POINTED PEN

By PAT ROELOFS
Associate City Editor
THE Common Sense Party was conceived by
a group of students who wanted Student
Legislature to be a responsible body. The group
felt issues should be worked on after elections
as well as during campaigns. They were tired of
having large sounding promises turn into
nothing more than election devices abandoned
as soon as regular sessions of the Legislature
began. They decided the only method of check-
ing irresponsibility was to form a party to back
certain ideas, and candidates who believe and
will work to enact those ideas. The party will
support the candidates during elections by
campaigning for them and outlining the plat-
form to the public. After the elections, party
members will meet regularly with their repre-
sentatives oi the legislature to discuss what
measures have already been taken up by stu-
dent government and how best to work for
enaction of the party's platform.
An advantage of a party system over a non-
party system is the very coordination of ideas
into a platform, for which a group of people
who agree, are working. As is, persons running
independently for SL are campaigning on many
diverse issues, and when elected to the Legisla-
ture they are all working for different ends. In
addition, because issues are not clearly defined
under the present no-party system, personali-
ties and beauty become the highlights of an
election.
THE PLATFORM of the Common Sense Party
contains 16 points. On some of the issues in
the platform, few students would disagree. As
examples, "dead" weekend prior to final exam-
inations and extended closing hours in women's
residences are points of little differenbe of
opinion. But on these issues, which have been
discussed to death during SL campaigns in the
past, CSP feels method of action is important.
The Common Sense Party has a carefully
worked out plan of nmethodology: based on the
premise that pressure to enact the above poli-

cies is a first necessity. Too often a legislature
member will contact members of other organi-
zations or the administration and make little
headway, then give up in despair and let the
contact forget the issue was ever suggested.
"Constant pressure is the only means of final
achievement" is the guideword of CSP.
CSP further emphasizes formal contact by
the legislature with organizations and in-
tensive personal contact with influential indi-
viduals in student organizations, the faculty,
administration, alumni, Ann Arbor govern-
mental and interest groups, the State Legisla-
ture and the Board of Regents in order to
effect action and change.
Very important to remember however, is that
action be carefully planned before begun; in
the past action was often hastily initiated be-
fore possible objections had been considered,
before all steps had been planned; the result
was often only a half-completed job or no
accomplishment at all.
Common Sensers stress in their platform the
need to discover what public opinion is on
issues coming before the student governing
body: CSP hopes to conduct surveys of the
various segments and interest groups by scien-
tific methods arranged with the help of the
Survey Research Center. Having scientific
knowledge will make student government more
able to fight successfully.
THE Common Sense Party feels that if stu-
dent government becomes more responsible
as well as more aggressive and more unified,
the rest of the University community will have
to pay attention to what it is doing. It seems
18,000 students, the majority group in the
campus community, would desire a strong voice
on campus issues. Today, to say students had
a voice at all would almost be an overstate-
ment. By voting for members of the Common
Sense Party students will be taking a first step
toward more responsible, more respected gov-
ernment.

Student-Regent Understanding:
SGC Can Pave Way

JF THE Student Government Council is ap-
proved by the Regents, it will mark the
first time in the University's history that the
students have an official student government.
This alone is sufficient reason for preferring
the SGC proposal over the present Student
Legislature.
We cannot be sure that SGC will be any'
more effective than SL in putting student de-
sires into practice. This depends more on the
people within the organization than its struc-
ture. Yet, SGC can offer more effectiveness
because it should attract competent people,
being the official representative of student
opinion.
That the Regents retain final authority is
another reason why there is no guarantee that
'SGC will accomplish more than SL has been
able to do. However, it seems more likely that
SGC would accomplish more, because its deci-
sions will probably receive more attention from
the Regents. This is deduced from the fact that
the Regents would have approved SGC.
THERE IS also another reason why SGC can
promise greater effectiveness. Approval of
SGC by the Regents may very well bring about
a more cooperative attitude between the Re-
gents and the students.
So far, our efforts to have proposals approved
have often seemed trivial, and perhaps our
wish for SGC is meaningless. That the Regents
always seem to ignore our efforts is the cause
of this.
It has been said that the Regents are doing
their best as elected supervisors of the Uni-
versity, and have the best interests of the stu-
dents at heart. Without disputing this, we can
point out that the definition of "the best inter-
ests of the students" remains in the minds of
the Regents.
THEREFORE, it is very possible that every-
thing the Regents do regarding students is
done within the purpose of doing what's best
for us, and that we, at the same time, think
they have an opposite attitude. The resulting

misunderstanding follows because we sincerely
disagree on what's best for the students.
It is also caused by the fact that the Regents
give us no basis for thinking that they do, in
fact, have our interests at heart. Until now, the
Regents are to some degree responsible for any
student feeling that they are ruthless. This is
because the Regents do not usually give any
indication of how heavily studeit opinion
weighs in their decisions on what is best for us.
In fact, very often they fail to say whether
student opinion has any weight at all in their
decisions.
What we need is a compromise. We must be
willing to yield graciously to the final authority
of the Regents (for it is theirs anyway) if the
Regents are willing to demonstrate that they
do take student opinion seriously.
REGENTAL approval of SGC would most
likely be the first step in establishing such
an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect
between the Regents and the students, an
atmosphere that has not often existed.
At any rate, students must see the meaning
in an approval of SGC, and make every effort
to see that it is approved.
The Regents are reasonable men, and are no
doubt willing to demonstrate to students that
they do have our best interests at heart and
thereby clear up the misunderstanding. At the
same time, students are probably more reason-
able than they are interested in SGC. Being
reasonable, they must realize that a large and
therefore representative vote must be turned
in on the referendum if they have any desire
at all to see their own opinions have a chance
of becoming at least part of the basis for the
forming of University policy involving students.
A SMALL VOTE will indicate that students
do not know, or do not care, what is best
for themselves, and will relieve the Regents
from considering the possibility that they do.
With this in mind, every student should
make it a special point to vote. in the SGC
referendum.

DREW PEARSON:
Germany
Undercuts
U.S. Trade
WASHINGTON - U.S. bankers
have a lot more at stake in the Rio
De Janeiro economic conference
than most of them realize. So does
the American public.
This was one reason why Con-
gressman Jim Fulton of Pittsburgh
tangled with his fellow Republi-
can, Secretary of the Treasury
Humphrey, for coming to the Rio
conference with "an empty brief
case."
Congressman Fulton not only
knew Latin American temperament
regarding the Eisenhower admin-
istration's loan policy, but he also
knew that both the President's
brother Milton and U.S. Ambassa-
dor Merwin Bohan had stepped off
the U.S. delegation because they
opposed Humphrey's tight-fisted
point of view.
What U.S. bankers face in Rio
is a plan for a purely inter-Latin
American bank put forward by Ar-
turo Maschke, president of the Cen-
tral Bank of Chile. This bank would
be composed only of Latin Ameri-
can nations. The United States
would be barred. However- and
here is where U.S. bankers would
get caught in the middle - the
capital for this bank would be
drawn from Latin American de-
posits now in U.S. banks.
As of today, Latin Americans
have a total of $1,800,000,000 on
deposit in North American banks.
And under the Maschke plan, they
would withdraw this money from
U.S. banks and put it in their own
bank as collateral against develop-
ment loans to underdeveloped La-
tin American countries.
Any withdrawal of nearly two
billions from American banks, es-
pecially if done suddenly after the
Rio conference, might have a dis-
comboulating effect upon t h e
American banking system.
Meanwhile, what the American
public doesn't realize is that Ger-
man businessmen are descending
on Latin America in increasing
numbers, offering long-term credit
and cheap prices. Thus, while the
USA spends money building up
Germany, Germany is indirectly
using that money to unbuild Amer-
ican trade in Latin America.
Today, Latin America buys more
from the USA than all of Europe
and Asia combined. Ranking next
to Canada-our best customer -
come Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Vene-
zuela, all buying more than Eng-
land, France, Germany.
And while Latin delegates at Rio
learn that the USA is considering
a two- to three-billion development
fund for Asia, Secretary of the
Treasury Humphrey discusses a
prospective bank which would take
a year to organize and which would
loan Latin America $100,000,000
sometime in the future.
That's why Congressman Fulton
criticized his fellow Republican,
Secretary Humphrey, for coming
to Rio with "an empty brief case."
Republic.ans are almost holding
their breath to see whether Demo-
crats at New Orleans walk into a
trap.
What they're hoping is that the
Democrats will elect as their new
national chairman James Finne-
gan, chairman of the Philadelphia
City Council.
The Republicans haven't any-
thing against Mr. Finnegan per-
sonally, politically, or any other
way. But they do have some inter-

esting data on another James Fin-
negan. And they know that the
American public, which reads, in
a hurry, is sure to get them mixed
up.
The other Finnegan is the for-
mer collector of internal revenue
in St. Louis, who went to jail for
taking pay from people in tax
trouble. Most of the public have
now forgotten his name. But what
the Democrats don't know is that
the name James Finnegan is going
to pop into the headlines fairly soon
as a result of a federal grand jury
now meeting in Omaha which has
been trying to ascertain who origi-
nally whitewashed the Finnegan
case.
At first the St. Louis Finnegan
w a s completely exonerated by
friends inside the Treasury Depart-
ment and, based upon this white-
wash, President Truman accept-
ed his resignation. After this, how-
ever, persevering Sen. John J. Wil-
liams of Delaware brought out
such damning facts on Finnegan
that he was sent to jail.
Senator Williams has now been
demanding that the Justice Depart-
ment investigate and prosecute
those responsible for the white-
wash, and a grand jury in Omaha
has elicited some dynamite-laden
statements from Frank Lohn, for-
mer chief of tax intelligence in
Kansas City, one of the men who
probed the Finne-tn case.
All this has nothing to do with
the Philadelphia Finnegan-except

Still, Small Voice

DRAMA REVIEW

At the Cass in Detroit*...
THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH with Eddie Bracken, Anne Kimbell, Kaye
Lyder, Howard Freeman, and Edward Hunt.
THE OLD PROBLEM of how to make a worn out, tired touring
company sparkle appeared anew at Monday night's performance
of George Axelrod's The Seven Year Itch. This romantic comedy which
has received considerable acclaim since its Broadway debut in 1952,
emerged as anything but a "hit"-it was a cold, mechanical, and
very disappointing reading. Only in the final act did the cast project
any feeling of fun and humor.
Admittedly, Seven Year Itch is hardly the funniest play of all
time. It is a pleasant and diverting spoof about a typically American
husband whose typically American wife takes their typically American
boy to the beach for the summer. Hubby, left home alone with an
ulcer and a stern warning against cigarettes and intoxicants, begins
pursuing a curvacious model who lives in the upstairs apartment.
The play occurs within a single living room set. But the author
uses flashbacks, dreams, solioloquies, and even a few talking con-
sciences to provide movement and contrast with the real-life episodes.
It is chiefly these fantasy sequences that give the play humor and
hold together an otherwise simple story line.
AXELROD'S WORK is often rather cliched and very seldom original.
However, the manner in which he pokes fun at psychiatrists, pocket
books, drinking , and dozens of American institutions can be fun if
handled with spirit.
Monday night's cast had very little spirit, and, consequently,
failed to give the play the needed boost. Eddie Bracken as the husband
has an extremely arduous role. He must be on stage throughout the
entire evening. Bracken, famous for his many movie roles,, is well
equipped in the talent department, a necessary prerequisite if Seven
Year Itch is to appear worthwhile. But the many months of reading
the same lines over and over again have begun to show; and Bracken
has apparently lost any feeling for the play. He reads his lines with
perfect accuracy, but there is a terrifying kind of mechanization that
leaves the audience cold.
ANNE KIMBELL as the girl is one of those attractive females who
insists on over-acting. It is not really overacting, just a kind of
bubbling and chortliing that seems so popular with today's ingenues.
She failed to suggest that her character was anything more than a
fifty-mile-a-minute gabbing fool. The lines that deserve laughs failed
to register with Miss Kimbell's delivery.
Kaye Lyder as Bracken's wife was wooden. The only actors who
seemed to be enjoying their work were Howard Freeman as a sex-
and-violence psychiatrist and Edward Hunt as the author who writes
love scenes ("inward, outward, pulsing, throbbing, upward, downward").
Their spontaneity and ease brought most of the few laughs in a fairly
boring performance.

INTERPRETING THE NEWS:
Red Prisoners Need
'Peaceful' Freeing

Check Fascism ...
FOR THOSE who considered that
McCarthy was a dead issue,
the developments of the past few
weeks should have dispelled the il-
lusion. In that time, McCarthy
supporters held a mass rally in
Washington, launched "Ten Mil-
lion Americans Mobilized for Jus-
tice," and held another mass rally
in New York.
That wealthy and powerful
forces are behind McCarthy is in-
dicated by the roster of public sup-
porters of "Ten Million Ameri-
cans," including Rear Admiral
John C. Crommelin, Chief of Staff
of the group, and General George
E. Stratemeyer, Chairman. These
men have been long-standing ad-
vocates of the "war-now" policy of
blockading and attacking the
mainland of China-McCarthyism
in foreign affairs.
These events signify the devel-
opment of a fascist movement. Of
the "Ten Million Americans," W.
K. Kelsey, Detroit News columnist
said: "the leaders of the crusade
of the ten million are neither blind
nor innocent dupes. They know
what they want. In Italy it was
called fascism." The 45th NAACP
Convention Resolution stated:
"Under the banner of fighting
Communism, McCarthyism aims
to lead the nation to fascism."
We have seen a debate on Mc-
Carthy censure scheduled by YR
and YD at Wayne vetoed; a debate
on the admission of China to the

Carthy from the Senate, or failing
that, his censure.
Similar positive developments
here by our facluty and students
are needed to help check the omi-
nous pro-fascist trends.

T HE Letters to the Editor section
of The Daily has always been
a respectable medium through
which interested readers have
beenable to expressrtheirsconsid-

concern. For this reason I find the
loathsome abuse to which the sec-

disconcerting. Specifically, I refer
to the letter from Messrs. Fuller
and Prendergast whom, incident-
ally, I do not know. At the risk of
getting a "punch inthe snoot," I
feel compelled to clarify a situa-

some readers.
Fuller and Prendergast, in a
letter they no doubt considered

PRESIDENT Eisenhower and Secretary Dulles

The answers don't come easily. A beginning
was made at Geneva, where American and
Chinese representatives met face to face and
a strongly expressed American protest was re-
jected, as expected.
THE QUESTION of what to do next was be-

actual release is concerned. It is just possible
that Russia does not appreciate this interfer-

Russia is herself getting tougher right now,
however, with her threats about what the
Western European Union will do to peace, and
her organization of a counter-bloc.
Actually, if any release is achieved, it will
probably come through specific and secret
negotiations-which might be carried on either
through the face-to-face offices established in
Geneva or through Russia
