clear.

Rather, it is that administrative group

which controls the purse-strings.
One scarcely need defend the worth of a course
on war, and its importance to the student who
is exactly the right age to be asked or, rather,
compelled to go kill and be killed. The excuse
offered by the Northwestern finance committee
appears even more feeble when one surveys the
list of courses for which it does, quite easily, find
money. Every university offers such courses as
Ancient Roman Coins, the Poetry of Racine, and
many others which may or may not be interesting
or useful, but most certainly possess the prime
quality of not putting "wrong" ideas into any
immature minds.
Determined Northwestern students have begun
the circulation of petitions, reiterating their desire
for such study. We hope their interest in war is
strong enough to force the finance committee to
reconsider its disquieting decision.

NIGIT EDITOR: CLINTON B. CONGER
The President
Is OnThe Spot..
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT seems to
have put his foot in it. The past
two weeks for him have been anything but a bed
of roses.
First was his annual message to Congress "on
the state of the Union." This message, trasi-
tionally supposed to be an accounting to Con-
gress of the domestic situation, turned out to be
nothing of the sort. The first part of it was
devoted entirely to foreign affairs, and the second
part was of a political nature, praising the New
Deal in generalities that were rather glittering.
Nothing was said whatsoever about such perti-
nent problems as unemployment, continuance of
relief, governmental spending, business conditions
and actual progress of recovery agencies. The
President was criticized on this score not only
by Republicans, but by members of his own party
and such allegedly disinterested parties as Walter
Lippman.
Then along came the Supreme Court and de-
clared the pet Roosevelt farm recovery agency -
the AAA --unconstitutional. Thousands of per-
sons were thrown out of work, millions of dollars
were spent for naught, and, still more important,
millions of dollars are still due on AAA contracts.
The decision undoubtedly reflected adversely on
the President, and its political effects cannot
help but do damage to the New Deal cause. The
Supreme Court is in the eyes of a great many
Americans sacred and almost incapable of error.
And then, even as the high court was handing
down it momentous decision, the Presidet's bud-
get message was read to the House of Represent-
atives and the Senate. The message did not, as
budget messages have in other years, transmit
a complete budget. The President said he coulel
not tell Congress how much he would need to run
the government until he had had more time to
view the situation. Although he did approxi-
mate a deficit for the coming year -one billion
dollars--he remained silent on the question of
relief expenditures. And what budget he did
submit maintained its "irregular budget" - that
;count kept for recovery measure expenses -
was in no sense of the word balanced.
This message also drew fire from all directions,
and alleviated none of the sharp criticism con-
tinually levelled at the unusually high governmen-
tal expenditures. It is also extremely doubtful
f the President's recent Jackson Day dinner
speech will be received kindly by the nation as
a whole.
Poor Mr. Roosevelt. He certainly has not been
getting the breaks. With an election coming up
fast, he will have to do some mighty quick think-
ing. The country awaits, his next move with as
much anxiety as there is certainty that he will
make one. Both politics and statesmanship
demand it.
But whatever it is - proposal for a constitu-
tional amendment, .reduction of the budget or
another appeal to the people -if it suffers the
fate of the President's actions in the past two
weeks, he will be in a bad way. The President
is on the spot.

There Is One Born Every Minute
To the Editor:
Barnum was right. There is one born every
minute. In this case it is the so-called reporter
who wrote the article in the Daily, just before
the recent vacation, concerning the two students
requiring dogsleds to repair to their homes in
Ironwood, Michigan. This individual has been a
victim of mis-information, as any of the many
former University students from Ironwood can
testify. Such gullibility is to be regretted due to
the fact that the reporter is a student in the
University of Michigan. However, the ignorance
of the average inhabitant of Southern Michigan
concerning the Upper Peninsula is appalling. To
most residents of this section, the Upper Penin-
sula is a remote, barren, inaccessible region in-
habited by Eskimos or Indians.
A true reporter is supposed to secure facts upon
which to base his article. A building is no
stronger than its foundation. Data secured from
hearsay by a gullible reporter is poor material
for a news article, especially "front-page stuff."
Here are a few facts that appear to have been
overlooked.
Ironwood, in Gogebic County, at the western
gateway of the "Land of Hiawatha" is one of the
largest cities in the Upper Peninsula. The 1930
census reports give it a population of 14,299. It
is the center of one of the richest iron ore sec-
tions in America. Here are several large iron
mines, among them, the deepest iron ore mine
in the world.
Ironwood is 656 miles by automobile from Ann
Arbor. Snow fighting equipment in the Upper
Peninsula is of the very best and all National,
State and most County highways are plowed and
kept in good condition throughout the winter.
Regardless of the snowfall or temperature, auto-
mobile and bus travel is seldom at a standstill.
Trains leave Detroit and Chicago daily to all
points in the Upper Peninsula. The Chicago and
Northwestern Railway has daily Pullman service
between Chicago and Ironwood.
This bit of information, based on fact, explodes
the myth of the necssity of dogsleds to insure
arrival at Ironwood and other large towns in the
"Land of Hiawatha,"above the straits, in winter.

Rogsevelt And Fascism
To the Editor:
In reference to the editorial entitled "State of
The Union" which appeared in the issue of The
Daily on January 7, I might say that you omitted
a very important point in the analysis of Presi-
dent Roosevelt's message last Friday night. This
was the fierce attack on fascism made by Mr.
Roosevelt. You only mentioned this in passing
but I consider it so important that if our execu-
tive had said nothing else, the speech would still
be a landmark in the defense of democracy against
the encroachinig fascist groups in this country.
For his tirade against fascism concerns this land
of ours just as well as it did those nations which
now suffer under the heel of the autocratic
fascist rule.
Your editorial implied that this part of the
message had nothing to do with the state of
the Union. Well, it has. The American Liberty
League, composed of most of our leading indus-
trialists, most of whom are reactionary Eastern
Republicans, along with the Democrats who sup-
ported Roosevelt in 1932 such as Raskob, Smith
and the DuPonts, should be recognized as a poten-
tial fascist force in this country, belying its sacred
name. Thus President Roosevelt in his attack
on this and similar groups has helped the cause
of anti-fascism in America.
The rest of your editorial was, in the main,
quite true. The President neglected to tell us
vital facts about the state of the Union. This
was simply because he was afraid to. As you

say it was largely a campaign speech and if,
for example, he had quoted the A.F. of L. figures
on unemployment (roughly eleven millions) in-
stead of saying as he did "several" millions, it
certainly would not have furthered his reelection
hopes.
But the Republican party has nothing more
constructive to give us. In fact if the American
Liberty League, which is supporting the Governor
of Kansas in the Republican nominating con-
vention, wins, the danger of fascism is grave.

THE SCREeN
AT THE MICHIGAN
REVUE DE PAREE and
"THE GREAT IMPERSONATION"
The three stars would be too much
for the picture alone, but parts of
the accompanying stage show stand
out enough to raise the general rat-
ing of the program. In the Revue
four acts are deserving of special
mention.
First, Ming and Toy, billed as a
Chinese pair. Ming playsthedaccor-
dion and other instruments, and Toyj
sings - she can really sing. They
were the hit of the show and got more1
applause than we've heard in the
Michigan in some time.hSecond hon-
ors go to the funnyman and his
monkey -especially the monkey for
it is smart enough to cause the evo-
lutionists some more worries. ThirdC
place to the girl who did the con-
tortionist dance, and fourth to the
four Marvels.j
The silver venus act might wellj
have been left out of the program,1
for it didn't add anything, and Nicki,
might have used the accent she
adopted in the Hi-Lo club. The chor-
us was satisfactory. The lady ma-,
gician was also good and succeededj
in getting over some tricky ones.
"The Great Impersonation," the
movie which stars Edmund Lowe,
with Valerie Hopson, Wera Engels,
and Spring Byington, is a mystery
thriller but the melodrama part is
somewhat overdone in the screams
that are supposed to come from a
ghost, as well as a bit unconvincing1
in other parts.
The story concerns Sir Everett (Ed-a
mund Lowe) who has escaped to Af-
rica after killing a disappointed suitor;
of his wife. She remains in their
English castle and is out of her
mind. We find Sir Everett a con-
firmed alcoholic just as he meets
an Austrian Baron who is his exact
double. The latter (also Edmund
Lowe) is an agent for a mighty mu-,
nitions ring and promotes wars, but;
has been banished from his country
because of a duel. The baron decides
to kill Everett and take his place,
thus being able to return to civili-
zation.
We next find the Lowe in England
preparing to go back to his home andi
wife, where headquarters of the mu-
nitions ring that hopes to cripple
England are established. Lowe is
now taking the part of the baron
pr tending to be the Englishman.
Things get along at the castle, with1
sundry screams from supposed spir-
its, but he wins again the love of the
wife of Sir Everett. In between times
he is nearly murdered. Princess
Stephanie (Wera Engels the wife of
the man that the baron killed, is also
in the background and eventually
brings about the denouement, which
we'll omit, for you to discover for
yourself. It's generally a fairly en-'
tertaining show but overly compli-
cated and lacking in accuracy. For
example we saw a model A Ford in
what was supposed to be 1914, and the
men and women wore the latest style

Louis A. Hopkins, Secretary.
Attention of all Concerned, and
Particularly Those Having Offices in
Haven Hall or the Wester'n Portion of
the Natural Science Building, is called
to the fact that parking cars in the
driveway between these two buildings
is at all times inconvenient to other
users of the drive and sometimes re-
sults in positive danger to other dri-
vers and to pedestrians on the diag-
onal and other walks. You are re-
spectfully asked not to park there
and if members of your family call
for you, especially at noon when traf-
fic both on wheels and on foot is
heavy, it is especially urged that the
car wait for you in the parking space
adjacent to the north door of Uni-
versity Hall. Waiting in the drive-
way blocks traffic and involves con-
fusion, inconveniehce, and actual
danger just as much as when a person
is sitting in a car as if the car is
parked emptly.

Woman Seriously
CInjured In Crash
Miss Josephine Nash, 26 years old,
of Route 1, Dexter, had three upper
teeth broken off and suffered lacer-
ations of the lower lip and one of
her legs as a result of a collision at
Dexter and Maple roads just west of
the city of the car she was driving,
with a car driven by Donald V. Hall,
Ypsilanti. Miss Doris Kingsbury, 14,
also of Dexter, who was riding with
Miss Nash, suffered from a slight
cut on the forehead.
Both women were treated for their
injuries at the University hospital
and then released. Hall and W. L.
Frank, his companion, were unin-
jured.
Both cars were driven into the
ditch when Hall's machine, coming
out of a filling station and headed
north in the intersection, was struck
by Miss Nash's car, Sheriff's depu-
ties said.
No other injuries were reported to
the sheriff's office or the police sta-

Yesterday the Sun's Mr. Ward Morehouse quoted
Miss Mary Boland as saying that at the age of
fifteen she played with Ward and Vokes; she
didn't remember the name of the play. Was it
"Percy and Harold?"
In Sunday's New York Times Review of Books
Mr. Percy Hutchinson reviewed Mr. Robert
Nathan's "Selected Poems." He spoke of "his
delicate ear for rhymes," and rightly. But he
says "we cannot countenance such an atrocity
as the rhyming of 'pour' and 'adore."' Our con-
viction is that Mr. Nathan's ear for rhymes is
delicate, and that Mr. Hutchinson's is not. What
in the name of Tom Hood and Andrew Loring,
is wrong with "por" and "adore" as a rhyme?

There will be suns forever flaming across the skies
forever red
In the land where young and old are soon or later

Until the dawns that come forever wake no more

And the dawns come on forever, and the twilights
follow dawn,
And the hearts of young- and old are empty as a
well too often drawn -
In the land where sunrise kindles the thirsting
and the lust
Of those whose wine is water and whose bread a
mouldering crust. HARLAN.
