In The End . ..'
WITH the administration of the New
Deal, its liberal policies and ncw
demands upon the citizen, the American news-
paper finds that it must alter its role in its service
to the people.
The indifference of the press to the vital prob-
lems of today has left the public without back-
ground or proper attitude upon which to base ten-
tative conclusions on issues upon which it is ex-
pected to pass. The lack of information and a
sufficiently critical attitude concerning the prob-
4em& arising from our industrial civilization tend
to make the average.citizen callous to these prob-
Poverty, unemployment, poor conditions, in fact,
general insecurity must be approached as problems
capable of solution. Our democratic form of gov-
ernment is constructed to meet such a crisis as is
now occurring in the country's development. The
experimental element in our system binds us to no
fixed form of society, except that toleration and
social equality must be respected.
Experimentation is often regarded with concern
by many persons, particularly those with vested
interests, as undesirable for their welfare. In
dealing with the most overwhelming problems of
our day, it is essential that the social point of view
be taken, that society be regarded as a whole.
Such terms as working class and social justice
have heretofore been associated with radical prop-
aganda, but with the advent of a liberal national
administration have taken on practical signifi-
cance in the national life.
More than ever before the people are receptive
to- liberal and advanced ideas. The widespread dis-
satisfaction over the present organization exists
cannot be overlooked. Failure of many trusted in-
stitutions to weather the crisis of the past four
years has destroyed the confidence of many per-
sons. Their confidence cannot be expected to be
regained if these institutions are not altered so as
to overcome the causes of their failure. The ex-
tent to which the government should control our
own economic institutions is probably the most
'vital problem of our day.
Violent change is to be avoided as far as po-
sible, not because of the violence involved, but
because violence inevitably ends in reaction dur-
ing which the ends sought for are lost..- Careful
and continual experimentation is the most & fec-
tive method of solving our problems, but, as Presi-
dent Roosevelt so realistically put it, you can't ex-
pect to make a hit every time you come to bat.
Qlf (X * t
HERE ARE A NUMBER of possi-
bilitiesTwhich suggest themselves as1
means to outlaw war. Among these is that of Wil-
liam James, the eminent psychologist, who, in his
essay, "The Moral Equivalent for War,' proposes
a method by which the energies normally dispersed
in active warfare could be diverted into huge gov-
ernment projects. The youth of the land, he be-
lieves, could be drafted into reforestation and'
public works projects at far less cost to society in
terms of human lives and dollars than the stupen-
dous expenditures necessitated by war-time activ-
ities. With the exception of the dole stigma at-
tached to the modern CWA and CCC projects,.
these enactments might be compared to versions
of Professor James' conception, minus the draft
The intense spirit of competition in college
sports probably does a great deal to alleviate thei
fundamental urge of many students to display their
physical prowess in an aggressive manner. When
this love of competition is carried out of schooli
Finally, human society throughout, the world
may adopt a negative course of action. That is,
war must be pictured as it really is. The printing of
gruesome pictures is 'but an infinitesimal item in
this problem which goes back to the roots of life it-
self. War must be made to appear to youth as
the coward's way out. It must be depicted in all
of its unlovely reality. Such contributions as the
movie version of "All Quiet on the Western Front"
and the peace propaganda of progressive groups
throughout the world probably do more to shatter
the illusions of eager youth than all the statistics
of human and economic losses in existence.
Always, we have assumed without critical exam-
ination the assumption that war in itself is in-
evitable, that jealousy and the spirit of conflict are
intrinsic in human nature. We have been led to
believe by the military geniuses of our country
that the best offense is the best defense. Self-
preservation was the motive for war with primitive
tribes. Today, the same essential motive is para-
mount. When people can be made to see the obvious
contradiction in a war-time policy which advocates
the use of death-dealing engines of destruction in
order to insure this self-preservation, the futility
of war will be borne home with deadening convic-

AT THE MAJESTIC
"THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY
The Great McGonigle ...... W. C. Fields
Wally Livingston ..........Joe Morrison
Betty McGonigle .......... Judith Allen
Cleopatra Pepperday ........ Jan Duggan
Albert Wendelschaffer ......Baby Leroy
And .................. Assorted Sheriffs
Anyone who likes W. C. Fields has a good eve-
ning ahead of them at the Majestic, because the
show is all Fields and then some. The other char-
acters are nothing but stooges for the king of
buffoonery. All but Baby Leroy, that is, and Fields
is his stooge in a few short bits.
If anyone has a prejudice against Fields, they
had better stay away, because when Fields isn't
center stage the picture lags and becomes boring.
He's the key man, the end man, and the inter-*
locutor for the whole show.
The story is the Odyssey of a traveling stock
company under the direction of the Great McGon-
igle, two jumps ahead of the sheriffs, and two
jumps behind their pay. The only members of the
company who really matter are Judith Allen as old
McGonigle's daughter, and Joe Morrison as the
rich young college boy who is in love with her and
wants to go into acting. Morrison, by the way,
recently sang with George Olsen at Westwood.
The show concerns their stop in Belfontaine,
where the accumulating bills and sheriffs threaten
to close the show. Cleopatra Pepperday, a rich
spinster who has a voice like the whistle on a
peanut stand, convinces Fields that she belongs
in his company, with the result that she is willing
to pay some of the bills. Fields is thus able to go
on with the show.
One of the players quits, and Morrison gets his
job, doing a bit of crooning that is in no way old-
fashioned. The play is "The Drunkard," an old-
tme melodrama wth a moral, and is undone so
artistically that it's funny.
The fly in the ointment who succeeds the sheriffs
is Morrison's father, who wants to get his son out
of the clutches of this "brazen hussy" And Baby
Leroy does his bit of pestering in a few bits at the
boarding house. One thing that struck a phony
note, though, was the force with which tomatoes
and ice-cream bounced off Fields' head in spite
of the fact that Baby Leroy has a wing like a
high-school girls' baseball team.
But after the show is over, Fields gets out of his
financial troubles by closing the show, although
Cleopatra is most upset because she didn't get a
chance to appear. The heart troubles are settled
when Mr. Livingston agrees to his son's marriage
and even a stage career providing he can get rid
of old McGonigle.
Fields overhears this and does a neat sidestep,
ending up in a medicine show as the picture ends.
It's all good clean fun, with a lot of laughs. Best
line of the show: Fields describes Miss Pepperday
with: "She looks like a well-kept grave."
The shorts are slightly above normal, with a
comedy lifted from "Charley's Aunt" although
here it's a college boy who pretends to be his
fraternity brother's wife. There's also a nice, rest-
ful "Strange As It Seems," and a Hearst Metro-
tone News that rises above its usual insignificance
with some shots of post-Dollfuss Vienna.

PALMER FIELD -
NO MAN'S LAND
To the Editor:
I should like to set forth, with as much regard
for the feelings of certain people as possible, the
sentiment of the male students who profess a desire
to play tennis. It so happens that by far the best
tennis courts in the city are located on Palmer
Field. However, there is a ruling which prohibits
men students from using the courts except in
mixed tennis. This ruling, if applied with the
slightest degree of common' sense, might prove
quite satisfactory, but unfortunately, that is far
from the case.
Historians tell us repeatedly that moderation is
the best policy, and severity in either direction is
bound to bring a reaction. Such a reaction will
surely result when sufficient public opinion is
swayed and will crush those opposed to it.
Fanatics come and go but while they last, they
produce annoying sore spots. Fanatical enforce-
ment of a rule without cause is unjustifiable when
no possible harm could result. Half the energy I
consumed running men students off the tennis
courts, if laid end to end, would raise the pyramids
three feet - and they call this efficiency!
For a great part of the day not more than two
or three of the many courts are in use. In the
late afternoon and evening a few more are in
use. This shows plainly the unbelievable waste of
college property paid for out of student's tuition.
Men cannot use the practice board or practice their
service. Men are told that Ferry Field is for them
and they will have to make the best of it.
Aside from being a great distance from the
rest of the University, the courts available for sum-
mer students have a rough, hard surface similar to
cement which ruins good tennis. To make matters
worse a strong wind never fails to play havoc
the ball's flight.
At Palmer Field we find as many or more non-
college girls as college girls. Thus men help pay
