to infer, that the Chicago judge neglected "human
principles" in favor of the letter of the law.
But we do know that such criticism may well be
made of many decisions handed down by our
jurists today.
Our law, and any law, is of necessity a living,
ever evolving thing. In a society such as ours,
the political and social philosophy of the jurist
must be put into his interpretation of the law.
He must adapt the cold, lifeless legal terminology
to the personal, human case. He must be "hu-
man." The letter of the law is for naught when
it works against justice - what the jurist knows
and believes is right.
Our government can only last, and it has only
lasted, because our. jurists have moulded the legal
putty to fit the circumstance. Law that was
pertinent to the letter in 1787 cannot be so today.
If the law is to remain, it must be reinterpreted
in the light of today.
This can be so done only by injecting into it
so-called "human principles."

As Others See It
Alert Aloofness
(From the New York Herald-Tribune)
SECRETARY HULL'S response to the League of
Nations request for comment upon its course
has been surrounded with all the solemn em-
phasis of a great state paper. It is clearly in-
tended as a definite statement of basic American
policy; indeed, an unnamed official in the State
Department has even supplied it with one of those
catchword designations in which-as in the case
of "watchful waiting," or "non-recognition," or
"the good neighbor"- American foreign policies
are by tradition summarized. This one is "alert
aloofness.
Alert aloofness turns out upon examination,
to be by no means the clearest statement in the
history of American foreign affairs. It stresses
a vital American interest in the observance of
the Kellogg pact, yet seems to confine any action
under that document to a purely "moral" sphere.
It declares that the measures taken under the
recent neutrality act were "primarily to avoid
being drawn into the war," yet hints that they
may also have been adopted because of their effect
"in discouraging war," which is something quite
different. On the specific question of League
sanctions it seems to confine the United States
to strict neutrality; yet it expresses a desire "not
to contribute to a prolongation of the war," and
by viewing "with sympathetic interest the efforts
of other nations to localize and shorten" it, seems
to range the United States with the anti-Italian
posse and keep alive the idea of "negative" co-
operation in sanctions.
The Italian press is hailing it as a rebuff
to the League; Geneva might equally find in it en-
couragement to proceed against Italy. The rea-
son for this obscurity appears to be plain. The
document, according to unofficial exegesis, is
founded upon two pillars - a desire to preserve
world peace, and a desire, if this fails, to stay
wholly out of the resultant war. Each is in
itself an admirable and a rational objective; un-
fortunately, there is an ultimate inconsistency
between them. If one goes further than mere
moral exhortation, there is no way actively to
preserve peace save by assisting to decide the
issues out of which thebwar threat has arisen;
but to do that is to become a party to the
war if it does, after all, break out. Alert aloof-
ness has succeeded no better than earlier Amer-
ican policies in solving this dilemma, and the
obscurity of the phrasing is but the surface
reflection of this hidden contradiction.
It is the avoidance of entanglement in the war,
however, which is advanced as the "primary"
purpose; it is here that the policy is most em-
phatic, and, upon the other objective, that it is
most vague. The present administration, like
others before it, is still trying to ride two horses;
but here is fresh reason to hope that, when the
dangers of the attempt appear, it will be to the
back of the first one that Mr. Hull and the Pres-
ident will transfer themselves.
The Registration Record
(From the Cornell Daily Sun)
THE PRESENT high figures for New York
state's registration, which may shatter all
records for an "off-year" election, are puzzling
all political observers. The only important issue
on which the public will be called to vote on No-
vember 5th is the control of the State Assembly,
and this in itself has never before been a subject
for such popular interest.
The Republicans claim this new registration
record is but one more indication of the increased
opposition to the New Deal, while the Democrats
aver that the body politic is flocking to endorse
the proletrian benefits enjoyed under their en-
lightened administration. Both parties cite volu-
minous statistics from various urban districts to
prove their contentions, but still this is not enough
to account for some of the registration figures,
which are double that of 1931.
Since the issues at stake are comparatively un-
important, the real cause of this heavy enrollment
should probably be attributed to the generally in-

creased public interest in all political affairs that
has been so evident during the last few crucial
years of governmental activity. The economic
problems born of the depression have made the
voting public politically conscious, and this new
interest is dramatically reflected in all referenda.
If the depression has brought untold misery
upon the country, it has also at least given the
people a healthy consciousness of their duties as
citizens, and in that respect we are approaching
the democratic ideal of "government of the
people, by the people, and for the people."

NIGHT EDITOR: GUY M. WHIPPLE, JR.
Anniversary Of
The Depression. .
W E ARE NOW, we hope, well on the
way out of these depths into which
we began to plunge after the stock market crashed
six years ago yesterday.
The six intervening years have given a perspec-
tive that enables us to scientifically analyze the
causes of the collapse.
But in our analysis, there is a danger that we
may overlook a more important duty - the duty
of planning and revamping our economic order
to prevent another upset, such as that which
followed the demolition of the market, involved
the crashing of thousands of banks and was
marked by the impoverishment of millions of men
and women.
The great majority of the economically literate
Americans still have faith in the capitalistic sys-
tem. They wish to preserve it because they be-
lieve that it works out better than any other yet
developed. And because they do, we believe that
they will unite in working out plans to eliminate
the capitalistic system's most damning fault -
the periodic breakdowns, or depressions.
If we are to be spared the destructive oppression
of capitalism, and still benefit from its freedom,
this realistic re-examination must be made. And
if it is, we believe that some way out will be de-
vised.
If it is not, then our economic system will de-
generate into a dictatorial Communism or Fas-
cism.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29.-- It might
interest Senator George Norris to
know that his idea -or should it be
ideal -of a non-political postmasterr
general may not be far from realiza-u
tion. It could happen that "Big Jim"b
Farley's successor, when he steps out
of the cabinet to devote himself to
1936 presidential campaign manag-S
ing, will be picked not only with ther
purpose of getting the postoffice outp
of politics but also of getting politics.
out of the postoffice.b
The decision rests with President
Roosevelt. If anyone possibly is inf
the know as to what the President
is thinking about in that connection,
from Farley all down through then
political wing of the "new deal," therer
is no discovering the fact. One andI
all profess to have heard no namingb
of names. That, too, in the face ofr
frequently published and rarelyo
agreeing forecasts of cabinet shake-n
ups before election time.c
S* * *
SECRETARY DAN ROPER of the
commerce department usually is
mentioned as a "probable" FarleyN
successor. The only known basis fore
that is his long and highly active ca-f
reer in the Democratic party organi-i
zation. He once was an assistantc
postmaster general.i
Against that are whispers audible
here and there in Democratic circles
that what is more likely to happen is
the selection of a nationally knownr
business man to run Uncle Sam's big-
gest enterprise, the mail business. He
must be a Democrat, the whisper goes,c
but that would be the only requiredc
political qualification. His past party
activity would be not much more thant
casting his own vote to insure hisr
eligibility. His only activity as post-v
master general would be to run thei
mail service.
* * * *
IT GOES even so far that some in-
siders toy with the notion of aG
strictly career appointment. There
are several important city postmas-
ters of long service, some who climbed
through the ranks from trudging car-
rier duty, who might qualify. Or
again, in the event of a business man1
appointment, such a career postmas-
ter might be brought in as virtual
executive officer.-
Farley himself has lent some colorI
to this sort of solution to the prob-
lem of naming his successor. He has
indicated that the Republican hold-
over postmaster of Washington, who1
came from career service in the postal
department and was not disturbed
when the "new deal" took office,
would be retained in the department-
al service. His term as city postmas-1
ter runs out next year. More than
that, Farley has indicated that a
career, not a political, successor would
be named to the capitol city postmas-
tership.
BOOKS ":
By JOHN SELBY
"CAPE COD YESTERDAYS," by Jo-
seph C. Lincoln; (Little, Brown).
WRITING popular novels to a
popular formula about a popular
part of the country may produce
valuable by-products.
For a great many years Joseph C.
Lincoln has been writing Cape Cod
novels. This was natural, for he
was born and "raised" on the Cape.
He still lives there summers, and he
still retains the ability to catch the
vanishing flavor of the Cape people.
And he still thinks it one of the most
charming spots in Amercia-one of
the few which retains its flavor in
spite of tourists.
His "Cape Cod Yesterdays" is the
by-product of his life on the Cape
and his search for novel material. It

is not a history and it is not a book
of personal reminiscences. Mr. Lin-
coln is writing the odds and ends
which his own memory has retained-
about such features as "Sharehold-
ers' Day" for example.
The Old Colony railroad crawled
slowly down the Cape selling shares
in each town it reached. And on the
day of the stockholders' meeting in
Boston, each holder of a share was
entitled to a round trip from his
home to Boston. People went who
hadn't the least business; it was an
institution.
Mr. Lincoln talks about the "char-
acters," too. Particularly about the
lonely old fiddler who thought it easy
money to rake enough scallops to
half fill a 2-gallon can, swell them
with fresh water until they filled the
can, carry the can six miles to a rail-
way station on a wheelbarrow, and
then wheel the barrow back home.
He got $7 and thought he'd driven a
sharp bargain!
Ship wrecks and life-saving, cran-
berries, Sandwich glass, the old pack-
et boat to Boston, shooting on the
Cape, fishing and fish weirs, the old
stage coaches, the windmills, old and
tall cape stories - these fill the book.
