Concepts Of Democracy
To the Editor:
At a time when the idea of democracy is
being criticized so mercilessly from all sides, it
is imperative that its adherents be on the alert
to meet all attacks, especially those which comej
disguised under the authority of respectability(
and position. Just such an attack was made
by Colonel Henry W. Miller of the College of
Engineering recently.
The idea of democracy is complex and is
capable of varied interpretation, but acceptance
of it implies belief in at least five concepts.
These are: 1. Belief in the right of all mem-
bers of society to security, work and happiness,
2. Belief in equality of economic, cultural and
social opportunity for all members of society;
3. Belief in equal interest, responsible participa-
tion and control by all members of society in
the process of government; 4. Belief in the use
and efficacy of reason and science in coping
with the problems facing society; 5. Belief in
the idea of the brotherhood of nations and per-
manent world-wide peace.
Against these concepts, Colonel Miller pro-
poses the following arguments: 1. Society has
no responsibility for the security and happiness
of its members; 2. The mass of people is con-
tinually degenerating, with the result that "the
race of man" is deteriorating; 3. To stave off
the ultimate degeneracy of the race, the unfit
should be prevented from reproducing their
kind; 4. Only the talented and gifted few should
be encouraged and consciously bred. By ex-
tension, Colonel Miller's arguments would in-
clude: 5. Government should be in the hands of
the few, not the many, either in the form of an
aristocracy of talent or personified in the con-
cept of leader; 6. Certain races are purer and-
more desirable than others; 7. War is an effec-
tive way of weeding out the unfit; 8. The present
system, i.e., capitalism, can operate at its max-
imum efficiency only when it is absolutely free
from interference.
The focal point of Colonel Miller's thesis is
the last. By vulgarizing Darwinism to mean
that a continuous process of extermination is a
natural law, he applies it to the field of human
relations and in effect calls for a return to
the halcyon days of mid-nineteenth century
capitalism in England or to the Harding-
Coolidge era in our country. He assumes that
only the fit survive, whereas it is rather a
small class which is able to perpetuate itself
because of its control over the means of pro-
duction and government. The consequence 'is
that the majority of the people share in the
benefits of science and industry only in so
far as their participation continues to increase
profits and does not menace, control. Hence
the myth of the American standard of living
and the Ford car, the demagoguery of adver-
tising and the movies, the hypocritical ideal of
equal freedom of employer and employee, on
the one hand, and the use of machine guns,
Black Legions, and troops on the other.
Colonel Miller's opinions are by no means
new. His racial theories may be found in
Gobineau, Chamberlain, Lapogue, and Ammon;
his theories of government in Nietzsche and
Carlyle; his defense of war in Novicow and Vac-
caro; his theory of relief in the platform of the
Republican Party; and his economics in dozens
of nineteenth century orthodox economists. Un-
der ordinary circumstances, his opinions would
have merely an antiquarian interest as sur-
vivals of notions long since discarded. But if
we check them against the ideology of fascism,
we shall be amazed to find similarities-whether
consciously or unconsciously held does not mat-
ter - which are serious enough to question
the advisability of permitting a man with such
views to remain an officer in the United States
Army.
The doctrines of fascism have never been
systematically stated but from the speeches,
writings and practices of fascist leaders, the
following articles of belief emerge: 1. Belief in
the infallibility of the leader; 2. Belief that the
people must be led at all times and can be
propagandized at will; 3. Belief in the superior-
ity of certain races and the use of breeding and
sterility to achieve purity; 4. Belief in the use
of ruthlessness and force as justifiable means
regardless of consequences; 5. Belief in the
necessity and nobility of war; 6. Belief that

democracy and liberalism have failed; 7. Belief
in the necessity of only one party reflecting the
will of the chosen few; 8. Belief that the state
replaces the individual; 9. Belief in mysticism
and "blood-thinking" as opposed to reason and
science, especially in social problems; 10. Belief
in the continuance of capitalism as essentially a
competitive system.
If we check Colonel Miller's ideas and their
implications as enumerated above against these
ten points, there can be no doubt that in the
ideological sphere at least he is opposed to
the idea of democracy and is sympathetic to
fascism. As a citizen in a democracy, it is his
privilege to entertain such ideas, though they
go directly opposite the trends so overwhelm-
ingly approved by the majority in the last elec-
tion, but as an officer sworn to defend democ-
racy, the advocacy of such ideas constitutes
intellectual violation of allegiance to the prin-
ciples he is supposed to defend.
In a stimulating essay exposing the ideological
pretensions of ruling classes, Leonard Woolf
says: "In every community, even the most
civilized, there are a large number of persons
whose psychology has remained mainly animal
or savage. Civilization at the best is irksome
to them; their instincts are thwarted by it;
reason makes them uneasy and they dislike in-
telligence; humanism and humanitarianism are
either ridiculous or disgusting to them; and all
the "refinements" of civilized life, including the

professors, captains of industry and eminent
bankers . . . All those who hate civilization
fight against its dissemination, and the civlized
minority, who do not hate civilization but refuse
to give up their privilege of being civilized take
the barbarians as their allies against the invad-
ers. They choose to open the gates to barbarism
rather than to the majority. They prefer to
betray civilization rather than share its fruits."
Here are the real enemies of democracy.

Something 'Rotten In Denmark'
To the Editor:
Who am I to talk? Just one of the insignificant
members of a dissatisfied group of 500 students
trying to wade through Economics 51 and 52
under the present method of examination.
Fellow students why do we stand for such
treatment? This being our university we ought
to have something to say about the situation.
What are we going to do about it? Are we going
to let the department head make "simps" out
of us by putting up with such "unreliable" exams
as those we undertook to interpret and write on
intelligently a short time ago? When the aver-
age of a large group is "47," it clearly indicates
that something is "rotten in Denmark." Surely,
the majority, of an aggregation of college men
and women should know more than half what is
expected. At least, if we don't, it certainly is a
poor reflection on our competent instructors!
Our economics department has a fine reputation,
and her faculty is splendid; nevertheless, the
"blue-book" questions must not be wholly fair, or
why were the marks so low?
When economic professors appear before
classes sympathizing with students, and con-
fessing that they do not agree with the methods
now used for testing students' knowledge of eco-
nomic principles, it reaffirms in my mind the
fact that such forms of questions as those re-
cently given are incapable and inefficient rep-
resentations of what most of us know. An pour
is a short enough time for some exams, but when
one has to spend five minutes interpreting each
question, because of the vagueness and obscurity
of the point sought, and then finally answers
with a hazy "groping in the dark" attitude, as
to the real question asked, there is little justice,
and little to judge about one's knowledge of that
subject.
Students, who do "top-notch" or even good
work in class on quizzes, in recitations, and in
discussions, and come out of an exam befuddled,
not knowing what it was all about, seem to indi-
cate that there is some need for more concise,
clear-cut questions.
This plan of having papers read by unknown
readers, who, not knowing the pupils, do not al-
ways understand their opinions nor interpret
them correctly, is successful in eliminating, prej -
udices, but it increases tlereader's task in trying
to understand the students' explanations. Such
unfamiliarity make this process trying on both
reader and writer.
Therefore, are we going to lie down and be
trampled on, or are we going to protest such
treatment, and demand fair play in return for
our valuable time and money? Let's do some-
thing: show some individual or mass action. I
want a fair chance. How do you feel?

MUSIC
Jascha Heifetz
CHORAL ANION CONCERT
JASCIIA HEIFETZ, Violinist
(Monday, Nov. 30, 8:15 p.m.)
By WILLIAM J. LICHTENWANGER
ALLEGRO (from Divertimento in D
Major)-Mozart (1756-1791). The
symphony, which for almost a cen-
tury and a half has been regarded
as the highest and most comprehen-
sive form of orchestral music, has not
always been so considered. When
Mozart began to compose, during the
third quarter of the eighteenth cen-
ury, the symphonic form had not yet
reached its full development and was
only one of a number of more-or-less
divergent structural types which were
at the disposal of the orchestral com-
poser. Chief among these were the
serenata and the divertimento, which
differed from the symphony princi-
pally in that they contained less
homogenity of style and character
between their various parts. The
divertimenta consisted of from four
to seven, or even more, separate)
movements which were simply ar-
ranged in some convenient fashion
and considered as one piece. Fre-
quently each cf these various move-
ments was written for a new and en-
tirely different instrumental com-
bination.
Mozart wrote some twenty-two
works in the divertimento form, five
of which are in the key of D major;
and of those five, three have move-
ments marked "allegro." Therefore,
as to precisely which of these three
allegro movements it is that Mr. Hei-
fetz has transcribed for violin and
piano we are not certain, since he
makes no further indication in his
program than is given above.
Sonata No. 7 in C minor, Op. 30,
No. 2-Beethoven (1770-1827). Next
to the "Kreutzer," this Sonata in C
minor is probably the best known of
Beethoven's ten sonatas for violin
and piano. It is the second of a
group of three which were composed
early in 1802 and published the fol-
lowing year, with Czar Alexander I of
Russia as the honoree of the dedica-
tion. With this trio of sonatas the
first of Beethoven's three "periods"
of composition may be said to come
to a close, since it was in the piano
sonatas of the following opus that he
began to "strike out on new paths"
leading to the revelation of the true
and individual Beethoven.
The first movement of the C minor
Sonata is an Allegro con Brio which
foreshadows the corresponding move-
ment of the Fifth Symphony by its
dramatic power as well as by its key
and tempo indication. The slow
movement is one of those lovely, spun-
out Adagios which were Beethoven's
own peculiar and inimitableecreation,
as were also the Scherzi, of which the
third movement is an excellent ex-
ample. The Sonata concludes with a
brisk Allegro in rondo form.
Sonata in G minor (for violin
alone)-J. S. Bach (1685-1750). The
form of the sonata. like that of the
symphony, was evolved slowly and
out of a variety of heterogeneous
structural types. Like the symphony,
too, the sonata ad its origin in the
fast-slow-fast pan of the early Ital-
ian overture. And, just as the sym-
phony later superceded the serenata
and divertimento as the chief form
for orchestral expression, the sonata,
in the latter seventeenth and the
eighteenth centuries, came to out-
rank the suite and partita as a means
of expression for solo instrument or
instruments.
That Sebastian Bach had any pred-
ecessors in the writing of solos for
unaccompanied stringed instruments
is rather doubtful. The Italians who
preceded him as innovators in form
were interested almost wholly in a
cantabile, one-part style of playing
in which the lack of other supporting
accompaniment would have been ir-
reparable. Bach wrote six pieces for
violin alone, three sonatas and three

suites. The present work in G minor
is the first of the three sonatas, which
display the form in its strictest and
purest development. Needless to
say. the part makes heavy demands
upon the skill of the executant.
Prelude to "The Afternoon of a
Faune"-Debussyh(1362-1918). Like
Wagner's Faust Overture, which was
originally meant to comprise the
opening movement of a "'Faust Sym-
phon " Debussy's Prelude to "The
Afternoon of a Faune" was originally
intended as the first movement of a
suite based on Shephane Mallarme's
eclogue of that title. The remaining
movements never passed beyond the
fragmentary stage, however, and on
December 22, 1894, the Prelude was
performed alone, at a concert of the
Societe Nationale in Paris.
The nature. and content of Mal-
iarme's poem are too well known to
warrant its discussion here. Debus-
sy's sympathetic tonal translation of
it has long been considered a master-
piece of impressionistic orchestral
writing, and it remains to be seen
as to how much of the original's fra-
gile atmosphere of delicate and elu-
sive imagery Mr. Heifetz has been
able to carry over into his transcrip-
tion for violin and piano.
El Puerto - Albeniz (1860-1909).
For his third transcription the artist
has drawn upon a set of descriptive
piano pieces by one of the earlier
composers of modern Spain. Isaac
Albeniz is remembered particularly
for the success with which he cap-
tured and reproduced the peculiar
harmonies and distinctive rhythms
of the popular music of his country.

T WOULD NOT SEEM LIKELY
I that an industrial plant would
conduct a training program based upon educa-
tional methods more advanced than those em-
ployed in "advanced educational institutions"
themselves. The "unlikely" was observed by the
writer a few days ago in Detroit, and a de-
scription of it may suggest valuable applications
in the curricula of this University.
The Detroit Edison Company operates a train-
ing system for foremen. One of the most im-
portant' responsibilities of foremen is that of
training new men on the job. The following il-
lustrates a method by which this company "trains
foremen to train":
The instructor brings into the meeting con-
ductors used in the overhead lines department.
He asks a foreman who is not connected with
this department to step forward, and proceeds
to "train" this man how to use and identify the
various parts of the conductors. He deliberately
makes a mess of the job, and ends with the
question: "Well, Jake, you're all fixed up now,
eh? You understand how to work this, don't
you?"
Then the instructor opens the meeting to dis-
cussion, and is immediately swamped with com-
ments and criticism from the foremen, who have
been observing various "weak spots" in the train-
ing process. One of the' foremen, for instance,
will ask: "How do you know that the man
understands? Under any circumstances, wouldn't
he say that he did, in order to impress the
foreman?"
Shortly thereafter, the instructor will say:
"Well boys, let's get all this down in writing,
where we can see it. Your suggestion should
make excellent rules for all of us to follow ini
training men." And he writes on the black-
board the dictations of the group.
At future meetings each foreman will have
an opportunity to demonstrate his method of
training, subject to the criticism and advice
of the group. And so do the foremen learn the
best methods of training.
They have not been told how to train, by a
lecturer. They have not been called upon to
reiterate the rules laid down in a manual or a
textbook. They have as a group and as indi-
viduals, created, for themselves, sound methods
of training. They have not received, they have
achieved.
The leader of this training progran believes,
as a general rule, that it is as important "how"
You learn a thing as "what" you learn. He
would like to emphasize more than at present
the "process of learning" which, undergone by
the men, will enable them to approach intel-
ligently not only the problem immediately con-
cerned, but any problem. He has what is over-
commonly described as a "fine scorn" for the
lecture system of educaticn-although recogniz-

Isham Jones, for many years a first rank per-
former on the air, has quite definitely quit the
band business. Jones has consistently had one
of the best orchestras in the field, although he .
has been greatly under-rated by the average lis-
tener. It would not be such a great surprise if
Isham should come back at some future date, for
this is not the first time that he has retired.
Woody Herman, vocalist and tenor man with
Jones has organized a band that includes many
of the former Jones men in it and this new ag-
gregation opened at the Roseland Ballroom in
New York City a little over a week ago. Saxie
Mansfield, tenor man, who is one of the greatest
musicians to play under the Jones banner, is with
Herman's outfit. Woody is reported to have said
that the goal of the band was to play good swing
and still be able to play a melody in the Jones
manner. We can only agree with Down Beat's
statement that this is a worthy ambition for any
band.
