The Barii
Beside The Union .. ,
N A SMALL ramshackle building,
condemned several times as a fire
hazard, the classes in Play Production are still
held, and the rehearsals for Play Production
performances are still carried on, amidst crowded
piles of scenery.
From time to time for several years this has
been brought to public attention. Tentative plans
have been drawn up for rebuilding the barn-
like structure beside the Union, but students
are still meeting for classes in the condemned
building, still tripping over the piles of scenery.
Th Play Production staff does not want to
have the building rebuilt. They are afraid that
any temporary adjustments would postpone the
building of a modern structure in which they
would have sufficient room for rehearsals, classes
and the presentation of finished plays.
The caliber of the work presented by Play
Production in public has been consistently high;
the staff is patently worthy of better conditions

under which to work.
A Greater
Need. .
N THE PREVIOUS EDITORIAL
we called attention to the need
for another building on the campus. , At various
times it has been pointed out that the University
stands in need of additional facilities for housing
men and women and for additional class-room
and administrative purposes.
But despite these needs, and despite the need
which we have just finished pointing out, there
is one than which none is more important. This
is the general scale of faculty salaries.
It is unnecessary to review the general exodus
tvard other universities offering larger salaries
last year, but as students we would prefer a
capable instructor in an older building to one less
capable in the most beautiful of modern build-
ings.
Editor's Note
Attention is called to the rule that published
correspondence must be signed. A number of
letters recently received have not been publish'
because they did not bear the signature of the
author. Names of correspondents will be kept
confidential upon request.
It is also pointed out that the right is re-
served to condense all letters over 300 words.
Letters should be typewritten, if possible, and
double-spaced and on one side of the sheet only.

THE FORUM
The Run Of German Culture
To the Editor:
The issues between Mr. Willis Player and Mr.
Levi transcend the personalities involved. The
readers of Mr. Levi's and Mr. Player's letters
are, I should believe, profoundly interested in
this discussion of National Socialism, or German
Fascism.
The bitter, anti-semitic, and unsound state-
ments in Mr. Player's letter are derived from
an equally unsound knowledge of "German"
thought, culture and needs. He says that "Ger-
many . . . is . . . determined to shape its own
values rather than accept those forced upon it
by democratic dreamers and alien cultures."
There are several things that I am sure have
escaped his attention; for, otherwise, it be-
comes a deliberate, or unconscious untruth when
he writes that Naziism is the "exemplification of
the'German mind." Germany produced Goethe,
Lessing, Schiller, Heine, and others in literature;
Heyden, Weisman, Virshow, Haeckel and count-
less others in science; when one spoke of music'
Germany predominated, and so in all the pur-
suits of man her contribution was an inspiring
and valuable one. This historic past extended
into the present: literature, science and the arts,
to say nothing of a strong, progressive labor
movement, were features of the pre-Hitler Ger-
many. And when he came to power, when Ger-
many was faced with the world-economic crisis,
Hitler, pushed by the threatened privileged class
to the front of the masses of people, destroyed
the culture of Germany, burned magnificent
works of literature, and exiled thousands of
scientists and intellectuals.
Who are these people who were forced to
leave their homes? Does Mr. Player know? Does
he remember the greatest of German writers,
Thomas Mann, winner of the Nobel Prize in 1927?
In the face of a man such as this, the real rep-
resentative of Germany's literary past, how can
Mr. Player say Hitler represents the German
mind? Mann lives in Zurich now and his books,
since January, 1936, no longer appear in Berlin.
Klaus Mann, his son, wrote, "The irascibility and
aggressiveness noted in those circles which bear
the responsibility for Nazi culture may be under-
stood when one considers that the Nazis them-
selves, during their rule, have not produced a
single author who enjoys international or even
great national fame . . . Dr. Goebbels himself is
in despair. He complains and uses abusive
language. He arranges prize competitions for
young dramatists, but all to no avail; and the
poor theatre director of the Third Reich must
have recourse to old farces or to the few classics
in which no trace of 'despicable' convictions is
to be found." (Mann, I should add, is of what is
called "Aryan" stock.)
And what are the plays winning prizes in
Goebbel's contests? Again I should like to re-
mind Mr. Player of the time at the German
Culture Session of the Nuremberg Fascist Party
'Conference, when Herr Johnst, that National
Socialist poetaster, received the first prize for
his "Shlageter," a play in which he makes his
hero speak as follows:
"If you think a thought out to the end,
The result is sharp-shooting.
When I hear the word culture,
I cock my gun."
Is this in the spirit of the "German mind?"
I would rather believe that it is not. The Ger-
many is in exile with Thomas Mann (voluntary),
Albert Einstein, Ernst Toller, Feuchtwanger,
Franz Werfel, Stefan Zweig, Hermann Hesse,
Wasserman (dead) and innumerable others who
are waiting for and helping Germany to emerg
from an historical nightmare of, paganism; the
Germany is fighting heroically in the face of in-
conceivable terrorism for a better, happier world.
In a very brief conclusion, may I quote from
Mr. Player's bible, Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf"?
". ....as a result of shrewd and persistent
propaganda a people may be brought to think
heaven hell, and a life of misery a paradise."
-Joseph Bernstein.
Secret Sources Of Information?

To the Editor:
I once heard a college student begin a verbal
dissertation with the statement: "It is inevi-
table that I speak from some point of view.
Allow me to state that I am free, white, over
twenty-one, and a member of such and such
fraternity."
Perhaps some such statement should have
been included in Willis Player's letter to The
Daily in which he violently berates Mr. Levi.
From Mr. Levi's letter we can estimate his con-
nection with the conditions in Germany and
we can evaluate his statement accordingly.
Mr. Player however, gives us no background at
all. He seems to appreciate Germany's vigorous,
militant #campaign much more than does the
average disinterested American citizen. Perhaps
Mr. Player has access to pertinent news and
views about the Fatherland inaccessible to most
of us. If he were to make them available to us,
we might agree whole-heartedly with him in
everything he says. And then again we might
not.
-Justus Baird.
What Mr. Player Might Have Mean
To the Editor:
For some time I have been expecting someone
to take a verbal swing at M. Levi, and so I was
not exactly surprised when I read Mr. Player's
letter. Perhaps that letter was considerably
more of an outburst than was necessary, but I
could, nevertheless, feel a certain amount of
sympathy for it. When any individual speaks,
such as Professor Levi does, in a tone that implies
there are not two sides to a question, I suppose

Sharing Prosperity
-Wages Far Below Healthy Level-
(From the Pittsburgh Press)
S AMERICAN INDUSTRY plowing back
enough of its earnings into the home market1
in the form of wage increases?
The American Federation of Labor thinks not.r
In its November survey of business, the federa-
tion warns that, while recent wage increases areZ
"in the right direction," this country "must plan1
for a progressively rising wage level"-first forv
a minimum health standard, and, next for ar
"capacity production" level. Today, the A.F. of1
L. says, "between 10,000,000 and 15,000,000 Aimer-t
ican families" are living below the minimumI
health standard:
Based on estimates by Prof. Paul Nystrom oft
Columbia, and brought up to present pricesI
by the Labor Department cost-of-living index,
an American city family of four requires a bread-
winner working 40 hours a week steadily throughc
the year and earning 73 cents an hour, or abouI
$1,500 a year. That is the health minimum. It
will be remembered that Brookings Institute
found 7,500,000 city workers' families getting lessc
than $1,500 a year in so-called prosperous 1929.
On a basis of incomplete data, the federationc
finds that theaverage wage in the summer of
1936 was 58 cents an hour, or 15 cents below the
health minimum. In 1934, when NRA was op-c
erating, the average was 56 cents, or only 14I
cents below the necessary level which then was 70t
cents. Since then, while living costs have risen,
there "was hardly any increase in average hourly
wages."
This country will be in full economic healthc
when wages are high enough to allow consump-
tion of the output of our existing productivec
plant. A "capacity production" living level at
today's prices, the federation says, calls for anP
income of $3,625 for all American families. Such
a universal family income would not only solve]
the unemployment problem and start the in-r
dustrial plant going at full capacity, but accord-
ing to Dr. Mordecai Ezekiel of the Department ofr
Agriculture, would solve the farm problem byt
bringing into production 50,000,000 new acres
of land.1
We are far from that ideal. The $3,526 familyc
income means a wage of $1.77 an hour at seady
work for 40 hours a week for all city wage-
earning breadwinners. A few skilled workers get
that, but the great bulk of unskilled are still
struggling toward the goal of the health and
efficiency minimum of 73 cents an hour.
The unhealthy gap between mass purchasing1
power and the productive capacity of our landt
and machines has yet to be bridged.
"We hope," says the federation, "that indus-
trial executives will be wise enough to see that1
wage increases must not stop with the few efforts
featured in the press. Only by large and, con-
tinuing increases can we create a market great
enough for capacity production and full employ-9
ment."
Encounter
Driving the cows up on a summer night,
Charlie met Jesus under the old dead tree;
Might have been the new hired man, it might-
But Charlie knew it was He.
Charlie stood still while the cows went on
And blinked his young blue eyes.
Jesus looked like a pale young dawn
Walking from twilit skies.
"Master," said Charlie, whispering,
And took his straw hat off,
"Pa wants I should go a-preaching
In service of thyself."
He kicked some dry dung thoughtfully
And gazed off down the lane.
"But preacher-fellers, seems to me,
' Don't preach you very plain."
Charlie took his jack-knife out
And whittled out a whistle;
Jesus stood there watching him,
Pafe as the down of thistle.

"Well, Master," Charlie said, at last,
"I figure you'll agree-
To you and all us working guys
It ain't no mystery.
"Love's got a law that we ain't got,
But one that we can get,
And I tell Pa I druther rot,
Than jest to pray and set."
And Charlie gazed at Jesus
Under the old dead tree,
And put his whistle in his mouth
And shrilled it absently.
Above the head of Jesus
The sun blazed all at once;
The whistle fell from Charlie's mouth;
He reeled in radiance.
Charlie staggered back and stared,
For the dead tree grew again;
And Charlie cried, and when he dared,
Strode singing up the lane.
-Robert C. B. Campbell.

Although we missed Betty JaynesI
on the Ford program Sunday night
with Jose Iturbi conducting the or-

ports of her stealing the show. This,
15-year old songster, who made her
debut in Chicago this season in La
Boheme, seems to have a great fu-"
ture ahead of her. She is not listed
at present for any future programs.
ANDRE KOSTELANETZ and his
45-piece orchestra, which has
drawn much favorable comment from
all types of musicians, will be heard
again at 9 p.m. tomorrow over CBS
and will have as his guest soloist Nino
Martini. We remember one dis-
gruntled radio fan who, having heard
his fill of the tenor, was heard to
mumble something to the effect that
as far as he was concerned, Martini
meant nothing but a drink. However.
the criticism was far from justified,
as Nino is really quite a lad. The
program tomorrow night will include
everything from Sullivan's The Lost
Chord to Claypoole's Raggin' the
Scale.

Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra,
whom "we had the good luck to hear
during the Christmas holidays is on
a commercial with Jack Pearl, who
has returned in his former role of
the Baron Munchausen, over NBC at
9:30 p.m. every Monday. The Baron
fails to create a great desire to stay
home by the radio Monday evenings
and Dorsey's bunch is not given
much of a chance to show off. We
were fortunate in that when we saw
Tommy he had with him, in addition
to his regular stars, Bud Freeman,
Dave Tough and Joe. Dixon, the one
and only Bunny Berigan, one of the
best trumpet men in the country.
The climax of the evening occurred
when Freeman took five choruses on
the tenor in Bugle Call Rag and
Berigan took six. The band goes into
the Meadowbrook in New Jersey very
shortly and will undoubtedly have a
wire from there.
THE OPERA to be presented this
coming Saturday 'afternoon over
NBC will be Wagner's Die Walkuere.
Lotte Lehmannsoprano, and Lauritz
Melchior, tenor, 'are two of the Met-
ropolitan's stais who will have lead-
ing roles.
With the addition of Irving Good-
man, trumpet man, to Benny Good-
man's orchestra, the organization
now harbors the trio of Goodman
brotheis who have turned musical.
Benny on clarinet, brother Harry on
bass and brother Irving complete the
family roster in the world of jazz
and they are at present engaged in
swinging at the Hotel Pennsylvania
in New York. Irving, incidentally, was
formerly with Charles Barnett, wh
recently broke up his old band in
order to start another one. Many of
Barnett's men went over to Wood
Herman's newly-formed band, which
has been going like mad at the Rose-
land Ballroom in New York. Good-
man is broadcasting regularly Wed-
nesday and Saturday nights over CBS
in addition to his commercial Tues-
day nights on Jack Oakie's College.
Woody Herman is expected to be
back on Mutual very shortly.
Kerstin Thorberg, Swedish con-
tralto, will be the featured soloist
on the General Motors concert next
Sunday evening. She will also sing
in the presentation of Die Walkuere
Saturday afternoon.
