The U.S. An
Aid To China? 0. .
Y ESTERDAY'S headlines in The Daily
which read, "Russo-Finnish Con-
flict Halted," marks the end of the youngest of
the three current wars in Europe and the Far
East. With one conflict eliminated from the
field of competition for world attention, it is
hoped that more care and efforts at a speedy,
peaceful solution of a war, which although it
has been of longer duration than any of the
others, has received much les publicity-the
Sino-Japanese struggle.
When the next Congress meets, it will be faced
with making the momentous decision of deciding
where America's influence min the Far East
is to be-for law and order, or for aggression.
Since the violation of the Nine-Power Treaty
which Japan voluntarily signed, her leaders have
been engaged for two and one-half years in
an unprovoked and cruel attack on China.
1 SPITE OF numerous protests on our part
of Japan's violations of American rights un-
der the treaties and in spite of our revulsion
at Japan's treatment of China as evidenced by
numerous petitions and editorials in American
newspapers, we have been allowing Japan un-
limited access to our markets and materials.
Legally, and theoretically, we are neutral, but
in practice we are one of the unofficial 0.u0
indispensable partners in Japan's aggression
against China. In violation of the very treaty
which we persuaded China to accept, we are
furnishing a steadily increasing percentage of
the necessary and vital war materials to Japan,
who doesn't have them and without them could
not continue destroying China.
Japan receives over 90 percent of all of her
scrap iron and steel and copper from the United
States. Every week special steels, alloys, metal-
working machinery, trucks, lumber and lubri-
cating oils are shipped from our ports to those
of Japan. An embargo on just the 90 percent
of Japan's aviation oil alone which America
furnishes, could practically stop the bombings
of open cities.
WHAT we are helping Japan do is against our
political and economic interests, and our
security in the Pacific. Although our trade with
Japan has been two or three times as large as
that with China, China offers a greater potential
market. While Japan's industrial market and
development is largely completed, China's is
still in the embryo stage. In 1937, an enormous
program of industrialization, railroads and high-
ways was started under a stable and progressive
governmet. If that program can be continued
under China's own leaders, the economic needs
and purchasing power of 40,000.000 people will
be greatly enhanced and will be felt all over the
world.
More important than our economic interests
is the violation of one of the finest traditions
and moral senses of the Americans-the feeling
and respect for human freedom. Yet for two
years we have been supporting a destructive
attack on a nation which is innocent and for
which we had a special responsibility. Our moral
feelings are against Japan, the aggressor; but
our material strength is against China, the vic-
tim. Here is definitely a case of not, "practicing
what we preach."
In answer to the question,."Would an embargo
on war materials to Japan lead to war?" it could
be said that we can only get into a war with
JaTnan if she iesnto war with us or if we go

A NEWLY reorganized tutorial plan
for independent men was announced
yesterday in The Daily by Phil Westbrook, '40,
president of Congress. This plan includes ar-
rangements for 50 students from the ranks of
Phi Eta Sigma and Tau Beta Pi, scholastic
honor societies of the literary college and the
engineering school, to form a panel of tutors
for students who, for one reason or another,
have fallen behind in their academic work.
This new tutorial system-or, rather, this new
reorganization of a system that operated last
year-is significant. It shows a greater interest
in campus affairs by the student body, as repre-
sented by Congress. Again, it shows a similar
interest, a more active participation, being taken
by a student organization. It displays, as well,
a more thorough interest in academic questions
and in their solution through student aid, some-
thing likely to prove economical for the in-'
structed as well as an excellent form of review
for both tutor and tutored.
TJHE establishment of the panel of tutors
and the arrangement for registration of
students needing scholastic help is the first step
toward student government at the University;
or so it seems, and so it may well be. Student
government, active and effective, is something
greatly to be desired at Michigan, and the only
way it can be set up is through actual accom-
plishments by student representative bodies.
Congress is such an organization, and the step
it has taken can be made an entering wedge
for student government.
The purely academic importance of the plan
is undeniably great. It will permit independent
men, students who were formerly forced to gd
to regular tutors or to spend valuable hours
chasing instructors from one end of the campus
to the other, to get student aid at reasonable
rates or at no expense. This aid will be called
upon for minor points, little things that amount
to great and important issues if they accumu-
late, with which one would not bother to go to
a regular departmental tutor who would charge
a much higher price for his services.
AT the same time, giving aid will prove to be
valuable axperience for the honor students
of the tutorial panel. In order to help a student
it will be found necessary to review the material
of the course in which he needs aid. Often
these review-courses will be those which are
somewhat forgotten and from which the pros-
pective tutor will get little value unless he re-
views and freshens the material in his mind.
Thus the tutors will benefit from the instruction
probably as much as the needy students, squeez-
ing a little more value from their time at ther
University.
The potentialities of the tutorial plan are
unlimited in their value. How far they are to
be realized depends on the tutors and upon the
tutored-and upon Congress. Good work has
been done thus far by that organization; may
it be continued.

Is No Better *. *
T HE WORLD has moved a long way
since the day when American col-
leges were places where men wore raccoon coats
and drank hard liquor, but sometimes it seems
that the movement isn't as far forward as we
think.
The latest crime which can be attributed to
the college life is the death of a youth at Colum-
bia, Mo., following his initiation into a secret
drinking "fraternity." As a result of the death-
which was caused by the boy's strangling in the
bed. clothes-Missouri officials are conducting
an investigation on the campus to see what the
conditions are which permit such a tragedy to
occur.
The official query is only a day or two old,
but even here at Michigan we know what they
will discover. Missouri has one or two organ-
izations which call themselves "fratenities,"
adopt some phony Greek letter name, and meet
a couple of times a month for a drinking bout
of one kind or another. They receive no sanc-
tion from the University, they serve no real pur-
pose, and really only reflect the attitude of the

members who affiliate themselves with such a
group. Nevertheless, such organizations do exist
and are a constant source of menace to the
reputation and welfare of any college.
THEY are dangerous because they give a kind
of personal sanction to unintelligent and
improper use of intoxicants. If the Missouri
youth had not drunk himself insensible he would
have been able to release himself from the sheets
which strangled him. Instead, his light-hearted
attitude toward liquor has resulted in a scandal
which will damage the reputation of the Univer-
sity of Missouri, which has taken the life of a
young man, and has resulted in grief for his
parents.
Here in Ann Arbor the situation is no differ-
ent. Students here still participate in drunken
orgies and join secret drinking "fraternities."
Michigan has been fortunate, however, and no
real accidents have occurred.
Missouri's fate should be an object lesson to
us. Every effort should be made here to pro-
mote a student attitude of intelligence in regard
to liquor problems. Organizations which are
formed only to promote intoxication should die
for want of student support.
The responsibility for improvement belongs
to the student body itself, and not to University
officials or anyone else.

GULLIVER'S
CAVILS
By YOUNG GULLIVE R
SOMEBODY once said of John Steinbeck's
Of Mice And Men that it is honestly writ-
ten, but that the net effect is one of fakery.
It is certainly a testimony to Steinbeck's genius
that public praise for a weak novel affected
him so little that he followed it with The Grapes
Of Wrath. The film version of Steinbeck's great
novel needs no comment. But Gulliver cannot
refrain from a few remarks on Lewis Milestone's
movie version of Of Mice And Men.
It is a great picture. Granted. It is also,
however, better than the book from which it
was taken-a situation without precedent in
Hollywood history. This book, taken together
with the fact that within the space of two
weeks Gulliver saw two of John Steinbeck's
novels made into great motion pictures, has
been almost too much for him.
The picture is better than the book because
it teeters on the brink, but does not fall into
the pit of mucky sentimentality which Stein-
beck dug for George and Lennie. Under the
sensitive direction of Lewis Milestone, the lit-
tle people of the book come to life far more
significantly than they did in the novel. The
weakest figure, Lennie, is still weak; it is still
difficult to feel yourself into the semi-articulated
desires of a low-grade moron. But aside from
Lenmie, and the situations which center around
him, there is not a flaw in the picture. That
cannot be said of the novel.
THE young American composer Aaron Cop-
land wrotethe music for the picture. It is
superb. The acting can be compared only to
the acting in The Grapes Of Wrath-not one
figure is slighted. You see Charles Bickford,
who has been growling around in Grade C mur-
der mysteries for years, as you haven't seen
him since Anna Christie. You see Burgess Mere-
dith with most of the ham sliced off. You see
Betty Field not as a silly schoolgirl, but as a
fine actress, carefully picking out and building
up those nuances of character which Steinbeck
only indicated. Roman Bohnen of the Theatre
Guild, who makes his film debut as old Candy,
is magnificent. And Leign Whipper, as crippled
old Crooks, the Negro who lives in the stable
and reads books-he can't play cards with the
rest of the boys on the ranch because he's black
-contributes the most haunting characteriza-
tion which any Negro has ever achieved on the
screen.
But once again, as in every great film, it is
the director who binds together the separate
strands of the actors and fuses them into a
picture of unified mood. And it is the mood
which distinguishes this picture so sharply from
The Grapes Of Wrath; the latter is perforce a
mural, a picture which must shift in mood as you
move from one scene to another. Of Mice And
Men is a miniature (the John Steinbeck of
Tortilla Flat), and as perfectly done in its own
way as the mural. The mood, the unifying
theme, is that of comradeship and tenderness-
a compound which has been missing in the
American arts since Walt Whitman. One exam-
ple: George meets old Candy for the first time.
Candy's right hand is gone and as they are
walking along George notices it and stares.
Candy immediately freezes up and stops talking,
whereupon George throws his arm around Can-
dy's shoulder and they walk on . . . the poten-
tial antagonism is destroyed. So it is with'the
entire film. The scenery of the Far West i
utilized to implement the theme of tenderness,
and the picture ends in the forest where George
has killed Lennie. No one is there now but a
little squirrel sgittering down the side of a tree,
and the autumn leaves are blowing about.
THEATRE

By JOHN SCHWARZWALDER
The thirty-fifth annual presentation of the
Junior Girls Play, given to an enthusiastic
audience last night at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, was a howling success. The word is
probably well chosen, for the amount of audience
participation by the be-gowned senior girls
who filled the entire first floor was of a calibre
to put to shame the proverbial Irish fight crowd
on St. Patrick's Day.
Richard McKelvey's script contained enough
plot to hang the usual series of songs and dances
on and was especially commendable for the
number and quality of the gags it contained.
We will not spoil your pleasure by retelling
them, but if you haven't heard them you prob-
ably will within the week. This script was played
with enviable verve and enthusiasm by a tre-
mendous cast which made up in these qualities
for a regrettable lack of some others, notably
poise and diction upon occasion.
The costuming was superb, and Robert Corri-
gan's sets were all that could be desired from a
scenic viewpoint. Notable among the actors,
or better, actresses, was Margaret Schiller's
Anne, who convulsed the show with her brightly
played comedy, her dancing and the most in-
imitable giggle heard on the Mendelssohn stage
in many a year.
At least two other comediennes deserve more
than passing comment. These are the delightful
caricature of Mrs. Fairfax-Hollingsworth played
by Joan Baker, and Doris Wechsler's almost too
true imitation of a - lady gym teacher. Very
helpful also were Mary Ellen Wheeler as a be-
wildered Phibete, and Harriet Schocraft's bit,
entitled simply Eater.

WASHINGTON MERRY GO-ROUN
WASHINGTON-Apropos of Sen-
ator Alben Barkley's offer to resign
as Democratic Fioor Leader, made in
the heat of the Hatch bill fight, it
has never leaked out that some time
ago a plan to "boost" Barkley out
of the leadership was secretly dis-
cussed at the White House.
Initiator of the plan was Demo-
cratic Elder Statesman Charley Mich-
elson, who called on the President
shortly after the death of Justice
Butler, while Roosevelt was ponder-
ing the appointment of Frank Mur-
phy to take his place on the Supreme'
Court.
Michelson suggested that in solving
his Supreme Court problemn the Pres-
ident might at the same time find a .
solution for the muddled Senate1
leadership. He pointed out that Bark-
ley had not been very good as Senate
leader, while Jimmy Byrnes of South
Carolina would be excellent.
But, Barkley had been a loyal
friend of the President's, so Michel-
son proposed that he be put on the
Supreme Court to fill the Butler va-
cancy. Then Byrnes could be the
Senate leader.
The President, however, pointed
out that a considerable kick-back
from Catholics could be expected if
they saw Butler's place go to a non-
Catholic. Thiswas especially true in
view of the fact that he had ap-
pointed Felix Frankfurter, a Jew, to
replace Brandeis, also a Jew.
Michelson said he thought the ap-
pointment of a Catholic to the Su-
preme Court could wait until the next
vacancy. He thought there was sure
to be another vacancy.
But Roosevelt still felt the new
Supreme Court Justice would have to
be a Catholic. And that meant Frank
Murphy. The only other Catholic
candidates were John P. Devaney,
former Chief Justice of the Minne-
sota Supreme Court, and Justice
Harold Stephens of the District of
Columbia Court of Appeals. The
former didn't want the appointment,
and the President thought the latter
didn't quite measure up to it.
So Frank Murphy went to the Su-
preme Court and Alben Barkley re-
mained in the Senate.
Emperor Jones
Finnish Minister Procope gave a
luncheon the other day. A nurber
of. distinguished guests were present,
all of the arriving promptly at the
appointed hour of 1:15.
The lunch, however, was a little
late in being served. The guests all
appeared to be there, but nothing
happened. Finally cocktails were
passed, pink and insipid in appear-
ance but carrying a powerful wallop.
Minister Procope and his aides
"skoaled" and "skoaled" and "skoal-
ed," until some of the guests began
to be a bit dizzy.
One forty-five rolled around, and
still no lunch. Finally at 2 o'clock,
the Minister made a little announce-
ment.
"You see," he said' half apologizing,
half smiling, "I am a very poor man,
and I cannot have lunch without my
banker."
At this point, in stepped Export-
Import Bank czar Jesse Jones.
All hands may deny it, but it is
a fact that both Taft and Vanden-
berg emissaries recently sounded out

Dewey lieutenants on the proposi-
tion that he take second place on
their tickets.
The answer that came back was
short and emphatic--"No!"
Dewey was represented as feeling
that if he doesn't make the grade
this year he is young enough to wait
for another try, meanwhile building'
himself up by again running for
Governor of New York.. Therefore in
the current race he hasdno intention
of playing second fiddle to anyone.
It's all or nothing with him.
Both the Taft and Vandenberg
camps believe that, despite the New
Yorker's lead in popular polls, he is
steadily losing ground with the Re-
publican leaders who will control the
votes at the Philadelphia convention.
The Taft-Vandenberg strategy is
to avoid any head-on collision with
Dewey in states where his public
popularity ensures his winning pri-
maries. Instead they will urge un-
instructed delegations and secretly
line up the local GOP chiefs, who pri-
vately are cold to Dewey and will go
against him at the convention if they
aren't tied up by a primary vote
Thus Taft and Vandenberg managers
figure they can outmaneuver Dewey
despite his greater popular strength

Springfield. Springfield is only 80.
miles from the Iowa line, within easy
reach for the many Iowa party lead-
ers invited to lunch with Taft. Thei
speech was easily broadcast through-t

not barging into MacNider's home

If these seem to be fine points, they
nevertheless count up in politics.
More than one campaign has been
lost because they were overlooked. 1
NOTE-Taft's speeches are acon-

Forrest Davis. Taft writes them him-s

Davis is unable to get them to the
press in advance.-
Merry-Co-Round
GOP strategy during the Hatch bill
battle was matchless, Led by brainy
Senator Charles McNary, the Repub-
licans said nothing, let the Democrats
do all the arguing, and voted for the,
measure as a bloc. When GOP Sen-
ator John Danaher of' Connecticut
started sounding off and offering
amendments, he was quickly and
forcefully silenced . . . Theodore
Metcalf, who as Lieutenant Governor
of Nebraska started dishing out hon-
orary titles of "Admiral of the Ne-

braska Navy," has tossed his hat into
the ring for a seat in Congress. Met-
calf wanted to try for the Senate, but
when serious competition developed
switched to running for the House
Politicos have long been im-
pressed by the way South Dakota
State GOP Chairman J. D. Coon gets
around to so many meetings. Now
they are wondering if the fact that
he has an identical twin brother
doesn't explain the mystery. The
two brothers live in duplex houses, are
law partners and when at college
kept each other's dates with girls.
The cotton picking machine is mak-
ing slow headway in the U.S., but in
Argentina it is becoming as popular
as its predecessor, the American auto-
mobile.
Three years ago, the Argentine Cot-
ton Board purchased a U.S. mechani-
cal cotton picker for experimental
-purposes. After elaborate tests in the
rich cotton areas of the Argentine
Chaco, where the land is flat as a
table, it was officially announced, that
"tests with this cotton picking ma-
e chine have convinced the authorities
. of its efficiency and all around super-
e iority over manual picking."
