been recommending since 1925.

Seven years ago Great Britain
was saved by a few men in skill-
fully made machines who stopped
Hitler's Luftwaffe. Today she
faces a new crisis which somehow
seems to transcend the strength
of men and of the machines on
which she depends in peacetime.
The news from London serves
to re-emphasize the economic load
which the United States must
bear if the Western worldis' to be
held together either economically
Britain is planning to reduce her
armed forces around the world,
both to save money and to divert
manpower into industry. She is
talking about spendinguher gold
reserve to tide her over until Eur-
ope can begin its comeback under
the Marshall plan.
For Everyday Living
For a country to spend its gold
reserve on everyday living is the
same as for a family to spend its
savings. Even though the gold
may not be linked to currency, its
presence is an indication of solv-
ency and its dissipation a threat
to monetary systems and public
The U.S. is extending aid to
Britain, just as we did seven years
ago, because she is a necessity in
our scheme of things. Since we
are committed to a policy of main-
taining the Western s y s t e m
against the inroads of totalitarian
Communism, we have to pick up
military burdens wherever Britain
lays them down, as we did in
Greece and as she she now wants
us to do in Germany and perhaps
Also Political Issue
The economic situation in Eng-
land is also, of course, a political

"The main task in Korea . .. is

ment for all of Korea," Borton
said. "U.S. members of the Joint
Commission have been instructed

jectives of this government shall
"These objectives are the es-
tablishment of a self-governing,
sovereign Korea as soon as pos-
sible, the assurance that the na-

own "delightful district," he de-
clared that the laboring men get
all of their information out of
CIO News while the NAM repre-
sentatives get their point of view
from the NAM publications. Mich-
ener explained that he prefers to
read the bills.
Michener is opposed to the Mur-
ray-Wagner-Dingell health bill as
it is now written. While advocat-
ing more privileges and hospitals
for the people, he has often told
his constituents that he is opposed
to "socialized medicine."
Wants Communists Registered
He is also opposed to having
Communists in the government,
contending that "they ought not
to be in the government if they
want to change it." While not
desiring to outlaw the Communist
Party, he favored a bill by Rep-
resentative Mundt (R.-S.D.) of the
Un-American Activities Commit-
tee which, if it had passed would
have required Communists to reg-
ister as foreign agents "so that
we would know who they are."
Something of a rebel in the mat-
ter of budget cutting, the con-
gressman from Ann Arbor served
notice on his party that he would
not be bound by the six billiion
reduction figure set by the House
leaders. He favored c u t t i n g
wherever possible but insisted up-
on distinguishing between essen-
tial and non-essential activities.
Reduced to a single tricky
phrase, M i c h e n e r's legislative
philosophy is: "We may not think
alike, but we can agree alike to
issue. But the fate of any given
British government is of less mom-
ent in the United States, for the

Ronald. Colman in "Arow-
smith," film version of the Sin-
clair Lewis novel, will be present-
ed by the Inter-Cooperative Coun-
cil at 8 p.m. Sunday and Monday
at Hill Auditorium.
The story is that of a young
doctor who after graduation from
college is unable to settle down
to the quiet life of a country doc-,
tor. In an effort to develop a
cure for bubonic plague, he goes
to the West Indies, where his wife
is killed by the plague.
Collaborated With Paul de Kruif
Lewis' novel, written in cola-
boration with Paul de Kruif, a
University graduate, contains a
fictionized version of life at the
University and in Ann Arbor, as
well as characterizations based on
members of the faculty.
However, when "Arrowsmith"
appeared as a novel several years
ago, it raised a storm of protest
from medical men all over the
world. Lewis' attacks on medical
pedantry were criticized as over-
bitter and untrue.
The same criticism has been
leveled against his latest best-
selling book, "Kingsblood Royal."
Best Known Works
"Arrowsmith," however, is one
of Lewis' best-known works, called
by many his masterpiece.
Featured in the film version is
Ronald Colman as Martin Arrow-
smith and Helen Hayes as the
nurse that later becomes his wife.
Produced by Samuel Goldwyn,
the picture is directed by John
