The problem or defending the
United States from a possible air at-
tack in case of war is now holding
the attention of the people of the
country to an extent that has no
precedent in the annals of aviation,
due largely to the vocal bombard-
iments of the energetic Colonel Mit-
chell, who is daily coveriig Washing-
ton with a barrage of charges, rang-
ing from plain incompetency to gen-
eral boneheadedness on the part of
the chiefs of the air service.
If the claims of the fire eating
colonel are proved to be substantially
correct, Lhere is a serious defect in
the defene plans of the United States
and it be;omes increasingly import-,
ant to determine just what resistance
could be offered in the event of an
invasion by air. With the breakdown
of the incompetent 'my and navy air
fprces, the prolem -of defense would
be left in the hanIs of the peace-time
aviators of the United States, and
here we find a record that is a cheer-
ful contrast with that published by
Colonel Mitchell in regard to the
military service.
The United States has the largest
number of -civilian aviators in the
world, many of whom are veterans
of the World war-and this list is
growing annually, due to the develop-
ment of commercial aviation in this
country. In 1924, seventy per cent
of the world's recordls in aeronautics
were held by Americrn flyers. The
United States Air 11,.il srvice ranks
far ahead of any othr line of peace-
time aviation, either here or in
Europe. Its service covers the long-
est air-line in the world and it has
no equal for continuous day and night
flying. There is no record of arti-
filially light airways or scheduled
night fliihts anywhere else in the
The transportation of passengers
by air has not been developed here
as it h in Europe, where the Lon-
don-l'arr' air passenger service has
long been established and where
other lii; are rapidly being formed.
How v(r, iany proposed air lines are
now under way and will soon have
another group of planes available for
, work in case of emergency.

"Dear Sir:-
Suppose you were offered DIA-
Suppose something you rarely think
of makes radically low prices for
even the fine quality diamonds
Suppose this all were offered by
the largest and oldest diamond
banking institution in all the
world. '
Wouldn't you be passing up a real
opportunity or having one dear
to you wear a sparkling gem of
fiery brilliance. Or, wearing one
yourself as a reflection of your
own prestige or standing."'
Above letter was received by one of
our friends recently. It really doesn't
strike you until you read it over a
few times. Then it arouses your
curiosity. It's a mighty clever letter.
This business about something you
rarely think of, for instance. Now
what can that be? There are lots of
things we rarely think of; the sewage
system of Seville, for example. Now
we hardly ever really think of that,
yet we can hardly imagine how that
can bring diamonds down to $60 per
carat. We never knew that you
bought diamonds by the carat. We
understood it was by the stone.
We don't see what they would do
if a man ordered seven carats o
diamonds and the only stones they
had were jsix and three carats each. It
would be something like these psy-
chological tests; except that you can't
pour a diamond from one pail to an-
other. And how do you bank dia-
monds? We've heard of wearing and
swallowing them but not banking
them. It seems to us that that is
something they do to roads, Another
new thought is this business about
wearing a diamond as a reflection of
your prestige and standing..... Ac-
cording to that Coolidge should wear
the biggest diamond in the country,
and so on down. But we doubt that
the President wears a sparkling gem
of fiery brilliance, as the letter so
poetically puts it.
The insidious part of that letter is
it gets your curiosity all worked up!
If we read that once more we are go-
ing to send for a half a carat's worth
of diamonds just to find out about
these things.

Iehabod writes us to suggest that
re. these new courses in Polish the
University should offer Fdnnish as
well. He gives as a reason some-
thing about a Finnishing as well as
a Polishing school...... It's pretty aw-
ful but we hate to discourage begin-
We don't approve of teaching Polish
anyway. We think the house-maids
should be taught English instead......
even though it would be harder.

-Mich. Daily, Sept. 30, 1925.
A review, by Edward Heyman.
The Shuberts have formed a very.
fascinating triumverate and put them
all in a pleasant entertainment. They
call it "Naughty Riquette," why, 1
really don't know. Riquette is a very
sweet telephone operator, quaintly
enough, not at all saucy or wicked
as the title might suggest. You know
she is a good little girl the moment
she appears on the, stage, for she
sings a pathetic ballad about "Dear
Little Brother of Mine." .. .
Mitzi plays the part of the girl who
supports an adopted brother. She
loses her job, and in a moment of
desperation promises to become a
conspirator in a plot far too compli-
cated to mention here. It is har4
to find a new adjective for this little
star. She has been called inimitable,
lovely, diminutive, dainty; and I find
myself heartily agreeing with these
descriptions. She is much of every-
thing-comedienne, dancer and sing-
er, She can laugh and cry easily, and
her adoring public cry and laugh with
A young Englishman, Lupino Lane,
is making his American debut as an
all around office boy, detective, and
man about town. He is an excellent
co-star for Mitzi. I cannot think of
any of our comedians who have the
combined personality and bag of
tricks that Mr. Lupino has. His per-
formance calls for every enthusiasm.
Oscar Straus, composer of Viennese
waltzes, completes the trio. His mu-
sic adds a touch of opperetta to the
piece. The numbers range all the
way from bright marching tunes to
the higher type of love song, and all
good. Also a word of praise for Sey-
mour Felix for his unusually clever
dance arrangements; the chorus for
its fine sense of rythm Alexander
Gray, a capable hero with a real
voice, and a young man and woman
who sing the song hit, "Someone" in
blackface. I wish all musical com-
edies were as bright and gay and
tuneful as "Naughty Riquette."
A review, by Kenneth Wickware.
One can overlook the creaky eccen-
tricities of the old organ, and the in-
cessant coughing, and the rustling of
programs in the audience; there in
the mellow half-light one can forget
those things that should be forgot-
ten. With the powerful strains of
Maitland's "Concert Overture" we
are in mood . . . there are but few
vacant seats today. The, professor's
assignment leaves our mind; swell-
ing, fading, the impressive chords
quite fill the vast auditorium . .
