Berlin Philharmonic Provides
Music, Not Propaganda

EVER SINCE Conductor Wilhelm Fiurtwaeng-
ler died Nov. 30, the Berlin Philharmonic
has been the victim of misfortune.
Upon Furtwaengler's death, Henry Reich-
hold, a Detroit music patron, withdrew his $50,-
000 support. Reichhold contributed his money
with the agreement that Furtwaengler would
conduct. For a time, the German government
feared the cancellation of the Orchestra's Am-
erican tour. The government was then able to
raise the necessary funds to match Reichhold's
The job of engaging another conductor was
concluded with signing Herbert von Karajan,
illustrious Viennese conductor.
AS IF THESE troubles were not enough, a
month before the Orchestra was scheduled
to arrive in New York, musicians' unions in
New York began to get hot under the collar
and ask for a boycott of 'the Philharmonic's
performances in Carnegie Hall.
On campus, the Labor Youth League and the
Student Zionist Foundation have also urged a
boycot of the Berlin Philharmonic's scheduled
concert in Hill Auditorium March 15.
All these protests are based on the fact that
von Karajan, the manager, Gerhart von West-
erman and sone orchestra members are ex-
members of the Nazi party.
GRANTED THAT the Nazi party was instru-
mental in killing off millions of people dur-
ing the Second World War. But, now the war
is over. Although we are not expected to forget
the brutal massacres, we are at least expected
to realize the necessity of peaceable relations
with the German Government.
As a University professor so aptly put, it

"We want the Germans to carry guns for us
and we don't want to hear their music. It
just doesn't follow."
Interviewed in Berlin, von Westerman said
that "we are going to try to prove that music
has nothing to do with politics." Indeed it
doesn't. True, in time of war, music of an axis
nation is curtailed due to public irritation.
NOW THAT a state of peace reigns between
the United States and Germany, it is our
duty to continue this peace by encouraging
the exchange of culture between nations, as the
Berlin Philharmonic is trying to do.
Upon his arrival Feb. 24 in New York, von
Karajan said "I occupy myself with music and
have nothing to say about politics."
If these various groups protesting the Phil-
harmonic's appearance look closely at their
arguments, they can see that they are ground-
Ex-Nazis, furthermore those who had noth-
ing to do with party politics, have no con-
nection with propaganda. German propaganda,
if it could be called that, is also spread every
time an orchestra plays a selection of Beet-
hoven or Brahms. It is spread every time a per-
son eats a frankfurter. It is spread every time
a student buys a book of Goethe's for an Eng-
lish class.
BUT THIS is not propaganda and neither
is the Berlin Philharmonic's tour. It is the
efforts of a musical group to play music -
nothing more.
Not only is the boycott a slap in the face
'of our foreign policy, but it is a foolish act by
those who fail to differentiate between music
and war.

Associated Press News Analyst
It's a strange bit of business, this belated
word through Premier U Nu of Burma that
Red China would like to have "informal" talks
with the United States about releasing 13 con-
victed Americans and easing international ten-
For one thing, it comes weeks after U Nu's
return from a visit to Peiping, during which
period he made.no mention of the matter to
the United States but did let it seep out un-
officially, so that his announcement Monday
by no means represented first publication.
Reporters in Rangoon got the impression
that the idea was U Nu's own, presumably
presented to the Peiping regime during his
visit there. It's a guess, since the Reds have
taken no initiative on their own, that its re-
ception on their part was primarily passive
rather than active approval.
The idea fits their general tactics, however.
They got quite a propaganda lift from the
visit of the secretary general of the UN an
organization which bars them and brands
them as aggressors. They would get a similar
lift out of emissaries from the United States,
the powerful chief agent of their international

First State Department reaction-in the ab-
sence of any word from Secretary Dulles since
U Nu took the matter up with him-was that
the United States should not bite.
For the time being, the United States is
standing on her original position that the
fliers were representing the United Nations
when captured, that their detention is illegal,
and that it is up to the UN to free them.
The realities of the situation, however, are
that the United States has obtained the re-
lease of few hostages from behind the Iron
Curtain except on a barter basis. The trouble
in this case is that she has little if anything
to offer outside of direct appeasement by
knuckling under to impossible demands, such
as the scuttling of the Chinese Nationalist re-
gime or a- switch on UN membership for
There is recognition in Washington, too,
that while it is proper for the UN activities to
continue, the time for release of the fliers is
not actually ripe. The Reds, be they European
or Chinese, never turn loose on such an issue
until they have squeezed the last drop of
propaganda benefit from it. Also, they nat-
urally want time to try to get from at
least one of the prisoners a reaction such as
that obtained from two other Americans, just
released, who came home spouting the Com.
munist line.


Worm Turns...
To the Editor:
MUCH HAS been written about
the poor food in the dormi-
tories. Most of it has been justi-
fied, but never have things been
so bad as this evening. The dorm
food reached a new low at din-
ner in Jordan Hall when. a worm
was found in the spinach.
This was no tiny worm which
could have been overlooked in the
cleaning. It was at least an inch
long and a quarter of an inch
in diameter. Comical as this may
sound, it isn't so funny when it's
lying on your plate.
Many of the inadequacies of
dorm food may be excused by the
quantity of food prepared or by
the expense. However, poor clean-
ing of food is inexcusable.
We've taken beef-birds, porcu-
pine meatballs, poppy-seed nood-
les, and French fried parsnips.
But worms in the spinach . . . We
protest ! !

To the Editor:
THEFACT that some of the
musicians are ex-Nazi party
members seems to us to be ridicu-
lously irrelevant." This statement
is taken from a letter to The Daily
on Feb. 24, by which the authors
attempt to prove that the protest
against the appearance of the Ber-
lin Philharmonic in Carnegie Hall
was "irresponsible, insulting, and
demonstrant of little artistic spir-
We have invited this orchestra
to appear at our University on
March 15. The manager of the or-
chestra, Gerhart von Westerman,
and its conductor, Herbert von
Karajan, were members of the
Nazi Party. In the abovementioned
letter to The Daily, our authors
state that: "It is a known fact
that everybody holding any posi-
tion whatsoever had to be a party
member in order to retain that po-
sition." Wedonot know whether
either of these two individuals
"personally" participated in the
slaughter of many millions of
Jews. But we do know that "in
order to retain their positions," or
whatever the rationale or rational-
ization might be, they identified
themselves with a movement that
was carrying on a program of
systematic extermination of hu-
man beings. I would think that
personal identification c a r r i e s
with it personal responsibility for
the actions of the - group with
which one identifies. In answer to
those who might feel we are con-
demning these men-and make no
mistake, we are condemning them
-on the flimsy basis of "guilt by
association," let us remember that
these men were members of the
Nazi Party, and furthermore, that
they were members at the time
that the atrocities were commit-
ted, and did not then disavow their
Von Westerman states that "we
must prove that music has nothing
to do with politics," and, perhaps
you who are reading this letter are
of the same opinion. But is this a
question of "politics"? You, who
will be sitting in the audience, on
the night of March 15, will be lis-
tening to an orchestra, whose con-
ductor, manager, and some of
whose members, were part of a
movement that engaged in whole-
sale slaughter. I imagine that some
of you might find it difficult to
forget this as you listen to the mu-
Forgive us then, both you and
I, for our lack of artistic spirit.

(1) William E. Ringel, former
Chief of the Security Section of
Counter Intelligence in Austria,
testified: "Karajan (the conduct-
or) was an Austrian who went to
Germany in 1932 and never gave
'up his Austrian citizenship. Yet
he did join the, Nazi Party. He
,Joined the Party when he was un-
der no compulsion to do so . .'
(NYT, 1-5-47).
Regarding von Westerman, or-
chestra manager, he too was a
prominent nazi, Deputy Director
of the Munich Radio, which
spread racism through Germany.
He now manages the orchestra
which gave concerts for Hitler,
expelled its Jewish members, and
boycotted great music written by
Jewish composers.
At present the German govern-
ment is sending representatives to
various countries in order to cre-
ate good will for the forces which
are bent on reviving the German
war machine.
Yes, let us be consistent. No
nazis carrying guns for us; no
nazis in our concert halls. No wel-
come to Germans who have not
renounced nazism and militarism.
(2) The circumstances in this
case indicate that music and poli-
tics are very much mixed in to-
gether. The music of Bach, Beet-
hoven and Brahms is an expres-
sion of human values which have
nothing in common with nazi
.values. Music does n'ot exist apart
from the people who make it and
the people who listen to it. It is
a fact that in Auschwitz concen-
tration camp, an orchestra played
in order to drown out the cries of
victims on their way to extermi-
nation. Let us not now permit the
Berlin" Philharmonic to drown out
the cries of people all over the
world against the revival of the

To the Editor:
ALTHOUGH the policies of the
Common Sense Party are as
yet undisclosed, the group's name
disconcerts me.
"Common sense" is actually a
plebeian form of anti-intellectual-
ism characterized by an imposition
of broad generalizations on very
specific problems and an appeal to
mass conformity. Its consequences
refute wliat its name suggests.
Ideas which are common are not
very sensible and ideas which are
sensible are not very common.
Fortunately for SGC, the party's
name may not wheedle its mem-
bers. The Common Sense Party
has a bold and imaginative lead-

To the Editor:
ADMITTEDLY Mr. Hamilton's
lectures sometimes become a
little puzzling, concerning, as they
do, problems which even some
Michigan students have as yet
been unable to fathom. Surely,
however, The Daily, in attempting
to report on some of the more
worthwhile happenings on this
campus, could give us a reporter
who will listen to th'ese lectures.
Or should this requirement pre-
sently be fulfilled, one who is cap-
able of an intelligent understand-
ing of even a fraction of the
thoughts of our visiting lecturer.
This University presents great
opportunities to those whose in-
terests in learning may at times

WASHINGTON - It isn't often
that a newly elected Senator
has a chance to spike the White
House on a judicial appointment
just after he takes office, but that
is the position in which Senator
Dick Neuberger of Oregon, Demo-
crat, finds himself as a result of
an automobile incident near the
Oregon coast.
U.S. District Judge William East,
whom Eisenhower has just nomi-
nated, figured in this incident. In
fact, a total of three judges were
held briefly under suspicion of
drunken driving after attending
an all-day judicial meeting at Coos
Bay, Ore., on Jan. 23.
Driving home afterwards, their
car brushed that of Wayne War-
ner, a Eugene, Ore., car salesman,
who reported to the Chief of P-
lice in near-by Reedsport that
three judges were drunk. Warner
did not know, however, that he
was turning in a newly designated
Federal Judge, who was driving
the car at the time of the incident,
together with Judges Frank B.
Reed and Chester Anderson, Ore-
gon county judges.
The state police immediately
put out a call for a "possible 31"
which is the code number for
drunken driving.
When apprehended, U.S. Judge
East had relinquished the wheel
to Judge Reed, and Judge Ander-
son was fast asleep in the back
seat. Judge Reed was submitted to
the ignominy of an on-the-spot
inebriation test, after which the
state policeman reported that on
the basis of this test he couldn't
"conscientiously" arrest him for
drunken driving.
However, the patrolman did not
permit the three judges to drive
their car back to the police sta-
tion. He made them park their
car on the side of the road, in it-
self suspicious, and drove them
back himself.
It developed later that the three
judges were, to quote one police-
man, "abusive as hell." Or, as the
police chief put it, they seemed to
resent being brought to a "small
police station." Finally, after be-
ing held about an hour, they were
What makes this interesting po-
litically is the fact that Senator
Neuberger had already given his
OK on the appointment of Judge
East. Senators enjoy a unique po-
sition when it comes to judicial
appointments, in that one senator
can usually block a judge's con-
Following the traffic incident,
Senator Neuberger asked the FBI
for a full report. Says Neuberger:
"I would like to know whether the
new appointee is going to be as
sober as a judge."
Saintly Cabinet Members

es, White House aide Max Rabb
described the saintly qualities of
Ike's cabinet officers the other day
to a seminar of clergymen.
Afterward, the reverend gentle-
men were invited to submit ques-

stopped Rabb was a scribbled note,
asking: "Do you have a special

Charges Backfire on GOP
IT HAS been kept secret all these
years, but Senator McCarthy's
1950 charges against the State
Department did not reflect upon
hs intended victim, then Secre-
tary of State Acheson, so much as
the darling of the Republicans-

former Secretary of State Byrnes.
Long-suppressed figures show
that Byrnes appointed 57 of the 73
State Department employees on
McCarthy's "subversive" list. Ache-
son appointed only four, includ-
ing the re-appointment of Philip
Jessup who was first hired by GOP
Secretary of State Charles Evans
Hughes in 1924.
McCarthy's actual list contain-
ed 81 names, but one was a dupli-
cation and seven never worked for
the State Department at all. Ano-
ther 32 were ex-employees, who
weren't working for the State De-
partment at the time of McCar-
thy's charges.
This left 41 of the original 81
alleged "Communists" on the pay-
roll in 1950. Of these, not a single
one has ever been proved to be a
Communist. Twowere removed as
"security risks," which could mean
they were drunks, blabbermouths
or otherwise undesirable. Another
three resigned while under "secur-
ity" investigation. Ten of Joe's
suspects still work for the State
Department today. The remainder
resigned, retired, died or trans-
ferred to other agencies-their
loyalty records clean.
In order not to embarrass Byrn-
es, who bolted to the Republicans
in 1952, McCarthy withheld the
fact that most of his alleged
"communists" were hired by
Byrnes. Two were hired by Hughes
back in 1924, and two others got
their jobs from GOP secretaries
