Post-War Education
THE PROBLEM of reconstruction is fast ap-
proaching us. Reconstruction has many as-
pects and should not be limited to the rebuild-
ing of our normal economic structure, but should
include certain necessary changes in our social
Foremost among the problems that merits
consideration is the place of education in the
post war world. Admittedly, education has
made great strides in this century. Teaching
methods have improved and the education
system has been somewhat democratized, in
that more students are getting more educa-
tion than ever before.
However, education is still for the privileged,
especially the college education. Asuming that
our government improves as a greater share
of its population becomes educated, it should
now be the goal of our democracy to further
democratize our educational system.
This calls for greater scholarship allowances
to the deserving and greater state subsidization
programs. There should be no necessary corre-
lation between income and education.
This means that traditional lines of thought
must be adandoned and that college education
must become as accessible to the student as
are the grade schools today. Brilliant youths
thust not be barred from the university because
they cannot pay the tuition, room, or board costs.
The challenge is thrown to us now. .Recon-
struct our schools so that democracy can
strengthen its hold within our borders.

Without a Country
WHAT IS TO BECOME of the 250,000 Polish
troops who have been fighting under the
Exile Government in England? Since Great
Britain and the United States have recognized
the new Provisional Government of National
Unity in Warsaw the regime in England is a
Government without a country. Its forces have
been getting their pay from Britain, but cannot
continue to do so. What will they do?
Some apparently would return to Poland.
But that is not easy. British officials are in-
vestigating a charge that one officer who
showed such intention was arrested for at-
tempting to transfer his allegiance to the new
Government in Warsaw. And General Rud-
nicki, commander of the First Polish Armored
Division, has issued an order of the day to his
troops in which, after declaring his continued
allegiance to the London regime, he said. "We
shall return to Poland-but only with arms in
It appears that among the officers at least
this is the dominant view. Does this mean that
there will be a continuing effort to overthrow
the new regime in Warsaw? At present such a
program would appear to have very little pros-
peet of success in face of a Warsaw Government
supported not only from Moscow but from
Washington and London and Paris.
But the Government in Exile is not giving up.
It was reported a few days ago to have asked

the Vatican for aid in finding a new home in
some country where it would "enjoy official Ro-
man Catholic sympathies"-as in Dublin or Que-
bec. It will not easily replace the very large sums
(estimated at over 300,000,000 pounds since 1939)
supplied by Britain. But it may obtain support

MR. LEO T. CROWLEY is no leftist. But, as
head of the Export-Import Bank, he favors
lending Russia up to a billion dollars in the next
year. It is politically significant that this an-
nouncement comes from a conservative figure in
our government, and is followed by no protest
of any consequence from the conservative oppo-
sition. Even Senator Taft, of Ohio, says that
this loan is not an "improper billion;" and he
adds "I would say that $1,000,000,000 is a fair
amount to be used in the next year to finance
trade with Russia."
The reason for this display of amity is not
far to seek; Russia is one of the few countries
which will buy our heavy machinery, and will
ultimately pay for it, but will not use the pro-
ducts of it to compete with us for the trade of
the world. Russia has little interest in selling
manufactured goods outside her own borders,
and thus, in a cockeyed sort of way, Russia's
communism is an assurance that this is a safe
loan for our competitive capitalism to make.
But what happens to the grim predictions that
the capitalist world and the communist world
are going to face each other in devoted hostility
across a line on the map, through the postwar
years? It is possible that the future may turn
out to be just a trifle different from what some
of the hystericals imagine. The fact that Russia
is communist, and we are not, provides the
ground for a gorgeous ideological dispute, but
in actual field practice, so to speak, that fact
sometimes averts debate.
Russia has been stripping her portion of
Germany clean of machinery, for example;
but we are not scrambling with her, in bitter
rivalry for this equipment. For us to bring
German machinery into America would merely
mean future unemployment at home; we don't
want that stuff. In the same way, the differ-
ence between our systems prevents conten-
tion as to who gets the services of German
labor battalions; we don't want them; while
Russia is an unfillable bag.
sia wil continue over the years, but there will
be no commercial argument to power it. Our
commercial rivalry will be conducted with coun-
tries with which we have no ideological quarrel;
and, indeed, that rivalry has already commenced.
The British press furiously counts the num-
ber of American business men who turn up in

made of the Veterans Organization. Mr.
Jack Weiss suggested we affiliate nationally
with the American Veterans Committee. - We
have no objection to affiliation with any organi-
zation. In fact, we've had many offers for na-
tional college, and national political veteran
The reasons the veterans declined to affil-
iate could be summarized briefly as: 1) insuf-
ficient constitutional limitations or too broad
a conception of its objectives leaving doubt as
to effectiveness, 2) lack of sufficient informa-
tion of the political, social and philosophical
backgrounds of the officers, 3) for politically
minded groups the answer was that national
political organizations should remain out of
campus veteran activities. Many men consid-
er this a personal issue and prefer a political
group of their own choosing, 4) our basic pur-
pose at Michigan is to facilitate the veteran's
readjustment socially a n d intellectually
through mutual help.
We wish to make the veteran feel he is a part
of the University and to prevent unfairness re-
garding his status. We look to the fall term when
Wve expect more disabled men with more difficult

need to feel "wanted."

cent of the men. To have this group politically
active would be an unfair representation of the

and justly so.
We are, and must remain, a democratic

Paris, and hotly recommends that an equal
number of English businessmen, plus one, be
sent at once. Lord Davidson, head of Britain's
Engineering Industries Association, laments
in a speech that Britain is not going after for-
eign markets quickly enough; he thus breaks
open a whole area of rivalry and controversy
toward which Russia maintains an elaborate
and bored indifference. Sir Percy E. Bates,
chairman of the Cunard White Star Line, com-
plains that his ships are being held down by
war-time restrictions, and by the need for
transporting troops, while "an American air
service" is operating "for its own profit."
One wonders whether a proposal to lend a'
billion American dollars to Britain for the pur-
pose of rebuilding her industry would be consid-
ered by Senator Taft to be a proper billion; and
perhaps he would not consider it so; it is a
strange truth that it is easier to lend to the
These jottings arc set down only for the pur-
pose of indicating that the postwar world is
going to be rather more complicated than ap-

terms. The problem of establishing an accord
between the western world and Russia may
turn out to be less difficult than that of work-
ing out a lasting commercial peace between
Britain and America. Russia's unique, sponge-
like capacity for absorbing manufactured
goods without giving offense by selling any

haps even a kind of mediator between the two.

School of Education
"IF SOME PEOPLE did not have neuroses, they
might go insane," Dr. David M. Trout, visiting
professor in the School of Education, said in an
interview yesterday.
"In many instances the person who escapes
into a neurotic state becomes sufficiently ad-
justed so that he does not develop a psycho-
sis, a far more serious type of mental disorder,"
Dr. Trout continued, revealing the combina-
tion of his vocational and avocational inter-
ests in mental hygiene.
"For example, a student once told me that he
was blind. On further inquiry I discovered that
he was 'blind' only when he began to read, that
he had realized his blindness for the first time
when he tried to study for a chemistry examina-
tion," Dr. Trout, who is teaching mental hy-
giene and guidance, said.
"The boy soon learned he could not see to
study for any exam," Dr. Trout continued. "He
was removed from the big city school to which
his father had objected and placed in a smaller
one, where he made a very good record. The boy
had found his escape, and if he had not arrived
at this solution, his fear of exams and his general
insecurity might have developed into a psycho-
Many such men came to Dr. Trout in
his position as Dean of Students at Central
Michigan College in Mt. Pleasant, and he ap-
plies his past experience as professor of psy-
chology at Hillside and Central Michigan Col-
leges to these problems, which are "right down
his alley."
Dr. Trout has been head of the Department of
Psychology and Education at Central Michigan
since 1937. During leaves of absence in 1940 and
1942-43, he has acted as consultant for the Mich-
igan Secondary Curriculum Study and acted as
coordinator of the Michigan Cooperative Teach-
er-Education Study. In the latter capacity, he
edited "The Education of Teachers"
In addition, Dr. Trout frequently contributes
to journals and magazines. His latest article
in the Michigan Education Asociation Journal
is about the Michigan State Curriculum Plan-
ning Commission, of which he is chairman.
Dr. Trout received his bachelor's degree from
William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., his mas-

ter's in 1922 and the PhD degree in 1924 both
from the University of Chicago. He holds an
honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters
from Hillsdale College.
Among organizations of which he is a mem-
ber are the American Association for the Ad-
vancement of Science, the American Associa-
tion of University Professors, and the Michi-
gan Academy of Science.

Arturo de Cordova takes the lead
as the Mayan prince Uz who, be-

with a great deal of feeling.
The story, a tragedy, centers around
a bit of Mayan folklore in which a
beautiful woman, as is so often the
case, casts a curse upon her tribe
through her sin. Lo, portrayed fairly
weakly, is directly responsible for one
man's death and the suffering of her
entire tribe.
The white intruder who has had
an illicit affair with Lo is killed by
