By DAVE THOMAS
HOSE WHO retain some shreds of op-
timism regarding the possibility of the
Catholic Church learning anything from
its bitter post-war experiences in Commun-
ist-ruled Europe and the Balkans have
doubtless found two recent Catholic actions
rather edifying.
In what appears on the surface to be a
socially-enlightened move, the Pope has
been represented by official Vatican sources
as strongly favoring a system of socialized
medicine which would improve the physical
health of nations.
In Spain, however, the Church, intensi-
fying its campaign for greater "morality"
in public life has pressured the civil gov-
ernments of the various provinces to tight-
en restrictions on bathing suits and beach
conduct.
Henceforth men must wear bathing suits
that cover their chests, and trunks which
reach nearly to their knees. Women must
have their backs covered and wear skirts
on their suits. One particularly zealous gov-
ernor decreed that it is illegal to wear even
the approved bathing suits on the beach or
on boats or "in general anywhere except in
the water." Under the order, sunbathing is
forbidden except in special enclosures prop-
erly screened off to separate the sexes.
A Bishop was moved to comment in a
pastoral letter:
"Do they stop to think that those who
seek the coolness of the beach and the
agreeable freshness of the sea while ne-
glecting moral laws are exposing them-
selves to eternal fire? Have they no fear?
The fear of God is indeed the fount of
wisdom."
Now it must be allowed that if some Span-

iards wish to have the hierarchy decide for
them what they can wear on the beach, that
is their own business. But this trivial bath-
ing suit incident is merely another instance
of the arrogance which the Catholic Church
displays in every country where they can
get away with it toward citizens who are not
Catholics and perhaps do not believe that
sunbathing is likely to expose them to
eternal fire.
* * * *
FURTHERMORE, in the socialized medi-
cine letter, the papal spokesman was
careful to emphasize that the Church wasn't
approving any of the "materialistic and
atheist" theories which modern medicine
holds about therapeutic abortion and birth
control. The Pope was quoted warning
against the "attempt . . . being made to
violate the right of a human person.."
by Mathusian theorists.
To all who are familiar with Catholic
inroads on civil liberties in this country
as well as abroad, a comparison of the
bathing edicts and this statement makes
it clear that where violations of human
rights are concerned, the definition of
"violation" depends on who is doing the
violating as far as the Catholic Church
is concerned.
Acetic, anti-humanistic pronouncements
as that of the bishop quoted above would
stand up better if the Church's growing
material wealth and the inclination to pro-
tect the sources of this wealth were not so
apparent.
It is this inclination, coupled with the
tyranny of the hierarchy which has been
a contributing factor to the rise of Com-
munism in Europe, and if the Church hopes
to seriously challenge Marxism, it had better
mend its ways.

DORIS FLEESON:
Grass Roots Reports
Indicate Senate Turnover

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON-Secretary of State Ache-
son has instructed American Embassies
throughout the world to play down the
chances of peace in Korea. Acheson has
sent a confidential cable to U.S. diplomats
abroad that there is absolutely no sign the
Communists are sincere in their desire for
permanent peace.
On the contrary, he says, all available
evidence indicates the Communists hope
to trap U.N. armies with their guard down
and launch a sneak attack.
Acheson's pessimism finds support in an-
other quarter-a combined analysis by the
top far east strategists for the Army, Navy,
and Air Force. They have submitted a re-
port to the joint chiefs of staff warning that
the Chinese seek only a temporary armistice
which will give them time to build up for
another strike.
This report does not make it clear, how-
ever, whether the Chinese will strike in
Korea or at French Indo-China.
Apropos of this, the French Ambassador,
Henri Bonnet, has been calling at the
State Department to warn of a pending
attack on Indo-China. The French now
want to include that area in the final
Korean settlement, in order to bring real
peace to the orient.
Indo-China, the French indicate, is far
wealthier than Korea; is the gateway to
Burma, Singapore, and India; and, if fight-
ing in Indo-China could be stopped, an en-
tire army would be released to supportI
Eisenhower in Europe.
GEORGE WASHINGTON
HERE IS WHAT George Washington wrote
about inflation and price control on
March 31, 1779, in a letter to James Warren:
"Is the paltry consideration of a little
dirty pelf to individuals to be placed in
competition with the essential rights and
liberties of the present generation, and of
millions yet unborn?
"Shall a few designing men for their own
aggrandizement, and to gratify their own
avarice, overset the goodly fabric we have
been rearing at the expense of so much
time, blood and treasure, and shall we at
last become the victims of our own abomin-
able lust for gain?
"Our cause is noble, it is "the cause of
mankind; and the danger to it is to be
found within ourselves."
NEWS LEAK
SALTY CONGRESSMAN Carl Vinson of
Milledgeville, Ga., Chairman of the House
Armed Services Committee, sizzled the other
day over a news leak to Drew Pearson.
The story he didn't like was about a
subcommittee report inferentially criticiz-
ing him for wanting a Marine Corps ware-
house built inland at Albany, Ga., in his
district, when the Marines who would use
the warehouse were located several hun-
dred miles away on the seacoast at Camp
Lejeune, N.C., and Cherry Point, N.C.
Congressman Herbert Bonner of North
Carolina is chairman of a sub-committee
investigating these matters, so the gentle-
man from Georgia fixed him with a gimlet
eye.
"I understand," he said. "that you have
been giving information to Drew Pearson.
Don't you like the way we do things in my
committee?"
The scrappy North Carolinian, who inci-
dentally did not happen to be the source of
the story, bridled.
"Carl," he fired back, "I gave no infor-
mation concerning you to Drew Pearson or
any other columnist. I don't know what
you're talking about, but I resent your in-
ference that I did something untrustworthy.
When I have something to say about a fel-
low, I say it to his face, not behind his back."

WASHINGTON - Reports of primary
troubles being exchanged by Senators
indicate the possibility of a substantial 1952
Senate turnover although no great altera-
tion in the party ratio is expected.
Veterans and freshmen, Republicans and
Democrats alike, are among those receiving
the bad news from the grass roots. Demo-
crats among the one-third of the Senate
(32) up next year seem a little the more
secure personally; nearly all the class can
claim the normal allegiance of their states
for their own party.
The latter fact, of course, is why-bar-
ring the unforeseen-the Senate is likely
to remain narrowly held by one party.
Republicans in trouble included:
Sen. Hugh Butler of Nebraska, wealthy
conservative grain dealer and ardent Taft
supporter, who hears that Gov. Val Peterson
wants his job bad. Sen. Butler plaintively
complains that he raised the governor by
hand, too. The primary victor there will
almost surely win against the Democratic
nominee.
Sen. Harry Cain of Washington, whose
opposition within his party has not yet
found an opponent for him. They have
approached the mayor of Seattle, who has
some reputation as a vote-getter. But Cain
is a powerful talker; he cannot be discounted
in a campaign.

WASHINGTON Democrats expect to nom-
inate Rep. Henry Jackson, an attractive
Congressman but not so formidable that he
will not have difficulty in the face of real
strength.
Sen. William Langer of North Dakota,
who hears that Rep. Fred Aandahl-who
just got here but was three times elected
governor - wants to move up. Another
G.O.P. state.
Sen. Arthur Watkins of Utah, who
doesn't know whether Marriner Eccles
will really try for it. When the Federal
Reserve parted from their long-time chair-
man last week, their farewell gift was a
round-trip railroad ticket-Washington to
Salt Lake and return. His emotion con-
firmed their belief that he is a permanent
victim of Potomac fever.
Democrats have hopes of recapturing Utah
and Rep. Reva Beck Bosone, the handsome
and articulate redhead, will be happy to
make the try.
On the Democratic side, the storms are
in the South. Sen. Kenneth McKellar of
Tennessee, dean of the Senate, finds Rep.
Albert Gore already campaigning against
him. Sen. Tom Connally of Texas only
hears that Gov. Allan Shivers and Martin
Dies are eyeing his scalp. Former Sen. Claude
Pepper's friends are trying to dissuade him
from running against Sen. Spessard Holland
in Florida but they report he is stubborn.

THE YOUNG IRELAND THEATER COM-
PANY, presented in a bill of plays at
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater.
AFTER A BEVY of mechanical mishaps,
curtain speeches and program confusion,
the Young Ireland Theater Company rolled
into Ann Arbor yesterday for both matinee
and evening performances. Although one
day late, both shows substantially indicated
that they were well worth waiting for.
Welded together by a unique understand-
ing of the art of the stage and undismayed
by the occasional inadequacy of sets, they
made the international exchange of theatre
groups look like a very good thing, at least
for audiences on this side of the Atlantic.
Since Synge's classic one-acter, "Riders to
the Sea" was the only play in their bill left
unperformed after the first day, it is also
safe to say they are very versatile and uni-
formly adept at all they attempt.
The feature of the first day's programs,
and happily the play that is to be the
most repeated, was Sean O'Casey's "Sha-
dow of a Gunman." Studded with two
fine performances by Michael Laurence
as a tenement poet and Milo O'Shea as a
weathered peddler, it captures the fervent
patriotic spirit of the Twenties in Dublin
from the bitterly cynical vantage of O'-
Casey. It is the ultimate indictment of the
barroom defender of independence, and
the ivory tower artist.
Because it is an angry play, its lovely
humor is often incongruous. Director Eric
Bentley, however, never allows the broad

idea was better developed by the
later in "Purgatory."

THE matinee program which will be re-
peated Saturday afternoon featured
three plays, each with small casts. They
were "The Shadow of the Glen" by Synge,
Yeats's "Purgatory" and Lady Gregory's
"The Rising of The Moon."
They were all extremely well acted but
"Purgatory," the powerful core of the bill,
seemed to achieve its considerable effects
most tellingly. Undoubtedly this was due
to Christopher Casson's inspired delivery of
Yeat's impassioned poetry. His role is that
of an old beggar, unable to face the circum-
stances of his birth,
In reliving the scene of his conception,
his vision is dramatically shared by his
young son whereupon the father is forced
to repeat the murder of his father upon
his son. This is the purgatory of the
earthbound mortal who must constantly
relive some moment of his past life.
The flanking plays were notable for their
charm and Irish wit, Synge's in particular
conveying a high feeling for the Gaelic comic
spirit. The rustic flavor of the dialogue
seemed entirely understood by Nora O'Ma-
hony as the peasant wife, and her assorted
men, Michael Laurence, Michael Dunne, and
Milo O'Shea. O'Shea as the aged husband
who arises from his "deathbed" was excep-
tional.
"The Rising of The Moon" also con-
tained moments of sharply effective dia-

MUSIC

U. "I
DESPITE a time error in an announce-
ment in yesterday's paper, caused by
two unidentified gremlins on night desk, a
sizeable crowd of many hundreds turned
out last night for a concert by the Summer
Session Concert Band and were rewarded
with a polished, good-humored performance.
Prof. William D. Revelli demonstrated
once again why his bands are continually
ranked among the best in the nation as he
put his large group through a variety of
melodic and rhythmic paces.
Displaying a well-balanced tone and im-
pressive versatility, the band ran through a
program which ranged from football game
marches and an obstreperous Latin Samba
to the finale of the Strauss tone poem "Death
and Transfiguration."
The sustained artistry of the musicians
was best displayed in the Strauss ekerpt
and in the concluding number, Shostako-
vitch's brassy finale to the Fifth Sym-
phony. I thought the performance of
"Death and Transfiguration" a little stiff
toward the end but Strauss' linked periods
were otherwise handled with admirable
control. The brass sections were fine in

ning, the 26th.

Mr. O'Malley HAS a

And even if Mrs. Tyler
