"If there is any religious institution
that reprobates any man by calling
him an infidel for doubting, it has
misconceived the history and essence
of religion," said Dr:' Louis Wolsey,
of Cleveland, 0., speaking on the:sub-
ject "Religion and Honest Doubt" at
the Union services in Hill auditorium
Sunday evening.
"There - lanoreligiousdisciple or
teacher who has not, doubted. The
trouble with doubt is fhat it does not
always think its way through to its
conclusion. We should approach re-
ligion with an earnest desire to find
the truth."

to the effect that a formal dance would

To insure the fihancial success of

Minor Reservations Brought to Agree-
able Termination by Committee;
Strike Big Question




Speaking in a manner that brought
forth a,hearty response from the au-
dience at every other sentence, Steph-
en .Leacock, having as a subjectl
"Frenzied Fiction," told last night in
Hill auditoriumy the four types of he-
4ioes and heroines that have ruled in
the world of fiction.
Four Typesof Heroes
The incarnation of the first type
was Ned. An overworked hero always
performed the impossible. No wom-:
an had entered into fiction yet or it
she did it would be on the last page
of the book where Ned mould marry
and settle down for life.
After a time, though, according to
the humorist, this type lost its favor
and the Victorian sweet, Innocent and
"fragile" young girl, together with
the villian knight and the young hero,
who always conquered the latter, held
sway. In the latter part of the nine-
teenth century, however, the back-
ground for the hero and heroine
changed to the Rocky mountains of
the west.
Final Type Found Today
The final type that may be found to-
day as the "made to order" kind of
characters that are in most all mod-
ern magazine stories, is the clean
shaven, Tuxedoed lounger, whose
breath (up to a few days ago) gave
forth the fumes of liquor. He al-
ways was the husband of the other
woman, while his co-actor, the hero-
ine, was the wife of the other man.
The latter must be well groomed and
well gowned.

Two musical skits are also on the

"I am firmly set against the idea of
a person working and going to col-
lege at the same time," Stephen Lea-
cock said to a Daily reporter last
"A man working his way through
school," the humorist continued, "must
necessarily deprive himself of recrea-'
tional and educational advantages,
such as going to shows,*concerts, lec-
tures, and being able to purchase
books and magazines, which would
give him a cultural view of life. He
not only is not able to spend money
for these things but he hasn't the
time to enjoy them. A person from
19 to 22 who must earn part of this
way through school had better stay

out of college a couple of years and
lay by enough mney, so that.he would
not have to work and could enjoy
these things when he did go to school."
Mr. Leacock also Mtated that the
college literary magazine ws an ex-
cellent 4means for developing literaryl
talent, and if it could not support it-
self, should be given financial aid by
its Achool.
When questioned about the report;
that Americans would lose to a great'
extent their sense of humor because
of prohibition, Mr. Leacock said that
as the country had only been really
dry foa' three days no greatchange had
so far been noted, but that in 15
years the average Yankee would
probably be cold and unemotional'.

Washington, Jan. 19.-Replying to
charggs made by Hector M. Holmes of
Boston that the deportation of some
of the radicals aboard the steamship
Bufort was "brutal," Secretary of La-
bor Wilson. declared in a statement
onight that although the expulsion ofj
thousands of aliens each year cannot
be accomplished without some suffer-
ing, both to the deported and their'
families, he had not heard of any spe-
cific cases of brutality in the Bufort
Secretary Wilson said it should be
realized that statutes which exclu-
sively require deportation of aliens do
not take family suffering itno accoulit
any more than penal lawsdo.

Washington, Jan. 19.-Raymond B.
Fosdick, under secretary general of

representative in the league machin'

dick's friends say that inasmuch as
the league has not been accepted by
the United States he did not feel he
could continue. Mr. Fosdick an-
nounced his resignation in a cable-
gram to Sir Eric Drummond, secre-
tary general.
