For instance we shall take a recent incident
occuring in Italy. A young American, heir to
vast millions, had to have his fun. Therefore,
in the midst of a crowd of war-crazed Italians
he began to cheer Ethiopia. This mad young man
was deported to' the United States where such
capriciousness is tolerated.
A further illustration occurred also with inter-
national complications. It so happened that two
momentous events were to be transmitted at the
same time over the air with national hook-ups by
the two major networks, Mussolini's speech and
the World's Series. The all-important address
received precedence only because of the fact that
it occurred slightly earlier. However, in the
middle of Il Duce's long-awaited speech the net-
works switched to the World's Series. Only one
of these networks gave a synopsis of Mussolini's
address.
Numerous other incidents such as how a heavy-
weight champion laughed away his title can
illustrate the foregoing statement.
It would seem that common sense alone would
temper American judgment, but who ever said
that Americans had common sense?

G OVERNOR MARTIN L. DAVEY of
Ohio put his state university in an
embarrassing position when he accused 14 Buck-
eyes of being on the state payroll and said, "We
recognize the fact that football has become the
supreme purpose of higher education. We cer-
tainly have done our part, because we have
most of the football squad on the state payroll,
and we are exceedingly anxious for a successful
season."
Governor Davey's remark was precipitated by.
the retorts of university officials when they learned
that their budget was to be cut. Querulously they
pleaded about "having to close the university,
Which would force abandonment of the football
schedule, two games of which, Illinois and Notre'
Dame, are sellouts now."
Perhaps Ohio State is finding jobs for her play-
ers in a legitimate fashion, and perhaps the play-
ers actually work a reasonable length of time
for their salaries. We do not know about that,
but 'we do regret the university's attitude toward'
a lower bldget - that they may have to close
the university, and that, mind you, would necessi-
tate cancelling two football games which are
sellouts!
We have a suggestion to help Ohio in her
desperate plight. You undoubtedly have a good
many students who aren't athletes. Perhaps they
attend classes regularly, maybe even get fairly

decent averages, but still you must remember they
do not add to Ohio's traditional glory on the ath-
letic field.
Now you just expell these students. Then you
can fire a good share of your faculty, either
sell or rent all but two or three of the university
buildings (but be sure and save your field house
and your football field), and then you will have
hone but athletes in your school.
If our figures are correct, you will have slightly
more than $5,000,000 for administering the uni-
versity this year. With that each athlete could
be well cared for, and you would get the best in

AT THE MAJESTIC
"HERE COMES THE BAND"
A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture with Ted Lewis
and his orchestra, Virginia Bruce, Ted Healy, Nat
Penileton, Harry Stockwell, Donald Cook, andSpanky
McFarland.
A story that must have been thrown together in
some sort of-a speed contest furnishes the back-
ground for Ted Lewis and his band on the screen.
It has the fault that characterizes so many films
of this type in that it is written around. a char-
acter.
It's amusing enough at times, however, and
Lewis, Virginia Bruce, and Harry Stockwell do
the musical honors well. The latter sings a num-
ber of songs, including "Headin' Home," "Roll
Along Prairie Moon," and "Tender is the Night."
Of then all we preferred the latter, which is
also sung by Miss Bruce. Ted Healy and Nat
Pendleton furnish the comedy in their typically
pleasing manner.
The story concerns the song-writing ventures
of Stockwell. He writes a hit that is stolen
by a very bad man and the rest of the time is
devoted to his efforts toward reclaiming it, to the
tune of $50,000 damages. Interspersed among
this are some pretty poses by Margaret (Miss
Bruce), a grand ball, a few dances by Ted Lewis
and chorus girlies, some war scenes, a lot of shots
of taxi-cabs and a scene in court which is a bit
trying.
Of all the above, the war scenes seemed to have
the least place in the show and must have been
tossed in just to fill that hiatus.
We enjoyed Healy and Pendleton throughout;
Spanky McFarland is amusing; Ted Lewis is par-
ticularly good in his resurrection of a number of
songs of long ago; Harry Stockwell has a fine
voice; Miss Bruce is as appealing as ever; and
Donald Cook carries his small part well. In view
of this, we can ascribe the picture's failure to
click to story trouble.
In the surrounding program a sportlight brings
a Florida "Tarzan" to the screen who spends his
time chasing snakes and turtles around under
water, or trapping alligators. Popeye in "You
Gotta Be a Football Hero" is very good.

AT THE MICHIGAN
"SHE MARRIED HER BOSS"
A Columbia picture starring Claudette Colbert,
with Melvyn Douglas, Michael Bartlett, Edith Fel-
lows,Jean Dixon, Katherine Alexander, and Clara
Kimball Young.
Hailed as the successor to "It Happened One
Night," the current attraction at the Michigan is
really an outstanding picture, with a fine story,
fine acting, and very superior dialogue. It's pretty
hard to say that any one character outshines
the rest by a great deal, but we personally feel
that little Annabel (Edith Fellows), in her role
as the daughter of Richard Barclay (Melvyn
Douglas), stole the show.
This impression is aided a great deal by the ex-
cellence of her lines, but she is certainly not lack-
ing in acting ability. Nor are any of the other
principals - Miss Colbert, as Julia Scott, gives an-
other of her fine performances that have come to
be traditional.
Julia, employed as executive secretary to Rich-
ard, who heads a large department store organi-
zation, actually runs the entire business. Richard
is single after an unhappy marriage and besides
his daughter has his sister in his home, doing a
very poor job of running things.
Since Julia has been in love with Richard for
years she manages to get him to take her to his
home after office hours to complete some work,
and while there demonstrates her ability anew
by rapidly straightening out a few domestic
tangles. Richard is so impressed that he proposes
to her, on a business-like basis, and she takes
over the management of the home. Several
tangles result during the time that he is finding
he is really in love with her, and the ending is
great.
In between times Julia is courted by Michael

Bartlett, a playboy business man who is selling out
to Richard. His part, although small, is very

By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Oct. 14.
MUCH of the Republican confidence of a come-
back politically next year rests on a wider
basis than merely return of disgruntled Repub-
lican voters to the party fold. However hopefully
Republican campaign planners view the outcome
of Rhode Island's congressional by-election, it is
to cleavages of both the right and the left in
Democratic ranks against Roosevelt "middle-of-
the-roadism" that they actually look in expecting
to do more than recover the additional ground
lost in '34 in both Senate and House.
Combine a direct Republican backswing, such as
suggested by the Rhode Island election, a left-
wing third party movement, and a possible anti-
Roosevelt alliance of conservative Democrats with
a conservative Republican ticket in '36, and you
can build up a case. You can even "dope" out of it
the election of a conservative Republican successor
to Mr. Roosevelt, although possibly by a minority,
not a majority vote.
* * * *
DOPE of that sort ignores several factors, how-
ever. One of them is the ingrained habit in
the south, whence come the most vigorous Dem-
ocratic conservative Senate opponents of Roose-
velt policies, of sticking to the party label. Re-
move such notable figures as Senator Glass and
Byrd of Virginia from the fond Republican pic-
ture of an important right-wing party split against
the President, and what is left of it?
Where will Glass and Byrd be in '36, assuming
Mr. Roosevelt's nomination, which certainly is no
forced assumption? They will be for him, perhaps
not enthusiastically, but for him nevertheless.
There is authentic testimony as to that, testimony
of the men themselves.
There is better than that to indicate '36 prob-
abilities, however.
* * * *
ANSWERING specifically suggestions that the
two Virginians might by some strange change
in their lifelong political habits come to join an
anti-Roosevelt conservative Democratic swing to a
conservative Republican ticket, Mr. Glass said:
"Neither Senator Byrd nor I have ever bolted a'
party nomination, local, state or national."
Looking into what became politically of "gold"
Democrats in the south who bolted the party in
1896, and also what has become of the '28 south-
ern bolters against the Al Smith-Joe Robinson
ticket, it is evident that party bolting is a very
high crime in the southern democracy.
Here's another slant. What is going to happen
in the Republican party when a showdown comes
on the difference of opinion within the party now
symbolized by the Hoover and Borah rival nomina-
tion booms? True, neither may be actually
seeking or expecting to be nominated. But if the
views of either dominate the ticket and platform,
what will the defeated wing do?

Detroit Officer
Charged With
Shooting Lady
Patrolman Reilly Wounds
Mrs. Mabel Stevens As
Climax To Argument
DETROIT, Oct. 14. - (A) - Patrol-
man Thomas M. Reilly, 36, who was
described by Inspector Gustave G.
Schink as "too drunk to answer ques-
tions," shot and seriously wounded
Mrs. Mabel Stevens, 39, early today.
Reilly was held on a charge of as-
sault with intent to do great bodily
harm. Mrs. Stevens was taken to a
hospital with a bullet wound above
the heart.
Charles M. Snead, manager of an
apartment house, said a tenant
aroused him at 1 a.m., and told him
a man was threatening a woman
with a gun in a third floor apartment.
"When I got upstairs there was a
man in plain clothes standing in the
doorway of the apartment and waiv-
ing a gun around," Snead said. "In-
side was a woman, begging him not
to harm her. Both of them were
strangers to me. The man turned
the gun on me and said 'get away or
I'll blow your head off.' I ran down-
stairs and called police. Just as they
arrived, I heard four shots upstairs
and then went up and found them."
John C. Ray, assistant prosecutor,
said Reilly told him he had been given
the key to the apartment by Patrol-
man Lawrence Farnsworth, that he
and Mrs. Stevens went there and be-
gan drinking beer. An argument over
Communism followed, he said.

As Others See I E
Child Labor - Socialism
(From the Brown Daily Herald)
THE DAUGHTERS of American Revolution-ism
met in solemn conclave in New York City this
week for a state conference. At this meeting the
chairman of the "national defense" committee of
the D.A.R. addressed the members on the Federal
Constitution.
Referring to the Constitution of the United
States as "the most perfect document yet devised,"
she pled with her fellow D.A.R.'s not to tolerate
any changes in the Constitution's provisions.
She spoke especially against the amendment
which proposes to abolish child labor in this coun-
try. She said that this amendment is a measure
intended to remove from children the "God-given
right to work when and where they please instead
of pauperizing them by making them government
charges as they are in Russia."
It is possible to smile away most of the D.A.R.'s
inanities, but sometimes their plans for this coun-
try are too dangerous to be passed over lightly. It
is one of the ironies of history that an organization
which boasts of descendants from the founders of
this nation should have descended so far. This
country was founded on a supposed basis of
intelligent tolerance and foresight. In the con-
stitution provision was made for amendment be-
cause of the recognized inability of any group of
men to foresee every contingency. The right of
amendment was recognized as an important one
and was used ten times within the lifetime of the
actual signers and framers of the constitution.
Under such circumstances, it is difficult to see
why any organization which takes pride in the
name of the Revolutionary War should frown upon
any progressive step as revolutionary and radical.
And it is even more difficult to see how any band
of people who call themselves patriots and lovers'
of liberty can take such an attitude toward a
measure which is planned for the purpose of free-
ing the forty-five million children under eighteen
years of age from the necessity of work. Condi-
tions in most parts of the country have improved
in regard to child labor, due to the widespread
campaign some years ago. However, there is no
legal restraint against such practices.
At this very moment in some parts of the United
States there are children under eighteen working
under conditions which would not be healthful,
scarcely livable, for mature people. Such condi-
tions breed a discontent with government and an
inability to live a wholesome, natural life which
represents a far greater evil than any fantastic

T'ellYears Ago
From The Daily Files
Of Oct. 12, 1925

Alumnae of the University innovat-
ed "Vanishing Parties," similar to our
"send-a-dime chains," to raise mon-
ey for the University League Build-
ing. Here's the way the system
worked: One lady would ask no more
than 7 other laides5to lunch. Each
would contribute 50 cents to the
League fund. Each ofthese guests
would give parties, asking one less
guest, and each giving 50 cents a
piece, and so on until only one
guest was asked. The "Vanishing
Party," if carried to completion,
would net $6,000.
Two University students, Robert
Bartlett and Charles Lewis, doned
