IWhat Others Say

A TTHE twentieth world con-
ference of the Young Men's
Christian association, held last
week-end in Cleveland, a heated
two-day discussion as to whether
or not Germany was solely respon-
sible for the war caused so much
ill-feeling between the French and
German delegates that a resolution
urging a hands-off policy was pre-
sented to the plenary committee.
Y.M.C.A. conferences are usually
devoted to efforts toward solving
difficult social problems and plan-
ning programs designed to provide
recreation and better living con-
ditions for young people. Just why
so much time was wasted in argue-
ing about the war, we cannot im-
agine. As far as we're concerned
the discussion wins the Booby De-
bate prize for 1931. Considering
present world conditions and the
fact that the great war began near-
ly seventeen years ago, arguments
about who started it are the height
of futility. Nobody cares now who
started or who won the war; the
important fact is that the whole
world felt its devastating effects
and the whole world is still suffer-
ing from its four-year course.

(Daily Iowan)
Several years ago there was a
popular song that went something
like this- "I'm looking at the world
through rose-colored glasses." It
could be revived as the theme song
for some of the editorials recently,
issued from the joingoist press.
It would require a pair of at least
rose-colored glasses to see anything
aproaching a -'red invasion" in the
incident in Chicago the other day.
But that's what some people have
been seeing. They have even said
that the Soviet government in Rus-
sia has declared war on "democrat-
ic" America, that an organized in-
vasion of agitators into the United
States is under way, and that vio-
lence is one of the principal teach-
ings of the invaders. The lenses of
those glasses must be a much dark-
er shade than rose!
Four things at least the serious
investigator would really like to
know: 1. Whether the agitators are
actually communists. 2. Whether
they actually advocate violent
methods of reform. 3. Whether they
have any connection with the Sov-
iet government. 4. Whether their
numbers are sufficient to constitute
a serious "menace." When the evi-
dence of these items has been pro-
duced - and to date it has not -
there may be some occasion for
national excitement. Certainly not
In looking at occasional demon-
strations and disturbances, such as
have occurred since long before the
"Reds" were ever heard of, it would
be better to take off the glasses.
(Daily Illini)
Just a mania for headlines. That
seems to be the chief asset and
characteristic of Governor W. H.
Murray of Oklahoma, who, since
his victory in the gubernatorial
campaign of 1930 has rated the tall,
Gothic type oftener than any other
state executive in the United States
for a whole term of office.
Our fiery, aggressive executive
from the West has followed so many
of his campaigns to the finish in
such a peculiar manner that even
his best friends often gaze upon
him somewhat askance. But that
doesn't dim the light about Gov.

Cousin Pltsch is indisposed again,
and it devolves upon me to fill his
pace as best I may in the interim.
Due to a total lack of local in-
cident, therefore, the Rolls Staff,
after taking an extensive vote on
the matter, has decided to institute
another contest. The contest in
this case is simplicity itself. All
you have to do is wrote a worse
poem than the one which makes its'
blushing appearance below and
send it to Pltsch when he gets well
-an extremely distant occurrence,
judging by the shape he is in at
present.-You should see it. The
shape, I mean.

Who IS Little Yvonne Fagan?
Only just today we had a strange
experience. We were walking down
Maynard St. (Adv.) and admiring
Ann Arbor's midsummer glory when
something-it couldn't have been
the lightning-impelled us to look
upwards at the heavens with star-
ry eyes. Well, after we'd pulled out
our shirt and emptied out a number
of gallons of rain water which were
lodged therein on account of we

the popular negligee fashion which'

days, we turned into the shelter of

to a very depressing winter. If
Y.M.C.A. delegates, in the face of
all this, must talk about war, we

SIR Chandrasekhara Raman, the
winner of the Nobel prize for
physics, has been honored by a doz-
en countries with medals and de-
grees for his recent discoveries
about light, but he so poor finan-
cially that he has been unable to
accept many invitations from sev-
eral countries to travel and lecture
on his discoveries. Sir Raman lives
in relative obscurity in the poorest
quarters of Calcutta, India; he has
no laboratory at all, and his library
is limited to a few chosen treas-
It is a pity that the genius of a
man like Sir Raman is permitted to
waste away because recongition of
it is confined to useless medals, de-
grees, and other empty honors. A
modest award of worldly goods
would enable this scientist to car-
ry on his work and delve even fur-
ther into the mysteries of the uni-
verse, which would prove valuable,
no doubt, in the field of learning.
Donors of awards, however, are
bound by convention not to be-
smirch the learned by offering
money - vile stuff! - in exchange
for work performed altruistically
by starving scientists.
Meanwhile we read with disgust
that a cat in Californio has been
left $31,000 so that its liver supply
will continue to the end of its days.
We hope the medal donors will
wake up to the injustice of the Cal-
cutta situation and pass the hat
for Sir Raman.

Probably the new book which ex-
cites the most interest is Willa
Cather's new novel Shadows on the
Rock. For a novelist whose virtues
are such quiet ones, Miss Cather
has quite an extraordinary follow-
Her new book, in the words of the
New York Times reviewer, "is a
fresco of seven panels showing var-
ious aspects of life in Quebec in
the days of Frontenac. Miss Cather
represents with learned and deli-
cate precision the daily existence of
Quebec. What gives the chronicle
its body is the objects described:
its accurate landscapes of the sea-
son, the river, the headlands up
which the city climbs, the streets,
churches, the markets, the houses.
The extraordinary sensitivity of
Miss Cather's prose makes the
town and its inhabitants exquisite-
ly visibile."
Yet all the reviewers seem to un-
ite in deploring its too static char-
acter. As John Chamberlain puts
it: "What she has tried to do is to
give one a sense of the way of life
that follows the French Catholic
emblems. But the lack of conflict
in the method is almost fatal to
continued enjoyment of the novel;
once one has got the flower there
is little excuse for going on .....
One can only wish that Miss Cath-
er had chosen a more dramatic
method, and more vital eye-wit-
nesses and participants; one can
only wish that she had selected for
her reflection of pioneer history a
"live" body with poetic eyes like
Elizabeth Madox Robert's Diony
Hall ......'Shadows on the Rock'
is not the highest point on the
graph of Miss Cather's work. Su-
perbly written, with that sensitiv-
ity to sunset and afterglow that has
always been here, it still shows that
good prose is not enough to jus-
tify the substitution of static de-
scription for drama throughout the
novel of 280 pages."

The Life and Letters of Sir Ed-
mund Gosse by the Hon. Evan
Charteris has just been issued in
this country by Harper and Bros.,
New York. Edmund Gosse, over a
period from 1880 at least to 1915,
was a somewhat weak version of
the famous literary mentors of Eng-
lish literature. But he was a pro-
lific and sensitive writer on nearly
all the literary topics that arose
during that period; and his life
and letters and criticisms will cer-
tainly be invaluable in any attempt
to get a clear vision of that period.

Mexico: A Study of Two Americas
by Stuart Chase is the latest book
in a movement which 'Time' with
characteristic superficiality calls
The latest fad of the intelligent-
sia." Stuart Chase's trips to and
account of Mexico are not part of
a "fad." As Ernest Gruening puts
it: "For some years Stuart Chase
has been eyeing the American
scene with a penetrating gaze and
analyzing its foibles with shrewd
objectiveness. A year and a half
ago he returned from Mexico to
the metropolis of this "land of plen-
ty" to find entry to his apartment
