RReligious Bigotry Doesn't Pay

MORE AND MORE, the Ameri-
can public is proving that re-
ligious bigotry doesn't pay. Prob-
ably this was best demonstrated in
Colorado where in the last election
an anti-Catholic leaflet may well
have tipped the scales in favor of
the Democrats, which in turn
elected a Democratic Senate. Pro-
testant as well as Catholic vot-
ers resented the leaflet.
Prior to November 6, few peo-
ple dreamed Colorado would go
Democratic. Ike's personal friend,
ex-Gov. Dan Thornton, was run-
ning for the Senate. The Demo-
crats had been split wide open.
Ex - Congressman John Carroll,
Thornton's opponent, had been de-
feated twice before.
Carroll bears the same name as
the first American Catholic arch-
bishop, the Most Rev. John Car-
roll, and is married to a Catholic.
Carroll himself is not a Catholic.
But during the campaign, leaf-
lets were mailed from near Gun-
nison, Colo., listing nine Protest-
ant candidates who "believe in and
will support separation of church
and state and will not accept ord-
ers or directives from any foreign
totalitarian authority." Carroll's
name was not on the list of Pro-
testant candidates, and the word-
ing of the leaflets was such as to
be aimed inferentially against him,
as well as against Stephen L. R.
McNichols, candidate for Govern-
or, Albert T. Franz and Edward C.
Day, candidates for the Supreme
Court, all Catholics and all Demo-

THE CIRCULAR was unsigned,
but was traced to Clarence M.
Stafford, a Republican precinct
committeeman who heads the
Stafford Printing Co. He was in-
vestigated by U. S. Attorney Don-
ald E. Kelley, Republican, and an
information was filed against him
just before the election for put-

ting anonymous political litera-
ture in the mails.
The leaflets caused such resent-
ment among voters of various re-
ligious faiths that not only Car-
roll, but McNichols, Franz, and
Day were elected.
Part of the Democratic victory
in Colorado was also due to Sam
Clammer, Jr., Washington attor-
ney whose father was long-time
Republican National Committee-
man. When young Clammer, a
Democrat, went to his old home
at Fort Collins, Colo., to start

tell you," confessed his son. "I'm

not guilty to three counts in con-
nection with the anonymous leaf-
let, and awaits trial.

ON THE SURFACE it might ap-
pear stupid for Eisenhower to ap-
point a cash-register manufactur-
er to represent the U.S.A. at the
New Delhi UNESCO Conference, a
cultural organization. Nothing
typifies hard-fisted American ma-
terialism more than the cash
register, and you can imagine what
Red propagandists might do with
However, Stanley C. Allyn, presi-
denthof National Cash Register,
is the kind of businessman who
should be able to prove to Asians
that American businessmen can
have sympathy and understand-
ing. For Allyn has a unique record
of creating good will in various
parts of the world. His company
employs 18,000 people in 94 coun-
tries, uses native managers to run
its branches, reinvests its money

Allyn travels continually, pub-
lishes costly illustrated brochures
for his American employees ex-
plaining the problems of the coun-
tries he has visited, their history
and customs.
Allyn's policies have paid off
handsomely for National Cash
Register, but they haven't been
aimed solely at profits. Allyn is
equally interested in America's
global responsibilities, believes
business has a job to do in win-
ning friends abroad.
Note - Eisenhower's choice of
Allyn will also help show some of
the right-wing critics of UNESCO
that it is not a left-wing organi-
zation but is dedicated to combat-
ting Communism through the ex-
change of cultural and educational
information in parts of the world
where we need friends.
IT MAY HELP explain why the
defense budget is so high when
you learn that the defense depart-
ment just threw away $3,494.50 of
the taxpayers' money in order to
swing a small charter flight to a
bigger airline.
The Pentagon had asked for bids
to fly 65 military passengers from
Macon, Ga., to Lackland Air Force
Base, Tex., on November 2. Low-
est bid was submitted by Trans
American Airlines, a small line
owned by a group of veterans in
Trans American offered to make
the flight for $1,561.70. The Air
Transport Association, represent-
ing the big lines, bid $3,713.50. As
a result, the contract was award-
ed to little Trans American.
Three days before the flight,
however, the Pentagon canceled
the deal and accepted the higher
$3,713.50 bid. It came from Delta
Airlines. Explanation was that the
transportation officer in Macon
had already paid Delta for the

Problem DOES Exist.,..
To The Editor:
was very surprised to learn
in the Daily's article on the
parking problem (page 1, Fri-
day, November 16) that Mr. Karl
D. Streiff, student driving and
parking supervisor, was unaware
of the difficulties of a student
finding a place to park. Because
students hadn't complained, he
assumed that they were satisfied.
I wish to assure him that it was
only consideration or else lack of
knowing who to complain to that
has prevented his office from being
flooded with complaints.
I, for one, married, living on
the other side of town, and re-
quired to be on campus the entire
day, have a parking problem. If
I get on campus early, I have a
spot during the morning. Late-
comers are not so fortunate. I
give up my hard won morning
spot and must search anew in
the afternoon to go home at noon.
The two hour parking zones,
while aiding short term campus
visitors, mean I must interrupt my
work periodically to move my car
whenever forced to use such zones.
The Ann Arbor Police are very
efficient in checking for violators
in these zones.
Only a few isolated parking
lots are open to students, metered
of course, and at two hours for
a nickel, it totals $1.00 per week
an expense I try to avoid when
Parking for those students at
the University Terrace Apartments
has become almost impossible.
There simply aren't adequate
spaces due to the removal of their
lot to make room for a dorm.
The first step towards solving
the problem is recognition of it,
so perhaps a few letters sent di-
rectly to Mr. Streiff (1020 Ad-
ministration Building) from some
students will aid him in realizing
this problem exists.

The REAL Japan . ..
To The Editor:
for his mature perceptions of
Japanese life and for his attempt
to destroy some of the popular
stereotypes. Unfortunately, his
comments will be overwhelmed by
the misconceptions brought back
from Japan by thousands of other
service men.
At the Naval Station where I
spent 27 months it was common-j
place to meet sailors who had
nevervisited Tokyo (40 miles
away), Yokohama (15 miles a-
way), or any of the cultural land-
marks in the immediate vicinty.
They apparently had no desire to
do so. Their only lasting impres-
sions of Japan will no doubt con-
cern their favorite bar, brothel,
or mistress located just outside
the main gate of the Station.
Because of their higher educa-
tional and financial status, it
might be expected that Officers
and their dependents would at
least try to gain a broader under-
standing of Japanese life. In the
main, however, they stuck close
to their isolated, Well-heated
American communities. Except
for an occasional sorty into the
rice paddies to see a "cute little
shrine" or into Tokyo to see an
uninhibited stripper, they busied
themselves at the American PX,
commissary, movie theatre, bowl-
ing alley, or Officer's Club.

Adopted'a motion relating to the se-

which appeared in the Michigan Daily
for November 13, 1956. The motion
reads as follows: "Whereas the Michi-

cus of campus communications has
a responsibility to present a fair and
accurate presentation not only in re-
gard to its news but also in Its edi-
torial opinions, and
"Whereas the Senior Editors as the
guiding influence of th Michigan
Daily policy have supported candi-
dates for student government atnA
time when no other source was open
to review or dispute this action, and
"Whereas many questions have been
raised as to the dangerous precedent
established by this action,

ment Council encourages a serious
re-evaluation by the senior editor
of this action.

of such an undertaking and to er-
roneous impressions about the Moral

motion adopted on Nov. 7, 1956:
Student Government Council recom-
mends to the student body that each
member give serious consideration
to the goals and principles of Moral
Rearmament, and encourages the
presentation of its plays on the Uni-

for the practical implementation of
this motion, including selection and
approval of physical facilities and

Significantly, Tito returned to the fatal
question which other non-Russian Communist
parties once raised, in regard to the Khrushchev
downgrading of Stalin.
What about a system, they asked, which per-
mitted the "cult of personality?"
IT REALLY wasn't the system, the so-called
cooperative leadership in Moscow replied. It
was just that a man, during times of interna-
tional pressures when domestic political resist-
ance would have hurt the country, used the
opportunity to make himself impregnable.
He became so psycopathic and so ruthless
that proponents of a more moderate course
could not openly oppose him, they said.

leaders piped down in answer to Moscow's
appeal that they not split the international

LAST night's recital of music by
music by the University of
Michigan student composers pre-
sented works of Donald Foster,
Alexander Post, and Seymour Al-
tucher, a sonatine for flute and
piano, a sonatine for clarinet and
piano, and two movements from
a string quartet, respectively. The
evening opened with a piano so-
nata of Boris Blacher, a contem-
porary German composer.
It was in a sense ironic, that
we should hear behind the facade
of the Greek temple of Angell
Hallra concert of our young com-
posers. Both the Greeks and the
Americans have brilliance and
precision; but the Greeks tend
towards a superhuman clarity,
whereas the Americans revel ec-
statically in the nervous com-
plexity of our being.

THE FOSTER flute-piano sona-
tine seems to flow forth from the
almost fundamentalist belief in
the goodness of sonority for its

zag of the continuous tonal acti-
vity. It is classical, as opposed to
romantic or impressionistic mu-
The clarinet-piano sonatine of
Alexander Post is a very differ-
ent work. The clarinet, by its very
nature more coarse and secular,
called for a pianopart that was
often angular and hammering in
its dances. The slow movement
made use of one of the oldest prin-
ciples of the dance in symphonic
music - the passacaglia recurring
THE TWO movements from Al-
tucher's string quartet provided
the most puzzling music on the
program. Obviously, the work
was much more dissonant than
the other items heard; but here
and there an archaic ending of
the phrase on the open fifth
would provide a new orientation
post. A loving use was made of
sound effects - a quick and vi-
brato-less back-and-forth of the
bow, reminiscent of the mysteri-

Our new music obviously pre-
sents new esthetic problems, that
are yet far from being solved. The
classical ideal of musical form,
the introduction of the issue, its
complication and development,
the climax and the resolution -
this scheme is being constantly
violated with more or less suc-
cess. The achievement of climaxes,
even the organization of sound
towards a definite direction is
negated. What are the implica-
tions of all this?
poser is admired for his unflag-
ging constancy to his art. There
is something heroic fin his loss of
faith in the democratic myth of
the common man as the judge of
the arts. Popularity for him seems
trivial. A sparse audience is
rather welcomed as a courageous
selection of the spiritual elite. An
overwhelming ovation of the
thousands becomes an unexpected
nuisance and vanity.
