Today Is
Tag Day .. .
The Daily presented, to summer
readers the story of 125 yongsters who were en-
jdying the privileges of the University's Fresh Air
Camp which is located at Patterson Lake. The
Daily sent a correspondent to the camp last week
to obtain first-hand information regarding the
actual benefits of such a camp for the under-priv-
ileged children of Ann Arbor, Detroit, and Ham-
tramek. This correspondent spent a day and a
night at the camp, eating and sleeping with the
boys, observing their daily round of activities,
measuring the degree of mental and physical sat-
isfaction to be derived from such an undertaking.
This correspondent's story of what actually takes
place at the University's camp was presented to
The Daily's readers in an attempt to carry to them
the same conviction of the worth-whlileness of the
camp as was portrayed to the correspondent dur-
ing his brief stay there. It was done in order
to convince Summer Session students of the value
a'nd importance of the enterprise.
The Fresh Air Camp, located approximately 20
miles from Ann Arbor, consists of 180 acres of fields
and woods, possesses a fine beach, and has suit-
'able equipment which has been donated by indi-
viduals and institutions believing in the camp and
the worthwhile purposes for which it exists. Its
financial support comes largely from contributions
made each year by students of the University.
FOr the past few years, due to existing economic
conditions, University students have not been able
to afford such generous contributions as was for-
merly possible. The fund has annually decreased
in size with the result that many youngsters who'
were in need of the camp's benefits have been
forced to remain at home --home in such in-
stances usually being the two-by-four confines
of a crowded tenement.
The value of a two-week stay in the open for
such under-privileged boys cannot be over-esti-
mated. Yet the directors of the camp have been
powerless to prevent the decrease in enrollment
at the camp which has been brought about through
the unavoidable decrease in operating funds.
Now the opportunity has arrived for Summer
Session students of the University to do their share
toward supporting the camp. By supplementing
the funds contributed by students during the
year they can do much to further the advantages
of the camp for the remainder of the summer. Each
student, by foregoing for one day the daily ice
cream soda, movie, or perhaps a package of cig-
'arettes, can - without great personal discomfiture
do his or her share to make some boy's summer a

happy one.
A score of the kiddies now living at the camp
will be in Ann Arbor today to ask for contributions.
Theywill contact students and townspeople on the
campus and on the streets of the city. It is to be
hoped that their efforts will be loyally rewarded,
not because the wearing of a tag will mark the
wearer as a philanthropist, but because the extra
nickel, dime, quarter or dollar added to the camp
fund will - when added to other nickels, dimes,
quarters and dollars - enable other under-nour-
ished, under-fed, and under-privileged children to
get out into the open for a two-week stay at the
University Fresh Air Camp.

over. With the rush and bustle of prosperity dis-
appeared from many workmen's homes the cars,
radios, movie-going, magazines, fine clothes, fine
food - the things that caused the illusion of com-
fort, security and advancement for the individual
workman, working independently, to thrive. The
laborers saw that they had little chance of ever
being anything but laborers, and that even their
children after them faced a tremendous struggle if
they were to break from their class.
Convinced, finally, that they must better them-
selves as laborers if they were to better themselves
at all, they have acknowledged that they are la-
borers, and not embryo capitalists, and have ex-
pressed their desire to act as such. Accordingly
the ranks of the unions have swelled, and the rank
and file of laborers are no longer ashamed that
they are not and never will be in a higher
The guiding philosophy of this great group,
roused so recently to class consciousness, is still
somewhat amorphous. Two tenets, however, are
dominant in all the various examples. The first is
the conviction that labor is not getting its "fair"
share of the returns from industry, and the second
is the determination to use any means available
to get that "fair" share.
Essentially their attitude is, with respect to the
present, an aggrieved one; with respect to the fu-
ture, optimistic. When this movement, like Eng-
land's labor movement, has attained a greater age
and dignity more and subtler reasons may adorn
its philosophy, embellishing these baldfundamen-
tals of "get" and "get it any way you can."
But if organized capital has not, in its long
reign, felt it necessary to profess a concern for
social welfare or for any but selfish ends, then
organized labor, to meet this powerfully entrenched
a'ntagonist, may also unashamedly concentrate its
strength in its own interests for the first pitched
Bold with the small successes already made,
confident in the campanionship of their fellows,
and settled to their task now that they have
resigned themselves to being laborers and resolved
to work as laborers, the American workmen have
a bright outlook indeed. Immediately ahead there
looms a general intensification of labor feeling,
with the prospect of developing a force more effi-
cient both politically and socially than labor now

way of all good punch.
Music! Yes, if you could drag yourself into the
south end of the League. There was Al Cowan and
his band, minus their coats, his singers minus some
of their make-up.
Co-operation of the sexes was at low ebb. They
over-run hostesses and officials dived for safety.-

If there were lilies, the female of the species
stayed in flocks, as did the males - unsocially
separate. "Oh," said one of them turning her back
and wiggling her shoulders. "There he is. Hide me.
That is the third one I've seen. Is he coming over?
I simply won't dance with him!"
And she didn't. He, or someone very much like
him, stared absently at the passing skirts. "Rather
a stupid crowd, don't you think?"
Twelve o'clock, and those not mating for the
evening, passed out- the doors. One o'clock and

Movie-goers will find nothing novel in the plot
of "Operator 13." It is the story by the late Robert
W. Chambers of two spies, on opposite warring
sides, who meet, fall in love, and then find them-
selves faced with the predicament of having the
one hunt down the other.
What cinema-addicts will find enjoyable about
"Operator 13" is that for once the scene is not a
World War one, rather, it is an excellent picture
of the Civil War, admirably acted by Marion Davies
and Gary Cooper. What the plot lacks in orig-
inality, the casting and direction easily make up
fo;. Director Richard Bolslavsky gives us our
best movie portrait of the Civil Wa, with strik-
ingly real scenes of the battle field, booming
cannons, and cavalry charges.
Nor does "Operator 13" fail to give us a glimpse
into the "flower of the South" with accurate scenes
of rambling Confederate mansions, uider which
roofs handsome young men and charming belles
dance to the music of negro violinists and con-
verse lightly with white-bearded gentlemen. Negro
life is introduced through the medium of the four
Mills brothers whose music not only delights the
duskies of the film but the audience as well.
While the Civil War raged in grandiose fashion
at Bull Run and Gettysburg, spies of the Union
and Confederate forces were staging their own
private, silent duel. "Operator 13" concerns itself
primarily with the latter phase. Marion Davies,
who has been an actress in Washington, joins the
secret service of the North while Gary Cooper, as
Capt. Jack Gaillard, plays an important role in the
intelligence service of the Confederacy.
They first meet in Martnsburg, where, as Oper-
ator 13, Miss Davies appears as an octaroon. Later
she becomes the daughter of a Southern landowner
and meets the handsome captain again. The love
scene is one of mutual affection, but soon after,
Gaillard is informed that she is a Northern spy.
After using the customary epithets on her, Cooper
finds that he is still in love and finally they are
Highly, even overly, melodramatic "Operator 13"
is carried to a successful presentation by profi-
cient acting of its principals coupled with better
than ordinary direction and photography. It is
Made up of emotional characters, presumably for
an emotional "audience, yet it remains an excellent
picture. -R.S.R.

after busy visits to Puerto Rico and
the Virgin Islands.
The cruiser Houston steamed across
the Caribbean sea at a Vapid clip to-
ward Columbia, due to arrive at Car-

Mr. Roosevelt took advantage of
his leisure to review his inspection
of the islands and the government's
positions in them. He received a first-
hand picture of social conditions, par-
ticularly in slums and rural life.
Apparently satisfied, the President
expressed the view rehabilitation work
is progressing along the right lines.
The Houston left St. Croix, Virgin

Roosevelt made a hurried inspection
of Federal projects there.
While a tropical sun poured down

the afternoon.

To The Editor:
I am by nature an optimist. It therefore pains
me deeply to find in The Daily a letter on the
Washtenaw County FERA strike above the discour-
aging signature: "Disgusted." Especially is this
true when one reflects that the reasoning upon
which this disgust is based, is both shoddy and
In the first place, is it apparent that Mr. Dis-
gusted took no pains to make a thorough inves-
tigation of the facts concerned. Perhaps he was
not disgusted enough.
Of course, he is correct when he states that
"FERA workers now receive a minimum of 50
cents an hour." But this statement loses its entire
significance when one considers the further fact
that those on FERA are permitted an average of 15
to 25 hours work per week, according to the num-
ber of dependents for each worker. Thus a family
of six with which I am personally acquainted re-
ceives only $15 a week. This is supposed to pay for
food, light, rent, and clothes. Similarly, another
family of three persons receives $9 a week. Is this
what Mr. Disgusted calls "good pay"?
A larger question also arises as regards "people
on charity." Mr. Disgusted seems to hold the opin-
ion that charity is nothing more than a govern-
ment favor. I feel differently about the matter.
Those laborers and skilled workers who are now
working on useful FERA projects, have, in the past,
served society to the best of their' ability. Through
no fault of their own they have suddenly lost their
Undoubtedly it is the nature of our present so-
cial system which is responsible for the enforced
idleness of these workers. It is consequently the
duty (not the favor) of this social system to take
adequate care of those whose usefulness, it itself,
has crippled.
Once society fails to fulfill such an appointed
task, then, I feel that it has passed its stage of
usefulness. The time has then come for the workers
of society to construct a new social order; one
which will provide for their happiness and well-
be n--Joseph Feldman.
