TH CARELESSNESS of Washtenaw County's
board of Supervisors in failing to provide
for the administration of juvenile delinquency
In this area would be funny if it were not so
On three separate occasions in the past two
years, vigorous protests against current meth-
ods of caring for juvenile problems have been
Voiced, once by a state authority, then by a
lo l group of interested citizens, and most
teceoitly by The Michigan Daily and Prof.
vIWel Carr, an expert in such matters..
Yet the Board continues to go blithely along,
intent on matters of factional strife and poli-
tical manipulation while this vital problem gets
no consideration.
Why should the Board of Supervisors be con-
eorned? Because this body holds the ends of
the purse strings In the county, and could, if
alert to a threatening situation, take steps now
to remedy conditions and prepare for future
years when the potential industrial develop-
ment of the areas becomes an accomplished
During the war years, the Probate Court found
that juvenile delinquency in the county spiraled
upward. The reason was the same as that in
every community-fathers at war, mothers in
factories, homes broken. In addition, thousands
of families moved into the area from other sec-
tions of the country to stake claims on factory
payrolls. %
Some of these families have moved on, others
remain. And although fathers have returned
from the wars and mothers are presumably once
more back in the homes, the rate of juvenile re-
ports flooding police and sheriff's offices con-
tinues. The future holds no other promise than
that more will continue. From Willow Village,
Platt subdivision, and the heart of Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti, reports of minor crimes by ju-
veniles are a daily reminder that action must
be taken now. The price must be paid today, or
a much rpore costly toll will be extracted in fu-
ture years.
But what does the Board of Supervisors do?
Nothing. What could this body do? Pledge it-
self to combat this problem, accept the recom-
mendation of experts for immediate action, and
pay the bills now, before the cost is paid with
human lives and human happiness.

HE STORY of British policy toward Spain
would be incomplete if Salazar were left out.
From the beginning the Spanish and Portugese
dictatorships have run a parallel course, ren-
dering each other the most valuable services. The
Badajoz massacre near the start of the Spanish
War, which opened the decade of Franquist ter-
ror, was one of the first fruits of this infamous
collaboration; the Salazar police drove Spanish
Republican fugitives back across the border to be
herded into the Badajoz bullring, where thous-
ands were machine-gunned. Until very recently
the Unitarian Service Committee was still strug-
gling to find haven overseas for Spanish Repub-
licans in Portugal who were in immediate danger
of being arrested and delivered to Franco. The
Spanish dictator would not have felt so sure of
himself these past years had he not been able to

T AM NOT MUCH concerned about the opin-
ion of the three Spanish students who de-
clared themselves in favor of "the great diplo-
mat" Peron, but I cannot accept that head-line
"Latin American Students Uphold Peron Re-
gime" as published on August 1, in The Michi-
gan Daily, because I do not believe that the
opinion of those three students is the general
opinion among Latin American students on
As a matter of fact I believe the general
opinion is very different and this is not hard
to prove.
I did not get that idea concerning the inter-
ference of the United States in the last elections
in Argentina but it seems to me that those three
Spanish students love the people that make
trouble for the U.S.A.
"You can't call them Nazis," protested the
Colombian and Ecuadorian students; I would
like to ask: why not? They are indistinguish-
able! The same goose step, the same uniform,

Library hours ..
To the Editor:
LIBRARIES are right in trying to conserve
their resources for the future, but it seems
to me that the present is important, too. I am
thinking of the restriction of certain art books-
those containing good reproductions of a rea-
sonably large size-to student use in the Gener-
al Library Building. Yet if students are really to
learn to appreciate art, to live intimately with
it, they need to take out art books and pore over
them at leisure in their rooms.
Of course reproductions can never equal the'
original works of art, but fine, large reproduc-
tions-and in the case of colored originals,
good colored reproductions-are the next best
thing. In some cases, too, the most important
biography and critical study of an artist will
be in a book containing the best reproduc-
tions-Goodrich's "Thonas Eakins," for ex-
Don't misunderstand me. I am perfectly will-
ing for libraries to save art books for the future,
because many of these books will be even more
valuable and useful in the future than they are
today. Here is my proposal:
If enough persons feel as I do, they can
start building a collection of these "oversize"
art books which will be accessible to students
on a take-home-for-two-weeks basis. As many
The American: A Middle Western Legend.
A novel by Howard Fast. Duell, Sloan and
Pearce, 1946. $3.00.s
THE STRUGGLE for freedom in America has
been a twisted, tortuous belt, studded with
many outrages. Even in courts of justice the
demands of greed, fear and prejudice have often
broken through to the surface; and innocent
men have been deliberately punished. It was so
in the Debs trial in 1895, the Sacco and Vanzetti
case in the post-war decade, the frame-up of the
Scottsboro boys in the depression era, and the
murder of the Haymarket martyrs in 1887.
John Peter Altgeld in 1890 had been a success-
ful businessman-judge and a rather brilliant
politician; ,but there was in him something of
that uncommon belief in justice and the Jeffer-
sonian tradition. When Altgeld took office as
governor of Illinois in 1893, his investigation of
the Haymarket incident of seven years earlier
convinced him that the accused had been inno-
cent. It seemed to him irrefutable that they had
been convicted, not because they were guilty of
the Haymarket bombing (Only two of the eight
convicted had been at the scene of the crime),
not because they were anarchists, but solely be-
cause they were leaders in the Chicago labor
movement. The trial had been framed, the judge
had been prejudiced, and the men had been con-
victed upon a principle never recognized before

or since in American law. Five of the eight were
dead in 1893, but Altgeld pardoned the remain-
ing three men.
Albert Parsons, one of the anarchists who had
been hanged, becomes the shadow controlling
Altgeld's life and is the real hero of the book. The
book is powerfully and convincingly written in
terms of human reactions to tragedy and guilt,
and Fast has used his historical facts care-
Taken with his earlier works on Tom Paine,
Washington, Haym Solomon, and "Freedom,
Road," this book unquestionably makes Fast
the foremost historical novelist in America.
In choosing as his subject one of the great
trials for American freedom, he has obeyed
the last words of Albert Parsons: "Let the
voice of the people be heard!"

as twenty students, by each contributing five
dollars a year toward this project, could make,
a good start. (The faculty members would not
be concerned, as they already have the right
to check such books out of the library.)
Another thing, I believe that current copies
of as important and interesting a magazine as
"Art News" should be available in the Periodical
Reading Room. Now such copies can be seen only
in Alumni Memorial Hall-a place the average
student is not likely to frequent. Perhaps stu-
dents can raise $5.50 to provide another yearly
Members of the A.V.C. may like to include
some of these ideas in their plans for a fuller
life and a better university; surely others will
be interested. How about it?

Dominic Says
IS MANKIND on the verge of a fresh emphasis
upon religion and the meaning of life? There
are signs to that effect. The Hindu philosophers
either mobilizing half fed millions or gathering
their wandering seminars as Tagore and Gandhi
have done so effectively, are making progress.
While seemingly involved in the unessentials,
these Hindu leaders show character. They cling
tenaciously to values basic in all great religions
and perhaps have matched the homeless Jew
in teaching mankind that "Thou Shalt Not Kill."
If this new effort at dominion status in India
carries, the religious message of Hinduism will
definitely reinforce sister religions around the
world and aid in bringing human values, social
sensitivity, and peace to the western as well as
eastern peoples.
Buddhism, always philosophically a rival to
Christianity, though seriously crippled in Japan
by the militarists, has withdrawn but has not
been defeated. When the religious mnap of the
Far East is imposed on the political map, and
the gentle virtues which reach every culture by
way of women and children and get expounded
by philosophers, mystics and artists, are set forth
in numbers of families, trends of population
and tenacity of group life, we can see that al-
tars are always a threat to thrones.
Confucianists of China are questioned anew
by the social reforms of a certain seventy million
Agrarians who believe themselves to be the direct
social and spiritual descendants of China's re-
deemer, Sun Yat Sen, Dr. Luu's widow, a sister
of Madam Chiang Kai Shek has recently warned
Chiang against aggression. The Far East now
must turn a critical mind upon the current
corruptions of Confucian ethics. This means
that the entire 400,000,000 of vast China are
being immersed in a religious experience as
well as engaged in a social war with world poli-
tics involved.
Judaism, the parent Religion of the one God,
now ready to trade the international ideal for a
homeland, however limited, has come through
the terrible suffering, death and shame which
was visited on its adherents with a fighting
spirit. Millions who previously had deserted or
been reared without the Synagogues in various
countries, in loyalty and contrition, have taken
up the Law anew since the war and have brought
to Judaism a determined contemporary schedule
of common duties.
What of Christianity? The Catholic Christians,
as a Central Party in Germany include hundreds
of priests imprisoned by the Gestapo, and
through a determined movement of Catholic
leaders within the Unions in the United States
as well as by a conscious development of new
educational institutions in American cities give
evidence that Rome is alert as never since the
eleventh century. Orthodox Christianity having
earned a new freedom in Soviet Russia by her
ministry to the armed forces, has taken on new
life. As many as fifty new congregations have
developed in Moscow alone since the relaxation
acts of 1944. Protestants have launched into a

World Council of Churches, lifted their aims to
community revision and are calling powerful
youth to the Christian ministry.
Religion is on the march. Its proponents, as
yet unable to determine step by step the des-
tination, are agreed on the values at stake.
Those stakes are similar to if not identical
with the democracy of America. In the words
of Carl Hermann Voss (July 22 issue of Chris-
tianity and Crisis): "To help America come of
age we must scrutinize without mercy our
pretensions. We obey the imperativo of the
Kingdom of God and we follow after the
American Dream when we insist that morals
should have primacy over economics, that in-
justice be steadfastly resisted, that no toler-
ance be granted the paradox of moral man in
an immoral system, or of poverty in the midst
of wealth. These objectives are indispensable
to a healthy, sound civilization. We in Ameri-
ca can never fulfill our destiny until we are
plunged by events into utter despair and from.
that despair receive the impetus to redeem our-
selves in the eyes of God and man."

OVERNOR ELLIS Arnall of Geor-
gia is not one of those narrow de-
fenders of State's rights who main-
tain that no "outsider" has any busi-
ness to intervene when terror and
violence sweep their communities.
Governor Arnall has telegraphed
President Truman his warm appre-
ciation of "the full cooperation of
the Federal government, the Depart-
ment of Justice and the Federal Bur-
eau of Investigation in assisting State
and local authorities to apprehend
the desperadoes who lynched four
Negroes in Walton County, Ga., on
July 25." We believe he and other
Governors, North and South, should
also welcomhe the action of the Civil
Rights Division of the Department of
Justice in investigating the activities
of the Ku Klux Klan.
It is not easy to draw the line be-
tween State and Federal authority.
A murder not involving the crossing
of a State line is not often a case for
Federal action. But a lynching is not
merely a murder. It may mean the
breakdown of orderly processes of law
in a community. In Walton County it
has obviously meant the terrorization
of innocent persons, both Negro and
