wholesale distribution of post office

Frank Murphy, governor-general of
the Philippines, had paved the way
for the patronage by harmonizing
some of the discordant elements in
the party.
George Burke of Ann Arbor, who
was among the party leaders aiding
Murphy in procuring Federal ap-
point mcnts for Michigan, readily ac-
.rOwledged the powerful influence
that Murphy had brought to bear on
the patronage situation while visiting
Washington in the interests of the
new Philippine commonwealth gov-
"I am coni.dent that complete har-
mony now prevails ini the party," said
Burke,'X "and Prank Murphy was un-
doubtedly the chief factor in bring-

successful conclusion."

ment insurance as an aid in keeping
poor students in school by securing
financial compensation for parents
during unemployment crises.
These are all the aims of the Na-
tional Student League chapter onf
the Michigan campus. The reader
will note that there is no mention of
politics, of Communism, of dictator-
ship, or of affiliation with a "subver-
sive"group which might be subsidiz-
ing it, However, those who say that
the N.S.L. here is "communistic" are
not entirely wrong.
For there are many Communists,
with a capital "C" or a small "c," in
the organization. Some of these are
"from the East," some-are not. There
are Socialists in the organization.
There are dissident radicals of all
types in the N.S.L. There are somea
who are not radicals. It has been
foumd impossible to statistically eval-
uate the political makeup of theI
League here. Certainly it could not

the League that the group is pre-

N.S.L. Governing Body
The N.S.L. is governed here by a
six-member executive committee.
They are, of course, pledged to carry
out the League's program to the best
of their ability. Of the six, three are
from Michigan (Ann Arbor, Detroit,
and Flint) and the others name as
their home states Alabama, New Jer-
sey, and New York.
The organization has a total of "ap-
proximately 45" paying members.
No one, as far as can be ascer-
tained, has ever produced a bit of evi-
dence that the organization is sub-
sidized by "agents" of Russia, or any
other "agents."
The N.S.L. "takes up" cases involv-
ing Ward, Strachey, student govern-
ment, and war because it sees, cor-
rectly or erroneously, that its five-
point program is involved.
These are the "facts" on the N.S.L.
chapter here, as correctly as they
can be obtained. It is for the campus
o draw its own conclusions.
