No Passports


T grown "suddenly small, is looking
with renewed interest toward Canada, where
an international border is still an imaginary line.
To the north of the United States there re-
mains one nation in which no passports are
needed. In inviting Americans to visit the Do-
minion the Canadian Government has assured
all bona fide United States citizens that they
may enter Canada with the same informality as
in previous years.
Yet, despite these assurances, there is a suir
prising confusion among many Americans over
Canada's border requirements. Idle rumors and
conflicting reports have given widespread im-
pressions that United States citizens must con-
tend with considerable red tape and difficulties
in returning from Canada. Actually, the facts
are these:
1-American citizens do not need passports.
2-Naturalized citizens are required to present
naturalization papers.
3-While not mandatory, some document of
identification such as birth or marriage certifi-
cate, driving license, club card, tax receipt, so-
cial security card, or the like is recommended
to satisfy United States immigration authorities.
4-Canadian citizens are required to hold a
passport and visa upon entering the United
The only change in the border regulations is
the requirement that Canadians hold passports
when? traveling in the United States. Documen-
tary identification and naturalization papers
have been necessary in the past.
The war has not changed Canada. Its hos-
pitality to the American visitor continues. Signs
along the highways, placards in store windows.
and advertisements in newspapers welcome the
traveler: Border officials are courteous and pa-
tient. The Government has kept prices down.
In fact, Americans this year will find that their
money will go farther than ever because of the
10 per cent exchange in their favor. And to
Canada, American tourist dollars mean ex-
change for much-needed wartime purchases in
the United States.
With European travel cut off, Canada is a
logical vacation ground for tourists seeking a
change from the United States. The war has
not changed the Old World atmosphere of
French Canada. Nor has it altered the snow-
capped mountains, flashing glaciers, and spark-
ling lakes farther west. The typically english
cities of Victoria and Vancouver continue to re-
flect the peace and charm of old.
Americans traveling in Canada this year not
only arei further cementing the friendly rela.
tions that have marked a century and a quarter
of United States and Canadian history, but
financially they are aiding the British Empire
in its battle for 'self-preservation anid for the
protection of democracy as a way of living.

Ann Arbor Weather
mChicago Style ...
YOU CAN GET more weather for your
money in Chicago than anywhere
else in America. Last week shivering Southern-
ers in seersuckers edged close to the walls of
buildings as they walked along Michigan Avenue
seeking shelter from the chilly blasts of Lake
Michigan. This week, as this is written, every
Chicagoan feels like a wet sponge. A shift of
the wind, however, will send us pawing into
the moth balls for the topcoat.
We are no better satisfied with our infinite
variety than is San Francisco, where it's always
chilly, or Kansas City, where it's as hot as the
hinges of Hades or cold as a ticket on Bimelech.

Our identity has never been much of a secret.
With this column, advocating opposition to an
act now pending before Congress we wish to
drop even the small protection we have hither-
to enjoyed. The name is John Schwarzwalder,
alumnus of this University. we urge you to read
the following column. It is by far the most im-
portant thing we have ever said.
WE ARE OPPOSED to the new conscription
bill about to be passed by the Congress of
the United States. We are opposed to it all alone,
it would appear, in an unfriendly world. We
are opposed to it on grounds ranging from the
personal to the universal. We are opposed to it
because we feel that this country has more to
lose than to gain by it. Let us explain.
We are not opposed to registration of man
power. We are not opposed to training for the
home defenses insofar as this can be done. We
feel that if all the tremendous propaganda power
of the federal government is incapable of ac-
complishing its defense ends without this act,
then something had better be done about the
federal government.
The section that particularly stirs our ire
is the one that states that all young men between
21 and 30 are to be called and that approxi-
mately one tenth of them are to be trained
whether they like it or not. This is further
modified to state that all workers in."war prep-
aration industries" are to be exempted, all men
with dependents and all members of the proper
churches are to be exempted. In other words stu-
dents and the unemployed are going to consti-
tute the first batch of cannon fodder. It's just
too bad, boys, but if your relatives don't own
a metal-working company or two where you can
be slugged on the pay-roll in some "vital" ca-
pacity, or if you decided to engage in some non-
mechanical job, or if you have the bad luck
to be without a job you get trained first and
killed first. It's too bad, but we can't interrupt
production for your rights.
?[HAT is our first objection. Like most of the
rest of the laws of this country at the mo-
ment, the poor are going to be hit harder by this
one than the rich, and the unemployed are go-
ing to be hit hardest of all. Our second objection
is equally pertinent and even more general.
Our grandfather came to the U.S. from
Germany to escape the military training
which had taken so much of his life and
threatened to take so much of his son's
lives. Our great-grandfather came to this
country from Ireland in order that his sons
might not be impressed into the British
service. This country was founded by lib-
erty-loving men and wome'n who hated the
very thought of compulsory military train-
ing. What a hollow mockery this law makes
of all that.
NOW, FRIENDS, is the time to fight this law.
Now is the time to write and telegraph and
petition your congressman and senators against
this law. Men like Vandenberg and Wheeler and
Dewey and many another are already opposed
to this law. Their only fear is that the country
is against them and, being politicians, they fear
to face the tide. Convince them that the coun-
try is not behind this discriminatory, unfair,
carelessly-drawn and inept act. It can be beaten.
We have never been a political propagandist
but if it will help, send your queries and com-
ments here to us and we will see that they get
to the proper sources. This law has got to be
licked. This business of discrimination has got
to end.
We object to a law which hits the poor
harder than the rich, which deprives them
alike of life, liberty and the pursuit of hap-
piness. We object to a law which forces that
upon us which our forebears fled Europe
to avoid. We object to a law which deprives
us alike of our opportunity to earn a living
and our right to vote. We object to a law
which fastens the chain of tyranny around
the neck of the American people in the guise
of protecting that liberty.
Join this fight, join this protest. The hour is
not yet come when we must give up our liberty
to protect it. The time is not yet ripe when
we must die to insure no more death to others.
Add your voice to those who hate tyranny,
domestic as well as foreign. Pick up your courage
and join us. If you have not enough courage
for this, how will you feel later? The hour is

come to fight, to fight against tyranny not in
the armed forces but in the halls of Congress.
The fight can be won but you must help. Join in
our protest now.
City Life
In a city of Detroit's size every now and then
someone does something which must be re-
buked as a violation of a necessary rule of con-
duct but which, on the other hand, is com-
mendable. Such was the case of the DPW man
who, after being fired by his boss and having
nothing to do, opened a fire hydrant and gave
several scores of the neighborhood's children
a chance to splash around in the cooling water
on a sizzling hot day.
Give him a light rap on each knuckle with a
light ruler, then restore him to his job.

WASHINGTON--Inside fact regarding the
scathing State Department blast at Soviet Rus-
sia for seizing the Baltic states was that it
was drafted largely in Hyde Park, and that
Ambassador William Bullitt had a lot to do
with the drafting. Under Secretary of State
Welles merely acted as the mouthpiece.
The State Department had written a state-
ment criticizing Russia's seizure of Lithuania,
Latvia and Estonia, and sent it to Hyde Park
for approval. Here Bill Bullitt, ex-Ambassador
to Russia who now hates everything about it,
completely rewrote the statement, putting in
some of its most pungent phrases.
The incident is significant, for two reasons:
1st, it illustrates how the President and his
favorite ambassador act as a super-State De-
partment; and 2nd, it indicates that despite
the increasing belligerency of Japan, the Roose-
velt Administration is loath to warm up to its
most logical ally in the Pacific, Soviet Russia.
The closeness of the Bullitt-Roosevelt tie-up
has become rather embarrassing to the rest of
the State Department. For instance, following
Bullitt's return from Europe last week he did
not even visit the State Department. He went
straight to the White House, and after a week-
end there, accompanied the President to Hyde
Russia-U.S. Allies?
All of this demonstrates the fact that the
United States, if it is not to be left entirely alone
in the Pacific, must move quickly and must se-
cure friends. To date, there are only two poten-
tial friends worth worrying about.
1, is Great Britain, which in fact is America's

Soviet Russia in the first place, and
apparently he still has the last word
on the country he now hates so bit-
So probably there will be no warm-
ing up to Russia, no matter what
Japan does in the Pacific.
New Alliance
A new Workers Alliance (union of
WPA workers) is quietly in the mak-
David Lasser, former Alliance presi-
dent who resigned in protest against
Communist and fellow-traveler dom-
ination of the executive board, has
received so many pledges of rank-
and-file support that he has under-
taken to establish an entirely new
organization. Three days after he
quit, Lasser had received more than
1,000 letters from Alliance members
and local leaders urging a new union.
Lasser's resignation apparently was
a blow to the left-wing leaders. They
had secretly planned to seize com-
plete control of the Alliance at its
national convention, originally sche-
duled for July 11. But his bolt and
open charge that they were Reds
upset this scheme, and they post-
poned the convention to August 28.
