The editorials published in The Michi-
gan Daily are written by members of The
Daily staff and represent the views of the

Gov. Talmadge
And Educatio .. .

H E'S GONNA GIT them aliens ...
who ain't got Georgy blood." So
runs a piece of verse which is taking Georgia,
one of the supposedly United States, by storm.
And in such a spirit did Gov. Eugene Talmadge,
with power vested in him by the people of his
state, dismiss Iowa-born Walter Cocking, dean
of the College of Education at the University
of Georgia.
It was in spite of the sarcastic verses men-
tioned, which originated from the pen of a
Macon Telegraph writer, and in spite of ridicule
expressed by the citizens of the state, that ten
of Georgia's 15 regents voted in favor of Tal-
madge's move. Reason for the move, as the
governor stated, is that Cocking openly ex-
pressed his hope that white and Negro teachers
might study together at a proposed graduate
school, to be located near Athens, Ga.
BUT underlying this, perhaps in a measure
resulting from attitude taken by men of
Cocking's mettle, is the campaign throughout
the state to purge all "foreigners," people born
outside of Georgia.
Suppose Negroes and whites alike are against
ideas like Cocking's. Even in this case, is there a
reason for such superior notions as the driving
out of non-Georgians?
Education is-aimed at broadening the human
being and preparing him for a useful and satis-
fying life. One of the most effective means of
realizing this aim is hearing and reading the
views of others who have had experiences differ-
ent from those of the hearer and reader. People
living together in a limited experience tend to
center their views upon a common point-indi-
vidual opinion become mass opinion.
THE ONLY ESCAPE from this narrowing of
experience is to introduce ideas from the
outside. And one of the means which has made
this interchange so notably present in our coun-
try is the ease with which travel and migration
are accomplished within the thousands of square
miles in the United States. When this free move
of population is hampered, the loss is reflected
on the populace.
The views of one man cannot work wonders
unless he is in a position to put these views into
play through legislation or other means. Cock-
ing, then, would have to have tremendous popu-
lar support to alter traditional educational or-
ganization in Georgia against a strong adminis-
tration.
UNLESS he and others like him have this sup-
port in reality, the governor would have
nothing to fear from these men, and there would
be no visual reason for ousting them from re-
sponsible positions. It would seem from this
reasoning that men who favor equalizing Negro
and white education have considerable support,
for the governor to fear them so.
Aside from this point, there is the question of
digging a moat on the boundaries of a single
state within a union of states. In the midst of
one of the most concerted moves our country has
ever undertaken, when it is so important for
every citizen in the country to offer his coopera-
tion in the defense drive, it is somewhat of a
calamity when this one state initiates a minor
civil war. If the "foreigners" had unmistakably
caused a labor problem like that which Califor-
nia has experienced, there might have been a
r~~cy . ramafzcroC mrinn

WASHINGTON-Out of 26 major "incidents
of damage" in defense plants last month, Mili-
tary Intelligence authorities have evidence that
fourteen were caused by sabotage. The other
twelve were accidents.
Of the fourteen sabotage cases, four were
fires and ten were mechanical damage. Two
are attributed to Communists; the others to
Nazi agents. There is no indication that Com-
munists and Nazis worked together.
Since the outbreak of the Russo-German war,
the Communist Party line has somersaulted.
The current dictum is, no interference with de-
fense output. It is significant that since the
Nazi attack on the Soviets there has been a
sharp decline in strikes.
However, Intelligence agents report that the
Party has made no change in its policy of propa-
gandizing soldiers and sailors. This is being
pushed as vigorously as before, although with
little success. In fact, Party generals are so
dissatisfied with results that they recently or-
dei'ed unions dominated by Communists to help
their campaign by offering their halls as soldier
recreation centers.
Japanese Consulates
Another significant development in subversive
influences relates to the Japanese.
Since the expulsion of the Nazi and Italian
consulates, Intelligence officers have found that
the Japanese consulates in Los Angeles and
Seattle have become the chief clearing houses
for espionage on the West Coast. Japanese resi-
dents are sending in a constant stream of re-
ports on airplane production, ship movements
and other military information.
The recent arrest of two Japanese spies in Los
Angeles caused a flurry in Japanese quarters,
and a number of Japanese rushed to Washing-
ton, apparently to place themselves under the
protection of their embassy. Others hot-footed
for Mexico, which may mean they are planning
to shift spy headquarters to Mexico City.
Note-Falange Espanola de Panama, Fascist
organization among Spanish residents in Pan-
ama, is threatening those who refuse to join with
loss of business permits. The organization claims
to have the assurance of the Panamanian gov-
ernment that they will be protected against U.S.
interference.
Cordell Hull's New Home
Secretary of State Hull, who suffered from
nervous exhaustion about the time the Robin
Moor was sunk, is now back on the job after
more than a month of illness. Returning from
a rest at White Sulphur Springs, he walked into
one of the most elaborate and comfortable
apartments in the entire Capital.
He and Mrs. Hull, who live alone, recently have
moved from the Carlton Hotel, where they spent
the first eight years, into a 14-room apartment
in the Wardman Park Hotel. It occupies the
entire wing of the hotel's fourth floor, and com-
mands a view of Rocky Creek and across the
entire town to the Capitol.
The great living room measures 50 by 22 feet,
and the dining room is large enough to seat 18
persons. The walls of the library, w'iich Mrs.
Hull calls "The Judge's workshop," are covered
with autographed photographs of notables Hull
has known personally in his long career. (He is
approaching his 70th birthday.)
The new quarters have revived Mrs. Hull's
enthusiasm for official life. She repeatedly used
to tell friends she wanted the Secretary to re-
sign. But the other day, after showing a diplo-
matic friend through the new apartment, she
said with a cheery smile, "Now, we have decided
not to resign!"
Note-The pantry is stocked with home grown
foodstuffs and preserves from down in Tennes-
see, for the delectation of the Secretary.
Goering's Amusements
Many stories about Marshal Goering, No. 2
Nazi now reportedly in disgrace, have come out
of Paris since the fall of France. One describes
him as frequenting the Paris cafes nightly, al-
ways bringing a huge roll of both French and
German money, and spending 100,000 francs in
a single evening.
A more recent fad with him is to carry a whip
with which he breaks all the light bulbs in the

establishment. Then he pays for the damage.
Brother Denny Lewis
It was a tough day for A. D. ("Denny") Lewis,
loud-talking brother of hirsute John L.
Denny is head of the United Construction

guard" henchmen were sent west to look over
the situation.
Then came the deluge.
In Minneapolis a federal grand jury indicted
Trotskyite chieftains of Local 554 on charges of
advocating overthrow of the U.S. Government
through armed force. And in Washington, De-
fense authorities entered into an agreement with
the AFL building trades union,.recognizing them
as sole bargaining agency on all defense con-
struction jobs-and leaving Denny's UCW out in
the very cold cold.
One of Denny's lieutenants, bewailing the
double blow, remarked, "Who says lightning
doesn't strike twice in the same place?"
Note-Defense officials are quietly working on
a master wage-hour agreement covering the
entire aircraft industry, similar to the one ne-
gotiated last spring on shipbuilding.
Capital Chaff
A new car appeared the other day at the visi-
tor's entrance of the Navy Department, bearing
Diplomatic license 109. The chauffeur said it
was his first trip to the Navy building. Reason:
his boss was Soviet Ambassador Constantin Ou-
mansky . .. When U.S. troops went to Iceland
they fulfilled a prophecy made by publicity agent
Eddie Jaffe, who handled the Iceland exhibit at
N. Y. World's Fair. At that time he got Iceland
Commissioner Thor to say, "The people of Ice-
land hope for the help and sympathy of the
United States if the future aggression of foreign
.powers warrants it."
Dead Oyster Shells
If you have any oyster shells to sell the Army,
be sure they are dead shells, not live ones. The
War Department doesn't want lve shells, even
if they are empty, because they smell bad.
Certain citizens of Biloxi, Mississippi, discov-
ered this when bidding for construction of the
technical air school of the Army Ar Corps. The
War Department wanted oyster shells, and lots
of them, for surfacing the field, but they had to
look pretty and smell sweet.
There is a difference between live shells which
come from the cannery, and dead shells which
are dug up from the ocean bottom and which
have been thoroughly washed by the salt. The
cannery shells retain some vestige of their former
tenants, and sooner or later they reek to high
heaven. The Biloxi contractors made the mis-
take of buying a lot of cannery shells.
Hunted Labor Mediator
When jolly, white-thatched Roger Lapham,
San Francisco steamship executive, accepted the
job of employer representative on the Defense
Mediation Board, he had no idea he was letting
himself in for a police manhunt, nor did the
mouritain trout of Oregon realize they would
benefit thereby.
Trout fishing is Lapham's favorite sport. After
returning home from a recent mediation assign-
ment in Washington, D. C., and cleaning up
some urgent chores in his office, he set out for
a few days' fishing in Oregon. The next morning
his secretary received a long-distance call sum-
moning Lapham back to Washington.
"All I can tell you is that he's fishing some-
where on the Mackenzie River," said the secre-
tary. "It's simply impossible . .
"You've got to find him right away," was the
answer. "We have got to have Mr. Lapham."
His alert secretary got busy. She put in an
SOS call to the Oregan State police, starting off
one of the most extensive manhunts Oregon has
experienced in years. Radio calls to check the
license tags of all cars on roads leading to the
river were broadcast, together with detailed
descriptions of Lapham and his auto.
Finally, after a six-hour search, the cops found
their quarry blissfully, fishing fAr out in the
river, miles from civilization. Lapham hustled
back to Washington, D.C., but he was far from
his jolly self when he showed up at the Media-
tion Board offices.
* "I guess I have to grin and bear it," he moaned
to Chairman William H. Davis, "but you fellows
broke up the best fishing trip I've been on in
years. Those trout were biting like sixty,"
Army Department
George Jessel's father-in-law-who will be-
come a grandfather on Oct. 3-has been elevated

from the rank of private and now is a sergeant
. . . Jessel, who entertained the soldiers in the
last war, was one of a large group of screen stars
who recently entertained 40,000 soldiers at a
camp in California. The movie director in charge
of the show had prepared scripts, in which the

STUPID StUff
By Terence
THERE WAS a heck of a wreck
Sunday night out on Jackson
Road about three miles from here.
The details aren't important to this
column, and, besides, by now you've
picked most of them up from the
Annaday or the Detroit papers. But
just for the records: one car con-
taining seven colored soldiers from
Camp Custer driving west, one car
driven by Herbert Tolberg of De-
troit, with two CCC boys from Chi-
cago. The two cars hit head on, so
hard that neither turned over but
just locked dead in the middle of
the highway.
That's the story as the facts give
it. All were injured, none killed. But
behind the vital statistics is the
story of heroism of five soldiers from
Camp Custer, who arrived on the
scene first, and took command of the
situation-they told it this way them-
selves-"and how!"
I was down at St. Joseph's Hospital
shortly after it happened trying to
get a story to file in to Detroit, and
it seemed that no one could tell me
anything. Doctors were still work-
ing on the victims, and the sheriff's
office didn't know much more than
I did.
There was a bunch of soldiers right
behind me, trying to get Custer on
the phone to let them know about
the wreck. I horned in on the con-
versation-seemed like it might be
a good story-and the story they
told me would have raised the hair
off a bald man's head. This is the
way they told it to me ...
THEY were the first to arrive on
the scene: nothing but these two
cars locked dead in the middle of the
road, and bodies around on the high-
way bleeding. Everyone was uncon-
scious. The senior non-com, a De-
troit attorney named Sevald, took
over. He assigned a medical tech-
nician and a medical aide with him
to each car of wounded, and sent the
two privates up the road each way
to block off traffic. They comman-
deered the first car that came along
and sent to Ann Arbor for ambu-
lances.
Meanwhile the two medics admin-
istered what first aid they could in
the middle of that blood-strewn
highway.
Finally an ambulance arrived, and
the medical technician and the in-
terne with the ambulance picked out
those wounded worst and took them
in to St. Joseph's Hospital. All the
way in, and on the second trip of
the ambulance too, that soldier rode
beside one of those colored boys,
holding together the veins in the
wrist, which had been cut by the
accident. After the bodies were
taken away, the other soldiers
helped get the two locked cars out
of the middle of the road, and then
drove back to the hospital, where
they took care of notifying Camp
Custer.
That's the way they told me the
story last night. It was a real story
of bloody American heroism, from
five fellows who had just gone
through a heck of an ordeal. They
were pretty tired last night, but they
had to drive back to camp . . . "to
be getting up at six in the morning
and a hard day's work."
* * * '
AFTER I had gotten their story, I
asked them how they Felt about
being drafted, and all that, sort of
striking up a conversation while we
waited around for word from the
docs. Not so bad, said one, but it's
no picnic, and I'll sure be glad when
it's over.
Then I asked them how they felt

about not getting out after one year.
They didn't have much to say about
that. Just a few Nyords: "we better
not be kept in any longer."
AND MAYBE if the President and
General Marshall and a few of,
the bigwigs who aren't having their
lives busted up by the draft had
heard the way those fellows told me
that story and the way they said "we
better not be kept in any longer"
. . well, maybe it'd be a different'
story down in Washington ... Maybe.
