The editorials published in The Michigan
Daily are written by members of the Daily
staff and represent the views of the writers
only.
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.
-Alexander G, Ruthven.
Mr. Abend
Begins To Doubt. .
FURTHER EVIDENCE that a Jap-
anese victory in China is by no
means an ultimate certainty is furnished by a
story in the New York. Times of May 31 witten
by a staff correspondent, Hallett Abend, from
Peiping, behind the Japanese lines. Mr. Abend
declares that "after a journey through. Man-
chukuo and North China," he begins to doubt
"for the first time since the outbreak of hostil-
ities nearly eleven months ago'. . . that Japan
will emerge profitably victorious from this unde-
clared war."
According- to Mr. Abend's observations in the
territory ' which has been overrun by the Jap
armies, "it is idle to say that the Japanese
have 'conquered' many provinces . .. the Jip-
anese mandate rarely runs beyond the range of
the Japanese guns." He further asserts that
careful inquiry has shown that nine-tenths of
the puppet government set up by the Japanese
in Peiping hopes for a Chinese victory, and that
many of the Chinese officials who have accepted
positions in the new government have done so in -
the hope of being of use to their country in
their positions.
As for the economic side of the war, Mr. Abend
declares that many "frank Japanese leaders, ad-
mit the seeming impossibility of arousing foreign
interest in the development of industries in
China, while conceding that Japan does not
have sufficient capital nor large enough technical
personnel to handle the huge task alone."
An example pf the extent to which the Com-
munists and other guerillas operating against
the Japanese work with the civilian population
against the invaders is furnished by the situation
in Paoting, the former capital of Hopeh prov-
ince. The place is surrounded by 20,000 Com-

munists, who enter the city at night when the.
Japanese garrison retirescto the barricaded sec-
tor, and fraternize, with the populace, obtaining
supplies and leaving again before sunrise.
The Chinese in Peiping, according to the
writer, are fond of recounting the old Chinese
fable about the giant serpent, which tried to
swallow a bull elephant. It began by swallowing
the elephant's trunk but choked and was tram-
pled. to death.

Mobilize Against
The Sex Criminal...
T HE WAVE of crimes against' helpless
and innocent chilUren now going on
leaves a lesson that should not be forgotten
when the first flurry of impotent excitement
has passed, for if any single thing has been
brought out by the reports as given in the papers

and real opportunities to meet the problems pre-
sented by it. They can find courses in the
University which deal objectively and scientifi-
cally with the social aims of delinquency, faulty
heredity and treatment of offenders of this na-
ture, and with such a knowledge they can decide
intelligently on legislation pertaining to the
prevention of intermarriage of the feeble-mind-
ed and to isolation or preferably sterilization of
homicidal sex criminals, of whom many are
known to be at large in all communities.
Social reform is the watchword of today, and
it is just as essential that this reform take place
in matters of safety and freedom from abuse, as
it is in matters concerning wage earning, child
labor, and old age pensions. Experience has
shown that many of the perpetrators of the
crimes against children have behind them a
record of imprisonment for previous offenses
of similar .nature. A famous warden who is
noted for his sympathy and understanding for
prisoners on parole has made the statement
that the type of criminal mentioned can never be
trusted if released.
With this as one thing to think about, it is
time that society began to look for positive pro-
grams of education against vicious and abnormal
crime, and of legislation to end it entirely. Cer-
tainly the safety of the citizens who take a con-
structive part in society should count far more
than maudlin sympathy for' irresponsible and
dangerous social unfits who prey on children
and take innocent lives.

Senior Lets OffI Steam
To the Editor:°
The past contributors of this letter column
have consistently shown their ability to express
their ideas well through their excellent command
of the English language. Hence, I hesitate to ex-
press for the first time my opinions of the fac-
ulty and student body of the University of Mic-
ian. But, as a senior, I think I should let
others know how I feel on the following issues.
The Michiganensian editors in the past years
have followed the practice of writing a letter to
the parents of those seniors who did not purchase
a yearbook. The purpose of the letter was to
beg the folks back home to buy a yearbook for
their son in college. Of what interest have those
hundreds of Michigan students who worked their
way through college in a yearbook which por-
trays fraternity life as the only college life? I
have no interest in a yearbook. The editor in
the letter to my folks said that it was probably
a mere oversight on my part that I did not order
a yearbook. Listen, editor of the 'Ehsian, I have
Been entirely on my own for nearly four years.
Every decision I made during that time, I made
myself. When I decided that I wanted no year-
book, I knew what I was doing. You suggested
that I do not have enough intelligence to know
what I am doing. Poof for you!
My next bone of contention is the lack of
more friendly and companionate "relationship
between the faculty and. student body. The cof-
fee hour was a step in the right direction, but
there. was a noticeable lack of cooperation on the
part of the faculty. The teas and receptions are
a farce as for promoting such relationships.
What about a more equitable distribution of
part-time jobs to the working students? By
equitable distribution I refer to the Union which
has part-time ,jobs which pay in some cases as
much as 60 cents an hour while other jobs in
other departments of the university pay half
that; and these jobs are just as responsible as
the Union work! Such a discrepancy should be
eliminated.
The dating situation here on this campus is
by no means satisfactory. Despite the fact that
there is a large surplus of boys, there are a few
girls who, on the evenings when the dormitories
have formals, stay in their rooms and cry, be-
cause they have no boy acquaintances. What
can be done about it, I don't know, but the
fraternities and sororities have developed a sort
of grapevine system to take care of their pledges.
This brings me to my next point.
The fraternity and sorority versus the inde-
pendent situation has usually been an under-
current issue. I cannot say anything about the
pros and cons of being a member of a Greek
letter society, but when you ask a sorority girl
for a date and she asks you to what house you

belong, then I get irritated. Don't the sorority
girls think the independents know how to dress
and how to use their manners? Being a mem-
ber of a fraternity doesn't insure one of possess-
ing the manners of a gentleman, and neither
does being an independent bar one from knowing
such refinements. Although I have met and
dated-some very nice sorority girls, I can't help
but retain my general impression of the majority
of them-an impression which is not very com-
plimentary.
I realize my comments are not constructive,
but I am sort of disgusted. Can you blame me?
-B.X.C.

ifeeiu lo Me
Heywood, Broun
Gettysburg was consecrated by a conflict and
dedicated anew by what is probably the finest
speech in the English language. And so there
might well be a sound tradition that these acres
should not again be exposed to war or oratory.
Senator Vandenberg is no violet, but I think
that Arthur was audacious
when he stood in Lincoln's
spot on Monday and at-
tempted to match 'his
phrases with those of the
Emancipator.
'The Michigander's effort
to interpret the Gettysburg
address as a defense of re-
action was presumptuous.
But the Senator's willing-
ness to challenge comparisonwith the prose pace
of Abraham Lincoln puts him into the class of
the foolhardy.
In a place where words have been set to
marching, no man should be permitted to make
them parade in limping lines. Vandenberg men-
tioned the fact that Lincoln had his say in
"272 vital words." But then he arrogated to him-
self the right to stay no longer.
Abe And Little Arthur
Keep in your mind the compact, quality of the
enduring address and then compare it with such
'.a slack-wire sentence as this from the pedestrian
performance of Arthur H.:-"Our deadliest foe
will be our own complaisance-our own indivi-
dual self-centered inclination to take the easiest
way-if, as and when the plea'of some emergency
invites us to the first relatively inoffensive steps
which turn our feet away from the paths of
which Lincoln spoke."
That is not English prose; that is Choctaw.
There ought to be an anti-lynching bill to pro-
tect our native language. Men in public life
should not be permitted to leave clauses hanging.
The pity of it is that Senator Arthur H. Van-
denberg is still seriously mentioned as a possible
candidate for the Republican nomination in 1940.
His povrty of ideas stands logically as a greater
barrier than his ineptitude in sentence structure.
And yet I think there bught to be a literacy
test for Presidents. The job makes it necessary
for our Chief Eecutive to be articulate, and to
set down words which cannot be drained off
down the sluice pipe. '
And in this respect, it seems to me, that
America has been extremely fortunate. In spite
of the fact that Mr. Harding was technically a
newspaper editor I would say that only five of
our Presidents were men trained specifically in
the art of writing. Possibly I am being unfair to
the Adamses, but my list would include Madison,
Wilson, both Roosevelts and Jefferson. And yet
Cleveland, who wrote awkwardly, left some tell-
ing phrases behind him. The Coolidge legend
had the solid foundation of a few good cracks.
Washington, the first business man in the
White House, coined noble phrases.
Top In The Ranking
Lincoln, of course, was not only the finest
stylist of all American Presidents but also a man
who set a mark at which all men of letters
can shoot. It is possible that even as ponderous
a tub-thumper as Vandenberg might take on
something of grace, dignity and humility if ele-
vated to high office. The risk is too great.
Certainly he imposes on the public when he
undertakes to say that Lincoln was an Old Guard
Republican at heart. Let this little man chew
upon the fact that Lincoln undeniably did say:
-"This country with its institutions belongs to
the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall
grow weary of the existing government they
can exercise their constitutional right of amend-
ing it or their revolutionary right to dismember
or overthrow it."

Behind Autarchy
Secretary Hull did not exaggerate last week
when he described the dangers of autarchy, or
absolute sovereignty and national self-sufficiency.
As he pointed out, the development of order
under law and the growth of international com-
merce have been two of the principal forces in
shaping the growth of Western civilization, and
the revitalization of these forces is "an urgent
and outstanding task." In the long run, as he
continued, excessive efforts toward autarchy will
undermine and break down the domestic eco-
nomic structure of the country persisting upon
such a course, yet "too many nations in the
world are today steering straight in the direction
of such an economic, political and social Niag-
ara."
The same point has been made powerfully by
Ludwig von Mises, the Austrian economist, in a
recent pamphlet on "The Disintegration of the
International Division of Labor." As Mises shows,
the new, like the old, arguments for protection-
ism and autarchy are primarily not economic
but political and military. He examines all the
"modern" arguments in turn-the argument of
national prestige, the war argument, the war ar-
gument in neutral countries, the wages argu-
ment, the overpopulation argument, the mone-
tary or foreign exchange argument-and shows
that each is partly or wholly fallacious, and that
protectionism, exchange control and autarchy
time and again defeat their purpose and often
bring about the very opposite of the results they
are designed to achieve.
Autarchy, it is important to remember, is
never an isolated phenomenon. It is alway

Best Short Stories
THE BEST SHORT STORIES OF
1938, edited by Edward J. O'Brien.
Houghton Mifflin Co., New York.
$2.50.
By JOSEPH GIES
Of particular interest to Ann Arbor
readers of Mr. O'Brien's annual short
story anthology is the inclusion in
this year's collection of a story by
Harvey Swados, a student at the{
University. The story "The Ama-
teurs," first appeared in the late
Contemporary in the fall of 1936.
The best criticism of the story
which I have heard came from Mr.
Swados himself. Mr. Swados, al-
though he may not be my best friend
is certainly one of my most intimatE
friends. He told me, in a moment of
confidence, that although the plot of
the story is good, the naivete and in-
genuousness of the style place "The
Amateurs" pretty definitely in thn
rank of second rate stuff. It is, in hi,
conception, a mere fragment, inter-
esting in itself, but not too well done
This, I think, is the fault of a good
many of the stories in this year's col-
lection. Mr. O'Brien himself recog-
nized this when he wrote in the intro-
duction, "A year which produced on(
great story would be an exceptional
one." This year the stories can, I be-
lieve be divided into three categories
a few stories which you will read and
remember, a great many which yot
will enjoy and then forget, and a
few which are so bad as to be un-
readable.
In the first category -I would put
The Spaniard, by Prudencio de Pe-
reda, a fine story of a Spaniard wht
fights on the Fascist side during th
war, but realizes that he is a Span-
iard before he dies; Christ In Con-
crete, by Pietro di Donato, about a
group of workers who are crushed tc
death when a building collapses, ane
Pro Arte, by Allan Seager, a former
instructor at the University.
In the second category belong most
of the stories, in particular Frederick
Prokosch's A Russian Idyll, a beau-
tifully written little "escape" story.
Mark Schorer's Boy In The Summer
Sun, a story of dying love (for those'
who like Schnitzler), and Meridel I'
Sueur's The Girl, about a typical
youngishschool teacher on vacation
who is propositioned by a husky,
kind hearted young fellow.
In the last category I personally
wouldput Elizabeth Madox Roberts'
The Haunted Palace, a pointless and
boring piece, Manuel Komroff's pot-
boiling kiddie story, The Whole,
World Is Outside, and a thing by
Jesse Stuart called Huey, The Engi-
neer, which might just as well have
been written in Swahili.
The main fault which I find with
this year's collection is that too many
of the stories read like The Ama-
