Sheen's God And Spain
To the Editor:
A God so real as the one described by Msgr.
Sheen would not be insensible to the truths and
falsities of the Spanish conflict. Unfortunately
nothing was said in the question period on this
issue and the speaker had to rush away for a
radio engagement. The following open letter of
Ernest S. Bates as printed in the New Republic
indicates that others have wondered about the
consistency of Msgr. Sheen's incessant attacks
upon the Government of Spain and his spoken
and written championing of "God and Intelli-
gence."

HE AGE-OLD debate about the
T nature of a liberal education seems
e swinging toward the sound view that books
classes as the path to a general cultural
kground are woefully inadequate today. In
, both the ends and the means are justly
g criticized for their inadequacy.
wo things seem essential in the training of
h in 1939: an awareness of the problems
; face our topsy-turvy world (including efforts
nswer them), and an ability to cooperate with
r people in the handling of these problems
in ordinary day-to-day work.
nvinced of these needs, the Daily issues
nnual,invitation to second-semester fresh-
and to sophomores to join its editorial,
ts, women's and, business staffs. The writing
editing of news, the formulation of editorials
the management of a going business ieet
e needs, for an alertness to what is going
n the world, the nation, the state and the
ersity is part pf the equipment of a member
newspaper staff, as is the ability to work with
r people in a common endeavor.
ae necessary balance between theory and
tice is inherent in the working of The
ligan Daily. The Daily has in fact been the
Zing ground for some distinguished alumni,
have gone not only into newspaper work
he staffs of Detroit, Chicago, and New York
es will testify), but into other fields, as
rney-General Frank Murphy and Thomas
ey have done.
ie freshmen and sophomores who come out
he Daily will become members of an institu-
that has year after year won awards anong
ge newspapers and at the same time, but
' important, they will have the opportunity
upplement their formal instruction with
tical experience in dealing with real prob-
-an item of equipment that the individual
society sorely need today.

Sir: I address this letter to you for three reas-
ons. First, there is no one who has occupied more
deservedly than yourself a high place among the
leaders of liberal Catholic thought in America.
As a graduate of the University of Louvain, win-
ner of the Cardinal Mercier prize in philosophy
and author of a series of distinguished works in
metaphysics and ethics, you have been probably
the foremost American upholder of the great
Scholastic tradition. Second, some years ago, I
had a slight but very pleasant personal contact
with you on the occasion of my reviewing your
"God and Intelligence"-a work which I thought
then and still think a remarkably able defen
of the philospohy of St. Thomas Aquinas. Third,
and most important, I, like hundreds of other
American liberals, have been profoundly shocked
by your recent emphatic stand in support of the
anti-liberal, anti-democratic and anti-American
regime of General Franco in Spain. If these
words sound extreme, they are not mine but
General Franco's in the interview reported in
O'Seculo, May, 1938, when he referred to "the
common enemy: Asiatic bolshevism and all its'
allies, democracy, liberalism and Freemasonry"
-or they are those of Pemartin, Minister of
Education, in his official work, "Que Es 'Lo Nue-
vo'?" (What Is the Nev?) in? which he refers to
the United States as a negligible foe already
suffering "under the moral depression of the
defeat which Japan will inflict upon them." The
authors of those words seem strange bedfellows
for an American liberal.
Seeks Direct Answer
I venture to hope that you will not avoid the
issue, as some of your colleagues in the Keep-
the-Embargo movement have done, by advancing
the cheap evasion that you are merely neutral.
You must admit that, at the time the embargo
was passed, Italy and Germany were pretending
to observe the Non-Intervention Agreement; that
that pretense has long since been abandoned;
that Americap supplies and munitions have
reached and are reaching the Spanish Fascists
via Germany and Italy; and that, in the most
practical sense, just as lifting the embargo would
admittedly benefit the Loyalists, so keeping it
benefits the Fascists. All this is too obvious to dis-
cuss. I therefore assume that your theories and
practice are in harmony at least to the extent that
you support the cause of General Franco in
theory as you actually support it in practice.
Your position has been taken In the name of
"religious freedom." No phrase is dearer to the
hearts of Americans. We have not forgotten the
bloody struggle through several centuries to
achieve that ideal nor that the ideal was first
fully realized on American soil and was first
embodied with full effectiveness in the Connsti-
tution of the United States. And we mean by the
phrase not only something very dear but some-
thing very definite. We mean religious freedom
for all, not merely for some particular group,
whether Catholic or Protestant. Is that what you,
also, mean by it? And we mean further that our
conception of religious freedom carries with it
as a necessary corollary to make it effective the
absolute separation of Church and State. Do
you also mean that?
The reason for asking these questions will be
perfectly clear to you. As you know, in rebel
Spain there is religious freedom for Catholics
only and Catholicism is the established state
religion. You are doubtless familiar with the offi-
cial statement by Pemartin which reads: "The
Spanish state must be Catholic . . . No public
worship of any other religion will be permitted.
It is said by some, including well mentioned
Catholics, that the opinions of others must be
tolerated and respected. We emphatically reject
this assertion." Does Pemartin's statement-the
official statement of the Franco' government-
express your idea of religious freedom?
Thorning's Dispatch
You are probably also familiar with Father
Thorning's jubilant dispatch to the Catholic Tab-
let (Brooklyn): "The Nationalist (Franco) gov-
ernment has decreed that all State school-teach-
ers must be Catholics." Does that, too, express
your idea of religious freedom?
It is surely not discourteous to point out that
these are Catholics. Put very bluntly-but this is
a time for plain speaking-what liberal Protest-
ants insist upon knowing is whether some of our
professedly liberal Catholic friends, including
yourself, give more than lip-service to the Ameri-

can principle of the separation of. Church and
State (which is also an accepted principle in
the Loyalist Spain Republic). The unpleasant
suspicion will not down that some of them-by
no means all-support it only as a strategic meas-
use when they are in a minority and that they
really mean by "religious liberty" liberty for no
one but Catholics. In other words, that their-
and your-liberalism is a muatter of policy, not of
conviction. How otherwise explain vnur attnknn

Heywood Broun
STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 24-After watching
and reading of recent didoes among members
of the human race it is refreshing to turn for a
day and contemplate the
lower animals hereabouts.
Our feathered friends, natur-
ally enough, lack our intelli-
gence, but they haestheir
points. I am not 'fdlng
those who believe that civili-
zation is about to crumble,
but if it does a new one
might be evolved within the
chicken coop. Several million years, or make it
billions, might be required for the hen and the
rooster to come up to those cultural marks at-
tained by men and women. But speaking for my
own brood of Rhode Island Reds, it must be
,said that they would not start behind scratch in
every respect.
The group of fourteen fowls with which I am
acquainted is handicapped key gluttony, avariei-
ousness and, to a slight extent, by lust. No doubt
it would take a fearfully long time for them to
scotch these errors and become fit to associate
with us. But in some matters of learning they
are not laggard. Thus, though they bicker while
ambling about by day, they huddle together for
protection when the nights turn bitter.
The troupe did contain an underdog, although
recently she has been promoted. She was the
scrawniest of the lot, and the other hens mauled
her about. Although the entire consignment Whs
purchased from the same farm, one suspected
that the lowly one was victim of a clucking cam-
paign and that her fellows whispered it about
that she was not a genuine product of Rhode
Island but an interloper from far-off Connecti-
cut or Massachusetts. Yet, even in the case of the
outcast, fraternity prevailed as soon as the wind
howled.
I used to peer through the window, and there
was no tendency to bar her out of the cooperative
nightly huddle which is the only central heating
system the coop affords. The fight was off until
up rose the sun and the temperature.
Although the chickens are greedy and wholly
ignorant of table manners, they never go into
open conflict when the corn is served. It is placed
in a circular trough, and I have yet to see any one
of the Rhode Islanders adopt an "after you"
attitude. They rush and jostle in the effort to be
the first at the board. The rooster generally
wins the award. But when he is set he makes
no effort to lash out to the right or left and keep
others from feeding at the same container. The
fact that there is room enough for all is accepted
calmly enough, although never in advance.
Chickens are dumb about economic matters,
and they have to learn this lesson day after day.
At the end of a million years, perhaps, theywill
begin to theorize, and one will say :-"Why need
we run and jostle? Why can't we walk and share
the sustenance without fighting?"
Things which you and I unaerstand perfectly
are difficult of comprehension to a chicken. The
chicken's brain is smaller than that of any col-
umnist. After all, aeons and aeons of time went
by in that slow march during which some giant
lizard from the primeval ooze eventually turned
himself into a syndicated writer. But character
and the personal touch are present among Rhode
Island Reds.
I spoke of the promotion of the underdog. It
happened when the rooster joined the band. He
is at least five pounds heavier than any of the
rest and garbed in a magnificence which should
have made him dictator from the start. But no
sooner was he thrust into the henhouse than the
underdog attacked him savagely. He cowered
and ran. The other hens' were much surprised.

Research
Vs. Teaching
It has long been an accepted edu-
cational theory that a university has
a dual function to discharge-the
fostering of experiment and research,
and the maintenance of high teach-
ing standards Both are vital to the
life of a university, but they are
mutually destructive and impossible
:f fulfillment when it is expected
that one man should combine both
responsibilities.
It is bad enough that such a situa-
tion loads a heavy burden on the
faculty, but when it results in a dilu-
tion of teaching standards, it is in-
tolerable. Although it is not openly
acknowledged, nevertheless it is tacit-
ly recognized that to maintain his
faculty position or win further pro-
motion a professor must write several
books or make some contribution to
research lore. Indeed, such activity
is more oftei the criterion for pro-
motion than classroom ability and
excellence in lecturing. Such a situ-
ation is deplorable.
There are vast differences between
the research type of mind and that
adapted for teaching. The man chief-
ly interested in research, who also
has to teach a class, too often lacks
the personality and the interest in
students indispensable to a good lec-
turer. Hence he resorts to the
"canned" or dictated lecture, skims
through a portion of the required
papers, and relies on a corps of read-
ers to do the rest. On the other hand,
gifted teachers, men with a natural
talent for impressing and stimulat-
ing the student rnind,'are often, fright-
ened away from teaching by a dis-
taste, for doing the research work
necessary to win promotion.
The obvious solution, it seems to
us, is to separate the two functions,
except in the few instances where a
specialized course demands both. Re-
search and teaching can be most ef-
fective if carried on alone, but with
the fruits of the one always avail-
able to meet any needs of the other.
The three months of Summer vaca-
tion could well be utilized for schol-
arly investigation, and the practice
of granting sabbatical leaves could be
extended for the same purpose. In
addition, the university should con-
sider it a part of its social responsibil-
ity to make its libraries and labora-
tories available for the use of com-
petent private researchers.
In some way along these lines, we
believe, the University can eliminate
the intolerable situation wherein a
professor's attention'is so divided be-
tween two functions that he finds it
impossible to do a good job on either
of them. By taking the lead in action
of this kind, Yale might well reas-
sert her position as a pioneer Ameri-
can institution.

A Minority Of One,
When Justice Brandeis retired from
the Supreme Court, the country, as
with one voice, expressed appreciation
for his distinguished services, esteem
for his character, proud affection for
a career of rare unselfishness.
Now, his colleagues, as is their cus-
tom, have paid their tribute. One
name is missing-that of James Clark
McReynolds. In this dissent, Justice
McReynolds is a minority of one in
the court, a minority of one, let us
believe, in the greater court of public
opinion.
