Having suffered for years with so-

wonders if that bane of undergraduate

Evidently, the University Senate thinks

Throughout all their adventures, the
intrepid Rovers had faced no such
problem as now faced them. How to
eat the exquisite boiled asparagus,
for which Silas Marner had provided
them no fork, was the thought upper-
most in each mind as they gazed long-"
ingly at the tempting repast spread be-
fore-them. Suddenly Prof. Snodgrass
"We are saved" he exulted. "These
are not asparagus butts, but the fam-
ots Mexican papicus tamalius, better
known as the tongue scorcher, which
bears a great semblance to the Ameri-
can weed."
"But" put in Sam, "are you sure it
is proper to eat them with the fingers."
"My dear boy," suavely answered
the Professor, "the Mexican natives
do nothhig' else."
Promptly the captives set upon the
choice morsels.
"How succulent" thought Dick as
he munched a delicious tip.

ting out a stray seed.

Meanwhile, Alcibiades Rover made
futile attempts to edge in toward the

sat down on a nail keg. fminally the
last of the edibles disappeared.
"My dear sons," Alcibiades stroked

Snodgrass, are faced by a critical sit-

dalusca are this momet .fiendishly

This is to be part of a new program
to make the Rolls educational as well
as frightfully entertaining. The idea,
we confess, is an old one, having been
used with telling effect by Henty, who
wrote the Henty looks, as well as
other famous fellows. The idea is
to give a little piece of history pleas-

antly mixed with a thrilling narative.
so that the young folks read it for the

ingenious, isn't it?
Louis XIV was playing billiards'
with his favorite opponent, the Duc
de Lisle. Lisle was about two points
behind when suddenly the King missed
and left the balls in the corner.
Bending down over the table, Lisle
aimed once more, fiddled long shot-
and miscued. "Confound it!" he said
in an aggravated voice. "Your shot,
The King chalked up and ran seven,
leaving the balls in opposite corners
of the table. "Try and make one," he
smiled genialy at his courier.
Lisle, with a beautiful round tlable
shot, neatly gathered the spheroids
in one corner. "Laugh that off, Louie,"
he rallied. And he proceeded to click
off seven points, shooting perfect bil-
liards. lie missed an easy one on the
eighth leaving the balls together. The

Rental or a box at the Ithaca post-
of'ice,rdissemination of radical litera-
ture and frequent fu~ry crosses onI
neighboring hill tops are seemingly'l
substantial evidences of either the
rapid formation or existence of a
local Ku Klux Klan. Whether Sat- I
urday evening's performance on the
Library slope was an actual ceremon-
ial of the Klan, or merely a burlesque
on the part of students, with the Klan(
as the object of thir ridicule cannot
be stated with any certainty. Unfor-
tunately the large amount of Klan
literature at the base of the cross,
however, would seem to indicate aj
more or less serious motive on the
part of the perpetrators.
Cornell apparently has kept off the
the beaten path of these ignominious
twentieth century Crusadors Ylith theirj
splendidly stated ideals, which, when
put into practice result in murder,"
rapine and crimes too horrible to
enumerate. The possiblity of their
being received within the walls of
the University slould be greeted by
general alarm. The disgrace accruing-
to names of colleges and universities
throughout the country which have
been unable to cut away this ulcerous
growth sounds a warning to be heeded
well by Cornell.
We find the following statement in'
a booklet distributed by local agents
of the Klan. "This is a white man's
organization; this is a gentile organ-"
ization; it is an American organiza-
tion; it is a Protestant organization."
Each one of these ideals, so-called, is
aimed at a substantial part of the
country's population, while the total
number of these various classes makes
up approximately 40 per cent of the
population of the United States. Any
society which aims at the suppression
of these classes by what it deems to
be a higher type of American can
hardly claim the right to call itself
an American organization. The prin-
ciples of the Klan are built on pre-
judices; its methods savour of the
Middle Ages, and where therte' isi need'
of better law enforcement, legitimate
reform is prop r.

There is room and need for capable men
in all the allied activities of big business.
But nowhere is there greater need or greater
opportunity than in that very essential
service to all business - Insurance (Fire,
Marine and Casualty).
Insurance, as a profession, affords con-
tact with the most vital activities of the
commercial and industrial world. k
The Insurance Company of North
America, the oldest American Fire and
Marine Insurance Company, has been an
integral part of big business since 1792 and
the earliest beginning of national affairs.
Out of this long experience it urges those
who are about to choose a calling to con-
sider the world-wide influence of the
insurance field.
