returned more ballots than any other of all the

peace poll -and this despite the fact that the
University is considerably smaller than a good
many of its rivals.
Perhaps the answer is that Michigan students
are interested in significant matters, but not in
the petty collegiateisms of another day. Per-
haps Michigan students are awaiting only devel-
opment of institutions adequate to stimulate and
express their real enthusiasms.
Were this found to be true, it would be a most

For The Flag
To the Editor:
I have read with considerable amusement the
remarkably well written letter from William L.
Fisch relative to militarism, the R.O.T.C., Fascism
and imperialistic war which appeared in your
issue of Jan. 26. Having served (in a mediocre
way) overseas in 1917-19, I agree with Mr. Fisch
that war as fought with our modern methods,
machinery, money and means is one of the worst
calamities that can fall to the lot of mankind.
But at this point my agreement ceases. Mr.
Fisch would abolish war by refusing to fight, by
lying down, supinely, belly-up, in the face of an
armed agression. Were all peoples, of all nations,
of such a temperament, it is obvious that there
would be no more wars because there would be
no more troops. Unhappily for mankind, but
fortunately for manhood, all men are not so con-
In short, Mr. Fisch bases his strategy upon a
set of facts that will never exist. Were America
to follow his plan with any degree of unanimity,
this country would be at the mercy of almost any
minor power that chose to annex us.
Theories are fine. Sophomores should be en-
couraged to have them. They are inspiring at
the time, but after disillusionment that comes
later, they have a way of seeming a wee bit puerile,
When I was overseas, Mr. Fisch was about two
years old. His knowledge of war (so he says)
was gained from motion pictures. It cannot be
as clear, as stark, as horrible as the sort of knowl-
edge that comes from seeing and experiencing.
No one hates war more than the person who has
been through it.
But now is a time to be practical. Every major
European power is armed to the teeth. Old
jealousies have been revived. War debts have
complicated matters. If one's potential enemies
are so foolish as to arm themselves so efficiently
and at such great expense, what would America
do? Discard her own arms? Get ready to turn
the other cheek? Only a dreamer would say
"Yes." The R.O.T.C., by providing a large num-
ber of well educated junior officers is fulfilling
a function of major importance. It commends
itself to virile young men who are constitutionally
and temperamentally averse to taking a licking
I believe that this nation is quite definitely com-
mitted to the policy of engaging in no more wars
save to defend our own borders. And should that
time come (which God forbid it may not!), when
an armed invader attacks us, Mr. Fisch and his
Student League will fade into the background of
forgotten theories as the manhood of this coun-
try rises to defend its flag.
"Flag?" Mr. Fisch may sneer.
"Yes, 'flag'," we repeat. Far better men than
Mr. Fisch or I have died for it before and will
gladly do so again.

When professors kiss co-eds outside of school,
that isn't news; it's scandal. But when they do
it openly in class - that is news.
A professor of psychology at Syracuse Univer-
sity suddenly bent over and kissed the beautiful
co-ed who sat at the front of the room. And
in spite of the fact that it was a psychology ex-
periment to prove that a sudden emotion can be
,measured by the perspiration on the hands-in
spite of that, the young lady had such a "sud-
den emotion" that it was several minutes before
the recording instrument regained its normal
composure enough to continue with the experi-
ment. Luckily for her, however, the instrument
does not record whether her emotions were pleas-
ant or unpleasant.
According to reports Huey Long is only
acting in self defense - professors are taking
over politics . . . so he'll run Louisiana State
The Daily Kansan comes to the fore with an
editorial scoring the "colossal inconsistency of
women." This same inconsistency says the
Kansan, is nowhere more apparent than in the
matter of dress. We quote: "on a frigid day one
sees scores of women dressed in fur coats. But
with these cozy garments they wear no hats,
and they fail to button the coats. Girls with
college intellect go without food to own a fur
coat. They attach this garment to the person
by means of the sleeves and let the rest bellow
out behind, a flag flaunted in the face on their
Stories about finals are again appearing.
This incident took place in a math class at
Corneri University about the week before fin-
als. The instructor walked into the room and
announced that he would give the class an
idea of the material they would be responsible
for on the final.
"You will have to know," he began, "all
the equations on page 10. Then, there are
several good problems from pages 15 to 35
which are good examples of the type I expect
to ask you. You might commit the formulas
on page 50 to your memory, and if you know
all these things and the basic principles of
the course, you should have no trouble with
the exam. Now are there any questions about

"Yes, what is it?" asked the instructor.

questioned, "What text book are we using in

QUITE SOME TIME AGO The Daily
called attention to the fact that
Huey P. Long, oaf of the canebreaker, was a man
to match in American public life. "It is high
time that the intelligent section of the American
people took Huey Long for the very real threat to
American traditions and ideals that he really is,"
we said on that occasion.
Since then Huey has gone on his unrestrained
way; he has'made himself dictator of Louisiana;
he has uncovered a plot against his life and thus
squashed an anti-Long uprising; he was amazingly
effective in arousing opinion against the World
Court in the recent Senate vote; he has organized
his campaign forthe 1936, and more likely the
1940, bid fo the presidency by establishing
"Share-The-Wealth" Clubs throughout the nation.
Everything that Huey does these days is done
with the White House in mind. His belated
"honeymoon" was a play for the love-and-kisses
vote. "Love Is Sweeping the Country" sang the
presidential candidate in "Of Thee I Sing." Huey
took the satire and enacted it into life. After
his fiasco in the washroom of the Sand's Point
Yacht Club he gave up drinking and today is a
teetotaler, completely and blatantly. That ought
to be good for the hintherland vote.
Huey may not have what it takes to make a
great statesman; in fact he hasn't. But he cer-
tainly has what it takes to make a genuine bid
for the presidency during a time of economic
distress. "He (Long)" says Paul Y. Anderson, "is
a tough baby, a very tough baby. It will pay to
It will also pay to stop him.

WASHINGTON, February 12
THE LATEST Democratic National Committee
output is an attractively-typed little affair on
blue paper headed "Thumbnail Sketches of Wom-
men You Hear About in The New Deal." It con-
tains about 50 names and it certainly emphasizes
the Roosevelt administration flair for giving the
ladies a.place in the political sunlight.
The women's division of the national committee
got out the who's who and who's what of the wom-
en of the "New Deal." Its subjects range from
Madam Secretary Perkins, Madam Senator Cara-
way and Her Honor, Judge Florence E. Allen of
the United States Circuit Court of Appeals -
"just one step below the Supreme Court of the
United States," as the committee commentator
puts it, down through a wide range of big city
postmistresses, women collectors of the port, state
administrators of relief, housing and many other
"New Deal" alphabetical activities.
WHAT is coming, one might suppose, is a drive
in '36 for the feminine vote on the basis of
the Roosevelt administration's record of femin-
ine appointees. The worried republicans may be
planning new voter and "young Republican" ap-
peals but genial Jim Farley's Democratic organi-
zation already is well advanced on a program
of enticing the ladies to the polls next time the
"New Deal" goes to the election bat which the
out-of-power party cannot hope to match.
Throughout the thumbnail sketches runs the
notation that this or that woman was "first" to
pick off for her sex the particular political plum
involved. Until you see it in black and white-
or rather in the attractive two shades of blue used
-it is hard to realize just how far the Roose-
velt administration has been going in drawing
women into party and official life. There are so
many appointments of women "for the first time
in history" that the sketch writer is moved to
remark that it is "a phrase which President Roose-
velt is rapidly making hackneyed."
CASUAL SURVEY of the party activity back-
grounds of the women named suggests an-
other possible title. It could read "Party Politics
Pays, Ladies." With rare exceptions the femin-
ine "New Deal" office-holders attained their pres-
ent proud status by service on the national com-
mittee, on state committees or as delegates to
national conventions, particularly the '32 conven-
tion that put Mr. Roosevelt in the White House.
The ladies have had a special place at the "New
Deal" patronage pie counter.
Madam Secretary Perkins is one of those ex-
ceptions. Her sketch records no party worker
activity at all. And another is the only woman
