By LEONARD GREENBAUM
THE APPOINTMENT of a special vice
squad to combat gambling and narcotic
violations in Washtenaw County comes as a
rather belated admission that this area is,
not the lily white, idyllic country side ad-
vertised in Chambere of Commerce publi-
city blurbs.
Somewhat of a shock, perhaps, to the
proper, proud citizen, were the reports by
three local political and civic figures
which claimed that evidence of county
narcotic cases among both teen agers and
adults were mounting, and that there was
a correlation between dope addiction,
gambling and felonies.
The result of their reports was the ap-
pointment of a squad, if two men can be
called a squad, "to stamp out the evil be-
fore it really gets started."
Simultaneously with the squad's forma-
tion came statements of full cooperation
from Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti police, both
of whom, however, made it a point to re-
lapse into the attitude that narcotics are
1 really not a problem in Our Towns, Michi-
gan.
This familiar attitude has perhaps
done more toward creating 'the general
impression that delinquency doesn't ex-
ist in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti than any
organized attempt to beat down crime.
This impression still remains only a myth
-witness the widely publicized murder of
Nurse Pauline Campbell last fall and the
innocuous petty thefts that occur regularly.
As for the narcotic traffic, nothing can
be definitely proven, but there have been a
perpetual series of rumours that some high
school students involved in juvenile delin-
quency take dope.
It is reportedly available in Ann Arbor
and in Ypsi if you know the right people
and the right places.
A 1951 state-wide report on narcotic's
cases showed that violations had jumped
100 per cent over 1950 and 500 per cent ov-
er 1946. With the rest of the state experi-
encing such a violent increase, it seems
somewhat naive to say that Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti have remained snow-white.
Even Bill Morey admitted smoking one
Marijuana cigarette.
The fault more likely lies with police
failure to take effectiveaction or to report
known cases. Such an incident was dis-
closed in one of the final issues of the now
defunct Washtenaw Post-Tribune.
In April, 1951, an Ann Arbor couple
complainedhtothe policethat they had
been told their son, at the time in the
county jail for drunkeness, had been ob-
taining dope in Ypsilanti. The police
took no action on the report even though
the alleged supplier was named.
Other vices rumoured to have infiltrated
the county include teen-age chloroform par-
ties and prostitution.
Admittedly there is the chance that these
rumours are nothing more than just that,
that much of the vice is imagined by thrill
seekers. But with the stories cropping up
so often there is more than a chance that
there is some basis to them.
If the newly formed vice squad is honest
and diligent in its worl, Ann Arborites may
receive a new picture of their community,
one that might shock them at first, but
through knowing about it, one that they
can effectively change by direct action.
If the vice squad, however, is being set up
as a political promotion stunt, or if it is in-
tended to serve as either the whitewasher
or the scapegoat of community inefficiencies,
then Ann Arborites and their neighbors will
continue to enjoy their own brand of pipe
dreams.
RepubI can

Foreign Policy
BEFORE THE Republicans convened in
Chicago there was a good deal of talk
about a new G.O.P. approach to foreign af-
fairs. The old isolationism was to have been
thrown aside for international cooperation
and bi-partisan foreign policy. Up to this
point of the convention, this supposedly new
Republicanism ihas been noticeably silent.
The most obvious thing that the Taft-Eis-
enhower debate has not concerned itself
with is isolationism versus internationalism.
The isolationists have gone unchallenged.
Herbert Hoover'es speech, for instance,
will no doubt be reprinted in every for-
eign Communist newspaper. At a time
when the Reds are striving, and with some
degree of success, to create a cleavage
between the United States and Western
Europe, the ex-president blasted our allies
for not having amore bellicose attitude
toward Russia, and advocated removal of
American ground troops from Europe.
It is worth noting that the twenty min-
utes of cheers that welcomed Mr. Hoover
came from no particular group; or faction
at the convention. It was unanimous.
The struggle within the Republican party
is one of men for power. It is over delegates,
not policy. Whoever wins will do so because
his supporters will have been able to sell
the idea that he can get the votes in No-
vember.
Regardless of who receives the Republi-
can nomination he will go before the vot-
ers tainted by the fact that he received
it at the hands of a convention that gave

ON THE
Washington Merry-Go-Round
with DREW PEARSON
DREW PEARSON SAYS: VICTORY IN POLITICS GOES TO
THOSE WITH BEST ORGANIZATION-PLUS A CAUSE; FACTORS
BACKING EISENHOWER BROUGHT HIM TO FORE; DEWEY
CRACKED WHIP TO KEEP N.Y. DELEGATES IN LINE.
, * * ,
CHICAGO-For a man who knew almost nothing about politics, Ike
Eisenhower has done pretty well at Chicago.
Lounging in a dark red bathrobe and a pair of shorts, Eisen-
hower sat in his suite at the Hotel Blackstone getting reports
from division commanders in battle. There was not the same
tension, of course, and it's also doubtful that Eisenhower under-
stood all the political jockeying of his campaign commanders
as he would the feints of his division commahders.
But, in politics as in war, victory usually goes to the man with the
best organization-plus a cause. And though Senator Taft has had 12
years of careful party organization, behind him, together with some
of the most devoted leaders in the GOP, here are the factors which
Eisenhower has had backing him:
1. A SKILLED CHIEF OF STAFF-What Gen. Omar Bradley was
for the Normandy landing, Gov. Tom Dewey of New York has been
for Ike's political battle. Though unpopular with many leaders, Dewey
knows the political moves, has built up a smooth machine, and it
really functioned at Chicago.
2. A CAUSE-It wasn't until Taft handed Eisenhower the
"vte steal" slogan in Texas and Louisiana that Ike really began
to gather steam. This gave him a chance to argue that the Re-
publicans should not go in for the corruption that they'd pinned
on the Democrats. The argument carried weight.
3. A HIGH-POWERED PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN-No convention,
since that which nominated Wendell Willkie in 1940 has seen any-
hting to equal Ike's ballyhoo. It was done by some experts from Gen-
eral Mills in Minneapolis and from Young and Rubicam in New York,
There's been a lot of merely spontaneous Ike sentiment, too. Pretty
girls boosting Ike have been everywhere, passing out buttons by the
handful. Taft buttons were passed out parsimoniously, only one at a
time.
4. MONEY-Though Taft seemed to have most of the cash at
first, and the Eisenhower forces were slow in paying their hotel
deposit, someone has really taken the rubber band off the Eisen-
hower bankroll recently. Taft claims that Wall Street opened up
for Ike are probably correct. Winthrop Aldrich, head of the Chase
Bank and a member of the Rockefeller family, is an old and
faithful Dewey supporter.
5. ECONOMIC PRESSURES-In every convention, whether Re-
publican or Democratic, it's the deals and the last-minute pressures
that swing big blocs of delegates. FDR got the nomination in 1932 by
promising two cabinet post to William Gibbs McAdoo for his friends
and the Vice-Presidency to John Nance Garner.
CAPABLE SWING-MEN
At Chicago today, the Michigan delegation was swung into line
chiefly by General Motors and Ford. Four years ago, the head of the-
Michigan delegation, Arthur Summerfield, was strong for Taft. Even
when Michigan Republicans held their convention this year, Summer-
field still held out for Taft. But Summerfield is a General Motors
dealer, in fact, is reputed to be the biggest Chevrolet dealer in the
world. So, when General Motors notified Summerfield in no uncertain
terms that he had better be for Eisenhower, it gave him cause for
thought,
Simultaneously one of Henry Ford's executives sent word to
Summerfield that if he wanted any money for the GOP in Michi-
gan he had better get off the Taft bandwagon. So, at Chicago,
swing-man Summerfield helped swing Michigan delegates to Ike.
Swing-man for Pennsylvania, Gov. John Fine, started out lean-
ing toward either Taft or Eisenhower. But the steel industry of Penn-
sylvania is the most potent in the state, and also happens to be for
Eisenhower. Its executives can be persuasive. Also persuasive were
some talks which Governor Dewey had with local political leaders in
Pennsylvania and which they in turn had with Fine. They told him
that with Ike on the ticket it made the difference between winning or
losing their districts in November, and they wanted to win.
These were some of the moves by which Ike Eisenhower, the
naive and none-too-happy politician, learned that when it comes to
politics there's more than one way to skin a candidate.
CHICAGO MERRY-GO-ROUND
MORE HAS LEAKED OUT on the New York caucus at which Tom
Dewey really cracked the whip. To keep his delegates in line on
the question of changing the old 1912 rules on seating contested
delegates, Dewey urged: "It's all right to have a difference of opinion,
but I'm a regular Republican and a great believes in party regularity.
You can still be a Republican and disagree with me in this fight, but
not a New York Republican."
State Chairman Bill Pfeiffer echoed Dewey: "I also have a
long memory and I won't forget those who desert us on this
issue." . . New York's Sen. Irving Ives was milder. He said: "If

we are going to fight corruption in the Democratic Administra-
tion we have got to keep our own house clean." . .. They won the
day. With the exception of one delegate, New York stuck with
Dewey on the contested delegates issue.
General MacArthur's cardinal mistake in his keynote speech was
making it too long. Remarked onel-

«,

.ti

delegate: "I guess his speech was
all right, but I went to sleep."
Gov. John Lodge of Connecticut
made thenbest speech of the con-
vention-less bombast and more
appeal to reason. Guy Gabrielson
did a good job of presiding . .
Remarked one lady delegate from
Missouri: "All we Republicans do
is quote Abraham Lincoln and all
the Democrats do is run against
Herbert Hoover."

Conservatism
IN TIMES of shallow prosperity,
the conservative function is to
insist on distinguishing value from
price; wisdom from cleverness;
happiness from hedonism; rever-
ence from success-worship. In
times of defeat, conservatism re-
minds us that we must still res-
pect moral and social law, no mat-
ter how desperate our apparent
crisis and no matter how radiant
the ends that would "justify" our
using lawless means.

THE TYPICAL, unrealistic, movie produc-

thorough going over in this considerably

boiled managing editor of the Daily Ex-

His hero-worshiping protege, played by
John Derek, immediately swings into ac-

only level headed person in the wole movie.
The 'big shot' editor lackadaisically at-
tempts to stem the tide of Derek's en-
thusiasm throughout, but with no results,
