T HERE MAY BE TALK of a peace
pact in Europe, but the scenes be-
hind the scenes seem to belie all rumors.
If an agreement is reached, evidence points to
the probability that anything said or done will
be only temporary.
Germany has armaments, evidently all she
needs, otherwise there would be no rhyme nor
reaeson for her trading arms for Rumanian
It is this' wheat and other food stores that
Germany lacks at present. With sufficient
stores she would be ready. This barter with
Rumania, coupled with negotiations for trade
with Russia and other similar plans point to a
well prepared Germany in the very near future.
Reports of a good harvest and the recruiting
of all available citizens for harvesting make the
situation look much better-for Germany.
England doesn't want to start anything in
Europe; neither does Germany, until she is
ready. The question as to how soon she will be
ready seems to have but one answer: too soon.

Alumni Quarterl
The Summer edition of the Michigan Alumnus
Quarterly Review, edited by )ilfred B. Shaw,
issued yesterday, is one of the most virile that
has gone to press for a long time.
Containing Carl Van Doren's recent Hopwood
address, "The First American Man of Letters,"
and President Ruthven's commencement speech,
"A Naturalist in Our Times," the Quarterly also
presents articles dealing with such varied and
pertinent topics as the German situation, the
possibility of a capitalistic downfall and the
place of America in the Antarctic. Also included
are the usual number of pieces pertaining to
activities within the University.
Of certain interest to all are the questions
raised and the conclusions set forth by Lester
E. Waterbury, attorney for the General Foods
Corporation of New York City, in his article on
"The Inevitability of Capitalist Crisis."
Mr. Waterbury finds the main support of the
profit system to be in the creation of credit, or
debt money, which must be continually increas-
ing. At the same time, he points out, this debt
money must remain valid: that is, the continued
production of profits must be such as to main-
tain the confidence of the bankers that the
debts are collectible. "At some point during the
ballooning of the debt structure." the author
states, "the collectibility of the debts is bound
to become doubtful; this fact necessarily slows
down and evern'ually practically stops the crea-
tion of new dt money; profits of necessity
decline and then virtually disappear."
At this point the debt structure collapses, and
is bolstered up by drafts on public credit, the
article -states. The public debt, always expand-
ing and if not halted, will at some point become
such that the ability of the United States Gov-
ernment to repay will also become doubtful, ac-
cording to Mr. Waterbury. In the ensuing crash,
he visions the possibility of the destruction of
the capitalistic system in this country and of
democracy itself as well.
Prof. John W. Eaton of the German depart-
ment asks in his article on "The German Enig-
