It is important for society to avoid the
neglect of adults, but positively dangerous
for it to thwart the ambition of youth to
reform the world. Only the schools which
act on this belief are educational institu-
tions in the best meaning of the term:

"Fanny, why don't you pray to God to make
you better?" a friend asked Mrs. Siddon's' little
niece, sonewhat more than a century ago.
"So I do," Fanny Kemble answered, "and He
makes me worse and worse."
Fanny Kemble
"Fanny Kemble, a Passionate Victorian"
(Macmillan, $3), Margaret Armstrong calls her
book; it is the Book-of-the-Month Club's July
selection. It is not only the portrait of a high-
strung daughter of a family which, in its day, was
to England what the Barrymores have been to
our America; it is also a pageant of Victorian
England and America.
For Fanny Kemble grew up in days when it
was 'considered wise punishment to take a naugh-
ty little girl to see a criminal's head sliced off
by the guillotine; she became the first actress of
the London stage before she was twenty; she
toured America in the 1830's and married the
richest slaveholder in Georgia; she revolted at
slavery and broke with her husband; she did her
bit to convert England during our Civil War by
publishing her diary of Georgia plantation days,
and she lived, homesick in Italy, happy in Swit-
zerland, to be one of Henry James's major in-
spirations. She was born in 1809; she died in
1893.
The Kembles were for more than a century the
gods Qf the London stage; they defied conven-

The Middle
Of The Road.. .

An increasing number of Americans are tak-
ing the position advocated yesterday by Profes-
sor Roy W. Sellars in his lecture on social phi-
losophy-a middle-of-the-road position between
"individualistic liberalism and collectivist so-
cialism." They think that there is a great deal
wrong in our present set-up but feel that these
ills may be appreciably mitigated within the
confines of the present capitalist structure and
that if some measure of socialism is to be
achieved it may be reached through appeals to
conscience and intelligence and not through vio-
lence. The middle of the roaders feel that the
ends to be obtained are more equality, democra-
cy, opportunity, security and the like, but are
not agreed on or aware of the appropriate meth-
ods to obtain these ends.
The question of whether such a position is ten-
able is one easily and peremptorily avoided. The
adherents of this compromise position usually
admit that they do not continue their thinking
to the logical conclusion. In the consideration
of the tenability of the position these important
questions might be asked:
1. Does not the inertia of economic and 'historic
forces render the position nugatory?
The present administration has taken a long
number of legislative and administrative "steps
in the right direction." The whole host of alpha-
betical organizations are familiar to most every-
one. But each of these "steps in the right direc-
tion" does not grapple with the roots of the
problem. Our country has been the greatest
country in the world for reform because it never
has performed an effective surgical operation on
the roots of our economic problems. The Se-
curities and Exchange Commission cannot elimi-
nate the disasters accompanying wholesale mis-
calculation of risk by stock exchange operators.
The Civilian Conservation Corps will not elimi-
nate the problem of unemployed youth. Th'e
Wagner Act, by enforcing the right of collective
bargaining, cannot cope with causes of indus-
trial unrest. The multifarious unemployment
compensation acts make but weak attempts at
the cure of unemployment. The problem is one
of business cycle control, which demands some
sort of planning, and which is as yet alien to
the American business palate. The slum clear-
ance projects can, according to Administrator
Strauss, take care of only 10 per cent of those
at the very bottom of the economic ladder who
suffer from poor housing. Wielding a 1938 model
of the "Big Stick" cannot restore free compe-
tition, nor is free competition necessarily de-
sirable; the problem is not one of regulation but
of ownership and control. Similar statements can
be made about each of the Roosevelt reforms.
'At best they are mere palliatives in a scheme of
patchwork, but yet as patchwork they disturb
the "confidence" of the business man. They do
not deal with the root of the system, the price-
profits-competition mechanism, whose malad-
justments cannot be corrected without wholesale
changes which are questionable.
2. Can the given ends of more equality, de-
mocracy, security and opportunity be achieved.
with half-hearted gradualness?

AsOthers See It
Mein Kampf!
Louis took the offensive and missed two short
lefts as Schmeling crouched cautiously.
"Biologically, Hitlerism divides mankind into
one superior race-the, Aryans-and the other
degraded slave-races."
-Stephen H. Roberts in "The House Hitler
Built."
Louis nailed Schmeling against the ropes and
smashed Max with rights and vicious lefts....
"The Germans are a superior race and it is or-
dained that this superior race shall conquer the
earth."
-Dorothy Thompson, paraphrasing Der
Fuehrer, in "I Saw Hitler."
Max shot over a short right that halted Louis'
whirlwind drive. Louis shot over a short hard
right that made Max grunt..-. .
"In the nearer centuries, Aryan stock dom-
inated the world to its everlasting good."
-Kurt G. W. Ludecke in "I Knew Hitler."
A hard right staggered Schmeling and Louis
piled in as Max leaned against the ropes. Louis
smashed Max at will and floored him for a count
of three....
"It is hardly imaginable that anyone should
think that a German could be made out of, say,
a Negro or a Chinaman, because he has learned
'German and is ready to talk it for the rest of his
life. . . . The process would mean a beginning of
bastardization of our race."
-Adolf Hitler in "Mein Kampf."
The stunned, amazed Teuton arose, stretched
against the ropes, only to be sent down almost
instantly with another hard left and right. But
he was up after a count of one, only to be
sprawled again with a terrific right to the
jaw-...
"Perhaps the pacifist-humane idea is quite a
good one in cases where the man at the top has
first thoroughly conquered and subdued the
world to the extent of making himself master
of it."
-Adolf Hitler in "Mein Kampf."
As he lay almost in the center of the ring, half
unconscious, with the count reaching eight,
Schmeling's handler threw the towel into the
ring and ended the fight.
Gott im Himmel!
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
of an American Labor Party. The really great
proposals of the Administration, the Tennessee
Valley Authority and the idea of government
ownership of the railroads have been presented
to the public in such a distasteful ligĀ±t that their
constructiveness has been obscured. Aside from
the open and flagrant opposition to the feeble
Roosevelt measures there is the great American
lethargy to combat. The lethargy may or may
not be compulsory, according to how much in-
fluence the business of getting a living impedes
progressive thinking, but this lethargy inhibits
the policy of gradualness at every turn.
3. May not the policy of evolution, or gradual-
ness, lead as well to fascism as to the desired
ends of increased democracy, security, equality
and opportunity?
In Germany the ideals of "a fair profit," "self-
government in business," and "the business man"
have been apotheosized. These ideals sound un-
comfortably similar to those echoed at the time
the Blue Eagle of the NRA winged America. The
National Recovery Act, as pointed out by Robert
Brady, professor of economic's at the University
of California in his Spirit and Structure of Ger-
man Fascism, was in philosophy and administra-
tion markedly similar to the German business
formula. The United States Chamber of Com-
merce heartily approved of the NRA and had,
in fact, drafted a plan of recovery closely re-
sembling the plan adopted even before the Roose-
velt inauguration.
Prof. Oskar Lange, in the book, On the Eco-
nomic Theory of Socialism, forcefully makes the
point that the problems of achieving a greater
degree of socialization in the United States is not
chiefly economic but political and sociological.

tions which ostracized stage folk from proper
society. Reynolds, Gainsborough and Lawrence
felt honored to paint Fanny's Aunt Sara Sid-
dons; her Uncle John smiled complacently when
Byron called him "supernatural"; wits said of
John that in his retirement in Switzerland he
was jealous only of Mont Blanc. Apollo might
have envied the looks of Fanny's father, Charles;
her grandfather had rescued a king; her mother
had been known as "the little French fairy," and
known by royalty, before she married the Olym-
pian Charles.
A Star At 19
Fanny grew up "poor." Her father had in-
herited the Covent Garden Theatre and its
eternal debts, and Covent Garden weighed on
the family for decades. It was partly in the
hope of rescuing it that Charles put Fanny Kem-
ble on as Juliet when she was only nineteen, and
for a time she did bring back the old Kemble
prosperity. It was typical of her that she could
hardly be heard through the first act; she won
all her plaudits in the last act. She never out-
grew stage fright, and more than once, when a
play ended in a scream, she could not stop
screaming, and was carried off in hysterics. But
she became the toast of England.
New York In 1832
Fanny and her father determined to try their
fortune in America. Their ship made a fast voy-
age-five weeks to New York. They put up at
New York's best hotel-the American, on Broad-
way. But the washbasins crawled with red ants,
one clothes closet was infested with moths, an-
other with bugs. Fanny did not like the drink-
ing water, brought to the hotel daily in big butts.
(Conservative New Yorkers thought it unsafe to
drink water that had run underground through
metal pipes.). Fanny was impressed with the
clean, comfortable hackney coaches; but thought
the private carriages shabby, and was amazed
that the mnen-servants were not in livery. The
pigs rooting in the streets appalled her; but she
thought American men exceptionally courteous,
and was surprised to see no poor around. And
she loved the trees on the Battery, and the fine
forests across the river and up the island, beyond
the Bowery.
Washington And Philadelphia
Dolly Madison and John Quincy Adams came
to see Fanny in Washington; Chief Justice Mar-
shall wept at her acting. She liked battered old
President Jackson, but thought the White House,
forlornly set in a withered-grass plot with palings
in front and at the back a stretch of untidy
waste land, "unfortunate." And wherever she
went-and she went almost everywhere, even
away out to Niagara Falls and up to Quebec-the
swankiest young men in America danced atten-
dance on her.
Pierce Butler, of Philadelphia and Georgia,
followed Fanny on tour, playing the flute in the
orchestra in order to be near her, and in June,
1834, Fanny married Pierce and was somewhat
dubiously admitted to Philadelphia society. She
shocked Philadelphia by her open distaste for
bores, even when of the best families; she spoke
of an Edinburgh fish-wife as her friend; she
invited actors to dine, which was a littl more
than Pierce could stand. He could marry an
actress, if she retired; he could not entertain
mere stage folk. Fanny tended to agree with Mr.
Emerson, who said that "If the world were all
Philadelphia, although the poultry and dairy
market would be admirable, I fear suicide would
be exceedingly prevalent."
Shipwrecked Marriage
So Fanny followed her husband to his rice
plantations on the Altamaha River, in Georgia,
close to those marshes of Glynn which Stephen
Lanier was one day to make immortal. Pierce
Butler considered himself a model slaveholder.
He had an infirmary; he flogged very little; he
seldom broke up families. But Fanny was shocked
by what she saw. The infirmary was filthy and
dark; the cabins were filthier; when she com-
plained to her husband that the women did not
have time to keep their babies clean, the in-
formers were flogged. The aristocracy of the
South seemed to her merely pitiable; she tired
of old men telling of the great days "before the
wa"-before the Revolution.
Pierce Butler told Fanny she was ruining his
slaves with her mistaken tenderness; with the

current price of cotton and rice he had enough
on his mind without this everlasting fuss about
sick babies and religion and flannel petticoats.
He forbade her to bring him any more tales;
when she said ,she would write books to earn
money for her charities, he reminded her that by
law a wife's earnings belonged to her husband.
He forbade her to correspond with her Abolition-
ist friends in the North.
The quarrel went deeper than slavery; soon the
couple had separated, Pierce forbidding the
children to see their mother. Fanny returned to
Europe; Pierce sued her for desertion. She re-
turned to America, determined to fight. The
court refused to admit her statements as evi-
dence, but they appeared in the newspapers. Fan-
' y had to wait seven years to see her daughters-
until they became of age.
Sunset
Back in England, Fanny was amply able to
take care of herself. She was a Kemble. She
became Macready's leading lady; she gave
Shakespearean "readings," very popular in that
day, both in England and in America. The Long-
fellows and the Alcotts were her friends. But it
was not until 1863, when she was shocked to dis-
cover herEngland so friendly to the cause of the
slavocracy, that, she finally published that 1836

FORUM
To the Editor:
Just a line to bring to your at-
tention an error which has been
committed twice to my knowledge.
In two articles concerning visiting
Judge Phillips, it has been said he is
onc of ten similar ranking Federal
Circuit Court judges. There are in
fact from 3 to.5 such judges in each
of the 10 circuits.I
This is no aspersion on JudgeE
Phillips whom I enjoy very much in
class and who is a very able judge.
But I am sure he would be the last,
to disdain accuracy in reporting.

The Passing
Of A Poet,. .
James Weldon Johnson, who was
killed Sunday in a grade-crossing ac-
cident in Maine, was, by whatever
measure, an extraordinary man. It
probably is not too much to say that
he was the most distinguished Negro
in the United States. A man ofvgreat
personal dignity, he fought over the
long years-never extravagantly but
always with reasonableness-for the
just recognition of the black race.
He believed in the ability of the
American Negro to produce genuinely
original art and literature, and he
wrote and spoke persuasively of the
contributions of the black man, pa-
ticularly in the fields of poetry and
music. He was a shrewd politician,
and rebelled at the idea that the Ne-
gro should be used as the catspaw
of any one political party. Negroes
everywhere, as well as every white
American. have every reason to be
proud of this long and useful life.
To be sure, he had unusual talents.
He had many "firsts" to his credit-
the first Negro college student to
pitch a curve ball, the first Negro to
be admitted to the Florida bar, the
first Negro to gain a place on the
faculty of New York University, and
so on. He could write popular songs,
but he also could write moving poetry
and a clear and forceful prose, and
he was the author of that hymn
which has come to be known as the
Negro national anthem, "Lift Ev'ry
Voice." He and his highly gifted
brother, Rosamond Johnson, were
popular and familiar figures in Tin
Pan Alley almost forty years ago.
But Janies Weldon Johnson was
much more than that. He had been
editor, diplomatist, lecturer, educa-
tor, reformer. There was nothing
cringing or apologetic in his make-
up; likewise, there was nothing brash.
He was a scholarly gentleman whose
name will be remembered as long as
there are records of the romantic and
always poignant story of the black
man in America. He understood this
story, this struggle, in all its sadness
and all its bravery.
-New York Herald Tribune.
Sweden In America
Americans feel at home in Sweden,
and for more than three hundred
years the descendants of the little
band of Swedish pioneers, since mul-
tiplied by hundreds of thousands of
Swedish immigrants, have felt at
home in the United States. In a very
real sense they are bone and mar-
row of this country. A fellowship of
ideals, a genuine fusion of spirit and
purpose, underly the extraordinary
warmth with which we celebrate the
tercentenary of the landing of the
first Swedish settlers on these shores.
The Swedish Mayflower, Kalmar
Nyckel, or the Key of Kalmar, came
from Gothenburg to the rocks at the
mouth of the Delaware not long
after the English Mayflower landed
the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock. A
model of the little ship which bore the

pioneers from Sweden and Finland,
then a Swedish province, tops the
tall, black granite shaft which the
President accepted yesterday as a gift
symbolizing three centuries of un-
broken friendship between the two
countries.
More than most international sym-
bols, this monument expresses a sen-
timent as solid as the rocks on which
it stands. The President personified
the American people when he went
to Wilmington to welcome the
Kungsholm and the represen'tatives
of the old Kingdom of Sweden and
the new republic of Finland. His
presence signified more than a desire
to commemorate the tercentenary of
a colony which, like many of the
early settlements on this beckoning
bul inhospitable continent, was small
a'nd short-lived. It signified more
than a gesture of amity to Sweden
and Finland, nations we admire for
their sturdy political democracy,
their social enlightenment and the
emphasis they place on individual
liberty and equality.
We welcome this opportunity to do
honor to our own citizens of Swedish
and Finnish stock and to pay tribute
to the great contribution they have
made to the material and spiritual
upbuilding of America. The monu-
ment at Christiana Park reminds us
that we are New Sweden as well as
New England or New Amsterdam. We
have reason to congratulate ourselves
as much as the royal delegates from
Stockholm on the Northmen's vir-
tues-independence, courage, indus-
try, civic responsibility, love of free-
