which would represent more than a purely mi-
itary point of view, ought as soon as possible be
appointed in order that this state of over-arma-
ment, which we believe to be destructive to the,
peace of the world, be reduced to limits safer
to the world and adequately safe for ourselves.
From time to time we have published the tes-
timony of competent economists on the sub-.
ject of the reciprocal trade agreements. Almost
unanimously they have supported Secretary Hull
in his efforts to further sound trade relations.
For the last fifteen years economic nationalism
has been on the ascendant; tariffs and restric-
tions of various kinds have once again begun
the trend of imperialism and conquest which
repeats the story of the last war. The most
hopeful sign in the field of foreign trade is the
painstaking work of Cordell Hull in building uC
a structure of sound international trade relations
through reciprocal agreements.
The third point in this petition is not with-
out dispute in some quarters. Advocates of col-
lective security in its most extreme forms believe
that it may be necessary on the part of the
United States to enter a European conflict on
the theory that an incipient major struggle may
be nipped in the bud. Such a policy has properly
been referred to as "committing suicide from fear
of death," and it seems more important to the
future of democracy that this country stay out
of war now, than that we try to suppress by force
the fascist elements in Europe today. For these
reasons, we urge your signature on the three
petitions.

M OST OF US have wondered, at
some time or other, whether stu-
dent peace demonstrations, such as we are to have
this morning, are anything more than a tonic
and a free hour. Can these youths after all
effectively prevent .a war caused by forces deeply
rooted in our social and economic system?
The answer is, as Senator Nye has said, that
the student peace movement represents one
of the strongest forces for peace in the world
today. War will not be prevented simply be-
cause you and your roommate attend the peace
demonstration this morning, but your presence
there, along with perhaps a million other youths
throughout the country, demonstrates to the
world that there is a firm bloc of citizens of
the coming generation who have the will to
peace. This will to peace will express itself
in terms of legislation, of enlightened foreign
policy, sounder trade relations. Student dem-
onstrations in themselves will not achieve a
warless world, but evidence that an enlightened
bloc of voters will follow through legislative
mazes the fortunes of measures calculated to
reduce the probabilities of war will have a visible
effect on public officials and national policies in
the direction of peace.
Hence, even leaving aside the psychological
effect upon the people themselves who demon-
strate, we believe that the usefulness of the
demonstration this morning ought to be suffi-
ciently evident to every thinking student.
Attendance at the demonstration represents
a very minimum of effort towards peace. Con-
sidering that it is this generation whose lives
are at stake, the devotion of one hour this morn-
ing seems to be a small enough investment on
their part.
Therefore we urge you in the strongest terms:
Atttend the Peace Demonstration.

To the Editor:
Poor, deluded creatures that we are! We, who
had thought that one of the things our educa-
tion had taught us was that the printed word
isn't necessarily true, suddenly discover that, in
spite of our purely democratic tendencies, we
have been believing in a Bolshevik myth. Oh!
Yes!-we have learned that when Hitler says he
wants peace, or when Hearst says that Roose-
velt is plotting with the Communists . . . we must
be a bit hesitant about accepting such statements
at their face value.
But all these years, we have been believing
all those pretty phrases about freedom of speech
and press, found in the Constitution. Or per-
haps, we have been wrong from the beginning.
Perhaps the Ann Arbor police force has been
secretly informed that the Supreme Court is
about to declare the Bill of Rights unconstitu-
tional. If so, why haven't the newspapers in-
formed us of the fact? But there, I had almost
forgotten that gathering news is a criminal of-
fense. Or is it using "profane" language that is
illegal?
There seems to be a slight misunderstanding
concerning the terms: "Profane language" and
"disorderly language." For, if it is always
true that the use of certain specified words
constitute the aforementioned "crimes," the lan-
guage used by a prosperous book-store owner,
and the policeman who made the arrests of
April 8th, would indicate that these "pillars of
our community" are hardened and habitual
criminals. -R.S. '37.

To the Editor:
Thersites has his blood up again! He hasn't
been in print since his tussle with the Sociology
Department, but now he is up in arms! In the
last issue of The Daily which he saw before leav-
ing for a happier clime, there was a great
to-do about this picketing affair. The Daily
reported that:
. . one of the more prominent bookstore
owners, in the presence of ladies, referred
to one picketer on the steps of the Recrea-
tion center as a "bastard." He has not yet
been arrested on a disorderly conduct
charge .. .
He can't get away with that. I don't mind
the presence of ladies, since I am a great one
for the single standard, but when Thersites sees
the constitutional right of freedom from libel
being invaded with the approval of the local con-
stabulary, he does mind. Thersites has been
overcharged for second-hand books for years,
uncomplainingly. But when the book people go
sticking their noses into other people's bus-
inesses, and calling folks uncomplimentary
names in the bargain, he revolts. In fact
Thersites demands the following:
1. The immediate establishment of a co-
operativp bookstore.
2. The immediate publication, if possible, of
the name of the anti-labor book-merchant, so
that Thersites can call upon the world for a
boycott *of that gentleman's business or racket.

The Sit-Down And Fraternization
To the Editor:
The student of social movements learns to
expect that the real significance of such move-.
ments often turns out to be quite other than
that apparent to the people directly and indi-
rectly affected by them at the time. May I say
a few things about what seems to me to be
perhaps the most important social consequence
of the sit-down strike movement--something
that seems to have escaped the attention not only
of the general public and the newspapers, but
also of all the writers of articles on the subject
whose publications I have seen.
The thing that caught and held my atten-
tion as I observed and mingled among the
strikers in Flint and Detroit was the spirit of
comradeship among them. They were like a big
and well-ordered family, the members under-

BENEATH ****
#*###+ IT ALL
---By Bonth Wiliams;;
ARGOYLE, Gargoyle, who's got the Gar-
goyle!
One thousand, nine hundred and ninety seven
copies of this month's Tilles-Barnes copyrighted
joke book, proclaimed as the biggest and best,
too much to give away for a dime, will not be
sold on the Campus this morning unless the
culprit(s) who pilfered them from a locked room
in the Publications Building relent(s) and sur-
render(s) his booty before 8 a.m.
Only three copies of the magazine are known
to be in existence. One is in the hands of Editor
Tilles, who says he's not a bit worried, one is
in the hands of Detective Gene Gehringer, local
police sleuth who retired from the case after
opining that it was an inside job, and one I was
given 'to review Tuesday is locked safely away
as my future contribution to the relic depart-
ment of the University Museum.
Tilles and Barnes, though both professing no
concern whatsoever, wandered nervously about
questioning all suspects after Detective Smith
had broken another window in the burglarized
room and cut his thumb in an attempt to get
to the bottom of the whole business.
Smith was very decent about the whole thing,
but rightfully maintained that the 'snatch' was
more in the, nature of a prank than of a theft
and agreed with Tilles that it would be better
for the police to drop out of the case.
High University officials sat back and chuckled
with mirth when they learned of the crime of
the century, recalling other days when student
life was continually punctuated with the strange
removal of the President's front steps, or the
wrecking of an unpopular merchant's estab-
lishment.
Theories, accusations and counter-charges
filled the Publications Building from early morn-
ing until well into the evening. The Great Steal-
ing of the Gargoyle was the dinner table topic
last night as the whole campus, with its togue
in its cheek, offered a thousand different solu-
tions. Detroit and Chicago papers carried the
story of The Joke on the Humorists, and spec-
ulations were rife.
One theory holds that Fred Warner Neal
made off with the books to prevent the distribu-
tion of a magazine in which he was Preposterous
Person Number 41.
Another indicts the Michigan Daily sports
staff with specific charges leveled at your col-
umnist.
A third solution makes the whole thing a
publicity stunt concocted by Tilles and Barnes
to sell a magazine at more than double is usual
price. Others charge the deed to the Michigras
committee and some to outsiders.
Barnes and Tilles angrily deny theory num-
ber three, and the fact that they both stand to
lose a considerable bonus if the issue has been
destroyed, coupled with the looks of pure anxiety
on their faces, makes the publicity solution
seem not too probable.
Barnes, by calling in the police, has probably
so frightened the perpetrators that they may
in desperation have dumped the whole business
into the Huron river.
Personally I think the Gargs will be returned
safely in time. Nobody wants them for anything
and their value is sufficient to command a good
deal of respect.

STAN COX, S.A.E. boxer, is probably the num-
ber one bicycler in these parts. Stan cycled
some 500 miles through Kentucky during spring
vacation and last summer conducted a pedal-
ing tour through the British Isles with 58 teen
age charges under his control.
Distance means nothing to Stan. He can
average 125 miles a day without any trouble
at all, but pooh-poohs his own stamina with the
remark that real Britishers can make 250 miles a
day if they really have to.
Stan has two steeds which he rides on his ex-
cursions about the country. One, a German bike
with a gear shift, its own electric generator, and
back and front lights, weighs only 26 pounds

and cost $18.
The other is an English make with virtually
the same equipment. It retailed for $22.50 but
weighs only 18 pounds.
I was seeing here the spirit of democracy among
great masses of American workers. All the dif-
ferences of race, religion, and other ordinarily
divisive influences were forgotten in a new spirit
of brotherhood. And the almost daily news re-
ports of unorganized, "wild-cat" sit-downs in
factories because a fellow-worker has been fired.
or demoted for unjust cause, while sometimes it
is doubtless ill-advised, certainly lends strength
to the impressionthat a new sense of responsi-
bility for each other is growing among the Amer-
ican proletariat. After all these strikes are
over, it should remain as a social psychological
foundation for more effective democratic action
in the future.
If the thing I speak of really is coming into
existence among people, it is, I think, cause for
rejoicing on the part of every man and woman
desiring the growth of civic responsibility, mu-
tual responsibility, mutual understanding among1
the innumerable social, racial, political and re-
ligious groups of this heterogeneous American
people. Had this social spirit been present in
Detroit, for example, during the last seven years,
there could not, I think, have developed such a
vigilante monstrosity as the Black Legion. I be-
lieve that it is only through the increase of this
spirit that we can expect a decrease in delin-
quency and crime and the tendency to ignore the
rules of safe automobile driving, for example,
and, on the other hand, an increase in coopera-
tion in social organization.
By and large, the people who are most bitterly

as existing in a transcendental and
abstract world. To say it does is to
admit that beauty is incommunicable
and unrelated to the concrete world,
and the human mind unable to reach
it. Hence, when I criticize an Ab-
stractionist painting, I try to judge
it in the purely formal sense in which
it was intended, so far as that is pos-
sible, but I do not sympathize, for I
can never condone its failure to be
anything more. I seek in art a hu-
man thing.
ART MUST HAVE
SOCIAL COMPLEX.
For centuries the role of the artist
has been considered one of unique
and individualist self-expression. He
was not expected to know anything
about the forces of the wicked world
-and seldom did. It is that notion
of remoteness from the social whole
that has led to abstract Expression-
ism. But today, in a highly coordi-
nated society, where it becomes evi-
dent as never before that art cannot
exist independent of the social com-
plex, the proletarians point the way
to a more worthy and secure ideal-
social integration, a cooperative
world. They attempt to express
something of what Thomas Mann
calls "the unity of the human prob-
lem," the complex relationship of
the individual to the whole of man,
of one personality to another. And
that is the keynote of a new age of
unity now being born.
Waldo Frank has called art a
means for man to express "his or-
ganic connection with life." He adds
that "Art brings to human lives the
experience of freedom." The goddess
of freedom herself takes new shapes
and assumes new disguises in every
age as she passes through. Once
freedom meant individualism,, and
I the Giottos and Michaelangelos,
seeking her, created a great art. To-
day it means a collective order, and
the Riveras and Groppers and How-
ard Cooks are creating another. Uni-
versal and eternal? We need not
worry about that. Suffering, injus-
tice and struggle have always been
universal. They vary only in the new
forms they assume in every age. If
an artisthas discoveredrand ex-
pressed beauty in his world, if he
has captured something of the spirit
of his age, posterity will see and
understand, and he too shall be eter-
nal.

C Chairman, with four other members
to be appointed by the President for
staggered terms of four years each,
3.) That a report of its activities
be presented annually to the Univer-
sity Council.
Also the University Council gave
consideration to the report of ,the
Special Committee on Faculty Par-
ticipation of which Professor Daw-
son was Chairman. The following
attitudes were approved:
(1.) To the suggestion of the
Dawson Committee "that the stand-
ing committees of the Council be
abolished," the Council does not con-
cuy. It believes that no gain is to be
obtained through such action and
that the standing committees should
be continued in their present form.
(2.) To the Dawson recommenda-
tion that "before any matter be re-
ferred to a committee of the Coun-
cil an opportunity should be given for
discussion . . . the Council com-
m'ents that discussion from the floor
has always been encouraged and
hopes that in the future the mem-
bers will express themselves freely
upon the reports and other business
brought to the Council.
(3.) With the proposal that the
"continuing committees reporting to
the Council undertake to provide
more than a historical record ..." the
Council is in entire agreement and1
recommends that all advisory boards
and committees be guided by this
suggestion in their annual reports.
(4.) The- Council agrees that "a
complete agenda should be published
in the Daily Official Bulletin ... -
(5.) With respect to the recom-
mendation that "after each meeting
of the Council a brief statement of
the important actions taken should
be communicated . . . ," the Council
instructed the Secretary to convey to
the Deans the desirability of appoint-
ing some member of their respective
faculties to make a report at the
faculty meetings of the actions of the
University Council.
(6.) The Council agrees that "the
roll call should be abolished."
(7.) To the last proposal, "with a
view to making the Council a more
effective agency for the discussion of
;eneral matters of University policy,
the Council should provide records
that communications from members
of the Faculty have been encouraged
and opportunity has always been
given for their personal presentation
before the standing committees of
the Council or the Council itself. It

Propaganda
-Use In Art Defended-
By HARRY BETHKE
I have recently been asked why I.
as a critic, show such evident favor-
itism toward proletarian propaganda
art. The answer is. because prole-
tarian art, whether it is propaganda
or not, is the only movement of any
force or vitality in the contemporary
scene, the only movement which
creates beauty out of today's ma-
terials and captures something of
the spirit of our mechanistic age, the
only movement which understands
and penetrates the brawling forces
of today and holds forth promise of a
cultural reawakening for tomorrow.
Personally, I see no objection to
propaganda of any kind in art. Great
painters have been propagandists in
the past and great artists will con-
tinue to be propagandists in the fu-
ture. What I am interested in is the
eternal and inviolate bond between
art and the human problem. Art
can never be a wholly significant
force in the lives of men-for which
beauty itself exists-unless it is will-
ing to cope with man and the forces
operating within man, wails of aes-
thetes to the contrary notwithstand-
ing.
CULTURE MUST WORK
FOR A NEW WORLD
Nietzsche once divided aesthetic
trends into two categories, the Ap-
polonian and the Dionysian. In the
Appolonian, the artist, disillusioned
and defeated by the. conflicts of real
life, avoids the human problem and
retreats into a world of dreams and
escape. There he seeks solace in an
isolated haven of formal and ab-
stract beauty of his own creation. The
various "Modern" movements fall
into that class. But in the Dionysian
the artist goes forth in courage to
meet the conflicts of life, to under-
stand and affirm life itself, and there-
by to create beauty out of its hap-
penstances and events. In times like
these, when the western world blindly
gropes its way through the most
shaking transitions it has ever known,
there is little room for romantic
dreams. Life penetrates them, crowds
them out. Today all the forces of
culture and creation must bend
themselves toward the achievement
of a new world.
Art is useless, beauty itself is frus-
trate except as it can become a co-
herent and constructive force in the

sURING the last several days, we
I)have discussed two of the subjects
of the petitions being circulated by the Peace
Council on campus today: the Nye-Kvale Bill
for the abolition of compulsory military train-
ing i schools and colleges, and the Hill-Shep-
pard Bill for the conscription of labor and cap-
ital'in the event of war.
The third petition may be separated into three
parts:
(1.) We disapprove of military and naval ex-
penditures in excess of the requirements of
national defense and we recommend the ap-
pointment of a joint civilian and military com-
mittee to determine the needs of national de-
fense.'
(2.) We approve the extension of the Recip-
rocal Trade Agreements Act, as a means of fur-
thering international amity through the estab-
lishment of sound trade relations.
(3.) We disapprove of any participation by
the United States in any extra-territorial con-
flict.
In the course of the recent presidential cam-

recommends however, that at the ing tonight at 7:30 p.m. Room 1042
