HURSDAY, DEC.EMBER 6, 1923
Night Editor-THOMAS E. FISE
BREAKING THE BACKBONE OF
any other, optimistically predicts a
majority of over a million votes forl
his party, but, when one considers that
the conservatives began their govern-
ment with a clear majority over their
opponents of seventy seven repre-
sentatives in the House of Commons,
one may safely rate his figures a little
high. It is certain that the election.
will be close and hard fought.
There is more involved in its re-
sult than the mere defeat of the Con-"
servative party; there is more to con-
sider than the rather interesting rap-
prochement and union of the two
wings of the Liberal party; if Stanley
Baldwin wins his fight with enough of'
a majority so that he may consider
his policies as approved by the people,
and his requests to be freed from the
pledge of Bonar Law, as granted, he
will proceed to change the whle fis-
cal policy of the English nation.
England has prospered and flour-
ished under free trade for eighty
years, and the characteristic conser-
vatism of the English may turn from
such a radical change. Speculation is
rife as to whether Stanley Baldwin
can carry through what Joseph
Chamberlain tried to do in 1903 but
failed. The fundamental basis of the
situation has altered since the con-
servatives tried to change twenty
years ago, however. In those days,
England was the work shop of the
world, the creditor nation of nations,
and now she is the largest debtor of
any nation. This makes a vast differ-
ence, and probably explains Mr. Bald-
win's move as a move of a man with
courage which can face a nation with
an issue, cons'cious that he has op-
posed to him, a newly united party in
the Liberals, and a strong opposition
in the Labor party.
TEACHING A PROFESSOR
Interesting indeed, is the result of
the recent questionnaire circulated
among the junior class of Princeton
university to ascertain the success of
the new four course system of study,
instituted there at the beginning ofj
the current semester. The class in
question is the first to be affected by
the new plan which calls for the
carrying of only four courses during
the two latter years of the student's
collegiate career but involves the ex-
tension of outside reading require-
ments and is intended to stimulate the
student to further investigation along
the lines of his major courses.
Resulting from the circulation of
formal question blanks among mem-
bers of the class of '25, the concensusE
of opinion was in favor of the plan
now in practice but with only half a
dozen exceptions, those who expressed
their approval of the plan were dissat-
isfied with the present methods which
are being used to carry it out. None
but a questionable few of the entire

has been waiting for for about a
month now is the Lucky Strike coup-
ons. Everybody saw the signs in the
windows a long time ago, telling us
all to keep our optic apparatus
trained on the newspapers for the
Lucky Strike coupon which would en-
title us to a package of the Cigarette
of Nations for 9 cents. (The 9 cents
being just to cover the cost of pack-
ing, mailing, etc., we presume.) Well,
we looked and we looked, anfd every-
body else looked and looked-and no
coupon appeared. We kept on buying
our package a day at the regulation
15 cent rate.
And then one fine day the tobac-
conists hoisted a sign into the window
bearing the joyful news: TODAY ISI
THE DAY! and telling everybody to
get out the old newspaper and the
old shears. . . . But the coupon
was not in the paper.J

NOT FROM THE ATHLETIC
To the Editor:
In your editorial this morning with
reference to the use of athletic funds
you fall into an error which seems to
have been quite common since the'
announced action of the Regents of
last week. That action was not taken
with reference to any proposal sub-
mitted by the Board in Control of
Athletics or by the Athletic associa-
tion. There has never been any stad-
ium plan adopted by our Board other'
than the one of which the present
south stand is a unit.
While I am not in position to speak
as an authorized representative, I
am quite certain that the action of the
Regents was occasioned by a very
common, but unofficial, agitation
among students, alumni and, perhaps,;

bodies it is a nominal majority and:
made so by the Progressive bloc which
at present is causing the delay. This
would seem to indicate that the party
in power will accoA.plish very little
at the precise time when they should
accomplish much. If the small radi-
cal group is blocking action at the'
present time, it will probably continueJ
