Prof. A. E.Zimmern States Equality
Of Trade Conditions Is Real basis
For International Amity Of Future



"As soon as we discard 'Free
Trade' as a slogan and adopt 'Equal-
ity of Trade Conditions,' we will have
a better basis not only for clear
thinking but for interhational rela-
tions," said Prof. Alfred E. Zimmern,
formerly of Oxford university,' one of
the foremost political scientists in the
English-speaking world, in his lecture
yesterday in Natural Science auditor-
In this second lecture entilted, "The
Political Framework of Economic Pol-
ilcy," Professor Zimmern outlined the
history of the idea of reciprocity and
of. customs unions, showing how they
had failed where they had not receiv-
ed popular support.
Must Amalgamate
In considering equality " of trade
conditions and international co-opera-
tion, he pointed out that "the world
will continue to be divided as long as
there remain independent political
and economic entities." He further
stated that "through taxing power the
types of social classes may be decid-

n Can-


ed-taxing power and political power
are integral."
There are four stages of a nation's
development from the standpoint of
political economy, according to Pro-
fessor Zimmern: Self sufficiency, a
relatively short priod, a time of free
trade in which luxuries are bought
from outside, the protectionist regime,
when manufacturing is developing
within a given country, and finally an
era when free export trade dominates
and there is a contest between the
protectionists and free traders.
Professor .Zimmern then turned. to
his suggestions in the direction
of equality of trade, emphasizing
the elimination of discrimination in
trade between nations. To promote
understanding of terms and avoid fric-
tion in indiscriminate treatment, an
international committee shou'd be ap-
pointed to interpret the terms. Then
the "open-door" policy should be pur-
sued, or if the door must be closed,
it should be closed equally, so that in
either ease there will be an equality
of access.
In the third place, he suggested that
there should be no differential export
duties, in which each nation disposes
of its products to various countries.
on different terms. To prevent any
nation cornering products, no export
duties on monopolies should be al-
lowed. Further, there should be al-
lowed no military barrier, so that ec-
onomic bargaining may. be free from
political influence.
Sees Hope for Future
Looking into the future, Professor
Zimmern sees increasing co-operation
to show those in power the interna-
tional bearing of their policies and to
enable them to defend such plans.
There should be developed "machin-
ery for the co-operation of the sub-
ministers with technical jobs." In
conclusion Professor Zimmern left
this thought with his audience: "Feb-
lowship is life, enforced fellowship is

Declares New Plan for Local Govern-
ment Is Logleal eMans of
Originated nine years ago, and now
governing 275 cities and villages in
the United States, the city manager
plan shows promise of being the fu-
ture form of local government in this
country, believes Prof. Robert Crane.
of the political science department,
who is said to be the greatest author-
ity on the city manager plan in the
United States.
"The people are demanding a
change from the old, inefficient meth-'
ods of governing cities, and are turn-
ing to the city manager plan," he
said in discussing the cause of its
rapid spread.
Old Theories Obsole'te.
"All the old theories regarding the
necessary balance of power between
the different functions of government
must give way," he continued, "in the
face of their failure to attain even a
semblage of their proper efficiency in
management. They are doing this in
all parts of the country, and hiring a
single, expert executive to do the
work of managing the city or village.
Great progress has been made in the
western and some of the southern
states,' but in the north it has been'
very slow. Michigan, however, is a
'eader, having more than 10 per cent
of the total number in the country.,
"The' plan has gone through the
greatest crisis in the past year that
it has seen yet, and it came out with
flying colors. In Jackson, Pontiac.
Kalamazoo and other cities it was
threatened by considerable agitation
for a while. The cause lay in the at-
tributing of the generally increased
^ost of city administration to the new
form of government, by the reaction-
aries, and in the agitations of the
politicians who wanted back their

Students who are being introduced
to 'the difficulties of motion picture
writing were addressed specially in
a communication received yesterday
by The Daily from Austin C. Lescar-
boura, one of the well known technical
writers in the present day cinema in-
dustry. The purport of the letter is
to emphasize the importance of the
story in production. Its main points
are as follows:
"The story is the soul of the photo-
play. It is the very foundation upon
which is erected the elaborate series
of scenes which makes up the finished
film. The photoplay is judged good or
poor by the story it tells, for, after
all, it is the story which interests the
"The direction, acting and photo-
graphy are important, to be sure; but
they are more or less a matter of
routine, depending for their success
upon the foundation which is given
them to build upon.
"Beginners especially should realize
that everything must start with an
idea. After the idea comes the plan,
more or less complete but generally
perfected as the work progresses. So'
with motion pictures, there must first
be an idea, or plot for a film story
followed by a more or less complete
set of plans for the actual production.
"In their writing they must remem-
ber to tell the story in action only, to
have as few titles as possible, for the
audience wants to see pictures and not

Miss Winifred Dickinson, who gave
yesterday's Twilight organ recital in
Hill auditorium, plays with style as
well as a certain distinction of inter-
pretation. She very evidently knows
what ,she is about. Her Bach lis first-
rate and the "Prelude in E flat major"
is an exceedingly taxing one, particu-
larly on an organ with a sluggish ac-
tion; unfortunately the Frieze Memor-
mal organ is very trying in that re-
spect. The intricate texture of Bach's
polyphony **as never blurred, not-
withstanding the difficulty of playing
the inner parts crisply.
Bonnet's "Angelus Du Soir" was
beautifully interpreted. This sombre
little devotional is a veritable gem-
:s fine as anything the talented French
irtuoso has written. Miss Dickinson's
handling of the lovely decrescendo at
the close of the "Angelus" was ex-
tremely artistic. The Widor "Pastor-
ale," a charming rustic idyll, was play-
ed with grace and understanding.
f"Caprice (The Brook)," by Dethier,
supposedly represents the progress of
a brook along its course until it be-
comes a mighty stream. As in most
"program music," the image and anal-
ogy seems dubious in this composition,
but it is a rather brilliant thing at an
rate, perhaps more pianistic than it
might be for successful interpretation
on the organ.
- Schminke's "Marche Russe" is not as
Russian in atmosphere as the title
would indicate, but has a certain bar-
baric flavor in its choppy rhythm and
rushing movement. It is interesting
to note that all the numbers on the
program were compositions of famous
organists, even including Bach him-
self, who was no mean roganist in his

This will be the last chance to get

all of last year's books had been dis-
tributed there were still 200 students
left on the waiting list.

Not Desirable for Nation
Professor Crane does not believe
that the manager plan can be extend-
"'d to the national or state govern-,
merits because conditions in them are
very different. He dos not consid-
tr the use of- the plan in counties an
indication of its further growth, but
says that he loes not know definitely1
'o what extent it may spread, for it is
still young.
"In larger governments there' is a1
clear balance of power between the
executive and legislative. The duty of
the government is evenly divided. The'
manager plan, however, is based on
a government consisting mostly of ex-!
,cutive work. and for that reason I
fail to conceive of it as carried any
farther than local gcternment, al-'
though I believe it to be the ultimate
method there.
"The plan as a whole is improving
in practice so rapidly that I can feel
'rnly optimism regarding its develop-
,rnent and spread. Its adoption in
'leveland recently, and the authori-'
7ation of a salary which "may run up
"o $50.000 shows its strength. And
the hopeful thing- about it. all is, too.
that labor is backing it, realizing that
only with it can all factions get an
^quitable share in the government..
That is one of the most hopeful signs
that has yet appeared."
