A RMING THEM with tear gas, nau-
seating gas, and "equipment," the
local sheriff, Jacob B. Andres, is forming a
special force of "Veterans' Military Police" to
forestall any "violence, sit-down strike or mob
rule," he announces in the papers.
He will recruit members from the American
Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. By
creating a series of mobilization centers, the
Sheriff will be able to call them together for
action instantly, at any time of day or night.
We say that this action has in it some of
the elements of fascism.
The police have a legitimate function in labor
disputes. In Detroit they are engaged in ferret-
ing out the gangster element in labor unions.
These racketeers have tapewormed themselves
into unions and are now serving to discredit the
principle of legitimate trade-union activity, and
the police, if they step there, are rendering unions
an invaluable service. In New York Special Pros-
ecutor Thomas E. Dewey over a long period has
been painstakingly at work purging the unions of
former bootleggers now making unions a paying
racket. No one recognizes the existence of these
elements in unions more than those who see
the necessary part which legitimate trade unions
are to play in our national economy.
But we do not believe that police, vigilante
and military force should be employed in in-
timidating workers against striking, nor' in ar-
bitrating sit-down strikes by violent ejection
of the strikers.
However noble may be the intentions of Sher-
iff Andres, the effect of his widely-publicized
mobilization of veterans will frighten workers
to the point where they will be content to accept
unjust conditions rather than risk the clubs and
gas of Andres' Vigilantes. He is in fact mobiliz-

ing veterans (they were suckers once before)
to the defense of private property and the
rights of owners to their six per cent.
Several days ago we spoke in these columns
of the reaction among the middleclass to the
rising prices, and the danger of fascist organiza-
tions expressing this dissatisfaction against the
working class, instead of our meeting the prob-
lem with legislation for the regulation of min-
imum wages, maximum hours and prices and the
arbitration of labor disputes. Sheriff Andres'
Vigilante Crew is a manifestation of this reac-
tion. It is in such a form that fascism will
come, if it ever should, to America. It will not,
perhaps carry the shirt motif, but it will have
at its base such organizations as the Black Le-
gion, the Liberty League, the National Union
for Social Justice and Andres' Vigilantes.

0NE OF THE FINEST PIANQ DUOS to be
heard on the air, Ethel Bartlett and Rae
Robertson, really Mr. and Mrs. Robertson, will be
featured on the Ford Sunday Evening Hour to-
night. The orchestra will be under the direction
of Fritz Reiner and the program will include the
prelude to "Die Meistersinger," Wagner; "Ron-
do," Chopin; "The Beautiful Blue Danube,"
Strauss, Schulz and Evler; and the "Treasure
Waltz," from "The Gypsy Baron," Strauss. The
Robertsons are from England. This is their
ninth American tour. ,
Bette Davis will present a preview of her
new motion picture "Marked Woman" at 9 p.m.
Friday over the Columbia Broadcasting System.
John Boles, the movie star who is constantly
raising a mustache so that he can trim it off
again, will be heard on Jack Oakie's College
Tuesday. Frank Fay will match wits with Oakie
during the same broadcast.

The commercials on Ted Weems' Sunday noon-
time program are some of the worst that have yet
been sent over the air. Some person with an
accent that is obviously rehearsed all week pur-
ports to be from Vienna and dispenses in gut-
tural tones some facts as to why it is necessary
to have the particles in your facial treatment
all the same size. These plugs, in addition to the
fact that Ted Weems is, after all, only Ted
Weems, makes the program hardly worth lis-
tening to.
Trombonist Plays Barrelhouse
THERE IS BAND BROADCASTING from the
Meadowbrook in New Jersey over CBS sev-
eral times a week that plays in a style that is
catching on. Les Brown is the maestro fronting
the band and he has come up from an engage-
ment in Louisville's Casa Madrid. He has a
good drummer who gives the organization a great
deal of lift. His trombonist plays effortlessly
and has developed an easygoing barrel-house
manner that ranks with the styles of better
known men. The clarinet man plays easily, at
times too limpidly, and the tenor man has a
good tone but lacks versatility, The hot trumpet
might achieve some fine results if he could
resist his temptation to climb sky-high. All in
all, however, Brown has a fine organization and
should improve with age.
Sir Herbert Samuel, leatler of the old guard
Liberal Party in England and chairman of the
Council for German Jewry, will be one of the
speakers on the international broadcast at 6
p.m. Saturday on the occasion of Passover. Rabbi
Stephen S. Wise will give his greetings to the
Jews of America from New York City and Sir
Herbert will speak ,from London.

Marian Anderson, Negro contralto, will be
the soloist on tonight's General Motors Concert.
This will be Miss Anderson's first American ap-
pearance of the season: She will sing "Ave
Maria," and "Death and the Maiden," Schubert;
"O mio Fernando" from "La Favorita," Doni-
zetti; and two Negro spirituals. The orchestra
will include in its share of the program "Fin-
landia," Sibelius; "Artist's Life," Strauss; and
Symphony No. 2 in D Major, opus 73, Brahms.

WEEK INREVIEW
NATIONAL
Sitting Tight
LABOR CONTINUED to top the news of the
week. Maintaining his Flint policy of 'rea-
son and justice,' Governor Murphy issued a state-
ment Wednesday appealing for peaceful solution
of the Chrysler sit-down strike. Newspapers
throughout the land rantheadlines over the story
containing Murphy's statement, interpreting his
words as stern warnings to workers who were
'flouting law and order.'
Particular emphasis was put on the need fbr
legislation modeled after the NRA for the miti-
gation of serious capital-labor controversies. He
went on to say that "many of our troubles and
disorders are due to injustices and unhealthy
conditions that are inherent in an unregulated
competitive system. We may say also that the
refusal of backward employers to recognize prop-
erly the right to collective bargaining has con-
tributed in good measure to the present unfor-
tunate situation."
Judge Allan Campbell granted an injunction
to the Chrysler Corporation providing for the
evacuation of the company's plants. Failure
to obey the order carried a fine of $10,000,000
against all the possessions of all of more than
100 named defendants. Workers remained
staunch in their refusal to leave the $50,000,000
Chrysler works unless they are recognized as
sole bargaining agents. Both sides continued
to sit tight while conciliators attempted to bring
about peaceful solutions despite sheriff's organ-
ization of armed forces.
* *~ * *
A SECOND MORAL VICTORY for labor came
in the form of National Labor Relations
Board action against Remington Rand, Inc.
Earlier in the week the Board had ordered
the company to reinstate 4,000 workers thrown
out of work last May when their strike was
broken. The company maintained that it had
not violated the Wagner Labor Relations Act
as charged and refused to comply. Not to be
embarrassed by lack of force to carry out its
order the Board initiated court action. The
company quickly signed an agreement with the
strikers. s
More Court Proposals
A comparatively quiet week passed for the Su-
preme Court battle thatis being waged through-
out the nation as more suggestions for coping
with the court problem came up out of the pro-
fuse discussion.
This week's suggestion number one-Senator
Pittman urges modification of the President's
proposal to increase the membership of the Court
from nine to fifteen justices. In addition he ad-
vocates a constitutional amendment to fix the
membership at that number "to reassure hesi-
tant liberals who fear the precedent which might
be established."
This week's suggestion number two--spry old
Senator Norris advanced a plan for a Congres-
sional act requiring a two-thirds vote by the
Supreme Court to invalidate acts of Congress
plus an amendment fixing tenure at nine years
for all federal justices.
TRAGEDY visited the Texas oil fields Thurs-
day when a New London school explosion
destroyed the lives of between 500 and 700 chil-
dren and teachers. The removal of mangled
bodies from the debris combined with mothers'
hysteria added to the traged, as martial law
was clamped down on the city by Governor Allred
and an investigation uegun.
FOREIGN
Weathering Storms
The French Popular Front government, stand-
ing on a three-legged base, remained firm this

week while new fascist-communist fighting broke
out in the streets of working class Clichy. A fas-
cist motion picture was presented at a theatre
in the heart of communist territory (the work-
ing class suburbs of the city are known as "the
Red Ring around Paris"). Workers in the area
protested to the police to prohibit the gathering,
had their protest brushed aside, became enraged
at the fascists and were provoked into bloody
street fighting.
A half day strike by Parisian workers followed
to protest the Social Party, a new cloak for the
old fascist Croix de Feu, aspirants to dictatorship
in France. The arrest of de La Rocque was de-
manded.
Schneider-Creusot, one of the world's largest
producers of war materials passed into the hands
of the French government Sunday, conforming
to the promise on which Blum was elected to his
office.
MADRID'S LOYALIST FORCES beat back a
concerted drive of Italian and German
troops with the aid of 492 bombs dropped and
200,000 machine gun bullets fired. Forty-five
miles from Madrid, in the Guadalajara moun-
tains, the government forces checked the drive
and immediately assumed the offensive to stem
the advances.
In London machinery was set in motion to
investigate reports that Italy had permitted "vol-
unteers" to enter Spain, violating the non-inter-
vention agreement.

THEATRE
-Costumes, 'Henry VI'-
By JAMES DOLL
N VIEW of the production of
Shakespeare's Henry VIII which
Play Production now has in rehearsal,
it seems an appropriate time to the-
orize about stage costuming in gen-
eral and its application to the current
job of designing and building about
80 sets of costumes.
The purpose of stage costuming is
often misunderstood. Too much at-
tention is given to display and purely
pictorialsvalues, too little to theureal
function of the design: to aid in the
iinterpretation of the play. The cos-
tumes should never be a medium for
the designer's ingenuity or virtuosity
but should, without calling attention
to themselves, be subservient to the
director's conception of the play. In
a sense costumes are almost more im-
portant than scenery as they are al-
most as much a medium for the ac-
tor's expression as his body.
In Henry VIII the first problem is
to decide which period will be used-
that of the action, 1520-33, or of the
writing and first. performance, 1613.
That it was originally played in con-
temporary costume may possibly be
inferred from the anachronistic men-
tion of3"short" blist'red breeches"
But this seems hardly advisable
for a modern audience. The Hol-
bein portraits of Henry and his court
are so well known that these char-
acters would not look right dressed
in Jacobean costume. It might seem
affected and call attention to itself.
So this production will use the cos-
tume of the early 16th century.
Yet for the dancers in Katherine's
vision, the prologue, and the "mas-
quers habited like shepherds" in the
ballroom scene, costumes based on
Inigo Jones designs for court mas-
ques of the period of the play seem
to be called for.
-Much Research Needed-
The primary source for costume re-
search for the period is Holbein's,
wood-cuts, paintings, and drawings.
It is necessary to have this and the
other available material well in mind
so that the designs can be freely and
easily worked out. As the project
goes on many details must be
checked.
There are, in the play, the historic-
al ceremonies of the coronation of
Anne Boleyn, the trial of Katherine,
and the christening of the infant
Elizabeth. It is sometimes possible
to find in Hall's Chronicle's exactly
what the principals wore at those
events. Moreover descriptions are
supplied at unusual length in the
play itself.
Neverthelessit may not be advis-
able even if it were possible, to be
entirely authentic. First, because
this may not convey the desired im-
pression to a present-day audience.
Second, strict accuracy cannot be
maintained because Shakespeare and
his collaborator departed from it.
The actual christening of Elizabeth,
for example, was very different from
the way it is depicted in the play.
It all resolves into knowing the
play, understanding it thoroughly,
not only by itself, but, as far as pos-
sible, in relation to the literature and
art of the period.
-Costume Reflects Age-
While a play should not look like
an animated costume-book, it is often
true that the more one holds to au-
thenticity the better it is for the play.
The relation between the dress and
the life, art, and social conditions of
a period has. scarcely been investigat-
ed.
In certain periods, the 18th cen-
tury for example, this relation can
be quite easily demonstrated. And
the differences between the costume

in the first and last years of the 16th
century seem to parallel th differ-
ences not only in the other decorative
arts, but in the literatures as well.
A detail like lace, is an example. It
was not worn at all in Henry's time,
profusely used in Elizabeth's. With-
out carrying the point too far it
seems definitive of the two ages.
This much carries one only to the
beginning of the actual design. It
must be conceived as a unit with
careful relation between its parts.
There must be emphasis, climax, and
consideration of character relation-
ships. Almost all the characters in
the play are nobles and from the
point of strict logic all but the royal-
ty would be equallyaelaborate.
Norfolk, in almost the opening lines
of the play in describing the meet-
ing on the Field of the Cloth of Gold,
says:
"Today the French,
All cliquent, all in gold, like
heathen gods,
Shown down the British, and
tomorrow, they
Made Britain India: every man
that stood
Show'd like a mine."
If this were attempted it would be
destracting rather than effective. The
most important characters must be
emphasized in color and design. The
color relation is especially valuable
in establishing the relationship of
characters to each other and to the
whole. Although color is very im-
portant psychologically, experiments
