(HINESE EMWPLOYES in Shanghai hotels
owned by European investors went on strike
the other day. To win support of Anglo-Ameri-
can visitors, the Chinese, in their best English,
wrote the following for a leaflet:
"We sit down strike for protest against un-
reasonable reducing of staff. We are forced to
strike' by faithlessness and over protest of
management. We have not any intention of
enmity against U.S. forces. For convenience of
our guests water and electricity still works."
Then to crush the opposition, the strike chiefs
added these punch lines:
"General manager enjoys prosperity in new
luxurious motor car, numerous girl secre-
taries and private bar in his office and staffs
have to starve."

Vandenberg
THE APPEARANCE of Sen. Arthur Vanden-
berg at Ferry Field this afternoon offers
University of Michigan students an opportun-
ity to hear first-hand a report of activities of
the Big Four Foreign Ministers' recent confer-
ence in Paris, and an outline of this nation's in-
tentions in the field of foreign relations.
To those persons responsible for Sen. Vanden-
berg's coming to Ann Arbor-a vote of thanks.
This can best be expressed by a record turnout
for the address at 4 p.m. today.
The senior Republican senator's record as a
membe~r of the Senate Foreign Affairs committee
has been interesting, to say the least. Before the
war, he reflected Mid-western isolationist senti-
ment and balked at President Roosevelt's efforts
to support the Allies. Later, after isolationism
was swept into discard, he carried the Republi-
can Party banner in a move synchronized with
the change in public opinion. At the time, he
was widely acclaimed for his acts and subse-
quently was taken into President Roosevelt's
confidence in matters of foreign affairs.
'He is a likely candidate for either the presi-
dential or vice-presidential nomination on the
Republican ticket in the 1948 election. But whe-
ther he is selected by his party or not, he can
be considered the outstanding exponent of in-
ternationalism in the party and as such, will
help shape the party's destiny-and perhaps the
destiny of the nation.
-Will Hardy.
ont roversial'
IN A LigTER to the editor yesterday, George
Elgass has pointed out a few of the facts that
our Controversial Reporter would have us over-
look. His analysis of the many factors affecting
price policy was considerably more real than
the limited view Mr. Ginger would have us be-
lieve.
.Ginger's continued slandering of the profit
motive system has too long passed unnoticed.
He is quick to emphasize the wartime profits
of a concern such as General Motoris,'but com-
pletely ignores the $120 million loss suffered
by the same company during the first three
months of this year. It has always been the
case that a period of prosperity finds the
masses clamoring for a slice of industrial pro-
fits, while no help is ever offered in sharing the
losses of a depression.

Ginger's stand was clarified' in his recent dis-
cussion of the current war scandals when he
made the statement: "So long as the profit mo-
tive is allowed to dominate this country, there
will be new wars, and new wars will bring new
scandals." This intimation that our future
security is threatened by our clinging to the
capitalistic system was not supported, nor was
an alternative system proposed. This omission
is understandable as long as the American stan-
dards of living remain unequalled as they do
now... . .
Like Mr. Elgass, I do not suggest that our sys-
tem is beyond reproach, but I do feel that there
are no ills which intelligent government action
cannot cure. In the past we have overcome the
monopolistic grip of industrial giants by ade-
quate anti-trust legislation, and it is to be
honed that similar controls will be found to cope

MAN TO MAN:
Best Tradition

HAROLD L. ICKES
PRESIDENT TRUMAN was true to the best
tradition of the American presidency when
he vetoed the so-called Tidelands Bil by which
a reckless, unheeding, confused and confusing
Congress sought to make the "S" in U.S. stand
for "Spendthrift." Now it will be left to the
United States Supreme Court to decide a strict-
ly legal question, which was what the Supreme
Court was established for.
The disingenous but plausible Attorney Gen-
eral of California, Robert W. Kenny, was able
to persuade the Attorneys General of a great
majority of the states that unless they signed his
misrepresentations of fact and misinterpreta-
tions of law on the dotted line, valuable rights
in the various states might be lost. Of course,
back of Mr. Kenny were the oil interests. It was
they who had the most at stake. It was they
who, in the large part, paid the exaggerated costs
that were piled up. It was they who maintained
an active and opulent lobby in Washington to
bring all of the customary pressures upon the
members of Congress. It was they who did not
want to rest their case with the Supreme Court,
while, at the same time, loudly proclaiming that
the point at issue had been decided their way
'by the Courts more than fifty times
The lobbyists and the parrotting Attorneys
.General raised the false issue that not only the
rich oil lands lying along the California coast
were involved, but that the wicked Secretary of
the Interior, who had urged this suit, was reach-
ing out for jurisdiction over lands under bays,
harbors, ports, lakes, rivers and other inland
waters. As the President well said in his veto
message, "When the Joint Resolution was being
debated inthe Senate, an amendment was offer-
ed which would have resulted in giving an out-
right acquittance to the respective states of all
tidelands and all lands under bays, harbors,
ports, lakes, rivers and other inland waters."
This amendment was proposed by the Secretary
of the Interior, first to the Attorney General of
California who was so zealous for states' rights,
and then to the Judiciary Committee of the
Senate over which Senator McCarran of Nevada
perched like Edgar Allen Poe's raven. Continu-
ing, President Truman also well said, "Propon-
ents of the present measure, however, defeated
this amendment."
They defeated it because the oil interests
did not want a truthful issue. Knavish and de-
ceitful tactics were employed in order to con-
fuse and, by the whip of fear, line up votes that
generally are on the side of the public.
Unfailing support of the Bill was given by Sen-
ator McCarran. Having balked the amendment
that would have made the issue crystal clear,
the gentleman from Nevada presented a report to
the Senate which said that "The Committee
concludes that as a matter of sound legislative
policy this resolution should pass, as its adoption
is the only way to set at rest permanently a
controversy which involves titles to property in
every state of the Nation." A
Of course this was not true, deliberately so.
The President made this clear in his veto mes-
sage.%
The Representatives and Senators who sup-
ported this attempted "steal" of public property
have nothing to be proud of, even if their plea
be that they did not understand the purport of
the Bill or were unaware of the sinister influ-
ences behind it. However, it cannot be doubted
that Senator McCarran ever lacked understand-
ing of what the bill was intended to do.
It was unfortunate that there was in the
White House a President who was prepared to
act upon this Bill in the best American tra-
dition. For one, I am certain that with him the
issue always was clear, despite the efforts to be-
cloud it, atd that he did not find it difficult to
interpose his veto power even although Edwin W.
Pauley had exerted all of his influence, both with
members of Congress and with executive officers,
to satisfy the appetites of certain greedy oil in-
terests.

office for ten days, leaving his aides guessing
until they meet him in Chicago next week -. -
In a startling propaganda move, the CIO
will distribute pro-labor films directly to public
movie theatres just as the Hollywood produ-
cers do . . . Thoroughly angered over the ex-
ploitation by some firms of veterans who draw
job-in-training federal benefits, Gen. Omar
Bradley, Veterans Administration chief, is ex-
pected to resign shortly. He has been unhappy
in his job. It's a good bet his successor will
be Gen. Harry Vaugn, President Truman's
military aide.
When boxing champ Joe Louis began decorat-
ing his new Harlem night spot he was approach-
ed by an independent group which wanted him.
to hire his help through them. The champ threw
them oit. Ignoring their picket line, Joe signed
with the recognized union, Dave Siegal's AFL
waiters outfit, which now, incidentally, is try-
ing to unionize Toots Shors famed restaurant.
Siegal has just written to Frank Sinatra, Orson
Welles, Paul Draper and Post Master Bob
Hannegan, asking them as New Dealers to prac-
tice what they preach and boycott Toots' non-
union beanery.
Joe Fay, New York and New Jersey union
leader, now serving a jail term for extortion, still
has considerable influence in national labor
circles . . . Communists throughout the country
are starting campaigns in their unions to have
wage negotiations re-opened. They want striker
to back up these demands . . . Jack Stachel, la-
bor whip of the U.S. Communist Party who was
in hiding during much of Earl Browder's rule
of the comrades, has ordered them to build as
strong a machine inside the AFL as they have in,
the CIO.--.. -.
Hollywood stars are becoming labor conscious
again. Edward G. Robinson went aboard the

for Sept. 15, at which Edward Arnold, Franchot

Delegates to the Indiana Federation of La-

Newspaper Guild president Milton 1turray, who
was fired from his job as Washington corres-
pondent for the newspaper PM, now is a full-
time organizer for the Washington Guild.
SINCE WE'RE entering that sane era where
the customer again will always be right, the
National Maritime Union is teaching its waiters
and stewards how to give courteous service
aboard U.S. passenger fleets. The NMU has
equipped its headquarters with a full-sized first
class stateroom and bedroom in which its mem-
bers will get a two-week training course.
There were 3,077,300 jobless in the U.S. this
week.
President Truman's strategists, believing the
CIO is in their political vest-pocket, are about
to make a play for support 'of powerful AFL'
leaders who are swinging towards the Republi-
cans, especially in New York and California. The
AFL, at its Chicago executive meeting next week,
will plan political action. Its auto union, rival
of Walter Reuther's CIO organization, already
has set up a conservative Political Action Com-
mittee to compete with the CIO's PAC.

President Truman has selected as his new
Director of the Budget a man practically un-
known to him and almost every one else in his

administration except Treasury Undersecretary
0. Max Gardner. James E. Webb, who has been
nominated to succeed the able Harold Smith, is
a forty-year-old lawyer and business-man who
grew up as a protege of former Governor Gard-
ner down in North Carolina.
Webb advanced into an executive position with
the Sperry Gyroscope Company, a client of the
Washington firm Gardner has headed in recent
years, and one of the many companies which
Gardner's longtime patron John M. Haynes, a
Morgan partner, serves as director ---.
In commenting on the appointment, Secre-
tary Gardner told the press that Webb is a "dis-
ciple of the balanced budget." Those who don't
know Webb but do know the "budget balancing"
economy views which John Haynes has been
helping the Harry Byrds of the country sell for
many years, are afraid that President Truman
has bought another bad bargain. In unfriendly
hands, the Bureau of the Budget can prevent full
employment from becoming much more than a
campaign slogan.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

11-. G. Wels
WITH THE PASSING of H. G.
Wells the world loses one of its
most prolific and imaginative writ-
ers. Mr. Wells died yesterday in his
London home after prolonged ill-
ness. He was 79 years of age.
It is not sufficient to say that
H. G. Wells was a novelist, because
many of his writings do not dealg
with the conventional subject mat-
ter usually associated with novels.
He combined scientific specula-
tion, fantasy, sociological Idealism
and the spirit of the reformer into
his works.
Satire on every phase of civiliza-
tion was employed by Mr. Wells, even
though many of his books were sin-
cere expressions of his ideals and
philosophy of life. He has sometimes
been classed as a Utopian, since he
often tried to express things as they
should be, as well as how they might
be.
One of the most important books
Mr. Wells ever wrote was the "Out-
line of History" which was published
shortly after the first World War.
In addition to his activities as a
novelist, sociological writer and his-
torian, Mr. Wells was a one-tme tea-
cher of science. He published his first
book in 1895. His total literary ac-
complishment totals over 50 books.
