public his viewpoint. The political haranguers
haven't a leg on which to stand.
And once again the President will probably.
show the politicians a "thing or two." In the past'
he has stood apart from machine politics when it
has seemed necessary to do so, and has accomp-
lished admirable results by so doing.
He is true to the party which he represented
in the 1932 election. He has walked the many
planks of the Democratic platform as he pledged
himself to do. But he has also given evidence
that he will conscientiously attempt to give the
people' a government as free from the political
strings of the past as it is possible to give them.
Those who oppose the President upon this par-
ticular issue are nothing more nor less than un-
American politicians who are looking to their own
selfish ends and are catering to an insatiabletap-
petite for political power. It is to, be hoped that
Congress will support the President to the extent
of carrying out this attempt to take the post-
offices entirely away from* those who have mis-
used them in the past.

War Is Declared
IDNAPING activities of recent.
Jmonthis have finally brought, about
dsitable action by Federal offcials. War has been
declared. The gangster, kidnaper and racketeer
are gofingto be miade accessible to. national law
In the past the activities of' Federal agencies
1ave been confined to violations of. laws which
affect the nation directly. So-called police powers
have always been relegated to tle several states.
But the severe nature of the kidnapings which
have taken place in recent mionths demonstrates
the necessity for the existence of Federal police
The new proposals include the establishment of
a law enforcing organizationliwhich will be free to
cope with organized criminals. Underwprld char-
acters have always shown a definite fear of the
Federal government. National action has. been
swift and severe' enough to deter criminals from
interfering where Federal laws are cpncerned. Un-
doubtedly when national authorities are given
power to act in cases which are now closed to'
them, the racketeers, hoodlums, kidnapers, and
gangsters will be on a downward trend .And, with
a Federal body to co-ordinate the work of the'
individual states, the nation shound once again.
assume a law-abiding attitude which has no place
in its code for those who have so openly ignored

I FP FORCE
To The Editor:
Yesterday's letter to the Campus Opinion Co1-
umn signed. "A Student" was an highly appro-
priate answer to the personal attack of the pre-
vious clay in the column signe'd "Former Student."
I am of the opinion that the personal attack made
on Sergeant West was unnecessary to the end
sought-denunciation of the highly inefficient Ann
Arbor police department. Likewise "A Student"
cannot wash away the sins of the police depart-
mnent nd its.individual members with a sob story
about the big virile heart of the police officer
who started his "man" on the right path with a
few noble words.
Such qualities are highly desirous in any human
being, and far be it from me to attack the per-
sonality of a man who displayed such commend-
able persona traits. Nevertheless mere benevo-
lence isn't stopping the Ann Arbor burglaries.
Certainly justice should be -tempered with mercy,
but justice should also be firni and not a sponge
reeking with sopped up Puritanical milk of un-
natural human kindness. The principles of jus-
Lice demand that the citizens of Anm Arbor and
the visitors within its boundaries be protected
from the vandals who are looting houses of val-
uable. possessions, purchased with the fruits of
honest toil. The ends of justice require good police
administration, and good administration in turn
means certain apprehension and punishment for
the persons guilty of transgressing society's rules
The genesis of Ann Arbor's police problem is
explained, I believe, not in personalities but rather
in the organic structure of the munic'ipal admin-
istration set up. What is that set up? It is a pic-
,ture. of a government with no direct lines of re-
sponsibility. The mayor appoints the police com-
mission by and with the, consent of the council,
and the words "by' and with the consent" are not
meaningless. Residents of the city are familiar
with the rough and tumble the mayor is forced to
engage in before finally appointing a commission
which is probably not at all to the mayor's liking.
From there on the mayor has nothing further to
say. The police commission appoints the chief of
police and all subordinates. This body, composed
of a number of men who aie not at all familiar
with. the technique of police administration, runs
the department. The mayor sits in City Hall pow-
erless to give orders to promote the efficiency of
the police, and the chief of police has to be sub-
servient to a board which knows nothing ,of polic-
ng and in all probabilities has friends whom the
Thief must not offend. The city council has a gen-
-ral fiscal supervision over the department further
dividing the lines of responsibilities. No wonder
we have such an inefficient police organization,
What can be done about it? Lots of things can
be done. Jackson reorganized its police force as
did Pontiac. They called in George E. Eckhart, long
associated, with the state police, a model in effi-
cient policing. Eckhart remained in the cities
mentioned for a period of about six 'months dur-
ing which time he was acting chief of police, and
had full power to adjust and reorganize as he saw
It is too much to expect Ann Arbor to cast off
the shackles of its outworn and out-moded form
of government, but it can replace clowns, in the
police department with brain power.

How the fortune-teller of today plies his trade
the shrewd manner in which he employs the latest'
scientific inventions to convince his victims of his
'"supernatural" powers, is set forth in the dramatic
and comic film, "The Mind Reader," which opens

Health Service Facilities
Stressed By Forsythe
"Many Summer Session students

E. Forsythe, director, said yesterday.
Specialists in all branches of med-
icine are available to care for the
'illnesses of students, all expenses be-
ing covered by a portion of the an-
nual fee, he said, and besides this
students are reminded, that they now
have opportunity to have any exam-
inations made that they may have
been considering for some time.
"Although we are kept busy as it
is by students' calls," Dr. Forsythe
,said, "nevertheless we feel that others
should be reminded of the facilities
we have to offer them in order that

FTER miles of hand-shaking and smiles, Mrs.
A Franklin D. Roosevelt thought up a little plan
while motoring through New England. Her secre-
tary was to precede her into a Farmington, Me.,
hotel and register for "Mrs. E. A. Roose."
That done, Mrs. Roosevelt settled down for a
good night's rest, which she intended should ex-
tend slightly into the morning. She ,was catching
up on sleep when the phone tinkled at seven the
next morning. Two minutes after a bell-boy stood
at the door with both arms'loaded with flowers
for "Mrs. E. A. Roose."

1 STORY about the colorful Gov. Gifford Pin-
chot of Pennsylvania is kicking around town
to prove that seeing a cabinet officer these days
is like the old camel-needle's eye partnership.
The Governor, who was former chief forester of'
the United States, wanted to see his, fellow prog-
ressive, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace.
The outer-office secretary' stopped him.
"What do you want to see the Secretary about?"
"Trees," said Pinchot.
"You'll have to see Mr. Jones," she said.
"Jones be blowed," exclaimed Piichot. "I ap-
pointed him to that job years ago. You get me
into Wallace's office inside of three minutes."
SECRETARY of the Interior Ickes lost his way
in the endless corridors of the department of
commerce building the other day. Finally he met
some newspaper men he knew.
"Say," he demanded, "send Mr. Hoover a wire
and tell him the secretary of the interior is lost
in his building."
THE LEAGUE PLUGS UP
THE DRUG RACKET SPILLWAY
Monday the League of Nations treaty conven-
tion restricting the manufacture of narcotic drugs
went into effect around the' world, marking the
completion of one of humanity's longest forward
steps in many years.
The treaty, which restricts the manufacture of
narcotics to the bare demands of medicine and
commerce, was drafted by the representatives of
,57 nations, assembled in Geneva in July, 1931. It
was to become operative 90 days after ratification
by 25 of the nations, four of which, it was stip-
ulated, must be large manufacturing nations.
The first nation to sign the convention was
Nicaragua, on March 16, 1932. The United Statgs
followed two weeks later, ahead of' Peru, Portugal,
and Persia. Other nations' whose signatures have
been added are: Great Britain, Turkey, Germany,
Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Japan, Bel-
gium, Egypt, Lithuania, Hungary, Bulgaria,
Czechoslovakia, Danzig, IrishFree State, Monaco,
Poland, Rumania, Spain, Sweden. Brazil, Caxada,
Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Haiti, Mexico,
Salvador, San Domingo, Uruguay, Sudan, and
India. Six of these-the United States, Great Brit-
ain, Turkey, Germany, Switzerland and France
are large producers of narcotic drugs.
