and to our social consciences.
This week students are offered assistance in

The other is the vocational guidance series,
sponsored by the literary college. Information
as regards conditions in professions and bus-
inesses are discussed by deans and professors of
the various schools and colleges, as well as what
professional training entails.
Dean James B. Edmonson of the. School of

August 29-
FISHING yesterday afternoon with Joe about
two miles off the hand islands. We had
pulled in a couple of pike and a nice bass and
were deliberating about going home when I heard
a punter in another boat maybe a quarter of a
mile off, curse violently. We idled over to see
what it was all about and were rewarded with,
"Damn if we didn't come out to get a mess o
perch for supper, bringin' no landin' net or
nothin' and George has gone and hooked a big
musky. Must weigh 20 pounds."
The fellow referred to as George was holding
a casting pole which was doing gymnastics all
by itself. I looked down over the side of their
boat and thought for a minute it was all a joke.
Then I saw the big fan shaped tail, and then
the fish turned. Good Lord, it looked like a cow
there in the water-a good 50 inches if I've ever
seen one. The water was only about 8 feet
deep and the musky wasn't excited in the least.
There wasn't much reason for him to be with
just a snell holding him. He would loll up near
the surface for a minute like a pike and then
with a determined swish, return to the bottom a
the reel sang madly and George would gasp "Oh,
my Gawd" and tighten his grip on the pole.
"Careful, George, don't beef him none, easy
now, coax him. Don't beef him, George, at a boy,
closer, now umps, whomps, grab him, splasho,
kerplunk." The musky went right through the
net and tossing the hook with a disdainful flip of
his head, splashed back into the lake.

A Social Viewpoint For All


Atavism. . .

N FRANCE there is the guillotine,
in Germany the Aryan axe, and
in the United States the drunken mob, the hot
tar, the rope slung over a limb, squeezing the life
out of some limp human in a black skin. Not
a very pleasant picture, not one to warrant sing-
ing about the brotherhood that is supposed to
crown our nation "from sea to shining sea." Yet
it is within our means to eradicate the phe--
nomenon of lynching from our nation by the pas-
sage of the Wagner-Van Nuys anti-lynching bill.
- Some vestige of brotherhood may be restored
if this piece of vital legislation be passed and
properly administered. It attacks the problem
at its core-local and state government em-
ployees responsible for the protection of persons
from lynching. For the crime of neglecting,
refusing, or wilfully failing "to make all diligent
efforts to protect the victim" from lynching, offi-.
cers of state and subsidiary governmental divi-
sions are liable to a fine not exceeding $5,000, or
maximum imprisonment of five years, or both.
For failing in the same manner to apprehend,
keep in custody or prosecute members of the
mob there is the same penalty.
Lynchings in the nation have shown a high
degree of consistency for being performed and
accompanied by some mysterious inability on
the part of peace officers to apprehend the lead-
ers or any part of the mob which perpetrate the
awful crime. The state of Maryland has had
particular difficulty in securing convictions of,
members of mobs. By making lynching a fed-
eral offense for which even the negligent police
officials are liable the number of lynchings
should fall substantially.
Under the Lindbergh law individuals are pun-
ishable for kidnaping. With the proposed amend-
ment of this law by the Wagner-Van Nuys Bill it
becomes a federal offense to "transport in inter-
state commerce a person 'unlawfully abducted
and held for the purposes of punishment, correc-
tion or intimidation.' " Thus lynching looms as
a serious matter which lax police officials will
have to consider judiciously.
Admitting as few flaws as can dot a legal
document the bill makes it an offense for the
state and every governmental subdivision to
allow lynching in its territorial jurisdiction.
More encouraging as a definite check on the
quaint American madness is the provision in the
bill rendering those local and state officers liable
to between $2,000 and $10,000 as compensation
.for injury or death to a person abducted from
that officer's territorial jurisdiction.
If, however, the officers can prove by a "pre-
.ponderance of evidence" that its peace officers
and citizens used "all diligence" to defend
the lynch victim, they will not be required to pay
the required sum. Satisfaction of judgment

To the Editor:
A college education, we are told, isedirected to-I
ward teaching one to think for one's self. By
this, I presume, a college education aims to de-
velop one's power of analysis to where one can
think clearly and intelligently along any line.
In addition to, being a "slip-stick" artist, the
Engineer, who eventually will deal with labor,
should be informed on the C.I.O., its origin, de-
velopment, future, and significance. How else
can the future leader of industry, deal intel-
ligently and fairly with the labor problem? The
Forester, should be able to visualize, not only
trees and acres of land, but he must understand
the problems of the humans who depend upon
those sterile acres for sustenance. In a like
fashion, the Geologist must emerge from beneath.
"dips and synclines," the Chemist should occa-
sionally peer beyond the narrow confines of the
test tube, and the Zoologist might profitably
acquaint himself with social problems.in addition
to tinkering with physical problems of animals.
If this is what we mean by a college education,
then the question of whether or not this aim
is being achieved becomes pertinent.
Are graduates of professional schools exposed
to the "social viewpoint?" Have they learned
to depend upon the "New York Times," "St.
Louis Post-Dispatch," and "Christian Science
Monitor" or do they read the "Chicago Tribune,"
"New York Herald Tribune," "Detroit Free
Press," and "Detroit Times?" Are they guided
by what appears in the "Forum," ."Atlantic
Monthly," "Harpers," "Nation" and "New Re-
public," or* do they depend upon the "Literary
Digest," "Time Magazine," "American Mercury,"
"Liberty," "Saturday Evening Post," and "Col-
liers?" Do they know the difference between
a reactionary, a conservative, and a liberal?
What is a Communist? When reading the "think
pieces" of a well known publisher who delights
in branding those who oppose the "American
Way" as Communists-The President of the
United States enjoyed this. honor-do profes-
sional school graduates discount his stupid
utterances. How are they to decide intelligently
whether or not the President's Supreme Court
plan is socially desirable when those upon whom
they depend-faculty in Engineering, Chemistry,
Forestry, Geology and Zoology-clamber all over
each other in their eagerness to be among
the "select 79," while the departments of Bus-
iness Adminisration, Sociology, Economics, His-
tory, and Philosophy boast a grand total of only
four signatures.
Who then is better qualified to interpret the
social significance of the President's Court Plan,
the technical and scientific research men who,
dissolved in their narrow field, are "too busy"
to bother about social problems, or men who have
given life-times to a study of the problems of so-
ciety? If it is the former, then I, after four years
of professional training, have nothing but sym-
pathy for the professional school freshman who
comes to get a college education-that is, an
education which will enable him to think not only
in terms of foot pounds, board feet, grams, and
parthenogenesis, but in human values as well!

And The Court
(Max Lerner inThe Nation)
FOR TWO WEEKS I have followed
anxiously the serialized account
of Walter Lippmann's hopes and
fears for the Constitution. I had two
motives for my religious pursuit.
Here, I felt, in these flowers plucked
from Mr. Lippmann's corner of the
Herald Tribune crannied wall, I
should get at the secret of his whole
universe. And here too I should
find summed up the mature thinking
of conservatives on the constitutional
In the first I was not disappointed.
I found everything in Mr. Lippmann's
career rolled up in these six articles
as in a single ball. Something in his
subject had clicked with him as
never before. I found spread out
before me the entire anatomy of his
mind-his easy expository tone, his
dialectical skill, his genius for clarity
to the point of bareness, his rhetoric
which is always just on the point of
becoming eloquence, his magisterial
air, his talent for opening his mind
to no more of his subject than for
the moment he cares to admit, his
tone of fairness, his capacity for
concealing the impulsions of his
thinking while laying bare its frame-
work, the smugness about his own
motives and the attribution of dis-
honesty to others which I can only
describe as a moral megalomania.
And I found in addition what one
finds when the usually cold Mr. Lipp-
mann gets really excited-a sort of
glacial hysteria that fascinated me
by its union of opposites.
The second part of my quest was
disheartening. Clearly Mr. Lippmann
is heir to the whole tradition of
American political thought. What
use does he make of it? Confronted
by President Roosevelt's plan for re-
organizing the Supreme Court he
calls it dastardly, dishonest, reaction-
ary, "audacious, ingenious and at
bottom stupid"-an act of usurpa-
tion," a "bloodless coup d'etat" which
strikes at "the moral foundations of
the republic."
This leaves one a bit breathless and
stunned. It is possible to discuss the
President's proposal on three planes
-the plane of legality, the plane of
morality, and the plane of the me-
chanics and dynamics of government.
On the score of legality, Mr. Lipp-
mann can have no quarrel with the
President, except to say that the
legality is only a cloak for dark mo-
tives and something morally sinister.
On the score of morality I can have
no quarrel with Mr. Lippmann: he is
welcome to his own moral canons,
provided he will let others have theirs.
Mr. Lippmann should remember that
"moral foundations of the republic"
is one of those stereotypes which he
so admirably analyzed years ago in
his book, "Public Opinion," and which
is chiefly used as an emotional sub-
stitute for thought.
Let us stay on the plane of political
analysis. Mr..Lippmann's chief fear
is that the measure will destroy the
independence of the judiciary. He
sees the court as being "packed" with
"young henchmen" of the President,
political hacks responsible to his de-
sires. And then, by a parade of
imaginary horribles, he converts a
statute for~ retiring justices at seventy
into a coup d'etat.
What is not fantasy in this an-
alysis is based upon faulty histor
and naive political theory. The in-
dependence of the judiciary does not
go beyond the constitutional safe.
guards. It does not extend to non-
partisanship. Every President "packs'
the court when he appoints a justice
Presidents have always wanted men
of their own persuasion on the bench
Our greatest judges-Marshall and
Taney, outstandingly - have been
men of political and economic con-
victions, deeply embroiled in politic
before their appointment. Surely Mr
Lippmann has read the letters be-
tween an earlier Roosevelt and Sen
ator Lodge on the question of whe

ther one O. W. Holmes, Jr., had the
right sort of economic views. By ac
cepting the myth of judicial neutral-
ity Mr. Lippmann misreads history
By charging the President with seek

court changes the Constitution. I

journed session of the Constitutiona
Convention." Under the new pla:
the "independent judiciary," whic

Enterprise, would merely continue it
work within new limits on age an

So much for thescritical portion c
Mr. Lippmann's articles. There re

Lippmann admits that some of th
Supreme Court devisions have dis

Fair Grounds. Twilight has fallen as the horses
loped around the track, each jockey trying to
save his mount for the second lap. Round again
with Almac running a nice third. In the back
stretch he looks good, right up there. At the
top of the stretch he makes his move; he's being
taken to the front. An outsider passes him; Al-
mac hangs for just a second and then comes

tion safe, except for such yellow shirkers like the
"peace" council.
This peace council is really one of the most
potent threats to our peace. If they had their
way we would be a nation unarmed and would
be attacked within five years. They are so
frightened of the "horrors" of war that they
are unable to think intelligently about how it is
best to prevent it. If the United States had had
a reasonably large army in 1916, England and
Germany would not have dared step on our
toes as they did. We would have never been
forced into the war.
In the past our defense policy has been ex-
pressed in our national motto-"IN GOD WE
TRUST." But then it took years to fight a
war, and we were not in any immediate danger
from invasion. (Even then we were invaded
twice). Now there are three fanatical dictators
