R e - sso
In Labor .. .
HE HIGH PROMISE that Novem-
ber held for an invigorat Amer-
ican labor movement has flagged; 1936 Teems no
longer to presage 1940 for those who voted in
Roosevelt as a large step toward greater realiza-
tion of a politically effective labor party, or of a
United Front Movement. There have been major
causes for this recession of optimism.
The American Labor Party polled 300,000 votes
in New York State, effectively demonstrating its
strength, but it has been sadly negligent in co-
rherent policy since. Among conflicting stories
concerning its post-November tactics the single
one soundly established is a resolution reported
in the New York Times making ineligible for
affiliation with the Labor Party any other po-
litical organization or member of such an organ-
ization. This policy, excludes radical groups, but
more importantly it rejects the idea of a popular
front.
Added to this the rump convention at Tampa
of the A.F. of L. left reactionary elements firmly
in saddle. At the convention the Committee on
Resolutions rejected any move toward the forma-
tion of a farmer-labor party, impicitly confirming
the non-partisan policy so firmly implanted by
Gompers in A. F. of L. tradition.
It may be expected that William Green, presi-
dent and associates will continue this ham-
strung tradition which was established through
fear of being made accessory to any other than
a strictly union program. They will continue to
accept the dictum that more can be gained by af-
filiation with liberals of established parties than
by initiating a new third party.
A third consideration affecting the notion of
a Popular Front is that the American labor move-
ment has not healed its own division; in the

rejection of the C.I.O. the A. F. of L. rejected a
unity which has placed the union movement, in
Great Britain at least, in an extremely favorable
position.
Yet mitigating these conditions is the fact of
a vigorous program by the C. I. O. The C.I.O.
headed by John L. Lewis is by its nature heter-
ogeneous and composite. Tacitly at least it has
endorsecd a; program of political action and its
members have unofficially indicated that they
may nominate a president for the 1940 cam-
paign. Further the socialist party and other left
groups have indicated their willingness to co-
operate in any Front movement.
Yet if a Popular Front in the United States is
to be as vital and as functional as it is at the
present time in France it must include not only
organized craft and industrial unions in a strong
unity, but all disorganized workers, the farmers,
and middle class progressives.

Red And White
To the Editor:
Very often, when words depart from the usual
course of stereotyped thought, they are auto-
matically branded "red," especially if their ut-
terance is forceful. It seems that almost any-
thing which produces a jarring oscillation of lazy
brain cells and excites them with an unpleasant
vibration is in very great danger of being rec-
orded in the wrong parts of the brain. Thus,
things like pacifism and other common sense
notions seem to stimulate only the color sense of
a good many people.
"If "reds" support pacifism, then pacifism is
"red." This is the kind of reasoning that many
people are guilty of. If an engineer takes
the side of the loyalists in the Spanish conflict
and expresses his convictions, he is immediately
accused of partaking in activities of bloody in-
tent.
I am a friend of Angelo Flores, and, knowing
him as well as I do, I can understand his point
of view. He is truly a hard worker with a sincere
purpose and a good brain. It is true that he may
be a trifle misdirected intellectually as are most
of us other engineers, but he does not reflect
bloody newspaper propaganda as does Hearst-
I-E-L-O. Or he doesn't take his material from
history books which, in many cases, are propa-
ganda of a more subtle kind. Mr. Flores and his
hard-working family were born of that Spanish
element that history books forget to mention.
It is not to be inferred from this that Mr. Flores
is not a true American and that he is lacking in
the appreciation of the fine opportunities at his
disposal.
Mr. Flores also deplores the fact that it is
necessary "to burn and pillage beautiful old
churches, renowned for their architecture alone."
But be careful, I. E. L., or the church will turn
against you. If churches are to be renowned for
their architecture alone, then the clergy would
gladly lend a hand in helping to tear them
down.
Remember, I.E.L. and others, that "white" is a
non-color and suggests anemia. Also, if you
and many others must classify everything in
terms of "red" and "white," please be more cau-
tious in assigning categories.

An Explanation
To the Editor:
The Tuesday issue of The Daily contained a
reference to a meeting of Lutheran Young People
held Sunday evening in Zion Lutheran Church.
Furthermore it stated that the minister of this
church had asked for a report of this meeting
be submitted by one of The Daily staff before
it would be published.
This statement had in it some matters which
were misleading to a reader. It should be stated
that the meeting referred to was not a meeting
of Lutheran Young People of the city but
rather the regular Sunday evening meeting of
the Lutheran Student Club of the University
of Michigan which holds its meetings in Zion
Lutheran Parish Hall. The minister who asked
for a reading of the report of the meeting was
not the.minister of Zion Lutheran Church but
the pastor for Lutheran Students. The reasons
for asking that the report of this meeting be
read were, first, that due to the nature of the
discussion many issues were stated by students
which would have been hard to understand un-
less the whole evening's discussion was heard
and, second, it was also requested that the report
might be a clear statement of the position of
the students of the Lutheran Church. We hope
that this explanation will be understood in the
light in which it is being offered.
-Rev. Henry Yoder.
Pastor for Lutheran Students,

Pledges Not Swine
To the Editor:
Quoting Professor Angell from Sunday's Daily,;
"Black Friday is simply being swept into discard
along with many other appurtenances of the late
rah-rah years of college life." The writer cer-
tainly hopes that that worthy professor has not
been deluded into including among those afore-
mentioned appurtenances the post-pledging ac-
tivities of the brotherhoods; for in spite of ar-
ticles, letters, protests, discussions and the inter-
fraternity council, this misbegotten form of sad-
ism still flourishes behind the lettered portals.
But first, they of the honeyed tongues must
thoroughly imbue in the pledge the idea that he
is the recipient of a spectacular honor in having
his lowly self singled out from the multitude of
more worthy inhabitants of the campus, little
mention being made, of course, of the "cabbage-
on-the-line" aspect of the proposition. Still la-
boring under this misapprehension, the pledge
sacrifices school work in order to be over solici-
tous to his self-styled superiors who have put on
the usual temporary "better-than-thou, holy-
is-this-fraternity" act. The pledge, small won-
der. feels deeply his obligation to live up to these
higher standards, and later, trying to find them,
wonders just what they are. Finally to every-
body's relief, the long suffering pledge becomes a
member, believeing his fraternity to be some-
thing akin to God Almighty's right-hand angel
choir, and therewith assumes the fraternity's
negative attitudes and negative morals.
So much for generalities. To be specific, the
latest case of degenerated humor that has. come
forth, despite the secrecy supposed to surround

BENEATH ****
~##IT ALL
oa By Bonth Williams-
THE Delta Gammas are running true to type
these days-or at least to Joe College's accusa-
tion that they are the "busy-body" type. Mon-
day night about midnight, when no one was
stirring "not even a mouse" one of the girls was
awakened by the sound of loud and angry voices
beneath her window. Getting out of bed and
sticking her head out, she saw a man and woman
violently quarreling. The man was trying to get
the woman to get in his car, and she was firmly
refusing to do so. With ideas of kidnaping and
even murder running rampant through her mind,
she roused all the sisters. All 28 of them rushed
to the windows facing Hill St., and from their
point of vantage they shouted down, "You leave
that woman alone! Go away!" This only added
fuel to the flames, because the man became in-
furiated at the unexpected interference. After
yelling up to them to mind their own business, he
got in the car and slowly drove away to the ac-
companiment of jeers and hisses of the dis-
traught sisters. By craning their necks, the
self-appointed arbitrators saw the woman walk
on, but abut half a block down, she finally got
into the car. Immediately the girls rushed to
the phone, and clustered around while one of
them frantically dialed the police and stuttered
that something dire was happening and that the
?police had better rush right over. When the
police showed up, they gave the license number
of the car, and waited anxiously en masse until
finally the police sergeant called them back, and,
chuckling under his breath said to them, "Every-
thing's all right! You girls were just interferingj
in a little family quarrel. The woman was his
wife.
EMBERS of the Chi Phi eating house awoke
Monday morning to discover that their
elegantly decorated Christmas tree had myster-
iously disappeared. Bloodhounds Effler and Mc-
Hugh joined forces and with their long noses
sniffed away on the trail, which led finally to the
Phi Gam House perched on the corner of Hill
and Oxford. In a bleak and barren garage they
found what they thought to be their tree,'
stripped of all its trimmings and trinkets.
Further investigation within the lodge revealed
their ornaments, wrapped up in the same sheet
on which the tree had stood in the Chi Phi Pal-
ace. Bitter altercations followed and were term-
inated only when the Phi Gams promised to re-
turn and redecorate the tree. At five p.m. Tues-
day the Chi Phi's were still waiting.

out to be-that comes later, for some-and
meanwhile they are human. For them a little
hazing may be fun, but anybody eventually be-
comes bored of continued torment and humilia-
tion.
It may be interesting to speculate as to the re-
sults of a rebellious pledge's refusal to undergo
the ordeal of "purification" necessary to fit him
for participation on the fraternity level. Cer-
tainly the brothers would find themselves in a
veritable dither at the prospect of a pledge walk-
out, with its unfavorable publicity and-excuse
me for becoming so mercenary-the depleted
coffers.
Finally a sentence to forestall any claims of
"sour grapes" that might be forthcoming. I have
been rushed and asked to pledge by five of the

"better" fraternities on campus. -F.C.
A Novel Suggestion
To the Editor:
So another holiday season is upon us. Colored
lights and evergreen on State Street. Tempting
or would-be tempting displays in store windows.
Shopping lists, hurry and scurry and bustle.
"Peace on earth, good will toward men"-nice on
churches. What shall I get for Marjorie? What
do girls like? Why girls anyhow?
The holiday season itself is a pagan custom,
adapted by the early church to its own uses. "It
was the custom of the heathen to celebrate on
the same twenty-fifth of December the birthday
of the Sun, at which they kindled lights in token
of festivity. In these solemnities and festivities
the Christians also took part. Accordingly when
the doctors of the Church perceived that the
Christians had a leaning to this festival, they
took counsel and resolved that the true Nativity
shoud be solemnized on that day ... The heathen
origin of Christmas is plainly hinted at, if not
tacitly admitted, by Augustine when he exhorts
his Christian brethren not to celebrate that
solemn day like the heathen on account of the
sun, but on account of him who made the
sun." (Golden Bough, v, 304). Our colored elecq-
tric bulbs are all that is left of the lights kindled
by those ancient sun-worshippers. The gift-
giving, the violent merriment, and the custom
of getting drunk are probably inheritances from
the Roman Saturnalia, a harvest festival occur-
ring at the winter solstice. The Christmas tree
came from the German tribes. Long before any-
one "converted" them via the sword, they hung

THEATRE

The Wingless Victory:
A Review
Katharine Cornell presents THE
WINGLESS VICTORY by Maxwell An-
derson. Staged by Guthrie McClintic.
Settings and costumes by Jo Mielzin-
ger. At the Cass Theatre.
By JAMES DOLL
IN HIS NEWEST PLAY Maxwell An-
derson again treats social problems
just as he did in Winterset. But in
The Wingless Victory their relation
to contemporary events is by impli-
cation, the setting of the play being
puritan Salem of 1800. This does not
make his point more obscure. Its re-
lation to race prejudice and fanati-
cism of today is not less clear be-
cause the action is placed in the
past.
The plot concerns the prodigal son'
Nathaniel, returned home with a
cargo which will not only redeem
the McQueston family fortunes but
buy out the whole town if necessary.
The catch, however, is that he has
brought with him a native Malayan
wife, Oparre, and two children. But
puritan common sense wins over pur-
itan moral sense and Nathaniel's
brother the Reverend Phineas Mc-
Queston and their mother accept the
new arrivals into the household. It
is plain that tragedy will be the out-
come-even if Mr. Anderson had not
himself pointed out that he has fol-
lowed the Medea story, adapting it
to the idea of the unwelcome for-
eigner, resolving it into race preju-
dice. This relation to the Greek
tragedy does not seem of great im-
portance because the best element of
the play is the relation in the minds
of the audience with the events of
1800 and events today and the ex-
planation, too, of the background of1
prejudice in this country. The play
falls down a -bit-not in emotional
intensity-but in not continuing in
the last act the ideas which have
been developed in the first two.
It is this emotional intensity com-
bined with idea that makes the play
so compelling and powerful in the
theatre, especially when it is as well
acted as it is by Miss Cornell and her
company. Mr. Anerson continues
to use his own brand of blank verse
which he has been using since Eliz-
abeth the Queen. But here this verse
is squeezed into a semblance of real-
ism and gives an anachronistic ef-
fect. The real modern theare of
poetry when it comes will not de
velop by looking backward to the;
Elizabethans but forward with new
verse forms in new shapes molded
by recent experiments in the tech-
nique of the theatre. Mr. Anderson
does not escape some of the senti-
mental poetizing so evident in Mary;
of Scotland. There is a lot about
coining the gold of the sunset but
the earth is compared to a pumpkin
rather than referred to as "that star";
and that's perhaps something of an
improvement. There is some sen-
timentalization in idea, too. Oparre
is idealized inore than is justifiable
or believable in the more realistic
background and the especially good
realistic treatment of the other char-
acters, the sound analysis of the pur-
itan psychology not without touches
of satire and his strong invectives
against prejudice and religious hypo-
crisy
Miss Cornell conveys the oriental
aspects of the character of Oparre
by beautiful movement rather than
any other external device such as ac-I
cent. For the most part her effects
are those of subtle quality and atmo-
sphere. Her emotional scenes at the
end of each of the first two acts'
and during most of the third make
the play one of the most deeply-
moving I have ever seen.
Walter Abel who got such bad parts
in the movies is all right again now
that he's back on the stage. Nathan-
iel is as important a part as Miss
Cornell's and she could probably have
found no one to do it better.
Some of the other actors, especially
Myron McCormick, do not quite know
what to do with the blank verse. In
trying to make it sound realistic they

only succeed in making it seem self-
conscious. Effie Shannon, as the
mother, is not one of these. It is a
pleashre to hear her read the lines
in her full-blooded manner. And
they are not merely read either be-
cause meaning and restrained emo-
tion are always back of the words.
Kent Smith in the part of the Rev-
erend Phineas giveseaperformance
more convincing, even, than one
would have expected from his work
in Saint Joan. Helen Zelinskaya as
Toala, the Malay nurse, has little to
do until the last act where her sin-
cere .emotion does a great deal to
make her sceneswith Miss Cornell so
moving. The other parts, relatively
unimportant, are well done with the
exception of Ruth Mateson's Faith
Ingalls. She seems affected, insin-
cere, and out of the atmosphere of
the rest of the play.
Although some aspects'of the play
will not bear too close an analysis,
it is hard to imagine, while one is
seeing the play, more satisfactory
theatre. It represents the best of
the contemporary American stage
both in writing and in production.
It plays at the Cass the rest of
the week, matinees today and Sat-
urday. Only 2.75 and 3.30 seats are
-available, however. It opens at the
Empire Theatre in New York Wed-
nesday, Dec. 23rd. Seats are $1.10 to
$6.60 the opening night, $1.10 to $5.50
