The Fight
For Civil Liberties*. .
reported a decrease in the repres-
sion of civil liberties for the year 1936-'37. Such
a report is not only encouraging, but also indi-
cates -strongly that the growing liberal element
in this country is using the right tactics to battle
the reactionary element.
This past year has seen the revelation of,
among other things, a Nazi party In the United
States, a Black Legion in Michigan and other
Middle Western states, and extant Ku Klux Klan
in Florida, and a Harlan County, Ky., espion-
age and strong-arm system that is unequalled.
The Chicago police have been exhibited as in-
struments not for the people and their rights
but for vested interests. Innumerable other
flagrant violations of civil rights have been un-
covered in this past year.
And what are the tactics used by the liberal
elements? They consist almost entirely of a con-
tinuous and irresistible pressure. Organizations
whose interests coincide with those of the Amer-
ican peopile have worked tirelessly in gaining
great numbers and consequently great power.
This power has been turned on governmental
bodies which have investigatory powers, on slug-
gish guardians of the Republic, on muddle-mind-
ed police who imagine themselves in the employ
of business rather than the people.
Out of this pressure in recent years came the
Senate investigations of munitions, of Harlan
County and of the Chicago police. Their find-
ings were so newsworthy that every metropolitan
newspaper with a shred of conscience had to
give them wide publicity.
Thus, through the press, America has been
made aware of the dangers to her rights, and
has become more sympathetic with what or-
ganizations such as the Civil Liberties Union
is attempting to do. This publicity has also given
many new members to liberal organizations.
We, as students and educators, should under-
stand clearly why there has been a decrease in
the repression of civil rights during the past
year, for right here in Michigan (which is listed
as one of the greatest danger spots in the re-
port) there is much that we can do to help con-
tinue the decrease.
And we should understand that it is an un-
ending fight, especially in this day when a ram-
bunctious labor is trying American industrial
magnates, many of whom will stop at no limit.
We can well heed the Civil Liberties Union's
warning: "Any such improved tendency must be
regarded as only relative, for the forces of re-
pression remain constant in a society marked by
inherent conflict in politics, industry, race and

Mr. Canter's Welcome
To the Editor:
May I have a small space in which to greet
the Summer Session students?
Students of the Summer Session, I greet you
and bid you welcome to our fair city where we
have more unnecessary weathertin a given period
than any other place between the poles and the
tropics. I want to warn you, however, against
prejudice regarding this lovely seat of learning.
If you should happen to notice that the cost
of living is greater than anywhere. else, except in
the national capital, just console yourself with
the assurance that it is worth it. If you need
more money with which to meet these increased
costs, just tell a police officer and perhaps he
can direct you to a preferred gambling place
where you may try your luck at getting much
for littel. But please don't make the mistake
of asking him if he ever plays the games whilc
on duty-we dislike having our guardians of the
law embarrassed.
I would warn you especially against believing
startling tales which may be told to you. Take
all of these rumors with 10 grains of asperin.
For instance someone might tell you that a
certain Police Commissioner is often incapaci-
tated by intoxication. Now even if this were true
we would never know it.
In this city the presence and degree of intoxi-
cation are determined solely by the police officers
and justice court and we certainly have no re-
port from them that the gentleman has been
under the influence.
Again, there is the ugly rumor that the two
officers, suspended for using commendable force
against a notorious local bad man, have never
taken their time off. Why should we worry, pos-
sibly those few days are being saved for sick
leave. Please do not credit these stories but be-
lieve that our law enforcement body is composd
of fearless, self-sacrificing men, whose places
would be hard to fill. If you doubt that last,
just ask to see the names of applicants on the
waiting list.
Here on the campus, I would warn you against
the sob stories of that ungrateful and dissatisfied
group-the custodians. If one of them should
tell you that he is receiving only 40 cents per
hour for his work doubt that too. I, personally,
know of several who are receiving 41 cents.
In conclusion allow me to repeat the warning
to doubt all of these stories until after you have
made investigations, and before you make too
many inquiries, I should advise that you take
some more aspirin.
-Will Canter.
Mr. Average American's Ideas
To the Editor:
That was a big headline and much space you
gave to the report that 135 out of a certain 150
persons thought Roosevelt and the CIO had gone
"too far." I realize that this group of persons ex-
tended over several states but I think that the
statistics are nevertheless highly vulnerable.
An answer depends largely on how the ques-
tion is asked. If asked in reference to particular
alleged facts, even I would say the CIO had gone
"too far," though I am probably one of the best
friends of the CIO in that hotbed of radicals in
Mr. Frankfurter's backyard known as the Har-
vard Law Review. But that would be different
from my saying that on the whole, throughout
the whole range of its activity, the CIO has
gone "too far" in reference to the particular sit-
uation raised by the Bonus Army.
That the questions referred to in your article
were "leading questions" is clearly indicated by
the inclusion of questions on the "third term
movement" with those about the Supreme Court.
By and large, only people with a bias in favor of
the view that Roosevelt is trying to be a dicta-
tor believe there is a third term movement. The
movement exists only in the columns of Re-
publican papers anxious to use it as an indi-
cation that Roosevelt's motive in the court re-
form as well as other things is dominated by

a personal lust for power. This "movement" is
of the same stamp as the "Girdler for President"
movement attributed to certain Republican fac-
tions by certain radical papers (that haven't the
circulation which the conservative press now en-
But even if the allegations of your feature
story did represent what "Mr. Average American"
would say in response to an impartial question-
ing, I am surprised at the wonder on the part
of said average American that it takes dues to
run a union. That union executives have to be
paid also seems to bother him. Doesn't the
average American wonder where the tribute
levied by industrial non-owner management and
by "milking scheme" holding companies goes to,
or didn't it occur to your reporter to ask the
question? Mr. Girdler's salary levies 10 times the
tribute on production that Mr. Lewis's does. Per-
haps that is as it should be, but that doesn't prove
Mr. Lewis shouldn't get his salary. It is idle to
say the former is a producer and the latter is
not, for both are salaried executives and repre-
sentiinterests and eachhave a place in the pro-
ductive process of today or they wouldn't get
paid at all.
I do not see either how the fear of a new de-
pression is linked to the labor movement for
I thought that depressions were largely caused
by the failure to distribute purchasing power to
the producing masses. At least the CIO has not
made the situation worse in this respect, though
I doubt whether they have improved it.
As for upsetting "normalcy" by labor move-
ments, strikes and government regulation: the
cry of business was first "Recovery before Re-

On The Level
NEW ENGLANDERS are always exceedingly
precise. They pride themselves on their use
of perfect English. We first noticed this fact
while driving through Massachusetts and view-
ing the road signs. Instead o the usual mid-
Western "GO SLOW" warnings, the Massa-
chusetts signals are grammatically correct, and
say "GO SLOWLY." However, we felt that this
use of Harvardian phraseology was carried just
a bit top far, when we sat down to eat in a Cam-
bridge, Mass., restaurant and gazed at the menu.
The diner had his choise of three kinds of
bread-white, rye,\ and "entire wheat." This
latter type of staff of life was new to us, so we
ordered it. But their "entire wheat bread" didn't
fool us any. It turned out to be what we thought
it would-the type of bread that is known as
"whole wheat" in every city in the United States,
with the possible exception of Cambridge, Mass.

THIS TALE COMES to us from the none-too-
recent Michigan Centennial Celebration, but
we still get a laugh from it. An ancient grad was
hailed at the doings by a fellow grad of the class
of '03 or '04. Although his face was very fa-
miliar, the first old grad couldn't recall the name
of the classmate he was talking to. Ashamed to
admit the fact that his buddy's name had slipped
his mind, the fellow talked on for a while and
then nonchalantly asked his friend whether he
spelled his name with an "i" or an "e," hoping
that the unknown would bite and spell his name
But the first alum was soon sorry he didn't
come right out and admit he didn't know the
name, when his classmate replied, "Hmmrph! I
spell my name with an 'i"-the name is Hill."

is becoming pathetically overcrowded nowa-
days, and the old crowd who used to sneak out
to the raft in the past, when everyone thought.
it was a private club, is as disgusted as a vege-
tarian in the Chicago
stockyards. The club is
still a private one, but
since no one has ever done
anything about visitors,

- - -Proof of this over-pop-
ulation of swimmers came
Sunday when the raft capsized under the com-
bined weight of some twenty students and about
thirty Ann Arbor restaurant owners. The raft
had to be hauled into shore and' put together
again. This considerably griped the campus
swimmers, who feel that they really discovered
the spot and shouldn't be crowded out by divers
divers of the greasyspoon type.
In view of this fact, the ever-up-on-their-toes
students are considering circulating a rumor
about town to the effect that there are typhoid
germs in the water. Some have even started
the rumor (and it is a rumor that there is ath-
lete's foot fungae on the raft itself. These ru-
mors, they hope, will keep most of the crowd
away and allow them to swim in solitary state.



Does a Summer Session student on
the :Campus become a Michigan

Not yet, but quite probably a future radio
headliner is our own Charley Zwick who directs
the music for you Summer Session dancers each
week-end in the League and Union ballrooms.
Charley began-building his band one year ago
this summer, and last fall he presented Mich-
igan with its number one dance orchestra. A
good rhythm section sprinkled with some of
that Zwickian (sometimes it's good, sometimes
it's bad) piano work, a fairly proficient brass
section and a very excellent reed section are the
outstanding features of the organization. You're
missing a good thing if you don't go up and listen
to these boys one of these nights.
Some of the better programs on the air bring
about the most unusual comments from their
admirers. For instance, the other day we were
'alking to a Summer Session student who said
"I just don't know, but every time I hear Benny
Goodman on the Camel Summer Swing School
program, I just can't help it, my legs start
truckin,' and I can't stop. Sometimes in classes
I just think about the Camel program, and
there I am-truckin' in my seat."
Wednesday night at 8 p.m. you'll hear Frank
Parker making his bow on the Chesterfield pro-
gram. His debut on this show will be marked by
an offering of Irving Berlin's "A Pretty Girl
Is Like a Melody." The interesting orchestra-
tions of the music of Andre Kostelanetz will fea-
ture a version of "Powerhouse." You can find
this program over WJR and other stations of
the Columbia chain.
Since Bing Crosby is away on a vacation, Bob
Burns is leading the Kraft Music Hall. This
Thursday night you will find the Kraft Show
over WWJ and other stations of the NBC at 9
p.m. The first citizen of Van Beuren, Arkansas
will present as his guests the Misses Olivia de
Havilland and Dorothy McNulty, 'Jose Iturbi,
Fortunio Bonanova, and while Jimmy Dorsey and
his orchestra are absent, the music will be that
of Johnny Trotter.

A large and appreciative audience greeted the
second of this summer's series of faculty concerts
at Hill Auditorium last night. Hanns Pick, cellist,
opened the program with a group of modern
French composers-Debussy, Ravel and Saint-
Saens. The Debussy sonata-in two movements
-for cello and piano-was of outstanding inter-
est in this group, both in musical content and
performance. The Piece en forme de Habanera
by Ravel, was an interesting bit in the Spanish
mood. Mr. Pick had the able cooperation of Mr.
Brinkman at the piano. Following the Allegro
