About Those Dogs
To the Editor:
sions, had cared to expend the energy in re-
search required to walk from the reading rooms
two and four of the Library, to the first floor
office of the undersigned in the Pharmacology
Building, he could have gained the following
information which might have made his thesis,.
"Dog Pound," which appeared in this column on
Aug. 15, more replete with facts and less lacking
in insight and accuracy of statement.
Pharmacology has no administrative connec-
tion with the School of Pharmacy. It is one of
the basic sciences, and a department of the
Medical School. The School of Pharmacy, which
is located in the Chemistry Building, uses no
animals. Pharmacy is a chemical science, dealing
with the production, dispensation, etc., of drugs
or chemical agents; pharmacology is a biological
science, dealing with the effects of chemical
compounds on living protoplasm. Students of
the latter subject are charged with the respon-
sibility of evaluating new chemical agents for use
in disease in man.

HiE LETHARGY which has enveloped the
American people since the beginning of diplo-
matic debate on issues of world-wide importance
is strikingly pointed out in the lack of reaction
to the recent flare-up in Iran.
A British Foreign Office spokesman's state-
ment that his country will resort to unilat
force to quell disturbance in the Iranian oil
region has been met with stolid acceptance by
the majority.
The extraordinary revelation of the disregard
with which the British view the United Nations
cannot be countenanced by anyone who believes
in the rights, of small independent nations. No
matter how many economic concessions a big
power holds in a small country it has no right to
send troops to a neighboring border as a threat.
In this case the British have moved troops under
one pretext or another to Basra, as a warning
against further rioting instigated by the Russian-
favored Tudeh party in a strike against poor
mining conditions in the Iranian oil- district.
Half-heartedly, the British have offered the
excuse that they are going "to safe-guard Indi-
an and British interests." As an excuse, it is at
best very flimsy, but as a bald statement of
British aims it probably comes very close to the
truth. The indication which naturally follows is
that the British are back in their old rut-
namely, of looking out for the British and to
blazes with all the work done by the UN to main-
tain the peace.
.When reminded of. the purposes of the UN
Security Council, Britain replied that "there may
not be time to consult the United Nations" if
disorders broke out suddenly and that she would
feel justified in taking "unilateral action" to pro-
tect, the Anglo-Iranian oil wells, of which she
owns half the shares, and which are the main
source of supply. for her fleet. It may be the
Iranian government and others would differ
in their opinions on this point.
The British could take the matter up with
the Security Council, which is permanently in'
session, but the British with keen perspicuity
have pointed out that at this time the Council
has no troops.
Unfortunately this is true. Should Iran pro-
test an invasion of her territory by the British
at some future date, the matter would immedi-
ately come before the Council, which organization.
was purposely provided with a Military Staff
Committee in order to waylay the flaws of the old
League of Nations.
This committee was created to advise .the
Council on all matters involving the use of armed
forces placed at its disposal to preserve the
peace. It has regular secret meetings, but per-
haps they have been too secret because as far
as can be learned no progress has been made
toward establishing an international armed force
to be used in cases exactly like this.
The United Nations, therefore, is an im-
potent force at this particular juncture. Brit-
ain knows this, and the Russian troops mass-
ing at the northern Iranian border know this.
An important test of the devices created by
the peace-loving countries of the world faces
us and we remain silent.

SENATOR VANDENBERG is a very fine speak-
er. His speech here in Ann Arbor was quite
well delivered. His enunciation is excellent, and
he speaks about freedom and liberty with a
sincerity and conviction which do credit to the
best American traditions. But after listening
to this speech, which was hailed as a major
declaration of the Republican position on foreign
affairs, you weren't quite certain what he had
What would Senator Vandenberg have us do
about dictator Franto in Spain? He did
not say. What would Senator Vandenberg
have us do about the future Allied policy In
Germany? He did not say. What does Senator
Vandenberg think we should do to improve
Big Three unity? He did not say. What does
Senator Vandenberg think of American inter-
vention in China? He did not say.
For all of Senator Vandenberg's nice voice and
perfect enunciation, he didn't say very much.
He didn't say much at all. He told us that he
believes in collective security. Collective security
was a phrase with real meaning in those days
when the peril of fascism was spreading over
Europe. It took real courage to stand and talk
about the imperative necessity of quarantining
the aggressor, as President Roosevelt did at that
time. In those days the peril of fascism was
the No. 1 concrete problem facing American
security. Collective security meant unity between
Britain, Russia, France and the United States
to halt the aggression of the Axis powers. But
today collective security is a dead issue, a slogan
from which the meaning was drained by five
bloody years of war. In the days when collective
security meant unity against the Axis, Senator
Vandenberg was an isolationist. Today when the
issues have shifted and the battle-lines have
changed, Senator Vandenberg is for collective
security. Six years after the people of Britain
began the fight against Nazi Germany, he be-
lieves that we should help the people of Britain.
There is reason to question the sincerity of
pious declarations after the battle has been
fought and won. When the election of Roose-
velt in 1944 demonstrated the overwhelming
support for an international organization that
existed in the United States, Senator Van-
denberg became an internationalist. Let him
talk, just once, about a problem before it is
settled. Let him, just once, take a clear-cut
stand on a major problem that faces this
country. Let him tell us what he would have
us do about Franco, about China, about Ger-
many and Japan, about the growing rift be-
tween Russia and the United States.
He speaks in a fine voice about justice for small
nations. Czechoslovakia was a small nation, but
Senator Vandenberg did not choose to lift his
voice against the Munich outrage. Poland was
a small nation, but he didn't become an inter-
nationalist until long after Poland had been
over-run. Greece was a small nation seven years
ago . . . it is no smaller today than it was at
that time . .. but Germany over-ran Greece with-
out a protest from Senator Vandenberg. Per-
haps he is concerned about justice only for
fascist small nations, such as Spain, or Ar-
gentina, or Portugal. What does he believe that
justice for Spain requires from the United
States? Again he does not say.
It is thus that men become Senator, or even
President, without the people having any idea
how they stand on matters that will mean war
or peace, prosperity or starvation, for us and
for our children.-

animals prior to their introduction into the
clinic. This evaluation cannot be accomplish-
ed satisfactorily in the rabbit alone. Because
of the size, cost, ease of maintenance; and
general similarity in response to that obtained
in man, it is essential to use the dog as one
of the test objects in determining the actions
and toxicity of drugs.
The dogs used in the Department of Pharma-
cology are housed in clean, well-lighted, proper-
ly ventilated quarters and have Purina dog
chow and clean water before them twenty-four
hours a day, seven days a week. Mr. Sessions
could have easily ascertained these facts by a
visit to the laboratory. An invitation is hereby
Dogs bark at strangers and at unusual noises,
especially when their usual attendant is on vaca-
tion. The Pharmacology Building is undergo-
ing extensive remodeling this summer, and the
presence of carpenters, plumbers, plasterers, etc.,
creates a constant and unusual disturbance.
Parts of the present Pharmacology Building
were built in 1857. It is not sound proof. In the
absence of an air conditioning system, windows
must be left open in the summer time for venti-
lation. It is recognized by the University Ad-
ministration that the medical teaching and re-
search units should be moved to the hospital
area, not only for our convenience but to elim-
mate the nuisance complained of by Mr. Ses-
sions. Such a program is a part of the five year
building plan which has received so much pub-
licity in the last year. The only item lacking
at present is a legislative appropriation to put
the above into effect, or a benefactor sufficiently
impressed with the telling arguments presented
by Mr. Sessions to subsidize the building of such
units away from the main campus.
The above comments are offered, not in
extenuation of an admitted nuisance, but in
the hope that a certain degree of tolerance
be acquired for a situation which is not easily
remediable at the present time.
It might be suggested, in passing, that Mr.
Sessions extend his horizon, by reading, in addi-
tion to the "Basic 'Works of Aristotle," "The
Way of an Investigator," by the late Walter
B. Cannon.
-M. H. Seevers, Professor of Pharmacology
Three Young Men
This is a tale of high politics and three bright
young men-still unknown to the public-who
will hit the headlines again and again in the
years before the next Presidential election.
The story might well begin with some frank
words about Secretary of Commerce Henry Wal-
There appears to be no explanation for Wal-
lace's silence and his refusal to fight the CIO's
battles in the past strike-filled year. Never hav-
ing been among those who screamed "Wallace
in '48" I'm more than willing to agree with CIO
leaders who accuse him of desertion at the cru-
cial moment in their post-war fights.
All of which has left Mr. Truman without any-
one in and about the White House to enthuse
those energentic, door-bell ringing, labor polit-
icos who did such a job for Franklin Roosevelt
in '44. This chore seems automatically to have
been dumped in Labor Secretary Schwellenbach's
lap-and as soon as the summer's dog days are
over Schwellenbach will stump through the big
cities to rally labor support for the Democrats
in the fall election campaign.
And this is the point where the three bright
young men come in. They are Schwellenbach's
three $10,000-a-year Assistant Secretaries of
Labor. So carefully have they been chosen, they
represent all labor circles and will shape the De-
partment's policies while the earnest Mr. Schwel-
lenbach is mending fences for the White House.
Two of them, 41-year-old Phillip Hannah, the
AFL's man, and Johnny Gibson, the CIO's rep-
resentative, began'as kid coal miners and know
what it means to swing a pick deep in rat-infest-
ed pits.
Hannah, who was secretary of the Ohio State

Federation (AFL) and a political radio person-
ality before he was appointed, went into the west-
ern Pennsylvania mines at 13. He learned about
unions from his father, alongside whom he work-
ed on the coal veins.
The CIO's choice for an Assistant Secretary's
post was "Johnny" Gibson, who left the mines
and headed for Michigan, where he was active
in the auto union and among the milk wagon
drivers. Much of his time was spent on the
picket lines. When Schwellenbach appointed him
he was Michigan State CIO Council President.
The third bright "lad," Assistant Secretary
David Morse, an attorney, has always reminded
me of Frederic March playing Major Joppolo in
"A Bell for Adano." As a lieutenant colonel he
set labor policy for Sicily, Italy and all of oc-
cupied Germany. He helped dissolve Mussolini's
Corporative Syndical System and Hitler's Labor
Front. His job now is to direct the Labor De-
partment's foreign activities.
Watch these three men. They're going to make

Among the readjustments incident
to the end of the war is a largely
permanent increase in the earning
responsibilities placed on the women
of American families. The war has
directly affected women members of
the families with deceased or dis-
abled veterans. By June, 1945 over
50.000 widows of veterans of World
War II were receiving death pensions.
To maintain an adequate standard of
living many of these women may need
to work to supplement their other
income. Disability pensions were be-
ing paid out by June to more than
half a million disabled veterans,
many of whom have wives and fami-
lies they may be unable to support
unaided, or may not be able to sup-
port at all. War casualties will also
have indirect effects. The death or
disability of hundreds of thousands
of young men in the age groups in
which they normally marry and un-
dertake family responsibilities will
result in many more young women
remaining unmarried than otherwise
would have done so. These women,
i4 line with present custom, will usu-
ally be responsible for self-support,
and in some cases for the support of
of others as well.
Figures issued by the War and
Navy departments at the time Japan
surrendered 'showed a total of over
250,000 members of the armed forces
killed and over 650,000 wounded.
Death accounted for over a fifth of
the more than a million casualties.
