F we were drawing real paychecks

e something like this ...
HIS COLLEGE TOWN will today forget the
cares of a war-torn world.
Six- thousand miles awaythe bloodiest battles
4'the history of the world are being fought.
en--soldiers, civilians, woman and children-
e dying by thethousands under the uileashed
tath of the war-dos of another continent.
lsewhere there is starvation, poverty, misery.
+ivilization is in chaos. The darkness of the
iddle ages has again descended on' a world
owly dying of "too much civilization." His-
ri ns foresee only years of war, blood; more
sery, poverty for hapless peoples.
Bit here today all that is forgotten. There is
ily one war-a grid war. Taks and 'guns will
it be used; only a football. Millions of soldiers
llbe replaced by 22 grid gladiators. There will
e Rno League of Nations; only four striped-
:drted officials. Quarterbacks will be dictators

1azi Terrorism a
rutalizes France .
Nazi system struck so deeply as in
e past few weeks when countless Frenchmen,
nocent of any crime, have been executed be-
se Nazi General Stuelpnagel felt that firing
uad terrorism would halt the ever mounting
11 Qf assassinations among German troops oc-
ipying France. Terrorism has notstopped these
sassinations, and Nazi brutality found it im-
ssible to see any course other than increasing
e number of hostages executed per German
The most horrible of all these reprisals occur-
d this week after the shooting of a high rank-
g Nazi officer in the city of Nantes. Fifty
'enchmen, labelled "Communists and Jews" by
e Nazi authorities, were rounded up and sum-
arily executed. General Stuelpnagel threatened
execute fifty rpore if the assassins were not
prehended by Thursday evening. On the heels
this grisly communique came .a further report
om Occupied France to the effect that still
other German officer, this time a major, had
en shot.
'HE FUTILITY of these reprisals are only too
well demonstrated, and are even admitted
Vichy authorities, who have declared that the
assinations are being perpetrated not by

Hauf ler Attacks Interventionists
To the Editor:
THINK IT IS TIME to begin congratulating
a large group of our Michigan intellectuals
for their share in a job well done. The group in-
cludes Professor Slosson-who seems to be more
interested in making history than in writing it,
o Professor Ogden-who has done such yeoman
service by heating the impressionable young
minds of Freshman English students by using
warmongering Lewis Mumford' "Faith for Liv-
ing" as a textbook, and some 279 others who re-
cently signed a pledge which, although it did not
actually advocate a declaration of war, came so
near it that we would probably have less trouble
by declaring war than by attempting to live
under such hypocrisy.
These men have done a first-rate job. They
and such cohorts as Ralph Ingersoll and Henry
R. Luce and Dorothy Thompson have, with sec-
retarial efficiency, smeared every one who stood
in their way, and have proved again that any
time a country's rulers want to go to war, our
all-too-clever intelligentsia can find justification
for it. Today our befuddled nation has finally
stopped protesting very loudly against these
purported learned voices, has thrown up its
hands in weary surrender and has given carte
blanche to the warbirds to star a new generation
of Gold Star Mothers.
IT WAS ALL DONE on a beautifully executed
time schedule. Step-by-step they piped us
on, begging first only afew planes, then a couple
of bat'tered old destroyers, then a "defense" line
extending to England's backdoor, and now-
Wiley Winston pipes for blood, and his unpaid
agents reverberate the tuine. If some novice got
ahead of schedule, as young Cromwell did, there
was always President Roosevelt to save the day
by declaring: "I have said this before, but I shall
say it again, and again, and again, your boys
are not going to be sent into any foreign wars."
It was a great day for the cause when the Presi-
dent could stop speaking drivel like that.
And so today we are pounding hotly down the
road to war, while Professor Carlton Wells,
threshing about delightedly in the catnip he has
created, considers the academic question of
whether or not this is the precise moment to
put the obvious into words, and while young Bill
Baker and millions like him, too confused to de-
cide what course we ought to take, have 13aced
the matter in the lap of thegods-God Slosson,
God Ogden, God Roosevelt.
TIONS-without stint. These men and wo-
men have accomplished what they set out to do.
About all that is left for us who must do the
fighting is the grim anticipation that, if by some
strange coincidence we live through this, some-
day we will see this generation's breast-beating
intellectuals and would-be Paul Reveres classed
among the most harmful wreckers in the history
of our country. -ervie HIaufler

has not changed the attitude of most sports-
writers towards the outcome of the game.
Ego Muscleshooter, '41, a photographer for
the Michigan Daily, who happened to be on the
special Minnesota team train coming home from
Duluth where he visited his grandmother, took
a photograph of the 'jug as evidence. When
pressed for a statement, Muscleshooter ex-
plained, 'Honest, I didn't scalp no tickets."
The Minnesota Athletic Administratin could
not be contacted for a statement, as nobody on
The Daily staff had any telephone slugs. The
Michigan team was not interviewed on this mat-
ter, nor was Coach Crisler, as we hated to dis-
turb the boys the night before the game.

However, Rufus Ferndale, University of Minne-
sota sophomore who is here for the game, was
contacted'. In reply to a question of the authen-
ticity of the alleged jug-mutilation, Ferndale
replied, "I think it's a disgrace to the Big Ten,
but personally I'm a little wortied about the
outcome of the game. Have you got a dime for
a cuppa coffee?"
Michigan has not won the competition for
the jug since 1932, when the score was 3-0. The
1933 game resulted in a scoreless tie, and ever
since 1934 Michigan has been trying to return
the jug to its rightful owners.
Saniflush Froitzboinder, '42E, who was the
only student on State Street at 3 a.m. today,
said calmly, "The recoil mechanism is a hydrau-
lic brake to absorb the energy of the piston rod."
When pressed for further detail he disappeared
into a State Street bookstore.
At 6 a.m., Emile Gel6, Managing Editorof The
Daily, telephoned this reporter with the follow-
ing statement: "Kill that Brown Jug story;-it's
a fake!" However, the paper had already gone
to press and the reporters were in bed, so there
was nothing left to do but let it slip through.

Chinese Express Thanks
To the Editor:
versity of Michigan wishes me to express'
through your columns, our deep thanks for the
splendid response to our recent Double Ten Ball
held for United China Relief. We wish to an-
nounce, though somewhat belatedly, that the
results were very gratifying, that to date ,we
have received $507.00, and late donations are
still coming in. This result was attained in spite
of the fact that the date of our function had to
fall so early in the semester.
Let me interject here the reminder that the
exchange rate at present means the literal trans-
formation of $1 in American money into over
$20 in Chinese money.
We wish here especially to express our appre-
ciation for the support of the many distinguished
patrons, whose contributions were placed in a
special fund sent directly to United China Relief.
It is our wish too, to acknowledge publicly the
invaluable support, in our preparations, of a
host of kind friends, in particular Miss Ethel
McCormick, Miss Barbara McIntyre, and Miss
Dorothy Merki, all of the League, Dean Walter
B. Rea, Professor J. Raleigh Nelson, and others.
In no small measure, too, do we owe our thanks
to the Michigan Daily, for their splendid cover-
age of our plans.
THE BALL COMMITTEE is grateful and
wishes to thank those who have made so
many commending remarks about the Ball pro-
gram'on the evening of the tenth. The occasion
the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of our
Republic, was of deeper significance than usual
to us, and the fact that you sensed and shared
the appreciation of this feeling with us gave real
meaningfulness to our efforts. It was the symbol
of a spirit of real kinship that has come to be an
abiding tradition between our two nations. We'
fervently hope that this spirit, nurtured by fuller
cultural exchange between us, may remain vital
and mutually encouraging, through the difficult
years ahead.' We think that we, the Chinese
people, and you, the American people, do stand
on common ground. Here, t this great Ameri-
can educational institution to which we have
come, we have mutually proven it again and
again. And once more, we must say "thank
u." - Paul Lim-Yuen,

(Brass Ring and a free ride on The Washington
Merry-Go-Round to Jesse Jones, most powerful man,
next to Roosevelt, in washington.)
IF you gave the average voter three guesses as
to who is the most powerful man in the gov-
ernment next to Roosevelt, he would probably
name the vice president, or the secretary of state,
or the chief justice of the Supreme Court. Not
one out of ten would hit the bull's eye by naming
the secretary of commerce.
Officially the secretary of commerce rates
next to last in the Cabinet. He sits only one
notch higher than the secretary of labor. But
unofficially and actually, this relatively obscure
Cabinet job rates right next to Roosevelt-all
due to the shrewdness of the man who sits in
the commerce chair-Jesse Holman Jones of
Houston, Texas.
This is all because Jesse, when offered the job
of commerce secretary, said he would take it only
if permitted to remain as federal loan adminis-

trator. And Roosevelt, thinking Congress would
never approve, said Jesse could have both jobs
if Congress passed a resolution to that effect.
AND CONGRESS-after some adroit back-
slapping by Jesse-immediately passed the.
resolution. Soinow he not only sits in the Cabi-
net, but controls the purse strings of the greatest
spending program ever undertaken by any gov-
ernment, in any country, at any time in history.
To get a faint idea of Jesse Jones' power, con-
sider the fact that in normal times the Securities
and Exchange Commission is busy passing on
flotations of stocks and bonds for construction
of new plants and all kinds of business expan-
sion. But now the SEC is idle and Wall Street
in the doldrums. All the plant expansion is
financed by the Government. And Jesse Jones
is the czar who shells out the dough.
Hoover Holdover
Jones is the only Roosevelt Cabinet member
who is a holdover from the Hoover Administra-
tion. (Henry L. Stimson was brought into the
Roosevelt Cabinet after serving under Hoover,
but.only after being out of office seven years.)
It was Herbert Hoover who first appointed Jesse
to the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, and

amazing new concoction, the
main ingredient of which is corn.
This gentle opus, prepared for the
annual meeting of the Press Club,
bears the tongue-twisting title of
"The Bingham Bingles of Birming-
ham." Journalist Brumip success-
fully lampoons the California Cham-
ber of Commerce, the Dies Commit-
tee, and all melodramatic enterprise.
The stilted language heightens the
effect of the satire, and the third
act has an interesting twist which
makes the audience completely un-
derstknd Brumm's tongue-in-the-
cheek efforts. The prize remark oc-
curs early i the first act when
Mazda proclaims that "Grandma is
restless." At all times remindful of
a high school Senior Play, everyone
had a swell time.
The plot is intentionally confus-
ing. We have six happily mated
young couples leering into the foot-
lights when the final curtain falls.
Nazi agents, California rangers, news-
paper reporters wander about with
the greatest of discomfort. Profes-
sor Brumm apparently left no stone
unturned to keep things moving at
a rapid pace.
HUGH NORTON'S direction was
excellent, giving further evidence
of his versatility. He sinks his teeth
into his role of the father. Veitch
Purdom fluttered her way through
as the mother, a job well done. The

ently having a cooperatively good
