Spy Testimony
ONE OF THE top news stories Tuesday
concerned the testimony of Victor Krav-
chenko, formerly a member of the Russian
purchasing commission, before the House
Committee on Un-American Activities. The
general nature of his charges was that Rus-
sia's international policy is leading to war
and that the United States is infested with
Russian spies in the form of official repre-
sentatives of the Soviet Union.
That this testimony should be considered
"news" is doubtful. If it is "news" then it
indicates an incredible naivete on the part
of American government officials.
Whether or not the actions of any na-
tion will lead to war no one person can
say. There are too many "ifs," too much
depends on what other countries may do.
KIravchenko's charges on this matter may
be put down as the opinion of one person,
others can be found to confirm it but
there are as many in dissent. His asser-
tions, however, that "every responsible
representative of the Soviet government in
the United States may be regarded as an
economic or political spy," is based on ex-
perience and therefore must be considered
as having some basis.
Having accepted its truth, it is pertinent
to ask, "exactly what do we know now that
we didn't, or shouldn't have known before?"
The answer is-nothing. It is true that the
average citizen who has never considered
carefully the duties of foreign representa-
tives may feel some shock at the thought
that these gentlemen' do other things be-
sides deliver notes of protest. But it is un-
believable that government officials have
been living in the same ignorance. Similar
reports on Russian activities have been
heard many times before, and even if they
hadn't, logic and history should have been
sufficient to indicate what is going on. One
of the duties of foreign representatives is
o report information concerning the activ-
ities of the nation in which they are sta-
tioned to their own governments, and in
these reports they are expected to include
not only what is handed out through the
press for public consumption, but also any
other material available. Realizing this
fact we have no reason for surprise if in-
formation which we consider secret gets
out of the country.
The "news" in Kravchenko's testimony is
not that Soviet representatives have been
looking for this information, but that we

have been gullible to give them access to it.
-Alegra Pasqueletti
"Y FORCE of circumstances, the United
States is deeply involved in the Dutch
Army's offensive against the Indonesian Re-
public. Our State Department has so far
only murmured faint disapproval of what is
going on. Unless we speak with a firmer
voice; and speak in accordance with our fre-
quently proclaimed ideals, we shall find our-
selves on the wrong side of a contest for
power which may be crucial to peace in the
Southwest Pacific.
What is going on is fairly plain. The
Dutch government, having reached what ap-
peared to be a reasonable settlement, with
the Indonesian Republic looking toward
virtual independence, is now using planes,

AN UNNECESSARY mystery has been
made of the Administration's time-
table for action on the Marshall plan for
Europe. At home, rumors abound. Abroad,
the British and French leaders of Europe's
effort to organize for reconstruction have
been bitterly disheartened by President Tru-
man's intimation that the Marshall plan
would not necessitate a special session of
Congress. As Ernest Bevin sadly remarked,
"Europe is bleeding to death," and if the
tourniquet is- not applied in a reasonable
time, the patient wil expire.
There is no earthly reason for the Ad-
ministration's air ofaimlessness and uncer-
tainty about the special session. President
Truman, Secretary of State Marshall and
the Congressional leaders have in fact al-
ready mapped out a perfectly sound ten-
tative strategy of action.
In brief, there will be no prolonged
special session unless Europe begins to
come apart at the seams, and the quick-
est American aid is therefore imperative,
But during the recess, all preparations
will be made for the promptest possible
Congressional action on the Marshall plan,
immediately following the opening of the
regular session on Jan. 1.
The State Department's planning sec-
tion is now completing its studies of the po-
litical aspects of the problem. The Presi-
dent's committee of nineteen, under the
chairmanship of Secretary ofeCommeite
Harriman, is now tackling the economic as-
pects. Secretary Harriman expects to be
ready by Oct. 1 with an American balance
sheet, showing this country's ability to pay
the bill for a broad scheme of world recon-
Thus by Oct. 1 all the data needed for
action will at long last be available. At that
time or shortly thereafter, there is good
reason to expect that Senator H. Vanden-
berg, of Michigan, and Representative
Charles A. Eaton, of New Jersey, will call
into session the Foreign Relations Commit-
tee of the Senate and the Foreign Affairs
Committee of the House. In view of the
enormous importance of the Marshall plan
to this country and the world, it is neither
feasible nor desirable for the Congress to
pass upon it without the most careful study.
If the presently mapped tentative strategy
is followed, this study will be completed bye
the two committees at hearings held dur-
ing October and November .
If this is done, in turn, the commit-
tees will then be ready to report out an
amended, completed bill as soon as Con-
gress meets, and the debate can begin in-
stantly. Since the debate is likely to be
extremely prolonged, there is some
thought of taking the edge off the Con-
gressional itch for self-expression at a

holding committee hearings in the ab-
sence of Congress will make it possible to
bring the Marshall plan to final vote be-
fore Feb. 1. Thus the tourniquet should
be available to stanuch the terrible wounds
of Europe before the grim winter has
brought disaster.
The final decision as to whether to adopt
this novel expedient has not yet been tak-
en. Its obvious good sense seems likely,
however, to commend it to all concerned.
For President Truman, it exorcises the
nightmare which has been visibly haunting
him. He will not have to cope with a spe-
cial session of a hostile Congress with only
one piece of business before it-a situation
bound to prove the truth of the old rule
that "satan finds work for idle hands to do."
For the members of Congress, it removes the
need to curtail their vacations and to in-
terrupt the vital labor of mending fences
back home. And for the country and for
Europe, it assures action to avert the dan-
gers now menacing us at a date very nearly
as early as could be achieved by a special
Free Riders
HAVE LETTERS from readers who are
disturbed about the Marshall Plan be-
cause some of its supporters, quite obvious-
ly, are chiefly interested in a German in-
dustrial revival.
But it is wrong to walk out on the Mar-
shall Plan for that reason. In a democracy
every issue carries free riders on its back,
and some of these are strange passengers,
indeed. One does not ask for his gloves and
stick, and beat a hasty exit therefore; not
unless one is prepared to be much alone.
One stays and fights for what is good in
the Marshall Plan, and to repel boarders,
for that is what it means to live the demo-
cratic life.
Nor does one defend the Marshall Plan
blindly, professing to see no danger what-
ever of a German revival, or of a grotes-
que miscarriage of the original idea.
Life is a little tackier than that, and after
the first six weeks of human existence one's
eyes are supposed to remain open, at least
during the daytime hours. Both the
blanket defenses and the lugubrious good-
byes forever are overdone. It isn't a ques-
tion of what the Marshall plan is, for it
isn't anything yet; it is whatever we shall
make it. Stick around, friends; it might be
a good fight.
For on Thursday of last -week every-
body and his aunt were sure the Marshall
plan foreshadowed a major revival of Ger-
man industry. But on Friday, the French
protested (through M. Bidault, who is no
communist) and on Saturday our State
Department and the British Foreign Office
called off the German revival until at least
September. That is a 'fairly good example
of the little surprises offered by the demo-
cratic way of life.
In a democracy, therefore, one doesn't
make up one's mind about an issue after
one quick glance, any more than one does
about a baby. One sits up with it, hope-
fully, and feeds it, and changes its
clothes and teaches it manners, until
finally something comes of it.
It is only in a dictatorship that a gov-
ernment plan or "line" is more or less'
complete when it is first presented to the
world. That is not true in our society.
Amongst us a process of elaboration (or
erosion) begins tie moment after the offi-
cial pronouncement, and it never ends.
And, in a democracy, one does not hope
to have his own way completely. One looks
for good fighting positions, and a fat share
in the final compromise. One hopes that,
if one is right and has taken his stand well,
even the free riders who have boarded the
issue fol purposes of their own, will, in the
end, find themselves jockeyed out of posi-
tion, and working for aims perhaps quite

different from those they originally had in
This is the life, as the saying goes. At
least it is our life, and no better one has
ever been contrived.
The Marshall Plan offers a fine fight-
ing position to any liberal. Its volunteer
supporters, including some of the dubious
ones, have given hostages to the angels by
voicing ideals of which they may be remind-
ed in tight spots later. Just to recall the
political mood of a few months ago is to
recognize that the Marshall Plan repre-
sents dynamic progress toward a heightened
political morality, and that remains true
even though some of the participants in
the march may be dragging their feet.
Not to share in all this is not to share
in the life of our time, and to give a final
verdict on the Marshall Plan as it now
stands is like giving a verdict on a day in
the calendar. Was Tuesday good or bad?
But there will be Wednesday, to fill out
Tuesday's meaning. And the calendar is
not the least powerful of the odd but ef-
fective weapons the good democrat carries
in his quiver.

SYDNEY Greenstreet gets funnier and
funnier with each new picture. As a
grumpy; retired auto magnate, with a liking
for work and "working people," he takes the
nonors from Martha Vickers and boy friend
Dane Clark.
People say Dane Clark is terrific, but he
was not in this picture. It wasn't his fault.
He had a bad part.
Greenstreet has enough good cracks in
the pic..ure to keep it pretty much alive.
Martna Vickers, a local lass before she hit
the flickers, also enlivens the action by
canging costume 17 times. She's a knock-
Of course the whole plot is screwy. Green-
strdet disguises himself as his gardener-chef,
buys part of a gas station, helps young
Clark make a go of it, finally marries his
daughter off to him, after a short stretch
for stealing tires.

To the Editor:
T'S A DOWNRIGHT sorry sight
to see The Michigan Daily suc-
cumb to the current anti-Soviet
hysteria with which the press is
The editor responsible for play-
ing up Victor Kravchenko's "rev-
elations" before the House Com-
mittee on un-American Activities
(Daily, Wednesday, July 23) was
surely aware of two facts that
ought to have conditioned his
judgment of the newsworthiness
of the Kravchenko dispatch.
First, the House committee be-
fore which Kravchenko appeared
has been time and again discred-
ited as either a reliable or a fair
forum. It seems peculiarly to
have attracted, from its inception
in 1937, an assortment of extreme
Right wingers whose viewpoints,
however worthwhile they seemed
or however privileged they were,
have gained no notoriety for eith-
er their veracity or their pro-
More serious, in the immediate
instance, is the editor's excision of
a significantly revealing portion
of Kravchenko's testimony, re-
ported in the same Associated
Press dispatch that was printed
in part in The Daily: "He de-
clared that a person who reads the
Communist newspaper, the Daily
Worker, knows it for what it is;
but not so with the Chicago Sun
or New York PM. Kravchenko
said it is his opinion that Mar-
shall Field, publisher of the
Chicago Sun and PM, is more
dangerous and causes America
more trouble than some 30 per
cent of the Communists about
whom we know what they are
All of Which just about con-
vinces me that this exiled Rus-
sian "democrat" would rather
see imposed on the peoples of both
his native land and ours the
brand of freedom that is, in Chi-
cago, espoused by the Tribune,
and, in New York, by the Sun
(whose childishly hysterical three-
line, front-page-wide headlines
about theft of atomic secrets were
virtually discredited).
Please-let's not add an Ann
Arbor newspaper to this gentle-
man's list of preferred reading.

Undercover Maisie, MGM, Ann
Barry Nelson-
AT LAST! Maisie with black

hair and

If you enjoy a harmless crusade against
the forces of crime and don't rebel at the
rehashing of a character in a long series of
pictures, you'll get a bang out of Undercov-
er Maisie. i
With only her physical attributes and her
skill in the art of the brush-off to recom-
mend her, Maisie does all right as a female
detective, her accomplishments in judo
making the masculine cast look like babes in
the woods.
Barry Nelson resembles an immature Or-
sen Welles at times, but what he lacks in
allure he more than recovers in his luck in
lines. His crack, "I'm .ust as human as the
next guy" tops the others in overstatement.
