terest it reigns, desire. Owing to the foresight
with which the Undergraduate Council conducted
the campus poll, men's votes were separated from
T those of women. The count, as everybody knows,
revealed that co-eds favor, by a tremendous ma-
jority, a change.
The Board of Representatives unanimously f a-
vors modification.
It should be easy to predict the action that
will be taken tomorrow by the Board of Directors.

Board Of Directors
Consider Hours...
T OMORROW the Women's Board of
Directors will meet to discuss pro-
Posed changes in women's hours.
In the all-campus vote taken two weeks ago
:o-eds went on record in favor of changes that
vould permit them to stay out until 1:30 Saturday
lights, and until 11:30 Sunday nights. Last Tues-
day the co-ed Board of Representatives voted
unanimously for modification of present regula-
,ions. The ballot made no half-hour distinctions;
['uesday the Board of Representatives, able to do
his, split on the question of one or 1:30 permis-
ion Saturday, but stuck together with only one
exception for 11:30 permission Sunday, and in
addition approved unanimously a proposal to al-
ow senior women one late permission night a

silly propaganda. The truth appears to be that
Hitler is of mixed German and Czech blood, and
his inferiority complex is based in part on the
fact that in pre-war Austria Czech blood caused
a man to lose caste in German circles.
Does the fact that Professor Koch was shot in
Czechoslovakia prove that the Nazi government
sponsored his murder?
A Quaker indorses the proposed boycott of the
Olympic Games in Berlin "unless Germany gives
Jewish contestants equal rights." Hitler has al-
ready given assurance that Jewish athletes will
not be prevented from participating in the Olym-
pics. Furthermore, since when has the holding of
the Olympics in a given country been an in-
dorsement of all the policies of that nation? They
have been held in the United States, where ne-
groes in the southern states have less opportunity
than whites to train for athletic events and in
the north are discriminated against in close de-
cisions and forbidden housing in the "best" hotels
when on tour. No one protests because the English
Oxford University does not give full athletic priv-
ileges to the American Rhodes ScholarM. We
might better protest against ever holding the
Olympics in Finland because of the bad sports-
manship of at least one of her athletes.
A Quaker would have us believe that the?
Nazi government does not represent the will of
the German people. Let it be admitted that the
non-Nazis did not fully voice themselves in the
last election, but can we forget that the Nazis
came into power in an election which was held
when other parties were in control? A sizeable
block of the people voted Republican in the last
election in this country, but if an election were
to be held at the present time in which the
people were to be called on simply to indorse or
not to indorse President Roosevelt and his policies,
would not most of these people vote in his favor?

HE THIRD of the faculty-concerts will open
this afternoon with the Bach concerto in C-
minor for two pianos and strings, performed by
two of the younger members of the faculty of the
School of Music, Ava Comin Case and Louise Nel-
son. Neither of these teachers has appeared be-
fore this year on this series, so their work will
have an especial interest. The double-concerto is
vigorous, with an effective second movement, hav-
ing a pleasing melody in the pianos with plucked
string accompaniment.
The two movements of the "Unfinished" sym-
phony of Schubert, which will be performed un-
der the direction of Dr. Moore, need little intro-
duction, since with its famous melody it is al-
ready the favorite of many.
The Saint-Saens Violoncello concerto is decid-
edly melodious in its appeal, also. The composer,
who was an organist, and a conductor as well, is
known for his descriptive music. This concerto
follows the formal line of composition, having va-
riety in its unity by changes of mood: from
lyricism to witticism, from complex duets to ob-
ligatos. Mr. Pick proves an ever-popular soloist
on these concerts.
To conclude the concert, a bright, rhythmic
Spanish Rhapsody by Chabrier has been chosen,
to be played by the orchestra.
The arrangement of these concerts this year,
providing the work of several artists on one pro-
gram rather than one performer presenting the
whole program, has the decided advantage of of-
fering more variety in types of 'music. Today's
program is a worthy example of the plan.

As for the touchy problem of the Jews, we can
only condemn the attitude of the German people
toward this element of its population; but we
should seek to understand it. After the war Ger-
many was flooded by a wave of Jews from eastern
Europe of a cultural standard much lower than
that of the German Jews. These immigrants, in
the manner so characteristic of them, speedily
gained a foothold in the business and professional
life of Germany. In Berlin non-Jewish lawyers
and physicians became almost non-existent. Is it
any wonder that the Germans came to hate the
Jews? I number several Jews among my closest
friends, and yet I should prefer to take my
medical or legal troubles to a non-Jew, especially
if the Jewish lawyers and doctors available were
in any considerable number of the less cultured
elements of that race. However much we condemn
race prejudice, we must admit that a large part
of the Jewish people are difficult for non-Jews
to get along with. No doubt the Jews think the
same of non-Jews. If it were almost impossible
to find a non-Jewish doctor or lawyer in Ann Ar-
bor, would not we have an outbreak of race
prejudice? Further, if we were all suffering from
extreme poverty and nearly every bank was con-
trolled by Jews, would we not turn against the
Jewish bankers? And would we not be still more
hateful if these dominating Jews were people of
no culture who had descended in thousands on
our shores only a few years ago?
It is unfortunate that the liberal magazines in
this country which usually do so much to dis-
courage prejudice against other nations, are now
leaders in the hue and cry against Germany. The
Jewish people play a prominent part in American
liberal sentiment, and it is not natural to expect
a man to be unprejudiced when he knows that a
nation has reduced his people to a subordinate
position.

The reasons advanced for the changes appear
lequate. The twelve-thirty deadline Saturday, it
argued, prevents a couple from enjoying a leis-1
'ely lunch if they dance until midnight. The
lidity of the argument is apparent: Judiciary
>uncil records show that nearly half of all late-
esses occur Saturday nights,
Later permission is wished for Sunday night so
iat co-eds may see a movie. At present the sec-
ad show, which is the one a couple normally at-
nds, is out of the question for Sunday night
ecause it does not end until after the women's
osing hour. With this argument it should be'
>inted out that Jerry Hoag, manager of the Ma-
stic and Michigan theatres, has s t a t e d that
e will not, as has been charged, lengthen his
rograms if women's hours are changed.
For special permission for seniors it is argued
hat a co-ed who has spent three years here
iould be accorded this extra privilege by virtue of
er University experience and maturity.
Against the changes it is argued that Health
nd Scholarship must be served before all else
nd that since the proposals would affect these
nfavorably they must not be accepted. This argu-
ient seems woefully weak. It is impossible to
elieve that an extra hour or half-hour on Sat-
rday and Sunday night would be physically
armful. A co-ed has plenty of time to sleep
unday morning; and as far as Sunday night
concerned, she probably would not be in bed
efore 11:30 anyway. As for the senior priv-
ege, a girl in her last year must have learned!
.ow frequently it is wise for her to stay up late.
Viewed from another angle, it might be said
f the Health-Scholarship argument that any

SANITY, HITLER,
AND WORLD PEACE
To The Editor:
The militant letter from the Quaker to The
Daily is a depressing indication of the fact that
human beings are capable of making themselves
believe the most ridiculous lies about a nation
or a political group or an individual whose policies
they dislike. No doubt a Quaker believed during
the war that the Germans cut off Belgian babies'
hands, put cholera germs in their shells, mixed
ground glass with flour in American flour mills,
and prompted the Russian Revolution. The hatred
based on such silly beliefs - sponsored by the
British agents who were so eager to get the
United States into the European conflict -I
plunged us into one war; and hatred based on
such beliefs can plunge us into another.
I do not believe in Naziism. The narrow re-
cession of the Nazis within the walls of national-
ism is a menace to world peace. They are throw-
ing aside hundreds of years of human progress.
They have destroyed the good will toward the
German people so laboriously built up by Strese-
mann. Their doctrine of Aryanism is scientifically
unsound. They have encouraged brutality. But I
ask a Quaker and other Americans, however much
we dislike the Nazi doctrine, to do two things:
(1) to reject the unsound and ridiculous beliefs
about the Nazis and Hitler; (2) to attempt to
understand how the German people came to ac-
cept a set of doctrines so opposed to the German
traditions of liberalism and tolerance.
A Quaker accepts the utterly ridiculous charge
that the Nazis set fire to the Reichstag building,
in spite of the fact that the Duchman Van der
Lubbe has confessed and constantly reiterated
that he set the fire. A confession might be forced
by torture, but would Van der Lubbe continue to
insist in open court that he set the fire if he
were not guilty? Any unprejudiced observer must
recognize the deed was the act of a cracked
mentality. (All the insane or near-insane people
are not within the Nazi ranks.) Furthermore, what
point whatsoever would there have been in the
Nazis' setting afire the Reichstag building after
they had come into power? Can anyone imagine
any American political group - Democrat, Com-
munist, or Farmer-Labor - setting afire the na-
tional capital after that group had come into
control of things? Such a deed is the act of a

Undoubtedly the main reason the Germans
voted for the Nazis was in protest against the
continued efforts of the other nations of Europe
to keep Germany in the status of a conquered
nation, with the disgraceful yoke of war guilt upon
her. The Nazi victory is the result of the treaty of
Versailles and is a protest against the lordly
hypocrisy of the other nations. Hitler said very
truly that Germany carried out faithfully the
treaty provisions which were declared to be pre-
liminary to a general disarmament, but the other
nations of Europe have continued to carry heavy
armaments.

WHAT S

IN

NAp

Visitors to Germany assure us that the stories
of mob violence against the non-Nazis and the
Jews have been greatly over-exaggerated' and
that the German people do indorse Hitler. Are
we going to continue to believe only what we
choose to believe and refuse to see anything on
the credit side of the ledger?
We do not want anything like Hitlerism in this
country. We hope for a more tempered policy in
Germany. But let us not breathe fire and brim-
stone, let us not be vindictive with hate, let us not
believe ridiculous falsehoods of another nation's
government, unless we are willing and ready to
plunge into another World War.

National Zoological gardens here for the valuable

Dr. William T. Mann, the director, had just
about given up hope. Then his wife invited mem-

In the interim she spent hours training a green
parrot. As each guest arrived he had to pass a
door where the parrot was squawking:
"How about that appropriation? How about
