A Noble Heritage
And Its Future ...
T HE COMPOSITION of the Board in
Control of Student Publications has
now been conclusively re-established by the Re-
gents, and the additional faculty appointments
have been made. The revision has been accepted
by the publications board, and for the present
the issue is settled.
To the new faculty men appointed, we extend
a sincere welcome to the publications fold. We
have fought vigorously the addition of more
faculty membership to the Board, but our fight
was one of principles, not of personalities.
Our reasons for opposing the change were
fundamental; we believe they involved basic
principles of self government which belonged
rightly to the students of the University.
N OR do we mean to impugn the motives of the
men who have backed the revision. Many
believed, and believed sincerely, that the change
would aid and strengthen The Daily. In the
short run, their reasons may be valid.
What we are fighting for is a long term policy.
One which will hold long after the personalities
involved have been forgotten. Our principle is
much the same as that presented by th demo-
cratic system. In efficiency and general suc-
cess, we must admit, democracy falls far short
of a benevolent, omniscent dictatorship. Benevo-
lence and omniscience are, however, only tem-
porary in nature. Benevolence today may easily
become malevolence tomorrow, and because we
fear this eventuality, we today prefer to fight
SQO 4LSO, by relinquishing their rights of full
representation, the students may achieve
temporary advantages. Once relinquished, how-
ever, these rights no longer can serve a protec-
tive measure if administrative changes in years
to come swing from benevolence to malevolence.
The Daily in past years has been run and ad-
ministered by students. Under this leadership,
and with the accompanying pride in a true stu-
dent paper, The Daily has grown to be one of
the top college papers in the country. We hope
this heritage shall not become but a golden past.
For the present, the issue is settled. To the
thousands of students and facultymen who
backed our stand, we wish to express our full
W E WISH also to thank the retiring members
of the Board, Professors McLaughlin and
Calderwood. They have never failed to stand
by what they believed was best for The Daily.
We shall miss their aid and counsel.
Further changes in the composition of the
Board are in the hands of the RIegents. We
shall do our best to conduct a Daily consistent
with the best interests of the students, the Uni-
versity and our noble heritage, hoping that some
day, when the clouds of resentment stirred up
- by the revision fight have cleared, we shall be
able to regain what we have lost.

Needs Student Aid .. .
OW ENTERING its fifth year of
service, the Student Textbook Lend-

arship funds in providing aid to needy students.

By BARBARA JENSWOLD
Sparked by the brilliant performances of Ada
McFarland as Beatrice and Hugh Norton as
Benedick, the Repertory Players' opening sul-
mer offering of Much Ado About Nothing last
evening gave a too-small audience something to
really enjoy and to carry away. Not a point in
the delightful and witty repartee which the Bard
gave these characters was missed-they proved,
'ather, a foundation for the play.
A cast better selected than that for the Play
Production offering in the spring considerably
strengthened Much Ado for this second produc-
tion. The new Claudio, James Moll, put a lift
into his interpretation which put him in line
among the most outstanding of the actor\
About the only suggestion we have to offer him
is that he emphasize the transitions between di-
rect conversations and asides which are his
business in the scene in which Benedick is hid-
Leonato, Norman Oxhandler, outshone his
brother Antonio, Marvin Levey, by far. The
latter was weak and insignificant. But orchids
to the former! Also to the gentlewoman, Marg-
aret-she was smart, we could see. And William
Halstead's Dogberry, though it was shadowy at
first, strengthened out in time to be a truly fine
bit of acting.
Back to Benedick, now, for commendations.
The facial expressions were perfect, the transi-
tions unequalled. "Rich she shall be, that is cer-
tain," and "In the which, good sir, I shall desire
your help," among others could never in the
world be missed by the audience.
As for Miss McFarlahd, perhaps the most ade-
quate expression for the impression she gave is
that she "lorded it over all." Not an iota of the
strength of that character was sacrificed to the
woman in her. We could see nothing in the way
of improvement to recommend to Miss McFar-
Two rather bitter criticisms, and another not
so bad we have to offer about factors which dis-
credited the play as a whole. One is in regard
to the plotting scenes with Don John, Jack
Mitchell. One who is not too familiar with this
play would almost lose track of the action's mo-
tivation from that point on, because of the weak
ness of these few scenes. Their talk was too
intimate to get across the footlights; when per-
fect strangers are introduced so late in the ac-
tion, it is necessary that they be stronger and
more noticeable to give them a reason for en-
tering the play.
The second point is technical. When shifts
were made from scene to scene, it seemed that
cues were too well learned, for it was easy to
become confused in the transitions involved and
some of those transitions were pretty large. A
Shakespeare work must of necessity be speeded
up for the accommodation of the audience, but
there is a limit.
Third point is on lighting, which at times
placed actors in shadow and which roughened
the time sequence.
Taking all in all, however, we recommend the
Repertory Players' Much Ado About Nothing as
a really notable performance.
Did Hess Carry
A War-Peace Plan?
G EORGE SELDES' much criticized
pint-sized weekly, In Fact, purport-
ing to publish "for the millions who want a free
press" but often in the past accused of pro-Nazi
tendencies, came out this week with information
from London and Washington revealing the
secret of Herr Hess' jaunt to Scotland.
According to this information, Hess brought
with him an offer of peace in exchange for war.
Hitler would be willing to make peace with
Britain if Britain would join Germany against
Russia. Germany would be given back her Afri-
can colonies and would gain certain territories
in Europe, including Ukraine, Alsace and Lor-
raine, while France would be restored with the
exception of those two provinces.
STILL according to In Fact's information, Hess
intended to refuel and take an answer back
to Hitler within two days. Hess sought out the
Duke of Hamilton, because the latter was a
leader of the English Buchmanites, a pro-Nazi
group. The rest of In Fact's article is devoted to
showing the strength of Buchmanism in the
THE QUESTION that immediately comes to
mind is, if this was the real purpose of Hess'
flight, why was there such secrecy surrounding
the entire affair, and why did Winston Churchill
not reveal this peace-war proposal to Parlia-
It might be possible to accept In Fact's in-
formntinn and reason that Mr. Churchill did not

vals fill around 10 inches of this page, and at
other times get guest columnists to do my dirty
work for me. Whenever this column is short
enough, the edit page will also have a column by

they have a lot to learn-Pearson and Allen.

Well, exams for last semester are over, and
like they say about war, there's even some humor
in the grim business of examinations. This is
the true story of a certain athlete that took a
certain final; or at least the prof who tells it
swears it's true.
Evidently the questions weren't quite to this
fellow's liking. When the bluebook was turned
in it was utterly blank except for these few

should be. And I ain't in the pay of nobody.

IF this peace-war plan were the object of Hess'
visit, an immediate revelation of the proposal
would have been to England's gain. Such a plan,
authoritatively issued, would show a Hitler that
the English people have waited long to see: a
Hitler admitting that the conquest of Britain
was beyond his present power; a Hitler telling
the world that Germany could no longer hold
out on her own resources but in need of the
wheat. fields of the Ukraine and the extensive
oil fields in order to exist; a Hitler asking the
aid of a foe in order to gain these necessities;
and a Hitler willing to forfeit much of its present
gains in order to accomplish this objective.

THIS SUMMER RADIO rightfully
rises in its place in Ann Arbor's
sun. "Mike" at Morris Hall basks in
the light of some shining innova-
tions-summer session radio assem-
blies, the new second edition of Pro-
fessor Abbot's "Handbook of Broad-
casting," distinguished visiting in-
structors and guests.
Today in the Rackham Amphi-
theatre's coolness and comfort the
first' radio assembly is lheld, from
4:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Everyone in-
terested in these non-technical mo-
tion pictures on radio will be wel-
come. Nine sound films are to be
shown-"On the Air," "Behind the
Mike," "Family Album," "Radio and
Television," and "Color Harmony,"
Consequent assemblies will feature
Miss Geraldine Elliott, continuity
editor, Mr. Owen Uridge, assistant
general manager, and Mr. Leo Fitz-
patrick, vice-president and general
manager-all of Station WJR in De-
troit; Miss Judith Waller, director of
the Public Service Program of the
NBC, Mr. S. Stephenson Smith, edu-
cational counselor of ASCAP, and
Mr. Earl McGill, casting director
and producer of the CBS.
This summer the radio staff is
studded by the presence of Mr. James
Church, on leave from the NBC's
production staff he has served for
the past ten years, directing among
many others, the programs of the
Radio Guild and Great Play Series,
Manhattan Merry-Go-Round, and
Adventures in Reading. Formerly
director of the Civic Theatre in Den-
ver, Mr. Church was also instructor
at Northwestern University, and
member of the staff of the Cleveland
To the students of his initial sec-
tion in broadcasting technique, Mr.
Church mentioned the merits of luck
and bluff in radio work, his personal
experience with regional stations,
not only selling time and announcing,
but arranging schedules and pro-
grams-"even to sweeping out the
place." Mr. Church favors the re-
laxation from "ear fatigue" after
hours of auditioning, and disapproves
of visible audiences for the radio
actor, whose prime concern should
be that ofhis listeners. He pointed
out the defense for so-called "soap
operas," showing their wide appeal,
with radio's commitment to satisfy
the demand-which can and is
steadily improving. "Ten years ago
an hour and a half of symphony mu-
sic would never have survived the
flick of the switch."
While Mr. Church presents radio
adaptations over WJR, Mr. Donald
E. Hargis will provide that station
with militant poetry. Instructor in
speec hat the University of Oregon,
Mr. Hargis returns for his second
season of teaching at Michigan-
much to the delight of those of us
who had some memorable times en-
acting radio scenes with him two
We are also still favored with the
indispensable presence of Charles
Moore, Chief Engineer of Broadcast-
ing Service, and assistant to Director
Waldo Abbot. With Professo Abbot,
he will present again his summer
laboratory in the 'Production and
Reproduction of Speech.
Many more of our Michigan men
are now announcing professionally.
Ward Quaal has joined the staff of
Station WGN in Chicago, and Bob
Lewis, WTRY, in Troy, New York.
Maury Mazer works with WOOD in
Grand Rapids, while Peter Antonelli
enjoys announcing and selling in
Beckley, W. Va., at WJLS. Mort
Jampel, most recent groom around
Morris Hall, is now program director
at WSOO in Sault Ste. Marie, where
Frank Firnschild and his wife also
work and reside. Dick Slade contin-
ues as staff announcer at WWJ's
new frequency modulation station,
W45D, while much-missed Whitfield
Connor carries on with the drama at
the Cain Park Theatre in Cleveland.
The question of drafting college
students is a lively issue not only
among the colleges, who face declin-
ing enrollments next year if their
students are put into the army, but
also among draft boards from coast
The issue, in its simplest terms, is
just this-is there any reason why
college men should be granted priv-
ileges of exemption not granted to
other men of the same age? The
public has strong feelings pro and
con about 'this issue. Only one per-
son in seventeen in the survey has
an opinion-an unusually small pro-
The majority of voters ,think col-
lege boys should be deferred from the
draft because they say the country
needs college trained men, for fu-
ture leadership, or, as a number of
voters in the survey put it:
"We need trained brains as well
as trained bodies."
