Judge Davies probably does have a "personal

have the same bias. It is rather difficult to
tolerate violation of federal court injunctions

(Editor's Note: Drew Pearson's
column today takes the form of
a letter written from the Bal-
kans to his grandson, Drew
Dear Drew:
YOU wrote me that you would
like to learn more about this
part of the world. I am now in a
city which I visited many years-
ago at the end of World War I
when I started out as a young
man to try, as I thought, to car-
ry out some of President Woodrow
Wilson's ideals about a war to
end war.
This city, called Salonika, was
then a great war base. it was the
seaport at which the Allies mobil-'
ized a great army which finally
advanced north into Serbia and
broke the back of the Kaiser's ar-,
. And all about me in this city
when I arrived I saw the effect
of war. There were British troop4
and French troops; Indian sikhs
with high t u r b a n s and long
beards; Indo- Chinese troops
wearing straw hats; Italian troops
with high green hats; and white
Russian troops stranded in Salon-
ika by the Bolshevik Revolution.
OUTSIDE the city I used to ride
for one hour through the Allied
war dumps looking for supplies
which might help rebuild Serbia.
For miles along the seacoast were
spread out the weapons, the tools
of war-railroad ties, railroad
tracks, drums of gasoline, moun-
tains of drums, steel cable, loco-

motives rusting in the sun, rail-
road cars, artillery carriages-the
weapons of war that had taken
months to accumulate and cost
millions of dollars. Now they were
wasting, rotting-the usual after:
math of war.
This week I came back. I found
a new city. The h'ouses had been
rebuilt. The streetcar tracks had
been pulled up-replaced by buses.
The Turkish cobblestones had
been s m o o t h e d out. The two
American destroyers that were
tied up to the docks at late as six
years ago generating electri city for
the town, were gone-replaced by
a modern light plant.
And out along the bay where.
stretched mile after mile, I rode
the Allied supply dumps o n c e
along miles and miles of little
farms and patches of corn, cotton
and tobacco. ' # .
' * * *
UP THE VARDAR River just,
outside Salonika, I visited a dam
being built by the Greek govern-'
ment with American aid, under
the direction of an .American en-'
gineer, Forrest Varney of Sacra-
mento. For hundreds of years the
Vardar has rushed down to the
sea and no one ever bothered to
harness its strength or use its
water for irrigation.
In Salonika I watched the
American Ambassador and the
Prime Minister open the trade
fair. It was like the Gaithersburg
Fair, I take you to in Maryland,
andI was sorry we missed it this,
year. Only this fair doesn't have
the side-shows and rodeo, and the'
horses which compete with each

other to see which can pull the
heaviest loads. This fair featured
farm machinery from America,
and many other countries, togeth-
er with modern, up-to-date ex-.
hibits unheard-of in the war-torn
old Turkish city I used to know.
They even sold Greek hot dogs
and hamburgers-a little differ-
ent from ours, but still pretty
One American exhibit, supplied
by the American 'Farnm School,
showed how to' hatch chickens,
showed the chicks coming out of'
the shell while you stood there,
showed different sized chickens
growing, and a machine to pluck
their feathers ,after they were
grown, and finally a barbecue spit
to cook them.
The Greeks were fascinated.
* * *
WELL, THAT'S how things have
changed since I was here as a
boy. And that's how any part of
the world can change when it's
given a chance for peace.
We have been lucky in America,
because for almost a hundred
years we have not been desolated
by war. I hope wecan remain that
way. I hope our influence with
Europe will keep it that way. I
confess that I have sometimes
been discouraged since those days
when I. went off to try to help
promote the ideals of Woodrow
Wilson. However, I hope you will
nevei get discouraged, and that,
when you grow up, you will al-
waya keep working to prevent war.

Our scientists and officials are
reticent only about some details
of rockets which will put the little
moon into its orbit. For rocketry
involves military secrets.
THERE IS much speculation
that the first nation to conquer
space could control the world,
putting all ndtions under tele-
scopic observation from space plat-
forms, hitting any target anywhere
from outer space. There are also
proposals to put space under in-
ternational control.-
But the IGY moons are deci-
cated purely to peaceful benefit
of all peoples..

of a bushel basket, weights 20

The first and larger two fall

The President cannot have meant to approve
armed resistance to the enforcement of the
Constitution he is sworn to uphold.
Yet the sentence is open to the construction
which the Governor's apologists have put upon
it. The sentence is obviously an echo of the.
Governor's own attempts to justify his action..
The sentence would never have been in the

principle had gotten the Governor to back

UNFORTUNATELY, the Governor has pre-
cipitated an issue which does not lend it-
self to compromise. The issue, let us remember,
is not where and when, how fast and how much,
the white public schools shall be opened to
Negro children. Integration is bound to be a
long and slow process, and no good can come
of -impatient, uncompromising attempts to
force the pace. But the issue forced by Gov.
Faubus is whether a community like Little
Rock, which had consented to a very moderate
degree of integration, may be over-ruled by
the Governor and prevented from observing the
The issue, in short, is whether a Governor
may use the National Guard to enforce segrega-
tion. This is not an issue that can be com-
promised. Either he can or he cannot. If he
can, the hope of proceeding slowly and by
consent, as in fact was happening in Arkansas,

IN YESTERDAY'S edition of The
Daily, an editorial accused the
Michigan Union of incompetence
in its handling of the Air Flight
to Europe and the Student Book
Exchange. The complications
which developed with the Air-
'Flight were beyond the control of
the Union and certainly not due
to incompetence on our part.
To clarify the situation we pre-
sent these facts:
1)The Student Government
Council delegated the administra-
tion of the airflight to the Union,
last fall. SGC had already nego-
tiated with Flying Tigers Airline,.
and therefore the Union had no
choice but to accept the contract.
The delay of 48 hours on the re-
turn trip was due solely to Flying
Tigers. We realize the delay incon-.
venienced many passengers. We
are now in the process of negotia-
ting with Flying Tigers, who have
an obligation to reimburse the
passengers for the additional ex-
pense incurred.
2) The flight leaders were not
given free passage, as claimed by
the editorial. This is in accord-
ance with a Civil Aeronautics
Board 'ruling.
3) The cost of the airflight was
originally $310 per person. This
is $200 less expensive than the
rate charged by the commercial
airlines and $50 cheaper than the
rate charged by airflights at most

decision by the CAB. Such a de-
cision would have reduced the
number of passengers, thereby in-
creasing the pro-rata share per
Fortunately the Union was suc-
cessful in its legal efforts and will
return most of the $30 to the pas-
sengers after deducting the legal
expenses incurred.
In view of these facts, it is ob-
.vious that the term "incompetent"
was hardly applicable. Positive
steps have been taken to avoid
similar complications in future
For some years the Student
Book Exchange has been a foot-
ball passed around by several ma-
jor campus organizations. Each
one of these organizations had ex-
perienced considerable difficulty
in the operations of SBX. Since
we took over SBX we have experi-
enced these same difficulties.
We realize that some of the
criticisms by The Daily in yester-
day's editorial were justified.
These difficulties which are in-
herent in the structure of SBX
can only be eliminated by com-
plete re-organization of SBA. We,
will submit a plan of re-organi-
zation to SGC shortly.
We will continue to endeavor
to meet the needs of our expand-
ing campus community. In striv-
ing to reach this goal we will al-
ways welcome constructive and

incompetence, This is the type of
criticism needed to ,keep our of-
ficials on the job.
I might add that incompetence
of this sort often arises from the
desire to some of our colleagues on
campus to become known as cam-
pus leaders, yet without obligating
themselves. This is' a disease
which despairingly crops up in
governing bodies, for it not only
makes for poor government; it
also casts a shadow on the hun-
dreds of others who, realizing
their responsibilities, dispatch
them to the best of their abilities.
