The editorials published in The Michigan

staff and represent the views of the writers
M R. DAVID Lawrence, new Daily
columnist, shed some crocodile tears
the other day over Presiaent Roosevelt's apparent
failure to carry out his pledge to support liberal
Republicans who are running for office this fall
against conservative Democrats. Instead of con-
sistently aiding liberal candidates regardless of
party affiliation, Mr. Lawrence remarked regret-
fully, the President has not only given no indica-
tion of doing anything of the sort but has even
indorsed Mr. Parley's announced project for
November of supporting all Democrats running
for office, conservative and liberal alike.
Even Mr. Lawrence could hardly expect Mr.
Parley to support Republican candidates in his
capacity as Democratic campaign manager, al-
though he seems to regard the Farley intentions
as a sort of breach of Presidential faith, inasmuch
as Mr. Parley is acting under Mr. Roosevelt's
orders. What Mr. Lawrence wants to know, how-
ever, is what about placing the White House
personal stamp of approval on liberal G.O.P.
candidates? "The problem that Mr. Roosevelt
faces," the columnist asserts, "is one of continu-
ing challenge as to political sincerity ... Now that
the primaries are over, some of these same
(Democratic) conservatives who have won the
party nominations are running for election.
Silence now by the President is - bound to be
construed as meaning that perhaps Mr. Roose-
,elt really didn't have any principle at all in his
Mr. Lawrence overlooks the one flaw in this
sort of argument, i.e., that it is predicated upon
the thesis that there is such a thing as a liberal
republican, and further that there are some of
them, or even one of them, running for office
somewhere. To avoid quibbling about terms, let it
be understood that we use the word "liberal" in
Mr. Roosevelt's sense; that is, a New Dealer.
This seems perfectly fair in the present argument,
since Mr. Roosevelt's sincerity, not his definition,
Is at question. We recall a liberal Republican,
George Norris, who supported Roosevelt in 1932,
consequently found himself persona no longer
grata in G.O.P. circles, and is now listed as Inde-
pendent, Neb., by the wire services and Radical,
Seb., by the Chicago Tribune. We recollect an-
other liberal Republican who cropped up here in
Michigan in the 1936 campaign. His name was
James Couzens, he was a U.S. Senator of many
years' service to his party and his country and
la philanthropist whose benefactions are scattered
throughout the state. But he committed the
crime, fatal in a Republican office-seeker, of
supporting the New Deal. The enraged astonish-
ment of Republican leaders in Michigan was
voiced in the most eloquent language; one of them
in particular spoke of "the spectacle of a candi-
date for office on the Republican ticket openly
supporting the New Deal." He was quite right;
It was a spectacle indeed, and a rare one. Senator
Couzens waged a strong battle in the primary,
but was unable to cope with the strength of t
party machine, losing the nomination to f rmer
Governor Brucker, a man who could be coted
on by the G.O.P. leadership to stay in the reac-
tionary camp while breath remained in his
body. Lest anyone suppose Brucker was the
people's choice in any way, let it be recalled he
and the boys wouldn't have let stch a thing slip
by. They couldn't look the Chamber of Com-
merce in the face if they had.
'Inalienable Rights' ...
THERE REMAINS little unsaid in be-
half of Tom Mooney. Others have
countless times engraved in deep furrows the
wretched fate of this man on the conscience of
America. Others have wet more agile pens in
Mooney's tears of despair and poured forth the
unmitigated wrong in pelting phrases far above
our power to add or detract.
Twenty-two years the vast injustice has en-
dured, thrusting its ugly shadows into the eyes
of America. Twenty-two years of lawyers, judges,
governors, courts, trials, appeals and petitions.
Never were more contrivances of law employed.
Never has more immobility resulted.
And now the Supreme Tribunal, the full-
throated protests of the land notwithstanding,
chooses to turn away its face. Tom Mooney con-
tinues his vigil in San Quentin-an innocent
victim bereft of his constitutional guarantees.
Tested evidence of perjured testimony, unfair
trials and prejudiced juries count for nought. The
Supreme Court will not be dissuaded, or better
the Supreme Court, with the exception of Justices
Black and Reed will not be dissuaded.
"The Supreme Court-preserver of the Consti-
tution-guardian of our liberties-greatest of all
tribunals-" are the stirring memorial words en-
graved over an arch on the northwest corner of,
the Law Quadrangle. Empty phrases these, after
a decision such as the majority seven delivered in
the Mooney appeal.
So again we leave Tom Mooney in the grim
vale of Sacco and Vanzetti and Angelo Hern-
don and Eugene Debs and Haywood Patterson
with countless other ghosts of innocent men.

Blames Capitalists For Hitler
To the Editor:
With so much discussion about war and the
threat of Hitler, it might be well to re-examine
some of our opinions on the subject. The first
thing to realize is that Hitler's glands are not
the cause of any possible war. All societies have
pathological people. Societies that are econom-
ically sound put their pathological specimens in
institutions, or let the ones who talk more con-
vincingly about the "spirits" join the clergy.
Only a social system that has reached the point
where it can no longer provide work for th
millions of unemployed and fears that the un-
employed will rise up and take over the factories
is willing to support a madman like Hitler.
Two internal forces are compelling Hitler to
expand Germany: (1) German capitalists give
the workers so little in return for what they pro-
duce that the workers cannot buy back what the
capitalist 'employers offer for sale. Hence new,
markets must be sought-in Austria, in Cgecho-
slovakia, or in "colonies." But such expansion is
no solution of the problem which faces German
capitalists: in order for the peoples in the
newly acquired lands to buy the products of
Germany proper, Germany proper must buy
back products from these newly acquired regions;
but, of course, tpe German people have not the
purchasing power to buy what is produced in
Germany, let alone what is produced outside
Germany. When the new markets don't bring
expected returns, German capitalism under the
guise of Hitler's fascism madly grabs still more
new territory hoping unreasonably to force the
(2) The standard of living of the German
workers is steadily going down under fascism.
From Hitler's point of view it is absolutely neces-
sary to keep the people dazzled and blinded by a
brilliant foreign policy - "Deutschland uber
alles." So long as Hitler continues to add terri-
tory to Germany the people may continue to
submit to seeing their living standards pushe
down so that the war machine may be built up
to guarantee profits for German capitalists.
The question arises: just what can we in
America do to stop this expanding fascism?
We must stop the two forces operating within
Germany: (1) We must weaken the German
capitalist for whose sole benefit Hitler is forcing
expansion. (2) We must weaken the belief among
the German people that fascism is the salvation
How are these two things to be accomplished?
Boycott German goods through legislation such
as the O'Connell bill, thus weakening German
capitalism, and as a corollary, weakening theF
fascist government. Weakening the government
will result in a further lowering of the standard
of living, until a point is reached where the
"German people no longer feel anything but dis-
gust for fascism, and will refuse to fight its wars
and support its capitalists.
The Last Straw
To the Editor:
It's tough enough, isn't it boys, to have to sit
back quietly while useless things like points-after-
touchdowns and a Congressman from Texas are
raising hell; but when you glance at the Associat-
ed Press football poll of a Monday-
And see Michigan not rated in THE FIRST TEN--
Well, sir, I can only say,
My goodness me.
-'Guy M. Whipple, Jr., '35-'36-Ex.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 19-Issues of far-reach-
ing importance to labor relations have just been
settled by the Illinois Supreme Court and as a
consequence 37 persons who particpated in a "sit-
down" strike must pay the penalty in jail and
with fines of varying sums.
What makes the case of national interest is that
the state of Illinois has just done what the state
of Michigan neglected to do two years ago-it has
enforced its penalties against those who defied
court orders. Likewise the state of Illinois by the
action of its highest court has maintained juris-
diction over "sit down" strikers in contradiction
of the National Labor Relations Board.
For, it will be recalled, the Labor Board ordered
reinstated these very "sit down" strikers. The
employer-the Fansteel Metalurgical Corporation
of Chicago-insisted that the men could not be
reinstated because they had destroyed private
property and that their union activities as such
had nothing to do with the matter. The Circuit
Court of Appeals of the Seventh Circuit has up-
held the employer's contention but 'the Labor
Board in the next few days will petition the
Supreme Court of the United States for a review
of the reinstatement issue.
The case in the federal courts however has
nothing to do really with the problem of prevent-
ing the strikers from going to jail under- Illinois
law. The latter would have to ask the Supreme
Court on their own behalf now to stay the sen-
tence of the Illinois courts but the chances of
such a stay being granted might be considered
remote because the legal questions involved are
well settled, that is the right of the state to police
the behavior of its citizens is widely recognized.
State Police Power Invoked
The Labor Board incidentally in seeking with-
out success the reinstatement of the strikers told
the circuit court of appeals that the state courts
had ample power to deal with police questions
and that employers had their remedies available
to them in state courts. Now such remedies have
been availed of and the Fansteel Company can-
not very well reinstate men who have been
ordered to serve terms in jail. The Labor Board
might argue that after they came out of jail
they should be given their old jobs back but such
an ordr could be enforced only if the Supreme
Court of the United States should reverse the
Circuit Court of Appeals. Here again the legal
question has been pretty well settled in the past,
that is the right of discharge has been upheld in
several cases by the Supreme Court of the United
States. In this instance the company contends
that it lost upwards of $60,000 through destruc-
tion of property and cancellation of certain
orders for goods. Indeed, the way now has been
opened for the fining of treble damage suits by
the Fansteel Company against the unions on the
ground that the Sherman Anti Trust Laws have
been violated and also for diamage suits against
individual members of the unions and the union
This procedure doubtless will be followed out
in order to prevent the further use of the "sit
down" strike in America. Too many union men
unfortunately have been given the impression
that a "sit down" strike is lawful and that they
can somehow get the matter before the Labor
Board and escape penalty.
The Fansteel Company's contention has been
that the "sit down" strikers were guilty of tres-
pass and by violating the laws of Illinois had no
standing before the Labor Board. Thelatter, on
the other hand, has argued that the federal juris-
diction of the Wagner Act superseded all other
considerations where a company engages in inter-
state commerce. The Circuit Court of Appeals
disagreed with the Labor Board.
Up To Supreme Court
If the Supreme Court now denies the petition
to review, then the matter will rest on the Circuit
Court of Appeal decision but if the case comes up
for review and the Labor Board is upheld then
the federal power of policing industrial disputes
will have been recognized as absolute. In that
event there would be much more point than here-
tofore to the contentions of organizations like the
National Association of Manufacturers that the
Wagner Act can and should be amended to pro-
hibit "coercion from any source" and to ban "sit
down" strikes on the ground that state laws are
The whole episode' which has just come to a
climax began in February, 1937, when strikers
seized the Fansteel Plant. The local judge ordered
the men to vacate the property. They refused.
The case was transferred to another section of
the state on the application of the workers but
the judge gain ruled against the "sit down"
strikers who lost in the Appellate Court and now
the Illinois Supreme Court has upheld the
judgment of the lower courts. The 39 defend-
ants who have been out on bail pending appeals
will now have to serve jail sentences, running
from four months to a year and in some instances
pay fines unless by some technical ruling not now
foreseen the Supreme Court of the United States
agrees to look into the case.
vehemence, for we strive to be as liberal to others
as we wish others to be in their relations with
us. I think it was Voltaire, writing in the Eigh-
teenth century, who said: "I may not agree with
what you say, but I will defend to the death your
right to say it." That is our tolerant attitude
toward "a good little Boy Scout." We do not agree
with what he says, of course we don't; but it was
his privilege to say it.
We would, however, like to say to "Boy
Scout" that we are a bit hurt that there should
be at our Alma Mater such a benighted and in-,
fantile mind. The idea of tolerance is a product
of the Eighteenth Century; the scientific view-

TO YALE FOR FOUR BITS
In case it looks like you are going to
be stuck in Ann Arbor over the week
end, while everyone else is junketing
to New Haven to watch Michigan
clean Yale and then let New York
City clean them, here is a suggestion
which, although it may be a long shot,
likewise may get you to Yale for the
small sum of fifty cents, the half
part of a 'buck.
Over at the Alpha Delt and Pi
Lambdi Phi tongs, the boys are get-
ting together and throwing fifty cents
apiece into a kitty. Everyone receives
a number and a duplicate is placed in
the old well known hat. A number will
be drawn by some party, preferably
disinterested, and the winner takes

other shirt and sets out to have a

at the Cass last Saturday. I sat
through it in such good grace as I
could muster and I can not make any
real criticism of the acting, that be-
ing about the second stage produc-
tion I have ever witnessed. But I do
feel eminently qualified to comment
on the swearing. I say it wasn't so hot.
It did not have the feeling, those
little nuances, so necessary to really
bigtime blasphemy. Francis Farmer

looked like she had any real talent.
