Vivid Account
To the Editor:
Unfortunately, the Daijy's report of the alter-
cation between Father Kruger and Donna Isa-
bella de Palencia confined its efforts too closely
'to a cold skeleton of hard facts. A more vivid
account of what actually transpired at the meet-
ing might cast some light on a much larger issue
than the speeches that were made. Donna Isa-
bella had not spoken more than a few moments
before she won completely the hearts and the
sympathies of her audience. It was immediately
evident why she is considered one of the great
literary lights of contemporary Spain and why
she was recently appointed ambassador to Swe-
den. The audience felt instinctively that she is
one of those rare personalities wherein the two
attributes of intelligence and sweetness of char-
acter combine to make a thorough gentlewoman.
It was impossible to doubt for a moment her
honcsty or her intense sincerity. Her words
were impregnated with the consciousness of their
own strength, strong because they were rein-
forced by omnipotent truth.
She concluded her speech, and wen the chair-
man suggested that she would gladly answer any
questions the audience had in mind, it imme-
diately became obvious that. the benevolent
Father Kruger was "laying for" her. He bounced
abruptly to his feet, got control of the floor be-
fore anyone else had a chance to speak, and
proceeded to make himself as obnoxious as pos-
sible. He was not interested in asking questions;
he was interesting in precipitating a quarrel.
He undertook to prove that Father. Sarasola, the
absent member of the delegation, was, contrary
to Donna Isabella's statement, an apostate, on
the grounds that he had left his monastery with-
out permission, and in the company of a woman.
What the canonical technicalities of the matter
may be, I do not know, but it was quite evident
that the audience did not care two damuns whe-
ther Father Sarasola was an apostate or whether
he was an ape. The chairman had made it
perfectly clear that Father Sarasola was appear-
ing iii America as a Spanish citizen, that he
made no pretenses to be here as a representative
of the Catholic Church. (Of course not! We are
told that the Catholic Church in Montreal used
every means in its power to prevent the Spanish
delegation from speaking in that city.) Neither
did the audience care whether he had departed
in the company of a woman or a whole harem.
They were interested in what kind of a man he
was and what he had to say about Spain. The
veiled suggestion in Father Kruger's statement
that he had left "with a woman" did not add
any sedative to cool the rising temper of the
audience.
But when the good Father Kruger became in-
volved in the devious labyrinth of an ecclesias-
tical debate about the fine distinction between
"excommunicativus whangus" and "excommu-
nicativus o tempera o mores," and tossed in a few
"ipso factos" for embellishment, the audience
quite properly laughed him to scorn.
At this point, several people protested aloud,
the chairman restored order, and Donna Isa-
bella proceeded to answer his accusations. And
she did a very neat job of it. She probably
felt it was a pity that Father Sarasola was not
present to refute the gentleman's arguments in
his own terms, but she went ahead to do what
she could. She must have felt that hers was
the obligation of a lady of some breeding, who,
confronted with boorish tactics, was not herself
going to stoop to the same means. Calmly, and
with a few well-chosen facts, she proceeded to
make a complete fool of him. It must be ad-
mitted that she does not deserve the entire credit
for this accomplishment, for he contributed no,
mean part himself to the process. I like to
think that all the things he had said were noVi

the result of heredity, but the result of environ-
mental conditioning, for I have great faith in hu-
man nature, and I hate to thi-nk it possible for
any man to be born with such a perfect-genius
for buffoonery.
When Donna Isabella stated that several of
the churches in Spain had been converted into
arsenals, (a fact which our own press has grudg-
ingly corroborated) the holy man shouted,
"That's a lie!," and the only thing that saved
her from an embarrassing situation was the re-
action of the audience, most of which leaped
to its feet in protest, feeling, no doubt, that just
because a priest is the self-styled "representative
of God on earth," that does not release him from
the obligation of being . gentleman. For a mo-
ment the situation looked tense, but as one of
our leading professors put it, "There was no
danger that the audience would break out into
a riot; the only danger was that they would
take him out and wash out hismouth." Happil *
not one of the audience laid a hand on him.
If they had, he probably would have had the
masochistic satisfaction of feeling like a martyr.
As it is, he probably feels he was the victim not
of his own stupidity, but of religious bigotry
and intolerance. Nothing could be farther from
the truth. The audience was perfectly willing
to let him speak his piece. There was not a
w isper of protest about that. But they were
not going to allow him to monopolize the dis-
cussion, nor would they tolerate the lack of civ-
1lity in his conduct.
Well, several good things resulted from the
incident. The best of it is that the audience was
more completely convinced than ever of the jus-
tice of the Spanish loyalist cause. Hardly less
fortunate is it that Father Kruger, who prob-

THE CLAN SPHINX encountered some diffi-
culty Tuesday night when they descended
upon the home of Prot. Art Van Duren. newly-
elected faculty member.
It was almost 1:a0 when Pharaoh Joe Mattes
led his band down to the vicinity of the Field
House and the an Duren residence. Silently
the Sphinxes nr de their way up the walk and
onto the porch, and then, with one accord let go
with a burst of shouts that rocked the neigh-
borhood while the whole house trembled as the
clan pounded on the doors and windows.
Neighbors were cursing vainly from their bed-
room windows when a disheveled figure in a
blue bathrobe sleepily rubbing his eyes was seen
stumbling down the stairs. The bolt clicked in
the door and before the Herr Van Duren knew
what it was all about the boys had poured into
the house and were pounding him on the back.
Professor Art sleepily put up his hands to de-
fend himself as the scroll of membership was
thrust into his palm and the pummeling con-
tinued. Suddenly there was a break in the pro-
ceedings as a small but courageously determined
Mrs. Van Duren swung into action. With one
hand she shoved the clansmen all over the room
and with the other grasped the telephone into
which she shouted desperately, "Quick, give me
the police department."
DEAR BONTH:
Having read your obit on the Cham-
pion, I'm at present in a position to sympa-
thize with you. For Phoebe, too, is dead.
Phoebe, her sleek black dress shaking vi-
vaciously, used to tag after the Champion
on his excursions, or sometimes run along
ahead of him. She loved to run about at
night, never caring much for scenery. She
was just out for a fast time. I'd only known
her about four months, but in that short
time I learned to love her and depend on her.
Remember how she played tag with the
Champion all the way to Philadelphia, and
when the Champion couldn't go to Minnea-
polis, she went there herself to console you?
She loved to lean over on the curves, and
dart around the countryside, never so happy
as when she had a lot inside her.
She was a fast little number, and prob-
ably wouldn't have lived very log at the
hectic pace she set, but she lived life to the
full while she was at it, and showed me a
wonderful time.
Somehow, though, she saddened after the
Champion's death. Always cheerful before,
she became a habitual knocker, and felt an
urge to get oiled almost every week. She
got a bad attack of consumption lately,
too, with severe gas attacks.
Maybe it was her weakened condition, and
maybe the loss of the Champion, her run-
ning mate, but anyway, on the way into
Detroit Thursday morning, she ended it all
by gouging her abdomen with ,the sharp
point of a broken cylinder rod. I was with
her at the time, and her death rattle was
horrible.
Anyway, Phoebe the Phord has followed
champion to the happy huhting grounds. So
let's get together, Bnth, and buy a tandem.
Pat.

THE POLITICAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT is
getting pretty fed up with answering the
phone and hearing some sincere student voice
ask, "Will Professor Pollock hold his classes to-
day, or is he in Lansing again?" . . . Charlie
Zwick, the bane of whose existence is pain en-
gendered by cold feet, took the advice of Ann
Keeler and wore sweat socks to class. The after-
noon sun and the heat from a 2 p.m. radiator
made the young Mozart most uncomfortable.
With a stroke of magnificent boldness, and to
the great horror of two maidens who blushingly
watched the operation, Charlie removed his
shoes and socks. exercised his little pink toes,
and then put the shoes back on to proceed sock-
less for the remainder of the lecture and the
afternoon . . . A bat got loose in the main read-

ing room of the Library about 9 p.m. Thursday
night and for half ar fnour the whole assembly
was demoralized as the creature raced from one
end of the room to the other, zooming low and
causing girls to scream out and brave men to
make futile passes at the air. In an effort to
entice the bat outside, all the windows were
opened wide, but the only thing that strategic
move accomplished was to freeze everyone in the
place.
The air raid was finally terminated when a
couple of huskies cornered the exhausted invader
and dispatched him with alacrity.
is not to hurt him personally or malign his char-
acter. What I am interested in is a situation
that brings a phenomenon like Father Kyuger
about. What I am interested in is this: Is his
attitude to be considered representative of the
policy of the Roman Catholic Church? I think
we may safely assume that we can best interpret
the policy of any institution by the actions of 'its
officials. Father Kruger is a priest and as such
it is not presumptuous to consider him represen-
tative of his Church. Obviously he opposes the
loyalist cause in Spain, along with the Catholic
press of America. That is in accord with the re-
port that most of the Spanish church is openly
siding' with the fascists. Why is the Catholic
Church with Franco? Could it be that if the loy-
alist cause succeeds, the Church stands to lose
tremendous properties, and with it a strangle
hold on the economic life of Spain? The Church
is said to own something like one-third of all the
landed property of the nation. This fact throws
more light on the problem of Father Sarasola's

The American

Press

Society. . .

N NEW YORK a group of news-
papermen have begun what is to
be a national organization of editorial employees
removed from the American Newspaper Guild
and the labor movement. The organization is to
be called The American Press Society.
The news is important to us as one aspect
of the labor problem, and particularly because
of the importance of the attitude of our news
sources toward this aspect of our national life.
The American Newspaper Guild has had a
prenomenal growth despite three very great
obstacles. First,,the feeling among newspaper-
men that they belong to the professional cate-
gory, and are not members of the labor class.
Second, the widespread feeling that newspaper-
men, called upon to report the activities of labor
unions, must be a peculiarly suspended position
in order to report objectively. Thirdly, resist-
ance in the newspaper industry from employers
has been bitter, and condition are such that
coercion against unionization is particularly easy
to apply.
The wage scale among newspaper editorial
workers is insufferably low; tenure is generally
insecure; hopes of advancement are by and large
dim. This is reflected in the ethical irresponsi-
bility of a large share of our journalists.
Although many journalists have been content
to get half as much as composing room workers
and take the rest out in psychic income, a sig-
nificant number have been casting about for
some method of collective bargaining without
the idea of pressure and affiliation with the
American Fede.'ation of Labor which the Amer-
ican Newspaper Guild necessarily involves.
This formation of the American Press Society
is one manifestation of this desire. Another
was to be seen in the general tone of the con-
vention of Sigma Delta Chi, national profes-
sional journalism fraternity, in Dallis recently.
This organization, founded as a college honorary
society, is visibly changing its original nature
to become something of a mediator between edi-
torial employee and newspaper owner. There
was in Dallas almost unanimous agreement
upon the necescsity of some form of economic
organization, and a smaller degree of unanimity
upon the need for economic organization out-
side of the labor movement.
In this case, as in the case of the American
Press Association, the aims are certain but the

entirely different was the
"unbuttoned" humor of

Can't Hear Carillon
To the Editor:
So they call that a carillon and
you dopes print praises about it.
No doubt it is the third largest in
the world but if it is certainly we
ought to be able to hear it a block
away. When Dr. Moore gave a little
impromptu concert on the carillon
some weeks ago the bells boomed
out in all their glory and you could
hear it all over the campus. But
Mr. Pratt surely has fallen below all1
that was said about him. I come;
from a little town up north andj
a church there has a set of chimes,
that can be heard all over the town
of 9,000 with perfect ease. I say let
Dr. Moore play the carillon and let's
enjoy the wonderful gift of Mr. Baird.
-J. B. Campbell.

To the Editor: *.
The University now is the owner'
of the third largest carillon in the
world, yet when they are rung they
can't be heard a block away with-;
out straining your ears. Not only1
this but when you are within 300 feet
of the tower all you hear is a jumble
of discords. Personally we think the.

phocy, 'or the good Mr. Pratt doesn't
know all he intends to know. The!

done so that the people of Ann Arbor1
and the students of Michigan can
