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 educational institu-
t ions in the best meaning of the term.

The Panay
Incident . .
P AYMENT OF $2,24,007 on the part
of Japan to the United States as full
indemnity Friday for the bombing of the U.S.
river gunboat Panay completes one of the most
creditable actions on the part of citizens of this
ountry and the Department of State ever car-
ded out.
It was on last December 12 that word was re-
ceived in this country of the "wanton" bombing
of the little river boat Panay on the Yangtze
River. Japanese airplanes were reported to have
dropped a leaden hail despite the fact that the
American flag was in full view.
The Panay incident was played up especially
in newspapers because it so happened that sev-
eral newspapermen, attracted to China by the
fact a war was in progress, were on the boat at
the time of the bombing. Americans imme-
diately remembered the Maine and the Lusitania.
The State Department had one of its most tick-
lish problems on its hands.
However, amidst all the talk of mobilization
and action against the "Yellow Menace" the peo-
ple of this country possibly remembered the
thousands .of disabled veterans of the World
War still inhabiting our hospitals. They prob-
ably also remembered that they did not want to
go to war to benefit a small group.
For in the news dispatches was the notation.
that the only reason that the Panay was in the
war-infested waters was to guard three Standard
Oil vessels which were seeking to make a profit
by selling petroleum to the warring nations. And
so it happened that instead of getting a monopoly
to sell "oil for the lamps of China" at the cost
of the lives of more American troops, the Stand-
ard Oil Company obtains fair -payment of $1,-
287,942 from Japan at the State Department's

The Editor
Gets Told.,
Military Ball
To the Editor:
Orange braid and buckles do not make a good
soldier, but making braid, buckles, buttons, med-
als and all that make "swanky" uniforms pop-
ular does a lot to make a good soldier. Of course,
the best soldier is the one who doesn't ask ques-
tions; he carries out orders, with his life, if
need be. When war comes,- for many reasons, it
is popular to die for abstractions that won't fit
into reason or justice; so for the convenience
of all, no questions are asked again, and death,
even if John Soldier comes home, is that much
more pleasant. Of course J S really died (nine
times out of ten) when he first stopped think-
ing and enlisted, or submitted to the draft. But
I'll forget with you this worst tragedy of War,
and what it does to millions of personalities
the world over who support but never fight in the
war. Maybe we could afford to forget it all, for
other pressing issues, were it not that war seems
so dangerously nearby.
May I inquire why the campus of the Univer-
sity must be made proving ground for populariz-
ing such blasphemy of youth. If a liberal educa-
tion connotes youth concentrating on learning
new ways of living and serving, a cooperative at-
tempt to make opportunities for the growth of in-
dividual rEersonalities and development of self-
discipline, along with improvement of a social
consciousness, what place has the popularizing
agent of opposite dogma in our schools? I mean
the ROTC which the War Department's official-
dom itself has claimed to be indispensable not
from a standpoint of training in Military Science
but for purposes of propaganda and securing
civilian cooperation. Outright propaganda might
be tolerated, but the militarists' attempt to per-
vert our liberal institutions ought to be rudely
or cunningly defeated. Authoritarianism to the
extent it exists, subverts the liberal ideal. In-
stead of developing self-discipline for ourselves
they would tell us attitudes of obedience, an
obedience to traditional bigotry. So, if I were
Governor of Michiganand invited to the Ball, I
would reply, "Although the Military has its place,
when I consider the purposes Tor which the
University was founded, generous funds supplied
by citizens to maintain and build schools, the
enterprising spirit of youth seeking freedom and
truth in taking advantage of these institutions,
the Military is out of place in our schools. I
must decline to give my support to influences
in those schools which defeat the higher ideal.
Without personal malice, it will gratify me to
know that my absence from the Military Ball is
He Gets Tougher
And, dear Editor, I await that day when those
who believe in peace will be willing to make the
highest sacrifice therefor.
My next thought is tougher. So that my zeal
is not mistaken for rancor or a case of "sour
grapes" it should be understood that some of
my best friends will probably attend, some of
stronger character and more ability than my-
self, persons for whom I have the highest re-
spect. To those and others with a keen sense
of values I'm talking. The scoffing sophomore
who is "through with ideals" or assumes the
best any reformer has to offer is only trash,
shouldn't have read this far.
You who are always talking "Peace" and de-
crying radicals who urge fundamental reforms
that might bring it, since that stirs dissension
which antagonizes those who want a static world
-What are you doing? You are refusing to
sacrifice even one night of shuffling and squeez-
ing around stuffed shirts and uniforms (no less
bloody because we aren't fighting-yet! Blood
of American youth shed in imperialist wars for
American big business). You are saying: "I'm
glad to sell out for a few hours of questionable
thrill, to do my part to popularize this encroach-
ing menace to educational and personal free-
dom." If you' are a woman, you'll add, inad-
vertently, "That includes my beauty and charm,

my youthful womanly graces." To popularize-
aiding the contest whether we'll think, or whe-
ther we'll forget-playing into the hands of
enemies who put the ROTC on the college
Every One Counts
You girls are saying: "We want you, our broth-
ers and admirers, to work in peace time and lay
down your lives for us in war . . . to ruin the
lives of men of other nations who have women
too, all for us We have asked through the cen-
turies that you stand boldly for ideals and pro-
tect our homes and children. We help too, and
pray while you are away on the battlefield, or
in the office. Responsibilities that both old and
very young men must meet. We realize you gladly
conform, also that you have interests that such
efforts help you serve, but we require of you
such sacrifice not only out of love and, admira-
tion but even out of fairness. But, dear brother,
lover, or father, I'm only one little woman who
won't be missed anyway. I'll have such fun at
the ball. Of course it might help bring another
war because all the other women will be there
too, and together we necessarily popularize agen-
cies that convince people by making them stop
asking questions-whether it is when they use
the draft or the more subtle ball-we become,
convinced, that unwittingly, that violence ulti-
mately rules and humaviity only effectively
settles their disagreements by war. I must
admit it brings us closer to war because we are
better prepared for it, now that we have accepted
its philosophy. We must plan to attend. I'll
try to forget for one night that we have taught
same time they would be helping themselves to

l f emf o Heywood Broun
Blackjacks bounced upon the skull of isola-
tion in the Yorkville section of Manhattan. I am
far from trying to build the riot at the meeting
of the German-American Bund into an inter-
national incident. Even though the cops seem
to have done a surprisingly bad job, I doubt
if it will be necessary to land the Marines to
restore order in the beer
stubes of 86th St.
Still, I confess to an un-
.easy feeling when I read,
"The gray-shirted Storm
Troopers gathered around
< the hecklers and the swas-
tika emblems on the arms of
the troopers rose and fell as
they clubbed the objectors
into submission."
New York is only a single city in America and
Yorkville isn't very large, but I am minded to
ask what the police were doing when men whc",
officially proclaim themselves agents of Hitler
undertook to show citizens that there is a lot of
law at the end of a blackjack?r
The accounts as to what happened before the
Storm Troopers moved into action are a little
confused. According to one account, the trouble
started when a man in the audience' asked,
"Aren't there going to be any speeches in Eng-
Personally, it is my opinion that he was out
of order. The chairman might well have said.
"No" and ordered the current orator to continue.
Out Of Our Own Mouths
Another version of the cause of the fracas is
that one of the speakers spoke in gross and in-
sulting terms about the President of the United
States. But possibly he merely translated into
German some of the things which have been
said on the editorial pages or in the comment
columns of American newspapers.
I see no reason why foreign language groups,
including the Germans, should not use their own
tongue in meetings and maintain their own press.
Far too much has been written about what the
alien owes America and all too little about what
America owes to the stranger within our gates.
Much that is finest in our civilization has come
out of the toil and aspirations of the immigrant,
out of his sinew and out of his soul. By all
means, let him bring and cling to his own cul-
ture. Our own achievements are a distillation
out of the ideals and experiences of all nations
and races. But I think , that no part of free
speech, free assembly or any other civil liberty
is violated if we say that no one from abroad,
or here at home, shall be privileged to organize
and maintain his own particular police force. I
,am equally against Storm Troopers and thugs
hired in labor disputes.
Yet what I have chiefly in mind is that the
Yorkville riot, although a comparatively small
thing in itself, is a straw by which we may know
the way the wind blows. It is a bit of testimony
that the oceans which surround us are not nearly
as wide as the complete isolationists would have
us believe.
** * *
Already On The Inside
It is naive to say that America should not
even register an opinion on foreign quarrels.
What is the point of arguing that we can keep
Fascism out of America by rigorously resolving
never to mention it. The heckler with a frac-
tured skull will have every right to mutter when
he regains consciousness, "Don't talk to ml
about keeping Fascism out of America. It is al-~
ready here. I can show you thesscars."
And deeper abrasions have been inflicted on
our national life. One need not go to Yorkville
to find rampant Fascism. It can be found in
higher and more important places. America is
already' in the position where we cannot have
isolation unless the Fascist forces are willing
to grant us that boon. They do not seem dis-

posed to do so.
It will be the part of wisdom to make our
position clear and to establish a formula to which
the non-Fascist nations can rally.
Not for one second do I believe that Neville
Chamberlain and his semi-Fascist ministry has
restored the peace of Europe. It is far-fetched
to say that one need no longer fear or dread
the hurricane after the house goes down.
you from the time you were baby boys, that the
philosophies of violence contribute enormously
to the disrespect for personality that has caused
breakdowns in morals and ideals of mankind
throughout the ages. Could you find a uniform
(that you didn't fight for either) and look im-
portant like a lot of others will?"
Talking frankly, the story is about that way-
men and women alike-but especially so for the
women. You sell out for a night of cheap hi-
larity. Next year you are abashed and overcome
with grief when your brothers sell their honor
or ideals for a few thousand embezzled dollars,
a voluptuous female, or an advancement in bus-
iness over a rival. Neither of us are excusable,
but I want you to see the picture.
My congratulations to the Peace Committee
for instituting a rival ball. It should be tradi-
tional, and more fun than the best the militarists
can offer. Those who subscribe to the doctrines
of the Hitlers and Pershings should properly
find their place at the Military Ball. I'm simply
making a plea that as many sincere Michigan
men and women as possible, who share demo-
cratic or Christian ideals and philosophies for
living, will boycott this particular instrument of
ruthless and canny propaganda.

An jtArbor Season
It is to be regretted that the 1938
Ann Arbor Dramatic Season is not,1
in general, presenting plays that are
on a level with the actors and ac-
tresses playing in them. From the
advance listing of the casts, this de-
1 partment is definitely enthusiastic.
The choice of plays, unfortunately,
has not been the happiest, due to
"influences not under the Civic Com-
mittee's control."
Choosing top-notch acting calibre
was the wisest thing the Committee
could have done. Aline MacMahon,
Tonio Selwart, Pauline Lord, Doris
Dalton and Jane Cowl will all see to
it that their individual shows are the
best that they can make of them and
they will certainly not perform until
that has been accomplished. The
last three actresses mentioned have
had the advantage of creating -their
roles in the original Broadway pro-
ductions. The former two are proven
and meticulous actors.
It is too bad that a happy medium
could not be effected. We either have
weak plays (except "Liliom") with
superlative casts as this year, or ex-
cellent plays with poor actors, as in
previous years. Perhaps some day
some wise executive of the Dramatic
Season will try to accomplish this
seeming insuperable feat and make
the season one that is truly enjoyable
for all tastes. I am not indicting
Miss Helen Arthur, who is mainly re-
sponsible for bringing the plays to
Ann Arbor. Common sense tells us
that she selected the best available.
Perhaps she has hit the golden mean
in the one, "Liliom."
At any rate, we should not be too
disdainful or critical of the plays to
be given at the Lydia Mendelssohn
nor should we, on the other hand, be
"thankful that any kind of a drama
season is better than none.."

Files . .

L AST YEAR, due to an intensive stu-
dent campaign led by the Daily,- a
comprehensive examination file intended to
cover most of the courses offered by the Univer-
sity was set up in the General Library.
Today over 150 courses are represented in the
Library files. Their value in giving point to
review and in aiding coordination of material
has been proved by the deluge of requests for use
of the files that swamp the Library during exam
Nevertheless the files have proved themselves
deficient and incomplete in many respects. Some
departments, such as political science and history
are well represented in the collection, where bot-
any, zoology, and physics are but scantily so.
Then too, though the large introductory survey
courses are well covered by exams, the smaller
and less popular courses have been largely ne-
glected. Due to popular demand many courses
could well afford duplicate exams to make them
readily available during examination week.
