WHO WANTS ETERNAL LIFE?
according to the Detroit Daily Times, Dr. Eu-
e Lyman Fiske, a biologist of note, has come
ward in an article for the Yale Review in which
claims that before long human life will be pro-
ged 'to a two thousaid year span.
n disposing of the problems introduced by such
gevity, the good Dr. Fiske shows tremendous
igiative powers. Hie would control the birth-
e by determbiningsex; put the surplus of popula-
a to death by lot; and when the numbers become
large to be disposed of in this way, he would
pose of the extras by shooting them to other
nets in specially constructed torpedoes. Any
'rsupply of females would be overcome in the
l by a wholesale slaughter, because, the Doctor
vely explains, their biological value would be at
end. Perhaps Doctor Fiske believes that woman,
money, is the root of all evil and that she is
rated solely because she is necessary for the
petuation of the species.
?ossibly the reporter who wrote up the story and
interview had just had a shot of hop and mis-
ted right and left. .Perhaps we are hopelessly
ctionary and iconoclastic toward scientific spec-
tion of the unshackled variety here exhibited. At
- rate we wish to go on record here and now as
:ing that we do not want to live for two thousand
.rs, we don't want to exist so long that all of o r
sions are destroyed, and we hate to contemplate
possibility 6f'an exclusively nasculine world..
lere's hoping for death before eternal life ap-
rs upon this mortal sphere.
THE FEMALE FIGHT FAN
tev. Dr. John RoachStraton, pastor of the Cal-
y Baptist church of New York City, is evi-
tly a member of that Puritanically-minded order
ch has been responsible for the "blue laws" agh
on. And the Reverend Doctor has lately re-
red a shock which bids fair to be the worst of
career. Women have attended a prize fight in
v York City. Think of it. Have' really been
sent at a prize fight, and what is even more
-niing and degrading, have allowed their names
> affixed to statements appearing in "the public
its" actually glorifying the spectacle which they
nd Dr. Straton bewails this freedom which is
ig exercised by the women of New York as "a
'ible thing." One can well imagine the gentle-
i when news of the dastardly affair was brought
is attention. Doubtless he hs never been pres-
at a prize-fight.. One would be surprised to find
: he had ever witnessed a boxing match, and
id believe him to be the sort who would raise
hands in horror at the spectacle of two urchins
:he street fighting out their battles at fisticuffs,
afterwards being as good or better friends than
ust why should prize fighting be forced to re-.
n without the pale of decent sport? Certainly
e is no art which is more manly than that of ac-
'ing the ability to defend oneself at boxing, 7,d
the mere fact that prize fights.are boxing matches
held for money should not render them so very
much' different from matches staged merely for
glory and honor.
During the war, boxing was held to be one. of
the most important phases of the training of each
recruit, and considerable spirit and feeling was
aroused among the different contingents through
boxing matches which were held.
The war changed many things. Can we clot be-
lieve that it may have brought forth a higher stand-
ard in womanhood, the long-heralded, New Woman,
the girl who would glory with the man in his
triumphs, physical as well as mental, and whose
mind would be above seeking the -only element in
the prize fight which Dr. Straton sees, that she was
watching "two practieylly naked men battering and
bruising each other."
NEEDED: AN ART COMBINE
Although there is at Michigan no separate art
school where one may receive instruction in actual
painting ad drawing and also take tip the study of
art works from an appreciate and constructive view-
point, we have courses in both the literary and en-
gineering colleges which, if combined, would form a
department which might be of high ultimate benefit
to all students interested either directly or indirectly
in art work.
In the literary college we have classes in fine
arts under Professor Cross which have always been
recognized for their value in giving tie student a
better knowledge of the fundamental characteris-
tics of the art of the past and present. In the arch-
itecture college we have a series of subjects offered
to architects and lits alike, which teach free-hand
and architectural drawing and painting, and mod-
eling as well. In the former department we can
develop 'our appreciation of the fine things in all
types of art; we can, by following up the short
list of subjects offered therein, learn much of
the basic standards of drawing, painting, and sculp-
ture. On the other hand, a knowledge of the actual
technique of the work itself can be gained only
from such viork as that offered in the college of
These types of courses go hand in hand. A com-
bination of the two into a single department of fine
arts would not be an art school, but it would be a
long step in the right direction and should not only
do much toward increasing the sense of artistic a-
preciation among the students but would make it
more attractive for students to come here and pur-
sue a course in art study and practice along with
their other college work.
The suggestion is not an impracticable one and
should not make necessary any great amount of re-
construction. If such a department were organ-
ized it would be a sound basis upon which a school
of art might finally be built up.
Dr. George Callen, a phylogenist of Brooklyn,
now gives us the statement that the site of the
Garden of Eden w, in Ohio. All of which must
be a blow .to every enraptured native son of the
Golden Poppy state.

How to Be the Life of the Party
The purpose of these lessons is to enable a man
to acquit himself creditably not only in the draw-
ing room but wherever he may chance to be. Thus
the following lesson is intended primarily for the
dinner table. A
It may thus be 'that you do not find the biscuit,
for instance, to your liking. Haling told the
boarding-house keeper so, she may reply a little
"Young enan, I want you to know I made these
biscuits before you were born."
At her words allow the doubt and bewilderment
to vanish from your face and reply in the tone of
on on whom enlightenment has suddenly dawned:
"Well, wl, that explains the whole thing."
Then as the thunderous applause of the rest of
the boarders becomes a deafening din, suddenly
pull from your pocket a silk handkerchief and del.-
icately blow your nose. (The situation by this time
is pretty delicate so this will simply mean acting
When somebody, finally notices about the hand-
kerchief, remark in an offhand.manner that it cost
you $3.00. And then when the star boarder greets
this announcement with the comment that that's a
lot of money to pay for a handkerchief, reply non-
"You're right; that's really a lot of money to
And after that all you have to do is to make some
remark about the weather and you can be assured
of a hearty guffaw.

Scientists long studied the "effect" but they could not explain
it satisfactorily. Now, after years of experimenting with' Crookes
tubes, X-ray tubes and radium, it is known that the current that
leaps across is a stream of "electrons"- exceedingly minute particles
negatively charged with electricity.
These electrons play an important part in wireless communica-
tion. When a wire grid is interposed between the filament and the
plate and charged positively, the plate is aided in drawing elec'trons
across; but when the grid is charged negatively it drives back the elec-
trons. A very small charge applied to the grid, as small' as that ae-
' ceived from a feeble wireless wave, is enough to vary the electron
So the grid in the tube enables a faint wireless impulse to controf
the very much greater amount of energy in the flow of electrons, and
so radio signals too weak to be perceived by other means become per-
ceptible by the effects that they produce. Just as the movement of
a throttle controls a great locomotive in motion, so a wireless wave,
by means of the grid, affects the powerful electron stream.
All this followed from studying the mysterious "Edison effect"-
a purely scientific discovery.
No one can foresee what results will follow from research in pure
. science. Sooner or later the world must benefit practically from the
discovery of new facts.
For this reason the Research Laboratories of the General Electric
Company are concerned as much with investigations in pure science
as they are with the improvement of industrial processes and products.
They, too, have studied the "Edison effect " scientifically. The result
has been a new form of electron tube, known as the "pliotron", a type
of X-ray tube free from the vagaries of the old tube; and the "kene-
tron", which is called by electrical engineers a "rectifier" because it
has the property of changing an alternating into a direct current.
All these improvements followed because the Research Labora-
tories try to discover the "how" of things. Pure science always
