AN INCH FOR A lIWLE
The United States is not the only
nation which is experiencing consid-
erable trouble in getting an official
and definite statement from France
as to what, how, and when in regardj
to the payment of her war debts. Dis-
patches from London indicate that
Creat Britain does not intend to per-
mit any delay in French action on
Chancellor Winston Churchill's note
concerning the French debt of about
$3,125,000,000 owed to the British.
There are several factors to con-

had checks wouldn't have any shame
to speak of. It may, however, start
people thinking aleng the right iine:s.
They may come to realh'e the g
of what they do carelesly.
The practice may be regarded as
just another manife tation of the gen-
eral tendency of students-and other
classes of people-to attempt to get
something for nothing. They cheat in
finals, they borrow theses, and try to
make themselves believe they are get-
ting an education. With the habit or
thinking in this vein thoroughly es-
tablished they try to put one over in
the realm of things financial. And
sometimes they get away with it. It
is this latter aspect that causes t

to refuse this distinct service to the
students. Perhaps a few threatened
prosecutions might help, just to put a.
little fear in the hearts of the trans-
gressors. Until such time, however,
honest students must cooperate by
keeping tab en their accounts; those
with "criminal tendencies" had better
mend their ways before they take to

BRITAIN, FACEM A hUMI WAR
With a full grown ?iec r bootleg;g-
ing industry just discovered on her
southern coast, Great Britain is fats-
ing a huge rum war which will prob-
ably be necessary to stop the influx
of thousands of dollars worth of
!r'nch brandies. wines, and chai-
aigns which are being smuggled into
the country every week by a fleet of
small and speedy run-running launch-
es, very similar to those being used
