days. And he excuses his actions by
saying, "If I did not permit the
saloons to run, my borough would
be cluttered with blind tigers and
stills would be as plentiful as cats. j
And it likely also would mean the
murder of some of my policemen."
And that the town fathers have the
courage of their convictions is indi-
cated by the fact, that they recently
arrested a prohibition administratorf

The problem of the college and uni-

selecting students. However, care
must be exercised, both in the admis-
sion of students and in the "weeding
out" of undesirables. There is danger
in making too difficult the entrance
requirements,-many who are worthy
might be excluded.
At least two conditions make re-
quirements imposed at entrance, at
best, rather hazardous: the absence
of a common standard with which to
measure students from widely scat-
tered areas; and the fact that some
reach a high degree of development
early in life, while to others it comes
In its "weeding out" policy, the
college must also use care, for it is
oftentimes difficult to isolate real
ability. Dean Herbert E. Hawkes of'
Columbis college recognized this fact
recently when he said: "Laziness,
temporary enthusiasms and social di-
versions often conceal ability from
any but the keenest observer, while
ambition, reliability, patience and
adaptability are frequently mistaken
for it. Essential as these latter
qualities are for the highest success,
they are not the same as native
ability and must not be confused with

by their right names, and to provide
