By ROBERT PERLMAN
James Ramsay MacDonald came
nearer to being the "Benedict Arnold
of the British labor movement than
its Lincoln," in the opinion of Prof.
Harlow J. Heneman of the political
science department.
Born in poverty and barred by class
distinctions, this Scot was able to rise
to the position of Prime Minister of
England only by aligning himself
with trade unionism and the labor
movement. In order to maintain his
office, once he had attained it, he
was willing to desert the labor forces
that had put him there, and to com-
promise his earlier professed ideals,,
Professor Heneman said in an inter-s
view yesterday. .
" The tragedy of this pseudo-So-
cialist is that a man who might have
been a hero if he had stood by his
original principles was called a 'swine'
and a 'cur' in the House of Com-
mons by the Left, while the Right, to
which he had gone over, did not pro-
test.
MacDonald's actions in relation to
labor are parallel, Professor Hene-
man stated, to those of AFL leaders
and to those of the German Social-

showed that she was willing to co-
operate with other nations to main-
tain peace. In fairness to MacDon-
ald, Professor Heneman said, it
should be noted that neither time
did the Labor Party have a majority
in the House of Commons.a
When the labor leadership col-
lapsed under the financial panic of
1931, MacDonald resigned for the1
Labor Ministry but immediately be-
came prime minister of a "national"
or "coalition" government, Professor;
Heneman declared, that was actually
Tory.
The conservative British press at
this time hailed the Scotchman as a
hero who was making sacrifices.
Later, when his willingness to endure
practically any insult to maintain his
office became evident, he lost the re-!

Notoriously high rents in Ann Ar-
bor's approved rooming houses as-
sumed new meaning today ag a survey
by the Daily disclosed landlord's pro-
fits last year averaged 10 per cent and
in some cases skyrocketed to an 18
per cent return upon the capital in-
vestment. The average rate of profit
on single houses outside the Univer-
sity area is estimated by city real
estate experts to be between two and
three per cent.
These figures mean that students
could obtain rooms in the 22 houses
considered for slightly more than half
their present rents and still allow
rooming house proprietors a six per
cent return. Moreover such a return
would be from two to three tithes
that obtained upon property in any
other section'nf the city.
Figures Checked
The following resuhs were bared
by the Daily's investigation:. The total
revenue earned during eight months
by the 22 houses selected at random
for the test was $29,923.50; total ex-
penses for 12 months were estimated
at $13,200; the total value of these
properties according to corrected city
assessments is $166,688. On the basis
of these figures the annual return
is 10 per cent.
The figure for expenses alone, is
subject to variation. Income quota-
tions are those reported to the Uni-
versity by the rooming house proprie-
tors. The valuation of the property
is the corrected city assessment fig-
ure. (Assessments represent 60 per
cent of the value of the land and im-
provements according to the city
treasurer).
The figures for expenses, while only
estimates, have been checked by the
economics department and by ex-
perts in Ann Arbor real estate.
Income alone is calculated upon an
eight-months basis, all expenses are
for the full year. No account has
been taken of the sizable returns
from summer school students. Prop-
erty valuation also tends to be low.
The city's property valuations are
drawn up to average 60 per cent
throughout the city. Yet it is well
known that assessments upon the east
or university side of town are, in
many cases, higher, ranging up to 70
per cent. The use of these figures
makes the percentage return upon
the investment appear smaller.
Expenses Allowed
Expenses were allowed as follows:
Coal bills for average size houses, ac-
cording to leading coal companies,
are about a ton and a half per room.
Where houses are draughty or poorly
insulated as much as two tons may

the condition of rooming houses, two
tons were allowed. With seven as the
average number of rooms, coal bills
were calculated at about $120 per
year.
