Social Equality
THE LOWER HOUSE of the New York State
Legislature advanced the position of social
equality last week when it passed an anti-dis-
crimination law by a large majority. The Ives-
Quinn bill, assured of State Senate confirmation
by statements of both party leaders, sets up a
,permanent commission agamin5t discrimination in
employment.
A five member agency charged with eliminat-
ing biased employment on grounds of race, creed,
color, religion or national origin will have the
power to issue orders enforceable in New York
State courts. Certain unfair practices have been
specifically declared unlawful by the act, and
imprisonment and fine penalties for refusal to
obey provisions of the bill have been set up.
Coming as it does shortly after a court
decision in the same state upholding the
right of newspapers to refuse discriminatory
advertising, it is an indication of a significant
trend. Definite action advancing those demo-
cratic ideals which have so long enjoyed little
practical application is being taken by the
states as well as the national government.
The position taken by the people of the State
of New York on, the Ives-Quinn bill can well
serve as encouragement to Americans through-
out the nation. It is from the people that the
impetus nust come for true democratic prac-.
tice.

Red Cross Drive
WE WOULD all do everything possible for our .
relatives, friends and sweethearts in ser-
vice. If someone overseas were to send us a
letter of request we would not hesitate to des-
patch the requested article to them.
But there are certain things we cannot do
for them personally, certain things which re-
quire immediacy and proximity, such as entei-
tainment in hours of relaxation and communi-
cation in the event they are taken prisoner of
war.
The Red Cross attempts to do these and
n.any other things for military personnel. It
also serves civilians on the home front in times
of catastrophe. But in order to function the
Red Cross must have monetary support. It
is up to us to provide this support.
The campus drive, organized by the League
and the Union, will begin today and will
extend throughout the month. When you are
approached for a contribution, give as much
as you can, afford-and more.

ONE OF THE chief objections to extending the
voting age in this country to include the 18-
to-21-year-old group is the travesty of democ-
racy that traditionally marks student elections
on college campuses. The lack of interest on
the part of the student body in these elections
and the corrupt practices in which the candi-

By BERNARD ROSENBERG
ERIC RUSSELL BENTLEY'S brilliant criti-
cism has reached full fruition in his first.
book, "A Century of Hero Worship." This work
commends itself unmistakably to -the student
of Western thought. Under the author's guid-
ance one can observe in it meticulous examina-
tion of what he calls "heroic vitalism" as exem-
plified by Carlyle, Nietzsche, Wagner, Shaw, D.
H. Laurence, Spengler and Stephen George.
The blurb warns-and Bentley himself repeats
the injunction--that we ought not to look for
any facile means of equating this philosophy and
fascism. Yet, shortly after the book appeared,
and it might as well have been entitled "A Study
In Ambivalence" because Bentley tried to show
that each of his subjects was split between demo-
cratic and autocratic impulses, Sterling North-
usually a percipient critic-wrote an article in
The Washington Post which was a total mis-
conception of that thesis. Basing his argument
in part on Bentley's analysis, he drew the oppo-
site conclusion from it. His reasoning goes like
this: the heroic vitalists, that is, roughly, those
thinkers who exalt virility and believe in the
great man theory for variously psychotic reas-
ons, were Romantics; Romanticism de-empha-
sizes reason and so does fascism; ergo, heroic
vitalism, romanticism, and fascism are all the
same.
This is an altogether unacceptable gener-
alization. True, much was made of personal
passions during the Romantic era-but they
were above all directed in humanitarian and
revolutionary channels. Concern with hu--
man rights came above any other to men like
Hugo in France, Goethe in Germany, Burns
in England, and Thoreau in America. When
else could a Byron have dedicated his life
to the liberation of Greece, a Shelley have
come forth with his heretical pronuneciamen-
toes, a Hood have written "The Song of the
Shirt?"
THIS was the period during which William
Godwin affirmed his belief in Socialist ten-
ets-which inspired such novels of purpose as
"Caleb Williams" that, in turn, fired the imagi-
nation of Wordswoth and Coleridge who, until
the Reign of Terror, were heart-felt defenders
of the French Revolution. Could an age irre-
deemably infused with reactionary ideas have
produced a paper on "The Pernicious Effects
Which Arise From The Unnatural Distinc-
tions Established In Society"-such as that
written by Mary Wollstonecraft?
Release from the cold impersonality of neo-
classicism did involve less worship of reason
and the intensification of "sensibility," But,
this was not wholly to the bad. A good case has
been made out more than once, notably by Jac-
ques Barzum, arraigning neo-classicism on the
grounds that it was too conservative. Pro-
fessor Bernbaum says of this epoch that it
believed "the proper study of mankind was
Man-a dualistic creature, capable of virtue
and reason, but addicted to vice and folly, and
therefore requiring for his salvation much disci-
pline. It was well that the state disciplined
him by force; the Church through prohibitions;
and literature through satire. "Such, we are told,
were the views of men in other respects as
different as Pope, Swift, Addison and Johnson-
who were the most admired and influential
writers of the age.
But notice the intellectual dead-end to which
we have been brought. The scholars tell us that
Romanticism was reactionary in that it .acted
as the harbinger of fascism-and classicism was
reactionary in that its apostles favored sup-
pression of the people. Now, literary history is
nothing more than the alternation of classi-

Ann Arbor is reputed to have the most
beautiful spring in America-occasionally.

In spring a young man's fancy lightly turns

semester.

cism and romanticism. One follows after and
overlaps the other. If both systems obviate
the existence of liberal thought, so would any
mixture of them-which reduces it to a phan-
tasy, as unreal as all phantasies and twice as
pernicious.
BUT liberal thought is deal. It reappears in
every period-our own included. Though
some irrationality may be seen in William
James' views, they are basically democratic.
Though Robert Huchins' orientation is classi-
cal, his politics exceed the President's in pro-
gressivism. Our Founding Fathers were steep-
ed in classicism-no one of them more so
than Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of
Independence.
A host of similar examples can be cited. All
of them add up to the impossibility of system-
atizing thought around concepts that have
never been, and cannot be, satisfactorily defined.
Berzun has demonstrated-and this is one of
his better contributions to the subject-that
there are scores of conflicting definitions of
Romanticism.
Hard and fast, arbitrary compartmnentaliza-
tion of these movements and equation of them
with political cycles should be scrupulously
avoided. That this is not done often enough
comes largely from the current error in ap-
proach which begins by trying to make the
development of ideas as pat and exact as
mathematical problems. This they will never
be.
Current Movies
By BA1RRIE WATERS
At the State . ,
MOST AMERICANS are fools for Westerns,
regardless of the familiar pattern this type
of film has fallen into. The State's current ex-
hibit, "Tall In the Saddle," is a perfect example.
It possesses every ingredient you have come to
expect: a stolid, woman-hating hero. a band of
rustlers, a knock-down-drag-out brawl, and a
gun-fight or two. It is apparently what a large
section of the movie-going public wants and
"Tall In the Saddle" will probably prosper no
matter what some lowly scribe says.
Familiar a tune as it is, "Tall In the Saddle"
does occasionally contrive to get away from
routine, mainly by virtue of an unconventional
heroine. Ella Raines, one of the very best of
the new starlets who has yet to do an impor-
tant role, contributes an amusing portrait of
a masculine-mannered cow-girl with a base-
ment voice and a disconcerting ease with the
old six-shooter which is miles away from the
usual demure, sun-bonneted Western heroine.
The film's most diverting moments come from
her direction. John Wayne outdoes Gary
Cooper for sheer Western langour and seems
to be the small fry's idea of what the perfect
cowboy should be.
Accepting it for what it is, I really found noth-
ing to seriously object to, except for one agoniz-
ing moment when a pre-Goldwyn cowboy leaves
a poker game glibly remarking, "Include me out.
At the Michigan .
THE REDOUBTABLE BOB HOPE has returned
to the screen under the auspices of Sam
Goldwyn after a year's absence in the wilds of
radio work and overseas tours. The occasion for
his celluloid comeback, currently on view at The
Michigan, is "The Princess and the Pirate," as
wild a contrivance as you'll see in some time.
The wispy plot has Hope as a ham actor,
Sylvester the Great, who becomes involved in
pirate doings on the Spanish Main. He rescues
a captive princess from the designing clutches
of a mildly disturbing character called The Hook,
carried around a coveted treasure map tatooed on
his chest and engages in a beer-drinking contest
the like of which the P-Bell has never dreamed
of. He loses the girl in an ending you can see
coming a mile off, but which laid the majority
of Sunday's audience in the Michigan's collec-
tive aisle.
In support of Hope, newcomer Virginia Mayo
plays the princess competently and is as choice

a piece of scenery as you could find most any-
where. As Hope observes in the picture's best
line, she is "well-stacked."
The net result is a typical Hope-ian romp
that should please his most devoted fans no
end. The film's decidedly emphatic technicolor
and breakneck pace may prove a little exhaust-
ing to the less hearty, but on the whole it's a
consistently enjoyable piece.

VOL. LV, No. 88
Publication in the Daily Official Bul-
letin is constructive notice to all mem-
bers of the University. Notices for the
Bulletin should be sent in typewritten
form to the Assistant to the President,
1021 Angel Hall, by 3:30 p. in. of the day
preceding publication (11:30 a. m. Sat-
urdays).
N@pices
Automobile Regulations: All stu-
dents who possess automnobile pr-
mits are requested to report the 1945
license numbers of their cars to the
Dean of Students Office at their
earliest convenience. Students who
have received exemption cards or
who are entitled to exemption priv-
ileges should likewise report their
new license numbers to the Dean of
Students Office.
The following resolution was adop-
ted by the Regents at their meeting
on Dec. 29, 1944, and is now in force:
Resolved, That it is expressly for-
bidden hereafter that any University
department or official shall either
directly or indirectly approach an
employee of any other department
with inducements or suggestions the
natural result of which would be to
cause such approached employee to
desire transfer or to become dissatis-
fied with his or her present position.
In all cases where the transfer of an
employee is desired, the official de-
siring the transfer should first con-
sult the head of the department in
which the employee is currently serv-
ing, or, in cases of clerical positions,
the Office Personnel Committee.
Nothing herein shall be held to
modify the By-laws Sec. 3.06 with
respect to the duties and powers of
the Office Personnel Committee.
Identification Cards: All Identi-
fication Cards which were given out
during the Summer or Fall Terms
must be validated by the Dean of
Students for the Spring Term. Cards
which were not turned in at regis-
tration in Waterman Gymnasium
should be left at Rm. 2, University
Hall, at once. Cards which are not
validated will not be honored for the
Spring Term by University officials.
Eligibility Certificates: for the
Spring Term may be secured imme-
diately if the report of Fall grades is
brought to the Office of the Dean of
Students.
To the Members of the University
Council: The University Council
Meeting for March has been can-
celled.
To the Members, of the University
Senate: At the meeting of the Uni-
versity Council held Jan. 15 the fol-
lowing two recommendations of the
Standing Committee on Public Rela-
tions were approved:
1. That the individual members
of the Faculties of the University of
Michigan cooperate to the fullest
I extent with the University News Ser-
vice by informing the Director promp-
tly of honors received, contributions
published, andtdiscoveries made.
2. That greater use be made of the
facilities of the Extension Service in
taking to the people of the state pro-
grams dealing with little-known Uni-
versity activities. Two examples of
such activities, which can be drama-
tized readily, are the Speech Clinic
and the Fresh Air Camp.
