Where Goes,
The Church..*.
oeditorial entitled "Institutional
Religion and Democratic Society," we discussed
the historic alignment of the church with con-
servative politics, and observed that unless it
is willing to become a more democratic institu-
tion to the end of promoting advanced demo-
cratic ideals, its social force will be negligible.
Since that time, representatives of the church,
although in certain instances still strongly re-
actionary, have demonstrated in many others
that the church can function in the forefront
of the progressive movement in America.
These certain instances of continued reaction
include such actions as the speech by George F.
Denniston, executive director of the Catholi
Youth Organization, Archdiocese of New York,
on Saturday before the United Christian Youth
Conference. Mr. Denniton attacked the college
peace day demonstrations, and warned his youth-
ful hearers against the "red-colored serum" of
the "poisonous snake," communism. "We find
the communist striking in the dark, disguised
as a liberal, at times'even a defender of social
justice," he said.
Another instance is that described in the
Christian Century as follows:
"Evidently the success of the Romian Catholic
Church in defeating the Child Labor Amendment
has impressed the politicians with the value of
lining up with it on its anti-red crusade. Al
Smith and Matthew Woll, vice-.president of the
A. F. of L., enlisted at a meeting of about 4,000
in the Hippodrome last week. The meeting,
prompted in the first place by Fathgr Curran of
the Catholic Truth Society and endorsed by Car-
-:dinal Hayes, Bishop Molloy of Brooklyn and
Archbishop Curley of Baltimore, secured the
support of the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of
Long Island, Dr. Sti"es, and Rabbi Landman of
Brooklyn. Bishop Manning sent a letter attack-
ing communism. Mr. Smith found reason for
solemn warning in the fact that in Russia a night
shirt costs two-thirds of a month's salary. He
made the point that this country, on the other

hand, offers opportunity for all and stamps on
its money 'In God We Trust.' "
Elsewhere in the Christian Century in this fur-
ther report of the meeting:
"At a great mass meeting at the Hippodrome,
in New York,;under the auspices of the American
Association Against Communism and the Inter-
national Truth Society (both Roman Catholic
organizations), Bherough President George U.
Harvey evoked great applause by stating ,that if
he cbontrolled the police he would 'rid the city of
communists in two weeks with the aid of a
liberal supply of rubber hose.' Father Curran,
the founder of both organizations, had a still
brighter idea. He would beat the communists by
peaceful measures if possible but-'if they want
it the way it is in Spain, we'll let them have it.'
And they say that fascism is. not a real canger!"

ful indication. Though cognizant of flaws in the
Child Labor legislation, he urges its passage, with
certain modifications, as the only way to elimi-
nate child labor. He adopts what seems to most
of us to be a sensible attitude toward what his
colleagues call the "red-serum of communism,"
when he says: "The only way to stem the tide
of communism in America is by adopting liberal
A second instance of the functioning of a
churchman in the liberal movement is Dr. Ed-
ward Blakeman. As religious counsellor to stu-
dents, Dr. Blakeman has been of invaluable aid
to the peace movement, the Spring Parley, and
the growth of the progressive group on the cam-
pus, and by so doing has convinced some of his
student associates that the worship of the Lord
is not inconsistent with straight thinking toward
amelioration of our earthly lot.
A third instance is the outstanding contribu-
tion to the cooperative movement, both student
and local, of Rev. H. L. Pickerell, of the Church
of Christ Disciples. It was with his invaluable
assistance that the cooperative rooming house
had its beginnings, and he is an officer in the
local cooperative enterprise.
A fourth instance is the work .of Rev. Harold
P. Marley. As head of the Washtenaw County
Conference for the Protection of Civil Rights,
as vigorous proponent of liberal legislation, vigi-
lant and untiring worker in defense of civil lib-
erties, and as organizer of the Unitarian's Liberal
Student Union, Reverend Marley has made the
Unitarian Church a center of activity in behalf of
true democracy. He has worked on the thesis
that there is a necessity for preserving human-
istic ideals from materialism on the one hand,
and from empty forms on the other. The neces-
sity of preserving these. humanistic ideals he con-
ceives to be the function of the church, and in
this case, the Unitarian Chuich.
It is evident, from the present contest for the
presidency of the American TWnitarian Associa-
tion, that there are many of his colleagues who
regard the church as a repository tradition, but
whether this indefatigable action on the pai't of
Reverend Marley be heresy or not, it has made
the Unitarian Church in Ann Arbor a genuine
force in our social thinking.
Needless to say, it would be a great loss to all
of us if this policy were to be changeu, and par-
ticularly to the church itself, for Reverend Mar-
ley has answered in the affirmative the question:
Can the church become a more democratic in-
stitution to the end of promoting advanced
democratic ideals?

BENEATH * ** *
'ROUBLE has broken out in the State Street
front again. The long-standing feud be-
tween the Beta's and the Chi Psi Lodgemen
flamed anew yesterday afternoon when old scars
were ripped open by a Beta sniper who used Rum,
giant Chi Psi mascot, as a target for his unusually
accurate BB gun.
The Chi Psi's retaliated when an advance
guard led by Bob Isgrig and Jack Otte gained
partial revenge by hurling a brick through th
window of the Beta dining room.
The Lodgemen, according to their own story,
were quietly pitching horseshoes in the backyard
when the pings of a BB gun began to plunk well
placed shots uncomfortably close to various un-
protected parts of their anatomy.
The enemy sniper then nailed Joe Bartley
with a well-directed shot and drew from the Chi
Psi's a volley of rocks and verbal warnings. Thus
incited, the gunman turned his attention to the
huge Great Dane which is the pride and joy of
all Lodge." brothers. Rum, hit several times, re-
tired from the scene of action but not so his
A sally was made into the Beta yard, the up-
shot of which was a brick heaved full through
a large window of Old Beta Theta Pi. The Chi
Psi's, in a statement to the press, charged the
Beta's with cruelty and the indiscriminate firing
of a dangerous weapon.
Upon being called on to explain themselves,
prominent zpembers of the Beta house waxed hot
with wrath, and hurled counter accusations
which bared the facts of a long inter-house feud.
The Chi Psi's, say the descendants of the
famous Tennesseean, started the whole thing be-
fore Christmas when they sallied forth one night
and ripped the railing off the Beta front porch.
Not to be thus easily vanquished, the Beta's
staged a counter raid and succeeded in twisting
the iron railing of the Chi Psi's establishment
until it faintly resembled a pretzel.
Thus were the seeds of bitterness sown. Later
in the winter a snow ball fight between members
of both houses resulted in a noticeable rise in the
price of window panes and some very discon-
certing drafts which the wind whipped through
the "creaky old Beta Barn," as the Chi Psi's
termed it.
The loss of Heine, large and somewhat war-
like Beta police dog after he had bitten the
judge's daughter, also heaped coal oi the flames.
The Beta's claim that now Rum, without Heine
to bother him, has taken on airs, and is becom-
ing unbearable. They consider yesterday's at-
tack adequately justified by the past conduct
of the Lodge Brothers, saying that if Rum wants
to eat out of their garbage can, they can pepper
him with BB's whenever they want.
The Chi Psi's are busy collecting bricks.
"WE HAVE DECIDED not to comment," was
the attitude of the Mosher-Jordan girls last
night after Wednesday morning's Daily carried
Fred A. Thomson's letter, protesting against
what he called a "cleansing" of the dormitory in
regard to a display of affection on the part of in-
mates and their male callers.
Beth Turnbull, past president of Jordan,
though at first declining to talk, stated later
that "she didn't care what the campus thought"
as long as Thomson was shown the error of his
Beth, apparently very indignant over the whole
affair, said that the matter had been explained
to Thompson, and that many of his statements
were shown to be untrue.

Jordan Hall last night, reiterated the stand he
took in Wednesday mornin's Daily.
To him, he explained, the whole idea is that
by stringent enforcement of rules against a dis-
play of affection on the part of dormitory girls,
the wrong social attitude is inculcated in the
minds of the girls themselves. He believes the
system breeds a sense of false values.
Generalt opinion appeared to be regimented in
both dormitories and aligned squarely against

Thompson. High officials denied the existence
of any anti-necking campaign, and general dor-
mitory opinion had it that mild displays of af-
fection were permissable..
The girls appeared to resent insinuations con-
cerning too ardent love-making 011 the part of
some of their number, but at the same time were
going to take steps to see that it immediately
It was also revealed last night that the girl
in the "test case" which Thomson used to il-
lustrate his argument, had been pardoned on
the grounds of ignorance of the' law, when her
case was reconsidered by the Jordan govern-
ing body.
* m* * *
SO THE SITUATION seems to boil down to this.
Thomson says there is a campaign against
necking, and many high student authorities deny
it. Thomson believes that the system is wrong,
and the dormitory people who will express
themselves, believe it is all right.
Thomson is for no restraint. Personally, I
think this notion, though perhaps a good theory,
is far from a sound practicability. Many girls,
and particularly freshmen, need a lot of mother-
infi when they come to college and certainly the
University would be grossly negligent if it did
not afford the protection of sane house rules to
these women.
If the rules are enforced reasonably and with
tact, and apparently the girls themselves think
they ar~e, it seems to me that a delicate situation
is being handled very nicely and that the best
thing to do is to let well enough alone and thank
the Lord that matters are not far worse than
4L, .. ..,.

York Times, Brooks Atkinson,
once said, in passing, that he knew
aothing of the theatre west of Eighth

excuses, I suppose, errors on the the-
atre page when events in the prov-
inces are discussed. As for example
:he other day when it was stated that
the Hedgerow Players, the coopera-
tive organization directed by Jasper
Deeter, would soon present Lennox
Robinson's The Round Table for the
first time in America.
However, Play Production did it
for three performances at the Men-
delssohn on November 24, 25, and

thiird act was published'on page 502
of Theatre Arts Monthly for July,
1934 and duly indexed in the 1934
volume. It has also been produced
oy the drama school of The Carnegie
Institute of Technology.
Perhaps the Times may be further
excused its error on the basis of a
distinction between professional and
amateur. But this department, if it
recognizes two kinds of theatre, does
not make the distinction on that
basis, but on the basis of good theatre
and bad theatre.

Who Works For Whom?
To the Editor:
The curious illusion expressed in B. W.'s letter
that a demonstration against war is somehow
futile unless it is also a demonstration against
the university authorities is but an extreme case
of the misapprehension involved in the use of
"strike" for a student demonstration. There can
be no such thing as a "student strike." A strike
is, by all definition, an attempt to bring pres-
sure on some employer by refusing to work for
him. For whom are the students working? The
University? If so, instead of receiving student
fees the institution should be playing the stu-
dents wages for studying there. Strictly speak-
ing, the student is the employer and the uni-
versity "works for" him by providing the instruc-
tion which he desires.
If instead of using such dignified terms as
"teaching" and "instructing" we substitute such
commercial , equivalents as "tutoring" and
"coaching" his action might be sublime or it
might be ridiculous but it would be anything on
earth except a strike. Suppose a student attend-
ed a special class in dancing or in bridge and
then refused to move a foot or handle a card as
a protest against war (or Fascism or income tax
or measles or anything else he objected to),
his protest might be an effective demonstration
but in what sense would it be a strike? Merely
because teaching is on a large and public scale
does not altar the relationship of teacher and
I wish I could believe that the "student strike"
were merely a careless misuse of language de-
signed to capture publicity, but I fear the trouble
lies in the wrong attitude many students (some
of whom are not in the least likely to join in
peace demonstrations!) have towards a univer-
sity. Why is it, for example, that when a stu-
dent hires a private coach or tutor he is angry,
if the "man I pay to teach me" does not show
up on time, while if a regular professor or in-
structor bolts a class and gives an irregular holi-
day it is a cause for rejoicing? Why is it that a
student feels good and altruistic when he studies
hard, when he is merely being intelligently sel-
fish; why does he feel slyly wicked when he "gets
by" without studying, when he is. merely cheat-
ing himself out of the instruction he has paid
for? Why does he so commonly feel that dis-
honesty in work is a sin against the professor
(whose salary goes on just the same). instead of
against his own honor, intellectual integrity and
ultimate professional or commercial competence
which really are in jeopardy? Why is it "apple
polishing" to get the private consultation and
additional help outside the classroom which the
fee-paying student (or tax-paying parent) has
every right to demand?
Our universities would be really educational
institutions if the students could once and for
all rid themselves of the strange delusion that
they are laborers working for the faculty instead
of citizens enjoying the advantages of training
