It is important for society to avoid
the neglect of adults, but positively
dangerous for it to thwart the ambition
of youth to reform the world. Only the
schools which act on this belief are ed-
ucational institutions in the best mean-
ing of the term.

Why Are
We Here?. .
AVE YOU EVER SLOUCHED in the
cavernous reference room of the Li-
brary with your economics book open before you
and then wondered, wondered for about ten awful
seconds, "Why the hell am I sitting here studying
the theory of marginal productivity, and why
will I be here tomorrow night reading Dante,
Gabriel, Rossetti or Shakespeare? Or have you
ever slanted up the broad steps of Angell Hall and
suddenly thought, "Why am I going in here to
listen to Reeves talk about Plato or Hyma
talk about Erasmus?"
You probably shrugged your shoulders and
kept on with the routine, or if you are inclined
to be sort of a radical in such matters maybe you
went over to the Parrot for a reviving lemon
coke. Soon you had yourself under control
again and you could go on with the problem
of just how hard you are going to have to work
for your next blue book in order to get the ques-
tion that the professor will ask without having
to study a lot of stuff that he won't ask you
about. You had become again like the snakes
that Ralph Waldo Emerson encountered on his
way to Cambridge in 1834: four snakes that
he likened to an undergraduate, "for they were
gliding up and down a hollow for no purpose that
I could see-not to eat, not for love, but only
gliding." You were only gliding, gliding.
Once you had thought a little about education
and what you had come to Ann Arbor for, but
that was in your freshman year, first semester.
It was then that you had read Newman's "Idea
of a University" and you probably read Huxley's
essay defining a man with a liberal education-
"whose intellect is a clear, cold, logical engine
with all its parts of equal strength and in smooth
working order; ready like a steam engine to be
turned to an kind of work, to forge the anchors
as well as spin the gossamers of the mind ...
It was grand writing, but you soon forgot it,
because you were just then struggling through
geology and you had all of those eras and
epochs to memorize.
If you are like most students, when the cues-

tion of why you are here comes over you in the
reference room or on the steps of Angell Hall,
you shake the question off-unanswered. We
think you ought to answer it, not just by
looking up Huxley and Newman buoby examining
yourself and what is happening to you in the
University. The faculty won't answer the ques-
tion, the administration won't and The Saturday
Evening Post won't! Are you satisfied with what
you get out of your classes and the way you'
get it? Could you be getting more out of the
University than you are getting? Are your poten-
tialities any where near being realized?
Most of you have accepted the twin traditional
attitudes toward college: First, the tradition of
"Teacher Knows Best," the principle that it is
the function of the faculty and the administra-
tion to decide what education shall be, and the
function of the student to accept their decisions.
Second, that college is a place to undergo with
the least possible effort a process, generally ac-
cepted as "proper," of absorbing much informia-

The TVA
Is In Danger .
IN 1933 WHEN President Roosevelt
appointed the Tennessee Valley Ad-
ministration board he had reason to be proud of
the calibre of men who had consented to under-
take this pet Administration power and flood
control project. Chairman Arthur E. Morgan,
formerly president of Antioch College and one
of the top flight flood engineers, was applauded
by all sides when he took up his new duties. "He
is the best qualified man we could find in the
country." said the President. The appointment
of Director David Eli Lilienthal, youthful Wis-
consin public utilities commissioner, was also
hailed with bi-partisan enthusiasm, and the TVA
appeared destined for an impeccable adminis-
tration. That was 1933.
In January 1938 storm clouds darkened TVA's
horizon. Today a deluge of vitriolic and per-
sonal attacks are pouring forth from each mem-
ber of the board. A long-suspected internecine
struggle has finally come to the surface and re-
vealed a rift of personal hatred between Director'
Lilienthal and Harcourt A. Morgan on one side
and Chairman Morgan on the other. The battle
rages on the question of TVA purposes. Morgan
views the project as a flood-control-reclamation
experiment. Lilienthal holds that it is a gov-
ernment instrument for production of electric
power.
Mr. Morgan has lately scorched the country's
front pages with repeated charges of infamy on
the part of his two associates. And he minced
no words when he attributes to them a "practice
of evasion, intrigue and sharp strategy with re-
markable skill in alibi and the habit of avoiding
direct responsibility whch makes Machiavelli
seem open and candid." Moreover, the Chairman
charges Lilienthal and Harcourt Morgan with
despatching to the president "expertly false
reports" on the condition and progress of the
Valley. The list of alleged malfeasances is
yet longer. He finds Sen. George L. Berry,
Democrat from Texas, was aided by the two
directors in an attempt to "exploit," "hold up,"
and "defraud" the federal government with his
$5,000,000 marble claims.
Since 1933 Administration lawyers have vir-
tually lived in the courts of the country defend-
ing the project against the legal weapons of
private enterprise. Internecine strife now but-
tresses the opposition with a new and powerful
force. If Mr. Morgan's charges are true the
whole TVA administration is today shot through
with corruption and urgently needful of an im-
mediate and thorough cleansing. If Mr. Mor-
gan's charges are untrue it seems fitting that
the chairman should be relieved of his post
for allowing his jealousy to control his prudence.
At all odds a congressional investigation must
be instituted at once before the meritorious work{
in the Valley is destroyed by personal warfare.
Robert I. Fitzhenry.
Ann Arbor's
Municipal Election...
MONDAY'S PRIMARY ELECTION cost
the taxpayers of Ann Arbor just 24.3
cents for every vote tabulated. Out of a 1937
registration of 8,581 in the three wards which had
contests, 7.2 per cent (623 persons) bothered to
cast ballots.
These figures on the cost per vote include
only cost for clerks, as do those which fol-
low. Considering other factors, the figure rises
to 34 cents. Additional costs, however, have
not been apportioned to the wards by the
county clerk as yet.
In the first prechict of the seventh ward, 32
voters out of the 1,356 on the lists participated
in the primary. The cost to the city was 88
cents per vote. In the other precinct in the
same ward, 254 persons went to -the polls at a
cost of 14 cents a ballot. In the second ward, 141
voted at an expense to the taxpayers of 31 cents
per vote. Fourth ward voters to the number of
196 cast ballots. The cost to the city for each
was 22 cents. The 1938 expense per vote cast
was over twice the 11.4 cent average for the 1937
spring primary in which 22.4 of the registration
in all wards took part.

These figures might seem dull if they did not-
tell a story of import. Voters in Ann Arbor,
which supposedly has an unusually high per-
centage of intelligent citizens, almost totally
ignored Monday's election. Why?
There w'as little actual need for an election.
In two wards, two men were contesting for the
nomination as alderman. In one of these (the
seventh), the winner will have no opponent in
April. The remaining contest was to decide
between two men who both wished to run for
supervisor. That was all-three competitions
for minor posts in which voters were uninterested.
It would seem that the nominations might have
been made at caucuses at a great saving to the
taxpayers. Certainly, some workable and less
costly substitute should have been found.
Voters were extremely apathetic toward the
election except in the second precinct of the
seventh ward, where mild interest was shown.
If it was necessary to have the primary, it should
have been more democratic. The winners could
not be called the choice of the electorate,
for most of the electorate did not participate in
the election. Special interests could easily con-
trol such an affair as took place. In the past,
suggestions have been made that voters be fined
if they do not cast a ballot in each poll. Or per-
haps John Q. Public should be forced to reregister
after ignoring an election and be charged a
healthy fee. Both plans seem stringent, for there
should be enough good citizenship in a city such
as Ann Arbor to bring more than a trivial 7.2
percent of the voters out even if the matters to be'
decided are of little import. Monday the voter
would seem to have been doing the intelligent
thing in going to the polls--yet in the great mar-
iority of f 7 . - hlic ' :ed home. Perhsscr t ct

Ii feemHi t6Me
H-eywood Broun
"Turn to the Right," was the title of a success-
ful play. But 'as a phrase embodying a shift in
political position it has proved even more prof-
itable to many persons.
There seems to be no one so humble that he
cannot get himself signed by a syndicate or a
magazine by promising "to
tell all" about his former1
radical associates. Even the1
anarchists are now invited1
to present their manuscript
to magazines of conservative
kidney.
To be sure, there is an old
tradition that it pays to leave
unpopular causes at the pro-
pitious moment and join the
respectables. The familiar firm bid has been for
many centuries in the neighborhood of thirty. But
now a recanter may expect to sell his holdings
for more than par if only he keeps a weather
eye upon the market.
Men during te course of years or months do
change their minds. It is less than fair to abuse
everyone who holds a certain opinion today which1
is quite different from the one to which he
adhered in the days of his youth-or even in his
maturity, for that matter. Publicists, like polo
ponies, may get the urge to turn upon a dime.;
But I think that sometimes there is ground
for suspicion as to the source from which the
u,'ge comes. And sometimes the coin isn't a dime.
It has been said that man does not live by
bread alone. Undoubtedly he can find greater
comfort if he learns how to ascertain on which
side it is buttered. But when a person always
calls the turn and the flying roll invariably lands
butter side up the bystander may be excused if he
begins to believe that there is something more
than mere chance in such a run of luck. And
one may wonder what the renegade buys one-half
so precious as the soul he sells.
In The Home Circle
It is reasonable enough that there should be
grave differences of opinion among minority
groups. And they can grow in wisdom only when
there is opportunity for the give and take of
opinion. But it has been held reprehensible
in a small boy who has been licked in a fight
with his fellows if he runs away cr.ying, "I'm go-
ing to tell my mamma on you."
Now, this distinctly has been the practice of
some of the authors of so-called exposes. In many
rases the man (or woman )involved has declared
that he spanks his fellow progressives for their
own good. But all too often he has borrowedj
the hairbrush from some reactionary publication.
Some of the most triumphant editorials in con-
servative papers recently have been based upon
charges made by those who assert that they.
themselves are foes of capitalism.
There is no denying the fact that economics
now and again makes bedfellows fully as strange
as any whom politics has ever checked into the
same suite. A man can't be called upon to aban-
don a good cause because some rascal has climbed
upon the bandwagon. At the same time, I deplore
the judgment of a leader who halts his vehicle!
at a convenient spot in the road and actually
hails hitch-hiking tramps with the invitation,
"Here's the time for you boys to hop on."
Waiting For A Cue
And there is certainly such a thing as a sense
of timing. Let us assume that Mr. X is a liberal.
We might even call him F.D.R. A radical thinks
that R. is proceeding much too slowly. C, a con-
servative, thinks the President is rushing the
country along to doom. In my opinin, it is a
mistake for the radical to team up with the
conservative and join in a common attack on the
man in the middle.
Specifically, I thought that CIO leaders made
a great mistake in criticizing the National Labor
Relations Board at the same time that body
was under fire from the AFL.

I have been told that the critic who thinks
he has something to get off his chest should never
be delayed by the objection, "This isn't the time."
I'm further told that unless "now is the time, thatI
time will never come."
Czech rade ;,Pacts
Cheap shoes, particularly the cemented-sole
type, were the major"item of controversy in the
prolonged negotiation of the American trade
agreement with Czechoslovakia. Secretary Hull
stood firm against the protests of domestic shoe
manufacturers, particularly those in New Eng-
land, who contended their business would be
ruined if the Czech product were permitted to
"flood the country." The treaty's terms, as an-
nounced yesterday, show that American inter-
ests have been safeguarded without putting up a
barrier against a reliable foreign buyer of our
goods.
The restriction placed on this type of shoe from
all countries holds the imports to 1% per cent of
total annual American production in this class.
This will enable the Czechs to ship im about 4,-
800,000 pairs of shoes, the merest drop in the
bucket as compared with total American produc-
tion, which was 410,000,000 pairs last year. In re-
turn, Czechoslovakia will take other products
of American factories and farms, with a resultant
stimulus to domestic employment and buying
power. The benefits of such trade expansion
will more than make up for the slight increase in
our shoe iipwoi'ts.
