Students, propaganda is the Jabberwock we must

intelligently. We must learn to keep from allowing
words to blind the facts. And the place to train our-
selves is here! The time to train ourselves is now!

ARAMOUNT among the election issues which
1 will face, the United States during the next
eight months is the Depression. Since the influ-
ences of slack business, unemployment, large
debts, bank failures and unpaid taxes were first
felt two years ago, politics have been tied up more
than a little. In fact, elections which have occurred
since has proved this point.
The Democratic party, out of power since 1920,
first showed it was coming back at the time the
Depression became an institution and culminated
its efforts by winning a majority in the House of,
Representatives in 1930 and has increased its po-
tentialities by winning subsequent state and local
Democrats have naturally, as is the case with
all parties out of power when a national catastro-
phe occurs, criticized the Republican party for its
actions in handling distress and at first even ac-
cused their rivals of causing it. It is, at present,
merely limiting its attacks on the policies and atti-
tudes which Hoover and his administration have
shown in making national legislation on this sub-
In the past six months, the present administra-
tion, however, has entrenched its power a little
more by making federal boards which subsidize
stricken- institutions and concerns and it is this
factor which may cause a renewed hope in Hoover.
It is to be expected, however, that the Demo-
cratic party will continue its attacks and in the
main will be successful. Primary elections in sev-
eral states already show that the Jeffersonian party
has become materially strengthened and since
these primaries and preferential votes are meant
to pick candidates and mainly to give an indication
of party strength a victory for Democracy is not
a little imminent.
Just what results the Depression will have on
the success of the' campaigns of both parties, ne
one can really tell but it is certain that DemocratE
will continue to attack the Republicans on their
actions concerning it while the Republicans will
await the results of their socialistic policy in hav-
ing the federal government take over many of the
unprecedented responsibilities in an attempt tc
Economic conditions are frequently issues of
election campaigns and the party out of power has
usually made these issues a stepping stone to suc-
cess at the polls. It is entirely logical, then, tc
expect a Democratic victory on this score alone.
However, there are too many other forces such as
internal dissatisfaction, unharmonious organiza-
-tion, splits on other issues and a poor choice of a
candidate to venture a definite statement. It is
clearly seen, on the question of issues, that if the
Democratic party does not make any wrong moves
it has a powerful weapon in the Depression and
with it may be able'to again sweep into office after
fourteen years of being on the outside looking in.
We learn from an announcement of the Ann
Arbor Chamber Music society that the fourth andI
final concert on its year's program will be the London
String Quartet which will appear next Thursday
night in Lydia Mendelssohn theatre.
The local chamber music society has taken upon
itself quite a bit of responsibility, for this type ofI
musical presentation cannot possibly be a financialj
success unless the organizations obtained are cheapt
enough to enable the club to get by (which they haec
not been). Chamber music has never been the mosl
popular form of musical presentation, and, in fact.!
is the least attractive from a box-office viewpoint
It is, however, the most perfect form, and naturalIN
enough, like all perfect things, is little appreciated.
Countless chamber music societies have failee
because of the fact that the uncolored and unindivid--
ual character of the string quartet have not brought
in well-filled audiences to pay for expenses. The loca;
organization is to be commended, however, in bring-
ing good, if few, chamber music concerts for the
notoriously insatiable thirst for music which Ann
Arbor seems to have. The recitals have never been
what one would call financial successes but people
who.really go to hear music for it's sake alone atten&
and as yet they have prevented any rumors of liquid.

which means that it has managed to blend four ex--
ceptionally good musicians into a colorless and per-

ton, first violin; Thomas Petre, second violin; Willian:!
Primrose, viola and C. Warwick-Evans, violoncello.
The quartet is well-known to music-lovers all over
the country, having appeared almost everywhere o-

Mayer claims that such is not
true in the case of the present ex-
ecutive. He argues that Curtis
could point out that Hoover had
lived in England, was a British sub-
ject, a voter and a landowner be-
fore he returned to the United
States in 1920-eight years before
the Hoover boom. A Supreme Court
verdict might place Charles Curtis
as President of the United States.
Just a thought! And it might not
be necessary to think on it with the
presidential primaries under way.
The ballot offers the citizens an op-
portunity to change a number of
conditions. The auestion is wheth-
er they will realize it.
A logical viewpoint was aired on
the Senate floor a few days ago
with regard to the $125,000,000

Senator Hiram Bingham (R.,
Conn.) argued that the apropria-
tion would be unjust because it
would unfairly apportion the mon-
ey among the states. Binghamcit-
ed the "allotment to Pennsylvania
would represent $5.26 per unem-
ployed person, while in Utah it
would be $110.97." This proved to
c a typical instance and served as
one of the many examples.
