the team who
argue the affirmative side are as
loyal to their country as the cadets
who are willing to devote their
lives to its defense. Do the Army
and Navy feel that the students,
professors, cadets, and private cit-
izens who support recognition have
anything but their country's wel-
fare at heart? Any issue is not de-
batable if we must avoid discuss-
ing topics on which national policy
hnr lr'DQrl? hP~nst. c+. ehv.

Communist Manifesto will show
that many of Marx's ideas have
been supported by both major
American parties as needed re-
forms. The point to be made here
is that all issues must be argued
on their merits and not upon who
first advocated them.
The Army and Navy are depriv-
ing the cadets of participating in
the democracy for which they may
die, but in their folly they are per-
forming a service. They have
awakened us to the fact that fear
and illogical reasoning are not
confined to the civil branches of
our government. We hope that
West Point's most illustrious grad'
uate in Washington will see that
this unfortunate robbery of Ameri-
can liberty is corrected,

Reporting .. .
To the Editor:
I THINK that the article on "In-
nocent III" was the greatest
piece of reporting that has ever
been seen on God's earth !
As usual, The Daily left no stone
unturned in their crusade to bring
the news to hungry Wolverines.
God bless you and your whole
staff, as I know He will. You are
all wonderful, and your paper is
the best ever seen on God's earth.

Landlord Bigots-
To the Editor:
IT SEEMS to me that the refusal
of many Ann Arbor landlords
to accept Negro students as room-
ers, as described in recent articles
in The Daily, is shameful. These
people talk democracy but they
live bigotry. And the University,
the churches, the citizenry-all of
us-share their guilt in so far as
we accept this situation. Just now
we reprove the Southern States
because they do not want to accept
Negroes in their schools. And yet
we deny them a place to live. What
kind of democracy is this?

DREW PEARSON:
Why Milton
Won't Go
To Rio
WASHINGTON - Here is the
inside reason why Milton Eisen-
hower, brother of the President,
refused to go to South America
as a member of the American
delegation to the big Pan Amer-
ican Economic Conference which
opened in .Rio de Janeiro yester-
day.
Milton, it can be revealed, vig-
orously objects to Secretary of the
Treasury Humphrey's tightfisted
policy toward loans to Latin-Amer-
ican governments. And rather than
alibi for a shortsighted policy
which he believes imperils the
good-neighbor policy, Milton just
announced he would stay home,
He had previously disagreed
with Humphrey when the secretary
of the treasury wanted to combine
the Export-Import Bank with the
World Bank. Milton, jast returned
from a trip through Latin Amer-
ica, argued to the contrary and
won. However, Secretary Humph-
rey is the chief delegate at the
Rio Economic Conference and the
President's brother just didn't want
to be in the position of bucking-
him.
This makes the third important
change in the American delegation
to the Pan American Economic
Conference. First, Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles dropped
out, though he had previously
stated at the Caracas conference
that he would be present and that
he considered this conference one
of the most important of the year.
Second, Merwin Bohan, special
U.S. ambassador in charge of pre-
paring for the Rio conference, re-
signed. He, too, opposed the no-
government-loan policy of Secre-
tary Humphrey, argued that the
best way to stop communism in
Latin America was to help in the
economic ' development of that
area.
On top of this, Milton Eisenhow-
er dropped out. No wonder Latin-
American delegates are skeptical,
and that Chile has proposed a spe-
cial "Inter-Latin American Bank"
which would raise all its money
in Latin America with not a single
dollar from the U.S.A.
. Nothing could please the Krem-
lin more.
Co-Existence
Here is one of many reasons why
Eisenhower sticks to a "co-exis-
tence" policy with Russia, despite
pressure from Senator Knowland
and some from the Pentagon.
The American embassy has re-
ported that a major split appears
to be developing between Premier
Malenkov and Foreign Minister
Molotov.
Malenkov apparently wants to
follow a softer line in dealing with
the United States. But Molotov,
the fiery old Bolshevik, violently
disagrees, even wants to step up
the pace of the cold war.
At the October Revolution re-
ception, for instance, where Mal-
enkov talked so reasonably with
U.S. Ambassador Bohlen, Molotov
stood by gloweing and shaking
his head,' obviously burned up
about the whole business. Despite
this, Malenkov went right ahead
talking with Bohlen, gavehis per-
sonal promise that the door to the
Kremlin would always be open to
settle any incident threatening
Russian-American relations. T h e
conversation occurred just before
Eisenhower took his "turn-the-
other-cheek" attitude at the press
conference following the U.S. born-

ber incident in Hokkaido.
Egyptian Plot
The so-called assassination plot
against Premier Nasser actually
is a big phony. The whole thing
was engineered by kNasser's fol-
lowers as a means of getting rid
of President Neguib.
American agents have now
learned that 'the so-called assassin
was hired secretly and given in-
structions to make sure he missed
when he fired his revolver at Nas-
ser. He was promised he could go
free .afterward. This explains why
the assassin fired eight shots at
Nasser from a distance of only
20 feet and missed each time.
Irony is that the assassin now
probably will be shot himself be-
cause it would look too phony to
permit him to go free.
Youngest Bureaucrat
Assistant Secretary of Labor
Rocco Siciliano, aged 32, is not
only one of the youngest members
of the President's "little cabinet,"
but an untiring impresario of gov-
ernment service for other up-and-
coming young men of ability and
vision.
Siciliano is only one generation
away from the "melting pot." His
parents wereItalian immigrants,
who finally settledl in Salt Lake
City, Utah, and established a thriv-
ing restaurant business. Young
Siciliano, a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Utah and Georgetown
Law School, had a meteoric ca-
reer as a labor-relations expert
