Take Hypocrisy
Out Of Football...
T WOULD PROBABLY have oc-
cured to few, before this week, to
speak of the "enlightened South," but the recent
action of most of the Southern schools which have
football teams is certainly the most progressive
in the country..
The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Associa-
tion first voted to give its athletes board, room,
and tuition, and now the more important South-
eastern Conference has voted for open financial
aid through scholarships.
The indignant, lily-white outcries of Notre Dame
and Ohio State officials after the charges of sub-
sidization made by George Owen, Sr., of the Mass-
achusetts Institute of Technology, are ridiculous.
Even the comparatively casual follower of inter-
collegiate football is well aware of the bitter cat-
and-dog battle that goes on between universities
for the services of the best football players. It is
true from coast to coast.
Once in a while there is a school which does
not follow this practice; for example, Swarthmore.
But no one ever hears of Swarthmore's football
teams, nor does its team make over $100,000 a
year playing football.
But if a school wants to make large sums
at football, and thus provide for the rest of an
ample athletic program and perhaps have some
left over for other purposes, it is necessary to
get out and fight militantly for players good
enough to earn those sums. One notable charac-
teristic of the plan of these Southern schools,
then, is its abolition of hypocrisy.
But furthermore, it is only fair that the Uni-
versity should provide for the education of those
men who earn for it tens of thousands of dollars
a year.
Authoritative figures indicate that 70 per cent of
Big Ten athletes are working their way through
school. It is asking too much to demand that an
athlete practice daily, earn his board and room,
and attend successfully to his scholastic work sim-
ultaneously. Other students are not expected to
do it, nor are other students attracting thousands
to the stadium at from two to four dollars a head.
In the interests of fair play and in opposition
to hypocrisy we urge the adoption of the "South-
ern plan" in the Big Ten and throughout the
nation.
To Be, Or
Not To Be ...
THE HOPE of indefinite prolonga-
tion of life was held out to man-
kind last week by Dr. Alexis Carrel, great research
medical authority of the Rockefeller Institute.
From Ann Arbor scientists, Dr. Carrel's predic-
tions drew comments that were conflicting to
say the least. However, one aspect of his address
to the New York Medical Academy was especially
interesting: that a great doctor is beginning to
think in terms of prolonging life and is actually
experimenting in that direction.
We are inclined to agree with the University
Hospital doctor who believes Dr. Carrel's remarks
are "a little far fetched." But on the other
hand, there is much truth in Dr. Carrel's state-
ment that what seems fantastic today is very
often the reality of tomorrow. Considering Dr.
Carrel's famous reputation as a scientist, Dr. Ira
Loree's remark - who are we to say he is not
working on a real possibility? -is quite justified.
Any medical man is wholly within his bounds in
expressing an opinion on the subject.
We would like to believe that Dr. Carrel has

Socialized Medicine
Is Workable.. .
ALTHOUGH the University team lost
the debate on the subject of so-
cialized medicine, they did perform the service
of bringing this question, which will soon have
to be answered, before the public.
There is a strong opposition to the plan of
furnishing medical care to all at the expense of
the state, especially among the medical profession
itself, but it does seem that this is one phase of
social inurance that is workable. If a movement
like the Townsend Plan can gain such a strong
support, it is almost certain that some forms of
social insurance are going to be enacted.
The question of whether socialized medicine
will work can be answered in some measure by the
example of the University Health Service. Each
student pays a "tax" at the time he registers and
in return receives any normal medical attention
that is required during his residence.
Next to subsistence, medical attention is one of
the most important needs of mankind; improving
business conditions are assuring us of the former,
soclalized medicine could assure us of the latter.
As Others See It
The Old Jingoism
(From the Chicago Tribune)
PROBABLY most Americans who give any atten-
tion to our foreign relations have by now come
to realize that in one important direction changes
have occurred which may compel a change in the
nation's attitude and policy. The actual control
of Japanese policy seems to have passed out of
parliament and civil authority into the hands of
a military and naval hierarchy. The civil leaders
and officials with whom, under the popular con-
stitutional forms, we have dealt have retreated into
the background. We confront not the civilian but
the soldier, not principles and modes of thought
and interests familiar to and shared by us and
all other nations enjoying civil constittional gov-
ernment, but the ethics and objectives of military
power and ambition.
This is a phenomenon which places our rela-
tions with Japan on a very different footing. It is
of utmost moment to us that we understand it and
its implications.
We are aware, of course, of the more immediate
and obvious objectives of Japanese policy under
the existing regime. We know the conditions
which influence forceable expansion, the need for
resources of coal, iron, and food supply. There
is a good deal of sympathy among practical Amer-
icans for Japanese needs in this field. There is
also recognition, among those who consider such
matters, of defensive strategic considerations un-
derlying Japanese policy. But the scope and pur-
pose and ambition conceived in the imagination
of the present masters of Japanese policy and
action seem to be far wider than these allow-
ances extend. Let us quote, for example, from a
pronouncement by Maj. Gen. Hayao Tada, com-
mander of the Japanese forces in northern China.
The pronouncement cannot be dismissed as an ir-
responsible utterance, for Gen. Tada is high in
the hierarchy shaping Japanese policy and con-
duct at this time, and no one can seriously think
so significant an utterance was without authority.
"Ever since the occidentals," writes Gen. Tada,
"penetrated into the Orient the attitude of the
powers toward China has been one aiming at her
partition, or advocating international control, or
attempting to enlarge their respective spheres of
influence, or struggling for concessions and mar-
kets. All these, even at the present time, present
a lively aspect. It is true that such measures of
aggression have changed with the times, as far
as their contents are concerned, but fundamen-
.tally, the policy of the powers has remained the
same, always for promoting their own prosperity
by exploiting China."
The general truth of this survey will be acknowl-
edged by most people in or outside of China, al-
though there are important qualifications. But
Gen. Tada proceeds: "Despite this fact our Jap-
anese empire alone has, in pursuance of her
national policy, consistently adopted the view of

respecting the territorial integrity of China and
maintained the principle of friendship and co-
operation with China for the sake of co-existence
and mutual prosperity between the two countries."
This is the commander of the Japanese armies
in North China speaking, and he goes on: "Let
us observe the international situation that is
changing before our eyes. The progressive change
in the international situation may be regarded as a
movement against the tyranny and high-handed-
ness of the white people. It may be regarded as
the beginning of a racial war for emancipating
colored people, who form the greatest part of the
human inhabitants of the world, from the en-
slaving oppression of the whites and realizing
equality and peace for all the human beings on
earth. It may also be regarded as the beginning
of a spiritual war for rectifying the material civ-
ilization of the west by the moral civilization of the
east."
How this appeal may impress the Chinese we
cannot say, though perhaps we may suspect. Our
quotations are for Americans. They do not offer
much hope that our nation can maintain rela-
tions of understanding and cooperation with Japan
under the present regime. The regime may not
endure, but while it is master of Japanese policy
and action the United States cannot afford to
indulge its easy optimism, its repugnance to
preparedness for defense, its delusive comfort in
drift. With an intelligent organization of Amer-
ican resources, material and moral, for both are
essential, we need have no fear of disastrous
developments in any collision with a militant re-
gime in Japan or elsewhere. But the influences
of pacifism and public indifference upon our policy
are not friends of peace or safety. An America
weak and indifferent will insure war.

The Conning Tower]
POCKET PIECE
Once by that Oregon river
You found me this black quartz head
As clean as it came from the quiver
And better than sword or lead.
A sword lies broken and rusted,
And lead goes flatter than foil;
But the arrowhead unencrusted
Is leaf of the stone and soil.
You said it was too small to weather,
Or never worked far from shore,
As it and the memory together
But sharpen each other the more.
Pretty and proud from the maker,
Hard as he meant to bite,
It sang for the fletcher and flaker:
To keep it was never quite right.
I'll say for the pocket it's ruly-
But locked in an old purse still,
It shouldn't go Indian truly
And suddenly maim or kill.
-DAVID McCORD.
A popular newspaper writer deprecates the cele-
bration of Armistice Day because he believes that

Thanks for the ad.
In yesterday's Times Mr. Chanan John Cham-
berlain, one of many book reviewers who know
a soaring hawk from a dull handsaw when the
trade wind is southerly, wrote about the series
that has been running in The Nation, "Our Critics,
Right or Wr'ong." His piece concerns the fifth and
last of the series, in The Nation dated December 18,
on sale yesterday. Why, incidentally, does The
Nation date itself six days ahead? Is the same
with intent to deceive? Not even the capitalistic
press does that. The Nation's fifth article, by
Marfy McCarthy and Margaret Marshall, treats of
the daily reviewer, known to the trade as book
columnists. Mr. Chamberlain calls them "two
bright girls who have been conspicuously reverent
even toward their own literary editor, Mr. Joseph
Wood Krutch." Then Mr. Chamberlain says: "As
F. P. A. might say:
Oh, Mary McCarthy and Margaret Marshall
Are two bright girls who are very impartial."
We might; but we are capable of adding:
For there isn't a reviewer they've forgotten
To call incompetent, venal, and rotten.
The girls remind us of what Old Hen Strauss
used to say of some man whose name we forget:
"He's the most even-tempered man in Chicago;
always mad."
It is true that most reviewers say Yes oftener
than No about a book. It is also true that they
select, as a rule - often wrongly, we think - the
most prominent book published on the date of their
review. The chances are good that many of these
books are, if not cosmic, pretty good, one way or
another. If a reviewer took the least promising
book every day for a week, he might write an
interesting column. For it is easier, and often
makes more readable stuff, to say No, A Thousand
Times No, than to say Yes.
Dear! dear! It is said that a critic is a disap-
pointed something-or-other. And here we are,
criticizing those who criticize critics.
CASUAL DISLIKES
If I hear it again I warn that I may wire
My congressman to abolish "haywire."

They talk about the good old days of journal-
ism; of great and powerful editors. In the Dana-
Greeley-Watterson-Medill days editors rode on
railroad passes. In the Topeka station the other
day were the private cars of Editors Paul Block,
Cissie Patterson, and -possibly W. R. Hearst. We
hope that Mr. Alf Landon, if nominated, will come
out for a five-cent fare on private cars.

The Naval Conference rejected Japan's demand
for equality in naval strength, so Japan will say
"Well, if you don't want us to have parity, we'll
give up requesting it. Didn't know you cared."
And, as the late Ring Lardner said, "Maybe San
Francisco Bay is made of grape juice."
Perhaps inspired by the City Anthem contest,
Borough President Samuel Levy has submitted to
Commissioner Valentine some rhymes to be placed
on signs with safety warnings. Some of them, for
the benefit of those who failed to see them in
yesterday's papers, follow:
"When crossing streets
'Tis wise to pause-
Obey our lights
And traffic laws."
"Cross at crossings.
Cross with green lights,
Cross carefully."
These are not much good, Mr. Borough Pres-
ident. Last year a boy seven years of age, on his
way to school, extemporarized, to the air of "Au
Clair de la Lune," the following, printed herein
before:
Cross at crossings only,
When the light is green;
Cross at crossings only,
When the light is green.

A Washington
BYSTANDE R
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14. - Inquir-
ing minds have it figured that the
fact committees during the last ses-
sion of Congress had before them
three score or more proposed changes
in the constitution, is indicative of
the restless political mood of the
country, due to the depression and itsl
aftermath. That the number of re-
solutions proposing admendments will1
increase as soon as the next sessionf
meets, hardly is to be doubted. Manyt
of them already are drawn.f
Yet, examination of those pending1
suggestions does not prove them all
to be of a "liberalizing" persuasion.,
Some amendment authors, no less1
than Governor Hoffman, of New Jer-
sey, with his suggestion that the Su-
preme Court be required to pass on
the constitutionality of all acts of
Congress before they can become ef-
fective, obviously are intended to peg'
constitutional interpretation in a con-
servative mold.
IT would not take much stretch of
the imagination to picture the re-
cent business congress in New York
adding some such tail to its "plat-
form." The declarations of that doc-
ument were so firmly pinned to the
Liberty League's construction of the
constitution as it bears on "new deal"
measures, that this remarkable as-
sertion is included in the platform:
"Confidence cannot be restored or
maintained when government officers
and legislators, in spite of their oaths
of office, endeavor to avoid by tech-
nicalities the true intent of constitu-
tional guarantees or deliberately leg-
islate with respect to matters not
delegated to them."
That cap, presumably, would fit
quite a number of Republicans in
both house and senate. They voted
for certain "new deal" ventures at
times which other statements of the
business platform now would seem to
class as wholly outside the constitu-
tional province of congress.
* * * *
T might prove highly embarrassing
not only to the Liberty league legal
talent, but to the lawyers who helped
frame the business platform if, in the
face of their attitude, the supreme
court upheld some of the disputed
"new deal" measures. They are far
out on the limb.
However that may turn out, it was
made clear by lawyer-orators at the
New York convention that the protec-
tions of the constitution, even grant-
ing that virtually all "new deal"
moves yet to be tested were toppled
over, were not enough. Such spokes-
men held that the courts could not
reach to protect from administrative
"<polcy"
That, presumably, is the logic of
the Hoffman amendment. It would
require the Supreme Court to give
its advice and consent in advance to
any change of law.
