And Here's
What We Think .. .
O0UT OF THE MUDDLE created by
Friday night's riot one preemi-
nent question faces the student body:
"How long are students going to be suckers?"
There may be no apparent relation bet-een
police action Friday and the obnoxious attitude
of Ann Arbor merchants, the nauseating tenacity
of landladies. But there is a deep relationship
that has as its basis a resolve to "keep the stu-
dents in their place." And the methods used
make it a place hard to live in.
Let us discuss cases in point.
Begin with the police. They are called in when
students become too tough in manifesting their
dislike of the townspeople. At these times they
do what the town expects of them-"put the
students in their place." In fairness to the police
It must be admitted they have no other course;
if they acted according to the dictates of their
own conscience their handling of students would
be normal and generally acceptable-if they act-
ed as they wished, we believe, they would no
longer be on the Ann Arbor police department.
They have treated students kindly many times.
So they must be looked upon as instruments.
Admittedly their course of action is often un-
wise. The use of tear gas was unjustifiable and
merely riled the student body further. Their
use of tear gas, if at all, should have been
preceded by a warning. There were several in-
juries, the most serious to a policeman. The
police are just as angry about that as students
would be if one of their number faced an opera-
Students should remember that they caused
upwards of $500 damage in the riot and that
only a few people are going to be held responsible
for this damage.
The police should handle students more in-
telligently; they do not show intelligence when
they begin jostling students. But they are
agents. So it is to their employers that we
must direct our action.
The Daily has printed stories proving unsan-
itary conditions in some Ann Arbor restaurants.
Those restaurant owners who serve food with
little regard for sanitation are out for money-
and at the price of student health, in rank
arrogance to those who are their livelihood.
The Common Council of Ann Arbor two nights
ago voted unanimously for an investigation of
these conditions. We are a little cynical. Will
the Council throw politics out the window, make
stringent regulations and enforce them?
Students are entitled to the assurance of sani-
tation. In the meantime we urge students to
demand clean silverware, to send improperly
cooked meat back to the kitchen.
a . .

A Daily reporter entered a local book store to
buy a book required for an English course. He
was charged four dollars. He found "Price:
$3.00" printed in the jacket. Upon complaint
he was told "it was a mistake" and was charged
three dollars. About 200 copies of the book had
already been sold for four dollars each, he was

merchant to give this assurance. We want to
be treated by merchants only as we would in
our home cities. We are scapegoats in Ann
* * * *
By the way, 75 cents is tops for cleaning and
pressing a suit in other cities. Do you like to
lay out more for the same thing just
because you live in Ann Arbor?
And our landladies. In addition to paying $5
a weekhfor andismal room, we are many times
given heat and lighting, sometimes even hot
water, begrudgingly.
Our escape lies in the dormitory movement.
Cooperate to the fullest extent with the Uni-
versity in its efforts to build dormitories.
These are some of the things that make us
resentful of the town of Ann Arbor. Friday
night's affair was merely a manifestation of
the town's attitude. We hope students will for-
get police and strike where the trouble breeds.
Any complaints made by students will be in-
vestigated fully by The Daily.
More Adequate
T HE UNIVERSITY catalogue of
classes, describing them, and giv-
ing the hours and names of those that teach
them has frequently been found inadequate by
the student body. Because of the need for brev-
ity, classes are usually described in a sketchy
manner and it is impossible to describe the
teacher and the methods that he employs. As a
result of these shortcomings, students often en-
roll in courses that they would not have taken
had they known more about them or the man
teaching them. On the other hand, students
are sometimes unable to find the subject they
want because the catalogue has been unable to
describe it satisfactorily, and courses that might
prove valuable to some are overlooked.
Campus gossip and the counsel of advisors
tend to supply this information that the cata-
logue does not offer, but a more reliable and effi-
.cient method has been adopted in some schools.
At Dartmouth, the student paper has taken up
this academic burden. Several times a week The
Dartmouth prints comments on classes, discuss-
ing the lecture topics, the reading and the
teaching technique. These are written by a
student familiar with the department about
which he is writing and they are printed with
the understanding that they are the comments
of one man:
Economics, sociology, history, philosophy and
English have been treated most frequently, and
the result has created discussion among stu-
dents and professors alike. Interest has been
aroused in the curriculum among the student
body, and courses are being chosen more intel-
ligently, because the student has more informa-
tion upon which to base his choice. In the
faculty there have been improvements, too. The
professor that was in a rut and teaching the
same material intthe same way each year has
been goaded into activity. At DePauw the
student paper went so far as to print the com-
plete text of one professor's hour lecture. Need-
less to remark, this tended to inspire better or-
ganization of lecture notes among the faculty.
Another use to which The Dartmouth puts its
classroom comments was the announcement to
the student body of forthcoming lectures in
various courses that might be of interest. For
example, during the past winter when interest
ran high on the labor situation, the paper told its
readers of lectures that would be given in the
near future in economics courses dealing with
labor. Students not enrolled were permitted to
visit the class. The same has been done with
classes in literature and music.
Because of the large classes here, It is ques-
tionable if this arrangement could be made
permitting students to visit classes. But the
amplification of the University catalogue via The
Daily, with the accompanying benefits to stu-
dents and faculty ought to be considered.


By Heywood Broun
THERE can be no question that Hugo Black
started behind the eight ball, but I think his
radio speech gained him enough clearance to
give him a fair shot.
The fact that he joined the Klan and retained
membership for four years constitutes a blemish
on his record. But in spite of popular miscon-
ception to the contrary, few Justices of the Su-
preme Court swing up to the High Bench as
immaculate as Little Eva on the way to Heaven.
It is a good rule in politics, and in life in gen-
eral, to judge a man from where he stands today
and not on the basis of what he did or thought
once a Socialist, and John L. Lewis was an
ten years ago. After all, Walter Lippmann was
ardent Republican.
Hugo Black might have been better advised
if he had spoken much earlier. I mean before
he took his vacation abroad. On the other hand,
it now seems to me that he was justified in
avoiding any statement to the press while he
was in Europe. It came more effectively upon
his home coming.
I also think he was wise in using the radio.
His hint that some of the papers might not
print what he said I can hardly support. The
press of America, with very few exceptions, is
against him, and American newspapers are not
always 100 per cent fair in their news treatment
of public figures to whom they are opposed. But
there are spots where a full text just has to be
* * *
The Ring of Sincerity
On the other hand, the radio was helpful to
Black, because his statement sounded a good
deal better than it read. This was no prose
masterpiece and there were inconsistencies. The
end was too abrupt. At least one listener was
waiting for at least a sentence or so of answer
to the almost obligatory question:-"But why
did you join the Klan if you are against intoler-
When read, the tribute to the Bill of Rights
may seem no more than traditional lip service,
but Black in speaking put it over. Unless the
gentleman is the greatest actor in the world
this dramatic reviewer gives it as his opinion
that this was an utterly sincere expression. It
rang true.
Naturally there will be much comment back
and forth abouth the statement, but I think
that Hugo Black has a right now to sit out the
rest of the discussion.
* . *
Beyond His Right
Moreover, I think it is preposterous to say that
President Roosevelt must make a statement.
Indeed, I think it would be highly improper for
him to do so, and it is utterly inconsistent for
"defenders of the Constitution, to urge any such
thing. I believe in adding additional justices
to the court, but I would certainly oppose any
suggestion that in certain cases a President of
the United States may call upon a duly ap-
pointed Justice to resign. That would be an
overextension of the executive power.
I do not think that Mr. Roosevelt should make
any comment of either censure or praise, unless
the notion is that he is to go all the way down
the line and also tell the general public what
he thinks of Butler and McReynolds.
The new man on the bench does not start
from scratch. He is under a handicap, but
judging from his past performances in the Sen-
ate I feel confident that in the days to come
he can make it up. Mr. Justice Black, be seated.

To the Editor:
It has been suggested that the picture pub-
lished in Tuesday's Iaily was one taken by a
photographer for Panorama, that the negative
was taken from the Panorama offices, a print
made and the print turned over to Prosecutor
Rapp and/or the Ann Arbor city police. It has
been further suggested that this negative was
taken and the subsequent print turned over to
Rapp and or the police by-
a. Clinton B. Conger, of Ann Arbor, and
b. Clayton Hepler, also of Ann Arbor.
It has been further suggested that due to the
activities of Conger and Hepler, Richard Eubank
faces a sentence, if found guilty of the charges
filed against him, of ten years in the peniten-
tiary for endeavoring to protect himself and
the girl with him from a brutal police attack on
two peaceful citizens. Would The Daily check
the authenticity of these three reports?
EDITOR'S NOTE: Editors of Panorama
have stated that the negative of the picture
published in yesterday's Daily was taken
from their offices without their knowledge or
consent by the above named persons, that a
print was made of it and given to Prosecutor
Albert Rapp. According to the best infor-
mation of The Daily, decision to arrest Rich-

received the print, however. It is true, ac-
