HOOVER AND COOLIDGE

{:

With the time for the inaugura-
ion of the thirty first president of
he United States now at hand, it
oes not seem unreasonable to de-'
ote some small discussion to the '
ccomplishments, such as they
lave been, of the outgoing Cool-
dge regime and to compare them
ith some care to what may be
xpected of the national adminis-
ration under the direction of his
uccessor and former aide, Herbert
[oover.
To begin with, President Cool-
dge is retiring from a term and a
hialf in the chief executive's chair
having gained for himself a repu-
tation for economy, both in the
matter of public utterances, and in
the matter of public expenditures.
It may be said that Mr. Cool-
idge's faculty for' "minding his
own business" has resulted in. an
administration of few significant
accomplishments, in an adminis-
tration thoroughly satisfactory and
comparatively harmless.
"Economy" and "prosperity", tire-
lessly lauded by political subordi-
nates as the crowning achieve-
ments of Republican administra-
tion, have been in reality of little
more than rhetorical significance.
That expenditures have been limit-
ed and taxes somewhat reduced
must be admitted. It must be
recognized, however, that these
particular developments have not
been due to any exceptional in-
genuity on the part of Mr. Cool-
idge and his cabinet, but have, un-
fortunately, been gained in part at
the expense of needed appropria-
tions and governmental services.
In matters of foreign policy, Mr
Coolidge has found that the diplo-
macy of politics is not the diplo-
macy of international relations
The weak and politically useless
Kellogg-Briand pact, it is true, was
passed through the Senate with-
out reservations, and a cruiser-
building program was inaugurated
in the final months of the admin-
istration's term of office. Peac
conferences and disarmament con-
ventions, however, were not nearl
so successful and resulted chiefl
to the disadvantage of the Unite
States and to the complete satis
faction of the other naval power
The administration d i p 1 oin at
further succeeded in keeping thi
country out of the World court, i
that doubtful accomplishment ca
be considered an achievement.
Internally, the Boulder dam pro
posal finally became a reality. Th
three leading issues of the presen
day, however, tariff revision, farr
relief, and prohibition enforce
ment remain unsettled with a spe
cial session of congress guided b
the new president promised fo
early in April. Failure to attain
satisfactory answer at this earl
date to the first two can be for
given; but failure over a period o
years to launch an adequate cam
paign of liquor law enforcemen
beginning in governmental Wash
ington and including the entir
country cannot be ignored or for
gotten.
Succeeding the silent Calvini
Herbert Hoover, aptly described a
"'the Beaver man." Mr. Hoover h
long had a reputation as an eng.
neer and for success in dealin
with wide governmental problem
He comes to the presidency face
not merely by the great task of o
fice but by the even greater nee
of living up to the confidence
millions of American citizens w
look upon him as the strongest fi
ure elected to the presidency sin

Woodrow Wilson.
The contrast between the ingoin
and the retiring presidents eve
now is great. True citizens every
where are hopeful and expectan
that Hoover, party ties forgotte
will be one of the greatest of pres
dents, and in every way an im
provement over the silent M
Coolidge.

SUNDAY, ,MARCH 3, 1929.
Night Editor-DONALD J. KLINE
THAT WISCONSIN GAME
The game with Wisconsin to-
morrow night has been the subject
of as much discussion and surmise
as any local sporting event so far
this year, especially in the student
body. It can hardly be expected
that the students will sit quietly
by and watch- Michigan sink into
defeat or rise to victory, but it
should be expected that they will
display more sportsmanship in
keeping with Michigan tradition
than was displayed at the Minne-
sota game last week.
Naturally this editor cannot look
forward and predict the outcome of
last night's game which has now
been played. If Michigan's lost, it
precludes that Michigan has lost
the great chance to tie for the
Conference title. If Michigan
wins, a defeat of Wisconsin will as-
sure Michigan of at least a tie for
the Conference championship, and
an outside chance at the undis-
puted title, should Chicago upset
predictions and defeat Wisconsin.
The team visiting here tomorrow
night will be no cinch. It will be a
team that has had a week's rest
and a chance to prepare for this
particular game. Wisconsin now
leads the Conference race with
nine victories and one defeat.
On the other hand, it was Mich-
igan that downed Wisconsin earlier
in the season when all the Confer-
ence teams counted their games
with this University in the win
column. At that time, the Varsity
ran up a higher score than any
team has been able to do and hold
the high-powered Wisconsin scorers
as low as any other team has been
able. That, in itself, shows that
the deed is possible.
An early sell-out of tickets and
the current comment on every
hand have assured- one of the
largest crowds that the Field house
has ever held. The game: will un-
doubtedly offer chances for the
strong Michigan crowd to disagree
with decisions and actions, but it
is to be hoped that no outbursts of
boos and hisses and catcalls will
take place. It has been pointed out
in these columns before that Big

Editorial Comment

THE ANN ARBOR MYSTERY 1
REMAINS
(The Chicago Tribune)
A letter from Mr. E. J. Ottaway,
president of the University of
Michigan Alumni association, was
published recently in the Voice of
the People. Mr. Ottaway comment-
ed on an editorial we had printed
entitled ."The Ann Arbor Mystery."
We wanted to know what was be-
hind the resignation of President
Little. Mr. Ottaway in his letter
quoted President Little to show
that the alumni, at least, were in
no way responsible for his de-
parture.
That is good as far as it goes,
but it does not answer the question
f ruPipq p~mn+ man alelftAnril

God's gift to a timid Demo-'
cracy, The Saturday Evening Post,
carries this week Booth Tarking-
ton is his kindly, almost grand-
parental, charming self, and as-
sures the People that culture is so l
indefinable a term that like a cer-
fain dread dental disease, four outI
of five may have it and not know
it, and' further that no matterl
whether you are the fourth or thel
fifth, you can feel comforted by
steamship statistics that bear wit-
ness to the realization on the part
of the American People as a whole
that there is a culture in Europe
because that in itself implies an
American culture. Awareness of a
European culture is a guarantee of
a culture in yourself.
Mr. Tarkington has too long been'
a faithful mirror to the American
scene not to be at least partly
right. And he has been so long so
little more than a mirror that he
is at least, partly to blame for the
situation that has grown up in
which an.- apologetically self con-
scious America goes panting and
fawning to Europe to lick the
Icrumbs of culture that fall from
even the lowest peasant's table,
With some of his more Anglophile
colleagues he is at least partly re-
sponsible for the prudish point of
view that there is something
shameful, indecent, in the sight of
a new nation, a sort of child, grow-i
ing un in the presence of its au-

American people to death. It was
probably the biggest thrill they'd
had since Walt Whitman beat his
breast and calledi them brother.
Walt told them what a bunch of
"'good eggs" they were; the warI
introduced them to the folks at
the other end of the alley and
across the creek. Then they began
to wonder who was right, because
the people across the creek didn't
call them brother, at least, not for
long.
Which has this to do with cul-
ture, that America has not recov-
ered yet. "Mr. America, meetI
yourself;" and Mr. America has
not got over the shock of discover-
ing that he was not "two other
guys", but himself. Quite a shock,
all things considered; especially if
you date your national growth
from 1860 or thereabouts. During
the war only our aristocracy of fi-
nance dared face the issue of au
American nationality; the voters
are still running away from en-
tangling alliances .with Europe.
The result is that w. own lie
world, but not ourselves.
It is about tine that gei-inemen
like Tarkinigton uit Belling "o}
through The Saturday Eveming
Backslapper and suggest to the
American people that they "get
wise to themselves"; that they Kind
out about English, French and. all
other cultures and civilizaftions and
then damn them all thoroughly;

IN EVERY department, you will see them . -itent
in their task of carefully checking the quality of each gar-
ment as it passes through the various stages of production.

I

THEIRS Is no concern with manufacturing costs. They owe no alle-
giance to any set schedule of quantity production. Rather, theirs
is an unlimited opportunity to give expression to their quality heart.
Theirs is an unrestricted duty and creed - - - A duty that seeks to
find fault with the already superbly fine! . . . A creed that strives
toward the single goal .
