Two Sore
Thumbs.
T IS BAD political strategy, it seems
to us, for a President, whose cam-
paigning is self-admittedly going to be "history'
to attempt to take another chance with those two
sore thumbs, the Florida Canal and the Passa-
maquoddy (Me.) Dam.
The Florida and Passamaquoddy projects are
among the more unsavory developments of the
Roosevelt Administration's public works program
They smacked of politics and/or inefficiency, al-
through when U.S. Army engineers, and a score of
private construction experts decried them as un-
sound, the former seems the more likely. = Finally,
after millions of dollars had been expended on
them, during which time even our own University
engineering faculty said neither of the projects
could possibly succeed, Senator Vandenberg's in-
cessant attacks on them forced the President to
call them off.
Senator Vandenberg did a worthy work in so
battling such foolishness. He is doing worthy work
now in attempting to stop the President from forc-
ing revival of those projects.
Why on earth Mr. Roosevelt is trying to waste
money, for that is what it amounts to, he admitted
himself, at a time like this, when all good New
Dealers should be declaring publicly that expenses
should be curtailed as much as possible, we can-
not imagine. The political pull in Maine and Flor-
ida must be strong indeed, despite the fact that we
hear reports that a sizeable portion of the people in
those states think the projects undesirable.
Maybe it's the heat, or maybe the President
misses the counsel of the late Louis McHenry
Howe.

A Plank
From The Socialists...
O NE OF THE PLANKS in the Social-
ist platform adopted at Cleveland
this week should provoke some thought at least
among the followers of the two older parties. It is
the paragraph referring to the Constitution, which
reads:I
"The adaptation of the Constitution to the
needs of the times, among other things, through
the farmers' and workers' rights amendment end- ]
ing the usurped power of the Supreme Court to
declare social legislation unconstitutional and
granting the power to acquire and operate indus-
tries; through an amendment making future
amendments less difficult, and the child labor
amendment."
The power of the Supreme Court to declare leg-
islation unconstitutional is not "usurped." We
do not favor the government operation of indus-
tries. Nevertheless, this paragraph does point to
the rather striking fact that despite a knowledge
of what needs to be done to improve the lot off
labor and agriculture, and despite a willingness1
to do it, the people of the United States are pow-
erless to help themselves.
Much money has been wasted and much valuable
time lost in the voiding of New Deal measures to
help labor and the farmer. Perhaps it is thel
fault of the administration, as Republicans con-
tend, but certain labor legislation which should
be passed, indeed must be passed, legislation such
as the 30-hour week and, the minimum wage, can-
not be passed under the Constitution as it stands.
Perhaps the New Deal did act unwisely in au-j
thorizing the expenditure of large sums in the1
organization of the NRA machinery, in view of its
possible invalidation, and in protracting the test1
case; nevertheless, we credit them with havingl
perceived and encouraged the direction in whichf
our social philosophy must move if we are not,
to carry on unadjusted to the point of intoler-
ability.;
It is a dangerous precedent, to make the Con-1
stitution easy to amend. It is, however, utterly'
incomprehensible that we should alloiv the fear of
too great flexibility to prevent us from doing that
which common sense and even self-preservation
dictates - amend the Constitution.

Commission And Omssin
To the Editor:
In the first place, I fail to see why The Daily
prefers to burden its editorial page with reviews
of a dead season's plays, plays which opened early
in the winter, and are no longer of the slightest
interest to The Daily's great reading public. But
that is not the point of this letter.
Thursday's Daily ran a review of "Dead End,"
outstanding play of the New York season now
defunct, by a Mr. C. Hart Schaaf, who, it seems,
has an interest in the drama unaffected by the
passage of time. It is only laughingly that I
call the column a review, of course, because it
is actually no more the whispering of Mr. Schaaf's
"Intelligence," telling us - and how startled we
are - that "somehow, sometime these luckless
individuals were twisted away from normalcy by
forces for which all society is responsible."
Now this has been pointed out many times
before by competent critics, and while the play
was still young. Many other important sociolog-
ical factors in the new play which seem to have
escaped Mr. Schaaf were also discovered by the
play's earlier critics. For example, The Daily's
critic has either failed to notice or failed to appre-
ciate the dangerous admiration and hero-worship
of the gangster by the urchins who frequent the
dock and the dirty river which it graces.
The only original conclusion which Mr. Schaaf
has come to is that "Dead End" should be pre-
sented in every corner of the country. This is,
it is true, a splendid sentiment, but for those of
us, who were not privileged to see the play, it is
quite inadequate. We would like, for instance,
to learn something about the sets, which, it is
reported in this far corner of the country, were
designed by Norman-Bel. Geddes, and we would
like to know something more about the characters.
During the last five or six months we have learned
enough about the social implications of the play
to realize that Mr. Schaaf failed to understand
most of them. He could have done us a real
service had he told us something about the dra-
matic aspects of the play, and left the rest to
some of his more distinguished colleagues.
But, I suppose, C. Hart Schaaf will continue to
write his little essays on his intelligence in spite
of -all that can be said to belittle the subject.
The Daily is like that.--A.SD.
Too Polite-
To the Editor:
Why should we American university students
take everything lying down without even offering
a bit of resistance to the bilge that is handed
us on a silver platter? I am not an anarchist
advocating revolution but merely a student dar-
ing our betters to give us what we deserve.
American students are too polite. In Europe
a professor is expected to have studied his subject
and know it perfectly. If he goes off on a tangent
in order to hide his ignorance of his assigned
topic, his audience soon lets him know in no
uncertain terms. Here in this country, instructors
of higher learning think that they can go play-
ing golf any time they wish and can get away
the next day in class without saying anything of
importance. Yet as intelligent as we .are (or
like to think that we are), we take it all very
calmly and never raise a whimper of protest.
A learned man on our campus who comes from
Europe informs me (off the record) that Euro-
pean artists think American audiences are "easy."
No matter how poor the performance, the audi-
ences invariably applaud for encore after encore.
The press here is no better able to distinguish a
good performance from a mediocre one. Critics

Not one in five winners of sweepstake prizes
give their names on blanks; pseudonyms, like "I
Need It Badly," "Baby Needs Shoes," "The Lucky
Four" are common. This is not founded, we
believe, so much on a fear that the bees soliciting
alms, insurance, and real estate will swoop down
on the sweepstakes honey as it is on the supersti-
tion that if a person signs a wrong name, especially
one that coppers one's luck --it is the old touch-
wood evil-eye stuff -like "The Unlucky Kesslers"
and "Hope We Win." Of course, "The Lucky
Four," 528 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, won a consola-
tion prize, but one can imagine the signer putting
quotes around "Lucky," br, if he didn't think
quotes, said to himself, "Yo, lucky!"
It seems that this year's Newdigate Prize has
been won by D. M. DerWinser, a member of
the Oxford crew. The poem is called "Rain,"
and four lines of it were printed in Sunday's
Herald Tribune. They follow:
The city worker, buried like a mole,
Sees not the drops upon the window pane,
And thinking of his boss, says, in his soul
"No golf or tennis. Goody, goody! Rain!'
Mr. Winser said that he was "afraid that it
wasn't a very good poem"; that it didn't rhyme,
and that he wasn't sure what meter it was in.
We don't believe it; that is, we don't believe
that he thinks that it doesn't rhyme; and we
doubt that he doesn't know what meter it is
in, though it doesn't matter. It probably is in
dactylic pentameter. The city worker over here
feels this way about rain:
The' city worker, buried like a mole,
Hears but the tapping on his office glass;
And in his tiny dessicated soul
Fears that his golf may suffer on wet grass.

On the 30th of May in Hancock County there
was an air of decorous festivity. Early in the
morning the flags were unfurled and hung from1
front porches and upstairs windows. Colonel)
Niepling and old Captain Wilson hung out their
flags, the decrepit appearance of which you always
deplored. Why hang out these battle-riddled
shreds? While your own bright new flag waved
and uttered, these ancient banners swung heavily
as if they were tired and stiff and sorrowful - as
well they might be.
The Ladies Aid Society in their best black silk
dresses, drove down to Maple Grove Cemetery in
family sureys and phaetons where the flowers1
they had amassed from friends and neighbors
awaited them. The old soldiers plodded down re-
inforced by Company "A" and a drum corps.
Uncle Will could not march because of that formerl
wound in his leg but he was eagerly awaiting hist
comrades at the cemetery gates. He wore his nice
blue uniform and his broad-brimmed hat and his
badges. His moustache and his "goatee" were
neatly trimmed and he looked very smart in spite
of his pale-wasted face. There were many soldiers'
graves to be decorated with flowers, to be fresh-..
ened with new flags in the iron braces, to be sere-
naded softly by the feeble little fife and drum corps.
There was one tract where so many soldiers weret
buried that when all the new flags were installed
they glowedi like a small field of popies - or bleed-
ing hearts. As they went here and there through
the trees, one heard the fife and drum corps
piping and beating for each soldier so peacefully
sleeping under his mound of garden flowers.
Now on the 30th of May in Hancock County the
pretentious little Country Club opened for the
season with a bang. Plenty of rich food, plenty
of music and dancing commemorate the deaths of
young men who lay rotting on the battle fields.
Not that there are not patriots among the dancers.
There are substantial citizens who urged the pur-]
chase of Liberty bonds, whose zeal was untiring1

in getting up "drives," whose hatred of Germany
was so intense as to burn books printed in the
German language, to smash Wagnerian Victor rec-
ords; but whose active participation in the late
lamented conflict was restricted to the manufac-.
ture of wartime necessities, with its gratifying
financial returns. There are men who came back+
from the war, but their wrath against Germany
never rose to such fury as that of those others
who stayed at home. There is still a small com-,
pany of the faithful who decorate the graves, but
there is a far greater crowd to celebrate the open-,
ing of the Country Club. The noise of the thump-
ing drums and bellowing brasses is heavy and loud
but sometimes between dances when well-fed Han-
cock County is wiping sweaty brows and wilting
collars or adjusting its elastic girdles over jutting+
hips and derrieres, you may even hear faintly
through the years the strains of the little fife and
drum corps marching through Maple Grove Ceme-
k tery from sleeping soldier to sleeping soldier.

Mr. Zioncheck, the shrinking anemone of Seattle,
says that he is an amazing tennis player. Whom
does his game amaze? Why, we doubt that he
could get a set from Miss Mayme McDonald,,
who was woman's champion - or runner-up -
of the Seattle district about thirteen years ago.
As a traffic officer of the Newspaper Guild,

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, May 28.-If Gov-
ernor Lehman does not run again
in New York-and it will remain an
"if" right down to nomination time
in September no matter how "adam-
ant" the governor's mind may be to-
day-the sturdy figure of Sen. Bob
Wagner is apt to march across that
political stage again. His role would
be completely reversed this year,
however, from that for which he was
slated in the Democratic state con-
vention of '32.
At that time a far stronger Tam-
many put the Senator forward to
beat Lehman out of the nomination.
It took the combined influence of Al
Smith and the party presidential
nominee, Franklin Roosevelt, then
governor, to block that Tammany
move. Gossip has it that Roosevelt
virtually drafted the Senator to con-
tinue in that body where he was ad-
vised he would be far more useful to
the impending Democratic national
administration than he would be at
Albany. Whatever the argument,
Wagner announced on the eve of the
convention that he was a candidate
for the Senate only.
MIGHT BE DRAFTEDl
ODDLY enough, it could happen
that the situation would be just
reversed for Wagner by September.
He has been among the staunchest
New Deal supporters in the Senate.
He might find himself drafted this
year by Washington to run for gov-
ernor if Lehman is actually out. His
labor record, his Tammany back-
ground-perhaps even the fact that
he is not eligible for the presidency
or vice-presidencybecause he is of
foreign birth-could make him an
important cog in the strategy of the
New Deal.
President Roosevelt has gone this
far without building up any figure
in his cabinet or among his alpha-
betical advisers or in the Senate or
House into heir-apparent proportions
for 1940. Whether that is happen-
stance or design does not matter. The
governorship of New York has so
long been such a steppingstone for
men ambitious for the presidency.
With Wagner at Albany, that route
would be closed and the Democrats in
'40 must look elsewhere, probably to
the west, for a nominee.
CURIOUS POLITICAL CAREER
W AGNER'S political career has
been a curious one. He was per-
fectly happy as a New York state
judge when one of Al Smith's cam-
paigns for the governorship made his
nomination for the Senate desirable.
In effect, at any rate, so the story
ran, he was drafted into national po-
litical life by Smith just as much asJ
Franklin Roosevelt was drafted for
the governorship in '28 as a part of
Smith's campaign for the presidency.
Now it could happen that Wagner
may be drafted back to state, and
out of national, political service as
an element of the Roosevelt reelection+
campaign.
Which would put Al Smith in'
something of a fix. Could he fail to
give enthusiastic support to Wag-
ner for governor although in so do-
ing he would be indirectly but very
importantly aiding Roosevelt?

Wetteran .
C H. WETTERAU, vice-president of
the American National Bank in
Nashville, Tenn., told members of the Illinois
Bankers' Association meeting in St. Louis Wednes-
day .that "we hold our charters at the will of the
American public, and it is to that public we have
to account.",
Those are sweet-sounding words, but news-
paper reports of the convention indicate that they
were intended to be more than an idealistic senti-
ment. Mr. Wetterau continued,; saying in effect
that it is high time that public favor be curried
by bankers, else they meet the fate of those rail-
roads whose policy was "the public be damned."
Although it would be optimistic to interpret
the Wetterau "will-of-the-public" statement as
much more than one of the first steps in currying
favor, probably a good many readers will glow with
pride at this recognition of their authority. The
idea that American life in all its phases is guided
by an actual working democracy is one of the
strongest habits of American thought. It is not
difficult - indeed, it is very easy - for the average

Prospects For Graduates Are
Said To Be Best Since 1931

y

W ASHINGTON, May 28. -IP)-The
nation's vast army of job-hunt-
ing youths, estimated recently at 4,-
700,000, will be enlarged soon by sev-
eral hundred thousand diploma-
armed recruits fiom the colleges and
high schools.
Despite a job-getting prospect for
the just - graduated - from - college
youth said to be the brightest in five
years, there are indications that up-
ward of 5,000,000 young men and
women between the ages of 16 and
25 will be without work, but wanting
it this summer.
Officials of the national youth ad-
ministration, however, believe the sit-
uation will be somewhat better within
six months. Richard Brown, deputy
executive director of NYA, says the
absorption of young people by in-
dustry and commerce next fall
"should nearly compensate for the
new batches of job-seekers coming

Officials of government agencies
dealing with the youth problem say
that reports on employment for this
year's college graduates from the di-
rectors of personnel divisions and
placement bureaus in the colleges are
"definitely the most optimistic in five
years."
The outlook for high school grad-
uates also is said to have improved
with the pickup in business and the
efforts of national ,state and local
organizations to place young people.
College, Then Relief
Approximately 2,876,000 people in
this age group are on relief, including
work projects and student aid. About
35,500, or 2 per cent, of an estimated
1,726,000 urban youth on relief are
