THE MICHIGAN DAILY
I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
PHILADELPHIA-I have come here to see
the rarest sight in the world, a con-
servative party that is prospering.
That is the story here, and it is for me the
only story here.
For a while something about the atmo-
sphere, the family parties accompanying the
de.legates, the tender, round faces of the
youths and maidens, shining above the Taft
and Dewey buttons, bothered me, plucked at
memory, and then I had it. This convention
is for all the world like the opening for the
season of one of those huge, Victorian sea-
side hotels of the age of innocence. There
is restrained mirth, among the elders, and
joy among the young, and one looks around
for the little placards asking bridge four-
somes to sign up and announcing that there
will be dancing in the grand ballroom at
nine o'clock. I fully expect, at any moment,
to see a character in white pants go bound-
ing through the lobby of the Bellevue-
Stratford, intoning: "Tennis, anyone?"
This is the happiest Republican conven-
tion I have seen; it is the first one in a
good many years that is at all like a party.
In '36 there was something about a de-
pression; in '40, in this same city, it was
a question of who to put up to lose to
Roosevelt, and the Republicans then felt
so low the Wilikie liberals took over; in
'44 there was the war. Now something has
happened; the delegates themselves don't
quite understand it, but suddenly it is all
right again, it is all right, do you under-
The twisting of postwar events has made
everything all right, and in the enormous
happy politeness of the hardly-moving but
never-jostling crowds here there is just the
proper blend of delight and restraint which
is a suitable demeanor for those who have
suddenly received an unexpected legacy.
Everybody visits all the candidates' cam-
paign headquarters. In 1940 here these head-
quarters (usually a ballroom done up with
posters and a string band) were the gloom-
iest spots in town; you couldn't even get a
crowd up with free soft drinks.
Now they are all crowded, all the time;
it is as if to miss one would be a bad
thing,like missing a sight you were sup-
posed to see on a vacation trip. The dele-
gates and their kin and the local people
file through them all; for it is only in
part that the Republicans are here to
fight fiercely for any particular man;
mostly they are here in celebration of the
twist that has put them on top again,
and it is in a gay, relaxed way that they
look forward to the young people's
swimming races, excuse me, the nomina-
tions on Wednesday.
And because of this, I miss something.
There seem to be very few persons here who
are ready to cry if their man doesn't win,
or even if he does-for at the usual con-
vention the more emotional ladies shed as
easily at victory as at defeat. I remember
them crying when they spoke the name of
Landon in 1936. But this isn't a crying con-
vention. You don't cry when you've just
come into a fortune. The expressions, in the
lobbies and in the elevators, remind me
strongly of the way people look when they
are watching a minor fight on the television,
far away; uninvolved in the contest, really,
but happy to be doing what they are doing,
gay in a moment that is comfortable, and

A WOMAN'S VENGEANCE, with Charles
Boyer, Jessica Tandy & Ann Blyth.
"HELL HATH NO FURY like a woman
scorned" has been going around for
years, but they've dusted it off once more
for the central theme of "A Woman's Ven-
geance." Adapted from an Aldous Huxley
novel, most of the picture deals with the
psychological distress said woman brings
upon herself by her machinations, but until
the last scene Mr. Boyer is up a huch
higher. tree. Advancing years being appar-
ently no detriment to his charm, we see
him at the opening of the picture as the
main interest in the lives of three women;
his rich and invalid wife, friend of the fam-
ily Jessica Tandy, and Ann Blyth. All is not
what it might be with his domestic life
and he uses Miss Tandy as peacemaker and
youthful Miss Blyth as pureescapism. Upon
his wife's death he marries the lovely Miss
with remarkable haste, whereupon a sus-
picious nurse and Miss Tandy raise some
nasty questions about the circumstances by
which he became a widower. From then on
the law and a woman's vengeance takes
over with much tears, hand clenching and
insomnia as the natural follow up. The
show is well cast and the acting commend-
able, but on the whole it is pretty average
and not too engrossing psychological sleuth-

Lewis was more than a little to

Once this year already Lewis
has shown that he can still insti-
gate a natibn-wide industrial
crisis if he chooses-the Taft-
Hartley act not withstanding.
More important perhaps, he has
shown that he is still capable of

enough to achieve his various ob-
jectives. And now it appears that
a new strike is just around the
corner-the expected walkout date
is July 6.

To the Editor:
0NE OF MY friends in Ann Ar-
bor recently sent me a copy of
your special issue of May 17 pre-
senting the Phoenix Project. As a
person brought up in Michigan,
though not a graduate of the Uni-
versity, I have a special interest i
this development. I think it iL
most encouraging that the stu-
dents, faculty members and others
were so united in their determina-
tion to establish a functional War
Memorial. In the second place, it
is encouraging to know that the
Phoenix Project is devoted to the
exploration of atomic develop-
merts for peaceful purposes.
I think it is sound also that
it is not proposed to limit the
work of the Project to the so-
called physical sciences, but to
study the effects. of atomic de-
velopments and atomic weapons
in particular on our political, eco-
nomic and cultural life.
It seems to me that there is one
grave dilemma with which sci-
entists and others who are inter-
ested in such enterprises as the
Phoenix Project are confronted. If
the nation continues to stock-pile
atomic weapons and as a result of
this and other causes the atomic
arms race continues, do we not
stultify our efforts to apply atomic
energy to peaceful purposes? I
hope very much that the faculty
of the Phoenix Project which con-
cerns itself with the social sci-
ences will face this basic and ur-
