becomes hopelessly snarled and both sides de-
cide : "We can't agree."
The conferences take place at regular intervals,
under the act's provisions, at "Industrial coun-
cils" iwhich the state industrial welfare board is
to help organize. These councils are to consist
of representatives of labor and management.
Mediation is provided by a "special board of
mediation" which is to be created by the indus-
trial relations board with the approval of both
sides. If this is not agreeable the "industrial
council" is empowered to appoint its own medi-
ator who then may cooperate with the industrial
labor relations board.
Now the typical "industrial council" is that re-
cently created in the UAWA-Packard agreement:
"regular conferences, shall take place between
the plant shop committee of the union and
the management's representatives once each
month at a time mutually agreed upon."
Once such a council disagrees over a vital issue,
the task of a mediator, if he is to bring about a
settlement at so late a stage in the game, be-
comes almost insurmountable.
If however the mediator attends the regular
conferences from the beginning he would be in a
position to anticipate and prevent industrial
disputes before they took form.
Provided with adequate and impartial infor-
mation (by investigators for which the act ar-
ranges), he could judge the accuracy of man-
agement claims that "lack of profits prohibit a
wage increase," and union claims that "higher
living costs require a wage increase."
The plan is practical, for with conferences
once a month in each plant, one mediator could
act for many concerns. He would be powerless
to vote (else he would find himself really an ar-
bitrator by casting the deciding vote) but just
as Governor Murphy in the General Motors
strike, he would possess the information and im-
partiality which is the basis of conciliatory meth'-
ods.
He would provide a balance wheel which would
assist and maintain the democratic process in
industry and end serious threats to industrial
democracy before they can exert pressure.

THE FORUM

The Industrial
RelationsAct. 0

THE "industrial relations act" pre-
pared under the direction of Gov-
ernor Murphy and. now receiving consideration
by the State Legislature is a most significant
document. It represents a synthesis of many
experiences-notably in Australia, Great Britain,
Canada and American states-with government
intervention in labor disputes.
While it is so generally worded as to allow di-
vergent interpretations, its chief provisions in-
clude:
1. A guarantee of collective bargaining rights
for employees.
2. A state industrial relations board, with
broad powers of investigation and mediation.
3. Registration of unions, requiring nearly all
possible information except membership lists.
4. A requirement that all labor disputes shall
be submitted to this board, and that all strikes
and lockouts shall be unlawful during a pre-
liminary period when these disputes are being
investigated.
5. Extraordinary powers vested in the Gover-
nor to postpone for an indefinite length of time
strikes or lockouts when the "public interest" re-
quires.
This act will be modified in many respects be-
fore it actually becomes a law. Governor Murphy
unquestionably intended that this should be so.
After careful study, it seems to us that at least
these important changes are advisable:

To The Defense
To the Editor:.
The Board of Education in Flint recently failed
to renew the contracts of several prominent Flint
school teachers on the grounds of alleged ineffi-
ciency, incompeterce, and lack of general teach-
ing ability. Four of these teachers-Caroline
Stearns, Shirley Olmstead, Edmund Alubowitz,
and Morris Roum, are members of the Michigan
Federation of Teachers, which contends that
" these teachers have had satisfactory teach-
ing experience of from one and a half to 16
years. "It seems rather clear that, while not
stated, activity in the American Federation of
Teachers is the real cause of dismissal."
Students at Flint Junior College came to the
defense of Miss Stearns by presenting petitions
bearing over 200 signatures to the school board.
Several former Junior College students on the
University campus disagree with the board's
charges of inefficiency and incompetence direct-
ed at Miss Stearns. All those who wish to vouch
for her competency and to protest the board's
action are urged to sign petitions to that
effect which are already being circulated by the
following students on campus: George Stevens,
'39L, Shirley Sanford, '37, Donald Beebe, '37,
Sim Dimitroff, '39M and F. Paul Probert, '37.
Those desiring to register a personal testimony
as to the teaching ability of any of these dis-
missed teachers, are likewise urged to do so. Send
all protesting correspondence to Ralph M. Free-
man, Secretary, The Board of Education, Flint.
Duplicate copies of such correspondence has been
requested by the board's critics and should be
sent to Mrs. Genevieve Evanoff, 1172 Oak Street,
Flint.
The Ann Arbor chapter of the Teachers' Fed-
eration, we have been informed, has the Flint
situation under observation and future action is
at present being considered. This abridgement
of academic freedom is but one of a number
of precedents everywhere encroaching on profes-
sional rights. We of the University who hold
professional positions, or hope to in the future,
should begin now to check such intimidation and
prevent its repetition.

Whom
To the Editor:
Answering Professor Slosson's letter called
"Who Works for Whom," Mr. S. L. brought to
light some ideas which I have heard before and
after classes among a large number of intelli-
gent students.
Everybody knows that the function of a uni-
versity professor is to preserve, communicate,
and advance human knowledge but this ideal is
rarely personified in the actual faculties of col-
leges and universities. Let me remark at the
starting that I believe in personal effort for
learning and that the function of the teacher is
to stimulate and guide the students. This is what
we ask from our instructors, but do we get it?
Not in every case. Why do some members of
the faculty fail in their duties and leave bad im-
pressions in the mind of the student?
I have been following a course of lectures in a
rather remote subject in order to guide my
studies upon a branch of Medieval culture. Un-
fortunately our professor cuts generally once a
week (oftentimes two and three) lectures rarely
and insipidly, reflecting an evident lack of in-
terest for the student. In this particular case
the class is wasting time and creating distaste

BENEATH ****
*****IT ALL~
SATURDAY was a great day for the Michigan
delegation to the Derby. Last year it cost
them 35 cents apiece to buy their way into the in-
field, but Saturday they wriggled through a hole
in the fence along the backstretch and planted
their portable camp chairs across from the own-
ers' boxes for a dime a head-while general ad-
mission customers spent up to five dollars each
to squint through periscopes from far up the
track, and ended up by tramping over into the
infield for a look at the races.
THE DAY WAS PERFECT. Only faint wisps of
white marred the perfect blue of the sky,
and the hot sun rolled up sleeves and opened
collars. By eleven o'clock the infield was begin-
ning to fill up with both black and white, half
of them were there to take money from the rest.
Crap games, three card faro, touts, bookies,
and the long-fingered gentry were all present
-and very busy. Negroes were everywhere and
kept up a continual din.
Gangs of colored boys roamed through the
crowd snatching everything not watched. I got
up once to make a bet and a little darkie made
off with my chair while Bill Bates was sitting
right next to it.
A few minutes later I saw a -big hulk of a
Negro kick the legs out from'under a 15-year-old
boy carrying a big basket of sandwiches and in
an instant a hundred howling, scrapping colored
kids were massed in a seething pile grabbing for
the lion's share of the loot.
SOME OF THE SHYSTERS have this three
card game down to a rare science. There
are three cards, two black and one red, and the
object of the bettor is to guess where the red one
is after the cards have been manipulated.
These brothers have a line of chatter calcu-
lated to suck in Mahatma Gandhi as they slowly
flip the cards back and forth offering to pay
you twenty for ten if you turn up the red one.
They don't fool with small change. A fin is the
least they'll cover ahd they often entice suckers
into making bets of twenty bucks and more.
And they entice a lot of people. They'll flip the
cards slowly so that you can plainly see just
where the red one is, but presto, it was the one
next to it. Too bad!
Another trick is for the manipulator to ap-
pear to make an awkward mistake, and you, set
to pick up some easy cash, find that he wasn't
so clumsy after all.
But the best act and the one that really
tumbles the suckers is only put on by the past-
masters of the art when they want to drum up
business. The head shyster finally entices some-
one to bet a fiver. The sucker picks wrong and in
anger throws the card out over the crowd which
is gathered around.
The manipulator protests, sand when he turns
his back to pick it up someone in the crowd grabs
the red card and bends up a corner. When the
shyster resumes his chatter he has a taker who
wins, another, and another-all picking the red
card by the bent edge. Someone inathe crowd
shouts lets break this S.O.B. and another guy
wins.
A portly business man who has been watching
the proceedings with a look of indifference now
steps forward to take advantage of the situation.
He's seen so many of these boys shake down
suckers that it does him good to see one of them
taken for a good ride.
The shyster looks worried as the eager crowd
jams around and he calls out in a shaky voice,
"I got plenty more money, now who knows where
the red one is."
A half dozen see the bent edge but the big
man steps forward and says, "I'll bet you a hun-
dred dollars I can pick it."
The shyster looks green, but the crowd behind
him starts to clamor and threaten. He agrees
and the big man with an air of tolerant amuse-
ment turns up the card with the bent edge. It is
black.
. * *

Sure, the whole thing was sucker bait. The
first fellow, who threw the card away, was a
plant, so was the fellows who marked it, so
were the fellows who won on it, so was the
angry fellow who stirred up the crowd. And
then the shyster simply straightened the edge of
the red card, bent the edge of a black one,
and proceeded to hook the big business promoter
like any common farm boy. Simple.
AF TER watching this fascinating little spec-
tacle your columnist sauntered up to the
head of the stretch and was almost taken over
the bumps himself.
A rather seedy looking individual bummed
a match and asked how he could get into the
grand stand. Looking at the row of national
guardsmen all along the rail I told him he
couldn't and explained that you could see a good
deal better from the infield.
He said he didn't care, he wanted to get across
and when I said that he could bet with the
bookmakers and collect just as much as from the
mutuals he muttered, "I never play the horses."
"What's your racket, then mister?" I asked. At
the same moment I got a glimpse of small narrow
hands with slim digits and I didn't need his,
"What the hell do you think," to draw my con-
clusions.
And so another Derby has come and gone, but
the beauty of it is that next year and the year
after, and the year after that there will be an-
other Derby and anyone who really wants to
can see the whole thing for a dime.

"VERTURE TO "DER FREI-
SCHUTZ"-Weber. Unlike all too ac
many musical masterpieces, Weber's th
lomantic opera, Der Freischutz, was in
hailed at its first performance at Ber- Bu
lin on June 18, 1821, by both public m
and critics as an operatic triumph-a sa
triumph particularly of the new Ger- D
man romanticism and nationalism (1
over the degenerate ostentatiousness va
of Gasparo Spontini, then the reign- by
ing idol. The Overture itself was ta
wildly cheered, and had to be repeat-
ed. th
Although 219 of the 342 measures re
in the Overture are actually from da
the opera itself, there is no appear- tu
ance of patchwork or of the kind of b
melodic potpourri that serves as at
many an operatic overture. The f
form is entirely logical and sym- to
metrical. In addition, the Overture d
is highly dramatic, a quality which
affected and influenced at least two to
later masters-Wagner and Berlioz.IL
The latter repeatedly pinnacled the L
work in rhapsodic eulogies, as in his E
"Treatise on Instrumentation," when e
he speaks of the "dreamy phrase of J
the clarinet, accompanied by a trem-
olo of stringed instruments, in the
midst of the Allegro of the Overture. 1
Does it not depict the lonely maid- H
en, the forester's fair betrothed, who, H
raising her eyes to heaven, mingles M
her tender lament with the noise of e
the dark woods agitated by the b
storm? O, Weber!" Li
O Berlioz! tU
Songs-(Children's Chorus). The e
first of the three songs to be sung by h
the Children's Festival Chorus is
"The Lass with the Delicate Air," a
lilting ballad in the English folk w
style by Michael Arne, a noted Eng- t
lish musician and-strangely-al-e
chemist of the middle eighteenth cen-f
tury. The second is one of Schubert's d
simplest yet most delightful melo-
dies, "The Trout"-the tune of which
he also used as the theme for a set
of variations in his well-known pi-
ano quintet of that title. The third, U
and more modern, song is the "Lulla- r
by" of Cyril Scott, contemporary i
Engish composer, poet, and phil- T
osopher, in which a simple melody is p
given a subtle harmonization that is
characteristically Scottian.
SYMPHONY NO. S IN B MINORt
(Unfinished)-Schubert. Of all t
the mysteries which musical historys
has unfolded perhaps the most in-O
triguing of all, rivalled only by the d
enigma of Beethoven's "Immortal
Beloved," is the question of "why" r
the "Unfinished Symphony." It was
not, like the uncompleted works of P
other men, left so by the death of the
composer; Schubert lived six years,
his most productive years, after the
completion of its first two movements
and fragments of a third. Besides,
the score was sent as it stands to the
Musical Society of Graz, in gratitude
for the composer's election as an hon-
orary member-thus proving that, as
far as Schubert was concerned, the
work was "finished." Did other cares,
other occupations interrupt? Did the
fount of inspiration fail? Was the
lyric rapture of the Allegro and An-
dante evoked by some secret love
affair which came to nought, and so b
embittered the unhappy youth of 25 r
toward the half-ripened fruit of his g
emotion? c
Or was it that, after an indifferent C
attempt to round out the Symphony C
along classic lines, he realized that c
what he had written was no ordinary h
sonata-allegro and contrasting slow I
movement, demanding the relief of o
a scherzo and lively finale, but the k
well-rounded expression of a par-c
ticular mood-a thing of beauty and t
completeness following which a con-v
ventional conclusion would seem in- t
tolerable? Schubert may not have
reasoned it all out along these lines, I
but he was too sensitive an artist notI
to feel instinctively when he had saidr
all he had to say.t

Like many other of Schubert's1
works, the B minor Symphony was
not made known to the world untilg
years after his death. In 1865 af
Viennese conductor, Johann Her-
beck, heard a rumor of the existence
of such a score, and succeeded in un-
earthing it from amongst a pile ofj
yellowed manuscripts in the pos-(
:ession of the aged director of the
Musical Society of Graz, to which
Schubert had sent the score in 1822.
At its first performance, in Vienna,
Herbeck "finished" the work with
the rather mediocre Presto finale
from Schubert's more puerile Third
Symphony. "Finished" is probably
the word!
SPRING ]RAPTURE-Gaul. Harvey
B. Gaul was born in New York
City in 1881, studied in New York and
Paris, and has held positions as or-
ganist, teacher, and critic in New
York Cleveland, and his present
home Pittsburgh. Another cantata
of his for children "Old Johnny Ap-
pleseed," was performed at the 1931
Festival.

text was written by Nelle Richmond

to the Governor. The act provides: ".... and in
the event that' any act herein declared to be in-
compatible with the public peace, welfare, and
safety (the Governor does the declaring) shall
be committed by any person or group or organi-
zation before such consultation (the Governor
has "reasonable opportunity" to consult with the
disputing parties) is formally terminated by the
governor, it shall be the duty of the governor to
take such action under the laws of this state
or of the United States as he shall deem neces-
sary and appropriate for the due protection of
the public peace, welfare and safety." An anti-
union governor could cripple lawful union activ-
ities with this power. The least that could be-
done would be to set a time limit for "formal
termination."
2. Abolition of the definite penalties provided
for violation of the act or interference with
members of the board in the performance of their
duties. It has been the consistent history of all
attempts at government intervention in labor
disputes that penalties provided cannot in fact
be enforced. Further, success of government me-
diation in collective bargaining has always been
proportional to the degree of voluntary coopera-
tion and whole-hearted support it has evoked.
The setting up of definite penalties can only serve
to impart an aura of threats and compulsion
