Steel to Spain
CIO HEAD Philip Murray has charged that
plans are being made to ship 200,000 tons
of steel to General Franco of Spain. Murray
asserts that producers of steel are anxious to
ship it abroad because that way the price
would be uncontrolled, whereas in the United
States market prices are managed and, conse-
quently, profits are limited.
The Foreign Economics Administration has
denied Mr. Murray's charge, but often what
one bureau denies is being done, another
breau is busy doing.
It is to be hoped that Mr. Murray is wrong
in his charge. Unfortunately, our relations
with Spain have been none too healthy, and one
is prone to believe accusations such as this cur-
rent one.
Aside from the fact that steel is vital here,
and is none too plentiful, the moral issue of
sending anything to Franco immediately en-
ters the picture. Franco has been our enemy
all along. He and his government are rep-
resentative of what we are supposed to be
fighting, namely fascism. If Mr. Murray is
right, something is not only rotten in Den-
mark; it's rotten in America.

Armed Camps
AN INDUSTRIAL EXPLOSION, involving labor
and management in the city of Detroit is
predicted by Earl Brown, author of "Detroit's
Armed Camp" in this month's edition of Harp-
er's Magazine. Hitting at sore spots on both
sides of the fence, Mr. Brown cites facts in his
article which indict both the unions and the
employers in the Detroit area.
Brown states, in his expose, that the irre-
sponsible behavior of workers in Detroit is'
exemplified in wildcat strikes, slowdowns and
all types of behavior leading to industrial
anarchy. This anarchy, he explains, was
caused by the government's demand for step-
ped-up production.
Industries hired men at exhorbitant wages to
do nothing in order to have them on hand
when materiels came in. .Labor unions, relieved
of their obligations to fight for higher wages,
began to accuse manufacturers of being anti-
union. When plants began to fall behind in
their production schedules, the workers balk-
ed because they feared that they would work
themselves out of their jobs.
The mushroom growth of Detroits industries
has resulted, according to Brown, in the in-
flux of thousands of untrained, undisciplined
workers, he points out, and discord in union
organization between numerous factional groups
has made it impossible to instill in the workers
a sense of responsibility in their jobs.
Brown also scores industrialists for "imma-
ture and bigoted policies." He contends that
management is taking advantage of labor's no-
strike pledge by refusing to settle grievances
expeditiously, and asserts that employers are
attempting to discipline workers and, at the
same time, making it difficult for them to bar-

gain collectively.
Other causes, for the industrial strife, Brown
declares, are the laxity of government agencies
in handling disputes and the lack of construct-
ive official leadership in Detroit.
Writing as a disinterested observer, Brown
has given some clues to the two-sided struggle

Urges Adoption of Kiev
To the Editor:
IN THE COMING ELECTIONS by the Student
Organization for International Cooperation
for the adoption of a foreign University, it is im-
perative that the student body select that Uni-
versity whose adoption will to the greatest ex-
tent contribute to international cooperation and
good will. Many Universities in different coun-
tries have been destroyed-for this reason de-
struction should not be our only criterion for
adoption. Our criterion should be-where is the
promotion of good will and friendship most
needed?
The answer to this question is obviously that
we need to work most strongly for bonds of
friendship between Russia and the United
States. It has repeatedly been pointed out that
for a peaceful post-war world, friendship and
understanding between the United States and
Russia is essential.
The University of Michigan student body can
materially assist in cementing the bond of
friendship between Russia and the United
States, and thus further a peaceful post-war
world, by adopting the University of Kiev, Rus-
sia.
A vote for Kiev is a step toward world peace.
Hubert R. Hunt.
In Re-VO -and AUC
To the Editor:
FOUND MR. WELSH'S ANSWER to my let-
ter of the 12th interesting but infinitely incon-
clusive. However, before I commence to refute
his arguments, I might remind him and anyone
else interested, that neither he }nor I can settle
this controversy and that we merely represent
differing sets of viewpoints. Only the united and
majority action of all vets on campus can decide
the outcome of this debate.
Mr. Welsh makes a double-barreled assump-
tion, that I am out to pan 1) the Legion, and
2) the Veterans Organization. On the first
count he is right. I am out to pan the Legion.
But it would indeed be folly if I were to be-
lieve that my piddling voice could wipe the
Legion off the American scene. The Legion's
own record is its most potent condemnation.
Therefore, as a member of the AC, I attack
the Legion, but recognize that these attacks
are mere spitballs against a battleship of vet-
eranism.
On his second assumption, Mr. Welsh is dead
wrong. If he had read my article carefully, he
would have noted that it is not my intent to dis-
establish VO. I merely propose that we supple-
ment the social activities of VO with more ser-
ious and significant activities. This can be ac-
complished through an AVC chapter on campus.
I might add in passing, that at the last VO meet-
ing when I introduced AVC, I pointed out that
it might very well be that due to a lack of scope
VO was suffering the pains of mitigated interest.
Why, Mr.Welsh, did you not speak up then?
Was it because the mapority of men in attend-
ance agreed with' me at the time? Were you
afraid of possible VO censure that any spirited
opposition might have brought?
There are two more points which you made,
Mr. Welsh, with which I take issue and which I
feel a great number of veterans would oppose.
You admit that VO is not a fighting organiza-
tion, but as if this admision were not enough,
you go on to imply that you are proud of this
impotency. I agree with you that the university
is doing everything it possibly can for us. But
I strongly doubt that the administration wants'
us to sit back and parasitically feed on its
strength. I strongly believe that the administra-
tion wants us to become campus leaders, wants
us to take up the challenge of civilian life and
needs. And I am equally firm in the belief that
most vets want our strength to derive from
ourselves.
Your second point was even more disheart-
ening. You say you are finished with these so-
called injections of enthusiasm. If only you

could see the illogicality of this statement. The
mere fact that VO's membership is not what
it should be shows that something is lacking.
What is it, Mr. Welsh, if not enthusiasm?
Surely your membership did not fall off be-
cause you were actively engaged in the good
fight for freedom, security and peace.
Then what does this all add up to? What does
it mean? It means that we have reached a

crossroads. Two paths confront us. The one we
1 take is the one that might be instrumental in
making this a better world in which to live. I
for one do not adhere to the narrow contention
that the vets on this campus have no other in-
terest than in helping their buddies here and
only here. We have learned in this world that
what benefits a person in Chunking or Belgrade,
benefits a person here on this campus. By the
same token, what benefits a veteran in Oshkosh,
aids a veteran here in Ann Arbor. Like peace,
Mr. Welsh, human betterment and welfare is in-
divisible.
In closing, might I add, that regardless of
which path VO decides to take, I'm coming
along as a member. And so long as I am a
member of VO, I shall continue to plug for an
AVC chapter. We cannot escape our obliga-
tions by seeking refuge in a "let-George-do-it"
attitude. Again, I put the question to the vet-
eran on campus: do we continue as a social
group and only a social group, or shall we sup-
plement VO with an AVC chapter?
It is not for me or Mr. Welsh to decide.
Therefore, it is of capital importance that
every veteran at Michigan appear at the next
VO meeting. I shall expect Mr. Welsh to be
prepared for a full-dress debate. At any rate,
if he is not, I shall be.

ON SECOND
By Ray Dixon
BAND'S AWAY
CHECKED UP ON THE PROGRESS of Bill
Layton's band the other day and found that
most of the progress is all potential.
We had thought all along that Layton's lad-
dies were blowing out their hearts in parts
south. But the band ran into booking trouble
and we were able to run into Layton on cam-
pus. He explained that things are straightened
out now and that everything looks cozy for
the rest of the summer.
The band opens in Youngstown, O. next week
and then proceeds to Norfolk, Va., Louisville,
and Kansas City. By the time they finish the
tour fall term wil commence and they expect to
be back on campus.
What really prompted this piece was a letter
from trumpet man Roger Jacobi:
It seems that the band was scheduled to play
in Toledo the first weekend after the close of the
spring semester. It turned out to be quite a
weekend.
"Saturday night we played in Toledo fo five-
and-a-half hours and that's work. We came
back to Ann Arbor and crawled in bed around
4 a. mn. Sunday we played in Toledo again.
After the job ve proceeded merrily on our way
in the band's truck until, all of a sudden, the
motor gave out.
"We rushed it to Silvania, O. and tried to fix
it. Al Pike (the band's bass man) had the mo-
tor half torn apart when we found that the
gas gauge was off and the truck was simply
out of gas. Then the town cop came along
and threatened to throw us all in jail. After
talking him out of it (and it wasn't easy) we
arrived in Ann Arbor about G:30 a. m., had
breakfast and went home."
Maybe playing in a band isn't all glory and
union wages after all.
* *
A MEMBER OF THE DAILY tryout staff was
looking over the story about how the Uni-
versity was planning to build three new dormi-
tories; one for maried couples behind the Public
Health Building, one for girls next to Mosher-
Jordan and one for fellahs next to the East
Quad.
The University might be interested, if not im-
pressed, by the tryout's reaction:
"Heck," he said, "I'd be a lot more interest-
ed if they planned to put the boy's dorm next
to Mosher."
Good Idea
SANDWICHED between two American League
night game baseball scores, we ran across an
item of almost universal interest that probably

did not make more than a few newspapers in
the country.
The Army newspaper, Stars and Stripes, said
that Gen. Omar N. Bradley had directed Army
officers to cease monopolizing the time, of USO
performers and permit them to entertain "the
GI's as they are supposed to do."
Good idea.

THE RANGEFINDER:
World Youth
By JOhN A. MEREWETHER
THREE CHEERS for the Student
Organization for International
Cooperation which last Thursday
brought some one hundred and fifty
people together to discuss the Wash-
ington Youth Conference and con-
sider support by the students on this
campus of some foreign university.
Such a campus organization is
an excellent thing. In the words of
Dean Alice Lloyd, it is a "project
which will enlarge our vision and
help students of other lands." Per-
haps if the youth of the world had
known each other better after the
last war there would have been no
Versailles Treaty. Perhaps Amer-
ican youth would have made the
Henry Cabot Lodges pass the bill
to make the United States a mem-
ber of the League of Nations.
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps. Such
idle wishing is of little value today,
unless we have learned lessons from
the mistakes of the past. It is to
be hoped that organizations like the
SOIC will increase our knowledge of
the problems and achievements of
the youth of other lands in their fight
for freedom.
In other areas of the world today
knowledge and fraternal feeling be-
tween the youth of the world would
aid world progress. The students
and youth of India want help from
democratic youth throughout the
world to gain freedom and indepen-
dence from British imperial rule.
Greek students need assistance in
changing their pro-fascist govern-
ment now supported by British bay-
onets. Students of the different na-
tionalities of the Soviet Union need
aid in rebuilding their schools. Chi-
nese students ask our help in set-
ting up a democratic government to
replace the Kuomintang feudal dic-
tatorship. Spanish anti-Franco stu-
dents in. France and Mexico plead
with American students for food and
aid in destroying Franco and his fas-
cist government.
The SOIC should help American
youth, should help students here to
know the problems of students in
other lands. From knowledge comes
power for us if we act, and that
power must be for a newer, bet-
ter, more dempcratic world than
the world's youth has yet known.
L'DAMA
THE MALE ANIMAL by James
Thurber and Elliott Nugent
IN CHOOSING "The Male Animal.
which had been made into a mov-
ie, for their second production, the
Michigan Repertory Players set for
themselves a difficult job. While it
might not be completely fair to say
that they failed, it must be admit-
ted that they botched it here and
there.
Dan W. Mullin, in the male lead,
spoke his lines with funereal ca-
dence, transforming Tommy Turn-
er from a gentle creature beset by
blockheads into a misanthropic,
disagreeable killjoy. In the drunk
scene he was at his best, but was
forced to occupy the stage with
Louis Calfin, who didn't do very
well, I'm afraid.
The best actor of the bunch was
Robert Webber, who brought out, to
just the correct degree of realism,
the various repulsive mannerisms of
Ed Keller; he made you want to toss
him a cobra. In a very similar part,
Arthur Markey just stood with his
legs far apart, shouted, wobbled his
head and sometimes scratched it.

Miss Mary Jordan was moderately
unccnvincing, but not quite as much
so at the rest of the cast; and Miss
Naomi Vincent is certainly to be
commended for her restraint in play-
ing the weak slapstick written for
another comic maid,
"The Male Animal" is full of
pretty good gags, points out that
some people have ideals and some
don't and is larded through with
an obscure sort of emotional crisis
which involves suitcases being
packed, and which, presumably, is
brought under control in time for
the third act curtain.
