icism and loss of faith in the press.
But no matter what the cause, the change is
desirable. It does not require that a newspaper
be eternally crusading, but it does call for a
recognition of the sore spots of the locality and
the taking of vigorous steps to correct them.
It requires a determination by the paper to make
the "home town" a really better place to live
in, in the real-not the "booster" and Chamber
Every newspaper in the United States should
follow the trend. Each and all should take
action. The great needs of the American news-
paper today are an intense desire to serve the
community and the nation constructively, and
a willingness to do so in the face of any opposi-
tion which may arise.

Chance To Help...
TODAY is the second and last
chance Ann Arbor will have to
contribute to the Tag Day drive of the Fresh Air
Carp. They need $2,500 to meet their budget.
Perhaps these two stories may show the utter
need for this camp out at Patterson Lake:
One day last week an 11-year-old kid with
straggly white hair climbed into an oak tree,
tied a rope firmly about a leafy limb, tied the
other about his thin neck, and gave himself
a push with his hands. A disheartened boy
was saved from hanging himself when a coun-
selar saw him jump and then clutch at the taut
Another kid had been too bothersome for the
counselor to handle. His sullen refusal to co-
operate with any part of the program caused
him to be sent home to Detroit. It was Sunday
night that a counselor found his bed already
inhabited. It was Johnny; his mother had
sent him back to the camp. The 12-year-old
boy, asleep in an old sweater, didn't care much
where he stayed. The camp wasn't exactly his
idea of fun, and his mother was a follower of
the world's oldest profession. She didn't want
him around when she brought men home and
he was a brat anyhow.
These are extreme cases, but are by no means
the only extreme cases. These boys need help.
With their third week of camp beginning,
these two fellows are reported to have become two
of the camp's most willing members, both in work
and in play.
Boys aren't naturally bad, and they deserve
an insight into good living. Without it at the
impressionable ages of 9 to 14 years, they de-
velop suddenly and certainly into hardened pros-
pects for our penitentiaries.
Penitentiaries and criminals cost a lot of
money. The institution at Jackson, where the
seventh Session excursion will go next ,Wednes-
day, was built at a cost of $8,000,000.
Youngsters will again solicit your aid at
many points on the campus today. There are
160 other fellows waiting for their four weeks
at Patterson Lake, and it's they your contribution
will help. They are coming out next month
from Detroit, Wyandotte, and Hamtramck for
a month's swimming, hiking, baseball games, na-
ture study, and a good time.
But when they return home they will have
got smething vastly more important.' They will
have learned to do their share of the work; to
play fair in games; they will have developed an
interest in things they have never known before,
and having been shown what fun it is, they
will be impressed.
Community Service .. .
A MERICAN NEWSPAPERS are in-
creasingly coming to recognize
that they are more than mere news-distributing
agencies. While the virulent personal journalism
of past decades has practically disappeared, a
large number of papers are trying to take a
more active part in local affairs and thus to be-
come stronger forces in their communities.
It is time that such a change took place. For
too many years there have been reasons for
asking why the newspapers existed. In order
of importance the raison d'etre of the average
paper seemed to consist of: (a.) profit-making;
(bi) increasing personal prestige; (c.) distribut-
ing and gathering news; and (d.) community
The decline of most newspapers can probably
be attributed primarily to the business office and

On The Court Bill
To the Editor:
In a recent editorial you suggest that the
filibuster is an undemocratic weapon for Roose-
velt's opposition to use against his proposal to
subvert the Supreme bench, that it is a denial
of the free exercise of the people's choice as it
should be expressed through their representa-
tives, that the people showed tacit agreement
with the President's designs in the overwhelming
majority they gave him lastNovember.
Is it possible that you believe this yourself?
Are you so politically naive as to think, even for
a moment, that Roosevelt's puppet show on-
Capitol Hill expresses the will of the people?
Would you care to defend before God and your
conscience the thesis that the people in voting
for a politician in November underwrote there-
by a scheme which lie didn't divulge until the
year following-and had expressly denied enter-
taining? Would you care to debate the legitimacy
of a filibuster in the Court issue with a keen
and unbiased analyst like Walter Lippmann, who
says that a filibuster against the Roosevelt plan
is not only justified, but demanded as a patriotic
The late Joseph Robinson was an able man.
You call him great. A truly great man would
have followed his conscience, no matter how the
whip cracked about his ears. It is regrettable
that others equally as able as Robinson are daily
selling themselves down river to a relentless and
self-centered taskmaster. It is even more re-
grettable that the most brazen effronteries of
the President and his Lewises and Farleys are
suffered quietly by the American people and
cheered by the diapered radicals enrolled in the

Peace Before Socialism
(From the N. Y. Herald Tribune)
DR. JESSE H. NEWLON, director of the Lin-
coln School of Teachers College, has told a
conference of school teachers that the greatest
hope of avoiding Fascism in this country lies in
a strong labor union movement. One can agree
with him, provided his definition of a strong
labor union movement means a thoroughly dis-
ciplined and responsible one. If, on the contrary,
he has in mind the CIO surge, then his argu-
ment is obviously ridiculous.
The CIO to date, as witness the vigilante
spirit it has aroused, has done more to promote
Fascism in this country than has any other
factor. Its control by an autocracy unaccount-
able to its membership, its violent, lawless meth-
ods and disregard of contractual obligations have
created a condition of anarchy dangerously sim-
ilar to that which in Italy provoked the march
of the Black Shirts on Rome.
To avoid Fascism, then, the most pressing
thingeat the moment is public control and reform
of the labor union movement as represented by
the policies and tactics of Mr. Lewis's organiza-
tion. This entails as the first step complete
revision of the Wagner act to bind labor equally
with the employer to the course of conduct which
today it prescribes only for the latter. It en-
tails such a supervision of union affairs that
neither the dictator nor the racketeer may take
charge, and such restrictions of the right to
strike that the right to work shall not be in-
fringed. Only a labor union movement subject
to restraints of the kind can remain safe for
IAs Others See It
To Avoid Fascism
To the Editor:
Inasmuch as I shall have left the University's
employ when you receive this letter, I should be
more than happy if you should publish my reason
for voting the Communist ticket last November.
You will recall that former Regent Murfin was
considerably exercised at hearing that something
like 10 Communist straw votes were cast on
this campus. Shortly before the election, in
order to avoid misunderstanding when asked
how I expected to vote, I prepared the follow-
ing statement, which I showed to all questioners:
"I expect to vote the Communist ticket in
November because I believe, as President Wilson
believed, and as Assistant Secretary of the Navy
Franklin D. Roosevelt said, in 1920, that United
States membership in the League of Nations is
'the single paramount issue.' The Communist
platform, in its Section VIII, is the only platform
T SEEMS that when Dr. Victor Heiser was in
the Philippines he had a Dr. Turnipseed as-
sisting him as a quarantine officer. One morning
Dr. Turnipseed boarded a big ship from the Pa-
cific Coast, went to the bridge and knocked tim-
idly on the captain's door.
"Come in," commanded a gruff voice.
Turnipseed edged through the door and said
apologetically, "I am Dr. Turnipseed."
The reply was, "Well you haven't anything on
me I'm Captain Garlic."

Education may be a rather botched job at
times, and at present some may even think that
it is doing more harm than good in the long run.
But we find that when regulations can't be en-
forced, when problems of intercourse become too
complex to be controlled by an administrative
body, that the way that the necessary rules
and regulations and habits are formulated and
held to among those needing such is by and
through the process of education. You will never
be able to force a nation not to drink, but you
may be able to teach them to drink moderately
or not at all. You may not be able to force them
to regard certain sanitary and preventative
measures, but you may be able to teach them
these. You may not be able to force through a
labor movement in one year, but you may be
able to educate labor to the responsibilities
and benefits to be gained from such.
Education is an evolutionary process, not rev-
olutionary, and necessarily so. As that is the
way that seems to wreck less havoc, and seems
to be the road to real and substantial progress.
The tragedy of man is that he has develope
an intelligence eager to uncover mysteries, but
not strong enough to penetrate them.
Having trouble with a key the other day we
started to wonder about the thousands of keys
that had to be taken care of on the campus year
in and out. So after a few inquiries we located
a Mr. Bruch of the B. and G. department over
in the storehouse back of the Health Service.
We found him to be a blue-grey eyed individual,
sandy haired, of a fairly sturdy build, and
of average height, probably between 30 and
35 years of age, not married.
Upon asking Bruch how he got into the bus-
iness of keys and locks he informed us that
his father was a contractor. Bruch therefore
being naturally interested in building hardware
along with the general contracting work drifted
into the hardware business with a now extinct
Ann Arbor hardware. This concern started to
take care of the University keys and continued
to do so for about eight or nine years, at which
time the University decided to take care of their
own keys. And what could be more natural
than to ask the man who had done this service
for them to continue it? (Probably lots of things).
But anyway Bruch thereupon became a B. and
G. man and remains so to this day.
It seems that about 99 per cent of Bruch's
work is with the cylinder type key. He modestly
denied that he knew any more about bit locks
than you or I. Now this cylinder type of lock
is the ordinary flat type key lock with which
we are all familiar. It seems that a little clylin-
der fits into each lock and turns with the key
when it is turned, if the key lifts all of the little
plungers in the cylinder to the proper level.
Most of the locks, cylinder type, are of the five
plunger variety, which plungers may be varied
five times, (Bruch claims to vary them 10 times
is too close to allow for real wear) thereby giving
a possible 3,125 variations for each "key way" or
groove variation on the key itself. And these key
ways may be varied by several dozen patterns.
Therefore you multiply 3,125 by several dozen you
receive the number of possible locks and keys.
(Don't forget there are also six plunger types of
Furtherinformation; all keys are worked from
an original grand master, most keys today are
made by the American Hardware Association.
All University keys have a seal on them and are
not supposed to be duplicated by other lock-
smiths, there is a very small loss of keys on
the campus. One should use a dry lubricant on
ordinary locks, loading and unloading the locks
takes real skill, it being easier however to take
the binges off the door or saw off the bolt, than
it is to pick a lock.
As a hobby man we find Bruch very active,
even though he really is genuinely interested in
the key business. He is now managing two soft
ball teams in Ann Arbor Leagues, one of which
is at the top of its league. They are both Elk
teams, Bruch being an ardent member. It seems
that he has played and umpired soft ball for
sometime and now manages these teams. We
were unable to ascertain which he lived to do
best. Altobether then Bruch keeps pretty busy.
He believes that hard work would solve a great
many of the present day problems and asked
us to write this down as much as possible.
