Importance and interest to the camDus
Forgive The Court
To the Editor:
Although I was in sympathy with your editorial
on the demise of the court reform plan, I did
think your sentence to the effect that the courts
should follow the majority was ill chosen and
probably expressed more than you meant. At
any rate I think my friend Mr. Hamburger was
too sharp in his criticism of your editorial
and too naive in his praise of the court. Of course
the court should protect minorities but it should
not go so far out of the way as it has done
to invent rights of individuals and groups of in-
dividuals to be judicall'y made inipervious to the
action of legislatures.
Some of these invented 'rights are: (a) the
right to change exorbitant employment agency
fees (established in a case involving a New
Jersey law a few years ago); (b) the right to get
out of punishment for an attempt to defraud
the public provided one gets cold feet soon
enough and leaves it half done. (Jones vs. Se-
curities and Exchange commission, 1936); (c)
the right not to have Congress regulate child
labor (Hammer vs. Dagenhart, 1917); (d) the
right to have findings of competent adminis-
trative boards disregarded by courts on gen-
eral principles (Crowell vs. Benson, 1932); see
also St. Joseph Stockyards Co. vs. U.S., 1936,
and ('Fact Determination by Judicial Guesswork"
in 40 Yale Law Journal 81, 1931,); (e) the right
to have an everyday judge rather than a trained
administrative board prescribe the way of mak-
ing public utility rates (Ohio Valley Water Co.
vs. Ben Avon Brough, 1920).
Other such rights are (f) the right to settle
wages by industrial warfare rather than by a
Court proceeding (Wolff Packing Co. vs. Court of
Industrial Relations, 1923 and 1925); (g) the
right not to have the state control theatre ticket
speculation (Tyson vs. Barton, 1927); (h) the
right to make mattresses out of second hand ma-
terial in spite of legislative prohibition (Weaver
vs. Palmer Bros. Co. 1925); (i) the right to evade
a tax law by gifts of a few days before the law
is passed (Untermyer vs. Anderson, 1927), (j)
the right of federal judges not to pay 'income
tax (Evans vs. Gore, 1919); and (k) the right to
keep secret a piece of incriminating evidence
though it was carelessly left lying around
(Gouled vs. U.S., 1921).
Next fall they will probably be asked to
create a right to construct complicated financial
control schemes of the Insull-Van Sweringen
type, beyond legislative restraints-a sort of
right to control other people's money. The court
will also be asked to invent a right not to have
the government lend money to cities for power
plants.
It is all right for the court' to protect those
poor harrassed public utility people who are so
persecuted that they can no longer enjoy their
winters in Florida, that the court should restrain
its zeal to do so when it requires the creation
of this more bizarre kind of minority rights. I
feel that if a twelve year term were fixed for
Supreme Court judges their imagination in this
direction would not be given time to develop
so far. To Mr. Hamburger's "God bless the
court" should be added "And forgive them also,
for they know not what they do."
-William Redin Woodward.

"PARNELL"
Although Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has altered

the stage play to unrecognizable degree, taken
out much of the bitterness of the Irish Party
internal strife, and dripped the story with
honey, "Parnell," is worth sitting through. Its
worth as a historical document is slightly -above
nothing, but it will be found good drama at the
expense of all else.
Its theme is a sober one, broken by sporadic
displays of temper essential to the Irish. The
beginning is sappy-showing the great Irish idol
making his departure from a visit to the United
States in 1880 amid maudlin speeches. The start
betrays a well-presented story.
Clark Gable should have made a worthy Par-
nell, and in places rises to that expectation, but,
taken altogether he falls somewhat short of
maintaining the spirit of the rugg'ed individual
who molded Ireland into a unit and waged a
desperate fight for Home Rule. Myrna Loy, as
Katie O'Shea, wife of another member of Par-
liament, and who accepts Gable's romantic
declarations a bit too matter-of-factly for truth,
is an appropriate person to play the part of an
ornament to the richly-mounted scene.
Edmund Gwenn is an intense secretary to the
party leader. Berton Churchill ditches his
humorous characterizations to become a suave
politician. Fluttery Billie Burke, who is without
equal in her portrayal of flighty females, adds
to the small thread of humor woven into the
piece, while Edna May Oliver is unusually somber
as the aunt of the O'Shea girls.
The well-known story of a forged letter being
the start of the downfall of Charles Stewart
Parnell, who was given another shove by divorce
action against Mrs. O'Shea. naming him as en-

On The Level
By WRAG
AFTER watching the Jekyll-Hyde antics of the
schoolteachers who are enrolled at the Uni-
versity this summer, we were quite interested
in an item that appeared the other day under
the heading: "SCHOOLMARMS WHOOP IT UP
IN NEW YORK."
It seems that the school-mistresses are taking
certain courses at Columbia University under the
broadminded tutelage of a Miss Roma Gans.
Miss Gans is quoted as having said, "The old-
fogey teacher can't win the respect of her
children because nobody is so modern as the
modern child. Nor can she hope to understand
her children if she doesn't know what interests
them, and why." With this thought in mind,
she has been leading the schoolmarms a merry
chase. Ball games, night clubs, prize fights,
polo matches, yacht races, and dining in all for-
eign restaurants have been the major portion of
their curriculum.
In view of this we can't help but feel a bit
sorry for the teachers who are matriculating
here in Ann Arbor. The only modernizing de-
vices in this town are certain beer halls and
the bull-sessions that the gals might have in
their respective dorms.
* * * *
DOOR-TO-DOOR salesman often run into
funny situations. We heard this one from
one of the "working my way through college"
boys enrolled in Summer School, that happened
in residential Ann Arbor the other day. This
fellow rang the doorbell at one of the houses in
his district, and the little boy answered.
"Is your mother home?" asked this super sales-
man.
"Yeah," responded the kid, "She's upstairs.
She thinks she's going to take a bath, but she
ain't because I've got the stopper right here
in my pocket."

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE the craze for think-
ing up song dedications strikes the campus.
Last night we heard someone dedicate "The First
Time I Saw You" to the Forester lumbermen on
campus, so we tried to gather up some other
theme songs.
Perhaps we could render "I've Got You Under
Muyskens" for the huge Speech professor. And
then "Gone With the Windt" could be dedicated
to Professor Windt of the same department.
The song "An Apple A Day" could be the theme
song of the many professor polishers on campus.
"Ten O'Clock Town" would also be descriptive
of Ann Arbor during final examination time.
A news item quotes a 90-year old retired Army
officer as saying that he attributes his long life
to the fact that he has always worn suspenders.
We can only add-ninety years, eh? Keep it up.
As Others See It
Copeland And Rider
THE ANTI-LYNCHING BILL has passed the
House and seemingly has sufficient support
to pass the Senate, if its well-meaning friends
do not make further blunders and impede its
progress. Senator Copelarnd of New York, in his
zeal for the measure, -came near upsetting the
applecart last Monday. Apparently impatient
because the bill had not yet reached the floor,
he took the amazing step of suddenly offering
it as an amendment to a bill to limit the length
of freight trains to 70 cars. The lynching rider
was rejected, 41 to 34, but many Senators who
voted in the negative did so in opposition to
the unusual procedure of mixing two bills of
such unlike character, and not in opposition to
the bill itself.
There is no necessity for advocates of this
measure to resort to trick legislation in their
efforts to get it through. Fortunately, the vote

of Monday did not kill the bill, and observers
predict that it will have a majority when the
vote comes. Important as is this step toward,
ending mob murder, its merit still does not
justify moves to get around the democratic leg-
islative process in obtaining its passage.
ever credit goes with the statement: "a better
than average summer production."
Because the British Empire earns back the
production cost of a picture with the United
States furnishing the "gravy," the cinematic
super-specials never,, you may have noticed, deal
with American historical figures. The Green
Mountain Boys, Old Ironsides, Benjamin Frank-
lin and the rest aren't appreciated in Great Bri-
tain so in recent years they have not figured
importantly in big pictures-instead we have
seen "Clive of India," "Lives of a Bengal Lancer"
and a number of others. However, if pictures
of this type are as necessary as producers seem
to believe, "Wee Willie Winkie" is acceptable.
Aside from the title and Winkie's habit of nick-
naming everyone she (she was a he in the story,.
if you remember) meets, there is little resem-
blance to the Rudyard Kipling story. Clever
dialogue and four or five good reels make up for
this in some measure.
Shirley Temple gives her usual "cute" perform-
ance. Rapidly reaching the awkward age, a full
house indicated The Templet remains at the
top. Still and all, though, her sweetness and
light are almost as annoying as Gene Raymond.
We'd like to see her in a picture called "Wee
Willie Stinkie."
