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.

A Call
From iSpain.. ..
R ALPH NEAFUS, graduate of the
Michigan forestry school, joined the
International Brigade last summer to fight for
the Spanish people and their Government. He
was captured Sunday, March 13 at Calanda by
the Insurgent forces under General Garcia Va-
lino. Today, his life is in danger.
Representing the finest elements in Michigan
tradition, Neafus left Ann Arbor for Spain know-
ing full well that he was risking his life for
the democratic ideals in which he believed. He
offered his life to the Spanish Republic in the
same way that Lafayette, von Steuben and Kos-
ciusko offered their services that this republic
might live.
The announced policy of the present adminis-
tration in Washington is to refuse diplomatic
protection to volunteers in Spain. We wish to
point out that the State Department, even
without abrogating this policy, can and must
make clear through the diplomatic channels
the vital interest that hundreds of Michigan stu-
dents have in the well-being of Ralph Neafus.
It is the duty of the State Department at least
to make inquiries and exert pressure to ensure
that he will receive humane treatment as a
prisoner of war. If possible the State Department
should work for his release.
Diplomatic red tape must not prejudice the
life of a man, who like Neafus, is fighting for the
democratic principles that our Government rep-
resents.

~on't Say
Aloha. ..
S UNDAY the Hearst papers carried,
among other features typical of the
most reactionary and backward portion of the

press, a military diagram of Hawaii, "our first
line of defense against invasion," covering the
front page of the graphic feature section.
Needless to point out, this sort of propaganda
is extremely dangerous. The diagram and ac-
companying legend are carefully prepared with
an eye to dramatic appeal, for militarism unques-
tionably contains such an appeal, or can be
made to contain it. The suggestion of Pearl
Ha7rbor as a bulwark against Japan, and the
glowing description of the island's strength as a
naval base have the effect of arousing a bellig-
erent spirit irn the reader as well as a faith in the
efficacy of armaments. The army and navy, in
the Hearst and other papers of similar character,
are always referred to as "forces for peace,"
whose might will discourage other nations from
attacking us. Aside from the historical fact that
large armies and navies breed war rather than
prevent it, the attitude induced in the mind of
the public by articles of this type is decidedly in-
jurious to peace in itself; for once the people
are inculcated with the spirit of military pre-
paredness to resist attack, they become suscep-
tible to international incidents, insults to the na-

Admiral Yarnell and Admiral Phelps have con-
curred in this opinion.
The idea that America's defense against ag-
gression begins in the middle of the Pacific is
analogous to the jingoistic expressions so often
voiced by European statesmen and military oful-
cers about "strategic frontiers." A strategic fron-
tier is always situated at a point some miles or
hundreds of miles beyond the actual frontier,
and it must be seized or held in order to protect,
the real border. When the strategic frontier is
actually gained and established as the national
frontier, a new imaginary line is selected some
distance deeper in enemy territory.
If Hawaii must be strengthened in order to
protect the approaches to the Panama Canal,
then by the same logic we will be told that the
Caroline Islands must be seized to protect Ha-
waii, Formosa to protect the Carolines and
Burma, Tibet, Turkestan and Samarcand to pro-
tect Formosa.
Our first line of defense is not at Honolulu;
it is at home against Hearst and the rest of the
chauvinist press.
Joseph Gies.
SPRING," the calendar insists, "is
here."
And strangely enough, Ann Arbor for once
agrees with that famous instrument which Pope
Gregory revised. The robins are back from their
sojourn in the Sunny South and the balmy
breezes are wafting their way across the campus
and through the windows of even the South Wing
of University Hall. Topcoats have given way to
shirt-sleeves. "Ho-Hum" has taken the place of
"Hrumpph!"
But don't let the present whimsy of Ann
Arbor weather fool you, freshmen. Even before
you read this, the elements may have pushed
another button and decided to let us have some
rain or sleet or snow in the way of castigation
for these few days of sunshine. Then, too, the
famous brand of windstorms, so prevalent in
Ann Arbor, may return to popularity with the
local weatherman who is said to reside in the
psychopathic ward.
It's too good to be true.
Tuure Tenander.
THE FORUM
More About 'Crip Shots'
To the Editor:
I read with some surprise the small article on
your sports page a few days ago in which it
was stated that a new term had originated in
Texas to designate the easy shot near the bas-
ket in basketball-the "crip" shot.
As far back as 1924 this term was in current
use on the campus of Louisiana State University,
being used to describe either an easy shot in
basketball or an easy course in the curriculum,
which was called a "crip" course.
During the duck hunting season in the South
many ducks are wounded while on the wing and
continue to fly, perhaps for miles. Then they
take refuge near the edge of a lake or river and
stay there in the shallow water until they die
or recover. These ducks are known as cripples
or "crips and only a very ignorant hunter will
shoot them, as they are sick and unfit for human
consumption. A custom arose among Southern
hunters of jokingly accusing a fellow hunter of
shooting "crips" when he came in with a nice bag.
The term thus originated spread to the campuses
and became a synonym for anything easy as
above mentioned.
-W. F. Groves.
Razing Higher Education
To the Editor:
Does addressing a letter to a publication serve
as prima facie evidence of the writer being a
crank? I'm afraid it does to many people, but
I am willing to suffer this epithet if by writing,
I can in any way assist in persuading the Uni-
versity that many of my friends and students
with whom I have been casually acquainted dur-

ing the past four years believe the University
curriculum and teaching methods sadly in need
of improvement.
You published two letters in Sunday's paper
that manifest this same dissatisfaVtion, al-
though it was rather disappointing to find no
clearly defined suggestions for improvement of-
fered in them. This does not invalidate them,
however, for many of us feel that we could be
getting more than we do out of our classes,
though we are at a loss to explain how this could
be done. I'm pretty much that way myself,
but I do think that there are several things that
might well be done.
First of all, although it is a general proposal,
I think that the faculty should make the hurdles
higher and the pace faster. Few students are
pushed to their utmost capacity and many are
coasting through without having to exert them-
selves. The graduate schools on campus demand
much more work from students just out of the
literary college-and they get it with surpris-
ingly few "fatalities." The amount of work done
and the quality of the education obtained are
positively. correlated, I believe, and in addition
to this advantage, I think the attitude toward
learning would be noticeably improved.
Secondly, I think that more honors courses
would go far toward obtaining the end mentioned
above and besides would introduce some indi-
vidual attention in our highly mechanized edu-
cation. Michigan is lagging in this respect and
now that the honors course has received such
wide acceptance it is particularly distressing to
see our school still standing by.
Thirdly, with all of the widespread dissatis-
faction over our examination schedule, it should
be obvious that the present system should be

I/ feeitur o Me
eywood Broun
By now I think some public apology is overdue
from American partisans of Franco. They have
insisted that the war in Spain was purely a local
issue between the "Reds" and a noble patriot
who would defend religion and free speech and
the tested traditions of his
country,
Even at this late date I
find Mr. Ellery Sedgwick
writing, "Doubtless Franco'
government will establish or-
";';?der by the peremptory meth-
;} ods which follow all success-
ful wars, but once it is firmly
in the saddle its inclination
will be to work out Spanish
salvation in a thoroughly Spanish way."
Apparently Mr. Sedgwick means to say that
after the Generalissimo has shot many thousands
of the "Communistic," peace will again prevail in
the vineyards of Iberia and that laughing peasant
girls will tread upon the grapes in the fashion
which is ancient and familiar. After sufficient
blood has been shed the purple wine will once
more be passed from hand to hand by delighted
peasants strumming guitars.
It is a romantic picture. When the slaughter
of labor leaders and trades unionists has been
completed by Mr. Franco and his Moorish mer-
cenaries Carmen may once again be permitted
to carry a red rose in her teeth and romance will
ramble over the new graves.
* * * *
The Broad Atlantic Monthly
As a literary man Ellery Sedgwick pines for the
restoration of the day when Spain becomes again
a fictional background and not the crucible of a
struggle for bread and life and freedom. But
Mr. Sedgwick is too much under the spell of the
fine tradition of belles-lettres established by the
Atlantic Monthly. Life cannot be translated
wholly into terms of five cents a word, or possibly
ten for established writers.
If Franco wins what will be known in Rome
and Berlin as "victory" two of the most surprised
persons on the surface of this earth will be Mr.
Sedgwick and the Generalissimo. If the present
drive succeeds and the Loyalist cause is lost, one
of the first acts of Mussolini and Hitler will
be to take away the messenger-boy outfit which
they have allowed to Franco. He will be stripped
of his khaki and his bicycle and told to run along
and roll his own hoop in some isolated kingdom
where he is not in the way. And the three or
four Spaniards who have constituted his national
army will also be instructed to scram.
Even the meanest intelligence must compre-
hend by now that the Liberator is strictly a
front man for the bigger boys. It may be that
Hitler and Mussolini will quarrel about the spoils,
but at the moment the deal seems to be that the
Duce will let the Fuehrer take Austria and points
east in return for the gift of Spain. This ancient
land now lies like a sugar plum in the toe of
Italy's stocking. According to the plan, the Med-
iterranean is to become Mussolini's lake and part
of the new Roman Empire.
* * * *
Just The Visiting Firemen.
There seems to be complete agreement among
all the foreign correspondents that the present
drive of the rebels is being put on wholly by the
Germans and the Italians in the present Fascist
sweep across the face of Europe. It would be
wholly unfair to Franco to surmise that among
the people of Spain he will be coupled with
Benedict Arnold. In all truth he has not been
secretive about his role. He sold out at the be-
ginning of hostilities instead of at the end.
And when the Fascist heat is turned on
the Church and any freedom of worship I will join
in the protest. I will stand shoulder to shoulder
with clerics who cry out that Fascism is the new
paganism. But I think that some of my religious
friends must pardon me if I nudge them and
say, "This is a good fight in which we are en-
gaged.. But why were you so naive in overlook-
ing the hand of Hitler in this business from the
very beginning? Now we stand together, but may

I ask what delayed you?"
Student Protest
Many undergraduates of Oxford and Cam-
bridge who were as much concerned as anyone
by Mr. Eden's resignation recently went up to
London to join their London University friends
in a protest to their members of Parliament
about the change in foreign policy. Those who
came up had all taken part previously in large
demonstrations of their several universities
against the government's policy-from Oxford,
incidentally, some two hundred telegrams were
sent to Lord Halifax with the words, "Oxford
says resign," and most of them were members
9f the universities' Liberal or Socialist clubs.
There were also some Conservatives among them.
About a hundred and fifty of them arrived on
the lobbying campaign. They all asked for their
members of Parliament, including Mr. Cham-
berlain and Mr. Eden. Several members did
talk to them including two Cabinet Ministers. Sir
Thomas Inskip and Mr. W. Elliot. Mr. Elliot
was heard to remark to his Oxford interlocutor
that the proceedings of the Non-Intervention
Committee were a scandal. He temporised about
the Eden issue, saying, that the talks with Italy
were "experimental." Sir Thomas Inskip's opin-
ion was that Mr. Eden need never have resigned.
The undergraduates concentrated on Con-
servative members for obvious reasons, and gave
several of them an energetic quarter of an hour.
Sir W. Wayland, Mr. Pickthorn, Mr. Petterick
and Mr. Hely-Hutchinson all ran their gauntlet,
but Lady Davidson was perhaps given the most
argumentative time of all.

ART
By HELEN B. HALL
Exhibition Of Prints
Two good groups of some 50 prints
each compose the current exhibit in
the North and South Galleries of
Alumni Memorial Hall, shownrafter-
noons from 2 to 5 until March 27,1
under the sponsorship of the Ann1
Arbor Art Association.
The prints selected from the an-1
nual exhibition of the Chicago So-
ciety of Etchers are of sound work-
manship, on the whole fairly con-
servative in nature but presenting va-I
ried techniques and effects. Land-
scape studies predominate: Martin
Hardie, English artist, has a print en-
titled "The Lake" with a simplicity
of treatment tending towards a Far-
Eastern method of approach; strong-
ly contrasting in mood, dramatic in
light and pattern, is the plate "Neigh-
bors" by Mildred Bryant Brooks, a
California artist who won the an-
nual $500 Society prize with a sim-
ilar work. "The Old Bridge, Maine"j
by Allen Philbrick is nice in its sure-
ness of composition and freedom of
execution.
Among the architectural landscape
studies is a scene in'Rome by Louis C.
Rosenberg which has a quality of re-
straint and dignity characteristic of
his work; the print by Ernest D. Roth,
"Mill at Certosa, Florence,". has a
delicacy and charm, while Jonathan
Taylor's view of the Market Place
in Amiens is a carefully, logically
built-up plate.
An abstraction entitlede"Forms of
Biology" by John Paul Jensen has a
restlessipattern and emotional qual-
ity akin to Kandinsky's paintings.
One of Alexander Master-Valerio's
fine mezzotints, "On the Free Shore,"
won a place in this exhibit. "The
Song" by Margery Ryerson is frag-
mentary but thoroughly effective;
and Gordon Grant's "Up Aloft" is a
spelndid example of this artist's
mastery in print-making.
The prints in the second gallery,
those by the American Artists Group,
are decidedly more modern in ap-
proach apd spirit. They are by lead-
ing artists, foremosts in their field,
very moderately priced but good in
technique, interesting in subject, and
on the whole strong in pattern and
design. Typical American scenes and
aictivities are presented, with empha-
sis on the legitimate artistic worth
of the works. "Wastelands" by Joe
Jones is a landscape of brooding
character; Howard Cook presents an
interesting study of New York, "Look-
ing Up Broadway," and Louis Lozo-
wick's "Distant Manhattan" is ex-
cellently composed and displays his
usual distinction.
Jean Charlot's print, "Tortilla Mak-
er," is very strong and effective in
pattern. Two fanciful works by well-
known women artists are "Four of a
Kind" by Nura, delightful in pat-t
tern and in humor, and the whimsical
print, "Fairy Story," by Wanda Gag.

he would be willing to discuss perm-
anent retention of the islands by1
the United States, provided all thei
powers of a dominion government
were granted the' Philippines.c
The prospects in Washington for
prompt reconsideration are not
bright. Some observers believe that
McNutt, who had been in conference
with President Roosevelt and Secre-
tary Hull, would not have come out
so strongly in favor of preservation'
of United States sovereignty over the
Philippines if the Administration
were not inclined to favor modifi-
cation of the Tydings-McDuffie ar-
rangement. The President himself
has thus far refused to commit hin-
self. Others in Washington have not
been so reticent. Senator Tydings
expressed perhaps the majority view
in Congress when he said, in effect,
that it is up to the Filipinos to make
-a proposal. Apart, howeyer, from the
sugar and related blocs that desire
elimination of Philippine competi-
tion, there is considerable opposition
in the capital to the continuation in
any form of American control over
the Philippines. The isolationists see
the islands as means of needlessly in-
volving the United States in Orientall
complications, while many American
naval and some army leaders consid-
er them liabilities, not assets, in a war
in the Pacific.
Nevertheless, shouldthe Filipinos,
