The editorials published in The Michigan
Dail3y are written by members of the Daily
staff and represent the views of the writers
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.
-Alexander G, Ruthven.
Starts His Pure...
YESTERDAY President Roosevelt be-
gan his campaign for liberals in the
Democratic primaries with four speeches in
Ohio and Kentucky. In Ohio the President en-
dorsed Senator Bulkley, a proven New Dealer
rumning against former Governor White, who
also claims to champion the Administration's
policies. More significant was the invasion of
Kentucky, where the President spoke for Sena-
tor Barkley, his lieutenant and majority floor
leader in the upper house, opposed for renomin-
ation -by Governor "Happy" Chandler, a marked
conservative and enemy of the New Deal. Gover-
nor Chandler has a strong political machine in
the state, but it now appears reasonably certain
that Senator Barkley will be returned.
The chances are that Mr. Roosevelt will also
take an active hand in at least five other Demo-
cratic primaries. He is likely to intervene in
Oklahoma in behalf of Senator Thomas, a de-
voted New Dealer, and in California in behalf of
Senator McAdoo. He will probably speak in
Nevada against the candidacy of Senator Mc-
Carran of Nevada, Senator George of Georgia
and Senator Byrnes of South Carolina, all of
whom have turned against the Administration
on important reforms.
Party politics apparently have forced the Presi-
dent to forego invasion of several states where
conservative Democrats are likely to receive re-
nomination. He has already indicated his inten-
tion of remaining aloof from the Indiana pri-
mary, where nomination is still made by con-
vention and where the reactionary Senator Van
Nuys appears assured of renomination, due to
fear of a split among state Democratic leaders
which would hurt the chances of Paul V. McNutt,
former Indiana governor and now high com-
missioner to the Philippines, who has grown more
and more enthusiastic in recent months over the
idea of a McNutt in the'White House. Mr. Roose-
velt likewise has said that he will not interfere in
the Colorado primary, where the conservative
Senator Adams is running against Justice Ben-
jamin Hilliard, a New Dealer:
The abandonment of any part of the program
of presidential support for liberal candidates to
the Senate is unfortunate. President Roosevelt
has every right, as head of the Democratic Party,
to attempt to see that men who will live up to the
party's platform be elected to office. Granted that
principles are not always easy to reconcile with
political expediency, it is hard to see how the
New Deal can benefit much from the election of
a reactionary Democrat in preference -to a re-

party remain loyal to the avowed program of

In Poland And Britain ...
G ERMANY won one and lost one in a
recent European "educational" con-
test. A New York Times dispatch from Berlin an-
nounced the signing of an agreement between
the German and Polish education ministries
providing that school textbooks be revised to
eliminate "all expressions and phrases liable to
offend the national feelings of either country".
The dispatch further stated that "As interpreted
by the German press the agreement should lead
to a dispassionate presentation of the epochs in
which the two countries opposed each other. Part
of the agreement calls for deletions from texts
that might be interpreted as insulting or likely
to injure national sensibilities." It is further in-
tended to extend the agreement to other
branches of education.
This will, of course, meet with the approval
of the German minority in Poland which charged
that it was discriminated against in violation of
the Polish-German accord of November, 1937.
The German sympathizers in Poland will now
be able to send their children to Polish schools
and be content that the children will get the best
that German education can afford to give to
England, on the other hand, made no'agree-
ment with Germany, but much of the German
"education" was seeping in through an exchange
of letters between British and German school
children which was encouraged with the idea
of fostering better relations between the two
peoples. It was soon found, however, that more
and more politics were introduced into the let-
ters coming from Germany-upon official Nazi
instigation, it was suspected--such as: "We are
glad to see Mr. Eden has gone. Now perhaps your
country will not be so hostile to us." Such pro-
pagandistic activities, along with the discovery
of German sabotage "field-workers", brought
a rigid tightening of control by the English au-
thorities. Thus, here the Germans have lost
These two instances are typical of the German
propagandistic activities to hit below the ma-
turity belt. By spreading their ideas among the
children through textbooks and lectures, the
Nazis are using an extremely potent method, one
which may not now evidence itself in complete
success, but will in the future serve the Nazi
cause well. Thus, the Polish agreement for the
Nazis is a'long stride in the direction of perman-
ent acceptance among the peoples of Central
Europe, but for the more democratic nations is
an insidious weapon which must be constantly
The English and of course, the French too,
are in a much more strategic position to resist
German "education" than the the Poles and
other smaller European nationalities. But we are
forced to wonder what will become of Polish
national unity, that unity which was fought for
so bitterly before and during the World War, now
that Germany will "aid" in Poland's "educa-
tion". Even though the agreement calls for the
deletion of sections of books so that nations'
sensibilities are not injured, it is naive to ex-
pect that during the revision Poland will be
able to demand as much respect for her sensi-
bilities as will Germany for hers.
The Rackham Fund
To the Editor:
Now that the spiring gracelessness of the
Burton Tower has become fact, and the inver-
tebrate mass of the graduate school an integral
part of all University advertising, it may well
be time to evaluate the desirability of these re-
cent gifts to the University. More important, it
is time to suggest more effective methods of re-
conciling the praise due famous men with the
essential needs of the school.
For it has become increasingly apparent to
the students, if not to the alumni, that a gross
divergence between Michigan's growth in physi-
cal plant and her growth in academic stature
has developed in recent years. Unfortunately
certain donors have come to view the University
as only an adjunct to the buildings and grounds
department. And even more unfortunately, some
there are who justify such attitudes; who declare
that whatever is done with such sums is the best
that can be expected. But this is a counsel of
despair. If those who provided endowments had
no interest in the real needs of the school, we
might well deed them forty acres in darkest
Africa to lavish their riches in. This is no answer.
No more is it to contend that the prime aim of
donors should not be to perpetuate revered
patronymics and that's that. Of course this
latter is true. But the real problem, is a deeper
one, one of taking these factors for granted and
then attempting to reconcile them with the fun-
damental needs of the University.
Two suggestions might be made. One, that
future gifts be placed in endowments to pay the
salaries of a certain category of teachers. For
example, all lecturers might be paid by Rackham
endowment funds (be termed Rackham lecturer
in animal Econolgy, Rackham lecturer in the
Theory of Counterpoint, etc.) If all lecturers in
the university were endowed by the Rackham
funds, fully as much publicity would be given the
name Rackham as the graduate school could
provide. Smaller endowments might be used for
the salaries of lecturers or instructors within

The administration in Washington is protect-
ing American reds. Once they were almost ex-
tinct, but now they are increasing rapidly. I re-
fer, of course, to the population report of the
National Resources Commit-
tee, which finds that the tide
has turned for the Indian.
But I could go on to note the
fact, that long before the
New Deal the government
Yrdid embark upon a policy of
".paternalism in regard to the
Indian. Even in the deepest
depression no Sioux or Crow
has ever starved to death.
For lo these many years the Indian has been on
relief, and there have been few complaints con-
cerning this situation.
It was generally recognized that men and wo-
men of this good old American stock could not,
survive under rugged individualism. In order to
save them from extinction they were made wards
of the state. It is curious that this policy has
aroused such a small amount of criticism, be-
cause, in effect, the government is maintaining
the first native Communists.
The Indians who roamed this land before the
coming of the various white armies were red in
fact as well as face. Their collectivism was of a
primitive sort, but within the tribe there was a
sharing of the wealth, and fields are tilled co-

Here's An idea For A Soldier
Indeed, I think a scholar might do a really seri-
ous book on the relationship between the Ameri-
can Indian and the French Revolution. Let me
state an oversimplified hypothesis with the hope'
that some educated man can fill in the gaps. I
assume that Rousseau, although he was a ro-
matic (or maybe because he was romantic), pro-
foundly influenced early revolutionary thought.
He was "one of the spiritual fathers of our own
Revolution, since Thomas Jefferson read him
avidly. His influence on the French Revolution
was even more direct. According to the Columbia
Encyclopedia, "his plan provided that individuals
should freely surrender their absolute power
over themselves to the people as a whole ...'
Today that might be called liberal democracy,
but it was revolution at the end of the eighteenth
century. Rousseau believed in the natural worth
and goodness of man if only he could be rescued
from social and economic maladjustment. And
that'/ where the American Indian comes in, be-
cause Rousseau drew much of his concept of the
noble savage from such scraps of information as
he received from the New World.
* * *
The Setup Was Tough On Him
Salvation was to come from contact with the
woods and streams and the simple pleasures
which arise from living close to nature. While
he did not match up wholly to this ideal, the
native Indian of America was probably a good
fellow when he had it. His cruelties came to the
fore chiefly when he fought for his own posses-
sions and his own civilization. Aside from the
Carlisle Indians and a few big league ball players,
the noble redman just crumpled up under a fier-
cely competitive economic setup. Under paterna-
lism he begins to flourish.
According to the report of the National Re-
sources Committee, the original American is
growing more rapidly than any other ethnic
stock. I have no particular stake in the fate of
the aborigine. The only Indian I even knew well
was Chief Meyers, who could hit like a demon but
who threw down to second as if he were putting
the sixteen-pound shot. Still, it would have done
much to cripple modern conversation if the na-
tive Americans had become extinct.
I'know a girl who would be tongue-tied if it
were not possible for her to say every once and so
often, "Let's give that back to the Indians." She
thinks its an epigram. But it would be an even
more uproarious joke if the Indians increase so
much in the next few generations that it will be
quite unnecessary to give back anything to them.
They might just step out and take it.
