French Canadian Paper
Not Representative . . .
REQUENTERS of the University Li-
brary's periodical room during re-
cent weeks may have come upon the French-
language weekly newspaper, Le Nationaliste et
Le-Devoir.-If they read it and believed what they
read, they now have a completely false impres-
$ion of the true feelings of the majority of
French Canadians.
Editorials in the Montreal publication, while
pro-Vichy are anti-American and even anti-
British. They also display anti-democratic ten-
dencies. .The paper represents an extremist,
minority section of French Canadian .opinion.
It opposes the teaching of the English language
in schools in the Province of Quebec and advo-
cates a separatist state for Quebec.
With the controversy over conscription again
coming to the fore in Canada, Le Nationaliste et
Ze Devoir has taken to crusading against this
necessary war measure. Its columns have been
filled with statements upon statements calling
for the rejection of any such movse. It implies,
that French Canada will under no condition ac-
cept compulsory military service.
IN THE LAST WAR conscription was literally
forced on the French Canadian population.
At one time machine gun barricades lined the
streets of Quebec. This war it is different, how-
ever. Papers like Le Jour, another Montreal
weekly, regard conscription as a necessary evil.
They realize that Canada is in the war not only
to aid her mother country but to preserve the
Canadian way of life. The largest French Can-
adian daily paper, Montreal's Le Canada, has
attacked the uncompromising attitude of Le Na-
tionaliste et be Devoir on numerous occasions.
The great danger, of course, is that we Ameri-
cans will be misled into believing that this small
but vociferous minority that controls Le N4tion-
aliste et Le Devoir expresses the sentiments of
French Canadians. Some may even accuse them.
of harboring views that hamper the Dominion
war effort.
FORTUNATELY, the more than three million
French Canadians are wholeheartedly be-
hind the Dominion of Canada's war effort. They,
with the editors of Le Jour, Le Canada and other
progressive papers are fully awake to the threat
to the democratic way of life. The anti-demo-
cratic forces operating among them are noisy
but lack definite popular support. French Can-
ada is as solidly in the Democratic Front as the
United States. -George W. Sallade
Col. ul hienberg's AcquitC d
A court-martial at Columbus, 0., has found
Col. H. C. Kress Muhlenberg, retiring Air Corps
officer and former commander of Hickam Field,
Hawaii, not guilty of violating the articles of
war. The charge against him was that he had
unduly criticised the military operations of the
Government in a talk before the Curtiss Flying
Club, following the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Col. Muhlenberg's acquittal is a good sign. It
means that the Army is going to think twice
before it invokes severe penalties on officers
who state honest opinions based on what they

believe to be the truth. It recognizes that there
is room for disagreement ad that 1o one has

The Reply Churlish
by TOUCHSTONE
FEW NOW ARE WE, the contemporaries of
old Denis Flanagan, he of the vagrant ways,
the excesses of beer, the hammers and sickles
drawn on houses of worship. Life, may I say to
those of you who remember, and understand,
just hasn't been the same since Dennis went
away. The old Wunsch, who now makes marks
on an attendance chart for Modern Drama, as
well as basking in the sunshine of his idol's
smile, the old Wunsch I say, would remember,
with poignance, old Deniss. J. Clisbee Allen, and
the Skipper Loud, who have been called dandy
fellows by old Flan, and who now read the law
at Lincoln's Field Quadrangle, studying to be
barristers, they remember the Irish. The Con-
nell girl, she who looms great and awesome on
the society pages, though I am not acquainted
with her because I have known but two or may-
hap three Delta Gammas during my speckled
career here, she too may find now and then a
lump in her throat as memory calls once more
to mind good old Denny. A few more perhaps,
Johnny Rookus, who now drives a hack for the
love of the game, one Art Hill, sports writer and
marine, Joseph Walker, unclassified, Gene Grib-
broek, soon of the briny deep, and myself - we
are those who remember what we sometimes
refer to fondly as "those days" when fine Flan-
nagan was hereabouts.
NOW DENNES, because he has always resented
the fact that I cannot spell his name cor-
rectly, or for some other reason perhaps best
known to himself, has not seen fit to write me
a letter lo these many weeks. I have decided
to "beard the lion in his den," and write this
letter now to old Flanhagan, printing it thus
because I know he resents such gestures, and be-
cause he will perhaps write me a hoy there
whutcha doing? letter in return, berating me for
my lack of good taste. Also I feel obligated to
speak for us all, us whom he left'behind, for to-
night I, and many other nights, all of us, are
lonesome for the sight of Our Own Dennes.
You will excuse this undue display of your
name, oh Flainigen, but tonight there are few to
talk to, few even to villify, and backward through
the years I have travelled in my mind's eye to
those days ere you had gone to Gehenna and
52nd Street, to those blazing days beneath the
scorching Ann Arbor sun, to those cold blue
nights in the sharp wintery air of Ann Arbor,
and to those interminable dreary hours, unable
to leave the bivouack, seated on a campstool
all through the rainy season in Ann Arbor, and
as might be expected of a man who has been sep-
arated from an old safari mate, I miss you, Denis.
Irv Guttman just walked in, he is working for
a chain of department stores, the names of
which I cannot print here, but he too sends his
best, Flahn. Hill is here too, and he doesn't
know what to write a sports column about, but
sends his best too. Seems almost as if the magic
of your name has called them once again to
the rallying spot, as it was in the old days when
we rode hell bent for leather, the sharp olasl
of our hooves ringing out through the still night,
and echoing back to us from far off hills, as
though another troop were advancing to the
fray.
N OTHING MUCH in the line of news, old
Falnigan. We got another issue of Perspec-
tives out last Sunday, but it was hard to
read aside from the ideological material contain-
ed therein, inasmuch as person or persons un-
known forgot to proof diverse pages, which
brought down Norman Anning on my head as
per schedule, and did cause the author of the
page 12 article to wax wroth. Burns has some
200 pages done on his novel, and on mine I have
18 not counting the graph I had to cut. You
have by now read about the finals and the
Memorial Day commencement coming up, as I
understand you are still as always a faithful
and kindly reader of these pages. Had a card
from Swados about reviewing his sister's book,
which I will do if you see him and tell him to
send me a copy, as I have lost the card. Maybe
if things break right here I will get to the Big
Town, and we will form a Colony, except Swados
is living in Brooklyn, and you know what that

makes him, as well as the political clash between
you two. My best to him, and Billy, anal to Joe
Gies if you see him. Tell them I asked about
them, and that things are also not the same since
they went away. In my own slovenly way, I'm
afraid I am getting old, Flagganan. I hope you
will write me, even adversely. It gets lonesome
here sometimes, although people try hard. Most
of my friends are professors. So long until soon.
The Washingiton
Merry "Go-,Round
By DREW PEARSON and ROBERT S. ALLEN
WASHINGTON-Representative Adolph Sab-
ath, chairman of the House Rules commit-
tee, got an earful of cheering news about plans
for succoring war-hit little business during his
talk with the President. The President told the
Illinoian that two measures are in the works:
(1) "Spreading out" of war production by
mandatory sub-contracts to the thousands of
small firms being forced to the wall because
of material shortages and curtailment of civil-
ian goods production.
(2) RFC "distress" loans to enable such
firms to finance additional facilities needed
for war work.
The President told Sabath that going to the
rescue of little business will be one of the first
jobs tackled by Donald Nelson in his new capa-
city as war production czar. Nelson is ideally
equipped for this job, the President said, be-
cause of his sympathetic attitude toward the
problems of little business men growing out of
the war emergency.

TO THE EDITOR
Why Tag Days?
To the Editor:
ATTENTION: All organizations launching
"tag days" and drives for funds.
According to front-page items appearing in
The Daily of the last few days, I see that a group
of various qampus organizations is sponsoring
a four-day drive to sell ten-cent defense saving
stamps and booklets. This is a noble gesture,
and I heartily believe that we all should take
part in the defense campaign whether by buy-
ing ten-cent stamps or $18.75 bonds. There are
those of us who have already started saving
booklets or who have purchased bonds and who
will not wish to buy the ten-cent stamps. It
seems to me unfair'and very unwise to discrim-
inate by the use of tags these latter persons,
especially as their contributions were made not
for the purpose of flaunting their benevolence
and patriotism in the face of the rest of the
public. By all means, carry out the drive, but
eliminate the tags.
While on this subject, I should like to say a
few heart-felt words on the subject of tag days
in general. I will not dispute the worthiness of
the causes represented in any case. However,
the frequency of charitable demands is exceed-
ing reasonableness and the limits of our purses.
There is a considerable group of undergraduates'
graduate students, and young staff members
whose incomes are scarcely sufficient to cover
the essentials of decent living, and who are
about driven to the point of launching a tag
day in their own behalf by the demands of
give, give, give! To enumerate only a few of
these: Community Fund, Old Newsboys' Fund,
Star Commonwealth, Disabled Veterans, Red.
Cross, Infantile Paralysis Fund, Tuberculosis
Fund, Galens', U. of M. Camp Fund, U. S. O.,
and now defense saving. I repeat, all worthy
causes! Yet, how many persons who give to
these cannot 'afford to go to camps (or to send
members of their families), who do not get
proper medical attention because they are afraid
they cannot meet the costs, and who themselves
are not properly clothed and fed? To me, it
seems more important to practice charity at
home and keep one's self and family off the re-
lief roles, instead of adding more victims by the
embarassingly-publicized methods of collecting
money.
GIVE, if you can and all you can afford! But
don't make life miserable by hounding every
persons who does not wear a tag by accosting
him on the average of every 100 feet for four
days! And why tags at all? -- L. A. Gillilan,
(Research Fellow)

ROTH STRING QUARTET
Quartet in D Major, Op. 76, No. 5....... Haydn
Quartet in .F Major ...................... Ravel
Quartet in A minor, Op. 41, No. 1 .. Schumann
The world renowned Roth String Quartet last
night inaugurated the second of Ann Arbor's
Annual Chamber Music Festivals in the Rack-
ham Auditorium with one of the most beautifully
played concerts Ann Arbor has ever been host to.
It was with sincere satisfaction that we saw that
this new musical endeavor would be continued
this year, for the plight of chamber music in this
country at the present time is, unfortunately,
rather sad. Of the thousands 'of concert-goers
who know well the themes of most of the great
orchestral works, and can name a dozen sym-
phony orchestras and their conductors, only a
handful know even one string quartet. And
what makes this situation all the more deplor-
able is that this most neglected, and even de-
spised, medium is the highest form of music we
possess.
This statement will probably meet with a
storm of protest, yet it is the truth. There are
two invincible arguments to support it. First,
and paradoxical as it may seem, is the very sim-
plicity -of the string quartet, which limits the
composer from the start in his means of ex-
pression. He has not the various timbres, the
range and volume (and the collection of ear-
splitting noise-conjurers usually found in the
timpani section) of the modern orchestra. He
has but 16 strings to utilize. Therefore his music,
his thematic material and its development, must
be absolutely pure; it must have meaning and
depth or its sterility will be at once apparent.
Because of its very nature the string quartet is
its own judge of the music it is asked to per-
form: If the music be false the medium will be
incapable.
Secondly, every great composer, almost with-
out exception, from Haydn through Mozart, Bee-
thoven, Schumann, to Brahms, has reached his
highest development in the string quartet. Not
only in the form itself, which with every com-
poser has attained its fullest expansion and cap-
ability of expression in the string quartet, but in
the utterance of their most sublime feelings and
thoughts, their deepest and most subtle expres-
sion, have the great masters found this medium
the ultimate after figuratively bleeding dry all
other instrumental media.
A eulogy of the Roth Quartet here would be
useless, for perfection speaks for itself. I can
only say that last night's concert was the finest
ensemble playing I have ever heard. Each mem-
ber of the quartet an individual artist of the
highest calibre, they form together an ensemble
so perfect in its functioning as to seem one
huge instrument. Absolute unison marks their
every attack, every phrase, every dynamic
change, and even the slightest mordent in a
Haydn quartet; (hei'r balance, flexible and

Students and Faculty, College of

The attention of students and facul-
ty is called to the following regula-

It should be noted that a report
of X (Absent from Examination) does
not guarantee a make-up examina-
tion. An instructor must, in fairness
to those who take the final examina-
tion at the time announced for it,
give make-up examinations only to
students who have a legitimate reas-
on for absence.
