NEW YORK., July 21_ If there were no great
popular movement in Frane, !le officials of
North Africa would iot be givg that curio s
impression that they are walking stiffly on eggs
toward the future.,
They have tried to make themselves free of
the people. and how unfree they are! Even
Giraud's trip to Washington was a complicated
kind of obeisan e to the people, a sort of dec-
tioneering. He has tried to act independently
of the French resistance movemint, to be
uncontruBled by it, and sri he has bad to cross
an ocean to impress it.,
How tense they are, those who would do w iithi-
eut the people! Ten times day, they pause
unwittingly to bow to the very people they are
trying to do without.
It is so, around the xvorld. Even the harrison
Spangler wing of the Republican pa rty, which
is trying to get around the ptopie's desire for a
more stable world, finds that it lias to work by
agreeing that it wants a more stable world and
by setting up a committee to plan, or something,
for it.
And Governer Bricker of Ohio finds he has
to work for "a retun to local 5i 1 -governWilt
by saying, gulp, that he is in favor of iter-
national cooperalion. N&o this kind, of 'om-M,
hut maybe if here is o other kind, wnyl

rvicerncn vs, Civilians
T IS PLEASING to note that mem-
bers of The Michigan Daily are
interested in such problems as mak-
ing the servicemen on this campus
feel "at home."
There is much validity to the con-
clusion of those who made a recent
survey of servicemen that campus1
students are somewhat "cold" in
their relations with campus service-1
men. But such must be the case.
Wherever large groups of people
congregate, there is always a con-j
siderable number of impersonal re-
lationships. In large groups: im-
personality prevails. On the other{
hand, in small groups, it is possible
to get more personal and friendly;
it is also possible to get to know
almost everyone in the group.
In large groups, it is possible for
an individual to know a limited
number of people. The individual
may have an "inher ring" and an
"outer ring" of friends. Outside of
those rings are the strangers, who
must far outnumber those inside of
the rings.
One may say that the above prin-
ciples may be valid but that they
could not be applied to the Univer-
sity of Michigan. The opposition
could point to the fact that because
both servicemen and civilian stu-
dents are students of the University,
that they therefore have much in
common and thus should be more
I friendly toward each other.
T IS TRUE that Michigan students
have much in common, but still,
the principles that apply to large
groups still prevail. In any group
that numbers in the thousands, even
if the entire group consists of a
single organization that has a given
aim and method, people do not greet
each other with a smile and a "hel-
1o," just on the basis of the fact that
they belong to the same organiza-
tion. This writer recently came here
from a large university in Chicago
Sand has found that the "large group
Iprinciple" applies there as well. as;
here. In fact it applies to any large
University. Another "campus cold-
ness" factor is that there are some
shy students. There are also a few
1 students who develop "pseudo-so-
phisticated" and "blaise" attitudes.
The opposition could also contend
that "doesn't the war make any dif-
ference?" It does, but not enough.
It is unnatural to expect civilian
Ftudents to begin talking to every
serviceman they meet because of
the fact that we are at war. One
nay contend thatthis can be donet
if various campus organizations

I * $,

By Lichty

urge their members to do so. But
to force students to be friendly
would mean that in many cases
their friendly approach would not
be sincere-a fact which would be
disliked by the servicemen as well,
as- the students themselves.
Then what can be done about
helping the serviceman feel "at
home?" Just this-the sponsoring
of social events designed to get civil-
ian students acquainted with ser-
vicemen. And this is already being
done by many campus organizations,
with excellent publicity from The
Michigan Daily. These events are
doing a fine job as an uplifting mor-
ale factor, but they should be in-
creased and expanded. Publicity for
some of these events should be con-
ducted on a larger scale, such as
placing posters or bulletins right in
the servicemen's "ships" or "bar-
racks," since not all servicemen read
The Michigan Daily. It would prob-

ably be a good idea for this paper to
conduct an extensive survey asking
servicemen the type of events they
approve of most, and then seeing
that such events are sponsored.

PX Here?
umn of Sunday's Daily, J. M.
advocates a PX (post exchange)
for the servicemen. Does J.M.
know that the Army has tried to
get a PX here for the men? Does
J.M. know why the Army hasn't
gotten one here?
The reason is that the patriotic
tradesmen of Ann Arbor refuse to
permit a PX here. They would,
of course, lose profits. J.M. sup-
poses that a project like a PX
would require Army sanction. Why
doesn't he ask the Army here
about that?--T.B.

New U iowiiug cR;Of Gas
Equalizes U.S. Bttrden
W HY SOME Midwestern Congressmen should
gripe at a levelling process of gas rationing
when they have enjoyed privileges that the East-
ern states have never had is a question that has
ro answer.
The Eastern seaboard of this country has
had to bear the brunt of gas rationing for a
long time. They were rationed while the Mid-
west and Southwest were still driving merrily
on picnics. They rode bikes and took street-
cars under pleasure driving bans while out
here ars still flocked the roads unmolested.
IFANYBODY has a right to gripe it is the East-
ern States who are at last seeing the Midwest
and Southwest bear its share of the burden.
Just because this part of the country has enjoyed
privileges that it should not have had, in all
fairness, does not entitle it to complain indi-
vidually or collectively when an attempt is about
to be made to equalize the "unfairness," if any
person can call a necessary measure in wartime
by such a name.
The Midwestern Congressmen who are com-
plaining about a diverting of their motor sup-
plies to the East have no kick coming. If
they have to yell about something why don't
they yell about a further equalization of ra-
tioning which will include the west coast,

Lewis Proposes
AFL-UMW Merger
TE COAL MINERS with their sundry prob-
lems probably are not going to be helped by
the newest idea conjured up in the fertile brain
of John L. Lewis.
That notorious potentate of America's min-
ers has decided that it would be advantageous
to his United Mine Workers' Union if it were
to join forces with the American Federation of
Just exactly how he plans to benefit is not
quite clear at the present, but then John L.
Lewis seldom plans anything without knowing
where he is going and how it will affect him and
his union.
Six years ago the UMW was a part of the
Federation, but Lewis split from the craftsmen
and created the now powerful Committee of In-
dustrial Organization. After three years of this,
he tried something new again by placing the
miners in a separate category.
Within the last few months the, American
public has become sick and tired of Lewis and
his threats; while many of the citizens were
sympathetic to the miner's demands, they were
in no mood for a strike during this critical per-
iod of war. And a thoroughly disgusted Con-
gress passed the anti-strike Connally bill.
Just how well Mr. Lewis' new idea will be e-
ceived by the American public will make little
difference to him, but whether or not the pro-
posal goes through will depend upon how well
the tol. officialis can iron out a .urisdictional
At present both rnionst are operating in
several of the same fields. If Lewis volun-
tarily yields to the AFL on the point of who
shall have the final say-so as far as control of

looking at a few copies of the 'Nutoal
Quarte'ly,. a leading B it i Ii Conser'atie
monthly. The latest one was a July' issue.
The magazines were interesting reading. 0O
course, the war news was first but Brih Fem
pire news wasn't far behind. There was an r
title on New Zealand and Australia in wvhich

not establishing a British Information Center

there. The writer claimed that the OW and

istration Congressman) was winning both Aus-
tP alia and New Zealand away from the British
Empire and unless Britain got to work fast there
wouldn't be any Empire in tihe Antilles to salvage.
The writer charged that one of the most
effective American propaganda tricks has been
to rebroadcast prcgrams of Bob Hope to Aus-
tralasia. This Hope fellow, said the writer,
seems to have appealed far more to the rough
and ready Anzacs than the slow type British
The publication, however, did not stop there
in its anti-American tirade. Quoting freely from
the statements of Clare Booth Luce on American
control of the airways, the publication took up
her challenge and said that Britain has and
always will control the main air-routes in West-
ern Europe and will fight, commercially, any
attempts by America to expand.
Another article, also anti-American, was more
liberal. Here America was denounced for sup-
porting decrepit Giraud against TDe "au"le.
A BIT DISGUSTED with the anti-American
tone of the magazine, though I am an ardent
supporter of General DeGaulle, I was about to
put it down when I noticed an article that
praised the United States but vigorously de-
nouneed the Union of South Africa. The article
was, of all things, on the Negro question. The
writer claimed that the South Africans were
unfair and uncultured in forbidding Negro wvori-
ers to join trade iuions and participate in na-
tional life and pointed to America as an example
of a country which was ma king progress along
that line. having the Detroit. riots clearly in
mind, this praise for us seemed rather ironically
Right after that article was aoot lr one

onials in British East Arica who are already
