well. "History is philosophy teaching by example."
A 'knowledge of the past is indispensible to the cor-
reet and skillful handling of modern problems. But
the student does not carry his curiosity quite far
enough, seemingly indifferent to the fact that the
events of today make the history of tomorrow. We
cannot do justice to ourselves, our community, or
our country if we live our lives from day to day ob-
livious of all the great forces at work. Laboring un-
der the fallacious theory that a knowledge of yester-
day will be sufficient to cope with the problems of
today, many a brilliant man will be out-distanced.
American citizens classify themselves naturally
under two categories, the potent and the impotent.
The potent forces are those enterprising, self-re-
liant, resourceful citizens who through their knowl-
edge of present day life are naturally fitted to vie
with the best economically, politically, and socially.
It is this force which becomes representative of a
nation. The impotent factor is that timid, submis-
sive, non-resisting class which cannot possibly serve
either community or country in its need because of
its very incapacity and its inability to comprehend
and act rationally upon present day problems of
moment or consequence. We must not become a
member of this latter class due to our own apathetic
attitude. We must take every opportunity to be-
come well-versed in current history, and hence bet-
ter American citzens. A slight effort on our part
may spell the difference between progress and ret-

Just as there are a thousand ane one avenues of
expenditures in which our money can either be
wasted or put to advantage, there are all kinds of
ways to use our time. Many a student fails to keept
track of his finances and more often than not is in-
cined to throw dollars to the winds, practically re-
gardless of consequences. And the same student,
along with a host of his fellows, often handles his
allowance of time with the same lack of discrim-
Notice the young man who enters the library,
book in hand, and seats himself with a rather lan-
guid intention to work. He opens his book, wipes
his glasses, pulls a paper from his pocket, and spends
a few moments glancing over it; he looks through
his assignment to see how many pages he has to
cover; he reads, glancing up every time anyone en-
ters the room; he gazes indefinitely and uncompre-
hendingly at the book before him, turning the pages
automatically ; and eventually he pulls out his watch,
closes the volume with a snap, and departs with ar
clear conscience. His work is done ; he has spent an
hour with the assignment before him.
"Genius," it has, well been said, "is nine-tenths the
capacity for work," and certainly the average col-
lege student needs some such definition, some basis
on which to ground himself in seeking the ultimate
attainment of the capacity which makes for suc-
cess. An hour spent in leisurely dreaming over the
pages 'of an ,open 'textbook does not mean that an
hour has been spent to good advantage. It is only
the time we give to earnest concentration that does
us any real good; and that sort of work means,
first of all, a definite interest in the subject at hand
coupled with a desire to improve' our knowledge ,of
it, and secondly, 'a willingness to devote some real
time and effort toward the securing of that knowl-
edge. Why not make "an hour's work" mean some-

Dear Noah:
Who is the originator of the song, "There'll Be a
Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight"?
Pen Elope.
If we remember our Roman history correctly, it
was Nero who composed this famous 'song.

Swiss insurance companies charging higher pre-
miums for life insurance on girls who wear sort

"And do you know, Jack, lots of people tell n.e
that I look just like my father; that my eyes are ex-

manner,; "you might even say you're pop-eyed, eh?
