HE TENOR of correspondence
which has appeared in these col-
umns, and the general character of student ac-
tivities during the year indicate, it seems to us,
that there is growing on this campus a substan-
tial progressive movement.
This is not an isolated phenomenon. Other
universities have witnessed, and sometimes en-
couraged, the growth of a lively student interest
in social issues. Michigan has been slow in de-
veloping such interests, because, first of allY of
the character of the people from whom the stu-
dent body is largely drawn, and second, because
it is a state university,
The gentle robe of apathetic unconsciousness
in which the campus seemed to be wrapped was
pitiful to behold. If these blissful people were
the educated among us, Heaven help democracy.
But now, unless we mistake the signs, the cam-
pus stirs with some of the currents which are
altering the landscape. We are close to an in-
dustrial center of the country, and we cannot ig-
nore the vitality of a newly-awakened labor
movement. We have passed through a critical
depression and a decisive election in which the
fundamentals of our social and economic sys-
tem.were called into question. We are now wit-
nessing legislation which revolutionizes the re-
lationship of a manager and his employes.
There is apparent in some journals evidence of
an inchoate, but potentially powerful, progres-
sive movement. It speaks the American idiom.
It prognosticates a genuine farmer-labor party,
but in its present form it worships at the altar of
Franklin D.
One reason why the campus does not respond
more fully to this movement which has been
more in evidence at other colleges is that we,
students and faculty alike, suffer from a pathetic
lack of liberal leadership. If the peace demon-
stration went-as one correspondent magnilo-

quently described it-phffft, it was because the
Peace Council lacked strong and purposeful lead-
ership. If the semi-radical organizations on
campus have failed to gain for themselves a
sympathetic hearing, it is because wisdom has
not been a characteristic of their tactics.
But there is, in the peace group, in certain.
church groups, in the student labor movement,,
in going cooperative enterprises, in the student
leftists, the supporters of the Spring Parley, the
Friends of Spanish Democracy, the Teachers
Union-there is in all of these a common spirit
of investigation and action which needs to be
shaped into a coherent faculty and student pro-
gressive movement. The organization which this
movement ought to take should be such that it
can, without being doctrinaire, hold public dis-
cussions, debates, arguments-on the Supreme
Court proposal, on sit-down strikes, on neutral-
ity, Spain, child labor, art both proletarian and
otherwise-and it ought to be such that, after
discussion, it can act--in cases of infringement
of civil liberties, discrimination, or susnension of

Peace ForUs All
To The Editor:
B. W.'s letter in Saturday's Daily pointed out
some salient facts as to the failure of peace
meetings, such as the one of April 22, to prepare
the students of the universities for action in the
teeth of opposition. That a stronger set of reso-
lutions should have been adopted seems to be
fairly evident. That only a thousand persons
from an educational institution such as the Uni-
versity of Michigan would meet together for a
project so vital to -the future of their own lives
as a Peace Strike is something that the thinking
person must feel heartsick about.
And yet the reason for the sad fact that a
Michigras parade can attract as many or mor@
people than a Peace Strike lies not only in the
fact that students are not prepared to fight for
their own welfare. "As the twig is bent so grows
the bough" and the men responsible for bending
the twig have failed us sadly. Where, O where
were the professors when the Carillon struck
eleven and the crowd gathered on the Mall? A
few were there in person, more, possibly, in spirit
but the great majority seemed then, before then,-
and still now, apathetic to the problem.
The men responsible for molding the youth of
the country have not accepted the responsibility
which is theirs by virtue of their intellectual
capacities and educational opportunities. The
appellation of "academic liberal" is not in the
best of repute in these days of immediate issues.
An "academic liberal" can serve his cause best
by fighting for the very ideals to which he 'is
committed. In wartime all the freedom of
inquiry to which the professor is traditionally
pledged, all the untrammeled quest for truth
which is the creed of the educator in a democ-
racy is drastically and suddenly cdrtailed. Class-
rooms become barracks and professors' rostrums
propaganda machines for the glorification of the
reversion to the Dark Ages.
The answer may be that the professor has
enough to do in teaching the subject at hand
without bothering to become an agitator. Yet,
when the War God starts his machine rolling,
the subject at hand will be forgotten soon enough
in the interests of the regimentation of mental
as well as physical faculties.
I submit that it is the duty of the leaders of
the students, the men from whom they receive
their ideas and whose words do much to shape
their course through life, to actively support
movements which aim to further civilization,
and to oppose any manifestation which will lead
to the curtailment of the individual rights which
are the fundamental principles of a democratic
and civilized government. Peace is not an issue
confi>ed to people in their teens or twenties. It
embraces us all and the leadership and active
backing should come from those most qualified
to lead, the members of the faculties of our
institutions of higher education. --R.J.F., '37
The Broken Record |
To the Editor:
In his speech here several months ago, Bruce
Bliven, editor of the New Republic, pointed out
that newspapers have two great sources of power
in influencing the public mind: what they print,
and what they . . . don't piint. The policy of
the Ann Arbor News with reference to the re-
cent labor dispute in which seven were arrested
proves Bliven's point conclusively.
Taking the latter point first, what they didn't
print. The police couldn't press charges against
the defendants for speking without a permit
from the mayor because, of all things, the ordi-
nance couldn't be found in the statute books!
Consequently we find several of the defendants
charged with "loitering." If convictions are
obtained on such charges, the possibilities for the

forces of "law and order" are limitless. For in-
stance: a boy is seen talking earnestly to a girl
at a street corner. A policeman approaches.
"Here, you two, what are you doing?"
"Why, we're just making a date for Saturday
"Well, you look like you're loitering to me.
You'll have to come along to the station."
The second point, what they did print. In the
city edition of the Ann Arbor News of Friday,
April 9, appeared a statement to the effect that
picket line in front of the Ann Arbor Recreation
Hall had sung the Communist Internationale.
This was a brilliant piece of musical criticism.
The Star Spangled Banner sounds nothing at all
like the Internationale, nor does My Country
'Tis of Thee, nor Onward Christian Soldiers, nor
Solidarity Forever. At no time during the
entire evening was the Internationale sung. The
News changed the article in its county edition,
but there was no mention of correction or apol-
ogy in city editions. But the damage was al-
ready done, however. The story grew by word
of mouth until one of the defendants was de-I
scribed as a "red agitator" who was taken to
jail with his pockets bulging with bombs, and
what is even worse, Communist literature. Enter
the red herring. This malicious rumor caused
the defendant to be suspended from his position
as Sunday school teacher. Incidentally, this
same defendant has been charged with using
profane language. The police didn't realize
when they hazarded this charge that they were
trying to make it stick against a Sunday school
teacher. Ridiculous, isn't it? It's about as fan-
tastic as accusing the Ann Arbor police of re-
spect for the Constitution. -M.L., '38.

The blood hounds of the Ann Arbor detective
bureau maintained that it was an inside job,
that it had been done with a key, and' that
the window was broken only to make the
thing appear as an outside job.
The sleuths further opined after a thor-
ough investigation during which they broke
another window with a hammer, that the
window had been broken from the inside,
and that the lawn outside the window failed
to show sufficient signs of having been tram-

was broken from the OUTSIDE with a large

Business Manager Barnes with his usual
astuteness called the police who apparently
have not l±i°en keeping up with their corre-
spondence school training. Editor Tilles took
the affair less seriously and set out to do
some sleuthing on his ow'n hook. Barnes
continued to storm and threaten, but did
nothing, saying that nobody would dare keep
his magazines past the scheduled sales time
of 7:45 Thursday morning.
When 7:45 and then 8 and then 8:30 came
and went, however, Barnes hardly able to
choke back the tears, admitted that he was
awfully mad, but didn't know what to -do.
Meanwhile Tilles, following up the thou-
sandth clue, traced a phone call from one of
the perpetrators. He could not prove his
suspicions, but the felons, not waiting any-
one to sustain a financial loss and believing
that Tilles should be rewarded for his ability
to keep his temper, swore both the editor and
his companion to an oath of secrecy and
revealed the hiding place of the loot.
The perpetrators helped Gil load the

certain rights to Negroes. Incidently,
Eugene Talmadge, as Governor, ve-
toed the Georgia old-age pension bill
on the strength of the fact that ad-
vantages .would accrue to the Negro,
stating that if the bill were passed
there would not be a "hoehand left
in Georgia."
Surely no student of the Univer-
sity of Michigan would go as far as'
Talmadge to place the Negro prob-
lem solely in the labor category. But,
on examination, Mr. Bentley has in-
sisted that "letdowns of racial bar-
riers" are capitalized upon by Ne-
groes to the disadvantage of their
"benefactors" or employers. It is re-
markable that he referred to the edu-
cational issue at all.
Hampton, Fisk, and Tuskegee are
good schools for Negroes, true enough..
However, they are not tax-supported.
Hence, Mr. Bentley does not prove
his point. Another point that A. M.
Bentley should bear in mind is that
