AN EAR FOR AN EAR:
T hree-Century-Old Poem Poses
Urgent Problem for Today

A CENTURIES-OLD news item of pressing
current interest was recently uncovered by
this writer while thumbing through a bundle
of yellowed and tattered fragile sheets of a
small Spanish provincial newspaper published
in Burgos in 1656.
Appearing on the front of an issue dated in
that year is an account of a local feud that had
developed into an affair of disquieting propor-
tions in the village. According to the descrip-
tion of the situation offered by the anonymous
journalist-obviously a man not lacking in lit-
erary ability-the matter had gotten complete-
ly out of hand. It appears that a rivalry had
developed between the members of the local
literary group and the troops of a military
commission located during this period in Bur-
gos.
The original cause of the prolonged conflict
had evidently been long forgotten; but this
much was clear: the soldiers were grouped in
scornful opposition to the writers, and the lat-
ter group was fervently united in principle
against the professional troops. This was a
division of camps which outlined a renewal of
the classic rivalry for ultimate supremacy.
AT ANY RATE, the report continues, the an-
tagonism between the two elements had
reached such a fever pitch through the ex-
change of words (now barbed, now heated) that
the inevitable, violence at last occurred. As a
form of permanent insult to a literary gentle-
man whom he had been unable to match in
eloquence or wit, one of the soldiers had flash-
ed out his sword and had lopped off one of his
adversary's ears.
Word of the outrage spread immediately
among the writer's society and within the space
of the evening there was retaliation-in the
form of a severed military's ear. It was a mat-

ter of only a few hours before the battle was
joined by all members of the opposing factions.
Rather than considering any discussion among
the parties as the reasonable step, the rivals
were seeking ears on every street corner and in
the shadow of every darkened doorway.
The desperately high toll of these mementoes
claimed by both sides was what had prompted
the author of the article in question to dedi-
cate himself to a long, rhymed "editorial" on
the subject. It is evident in his lines that to
him the end of the world was clearly visible
in the insane outbreak of blind, senseless re-
taliation and counter-retaliation. It was his
sincere wish to effect an immediate end to the
brutalities; and to this end are dedicated the
verses in which he makes a calm appeal to
logic.
THE FINAL quatrain was what struck at the
present writer's heart with its ageless wis-
dom-a wisdom, incidentally, which seems to
be universally overlooked at this moment of
history in which we live. There is a parallel.
Our writers are still armed solely with the pen
today; but the awesome weapons of the world's
military have terrifying dwarfed the meagre
power it possessed centuries ago.
In view of the potentially disasterous conse-
quences of a decisive victory by the force that
represents the strength of the military today
in a world of obsolete atom-, present hydro-
gen-, and future cobalt bombs, these final four
lines, in translation, have an urgency to their
restrained appeal that we dare not ignore.
"Across the ages has continued
This polemic of the pen against the sword.
The point to keep in mind is:
'Will there be an ear intact to catch the
final word?'"
-Donald A. Yates

Successful Book Exchange
Deserves a New Sponsor

TF SALES VOLUME means anything, the
amount of business done by this semester's
book exchange would seem to indicate that stu-
dents are becoming more aware of the ad-
vantages of a non-profit used textbook service.
Sales this semester were approximately $1,-
200 more than they ever were previously. More
students are taking advantage of the Student
Legislature sponsored Exchange.
But just as students are beginning to patron-
ize the Exchange, its sponsor is counting off its
last days. What will happen to the Book Ex-
change? Will there be one next semester? If
there is, who will sponsor it? This semester's
results virtually demand that the Book Ex-
change be continued.
HE BOOK EXCHANGE is no doubt the most
worthwhile project in SL's dubious history,
as can be substantiated by a talk with any of
the students who save money by utilizing it.
University officials have recognized its value
with their cooperation in operating the Ex-
change each semester. For the last two Book
Exchange sales, the University assumed the ex-
pense of setting up the shelving, which it lent
to the Exchange, in a location that the Uni-
versity provided.
In short, it would be impossible to operate a
Book Exchange without the University's co-
operation. So far, that cooperation has been
there when'needed, and now it is needed again,
this time to help provide a future for the Ex-
change.
RESIDES A sponsor. the Exchange needs a
location. Last fall, it was in the quonset

hut, only to be chased out by SL, its own spon-
sor. This semester it shared the Alumni Me-
morial Hall with identification card red tape,
which was possible only because of the small
number who need ID cards at spring registra-
tion.
At some indefinite time in the future, the Ex-
change will be housed in the Student Activities
Building. But not a spade has been lifted yet
for that venture. In the meantime, the Book
Exchange retains the subtitle of The Happy
Wanderer. Only the University can alleviate
this travel problem, especially when the Ex-
change is about to lose its sponsor.
Usually the problem of location comes up
about the 'time that Book Exchange workers
have collected a few books and desperately need
a place to put them. Then a hurried confer-
ence with University officials produces a new,
different and almost satisfactory location with
new, different and unexpected piroblems. Al-
though an adequate set-up is usually possible
under the conditions, students are a semester
behind in knowing where the Exchange is.
IF THE Exchange is blessed with a permanent
residence, it should be able to attract and
handle a volume of business that would make
this semester's $8,900 look like a roll of pen-
nies. That is, if improvements in methods of
collecting books and the willingness of the
sponsoring organization to spend money to
make money were present in sufficient amounts.
Yet the immediate problem is one of smaller
scope. It is to find a future for the Book Ex-
change. And it seems that students must look
to the University for the solution, unless some
student organization offers to take it over and
can show evidence that it will develop the Book
Exchange's potentialities.
It may be possible that the new Student Gov-
ernment Council can handle the task. The Book
Exchange seems to be but a slight strain on
the -members of its present sponsor. But the
University has been of more help in operating
the Exchange than, has SL. Maybe the Univer-
sity should sponsor the book exchange.

For Efficacy .. .
To the Editor:
IN REPLY to Miss Connie Sher-
man's letter, some careless
typesetter swept us off the bottom
of a column like so many Paul
Bunyans. Nevertheless, since we
hate waste. we are still in favor
of sending the base of the statue to
East Lansing. A good solid block
of oak like that can always find
use around a farmyard, perhaps
as a paltform for political speech-
es or as a chopping block for los-
ing coaches. Anyway, the stump
does not belong in Ann Arbor;
dust is a tradition at Michigan
while Paul Bunyan is not.
-The Fourteen Others
Slot Consulting ...
To the Editor:
AFTER SPENDING the greater
part of two days last week try-
ing to see advisors and advisors
of advisors, we have concluded that
something certainly should be
done about the counselling sys-
tem here at Michigan.
We think that academic coun-
selling ought to be more than a
"well, what do you want to take
this time?" affair sandwiched into
a fifteen minute slot. We feel that
more men and time should be al-
lowed for this very important as-
pect of the University's overall
program - more men who have
taken the time to learn about the
courses offered and know some-
thing more than the very scant
outline of each that appears in
the college catalog, and more time
in which to work with the indi-
vidual student to see that he has
made the proper selection of
courses,tand that these courses are
in the direction of his academic
or .vocational interest.
For more than two weeks prior
to registration it has been im-
possible to make an appointment
to see your academic counsellor.
Moreover in the two hour period
set aside for counselling right be-
fore registratioon the counsellors
have been so swamped with stu-
dents that the extent of their
counselling has been limited to
little more than signing election
cards. Under the existing set up
if you know what you want to
take then there is no need to con-
sult the advisors-they simply act
as rubber stamps. And if you don't

know what you want to take, there
isn't too much sense in consulting
them either, since they haven't
time enough to work out a pro-
gram with you. Why should this
be? Aren't we entitled to have aca-
demic counselors who have the
time and resources for this very
important job. We think so.
It is for these reasons that we
would like to make some sugges-
tions on how to improve the coun-
selling program:
1.) Have more academic advis-
ors.
2.) Extend the office hours of
these advisors.
3.) Institute some sort of pro-
gram for training counsellors so
that they know more about the
different courses and programs of-
fered here at the University.
-Jay S. Colen
The Facts ***
To the Editor:
IDISAGREED with what Mr. Ha-
ber said in his letter of January
the eighth. It sounded like the
impressions of a freshman man
who had seen a women's dormitory
for the first time, and then gone
home to his own. I believe that the
women's hours are satisfactory
from most men's point of view.
However there may be a few stu-
dents who don't realize that the
main reason for college is to learn
things that either cannot be learn-
ed in later life, or if they can,
only with great dififculty. A per-
son who shares the views of Mr.
Haber has lost his perspective of
college life, and must have a poor
philosophy to guide his own.
It would be nice, Mr. Haber, if
all people were as good as you and
your friends. Unfortunately, they
are not. As a result we have rules,
like the one you criticized, per-
taining to women's dormitory
hours. It would be interesting to
have some comments from one of
Haber's "slaves."

regard for tradition or is he mere-
ly the possessor of a vivid imagi-
nation?

UNIVERSITY WOODWIND QUINTET. Nel-
son Hauenstein, flute; Florian Mueller,
oboe; Albert Luconi, clarinet; Clyde Car-
penter, horn; Lewis Cooper, bassoon. Mar-
ian Owen, pianist.
LAST night's concert by the University Wood-
wind Quintet was a well attended and, on
the whole, thoroughly enjoyable evening. There
is a strong sense of adventure in the hearing
of such an ensemble; unlike a string quartet,
the wind group relies for its effectiveness upon
the strong contrasts in color which the dif-
ferent instruments present. The handling of
five dissimilar voices is no easy problem for a
composer; and the first work on the program,
Berezowsky's Suite No. 2, was largely a dis-
appointment in this and other respects. The
horn functioned as a sort of second bassoon,
while Mr. Luconi's many solos in the "throat"
register of the clarinet had to be unpleasantly
forced in order to be heard. Musically, the
work was disjointed and diffuse, and Mr. Bere-
zowsky missed several good opportunities to
bring it to a close.
Ropartz' Deux Pieces, while strongly reflect-
ing the influence of his teacher, Franck, were
pleasant listening and were sympathetically
performed. A sharp contrast was provided by
Arnold's Three Shanties, in which the com-
poser missed no opportunity to utilize the hu-
morous effects of which the quintet is capable.
An academic, but mercifully brief set of varia-
tions by Tomasi concluded the first half of

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU with Jean Arthur, Lionel Barry-
more and James Stewart.
TIME somehow has a way of changing films. Screen efforts that
were once considered the "best of the year" often appear rather
trite, and at most passe, when viewed after a decade or two. This
is mtach the case with You Can't Take It With You, 1938's Academy
Award-winning film. The political and philosophical doctrine it
presents is that nasty rich men make the world a nasty place, that
poor folks are regular, nice guys.
Taken from the Pulitzer Prize play by George S. Kaufman and
Moss Hart, You Can't Take It With You was adapted for the screen

by Robert Riskin and filmed by
These men are all top profes-
sionals; and any merit which the
film still displays is largely the
result of their widely recognized
talents. The Kaufman-Moss lines
are funny, the Riskin adaptation
faithful, and the Capra direction
tight and well controlled.
T HE story concerns a young
man, Tony Kirby (James
Stewart), who is the son of rich
banking parents, Mr. and Mrs. An-
thony P. Kirby (Edward Arnold
and Mary Forbes), social snobs{
in the best tradition. Tony falls in

is a Southern ex-football player
who prints Communist literature
for distribution with candy bars.
Of course, the chief problem is
to reconcile rich parents to poor
parents, a tast which obviously
proves trying. But in so doing, the
Kirby's become "regular guys," the
poor are fed, and everybody is
happy.
ASLONG as it remains a com-
edy, You Can't Take It With
You is great fun. But like other
comedies of the thirties, it soon
begins preaching, without subtlety
