By The Associated PressA
WASHINGTON, July 23-Republi-
can party leaders announced today
they will meet September 6 and 7 at
Mackinac Island, to lay the founda-
Lion for what may turn out to be
the nucleus of a party platform for
First Meeting of War Council
It will be the first meeting of the
full Republican Postwar Advisory
Council of 49, composed of. governors,
legislators and- national committee
members, which National Chairman
Harrison E. Spangler organized last

"Personally," Spangler said today,
"I have no doubt that these leaders
of the Republican Party will present
to the nation a program for inter-
national cooperation that will be a
beacon of future peace to all the
peoples of the globe."
The party chairman also pro-
vided an advance insight into the
prime subjects that will be dealt
with' in the GOP platform-next
year. He said research material is
being gathered to be turned over
to subcommittees which the Mac-
kinac meeting will appoint to con-

peacetime production.

armed forces..

lining of government departments

Spangler said the Mackinac meet-
ing would be the first of a series and
that the Labor Day date had been
selected to permit Senate and House
members of the council to attend on
their way back for the reconvening
of Congress September 14.
Recommendations of the council
will be turned over to the 1944 Na-
tional Convention's Resolutions
"From this council of experi-
enced legislators and executives,"
Chairman Spangler said, "will be-
gin to flow the program upon
which America will depend for
guidance in the years ahead.
There seems to be little doubt now
that next year the voters of this
country will turn to the Republi-
can Party for leadership out of the
morass into which the New Deal
has led us.
"These problems are both interna-
tional and domestic. By approaching
them realistically and courageously,
with the support of a United Repub-
lican Party, the council will provide
the type of strong leadership which
America needs and demands."

Many of our modern customs, as
has been frequently and aptly point-
ed out, are derivations of ancient
practices. Tipping the hat origin-
ally consisted of one knight flipping
open his helmet visor as a token of
friendship when greeting another
metal clad adventurer, during the
early stages of chivalry.
The gratuitous offering, or social
bribe, commonly termed a tip, saw
its birth some years back, in the
18th century night clubs and the
like. Taken individually, tip repre-

'Whistling' Is Untraceable
Many such illustrations stand as
glowing tributes to diligent "habits"
researchists. However, there still re-
mains an untraceable custom which
has grown to tremendous proportions
within the past several years.
How and when did the boys start
whistling at the girls? Why did
the girls begin whistling back?
According to certain rare docu-
ments, unavailable for general use
at the present time, this practice or-
iginated at several points across the
earth, thousands of years ago. It
seems that one of the well-known
Pithicantropus-Erectus, or Cave Man,
was not fully equipped with speaking
tubes. Unable to call his wife when
he so desired, and too lazy to send
a carved rock message, he whistled
a note common only to him. His
wife came post haste!
His Example Followed
Generation after generation fol-
lowed his example, creating among
the male offspring a superiority com-
plex. From moistening the lips be-
fore pursing them arose the phrase
"wetting his whistle."
Obviously, the setup was ideal.
A man had but to whistle if he
wanted his wife. It was only natu-
ral that some more intelligent gen-
tleman sooner or later apply identi-
cal tactics to unattached females.
So it came to pass that chirping
at a girl on the street was intended
for said girl to halt immediately,
join the canary and discuss such in-
terest as they might have in common.
Many beautiful friendships resulted.
Suffrage Rears Its Head
There has been a great transition
lately, however. The whistle no longer
holds its initial significance. Defin-
itely an outcome of woman suffrage,
it is now far from an uncommon
occurrence to whistle at a represen-
tative of feminine pulchritude and
have her pipe right back with alac-
The' other evening, while enjoy-
ing my pipe on the Alpha Delta
Phi porch, in conversation with
several compatriots, I was amazed
to see a young lady deliberately
stop, face us, place the thumb and
middle finger of the right hand
between her teeth and emit a loud,
provocative whistle. We' recovered
some moments later, but she had
Undoubtedly, the opposite sex is
out for revenge; to satisfy a frus-
trated desire that must have rankled
for centuries. They have thrown up
bulwarks on street corners and are
firing assorted whistles from the or-
dinary mmmm-mmmmm variety, to
the more social Morton Gould "Pa-
vanne." Who said this was a man's
world? I

Political Battle
Is Brewing
In England
Observer Says Struggle
For Power Will Not
Begin Until after War
Editor's note: E. C. Daniel has said
there will be no political shake-up,in
England until the war is over. But
there is no truce on political maneuv-
ering, as he shows in' the following
article on how the parties are lining
up for the fight when it does come.
Associated Press Correspondent
LONDON, July 23-Behind the
battle scences, the greatest struggle
for power in 20 years has started in
British politics.
The outcome will determine not
only which parties and men will dic-
tate the domestic reconstruction of
Britain but the nature of its foreign
commitments as well. As in the
United States, it is a struggle not
only between parties but also within
Prime Minister Winston Church-
ill's Conservative party, with 365
seats in the House of Commons, is
the dominant party of the moment in
Britain. The Laborites hold 166 seats.
Truce Maintains Government
These two principal parties are
united with the Liberal Party in a
wartime coalition government, main-
tained by a political truce.
Under the truce the parties
have agreed not to campaign for
each other's seats, and thus have
frozen representation in parlia-,
ment for the duration. No general
election has been held since 1935.
Nevertheless, there has been a
one-third turnover in the House of
Commons membership as a result
of deaths and resignations. It is
in the elections for these vacancies
that the truce operates.
The Labor party conference in
June, although voting seven . to one
to continue the coalition, gave notice
that, if and when the truce is.abro-
gated, it will go to the polls to fight
for outright control, wih it has
not had since 1931, when Ramsey
MacDonald formed its first national
Struggle Confined to Parties
Meanwhile, the struggle for power
is confined within the parties, and
it will.be on lines forged.in this in-
tra-party strife that the post-war
battle for votes will be fought.
Outwardly, the _ Conservatives
appear more united and confident
than their competitors. They ex-
pect to run as the party which
won the war and so deserves to
frame the peace.
As the party of the industrialists,
financiers, aristocrats and landown-
ers as well as the middle class, the
Conservative party has been accused
by its opponents .of seeking only to
return to a postwar status quo.
To its opponents that means the
unemployment of the early '30s, the
blind fear of Russia which prevented
a coalition against Fascism, the ap-
peasement of Munich, the unpre-
paredness of Chamberlain, penny
pinching on social security, big busi-
ness dictation of trade policies, col-
onial exploitation and Britain's own
brand of isolationism..'
Education Move Proposed
As the first of government reforms,
a move to broaden educational op-
portunities has been put forward.
The magazine New Statesman and
Nation has declared that conserva-
tive obstructionism could be shat-
tered only by Churchill of the Labor

party. Its obvious hope was that
labor would strike the blow.
Four months later the New
Statesman virtually acknowledged
that Churchill had got in the first

lick with his four-year plan fort
transition from war to interna-1
tional collaboration to maintain 1
the peace.,
Three months later this diagnosis
was strongly. reinforced by compari-
son of the labor program with
Except for labor's demands for
additional socialimation of primary
resources, they are remarkably
similar. Churchill has employed the
tried and true Tory tactic of taking
over and toning down socialist
ideas. The Tories' intention, said
Harold J. Laski, Labor's leading
philosopher, was to .use Churchill
to destroy liberalism.
There had already started what
the economist called "a battle for
the soul of the Labor party."
Public Though Goes Leftist
Nearly all the left-wing British
politicians, . wishfully thinking or
otherwise, were finding a leftist trend
in public - thought. With victory at
least in prospect they had observed
the minds of soldiers and workers

turning from the issues of war to the
personal problems of peace-jobs,
homes, security. They fear the Labor
party is not capable of winning' the
confidence and votes of these people,
Loudest of all, brash Aneurin
Be vin has repeatedly advocated
ending the election truce and
fighting It out with the Tories.
Rejecting Bevin's proposed'
"coalition of the left," the con-
ference supported the truce.
Servicemen Are Invited

The University USO will sponsor a
dance-for servicemen to be held from
7:30 p.m. to midnight today in the
Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo rooms

bridge, and other informal games
will be the feature attractions in the'

Upshur, Paddock Killed in Crash

Maj.-Gen. William P. Upshur (left), commander of the Marines in
the Pacific area, and Captain Charles Paddock of the Marines,
were reported killed Wednesday in an airplane crash near Sitka,
Alaska. Paddock was a former United States sprint star and winner of
the Olympic games. The crash in which the two lost their lives is being
investigated by the Navy to determine the cause of the accident.
