Student Laundry '
Brings Revenue
To Post Office
Laundry bags form the majority of
the mail at the campus substation of
the post office, according to an article
in a recent issue of the United States
"Postal Guide." This substation does,
an annual business of over $100,000,
most of this during the school year.
Uncle Sam's laundry business has
been gaining by large strides in re-
cent years. The centers of the laun-
dry box trade are the university com-
munities of the country. Students evi-
dently find it cheaper and quicker to
send their laundry home each week at
the average cost of five and six cents
each way.

And ' ' SS O CS

By William T. Carpenter, Major Coast
Artillery Corps and Professor of
Military Science and Tactics.
Our present military policy has de-
veloped by a slow process of evolu-
tion and is a direct result of the late
World War. Prior to this war our
people took little interest in military
matiers and failed to realize the ne-
cessity for preparedness. Not until
1916 did we make any serious move
to set our house in order and adopt
anything that resembled a rationalI
plan for national defense. In that
year Congress passed the National
Defense Act which federalized the Na-
tional Guard and provided for an Ol-
cers' Reserve Corps and an Enlistedi

in the actual service of the United
States. Besides providing an effective
military force for use in minor em,,r-
gencies within the continental limits
of the United States, it fuirnishes an
effective component of the army for
employment without restricion in
tIme (-f war or major em orge ncies
when Congress has authorized the use
of troops in excess of those of tie
Regular Army. 'Wh aied into tlhe
service of the United States the ofh-
cers of the National Guard organiza-
tions are, comniissioned in the Offi-
cers' Reserve Corps by the President,
which places the National Guard con-
pletely under federa I control for the
time. There is no longer the danger
