CAMPAIGNING procedures for the last all-
campus elections left much to be desired.
Other than printing hundreds of posters, blot-
ters and matchcovers, candidates did little to
make their qualifications or their platforms
known to the students. The campaigners who
did visit dormitories, fraternities and sororities
generally chose the awkward time during meals
when the students were more interested in
eating than listening to platform speeches.
Those who chose other times, met with the
difficulty of assembling enough listeners to
make their speeches effective.
The myriads of posters which adorned every
and any available bare space on campus tend-
ed to confuse students rather than enlighten
them. Posters with names printed in bold
print designed to catch the students' eyes lost
their effectiveness when so many were gather-
ed together that they blotted out the wall on
which they were posted. After a while, stu-
dents became oblivious to the bold type.
IN ADDITION to there being entirely too
many posters scattered around campus,
they were assembled in such a way that if a
student did take the time to look at them, he
would become even more confused than ever.
SGC posters were mixed with J-Hop posters,
class officer posters, publication board posters,
Union vice-president posters and athletic board
posters. It would almost take a genius' mind
to keep all the various names which appear on
these posters in the proper category.
No wonder only 6,070 students out of 18,000
took the trouble to vote last week. Those fail-
ing to vote probably thought, "Why vote when
I don't know anything about the candidates."

ONE SUGGESTION for bettering the cam-
paigning procedures might be to either
limit or cut out entirely the number of posters
which are put up. bi-annually. The number of
posters one puts up should not be a criterion
for being elected to an important office. If the
posters are merely limited, there should be a
central location for specific posters. For exam-
ple, all of the SGC posters would be posted
together, etc.
It would be possible to cut down the number
of campaigners and thus alleviate confusion
by having the J-Hop committee appointed
rather than elected. Since there are no issues
involved in the obtainment of these positions,
it seems a waste of time, money and effort to
vigorously campaign for these posts.
DINNER TIME campaigning should be cut
out all together. One day could be set up
as a speech campaign day where all the can-
didates would assemble in Hill Auditorium and
present their platforms or even hold informal
debates. The Daily Elections Supplement is a
must for those students who are either too tied
up with homework or don't want to take the
time to attend a meeting such as this. -In
this supplement, platforms and qualifications
of the various candidates would be outlined for
the prospective voters.
If the campaigning procedures for future
all-campus elections were changed (any change
would be for the better), I'm sure that the
University would never again see sudh a
pathetically unsubstantial vote.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

There's No Place Like Holmes',
Twenty-three Faithful Agree

THE mysterious convergence of twenty-three
secretive men on the lower vaults of a
Detroit furniture warehouse this St. Patrick's
Day eve past signalled a most significant oc-
casion in the history of one of the midwest's
most highly restricted societies. This scarce
amount of data will undoubtedly have special
significance for the perceptive ready of the
Sacred Writings (the fifty-six accepted short
stories and the four novels) who will immed-
iately deduce a meeting of the Amateur Men-
dicant Society,
And so it was that the Mendicants con-
vened for the first time in nine years amidst
the veritable surroundings ascribed to them
by Doctor John H. Watson in "The Adven-
ture of the Five Orange Pips." This group of
distinguished Sherlockian scholars constitutes
the membership of the Detroit scion of the
legendary Baker Street Irregulars of New York,
and shares with the parent organization a
profound respect for the Great Detective and
an indefatigable devotion to the critical study
and glorification of Holmes.
FOLLOWING AN excellent dinner, downed in
an atmosphere thick with spontaneously
proposed textual challenges and Canonical
conundrums, a magnificient program evolved
in an appropriately irregular manner. First, the
Canonical Toasts were proposed: to Watson's
second wife, to Colonel Moran ("the second
most dangerous man in London"), to the world's
most celebrated landlady, Mrs. Hudson, and,
of course, the final salute to "the woman."
A large portion of the middle part of the

meeting was given to characteristically heated
argument on proposed solutions to the notor.
ious theft of the Walt Whitman diary-a dis-
cussion which ensued when the facts of that
problem were thrown out to the group. Among
the solutions offered by certain members who
had by questionable methods ingeniously de-
duced the identity of the culprit, were some of
merely scandalous nature; others were singu-
larly heinous. At any rate, the actual theif was
surely named at some time during the meet-
ing! (Be prepared for startling developments
regarding a certain MD in Wayne County.)
THE PROGRAM was climaxed by the guest
of the evening, Mr. James Montgomery, a
distinguished Sherlockian and founder of The
Sons of the Copper Beeches of Philadelphia,
who elevated the reunion to the realm of "the
years ever after" with his beautiful renditions
of the ballads associated with and inspired by
the Sacred Writings,
As the nostalgic effect of the words of "On
the Road to Baker Street" settled over the
gathering, and as the rich tenor tones vibrated
in the warehouse vault, a remarkable illusion
was created. Outside, on Woodward Avenue,
the whirr and clack of the passing streetcar
seemed to fade away and in its place there
came to the ears of the Mendicants the magic
clap and clatter of a hanson cab rattling over
the cobblestones of threescore years ago. The
members glanced at one another, spellbound,
with the secret question in their eyes: "Who
here could step beyond the door and view the
world outside, and not turn back with this re-
port: 'Gentlemen, it is 1895!',
-Donald A. Yates

Egyptian Policy . .
To the Editor:
O N NOVEMBER 16, 1954, the
official broadcasting station of
Egypt, "Saut El-Arab (The Voice
of the Arab), made the following
statement: "Egypt sees Israel as
a cancer endangering the Arab
people. Egypt is the physician who
can uproot this cancer. Egypt does
not forget that it is her obliga-
tion to take revenge and she is
mobilizing all her forces in antici-
pation of the hoped for day."
On December 27, 1954, Saleh
Salem, Egypt's Minister of Nation-
al Guidance, stated: "Egypt's pol-
icy has not ceased to rest on the
principle of no peace with Israel,
in any form or at any time. Egypt
will not make peace with Israel
even if Israel were to implement
the UN resolutions on Palestine."
The above official policy declar-
tions reflect the general attitude
of Arab leaders toward Israel in
the seven years since the estab-
lishment of the new Republic. It
is a policy which refuses to accept
the reality of Israel, and is blat-
antly bent on its destruction. This
is the background against which
the numerous border incidents
have to be viewed. Israel has re-
peatedly offered to sign a peace
treaty with the Arabs, but the lat-
ter refuse to even commence ne-
gotiations toward a permanent
peace.
In view of the above it becomes
extremely difficult to understand
the Arab protestations which have
appeared in The Daily in recent
weeks. If the Arabs really want
peace, let them sit down with Is-
rael and work out a fair peace
treaty. However, if they insist that
they are still in a state of war.with
Israel, they have to understand
that war involves losses on both
sides. The Arab governments will
have to bear full responsibility for
their policies.

F or Action .. .
To the"Editor:
SGC MUST overcome student
apathy! How many times has
that theme been repeated in The
Daily in the last month? Close to
three times a week I would sus-
pect. And how many times has an
editorial offered one good sug-
gestion as to how to do this? Not
often.
It strikes me that this sort of
destructive, pessimistic attitude
on the part of the Daily is as
much a cause as an effect of gen-
eral student apathy. The more
The Daily reiterates these themes
of student apathy and pessimism
about SGC the more these atti-
tudes tend to prevail.
If The Daily wishes to improve
the student attitude toward SGC,
it must start acting in a more
constructive fashion: find some
issues if they must be found; run
some good candidates if there are
any; and most important, start
talking about SGC as if it has
some prestige and potential. Only
if leading student is optimistic
about student government, will the
campus as a whole respect the
government.
And as to apathy, I for one have
confidence that SGC can provide
a good student government. I won-
der if there are not many others
who feel the same way?

One Gesture ...
To the Editor:
AS MIGHT be expected, the pre-
sent Israeli debate in The
Daily finds letters written by Zi-
onist protagonists defending their
group as perfection personified
while Arab replies regard their
cause as the only way to save the
world from the international Zi-
onist conspiracy.
Debates in The Daily concern-.
ing the East-West struggle fol-
low the same pattern. Patriotic
American students seem to prefer
death to life under Communism
while the Soviet apologists blame
all the world's trouble on the capi-
talist conspirators.
The above are only two exam-
ples of a university contagious
self righteousness. Gon e i s
religious evaluation: that only God
is perfect (and He only by defini-
tion), that man is a sinner and all
his ideals are rationalizations for
self-interest, and that daily self-
criticism and repentence remain
his only hope.
Today, we are so preoccupied
with saving the world through
our ideals (even though we may
have to kill everyone to accom-
plish our goal) that we fail to re-
Cognize that the only person we
can ever hope to save is ourself
and even that goal is perhaps be-
yond our grasp. True, we can and
must love our friends; honor our
parents, and sympathize with
wretched humanity, but, in fact,
these can only be superficial ges-
tures. Life is so intensely personal
that we are all we have.

DREW PEARSON:
Yalta
Record
Leaked
WASHINGTON-The full back-
stage story of how and why
the State Department slapped the
grand old man of England in the
face by publishing the Yalta Con-
ference papers can now be told.
Friends of Churchill say it almost
broke his heart.
The State Department, as noted
In this column on Sept. 25, 1954,
had been working on the Yalta
papers for some time, thanks t a
special $112,000 appropriation
passed at the behest of Republican
leaders Knowland of California
and Bridges of New Hampshire
who wanted them made public be-
fore the November election
When the documents were sent
to London for Churchill's approv-
al, however, Foreign Minister An-
thony Eden cabled John Foster
Dulles shortly before the Bangkok
Conference that "on Mr. Church-
ill's suggestion" he was asking that
the Yalta records not be publish-
ed.
Then Eden added this post-
script: "I would like to confer with
You personally on this when I see
you in Bangkok."
At Bangkok, Eden explained
that Churchill, now in the twi-
light of his 80 years, looked ack
at World War II as the crowning
achievement of his long and illus-
trious career. And the records of
Yalta, Eden explained, showed up
some of Churchill's errors, also
showed that Eden had tried to rec-
tify these errors.
Furthermore, the Yalta papers
contradicted some of the historic
decisions for which Churchill took
credit in his memoirs.
Why, therefore, break an old
man's heart, Eden told the Secre-
tary of State,'
DULLES AGREED. He remarked
to State Department collea-
gues later that Eden had been so
cooperative in risking his political
neck by supporting the U.S.A. re
Formosa that he couldn't deny
this favor.
When Dulles returned to Wash-
ington he conveyed this general
idea to Republican Senators and,
though they still maintained the
documents should be released, they
prepared privately to accept the
decision.
It was at this point that Carl
McCardle, Assistant Secretary of
State for the Press, and Dulles's
personal public relations man,
planted a copy of the Yalta docu-
ments with the New York Times.
The excuse now given in the State
Department is that the documents
were bound to leak to right-wing
Senators, perhaps to McCarthy.
An hour after the New York
Times plant became known, Sena-
tors Bridges and Knowland lunch-
ed with Dulles, told him of the
plant. He replied that he was
"aghast."
Other State Department offi-
cials say, however, that he knew of
McCardle's action and that Mc-
Cardle never does anything with-
out the knowledge of the Secre-
tary of State.
At any rate, here is what the
Yalta record did to the Prime
Minister of England.
N HIS memoirs, Churchill claim-
ed he had nothing to do with
the concessions given to Stlin to
get Russia into the war against
Japan. This, he said, was an Am-
erican decision.
The Yalta record shows, how-
ever, that it was Eden who vigor-
ously opposed concessions to Rus-
sia. A summary of the British-

American conference at Malta,
just before the Yalta parley, has
this to say about Eden and Rus-
sian concessions:
"In his (Eden's) view, if the
Russians decided to enter the war
against Japan they would take the
decision because they considered
it in their interests that the Japa-
nese war should not be success-
fully finished by the U.S. and
Great Britain alone, There was
therefore no need for us to offer
a high price for their participa-
tion, and if we were prepared to
agree to their territorial demands
in the Far East we should see to
it that we obtained a good return
in iespect of the points on which
we required concessions from
them."
ON TWO other vitally important
points, the British Prime Min-
ister is shown up in a bad light:
the dismemberment of Germany
and the organization of the United
Nations.
In his memoirs, Churchill has
always taken credit for killing the
dismemberment of Germant. How-
ever, the Yalta records show it was
Anthony Eden. What Eden did was
to shunt the question of dismem-
bering Germany to a council of
foreign ministers to be held after
the Yalta conference, thereby giv-
ing time for tempers to cool.
Churchill also threw his weight
in favor of the big powers and
against the little nations in set-
ting up the framework of the

ART REVIEW

i ' i r rr i s rrr rrr

To the Editor;

As many of you already know, a rather
unique exhibition is being offered this
month at the Museum of Art. I am sure we are
all familiar with the paintings of George
Braque but few of us probably are aware that
this artist has a considerable corpus of graphic
works to his credit. Perhaps this lack of aware-
ness on our part is due to the fact that the
Braque's great interest in graphic media is a

comparatively recent one. It is within the last
decade that this interest revealed itself in the.
production of a number of outstanding prints.
At any rate, the Museum of Art. offers a very
handsome exhibition of Braque's graphic works
in its west gallery.
The note to this exhibition suggests that
most popular with the majority will be Braque's
colored lithographs. My personal reaction finds
me in complete agreement with the evaluation.
It is true that etching and drypoint tech-
niques have been explored by Braque. The
exhibition is inclusive enough so that almost
the entire career of the artist is covered, in-
cluding one of his first etchings as well as an
excellent example from the analytical cubist
phase of his work.
IT SHOULD be noted, by the way, that not
only was the term cubism first used in ref-
erence to some landscapes painted by Braque
around 1908, but that most critics credit the
artist as at least "co-inventor" of the style
that we know today as cubism.
Braque's early work is then of both aesthetic
and historic in'terest. However, for full reali-
zation of a medium, as well as for arresting
designs, Braque's latest work with colored lith-
ography is truly exciting. The clear, bold hues,
applied broadly and with a directness that,
communicates the lithic qualities of the tech-
nique, evoke a solid structure, as enduring in
effect as stone itself. In some works a strong,
black line weaves out the central theme but
in all the lithography and interaction of the
white plane of the paper with a series of col-

I WONDER if some University of
Michigan students ever think of
how much ill feeling they create
among the townspeople, with their
thoughtlessness and carelessness?
We go to the movies, at a high
admission price, and students jeer,
boo, hiss, and make odious com-
nents and noises to such an ex-
tent that they spoil the show for
all. Either we leave early, or miss
a lot of the point of the plot.
Bicycles are spread out over
walks so that many times walking
is impossible. If you are unfortu-
nate enough to be walking when
a rider goes by, you are apt to be
bumped or run off into the mud.
Riding in the street on bikes is
an equal hazard to the drivers, stu-
dents seem to take joy in riding
close enough to your car to scrape
off paint.
The point is, if you do not like
a show, LEAVE. Don't spoil it for
others who may not have the intel-
lect to know that it is a poor show
or not up to the mental levels of
the U of M students.
If you must ride or park a bike
on the sidewalk, or in the street,
be considerate of those who must
use the walk for walking or who
don't care to have their hair stand-
ing on end over the narrow miss of
a student riding too close on the
street.
A degree from a university is a
wonderful thing. More important
than a degree to the majority of all
the people, however, is respect and
