Student Chiselers.,,
T IS BEING rumored that many
students applying for and receiv-
ing FERA aid are chiselers. The story is spread-
ing'that lots of those onathe FERA list really
don't need :F'ERA help and are consequently
violating the spirit of the government's generous
proposal, clearly worded to apply only to those
who could not continue their education without
its assistance.
This is a serious charge. What is more, there is
strong evidence that in some cases at least it is
Notwithstanding this fact, we believe it is too
early to criticize Dean Bursley, University FERA
Administrator. The initial purpose of the appro-
priation is to take care as quickly as possible of
every student who without Federal aid would be
forced to leave school. This means that the initial
goal of Dean Bursley must be to make sure that
everyone needing aid gets it - at once.
In the press of many applications, and with
only a small office to handle them all, it is in-
evitable that some persons will seek and receive
aid who knowingly or unknowingly do not deserve
it. But all cases will be checked as soon as pos-
sible, and the sheep will be separated from the
Thus everything is to be sacrificed to speed,
which in this case is as it would be; no needy
student must be forced to leave Ann Arbor be-
cause a slow moving administration is unable to
reach him before it is too late.
This is the substance of the remarks President

Ruthven made yesterday. It is the only practical
view of the situation that is possible.
But this in no way mitigates the offense of
what chiselers there may be. They are exploiting
the dire need of less fortunate students for im-
mediate aid. They are seeking personal profit
that they do not deserve and was not intended
for them from the circumstance of carlessness
made necessary by crisis. This is as mean an ac-
tivity as any' student could engage in.
Cases are reported that are so flagrant that they
are difficult to believe - and everyone who has
~given thought to the matter hopes they are false.
There are probably some students undeservedly
receiving FERA aid but honestly unaware of
guilt. To protect themselves, all FERA workers
who have the slightest doubt about the legitimacy
of their status should obtain enlightenment from
the proper authorities at once.
This country is undergoing a tremendous ex-
periment. It must not be wrecked by deliberate
nonconformity to the rules that have been laid
down, the most liberal of our history.

consisted of a series of short talks on the German
situation by a number of prominent statesmen
and authors, including Al Smith and New York's
Mayor La Guardia. The chairman was Samuel
Seabury. This inquest, incidentally, was carried
on just a few hours after a not dissimilar one
at Washington directed at our own administra-
tion -not forbidden, but actually at the invita-
tion of the head of the government.1
Hitler apparently was incensed at the thought
that his great name and humanitarian prin-
ciples should be submitted to the indignity of
criticism. The man who thinks he has benefitted
his country by abrogating her right of free speech
seems to be under the illusion that he can smother
honest opinion in this country as well.
The action of the German government in offi-
cially complaining about the meeting is an amaz-
ing illustration of the insanely absolutist philos-
ophy of German Naziism. It will certainly cause
even more world resentment than there is at
present against the illogical and dangerous mega-
lomaniac who is today Germany's man of the
Musicald Events
"I Pagliacci" by Leoncavallo, and Richard
Strauss' one-act opera "Salome" (pronounced
Sah-lo-may) will be broadcast this afternoon, be-
ginning at 1:45 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
They will be on the air over both chains of the
National Broadcasting Company, under- the aus-
pices of the American Tobacco Company.
A resume of each opera follows:
THE OPERA opens with a musical prologue dur-
ing which Tonio puts his head through the
c'urtains and asks "May I?" Stepping befoie
the footlights and bowing, he continues, explain-
ing the opera roughly and stating that it is a
real story. Finished, he cries for the curtain and
it rises on.
ACT I. The scene is a little Italian village on
the Feast of the Assumption, and a group of na-
tives are seen welcoming "The Paggliacci" (the
players). On behalf of his performers, Canio
thanks the villagers for their kind reception and
invites them to return for the evening perform-
ance. As he concludes his address, Tonio, a mis-
shapen clown, assists Nedda, Canio's wife, from
the cart in which she traveled. Naturally jealous
and aroused by the laughter of the crowd, Canio
boxes the fellow's ears. When one of the men
suggests a drink and Canio calls to Tonio to
join them, the latter declines because he has
considerable work to finish. A villager jestingly
hints that Tonio remains behind to make love
to Nedda and Canio tells what he would do to
the man who would dare steal the affections of
his wife(. At this point, a troupe of bagpipe
players pass and the villagers leave the scene
in couples to the tune of the famous "Chorus of
the Bells." Nedda, alone, muses at length on
Canio's jealousy, when Tonio reappears and vio-
lently protests his love for her. She beats him
off with a whip and he swears vengeance. As the
clown leaves, Silvio, a villager and her lover, ap-
proaches and, declaring his love, urges her to
run away with him. After some hesitation, she
agrees to leave that night. They are interrupted
by Canio, and Silvio vaults a nearby wall and
escapes without Canio having seen his face. Tonio
appears and laughs gleefully, for it was he who
advised the jealous actor of his wife's infidelity.
Pursuit having been fruitless, Canio returns and
demands the name of her lover. He is restrained
from stabbing her by Peppe. Since it is almost
time for the performance, the players go about the
work of preparation leaving Canio alone to sing
a heart-rending melody in which he tells himself
he must go on with the show and make his
patrons laugh even though his own heart is
ACT II: It is the hour of the performance, and
Tonio is beating the drum to summon the vil-
lagers. Silvio also arrives and takes a seat among
the spectators. The curtain is drawn showing
Nedda in the costume of Columbine. She waits
nervously for someone although, as she explains
to the audience, her husband will not return till
late. She is startled by the sound of a guitar and

the voice of Harlequin (Peppe) is heard serenad-
ing her, but before Harlequin can enter Taddeo
(Tonio) arrives carrying a basket. He immediately
begins to make love to Columbine and has his
buffoonery cut short by Harlequin who leads
him from the room by the ear as the spectators
howl in amusement. Harlequin gives the woman a
vial to make her husband sleep soundly and thus
aids them in making their escape. Suddenly the
clown re-appears and advises them that Pag-
liaccio is near. Harlequin leaps through the win-
dow as Pagliaccio enters. At that moment, Colum-
bine (Nedda) calls to Harlequin the very words
Canio heard when he discovered his wife in his
lovers' arms. Stunned, he almost forgets his part
as Pagliaccio and asks for her paramour's name.
She cries jokingly in the character of Columbine
"Pagliaccio! Pagliaccio!" With this, the jealous
actor throws aside his role and sings the impas-
sioned "No! Punchinello No More!" The audience
unaware that this is not part of the play, cries
"Bravo." Pale, but courageous, Nedda continues
the role of Columbine. She informs Punchinello
that the man she entertains was only the harm-
less Harlequin. The villagers laugh heartily but
cease upon seeing the expression on Canio's face.
Peppe approaches from the background, but Tonio
holds him back. Canio, crazed with anger, again
demands her lover's name. Nedda refuses to di-
vulge his identity. Silvio draws his dagger but is
restrained by those near him in the audience. As
Xedda tries to escape toward the spectators, Canio
seizes her and plunges a dagger into her heart. As
she falls she cries "Help me, Silvio!" With this,
Silvio breaks away and runs to her. As the youth
bends over the fallen woman. Canio strikes the
dagger into him muttering "Twas you!" Then,
stupified, he lets the knife fall and addressing his

WHEN night finally falls on 10 hours' hard
work for Representative Isabella Greenway of
Arizona she peeks up and down the darkened
halls of the House office building -- and then
straps on her roller-skates.
She has some dinner sent in and the roller-
skates are her unique way of getting some exercise
before she starts in on more work.
Twice Mrs. Greenway almost has been "caught."
Congressmen stepped out of offices down the hall.
Mrs. Greenway didn't relish being recognized so
she stopped skating and stood with her face to
the wall.

The doll sits on her desk and Mrs. Jenckes uses
it for a hat rack.
CHESLEY JURNEY, sergeant-at-arms of the
Senate has a standing invitation to arrest
Senator Hattie Caraway of Arkansas.
Mrs. Caraway issued the invitation after after
the recent flurry in which Jurney arrested Wil-
liam McCracken, Jr., on a charge of being in con-
tempt of the Senate.
Since the Senate is not in the habit of having
prisoners on hand, Jurney had to take McCracken
to one of the capital's hoity-toity hotels.
"And the only way I'll ever get to stay at that
hotel," says Mrs. Caraway, "is for you to arrest
me, Mr. Jurney."
CHARLES P. BLOOM of Philadelphia afforded
the serious and crowded NRA code convention
one of its few laughs.
He was in the midst of an impassioned plea
for corrections of the NRA machinery .when he
suddenly dropped his arms, which he had been
waving, and began slapping himself about the
hips. Smoke rolled from a coat pocket.
"Oop," he said, "I put a lighted cigar in my
The crowd laughed, and the next minute Bloom
was off again in his speech. But again he began
slapping his hips, and more smoke appeared. This
time he dived into his pocket and pulled out a
pack of smoking letters.
He caught a frown on the chairman's face as
the auditorium roared.
"Honest," said Bloom, "this isn't stage stuff."
