To the Editor: I
In looking over your editorial of
March 2nd, I cannot help but call your
attention to what I consider pure Anti
Saloon League propaganda. You say
that in the dry census undertaken by
the Christian Science Monitor, cover-
ing a total membership of 13,500,000,t
t was discovered that approximately
100,000 members are not in sympathy
with the present prohibition law. It
's generally considered that the Christ-
ian Science Monitor is one of the dry-
'st papers in the United States, and it
s fair to assume that under the cir-
cumstances it would not seek an ex-!
pression of public sentiment anywhere
unless it knew in advance that the re-
lults were going to be favorable to
their general policy.
A more authentic expression can be
obtained by the Literary Digest poll
of 10 million votes, taken in 1922, I
which showed that 63 per cent of the
voters were in favor of either modi-
fication or total repeal and 32 per centl
in favor of total prohibition and strict
There is one important feature that
should be given consideration by those
who write editorials on the prohibi-
tion question. The saloon has been
the question in the past. There is no
need for saloons, nor yet for hard
liquor for beverage purposes, but there
is a great demand the country over
for a palatable stimulating beverage
containing a limited amount of alco-
hol which would in truth and In fact
not be intoxicating. The permitted
use of a beverage of this kind would,
I believe, do more for the cause of,
true temperance than all the legisla-
tion at present on the books. I am
convinced that it would reduce the de-
mand for the present day concoctions,
completely put out of business the 1
bootlegger and blind pig operator
which have developed a greater crime
wave than the saloon and hard liquoi
I call your attention to these facts
not for the purpose of criticising, but
trusting that in the future your edi-
torials will be fair with our organiza-
tion of patriotic citizens who believe
that this question should be taken out
of the hands of the federal government
and left to the several states to handle
in their own way. We also believe that
a sane modification would produce an
enormous sum in taxes, relieve the
rural communities of their immense
burden, bring about a more wholesomie
respect for the law, all of which will
work for the bnefit of a temperate

PASTIME FOR PROFESSORS
A recent issue of the Amherst Grad-
iates' Quarterly contains a strikingf
picture of President Coolidge as a sen-
ior in college, and an article about
the President's undergraduate days
which states that .He was not con-
sidered brilliant by the faculty."

CAESAR AND THE GLA)DIA'Olt
(Cornell Daily Sun)
Greece, in her days of greatest de-I
mocracy, extolled the athlete and ele-
vated him to a pedestal of national
heroism; England and her lovers of
sport have built a democratic govern-
ment; America, ruled by the people;
leads the world as a champion of ath-
letics, These instances tend to give
weight to the words of Prof. F. H.
Yost, Director of Athletics at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, when, at a recent
convention of football coaches, he de-
clared: "It is interesting to note that
nations have succeeded in democratic
government in almost exact propor-
tion to their participation in competi-
tive games and athletics."
Mr. Yost explains this situation with
general observations on the qualities
of self-control, cooperation, and re-
spect for opposition inculcated by
competitive athletics. He believes that
sportsmanship has made a large con-
tribution to the world's political think-
ng, and that growing understanding
of true sportsmanship, brought out by
widespread participation in athletics.
must be reflected in fairer modes of I
national and international politics.
Without doubt, competitive sports'
play an important and valuable part
in the development of a sense of fair- i
ness, and are conducive to a whole-
some national character. But when
the sucess of democracies is attribu-
ted to athletics, Caesar's due is given
to the gladiator. A government of ath-
letics, or those disposed towards sports
would be a sorry institution, unless,
perchance, the people were learned in
the more serious pursuits of life. We
make no effort to preclude the idea I
that the sportsman may possess su-
perior education, but intellectual ad-
vancement is the sina qua non of a
Mr. Yost seems to have made the
the mistake of confusing cause and re-
sult. Only in those countries where
individual freedom has made possibleI
prosperity and attendant leisure, can
the people afford the luxury of athletic l
