organizations as the Union League
Club, the Harvard Club of New York,
the National Association of Manufac-
turers, and the United States Cham-
ber of Commerce.
Her book on. Russia, "The New
Russia," will be remembered as an
inspiration for Sinclair Lewis' (her
husband) argument with Theodore

Mimes Will Assail Campus
with New Bacchanalian Ditty
By S. R. WALLACE
Bottoms up, Michigan-the UMimes'
Union Opera this year will introduce
it new drinking song to all good fel-
lows whose minds and throats the
great god Bacchus whets!
"Take A Numbor" = will feature
"To Michigan," grad student Ken-
neth Summerfelt's lyrical brain child
which he has dedicated to all those
on campus whose "joy is in the cups."
In hopies that the song will take
its place with the past operas' lasting
favorites, like "When Night Falls,
Dear," the Union Opera, music com-
mittee has arranged fIor the Varsity
Men's Glee Club to sponsor its de-
but in a special scene written around
Summerfelt, who is the student
music director, will be remembered
for his "Michigan Memories," a song
highlighting last year's "Four Out of
Five." Other airs to be included in
"Take A Number" will take the form
of popular tunes, waltz numbers and
some modeled after the Gilbert and
Sullivan type. Harry Bliss' profes-
ional pit orchestra, will accompany
all the musical acts and the dance
Attempts are being made to popu-
larize this year's opera songs all over
the country. Charles Bowen, '41,
chairman of the music committee,
has sent copies of the potential fav-
rites to big-name band leaders with
the request that they introduce them
over national broadcasts. If these
plans fail to materialize, the com-
mittee hopes to contact an outstand-
ing publishing house in the East ar-
ranging for perhaps an issue of the
new songs in book form. "Four Out
of Five's" hit tune last year, "I'm
In Love With A Dream," may be
published in the near future.
It will be recalled that the Opera
is a strictly all-male production, and
for that reason the committees this
year decided to have at least one song
purely masculine-thus the. drinking
song-although how limited to male
'tudents it wvill turn out to be is a
questionable point. Assisting Bowen
in music are. Gordon Hardy, '41,
Fussell Berg, '42, Robert Mix, '41L,
Glenn Brooks, '43, Robert Reed, #'41,

Even if Germany is defeated in
this war only a hopeless crippling
of her economic organization by the
victors or an equitable compromise
with pVer in the final treaty can of-
fer any basis for a lasting peace,
Prof. Benjamin Wheeler, of the his-
tory department, declared in an in-
A nation of the industrial mag-
nitude of modern Germany, he said.
will never accept economic subjuga-
tion from the world. The inevitable:
outcome of such an indecisive posi-
tion for the country would result
sooner or later in another attempt
to regain economic equality with or
supremacy over the rest of the world,
German victory, he emphasized,
certainly would mean a vast reor-
dering of_ the present economic na-
tionalisms in Europe into a conti-
nental economic unit which would in-
tegrate the present systems of each
of the nations, the whole system
probably under the domination of a
-entral German authority. That re-
rder ng, he pointed out, has been
he avowed purpose of the Nazis
since the inception of the present
While admitting that any predic-
:icns as to the status of post-war
Germany depend upon a multitude of
undecided factors, Professor Wheeler
asserted that even in case of defeat
any return to a republican govern-
ment similar to that under the Wei-
mar Constitution is highly improb-
able. The experience of the Ger-
man people, he said, would strongly
turn them against accepting any
Iimilar government and would, if
such a government were forced upon
them by the victors, prompt them
toward the same concerted effort to
break away as they have exhibited
in past years.
