Political Football'
THE WORLD EXECUTIVE of the Jewish Agen-
cy for Palestine has flatly rejected the British
proposal for a federated Palestine. Since the
Arabs have already rejected the plan, the whole
problem is exactly'where it was before.
Meanwhile, terrorist raids continue, the British
tighten their military control, and tension mounts
daily.
So far, all commission reportssand committee
proposals have failed. They have failed because
both' the Jews and Arabs want full powers in
Palestine and because neither is willing to let
the other have the upper hand.
Two paths of action are open. We can
either let the Jews and Arabs fight it out
among themselves or we can enforce a settle-
ment from above. Since the former would in-
volve much unnecessary bloodshed and would
perpetuate- the hostility between the two
groups, we are left with the latter-enforced
settlement.
Who, then, should enforce the settlement, and
who should decide what the settlement is to be?
Assuming that we want this settlement to be
as just and fair as possible to both parties, who
Is best fitted for this unpleasant task of arbi-
tration?
One thing is sure. It is not the British.
Both the Jews and the Arabs are tired of
British promises, and it is fairly evident that
the extreme elements at least are going to re-
sist strongly any compromise scheme the Brit-
ish might offer. Furthermore, British pro-
posals are unavoidably influenced by their mili-
tary and economic interests in the Mediter-
ranean and Middle East.
Because the Palestine solution will affect hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews in Europe and per-
haps in the whole world, the Palestine problem is
no longer a British problem, but a world problem.
As such, it must be handled by some world
agency.
Handing the problem to the United Nations
Security Council or General Assembly has been
suggested, but if this were done, the whole
question would become another political foot-
ball for the big powers to kick around in their
endless game of power politics. The issue would
be decided not by which side is right but by
which side could muster the most votes. It
would be just something else the Russian and
Anglo-American factions could fight over.
In the framework of the United Nations,
though, we have the International Court of
Justice, that was set up specifically to handle
such disputes. Being a continuation of the old
World Court, it is both experienced and impar-
tial. We can be sure that this court would weigh

carefully the arguments on both sides and would
bring forth as just a solution as could possibly
be obtained. It would then be up to the Security
Council to carry out the court's decision, using
force if necessary.
The Palestine dispute should be referred to
the International Court of Justice for arbi-
tration. According to the San Francisco char-
ter, this is the wiay world disputes are supposed
to be handled. Why isn't this being done?

UN -Here To Stay
The United Nations has eight applications for
membership. This rush to get in is at once a
measure of the necessity of the new internation-
al body and a sign that in the eyes of the out-
siders it is here to stay. Despite the fumblings,
dissensions and uncertainities that trouble the

OUR LECTURES on The Social Implications
of Modern Science are 1evolving about the
discernment of values and an appreciation of
the enduring good. By values we mean not some
commodity but the very reverse, an essence
functioning at the level of personal practice in
the stream of life. Values are not possessed so
much as able to posses us. "You cannot be a
whole unless you join a whole," says Basanquet
in "What Religion Is." "This sense of not being
our own, of belonging to the etrenal supreme
good which is the whole, is freedom and power."
He also holds that "religion is the recognizing of
one's membership in the universe." That, too,
is what we mean by values. They are the powers,
not our own, which within and without, when
accepted seriously make for righteousness.
Values are for everyone, but the literatures
and philosophies about them travel at two
elevations. At the lower level, the Epmethian
or common man, will use the word "standard."
That notion is so flat and so completely some-
thing imposed by groups that it has no lift to
the soul and little challenge to the mind and
heart. Yet every human being has his values,
LABOR NEWS:
Sailors' Leader
By VICTOR RIESEL
EVERYBODY KNOWS that sailors are tough
-but few know why. Maybe the answer is
in the words of a gaunt Norwegian-born sailor,
Andrew Furuseth, the "Lincoln of the sea,"
whose ashes were thrown into the wind above
the mid-Atlantic. "You can put me in jail,"
Furuseth once said. "But you cannot give me
narrower quarters than as a seaman I have
always had. You cannot give me coarser food
than I have always eaten. You cannot make me
lonelier than I have always been."
What makes a sailor tough? Not having an
address when he "hits the beach." Living out
of a mail box and a duffel bag, which the
union checks while he's ashore. What makes
a sailor tough? Climbing into dark holes deep
in theafter part of a ship to sleep off fatigue
in a tight little bunk over the screw where
strange odors and familiar bugs mingle in 'the
tepid air.
What, then, takes a man to sea? The depres-,
sion. An itch to keep moving. A job with three
meals. A yearning for story book adventure. This
yen for seafaring romance in 1922 took an or-
phaned 15-year-old kid from the foster home,
where the State of Massachusetts was raising
him-took him aboard the SS Robert S. Hop-
kins one day as mess boy. He learned about
righteous salors' "beefs" (complaints) first hand.
As mess boy, he was ordered by the Captain
to serve every quart of milk diluted with seven
quarts of water. The new mess boy, unaware that
precious water was kept in special compart-
ments, simply opened a spigot and mixed the
milk. He poured it over the mush and began
serving. After the sailors threw him out of the
mess hall he realized the spigot was a salt water
tap.
That mess boy was Johnny Hawk, virtually
unknown six-foot leader of the unpublicized
anti-Communist AFL Seafarers' International
Union-an organization so powerful it could
strangle the nation's business by halting all
Pacific shipping and a large part of the Atlantic
and Gulf Coasts. After the mess boy stint Hawk
shipped on everything from the SS Leviathan to
steam schooners.
Everywhere he spoke up for his fellow-
sailors. Finally they came to him in 1935 and
asked him to be their union officer. When
'the SIU was organized in 1940 to fight Com-
munist infiltration on the watefront he be-
came the union's Atlantic and Gulf Coast lead-
er, with 35,000 men under him.
When you talk to Johnny Hawk, as I did today,
after he gave 11 large shipping lines a 30-day
strike reprieve, you think he's kidding you. He
talks only of what's good for his followers and
"hanging the pin" (pulling a strike) to help his
"rank-and-file." But as you listen, you know
this is no two-faced lamenting about "the work-
ers." Agree with him, as I do, or not, here is one
powerful union chief who doesn't live in a pent-
house or draw $1,000-a-week.
Walk with him through the jammed, six-story

SIU headquarters here and you see that men
not only respect him-they like him. You notice
a "beef box" with a sign reading: "Have you got
a beef about: (1) how the union is run. (2) How
your ship's beef was handled. (3) Any damn
thing. (4) Then write a letter, sign your name,
drop it in and get action." Ask this crusading,
polo-shirted union leader whom the labor barons
must copy if they would eventually avoid revolt
in their ranks, to see his books-and out they
come. How much do you earn, Hawk? Ninety
dollars a week. Dues? Two dollars a month.
Initiation fees? Twenty-five dollars. Financial
statements? Issued every week. How long in
office? One year.
Watch the SIU. It's breaking into the news
by capturing control-in a collective bar-
gaining election-of seamen on the Isthmian
Line, one of the world's greatest fleets. Then
the SIU will have the balance of power in
America's ports. And that orphaned kid will
be vital to the nation's business.
(Copyright, 1946, N.Y. Post Syndicate)

his touchstone of thought, feeling and action.
Those values determine his bent, direction or
quality for at any given moment they tran-
scend the standards out of which they have
emerged. Values can quicken the soul, even
in its defeat, to personal pride and security.
Here is food for the world's hunger. H. F. Rall
in "Christianity" says of values, "These are
not ideas externally communicated or labori-
ously deduced; they are direct, as illuminating
insights and none the less so because they are
viewed as a gift of God." Standards may be
called values when they become that for which
one will suffer loss, willingly lose face or dare
-to die.
Albert Einstein has offered the following: "To
know that what is impenetrable to us really
exists, manifests itself as the highest wisdom
and the most radiant beauty which our dull fac-
ulties can comprehend only in their most primi-
tive form-this knowledge, this feeling is the
center of true religiousness." In the realm of
values, knowledge comes from insight as a man
looks at the whole. No analysis will yield the
beauty of a landscape, no deduction or demon-
stration can give it to another; it is seen directly
or it is not gained at all. Can justice be present-
ed by argument or is it only an insight? Love
seems never to be evolved by logic nor talked
into existence but can be grasped. through in-
sight, awakened by benevolence or imparted in
social prayer (worship).
The other level is that open only to great
souls whom we refer to as Promethean, the
inspired ones. Even J. R. Lauba, always a
critic of orthodoxy, believes in value at this
upper level. In May, 1928 in Forum he wrote,
"Insight is not a substitute for careful ob-
servation, reflection, criticism and experimen-
tation, but it does have a place. When all else
is done, the whole man with every resource of
mind and imagination sees the whole and per-
ceives meanings and relations which no study
of parts and no summation of discrete facts
can yield." Lowell in his "Columbus" viewed
values in this fashion when he declared:
"It is they,
Who utter wisdom from the central deep
And listening to the inner flow of things
Speak to the age."
Now if according to the religious man gen-
erally, whole hearted devotion to a cause in-
finitely beyond and above oneself or belief in
the mystical membership in an eternal whole is
the adequate status for the good life and also for
human progress, then an affectionate relation
between human and divine personality is the
contribution most needed in our era to guarantee
that the power already given to man or unlocked
by his search is to serve constructive purposes
only. In other words, the whole scientific, poli-
tical, financial and cultural vastness with its
vitality, both known and unknown, is made
meaningful alone by the sense of unity, inter-
dependence, and accountability which we call
religious value.

Counselor in Religious Education

BOOKS

CLEMENTINE by Peggy Goodin, Dutton &
Co., Inc., New York, 246 pages. $2.50.
WINNER of a thousand-dollar award in the
major fiction division of the 1945 Hopwood
contest, "Clementine" may be of interest to
Michigan students for this reason alone. A
rather episodic story of a small town tomboy's
mildly humorous antics from the ages of ten to
sixteen, the book. is not likely to attract the
attention of the serious reader.
In a racy syle calculated to keep pace with
the age of the airplane, Miss Goodwin draws a
picture of redheaded, freckle-faced Clementine
Kelley who gets A's in everything save arithme-
tic, but often convinces the reader that she is
considerably less intelligent in her extra-curric-
ular activities. For example, when she wants to
know about "the facks of life," she consults the
hired man who is also the gentle philosopher
of the manuscript, with the curious result that
he papers the bathroom upside down and fails
to give her accurate information, anyway. At
the age of "pooberty," she stages a wrestling
match with one of her male playmates, who later
becomes her steady, and gets the licking which
the reader feels her parents should have admin-
istered long ago.
In her attempt to depict Clem's approaching
womanhood, Miss Goodin misses much of the
pathos and parental failure to understand
that accompanies adolescence. Unfortunately,
every major character in the book eventually
understands and appreciates Clem, and " it is
this that lends an unrealistic tone to the whole
chronicle.
Placed alongside of Tom Sawyer, Willie Bax-
ter, and Sentimental Tommy, Clementine Kelley
illustrates what she herself feels in one chapter,
that it is "a dirty doggone man's world.'
For an hour or two of light reading with an
occasional chuckle, Clementine is admirably
suited. But if one is really nostalgic for the old
fishing hole, he had better seek out an empty
hogshead and yell for Huck Finn.
