Frankly,
Mr. Lippmann. . .
IjNA RECENT COLUMN on "What
the Stock Markets Are Saying,"
Walter Lippmann thinks he hears the ticker tape
moan "business cannot proceed because it is ter-
rorized by the New Dealers."
This sounds strange to our ears. We find,
according to Harland H. Allen writing in The
Nation, that last month when the stock market
feared for future profits, the policy-making
boards of no fewer than 1,311 leading corpora-
tions voted the highest dividends since 1929.
Certainly Mr. Lippmann must be aware of
these facts. But only Mr. Lippmann could de-
duce from the declaration of these dividends
that business is "terrorized by the New Dealers."
Is it new business policy for "terrorized" bus-
inessmen to part with liquid assets?
Mr. Lippmann clarifies his position when he
warns the New Dealers that' they "will have to
give business the security under which it can
prosper" if they want a prosperous capitalism.
Perhaps Mr. Lippmann took advantage of recent
events in Wall Street to launch an attack on the
"collectivist tendencies of the New Deal." This
bears a not too. remote resemblance to Mr.
Hoover's theory that if capitalism is only allowed
to proceed without governmental interference,
there will come a day when the rest of the
nation will benefit by the initiative and wise
leadership of our business executives.
We hopefuls have only to overlook such trivial
occurrences as the 1929 crash, the subsequent de-
pression, stock exchange frauds and bad bank-
ing policy. We shouldn't feel pessimistic about
such trivialities. Mr. Lippmann wants us to
reserve our pessimism for New Deal interfer-
ence with our economic order.
Frankly, we would rather not become pessi-
mistic because men who believe in stock market
and banking regulations, the right of labor to
organize independently of employers and the
right of consumers to fair prices are guiding
the policies of our national economic life.
There are all kinds of notions of what security
implies.
If the New Dealers have failed to accomplish
all they set out to, they certainly are aware of

the right path. At least they show concern
about the social meanings of security and pros-
perity.
We'll Welcome
State Editors
A NOTABLE GATHERING of news-
paper editors and publishers is
held annually under the auspices of the Depart-
ment of Journalism. This group, officially known
as the University Press Club of Michigan, was
organized nineteen years ago for the purpose
of bringing the University and -the public press
into a close relationship of understanding and
mutual helpfulness. It was felt by the founders
of the club that a better press would attend
on any effort that made the resources of the
TĀ£niuckrinv mn1 ranrlil n n 1~i ahf n n-amnn nar

of these meetings, all of which are open to the
university public.
We are pleased to direct attention to this
year's convention, which will be held at the
Michigan Union on November 4, 5,. and 6. The
topics .to be discussed include "Efficient State
Government," "Foreign News," and "Free
Speech." These interests, discussed from the
points of view of the public and the press
should prove enlightening to any person inter-
ested in the world of affairs. The Daily, there-
fore, urges the campus to improve an excellent
opportunity to further its acquaintance with the
editorial mind of the state.
UNDER
TIHE CLOCK
with DISRAELI
That gentle Nimrod Bill Reed went hunting
this morning with Fred Janke. Stalking through
the veldt about Ann Arbor, Bill got the first
glimpse of game and potshot at it. But buck
fever got him and he didn't do a clean job.
Chasing down the wounded quarry he leaped
upon it, pinning it down. Janke thundered up
behind, shouting. He looked at Bill. "Hey, Reed,
what the hell are you doing with my hat."
Last night the Delta Gam phone rang-not
too unusual a thing when you come to think of it.
It was for Betty Young. A hearty greeting greeted
her. How about a date with me? With whom?
Oh, a friend of a good friend of a boy friend.
Well, gosh, I'm sorry but it doesn't quite seem
... you know. Oh, come on. Gosh, I'm sorry, but
I think I'm going to be busy that night. And
that closed the conversation and the phone was
allowed to ring again in the Delta Gam .house.
And a little while later it did ring again. It was
Tom Kleene asking for Betty Young. He wanted
to know if she had been asked for a blind date
on the phone a little while ago by someone who
had obviously disguised his voice. She modestly
said yes. Well, said Tom, you have just refused
a blind date with my uncle who is, as you
know, Joe Bursley.

LITTLE BOY BREW
I met an Elf man in the woods;
The wee-est little elf'
Sitting under a mushroom tall--
'Twas taller than himself.
"How do you do little elf," I said,
"And what do you do all day?"
"I dance and fwolic about," said he,
'N scuttle about and play."
"I s'prise the butterflies, 'n when
A katydid I see,
Katy didn't I say, an' he
Says, Katy did, to me."
"'N then I play with the baby chicks.
I call them, Chick, Chick, Chick.
'N what-do-ya think of that?" says he,
I said, "It makes me sick!"
"It gives me sharp and shooting pains
To listen to such drool."
So I lifted up my foot and squashed
The goddam little fool!
Our letter box overfloweth.
The Right Honorable Lord Beaconsfield:
Care of The Michigan Daily.
We should like to call your attention to an
incident that took place yesterday in one of
Angell Hall's classrooms. The professor was dis-
coursing, as is his wont, and in order to make
some point clearer to his hearers he embarked
on an exceedingly involved example. This pro-
fessor realized the humor of his remarks and
joined with the rest of the class in a hearty
laugh.
At that point a bored and husky member of
our University's eleven, impatient with the pro-

ceedings and anxious to terminate the session,
turned to the man next to him, who was laughing
unrestrainedly, and said:
"Don't laugh. You only encourage him."
-Veritas.

Dear Diz:
Frankly, what do you think of the SDOP?
You probably read in the New York Times
that a group of ministers daughters, who feel
they are not getting the breaks in print and. on
the stage, have organized the Society of the
Daughters of Preachers to protect their rights.
Viewing the whole affair objectively, our opin-
ion is that such a group has a place in our
society. Taking a hint from the left, who will
look out for this class if not themselves. You
certainly can't expect the STCOP (Society of
Third Cousins of Preachers) to fight for the
interests of the SDOP.
I have no axe to grind. I just want to bring
the question into the sunlight and have it
thrashed out. -R.F.D.
Nuts To You
Among the innumerable things which day
by day assist few or many persons in doing
their customary amount of viewing with alarm,
it would be unwise to overlook the growing tend-
ency of those who live in cities to turn their
backs upon such delicious indigenous drupaceous
familiars as the black walnut, the butternut and
the shellbark hickory nut. Those reliable wood-
land neighbors, well worthy to be cherished by
the squirrels, chipmunks and human beings, are

Ifeewtio Ae
America now has an opportunity to observe
the first Fascist putsch in this country. The
circumstances are so bizarre and farcical that the
incident in question will furnish food for para-
graphers rather than substance for any serious
viewing with alarm. But at base it really isn't
funny, although the immediate incident con-
cerns "a state of insurrec-
tion" at a race track. After
all, Hitler's first drive began
in a beer garden.
Adding to the humor or
tragedy of the situation is
the fact that the complete
usurpation of executive
power has occurred in Rhode
Island, famous as the ear-
liest cradle of liberty among
the American colonies. The events leading up to
Governor Quinn's battle cry of "Heil! Heil! My
storm troop gang's all here," are complicated
and will have to be telescoped. Mostly they af-
fect local politics, although just a dash of New
Deal controversy enters in.
* * *4 *
Local Citizenry WaS Content
I spent a. couple of days along the Pawtucket
front recently, but this is no trench warfare, and
there have been shifts in the forces since. The
Narragansett Race Track, so-called, because it
is situated in Pawtucket, is controlled by a fabu-
lous man called Walter E. O'Hara. He built his
track in a month or so, and before the year
was out it became the most successful in America.
Some Rhode Islanders were enthusiastic about
racing because the state's share of the mutuel
take helped to reduce local taxation. Others said
that the betting kept everybody broke. Still,
most of the betters were aliens from Connecticut
or Massachusetts or even far off New York, so
on the whole, the local citizenry was content.
Having launched a race track Walter E.
O'Hara spread himself and bought a newspaper
in Providence. He was a New Deal Democrat
and Governor Quinn a Gerry man. O'Hara's
side lost in the primaries and presently there
was trouble at the track. A series of accusations
was brought by the governor in an effort to
oust O'Hara and close the track. Among the
charges was the assertion that the place was
disorderly, since some of the race horse trainers
swore loudly in public.
Led To A Lively Editorial
The controversy led to one of the liveliest edi-
torials known in American journalism. O'Hara
called Governor Quinn a double blank liar and
got himself sued for criminal libel. The blanks
are mine.
Editor O'Hara filled them in. Eventually the
commotion came before the Supreme Court of
Rhode Island and the court decided that no
cause had been shown why O'Hara should be
ousted' or the license of the track revoked.
Thereupon preparations were made for the open-
ing of the fall meeting, but the Governor declared
that the race track was in a state of insurrection
and ordered the National Guard to occupy the
horse park and an area of more than a mile
around it. This included many private homes.
Imprisoned within the track are one hundred
rebel horses, a few stable boys and Walter O'Hara
who lives in a penthouse on the roof of his
grandstand. And at the moment of writing the
militia men stand with drawn bayonets to pro-
tect the Commonwealth of Rhode Island against
any threatened uprising of the colts and fillies.
"Let 'em eat oats," says Fhehrer Quinn. The
whole thing is cockeyed, but I insist it isn't
funny.

On The Level
By WRAG
As Austin O'Malley once said, "A politician
is like quicksilver: if you try to put your finger
on him, you find nothing under it."
However, in campus politics it is the job you
win, and not the oolitiican, that offers nothing.
* ,
But already some of the boys and girls are
fighting tooth and nail day and night for either
a free ticket to a class dance or a chance to
have their names misspelled in The vEnsian.
* * * *
And anyone can be a successful politician
if he doesn't mind flunking all his mid-
semesters.
Because winning a class election takes more
time than a five-hour course. If you don't be-
lieve it, try convincing just one sorority house
that your party is sure to win the coming
election.
* * * *
Then, if you do happen to stuff more ballots
and win, your job has only begun. The real
work comes in trying to outtalk eight of the
nine houses that were promised tha chairman-
ship of the class dance before the election.

FORUM
Thanks To You
To the Editor:
If your letter box has room for
trivia and two-cents-worths, I'd like
to contribute a pat on the back for
The Daily for its pat on the back for
the Association Book Group. I have
often felt in the past that the Daily
is editorially too engrossed with the
macrocosm to bother with many of
the worthwhile activities that the
campus spawns. Of course, such ac-
tivities frequently are conceived, flick-
er, and pass away without acquiring
any more claim to student interest
than as a vehicle for the career of
some ambitious collegian. But more
frequently they supply a segment of
background without which the pat-
tern of any broadly educational in-
stitution is incomplete. It should be
the active concern of The Daily to
make discriminating appraisals of all
campus activities and to lend its pre-
cious support to those which can have
a worthwhile function in the educa-
tional process.
I have mentioned the Association
Book Group specifically because I
think it is an excellent example of a
worthy activity. Its first meeting was
distinctly successful, and its second,
a week from next Tuesday, has all
the makings of a very profitable af-
ternoon. More power to the book
group, to the many more sincere and
valuable activities that thrive on the
campus, and to an alert and sympa-
thetic Daily!
-Interested Observer.
Suckers In Line
To the Editor:
I should like to make a few belated
comments upon the battle of Oct. 1.
I notice that the police, as usual,
covered themselves with glory. The
situation this time, however, was a
bit different in that they suffered
one casualty, which, I understand, is
causing some resentment in the
ranks. One cannot blame them for
this. After all, it does make some
difference whose groin is kicked. One
is nauseated by those maudlin, panty-
waists who object to the free use of
toy pistols loaded with blindness. It
was fine that the officers could get
some practice against some real crisis
-such as another pin-boy strike.
The students made their first and
biggest mistake by expecting a free
show. They should know better than
to expect anything free-or even rea-
sonably priced-in this town. Air,
alone, is still free but there is a rum-
or circulating that certain merchants
are losing sleep because of the fact
that students still breathe without
charge. The report seems a bit ex-
aggerated, however, that these busi-
ness men are contemplating means of
impounding the atmosphere and is-
suing it out through meters at so
much a lungful.
If, however, this should prove to be
true the students would soon become
accustomed to it and think no more
about it than they do of paying rent
for a full sized house while using only
one room, or of paying caviar prices
for streptococci. I know how they
have become inured, because we en-
counter great surprise when we offer
to launder a shirt for less than the
price of a new one. (This is not a
paid ad so ignoreit.)
But I digress.' We were talking
about that shameful theatre riot. I
understand much damage was done.
That is bad. The contention that the
management can make it back in a
few days by their charge over and
above prices charged in other towns
is beside the point. Prices must not
be compared with those of other
towns. What is the advantage of be-
ing in Ann Arbor if one cannot hook
the suckers?
It is to be sincerely hoped that
there will be no repetition of this

shameful affair-but if there is we{
will surely call out the reserves andI
put the students in their place. Keep
in place, boys! The line forms to
the right. Get out your pocket-books.
-Will Canter.
