More Blood
For Der Fuehrer .. .
ADOLPH HITLER is going to receive
a Christmas present from the stu-
dents of Dartmouth College. And, if he is lucky,
he will win five dollars besides.
Each student has been asked by "The Dart-
mouth," undergraduate newspaper, to contribute
one penny toward the purchase of human blood.
The money will be used to purchase four vials
of blood, one each of Jewish, Mongolian, Aryan
and Negro. On Christmas morning Hitler wil
receive a neat package. Accompanying it will be
a note pointing out that if Der Feuhrer or any
of his assistants can distinguish which kind of
blood is which, "The Dartmouth" will lessen the
German financial crisis with a contribution of
five dollars.
The Dartmouth chemistry department has
declared that it "is impossible by any knov
scientific means" to distinguish the blood. But
Herr Hitler, secure in his mystic ideology, has
little regard for science. If he cannot wiz the
five dollars any other way, he undoubtedly can
set up a special board which will declare all the
blood "spiritually Aryan." But no matter what
the result, the acute wit of the Dartmouth under-
graduates has put across its point.

Off The Shelf .:--

SINCE THE TIME that Emerson
shocked the academic world with his
plea for thinking men instead of bookworms,
educational reformers have urged that university
students forsake their ivory towers. Student and
faculty groups alike have argued the importance
of the student as a potential citizen and have
attempted to arouse universities from their
By slow steps more and more students have
responded to their efforts. Universities are no
longer regarded as book-lined cells, convenient
places to spend four years completely isolated
from the rest of the world. Tangible evidence
of this comparatively new attitude on the part
of students is afforded by an organization which
has chapters on two hundred campuses through-
out the country--the American Student Union.
This organization, embracing some 30,000 stu-
dents, believes that the student body has a
definite function not only in working for much
needed campus reforms, but studying the world
situation, discussing the manifold problems which
face our present day society, weighing possible
solutions and lending support to those they
deem most worthy. It is without affiliations and
aims at securing as broad and democratic a
representation as possible.
During Christmas vacation, representatives of
the ASU from the leading colleges of the coun-
try will meet in New York City to discuss three
general topics, "The University We Want to
Study In," "The America We Want To Live In,"
and "The World That Will Give Us Peace." Dur-
ing the four day session they will treat subjects
ranging from student self government to the
Munich peace, NYA jobs to the Spanish war.
With the ideas garnered from fellow students
and from the nationally-known figures who will
address them, they will try to formulate policies
which will make the campus "a fortress of dem-
The work that these students will do is im-
portant. More than a large scale bull session, the
convention is a means of instructing youth to
a fuller realization of its place in a changing
world. As such it should win the commendation
of educators who believe it important that a
university train its students to be leaders of
their communities.
President Roosevelt expressed this thought in
a letter of greeting to the ASU convention last
year, when he said, "It is encouraging to find
that there are students sufficiently socially
minded to devote four days of their brief Christ-
mas Holiday to a discussion of our country's
social and economic problems. The schools of ol.r
country, especially the colleges and universities,
are expressions of democracy's interest in youth.
The fact that large groups of students on their
own initiative, are taking up national problems
is evidence that our institutions of learning are
getting results."

Gaines Decision
In a 6-to-2 decision, the United States Supreme
Court holds that Lloyd L. Gaines, a Negro, is
entitled under the fourteenth amendment to a
legal education in Missouri equivalent to that
provided for white students, and that his exclu-
sion from the law school of the University of
Missouri because he is a Negro is a violation of
the provision of the Constitution forbidding a
state to "deny to any person within its jurisdic-
tion the equal protection of the laws." Chief
Justice Hughes wrote the opinion. Justices M-
Reynolds and Butler dissented.,
Gaines is a graduate of Lincoln University, a
school of higher education maintained by Mis-
souri for Negroes. Although the act creating Lin-
coln University authorizes development of the
school to provide the same opportunities as those
at the University of Missouri, no law school has
ever been established there. To remedy this de-
ficiency, the State offers to pay the tutition of
Negroes desiring a legal education at universities
in other states
Gaines did not apply for such tuition, but in-
stead decided to institute a test case. He applied
for a writ of mandamus to compel the university
to admit him. The writ was denied in Circuit
Court and the judgment was affirmed by the
unanimous decision of the Missouri Supreme

Court. That court, in an opinion by the late
Judge Frank, based its affirmation on the ground
that public policy in Missouri has been to segre-
gate the white and Negro races for educational
purposes. It held that, by offering to pay the
tuittion of Gaines elswhere, the State had ob-
served the principle of equivalent opportunities.
In' its decision, the Missouri Supreme Court
naturally gave heavy emphasis to Missouri's
Constitution and laws as the expression of pub-
lic policy.
The United States Supreme Court brusied
aside the more realistic approach of the Missouri
Supreme Court, deciding the issue on a basis of
pure logic, and since the court of last resort has
spoken, there is nothing for the State to do but
open the University of Missouri to Negroes who
apply for law degrees or to provide a law school
at Lincoln University.I

In Democracy
President Roosevelt in his speech at Chapel
Hill, North Carolina, quoted an unnamed friend
as observing that the youth of America
feel they are "going places." This was a way of
saying the Nation was keeping up with the im-
plications of Justice Cardozo's remark, "We live
in a world of change . . There is change wheth-
er we will it or not."

-by David Lawrence-
WASHINGTON, Dec. 13-Both

and Mrs. Roosevelt, by their action this week,
have removed from criticism their respective
activities in connection with the sale of books
or the making or radio speeches on so-called
commercial programs.
Mr. Roosevelt revealed that all money from the
sale of his books will go toward a specific public
purpose-the building of a library on his estate
at Hyde Park Which the Federal Government it-
self is to become the owner. The President's wife
revealed that she had decided to ignore a treasury
ruling of a few years ago whereby she did not'
pay taxes on earnings from her speeches, lec-
tures, etc.
Mrs. Roosevelt herself never intended either
to evade or avoid the payment of her taxes. In
fact, she went to the treasury in advance with.
her proposed contract for public speaking to learn"
if she had to pay taxes. A kindly official made a
ruling which was subject to public criticism be
cause it was at variance with other rulings. The
decision of Mrs. Roosevelt to ignore it is a
splendid example of civic honor and of an un-
willingness to accept special privilege, even when
profferred her in technically approved form.
Considerable Discussion
The incident came in for considerable discus-
sion among tax experts, who pointed out that
only a certain percentage of one's income can
be given to charity without paying taxes. The
net result of the new plan to be adopted by
Mrs. Roosevelt is that the government will get
more out of her earnings and she will have a free
hand to dispose of less of her income than she
did before.
This, however, is the plight of many a persoi
in the upper brackets who wants to donate
'money to charitable institutions. The govern-
ment nowadays steps in and takes its share
for its own purposes first and reduces the bal-
ance that can be given away by the taxpayer.
Indeed, over and above a certain per cent allow-
able for charity, the government at present im-
poses a gift tax, too, so, all in all, charitably in-
clined persons have less and less to say about
what happens to their income.
As for the President, the controversy which
arose in connection with the sale of his books
and the data of press conferences turned on the
fact that no'disclosure of purpose for the use of
the proceeds was made, and only after the,
President's action was criticized was it officially
announced that some public purpose was in the
President's mind, and that he did not expect
to profit by the transactions. Close friends have
known for some time about the President's desire
to have erected at Hyde Park a building to house
his official and private papers for the benefit of
students of history. Just how much will be avail-
able for this object will depend again on how
much the President has left after paying income
taxes. Doubtless it will be necessary for the
library project to be incorporated in some legal
manner in order that the President might make
a gift to the institution he has in mind.
No Details
The public, however, will not be concerned with
details since now all has been made plain con-
cerning the sale of books to the public by tlk
President relating to official proceedings of the
government of which he has a part. The implica-
tion which was widespread for a brief interval
and which this correspondent took occasion to
help nullify as soon as the President revealed
that he would give the proceeds to a public pur-
pose has unquestionably remained to some ex-
tent, but now will be cleared up because of
the detailed announcement of the President's
There always will remain subject to debate
the question of whether any President or any
member of his family should engage in any
business transactions involving the sale to the
public of particular commodities-either books
or services-because many Americans feel that
the prestige of the White House should not be
associated with anything that is sold to the
public. espeially when radio sponsors who com-
pete with other companies get financial benefits
by employing members of the President's en-
tourage. But, however opinions may differ on
this point, the all-important fact remains that
neither the President nor Mrs. Roosevelt is to
profit personally by any of these activities, so
there cannot be the slightest blemish on their
respective records of official or personal integrity.

HARRY "Diogenes" Kelsey, whose
father is the Detroit News' "Com-
mentator." was enroute from his city
beat one day last week, empty-hand-
ed and preoccupied as usual with
nothing, when he was hailed at the
corner of Liberty and Fifth-one block
east of the Pretzel Bell-by a young
fellow who looked and dressed like
a student. "Say, buddy," the stranger
inquired, "could you tell me where a
fellow could get a glass of beer in this
town?" Kelsey was so flabbergasted
for a spare moment at the thought of
some Michigan man not knowing
where the amber is dispensed that he
gaped at this unnatural specimen. It
was inconceivable to the young Daily
reporter, who has matured in the
tradition that beer taverns were as
necessary an adjunct to a well-round-
ed education as Angell Hall. Con-
vinced finally that the lad was not a
gagster, but honestly thirsty, Kelsey
directed him to an oasis, and resumed
his journey, preoccupied now with the
idea that maybe some people were
here for an unadulterated education.

OCCUPANTS of Rooms 7 and 7A
at the Health Service whiled
away a few hours the other day com-
posing the following ode:
(Or why I don't keep my mouth open
all the time.)
I think that I shall never see
A tube as bothersome as thee;
You enter the cavern of my mouth
Like a north bound train going south.
You come around ten times a day
The numbers on you do portray
The rise and fall of body heat,
-'Tisn't always right, perhaps we
Ninety-eight-six doth make me glad
Above a century makes me sad,
One hundred-three creates a thirst,
Over this number I'm apt to burst.
Yu pulse-feelers and thermometer-
You graduate nurses and trouble-
Kennedy, Maybaum, Thompson and
Take back your tubes and set me free.
When the trumpets blow their final
Andthings are set aright at last,
These tubes in nurses' months will
I hope that you can stand the test.

paid by the members of the association. There
will be no interference by the association in any
medical matters; the aim is to leave the doctor-
patient relationship as before. The doctor is
merely placed on a. salary basis, instead of be-

Equal security will be offered, it is hoped, to
all members of the organization. Sickness will
not be followed by debt, and the worry of the en-
suing doctor bill need not add a mental hazard
to aggravate the patient's physical ills.
The plan will assure members of a great meas-
ure of preventive medical care in that they will
be free to seek early advice instead of allowing
their ills to become critical. Naturally this
means more frequent consultations and exami-
nations. Consequently the doctor will be ex-
pected, as far as is humanly possible, to keep
his patients in good health, as well as to cure
their ills.
The importance of this local step can be
readily seen when it is placed against the back-
ground of our present system of medical care
throughout the nation. Thirty-eight per cent of
our people receive no medical aid even when they
are incapacitated. Less than three per cent of
