After completing their tour of overs
thirty American colleges, the Euro-
pean students, some of whom visited
here several months ago, have made
some interesting observations on our
academic life.
Perhaps the most significant o
these was made by the English rep-
resentative concerning the importance
which undergraduate ,activities con-,
mand in this country. Saying that

The preliminary skirmishes of the
freshman-sophomore; picture war are
anything but encouraging to those ;t
optimistic souls who would see sincer-
ity in the dual purpose of the lower
clp sses to preserve the institution for
the future and to establish for them-E
selves a reputation of good sense and
moderation. The persistent violations,
of the explicit rules laid down by;
Palaeopitus give at least a suggestion
that the sophomore class is not anxi-
ous to go through with the fight; and
the freshman by'an amazing display
of poor judgment vitiate the moral
advantage that was theirs through
stricter adherence to the rules. The
whole procedure, childish in the ex-
treme, lends added color to an im-
pression steadily becoming current
that the fight is a nuisance anyway,
and had best be abolished. The fresh-
man and sophomores have done more
in the past two days to strengthe
this impression than could be accom-
plished in a year by bored upper-class
Whatever the outcome today, a dis-
tinct shadow has b en cast over the
whole affair that cannot help having
a serious effect on the future of thej
custom. To those who have long
argued against the picture this will be
the crowning touch, and they can be
expected now to press more aggres-
sively for its abolition. Breaking fur-
niture after getting in dormitory
rooms by forcing the locks, spiritingI

they are. We do think highly of
getting a settlement on money which
other nations borrowed from us.
If the American government will
not relinquish its claim for Rhine ex-
penses it at least can assert its free-
(loin to deal with Germany without
the intervention of any other country
and without passing the payments
through the reparations commission.
If this is our affair with Germany
it is ours alone. If we intend to in-
sist upon this debt, and only this one,
letting the French debt, the Italian
debt, etc., go slide, then let's have the
debtor in without asking the consent
of other governments and without ty-
ing ourselves up in any of their en-

There is, to some extent, a dis-
tortion of purpose brought about by
1 diverting interests but hardly so great
that it hinders the development of
the student. Whatever distinction is
gained through campus activities is
unquestionably the immediate resultt
of development in one direction ort
another, and why should this be en-
tirely in academic lines rather than
those in which it sometimes happens.
There is no reason why under oura
present system of undergraduate ac-
tivities the educational value of
American colleges should be any low-I

(Philadelphia Public Ledger)
Beginning in a modest way, Penn-
sylvania is to have an old age pension
system, the third State in the Union
to adopt this kindly form of legis-
When Governor Pinchot signed the
bill creating the Pension Commission
a motion picture was completed which
shows every stage of the law through

to which the motion picture is being,
put with increasing frequency and
The old age pension, as it will be
exemplified here, is not a scheme forE
the pauperization of the poor. Rather,
it is in line with the excellent Moth-
ers' Assistance Fund, which helps
keep families together. The aged pen-
sioners will receive not more than a
dollar a (lay; less than this if they
have any income of their ;own. It is
the purpose of the law to make it
possible for old men and women past
seventy years of age and incapable
of supporting themselves to live in
modest sufficiency at home, instead of
in institutions as wards of the State.
It is always a melancholy sight to
see an aged husband and wife, who'
have spent perhaps fifty years to-
gether, sundered by poverty in the
last years of their lives, as they
must be if they go to "the poorhouse."
By and large, couples who have reach-
ed the age of seventy years together
deserve the brief bounty of the State
for the days that are left to them. If,
only to save the tears of parting shed
by these dim old eyes, the Pension
Fund will be worth all it costs to the
taxpayers of Pennsylvania.
