Answer To The
Constitutional Democrats
OT MUCH EDITORIAL COMMENT
,Jis necessary on the following cor-
respondence, which has not ben published before.
The letters ave between Sterling E. Edmunds of
St. Louis, a leader of the 'Constitutional Demo-
crats,' a man who was called "the chief opponent
of child labor legislation in the United States" by
the chairman of the woman's division on the
Democratic party this week, and James H. Win-
ston, of tle prominent Chicago law firm of Win-
ston, Str:n and Shaw, a Democrat of long stand-
iig.
Mr. Sterling's letter reads as follows:
Dear Mr. Winston:
Senator James A. Reed of Missouri and I.
are addressing letters to Constitutional Dem-
crats who are opposed to the present alien con-
trol of our party's name and machinery in 30
or more States, asking if they will attend a
conference in Detroit on Friday, August 7th,
at the Book-Cadillac Hotel, to discuss what we
can and should do in the present campaign.
We are agreed, as are all who have any
knowledge of Constitutional history, that the
reelecti1n of President Roosevelt and his per-
severance in his collectivist policies, with the
prospect of his packing the Supreme Court to
validate them, presents one of the gravest
problems which has ever confronted the free
American citizen.
We have assurances from Democrats in a
dozen states at this time, including Hon. Bain-
bridge Colby of New York, Gov. Jos. B. Ely
of Mass., and John H. Kirby of Houston, Tex.,
that they will attend such meeting.
Will you kindly advise me by Air Mail or by
wire, addressing me at Wequetonsing, Mich.,
whether you will join with us, and, if so,
on your arrival in Detroit on August 7th, will
you come to my sitting room in the Book-
Cadillac Hotel promptly to register.
Those attending should make their own
hotel reservations.
Sincerely yours,
STERLING E. EDMUNDS. (Signed)
Mr. Winstons reply reads as follows:
Dear Mr. Edmunds:
I acknowle~ge recepit of your letter of July
27th, inviting me to attend a meeting of "Con-
stitutional Democratc" in Detroit on August
7th, "to discuss what we can and should do in
the present campaign." You ask me to advise
you by nir mail or by wire whether I will join
with you. Feeling as I do, I know it will make
no difference to you that my reply goes by
slow mail. Being a Democrat on principle and
revering the Constitution as much as anyone,
I can say fo- myself that my mind is made up
that "what I can and should do in the present
campaign".is to support the nominee of my
party, who has brought the country out of
chaos.
Aren't you covering too much territory when
you say, "We are agreed, as are all who have
any knowlefge of constitutional history, that
the re -election of President Roosevelt and his
perseverence in his collectivist policies, with
the prospec of his packing the Supreme Court
to validate them, presents one of the gravest
problems which has ever confronted the free
American citizen?"
I know quite a few lawyers, Republicans as
well as Democrats, possessed of at least a re-
spectable knowledge of constitutional history,
who feel that the preservation of our political
and economic system depends upon the reelec-

tion of President Roosevelt.
Would you be justified in making the charge

'The Old Maid'
To the Editor:
The something called "The Old Maid" for which
Zoe Akins was given a Pulitzer Prize was played
Wednesday right in a way well worth at least
sin amateur Pulitzer award. The honor for which
Sarah Pierce and Ruth Le Roux sparred was a
high one; two characters well depicted who gained
. rength and brilliance as the plot did, they both
von equal laurels in a play which, though ad-
mittedly fictional, yet portrays a cross section
ef nineteenth century life in a highly dramatic
method. ,
Yesterday's critic maintains that "The Old
Maid" is "unnecessary as thematic material."
Every theme is old, and this is one of the oldest.
But the treatment is what counts, and this story
bears placing under the list headed by: Tragedy:
e study and denouement. As tragedy, Edith

BOOKS
"THE EARTH TREMBLES," fifth volume of "Men
of Good Will," by Jules Romains; (Knopf).
rfHAT interminable serial novel of Jules Ro-'
mains has progressed into its fifth volume,
a considerable book entitled "The Earth Trembles."
As M. Romains progresses, his pattern becomes
increasingly clear and (perhaps fortunately) it
becomes evident that the author can, if he wills,
continue writing the same book forever. He al-
ready has made the English novelists of long ago
seem mere postscript writers. Hervey Allen and
Margaret Mitchell, too.
And as the pattern becomes clearer it also be-
comes evident that M. Romains could not have
written his novel without generous use of hind-j
sight. For he is bursting into a consideration of1
economics, of revolution, of social security and
other problems we like to call modern. Since "The
Earth Trembles" covers' the period between 1910
and the World war, approximately, it is not diffi-
cult for the author to put sage remarks into the
mouth of his Jerphanion. He has the 20-odd
years experience of the world, since the beginning
of the war, to draw from.
The French railroad strike of 1910 is a fore-
runner of the quake, as M. Romains sees it. One
of his characters says to another, in effect, that
the only escape from a foreign war would be a
war at home, that France must choose. The sha-
dow of a dictator is thrown upon the screen by
Briand, who thinks about the possibility of un-
trammeled power (through M. Romains' mind, to
be sure).
And Jerphanion (M. Romains' intellectual stalk-
ing horse) thinks deeply of economics-of how
there has dearly always been enough to make man-
kind happy, and how the plenty has been drawn
off into personally profitable channels by the
"princes." And Jerphanion thinks too about war
and the organization of good will and means
to keep nations at peace.
Truth to tell, the farther M. Romains wanders
from the usual mold of the novel, the less readable
he becomes. He is so anxious to make his points,
that sometimes, he drives them clean through
his readers' head. -J.S.
sia, Germany, Italy, Spain, France and else-
where, I cannot escape the conclusion that the
waters have been troubled everywhere and
that skilful steering has been required. Since
we are still afloat, and our colors flying, I con-
clude that all in all the Roosevelt Administra-
tion has done pretty well.
Again speaking as a capitalist who has suc-
ceeded in laying by a competence for old age,
and who therefore desires to preserve the so,
called capitalistic system, I, like every think-
ing person, am uneasy about the problems that

GEOGRAPHICAL
1 As Miss Post Would Say-
To the Editor:
It has been most amusing to read the comments
on courtesy and good breeding as expressed by op-
posite sides of the Mason-Dixon line.
But may I call to the attention of the young
lady who wrote under the caption "Yankee" in the
Thursday Daily (I think the writer in question
must be a woman for I do not think any gentleman
would speak so spitefully of one of the opposite
sex), that by allowing herself such a display of
verbal pyrotechnics, she placed herself in the same
class as the one she so hotly condemned. "Judge
not that ye be not judged.'
May I also add that the poor taste shown by the
one whom the League offended would not be
tolerated for one second by any true southerner
either. Such conduct is just as incompatible to
my sense of good taste as it is to any of "You-
all."

And now, sir, I wonder if you would
consider, or have what may be termed
"intestinal fortitude," to apologize for
your uncouth remarks addressed to
one of our lot. We regret and are
sorry for having caused such griev-
ance. Can you say the same? Re-
spectfuli y,
-A Georgia Cracker.
([bid
To the Editor:
I do not suppose I should comment
on something quite so puerile as the
feeble attempt on the part of a so
called Yankee to answer the whole-
some criticism offered by a southern
gal a few days ago, however, being
a northerner and a middle-westerner
I wish to make a few remarks in order
to preclude the Southern Gal from
getting the wrong impression of all
northerners.
I cannot disregard the urge to teach
a cocky and irresponsible down-east-
erner-I refuse to use the word
"damned" that he has placed himself
in the wrong catagory, he is not a
Yankee, but one of those down-east-
erners who has forgotten, or perhaps
never has learned that we are now a
single body-politic, a society of in-
dividuals rather than a, nation dis-
integrating under sectional strife,
thus rendering the word "confeder-
ate" non-applicable in the sense in
which it was used by the down-east-
erner. To be consistent with the
above statement, I hurry to add that
I am not using the term "down-east-'
erner" referring to the down-east,
but rather to this particular down-
easterner.
Next, may I suggest that the re-
marks concerning the customs of the
South were not exactly suited to the
purpose of our Eastern friend in light
of the fact the criminal records of
northern cities by far are darker than
in the South. To this our friend may
reply that the rapid industrial de-
velopment of the North is responsible
for such conditions, but at the same
time he must remember that the ac-
tivity of cheap northern politicians in
the South following the Civil War can
be called upon to account for part of
the attitude of the southern white
toward the Negro, and that these
same politicians were guilty of even
greater crimes, affecting more people,
and having longer enduring conse-
quences than lynchings. And in pass-
ing I also wish to remark relative to
discriminatory judicial proceedings of
which our friend spoke. A knowledge
of the history of the reconstruction
period following the Civil War will
cast some light upon some very
shameful discriminatory judicial pro-
ceedings on the part of northernes.
But, be all this as it may, my point
is that while our Southern Gal was
criticising only minor social and rec-
reational customs of the North, our
Eastern friend, in his consternation,
alluded to customs of a nature wholly
beyond the appropriateness of the
subject at hand, and I grieve to say,
in a manner wholly not within keep-
ing with our feeling toward our
Southern friends.
Lastly, while I appreciate the ad-
vice, offered by our friend of the East
to the Southern Gal, that while one is
among people having different cus-
toms one should conform to those
customs and try to learn something
from them, I might suggest that he
practice what he preaches, and while
with the Romans do as the Romans
do, for he is a down-easterner mis-
representing the philosophy of the
Middle-West.
-An American.
You May Like It
To the Editor:
For various reasons I would like to
see this letter in print. First, I

would like for these Northerners to
know that there is one southern girl;
who dearly loves their northland. My
friends in the south couldn't under-
stand why I would want to come upl
hear and live in this "nest of
Yankees" for eight weeks. They
said, "You'll find them so cold, aus-
tere, and arrogant." However, I only1
smiled, and came on, not knowing a
soul. I haven't regretted it for one
minute, for these people are most1
intriguing, and I am fascinated with1
their expressions and mannerisms. j

I rise in defense of the Michigan
coed! Disillusioned One, whose
lamentations appeared in this col-
umn yesterday, has grossly misrep-
resented the feminine half of this
campus by reference to one or two
sad cases. Strangely enough, how-
ever, the fault lies not with Disil-
lusioned One, as many might infer.
The real seat of the difficulty becomes
clear after an exhaustive case study of
his own words: "At last on Friday
night I shook some forty hands at
the League, and finally ended up at
the dance hall."
Now I ask you, how could any
mortal, including Michigan coeds,
ever run the gauntlet of the average
reception line at the initial function
of the social season-especially a line
forty handshakes long--and come
out feeling fit enough to act normal
and be sociable for the rest of the
evening! Humanly impossible, I tell
you!
I suggest that the solution for Dis-
illusioned One and all the rest of his
fellow sufferers is to start a move-
ment fdr the merciless extermination
of all reception lines more than three
handshakes long, or else introduce
the Chinese handshake into Ameri-
can social circles as a permanent in-
stitution. Then, and then only, will
all guests attsocial occasions arrive at
the end of the reception line free of
psychosis and with right hands intact
instead of squeezed to a pulp. Then
shall the Michigan coed included ar-
rive at the dance hall in full splendor,
and shine forth in all her true glory
until the last waltz is played and
the morning Daily thuds distractingly
on the front porch.
-One Whose Hand Still Aches.
Roul-Up
To the Editor:
Dear Editor:
Well, my boy, I'm grinning at you.
Brave man! You have managed to ex-
pose a whole lot to the gaze of the
Southern Gal that had better been
left in the northern wash. First
there was the Dowager Duchess Of-
ficious Official. Of course you had to
print that one. She admitted that
this northern University had to pro-
tect its girls on the dance floor by re-
fusing to permit introductions to be
made there. She declared that it
would have been all right with her if
the girls had gone in and executed a
Lesbian duet about the dance floor,
although this had not occurred to
Southern Gal as a way out.
Then there was advice to Southern
Gal from someone who had earned
her spangles in Ann Arbor; "Remem-
ber, honey, that a bird in the hand is
wtrth any number on the dance
floor." She might have added,
"Come up and se me sometime."
But where did you get that Bounc-
ing Baby "Yankee?" The little fel-
low laid down his Winnie and Pooh
long enough to say he was going to
teach courtesy and then exhibited the
nastiest bias and badmanners that
could possibly come under the mild
heading of discourtesy. It would be
easy enough to answer him with ref-
erences to Capone; the Purple Mob;
Herron, Illinois, and the Black Le-
gion. But what's the point? Must
you allow unhousebroken pups of his
sectional arrogance and stupidity to
trail their innocent accidents across
your pages? Better if he had re-
mained illiterate!
In short, after reading your series
of Northern rebuttals and seeing
your little box pleading to be let out
of any attempt to square the row
you got the sheet into, I ask, "Is it
true what they say about Dixie? If
it is, that's where I belong." I leave
you your chivalrous, broadminded,
courteous Northern defenders.
Yours for bigger and better dipe-
changing and milkwarming.

beautiful campus, lovely buildings
and is a wonderful school for educa-
tional purposes.
I think the social committee of this
University is to be complimented on
its wide range of social events. If you
haven't been too busy studying, there
have been worlds of things to do
daily. I attended the first reception
dance unescorted and everyone knows
what a crowd there was. A very nice
Michigan boy asked me to dance and
I spent a very enjoyable evening. For
all the other dances I have met other
boys and have had a most ejoyable
c\ ening. I think 25 cents, is a very
small sum to spend to attend any of
the University dances and although I
have only had to spend one quarter
it was well spent.
I have met many interesting people
and I can't understand when anyone
says they aren't enjoying school here.
One boy had this argument: "I'm not
having a good time here, I'm usedto
going to a smaller university, where
everyone knows me." I replied:
"Aren't we all from smaller schools,
but aren't you glad to have the op-
portunity to make new friends and
meet new people?" I asked him if he
had tried making new friends and he
said, "No, I expect them to do that."
There's the thing in a nut shell! I
attended the University Tea yesterday
afternoon, unescorted, and had an
excellent time. I looked around for
a place to deposit my 25 cents as I
came through the door but found no
one was interested in taking it and let
me say, that whoever is responsible
for these afternoon tea dances needs
also to be complimented, for where
I come from we have silver teas.
I like the dances here. For a change,
it seems very nice to be able tofinish
one dance with the boy you are
dancing with, than being cut in and
tagged as is the custom in the Middle
West in some sections. Then too,
don't you think it's a grand thing to
be able to pick an escort from the
various states represented in this
University? Just think what a break
the boys get, if they don't like North-
ern girls, they can select Southern or
Eastern or Western girls. I should
think that would be very handy. If
you don't like the Northern coeds,
whom you say have a cold look, you
can select a warm sunny looking
Southern girl or a friendly Western
girl
So much for that! I think the
"Yankee" who had his say in this
column was a little unkind, don't you
think? After all, we should be nice
to our guests, for think of the mileage
they cover just to attend Michigan
U. Anyway I like this school. It
registers 120 degrees on our porch
where I come from; the Middle West
is a grand place, but not in the sum-
mer. You'll find the friendliest peo-
pie in the U.S.A. in that region, but
if you want to keep cool, better stay
here.
Here's the solution, if everyone will
smile at everyone else at the dance
toiy ight, then all the Southerners,
Northerners, Westerners, and East-
erners will have a good time and we'll
have a nice big happy family. For it
takes very little effort to be friendly
and cheerful. I for one am thankful
a:' d glad that I have the opportunity
to attend Michigan University this
summer, and get a big thrill every
time I cross the campus.
I've always had uninteresting ideas
about summer school and preferred
todring the U.S.A. instead. But Mich-
igan U. has changed my idea, and as
far as I'm concerned "Three Cheers"
for it. I plan to recommend it to all
of my friends.
-Middle Western Girl.
. . . and Lastly.. .
To the Editor:
It is unfortunate for the rest of us
Southerners that such a demonstra-
tion should have been made at The
League by "Southern Gal" and we

hope we shall not be judged by her.
"Soutlern Gal," did you expect
them to change their customs up here
just for you? Are you in the habit
of going to dances at home unescort-
ed?"
I can't understand where oh where
in the South she must have come
from for everywhere I've been girls
never think of going to a dance with-
out a date and usually when you ar-
rive there's at least one extra one
waiting in the "stag line" to dance
with you. It just isn't the proper
thing for girls to go to dances with-
out dates where I come from and I
doubt if they'd let you in at all with-
out one.
I like the North because it is dif-
ferent and for one Southern Girl I
can say I'm having the time of my
life and I think the people up here are
swell.

Though it is of little import here, I am inclined
to believe that like incidents have happened in
