The protest which was caused by
this action ought to be sufficient evi-

but also to all other states that the
teaching of journalism in the univer-

as well as newspaper men. Led by the

,of Texas country newspapers, and the'
publishers and editors of a dozen city
dailies throughout the state have pub-
lished articles deploring the situation.
The only answer. to the protest is
that it was necessary to cut education-
al appropriations at some point and
the school of journalism was chosen
as one of the weaker departments
which should suffer because of the
lack of funds. It was the thought of
President Walter M. Splawn that the
university would be hurt less by the
elimination of the journalism work
along with music, library science and
the summer session.
Apparently lie did not realize what
a favorable sentiment for the school
existed throughout the state. Similar
indications of sympathy with the
teaching of journalism would serve to
establish it as a profession worthy
of greater notice than it has received
up to the present time. Another guess
may be necessary to find the weak de-
partment to cut instead of the School
of Journalism.
STOP, THIEF!
It seems that several students have
been getting decidedly promiscious in
their pursuit for source materials-
so much' so in fact that they have
resorted to clipping the newspaper
files in the general library. Tales are
also told of persons who have removed
books from reference rooms and of
seniors on the campus who have
taken books out of the library without
charging them with the attendant.
And they all plead ignorance of the,
rules.
Perhaps it would be well for the
library to adopt some novel means of1
publicity to make clear just what stu-
dents are permitted to 'do while in and
out of the building. They might print
a pamphlet to distribute at registra-
tion containing information on "how
to use a university library-its cata-
logue, newspaper files, reference

famous people in New York quite
easily just by going to the perform-
ance.
The seats were either one, three,
five, or seven dollars, and we bought
a dollar seat in what they call the
Family Circle.
* * *
Well we blew in at the Manhattan
Opera house at about the right time
and there were a whole covey of
trick-looking ginches, all decked out
in seductive garments. They were sell-
ing programs. Well, all I knew about
the show was what it had said in the
ads, and that was just a list of names.
So I though if I was to get any benefit
myself out of it I'd have to buy one
of these things. They were a dollar
but I bought one anyway.
Then I was directed to an elevator,'
and in due time reached the Family
Circles It was on the roof of the
opera house, but there were holes that
you could look through and so get a
glimpse of the stage.
The program, we confess, was some-
thing of a disappointment. There were
a great many advertisements, all com-
plimentary-like this:
Compliments of
B. ALTMAN AND 'C0.
COMPLIMENTS OF
A friend
And there were a great many ads
from members of the profession.
COMPLIMENTS OF
Clorea and Trevor
(Now playing Seattle, Wash.)
But when.we finally got to the pro-'
gram' proper, we found only the same
list of names that had been on the
bill-board outside.
* * *
Presently a man in a Tuxedo came
out on the stage and made a speech.
lie talked about what a pleasure it
was to have us all here this evening.
le said he wanted us all to be friend-
ly, both with the actors and with each
other. Like one big family, he said,
and all the people in the Family Cir-
cle looked flattered. He wanted every-
body 'to 'talk to the person on his
right, whether he knew him or not-
even if it was a lady, he said, at which
there was a loud laugh.
Then he introduced a radio an-
nouncer who is well known in the

"TitE SWAN"
The management of the Arcade The-
atre, calling a lull in their constant
round of dollar "super-pictures," are
presenting the film version of Ferenc
Molnar's "The Swan" today and to-
morrow-their artistic flier could last
them but two days. As a play, "The
Swan" was one of the outstanding
successes in New York last season;
as a picture, of course, minus the
sophisticated Shavian dialogues, it can-
not be as delightful. Nevertheless, it
should stand, with Dmitri Bucho-
wetzki as the director and Clare
Eames in the role of the Countess,
among the significant films of the year.
You should not miss it.

"WHAT PRICE GLORY"
A review, by Robert Henderson.
"What Price Glory" represents the
mose effective pacifist propaganda in
New York and America today. It pic-
tures war as it doubtless is, sans sen-
timent, bathos or cant; the local pen-
ny patriots might do well to be chas-
tened by its acrid realism.
Yet even the most adriot thesis
conceivable could notdraw the months
of capacity houses that this play con-
tinues to, if it stopped at a mere con-
vincing doctrine. It is here that the
authors show their keen theatric skill
by introducing for their climax a tri-
angle theme of two men and a girl.
One is a bully by crass strength, heavy
and vicious; the other a bully by sheer
nerve, hard and sharp as steel; and
the girl, ironically enough, is nothing
but a ,loggy slattern, a sodden volup-
tuary by so much animal instinct.
The acting, of course, is flawless.
Louis Wolheim, transferred from a
similar part in "The Hairy Ape," plays
the overweaning Captain, and William
Boyd the keener Sergeant. One is like
iron, the other like flint, perhaps, and
the powerful picture they present is
due not alone to their individual in-
terpretations, but to the exact tech-
nique which foils their personalities
in contrast.
A great deal has been made of the
play's profanity by the scandal press
yet it is all so sincere, so natural and
in keeping that it offers no obvious
offense. As a matter of fact, the The-
atre Guild's production of "They
Knew What They Wanted" is consid-
erably more shocking with its tre-
mendous plethera of swearing.
In the end, one leaves the theatre
with the impression of the love story,
the drunken brawls, but basically,
above all, the sense of a keen apper-
ception into the actual filth and stu-
pidity of the entire war gamble. There
is the picture of the inju-stice, the
stench, the ghastly mass of blood and
infected wounds, the several touches
of ironic pathos. It makes one won-
der it has maede thonsands wonder
