FRIDAY, NOV. 4, 1932
E D I T O R'S N O T E: The following editorial had
been written and set up in type before the Socialist
demonstration of last night. It's statements weretso
well carried out by the attitude of the. demonstra-
tors that we are printing it in full, with a further
discussion below it.
Campus Socialists
Learn A $500 Lesson
AT TIMES we find it difficult to
understand the purpose of the
Student Socialist Club on the University of
Michigan campus. In spite of the misleading
name, the organization denies any connection
with the Socialist Party. Exactly what ties bind
the group together is almost impossible to de-
termine as one can seldom find' two members
who agree oneanyset program. Perhaps it is
a persecution complex which one finds so often
in' radicals.
The Daily has politely refrained from making
any' comments . on the recent radical bookstand
fracas between the Ann Arbor police and the
Student 'Socialists. Now that the preliminary
storm 'is over, one can look at the situation from
arexternal point of view and arrive at a definite

their hereditary bigotry-for bigotry has usually
been the largest voter in our national elections-
and consider the Socialist stand fairly. It has
advocated the rolling up of a large vote of protest
against the two leading parties.
That should, obviously, make The Daily the
most liberally-inclined independent newspaper in
Michigan, stronghold of Republicanism.
Blind to that fact, some sixty persons belonging
to the Socialist and Communist parties held a
demonstration in The Daily's office last night. It
was a demonstration with no point. It was a
great disturbance over a quibbling technicality
which had n'o discernable bearing on anything.
As the story on page one points out in more de-
tail, nine illegal votes were inserted in the ballot
boxes day -before yesterday by James Inglis, '33,
as a joke, which he related to a great many
friends. He told The Daily's editor what he had
done, with the understanding that the votes would
be thrown out. They were thrown out. -
Because The Daily neglected to print the fact
that the joke had been perpetrated, sixty loud-
talking, little thinking radicals invaded its offices
and made of themselves the most perfect asses
that it is possible for earnest, honest citizens to
They meant well, perhaps.
But they betrayed their cause abominably.
They gesticulated. They talked at length, all at
once. Most of them were content to talk. A few
favored violence. "We won't let them go to press
'till they print a retraction! We want a free
press." Somebody suggested wrecking The Daily's
machinery, all in the cause of a free press. The
otherslaughed. Someone else was afraid the cops
might come with machine guns.
They did more harm to their campaign on cam-
pus- in one evening than they could make up for
in weeks of constructive work.
They made themselves ridiculous, and very
nearly did the same for their cause.
Martydom is sweet. Publicity is sweet. Going
places in a big angry crowd is sweet.
The radical mob last night was Inferiority
Complex on a bender.
The Daily has believed the Socialist platform
to be an intelligent one, and the Socialist party
an enlightened one.
It is disillusioning to find that terrorism, mob
spirit, mass production of a moron voting body,
are -as typical of Socialism as of other political
Last night's demonstration was doltishly
planned, stupidly carried out, and had assinine
If it had been directed at a privately-owned
newspaper, it would have resulted in legal retalia-
tion and would have alienated that paper to So-
cialist thought for all time.
The Daily, of course, does not intend to change
its previously stated political stand, even under
pressure from such back-handed allies.
The Daily still urges you to VOTE FOR NOR-
MAN THOMAS if you believe that a protest
against the established parties is needed.
The Daily believes that it is more liberal than
the radical mob of last night-if liberality means
democracy and defense of Constitutional rights.
The criticism made of the Socialist Club in the
editorial above, we believe, is highly prophetic.
Although the crowd insisted that it had no con-
nection with the club, the membership of the two
groups co-incided remarkably. And both are
marked by a superfluity of theories and a paucity
of results.
The demonstration failed.
The Daily is "not printing the retraction de-
-It will not print it at any time in the future.
Failure, of bourse, is glorious.
Martydom is sweet.
Yes, but a little disgusting to watch.

To Thle Editor:
Things' run 'their course. The orbit of campus
discussion on India is easy to plot. Sunday an
impartial prejudiced, reader cancel one, observer
like Lovell Thomas states an opinion to a- Daily
reporter.' Tuesday one 'who knows India inti-
imately comes out with statements of indisputable
fact. On Wednesday some one may be impelled
to reply. Thursday and Friday remain for a
fluent Hindu to call the roll of Britain's folly
from the first indiscretion of the East India Com-
pany to the machine guns of Amritsar. By Sat-
urday the stage is set for the visit of President

Musical Events
The mention of restraint in connection with
a movie star seems like a contradiction of terms
and yet, among other things, Lawrence Tibbett
I proved that the combination was not only possible,
but practical. Tibbett not only captures his au-
diences but he completely'enthralls them until
it does not matter what he sings or how he sings
it. And that is what he does primarily. His voice
has been acclaimed widely as a "natural," much
as the latest golf player or. baseball pitcher is
heralded, yet underlying and surpassing that
"natuial" voice is that subtle essence, that mys-.
terious synthesis of elements which might have
been termed "'X" but is better known as "it"-
in other words, personality. He is a showman and
whether he sings a song, tells a story or merely
makes a bow, the point always gets over. It is not
surprising that he is so - genuinely popular with
the American people; in this country of "stars,"
whether they be swimmers, writers or preachers,
it is only natural that we add singers to our
heavenly collection. Consequently, it is not the
music which is the essential feature but rather
the performer-so, in like manner, such a recital
as Wednesday night should properly be called
not a concert but a "Tibbett."
He was surprisingly restrained in the attitude
which he took towards his songs. There was none
of the florid lyricism of the usual operatic star
nor the conventional mannerisms of the concert
singer. He, in turn, was this or he was that, always
sincerely and sympathetically conceived-and
always with the utmost good taste. One had the
feeling that he sang the song as a unit-behind
it lay a clear understanding of the essential qual-
ity-the story to be "put over." And that is what
he is-a "story teller." Not that he cannot sing.
The first half of his program, in particular, was
ample proof against that mistaken idea. But it
was in the Brahms "Verrath" where both the'
musical aid dramatic elements were combined
in one finely expressive whole that he reached
the heights of his creations in the medium of the
song proper. His first numbers were pure music-
his last, well, shall we say, musical verse?-but
in this one song there was a subtle blending of
both qualities into a medium of organic unity.
And that should be Tibbett. Many people can
sing-others can act-but in very few is a com-
bination of both the musical and the dramatic
found to sch a striking degree.
There was an almost careful simplicity char-
acterizing all of his first group. He was restricted
not only in manner but in voice, which seemed
to lack the resonance which one had expected.
The air from "Comus" was refined into a minia
ture of the clear cut vitality which is so char-
acteristic of its composer. But the precision of
his whole style of delivery was a satisfaction--
in the' eternal warfare which wages between in-
strumentalists and singers Tibbett is a shining
example of an instance in which the latter may
also be a musician. And in the Donaudy "Vaghis-
sima semblanza" such quibbling details were com-
pletely overwhelmed in the sheer beauty of the
actual song. It hovered perfectly between the
dramatic moment and absolute music; neither the
verse nor the tonal line was predominating, but
it combined the two in an exquisitely emotional
The "Jardin d'Amour," characteristically
.French in its transient clarity, was done with a
thrilling delicacy, and a subtle feeling for the
lyrical mood of the song. Loewe's "Maidens Are
Like the Wind" was charming. The fluid, ever mov-
ing melodicaline gave it the suggestive quality
that should be the aim of all good programme
music. "If Love Hath Entered Thy Heart" is the
distinctly popular type of thing that is decorated
with conventional vocal acrobatics and sugared
with a sentimental melody-and it was popular.
In the "Sapphic Ode" of Brahms, his first encore,
which was well suited to his voice, he seemed for
the first time to be able to free it from the cov-
ered throatiness which was veiling his tone.
Stewart Wille, Mr. Tibbett's accompanist, was
surprisingly adequate as a soloist-for an accom-
panist. He reached all of his notes and in some
cases played them well, but his touch has the

same sterile clarity as that of an old time clavier
and he played with a business like precision that
made itrather a relief on all sides when thej
time filling interlude was over.-Kathleen Murphy

the first place, the organization requested
ssioi i from the chief of police to sell radical
tute on State street. The request was
ed and the Socialists launched into one of
"major projects of the year."
dicals are seldom good business men. The
lists bought $500 worth- of literature on
b and opened a stand. Before they had sold
of it, the police ordered them 'to take the
off the street. The members of the club
left holding the bag.
e Socialists' assumed, of course, that they
>een 'closed because they were selling radical
ture and made many threats about suing
poIice and appealing to the Civil Liberties
:n They were very much disappointed;" then,
they discovered that they had not been
cuted because they were radicals, but had
ordered to close up because they had broken
' ordinance by erecting the newsstand.
ef O'Brien had given them permission to
;he literature but he had not given them
isuion to' sell it from a bookstand.
ten this fact was eventually made clear to
numerous members of the Socialist Club,
ooud rumblings of protest gradually dwim-
into faint rauimurs. The point was brought'
iat there was a newsstand in front of the
le. This, however, is inside the property
of the arcade, not on the sidewalk and,
e, not under the jurisdiction of -the city.
hough the Socialists have not given up
dream of suing the city for the $500 spent*
terature, it seems - very doubtful that the
will ever come to court. Perhaps the mem-
of the' organization have learned a lesson.


Screen Reflections



Take some arithmetic. India contains 350 mil-
lion people, one-fifth of the human race. West-
erners in India number about 280 thousand, 160
thousand European-born and the remainder of
mixed blood niainly Anglo-Indian. The non-In-
dian portion of the British army in India amounts
to 60,000 men. Admit' what is always close to
the truth that half, of these are concentrated
and kept busy on the northwest frontier. That
leaves on -the plains 30,000 of the hated British
SAND of the population. If India were in the
ferment which visiting, and perhaps local, agi-
tators would have us believe, then a bare-handed
India could quietly and completely smother and
erase that army and hold its ports against all
comers. Conclusion: British are in India because
a laige majority of the Indians want them there.
The person who hastens to answer this letter
should note that it is not a defense of any British
policy or lack of policy nor is it an attack on
any one who desires a free India.

getting a bit monotonous, but "Night After Night"
is different in that it opens just'as the racketeer'
begins to reform and become a gentleman. Joe
Anton, owner of a speakeasy at "No. 55," is tiring
of the smell of booze and swaggering women.
His eye is on a "Park Avenue" girl who visits
his joint each night-alone. He discovers that she
was born in the place that is now his speakeasy.
An old flame grows jealous and pulls a shooting
act while he is with Miss Healy one evening. For
