Norman E. Cook:
His Work Lives On ...
j N THE PASSING of Chief of Police
. Norman E. Cook, Ann Arbor and the
University community have lost a true friend and
progressive administrator whose deeds and re-
forms will long uphold his memory.
His aim in taking over the local police force
was to build an organization not only skilled and
efficient in the art of crime fighting, but also
fully alert to the more subtle and intricate prob-
lems of public relations. To this end, Chief Cook
instituted an extensive officers training program
which was instrumental in building a force well
equipped to handle the varied problems created
by. a mischievous student body.
His aims have been well realized, and the pres-
et force stands a fitting tribute to his work in
Ann Arbor,

Cause For Peace
Must Be Shown . . .
A MERICANS are being forced into a
war which they do not want, peace
groups claim, and we must oppose these forces
which are driving the United States relentlessly
towards a situation from which a peaceful out-
come is impossible. That has been the hue and
cry of all peace seeking organizations, we do
not want war, we are being forced into it-fooled
into it-despite all our efforts to the contrary.
This is definitely not the case. If and wher
the United States goes to war, it will be because
the majority of people want war. Regardless of
the claims that dictatorial powers and policies
control this country and the voters have little
or no say in national policy, it is still the people
who must bear the arms, and it is the people
who will die on the battlefields.
WHEN war was declared two years ago, the
American people were overwhelmingly in
favor of a neutral attitude and a neutral foreign
policy. At this time, though, the country was
hoping for a British victory, it was thought that
England could do the job alone, without great
difficulty. Not many anticipated the strength
of the German military machine, and those who
knew of its power refused to admit that it could
harass or defeat Great Britain.
Gallup polls have followed American public
opinion throughout the course of the war, and
the surveys have shown that without a doubt,
the Americans have swung from a neutral atti-
tude to one of "war if necessary." And today
even more Americans feel that war is necessary,
for England cannot be allowed to fall. With full
realization of the cost to us, they say, there are
times when the sacrifice of war is worth more
than the sacrifice of honor and freedom.
this sentiment, saying that the people are
being fooled, and that if the real facts were
known, they would not be so willing to go to war.
Granting these statements, the situation is still
unaltered. It still remains that the public opin-
ion of this countryis rapidly turning towards a
war attitude. It does not matter at this point
how their opinions were formed, it matters only
that they are becoming increasingly in favor of
Telling a man he's been made a fool of is no
way to combat the trend towards war. Telling
the people that they do not want war, when they
believe that they do, only serves to cause bitter-

WASHINGTON-The really important feature
of the new Air Corps set-up announced by Secre-
tary of War Stimson escaped general notice.
This was that Assistant Secretary Robert Lovett,
hard-hitting World War ace, will have charge
of deciding on new models and types of Army
This is a major reform. Previously the re-
sponsibility was scattered among the brass hats,
resulting in long delays and other hitches in get-
ting new planes into production. Under the re-
organization, Lovett will be boss and able to deal
firmly with red-tape and the bureaucrats.
BECAUSE he shuns the limelight and works
without hoopla, only insiders know that Lov-
ett has been militantly battling the red-tape
brigade since he entered the War Department
last December. The reorganization plan, which
sets up a unified, autonomous Air Corps com-
mand, was largely Lovett's work.
Note-Major General "Hap" Arnold, com-
mander of the newly created Army Air Forces,
is outranked by Lieutenant General DeLos G.
Emmons, chief of the Air Force Combat Com-
mand, which is under Arnold. To remedy this
incongruous situation, either Arnold will have
to be promoted a notch or Emmons' temporary
rank, given him last October, will have to be
reduced to Arnold's.
THE NAVY hasn't announced it yet, but it is
formulating a new program to boost its air
force to 15,000 planes and 17,000 pilots.
Its present plan calls for 10,400 planes by July,
1934. Expected are 3,600 planes by July, 1941,
7,300 by July, 1942, and the 10,400 peak by the
following year. The proposed increase will be
requested to keep the air arm abreast of the
rapidly materializing two-ocean Navy.
Newest Congresswoman
ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD Goodloe Byron, son of
son of Maryland's new congresswoman, has
had his first brush with Capitol Hill politics and
doesn't quite understand all of its bitterness,
especially when it affects the father of one of
his chums.
One of Goodloe's schoolmates is young David
Lasser, son of WPA's David Lasser. Lasser, Sr.,
was earnestly trying to combat left-wing radi-
cals inside WPA, but Congress, too dense to
understand that fact, threw him out of a job.
It happened that the second bill on which Mrs.
Byron voted after being inducted into office was
the WPA appropriation measure specifically ex-
cluding Lasser from drawing his WPA salary,
She voted with the mob and Lasser was auto-
matically discharged.
BUT young David Lasser had not been told of
the action of Congress. He knew only that
Goodloe's mother was one of those who held his
father's job in her hands. So, at school recess,
David approached Goodloe Byron.
"Please," he appealed, "ask your mom not to
vote against Daddy!"
Goodloe said he sure would, but by the time
he reached his mother it was too late.
Note-Goodloe's father, Congressman Byron,
was killed in an Atlanta plane crash last Feb-
ruary. Mrs. Byron succeeded to her husband's
Congressional seat.
Aluminum Report
ALUMINUM COMPANY of America can thank
two anti New-Deal Democrats for those puffs
it got in the House Military Affairs Committee's
report on deficiencies in the national defense
One of the congressmen was Representative
Charles I. Faddis, Pennsylvania New Deal-hater,
who headed the sub-committee that wrote the
report. The other was Representative Andrew
J. May of Kentucky, who was chiefly responsible
for the full committee's endorsement of it.
This extraordinary report scathingly blasted
the Administration for the shortage in aluminum
while warmly eulogizing the giant Aluminum
Company, which is under indictment for monop-
oly and which had just been denounced by a
Senate committee for obstructing aluminum
expansion plans.
AFTER the document had been read, Faddis
turned to white-haired Representative Ewing

Thomason, Texas New Dealer, and bluntly de-
clared, "Let's be practical. Each of us knows
now the other stands. I know you're opposed to
this report."
"I certainly am," snapped Thomason. "Your

the committee should delay consideration for
three days so we can study the testimony on
which you base your charges."
"I won't agree to that," shouted Faddis. "I
demand that the full committee approve my,
report today, so that it can be publicized in the
Sunday newspapers and offset those false
charges against the Aluminum Company made
in the report of Senator Truman's investigating
"You can't ram this down our throats on such
sudden notice," broke in Representative John
Sparkman, young Alabama New Dealer.
But Fa ldis did, with the help of May, who
used every parliamentary trick to block a move
by Sparkman to "open up" the report for re-
vision and debate. Faddis won immediate con-
sideration 11-10, with himself the only Demo-
crat voting "aye." May refused to vote.
Chemicals Next
THE NEXT major industry slated for priority
controls is the chemical industry.
With the demand for plastics soaring because
of the shortage in aluminum, steel, nickel and
other metals, serious deficiencies are showing up
in the chemicals used to produce plastics. At
the same time, the heavy demand for explosives
is creating a tight situation in chemicals nor-
mally used in fertilizer and other non-defense

By Terence 4 0
pened at a wedding, and I was there so I
know it's true stuff. One of those big social
shindigs, with press releases, 16 reporters cov-
ering it andall the doting relatives taking can-
did camera shots.
There was a magnificently appointed (got the
phrase from E. Post) tea table, with flowers
and stuff to make it look right pretty. This cer-
tain professor, who is, I believe, a member of the
history faculty, gazed with awe at this display of
garden and greenhouse florality, and then, with
a glance to see that no one was looking, pulled
from his pocket a book on how to decorate tables
published by a certain soft beverage company.
He opened the book to a page on which almost
exactly the same table was shown, with direc-
tions on how to decorate it thus. He slyly laid
the book beside the huge centerpiece, with that
page open, and walked away.
Needless to say no little consternation was
-provided for the hostess, who claimed vocifer-
ously that the florist himself had decorated the
table. And also, needless to say, no little hilarity
was provided for certain guests who take such
confabs with a whole pound of salt-yours truly
And to this prof goes Terence's vote for having
the best sense of humor on the campus. And
thanx, too, for doing something I've always
wanted to do at shindigs of that sort.
BE ON THE LOOKOUT for "Intoxication Made
Easy," which may well become the koran of
college students. Be published in October, the
publishers say, and it's a work the like of which
has never been seen before. Done by Elliot Paul,
who drummed up The Mysterious Mickey Finn,
and painter Luis Quintanilla. Its models may be
traced back to Brillat-Savarin, the Socratic dia-
logues, Rabelais and Rubens.
They ignored Terence in preparing the disser-
tation, a serious error, his colleagues will tell
you. But even so it may be fairly accurate and
informative anyway. If it's as good as I think,
it will be the gastronomo-literary event of the

H EAR A LOT about the latest in the bum of
the month campaign of Haymaker Hitler:
meeting Kid Stalin of Nishni-Novgorod. Ger-
mans Advance Into Russia; Russians Repel Ger-
mans. Interesting claims from each side, and
according to the Reds all the Nazi tanks, men

and planes have been destroyed, and vice versa.
Georgraphically, if all they say is true, the Ger-
mans should be somewhere south of Borsk, and
the Russians somewhere in the middle of the
mouth of the Amazon River.

DriveOn RussiaI
May Be Prelude
T Peace Plan
In Britain and America the Nazi
drive on Russia is naturally wel-
comed. Yet it may be the prelude to
the most dangerous offensive Hitler-
ism has yet launched against the free
world. We cannot pretend to know
what schemes, rational or otherwise,1
lie behind Berlin's decision to risk aT
struggle with the Soviet. But we
know some of the lines of Adolf Hit-
ler's thinking, some alternatives that
faced him, and some favorite Nazi
techniques which, fitted together,
make a picture of possibilities against
which it would be well to be prepared.
Suppose Herr Hitler put it to himself,
this way:
J CAN'T BE SURE of knocking out
Britain this year. My generals
can do anything on land; they1
flanked the Maginot Line and have
plans complete for a Russian con-
quest, but they don't know how to
detour the English Channel. Unless
I cancrack Britain this year I must
do three things to prepare for next
year: 1. Clean out the threat of the
Red Army at my back. 2. Get oil
and food resources. 3. Try to head
off the Americans.
"An attack on Russia serves all
three purposes. Even if I don't bag
the Red Army and break Stalin's
power, I should be able to get the
Ukraine wheat and Black Sea oil.
With them I can launch a double-
barreled war-or-peace offensive.
" CAN GIVE Britain the choice be-
tween an attack ten times worse
than any she has seen and a 'peace'
which will leave her all her Empire.
Such a generous public offer ought
to 'cool off' many Americans. They
will not see that 'peace' will give me
an opportunity to organize Europe
for a new drive, extend my economic
and propaganda pressures and ac-
quire ships and planes with which to
get at Britain and America.
"If I can get from Russia the vast
region west of a line from Leningrad
to the Black Sea, I can make an even
more generous offer, one that ought
to isolate the British. I can offer to
evacuate Western Europe at least-
the, 'democracies.' Then I can offer
peace not only as a bulwark against
Bolshevism but as the friend of 'free
"SUPPOSE we get out of France,
Belgium, The Netherlands, Nor-
way, Denmark. Of course the Ges-
tapo and Fifth Columnists would re-
main. Those countries have no equip-
ment now to make war and we could
bribe them with food and freedom'
to join our economic new order. I
can manage their industries sohthey
will not build planes, tanks or ships-
unless for us.
"One big advantage of new Leben-
raum in Russia is that it makes evac-
uation politically feasible. It would
be compensation for our evacuation
in the west, particularly to business-
men and party leaders who now en-
joy powers and privileges in occu-
pied countries.
"SUCH A 'PEACE' ought to make
Americans believe that the Brit-
ish are fighting only for themselves
or for their own dominance on the
Continent. This peace offensive
would be my big drive of 1942-it
could be made as soon as we get the
Ukraine and Caucasus-and would
aim chiefly t the United States.
"Stopping the Americans is the
most important. For by next year
they and the British together will be
superior on sea and in the air. If this
plan wins the Americans, most of the
resistance in the occupied countries

would melt away. And it would leave
Britain alone. Even if it only delays
aid to Britain and keeps America out
it would greatly weaken London's
determination to fight. Indeed the
opportunity to wage peace may be my
best reason for tackling Russia now."
THIS IS NOT, of course, an actual
report of anything heard in Ber-
lin. It may not even take account of
many factors entering Herr Hitler's
decision. We offer it simply as cast-
ing some light from experience and
reason on major issues in the present
situation. Particularly we offer it as
a warning of a peace offensive which
is bound to come sooner or later.
The best answer to such an offen-
sive would be a clarification of Amer-
ica's thinking about a peace which
would be more than a truce, more
than temporary immunity for Ameri-
ca, partial freedom for occupied
countries. Why shouldn't America
and Britain outline such terms and
head off a Nazi peace offensive?
