reputedly far-removed in time from the atrocities,
of barbarism. Civilization has made some mag-
nificent contributions to the various epochs in the
march towards improvement in society, but the
long parade of cultures in world history leave us
with an utter sense of dismay at the cruelty and
stupidity of mankind. It seems unbelievable that
the majority of people are gullible enough to sub-
ject themselves to crushing debts for the express
purpose of paying for past and present war ma-
chines. The vivid lessons of history invariably pass
for naught when the false ideals of nationalism
sweep across continents and seas.
Both Germany and Japan have demonstrated
the inherent impotency of the League of Nations
when a crisis threatens. A system of International
Police has been suggested by some writers as a kind
of panacea in enforcing universal order, but the
cost of financing groups from the various nations
would be prohibitive. A more serious difficulty,
develops, however, in getting the important powers
to co-operate. When incidental squabbles over
armaments and tariffs divide Europe into hostile
camps, the liklihood of obtaining concerted action
seems remote. It is also doubtful whether or not
the International Police could qiell the power am-
bitions of a determined and desperate nation
such as Germany or Japan.
The use of force as a measure of keeping
peace is always open to question. The chances of
permanent tranquility must necessarily rest with
the economic and political motives of the leaders
in power and with the great organs of public opin-
ion, the newspaper and radio. Until these instru-
ments of control can be made more socially con-
scious, it seems reasonable to assume that strife
and bloodshed will continue indefinitely.'

The European
Firecracker..
E UROPE, the battle-field of the uni-
verse, once again prepares its lands
for war. With the eachoes from the detonations
of the big guns of the World War barely Bushed,
and with the scars and mutilations of this con-
flict only beginning to heal, this great incubator
of modern civilization writhes and twists in the
throes of feverish anticipation of another chaos.
Is it any wonder that the goddess of peace turns
r rrowfully away, while the war lord, Mars, stamps
ruthlessly over the accumulated contributions of a
score of centuries?
Evidence of the long-feared rearmament race is
found in the strengthening of the naval and land
forces of virtually all the major powers, including
the United States and Japan. Fear, jealousy, dis-
trust, revenge, intense nationalism - all serve as
glowing coals under the cauldron of seething and
inimical interests.
With the 1870 humiliation still rankling among
her populace, France, along with her allies, sought
to crush Germany beyond rejuvenation with cer-
tain of the clauses of the Versailles treaty. She
has remained incredibly suspicious of her northern
neighbor since 1870, and doubly so since 1918.
Thus, each Nazi demonstration or display of
military power throws her into a mood of doubt
and apprehension. Germany, under the domineer-
ing reins of Herr Hitler, has slowly begun the
laborious process of unification. With the idea
in mind of retrieving her former place among
world powers, it seems entirely conceivable that
Germany's intensive program of nationalistic and
"economic self-sufficiency" is directed primarily
against France. Successful revenge in this instance,
would be doubly sweet for the Hitlerites. Not only
would they achieve retribution for what they con-
sider the inequitable terms of the Versailles Treaty
but also they would repay in full the attitude of
superiority and overbearing iinflexibility adopted
by the French.
Continued disagreement on armament ratios, in
addition toavarious opposing commercial interests,
have created a tension in the relations between
the two countries that monthly seems to grow
more strained. Figures quoted from a recent Asso-
ciated Press dispatch reveal that during the last
three years France has increased her fighting
force by 65,000 men. She has accomplished this
by hiring civilians to execute the tasks formerly
allotted to soldiers. Through a lengthening of the
period of conscript service, she may raise the-
figure to 125,000. France has an active army of
624,213 men f'or her 48,000,000 population. Count-
ing her entire army and'reserves, she boasts an
aggregate of 6,952,213 men, or a percentage of
144.83 for every 1000 population. Germany, sup-
posedly, has only 100,000 men in her active army
and reserve force. While this means but 1.54 per
thousand people for her entire population of 64,-
'776,000, her open rebellion against treaty restric-
tions has boosted her potential strength consider-
ably beyond this figure. Thus, the Nazis have in-
creased their army and navy budget for 1934 from
$268,000,000 to approximately $358,000,000 and her
aviation budget from $28,000,000 to $84,000,000. In
addition, about $100,000,000 has been allotted to
the Nazi storm troops. It will require but the

tiniest spark to enflame this hotbed of mutual hate
and fear.

EFORM, THAT FAR-FLUNG cry of
an oppressed or dissatisfied people,
has echoed and reverberated time and again
through the ages. Whether it be the high-handed
policies of a Caesar or Nero, or the impractical
supervision of a Czar Nicholas or Hoover, the in-
evitable reaction has persisted. Rarely does an
undercurrent of opposition to an existing set of
conditions remain long in abeyance. Sooner or
later the smouldering fires of dissension are fanned
into flames of active revolt and chaos results. The
French Revolution and the rise of the proletariat
in Russia form classical examples of a powerful
craving for change out of which reform ensued.
In considering reform, the question invariably
arises as to the part intelligence plays or does not
play in achieving a change for the better. If we
were to examine the Russian situation during the
Great War and immediately afterwards, we would
find that the great Rusian peasantry seethed and
boiled with the seeds of revolt. Entangled in a
great European struggle which it could not quite
understand, and with starvation growing increas-
ingly imminent, it manifested its discontent in the
second of the great movements of the revolution.
Such an uprising as this received its impetus from
strong emotion crystallized into action by the
leadership of the so-called intellectuals. Spurred
to drastic action by conditions that affected direct-
ly their physical well-being, the Inasses needed
only the spark of leadership to kindle their pent-
up feelings into open rebellion.
It is at this point of crisis, this period of ebul-
lient unrest that intelligence enters the picture.
Without intelligence revolution in itself becomes
mere chaos. It is change, to be sure, but change
alone' is not reform. The history of millions of
years of evolution may be either progi'essive or
retrogressive. When we speak of reform, we have in
mind something which involves at once an altera-
tion in a prevailing situation or set of conditions
with a conscious effort at improvement. To initiate
any program of successful reform, a carefully
thought-out program of advancement must be
readily accessible for substitution. Opposition
founded on pure emotion seldom takes the time
to reason out a suitable plan to institute in place
of the deposed status quo. Its action tends to be
purely destructive.
In our own country, the grievances of labor
against capital flare into conflict almost daily,
as witness the current Minneapolis affair. We see
on all sides a crying need of social and political
reform. The general body of workers in the United
States will probably not rise up as a mass unit
against capitalism, unless it becomes deprived of
the bare economies of life. If the predicament
should ever appear where the masses of the country
are confronted by bbth hunger and lack of necessi-
ties, history may repeat itself.
The plight of the American worker, however, is
not quite analogous to the position of the Russian
peasant. Where Russia has suffered centuries of
crushing oppression, America has experienced only
intermittent periods of discontent. Our profit-
economy system has instilled in every laborer's
mind the hope of ultimately becoming a capitalist
himself, while formerly in Russia, the iron confines
of a caste system made elevation up the social
ladder a practical impossibility. England has a
scheme of preserving order, which, while peculiar,
has proved effective. She quells open opposition
almost ruthlessly, and then, after a certain length
of time has elapsed, institutes the reform grad-
ually through legislative enactment.
The traditional attitude of the American cit-
izenry works against a bloody revolution. Rather+
it would proceed a little more cautiously. In
either case, the relationship between intelligence
and reform remains constant. Without the long-
range view of conscious planning, revolution de-
generates into a short-range view of change for the
sake of change. It is conceivable that in the future
all our legislation will take on the character of
reform. With the ever-growing body of intelli-
gentsia in this country, we may hope to see change'
which is calculated to bring to humanity, social,'
political, and economic betterment.

Health Work Is
Discussed By
Mabel E. Rugen
Not only does the health program
at University High School aim to im-
prove the general welfare of the stu-
dents there, it also serves as a "prov-
ing ground' for working procedures
and techniques which "will aid other
schools in the state in planning their
health programs."
Thus did Dr. Mabel E. Rugen of the
physical education department de-
scribe the health work at University
High School in a speech yesterday
before an audience of the fourio'clock
lecture series, sponsored by the School
of Education.
With an audhience .composed largely
of school teachers and administra-
tors, Dr. Rugen listed certain prin-
ciples which she styled "essential to
the development of a satisfactory
school health program." She gave 20
of these, and also offered an equal
number of procedures which have
been to put these "principles" into
practice.

MICHIGAN REVIEW
"SMARTY"

**

Vicki . .............Joan Blondell
Tony .................. Warren William
Vernon.........Edward Everett Horton
Anita ..................... Claire Dodd
George................Frank McHugh
The title "Smarty" is most misleading in thisf
movie. The story is. an attempt on comedy over
the whims of seductive little Joan Blondell as
Vicki, Tony's wife. She falls for the effervescent
Vernon, who is just a floating acquaintance, and
then leaves Tony when he slaps her - joining
Vernon as a loving wife. But Vernon does not
interest her enough so she gets him to slap her
and runs back to Tony.
That's the story - a feeble attempt to empha-
size the cave-man in Warren William and the
Cleopatra in Joan Blondell. Warren William's
acting is far below "Gold Diggers of 1933" or
"Upperworld," mainly because his, role made him
into a weak-willed male, swayed by silly feminine
charms - which would never do for the real War-
ren William Joan Blondell, the gushing, painted
sorceress, is even worse than in "Havana Widows."
It appears that Claire Dodd and Frank Mc-
Hugh are around - just to be around. McHugh's
humor is below par and Edward Everett Horton
makes a not-so-convincing ass. It remains for
Claire Dodd to save the dignity of the perform-
ance, and she rises to the point very well. Al-
though she is cast as a spectator, she gives an
exhibition of what a good actress can do to add
a note of distinction to an otherwise hopeless
show. Since "Foodlight Parade" and "Ex-Lady"
she has been resting, but it is earnestly hoped that
her comeback will exclude any more "Smarties"
and that she will be recognized by the film moguls
as good material.
The Michigan's short subjects incude a mediocre
Broadway Brevity operetta, with Jane Froman
proving conclusively that she should stick to
radio. Some of this two-star rating must be shared
by an excellent Rice Sportlight and marvelous
photography in a nature short . --D.R.B.

His Accomplice ............:Lyle Talbot
Chauffeur ...............Frank McHugh
"Heat Lightning" is apparently little more than
stop-gap material for a Thursday-Friday stay at
the Majestic: The cast, billed as "all-star" to cloak
the fact that there is no star (although Aline
MacMahon was heralded as appearing in her first
starring role) is given a weakly plotted drama to
work with and nothing is added to the value of
the whole by a standout Coca-Cola advertisement
and a lame ending.
Aided and abetted, or perhaps you prefer hin-
dered, by typical performances of seven actors and
actresses who have been knocking on the door of
stardom for some time past, "Heat Lightning"
manages to be mildly entertaining throughout its
portrayal of the adventures of two gunmen (Tal-
bot and Foster) who barge into a desert gas-sta-
tion "manned" by the Misses MacMahon and
Dvorak.
Foster is revealed as a former play-around pal
of Miss MacMahon's in the wide-open days of
Oklahoma's past; Miss Dvorak is her impetuous
younger sister who is tormented by the drabness
of performing a man's work on the desert and not
being allowed to attend the town dance with a
pool-hall tout who later on spends the night with
her in old-fashioned melodrama style. Myra and
Jerry do likewise. From there in to the home
