Congressional probe of how the
nation's taxes are collected.
The closing days of the Tru-

lighted by serious tax scandals-
first revealed in this column-
which led to the resignations of
Commissioner George Schoene-
man and Counselor Charles Oli-
phant; plus the prosecution of an
earlier commissioner and assist-
ant-Joe Nunan and Dan Bolich.
These tax scandals supplied Re-
publican campaigners with some
of their potent political ammuni-
tion, and it was presumed that
when they took over internal rev-
enue, it would be run with Old
Dutch Cleanser spotlessness.
However, politics seems to have
crept back into the tax-collecting

Senator McCarthy in his home in

THE NEWS from Germany these days is that
Mr. Molotov has been making an impres-
sion with his diplomatic campaign to prevent
ratification of the London accords. He is mak-
ing his effect by saying again and again, flat-
ly and without loopholes, that if Germany is
rearmed within the Western Alliance, there
can be no negotiation for the reunification of
Germany. It would be a mistake to underesti-
mate the effectiveness of this argument. For
while there is a real answer to it, it is not
simple and easy to make plain and convincing
to popular audiences in France and Germany.
THE EFFECTIVENESS of Mr. Molotov's ar-
gufnent is that it is a great big half-truth.
We cannot afford to ignore the half of it that
is true. The truth in the argument is that the
London accords are based on the conclusion
that Germany cannot now be reunified by
four power agreement on terms which the West
and the East will both accept. The fundamen-
tal assumption of the accords is that the par-
tition of Germany is to continue for some time
to come. The accords are designed to stabilizes,
to make more secure and to keep under in-
ternational control the inherently dangerous
situation of a divided Germany.
The half-untruth in Mr. Molotov's argument
is the implication,-one may fairly call it the
pretense-that Germany could be reunified if
only the West would give up German rearm-
ament. When he implies that, Mr. Molotov is
misleading the Germans. It is nearly ten years
since the Germans were disarmed. For over
four years the West has been talking about
rearming West Germany while in fact it has
postponed ratifying the project. Four years, in
which there have been several full dress con-
ferences, have offered plenty of opportunities
for the Soviet government to propose nego-
tiable terms for German reunification. Several
times in these four years Mr. Molotov has
sounded as if he were just about to come for-
ward with terms that, whatever was thought of
them in London and in Washington, could
not be rejected in Germany.
But no offer that ha to he tarens eroiousl

R. MOLOTOV is attempting to prevent ra-
tification not by making an offer of terms
of reunification but by insisting that he will
not make such an offer if the accords are rati-
fied. The answer to his argument is that, on
the basis of years of experience, there is no
reason for thinking that he will make an offer
of unification even if the accords are rejected.
This is a hard position to make plain and
popular in the Western democracies where the
politicians like to be all things to all men, to
pretend that there are no hard choices, that
the people can have their cake and eat it too.
The decisioon to rearm Western Germany in
NATO is a decision to accept as permanent for
the life of the agreement the existing partition;
of Germany. To argue that the ratification of
Germany rearmament is going to lead soon to
a conference in which Germany will be reuni-
fied is to become vulnerable to the campaign
which Mr. Molotov is conducting. Mr. Molotov
has only to do what he is doing: to keep saying
no emphatically. The West would be less vul-
nerable to his campaign if the hard reality
of the London accords, which is that Germany
cannot now be reunited, were fully explained to
the people of Western Europe.
The dialogue with Mr. Molotov would be less
confusing if it were made plainer than it now
is what the West means and what it does not
mean by a conference after ratification. What
the West means is a conference to promote thea
co-existence of the two Germnys and the two
Europes: to lessen the tension between them,
perhaps to reduce the armed forces near the
Iro nCurtain, to increase the commercial and
cultural intercourse. It would not be a confer-
ence because no concrete terms are now known
on which a conference could negotiate seriously.
THE DAY will come when the partition of
Germany will end. But that day is not
now visible, and there are no plans for that
day and there are no indictions of the exist-
ence of any plans for such a day in Moscow,
London, Paris and Washington. The partition
of Germany, having lasted for ten years, has

Protest .. .
To the Editor:
LAST FRIDAY evening it was
my pleasure to attend a con-
cert by the University of Michi-
gan Symphony Band in Hill Audi-
torium in connection with the
Midwestern Music Conference be-
ing held on your campus. It would
be an understatement if I said the
review of that concert which ap-
peared in your Saturday edition
astounded me. Obviously written
by someone not really familiar
with band literature and trans-
criptions, it was a grossly unfair
and inaccurate report.
Dr. William D. Revelli and the
University Symphony Band have
always been one of the greatest
positive forces in the band field.
They have programmed more fine
music for concert band than any
other group in the country. The
concert Friday was both musically
and technically one of the finest
of many of theirs I have heard
throughout the years. I would cer-
tainly like to protest against such
careless reporting of what was a
wonderful concert by this out-
standing organization.

Band Concert . . .
To the Editor:
LAST FRIDAY night I had an
opportunity to hear once again
the University of Michigan Band.
I hear them every year at the
Midwestern Music Conference, and
have been either playing in them
(1938-42 also 1946) or have fol-
lowed their musical progress over
those following years. As an alum-
nus of the U of M I have been
very proud of their world-wide ac-
claim. They are truly recognized
as one of the very greatest of all
the wind ensembles.
Friday's concert was certainly
one of the finest that I have ever
heard, in every sense of the word:
balance, sensitivity, technique,
tone, rhythm,uall were present in
astounding quality. These senti-
ments were heard among everyone
that I talked to after the concert
and during the next whole day.
You can imagine the tremendous
surprise and anger that your critic
Mr. Mumma aroused by his words.
I certainly would not challenge his
right to say what he thinks. Hon-
est criticism, however painful it

might be, is the basis for improve-
ment of all the Arts as well as the
works of Science. Instead, I seri-
ously do object to his apparent
love of the sound of his own words;
to his obvious habit of writing for
the loud reaction that his words
bring, in spite of their insincerity.
Is he the type of man that should
oe allowed to write criticism for
one of the finest college papers in
America? I strongly feel, although
I must admit without any real evi-
dence beyond what I can read in
his writing, that Mr. Mumma must
have "an axe to grind" with Con-
ductor Revelli and his band.
I, and many others interested in
the improvement of all facets of
their alma mater would appreciate
'your consideration of the above
comments. If there is evidence of
bias, prejudiced thinking, perhaps
another writer could be found out

Not up to Par . . ;.
To the Editor:
gan Daily seem to range from
the vitriolic type of Mr. Theodos-
sin to the rather clumsy and point-
less attempt at criticism offered
by Master Donald Malcolm in Sun-
day's Daily.
The picture, "The Barefoot Con-
tessa," seemed to enervate Mr.
Malcolm, with respect to the car-
nal aspects of the picture. There
seemed to be a little more to the
picture than that. Maria Vargas
did not merely seek physical sat-
isfaction, but rather she sought a
consummate feeling of love, de-
rived from an:iunderstanding of
the simpler things. A desire for
love, both of mind and of body
makes Maria seek, first perfection
in her acting career, and then in
the successful, but ironic, love of
;he Count. Her "cousins" offered
her a feeling of elation, yet she
still strived for the more culmi-
native combination.
The role of the shoes seemed to
be unfathomed by Mr. M's in-
sensitive approach. The shoes are
man-made. Her life was close to
the earth. Thus, Maria takes off
her shoes to rid herself of the gags
society places upon its emotions.
Mr. Malcolm, also, did not see
the subtlety of the picture in res-
pect to the roles of the director
and the press agent. In Dawes, one
finds a rather rational person,
whose understanding of Maria
leads to a temperate interpreta-
tion of her actions. The press
agent contrasts strongly with the
individualism of Maria, by selling
his services to first one million-
aire and then another.
Though the near-sighted Mr.
Magoo was not up to par,he far-
ed better in rendering a comic
touch to the evening's entertain-
ment, when compared to the pa-
thetic offering of our nearsighted

WHAT more has the American
woman to gain? She can enter
any profession, including science,
law, medicine, and surgery, and

in war and in peace she is invalu-
able. Everyone who reads the wom-
en's magazines knows that wives
spend from 80 to 85 per cent of
all consumer dollars; that no one
in his senses underestimates the
power of a woman, and that young
women should be given a liberal
education to offset the increasing
education of young men. Neverthe-
less, the facts of life in the United
States today are not as cheerful
as they might appear on the sur-
face. Whereas twenty or so years
ago the students of our population
growth assumed that it would soon
reach its climax and start going
downhill, we have proved them to
be false prophets by producing an
astonishing number of children
year by year so that we have now
about 165 million increasingly
healthy people in the country, and
the end is not in sight. This is,
and should be, a cause for celebra-
tion by any sane and patriotic
American, though every sudden
change in human progress is bal-
anced by disturbing and unexpect-
ed factors.
