THE MICHIGAN DAILY

THURSDAY. JULY 1, 1952

Two Speeches
THE MAC ARTHUR "boom" for the Pre-
sidential nomination was effectively
dispelled the other evening by the General's
keynote address to the Republican Conven-
tion.
Delegates and observers had expected
a fiery empassioned speech with the
gamut of satiric and dramatic devices
which MacArthur usually employs in his
oratory. Instead they got a rather dull
recitation of Administration shortcom-
ings and an insipid, uninspirational chal-
lenge to throw the Democrats out.
It had been predicted that a blistering
speech might open the way to a deadlock
nomination for the General, but'if dele-
gates were interested in him as a Presiden-
tial candidate, they showed no signs of it
Monday evening. Although he was given a
tremendous ovation, there were no demon-
strations and no cries of "We Want Mac" as
had been anticipated.
MacArthur's approach to domestic and
foreign policy was not new to anyone. He
merely synthesized his speech before Con-
gress and subsequent addresses into one
overly long statement of principles.
More impressive as a declaration of the
ultra-conservative approach to contem-
porary affairs was the address delivered
Tuesday evening by venerable old Herbert
Hoover, the last GOP president. "The in-
explicable course of nature" is overtaking
the former President as he himself com-
mented several times, and this conven-
tion is probably the last one he will ad-
dress. Unfortunately the opposition tends
to laugh at him and discount every state-
ment he makes, but his speech should be
assessed as an interesting contribution
to contemporary theory of the extension
of government.
Hoover is on'e of the most intelligent ex-
ponents of modern conservatism. Although
we may disagree with his individual poli-
cies (and there are many fallacies in his
foreign affairs thinking), we should ap-
preciate his fear that the extension of gov-
ernmental functions will lead through the
Welfare State to state-socialism.

DRAMA
At Lydia Mendelssohn .,.
HARVEY by Mary Chase
THIS FRAGILE bit of whimsey which ran
for so many years on Broadway and
which now threatens to become a staple
with amateur theater groups was given an
earnest run-through last night by the speech
department's production group.
Most of the play's action revolves around
the attempt to have Elwood P. Dowd, an
amiable tosspot who has as his constant
companion, the protagonist, a six-foot white
rabbit, committed to an asylum. Since Har-
vey is a Pooka with a benevolent quirk,
Dowd is eventually allowed to remain in his
dreamworld without having to undergo the
harsh realities of pyschiatric shock treat-
ment.
The play's success depends largely on
whether Dowd's gently'fey character can
be communicated to the audience. The
part is ratheimsubtler than it would appear
on the surface. Apparently, the author
had in mind something beyond the level
of a lovable crackpot who not only has
hallucinations of startling originality, but
who is also a bit of a lecher. He has reach-

ed that stage somewhere between nor-
mality and acute alcoholism where every-
body is kind and good and events move
in slow motion.
Dan Mullin for the most part succeeds
in capturing the gay, quietly boyant quali-
ties of the main role and almost makes his
drinking partner come alive. Bette Ellis as
Elwood's distraught sister who seeks to force
the committment issue is easily one of the
best things in the play. Her performance is
perhaps too energetic, however, and she al-
most overshadows Mullin's deft acting. The
rest of the cast are quite adequate with the
acting of John Cottrell as an unctuous
psychiatrist, perhaps, a little above the rest.
Unavoidably, the play sometimes seems to
be one long double-entendre with an un-
due emphasis upon alcoholism and insan-
ity. As these are two of society's greatest
problems, it is perhaps unfortunate that
they still today can engender raucous
laughter.
-D. R. Crippen
Satisfaction
IT IS BETTER to be a human being dis-
satisfied than a pig satisfied; better
to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool sat-
isfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are of a
different opinion, it is because they only
know their own side of the question. The
other party to the comparison knows both
sides.

ON THE
Washington Merry-Go-Round
with DREW PEARSON
CHICAGO-Inside the smoke-filled roorm-the political naive Mr.
Eisenhower can't quite be sure whether his friend. Gov. Tom
Dewey, is an asset or a liability. Probably a little of both. Dewey has
one of the smoothest working political machines in the country and
he personally helped woo and win Pennsylvania delegates for Ike.
His friend, Herbert Brownell, also did a skillful job of directing
strategy.
But Dewey has built up much ill will inside the party and this
boomeranged somewhat against Ike. . . . Enmity against Dewey
boiled inside his own New York delegation at its first caucus when
the Governor tried to whip his delegates into line.
"I'm going to be governor for another two and a half years,"
Dewey warned the men who must depend on him for favors. "If you
think that Taft has a steamroller, wait until you see our steamroller
operate." . . . despite this whipcracking, some New Yorkers bolted
to Taft.
TAFT EFFICIENCY-Seldom has there been such efficient or-
ganization for a political convention as that of Senator Taft's. His
Democratic colleague from Georgia, Sen. Dick Russell, has two ob-
servers at*Chicago, Bill Primm and John Connelly, who are greatly
impressed... .
Taft has five different cross-indexes of every delegate in Chi-
cago. Here they are: Index No. 1 gives the name of every dele-
gate and also the name of every one of the Taft Big 4 who should
contact them. The Taft Big 4 are Ben Tate of Standard Brands,
Tom Coleman of Wisconsin, Dave Ingalls, and Taft himself.
This index also has a red tab on each card showing whether the
delegate has been contacted within the past 24 hours. Shortly after he
arrived in Chicago, Taft himself sat down and began phoning dele-
gates allotted to him to make sure they weren't slipping to Ike. , .
Index No. 2 gives the names of the family doctors of delegates.
This potent piece of political intelligence is reported to have come
from the American Medical Association and permits Taft leaders
to work on delegates through their family doctors...
Index No. 3 is the smallest of all and lists Eisenhower delegates
who are waivering. Only 14 were in this file at the start of the con-
vention ... . Index No. 4 lists uncommitted delegates, while index No.
5 gives the party case-history of every delegate. This is the most im-
portant of all. It tells when a delegate joined the Republican party,
how he has voted, whether he likes the theatre, good food or liquor,
who his friends are, and even contains a map of his district. Thus
functions the efficient Taft machine.
CONVENTION MONEY-There's more money, more entertain-
ment flowing around this convention than any before. Both sides are
taking delegates out to dinner and to the theatre in droves. Almost
anything they want is theirs . . . . Henry Ford II has his yacht an-
chored just off Michigan Boulevard where wavering delegates are en-
tertained.
Ford is for Ike, and has reached as far away from Michigan
as Virginia to woo delegates for his candidate . . .. Ford also
brought in 150 svelte Mercurys and Fords in cream and blue to
put at delegates' disposal ....
Young and Rubicam, New York advertising firm, has been mas-
terminding the Eisenhower publicity campaign . . . . Every train ar-
riving in Chicago with delegates, newsmen or anyone else was met by
Eisenhower enthusiasts. They beat drums, hammered tambourines,
pinned on buttons. "We're glad you're for Ike," exclaimed beautiful
girls, just taking it for granted.
HOTELS AND HOSPITALITY-The Conrad Hilton hotel asked
the two leading candidates for the customary advance deposit on their
rooms three weeks before the convention opened. Taft came through
the next day with $5,000, but Ike's people begged off, said they were
hard up. At the last minute, just before festivities started, Eisenhower
came through with a deposit for $12,000-two and a half weeks late.
Rooms weren't so scarce as expecetd. A lot of people en-
gaged two rooms, figuring they might need extra space. Then at
the last minute they canceled the extra reservation .. . . Chicago
police had plain-clothes men checking convention galleries to
look for hidden microphones so there won't be a repetition of
the Willkie boom when hidden mikes were used to whoop it up -
for Willkie . . .
Though Ike and Stassen are considered kindred political spirits,
friction developed when Herbert Brownell, an Ike leader, failed to keep
an appoinmtent with a Stassen leader. The latter scribbled a note:
"To hell with you and your whole Eisenhower crowd."
WHO'S WHO AT CHICAGO-Everybody and their brother came
to Chicago, including non-Republicans and some who have never
even voted . .. . Two suspicious characters seen in the background are
Matt Connelly, the White House Secretary, and Leslie Biffle, Senate
Secretary and Chief braintruster for Vice-President Barkley . .. .
Other visitors: Oscar Levant, the piano-humorist; Joe Kennedy, the
ex-ambassador to London and most of his family (once a Democrat,
he's now leaning toward the Republicans); Perle Mesta; Jimmy Dur
ante; and Irene Dunne, a Hollywood delegate for Taft.
BACKSTAGE STRATEGY-One of the most effective moves
backing up Eisenhower was the petition by 24 governors at Houston
against the so-called "steal" of Southern delegates. This was strictly
"made in Denver," and the man who masterminded it was Sen. Frank
Carlson of Kansas, a former governor, he called the GOP governors

in Houston, got them to sign the petition ..-
When the Taft people moved into their headquarters at the
Hilton hotel they found Bob Allen's assistant, Paul Scott, occupy-
ing a room right in the middle of their extensive layout. It meant
that Scott could watch everything the Taft delegation did-a
wonderful spot for a newsman. Taft people asked Scott to move;
He politely declined. What newsman wouldn't? ...

BRIGHT VICTORY, with Arthur Kennedy
and Peggy Dow.
FOR CERTAIN evident reasons, the inva-
lid-picture has always been a favorite
with Hollywood. While stimulating the
easy emotion, it also offers an orderly plot
framework (i.e., the hero first spiritually
beaten by his handicap finally learns to
overcome it.) This seldom makes for much
penetrating drama, but on occasions, can
develop into a forthright and moderately
interesting depiction of the problems of the
handicapped.
"Bright Victory" is, with these limita-
tions, within the group where the attempt

den after a while. Some of the frank melo-
drama and cathartic violence of "The Men"
probably would have helped the film consid-
erably.
Arthur Kennedy undoubtedly deserved
his Oscar nomination for this role. He
succeeds in making a character out of a
narrow Southern sergeant who is excep-
tional only because of"his handicap. Ken-
nedy, however, welds the personality of the
middle-class small towner with that of the
struggling blind man into the representa-
tion of something more than a mere type.
He achieves not only the blacks and whites
of the character yielding to and overcom-
ing his blindness, but also the grays that
make him an individual.
In supporting roles, Peggy Dow contributes

Republican National Committee
is so touchy on the subject of se-
crecy that it even refused to let
TV cameras focus on the outside
of the committee-room door. TV
producers wanted tonshow the
locked door, but sensitive GOP-
eers said no .
Sen. Gene Millikin of Colo-
rado and ex-speaker Joe Mar-
tin both called on Eisenhower
early in the convention to try
to heal GOP wounds. Millikin
wanted to consult regarding the
G O P foreign - affairs plank.
Martin assured Ike that the
question of seating Southern dele-
gates would be brought up before
the entire convention on the first
day, not wait until later-as some
Taft people desired ... .
Eisenhower, who never attended
a political convention before in
his life, is learning fast.
