Cunningham Drug
:helps Hitler
L 4T WEEK there appeared in the
j Ann Arbor News editorial columns a
sample of the type of racial discrimination that
b lies the very foundation of our war aims.
Two ads placed side by side in that paper by
tie Cunningham Drug Co. indicate too clearly
the position of the Negro in America. One ad ran,
"WHITE MEN Needed for Stock Work," and the
/ othor, "COLORED Dishwashers Wanted." The
two ads were alike in makeup except, strangely
enough, no experience was required of the white
men.
Nothing could have illustrated so concisely
the 4egrading role to which the Nego is sub-
jeted in America. He is made to take the
dirtiest jobs. He is made to live in ,the filthi-
est houses and pay exorbitant rents for the
privilege. And here we have an Ann Arbor
firm with, the brazen gall to make itself a
party to this sordid discrimination.
IS IT ANY WONDER that some Negroes
feel only bitterness about the war ef-
ftvrt? It is miserable logic that tells him he
is better off under American rule than he would
bf under the Nazi rule. The mote in Hitler's eye
isno excuse for the beam in ours. An all-out war
effort requires the highest degree of cooperation
and morale on the part of all its peoples. The
Negro wants tangible proof that he is not fight-
ing a white man's war. Talking is no good-the
best way to inspire loyalty is to eliminate the job
discrimintion of companies like the Cunning-
ham Drug. We must show the Negro that we
mean what we say when we preach the catch
phrases of democracy.
If we are fighting this war to make the
world a better place to live in, this t Where
every one of us can do his share whether he
is in uniform or not. It does no good to rail at
the Cunningham Drug Co. for its part in this
rotten discrimination. The fault lies with the
individuals of America. Every little advertise-
nient, every little intolerant word adds fuel to
the fascist fire. It is promoting the very thing
that Hitler claimed would bring the downfall
of America-disunity among her peoples.
MANY NEGROES are being asked to give
their lives for 'all of us. We suffer no
qualms of conscience at asking them for this
supreme sacrifice, but even though they die
for us we are not willing to accord them the de-
cency that is due to every human being. Passing
laws will not rid America of her shame. It is up
to us, as individuals, to uproot these prejudices.
It can be done and some progress has been made
since the war began. But not enough.
Those who truly believe in democracy would
not be capable of such meanness as racial dis-
crimination. Those who do discriminate are al-
lies of Hitler to the extent of their discrimin-
tion.

Bitter Mud-Slinging
Won't Help Jim Farley...
ENIAL JIM FARLEY, the former
hand-shaking postmaster-general of

WASHINGTON-When Lyndon Johnson of
Texas returned from naval duty in Australia to
resume his seat in Congress, the President sub-
jected him to a three-hour cross-examination on
how things were going.
One of the difficulties in fighting the Japs,
Johnson reported, was the superiority of Jap
Zero planes to American fighter planes.
This is due to the fact that the Japs put no
armor on their planes, but risk the life of the
pilot to gain speed and maneuverability. Thus
a Zero fighter can fly higher than an American
pursuit plane, and can maneuver all round it.
Once the two planes go into combat on the same
level, American planes can make mince-meat
out of the Zero, but present U. S. models can-
not follow the Japs into the .high altitudes.
Congressman Johnson reported that a fight
between a Jap Zero and a Navy PBY patrol ship1
(not a fighter plane) was like arace between a
Model T Ford and a Lincoln Zephyr.
Note:-The Army and Navy are now trying to
develop new types of fighter planes, but the
problem always is whether to sacrifice speed or
armor. It is almost impossible to have both.
Vice President's Recreation
On a hot August morning, when residents of
the Wardman Park Hotel had fans turned on
full blast, they looked with surprise to see four
figures come out on the tennis court. They looked
a second time. It was the Vice President and a
party of friends out for a set of doubles.
Henry Wallace took off a pair of slacks, threw
them into a corner, and trotted out onto the
court in white shorts and a white sports shirt. It
was 8 o'clock as the game began.
Wearing no hat or eye-shade, and wielding the
racket in his left hand, Wallace entered into the
game with the gusto of a high school boy. It was
not tennis of professiongl quality, but it was
high class amateur play. Frequently the ball was
returned eght or ten times in a single exchange.
Once when Wallace was at the net, he made five
returns in succession, finally won the point.
At 9:05, the set ended. Wallace retreated to
the corner of the court, pulled on hislacks,
headed back to his apartment for a shower.
Other apartment dwellers, still sitting in front
of the fans, sighed and shook their heads in
wonderment.
Capital Chaff
About ten years ago, the great inventor Thom-
as Edison was visiting the ,great juvenile court
judge, Ben B. Lindsey, and told him of his at-
tempts to develop synthetic rubber. He got noth-
ing but rebuffs, however, from Washington
(Hoover Administration).. .As boys, Edison and
Judge Lindsey's father were operators at the
himself a power in politics that rivals the Pres-
ident. He believes sincerely that he made Roose-
velt what he is today and that he can just as
easily unmake him.
SO OJIM FARLEY this week looked up his
sleeve and broughit out an ace of spades
to help him win this game of state politics
Immediately after Mead described himself
at' a press conference as "the all-out war
candidate" behind whom all groups and persons
solidly supporting the President's war program
could unite, Farley charged Mead of having
made an isolationist speech in 1941 at the same
time that Charles Lindbergh was making sim-
ilar speeches for the America First Committee.
The speech NVV. Farley was referring to was giv-
en, he said, before the National Democratic Club
on Feb. 15, 1941.
"I hereby charge and shall prove out of his
(Mead's) own mouth," Farley said grandly,
"that in this speech Senator Mead, in his en-
deavor to create favorable reaction from his
audience, revealed his true sentiments and by
his own words convicted himself of being an iso-
lationist and not in sympathy with the Presi-
dent's foreign policies."
IT'S TOO BAD Fariey had to go back and
drag out dead issues. The question of isola-
tionism vs. interventionism should have been
buried after the Japaese attack on Pearl,Kar-
bor. It isn't a question anymore of party faction
that the United States is concerned with. It is a
question of who is the best man to do the job.

Senator Mead's record as a liberal politician is
good enough to receive the backing of the New
Deal, and Roosevelt has proved himself by this
time to be the people's leader.
We thought Jim Farley was a bigger man
than he has shown himself to be by his latest
action. If he wants to go on playing politics
during war-time, however, someone might sug-
gest that he be a little more careful in the
future how he wraps up his campaign tricks.
We think it is a little foolish now to bring up
speeches made before the country had td
tighten its belt and learn how to take it. Nor
do we think Senator Mead's speech early in
1941 was quite the isolationist dogma Farley
would have the electorate of New York believe
it was.
Mead said Monday that he wants to be con-
sidered "the candidate of the rank-and-file. The
committee will seek to enable delegates, not yet
elected, to express at the convention the wishes
of the rank-and-file of the party and the con-
,4entsth pe s ." Th,' Pwordsmcr nr tn

same telegraph desks. ..Look for an agreement
with Mexico soon by which it will turn over
most of its rubber production to us. So far Mex-
ico has no restriction on tires or gas, but will
impose restrictions to help its good neighbor-
the one-time "Colossus of, the North". . .The
State Department has ruled that it is not reveal-
ing diplomatic secrets to report that while King
Peter of Jugoslavia and the President of the
United States were viewing "Tortilla Flat," Sen-
ator Austin of Vermont and Admiral King, Chief
of the U. S. Fleet, also viewing the movie, fell
asleep. . .The State Department objects to pub-
lication of most news-connected with diplomatic
discussions.
Resort Air Bases
The $975,000,000 appropriation for additional
Navy public works encountered littleĀ° opposition
on the House floor, but tiere was a battle royal
when the Naval Kffairs Committee considered it
behind closed doors. The question at issue was
placing too many /naval air bases in Florida and
chairman Carl Vinson of Georgia did some ex-
ploding on the subject.,
"Why do you fellows always center your activ-
ities in resort areas?" Vinson bluntly asked'
Navy officers who testified for the appropriation.'
"In the old days, the fleet used to be based at
Newport, and later it was moved to Coronado
Beach, Calif., another society mecca. Now the
Jig accent is on Florida.
"You have so many air bases in Florida that
if an airplane flying over the State had to make
a forced landing, it would be almost sure to land
on a Navy field."
"We have to train pilots as fast as possible,"
explained Comdr. J. B. Moss, chief of Shore Es-
tablishments in the Bureau of Aeronautics.
"Therefore, we have to pick a place for training
where weather conditions are good, so we won't
lose any time."
"What about all these operational bases you
have in Florida, where pilots are supposed to be
trained to fly in all kinds of weather? shot back
Vinson. "It's beyond me how you can give them
that kind of training in a place where weather
conditions usually are ideal."
Vinson shot a side glance at 'Rear Admiral Ben
Moreell, chief of the Bureau of Yards and Docks,
who was listening to the cross-examination..
Moss squirmed, made no direct reply.
"Well, my only hope is that our Navy pilots
encounter the same kind of weather conditions
in actual combat that they have experienced
during their training period in Florida," contin-
ued Vinson, "otherwise, they're going to be in a
bad fix."

Old Imperialism Vs. New
Financial imperialism has long
been considered the chief demon in
international affairs. Though con-
quest may be undertaken for non-
economic reasons, it has in recent
years become colored and chiefly de-
termined by economic interest-or
supposed economic interest.
In this phase, imperialism is an
expression of the same financil
technique that leads to monopoly in
domestic affairs. At home, business-
men and investors are frequently notj

DRAMA

George Bernard Shaw has never been noted
for his silence and his plays are much like the
far-famed beard, constantly moving only
through the force of his jaw.
"Misalliance" was like all the rest of Shaw's
plays in this respect and worse in others. There
is an inexcusable lack of the action that makes
a play grip or even hold its audience. Only
highly emotional plays can go through two talk-
ative acts and still survive. A comedy dependent
upon wit can't do it, and although you are will-
ing to stay alert, on the ready for Shaw's mots
for'a while, you can't do it forever.
One of Shaw's better characters,-the under-
wear tycoon's daughter, sums it up all too con-
sciously, "All we do is talk, talk, talk, talk!
Nothing ever happens."
Of course a sly old character like Shaw would
never forgive a reviewer that refuses to recognize
that Shaw knows all the foregoing and just did
it for a trick. What Mr. Shaw is not conscious
of is that the trick was not worth it, and never
so hugely funny as he seemed to think it might
turn out to be.
Naturally the almighty and seemingly eternal
Shaw can't go through two long acts without
striking off sparks that are worth a mild fire or
at least good enough to light a cigarette of
thought. But his sly remarks in this comedy
aren't enough for the most easily satisfied critic.
The production is also something less than
the Repertory Players are capable of. The actors
in many cases pose as wits instead of as witty
people, and I assure you that there is a vast dif-
ference. Too, they shoot lines at each other as
weapons. Not as spears to be avoided, but as
something to be caught and returned deftly.
They wait for the witty answer to come, and
sometimes Mr. Shaw sadly disappoints them.
Acting honors, what there are of them, go to
the low-class intruder Julius Baker as played by
Jack Ulanoff. When he enters in a speaking role
in the second act the comedy for a minute
catches fire and is genuinely entertaining. A
stock character, old G. B. puts him in a highly
unstock situation with amusing results until all
tpe funniness is gradually talked out. 'Shaw al-
hough more guilty of the fault in the first act.
continues in the second act to create genuinely
amusing situations only to wear them out with
his infernal tendency to talk all the way around
a point until there is nothing left for the audi-

V
should be filed in the Secretary's Of-
fice at once.
The final day for dropping courses
without record will be Saturday,
August 8. A course may be dropped
only with the permission of the
classifier, after conference with the
instructor.
Candidates for the Teacher's Cer-
tificate for August or September,
1942 are requested to call at the
office of the School of Education be-
fore August 10 to take the Teacher
