Government
Behind The Plow.. ..
ONE ARE THOSE halcyon days
when a man merely rode out to
the broad fields of the West and planted his
stakes, exercising a free choice of lands. In-
stead a man and his family now live on a farm
from which moving is an unpredictable risk.
The fear of insecurity faces the agricutural p'tp-
ulation even while it is enjoying prosperity.
Today farmers are confronted with droughts
and dust storms that sear the fields to a state
in which they become miserably unproductive.
It is only lately that the farmer has been able
to climb out of the deep rut of economic failure.
But he has a long way to go before he can ever
realize a high point of economic stability. At
the moment he can begin to move toward that
stability in an economy of abundance.
Plans are now being advanced to aid the
farmer and consequently the whole mass of
Americans. Foremost on the list is a bill prvid-
ing for crop insurance. Second and of equal
importance is the bill for the alleviation of the
plight of the Southern tenant farmer and share-
jropper.
In addition to these two there have also been
proposed plans for extensive programs of soil
conservation and erosion control to increase the
productivity of the land.
Crop insurance is not a new or radical idea.
This time it is a plan which finds a Kansas
senator making eloquent defenses for it. The
first private attempts at the idea included price
insurance. They failed.
Now it is planned to have the government
administer an organization which will insure
the yield of crops. In a similar manner our
bank deposits have been insured by the gov-
ernment; also loans for repairing and construct-
ing homes.
Combined with insurance will be the ever
normal granary, a plan dependent on the faith-

ful cooperation of large numbers of farmers.
This is a system in which the cooperating farm-
ers will make payments on their insurance with
surpluses of their crops in years when there
are no foreign demands. In a poorly productive
year, when the yield is below a predetermined
normal, indemnification will be made in cash or
in kind..
The administration of the plan will serve as
a new and invaluable aid in price stabilization.
On the other hand the government will also have
to devise means for production control to avert
large crops from piling up in storage. Starting
out with the 1938 wheat crop the plan should
thereafter advance to a place where it will be
an accepted procedure in agriculture.
Dilapidated shacks for homes, life in general
on the barest subsistence level, high percentages
of illiteracy among the other ills of society are
the signs by which tenant farming and share-
croning come to be known. The well-wnedn

ished holdings, tilled by illiterate, often extreme-
ly unhealthy families. The advantages from col-
lective farming should add up to broader com-
munity liVes, less illiteracy, improved health con-
ditions and efficient operation of soil.

By A Southern NVegro
To the Editor:
I hope you will find space to print my letter,
under the caption: "Negroes: By a Southern
Negro."
I venture the opinion that W.B.O., who wrote
anent the Northwestern "Jim Crow" case, knows
practically nothing about the "Negro Problem,"
except his own prejudiced and apparently fear-
ridden reactions. Since he is convinced that
"there must be certain restrictions on the Negro,"
it seems clear that he, and others like him, know
themselves well enough to believe that they have
something to fear. In. my humble opinion, a
truly superior person, regardless of his race or
color, does not waste his time, nor sacrifice his
peace of mind in dodging phantoms. The in-
ference here should be clear, even to W.B.O.
Negroes in the South do not go to any great
lengths to let many white people know exactly
what they think about some of the places in
which they live and find their amusement. In
some pedple, Negroes and others, what might be
erroneously interpreted as contentment with
a sad lot is merely the outward expression of
the process of making the best of a bad situa-
tidn until some way out of the dilemma appears.
As for being satisfied to stay in one's place(!!),
at least there are those of us (and we are
many more than "two or three exceptions") who
have enough discretion-a mild word-not to
start tilting at wind-mills; and this is more
than I can say for any person who would raise
this particular issue on the campus of the Uni-
versity of Michigan where, to the best of my
knowledge, we have had no such unfortunate
incident as the one at Northwestern.
A question to W.B.O.: If all concerned are
satisfied with the situation in the South, what
is the raison d' etre of the Southern Inter-
racial Commission, and what about the fine
type of public opinion created by that group of
southern white women who, some months back,
organized to champion, not "Negro Rights," but
the Rights of Man?
Wm. A. Griffey.
Include Religion
To the Editor:
Relating to your very timely editorial upon
things to come in a recent number of The Daily
Rabbi Heller makes a very proper suggestion.
This is- to endorse the suggestion made by
Dr. Heller and to ask that religious phase of life
be included with the others.
With sincere appreciation of The Daily and
also approval of the idea of the independents
being organized through the Union.

Contemporary
'Significant,' Says WJ1ltter
By PROF. ERIGH A. WALTERt
(Of the English Department)
THE THIRD ISSUE of CONTEMPORARY
Which appears today is the most significant
not only of this year's volume but probably of
the three volumes that have been published.
The issue offers a well balanced variety of poems,
essays, stories and reviews, but its exceptional
value for this campus, for students and faculty
alike, is Peter Macklin's Preface to a Program.
Mr. Macklin enamines the Liberal Arts Col-
lege and decides that reform is imperative. His
review of the philosophy which now motivates

students and faculty in their choice of subjects
and their methods of study is no merely super-
ficial one. It is a thorough-going review. It
digs deep, to the roots of the problem. Mr.
Macklin believes that the kind of education we
get depends upon our philosophy of life. As
long as we kowtow merely to the philosophy of
"getting on" in the world and call such activity
"progress," we shall continue to be bound by
the narrowness of the pragmatic view. In con-
tradistinction to this prevailing pragmatism is
posited the humanistic view. "The primacy of
humanistic training cannot be intelligently dis-
puted, for the kind of teachers, statesmen, doc-
tors, engineers we have, the uses they make
of their specialized knowledge, depends on the
kind of men and women they are, which, in
turn, is determined by the values they have.
In the hands of these men and women rests the
future of our society and the values which it
will embody." In our literary colleges the cards
are stacked against the student because "we
reverse the process of all real education." The
student is spoon-fed, the teachers- supply him
with all the answers instead of presenting him
with the materials and forcing him to work
out the problems and to arrive at independent
conclusions. The student ever negates his own
personality. "A good education should help him
to acquire a good philosophy and a good per-
sonality." Mr. Macklin arfives at these conclu-
sions by carefully examining the elective system,
the "unanalytical comprehensive historical sur-
vey" courses, "the genetic and historical ap-
proach" to the study of literature and the fine,
arts

BENEATH ****
** IT ALL
mt --°-By lBonth Wiliamns-
JUDGING by the number of recalcitrants who
made the 11 o'clock Easter service Sunday,
coupled with the tales of what happened Satur-
day night, I predict a busy time for the Dis-
ciplinary Committee this week ...
Also over the week-end occured a marriage of
note when Fred Stiles, Deke and track star, up
and married Marya Hoffman in a surprise elope-
ment. Both are plenty swell and deserve the
best.
The morning mail brought a half dozen let-
ters in regards to the plea of K.C.M. that he be
enabled to meet a comely lass who haunts him in
Angell Hall. Despite the fact that I believe the
whole thing to be an atrocious publicity stunt,
I submit excerpts from two of them.
Dear Bonth:
Up to now I have been, sadly, I confess,
an egotist, a cad, a bounder, and a self-
seeker. Now by the grace of K.C.M.'s letter
published in your column, I have discoveved
a means to enter into the service of my fel-
low men ...
To b-e specific, my extra-curricular pro-
clivities have been devoted thus far to in-
troducing myself to winsome, chic, and cute
young lasses who went their blithe and in-
nocent way to Angell Hall Study Hall-..
Why not let K.C.M. get in touch with me?
If the lady is not an acquaintance of mine
already, I will strike up a fast friendship
and arrange to have K.C.M. meet her. Of
the 34 girls on campus with whom I have a
bowing acquaintance, 33 I have met by in-
troducing myself in the library .. .
My success may be easily explained,
though not with injury to my sense of
modesty. If the facts must be known I am:
(1) strikingly handsome, (2) of superior in-
telligene, (3) possessed of a magnetic per-
sonality, and (4) exceedingly wise to the
ways of a maid with a man ...
Yours sincerely,
MARTIN KALISH.
I like you because you're so frank about your-
self, Martin. You should go a long way.
DEAR BONTH:
I want to pass along a bit of advice to the
desperate fellow who, in Friday's column, signed
himself "K.C.M."-the boy who solicited youi
help on the problem of how to meet a girl.
Every day, K.C.M. sees this unknown young
lady-dark hair and dark eyes . . . so slight,
so delicate . . . in Angell Hall study hall, and
wants to find out her name.
I could help K.C.M. His situation brings out
my deepestusympathies. After all. Spring has
moved in. But I hesitate. For I had just such
an experience myself last week.
Several times before I had noticed her about
the campus-she's the sort you can't help notice.
She had dark eyes, dark hair, and I'll swear it
-the most beautiful lips in all Christendom.
And she, too, was all life.
And then, for three consecutive days I found
her sitting near me in the Main Library study
room. She smiled the second time, and the
third time she borrowed some note paper.
The fourth day I wore my newest cravat and
hoped she would be there again. She was. When
she got up to leave, I accompanied her, opened
the door for her, I walked downstairs with her,
making small talk.
After a few remarks she brought forth some
small white pasteboards, and when the front
doors of the Library were reached, she was
pocketing my 40 cents, and I was holding a
ticket to the Michigan Boxing Show.
Her sorority was in a race for some sort of
cup, she said, and then she said, "Good-bye
and thanks a lot-" very brightly, and turned
to meet a big bruiser of a fellow lounging against
the doors.
I could suggest several ways for K.C.M. to
meet his young lady, who is "superb," but as I
said, I hesitate.
Cordially,

--J.A.B.
be read by every student who takes his univer-
sity education seriously. I hope that CON-
TEMPORARY may publish a series of reactions
to it in its next issue.
gr. Shulman's brief essay on The Extra Cur-
riculum may be considered a corollary to Mr.
Macklin's long discussion. Both writers recog-
nize the same educational values.
The prize-winning material from the Fresh-
man Hopwood Contest adds its typical variety
to CONTEMPORARY. This material brings a
balance to the pages of the magazine which
is markedly absent when only seniors and
graduate students contribute. Mr. Green's pic-
tures of his father and of his father's Canadian
farm show a remarkable power to select the
telling details and to present them naturally. Mr.
Swados has the ability to pack much into a
small compass. Of the two poems by Mr. Con-
way the first is an exercise in verse, the second
is a significant experience, poetically expressed.
Of the other poems in this issue, Mr. Bacon's
has a clarity and a finish which the others lack.
The Penny tries to say less than the other three
but it says it completely.
In the humorous short story, Almost the End
of the World, Mr. McKelvey manages two dif-
ficult things with success, he writes about chil-
dren and develops his. story through conversa-
tion. The book reviews in this issue are par-
ticularly thorough-going. Mr. Greenberg charges
John Strachey with verbosity; Mr. Britton pre-
sents G. K. Chesterton's ideas without bias; Mr.

A REVIEW
A TRULY great artist sang in Hill
Auditorium last evening. Marian
Anderson, contralto, brought this
year's Choral Union series to a glor-
ious conclusion before an overflow-
ing and enthusiastic audience. Her
program, excellently chosen and con-
structed, consisted of a Handel group
of three songs and an aria, five Schu-
bert songs, a Verdi aria, four Finnish
songs, and four Negro spirituals. Six
encores, in all, were accorded, and
the accompanist was Kosti Vehanen.
Miss Anderson's artistry is amaz-!
ing in its completeness and simplicity.
First of all, she possesses a gorgeous
vocal instrument, rich and vibrant in
quality, capable of great variety in
color, and nuance, full of emotional
intensity. Of remarkable consistency
of quality and coloring, her compass
last night reached for two ocataves
and a fifth, and seemingly could have
extended easily higher had the need
presented itself. . It is a voice of great?
power, yet completely and graceuilly
controlled, equal at once to the
breadth and sostenuto of the Handel
songs and to the coloratura passages
of Sibeluis' Die Libelle. The artists'
intonation was as impeccable as could
be expected of a human singer, her
