Caution Urged
For 'Black Friday'

. . .


FRIDAY, NOV. 22, is "Black Friday,"
Ftraditional day of warfare between
the freshman and sophomore classes. Tonight,
at 7:30 p.m. in th7e Natural Science Auditorium,
the frosh will hold their organization meeting
to discuss plans for the occasion and tomorrow,
at the same place and at the same time, the
sophs will hold theirs. Interclass rivalry is really
getting under way.
But there is more to say about "Black Friday"
than merely the fact that it will take place.
'A warning should be given to members of both
the Classes of '43 and '44 to make the day suc-
cessful. In the past decade it has not been
noticeably so, for, when the spirit was not there
nothing happened and when the spirit was
there damage was done.
WTE URGE all underclassmen to take "Black
Friday" seriously, attend their respective
meetings and turn out on Nov. 22 for the great
Ann, Arbor "free-for-all." We know that they
will have a great deal of fun "depantsing" one
another, marching the streets singing victory
songs and doing all the other things which are
usually associated with that day.
Caution and care, however, must also be ad-
vised. There is no necessity of destroying prop-
erty or of putting local merchants or the Uni-
versity to any expense. Posters should not be
put up on any buildings, painted notices should
not be resorted to and great care should be
taken to prevent any sort of breakage.
NOST IMPORTANT of these "don'ts" has to
do with the dormitories. Back in 1937 a
group of sophomores attacked the Allen-Rumsey
Houses and were repulsed by fire hoses wielded
by freshman residents, and President Ruthven
had to be called to quell the disturbance. This
should not happen again. The dorms are Uni-
versity property and must be considered at all
times as neutral ground.
So come on out and have a good time, but.
don't forget to consider other people and the
importance of safeguarding their property.
--Albert Paul Blaustein
Released Convicts
Face Ostracism . .
tice" is a powerful story of crime
and punishment-a young man, a forgery, a
sentence, a release, a suicide.
So what? There are a million and one or
more other cases likethis. Exactly! What hap-
pens to all these people when they are released
either before or after sentence and thrown back
into society?
For sustenance, they look for some sort of
position, -any position, a job, any job. If for-
tunate they obtain work, but as soon as the
employer and fellow employes discover their
past, they are blacklisted. And so they trudge
the rounds once more.
T IS perfectly understandable why there is
discrimination, but unfortunately it is some--
times perverted. It is one of the human failings,
a tragedy in itself. Many of these "criminals"
are petty thieves, shop-lifters, forgers, first of-


Rumors that Wendell Willkie will be offered
a cabinet post or chairmanship of the Defense
Commission are just rumors and no more. Roose-
velt has no intention of unifying along such lines.
After the 1936 campaign, the President and
Alf Landon went out of their way to be friendly.
The mellow Kansan called at the White House
when he went to the Capital in December for
a Gridiron Club dinner, and a year later Roose-
velt appointed him a member of the U.S. dele-
gation to the Pan-American conference in Lima.
But with Willkie the situation is entirely dif-
Roosevelt deeply dislikes and distrusts him-
a feeling, incidently, that is strongly reciprocated
by Willkie.
Privately, the President believes that the GOP
standard bearer's campaign was motivated
chiefly by personal malice and went far out of
bounds of legitimate political warring in delib-
erate misrepresentation and distortion.
On his side, Willkie feels just as hotly regard-
ing Roosevelt. When Rev. John Carruthers,
visiting pastor of the Convent First Presbyterian
Church, Washington, suggested making peace
with Roosevelt, Willkie snapped, "I wouldn't
think of it. You can't trust him. I refuse to
have anything to do with him in any coalition
Note: Even if Willkie would accept a job,
Roosevelt has fought shy of creating a chairman
of the Defense Commission. To all such sug-
gestibns he has replied that he was boss of the
commission and intended to continue that way.
Merry Go Round
The Roosevelt campaign wagon came to rest
only after some bitter inside circle carnage.
To the Editor:
It was a disagreeable surprise to me to notice
that the University failed to observe Armistice
Day officially. It seems to me that in this in-
stitution where students are dismissed, presum-
ably to uphold the ideals of democracy, the
administration would certainly carry through
their patriotic aims and do all in their power
to recognize and maintain the tradition of
Armistice Day.
The student body itself shows very little pa-
triotism on its own part. To most students, the
Star-Spangled Banner holds no more signifi-
cance than the Dipsy Doodle. It is not often
that I have seen students stand at attention
of their own accord in the privacy of their
rooms or in public establishments, when they
hear the national anthem. Must we respect our
country only when bayonets are thrust in our
T man h p. -,,Pnt in tie niversitr of Mich-

Two of the President's closest advisers, Harry
Hopkins and Tom Corcoran, are at sword's
points . . . Republicans are wondering whether
there isn't something awfully significant about
Tom Dewey's majority in up-state New York. It
was more than 750,000 in 1938 while Willkie's
up-state majority was only 94,000. This, coupled
with the fact that Dewey did most of his cam-
paigning for Willkie in the west-not in New
York-makes some of the boys wonder whether
the young District Attorney wasn't just as glad
to have Willkie lose. After all, Willkie's defeat
leaves Dewey with a far better chance to take
the Republican nomination-and election-in
1944 . . . Friends are kidding Henry Wallace
about being disqualified for the job of vice-
president because, unlike Jack Garner, he does
not "strike a blow for liberty." After eight years
in Washington, Wallace does not drink,
European Appeasement
The story of imminent European peace deals
which floated around London, Berlin and Wash-
ington just before election was no myth. Inside
fact was that some very, very tentative ideas
had been discussed by Sir Samuel Hoare, British
Ambassador in Madrid, and a leader of the Brit-
ish appeasement group.
Since November 5 these ideas are dead. But
the motives behind them are extremely im-
R portant. Inasmuch as they may crop up again,
here is their background:
Ever since Hitler's proposed invasion of Eng-
land was frustrated last September, Nazi diplo-
mats have sent out feelers to the effect that
Germany now had almost the entire continent
of Europe and might be satisfied to drop the
war, leaving England to stick to its own islands.
This, of course, would be an excellent set-up
for Germany. Economically, she now has some of
the wealthiest areas of Europe under her thumb,
especially with the penetration of Rumania.
Her trading area, under the now rewritten map
of Europe, is vast and wealthy. Hitler could
well afford to sit tight for the time being and
concentrate on the development of these new
Such a peace, of course, meets no response
from the great majority of the British people,
nor the Government, and absolutely none from
Winston Churchill. However, it has been re-
ceived favorably by the little group of "City"
men (London's Wall Street) which encouraged
the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia so they
could get Czech factories, and who actually
lent money to Hitler after Munich.
Wall Street And Willkie
This group sees British factories blasted,
argues that it will take months to rebuild them,
and that meanwhile British trade will lose out to
the U.S.A. So this group has been encouraging
the backstage peace feelers with Berlin, via
Spain and Sweden.
Furthermore, all diplomatic reports indicate
that had Willkie been elected, this group would
have launched a strong drive for appeasement.
