THE RECENT MOVE of the English
Air Raid Precautions authorities to
equip all civilians with gas masks has had some
rather startling and unexpected results.
First, it seems that bearded Englishmen will
soon be a thing of the past,'since hoary growths
have proved very cumbersome in attaching the
gas mask. For the new masks give the enmeshed
chins just about an inch and a half in which
to move about freely, which practically means
a merciless razor to any home-loving beard.
This is because the snout of the civilian respir-
ator is a three-inch-deep container through
which gas is filtered. After that there remains
only one and one half inches between the point
of the chin and the top of the container. All of
which should make arborescence for the male
Then there is the matter of the female coif-
feur. Loud and vehement protest has been voiced
by Jenny Atkins who no longer can wear her
hair in a bun or in the new Edwardian fashion,
with curls piled high on the head.
And so the special "Gas Mask Wave" should
soon be very popular. Newspapers will probably
run such ads as:
If its peace we want today,
Then we must all lend a hand;
Fix our hair the "gas mask way"
And be a pride to all the land.
Eyelashes, too, will have to be restrained a bit,
lest they interfere with the new head coverings.
Wearing horn-rimmed 'spectacles will be vir-
tual suicide and a mustahe just about treason.
After that, British geneticists will probably
devise a new scheme whereby special "gas-mask-
shaped" heads may be propagated to insure long
life for posterity.
W t Unity?* *
T HE PRESENT convention of the
American Federation of Labor has
achieved a new high point inreactionary conduct
by the leaders of that organization. The climax
was reached Wednesday when the resolutions
committee, dominated by Matthew Woll, long
notorious for his die-hard attitude toward the
C.I.o,, returned a report attacking the New
Deal and terming governm ent activities in the
sphere of labor "socialism." Previous reports call-
ing for the revision of the Wagner Act and the
wage-hour law had been approved during the
week, but this frontal attack on the Roosevelt
Administration was too much for the convention
to swallow, and the report was rejected.
The A.F.L. remains on record, however, as
condemning the National Labor Relations Board
as a tool of the CI.O., although the survey of
the Board's record by Fortune Magazine which
appeared almost coincidentally with the A.F.L.
attack made the Federation look a little silly.
Fortune. which certainly has no reason to lend
-- r..ii it- . inml11(Ys. demnstatedta
worn-out excuse that the divided labor move-
merit could never be rewelded until his personal
nemesis, John L. Lewis, was removed from the
picture. Lewis promptly called Green's bluff by
offering to resign if Green would do the same,
whereupon the A.F.L. chief backed down, claim-
ing Lewis was insincere in his offer, was making
a play to the gallery, would continue to direct
the C.I.O. from behind the scenes, etc. Anyway
Green wasn't going to resign even if Lewis did.
Last year when Lewis offered, from the C.I.O.
convention at Atlantic City, to march the C.I.O.
into the A.F.L. "horse, foot and dragoon," Green
hedged, demanding that the C.I.O. unions come
back to the Federation a few at a time, giving
the senior organization time t digest them.
What Green is obviously afraid of is that if
the two great labor bodies settled their differ-
ences and united, his day and the day of his
clique as a dominant factor in American labor
would be over. The A.F.L. today numbers 5,000,000
members, according to its own figures, exceeding
by a considerable margin the strength of the
C.I.0. In spite of this numerical superiority,
Green is justified in regarding with decided
qualms a convention embracing both labor
factions, for there is undoubtedly a strong ele-
ment within the A.F.L. which would be likely
to back a move for more progressive leadership.
The interests of Green and his lieutenants are
not all that are keeping the A.F.L. and C.I.O.
apart. The question of craft versus industrial
unionism undoubtedly divides the rank and file;
yet this problem, technically difficult though it
may be, is by no means insoluble. Neither Green
nor Lewis pretends for an instant that it is. The
real trouble lies in the personality of the leader-
ship, and as Green himself has said, it is likely
that unity will be impossible until the leader-
ship itself is changed. But in hunting candidates
for the job of resigning offices to help the cause
of labor, Green can look nearer home.
The Vassar Pact
INCE THE UNITED Peace Committee
3J has decided to consider the Vassar
Peace Pact as a possible working program, thus,
bringing the pact to attention on campus, it
might be a good idea for us all to have a look
Especially notable, and perhaps most impor-
tant, is the first Article: "We swear to develop
a spirit of fraternity and collaboration between
the youth of all nations, to help unite the
youth of our own nations and to work for unity
with young people of all other countries without
distinction of race, creed or opinion."
Today's youth is tomorrow's voter in peace
time, gun fodder in war time. The adolescent
minds of today will be the ruling minds of to-
morrow. If today's youth will accept toleration
of race, creed and opinion as the best policy, the
same will be the world's policy tomorrow.
This can only be brought about through organ-
ization. At the World Youth Conference at
Vassar, representatives of the youth of 53 nations
met in an attempt for world youth organization,
with the Peace Pact as one of the more important
material results of the meeting.
It is to be hoped that the young men and
women who drew up this pact will not, in
future years, change their minds as to the
value of the pledges they made at Vassar. It
is to be hoped that, through discussion of the
Pact throughout the world, as the United States
Peace Committee intends to do, the principle of
tolerance will be spread beyond the World Youth

To the Editor:
Health Service! Health did I say? Morgue. I
mean. Service did I say?-Health Service where
you can get medical neglect free!
A student suddenly stricken Sunday with acute
pain in his back, was delivered at Health Service
on a stretcher.
SUNDAY-An exact examination of his tempera-
ture revealed fever; decided to raise
It is a little startling to read that the freshman
class at Princeton voted for Neville Chamberlain
as "the greatest living person." And, to make it
worse, the news report adds
that Hitler lost by a nose,
trailing the statesman with
the umbrella by but a single
It is possible, of course,
that no accolade of admira-
tion went with the laurels.
Indeed, almost half' the
members of the Tiger elec-
torate expressed some doubt as to the mental ad-
justment of the German chief. And, even so, one
cannot escape the impression that the sad young
men of New Jersey are deeply mired in defeatism
at the moment.
According to scouts who have visited other
members of the Ivy League, despair is also preva-
lent in Cambridge and New Haven. The frosty
fingers of Fascism have touched the scions of the
ruling classes along the Atlantic seaboard. This
is hardly a healthy sign, but it need not be
stressed too hard, for that tired feeling of nega-
tion may well be transitory. Other generations of
college men have said, "There is no hope," and
lived to shake off this pessimism along with
mumps and measles.

The Scare Might Explain It
Perhaps the whole thing is a symptom of
nothing more than the waning year and the
color of the football season along the yards and
campuses of the universities which once com-
posed what were known as "The Big Three." It
might be pertinent to point out that a com-
posite score drawn from the games of last Satur-
day would read:-Yale, Harvard and Princeton,
0; opponents, 63.
I doubt that any single afternoon on the grid-
iron within the memory of living man has been
so poisonous to the Ivy Trio. Later on these teams
will meet each other, and on those occasions it
will be impossible for each to lose simultaneous-
ly. The stimulus of a few touchdowns, even if
scored merely against the Elis, may bring the
roses back to the cheeks of the Princeton gradu-
Life must be better than a succession of mourn-
ful Munichs, and the sad young men will not
forever bow down in the House of Hitler. Yet
there is no getting away from the fact that
democracy stands in need of new dedication. I
doubt that it will come from any of the spokes-
men on the extreme right.

Apologists For The Nazi Creed
The very men who have been most passionate
in announcing their devotion to "free institu-
tions" have in many cases become apologists for
the Nazi creed. Some who have asserted that
their opposition to Roosevelt was engendered by
their fear that he was dictatorially minded open-
ly express admiration for both Mussolini and the
Fuehrer. Apparently it all depends upon whose
trains are made to run on time.
Surely our institutions of higher learning
should educate their students in precise and
accurate definition of "great" and "greatness."
Obviously historians of a future day will give
full space to the phenomenon which is symbol-
ized by the name of Hitler.
But when the accounts are checked up he will
not be numbered- among those whose memory is
revered by mankind. It will go ill with us if our
young men cease to see visions and dream dreams.
The universities of the world by brave tradition
have been the citadels which kept alive the fires
of aspiration in all the darkest days of civiliza-
Our own American colleges qre a heritage
from ancestors who did not take the rights of
free men lightly. They did not quit when foe-
men of reaction pressed them closely. Now is the
time to hear from the Bowl to Soldiers' Field and
"Mold 'em, Yale!" and "Hold 'em Harvard!"
also, what's the matter with the swift return
from the judgment of Tiger cubs to the faith
and the tradition of a more primitive Princeton?

To the Editor:
A joyous morsel of news has just been called to
my atention. And I am just busting to spread this
ravishing report from the Carillon tower to the
court house dome and back.
At long last Utopia has been achieved! Two
brand new paradises have been created in Ann
Arbor ! The German-American restaurant on
Williams street and the Subway Lunch Counter
on North University Avenue have instituted a
clever little policy which is expected to double
or even triple an already prosperous trtde. These
two bits of drooling heaven do not cater to
Negroes anymore! Now you and any of your
friends may sit down in a seventh "heaven and
enjoy a delicious meal to your heart's content
without seeing one-no, not even one Negro
unless, of course you happen to look out the win-
dow and accidently see one of the creatures shuf-
fling along the street.
Many complaints were made to the respective
managements, about their abominable and care-
less practice in serving Negroes. Hence, the
managements have informed very politely any
hapless Negroes that their dusky faces are np
longer desired around anymore. So, guide your
dainty steps to where you may eat in a complete.

THE OTHER night we encountered
again that rare bit of whimsical
nonsense, which reads:
Yesterday upon the stair,
I saw a man who wasn't there;
He wasn't there again today,
My God, I wish he'd go away,
It recalled to mind the story of
the slightly inebriated motorist and
his equally plastered companion. They
were driving along when the driver
dozed off and ran into a curb. No
damage was done, but the jolt aroused
the companion, who inquired as to
their whereabouts. "I don't know,"
the driver replied feebly, "but if you're
sleepy, I'll drive."
PROF. ART VAN DUREN dreamt
the other night that Michigan
would beat Minnesota, 20 to 0. Nor-
mally skeptical of such intangible por-
tents as a dream, the professor
visioned the game so clearly that he
was sorely tempted to lay a wager
perhaps. He saw Norm Purucker in-
tercept a Gopher pass to score a
touchdown; he watched the Wolverine
line repulse a Viking charge within
the shadows of the goal. But when,
late in the fourth quarter, he saw one
of his colleagues in the German de-
partment, an elderly gent with hardly
a bent for strenuous athletics, inter-
cept a pass and run 50 yards for an-
other score, he was immediately in-
