STILL ANOTHER GUNr
"Tonight I fire the first :gun," de-
clared President Burton recently be-
fore nine hundred visiting Kiawan-
tans, "in a campaign for the highest7
type of educators that money can:
procure. We have passed the peak of
our building program-"
A' . . . .but have we?
One would think, from a cursory ex-
amination of the new Literary build-
ing that it was practically finished.
Perhaps it is. But if so the architects
have forgotten something. Fine build-
ings and the highest type of educators
are nice things to have at a University.
But there are other things-things
which may seem trivial to the mighty
,minds who rule the destinies of this
institution- which play nearly as im-
portant part in the educational
The things referred to are coat
hooks. The importance of these ob-
jects, poor and unassuming though
they be, cannot be too greatly stressed.
Provision for an abundance of them,
distributed in every nook and cranny
of our halls of learning, should be
one of the first acts of those who
plan our new buildings and remodel
our old. The lack of a coat hook might
easily mean the loss to our country of
a statesman, of a great lawyer, of a
This loss might come about in the
following way: A student enters his
classroom in the new Literary build-
ing for an eight o'clock. It is a cold,
bleak winter morning; snow is fall-
ing, and the student's coat is covered
with a thin film of ice and snow. lie
removes his overcoat, places it in the
seat, and then sits upoon it, prepared
to sip the wisdom which drips from
the instructor's lips.
But presently the damp overcoat
on which he is sitting begins to make
itself felt. The student ceases to sip,
his wisdom long enough to shift him-
self to another position. Those about
him are temporarily demoralized.
In another moment he turns again
from the cup of knowledge to adjust
himself. This he continues at regular
intervals, until, in desperation, he re-
moves the overcoat and hurls it, sod-
den with half-melted' snow, into the
corner. Once more turning his atten-
tion to the lecture, he finds himself
so uncomfortable and so perturbed
that he cannot concentrate,.
Contrast this with the picture of aj
class which files in quietly, hangs its
snowy wraps in a neat room on coat,
hooks, sits down, and pays steady at-
tention to the instructor for n. solid
To the Editor:
Your leading editorial of Oct. 3, con-
tains some highly debatable state-
ments. You assert that the Republican
party would give the country "a gov-
ernment which would be in the main
united . . ." In view of the record of
this party in the last four years; in
view of its destructive divergence on
the issues of taxation, soldier's bon-
us, postal pay increase, civil war pen-
sion bill and Japanese immigration;
in view of the conflict between the
Senate and the Executive on matters;
of foreign policy and moreover with
Senator LaFollette, a Republican, run-
ning for President on a separate tick-
Iet, with Senator Brookhart demand-F
