Schmitt Analyzes Hitler^sActions in European Crisis+Hitler would have precipitated an¬other world war rather than yield inthe Sudeten crisis, Bernadotte Sch¬mitt, professor of Modern History,concludes in an analysis just pub¬lished of the latest European crisis.“Conceivably a clear-cut declara¬tion by Britain and France beforethe Nuremberg speech and adequatemilitary steps in reply to the Ger¬man measures would have deterredHitler; but after Nuremberg his per¬sonal prestige was involved and, forreasons of internal politics, retreatwould have been extremely difficult,if not impossible,” Dr. Schmitt says.Public Policy PamphletThe analysis, “From Versailles toMunich, 1918-1938,” was issued bythe University of Chicago Press inthe latest of its .series of “publicpolicy pamphlets.” Professor Schmitt,editor of the “Journal of ModernHistory,” and awarded the Pulitzerprize in 1931 for his “The Comingof the War, 1914,” is recognized asan authority on modern Europeanhistory.Debate UnionGets CrockinAs AdvisorEdwin Crockin, graduate studentin Political Science, is now assumingthe duties of assi.stant staff adviserto the Debate Union. Appointed inOctober for the VVTnter and Springquarters, Crockin’s work with theUnion was delayed becau.se he wasnot in residence last quarter.One of the founders of the Union,Crockin al.so helped write its presentconstitution, and has held the officesof secretary and treasurer in the or¬ganization.Roundtable SpecialistThe new adviser specializes inroundtable discussions.

Miller,registrar, announced yesterday. Thisis an increase of approximately 400over last quarter’s total of 6158, al¬though figures for this quarter willprobably be increased by at least 200before registration is completed.The total for students on the Quad¬rangles has reached 5337 paid regis¬trations. Rush Medical College showsan enrollment of 208, and the Down¬town College one of 986.The division of the total figures in¬to graduates and undergraduate stu¬dents is about half and half, the un¬dergraduate body leading in num¬bers by 393. This ratio, however, issubject to change for two moreweeks.Russell Talks forPeace Council TodayBertrand Russel will discuss “HowCan We Meet the Fascist Threat ofWar?” at the first meeting this quar¬ter of the Campus Peace Council atfour o’clock in Eckhart 208.Russell holds the view that thisthreat can be met without resource toviolence. Future meetings of theCouncil will be held at intervals oftwo or three weeks. Only members ofthe Council will be admitted. HenryLuccock. delegate from the Political Union, is chairman of the committeeon speakers.Hitler’s characterization as a mad¬man and a political “accident” mustbe tempered in the light of his ca¬reer, said Dr. Schmitt. In his opinion.Hitler is the shrewdest Europeandiplomat since Bismark.As to the future, Dr. Schmitt re¬fuses to venture a prediction. Onlytime will show whether Adolph Hitlercan succeed where Napoleon Bona¬parte failed. But Germany, Dr. Sch¬mitt points out, enjoys one advan¬tage never vouchsafed to Napoleon.This is the toleration of her ascend¬ancy by Britain, “or at any rate, byMr. Chamberlain.”Second Lord North?“For the first time,” he says,“England has repudiated the balanceof power, and one wonders if Mr.Chamberlain will figure in historyas the Lord North of the 20th cent¬ury.“But here again history sounds awarning. After 1783 British powerseemed as broken and British prestigeas vanished as in 1938. Perhaps anew William Pitt the Younger willrise and galvanize England to life.And France? After every great de¬feat in her history she has exhibitedextraordinary powers of recovery;she may do so again.”Discussing the part of the UnitedStates in the international pictures.Dr. Schmitt says:“Americans should recognize thatour refusal to join the League andto ratify the Franco-American de¬fensive alliance threw France backon her own resources and went far toexplain the building up of France’ssystem of alliances in eastern Europeand her prolonged intransigence inthe matter of reduction of arma¬ments (or rather the recognition ofGerman’s claim to equality).Dr. Schmitt concludes that escapefrom war on the continent is up toGermany and the situation is loadedwith explosive possibilities.ASU Elects BoardAt Next MeetingElection of officers, considerationof some proposed revisions to the of¬ten-changed constitution, and a re¬port of the annual convention are allscheduled at the first membershipmeeting of the ASU to be held to¬morrow at 3:30 in Law North.With this meeting the ExecutiveCommittee also hopes to corral moreactive members into the fold andrevitalize interest in ASU activities.Alec Morin, long prominent in theUnion’s affairs, will deliver the re¬port of the convention held duringthe Christmas holidays at the CityCollege of New York. Seventeen Uni¬versity students attended the conven¬tion.Picket MeetingMembers of the ASU will join un¬ion representatives in a picket linein front of the Stevens Hotel tonightat 6.

Dorothy Davies Replaces AbbottAs Mirror Dance DirectorStudents BeginChamber ChorusAnd OrchestraAs a result of revived campus in¬terest in pre-classical music a groupof students from the music depart¬ment led by Roslyn Brogue, BlancheScholes, and Geraldine Kidd have or¬ganized a chamber chorus and or¬chestra. Their aim is to perform rare¬ly heard compositions of periods pre¬ceding and including the time ofBach.Every Monday from 7 to 9 p. m.,they rehearse in the music building.Their tentative program includes“Cantata 78” by Bach, some Monte¬verdi madrigals, excerpts from Pales¬trina, and selections by Anerio,Praetorius, Schutz, Scarlatti and Al¬binoni.The group is quite informal andarose spontaneously among studentstaking a course in conducting givenby the music department. However,the group is not officially backed bythe department, although the musicfaculty is very interested in their ef¬forts.The students have good reason tofeel that there is a renaissance ofpre-classical music at the University.At the Social Science record concertspre-classical programs have been ex¬ceptionally well attended. In addition,enthusiasm abounds at the weekly re¬hearsals.These Rehearsals are open to anyUniversity student who plays a music¬al instrument or sings. Those inter¬ested in the work the group is doingshould leave their names, addresses,and phone numbers, with the secre¬tary of the music department and at¬tend next Monday’s rehearsal.Refugee CommitteeBegins DriveThe committee planning the organ¬ization of the Refugee Aid Scholar¬ship drive during February startedactive preliminary work yesterday toraise the $10,000 necessary to secureroom and board for ten German stu¬dents and relief for the suffering inChina and Spain.It plans to make the drive largelyan organizational one, intending toreach all fraternities, clubs, publica¬tions, political groups, religious ac¬tivities, departmental clubs, and spe¬cial organizations, and to requestthem to set for themselves as a largequota as they feel possible in orderto insure the success of the move¬ment.Besides the group support whichthe committee is asking the organiza¬tion to set in motion as soon as pos¬sible, it is banking on the success ofseveral tentatively planned open func¬tions, such as speeches by Benes andeither Maurice Hindus or some otherauthority on the refugee problem, anda “Spirituals and Swings” programbeing arranged by Grant Adams.The committee is making a specialpoint in informing the organizationsthat they can prescribe the uses towhich their quota should be put.“Jeremy Bentham’s Political ViewsSurpass Economic Theories’’—Vin^r“Jeremy Bentham’s unusual per¬sonality and his principle of utilitar¬ianism enabled him to achieve severalmajor political reforms in Englandduring his lifetime,” Jacob Viner,professor of Economics stated yester¬day in the first of four lectures deal¬ing with “Political and Social Ideasof the English Classical Economists.”Stating that Bentham’s contribu¬tion to political science was more sig¬nificant than his economic theories,Viner reviewed the principles of theBenthamites, and in particular thoseof their leaders, Jeremy Bentham andJames Mill.Change Utilitarianism“Utilitarianism was not a newprinciple in Bentham’s time,” Vinersaid, “but Bentham and Mill gave it anew meaning. To them, utility wassynonymous with happiness andnnfViinor wnc iisofiil it C'ave happiness.“Bentham also made utility as acriterion by which all social institu¬tions should be judged. Invariably hefound them lacking in something andsuggested that the institutions becither abolished or adjusted.”The personalities of the two lead¬ers, Bentham and Mill, were also un¬usual, Professor Viner stated. Bent¬ham was regarded by many of hiscontemporaries as a fool, by others asa great man. Bentham himself ad¬mitted he was selfish but his actionsrevealed him to be a benevolent andpublic spirited citizen.Both men were opposed to religionwhile Bentham thought that poetryw'as injurious to man. Happiness,they said, was the end of man andthe moral end was the greatest hap¬piness.

TravellingBazaarOur Favorite Horatio Alger BoyBill Leach, who is a Judson fresh¬man, has suddenly meteored to Holly¬wood, despite the fact that he doesn’teven have long eyelashes.Like a full-fledged mogul he flewout there last Tuesday, expenses en¬tirely paid by the studios to assumethe impressive title of Technical Ad¬visor on the picture “Spirit of Cul¬ver’’ currently being manufactured.This sudden falling into the lap ofthe gods comes as just reward for be¬ing company commander with therank of Captain at Culver last year,where he so impressed the militaristswith the air with which he wore hisbrass buttons and his intelligencethat they recommended him for thejob. He’ll be surrounded by glamorand palms and plush for six weeks atthe reputedly staggering sum of $136a week, and should arrive home aboutthe middle of February should he beable to tear himself away from theclimate and the opulence.(Dubious sources whisper it aboutthat he pre-pledged Alpha Belt justbefore he left, which is highly irre¬levant but educational.)What faintly distresses us is thatHollywood has* absent-mindedly ig¬nored the University for .such a longtime. They certainly could make apeachy picture all about Robin HoodHutchins and Adler and McKeon, whocould swashbuckle about to theirhearts content and be a lot more ex¬citing than a lot of South Sea islandnatives; and there certainly areenough funny people like the Ma-rooners around for a little slapstickrelief every so often, to demonstratethe horrible effects of going to aschool that has no football.But we’re not a bit discouraged be¬cause it’s only a matter of time tillthey discover us.The Phi Psi PledgeWe now know for certain that PhiPsi has definite prospect for at leastone pledge who isn’t a legacy.

Despite some men¬tion at the beginning of the course ofan intention to be impartial, the lec¬turers have rarely given a fact with¬out putting a little English on it.There has been a sneer lingeringabove the lecture platform since thefirst day of class, and the diflFerentinstructors merely step behind it andstart to tell us, without recourse toproofs, that everyone else is wrong.Mr. Krueger has been the worstand most persistent offender. He hasspoken on every subject from medie¬val manors to the Federal Reservewith the same sublime self-assuranceand disdain of others’ views: indeed,there is a movement among the stu¬dents to have the name of the coursechanged to “Mr. Krueger’s Opinionson God and the Universe 1.”Now when even the Humanitiessurvey, which makes no claim to be ascience, can be quite impartial on theextremely personal question of beau¬ty, what excu.se is there for the atti¬tude of the social science instructors?JAMES L.

Thepirl was very unhappy about her lackof beauty, and she became so sensi¬tive that her actions were ungainly.No one, try though he may, could feelanything but repulsion for her. Thegirl was very lonesome and longedfor company.One day a young man met her, andho was not repulsed by her ugliness.The girl was very happy, for the boyliked her company very much.A very strange thing happened. Inthe warmth and comfort of herfriendship with the boy, she gradual¬ly changed. Slowly, day by day, inine company of the boy, the girl be¬came beautiful.Her deformities disappeared; shebecame graceful and lovely. A new ,light came into her eyes and a newconfidence in all that she said or did.“How beautiful I am,” she thoughtto herself, “beautiful enough to mar¬ry a king. Why I am finer than anyof my friends.” And, true enough,hhe was finer than any of her friends:she was fit for a king.Gradually she became dissatisfiedwith the boy who was her friend. Shegained so many new acquaintancesthat she saw less and less of him.Some of her new' friends were muchmore beautiful than he—and sheliked being with them more.She met one handsome young manwho was very much attracted to her.She liked him very much and she liked her old friend much less. Soonshe saw no more of him and muchmore of the handsome young man.The handsome fellow thought herbeautiful and said so; he enjoyedwalking with her so that all of hisfriends might see him. And she likedbeing seen and being envied for herbeauty.But again a strange thing hap¬pened. The girl began to lose hercharm. Her beauty faded; ugliness,more hideous than ever, crept uponher again. The handsome young mansaw less and less of her, and laughedat her with his friends.Soon the girl was alone again, justas before, with her ugliness. Shethought of the young man who hadtaken her for what she was, and sherealized that her beauty really washis doing. How strange and rude itmade her feel to know that thisshould happen to her.GEORGE STEINBRECHER.ABSTRACTGreen flashes of monotony in soundOf chromium waves beatOn purple velvet beaches.A red stain blurs the black silenceResting on crinkled white.Glass reflects laughter in lightAnd violet-red bars sweep the air;Of wood splintered into gray.Soft yellow thought on time.Spheres of fire twirl to meet.And mass is dissolved into sleep.W.

The ^Republic''' of PlatoA book entitled the Republic hasrecently come to this reviewer’s desk.It is a large volume, a little too pro¬lix for today perhaps, but your re¬viewer managed to plod thru most ofit, forbidding as it looks.As soon as one opens the covers,one is impressed by the swift-movingdialogue which reminds one of Shaw’searlier work. The dialogue is betweenan old man named Socrates and hisyounger pupils who discuss idealstates and things like that. But don’tget the impression that it has any¬thing of the Sunday-school about it;not at all. The hero, Socrates, oc¬casionally contradicts himself, leavesquestions unanswered, and commitsother slips of logic, but we must re¬member that this was written beforethe development of scientific think¬ing. One does get the impressionthat it’s all a little too idealistic forthese practical times when action,rather than abstract thought, is whatis needed, as Will Durant has so apt¬ly remarked. And again. Science hasdisproved so many of the ideas heregiven, that one must always havereservations in his mind as he perusesthese pages. But, all in all, today’scitizen must take cognizance of theseproblems, and this book is usefultherefore, because it stimulates thereader to do a little independentthinking on these matters. The book-lover may find many of its passageslacking in the freshness that he haslearned to find in more contemporary Ithings, but the Republic does con¬tain some sage maxims, which wewill all do well to ponder.Particularly interesting to us inthis country is the complete miscon¬ception that the early thinkers had ofdem'^racy. Plato, for example,thought that liberty would run so farthat the asses would be marching thesidewalks in freedom! Smile as wewill at these naive ideas, we cannothelp but admire the extent to whichhe did go with his ideas for his time.As a whole, altho the reviewer mustconfess he couldn’t get thru all of this laborious tome, as my readerswill understand when they see thebook, the Republic is a provocativeI book and one that well deservesreading, and even rereading by thosewho are particularly interested inhigh things. In due justice to thereader tho, we must say that in allI frankness, we prefer Margaret Hal¬sey.“TRICKSEY” KEINSINN.LETTER IN AUTUMNNow is the barethe naked season of the year,the dying of all colours and thebrightemerging sunwardof each starred blossomthrough the sharpened light.Here we are caughtbewildered whiletime crumbles to untaughtcruelty, the music lostin ice, our heartsI uncertainimmobile against this frost.Beneath the matted treeswhich bendthus hesitant to earthwe shall walkscuffing the littered leavesfinding an end to mirth;at lastonly the brittle talkbriefly and afterwards the dark.RICHARD ELY MORSE. No. 7Jane did not love John. It madeJohn very sad. He could not forgether. Everything he saw or did hadsomething of her in it: the eveningsunset, a story he had read, the workhe had to do. All these things re¬minded him of Jane. She was withhim in his thoughts during the day,she slipped into his dreams at night.It made John very unhappy be¬cause all that made him think of Janealso reminded him that she did notlove him. Everything he did made himaware of how very far away she was,even when she was near him.This almost drove him mad. Hewould become disconsolate and de¬jected. Then it was hard to hold backthe tears, and many times the ter-lible grief almost overcame him.One day when he felt more dis¬heartened than ever before, he wentto Jane and told her how ter¬rible it was. She took him in her armsand he cried like a child. Jane wasmost unhappy, but she still could notIcve him. John felt this. He knew itwithout her telling him it was so.The qualities that were most preciousand dear to him in her, she could notshare with him. And for the momenthe felt there was no more reason forliving.Suddenly, as he looked at herthrough his tears, she appeared tohim to be a flower. When she smiledat him through his tears, it remindedhim of a sunset, and the sympathetictouch of her hand reminded him ofthe gentle touch of a story he hadread. He smiled.How foolish of him to think thatthe qualities he admired in Jane be¬longed to her alone. They were some¬thing she shared with all the thingshe thought lovely. His love for heralone, was a love that belonged tomany things.Jane did not understand why hissmile became more radiant. But sheknew that something had gone fromher.

After losing to Min¬nesota the preceding Friday, the Ma-1‘oons took the Badgers by a score of28 to 18. The Daily Maroon will al¬ways make a conscientious effort toget the news to you, sooner or later.Dick Lounsbury, Chicago center,captured scoring honors with tenpoints on five field goals. Joe Stampfand Chet Murphy scored nine and sixpoints respectively. The most impor¬tant piece of information about scor¬ing is the saga of Wisconsin’s failureto score. The boys in red scored two(Arabic—2) field goals in each half.That as you will see, makes a totalof four. This collection of markerswas harvested as a result of seventy-three (73) attempts to score. Like anoracle’s prophecy, this calls for noth¬ing but negative comment.The game was fairly even in thefirst half, the period ending withNorgren’s boys holding an eleven toten lead. They pulled away’ at thestart of the second half, building upa ten point advantage which was heldto the gun. A bright spot in the Ma¬roon lineup was the presence at for¬ward of Captain Bob Cassels, in hissecond appearance of tha season. An¬other feature of the contest was theimprovement in the free throw aver¬age of the Chicago team. They con¬nected with eight of fourteen giftshots to improve on their miserableshowing in this respect against Min¬nesota.
