UtinaM --American Failure?

THE STATE DEPARTMENT issued a
"white paper" on China Friday. In it
was the official proclamation of a fact that
we have known since last year-that a dem-
ocratic China in the sense that we mean the
word democratic must be given up for lost
for the near future.
The statement, with its condemnation of
the Chinese Nationalist regime as a "total
failure," looks to many like a bad case of
"hitting a man when he's.down." Certainly
a great.deal of the blame for the failure of
China's government can be laid on Chiang
Kai-Shek's shoulders and on the shoulders
of the slow-moving, oftentimes corrupt Kuo-
mingtang party. Certainly the Nationalists
have lost the support of the people, especially
of the peasants who make up the backbone
of China.
YES, MUCH of the blame can be put on
the government that has failed to give the
people what they want. But has the United
States any right to condemn the Nationalists
without taking some of the blame itself? Is
not the failure of China in some measure the
failure of the United States?
We emerged from Worid War in a
very advantageous position in China. In
our hand was the power to make the Na-
tionalists reform their party, reform their
ideals, reform the system of land distri-
bution.
We had the opportunity and somehow we
muffed it and the chance for a democratic
non-Communist China was lost, perhaps for
good.
WHAT CAN WE DO about it? Mr. Ache-
son doesn't seem to tell us that quite clearly
in his "white paper." But certain things we
can do. First and foremost we must realize
that Chiang's government could never have
been called democratic, not when a tight
oligarchy ruled under a one-party system.
So the battle for eventual democracy for
China was not lost with the downfall of

Nationalists. Nor,;can we expect that Mao
Tse-tung's Communist government will be
"democratic." But again we must not con-
clude that eventual democracy is impos-
sible for China.
What China needed in the past and needs
now and in the near future is a strong hand
to guide her. She now has a strong hand
and although it is not the democratic hand
we had hoped for, we must accept it, estab-
lish contacts with it, and endeavor to make
it as little anti-American and as much anti-

Russia as is possible.
* * *

* *

CHINA IS BADLY IN NEED of money if
she hopes to become a powerful country.
That money is available only from the United
States.
We have failed diplomatically in the
past to keep the Communists out of Chi-
nese government. Our main hope for the
future seems to lie in using the possibility
of a loan to Communst Chna or at least
some form of technical aid to that country
as a bait to develop the present Chinese
leaders into the same kind of leader that
rules Yugoslavia-a ruler that, although
Communistic, insists on Yugoslavia before
Russa.
If we can develop Mao Tse-tung into a
"China first, Communism second" leader, we
will at least have succeeded in some measure
in further "containing" the Russian might.
CHIANG'S DOWNFALL makes certain the
impossibility of a democratic China in the
next generation, but it does not necessarily
mean another satellite for the Soviet dic-
tatorship. If we play our cards right this
time as we failed to do in the past, we may
eventually see a strong United China friendly
to the United States.

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON-The Democrats seem to
have forgotten how they used to berate
the lobby-ridden, Republican 80th Congress
and what they promised they would do to
lobbyists once they came into power.
In contrast, the 81st Congress is now
swarming Vith more lobbyists than ever,
and the much ballyhooed bill to investigate
lobbyists is still stuck in the Judiciary Com-
mittee.
* * * *
HOLDING UP the lobby investigation are
two Senators who publicly claim to be for it.
One is Senator Alexander Wiley, Wisconsin
Republican, who officially voted for the
lobby probe, but unofficially did his best to
block it. "If this goes through," Wiley once
blurted out, "we might have to investigate
my son."
He referred to Marshall A. Wiley, of
Chippewa Falls, Wis., who journeys to
Washington to work for the dairy interests.
Not considering himself a lobbyist, young
Wiley has never bothered to register, but
because of his father, gets extra entree.
But the man really blocking the lobby
probe is Senator Pat McCarran of Nevada,
faithful friend of the lobbyists, who has
resorted to the subtle strategy of insisting
that his judiciary committee do the inves-
tigating. This will give him veto power over
who should be investigated and what should
be done about them.
AND SINCE the House has already passed
a bill providing for a joint Congressional
committee to investigate lobbyists, McCar-
ran's obstinacy may mean no lobby investi-
gation at all. Arizona's Senator Carl Hay-
den of the rules committee is trying to talk
McCarren into going along with the House
version but that would take the investiga-
tion out of McCarran's hands where he
could not protect his lobbyist-friends.
As a result of this stalemate, the lobby-
ists are multiplying like flies.
More than 350 new lobbyists have been
added to the registration rolls since the
Democrats came into power. That isn't
conting all those who still haven't come out
into the open, but pull strings and influence
votes without registering as lobbyists. Of
1,600 who have registered, fewer than 150
have dropped out.

RELIGIOUS BATTLE OVER EDUCATION
The House Labor Committee's closed-door
showdown on the religion-laden federal aid
-to-education bill produced the expected
fireworks-and then some.
Committee members shouted, ranted, fum-
ed, glared nd even threatened each other
as Chairm;11 John Lesinski of Michigan, a
Catholic representing Detroit's Polish sub-
urbs, used every move in the Congressional
book to block the bill.
HOWEVER, there was one beneficial re-
sult. It now is possible to call the roll of
the friends and foes of aid to education-as
a result of a motion by Boston's young Rep-
resentative John Kennedy to postpone all
school legislation until next January. Ken-
nedy's motion was voted down, but here's
how the committee lined up behind closed
doors:
Against killing all school-aid legislation
during this session:
(13)-Representatives Sims of South Car-
olina, Perkins of Kentucky, Bailey of West
Virginia, Irving of Missouri, Jacobs of In-
diana, Steed of Oklahoma, Barden of North
Carolina, Powell of New York, Wyer of Min-
nesota, Wood of Georgia, Howell of New Jer-
sey, all Democrats and Morton of Kentucky
and Kearns of Pennsylvania, Republicans.
For killing all aid to education (12)-
Representatives Lesinski, Kennedy, Kelley,
of Pennsylvania, Lucas of Texas, Demo-
crats; and Burke of Ohio, McConnell of
Pennsylvania, Gwinn of New York, Smith of
Kansas, Nixon of California, Werdel of Cal-

ifornia, Brehm of Ohio and Velde of Illinois.
* * * *
LESINSKI FILIBUSTERS
Lesinski at first tried to filibuster the
meeting by refusing to call it to order.
Though 22 members of the 25-man com-
mittee were present-nine more than quor-
um-the Michigander strangely insisted that
all 25 members be present. He was thus able
to stall 35 minutes before the full member-
ship showed up.

AS EACH SEMESTER or summer session
ends, students find themselves owning
a shelf full of books for which they no
longer have any immediate need.
What to do with these books presents
quite a problem, especially to those of us who
do not like a lot of last minute labor when
it is time to go home.
* * *
IF YOU FEEL like haggling with a local
bookseller, you can always try to re-sell your
books when you have finished with them.
Of course, you can be sure of getting only
a fraction of what you paid for them.
If you are a veteran whose books have
been purchased by the taxpayers, you are
likely to feel a twinge from your conscience
when you pocket the pittance you receive
from such sales.
If you feel more ambitious, you can always
wrap the books up carefully and send them
home. When they get home, they will prob-
ably languish in some forgotten part of the
library for a good many years.
* * *
IF YOU ARE completely lazy, you will
try to find some extra space in your own

World Powers No. 1 And 2

room, and leave the books there, hoping that
you might find a use for them next semes-
ter.
There is, however,o ne good way to get
rid of your old textbooks without ex-
cessive exertion. You can take them to the
University's Textbook Loan Iibrary.
The Textbook Loan Library provides books
of all sorts for those students whose finan-
cial resources are limited. Since the library
has no income, it can't afford to spend much
for books to supply its patrons. It depends
largely upon the contributions of generous
and thoughtful students.
* * *
THERE COULD hardly be a more worth-
while way to unburden yourself of those
books you no longer need than to give them
to this library. By doing so, you will cer-
tqinlyw gain the gratitude of a great number
of students less fortunate than yourself.
-Paul Brentlinger.
GOOD SENSE, travels on the well-worn
paths; genius, never. And that is why
the crowd, not altogether without reason,
is so ready to treat great men as lunatics.

To the Editor:
- W HY ALL THIS yawpin' about
the Union front door? Several
equitable solutions are obvious:
Build another front door; or why
not another Union? Or, Solomon-
wise, we could cut the existing
door in half, and keep our lovely
young Michigan coeds out of half

To the Editor:
They say that Julius Caesar was
a man who was bored when he
had less than two things to do at
one time. I would venture to say
that there are very few people
who are gifted with such a mind
in the world today. I am one of
those persons who must do just
one thing at a time in order to
do it correctly. This is the subject
of my letter.
At night I am one of the stu-
dents who uses the main library
to study. In order to finish my
work by the time the library closes
I must begin promptly at 7 p.m.
However, at 7 p.m. on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays, Percival
Price begins permeating the cam-
pus with his bells. I enjoy.listen-
ing to his music when I have
nothing else to do. However, dur-
ing the short eight week summer
session there is rarely a time
when I have no homework. There-
fore, I find it extremely difficult
to get my homework done and
listen to the bells at the same
time. Unfortunately Polish Folk
Songs and Peterson's Econonics
just don't mix. I have spoken to
other students who use the library
at night and they feel as I do
that there should be quiet on cam-
pus from 7 through 10 p.m.
I propose what I think is an
equitable solution. Mr. Price could
begin his recitals at 6 p.m. instead
of 7 and in that way we would all
get the benefit of his fine talents,
but not at the expense of our aca-
demic subjects. With final exams
coming next week, I think this
request is especially important.

25 YEARS AGO:
The silver anniversary Who's Who in
America came out with some 25,000 names,
one for every 4,800 in the United States. Ann
Arbor had its share with 132 names, 22 over
the previous year.
20 YEARS AGO:
An 18-year-old German stowaway on the
dirigible Graf Zeppelin was sent home via
a cell without any windows. He had stowed
away high up in the tail section of the dir-
igible and made both trips without seeing a
speck of ocean-he has the dubious distinc-
tion of being the most traveled person in
the world who didn't see anything.
10 YEARS AGO:
A second attempt to lift the U.S. submar-
ine Squalus from her grave 240 feet under
the ocean was successful as thousands cheer-
ed the salvage crew who worked 82 days to
free the sub.

5 YEARS AGO:
American troops raised their flag on the
Island of Guam as they mopped up the last
Jap defenders. The conquest cost the Amer-

killed. Troops found 10,971 dead Japs after
the battle.

PENNSYLVANIA'S McConnell, the rank-
ing committee Republican, raised no objec-
tions. In fact, he seemed well satisfied with
Lesinski's filibustering and whispered pri-
vately to colleagues that he favored post-
poning action on the school bill because it
was "too hot to handle."
However, others protested vigorously,
including Indiana's Jacobs, a Catholic,
who believes in the school-aid program.
And when Lesinski tried to resume his
filibuster even after the meeting began,
Jacobs raised a point of order against him.
Lesinski overruled. this, but ran into a
fresh attack from South Carolina's Sims, a
paratroop hero in the last war.
"Your actions are outrageous," charged
Sims. "You've done everyong you can to
prevent consideration of this legislation to
help our schools and our teachers."
