The Series
Was lonest.
C UB FANS may be disappointed in
the outcome of the World Series,
but almost all of them will share the satisfaction
of Tiger partisans with one aspect of yesterday's
battle. Rumors and suppositions to the effect
that the Series was "fixed" to go seven games, to,

the consequent profit of club owners, were spiked
with Goslin's game-winning hit.
Baseball has largely overcome the stigma of the
dishonest Black Sox Series of 1919. Neverthe-
less, despite the game's scrupulous honesty since
that time, there are those who will persist in
imagining the same evil influences at work every
year.
An examination of World Series results will show
that there is little basis for the belief that club-
owners will "fix" a series to go seven games. In
fact, quite as many are over in four games as in
seven. The Yankees made a clean sweep in 1927,
1928, and 1932, for example. It is inevitable that
at times, on the other hand, two teams will be so
evenly matched that they will battle to the limit
of seven games.
When this occurs, fans should be gratified with
a fine, closely fought exhibition. of baseball, rather
than interpreting it as a struggle of false thrills,
designed for the financial benefit of unscrupulous
owners. This unfounded interpretation is most
unfair -to players and owners whose records every-
where show a sincere regard for baseball's best
interests.
Italy's
Defensive.War.. .
DISCUSSIONS of the Italo-Ethiopian
conflict, whether held at the fra-
ternity's dinner table or over your milk shakes
at"a State Street store, appear to center for the
most part in violent verbal attacks on the person
of Signor Mussolini, which is tantamount to saying
that the true issues are seldom mentioned.

is ample excuse for hammering away at a "mere
personality."
However, the true background of the Italo-
Ethiopian war goes back far beyond the Italian
ruler.
It is the narrow, strictured, militarized economy
which Italy has sunk into in the last 13 years -
that has caused her present plight. And indeed
it is a plight.
The war with Ethiopia was "necessary" not be-
cause the ambitions of a fascist dictator had to be
satiated in the manner of ancient Rome, but be-
cause the foundations of the Italian society of
today are such that war is as inevitable as the rise
of the sun tomorrow.
Briefly here are the foundations:
Italy in 1922 was a pauperized and gangsterized
state, enslaved by the war and its aftermath.
There was danger of anarchy. Revolt had
brewed in the factories and on the farms.
Her hopes for material gain from the war had
been washed away, leaving her with a crimson,
angered face and a chip on her shoulder.
It is always the case that there is a man with a
solution for every crisis. Mussolini stepped into
the picture at this time, with his solution. With-
out the proper crisis Mussolini would today be a
rank-and-file Socialist journalist.
Recently, economics started to catch up with
Italy. The Italian commoner began to learn the
truly desperate lot that was his. American papers
had alert young men corresponding for them
from Rome, and began to tell the outside world
the truth. So they were expelled from this Fascist
land.
Then there came a "border incident" between
the Italians and the Ethiopians. The profiteering
interests who, with Il Duce, rule Italy discovered
that Ethiopia had, to put it 'slangily, "plenty of
what it takes a lot of." Geologists in Ethiopia
reported gold, silver, copper, petroleum, etc. A war
with Ethiopia would divert attention from the
organized chaos at home, reasoned the rulers of
Italy, and if the people were to grumble at mobili-
zation for battle with a supine nation, they would
never hear of it - at any rate through the Italian
press."
And so the transports bore Italy's legions on-
ward to the goal. As you know, Italy is now "val-
iantly fighting a defensive police patrol war."

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
Publication in the Bulletin is constructive notice to all members of the
University. Copy received at the office of the Assistant to the President
until 3:30: 11:00 a.m. on Saturday.

By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.
WITH the figures - and even more important
perhaps - the policy declarations of the bud-
get "summation" in mind, President Roosevelt
must have been strongly tempted to put that par-
ticular announcement into one of the set speeches
of his western trip. That he did not do so, but
permitted the budgetary statement to come out,
from Washington, can be traced to two possible
reasons.
One is Mr. Roosevelt's dislike for loading any
speech with statistics. Examination of his presi-
dential utterances and gubernatorial addresses
shows them strikingly free of the dull stuff of
figures. Without the massed and tabulated fig-
ures from the budget bureau upon which his ex-
pectation of cutting sharply next year into the
spread between government income and outgo
without increasing taxes is based, the declaration
of that purpose might have been dismissed as a
pre-campaign gesture.
THE OTHER REASON well might be that com-
ing as it did, the budgetary communication
documented in striking fashion the business
"breathing spell" which Mr. Roosevelt so sharply
stressed in his western speeches. That its issu-
ance was carefully timed to that end cannot be
doubted.
Just how fully the President followed through
on the "breathing spell" letter became more sig-
nificant as the text of each speech on his westward
journey became available.
In his Fremont, Neb., address, Mr. Roosevelt
dealt with the farm policy of his administration
in simple terms. It remained for his budgetary
announcement from Washington to bring out a
more significant aspect of that, in view of the
much-heralded "constitutional" issue.
THE ALLURING PICTURE of paying off the
public debt cost of New Deal depression relief
policies without boosting taxes is based, the bud-
getary communication said, on continued col-
lection of AAA processing taxes to meet farm
bill outlays. If those taxes fall in the courts, it
was added, "we will have to face the problem
of financing existing contracts out of some form
of new taxes."
Here is another evidence of the conciliatory
mood in which the President undertook his west-
ern trip. There was no suggestion, although his
remarks in no case closed the door to such action
about seeking to change the constitution in the
event of legal overthrow of AAA. And on the
heels of that came "Big Jim" Farley's national
hook-up radio address more or less dismissing
the constitutional amendment idea as a G.O.P.
campaign scarecrow.
The President's talk at Boulder Dam reiterated
his "yardstick" power theory; but carefully re-
frained from. rubbing salt in sores left by the
utility holding company death sentence fight.

AT THE MAJESTIC
"THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1936"
SPLUS
A Paramount picture starring Bing Crosby,
Jack Oakie, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Lyda
Roberti, Wendy Barrie, Henry Wadsworth, Amos 'n
Andy, Ethel Merman, Ray Noble and His Band,
Ina Ray Hutton and her Melodears, Mary Boland,
Charley Ruggles, Bill Robinson, the Vienna boys
choir, ir Guy Standing, Gail Patrick, and David
Holt.
This picture merits three stars plus because
for pure entertainment value it will be a long
time before anything approaches it. It is neces-
sarily loosely connected and completely prepos-
terous, but that's what makes it good - we went to
laugh and only stopped once during the entire
picture.
Jack Oakie and Henry Wadsworth together
make up a radio personality known as the Lochin-
var of the air, bringing ethereal romance into the
hearts of "a million lonely ladies." Burns and
Allen appear with a "magic eye" that picks up.
anything happening anywhere in the world
whether it is being broadcast or not, and also
broadcasts. The eye proves to be just what
station WHY needed, for Spud and Smiley (Oakie
and Wadsworth) are in line to lose the station
unless they raise a lot of money in a hurry, and
they hope to do it by winning an international
broadcast contest.
(Isobel) Lyda Roberti, a wealthy countess from
the Isle of Clementine, has come to America be-
cause she is in love with Lochinvar, but when
she finds he is really two people she kidnaps them
both and takes them back to her island in order
to have time to choose between them. A lot of
dime novel villainy comes in here because of the
jealousy of Gordoni (C. Henry Gordon) but all's
well in the end and the boys win the contest and a
girl apiece, Sue (Wendy Barrie) being the sec-
ond. Their triumph over the heartless Gordoni
is aided by the timely arrival of the U. S. Marines,
brought to the rescue by Burns and Allen. And
the contest is won by Spud because he has been
broadcasting their plight and the judges took it all
in as a regular staged presentation.
There are so many highlights that it's hard
to pick out the best, but high honors must cer-
tainly go to youngster David Holt for perfect
acting in the only serious part of the picture. This
skit, coming in the center of the picture, fol-
lows an hilarious scene and its excellence is shown
by the silence that it brought on; a dropped pin
would have sounded like a shot at this time.
Lyda Roberti deserves praise for all her work,
but especially for her singing of "Double Trouble."
Two unidentified colored boys are assistants in
Station WHY and the younger sings and dances
in a way that should raise him to the heights.
Burns and Allen are crazier, and also funnier, than
ever: Henry Wadsworth sings and acts equally
well; Mary Boland and Charley Ruggles con-
tribute a skit that is a world-beater; and Bill
Robinson, "the world's greatest tap dacer," shows
why he deserves the title.
Don't miss it, for it's the comedy and enter-
tainment highlight of the season.

A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture starring Wal-

4th Centennial
Heralds New
Bible Edition
Waternan Is Assistant
Editor Of Modernized
American Version
"The Bible, an American Transla-
tion" is the latest English translation
of the Bible and was heralded on the
four hundredth anniversary'of the
Coverdale Bible, the first translation,
Saturday. Four professors, one of the
University of Michigan, are the auth-
ors of this translation. They are
Prof. Leroy Waterman of the oriental
languages department, Prof. Theo-
phile J. Meek of the University of
Toronto, Prof. J. M. Fowis Smith of
the University of Chicago, and Prof.
Alex R. Gordon of McGill University.
"This is the first time," Professor
Waterman stated, "that the work of
translating the Bible has been divided
intb sections, and the portions given
to ones who are specialists in those
respective divisions of the Bible. To
be sure, former translations were
made by churchmen and biblical
scholars, but never before has the
work been done by men who have
concentrated their studies on certain
parts of the Bible."
Interpreted From Hebrew
Different from many English trans-
lations which are translations or re-
visions of other Anglican scriptures,
this one is completely interpreted
from the Hebrew.
Professor Waterman has translated
I and II Samuel, I and n Kings, I
and II Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemah,
and Esther, all found in the second
part of the Old Testament.
In addition to actual differences in
content of some of the passages of
this Bible as compared to earlier En-
glish translations, there is a slight
modernization of the language used.
Fqr "thou" is "you," for "cometh"
and "goeth" are "come" and "go," re-
spectively. This is true in all pas-
sages except those addressed directly
to the deity.
In answer to a question as to the
reason for doing this, Professor Wa-
terman replied, "Since forms like
"thou" and "thy" are not present in
our language today, there is no real
reason why they must remain in the
Bible. We have made an endeavor to
write this translation in the dignified,
twentieth century English."
3 Stages Used
In discussing the book, Professor
Waterman said there have been three
stages in the finishing of this latest
translation into the English. The
first edition came out in 197, after
several years of work on the pa of
the translators. This was not a com-
plete Bible and contained only the
Old Testament, edited by Professor
Smith. In 1931 it was combined with
a new translation of the New Testa-
ment by Edgar J. Goodspeed; also of
the University of Chicago. By using
a different kind of 'paper, this com-
plete Bible was less bulky than the
first book had been; containing only
the Old Testament.
Use Of Library
Is Explained l~
New Desk book
Professors Edward S. Everett,
George D. Helm and Philip L. Schenk
of the English Department, have edit-
ed the second edition of the Michigan
Deskbook of English Composition
which is being used in all sections of
English I.

Several features are found in this
1935 edition which were not included
in the book which was used last year.
Probably the most important of the
new sections is the one which deals
with the use of the library. Ex-
planations of all the abbreviations
and terms on the cards in the card
index are given. Information is also
included which informs the- student
as to how he may find the desired
material. Some space is also given
over to the cause of explaining the
ways of using material~ after At is
found.
A complete index and new sections
on the paragraph and the sentence
are also included. Another new fea-
ture is the discussion of figures of
speech.
The new edition of the Michigan
Deskbook of English Composition is
almost three times as large as it was
last year,

A Teacher's Time
(From The Cornell Sun)
SAY WHAT YOU WILL, the life of a professor
is no soft snap. If students have the idea
that they have teachers who spend their 12 or
14 hours a week in class and rest and play golf
the remainder of the time, they should read the
article of Merlin H. Hunter ,professor of economics,
in the most recent issue of the Christian Science
Monitor's magazine section.
Prof. Hunter certainly puts forth a strong case
for his profession. After reading his good-
humored description of the hours spent in student
conferences, special lectures, preparation for the
same classes for which the students have to pre-
pare and a million and one other little things the
question isn't what a teacher does in his spare
time, but rather, when he manages to eat and
sleep.
Perhaps the student might stop and think be-
fore he wastes the time of the professor with
stupid questions - but he probably won't and the
teachers probably wouldn't know what to do if
he did.
Questions are the glory and the horror of a
teacher's life.
Blow, Gabriel, Blow
(From The Daily Pennsylvanian)
EVEN the storks carrying the news of blessed
events will have to muffle their wings, if New
York's Mayor LaGuardia has his way with night
noises in America's largest city. No more auto-
mobile horns, no more cutouts on college boys'
roadsters, no more radios, and worst of all, no more
Harlem yodeling. For New York is now in the
throes of the greatest anti-noise campaign this
side of London.
The worst part of it all will not be quieting
down the noisemakers, but acclimating the dwell-
ers on Manhattan to their new surroundings. Af-
ter having fallen to sleep each night to a symph-
ony of rattling cars and horn and clashing gears
it will probably be a long, long time before reverie
finally comes without the nightly lullaby.
ing him only after the mother has died in a trapeze
accident. The rest of the story concerns Beery's
attempt to win back the affection of the boy, who
hates him because he believes he is responsible for
the mother's death. Through the inspiration
which the eventual reconciliation brings Beery is
able to return to his position as an animal trainer.
