the new Congress. This is the deadlock which
is certain to loom as March 4 approaches. The
out-going republican administration, if unable
to stop Democratic legislation as such with iLs
unstable Senate control, still has control of the
executive and might block bills because the meas-_
ures were advocated by Democrats. On the other
hand, the Democrats appear to be determined
to oppose Republican-Hoover economy bills be-
cause, if too much economy is effected before
March 4, there will be little opportunity for
Roosevelt and the Democrats to carry out their
election pledges, and obtain credit for budget-
balancing.

than through hatred of the rich. Love is more
productive of social trust than s hatred.
Ga ndhism provides for every person a common
daily form of social service to help directly toward
creating a new social and economic order, namely,
hand spinning and its associates. It also provides
an immediate channel for the social good will
of every one, without interfering with other forms
of social service and a common bond between all
groups and tends to heel the deepest of all social
divisions between the rich and poor.
Gandhism is evolved by an Indian mind and
heart, and it is of the country's own self. Its con-
cepts, symbolism and methods are cisely adapt-
ed to the circumstances and habitual modes of
feeling, thinking, and action of the great mass
of the Indian people.

If the Democrats have any genuine intent~on of
putting into immediate effect the proposals in
their platform, they will be forced to call this spe-
cial session. Repeal of the 13th Amendment, a
lowered tariff, unemployment relief, and their
other pressing reforms, may be needed if the eco-
nomic system, from which even the "new deal"
party, cannot cut loose, is to' return to health
without a shaking-up that will seriously impair
its future existence.
A question will also be answered by an extra
.session, a question that has disturbed many voters
whose ballots expressed their emotions rather than
their convictions. They will have a pretty good
indication within a few weeks of whether Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt is merely a political figure, a per-
sonification of the desire for a change, or whether
he is a genuine leader with ideas. It has always
been permissable during campaigns for candidates
to speak in misty, though cleverly tinted, gener-
alities. In a message to a friendly Congress, how-
ever, if he does not present a concrete program,
his supporters will know that they accomplished
only one thing-the defeat of his opponent.
Franklin Roosevelt can have little excuse for
failure with his control of Congress.

ternities Shold

r j

A LPHA CHI RHO's closing, the re-
sult of financial difficulties, marks
departure of the first fraternity from the
npus this year. From all indications, however,
will not be the last. In his report to the
esident, Dean Bursley said: "It has been appa-
it for the last few years that there is not
ough available fraternity material on the cam-
s to support adequately the 60 general frater-
les with chapters here. The sooner a num-
r of the weaker ones give up their charters,
e better it will be for them and the remaining
>ups.",
t'his is, indeed, a well-supported argument. It
s often been said that elimination of some of
weaker houses on campus would strengthen
remaining ones and, consequently, the frater-
y system at Michigan as a whole. H. Seger
fer, accountant for fraternities, warned the
eek letter organizations earlier in the year that
:er present conditions there were too many
ternities onthe Michigan campus. He also in-
iated that a number would. be forced off the
npus before June. The Interfraternity Council,
lizing the gravity of the financial situation,
t fall was discussing measures to prevent ad-
ional fraternities from organizing on campus
en the Senate Committee on Student Affairs
nsed a ruling covering the point.
/ any of the weaker houses could prevent the
ninent disaster by banding together and form-
new, combined organizations. The resultant
ups would have the tradition and prestige, if
r, of more than one house and would, of
rse, be stronger. Such a solution would at
st save the fraternities from the future appa-
.t humiliation of "giving up the ghost" alto-
her.
[he aid of the University, however, is also es-
tial at this point. The fraternities have served
'ery beneficial purpose on the Michigan cam-
as far as the institution is concerned, and
cials, so far, have been willing to co-operate,
in repeal of the deferred pledging system. But
the Dean's office to report that there are too
ny fraternities for the present freshman ma-
al and, in the same report, to advocate the
lding of dormitories, does not seem quite fair.
h exceptions, freshmen may not live in fra-
nity houses tuntil their sophomore years. Per-
>s this ruling is responsible, in part, for the
orted "need for freshman dormitories."
Vith the present financial status of the Univer-
, it will not be possible to construct dormi-
.es for some time. And any such step would
ce additional obstructions in the path of the
;ernity system. The natural obstructions should
allowed to remain perhaps. We need fewer fra-
iities. But once the weak and unnecessary
s have been weeded out, there should be no
ficial barriers to 'the progress and welfare of,
se remaining.

Ins ll's Financial College.
T OSE WHO HAVE found fault
with the collapse of the financial
empire of Samuel Insull may be roughly divided
into two groups. The first has criticized those as-
pects of the present financial system that per-
mitted the disastrous mistakes to be made. The
second group, which has been swelled by news-
paper ballyhoo, levels its reproaches, mostly out-
spoken and vituperative, at the personality of Mr.
Insull.
The second group is furnished food for thought
in a recent statement given to the press by Owen
D. Young, whose integrity in national and inter--
national finances is above question. Mr. Young
maintains that the most that can be said in crit-
icism of Mr. Insull is "that he had too much con-
fidence in his country and in his own companies."
Those who have come to think of the holding
,ompany "emperor" as a sort of stony-hearted,
.idow-and-orphan-robbing monstrosity imbued
Nith a lust for money soaked in blood have un-
.oubtedly been amazed to find that the impec-
;able Mr. Young is of a rather different opinion.
:t of course goes without saying that Mr. Young
is In a position to know whereof he speaks.
Samuel Insull dik mwaie mistakes-mistakes
that other people are paying for. Mr. Young does
not hesitate to concur in this. By last February,
he says, he had come to the conclusion that Mr.
Insull was "financially irresponsible." "Yet," he
continues, "his steps were sound at every point if
you assume, as he did, either that the depression
was temporary or that his operating stocks were
worth much more than market price."
The logical implication which at once forces
itself before the mind is that something must
be wrong with at least certain aspects of the
present economic legislation. In his statement Mr.
Young had nothing to say on this score, yet if his
argument is pursued to its logical conclusion he
obviously must agree. For a system which permits
an honest man to erase not only the earnings
of his customers but his own as well is imperfect.
Whether or hot the system can be improved is
as yet unknown. That may be the reason for Mr.
Young's silence on the point. Innumerable sug-
gestions are constantly made, some of them pat-
ently fadistic, some apparently honest and seem-
inglyreasonable. Whether this country will ever
adopt any of them, and whether, if adopted, they
would work, remains to be seen.

GANDISM-
RELIGION AND POLITICS
To The Editor:
Gandhism is a co-ordination of religion and
politics. Hitherto we had religion for talk and
politics for action diametrically opposite to each
other.
I remember a missionary in India, who, when
I questioned him once about the inconsistency of
Christian countries' preachings and their political
actions, declared religion and politics do not go
together. Of course there cannot be any other
answer for one who is seeking for a livelihood
only, and who submits to having his actio3s con-
trolled by a maliciously motivated government.
Gandhism brings religion and politics together
so that one cannot exist without the other, a
practice of politics being embodied in the religion.
Gandhism is having as its motive the service of
the common man and the producing of more so-
cial and economic justice and equality than has
generally existed in the world, and it calls for
devoted hard work from every one.
Gandhi leads a life of austere simplicity, and
thus,- as well as his work for the common good,
has created trust among the common people.
Gandhism is operating by tending to create
sources and modes of trust and credit outside the
money system. It enables the mass to feel its own

AT THE MAJESTIC
"THIRTEEN WOMEN"
** EXPURGATED YET CONVINCING
PICTURIZATION OF A NOVEL
Tiffany Thayer's novel, "Thirteen Women," was
very well deodorized in the making of the screen
version. The, entire "illicit" interest was cut, and
anything on the borderline was soft-pedalled.
Nevertheless, you will find "Thirteen Women"
an entertaining evening diversion, with its admir-
able cast, thrilling plot, and sustained interest.
Mention should be made of the restraint used
in the casting of the girl chums, who, upon grad-
uation from finishing school, fnd their lives in-
separably and fatally linked. Irene Dunne, J111
Esmond, Kay Johnson, and the others are out of
the flowery debutante class so well popularized
in the past year, and they lend a pleasing touch.
Ricardo Cortez, the dark young man who is
also modelled on anything but prep-school lines,
does well as the detective sergeant Ngho finally is
instrumental in running to earth the diabolical
plotter who so -nearly wrecked the girls' lives. "So
nearly" is putting it rather mildly; rather the
destruction proceeds to the point where you can-
not shrug away your goose flesh and think calm-
ly that the principal is safe from anything and
everything.
There is little love interest in the picturization
of "Thirteen Women,' which is another outstand-
ing variation from Mr. Thayer's book. The
mother-for-son love alone is left,
Thrilling moments: The hours immediately pre-
ceding one of the weird deaths; Irene Dunne's
young son reaching for his birthday present-a
"rubber ball" leaded with explosive; Myrna Loy's
mental powers over the chauffeur; the astrologer
(another character triumph for C.^Henry Gor-
don.)
Added attractions: Vince Barnett slapstick
comedy-so-so; Hearst News; retakes from "The
Desert Song," featuring Alexander ,r y and Ber-
nice Claire-crudely done; Silly Symphony in
color-appealing.
"Fast Life," William Haines pseudo-thriller
which played at the Michigan Sunday through
Wednesday was not reviewed yesterday because of
inadequate space. I saw the sequences, obviously
amusing to the majority of the audience, with
a racng fan who has seen Gar Wood's races and
known Mr. Wood for the past ten years. He pro-
nounced the racing scenes "laughable"-and not
from the studio's point-of-view. Naturally they
were taken in the studio in tubs of water, which,
when added to the weird craft which made "over
120 miles-per-hour," produced one of the familiar
Hollywood melanges which have the kids squeal-
ing with delight and older people groaning with
pain at the serene confidence of the producers
in the American public's well-known willingness
to pay for anything.
