SYMBOL OF WHAT'-:
'Pal' ood For Lau ghs A nyway

OR THE present, at least, Joseph Raymond
McCarthy is a politically dead issue. But he
is still a member of the United States Senate.
And the "ism" which he created and fostered
remains as a shadow in the strange hinterland
of the political arena.
One wonders, indeed, if the Republican
party's half-hearted renunciation of McCarthy
was not due more to his incompetence at
practicing the technique of the "ism" he cre-
ated than to "McCarthyism" itself.
Certainly, the blundering, tactless methods
of the McCarthy personality have been re-
placed by the agile tongues and suave appear-
ances of men more receptive to the public ear
and eye. And, of all these, there is none more
adroit at out McCarthying McCarthy than Mr.
Leonard W. Hall, present Chairman of the
Republican National Committee.
IN HIS recent barrage against Walter P.
Reuther, president of the U.A.W. - C.I.O.,
Chairman Hall proved - much better than
Senator McCarthy ever could-how injuriously
careless the human tongue can be. And he
further proved that the danger lies, not so
much in the tongue itself, as in man's habit of
cloaking this babbling instrument in a subtlity
of words that say nothing and infer every-
thing.
Chairman Hall, rejecting the crudities of
Senator McCarthy, did not call Mr. Reuther a
Communist, a Pinko or an off-Red. Rather, he
contented himself by meshing together a series
of contradictory symbols into the one mean-
ingless label, "left-winger."
"Left-winger," to many people, may mean
anything from an Eisenhower Republican to a
Wallace Progressive, and might be taken to
Jnclude any person whose political beliefs trans-
cend that broad range to the left of Taft-
Republicanism and to the right of Marxist
doctrine. But, certainly, even Mr. Leonard Hall
must be aware that many others upon hearing

the term "left-winger," can see but one thing,
namely - "Red."
BUT, MORE than this, the Reuther legend
forms the basic premise why Chairman
Hill's labeling of Mr. Reuther as a "left-winger"
cannot be regarded as just another harmless
slip of the tongue. For, of all men living and
dead, Walter P. Reuther has proved himself
the most formidable enemy of Communist in-
filtration within the ranks of trade unionism.
And it is more difficult still to overlook the
incident by saying that Mr. Hall's mistake was
one of ignorance. Mr. Hall is a literate man.
A man who should be able to find the exact
word for the meaning he wishes to convey. And
he - after the McCarthy circus in Washington
- should know, better than most of us, that
guilt by inference is no less an evil than guilt
by association.
One can feel certain that Mr. Hall, as the
honorable Chairman of the Republican Na-
tional Committee will either come forth with
evidence to support his inference against Mr.
Reuther, or else will take the pains to retract
his statement.
McCarthyism, under any guise, is still Mc-
Carthyism. And no one should know that
better, at the present moment, than Walter
Reuther.

TO DAY Michigan and Michigan
State will once again battle
for the symbolic Paul Bunyan
Trophy.
It is supposed to symbolize the
rivalry between the two schools,
a rivalry which existed healthily
for countless years without any
symbol at all.
Student attitude here toward
the gigantic wooden statue has
bee none of mild disdain - we
Just didn't want it, or care about
it.
PRESENTED by Gov. G.rMen-
nen Williams in 1953 the trophy
actually seemed more to symbolize
a desire for publicity than any-
thing else. Certainly the feeling
between the two universities need-
ed no stimulating - if anything
it needed to be toned down.
But there's no complaint -
there have been a lot of laughts
at the expense of old Paul these
past two years. His disappearance
last year, though embarassing to
the University, took on all the
aspects of a Hollywood "who-dun-
nit."
Remember what happened?
News bulletins blared the news-
Paul Bunyan had been stolen! No
one knew where he disappeared to
-certainly not University offici-
als who had dutifully accepted the
legendary woodsman and stored
him in a dusty corner .
* * *
EVERYONE tried to shift the
blame as rumor placed the trophy
first at State and then here. Gov.
Williams was perturbed at the
apparent lack of interest everyone
was showing in recovering the
thing.
Then one night when Athletic

Director Herbert Crisler was out
of town the trophy reappeared.
How? No one was talking, or has
talked since.
The first year there wasn't any
trouble. MSU wanted the trophy
and they won the game. Televi--
sion cameras were a little uneasy
about filming half-time presen-
tation ceremonies because the
whole deal smacked of partisan-
ship but they flashed a quick shot
anyway.
* * *
LAST YEAR what is often jok-
ingly referred to as "William's

Jukebox Trophy" sat on the side-
lines during the game. Hardly
anyone noticed it. It didn't seem
to add much to festivities in gen-
eral.'
AND IT hardly seems to sym-
bolize much in the way of rivalry
or inter-school spirit. All things
considered it appears to be more
a political symbol, or, as we sug-
gested earlier, a symbol of pub-
licity-seeking.
It really isn't worth all the
trouble but as said, you can't
complain - it's good for laughs.

AT THE ORPHEUM:
Orwell's 'Animal Farm'
D Desires

4

4

G e o r g e Orwell's best-selling
fable or revolt is reproduced
through the method of the ani-
mated cartoon in "Animal Farm."
Farmer Jones, having fallen on
evil times, turns to drink his ani-
mals suffer badly from his neglect
and cruelty. Prodded by their pig
element, they wrench the farm
from man's control.
Under the slogan "All Animals
Are Equal", life continues at the
farm. Cajoled, lead, ordered, and
finally driven by the pigs com-
manded by Napoleon, the animals
ultimately realize that their revo-
lution has only allowed another
brutal and selfish dictator to be-
come their ruler.

TIMING THEIR SECOND re-
volt to perfection, the animals

On Campus -by Dirk Snel

overthrow the pigs during a cele-
bration banquet while the watch-
dogs snore heavily under a drip-
ping keg.
The satire of the film-it is
difficult to term this product as a
"cartoon"-clearly underlines the
appetites and desires of man, both
good -and bad.
The steadfastness and loyalty of
the great workhorse is repaid by
the pigs as he is hustled off alive
to the glue factory. The promise of
equality made by Napoleon is
broken early when he sells all the
hens' eggs to acquire honey and
nectar for himself.
The film ends on the eternal
question mark: What kind of a
leader will the next one be? Dic-
tator, or savior.
* * *
ORWELL, OR LOUIS de Roche-
mont the producer, seems to say
that corruption will occur inevit-
able with the assumption of power.
Certainly, original revolt is based
upon the desire of the people in-
volved to free themselves from real
or imagined wrongs. The jealous
manipulation of power begins nat-
urally when the few reach the con-
clusion that everyone is equal,
but ". . . some are more equal
than others."
"Animal Farm" is a cleverly
executed philosophically realistic
probing of the question of the nat-
ural corruption of power. The par-
ody of the theme on Communism
is distinct and might help explain
the reasons behind the new
"peace" offensive.
