THE ATTEMPT of most Americans to
escape as far aspossible from the

T HE REQUIREMENTS demanded of
students who wish to apply for fly-
ing. instruction under the Student Pilot Training
Program were recently issued in preparation for
the beginning of the course this semester.
Twenty students will be selected.
Strangely enough (to those of us- who had
heard that the Civil Aeronautics Autuhority had
provided funds for the costs of the program),
it now appears that a fee of $60 will be charged
for the course-$50 to be paid to the University
for insurance and $10 for a Federal medical
examination. The effect of this charge will un-
doubtedly be the elimination of applicants from
that two-thirds of the student body that works
its own way throtgh college, partly or in the
whole.
We have seen in many countries the result
of the establishment of an officer class based
upon economic lines. We have seen in many
countries how such an army easily becomes the
instrument of reactionary movements and throws
its support against the maintenance of demo-
cratic government and the provision of a fuller
life for the masses of people.
In numerous editorials we have pointed out
the danger of our increased armaments, if no
provision is made to democratize the army and
navy-if no change is made in the present
system of selecting officers. It is obvious that in
the case of the Student Pilot's Training Program,
which in effect provides for the establishment
of an auxiliary air force, no economic barrier
must be placed in the way of applicants, if
democratic principles are to be maintained-if
we are to have a fair guarantee that this very
same air force will not be used against the
American people themselves should ever the at-
tempt be made to keep them in subjection and
deprive them of their rights as human beings.
With the gradual development of political
democracy in this country we have seen the
disappearance of the poll tax and of the prop-
erty qualifications that formerly were placed
upon both voters and candidates for office. Yet
the threat embodied in any proposed reversion
to economic discrimination in the political field
could hardly be greater than the threat involved
in economic discrimination in the organization
of our air force.
Since the fee has been impoed at the request
of the Civil Aeronautics Authority, the only
thing the University can do is to threaten to
reject the scheme for Michigan if the fee is not
removed.
While it may be too late to make this threat
in reference to the trial period this next semes-
ter, it is certain that pressure should be brought
to bear to prevent the maintenance of the fee
next year when the program is expanded. It is
clear that if all the universities included in the
scheme enter a vigorous protest, the fee will be
dropped.
The Daily would like to encourage comment
from the campus on this subject. The "Forum"
column will be open.

cond., 10 sides, 5-12", Victor Set VM-520, $10.00.
At last the Domestic Symphony is on records
-a fact that will be hailed with varying en-
thusiasm by Strauss fiends and others who are
not so sensitive to beauties Straussian. The fact

that the Symphony, which had its first playing
in our own New York City in March, 1904, pos-
sesses one of the cutest and most sentimental
"programs" of all the Strauss group is a point
very much in its favor to those can't enjoy
the music but who like to follow the story as
told by an annotator with an over-worked imag-
ination. Those to whom the profundities of
Zarathustra and the subtleties of Till Eulen-
spiegel are eternal enigmas can turn with relief
to the homespun spectacle of a day in the
Strauss domage, with baby splashing in his bath
While relations quarrel over the dubious honors
of family resemblance.
Personally, we find all such programs so much
superfluous piffle, useful only to those to whom
the music means nothing. And we likewise dis-
agree with those cynics who look for so much
in the music that they can find nothing. To us,
Strauss' style, quite the same though it is in all
the orchestral poems, has given to music a full-
bloodedness, a spirit of Gemuetlichkeit, that is
unique in music. Sometimes this spirit speaks in-
evitably with less force and directness than at
other times-and the Domestic Symphony seems
to be one of these times.
The Straussian spirit is certainly there, in all
its restless vigor, its Teutonic wit, and its senti-
mental tenderness. But, perhaps because the
themes do not appear so fresh and pliable as
those of Till or Don Juan, there seems to be mdre
"paper music" and less genius than is usual with
Strauss. The Adagio movement is to us the most
moving, with the double-fugued Finale second,
while the Introduction and Scherzo are inter-
esting chiefly from the programmatic stand-
point. But for Straussites the whole set will be
a treasure-trove, not the least becaueo nf the

TODAY
WASHINGTON-
-by David Lawrence-
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13-When, less than
twenty days from now, March 4 arrives, it will
be exactly six years since President Roosevelt
entered the White House.
On the fourth anniversary of his taking the
oath, President Coolidge made public his famous
"I-do-not-choose-to-run" statement.
Will Mr. Roosevelt issue any such statement
on March 4 about a third term?
There are supposedly only two assumptions
possible--one, that Mr. Roosevelt wants a third
term and will directly or indirectly influence
his own renomination, and the other is that
he does not want the nomination, will discour-
age his friends from nominating him, and will,
in short, refuse to accept a third nomination.
Quite generally in the political realm, it is
being assumed that Mr. Roosevelt's silence is
related to the first of these two courses and
that, if he really did not want a third term, he
would say so now and eliminate himself from
all consideration.
But the experience which President Coolidge
had with his own renunciation statement rathr
points to the probability that, even if Mr. Roose-
velt intends to refuse a third nomination, he
would be making a serios error to say so priv-
ately or publicly a moment sooner than such a
statement has to be made, namely on the eve
of the National. Convention in June, 1940.
The best way to understand the political
dangers of an anti-third term statement at this
time is to imagine that, on March 4 of this year,
Mr. Roosevelt will use the words of Mr. Coolidge
and say, "I do not choose to run for the presi-
dency in 1940."
It will be recalled that, for a while in 1927,
such a statement was accepted as sincere be-
cause President Coolidge was known as a man
who took definite positions and stuck to them.
Yet, in a few weeks, the first "Draft Coolidge"
clubs were started, and, notwithstanding the
appearance of other candidates in the field,
there was a "draft Coolidge movement right
up to the 'eve of the Kansas City convention
in June, 1928, which nominated Herbert Hoover.
In the present instance, it would not dispose
of the third term question at all. The Roosevelt
friends, both in office and out of office, would
insist on a 'jdraft Roosevelt" movement. There
wouled be demands from the opposition that Mr.
Roosevelt repudiate such movements and say
the forceful words, "I shall not accept even if
nominated.",
But do even such statements close the door
in politics? The "draft Roosevelt" leaders would
look upon the statement, however worded, as
a natural expression from a man who sincerely
wants to dispose of the matter, but they would
insist that he has really little to say about it,
that the country and the cause of "liberalism"
demanded reconsideration by him of his deci-
sion, and they would seek to confront him with
a third nomination just the same.
Frm some points of view, the strategy of
the "draft Roosevelt" group would be designed
to keep Roosevelt supporters together till the
last minute, so they could at the proper time
throw their strength to a "true liberal," that
is to a man Mr. Roosevelt himself would favor.
Certainly, a cohesive group of pro-Roosevelt men
can have a lot to say about the type of candi-
date who shall have the next nomination of the
Democratic Party. The longer the President
keeps silence, the greater help he can be to such
groups.
From Mr. Roosevelt's standpoint, the fate of
all the liberal measures which he has espoused
depends on the kind of candidate nominated by
his own party in 1940, and if it should appear
that a "reactionary" Democrat is on the way
ward winning the nomination when June,
1940, rolls around, the demand to have Mr.
Roosevelt reconsider any definite refusal he may
have made before would take on the aspect of
a "liberal" crusade. The President would be told
that personal considerations or even explicit

previous statements about a third term which
he might have made should be brushed aside.
Roosevelt supporters like Secretary Ickes and
Senator Norris of Nebraska already have inti-
mated publicly that the President might be com-
pelled to run for a third term to save "liberal-
ism" in America.
cellent classical Mozart style by an organization
that is no more. The La Finta Overture, hither-
to unrecorded, is the curtain-raiser to. a three-
act opera-bouffe composed in 1774. Like Mo-
zart's other overtures of the same period (he was
then 18), it is in one movement only, bustling
and jolly, though without much melodic depth.
The Titus Overture, on the other hand, dates
from 1790 and is much more mature, bearing
more than one resemblance to the Overture to
The Magic Flute which followed a year later.
Both sides of the record make delightful listen-

One of the less familiar of Toscanini's beloved
Italian overtures, but full of rollicking melody
and ingratiating rhythm. The performance seems
a trifle over-dynamic for music thinly written,
but then the Maestro is always dynamic or noth-
ing, and certainly no one can object to the bon
esprit with which he endows this music of an age
now nearing oblivion.

You of M
By Sec Terry
DESPITE Gargoyle's foreboding
wish, in its puerile take-off of the
Daily, this department survived the
midyear putsch. And now, every
crammed fact having been conveni-
ently disposed of, we rejoin the as-
sembly line for more mass condition-
ing. Yesterday, some lecture courses
bulged with airy-headed students,
looking for those unmistakable signs
of a "pipe," viz., the presence of
Heath or certain sorority sisters who
have some infallible means of ferret-
ing out the right professor. It's amus-
mg how the gospel spreads. In a his-
tory course in current events the in-
structor forgot to hang up the S.R.O.
sign, and the eager disciples were
packed around the walls, chattering
of J-Hop and juleps, unaware likely
of the latest move' of the designing
blackmailers overseas. In another
course, a "turkey" presided over by
a lecturer of veiled threats and alarm-
ing innuendoes, there was a signifi-
cant number of vacant seats, and
when it was announced that 200
pages of outside reading a week were
the minimum requirement, the lady
dispensing drop cards subsequently
got a big play.
And so the conveyor's belt sped
along, carrying with it the malleable
stuff known as an undergraduate.
Its whirling sounds recalled Sinclair
Lewis' apt description of The Uni-
versity of Winnemac, the "Michigan"
at which Martin Arrowsmith learned
physical chemistry under the good
Dr. Max Gottleib, whom Lewis drew
from the career of Dr. F. G. Novy,
dean-emeritus of the Medical School
here, and described as the one really
noble character he ever created. Of
the university, Lewis wrote:
"It is not a snobbish rich man's
college, devoted to leisurely non-
sense. It is the property of the
people of the state, and what
they want-or what they are told
they want--is a mill to turn out
men and women who will lead
moral lives, play bridge, drive
good cars, be enterprising in
business, and occasionally men-
tion books, though they are not
expected to have time to read
them. It is a Ford Motor Factory,
and if its products rattle a little,
they are beautifully standard-
ized, with perfectly interchange-
able parts."

VIGNETTE of a modern scholar:
She was doing mediocre work in
her story-writing course, and had
vague misgivings about the outcome.
A final story was due; she had a dis-1
tracting cough and sore throat-the,
academic fates seemed to conspire;
against her. Finally, she went to the
Health Service, got two bottles of
cough syrup, containing some apri-
cot brandy. She liked her first swig
so well she downed both bottles in
huge, successive gulps-it was heady
if not potent stuff, and she became
mildly "crocked." In this state she sat
down and wrote a "stream-of-con-
sciousness" story, her brain reeling in
alcoholic confusion.
She got an "A" on the story, ac-
companied by flattering comments.

Quite visible to all.

For 'tis the practiced eye

(Not such have you nor I.)
For if it's true that Nature is
The basis of all Art,

Then tell me this, my critic-friend,
If you don't think the man
Who's average in all his tastes
Can judge what's good, "Who can?"

"Hair will be cut shorter this
year, say the experts, and ears
will be shown by their owners if
they are grade A ears. A casualty
of the last season was the black
lipstick which failed to catch on.
"The convention closes Wed-
nesday but before that the hair-
dressers will hear an address of
Mayor Reading who once had
hair himself."
Testing stations for grading the
ears will be set up in Highland Park,
Grosse Pointe, and Hamtramck, we
