Must We Still Have
An Automob~ile Ba4

P ERIODICALLY throughout the
past six years, articles have ap-
ared in The Daily criticizing the officials of the
iiiversity for allowing the continuance of the
Lu upon "motor driven vehicles."
'or nonths at a time perhaps, nothing has been
id regarding the matter and it has appeared as
acceptance of the ban as a necessary eyil was
z accomplished thing. Not so, however, for the
istence of the prohibitionary measure has al-
ays been a thorn in the flesh of the student
dy. And once again The Daily comes forth to
mn its readers that, though unmentioned for
se past few months, the matter his not been
lowed to drop. On the contrary, it is now, more
ian ever before, a very live issue.
Whatever the arguments in favor of the restric-
ons upon the use of automobiles during the
gular academic year, certainly there are none
hich would stand as an excuse for its continu-
nce during the Summer Session. proponents of
e ban claimed, at the time it was put into force,
iat students had pMgven themselves incapable,
proper possession of cars. But can such a thing
said when students are allowed to drive at cer-
in hours and not allowed to drive at other times,
in certain company?
It is true that the rules are relaxed somewhat
wring the summer months, to allow the use of
rs for certain "recreational" purposes, yet the
n does exist and permits must be obtained. And
rther rulings prevent the use of cars by men
id. women students together after certain hours
the evening. "Mixed couples driving after 9
in. will be violating, the ban," summer regula-
)ns state.
Summer Session students who have been en-
ged in "professional" pursuits during the year
imediate preceding are exempted from the rul-
g. It is apparently assumed then, by those
charge of the ban's enforcement, that maturity
the one -quality lacking in the students from
lom the use of cars is withheld, otherwise why,
e leniency toward the older students who at-,
nd the Summer Session?
If this is true, is it to be gathered from the
les that a person not yet 28 years of age is,
mmature and that one having passed that point
mature? And, if so, why do not the state auto-
)bile regulations prevent persons under 28 from
ving, instead of setting the limit at a much
ver figure?
Finally, if arguments in favor of the ban were
;ical, and if they did arise from reasoning which'
uld make for a better educational institution
the end, where do they stand at a time like this
en every effort must be made to economize
on University expenditures? Exact figures upon
cost of enforcing this measure are not read-
obtainable. The sum represented however
tst be worthy of consideration at a time when
ry penny counts and every employee of the
iversity must answer, not only as to his useful-
s to the institution, but also as to his indis-
isibility.hThis, above all times in the past,"
Fuld be the moment when the autom'obile ban
Auld either pass the test or forever be thrown
de as a luxurious measure which no one wants
I which has no place in an institution which
,ches young men and women how to properly

bers and townspeople of Ann Arbor serve as an
estimation of his character. Ie will be missed, by
the University and by the City-and a's much by
those many students who have valued his friend-
ship through contacts made at the institution to
which be gave his life blood-the Union.
The Disarmament
F RANCE'S recent default on war
debt payments due the United
states is an outstanding example of the futility of
international agreements under the present code
of world morality. The failure of France to keep
its promise to this country has proved that na-
tions will observe their obligations only in such
cases where it is directly advantageous.
This case, it may be pointed out, is one which
involves financial matters exclusively. An example
of a very different sort is the line of action fol-.
lowed by Japan in reference to the Manchuirian
dispute of 1932-33. Here all the League of Na-
tions agreements were thrown to the winds with
one gesture of defiance. Japan cared nothing for
its international agreements. The other nations of
the world, not being desirous of war, could do
Very few individuals really want war. As with
people, so with nations. Every effort will always
be imade by the majority of the powers to avoid
international strain. To a great extent, a country
wouad rather remain silently aloof than take ag-
gressive action ii an attempt to right a financial
I tvrg. 'The es8enae Of the matter is that interna-
tip al ag eer&6its are unenforceable. If one na-
iaon breaks faith, the wronged country has three
courses of action. It may declare war, it may insti-
tfte econoimic rheasures of retaliation, or it may
suffer in silence. War, being the greatest of all
national cal2tmities, is never really desirable, ex-
cept to the leaders of an out and out imperialistic
government. Economic boycott measures, being of
the nattire of an unfriendly and retaliatory course
of action, lead to strained relations and to pos-
sible war; they are also hazardous. The only thing
left for a nation which has been wronged and
which seriously wishes to avoid disaster is to say
nothing and permit the aggressor to enjoy his ill-
gotten gains.
That is exactly what is the matter with disarm-
ament treaties. They, by their very nature, are
unenforceable. It would be paradoxical indeed to
attempt to enforce a pacifistic agreement by mil-
itary measures; it would be equally futile to bind
parties to the agreement with a threat of eco-
nomic war. The need of enforcement is clear.
The temptation to take advantage of the unpre-
paredness of other nations will always prove too
much for some. They will arm, and they can-
not be stopped, for the League of Nations and
the World Court notwithstanding there is no
higher power to judge the countries of the world.
They cannot be stopped, that is, while the world
takes its present attitude toward social morality.
They cannot be stopped while nations treat each
other with the suspicion and brutality that pre-
vailed among individuals in prehistoric ages. But
they can be stopped if in the mind of every citizen
of every country is the deep-seated conviction
that international justice is sacred, that it is a
thing to be cherished above all other things. And
that can only be accomplished through education
of the youth of the world. If only for the sake
of the example that events necessarily have upon
those of impressionable years, diplomatists who
sponsor disreputable international deals of a sort
that have been far too prevalent since the World
War must realize how badly they are building for
the future. They should see, if they are sincerely
striving for the good of their own nations, that
only confusion and strife can be fostered by a
generation which grew up in an atmosphere of in-
ternational distrust and hatred.
This is the second of three editorials
on disarmament. 'The next will appear
-The Editor.
The Theatre
G.0Martinez-Sierra, author of "The Romantic
Young Lady," had in mind a very, very highly ro-

mantic and sentimental young person indeed. She'
thrilled to popular novels, she longed to Live, she
chafed at her misfortune of being a woman. And
last night when the Michigan Repertory Players
presented their opening of the Sierra comedy at
rLydia Mendelssohn Theatre Martha Ellen Scott
played the lead.
She was the romantic young lady. By that we
mean that, to all intents and purposes, she had
become Rosario. She thrilled to popular novels,
she longed to Live, she chafed at her misfor-
tune of being a woman. She was, in short, the
Few student actresses can dare to be sweet.
Probably all would like to be, but, fortunately,
some know better. Martha Ellen Scott, as Rosario,
was nothing short of delicious. She dared to be
sweet, and fortunately sweetness becomes her re-'
markably. There is very little of the Janet Gaynor
about Miss Scott. Her work involves the ability to
know when to turn off the starry eyes and to re-
frain from the sunny little smile-two articles of
equipment, incidentally, which the screen-famous
Miss Gaynor works to the cloying point.
Opposite Miss Scott was Jay Pozz, as the dash-
ing young novelist. And Mr. Pozz, wisely enough,
was discreetly not too dashing to contrast satis-'
factorily with the feminine lead. To carry on the
parallel, Mr. Pozz was what Charles Farrell could
be if he weren't so devilishly dashing and hand-
some--and boyish. As we have already remarked
with reference to the Play Production presentation
of "Journey's End" last spring, Mr. Pozz is very
clever in avoiding sickening boyishness in playing
his parts. His charm is somehow gratifyingly
The rest of the cast is relatively of trivial im-
portance. Dorothy Crane, as the wise, understand-
ing old grandfather, might also have been pretty

ing Maria Pepa, the old servant, was satisfactory,
but hardly convincingly made up for the part.
Second among the several character parts in
the cast was doubtless Arthur Secord with little
more than a bit as Guillermo, the author's serv-
ant. His shamble and his blankly approving look
smacked of realism. -K. S.
Screen Reflections
Pour stars means extraordinary; three stars very
good; two stars good; one star just another picture;
no stars keep away from it.
(Playing Thursday through Saturday)
In a part far different fromi her usual role,
Ruth Chatterton plays the soiled, bedraggled
queen of the carnivals and sideshops ii "Lilly
Turner" which opens at the Michigan theatre
As the "cooch" dancer and come-on girl for a
carnival, Miss Chatterton has in this picture more
clandestine love affairs th'an most acfresses por-
tray in a lifetime. She flits from one love to an-
other with an abandon inlspired by the mistreat-
ment she received at the hands of her first lover.
As usually happens in such a story, it is not ttil
she finds the "real" love that the ilianly sweet-
hearts of her past come to the front to haunt
The picture, based on the stage play by Phillip
Dunning and George Abbott, reveals the life be-
hind the scenes of the players in the tawdry ied-
icine tent shows and the more glanorous car-
nivals. Gone is the Miss Chatterton of the society
drawing room; in her stead is the cheap ddncer
of the cheaper shows.
Miss Chatterton is supported in this film by
George Brent, Frank McHugh and Guy Kibbee.
The picture was directed by William Wellman.
A W ashington
WASHINGTON - If there was doubt in any-
body's mind about the political significance at-
tached by Democratic chieftains to the original
Senate vote on the Steiwer-Cutting amendment
on veterans' cuts Senator Arthur Robinson's out-
line of his re-election campaign plans out in In-
dianapolis would seem to set it at rest.
He is a Republican lone-wolf in an otherwise
Democratic state delegation to Congress. He
started his re-election campaign as soon as the
special session of Congress convened. He selected
the veterans' cut issue 'right then as the probable
best bet for the 1933 campaigning.
That was precisely the situation pictured to
House Democrats in the party conference which
paved the way for ultimate White House victory
over a Senate revolt on the veterans' reduction
issue. Had there been any Republican break-away
in the Senate on the vote which adopted the
Steiwer-Cutting amendment, Democratic leader-
ship would have had a far more difficult task
in whipping House followers into line to resist the
Senate drive and save &gident Roosevelt from
resort to a veto.
Appeal to Loyalty
The Democrats were advised that the Senate
vote marked a definite Republican decision to go
to the bat on the question of veterans' cuts next
year in virtually every Senatorial and House dis-
trict. Democratic party loyalty would be judged,
they were warned, on how they lined up in the
clash between the Senate and the White House.
And the fact that Postmaster General Farley
personally checked up on how Senate Democrats
voted in the final showdown, with seven of them
changing front to give the administration its ul-
timate victory, is not to be forgotten.
It is insisted by Democrats "in the know" that
Farley made no patronage or other promises
whatever. Yet the fact that he was on the job
that night probably had a compelling influence on
more than one Democrat who dreaded the effect
the vote he was asked to cast might have on his
own political fortunes.

Other Campaign Weapons
Senator Robinson - who constituted himself
chief critic of the "new deal' during the special
session-adds war debt handling and -the fact
that Roosevelt lieutenants like Secretary Woodin
and Ambassador-at-Large Davis figured on the
Morgan preferred' buyer lists, to his - announced
arsenal of campaigning weapons.
It is too early to estimate probable 1933 political
values in those respects. But President Roosevelt
and his political strategy inner circle cannot doubt
that the actual administration of powers over vet-
erans' compensation is one of the most delicate
political tasks ahead of them.
Editorial Comment
By a simple proclamation, Adolf Hitler the other
day erased the last great political party that re-
mained in opposition to his policies of the New
The Social Democrats, who polled 7,000,000
votes at the last election, were charged with trea-
sonable activities and it was decreed that Ger-
many shall henceforth be nothing but National
Socialist. In addition, all youth .organizations
were brought together under the direction of the
central commissioner responsible to Hitler himself.
So stupendous is the momentum of the Nazi
movement in Germany and many other sections
of Europe that Hitler will probably succeed. Op-
position already has dwindled almost to nothing-
ness and probably will fade altogether. But in the
end this very lack of opposition is likely to prove
the cause of the Nazi downfall.
No man and no government is omniscient. A
sturdy opposition, ever alert and free to point out
