We Salute
The Freshme. .
from far and near to see yesterday's
game must naturally have been very disappointed
with the results, and they will talke their leave of
the campus hoping that tle tean will have better
luck next time. But everyone at the game saw
something which was as satisfying and enour-
aging to witness as anything which has happened
in a long, long time.
The class of '39, proudly wearing its newly adopt-
ed "pots," appeared between the halves, and flaunt-
ed its numbers before the crowd - before the class
of '38 in particular. Weaving across the field in
an hysterical snake-dance, the freshmen gave a
wonderful show of class and school spirit; and by
school spirit we don't mean any of the features
of the not-so-long-ago 'rah-rah' days which made
the college man an object of contempt, and the
butt of innumerable jokes.
No, the spirit exhibited by '39 is the kind of*
spirit which Michigan has needed for these many
years, the spirit of the 'touchdown a minute' days.
When this same spirit has spread through the
whole school, the work begun at Friday night's rally

will truly have been successfully completed.-
The upperclasses may well feel a little abhamed
of themselves, and very proud of these yearlings,
who in a few days have grasped an idea which the
rest of the school has completely missed in a much
longer .period.
.More power to you, '39!
Our Arms
Embargo . ..
IT IS ONLY NATURAL that at least
a part of America's interest in the
Italo-Ethiopian war should center on the effect
our neutr.ality embargo legislation will have on
the parties concerned.
The Embargo Act prohibits absolutely the ship-
inent of arms from the United States to both
belligerents in a war, but provides that the embargo

bow, are forced to obtain modern guns from
any source they can. In part, should sanc-
tions really be invoked against Mussolini, they
will be able to get these from Europe. But an
additional supply from America would be inval-
And furthermore, besides our act being unfair
for what it says, it is also unfair to the little
African nation for what it does not say. The
prohibition affects only those goods set forth re-
cently in a list by the Munitions Control Board,
and that list omits all raw materials. Ethiopia,
being largely rural and agricultural, has no need
for wheat from outside and it is doubtful that she
could manufacture guns if she were shipped the
steel. With Italy the situation is vastly different.
Italy has very few natural resources. She de-
pends almost entirely for both wheat and steel
on the rest of Europe and America. Should the
League members vigorously invoke economic sanc-
tions, one source of these would be shut off. But
under our Embargo Act, Il Duce will be able to
obtain as much of both of these commodities W he
can pay for.
And thus we find it possible that the United
States, through its desire to insure absolute im-
partiality and neutrality, may be aiding the ag-
gressor nation in the Italo-Ethiopian conflict.
Except for what little harm it may do to our con-
sciences and sense of fair play, this will do us
no harm in itself. But, England and other great
European powers may become involved, and then
where will we be? Suppose England should at-
tempt to enforce a blockade of Italy? Then what?
There isone other possibility, however. Should
an Italian army get well into Ethiopia, and Eng-
land then close the Suez Canal and thus shut off
communications and food from the troops of Mus-
solini, importation of steel from the United States
on the part of Ethiopia, with which she could
have guns and ammunition manufactured else-
where, would be an invaluable aid. You can't
fight without bullets, and should such a crisis
arise, the Italians would not have them and the
Ethiopians would.
We point out these facts and possibilities through
no idle speculation, but because we feel that they
are what more intimately than anything on the
horizlon, at the present time, tie us up with a
situation which may or may not involve all Europe
in conflict.
As Oathers See It
Cost Ten Millon,
(From the Coumbia Missourian)
TEN MILLION dollars rained down on young
George W. Vanderbilt as he crossed -the 21-
year mark last week. Ile cooly announced in an
interview dear to day-dreaming office boys and
working girls, that he wasn't going to work for
a living.
He reasoned that with this first installment
to care for his immediate wants and more millions
to come on future birthdays there is no need for
him to clutter up an office.
Tiger hunts and world travel will occupy the
young millionaire, he says, and will provide ma-
terial for travel articles which he is interested in
writing and enable him to collect anthropological
Perhaps the young man emphasizes too much the
pleasure element in the spending of his fortune.
But it seems that a nearby metropolitan paper
takes an extreme view when it speaks of people
who "just naturally get hot under the collar when
they read of ostentationus spending by young
The trouble is that it represents exactly what
most of us would like to be doing. Envy always
creates ill feeling._
There is no reason why a young man with
ten million dollars should compete in a world al-
ready packed with unemployment. If his interest
in anthropology continues it is probable that Van-
derbilt can be of service to science.
When a millionaire makes foolish use of his
fortune it is rather to be regretted that he has
not learned how to make his money most bene-
ficial to himself and to humanity than to begrudge
his ,millions and insist that he "get down to honest

INSTREL SHOWS and circuses around Poplar-

"Did you ever compose a 'spiel' of your own?"
Bilbo was asked.
"I'm in the Senate," he replied.
Constituents don't wait for voting age to
ask favors of 1Mrs. Edith Nourse Rogers, repre-
sentative from Massachusetts. She had a note

LADY NANCY ASTOR, for all the time she spends
in England, is a very live memory in Wash-

The glories of her life in England are recounted

SINCE THE DAYS of Tom Taggart of Indiana,
the Senate has had no member who could
think up a good practical joke, but his colleagues
still tell of Taggart's watch.
He used to bring conversation around to a dis-
cussion of the time. He would pull a watch from
his pocket and maneuver until it looked as though
the other person had joggled the watch from his
hand. It would crash to the floor, wheels and
pins flying in all directions. The friend's hair
would stand on end, and Taggart would look woe-
begone. "
The watch was specially assembled for the act.
THERE were three candidates for a job in the
state of Washington. It was necessary for
them to write their qualifications to Senator Lewis
B. Schwellenbach.
The letters were to detail the applicants' qualifi-
cations for the job. One correspondent made two
mistakes; he mispelled both the names of Schwel-
lenbach and of President Roosevelt.
Representative Ev4rett M. Dirksen of Illinois
was asked if he were a member of any alumni
committees of his old college.
"Yes," he said. "I'm a fugitive from the dues'

turbed the congressmen before they left. They

Many students who had planned to go to the

Class spirit is back on the campus,
the old roaring, raging, skylarking
class spirit that made class games,
Black Friday, Cap Night, and all the
other interclass events the high spots
of the year. It's back on campus, and
we hope it's here to stay.
Somehow, the sight of a shouting,
charging bunch of freshmen on the
rampage makes us feel that after all
the college student isn't as durn blase
as they try to make out at times,
and we're glad they aren't. After suc-
ceeding years of dead pans and sour-
pusses, one is apt to get the notion
that the human race is composed of
grubbing automatons, eating, sleep-
ing, grinding, going through the mo-
tions of life without a single emo-

they'll be on the ball too in no time
at all, and then, with the youngsters

have to watch their step and find
some way of asserting what dignity
they'll have left.

IN THE FIELD, Oct. 5. - (By Runner
to Aaahddis Aahwahwah) Hello,
My air forces appear to be the most
successful units under my command.

Yesterday he fought off two Ital-
ian pursuit planes while on a run to
Aaahddis Aahwahwah, on his way to
get me two hamburgers and a cup
of coffee. When he returned I made
him a brigadier-general of the com-
missary dept. on the spot, and dec-
orated him with the various orders
of my Kingdom.
Poor fellow! Burdened with his
medals, he crashed on his next take-
off, when he was going back for a
bottle of ketchup, and broke his leg.
That wiped out my army air corps and
reduced me to the naval aviation dept.

Black Ace of Harlem, who is all wet.

Smoking in University Buildings:t
Attention is called' to the general rule1
that smoking is prohibited in Univer-
sity buildings except in private officesi
and assigned smoking rooms wherec
precautions can be taken and con-1
trol exercised. This is neither a mere
arbitrary regulation nor an attempt
to meddle with anyone's personale
habits. It is established and en-
forced solely with the purpose of pre-
venting fires. During the past two
years there have been twenty fires inI
University buildings, seven of whichi
were attributed to cigarettes. To be
effective, the rule must necessarilyI
apply to bringing lighted tobacco
into or .through University buildings
-including such lighting just prev-
ious to going outdoors. Within the
last few years a serious fire was start-l
ed at the exit from the Pharmacologyt
Building by the throwing of a still
lighted match into refuse waiting re-I
moval at the doorway. If the rule isi
to- be enforced at all its enforcemente
must begin at the building entrance.
Further, it is impossible that the rule
should be enforced with one class -of1
persons if another class of persons
disregards it. It is a disagreeable and
thankless task to "enforce" any rule.c
'This rule against the use of .tobacci,
within the buildings is perhaps the
most thankless and difficult of all,c
unless it has the willing support of3
everyone concerned. An appeal ist
made to all persons using the Uniyer-
sity buildings -staff members, stu-
dent and others - to contribute indi-
vidual cooperation to this effort toI
protect University buildings against
Notice to all Members of the Un-t
versity: The following is an extract
of a By-Law of the Regents (Chap-
ter III-B, Sections 8 and 9) which
has been in effect since September,
"It will hereafter be regarded asr
contrary to University policy for any
one to have in his or- her possession
any key to University buildings or1
parts of buildings if such key is not
stamped as provided (i.e. by theI
Buildings and Grounds department).1
If such unauthorized keys are foundc
the case shall be referred to the Dean
or the proper head of the Universityy
division involved for his action in<
accordance with this principle. Anyz
watchman or other proper representa-
tive of the Buildings and Grounds
Department, or any Dean department

cial shall have the right to inspectc
keys believed to open University
buildings, at any reasonable time or
"..For any individual to order,]
have made, or permit to be ordered
or made, any duplicate of his or her
University key, through unauthorizedi
channels, must be regarded as a spe-i
cial and willful disregard of the safety
of University property."
These regulations are called to the
attention of all concerned, for their

information and guidance. Any per-
soi having any key or keys to Uni-]

above, should promptly surrender the
same to the Key Clerk at the office
