A LOSING TEAM
Michigan's varsity football' team,
for the first time within the mem-
ory of students now on the campus,
has lost two games in a row. It
has lost these games clearly and
honorably, being obviously out-
played in both. It has lost these
games to two schools which have
never before in history beaten a
Michigan football team; but it has
lost them only after bitterly con-
testing every inch of ground with
men who have been much more
powerful and faster than its own.
There is nothing shameful about
losing to either Ohio Wesleyan or
Indiana when those schools have
better teams than our own. It is
a shock, of course, to a Universityk
which has enjoyed the athletic rep-
utation of Michigan to receive two
such set-backs but it will require
a shock to awaken the University
from its lethargy of football secur-
ity which is without a doubt large-
ly responsible for the present losing
team.
If Michigan can gain the idea
that it is just as noble to lose
honorably as to win recklessly she
will have made a step forward in
intercollegiate athletics which may
not appeal to the patriotic alumni
but which will mean an infinite
amount to the campus as a whole.
To be perfectly frank, it is about;
time we had a losing team and
certainly high time that we begin,
to look at other things than huge1
scores on the ledger of athletic
achievement.;
If a losing team can solidify and
revivify Michigan loyalty to a point}
where it is something worth talk-3
ing about, then let us sing chants"
of appreciation for a losing team.,
If it does not accomplish these
things, and if Michigan students1
are so calloused that no spark short
of an explosion can crack theirl
smug indifference to the activitiest
of their University, then they dot
not deserve a winning team. All
the world loves a winner, but itt
will be a challenge to the calibre oft

document 1928 has produced-to
wit, Claude G. Bowers' keynote
speech at the Democratic conven-
tion. "The Wilson administration
is a green spot bounded on one side
by the Muhall mess and on the
other by an oil tanker flying a
pirate's flag.
"We have seen the nation's oil
reserves, set aside by the prescience
of Roosevelt, bartered away by a
member of the cabinet for a bribe
in a little black bag ....
"We submit that it is a shocking
thing that we have waited seven
years for one word, one syllable,
one whisper of the mildest criticism
of these criminals and crimes
from a single representative of the
administration. They heard La-
Follette's denunciation of Teapot
Dome, and were silent....
"And thus campaign debts of the
regime in power have been paid
by Harry Sinclair, and now with
pious platitudes the Republican
party enters another campaign
free from debt-because there was
a Teapot Dome."
In this fashion the Democratic
party seeks to hush up the scandal
"because Democrats of the Wilson
regime were under the far-reach-
ing dome as well," only to have it
pried open again by that trouble-
some Al Smith, who wouldlike to
know in addition how Republican
party responsibility fits in with the
"sounds of revelry by night in the
little green house on K street,"
sale of Senate seeats in Pennsyl-
vania, Attorney-General Daugher-
ty, grafting on the hospital re-
sources of World War veterans,
giving and receiving of stolen funds
for Republican campaign purposes
to the men who sat by, sliently
consenting.
We are edified by another of
R. L.'s statements. "A Catholic
President would have an Italian
boss," which reminds us of a blood
and thunder Southern Methodist
who told his congregation recently
that Al Smith is Mussolini's candi-
date for President of the United
States. Perhaps those bosom
friends, Mussolini and Pius XI., are
planning to use the United States
in their impending war on Austria.
It looks as though R. L. were one
of these fanatics who see red when
foreigners are mentioned-who
would turn this political campaign
into a struggle between citizens
whose antecedents came over on
the Mayflower, and those who took
the Leviathan. He perpetrates such
drivel as the statement that Presi-
dent Smith's first allegiance would
not be to the United States, for-
getting that the fathers of this
country fought to make it a land
of religious freedom, and forever
separated Church and State in
Article VI of the Constitution and
Article I of .the amendments.
We also challege R. L.'s state-
ment that Al Smith is not trained
in American institutions, and that
he is not known as an American
to the people of the world. Where
but in America can you find an in-
stitution like the Fulton Fish mar-
ket from which a boy without the
advantages of higher education
can graduate to the governorship
of his state, and in what race but
the American does his every word
and action place him? Is he a
suave and mincing Frenchman, a
swarthy, emotional Italian, a
stolid, deliberate German, a Chi-
nese laundryman, can he speak
of his "poipuses" and be claimed
by the English?

But worst of all, R. L. wants for
his most thoroughly American
American, a man of "American re-
ligion," which frankly puzzles us as
to what he means. By a stretch of
the imagination we can conjure up
just five American religions; Chris-
tian Science, Seventh Day Adven-
tism, Holy Rollers, the cult which
worships the Seears and Roebuck
catalogue, and the Ku Klux Klan,

THE SENSIBLE MAN-
HIS WORK AND HIS WIFE
"My husband," said Julia, "has
always been a .very sensible man."
In that sentence lies the essence
of the tragedy which has been so
poignantly painted in "The Bish-
op's Wife."* It is a tragedy once
again of the minister and his fam-
ily-the man who saves the souls
and homes of others without the
first thought for the beam in his
own eye. The two characters are
clearly drawn-with that inimit-
able touch of the real and the
moving which Nathan has so care-
fully mastered.
Into a life which had been other-
wise patient and depressing came
the "Angel." Otherwise known as
Dr. Michael. It is Michael who
makes possible the building of the
1 cathedral on which the Bishop has
1concentrated his attention. And it
is Michael also who gives the
Bishop's wife a new lease on life-
who satisfies in her some of the
cravings for companionship which
had long been stirring under the
surface.
The book is written in the stir-
ring and excellent style of the
Nathan of "The Woodcutters
House." It is moving and literary,
and it justifies the expectations of a
great body of Nathan followers who
have sprung up in this country in
the last few years.

AND NOW THE STORY IS OUT
Everyone knows the stories of the
censorship of the war-of the press
and censorship bureaus which pas-
sed on all of the stories which got
into the newspapers of the world.
And there are many stories rife
about the publicity centers which
are set up in war time for the
drafting of what would appear to
be authentic stories of the progress
of the war. In these centers heroes
were invented, great drives were
modeled with a glamor and a
charm totally absent in the real
military maneuvers. But most of
these stories remain in the fig-
ments of rumor and unofficial re-
port.
"Without Censor"* is the sum-
mary story written after years of
investigation and verification by
the New York "Sun." The details
come from Johnson's war note-
book, from his memory, from in-
terviews recently with great war'
strategists and officers, and from
official files of the war department.'
It makes fascinating reading
when one reads with the popular
fictions in mind. For here is the

In an interesting combination of
a modern thriller and a psycholo-
gical study, John Briggs, Jr., has
achieved.something distinctive in
his latest book, "Seven Days Whip-,
ping."* His thesis is substantially
that modern man will quickly re-
vert to primitive emotions and
actions under any extreme danger
to himself or those dear to him.
Judge La Place, a highly intellec-
tual modern, suddenly finds him-'
self confronted with a situation
which arouses completely his ani-
mal instincts to kill. The situation
is rather melodramatic, but sus-
tained by a convincing study of the
fluctuations of the judge's mind be-
tween hatred, dread, and fear.
The mystery element is too good
to be spoiled by the telling, but if
one does not enjoy psychology, this
book is yet to be recommended for
the story.
One can hardly say that this'
book is anything of much impor-
tance as a contribution to litera-
ture; but it is well written, inter-
esting, and a fairly thorough study
of one character. As such, it is to
be recommended. It falls short in
that its scope is narrow both in
the social field it handles, and in
its paucity of characters.
