weakened finance, of which devaluation is evi-
dence, and the poverty of the people, which de-
valuation aggravates, may well lead Mussolini
again to war as an outlet for discontent.
At any rate, newspaper accounts of the de-
valuation decree in Italy made us glad once
again that we live in the United States, for all
its rainy weather. In order to achieve the worthy
purpose of keeping capital in securities, for in-
stance, Mussolini resorted to the dictatorial prac-
tices of compelling all owners of real estate to
subscribe five per cent of the capital value of the
property to a government loan, at the same time
increasing the real estate tax three and one half
lira per thousand.
Very kindly, Mussolini allowed limited liability
companies to distribute dividends in excess of
six per cent, a thing once forbidden, but only
against sharply graduated levy taxes.
If we rightly recall, the Roosevelt administra-
tion, three years ahead of Italy in devaluation,
allowed its "subjects" to make up their own mind
what they would do with their money.

Explanation Wanted
To the Editor:
It would be interesting to several hundred
University students to know who or what is
responsible for the deplorable condition existing
in the music school in regard to the recently
called Choral Union tryouts. Tryouts were called
for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this
week for two hours each ofternoon. Each day
at' least 100 students have stood in line for two
hours and at least half of them have been turned
away at the end of that time.
These students are interested in Choral Union
because of the opportunity it gives them to ex-
press themselves in music and to hear good
music. However, these people have classes and
other activities to take up their time. Many
students have waited at least two hours for two
days in succession only to be turned away. Tak-
ing anywhere from six to ten minutes for
each tryout, no more than 12 people at the
most can be accommodated in an hour, yet the
music school allows 75 or 100 students to stand
in line hoping for a chance.
One would judge that there must be more
than one person on the music school faculty
capable of trying out student voices, thus mak-
ing things move in a manner efficient to suggest
the operations of a large university instead of a
line-up for a small-town bank night.
The tryouts were supposed to last through
Wednesday and it was announced before tryouts
started on that day that the soprano section
was already closed, which is certainly unfair
to many capable singers.
In years previous the tryouts have been con-
ducted by a number of people on the music
school faculty and the reason for the incon-
venient and time-wasting change in the method
demands explanation. If proper thought had
been given to the situation some other arrange-
ment, alphabetical or numerical might have been
devised so that those people who had been wait-
ing for days could resume their former places
on the following day.
This is no personal "gripe," but the combined
opinion of a large number of students questioned
while standing in line. We would all appreciate
an explanation of this situation from the music
school-S-S.C.H., '37A
Local Politics
To the Editor:
All through my years in the University of
Michigan the professors impressed upon us
students the necessity for intelligent thinking;
our responsibility as citizens, they said, was to
study the facts and think things through be-

fore making our decisions on economic, social
and political issues. In view of this very sound
advice, it is surprising to me to know that those
wards in Ann Arbor in which the faculty men
reside are among the heaviest Republican wards
in the State.
Those Republicans wards have re-elected to
office for twelve years a Probate Judge in Wash-
tenaw County who is not even a lawyer. The
Probate Judge has the highly technical task of
probating all wills; a task requiring thorough
legal training. Yet this man never set foot
in a law school in his life, unless to look at they
architecture. The Prosecuting Attorney is a
Republican now seeking a fourth term when
in his first campaign for the position he had
advertised in the papers that he promised the
people never to seek a third term to office. Sim-
ilar disturbing facts could be mentioned as to the
other Republican incumbents who are in office
because the lethargic faculty fails to practice
what it preaches to us students. The Democrats
offer on their local ticket a candidate for
Probate Judge, Harold D. Golds, who is a lawyer
and a Michigan grad. They offer as Prosecut-
ing Attorney Hubert Thompson, graduate of the
Michigan Law School. .They offer as Circuit
Court Commissioners Arthur Lehman and Jo-
seph Zwerdling, both graduates of Michigan Law
School. Zwerdling is a Phi Beta Kappa and
honor student in Law School. Lehman was also
an honor student. These are the calibre of men
the Democratic party offers here in Washtenaw
County.
Will the faculty practice what it preaches, and
vote intelligently for competent men, whatever
their ticket? Or will they cling to an illogical
and slavish adherence'ptontraditinnll nif+,. ,r'

"-the horses are bunched very closely as they

A couple of early sprinters are out of the pic-
ture, but most of the good horses are still in it.
I can make out the colors of a Washtenaw

coming up very fast on the outside. There's dirty

will undoubtedly set a lot of these boys down.

ing fast now, Balanced Budget, no Lower House-

he did, folks, a beautiful bid. It looked like a
blanket finish to me. The camera apparatus
hasn't been perfected as yet so results will not
be official until Monday evening.
"-it's a great scene down here on the track
now, the jockeys are weighing in before Judge
Bursley. The horses are blanketed over and be-
ing taken down, according to my operator on
the track, they're being taken down to the
Pretzel Bell. The jockeys, obviously under great
tension throughout this gruelling grind are slap-
ping each other on the back and arguing about
who won. Johnny Becker, Ted Allen, Herb
Baker, Carl Gerstacker, Don Effler, Dick Coombs,
Nor Steinberg, Murray Campbell, Dick Kendrick
and Bob Hendricks are gathering their clans
about them down there. The boys are kidding
them, and telling them what a great job they've
done, and now the trainers and stable boys are
each grabbing their respective rider and they're
off to celebrate."
The tension is broken, but the verdict won't
be announced until Tuesday when the Freshman
Trophy winner is announced. Watch Tuesday's
Daily for an account of how they ran with the

Tokyo Government in dealing with the Chinese

irregulars responsible, a serious Sino-Japanese
outbreak seems unlikely. Japanese editorials
evidence some impatience with the failure of the
Nanking Government to deal effectively with
anti-Japanese demonstrations, but advise no
more stringent action than that which a parent
might employ in attending to an incorrigible
child. The incident does bring to the fore, how-
ever, the question of future outbreaks, not only in
the Chinese domain, but on the other asiatic
fronts as well.
Much more serious than a war involving China
and Japan, and certainly more threatening than
an American-Japanese conflict, is the awesome
specter of a Russo-Japanese war. Ever since
the Manchurian outbreak changed the geog-
raphy of the Far East, rumors of such an im-
pending occurrence have been freely circulating.
Japanese writers, keen observers of the asiatic
scene seem to agree that the chances of hos-
tilities with the Soviet in the immediate future
are steadily diminishing. The two countries
are all too conscious of one another's strength,
they feel. The Russians, at the time of the
Manchurian affair, fearful of Japanese en-
croachments, have since developed a border
bristling with arms, and have made it known
that they intend not to cede "an inch of Rus-
sian soil." The Japanese have not mistaken Rus-
sian sincerity . in this matter and apparently
would not risk a conflict with the Soviet Union
unless - deliberately provoked. The mutual re-
spect for one another's capacities, however, have
removed the element of provocation to such an
extent that at least a temporary guarantee
against war remains. Not so assuring are the

SCREEN
Wherefore Art Thou,
Box Office?
By ARTHUR C. GLADD
(From the Daily Northwestern)
THEY have made a movie in Holly-
wood called "Romeo and Juliet,"
and you have probably seen it. The
producers gratefully acknowledge
their debt to William Shakespeare,
which is very white of the producers.
It is statistically interesting to note
that the two million dollars spent by
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in manufac-
turing this film would not only have
enabled William Shakespeare to build
a dozen super-playhouses - gilded
Globes-buthalso could have pur-
chased for him most of the London
of his day. "Romeo and Juliet" is
the second of Shakespeare's plays to
be adapted to the screen, but unfor-
tunately it is probably not the last.
Exit Excitement
The producers were motivated, no
doubt, by a belief in the universality
)f Shakespeare's plays. Their poten-
tial appeal to people of all classes and
all ages has been admitted by scholars
down through the centuries. Of
course, very few people read Shake-
speare for excitement, nowadays. This
is because very few people are
equipped to enjoy him. Earnest stu-
dents find him a lot of fun. The
Globe Theatre organization, at Chi-
cago's World's Fair, proved that he
could be made a lot of fun to an
increasing number of people, and this
suggested that, if Shakespeare could
be presented in the right way, he
might be made a lot of fun to every-
body, just as he was in the days of
Elizabeth.
His Universality
The Globe Theatre organization
was on the right track. Hollywood
is not. Hollywood seeks to popularize
Shakespeare through million dollar
sets, lavish scenery, and great cinema
names. Shakespeare scholars are im-
ported to aid production-may Ham-
let's ghost haunt them! Historians
are shipped in to authenticate the
settings. And these are made ac-
curate and stupendous, even beyond
the bard of Avon's imagination. For
surely he had not the picture of fif-
teenth century Verona which these
historians give us. He knew not these
minute details of costume.
Certainly it is not Shakespeare's
encyclopedic knowledge of history
and places which makes his appeal
universal. Nor is it his skill i plot
weaving. He has never been handed
laurels for either of these.His claim
to universality lies in the beauty of
his language-the powerful way he
could express emotion, through his
characters. It is by showing that his
emotional expression is just as valid
for moderns as it was for Elizabeth-
ans, that Shakespeare canzbe pop-
ularized. The Globe Theatre organi-
zation, with true Elizabethan infor-
mality, succeeded in doing this. One
could realize, when they performed,
that human nature had not changed
since Shakespeare's time. The full
meaning of the Bard's language was
brought out.
If Hollywood has succeeded, its
"Romeo and Juliet" should hold au-I
diences glued to their seats in the
same fashion that "Death Takes a
Holiday," and "The Front Page" did.
It will be naive to say that since I,
was not so held, neither was the rest
of the audience-but that is all I can
go by. Shakespeare's language was
lost for me in the magnificent set-
tings: I doubt whether anyone who
was- not a Shakespeare student left
the theatre reciting to himself frag-
ments of beautiful passages heard.
And is not that the test of Shake-
speare? I think the strongest im-
pression the movie left was that of
beautifully dressed actors who moved,
dripping with emotion, through fairy-
land scenery. Certainly there is some-!
thing moving about a combination of
these three. But is it Shakespeare?c
Terrific I

As people pushed outward through
the foyer, you could hear Babbitt
terms like "marvelous," "grand," and
tremendous" in free circulation. Yes,
SHollywoodsis marvelous, grand, and
tremendous. It is also colossal.
It is quite simple to say that some-
thing is "grand." And it is just as,
easy to believe it. There is a sort
of self-hypnosis, where art is con-
cerned, under the spell of which
people will think that an emaciatedr
ascetic, reading Sanskrit before a
pale pink backdrop, is ineffably
touching. Especially if they knew
they were supposed to think it so.
But It's Art
So Hollywood is not popularizing
Shakespeare-or even making him
richer to his educated following. It
is capitalizing upon human weakness,
upon the piteous human notion that
what is art must be enjoyed. There
is no sadder spectacle in life than
that of an individual forcing himself
to have a good time. And art appre-
ciation can call forth such gritting
of teeth, such tenacity!
Yes, and if Hollywood were to pro-
duce an Alger opus-with a who's
who cast of stellar names, and per-
haps Leslie Howard as Jack, the
Young Bootblack-it could, with the'
help of two million dollars, make it'
just as profound as "Romeo and Ju-
liet." And if people thought that
Jack, the Young Bootblack was great
literature-as indeed some do-the
theatres would be filled to capacity.
But let us not be fooled.

i

B YHIS SPEECH last Thursday
evening the President would have
us believe that through the influence of his New
Deal national income has increased from 38 bil-
lion dollars in 1932 to around 60 billion dollars
in 1936. While these figures are themselves
attacked by Republican leaders, we will accept
them at their numerical value.
The thing that the President, and for that
matter most of us, did not take into considera-
tion is the fact that while income went up the
purchasing power of the dollar decreased, due
in part to the 59 cent dollar, the drought, the
AAA and general returning prosperity. Bureau
of Labor statistics (with the 1926 dollar as a
base) show the purchasing power of the dollar
to have been around 152 in 1932 and to be about
126 at the present time-a 20 per cent decrease in
purchasing power. We must reduce all state-
ments on national income to a common base
before we pass judgment on them.'
As we have said, the general rise in prices
throughout the nation (according to the whole-
sale index) is something like 20 per cent. Simple
mathematics show the 38 billion 1932 income
to equal about 46 billion 1936 dollars or the 60
billion 1936 income to equal something like
48 billion 1932 dollars.
Thus we see that the President is wrong
in claiming a 22 billion dollar increase in na-
tional income-the real increase in national
income being the important thing. Similarly,
his opponents are wrong when they show a
great dollar difference between 1932 and 1929,
the 1929 income being about 53 billion 1932
dollars.
Figures in ' terms of dollars mean nothing,
relative values of dollars do-this is the fact
that must be borne in mind during the present
presidential campaign.
Italy
Devalues...
THE DEVALUATION of the Italian
lira, unlike that of the franc,
came as something of a surprise.
Whereas the French currency had been waver-
ing for a considerable period, the Italian mone-
tary system was able to be held in place by dic-
tatorial government decrees. And although
there is no doubt that business will profit by the
action of its dictator, largely through an in-
creased foreign trade, nevertheless Mussolini's
cooperation with the great powers was not ex-
actly anticipated.
Especially is the Italian action enlightening
in view of Adolf Hitler's refusal (in effect) to de-
value the mark or enter into international agree-
ments for stabilization. The two fascist coun-
tries have been tending in the past to work more
