Troubled Waters ***
greet the National Labor Relation
Board's recent action in "liberalizing" its pro-
cedural rules in favor of employers with derisive
shouts of "reactionary," sane-minded friends of
labor will hail the move as the first practical
step toward quelling the storm of protest which
followed the administration of the Wagner Act.
The procedural change, which went into effect
yesterday, permits employers to petition the
Board for elections to determine collective bar-
gaining represetatives when caught in the in-
ternecine warfare of rival unions.
These are troubled times on the labor front
anid unions may well look with suspicion on
efforts of the more selfish employers to rob labor
of its recent gains. Some of the latter would un-
doubtedly jump at the chance of emasculating
the Wagner Act through piecemeal amendment.
But ulterior motives stem from labor leaders
as well as employers, and, labor's ranks are
sprinkled with radical unionists who view the
entire union movement not primarily as a tool
to earn workers a fair share of what they pro-.
duce, but as a weapon of class struggle-a step-
ping stone to the proletarian victory.
Naturally such masqueraders welcome every
effort to weaken employers to the point where
profits will disappear and private enterprise
vanish. To them, a move to preserve private en-
terprise by protecting employers from unjust
restriction is naturally a move to sabotage the
labor movement-as they conceive it. Protests
against the reform in question largely hail from
this direction.
However the great majority of unionists who
are interested in their weekly pay check rather
than the coming millenium will recognize the
Board's action for just what it is--a sorely needed
guarantee against needless stoppages and bick-
ering which alike rob workers of their pay and
employers of their profits.
Previous to the reform employers caught be-
tween rival unions or battling factions of the
same union were helpless to ask the Board for
an election to determine the sole bargaining agent
of'the workers with which the Wagner Act com-
pels him to deal. Elections might be called only
at the bequest of the unions. And in such fac-
tional disputes as the UAW split where two or
more groups claimed the sole privilege of repre-
senting the workers, management recognition of
any one faction was sure to precipitate a strike
from the other. Since the employer was unable to
ask for an election, struggles and strikes dragged
on and the entire labor movement was in danger
of losing the respect of the public, not to mention
the lost wages of the workers.
The Board's reform should thus be praised for
guaranteeing workers against needless wage loss
and preserving the aura of respect founded upon
responsibility which must characterize the
American union movement if its is to function
effectively. It should likewise call attention to
the fact that the wages of labor depend upon the
profits of the employer just as much as the
profits of the employer depend upon the produc-
tivity of the worker. It should emphasize that
one can not flourish without the prosperity of
the other.

McNutt Takes Post

On Japanese
Just as Japanese books are read in an order
which to an American is from back to front, so
the Japanese language uses helping words that
correspond to English prepositions, but puts them
after the nouns they belong with. This curious
aspect of Japanese was described at the Linguistic
Institute luncheon conference yesterday by Mr.
Joseph K. Yamagiwa of the department of Orien-
tal langauges and literature.
These "postpositions," as Mr. Yamagiwa called
these function-words, are formed upon simple
syllables that by themselves are case particles to
be used after a noun. For instance, "ga" after a
noun shows that the noun is in the subject-case,
or the nominative; "wo" after a noun shows that
the noun is the object of an action; "ni", equiva-
lent to the English "to," shows the noun has a
dative function.
In modern ,Japanese these case-particles fre-
quently become elements of compounds, and it
is these compounds which serve as postpositions.
One class, for example, is composed of three
elements-the particle "no" plus a noun indicat-
ing time or place plus one of the particles "ni,"
e", or "de." There are three similar classes.
Although such a combination may be used
with full word meaning, it i, particularly in
colloquial and informal Japanese, more frequent-
ly used as a postposition, said Mr. Yamagiwa.
Thus the compound postposition "ni taishite "
occuring after a noun, means "towards" or
.against." Some statistics revealing the propor-
tionate use of these combinations as postpositions
were presented by Mr. Yamagiwa as a result of
his study of Japanese newspapers.
Checking State Barriers
The wave of interstate business barriers that
has threatened of late years to engulf the Ameri-
can ecenomy and submerge the American stan-
dard of living is receding. That good piece of
news was reported the other day by the United
States Bureau of Agricultural Economics.
What makes this report particularly hearten-
ing, however, is that these damaging restrictions
(quarantine regulations, licenses, ports of entry,
taxes) are being eliminated-very slowly-the
hard way.
States face the choice in reversing this trend
toward the "Balkanization of the United States"
between individual state initiative on a coopera-
tive basis and Federal legislation. The first way
is the harder, for it calls for a practical applica-
tion of the Golden Rule-states doing unto other
states as they would be done by. It runs counter
to immediate local self-interest, to powerful lob-
bies, to backroom politics.
Perhaps the feeling of imminent Federal legis-
lation, should the states not reverse the trend,
played its part in hastening the legislative action
in several states. Nevertheless, the states did not
wait for such prompting from Washington.
In the accumlation of these business barriers
between states, retaliation played a part. States
whose products were discriminated against re-
taliated in kind. There was something of a vicious
circle in the way the barriers accumulated. Now
that a few of the barriers are being dissolved,
might not that tendency to retaliate be turned
about to work for freer trade in the returning
of good for good? In a field in which example
plays such a great part, an opening of markets
by one state might well set off a series of similar
actions by other states.
According to the Bureau's report, more than
a dozen states rejected interstate trade barrier
bills this year. Others lowered existing barriers.
Only two states were reported as setting up new
barriers; Maine forbade importation of "cull"
apples and Wyoming required labeling of "out-
of-state" eggs. The year's balance was on the
side of freer interstate trade.
The number of state laws that must be re-
pealed if all interstate business barriers are to
be eliminated, however, is still well in the hun-
dreds. There is much yet to be done by state legis-
latures. If the trend does prove to have been
turned, there is a great accumulation of dis-
criminatory statutes to be corrected. Constant

vigilance, continual publicity, and cordial co-
operation of all interested parties and persons
are necessary if next year is to see more business
barriers dissolved.

Vandenberg-For-President Club
Offices of a "Vandenberg-for-President Club"
have been opened in Chicago by three Chicago
Incorporators of the Vandenberg Club are John
A. Ricker, I. Roy Ross and Sherman Henry Canty.
Ricker said none of the three had been active
previously in Republican politics.

Those Summer Session students who teach
school during the remainder of the year will best
appreciate this item . . twenty-four years ago
a Detroit school teacher had a fourth grade class
. . . in it was a particularly likeable youngster
to whom she devoted special attention . . . later
she quit the teaching profession, married a Uni-
versity of Michigan faculty man and moved out
here . . . last week she got a letter from the
youngster of 24 years ago . . . he's now 37 years
old . . . and chanced to hear his former teacher's
address . . . the former school teacher was near
tears when she told the story . . . for the letter
said "it's almost a quarter of a century ago but
I still remember you as the swellest teacher I
ever had."
That reminds of an incident which took place
during tag day. By way of explanation, let it be
known that three years ago I decided to take
to the healthy, outdoor life for a summer and be-
came a counsellor at the University Fresh Air
Camp, assigned to the waterfront. Along with
Bill Morgenroth, I taught swimming and lounged
on the dock, showing a considerably greater
ability for the lounging. During the tag day a
scrawny youngster of 13 summers, blond hair
disheveled and garments hanging to his lean
body, suddenly came up to me.
"You're the fellow who taught me how to
swim!" he said. And then he proceeded to give
me the latest dope on the camp and invite me
to visit his cabin if I ever came out.
I was so pleased the kid remembered the inci-
dent that for the next half-hour I concentrated
on making one of those value-judgments Profes-
sor Fuller talks about. Then I remembered the
number of mosquitoes at summer camps, decided
I'd best remain the nervous, indoor type after
all, and ordered a cup of black coffee after dis-
carding the idea of giving the red corpuscles a
break with a glass of milk. But you still may
hearkof Swinton the Camper somebody.
* * *
It was approximately seven years ago that the
powers that be decided to make attendance at
Summer School mandatory for a worker on the
Summer Daily. The city editor of that year
didn't like the idea at all, spent most of his time
grousing about it in fact. Then one day he came
into the office with a smile as broad as a Siberian
"What you'so happy about?" someone queried.
"I finally got even with the University. They
made me take Summer School but things are
even now."
"How come?"
"On the registration card I put my parents
address as Monte Carlo, Monaco. They'll have to
use a five cent stamp instead of a three-cent one
to mail out the grades!"
The fellow who said that, incidently, was Gur-
ney Williams. If the name doesn't strike a
familiar note, suffice to say he's one of the
country's best known humorists now, contributor
to the Saturday Evening Post, College Humor,
New Yorker and the rest. And if you still don't
recall the name look at his article in this week's
Colliers . . .
Real Reading
Mr. Arundell Esdale, presiding at the British
Library Association conference at Liverpool, con-
trasted "real reading" with "inert and credulous
absorption of whatever passes through the eye. "
Mr. Esdaile was alluding especially to imaginative
literature. He deprecated the idea that "real
reading" was "purely for the acquisition of knowl-
edge or of correct opinions."
The books that are read for pure recreation
are assuredly not the least important of our read-
ing. It is not to the discredit of a book that we
choose it for its own sake, and not for the ulterior
end of making ourselves better informed or wiser.
The pleasures of the imagination, the pleasure of

light laughter, the pleasure which we may get,
say, from P. G. Wodehouse (on whom Oxford
University has' recently conferred an honorary
degree) have their place, and indeed, as Mr. Es-
daile said, makes us richer in the "understanding
The good ,librarian, no doubt, will pay great
attention to the quality of the natural scientific
historical, philosophical, sociological and other
didactic works which he brings into his stock, but
his responsibility is not less-perhaps it is more
-when he is acquiring novels, plays, poetry,
imaginative essays, and those other books which
readers want for their holidays, for moments of
supposed idleness.
