Of Local Concern. .
T HE DAILY has been guilty of ne-
glecting the dog fight in Maynard
Street in favor of national issues. Here we have
been discussing the presidential election and
omitting any mention of such burning campus
issues as whether somebody said: "I don't think
football players will carry much weight this year,
anyway." (viz. The Michigan Daily, Oct. 21, page
It is difficult to discuss Martha's statement
with equanimity because there are so many
angles to it. Did Mildred really say this, and
just where was she and in what condition when
she said it if she did say it? And then was Vin-
cent Butterfly (ibid) playing cricket when he
aired the whole matter, that is, if Marion really
said any such thing? Did she mean that Coach
Kipke's young men were not very heavy, be-
cause if she did she might well be sat on by
one of Coach Kipke's boys, and again, if she
did she is foolish because we would never say
anything like that about Coach Kipke's boys be-
cause we know they are heavy, and also tough,
and we think that a Michigan football team car-
ries plenty of weight with it wherever it goes,
and not only physical weight either.
To get to the larger issues of these campus
elections, we regret very much that the State
Street party doesn't want a man with real ex-
ecutive talent, one such as the Washtenaw party
has gone on record as favoring. Remembering
that it was only the executive efficiency of last
year's president of the sophomore class that pre-
served the integrity of that group, we peer with
considerable concern into the future and pre-
dict disintegration for the class unless it chooses
its man wisely. Who, we ask, is going to preside
at a mass meeting in case the sophomore class
should have one? Perhaps it is true that they
have never had one within memory, but they
Moreover, it is disgraceful the way no one
knows who is the president of his class. We
haven't even a remote idea who the presidents
were last year, but we probably would recognize
them if we should see them, because their pic-
tures were in the year book for leading class
dances, or something. A strong leader and
capable executive wouldn't allow himself to be
forgotten like that,
One thing bothers us. Why is it that indepen-
dents want, to form a coalition? They are gen-
erally fairly intelligent and we can't understand
why they don't let the fraternity and sorority
people go ahead and have their fun-and also
pay the class dues that they never pay anyway
-and sit aside, politely laughing? Like football,
it's more fun from the sidelines. But instead
(sigh) they'll probably rush on, create an issue,
a Platform, some Candidates and have a Party.

WAS COLLEGE WORTH WHILE? By John R.
Tunis. Reviewed by Stuart Chase of the
Harvard Class of 1910.
JOHN TUNIS has performed a major surgical
operation. Surgical operations abound in in-
terest, but are not always pretty to look upon. He
has taken the records of 541 members of the class
of 1911 at Harvard University as they were pre-
pared for their twenty-fifth reunion, and he has
exposed with a scalpal delicate and terrible the
lights and livers of a group favored above all
others in the American commonwealth. Harvard
is the oldest university on the continent north of
Mexico and-on the whole-the snootiest.
Our author has taken these 541 men, now
in their late forties, and has analyzed their in-.
comes, occupations, hobbies, war records, mar-
riages, divorces, parenthood, religion, culture,
philosophies, achievements, and devotion to the
public welfare. The material comes partly from
the accredited biographies submitted to the sec-
retary of the class, partly from special unpub-
lished studies, partly from personal observation.
Mr. Tunis is himself a member of Harvard 1911.
To round out the picture he has then presented
comparative material, so far as it is available,
for Harvard 1811, a hundred years earlier, and
for Yale 1911, Princeton 1911, and Nebraska
1911. He has made due allowance for the lim-
itations of his sources. He knows that some of
the wisest classmates failed to answer question-
naires and that some who answered misrepre-
sented themselves through modesty or egotism.
As a group these men emerge narrow, business-
minded, uninterested in public affairs, unable to
express themselves clearly, fanatically devoted to
golf, unmindful of the courses of history, adoles-
cent in their concern for collegiate athletics,
stubbornly reactionary, devoid of that sense of
relationship between discrete events which is the
hallmark of intelligence, and almost solidly op-
posed to political experiments, and to their fel-
low-alumnus who is attempting such expert
ments as President of the United States. The
class of 1911, with distinguished exceptions, does
not say: "Yes, this is a critical period and change
is mandatory, but your methods, Mr. President,
while courageous, are inadequate." Not at all.
It says in effect: "There is no crisis and no
need for change."
The group lacks success not because, twenty-
five years after graduation, its average income
is under $4,000 a year, but because it has no time
sense. As one man puts it, "Underneath it all
we are still the bewildered boys who were lost in
the great world of Harvard twenty-five years
ago." I for one am not surprised or shocked
by the fact that members of Harvard 1911 are
tending filling stations, riding the rods of freight
cars, swinging a pick for the WPA. I am not
surprised that many are overwhelmed with debts
or enjoying a miserable income. What one has
a right to expect from the headwaters of Amer-
ican culture is a modicum of philosophical de-
tachment, the rudiments of the long view, and
a glimmering of what H. G. Wells calls the sense
of state. I would stake my watch that Oxford
and Cambridge 1911 as a group possess these
qualities. Harvard, Yale and Princeton in 1911
graduated all too few who possessed the long
view . . . Finishing schools for debutante stock-
Few of these men have ever appraised their
world. Few have tried to understand or come
to terms with the massive forces which hurled
them first into the trenches of France, then into
a fantastic boom, then into a bottomless depres-
sion. They were good soldiers, good providers for
their families when the stock market was jump-
ing over the moon, stoical and dependable cit-
izens in the depression. But they never seized
the privilege of the educated man to ask: Why?
What made it happen? How can these things
be prevented from happening again? Most of
them ask nothing better than a return to the
good old days. It has never occurred to them
that history is an irreversible process.
"In view of the war and the depression," says
Mr. Tunis, "our failure to gain financial success
may be understandable. That we have not
reached the top in these fields where we might
reasonably have presumed to be foremost, is dis-
appointing. Worse still, worst of all, in fact, is
our attitude at present. 'What of it?' We have
failed, certainly, but why worry? Surely a group
such as ours ought to grasp leadership in the
attempt to save our civilization from destruction.
We do not grasp, we merely shrug our shoulders,
pass along, and murmur, 'What of it?'"
Harvard 1911 did, however, produce a handful
of men profoundly concerned with the fact
that the times are out of joint. Mr. Tunis gives
this handful generous credit. Yale 1911 pro-
duced fewer and Princeton almost none at all.
"It is high time," says one stalwart of Old
Nassau, "we and the rest of the world decided
Nihil De Mortuis Nisi Bonum
To the Editor:
The article of October 22 by Malcolm W. Bin-
gay, editorial director of the Detroit Free Press,
on the life of Senator Couzens, was vindictive,
unpleasant and dishonorable.
'Death did not sanctify James Couzens; like
all of us, he had faults, but his death is not the
occasion to rehearse them. It would have beepi
brazen hypocrisy for the Free Press to have made
the customary eulogistic remarks, in view of its
previous bitter attacks on the late senator, but
we had been fooled long enough by the crazy
scheme and experiments of the New Dealers,
dictators, et al, and settled down to the funda-j
mentals of the 'horse and buggy' type of philos-
ophy of our forefathers." One is tempted to ask
why we should not settle down to the football of
our forefathers, with goal posts on the zero yardf
line, five yards for a first down, and no forwardl
No one expects the majority of any college
class, twenty-five years after commencement, to
have developed into intellectual giants. Perhaps
the handful, with the still smaller silent minority,
are enough? They would be enough if they were
active leaders, with the majority an intelligent
audience. But the audience is bored and hostile
and even the leaders of these college classes are1
These men rather than the undergraduates of
today are really the lost generation. They were
conditioned to an era of adolescence, of com-
pounding growth, of bigger and better population
statistics, real estate values, yachts. Lost and
bewildered among the problems of a maturing
economy, they turn reactionary or cynical. They
prepared for the American success story, and
Time, the relentless editor, threw the story into
the waste basket.
By way of contrast, listen to a Harvard young-
ster of the class of '36, as reported by Mr. Tunis:
"I have been told that the chief interests of the
undergraduates of ten years ago were athletics
and the social side of college life. Today I think
one could say that the chief extracurricular in-
terest is in world events and the political and eco-
nomic situation. It permeates most conversa-
tion . . . I think I speak for my generation when
I say that we are sick to death of platitudes and
cliches, of flag waving and heroic attitudes. of
Red scares and patriotism that is talked of
rather than felt, of Father Coughlins and Wil-
liam Randolph Hearsts."
The other night I sat up until all hours trying
to answer the eager questions of a Harvard
sophomore whom I had just met-questions
about Russia, Italy, Germany, the class struggle,
the co-operative movement, the TVA, the chance
for a third party, the saving-spending formula,
the possibilities of an economy of abundance, and
heaven knows what else.
There was almost no talk like this in 1911,
though the World War was only three years
away. At least there was little or none when I
left Harvard is 1910. So Mr. Tunis's somber story
has a happy ending. Harvard appears to be
returning to its ancient and honor-able role of
educating men for a moving, changing world.
Who knows but Yale and even Princeton are
doing the same?
I THE SCREE
AT THE MAJESTIC
"THE DEVIL IS A SISSY"
It's not another "Dead End," but "The Devil
Is A Sissy" is a warm, human picture, and if
you have never been there, it will show you what
life means to the people who live in the colorful
streets you may have looked down at with curios-
ity when you drove over the Brooklyn Bridge.
It is the story of three boys, Buck, Gig and
Limey, pictured by Jackie Cooper, Mickey Rooney
and Freddy Bartholomew. Buck is the son of a
stupid bully who lives in the past "glories" of
the war; Gig's father was electrocuted for a gang
murder; Limey's father is a sensitive architect,
sympathetically portrayed by Ian Hunter.
Together they fight and steal in the crowded
streets and dirty alleys of a big city's tenement
districts, wise far beyond their years, tough as
the thugs they idolize. The plot is concerned
mainly with Limey's heroism, and the reforma-
tion of Buck and Gig, and a love'story is supplied
by Limey's father, who is separated from hi,
wealthy wife, and Gig's aunt. There are a few
scenes which are genuine tear-jerkers, and
there are many scenes to remember and think
Gig and Buck represent a million other boys,
boys who are submitted to the same influences
as they, boys who will follow the path of Gig's
father. They, too, are tough, and steal and fight
and bully. This picture should make you wonder
about that, and what's being done about it. They
won't be saved by the heroism of a movie juvenile.
There are thousands of them in penitentiaries,
and a lot more coming up. It is something to
think about. --A.S.D.

"THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1937"
"The Big Broadcast" is big entertainment

sheer unadulterated entertainment you will see
this season. If you like music of any variety, if
you like witty dialogue, if you like entertainers
who are real showmen, see this Paramount pro-
There is Jack Benny, there are Burns and Al-
len, Martha Raye, Bob Burns, Leopold Stokowski
and Benny Goodman, all doing their best by "The
Big Broadcast." And there is Miss Shirley Ross,
the surprise package of the picture. Miss Ross
not only sings as though she meant it, but has a
personality and looks that record as sincerely
as her voice. This assemblage of talent alone
would make any picture big news. But these
performers aren't just slung together in flashes,
they are worked into a neat little story. .
There are some very good numbers in this pic-
ture, which are not ruined by reel after reel of
tramping chorus girls. Watch and listen to
Shirley Ross sing "There's Love in Your Eyes"
and "I'm Talking Through My Heart." And wait
