Perhaps a perusal of some of the
events in Washington during the
past few weeks may shed a little
light on the subject. Two stalwart
beacons of the G. O. P. indulged in
a battle of verbal fisticuffs which is
threatening to turn this entire ses-
sion of Congress into a name-call-
ing contest. Mr. Lucas, who by his
actions has shown that Senator
Fess is merely titular head of the
party, attempted to have Senator
Norris read out of the Republican
ranks, and in doing so precipitated
more grief for President Hoover,
who has trouble enough on his
hands. The reasons for this startl-
ing declaration were Norris' refus-
als on several occasions to vote with
the r,-:lars of ,the party.
According to ispatches from
W a s h i n g t o n, Lucas enjoyed the
sanction and unofficial consent of
Hoover when he made this state-
ment. It would seem in this case
that the President, adroit in engi-
neering but not in the handling of
headstrong politicians, is attempt-
ing to find some method for keep-
ing the liberals, irregulars or prog-
ressives, as they choose to call
themselves, in line now that his
majority in the senate has been cut
down to one vote. If so, he has
chosen very unwisely. Senator Nor-
ris in the recent election, whenntwo
other George Norris' were entered
in the race, proved that he could
be elected if he ran on a prohibi-
tion or Democratic ticket. Yet while
the country awaited relief measure,
from the worthy representatives of
the people, the senators spent their
time indulging in personalities; and
i Senator Norris likes nothing better
than to waste hours of valuable
time in the senate chamber an-
swering attacks upon himself, and
denouncing the attacker. If, as he
said in a recent newsreel speech, he
would devote more time acting ac-
cording to his conscience for the
good of the people instead of de-
bating a matter which he himself
admits is unworthy of his consider-
ation, the senate might regain some
of the prestige and dignity which
the signers of the Constitution in-
tended it should have. In the mean
time, we shall hear about what
each senator thinks about the lead-
ers of his party instead of what he
thinks about farm relief, cutting
down taxes, or increasing adminis-
trative efficiency.

Racketeering and gang c r i m e
seem to be the disappointing bad
boys of our American civilization.
Count me with the writer of your
editorial (published just before va-
eation) in commending sincere, de-
ermined and intelligent schemes
to get rid of them. But let me insist
,hat they be intelligent, and not
uch half-cocked shots as that of
cur new secretary of labor, Mr.
"His v-gorous campaign to rid
Sur cities of gangsters and racke-
eers through deportation" is based
upon the fallacious assumption that
11 such persons are foreign-born,
and it implies that they brought
Their racketeering over here with

ted enough to need no comment.

ion is no remedy at all. From any
out a narrow point of view, it is

Crime is a contagious social ail-
:nent. We wouldn't deport a case of'

Lappened to be foreign born and

the effect that the smell in the

doubt this myself, particularly
as it seems highly problematical
to me that they would start
sweeping the old place after all
these years without some sort
of ceremony accompanied by
wheelbarrows, muck-rakes and
gas masks.

PrZof. Slusser was one of the out-
I standing contributors to the recent
exhibition in Alumni Memorial Hall
Gf the Ann Arbor Art Association;
his two prize--winners having been
first exhibited there. His water-
color "White Still Life" received
the Detroit Museum of Art Found-
ers Society prize of $200 for the
best work in the exhibition regard-
less of subject or medium. For his
etching "Mansard House" Prof.
Slusser was awarded the Frank J.
Blair and Hal Smith $100 prize for
the best etching in the exhibition.
The house itself is on Huron Street
in Ann Arbor. Though his success
in the medium would seem to belie
it, etching is something of a side-
line with Prof. Slusser.
