Tag Day
For America . .
TOMORROW there's gping to be an-
other Tag Day on caipus.
But it will be without any of the traditions
behind similar drives for funds. As a matter of
fact, it will be the first campaign of its kind
ever to be held at this University or any other
in the entire nation.
The purpose of this drive is one that has been
in front of every American since last Dec. 7.
A war has been declared on the United States,
this war and its inciters must be fought, and its
fighting must be financed. Defense bonds are
the most direct way open to the ordinary civilian
desiring to aid his country in its time of sacri-
fice.
THE PURPOSE of tomorrow's Tag Day, there-
fore, is to sell enough defense 'stamp albums
so that every student and faculty member will
be a participant in the United States' greatest
effort. The albums, holding 50 10-cent stamps,
will be sold for a dime with one stamp already
mounted in every one. They are planned for fu-
ture purchasers of Series E defense bonds, which
mature in 10 yeais to $25 after an initial invest-
ment of $18.75.
The defense bond campaign is an emergency
development of the government's postal savings
plan in 1935. Up to 1941, Americans had placed
nearly $4,000,000,000 with the government, the
largest single investment in any security. But
the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor has awak-
ened further interest in America from Ameri-
cans and the amount collected since that surprise
raid is overwhelming testimony to its citizens'
faith.
The stamps which will be sold tomorrow rep-
resent the smallest possible contribution to the
war effort that any man or woman can make.
Other stamps in 25-cent, 50-cent, $1 and $5 de-
nominations also offer a quick and convenient
way to exchange your current savings for defense
bonds.
N ITS BROAD ASPECTS, tomorrow's drive is
designed to introduce the University of Mich-
igan to the "savings habit." Ann Arbor stores
will ask customers to "Take your change in de-
fense stamps" while campus orgapizations will
contribute individually in addition to their work
in the Tag Day campaign.
Adopted ,by the Federal government as the
most fit syniboi for this defense-bond drive, the
minute-man is a veicran of America's first great
trial. At that time he made his stand with a
flintlock and powder-horn, but his duties were
relatively simple. Today he needs guns, tanks,
planes, battleships, and production lines. It's
up to you to see that he isn't forced to fight with
a flintlock again.

TO THE EDITOR
To the Editor:
WITH the increasing number of college boys
in army camps, university women are con-
jecturing about the possibility of a "woman's
world." Inasmuch as the educated logically are
the leaders in this country, and the men will not
return to colleges for a number of years, women
will have an educational advantage. In spite of
this (remote, I admit) possibility of a "woman's
world," women students have not been accepting
the responsibility that has necessarily been
thrust upon them. In general, university women
may be classified into three distinct groups,
only one of which approaches the ideal.
The first group is determined to "have one
last fling," to forget all of the ugliness that is to
come. These women want to marry the "boy
next-door" before he goes away, and consider
returning to school-perhaps. They feel strongly
about the war, but they are inclined to drama-
tize instead of acting constructively.
Another group does not concern itself with
the war effort. They do not listen to news
broadcasts or interrupt their study for a blue-
book to listen to President Roosevelt, because
they are sublimely confident that we will win
eventually, and that they can then be the leaders
in a possible reconstruction.
THE LAST GROUP most nearly approaches
the ideal. They evidence an active interest
in news developments without becoming hyster-
ical or dramatic. They plan to study even
harder than before and plan to enlist in defense
training courses. Although they may never have
to make a practical use of that first-aid train-
ing, they will be much more content to stay in
the miniature university world if they believe
that they are actively aiding in the war effort.
The university woman must realize that her
actions should be motivated not by what she
wants but by what the United States needs. If
each of us thinks only of that wedding which
must be postponed, America will not be able to
present a strong, united front. It is quite possi-
ble that women students will accept their re-
sponsibility within a short period of time. Many
were blindly patriotic at the outbreak of war,
determined to leave school to become air-raid
wardens. Now that the first shock has passed,
many realize the importance of a sublimation
in work and study, not only for the United
States but also for themselves.
-- Anonymous Coed
A Contemptible Outrage
FOR PURE unadulterated gall, 42 members
of the United States Senate have set an all-
time record even for that body, never altogether
free from brash venality.
With every man, woman and child in America
being urged and forced where necessary, by law,
to make sacrifices that we may win the war,
with the youth of our land offering up their
lives-these Senators take advantage of the
people's concentration elsewhere to vote them-
selves fat pensions!
With the most disgraceful exhibition of legis-
lative poltroonery ever written on our books by
their trading with price bills and dodging of the
inflation issue; with taxation soaring because
of their selfishness and ignorance; with the
people asked to bend their backs to a new load
of a hundred billion dollars to save this Nation-
all they can think of is the fattening of their
own purses.
They want a pension-and have voted for it-
because they are "employees" of the Govern-
ment!'
SINCE WHEN did the Congress of the United
States become employees of the Government?
Have they played the role of White House bell
hops so many years, begging for hand-outs,
and trading what principles they pretend to
possess for patronage, that they now consider

themselves employees?
Congress IS-or should be-the Government-
one branch of it. Senators and Representatives
are the representatives of the people and, there-
fore, ARE the Government.
This congressional pension racket has been
attempted before but has been burned away
each time by the white hot anger of an aroused
people.
But the racketeers are at it again, in the hope
that the public mind and heart and soul must
needs be elsewhere in this darkest hour of our
national life.
So grab while the grabbing is good!
Compared to some, mjiembers of the United
States Senate, Barabbas. was an. honest man.
He did not pretend to be a statesman and a
gentleman.
The Detroit Free Press
has reached Michigan. University professors will
talk to soldiers in nearby army camps to make
clear the reasons for' fighting.
The second criticism is refuted when one ex-
amines the list of University faculty members
who will speak to the soldiers. They are Profes-
sors Lawrence Preuss of the political science de-
partment, Dwight Dummond, Howard Ehrmann,
Robert MacDowell and Preston Slosson of the
history department. These men are competent
teachers whom students enjoy hearing. Super-
ficial chauvinistic propaganda will not be used
by these men. The results of the program will
undoubtedly be greater understanding and clar-
ity of purpose in fighting. Our soldiers will not
only know how to fight but why they are fight-
ing.
We have watched the spread of the idea of

The Reply Clwrlish
by TOUCHSTONE
am not addicted to press agenting for anyone,
but like most of us I am passing fond of good
hot music, and when there is a guy available
not far away who plays same about as well as
any headliner-who in fact is not a headliner
entirely by his own free choice-I am glad to
pass the word on, in the twin hope that he will
make some money, which he rates, and that I
may have a chance to sit somewhere around
here and listen to him play some more.
Some of you may have read mycolumn last
year about Paul Hillman, the blind accordion
player I heard in Adrian one week-end. I
caught him there again last Saturday night,
and this time he'll be there long enough for
somebody around here to do something about
it. Last year he was heading back to St. Louis,
where his wife and kids live, and he didn't know
for sure when he'd be back. Now he tells me he'll
be in Adrian until about the middle of March,
and that means he's available, and Paul being
available means that instead of buying disks of
schmaltz bands, the lovers of honest jazz in
Ann Arbor can hear somebody who is in his own
way the equal of Art Tatum. Hazel Scott, or
Teddy Wilson any day of the week.
DON'T KNOW for sure how these things
happen. I can talk to the social chairman
in my own house, and plug for Paul to play at
one of the dances. But names mean a lot to
social chairmen, and besides I'm afraid that if
Paul played for a dance there wouldn't be any
dancing-people would sit down on the floor
and listen. Right enough, too. When I heard
Tatum this fall in New York, playing a night
spot job at Kelly's Stables, there wasn't even a
Hill Auditorium cough to disturb the quiet.
When a clientele which is for the most part.
half-seas-over can keep from hiccuping or drop-
ping a pin during an hour of fine piano work,
that's music. Paul deserves the same treatment.
He doesn't get it all the time at the Schoolcraft
in Adrian, because of course there is no cover
charge, and the beers are only a dime, and some
of the Saturday night crowd like their Popo-
catepeti, as my worthy confrere would say, but
when Paul rides on Milenberg Joys, or Copen-
hagen, or any of the numbers he calls pigeon-
hole tunes, because when a band wants to find
out just how good it is, it must take on one of
those great standards as the test, the joint
jumps, merchants and all.
MAYBE a lot of what's good about Paul comes
from that very self-chosen lack of big name
in his makeup. During the day he carries his
up along and plays on the streets of Adrian,
but his wage rate per block would knock any
union scale right on the head. His comments
on the great swing musicians are mostly to the
effect that success standardizes their product.
He admires the best of them for what they
were, and for what they could be if they didn't
have a steady public that demanded a certain
fixed type of stuff from them. Paul himself has
chosen music as the important thing-he plays
jazz the way it gets played only in joints, neverI
in smart spots. There is no sorghum in Paul,
but on the other hand there is none of that
esoteric toughness affected by lesser lights.
When finally the evening begins to taper off,
Paul plays tunes for people to sing, and though
he will rag anything schmaltzy earlier in the
evening, he will sing along with the fat lady
who has the fine soprano voice, the bar tenors,
all the people who like to sing just before we
all clear out and go home. A very healthy com-
bination of artist and human being, Paul, and
a fine person to know and listen to. Well, I
can't just go on talking about him, because in
the last run you can't write words that really
tell anything about jazz, but I'd like to see
him come here for awhile and play for us. He
asked me what about street musicians, and I
didn't know, I'd appreciate a letter from some-
one in authority about that, and I'll pass it
along to Paul. To the beer garden owners, I
say you can't beat him as a draw card once the
grapevine starts working. And to the social
chairman I say his address is Paul Hillman,
Accordionist, Schoolcraft Hotel, Adrian, Michi-

gan. So long until soon.

WASHINGTON-Charles Augustus Lindbergh
will remember for a long time his talk with
Secretary of War Henry Stimson on the ques-
tion of re-entering the Army. It was kind of
an interview.
When the America First champion wrote to
Lt.-Gen. "Hap" Arnold, Army air chief, offering
his services to the Army, he was very hopeful
of regaining the colonelcy he had angrily dis-
carded in the heat of his isolationist crusade. He
wrote this letter, instead of formally applying
for reinstatement of his commission, on the ad-
vice of certain friends, some of them in the Air
Corps.
They counseled Lindbergh that he first feel
out his prospects before going on record as ask-
ing for a commission.
THE TALK took place in Stimson's office,
where the balding flier, hat in hand, sat
across the desk from the veteran cabinet pmem=
