Reminder No. 2 ...
TONIGHT at the pep meeting in
Hill Auditorium there will be no
high school students admitted, and for this rea-
son we believe that the Men's Council is jus-
tified in asking the student body to behave in
a respectful manner during the 45 minute pro-
SINCE MOST SECTIONS in the
country have broadly indicated
their slant in the coming election there remains
the farmer to corral. Notwithstanding the pres-
ent necessity of some kind of permanent agri-
cultural policy it might be expected that a play
be made for the farmer's vote. Consequently the
farmer stands fair to be most well remembered
by both parties after the coming election. He is
wooed by both candidates but with inconsistency
Out of three years of experience with bumper
surplus crops and drought shortages has evolved
the long time program which is the basis of
President Roosevelt's claim for farm votes. There
are two major features, one which under the
Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act
provides for five hundred million dollars to be
paid annually to farmers who will shift from
soil depleting to soil conserving crops, and the
other which retires marginal land, land at the
margin of least production, to good and grass
land. Crop insurance and commodity loans
will be granted to farmers as an aid in absorbing
the shocks of excess and drought and in main-
taining an "ever normal granary." Such loans
will permit farmers to store crops in years of
surplus for use or sale in lean years. In addi-
tion help is promised to farm cooperatives, in
refinancing farm indebtedness, and in alleviat-
ing the serious ills of the farm tenancy situa-
tion. Indirectly at least the Democratic platform
insists upon government production control
wherever and whenever that might be necessary,
With the Roosevelt farm program evolving so
swiftly Governor Landon has hardly had time
for more than a hurried assent to these emerg-
ing policies. The agricultural policies of both
presidential candidates are in neap agreement.
However there are several important divergen-
cies. Landon promises payment of New Deal
committments, relief checks to drought victims,
cash payments for cooperation in water and
soil conservation insurance, warehouse law
amendments to facilitate loans on stored crops,
limitation of subsidies to the "production level of
the farmer's type farm," and in general economy
in federal finances. So far the two programs are
essentially in harmony but in other matters, in
the instance of the tariff for example, Governor
ents in general have not ultimately benefitted
the farmer more by their stimulation of general
business conditions and exports than they have
hurt him by allowing the immediate competition
of certain imports.
In the matter of subsidies, not to be outdone,
Governor Landon advocates tariff-equivalent,
cash benefit payments to give farmers protection
analogous to that afforded to manufacturers by
the tariff. But, since in the spirit of the entire
Republican platform, which declares against cen-
tralized government control, there are no pro-
duction checks provided for, it is difficult to see
how this expenditure may not mushroom enor-
mously. Indeed government experts at Wash-
ington calculate that the Landon-Hope plans
will cost over two billion dollars annually, a cost
which exceeds the total AAA annual outlay for
Avowedly the Republican platform declares
that the budget must be balanced, not by taxing
but by cutting down government expenditure. It
can hardly be expected that relief expenditures
will not be sharply cut. Whether intended or
not there will be. effected a sharp discrimination
against the urban population in favor of the
agricultural population in the allocation of relief
funds. In view of the potential effort on the
part of the Republicans in reducing the budget
it would seem in the matter of this proposed
expenditure that they were gratuitously placing
an obstacle in their own path, and emphasizing
at the same time an obvious platform contra-
It may be seen that the Democratic and Re-
publican agricultural programs are almost in
agreement, but there do exist disagreements and
these disagreements demand the serious atten-
tion and analysis of every voter, implying as
they do contradiction and vote capturing activ-
ity rather than straightforward attention to a

Orchids And Scallions
To the Editor:
Orchids to the gentleman who wrote, the
letter in Tuesday's Daily, concerning the Spanish
situation. I found Professor Aiton's remarks in
Sunday's Daily most unpleasant reading.
As one who still believes in democracy and
self-government, (a few people still do) I have
gradually toughened myself against the attitude
assumed by about ninety-eight per cent of the
public press in the present Spanish fiasco. After
all, most newspapers have been lined up with the
forces of reaction for quite a number of decades.
I have further come to expect the average un-
educated protestant to become a member of
such organizations as the Ku Klux Klan. I am
used to seeing Liberty Leaguers and Legionnaires
use the word "Americanism" in a sense that
would have made most of the founding fathers
All these afflictions I can bear with a certain
amount of composure. But when I see profes-
sors, gentlemen supposed to represent the cream
of American (I said American) intellect and
culture, line themselves up with the blackest
forces of ignorance and reaction menacing
the world today,, that still hurts.
And their reasons! Law and Order! Normalcy!
When this sudden overwhelming desire for law
and order which has become so evident recently
among our more well-to-do citizens? And how
in heaven's name can anyone call that group
which has refused to abide by the will of the
majority of the people, which has resorted to
war to gain its own ends and as a result has
brought down upon the head of unhappy Spain
one of theamost terrible catastrophies that can
overcome a nation-how can anyone call that
party the party of law and order?
Anyhow, as a good American, I am suspicious
of such phrases. After all, our most law-abiding
citizens are corpses. The Anglo-Saxon peoples,
among whom I am proud to claim ancestry,
obtained whatever rights and freedom they pos-
sess by incessant, struggle, and thereby estab-
lished their reputation as one of the most
troublesome and turbulent races known to man.
Did the king wish to collect taxes? He had
to haggle with the parliament. Did the nobles
become too haughty? Sooner or later they had
the people to reckon with. And the people?
One couldn't tell them what prayer-book to use,
what customs to obey, what wars to fight in.
It was simply awful! Not a drop of obedience in
And that's the way we've been, English and
American, for a long,long time, like it or not.
Though I do feel constrained to add for the
benefit of those who don't like it, (and I am
becoming more and more aware of the fact
that there are many who don't) that they
know where they can go-and I don't mean
All of which outburst only serves to point a
moral: A man may be a Democrat, a Repub-
lican, or even a Socialist or a Communist, and
still legitimately call himself an American, but a
Fascist-let us speak no ill of the dead.

Y MOST profound apologies to Prof. Hene-
man who smokes neither pipe, cigarette, nor
cigar and who has never squandered a single
nickel in a baffle board. My ace stooge has made
his first blunder, and he has gone to drape his
head with sackcloth and ashes. Just before he
shuffled off he did tell me whom he had con-

already gotten into the matter deeply enough.

I AM IN RECEIPT of a letter from a young
lady in Mosher Jordan which I shall not
print. All contributions, whether good, bad or
indifferent, will be graciously received and most
of them printed, but plain, unadulterated dirt
gces into the waste basket. O.K. stooge, you can
come out of your corner now and take a letter.
Dear Miss- :
For the first and last time I wish to make
it quite clear to you that I don't give a
damn who took Minny Schultz out last
night. What anyblody does around here is
their own business, as far as I am concerned.
The last thing this column will ever do is
print damaging stories.
To my way of thinking there is nothing
cheaper than a gossipy girl with a dirty
mind, especially one who goes out of her
way to record the details of dormitory dither.
Obviously anyone who could become so
concerned over the affairs of others, can
have very few social interests of her own.
If you must find an outlet for that insatiable,
prying nose of yours, I should advise you to
industriously undertake a scientific career.
Why not commence with Micro-Technique?
SPORTSWRITER D'ARCY at Michigan State
couldn't resist the urge to reply to George
Andros' swell column of a week ago when he
took Mr. D'Arcy down about seventeen pegs
for his characterization of Michigan as "just
another football team." Andy ended his column
with "a worm may turn, but it's still a worm."
D'Arcy, not to be outdone, finished his letter.
with "no matter how high a man may climb,
the worms will get him in the end."

Art (itna League
And Movie History
EDITOR'S NOTE: One of the worth-
while but little known artistic organi-
zations on the campus has been the
Art Cinema League. One of the direc-
tors of the organization prepared the
following statement of its purposes and
its coming historical series.
T HE LAYMAN seems to have an
aversion toward calling anything
inexpensive by the name "art." It is
pretty safe to venture that if we
should try to peddle Rembrandts at
l dime each we could hardly get a
hearing but the mere mention of
thousands of American dollars usual-
ly draws an audience. And perhaps
it is this reason which has prevented
Americans and others from viewing
motion pictures as an art form. For
40 cents you can see the best of
There is, however, a growing num-
ber of people who insist that human
passions in celluloid may be as ef-
fectively portrayed as they can be on
canvas. Locally the Art Cinema
League acts for that group. Nation-
ally, the Museum of Modern Art Film
Library is holding the fort. There
are other similar groups in the coun-
try but we concern ourselves now
with the latter because it is lending
the Art Cinema League a. highly val-
uable series of pictures dating back
to the time your father was probably
looking for a job--1893.
Now the idea behind the Museum is
neither to employ librarians at so
much per, nor is it to let you laugh
at pie-pitching or Theda Bara's
drooping eye makeup. It is rather to
instill into 'public cinema conscious-
ness the idea that movies have a tra-
dition and above all a development
similar to that of painting or writ-
ing. It is felt too, that we might sop
up a little appreciation of the history
of movies not from an antiquarian
point of view but from that of a
normal man interested in reaping the
most from the 40 odd seeds he sows
in box offices so many times a year.
For after all, the moving picture is
the sole great art form peculiar to
the 20th century. The Art Cinema
League since its inception has felt
that we should know something about
its potentialities as art. The League,
therefore, has brought to town what
are probably the high water marks
of recent movie time. "The Infor-
mer'," "La Martinelle," "Crime and
Punishment," (in French) being
among those presented.
The coming historical series is un-
doubtedly the best opportunity you'll
have to acquire an education in the
art of movie appreciation and crit-
icism. Like any other library thej
film library has categories. They
follow: 'Development of Narrative,1
Rise of the American Film, D. W.
Frifflith, German Influence, the Talk-I
ies, the "Western" Film, Comedies,
Film and Contemporary Life, Mystery]
and Violence, Screen Personalities.
Under, each category, of course,
films will be shown which best char-
acterize it. The whole list of picturesI
ist much too long for this space but
we might as well turn the light qn for
a minute. There is for instance, "The
Execution of Mary Queen of Scots,"
1893-4, cast unkown, "The Great
Train Robbery," 1903; "Queen Eliza-1
beth," 1911, with Saral Bernhardt;
D. W. Griffith's "Intolerance," 1916;
"The Freshman," with Harold Lloyd;
"The Sex Life of the Polyp," 1928,
with Bob Benchley and last but not
least, the first Mickey Mouser, "Steam
Boat Willie," 1928.
Now it might be objected that thel
sex life of the polyp can have little1
to do with movies as art or historyI
or anything else for that matter.1
However, our august personages, such+
as Mary Pickford, J. D. Rockefeller,
Jr., and John Hay Whitney who back
the Film Library of the Museum of
Modern Art, might reply said sex life
et. al., was evoked by a demand from
the massesor it wouldn't have been
made, and as such deserves a mention
in a study of movie development. In;
your more vertical moments after the
series you'll not likely regret the
dollar spent for the series member-
ship card and probably will appre-
ciate current and future films with
their genesis and growth as art in
Many people have wondered as to
what is the reason for our organiza-
tion's unorthodox method in selling
this series. We do not advertise. No
time, place, or date is disclosed to
the public. Why cloak the program,
with mystery you may justly ask?
Our answer is that we signed an
agreement with the film library
which stated that we would withhold
this information except to members.
The Film Library feels it must ad-
here to such a policy to prevent the
pictures from getting into unscrupu-
lous hands which will exploit the
series commercially. Thus, purchase
a membership card at the Union,
League, or Wahr's, and you will be
given membership which not only in-
cludes admission to the entire series
but also information of any private
pictures we might show.

As Others See It
For Glory Or-?
(From the University Daily Kansan)
RECENT CARTOON appearing in the Chi-
cago "Daily News" shows, among other
things, a man representing the college counting
thousands of dollars while a football star looks
on, musing "If I took a couple of bucks they'd
Yes, the cartoon is concerned with the debate
over sponsored college football games. Since the
Atlantic Refinery Company announced that it
intended to sponsor a number of games in the
East this fall, several other advertisers have
made like arrangements. The Ohio Oil Company
will broadcast the entire Notre Dame schedule,
Dodge Motor Car dealers will sponsor the ma-
jority of the games the University of Minnesota
will play, and so on. But still nothing is said
concerning that absorbing question-what is the
football player going to get out of it?
It's a curious situation. It is one thing to be
fighting for the dear old Alma Mater, but an-r
other to be giving one's all for the Ohio Oil
Company. Perhaps the player is supposed to
look at it philosophically and say, "This is no
concern of mine. What if the college does use
me to make money? I still have the glory . ."
But it's hard to eat glory, and most football
players could use a little money to good advan-
tage. And even if they didn't need it, they
should still be paid for they have as much right
to the sponsor's money as the college. Perhaps
more, for it is the players who risk their necks.
The college may train the men and supply
the stadium, but the fact 'remains that it is the
team that takes the chances. There should be
turned away because their schedules and activ-
ities prevented them from "beating the mob"
to the door.
The tryouts were scheduled up until Wednes-
day at six o'clock but long before that, the so-
pranos were sent away and then all women were
sent away because the chorus was filled. Is
Mr. Hamilton so sure that the best voices came
first in the line or it simpler to take names as
they came than to hear everyone and then select
