the path to inflation. Only the most cautious
planning of expenditures will prevent a wild and
uncontrollable rise in prices. And the only trouble
with that will: be that the people whose need is
the greatest will not have the money to pay them.
Even if the farmers are able to save their property,
they would have no money left, and they could
not find a market for their crops.
That is the picture conjured by the Frazier-
Lemke measure. The bill should be defeated.

PAGAN
This year, I thought, the spring will have no heart
To spread her beauty on the broken land
That has been hurt and all but wrenched apart
By winter's icy-veined assassin hand.
At grief so deep, and wounds so raw and recent,
The tender May must pause and weep awhile-
But May, alas, is swift, and scarcely decent,
And like a wanton smiles her careless smile.
She cannot weep who never has known grief;
She rushes in where angels hesitate;
She is a child of joy;,her time is brief;
With wine of life she is inebriate-
The astonished earth forgets to grieve, beguiled
By the bright eflontery of this pagan child.

Coupe And See
for Yourself.. ..
BRING YOUR PARENTS, your bro,
thers and your sisters, and if there
are a few spare aunts and uncles of '06 or there-
abuts at home, bring them too. In fact bring any-
body who knows a couple of good old traditional
Miohigan songs or likes to hear them sung.
Where? The place is the General Library steps,
the time is 7 p.m. Friday, and the event is the In-
terfraternity and Union Sing.
The popularity of mass sings in Ann Arbor has
grown tremendously in the last few years. Success
this year would just about completely establish the
Interfraternity and Union Sing as a worthwhile
tradition on this campus.
All winter the harmonious voices of this great
student body have been confined to the showers.
Perhaps there is no better place to practise "I
Want to Go Back to Michigan" and other great
airs dedicated to this University but when it comes
to making one's public debut, there is no better
place than the Library steps on a balmy spring
evening, and there is no better occasion than the
Sing, where one can be reasonably sure that there
are no Ponselles or Tibbetts secreted about.
Although the Sing is being sponsored by special
groups, there will be plenty of mass singing for
the entire student body. And you will undoubtedly
enjoy the various fraternity songs.
A barber-shop tenor or a fog-horn bass will be
just as welcome as an operatic soprano.
They are really great fun, these mass sings.
If you're from Missouri, come over and see for
yourself.
The Frazier-Lemke
Inflatioi Threat . .
rT I II RE is no other' course for any
sane and intelligent American, it"
,eems to us. than to oppose passage of the Frazier-
Lemke bill.
The bill, now pending in a House of Representa-
tives that has shown great enthusiasm for the
measure, would issue $3,000,000,000 of new currency
to loan at almost no interest at all for the purpose
of paying off farm mortgages.
The bill, it is conceded even by its supporters,?
means inflation, pure and simple. When that
measure was before the House a year ago, the
very harmful effects that its passage would have on
the country were well pointed out by Prof. Leon-
ard I. Watkins, monetary expert of the economic 1
department here. His statement that it would,
mean financial chaos still holds good.
When we condemn the Frazier-Lemke inflation,
bill, it does not mean that we do not agree with
many of its objectives. Certainly the lot of the,
American farmer in the past decade has been a
hard one. And the depression left him in a worse
state than it did most people, a state so serious
that it came dangerously close to precipitating* a,
farmers' revolution in 1933.
Farm mortgages, with which the nation was1
saddled, were being, and for that matter, are being,,
foreclosed. And the price of most crops were, and1
are not adequate to guarantee their husbandman,
funds with which to manage his affairs. The con-
dition of the farmer is admittedly deplorable, and
something should be done about it. The AAA was
designed to do something about it, and that or-,
ganization had one or two aspects that might have
worked out, if the Supreme Court had not declared
it unconstitutional. As it is now, the solution may

The question of Anti-Nazi literature distribu-
tion at the Spring Parley has brought forth so
much comment in this column that I feel it de-
silrable to clarify the issue, since it was I who passed
out this material. First, I wish to repeat the
statement which I made from the floor of the Par-
ley at the time the issue arose.
"I wish to say a few words of justification for
the distribution of anti-Nazi literature here this
evening, if indeed any justification is necessary.
I lived and studied in Germany for several years.
I know the meaning and significance of Fascism,
not as an academic theory but from first hand ob-
servation. Therefore I fight against it at every
opportunity.
"I regret having to clash with Mr. Blakeman
for the second time on this issue. Though I have
the highest respect for him I differ with him
most sharply. We students should not have to
apply for a permit every time we wish freely to
speak our minds or distribute literature. This seems
to me to be in direct contradiction to our consti-
tutional rights of free speech and free press. To
my mind the fight against fascism - the dis-
tribution of anti-Nazi literature, is always in
order. May these rights never be curtailed."
Liberal minded critics must realize that either
we struggle together against fascism now - or we
will be forced together in the concentration camps
later. To be indifferent in the face of fascist bar-
barity and destruction of culture is bad enough,
but to hinder the anti-Nazi struggle is to join
forces with the enemy of mankind.
It is perhaps no mere coincidence that at the
U. of M. students are expelled for anti-war activ-
ity, our athletes are pledged to compete in the
Nazi Olympics, and we accept" ...with apprecia-
tion the honor of the invitation ..." to the Heidel-
berg celebration. Perhaps it is no more than ap-
propriate that our representatives be present to '
celebrate the death of academic freedom, the
exile of thousands of professors and teachers, and
the destruction of culture, and that our students
should be subject to discipline for distributing
anti-Nazi literature on the campus.
Faculty and students should combine their forces
to remove these blots upon the University's name.
We have need for a powerful committee to fight
fascism generally and to preserve our academic'
freedom in particular.u r-M.W.
Haile Selassie's Future,
To the Editor:
His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie has been of-
fered a contract to appear as a midway attraction
at the Texas Centennial. At the Texas fair, no
doubt, the dusky Emperor would be expected to
stick his head through a hole in a canvas screen'
and have baseballs pitched at it. More appro-
priately than with the traditional cigar, however, a
direct hit might be awarded with a little chromium

Hypothetical case for law students: A member of
the Society of the Veterans of Future Wars get his
bonus today. Ten years from today war is de-
clared; the veteran, suffering a change of mind
and heart, becomes a Conscientious Objector. Can
the government successfully sue him for the
amount of the bonus, plus compound interest at 6
per cent?
FAMED WIT FINDS OLD MAN RIVER
Take it from your old pal and buddy,
The Mississippi River is awful muddy,
The Scotch here is one-third cheeper
Than that served by a New York barkeeper.
F. SULLIVAN.
It seems that Mr. John Charles Thomas has been
ending his broadcasts with "Good night, mother,"
And now the story was printed that he couldn't
do it any more, because it violates the rule banning
personal communications over the air. It sounds
like one of three things to our cynical ear: Propa-
ganda for Mother's Day; ballyhoo for the broad-
casting station; or presswork for Mr. Thomas,
whose last series ended on April 8.
Mr. Anthony Eden believes that the League of
Nations must go on, but he says that there must
be a careful and thorough stock-taking by all its
members. What signs should be posted on the
League has not been decided. Our first guess is
"Closed During Alterations." For "Business as
Usual" is a little ironic.
MAY DAY IN ALGOMA TOWNSHIP
If May Day ever brought radical demonstrations.
to Algoma township, the reverberations didn't
reach the Quailtrap neighborhood. To us, May Day
meant a time to hang May baskets.
Edi and Babe made the baskets, usually from
scraps of wallpaper, because it was stiff and would
hold the shapes they fashioned. Besides, the
flower designs were appropriate for May baskets.
Spring came late along the Omro road and we sel-
dom could find violets for our May baskets. But
the spring beauties, the May flowers and the
cowslips were out, and we filled the baskets with1
these.,
Hanging the baskets was the real fun. It was
almost as good as Hallowe'en -creeping into a
neighbor's yard, hooking the basket handle over the7
door knob, rapping loudly, then scurrying for a tree
or dark corner behind the porch and waiting toS
see who would come to the door and what wouldt
be said.
Mrs. Owens, Mrs. Eilers, Emma Stocum, Annai
Smith all could be depended on to express the
expected surprise and pleasure. Sometimes we
were called from our hiding places and invitedk
to have cookies or a piece of cake.t
It probably was Edi, since she was oldest ands
most daring, who suggested one May night that
we hang a basket at the Scribners'. Bert Scribner1
and his wife lived in a little place adjoining the
Wagon Farm. He was a quiet man who minded
his own business. Because he worked his placet
without borrowing tools or trading help he wast
considered unneighborly and we were a little afraidr
of him.1
The previous fall he had surprised Babe and me
one Saturday morning picking up hickory nuts
under one of his trees. The nuts had fallen on1
our side of the fence and we felt they were right-
fully ours. He maintained they were his, since the
tree was on his land. We were taught not to argue
with our elders, so we dumped the nuts we had
gathered and while he looked on, over the barbed-t
wire fence, we spitefully kicked the nuts around,t
determined he should not profit from our labors.
To hang a May basket on the Scribner' door
took courage. But Edi led the way and we fol-
lowed. The house had two doors at the front -r
one opening into the sitting room, one into the
parlor. Within a few feet of the house we went intoe
conference, debating in loud whisper whether to
hang the basket on the sitting room or the parlor
door. Then suddenly Bert Scribner burst on us,t
from around the corner of his house. He grabbedt
Edi by the arm and demanded to know who we were
and what we were doing there. All of us ran ex-
cept Edi. He was holding her, but I don't believep
she would have run anyway.r
"We're hanging May baskets," she told him. "And
here's yours." He wilted, took it, murmured a
weak "thank you," and went around the corner in

FOURTH CONCERT I
Friday, May 14, at 830 p.m.
Lily Pons, Soprano" Philadel-
phia Orchestra, Charles O'Con-
nell and Saul Caston, Conductors.
OVERTURE TO "MARRIAGE OF
FIGARO" (Mozart)-This charming
tidbit of an overture is a perennial
favorite with all types of concert-
goers. Merry, scintillating, rollick-
ing but never frivolous, it is the very
quintessence of Mozart - Mozart;
from whom music flowed as pure
and free and refreshing as water
from the coolest of mountain spings.
Played by the orchestra, it seems just
as spontaneous today as when it was
first performed, 150 years ago last
May 1. Yet it is as perfect from a
technical standpoint as from an ar-
tistic; written in the strict classical
form, it is as excellently constructed
as any Beethoven movement, evolved
only with much difficulty and delib-
eration. Truly, Mozart's genius was
the most natural the musical world
has ever known.
PAMINA'A AIR FROM "THE
MAGIC FLUTE" (Mozart) - This
aria, from another great Mozart
opera, is sung by Pamina, who, not
knowing her lover, Tamino, is for-
bidden speech with any woman, be-
wails his apparent neglect of her.
ALLELUIA FROM "EXSULTATE
JUBILATE" (Mozart) - This joyful
song, constructed upon a text of one'
word, "Alleluia," constitutes the final
movement of the motet, written by'
Mozart in 1773.
SYMPHONY No. 1 IN C MAJOR,
OP. 21 (Beethoven) - Unlike Mozart.
who wrote his first symphony at the
age of eight, Beethoven was thirtyJ
years old when this, his first sym-
phonic work, was completed. Over-
shadowed as it is by the towering1
structures of the later and more ma-
ture symphonies, its importance as a
symphonic work in its own right is1
often underestimated. Evidences of
the influence of Beethoven's sym-
phonic predecessors though there are,
as in the Haydnesque introduction to
the first movement, or in the Mozar-_
tian finale, Beethoven was approach-t
ing his musical maturity, and oc-
casionally the Beethoven of the "Er-
oica" appears above the surface of
the classical stream. The first move-<
ment, Adagio-Allegro Con Brio, after
an harmonically unprecedented
opening settles down to run its
course in true classical style. The1
theme of the second movement,
marked Andante, is treated in a way
which reflects Beethoven's thorough
contrapuntal training. The third
movement, although marked Menu-I
etto, is in point of fact a true Beeth-
oven Scherzo. The finale, with its1
faltering ascending scale in the in-
troduction, is marked Allegro MoltoI
and concludes the symphony in a1
robust, vigorous fashion.
INTRODUCTION TO ACT III OF
"LOHENGRIN" (Wagner) - This
bustling, jubilant piece of music sets
the mood for the marriage of Elsa
and Lohengrin which immediately
succeeds it.I
CANOPE (Debussy) - Taken from
Debussy's Second Book of Preludes
and transcribed for orchestra by
Charles O'Connell, Associate Con-
ductor of the Philadelphia Orches-
tra, Canope is an attempt to paint ine
music the vision of a distant yet
brilliant star known as "Canopus."'"
The full modern orchestra is used inf
a manner which agrees with ande
enhances the iridescence of De-
bussy's music.
MINSTRELS (Debussy) - Min-
strels, whose title is self-explanatory,c
is another transcription by Mr. O'-t
Connell of a Debussy prelude. It,t
too, is rich in harmonic and orches-
tral color, constituting a charmingt
companion piece to Canope.t
BELL SONG FROM "LAKME"'
(Delibes) - This aria, sung by Lak-~
me at the opening of the second actt
of the opera, tells of a lovely maid-
en, roaming in the woods, who flies
to the aid of a youth set upon by

wild beasts. The silver bells upon
her wand sound a protective charm,
which, since that day, are some-
times revoked by the stirring of a
gentle breeze.
CHORALE AND FUGUE IN Di
MINOR (Zemachson) -Arnold Ze-1
machson was born in the province ofC
Vilna in 1892, came to America in
1910, and continued his musical stu-
dies in New York City, where he now
lives and composes. This Chorale
and Fugue, written in 1926 and dedi-

MAY FESTIVAL-FIRST CONCERT
By MARY JANE CLARK
Ever with the sense of the dra-
matic, Leopold Stokowski built a pro-
gram with each of the far ends of the
earth. It was given last night in Hill
Auditorium in the first of the series
of programs which constitute the far-
flung May Festival, and the opposite
ends of the earth which he used were
Johann Sebastian Bach and Richard
Wagner. The one represents the
highest and most noble in the entire
realm of absolute music while the
other, though it would displease him
to hear it, has left the world a heri-
tage of unsurpassed program music.
Mr. Stokowski 's intelligent orches-
tration of Bach raises the art of
transcribing to an almostunattain-
able height, There is never the sin
committed of excess coloring nor are
the transcriptions ever over-harmon-
ized. Using all the faculties of the
modern Symphony orchestra, Mr. Sto-
kowski at the same time respectfully
obeys the unspoken-yet-evident de-
sires of the master for simplicity.
This command recognized makes for

an interpretation of Bach that even
the composer himself in his most
imaginative days, could not have
hoped nor have dreamed _ for. Tile
simplicity of the arrangements gives
the stage to the contrapuntal effects,
and never; interferes with the grace-
ful entrances and the final triumph-
ant union of all the voices in a fugue,
or the wonderful, "fundamental" feel-
ing of a firm beginning or a re-estab-
lishment of faith in life.
And what a wealth of beauty and
variety there was in that group of
compositions by Bach! Each one com-
peted with the next for first place in
favor, but Bach is always Bach and
to love the Passacaglia is to love the
composer and his other works as well.
Each work built a mood of its own but
they were all related to the one dom-
inating feeling: soul-fulfillment which
comes with leading a useful, purpose-
ful life. The Toccata and Fugue in D

Conduct In Public Places
To the Editor:
In your editorial May 13, you show you are
openi to consideration of points you do not under-
stand and suggest long and ardous introspections.
I believe there is sufficient evidence, to be named,
in a jiffy.
Most of us have always known if a person gets
into a railroad train or a bus and acts in a disor-
derly manner, perhaps because of intoxication, the
conductor puts that person off the train. The fine
point of this argument is, if one enters a train, he
goes into business with the railroad, and conductors
are compelled, by the company, to evict disorderly
ones. If a couple go into a tea room, connected
with an art store or any business, and act in a
disorderly way, they are asked to leave and their
business is not wanted. When entering the tea
room, the couple went into business with the pro-
prietor. If one goes into a store and acts in a
disorderly way, he is ejected by the proprietor
or if it is a large city store, by the store police.
Owners of apartment buildings act for the best
interest of their reliable tenants. The owners
learn quickly who are undesirable tenants and,
'like the railroads, their rules are to eject. The
same rules apply to office buildings. It is only
hotels that have not been able to maintain the
high standard of business. A large percentage
of hotels are in receivership and the automobile
business, all over the country, is rightfully falling
to the tourist home.
Does Mrs. Florence Haxton Britten earn an hon-
est living? I should say she is not in sympathy
