T HE WEAK POINT in all of the
preseiit laws againt kidnaping
has been brought out strikingly in the Bremer
case in Minneapolis.
The son of a wealthy brewer has been abducted.
The family of the victim has received one note
from the kidnapers demanding $200,000 and have
not since, as far as the police know, been in con-
tact with the kidnapers. They have sent appeals
through the press saying that the money was
ready and have asked the police "to leave them
In the latter appeal is contained the vicious
aspect of the case and the whole wave of kid-
naping which has been sweeping the nation.
Kidnapers work on fear. They hope that mem-
bers of their victims' families will be thrown into
such terror that they will keep the arm of the
law at a safe distance. The appeal for the police
to "keep off" voices an individualistic viewpoint.
In the interest of law and order, it should not be
tolerated. If the members of a few families placed
in the position of the Bremers defied the outlaws
even at the sacrifice of one of their loved ones,
kidnaping might soon become a lost art.
There are many who condemn lynch law, but
the latter is no more vicious than co-operation
with kidnapers. If the present kidnaping wave
is to end, someone somewhere must make a sacri-
If the desired results cannot be obtained by the
co-operation of individual families, the law must
make an attempt to fill the loophole. Laws mak-
ing the failure to notify the police of all contacts
in kidnaping cases a criminal act might do some-
thing to remedy the situation.
And the police, when they know that a kidnap-
ing has occurred, should under no condition
cease to do their utmost to capture the perpetra-
tors of the act.
annual convention takes one through all the pro-
cesses of evading domineering wives and of find-
ing methods of raising the devil. The picture's
only purpose is to be entertaining, and this end
is accomplished entirely too mildly.
In giving us a stage show this week, the man-
agers of the Michigan theatre have payed off the
student body in grand style, because it seems that
in Jackson and elsewhere the fan dancer (who is,
of course, the "piece de resistance") removed
BOTH fans, but not so in Ann Arbor! We should
rise in indignation, because after sitting through
everything from a trained bear act to a master of
ceremonies of the machine-gun era, to be let
down with such a disappointment is just too
much. However, as Ann Arbor stage shows go over
in general so does this one.
In place of a comedy there is a very gory short
about automobile racing. In it one sees many
bodies hurled through the air and such enter-
tainment that makes one forget the shortcom-
ings of the rest of the show and also causes one
to be ever so thankful that he has not chosen as
a career to drive to his doom on a race track.
THE FIFTH program of the Faculty Concert
Series opened with the Brahms Sonata in G,
Opus 78, for Violin and Piano. Mr. Besekirsky and
Mr. Brinkman, who performed the score, made
this a truly aesthetic experience. The co-ordina-
tion of the two instruments, a difficult thing to
attain in this sonata, was decidedly well-main-
tained, and with the tonal quality flexible and
nicely tempered, it was a happy performance.
Mr. Hackett, in top form, sang two groups of
lieder of Schubert and Schumann, of which the
most outstanding was the exquisite "Du bist die
Ruh" of Schubert. All the songs were done in a
sincere manner and gave Mr. Hackett a chance
to display his dramatic ability as well as his voice
The highlight of the program was a suite for
Violin and Piano by Jack Conklin (who is not
connected with the School of Music). Extreme
modern, it is a combination of jazz rhythms and
unusual harmony, particularly true of the last
movement, "allegro ritmico." The audience liked it,
The concert closed with the Casella, "Siliciano
e Burlesca," in which Mr. Pick added his spirited
cello playing to the violin and piano. The hu-
mour of the Burlesca seemed to escape the audi-
ence, perhaps because it used in a more intensive
manner the same unusual rhythms on a jag that
were in the Suite ad because you never can
tell about modern harmony. The Sicilian dance
melody, upon which this Casella work is based,
is extremely attractive.
Mr. Brinkman's piano work was consistent
throughout the program, the backbone, so 10

are going to step aside next week, in favor of a
program of concertos and arias given by grad-
uating students assisted by the University Sym-
phony Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Earl

CRITICIZES SLOSSON'S VIEWS
ON CORRIDOR PROBLEM
Professor Slosson's views on the so-called Polish
Corridor question, in the Jan. 18 issue of The
Michigan Daily, smacks of a certain condescend-
ing superciliousness and of a suavely sourish re-
luctance in appraising facts at their proper value,
which is usually an outstanding characteristic of
the German school of historians.
The martyrdom of the Polish nation, after the
three partitions of Poland, and its never-relenting
resistance against this flagrant act of invasion and
oppression he characterizes mildly as "unrest" in
Polish territory after the partition of Poland.
He considers it a just postulate, that "geograph-
ical unity" be accorded to Germany by taking
Pomerania (Pomorze) from Poland, but he forgets
to mention that for several centuries uninter-
ruptedly, up 'til the partition of Poland, this ter-
ritory has belonged to Poland; that before the
partition of Poland it was never part of Gernany;
and that this lack of geographical unity appar-
ently has not prevented Prussia from becoming a
powerful, prosperous and voracious state.
His half-hearted conclusion, that "cold-blood-
edly" it might be better to give this territory to
Germany, because Germany "is the stronger of
the two powers and might be able to hold it,"
would appear to be tantamount to giving a legal
title to any robber who can prove that he has
sufficient equipment in guns to protect his loot
against the rightful owner.

COMING TO THE LYDIA
On the evenings of Thursday, Friday, and Sat-
urday of this week, the Art Cinema League is pre-
senting the German film "Der Hauptmann Von
Koepenick" (The Bogus Captain 'of Koepenick)
taken from the stage play of the same name by
The story, which will be easy to follow because
of the English translations which bring out the
fine dialogue, too, concerns a historical incident
in Germany beginning back in 1906. Wilhelm
Voigt, an ex-convict desperately searching for his
passport, buys a second-hand officer's uniform
and descends upon a small town of Koepenick,
arrests its frightened burgomaster, confiscates the
municipal treasury, but in vain and decamps be-
cause he is unfortunate to find out that the town
was too small to have any passports.
The reaction to this episode brought chuck-
ling results in the columns of many newspapers
throughout Germany and Europe. The method
with which author Zuckmayer treats the inci-
dent brings out many touches of humor and
satire on the military mlature of the German gov-
ernment at the time, advanced1 reports say. Rich-
ard Oswald, diretor, has recreated the Germany
of tilar <;-Wa flays, with its monarchy, its out
alid chanuellors, its discipline, its sleepy litt e
Prussian villages. While Max Adalb-rt, in the
lead, has been praised and congratulated for his
fine characterization of the Captain, a role writ-
ten originally for the great German aetor Werner
It has been said:
From Berlin: "A great reception was accorded
this fine film"-Berliner Tageblatt.
From London: "Brilliantly directed, brilliantly
photographed, brilliantly cast."-London Tatler.
From New York: "Koepenick ranks next to
'Cavalcade' as the best 1933 picture."-N. Y.
In addition to the feature, the Art Cinema has
to offer a Mickey Mouse cartoon and the second
in the series of the "Battle For Life," bringing
forth microscopic pictures of insects in their vari-
ous battles for life.

Teacher's College we learn that certain in-

they left the main building. Another example
of the old adage: "An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure."
A student at the University of Southern Califor-
nia has a novel way of working his way through
college. He operates a dairy composed of two
cows. One of them went dry recently and the
poor chap had to apply to the school for a loan.
