For The Senate .. .
HE ONLY truly functional student
T government body on the University
campus is, strangely enough, the independents'
organization-Congress. Not a really represen-
tative group, this organization has been a lone
eagle in the field of getting things done. But
Congress is not the only student organization
The fraternities are ably represented by the
Interfraternity Council, the independent wom-
en have Assembly, Panhellenic gives voice to the
sororities--and that one and only all-campus
body, the Student Senate, supposedly is the
cross section of all the students. For the pur-
pose of making it truly representative, the Sen-
ate's members are elected by proportional rep-
resentation. So far, so good. But of what avail
is any type of representation when the organi-
zation and function of the representative group
does not attract even one-quarter of the stu-
dents to its election?
The whole reason behind the failure of stu-
dent government on this campus is the apathy
of the students toward the Senate. The way to
waken the interest of the students is to make
the groups concerned a part of their interests.
To' this end the Senate has failed miserably.
What can be done about it? One university
in the middlewest-Ohio State-has a student
senate that is successful, representative and at-
tractive to the student body as a whole. Its out-
standing virtue is its compactness and position
of dominance over other campus groups. It has
power, and, what's more, it has representation
of every interest on the Ohio State campus.
Some of the activities administered by the
Ohio State Senate aptly illustrate its scope. OSU
students violating certain rules of the University
may demand a hearing before a Student Court,
a functionary of the Senate. A Student Labor
Board studies and tries to better student work-
ing conditions. The Senate correlates and over-
sees the varied activities of Homecoming cele-
brations, supervises elections of all class officers,
works with the University with respect to public
relations, has a voice in the policy of the Ohio
State Lantern, student newspaper..
These activities show beyond a doubt that the
Senate cannot help but have an interest in every
corner of campus life. The membership of the
Senate, perhaps greatest contrast of all to our
own Senate, shows the possibility of variety in
the composition of a representative group. Ohio
State's Senate not only has regularly elected
members from each of the schools and colleges
there, but more important, has a representa-
tive from each of the 15 organizational groups
on campus, including the Interfraternity Coun-
cil, Panhellenic, religious associations and other
Notwithstanding its hetereogeneous composi-
tion and size, the Ohio State handles success-
fully a large number of activities and the volume
of business it must handle is well-illustrated by
the fact that it meets every week in addition to
Special meetings, as contrasted to the bi-weekly
sessions our Senate holds.
Ohio State University students are fortunate
in possessing a truly representative student gov-
ernment body. But Michigan students can have
a similar set-up with very little trouble. There
are members of the Michigan faculty who take
a genuine interest in student affairs. These
men have been behind every progressive Move
To The Editor:
In announcing its lecture series for the second
semester, the Student Religious Association has
not given out much information concerning the
beliefs of the first speaker, Professor Carlson.
This is strange since the other speakers are
clearly identified as Catholic, Protestant and
Jewish. I have investigated this matter and
made a discovery which will, I am sure, be of
interest to many. Although it may be assumed
that Professor Carlson is an authority on re-
ligion because he has been chosen to speak on a
series in which the other speakers are authori-
ties, he has published only one work on religion,
and that was a lecture.
What is this man's faith? In his lecture on
"Science and the Supernatural" (Science, Feb.,
1931) he says, ". . . here is a confession of a
physiologist of lack of faith in the supernatural
. ." In reading further it is discovered that
not only faith, but also respect is completely
lacking. This may seem a little too strong, but
what else do the following random quotations
indicate? " . . accounts of creation of the
world and of man by people who were not pres-
ent at these events ....," " ... the resurrection
from the dead of persons in advanced stages of
decomposition . . . .," ". . . the modern man of
science has no essential quarrels with Jesus,
Confucius, Zoroaster, or Buddha. They did the
best they could, considering the ignorance of
their times.", and this is typical of his attitude
toward God: "When the Mormon leaders re-
ceived a tip from God that polygamy was or-
dered by him for his chosen people on earth (by
the way, a .revalation that is easy to take by the
average human male), the United States Gov-
ernment did not hesitate to challenge God, or
Brigham Young's sanity and veracity. The
Federal Government was powerful and adamant
and God yielded through a second bvalation to
the effect that he had changed his mind and
polygamy was no longer according to the plan
This, then, is the kind of man that is being
brought to our campus by, of all organizations,
the Student Religious Association! And many
will be fooled into hearing his lecture because of
the name of the sponsor. As if there were not
enough atheist organizations already on cam-
pus, bringing more than enough speakers to up-
hold this point of view! As if the religious faith
of students is not sufficiently undermined by
required courses in biology and geology! Must
these atheistic tendencies engendered by science
courses be strengthened by bringing under the
guise of religion a man who believes that the
scientific attitude "is, of course, partly charac-
terized by challenge of authority, be it man 'or
God." If the Student Religious Association
wishes to render a service to the university it
could very well begin by ceasing to encourage
To The Editor:
If one takes the newspapers literally, Finland
has been killing off the Red Army at the rate
of 5 per cent per day for a good many days. So
many in fact that a local rumor has it that
orders have gone out from Moscow for all Red
Army men who have been killed only once to
report for duty in the morning.
During this slaughter, however, it turns out
that the Russians have taken seventy-some
Modern Style . .
AMODERN SPANISH INQUISITION
has swept down upon Detroit,
Michigan. The heretics are 12 persons who be-
lieved strongly enough in democracy to support
and recruit men for the Loyalist Government
of Republican Spain several years ago. The
modern inquisitior is the Federal Bureau of in-
vestigation of the Department of Justice. Re-
cruiting soldiers for service in a war conducted
by foreign power is the charge that has called
forth Federal arrests that resemble in character
those extended to desperate gunmen.
The raids, authorized by a secret indictment,
were conducted at 5 a.m. on the morning of
Feb. 6, and when several" of those arrested called
the Detroit police, believing that the intruders
were burglars, the FBI agents broke down the
doors and ransacked the rooms. The men
arrested were handcuffed and chained together
and were sent to the prison at Milan, and the
only woman arrested is being held in solitary
confinement in a Detroit jail. They are allowed
one hour for visiting per month, and their total
bail amounts to the fantastic figure of $150,000.
The law in question might well be placed with
the rest of the hoary blue laws that appear in
the "It's the Law" feature of Collier's weekly,
for the statute dates from 1818. It has rarely
been enforced, and never in modern times. Ac-
tion similar to the present arrests was not taken
against securing of American recruits for Ethio-
pia or China and is not being taken against the
sending of American volunteers to fight for Fin-
land. When the assistant United States District
Attorney was asked about those doing the re-
cruiting for Finland he replied, "Finnish volun-
teers are not to be aided or financed, to the best
of my knowledge they are merely giving advice,
Yet the law is being suddenly enforced in the
case of Spain, at a time when the political mi-
nority view involved is unpopular. The conclu-
sion is unavoidable: the timing of the arrests,
the excessive bond, and the unusual treatment
Finnish forts and are beginning to inconven-
ience Finland in a small way.
All this reminds us of the story of the fighter
whose manager, sitting safely in the corner, kept
saying, "They can't hurt us, boy: they didn't lay
a glove on us in that last round." The fighter,
somewhat marred about the surface, said, "Well
then get that referee out .of there; somebody's
knocking my ears down."
Maybe the Finns are hitting one another over
the head out of boredom.
If the papers have been trying to make the
Red Army look incompetent, they've ddne it
too well; since at one and the same time other
propaganda agencies have been yelping about
poor little Finland in an attempt to excite sym-
pathy. If Finland's only worry is how to dis-
pose of the stacksdof deaddRussians When the
thaw comes, they don't need my help.
All I can get out of the whole welter is that
everybody is lying furiously; probably to no
good end from the point of view of the little
man-and I'm the little man. I get drafted
and shot and shoved around generally, to satis-
fy the exigencies of a situation I don't under-
stand, and which various agencies are making
damn sure I never do understand.
I'm sure this conflict of propaganda is a
blunder on the part of someone, but it's valu-
able to me. Until I get more truth they don't
get my nickel-or me either. I suspect the
truth now and it 'smells-has anyone else noticed
an odor? - Hugh McGinnis.
fy YOUNG GULLWER
THERE HAVE BEEN a lot of comments about
Gulliver's criticism of President Roosevelt in
Tuesday's Daily, and there will probably be a
number of indignant letters.wGulliver firmly
believes not only that his criticisms were basic-
ally just, but also that Roosevelt's present do-
mestic and foreign policies are deserving of the
most severe condemnation. Today we will take
up the President's use of the G-Men, and the
Mr. Roosevelt's man J. Edgar Hoover, the
hero of the American schoolboy, may be re-
meinmbered as the brains behind A. Mitchell
Palmer's infamous "red raids" of 1921. When
his reputation was sufficiently built up by a
good press and a series of Hollywood G-Men
epics, he turned to the job of cleaning up all
disaffected elements in the country. J. Edgar
has been very busy lately. He has been scurry-
ing around bagging German agents in the U.S.
When a reporter asked him how many French
and British agents his G-Men had dug up, he
answered, "Oh, we're not going after them;
the State Department told us to lay off them."
Hoover has also been busy arresting physicians
who examined prospective recruits for the Span-
ish Loyalist Army, and others who aided in the
sending of several thousand Americans to Spain,
clapping them into the brig on 20 thousand
dollars bail, refusing to allow their families to
communicate with them, and so on. They are
going to be tried on a law which has not been
in operation since the Year of Our Lord 1818 ...
The same week that these people were arrested,
Roosevelt announced that young men who want
to go to Finland to fight are not violating any
law if they do not swear allegiance to Finland.
They can apply, said the President, "for ex-
ample, at the Finnish Embassy."
Let's not bother about the logic of it. Let's
go on to the arrests of the striking WPA workers
in Minneapolis. This case didn't get very much
publicity in the press; maybe because all but
five of the sixty or seventy arrested (arrested by
Mr. Roosevelt's G-Men for having the nerve to
go on strike) were acquitted the other day. An
interesting feature of this case is the fact that
the accused were tried en masse ...
BOB PERLMAN'S LETTER printed in yester-
day's Daily covered the militarization of the
NYA pretty well. Let's go on to the matter of
the "moral embargo" against Japan and the
USSR. The word moral serves a dual purpose:
first, anyone who questions the embargo is ob-
viously immoral, and second, it demonstrates
the high morality of our business leaders, who
gladly give up their share of the blood money
because FDR says it isn't nice. What are the
facts? When Roosevelt tells the business in-
terests that they shouldn't sell arms to Japan
or Russia he is simply telling them that if they
do, the United States government won't place
any more orders with their firms. Pity the
poor business leader; but at least our capitalists
know that it's safer to play ball with the gov-
ernment than with Japan or Russia. So much
for business morality.
How about the Roosevelt morality? Are the
President and Congress enraged at the slaugh-
ter of 1,250,000 Chinese by the Japanese im-
perialists? If they were, they would certainly
be justified. But no; our congressmen are en-
raged at the fact that "American interests" are
being endangered in China. This means not
only that various American ladies have had
their faces slapped, but also that American oil
interests are getting worried, and also that the
U.S. wants to scare Japan into taking a firm
stand against the USSR. P.S.: Gulliver now
anticipates a flood of letters accusing him of
B By Samuel Grafton
Mr. Oliver Stanley, Britain's new
Secretary of State for War, may have,
killed half a million Englishmen by
his speech at Newcastle-on-Tyne. He
may also have prolonged the Hitler
regime by half-a-dozen years.
This takes a bit of doing, but Mr.
Stanley has the necessary talent;
that elegant ineptitude which has
marked the course of the British
Government from the unimplement-
ed guarantee of Poland to the present
In his Newcastle-on-Tyne speech
Mr. Stanley declared his war aim. It
is a desire to strip from the German
people, forever, "under this regime
or any other regime" the power to
In Herr Goebbels' propaganda of-
fice in Berlin, the functionaries must
have fallen on their knees and burst
into tearful prayers of thanks when
this news came along. It is, almost'
miraculously, what was needed to
save the Hitler regime. For Mr. Stan-
ley. in a single sentence, has de-
clared war on the German people1
as well as the German Government.
Hlore-Belisha is out and the bonerI
replaces the bounder in the War
Office. ** **
The Goebbels line is: "Our ene-;
mies want Germany to be destroyed;I
they don't care about democracy,
they wish to rule Europe." Now Mr.
Stanley brightly admits he seeks to
destroy German power, no matter
what regime holds office in Berlin.
Hitler can quote this as confirmation
from the horse's mouth.
In 1918 German revolutionaries
functioned under cover of Mr. Wil-
son's Fourteen Points, which prom-'
ised fair treatment to the Reich. But'
today a revolutionary becomes a
traitor to Germany as well as to
Adolf Hitler. Should he win and oust
Hitler and ask England for peace he
will have turned his country over to1
the mercies of Mr. Stanley. Why
should it not appear more sensible
now to the Hitler opposition to win
the war first, beat England and deal
with Hitler afterward?

The reviewer by the very nature of
his craft is expected to weigh and
ponder things unweighable and im-
ponderable. Usually he must content
himself with recording his personal,
prejudices and the fact that the art-
ists of the evening accorded or did
not accord with these. Occasionally,
however, he has the rare good fortune
to hear a concert which transcends
this bias and seems to set an artistic
standard of its own. Such a concert
was that given last night in Hill Audi-
torium by Bartlett and Robertson,
the British Duo-Pianists.
This concert was our sixth hearing
of this brilliant team and was worthy
of their reputation and previous
efforts. The balance of their artistry,
the accuracy of their rhythm, the dy-
namic oneness which made it impos-
sible to tell which was playing the
dominant strain without looking at
the keyboard were never more in evi-
dence. Their mastery of style, class-
ic, romantic and modern, as well as
of many and diverse national schools,
was complete and practically flaw-
less. Their separate and collaborate
technics were, a few missed notes to
the contrary, worthy of any solo vir-
tuosi. That this review is rapidly be-
coming a rave is their doing not ours.
To enumerate the program would
be a great mistake for time and space
do not permit their entire excellence
to be recorded here; especially not-
able was the Bach Sonata in E-flat
and the Jesu, My Heart's Joy which
followed it. They achieved alike a
clarity and emotional quality which]
illuminated the polyphony of the mas-
ter and pleased the most discriminat-
Interesting to the musicians in their
audience was the artists' playing 'of
Debussy's En blanc et noir, No. 1,
which opened the second half of the
program. This was a new Debussy to
many, in that the foundations for
modern music which he helped lay
were more clearly visible through the
duo-pianist's interpretation than is
generally the case. Debussy's senuous
Lindaraja provided a splendid foil for
Milhaud's Brazihitn Dance which won
an ovation from the audience. Mil-
haud seems to have found the secret
of the much sought combination of
serious contemporary music with
popularity. Said secret being the use
of folk tunes and rhythms as a base
for emotional appeal. Certainly Mr.
and Mrs. Robertson realized this fact
in their interpretation.
Concluding the program was Lee
Pattison's arrangement for two pianos
of the orchestral score of the Corona-
tion Scene from Boris Goudounov.
That the artists were almost success-
ful in their imitation of the orchestra
without sacrificing their artistic in-
