is the face, but intrigue the heart of
the situation. Great novelties in set-

features of the production. The scene
shifts to New York for part of the
time, and here, too, lavish settings
are seen. Rod La Rocque is Miss Mur-

is also supported by Robert Frazer,

Habits Of Li

"Man must begin to change his
habits if he is to escape the fate which
has overcome so many great groups of
animals in the past," declared Russel
C. Hussey of! the geology department,I
yesterday. "In a sense, man has his
own fate in his hands today, and yet
he is deliberatelyatinkering with the
mechanism of life in a manner that is
absolutely startling."
Age upon age, he say, the worldl

has seen group after group of animals
dominate life and enjoy complete mas-
tery of its environment. Then through
some seemingly inexplicable circum-
stance the species has been wiped'
from the earth. In studying the prob-
lem~s of evolution, the paleontologist
is in an unusually favorable position,
with the possibility of tracing the
development and progress of animals
through a period embracing millions'
of years. It is proven from this study

that just as there is an individual old
age, there is a racial old age, and when
a group of animals reaches the stage
of racial old age its ultimate .fatie is
certain.
"Natural selection," he concluded,
"has been on of the. great forces in
evolution, and has constantly weeded
out the unfit from the fit; and although
jit has been a very wasteful process it
has, in general, made progress, for
only by the survival of the fittest can
we hope for improvement. Today we
deliberately allow the unfit to survive
and: propogate, while the birth rate
among the higher classes is constant-
ly decreasing.
