I Didn't Raise My Boy
To Be A Soldier...
A REPRESENTATIVE in the State
Legislature from New Troy,
named F. Dean Morley, introduced last week a
bill which would make military training at the
University compulsory.
We have consistently urged support of the Nye-
Kvale Bill, which would end compulsory enroll-
ment in R.O.T.C. units by an amendment to
Section 40 of the National Defense Act, and con-
versely we believe Representative Morley's Bill
must be defeated, even though the Free Press
thinks it is a good idea. The Nye-Kvale Bill,
by the way, is expected soon to be reported out
of the Senate Military Affairs Committee.
Some distinguished men and qualified author-
ities have presented their reasons for opposing
compulsory military training at various times.
Included among these are:
"I have been favorably impressed with the in-
fluence of our Reserve Officers' Training Corps
unit on the campus. In my opinion, the fact
that the work is purely voluntary has doe much
for the unit. It has mieant that only the men
interested have elected the work and the morale
of the unit has thus been high. I have observed,
that the pride which the men have taken in the
unit, the type of men who have enlisted, and
their departments have operated to improve the
manners of the student body."
-Alexander G. Ruthven.

"A Study of the Comparative Cost and Effi-
ciency of Compulsory as Against Effective R.O.-
T.C. Units," by Edwin C. Johnson, based on the
cost of producing potential Reserve officers in 11
compulsory enrollment units and 11 voluntary
enrollment units, finds that the average cost
of producing potential Reserve officers in the
compulsory units is $739, while the average cost
in the voluntary units is $305, or 59 per cent

less. The study concludes: "The great waste in
the compulsory units is caused by the necessity
of providing uniforms, equipment, and instruc-
tion for the large number of unwilling students
who are drafted as cadets in the basic courses.
The students never continue with the advanced
R.O.T.C. courses (which are optional everywhere
except at a few openly advertised military
schools) without which they cannot be eligible
for appointment as Reserve officers. Moreover,
the hostility of these students to the military
courses imposed upon them against their choice,
inpaires the morale of the units in which
they are enrolled, retards the progress, and re-
duces the quality of the work of those students
who are honestly and sincerely interested in be-
coming Reserve officers."

needs exist in peacetime for compulsory train,
ing in our civil schools and colleges."
-H. Maurice Darling, representing
Willard Straight Post, American
Legion.
* * * *
"I am opposed to compulsory military training
and in favor of the amendment for the reason
that it is my firm conviction military training
has no beneficial educational elements in it. I
am opposed to it because, in my opinion, it has
no good training for citizenship. I am opposed
to it, first, last, and all the time, the present
compulsory scheme, because it cultivates the
military mind . . . Now, it seems to me a little
ridiculous that we should go into all of this
prattle about preparedness. I should not object
to fighting or encouraging universal conscrip-
tion in case of real need . . . I do not believe we
are in any more danger of aggression than my
house is today in fear of being invaded, not a
bit. The whole scheme is such that we are iso-
lated. Nobody fears invasion from Canada &
Mexico. The modern methods of warfare ar
such that it is utterly impossible for any nation,
or any considerable body of nations, to invade
us. They are too far from their base . . . The
success of modern war depends on material re-
sources, airplanes, poison gas, submarines, and
the like, not on mass infantry, training for which
is now given in the military and naval academies,
and other schools and colleges."
-Col. John H. Gray, American Civil
Liberties Union.
"The chief charges in regard to the R.O.T.C.
are, I think, these: First and always, that it is a
means of preparing students for war, not by mil-
itary tactics, not by military discipline, but pre-
paring them for war mentally through propa-
ganda; and, under that, these subdivisions:
First. That it diverts useful funds from educa-
tion;
Second. That it obviously has no part in the
program of a liberal-arts college;
Third. That the compulsory military drill is
thoroughly anti-democratic and anti-American;
Fourth. That compulsory drill inevitably
teaches militarism more than military tactics;
Fifth. That it is regarded and favored in many
sections and pushed in many sections because
the R.O.T.C. represents on the American cam-
pus the center of class prejudice and reaction in
the American schools;
Sixth. American students believe that the
R.O.T.C. represents on the campus the whole sys-
tem of profit-war which has become completely
abhorrent to the American student body.
They believe that they have expressed their
will in regard to compulsory R.O.T.C. and in
regard to the Nye-Kvale bill, and they really ex-
pect that that will should have weight in *ie
consideration of this measure."
-George Edwards, Representing the
American Student Union.

Pertinent Anecdote
To the Editor:
Being aware of the fact that courts can pro-
tect their dignity with a very effective weapon
called "contempt proceedings," I would not pre-
sume to comment upon the Neafus case. I hope,
however, that I may be allowed to relate a more
or less pertinent anecdote.
A judge had just handed down a decision and
passed a sentence which seemed unjust. The
unfortunate victim of "Justice" had been led
back to his cell when a determined looking man
approached the bench from the crowed court-
room.
"Here your Honor," he said, "is five hundred
dollars."
"'What is that for?" the Judge wanted to know.
"It's my fine," said the man.

"Fine, what_ do you mean?" asked the puzzled
Judge. "I have imposed no fine upon you."
"I know it," replied the man, "but I am guilty
of contempt of court and my tender conscience
compels me to pay a fine. And," he continued,
"I hope your Honor will not take the size of the
fine as an indication of the extent of my con-
tempt. My offering is really limited by my finan-
cial condition. -Will Canter.
THE SCREN
1 Wake Up And Live
AT THE MICHIGAN
DARRYL ZANUCK, the little man with the big
ideas who brought Simone Simon to to
America, has rung the bell once more with
another new screen personality. Walter Win-
chell's first starring vehicle is a success from
start to finish, and with all due credit to Ben
Bernie, Jack Haley and Alice Faye, it's the na-
tion's only authentic Broadway columnist who
puts it over.
A mild but effective innovation is the casting of
Winchell and Bernie as Bernie and Winchell, thus
giving free play to their respective styles, rather
than using the artificiality of stage names. The
story is centered around the well-known and
long-standing feud on which the two have cap-
italized for years. During a Bernie broadcast
some wires are crossed and Jack Haley, kept off
the radio by his mike fright, goes on the air
without being awaie of it. He is an immediate
smash hit, but neither he himself nor anyone else
knows whose the voice was. The rest of the story
is concerned with the efforts of Winchell and
Bernie to discover the identity of the "phantom"

BBy Bonth Williams
GATHER 'ROUND my chillun and I'll tell you
a story of the latest sporting event on these
here shores, of juleps for the ladies in drooping
hats, and of long tall bourbons for tie gents
in racy coats; of seething crowds that always
smile, of mass hysteria, of never ceasing fever
pitch and great horse flesh-of color galore.
But not all of this in one dose-it's too much
for people with high blood pressure and besides
there isn't room. But when Starter Bill Hamil-
ton springs the gate on that magnificent field
of super trained three-year-olds just as the sun
begins to disappear behind the red-topped turret
of historic Churchill Downs next Saturday, you
can bet your last dollar that your columnist will
be crowding the rail in the green patched in-
field, eyes glued on what will then be the 63rd
running of the Kentucky Derby.
I was there last year for the thrill of thrills,
standing practically next the starting gate
Watching as America's best riders maneuvered
America's greatest horses for the start of the
classic which brings to the winner thousands cf
dollars, nation-wide fame, and historic glory.
I saw it all, the start, the bumping, the run
to the first turn, up the backstretch, the run
into the head of the stretch, and then that great
stretch. ride. between Brevity and Bold Venture
when Babe Hanford kept his mount on the great
Wayne Wright's whip hand throughout the final
furlong to bring in Max Hirsh's entry by a head
and return Bold Venture's backers upwards of
$40.
But enough of last year. Suffice it to say that
I'll be there again Saturday and every Derby day
as long as I can hobble, because to me there is
no sporting event in the world that can compare
with the spectacle which is the Kentucky Derby.
%: k* c
INASMUCH as some few people do bet a nickel
or so on the outcome, it is a pretty good thing
to know something about the entrie and how
they might finish.
Last year I picked Brevity to win, Granville
to run second, and Indian Broom for the show.
Brevity just failed to get up and got the place
with the Broom running third. Granville, al-
though he later proved to be the outstanding-
three-year-old of the year, stumbled at the start
and threw his boy. Two years ago I had Omaha
to take the cake and the big son of Gallant Fox
won easily.
.Having thus aired my past record as a handi-
capper, I submit my selections for this year's
classic.
First-War Admiral.
Second-Sceneshifter.
Third-Pompoon.
War Admiral looks like the winner. The trim
brown .son of the immortal Man O' War is one
of the few entries bred to go a distance, and the
mile and a quarter over which the Derby is run
calls for stamina and plenty of it. As a two-
year-old, War Admiral ran six races, of which
he won three, including the Eastern Shore Han-
dicap. He looked like a champion then and has
been improving constantly.
This spring he has two important victories t
his credit, the most notable of which is his easy
capture of the $10,000 Chesapeake Stakes when
he finished on top by six lengths. The Admiral
will be ridden by Charlie Kurtzinger and will
probably go to the post at something like 5-2.
S CENESHIFTER is my Derby dark one. Al-
though quoted in the future books at 15-1 his
recent race at Hialeah when he breezed a mile
and an eighth in 1:48.4 to whip the rest of the
field by ten lengths stamps him as a worthy con-
tender. He definitely showed that he can go a
route, and this factor alone will drop the odds
a long way. Sceneshifter, which may run
coupled with Fencing unless Earle Sande decides
to enter only one of his mounts, did not hurt his
stock any Saturday when he turned in a spar-
kling workout for a mile and seventy yards.
I pick POMPOON third chiefly because of his
early speed. With Richards in the saddle this
hide, which failed so miserably in the Wood Me-

morial last Saturday, will have a great chance to
break on top and if he can get out there may
have enough left for the show.
Personally I think the pride of the East,
owned by J. H. Loucheim of Philadelphia, is
still dangerous. Smart horsemen, though ad-
mitting that a distance is not to Pompoon's lik-
ing admit that it would be better to throw out
his last effort and consider him more on his
brilliant record of last year when he was ac-
claimed the two year old champion of America.
* * * *
THAT'S the way I see it, but there are plenty
of other good horses. REAPING REWARD
beat Pompoon in the New England futurity last
fall, but was given weight. He may have a prep
today and if he shows to advantage will bear
watching. MELODIST who came from 'way back
like a true router Saturday while winning the
Wood, would be ranked much higher except that
he is a notoriously poor shipper and will prob-
ably run far off his best form. NO SIR, SIR
DAMION, OLD NASSAU, GREY GOLD, PRIV-
ILEGED and COURT SCANDAL are all highly
regarded.
Colonel E. R. Bradley will be pinning all his
hopes on Billionaire in the Blue Grass classic.
His more highly rated stablemate Brooklyn, was
scratched Sunday after it became apparent that
he was not in shape. Bradley will be looking
for another winner to add to Broker's Tip and
Burgoo King who took two in a row for Bradley
and the West.
In recent years the East has held sway over
the Derby. Bold Venture, Omaha and Cavalcade.
all sported the colors of Eastern owners following
Bradley's two-year domination.

Paths Of Glory
A Review
The Detroit Federal Theatre, U.S.A.
work Program, WPA, Mrs. Hallie Flan-
agan, National Director; presents Paths
of Glory a play adapted by Sidney How-
ard from the novel by Humphrey Cobb.
Directed by verner Haldene. Fred Mor-
row, Project Supervisor. At the People's bf
Theatre, 12th at Seward, Detroit. d
WITH THIS PRODUCTION the
Detroit WPA Federal Theatre
has passed its qualifying examina- h
tions for artistic maturity. In their u
production last month of E. P. Con-
kle's 200 Were Chosen it was easy to a
see that they were about to pass from a
the previous stage of fumbling and 1
uncertainty and to realize some of the i
ideals set down by Mrs. Hallie Flat- c
agan, the national director of the Ih
Federal Theatre. In the production s
of Paths of Glory there was strong e
evidence of discipline, and unity of r
understanding on the part of the ac-p
tors as to what they were trying tow
do. It is this blending of all the parts
of a performance in the theatre into
a whole that constitutes to us today
the art of the theatre. ts
Like other Federal Theatre com- e
panies the one in Detroit is made up
of actors with little uniformity of in
method or background. In this pro-
duction, Mr. Verner Haldean has suc- t
ceeded in making them play the play e
with force and conviction, with a r
steady grasp on it from start to fin- A
ish. One got the effect of continuous
movement as each bit of the play led f
on to the next. Part of his success q
was due to skillful casting, part t
coaching of individual actors into ar
understanding of their job as part oa
the whole. No doubt some of the suc-a
cess of the ensemble is due to the
companies previous work together i
the months since the project wa .
formed because the productions have '
been getting steadily better. And thi'
in spite of a number of unfortunater
choices of plays, especially at the be-
ginnng. I
PLAY HASr
ANTI-WAR THEME
Paths of Glory is an anti-war play
much like most of the other realistic t
ones since What Price Glory? It is far a
from being a totally satisfactory one. a
however, for the very reason that a
there is scene after scene painting
the same horrors of war we have been t
made so familiar with in dozens of s
novels and plays. There is no denying r
that these facts of war can hardly-p
from a humanitarian point of view
-be recalled too often. But to be
interesting in the theatre there must s
be some new approach. Paths ofa
Glory has this in its plot but we doe
not arrive at it until the last sceness
of the play. And before we get to a
the main action there is too much
uninteresting exposition that is notw
saved, as it might be, by a wealth of
incident or strong character interest.t
As it is we are shown that soldiers
must blindly follow orders, that they
are often hungry and tired, that they
want liquor and women, that homee
ties are strong.
The main incident is concerned 1
with the court martial of four entirelyi
innocent soldiers for the purpose of
discipline. The scenes where they arec
selected by their immediate superiors
and the trial scene with its melo-t
drama and the sense of horrible in-
justice that it gives are powerfulq
indeed. The last scene with its em-e
phasis on individual character is the
most moving in the play-that is be-
fore it is prolonged too much. A linep
by Private Langlois, who was chosen d
by lot, to Didier, who was chosen be-
cause his superior officer hated him,n
seems a good enough criticism ofI
the play as a whole. Langlois says:t
"It is hard toshate an impersonal b
force. At least you have an en-
DIRECTION ANDr

ACTING SUPERIORL
In the large cast there is a feelingr
-as there should be-of each actora
contributing enormously his effective
bit to keep the play sustained in ther
acting and making up for what it=
lacks in the writing. But when the
personal element is felt in the last
scenes it was met by the appealing
sympathy of Chester Adams as Lang-
lois, by the stature Edward Masson
gives to Didier, by the stirring appeal
of Jay Michael's Colonel Dax at the
trial.
Now that the Detroit Federal, The-
atre players have reached the stand-
ard of production shown in Paths of
Glory, their next plays should be most
eagerly awaited.

Rights and Privileges of Policy- t
olders of T.I.A.A. Of special interest S
pon withdrawal from service. D
1. No change of employment status
ffects the amount of premium for a
policy. Policies issued prior to i
936 provided for a higher premium W
f a policyholder entered a commer- o
ial occupation, but the Association
as voted not to enforce this provi- I
ion so that, regardless of shift in
mployment, a policyholder always
eceives the advantage of the low t
remium charged when the policy t
as issued. 1
Retirement Annuity Policyholders.
II. If a policyholder is transferring
o another institution, he should con-
ult the officials of the new employ-
r as to whether or not it will share M
n continuing premium payments'. 'au
III. Upon withdrawal from a con-. s
ributing institution, the policyhold- t
r has the following choices with
eference to his contract with this
ssociation: g
(a) He may continue premiums in i
ull either annually, semi-annually, I
[uarterly or monthly. c
(b) He may ask that the premium
e reduced. This privilege is avail-
ible by vote of the Board of Trustees
nd is not a provision of the policy
ontracts. A retluction cannot be
made retroactively so arrangements H
hould be made immediately. (TheH
minimum premium acceptable is a s
egular payment of $5 monthly, or an t
quivalent sum paid quarterly, semi-
annually, or annually.)*
T
(c) He may make no further pay-
ment of premiums, in which case the
,ontract automatically b e c o m e sa
'paid-up." (Under a paid-up con-
ract, the annuity will become pay-
able as the original annuity was pay-
ble for such reduced amount as the
accumulated premiums will purchase.
To resume payments later, on a paid- i
up contract, it is necessary to rein- B
tate it by the payment of all pre-
miums in default with interest at 5A
per cent per annum.)
IV. Leave of Absence. The provi-
ions described above are, of course,
available in case of absence on leave,
either with or without pay, but no r
;pecial privileges are granted to such 7
absentees.
T h e Association recommends, t
wherever possible, that both the in- S
stitution and the staff member con-
tinue payments in full on annuity T
contracts during leave of absence. g
Life Insurance Policyholders.
V. If premiums have been deduct-
ed from salary and remitted by the7
institution, this procedure has been 1
based on instructions from the po-
icyholder. If such a policyholdero
withdraws from the institution, he, ofJ
course, becomes responsible for the
payment of future premiums. If he4
tion, it, is suggestedrthat he make in-
quiry as to whether or not the new1
employer will, on his authority, de-T
duct premiums and transmit them to6
the Association. Most institutions,
particularly those remitting annuity
premiums, are willing to make de-
ductions from salary payments
monthly for life insurance premiums.C
If the employer will do this, instruc-b
tions should be given by the policy-t
holder to theinstitution in witing.1
The Association will furnish bankst
devised for this purpose.
If salary deductions are not per-
mitted in the new institution, pre- Y
miums may be paid personally by
monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or c
annual payments. (If premiums areI
paid monthly, no regular premium
notices are sent and a receipt is sent
only at the end of the policy year).
