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-
tions in the best meaning of the term.

The Strike'
Ag st War..-
HE TIME is 4 p.m. today.
The place is the General Library
steps.
The stake is your future.
The occasion is the Strike Against War.
The Strike Against War is not radical, nor
visionary, nor an affront to the University
Administration. It is simply the most practical
means available to you as students to make
your sentiments known to those factions who
are for war. You are, as you know, in the
midst of a world at war, mad dictators, pre-
cariously-situated governments and wildarma-
ments races. , And the best way for you to dent
the consciences or merely discourage these anti-
social elements is to attend the Strike Against
War.
We do not mean to say that mere attendance
at the Strike will end your obligations to the
peace movement. You must leave the Strike
with a resolve to think out your position clearly
-if you have not already done so. And then,
if you are firmly convinced of your position, you
must follow it by agitation directed toward the
common goal.
But we do mean to say this: your absence today
will hurt the Peace movement by virtue of the
fact that indifference to War is, more than
anything else, encouragement to those who
badger for War daily.
It's clearly up to you.
Tuure Tenander.

To the Editor: .
Michigan should be proud of its most signifi-
cant social affair of the year in the form of the
new Peace Ball. Enthusiastic comment on its
behalf shows that desire for such an affair has
long been in existence on the campus and indi-
cates that Friday night may very well initiate
the most worthwhile of Michigan traditions in
which Michigan men and women celebrate the
contribution of college youth in the world wide
effort to save mankind from another war.
The chairman of the Peace Ball committee has
indicated that it is no coincidence that the Peace
Ball makes its bow to the campus on the same
evening of the Military Ball It should be under-
stood that the Peace Ball is not meant tcr com-
pete with the Military Ball or bring reflection
on the right of the R.O.T.C. to have a colorful
dance in keeping with the perfectly human cus-
tom of the soldier to present himself socially in
all the glory of his uniform so as to obtain the
plaudits of the feminine sex. A
Rather, the Peace Ball offers an opportunit
for glorification of the fight for peace to the
students on the campus who share hatred for
the war with the R.O.T.C., but who find then-
selves unable to take the road to peace which the
military group would follow on the ground that
the costly mailed fist creates nationalism, race
hatred and distrusts which tend to cause the
wars we seek to avoid.
Time will eventually decide whether Christ or
Caesar had the best pathway to peace in a
troubled world. In the meantime the struggle
between military pacifists and non-military pa-
cifists continues. A Peace Ball in addition to a
Military Ball on the Michigan campus will dram-
atize equally both approaches to the problem of
war and incidentally give everyone a chance to
have a good time.
-Eldon R. Hamm.
Definition Of Democracy
To the Editor:
In view of the oncoming Military Ball spon-
sored by the R.O.T.C. and the Peace Ball spon-
sored by the United Peace Committee this little
selection taken from the Training Manuel No.
2000-2025 Reserve Officers Training Corps would
be especially timely.
"The War Department of the United States
sponsors the following definition of democracy.
'Democracy-a government of the masses. Au-
thority derived through mass meetings or any
form of 'direct' expression. Result is mobocracy.
Attitude towards property is communistic, negat-
ing all property rights. Attitude toward law is
that the will of the majority shall regulate,
whether it be based on deliberation or governed
by passion, prejudice, or impulse without re-
straint for consequences. Results in demogog-
ism, agitation, discontent, anarchy.' "-Cited by
R. A. Brady, The Spirit and Structure of German
Fascimp. 278.
-Harold Ossepow.
Reply To Mud Slinging'
To the Editor:
I have no desire to influence the beliefs of
individuals who find consolation and comfort in
psychic phenomena. When, however, indivi-
duals of such faith accuse a group of scientists
of '"mud slinging" becau e they do not feel the
need of.such consolation, I believe a reply is in
order.
Mr. Greville, in this column, recently criticized
psychologists for refusing to accept Professor
Rhine's experimental evidence of mental telep-
athy and clairvoyance. He considers them unin-
formed on the very important subject of E.S.P.
and too prejudiced "to accept findings which
do not fit in with certain preconceived theories."
Mr. Greville is justified in his contention that
non-psychologists have been more ready to .ac-
cept E.S.P. than psychologists. It is also true
that non-physicists are more likely to accept
the possibility of perpetual motion machines
than are physicists. Mathematicians often re-
ject calculations that non-mathematicians ac-
cept. Must we conclude that the untrained in-
dividuals in a certain science are the better
judges of what constitutes proof for a theory in
that science? Apparently Mr. Greville believes
this is true, at least when he is part of the
group not technically trained in the field in ques-
tion.

To an unprejudiced person, the trained men
in a field are regarded as most qualified to eval-
uate experimental findings and, on the subject of
mental telepathy, psychologists are in the best
position to give an evaluation. Psychologists, in
general, do not believe in mental telepathy and
clairvoyance, despite Professor Rhine's contribu-
tions on these subjects. Periodically similar
claims of absolute proof for such phenomena
have been made, so Rhine's experiments have
not been a surprise to psychologists. In fact
they have not even surprised those who now
enthusiastically accept Rhine's conclusions since
such people, on the whole, knew from their own
experiences that telepathy and clairvoyance
were facts.
Psychologists, as well as other scientists, be-
lieve that experimental findings should be the
product of the subject matter investigated and
should be independent of the investigator. Re-
garding the experiments on E.S.P. there is con-
troversy on this very important point. On the
one hand, to my knowledge, nine separate in-
vestigators have confirmed Rhine's findings. All
of these were published in the Journal of Para-
psychology, a journal recently founded and de-
voted to publications on this subject. Most of
the investigations are by former students of
Rhine and seven of the nine (including Rhine

to add further to the negative evidence. Mr.
Greville says that prominent magazines have
published articles on his work. But even more
prominent psychological periodicals have pub-
lished article's to the contrary.
Rhine's technique is simple enough for un-
trained individuals to utilize. (Rhine encour-
ages this). It should therefore be possible for
other psychologists, fro matter what their faith,
men with reputations at stake who have nothing
to gain by obtaining negative results, to duplicate
Rhine's findings. (Rhine dismisses negative find-
ings by calling his technique too complicated for
others to use properly in many cases.) All ex-
periments must stand the test of verification by
other workers. It is this failure to find corrobo-
ration for the mathematically sound findings of
several other investigators which has led to the
non-acceptance of their theories.
I have confined my discussion to one point
only, that concerning the data upon which inter-
pretations of mental telepathy and clairvoyance
rest. The data that Rhine presents are unques-
tionably not chance records, but they are also
not sufficiently above chance to justify a claim
for mental .telepathy which would make even
crude communication of thought possible. One
can make as good a claim against mental telep-
athy and clairvoyance as for it fr6m Rhine's
own data. Since only some investigators can
obtain such data, there is no pressing need for
explaining why his subjects show better than
chance performance. This does not mean that
Rhine is dihonest; nor does it follow that be-
cause he is honest his experimental results and
interpretations must be accepted. Space does not
permit a discussion of other reasons why psychol-
ogists do not support Rhine. For these, a recent
paper by Wolfe may be consulted. (Am. Jour.
Psychiat, 94, 1938, pp. 943-955.)

ine ecident Prevention
To the Editor:-
Pending the results of the investigation which
will seek to determine the cause of the mine ex-
plosion which took forty-five lives at Grundy,
Virginia, may I point out that the sacrifice of
life and property might have been prevented.
The Associated Press account stated, "the explo-
sion, believed caused by dust . . ." would indicate
that the mine was not rock-dusted, a simple pre-
ventive to coal dust explosions which is com-
pulsory in Great Britain and some few states in
this country.
Mr. John B. Andrews, writing in the journal of
the American Association of Labor Legislation
states that in the United States, where mines
are more shallow and less hazardous, that our
mining methods arethe most dngerous in the
world. We have, he says, "A greater number and
higher rate of occurrence of fatal coal mining
accidents than any other important producing
country."
F For the five years ending 1934, ,the fatal box
score per thousand miners follows:
France.................1.03
Great Britain ............1.34.
Germany..............2.23
United States ............4.26
Indiana passed a rock-dusting law in 1927
and it is estimated that two hundred men were
saved in a single explosion which took place at
Sullivan last July.
-H. P. Marley.
In Re: Mr. Baird
To the Editor:
Justus N. Baird, Jr., '38E maintains that be-
cause the editorial policy of the Daily has been
of late contrary to his desires the editorials
should be relegated to the Forum column "to
struggle with the biased opinions of the unen-
lightened hoi-polloi" and it pleases me to note
that Mr. Baird's opinions may be considered
biased and coming from an unenlightened hoi-
polloi since he admits that the Forum column is
one medium of expressing these opinions. Conse-
quently may we not dismiss Mr. Baird's opinion
of the Daily as being only personal, biased and
not viewed objectively?
But what is really hurting his feelings? It
grieves me so to hear of such pain. He scoffs

at the idea that "several Forum letters were
printed at the time bemoaning the Board's ac-
tion, saying that it stifled freedom of the Press
and cheapened the value of the editorials." And
now he rejoices because "The recent tenor of
Daily editorials has shown the action of the
Board to have been well taken."
Judging from Mr. Biard's moaning I am fully
convinced that he is an ardent believer in the
American Constitution-even though it is the
most unique in existence-which has governed
us for the past 150 years. Perhaps he has for-
gotten that it guarantees us the right of free
speech and press or maybe these words have no
meaning today or probably he prefers that such
cherished liberties be subjected and deprived.
At times the Daily editorials contain state-
inents with which I am not in complete sym-
pathy, yet I feel that they should have the priv-
ilege to express their beliefs. This privilege the
Constitution guaiantees them, that of "freedom
of the press."

It Seems To Me
By HEYWOOD BROUN
The next time the New York Coun-
cil meets I intend to urge B. Char-
ney Vladeck or some other progres-
sive to introduce an ordinance. And
it will read: "Anybody within the
confines of the Greater City who so-
licits an autograph shall be liable to
a fine of not less than $10,000 and
not more than 45 years in jail. Elec-
trocution shall be optional."
I 'speak out of no personal bitter-
ness. Autograph hunters do not as-
sail me. I am approached only when
I get in the line of drive of some de-
voted band which is waiting outside
a theatre for Greta Garbo or Gene
Tunney. In such circumstances
some apprentice who is still trying
to perfect his technique may wander
over and say, "Aren't you Howard
Brown. Give me your autograph.
Sign here."
For a time, in order to encourage
trade, I made a practice of supplying
a photograph and five cents for a cup
of coffee. And even so, I failed to
lure many.
But yesterday I saw the pack in full
cry, and it is a terrifying experience.
It so happens that I know Charles
Butterworth. Indeed, I knew him
when. In those days Charlie had
nothing but a dead pan and a mono-
logue of his own composition. He
played banquets and culture clubs
and when he got $10 from an Elks'
smoker that was a gala night.
I Did My Best
I used to help him spend the money.
The arrangement was that he would
buy the drinks and the breakfast and
I would pay for the taxicab. Aside
from 30 or 40 bartenders nobody knew
Butterworth at that time. In those
days there was a neat little place in
Harlem called Pod and Jerry's, which
didn't really get started until about
5 in the morning. And then in the
rosy dawn we would motor through
the park back to our respective gar-
rets.
It was the custom of Charlie to lean
forward and say to the driver gravely,
"Remember, boy, slow on the
straightaways and fast around the
curves."..
These dots indicate a lapse of time.
By now Charles Butterworth has be-
come a star of stage, radio and the
silver screen. I read in the papers
that he was pausing briefly in New
York on his way to London, and on
the chance I called him up. It was
a little difficult because I had to send
my name through two valets and a
personal secretary before I got him.
Nevertheless, I was able to obtain an
appointment. Mr. Butterworth had
taken the top floor of a midtown
hotel. When I got to him he was af-
fable and as democratic as Thomas
Jefferson.
I was afraid he might not remem-
ber, but he held out his hand cordially
and said, "I never forget a face."
The Lure Of The Bar
We sat for a few minutes in his
private solarium discussing the de-
velopment of the American drama.
We differed slightly, although with-
out rancor, as to the position which
posterity would assign to Eugene
O'Neill. But something was lacking.
I missed the roar of the crowd.
"How about going down to the bar
and having a drink, Charlie?" I
suggested. He gave me a frightened
and a furtive look before he consent-
ed.
"Has the lad gone dry or high-hat
on me?" I thought, but his apprehen-
sions were well founded. We had not
been seated more than two minutes
before an urchin peered through the
window and said, "Charles Butter-
worth!" the Zulus were upon us. The

autograph hunters sprang up from
the very paving stones. I have 50
fountain pen scars in my right shoui-
der blade to prove it.
Grabbing the star by the wrist. I
said, "Quick, we can cut our way out.
I know a hideaway."
I took him to a dour and dignified
club which has been termed New
York's nearest equivalent to the Tomb
of Napoleon. The bartender used to
pour whisky for General Grant. The
waiter in the dressing room was a
drummer boy in the Mexican War. As
we came to the second cocktail Mr.
Butterworth said, "Let me sign for
this." I brushed him aside and re-
plied, "This is my club. You can sign
nothing."
But when I turned away for a mom-
ent to get a cigaret I found Mr. But-
terwor th laboriously writing out his
name. Impatiently I cried, "Let me
do that.",

Drops The Peii
For Th eSword.

JAMES P. LARDNER, 23 years old,
made a momentous and meaningful
decision last week. The son of the late Ring
Lardner, author and newspaperman, he gave
up his heritage and a job as war correspondent
in Spain for the Paris edition of the New York
Herald Tribune to enlist in a Spanish Govern-
mnent international brigade artillery unit.
First and last, Lardner is a newspaperman.
His father was one of the most famous. It is the
function of a newspaperman to report the news
impartially. Young Lardner was right on the
scene of the present Spanish War. He saw the
rising tide of fascism threatening to sweep the
last vestiges of the democratic Spanish govern-
ment. away under a wave of German, Italian and
Moorish troops. He saw Franco's bombers, huge
vultures of the skies furnished by Hitler and Mus-
solini. dropping destruction upon the helpless
civilians in the Loyalist cities, civilians whose
only crime was to be loyal to their popularly-
elected government.
Finally Lardner could hold back no longer.
'Something has to be done to halt fascism's ad-
vance," he said. And he enlisted in the Loyalist
army.
It is to be hoped that other newspapermen
and newspaper owners will report the news with
the sincerity that Lardner did. It cannot be ex-
pected that very many news writers in the world
will switch from typewriter to machine gun. But
