lot of praise for its efforts over the past
ten years, before it bows out of its co-
sponsoring, money-making' existence.
Since 1940 the League has single-
handedly been responsible for making Ann
Arbor art-movie conscious. That students'
have learned to like the films is amply
demonstrated by the 1,300 strong crowd
who showed up to see the paintings of
Michelangelo in "The Titan."
Ten years ago art-movies were shown
about three times a year - now almost once
a Week. And during that time ACL has been

The Student Legislature is the latest group
to join this popular bandwagon. It will take
over the weekly Art Cinema League pre-
sentations in the fall, allowing other groups
to co-sponsor the films and share the pro-
Co-sponsoring is a relatively new thing.
Art Cinema League organized the process
when student groups anxious to add to their
depleted treasuries were looking around for
a quick and easy way to make mone. Un-
der the system, the group sold tickets, got
its name on the posters and did the busy
work, while League members arranged for
the films.
Although ACL only took ten per cent of
the profits it did make money. This was
spent on campus service projects such as
free films like "The Louisiana Story" and
visiting lecturers from the Hollywood film
colony who told the inside story on movie
But Art Cinema League is not dead. Giv-
ing up its money-making business will al-
low it to branch off and present a few films
each year of the kind that normally would
not be shown here.
It's been a good ten years, and here's best
wishes for another fifty.

With the impetus given by ACL, several
other organizations have sprung up all de-

Washington Merry-Go -Round

W ASHINGTON-A hard-bitten soldier, Lt.
Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, gave senators
an earfull recently on the No. 1 question of
the Korean war - ideology.
"In a struggle of this kind," testified
Smith, who was once Ambassador to Rus-
sia, "force and the threat of force do not
change men's minds or win their loyalties.
It will pay us to sit down and analyze why
Communist troops in Korea are fighting
like the devil, while the ones we consider to
represent democracy are not doing so well.
"It's an idle thing to preach democracy to
a man with an empty belly," General Smith
told the senators. 'The thing that interests
him first is' a rice bowl, or something for
himself and his family. And pure generos-
ity is not always appreciated. People don't
like to be poor relations, and that's why
it is more important to get them on their
feet than hand them platters."
The ex-ambassador told how his own
scorn for psychological warfare turned to
awe after he served in Russia. When he
was. ordered at the start of World War II
to add a psychological warfare staff, Smith
explained: "I thought it was a group of
crackpots. I have paid dearly for that, but
I have learned."
"In the Army," he continued, philosoph-
ically, "we've talked a lot about morale, but
we always translated it in terms of good
food for the soldier, good hospitalization,
good quarters, and the like. We never
thought in terms of the psychological, al-
though we know civil wars are the most vio-
lently fought, because those are the only
,wars in which those doing the fighting real-
ly understand why they are fighting."
HJALMAR PROCOPE, former Finnish
minister, met Herbert Hoover, who used
to be President, in New York the other day,
,and the conversation turned to the United
"That organization is really taking ag-
gressive action," said Hoover, "for the simple
reason the Russians are not present to
veto. But when I suggested recently a re-

organization of the UN to exclude Russia,
I was 'denounced."
UN diplomats don't entirely agree with
Herbert Hoover. They fear many nations
near the Russian orbit would leave the UN
if Russia were forcibly ejected.
However, whether right or wrong, the
Russian absence may soon come to an
abrupt end.
Under the monthly rotation system, the
presidency of the Security Council will fall
to Russia on August 1. Observers predict that
when that session convenes, Soviet delegate
Jacob Malik will be in the chair.
In the first place, the Russians are
sticklers for protocol and procedure, and
take very seriously the duties of office.
The man who has been actually counting
the votes in recent meetings of the Se-
curity Council is the Russian Assistant
Secretary-General, Constantin Zinchenko.
The voting was on aggression against Kor-
ea, but Zinchenko performed his functions
just the same.
The Russians now realize their absence
prevented them from using the veto in the
Korean controversy; so, if they could get
back without embarrassment, they would
like to grab that veto again.
HERE ARE THE senators who last week
ignored the Korean crisis and voted to
cut all foreign aid, including Korea, by 10
per cent.
1-The vote for the cut was 11 to 10 be-
hind closed doors of the Senate Appropria-
tions Committee.
Ferguson of Michigan and Wherry of
Nebraska, both Republicans, led the fight
for the cut. Cordon of Oregon, also a Re-
publican; first voted for the cut, then made
a deal with Robertson of Virginia to re-
consider the vote.
However, Ferguson and Wherry talked
him out of it by arguing that the committee.
report was already being printed and that
the question could be settled on the Senate
floor anyhow.
Others who voted to short-change Korea
and ours other allies at this hour of crisis
were: Democratic Senators McKellar of Ten-
nessee, Ellender of Louisiana, Russell of
Georgia, McClelland of Arkansas, Chavez of
New Mexico and Thomas of Oklahoma (by
proxy); also Republican Senators Bridges
of New Hampshire and Young of North Da-

WASHINGTON-The great debate is on
- reminiscent of the "guns or butter"
controversy of ten years ago, in 1940-41
when we were disputing among ourselves
how far we should go in getting ready for
possible involvement in what came to be
called "World War II."
Because of developments in Korea and
continuing bad news that forecasts a long,
trying and expensive ordeal there, and
possible threats elsewhere, the argument
has come around quickly to whether we
should move at once to a full, general mob-
ilization of arms and manpower, instead of
taking the piece by piece route of that
similar era ten yers ago.
A really mammoth program that would
startle you, many billions over-all, is being
suggested in some high and responsible
On the other side, the necessity of any
such comprehensive program is being dis-
* * *
IN THE 1940-41 PERIOD we stumbled
along hesitantly, building up a confused
sort of superstructure of bureaucratic agen-
cies, one set of initials following another in
rapid succession, hotly scrapping among or-
selves as to controls on our lives, business
and personal affairs. Total defense then
was a strange new phenomenon to us.
A general European war was already un-
der way then, too.
In that respect the situation today is dif-
ferent. Yet we face a set of circumstances
which, while new, still adds up in interpre-
tations of officials here to just as critical
an emergency, even though there is no gen-
eral war, only what is legally called "a police
* * *
presented as a shift in Russia's strat-
egy from the "cold war" of infiltration to
the direct armed thrust in which the Soviets
use puppets so that they, themselves, still
are not openly involved. Whether this is
the beginning of a pattern to be followed
elsewhere, at other widely separated and
vulnerable points, no one of course can fore-
cast; but, as a matter of safety, it is held
here that such must be assumed. We can
take no chances.
It was Russia's first open aggression,
though cloaked, like the infiltration process,
in a stooge. It shocked the world. It brought
an immediate challenge from us and the
United Nations. Whether Russia expected
such a reaction is a matter on which there
is a difference of opinion here, and likewise
there is a difference of opinion as to whether
this challenge might check her, or at least
delay her, from moving through another
satellite at another exposed sector. She
has the tactical advantage of being on the
inside of the perimeter.
Here, too, however, we can take no
chances, whatever the diagnosis may be.
Consequently the idea is gaining ground
for a general mobilization of arms and man-'
power. It would entail a large and sub-
stantial military program, with the neces-
sary conversion of industry from peace to
war production and corollary controls of all
sorts, on prices, wages, and the like, as well
as marshalling of manpower through the
draft, reserves and national guard.
This is advanced not only as a matter
of national security but, in the still anxious
pursuit of peace, as a warning to Russia
that we mean business - all aimed at check-
ing her and preventing a third world war.
To this the counter-argument is that if
we mobilized fully she would, too, which,
instead of preventing war, would only
aggravate the tension and bring on the
war the quicker.

The unknown quantity in all calculations
is Russia's motives and plans, No one knows.
That's what makes decisions difficult..
support in the State Department, in-
cluding John Foster Dulles, Republican ad-
visor to Secretary of State Dean Acheson,
and is being discussed with senators. A few
senators already have spoken out publicly
in favor of it. It is realized, however, that
it is likely to meet considerable resistance
in some quarters at the capitol.
Also, the Council of Economic Advis-
ers to the President is reported against
any such full-scale mobilization with the
tremendous outlay recommended in other
official areas, favoring instead a program
of five or six billion dollars. They advance
factors of an economic sort against a
giant program at this time.
President Truman, of course, must make
the ultimate decision. It is, truly, a tough
one, with all that is involved. But it is cer-
tain that we are in for at least a partial
mobilization and the controls necessary to
expedite that, including materials allocation
and checks against inflationary tendencies.

T7HE STIFLING heat from Ann Arbor's
pavements brings a reminder of the in-
accessibility of local lakes to enthusiastic
bathers. With the mountain showing no signs
of motion, it would seem that it is high time
that Mohammed made a move.
The physical education department
could do something to relieve this uncom-
fortable situation faced by some 8,000 stu-
dents. With a little planning, daily trans-
portation could be provided to these not-
too distant lakes.
The physical education department offers
swimming courses for women in the evening
at the Union Pool. But with the heat of the
day pretty well dwindled by that time, a dip
is not so refreshing as if it were available
during the broiling hours of the day.
Instead of a swimming program during
the evening, a more appropriate program
could be arranged during the day. A number
of University busses could transport the stu-
dents who signed up for the daytime swim-
ming period to coincide with the hours speci-
