NIGHT EDITOR: CLINTON B. CONGER
Tell Us ilow,
SM R. HOOVER again has spoken. This
time he advocated, or so he said,
a "program of government reform." If this were
entirely true it would indeed be surprising, be-
cause Mr. Hoover is not the man from whom one
expects "reform," in its commonest meaning.
But Mr. Hoover did not really advocate a pro-
gram of reform. What he did was merely to call
his denunciations of the New Deal by a new name.
Let us look at his "reforms."
"Obey the Constitution," he said. "Stop this cat-
aract of wasteful expenditure. The budget must
be balanced. The increase in debt must be ended.
The Gold standard should be re-established. These
futile purchases of foreign silver should cease.
The laws authorizing the the President to inflate
the currency and gamble in foreign exchange
should be repealed. Tinkering with credit infla-
tion must be ended.
"Genuine banking reform must be achieved. This
horde of political locusts should be driven away.
... The Civil Service should be restored. Return
the administration of relief to the state and local
non partisan committees.. . by wise use of tariffs
protect our farmers ... Give us a government of
laws and not of men ... and so on.
Where, we asked ourselves when we had fin-
ished reading Mr. Hoover's address, were the re-
forms. Hoover's request to obey the Constitution
is certainly not a reform. Nor is it a reform to
stop "wasteful expenditures," reduce the debt,
re-establish the Gold standard, or do any of the
other things the former-president advocated. His
words were but platitudes, and like his other
speeches, mere destructive criticism.
The Daily agrees with Mr. Hoover in some of the
criticism he voiced. For instance, we think the
political maneuvering of the Roosevelt adminis-
tration should be stopped. We think that in some
respects there has been unwise delegation of power
to the President, one example of it, that cited
by Mr. Hoover -the President's great authority
over the currency, the tariff and the foreign
We also agree that foreign trade should be
increased, that the farmers should be aided by the
"wise use" of anything possible, and that "tinker-
ing with inflation" should stop. We think it wou
be perfectly lovely if the budget could be balanced,
the debt reduced and "wasteful expenditures"
But Mr. Hoover, tell us how? It is no reform
to say certain things should be done. That is all
too true. But, for goodness sakes, if you must keep
telling us about these "evils," give us a plan, a
method, by which they can be eliminated.
The Republican party's stock does not go up,
in our opinion at least, when one of its Number
One leaders, says, in a "reform speech," nothing+
more constructive Than Mr. Hoover did at Phil-
adelphia. We cannot balance the budget, reduce
the debt or stop expenditure when the condition
of the country remains as it is. And the sooner
Mr. Hoover realizes that, the better it will be for
What does Mr. Hoover think of unemployment?
What does h propose specifically to do for agri-
culture? What are his banking reforms? If he
takes government out of business, will he stimulate
trade? If he returis the relief problem to the
states, what will he do with states that have
admitted they cannot handle it?
There are answers to these problems. But Mr.
Hoover, if he knows them, does not tell us.

To the Editor:-
Under the headline "Great Universities of Ger-
many Under Nazi Rule Declining," the Detroit
Free Press of May 3 carried the following article:
Berlin, May 2. -- (U.P.) - Higher learning is
sharply in the decline in Nazi Germany. Where
267,257 students attended universities in 1932, only
182,695 were enrolled during the academic year
"Observers cite four reasons to account for this:
first, a change in the German conception of the
value of higher educ.ation; second, complete elim-
ination of Jews from university life; third, re-
strictions of the freedom of a university caused by
the political demands of Nazi allegiance, and last,
discouragement by the Nazi of higher learning for
"Elimination of Jews from university life has
been gradual but nonetheless complete.
"Nazi propaganda stresses that 'the woman's
place is in the home.' The officially sponsored
League for Large Families continually stresses
that the primary duty of German womanhood
is to bear healthy children. Thus higher educa-
tion for women is no longer deemed important,
with a resultant falling off in university attend-
Another article in the same paper dated April
30th reads as follows: "Despite published state-
ments that the Nazi political machine would as-
sume an important role in the celebration of the
550th anniversary of Heidelberg University in Ger-
many this June, administration authorities at the
University of Michigan Wednesday confirmed a
previous announcement that two University dele-
gates would attend.
"The University's letter of acceptance to the
rector of the University of Heidelberg, dated Feb.
5, acknowledged "with appreciation th honor
of the invitation which has just been received."
"Howard Mumford Jones, professor of English,I
who recently resigned from the University faculty
to accept a similar position at Harvard next fall,
did not approve of the idea of sending delegates.
'I think it would have been better for American,
universities not to have sent representatives, as a
protest against the German government's constant
violations of academic freedom,' he said.'
"Tuesday, Professor Jones spoke to two pro-
fessors now on the Ann Arbor campus who were
exiled from German institutions. 'They said,'
Prof. Jones reported, 'that so far as dismissal of
professors and usurpation of academic freedom
are concerned, conditions at Heidelberg are far
worse than in any other German university.'
'On the whole,' he said, 'I wish American univer-
sities had followed the lead of English universities,
and consistently refused to recognize Nazi pol-
Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham and other Eng-
lish universities declined the invitations. British
leaders pointed out at the time that the Heidel-
berg celebration would take place on the second an-
niversary of the Hitler Blood Purge."
For the U. of M. to accept the invitation toa
the Heidelberg celebration, is to place our seal
of approval upon the Nazi outlawry of culture and1
dishonor the liberal traditions of pur university.
We should reject this invitation as we would that
of any other brigand.
To the Editor:
Spring seems definitely on its way in Ann Arbor,
and spring in Ann Arbor, besides heralding the
Music Festival and the Dramatic Season, generallyI
provides the campus with amusement in the form
of the impressive ceremonies of the honorary so-
In view of the University's ultimatum concern-
ing Hell Week, made recently via the Executive
Committee of the Interfraternity Council, it occursr
to me that these ceremonies can no longer be
looked upon with favor by the majority of the
campus. If it is "contrary to the best interests1
of Michigan fraternities" to carry on even ther
mild practices constituting Hell Week in most
houses here, then it can scarcely be said that theA
honorary societies, or the University which they
represent, are benefited by the drunken exhibitions
carried on by half naked students in the most con-
spicuous parts of the campus.
The _Conni_ Tower
The song within your glance I found enough
To satisfy me then who had grown shy
Of words that measure in commensurate thoughts
Bind them conventionally, and let them die.
Enough to trail a hay cart through the field,
To perch along a battered fence, to see
The upturned cups of mountains and your eyes
Looking away and laughing back at me.
Enough to tilt our chairs against the porch,
Absorb the distant noises, hear the shrill
Near note of peepees hidden in the brush
And smell the marsh-brown night come up
Now has my laggard tongue found rusty speech
Iconoclast who prays when none may hear-
To whisper, vainly, in a wordless night,
"Never, never forget, my dear, my dear."
VIRGINIA LEE O'DONNELL.
This variety show addict never saw the Cherry
Sisters, Elizabeth of whom died on Monday. We
don't recall their having played in Chicago; nor
would we have wasted twenty cents on a bill
containing an act that was suppposed to be mad.
But we exhumed the Tribune file of November,
1896 - it took a long time to read all about the
McKinley election -- and found that the act was
billed thus: "Charming Clerry Sisters -The
Greatest Ever." It played Hammerstein's Olympia,
Broadway and 44th Street. We failed to find any
review of vaudeville in the Tribune . . . Among
others on the same bill were James T. Powers
and Papinto. Maybe Mr. Powers appeared only
on Sunday, for "The Geisha" was playing here
then. and it seems to us that he played the China-
man in that operetta.
Sir: Here Dorothea Brande writes a book, "Wake
Up and Live," in which she devises a set of psy-
chological exercises which she believes will elimi-
nate the "will to fail," if successfully completed.
I took it seriousy. I went through the mental
calisthenics with all the ardor of a young blade
with his first bottle of hair tonic. I arose at un-
seemly hours, and scribbled religiously. I prac-
tically insulted my friends by my refusal to con-
tribute conversation, and I startled the most casual
acquaintances by brazen curiosity about their lives
and reactions. Finally I passed the tests, and felt
that I was ready. Success was to be mine.
So what happened! I found that everyone else
had been reading the book with the same idea,
and was as full of the will to succeed as I was.
When I went after a thing that had always eluded
me I found my competition also a votary of this
system, and my gain was nil. It was the old story
of the irresistible force meeting the immovable
That's the insidious thing about improvement
systems. There is nothing exclusive about them.
If they are good enough to be popular, they are
too popular to be good! It's a vicious circle! You
simply can't win! G.B.H.
Tut! If we may speak bluntly. We learned that
years ago. We read a book on tennis by Maurice
McLoughlin; so did our opponents. Then we read
one by J. Parmly Paret, another by Anthony Wild-
ing, two by Tilden, and one by Mercer Beasley.
Not only did all our opponents read these books
but they seemed to learn just a little more from
them than I learned. The only thing we ever got
that did us any good was one sentence from
Wilding's advice, to the effect that maybe when you
felt tired, that you couldn't hit another ball, your
opponent might be even more tired.
According to Miss May Wood Wiggington, of
Denver, the present-day generation wants hard
books; that is, books that are not milk toast. Coin-
cidentally the following "Ballade of a Persistent
Best Seller" has been received from N. D. Plume:
Although living waxes annually tougher,
And the future looms indubitably drear;
Though the civilized amenities must suffer
From the barnacles of bigotry and fear,
Yet I will not be a-weeping in my beer
While the Muses rule securely on Parnassus;
Nay, I'm cherishing this molecule of cheer:
Santayana's been discovered by the masses!
What with military moguls getting rougher,
And the demagogues a-goging in my ear,
Or that dull an unimaginative duffer
To whom bards seem psychologically queer
My discouragement has deepened year by year.
Still,. are citizens unanimously asses?
Take a look at what can happen over here:
Santayana's been discovered by the masses!
Some will say the average reader is a. bluffer
Thinly covered by a cultural veneer
Who will buy but never finishes -the guffer !--
Volumes vaunted by his daily gazetteer.
Maybe so. Yet I'm continuing to peer
Through my slightly faded pair of rosy glasses
Though you gentlemen may cynically jeer.
Santayana's been discovered by the masses!
before the world began to see it as we
do today - to state it as did the
Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung," a
glorious production, showing a wealth
of lovely ideas, used with perfect con-
ncetion, order and lucidity." Albert
Wier tells how even Carl Maria von
Weber, one of Beethoven's severest
critics' spoke of it enthusiastically.
Last night in the fourth concert in
the May Festival, the audience had
the opportunity to hear the score
read intelligently and with a tinge of
Eighteenth Century politeness. Cer-
tainly none of the devices, prophetic
of the later Beethoven and shocking
to Classic ears, reached us who have
not only met the man of the Eroica,
the Fifth, the Seven and the Ninth,
but have also come through Stravin-
sky and Szostakowicz.
The excellent Mozart fare which
was on the first part of last night's
concert was a joy - as Mozart always
is. He is the example of a composer
who becomes more endeared to the
universal mind as time goes on, never
weaiing thin. Much has been written
about the merry laughter which
shines through even his tearful music,
if indeed there be any, and much
more will be wlitten even after our
time and as long as he continues
to be the wellspring of happiness in
the music library. Miss Lily Pons
was the lovely personality and voice
who caused "the 5000" to rejoice with
Mozart and herself in Alleuia.
The two Debussy Preludes, so beau-
tifully orchestrated by Mr. Charles
O'Connell, hold a very high position
in the "wonders" of the entire festival.
It is hard to say which of the two
is the more lovely - the elusive, far-
away starriness of Canope or the
the picturesque, colorful revelry of
Minstrels. By giving them paired, the
one enhanced the other's charm.
It's real affection indeed which
an audience has for a singer when
she is begged, beseeched, and even
demanded to return again and again
for a second encore, and when one is
not forthcoming, to actually stop the
show. It's no wonder everyone the
country over enjoys Lily Pons for her
grace and charm are as much a part
of her art as is her lovely voice. The
house was indeed disappointed when
she finally had to come on the stage
with her wrap to prove there was to
be no more, and it took the appear-
ance of Mr. Stokowski himself to
He became one of the orchestra,
