This Is
The Law ...
W ITH THE GRANTING of an injunc-
tion against unconstitutional prac-
tices the redemption of civil liberties in Jersey
City has begun. In a 15,000 word decision handed
down last Thursday Federal Judge William Clark
made a sweeping indictment of the Hague re-
gime, forbidding Hague minions froni excluding
labor organizers, interfering with peaceful pick-
eting, stopping the distribution of union litera-
ture and leaflets and interfering with the consti-
tutional right of free speech which has been
so flagrantly violated in Jersey City.
Answering the section that forbade the ex-
clusion of union organizers, Hague insisted that,
all unionists were "reds" and "aliens" and
therefore liable to deportation. To this dogma
Judge Clark answered with constitutional prin-
"The power of deportation exists in the nation
alone, and can be examined only against aliens.
It is not, therefore, a right pertaining to states,
and much less to cities. Even as to aliens some
sort of hearing has to be held. People cannot be
deported from Jersey City by the fiat of an
administrative officer, police or otherwise.
"Further, the constitutional duty of such an
officer is confined to arrest and conveyance
of his prisoner to a reasonably convenient judi-
cial officer."
Mayor Hague's statement concerning the in-
junction was a simple one, "Our position is exact-
ly the same as it was before the inception of the
suit . . . There shall be no let-up (presumably
in the prosecution of the usual Hague plan) ."
Though Judge Clark's injunction was the
first actually successful step in regaining civil
liberties in Jersey City, it showed a number of
loopholes, the most important of which specifies
the the Mayor may censor the speech of any
speaker that has created a disturbance at previ-
ous appearances in the city. It will be remem-
bered that-the Jersey City Feuhrer is particularly
adept in creating such "disturbances."
Justice hs finally begun her trial of Mayor
Hague. Judge Clark's injunction will be remem-
bered as the starting point in the fight for
human liberties in Jersey City.
This is the law, Mayor Hague.

way department in this state exceeds theamount
collected in the taxes mentioned in the amend-
ment. But there may conceivably come a time
when the State of Michigan will want to spend
more on education than on its, highways. There
may also be emergencies, particularly in welfare,
when funds might be needed at a moment's
notice. An amendment such as this would leave
the hands of the legislature absolutely tied.
So, it seems reasonable this matter should be
kept out of the Constitution and left at the dis-
cretion of the State Legislature.

-by David Lawrence-
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3-With a calmness
which in itself may be an augury of well-defined
opinions about to be expressed by the American
people, the.national election next week will pro-
duce consequences on public policy as well as on
the political future of President Roosevelt and
conspicuous members of the Republican Party.
If the elections show a substantial sweep in
favor of the Republicans, and someone like
Thomas E. Dewey in New York or Robert Taft
in Ohio makes a real showing in votes, the candi-
date for 1940 of the Republican party undoubted-
ly will be picked from such a group of victors.
Likewise, if the Republicans forge ahead, the
supporters of President Roosevelt will feel more
than ever confirmed in their belief that he must
make the race in 1940 for a third term in order
to preserve what they conceive to be a "liberal"
administration with reforms which might be
frustrated by an opposing party in power.
But, supposing the Democrats fail to lose many
seats and the election is interpreted as being
more than a holding of their lines. Would Presi-
dent Roosevelt be as likely a choice? Wouldn't
members of his party who are themselves candi-
dates for 1940 feel that he now should step aside
and give them a chance? Wouldn't there be a
revival of the slogan expressed by Woodrow Wil-
son that "there is no indispensable man"? It
was uttered in Mr. Wilson's speech of acceptance
in 1912 and was aimed at Theodore Roosevelt,
who had been nominated for a third term, though
four years had elapsed since his previous service.
Both Sides Confident
Forecasts of what the after-election attitude of
the political leaders will be are being made now,
but they presuppose a confidence about the gen-
eral nature of the outcome. Inside the Democratic
Party, there is a feeling that the Republicans
will gain more than 25 seats and possibly 50.1
There will be deep disappointment in the Demo-
cratic ranks if the number of Republicans added
to the House exceeds 35, because, in their inner
hearts, the Democrats expect to hold the contest
down to 35 and possibly 25.
As for the Republicans, they will rejoice at
anything over 35 and they really expect an in-
crease of 50 or more in the House.l
The effect on the Republican leaders is going
to be pronounced if the election fails to give
them more than 30 to 40 seats. The argumentI
that was advanced by Republican members of
Congress themselves before the campaign got
under way was that no alternative platforms or
policies were needed and that the Glenn Frank
committee had better postpone its recommenda-
tions for a platform until after the 1938 elctions
were out of the way.
A small but liberal-minded group inside the
Republican Party yielded to such expediency
strategy with reluctance. They had felt that the
wise course was to express a militant Republican-
ism in the form of a progressive platform which
would show the country that already in 1938 the
Republicans were ready to give some indication,
of what they would do with public power if they
were entrusted with it again in both executive
and legislative branches of the government.
G.O.P. Offer No Plan
The present campaign has been fought with
some few exceptions largely on a negative basis.
The philosophy has been that of the traditional
politicians of both parties: "Make the most of
your opponents' mistakes, emphasize those er-
rors, promise in generalities that you will do
mhurch better, but don't give any specific formula
as to how you are going to do it."
The election results next week will reveal how
far this formula is still effective, if at all. If
it proves to have won a considerable number of
seats, a continuation of the anti-Administration
tactics without offering constructive alternatives
will be insisted upon by the political generals of
the Republican Party. If, on the other hand, the
results show that the Republicans haven't made
much of a dent and that their victories here and

there were due largely to stronger personalities
by the Republican nominee than the Democrat,
then the "liberals" in the Republican Party will
more than ever feel that they have been con-
firmed in their contention that a party, to win
power, must do something more than merely
condemn the mistakes of the opposition,
For the foegoing reasons, the so-called off
year election will be of far-reaching significance,
to the future development of affairs and candi-
dacies inside the Republican as well as inside the
Democratic Party. It will be a milestone in politi-
cal history.
itself against communism, socialism and fascism.
The student should make his own choice-and
when he does so, his faith will be much the firmer
in a fairer, more progressive democracy than
nov exists.
If the American Legion and other "patriotic"
groups which often hide their own selfish bigoted
interests under banners of "Americanism" are
truly interested in defending American democ-
racy, they should accept the challenge.

AH, the old order changeth! In
earlier days, a man who wrote -
poetry belonged to the limbo of ec- tl
centrics who wore a monocle, spats s
and cane, and who drank prodigious &
quantities of tea. They were generally t
regarded as pasty-faced weaklings t
who fainted at the sight of blood and o
starved in garrets. But the notion was s
a mistaken one. Francois Villon, for b
example, was a swashbuckling adven-
turer, who tipped a flagon of ale like
a man and consorted with thieves
and murderers. Yet, he could create
a lovely ode of rare quality. The story o
has been told of Villon as he wooed
his maiden one dreamy night. A
jealous rival came along and slashed
the poet across the cheek, then stoode
by admiring his handiwork and ex-a
pecting Villon to cringe behind his f
gal and beg, in treble voice, for mercy.n
But the gallant whipped out a carving
knife instead and whittled an artful
design on the rival's surprised face.
Still enraged, Villon then grabbed a
stone and slung it into his adversary's
direction, downing him for the count
if not for keeps. It was a poignantb
example of what comes from messing1
around with poets.
To build further a defense for whatn
is to follow, there's the legend of
Geoffrey Chaucer, an Englishmanu
who versified a line or two in hisf
lifetime. Chaucer himself was notn
above a ribald yarn or two, as wit-
ness his "Miller's Tale." Moreover,
he was the chief of a band of archersF
for King Edward the 3rd, and oncet
was delayed in transit awhile for aa
modicum of ransom.

In the soapy plea of a mendicant.

Leaves me in a hysterical condi-
My risibilities stir so quick
I even laugh at the air comic. t
I'm a dotard for the witty flip, n
But I can't e'en smile at the comice
Instead, strangely, I know pott
I sometimes feel that I could cry.o

Object of almost every uncomplimentary
phrase in the English language the past summer
was Prof. William Gellermann's recent book
"The American Legion as Educator." Published
for Doctor Gellermann's doctor's thesis by
Columbia university, the survey proclaimed that
the Legion was controlled from the top and not
by the common legionnaire, that by such control
the Legion was incipiently fascistic, and often
unpatriotic in its "Americanism" campaigns.
To these charges such satellites of the Legion
as Col. Theodore Roosevelt and various state
commanders replied that Professor Gellermann
was a communistic jackass; that Prof. George
Counts of Columbia was a communist; that
American universities were becoming hotbeds
of sedition, and that something ought to be
done. Even in Evanston was the Legion thus
