The Governor's
Message. ...
GOV. FRANK MURPHY'S message
to the legislature Thursday was
an encouraging preamble to what many believe
will be one of Michigan's most liberal and suc-
cessful administrative terms.
The governor gave no indication that he
intended to tie himself to the apron strings of
the Roosevelt administration, On the contrary
he gave indirect assurance that he would urge
his comprehensive program of labor and social
legislation to completion, irrespective of the
success or failure of similar national ventures,
when he asked the repeal of the provision
which would suspend the Michigan Social Se-
curity Act should the Federal Act be ruled un-
constitutional. This proposed program of social
legislation deals with such important matters as
collective bargaining, workers' wages and hours,
child and woman labor, and old age pensions.
The members of the University have a direct

and intimate interest in the recommendations
that Michigan's loyalty oath for teachers be
abandoned and that teachers' insecurity be re-
lieved by a tenure law. Educators should not
neglect the fine opportunity they have to urge
and secure the passage of both these proposed
laws.
Of great interest to Ann Arbor, too, was the
recommendation to enact the model civil ser-
vice bill prepared by a committee of which Prof.
James K. Pollock is the head. There seems
little doubt that this bill will be passed.
The Murphy program is not assured of enact-
ment, but, considering his past record in public
life, we are confident that the governor will
support the liberal orientation of his views with
aggressive executive leadership, and make his
administration the superior of those which have
been unable to combine wisdom and initiative,
and sometimes possessed neither.
The DeJoinge
Case...
T HE RECENT DECISION of the
United States Supreme Court re-
versing the judgment of the State Supreme
Court of Oregon on the DeJonge syndicalism
case is as reassuring as it is paradoxical. It is
reassuring because it comes at a time when the
prestige of the Court has been called into doubt
and paradoxical because the courts of Oregon,
generally considered one of the most progressive
states of the Union, had adopted a strongly
reactionary attitude on the case.
Dirk DeJonge was arrested, along with several

decision, according to such a view "however
innocuous the object of the meeting, however
lawful the subjects and tenor of the addresses,
however reasonable and timely the discussion, all
those assisting in the conduct of the meeting
would be subject to imprisonment as felons."
Under this law DeJonge was sentenced to
seven years in prison, for "advocating industrial
or political revolution by force," even though
no word of sedition or revolutionary propaganda
had been used at the meeting in question.
The law was declared by the Supreme Court
unconstitutional as applied to this one case,
incompatible with the Fourteenth Amendment.
"These rights" (freedom of speech, the press
and assembly) the Court's opinion reads, "may
be abused by using speech or press or assembly
in order to incite to violence and crime. . . . The
people through their legislatures may protect
themselves against that abuse. But . . . the
rights themselves must not be curtailed." And
further: "If the persons assembling . . . are
engaged in a conspiracy against the public order,
they may be prosecuted for their conspiracy ...
But it is a different matter when the State ...
seizes upon mere participation in peaceable
assembly and a lawful public discussion as the
basis for a criminal charge."
This view of the case is so sane, in fact so
obvious, that it seems hardly necessary to com-
mend it. But in view of the surprisingly ada-
mant conservatism of the Oregon courts in
the matter, it is genuinely encouraging to find
that the Supreme Court is still capable of stand-
ing between American citizens and the blind
persecutions of senseless reaction.
Editor's Note
The first sentence of the last paragraph of
yesterday's editorial should have read: "The
people who now determine the educational
policies of the University are not the faculty,
but housewives, a physician, a labor leader,
etc. ...

A Pastor's Indictment
To the Editor:
The following statements by Rev. John Haynes
Holmes are contained in a book: "Naziism: An
Assault on Civilization." (Harrison Smith and
Robert Haas, N.Y., 194)
1. The Nazis have destroyed self-government,
freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom
of assembly, freedom of petition, and all the
civil rights of a free people.
2. They have abolished all political parties,
and made it a crime to organize any new po-
litical group.
3. They have pursued and persecuted, witil
fierce ferocity, all Socialists, Communists, paci-
fists, free-thinkers, and other radicals antag-
onistic to the iron regime of a totalitarian
state.
4. They have liquidated the trades unions,
confiscated their property, bank deposits, print-
ing presses and headquarters, and exiled, im-
prisoned, and in some cases killed their officers
and leaders.
5. They have abrogated the social legislation
of the Reich-the insurance, pension and other
protective systems built up by the workers
through a half-century of struggle and sacrifice,
and long since become the model for our western
world.
6. They have transformed a collapsing cap-
italism into a new economic feudalism dominated
by industrial lords and served by proletarian
serfs.
7. They have inaugurated a persecution of
the Jews more terrible in its rigor than anything
known since the Middle Ages-a ".dry" pogrom
of political disfranchisement, social outlawry,
and economic ruin which dooms Israel to ex-
tinction or the ghetto.
8. They have outraged the church, both Cath-
olic and Protestant, in a deliberate attempt to

subdue the conscience of Christendom to auto-
cratic rule and pagan ideology of the Nazi state.
9. They have ended the emancipation of
women, returning one-half of the human race
in Germany to the subjection of ,an older and
darker day.
10. They have withdrawn the writ of habeas
corpus, exposed homes to invasion and persons
to arrest without warrant, and decreed ex post
facto laws for cruel and unusual punishment of
crime.
11. They have re-established duelling, re-
stored the medieval rite of execution by the
headsman's axe, and honored assassination.
12. They have made war on science, art, lit-
erature, and culture.
13. They have burned books, torn down mon-
uments and buildings, and defamed and defiled
the names of immortal Germans.
14. They have turned universities into train-
ing-schools, colleges into military academies, and
a world-famous public school system into a re-
gime of Nazi discipline.
15. They have prostituted opera houses, sym-
phony orchestras, art galleries; learned societies,
laboratories libraries, museums, and research
institutes to the base uses of party propaganda.
16. They have dismissed, degraded, insulted,
herded in concentration camps, and driven into
exile the intellectual and spiritual leaders of
the nation.
17. They have driven writers, artists, actors,
musicians into a so-called Chamber of Culture,
controlled and censored by officials of the Nazi
government.
18. They have infected an entire people with
the virus of Aryanism, and with all its attendant

WEEK IN REVIEW
NATION AL
Which Union, If Any?
As heavy industry hailed a new year and a new
prosperity in America, more than 80,000 auto-
mobile industry workers were on strike, many of
them encamped in factories, demonstrating for
the first time in this country the power of the
"sit-down" strike.
Center of the strike was the General Motors
Fisher Bodies plants in Flint, where, early in the
week, about 500 sit-downers refused to leave the
factories despite an injunction ordering them
out.
The main issue of the strike is whether or not
General Motors shall recognize "any union"
as the sole bargaining agency for its workers, to
the exclusion of all others. President Alfred P.
Sloan, Jr., of General Motors has thus far been
firm in insisting that all bargaining must be
done with individual plant managers by rep-
resentatives of all workers, while Homer Mar-
tin, president of the United Automobile Workers
of America, equally firmly stands for his union's
demands for central collective bargaining.
Attempting to break the deadlock, Department
of Labor conciliator James F. Dewey and Mich-
igan's Governor Frank Murphy have conferred
with both camps, but the situation has in no way
been relieved. Tenseness and fear of widespread
violence grows in Flint, and President Sloan, pre-
dicted that next week will see 135,000 men in the
automobile industry idle.
President's Message
On Wednesday, President Roosevelt delivered
his annual message to Congress, addressing him-
self more sharply to the Supreme Court than
at any time since his famous "horse and buggy"
statement to the press after the invalidation of
the NRA.
Not once referring to the Supreme Court as
such, he asked that judiciary get into step with
legislative and executive branches of the gov-
ernment, adopting a more liberal view of the
Constitution.
The President hinted that he wanted no
change in the Constitution, but a more liberal
interpretation, and suggested no way in which
he might force the Court to fall into step with
his administration, should they disregard his
demands.
Other recommendations in the message were
for immediate Congressional consideration of the
Spanish embargo, passage of a deficiency bill to
cover relief for the current fiscal year, conversion
of tenant farmers into land-owners, broadening
of the services of the social security system, curb-
ing of speculation, reorganization and a solv-
ing of the problems which the NRA attacked.
Goodbye, Mr. Frank
Dr. Glenn Frank, president of the University of
Wisconsin, was ousted Friday from his position,
which he has held for the past 11 years, by an
8 to 7 vote of the Board of Regents. Calling the
action a "fitting climax to the deception, intrigue
and dishonesty" of which he felt he had been
the victim, Dr. Frank accused the family of Gov-
ernor Phillip La Follette of using their political
influence to oust him.
The Board's reasons for firing Dr. Frank had
previously been expressed in a 47-page report
which stated that he had been an incompetent
financial administrator, that he had permitted
egregious inequalities to exist in faculty salaries,
that he had violated an agreement to drop
newspaper syndicate work and lecturing for a fee,
and that he had made an extra $18,000 a year
out of these activities while failing to pay proper
attention to his university work. .
FOREIGN
Stroking The Lion's Fur,.
As the Spanish forces continued in a dead-
lock at Madrid, the government of Great Britain
and Italy Monday announced a Mediterranean
accord which disclaimed for both parties "any
desire to modify, or, as far as they are con-
cerned, to see modified, the status quo as regards
national sovereignty of territory in the Mediter-

ranean area," and which "is designed to further
the ends of peace and is not directed against any
other power."
Following this declaration, an exchange of
notes between the Italian and British envoys an-
nounced that the two nations would respect and
protect the sovereignty of Spain. Throughout
negotiations leading to the agr'eement, France
has keep well informed, and French Foreign
Minister Yvon Delbos Delbos has announced that
his government finds it most agreeable, since
both powers concluding it are friends of France.
And Pulling Its Tail
In contrast to this move for peace was the
announcement yesterday that Great Britain will
concentrate 105 warships in the near Spanish
waters. This move was made by the admiralty
after the cabinet heard reports of German mili-
tary activity in Spanish Morocco.
Despite denials by German officials, both Brit-
ain and France were worried by reports that Ger-
man engineers were supervising construction of
fortifications in the Moroccan territory con-.
trolled by Gen. Francisco Franco, whose govern-
ment has been recognized by Germany.
The attitude of Germany, meanwhile, seemed
to indicate that it does not desire to be drawn
too closely into the affairs of Spain, and on Fri-
day the foreign office announced that Germany
will take part in a non-intervention pact if all
the other European powers join it.
At Madrid, the center of all Europe's troubles,
the insurgent forces gained ground in the north-
west, continuing a heavy bombardment.

THIEATR e
Two French Movies
By JAMES DOLL
LAST SEASON we were given a
chance to compare an American
screen version of a great novel with
a foreign version to the discredit of
the home product. The Hollywood
Crime and Punishment was almost
ludicrous in contrast to a picturiza-
tion of the Dostoievsky novel made in
France. On Wednesday and Thurs-
day of this week (afternoon and eve-
ning both days) the French version
of Les Miserables will be shown at the
Mendelssohn by the Art Cinema
League. Whether the difference be-
tween this production and last sea-
son's Hollywood version of the same
novel will be as great as between the
two versions of Crime and Punish-
ment remains to be seen. The French
picture has Harry Bauer as Jean Val-
jean (He was the police commis-
sioner in Crime and Punishment).
Charles Laughton and Frederic
March were starred in the Hollywood
version which did not attract a great
deal of attention.
According to Frank Nugent in his
review of the French Les Miserables
in the New York Times,- it depends
less on the work of individual actors
than on the direction, interpretation,
and ensemble playing. He said of
the picture, in part: " . . . we shall
have a different recollection of this
new Les Miserables. There will be no
spotlight of memory playing on one
or two characters, but a warm glow
gently suffusing an entire, well-
rounded production ... Beyond ques-
tion, the French Les Miserables has
its faults, but only the hypercritical
could be blinded by them to its equal-
ly unquestionable excellence."
Johnny Johnson: Review
The Group Theatre presents JOHNNY
JOHNSON. a legend. Play by Paul
Green. Music by Kurt Weill. Staged
by Lee Strasberg. Settings by Donald
Oenslager. Costumes by Paul Du
Pcnt. At the Forty-Fourth Street The-
atre. New York.
SHERE have been a few experi-
ments in new forms in the
theatre in recent years-but very few
-which parallel experiments in the
other arts. Some of the most in-
teresting have been the productions
of The Living Newspaper unit of the
WPA Federal Theatre which have
been patterned on the radio March of
Time and on documentary movies.
Johnny Johnson the new play by
Paul Green with music by Kurt Weill
is another experiment and a success-
ful one too.
As produced by the Group theatre
it is not only a play which brings fan-
tasy, poetry, music, and movement
to a satiric treatment of the prob-
lems of war but a blending of these
elements into a merry if sometimes
bitter harlequinade. More than that
it is pure theatre which makes de-
mands on the imagination of the au-
dience rather than letting the spec-
tators sit back and watch a realistic
portrayal of. everyday life.
Lee Strasberg, the director, has
conceived it as a kind of vaudeville
or revue and the play has some of
the faults of both but with all the
merits these theatre forms have at
their best together with the applica-
tion of the comedy of fantasy and
satire to an important problem. It
is a kind of rambling, impromptu
charade bubbling over with energy
which seems entirely appropriate to
the material supplied by Paul Green
and Kurt Weill.
Rather disjointed scenes of un-
equal merit are joined together by
the central charcter, Johnny John-
son, an idealist who cannot see the
sense of war and the war psychology.
He is weak, led along without much
pretest to go to the war but with a

growing disbelief in the saneness of
what he sees around him. The more
common sense arguments he brings
to his case the more insane he seems
to the rest of the world until at the
end in a poignantly moving scene of
great pathos, he is regarded as simply
a half-witted seller of toys on a!
