Russia Has Lost 22,000,000
In Revolution, Says Sorokine

Problems Of Fraternities And Extra
Curricnlar Activities To
Be Discussed

"Revolution tends to diminish the,
population, diminish the birth rate,
and increase mortality," said Prof.
Pitirime A. Sorokine, noted Russian
student of revolutions and sociology,
in the last of a series of three lectures
yesterday afternoon in Newberry aud-
itorium. His subject was "The Influ-
ence of Revolution on the Biologic
Composition of the Population, and Its
Vital Processes."
"The de-populating effects of war,
and revolution accompanied by civil
war, may be well seen in Russia," he
said. "The population of Russia has
been decreased by 22,000,000 since the
beginning of the World war. This de-
crease is due to death, both from nat-
ural and outside causes, a decreasing
birth rate, and a great migration from
he country."
Professor Sorokine then gave a brief
review of the world's revolutions since
the days of early Rome. He spent
considerable time in dealing with the
French revolutions and the effect

which, he claims, had a disastrous
effect upon France as a whole.
"Ifcivil war accompanies revol-
ution," he continued, "the marriage
rates goes down. But if there is no civ-
il war, and especially if conditions are
better for married people than for un-
married people, the marriage rate will
tend to go up. In Petrograd the mar-
riage rate has reached as high as 27
marriages to every thousand male in-
Then taking up the subject of birth
and death rates, Professor Sorokine
said, "I prefer a country with a high
birth rate and a high rate of mortal-
ity to one of a low birth rate and low
rate of mortality; for, from a stand-
point of eugenics, it is desirable to
have the process of selection going
on as rapid a rate as possible."
"Revolution leads to political emi-
gration, to the depopulation of the best
elements of the nation," he said. "The
loss of men is always great, especially
among the thinking men and the real

Problems of all sorts which now
confront the college and university
deans of this country were discussed
at the opening sessions of the sixth
annual conference of deans and advis-
ers of men which began here yester-
day. Meeting were held both in the
morning and the afternoon at the Un-
ion and talks on various subjects vere
given by different deans. The con-
ference will continue today and to-
At the morning meeting, Deans S.
H. Goonight of Wisconsin and Thom-
as A. Clark of Illinois were the prin-
cipal speakers. In telling "How a
Dean of Men can best serve the Uni-
versity and what the principal and
typical functions of a Dean of Men
are", Dean Goodnight dealt with the
history of such an office, telling of
their need and of the place a dean of
today fills in campus life.
Perosnal Contact Needed
Following this, Dea.n Clark spoke
on the subject "How can Deans of
Ment-come in closepersonalecontact
with the students of the University??"
It is without doubt truethat the
smaller college has th'e advantage over
the larger institutions in this respect,"
said Dean Clark. "When the total
enrollment does not exceed 300 stu-
dents, or even more, it is easily possi-
ble for the deans to make closer per-
gonal friends of the students, and to
be able to call most pf them by their
first flames.
But the problem today With the
tremendu srisze f the. clleges, tles 9
an entirely different aspect, he con-
tinued. "The lack, of. persoi co -
tatehas -been th cause to a great, de-
gree of the large number of failures,
and I h'ay.noticed that their situation
is being greatly improved, and to a
certain extent, I attribute it to the
closer relation which is being built
up between faculty and student." r
Effijiger Welcomes
On account of the illness of Presi-
(lent Marion L. Burton who was sched-
uled to give the address of welcome.
Dean John R. Effinger acted in that
capacity and at the opening of the
afternoon session expressed his pleas-
ure and the pleasure of the University
on having the deans here for their
conference. Dean Edward E. Nichol-
,on of Minnesota, secretary of the con-
ference, replied for the visiting deans.
A discussion followed at which time
problems brought up ldy Dean Clark
in the morning session were consid-
ered. How the dean of men may be-
come acUinted. with stdents - who.
are not In activities and are copar-
atively little known on the campus
as one of :the princapl points of
which the conference talked. Dean
Clark pointed out that his office wa
able to keep' in touc with this type
of student somewhat through the
churches, hospitals, and also by en-
couraging personal conferences.
Discus Vocatios
Dean Francis E. Bradshaw of North
Carolina then spoke on "Vocational
guidance, employment work and other
forms of personnel service-I-ow
much has a student a right to expect?"
He explained the system which is be-
ing tried at North Carolina wh'ereby
state surveys in vocations are made, a
library book-shelf of vocations kept,
and an effort made to aid students in
self-analysis and determine for what
vocation they are fitted. He pointed
out that he as surprised and gratifi-
ed at the cooperation of the faculty
and explained that there is no drive
conducted to make the students use
the bureau. "We are also making an
effort to follow ip to find the results
from alumni", .he added.
The North Carolina dean expressed
the opinib that the student has a
right to expect all the personnel work
which is worth' giving and that the
dean has a general point of view
which is valuable for this work.
All Deans Discuss
Following his talk, was a long dis-
cussion of this subject in which a
large number of delegates took part.
Many were of the opinion that this
work should become one of the fun-
ctions of this office while others said

that it should be given over to special
departsments of experts, such as to

in the senate in the tax reduction figh
with the Mellon incomes tax rates be
ing given the most attention.
The intention of Republican organ
ization leaders to stand by the trea
sury schedule was indicated in the op
position speech by Chairman Smoot o
the finance committee who -vigorousl
defended the rates. Senator Jones o
New Mexico, a Democratic member o
the committee, retaliated with a de
nunciation of the proposed 50 percen
cut in the maximum surtax and a plea
for greater tax reduction even thai
proposed by the treasury.
The Revenue bill, over which th
most extended and contraversal leg
islation fight of the session is anti
cipated, was brought up under In
auspicious circumstances. Despite th'

tors were on the floor throughou
their addresses. Twice a point of ni
quroum was made to draw an audi
ence but shortly: after the roll call
most of the senators tired by the lon
debate of yesterday on the Bonus bill
had retired.
In reply to Mr. Smoots defense' o
the Mellon rates, which would. cut th
maximnum surtax from n0 petent t
25 percent, Senator Jones called at
