Europeans, if you please-know how to get the real
core of a happy life, calm and peaceful-like.
That is what constitutes living a la Europe
according to stereotyped statements: First of all
the wife and mother is closer to the family. She
watches over all the needs and desires of her
children. She determines their clothes, does their
homework, and what not. It is also her duty
to go through a routine of daily haranguing with
the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick-maker
in order to prevent her enemy, these merchants,
from securing a single sou too much.

Two Wrong
NATIONS GO TO WAR because of
economic pressure. Economics de-
mands that force and violence be used.
It's an inborn characteristic of mankind to be-
come angry and fight at times. Wars can't be elim-
inated while humans are human.
Various groups with axes to grind have oten
deluded themselves or others'with these two argu- I
ments-or, more strictly speaking, excuses. Last I
week Prof. Max Handman very effectively stripped
the last vestiges of respectability from these ex-
cuses in a talk on "Economics and War" which de-
serves the attention of all who feel at a loss before
the excuses.
In dealing with the second of them, Professor
Handman made the point that modern war and the1
impulse which leads one man to smash another's
nose have practically nothing in common. Cave-
men may have used clubs and knives for a more ef-
fective smash, but the modern private has abso-
lutely no interest in seeing another private several
miles away blown into atomic shreds of muscle and
gut by a shell upon which he has jammed a breech-
lock. In no other age before modern imperialism
has long, intensively pressed war been waged.
Returning to the first of the excuses, Professort
Handman found that war does not relieve eco-
nomic pressure in an economic manner; the remedy
has proven more costly than the disease for modern
dictators. And it is not the cheapest remedyt
available, either, usually it is the most uneconomic
When the Ethiopian invasion was begun, it wasl
to economics that Mussolini looked for his excuses.e
Too many people in an area naturally poor in re-
sources, said Il Duce, meant that Italy must ex-
pand. (And, Professor Handman added, aside, for
15 years the dictator has been so impressed byt
this economic stringency that the birth rate has
been encouraged to increase by every imaginable
Economics. however, does not take such as-
sertions for granted; dollars and cents accounting
is often necessary to prove an action economical.I
In this case, Professor Handman furnished a
rough monetary picture of the Italian venture..
On the one side of the fiscal balance sheet was the
actual cost of shipment, preparation, and destruc-
tion of the war materials, plus the cost of carrying
and settling in Ethiopia any appreciable number
of Italians. Ten billion dollars was the conserva-

tive total reached by Professoi Handman.
For one-tenth of this amount every one of thej
Italians hypothetically taken to Ethiopia could
have had built and equipped the manufacturing
facilities necessary to give him a real income at
the very worst equal to what he might gain int
Ethiopia. That would be more economic proce-
And that procedure, and not war, would haver
been more inherently human.

It is.also assumed by every loyal wife that she
must take personal charge of even the minutest
domestic detail. The servants are under her con-
stant surveillance, for the mistress of the house
must supervise all cleaning, laundering and cook-
ing; in fact, there is nothing that a servant can
do which does not receive her personal sanction.
That is not all. When father comes home
from his long day's grind, he immediately takes
over many of the burdens of his wife such as
watching the domestics, scrutinizing the bills, etc.
Of course-and this is always played up-the hus-
band comes home for every meal, even lunch.
What, then, is the basis upon which Europeans
make their self-assured statements? It is quite
evident that any American, if he attempted to
adhere to a mode of living as rigorous as that de-
scribed above would probably eventually collapse
from exhaustion. What American would not re-
gad as foolish this strict surveillance of details
and unwavering scrutiny of petty daily routines?
We do not say that America's mode of living is
better than Europe's but certainly we can justi-
fiably admit that it is no more pace-killing. We
do things in a big way and disregard details. The
European does many things, but is practically al-
ways on the verge of hysteria watching the details.
Ergo, if we can be said to be utilizing all available
body energy, then across the Atlantic they are vio-
lating the law of conservation of energy-they
must be creating some somewhere.

Lost And Found
Underneath the sturdy oak tree
At the scene of recent conflict
(-- - noisy foolish conflict)
There was found a good belt buckle
Fashioned by the mighty Hickok
Out of silver did he make it
(Skookum hyas kloshe wampum)
And upon it traced a letter
Which the owner will remember.
If for sentimental reasons
He desires again to see it
He should seek the place provided:
Seek the Secretary's office,
Ask the maiden for the buckle1
Telling her the inscribed letter.

Not Fun
To the Editor:
The editorial, "Fun For Admirals," appearing1
in your May 28th issue, was, like many another
similar article, written by someone who obviouslyj
has not the slightest idea what he is talking about.I
In the first place it isn't fun. Is it fun when you1
get only four or five hours sleep during the
twenty-four (that is an average - the 24 and 481
hour stretches without any sleep won't be dis-
cussed), and those few taken mostly in snatches
with your clothes on in a cramped chart room offj
the bridge? Is it fun, steaming full speed in
formation without any lights on a dark night,1
with your eyes straining into the darkness ahead
and around you, wondering "if the other fellow"
understands his orders, and will make his turn at
exactly the right second and will not come plowing
into you out of the night?
The mention of the loss of the twelve lives and
the statement that that is "off the record" is
just another of the methods used by the profes-
sional and amateur agitator as an attempt to;
discredit any of the military forces. The loss of
those twelve lives is decidedly "on the record" -
the agitator sees to that - but what is truly off
the record is the fact that during an equal period;
of time, with the fleet anchored "safely" in a
harbor of the United States, approximately twice;
as many lives are lost due to accidents ashore.-
And even then the Admirals don't have fun!

To the Editor:
It seems to me that you might well be accused
of inconsistency after your editorial today con-
demning the Detroit papers for their bias in their
news columns against the notorious Black Legion.
For the day before, you printed on your front+
page an article concerning the dismissal of a local
radical high school teacher which simply reeked
with bias toward the radical. You ended the item
by saying something to the effect that the presi-
dent of the school board said that the teacher
did not have the "right" attitude and then COM-
MENTING, you wondered what the "right" atti-
tude was. No red-baiter am I, but the glaring
inconsistency did arrest my attention.
Anyways, why does such a filthy organization
as the Black Legion need defense from supposedly
decent journalists? - Conrad Hopkins

Stenographer's Lament
My window is wide open as I look out on the town,
And the sun beats on the roof tops and the tracks;
And the trains roll by so quickly, and the people
cluster thickly.
And the shoppers run from Macy's into Saks.
And my window is wide open as I look out on the
And the mothers shush their offspring with a sock;
And the typists chew their gum so, and the bosses
always hum so
And the liners whistle so at every dock.
Ah, my window is wide open as I look out on New
And the signboards scream their wares both~ loud
and dim,
And the chorus walks up coldly, while the men
eye them so boldly.
And I'm working late at some damn boss's whim!
One honor doth tread upon another's heel, so
fast they follow. The Congress of American
Poets take pleasure, they tell us in what we con-
sider an understatement of their ecstasy, in ex-
tending to us 'their cordial invitation to act as
an honorary member of the National Poetry
Council and to designate as many delegates to
attend the Congress of American Poets as will
adequately represent the Herald Tribune in the
proceedings of the Congress on the dates most
convenient to them between June 14 and October
12, 1936, and in the consideration of the subjects
listed in the annexed program, with other men
and women distinguished for their accomplish-
ments and interest in Poetry, Literature, Drama,
Music, Opera, the Theatre, Motion Pictures, Sci-
ence, the Oral Arts, the Graphic Arts, the Radio
Arts and Education and Culture generally."
Well, if the C. of A. P. have a department of
elocution, our first job as Honorary Member of
the National Poetry Council would be to ask
the voice culturists to read that little non-stop
sentence. As that would be too much trouble we
must decline to gratify the Congress's pleasure;
we decine to serve.
There are twenty-nine points in the program
of the C. A. P. occupying twelve pages for con-
centrated exposition. Point 10 reads:
CALS: The delegates are invited to expres their
observations on the complaints that editors of
newspapers and periodicals are depriving the pub-
lic and poets of the benefit of meritous poems
by requiring short poems dealing with common-
place subjects. The editors are invited to present
their views and suggestions. The Poets will pre-
sent their views.
As an editor, this is our view: More than 99
per cent of good poetry submitted to newspapers
and periodicals gets printed; there are no requi-
sitions of "short poems dealing with common-
place subjects." Nor is there any reason why a
short poem, or a long poem, dealing with a com-
monplace subject should be a commonplace poem.
As a Poet and not editor we don't see - we are
a not too rugged individualist, and so we predict
that nothing meritorious will issue as a result,
direct or indirect,- of the Congress of American
Poets, in session from June 14 to October 12
though it be.
There are fourteen objectives of the Congress,
No. 5 of which is to consider the influence of
Poetry in national life. The heaven-born maid,
the flowing fount of sentiment, the Divine Emol-
ient has no influence in national life, let the
Congress of American Poets convene until the
cows start out again! But poets might have an
influence in national life, especially on Election
Day. Every American poet of age, and that, to
judge from one day's mail, must be at least!
85,000,000, has a vote; and a President who could
count on the solid poetic vote would avalanche
to victory.
Further Thoughts on No. 5
Resolved that poetry and versification r

Have an effect upon the nation.
Perhaps the Black Legion will dissolve as soon
as it transpires that there is some chiseling or
grafting done in the sale of uniforms and hoods.
But what are the hates of the Blacks? The
KKK hated Negroes, Jews and Catholics. Yet
the Klan expired. We have no lofty opinion
of the human race, and its capacity for love is
not what it should be; love, we hear from its vic-
tims, is far from eternal. But hate, we believe,
is even more fleeting and volatile. It is possible
to hate abstract things like injustice and even
somebody else's greed. But the Blacks have to
hate people, and it is hard for anybody to lash
himself into a fury of hatred every morning.
Our hatreds of persons vary from week to week;
sometimes a month passes during which our
hatred, to reverse Ring Lardner, ripens into
apathy. We hate the ignorant, sadistic, silly big-
otry that makes the Black Legion possible; but,
not in contact with them, we feel for the persons
who join such clubs great compassion.
The esteemed Daily News prints what purports
to be the first stanza of George Wither's "The
Shepherd's Resolution"- the poem beginning
"Shall I, wasting in despair?" It is, we assume,
a typographical error to say that Wither was
born in 1518 and died in 1667. But the stanza
ends. instead of "If she not so to me."
If she think not well of me,
What care I how fair she be?

let's see your tampering license.

A Washington
WASHINGTON, May 29.-Digging
over the political news files of the
convention in Chicago that nominated
Franklin D. Roosevelt for the presi-
dency in '32 brings strikingly to mind
the number of major news figures of
that scene who will not stalk the
Democratic convention stage at Phil-
adelphia this year. Death and the
vicissitudes of politics have been busy
in the '32 Democratic ranks these
four years.
Walsh of Montana was first to fall.
His death came before he could take
over the cabinet seat as attorney
general the President-elect had off-
ered him i'
There has always been speculation
among those who knew the Montana
senator well as to what difference in
the course of New Deal legislation it
might have made had he survived to
become chief legal adviser of the
President. Senator Walsh was a rec-
ognized senate authority on constitu-
tional law. He would have spoken
in administration councils with a very
persuasive voice when NRA and AAA'
or any other New Deal measure that
subsequently fell before a supreme
court verdict was in the making.
velt's first treasury head, died in
office. He did not play any part in
the Chicago convention, however, as
did Walsh as permanent chairman.
When Woodin's name was first noised
about as probable treasury secretary,
Senator Carter Glass of Virginia hav-
ing declined the post, it took much
reference to the books to look him up.
Then there was Huey Long of Lou-
isiana. He was forever in the con-
vention news in '32. His turbulent
activities made a deal of "copy." Long
is dead, as is Ritchie of Maryland.
And who of those who watched the
show at Chicago could forget Ritchie's
place there. Maryland marched to
that convention convinced that her I
four-times governor would be nom-
inated. There can be no question but
that he was very close to the honor
when the McAdoo-managed Califor-
nia-Texas bolt to Roosevelt came.
*' *
TONY CERMAK of Chicago also is
dead, slain by a bullet fired at the
President-elect. He was not only of-
ficial host of that '32 convention as
mayor of Chicago; but headed an
Illinois-Indiana combination that
might have made history but for the
California-Texas plunge to theRoose-
velt standard.
Missing, too, in Philadelphia will
be the Chicago man-of-mystery, Col.
Louis Howe, the insidest man of the
Roosevelt forces who sat day and
night as the connecting link between
the candidate at Albany and the
Roosevelt forces on the floor or
around the hotel lobbies. None has
risen to take his place at the Presi-
dent's side; but Howe's genius will
not be needed in Philadelphia. Even
had he lived and been in health, no.
doubt he would have remained in
Washington except to accompany his
chief to the acceptance ceremony.
Will Al Smith be at the convention?
Probably not, for there is no prospect
of a "stop-Roosevelt" move now. And
what of "Alfalfa Bill" Murray of Ok-
lahoma, Arthur Mullen of Nebraska,
Bruce Kramer of Montana?
Hisses, Iioos, And
Cheers T o Reign At
'Drammner' Tonight

Hissing and booing the villian and
cheering the hero and heroine will be
in order tonight at Prekete's Garden
Room where the Hillel Players will
present "Second Love" or "Why She
Married the Other Man," an old-'
fashioned melodrama of Givil War1
To preserve the atmosphere the
play will produce, the audience will
be seated at tables in the old beer
garden method. Dancing will follow
and refreshments will be served be-
tween the acts and afterward, Nor-
man Sharfman, president of the Play-
ers announced.
The plot will follow the oft-re-
peated lines of melodrama promin-
ent in the days of 1868 when it was
written by J. P. Simpson. It will in-
clude the villian's attempt to fore-
close the mortagage, the "proud beau--
ty's" cry for help and the final rescue
in a Jack Daltonish style.
The play, which is the last the
Players will present this year, is
directed by Louise Samek, '38, and
Miriam Sauls, '36. The cast in-
cludes Leonard Kasle, '38, as Ralph,
the hero, Joe Eisner, Grad., as the
Colonel, the villian, Phyllis Diamond,
'38, as the blind heroine, Madalyn
Betty Meyers, '38, as the Mother, Lou
Levine, '38, and Miriam Sauls, '36.
