THE MICHIGAN DAILY
of our trade is tariff-taxed, but it must be born
in mind that there is some volume of trade which,
owing to the present tariff schedule, is prohibited
completely, and on which hence no tariff is col-
lcctcd. Although it may be impossible to know
exactly, certainly careful estimates should be
taken of the amount of this trade, which pre-
7 sumably would flov United States-ward if the
tariff barriers were removed.
Closely connected with this is the question of
what the United States would gain and what it
would lose by so removing the tariff barrier. If

our imports increased materially, what volume
of trade would our producers lose? Although here
again no exact information could be obtained, it
would still seem that a great deal of factual in-
formation could be collected by any individual
or body sincerely interested in discovering the
best course for the nation to pursue,
To this we may add its brother question, how
would such a change affect the great body of
our people, the consumers and the laborers? It
is a little difficult to see how they could profit
from an unprotected competition with materially
lower paid foreign populations; it is hard to see
how benefits to them like the proposed six hour
day could' be effected if they were forced to sell
their services in a market glutted with labor that
was accustomed to a twelve hour day; and we
hasten respectfully to state that this is one of
the questions on which we hope men like Mr.
Rainey will shed some light.
There is also the perhaps subtler question con-
cerning the amount to which tariff or its absence
effects the total value of trade. It will be seen
that different prices may be paid for like annual
totals of goods. It will also be seen that the
presence or absence of a tariff may very materi-
ally affect this price. And it is thus obvious that
much insidius propaganda may easily be spread,
by either side, by comparing annual trade totals
under the different systems.
These are some ofwthe questions, then, which we
believe must be answered, Much theory has been'
expounded in favor of high, low, and intermedi-
ate tariffs. We contend that the tine has come
to approach the question in a more factual way.

Prelude and"fugue in D major..ach (685-1750)
Ip his great work on J. S. BACH, Albert Sch-
weitzer writes: "The more complexly and intense-
ly the conscious and unconscious concepts and
ideas of the artist communicate themselves to us
through his art-work, the deeper is the impres-
Sion. It is then that he succeeds in stimulating
others to that vivacity of imaginative f e e i n g

The D major Prelude and Fugue constitute one
of the greater Bach organ works; at just what
period it was written makes little difference in its
pipce in the literature as far, as effect goes. That
effect is bound to be one of grandeur, brilliance,
vitality; and it is exactly through the intensity of
the Preldobe and the complexity of the Fugue, in
addition to the very evident fertility of imagina-
tion, that we arc uplifted when hearing music of
this kind - whether or not we understand every

Johann Joachim Quantz was a famous flutist;
he spent much of his time arranging concerts at
the Court of Frederick the Great, as well as in
givine' this royal muiian lessos on the flute,
and in writing something over three h u n d r e d
works for Frederick's exclusive use.
Ave Maria ..................rk adelt (1514-57)
This ever-popular number was transcribed for
organ by Franz Liszt; with further adaptation to
the modern o r g a n, an atmosphere is created
which must be very close to what we can well
imagine resulted when the work was heard during
the composer's life-time in some Flemish village.

A SORORITY girl (I can't say which sorority,
because it's rushing time) went out to The
Mill recently. The car that she was riding in
got stuck in the ditch; caused her to get home
four hours late.
The girl tried the doors and windows on the
first floor; found them all locked; went up the
fire-escape to the third floor; found a window
open; sneaked in; tiptoed down stairs to open
the door for her room-mate; tripped on the top
step of the last flight; fell down tfhe stairs; woke
up Uhe whole house; explained to the house presi-
dent that she had been stuck in a ditch; wasn't
reported to Aunt Alice Lloyd.

For Mr. Rainey. .
T HE tariff today, as is usually the
case, is the sub ject of political
controversy in the United States. We are per-
haps favored in that not echoes but original war
cries in the conflict will be heard here this after-
noon when the Hon. Henry T.ainey, Democratic
floor leader of the House of Representatives, and
traditional advocate of low tariff, addresses the
first Union forum of the year.
In the current phase of the tariff contest, the
Democrats would have us believe that the present
economic mess was largely brought about by a
business activity involving government-encour-
aged loans to foreign purchasers of U. S. prod-
ucts and a Republican tariff, system that made
impossible for our creditors the trade that would
have enabled them to pay back what they owed.
The Republicans would persuade us that only by
retaining the tariffs they have ,et up can the
relatively high standard of living in the United
States be maintained.
President Hoover, Governor Roosevelt, and edi -
torial writers from Walter Lippmnan on down are
taking part in the agitation. T.his af ternoon at
the Union Mr. Rainey will undoubtedly champion
the low-tariff attitude for which he is so well-
In order ilntelligently to c~oa"ider the problem
it seems to us that anyone should first be aware
of a fact that is pretty generally overlooked. This
fact is that less than 2% per cent of all United
States trade has a tariff imposed upon it.
According to any World Almanac-published,
incidentally, by an old low-tariff concern-our
imports during 1930, a bad year, amounted ap-
proximately to one twenty-fifth of our total trade,
foreign and domestic. According to the same au-
thority, and corroborated by figures in Depart-
ment of Commerce bulletins, our imports in 1929,
the boom year, amounted to slightly less than one
twentieth of our total trade. Perusal of the
Tariff Act of 1830 reveals that about two-thirds
of the goods entering this country are duty-free,
pa7)d it is therefore seen that less than 2% of the
trade of the United States is regulated in any
way by the existing tariff, which is a 'high' one
It would, of course, be irrational to build on
this single fact, significant as it may seem to be.
There are multitudinous other related questions,
which any mature deliberation of the problem
In the following paragraphs we have set forth
some of these other questions. The catalogue is
not complete; we o4er it merely as a list of some
of the questions that certainly must be answered
by any honest person who pretends to have a
rational tariff doctrine. We do nt' propose here
to attempt any answers: we leave that to per-
sons who, like Mr. Rainey, should be able to
demonstrate that they have thought 'the matter
WARD'S GREAT NATION -WIDE
Of the ten organ Symphonies by Widor, the six-
th (consisting of five movements) may be con-r
sidered to be the most interesting as a whole. Like
all of them, it is obviously strongly influenced by
the composer's long life in the church; he is now
elghty-seven years of age, and is still playing at
St. Sulpice, in Paris, where he has been organist
Widor's music is nearly always exalted in con-;
cept; in the ten Symphonies there are a number
of movements that are truly inspired, as, for in-
stance, the Allegro and Adagio played this after-
noon; at other times he becomes almost purely
dry and academic - which description may be
applied to the second section of the Intermezzo.
Apres 1Ete.... ......................Schmitt
Florent Schmitt is one of the most important of
contemporary French composers. As far as can be
determined, he has writtn but one composition for
organ - a Prelude, which will be heard later in
the season. That he "thinks in terms of the or-
chestra" is apparant; and his f a i lu r e to write
more for organ may be due to the fact that
French organs, even up to the present time, are
cumbersome, inflexible, and "traditional".

FIGHT FOR WORKING
To the Editor:
The case of nine Scottsboro negro boys who
were sentenced to death for the supposed attack
on two white girls, is to come before the Supreme
Court of the United States on Oct. 10.
This case has been a long, troublous road to
travel. If it had not been for the untiring efforts
of the International Labor D e f e n s e, the boys
would have been burned in the death-house long
ago. But the International Labor Defense has
been steeled in the forges of the class struggle,
and it is not surprising that a long , hard fight on,
the part of the I. L. D. should be crowned with
the achievement of bringing the case before the
highest court in the land.
All college stuudents' Socialist Club has ar-
ranged a mass meeting in Natural Science Audi-
torium to consider the immediate aspects of the
case; appropriate speakers will explain the issues.
This meeting is called for 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct.
5. All students should support this demonstra-
tion and throw their weight behind a fight for,
