FRIDAY. JULY 23. 1937

FRIDAY, JULY 23, 1937

taurant conditions rests with the City Council,
and until the desired legislation is initiated
by this body, enforced sanitary measures will be
something to talk about and that's all.
According to Franklin Fisk, a sanitation offi-
cer who will be in charge of future health and
sanitation developments, plans for establishing
a definite criterion for the maintenance of a
high standard of cleanliness and sanitation of
restaurant premises in Ann Arbor are well on
the way. He said, however, that until the City
Council passes an ordinance giving the Health
Department some authority, it will be some time
before anything of a substantial nature can be
hoped for.
Legislation by the City Council will only come
about when the powers that be are reminded
of the fact that the students of Ann Arbor
are an integral part of the city eleven months
out of the year, and that with such a status
they are entitled to whatever advantages the au-
thorities can give them. The Health Depart-
ment is ready to go into action, but they still
await the go sign from the City Council.
As Others See It
Meeting The Machine
(From St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
THE MACHINE has already posed many prob-
lems. It is still in its infancy. Invention
has removed 1937 a millenium or more from
1837. It is proceeding at an ever accelerating
pace. It spreads unemployment. It thrusts on
capital the continuous burden of scrapping
plants and erecting new ones which in turn
are in the shadow of obsolescence at the first
turn of the wheels.
A survey of the situation has been completed
for the National Resources Committee, made up
mostly of high administration officials, by its
subcommittee on technology. The subcommit-
tee's personnel is distinguished. Its report, just
published under the title, "Technological Trends
and National Policy, Including the Social Im-
plications of New Invention," is a profoundly
important work. It is a sequel, in a way, to the
"Report on Social Trends" prepared five years
ago at the instance of President Hoover. It dif-
fers from that document, however, in that it is
"the first major attempt to show the kinds of
new inventions which may affect living and
working conditions in America in the next 10 to
25 years."
Into'this bewildering field of prophecy the sur-
vey marches with confident stride. The Patent
Office, for example, is issuing warrants for novel
contrivances at the rate of 35,000 a year, yet the
survey dares to single 13 recent inventions from
that multitude "that may soon be widely used
with resultant social influences of significance."
The layman has heard of some of them. The
mechanical cotton-picker has been publicized,
with economic consequences so far-reaching as
to alarm the inventors. Of comparable import
are the artificial cotton and woolen-like fibers
from cellulose, pre-fabricated houses, television
and what is called "tray agriculture."
This last process resembles necromancy more
than science. Given a tin pan, some water and
an electric current, and the farmer in the dell
vanishes from the immemorial picture. A city
back yard under glass will sumptuously provide
the family table with fruits and vegetables and
supply the neighbors for blocks around. Here is
chemistry running far beyond the wildest dreams
of the ancient alchemists. The stories of "tray
agriculture" might be dismissed as fairy tales
were it not for the fact that experiments have,
in a measure, substantiated the claims.
A banker is credited with coining the necessary
phrase: "Invention is the thing that makes se-
curities insecure." But the first victim of applied
science is the toiler. And it is as true now
as when John Morley said it that "a working-
man unable to find a job is a more tragic figure
than Hamlet or Oedipus." What is to be done
for the man discharged by a new device? The
theory is pleasingly set forth by people unaf-
fected that invention creates additional employ-
ment, that unemployment is but a temporary se-
quence. But unemployment does not have to

last long in order to destroy an individual and
wreck a home. The spectacle has grieved almost
every man of conscience.
This "more tragic figure than Hamlet or Oe-
dipus" is a client of the authors of the survey
under discussion. How are we to meet the press-5
ing social challenge of science? The word "plan-
ning" is in some disfavor, but only by the most
intelligent planning can the problem be solved.
In the solution, industry manifestly must join
with government. The enterprise, for all its
drudgery, is a great humanitarian adventure,
illumined with the inspiration of a crusade.
Mr. Davis' Cup
(From St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
WHEN Dwight F. Davis put up the Davis Cup,
he inaugurated one of the most satisfactory
of all athletic events. Seldom has this annual in-
ternational event failed to produce more than
its quota of thrills.
Yesterday Don Budge, playing the decisive
match of the inter-zone finals against Baron
Gottfried von Cramm, lost the first two sets
and was losing 1-4 in the final set, and again
4-5, and still again 5-6, yet arose to inspired
heights and won set, match and tournament.
Budge, America's latest tennis genius, a worthy
successor of McLaughlin, Johnston, Tilden and
Vines, caught the German at the height of Von
Cramm's game, and staved off defeat only by
an exhibition of great competitive spirit.
These shores haven't seen the Davis Cup
since theFrench took it away in 1927. It now

On The Level
By WRAG
WE HAD READ of how maybe-immortal Eu-
gene Fields once went into a restaurant and
asked the waitress for "two eggs and a few kind
words," so we thought we would try that ap-
proach out on one of Ann Arbor's waitresses the
other day. We believe the waitress told Fields "not
to eat dem eggs" in the way of her kind words,
but after our waitress had served us our order,
we said, "Well, here are the eggs but where are
your few kind words?"
Our un-Fieldian waitress merely looked blase
and replied, "Oh, you collitch boys!"
FRANKLY we are rather puzzled at the amount
and content of poetic contributions that have
come to us at The Daily office since the advent of
"Trudy Steinburg." Of the several that came
in this morning, we shall print the following pair:
EVENING HYMN
Something circumscribed about syncopation
brings tremolo by lilting,
brings passion by swift titillation,
metamorphosis into blood-tilting ...
clings gustily, moves moodily,
glares red, gleams white,
jerking,. twitching, gliding lazily ...
transfixes with darting gemuchlichkeit . .
Let Stokowski weave harmonies of transfiguring
complexity:
I prefer hot spots where sleek dames display
sexity. JWOOP
* * * *
And another:
ESTHETE'S LAMENT
The toenails that so coyly peep
From the sandals of the girls asleep,
Display varieties of hues
That Actor Fields for nose could use.
Those fingernails like old stained glass
Are worse than nauseating gas,
And from most men a dismal burp'll
Come forth at sight of toe-nails purple.
But on this point no more I'll blurt,
I guess it's done to hide the dirt!
JABBER WOK.
THE NOTICE that appeared in The Daily yes-
terday asking for hostesses to handle the
stags at the League and Union
dances on Friday and Satur-
day night, turned out to be a
swell opportunity for practical
joking phone callers. Jean
Geyer, in charge of Friday
night dances, received a call
from a female impersonator
who talked in a falsetto voice
and asked her what the duties
of such a hostess were. Jean
bit and told the fellow just
what her hostesses had to do. Then the fellow
wondered just what a hostess was supposed to
do after the dance was over. Jean told the sup-
posed girl ("Ann Lynn") that it was up to her.
Then the high-voiced fellow asked, "Are the
hostesses obligated to do anything besides what
you told us?" "Oh, no!" replied Jean very ser-
iously.
"Ann Lynn" is expected to come to The League
at nine tonight, but he won't be there.
I RADIO
By THOMAS McCANN
One of the best trios on the air today is that
of Tom, Dick and Harry. This popular threesome
has been on the ether for some time now, and
has recently taken a coast to coast hook up for
Fels Naphtha. If you want to hear some of the
best harmony ever yodeled, try WGN Thursday
night at 7.

Those very popular Robin Hood Dell Concerts,
presenting a ninety piece symphony orchestra

under the direction of Vladmir Goldschmann, are
on Thursday nights at 7:30, and you'll find them
over CRCW and WXYZ.
We must congratulate the University on its
programs over WJR on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wed-
nesdays and Thursdays at 3 p.m. The script and
acting of these programs is handled by our own
Summer Session students, and for ingenues, they
are presented admirably.

Orson Welles, Who played opposite Katharine
Cornell in "Romeo and Juliet" and directed the
all-negro "Macbeth," will present Friday night at,
9, Hugo's immortal "Les Miserables" over CKLW
and other stations of the MBS. This will be
a test case to determine the plausibility of pro-
ducing great works of literature over the air, and
this first of seven installments will attempt to
exhibit the character of the book itself, an
entirely new departure in radio drama.
Saturday afternoon at 12:15, WWJ will pre-
sent the second act of the opera, "Lohengrin,"
from the Wagner Festival at Bayreuth, Germany.
The cast for this afternoon's performance will
include Ludwig Hofmann, Franz Voeleker, Maria
Mueller, Jaro Prohaska, Margaret Klose and Her-
bert Jansen.
