THE " SitT' 3MAG" Ilk:LIES'<
(Note: The folio wing conniuznica-
tion concerns Don Coney, literary edi-
itor of The Daily, who wrote a review
of G. 1). Eaton's "Blackfurrow" forj
The Daily of Sunday, February 22. It'
is written by Saul ('arson, who con-1
tributed an article about Eaton to the
same issue.)'
To the Editor:
It is not that Ikon ('oney hay written
a profound rev-iew, nor thiat ibe has,
written a review at all that I (lip my
hand into the tar b~arr-el and c-ry for
a sack of feathers. Neither is it be-
cause Coney has shown -an obvious
jealous disposition. Not even for the
reason that either Eaton or his first
novel need any extensiv~e apologia, do
I yell for Coney's blood.
"Who is Coney, what is he ?" I
again paraphrase the reviewer of the
G. D. E.'s "Backfurrow"' in your issue
of February 22.
The review gives the answer as
fully as anyone short of imbecility
wants to know it.
Coney became literary editor of the
extinct Sunday Magazine after Eaton
was kicked off the publications for
making himself obnoxious to the local
powers. A well deserved fate, which
proved that the enthroned, like army
officers, are "gentlemen by courtesy
of Congress."
Coming at a. time when some sort of{
a standard of criticism had already
been set by Eaton, Coney's first con-
cern was with the question of attract-
ing some rays from the glow which
was about Eaton. lie chaferl undier
the knowledge that hie was considered
a compromise aiticle between the
erudite Eaton and the. mediocrity that
was the rest.I
Coney's prime move was to ask the
staff of the Sunday Magazine to re-
member that hie was "not merely fill-
ing Eaton's shoes," but tbat he had a
pair of gunboats of his 'own to wade
around in.
The staff, as far as I remember,
gave Mr. Coney the opportunity that
he asked for. But in vain. There was4
Eaton, enI coulisses, attracting all the
notice, while Donald continued to pre-
sent the inlsip~id tragi-comedy of a
lumbering oaf p~osing as a critic and I

To me the late President Burton,
with all due respect to his memory as
abig man, and many limited radicalsj
who were forever yapping at his heels,
weire and are up against the samej
problem. Burton by his activities
sought to bring edlucation to every-
one's loor, to p~opularize it. But, my

The Latest in


Those who are used to the moist
atmosphere of a state political gather-
ing no doubt, found inspiration and
comfort in the rantings of two Demo-
cratic p~oliticians at the pre-conven-
tion banquet of opponents of Repub-
licanismn, Thursday night. At any
rate there was considerable applause.j
To the uninitiated, however, the re-
mar-ks of Senator Royal S. Copeland
and Alva M. Cummins were little
short of disgusting. There was no dis-
play of intelligent or constructive
reasoning which would impress any-
one with more than a grade school
It appears certain that Senator
Copeland-Mr. Cumnmins can be dis-
regarded as a man of smaller cali- {
bre-- absorbed little of the atmosphereI
of learning during his short residence1
in Atnn Arbor, and what he did was
quickly submerged by the foul air of
New York's dubious political melee.
His ready recourse to vulgarity, his
careless and unfounded statements
concerning reputable men, his wild
dleclai rations about the impossibility
of refor-ming the Senate and the im-
practicability of the League of Nations
stampedl hime ouickly as the worst type
of demnagogue which today saps the
life of p~arty government in this coun-
The gi-eat regret must be that such

fewx positions of political importance

the nation. If he is typical of the
"big"~men in that party, the Republi-
cans seem doomed to many years of
success and prosperity.

livered to the Senate by Vice Presi-I
