Community Loss
A BRILLIANT SURGEON and hospital admini-
strator, onetime dean of the University Med-
ical School, Dr. Hugh S. Cabot, died last week
while sailing in Frenchman's Bay, Maine.
Dr. Cabot, who was graduated from Harvard,
came to Michigan in 1919 as Professor of Sur-
gery in the Medical School, and from 1921 to
1930 he was Professor of Surgery and Dean of
the Medical School. Specializing in the field of
urology, he was noted as a surgeon and author.
He approved of group practice by physicians as
the "only method by which modern medicine
can be effectively distributed."
This great loss to the medical profession is a
loss to the community as well. Let Michigan
remember Dr. Cabot, both as dean of its Med-
ical School and as benefactor of the coimiun-
-Elinor Moxness
IT IS A HOPEFUL sign that the United States
and Britain have opened discussions on the
establishment of a Jewish national home ln
Great Britain has for too long held back on
her promise under the Balfour Declaration,
which says, "His Majesty's Government views
with favor the establishment in Palestine of
a National Home for the Jewish People and will
use their best endeavors to facilitate the achieve-
ment of this object, it being clearly understood
that nothing shall be done which may prejudice*
the civil and religious rights rights of existing
non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the
rights and -political status enjoyed by the Jews
in any other country."
The arguments for the establishment of a
Jewish national home in Palestine are famil-
iar. But, equally familiar are the arguments
given against such a project. These latter ar-
guments can be easily disposed of.
One such argument is that the Jews have no
right to the land they are cultivating in Pales-
tine. From some of the stories one hears, one
would think that the Jews have taken the land
they have in Palestine by force. On the con-1
trary, Jewish organizations and individuals have
bought every bit of land they have in Palestine.
Another cry has been raised that the Jews are
driving the Arabs from Palestine. Those who
are yelling the loudest on this score are a group
of extremely wealthy Pan-Islamic Arabsgwho
seek to continue their power over the masses
and are afraid of Jewish ideas of social equality.
Proof against the argument that the Jews are
driving the Arabs from Palestine is the fact that
the Arab population there has increased fifty
per cent since large Jewish immigration to Pal-
estine began twenty-five years ago.
One of the most striking arguments heard
against the establishment of a Jewish homeland
in Palestine is that such an undertaking is an
encouragement of nationalism. Although this

on the surface may seem to be the case, the es-
tablishment of a Jewish home steeped in Hebrew
culture and concepts is not nationalism of the
dangerous type. It is political nationalism that
is dangerous, not cultural nationalism - espe-
cially if that culture is one of social equality and
brotherhood. It is true that a political national
state will be necessary, for the present at least,
to the establishment of Hebrew culture in Pales-
tine. We hope that this is merely a transitional
stage through which all nations are passing, but
it is a necessary stage.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: In Drew Pearson's absence, Her-
bert Brownell, Jr., Chairman of the Republican Na-
tional Committee, writes a guest column on GOP
plans for 1946.)
Chairman, Republican National Committee
WASHINGTON - The inside story from Re-
publican leaders is that the Republican Par-
ty will win control of Congress in 1946. Put that
down as one of this column's "predictions of
things to come." Let's have a quick look at the
national political scene as America gdes forward
to win the peace; and see why this prediction
makes sense.
Republican governors now direct the govern-
ment of 23 states, containing 56 per cent of the
total population of the United States. These
same states contribute 67 per cent of the in-
ternal revenue to support the Federal givern-
ment. In other words, those 23 states, where
Republican government encourages the oper-
ation of the American system based upon in-
dividual opportunity, provide more than two-
thirds of the money necessary to keep the na-
tion's government operating.
After the 1936 election, there were 16 Repub-
lican U. S. Senators; after 1940, there were 28.
Now there are 40 and when baseball czar "Hap-
py" Chandler resigns - as he should - there
will be 41. That's only 8 short of a majority.
In the House, Republicans had 89 Congressmen
after the '36 election. These increased to 162
after the '40 election. After the '44 election, Re-
publicans had 190 seats - only 28 short of a
majority. In the Montana special election in
June -- the first test of a public opinion at the
polls on national issues since the advent of the
Truman administration - the Republicans won
another seat in a district that had been New
Deal for 14 years. Right now, the New Deal
Governor of New Mexico refuses to call a spe-
cial election to fill a congressional vacancy
caused by cabinet member Clinton Anderson's'
resignation from Congress. Does he fear the
Why this steady increase in Republican
GOP Takes Initiative...
DURING THE WAR Republicans have demon-
strated an ability for constructive leadership
in the field of international affairs by taking the
initiation in steps leading to the formation of
the United Nations organization, and otherwise
by doing everything within the power of a min-
ority party to make sure that this time we shall
win the peace as well as the war. As far back as
July, 1943, "The Republican Post-War Policy As-
sociation" drew up a declaration favoring the
establishment of a post-war security organization
to insure the maintenance of peace.
About two months later-in September, 1943
-an official Republican meeting at Mackinac
drew up a statement of party policy favoring
"responsible participation by the United States
in post-war cooperative organization among
sovereign nations to prevent military aggres-
sion and attain permanent peace with organ-
ized justice in a free world." Subsequently that
declaration of Mackinac was embodied in the
Republican platform adopted by the national
convention in Chicago in June, 1944, and by
the Republican standard bearers in '44.
The final development was the drafting-with
able leadership from prominent Republican lead-
ers - of a United Nations Charter at San Fran-
cisco, and the ratification of that charter-again
with Republican cooperation - by the United
States Senate.
Aid for Veterans .. .
ON THE DOMESTIC front, the Republicans
are also demonstrating affirmative leader-
For returning veterans, a survey at the clbse
of the 1945 legislative sessions showed the Re-
publican-controlled states are far in the lead
in providing jobs and deserved benefits for veter-
ans. Our people don't like to play partisan poli-
tics with the rights of returning veterans. Hence
a kickback when Edwin McKim, the chief ad-
ministrative assistant to President Truman,
sought to use the promise of funds appropriated

for wounded veterans to influence the special
Congressional election in Montana.
Also the kickback when Governor (and Tru-
man confidante) Wallgren of Washington said
in approval of the action of his State Highway
Department in turning down a veteran of three
years service because he was a Republican-
that veterans who have actively identified
themselves with the Republican party would I
not be hired by his State government.
On the labor front. Republican leadership

has offered a plan for a nation-wide labor con-
ference of management, labor and government
to bring about a charter for industrial peace
at home - just as the San Francisco Charter
seeks to bring international peace.
On the food front, a Republican program to
replace the present OPA set-up was rejected by
the administration but the "planned" food short-
ages will still be remembered in '46.
Ihntocra ic Spendin g...
REPUBLICANS favor an end to extravagant
deficit financing. About the first promise
made by President Truman - after his declara-
tion that he would follow out the Roosevelt New
Deal policies -- was that there would be economy
in government. That was in mid-April. On July
26, Senator Harry F. Byrd, Democrat of Virginia,
chairman of the joint committee on reduction
of nonessential federal expenditures, reported
that there had been a 16,000 net increase in the
number of civilian federal employes in the United
States in June as compared with May. So, it
appears, New Deal "economies" haven't changed.
A moment's consideration of the composition
of the New Deal gives the answer why they
can't change:
There are three essential elements in the
New Deal:
1. The solid South, where political control is
based on racial discrimination and intolerance,
and what the late President F. D. Roosevelt
used to call "economic bourbonism;"
2. The big city machines, controlled by such
eminent exemplifiers of liberalism as Mayor
Kelly of Chicago, Mayor Hague of Jersey City
and Tammany of New York;
3. The radical fringe, composed of groups
led by ex-convict Earl Browder and William Z.
Foster, (who has now deposed Mr. Browder
and endorsed Mr. Truman on probation) to-
gether with their fellow travelers in such
groups as the American Labor Party of New
York and the Wallgren administration in the
state of Washington.
Obviously, these three discordant elements
have no basic interests in common except the de-
sire for political power. Once the cohesive power
of federal funds, spent for political purposes, is
removed, this unholy alliance will fall apart over-
night. Removal of this cohesive power will take
place as soon as the Republicans win control
of Congress next year.
With Republicans in control of the nation's
purse strings, the Federal payroll will cease to
be the happy hunting ground of bureaucratic
theorists bent upon using the American people
as a vast collection of guinea pigs, and upon
perverting the processes of government for po-
litical ends.

OST HARRIED WOMAN on campus this
summer is Florence Kingsbury, editor of the
It seems that almost everyone has the big
urge to see their phizz in print and they "want
their 'Ensian." Miss Kingsbury is very sympa-
thetic. She wants hers, too. But, alas and
alackofensian, the yearbook is in the lap of
the printers and the printers are standing up.
The 'Ensian was completed almost on schedule
last April. It was thought that the book would
be completed and in the hands of subscribers
before the end of the spring term (1945). But
the people who put out the 'Ensian (and they
are very nice people who have no ulterior de-
signs) went a little over the deadline on some
pictures. At about the same time, the printers
wereshit by a big labor shortage that has lasted
up until this date and the iron-bound contract
became quite rusted. Result: no 'Ensian - yet.
It ,is thought and hoped that the book will
definitely be ready for distribution by the open-
ing of the fall term in November. Then, as al-
ways, campus swains. will be able to use it as
their favorite reference book to see what their
blind date looks like before it's too late.

In the meanwhile, the 'Ensian is asking all
subscribers who are leaving town after the
eight-week session and who will not be back in
the fall to leave their mailing addresses at the
Student Publications Building on Maynard St.
before 5 p. m. EWT tomorrow.
When the book finally does show up, the
entire 'Ensian staff is going out and have their
own private V-E (Victory over 'Ensian print-
ers) celebration.
