Not In The Lost Lives
Was The Supreme Tragedy
on O SMALL AUDIENCES are at-
tending the current performances
of Bury The Dead. This is a play which we
earnestly urge every one to see; whether or not
it is good drama, it is a powerful presentation
of an idea and that idea ought to be powerfully
presented to you, over and over again. If you
haven't seen the play, do attend its last per-
formance, tonight. This may be publicity, but
we couldn't give publicity to a better cause than
this.
Bury the Dead, like All Quiet On The Western
Front, makes vivid the personal tragedies of war,
but much better than the latter play, it exposes
the mockery, the stupidity, the hypocrisy of the
forces which induce us as a people to agree to
be killed. It does this skilfully, and to the extent
that it makes this mockery apparent to us, and,
if we are optimistic, immunizes us against similar
appeals in the future, it is necessary.
The play fails in its purpose, unless it shocks
us into action. It does not suffice that we hate
war; we must, with as much of cool reason as the
play has of emotion, determine what the forces
making for war are, and what shall be our
method of meeting these forces.
One such specific action suggests itself this
week. On Thursday, we reprinted on this page
an article entitled, "A Republican Party Plan,"
by Samuel Harden Church, president of Carnegie
Institute. In that article occurred the following
sentences:
"The money for this new policy of wages and
hours will be paid by the consumers in higher
prices for the product, and a Republican tariff
that aims to protect American high wages against
the world will do the rest. We shall then buy
everything at home that is made or grown at
home-always a Republican doctrine that brings
prosperity to our country."
This doctrine of economic nationalism fostered

by a high tariff wall and a "Buy American" pol-
icy we regard as one of the greatest obstacles
to peace. For a sound statement of the case
against this idea, we suggest the article by
Francis Bowes Sayre, assistant secretary of state,
in the magazine section of last Sunday's New
York Times. The article is entitled War or
World -Trade-Which?
"The drive toward. economic nationalism, if
continued unchecked, leads surely and inevitably
to war," warns Mr. Sayre. The national special-
ization which followed the industrial revolution
made the countries of the world mutually inter-
dependent for markets and for sources of raw
materials.
"Security of foreign markets may be sought
either (1) through military conquest or (2)

found herself blocked by Western nations.
"Political rivalries were added to commercial
rivalries. The German effort to secure necessary
foreign markets and raw materials gave con-
stant impetus to the political drive eastward-
the Drang nach Osten. Out of this grew the im-
perialism of Germany and Austria. On the other
hand, England, France and Russia formed an
equally determined group, bent on securing need-
ed raw materials and foreign markets for them-
selves.
"Thus were developed two conflicting fronts of
imperialism, each heavily arming. There could
be only one outcome. Granted the philosophy
of unrestrained national independence and the
possession of huge armaments with which to
force a solution, world was was as inevitable as
the rising sun.''
"That was true in 1914. Is it less true today?
The unprecedented catastrophe of 1914-1918
caused ruin from which we have not by any
means emerged. The grim toll of human life
was some nine million killed and six million
maimed in the very prime of their manhood. But
the supreme tragedy was not in the lost lives.
It was rather in the folly and futility of the
sacrifice. If ever history taught a lesson in
letters of blood and fire, it was the utter futility
of seeking a solution of the problem of raw
materials and markets through force of arms.
"Conquest cannot furnish a solution of the
problem of foreign markets. Under twentieth-
century conditions there can be no economic vic-
tor in a great war. Each side alike suffers the
wiping out on a colossal scale of its most pro-
ductive man-power, of its savings and its cap-
ital, of its normal trade. The future of each i,
crippled and hampered by debt. The more com-
plete the destruction of enemy territory, the more
complete is the destruction of future markets and
purchasing power. Even were additional foreign
markets won, the cost of the struggle lowers the
victor's standard of living far below any possible
gain through enlarged markets."
Now to direct Mr. Sayres against Mr. Church:
"During the past fifteen years economic na-
tionalism has been running rampant. Tariffs
have been raised to unprecedented heights. Since
the crash of 1929 entirely new and far more dras-
tic implements for achieving economic national-
ism have been created, such as quota restrictions,
exchange control, export and import licensing,
government trade monopolies, and the like . . .
"Post-war efforts toward economic recovery,
based upon policies of increasing economic na-
tionalism, never can bring recovery, for they ig-
nore the facts of modern industrial existence and
rest upon an outlived philosophy. By shutting
nations off from foreign markets upon which
their economic existence depends, these policies
effectively block the only real solution possible.
Their inevitable tendency is to drive desperate
rulers toward the suicidal course of imperialism
and conquest-the way of 1914..."
"The lesson )s clear. All thinking people
who care, for human progress must see that
largely as a result of the Industrial Revolution
stable and lasting peace can be built only upon
a world trade unhampered by excessive barriers
and restrictions .-.
"That is why the question of American foreign
trade policy transcends party lines. It is a ques-
tion of war or peace-and upon such a questid
there is no room for partisan differences or for
petty politics. The very foundation of American
foreign policy is the profound desire for peace.
A policy which militates against peace cannot be
American."

mB -B Bot Wllams~---
A GREAT MANY YEARLINGS have hit the
Campus and proceeded to show people just
how things should be clone, but among the irre-
pressible class of '40 is one verdant freshman,
Paul Strickland by name, who has succeeded in
completely outdoing anything that his renowned
predecessors have ever conceived of.
Paul is the apple of the eye of Betty Jane
Crawford, Detroit sub-deb, so claimed. Every
Friday night and oft of a Saturday too, Miss
Crawford issues forth from her metropolitan
home, gives a peremptory order to her chauffeur
and is whisked out to Ann Arbor where-her enor-
mous limousine is seen to pull up in front of one
of this town's characteristically shabby rooming
houses.
After some brief delay, Paul strolls forth from
his quarters, steps in beside the happy girl and
they roll off to the Union for an exciting evening.
During the course of the dance, the liveried
chauffeur sits rigidly without, awaiting the nod
that will signify the return of his mistress and
her escort.
The dance over, Paul speaks in a brusque
voice, and the big Packard rolls off to a ham-
burger stand where the two feast. Betty Jane
then takes Paul safely back to his rooms, and,
having thus instilled an unspeakable envy into
the hearts of his Phi Psi brothers to be, Paul
once again addresses the driver with 'Home
James,' and Betty Jane is borne speedily back to
the automobile metropois, dreaming perhaps of
another great adventure the following week. Oh
Destiny!
THANKSGIVING was a big day for a lot of
the Campus, particularly that portion of it
that visited Detroit. One of the most amazing
sights of an amazing evening was the picture
of a large muscular gentleman rising suddenly
from his seat in the Book and unbuttoning his
shirt, thus revealing a great expanse of hairy
chest. Finally the people got him quieted down,
and the poor waitress whom he had frightened
out of a week's tips, came over to our table.
"You know she said, I'm never again going to
ask anybody whether they're 21."
OTHER Thanksgiving partiers seen or heard
of were Gini Jackson, Alpha Phi, Jean Lait-
ner, ex-Theta, Dick Deveraux, ex-Beta and party
lapping up side cars in the Wonder Bar, Bob
Henoch and Ev McAffee showing Grand Rapids a
good time, Vince Butterly, Jack Lane, Martha
Kerr, Barbara Teal, Jean Rheinfrank doing the
Oarsman Ball at the Boat Club, Bill Nimmnicht,
Earl Whetzel, and Elmer the postman at the
Lions' Game, and about half the University
watching the Hawks knock off the Red Wings
at Olympia.
TONIGHT the open season commences for the
most loyal bunch of supporters that any
Michigan team can boast of. Tonight for the
first time since last March, the ramshackle old
Coliseum will re-echo to the partisan cheers
of the rabid hockey fans who will be packed
into the freezing plant like the patrons at
Deal's.
The front row, on the basis of sustained loyalty,
will be reserved for the Alpha Delts who over a
period of years have never had a delegation of
less than ten men representing their house at
any game in which Michigan has played. They
claim the all time one-game high of 25 Alpha
Delts at one game, but this title is disputed by
several leading Tongs. At any rate with a great
season in prospect, and with more people pos-
sessing 35 cents per than in several years, it is
quite probable that the late comers will be hang-
ing from the riafters when the boys tangle at the
opening face-off.

Whither Football Industry ?
(Fron The Detroit News)
STHERE ARE THOSE who believe football, as
an industry, is on the way out. If this is so,
we think it can be said now thatthe break will
grow out of the position in which schools like
Chicago find themselves in their sports relations
with comparable institutions. The Daily Ma-
roon, speaking for the student body, urges the
withdrawal of Chicago from Big Ten football un-
less it devises means of enforcing its rules against
subsidies for athletes.
It is a challenge the football industry must
meet, and quickly. Wisconsin's Reynolds Plan,
which would openly provide aid to likely athletes,
at least escapes the hypocrisy with which many
schools are handling the question. Yet even this
is no solution to the larger quandary: Are our
universities s'eats of learning or auspices for com-
mercial sports enterprises?
In Chicago's case-as in Michigan's in late
years and in Harvard's-high scholastic stand-
ards are an added handicap in rivalries with
those schools that not only tolerate the unin-
telligent athlete but solicit his enrollment. One
of the year's leading backs-a Big Ten star--
showed up at Ann Arbor with half the require-
ments for admission. He had no difficulty en-
rolling at another school. It would seem the time
is near when attitudes so far apart will estrange
traditional rivals in sport. At Chicago they be-
lieve it is the reasonable course.

THE dramatization of Pride and

novel but even if one is unfamiliar
with the original, the theatre version
is continuously amusing, moving,
and charming. A very large portion
of the novel has been kept and iti
does not seem telescoped or sketchy.-

Union Showers
To the Editor:
It is commonplace for man to span the seas
on metal wings, and to speed along roads over a
hundred miles an hour. Calculating machines,
and type-setting machines that belittle the
brains of their operators work without a hitch,
but the Michigan Union showers have no faucets
that work!
Those who know the temperaments of ,men
who have been alternately par-boiled and chilled
will tell you that it is particularly bitter, even
sour sometimes. The howls and yells of men who
must subject themselves to those showers for a
bath is pitiful and soul-rending to hear. Why
pray for missionaries in the cannibal's soup?
Why send armies to China, or battleships to
Spain to protect American citizens? Why not
rescue the men in the Michigan showers?
Let a committee be formed to make a survey
of the durable faucets, let them select one fool
proof type which will dependably adjust the flow
of water, and then, let them give the pool users
a chance to help finance the replacement of
those "water motors" they have there now. I'm
sure the men who regularly swim there would
gladly help. -Christopher Galladay Falloff.
Likes Forum
To the Editor:
I wish to publicly express my gratitude for
the Forum. The existence of such a column
where even the least of us may express his views
indicates that liberalism is still alive in the uni-
versity. The forces that are constantly at work
to undermine democracy must be actively op-
posed by those who value freedom of thought.
And this opposition will gain its best and wisest
leadership from the American universities.
Of especial interest is the letter from Will
Canter, janitor at East Hall, which appeared
on Nov. 21. Mr. Canter is to be praised both
for his courage and his ability of expression. He
works with his head as well as his hands.
