AT LYDIA MENDELSSOHN:
Life Nothing To Worry
About, Says 'Angels'
IFE IS nothing to worry about, says the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre's
current production, and in an evening of light comedy it halfway
convinces the audience.
The dominant impression of "My Three Angels" is good clean fun
-a few murders, a couple of side romances, a few fogeries-and all's
well that ends well.
Despite a few tender moments when our hero-convicts turn a
shade sentimental, there is nothing particularly profound in this play.
No play where two French gentlemen die of snake bites from an

ONLY A few days ago another college besides
Michigan State was being considered to
represent the state of Michigan in a season-
ending bowl game.
Little Hillsdale College needed only a strong
show of support from fans through the writing
of letters to the Tangerine Bowl committee in
Orlando, Florida to receive an invitation to that

just as much to the 600 students of Hillsdale
as a Rose Bowl invitation means to one of the
large Big Ten schools. The fans did their share

Northern representative Juniata College of
Pennsylvania, which had, like Hillsdale, just
completed a fine undefeated season. The reason
was not that Juniata fans were more vociferous.

It was because Hillsdale had voluntarily with-

"We wouldn't go if four of our men weren't
allowed to play," coach Frank Waters explained
in a radio interview. The bowl committee had
made acceptance of Hillsdale dependent on the
barring of that school's Negro players from the
The past football season has produced much
ill-feeling among Big Ten teams in their battle
for the Rose Bowl bid. Many fans have lost
perspective to the point that victory and bowl
bids have been the only way to glory, even at
the expense of lower standards of fair play.
Glory has come to'Hillsdale without its going
to a bowl. It has shown the "proper spirit,"
following our President, Dr. Hatcher's, advice
recently given at the Michigan "football bust"
in Detroit. Hillsdale can be proud that it has
rejected "football madness" and has placed
the sport in the "proper setting in the college
and American community."

AL'THOUGH words like moderate, construc-
tive, non-partisan are hard to define, it
does not follow that they do not mean some-
thing important. There is in fact every indi-'
cation that these adjectives express qualities
which a preponderant majority are looking for
in the next president. We need not boggle too
much over the definitions. There are lots of
things in this world which are hard to define
in the abstract and yet are obvious enough in
Take, for example, an egg. There is hardly
an egg-eater in the country who could tell a.
press conference what a good egg is. But it
is no problem at all to recognize a bad egg. It
is just about as easy to recognize an immod-
erate, destructive, and partisan politician.
If, as we all hope, there is to be honest, serious
and public-spirited discussion of foreign af-
fairs, there is only one way to go about getting
it. That is to see to it that each party nomi-
nates the kind of man who does not and who
will not stoop to extremism, violence, and'
If either of the candidates is the kind of

DURING the months to come the country, re-
gardless of the campaign, will be hearing
a great deal about foreign affairs. That is be-
cause a re-appraisal, looking to a revision and
a reinforcement in several sectors of our for-
eign policy, has become necessary. Our basic
commitments to the United Nations, to our
allies in NATO, to our neighbors, are not in
But there is little doubt that we shall have
to re-examine and to debate such matters as
our German policy, which is perilously near
being at a dead end, and certain aspects of our
containment policy in the Middle East and
The overall characteristic of the situation IA
that, as of now, there is no clear issue on
which Americans are divided and can take
their stand and argue their side of the case.
The old bi-partisanship consisted of ; coalition
of Republicans and Democrats who were for
talk. We shall not avoid that kind of talk by
exhorting one another to be constructive. The
bottom fact of the matter is that neither party
and none of the candidates now has the answer
to the questions that need to be answered. They
are all seeking, or ought to be seeking, an-
swers that have not yet been found.
The character of the campaign on foreign
affairs will in the main be determined by the
way the party leaders approach the search for
these policies that have not yet been found.
The primary responsibility is with the Adminis-
thation, with the party in power.
If they choose to stand pat, as Mr. Dulles
seemed to be doing this week, they will pre-
cipitate a severe Democratic assault on the
record of the results. Our position abroad has
in fact deteriorated. It is easy to prove it.
It is known to every disinterested observer.
Mr. Dulles will be making the mistake of his
life if he stands pat on his policies and the
The alternative is for the Republicans to'
take the lead in recognizing that the world
situation has changed and is changing, and
that United States policies must be adapted
to these new developments. This is not only
a sound approach, it is the best political ap-
proach. For if the Republicans stand pat, the
Democrats have only to criticize. If the Re-
publicans re-appraise, review, and prepare to
revise, the Democrats have to be "construc-
tive," have, that is to say to propose answers
to the unanswered questions.
ON the Democratic side, the question is also
whether they choose to stand pat or wheth-
er they put themselves in the position of look-
ing honestly for the answers to the new de-
velopments. Standing pat for the Democrats
means of course standing pat on the Truman
record and pretending that everything was
going splendidly until the Republicans came
in. In my view, the acid test of whether a
Democrat is being unpartisan and "con-
structive" is whether he admits that at least
some of our worst problems today originated
in mistakes made by the Democrats.
I refer, for example, to the premature at-
tempt to re-arm Germany in 1950 which has
ruined the promising movement towards a
European community, to the irreparable mis-

FOR THE last two weeks or so,
the nation has been deluged
by countless All-American teams.
Just about every magazine picks
a squad; the only trouble is they
pick different players.
Every year at this time, also,
articles appear (in publications
which do not sponsor these "dream
teams") denouncing the selection
of the All-America squads. We
do not intend to enter this terrific
controversy because of the obvious
national economic implications in-
Just in case, however, our read-
ers are in favor of these all-star
aggregations we have decided to
pick a Daily squad. I will not,
though, select an All-American
team for the 1955 season. It is the
opinion of many that our choices
might be a bit biased.

AS A RESULT, we have decided
to choose an All-American team
for the season of 1965. Though
some may question the validity of
my selections we feel The Daily is
strong enough to withstand their
protests. We will be the first
publication to release the '65 ag-
gregation and the scoop will be
quite a feather in our cap.
