Campus Opinion




ONE OF THE CAPITAL'S liberals was confronted
with the task of introducing Ambassador Alex-
ander Troyanovsky of Russia to an editor of a
Wall Street paper. He minced .no words about it,
"Mister So-and-So, of Wall street," he said, "may
I present Ambassador Troyanovsky of the Soviet
Union. You two will have nothing in common,"
Senator George Norris, the veteran from Ne-
braska, loves to play his accordion. But he confines
the playing to his home.
However, the information that a quartet is form-
ing is just a battle cry to him. He rushes to volun-
teer his booming bass voice.

his presence at the capitol while the cherry blossom
festival was on drew a remark from Col. Edwin
A. Halsey, secretary of the Senate.
"Why aren't you at the festival?" asked Halsey.

ANOTHER CHAPTER has been written in the
history of the taxicab which Representative
Isabella Greenway of Arizona hired when she came
to Congress.
After the first week here she found her fares
were running so high that she contracted for a
taxi by the week. The driver even brought his
small son along to play with Mrs. Greenway's son.
Now the story leaks out that Mrs. Greenway
finally bought the taxi, had the sign painted off
the side and hired the former owner as a chauf-

McGlassen has found that it really does pay to be
He started off to a very exclusive small persons'
party after careful admonition from his mother.
"Now be polite," she said, "and don't refuse any-
thing at the dinner table."
He came home, all smiles, to report that the sys-
tem had worked.
"I didn't refuse a thing," he said. "And I had
five plates of ice-cream."

To the Editor:
Being a loyal but conservative alumnus of the
University, it was with consequent regret that I
learned of the abolition of the traditional Swing-
out. While I never was particularly sympathetic
toward certain superfluous and unnecessary class
activities which the institution practically abol-
ished in the past few years, yet I am convinced
that elimination of Swingout destroys a cherished
custom replete with sentiment and greatly desired
by the student body. The average or normal under-
graduate holds Swingout in high esteem, and as
the years of study elapsed this event became of
increasing interest. It marked a definite monument
to which the student and alumnus could refer
with meaning, sentiment, and pride, without which
the University loses its traditional color and thus
denies the student a cherished memory which the
institution owes to its members as a heritage for
future years. Inadequate disciplinary control
should not oblige the innocent to suffer with the
guilty. Therefore, if the theory herein presented
serves to enlist a plea and united effort to main-
tain Swingout my duty is fulfilled in a noble pur-
To the Editor:
Kindly print this in reply to the insipid bleating
of the young man who can't take it --I refer
to the very, very L.M.O.C.
He desires women a have a family, do the house-
work, and tramp out to work each day. Wot a man!
Does he realize man has been getting plenty for
nothing ever since mountains were pebbles? Just
how much would a housekeeper charge to do the1
work and stand for his nasty temper? How much
would a cook demand for catering to his enormous
appetite and for waiting meals until he staggers
in? How much would a nursemaid charge to care
for his squalling brats? (I could keep this up for
hours) All this (and plenty more) he gets in a
wife for practically nothing.
To tart anew: he desires woman to work in order
to help support the family. Pray tell, what family?
Doesn't he know it's the fashion (in fact the
necessity) for the women to have them, that it
takes quite a time, and also that after they are
born you can't park 'em on the chandelier and
keep them there until they are old enough to
get themselves a wife to share expenses?
It will be woman's duty to "share expenses"
when the husband can take a share in the house-
work and having the babies - and then, as our
Little Man says, it will be "J-u-s-t t-o-o b-a-d"

A N ELECTRIC CLOCK keeps time as accu-
rately as the finest watch. It never
requires winding or attention, it is noiseless,
and it is absolutely dependable. Yet it
requires so little electricity in its operation
that the amount of current it uses is scarcely
sufficient to turn your meter. The cost of
operation hardly exceeds a fifth of a cent
a day.
All of your other household electric
appliances are just as dependable, just as
untiring. And their wages are measured in
pennies or fractions of a penny. An electric
washer, for example, costs 2 cents a week

THE STORIES that Representative Florence
Kahn of California tells on herself are quite
often the best in her large collection.
She tells of attending a recent masquerade where
the guests were asked to dress as Biblical char-
acters. But jolly, white-haired Mrs. Kahn had the
rest puzzled. Finally she was awarded the prize
as the character most difficult to guess. She an-
nounced she was "the hand-maiden whom no
man desired."
One of the most interested spectators before a
street baseball scoreboard on a recent sunny after-
noon was Senator Carter Glass of Virginia.
He takes little interest in sports except baseball,
and then it's only when Connie Mack's Athletics
are playing.
POSTMASTER "JIM" FARLEY is having a dif-
ficult time convincing his friends that he
really knows nothing about horses and horse-
A group of men insisted that he attend the
races with them. Farley, the self-named "novice,"
bought a $2 ticket. It paid $37.
"So you don't know anything about horses,"
chided his friends.
"Now look here," said Farley. "That horse's name
was 'Jane Ellen,' wasn't it? Well, 'Ellen' was my
mother's name, and I like it."
There was nary a drink in sight when the
Texas Press Association gave'a dinner in honor of
Vice-President Garner, with Jesse Jones, of RFC,
as toastmaster, and Senator Morris Sheppard, the
dry advocate,,as another honor guest.

Screen Reflectins

Due to error, the current film at the Mich-
igan Theatre, "The Show-Off," was rated two stars
minus in yesterday's paper instead of three stars
minus as was intended. Spencer Tracy's portrayal
of the braggart raises this film to this level. There
are many excellent features in the movie that are
worthwhile seeing, especially its logical adherence
to the dominant theme.

F1OR THOSE WHO STILL believe the
World War was fought to make the
world safe for democracy (in spite of the harvest
of Fascist dictatorships directly attributable to the
four-year slaughter), the figures offered below may
prove difficult to explain.
In each instance, the first figure quoted repre-
sents the profit of the company in four peace years,
the second figure the profits in four war years:
United States Steel - $10,000,000 and $239,000,-
000; Dupont Corp.- $6,000,000 and $58,000,000;
Bethlehem Steel - $6,000,000 and $49,000,000; At-
las Powder Corp. -$485,000 and $2,000,000; Her-
cules Powder - $1,000,000 and $7,000,000; Nites-
Bement Powder Corp. - $656,000 and $6,000,000
(almost 10 times!) ; Scoville Manufacturing Co. -
$655,000 and $7,000,000 (more than 10 times!) ; and
General Motors, $7,000,000 and $21,000,000. Ana-
conda Copper, Utah Copper, American Smelting
& Refining, Republic Iron and Steel, and Inter-
national Mercantile Marine are others whose bal-
ance sheets show similar profits.
These figures, it should be noted, are those car-
ried by the Associated Press, and emanate from
the United States Senate, not from a radical source.
They are the opening counter-blasts of Senators
Nye and Vandenberg, who are planning an attack
on the armament interests, expose fashion, in an
attempt "to take the profit out of war."
What would be the reaction of the 2,000 odd
Michigan students and alumni who gave their lives
to the treachery of the "secret international" -
the armaments ring - in the World War if they
could see these figures? Would they give in so
easily the next time someone handed them a flag
and herded them across the seas to fight an
imperialist war? Hardly.
The pity is that Michigan students today, as
well as others the country over, are so apathetic
to figures like these. The three digits which so
many arms companies were able to tack snugly on
to their accounts during war time produce no reac-
tion in the college student who will be called on for
the next butchery.
No matter what political creed you, as a Mich-
igan student, profess, the figures you have just
read should produce in you a thorough loathing for
the situation which permitted these profits to be

The Theatre
A RETURN ENGAGEMENT for one afternoon
of "Jack and the Beanstalk," yesterday at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, gives occasion for
a brief reemphasis on. the value of the Children's
Theatre. It is a movement which is slowly gaining
ground all over the country, but this year has
marked its inception in Ann Arbor.
The cause of building up illusion in the mind of
the child has rather suffered, in recent years, by
adverse criticisms from those who believe that chil-
dren should be educated as soon as possible to the
hard facts of life. These materialistic critics have,
however, neglected one important point: illusion,
fantasy, imagination if you will, are facts, as much
as are cheeses and locomotives and political con-
ventions. Imagination is a fact of the mind; it is
a function of the brain, and a decidedly pleasant
function if rightly directed. Its sane and healthy
fostering may result in the salvation of a child
destined to material failure, or it may aid immeas-
urably the advancement of a child fated for ma-
terial success. It will provide a rich fund of thought

Opportunity knocks. A professor at Northwestern
University, while performing experiments on a
student whom he had hypnotized, was proceeding
satisfactorily until he asked the student, "Can you
shadow box?"
"Sure," replied the student, and landed one with
a resounding wallop on the professor's jaw.
A junior at Illinois thinks that city dates
and campus dates are similar in that they both
resemble a popular brand of cigarettes. That
is, one of them satisfies and the other is mild.
I'll leave it to you to figure out which is which.
The college doctor at Carnegie Tech at Pitts-
burgh was giving a phyisical examination for a
group out for football. When the good doctor came
to the eye test he said, "Now just read the top
line of that chart on the wall." Five of the athletes
answered, "What chart."

This column is far from a Column for the love-
lorn, but the following letter received recently de-
serves to be printed.
Dear Bud Bernard:
I am a co-ed here at the University. When
I was going home on a bus for my vacation,
I met a very nice boy from Hillsdale College.
He sat next to me all the way to my home
town, and when it got dark he became very
attentive to me. He put his arms around me
and kissed me three or four times and said
he loved me. I did not get a chance to tell him
whether I loved him, as I didn't go all the way
to his home town, but had to get off at Iron
City. What should I have done?
Maybe you'll meet him going home next
vacation. Then you'll be able to tell him that
you love him. I wish you luck.
Bud Bernard
