THE FORUM
Democracy, Not Guns
To the Editor:
Having for many months rejoiced in the sane
liberalism of the present Daily editorial policy,
it is with regret that I feel bound to take issue
with the editorials of last Friday and Sunday,
"Democracy and Militarism," and "A Question of
National Policy."
Granting the most that Mr. Mowrer implied,
that fascism will in the near future sweep the
world or be wiped out, which I question, I can-
not believe that as the political organizations
of so-called democracy now appears either the
threat, preparation, or use of a vast opposing
military machine will cripple or destroy fascism.
Granting further, that true democracy ought to
assume responsibility for defending itself with
military force, which I question, it is neverthe-
less fairly obvious that no such democracy, or
near approach to it, now lives. If America,' or
Great Britain, were now true democracies, con-
trolled by the people for the people-that is to
say, socialistic democracies, and were headed by
experts responsible, to the people as a whole,
rather than to special and secret interests, then,
and only then, might those nations safely arm
in defense of what reason had won since the
dark ages-to which fascism would return us.
But the fact is that America is not a true democ-
racy, even with its comparative advantages of
civil liberties. It seems to me therefore seriously
to be doubted that such democracy as we have,
in the emergency of genral war, could long keep
any vestige of even its present nature, and if
it did not in that emergency fall completely into
the hands of its present economic matters, and
so into fascism, it may be likewise doubted that
it could emerge from that war without important
losses in principle. Mr. John Dewey and Mr.
Norman Thomas have both pointed out that
American democracy in the Great War lost,
and has not regained, a good share of the ideals
it had previously won.
Were war declared tomorrow, I should wonder
what future I should be drafted to preserve
What reason has any of my generation to trust
that he could, by resolutely following the dictum
of the President and Congress assembled, further
the cause of liberty and justice? Munitions men
and industrial and diplomatists (such as our
recent visitor, Mr. Zeder) are still pretty vivid in
my memory. What reason have we, the young,
to believe that the, annihilation of Germany,
Italy, Japan, etc., would insure the life of an
eagle of liberty which has not yet "been really
fledged? Or would we assassinate possible for-
eign masters only in order to subject ourselves
to masters now itching at home? However one
minimizes the danger of fascism in America, it
does exist.
What the true solution is, I am not competent
to suggest. But I submit that it might be wiser
to concentrate our efforts toward democracy
on the growth of its real and broad meaning
in these United States. The contest being fought
all over the world today is one between ignor-
ance and enlightenment, these symbolized in
systems, not always clearly defined, but identifi-
able. It is not time, even for those who believe
there will be such a time, to take arms to dem-
onstrate an unconquerable faith in justice. In
the race between darkness and light, liberalism
must become intellectually militant, leaving the
question of force to be settled when an absolute
blind-alley is reached. That time has not come.
-Robert C. B. Campbell.
Time And The Lirary
To the Editor:
Regularly every day, at the mystic hours of
noon and six o'clock, numbers of unwilling stu-
dents are swept out of the various campus study
halls and reading rooms, which then remain
closed for an unproductive hour. Ready or not,
out you go at the appointed time!
Insult, moreover, is added to injury. Full
fifteen minutes before the time of closing there
arises a great noise of shutting windows and

straightening chairs. Then, a good five minutes
before the zero hour, Wham! out go the lights,
and the psychological propulsion towards the
exit becomes so great as to be irresistible-a val-
uable quarter of an hour ruined.
What can the students do who have been so
rudely interrupted but gather up their unfin-
ished notes and flee into the great outdoors?
There is nowhere another reading room to go
to where their reference books are not securely
locked away. Only baffled rage, and the Long
League Line, remain.
Surely in an institution designed to promote
study such a situation is intolerable. It should
be quite possible to stagger the hours of the
Reading Room custodians in such a way that
no closing of the rooms was necessary between
7:45 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.
By what inevitable necessity is the entire
University compelled to eat at the same time?
Believe it or not, there are hundreds of students
here who are able to stave off the pangs of
hunger well beyondbthecurfewhours.
We' who are about to be swept out of the
Study Halls again tomorrow, protest! It is im-
possible always to finish one's work by the clock.
It is altogether maddening to be arbitrarily
stopped when one is on the verge of solving the
riddle of the Universe, or of running to cover
the Lost Atlantis. -Rudely Interrupted,
Serious Error

We were certainly pained to read this in your

BENEATH ****
****** IT ALL
._ lBy Bonth Williams s
W HEN HARRY KIPKE walked into the main
dining room of the Curtiss Hotel in Minne-
apolis Friday morning he was met at the door by
a Negro waiter who said, "Good morning, Mista
Kipke. I sho am glad to see you again."
That same waiter has been at the hotel for 25
years and first met Michigan's grid mentor when
he was an All-American punter at Michigan.
As a matter of fact the five waiters who took
care of the team during their stay, have been
bringing in more ice cream to Wolverine football
teams for the past decade. They are Michigan's
most ardent rooters and always sit just behind
the Michigan bench as Kip's guests.
THE BRIGHT SPOTS in Minneapolis remind
me very much of Columbus on the night
before a Michigan game-Columbus with the
dampers on, as it were. Night clubs are packed
to overflowing and people stand three deep at all
the respectable bars. Bob Crosby is at the Nic-
olet, the spot in Minneapolis, and they put on
one of the funniest fan dances anybody ever saw,
and by the way the Blackhawk is just the same
as always. Louis Prima is holding sway with a
hot trumpet and scotch is still half a buck a
crack . . . the waiters are just as indifferent, the
service just as punk, and approximately the same
number of suckers.
FREDD]M COLOMBO acted as spotter for Bry-
an Salm, Columbia broadcasting's 21-year-
old sports announcer, during Saturday's game
and turned in a darn good job, but when Will
Moore grabbed Ritchie's pass and streaked to-
wards the Wolverine goal late in the game, the
ardent Fred couldn't restrain himself. "Son of a
Dog" he roared into the mike as Bryan nudged
him frantically, and listeners were treated to one
of the infrequent slips of the radio world.
*. * * *
Very few people know that Ty Tyson, veteran
Detroit announcer has a. partner who is as es-
sential to him as a match to a Camel.
Doc Holland is the guy, and a darn sw'ell one.
He does a little broadcasting himself, but mostly
he's just Ty's silent partner. He acts as Ty's
eyes, spots numbers, calls the plays, and then
Herr Tyson translates them into his own radio
line. /
Ty and Doc have been together for 26 years
now, and they've missed mighty few ball games,
either grid or diamond. "How much longer do
you expect to last," I asked Doc.
"About three years," I hope. That's all I
want. Ty's voice will probably be shot by then,
and me, I've got an athletic heart. Five to
seven years is all anyone can expect to be at the
top in this racket, and we know it."
Doc, who put himself through school on his
athletic ability in three sports, went on, "Ty
and I come out here a couple of times a week to
teach broadcasting, and the guys we teach are
the ones who will very probably take our place,
but it's all in the game."
"This is what I like doing best in the world,
and I get paid for it, and as my dal always said,
'When you live, live in clover, for when you're
dead, you're dead all over.'"~

THEATRE
Stevedore: A Review
CONTEMPORARY THEATRE (for-
1merly New Theatre Union) presents
STEVEDORE, by Paul Peters and George
Sklar. Scenery by Edgar Cartright.
Auiditorium of the Detroit Institute
Costumes by Carmen Murphy. At the
of Arts. October 15 to 17.
By JAMES DOLL
THE LITTLE THEATRE movement
in Detroit has always had a hard
struggle and very little success. A
real community theatre-like Cleve-
land's for example-has never been
established in site of many false
starts and a few sustained efforts.
And Detroit has not been very
friendly recently to any sort of the-'
atrical enterprise-except Katherine
Cornell. That is one reason why the.
production of Stevedore was so en-
couraging. Saturday night it played
to an audience that filled the 1,200
seats of the Institute of Arts Audi-
torium; an audience made up of
people who have probably rarely gone
to the theatre at any time. Fortu-
nately they saw a show that will lead
them to go to the theatre again-
not only to plays with ideas in which
they are especially interested, but to
other good plays, too. They were un-
questionably moved by the emotion
that good theatre can arouse so well.
Stcvedore was one of the first plays
of the New York Theatre Union to
attract the attention of Broadway.
It is propaganda: less blatantly treat-
ed than in 'Till the Day I Die, but less
subtlely so than in Dead End or
Awake and Sing in which aspects of
the social system are . criticized
through presentation of a well-de-'
veloped specific situation without
presentation of a definite solution.
Stevedore begins with the revolt of
a single Negro against unfair dis-
crimination by the police and by em-
ployers; then, successively, coopera-
tion from a group of Negroes, from
white sympathizers, their determina-
tion to take a stand against their
enemies rather than shrinking away
or accepting further abuses. The
earlyincidents are treated with un-
certainty and hesitation by the au-
thors, but the theme is gripped more
strongly about half-way through the
play in a number of fine scenes and
a succession of climaxes. The di-
rector and actors, too, seemed uncer-
tain in these early scenes but came
through when the authors gave them
something better to work with. There
was excellent group acting in the
later scenes at the docks, in Binnie's
lunchroom, in the funeral scene (sim- I
ilar to the one in Porgy), and in the
street-fighting scene which ends the
play. The individuals in these scenes
seemed to know where they were and
what they were doing and the direc-
tor had trained them to work for a.
unified effect. Most of the more im-
portant parts were well acted. Espe-
cially good were Leon Smith as Lonny
Thompson, leader of the Negroes-
played in London by Paul Robeson;
Sue Powers as Binnie Taylor, owner
of the lunchroom; Lester McFall as
Blacksnake, an important , Negro
worker; Hal Phillips as Lem Morris,
white leader of the union. But the
production was notable for excellence
of ensemble rather than for indivi-
dual performances. And that was as
it should have been.
The production looked well on the
physical side-was dressed with im-
agination, the important settings
were sturdy and designed for effec-
tive use iof crowds.
It cannot be denied that many of
the most interesting productions of
the profession theatre in the last few
seasons have been plays with social
content. This production by the Con-
temporary Theatre of Detroit seems
to make this true of the amateur
theatre as well.

AT THE MICHIGAN
"DIMPLES"
Dimples is another Shirley Temple
production; as such it is a good pic-
ture, but you will have to be a staunch
Shirley Temple admirer to enjoy it
-Shirley is the picture.
This time Shirley is the grand-
daughter of "the professor," a down-
at-the-heel actor who has a tendency
toward being light-handed. Shirley is
the star of a neighborhood gang of
street entertainers. A wealthy lady
sees her, is captivated bythe child
and wants her to live with her. In
the meantime, the lady's nephew is
staging the original production of
Uncle Tom's Cabin. Shirley is to be
Eva. But the professor loses the
company's money and the show has
to be given up before opening. Things
eventually work around and Miss
Temple is seen as little Eva in the
death bed scene. Of course, there
is an all around happy ending.
Whether you care about watching
a child through an entire feature or.
not, Shirley is a clever entertainer
and and excellent child actress. She
has several opportunites to tap dance
and sing in Dimples. There is an
awfully big dose of Shirley Temple in
this picture, but the children in the
audience were enjoying it tremen-
dously.

Notice: Attention of all concerned,
and particularly of those having of-
fices in Haven Hall, or the Western
portion of the Natural Science Build-
ing, to the fact that parking of cars
in the driveway between these two
buildings is at all times inconvenient
to other users of the drive and some
times results in positive danger to
other drivers and to pedestrians on
the diagnoals and other walks. You
are respectfully asked not to park
there and if members of your family
call for you, especially at noon when
tarffic both on wheels and on foot is
heavy, it is especially urged that the
car wait for you in the parking space
adjacent to the north door of Uni-
versity Hall. Waiting in the drive-
way blocks traffic and involves con-
fusion, inconvenience and danger,
just as much when a person is sitting
in a car as when the car is parked
empty.

BOTH PRESIDENTIAL candidates
are committed to support of min-
imum wage legislation. In his telegram to the
Republican convention, Governor Landon said
that he would stand firmly behind a constitu-
tional amendment, if it cannot be otherwise ac-
complished, to see that women and children
receive reasonable wages. The Democrats at
Philadelphia agreed that the problem must
be treated federally, and also by amendment if
necessary.
However, neither candidate, unless we are
mistaken, has touched the subject since his
namination.
The Supreme Court has declared both federal
and state minimum wage laws unconstitutional.
Said Chief Justice Hughes:
"If the people desire to give Congress the
powers to regulate industries within the state
and the relations of employer and employes with-
in these industries, they are at liberty to declare
their will in the approved manner, but it is not
for the court to amend the Constitution by judi-
cial decision."
Soon the Supreme Court is expected to pass
on the constitutionality of the minimum wage
law of the state of Washington, of which the
Washington Supreme Court said:
"It is true that the employer and the employe
are deprived to a certain extent of their liberty
to contract by the minimum wage law. How-
ever, if the deprivation is with due process, if it
corrects known and stated public evil, if it
promotes the public welfare-that is, if it is a
reasonable exercise of the police power-it is a
proper exercise of legislative power."
The United States Supreme Court however,
thought differently in the case of the New York
minimum wage laws,dand it is not likely that
it will agree with the decision of the Washington
Court.
The result, as President Roosevelt called it in
the unfortunate interview following the NRA de-
cision, is a "no-man's land," where neither state
nor 'federal government may correct patent evils.
The inescapable necessity is constitutional
amendment. The subject has not been treated
in the course of the campaign, but pressure on
both parties, great enough to enforce its inclu-
sion in the party platforms, is even greater now,
accentuated by the adverse New York State rul-
ing (and the Washington ruling, if it should be
adverse) and will surely be strong enough to
enact an amendment in the next Congressional
session however the national election may go.
There will be this difference, however, pre-
dicts Lewis Wood in the New York Times:
"The fight then would involve a far greater
issue than the mere protection of minimum wage

A Review
KIRSTEN FLAGSTAD CONCERT
By WLLIAM J. LICHTENWANGER
HUMBLY and simply we try to express some-
thing of the feelings aroused in us by the
concert last evening, but we can only remember
a statement made some two years ago by Dr.
Earl V. Moore, the morning following a-THE-
recital by Artur Schnabel.. In speaking to one
of his classes, Dr. Moore said: "If there is still
anyone so Victorian as to keep a diary, the most
fitting tribute he could pay to the memory of
last night's memorable performance would be
simply to place upon the blank page of yester-
day's date the one word, 'Schnabel.'" A similar
act would, we feel, in this instance be far more
expressive than anything we might say. Wit and
a critical eye (or ear), the two chief ingredients
of a popular review, we have not; after the first
number,.we forgot the task which lay ahead,
and surrendered ourselves entirely to the magic
of Mme. Flagstad's voice and personality. If
you must know whether she flatted the high B
(her highest note of the evening), or if her
low C (likewise her lowest) surpasses that of
,_,_read the metropolitan critics. They may
know; we don't.
But, for those who are interested, we can tell
of the glory of the artist's voice. It is not a
"golden" or a "silver" voice, and probably there
are greater voices than Flagstad's in respect to
sheer "quality" alone. But few indeed are the
singers who have. a voice so powerful and thrill-
ing that Richard Wagner must even now be
smiling contentedly in Valhalla, so warm and
appealing that Grieg is endeared as he never
was before, so profoundly gay that Frank Bridge
glows with new life, AND s5 marvelously con-
trolled that there is no technique, but only the
songs themselves. And fewer -still are the artists
with such a personality-noble, charming, com-
manding, enticing, as the composer desires. And
may we say that we can see Kirsten Flagstad as
a charming and sympathetic Sieglinde, or as a
profoundly moving Isolde, but it must be as Brun-
hilde-the Brunhilde of Goetterdaemmerung-
that she is greatest. Never was there a voice,
