THE MICHIGAN DAILY

for the past three years, does not encounter a
censorship as unintelligently wielded.
The artistic merits of "The Youth of Maxim"
are unquestioned. Declared by Russians one of the
best of its cinemas, it has been acclaimed by
American critics from New York to Hollywood.
No one will deny that it is propagandistic.
Practically every book we read, every picture we
see, every speech we hear affects our beliefs
either subtly or sharply, and in doing so is prop-
agandistic. Artists that have a purpose have
proved themselves the greatest.
The police censor offers scant explanation of his
action. "America offers sufficient tradition for
the American youth to cling to without the in-
troduction of subversive Russian films," he de-
clares.
It would be easier to dismiss the action with the
observation that, however plentiful tradition may
be, good movies are few, and that one whose
chief artistic experiences have been with the bur-
lesque can hardly be expected to have infallible
tastes. It is more significant to realize that there
is a threat to cultural integrity in the action of
Police Sergeant Koller, and that he undoubtedly
has many powerful friends who subscribe to his
strange artistic credo.

contributes his excellent comedy and Romero is
well cast as the "other man."
The surrounding program is very good, with
Paul Tompkins offering a round of college songs,
and a short which brings unusually good pictures
of the Baer-Louis massacre. -J.C.F.H.
AT THE MAJESTIC
"ANNA KARENINA"
Starring Greta Garbo and Frederic March, with
Freddie Bartholomew, Maureen O'Sullivan, May
Rcbson, Basil Rathbone, Reginald Denny, and Regi-
nald Owen.
Garbo and March score again in this drama-
ization of Tolstoy's book, aided by a really
excellent supporting cast. The story concerns the
,nhappy romance of Count Vronsky (March) and
Anna (Garbo) after the latter is already married
and unable to get a divorce.
We found the story to be somewhat depressing
at times, but for those who idolize Garbo this will
probably not be true. Freddie Bartholomew as
Anna's son, Sergei, gives a capable performance
which fails, however, to come up to his work in
David Copperfield.
The picture possesses a great deal of color, sup-
plied by the uniforms of the Russian officers and
the splendor of the dances shown. Anna meets
Vronsky while on a visit and falls in love with
him. After an interlude of gossip and failure on
Anna's part to get a divorce from her husband
who fears for his prestige and reputation, they
go away together, Vronsky resigning from his
regiment.
Vronsky's ardor cools when he longs for his
military comrades and he leaves after a quarrel
to join in the war. Anna, now without a way to
turn, takes her own life in a scene which was
very well directed.
One of the high spots for us, in the comedy side
of the picture, was the regimental reunion in
which a game that puts "Cardinal Puff" to shame
lands all the officers under a spacious table.
For those who believe it a crime to miss a
Garbo picture it would be best to go; for those
who don't the same applies, for it will be a topic
of conversation this week. Some have said it is
one of the best pictures they have seen. We
liked it. J.C.F.H.

America's Political
Sentiment,..
A GROUP of American business men
recently employed Forest Dale
Ward, an economic and political analyst, to sur-
vey the United States in an effort to determine
he political sentiment of the various states.
Ward's report, published in the New York Herald
Pribune of last Sunday, indicates an election the
esult of which may be the most freakish in
listory.
He finds that Pennsylvania, Vermont, New
Tampshire, Connecticut, Delaware, Michigan,
Vest Virginia, Illinois and Oregon are definitely
anti-Roosevelt. Nine states, he finds, at the
resent have a tendency to oppose the President:
Mlaine, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York, Ohio,
ansas, Minnesota, Idaho and California.
As definitely for Roosevelt he portrays almost
the entire South and Arizona, Utah, Colorado
and New Mexico. Those who tend to support the
?resident are Missouri, Wyoming, Montana, North
Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, Nevada, Iowa
and Nebraska.
In the doubtful class are Oklahoma, Wisconsin,
indiana, Maryland and Massachusetts. Three of
These states tend to oppose Roosevelt but not
/iolently enough to be classed as such.
If the political sentiment of the states remains
unchanged until election time we will find the
entire South and most of the Middle West for
Roosevelt. On the other hand we will find the
majority of the New England states, a few in the
Middle West, and Oregon, California and Idaho
aligned with Roosevelt's opposition.
The heavily populated states, and therefore,
hose having the most electoral votes, are lining
up with the forces opposing Roosevelt while the
agricultural states are sticking with the President.
So it is possible that the entire South, save
West Virginia, and the entire Middle West, save
Minnesota, Kansas and Illinois, can support Roose-
velt and still he can lose the election. The Pres-
ident may be supported by 29 states, his opposi-
tion by 19, and he will lose. If any one of the
doubtful states should join his opposition and the
other four doubtful ones should follow his caravan,
he would lose.
If political sentiment remains unchanged until
the election, the effect on the future of the 1iation
would be sorrowful. The manufacturing and
the agricultural interests would move farther apart
than ever before. It would irk the Middle West
and the South that they as a body were defeated
by the "money interests." It is not unlikely that
the "money interests" would feel all-powerful and
gloat a little.
But political sentiment will probably change
this year as it always has before in that long a time,
perhaps even enough to take the nomination from
Roosevelt.

"DIAMOND JIM"
A Universal production starring Edward Arnold
with Jean Arthur, Binnie Barnes,nCesar Romero, and
Eric Blore.
The name of Edward Arnold has gone a long
ways up the list of the best character actors as
a result of his portrayal of "Diamond Jim" Brady,
colorful figure of the "gay nineties" who made
and lost fortunes in the days of railroad expan-
sion. It is a picture that is full of life and laugh-
ter with Brady filling the role of the fabulously
wealthy figure who got everything from life but
the love he desired.
The story opens at his birth and continues until
he sits down to his last meal, knowing that eating
it will be his final act. Starting life as a baggage
clerk, Brady puts on a front on the assumption
that "to make money you have to look like money"
and gets his first big job as a salesman of railroad
equipment. While traveling he meets Sampson
Fox (Eric Blore) who has come from England to
sell trucks for coaches. Jim, realizing the poten-
tialities of it, forms a partnership with Fox and
they make millions.
Jim later loses this money but makes another

fortune when he introduces all-steel coaches.
During this time he has always been in love
with Emma (Jean Arthur) who had refused his
proposal of marriage. He meets Lillian Russell
(Binnie Barnes) and becomes her "good fairy,"
building her a private theatre. Lillian is in love
with Jerry Richardson (Cesar Romero) but the
latter cares for Jane Matthews (Jean Arthur's
second role). Jim also loves Jane because of her

Another Kind
Of Orientation.
D DURING ORIENTATION WEEK
the incoming freshman learned a
lot about the University. Where the various
buildings were, how to use the library, what was
expected of him in the way of study and a multi-
tude of other necessary bits of knowledge.
There is, however, another kind of orientation
that is not furnished by the University, but must
be grasped by the new student's own efforts. This
is orientation in extra-curricular activities.
Freshmen are not eligible for many activities,
such as publications, until their second semester,
but it is not too early to investigate them and
decide just what you wish to do. If you are
interested in intramural or varsity sports
see somebody about it, do not expect somebody
to see you. Other activities range from the
Glider Club to the Varsity Band, they are all
interesting, educational and as much a part of
the University as an eight o'clock in geometry.
In some cases extra-curricular activities may
detract from efficiency in curricular pursuits; in
the majority of cases the reverse will be true. A
well-balanced undergraduate life requires some-
thing in addition to studies.
Borrow a copy of last year's 'Ensian, look in it
for the activity that is most suited to you, then
ac or it. Remember that it is not coming
alter you.

Censorship . -
p OLICE CENSORS, after first grant-
ing permission for the Detroit
Cinema Guild's presentation of the Soviet film,
"The Youth of Maxim," at the Detroit Institute
of Arts, have revoked the permission, with the
explanation that the picture is "subversive Rus-

By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, SEPT. 23. - But for the cir-
cumstance of approaching Philippine inde-
pendence, unforeseen when he became army chief
of staff, General Douglas MasArthur would be
contemplating his retirement from his high office
with every mixed emotions.
He had many good active years to serve before
retirement either for age or 30 years service. And,
like his predecessors as chief, he likely would have
found military life tasteless as a mere corps area
general with two-star rank after wielding the
powers of the commander.
At a guess, MacArthur might have considered
stepping out of the Army entirely when his ex-
tended tour of chief military adviser duty ended.
Yet, Army life is in his blood as it was in that
of his lieutenant general father before him. He
was raised to the lilt of a garrison bugle and
the thud of marching columns. Leaving it for
would be hard for him.
THE PHILIPPINE mission, to which President
Roosevelt has detailed MacArthur, offers him
an out. He is not slated for the role of master
drill sergeant in the islands; but aide in the
shaping of insular policy in a connection that con-
ceivably may have in future a deep influence on
world history in general, on the question of
peace in the Pacific in particular. MacArthur's
name could become an important one in great
affairs of the future in such a role.
The islands may prove the key to problems of
the Pacific. By no stretch of imagination could
the new insular nation soon to join the world
family be regarded as a possible aggressor against
anyone. On how well it plans and makes ready
for its own protection against aggression, how-
ever, could turn the course of history. Filipino
leaders have before their eyes at close range a
striking example of what a vital place in national
evolution the military policy of a nation can play.
* * * * * *
1 A MAN who has devoted his life from boy-
hood to a study of military history in its wider
aspects, the opportunity that lies ahead of Mac-
Arthur must loom as full of dramatic possibilities.
He is a professional soldier in far more than an
ordinary conception of that term.
MacArthur, who has twice proved his executive
ability of the highest order - ability proved both
in the field under fire and at his war department
desk -is a soldier student. It is his life work.
And there may lie ahead of him an opportunity to
render his greatest service, strangely enough, in
the cause of peace, not war.

How Can A Guy Reform?
(From the California Daily Bruin)
THE FRESHMEN CLASS voted yesterday to
wear "frosh dinks." Not because "dinks" were
forced upon them and not because it was a 'tra-
dition" or the thing to do, but just because they
want to.
But there is an element of humor in the notice
of the restoration of "dinks." It illustrates the
eternal delimma of the reformer whose efforts are
repudiated by those whom he has hoped to benefit.
It has ben an ancient cry of some upperclass-
men that freshmen hazing should be done away

President Tells
Industry It Has
Ex-Depression
Roosevelt Dedicates Dam
At Boulder In Political
Speech OnTrip
BOULDER DAM; Nev.,Sept. 30. -
0P) - President Roosevelt dedicated
Boulder Canyon Dam in the Colorado
River today as a symbol of useful
Government work and told private
industry that it must now take over
the "principal responsibility" of ac-
celerating employment.
"It is a simple fact," said the Presi-
dent, gazing over the precipitous 726-
foot expanse of concrete dam below
him, "that government spending is
already beginning to show definite
signs of its effect on consumer spend-
ing; that the putting of people to
work by the Government has put oth-
er people to work through private em-
ployment, and that in two years and
a half we have come to the point
where private industry must bear the
principal responsibility of keeping the
processes of greater employment
moving forward with accelerated
speed."
Accompanied By Ickes
As he delivered this pronounce-
ment to private business Mr. Roose-
velt was surrounded by Harold Ickes
and Harry L. Hopkins, his works re-
lief chieftains who are leaving with
him for a vacation cruise on the Pa-
cific this week.
Mr. Roosevelt declared that the
public works expenditures by the Fed-
eral and lesser branches of govern-
ment had left the credit of govern-
ment "stronger and safer than at any
time in the past six years."
He proposed a state power line from
this project as a "yardstick" to meas-
ure the cost of power throughout the
United States.
The President strongly defended
the countless other Federal projects
of smaller nature now underway
through the Works Progress Adminis-
tration.
Many Benefits
Proudly detailing the far reaching
purposes of human benefit hoped for
from the new dam, Mr. Roosevelt re-
iterated his determination to com-
plete similar undertakings in the oth-
er three corners of the country - the
Tennessee Valley experiment already
underway in the Southeast; the
Grand Coulee dam project nearing
completion in theNorthwest, and the
proposed St. Lawrence waterways de-
velopment, although he did not speci-
fy the latter three proposals.
"Today marks," he said, "the offi-
cial completion and dedication of
Boulder Dam, the first of four great
Government regional units."
The President recalled that Senator
Johnson of California, and Phil
Swing, former representative from
California, started the legislation
which made the dam possible.
