Herndon*. . .
munist, free on bail for the second
time since his conviction in 1932 for alleged vio-
lation, through Communist activity, of Georgia's
Civil War prohibition against stirring slaves to
insurrection, is once more appealing his case to
the Supreme Court.
Many persons have become familiar with
Herndon's case during the last four years, and,,
recognizing that his conviction is a crude, dicta-
torial attempt to terrorize legal minority groups
into inactivity, have rallied to save him from 18
years on a chain gang.
Not so the Supreme Court. Passing over Hern-
don't plea that his conviction was a violation of
the Federal Constitution, the Court took refuge
in the claim that Herndon's counsel had not
raised the question of constitutionality soon
enough. Not having the legal, political, and eco-
nomic backgrounds of the Supreme Court jus-
tices, we are probably wrong in saying that a
violation of civil rights should always command
the attention of the Court. Certainly a repeti-
tion 'in the Herndon case of its role in the Tom
Mooney case will lose for the Court the respect
of most of those who think the justices shouO
have the courage to place the Bill of Rights above
race prejudice and wealth.

Communist Foreign Policy
To the Editor:
A cursory glance at your characteristically fine
editorial of October 21 (Wednesday) on foreign
affairs planks fails to reveal comment on the
Communist Party's plank on this subject:
"We declare that peace must be maintained
and defended at all costs. We declare in favor
of strengthening all measures for collective se-
curity. We favor effective financial and eco-
nomic measures to this end by the League of
Nations, against Hitler Germany, Italian fascism
and Japanese imperialism. These measures
should be supported by the United States gov-
ernment. .
"We consider the expenditure of billions for
armaments and war preparations unnecessary
and provocative, contributing to the danger of a
new world war.
"Instead of even greater armaments, we be-
lieve that the United States should develop an
American peace policy in close collaboration
with the Soviet Union, based on complete pro-
hibition of the sale or delivery of goods, or the
granting of loans to nations engaged in a foreign
war contrary to the provisions of the Kellogg
Peace Pact. The huge funds now spent forI
armaments should be turned to the support of
the suffering people.
"We demand the nationalization of the entire
munitions industry.
"We demand an end to American intervention
in the internal affairs of the Latin-American
countries and the Philippines.
"We demand the strict non-recognition of the
Japanese conquests in Manchuria and China, and
the Italian conquest of Ethiopia.
"We support the Puerto Rican demand for in-
"We support the complete independence and
self-determination of all oppressed nations."
As I see it, this is a compound of Wilsonian
internationalism, including a sponsorship of col-
lective security through the League of Nations
and the self-determination of nations; of the
principles of the Briand-Kellogg peace; of the
implications of the Hoover-Stimson doctrine, so
called; and of sound Socialist pronouncements
on munitions control and reduction in arma-
ments. It strikes me that this plank is at once
the soundest and most American of All American
foreign policy planks.
--R. Webb Noyes.
A Nation Of Back-Fences
To the Editor:
The blame for the front page story in the
Detroit News should rest not so much on The
News as on the gossiping tendencies of the
American people. Last week I talked with a
newcomer from Rumania.
"Everyone asks me here about Madame Lu-
pescu," she said. "I know nothing of Madame
Lupescu. It was only when I came to America
that I learned that her hair is red!"
I am no psychologist, but I'd like to play withj
the iea that the reason Americans love salacious

news stories is the same reason the old-fashioned,
long-forgotten (?) Ladies' Aids used to pass
gossip around the sewing circle: people with
Puritanical backgrounds take a vicarious en-
joyment in the sins of others.
When the American public gets beyond the
stage of taking down the rural telephone receiverj
every time the phone rings, perhaps the Amer-
ican press may find sales for stories on science
and philosophy and the lost religion. When sex
finally, if ever, takes its place as a normal bi-
ological function instead of a nasty perversion to
be practiced behind the barn, the Puritanical
mind may rise above the belt.

Sophomore Independents
To the Editor:
The editorial in Sunday's Daily ridiculing class
elections was fully justified, we think, but we
should like to make clear the views of the Inde-
pendent Sophomore Party in order that any
misunderstanding as to its ultimate purpose may
be set right. We are interested in the victory of
the Sophomore Independent party only as a
means to a better end.
Class elections are a farce, yet they are a part
of Dame College Tradition-on old venerable
lady who is dying. To deliberately murder her
would perhaps be shocking to those who by their
very skepticism and indifference are causing her
a painless but gradual death. Because it would
be shocking to kill the kind old lady, the Inde-
pendent Sophomore Party does as the rest do, lets

001 ~By Bonth Williams -
STUDENT JOE MATTES who inhabits lux-
urious quarters in a rooming house back of
the League was made happy this fall when his
landlady brightened up the room with an elegant
new rug. Both she and Joe were very proud.
Joe was so proud he had a few of his friends in
E to celebrate the acquisition, but during the course
of the celebration a great seared hole was inad-
vertently burnt into the cherished drape.
Under cover of early morn, Joe sneaked the
rug down the stairs and out to a weaver who
promised to put it in first class shape in a couple
of days.
The landlady, horror stricken at the sight of
the bare floor where the night before the rug had
lain, accosted Mattes with unkind words and
demanded an explanation.
Joseph is not without an imagination. He
explained with soothing, honey dripped phrases
that he had lent the rug (it was such an ex-
quisite rug) to the campus dramatic society to
use in a play they were putting on.
Having apparently appeased the good woman,
Joe took his departure smiling. Unfortunately,
however, the lady had an intense curiosity about
the fate of her rug, and longing perhaps to see
her household goods upon an actual stage, spent
the remainder of the morning phoning every
theatre in town to find out just where her carpet
was being shown. She met Mr. Mattes upon his
return that evening
FAT FREDDY GEORGE, the satellite about
whom most of the law school must neces-
sarily revolve, was hitting it up with his cronies
Saturday night when one of the funsters decided
to fill up Graf Sharpe's (Fat Fred's apartment
mate) bed with all the movable property in the
Law Club. The list included bottles, shoes, book-
ends, several damp rags, and rumor has it, a
spittoon. Oh it was a great joke on Sharpy.
Having concluded their deviltry, the cronies
went elsewhere in search of rollicking sport. Fat
Freddy met a pal from Port Huron during the
course of the revelry and invited him over to
the club to spend the night. It then being al-
most eleven o'clock, Mr. George went home to
The wind rises, the night becomes cold. Enter
the guest. He hears Mr. George snoring in his
room and assumes that it is the dormitory be-
cause only six men could make such a noise.
Thereupon the guest enters the wrong room and
climbing into bed, is heard to audibly curse
college fools and college hospitality.
Mr. Sharpe wanders calmly in some time
later, notes the peculiarly shaped stranger in
his bed, and goes peacefully to sleep on the
hearth, using a collie dog which he had enticed
away from Chuck Kennedy as a pillow.
THE SPHINX rally held in Herman's cellar
the night before the Columbia game (Score
Michigan 13, Columbia 0) was definitely not sat-
isfactory. In the first place the arrangements
were somewhat confused by Herman himself. As
a result the Beta's and the Chi Psi's arrived a
little before the clan Sphinx was scheduled to
be on the scene and drank up the greater por-
tion of the foaming brew.
In the second place some of the rallyers did
manage to get a few beers with the result that
several of the hardier rallyers adjourned to the
Arboretum where the rally was entered into with
more zest than had been possible in Herman's
limited quarters.
The upshot of the rally extension saw three of
the faithful plodding bewilderedly over the wood-'
ed slopes, even as the shepherds of old, as the
campus clock chimed 4 in the misty distance.

would, we hope, foster the more active partici-
pation of independents in extra-curricular func-
tions. As it is now, most independents feel
that the very fact they had no upperclassmen

to help them along in the various activities is an
obstacle to their success and consequently they
prefer to remain out of things rather than work
without hope of high material achievement. No
one can say that having a fraternity brother in a
high position is a detriment to his chances of ad-
We would try to put our program into effect
by forming a Social Committee which would ar-
range for dances and affairs of a purely social
nature such as teas, parties, etc.
We should like to form an investigating com-
mittee into the possibilities of cooperative room-
ing and eating houses.
We should like to establish a Dating Bureau for
the benefit of independent men and women not
living in dormitories.
But, unless we get the support of a great
number of independents, our p.,ogram will,
through lack of interest, fall through. We prob-
ably won't get the support of a majority of inde-
pendents unless we show that we are organized
and that we are strong. The only way to do this
is to win the election or pile up a large number
of votes. It is for this reason we are trying
whole-heartedly to win.
We are handicapped in many ways. Our party
did not organize itself till just a few days ago:
Consequently it has not received much publicity.
We have neither time or money to squander in
expensive rallies, or demonstrations. Certain it
is that we can not afford taxicabs to transport
voters to the polls. We have no means of obtain-
ing a list of Sophomore independents that we

be a universal lack of sleep, for youth is such a

Said Dr. Camp: "Some people complain that
they feel sleepy too much of the time, that they
cannot feel fully awake. In most of these cases
careful investigation shows that the actual con-
dition is not sleepiness but a torpor and is caused
by some poisoning of the system either from di-
