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 ed-
ucational institutions in the best mean-
ing of the term.
Alexander G. Ruthven.
A Statement
Of Principle.
WE, THE EDITORS of The Michigan
Daily, believe so thoroughly in the
principles expressed by President Ruthven in his
speech Friday, Feb. 25, in New York City, that we
have selected a part of his address to serve as a
guiding principle for those who are interested
in greater freedom for student thought. This
selection will appear in the Daily every day here-
after in this column immediately below the mast-
head.

companies continue to discriminate against Negro
workers, they will have to deal with the State
of New York, for a 1933 addition to the civil
rights law (Sec. 42) provides that:
"It shall be unlawful for any public utility com-
pany, as defined in the public service law, to re-
fuse to employ any person in any capacity in the
operation or maintenance of a public service on
account of the race, color or religion of such
person."
We wish success to the Harlem movement, from
which should spring some very encouraging re-
sults for our democracy. A large group of con-
sumers will' come to realize that their apparent
weakness in the shadow of a huge monopoly can,
with direction and organization, become real
strength.
But the most significant aspect of the move-
ment is that it will deal a well-deserved and long
over-due blow to the general practice of discrim-
ination against Negroes. As a result of this move-
ment, Negroes will realize that by combining with
other persons they can make their rights more
than mere fictions. The stereotyped phrase, "the
right to work," will mean more if it is applied
to men and women regardless of the color of their
skins.
Discrimination against Negroes, whether it
rides under the banner of the Ku Klux Klan or
"Americanism," must forever be eliminated from
the American scene. More power to movements
like that in Harlem, for they will help in the
fight.
Robert Perlman.
Trial And Error
The newest of the Soviet mass trials, which is
to open Wednesday in Moscow, will probably do
away with the last of the former Soviet leaders
who have been rounded up in the last year as
being anti-Stalin. As a domestic policy it is un-
derstandable. It will doubtlessly prevent trouble
if the war with the Fascist powers which the So-
viets believe to be imminent, actually arrives. But
to the Soviet Union's friends outside Russia it
makes further explanations necessary, and it will
tend to deter the Western democracies from any
wider cooperation with the Soviets. It places more
ammunition in the hands of those who would
discredit Soviet Russia.
Almost all ofthe men who had connections with
the Western world, and had a real conception of
what goes on outside the frontiers of Soviet Rus-
sia, have gone the way of the GPU. The new
leaders who fill their places are less conscious
of the effect of their actions on the outside world
and less interested. They have become convinced
that France and England are not going to take
any real steps to stop the Fascist powers. They
feel that the League of Nations is dead, that col-
lective security is a myth, and they are preparing
to "go it alone."
The current trials are remarkable because of
the lengths to which the Stalin regime has gone
in its accusations to discredit the accused in the
eyes of the Russian masses, and for the high
positions which those accused held before their
disgrace. To the charges already used in these
trials, sabotage, plotting and spying, are added
the charges against three of the defendants of
murdering men-including Maxim Gorky-who
were hitherto supposed to have died natural
deaths, and, perhaps the worst offense in Russian
eyes, of having plotted against Lenin. The ex-
alted names among the accused include at least
two world figures, Bukharin, who directed the
Chinese Communists, and Rykov, former Soviet
premier. For home consumption such a trial
may be an effective way of disposing of elements
unfriendly to the government. But outside Rus-
sia it will hardly win allies in a coming war, or
make enemy countries believe in the stability of
the Soviet regime and its power to resist attack.

Unwilling Austria
Germany's resentment over the turn which af-
fairs have taken in Austria is unmistakable. Only
a few days ago it was confidently asserted in
Berlin that Hitler's latest coup would soon be
followed by a political and economic, union be-

twegn Germany and Austria which Austria was
pictured as desiring ardently. But now Dr. Schus-
chnigg, the Austrian Chancellor who was forced
to yield to Nazi pressure in the reorganization of
his Cabinet, has aroused enthusiasm in Vienna by
declaring open opposition to the absorption of his
country in a Pan-German union. "Austria must
remain Austria," he told a wildly cheering Diet.
And an assembly which, according to our corre-
spondent, "cheered as if it would never cease,"
acclaimed his declaration that his government
had gone as far as it could go, but it was
"thus far and no further." To the proposal for
Anschluss with Germany comes the Austrian
reply that "the will to freedom of the Austrian
people stands like a strong wall."
Resentment in Berlin over this base ingratitude
on the part of a small neighbor is mingled with
cynicism in official quarters. "What does it mat-
ter?" is one comment heard in National Socialist
circles. "Schuschnigg's days are numbered, any-
how." That may prove to be the case. Small
Austria has little chance of holding out unaided
against whatever pressure Germany brings to
bear. But for the world at large the highly
important fact about the Schuschnigg statement,
and the Diet's response to it, is its clear proof
that Austria will be unwilling victim, and not the,
ready partner, in any German plan for a union
of these nations.
Six years ago, before Hitler and his Nazi party
came into power and made Germany what it is to-
day, the situation was quite different. At that time
a preponderance of sentiment in Austria clearly
favored union with Germany. Now sentiment
has swung so far in the opposite direction that
Dr. Schuschnigg takes great pains to argue, be-
fore the bar of world opinion, not only that Aus-
tria desires to stand alone but that she is a
strong enough position, economically, to remain
an independent nation. In this connection he

A young relative of mine dropped in on a week-
end absence from College. "Could I have your
photograph?" he asked.
I was very much touched, because this seemed
a break in the tradition of Swathmore indiffer-
ence. And so I said that it
might be possible to dig one
up, and that I would do my
best.
Will you autograph it?"
added the young collegian.
By this time my suspicions
were aroused.sNever before
had he manifested any in-
terest in my signature, save
in the matter of the monthly
allowance and overdrafts.
"What on earth do you want with my auto-
graph?" I inquired. "It is listed in collectors'
catalogues at two cents if accompanied by a long
personal letter. -I'd rather give you the money
than waste time in looking for a fountain pen."
"Oh," said the sophomore, "I don't care any-
thing about it personally. The only signatures
I'm keeping are one of Patrick Henry and another
of Joe Louis, but I thought that maybe I could
get the boys to hang it in the fraternity house.
"All we've got now is a woodcut of President
Garfield, which is unsigned, and a full length
view of Senator Arthur Vandenberg, of Michigan,
signed 'Yours in the bonds.'"
Speaking Of Vandenberg
"Leaving poor Mr. Garfield out of it," I said
coldly, "just why is that reactionary Republican
placed upon your walls? I'm speaking of Vanden-
berg."
In an awed and reverential tone my young
relative replied, "Because Brother Vandenberg is
a D. U. He is joined in the bonds with you and
with me."
"Speak for yourself," I answered in anger.
"Maybe he is a brother, but he is a reactionary
Republican just the same, and I don't want to
share any part of a wall with him. I don't mind
Garfield because he isn't around any more, and
as I remember he was the victim of a nasty acci-
dent. But as long as the Senator smirks down
from the living room of your lodge, include me
out of this. Get somebody else."
"That's the trouble," answered the walking
delegate of Delta Upsilon. "We have plenty of
alumni rather more famous than yourself, and I
don't mean to be particularly offensive, sir, but
they are men so wrapped up in public affairs that
they wouldn't have time to send any pictures let
alone autograph them." "And who are these
brothers of such surpassing renown?" I inquired.
Calling The Role
"Well, there's Brother Charlie Hughes, who is
the Chief Justice of the United States at the!
moment, and Edgar Bergen, the voice behind
Charlie McCarthy, and Robert Benchley, the
Hollywood actor.
"Now you know that Mr. Hughes and Mr. Ber-
gen and Mr. Benchley are much too busy to be
bothered about photographs. Don't be tempera-
mental. We're really doing you a favor if we
decide to hang you.
"Give me that picture taken at the age of 28,
which they still use as a cut with your newspaper
column. And I'll tell you what I'll try to arrange.
There's plenty of space on the wall and I'll do
my best to get you equal billing with Brother
Vandenberg."
Veneral Diseases
A subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Com-
mittee has approved a bill of Senator La Follette
looking to the expenditure of $271,000,000 by the
Federal Government during the next 13 years in
the fight on venereal disease. The money would
be used to assist the states in their campaigns
to reduce the ravages of this great taker of

human life.
The position of the Post-Dispatch in the
war on syphilis is known to our readers. Year in
and year out, we have urged frank discussion and
widespread dissemination of the facts. It is
therefore, no lack of sympathy with Senator La
Follette's commendable aim which leads us to
question the advisability of enacting his, bill atj
this time.
A paramount need of the country is the reduc-
tion of Federal expenditures, with a view to bal-
ancing the budget. The Government cannot go
on forever spending more than it receives. The
proposed expenditure of some $20,000,000 annual-
ly for the next 13 years would undoubtedly greatly
assist in the war on venereal disease; it would also
makethe balancing of the budget that much more
difficult.
Are the states throwing their own resources into
this fight as they should? It is doubtful if a. single
one is so doing. Let them all enact laws such as
Illinois now has for withholding marriage li-
censes from persons infected with venereal dis-
ease. Let them set up clinics and educate their
people. Let them provide treatment for indigent
sufferers. Government resources should not be
drawn upon until those of the states have been
found inadequate.

The Olivet College Echo, student newspaper of
Olivet College, here, is planning an editorial con-
ference of small Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana col-
lege paper staffs Friday, March 4. Purpose of the
meeting will be to discuss problems and future
possibilities of the college newspaper-what can
be done with the small college paper, why it must
be limited to local news when it is the only paper
70 per cent of the students see during the school
year, why it cannot have definite social aims, etc.

Georges Enesco Concert

The final concert in this year's TUESDAY, MARCH 2, 1938
Choral Union series, which was given VOL. XLVIL No. 107
last night, presented that very re- Student Teas: President and Mrs.
markable musical personality, Geor- Ruthven will be at home to students
ges Enesco. Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m.
Enesco's talents as a conductor,
composer and violinist- have been Students, College of Literature, Sci-
adequately praised; even so, one
hardly expects tose ar such concen- ence, and the Arts: A meeting will be
trated perfection in one branch as held on Thursday, March 3, at 4:151
was heard last night in a man of such p.m. in Room 1025 Angell Hall for

diverse talents.
Enesco is a stylist and with one
exception his program was admirably
suited to that style. That one ex-
ception was the Mozart-Andante,
Minuet and Rondo. The simple, bal-
anced, straightforward style of Mo-
zart cannot be loaded down with ru-
bato, and exaggerated nuance and
hope to preserve the much of the true
character. The Andante movement
suffered most in this respect. Mr.
Enesco's technique was beyond re-
proach throughout; in fact in this
work he seemed in complete control
of everything but his emotions.
The remainder of the program was
so constituted as to give no evidence
of this stylistic discrepency. Mr.
Enesco's performance of the "Foun-
tain or Arethusa" by Szymanowski
was unquestionably one high point-
of the program. If ever a tone could
accurately be described as luscious,
Enesco had that tone. In the way of1
technique, his trills and double stops:
was particularly fine. In two Ravel,
numbers which followed, the "Kad-
disch" and the better known "Tzi-
gane," the same intense tone pre-
vailed. The "Kaddisch" was full of
melancholia and introspection, two
qualitiesdwhich Mr. Enesco is more
than adept at portraying. In the
"Tzgane" we heard one of the most
authentic and most convincing por-
trayals of true gypsy abandon that
has ever been displayed.E
The last half of the program was
devoted to a very remarkable piece
of music, the Sonata in G major by
Lekeu. In all three movements there
is evidence of excellent workman-1
ship, and an adherence to a precon-
ceived plan which makes the work as1
a whole quite convincing. Artistically_
it shows both immaturity and genius.
The immaturity being apparent from
unnecessary extension of musical
ideas which had already been ade-
quately stated and from use of some-
what hackneyed musical devices.
Here, again the thoroughly intro-
spective character of the music was
very capably unfolded at the hands
of Mr. Enesco.<
In answer to the enthusiatic ap-
plause, Mr. Enesco played two en-
cores: the first, Variations on a theme
by Corelli by Kreisler and the second,
Minstrels, by Debussy.
Educ ition ;
Newspaper readers, down to the
last man, know that Fritz Crisler, for
everal years football coach at Prince-
ton, has accepted an offer to direct
the University of Michigan's grid-
iron affairs. And the Springfield,
(Mass.) Republican irreverently ven-
tures that, if Michigan had drafted
Princeton's president, Dr. Dodds, the
event would have commanded less
publicity.
Corroborative evidence may be of-.
fered in support of that somewhat
cynical observation. Simultaneously,l
two New England colleges have en-
livened their chilly calendars-Dart-
mouth with its carnival, Williams
with its midwinter reunion. Pictoral-
ly, Dartmouth ran away wth the
honors. The contagious joy of that
bonnie lassie from Tulsa, Okla., whom1
Dartmouth gallantly crowned Queen;
of the Snows, has smiled beaminglyt
from all the newspapers of the coun-
try, but how many persons in your
set, or yours, or yours, have seen or
heard or suspectd that Prseident
Conant. of Harvard was awarded the
degree of Doctor of Laws at Williams
and made a necessarily learned talk
to attentive thousands?
Those are the facts. Should we
report them, say, as a herald of glad
tidings or as the bearer of bad news?
No comment.

Harlem
Awakens .

INCOLN'S Emancipation Proclama-
tion and the 13th, 14th and 15th
Amendments to the Constitution gave Negroes
political equality-at least on paper. But since
1865 discrimination against Negroes in the polit-
ical, social and economic spheres of American
life has persisted. This problem is now being
dragged into the sunlight by a group of New
York citizens.
Only three Negroes are among the 25,000 em-
ployes of the New York Telephone Company. The
reason was made clear by Walter J. Williams,
Manhattan Traffic Manager for the company, in
his testimony on Dec. 15, 1937 before the Brownell
Commission of New York. Said Mr. Williams:
"It is correct that I would feel it necessary to
give a position to a white person rather than to
an equally fitted Negro. -In my judgment it is not
possible to give a high grade of telephone service
when white and Negro girls work together."
Awakening to the complete negation of democ-
racy implicit in that statement, an estimated
50,000 citizens, both white and Negro, in Harlem,
New York's Negro district, have formed an or-
ganization headed by a Negro clergyman to com-
bat racial discrimination practiced by the tele-
phone and certain other public utilities. Realiz-
ing that consumer cooperation promotes the
smooth functioning of the utilities, the group
proposes that its members take the following
steps:
1. Withhold payment of gas and electric bills
until all meters have been inspected. If 5,000
persons held back their payments, 12 additional
inspectors would have to be hired the first
month.
2. Institute a lightless night each Tuesday. If
5,000 did this, they would save $2,500 and the
company would lose that revenue.
3. Dial "Operator" instead of dialing the num-
ber on every call. This would not only compel
the telephone 2ompany to hire more operators,
but would be a concrete protest against the
company's policy toward Negroes.
4. Pay gas and electric bills en masse on a
given date and hour set by the coordinating com-
mittee of the organization. This united demon-
stration each month would throw out of gear the
usual even distribution of payments coming in
to the company, which is easier to handle, and
would also solidify the consumers' organization
on the very doorstep of the company.

The ancestors of these Negroes did University Lecture: Professor Eu-
