and "new leaves" are usually motivated by a sin-
cere desire for improvement, but along with new
semester proclamations they are often followed
by a lapse into the former mode of living whether
it involves more study or less or something else.
Aside from the increased self-esteem that a
widely proclaimed academic new deal gives, it is
often of little value. Great changes in scholastic
ability and application are seldom effected within
a few months or even a year. Records show that
a large number of students who are awarded Phi
Beta Kappa keys were members of Phi Eta Sigma,
freshman honorary society, indicating the consis-
tency of good scholarship. If you thing it neces-
sary to turn over a new leaf, it would be best
to do it quietly. Aim for a slow but positive im-
provement rather than the erratic sort of change
that is being vainly predicted now that the semes-
ter is young.

NIGHT EDITOR: MARSHALL D. SHULMAN
Thank God For
Real Americans .. .
S EN. KEY PITTMAN, Nevada Dem-
ocrat and PATRIOT, is to be con-
gratulated for recently telling Japan WHAT THEY
COULD DO.
Senator Pittman is the kind of a man that this
REPUBLIC NEEDS. While the namby pambies
and PACIFISTS sit around Congress twiddling
their thumbs, Senator Pittman comes out and
SAYS JUST WHAT HE THINKS.
Everyone knows that the YELLOW PERIL is a
very real danger to our democracy, just as the RED
AND PINK PERIL IS. If it were not for such men
as WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST and SEN-
ATOR PITTMAN, Americans would see their
country taken away from them.
On the other hand if we have a LARGE NAVY
AND A LARGE ARMY we can sit back and tell
EVERYBODY TO GO TO HELL. What we really
want is PEACE AND JUSTICE for the WORKERS
so they can BE HAPPY. The way to insure this
peace and justice is to give them MILITARY
TRAINING.
SOME AGITATORS are saying that the only
reason PITTMAN, who is a lot LIKE GEORGE
WASHINGTON, told Japan off is because he has
a personal feud with HIROSI SAITO, Japanese
Ambassador, but all INTELLIGENT CITIZENS
WILL KNOW THAT THIS IS JUST PROPA-
GANDA.
We are indeed fortunate that this LAND OF
THE FREE still has PATRIOTS AND LOVERS OF
THEIR COUNTRY LIKE SENATOR PITTMAN.
Won't Happen
In Hollywood .. .
ILL HAYS' ULTIMATUM that "It
Can't Happen Here" will not be
filmed in Hollywood serves only to intensify our
dislike for that "goofy oasis."
Hollywood, the way we look at it, has all the
money that it can stand -in fact, more than is
good for it. They accept what America has to
offer them, which is more than any other country
could offer such a class of luxury-loving funsters,
and live "life to the full," or at least a life that
they enjoy.
So when Mr. Hays cancels arrangements to film
this novel of Sinclair Lewis, we feel that he has
burdened us with the last straw; especially since
he takes such action in consideration of "inter-
national policies and threat of boycott abroad."
Moreover, if America knew that Mussolini (almost
simultaneously with the Hollywood dictator's
ukase) was partaking of a celebration in an at-
tempt to launch Italy's film industry into inter-
national proportions (doubtless to spread propa-
ganda). the Hays action would appear cowardly,
to say the least: we should pamper Fascist Italy
while she was, as a nation, showing us her teeth.
"It Can't Happen Here" is obviously propa-
ganda; Sinclair Lewis admits it, but it is the kind
of propaganda that America so sorely needs. We
have accepted Russia's films that reek propaganda,
so there is no reason why we should not exhibit
some fearlessness and offer her, and Germany, and
Italy, some of our propaganda.
Mr. Hays admits the need of such propaganda
in this country when he announces his fear that
"It Can't Happen Here" would not pass the rigor-
ous censorship of dictatorially-ruled countries.

Criticism Of Government
To the Editor:
One of the interesting phenomena in connection
with the political game is the frequent criticism
with which the Federal administration is being
assailed both by patriotic as well as by unpatriotic
organizations, such as political parties, the Liberty
League, partisan newspapers, Chambers of Com-
merce, etc. Criticism of government is necessary
especially when such criticism springs from a sense
of justice and aims at the improvement by means
of constructive suggestions, of social, political,
and economic conditions. However, when a
hundred per cent partisan and vested interests
level their shafts at the administration, such
criticism defeats its own end for the reason that
intelligent people are not easily taken in by accu-
sations that the Roosevelt administration is a
dictatorship and that the people are being regi-
mented by the government. In a brilliant article
by a prominent American, Professor Felix Frank-
furter of Harvard University, the subject of crit-
icism of the government is touched upon as fol-
lows: "Whoever had come to power on March
4, 1933," writes Professor Frankfurter, "would have
been confronted overnight with new tasks of over-
whelming magnitude for government to assume.
A recovering patient never remembers, fortunately
perhaps, how devilishly sick he was. It is easy
to pick flaws in the administration of new mea-
sures which had to be improvised for emergencies
-too easy. But the fair-minded public should
keep in mind considerations that will move the
historians of our time. It is essential to observe
certain canons of criticism that are usually neg-
lected because they are so obvious.. Headlines an-
nounce the occasional gregarious blunder, but
day-by-day achievement is unchronicled. The
clash of politics, the friction between executive
and legislature, the taste for scandal, the preoc-
cupation with personalia, make us know whatever
goes wrong in government. It is right that it
should be so. The critics of government cannot
be too Argus-eyed. But no like conjunction of
forces educates the public to a knowledge of the
good in government. Virtue is proverbially not
news, and appreciation of achievement in govern-
ment, except when attained on the colossal scale
of a Panama Canal or in the dramatized conflict
of foreign relations, is all too dependent on dull
technical details. The public is therefore surpris-
ingly uninformed of the extent to which its serv-
ants contribute to the public good. And so the
all too common depreciation of men in public
service is at once shallow and cruel. It debilitates
where it should encourage. A collection of con-
demnatory comments on the Presidents alone,
from Washington down, would make a choice
anthology of abuse, but it would be a nonsensical
history of the United States."
-Professor-Emeritus M. Levi.
As Others See It
Greetings To Mr. Root
(From the New York Herald-Tribune)
SO RARELY does America's "Elder Statesman,"
Elihu Root, appear in the news that his ninety-
first birthday yesterday passed almost unnoticed
except by his friends and relatives. On the day be-
fore, at the Council on Foreign Relations, a bust
of Mr. Root had been dedicated in recognition of
his services to that body. A few members of
the council and a group of its directors were pres-
ent at the ceremony. But Mr. Root himself, true
to his custom of avoiding gatherings of this sort,
remained quietly at home.
Ever since the World War Mr. Root has lived
a life of retirement. He feels that others should
do and be heard. To himself he reserves the
simple pleasure of observing. The few who come
in contact with him report that his powers of
observation are undimmed and that his opinions
are as keen as ever. Many have wondered what

he thought of the strange antics of government
during the last three years, and would like to
know his reactions to such events as the decisions
of the Supreme Court about the New Deal. But
with a touch of his old dry wit Mr. Root has let
it be known that his son seems more concerned
about such things than he.
As he looks back on what he has seen in the
course of his long life he cannot but be impressed
with the extraordinary capacity of survival and
adaptation which this country has shown. His
own most important work was in a time that now
seems remote. In fact, he has himself already
passed into history. But we are glad to be able to
salute him and to wish him more vears of oiet

THE DIARY OF OUR OWN SAMUEL PEPYS
Saturday, February 8
LAY LONG, and so up and to luncheon with A.
Krock and he tells me things about Wsh-
ington and the place is now so bewildering that I
do not see how he, or anybody else, can select from
an embarrassment of poverty or richness, what
single matter to select to write about. So in the
afternoon to Capt. John Thomason's and met
there Commander Stone and his wife, a mighty
knowing lady, and I told John that I thought so,
and then be tells me that she is Grace Zaring Stone
that wrote "The Bitter Tea of General Yen" and
I was glad that I did not know it, and I remember
a play of Chesterton's I think it was "Magic,"
wherein somebody said that you never really know
anybody if you know his name. So to catch up D.
Taylor, and with him to dinner at the Press Club,
and thenafter I sate next to Mr. Jos. Byrnes the
Speaker of the House and listened to many long
speeches, by H. Broun and A. Woollcott and D.
Taylor, and thereafter there was dancing, and for
all that I know light wines, but I home and to
bed.
Sunday, February 9
SO OUT with Mr. and Mrs. H. Wechsler, and
thence to my inn, and in the evening to Mrs.
Daisy Harriman's, and sate next Miss Tone that
had been a secretary to Henry Adams, and next
her was to sit Dr. Charles Beard, and she said,
What did he write? And I told her a book or two
that he had wrote, and she told me that Henry
Adams had told her that she was too ostentatious
about her ignorance, and that if she only waited,
people would tell her what she wanted to know.
So after dinner, Dr. Beard spoke about the Con-
stitution, and how Jefferson and Hamilton had
thought thus and so about it, and I marvelled at
the accurateness of his knowledge and the ripe-
ness of his wisdom. Lord! I am mute at how much
more everybody whom I meet knows more about
everything that I do about anything!
Monday, February 10
UP, AND about the town, here and there, and
thence to the Supreme Court, at eleven, and
heard much talk about the lack of dignity of the
place, and how the old building was far worthier
of the high tribunal, but I thought that this was
still the most august and dignified place I ever had
seen, and even if it were undignified, why, when
the Court is so great a target, and some even want
to have it abolished, should it be more dignified.
Dignity is as dignity does, and there could be dig-
nity in a composing room, and there could be none
in the Senate.
Tuesday, February 11
DASHED ABOUT all the day, this being far dif-
ferent from the sheltered life I lead in my
domestic hermitage. So to the White House, and
met F. Roosevelt the President, who told me that
he was glad to see me, and I was about to tell
him that I hadn't known he cared, but thought
that I would wait my opportunity, which did not
come again. So to the office and worked a little,
and thence to dinner at G. Pinchot's, and sate
next Mr. Burton Wheeler the Senator from Mon-
tana, and he told me that he was at Ann Arbor
just after I had left, though he never had thought
of it in that way before. But though he lives in
Butte, he was born in Hudson, Mass., and lived
there for a long time. But there was one thing
-that I did not ask him: and that was whether he
knew Myron Brinig and Berton Braley, the Butte
litterateurs.
Wednesday, February 12
EARLY UP, and to my office and a message there
from my superior editor, asking whether I
were running for President, which I did not reply
to, but felt like saying that I would bow to his
will if that were his desire. But maybe he thought
that I ought to be running for a train. So after
my work to A. Warner's for dinner, and caught up
Webb Miller, who told us of Ethiopia. And after
dinner Ray Tucker come in and Mrs. T., and Cora
McKinney who told me that she was born on Mich-
igan Avenue and 26th Street, a block from my own
natal hovel. And she tells me of her uncle Teddy
Beck, and of other matters, and I 'had there the
merriest evening I have had in a long time, and
Ray drove me to my inn, through the snow.

Thursday, February 13
0UT, INTO the iciest, slipperiest morning ever I
experienced, and so to the office at eleven,
but nobody there yet, so I could enter, and so
went to see P. Oehser at the Smithsonian Insti-
tution, and mighty much interested in some of it,
but not the natural history portion. But I will
be bound that there are thousands of Americans
who have visited the museums and galleries of
France and Italy who would scorn to go to the
Smithsonian, yet were the same thing in these for-
eign lands they would not dare to come home and
say they had not seen it, yet would be the first
to scream about the Constitution, and down with
the traitor and up with the star. So to call upon
Mr. Schuyler Merritt who represents, among other
towns, Lyons Plain; and a fine representative
gentleman, too. And he gave me a luncheon of
oysters and bluefish; and so I to the office and
but down too many words, none much good and
so to pack my gripsack; and so downstairs to see
Hazel Vandenberg, and found Arthur there, and
said Lord! how did you get home so early after
speaking in New York last night? And he said
he came home on the night train, but that he got
the early editions of the morning papers to see
how his speech looked in print. Which I thought;
a mighty engaging admission, and I told him
that I had my November telegram already com-
posed, and he asked me what it was, and I told
him "Better luck next time." And his merriment
was sincere. So to catch up Mrs. Alice Longworth
and with her to see G. Cohan in "Dear Old Dar-
ling," a small play save for the almost incredibly
fine acting of Mr. Cohan, and never have I seen
so authentic a bit of intoxication portrayed. So to
the train for home, and fell asleep before ever the
train had left the station.

Washington
BYSTANDE R
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17. - Al-
though no "take a walk" threat
such as high-spotted Al Smith's Lib-
erty league barrage against the New
Deal characterized Senator Borah's
subsequent remarks under Borah-
for-President auspices in New York,
Republican old guardsmen could
scarcely find more comfort in Borah
than the New Dealers did in Smith.
Coming at a time when they were
so delightedly hearkening to the
sounds of discord in Democratic
ranks, it must have been peculiarly
painful to the ears of Republican
leadership in the east to be advised
by so big a western Republican gun
as Borah that in this election year
the party is at its lowest ebb in in-
fluence:
"And in my opinion the reason is
within the party and not outside the
party," the Idahoan added.
* * * *
WHILE piped to a different tune
and in a far different setting,
that was just about what Al Smith
had been saying at Washington to
follow "anti-New Deal" Democrats
and their Republican Liberty League
associatessifnot allies. While Borah
was as severe a New Deal critic in
some respects as was Smith, there can
be little doubt that his remarks were
far less pleasing than Smith's to a
great many Republican party cap-
tains. He left them in no less doubt
about what Borah might do in cer-
tain eventualities at Cleveland than
Genial Jim Farley must be about
what Friend Al may do, post Phila-
delphia.
Despite its Borah-for-President
trappings and the oft repeated re-
marks of Representative "Ham" Fish
of New York, that Borah's speech
left it just as much in doubt as ever
whether he actually is seeking the
Republican nomination for himself.
Having had sad experience in a Re-
publican national convention or two
with "back room" selections of party
nominees, Borah was hammering at
the dangers of "uninstructed" dele-
gations more than he was at the New
Deal. And he distinctly gave aid
and comfort to the enemy by joining
in sardonic fashion in the New Deal
Democratic chorus of boo-ing at
Smith.
SENATOR JOE ROBINSON, select-
ed New Deal anti-Smith keynot-
er, popped off almost simultaneously
with Borah. Yet this is to be noted
as to Robinson's remarks: They were
obviously designed in a far more re-
strained mood than were Borah's for
example. Robinson set out to state
the case of Smith '28 and Smith '33
et al. vs. Smith '36. It cramped the
usual Robinsonian style of delivery,
which is vehement, if not choleric,
when at its best.
That is administration strategy, be-
yond doubt. It follows the pattern of
Roosevelt strategy throughout the
long course of the Roosevelt-Smith
breech, dating back even to the two
Roosevelt gubernatorial administra-
tions in New York. Obviously, the
idea of the Robinson answer must
have been born at the White House.
And just as obviously, no direct presi-
dential reply to Smith's Liberty
League attack is to be expected.
THE SCREEN
AT THE MICHIGAN
"CEILING ZERO"

A warner Bros. picture starring James
Cagney and Pat O'Brien with June
Travis, Stuart Erwin, and others.
If one has seen the recent Cagney-
O'Brien pictures about sailors and
"devil-dogs," which were intended
to recruit new men for the defense
of the nation, he will in all probability
decide not to see "Ceiling Zero." It
should be mentioned first, then, that
"Ceiling Zero" is well-acted and ex-
citing, has nothing to do with our
armed forces, and is worth seeing.
The film is based upon the Broad-
way production and has apparently
gained much of its unity and force
thereby. It tells the story of the last
few days in the life of Dizzy Davis,
commercial pilot and reprobate,
whose tragic end is sufficiently heroic
to wash away his sins. The sense of
pleasant surprise that one feels at
this encounter with an unhappy
Hollywood ending may, unfortunately
nullify the tragic effect.
It's the best chance Cagney has
been given in some littleuwhile and
he doesn't muff it. Of course, there
are those who don't like Cagney.
June Travis is a new-comer. Whe-
ther her brand of good looks is suf-
ficiently different to hold attention
long is a debatable question. It is
certain, however, that her screen ca-
reer will be short if everyone steals
scenes from her the way Cagney does.
