NIGHT EDITOR: ROBERT WEEKS
The Nature
Of Trotskyism .. .
TO MOST STUDENTS, the Moscow
trials were at first interesting only
because of. the exotic Oriental flavor of their
drama. The subject of Trotskyism was waging
a determined struggle with monarchism and an-
archism for last place among student political
interests. This status had been, for almost a
decade, the natural one for the minute Fourth
International.
Today, however, Trotskyism is receiving the
alert scrutiny of a great number of progressives
who only a few months ago were content to
view with baffled unconcern what they believed
was solely a dispute within communism. Thou-
sands of columns have been written about the
Moscow trials, leading intellectuals of the United
States have plunged very deeply into the subject,
the Committee for the Defense of Leon Trotsky
has twice become a dueling ground for liberals,
a municipal election in Minneapolis has had
Trotskyism as its most significant issue, and even
in Michigan's auto unionization drive Trotskyism
has been a factor.
What has brought this changed attitude to-
ward Trotskyism? The most logical answer is
that a. change in the character of Trotskyism has
brought a change in the attitude toward it. To
explain this change we must first of all look
to the Moscow trials, which furnished a new defi-
nition of Trotskyism from which the conflict has
sprung.
The Moscow trials, in essence, asserted that
Trotskyism had ceased to be a positive political
movement but instead, had become the property
of an unprincipled group which, through degen-
eration, had substituted destruction of other
political movements for the construction of its
own. Assassination, sabotage, and an alliance
with fascist forces were charged.
Consideration of the most important aspects
of the trials-the correctness of their judgment
-was for a long time obscured by certain legal
and psychological aspects. But today an opin-
ion can be offered, and it is that Trotskyism is
guilty substantially as charged.
Mauritz Hallgren, formerly an editor of The
Nation and editorial writer on the Baltimore Sun,
has offered an able logical argument of Trotsky's
guilt in his letter of resignation from the Com-
mittee for the Defense of Leon Trotsky. The ac-
tual verbatim report of the proceedings has been
even stronger evidence, as Malcolm Cowley of
The New Republic has so eloquently testified.
Although the recent Mexican "investigation"
was unable to prove or disprove anything of
importance, the undubteg] unwillingness or
inability of Trotsky to produce the vital evidence
necessary for any valid judgment, and the will-
ingness of the inquisitors to work without these
tools, as revealed by Carleton Beal's letter of
resignation from the committee, indicated that
if further hard facts are to be introduced: they
will not be introduced by Trotsky and his friends.
The most convincing evidence of all, however,

A
Liberal Education
To the Editor:
I don't know Mr. Julian H. Orr, '37, but if
he represents the "true liberal appeal to reason,"
it proves that I am certainly not in his camp and
damn glad of it! In the Forum of May 14, he
beheads me a great array of liberal artillery. Out-
wardly it looks like a neat clean job, but I would
have wished for a more talented executioner.
In my letter of May 6 I spoke with strong sin-
cerity: therefore I am "emotional." I projected
the problem of fascism into later years: for this
necessary perspective I am "irrational." Well,
everybody knows the liberal. Under an appeal
for reason and restraint, he puts a blanket over
the fire to keep the smoke from spreading the
danger signal. His is the unemotional approach:
Whisper, wrap your feet in silent sandals and
ever so quietly spread the alarm on muted violins.
Then to bed. Amen.
Now I propose to show that Mr. Orr needs
much instruction:
Point one: Mr. Orr needs to know more about
Spain when he .says "What assurance is there
that the Loyalists will establish a democratic
government?" Answer: The Loyalists don't have
to establish a democratic government because
that was already established by an election last
February! The People's Front was elected and
is functioning today. Election means democratic
and I say again "students in Spain are de-
fending those same democratic principles which
we so blandly inherited," the democracy of the
ballot.
Point two: Mr. Orr counters my "Fascism is
death to culture" with "This would indicate that
culture is dependent upon the political system,
a belief which cannot be supported." Listen
again: Culture may not be dependent upon a
political system in that it can definitely be cre-
ated in actual conformity to that system, but
the dependence is still there! When Fascism says'
you can't read Heine or Thomas Mann, I repeat
that Fascism is death to culture and your most
elate rationalism never alters the fact that
you can't read Heine or Thomas Mann!
Skipping his paragraphs 4 and 5, (which have,-
nothing to do with the problem at hand), I offer
point number 3: Mr. Orr rebukes me for speak-
ing of "cultural evaluation" because of the "ap-
peal to our desire to feel ourselves to be cultured
students" (!), adding, that I appeal also "to the
prime instinct for self-preservation." Perfect.
That's just what I do mean! If Mr. Orr doesn't
feel included in the category of cultured stu-
dents, let him not imagine resentment of others!
He paints me as a barker trying to put one over
by saying "You're cultured, fellows, now listen."
The liberal is congenitally suspicious to well-
meaning. I do appeal to the cultural nobility
of students, I do appeal to their prime instincts!
I want no intellectual subterfuge. But somehow
I don't strike it off with Mr. Orr. Just what does
he resent?
Point 4: I did not say to take my word that
we must "defeat the revels hi order to forestall"
the loss of those precious values. I say take the
word of history! See what happened when fas-
cism spread from German to Austria in '34 and
then to Greece and now touching Roumania! No,
don't take my word; just watch the world, Mr.
Orr, and apply its warnings.
I am accused of pulling an "atrocity act by
mentioning the DeFalla incident, a true, record-
ed event. Here it is difficult for me not to be
Jitter with a man like Orr, who, soaked in sus-
picion, (labelled "reason") spears me again by
his twisted immersion in the "will to find out."
I suggest he go to Spain and find out.
The last paragraph is in true liberal tradi-
tion, "I am not a fascist. I-object-to intervene."
If you're not a fascist, you must show a consistent
energy against the most remote encroachments
of Fascism, you should be an ally of democracy
even if it's not in your back yard! Nobody wants
you to hang around. If you're not for or against,
then get off the field. Don't be a mock-warrior!
I don't know your politics, Mr. Orr, but all I know
is that you have a disease peculiar to liberalism:
you interchange curses with cheers. In short,
your guise of reason and democratic principles
is a fraud. Those colors are pu on and when
they come off you'll be revealed asone who
builds up a gigantic defense when it could be
put simply as "I don't care either was so I'll take

pot-shots at both sides." Well, it don't go. Such
"reason," liberal or otherwise, equals zero.
-Norman RIosten, Grad.

BENEATH ****
**** I~ T ALL
By Bonth William -
AS LONG as the local police commission acted
so drastically in suspending for four days the
two protectors of the public safety for their part
in the brutal beating of 53-year-old Fred Chase,
it would have been better had they gone the
whole way and showed they really meant it by
slapping both officers lightly on the wrist.
BETTY PENCE, sophomore town girl who
was one of the complaining witnesses against
Patrolman Herman Suma, parked her car across
from the Publications Building shortly after the
whole police mess had been stirred up
When she came out her auto was wedged
in at the curb by other parked cars. A passer-by,
noticing her plight, called to Officer Suma who
was nearby and asked him to help in "shoving
one of the cars.
Herr Suma growled an appropriate remark to
the effect that the lady might look elsewhere
for aid and stalked indignantly away.
ALL OF WHICH and a lot more, which must
remain sub rosa, gentle readers, is to put ye
gulpers of the amber foam on your guard,
because in the back of my mind and in the
front of the minds of at least one member of
the local constabulary is the idea that hencefor-
ward students are going to toe the mark or
else.
In other words from now on little if any len-
iency will be shown brew quaffers who return
home unsteadily, or are inclined to burst forth
into a melody en route.
However, one parting shot. There are in the
neighborhood of thirty policemen on the Ann
Arbor police force, and in all fairness to the
department I think it shrould be made clear that
by far the greater number of these are darn
fine, loyal, decent men who would go out of their
way to be courteous and considerate.
Only a small minority are guilty of the blanket
charge of brutality which has been levelled
against the entire force.
* ** *
AND NOW something that I've wanted to do
for a long time. Of all the University people
that Old Bonth has come in contact with during
his four years on the campus, one man stands
head and shoulders above the rest as a regular
guy. He is Bud Rea.
Bud is the only faculty man I've ever found
who could look at matters in the same light as
an undergraduate. He has a sense of humor that
would choke a horse. He's utterly frank about
himself and all his dealings with students. He's
efficient and businesslike, overwhelmed with
work, yet he always has time to drop everything
and chat with any of his numerous friends who
drop in to discuss everything from the weather
to the auto ban.
Few people know Bud's past history or they'd
see far better just why it is he understands
the machinations and perplexities of students a
well as he does.,
Bud graduated from Michigan early in the
'20's after one of the most auspicious senior years
ever enjoyed by any son of the Maize and Blue.
He captained the basketball team, was Sachem
of Michigamua, and president of the senior class.
Not since Bud's time has there been another man
who enjoyed such widespread campus popularity.
A successful banker in Erie, Pa., Bud returned
to Michigan in 1930 to aid in the investment de-
partment of the University and was later trans-
ferred to the office of the Dean of Students.
I think the job that Bud has disliked most
in his university work has been the unpleasant-
ness which of necessity accompanied the en-
forcement of the auto ban. But he undertook
the work and no one could have handled it
better. His inherent pleasantnes sand a real
knowledge of character, together with a sense
of firm justice have firmly established the auto
ban as a Michigan tradition and Bud as an
A-1 administrator.
Now that my incumbency draws }o a close I
want to take this opportunity tc thank Bud,
not only for the consideration with which he

has always treated me, but also for the decency
which he has continually shown to everyone who
has ever come in contact with him.
I nominate 'for Michigan's Hall of Fame a,
faculty man whose staunch student admirers
number hundreds, Bud Rea-one swell gent.
WAR ADMIRAL goes in the $50,000 Preakness
today at Maryland's renowned Pimlico, and
you speculators who want to pick up a little
loose change will be wise to have a bet riding
on the gallant little fellow who ran away
with the Derby.
Eight horses will probably parade to the post
today with the Admiral an odds on favorite. A
good price on the Riddle colt would be 7/10.
(shades of the French Revolution!), Culture,
What-Have-You will;not veer off the road of
intellectual freedom. History would not agree.
I think there is no freedom without spiritual
freedom; that the division between man and
animal is an infinite chasm. Stalin and the
Spanish Democrats would not agree.
As I see it, Mr. Rosten wants to listen to
soul-stirring music in the Kremlin. He would
turn his back on the West without facing East.
The little Gotterdammerung in Spain has causeel
Mr. Rosten to grow excited over Fascism when
something far more important, philosophically
and economically, is fighting to hold Madrid.
In other words he has missed the to-be-or-not-
to-be of our age: Moscow or immortality. Un-
fortunately for those who have a horror of the
absolute, there is no half-way house; "How like
an angel in apprehension, how like a God" has

Mr. Ormandy resumed his position.
on the podium to play the Unfinished
Symphony of Schubert. Despite a few
"ragged" spots in the orchestra, the
work as a whole was given a most
convincing reading. The fine sonority
and ensemble of the 'cello and bass
sections, a characteristic feature of
this orchestra, was particularly no-
ticeable in the Andante movement.
The cantata, "Spring Rapture" in,
which chorus and orchestra appeared,
is so completely unconvincing mu-
sically that even the fine performance
failed to make it interesting.

Eugene List as soloist brought the
concert to a close. Mr. List displayed
a technique worthy of one much old-

EVENING
By WILLIAM J. LICHTENWANGER
Fortunate are the persons who
were in Hill auditorium last night.
Routinely excellent performances are
many but rare indeed are those in
which the human soul transcends the
innumerable physical difficulties in-
volved in musical expression to pre-
sent with such glowing directness the
message of inspired composers. With
the soloists and with the orchestra,
the technique of expression was sub-
merged in a flow of sheer, soul stir-
ring music. This is not rhapsody.
It is fact.
The glorious melody and delicious
good humor of Mozart, radiant
through the no less genial personal-
ities of Elizabeth Rethberg, Ezio Pin-
za, and Eugene Ormandy, came from
"Se vuol ballare," "Non piu andrai,"
"Crudel, perche finora" from The
Marriage of Figaro, and the Bei man-
nern" duet from The Magic Flute,
with "La ci darem" from Don Gio-
vanni as an encore. Mme. Rethberg
had previously sung Beethoven';
scene and aria, "Oh! Perfido," witt
"Dich, theure Halle" from the seconc
act of Tanihauser in encore, and Mr.
Pinza encored his first group with the
aria, "Il lacerato spirito" from Verdi'.
Simon Boccanegra.
The Orchestra, utterly surpassing
its previous performances here
opened the program with the light-
hearted Academic Festival OverturE
of Brahms, gave an interesting pres-
entation of Liadov's arrangement of
eight Russian folk tunes, and con-
cluded the regular portion of th(
program with as thrilling a perform-
ance of Brahm's Fourth Symphony
as we ever expect to hear. Ther
having answered the audience's ac-
claim in words, Mr. Ormandy playec
three more selections, chosen from
among the many requests-the Bac
Air from the D major Suite, De-
bussy's Clair de lune, and the "Rid(
of the Valkyries" which preludes the
third act of Die Walkure.

SIXTH CONCERT
(Saturday, May 15, 8:30 p.m.)
"Aida," an opera in four acts-
Verdi.aIn the story of Aida,present-
ed to Verdi by Mariette Bey, noted
French Egyptologist, and put int
libretto form by du Cocle and Ghis-
lanzoni, Verdi at last found a librettc
which challenged to the utmost hi;
powers of intensive and unified dra-
matic expression. Probably no othei
opera is any more intense with deep
conflicting emotions, more gorgeous
with pageantry, more colorful, botl
musically and pictorially, than Aida.
The abundance of Oriental pomp anc
splendor, the ancient and mystic rites
of the priesthood, the glorification of
a victorious army, the thwarted pas-
sion of two young lovers, the jealousy
of a princess for a slave, the stubborn
and vengeful patriotism of an Ethio-
