American Fascism
And Civil Liberty*..
. rT HE GROWING consciousness of the
threat of American fascist move-
ments has caused a dangerous line of thought
to appear in the minds of many liberals. Those
of us who hate and fear fascism are subject to
attacks of an uncritical and emotional form of
thinking which, if not checked, may serve to
speed us toour destruction.
The idea that fascism can be stopped by revo-
cation of civil liberties for fascist groups is a
badly mistaken theory. Once civil rights are
denied Fritz Kuhn or Father Coughlin, the pre-
cedent will be established 'for denying civil rights
to labor. Ths will come about in the following
way: a great hue and cry will be set up against
"alien isms," in the manner of the Dies Commit-
tee; restrictive legislation will be passed under
the popular clamor, directed in the first instance
against Nazi and Fascist groups and against
the Communist Party. Since fascist organiza-
tions are very hard to identify in many cases,
the chief effect of the laws will be to ban the
Communist Party. Next a drive will be conducted,
again on the lines of the Dies Committee, against
"secret" and "hidden" Communists. This will
include various types and shades of radicals and
liberals. The end will be the destruction of the
labor' movement and of the liberal anti-fascist
opposition.
There are certain measures we can and should
tak'e, it is true. The exercise of political rights
cannot be allowed to take the form of armed
and' uniformed storm troops. Such secret armed
organizations as John L. Spivak has uncovered
must and should be investigated. Civil liberties
cannot be construed as including the right to
use violence.
Fascism, it must be remembered, doesn't need
the name "fascist," or even any name at all.
Fascism is essentially merely a system of eco-
nomic planning, in which the government does
the planning by force, for the benefit of a small
property-owning class which controls the wealth
but which has lost the power of making profits
by free enterprise. When and if some form of
economic planning becomes necessary, the only
precaution that will prevent fascism will be the
insistence upon democratic control of the plan-
ning. Planning itself is not necessarily either
dangerous or undesirable, but it must be carried
ou by a democratic government subject to the
will of the people. The only way the continuance
of democratic government can be guaranteed is
by the most unrelenting vigilance for civil liberty.
It may be said that the Weimar Republic fell
becfuse it failed to protect itself from National
Soolalism, allowing the Hitler. movement to
prdpagandize, riot and grow without opposition.
That, however, is not a true story. The way was
paved for the Hitler dictatorship immediately
by1 the Bruening Centrist government and re-
motely by the Social-Democratic government.
The former initiated the restrictions on democ-
racy which Hitler carried to a logical conclusion,
while the latter failed to solve Germany's eco-
notic problems.
The same thing may be happening in France
at this moment, as Daladier employs dictatorial
decree powers.
It may occur in Britain within a short time,

Ten Succeseful
Years
President Hutchins did not say that "Ten
years is long enough for anyone to be a uni-
versity president," as has been rumored. How-
ever, he has said that if a university president
is going to accomplish anything he must do it
within ten years.
So, as the tenth year under Hutchins approach-
es the end, the Maroon has written a history of
his reign to show what he has accomplished and
perhaps to hint at what may be expected in the
future.
President Hutchins is not the God that some
of his admirers have made him out to be (as
see the article, "Hutchins of Chicago," by Milton
Mayer, in this month's Harper), and in any
evaluation of his work it is, of course, proper to
point out his faults. It is natural for the Maroon
to do this for there has been no more faithful-
and respectful-chastener of the President than
his "Personal Organ."
He deserves chastening for having stirred up
much useless argument by expressing his views
in language that few can understand. He de-
serves chastening for his exclusiveness-if he
associated with his faculty a little more, he'd
learn that not all professors are concerned
merely with gathering trivial facts in a highly
specialized field, but that they are more inter-
ested in "metaphysics" and the relations between
the different fields of study than he realizes.
He deserves chastening for carrying a sensible
and valuable educational theory to an extreme
by ignoring all but the intellectual aspects of
education.
But, despite the criticisms of alumni who don't
understand him and of faculty members whose
academic complacency he has disturbed, Presi-
dent Hutchins' page in the University's ledger
certainly has a strong credit balance.
As president of the University, Hutchins has
unquestionably been a success. He has been an
efficient administrator; a good money-getter,
considering that the country has been in a de-
pression during the entire ten years; and an
unparalleled publicist. He has defended the
academic freedom of his faculty and students.
These are the main duties of the average uni-
versity president, and he has done them well.
But Hutchins has been even a better educa-
tor than a president. He pushed through the
now famous but once bitterly criticized New
Plan. His much publicized but little-understood
views, whether right or wrong, are probably
the most significant contribution to educational
thought in several decades. Significant, in that
they have made not only educators but also
ordinary people realize that something is very
wrong with our present school system. Signifi-
cant, in that they have raised the fundamental
but usually ignored, problem of the purposes of
education. And significant, in that he has given
to this problem and to the problem of how to
achieve these purposes answers which hold out
the possibility of our educational system and
hence our society.
It is, as a rule, easier and more profitable to
criticize than to praise. Consequently, the Ma-
roon has usually done the former with regard
to President Hutchins. But we don't want it
thought that the Maroon dislikes him, personally
or intellectually.
We think it altogether fitting that the country's
most distinguished university should have the
country's most distinguished president.

TH EATRE
By NORMAN KELL
The Junior Girls' Play
It is a long cry from the first Junior Girls Play
given twenty-four years ago in the tiny audi-
torium of Barbour Gymnasium to "Pig in a
Poke" which the girls of the Class of '40 are
presenting this weekend at the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre.

Curiously enough, however, this year's presen-
tation reverts back to those days once more, in-
somuch as women only will participate. The
junior girls are coming into their own again,
outstripping the defunct men's theatrical organi-
zation, Mimes.
"Pig in a Poke" is the work of Richard McKel-
vey; who is also directing the production. Mr.
McKelvey has a long and distinguished record
behind him for he was assistant director of
last year's JGP, "The Mulberry Bush," winner
of a major Hopwood award, and director of the
Children's Theatre this year, for which he wrote
many of the scripts.
"Pig in a Poke" is a costume play of the
1800's. The poor but aristocratic southern colonel
and his wife take their beautiful daughter "no'th"
to snare a wealthy husband for her. How well
they succeed we have yet to find out, but we
could venture a guess. However, we shall wait
until Wednesday evening before revealing all.
Footnotes to Footlights: Since "Our Town,"
last year's Pulitzer Prize winner, has just been
released by Samuel French, we can expect a pro-
duction of it either by The Ann Arbor Dramatic
Season or Play Production . . . Whitford Kane
accepted Sawyer Falk's invitation to play Capt.
Obediah Rich of "Excursion" fame at Syracuse
University last weekend. Mr. Kane, if you remem-
ber, did as much for U. of M. a year and a half
ago.
May 4th will mark the tenth anniversary of
the opening of the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The first offering was a dance recital by students
of the Department of Physical Education under
the direction of Miss White. A week later, Comedy
Club presented "Granite," followed the next

WASHINGTON, March 16.-Simply as an
example of the new technique of conquest-by
undermining a small country and stirring up
sentiment for partition of territory-the events
in central Europe in the last 24 hours have pre-
sented to official groups here a realistic picture
of modern dictatorships.
To a government which is being importuned
to "mind its own business" and close its eyes to
what is happening abroad, the demolition of
the Czecho-Slovakian state, after assurances had
been given by the German leaders that its inde-
pendence would be respected, is not a develop-
ment easy to ignore.
Nothing is said officially, of course, but dis-
appointment and chagrin is evident on every
side. The pronouncement by Prime Minister
Chamberlain that the dismemberment of Czecho-
Slovakia is "contrary to the spirit of the Munich
agreement" affords small comfort here to those
in the Department of State who have believed
all along that the British policy of "appeasement"
has been wrong. Being confronted with a series
of accomplished facts, the diplomacy of the
hour is to say nothing, but to strengthen the
policy of armament building.
The Administration will have a substantial
majority in Congress for its national defense
program, but this is not saying that persons
whose views coincide with those of the fascist
leaders would not like to undermine the American
project. Thus, already one hears sniping here
and there about "nobody ever attacking Ameri-
ca," about air invasions being fantastic and the
like. But Congressional committees have un-
covered evidence that agents of foreign govern-
ments seek in every way to distract the attention
of the authorities from policies which may be
unfavorable to foreign countries.
One of the favorite forms of attack against
governmental policies of national defense, an
one in which innocent Americans are being
duped, is that which accuses the Administration
of wanting to go to war to assist oppressed per-
sons abroad. These latter folks are pictured as
"the scum of Europe," and there is a complete
indifference even to the fact that intellectuals
have been persecuted along with the others.
So-called "patriotic societies" are being urged
to fight a "letting down of immigration bars,"
when, in truth, back of such urging is an effort
to develop nationalistic sentiment here coinci-
dent with the type of thinking one encounters in
the fascist state. Some of the same elements which
would like to see union labor crushed and sub-
jected to the fascist type of governmental regu-
lation appear every now and then to be backin'i
the propaganda which is being spread against
the extension of American sympathies, for ex-
ample, to unfortunate Czechs or other peoples
who have come under the heel of the dictator-
ship states.
While it is true that emotionalism does not
make and should not dominate foreign policy at
any time, it is strange to read some of the propa-
ganda against American interest in oppressed
people which pours into the national Capital
daily from those who profess to be interested
only in America. The idea of humanitarian
motives in a governmental policy seems to have
been brushed aside by these critics as something
not to be accepted any more, and as if it were
only a relic of bygone days of mistaken senti-
mentality. The notion that, nearly two thousand
years ago, a great religion was founded on the
principle of human brotherhood and of seeking
to spread tolerance, kindliness, and considera-
tion for one's fellowman, instead of hates and
selfishness and indifference to human suffering,
has been overlooked in the literature of race
hatred emanating from so-called "patriotic"
groups. It is as sure a way to divide Americans
as the Germans used in Czecho-Slovakia.
Military wars never settled anything satisfac-
torily, to be sure, and there isn't in the national
Capital any group which believes America must
engage in a war with a European power in order
to secure respect for her citizens or for her point
of view. But it can hardly be denied that the im-
portance of building up armaments now has been
fully Kecognized as a means of preventing war.
What is happening in central Europe will in-
sure, if anything was needed to do it, the pass-
age of the President's defense program, and it
is assumed here it will speed up the British and
French programs, too. For the foreign news
carries with it the implication that no material

change can be expected in the dictatorship poli-
cies until the democracies show much more
solidarity than they have to date.
Harlemn,
New York
Unfortunately for the Negro and for the
City as a whole, recommendations are worthless,
unless backed by enabling legislation. And it is
probable that Federal, State, and City action,
though far better than no action at all, will not
radically improve employment or living condi-
tions in Harlem. The only answer seems to lie
in the destruction of color barriers and in equal
opportunity for Negro jobs in private employ-
ment.
Asked for their opinion on Harlem's single
greatest need, many Negro leaders have answered
that it is for the white man to become intelli-
gently conscious of the Negro. James M. Hubert,
executive director of the Urban League, a Negro
social service unit that has probably done more
for Harlem than any other single organization.

TODAY in
WASH INGTON
-by David Lawrence-

* t

F Hercules Renda, the genial little
halfback, begins to show a cynical
disregard of his professed friends, we
think we have the explanation. Stand-
ing in a long line at a local theatre
Sunday afternoon, Herc was ap-
proached by at least ten back-slap-
ping cronies who handed him an
assortment of currency and small
change and asked him to buy their
tickets. "What about your change?"
Hero inquired as confusion began to
envelop him. "Oh, keep it," one appre-
ciative fellow told him. That was
mighty white of them, Herc must
have thought, as he planked down the
money at the ticket cage and asked
for twelve tickets.
Here passed out the ducats and
watched hise"friends" hurry into the
theatre. Then he looked gravely at
fifteen cents he was still holding, did
some silent calculating, after which
the confusion left his face." Say," he
said quietly, "I'm twenty cents short."
A short pause ensued, during which
his good nature overcame the angry
imp within him clamoring for retri-
bution, and Here went into the dark
theatre shrugging his broad shoulders.
WEEKEND thoughts and observa-
tions: Those seniors, sobered by
the sad prospect of finding jobs,
shouldn't look so glum. They may
yet be treated to a trip abroad and a
romp among the poppies, expenses
prepaid . . . Remember Dorothy
Parker's comforting remark: "The
only thing I learned in school was
that by wetting a pencil eraser I
found you could erase ink." . . . An-
other year in school, free of extra-
curricular attractions and with plenty
of time to read, might compensate
for the four quick years . . . Many
parents will likely greet the graduat-
ing sonnies with a surprised "So
soon?" anyhow . . . A junior, who
in a moment of academic despair, ob-
serves: "This place ain't no magnifi-
cent obsession; it's a hoodoo' house,"
ought to be reminded that there's
always WPA . . .
The D.A.R., unmindful of the hiss-
ing provoked by mention of their
name in an American history class
the other day, should be more con-
cerned by the Gallup Poll's revela-
tion that 67 per cent of the country
approved Mrs. F.D.R.'s resignation
because of their Nazi-like attitude to-
ward artist Marian Anderson . . .
Garner vs. Dewey for President is
favored in the Spring book . . . Thatl
accordina tune, "Beer Barrel," sounds
like a calliope number and suggests
a carnival to some people, but to us
it has a trace of Strauss and whips
up a terrific yen to travel.1
It used to be said that only twelve
men understand Einstein's Theory
of Relativity, but the great scientist
himself, when asked for a simple defi-
nition, said: "When a man sits witht
a pretty girl for an hour, it seems
to him only a minute. But let himt
sit on a hot stove for only a minute
-and it's longer than any hour.r
That's 'Relativity'!" . . . Prof. Edu-
ard Benes of the University of Chica-
go, speaking on the radio of the dis-
membered nation over which he for-
merly presided, classified himself as I
a divine optimist when he said his
people's "spirit will prevail over the1
sword." . . ., Someone ought to tell
Hitler those things...
Stan' Kelley, limping about the1
campus after an unfortunate experi-
ence at the Butler Relays, explains:
"I ran second to an "I" beam."
Roy Heath has transferred his allegi-
ance to Gargoyle . . .

off from the main stream of New
York City life.
A leading Negro complaint is that"
the average American is inclined to1
dismiss as picturesque the conditions
under which the Negro lives, but is
shocked and worried when the white1
man lives under them. The Negro,
it is frequently said, must convincex
his white neighbors that he is not
happy, content, and unthinking under
inhuman conditions.-r
Probably the single greatest gain
in Harlem history occurred last year,
when the Negro community, throughl
its own efforts, forced through the
Harlem Employment Agreement un-
der the auspices of the Uptown Cham-
ber of Commerce, acting for hundreds
of retail stores, and the Greater New
York Co-ordinating Committee for
Employment, representing 200 Negro
groups.
The agreement stipulates that "att
least one third of the White Collar
jobs in Harlem stores will go to Ne-1
groes . . . No white employees willI
be fired, the Negro quota will be built
up. as white employees leave, etc." As
an editorial in one New York paper
put it, "This agreement means that
Harlem takes a step toward becoming
an integrated community, instead of
an exploited colony within the city.".
Thus Harlem has been alluded to
as New York City's greatest challenge
as well as its greatest problem. As
a leader among American cities, New
York, in finding a normal place for
its Negroes, is faced with a problem
