John Milton once said:
" . . not to know at large of things remote
From use, obscure and subtle, but to know
That which before us lies in daily life,
Is the prime Wisdom . ..
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the English depart-
ment remarked at the Spring Parley:
"We must consider the problems of human na-
ture before the problems of political or economic
systems, and Spring Parleys will go on futilely
discussing improvements in these systems unless
first are discussed improvements in human qual-
The man in the street says:

All of us are aviators flying planes of diverse
and unique design, according to our special apti-
tudes. Our ability to keep from crashing depends
on our ability to manipulate the instruments of the
plane - for which ability we spend years in
preparation. Yet no matter how proficient we are
as aviators, if it were not for a certain law of na-
ture, called gravity, there would be nothing to keep
us from spinning off into space.
As pilots we must develop instrument-knowledge
to succeed. There is, however, no immutable force
to keep us from spinning off into complete ineffec-
tuality up in the stratosphere of "obscure, subtle,
remote" knowledge. We must create that force out
of our common sense, out of our earthy ties in
sympathetic human nature, out of our capacity to
receive, as does Kettering, the simplicity which
is the essential part of the problems of daily life.

If Not;
Throw ThemOut...
ROYAL CITIZENS who are anxious
for peace, nationally and interna-
tionally, should keep a sharp eye these days on
their representatives in Congress and watch how
they vote on the military bills now pending.
Coming on the heels of greatly increased army
and navy appropriations of more than $1,000,000
these measures, if enacted, will build up trained
reserves, in addition to the regular standing army,
also recently increased, at a rate of 1,000,000 men
per year, a rate that is nothing but madness - war
For example, consider the proposals of Rep.
John J. McSwain, South Carolina Democrat, chair-
man of the House military affairs committee and
ii menace to his country. Mr. McSwain, supported
by the high command of the army, would force
upon the country:
1. Enlistment in the regular army of 500,000
men for one year periods.
2. Enlistment for six-month periods of unem-
ployed graduates of high schools and colleges. No
limit on the number.
3. Enlistment for a period of from two to five
months of all men leaving the Civilian Conserva-
tion Corps with honorable discharges. This last
bill could, in no time at all, provide for an added
army personnel of 300,000 men.
It is our firm conviction that Mr. McSwain and
all representatives and senators who vote for these
bills should be defeated. And it is our advice that
every voter watch closely to see how his Congress-
man votes.
The Daily has long contended that the present
army of the United States, with the Reserve Offi-
cers Training Corps and National Guards, is quite
adequate at the present time. As we scan the
troubled horizon of the world today, we are unable
to see where the United States can be involved
in a war, if - and that is an important word -
the persons at the head of the government are
determined to keep us out.
Passing huge army and navy appropriations
and boosting the size of standing and reserve
forces, we have said and we say again, is not a
course that will keep us out. There is nothing like
preparedness for war - when preparedness means,
as it does in this instance, bigger armies and
navies - that begets war. The United States, we
maintain, is fully prepared today, but the natural
thing to do with bigger armaments is to use them.
This line of reasoning does not even take into
consideration the damning armament races which
such increases in defense machinery create. It
does not consider the terrific expenditures with
which this country is already burdened. It does
not consider the several million jobless and hungry,
for whom the money could be spent with much
better purpose.
The people of this country have adequately dem-
onstrated, we feel, their opposition to war -and
what sane people have not? The youth of this
country, especially, through peace demonstrations
as we have had here at Michigan, have served
notice on their governors that they will do anything
to keep out of war.
The wishes of the American people have been
clearly and unmistakably demonstrated. Will
their representatives in Congress follow them? If

not, we say throw them out.

The 'Learned Profession'
To the Editor:
Chalk up one, not for The Daily, or Gargoyle,
but for the New York Times - stiff competition,
I'll admit. The Times of Friday, May 1, features
two stories, one of Williams College and below it,
of the University of Michigan.
President Tyler Dennett, in response to informa-
tion that the Reich Ministry of Education gives
special training to all young men going abroad,
to aid them in spreading the ideology of National
Socialism, announced that the system of exchange
scholarships would lapse in June. "One of the in-
dispensable conditions for study in an American
college is an open mine; it seems unlikely that
anyone who is officially committed to any political
program to the point where he is not at liberty
to change his mind as to the rightness or wrong-
ness of a governmental system would profit by
what an American college has to offer; it is hardly
likely that anyone so handicapped would be con-
sidered here. We do not select our scholarship
recipients that way." The trustees took action
on the matter last February.
The second article deserves reproduction in toto.
"The University of Michigan authorities today con-
firmed a previous announcement that two uni-
versity delegates would attend the celebration of
the 550th anniversary of Heidelberg University
in June. This announcement was made despite
the fact that the Nazi political machine would
assume an important role in the celebration.
"President Alexander G. Ruthven of the Univer-
sity of Michigan stated he believed that Germany's
persecuting of Jews and Catholics had been no
worse than Italy's treatment of the Ethiopians,
and recalled that academicians from all parts of
the world attended similar scholastic ceremonies
in Rome a year ago, which were presided over
by Premier Benito Mussolini."
What can a humble student, not yet initiated
'into the realms of higher learning, add to this
statement, except to say that he has not yet re-
covered from the shock; he can't believe this report
to be true. Since when do two wrongs make a
right? Or is the degree and comparisons of per-
secutions the major criterion necessary to denounce
intellectual despotism? Or have persecutions be-
come an accepted part of our mores?
With all due respect to President Ruthven, I
might add that were I president, I wouldn't only
recall "academicians from all parts of the world"
but would also recall Oxford and Cambridge in
their decision; venerable intellectual fortresses
indeed, and an honor certainly to be lined up with
them in any capacity. I would also recall that
Harvard refused Hanfstaengel's (Putzy) gift. I
would recall an editorial in the New York Times
of April 12 which partly read, "The Bishop of
Durham spoke with hot indignation of the dis-
tinguished university scholars whom the Nazi re-
gime has driven into exile. But he had in mind,
too, the lot of the university teachers left be-
hind. . . . And thus the question arises whetherI
it helps or hinders these opposition scholars and
teachers when the foreign learned world throngs
to the Nazi festivals and. commemorations . . .
The learned visitors who come to Heidelberg Uni-
versity for the June 30 festival will become in the1
hands of the Nazi propagandists a foreign endorse-
ment of something far different from the Heidel-I
berg idea or the university idea; June 30 is the1
anniversary of Hitler's famous 1934 purge . . .
Our international system makes it incumbent ont
governments and their citizens sooner or later to1
bend before a foreign de facto regime. But there
is no obligation on the private citizen anywhere
to have barter with intellectual despotism in a1
foreign land . . . the duty of unofficial opinion to
raise its voice against de facto oppression in any1
However, we have yet to witness Harvard's re-1
naction, since she also acceted the Heidelberg invi-

Because the Call came suddenly,
With little time for packing,
He scarce had time to look around
To see if aught was lacking.
And so he left behind him,
By an unlucky chance,
One single tiny creature,
A little dog of France, -
A little dog, a little dog,
A little dog of France.

Who dreamt the Artist's Dream.

When Rudyard joined the Children,
The Children known as "They,"
He told them Just-So Stories
At the dawning of the day.
And later, in the gloaming,
When pipes were lighted up,
He sat with Stalky and McTuck
And passed a friendly cup.
But, deep in the midnight darkness,
When the Loneliness began,
He felt the loss of a Questing Nose
That is not known to Man,
Teem was an Artist,
Who dreamt the Artist's Dream.
Teem was an Artist,
A Follower of the Gleam.
Teem, who pried for truffles
With his prime artistic snout,
Dug up the finest trophy
From the country round about;
Trotted all along the road
Where Earth and Heaven meet,
And laid this precious treasure
At Saint Peter's feet.
Peter thought is was a toy
And threw it as a ball;
And Teem was saddened that the Saint
Did not know at all.
Teem was an Artist,
Who dreamt the Artist's Dream.
Teem was an Artist,
A Follower of the Gleam.
Saint Peter thrice denied him,
And looked at him askance:-
A little dog, a little dog,
A little dog of France.
But Teem was not to be denied:
And, with his primal snout,
ie nosed his way round Heaven's Wall
And compassed it about.
He dug, as erst for truffles,
Beneath high Heaven's Wall,
And earned his entry to the State
That Nevermore Shall Fall.
Teem was an Artist,
Who dreamt the Artist's Dream,
Teem was an Artist,
A Follower of the Gleam.

Mr. Laurence Axman, attorney for the alleged
whist alleged gamblers, said, "If somebody
charges admission to a theater where entertain-
ment is supplied there is clearly no gambling."
Clearly? When you buy a ticket to a play, it is,
our contention is, a gamble. (If the play is ex-
cellent, you win, the odds being about ten to
one; if it is bad, or you think that it is, you

lose an evening and the price of a ticket or two.
It may interest the attorneys for the bridge
teachers to know that this department has con-
sidered the game too slow for gambling pur-
poses. To our prejudiced notion it is a shade
snappier than horse racing. Gambling should
have about three-quarters luck in it. Take Mr.
Ira Gershwin, as most players do; "throw skill to
the dogs," he says, "I'll none of it," as he draws
three cards to a pair of non-contiguous hearts,
hoping to catch a flush. - F.P.A.

opportunities and looked to it for salvation - wit-

employment, he said, "a longer period
of increased taxation" lies ahead with
those taxes coming "largely from
business earnings."
AS THAT Roper speech without
question was carefully read at
the White House before delivery -
quite possibly by the President per-
sonally since it was to amplify his
challenge to business to step up its
reemployment efforts -it rates spe-
cial attention.
Via Roper, business has been pro-
vided with a 10-point administration
blue-print of how to go about the
stepping-up process. And via Lewis
Brown, chamber spokesman in what
amounted to a government-business
debate of the problem, the New Deal
has been presented with a six-point
list of counter suggestions. Despite
the very conciliatory tone of both
speeches, the reader of both"is apt to
see the same head-on collision of
views between business and the New
As a background of Roper's blunt'
warning of continued high taxes on
business earnings unless the reem-
ployment problem is solved, it might
be noted that within a few hours of
his address, the House had whipped
through the first rough draft of the
new tax bill, three-to-one, with less
than a dozen Democratic dissenters.
And that in an election year when
tax legislation is so highly unpopu-
lar to all House members facing re-
election campaigns.
AND almost simultaneously on the
political front, the New Deal was
doing something else to indicate that
it does not feel under any particular
compulsion to truckle to business as it
surveys election prospects. It was
naming Senator Wagner of New York,
Wagner of 7-A and labor board bill
fame, to pilot the committee at Phila-
debate of the problem, the New Deal
Democratic platform.
That assignment assures an espe-
cially powerful voice in committee for
the labor point of view. It can bet
regarded as designed to strengthen
the New Deal appeal to labor election
day; but it hardly tends to reassure
business as to future New Deal legis-
lative moves should the reemploymentl
bugbear carry over into the next ad-
The House virtually snapped its
fingers at spokesmen for business who
were inveighing against the tax bill
before chamber convention sub-meet-
ings eve as the House vote was taken.
It just so happened, however, for
under the special rule the measure
came to a vote just about then. Yet
as indicative of the judgment of the
mass of House Democrats on what
will be voter reaction between now
and November to the President's
"suggestion" of reaching undistribut-
ed corporation surpluses for tax pur-
poses, the vote was significant.
