SUPPORT FOR THE LAWLESS
The recent scandals which have
been coming to light in the investi-
gation of magistrates' courts in
New York City are a fitting com-
mentary on the state of law en-
forcement throughout the country
It is common knowledge that the
upholding of law is in the hands,
to a disconcerting degree, of men
who are open to every sort of a
bribe, whether of money or of pow-
er. It is also well known that law
enforcement-is in the hands of po-
lice and judges who fail at almost
every point to observe the laws
they are placed in office to uphold.
The report of a committee ap-
pointed to look into the lawless en-
forcement of the law has just sub-
mittedaitsreport to the American
B a r association. This statement
scathingly indicts the methods now
in. use for the arrest and detention
of prisoners before trial. It contends
first that the "third degree" in the
sense of rigid and severe examina-
tion of men under arrest by police
officers or prosecuting attorneys or
both is in use almost everywhere in
the United States. Chicago's meth-
od of wholesale arrest on suspicion
is prevalent enough in other parts
of the country, and is without justi-
fication in law. Entry and search of
dWellings without warrant is equal-
ly common, as is holding of prison-
ers without charge and without
permission to see counsel or friends
-usually while some form of the
third degree is practiced. By law,
the prisoner is to be brought before
a court without unnecessary delay;
while he is held,the accused is pre-
sumed. innocent and entitled to'
counsel and to humane and decent
treatment. But this is not the prac-
Toleration in police circles of the
third degree and of holding prison-'
ers incomunicado is attributable to;
the difficulties of enforcing lawI
among a people of extreme hetero-
geneity, with no fixed abode, witht
no system of registration or identi-
fication, in an enormous geographi-
cal area. The spirit of the frontier,
with its lvnch iw and hysteria. still
of all, the average police officer is
convinced that if he does not bring
his prisoner in with a complete con-
fession, the prisoner will s l i p
through the wide open meshes of
the courts. Court procedure is slow
and careless; judges are not incor-
ruptible; court clerks are notorious-
ly susceptible to influence'."
The committee's findings reach
the heart of the matter when it is
pointed out that public opinion is
indifferent to laxity and corruption
in the courts and actually approves
of police violence, provided culprits
are found for the more spectacular
crimes. This lack of a public spirit-
ed body of opinion and unholy
wrath on the part of private citi-
zens silently condones the corrupt
actions now in vogue. In fact, the
committee points out cases in which
the citizenry protests against refor-
mation. "A few months ago," states
the report, "policemen in a certain
city made two egregious blunders in
breaking into houses without war-
rants.... .Then the police commis-
sioners made an order that the offi-
cers obtain search warrants before
breaking into dwellings. Whereupon
a large and potent factor of the
public at once urges the revocation
of the order."
There is little ground for optim-
ism in the current forecast. When
the ordinary citizen refuses illumi-
nation or, more generally, calls for
wholesale disregard for the law on
the part of those detailed to uphold
it, only the more optimistically-
minded can hope for an incorrupti-
ble police and judiciary.
A vague feeling of inappropriate-
ness comes over us when we hear
that well known phrase, "Michigan's
fighting band." Those scrupulously
pressed uniforms, those w h i t e
starched shoulder straps and espe-
cially those stiff, precisely drawn
ranks that strut down the field in
well ordered columns seem to sug-
gest the parade ground of a military
school rather than a battle field. Is
the true fighting spirit1'of Michigan
represented by that spectacle of
haughty militarism? We also call
attention to the two heralds one of
whom marches at each end of the
front rank. Do not these medieval
figures. with their gay yellow M
banners attached to the bottoms of
their trumpets suggest the spirit of
a comic opera or perhaps a Holly-
wood version of the court life in
We admit that the music pro-
duced is excellent, the drills exe-
cuted are perfection, but somehow
the whole tone of the performance
is theatrical, suggests the profes-

thusiastic, spontaneous college by.
Comments on our band usually
are comparisons, favorable or un-
favorable, with other bands of mid-
In fairness to the industrious ef-
fort of the band, which after all
shows a great deal of college loyalty,
it must be said that the drills and
formations of the band stack up
very favorably with other similar
organizations in other colleges. The
initiative and effort expended in
obtaining the new uniforms that
have made their first appearance
this year, must also be commended
for its own sake, if not for the end
achieved. The point we want to
make is that the stiff, parade ground
attitude vith all the theatrical
props that the manager can muster
defeats the real purpose of the band
which is to represent down on the
field the spirit and feeling of the

Michigan students should note
with approval the views of Bill
Roper which were expressed in a
recent Associated Press dispatch
and elucidated in yesterday's Daily.
The strong tendency of men on the
campus to engage in intramural
sports or in athletic competition as
members of the minor sports teams
is a healthy indication that civil-

ble views toward the place of ath-
letics in the college.

It wasn't really my fault about
that column yesterday, fellows. I
was away at the time and someone
sneaked up and planted that one
on me. The worst of it all is that I
am away again now, and the
chances are that the same thing
will happen tomorrow. However, I
ought to be just overflowing with
witicisms after a visit to the Ohio

Last time I went down there
and watched Andy chasing the
fellows around on his bicycle
without having the slightestj
idea whether they were Ohio
or Michigan students (he was
in no condition to tell by the
licenses) and I came back feel-i
ing so funny that even the dis-
covery of the fact that Andy
really didrecognize me was not
sufficient to tone down my high

Such times as these, however,
serve to prove the ingenuity of the
Michigan man. I am reminded of
the gent last year who went down
on the tender of the Special loco-
motive, went in as a manager, and
came home in the pants of one of
the bandsters on the Special again.
Bumming is one of the more
popular ways for the impecun-
ious to get there. I went to
Minnesota that way last year,
arriving in Chicago just in time
to see the crowds leaving the
stands at the end of the Notre
Dame-Army game. Needless to
state, I went no further and
fared no worse, but it was a
nice trip just the same. I got to
ride with a bootlegger in a
Packard and everything.

Speaking of bums, I wish to in-

wants to know what my idea of

come around and I'll show her, but
I'll tell her one thing first, and that
is that it isn't the telephone booth

Does anyone know what the can-

pulled up a lot of old rope, and
then there was a long wait during

In the current issue of the Hound
and Horn, America's best critical
quarterly, there is an article Some
Problems of Musical Criticism by
Herbert S. Schwartz, '29. This
paper, which is the first of a series
of articles to appear in the Hound
and Horn and to be later published
in book form by Alfred A. Knopf,
was begun on the campus in the
rhetoric seminar in criticism form-
erly conducted by Peter M. Jack.
Mr. Schwartz was also connected
with this column for a year and
a half as a music reviewer.j
The present article, which has
already received New York notices
as "one of the most significant
contributions to musical aesthetics
in recent years," is concerned with
the clarification of the nature of
music's "meaning" and with indi-
cation of a program of principles to
guide one's critical approach to
In his "Principles of Literary
Criticism," I. A. Richards, admit-
tedly feeble himself in his treat-
ment of musical problems, gave an
accurate description of the "im-
passe" in, musical criticism. Mr.
Schwartz seems capable of indicat-
ing the way out. The brilliance of
his first article suggests very
strongly that his book will be able
to do for musical criticism what

A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY.
The New York Theatre Guild
brings the second play in its De-
troit season to the Wilson Theatre
Monday night for a week's run. The
play is Turgeniev's "A Month In
The Country." It is a quiet, leisure-
ly drama by a novelist, a pastoral
discursion into the relaxed graces
of living in the country. Sensitive
provincials while the time away,
lolling in chairs and drinking tea
in a manner that was to become
a formula- in Chekhov.
Under this surface relaxation
there is a drama of the complexi-
ties in love, which Turgeniev treats
tragi-comically. The material some-
what pallidly suggests Strange In-
terlude. Natalie Petrovna distri-
butes her affections generously.
She has her husband. And is
granted chaste adulation from her
husband's friend, who reads to her.
She gets tangled slightly with the
young tutor in the household,
whom her ward loves. The two
women dissemble humorously until
some sort of a climax seems im-
minent. Then the two superflous
men wander away, their month in
the country over.
The Theatre Guild's production
of this famous Russian drama,
under the -direction of Rouben
Mammoulian, is said to be one of
the most competent in the history
of that organization. In the first
place, they were lucky enough to
secure the services of Alla Nazi-
mova, whose return .to the stage
created a sensation. Raymond
Sovey, young designer for the
Guild, was sent to Russia to copy
the original sets done by a famous
Russian painter-friend of Turgen-
iev's. Then the production contains
almost the cream of the Guild's
permanent group of actors: Dudley
Digges as a country doctor, Henry
Travers as a bumpkin suitor, Alex-
ander Kirkland as the young tutor,
and Eliot Cabot.

gian soprano, who is to appear as
