AVC Leadership


"Save OPA" rally being held today marks
a new milestone in Michigan's history.
For the first time the University's veterans
have assumed the leadership of the campus in
attempting to unite the entire student body on
a national political issue.
The desirability of adding the unified campus
support to the increasing country-wide pressure
on Congress to restore OPA is widely recognized.
What is of particular signifigance about today's
rally is that the veterans who have fought and
sacrificed for America are demonstrating that
they have an acute personal interest in the
affairs of the nation and are willing to fight for
the things in which they believe.
Perhaps, under the leadership of the older and
more seriously interested veterans, American
university students can achieve a position com-
parable with the students of other nations
where the students are actively interested in
the nation's political situation and the first to
agitate for needed reforms. .
The American Veterans Committee is provid-
ing a great service to the student body by spon-
soring this rally in support of a matter of the
utmost concern to all of us.
The veteran's "Save OPA" rally this afternoon
merits the full support and attendance of the
entire campus.

Defending Hlond
To The Editor:
T WAS ALMOST amusing to read college boy
Milton Freudenheim's ill considered damna-
tion of Cardinal Hlond as a "priestly hypro-
crite." Cardinal Hlond has symbolized the light
of Western Civilization in Eastern Europe since
1939, when Freudenheim was undoubtedly still
crawling around in his journalistic diapers. The
criterion which the world judges the Cardinal
is the amount of hatred which the Nazis dis-
played toward him and not by the musings of
the fourth estate's Freudenheim.
The recent pogroms in Poland are indeed
deplorable. However, Freudenheim made abso-
lutely no mention of the mass rmurders and
Voters Apathetic?
LOS ANGELES - the Democratic party is
slowly but surely throwing away the elec-
tions this year and in 1948. Daniel Tobin, one
of the teamsters, is utterly right; it is not that
Democrats are turning to the Republican Party
they are losing interest in their own party, and
they will stay away from the polls.
The great change that has come over our
national political life during the last year is
that the idealistic voter has been made home-
less; the Democrats have thrown him out, the
Republicans don't want him, and he is on the
streets. By the idealistic voter, I mean the voter
whom Mr. Roosevelt was able to attract by his
promise of a fairer and more abundant life
domestically, and whom Mr. Wilkie was some-
times able to interest in his promise of a more
abundant life internationally. Americans are an
idealistic people, and the political leaders who
show some insight into their dreams often pros-
per. But this year nobody seems even to be
making the effort, and the political campaign,
nationally, is a battle between tired profes-
Mr. Henry Wallace, in the days of his fervor,
used to be able to arouse a high note of en-
thusiasm among Americans addicted to good-
will toward mankind; but Mr. Wallace has
gone into a long silence. On the Republican
side, only Mr. Stassen tries now and then to
bring a note of warmth and idealism into his
discussions of international affairs; but the
difference between Mr. Willkie's passionate
delarations in this field, and Mr. Stassen's
careful utterances, is as the difference between
a boy's first love poems, and a middle-aged
man's cautious letters, designed to be read by
a jury.
The passion of the American people is dor-
mant, waiting for the touch which will rouse it.
None of the major political "lines" of the
moment attracts the independent and idealistic
voter very much. He is not stirred, for example,
by Mr. Truman's and Mr. Byrnes' "tough" stand
against Russia; and Mr. Truman's popularity
has been falling in the public opinion polls right
along through the months during which he has
been receiving more and more favorable edi-
torials in the isolationist press.
The idealistic and independent voter, of the
kind who once mobilized himself behind Roose-
velt.or Willkie, may appreciate some of the
reasons for our current differences with Russia,'
but that fact does not stimulate him; it throws,
him into a depression, and he does not really
care greatly which party comes to power just to
quarrel with the Kremlin.
An American political leader who could give
us reaffirmation of world accord and who
could (which would be essential) elicit a simi-
lar reaffirmation from Russia, could blow the
lid off the next elections; but failing the
emergence of such a one, Americans will vote
without soul-searching and as if absent-
It is a dark moment; the spirit uncurls not,
and neither does it stir. The American people
have grown bored and are not even listening;
it is an ideal time for the election of some such
pedestrian candidate as creeps in occasionally
while the nation is tying its shoe, or examining
its chin in a mirror. The applecart could be

upset by some man who would express the silent,
aching hope for a future of nore peace and
dignity, at home and abroad, than now seems
to lie ahead of us. But the words are unspoken,
and these will be -quiet elections, emotionally
potent only as reminders of what could have

Sigler Praised
Not the least of Kim Sigler's drawing cards
in the coming Michigan gubernatorial election
is his determination to replace some of the bad
bearings in the state Republican machine.
Sigler named names in his campaign to re-
gear the party machine by publicly inviting
"Boss" Frank D. McKay to "render the Republi-
can party a great service by retiring." This dis-
avowal of a leading light in the Michigan GOP
speaks well for Sigler's sincerity.

mass expatriations of thousands of Poles which
have been going on since the conception of the
so-called Provisional Government. When the
number of murders during the highly advertised
pogroms are compared to the toll of day by day
slaughter of Poles by the Provisional-Russo-
Zionist Government at Warsaw matters come to
a different focus. For every Jew killed in Poland
there has been a score of Polish deaths and a
hundred "trips" to Siberia. However, I realize
that when an editor decides to write an erho-
tional article he must ignore all facts which
do not confirm his biased view.
At any rate, top notch journalists, historians
and leaders of the world hold Cardinal Hlond's
valient and active resistance to Nazi and Soviet
oppression as a source of inspiration for the
Polish people who have suffered as much-or
more than the Jews. The "shaky ground" upon
which the Catholic Church stands is a thousand
times more stable than the foundation of half
truths upon which Freudenheim bases his co-

Attend the Rally
To The Editor:
THE RALLY which AVC is holding today for
the reinstatement of price controls is not
important in and of itself. But when you view
it in its proper context and realize that it is a
part of the organized protests which are being
registered throughout the nation, its essence
assumes mountainous proportions.
Therefore, I urge all people on this campus,
student, instructor, office assistants, everyone
to be on hand at 4 o'clock this afternoon in front
of the Rackham Building. The rally is going to
be covered by Detroit papers as well as Ann Ar-
bor papers. It will receive much post-publicity.
To be effective, we must have crowds of people,
people vitally concerned, people who resent this
betrayal of the consumer's purchasing power.
I strongly urge all AVC members to talk the
meeting up to their friends and attempt to bring
at least two acquaintances with them. I urge
all others who are deeply interested to do the
And in closing, I wish to thank all those who
with their work and their money made this
rally possible. To those members of the faculty
who announced the rally to their classes my
sincerest gratitude. And to the administrative
officials of Rackham Building, once again let
me express AVC's indebtedness to you.
It behooves us, then, to make this rally an
example of orderliness without detracting from
any enthusiasm which might attend it. We owe
such conduct to the University and to all other
campus groups which may in the future seek
permission for staging similar demonstrations.

Police Vacancies
To The Editor:
To better race relationship, the City of Ann
Arbor should place two Negro policemen upon
its force to fill part of the now existing vacancy.
I believe in merit, but oftimes because of de-
finite policy they are not put on in this and
similar jobs.
It is being brought to the attention of the
Negro voters of the county that the present
sheriff would only put on Negro deputies pro-
vided they arrest only Negroes. People blended
by race hatred and race superiority should not
be in office.
Adult education is difficult. Why hamper it
with such obstacles?

History's Value?
To the Editor:
IN THE FALL OF 1929 a great crash occurred
in the stock market. It was the most spectac-
ular phenomenon of The Great Depression. (If
that was a "depression", the Grand Canyon is a
heel-print!) Shortly after, President Hoover
recognized that there was danger of a downward
spiral of wages, purchasing power, prices, and
employment. Within the limitations of his phil-

.osophy, he understood the economic "facts of
life". So he called a White House meeting of the
leading industrialists and financiers to "hold the
line" by informal agreement not to cut wages
and prices. History now attests the efficacy of
that approach.
Today we are faced with a possible-nay,
probable-upward inflationary spiral of prices
and wages which may have equally disastrous
President Truman has avoided President
Hoover's error and has recognized the necessity
of action by representatives of the entire nation.
Many others have not.
Now we see groups of realtors, manufacturers,
wholesalers, and retailers rushing into print with
statements that prices will be held by individual
action and that OPA or other action by the en-
tire social group is not necessary.
Maybe-one wonders. Is it true that "the only
thing we learn from history is that we learn
nothing from history"?

American troops guarding the
Morgan Line in Venezia Guilia and
Yugoslav patrols is the most serious
episode which has yet occurred in
the mountain tension over Trieste.
Why the Yugoslavs, already half a
mile deep in our territory, opened
fire on our outposts is incompre-
hensible unless they were deliberate-
ly making a test of our readiness.
Such apparently provocative inci-
dents leave a bitter taste on both
sides of the Line. Propaganda ex-
pands and perverts them beyond
their importance and it becomes
doubly difficult to prevent their re-
currance. They sour international
relations and spread mutual distrust.
But they are inherent in the struggle
over Trieste, which is now a symbol
as well as a city. The compromise
agreement tentatively agreed upon by
the great Powers in which the United
Nations will administer the territory
for a term of years is likely to make
Trieste and its adjoining area another
Danzig. It satisfies no one and set-
tles nothing. No plan has been work-
ed out by which the United Nations
can police the zone, but it will ob-
viously have to be policed. As long
as this necessity remains the banked
fires will smolder.

Cash for Vets?

T HE STATE LEGISLATURE has provided for
a referendum next fall putting the veterans'
bonus issue before the people.
However, the efficiency of granting a blanket
bonus to Michigan veterans is highly question-
able. It was shown clearly that the payment
of a cash bonus to the veterans of World War
I benefitted them little. In fact the GI Bill of
Rights was intended as a substitute for a cash
bonus for World War II vets.
If the people of Michigan feel an obligation
to their soldiers and are willing to open their
pocketbooks to repay this debt, why not do
something worthwhile with this money?
Wouldn't it be better to set up a fund as a
companion piece to the GI Bill of Rights filling
the discrepancies there to aid the veteran in
securing the necessities of life?
The American Veterans Committee has pro-
posed the adoption of a "revolving fund" where-
by veterans could get low interest loans for the
purposes of building a home or farm or setting
themselves up in business. Certainly this plan
offers more to the veteran than giving him sev-
eral hundred dollars in this period of rising
prices to fritter away without gaining any sub-
stantial benefits and calling the debt "square".
