The University-Alumni ,M
Relationship urned Aboutj
sity and its alumni have always beend
of the closest sort. This has been particularly true
since the presidency of James B. Angell, who de-
clared that "in a very just sense and in a. very
large degree the fortunes of the University are com-
mitted" to the hands of the alumni. It was under
his administration that the Michigan Alumnus was;
founded. '
As President Angell evidently foresaw, this recog-
nition of the University's interest in its alumni
body has resulted in constantly greater benefits
to the school. Probably no other state university
can claim so loyal a group of graduates nor point
to such a generous endowment on the part of that]
The benefits accruing to the University throughr
this connection have been rather apparent during
recent years, both in such gifts as buildings, scho-
larships, and endowment funds, and in a steady
loyalty that has made Michigan men famous for]
their staunchness and has sent many young men
and women from all parts of the country to study;
What the alumni have gaind in return, aside
from strong local organizations the country over,

and close contact with doings in Ann Arbor, has
not been so obvious. In this light, it is interesting
to note that a survey is now under way to gain
statistical data on present activities of recent grad-
uates of the University.
Originally projected to include only graduates
who had received teachers' certificates in the last
five years, the study has been extended to cover
all who have received degrees of any kind over a
period of two years. While the questionnaire covers
a wide range of material, the question of employ-
ment, of course, looms largest. Beyond the mere
fact. of employment the University is =anxious to
determine the type of work, average pay, and how
present positions were obtained. Ultimately author-
ities hope to gain an idea as to what the University
may do to help alumni who are not satisfactorily
placed at present and what it may do specifically
to improve its curricula and organization in the
light of alumni criticism in order to offer a more

To the Editor:
I don't consider myself a poor sport in expressing
my disappointment over the fact that Willis Ward
was not elected captain of Michigan's 1935 track
team. It would be supererogatory to state the
claims he had to that honor. It is well known that
Ward has been Michigan's outstanding track man
for the past two years; in fact, he has been the
outstanding man in the conference. In addition, he
has contributed his bit in football. Nor do I sup-
pose there is anything about his academic record
which would disqualify him for the position. He,
has been a conscientious athlete, a modest, gentle-
manly and intelligent student. In the light of these
facts, an observer must conclude that Willis Ward
lost the captaincy of the track team because he is
a Negro.
Michigan track-men would not have been violat-
ing any precedent had they chosen Ward captain
of their team. Ralph Metcalfe has been captain
of Marquette's team the past year. At Columbia,
Chicago, Illinois, Amherst (and several other
schools above the Bible belt) Negroes have been
elected captains of various sports. Willis Ward de-
served a similar gesture of fair play from his fellow
Michiganders. That he wasn't given it can be at-
tributed to our narrow, provincial prejudice.
Isn't "Murmuring Michigan" yet big enough to
elect a man like Ward captain of its track team?
Or is the murmur after all nothing but a silly
giggle g-eC. A. Blue, Grad.
To the Editor.:
The most prominent clergyman in New York
City, Reverend Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, ex-
pressed himself recently on the greatest of all
crimes: war. This is what he said: "I renounce war
because of what it does to our men. I've seen it.
I renounce it because of what it forces us to do
to the enemy. I renounce and will not sanction
it because of its consequences and the undying
hatred it nourishes. I renounce it and never again
will I be in another war.
"I stimulated raiding parties to their murderous
tasks. Do you see why I want to make it personal?
I lied to the Unknown Soldier about a possible good
consequence of the war. There are times I don't
want to believe in immortality -the times I want
to think that the Unknown Soldier never can
r'ealize how fruitless was his effort. The support I
gave to war is a deep condemnation upon my
soul .. .
"The noblest qualities of human life, which
could make earth a heaven, make it, in war, a hell.
Men cannot have Christ and war at the same
time. I renounce war."
In this connection it is worth recalling that a
large number of articles and books on the subject
of armament and munitions manufacture have re-
cently been published both in Europe and the
United States. These writings contain the same
story: Iron, Blood, Profits.
Let it be remembered that the manufacture of
arms and munitions differs in nowise from busi-
ness in general as practiced in the capitalist sys-
tem: patriotism plays no part in it. It is purely a
matter of profits. What the books and articles men-
tioned have accomplished is to call attention to the
serious problem threatening civilization. The sug-
gestion has been made that the only way to turn
men away from war is through teaching by the
press and the radio. To which I would add that
such teaching should also be done in the schools
and universities. Why not give a lecture a week in
all schools on the beauty and humanity of peace
and the horror and savagery of war?
What nobler task could the press, the radio and
the schools perform than to help save civilization!
-M Levi, Professor-Emeritus.
To the Editor:
I am at work on a biographical and critical study
of William Ellery Leonard and his work, and
am eager to communicate with anyone who has
known or is now in touch with him, whether as

friend or enemy, student or colleague, or through
any other relationship; 'and with anyone who can
tell me of others who may have pertinent informa-
tion concerning him. I should be grateful for an
opportunity to see letters written by Mr. Leonard;
they will be speedily copied and returned.
To save Mr. Leonard the trouble of replying to
any anxious but unnecessary letters of inquiry re-
garding my undertaking, let me add that I am a
former student of his and that I proceed with his
full permission.

Maurice Leblanc might well have written "Twin
Husbands" as "Further Adventures of Arsene Lu-
pin." Though the author was not Leblanc and the
gentleman burglar was The Sparrow instead of
Arsene Lupin "Twin Husbands" is a suave and
clever comedy.
John Miljan as The Sparrow turns in an excel-
lent performance and the supporting cast does a bit
more than stand around with their hands in their
respective pockets.
The story revolves about a plot involving a
gentleman burglar that is kidnapped by a plotting
wife and secrtary to impersonate the lady's hus-
band. The idea being to obtain some bonds from
the trustee of the absent husband. When The
Sparrow gets ideas of his own about the bonds and
the lady the show becomes smart and amusing.

This is very boring containing all manner of
outmoded characters and devices. Bootleggers have
looked rather drab on the screen since December
of 1933.
However, an above average news reel accom-
panies the program and it is worth being bored
for an hour to watch John Miljan in "Twin Hus-
bands." -J.J.F.
As Others See It
The news that Rep. Francis Henry Shoemaker
(Farmer-Labor), of Minnesota, is afoul of the law
again is received with practically nqsurprise what-
ever. It has happened so often in the year and two
months of his congressional service that repetition
begins to make him slightly monotonous.
At the outset of his Washington career he did
violence to a hotel room neighbor whose radio dis-
turbed his slumbers. Disturbed on another occa-
sion by the racket of street car track repairers,
he descended to the street in pajamas and hurled
red lanterns in token of protest. More recently a
taxi driver incurred his displeasure and was ad-
monished with a stiff right to the chin.
Against such a background his present exploit,
which was no more than strolling through a group
of Minneapolis teamsters and policemen with
a broomstick in his fist, barely merits attention.
If Shoemaker's purpose is to achieve a publicity
build-up for his coming senatorial race against
Senator Henrik Shipstead, our advice is to stay out
of police stations until primary day. So long a
period of peace in the Shoemaker saga would be
page-one news throughout Minnesota.

Here's a poem coming from a contributor:
If gents could read
What co-eds thought
There'd be more dating
Than there ought!
Laboratory instructors at Texas Christian Col-
lege have preserved their alcohol supply from
school pilfering for the last 20 years by placing
snakes in the containers. The reptiles have been
christened "Bishop Cannon" and "Bishop Wilson."
We offer a hero medal to a student at the
University of Illinois who looked beyond the
Kappa prospects and used their own phone to
get himself a date at the Alpha Phi house.
A fellow at Northwestern University is call-
ing his co-ed friend "Pilgrim" because every
time he calls he makes a little progress.
According to a survey conducted at Lehigh Uni-
versity, it was disclosed that 25 years after gradua-
tion Phi Beta Kappa men still lead other members
of their class. The best record has been made by
those men who were called "dreamers," and the
"freaks" ran a close second.
