NIGHT EDITOR: ROBERT WEEKS
The Obstacle To
Strike Negotiations.. ..
TODAY 1,500 National Guardsmen
are on hand in Flint, following
rioting at Fisher Body plant No. 2 Monday night
in which 27 men were injured. The Civil Lib-
erties Union is preparing a hearing on the causes
of the riot for Sunday, and the strike situation
looks more3critical than at any time since it
began Dec. 30.
The rioting began, as not all newspapers noted,
when company guards tried to prevent the entry
of food to the sit-down strikers. The guards had
already turned off the heat, and were hoping by
locking the gates against the entry of food, and
upsetting the ladder by which food was being de-
livered after the locking of the gates, to starve
the strikers out of the plants. Strikers resisted,
and when the city police came with tear gas
bombs, the fight turned into a riot.
Legally, the strikers are clearly in the wrong.
They have been ordered by court order to vacate
the premises, and the company guards are within
their legal rights in preventing the entry of food.
But the issue involves more than legal rights.
Without condoning the -sit-down technique, we
can still understand why the strikers are unwill-
ing to vacate the plants before negotiations are
concluded. They have demanded, as a condition
of their removal from the plants, that General
Motors agree not to operate or move any of the
machinery until negotiations have been satisfac-
torily concluded. This means that the Union,
through its possession of the plants (though il-
legal) is insisting that the final conditions of
settlement must be acceptable to it-an advan-
tage which would, if accepted, give considerable
power to the Unions in the negotiations.
Is this unfair of the Unions? Walter Liproann
gives a sensible answer. Yes, says Mr. Lippmann
it is unreasonable, but it arises out of a distrust,
of. collective bargaining accumulated from the
past. "Though the management and the Union
both profess to believe in the principle of col-
lective bargaining, in fact they have not ac-
quired the habit of mind which alone makes
collective bargaining possible."
"Mr. Martin is wrong in his present position
and he must be told that he is wrong. But Mr.
Sloan, being interested in operating General
Motors rather than in winning a debate, will do
well to recognize that the reason Mr. Martin is
afraid to negotiate freely is that he and Mr.
Sloan have not acquiied the habit of negotiating
with one another. The way to acquire that habit
is to negotiate.
"The far-sighted policy, therefore, is to make
a compromise on 'the question of the strikers in
thae factories in order to get negotiations under
FTER a three-years' trial, Hiram
College has decided to adopt the
"intensive course" plan, by which students con-
centrate on one subject for nine weeks and then
take up another, instead of dividing time among
four or five subjects simultaneously.
The students, faculty and trustees approved.
of this plan, which has been called "the elimina-
tion of the time-clock in education." Says the
New York Times: "Probably never again at Hi-
ram College will students rush from fifty min-
utes in Plato to fifty minutes in chemistry, fol-
lowed by a dose of Spanish. Never again will
there be an examination week with five 'finals'

ulty and students liked the greater flexibility of
time permitted by the method, greater unifica-
tion of effort, release from the hysteria of exam-
ination week and increased time for individual

To the Editor:
Your critic, Mr. Harry Bethke, in his high-
spirited review in last Thursday's Daily of, the
Chapin family exhibit seems to have missed the
point about children's painting.
The work of Miriam and Barbara Chapin was
not included in the exhibit because their parents
are painters, nor yet because it is "cute"-if in-
deed it is. Children turn quite naturally to the
various means of artistic expression, including
of course drawing and painting, and the best of
them may be thought of not unfairly as incipient
artists. While their work is necessarily incom-
plete, technically and otherwise, and always
limited, it frequently has genuine artistic valid-
ity, a fact which modern painters, among others,
have been quick to recognize. Children are
neo-primitives, and their work at its best has
the same qualities as other primitive art: while
faulty from a factual point of view and almost
always two-dimensional, it is often startlingly
graphic, beautifully rhythmical, and nearly al-
ways decorative. Children, like primitive artists
generally, and like all Oriental artists, work
from their mental images and not from definitely
perceived impressions of their subject. Small
wonder that modern art in its successful attempt
to throw off the dominance of the merely retinal
vision which was the legacy of Impressionism,
and to proceed once more from some sort of inner
vision (which, as a matter of fact, great art has
always done) invoked the example of children's
art, the art of primitives, and to some extent
the art of the Orient.
The work of children, like that of adults, varies
in excellence though, for certain reasons, hiited
at above, nearly all children's work is interest-
ing. I would disagree with Mr. Bethke to the
point of asserting that the work of Miriam
and Barbara Chapin displayed here shows un-
usual artistic merit, and well withstands the best
of comparison with that of their elders. As a
matter of fact, the modern Mexican school
of painting is shot through with primitive feel-
ing, and Barbara's simple and highly decorative
portraits are very close, in viewpoint at least,
to the work of some of the good Mexican paint-
ers-and not because she has looked at their
work or been influenced by it. In this sense, the
work of both the children is peculiarly in place
in an exhibition with this subject-matter.

The Race Problem
To the Editor:
It is with hesitation that I mention the race
situation apropos of the current discussion of
National Socialism, for it is an aspect of the
discussion which tends to arouse emotion and
to hurt feelings. Let me preface my remarks
by saying that I am equally appreciative of the
German and Jewish races. Further, I am doubt-
ful that there exists a pure race (German or
Jewish), and when I mention "race," I mean
those who consider themselves to constitute a
The fact remains that the racial theories of
the Nazis have stirred up as much bitterness and
prejudice as any other of their ideas. They have
adopted the notion (evolved by the Jews long be-
fore the "Aryans" became self-conscious) that a
race has a unique contribution to make to world-
culture and that to make this contribution, a
race must maintain its purity. This also is a
thesis practised by the Jews. By rationalization,
the Nazis have decided that their race (the race
they believe themselves to constitute) is superior
to other races. Similarly, we find in the Bible
that the Jews are God's favorite children. It is
inevitable that when two races, each determined
to preserve its uniqueness and "be itself," dwell,
in a common state and in sufficient numbers to
be powerful, that friction should result. It is a
case of mutual intolerance, of two races, think-
ing in the same fallacious terms. In Germany,
the Nazis had superiority of numbers, and im-
posed their will on the Jews. Some of my Jew-
ish friends tell me that in Palestine there are,
tendencies toward Jewish intolerance of Arabs,
that the Jews hope to dominate the Arabs in
Palestine, contributions for this cause having
been sent from Jewish communities all over the
world. I admire the American Jew, for I believe

****** IT ALL
BLOATED after a big Sunday ylinner, three
wandering Greeks including your columnist,
ambled out the river road in the early afternoon
and stopped to get warm at the Golfside Riding
Academy, owned by the erstwhile Michigan
scholar, Bob Kennedy.
Intending only to rest a bit, the three stalwarts
became interested in the business and found
themselves up on three steeds entitled Lady O,
Lady Ester, and Dixie Sweetheart. Lady O dis-
played a tendency to take things easy as we got
well, underway and with Bob Christie making
his amateur debut in the pilot house, the gallant
10-year-old was apparently content with show
Bill Gunderson and I would, from time to
time, wage rather unique sprints. I would cluck
Lady Esther into a rocking chair roll and draw
up on Bill. Bill, intent only on holding Dixie
Sweetheart down to a trot, would curse fran-
tically as his steed, apparently a born front
runner, broke into a bucking gallop. With me
exhorting my beast to greater efforts and with
Bill hollering desperately at his to slow down,
he would slowly draw away and win every heat.
It was most discouraging.
At one time in the proceedings trouble was
narrowly averted. Bill got off his horse to ad-
just his stirrups, dropping the reins over Dixie's
head. I held her by the head while he fixed
things to his satisfaction, and then he clam-
bered back on and said, "Have you got her?"
"Sure" I said, still holding on to the horse's
"O.K.," he said, and we each clucked and sud-
denly I saw what he meant. He meant had I
got the reins, and I hadn't, and he was galloping
down a little wooded trail, stretched far over
Dixie's neck reaching vainly for the dangling
bridle and imploring the horse to "Whoa boy,
nice boy, whoa, o -you."
So it was that three, men with cold feet came
home with warm seats, happy however, in the
fact that they had at last found a swell Sunday
pastime, even in winter. No longer must we
dream of Tropical Park where the favorites romp
or Havre De Grace where the long dogs cut the
melons. Instead of trying to outsmart the
owners who have a lot of trouble out-thinking
their own ponies, we can now deal with the
ponies directly, and in the long run it'sta lot
RAY GOODMAN, sports scribe, and the most
partisan fan the Michigan cage team boasts
of, held on to his hat high in the press box after
the Northwestern game Monday night and yelled
"Keee-riste, what a breeze!" Ray won five and a
half in the last minute of that great ball game
and preserved his record as an expert to boot...
WJBK broadcast the game and the announcer
lost track of the score and his voice in the last
50 seconds. . . Cappy Cappon and three valiant
Northwestern reserves picked up more than half
a dollar in coins tossed by the crowd at the game.
Those three Purple cagers, incidentally showed
Michigan up pretty badly as sportsmen. When
a Michigan crowd gets to tossing pennies at a
visiting team for no reason at all, the general
state of the union is pretty poor. . . Gil Tilles has
at last decided upon the 10 most beautiful women
of the campus, and has sent his January Gar-
goyle off to press, happy in the thought that he

THE BETTY BAKER murder trial, though
packed with courtroom drama and the pre-
senting spectacle of a woman accused of a heinous
crime, is, when the court proceedings are fin-
ished for recess or adjournment, just the picture
of a lot of intimate friends talking things over.
Mrs. Baker is called "Betty" by everybody, and
she addresses Prosecutor Albert Rapp, the man
who seeks to prove her guilty of first degree
murder and imprison her for life, as "Hey, Al."
The other Al in the .case, Al Baker, husband
of the pretty defendant who once earned 40 dol-
lars a night dancing in Detroit theatres, is the
man who is taking the real beating. It is to
be hoped that the Ann Arbor police department
will be big enough to discount the unfavorable
publicity which the patrolman's wife has brought
upon it, and reinstate Al Baker in the immediate
Mrs. Baker's attorney, Frank B. DeVine, has

IMAGINE A PAINTING- the sub-
ject a group with one dominant
figure but with others supporting or
complimenting it. All are necessary
to' the complete design. The central
figure is complete, beautifully mod-
elled, perfect in composition and
clor-a living, human figure. But
for some reason the canvas around
it is bare except for a few charcoal
strokes indicating the other neces-
sary figures. Such a painting would
not be unlike the production of
Hedda Gabler, now at the Cass.
which has Mme. Nazimova in the
Her Hedda is a complete figure
which brings out all the subtle im-
plications of Ibsen's unusual charac-
ter. More than that she gives it
almost tragic stature by the power of
her acting. At the end she gains
sympathy for an almost entirely un-
sympathetic character having carried
the audience through to the final act
with increasing interest and emo-
tional response. This sympathy is
not an invention of the actress. It
is plainly indicated by the play-
wright by such touches as Hedda's
pitiful appeal to her husband and
Mrs. Elvstead to be of some help with
Because the play (to reducedit tc
the simplest terms) is a study of
a character out of harmony with heI
environment, it is all the.more neces-
sary that the people representing the
environment be portrayed with some
force and as skillfully as the central
figure. In this production the bad
acting of almost all the other char-
acters destroys the unity and bal-
ance. This is especially unfortunate
in a play in which the characters
are so perfectly related to each other
and in which each scene of the play
so definitely leads to the next as it
does in Hedda Gabler.
McKay Morris as Judge Brack is
the only one who is playing in the
same scale at all. Edward Trevor's
Eilert Lovborg is sincere but lacks
authority. Harry Ellerbe's Tesma
is crude low comedy most of the
time and is always projecting itself
out of the composition. Viola Frayne'
Mrs. Elvstead gives us no clear pic-.
ture of the woman. In the last act
her emotional outburst is embarrass-
ingly uncomfortable. Leslie Bing-
ham who gave effectively realistic
performances of old ladies in Kath-
erine Cornel1's production of Flowers
of the Forest and in Merrily We Roll
Along, makes Aunt Julia unduly ri-
diculous and caricatured in her first
scene. Tesman's aunt is really just
a sweet old lady whom Hedda is un-
able to like because she represents
the middle class respectable poverty
Hedda has falen into. However Miss
Bingham plays the scene in the last
act with quiet dignity and sincere
emotion. Fortunately, the others
seem also, in the last act, to keep
more in the picture and play with
more restraint and sincerity.
But it is Nazimova's performance
that raises the play to almost the
stature of classical tragedy. Her di-
rection, too, with its rather striking
use of dark and light space raises
the play out of the realism in which
Ibsen has superficially placed it.
Ibsen's plays seem to me not the
least bit dated because the conflicts,
the characters are quite as universal
as, in a totally different way, Shake-
Because of the interest of the play
and the power of Mme. Nazimova's
performance it is not to be missed.
Neither is her Mrs. Alving in Ibsen's
Ghosts which can be seen Thursday
through Saturday of this week.
N SPITE of bombast, romantic ex-
aggeration, diffuseness, and melo-
drama, the essential strength of Vic-
tor Hugo's idea-his passionate cry
against injustice comes through even
when his novel is transfered to the
less suitable medium of the screen.
Tpis is due largely to the stature
given the character of Jean Valjean
by the acting of Harry Baur. Sim-,
plicity, tremendous sincerety and a
direct and straightforward handling
of an almost impossible task are his
contribution to the picture.
Otherwise the tangled plot of the
great novel and the motivation of
its characters cannot be logically ex-
plained on the screen. It seems a
jerky series of episodes-interesting,
though, and often powerful. It is only
the portrayal of the character of
Jean Valjean that holds it together.
It is impossible to compare the work
of Frederic March in the American
version with that of Mr. Baur in the
French Version. Charles Laughton,
however, makes the character of
Javert more credible than he is in the
Pictorially the picture is interest-
ing and seems authentic in scenery
and costume. Arthur Honneger's
music is a distinct aid to the picture.
Sometime I hope, we will be able
to see a movie in the Mendelssohn
