Expressing the hope that world pub-
lic opinion might be brought to bear
on the American situation with a re-

urged the publication of all available
information on conditions in the
Apparently some people of other
countries are vitally interested in
what the United States intends to do
about child labor. And it seems no
more than right that the laborers of
European nations, many of whom are
contemplating coming to America,
should know the existing conditions
here. In this light, any publication
of the facts should be encouraged as
a step toward avoiding misconcep-
tions of the status of labor in the
It does appear to be overstepping
the boundary a little, however, when
an international labor organization
takes it upon itself to interefre with
what the United States government
or any of her state governments are
doing about child labor. That, it
seems, is the province of the powers
concerned and not one of the privi-
leges of a foreign organization.
Premier Mussolini has added his
voice to the war chorus. Like the
pugnacious tribunes of old he address-
ed the Roman senators Thursday on
the inevitability of international con-
flict in the following vein:
"Whatever may be the cause, this
much is certain-the war through
which we lived and in which I had the
honor to fight as a simple private was
not the last........You must not dream
that the eventual war in Europe of
tomorrow will keep us exempt from
sacrifices. We must prepare now be-

suddenness that it gives no time for

to realize that the surest way to mae

NEITHER A MARTYR, NOR A
There are those who consider Dr.
Alexander Meiklejohn a fool. .There
are many others who judge him a sec-
ond Mohammed about to lead his com-
patriots from the error of their ways.
Hie has been variously maligned as a
vicious influence on the younger gen-
eration and as a stupid person who
entertains impossible ideals. And he
has been praised as a martyr to the
cause p of freedom and enlightment.
Such is, the result of publicity.
For those with whom he comes in
intimate contact-that is, in the rela-
tion of a speaker to his audience-an1
entirely different conception arises.
To his auditors is revealed a person-
ality, magnetic in its idealistic en-
thusiasm for the consummation of
true democracy and sensitive to the
finer things of life. He is not a rad-
ical. He is an idealist who admits the
impractibility of most of his theories.
Past publicity has failed to disclose
that the campus is being turned into
a pasture for sheep.
To the Editor:
Mr. Johnson may be right or he may'
be wrong but he seems to be having
the best of the argument. For using
his own experience as an illustration,
he has the worthiest precedents; but
attempt at argument by epithet and
irrevalent personalities, on the part of
some of his critics, can only be re-
garded among thinking people as a
I tacit admission of defeat.
WILL THE LEGISLATURE j
TAKE A CHANCE?
-The Detroit News
"Factory inspectors shall have the
power to condemn all school houses
if in their opinion they are unsafe,"
reads the law of the State of Mich-
igan. But the College of Architecture
at the University of Michigan is not a
school house within the meaning of
this act, in all probability. It is un-
safe; it is a fire trap; but it is doubt-
ful if the buildig that houses it comes
under the law.
Another act provides for the inspec-
tion of schools by city building inspec-
tors. But the University of MichiganI
is not governed by the city of Ann
Arbor. Under the law it is run by the!
Board of Regents, which depends upon
the Legislature for funds, since it is
not a taxing body.
If the old engineering shops build-
ing, which houses the College of Arch-
itecture is unsafe-and it is-respon-
sibility rests upon the Board of Re-
gents and the Legislature. The Re-I
gents have recognized their share.(
chief among the personalities is John
Phyllis Turnbull never fails to lose
herself in the part; and John Hass-
berger cannot for moment cease to
be an unusual personality.
A fault in this age of tenderness
wherein we persist, that touches even
those of superior insight, is an insis-
tent subordination of logic to loving
kindness. There is no' particular ex-
cuse, for instance, in "Outward Bound"
for the salvation of Anne, and for her
return to the world of unkindness and
Comedy club consistently presents
the most finished amateur productions
on the campus. "Outward Bound;"
though a more difficult play to produce
than the average, under the direction
of Paul Stephenson and Daniel Quirk,
is equal at least to those of the past.
Honorable mention is due to Lillian
Bronson whose haughtiness was ap-
parently quite unaffected; to Barre
Hill, who acted a crisis well; and to
Valentine Davies, whose playing merg-
ed at times into the actor group.
When Sutton Vane is dust with Aes-
chylus and Shakespeare, perhaps his
"Outward Bound" will no longer be
known. The arbitrary division which
separates good plays from bad may
relegate his work to limbo. In its
curious use of the phenomenon of
death as a plaything, it is ultra modern
and ultra original. It is new almost
to the point of feverishness.
Nevertheless the play is in keeping
with the spirit of the age. In its
idealization of petty vice and ultimate
vir'tue, it is the work of a thoughtful I
radical and decidedly au fait. Shakes-!
