Gret iGarbo 's.
The Boilermakers . .
THE 10 YEAR no-strikes contract,
signed by the Screen Actors'
Guild, culminates nearly a fortnight of activity
on the part of the actors themselves but does
nothing to end the struggle of the Federated Mo-
tion Picture Crafts to obtain a closed shop.
The actors gained for themselves what was de-
sired-a closed shop. Whether the signing of the
non-striking pledge was a mistake on the part
of the Guild remains to be seen. On the sur-
face it would seem that the move was a too
hasty one, entered into by an organization thak
has had limited experience in the field of trade
unionism.
The real question arising out of the Hollywood
controversy, however, is the issue of support of
the technicians' and craftsmen's strike, being
conducted by the FMPC, by the actors. In the
early stages of the technicians' walkout, much
heated discussion was evident in the meetings
of the Guild relative to supporting the strike.
The upshot of the situation was the presenta-
tion of its own demands by the Guild.
It seems clear that the victory won by the
Guild was greatly aided by the strike of the
technicians-the painters, boilermakers, scenic
artists, hairdressers, make-up artists, utility
workers and stationary engineers. The employ-
ers were confronted with demands from all sides
and presumably gave in where it would hurt the
least and the interest shown by the star actors in
behalf of the extras and the "bit" players is
commendable. Increased wages were obtained
for the members of both latter categories, largely
because of the insistence of the featured actors
whose salaries are in the higher brackets.
Now the actors, completely unified because of
their other victory m the matter of the closed
shop, are walking through the picket lines of
the technicians, who are still on strike pending
recognition of their demand for a closed shop.
They are not cooperating with the craftsmen de-
spite the many requests for support that have
been made. It seems a queer turnabout for the
stars to insist upon aiding the weaker ones in
their own group and then refuse to aid those
with whom they are to a great extent allied.
This may sprove to be a grave tactical error
as far as the Guild is concerned, for surely the
craftsmen will not support the Guild in any
undertaking if the Guild now refuses to stand
back of them. The Guild, in agreeing not to
strike, has signed away its most effective weapon
and, in refusing to support the present strike
of the FMPC, has disassociated itself from a
powerful ally in any other venture it may choose
to undertake.
Nor can the Guild readily say that the reason
for their non-support was the suddenness with
which the strike was called. Certainly no active
trade union can refuse to act a week after a
strike has been called on the ground that they
were not informed of the strike at the time
of its inception. A greater reason than this will
have to be advancer'd to exp1lin what gnnears to

The Peace Of Death
To the Editor:
On Sunday, May 9, Mr. Cobey, Jr., wrote a
love letter to Miss Franking, who I understand,
was playing first base on Palmer Field. Since
Mr. Cobey is a member of the R.O.T.C., the love
in the letter was not for Miss Franking but for
Peace with a capital P. We all know that soldiers
rarely appreciate the human individual--even
when a charming co-ed, possibly mother of
soldiers or mother of possible soldiers-when
Peace is at stake.
Mr. Cobey writes that the R.O.T.C. boys do
not roar and fume about Peace. Of course not.
To do so would be both unShakespearean and
against orders. Strange as it may seem, says
Mr. Cobey, the R.O.T.C. boys are not militarists.
They aren't even pretending to be heroes; and
Mr. Cobey is "willing to wager that there isn't a
single man in the unit that would relish having
an arm or a leg removed by a shell."
We all know that the R.O.T.C. boys are not
militarists-hardly a one is an expert in military
matters or imbued with the spirit of militarism.
Of course not. The R.O.T.C. boys are auto-
matons. And of course they cannot even pre-
tend to be heroes. Of course not. Because they
indeed are automatons of a negligible efficiency
Furthermore-and now I am speaking as an
intellectual-we see no reason why the R.O.T.C.
boys' should relish losing an arm or a leg by
means of a shell: That should be undue partial-
ity. We are not capable of guessing an auto-
maton's preferences, but, if you will allow me-
I suggest the newest thing out: An extra special
poison gas-made to order. If you obey me,
dear automatons, you will succeed in eliminating
partiality either as toward your limbs or toward
the various kinds of shells (sea shells, nut shells,
egg shells, cannon shells, or tortoise shells).
But seriously. Automaton or no automaton, I
object to anyone being gypped. If the R.O.T.C.
boys are shouldering twelve extra hours without;
receiving credit for most of them, then I must
state very definitely that either Mr. Cobey has
made a very inefficient report, (as he has ac-
tually done, moreover, by omitting the element
of time for the 12 "extra" hours) or else that,
the R.O.T.C. automatons are being gyped.
The official Announcement, under the heading
"Military Science and Tactics," says: "Academic
credit is given for this work." Furthermore, to
make sure that the automatons get at least a
handful of credits for graduation, the Announce-
ment state that: "Elections are for a period of
four semesters . . . Once-elected, a group becomes
a prerequisite to graduation unless the student
is formally discharged from this obligation.
While taking the advanced group (last four se-
mesters), members of the R.O.T.C. receive pay-
ment of commutation of subsistence from the
government, which amounts to about $200.00."
I did not find an official limit to the number of
R.O.T.C. credits obtainable toward graduation.
Most of, the courses are for two hours' credit.
One-eighth of your total credits, dear automaton,
should not be at all too many. Indeed, you
leave the University an eighth of a soldier-and,
I am afraid, not much more.
But I also object to someone trying to gyp
me. I deny that R.O.T.C. boys are R.O.T.C.-ee-
ing in order to preserve Peace. I believe the
lend of R.O.T.C. Peace that is being prepared for
it scarcely better than the Peace of death-or the
kind of peace that shall not be disturbed while
the silent guns and gases do the killing.
-Louis Deutsch.
'Aiding' A Worthy Cause
To the Editor:
Kindly publish in the next ''Forum" the fol-
lowing, answer to Dr. Bernard Heller's statements
which were printed in last Saturday's (May 15th)
issue of The Daily.

If "Poland's Jewry fares no better than
Reich's" then how is it to be explained, that a
goodly portion of the 60,000 Jews that were
obliged to leave Germany found refuge in Poland;
and that in general Poland accumulated the
highest percentage of Jews?
Of course, "one third of Poland's 3,000,000 Jews
live at a subsistence level," but so does the one-
third of America's 3,000,000 Jews.
All the statements are either so exaggerated
or incorrect that they really do not deserve refu-
tation.
Of the Jewish "parochial" schools in Poland,
as Rabbi Heller refers to them, I had better not
speak at all, so as. not to embarrass him.
The Jewish question in Poland is too compli-
cated to be discussed in this or any daily paper.
Poland alone is not responsible for the situation
as it is now. The world's chanceries know all
about it and there is no danger of an immediate
world catastrophe on account of it.
The Jewish question in Poland is primarily an
economical one and it has been poisoned, not
so much by the Polish nationalist (or "fascist," as
Rabbi Heller calls them) but by meddling of the
American Jewry.
To the largest extent, the whole question is a
case of unrequited love: the Jews were really
persecuted in Russia and are really persecuted in
Qermany, but they love Russia and Germany just
the same; Poland for ages offered hospitality and
even privileges to the Jews, but gained hatred in
return. So it is a psychological question as well,
and psychiatrists have a name for it.
Dr. Heller's interview and the picture-lectures
all over the country, one of which we have had
(at the Natural Science Auditorium) on May
10th, are in connection with the drive for funds

A Last Review
By GIOVANNI GIOVANNINI
I7 HE LAST ISSUE of Contemporary merits spe-
cial attention for a number of vigorously
critical essays and reviews. Mr. Kirschbaum's
analysis of Auden's recent poems is more than
an excellent review, it is an illuminating essay
on the difficulty of the "socially minded but in-
tellectually frustrated" poets of the modern
scene. In a review Miss Folkoff (whose poem by
the way is unusually good) presents an admirable
exposure of the method of Gide's much discussed
attack on Russia; but a question which Miss
Folkoff does not answer remains, in what light
shall we now view Gide's new eulogies of the
U.S.S.R.? The other reviewers, however, are not
always as careful. Mr. Martin, for instance, in
reviewing Silone's novel goes out of his way to
say, "It is significant that such a novel should
be written by an Italian anti-fascist. The im-
plicit conclusion is that Fascist Italy is sterile,
that its literature must be written by revolu-
tionary exiles,"-a type of logic which makes the
reader very melancholy.
Mr. Warshow in "Peace, It's Wonderful" justly
questions the value of any peace movement un-
less it is tied up with a clearly defined social and
economic program. Rightly contending that
strength is found in a well grounded intellectual
attitude, Mr. Warshow pungently criticizes the
luke-warm emotionalism which haphazardly
brings together a mass of people for an hour
a year. It is precisely this emotionalism, unpro-
tected and vague, which is tapped by pro-war
criers when the occasion arises, and which at
present is a sort of salve to many who think they
are doing their bit by listening to a speech
against war. But it is cheering to note there is a
critical attitude, and a highly commendable one.
Contemporary is featuring Mr. Neal's "The
College Newspaper," an attempt at defining a
delicate thing, the ideal campus paper. The
ideal is based on the fulfillment of mutual obliga-
tions of the paper and the school authorities.
Mr. Neal is aware that both parties can abuse
power; still he believes that in the long run
complete freedom in reporting will be best, and
that censorship is insidious; the instances he
gives of such practice seem to indicate he is
right. But who is to judge of bad reporting?
Mr. Neal argues that the Board in Control can
always fire a bad reporter or editor; but he also
says, the members of the Board in Control
"know nothing whatsoever about newspapers,
and in most cases even less about college news-
papers." Well, the ideal campus paper is a deli-
cate thing, and no one wonders if Mr. Neal
assumes it is tough-grained.
THE EDITORS of Contemporary deserve praise
for giving generous space to the problems of
education. This issue contains a reply to Mr.
Macklin's "Preface to a Program." Mr. Cham-
bers charges Mr. Macklin with ignoring the dem-
ocratic society as part of our educational prow
gram, neglecting to state the means to his end,
misunderstanding the historical approach, hav-
ing succumbed to "the metaphysical pathos of
the idea of oneness" in education, etc. , In short,
Mr. Macklin has failed miserably. But actually
what Mr. Macklin advocates is no "new authori-
tarianism" (what fears we have); nor does he
advocate the discarding of science and history;
what Mr. Macklin recommends is an approach
based on philosophical training, giving the stu-
dent not a headful of facts, but a highly critical
mind ready to meet the problems of a society
democratic or otherwise. Instead of overhauling
the system as he should, Mr. Chambers recom-
mends a system geared to the "needs of present
society." This sounds very much like "accom-
modating one's self to the situation," the sort of
conformism which is basically vicious. We know
Mr. Chambers does not really subscribe to this;
but we wonder if Mr. Chambers really thinks
democracy can be taught "as it is" by a genetic
approach to it; one may as well teach morality
by a course in the history of custom. Mr. Cham-
bers, like Mr. Macklin, desires a basic unity in
our system; yet Mr. Chambers ardently believes
he will achieve unity by the system as it stands,
provided it is given a few injections; the result is,
he never answers Mr. Macklin. Mr. Macklin
definitely says that the historical approach to

anything is essentially history and nothing more.
Moreover, he contends that "to make the past
contemporary is never to have perspective; is, in
effect, to pluck out our intellect." Exactly how
will Mr. Chambers make the historical approach
otherwise without a basic philosophical, ethical,
and logical training? How shall the student judge
as to what is right or wrong about the "needs
of present society"? Mr. Chambers discusses in
terms of society, phenomena, problems, and sus-
pension bridges; Mr. Macklin discusses in terms
of man whose mind has been abused on the
assumption that youth knows what it wants. Now
Mr. Chambers like many others still assumes
this; Mr. Chambers should be conscious that it is
precisely this assumption which has aroused crit-
icism of the system; by the historical approach
he invokes, this assumption appears untenable.
By discarding this assumption Mr. Chambers
fears a "new authoritarianism, an historical fail-
ure" (his fear is unfounded). And the upshot is,
Mr. Chambers is too sanguine about the histor-
ical argument; we firmly believe this argument
has earned a rest. In conclusion, then, Mr.
Chambers admits that the historical and sci-
entific approaches have been mishandled; there-
fore, is it not very possible that the mishandling
is the result of the lack of training Mr. Macklin
analyzes? Mr. Macklin has not been answered,
and we hope the editors of Contemporary will
continue being generous to this']important prob-'
lem.
Mussolini was quoted as saying last week
that, "We have celebrated the empire's first an-
niversary under the triple sign of glory, might
and peace-peace for us and for all if they wish."

THEATRE'
. I
'Tonight At 3:30'
By LEON OVSIEW
For those who like their satire
and irony touched with sentimental
delicacy, their wit seasoned with just
the slightest dash of ingratiating
suggestiveness, their dialogue brittily
verbose, and their plots utterly in-.
consequential, Tonight at 8:30 should'
prove deliciously satisfying. The
audience at last evening's opening re-
sponded almost eagerly to the not 3
too subtle persuasions of Robert-
Henderson's otherwise skilful pro-
duction. Ann Arbor is not used to┬░
this sort of theatrical fare.
Noel Coward's particular version of
the Comedy of Manners formula has,
none of the robust wit which is the
lasting strength of Restoration com+
edy, but it cannot be denied that it,
does possess a certain charm of1
manner and a superbly gifted obser-c
vation. His is not a "fairyland inI
which all is wit and whimsy," as
Clifton Fadiman declares in the re-1
print which is incorporated into theI
program; it is a world which does
exist in the very upper reaches of ouri
society. It is this world which Noelt
Coward knows so supremely well, andt
which he reproduces for us with al.{
realism which is the more valuable j
artistically for its good-humored sa-1
tire.
Tonight at 8:30 is a group of three
plays: a comedy, a sentimental "slice-
of-life" tragedy, and another comedy.
The first. Hands Across the Sea is a
beautifully directed scene of utters
madness centering about the im-
mortal device of mistaken identity;
but as a dramatic picture of nosilyr
confused and bewildered hospitality
it is magnificient. Coward's dialogue
is rarely better; it has lines you willt
remember to tell at the next party.f
This reviewer enjoyed it completely.t
Still Life is Coward in the role of
the realist: yet here too a delicious I
low comedy enlivens a rather in-
adequately treated bit of sentimental
pathos engendered by a hopeless af-1
fair of illicit passion, which, in thef
true Coward manner, has its begin-'
ning in the merest of accidents. To
this reviewer it seemed it least suref
in its effect; even the remarkables
dramatic craftsmanship of Coward
cannot keep it from dragging.
Ways and Means is again, thea
comedy of dialogue. And it is mar-T
velously funny dialogue, touched wtih
the ironic spirit of one who would
rather laugh at life than involve him-
self in it.
I think you will like these come-
dies, and perhaps even the tragedy;
if you will allow yourself to enter into
Coward's mood of satiric imperson-
ality, being sure to allow him tot
weave it for you through the mediumt
of his own incomparable dialogue. r

Maytime
AT THE MICHIGANP
Splendid photography, resource- r
ful adaptation and Jeanette Mc-
Donald's most brilliant performance v
of her career make this translation b
of Sigmund Romberg's lovely op- i
eretta one ofsthe outstanding hits of e
the movie season. From start to
finish, Maytime is as beautiful as its
name; it has comedy, romance and
pageantry in the standard Hollywood
manner; it even has drama, but most &
of all it has a melancholy nineteenth g
century beauty that renders it ir- S
resistible.a
The story is simple and scarcely N
novel; the prima donna who sacri- R
fices the man she loves to marry the 2
manager to whom she owes her suc- f
cess, but the splendid and restrained o
acting of. John Barrymore as the i
jealous husband makes it powerful s
and convincing. Jeanette herself iso
equally effective in the heavy and
light scenes, and her singing, un-
marred by the tendency toward
toothiness which has annoyed some
of her admirers in the past, is at itsV
supberb best.
Nelson Eddy is just a little out of1
character as the light-hearted Amer-
ican in Louis Napoleon's Paris, but ing
the more serious sequences, and espe-t
cially in the opera scenes, he delivers9
magnificently. His rendition ofd
"Sweethearts," chief item in the
Romberg original score, is worth the
walk to the theatre by itself. a
Aiding in the staging of the made-r
up opera with the unpronouncable
name, was adapted from a Tschai-F
kowski symphony, is the Don Cos-
sack Chorus, which Ann Arbor au-
