The American Scholar, Phi Beta

Hans Simon, dean of the grad
uate faculty of the New School
for Social Research in New York,
discusses the German army’s role
in the accomplishment of world
^-„peace. In his opinion, “the only
civilian group sufficiently united
in work and leisure and active

Government Jobs
The problem of training for po
sitions in government and civil
offices is handled by Gilbert
Highet, writing on “The Ameri
can Student as I See Him.”
America’s “comic demigods,”
such as Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill,
Mike Fink, and Davy Crockett,
are discussed as a twentieth cen
tury phenomenon by Richard M.
Dorson. “Some observers will re

cated newspapers had poisoned
the ancient channels of legend
and folk story and lessened his
chance for sedate epic glory. Still,
if twentieth-century conditions
offer new parallels to the heroic
age, precedent affirms at least
the possibility that the hero
clown of American popular song
and story may, like Samson and
Heracles and Kullervo, acquire
dignity in serious literature.”
Nazi Revolution
Amos J. Peaslee, international
ly known lawyer, writing on
“World Government Today and
Tomorrow,” declares that “Ger
many’s war is a revolution—a
civil war—against world gov
ernment as we know it.” Sooner
or later, he predicts, the predom
inant might of the civilized na
tions of the world will be swung
“to enforce the cardinal concept
that there is • a right to live at
peace with, and to be free fi*om
brutal attacks by, other nations.”
Daniel Gregory Mason, compo
ser and critic, takes a swat at
“prima donna conductors” and
the public that tolerates them,
in his “Dictator Conductors.”
Both the political dictators
and the dictator conductors, he
argues, develop to an excessive
mechanical perfection their re
spective means, political or ar
tistic, while prostituting the ends
which alone can give these means
value. *
“Both the dictator conductors
and the political dictators,” he be
lieves, “underrate the intelligence
of colleagues far excelling them
in public service, with effects dis
astrous to their dupes and often
in the long run to themselves.”
Finally, he sees even a physical
resemblance between the strut
