To the Editor:

ful Jesus Christ.-Alois Spaniol, leader of the
Nazis in the Saar.

religion. - Professor Hermann Hollander, Nazi
4. Adolph Hitler is the real Holy Ghost. -
Dr. Herrl, chairman of the Prussian Diet.
5. The creator of mankind appeared 2,000
years ago in the form of Christ. Today God re-
veals himself to the German people again in the
form of Hitler. - Trade Paper.
6. In its newly begun chapter of history, the
German people has elected Adolf Hitler as its
champion before God. - Dr. Frank, Reichscom-
missar for Justice.
7. Result of new research: Jesus was Aryan on
both parents' sides.-New Nazi pamphlet, "Die
Herkunft Jesu."
8. The Nazi party has been proved to have
better relations with the Lord in the Heavens than
had the Christian parties which disappeared. -
Baldur von Schirach, Reichstag member and head
of the Hitler Jugend.
9. Hitler is lonely. So is God. Hitler is like
God. -Dr. Frank, State Commissioner for Justice.
10. The appearance of Christ in the world was
the first great emergence of the Nordic nature
in a world tormented by decay.-Dr. Jaeger,
former state commissioner for the church in

-Oh Rudyard, Rudyard sing again

Jane, a well-bred spinster
Who never took a chance,

With a sideland glance,
But the bold newcomer,
Dropping on one knee,
Looked her fully in the face,

has written a letter endorsing Book Sharing Week,
saying that he heartily approves of the aims ands
purposes of B.S.W. "Every one," he writes, "has
among his collection of books many that have
outlived their usefulness and they should be re-
distributed." Well, we have a copy of Mr. Smith's
"Up to Now," and we are keeping it.
We are violently opposed to the sharing of
books. Let the share croppers buy books! And
here is a slightly phony generality: Books that
have outlived their usefulness didn't have much
to begin with. Nevertheless, what books do YOU
think have outlived their usefulness, that is as-
suming that they had any.

has been criticized for its tendency towards de-
structive criticism; we ourselves on the campus,
in surveying social problems have been more will-
ing to sec faults than to suggest roads to action.
Thus, the active idea in the title "Our Tomorrow
- What Shall We Make of It?" suggests that the
discussions will be realistic and specific.

course of our college career, specialized in an aca-
demic field with such thoroughness that we have1

special training we have received, we bear certain

pride ourselves on representing the educated intel-

Michigan Returns

Michigan track athletes will be]

Although most attention has been given to the
chances of one of the relay teams or individuals
to win over other of the country's outstanding ath-
letes, it is particularly satisfying to note how
appropriate is Michigan's return to competi-
tion in these Relays.
During the years from 1907 to 1917, when Mich-t
igan was not a member of the Western Conference,t
it was with Pennsylvania that a close athletic
rivalry and friendship was established, despitet
geographical handicaps. After Michigan rejoinedf
the Conference she could not be so closely iden-I
tified in athletic life with Penn as before, butt
a great appreciation of the friendship of the east-l
ern school has remained.-
Michigan is today one of the strongest trackr
strongholds in the country. It is probable thatc
no Mid-Western school could have supported thei
Big Ten track meet last spring more successfully
than did Michigan. And, as a university whoseI
track teams have shown the highest ability andx
spirit, it is appropriate that Michigan should bef
represented at the ceuntry's outstanding trac:
and field carnival, the Penn Relays.

Civil Service Statistics
To the Editor:
As it occurred to me at the time, it is ex-t
tremely unfortunate that The Daily staff deleted,
that portion of my letter in which I emphatically
stated that I was not opposed to Civil Service Re-r
form. In answer to Mr. Edward Litchfield's very
fair letter (under the circumstances), I would liket
to say that my original letter was merely to protestI
the very flagrant abuse of actual facts. I have1
here before me The Daily article by Mr. Fred War-I
ner Neal which states "while Michigan's govern-
ment is run by 13,500 persons, New Jersey, a state,
of equal population, gets along with 10,000. Thisa
in spite of a difference in population of nearly
1,000,000. I am unable to see where it says, as Mr.t
Litchfield apparently quotes from the article, "theI
population of New Jersey and Michigan are not
far apart." I'll admit that the Michigan state
government is quite inefficiently run, but whyj
