Student Workers

Shakespeare and the English and American
classics down their throats."
Anyone who has had experience with most high
school English classes are aware that the classics
are an unwelcome feature of the curriculum to the
student and is forced to agree with Mr. Hully and
the National Council to this extent. But it is much
more difficult to agree with them on the reasons
for the students' distaste for the classics and to
follow them when they hint that' they should
therefore be largely abandoned.
Cramming is just another word for intensive and
determined study. We do not believe that an
intensive and determined study of the classics
will force a student to turn to "cheap pulp mag-
azines," but quite the opposite. The trouble must
lie elsewhere, then.
Frankly, we believe it lies with the teachers.
The National Council, in its experimental pro-
gram, has indicated that to turn from the work
of artists of the past to the work of present day
machine-made technicians is the way to hold the
students' interest. There is much truth in their
assumption that it is difficult for the student to
grasp the aesthetic work of men of the past, yet
we cannot agree that the remedy is the abandon-
ment of that art for an immersion in sundry pie-
bald products of present day society. A search for
reality there must be, yet there is certainly a more
intelligent and satisfactory path to take than the
experimental curriculum.
We believe that reality and resulting enjoyment
of the classics by the student will be attained when
the social, economic, and cultural forces amid
which classical literature is born are presented
to the student and when at the same time, he
has an understanding of those forces in the
present day society. Through such understanding
great literature of the past has come to be recog-
nized as such, and through such understanding
the student will find a true appreciation and en-
joyment of it.

Attend The Forums
To the Editor:
Freshmen who don't attend the so-called "for-
ums" held every Tuesday in the Union at 4:15
p.m. don't realize what they are missing. More
can be learned there in an hour about life on
the campus than can be learned in a week of
roaming around. It is as though one were look-
ing at college life through a telescope.
Others who have had the same experiences and
difficulties or perhaps some quite different get
together here for a frank, open discussion of the
The person who started calling them "forums"
had the wrong idea. What they really amount to
are "bull sessions." Everything imaginable is
discussed. At one, the problem of how a freshman
goes about getting a date was talked over. Such
problems cannot be learned in the classroom;
only the experiences of others can help solve the
problem. Here all one has to do is to ask the
question and someone will have a suggestion for an
Freshmen, drop around next week. Learn
college life, not as it should be but as it is.
Ought To Be A Law
To the Editor:
I do not doubt that those who invented and
developed that noblest of noble American insti-
tutions, the radio, were actuated by the most
altruistic motives. I have always had the deepest
affection for that instrument-until I came to
the University of Michigan. I am now convinced
that the radio is Public Nuisance Number One.
Everywhere I go in this fair town I hear one of
those noise-machines sobbing away. I can't read
the morning newspaper for five minutes without
being jarred out of my thoughts by a loud-speaker.,
I can't talk with a friend at a meal without one
drowning out our conversation. And now I can't'
even enjoy the recuperation of a hot shower
without hearing these canned crescendos crashing
through the locker-room. The American citizen
is a patient soul and can take a lot of punish-1
ment. But the climax is just about reached when,.
for-, three successive mornings, someone has to
stop his car in front of my quarters at 6:30 a.m.
with a dash-board set going full blast. My room-
mate and I definitely do not like hill-billy music
in the last hour of our slumbers (and who does).
If these dawn serenades continue, someone is going
to take the law into his own hands.
Spengler must have been thinking of these
radio-morons when he wrote his Decline of the
SWest sl -Afflicted.

He promised, he promised to make a deposit
He promised, he promised to make a deposit
And now -- to my horror and shame - I'm
afraid of
A telephone call from the bank!
Those who think It Can't Happen Here might
look at the Association of Brother's Keepers and
scan the activities of that fictitious organization.
Many of them wrote letters, published in yester-
day's Herald Tribune, to the effect that there
should be no welcome to Jimmy Walker. Why
citizens in the Land of the Free should try to
interfere with those who pursue happiness in
welcoming Jimmy Walker we don't see. We don't
want to welcome him, nor does our gigantic ac-
quaintance include anybody who has told us
that he will be among those to do to him rev-
erence. Those who object to the welcome seem to
us more numerous than those who objected to
the way Walker ran their city; certainly they
are more articulate.
It seems to us that loudest shouters against
the Walker welcome are potential lynchers. This
department will fail to give three, or any fraction
thereof, cheers, and let it go at that.
I've got myop'a
On Briffault's "Europa."
Courage, oh give this coward aid
To read Grace Adams's "Don't Be Afraid."
Even so careful a speaker as Mr. James M.
Beck speaks of widely "broadcasted" expressions:
and even so careful a publishing house as Funk &
Wagnalls blurbs that John B. Opdyke's "Get It
Right: A Cyclopedia of Correct English Usage," is
"The most complete handbook in its field."
Spring is too far away for men to ponder
Upon their frozen fields and idle plows.
Across the sky, like death's own fingers wander
The delicate, gray boughs . .
Pale silhouettes against that pale blue weaving
Which in the tapestry of winter lies ...
Too far away is spring for dreams or grieving-
To lost for robins' cries.
Yet there must come an hour - and a stirring
In the deep blood of earth that wakens men
To think of beauty and the primal luring
Of Aprils born again.
And this cool pattern, in the same brief hour,
Escapes its chastity of autumn vows-
Senses the seed, the vernal leaf, the flower . .
Oh, delicate, gray boughs!
Sir: Always on the lookout for poetic prose,
I never expected to find anything like Walter
Savage Landor's "There are no fields of amaranth
on this side of the grave" or Thomas Bailey
Aldrich's "There is no Margery Daw!" Today,
though, I came across the perfect sentence on
an advertising page of an old Harper's, which
I read from cover to cover because it was given
me and I seldom see a 35-cent magazine since
the slight financial embarrassment of 1929. Some
unknown copy writer in some advertising factory,
now perhaps extinct, ended is appeal to the read-
ing public with these words:
"There is no substitute for marble."
The harmony of that sentence simply haunts
me, although the statement itself is not wholly
true. I once subtracted my name from the pay
roll of a managing editor whose heart was the
substitute for marble. Aside from that, it's
A Washington novelty dealer, according to th
A.P., is doing a brisk business in selling copie
of the Constitution. Suggested editorial to ou
contemporary, the Daily Worker, The Menac
of the Constitution Rocket.

WASHINGTON - Nov. 1. - An-
nouncement from so-called '"au-
thoritative" if undisclosed Republican
sources that the '36 national conven-
tion would sit in Chicago, comes with
little surprise. Political guessers have
been in agreement for months that
G. 0. P, strategy, from every point
of view, demanded a midwestern set-
ting and that Chicago was the most
likely contender.
Had the various Republican "grass
roots" gatherings of last summer been
more of the Borah mind for organiz-
ing a western revolt against old guard
eastern leadership of the party, it
might have been different. An even
more westernly setting for the con-
vention might have been the first de-
mand of the "rebels." There is very
little prospect now, however, thatthe
December meeting of the Republican
national committee to pick the con-
vention site will not ratify the Chi-
cago selection. It would take a very
extraordinary cash bid from some
other city to upset things.
*'* * *
OLNE reason is that convention sites
are figured as having some pos-
sible effect on the subsequent voting
in such areas. The big electoral vote
factors for '36 are going to be the
New York and Illinois returns. It is
repeatedly said that Mr. Roosevelt
confidently could expect reelection if
he were certain of either.
Quite obviously the Republicans
could not seriously consider taking
their convention to New York. Even
if the city were prepared to make a
bid for the show, of which there is
no prospect, the idea of embarking
on an effort to induce disgruntled
western Republican contingents to
join up on a harmony candidate and
platform in the very shadow of Wall
Street would be fantastic.
For similar reason, growing out of
intra-party disagreement about for-
mer President Hoover's eligibility for
another chance at the White House,
California seems out of the conven-
tion picture. It would be waving a
red rag at the anti-Hooverites to go
to his state, nosmatter how alluring,
on a cash basis, offers from San
Francisco or Los Angeles might be.
* *4 *t
CHICAGO, however, is in effect
neutral ground between eastern
industrialists and western agricultur-
al bloc folks. If Illinois is to be a
pivotal state in the election, what
better place than Chicago for such
advance advertising as national con-
ventions provide?
Less is heard about where the Dem-
ocrats will gather to go through con-
vention motions and renominate Mr.
Roosevelt., The "ins" quadrennial
gathering always is less of a show
than that of the "outs."
For political reasons, some Demo-
cratic advisers look favorably upon
Atlantic City for the convention.
Others, however, believe it must go
somewhere in the farm belt.
"MRS. ASTOR'S HORSE," by Stan-
ley Walker; (Stokes).
THERE have been funny goings-
on in this country during the las
decade, Stanley Walker, who has ob-
served the American pageant of daf-
finess from the vantage point of a
newspaper city desk, presents an as-
sortment of curiosa Americana in
"Mrs. Astor's Horse."
Each chapter is a "special article.'
The book is amusing and interesting
because Mr. Walker is a good editor
He knows what facts and anecdote:
are interesting and he offers them
in a straightforward, witty manner.
He traces the decline of high so
e ciety to the point where Pugilist Jac
s Dempsey, in opening his new restau
r rant, writes the President: "Dear Mr

e Roosevelt: Your presence at my op
ening would make it. I can't begin
to tell you how much I would lik
to have you come. If you can, wil
you please let me know so I can re
y serve your table."
Jimmy Walker's proclivities as
greeter, the lavish funerals of rub
bed-out gangsters, headaches of radi
advertising and life in Hollywood ar
some of the subjects Mr. Walke
works on.
In "The Palate-Teasing Racket
he explores the weird concoctions o
tea rooms and food experts of th
present era - the myriad ways o
making a lamb chop look and tast
like something else. He tells some c
the unbelievable things that wen
on backstage at the Hauptmann tria

look with respect at those students
who are forced to earn their way through col-

courage to work, in addition to attending school,
should be commended, and anything that the
college community can do to make their task
easier should be done.
Many students have been aided in working their
way through school by the Federal government's
relief program - this year the National Youth
Administration. In this University more than 1,-
000 students have been given jobs. Most of these
jobs are of a clerical or technical nature. Some
of them are physical, such as raking leaves or
