NIGHT EDITOR: JOHN BRLEWINE

Daily are written by members of The Daily

Prof. Goddard - Example
For The Community...
V ERY FEW EDITORIALS are written
about deaths anymore. The old and
s4cred custom seems to have gone out of fashion
ecept in the case of war heroes. Perhaps its
disappearance is justified in many cases, but
when a man dies who has done so much right
and good as Prof.-Emeritus Edwin A. Goddard
the story of his life should be told if only to im-
pf'ess the example set by such a man. The de-
scription of such a man can do far more for
justice than theoretical argument about what is
wrong and right in the world.
Professor Goddard lived as full a personal life
as it is possible for a man to have, and yet he
devoted most of the hours of that life to the
community and the University.
He was a teacher, scholar, and author of the
first rank. An instructor for five years and a law
professor for 35 more, Professor Goddard did
not let his interests in students end in the
class room. He and the late Mrs. Goddard helped
students of widely different nationalities work
their way through school by furnishing free
board and room. When the Goddards built a
larger home, they had a special room with a
private entrance constructed in which students
could live.
He was no less proficient as a scholar than as
a teacher, winning a Phi Beta Kappa key as a
bachelor of philosophy and being elected to the
Order of the Coif in law school. His books in-
clude works on various phases of law such as
real property and bailments, but he is also
author of a trigonometry text and various legal
dissertations.
But it was more as a member of the com-
munity that Professor Goddard lived as an ex-
ample to all who knew him.
He never hesitated to undertake any project
which would prove beneficial to Ann Arbor or
to the nation. At the time of his death, although
77 years old and in gradually failing health,
he served the nation and hi community as a
member of the local draft board, a board with
an established reputation for fairmindedness
He was so active in every phase of community
life that only a partial list of his activities can
he listed, while many more must go unrecorded
-remembered only by those who benefited from
his aid.
Proffessor Goddard was at the time of his
death a member of the city park board, and
had been extremely active in the development
qf the extensive playground recreation program
qarried on by the city. So interested did he be-
come in providing, additional opportunities for
the young people of Ann Arbor that he donated
the land which enabled the city to complete
riverside Park.
A charter member of the Community Fund
Association, a member of the board of educa-
tion,.a member of the board of trustees for the
Y.M.C.A., he was also a member of the original
committee to promote the ideas now incorpor-
ated In the Huron-Clinton valley recreation
plan.
The list of activities go on and on. But these
indicate the kind of life-long service which Pro-
fessor Goddard dedicated to his neighbors.
The life of Professor Goddard has so many
far-reaching and important implications that
they cannot be discussed in so brief a space.
but implicit in that life is the most important
lesson of all:

WASHINGTON-Argentina-United States re-
lations, already sour, are not being improved by
a tug of war over South America's rubber sup-
ply. While United States officials are signing up
the Good Neighbors to deliver all exportable rub-
ber to us, Argentina is trying to short-circuit
these agreements. "
In both Ecuador and Bolivia this competition
has reached the stage of impolite, bare-knuckle
diplomacy.
On July 2 and 3, the Government of Ecuador
issued export licenses for shipment of 175 tons
of rubber to Argentina. Five days later, July 8,
the United States concluded an exclusive pur-
chasing agreement with Ecuador, and its Gov-
ernment issued a decree prohibiting further ex-
ports of rubber to any country except the United
States.
Just at that time, an Argentine ship arrived
to take the Ecuadorean rubber, only to find that
the "gringo" from Washington (the local repre-
sentative of Rubber Reserve Co.) had already
bought the rubber, according to the terms of the
new rubber agreement.
But the Argentine Government protested that
this shipment had been consigned to them be-
fore the agreement went into effect. A triangular
conflict has resulted, in which Jesse Jones's man
sits tight saying, "Possession is nine points of the
law."
Bolivia has made a similar exclusive agree-
ment with the United States, but while negotia-
tions were going on, the Bolivian Foreign Minis-
ter reported that the Argentine Government
threatened to stop all flow of materials from
Argentina to Bolivia, if Bolivia stopped the sale
of rubber to Argentina. This is very serious, since
Bolivia, cut off from the sea, must do business
through Argentina.
The War for rubber is continuing.
New Army Shoes
THE ARMY will soon walk on less rubber so it
will have more rubber to ride on.
To this end the Quartermaster Corps is chang-
ing the construction of Army shoes. Beginning
this month, all composition soles in Army Ser-
vice shoes will be made without any crude rub-
ber, and will contain 10 per cent of uncured tire
scrap instead.
Formerly, there was 1/4 pound of crude rubber
per shoe, and the saving amounts to a tremen-
dous figure in the millions of Army shoes.
The Quartermaster also will effect a saving of
reclaimed rubber by using less of this product,
substituting a preparation called carbon black,
which is derived from petroleum or coal.
T ar Bonds
WAR SAVINGS BOND salesman in Buchan-
an County, Iowa, was nlonplussed when the
spokesman for a colony of 75 families flatly re-
fused to buy even so much as a 10-cent Stamp...
The salesman was about to leave, but was called
back and handed $6,450 in cash as-the colony's
donation to the war effort.. .Seeking an explan-
ation, the bewildered bond seller was told that
the community was composd of Amish families
Good Citizens
Should Enter Politics .. .
SOMETHING VERY ODD is happen-
ing to our poltical life and the
symptoms are becoming more pronounced with
every election. The ideals we are fighting to pre-
serve are being undermined from within by ridi-
cule and mismanagement.
One of our prime possessions is our right to
elect public officials. Once elected we reserve
the right to criticize them. This is necessary;
growth and improvement are most often stimu-
lated by criticism. But too often the public
rashly abuses politics and politicians without
offering any solution to the problem.
We criticize because we are irritated with Con-
gress' incompetence, but no one seems con-
cerned enough to do anything about it. We as
college students, can excuse ourselves because
of age. But when the present group of students
are successful in various careers and businesses

just how many are going to be willing to leave
all they have built up for participation in gov-
ernment?
WE NEED TO REPLACE our present leaders
with men who are successes. economically
and socially, in their private worlds. The char-
ter members of the chamber of commerce and
the rotary club are not our "best citizens" if
they shun politics.
There is also a trend becoming evident, of
qualified office holders leaving their positions
for more important duties in the Army or Navy.
B t what is more important than good gov-
ernment? Certainly, senators, governors and
judges are more important to the nation in that
capacity than as lieutenant-commanders.
We are fighting to preserve our form of gov-
ernment, yet we have trouble finding competent
people who are willing to govern. Politics has
become synondmous with distaste and humor
to most people.
ABUSES and bad practices have given politics
a rather peculiar odor in most communities.
But the conscientious citizen should not ignore

and that their religious creed forbids them to
make a profit out of war ...They were willng to
make a gift of the money, but could not buy in-
terest-bearing bonds. . .The infantry company
at Fort Devens, Mass., boasts that every member
of the company is buying War Bonds, and it is
101 per cent correct. . .Not satisfied with 100 per
cent participation in the War Savings campaign,
the doughboys bought a $25 bond for their mas-
cot, Blackout, a tiny black dog. . .When Black-
out's bond comes due, the money will go to the
S.P.C.A.
Dies Committee
REPRESENTATIVE MARTIN DIES always is
able to get resolutions passed extending the
life of his investigating committee by whopping
majorities, but he seldom wins a battle with the
House Accounts committee.
Accounts Chairman Jack Cochran of Missouri,
a militant foe of Dies, usually sees to that.
Dies' most recent tiff with Cochran was over
some additional funds the Texan requested for
"administrative expenses." The Accounts com-
mittee considered this behind closed doors. Dies
himself did not attend, but Representative Joe
Starnes of Alabama, Number Two man on the
un-American committee, was there-also, sev-
eral supporters of the committee, including Rep-
resentative Frank Boykin of Alabama.
One of the things Starnes and Boykin argued
for was a salary boost for Robert Stripling, the
committee's young chief investigator. Boykin
eloquently maintained that Stripling "frequent-
ly works seven days a week and has a staff of
40 people under him," but hadn't received a pay
boost in three years.
"Yes, but he's already making $400 a month,
and you want us to raise him $50 a month more,"
shot back Cochran. "That's an awful lot of mon-
ey for a man who used to be a $150-a-month
clerk."
"Why, what are you talking about, Jack?" re-
torted Boykin. "You and I are making $10,000 a
year, but you used to be a $125-a-month clerk on
Capitol Hill and I well remember the time I was
a 35-cents-a-day water boy and figured I was
rich."
But Cochran refused to budge and Stripling's
salary was not increased.

Dominic Says
TOT ALL EDUCATION serves a wise
purpose. Truth in the control of
goodness is one thing, while truth in the hands
of evil is sonething different. As Jesus finished
a lesson on the highway one day with "Thou
shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
strength, and mind, and thy neighbor as thy-
self", a lawyer standing on the fringe of his sem-
inar, asked "Who is my neighbor?" Jesus gave
his analysis.
Knowing that every lawyer must have a case,
Jesus gave the story of the Good Samaritan
(Luke X: 25-37). All the "right people", the
mayor, an elder in the church, and the chief
teacher of the school were shown to "by-pass'
their opportunity while a fellow-citizen, in the
course of customary social practice, was wound-
ed. Then a sympathetic ethical stranger, a half-
breed Samaritan, came along and met the situa-
tion, caused his remedy to fit the disease, per-
formed his neighborly act with simplicity and
went on to his own work.
IF THE CASE were to be taken from Michigan
life in our troubled decade, it would have in-
volved socially complex institutions, not a man
on a mule. The "right people", the churchmen
and the professors who are passing by their op-
portunity could be found. Likewise, the sympa-
thetic ethical men of imagination and high so-
cial purpose, perhaps a despised federal agent,
some expert from afar, a radical without honor
in his home town, or a black citizen in a white
ward. It would be easy to make local applica-
tions, but there are three issues here.
First, insight is essential if we would be neigh-

borly, in a swift-moving panorama of world
events, and he is most apt to properly use truth
who is alert to the best practices in the area
involved. Let no modern citizen think he is
Christian when he over-simplifies a problem or
evades it or substitutes religious isolation for
prayerful performance.,
SECOND, RESPONSIBILITY is mine, in ref-
erence to every creative gift. The laboratory
scientist, cannot pass all social responsibility to
the field engineer, the engineer pass it to the city
official, the city official pass it to the social
worker, the social worker pass it to the religious
leader, and the religious leader pass it to Deity
without landing our culture in the abyss. Re-
sponsibility is all up and down this line of tech-
nicians. A new neighborliness is long overdue.
