In 'Uiiform
T HIS COLUMN and Bonth Wil-
liams went to the mat some five
months ago about the Police Department.
Bonth protested, you remember, that it was
ironic for the students to be asked for contribu-
tions for the police radio transmitter, since stu-
dents were receiving harsh treatment at the
hands of the police. It was our point at that
time that many a student had cause to be grate-
ful to the police for discretion in handling their
pranks or temporary alcoholic elevation.
We still believe that the police have been
very decent on many occasions when they might
have been more severe. But this makes only the
more embarrassing the series, of incidents which
have recently arisen in which the police have
apparently acted with inexcusable brutality.
This is not a feud between The Daily and the
Police Department. It is not a crusade. It is
not even primarily the concern of students. It
is a matter for the citizens of Ann Arbor, and
we shall consider our part in the matter closed
when the citizens have caused the case to be
heard in public and have been informed whether
brutality has been used in the past and whether
it will be a part of police tactics in the future.
Above all, in this instance, The Daily is func-
tioning, not as a student newspaper, but as a
community newspaper. The editors believe that
it is to the best interests of the community as a
whole that these cases should be revealed in the
cold light of publicity. It is not a question of the
treatment which student offenders receive from
the police. It is a question of the treatment
which the police accord to underprivileged, de-
fenseless citizens of Ann Arbor.
The instance in which a custodian working for
the University was assaulted by the police has
prompted many who remembered previous ex-
amples of brutality to come forth. It may be,

as the police assert, the the custodian, under the
influence of liquor, used abusive language. This
abusive language, especially in the presence of
children, as the police point out, should of course
be stopped. But not stopped with brutal blows
on a defenseless little man, not stolped with
continued brutal blows after the man has be-
come insensible, not stopped with blows in the
car while the poor man was sitting between
two policemen, and then-to add insult to literal
injury-not by fining the man five dollars for
resisting an office, in addition to his other
fines. Finally, from Saturday, when he was ar-
rested, until Monday, the man remained in jail
without medical attention.
Were it alone, this instance would pass as an
indiscretion of a single man, regrettable, but
never to be repeated. Instead, the instance
brought up other examples. Witnesses in other
cases have proffered testimony to The Daily,
and the editors will be glad to turn all evidence
rr in t + authnriies.if and when thev take

tality means more than just the episode of Chase,
and it is the concern of every Ann Arbor citizen
to know whether such methods are in regular
use by its Police Department.
Chme The Public EnemV
To the Editor:
At the risk of wearing out my welcome in this
column, I must write a few words to commend
the courage and zeal of our local gendarmerie.
I refer to the recent arrest of that desperate
character, Fred Chase. I know this fiend, and
knowing him I marvel that one lone officer was
able to take him in without the aid of a
Tommy gun.
Chase has worked on the campus for some
time and because of his giant, muscular pro-
portions, his foolhardy courage and inherent
bloodthirstiness, he has instilled in every jan-
itor's heart a feeling of deepest awe. We "yes"
him continually, and I, for one, make it, "yes,
Mr. Chase." I never saw him intoxicated, but
the mere thought of such a spectacle causes me
to tremble. Yes, truly, an officer who would bring
in such a person singlehanded has reached the
very acme of intrepidity. What if he did muss
up the prisoner somewhat? Chase is young (only
53) and he will soon be well again and the terror
of the city.
I feel moved, also, to commend the attitude of
the Police Commissioner. He is quoted as saying,
"They didn't kill anyone yet." That "yet" speaks
volumes. I believe that it is the duty of a
police commissioner to back up his officers in
all that they do. I think, too, that a commis-
sioner should be lenient toward gambling devices,
especially if they are in laundry agencies. An-
other thing that I like about some police de-
partments is their leniency toward business
men and wealthy citizens as well as toward relief
people who have no money with which to
pay fines. After all, the underpaid workers with
steady jobs, which they have to hang on to,
should pay all of the fines. Hugo said that the
law was for rich and poor alike. A rich man
was just as likely to be prosecuted as a poor
man for stealing a loaf of bread. He did not
mention intoxication and violation of traffic
In conclusion, I wish to offer again my hear-
tiest commendations to those noble men who
are insuring the peace and safety of this city.
I can assure the rich and the paupers of this
fair community that tliey may sleep peacefully
in the knowledge that tiey will be amply pro-
tected from pin boys, custodians, and. all such
riff raff. -Will Canter,
Dark Age Relics
To the Editor:
A debt of gratitude is due to The Daily for
summarizing in Saturday's edition for those of
us who are not constant readers of the School
of Education Bulletin, the most recent thought
on the improvement of our public school meth-
ods. I am pained to note however that the
author would still retain (in a sub-section of
Division Four) the "organized bodies of subject
matter." When will some one have the courage
boldly to eliminate all such distressing relics of
the Dark Ages, and allow our boys and girls to
enjoy without hindrance the sweet symphony of
Education (accompanied by Aesthetic Dancing
and Dominoes)?
-A Bit Old-Fashioned,
Hi se Laugh
To the Editor:
Holding our noses and repressing a horse
laugh, let us suggest that W. C. Cobey, Jr., en-
roll in a course in American History before he
graduates. Just what relationship exists between
well trained men and the preservation of peace
we can't guess. If Mr. Cobey is referring to the
preservation of peace in the United States when
he points out that "they expend valuable time
and effort training themselves . . . to see that
Peace is Preserved," let us remind Mr. Cobey
that, with the American Revolution excepted,
the United States has been the aggressor in

every war it has fought. If, on the other hand,
he is referring to the preservation of World
Peace, let us remind Mr. Cobey that, at the
present time, a Civil War is devouring Spain,
that last year Italy raided Ethiopia, and that six
years before, Japan assaulted China.
Finally, Mr. Cobey would have done well to
point out just what "emergency" existed in the
past war.
-William Randolph's Hearse.
Here Comes Carter
This little comedy marks the last appearance
of the unfortunate Ross Alexander in Ann Arbor,
having been made several months before his
recent suicide and held up partly on that
account by Warner Brothers.
It is not a very good picture, even as a short
matinee. It makes no pretense at plausibility,
uses gags that are stale by now, feature songs
that were off the radio long ago, and combines
gangster-adventure with humor in a prett
amateurish sort of way. Anne Nagel, Alexan-
der's widow, whose appearance adds a further
touch of irony to the film, is hardly convincing,
and Ross's own breezy manner is overdone in
many places.

B EE AH-- -B lo n th W ilia m s
THE RUMOR to the effect that within a few
years half the population of the country
will be living on wheels is stretching probability
to the breaking point. Trailers are all very well
in short doses, but even the super deluxe 1937
models have their draw backs.
In the first place, there is no such thing as an
odorless toilet; in the second place, shaving in
a basin of cold water is not conducive to a healthy
frame of mind; in the third place, it becomes
annoying when you have to open six different
compartments to brew a cup of coffee; in the
fourth place, you can't bathe; in the fifth place
you're always cramped; in the sixth place you
have to have a strong stomache to ride in a
trailer on any but the best roads; in the seventh
place, trailers and their occupants are at the
mercy of the places they visit, in the eighth place,
people are becoming more and more hostile to
the "wanderers"; in the ninth place, these roll-
ing palaces are not as inexpehsive as' popularly
supposed; and in the tenth place, old Uncle
Sam is likely to camp down on them with a
healthy tax.
On the other hand moveable dog kennels do
have their good points. You can pull them along
on good roads between 50 and 60 if you have a
mind to, you can sit and play poker while you're
traveling, you can have lost of fun playing house
with the thing and figuring out how the beds
work. They're infinitely better than a tent, and
once you've paid the installment company off
trailers are a cheap means of travel.
* * * *
B UT THEY ARE NOT super comfort person-
ified. You're in grave danger of cracking
your noggin a resounding thump every time
you rise to your full height and you are in equal
danger of falling forward into the sink or back-
ward onto the stove every time you venture from
your seat while under way.
Here's the picture: you pull into some gas
station which says TRAILER CAMP about dusk
in dire need of a shower, pay the man 75 cents
or a dollar, and unhitch-no mean task in itself.
You plug in your electric lights from a nearby
switch box, dab a little cold water on your face,
and then begin to worry about dinner.
There are other trailers a few feet apart
on each side so you decide to take the car and
buy supper, just this once. Home after dark,
the trailer seems a little damp and you find that
the new arrival in camp has disconnected your
lights to make room for his own plug.
The situation promptly taken care of you de-
cide the trailer is damp and build a fire in the
stove. Now you're tired and bed is the ticket.
Well, why don't you climb right in?
First you have to clean up all the truck that
you've collected during the day and stuff it away.
Then you dive down into a lower locker for a
blanket, up in a cupboard for another, and wish
in vain for sheets. Your next move is to pry the
bd out into its proper form, an operation which
is usually frought with a good deal of perspira-
tion and profanity.
You lay the blankets tenderly on the bed,
making a mental note that you'll do all this
earlier tomorrow, take a trip, out to the little
house in the woods, and then climb in between
the blankets. You immediately realize that the
bed is too short when you whack your big toe on
what was the dinner table, hunch up into a ball
and spend the night dreaming of monsters and
Y OU AWAKE somewhat chilly in the morn to
hear the victrola in the trailer from Maine
beating out "The Love Bug." You think you will
put on clean clothes but upon considering that
you will have to lift the stove, reach through
the ice box, and probably bark your shin, you
decide that what you had on yesterday will do
well enough.
Then comes the morning plunge. You pour
out about an inch and a half of water from
the tank which you pumped full the night before
into a tin basin. It is ice cold. You set it on the

stove for a minute, decide that you're a sissy,
and sprinkle a little on your face. Then you
rub lustily with a towel and pretend you don't
notice the black smudges.
You do need a shave, but then, let it go. Do
your face good, you say, though you look like a
All set for brealfast, now what'lI we have.
Say, you know we can buy breakfast for a quar-"
ter and save a lot of time, let's do that. O.K.
It being Joe's turn to drive, you climb reso-
lutely back into your cozy little home after strug-
gling to rehitch the damn thing and start off
with a jolt. Sitting in the front gets monot-
onous so you start a poker game in the break-
fast ook.
* * * *
YOU ARE JUST about to open on a pair of
kings when the ship starts to rock and sway.
You fly up in the air, the chips scatter on the
floor, and you quake with fear. But it's all
right, the road was just a little bumpy there.
You get the idea that perhaps a drink might
hit the spot, but decide that it's not worth the
trouble after one of the boys is almost drowned
trying to down a bottle of beer. Noon rolls
around, but to save time you think it'll be wiser to
pick up a bite at the next town.
It's your turn to drive and you wheel on by
yourself for a couple of hours while the boys back
behind are betting and calling. Driving is really
the easiest part of trailer life-as long as you
remenber when you're passing that the big red
barn behind you is a part of your vehicle and
has to get around too.'

May Festival
A Review
Philadelphia Orchestra, conduct-
ed by Eugene Ormandy, provided a
sumptuous opening for the 44th an-
nual May Festival, in Hill Auditorium
last evening. Mme. Flagstad was
heard in the "Leise, leise' 'aria from
Der Freischutz, with "Du bist der
Lenz" from the first act of Die Walk-
ure as an encore, and in the "Immo-
lation" and closing scene from Got-
terdammerung. The Orchestra played
two Bach transcriptions by Lucien
Cailliet, Debussy' La Mer, and the
Cailliet transcription of Moussorg-
sky's Pictures at an Exhibition,
Mine. Plagstad sang here in recital
last fall,Fand at that time her glor-
iously rich voice and superb musi-
cianship seemed unimprovable. Be-
cause her voice and type of artistry
are inherently dramatic, however, the
full effect of her singing is appreciat-
ed only when it is supported by the
sonorous, varied voices of the orches-
tra, rather than by a lone piano. Any-
thing more consummate than hei
richly conceived and perfectly
achieved interpretation of Wagner'L
music is hard to envision.
The Orchestra, which also playec
an important part in the Getter.
danmmeriing selection, performed
throughout the evening with a high
degree of technical accuracy and sen-
sitive feeling. While comparisons
may be "odorous" they are still the
basis of all artistic judgments, and
it was obvious last night that the
breath-taking luxuriousness of tone'
and unbelievable perfection of detail
which the Philadelphia Orchestra
achieves under Stokowski was lack-
ing. In fairness it might be pointed
out that at times such eternal sweep
and grandeur has seemed to over-
burden certain pieces of music, and
surely there was no fault to be found
with Mr. Ormandy's conceptions of
the various numbers on the program.
The effect of each composition was
clearly and decisively brought out.
In the Pictures at An Exhibition par-
ticularly, the colorful, definitive, and
humorous qualities of the tonal paint-
ing were epertly displayed. In this
work, also, was seen the supreme ar-
tistry of many of the players of the
Mr. Cailliet's transcriptions dis-
played a brilliant use of the modern
orchestra, combined with a sympa-
thetic understanding of the original
intentions of the composers.
Program Notes
(Friday, May 14, 8:30 pni.)
Academic Festiva Overture-
Brahms. In 1879 th honorary de-
gree of Doctor of Philosophy was con-
ferred upon Brahms by the University
of Breslau. As an acknowledgement
of the honor-his thesis, so to speak
--Brahms wished to compose some
pieces of music of a breadth and dig-
nity in keeping with a doctorate.
After considering a great symphony
crammed with thematic involution,
an oratorio upon some solemn sub-
ject, and an a capella chorus of im-
pressive polyphonic profundity, he
rejected these ideas and decided to
write-an overture made out of stu-
ient songs, classic of the German
The fruit of this audacious decision
is not, however, a routine .collection
of boisterous airs, but a, symphonic,
)rganically developed piece of cus-
tomary Brahms erudition. After an
original introductory theme, three
student songs of varying nature are
presented in succession: the chorale-
like "We Had Built a Stately House,"
he more lyrical "Father of the Coun-
try," and then the bit of student hil-
arity known as the "ox Song." After
some development and restatement
of this material, the Overture closes
with the triumphant singing of the
universally popular "Gaudeamus Ig-

Scene and Aria, "Ah, Perfido!"-
Beethoven. In addition to its musical
interest, this scene and Aria is of
value as an outstanding example of
a musical form which is now but
rarely used, but which was once quite
popular. In early operatic termin-
ologyit wasacustomary tosclasslas
"Recitative and Aria" those solos,
with their preceding statement of the
situation, which were essentially lyric
or reflective in character; those of a
more agitated, dramatic mood were
termed "Scene and Aria." Occasion-
ally, as in this classic instance, the
term was applied to detached, non-
operatic movements.
Also, the "Ah, Perfido!" is one of
the few compositions heard these days
from the earliest and less strikingly'
original period of Beethoven's career.
It was written at Prague in 17961
(about the same time as the first
piano sonata) for -an Italian prima
donna, and is based on the old theme
of the wronged maiden who is torn
between the desire for vengeance and
her unremitting passion for her false
