Great Brita'In's
Attitude ..
THE LONG SERIES of capitulations to
the power diplomacy of fascism on
the part of those two tired old imperialistic
democracies, England and France, continued in
expected fashion this week with the agreement
to hand over the question of withdrawal of Ital-
ian troops from Spain to the non-intervention
committee, Mussolini's dependable ally since
the conflict began. So the conquest of Spain,
temporarily threatened by the mildly adamant
attitude briefly displayed by the western powers,
is again given tacit sanction and a new life lease.
How much longer the anomalous position of
the democratic governments will be maintained
is still impossible to say. It appears that fascist
diplomatic gall is no more likely to stir them
from their sluggish indifference to their own
vital interests than fascist military barbarism.
tnthony Eden warns for the hundredth time that
Britain's patience is "well nigh exhausted." From
concrete representations on the part of Mr. Eden's
foreign office one would think he might more ac-
curately have described the condition of his
country's patience as well-night inexhaustible.
The generally accredited reason for the chron-
ically irresolute policy of the English government
toward the threat of fascist domination of the
Spanish peninsula is that favorite old bete noir
of post-war conservative statesmen, the Red
peril. The theoretical danger of the spread of a
doctrine inimical to private property is placed'on
a higher ground of practical consideration than
the actual menace, as pointed out by British
military experts, that a German or Italian dom-
ination of Spain would have on the Imperial line
of communications in the Mediterranean,
through which artery flows the blood of the
Empire.
The policy of France, under a People's Front
government, is even more difficult to fathom.!
The switch of premiers from the Socialist leader
Leon Blum to the Radical Socialist politician Ca-
mille Chautemps, whose last tenure of office was
terminated by the unsavory Stavisky episode,
apparently a deadening of the already none-too-
assertive French foreign office. The national
interests of France are threatened even more
deeply than those of England by the possibility
of a new Fascist state across the Pyrenees, and
by German and Italian naval and air bases in
the western Mediterranean, capable of severing
the Republic's communications with Morocco and
Algeria, probably more important to France than
those with India are to England.

THE CLOCK
with DISRAELI
ZOOKS! You think you see a monk?
THERE IS A LITTLE glow of satisfaction in
the Disraeli heart today. It was a fine coup,
that top hat, and as we gaze at it gleaming dully
on our desk we contemplate its possibilities. No
glass case for that beaver, no little drawer for it
to go into, only coming out on Saturday nights to
show the kiddies that what is high and mighty
one moment can go into milady's hip pocket the
next. No, sir, think what return we'll make on it,
offering it to the public at a rental of eighteen
shillings and a tuppence for one night, or a guinc%)
for the weekend. In a quarter we'd have enough
to fill it with champagne. Zooks!
** * *
T IS VERY KEEN of the Ford Motor Company
to include a comedian with their dandy Sun-
day Evening Hour. Sunday night when the Li-
brary closed we hurried over to the Union to catch
the concert because Lawrence Tibbett was sing-
ing. It was fine, but the crowd was fairly small
until W. J. Cameron cleared his throat to speak.
Chairs scraped up closer to the radio and ex-
pectant grins spread all over the place. Mr. Cam-
eron had a laugh from his listeners almost as
soon as he opened his mouth. He sure knows how
to burlesque the grand old science of economics
and he sure can toss a speculative wrench into
political theories. Mostly what was funny was
his question why legislators don't try laws out
before they inflict H. Ford with them. Why don't
they test them like H. Ford tests his self-starters
in the factory? Each one has to meet certain
specifications, the prime one being that it operate
efficiently. And W. J. points to history as a device,
by which legislators and idealists might possibly
judge the merits of their own pet laws.
We don't doubt W. J.s sincerity, nor do we
mean directly to suggest that he is rapidly be-
coming a serious competitor of Jack Benny, but
we do wish he would try to acquire more knowl-
edge of what he talks about. Perhaps, if he and
his boss were to stop trying to translate laws
into mechanics and terms of self-starters and
automatic inspectors of self-starters--whether
the inspectors be photoelectric cells or men-
they might get somewhere. After all, laws are
sort of human affairs.
When H. Ford makes a self-starter he is rea-
sonably sure that the man he sells his car to is
going to press the starter button with his hand
or his foot, depending upon where H. Ford in his
whimsy has put it. And H. Ford usually puts
it where he thinks it should conveniently be.
We imagine that H. Ford would be reasonably
surprised i'f any man should decide that H. is
wrong and that a starter button is best pushed
by the twenty-third eyelash from the right while
standing on the head. H. Ford would be even
peeved and hurt, and his reputation considerably
damaged also, if a large number of the owners of
his car utterly disdained H.'s placement of the
starter and, instead, decided that 'cranking the
car was the only way. H. Ford might be so
irked he would start a campaign of education
on the correct procedure-possibly with the as-
sistance of the River Rouge Rough Riders or
the Dearborn militia.
Yet.the drivers of the cars would certainly be
observing to the letter H. Ford's purpose in
creating his car. They would be making the
thing go-even though they choose the most in-
convenient method. But they aren't observing
H. Ford's decree that using the starter button
is the best way of getting under way. And they
could certainly make his car look bad -next to
other cars by staying out of the spirit of the
whole thing.
And yet, H. Ford has done just about that same
thing with F. D. Roosevelt and John L. Labor-
also William G. Labor as well. There is ,the
Wagner Act, which at River Rouge is observed to
the letter-as far as we know. But we fear some-
times that to H. Ford the spirit is always super-

natural; and he doesn't believe in ghosts. His
heart just isn't in it, that's all. When W. J.
Cameron tested that self-starter-as I am sure he
did in between huge mouthfuls of economics
snatched between drinks on Saturday night-his
photoelectric cell or whatever his tester was,
was pretty much infallible. At any rate, it knew
what was wanted, whether it was automatic
foot or a man. And W. J. got results. That re-
calcitrant starter that refused to conform to.
standard was junked. The starter accepted its
fate without quibbling and with extreme co-
operation.
In the Wagner Act's case, the tester-this time
H. Ford himself-wasn't infallible. Maybe he
didn't know--we're a charitable sort- what was
expected of him. He got the job half done and
since has demonstrated an pld axiom that a tech-
nique of legislation inevitably brings forth a tech-
nique of evasion. H. Ford without too much
doubt perhaps observes the letter of the law
but unlike his starter quibbles a great deal about
the spirit. It's an old story and as you say,
W. J., could have been avoided if legislators
took history seriously. But they probably feel
that since R. Ford doesn't give up and quit mak-
ing starters just because he finds one that
doesn't work. They see him go ahead with an-
other plan, full of hope. These poor fellows
keep maling laws, full of hope themselves, but
not necessarily that they'll make a better law
than anybody else, but that they may someday
find an honest inspector of the law who for some
reason foreign to modern morality believes in the
free exercise of individual rights, even to the

Iifecinr to Me
Heywood Broun
Grantland Rice, who used to be an old South-
ern boy himself, tells me that the lot of the
Negro in college football grows easier. He pointed
to the success this season of Cornell's great end,
Holland.
In previous years there were teams well above
the Mason and Dixon line which would complain
severely about the makeup of a rival eleven and
practically ask for a guest list
before they would go through
with a contract. And in
cases where the home team
refused to agree to have a
Negro star sit out the en-
gagement it was not un-
known for the visitors to
gang up on him right after
the kick-off and make sure
that he was injured.
Cornell played some of the best teams in the
East, and while Holland got his bumps, there is,
no evidence that he was called upon to face
any more severe treatment than goes in general
with the game. Of course, he is a big fellow and
can give as well as take.
Clint Frank, of Yale, mentioned Holland as
the best end he had seen all season, and it is
likely that his name will appear on several
All-Americas.
* m* * *
Nothing He Could Do About It
This may raise a point which bobbed up some
years ago in the semi-official selection of Walter
Camp, or it may have been Rice's selection.
I can't remember the name of the Negro who was
chosen. I'm pretty sure it was after the playing
days of Paul Robeson. At any rate, one of the
fellow members of the All-America was a boy
from an institution of learning in the deep
South. This nominee for stellar honors promptly
resigned on the round that he was unwilling to
be on a football team with a Negro.
To be sure, the embarrassed Nordic was in a
somewhat ineffectual position. Since the All-
America eleven is mythical and never meets
either socially or on the gridiron, the declining
halfback was in no position where he could really
do much about it. His name and the name of
the Negro player had been printed in the pages
of a great national weekly, and about all the
reluctant recruit could do was to fake a pass and
fall on the ball.
I am also interested to find out what Fordham
will do about the fact that three of the Rams
have been chosen on the All-New York eleven of
the Daily Worker. Must these lads from the
famous Catholic college put away the crown on
the ground that they are wholly out of sympathy
with the doctrines of Karl Marx?
Grows Sillier And Sillier
And again I wonder whether Commissioner
Landis has been informed that "Red" Rolfe, of
the Yankees, did an exclusive set of stories on
the world series for the Communist newspaper.
I asked the managing editor whether Rolfe had
been engaged because he was a party sympathizer
or wholly on the basis of the fact that he was
called "Red" Rolfe. He told me'that there was
nothing in either theory and that the third base-
man was selected simply on the ground that he
quoted the lowest price.
This column was originally intended to be an
argument for including Negro players in Big
League baseball. I brought up the point several
years ago at a dinner of the Baseball Writers'
Association, where it met with no enthusiastic
response. Nevertheless, that tacit ban grows
sillier and sillier. I see no reason why the Giants
and Yankees draw lines not drawn by Cornell
and most other colleges. As a matter of fact,
there have been Negroes in the Big League, but
they were introduced as "Indians" or "Cubans."
It would be good business to abolish the
color line without criticism. If a man can hit a j

longer home run or throw a faster curve I feely
certain that the fans will beat a pathway to the
turnstiles. Our national game certainly should
not be one professional sport which insists on re-
maining snooty.

A strong stand in defense of legitimate eco-
nomic and military interests, apart from all con-
siderations of the moral aspect of the war in
Spain, could have isolated the conflict at the
very outset. Now, with. 150,000 Italian troops,
hundreds of German and Italian airplanes, and
countless munitions of war of every description
pinning the fascist dictators to their adventure,
hope of disentangling them steadily wanes. And
yet, the rulers of the two democracies may still
be enlightened to the danger which the working
classes, with their instinctive distrust of authori-
tarianism, have long felt, and the Entente Cdr-

time appeared to have forced on it, the defense
of democracy and peace against the forces which
so powerfully menace both.
