With colleges all over the country
taking votes among the student bodies
and among the faculties, it is rather
interesting to note the results obtain-
ed among the various schools. Prac-
tically all the majorities are in favor
of a modification of the law, which
speaks of only one thing, and that is
that there exists a dissatisfaction in
reference to the law. What the conse-
quences of this voting will be is o:

that 86 voted for enforcement of the:

General Dawes' Work
Since the committee headed by Gen-
eral Dawes has been working with
some noticeable degree of interest on
the question of attempting to put Ger-
many again on her feet, there has do-
veloped among the different natiom
of the world an attitude that bespeaks
of greater sympathy and understand-
ing. The jealous and greedy feelings
and emotions of those on top have be-
come somewhat subdued; they have
become slightly appeased by the turn
in the interest of other nations to-
ward the future of Germany. This is
undoubtedly a good thing, and speakEI
well for the work that Dawes and his
associates are striving to carry out
