NIGHT EDITOR: ROBERT WEEKS
A Realignment
Of The Majors Parties.. ..
THE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY of
the government-President Roose-
velt-during the coming four years will deter-
mine, we believe, the direction of realignment
of our major political parties.
That this realignment is inevitable has been
pointed out by many astute observers. Dorothy
Thompson has reiterated often her belief that
both major parties are moribund, and during
the summer we commented on John T. Flynn's
prediction in the New Republic that this would
be the last campaign in which the present
Democratic party would be a significant factor.
This might seem, on the surface of it, absurd,
in view of the overwhelming popular support
of the Democrats in Tuesday's election, but we
wish to present some observations now on this
realignment, which we believe to be the most
fundamental development to be watched for
during President Roosevelt's second administra-
tion.
The past election has witnessed a more clear-
cut expression of the class struggle than ever

before has been seen in our national history.
Before this, labor itself has stood aside as a
(theoretically, at least) non-partisan pressure
group, in the belief that it could accomplish more
through its political support of the major parties
than by entering a labor party in the field.
Under Gompers, this worked with particular ef-
fectiveness, because he cleverly prevented labor
from revealing exactly how much political unity
it had. Since labor as a pressure group was
operating within the framework of these cap-
italistic parties, there were few real issues to
support a choice between the two parties, and
it is to be suspected that the support of labor
had dubious value.
This campaign, however, produced at least
one real issue. On no other issue were the two
parties so clearly divided as on the question of
the attitude of the government toward labor.
This gave labor a political unity it had not pos-
sessed, and it awakened in labor a dissatisfac-
tion with the necessity of granting, for the sake
of political expediency, the essential assump-
tions of the two major parties in order to gaift
a few comparatively trivial concessions. The
little nuclear groups of labor, such as the
Labor Non-Partisan League formed by Major
Berry in Washington this summer, supported
Roosevelt with the clear idea of forming a po-
tentially powerful third party in 1940. Together
with the farm element, this leftist-inclined labor
group has it in the makings of a strong farmer-
labor party, and it seems closer to fruition now
than at any time in its history.
Walter Lippmann holds that the concept of a
class struggle has no basis in reality; Dorothy
Thompson believes that the appeal of national-
ism is still stronger than any class appeal. It
would take considerable courage to dispute either
of th p crv h,, Nit- flipfamret rpmnin that

its essential nature during these coming four
years so that it will represent one side of a con-
servative-liberal alignment.
The question is one of method only, we be-
lieve. Ultimately, the result will be the same:
if a third party does enter the field, the two
major parties will have to realign themselves,
with the Democratic party losing half its sup-
porters-those who, though in favor of "liberal"
social legislation, are opposed to any funda-
mental modifications of the capitalistic system-
to the Republican party, which has always repre-
sented the propertied class; and losing the other
half-those who supported Roosevelt because he
represented the nearest approach to fundamental
modifications of the capitalistic system available
-to the new party.
How the specific issues before the second
Roosevelt administration will decide which of
these methods is most likely to be followed and
what some of its effects will be, we will discuss
in tomorrow's editorial.
THlE FORUMj
Letters published in this column should not be
construed as expressing theseditorial opinion of The
Daily. Anonymous contributions will be disregarded.
The names of communicants will, however, be regarded
as confidential upon request. Contributors are asked
to be brief, the editors reserving the right to condense
all letters of more than 300 words and to accept or
reject letters upon the criteria of general editorial
importance and interest to the campus.
Daily Pane gyric
To the Editor:
With the position of The Daily finally being
declared you will probably experience the same
amount of voluminosity of "Letters to the Editor"
as the other newspaper editors have when their
papers came forth and made a stand either for
or against the present Administration: letters
decrying your beliefs in true Mencenian emo-
tionalized hate; letters praising your position in
the staunchest manner of a paid politician. And
neither of these extreme types of exhortations
will mean much to you, I should think, for you
well know that there are those who have a
peculiar propensity toward publicizing their mi-
nutest feelings upon any subject, under any
offering circumstances.
But there are also those of us who believe the
newspaper business is mainly for the newspaper
people, and we always read whatever you fellows
choose to print with a measure of reserve End
a grain of the proverbial salt. I think you will
agree that we should do this, for just as you
write an opinion only after thorough investiga-
tion of the facts, so we should accept that which
you print for us only after you have personally
looked into the situation. It is a truism that the
newspapers help in the formation of an en-
lightened public opinion. But like all generaliza-
tions, truisms do not hold water in each specific
instance. However, after having followed your
line of reasoning and procedure in the political
editorials printed in The Daily during this fall,
I sincerely wish to say that here is an instance
when the truism has applied. That is why I
am writing a "letter to the editor," since I want
you to know of my appreciation for your very
apparent honesty of intention and, thoroughness
in manner when dealing with such equivocal and
conscientious matters as contemporary politics
and economics.
I am especially happy that you have at this
late, but not too late, date firmly declared your
belief. If knowledge and wisdom are to mean
anything, they must be married to some kind of
.action. And after much cogitation, you have
acted. Now you stand in broad daylight and
your declarations have put you in a position that
all may see and understand what you believe in;
by so doing the formation of an intelligent public
opinion is more efficiently consummated. After
much deliberation and thought as evidenced by
preceding editorials, you have spoken for one
cause. Now that we have something to know you
by we may better direct our line of political in-
quiry, be it in the direction of praise or crit-
icism.
Too, the lateness of your declaration is a timely
one. It demonstrates, along with the preceding
political editorials, that today's editorial is no
result of a haphazard, coerced view. Clearly

there have been no conclusions jumped at. The
whole thing represents to me, the method which
colleges set as their ideal: the creation of fur-
ther sponsoring in each individual of a deter-
mination that decision on the important daily
matters of life must come only after some good
hard thinking has been put to the questions,
unaffected by what others may tell us to be
the best, or by half-cracked emotion stirrers. It
is a very pleasant relief to know that you have
declared yourself after having come to the de-
cision in a mature, rational manner. At least
terest or that moneyed interest does not dictate
the policies, where this gang or that gang does
not tell the editors what they shall Print, where
this party orN that party does not make of the
paper the organ of their propaganda.
I do not care to comment on your stand,
but rather to commend you on the method by
which you went about in coming to your con-
clusion. Method, as we all have been told and
are beginning to realize, is the only question and
only important thing in our life since it is granted
that we want the good life, the greatest good to
the greatest number. How we are to get to the
goal is what is troubling us. And I think that
your method in arriving at today's declaration
is the only sound one which we can afford to fol-
low in the other affairs which confront us. I
hope that as other questions arise during your
editorship here at Michigan that you will con-
tinue to use this objective, rational way.
-T. K. Fisher.

# IT ALL
t By Bonth Williams e
ONCE AGAIN a Thursday rolls around when
the correspondent, intent upon following the
destinies of the Michigan gridders, climb aboard
the swaying, jerking Wolverine football special
bound for some distant corner of the land. To-
day it is Philadelphia.
After the team has wreaked mild havoc within
the dining car, the press and those coaches who
weren't lucky enough to squeeze in on the first
call, get their dinner. Presently the team goes
to bed. The press retires to the club car or some-
body's compartment.
Indications are that a sizeable delegation of
rooters will accompany the team, planning to
join forces with the great mass of Michigan
alumni who will converge in Philadelphia to see
and to celebrate what they hope will be a Wol-
verine triumph. An old grad banquet and
smoker is scheduled for the William Penn Hotel
the night before the game. Reservations have
been pouring into the committee from every state
in the East, indicating perhaps that the staid old
Quaker city may see just a mite of merriment
before the week-end is over.
k * * h
FRED DE LANO and I will be sitting in the bat-
tered press box atop old Franklin Field with
two hopes when the opening kick-off goes spin-
ning through the air. Number one: that Mich-
igan conks the Quakers; number two: that Matt
Patanelli has another of his great days. If the
East sees him in action, he'll be a swell bet for
All-American honors.
AN OLD GRAD returned to a State Street fra-
ternity house early Friday and put the ki-
bosh on the brothers' homecoming decorations.
The week before the hatchet men had hit upon
the idea of dragging forth from the innermost
recesses of the chapter room a wooden Indian
which had lain there for no one knew how long.
It was covered with dust and very venerable, but
the plan was to use it as the central theme in
representing Illinois.
All went well. They hauled it out to the front
hall and polished it up. It looked pretty darn
good when it was all fixed. The tong's hopes
rose.
Then Alumni Brother Drinkerdown arrived on
the scene. The fratters proudly explained the
theme and suddenly looked surprised as the old
grad let out a moan and stepped bact aghast.
"For lord's sake fellows, put it back, hide it,
bury it, but don't put it out on the lawn. I stole
that Indian from a cigar store in 1918 and it's
worth $200. The proprietor is still looking for
me."
YESTERDAY AFTERNOON Barbara Lovell re-
ceived a corsage of artificial violets, done up
very artistically and delivered by special uni-
formed messenger. The enclosed card was of the
folder type. One the outside: To Comfort You.
On the inside:
There's A Land
Where Those Who Loved
Shall Meet
To Love Again.

The only occurrence of the day to match it was
the large and roly-poly fellow who minced up to
say good-bye to Doctor Ruthven as the Pres-
ident's tea came to a close. "Oh Doctor'Ruth-
ven, you don't know what a thrill this is to fresh-
men," the fat boy trilled as he courtsied out.
it is time for a showdown.
In the first place, since when has Mr. Murfin
the right, appropriated or otherwise, to dictate
how an American citizen shall cast his vote! That
right has up until now been reserved for certain
dictators of Europe.
This is one country, thank God, that has never
denied the right of an individual to "think" the
way he wants to think. And as far as political
attitudes are concerned, it is better to have
thought wrong than to have voted Republican

year after year and never thought at all!
---R. James.
Boake Carter
To the Editor:
We must all admit that the Presidential cam-
paign just ended has not been very enlighten-
ing for the average citizen. However, I do think
that it was not on the low plane that radio-com-
mentator Boae Carter places it.
The comments of Mr. Carter on the eve of elec-
tion were an insult to the American people,
Democrats and Republicans aike. The Amer-
ican people have -come to a lamentable state
when it is necessary for them to be told how
to change their traditional customs and take
up the political system employed in Great Bri-
tain. It is even more sad that the gentleman
who is to right the American system can hardly
be considered a real American having just be-
come a citizen a short time ago and seemingly
continued to cling to the ideals of government
of the nation to which he formerly pledged alleg-
lance.
My criticism of Mr. Carter is not motivated by
super-patriotism, but more by a feeling that we
have in America, Americans that can better crit-
icize and suggest changes in our government, I
find it regrettable that we must turn to a son of
England to put American politics on a higher
plane. I am not attempting to preserve Amer-
ican politics as they are because there is much
room for improvement, but it does gripe me to
listen to the smooth Mr. Carter night after
night telling us what we should do.
I believe in America for Americans and I be-
lieve that America can go forward improving her
