American students may be proud that J. F. Green,
Yale, 1932, in addressing the World Disarmament
Conference in Geneva as representative of the Na-
tional Student Disarmament Council (U.S.A.) made a
deep impression on the delegates. Following are the'
main points of his speech:
"After contemplating the events preceding the
catastrophe of 1914 we remain unconvinced as to the
wisdom of our predecessors. . .. We respect the noble
war dead, but we question the judgment of those
responsible for their death.I
"Organized slaughter, we realize, does not settleE
a dispute; it merely silences an argument....
"The other speakers have much at stake; we have
even more, for we are literally fighting for our lives.
I stand before you as an attorney for the defense,
pleading for a reprieve. It is my generation which
will be called upon to surrender all we consider
worthwhile in life in order to become targets for
machine-gun bullets and victims for the latest poi-
sonous gas. It is the young men and women of my
age who will be commanded to commit suicide. It is
my generation which will be requested to destroy
the best of human culture, perhaps civilization itself,
for causes which future historians will discover to be
erroneous, if not utterly stupid or actually vicious.
We have thir lost interest in being prepared for
"In a sense, I am presenting an ultimatum, rather
than a petition. For behind your deliberations stands
staring down at us the specter of Death. We desire
to live and to live at peace. We desire to construct
a world society providing freedom, equal opportunity,
and a sense of security. We desire to make possible
for every human being full development of person-
ality in terms of thqe highest human and spiritual
values we know."
The universality of these ideas is demonstrated in
a remarkable manner by "Broken Lullaby," a film
based on the play of a French author, directed by a
German, and marvelously portrayed by an American
cast. "Broken Lullaby," the talkie now playing as
the "Majestic" theatre fulfills all the demands to be
made of a work of art in the highest degree. To use
Tolstoy's terminology, "It infects the spectator with
the feeling which the artist experienced." Maurice !
Rostand, the famous French author, is the artist in
this case. Those who are seeking a solution of the
great problem of our day: War-Peace-Religion, are
urged to see this film which combin~es great actin;
with a wonderful theme. Nancy Carroll seems little
suited to her role but L. Barrymore and the rest o"
the cast are hundred per cent satisfactory. The film
runs through Tuesday. F. S. Onderdonk.

'HE Student Council, which has been making
an honest attempt to instill some spark of
lent government into a campus where student
ernment seems impossible, is now confronted
h another dilemma. The problem that they
facing is the method of election of a president
The Councit has repeatedly reftised to recog.
campus political parties on the campus. They
rn, unjustly we believe, that when a man be..
tes a member of the Council that he burns his
:y bridges behind him.
They are further convinced that the president
heir body should come from the Council itself,
e the man that has this position should know
ething of the workings of the campus.
Assuming these two premises, their problem
ames this, shall the Council itself elect its
ident, from the junior members, and thus
blish an oligarchial governing group, or shall'
president be chosen in an all campus electiorn
h the junior members as nominees, and thus
w political parties to chose their men.
The Council has gone on record as supporting
mipromise which is even more dangerous. They
e decided t1'at they shall pick two candidates
n their junior representatives and allow the
pus to chose bletween them.
This plan presents both the faults of the other.
possibilities. It both establishes a political;
archy and also allows campus politicians to
e the final word. At any time that the Council
tains a majority of men from any campus party.
men from the same party will undoubtedly be
Since, regardless of what the Council says or
.ks, politics will enter into any election held
n the Michigan campus, it would be far wiser
the Council to put all four of the junior repre-
-atives on the ballot and let the campus politi-
s, rather than Council politicians, fight the

.19,31 MADE HISTORY IN SHIP ELECTRIFICATION
BECAUSE the combined horsepower of turbine-electric equipment irl-
stalled and now in process of construction passed the one million mark
during the year. BECAUSE the President Hoover, first all-electric ship built in
America for commercial transoceanic service, completed its first round trip to
Asiatic ports. BECAUSE the Talamanca,'the first of the largest e4ectrically
propelled fleet ever laid down, was delivered to its owners. BECAUSE elec-
trification-an American contribution to marine transportation-was adopted
by the leading shipbuilding countries of the world. BECAUSE, on the high
seas and on inland waterways, electrically propelled ships established new
records for speed and continuous operation. 0 General Electric engineers
not only pioneered the application of electric propulsion, but have made
many contributions to its development during the last two decades.- By th
complete electrification of the President Hoover, and the six new ships of the
United Fruit Company's fleet, college-trained General Electric engineers have
made another striking contribution to American shipbuilding and world trade.

When the creation of the Health Service here was
proposed in 1912, it was predicted that the depart-
ment would become little more than an excuse
bureau. If some students had been given their own
way, the prediction would probably have been true
to an unfortunate extent. The question of excuses
has not run away with the department, but it has
always been a minor problem. It is a problem in al?
such departments of colleges where excuses for class
absences continue to be required.
Soon after the establishment of the department in
1913, the present policy with regard to excuses was
adopted. The policy is based upon the desire te
conserve professional service for the most important
medical assistance to the student and incidentally to
assist the class instructor. There is good theoretical
ground for requiring all class absence because of ill-E

The policy is to supply only counterstamped state-
ments of facts of illness or clinic attendance which
are verifiable by office records. These facts are to
be used by the instructors or whom ever they con-
cern, as a basis for excuse or not as they choose.
There is no apparent reason for changing the policy.
although it is subject to possible abuse and frequent-
ly results in unpleasant student reactions.
Thcre is good reason to think that these state-
ments have been forged by students and a statement
cannot be refused a student who reports at the clinic
at a certain time however much professional and
other student time is wasted in trying to account for
an alleged but obscure symptom.
An unpleasant situation often arises when a stu-
dent asks for a statement of prior illness for which
no service was given and of which there are no defi-
nite signs. Instructors sometimes send the student
for such statements. It is obviously impossible for
the department to issue a satisfactory statement of
fact covering most of such situations. Emotional
signs of resentment are apt to occur before the stu-
dent appreciates that his word should be as good
to the instructor as to a physician. Mature and
thinking students in such situations have admitted
that requested statements should not be issued. Time
consuming explanations are sometimes required be-
fore the student appears to understand how worth-
less our statements would become if they were issued
every time a student did not feel like getting up for
an eight o'clock at which an unexpected written was
given. The student may need to be told that his
own opinion of and respect for the service in general
would fall if he knew that statements and signatures
were issued with so little concern as to the real facts. I
It is true that students may need only a day's rest
in bed. which they should be encouraged to take for
an ocasional cold, but this department should be
c lled upon to i:ue only such statements as are
