as long as they continue to fight they will con-
tinue to win. But their victory is not one restricted
to Hanover, N. H. It is another triumph in the
long and sometimes tedious process of establish-
ing a militant democracy in every phase of our
national life. At Dartmouth the students have
achieved the fundamental guarantee of democ-
racy and freedom, the maintainance of a fearless
and vigorous press enlisted in the never-ending
struggle against the abuses of the status-quo
and for progress on the campus and in the nation.
Congratulations, Dartmouth!

H-eywood Brown
There is grave doubt, I believe, as to whether
the Republican Slumber Hour- will find a spon-
sor. It is insufficiently informative to rank as
an educational program, and
the laughs are few and far
between. This last fact is
not altogether a fault, for at
least one listener finds Her-
bert Hoover easier to take
:" since he quit his recent
efforts to function as a gag
man.
On this particular period
he introduced only two epigrams and a single
anecdote. He used the story about the little boy
who found it easier to take a clock apart than
to put it together again. This, it may be re-
marked, is not brand new. For the most part
Mr. Hoover played straight man in his role of
m.c. Some commentators had voiced the theory
that the ex-President might use the occasion to
launch a 1940 boom for himself. As to that I do
not know, although it may be significant that
in his long address the only two Republicans
whom he mentioned by name were Abraham
Lincoln and Herbert Clark Hoover. They received
approximately equal attention._
Possibly the program could be strengthened by
a greater use of musical interludes. "Columbia,
the Gem of the Ocean," was delightfully rend-
ered, and the male chorus, which did the ditty
about stout-hearted men, performed adequately.
But the five Governors constituted a hill-billy
band. It was shocking that an evening dedicated
to America's greatest speaker and finest prac-
tictioner in English prose should have contained
so much of downright illiteracy in oratory, eco1
nomics, history and even grammar.
* * *
'Win Wisconsin'
Possibly the high point was reached by Gov-
ernor Julius P. Heil of Wisconsin, who spoke of
"laying down to sleep." But, though Governor
Heil's grammar was bad, his sentiments were
worse, for he indulged in a sudden and seemingly
impromptu excusion into anti-Semitism by de-
claring his pleasure because all the audience
appeared to be composed "of Christian ladies
and Christian gentlemen." And this marked the
most fervent applause of the evening.
Herbert Hoover referred to a series of college
courses as "a curricular," and John D. M. Ham-
ilton spoke of Connecticut's "Chartered oak." It
was a sad night for any Nutmeg listeners. Even
the most bitter political foes of Dean Cross nevei
denied that he spoke invariably with ease and
grace and felicity. His successor, young Mr. Ray
Baldwin, apparently suffered from mike fright
or got hold.of a bad Cliveden crumpet during his
long wait. He got so snarled up in the last few
moments of his brief address that he seemed to
feel he was a phrase-maker as soon as he said
"the American way." He used it five times in
four sentences before it was possible to warm up
another Governor on the bench.
* * *
None of the Governors seemed to be a pro-
found student of the man whose memory was
honored. "You can fool some of the people all
the time," seemed to be about as far as any of
the executives had gone in his homework.
Governor Baldwin, for instance, pictured Lin-
coln as a President who was passionate in his
belief in unabridged States' rights. Carr, of"
Colorado, made the extraordinary statement,
"Lincoln knew little of the science of govern-
ment." And Harlan J. Bushfield, of South Dako-
ta, at least implied that the Great Emancipator
believed in peace at any price.
It would be an excellent idea if every orator on
the Republican Slumber Hour were assigned to
see Robert E. Sherwood's "Abe Lincoln in Illi-
nois" before ever again attempting to interpret
publicly the name and fame of our greatest
President.

And it may be that I am too captious a critic.
Quite possibly the show will be received more
favorably along the short wave band than here
at home.

Th e Dartmouth
College Case, 1939 . .
ALL THE PROBLEMS of a student
newspaper came into the spotlight
this week at Dartmouth with the conclusion of
an 18-month battle between the administra-
tion and the student body over the control and
ownership of The Dartmouth, the college daily:
In the spring of 1937 the Dartmouth Board
of Trustees accepted a recommendation of
President Hopkins that a committee be ap-
pointed to investigate the "conditions under
which student publications . . . are managed."
This decision followed a year in which the stu-
dent paper conducted, arong others, these cam-
paigns: they upheld the position of the work-
men on strike at the Proctor quarries in the
company town of Proctor, Vt. and defended the
right of collective bargaining; they lined up on
the side of a proposed group medicine plan which
has since gone into operation; and they went
to bat for a cooperative grocery store.
The investigating committee appointed by
the President was headed by an alumnus and in-
cluded no representation from the group most
interested in the outcome-the student body.
In May, 1938, 'the committee recommended the
appointment of an "Alumni Trustee," who would
"hold all or a controlling part of the corporate
stock of the paper in trust for the Trustees of
the College." They suggested that "the Alumni
Trustee should have the right at any time and
for reasons that seem good to him to remove any
member of the editorial or business boards."
One of the most significant statements in
the report flayed the student editors of the
Dartmouth for devoting "an inordinate amount of
editorial space to criticism direct and implicit
of the social order and in promotion of means
which they believe useful in bringing about
changes they would wish." But this was not all.
The committee further censured the student
editors for concerning themselves with and
criticizing the College athletic program!
What did the students think of these charges?
They protested vigorously and the bitter battle
that ensued boosted the plan into the headlines
of metropolitan newspapers, slidified student,
alumni and faculty opposition and forced the
appointment of an arbitration committee con-
sisting of the editor-in-chief of The Dartmouth,
a representative of the administration and an
impartial chairman. This past week the arbitra-
tion committee recommended and President
Hopkins accepted a new plan eliminating the
"Alumni"Trustee" in favor of an 11-man board
consisting of eight students, a faculty member,
an alumnus and a member of the administration.
The resentment of the students against the
original plan for an "Alumni.Trustee" is perhaps
best summed up in an editorial in the Dart-
mouth last week celebrating- the victory and
warning the students that the fight is not yet
over, that the student members of the new board
will have to guard against "unquestioning ac-
ceptance" of the supposedly better "opinbns of
older men." "The tendency of the student to give
way to what he thinks is experience, and what is
reaction, is sad and very real"
The editorial continues - It mi hi a +fiai,1 . fn

The FLYING
TRAPEZE
--- By Roy Heath -
Swados Takes Over
(NOTE: Having Harvey Swados work-
ing for The Trapeze is roughly analog-
gous to having J. P. Morgan working
for the office boy. Swados is one of the
people on this campus who can write
among many who are only laboring
under the illusion. -R.H.)
When Roy Heath asked me to do a
guest column for him, I thought I
might write something funny, because
Roy always manages to keep his
column pretty funny. But it's too hard
these days; there are very few men
writing for newspapers who can keep
you entertained and still tell you
about the things that are bothering
them . Of course there is Broun, but
I'm no Broun. So I want to tell you
about a couple of things that are
bothering me.
First thing, I went into the lava-
tory in the Angell Hall cellar the
other day, and instead of the usual
obscenities I found this sentence
scrawled on the wall: What America
Needs: A Jew Hanging From Every
Lamppost. I don't care whether you
believe me or not; if you go there be-
fore the janitors have washed the
walls you'll see it. And it doesn't
make any difference that some boy
crossed out "Jew" and wrote in
"Nazi." The fact remains we who live
in our cloistered, secluded, little uni-
versity town are neither cloistered
nor secluded. All the barbarians aren't
in Germany, or Italy, or in Spain.
Sometimes we forget that.
And there's another thing I'd like
to tell you about. I went downtown
about a month ago because All Quiet
On The Western Front was playing
at the Orpheum. I'd seen it several
times before, but as you know it's
the kind of picture that you can see
more than once or twice. Anyway,
there were a couple of high school
kids sitting next to me, boys of about
sixteen or seventeen. In the middle of
the battle scenes, those scenes which
no one can ever forget, when the
German boy lies writhing and scream-
ing, "I can't see! I can't see!" these
American boys sat there chewing their
peanuts and having a hell of a good
time. And they were saying things
like this: "Boy, look at those Ger-
mans run. Wow, right in the guts.
Hey, there come the Yanks. Boy,
look at them go. Zingo, right in the
head."
Now, I don't think I'm crazy when
I say that there is a direct connec-
tion between these two incidents, and
I don't think I'm a coward when I
say that this sort of thing is enough
to scare hell out of me. But being
scared doesn't do any good. Even see-
ing the connection doesn't do muchI
good, although it helps. So far we
Americans have had a good part in
handing Czechoslovakia over to the
Germans, Spain to the Italians, China
to the Japs. You know what I mean.I
Bombs marked Made in Wilmington,
Del. have been blasting the guts outI
of Spaniards and Chinese.
But maybe that doesn't mean any-
thing to you. OK. Maybe you think
it's too much trouble to drop a post-i
card to Washington asking that they
lift the Spanish embargo. OK. May-I
be you think that the rest of the
world is going to kill itself off and;
leave us alone. OK.a
But just remember that there is
somebody in Ann Arbor who thinks
it would be a good idea to hang a
Jew from every laippost and that
there are kids in town who like the
smell of fresh blood. Think it over,,
and maybe you might do something
before they get you marching behindI
the Leader with your arm stuck out
in the air and your father in a stink- ,

ing concentration camp in Detroit.
Think it over.

The leaves blowing, and the young
girls blowing
With the tread of leaves along the
windy street:
They take no heed of the wind at his
busy mowing;
They mock his season with laughter
shrill and sweet,
And insolent, and unknowing.
But the wind will have them as it has
the others.
Like all the lovely and insolent ones
before,
They too will be brought to bed; they
will be mothers
Of dead men blown like leaves on

Collective Bargaining
Have employers become sufficiently reconciled
to collective bargaining so that they no longer
need to be "coerced" into such bargaining by
the Wagner Labor Relations Act? Are they .will-
ing, after two years of "compulsion" under the
validated Labor Act, to meet and negotiate on a
voluntary basis with representatives selected
freely by their employees? This is the nub of the
question as to whether coercive features of the
Wagner Act should be eliminated by Congres-
sional amendment. Dr. A. Howard Myers, New
England Director of the National Labor Relations
Board, addressing the Massachusetts Congress of
Industrial Organizations at Springfield last week,
say9 the answer is "No!"
While a large section of industry realizes thAt
collective bargaining is here to stay and that
labor peace can be achieved only by concessions
on both sides, there still are some "bitter-enders"
who feel they ultimately can crush the labor
unions by modifying the Wagner Act through
amendments, in the opinion of Dr. Myers. He
concludes, therefore, that the Act should not
be modified.
A iri ,ni 1 lpa viA rAf C4..A m, YTT

the reason for labor organizations. We said that
. . a single employee was helpless in dealing
with an employer; . . . that union was essential
to give laborers opportunity to deal on an equal-
ity with their employer." This newspaper believes
the Wagner Act should be "leveled up" in some
respects, but any amendment should retain vital
provisions which make collective bargaining real.

Professors In Politics
The conspicuous political activity by University
of Chicago facultymen at the present time furn-
ishes an outstanding example of the entry of
emininent educators into government affairs, and
of the possible benefit from such action.
The :three-cornered race for mayor of Chicago
finds the politically-conscious faculty at the
Hutchins school pretty well split up. Paul Doug-
las, the well-known economist, has thrown his
hat in the race for alderman in the fifth ward,
with the blessings of the Kelly faction. Douglas,
who will be remembered for his attempts to
induce Harold L. Ickes to enter the mayoralty
campaign, has taken several raps at Crusader
