DO UNTO OTHERS
Now that we have national "movie",
"auto", and "church" weeks, along
with a few dozen others, it should be
acceptable to establish a "borrowed
book" week. At this time all people
will be requested to devote a ittle
time to going through their various
book repositiories and returning all
i those novels, textbooks, and other
kinds of books which they have bor-
towed from their friends during the
preceding twelve months. Ceitain it

often borrowed and so seldom return-

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1924
The French elections have just been
completed without any change of im-
portance being effected in the sen-
ate. As a matter of fact no party can,
boast of a victory in these elections.
One result of note stands out, and
that is the almost unanimous elec-
ion of M. Raymond Poincare for the
Meuse. It shows very conceretely how
much the people think of the way
the former president of the French
Republic is carrying out the affairs
of France; it gives evidence of the
unusual esteem and prestige that the
premier enjoys among his fellow coun-
So far as taking any active person-
al interest in the elections, the pre-
mier was far removed from, any such.

If the League of Nations is to be an
effective agency of peace, it must of
necessity ,be open to all states that
wish to join, and it is equal:y true
that for the same reason the United.
States should have some affiliation
with it. And it likewise has been well
understood that this country should
not be bound by the Versailles treaty.
The clauses dealing with interna
tional law appear to be the most im-
portant in Plan 1469. If international
laws are to be observed, it is essen-
tial that; they be given expert atten- l
tion, that they be revised and develop-
ed, as he prize winner suggests, "to
reconcile divergent opinions, to con-
sider points hitherto inadequately pro-
vided for but vital to the mainten-
ance of international justice, and in
general to define the social rights and
k luties of states."
Plan 1469 appears at first glance
to be somewhat of a disappointment.
Some brilliant, novel, surefire idea had
been expected by many, instead of this
,compilation of more, or less old sug-
gestions for the e'mination of war.
The plan evidently is an attempt to
harmonize the conflicting features of
these various suggestions which have,
to some extent, represented the views
of, posing political parties and fac-

The idea that a drive for funds must
be preceded by a heavy artillery of
publicity in the Daily and elsewhere
is- apparently based on the allacious
theory that when the studeint reads
in the paper that there is .going to be
a drive he fills his jeans with extra
coin to give the -nendicants..
This theory, as we say, is tallacious.
The first thing we, Cowles, do when
we read of a coming drive is to ?ay
all our coin in our top bureau draw-
er and then march up and .down in
front of a pier glass rehearsng the
following telling speeches:

A LESSON IN STATISTICS
Quite often some question of fin-
arse or political economy must needs
figure in this co'umn. Hence the time-
liness of an item in the Worcester
Telegram stating that Los Angeles in
wealth has the highest per capita fig-
ures of any city in the United States
over 700,000 population. The glad
news further has it that the wealth
of men, women and children in Los
Angeles by the head if $2974. Inspir-
ing figures! Perhaps many readers
of the glad tidings may decide to mi-
grate to Los Angeles where with their
$2974 they might buy themselves a
good suit of clothes and some groc-
cries and live in comfort for a little
