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..

Henlein And
Sudeten Autonomy;. ..
NTELLIGENT OBSERVERS of the
world scene have advanced the log-
ical contention that the composite democratic
states like the United States, the British Com-
monwealth, Switzerland and Czechoslovakia best
preserve the conception of rational political striv-
ing as opposed to hereditary passion. These are
the states that provide the practical alternative
in poitical organization to the militaristic-cave-
man ideology which threatens to demolish mod-
er civilization.
In this respect the minorities issue raised in
Czechoslovakia by Konrad Henlein, leader of the
Sudeten Deutsche, is of vital importance not only
for the continuance of peace in.Europe, but for
the existence of democracy in that country and,
in a larger sense, in the world.
Last week-end Henlein took a flying trip to
London, via Berlin, and after. conferring with
several British leaders, gave no indication that
he would conciliate :in demanding greater auto-
nomy for his German followers. It is, in fact,
becoming increasingly clear }that what the Hen-
leinists-and behind them Germany-most wish
to avoid is a reasonable settlement. The demands
made at the Carlsbad convention last April are
still regarded as an ultimatum, and they have
rejected every one of the liberal offers of con-
ciliation made by the Prague government.
The eight-point program presented by Hen-
lein offers an interesting study in authoritarian-
ism. He frankly threw off all pretense that the
Sudeten German movement is inspired by local
grievances against Prague's rule, declaring that
his followers, "like Germans in every part of the
world" accept the Nazj ideology, and will no
longer "tolerate a state of affairs that means
for us war in time of peace." His program in-
cludes full equality in representation of Sudeten
Oermans and Czechs, which would mean an
abandonment of the fundamental Czech concept
that the Germans are a minority in the Czecho-
slovakian state, appointment of German state
employees in all German districts, and full libertN
for Germans to proclaim their Germanism and
their "adhesion to the common ideology of Ger-
mans."
Without overstepping the bounds of objectivity,
it is safe to observe that the Czechs have shown
themselves better handlers of minorities than
have the Germans. Some of these demands may
yet be met in a modified form, but Prague's
hesitancy is understandable. Complete accept-
ance would mean the establishment on Czech ter-
ritory of a totalitarian state within a state, and
force the republic to the position of a German
vassal. In their essence Henlein's demands
mean that 22% of the population of Czechoslo-
vakia shall be entitled to renounce the basic prin-
ciples of the state in which they live-a legal
right to be disloyal citizens of the Czechoslovak
R.n,1hhe certainlv grotesque demand in the

to Henlein's demands, only to face "peaceful eco-
nomic strangulation and gradual dismember-
ment by Germany." Still, the Czechs have proven
themselves able politicians and sincere demo-
crats, and to despair beforehand over the fate
of a people with those qualities, is to admit that
they are meaningless in the face of barbarism
and violence.

Our Inconsistent
Foreign Policy.. ..
LAST WEEK our government through
some of its agencies handed a sharp
rebuff to the blustering Nazis who are rattling
the gun wagons and disturbing the peace of the
world. At the same time, the other pretentious
leader of world fascism was given to understand
by our government that we are not in the least
forced by manufactured fear into recognizing the
seizure of territories by conquest. Nevertheless,
the State Department has since, in effect, con-
tradicted its admirable stand.
The afirst important sign of our refusal to ad-
here to the supine acceptance of every fait
accompli of the fascist conquerors was the speech
of Secretary of War Woodring. It warned the
dictatorship nations' that if they push too far
they will inevitably provoke war. Perhaps the
most vital sentence in the speech is this one: "It
is essential that continued aggression stop be-
fore things get out of hand."
Immediately after the admonition, Mussolini's
mouthpiece, Virginio Gayda, wrote in charac--
teristic arrogant fashion his dictator's dissatis-
faction with our attitude. It must be remem-.
bered that the fascists fighting in Spain want
more than anything else a continuation of Amer-
ica's policy of "neutrality" which allows arms
to go to them and not to the democratic govern-
ment of Spain. Secretary Woodring's quoted
sentence was an, indication that the embargo on
Spain might be lifted to support the Spanish gov-
ernment. In effect, th'en, Mussolini was seeing
the. American government as a major obstacle
to his successful war of conquest on the Iberian
Peninsula.
.** * *
Later in the week Secretary of State Hull said
that the United States would continue to main-
tain its stated policy that it would not recognize
territory acquired -by conquest. In more ex-
plicit language Secretary Hull was refusing to
accept the conquest of Ethiopia, if it can be called
that, for Emperor Haile Selassie claims to have
information that his countrymen are still actively
battling the encroachment of Italian troops.
The German government also had reason to
resent America's attitude. Our government re-
fused to sell helium gas to the Nazis after
weeks of bickering back and forth. Despite any
claims to the contrary, one can count on Ger-
many's former record as a promise-breaker to
believe that the helium would have been used
for military purposes.
The second strike scored against the, Nazi ag-
gressiveness was the note by our Berlin Ambas-
sador Hugh Wilson to the effect that Germany
should observe her trade treaty of 1923 with us
by recognizing the rights of American citizens in
business there. The note was written upon re-
ceipt of the news that a Nazi decree against
property of Jews would operate against American
Jews. Our government was asking for the recog-
nition of treaty obligations. The Germans made
no effective answer.
* * * *
If it was sincerely intended that the United
States as one of the most powerful ecoliomic and
political realms should rebuke the bullyism of
the dictators, then our State Department failed
in its efforts. For, realistically looking at the
situation, our State Department balked the at-
tempt to lift the embargo which our Neutrality
Act imposes on Spain, a legally elected govern-
ment with full national rights in the world. But
the German and Italian invaders of Spain are
able to sail ships out of American ports loaded
with war materials, to be used against a weaker
sister democracy. /
If we were intending seriously to admonish
and quarantine two war-crazed dictators, then by
all means our government should have allowed
the Spanish government to drive them out. Our
actions should have followed on the path laid

down by Secretary Woodring: ". . that continued
aggression stop before things get out of hand."
In such action was America's opportunity to
serve the cause of world peace.
Albert Mayio.
Esiiwoja's Democracy
At a time when the advantages of dictatorial
government are noisily preached to the world by
shirted proprets at the microphone, it is reassur-
ing to hear of a country which left and has now
rejoined the democratic fold. Esthonia, south
of Leningrad, on the eastern shore of the Baltic,
a country of little more than a million people,
has had a hard history. One of Europe's battle-
grounds in the past, it fought as part of the
Russian Empire in the Great War; it was over-
run by Germany in 1917 and invaded by revolu-
tionary Russia in the next year. Estonia rose
quickly from the ruins of the war; under a Con-
stitution which put the power of the state "in
the hands of the people" she built for herself
the complicated social services of a modern state
and showed an excellent progressiveness.
The new order did not escape its difficulties,
and in the depressed years, 1931-33 when Fascism
raised its ugly insubordinate head, democracy
was abandoned. But the President, M. Pats, and
his soldier ally, General Laidoner had no liking
for the hard necessity of ruling as dictators.
"If we want," said M. Pats, in 1935, "to establish
natural life once more on solid foundations, we
must have a new Constituent Assembly." This
year a new Constitution became law. The Pres-
ident's powers are still great. He appoints cab-
inet ministers but the First Chamber, elected by
popular ballot on the "English system," can force
that cabinet tn resign. The change came auietly

The Editor
Gets Told...
An O~rcid
To the Editor:
It is with the sincere hope that the editors of
the Michigan Daily can stand a little praise
that I offer this comment. on your very fine
newspaper.
I was passing through Ann Arbor this morning
and chanced upon your morning edition. Having
a little more than passing fancy in news-sheets,
working on metropolitan dailies for 20 years, I
was immediately taken by your near-perfect
makeup. I was astounded to learn that this
paper is entirely a student job.
May I say that your front page would do
credit to many of our big-town dailies? The
heads were punchy, concise, direct. And the
choice and play of stories could not be bettered.
Your editorial page shows distinct signs of
the liberalism mentioned in one of your front
page stories. Why the signed editorials? Censor?
You might be interested to know that I was sitting
right next to Broun when he wrote the column
in your paper this morning.
All in all, your paper looks exceedingly fine
and it gives me a great source of pleasure to see
young boys doing such excellent work. The
night editor who was responsible for this morn-
ing's lay-out can work for me anytime. Good luck.

Reviving The 'Ghost'
To the Editor:
I think that the severity of your reviewer's
report of Sidney Howard's "The Ghost of Yankee
Doodle" was in part based on certain misconcep-
tions. For instance, his references to "chaos"
"the limbo of futility" and "the eternal fumbling
liberal," assume that Mr. Howard ought to have
written a propaganda play in which the answers
are neatly indicated instead of a problem play
which was intended all along to end with an in-
terrogation. One might as well find faut with
Shakespeare's clumsy art in making Hamlet ap-
pear hesitating and indecisive. Mr. Howard
means that life today is often chaotic and futile
and that the best that any of us can do is
to fumble; though, it should be added in fair-
ness to him, he believes we can worry along with
unconquerable courage, hope and good humor.
The strangest remark in the review is that
American life is here interpreted "in terms of
the upper income Bracket." Liberalism in the play
is embodied in four persons: a business man
within two weeks of bankruptcy, a lady in danger
of losing her home, a publisher whose liberal
paper, we are told, runs an annual deficit in the
best of times, and is now on the verge of
being closed out, and a discharged college pro-
fessor whose income could never have been large
and is now zero. Outside the windows is a mob
of the unemployed. There are only two char-
acters in the play who are even solvent, the news-
paper tycoon and the aged politician, and surely
Mr. Howard is not looking through their eyes in
this play!I
There are other and minor misconceptions,
For instance, it is true that the newspaper mag'-
nate is verbose and theatrical. He rents, because
he is the sort of man who does rant. It would be
as impossible to overact him as to overact Hitler.
For any of the other characters to act In such
a fashion would have been bad art, but none
of them do. Again, it is implied that the hero-
ine's lines are mere gags or wisecracks artificially
tacked on to her, so that the actress must speak
them "outside herself." This may be true of
some few of the lines, almost no modern (or
Elizabethan) dramatist has been able to resist
the temptation of getting off a good thing even at
an inappropriate moment; but that the heroine
should be witty is as much the author's inten-
tion as that she should be wise or brave. With-
out a daring wit she could never have attracted
Clevinger.
In short, the whole review, both as to the book
and the acting, takes as its premise that Sidney

Howard ought to have meant something else
than he did mean. Every work of art must be
criticized from the angle of its own intentions
It is unfair to call a gargoyle a badly carved
angel, and equally unfair to expect a subtle prob-
lem play dealing with the intellecttfal difficulties
and ethical hesitations of impoverished middle
class Americans to be a simple forthright anti-
capitalist tract.
I agree most heartily with your reviewer's
comnmendations of the acting of most of the
principal characters, and think that it might in-
deed have been even stronger. My main concern,
however, has been with the interpretation of Mr.
Howard's excellent play. I should be most sorry
if my expression of opinion at variance with that
of your reviewer should be taken as a criticism
of the policy of examining and discussing the ide-
logogical aspects of the drama. There is no bet-
ter means of ventilating ideas than on the stage;
and both Mr. Howard and the reviewer have
grasped the central point, that the drama. is
not a mere amusement to fill an idle hour, but
a major activity of the human spirit. In this,
as in so many matters, the Michigan Daily, dur-
ing the past three or four years in particular,
has been doing an educative work comparable to
that of any department of the University.

It Seems To Me
By HEYWOOD BROUN
Increasingly it becomes difficult for
the American reader to understand
foreign politics. It never was easy,
and the growth of Fascism has not
helped comprehension. I have par-
ticularly in mind the speech which
Mussolini made to many thousands
in the city of Genoa.
Here in our large industrial cen-
ters we come to think that we know
the Italians pretty well. As we see
them in our own communities they]
are distinguished by gaiety and a very
lively sense of humor. But the top
man seems to be a person who has4
never made a joke in his life or lis-
tened to one.
At times it almost seems as if]
Benito were trying to burlesque the
movement which he leads. Of course,
it isn't a laughing matter, and it will
take more than satire to stem the tide
upon which he rides at the moment.
Possibly the speeches may seem
less preposterous before they are put!
into - English. But the very back-
ground of these public appearances
always suggests an operatic setting.
Mussolini himself seems to be hang-
ing on to a high note, and at any
moment one expects to hear the vio-
lins and woodwinds chime in to swell
the effect. Verdi is just around the
corner.
And, worst of all, even the most
friendly correspondents can't make
it sound like a good production. One
suspects that a fly-blown troupe has
straggled into some small Western
city of the plains and that "Aida" is
about to be done very badly.
* * *
A Street In Genoat
Look at the scene in Genoa. "He
spoke to an enormous crowd packed
in the Piazza della Vittoria from a
high stand built in imitation of a
battleship prow." One wonders wheth-
er the Duce did not fear that some-
body might break a bottle of cham-
pagne over his head.
"At the foot of the stand were 16
large female figures with their arnis
raised in the Fascist salute symboliz-
ing the victories of Italian arms dur-
ing the Fascist regime." This would
seem to florid touch and also rather
generous bookkeeping, but it so hap-
pens that Mussolini is his own of-
ficial scorer. No errors are ever set
down. Miscues go as drives which1
were too hot to handle.
And speaking from a setting
adorned with palpable slices of ham,
the Duce proceeded to live up to the
scenery. In fact, he chewed it. ItI
was a papiermache prow and a tinsel1
oration. Public men in America are
not averse to discourses in which they
lay it on a little thick, but even the
most shameless of our native spell-
binders warms up a little before he
turns on his full effects. And there
is generally some process of letting
down here and there with what
passes for homely wit.
This is not so of Benito Mussolini.
An. oration by him is an aria from
start to finish, and not a note ever
falls below high C if he can help it.
He speaks not of today or tomorrow
but always in terms of eternity. The
alliance with Germany is not just
a successful diplomatic coup but an
alliance which is to be everlasting.
Speaking of agreements between him-
self and Hitler, the Duce said, "They
are something solemn and definitive
in history." Even the helter-skelter
pact pushed through with Chamber-
lain was mentioned with the dog-
matic statement, "This agreement will
be lasting."
- . * * * t
Jgal ing JWitg Destiny

He told his audience that his visit
to Geona closed one period of Genoese
history and opened a new one. Pos-
siblythis explains why Mussolini sel-
dom smiles and never laughs out loud.
One might as well expect a chuckle
to come from a still small voice in a
burning bush.
Probably the Emperors of ancient
Rome took themselves quite seriously,
too, but Julius Caesar in his Com-
mentaries once cracked a minor wit-
ticismn. If I remember my high school
Latin he did present the claim that
"Caesar said not unwittily." I have
forgotten the joke. But as I remem-
ber it wasn't very hot. And prob-
ably the great man-I trust he wasn't
ghosted-set it down because he felt
that even his lightest words should be
remembered.
Those old boys preened themselves.
and they, too, had the feeling that
what they said and did was carved in
stone, and would never be erased by
wind or weather. But the winds came.
The names of the Kings and great
ones of Rome remain. They are not
without their fame, but history has
caught up and passed them by. Much
of what they did is dust by now. And
if Mussolini were touched at all by
superstition he might have taken that
artificial prow from which he spoke
as a sort of omen. It will go back to
the lumber yard, and the 16 large
plaster ladies will return before long
to the chalk pile.
