A Third Term
For Roosevelt?. .
FOR SOME MONTHS rumors con-
cerning the possibility of a third
term for President Roosevelt have grown more
frequent. During the campaign last fall many.
opposition orators hinted at the third term
threat, but no serious consideration was given to
the matter until after the inauguration, when
mention of another administration for the Pres-
ident began to be passed around in the circles
of his supporters. Recently Gov. Earle of Penn-
sylvania, a good liberal and a staunch Democrat,
who might easily be considered for the party
nomination himself in 1940, came out openly
for another administration for Roosevelt. Since
that time a number of comments, nearly all ad-
verse, have been heard on the subject.
Most criticism centers around the danger to
democracy inherent in twelve years of leadership
by the same individual, and of the possibility of
,the precedent established being turned to use
by some future leader less attached to democratic
principles than Roosevelt is believed to be. It
might be pointed out that our government is
one of laws rather than of men, and there is
no provision in the Constitution against more
than two administrations by any one President
It might further be pointed out that under the
American system the people are given an oppor-
tunity to register their approval or disapproval
of a candidate in an orderly and legal manner,
first in the primaries, and second in the general
The weakness of these arguments, however, is
quite apparent; neither the one assertion nor
the other is strictly true. America is a republic
of laws only in theory; in reality it is very largely
one of men. The primaries are likewise only a
theory; actually the people are only given an op-
portunity to endorse the candidate already se-
lected by the party machine, and afterward only
the choice of two names, usually with little re-
liable information on which to base their judg-
In 1940 it is perfectly possible that the people
will be forced to reelect Roosevelt even if they
do not desire him to have a third term simply
because the Republican nominee is a man of the
Alf M. Landon type. Or another situation might
prevail: the country might be faced with a de-
cisive split on the labor issue, with perhaps a
labor party placing a candidate in the field, in
which case the Democrats could sweep back into
office with a "hold onto Roosevelt" slogan to
catch the ear of the middle-aisle majority.
The question of the ethics of a third presi-
dential term is rather a metaphysical one. What
must be decided is whether the country will
require the services of President Roosevelt for
an additional four years after 1940. It is doubt-
ful that the next president, whoever he may be,
will possess qualifications for the office in so
abundant a quantity as the present incumbent,
but whether this fact is sufficient to outweigh
the arguments against another Roosevelt man-
date or not is indeed a delicate question. If,
in place of Roosevelt, the country could be given
a progressive liberal of the Barkley or Wagner
type, even though he might lack the Roosevelt
finesse he would probably be a wise choice. If,
however, the elements of reaction are sufficiently
strong in 1940 to menace the Roosevelt system,
to which a majority of voters is strongly at-
tached the President might reasonably be drafted
for the protection of democracy. At present such
a contingency appears unlikely.
A most important consideration from the Pres-
ident's own point of view must be the terrific
strain of the greatest public office in the world.
Twelve years it could easily prove fatal even
to a man of the robust health enjoyed by the
now considered the first place to begin a cam-
paign to eradicate crime and criminal tendencies,
according to Margaret E. Fries, New York City
mental hygienist in speaking to the American
Psychiatric association recently.
For a long time the sentimentality of Mothers'
Day and other more superficial connotations for
the role of the Mother overshadowed her so-
ciological importance in modern society. She is
now considered as a scientific arbiter of future
destinies. It is up to the mothers to safeguard
future now unborn children from criminal ten-
dencies. For, according to the above authority,
personality begins before birth and events really
responsible for children becoming wayward, often
occur before birth.
Recently it was pointed out 34.4 per cent of
401,489 arrests in 1936 were concerned with
youths under 25 years of age, the mother's re-
sponsibility is even greater in this connection. It
is up to her to safeguard the child by preventing
any criminal tendencies. Since more than one-
third of crime in America in 1936 was committed
by youth, the Mother apparently has had great
obstacles in fulfilling her role in modern society
satisfactorily. It can not necessarily be said
that she has failed, for ignorance of her soci-
ological importance has made it difficult for her
role' as a mother to exert its greatest influence
An example of personality stunting occurred
in the case of a mother who wanted a girl. The
baby was a boy. A slight accident of birth turned
the mother against it without her realization.
The child as it grew became hostile to its parents
without their understanding that the cause of
his attitude toward them was their own conduct.
Physicians cured the case by explainihg the sit-
uation to the mother. But, said Dr. Fries, the ex-
planation is usually delayed until the child is
arrested for delinquence and then it is too late.
All babies, she said, by the time they are ten
days old, exhibit one of three major behavior
patterns. They are either over-active, moder-
ately active or underactive. In some families,
she held, it is important to recognize this 10-
day old classification and to advise the mothers
how to treat their babies.
"These patterns of the first 10 days," she
added, "we found to be still present by the end
of the first year.-
Even at one year, she asserted, it is some-
times difficult and expensive to adjust the fam-
ily to these "patterns" in bringing up the baby.
Thus expense as well as ignorance on the part
of the mother might be another deterrent in the
satisfactory fulfillment of the sociological role
of the mother in preventing crime. However, it
is safe to conclude that with more study of this
relation between the mother role and crime pre-
vention, some adequate solution of America's
youthful crime problem may be reached. At least
there has been found a new field of endeavor in
which to approach the problem of criminal ten-

To the Editor:
Looking through an old University catalogue
I see the fees itemized as to tuition, union fee,
Health Service fee, but in the new catalogues
the tuition is listed as a lump sum.
A very well-known professor on this campus
accosted a Mr. Smith who seems to be influ-
ential 'in the treasurer's office and asked him
about the change. Said he "There are no union
dues-the sum paid by a student is tuition."
Countered the professor, "That is sheer camou-
flage.. A student in actuality pays a' certain
amount to the union for operating expenses."
"Oh, no," said Mr. Smith. "What the student
pays is merely tuition" or words to that effect.
That shows what arbitrary definition will do.
The writer met the same attitude on the part
of a Mr. Leidy in the Law School. Since nu-
merous law students are interested in the
gentleman's game, billiards, the writer wanted
permission to place a petition for opening the
billiard room this summer on the Law bulletin
board. "No," said Mr. Leidy, "And further, this
is the wrong way to go about it." He seemed very
agitated and angry.
I told him that I thought the Union's not keep-
ing the recreation rooms open for summer school
students was receiving money under false pre-
tenses. "How," said Leidy. Said I, "Since a cer-
tain portion of the male student's fee is allo-
cated to the Union-" "But," said he, "No portion
of the student fee is allocated to the Union. Be-
sides, you could say that if one classroom which
was not being used was closed, any student could
say that the University were accepting money
under false pretenses."
That, dear readers, is legal analogy. If the rest
of the Law Faculty reasoned like that, what a
crop of lawyers Michigan would turn out. But
they are not. That is why Michigan is ace high
in Law. Afterward I calculated such an analogy
to be 0.1 per cent true if there are a thousand
classrooms on the campus. There is but -one
billiard room. And the nearest public billiard
room is a greasy one on Main Street.
One can see that such reasoning concerning
the lump tuition is hypocritical. It may be a
way to facilitate registration not to give a stu-
dent any choice. Freshmen would not know if
they wished to be members of the Union. A
sophomore, if he were a liberal, would know and
would not join. I shall never pay another Union
fee. I do not like the food in the taproom,
team"? Will Michigan forsake the "punt, pass,
pray," and line-buck game that has put the
crowds to sleep for the past three years? The
coming season is fraught with potentialities, and
these questions can only be answered when the
last timer's gun has been fired.
Sticking our now swollen neck out again, the
most favorable prediction of the coming year
that we can make, would give Michigan four wins
and four losses over the season. To make this
record, Michigan would have to defeat Michigan,
State, Iowa, Illinois, and Chicago, while losing
to Northwestern, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and
Ohio State. That is the way we think it will be
done. But we have to win the "warm-up" with

Speaking of football, the All-Star dream-team
will play the Green Bay Packers, at Soldier's
Field, Chicago on the first day of September.
If the game isn't cursed with its usual deluge of
rain, we think that this game will set a new high-
scoring record for the affair. The scores have
always hovered around the one-touchdown mark,
but this year Dorais and the passing combina-
tions of both teams ought to see the pros winning
by something like 20-13.
But, as usual, there will probably be a healthy
handing down of aqua from Old Man Pluvius to
make the ball unpassable. We recall the second
game of this "dream" series, which was played
against the Chicago Bears in 1934. It rained
felines and canines all day, and the crowd was
getting soaked through, despite the large sale of
wax-paper raincoats that was going on. An ex-
ceedingly inebriated gentleman, motioned to one
of the young ladies who were selling these flimsy
raincoats. She hastened up the aisle to him.
"How many?" she asked the drunk, as she
started passing raincoats down the line to him.
"How many?" repeated the souse. "Do I look
like the Dionne quintuplets?"

THE PACIFISTS in this coutry have taken
quite a beating of late with all the brawls
that are going on abroad. In view of all the
foreign free-for-alls, the Pacifist group decided
that something had to be done, so radio stations
all over the country have been receiving a flood of
requests to play, "I Didn't Raise My Boy To Be a
the present management barring fires, floods,
That brings me to my next point, the one-sided
political philosophy of the management. The
manager need not take it to heart because
everyone who has thought about it suspects that
he is more or less a passive loud speaker for the
conservative Union board.
A couple of weeks ago a member of the Pro-
gressive club which was given official recognition
last spring engaged a meeting place in the Union.
When the group assembled on the appointed
night no room had been reserved. Mr. Waltz
was questioned. He gave a song and dance
about the desk man not having authority to
pass on such matters and that controversial sub-
jects could not be discussed there. A university
professor who has long been a member of the
Union spoke up. "A number of meetings have
been held here in recent months at which con-
troversial subjects were discussed and speeches
were made, to the contents of which I would
strongly object, not that I would object to their
meeting in the Union. You (Mr. Waltz) are
not avoiding the controversial issues. You are
merely taking sides."
I questioned the desk man who took the res-
ervation. He said that non-University groups
could not meet in the Union. He forgets that
insurance, rotary, all sorts of commercial gath-
erings find a welcome haven there. I informed
him that a University professor scrutinized the
group which met in the Unitarian Church after
being denied the room reserved in the Union.
He recognized only two men and three women
who were not connected with the University in
an audience of eighty to a hundred.
