Irreconeilable GOP
ONE of the most ridiculous of the Republican
campaign tactics is the attempt to make an
issue of disunity in the Democratic party.
The reactionary Republican press howls with
glee at the Texas and South Carolina revolts.
Hosts of fair weather friends defend Senator
Barkleys in his short-lived choleric burst at the
president's tax veto. Not so veiled rumors are
spread about other suggested disagreements,
grievances and revolts of the Southern Demo-
crats against the New Deal.
But actions belie Republican assertions. The
recent primaries have eliminated such Demo-
cratic intransegents as Joe -Starnes, Dies and
"Cotton Ed" Smith and others. And the ardent
southern New Dealers, Hill and Pepper, have
been renominated. The Texans seem reconciled
by the vice-presidential compromise-substitut-
ing the liberal Truman for the higher-liberal
Wallace. And generally the Democrats are iron-
ing out their difficulties with only a little if any
sacrifice of essential principles.
BUT on the other side of the fence the Repub-
lican irredentalists must be considered. The
young Republicans are having a hard time try-
ing to swallow their heritage of Old Guard
reaction, isolationism and bigotry. Dewey must
consistently guard against his esteemed running
mate's rather shady past connections. The G.
L. K. Smith incident probably won't (be the
last. Ham Fish's renomination won't bolster
the fine Republican anti-discrimination declara-
Not even by the nomination of Dewey, a man
with no .stated political philosophy as yet,
but with a New York governorship record blight-
ed by negativisnm and hyperconservatism, can the
Republicans hope to reconcile their irreconcil-

W ASHINGTON, Aug. 5-Air forces commander
General "Hap" Arnold may not know it,
but he is facing a regular cloudburst from Capi-
tol Hill as soon as Congress gets back to a
full-time job.
The Congressmen are up in arms over Ar-
nold's efforts to sidetrack the law by continu-
ing to use the WASPS while more than 5,000
trained men pilots, each with an average of
1250 flying hours, remain idle. All this has
happened after Congress refused to let the
WASPS be incorporated into the regular
Fact is that the Government has spent more,
than $21,000,000 training lady flyers, primarily
at the behest of vivacious aviatrix Jacquelin
Cochran, wife of financial magnate Floyd Od-
lun. Magnetic Miss Cochran seems to have
quite a drag with the Brass Hats and has even
persuaded the Air Forces' smiling commander
to make several secret trips to Capitol Hill to
lobby for continuation of her pets, the WASPS.
Though not generally known, twenty-five
WASPS have already been killed while ferrying
planes in the United States. Further, after
almost two years of training and the expenditure
of millions of dollars, only eleven WASPS are
able to fly twin-engine pursuit planes and only
three are qualified to pilot four-engine bombers.



jobs with the air transport command, but
still Jacky Cochran trains more WASPS. These
flyers point out that the WASPS, like the
WACS, claim they were recruited to release
men for active service. Now they say the
WASPS are "just replacing men, period."
THE FEDERAL Communications Commission is
usually in hot water with the big broadcast-
ers, but the latest sizzler was touched off -by the'
CIO's United Automobile Workers. They want
the FCC to take away the license of Station
WHKC, Columbus, Ohio.
The Commission has never taken away a radio
license in its ten years of existence. Its prede-
cessor, the Federal Radio Commission, took away
only three-and those because the stations were
owned by quacks.
The auto workers,, however, claim that WHKC
has suppressed freedom of speech by censoring
a script by UAW official Richard T. Franken-
steen. As part .of its brief to the FCC, UAW,
enclosed portions of broadcasts by Fulton
Lewis, Jr., and Boake Carter, heard over
WHKC, which dealt with the same subjects
that were cut from Frankensteen's script.
Lewis and Carter took an anti-labor viewpoint
and were not censored.
Labor is also plenty het up over NBC's recent
cancellation of the Labor for Victory program
because the network considers anything CIO
does to be "political" in an election year.
Even more ,disturbing to the networks is the
pressure drive by the National Association of
Manufacturers to force a series of thirteen
quarter-hour transcriptions on the nation's 900
radio stations. The series is called "Business
Men, Look to the Future," and NAM is asking
free time for these programs.
The letter sent to all broadcasters asking
for free time states that "local business men
will,be informed of the degree of cooperation
received from each station.
On the'letterhead, are featured the names
of Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., and James S. Adams.
Sloan is chairman of General Motors, which
bought $835,884 worth of radio time last year;
also a director of E. I. du Pont de Nemours,
which spent $608,400 for radio time. Adams is
president of Standard Brands, Inc., which spent
$2,168,422 for radio time last year. No wonder
the networks are jittery.

"dF LAW," Hooker wrote, "there
can be no less acknowledged
than that her seat is in the bosom of
God, her voice the harmony of the
world." Here is a poetic putting of
the fact of faith as against the will
to legalize values into existence.
There are at least three zones of our
common life where values are needed
but absent, and we seem unable to
do anything about it:
(1) The black-white growing
tenseness; (2) The falling apart
of groups in the political cam-
paign; and (3) The estrangement
between soldier and production
In some states, the legislators have
attempted laws on one or more of
these perplexities. In the black-white
case, Congress in hearings and the
Supreme Court, in reversal of an old
decision, have appealed to specific
action. What Hooker was emphasiz-
ing was that faith must be altered
and values already with us must be
invoked or the surface acts will be
in vain. In fact; the surface acts of
legislation when good in the view of
history may immediately make worse
the very case which such legislations
are designed to correct.
WHAT, THEN, can one do for his
country when such a dangerous
psychological period comes upon us?
Here is where a genuine high religidn
should serve. Religious citizens, fam-
ilies, neighborhoods, groups stretch-
ing across states and regions can be
of rare national assistance. We know
that the Quakers, for example, due
to a peculiar training and a certain
sensitivity, on the one hand will slow
the anger of their communities and
on the other, will awaken the corres-
ponding duty. Those "old-fashioned
aristocrats" whom we designate as
out of the American past will be the
gentleman and lady regardless. Be-
neath the folds of their generous
1 skirts, as it were, the hounded minor-
ity person can be hidden until danger
is past.
The values cultivated in man's
soul long before they can possibly be
framed into law or stated as a move-
ment become, in these groups of in-
dividuals, a social guarantee in ad-
r Vance.
He' who loves his university, in
e common with each who takes de-
light in the pursuit of learning, and
every eager student whose heart
is in his work, wishes he could
find assurance that our alumni
scattered across the nation, and
all our fellows in Ann Arbor might
constitute such a family of sacred
- honor.
* No such assurance can be ours to-
r day. But eventually when the in-
e signia "Bachelor of Arts" really be-
acomes one with this law which
t ooker finds only in God, we shall
- be able to assert that, by the Demo-
g cratic Way, we have actually ma-
t tured.

Congress Counts, Too
AMERICAN voters today are focusing their
attention too much on presidential nominees
at a time when an effort should be made to
evaluate other candidates in the coming elec-
Vitally important to the future of this nation
in the war and postwar world is the Congress
we elect in November. Thus the reorganiza-
tion yesterday of the CIO Political Action Com-
mittee here is an encouraging sign of an at-
tempt to arouse Ann Arbor voters to an aware-
ness of the Importance of the coming election
both for president and for Congress.
Pledged to the support of President Roose-
velt and to the defeat of Earl C. Michener,
the PAC has undertaken a heavy responsi-
bility in a predominantly Republican district.
It is to be hoped that the PAC will take act-
ive steps to bring to the voters of Washtenaw
County both the Democratic and Republican
records. Only thus can the voters evaluate
the candidates and choose the best man for
the job.
F THE PAC can point out to the voters of
this county Dewey's record as governor, of
New York State, how he turned down the
federal soldier vote and refused to support state
bills to stop the sources of race riots in Newy
York State, they will have taken a great step
toward presenting vital facts. If they point
out Michener's opposition to a federal ballot
and his objections to subsidies and higher taxes,

AFTER CONGRESS refused to let the WASPS
into the Army, Arnold and Miss Cochran
adopted back-door strategy. It was arranged
to sign the WASPS up as WACS, then have them
reassigned to the Air Forces, this despite Con-
gress' clear ruling that the WASPS should not
be taken into the regular Army.
When Col. Oveta Culp Hobby, head of the
WACS, got wind of this deal, she sent emissaries
on forced marches to Capitol Hill to have her
rank raised from colonel to brigadier general.
Oveta was afraid that Jacquelin Cochran would
be made a colonel in the WACS and wanted to
outrank her.
All of which has made Air Corps pilots and
transport flyers see red. Hundreds retiring
from active combat are anxious to stay in the
Army as transport ferry pilots. More than a
thousand discharged pilots are unable to get
