The Dorm's Challenge
To The Fraternty..
'.ORK on the dormitory project has
W increased the amount of specula-
tion on the question: Is the fraternity in its
present state worth the extra expense for what
seems to be dubious educational and social re-
turt -.Inorder to strengthen the fraternity's ed-
;lV~i; itiol indefense of this question ef-
rhave been made on many campuses to riake
'fraternities keep up with the colleges in edu-
tioInal progress. One measure introuced hre
d'tly would require fraternities to havea
. p1astic average above the all men's average
iefo're they would receive permission to have
freshmen'live in the house the second semester.
'uiaortuxnately, fraternity men have reacted to
ee measures half-heartedly.
"I'he 'fraternity was one of the last places ; to
ee the effects of the depression and is still
clinging to the "mad, glad' 1920's. Fraternities
apparently have not realized that boys come
to .cdllege today in a spirit rather different from
the' blithe conventionality of the roaring 20's.
Oolleges have been more discerning of this shift-
ing attitude among undergraduates and have
iatered to 'it by providing an intellectual atmo-
sphere, simply by building new educational edi-
fices of their own: dormitories, quadrangles, and
house plans often under tutorial supervision.
When tutors are provided in dormitories, edu-
cation becomes a more pervasive factor in the
student's life, bringing an improvement in stu-
sent-faculty relationships..
It might be asked if this attempt to make
edueation go beyond the classroom will have any
o ni the fraternity. In answer to this IJo-
';Bartlett, Grad., resident 'advisor fi' the
r chapter of Chi Psi fraternity, recently
. Fraternities .sowly, pitiably slowly, are
k ig' that they are ideally' 'suited to the
e'r Education. They are ideal units in tie
&hh1eme of personalized education, if they will
but take the trouble to equip themselves for it."
,The equipment that he suggests is the resident

adviser, whom he describes as a graduate stu-
dent in residence at the chapter, whose purpose
is inspirational and whose duties are to provide
a link between faculty and fraternity, actives
and alumni, to improve scholarship and to act
as counsellor in problems of the chapter. He'
asks, "Can't" we have a resident fellow in a
fraternity house with the same objective as the
resident fellow in a quadrangle?"
'The University has answered this question un-
equivocally. Its answer is taken from a letter
from the Dean of Students office, addressed to
graduate students qualified to serve as student
advisers: "Upon the recommendation of this
office, the Regents of the 'University of Michigan
have approved a request made by a committee
of the National Fraternity Secretaries Associa-
tion to the effect that the University, will offer
free tuition to preceptors or (resident) advisers
for fraternities desiring to use 'them.

By RICHARD M. SCAMMON
Some weeks ago the Nation published two ar-
ticles by Charles R. Walker on the Farmer-Labor
party of Minnesota and the problems incident
to its growth and present position of power. The
Daily commented editorially on these articles on
March 26, pointing out that Mr. Walker pre-
sented a picture of the Minnesota Farmer-
Labor organization which was hardly encourag-
ing to intellectual radicals but which was nearer
to the truth than their own dreams of the Amer-
ican Front Populaire. It is interesting, in view
of the comments of the Daily editorial and of
the original articles themselves, to consider a
new crisis which has developed in the party since
Mr. Walker wrote his impressions of it.
This spring, elections will be held in the city
of Minneapolis for various municipal officers, in-
cluding a mayor, aldermen, and various others.
These elections, while presumably held "without
party designation" as in Detroit, Milwaukee and
many other cities, are actually, because of the
practice of the Farmer-Laborites in "endorsing"
a slate of candidates, almost as partisan as elec-
tions conducted under the more common prac-
tice of printing a candidate's party affiliation
on the ballot. Naturally enough, with the Far-
mer-Labor party and its miscellaneous trade
union and quasi-liberal allies supporting a ticket
in the elections, the conservative elements in the
Republican and Democratic organizations
mobilize behind the anti-radical candidates and
a straight liberal-conservative contest is thus
ensured. At the last city elections, held in 1935,
the Farmer-Labor "endorsees" were largely suc-
cessful, their candidate for Mayor, Thomas E.
Latimer, being elected by a large majority over
his conservative opponent, and the liberal groups
gaining a small majority on the City Council.
These elections were marked by a ftrong Farmer-
Labor campaign, for the Leftists remembered
only too well the way the conservative Mayor
"Buzz" Bainbridge handled the truck drivers'
strikes in 1934.
As soon as he was elected, the new Mayor gave
evidence of a change of heart and he, an ex-
Socialist party official, used the police as dras-
tically against'strikers as his predecessor, in one
case personally leading a group of strike-breakers
through the picket lines. In the Flour City Iron
Works strike, in the fall of 1935; three months
after Latimer's election, clashes between strikers
and police led to the killing of several bystanders,
including two children. Whether justified or not,
these actions of Mayor Latimer caused tremen-
dous resentment among the Farmer-Labor forces
which elected him, and demands were made for
his expulsion from the party. His friends, how-
ever, managed to delay any formal expulsion
moves until the storm had quieted down and the
less militant elements were in control.
BY MARCH of this year, however, the situation
had entirely changed, for in October, 1935,
the Communist movement had decided to aban-
don its previous attitude of uncompromising
oppositiop to reformist and liberal political
parties. As a result of this change in the Com-
munist "line," the French Communist party
joined in the formation, with the Socialist party
of Leon Blum and various liberal elements, of
the "Front Populaire" government. In Great
Britain, the Communist party endeavored to gain
admittance to the ranks of the Labor Party, and,
failing in this attempt, gave its support none-
the-less to the Laborites in the British general
elections of November, 1935. In America the
Communists have ceased their attacks on those
persons known to Communist literature as "social
fascists," that is, liberals and other reformers
refusing to following the old Communist tech-
niques. In Minnesota, the Communists, who for
over a decade had run candidates against the
Farmer-Labor nominees and had bitterly at-
tacked the heads of the third party movement as
"misleaders of the working class," joined the
Farmer-Labor 'Association and proceeded to
"bore from within." The Farmer-Labor Associa-
tion, it should be explained, is a dues-paying
organization formed of township and ward clubs
throughout Minnesota and having, in all, around
twenty thousand members, composing the rank-
and-file backbone of the movement. The Com-
munists, well-trained in organization, strategy,
and the other fundamentals of political battle,
soot gained positions of considerable strength

in the third-party clubs and retain that strength
now, particularly in Minneapolis. In the elec-
tions of November, 1936, the Communists did not
run candidates of their own for state offices,
but supported the whole Farmer-Labor ticket
and campaigned vigorously for it.
When the city convention of the Farmer-Labor
Association of Minneapolis and its allies was
held March 1, 1937, the Communists, al-
though not, by themselves, in a majority, joined
with the left-wing of the Association to control
the convention. The more conservative elements,
who were supporting Mayor Latimer for re-en-
dorsement as the Farmer-Labor candidate for
Mayor in the spring elections, bolted the conven-
tion and organized a "rump" group. The regular
convention, which had taken no official action on
the nomination of a candidate for Mayor, then
adopted Kenneth Haycraft, the Director of the
Psi and Phi Kappa Tau, but Dean Bursley agrees
that more houses should use this opportunity.
Prof. Robert P. Briggs, fraternity financial ad-
viser, said of the plan that he knew of no fra-
ternity that could not afford to adopt it and not
one that would not be more than paid back for

State Old-Age Pension Administration, as its
candidate, and named a ticket of aspirants to
run with him for the various minor offices open.
The Latimer "rump" convention roundly at-
tacked the influence of the Communists, assert-
ing that Communism was the issue and that
Mayor Latimer must be re-elected to demon-
strate the fundamental "Americanism" of the
Farmer-Labor movement. . Of all the attacks
upon the Communists, the most vigorous was
delivered by Miles Dunne, a leader of the Truck
Drivers' union and a well-known Trotskyite and
Socialist party leader. In his attack he w
supported by other Trotskyites and by the Min-
neapolis local of the Socialist party, which is
under the control of the Trotskyite group.
HERE THEN was a great paradox. Presum-
ably the Trotskyites, organized in the Com-
munist League of America, the Workers' Party,
and, most recently, in the Socialist Party, were
the most militant of the militant, the ultra-
ultra radicals, yet they were supporting a red-
baiting move against the Farmer-Labor party
and in favor of a candidate for Mayor whom a
year previously they had denounced as a traitor
to labor, a man whom they had claimed they
would never support for re-election. In their
activities they aligned themselves with the most
conservative of the A.F. of L. leaders, with men
they had termed "labor racketeers," with groups
they had accused of being under the control of
the liquor-dealers and brewery interests, and,
above all, with the Right in a Left-Right fac-
tional struggle.
How can the attitude of the Trotsky group be
explained? To many observers in Minnesota it is
inexplainable save in Russian terms, and, if their
"Russian" explanation is correct, it certainly
sheds considerable light on the guilt of Trotsky
himself as far as his dealings with Germany and
Japan are concerned. These observers hold that
the split, not only in Russia, but throughout
the world, between Trotskyism and the control-
ling forces in the official Communist party, domi-
nated by Stalin, is so complete that the Trotsky-
ites will ally themselves with anyone, no matter
how reactionary, if they feel that by so doing
they will hamper or defeat the policy of the
Stalinists. It is significant to note that the at-
tacks of the Trotskyites on the Farmer-Labor
organization in Minnesota a re not directed
against Communist control but against Stalinist
control. Thus the Trotskyite leaders refer to
the leaders of the regular organization, not as
"Communists," but as "Stalinist stooges." If we
may assume that this explanation is correct, then
we may also assume that the Trotskyites, if sin-
cere, have entered into this "rump" coalition with
the idea of eventually controlling it. If so,
however, they are faced with an almost impos-
sible task, for the split in Minneapolis, with some
exceptions, has placed the radicals and militants
behind the Haycraft faction and has left only
conservative Farmer-Laborites in the Latimer
group. Thus the Trotskyites have brought them-
selves to the task of converting, not radicals who
half-agree with them, but conservatives who are
opposed to any form of Communist influence, no
matter what its designation.
Since the party split in March, the campaign
has been carried .on with a view to the primary
elections of May 10 and the bitterness of the
split has grown as the campaign has progressed.
The conservative faction's leaders have refused
mediation of the dispute, trusting to Mayor Lat-
imer's personal following to get him nominated,
and are continuing the attack on the "reds." The
Haycraft group, in control of the official ma-
chinery of the Association, have taken steps
to expel the conservative leaders, have sought
legal means to prevent the insurgents from
using the name "Farmer-Labor," and are con-
tinuing their attack against Latimer as a "be-
trayer" of the workers and a tool of the em-
ployers. Efforts of state leaders to repair the
schism have proven fruitless and apparently the
party will go into the primaries completely disor-
ganized. So far the regulars seem to have con-
siderable support from the local ward organiza-
tions and from some of the trade unions, par-
ticularly those affiliated with the CIO, while the
Latimer support comes primarily from the right-
wing Farmer-Laborites, the conservative trade
unionists, and from the "open-town" interests
who fear a change of administration may ruin
their business.

THIS CONFLICT within the Farmer-Labor
movement has assumed the outward charac-
teristics of a Left-Right factional war, but it
must be interpreted in the light of the Stalinist-
Trotskyite dispute, for the Trotskyites, in para-
doxically aligning themselves with their sup-
posed conservative opponents, have carried the
Jesuitical approach to politics to its logical ex-
treme. Their tactics seem almost impossible of
success, for even if their faction wins against
the regular Left-wing group, they have little
chance to convert their natural conservative
enemies to their own viewpoint of world revo-
lution and Left Communism. No matter how
fantastic the Trotskyite plan may seem, it is the
logical result of the intellectual reaction to poli-
tics which carries the scope of activity to any
field necessary to victory. In this example may
be seen the possibility that Trotsky did in fact
agree to give the Ukraine to Germany in re-
turn for German aid in upsetting the Stalinist
regime.

and "Why Girls Leave Home" fol-
lowing. These tabulations are incom-.

(THE SCREEN '
The King And The
Chorus Girl
Although it tries very hard, and
possibly for that precise reason, this
new Warners' Brothers vehicle just
can't quite seem to get on the trol- I
ley, It is funny enough in places,
but the humour seems to be mostly
extra-curricular; the writers and di-
rector have been unable to fully util-
ize the possibilities of their idea,
which is really almost as original
as a original as a motion picture idea
ever is.
Fernand Gravet rmakes a capivat-
ing ex-monarch in Paris, and with a
little more assistance from the tech-
nical staff would have had no. diffi-;
culty in placing his first starring pic-
ture among the best of the year, espi-
cially with Joan Blondell playing op-
posite.
Miss Blondell plays the part of
(guess) a chorus girl in the Folies
Bergeres.
His ex-Majesty Gravet drops in for
a rest from his brandy bottle, and
spotting Joan directly off the bat,;
has her invited to supper. Right here
the plot takes a running jump for
familiar cover; Gravet's two faith-
ful retainers, Edward Everett Hor-.
ton and Mary Nash, anxious to snap
their master out of the lethargy into
which he has fallen, urge Joan to
"resist," just to give the king some-I
thing to occupy his mind. Needless
to say, what started out as an in-
trigue ends up, after numerous mis-
understandings, with everybody in
the cast tired but happy
-J.G.
to hold the various groups together,
there is a good possibility that the
Right and. Left will soon pat com-
pany.
In this split lies one of the funda -
mental difficulties of a national Far-
mer-Labor movement-the satisfac-
tion of the reformers and of the rev-
olutionaries and, above all, the hold-
ing-together of groups, which, apply-
ing the Jesuitical principle to politics,
it is virtually impossible to hold to-
gether. * *
NOTE: Since this article was pre-
pared, the time for filing for city
offices in the primary election has
closed, and, in a last-minute develop-
ment, Vincent R. Dunne, Socialist'
candidate for Secretary-of-State in
1936, Trotskyite and Truck Drivers'
Union leader, filed for Mayor as a
Socialist candidate. It is difficult to
interpret this new political move save
as an effort by the Trotsky group,
realizing the dangerous position in
which they had placed themselves
and the whole Socialist movement, to
"save-face" by running their own
candidate.
By this move they remove from,
themselves the onus of supporting a,
