Fiske Stone of the United States
Supreme Court.
Veterans of the World war, attend-
ing the convention of the American
Legion at Omaha, are preparing to
enter the lists in the national air-
craft tournament which Colonel Wil-
liam Mltichell set iI motion a month
ago when he launched his sensational
charges against army and navy offi-
cials, and which have since held the
center of interest in military and con-
gressional circles.
The Legion will throw its weight
on one side of the battle or the other
-the feeling of the men who will
carry the fight to the floor of the con-
vention is too strong to allow half-
way measures. Just what effect this
weight will have on the scales of
justice which are being - cted 'by
the President's investig N ommit-
tee at Washington is a -ion, but
Legion officials believe' it -ill have a
great influence on the final decision.
The Legion is composed of military
men, many of whom were in the
aviation service during the World
war and afterward;, and they are
probably as- well informed .on the is-
sues in question as any other body of
men, except, perhaps, the investigat-
ing committee which has been listen-
ing to heated accusations and denials
for the past few weeks at Washing-
Colonel Mitchell will not appear in
person on the convention' floor, but
his messeage will be read and his
aides are ready to launch a vigorous
campaign that they hope will bring
a hearty endorsement of the colonel's
plans for a separate air service de-
partment from the convention. The
battle over Mitchell is the, issue which
the delegates are planning 'ver-

met, which will promptly become
the scene of a verbalvolcano, if the
the colonel is in form. The air board,
having survived a few days spent on
Mitchell, will now begin in the task
of getting opinions from naval air
Army officers advocate the creation
of a separate air corps in the army;
navy officers recommend a separater
air corps for the navy; Colonel Mit-
chell advocates the establishment of
a department of national defense,
combining both; the American Legion
will advocate something, but nobody
knows what as yet.-At least, theret
is very little talk of leaving the entireI
situation as it was before the Shen- s
andoah disaster and the ill-fate'l
Hawaii flight, which precipitated Col-
onel Mitchell's charges and started
the entire affair.
Regardless of the Legion's decisiont
and the final result as given in the
formal court-martial which will start
next week, it is certain that the air,
defense of the United States will be
improved.. Colonel Mitchell should be
thanked for giving the entire situa-
tion a national airing that has spread
through San Francisco, Omaha, Wash-
ington, and Lakehurst, New Jersey,
and which will culminate 'in very
definite action for the improvement
of the air service, regradless of which
of the proposed reforms is adopted.
In the past we've had everything
from Varsity football teams to Var -
sity inns, but it remained for three
ambitious students who are attempt-
ing to work their way through school
to give us-the Varsity barrel, bar-
rels filled with apples, for which the
purchaser was requested to deposit
five cents.
This is not an advertisement for
the barrels, we are not financially or'
otherwise interested in them (beyond
the fact that they furnish a conveni-
ent way for us to buy our favorite
fruit in small quantities), but we find
that they have made a distinct con-
tribution to the campus from an ex-
perimental standpoint. During the
first three days of their existence, the
proprietors are said to have lost more
than $17. Instead of money to pay
for apples worth that amount they
found broken glass keys and metal
slugs of every description,-evidence
of the fact that the pseudo purchasers
are afraid of the gaze of public
opinion, but are cowardly and under-
handed enough to steal such petty
things as apples, worth five cents
We don't want to preach, there's
nothing we hate more, but it does
seem wrong to educate people whose
code of honor is as degraded as this,
with education they may go in for
bigger and better thefts.
(The Boston Evening Transcript)
Rumor is uncertain about the debt
negotiations, the Security Agreement;
meeting at Locarno may result in
anything, the Mosul question is
in a delicate condition, but we
know at least that Mr. Jack
Dempsey has signed a protocol
by the terms of which he is to
meet Mr. Harry Wills in September,
1926, at Michigan City, Indiana. It
can thus be seen that while diplo-
matists, soldiers and international
financiers are fooling away their time,
or, worse still, making insinuations
about each other, these two silent,

strong men have done what they
could to still a world's fevered pulse.
One item of vital importance at least
is out of the doubtfiil index-Mr.
Dempsey and Mr. Wills are to meet as
one comet impinges on the are of an-
It is to be, so we gather from des-
patches, a meeting or tourney mark,
ed by the absence of commercial con-
sideration. Neither man has been
guaranteed a cent; they will box on
a percentage; Mr. Dempsey has post-
ed a trifling $100,000 and Mr. Wills
a negligible $50,000; these gentlemen
will each receive a derisory $25,000
as preliminary expenses and we are
glad to hear that it was paid them
last night, as was proper for the sim-
ple wants of true artists. This is
most fitting, for if the percentages
should be nothing, it will be seen
that they would have had all that
trouble and fatigue to no purpose, ex-
cept some very healthful exercise.
The actual signing of the protocol
took place in an office over a drug
store in Niles, Mich., where no doubt
a commemorative plaque will be af-
fixed. It is in these modest sur..
roundings and in this quiet way that
a great historical event has taken
place and let all congratulate them-
selves that here at last is a definitei
bit of world news. Needless to say all
details in the lives of the two princi-,

Throughout the whole of last year the
Wednesday night dances at Granger's
were popularly attended. The same has
been true of the mid-week dances this
year. Coming when they do they offer
the students who care for dancing an
opportunity for a few hours of recrea-
tion during the week. The crowds at
these Wednesday night dances are of a
nice size. The music, as on Friday and
Saturday nights, is furnished by Jack
Scott's Club Royal Ten Piece Orchestra.
Dancing every
Wednesday, 8-10
Friday, 9-1
Saturday, 9-12
Tickets for these dances

Something ought to be done about
this situation. It seems
to be getting worse daily and no one
is giving it the slightest attention. It
shows just what this country is com-

tinues to grow worse right under the
noses of the people and they are pow-
