Who Opposes
This Bill, Anyay?.

, ,

that since there is a sizeable South-
ern bloc in the Senate opposed to the anti-lynch-
ing bill, that a majority of the constituents of
these senators, and thus a great portion of the
South, would also be opposed to the measure.
Despite this supposition, among the influential
newspapers in the deep south that support the
bill and condemn the attempt to sabotage it by
filibuster are: the New Orleans Tribune, the
Louisville Courier-Journal, the Richmond Times-
Dispatch, the Arkansas Gazette, the HeraldCour-
ier (Bristol, Tenn.), the Greensboro (N.C.) Daily
News, and the New Orleans Item.
While Louisiana's Senator Ellender was in the
midst of his six day filibuster, the Item declared
editorially: "We have reason to believe that a
majority of the Southern people favor federal
action against lynching. So many of them do
that a long filibuster would be a fight in a bad
cause ... "
At the same time that Senator MccKellar of
Tennessee opposed the measure, the Herald
Courier stated in an editorial: "Southern senators
now attacking it (the bill) and filibustering
against it do not reflect the sentiment of most
-f the Southern people."
In addition to these editorial comments the
American Institute of Public Opinion recently
showed that 57 per cent of the Southern voters
fav--led the anti-lynching bill.
"The anti-lynching bill is an attack on the
South," screams the Senate opposition. "It in-
sults Southern law enforcement officers," What
part of the South, and what class, does the oppo-
sition defend from "attack" and "insult?"
Dennis Flanagan
Is A Good Offense
The Best Defense?...
N EWS FROM the Capital indicates
that President Roosevelt contem-
plates seeking a large increase in the strength
of the army, complementing the augmentation
of the navy accomplished by the half billion
dlollar appropriation passed last week by the
House of Representatives.
If the gigantic increase in the fleet so readily
voted by the national legislature was reason for
alarm, the present project is trebly so. For if
it is difficult to conceive a war in which the
navy would be used for a defensive purpose, it
is next to impossible to envision the army in a
defensive role. The land forces of the country
could only be used defensively upon American
soil; that is, if the nation were invaded by a
hostile armed force.
Rep. Taylor, chairman of the House appropria-
tions committee, speaks of the necessity for the
United States' "getting ready to defend itself."
He informed the press that the President and
chairmen of five house committees concerned
with the natonal defense had discussed "what
other countries had been doing" in their con-
ference Tuesday. The conference was character-
ized, he said, by "genera: determination to brace
up on our preparedness."
Few will dispute the necessity for maintaining
a national defense of adequate strength in this
generation of international immorality and ag-
gTession, but before hastening into the greatest

Residents Protest
To the Editor:
As residents of Allen-Rumsey House, we wish
to take exception to a letter which appeared in
the "Daily" of January 25. That letter did not
express t. opinions of the majority of the
residents. Although minor unsatisfactory con-
ditions may exist in the dormitory, we can offer
no complaints against either the management or
the proctors. We should like to express our com-
plete confidence in Mrs. Niles' ability and judg-
ment as house director and to repudiate ma-
liciously untrue charges made by a malcontent
who chose to cover his craven anonymity with
the signature "Allen-Rumsey House."
EDITOR'S NOTE: The above communi-
cation was signed by 31 residents of the Al-
len-Rumsey Dormitories.
Mr. Hinckley Again
To the Editor:
Now that the hornets' nest has been stirred up,
I deem it necessary to correct a few false im-
pressions which have apparently been created.
Let it be understood, however, that I do not
retract any statement which I made, although I
deny several points which I was falsely accused
of making; far be it from me to start anything
that I can't at least attempt to finish.
mn the first place, I objected not to Mr. Freed-
mans criticism of "his (Ford's) defiance of the
NLRB or his Japanese subsidiaries," but his ver-
milion statements concerning the undesirabilty
of possessing the qualities of "rugged individual-
ism," which I still insist, despite the sarcastic
comment from the more radical of the "Progres-
sives," is constitutional
Secondly, the editor's note appended to my
letter in the January 21 issue of the Daily was
grossly unfair, as were the deletions accorded my
innocuous contribution to the Forum, inasmuch
as it implied that I had branded Mr. Freedman
a Communist (or communist); also it implied a
lack of care in my perusal of the original edi-
torial of January 19. Neither of these allegations
is based on fact, and as a matter of form, I wish
to express publicly my resentment.
It is difficult to take seriously those who dis-
parage by sarcasm and insinuation. I wrote my
original letter in the hope of presenting the con-
servative's side without indulging in personal.
ities; I believed I had made that clear when I
rebuked Mr. Freedman for neglecting to present
any form of constructive criticism. Evidently,
however, there are those that cannot enter into
debate without losing sight of the main issues
by the presentation of disconnected contradictory
facts. It is a fault of the amateur logician to
generalize on insufficient evidence-a single fact.
Naturally there are policies of big business
which are not strictly in accordance with the
sympathies of either conservative or progressive;
this I admit without hesitation. But in the
name of heaven why must it naturally follow
that these progressives must lay down laws and
irrevocable opinions based on single instances
which, as far as anyone lunows, may be excep-
tions to the general rule?
Just to prove that point. I acknowledge the
care with which Mr. George G. Mutnick read my
letter. He alone has been able to reason with his
brains, rather than with his emotions. Out of
four "progressives" who thought enough of the
matter to express themselves about it, he is the
only one who is willing to grant the opposition
at least a few points.
And if "Frank Merewether" would stick to his
point instead of attempting to make our "valiant
little band of true-blue Americans" appear ridic-
ulous by allegedly profound verbiage interspersed
with his own peculiar brand of sarcasm, he would
gain much more appreciation and attention than
he obviously has. I believe that it is just as well
that "Merewether" achieved anonymity by his
literary allusion, for it 'seems to me that his
arguments are amorphous. True, they are stag-
gering in their allegations and accusations, but
if one stops to consider and analyze them, they

are structures of words without logical founda-
tion. Incidentally, "Mr. Merewether," what is so
wrong with "true-blue Americanism?" Progress,
Frank, is achieved by construction, not destruc-
I compliment Mr. Richard Loeb, 40, on his
sarcasm; but what, oh what, is he talking about?
It is a peculiar commentary that out of four
persons who deigned to answer my letter, only
Mr. Mutnick did not resort to sarcasm to prove
my contentions ridiculous, irrelevant, convention-
alized dogma. I consider him a true progressive,
in the literal sense of the word.
To return to Mr. Freedman, I should like to
request that in the future his editorials be spe-
cific and aboveboard; subtle insinuations are
almost always ineffective, especially in a com-
munity where it may reasonably be assumed
that a certain amount of intelligence is centered.
I didn't want to start an argument, but so
long as the only ariswer I can get to my state-
ments-which, I repeat, were made in good faith,
and without attempting to cast aspersions on
Mr. Freedman's political beliefs-is sarcasm, just
so long will I stick to my guns. And no amount
of half-baked irony will cause me to run up the
white flag.
I sincerely hope that this has clarified and es-
tablished my political position-a position which
I'll be glad to defend in open debate or anything
else the progressives have to offer, after the
spectre of final examinations has come and gone.
So, for the time being, a merry J-Hop to all,
and to 1alla Food-night.

IiIeins Ic Mew
Heywood Broun
The working newspaper men who arouse my
envy most are the fellows who begin their dis-
patches with "En Route by Air to Timbuctoo."
I couldn't even write a column while flying.
Some little time ago I was in a big, substantial
plane eight thousand feet above Columbus, Ohio.
It is, in its own right, a
friendly city, but viewed from
that altitude it seemed all
spikes and spires. It looked
like a nasty place to land,
and the only word which
came into my mind was
But there at the other end
of the cabin was Paul Gallico
gaily thumpin away a little
masterpiece upon his portable. "You can have the
machine as soon as I get through," he called in a
spirit of good comradeship. Another friend had
just tossed me a marked copy of a magazine
to call my attention to a piece entitled "Flying
Is Still Dangerous." My friend did not seem to
have any personal faith in the conclusions of
the author. He just wanted to put me at ease.
But even with all this help I declined Gallico's
generous offer. Even though my contribution
had been of little worth, I didn't want to have it
wasted. My resolution was to wait until there
was earth under my feet and a reliable copy boy
standing by my side.
That Old Devil Temperament
None of this is reasonable. Neither tempera-
ment nor timidity becomes a newspaperman. I
have written from political conventions and been
very little bothered by the fact that the keynote
orator was viewing with alarm from over my left
shoulder. The city room of a, newspaper is not
quite as frenzied as motion picture stories would
have it, but there is still too much noise for a
columnist to hear a good paragraph drop. Once
I did a dispatch from a lower room of the citadel
of Verdun under a very mild bombardment. I
have even filed from those seats beside the prize
ring which are humorously supposed to be re-
served for the working press.
A running story is always tough because of the
visiting and highly partisan fireman who has his
left elbow on your typewriter. He keeps his right
hand free in order to give advise to his favorite.
"Downstairs! In the breadbasket!" he shouts as
he encourages the challenger. And as he shouts
he illustrates his meaning with pantomime, barely
grazing the chin of the hard-working reporter'
who is trying to think up a snappy lead.
"In the breadbasket! He doesn't like it down
there!" To which, on at least one occasion, the
outraged author exclaimed, "Who the hell does?"
and sneaked over a very good right hook on his
own account.
The Manly Art
It is encouraging to read that at the last bout
in the Garden the reporters themselves put on a
battle royal. This has encouraged me in my
yearning for retirement and a quiet spot in which
to do the typing. I can no longer make the
At the battle between Dempsey and Gibbons in
Shelby, Mont., the good-natured crowd pelted the
working press with beer bottles. When Firpo
knocked, or shoved, Dempsey out of the ring the
classic chassis of the champion landed in the
lap of Grantland Rice, but did not miss me by
And so I am swearing off "en route," "ring-
side" and play-by-play stories. When I write now
I want to have my feet upon the ground and
all the doors and windows shut.
