Saturday, the one regret growing out
of the affair is due to the fact that the
words of wisdom from the lips of these

It was a meeting where there were
no axes to grind. The University
assumed a receptive attitude-toward
ideas-and .the alumni were enthusi-
astic in offering the best counsel that
they could make available.
This type of gathering makes the
student and faculty man proud that

OUR IMMIGRATION LAW TO
CONTINUE
There seems to be no question in the
mind of President Coolidge and of
most high government officials that
the United States must continue a pol-
licy of restrictive immigration; not
only are they firmly convinced that
such a policy be continued, but they
are also considering the possibility of
adding new restrictions. To go back
to the old system of limitless immi-
gration is now entirely out of the4
realm of their thought.I
It is generally conceded that immi-
gration must be held in check in order'
to insure national security and well-
being. On' the other hand it is only
with the greatest of efforts on the part
of those in charge of this work that
any amount of success can be attained.j
The great inconveniences and suffer-
ings that many people are forced toI
undergo because of the unfortunate
workings of part of the law are only'
too well-known. Many distressing
problems have arisen since the new
immigration laws have been in effect,
and 'the lack of cooperation on the
part of the ship companies has tended
to augment the seriousness of the sit-'
uation. Many solutions 'have been of-
fered and some of them acted upon,
but seemingly without any great
amount of success.
One of the greatest obstacles to a
common-sense solution of the problem
is the fact that all of the work of
selecting our future citizens is done
on this side of the water. There arel
countless numbers who come here
only to be sent back because their
country's quota has been filled or be-
cause they are not the type desired.I
This is both a trouble and'a needless'
expense to our government and by no
means of small account to the individ-
uals themselves. It would be better
for our government to provide for'
new and more efficient agencies in the

But try the Pollyanna game

EDITORIAL COMMENT
BRAIN TESTS FOR MARRIAGE
(The Boston Evening Transcript)
A classifying and testing age ever
delights in seeking out and prescribing
new tests. The card index Multiplies
and grows steadily in popular favor.
The day of the test tube is reaching
its meridian. And now a member of
the faculty of the University of Wis-
consin, the well-known sociologist,
Professor E. A. Ross, has come for-
ward with the very definite prediction
that within twenty years. we may look
forward to intelligence tests as a re-
quirement for those who would enter
upon the holy state of _matrimony.
How, it may be asked, can we detect
the presence in sufficient quanities of
"natiive intelligence" and how; can we
be sure that so many grams of this
precious metal of mkind,, and not a cer-
tain quality of heart, the pure gold of
the spirit, is not really the magic ele-
ment needed to avoid matrimonial
shipwreck? Intelligence, which is
really a combination of common sense;I
and a fair modicum of gray, matter, is
a desirable possession both for the
married and the unmarried. Is it,
however, an infallible bulwark against
the perils that beset the domestic
hearth? The ability to work out an
algebraical formula, the ability to put
two and two together, the power to
reason from a series of observations. C
is without question useful, and with-
out question adds to the enjoyment
and appreciation of life, yet this abil-
ity has not always sufficed to insure
the success of marriage. There have
been many intelligent persons who
could emerge with flying colors from
any examination set by the professors,
whose married lives have not been
conspicuous either for their unity.
their concord or their harmony,
Others there have been, both men and
women, who would have failed miser-
ably at every hurdle presented by
the intelligence-seeking questionnaire,
whose married lives-at least in their
own estimation, and that after all is
the crux of the matter-would have
satisfied the most exacting demands
of the moralist.
If Professor Ross's prophecies are
borne out, and it is not for us to say
that they will not be, the marriage
license bureau will become an exami-
nation center as well. A certificate of
intelligence ordinarily will accompanv
the marriage license, and it is to be
supposed that there Wlfl be a.doublt
fee to be paid. No'doubt there will ip
cramming schools and special tutors
for the backward, and the forward
youth who would aspireto his lady
