ajar And
Freedom Of The Seas ...
DESPITE all the hurly and burly
about preventing war, despite all
the neutrality bills that Congress has passed, and
despite the attempts to "take the profits out of
war," the pacifists are still not marshalling their
forces for the eradication of one of the most essen-
tial roots of war.
A perusal of the neutrality bills passed by Con-
gress will reveal that every one substantiates the
fabled "freedom of the seas." Every activity of
the government reflects its continuance. And yet,
even if all profit were taken out of war, even if we
did not try to bind ourselves to neutrality by legis-
lative means, and even if we did hold Olympic
games every four years, the United States still will
have war and more war if it continues to demand
freedom upon the high seas in time of war.
With our modern methods of warfare, it would
be suicide for any warring nation to refrain from
molesting the ships from other countries carrying
provisions to its foes. We must send provisions to
warring countries, and we will have our ships sunk.
For the United States cannot suddenly cut off
its trade with a large number of the nations of
the world upon sudden notice; it is economically]
impossible. We need at present at least 30 vital
products including manganese and rubber which
we must import from the various nations of
the world, and in case of a war involving many
nations, we must trade with some of the bellig-
erents either directly or indirectly. If we did
not, we would be left with industries shut down,
we would be left with our ships rotting in our
harbors, we would be left without steel with which
to build our massive buildings, and we would be
left with hundreds of thousands more unemployed.
Our trade must go on. If Europe and Asia
were thrown into bitter conflict, we should still
continue to import rubber, nickel, and various
other commodities, many of which are under con-
trol of the larger nations of Europe. In payment,
we must ship other goods, for we cannot allow
our gold supply to dwindle away, and this involves
trading with warring nations.
If we demand that our ships be left unmolested
upon the waters we must ultimately come into
conflict with one or both of the conflicting allies.
However, if we devote our efforts to causing our
losses to be shouldered as part of the risks of
trade during war, paying more for our imported
goods to be sure, but removing a cause of war,
if we recognize the ramifications of modern war-
fare and the economic dependence of the nations
of the world, and if we throw out of consideration
the war phrase, "the freedom of the seas," we
would be making more headway towards eliminat-
ing war than all the pictures of the horror of
war and all the strikes in opposition to war can
ever make.
The Vocational
Lectures
r IIE CHOICE of a vocation or field
of concentration is always a difficult
one, and any aid in making the choice an intel-
ligent one is certain to be of great value to the
undergraduate student. Especially valuable is such
aid from a man active in a field of study, a man
who has a thorough understanding of the many
factors which make the student suitable for work
in that field, as well as a wealth of practical ex-

The Informer
To the Editor:
While glancing through one of the city's news-
papers my attention was drawn to a notice in-
serted in the theatre section. It stated that
a picture called The Informer would not be shown
at a local theatre for the reason that the Ann
Arbor Catholic League of Decency objected. It is
rather difficult for me to believe that the picture
is immoral inasmuch as it was voted to be one
of the finest of the year, and also to the best
of my knowledge the national organization of the
Catholic Church has not black-listed it. If the
local Catholics believe the picture to be indecent
let them by all means remain away from the the-
atre. I cannot see, however, why people who are
perfectly capable of seeing this splendid picture
without serious danger to their morals should be
deprived of that pleasure.
-J. H. Dalton, '38.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As explained in Wed-
nesday's Daily, the Legion of Decency's ban on
"The Informer" has been withdrawn on orders
from the New York Council. The New York
Council ruling supplanted that of the Chicago
Council, which had previously disapproved the
picture.
Kick-Back
To the Editor:
The inquiring reporter who took that most in-
accurate census of women who did not know what
the political terms "right" and "left" meant in
a class Tuesday certainly has a crying lack of in-
sight. Where is his sociology and psychology?
Please remember it is the professor who still guides
the course of discussion in class rooms and if he
does not choose to call on the women in the class-
room who know it, please do not consider us ignor-
ant. Sociologically man and woman are equal
in the world of intellect and psychologically the
woman is reputed to have the edge on the male
in the matter of insight: Why be too bright?
Let one of these lazy males who didn't study any-
way, answer an occasional question. Did you, Mr.
Editor of the Daily, take a census of the male pop-
ulation of the class who knew the answer? No
it might be embarrassing to wake the male from
his prolonged nap. I might add that although the
female may be stupid on occasions at least she
pretends to stay awake in class and may with great
straining of intellect gather a few pearls of wisdom
from the masculine mind. Now, you got your kick-
back from the female element! Are you satisfied?

Mr. William Randolph Hearst has filed a peti-
tion seeking to prevent the Western Union Tele-
graph Company from delivery a copy of one spe-
cific telegram to the Senate lobby committee. It
is impossible that Mr. Hearst is the author of the
telegram; it is well known to all who have read or
heard stories about him that he hasn't sent a
telegram since Alexander Graham Bell was in kilts.
Yes, Pahs, it seems odd that no one has written
a one-act play about the elevator strike ... Oh,
yes. "Waiting for Lifty."
In the old days we used to uphold Jimmy Walk-
er when it was charged against him that he was
a wisecracker, as though that alone were easy
enough to prove his incompetence, and as though
wisecracking were easy. When we read yesterday
of the puerile stuff that went on in the House Wed-
nesday it seemed to us that Jimmy Walker was in
a class with Sheridan and Steele. Mr. Zioncheck,
of Washington, said that he didn't object if Mr.
Ekwall, of Oregon, wanted "to make a fool out of
himself"; and Mr. Ekwall said that there was "no
bigger jackass" in Congress than Mr. Zioncheck.
It seems to us that our ole friends Penrod and Sam
were a little too adult to exchange repartee of this
kind.

Mr. Frederick H. Wood, arguing against the
Guffey coal control act, was pitching his voice high.
Chief Justice Hughes asked him whether he would
mind lowering his voice. "I've been trying to do
that all my life," said Mr. Wood, 550 Park Avenue,
New York. We think that Mr. Wood ought to go
on tour. Millions of Milquetoast Americans who
have been trying all their lives to raise their voices
would pay to see him.
The Gals' Union of the Herald Tribune object
to our having objected to saying of the passenger
who rides down one floor that she slows up the
service. "How about him, you old woman-hater,
you?" writes the corresponding secretary. The
proportion is at least ten to one against the gals.
But:
No matter what happens in an elevator,
We are anything but a woman-hater.

By KIRKE SIMPSONj
rASHINGTON, March 1.- What-
evcr destiny may hold in store for
the world in the wake of German
military reoccupation of the Rhine-
land in defiance of treaty, American
aloofness from the new European
crisis is distinctly greater than it was
in those fateful mid-summer days of
1914. It has been bolstered by ex-
perience and buttressed by law.
Yet it cannot be said that the march
of rearmed Germany to resume "The
Watch on the Rhine" may not have
political repercussions in this country.
If war is to come of it, the factors
now shaping to frame the impending
presidential election here could all be
completely changed. For America
no less than the nations immediately
involved abroad, external policy
rather than internal could become the
major domestic issue
T REQUIRES no recapitulation of
the controversy in Congress over
the shaping of neutrality legislation
to foretell a bitter clash of opinion
over whatever executive steps might
be necessary at any stage to imple-
ment that national policy. Even ex-
cluding weapons and direct war mu-
nitions from consideration, as they
are excluded by law, there are rich
possibilities of more innocent trade
to be glimpsed in a new battle of
European giants. Will other neutral
countries ignore them? Can any au-
thority of government be found to re-
inforce a "good neighbor" policy of
rigid non-participation?
For peace-minded folk, however,
the differences of the American sit-
uation now and in 1914 have their
distinctly hopeful aspect. There is a
double-barrelled neutrality act. since
the bill fathered by Hiram Johnson
and closing American financial mar-
kets to war-debt defaulters must of
necessity restrict war trade of any
character in this country. More than,
that, however, the effect on national
opinion of those defaults, now aggre-
gating a billion dollars, of the stu-
pendous cost of the last war was so
sharply illustrated by the size of the
bonus prepayment bill check present-
ed to Congress for ways and means
of liquidation, have to be considered.
BETWEEN pro and anti-League of
Nations factions, "if" if going to
be a mighty word Could this new
snarl have happened "if" the United
States had joined, will be asked by
one side. On the other will be voiced
the conviction that had it been a
member of the league, the nation
would now have been on the brink
of a new war effort.
THE SCREEN
'THE INFORMER' HERE TODAY
Many students have undoubtedly
seen "The Informer," either when it
was presented several months ago by
the Art Cinema League or outside of
Ann Arbor. To these, and even to
those who have not seen it; a rcom-
mendation is hardly necessary.
This story of an Irish revolutionist
who betrays his comrades is hardly
the movie that ordinarily comes from
Hollywood. It was expected that the
picture would be nothing more than
a program filler, until a flood of criti-
cal opinion established it as probably
the best American film of last year.!

Ford's directing combinedto bring
