NIGHT EDITOR: HORACE W. GILMORE
of its leaders brought it into disrepute and rele-
gated its fiery crosses, white robes, kleagles, and
klonderos into what most Americans hoped was a
permanent obscurity. When Mr. Black was
nominated by President Roosevelt to fill the va-
cancy caused by Justice Van Devanter's retire-
ment, there was some talk of questioning his
fitness to sit on the Supreme Court until his
membership or non-membership in the Klan
could be ascertained. The nomination was rat-
ified in the closing days of the Congressional
session this summer and only when the syndi-
cated articles on Mr. Black appeared did the
real fury of the present issue break out.
Mr. Black has so far refused to comment in
any way whatsoever on the materials which have
appeared, though he is now returning to this
country from England and it will be difficult
for him to maintain silence very much longer.
For the liberal and progressive who saw hope in
President Roosevelt's court plan, the Black ap-
pointment seemed ideal in. placing a compara-
tively young, ardent New Dealer on the bench
to offset the opinions of older justices whose
opinions leaned too much to the right in their
support of the privileges of the "economic roy-
Now, however, the whole situation has
changed. If Mr. Black is a member of the Klan
his whole reputation as a liberal is endangered.
If he honestly believes in the principles of the
Klan, then his liberalism has been but a sham
and a cloak to cover desire for personal reward.
If, alternatively, he joined the Klan, as is often
suggested, only because no one could hope for
election in Alabama in 1926 without the friend'
ship of the Klan, then he is made out to be but
a political opportunist of the type that could
hardly be trusted to follow out the .wishes of a
"people's mandate" to interpret liberally the
powers of Congress under the Constitution to
regulate American life. Whether this opportun-
ism will change Mr. Black's liberal outlook of
the past decade,as revealed by the new justice's
Senate record, remains to be seen.
The whole problem is a most complex one
which opens up an almost unlimited vista of
possibilities. Not the least interesting matter of
speculation is the course of action which the
President, who has so far remained silent, will
take if and when Mr. Black speaks out.
SECOND GRADERS UNITE: OR THE LIB-
ERTY LEAGUE FOREVER.
In Flint, city of the great relaxation, they're
at it again. This time the UAW is sympathizing
with a group of ousted and maligned school
teachers who were bounced for affiliation with
the American Federation of Teachers. There is
talk of sympathy strikes and sit-downs among
the school children. Union members are urged
to keep their children out of school until things
are settled. We are sitting on the proverbial edge
of our chairs waiting for the school board to or-
ganize the class monitors into vigilantes who will
swarm about Public School No. 14 with sling
shots and bent pins, making the way clear for
loyal, 100% American kiddies to their inalien-
able, irrepressible right to go to school. And
after it is all over-when the closed shop and
collective bargaining have been won-we can
envision Miss Rosie Mallarkey of Grade 4B de-.
manding of her class why they had left their
Union cards at home. Or, Miss Maria McBattle-
axe of the snooty seventh conducting a hearing
during recess with her class steward, concerning
her rights as operator to keep the first two rows
after school for skinning the cat while she was
out of the room. Gosh, and when the little
chap with the horn-rimmed glasses (class mon-
itor and stool pigeon) raises his hand with the
answer that no one else could get, will there
be cries of "Fink" or "Rat?" And then will he
bare his shiny Junior Liberty League button to
them all with snarls of "Red" or "Bolshevik"
or some other cute little phrase children some-
how do pick up?

IT TOOK Dave Underdown to classify the col-
lege-and what with all that those sour pusses
in Waterman Gym had done to him-when that
suave interlocutor of the Gargoyle's "man-in-
the-street" program nabbed him in front of the
Parrot. "What," asked the smooth Jim Boozer,
"have you learned in college? Has it been worth-
while?" Right back at him came Dave, "Ain't
learned much, but, boy it's, certainly been worth-

Then that smoothie Boozer asked a nice little
freshman girl where she was from and the
winsome lass replied sweetly enough that she
was from Ann Arbor. Then smoothly Jim coun-
tered, "And how did you get here?" Modestly,
we are sure, the little one answered him, "Gee,
do I have to tell you that too?"

HE TACTICS of the fascist pow-
ers are being brought into sharp
elief these days by the type of warfare that
ascist nations are waging in China and in Spain.
Motion pictures coming from those centers of
onflict show the expressions of terror on the
aces of women and children as they watch
Berman and Japanese planes hover overhead
eady to drop bombs from which there is no
scape. The inhuman murder of .thousands of
ivilians continues. The fascist governments
lave abandoned even the few "rules of war" in-
ended to protect non-combatants and hospitals.
Progressives and believers in democracy are
riven by such conditions to work for the defeat
f fascism at home and abroad. They see the
conomic and political consequences of fascism
s foretold by the situation in Germany, Italy
nd Japan. They are aware of the tactics util-
ed by these countries to enlarge their spheres.
"But what can we doabout it?" ask new and
Id students at the University of Michigan.
A great deal.
We must educate ourselves and the entire
unpus in the causes and forces that lie behind
%scism. We must be ever vigilant against any
ttempt at deprivation of our political rights.
Te must teach ourselves to discern the manner
i which fascistic groups manifest their true
esires. We must teach ourselves to face other
sues, akin to fascism, which we will have to
,ce when we leave Michigan.
Immediately, we can join with other like-
inded students in existing campus organiza-
>ns to demonstrate our resistance to every
ove toward war, toward curtailment of our
vil liberties, toward the economic strangula-
n that fascism brings to the masses of people.
Tonight, for instance, we have an opportunity
hear the truth of what is being done to
read the tyrannical grasp of fascism in a
nmocratic nation. Steve Daduk, a young Amer-
m who has returned momentarily from fight-
g fascism in Spain, will speak in the Union
llroom at a meeting conducted by the Mich-
an Progressive Club. Let us prove to ourselvesj
d to others that we are interested in this vital
By WILLIAM J. LICHTENWANGER
To say that the development of a love for
and a taste in fine music is an essential fabtor
in the cultural growth which a college education
is supposed to promote, is merely the trite repe-
tition of an axiom. To aid this development
in its students the University sponsors, through
its School of Music, a variety of concerts and re-
citals of all sorts (to be described later) in addi-
tion to the ordinary academic activities intended
for those with professional ambitions.
But may we point out that such a development
does not come about by the student's merely
exposing himself to the music thus provided,
any more than the love of football comes from
idle gazing at the antics of a lot of men on a.
gridiron. The football fan derives his intense
enjoyment of the game not as a mere spectator,
but as an imaginary participant in all that oc-
curs on the field. To so project himself imagina-
tively into the game he must know something of
the rules and regulations, undrstand the com-
mon principles of gridiron strategy, have his
own idea about what to do when it's third down
and five to go on your own forty yard line.
His is not such a thorough and detailed knowl-
edge as that of the actual players, probably, but
still it must be enough so that he understands
a good part of what he sees.
The enjoyment of good music, likewise, re-
quires more than mere attendance at a concert.
The capacity for an emotional response to a
musical stimulus is, we believe, inherent in every
human being. But, as in every other activity,
that native capacity needs to be cultivated and
augmented by the development of an intelligent
familiarity with music, a knowledge of its status
and scope as a form of artistic expression, and
at least some understanding of its technique.
That is asking no more than football asks of its
intelligent fans, and is merely re-expressing the
old adage that "you get out of anything just
what you put into it." Lawrence Gilman, veteran
critic of the New York Herald-Tribune, has said
that musical criticism (i.e., musical enjoyment
intellectually distilled) depends on "the relation
of two variables"; which, being translated, means
that the listener is just as important in the re-
creation of a piece of music as is the performer.
And the listener who expects only an idle, sensu-
ous pleasure from hearing music played, who
turns up his nose at such terms as "art" and
"aesthetics" as being "highbrow," is but robbing
himself of illimitable enjoyment of a far deeper,
permanently enriching kind, as well as betraying
either an empty head or an inferiority complex.
How to develop this quality, which usually goes
by the outmoded title of "musical appreciation"?
Certainly by a formal study of musical subjects
if such a thing is possible. But at any rate, by
reading books about music and musicians, by
following music's own march of time in news-
paprrs and magazines, by studying actual music
itself, as you would read, in book form, a play
which was really intended for stage presentation.
Then by applying this fund of extra-musical
knowledge whenever music is heard-by listen-
ing "with the eyes" as well as with the ears at
concerts, to the radio, records, or informal per-
formances. By thinking about music as much
as possible, giving it a chance to grow and
ripen in the warmth of one's personality; a phi-
losophy of music and of aesthetics is a part of
every mature philosophy of life.
But, best of all, a love for and a knowledge of
music is stimulated and developed by personal
participation in some form of actual musical
expression-even if it is no more than singing

Rushing is here again and all the backslapping
is a lot higher up than it will be later on.
It has to be because each fraternity and soror-
ity has to impress at least 15 freshmen enough
to get them to pay hundreds of dollars to learn
a new way to shake hands.
And because of this, everything is un-
natural.. The food is good, rooms are clean,
cigarettes flow freely, everyone smiles, and
the freshie women haven't begun to realize
their own importance yet.
But soon the women will find that there is a
4 to 1 ratio of men on the campus, and they'll
start accepting four dates a day.
This would be all right, but the good looking
girls will be going steady in a couple of weeks;
and the ,others will fall into the category of

tain American newspapers have
n carrying a series of articles containing what
ny consider proof of membership in the white-
ed Ku Klux Klan on the part of the newest
mber of the United States Supreme Court,
Justice Hugo L. Black. These articles, con-
aing photostatic documents of seeming au-
nticity, suggest that Mr. Black joined the

Democratic nomination for United States
iator from Alabama, and, having been suc-
sful in obtaining that nomination, came back
