The Pitt .
Panther .. .
S OMETHING is rotten in Pitts-
burgh.
Reverting to its time-worn Mlonism the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh recently brought about
tJ e resignation of the editor of the Pitt News,
who quit because of censorship.
Robert Saffron, student writer who got out of
step with the established tune, it seems, when
he flayed the late Andrew Mellon for bequeath-
ing his fortune to an educational trust, thus
avoiding income tax requirements.
"I don't think Rubens and Titians will be
greatly appreciated by coal miners who live
an animal existence on $3.00 a day," Saffron
wrote in his column, demonstrating that he
had not yet learned that at the University of
Pittsburgh one is much better off if he keeps his
tongue in his cheek.
Long on the black-list of the American As-
sociation of University Professors, Pitt has pur-
sued its stubborn path, complacently oblivious
to institutions of academic freedom, intellectual
honesty or personal liberty.
Omnipotent ringmaster of this cloistered cir-
cus is Chancellor John G. Bowman, highest
paid college executive in the country, who cracks
his whip for a paltry $31,500 annual stipend.
When Chancellor Bowman was brought to
Pitt in 1921, Der Fuehrer's academic suppression
was anticipated by 12 years. Liberalism on the
Pitt campus became a capital offense while non-
conforming professors faced a firing squad of
trustees as ruthless as a Russian army purge.
The quintet of years from 1930 to 1935 witnessed
a particularly bloodthirsty Bowman drive. Lib-
eral forces were gaining throughout the country
and Chancellor Bowman had to fight hard.
When the smoke cleared, however, he was still
king of the hill., Twenty-five faculty members
had been fired while fifty-nine resigned the
struggle voluntarily.
When the dismissal of the liberal leader Dr.
Ralph E. Turner in 1935 attracted sufficient pub-
licity to warrant.a state investigation there was
held out some hope for a reversal of red-baiting
activities, particularly when Governor Earle
threatened to withdraw the $1,200,000 annual
state subsidy, but little came of it and today

Pittsburgh financiers are busy attempting to
raise an amount sufficient to permit the Univer-
sity to snub state funds and manifest its destiny
as the country's leading polluter of the academic
stream.
We should think Columnist Saffron would be
glad to quit the Pitt campus and return to the
United States.

twice as high as among families with incomes
of more than $1,000.
Th mAmerican Medical Association took a not
very resolute stand at its last convention along
the something-ought-to-be-done-about-it line,
which, in view of that body's traditional con-
servatism, is encouraging, but it remains proble-
matical whether real action can be anticipated
from that quarter. In all probability, and as
Senator Wagner seems to believe, public health
must be handled as a problem of the government
and not as one of the oganized medical pro-
fession. At any rate, the Association's attitude
indicates that it will only be moved to activity
by the fear of its old bogey, governmental super-
vision, a bogey which the government itself has
long respecte'd.
In the meantime, there are some 45,000,000
Americans without proper medical care, who
have little interest in whether help comes from
Congress or the A.M.A., but for whom the
problem transcends the academic questions in-
volved in the attitude of either body.
UNDER
THE CLOCK
with DISRAELI
The following contribution is written by
Creighton Coleman, a former roommate of Dis-
raeli, now residing in Washington.
* * * *
ROOSEVELT certainly hit the nail on the head
in his Chicago speech, although some are
saying that he only did this to turn the attention
from Justice Black, or that he has been wantirg
emergency powers again for some time and this
was a good chance to get them. Still it seems
that he certainly did voice prevalent opinion.
The real question, though, is, just how much of
the leadership in any aggressive action against
Japan, and Italy should the U.S. take?
If we invoke the nine-power pact then we
would undoubtedly find ourselves right out in
front and carrying the burden of the movement;
if on the other hand we act "in support of the
League" we will be simply a part of one big
family. And it does look right now as if we
would act with the League, both from the recent
pronouncements from Hull and the State de-
partment and also from the fact that the
League received the text of the Chicago speech
(Roosevelt's) even before our State department
did, i. e., six hours before it was delivered in Chi-
cago.
Then, too, very incidental of course, if we do
act through the League, we will not lose as much
of the Japanese trade as we otherwise would,
United States being both the largest seller to
and biggest buyer from Japan.
This will undoubtedly hit a tremendous blow
at the cotton South though, but the way sug-
gested to take care of that being to buy the
necessary cotton to hold over until a better mar-
ket could be found. Even though it might cost
the treasury about $500,000,000 of the gold in the
Kentucky hills, it would be a mighty cheap war.
* * * *
Well at least three things have been accomp-
lished by the Black affair. (1.) "Senatorial cour-
tesy" as a policy for voting on the Supreme
Court appointees from the world's greatest club
was. placed on its last legs. (2.) Future Court
nominees will undergo the closest of the scrutiny
in the Senate and (3.) Roosevelt will be mighty
careful of his next few appointments.
Watch Dr. Frank, ex-Wisconsin educator, as a
Republican hope in 1940. He is really going to
town.
Watch Europe on this China-Japan affair; they
hold keys to the situation beyond most people's
imagination. They are about ready to admit
that the Orient is more important to them
than they had thought. The realization may re-
sult in peace or it may result in war.

News letters say that there will not be an
extra session, but the newspapers have it that
there will be. Take your pick, we still favor there
being one in the middle of November.

Have you forgotten Hoover? The New Deal
hasn't or else they are most forgetful, as they
have hired back, Merriam, Ogburn, W. C. Mit-
chel, and others, having them continue the same
studies started by Hoover when he was in office,
remember "Recent Economic Changes," "Social
Trends," etc.?
Roosevelt and Hoover had many of the same
ideas only their methods of carrying them out
were antithetical. Hoover wished the government
to lead, and help the individual in every way
possible, the individual having the liberty and
freedom to choose. Roosevelt wishes to have
the government choose what it thinks best and
force the individual to follow what the govern-
ment declares is good for them.
The President has talked about the budget be-
fore. But who knows, he might mean it this
time.

You undoubtedly noticed that the President
signed, the slated for a veto, Sugar Bill. And it
all goes to prove an old adage, "Blood is thicker
than water." Son Jimmy turned lobbiest for the
bill. Guess sugar doesn't all come from cane or,
sugar beets.

What a nebulous thing the law is. Down on
the Kansas Nebraska line one afternoon an old
Kansas justice and his son Jim were working
in the field. Right across the line in Nebraska
was another young fellow husking corn. It

IT SEEMS
TO ME
By Heywood Broun
Oberlin College has dedicated a memorial
to the first American co-eds. Just a century
ago four pioneer girls sat down in the same
classes with'the men folk to receive instruction.
I wonder whether any eye-witness wrote an ac-
count of the historic occasion. If not I recom-
mend the theme to some enterprising author
whose imagination might recreate the scene.
Still, there is a danger in that. No story writer
of any capacity whatsoever could fail to fetch up
with something which would be fodder for
Hollywood. Almost I can see in the neon light
some such title as "Angels Tread," and the whole
thing would be done in the spirit of moonlight
and honeysuckle. It would be prettified and
cute.
I doubt very much if that was the spirit of
the first co-eds. They must have felt strongly
some spirit of dedication and they may well
have had an inkling of the historical importance
of their expeditionary force.
* * .
They Were Not Urged
Certainly the original announcement in the
college catalogue did not constitute an invita-
tion to the prom. On the contrary, it was
coiched in forbidding language. "Young ladies
of good minds, unblemished morals, and respect-
able attainments, are received into this depart-
ment and placed under the superintendence
of a judicious lady whose duty it is to correct
their habits and mold the female character."
A course in lily gilding it would seem.
And the same announcement went on to stress
the fact that "Their rooms are entirely separate
from those of the other sex, and no calls or
visits in their respective apartments are at all
permitted."
However, I am under the impression that this
custom is still preserved in American co-educa-
tional colleges. The important and epoch-mak-
ing factor in the Oberlin experiment was the
fact that while the first co-eds were domiciled
alone they studied in the same classes with the
young gentlemen. Again there ought to be
some record of the first recitation by one of the
newcomers in these strange surroundings.
If she stammered a little in her answer there
was good reason for nervousness, because in a
sense, the whole feminist movement hung upon
her answer. Would she meekly mutter "unpre-
pared," or in some other way fluff the oppor-
tunity, or would she in a cool, clear voice indicate
that a woman is as good as a man any day in
the week as long as she behaves herself?
* * * *
Right On The Dot
It is my guess that the young lady in question
was perfect. I sem to see the stern old profesor
of Latin turn toward her suddenly and say, "And
now Miss Janet Rudd, will you please tell us into
how many parts all Gaul is divided?"
For a split second destiny stood still, and no
one could predict that Gertrude Ederle would
swim the English Channel and Dorothy Thomp-
son write a column.
Miss Rudd gulped once and then in a still,
small voice she answered, "Three, Professor."
The stars sang in their courses. In various
trundle beds throughout the land girl babies
cooed, assured that women would eventually
vote and develop a punishing forehand. Miss
Rudd in triumph looked about at her male
competitors as much as to say, "Tie that."
And so last week a bobbed-haired junior in a
tailored dress stepped forward to unveil the
monument on which her great-grandmother's
name is inscribed. And if I seem to jest in the
heavy-handed way which is traditional among
men, it is not in a spirit of mockery, for it seems
to me that the emancipation of women is the
very cornerstone of freedom.

If Michigan's first two games show anything,
it would seem that Michigan has now entered
a new era in her football history. Instead of
getting skunked, the team now just barely loses.
* * * *
But it is losing like a great team, and the
boys don't have to sneak through the depot
the way they had to after they came back
home last year.
Since the advent of "Hunks Anderson, each
lineman on the team looks like Horatius, and
the opponents are finding that going through
the Wolverine line is like going through Physics
45 without a lab manual.
* ** *
In fact, Michigan's only glaring weakness is an
inadequate pass defense, and this fault could
be easily fixed if the "M" backfield made a
closer study of the women on campus.
S* * *
Michigan women have an impenetrable
defense for stopping any kind of a pass that
is made at them.
* * * *
The Mosher-Jordan Judies can successfully
block every pass made with the lips by merely
asking for a cigarette at the psychological
moment.
