In Politics. .
D IFFERING from the average sight-
seeing groups who make Washing-
ton one of their pet centers of activity and from
the boys from back home who have political axes
to grind, were the groups of college students who
visited Washington during the Christmas holidays.
One group consisted of the ordinary, tea-drink-
ing assortment of college activity leaders who
found this adventure into politics somewhat of a
lark. They handed Mrs. Roosevelt a bouquet of
roses, passed several resolutions, gnashed more,
and had a grand ball and banquet.
The other group, representing the liberal ele-
ment in the American colleges of today, came to
express their opinions to the government on a
number of subjects in which they were vitally
Secretary Wallace, addressing them, told them
that the youth of the United States was too smug,
too complacent, and too self-satisfied. He de-
nounced college football as a racket, welcomed
them as fellow liberals, and praised their interest
in the affairs of government. Federal Education
Commissioner Zook told the other groups that
college students were "too darn docile." He said:
"They are too easily bossed. They don't create
enough problems for the college and universities."
Amazing words these, from Secretary Wallace
and Commissioner Zook. More amazing still, the
reception given the liberal group. Try to imagine
a group like the second being welcomed to Wash-
ington two years ago with the status of "fellow-
liberals." It is significant and gratifying that
Secretary Wallace said "liberals," not Democrats.
Wp are undergoing a revolution in government
and economics. It is encouraging to see the gov-
ernment reaching out a helping hand to the lib-
eral leaders who would make the college more
than a place to make the team or get elected to
an honor society .

Franck is known as being a quiet, introspective
composer. However, at times his music has great
force and excitement. Franck was the founder of
the modern French School, his writing being char-
acterized by chromaticism. Franck was for many
years the organist of the Cathedral of St. Cloth-
ilde in Paris, and wrote "some of the finest music
in organ literature." The Piece Heroique con-
tains the two phases of Franck's writing.

JOINS MUSIC FACULTY
DALIES FRANTZ, distinguished young pianist
well known to Ann Arbor, will become a mem-
ber of the faculty of the University School of
Music, the second semester, it has been announced
by the University School of Music.
Mr. Frantz is a graduate of the School of Music
and has won great distinction through his concert
activities. He has been heard in tours throughout
the United States; among engagements for this
year are included appearances with the Chicago,
Detroit, Philadelphia, and Denver Orchestras.
Last spring he won the first prize for young Amer-
ican pianists in the contest provided at the Bien-
nial Convention of the Federation of Music Clubs
at Minneapolis, and also the Schubert Memorial
In addition to his concert activities and his own
studies both in this country and abroad, he has
been most successful with a large class of private
students whom he has instructed.
It is highly encouraging to note that %;he Music
School is able even in these times of depression,
to make so valuable an addition to its facullty.
And it is a delight to compliment Mr. Frantz on
this further recognition of his talent.
itures. Now a bill is before Congress which would
bring the fleet to treaty strength by 1939 by the
addition of 102 ships. This will cost approxi-
mately $516,000,000 each year- an increase of
375 per cent over our expenditures. There is a
similar increase of expenditures in England and
other countries, although they are insignificant
compared to ours.
Contrary to the common impression, land arma-
ments are more costly than naval armaments, with
the exception of the island countries - Japan
and Great Britain. Thus in 1928-29 the United
States spent $43,000,000 more for the army than
for the navy. Not only are armies more expensive
but also more provocative of international strife.
Every twenty-four hours the Untied States
spends approximately $200,000 on its army and
navy. All the nations together spend more than
$10,000,000, a day for war preparations.
These armaments, instead of guaranteeing
peace, provoke war. This is the testimony of his-
tory. Do you want peace? Or do you want war?
If you want peace, then work for peace. Help to
develop a public opinion that will demand drastic
reductions of armies, navies, and air forces.
Armaments imply that international quarrels
can be settled only by force - only by war. Do
you believe this? If you don't, then work for dis-
armament and the strenghtening of the world's
Partly as an after effect of the Great War, and
while the nations are spending $4,500,000 for the
upkeep of their armies, navies, and air forces in
1932, the world faces problems of unprecedented
difficulty: 25,000,000 men out of work (12,000,000
in the U. S.), threats of revolution, bankrupt na-
tions, poverty and starvation in many lands, stag-
nated trade, bank failures, and drastic curtailment
of school funds. The income of our own univer-
sity from State funds was reduced from $4,182,000
So we see that disarmament and what it in-
volves is not only for statesmen at Geneva to
think about, but is, rather, a problem which
directly affects us.
Litvinoff has announced that Russia is ready to
disarm. Roosevelt has just ennunciated his policy
of "live and let live" which we hope will develop
into genuine peace policy in regards to interna-

RELEASES "THE PIGEON"
By JOHN PRITCHARD
AFTER beating its wings frantically against the
bars of its wicker cage for some while, "The
Pigeon" of John Galsworthy has at last completed
its fattening process and will be produced for in-
spection Saturday afternoon in Detroit. The play
has suffered one or two postponements, but we
are definitely assured by those who know that
the Bonstelle Civic management will waste no
more time in giving this vehicle to its public.
The current postponement has been caused by
the growing inadvisability of breaking up the the
run of "The Late Christopher Bean." It had pre-
viously been announced that "The Pigeon" would
fit in nicely on Wednesday and Thursday nights,
leaving "Christopher" to finish out the week. The
matinee performance on Saturday of "The Pig-
eon" will be followed by a bit more of "Christo-
pher"; the Galsworthy opus will then cross the
boards for additional evenings.
Whitford Kane, who created the leading role
in London twenty-two years ago, resumes the
part, and in addition will direct the entire pro-
duction - using, if you please, the original prompt
copy of 1912 vintage. The audience is thus as-
sured of pure, unadulterated Galsworthy. Mr.
Kane has letters to prove tht Galsworthy, a close
personal friend, requested him to play the role
when the show first opened.
The usual quota of campus luminaries is to
be in the supporting cast. They include Fred-
eric O. Crandall, Charles Moyer, and Laurence
A few scholastics on campus will remember that
a playwright by the name of Shakespeare, feel-
ing a spell of cynicism coming on him, produced
a play called "All's Well That Ends Well," which
he chose to call a comedy, but which actually
was a rather mean social satire. Amateurs have
handled the play on occasion, but heretofore no
professional company has produced it in America.
Following the dove-tailed runs of "Christopher
Bean" and "The Pigeon," the Bonstelle Civic will
bring "All's Well" to the Detroit stage. This, of
course, will be somewhat in the nature of an
By its Legislature's vote to ratify the child labor
amendment to the Constitution, Iowa becomes the
sixteenth state to approve Federal action in ending
a great social evil of our times. Though a predom-
inantly agricultural State, Iowa has disregarded
the chief argument offered nowadays by oppon-
ents of the measure - that its ratification would
deprive parents of their children's services in farm
work and household tasks. (The former chief
argument, that child labor legislation impaired
freedom of contract, is no longer heard, since the
public has become conscious of the need for stop-
ping the exploitation of children by unscrupulous
employers.) Iowa, it is also interesting to note,
has no fear that its children will be taken from
their parents and reared in concentration camps,
as hysterical opponents of the amendment have
recently been saying.
The names of the persons who have signed the
latest appeal for ratification by the states should
end whatever serious consideration may have been
given the contention that the measure is an enter-
ing wedge of Communism. Among the signers are
Govs. Landon of Kansas, Lehman of New York,
Ely of Massachusetts, Pinchot of Pennsylvania;
Senators Wagner of New York, Capper of Kansas;
such pastors as the Rev. S. Parkes Cadman and
Bishop Charles K. Gilbert of New York, and Rabbi
Edward L. Israel of Baltimore.
In Missouri, ratification of the amendment has
been voted by the House and is pending before
the Senate. The example of our neighboring State
should be an encouraging one to the Missouri
Senate. Its favorable vote is needed if the temp-
orary remedy of the NRA codes in abolishing child
labor is to be .nade permanent before the codes'
expiration, in about 18 months. As Senator Wag-
ner has said: "It is absolutely essential to con-
solidate the gains which have been made under
the Recovery Act." To hope that the states would
do separately what the amendment will do is to
be naive. They have had their chance, and so
forfeited their sovereignty in this field to the

Bennington College, a small school in Vermont,
has a gentle way of flunking out students - some-
thing intimate and cozy about it. (At least this
article came up during an appropriate time). The
student is told that he can stay if he so desires,
but he will not get a diploma when it is all over.
If that does not discourage the unfortunate, then
he is really flunked out. But most of them take
