six to one victory, showed clearly the sentiment of
Maryland voters. The Democratic congressman
who was quoted as saying," we now have nothing
to fear, either in the convention or in the election,"
did not exaggerate.
On every front, the President has not only won
the Democratic primary, but the votes he polled
have been, in every case, in excess of the leading
Republican running on the other ticket.
The Daily is not especially interested in push -
ing the reelection of President Roosevelt. But,
unless the Republican candidate nominated at
Cleveland is one of whom we have not yet thought,
or unless some recent and unexpected development
takes place in the national situation, it is difficult
to see how the President can be defeated.
But electoral votes, like eggs, should not be
counted until they're hatched.

A HEAVY EARTHQUAKE today ter-
rorized residents of Szechwan Prov-
ince already in the grip of famine with an esti-
mated 10,000,000 to 30,000,000 facing death or al-
ready dead."
Following this statement in an article by the
Associated Press last week was a comparatively
short and dispassionate account of a catastrophe
of such tremendous proportions that the minimum
number of its victims exceeds the population of
New York City; it exceeds the combined popula-
tions of Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin and is
greater than the population of the entire United
States in 1820.
The article mentions the cannibalism to which
these sufferers have resorted, and tells of frantic
parents who, driven by hunger, are already selling
their children. Millions are moving from the flood1
regions leaving homes they have not been more1
than a mile or so removed from in a life time.1
Thousands of others have been forced to abandon
their river boats in which they have lived for1
years. In the past few weeks, Chinese from 5 to 651
years old have been setting foot on land for thes
first time in their lives, knowing for the first time
what it is to have the feel of the earth beneaths
their feet.t
This spectacle of one of the oldest civilizations ona
earth being deracinated by the millions, whole
cities being swept away, is an occurrence that iss
forcefully provocative of thought. When we looks
back into history, we find this people acquainted
with gun powder when the conquering Charle-v
magne and his followers were satisfied with heavyv
bludgeons. Printing was being used by the Chi-o
nese before the Rhenish towns had begun workf
on the development that was to give them world-a
wide recognition. Astronomical observations werea
made in China which did not occur to the Euro-e
pean mind until centuries later.
Co-existent with this stupendous death toll ande
migration was the plight of three Canadians who
had been fatuous enough to enter an abandoned
gold mine. They had been trapped with the resulta
that rescuers working at white heat had afteru
ten days extricated two of them alive, one dead.P
Newspapermen are sometimes perplexed over thed
problem of how much attention to give a story.s
These two happenings presented no such problem,1
for the three Canadians were given indisputablea
precedence over the 30,000,000 Chinese.u
To say, "Well, that's the papers for you," isn
hardly an adequate comment, for it is ultimatelyb
the American people upon whom the news policy
of a paper revolves. The ironic relationship be-1

tween such stories will continue to occur day inn
and day out, but sagacious readers will perceived
it and realize that the editors are quite largely
caterers to a not too discriminating public. Thusn
a five inch item of universal significance flankedb
by advertisements on an inside page was un-
doubtedly relegated there by an intellectualy leth-b
argic public too much concerned with the battinga
average of some illiterate baseball player.

Lansbury Lecture
To the Editor:
In the spring of 1914 were held the greatest
peace demonstrations the world had ever seen. In
1914 came the greatest war the world had ever seen.
On April 21, 1936 at the University of Michigan
and on April 22, in other colleges and universities
all over the world was held a great student-faculty
peace convocation. Is it to be as futile as the
meeting of 1914? It does not have to be if only
those who are against war will realize that the
preservation of peace need as much unremitting
and continuous effort as munition makers, mil-
itarists, and modern dictators apply to war. To
give direction and force to this effort a student-
faculty Peace Council has been organized with
branches at most of the universities and colleges
in the United States. We have a branch at this
University. It arranged the peace convocation for
us. It is bringing to this campus famous speakers
who have experienced both war and peace and
know the true cost and value of each. Thurs-
day, May 7, we have the opportunity of meeting
not one, but two of the most reknowned men in the
field, Rt. Hon. George Lansbury and Kirby Page.
The Peace Council is trying to do a great deal more
but its future depends upon us, the students and
faculty of this University. Our apathy can destroy
it - our support can make it a great instrument
for the preservation of peace. Let's give it our
support!
-Evelyn Ehrlichman.

To the Editor:
Congratulations, Mr. T.B.M., Congratulations!
Not only do I think and believe, but I conclu-
sively know (!) - I do so simply to please you -
you have already received the unexpressed grate-
fulness of Dr. Blakeman for defending him. I
myself thank you: the Counselor of Religion needs
it! However, you omitted one most insignificant
point in your defense. The Counselor, you remem-
ber, denounced the student's act (and do use the
singular, if you please) as immoral. Taking the
basis of sneakiness for such condemnation, you
leave only an unnamed haze upon which the Coun-
selor might have based his weighty judgment. The
Counselor must have meant that the act was
sneaky, sneaky both colloquially or semi-face-
tiously and seriously. And while smiling with a
certain flavor, the good Doctor denounced the act
as immoral. One wonders at the security that a
smile can obtain for a Counselor of Religion. But
smiles protect our morals!
The Counselor disclaimed responsibility. Oh,
what a moral way to do it! But see here, just
why did the Counselor have to disclaim any kind
of responsibility? Heaven itself is sure he didn't
feel guilty. It is surprising how eager some people;
are to disclaim responsibility when there is no
act, neither real nor unreal, to be disavowed. Sil-
ence should have been a perfect disavowal.
My dear T.B.M., if the distributing of this lit-
erature would have been a familiar part of our
Spring Parley, we should not at all have bothered
The Daily about it. If the student would have
asked for permission before proceeding, all of
us should have been content. But neither of thesei
possibilities existed. Now then, in what manner
did the Counselor and the Professor handle the
situation at hand? First, your statement, "No
issue was made of the actual distribution; it was
allowed to proceed,"' although only half true if
we consider ends and not means, is granted. By
now we know the essence of the Counselor's
method. Morals are an intricate matter, I agree,
but surely not as intricate as the Counselor of1
Religion intimated. Professor Jones, on the otherf
hand, handled the case before him by vigorouslyi

demanding a yes or no answer to one extremely
foolish question, then by sitting down for five
minutes, and then by coming back with a veritable;
brief "tirade" of two irrelevant (we agree on
this) points which no doubt had a prejudice for
background. That prejudice concerns our just
accusation of reformers: most reformers, in their1
zeal to reform humanity, go to extremes, vulgar-
sms, indiscretions, and before unfair in their ac-
ions. This specific instance, we might realize, wasj
not basically a question of reform at home, but1
waving this aspect: Was the act of this reformer
on this occasion, by word or deed, so extreme, so
ndiscreet, so vulgar, and so unfair as to merit such1
arbitrarily and childishly weak, vague, and fervent1
condemnation? Now then, appropriateness is(
an austere, rather cold and strict matter, but
surely not as void of reason as the professor madec
t. The Professor evidently allowed prejudicec
to determine his manner of handling this specificI
situation.

There is little to say about the late A. E. Hous-
man that has not been said. He was one of
the few great Latin scholars, and his fame will
last upon the poems in "A Shropshire Lad" and
"Last Poems." It may be said that many a rose-
lipt versifying maiden and many a lightfoot ver-
sifying lad never would have written a respectable
line without Housman's poems in mind.
Eleven years ago in Cambridge we wanted to see
! Housman; a timorous knock at his door brought
no response. It transpired that he was not in
Cambridge at all that day, and our first feeling
was one of relief, for we should have been mute
or over-garrulous in his presence. But next
day we regretted not having seen him. He was
one of the few members of a society founded many
years ago in this department's imagination: The
Dudless Writers' Club.
But stock exchanging aside, think of the gamble
in the insurance business. You will now listen
to the baritone voice of Wallace Cox:
You buy a policy - and you're betting one of
several things:
Your house will burn down, be burglarized, or
just blown away entirely.,
Your cook will cut her finger, or break her
neck.
Your car will kill or injure two or more people
in a Motor Crash.
You will fall down the Cellar Stairs.
Your dog will attack a friendly milkman.
A pal will slip on a costly rug and sue for $50,-
000.
Your wife will lose a Priceless Gem.
Your plane will crash in the Alleghenies.
P. S. -Any bets? -F..A.
training of the mind and the will to do justice to
each specific instance. Now think again of the
Counselor and the Professor; and think about
yourself . . . Moreover their acts were not at all
moral, to say nothing of their being wise; and to
an alarming degree they were unjust.
What, may I ask, was the dangerous probability
of some harmful fury resulting from the distribu-
tion of that specific literature, a literature that
transcends the common meaning of propaganda?
Only the Counselor and the Professor were ener-
getic enough to look for it; and they must have
flown into a fury when they did not find it. And,
by the way, we have no assurance that they even
as much as saw the literature before they began
acting like children. Consider: If two Professors
boiled over, at least a half dozen others might
have sizzled! But those half dozen were as wise
as the audience.
There was infinitely more of arbitrariness than
of logic in the Counselor's and the Professor's
denunciations. Perhaps only great men could have

made such great mistakes.

DRAMA

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

I.

It is important to remember that
Gilbert Miller, who telephones Mir-
anda at the end of the play and in-
vites her to be in his next production,
is as prominent a manager in London
as he is in New York.
Of all the sophisticated, delightful
enterprises of our time, probably the
one that most intr'igues the imagina-
tion of the Mrs. Mumfords and other
common citizens is the after-the-play
party of the royal-circle of theatric-
al stars.
No wonder, then, that when Ivor
Novello was clever enough to trans-
fer the whole fabulous business-
wit, elegance, champagne, current
celebrities, the appalling frankness of
sophisticated conversation -to the
London stage, and invite everyone,
for the price of a ticket, to come, he
could not accommodate the crowds.
It all has an exotic and enchant-
ing quick-silver quality. Mr. Novello
competes in London for co-honors
with Noel Coward as an actor who
is a brilliant playwright as well.
"Symphony in Two Flats," "The
Truth Game," "Fresh Fields" now
current in New York ,and "Proscen-
ium" are some of his recent successes.
Of them all, "Party" is his smartest
and the most fun. Mr. Novello has
coupled with his wit a human and
warm sentiment quite lacking in Mr.
Coward's hard brittle style. And Mr.
Novello never quite commits the
cheap sin of vulgarity, for all his
Mayfair settings. -R.H.

THE STAGE
AT THE LYDIA MENDELSSOHN
"ALICE IN WONDERLAND"
A Review
By C. B. CARPENTER
The most outstanding aspects of
the Play Production version of "Alice
in Wonde'land" are the remarkable
costumes, the dexterous handling of
difficult problems in the scenery, and
the sparkling rapidity with which the
nineteen scenes are presented. So
outstanding are these achievements,
and so realistically grotesque is the
whole production that it becomes to
the audience a kaleidoscopic pano-
rama of almost monotonously fan-
tastic events none of which assumes
any more importance than the one
which pr'eceded it.
But the play itself is largely re-
sponsible for these difficulties. It is,
in reality, no more than just such a
series; and in spite of the subsequent
dramatic difficulties there are very
few dull moments in the production.
The part of Alice, played capably
by Jean Greenwald, is a difficult one
being that of a contrastingly ordi-
nary human confronting such aston-
ishing figures as The Duchess, The
March Hare, The Mad Hatter, The
Queen of Hearts, Mock Turtle, The
Ace of Clubs, Tweedledum and Twee-

have been twenty fires in University
buildings, seven of which were at-"
tributed to cigarettes. To be effec-
tive, the rule must necessarily apply
to bringing lighted tobacco into or
through University Buildings -in-
cluding such lighting just previous to
going outdoors. Within the last few
years a serious fire was started at the
exit from the Pharmacology Building
by the throwing of a still lighted
match into refuse waiting removal at
the doorway. If the rule is to be en-
forced at all its enforcement must be-
gin at the building entrance. Further,
it is impossible that the rule should
be enforced with one class of persons
if another class of persons disregards
I it. It is a disagreeable and thankless
task to 'enforce' any rule. This rule
against the use of tobacco within the
buildings is perhaps the most thank-
less and difficult of all, unless it has
the willing support of everyone con-
cerned. An appeal is made to all
persons using the University build-
ings - staff members, students and
others - to contribute individual co-
operation to this effort to protect;
University buildings against fires.
