NIGHT EDITOR: BERNARD WEISSMAN
RemeniBering A
"Great American..
ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO yes-
terday was boin one of the great-
est of American writers.
By the sheer force of wit driving home the fruit
of a keen power of human and social observation,
NMark Twain made for himself and for American
getters a position of respect in European circles.
only Wa hington Irving preceded him as an Amer-
ican author winning international recognition.
Like Dean Swift, the surface interest in his
Stories is often so great that his reader may be
;excused for overlooking a shrewd observation of
Mississippi culture, if not that of all America.
Tales of his nimble wit make delightful retelling.
We have all heard of his note of remonstrance to
the careless editor that "the report of my death
was considerably exaggerated," and of the time
,when, scolded by his wife for appearing in the
presence of a noted diplomat without collar and
tie, he contritely sent around the next day to the
offended diplomat by messenger a package con-
taining a collar and a tie.

Recent biographers of Twain are tending to
reveal certain aspects of his character that were
overlooked by early fame-blinded biographers.
His temper, and certain of his ideals are not al-
ways consistent with the high level of much of his
work. ,But his greatness is not to be denied, nor
has his wit been surpassed since his death.
Why Change
Women'sHours ..
TiHE 19 SORORITIES that voted
against a change in women's hours
are to be congratulated and supported.
It would work no great harm to change the Fri-
day night permission from 1:30 to 12:30 a.m., but
on the other hand, it is difficult to see the evil
din the present permission time. Reasons advanced
for the proposed change were compulsory Satur-
day classes, but it seems rather obvious that if
any woman wishes to go home early on Friday

T HE MORALS of Detroit policemen
have, in the past been above re-
proach. Throughout the law-enforcing business,
the Detroit men in blue are known for toeing the
mark, attending strictly to duty, and catching a
gangster now and then.
But recent reports coming out of the Motor City
have made us doubt the purity of General Pick-
ert's boys. According to an Associated Press dis-
patch, Detroit policemen are all upset over the
case of an albino deer which is supposed to have
roamed the city streets.
Moreover, continues the Associated Press, which
is a very accurate news service, the deer is still
at large and the officers are quite upset over the
fact. The policemen believe the deer the same one
seen recently in Windsor and hold that it swam
across the Detroit river.
Well, maybe. But it is a fact that if there are
any albino deer they are more rare than dry
weather in Ann Arbor, and that they are confined
to the far northlands. And such a timid animal
as an albino deer would hardly take himself or
herself - the sex of the deer was not established
-to such populous districts as Detroit.
As for the deer being seen in Windsor - well
Canadians are sometimes funny that way. But in
Detroit? It just taxes our credulity a little too
much.
We respectfully suggest that General Pickert do
a little checking up on his boys.
Or maybe it was white mule or white horse,
rather than white deer.
As Others See It
A Study In Color
(From the Birmingham Post)
IRISHMAN JIM FARLEY likes to sign his per-
sonal letters in green ink.
Postmaster General J. A. Farley spends many
of his on-duty hours in Washington trying to get
out a Postoffice Department financial statement
in which black ink will be predominant.
Democratic National Chairman James A. Farley,
in his off-duty hours, stares at the deep red in
the balance on the party's books and contemplates
with green envy the solid black surplus shown in
the Republican accounts.
Presidential Re-Election Campaign Manager
James Aloysius Farley studies with purple per-
pjexity how to keep the voters from thinking too
much about the crimson tide of Arabic numerals
flowing daily from the Treasury Department's
comptometers.
But despite all this, Mr. Farley apparently has
not gone color blind and has not turned pessimist.
In Chicago to see a World Series ball game, in a
shift from on-duty to off-duty, Mr. Farley an-
nounced that the 1936 Democratic National Con-i
vention will be held in whichever city makes the
highest bid.
If any city bids enough to wipe out the whole
$417,000 deficit of the Democratic national com-
mittee, we will know that prosperity has indeed
rounded the corner.
Variorum
(From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
THE CURIOUS who like to look up everything
were a little baffled by President Roosevelt's
quotation in his San Diego speech in which he
said the most menacing clouds over government
were "malice domestic and fierce foreign war."
The quoted words he attributed to "the greatest
writer in our history."
Assuming Shakespeare to be the writer referred
to "malice domestic" and "foreign levy"-levy,
meaning armed force - appear in Act 3, Scene 2.
of Macbeth. This is the quotation:
Duncan is in his grave.-
After life's fitful fever he sleeps well.
Treason has done his worst, nor steel nor
poison.
Malice dlorestic, foreign levy,
Nothing can touch him further.)
It has been suggested that perhaps the Pres-
ident mixed up that quotation with Antony's

speech (Julius Caesar, Act 3, Scene 1):
Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
Shall cumber all the parts of Italy.

A Washington
BYSTAN DER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Oct. 15.
SOME DEMOCRATIC political leaders do not see
eye to eye with President Green of the A.F. of
L. as to the origin of the 1935 drive in federation
circles for abandonment of the traditional non-
partisan policy in favor of setting up a new labor
party.
Green looks abroad, to Russian sources, for the
renewed labor party urge. The Democrats hint
darkly of possible sponsorship closer home. They
think G.O.P. strategists might have something to
do with it.
If the labor party argument was not a hardy
perennial of labor federation conventions, it might
attract more attention. There always has been a
difference of opinion within the federation as to
political procedure. Its traditional attitude of aid-
ing its friends and fighting its enemies at elec-
tion time, national, state or municipal, dates back.
to the days of the late Samuel Gompers
THERE never has been much prospect that it
would be abandoned. The federation's ac-
cepted slogan is that it is "partisan to a prin-
ciple," that of- equal rights. In a nation where
the farmer element exercises so much of the voting
strength, the effectiveness of that non-partisan
policy is time-tested.
Nevertheless, if organized labor could be in-
duced to go into the labor party organization bus-
iness on a grand scale for the '36 campaign, say,
quite possibly it could have an incalculable influ-
ence on the congressional elections.
To the eyes of most Washington political on-
lookers, the signs in industrial areas such as Rhode
Island and Connecticut, where tests of sorts al-
ready have been had, point toward heavy Demo-
cratic losses in the House of the next Congress.
Should there be injected labor party candidates
for Congress in addition to the regular Republican
and Democratic nominees, loss of control of the
House to the Republicans might result.
Certainly, on the record, the Democrats would
stand to lose more from a labor party intervention
than would the Republicans.
* * * *
SO FAR as the Roosevelt second term is con-
cerned, a separate labor party might not mean
so much. Mr. Roosevelt's message of greeting to
th'e federation convention is by way of indicating
the extent to which his political aides count on
support of organized labor as well as the farmer
vote next year. He spoke as President, of course,
but he also is Prospective Candidate Roosevelt.
That a labor party could be developed in less
than a course of years to name its own presidential
ticket is not very probable. As things stand,
Mr. Roosevelt probably expects federation en-
dorsement in some form in '36.
Many House Democrats stewing about their
re-election prospects also are unquestionably hop-
ing for local labor O. K.'s. They may be confi-
dent that their records in the House insure that.
Yet, if a simon-pure labor party candidate ap-
peared to make a three-way or more race of it
in such districts, those carefully fostered labor
vote records on the hill would not count for much.

Dancing And Things
To the Editor:
Whether this will ever reach the eyes of the
"powers that be" at the Union remains to be seen,
but no one can say we didn't try. The point in
question is the much advertised "limiting" of the
sale of tickets to the Saturday night membership

dances at the Union. According to the advance
notices we really should have been able to dance
last night, but now many of the poor, rooked stu-
dents feel that perhaps the alleged "limiting" was
only a lure. Frankly I know nothing of the fi-
nances concerned in these dances, but I am sure
that others, like myself, would rather go less often
and really dance, and if necessary, pay twenty five
to fifty cents more. Limiting attendance so far
has appeared to consist of limiting it to the num-
ber who ask for tickets. Considering the size
of the ballroom and the seating capacity between
dances, five hundred persons is a nice sized crowd.
I feel that the atmosphere, the floor, and the ar-
rangements at the Union, to say nothing of the
orchestra which rates second to none in this part
of the country at least, are far superior to those
at the League, and I should certainly think twice
before changing, but even beyond the lack of
chances for dancing in such crowds, one does lose
so much time from classes if each date means
Health Service treatment of a wide variety of
punctures, lacerations, and major contusions.

A Matter Of Dates
To the Editor:
In the Michigan Daily of Sunday, October 13th
there appeared an article "Bible Tells the Story
of Ethiopia" by Stephen J. McDonough in which
was said "About 1600 A.D. the Mohammedans con-
quered Egypt . . . " This statement should be cor-
rected because Egypt was conquered by the Mo-
hammedans in 641 A.D. under the leadership of
Amr ibn el-As. s-M. Aga-Oglu.

Ten Years Ago
From The Daily Files
Of Oct. 12, 1925

The Pittsburgh Pirates took the
World Series by winning the seventh
game, 9-7, when Kiki Cuyler hit a
home run with the bases loaded in
the eighth inning.
Ann Arbor made preparations to
have everything here but the game
when the Wolverines were to meet
the Badgers in Madison the next day.
A gigantic grid-graph was set up in
Hill Auditorium and a freshman band
of 35 pieces was to play.
More than l,OQQ students entrained
for the Wisconsin game. 45 of them
were women.
Election frauds seemed to be abun-
dant on the campus. A reelection in
the pharmacy school was called when
the elections committee suspected in-
side politics. The eligibility for John
Lovette, recently-elected J-Hop
chairman, was questioned, his op-
ponents charging that he was de-
ficient in hours and credits, and the
office of the Dean of Students was in-
vestigating the matter.
The large number of entering jun-
iors this year has motivated discus-
sion on changing the entire activi-
ties program for women.
