necessary political conditions for applying in a
sufficient degree the provisions for disarmament
stipulated in Article VIII of the covenant: there-
fore, not only was Ijaly heavily armed and able
to fall upon a weak African nation, but the whole
situation had to evolve at too high a level of arm-
aments, so that measures against the aggressor
were beyond the means and the responsibilities of
most nations, even the great powers.
"Third-because the provisions for preventing
war stipulated in Article XI of the covenant which
deal with situations likely to lead to war were
not applied for all kinds of reasons of so-called
prudence-prudence, the least wise of the League's
"Fourth-Because France and several other na-
tions were obsessed by the European situation,
owing to Germany's absence from the League and
to the dictatorial regime of that country, which
enables its government to prepare its plans in the
dark and to launch them forth with disquieting
and disconcerting swiftness.
"Fifth-Because England made it obvious from
the outset that military measures under Article
XVI, which provide for punishment of recalcitrant
League members, would not be resorted to.
"Sixth-Because the attitude of the United
States was never clear and never looked as if it
could go beyond neutrality."
Some of these same weaknesses would still re-
main in the League even though remodeled and
with the United States a member. For example,
although the economic clauses would have been
much more effective against Italy, yet the military
clauses would have been impossible to enforce if
Great Britain, the most interested party, had still
refused to invoke military action. Of course, the
greatest value of this reorganization would be
that it would possess a moral strength-it would
prevent aggressive action without any steps of its
own beyond an indication that it was potent and
in earnest.
This is a practical step that we can take towards
eliminating war. It is not ideal, but it is better
than hoping to win peace by isolationist policies
which, first, will not keep us out of war, and sec-
ond, will aggravate rather than improve the world
If anyone who objects to joining the League
under such conditions can offer a better proposal
for attaining world peace, we would like in all
sincerity to hear of it.
Jesus, Lewis
And Dr. Lynch.. ..
SINCLAIR LEWIS shouldn't have
gotten an honorary degree, de-
clared Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, president of Lebanon
Valley College, according to the Associated Press.
Addressing the Philadelphia convention of the
Christian Endeavour, he said:
"I cannot see how any college president could
describe Sinclair Lewis's attitude toward life as
that of an evangelist. Elmer Gantry certainly does
not represent the ministry. The Kiwanis, Rotary,
Lions and other kindred clubs are not composed
of 'Babbits.' Lewis hates the commonplace. He
hates Main Street. Jesus Christ would glorify the
commonplace and Main Street."
We didn't expect Babbit to recognize himself.
If he did have a slight suspicion that he was being
satirized, he'd probably retort in just such lan-
guage, saying that it is the will of the Lord that
men with small minds be created, yea, even unto
some college presidents.
The literary fame of Sinclair Lewis may not be
immortal; if it is not, it is because his writing
was aimed to cure specific evils during his own
lifetime. His Gantry shocked the church-not
because it wasn't true, but because it wasn't said.
His Main Street made Chambers of Commerce
somewhat self-conscious for a time, and only a
time. His Ann Vickers had some immediate and
effective results in prison reforms. His It Can't
Happen Here pictured dramatically and effectively
the little steps by which unsuspecting Americans
arrive at Fascism. He is not an evangelist in the
sense that he sees through a haze of optimism.
His human nature is starkly realistic, unpleasant
and profane at times, even as we ourselves are.
We can't think that Dr. Lynch has any great
conception of Christian theology if he believes that
its highest ideal is the narrow materialism of
Main Street.


to effect economies in living ex-
penses, are now purchasing milk from farmers
in the vicinity of Ann Arbor. The milk is a few
cents cheaper, but it is unpasteurized and dan-
=gerous to use.
In the -past, a constant stream of cases . of
undulent, typhoid and scarlet fevers, tuberculosis,
diphtheria and sore throats have been found
to result from the use of unpasteurized milk. About
100 summer school students in 1916 died as a result
of a typhoid fever epidemic which was traced
to the use of such milk. At the present time, there
are at least a half a dozen cases of undulent fever
in Ann Arbor so caused.
As a result, there has been passed a law which
prohibits public eating places from using such
milk, and constant vigilance is exercised to prevent.
its illegal use..
In spite of this vigilance,,some restauranteurs
and confectionaries from time to time slip in un-
pasteurized milk. Inquire, to the best of your
ability, the-source of the milk being served to you,
,and report to the city health department all vio-
However, the health authorities cannot prevent
you from using this milk in your home. The Daily
urges you to consider whether the risk of your life
is worth the small economy.

pro and con regarding radio advertising. We
don't want to enter into the controversy too deep-
ly but do feel that a blurb heard over a small sta-
tion the other day deserves to be put on record.
After a few musical numbers had been played "by
means of electrical transcription," the announc-
er sailed into his commercial, telling of the excel-
lence of Monarch's Finer Foods. He ended his
plug' with these scintillating words, "and remem-
ber, we want every one of you in the radio audience
to become Monarch Pickle-Conscious." Zounds!

If your set can pick up WJZ in the daytime, a
good bet will be to to tune in on that station at
2:15 this afternoon, for the Vienna Philharmonic
orchestra will be on the air for a half hour broad-
cast from Austria. Bruno Walter will be the
gentleman on the podium. Over the same sta-
tion at 9 pim. today Frank Black will conduct his
string symphony group.
* * *
Tommy Dorsey, who is at present on tour with
his orchestra, will be rewarded for his efforts next
month when he steps into Fred Waring's spot on
the Tuesday night Ford program. We heard Tom-
my a few weeks ago and the band sounded first
rate. Bud Freeman, tenor man acquired from
Ray Noble, is playing many nice choruses for
Tommy during their jam numbers and, on the oc-
casion we heard him, even 'modulated into the
last chorus for the band on his tenor. Joe Dixon,
the clarinet man, knows plenty of licks and has
a nice approach into a solo but lacks versatility in
the use of his licks. Dorsey himself, although per-
haps eclipsed by Jack Teagarden, is one of the
best of the present day trombonists. We won't
be at all surprised to see Tommy's outfit surpass
brother Jimmy's in popularity.
* *o *
AT 9 P.M. NEXT THURSDAY practically every
station will carry Gov. Alf M. Landon's ac-
ceptance speech. The following is an example of
what may ensue:
Scene: The Landon kitchen. The Governor is
seated in a chair, smoking a pipe.
Knock, knock, knock!
Landon: Come in. (Enter John Hamilton and
a Host of Prominent Republicans.) Oh, hello
John Hamilton and the Host of Prominent Re-
publicans: Hello, Alf.
Landon: Mother! We have company.
J. H. and the HOPR: We've come to tell you
that we have chosen you to run for the presidency
this fall, Alf.
Landon: Gosh, fellers, er, ah, er,-, you shouldn't
have done it. Thanks an awful lot. (Exit J. H. and
the HOPR.)
Landon (turns to Mrs. Landon and then speaks):
Well, mother, what do you know about that?
* 4' *
Next Saturday will be a red letter day for lovers
of legitimate music. At 3:30 p.m. a broadcast from
the Central City, Colorado, Music Festival will
present the concluding portion of the Gilbert and
Sullivan operetta, "The Gondoliers" over NBC. The
New York Philharmonic-Symphony orchestra will
broadcast a two hour program over WOR at 7:30
p.m. Jose Iturbi will conduct. At 8 p.m. Bruna
Castagna, contralto, will be featured over CBS
with a concert orchestra in a program that will in-
clude Penso, by Tosti; The Tyrst, by Sibelius; and
Una Voce Poco Fa, from "The Barber of Seville,"
by Rossini.
* * *'
AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT you'll hear a Class A
dance band if the men who make out the radio
programs are telling the truth, for Joe Haymes is
scheduled to broadcast at that late hour. Haymes
played at Walled Lake the greater part of last
summer, but lost most of his men to Tommy
Dorsey and Ray Noble last fall. Now he has a
new aggregation that is destined to go places.
Freddie Fallensby, his tenor man, has a style of
his own and certainly rides a nice chorus.
he meant, I judge, was that teachers are needlessly
cautious. With that I agree. The way to pre-
serve and extend any right is to use it, courageous-
ly and discreetly, and thus to accustom the public

to its exercise. A good part of the trouble, I
think, comes from general timidity and occasional
bad judgment on the part of teachers.
Nothing so enrages a community as criticism
from without. Your friend was wise in seeking
to prevent any appearance of such criticism. A
few words misunderstood might easily destroy the
free atmosphere which apparently he has, in very
unpromising surroundings, managed to maintain
in his classroom. -Observer.

On Peace..



N CASE you missed the splendid
article by Salvador De Madariaga
in Sunday's New York Times, we want to cull
for you some of the ideas presented by the famous
Spanish statesman on the subject, "How Can the
World Insure the Peace?" We have had many ar-
ticles on the subject, but the virtue of this one
is that it answers in very specific terms and with-
courage the question set before it.
The first step in the path to peace is to make
'the League of Nations acceptable to the United
States. Until the League is a community of na-
tions with every power represented, it is helpless.
To do this, he recommends a modification of Ar-
ticle XI of the covenant under a clause of unani-
mity without the votes of the parties, and the
economic clauses of Article XVI. "The contribu-
tion of the United States toward saving the world
from war must be nothing short of making known
beforehand the circumstances in which the United
States is ready to cooperate in the settling "of con-
flicts-and, what is far more important, in the
forestalling of them.,"
How does he want to modify these articles?
First, the military clauses of Article XVI should
be applied only by States which would have had
to go to war in the same circumstances even if
the covenant had not existed. This military action
would be taken on a background of economic re-
strictions applied iby the entire League. With
every country in the League, and Article VIII
(disarmament) accepted, the enforcement of the
military clauses would be reduced to a less catas-
trophic scale.
This is a realistic picture. It is not our ideal for
world peace, but it is a goal that is capable of
achievement, and within our lifetime, if we will.
Along with these changes in the covenant, he
insists that the League then regard itself respon-
sible for everything -going on in the international
wrnld and ease to look nrudently the other wav

Freedom For Teachers
To the Editor:
The editorial on academic freedom( appearing
in Friday's Daily, was read with interest by your
correspondent. The subject is a very live one, as
the Daily suggests, and deserves more attention.
For one thing, there is some confusion of thought
among teachers, as well as others, on the subject.
The freedom of the teacher is confused with
freedom of teaching. The teacher has, out of the
classroom, the rights of any citizen, among these,
the right of free speech. School authorities some-
times try to interfere with the exercise of these
rights. Teachers organizations\ should fight
against such interference.
Within the class room, the right to teach comes
into play. This is not the same as the right of
free speech, the right of the .teacher to express
his opinion. It is rather the right of the teacher
to teach the pupil, not what to think, but how to
think, logically, free from prejudice and bias, and
with no respnsibility except to his consciousness
of the social welfare. This is what is meant by
