"They Don't Like To Be Disturbed"

When Opinions Are Free
Truth Will Prevail"

Editorials printed in The Michigan Daily express the individual opinions of staff writers or

Heath, Christy:
The Hot and the Cool
IF YOU like the big sound, you like Ted Heath. The two are synony-
mous, for the crashing, highly spirited style they represent. This
swinging band, with more than overtones of jazz arrangement is tour-
ing America for the first time, in an exchange agreement with Stan
Kenton, who is visiting England.
Heath does a great deal with his sixteen piece group, featuring
a large brass section, a wildly great drummer, Ronnie Verril, and
an eccentric but talented bass man, who keeps the comedy running
smoothly with his facial contortions and tete-a-tete with Ronnie.
The audience is given a thorough example of the groups' talents
as attention is shifted from a George Shearing piano arrangement of
"Lullaby of Birdland," to the rhythmic, "Madagascar," and then,
lights out! for their glow-in-the-dark rendition of "Jungle Drums."
THERE WERE moients when the line between the big sound
and ordinary brashness was crossed, and an unfortunate screaming



An Open Letter
To Dean B acon

AUCERED milk left in the cupboard will
sour. Ideas do not possess the same chemi-
cal structure. Ideas can, and do, live - some-
times for centuries.
We were rather startled to discover "Harry
Lunn's viewpoint is way out of date." Mr. Lunn
was an undergraduate student less than three
years ago. Surely, ideas do not become defunct
that quickly.
Although you tell us three years is a "whole
(university) generation," we must agree with
those little men in the Halls of Angell and
Haven who find historical continuity between
Plato and Presley. And we think there must
be some continuity between the student of
1954 and 1957, especially if it is represented
by Mr. Lunn. After all, Mr. Lunn has been in
contact with students since graduating from
the University, and two years' work with the
National Students Association does not really
leave a man's mind "way out of date."

YOUR ADDITIONAL statement to Mr. Baad,
"They'll never have heard of you either,"
has validity, the same kind of validity in say-
ing that you, too, will be forgotten one day.
But, as long as we are at the University, we
have to remember Mr. Baad's and Mr. Lunn's
ideas are with us; and since we cannot always
live from moment to moment, we shall need
recourse to other means of disproving an idea's
validity than predicting anonymity for its
hoary supporters or counting its grey hairs.
There is an essential difference between hu-
man beings and tsetse flies: people have an in-
tellectual connection with previous genera-
tions; the tsetse learns by instinct.
We strongly urge you forget individuals in
dealing with ideas: ideas have a strange way
of living longer than the generations who ad-
vocate them.

Too Many Panels?

A FAIR GUESS is that everybody connected
with Tuesday night's IHC symposium ex-
perienced a great deal of embarrassment.
The 18 members of the audience were em-
barrassed, because they were the only people
there. IHC officials were embarrased because
they had planned the program and nobody
was there. And probably Dr. Kuizenga, ex-
pected to address a great many more people,
and was embarrassed.
Attendance of only 18 people is more than
poor; it is next to nothing on a campus of 20,-
000. Undoubtedly a great many righteous
souls become distraught by this apathy and
are eager to pin the blame on whomever is
most convenient.
However, the blame lies with a great many
people. A quick .look at the calendar will show
there are a vast number of lectures, panels
and debates every week.
Every group must sponsor at least one "to
present a service to campus" and incidentally
earn prestige. Perhaps the saturation point
has been reached. The Middle East, for ex-
ample, has been discussed at least six times
so far this year.
IHC chose the topic Protestantism for their
most recent symposium. This should have Deen
interesting to a great many people, but in the
swarm of debates, panels and lectures, it can
not stand out enough to attract people.
JHC OFFICIALS were upset because they had
only placed one poster on each bulletin
board, and next time they'll "know better."
But even if they add six, they will be difficult
to single out from the patch-work' mass that
are University bulletin boards. Every poster
announces the importance of whatever dis-
cussion it is boosting. The result is chaos.
Perhaps students are at fault too, if it is
a sin to be disinterested in most of these topics.
But the fact remains they are disinterested,

and University organizations should be aware
of this.
We recommend that groups think twice, be-
fore sponsoring panels, debates, and lectures.
Just ask "Do we have something, new and
worthwhile, to offer the campus? Do we have
speakers who have something to say? Or do we
just want to have another panel?" By following
these simple rules a great deal of discomfort
could be spared a great many people.
Stockwell Women -
Be Not Concerned
MEMO to the women of Stockwell:
It has been claimed that certain members
of your residence are behaving in a highly un-
lady-like manner in the lounges - and are
rather indignant about being told so.
Since this is obviously the work of a few
Victorian reactionaries, we suggest you ap-
proach and handle these Victorians with care
and understanding.
Try to be lenient toward violators, women of
Stockwell, lest you further step on any dignity
and pride they may possess.
Because if you start questioning their dignity
you may also injure their self-respect even
though these girls possess this characteristic
in abundance - particularly when in their
And do not worry about those who claim
embarrassment at the lounge frolicking. Sure-
ly, if these people really wanted to, they could
become involved in a deep philosophical dis-
cussion - or at least one psychological, using
empirical observation, of course.
Primarily, women of Stockwell, do not be
too concerned or critical toward these girls -
they'll grow up in time.

A Step Toward European Integration

effect was the result, but usual-
ly, balance was achieved.
June Christy controlled the
audience and orchestra - it could
hardly be otherwise - with her
perfectly professional approach,
excellent timing and off-beat note
accent. She is a highly flexible
singer because her style allows
her to improvise, meeting the im-
promptu requirements of a jazz
vocalist. Without obviousness.
she manages to convey an inten-
sity of expression. especially ef-
fertive in "Midnight Sun," and
her own classic. "Something
A pleasant surprise followed
with Eddie Heywood, who em-
phasized jazz arrangements in his
quiet, refreshing style, and left
his two popular hits, unmen-
tioned, for the encores. The usual
repeated melodic figures which
underscore many of his arrange-
ments were less predominant,
with more variation employed
to bring out the subtleties of
"Funny Valentine," and "Sum-
mertime." He was backed by an
unpretentious drummer and in-
teresting bass which completed
the well knit trio.' The group
maintained an intimate atmos-
phere, which is next to impossible
in Hill Auditorium.
AL HIBBLER rounded out the
show, hitting high spots only on
"Because of You," and his inimi-
table, "After the Lights Go Down
Considering the limitations of a
show of this type in an auditor-
ium the size of Hill, the group
managed to establish a sense of
rapport with the audience and
came off with a success that will
be recalled after the last scream
has died away.

WHILE Secretary Dulles has
been watching the United Na-
tions for development of a legal
world order, European statesmen
have been quietly arranging the
next step in their own integration.
They have agreed to set up an
atomic energy community for joint
development which is close kin to
the coal and steel community set
up some years ago.
They are also establishing a
common market under a customs
union such as the one undertaken
by Holland, Belgium and Luxem-
bourg immediately after World
War II, these countries now join-
ing with France, Italy, and West
This is a step which has long
been urged by the United States,
which has cited the example of
the importance of her own national
market in her development.
*U c i* *
STILL UNDER consideration in

Europe is a plan for turning this
common market into a free trade
area and the inclusion of Britain
along with the African territories
of all members.
Development of the common
market, and of the free trade area
if it comes about, is recognized as
requiring years for completion,
during which some leaders will
continue to urge increasing politi-
cal unity as needed for govern-
ments of the economic union.
Some of these leaders have kept
Britain in fright over talk of an
eventual federation - a United
States of Europe, which she would
either have to join or stand aside
while a great new power grows up
across the channel.
JUST WHAT such a new power
would mean in the search for a
world order cannot be known until
the condition of the world at the
time is known.
The development of Russia from
a second-class European power in-

to a world power has torn the
world apart. It would have changed
things vastly regardless of wheth-
er it occurred under communism.
Establishment of a world order
presumes a certain amount of sur-
render of individual national soy-
ereignties. That's what Dulles
meant when he viewed recent de-
velopments in the United Nations
with Britain and France bowing to
public opinion in the Suez case,
as perhaps advancing the cause of
a world order.
tional states, especially large ones,
ordinarily increases nationalism
and claims to national sovereignty.
This might not be entirely true
of a new Europe created through
the surrender of certain already
well-established sovereignties.
It could, however, centralize the
power of an area which is now
divided, and so create, under cer-
tain conditions, a new competitor
for world power.

Antagonism Flashes for Secretary of State Dulles

Prize for ISA Forum

PRIZE for the year's most absurd forum goes
to International Student Association for its
discussion "Is Democracy a Farce?" Thursday
Seldom have less valid and more illogical
arguments been heard in a supposedly scholar-
ly environment.
First, democracy was defined as existing in
unadulaterated form in the era of Greek city-
states, a definition which has no basis in fact
and is thus an invalid premise. No political
scientist will contend that democracy as prac-
ticed in Athens was pure and completely ideal-
Secondly, to take democracy as practiced
in another land over two thousand years ago
as a standard and measure contemporary
American democracy against it is highly ques-
tionable from a logical standpoint. A far more
appropriate and worthy topic would have been
to ascertain the fundamental ideals of Ameri-
can democracy, as conceived by Americans,

and then determine how well in practice these
ideals are met. Substantively, no thinking
American will claim perfection and in many
instances will admit lamentable deviation from
expressed ideals. But this does not negate the
value of the affirmative aspects of a democrat-
ic society.
T HE SPEAKER who claimed that self-gov-
ernment does not exist within the United
States except every four years when the people
go to the ballot box would do well to attend
a meeting of the Ann Arbor City Council or
take a trip to a rural locality where town
meetings are held in which all citizens of the
constituency have a right to speak and vote.
A study of the motivations and processes of
representative government might also be in
order. Self-government in these United States
is not, fortunately, to be seen in the big splashy
campaigns but in the unobtrusive daily con-
duct of the affairs of the community.
The contention that the American people
have the freedom and right to speak only
within constitutional limits and present laws
is correct. But the conclusion that thus they
do not have freedom is illogical. A reading of
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Zacariah Chaffee, and
Harold Medina to discover the constitutional
limits and how they apply would have contri-
buted considerably more than the poorly rea-
soned statement presented during the forum.
No American citizen has the right to slander
his neighbor-but this can hardly be described
as a limitation on the freedom of speech when
the right of every American to be protected
from slander is considered,
LASTLY, with the exception of one speaker,
no mention was made of the inalienable
rights of the individual. Herein lies the ideal
of equality, not in "51 per cent ruling 49
per cent." The assumption that majority rule
is absolute has no basis in either theory or fact.
Within its sphere, however, we find it more

By The Associated Press
'WHEN Sir Anthony Edenresign-
ed recently as British Prime
minister, various polite suggestions
were made in London and in pri-
vate talks among foreign diplo-
mats here that Anglo-American
relations would be improved if
Secretary of State Dulles also step-
ped aside.
These flashes of antagonism for
the Eisenhower administration's
top diplomat hardly faded on the
horizon when a group of Senate
Democrats thundered into action
against Dulles.
These events have inevitably
raised the question whether Dulles
is about washed up as director of
U.S. foreign policy. President
Eisenhower has shown no sign of
weakening in his support for his
secretary of state. Nor has Dulles
shown any sign of giving up the
position for which he dreamed,
schemed and trained himself over
a period of more than 40 years.
Yet there can be no doubt that
nearing the age of 69-his birth-
day is Feb. 25-John Foster Dulles
is facing one of the toughest fights
of his long and combative career.
He is coming now to realize what
his predecessors in the top Cabi-
net spot have all found out
through bitter experience:
* * *
THAT ALONE among govern-
ment ministers the secretary of
state has no constituents-as the
secretary of agriculture has the
farmers-that he is always sus-
pect for dealing with foreigners
and that he is responsible for-mis-
haps beyond his control.
Dulles has now been in charge
of foreign affairs in Washington
for years. He is not approaching a
record for durability; the late Cor-
dell Hull held the post for more
than a decade. But four turbulent
vearo nf sticrm h with Russia. of

out much of the reserve of- good
will and of respect which almost
always attaches to a new man in
the job.
* * *
HE HAS achieved some results,
such as stalling the British-French
attack on Egypt over Suez last
fall, at the cost of confidence by
others in his word and intention.
He has lost the aura of a repu-
tation for almost infallible know-
ledge of foreign affairs which once
blunted the questions of congress-
men and even discouraged the per-
sistent probings of senators.
Dulles got into politics late. He
associated himself with New York
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey in the
1940s as an adviser on foreign
policy. He was in line to be secre-
tary of state in 1944 and again in
'48, but Dewey lost. Dulles thus
knew the bitterness of defeat for
his long-cherished dream and
learned the need for political
maneuver and a broad base of
* * *
HE SERVED briefly in the U.S.
Senate under an appointment by
Dewey, Later he associated him-
self with Eisenhower t an early
time in the President's own be-
lated political career and there
was never much doubt that he
wouldnbe secretary of state if
Eisenhower won.
Dulles' most brilliant perform-
ance in foreign affairs before he
took office came in 1950-51 when
he was working as an adviser to
Secretary of State Dean Acheson
and negotiated the Japanese Peace
In 1952, after Dulles had worked
with the Democrats closely for
several years, he resigned and
entered Eisenhower's presidential
campaign. His criticism of foreign
policy on fundamental points with
respect to the Far East and Europe
was what he considered vigorous,

miles, more than 14 times around
the world.
One thing which never seems to
upset Dulles is an inconsistent,
even glaring contradiction in his
own position. This has repeatedly
astonished his friends and critics
alike. It may be one of the reasons
why the heavy burden of his work
never seems to weigh him down.
He acts on the moment as meas-
ured by his concept of major U.S.
interests and his own position.
A lack of trust in Dules on the
part of at least the Democratic
elements was bluntly stated by
opposition senators when the sec-
retary took his arguments before
the Foreign Relations and Armed
Services committees. Since it
seemed clear that essential ele-
ments of the Eisenhower proposal
to use troops if necessary in the
Middle East would be voted, the
opposition appeared to run pri-
marily to a lack of confidence

in Dulles and an unwillingness to
give him and the President what
they wanted almost without ques-
The reverses Dulles has suf-
fered in his relations with Con..
gress and with the Allies have not
had any apparent effect on his
health. His rugged constitution
has shown itself capable of ab-
sorbing burdens and blows that
would have broken many other
public men.
Dulles' record is studded with
a long list of foreign policy suc-
cesses. He helped Eisenhower put
an end to the Korean War within
a few months after taking office.
Dulles later claimed that he let
the Red Chinese know that the
war, would be broadened if they
didn't make a deal. He saw Iran
pull back from the edge of a
Communist coup and restored as
an ally and friend of the West.
