A Challenge To Sophomores
To the Editor:
The Class of '39, having twice played the role
of a "weak sister" by appealing to men's gov-
erning bodies in order to enforce upon the fresh-
men class rules and regulations which tradition-
ally should be executed by the sophomore class
alone, has placed itself in anything but an hon-
orable position. The frantic plea for aid to the
interfraternity council was nothing less than
underhanded, and resulted in a portion of the
freshman class being required to wear "pots,"
under pressure from their own fraternities, a
form of coercion flagrantly violating the true
spirit of interclass relations.
The latest bit of sophomore legislative tech-
nique borders between cowardice and stupidity.
Precedence has indelibly established the criterion
that any team which fails to present itself at a
scheduled tournament, without the assent of its
opponents, automatically forfeits the contest
.Having already expressed its intention, by crawl-
ing to' the Men's Council, to be elsewhere than
at Ferry Field on December 5th, the class of '39
spontaneously concedes victory to the freshmen
and may as well reconcile itself to the immediate
disappearance of "pots" from the heads of its
rivals. The excuses advanced by the sophomores
for the postponement of the games are, in ef-
fect, as follows: (1.) We must have afternoon tea
with our ladies. (2.) We fear the heavens may
anoint us with a bit of flaky moisture (of course
it never rains in April). (3.) The temperature
may chill us clear to where our backbone should
be. (4.) Those villainous freshmen will surely
mar our bandbox appearance on Black Friday
evening en route to trip the light fantastic. (5.)
Mama is sending us more arguments tomorrow.
The president of the Men's Council's contention
that it would be too cold to expose the instru-
ments of the band leads one to the conclusion
that. on the evening of the band bust, each in-
strument contained a miniature radiator, con-
nected to a portable heating plan concealed in
the baton of Drum Major Wiest.
With all due respect to the Men's Council, the
class of '40 cannot respectably honor the de-
cision to postpone the games. The challenge is
not to the council, but to the sophomore class. In
the words of Patrick Henry, "If this be treason,
then make the most of it."
-R. F. Long, '40.
Five Minutes Each
To the Editor:
I happened to read the letter in Sunday's
Daily sent in by a student of Economics 51. I
too am taking that course and feel just as he
does - and I'm quite sure that there are sev-
eral hundred more who do so. The examination
in question was unfair not only because the
questions were not readily interpreted, but
because there were too many of them. I believe
that an hour is too short a time in which to
answer six questions in economics, especially
when they are worded so vaguely that they may
be interpreted in several different ways. At
the very most we have an hour for the exam,
arnd usually less, which allows about ten minutes
for each question; and when each question has
to be read over four or five times in order for
us to determine what they might be seeking in
the answer, there remains little more than five
minutes to write the answer, exclusive of the
time necessary to think.
Economics is a science, but it is a social science,
which means it has to do with conditions that
are constantly changing. In physics or chem-
istry, one usually has specific formulas which he
uses as a basis for answers to problems. But
in economics there are no formulas, no stereo-
typed methods of answering questions -there
are only certain basic principles, which have to
be applied to the vague auestions that are given
in the Economics 51 blue-books.
In another week or so we will have another
blue-book, and, since there is no reason for
thinking differently, the questions will be just
as many and just as vague and indefinite as they
have always been in the course. However, just
in case some liberal-minded professor of eco-
nomics might hear of the opposition from the
students to the exams and be moved to act in
a sympathetic direction, I would like to offer
some suggestions for future exams:
1. Fewer questions, if they are going to require

long answers.
2. Questions easily interpreted.
3. Finally, whatever the questions may be, the
element of time should be taken into consider-
ation -including the length of time it takes to
interpret the question, to think of a good an-
swer, and to write the answer.
-Allen Lipow
Ignominious
To the Editor:
Although the old saying "All's fair in love and
war," has had its connotation extended to include
politics among most of those who are connected
with one sort of a government or another, it
seems to me that a certain amount of sportsman-
ship ought to be shown by both victor and loser
in any game political or otherwise. I refer now
to the recent elections in the sophomore class.
All three parties that participated should Pot
try to conceal the fact that they indulged in
practices that weren't strictly on the up and
up as far as the university is concerned, devi-
ating from the straight and narrow path to put
handbills where they weren't supposed to be and
to put posters where they likewise shouldn't
have been. But these are things which, if
they are to be stopped, should be stopped at

the grounds that State Street had violated the
university rulings concerning posters on the
campus grounds. He accused State Street on
the strength of a mere technicality. The sand-
wich man, whom the State Street party had
hired in strict accordance with the rulings, seems
to have put down the sign he was carrying
outside of the library while he went in for a
few moments.
State Street does not object to complying with
I the advice of the Men's Council, which was that
two Washtenaw men and one Independent be
placed on the Soph Prom committee, since it
does not interfere with positions that have al-
ready been promised. Neither has State Street
sought to find any means whereby it could
accuse Washtenaw of other violations, which
it might.
In the face of the accusations that were made
the Men's Council took action that was entirely
fair to all concerned, but the attitude of Wash-
tenaw toward its defeat, which was responsible
for the action on the part of the Men's Council,
was, in my opinion, ignominious.
That Washtenaw be blamed as a party for its
unsportsmanlike attitude is not wholly fair since
Vanderpyle, as its caucus chairman, presumed to
take full action on its behalf. If campus poli-
tics continue to survive, as they assuredly will,
the spirit of playing the game should at least
be maintained. If a party loses the fight, the
greatest thing it can do is to congratulate the
victor. Its leader should see to that

OUR BOSS, Pudgy George Andros, appeared in

Best of luck, boss.
BRETHREN in Theta Delta Chi were still try-
ing to figure it out Monday morning while
the Delta Gamma house sat back and hugged its
sides with laughter.
Acouple of the uninitiated South State Street-
ers, making their Panhellenic debuts, called up
the florist and asked him to ascertain what color
their Delta Gamma hostesses were wearing, and
then send fitting corsages.
The D.G.'s, always humorously practical, ex-
plained to the florist that the only thing pos-
sible would be orchids, and the florist, an oblig-
ing fellow by nature, sent them what they asked
for.
The bewildered fratters saw their dates be-
decked in the purple glories as they came merrily
down the stairs, Friday evening, and it was not
until the dawn of a cold Saturday morning that
they were informed by telephone, "Yes, $4.12,
each, including tax."
CRASHINGECHOES of the fairy tale concern-
ing Betty Jane Crawford and her limousine
roared and thundered down the Phi Psi corridors
after the Washtenaw elite had discovered how
pledge brother Paul Strickland was both deceiv-
ing them and being played for a sucker.
Over near the tracks on the other side of
town, the Sigma Phi's cursed quietly-all but
sophomore Doug Hayes who went about the
house with a sick, hang-dog look on his face, and
no love in his heart for his brothers
Someone had let the cat out of the bag. Betty
Jane was not constant, but it was a clear cut and
decisive Sigma Phi victory.
In the first place, the Sigma Phi's were better
business men. When Betty Jane and her en-
tourage drew up at the Sig House for a football
game or an evening of merriment, she was hus-
tled within, and instead of letting her pompous
chauffeur wait uselessly without, the practical-

minded Sigs would promptly climb in and direct
'James' to The Bell, to Dhiel's, or just off on an
errand for the ride. It got so bad, the cab
companies began to complain.
So it was that when the great revelation came,
all parties concerned were irritated. Doug, be-
cause the brothers were 'using' him while he
squired a high school girl, the brothers because
they lost their jitney, Paul because he is playing
second fiddle, and the Phi Psi's because they
never got any free transportation.
HELEN WOLFE. Yonkers New York freshman,
is planning to lead a detachment of girl
cheerleaders during the football season next fall.
According to Helen, she and a few of her co-
horts could get a lot more noise out of the crowds
that fill the Stadium than all the male cheer-
leaders that Michigan has ever had, and she's
going to prove it if the board in control says it's
o.k., which they haven't.
Helen, however, who is also a professional
dancer, can take off from a 35-foot diving plat-
form, and is a demon on ice skates, is not likely
to be easily thwarted and next season may see
a sudden and not unexplainable demand for seats,
low down in the bowl.

T HE 4-4 SPLIT in the Supreme
Court of the United States, up-
holding New York's unemployment insurance
act, gave prominence to the almost forgotten
statement of Mr. Doolev, that the court follows
the election returns.
And it is well that it did, for the question of
whether or not Mr. Dooley was right or should
be, appears in these days in a confusing light.
William Green, president of the American Fed-
eration of Labor, John Lewis, CIO head and
Lewis' arch enemy, even members of the Univer-
sity faculty have publicly held that as a result
of the Roosevelt victory the Supreme Court
should now declae constitutional measures it
otherwise would be expected to invalidate. And
there are persons (Norman Thomas, for example)
who hold that the court has always followed pop-
ular sentiment.
Even more vociferous are those who recently
have been accusing the nation's highest tribunal
of intentional bias and prejudice for certain in- .
terests in some of its momentous decisions.
We have stated before that we believe Mr.
Dooley to have been wrong. The history of Su-
preme Court decisions, with minor exceptions, in-
dicates that elections and other popular trends
have been disregarded. And we believe this to be
proper, andethat the justices rarely may be sus-
pected of being intentionally influenced by prej-
udice, economic, political or otherwise.
If we are to continue to operate under our
Federal system of government, the inherent sep-
aration of powers between the three divisions of
government-executive, legislative and judicial,
must be maintained. Especially is it important
that the judicial department be isolated. Be-
cause of the nature of their functions, certain
delegations of power from the legislature to the
executive may well be beneficial. But any dele-
gation of legislative power, assumed by or grant-
ed to the judiciary should not and cannot be
countenanced.
For the Supreme Court of the United States
to take cognizance of the election returns would
be the most flagrant violation of this principle.
For the court, in the last analysis, has as its
most important function the interpretation of
the Constitution. The Constittuion was designed
and has been preserved by the people of the
United States in a manner designed to prevent
it from being affected by ephemeral waves of
sentiment. It was designed as an instrument of
government, laying down broad, general prin-
ciples which, in the opinion of the founders,
would be applicable not for a mere term of office
but for centuries. It provides for its own amend-
ing, when the people wish.
The document today is essentially a different
one than that adopted by the Philadelphia con-
vonfinn in 1RAS ar f ! wirn a - .- - m.. anv

the prints executed in the tight, pre-
cise draughtsmanship of academic
tradition, there is not a poor or me-
diocre work in the entire group. The
whole collection is so very good that
it becomes a difficult task to select
any few as being outstanding. Any!
choice must be largely limited by
one's own personal preferences.
The outstanding characteristic of
the show is its force and vitality. A
great deal of it is propaganda or any-
thing else you want to call it, but
whatever it is, it is completely Ameri-
can. It is evident that our artists
are finally beginning to desert the1
Beaux Arts and the Left Bank to stop
and look inward, and find something
to say about their native land. They,
say it, and they say it in no equivocal
terms. Here, seen through the eyes
of her own sons, is America, its cru-
dity, its sordidness, and its raw con-
fusion, but here too is its strength
and beauty. There is a befitting lack
of emphasis on the placidness of
pastorial America, and a greater
grasp of the more tangible struggle1
for existence in industry, and what
that struggle does to people.
Any description of the individual
works of the show cannot hope to1
do them justice. One of the high
points of the exhibit is Harold Cook's
"Southern Mountaineer," one of1
those rare works in which the perfect
command of a plastic technique
meets with a sympathetic interpre-
tation to produce the thing we call
character. "Lindy Hop, by Miguel
Covarrubias, is another exceptionally,
fine thing. The sinuous rhythm of
the composition completely expresses
the sensuous aesthetic rhythm of the1
Negro dance.
Those who are familiar with hisp
cartoons in the "New Masses" will
recognize the characteristic touch of
William Gropper in "Road Workers,"
presented in bold, virile sweeps of
black and light with a minimum of
detail. Much in the same spirit is1
Fletcher Martin's "Trouble in Fris-
co." Anyone who could see this and1
fail to be moved by it might as well
never look at another picture. It is
strong, forceful, violent, and the co-
herence and unity of the composi-
tion both contribute to the bitterness
of the struggle.
There is good-natured satire in
Wanda Gag's "Progress," a comment
on the trashy appendages of the
American landscape. There is the
typical hodgepodge of roadside, bill-
boards, and hot-dog stands. The
composition may be a bit confusing,I
but so is the American landscape. In'
a dcdedly different vein is "And
Now Where?" by a man better known
for his illustrations than his gallery
exhibits, Rockwell Kent. It is done
in the typical Kentian manner, a
monumental composition expressed
in perfect masterful command of the
medium.
There are two other striking prints
of evident proletarian sympathy to
contribute to the quality of the show-
ing. One, weird beyond description,
is Louis Lozowick's "Lynching," pain-
ful, yet not at all lacking in re-
straint. The other is a vitriolic pre-
sentation of a brutally conceived sub-
ject, "The Bootblack's Nightmare,"
by Alex Stavenitz. It may be fan-
tasy, but it is too real to be as
completely imaginative as the title'
would suggest. The contrast of a
few light tones set against forebod-
ing black is enough to provoke some
deep reflection.
One is tempted to go on to great
length describing other prints of
equally high quality. Some of the
woodblocks express fine architectural
organization in sharp contrasts of
black and white. Others show how
indebted is contemporary art to
various modernist movements, par-
ticularly Cubism. But like all art, it
must be seen to be fully understood,
and mere description can hardly
substitute for the experience of see-
ing it. It is on the whole one of
the finest exhibits ever to reach Ann

Arbor. We owe a debt of gratitude
to Professor Slusser, who is respon-
sible for bringing the show to town.
