THE HERALD
I shall see him in the morning, in the wild tumul-
tous morning,
When he gathers from the corners, from the
corners of the earth,
The north wind and the south wind, and the
east wind and the west wind,
To herald forth the wonder and the beauty of
her birth.
With his trumpet he shall waken, all the sleep-
ing things shall waken,
Till the music of her coming, of her coming
shake the trees;
In his young and haughty splendor, he shall make
the earth surrender
And the old world do obeisance to her advent
on its knees.
I shall see him in the dawning, in the blue and
lovely dawning,
When the winds stand hushed and waiting,
each one waiting in his place,
Then he lifts with gentle fingers, with his gentle,
clumsy fingers,
The little downy blanket from the flower of her
face. ERENE ANGELMAN.

Dear Editor:
It occurs to me that your newspaper is making
a big mistake in not reporting how I don't plan
to spend the $150,000 I didn't win on the Irish
Sweepstakes. After all, wasn't it an unidentified
journalist who once said that if a dog bites a
double negative, that's good for a stick at the

Swimming
For Women.. .
A T LAST the women of the Univer-
sity have been galvanized into ac-
tion on a matter which has for a long time deserved
the attention of the University authorities. This
movement, which is being sponsored by W.A.A., is
an attempt to get funds for a swimming pool for
the Women's Athletic Building.
Swimming facilities for the women are woefully
inadequate at the present time. There is a so-
called pool in the locker room at Barbour Gym,
though it is really little more than an elongated
bathtub - but that pool has been condemned as
unsanitary by the State Board of Health. De-
prived of this pool, the women have left only the
inconvenient arrangement of using the Union pool
on two evenings a week and on Saturday mornings.
In addition, they .must pay 25 cents admission
charge, a price that proves prohibitive for some
who would like to go more frequently.
It is time that the women did have their own
pool, and we hope that this movement will not
end at the collection of petitions which though they
have been signed enthusiastically, are merely a
step in the right direction.
The pool itself would not be prohibitively ex-
pensive, because space for one was left when the
Women's Athletic Building was built. However, at
that time, its completion was prevented by insuffi-
cient funds. Women using this pool would have
the advantages of using the other locker-room
and shower facilities, which are already furnished
- so that the only expense would be the pool itself.
With swimming reigning as one of the most
popular sports among the women students, it
seems fair that they should have adequate facilities
for this recreation.
Germany's
New Moses.
S ATIRES on the fallacies of dicta-
torships are ever springing up but
one of the most pungent and witty was written
about 1803 in answer to Napoleon's dictatorship by
the English, who feared an invasion of the master
militarist. It also proves that the features of
dictatorships ever persist in their evils. Although
appearing in hand-bill form it is a masterpiece of
satire.
The title of the work is The New Moses or Bona-
parte's Ten Commandments. Several of the pro-
visions in this document include:
"And when the great man came from Egypt
he used cunning and force to subject the people.
The good as well as the wicked of the land trembled
before him, because he had won the hearts of all
the fighting men; and after he had succeeded in
many of his schemes, his heart swelled with pride,
and he sought how to ensnare the people more
and more, to be the greatest man under the sun.
"The multitude of the people were of four kinds:
some resembled blind men, that cannot see; some
were fearful, who trembled before him; others
courageous, and for the good of the people, but too
weak in number; and others yet, who were as
wicked as he. And when he was at the head of
the deluded nation, he gave strict laws and the
following commandments, which were read before
a multitude of people and a full congregation of
his priests-
"1. Ye Frenchmen, ye shall have no other com-
mander above me ...
"2. Ye shall not have any graven images upon
your coin. . . which might represent any person
above me . . . for I am a jealous hero and visit
disobedience of an individual upon a whole nation,
and of a father ion the children. and unon the

To the Editor:
It would be well for me to state from the be-
ginning that I have no affiliation with any of the
several fraternities that have recently been dis-
ciplined by the Interfraternity Council. As a mem-
ber, however, of a fraternity that does subscribe
to the Council as an administrative body, I feel
it not only justifiable, but expedient to criticize
the extreme disciplinary measures that it so be-
nignly doles out.
It cannot be denied but that in recent years the
University itself has frowned upon the fraternity
system as it stands, attacking its abuses and ignor-
ing the attributes which make it equitable. For
the continuance of this policy, the University is
doing little more than make the fraternities them-
selves play the accompaniment to their own Swan
Song, under the guise of an Interfraternity Council.
And, unfortunately, the Council seems to be naive
enough to let this policy continue. But in truth,
it is the fraternities, themselves, who are equally
responsible for this condition. While basking in
the approbative glow of the University, they lose
sight of the fact that their immediate allegiance
is to the fraternity system as a whole. They
ignore the reality that, under the prevailing policy,
they will soon cease to exist. Instead, they figure,
"Put the screws on the Beta's, the Sigma Nu's,
and any of the rest! They go down; we go up!"
And so, the Council, proudly awaiting the Univer-
sity's patronizing little pinch of the cheek, put
the screws on!
Fraternities, why not let the University admin-
istrate its own dirty job, or else maintain the
Council as a true Fraternity Council? We're cut-
ting our own throats! tJ.W.H.

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, March 31.-The
" joker" about Senator Borah's
assertion in Ohio of his bona fide
candidacy for the Republican presi-
dential nomination is the qualifica-
tion he attached. He would seek the
prize by "every honorable means"
and "take it" only on that condition,
hie said.
Just what that means, the Senator
has been at some considerable pains
to explain since he hurled his hat
into the ring. He rules out "back-
room" nominations, fixed up behind
the scenes by a handful of party
"leaders."
The kind of a nomination Borah
stands ready to "take" then must be
either the sort flowing from a sweep
of the primaries, giving him a ma-
jority at the start and a first ballot
selection, or a convention decision
arrived at on the floor by the dele-
gates themselves.
rlIHE map of Borah's projected drive
for the nomination certainly
does not indicate any expectation on
his part of obtaining a majority of
the delegates via the primaries. That
does not seem to be on the cards as
s possibility, let alone probability,
which would close one door for him
to the nomination. If anybody but
Wlilam Jennings Bryan has succeed-
ed in stampeding a national conven-
tion itself into a nomination within
the memory of living man, the
records fail to indicate it. So much
for the other "honorable means"
approach.
The Borah declaration in Ohio,
thus viewed, would seem not to have
committed him to any more positive
and definite candidacy than his pre-
vious statements. His willingness to
take" a nomination under the con-
ditions he sets does not change the
factors in the case materially. He
still looms in the eyes of most po-
litical commentators, and, no doubt,
in those of the Republican leaders at
whenm his drive is aimed, as an influ-
ence on the making of the ticket and
the platform rather than an actual
nomination contender.
* , *
ORAH directed attention to some-
thing else worth considering in
guessing how the nomination cat may
jump at Cleveland. He saw "few
scattered chairs" in the senate "oc-
casionally occupied by Republican
members," on the house side "a no
more flattering" comparison, and
only "three or four Republican gov-
e, nors."
It could happen that opposition
estimates of the following of Presi-
dent Roosevelt at convention time
would make the chances of a Republ-
-ican presidential victory very du-
bious. That would not lessen the
Republican necessity for election
spade work to lay foundations for
1940 in the precincts, congressional
districts and states. But it might
influence greatly the presidential
nomination.
"BOOKS :
FLOWERS OF EVIL, translated
from the French of Charles Bau-
delaire by George Dillon and Edna
St. Vincent Millay; Harpers.
TWO Americans have repaid
Charles Baudelaire the debt
American writing owes him. For it
was Baudelaire who introduced Ed-
gar Allan Poe to France, or rather
one side of his genius, since Baude-
laire translated the tales rather than

the verse of Poe.
And now George Dillon and Edna
St. Vincent Millay have introduced
Baudelaire to America, or at any rate
to the section of America which can-
not read Baudelaire in French. Very
few Americans can, really, because of
the undercurrent which flows
through Baudelaire's poetry and
sometimes belies the vaunted pre-
cision of the French language as a
vehicle of expression.
The translation of "Les Fleurs du
Mal" made by these two valiant dis-
ciples is quite another thing from
the usual. For each has preserved,
not only the sense but the precise'
rhythm and meter of the original.
And (still more remarkedly) each has
produced translations which for the
most part are as genuine poetry as
the originals. This is not a simple
task..
Miss Millay has written a very can-
did introduction in which she
sketches some of the difficulties. The
most obvious of course is that of re-
crystallizing another's poetic thought.
Only a poet should translate a poet.
Miss Millay believes. Technically the
most troublesome is the fact that
in French there actually is no syl-
labic accent, whereas in English a
preordained accent sets a rhythm
inexorably.
'ihese two and all the other diffi-
culties seem triumphantly overcome.
The poetry of Baudelaire is sup-
posed to have an erotic, decadent,
terrible flavor. It is the product of
a drug taker who lived for years

Kagawa
To the Editor:
I agree with the Daily editors that the occasion
of the Chinese walk-out was very trivial, but not
quite as -trivial, perhaps, as the average American
is apt to believe. Dr. Kagawa is a Japanese and
for all his cosmopolitan Christianity, that fact
imposes certain limitations upon him. He cannot
help knowing that, rightly, Manchukuo is a mis-
nomer, since only Japan has recognized it, but he
either will not or dare not face the issue. Cer-
tainly a scholar is not bound by a "newspaper
term" and his audience would have understood
him as well had he used the proper name. His
obstinate insistence, even in the face of direct
requests is suspicious to say the least. Couple
with that his statement that Japan's sole motive
in China is to protect her from Soviet Russia and
one realizes that even the best of us have our blind
spots. Dr. Kagawa is indubitably a great leader
in his particular field, but it is only fair to him
and to ourselves that we understand him as he is.

Going To Town-Send
To the Editor:
Sure, I knew all along this Townsend gag was
going at things -wrong end to. Even the name
is backward. The thing should rightly be called
the Age Old Pension Plan instead of the Old Age
Plan. That just shows how dumb and illogical
those Townsend pocketeers are. The idea is 140
years old, so that puts Townsend and Co. farther
behind the times than they realize. One thing they
seem to have the right idea about though is the
way to hold their hands - always palms up. That
shows they're true Americans anyway. Well, we
realize the Townsend boys are getting along in
years and they are just trying to show us how
comfy we can be when we get along in the 70's if
we follow their plan. It's a good plan and is work-
ing swell so far, so why all the racket? Well, it's
good business. "It pays to advertise." And just
think, when it all blows over, of the money they
can still pull their way writing testimonials.

Let's solve this traffic problem once and for all!
First, let's replace the new buses pn Lexington
Avenue with kiddie kars. Then let's move the
Third Avenue El over to Park Avenue, which has
always wanted an El. Next, let's have a good
taxicab strike which will last through the summer
of 1976. By then, the first unit of the new Sixth
Avenue subway (between Forty-first and Forty-
fifth streets) will be completed, and we can tear
down that section of the Sixth Avenue El and
replace it with jir riclshas drawn by natile
coolies from the Bronx. Such a program will posi-
tively solve the northbound-southbound problem.
