Night Editor-JOE KRUGER
CONCFR'NW THE KLAN
'e Daily 'publishes in another
mn a communication in support
the, Ku Klux Klan. The gist of
writer's argument is that the
holic church-a closely-knit organ-
ion which mar~es abundant use
ritual. . is gaining a large measure
elporal control, and that the Klan
[so an orgainization which makes
of ritual for the purpose of
ring and holding members. .is or-
ized to rid temporal affairs of the
race of Catholicism. Since it has
ain features in conmmon with thef
holic church, the writer implies,
existence is excusable.
he writer's argument is based on
allacy: namely, that the two or-
izations are in any degree coin-
able. True, they both make- use of
al to a large extent in ;holding
it followers. But there is one
rent characteristic of the Klan,
ch has no place in the Church..
of secrecy. The speaker at the
Klux Klan meeting, recently held
Ann Arbor, laid especial stress
he need for secrecy in the work-
of the Klan. He said that without
ie Klan could not hope to accom-
h its alms. And the Catholic
ch, no matter what other critic-
may be leveled at it, can not be
sed of securing its ends through
use of secrecy.
lie Klan preaches "Americanism,"
claims a basis in the Constitution,
its whole organization is founded
tproposition which is fundament-
unconstitutional. The first tenet
inerican government is obediance
ho law; and the basis for the con-
tion of the 'United States is indiv-'t
, liberty. Yet the Klan attempts to
g about obediance by extra-legal1f
hods; it takes the law into its
hands. In spite of assertions, to
contrary, this has been proved
and again,- in the various Klan
ages ire Texas, L.ouisiana, and
amra. There are instances on re-
in which the Klan has attempted1
nforce the liquor laws by taking[f
;ed violators out and tar-and-
iering them. In many instances

At the rate which Varsity lettersl

A VALLEY OF GHOSTS
The situation in the Rubr Valley.
is coming to a climax faster than has'
been expected. F~or more than a year
now, ,the policy of the Germans ',in
thedsitias ,been one of ase+
resistance. Reports froni Essen not

0,10 workers out of employment. Big J
concerns in Horde, Dortmunde, and
Bochum are also contemplating clos-
ing down.
With 600,000 individuals e lmhaed
to be out of work, and many of the
Ruhr towns feeding thousands f meni,
women and children who are almost
starving as a result of the existing
1 strikes, the new number that is to be
jobless will swell the ranks- of the
unemployed to a new danger point for
the Ruhr. Going thus' from bad to
worse unless certain actions are taken
at once, a panic 'will mark this valley
'which will result in starvation to
thousands.
While France haggles over her pro-
,blem; of who shall be the net Pre-
mier, and while, Great Britain looks
on with a sparkle of hope in her eye,
and while the United States pertin-
ently extends the Dawes' plan, the
SRuhr situation is paid comparatively
little attention. It is given very little
(attention as regards its internal strife..
fIf nations think of it at all, it is .only
considered as a plot, of land which
should returned to the Germns.
Perhaps if the Ruhr were returned
to Germany, or some plausible com-
promise were established between
France and Germany, the situation in
the Ruhr would clear up. Perhaps,
if the Dawes' plan were accepted, a
halt could be brought about to the
existing condition. But 'the Allies ,
continuing self-centeredly, are put-
ting off the acceptance of the plan,
and thereby true peace until the few
radicals in Germany who are against1
it, will, by stump speeches win the
public over to their side.
Wkatever plan is pursued should
be carried out immediately and effect-
ively. The Allies have been allowing
France to bungle with the Ruhr long
enough and 'they have been allowing1
Germany, to carry on political In-
trigues against the French long en-
ough. No matter whether the blame isl
placed at the door of France or Ger-
many, the fact remains that thousands
of people in the Ruhr are suffering
needlessly because two nations aret
now caring on a ,laissez-faire policy1
and refuse to come to some agreement.

I must explain right °here that if
there were one thing about Sylvester
that stood out above all others it
was his tender heart. He was above
A~l kind to animals.,
Now as Sylvester was sauntering
gaily across the campus (I might as
' well adnit he was enrolled in the
U of M) his eye was caught by a
'nearby Engineering bench. "There is
" mo hurryabout. the chocolate,,marlh-;
Wallow alnonund4ae'with" cherry
on it," thought Sylvester to himself4
cP~haps if, I rest, ,a while I shall

Now it so happened that a certain
1 toad who shall be nameless saw at
a glance that Sylvester was the sort
ofi, fellow who was kind to anmal,
s; naturally he hopped toward D~m
teagerly, thinking to sit beside im
-on tie bench. But of course Sylvester
h ! ad no means of guessing the toad's
pleasant intentions-in fact he never
1even so~w his little unknown chum.
I'o §yfveste'r sat ownq ite' heavily
on the toad.
However, it w eas not' long before
Sylvester.,rose, ;thinking something
'might be amiss., "Oh dear, you poor
Ilittle creature," lie wailed, when le'
saw the plight of the poor toad.
"Had I but known, I should never
have sat on the Engineering bench."
So Sylvester wept bitterly over the
fate of his little friend, and -after
looking at him sorrowfully for a while,
decided to give up the idea of the cho-
colate nmarshmnallow sundae with a
cherry on it. Instead he walked
slowly home and listened to his radio
ffor the rest of the evening.

There. is no' bunk~ about this. The

"LILIES. OF THE FIELD"
A Review 'by 'Mr. Jason Cowles
The critical perspective is decidedly
warped by such young ladies as Miss
Corinne Griffith, who, as the adver-
tisement says, "co-stars" in this fillum
with Conway Tearle.
Still, there were things- in the pic-
ture we had seen before: the woman
the heroine's husband' marries after
his divorce, for instance. She was
the familiar cinematic type-a pas-
sionate little hoyden who hated her
darling little step-daughter!, and.
jumped on the photograph of the win-
some Corinno, when she found~ the!
child playing with it. I-
The touch- we thought we were go- I

turned out to be nothing at all. - Cor-
