Henry Wallace For
Presiden In 1944 . .
SUPERFICIALLY this country is
united. But under the guise of na-
tional amity, politicos still tread their well-worn,
if idevious paths of opportunism; and since we
remain a functioning democracy, 1944 looms as
a fateful, ominously decisive year. The GOP
even now is groping for some cosmic issue with
which to conront our eleatorate and consider-,
ably before November 'two years hence.
So it is far from premature to begin a scrutiny
of presidential timber. Besides Mr. Roosevelt,
whose fourth term" is an unknown quantity,
and Wendell Willkie, who will be a candidate
op some ticket comerhell or high water, one man
*stends out, infinitely above all others. He is
modest, devout, eloquent Henry Agard Wallace-
as true an ,apostle of democracy as our times
hgve produced:. o single voice has been raised
with such earnestness or clarity as his in giving
golden utterance to the war aims of the United
N4ations. Few vice-presidents have been so active
as he in all American history, none so practical
in attaining their ends.
*11E need but hearken back to the days when,
mainly as a result of Wallace's handiwork,
the rehabilitation of America's drought and
poverty ridden farmer was brought about. Or
more recently, the State Department's rap-
prochement with Mexico was in a great measure
due to a consummate bit of single-handed vice-
presidential diplomacy. Henry Wallace has al-
ways actively fostered better inter-American
relations.
Here then is a man who combines the human-
itarianism of a Roosevelt with the erudition of a
Wilson. Indeed, his books constitute one of the
most lucid interpretations of global economic
forces now available.
Isn't this the kind of statesman we need in
the White House during a post-war era pre-
dominantly economic in pits reconstructive
problems? By then we of the United States
should be up to Woodrow Wilson, although
twenty-five years ago he was, idealogically,
oceans ahead of us, his constituency, and the
world. Wallace embodies the 1942 brand of
,New freedom.
ET US SMASH the precedent that so long has
plagued us of electing misfit mediocrities to
high office after every major war. Our post-
war problems this time will be as complex
as they are now incalculable. A man of Henry
Wallace's caliber, whose realm is above petty
politics, of deep sensitivity and foresight, of in-
corruptibility and intellectual background-only
such an individual will be able to cope with, no
]ass solve the perplexities of tomorrow.
Soon the American public-or that segment
of which votes-will have to decide between
- the ghost of Harding and the shade of Wilson.
One can even see a reincarnation of General
Grant in the person of a now nearly deified
MacArthur. Now is the time to weigh his in-
adequacies and those of "Buster" Dewey and
those of Rushvllle's Barefoot Boy from Wall
Street as against the brightest political lumi-
nary to rise on the executive horizon. Wallace
in 1944 and damn precedent.
- Bernard Rosenberg
Second Front Is

WASHINGTON-While most people have
their eyes glued on crucial events in the Near
East, the politicos of the Country have their eyes
glued on the New York governorship. They know
that the man who gets this key post may be the
next president of the United States, and in any
event will control New York's big block of votes
at the national convention.
For instance, Herbert Hoover was dining with
a'friend in New York the other night and was
asked what he was doing in the East.
The ex-President replied that he was working
for the nomination and election of Tom Dewey
as governor of New York.
"I thought I heard you say a couple of years
ago that in no event should Tom Dewey occupy
public office," remarked the friend.
Hoover replied: "Yes, but if Tom Dewey should
be elected, I can, through him, dominate the
Republican organization and the presidential
nomination in 1944. On the other hand, if Wen-
dell Willkie prevents his nomination, or if he is
nominated and not elected, then Wendell Willkie
would dominate the situation. And I am out to
do everything I can to prevent that.
Note: Realizing the crucial political question
to be decided inNew York, Roosevelt' has given
the private nod to Senator Jim Mead, who, al-
though previously not anxious to run, will do so
with the President's full backing. With this
backing, and Willkie's tacit support in the back-
ground, White House advisers believe Mead can
beat Dewey-though the race should -be ex-
tremely close.
Jfp Weakness
Since his return from active duty with the
Pacific fleet, young Representative Warren Mag-
nuson of Washington has been asked many
times, "What is your impression of the Japa-
nese?" Here's his reply:
"I have lived among the Japs on thePacific
Coast and I have seen them in battle. They are
pretty tough. One thing to remember is that
they have been preparing for this war 20 years.
That's apparent in their battle maneuvers.
"They lay out a plan. It is usuallya good one,
and they will go to their deaths to carry it out.
'But here is what is going to whip them. If some-
thing goes wrong along the way, if something
unexpected occurs, or if something happens that
is not in the book, they don't know what to do.
"They require another huddle before they can
go ahead with another plan. Coral Sea-and Mid-
way demonstrated that. What is going to whip
the Japs in the long run is .good old-fashioned
Yankee ingenuity.",
Draft Test
Congress recently amended the draft law, lay-
ing down clear-cut principles regarding the pre-
viously confused question of dependency. The
express purpose of the revised law is to delay
the 'drafting of married men and men with de-
pendents until all other categories have been
exhausted.
Yet today many local draft boards continue to
order married men and men with dependents
to report for induction.
This is not entirely the fault of these boards.
They are given monthly quotas to fill and -are
pressured to fill them promptly. The fault is
with the Selective Service administration in
Washington, which has not yet taken measures
Mess a new front is oPtned England and the
United States may find themselves facing the
undivided strength of an entrenched Germany
at a date now set for the crushing of the Nazis.
Russia's situation is as desperate now as at
any tune since the beginning of the war. The
Nazis have resumed the initiative all along the
line, claim control of the Crimea and are at-
tacking in strength on all fronts. The German
southern offensive is pushing close to Voroneh,
endangering the vital Moscow-Rostov railway
connecting the Soviet armies in the north and
south and threatening the water communication
on the Don.
THE ENEMY is still within 75 miles of Alex-
andriaand is a definite threat to tlat city,
the Suez and control of the Mediterranean. A
successful push to the Suez would give them the
oil fields of Iraq and might drive the British
fleet out of the Mediterranean.
So waiting until the United Nations in all

their might can unleash a terrific attack on
Europe using a long stored and prepared pool
of fighting power is impossible. The war must
be fought today, with what we have today, and
with everything we have today. And that in-
cludes the more than 3,000,000 men in England
waiting and anxious to get into the fight.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to believe that military
leaders would consciously and directly plan
to let other nations bear the brunt of the attack
until a vitiated Germany became easy meat for
an invasion attempt. 'But it is perfectly con-
ceivable that they would wait too long-"too
little and too late" are sorrowful cliches-for
the time when a greatly strengthened Allied
force could take the field.
-But even if the esoteric reasoning of the war
heads makes sense, and even if the attack should
fall short of the successful invasion mark, it
should be attempted. The cost would undoubt-
edly be great, but, to this swivel-chair strategist,
worthwhile. The resulting shifting of Nazi
strength might keep Russia in the war and the
Suez in our hands.

to ensure uniform application of the draft law
throughout the country.
This failure of Selective Service is due pri-
marily to one key deficiency-the fact that al-
though the draft law has been in operation
nearly two years, Selective Service still does not
have dependable statistical data on the nation's
military manpower. Selective Service, is still
issuing blanket quota orders without detailed
information on the manpower available in the
local draft districts.'
That is why some draft boards are compelled
to call up married men and men with de-
pendents, while in other sections unencumbered
draft-age eligibles are still awaiting induction.
Comprehensive statistical data would avoid
such inequalities and make possible a uniform
induction system. That was the purpose of the
amendments passed by Congress. But it won't
be accomplished until Selective Service bestirs
itself and secures statistical information.
With a few minor exceptions, the local draft
boards are made up of patriotic and conscien-
tious men who work long hours without com-
pensation. Each month they are confronted
with a quota, set by Selective Service, which
theymust fill in. order to provide the Army with
the men it urgently needs.
The draft boards labor earnestly to be Tair in
deciding who should be inductqd. 'It is not their
fault if they have to order married men drafted
to fill a quota while other boards have an excess
of unencumbered eligibles.
It is the fault of Selective Service, and the
time is long past due when it should put an end
to such an inequitable system.
'V'Cards
Forty-six senators and 212 representatives have
been revealed as "X" card holders. The list in-
cluded such famed economy clamorers as Sena-
tor Tydings of Maryland and Representatives
Rich of Pennsylvania, Crawford of Michigan
and Cgx of Georgia. Also, isolationist general-
issimo Senator Burt Wheeler. "
However, one Capitol big-shot who was in on
the "X" card foray, somehow escaped disclosure.
He is white-thatched Chesley W. Jurney, Ser-
geant-at-Arms of the Senate.
Jurney not only has access to an unlimited
gas supply, but he gets the gas free. Further, he
is ferried around by a chauffeur (listed on the
Senate payroll as a "janitor") in a sumptuous
limousine, also furnished free.
DRAMA
The Michigan Repertory Players are offering
a very pleasant production of Richard Sheridan's'
apparently imperishable play, "The Rivals," at
the Lydia Mendelssoh Theatre this week, snd
if you are weary of headlines and the troubles
of this world, then you should, by all means,
hasten there at once. Those who feel a particu-
lar affection for the play itself should have no
fears, for it is done with gay reverence and is
only slightly tattered by a not too astute cutting
job.
Think of "The Rivals" and you think of Mrs.
Malaprop. 0r at least you should. For Mrs.
Malaprop, the 'lady with the desperately fey
tongue is, of course, the chief reason for the
eternal popularity of "The Rivals." The revival
at the Mendelssohn is fortunate, indeed, to be
offering a court of hearing for an expert inter-
pretation of that grand lady's verbal desecra-
tions. Claribel Baird takes Mrs. Malaprop serene-
ly in hand, rolls.the dreadful language smoothly
and with delightful nonchalance from her
tongue and, with an agreeable and entirely un-
comprehending nod of her head, sweeps about
the stage in as charming and ingratiating a
manner as you could wish. She has made of her
Mrs. Malaprop a bright and glowing delight. '
William Altman acts Sir Anthony Absolute
with commanding skill. He wears his age with
dignity and indulges in those unfortunate skir-
mishes of the aged with with intelligence and a
fine sense of moderation. His overtones of sly
humor and his volcanic rages give texture to the
role and rob it of any last lingering unreality.
Jim Bob Stephenson wisely plays the dashing

and bedeviled Captain Absolute calmly and with
style. William Kinzer's Bob Acres pleased the
audience, although it had in it just a dash too
much of agility to suit this jaundiced taste.
Helen Rhodes as Lydia, the circulating library's
staff and comforter, looked lovely and more im-
portant, perhaps, acted with considerable cun-
ning. The Lucy of Judy Fletcher was neither
too arch nor too pallid and at the same time ex-
tremely appetizing. The rest of the cast ranged
from competent to adequate.
Technically, the production was, for the most
part, happy. Lucy Barton's costumes were de-
lightful, apparently authentic, and extremely
easy on the eye. The only difficulty with them
was that, except for the final scene of the play,
they were in a constant, if minor, duel with the
scenery. The scenery, scant yet tasteful when
viewed alone, evidently endeavored to capture
the quality of an old theatre print but unfor-
tunately refused to accept its alloted position as
subordinate to the actors. The screens for Mrs.
Malaprop's home and especially those at Acre's
lodgings were nervously jumpy and made this
unfortunately unhardy witness clear his throat
