It is conceivable that the clamor on Wall
Street is a result of motivation for personal profit
rather than of a patriotic desire to save the
nation from disaster. And as Flynn concludes,
it might be wise to warn our federal adminis-
trators, who are disturbed by the ruckus from
men in morning-dress clothes, that they would do
well to go slowly about the capital-gains tax
at least.
"It will not be easy to explain to poor old
George W. Public why his income derived from
his work is taxed while the income of his cor-
poration friends derived from their stock
gambling is not taxed."

SINCERITY of purpose, it seems, can-
not be taken as an indication of
success. On the eve of the senior class elections.
the one real party with a real platform has been
formed to break camp because support has not
been forthcoming from an apathetic student
body,
Campus politics have long been a subject of
joking and scorn. That all the ridicule aimed at
the institution in the past has been justified we
do not deny. But things could have been differ-
ent now. Here we had a sincere effort on the part
of the Washtenaw Swing Party to do something
constructive for the students. Who can deny
that Benny Goodman would have lent prestige
to the J-Hop? Who can deny that Duke Elling-
ton would have been a welcome addition to the
Swing-Out Production? And the Messrs. Good-
man and Ellington would probably lop off a few
hundred from their respective fees if they knew
that they were performing for the best truckers
in the country-for an electorate that had chosen
for its leaders people capable of Suzi-Q'ing either
to the left or right.
But the students, displaying their usual leth-
argy and lack of interest in matters that are
of primary importance to them, didn't care
enough to back the movement, causing the pre-
mature death of another noble cause.
We urge both of those students who were
planning to vote today to stay away from the
polls and show that we resent this apathetic
attitude on the part of the University's body
politic,
Tuure Tenander.

THE CLOCK

THE AMERICAN SCENE
Amateur Hour (1939)
In the control room at the studio, the tech-
nicians fidgeted with their dials, waved hand-
kerchiefs at the production men and punched
little red and black buttons. There were whis-
pered orders and hoarse directions muttered into
the field mike over on the White House lawn.
Engineers busily and silently tramped over the
lawn and into the diplomatic reception room
bearing coils and transmission instruments. Rugs
were swept aside from floors on which Litvinoff
had stood, where Lindbergh had fussed. Chairs
were pushed back and a microphone placed in the
center of the room. Floodlights poured onto the
glittering chrome-plated instrument which the
President's secretary wheeled in and left before
the mike. There was finally over all the busy
preparation, a hush. Signals were exchanged.
The White House was onthe air.
Over to New York goes the announcer's voice,
down to Florida, far beyond to the distant Keys
in the Gulf, on to the haciendas of lower Cali-
fornia, flung to the varicolored badlands of the
Dakotas, to a Sioux Indian reservation, intruding
on the revels in some Malibu "cottage," to the
very threshold of Dean Bates' home-but no far-
ther, mind you. He talks softly into the mike.
Someone has stepped into the next room. "We

are ready Mr. President." The President fingered
his two little sticks nervously, took his place
before the instruments in the reception room.
The announcer was concluding his introduction.
"And now," he was saying, "we bring to you this
evening the President of the United States who
will play for you a marimba solo of his own com-
position."
Our favorite floosey. Dame Rumor, was in
again today and she claims that forty-five mem-
bers of the Mah Jong squad-which drew a rec-
ord crowd for the State encounter, by the way-
are threatening to strike and picket the Intra-
mural Building. They claim that they are tired
of subsidizing the University.
-Mr. Disraeli.
Doctor Kirk
"The greatest living Missourian.' That was the
high tribute which Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler
once paid to Dr. John R. Kirk, president-emeri-
tus of the Northeast Missouri State Teachers'
College, who has died at Kirksville at the age of
86. The use of the superlative doubtless reflected
the educator's special interest in the work of a
fellow educator. Even so, it would be difficult to
overstate the value of Dr. Kirk's contribution to
education in his adopted state.
When he assumed the presidency of his alma
mater at the close of the last century, rural edu-
cation in Missouri was in a sorry state indeed.
Making its advancement one of his chief inter-
I ests, he caused the erection of a model country
school on the campus, and then continued to
work for similar improvements over the State

Heywood Broun
The hot news flash which I saw under a Lon-
don date line read, "Among the stamp fans in
Britain today must be numbered Princess Eliza-
beth, now in her twelfth year and in direct suc-
cession to the throne."1
There can be no great harm in that. A prin-
cess must have something to do in her spare time,
and after all, the grandfa-
ther of little Elizabeth was a
philatelist, and President
Roosevelt has an album.
They say that you learn a
lot about geography by put-
ting the various issues in
their places.
That I doubt. As a child
I used to get stamps on com-
mission, but since Dale Car-
negie was not yet functioning I influenced few
people and invariably ended up by buying in all
the stock myself.
Collecting of all kinds leaves me cold. Books
are all right except that if you have a lot you
can never find Sherlock Holmes when you want
him. But why should one edition be more de-
sirable than another? The words remain the
same.
Possibly I speak petulantly because, of seven
or eight books I wrote, only one went beyond
a first printing. And that one didn't get over
the goal line by much. The name of my big
five-thousand E copy smash hit was "The Boy
Grew Older," and if memory serves me right,
it was a lovely novel.
Broun Contemplates His Novel
This is not a sales talk. The book has been out
of print for twenty years, and you can't buy it
except maybe in a second-hand shop, where I
believe it is quoted at a dime bid and twenty-five
cents asked. I sometimes wonder what thez
reader buys one-half so precious as the book he
sells.
But, of course, I could be wrong. I haven'tI
read itasince I wrote it. There'shno sense in tak-
ing chances. While I was in the throes of com-
position I used to weep all over the manuscript.
Now, looking at the work from a wholly impar-
tial standpoint, I might be inclined to be over-
critical. "The Boy Grew Older" would probably
seem pretty sentimental to me, and as far as I can
recollect, it is devoid of class consciousness. Well,
there were a few cracks at a newspaper editor
who happened to be my boss at the time. I don't
know whether that counts. As a matter of fact,
they were not very hostile, and just to make sure
that my boss would realize that I was only kid-
ding I dedicated the book to him. That was
twenty years ago.
Memories That Bless
A newspaper friend of mine who happens to be
in the same racket tells me that he gets a great
thrill out of looking over his old columns. 1
"Believe it or not,' 'he told me, "I run across
certain things which just knock me for a loop.
I look at them and say to myself. 'Well, I was
certainly swell when I wrote that. How did it
happen?'"
No, when I read for the fun of it I try to find
something by Wodehouse or one of the adven-
tures of Sherlock Holmes. I haven't been able to
sleep well for a week on account of re-reading
"The Speckled Band." In the middle of the night'
I wake thinking that I have heard "a strange
metallic clang."
Somebody did a biography of Holmes, I believe,
but there is a rich field for another enterprising
author who wants to do "The Life of Dr. Wat-
son." After all, the team has come to be more
famous than Boswell and Johnson.
I've often wondered whether Dr. Watson was
much as a physician. His practice couldn't have
been so big, because he was always tearing off
to places with Sherlock Holmes. "The Adventure
of the Engineer's Thumb" is the only story in
which Watson goes into any detail as to his clin-

ical technique. But I insist he couldn't have been
much of a doctor or he would have cured Sher-
lock Holmes of saying, "Quick Watson, the
needle." It is true that in his later adventures the
great detective seems to have conquered the
habit. His drug addiction is never mentioned.
But the cure was not accomplished by Watson.,
The whole thing was done by suggestion-the
suggestion of the managing editor of Collier's
to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
This started out to be a column about stamps.
What happened to them? How on earth did we
get around to Sherlock Holmes? Let's just drop
the whole thing.
On The Level
By WRAG#
Rumors have it pretty definite that when the
campus groups head for the Stadium this Sat-
urday, they will find themselves= pestered by
salesmen who will be barking about the latest
abortion to hit the campus. It is a book that
will be labelled, "Who's Who And So What?"
The book supposedly contains the names and
razzings of some 200 of the campus big-shots. It
will sell for ten cents. This last fact will make the
B.M. and W.O.C. at least pay to see their names
in print.
Such a book came out last year and sold

To the Editor:
Some few Michigan students took
time off from their coca-colas and li-G
brary dates yesterday to visit the
first floor of the Romance Language
building where as dynamic a set of
posters as have ever been seen in
Ann Arbor are on exhibit.
Expressing a vitality which can be
the result of nothing but a sincere
and courageous belief in the Loyalist I
cause, the painters responsible for
these propaganda posters have with
their brushes been able to drive home
to the onlooker that theirs is a cause
and an art made powerful through
freedom. From the fascist side has,
eventuated no such collection-per-
haps for the reason that, as Thomas!
Mann has said, no true artistic ex-
pression is possible under a totalitar-

And Bears Weep . .

.

HEN STOCK MARKETS tumble, the
panic of the exchange hits the nation
and administrators in high places succumb to
fears of an approaching depression. It is a moot
question as to whether we have really pulled our-
selves by the pump-handle out of the last eco-
nomic disaster. Nevertheless, the distinct fall in
production in the last six months added to the
excitement over Wall Street has led to the pessi-
mistic proposition that we have sacrificed what
measure of recovery had been achieved and now
ride the punishing path to hitherto unprece-
dented depths of economic depression.
All of which sounds perfectly damnable and
in support of the thesis that the New Deal has
frightened private enterprise and that the tax'
on undistributed corporations' profits caused the
fall in production by discouraging the reinvest-
ment of capital in productive enterprise. The
bulls and bears on Wall Street lay the market
slump at the feet of the Security and Exchange
Commission and its restrictive rulings. They
point at the new requirements demanding high
margin and limiting the tradings of execu-
tives and take morbid delight in saying, "I told
you so."
The picture looks black. But John T. Flynn in
the New Republic raises some doubt as to whether
these "obvious" causes of the present economic
decline are the vital determinants. And he indi-
cates another basis for the wild clamor that has
arisen in Wall Street against the high margin
requirements, the limitations on the trading of
insiders (executives), the capital-gains tax and
the corporate-surplus tax.
"It must be remembered that practically all
of the Wall Street fortunes are made with three
implements-the opportunity for insiders to
trade in their own shares, the gain in capital
values and the ease with which the public that
pays the bills may be lured into the stock market
with low margin money.
"Few of these Wall Street promoters or bank-
ers or brokers get rich by creating wealth."
How are financial fortunes amassed? Flynn
tells us that they come f-rom the process of
capital gain, capital increment-and an un-
earned increment at that-captured largely
through market trades.
"Mr. X is the president of a large corporation.
He knows its innermost secrets. What is more
his intimates are also corporation executives.
They sit perhaps on one another's boards of di-
rectors., They know better than the man in the
street when good news is going to push its shares
and when bad news is going to press them down
in the market. Mr. X is therefore in an excellent
position to make a great deal of money trading
in the shares of his own corporation and in
those of his friends.
