Made Easy. .
RE YOU TROUBLED by the theme
'bugaboo?' Are you having difficulty
with your term papers, themes, or any other
writing problem? If so, why not consult us? Our
work is specializing in the writing of term papers,
themes, theses, etc.
"We write on any subject. All we need to
know is the name of the course, the subject of the
theme, the desired grade, and a tentative reading
list, if you have one. We can make delivery
within a week or less but prefer at least two
weeks' time. Don't worry any longer about your
writing projects; write us immediately.
"Average assignments do not exceed five or
ten dollars, but new and unusual subjects may
ost from fifteen to twenty dollars or more. All
work is sent C.O.D. Write us your needs and get
R --O , Michigan."
At last the true spirit *f the liberal education
has pervaded this campus! Academic freedom of
a new sort is here! No longer do you have to shy
away from courses that require a thesis or an
occasional paper, no longer will you be forced to
spend an otherwise perfect, Friday or Saturday
evening at the typewriter, when you could be hav-
ing just loads of fun at the League or Union-
o0Frank Scott-Fitzgerald, O flaming youth, O
nad. glad twenties, we have not forgotten your
credo, we have not deserted your ranks!
When we found this form letter at our fra-
ternity house and discovered that other houses
had also been extended the very same privilege
we were not only given over to the spontaneous
overflow of panegyric recorded above, but it set
us to thinking, too. There are other "bugaboos"
besides the theme "bugaboo' mentioned in our
letter. How about the outside reading "ogre?"
How often we've longed for a set of concise notes
that would save us from having to plow through
a lot of dull books. And there's the lecture
motes 'troll." Why should he exist if we could get
someone to sit on one of those hard seats for us
(someone that would probably take better notes
than we should, anyway)?
But aren't these all half-way measures? We
see no reason for doing a thing like this in one
3ourse when the scheme is applicable to what.
might be called the whole academic nuisance, not
just the theme "bugaboo," the outside reading
notes "ogre" or the lecture notes "troll." We're
going to send a letter, just as soon as we can
get someone to write it for us, to bring this genius
from R ......O......right here to Ann Arbor.
We must hurry though for we want him to sit
for our identification picture and register for us
in the courses that he'll be attending in our be-
half next semester. And "we" are going to take
economics and a lot of courses with theses, too!
China and expropriating her resources goodbye.
It has been indicated and prove that a plan
formulated by the United States and Britain more
than a year ago for a blockade of Japan by the
aforementioned powers' combined navies could
soon force Japan's attention home, away from her
neighbor's territories. In fact, the proposed boy-
cott would in a very short time bring the Japanese
to the point where they would have to con-
duct a defensive war, rather than an offensive
war on a weaker nation. For, Japan can not
support herself with her own agricultural and
mineral resources. She has to import. An em-
bargo, rigidly enforced, would soon starve her out.
Japan knows this-arid this must be what she
fears in the United States Navy's most recent
move. Certainly three more American cruisers in
the Far East wouldn't phase her emperor or army.
She has shown by her actions (seeming to believe
that actions speak louder than words) that she
does not fear the ships of any one nation. She
has bombed the boats of several powers and in
doing so has shown little partiality-she would
just as soon bomb an American ship as a British
or a Russian man-of-war.
Japan has shown that she does not waste much
tiie. The impetuous kingdom has not even
taken time out to declare war on China though
her army and navy have ravaged the Chinese
since early last summer. Therefore, it is going
to be interesting to see just what action Japan
will take on this American-British move which so
concerns her. Certainly, whatever her action is,
it will not be delicate. Japan has proved beyond
a doubt that she does not move in that manner.
Indeed, in regard to this threat of the western
nations, which is probably the easiest and sanest
way to bring Japan about with the least trouble
and least loss of life, and the possible deletion of
what appears to be a necessary war, Japan may
suicidally try to scare the powers away. Another
"Panay Incident" would be too tame here. Maybe
the Nippoese Navy will bomb the ne Singapore
docks and claim that the British used coolie

A Willirg Corerspondent
To the Editor:
A correspondent in Sunday's Daily, discussing
the desirability of a campus literary publication,
says the students "don't want anything of the
snobbish Contemporary sort." This statement
seems to me to be an unjustified slight on a
group of students who gave a great deal of time
and sincere effort to the attempt to make a lit-
erary magazine a permanent fixture on our
It was unfortunately true that Contemporary
contained a disproportionate amount of material
by English majors and that much of this was by
graduate students. But this was through no
snobbishness of the editors-they emphasized
editorially that Contemporary welcomed con-
tributions by all students; they often published
articles that did not represent their own points
of view; they printed replies to controversial ar-
ticles; they were, if anything, at times a little too
lenient in accepting material of rather mediocre
quality in order to avoid the appearance of
being the organ of a clique of regular contribu-
tors. But Contemporary was never supported as
it should have been, by either contributors or
subscribers. It is difficult to see how any new'
literary magazine can be more successful without
adopting the popular magazine standard which
Old Subscriber also deplores.
One thing that should be investigated-and
about which I am uninformed-is whether Con-
temporary's subscriptions could have been in-
creased through more thorough salesmanship by
the circulation department and by more Daily
publicity. It is my impression that it has re-
ceived much fewer articles in the Daily than other
Old Subscriber seems to think that a literary
magazine should be a medium for controversy. I
agree that it should be one of its aspects, to the
extent that a quarterly can fill that function,
but it seems to me that the columns of a daily
paper form a much more flexible medium for
this type of material, since one does not have
to wait months to read a rejoinder. I doubt if the
mere shifting around of "The Forum" on the edi-
torial page has in any way affected the number
of contributions; just why the student urge to
burst into print has such marked variations
is a mystery, but, whatever the reason, this year
has been a rather dead one for letter-writing.
-Another Old Subscriber.
To the Editor:
For some time there have been suggestions
about campus that the Daily ought to issue a lit-
erary supplement, and we, the undersigned Mich-
igan student writers, offer our support and con-
tributions to such a publication. Our names
should be regarded as representative, rather than
For a variety of reasons, the writer has been

should be organic, has our complete support. In

We believe that the student body will enjoy a
literary section: it will be valuable to both its
readers and its contributors.

opinions on this subject and pledge our help

Jife einrlo iVe
Some of my liberal friends-and I am cultivat-
ing a pair for scientific purposes-assert that
American radicals are demanding a special im-
munity. The complaint runs that no progressive
can criticize even a minor point in any left-wing
p r o g r a m without being
smeared as a "Red baiter."
If that were true I think it
would be unfortunate and
wholly unfair. But I don't
think it is true. I am not
going to assert that every
radical leader in this country
welcomes criticism. But, for
that matter, who does? Col-
onel Roosevelt once said, and
with facetious intent, "Mr. Simeon Strunsky
writes so well and thinks so clearly that I never
can understand why he is not on my side."
It may be set down almost axiomatically that
the statement "I welcome criticism" is -always
uttered through clenched teeth by all persons of
whatever political position. Even Voltaire in his
famous free speech phrase did not go beyond
urging that there should be a toleration of dis-
C;etting Down To Cases
At any rate, it seems to me that radicals in this
country are not saying, "A murrain on all who
differ from us by a hair's breadth." Or if any
radical has ever said that I am not the particular
radical. But it does seem to me (and the
last municipal election in New York Was a labora-
tory test) that it is no argument at all to say,
"This cause must ipso facto be wrong because
'the Reds' suppot it."
Judge Jeremiah Mahoney undertook to cam-
paign against Mayor La Guardia on the broad
general theory that it was not necessary for him
to discuss either the personality or the policies
of his opponent. He thought it would be suffi-
cient to assert that if labor groups and radicals
were in favor of La Guardia the Republican and
A.L.P. candidate must be wrong. The voters of
the city decided against Mahoney.
Some moderately rock-ribbed conservatives
cast ballot for Fiorello, saying in effect, "I don'tt
mind going along with the radicals or having
ahem go along with me, because this time they
happen to be right."
O Its Own Merits
A number of people have opposed the drive of.
the CIO for industrial unionism on the ground
that if the Communists favor this particular form
of organization all non-Marxists should be
against it. Of course, that's silly. The issue of1
industrial unionism was current in America long 1
before the word "Communist" was current. t
Indeed, I am asserting that each political andI
economic issue ought to be debated on its meritsY
and that no cause can be thrown out the window
merely because the debater happens to disliket
some of the people who support it. I am thinking1
of Benjamin Stolberg's apparent contention1
that it is impossible to dislike Homer Martin,1
of the Automobile Workers Union, unless that<
dislike stems from a party "line." I know a num-i
ber of people who find the task of disliking Homert
Martin at least two and one-half times as easy as<
falling off a log.
I ought to be candid enough to admit past
sins. Once I wrote a column in which I saidt
that I lived by a simple rule in regard to public
controversies. I asserted that I saved a lot of
home work and factual research by merely wait-t
ing until Bishop Manning declared himself and1
then taking the opposite side.
But I was only kidding. If we live long enough
I will eventually find the good Bishop on the right1
side of some question just through accident andl
the pressure of the law of averages.
Probably there is no country whose
international musical reputation rests
more largely upon the shoulders ofl
one man than does that of Finland.
Since the beginning of the century
when Jean Sibelius began to winj
world recognition with his intensely
nationalistic tone poems, as En Saga,
Karelia, and Finlandia, the Finnish
people have possessed a musical in-
dividuality and independence which
did not become political until 1917.
One of the remarkable things about
Sibelius has been the many-sidedness
of his musical personality. In his
song and symphonic poems, depicting
the primitive ruggedness of his land
and its people, or retelling some tale
from the Kalevala or the Kanteletar,E
the Finnish epic and lyric poems, the
composer has, both in spirit and ex-.
ternally, displayed his patriotic fire
without becoming banal or vainglor-
ious. In the symphonies, on the oth-
er hand, these broader national char-
acteristics are submerged in a pro-;
foundly personal mode of conception
and expression, one which is neither
violently modern nor studiedly ar-
chaic, and which is thoroughly
unique in the field of symphonic
