General Cedillo And
The 'Go Wi, I....
IN 1903, with American battleships and
troops nearby, revolutionists in Co-
lombia set up their own state of Panama, which
soon granted the United States valuable canal
concessions; in 1922 Louis Borno, pro-American
replaced Sudre Dartiguenave as president of
Haiti; and in 1933 Grau San Martin fell as pres-
ideht of Cuba before the Mendietta party, which
was more favorably looked upon by the United
Now in 1938 President Lazaro Cardenas of
Mexico has stepped on American toes by claim-
ing for the Mexican nation great oil properties
held by American and British companies. And
shortly thereafter President Cardenas has found
on his hands a revolt by a provincial leader, Gen-
eral Saturnino Cedillo.
The Cedillo uprising evokes an interesting con-
jlecture about new potentialities for America's
polity of "good will" toward the Latin-American
countries. Through this "good will" the United
States, at the apparent sacrifice of important
economic and strategic interest, and of its prac-
tical rights as a strong nation against weak na-
tions, has attempted to negotiate with its south-
ern neighbors on a basis of political equality and
has undertaken to carry on no part in the in-
ternal affairs of these countries. This has called
for disassociation from any favorable upheavals
or political dissensions of its neighbors.
The oil expropriations of the President of Mex-
ico have put that policy to a good test. To date,
In the face of apparent British efforts to force the
United States hand toward pressure on Mexico,
and in spite of the efficiency of different Amer-
ican policies with regard to the same question
in 1925 and 1927, the new policy has stood the
test. The administration has indicated no strong
reprisal against Mexico nor any efforts to win
the support of special parties within the country
for a more sympathetic program toward Amer-
ican interests.
The uprising, however coming as it does short-
ly after Cardenas' blow to the large American
business interests and apparently without any
knowledge on the part of the United States gov-
ernment, causes one to wonder whether the influ-
ence of the United States is not so great in those
American countries where United States capital
has been widely invested that the old manipula-
tions of the government are not necessary to
achieve American political interests. If this is
so, the new "good will" policy of the government
is destined to be of the utmost importance to the
United States and to the world at large. The
United States will be free to spread its sermon
of equality and peace among nations while at-
taining its own interests in the Americas.

Apathelti Liberals?
To the Editor:
A letter in Sunday's Daily implied that a leftist
faction dominates the Progressive Club. The
writer deplored the lack of a campus organiza-
tion in which all liberals, of all shades of opin-
ion, could voice their sentiments and carry them
into action.
However, may I ask why non-leftist liberals do
not join the Progressive Club The Progressive
Club has never had a closed membership. The
policies of this organization are broad enough
to embrace all liberal'sentiment, and1 any stand
on specific,issues by the Progressive Club is de-
termined by majority vote. The leftists have
never conspired to keep non-leftists from voting.
The truth of the matter is that middle-of-the-
road liberals have never been interested enough.
in liberalism to join this organization and voice
their outlooks.
-Frieda Kaufman.
To Clarify Things
To the Editor:
In Sunday's Daily, accompanying a proposal
for a new Liberl Club, Fafni remarks: "The ex-
treme leftists fail to realize that they are the
greatest creators of fascists." Is this implication
of a cause-result relationship between leftists
and fascists representative of the type of liberal
analysis that will stem from "an organization
to be a reflection of liberal sentiment on the
In the process of history the fascist state is
the almost inevitable form of political, social
and economic organization growing out of the
successive crisis in national capitalist economies
and the breakdown of capitalist democracies. It
derives its structure and dynamics from (1) the
tendency for monopoly capitalist society to con-
solidate and extend itself on a national scale in
order to survive against crisis internally and pro-
vide a new basis for effective expansion, (2) the
conjunction of all the socially reactionary forces
in society with this tendency, (3) crystallization
of mass rebellion in the face of crisis through-
out society as a whole around this tendency.
Like the Social Revolution, the fascist move-
ment springs from the rebellious unrest of all
social groups, but the social revolutionary im-
pulses of the masses are synthesized with the in-
tensified monopoly capitalist program of the
classes in the Fascist party and state. This syn-
thesis comes about on the basis of:
1.Offering the activist discontented ele-

ments release in direct action against easily
dramatized and familiar enemies.
2. Consolidating and sharpening the
social fear of (a) social conflicts such as
strikes and class warfare, (b) the strange,
foreign and unknown, such as communism
and "reds," (c) the alien, such as Jews, Japs,
and "foreign agitators."
3. Offering all groups security in terms of
traditionally supported reforms, solutions,
and panaceas.
4. Capitalizing on the heightened nation-
alist attitudes growing from (a) imperialist
rivalries, (b) national insecurity in the face
in a formal accusation who made the move that
started the trouble.
The revolt does not appear very lasting, and
Cedillo has had no support from the nation
as a whole outside of his home province. Per-
haps the conflict is only one of many revolts
that have arisen in Mexico from the programs of
greater national unity and break-down of the

J/fe emjfo Me
Heywood Broun
For the sake of the record I would like to ex-
press my feeling that both Simon Gerson and
Stanley Isaacs appeared to advantage before the
McNaboe Committee.
It seems to me that the President of the Bur-
ough of Manhattan made a perfectly proper
appointment. I have known
Gerson as a reporter for sev-
eral years, and I share the
feeling of his other news-
paper associates, who regard
him as a highly competent
and useful citizen.
But even if I thought that
the appointment had been
harmful or unwise I would
still feel that the question
involved was not one of major importance. The
so-called popular clamor has been fomented. I
do not think that the amount of news and ed-
itorial space which has been devoted to the case
is justified by sound journalistic precedent.'
I congratulate Mr. Isaacs on his courage. But
since I think thewhole business has been vastly
overplayed I have no intention of writing an en-
ire column on the subject, but prefer instead
to deal with something really important, such as
the question of a name for Mr. C. V. Whitney's
colt out of Top Flight by Man 0' War. Naturally
the name of the sire and dam should be linked,
but Joe Williams is making it much more difficult
by stipulating that there should also be some ref-
erence to the Derby, since that happens to be
the birthday date of the young race horse,
* * * *
The Naming Of Horses
As a professional horse namer I am not eligible
for the competition. I had thought of Sea Plane,
since that includes the suggestion both of naval
warfare and altitude, but there is no suggestion
of the Derby in that. In a fugitive way I toyed
with Reserved Seat, since from such a vantage
point at Churchill Downs one might see plain.
That I tossed aside as unworthy of me.
Still, if Colonel Williams were not inclined to
bar puns you could do a really intricate play on
words and call the horse Shelley. That's a nice
name in itself, and the connotation would come
from the line. "And did you once see Shelley
plain?" However, it would be too much to expect
race track fans to carry not only a program but
also "Bartlett's Book of Familiar Quotations."
I know one name which dods take in both the
Man O' War and Top Flight strain and also drops
a Derby hint, but I'm under the impression that
another horse is using it. The name I have in
mind is Brown Bomber. But maybe the horse
is black or roan.
I studied the art of naming thoroughbreds, at
the knee of Herbert Bayard Swope, who used to
be a newspaper man before he became State Rac-
ing Commissioner. I can't remember the breed-
ing, but the Commissioner was very proud when
he thought up the name Sidereal for a promising
yearling. It didn't turn out so well because all
the gamblers in the betting ring invariably re-
ferred to the horse as Side Reel, which spoiled
And terrible things happen to horses with
French names when eager bettors are trying to
get down two dollars to show just before the bar-
rier is sprung. What chance has a horse called
Fils De Liral in a situation like that?
I do not want to seem a narrow nationalist, but
I believe the Jockey Club should save the poor
bookmakers by insisting on the exclusive use of
the American language on our native tracks. Of
late there has been a sizeable invasion of horses
from Chile, and there be few who give just the
proper nuances to the name of Caballero 2nd.
Sounds Which Sing
It has been said that good horses have good
names; but that it not always true. Twenty
Grand, Grey Lag, Gallant Fox and War Admiral
all have a swing to them, but there was a Man

O' War colt which won a Kentucky Derby undert
the not too exciting label of Clyde Van Dusen.
Moreover, I am a little weary of finding that all
the sons of Gallant Fox are named by the simple
process of changing the adjective, so that you
get Wise Fox or Fighting Fox or Crafty Fox, and
so on indefinitely: That's too easy.
Seabiscuit was not what I would consider a
stand out in the matter of names, but he be-
comes more pleasing to the ear now that the
railbirds have by tacit consent shortened it to the
Biscuit. For me the glamor of the big match
race grows when I hear arguments which run,
."Do you think the Admiral can beat the Biscuit?"
I have said that my own amateur standing as a
horse namer is gone. A very promising filly of
the Falaise Stable marks me as a professional.
She is by Sun Briar out of Comixa. I hope I've
spelled that last name right, but, at any rate,
I suggested Lady Nicotine. They tell me she's a
neat trick, and I think it's a nice name.
of the general war crisis, (c) the fixation of
the attention of all groups on the symbol
of the state in the struggle for a solution
of their problems.
5. Capitalizing and sharpening the hos-
tility of all groups to democratic institutions
as the cause of economic breakdown and
political impotence.

A new generation has grown since
"Liliom" was first produced in New
York in the post-war period of disil-
lusionment. How our contemporary
audience will take the frankly senti-
mental story of "Liliom" is a matter
of conjecture. The listeners last
night of the second presentation of
the Ann Arbor Dramatic Season were,
on the whole, lethargic.
"Liliom" is Tonio Selwart's and Re-
becca Tarwater's show. In the name
role, Mr. Selwart was all of the "bad,
rough, wicked, unhappy, dear boy,"
Miss Tarwater, as Julie, called him-
after Liliom was dead and it was too
late. For Ferenc Molnar's 'legend' is
essentially a tragedy of inarticulate-
ness. Liliom, the cocksure circus bar-
ker, has been so buffeted about by life
that love can never find verbal ex-
pression in him. He is ashamed to
admit that he can't bear to see Julie
weep and he can not tell her that he
loves her. And it is only after he has
'died that Julie can find the courage
to tell him that she loves him. It is
all too late, so sentimentally late.
But we could afford to let ourselves
go along with the many moods of the
play, if at one moment it was intellec-
tual legerdemain, as in the heaven of
Liliom's primitive theology, a heaven
ruled by mundane powers; or, if at
another moment, it was blatant chi-
canery, as when just after Liliom is
pronounced dead and the condolences
come, as if in a cataclysmic downfall,
that both Liliom and Julie are better,
off this way; or if it were mawkishly
sentimental, as when Liliom returns
to earth after spending 16 years in
purgatory as penitence for his obstin-
acy, slaps his daughter's hand and
she does not feel it.
Mr. Selwart plays his part for all
that it is worth, with irrepressible
buoyancy and with a clear-cut crea-
tion. Miss Tarwater's Julie was in
good contrast to Mr. Selwart's Liliom.
She played with quiet restraint, dig-i
nity, and simplicity. It was fortunate
theatre to have these two on the(
stage together. Frederic Tozere, asi
the slinking Ficsur who leads Liliom
on to his ultimate destruction, seemed
rather illogical with his cockney ac-
cent. (As a matter of fact, there were
so many different varieties of speech
on the stage last night, that it proved1
disconcerting.) Marie Brown, asI

More For Fafni
To the Editor:
In answer to Mr. Fafni's letter
pleading for a truly liberal organiza-,
tion on campus, we believe that such;
an organization already exists in the
Liberal Students' Union. This or-
ganization offers students the chance
to express all types of opinion. No onei
group dominates the discussion. Due
to the fact that all shades of opinion
are represented, the conclusionsi
reached are truly representative of a1
sentiment which moves in the liberalI
tradition rather than stands in it.
Another factor which might be men-
tioned is that younger faculty mem-
bers and non-students are often pres-
ent to contribute to the discussion.

sectarian group, meets at 7:30 p.m.

the bill providing for construction of
a Government radio station. The
purpose of the measure-to enable the
United States to administer an "anti-

broadcasts that now are deluging
Latin America-had much to com-
mend it. However, as was brought out
at the hearings, commercial radio
chains are willing to give the Gov-

without charge, for such broadcasts.
