IT IS WITH NO little surprise and
a great deal of pleasure that we
learn of the plans of Jack Heston, former Michigan
backfield star, to send all but one of his crack
Detroit amateur football teams to Michigan, and
to continue to gather together the best of De-
troit's high school football players, give them a
year or two of post-graduate work in the amateur
league, and send them on to Ann Arbor.
Undoubtedly, there is going to be much viewing
with alarm at this by members and alumni of
other universities, and by pseudo-purists at Mich-
igan.
To the former we may point out truthfully that
their protests will be occasioned largely by dis-
appointment at their inability to secure many of
Detroit's large and capable young footballers. They
have, in the past, had alert alumni and persuasive
speakers who have brought good football players
to their schools, provided them with an educa-

tion, and in return secured the benefits of a fine
team. Mr. Heston, a Michigan alumnus, has
apparently gotten a bit ahead of his contempo-
raries by use of newer and better methods -
actual football training under competent direction
before entering the University, and provisions for
a scholarship fund maintained by the football-
playing group itself, for example. It is only fitting
that the rewards should go to him who merits
them.
As for those pseudo-purists who will profess
to see unethical and detrimental tendencies in
Mr. Heston's work, let them reflect upon the actual
results to be achieved under this plan.
First, through cooperative action in maintaining
a scholarship fund, and through some measure of
aid in securing jobs when they come to Ann
Arbor, quite a few young men will obtain a college
education, which otherwise they would not have
had.
Further, Michigan will have better football
teams. This will bring in more money and allow

T HE SIGNIFICANCE of current
events often passes unnoticed in
the confusion with which editorial writers sur-
round the issue by over-emphasizing some con-
spicuous but unimportant aspect of the affair.
Oswald Garrison Villard brought this realiza-
tion to us forcefully Tuesday evening as he dis-
cussed the League of Nations' peace efforts in the
Italo-Ethiopian conflict.
For weeks we have been reading editorials
rapping England's attitude in peace settlement as
utter selfishness. So England has engrossed our
attention - and we have failed to realize "the
truly significant aspect of the affair.
The League, shorn of nearly all its influence (if
it ever had any), has been transformed into an
organization which at least has laid the foun-
dation for building prestige and power. No more,
-ave the occurrence of a miracle, will nations be
able to go to war without meeting a barricade.
More than that, the bulk of the nations of the
world have taken their stand behind any move-
ment for the maintenance of peace. Whether the
League carries through its praise-worthy methods
of stopping Fascist Mussolini or not, whether Eng-
land is adopting strong-arm methods of suggesting
Italy's course to her or not, the League is no longer
that mythical and nebulous organization that we
have known for so long.
Who cares, asks Mr. Villard, what England's
purposes are in supporting peace attempts? Why
should we care? If her attempts are selfish she
will find herself prevented from ever espousing
a war in the future by an obstacle to whose erec-
tion she has contributed.
The cynics who look with disdain upon England
today should rather be optimistic at the forward
stride the world is taking in establishing an
international obstacle to war.

Armistice Day Planes
To the Editor:
As we approach Armistice Day we face the
imminent possibility of another World war. Whe-
ther our student generation will again be sacri-
ficed for a purpose of questionable benefit to
themselves and humanity will soon be decided.
It is this which has led to the formation of a
National Committee for Student Mobilization for
Peace on Armistice Day. Among the organizations
officially represented on this National Committee
are the National Student Councils of the Y.M.C.A.
and Y.W.C.A., the Student League for Industrial
Democracy, the National Student League and the
Committee on Militarism in Education, etc., etc.
Recognizing that resolutions and mass meetings
are not enough, the National Committee is-urging
students to translate their peace sentiment into
concrete action by (1) actively supporting genuine
neutrality legislation to prevent entanglement
of the United States in foreign war; (2) working
for the demilitarization of our colleges and schools,
especially by assuring the passage of the Nye-.
Kvale bill to make the R.O.T.C. optional instead
of compulsory; (3) insisting upon opportunities
in the curriculum and out for relating our edu-
cation to these crucial problems; (4) refusing
to support the government of the United States
in a war outside of the territorial boundaries of
the country.
A University Peace Council of faculty and stu-
dents is being initiated by a number of religious
and liberal groups on the campus. It will inaug-
urate its own year-round program of education for
peace, which will include a consideration of the
national student program, with a public meeting
on Armistice Day. This movement deserves the
active support of every student andt faculty
member who is interested in taking a definite
stand in favor of peace. The Council urges the
participation of all organized groups and indivi-
dual students.

After all these years of labor The Times warns
its readers that unification of rapid transit lines

CARRYING THE OMIRO ROUTE
When kids in Oshkosh got big enough to work,
they usually began by getting a Daily Northwest-
ern route. Although I was a farm kid, I went to
town to school and so knew three or four paper
boys. When Bob Morgan got a route, I felt I must
have one, also. But living on a farm complicated
matters. The paper was not off the press until
about 4:30 o'clock, and sometimes much later,
when the press would break down. Since a route
of twenty-five or thirty papers might require an
hour or more to deliver, I could hardly hope to get
home before 6:30 or 7 o'clock, because I would
have three miles to walk after the route was
carried. I shouldn't have minded that, for, with a
25-customer route, I could have made a dollar a
week. But my father was so unreasonable as to
believe I might neglect my regular chores at home,
if I didn't get there until 6:30 or 7 o'clock.
Prospects of ever carrying papers were slim,
when Ray Shep stopped by one day and offered
me the Omro route. He had been carrying it
for two years or more and it seemed to me no
one in the world had as much fun as Ray Shep.
But now he was almost nineteen years old and big
enough to put in full time with his father in the
stone quarry, so he had to give up his paper
route.

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7. - Colonel
Howe, presidential secretary,
after a prolonged silence due to ill-
ness, returns to his role of commen-
tator on the march of political events
voicing one very sage observation.
He says the Republican effort to se-
lect now a main issue for the next
presidential campaign is "prema-
ture."
There may be much in that. With
so many "new deal' legislative kettles
on or soon to be on the supreme
court fire, including the Triple-A
headliner; with the winter still to
test the administration's work-relief
program; with the imponderables of
a new European war scare still to be
weighed and with present encourag-
ing recovery trends awaiting the con-
firmation of' the next few months,
who knows what the '36 issues will be?
Mr. Howe argues that it is the
folks with the votes who make issues,
not party leaders. Who now can say
which of all these things will be chief-
ly concerning the voters next spring
at primary time or in November next
year?
THE Howe argument is supported
by the Borah-Theodore Roosevelt
II correspondence. Colonel Roose-
velt does not at all agree with the
Idaho senator's, notion that his mon-
opoly issue, backed by rising living
costs, is the ideal central plank for
the G.O.P. next year. Young Teddy
most politely declines to raise again
at the senator's suggestion the trust-
busting banner his distinguished
father carried.
That is not very surprising. The
colonel is a young chap with a historic
name and unconcealed political am-
bitions. He is also, however, a New
Yorker. Party political favor begins
at home. Can Mr. Borah possibly be-
lieve that his 1936 model trust-bust-
ing slogan sounded sweetly in the
ears of the New York G.O.P.?
It would take a great stretch of
imagination to picture young Teddy
joining the Borah move to overthrow
old guard leadership of the party and
championing the trust-busting Borah
idea and at the same time being lift-
ed to '36 favorite son honors by his
New York party colleagues. His own
preference for making "new deal"
"wasteful spending" the major point
of attack no doubt is much more to
New York G.O.P. liking. It also has
Hoover blessing, is well thought of by,
such well financed organizations as
the Liberty League and Economy
League. Nor will anything the su-
preme court may do change it very
much.
& : :
THAT Democratic strategists more
or less agree with young Roose-
velt's point of view at this stage is
indicated ly the promptness with
which they moved to repel Republi-
can boarders on that subject. Mr.
Hoover was no sooner in print with
his attack on Roosevelt fiscal policy
than the Democrats had Joe Robin-
son, their senate leader, out in ans-
wer. The Republican national com-
mittee blast at President Roosevelt's
budgetary "deception" was no sooner
out than Speaker Byrns, via the Dem-
ocratic committee, was out to refute
it.
If young Teddy had incorporated
more budget figures in his answer to
Borah, probably the Democrats would
have found a little cabineteer of
their own to shoot back at him.

As Others See It
'Red Hot' Administrators
(From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
INSPIRED by Hugh S. Johnson's declaration that
Felix Frankfurter has become the "most influ-
ential single individual in the United States," the
New York Herald Tribune has printed an inven-
tory from its Washington bureau listing former
students and associates of the Harvard law profes-
sor now occupying posts of importance at the
national capital. For some time the Chicago Daily
Tribune has sought to discredit this group of
youthful administrators and counselors by calling
them Frankfurter's "hot dogs," or perhaps it is
Frankfurter's "red hots."
Any attempt to bring discredit on Prof. Frank-
furter or these former students of his because of
their relationships will fall flat on the ears of the
ever-increasing number of Americans who have
come to realize that a trained personnel in gov-
ernment is -one of the fundamental needs of this
country. As a matter of fact, many of these young
administrators and counselors have come under
the special influence not only of Prof. Frankfurter
but of Justice Brandeis of the United States Su-

My father agreed the Omro route might be
worth considering. Mr. O. J. Hardy, business-
manager of the Daily Northwestern, gave special
consideration to the country carriers, and charged
them only a dollar a week for all the papers they
might need. Since the Omro route had seventy
regular customers, who paid 10 cents a week, the
net, profit each week ran into big money. True, it
was ten miles to Omro, but only seven miles back,
since we lived three miles out on the Omro road.'
True, I would have to drive a horse in to town
each morning, when I went to school, and keep it
in town all day, but I could put it up at the
Commercial Hotel barn for ten cents a day. Be-
sides we had plenty of horses, and not much use
for them in the winter time. They had to be
fed anyway and six dollars a week would buy a
lot of horse feed.
So I became paper boy on the Omro route. The
country carriers always got their papers first and
didn't have to stand in line with the city kids, so I
usually got started by 4:30, unless the press broke
down. If I drove Legs, who was our fastest horse,
I was often home, had Legs fed and bedded down{
and was eating my own supper by 9 o'clock.
Pretty soft. I probably never shall have such a
good job again. ORSON WAGON.
There will be published Friday "The Roman-
tic Rebels," by Frances Winwar. We haven't
read it, and this is breaking no release date. But
it seems to us that this should be said about
the three rebels that the book is concerned with:

By MARY JANE CLARK
In his book "Success in Music And
How It Is Won," Henry T. Fink gives
the formula which artists use in
building their programs. He says }
they are worked out in the same
manner in which famous chefs plan
their menus: first come the appetiz-
ers followed by the heavier dishes of
the feast, saving the sweets until
last. Carrying the analogy to the
Rachmaninoff concert of last night,1
we find all the hors d'oeuvres left out
and in their absence, we are plunged
immediately into the meat of the
program, to-wit, Beethoven's Thirty-
Two Variations, and a Chopin Sonata.
These works of darker color, both be-
ing in minor mode, make up the pre-
intermission period and were relieved
only by three charming Eighteenth
Century sonatas by Scarlatti.
The moderns take possession of a
large part of the remainder of the'
program. The impressionistand col-
orist, Scriabin, contributed a Poeme
and an Etude of which the Poeme'
was the more striking. It is a vague
questioning and a pleading to which
there is no answer even when the
main theme playfully coaxes its way
to the end of the work. In the Med-
tner Fairy Tale, there is no mistaking
the traditional beginning, "Once up-
on a time . . . " There is a heroine
but sheris evidently too charming
to give rise to any turbulence from
the villain because he is properly sub-
dued.

AT THE MICHIGAN
THE BLUE VENUS REVUE
and
"A FEATHER IN HER HAT"
The highly-touted Blue Venus Re-
vue is almost the best thing that has
been on the Michigan stage this year,
having a capable cast doing every-
thing from acrobatics to toe dances.
Exceptional scenery and lighting help
achieve some unusual effects. We
must admit that the two semi-bur-
lesque scenes were a bit of a sur-
prise, but they were so momentary
that the effect on the total revue was
negligible.
The picture which accompanies the
revue is one of those which do not
appear very promising but turn out
to be far above the average. Excel-
lent performances by Pauline Lord,
Basil Rathbone, and Wendy Barrie
make this one of the really good
pictures.
The story concerns the efforts
of the mother (Pauline Lord) to make
an English gentleman out of her son
(Louis Hayward) even though they,
are of the lower class. She does this
with the aid of a cultured but drunk-
en captain (Basil Rathbone) who
comes to live with the family. Rich-
ard is finally told by his mother that
she is only his nurse and she sends
him away so he will be among people
of the upper classes. He takes up
playwriting, after discovering a re-
tired actress (Billie Burke) whom he
believes is his real mother, and pro-
