Something More
Than Talk...
S IGNIFICANT in view of a newly-
awakened student interest in things
political is the announcement by the National In-
stitute of Public Affairs of 30 scholarships available
to graduate students for an "interneship training"
in Federal government activities.
The expressed purpose and method of these
scholarships, which have been made possible
through a grant of the Rockefeller Foundation,
are worth quoting:
". . . to increase attention and devotion to
public affairs of the youth of America, help the
development of higher standards and career oppor-
tunities in government administration, and to add
to academic preparation for public service the
experience of working with government -officials
holding positions of responsibility."
This to be accomplished by " . . .seminar work,
individual supervision by an educational director,
experience as a full-time assistant to Federal
government officials and round-table discussions
each week with legislators, administrators, press
correspondents, lobbyists, abusiness men and edu-
The significance of this announcement lies not
in the offer of 30 scholarships but in its clear state-
ment of the direction which the new interest in
politics displayed by students on this campus
should take.
Meeting in theoretical discussions of public af-
fairs serves well to arouse interest otherwise dor-
mant, but it should be regarded only as the first
step. Theory which does not lead to action avails
nothing to right the wrongs of our day. Searching
for panaceas or deciding on a theoretical basis
between the parties is a playful endeavour unless
followed by more effective action.
This is true since, before analysis, before syn-
thesis or before remedial action unequivocally
and necessarily must come the development of
one's personal capacities. Knowledge, intelligence
and practical experience are primary goals, and
analysis or synthesis their concomitant results.
Precedent to the choice of a political party should
be the demonstration of one's ability to accomplish
something for that party.
The Institute's announcement, by suggesting
concrete ways in which politically-minded stu-
dents can develop their personal capacities now in
preparation for political leadership in the future,
embodies an important contribution which should
not be overlooked by campus organizations con-

Call By Future Bugles
To the Editor:
In an editorial in The Daily this morning, the
idea of bonuses for veterans of future wars and
a European trip for the future Gold Star mothers
to select the graves of their sons who will be killed
in the next war, was introduced to illustrate the
humor with which the claims of Townsendites for
an impossible stipend from the national govern-
ment is viewed, in the light fo the national fiscal
situation. However, the point which was made that
such movements arise as the result of a felt need
in a group and not by force of some leader impos-
ing a need upon a group, could have-been applied
very effectively, I believe, to the Future Veterans
organization. Perhaps the basis of this new or-
ganization is a desire to show the futility of the
demands upon the government made by Utopian
groups of various sorts, or perhaps the motive is
only to be clever and satirical. However, the seri-
ous aspect of such an organization, it seems to me,
was overlooked. The young people of today, as
far as they can see by indications of international
relations, must face the problem of furnishing
cannon fodder for the next war. Naturally, we all
would like to look forward to a life in which we
will be able to make the best use of our native
abilities and to find a place of service and happi-
ness in the world. What is our outlook and what is
our possibility of achieving these accomplishments,
when we are faced with the high possibility of hav-
ing our normal existence interrupted either by
death on the battlefield or permanent maiming?
Is this organization not calling attention to a fact
which we students are likely to overlook blissfully
in our scramble for committee positions, activity
points, and grades? Do we want our careers for
which we are now preparing to be cut off abruptly
without any regard for our personal feelings in the
matter, merely because our "national honor" has
supposedly been insulted or because some of our
munitions manufacturers and large industrialists
insist on reaping profits from other nations which
are engaged in conflict? What can we do in order
to take at least a step in the direction of safe-
guarding our careers and our lives from this force?
On April 22 at eleven o'clock in the morning, stu-
dents on hundreds of campuses scattered over the
United States are going to gather in meetings,
walking out of their classes if necessary, in order
to express in a definite way their desire for peace
and their opposition to a war which they feel can
in no possible way benefit them or their country.
Members of the Peace Bloc in Congress have said
that these meetings last year over the entire coun-
try gave them increased confidence and spurred
on their efforts toward the passage of neutrality
legislation. Are Michigan students interested in
preventing another war, and will they help their
Congress to know how the student feels about the
bills they are considering, such as neutrality legis-
lation and the Nye-Kvale Bill? -D. E. S.
Lo, The Serious Reader
To the Editor:
When are The Daily's insanities to cease?
I refer to the poll conducted by The Daily to de-
termine whether students found in the library or
in the Pretzel Bell receive the higher grades last
semester. It was a swell joke -or rather would
have been --had it been treated as such. But no,
you accepted this poll as a correct piece of evidence
to counteract the common but "erroneous" opinion
that students who frequent the Pretzel Bell have
low scholastic records.
The "AllA student" who wrote, "So what? I'll
see you at the Pretzel Bell later, too. T'hell with
ya!" is in reality a second semester Freshman who
received fifteen hours of B last semester. He told
me, "I know darn well that the guys at the Pretzel
Bell are going to report grades much higher than
their correct ones, so why shouldn't I" Also, just
for the record, this particular student doesn't know
what the inside of the Pretzel Bell looks like.
I wasn't in either the library or Pretzel Bell the
night of the poll, but as soon as I was told about
it I realized its humorous possibilities. Then my
knowledge of The Daily, acquired in almost three
years, told me that The Daily was going to take -

or at least record - the poll seriously. Why even
go to the trouble of taking a poll to confirm your
already conceived conclusions? It's obvious what
The Daily's purpose was, so why didn't you merely
"poll" three or four Daily big-wigs, and then pub-
lish their replies as true of the campus as a whole?

Motorman's Own Story
My name is Pasquale St. P. McKelleher. I
operate a crosstown trolley on Thirty-fourth
Street. Now, perhaps you never knew it before,
but these crosstown cars are not run for the
convenience of the public. No, sir. Passengers
are a mere by-product. The big idea is for the
motorman to make as many green lights as he
can. So we boys have made a sort of game out
of it. Every time you miss a green light, you're
a third of a ghost. And when you've three-thirds,
or a whole ghost, then you can stop and pick
up a passenger - if you're in the mood for it, that
is. It's a great game. I ain't been a ghost
myself since a year ago last August . . . And
now if you'll excuse me, I'll make this next
green light.

Short Short Novelties
Edson Platitude was madly - well, somewhat -
in love with Ruthie (Toots) Cliche. At their
very first meeting, Edson would surely have kissed
her on her red round mouth; but the author
was unable to decide whether to use "very" with
"first meeting," and "red, round" with "mouth."
So it happened that Edson and Ruthie never met.
The End
EDITOR'S NOTE: For those who are dissastis-
fled with this ending, we wish merely to state
that the lovers eventually met; but Edson never-
got to third base with her, even so.)

"politics" admittedly talked, an in-
formal canvass of stop-Roosevelt
prospects in New England, New York
and surrounding states and in the

natural thing, no realistic portents
of success were dug up.
Ely, to be sure, saw evidence of a

coupled to his cynical implication as

"Desire" is one of those comedies
often referred to as "light and frothy"
and a rather good one, too. Only

successful if it does nothing more
than amuse. But who, in America, is;

Paul Tompkins' program is the best

The Choral Union Concert series
concluded last evening with the pres-

a song recital with Carroll Hollister
at the piano.
Few people went to the concert
expecting a thrill and few were dis-
satisfied with the program as it was
The program was poorly arranged.
Italian numbers in the second group
should have been included with those
in the first group. The inclusion of
so many novelty numbers can only
be understood by the realization that
Thomas knows he must capture his
audience in one way or another. His3
voice can no longer be considered
what it once was. Perhaps that ac-
counts for the simple program chosen
with an eye to pleasing the public.
Mr. Thomas and his accompanist
used neither words nor music
throughout the program. They woiked
together with a precision and ease1
that subordinated neither. Manyr
times, in fact, one felt that the pian-

La Cathedrale Engloutie and Malag-

as an encore.
Despite Mr. Thomas' frequently be-
ing flat, his numbers displayed the
true musician that he is. A tech-
nique that once gave a great voice
still renders pleasing interpretations
to loveable songs. His phrasing is a
thing of envy to every singer and
his enunciation could well be followed
to advantage.
In the Italian numbers his smooth-
ness and control of his voice in soft
and loud passages made his interpre-
tations comparable to the better Ital-
ian singers. His voice has been cul-
tivated so that, high or low, he al-
ways remains in one register with an
enviable ease.
Very often Mr. Thomas' voice is
too deep in the throat, held in by
closed lips. On certain vowels that
demand wide lips his voice breaks
