It is a known fact that Fred W.
Green spent approximately $100,-
000 while in his four year tearm at
Lansing, an amount exceeding his
income as chief executive by 400
per cent. Whether Gov. Green was
extravagant or not is a matter of
doubt, although he was never
known to have discarded his per-
sonal resources foolishly in private
life. He spent just that amount of
money which was necessary to keep
the state capitol and its chief ex-
ecutive "respectable"-no more. And
he was expected, on anticipation of
his salary as Governor, to do all
that was required of $100,000 on
$20,000 in four years!
This $5,000 annual "fee" hardly
suffices to pay, for the chief execu-
tive's service and food, much less
his social obligations. It is merely
a drop in the bucket when com-
pared to the top-heavy expendi-
tures he acquires automatically
when he wins the gubernatorial
election. It is the one prohibitive
feature about our state government
--a poor man, a man without an
outside income, cannot become gov-
ernor of the state. It isn't finan-
cially possible!
We believe that an increase to
$10,000 would smooth out much of
this dilemma; it would serve to
remedy the great barrier which has
arisen between the poorer classes
and the office of chief executive.
The increase is hardly one substan-
tial enough to insure the incumbent
that all his expenses will be paid
while in office through the salary
alone, but it WILL give him a great-
er start toward keeping his head
above water while governor of
Michigan. It may, in the most eco-
nomical circumstances, actually ap-
proximate the expenditures which
the chief executive. must forego
during a year if used by a judicious,
careful business man. It will cer-
tainly go a long way toward reme-
dying the present situation; it will
give the poor man, the man with
meager fortune and great intellect,
a chance to serve his state.

Open hostilities have commenced
at last between the student body
and the faculty. Since the exposure
of the spy system last wek, the feel-
ing has been rising higher and
higher among the two factions un-
til at last the battle has broken
into the open. The first move on
the part of the student forces is
seen in the following trenchant

Major General Smedley D. Butler,
for some time the stormy petrel ofI
the marine forces, has now become
involved in a controversy that has
reached international dimensions
and resulted in a formal note of
apology from the American depart-
ment of state to the .Italian gov-
ernment and its iron-fisted leader,
Premier Mussolini.
But a question can be raised
without any difficulty as to the
real guilt of the marine officer.
Perhaps there is just cause for the
demands by Italian ambassador
Giacomo De Martino and then
again there is a possibility that
Major Butler is merely a pawn in a
chess-game which has already as-
sumed proportions far beyond the i
seriousness of the original offense
and in which the United States
government is playing anything but
a winning part.
The alacrity with which the Sec-
retary of State apologized for the
"reflections against the prime min-
ister of Italy in the unauthorized
speech of Major General Smedley
D. Butler," is little less than as-
tounding. A court martial has been
ordered for the officer but the
apology was already on its way to
the Italian minister. There was but
one fair and decent thing that the
United States could do and that'
was to give Butler a chance proper-
ly to defend himself before the
military court, without the added
stigma of causing a state humilia-
tion. Then, there would still have
been plenty of time for the apolo-
gies of the government.
On the side of Italy, it would ap-
pear that Mussolini had reached1
the perennial position which re-1
quires the apologies of some lead-1
ing nation to bring the Fascist gov-
ernment back to a place of respect
among the countries of the world.1
With his back against the wall, he
chose to hang his case on the words
of a United States officer which1
were spoken in comparative priva-I
cy and without apparent malice ort

To the Editor:
In his review of the Spalding
concert, Mr. Gorman refers to the
playing of a work by an "unknown
composer" Padre Martini. It should
be stated that Giovanni Battista
Martini (1706-1784) was a distin-
guished composer and theorist in
Bologna-from 1729 in priest's or-
ders, hence usually called Padre.
He composed chiefly sacred music.
His works appear frequently on
programs and are regarded as
among the best of the old Italian
school. Padre Martini was also a
celebrated scholar and wrote some
very important musical treatises
and essays.

To the Editor:
I should not attempt to make re-
ply to Mr. Albert Donohue's reply
to my previous letter had he not
taken almost deliberate pains to
make the controversy a matter of
personalities. This is unfortunate
because I dislike putting Mr. Dono-
hue at such a disadvantage. In
addition to this irritating aspect of
the situation, there is always the
enraging the embittering element'
that stiff-necked seriousness and
pompous, outraged dignity ,so man-
ifest in the awfully official protest
of Mr. Donohue, are bound to en-
And as for the immediate re-'
sponse Mr. Donohue claims thel
Union gave another's criticism of
the same fault, I can only say that
I am not interested in his graphic
description of his melodramatic
efficiency. In only know that in
the past year I have complained of
the same situation no less than a
half dozen times, and when I was
not told that the situation could
not be fixed, I was offered hopeful
promises of a rosy millenium. Con-
sequently, and this was good rea-
soning even for one who lacks those
dignified if slightly illiterate quali-
ties of shocked protest, I decided{
to turn to other avenues of appeal.

Finals are coming, and I have not

this the last issue this year too.

Dear Dan,

that I shall soon be passing on, be-

swan song. And speaking of them,
I feel that I have solved forever-

Think of the paper that would be

which attempts to link the move-
ments, actually little more than a
sequence of ballades and scherzi.
He plays the Funeral March with
restraint, minimising the some bat
deplorable contrast between - the
mourning strains of the march pro-
per and the lyric white veils of the
second section. He is magnificent
in the Finale: that peculiar move-
ment which Chopin thought of as
a "gossiping commentary on the
march" and Rubinstein always said
was "night winds over graves."
Rachmaninoff makes it a fierce in-
tellectual growl at the universe:
which is far more significant than
either of the others.
BEETHOVEN: First Symphony in C
Major: played by Willem Mengel-
berg and the New York Philhar-
monic Symphony Orchestra for.
Victor Masterworks No. 73.
Toscannini re-awakened interest
-where it was needed-in the First
of the Nine by his performances
last Fall. Mengelberg's version for
Victor with the same orchestra is
thus timely. The Syphony needs
no apology. It is as graceful as
Haydn or Mozart (which is very
graceful indeed) and has in addi-
tion subtly integrated into the gen-
eral graciousness and gracefulness
interesting anticipations of a deep-
er, more violent sensibility.
Mengelberg does an interesting
thing. He scales his performance
pretty largely to those anticipa-
tions: producing a Beethoven that
is more recognizable as related to
the later Beethoven than the one
that comes out of the much more
authentic reading of Toscannini.
It is an interesting divergence. But
Mengelberg so subtly achieves this
raising in intensity and dynamiz-
ing of the attack that it never be-
comes bad taste; indeed the inten-
tion is almost convincing. Because
of the simplicities of the scoring
there are no recording difficulties.
RAVEL: Mother Goose Suite for
OrWestra: played by the Boston
Symphony Orchestra under the di-
rection of Serge Koussevitsky on
Victor Records 7370-7361.
No other contemporary composer
is receiving so handsome a tribute
as Victor is paying Maurice Ravel
in t h e recording performances.
Koussevitsky is doing all of his ma-
jor works. The Boston Orchestra is
probably the supreme virtuoso of
the world. More than any other
can it do justice to Ravel's bewitch-
ingly intricate demands of an or-
