Night Editor-C. W. CARPENTER


(New York Herald Tribune)
For the State Department to ob-'
ject to a pageant depicting the sur-
render of Lord Cornwallis is almost'
too precious an item of news to be
believed. Such a pageant had been'
planned for the Washington bicen-
tennial celebration at Yorktown. On
the ground that it might offend
British sensibilities, the scene is to
be canceled and replaced by "'a
very beautiful parade" of ladies in
Colonial costume.
This sort of fatuity is a perfect
example of what makes the normal
citizen snort with impatience at
publicized pacifism. The notion
that any Britisher in his right mind
would today object to a frank cele-
bration of Lord Cornwallis's sur-
render is too absurd to be enter-
tained seriously. Fortunately Am-
erican-British relations do not rest
cn so fanful a basis. They would
otherwise not have endured the
many rude buffetings to which they
have been subjected.
When the State Department's
action results in the substitution!
of a parade of beautiful ladies, the
laugh grows. Have we not enough
beauty contests and is this an ap-
propriate way of observing the
200th anniversary of George Wash-'
ington's birth? The whole incident'
is instinct with a ludicrous lack of'
judgment and even greater lack of
taste. The surrender of Lord Corn-
wallis is a simple historical fact
which excites no international feel-
ing. Clearly the silly season is
again upon us, and some light-
headed individual in Washington
has fired the opening gun.
Campus Opinion
Contributors are asked to be brief,

The "Hound and Horn", the
American magazine which the 'Cri-
terion", the best critical magazine
in the world, calls "the best criti-
cal magazine in America", has just
issued its summer number. The is-
sue is very necessary. One needs it;
and that is proof that the Hound
and Horn is progressing towards
solidity, towards a magazine one
can't avoid.
The issue opens with a translation
of a long essay 'Meditations 'on the
Life of Baudelaire" by Charles Du-
Bos. If you remember T. S. Eliot's
essay "Baudelaire in Our Time" in
his volume "For Launcelot An-
drews," DuBos is the critic of Bau-
delaire whom Eliot quoted and
agreed with so often. Eliot called
DuBos' essay "the finest study of
Baudelaire that has been made."
It was Mr. DuBos who first per-
ceived the significance of the nu-
merous references to religion in
Baudelaire's Journals. Now the
Hound and Horn has fortunately
made his essay available to Ameri-
can readers.
Another important essay in the
isue is part II of Hester Pickman's
long essay on Rainer Marie Rilke,
the German poet whose autobiogra-
phy was translated last year. Miss'
.Pickman also adds to her essay a'
translantion of three of the Ten
Elegies which are Rilke's greatest
work. There are two excellent
short stories by newcomers, Moe
Bragin and Caroline Gordon (Mrs.
Allen Tate). The poetry is contri-
buted by Yvor Winters, Dudley
Fitts, and by E. E. Cummings, whose
return to poetry is something en-
joyable. Cummings has retained
his unique cadence as the first two
lines of one of his poems will indi-
"somewhere i have never travel-
led, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have
their silence."

Tomorrow in London a confer-
ence of European Cabinet members
will open an all-important parley
which will be attended by Secretary
Stmson in "exactly the same stat-
us as that of the Prime Minister's
there." This means that for the
first time since the Versailles peac
conference, America will be official-
ly represented in a major discussion
p. probems which, originating in
:urope, are of immediate Impor-
bance to our national welfare.
Mr. Raymond B. Fosdick may
have exaggerated the situation
when he said that "the threatened
collapse of Germany would reduce
Europe to economic chaos, and Eu-
rope cannot go to pieces without
involving America in an industria
and social earthquake," but hi
statement is by no means falling
on deaf ears. The logic of his pre-
diction is certainly enhanced by hi
remark that "our machine civili-
zation has wired the world to
gether in a vast, intricate circuit;
the electric spark that starts any-
where on the line will travel to the
end." Less metaphoric is his re-
flection that "there are no good
times that can be confined to one
country and no bad times that can
be permanently isolated."
President Hoover's decision to
send Secretary Stimson to the Lon-
don conference in an official cap-
acity may put an end to the dilly-
dallyings of the American "unof-
ficial observer." There is no ques-
tion that America is definitely link-
ed with present European difficul-
ties and it is high time we looked
facts in the face and did our share
to bring a speedy end to the cur-
rent mess.
Germany acted quickly in her re-
cent emergency and undoubtedly
did much to win over public confi-
uence, for Thursday's financial re-
ports all over the world showed a
marked improvement. The change
in international sentiment will
count heavily in the proceeding
of the London meeting and it is
to be hoped that the red tape of
nations which, as we have remark-
ed before, was torn up in last week's
melee, wil be permanently swept
There are those who obect stren-
uusly to the official participation
of the United States in European
affairs but in the series of crises
which have recently arisen, the
voice of the alarmist has unfor-
tunately been drowned out by the
busy discussions of statesmen and
bankers who are not afraid to step
out and stop a potentially danger-
ous runaway, whether or not it
threatens their own fortunes.

The letter in the adjacent column
regarding the hoodlum antics of
unresponsible children at the band
concerts is an apt illustration of the
comparative ineffectiveness of the
University police.
Perhaps they have attempted to
maintain order at the concerts and
failed; perhaps they have not
deemed it necessary to interfere
with the gambolngs of the child,-
ren. At any rate, we believe that
a definite attempt should be made
on the part of the University to
spruce up the campus force. Their
uniforms are for the most part
sorry affairs and we often wonder

how the men manage to look at
all dignified. A policeman's great-
