"A majority, even if it is only a small one, of
the Americans is essential for the - actually
free-transmittal of the newest American models
as well as for the insight into American produc-
tion and sales methods. Since Americans are
without a doubt particularly progressive in this
field, the maintenance of this connection is in
the German: interest. Through license fees or
contractual stipulations this cannot be accomp-
lished. With the abolition of the American ma-
jority this advantage, as well as the importance
of the company for the obtaining of raw materi-
als and exports would be lost. The plant would
practically only be worth its own machine ca-
NOTE - The Order of the German Eagle,
highest award for foreigners outside the Reich,
was presented to Henry Ford on behalf of
Hitler on July 30, 1938. This was just about
one year before Hitler plunged Europe into
war. Two years later, when France fell, Edsel
Ford agreed with Assistant Secretary of War
Louis Johnson to manufacture airplane motors
for sale to the British, but his father, Henry
Ford, canceled the order from Detroit next

Nations Charter, you know. It isn't so won-
derful to be for it. Even a dog in a laboratory
will learn his way through a maze after enough
trial and error, and it has taken us two world
wars, a million casualties in the second one, so
far, to come around to the opinion that we need
international action for peace. That is not fast
learning. It is slow. We have delayed engaging
in international action for peace until it would
be a scandal to delay any longer, and that is
What I mean is, let's not give any Senator a
reputation for being a statesman on the ground
that he is for the Charter now. .In statesman-
ship time is of the essence; and while it would
have taken genius to be for such a charter in
1912, and sagacity to be for it in 1920, and
courage to be for it in 1935, to be for it in
1915 means merely that one is a man, with
two arms, two legs, etc., and is in no wise a
remarkable fellow.
The point of these remarks is not mere aim-
less carping. .Bretton Woods comes up for
passage in the Senate this week; and a number
of Senators who have established inexpensive
reputations for statesmanship by supporting
the Charter, are planning to vote against Bret-
ton Woods. . Senator Vandenberg is said to be
one of them.
The question is whether any Senator can be
described as a friend of international collabor-
ation if he votes for the Charter, but against
Bretton Woods; and my feeling is the answer
has to be no. For we have reached the stage
where to be against the Charter is merely to be
a peculiar fellow; there is no real debate about
the Charter; the debate is about Bretton Woods.
This, and not the other, is the field in which
statesmanship will show itslelf.
What we have are a lot of people who are
proud of being Galileos in the age of Einstein;
they are busy putting a high polish on yester-
day's wisdom, and trying to answer today's
questions with it. The issue is not whether we
are to have international collaboration; of course
we must have some kind of international collab-
oration; the issue is how much substance we are
willing to put around the bare bones of the idea.
Bretton Woods answers the question, in
part, by setting up a World Bank and a World
Fund, to furnish the nations with credit for
reconstruction, and with short loans to keep
their currencies stable. Bretton Woods gives
to airy nothing a local habitation and a name;
in it, you can see what international collabor-
ation is; it suddenly has body; you can heft it.
Those who vote for international collaboration
and against Bretton Woods have merely learned,
from watching a million agonies, a new and more
modern way of saying no.

For we have to watch out for a new kind
of character who is appearing among us; the
man who is for the United Nations Charter,
but who snarls at the suggestion that we send
food abroad; he is for the United Nations
Charter, but he won't back it with a dollar;
he is for one world and to hell with it. We
cannot be sure, in every case, that he is a real,
a faithful Elk; he may just have joined for the
contacts, and to have someplace to go at night.

At the State-"Experiment Perilous"
r SAY of a film that it is a
Hedy Lamarr vehicle is usually
enough said. In the case of "Ex-
periment Perilous," which is exactly
such a vehicle, a qualifying state-
ment must be attached.
The film, adapted from Margaret
Carpenter's vague psychological
novel of horror in Murray
Hill, manages to take its star's
personality casually enough to
amount to an intelligent, well-
rounded piece of entertainment
that is among the year's better
The story concerns a psychopath
whose unbalanced mind leads him tot
bring about his sister's death, frighten1
his small son with ghost stories andt
attempt to drive his wife insane. AllG
this terror ends in an eminently satis-I
fying and highly photogenic expfo-c
sion and fire.f
When Miss Lamarr is on the
scene, everything is as usual. Ex-
pertly photographed and present-
ed, she is still the ultimate dis-y
tillation of that national phenome-
non, the glamour girl.

rTHEY SAY that the food situation
in Ann Arbor isn't really as bad
as we would have it seem. For al-
though such choice items as steaks
are as hard to find as a last year's
Dewey button, there seems to be
plenty of nothing available if you're
willing to pay the price.
Toward the end of last semester
the outlook was almost critical.
Nobody in town actually starved,
but there was some talk of the
Dutch and Belgians forming an
"Ann Arbor Emergency War Re-
lief Committee." We know of at
least one coed who solved the food
shortage problem by dieting. In
four weeks she was down from 180
pounds to 150,-casket and all.
A favorite delicacy served by the
local inns is the so-called "Western
Sandwich": two slices of bread with
the wide open spaces in between.
The cost of eating out is of ma-
jor concern to a great group of
students, and there are a couple
of places that won't even let you

income falls in the first two brack-

in onions and then gives you the

We heard about one chef who con-
sistently manages to bring out the
flavor in the food he prepares. What
happens to the flavor once it is
brought out remains a mystery to
one and all.
We went out to eat the other night
and ordered eggs. The cook turned'
two over,-one to us and the other
to the museum of ancient history.
