NIGHT EDrrOR: ETHEL Q. NORBERG
The editorials published in The Michigan
Daily are written by members of the Daily

Jusfice Where
ustice Is Due .,.
O RCHIDS for the most vicious propa-
gandistic writing of the day go not,
as usual, to Nazi Goebbels but to an anonymous
American journalist writing about a fellow-
American. The article, "To Hell With Lind-
bergh," appears in a picture magazine just
issued.
Nothing turned out by the champions of totali-
tarianism can surpass this for unadulterated
emotionalism, for uncompromisingly portraying
only the seamy side of a man's character. This
is American yellow journalism at its yellowest.
Fostered by Lindbergh's acceptance of a Nazi
swastika, the article and the pictures that accom-'
pany it present to the American public a con-
glomeration of purportedly true facts designed
to blacken every important event in the flyer's
life. Because his recent actions have been viewed
unfavorably, it is now revealed that his famous
flight, his parental relations, his marriage, have
their unpleasant details. No more complete
assortment of insidious gossip was ever whispered
at an old maid's convention.
To damn Lindbergh as a btrayer of demo-
cracy, to brand him with the same tools of propa-
ganda usually reserved for the Nazis, however,
transcends the limits of mere gossip. The photo
magazine, attempting to be bold in its fomenting
Of what it terms Americanism, has become more
scurrilous than courageous.
There is a stand to be taken against Lindbergh.
Undoubtedly his acceptance of the German swas-
lika must b censured. Even though he has been
absent from America during the most rapid
growth of the anti-Nazi spirit, he should realize
that intimate hobnobbing with figures like Goer-
ng and Goebbels can merit only hostility from
his countrymen. His ill-advised attack on the
Russian air force and his declaration that the
German squadrons are superior to the combined
forces of Russia, France and Great Britain could
make the Nazi presentation seem little more than,
V reward for services rendered.
It is probable that, the Lindbergh we have
stereotyped in our minds was largely a myth, a
reation of mass enthusiasm. Now the myth is
being dispelled because Lindbergh does not,
probably cannot, live up to it. But to condemn
verything he has done, every triumph in his
bast, on some present pretext, is analagous t.
ondemning a movie actor because he does not
Barry over his acting into real life. To attempt to
aunch a hysterical crusade of complete exter-
nination of all that Lindbergh has achieved is
in affront to average American intelligence. One
annot forget that Lindbergh has increased as
nuch as anyone during the last decade the
nationalistic ego, the "Americanism" that the
hoto magazine seeks so ardently to foster.
The picture magazine, however, cannot be held
.ntirely to blame for such cheap propaganda. It
s simply going one step farther than the library
Which banned Anne Morrow Lindbergh's books.
.t is merely doing its bit toward crystallizing in
he American mind a bigotry reminiscent of the
Oiddle Ages.

By WILLIAM J. LICHTENWANGER
OF THE numerous releases with which RCA
Victor greeted its rapidly widening public at
Christmas time, probably those of the greatest
popular interest are two albums issued in obeis-
ance to the current idol, Wagner. One album
(VM-508, $9.00) contains the new revised version
of Stokowski's "Symphonic Synthesis" of Tristan
and Isolde, played of course by the Philadelphia
Orchestra with the redoubtable Leopold at its
helm. The other (VM-516, $4.50) is a two-record
affair with three sides drawn from Parsifal and
one from Lohengrin, Lauritz Melchior singing
and the Philadelphia Orchestra again doing the
honors, this time under Eugene Ormandy's direc-
tion.
It has been five years now since Mr. Stokowski
first pieced together his virtual symphonic poem
from the music of Wagner's Tristan. Since that
time, through the enlightening genius of one
Kirsten Flagstad, Wagner has risen in this coun-
try from the status of just another German opera
composer to the position of god both of opera
and concert, and thus the Stokowski set will now
undoubtedly have a much wider appeal than
when its predecessor first appeared. Also, in the
meantime, the energetic Leopold has performed
similar feats of surgery upon other music dramas
-Rheingold, Parsifal, Boris Godounov-, and
evidently saw his earlier work a little differently
in the light of later experience.
Wagner Critics Object
Frankly, we prefer the first version, which ad-
heres more nearly to the sequence of the music
in the original. Some critics, of course, puristic-
ally raise their eyes in horror at this "butchery"
of Wagner's score. With this unnecessarily strict
and conservative viewpoint we disagree. Grant, as
we must today in spite of violent grave-turning
on the composer's part, that Wagner is vital to
the concert hall as well as to the theater, and,
too, that the force of his music is many times
impeded by outmoded and extraneous consider-
ations of philosophy and drama-then it must
also be admitted that it is far more sensible to
adapt his music to new age and new environment
than to suffer it gradually to succumb intact to
the ever-changing demands of musical progress.
There is much worthy music in the operas of
the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that is
lost to us today because we do not care for the
dramatic inanities upon which it is based and,
wanting whole hog or nothing, get nothing. Cer-
tainly what Stokowski does to Wagner's Tristan
is no different in principle from what Wagner
himself did in the case of his miniature symphon-
ic poem, the Siegfried Idyll, constructed largely
out of music from the Ring.
No, the important thing is not whether the
composer is adhered to literally, but whether his
music aghieves an equal and corresponding,
though not identical, effect in "synthesization"
to that of its original form. In respect to Stokow-
ski's new Tristan Synthesis, we feel that in some
ways this goal is achieved admirably. In one great
point, however, the effect of Wagner's music is
distorted and lessened. As in the first version,
Stokowski bases his symphonic poem principally
upon the Prelude, the Love Duet from the Second
Act, and the Liebestod with which the music
drama closes. Here, however, the brief passages
Turbulent
Germany ..
N A RECENT editorial, "Germany's
Fourth Front," we offered evidence
that all was not well in the state of Germany,
and therefore in the event of a war there would
ie strong likelihood of the overthrow of Hitler.
We have since discovered! that there is a wide-
spread contrary feeling that refuses to grant the
basic premise which we felt was almost obvious. A
recent letter to the editor crystallized this phil-
osophy in maintaining that Chancellor Hitler is
not only well-entrenched among the German
people, but that he has done so much for them
that his "few wrong moves" are to be overlooked.
The letter revealed that the economic condi-
tions in Germany are fine, unemployment has
disappeared, internal anti-fascist feeling is rapid-
ly vanishing, the German people are "glad and
thankful for change that has come about," and
there is no reason for France and England to

oppose Germany, since Communism in those
countries would inevitably follow Hitler's fall.
This is based solely on letters from friends and
relatives of the writer who live in Germany,
and well-known Nazi propaganda.
If conditions in Germany are tolerable,-if the
wartime rations,-black bread, inedible eggs, and
a lack of milk, coffee, fruit,,and sugar-the New
York Times reports extant in Germany, are
tolerable conditions;
If putting seven million unemployed to work
on highways and ditches, and munitions, under
compulsory conditions readily comparable to the
chain gangs, is solving the unemployment prob-
lem;
If the Gestapo, an organization of at least
100,000 spies, is a mere well-trained police force,
maintained at tremendous expense because "there,
are still some nitwits who ban not see or do not
want to see the facts" (sic);
If the elaborate precautions Heinrich Himm-
ler is taking against "any considerable attempt at
rebellion-twhich can be expected at any time"
(Himmler) are indications that the people are
glad and thankful for Hitler;
If the violent pogroms, described by the "New
York Times" as a catastrophe difficult to believe
created by the deliberate action of any human
will, are minor evils to be condoned because of
the positive good Hitler has brought to Ger-
many;
If the antagonism for the Third Reich has

from Scenes 4 and 5 of Act I and Scene I of
Act III are omitted, and the anxious, yearning
Introduction to Act II is given much more fully.
So far so better. But what is inconceivable is
that instead of carrying the Liebestod on to its
and the opera's sublime conclusion, Stokowski
breaks it off at the moment of its climax and
finishes with the noisy, unimportant "tag" from
the end of Act II. Thus the beauty of the Liebes-
tod is irreparably marred, and the emotional h-
tensity built up in the listener throughout nine
record sides is left unrelieved.
Stokowski Versions Rich
On the other side of the ledger, there is much
that is superlative about the set: the reassuring
opulence and brilliance and impeccable playing
of the Stokowski-directed Philadelphia Orches-
tra, the excellent mechanical job of recording,
and above all the indisputable intensity and pene-
tration of Stokowski's performance. But for the
lack of the rich, sensuous warmness of the human
voice, it is the ultimate in musical passion, in
the combined expression of unashamed eroticism,
fatalistic devotion, and transfigured love.
Of the other album of Wagnerian excerpts,
the most important item is Parsifal's cry of
"Amfortas! Die Wunde" from the Second Act
of the "Sacred Festival Drama," a passage hith-
erto lacking first-rate representation upon disks.
The "Guileless Fool," heretofore unconscious of
the forces of good and evil which animate the
drama, is in the act of being seduced by satanic
Klingsor's handmaid Kundry when he at last
comes to the realization of all he has heard and
seen and through the sympathetic understanding
of Amfortas' agonies is able to withstand and
overcome his seducer. Melchior is in fine voice
and manages to mix in some singing along with
the shouting; the Philadelphia, though not quite
the same orchestra with Ormandy as under
Stokowski, still gives able assistance, and the
recording is finely executed save that the voice
at times overbalances the ever-important orches-
tra. The other record in the set comprises Parsi-
fal's "Closing Song" of restoration of Good over
Evil and proclamation of himself as King of the
Grail, from Act III, and the familiar "Farewell"
of Lohengrin to his new bride, who by her lack
of implicit trust in him has brought about their
eternal separation and also the end of the opera.
The work is still high class throughout, but it is
hard to see why, with so many Wagnerian pass-
ages still crying vainly for attention, space should
have been used for another version of the already
amply recorded Lohengrin aria

TODAY 'i
WASH INGTON
-by David Lawrence-
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-No dif-
ferences of opinion are to be found in
Congress on the importance of an
effective national defense, but the
argument begins when it is sought to
fix just what is adequate.
President Roosevelt, as commander-
in-chief of the army and navy, is in
possession of the very latest infor-
mation as to military or naval plans
of foreign powers which might con-
ceivably affect America. Such infor-
mation cannot be made public, but
the President went as far as he could
When he permitted the two American
ambassadors resident at Paris and
London to communicate confidential-
ly in person to joint committees of
both Houses of Congress their im-
pressions of the European situation
as it relates to possible war..
The question really is, how soon
Europe will engage in war, for it is
taken for granted that, just as the
United States in 1914 made an effort
to keep out of the World War, en-
tanglement did result. Whether this
participation was justified or unijusti-
fied, the fact remains that the tnited
States did enter the World War and
hence, from a military and naval
standpoint, the high officers of the
army and navy naturally make their
recommendations for defense on the
basis of possibility as demonstrated
by a previous experience.
National defense, of course, is the
nation's insurance against the fire
hazard of a world conflagration. A
fire department is necessary even if
fire doesn't occur very often. The
United States has a national wealth
estimated as far back as 1922 to have
been $320,000,000,000. To protect that
wealth, assuming it is not any higher
today, costs about $1,300,000,000 per
year now, or an insurance premium of
less than one-half of one per cent per
annum.
If governments were not engaged
nowadays in the business of stealing
territory to get resources and raw
materials, there would be little need
for a bigger army and navy. The
United States has the best raw mater-
ial supply in the world-a heavy per-
centage of the world's gold, the world's
copper, the world's oil, and the world's
food supply. But there are important
raw materials in Pan America.
The European governments which
have begun their campaigns of
"peaceful" penetration by the threat
of force have shown a tendency to
look covetously at countries with valu-
able raw materials below the Rio
Grande. No matter what official as-
surances are given publicly, the infor-
mation available is to the effect that
South and Central America are not
outside of the areas to which hungry
eyes are turned by the so-called dic-
tatorship countries.
Recently, private informants from
European countries have stated flat-
ly to this correspondent that war in
Europe within two years was almost a
ten-to-one probability, and that the
next World War would start through
conflict between Soviet Russia and
Japan, which would afford the Hitler
Government an opportunity to seize
the Ukraine and add to Germany's
march to the East. Contradictory in-
formation comes as to the strength
of the anti-Chamberlain sentiment
in England, but the American Gov-
ernment has made up its mind that a
national defense policy should be
constructed on the basis of American
power rather than alliances, desirable
though they may become in an inter-
national emergency.

Robert Sherwood
The imaginative yellow posters
generously adorning the bulletin
boards throughout campus advise all
and sundry that Play Production is,
offering Robert Sherwood's "The Pet-
rified Forest" at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre for five performances
beginning this Wednesday night.
There will be, apparently, a Saturday
matinee.
That Play Production should choose
to do a play of Robert Sherwood
comes at a rather significant time.
At this very moment, Mr. Sherwood
has a play on Broadway called "Abe
Lincoln In Illinois," and it has been
cited by critics as not only the best
play to come from his pen, but the
best play to come from the pen of an
American playwright in many years.
When we briefly trace the author's
literary career and observe his de-
velopment through such shows as
"The Road to Rome," "Reunion in
Vienna," "The Petrified Forest,"
"Idiot's Delight," and the culmination
in "Abe Lincoln," it seems only natur-
al to testify to his extraordinary
ability and give credit to him.
Play Production will alternate the
two leads in this, their third presen-
tation of the semester. It should prove
an interesting experiment, both from
