Lately he hasn't been so easy-going. For four

Today that man's here again. We welcome him
rdially and sincerely. Whether our smile re-
ains as hearty in farewell depends somewhat on

which fraternities will derive from such dormi-

tages of a rearrangement of finances. Too often
men who would have made good fraternity ma-

tory housing and go elsewhere to school, fraterni-
ties lose what might have proven valuable addi-

if adequate and comfortable housing facilities
are available in University maintained dormi-

In Defense Of
SplendidIsolation .. .
the European crisis, it again becomes
America's problem to devise means of keeping
out of the fracas. By examining the history of
the period from 1914 to 1918 we should be able
to formulate some program and then, put it into
operation immediately.
The first step and the most important one
which we failed to take seriously during the last
war, is that of getting and keeping our nationals
and their property out of the war zones, and
forbidding loans to either side.
At present, the Associated Press reports that
there are about 88,000 Americans living in Europe
today. These figures include 5,890 in Germany,
5,190 in Czechoslovakia, 12,384 in France, 25,516
in Italy, 2,500 in Poland, 660 in Hungary and 706
in Rumania, all of which nations are in the dan-
ger areas in the impending conflict. The report
continues that "these figures do not include the
thousands of tourists clamoring for steamship
passage from the war menaced areas.
At present, the navy has five vessels in Euro-
pean waters which could not possibly afford ac-
commodations for evacuation of more than a
few hundred of these Americans. Many would be
able to obtain passage oh commercial boats. The
remainder must be warned to flee and accommo-
dations provided and those who wish to remain
must be left to their own resources.
Property and investments made abroad by our
citizens are made at all times with the under-
standing that they are made at the citizen's
risk: that they may at any time be confiscated
by hostile powers or that they may be devastated
by war and that the United States government ac-
cepts no responsibility for them.
No loans of any-kind, either by individuals or
by the government, can be permitted if we 'are
to preserve our neutrality. Likewise, American
ships must keep out of war zones and must not
carry contraband of war. The maligned Neutral-
ity Act, although working an injustice on cer-
tain nations, seems to be the only way of prevent-
ing a re-occurance of the happenings of 1916
and 1917. Forbidding travel except at the citizen's
risk will likewise be necessary.
The second step which has already been pro-
vided for was diescribed by Mark Foote in his
column Tuesday. The panic resulting immediately
on the declaration of war, anticipated in view of
the experience of 1914, will be cushioned or at
least forestalled by transfer of funds to this
country by foreign investors, but mainly by
domestic measures organized since 1914. First.
of these is the Federal Reserve system barely
established at that time, which was set up for
just such eventualities and is now prepared
for its work. Also, the Securities and Exchange
Commission with its control over commodity and
stock exchanges, and the Federal Deposit In-
surance Corp., to protect the banking structure,
have been established to stabilize economic setup
of this country.
Finally, serious consideration of some pro-
posal such as the Ludlow Resolution or the pro-
posed amendment so long advocated by Gen.
Smedley Butler to prevent our soldiers fighting
outside of this nation, or to place in the hands
of the people the choice as to whether they want
war or not. These, along with a watchful eye
over the profits of the munitions makers, ought
to prevent another mess like the last one in
which we involved ourselves.
The present halt in the march to war is only
a short respite. We must now decide whether we

wouldn't prefer "splendid isolation" to another
Pyrrhic victory like the last.

Railroad DiS Ute
Again the country has reason to be grateful for
the enlightened provisions enacted to avert a
tie-up of the railroads. Various mediation and
arbitration moves have failed, 950,000 railroad
employes voted to go on strike next Friday night
rather than accept the 15 per cent wage cut which
the railroads had proposed to put into effect at
that time.
That adoes not mean, however, that the em-
ployes will walk out and the trains stop moving
at the strike deadline. The Railway Labor Act
of 1926 provides that after a strike call has been
issued, the President may appoint an emergency
fact-finding commission to investigate the dis-
pute and make recommendations. No strike may
be called for 30 days after the commission's re-
port is issued.
President Roosevelt yesterday appointed such
an emergency commission-one of able and dis-
tinguished personnel. The hearings are expected
to last two or three weeks. Allowing a few days
for the hearings to get under way, a reasonable
time for the report to be written and a period
of 30 days thereafter in which the status quo
must be observed, it would be some time in
December before a strike call could become effec-
With railroads representing one-third of the
mileageyin the country virtually bankrupt and
another third verging on grave difficulties, the
management and the unions are agreed that the
nation's railways face a crisis and that a program

Anybody who attempts to write newspaper
comment on world affairs while history proceeds
at its present breakneck pace must risk the
chance of being inaccurate
and grossly unfair. The whole
face of the world is subject
to change between editions.
But, after all, no day-by-day
columnist makes any pre-
5 tense of thinking of himself
as a historian or as one
whose words will be remem-
bered when final or even ma-
tured judgments are set down.
But these are not the times in which anybody
feels inspired to deal with the birds and flowers,
and even small columnists can assert the right of
self-determination and the freedom of expression.
One tries to catch, if he can, some semblance of a
pattern in the turning and twisting of events.
I am beginning to have a strong feeling that
certain men and women in progressive groups
may qualify as major prophets. Indeed, I have
listened to several American newspaper writers,
well-informed on foreign affairs, who charted
out with a high degree of accuracy the recent
There are few incidents in history, and if ,we
were all equipped with adequate background in-
formation therewould be only a minor number
of surprises. I can mention John Gunther, for
instance, as one who told me at least six weeks
ago the way in which he thought the war lords
would jump. They have followed his specifications
very closely. Almost it begins to seem as if the
pageant of history were a play carefully rehearsed
behind closed doors and now being put on for
a public performance.
* * *
Pact Against Russia
I heard several foreign correspondents pre-
dict, a long time ago, that Adolf Hitler's inten-
tion was to isolate Russia by bringing about a
four-power pact, with Germany, Italy, England
and France as the allies. Indeed, Hitler has made
open overtures for such a setup, but public
opinion in England and France was not suffi-
ciently favorable for any such alliance to be made
deliberately and in the open.
These tactics have changed. Ncw the pressure
is being put on in a different form. Hitler, in
effect, is saying to the Western democracies,
"Join me in an alliance or meet me in a war. The
price of peace is fraternization with Fascism."
Instead of being asked to walk into the' parlor,
England and France are being ordered to crawl
Now, some will say that there is no compro-
mise whatsoever which should not be accepted to
establish peace or even to stave off war for a
little while. That is hardly the question. Time
will tell whether the acceptance of Hitler's world
leadership is the path to peace. For my own part
I believe it is the most certain course to war.
Again, people who have criticized Chamber-
lain severely are called to task and asked to re-
member that if he sacrificed dignity in his flight
to Hitler's summer home he did it to save the
lives of millions. His dignity is not the issue. If
Chamberlain could avert war he would be justi-
fied in camping at any doorstep out of which
peace might proceed. But did that voice which
roared over the radio from the Berlin Sport
aPalace sound like the voice of one intent upon
bringing reason back tb earth?
* * *
Hero Or AfHamlet
No one could listen to the tragically tired voice
f Chamberlain in his report to the empire with-
out being moved. But it also seemed to me that
few could fail to note the ineffectuality of his
words and, indeed, of his entire personality. To
be sure, history may call him a hero, but I be-
lieve it is more likely to identify him as a British
Hamlet who was, by all the circumstances of his
background, rendered inept for the situation into
which he was thrust.
It may be that here is the full flower and the

best example of the Tory English gentleman who
muddles through by saying mildly to the strong
tides of economic forces, "But really, sir, that
isn't cricket." Wellington fought a battle which
ended the career of the Hitler of that generation.
And Wellington remarked that Waterloo had been
won and the empire saved upon the playing fields
of Eton.
After listening to Chamberlain's "Tut, tut," I
have a notion that it may be lost in precisely the
same place.
Dewey On Top
The extraordinary scenes of enthusiasm which
greeted Mr. Thomas E. Dewey in the Saratoga
convention were, in part, the cheers of politicians
for a strong leader and a victory candidate. They
represented even more, we are confident, the re-
joicing of the whole party over its rebirth as the
representative oi youth and of progress.
The brief speech of acceptance which Mr.
Dewey made was typical of his steady forthright-
ness. He minced no words about the blindness
of his own party leaders in the past. He wasted
no time in attacking his opponents in any parti-
san sense. It was toward the future that he
looked and it was the future that he proposed to
discuss in the forthcoming campaign:
His discussion of his personal problem in reach-
ing his decision to accept the nomination was
typically candid and conclusive. We share the
regret of our readers that Mr. Dewey will, upon
becoming Governor, cease to be District Attorney
management-a responsibility which, of course,
cannot be permanently sidestepped.

If anything gets under my hide
and more than ever makes me real-
ize that injustice is the order of the
day around this school, it is a delib-
erate, attempt on the part of the
powers that be, the big bullies, to
get me out of tis intellectual opium
den by underhanded means. I haven't
done anything to anyone and I resent
the fact that the university is trying
to give me enough rope to hang my-
self. It's no use boys. I'm wise to
your little game.
They almost caught me though.
The very day I set foot on this cam-
pus again, I felt it in my bones that
there was a plot to get me out of the
road. When I saw that pile of bricks
stacked on the sidewalk between An-
gell Hall and Haven Hall I knew What
it was. Just as: the bounders hoped I
would, I picked up one of those bricks
and weighed it lovingly in my hand.
I glanced at Haven Hall's nice shiny
windows. Temporary i n s a n i t y
clutched my arm. Everything went
purple with pink stripes. Then some-
thing stopped me.
I'll «tefl you bys, it isn't worth it.
Even to get rid of me you shouldn't
risk the destruction of just as many
windows as there are-"bricks in that
stack. I am deadly with a brick and
those are the nicest throwing bats I
ever laid a hand on. Besides the win-
dows, I figure if I worked fast I could
make shambles out of that hot house,
or whatever it is, over by Natural
Science. Never thought of that, eh?
Besides, if you must know, it. won't
work anyway, no matter how tempt-
ing you make it. I'm inhibited. -

From The Trapeze's undercover
agent at the Kappa House comes this 1
story of frustrated relaxation..
The rushee or party of the first part
if you prefer, was pretty well beatenI
down by a tough afternoon of attend-
ing teas and listening to such original
topics of conversation as Ann Arbor
weather, Professors, Ann Arbor weath-
er, rain, Ann Arbor weather and so
on ad nauseum. The jaunty feather
in her bonnet was beginning to droop,z
and she had consumed so much tea7
that she gurgled like an old hot water1
bottle when she walked. It was a hell1
of an afternoon.1
After the Kappa House she had<
one more sisterhood to attend and
she was determined to get as much
rest as possible enroute. She called a
taxi and after winding up the "I've
had such a wonderful time" stuff, she
beat it down the walk as fast as her
aching dogs would allow her, piled in,I

of New York County. But the argu-
ment which he'made as to the larger,
importance of the Governorship in re-
lation to the very problems of racket-;
eering, which he has been solving
with such notable success, seems to
us unanswerable. The underworld is
no longer localized and confined with-
in counties. It stretches its tenacles
throughout the state, and Mr. Dewey
as Governor can aid the fight against;
racketeering in not one county but
throughout the sixty-two counties of
the state. As to the local problems of
Manhattan Mr. Dewey has shown
himself to be far more than a single-
handed' prosecutor. He has demon-
strated an ability to select and organ-
ize which will serve him in good stead
at Albany and which has already giv-
en this city a non-political, complete-
ly honest and thoroughly able District
Attorney's office. When he goes he
will name his successor. In the mean-
time his office has ample prosecuting
ability for the cases in hand; it has
also the extraordinary detailed and
studied records of evidence which Mr.
Dewey's organizing ability has placed
at the service of the people of the
Mr. Dewey promises to discuss the
issues in detail during the course of

that he has sketched he has already
made plain that his face is toward

against a goal because the New Deal
has adopted it. He is for the realities

" versity of Michigan has expanded
its curriculum, it has extended its cultural and
social activities into fields unheard of ten years
ago, and has become a leader in many fields of
advanced research. But this widening of scope,
these advances in the- field of learning, have not
been without their unhappy ramifications-rami-
fications which affect the student body and
through it the University.
A necessary adjunct to this broadening of in-
fluence has been the wide-spread plant expansion
of the University which has extended its physical
domain far beyond the confines of the original
campus. The Museums, the Law Qudarangle, the
League, the Graduate School, the Carrillon and
projected buildings have added and will add their
utilitari n and esthetic contributions to the
University. However, this extension of physical
domain has necessitated extensive razing of
houses bordering the campus on all sides, houses
which in the years up to about 1928 provided
accommodations for from one to two thousand
University enrollment in 1928 was at the 9,000
mark. This year it bids fair to reach 11,000. So
in the period during which houses accommodat-
ing some 2,000 men were being razed, the enrolls
nent continued to grow by the same number. This.
condition has necessitated the removal of room-
ing houses farther from the campus, while the
shortage of desirable rooms has steadily become
more acute.
A step in the right direction was taken by the;
University last year with construction of the
Allen-Rumsey dormitory and this year with the
launching of a $2,100,000 dormitory building pro-
gram to provide adequate housing for 1,000 men.
It is of course only a step, but it is to be remem-
bered that building dormitories is a costly and
