the same direction. At the presentI
time at Washington, the drys are
pleading with the federal government
to supply money to enforce the pro-
hibition laws. The sooner that these
agencies realize that law enforcement
is not a matter of money, but of the
whole spirit of the nation, the more
nearly they will approach the desiredI
goal. To advocate law enforcement
in the abstract, for the mere principle
of enforcement, is fundamentally
wrong; to plead for respect of law be-
cause of the social principle involved
comes very close to the ideal view-
point-that of law as a protective1
Holding bhe honor system, as oper-1
ated at Cornell university, responsible
for much more evil than good, the,
Cornell Sun has listed eight accusa-
tions which it claims prove the sys-
tem radicallly wrong. The assertion
is made that the honor system is
based on an undesirable trait of hu-
man nature-that of spying upon andl
reporting other students.
The surprising ,part of the argn-
ment is that no cognizance is taken of
a trait which should be a part of all
human nature, particularly of that of
cultured college students,-honor. All
society enjoys a certain degree of
honor, even the criminal has a code
which he will not violate; but students
have not enough honor, according to
the Sun, to live up to the rules which
they know are created for their own
good. They will not report students
who are infringing upon what should
be part of the students' code of honor.
A man reports another whom he
suspects of having entered his house
or whom he sees attempting to steal
something of his. It is human nature
to have such a person punished, and
no one would ever accuse the man
who made such a report of having
humored an undesirable trait in hu-
man nature. Yet, the Sun implies
that a student who reports another
student for cheating in an examina-
tion is cultivating that undesirable
trait. There does not seem to be any
great difference between the two types
of spying and reporting, and yet that
is the argument upon which the Sun
bases its accusations.
Other accusations have for their
foundation merely administrative de-
fects in the system, and if some
changes were made, these would
probably be overcome. At least, a
code should not be condemned merely
because of a few flaws in its methods
of procedure, particularly whew the'
main object seems to come from ani
incorrect accusation. Surely some
form of honor exists among univer-

(As reported to the Timeznuze)
It seems that spring being here,
and one thing and another, several
young swains and damsels felt the
urge of Eros and the love of moon-
light and drove down around Ferry
field for a peaceful conversation. But
as there were three cars there alto-
gether, there was not much privacy.
On top of this, along came a gentle-
man who apparently had no sense of
the fitness of things. He insisted upon
going up to each auto and holding
conversation with the occupants.
"Pardon me," he said, "but it
you'll just give me all your valuables
I'll go right away and leave you
alone." And to make sure that no one
would take him wrong or consider
him rude, he carried in his right hand
a small Colt automatic.
So the occupants of the car', who
did not want to be bothered since they
had come all the way down to Ferry
field for solitude, did as he bid and
then he proceeded to the next car and
so on, until all three had bribed him
sufficiently to- make sure that he would
leave them.
The moral of this little story is
obvious: Whereas all these new-
fangled parking places may be more
original, and all that sort of thing,
anyone who is not a smart Aleck will
see right away that in spite of all the
jokes about it the right place to go in
spring is the Boulevard.
So excited were the stands at the
opening of the local baseball season
at Ferry field recently, that they sud-
dlenly burst into flame. Seeing this,
two noble students put the conflagra-
tion out by means of a hose which
happened to be handy. Seeing this
the officers of the athletic association
called upon the fire department. The
fire having been put out by the first
half of the second inning, the local
smoke eaters arrived in time to see
the players and the crowds leaving
the field, whereupon they became
much excited and got out all their
apparatus. Their disappointment at
not only missing the fire, but also the

I came to a lazy profane and hum-
ble city a short time ago. Do you
know Washington?
Gold lace and titled dignitaries: a
city with wisteria upon its brain, with
a flesh of marble: the illuminated
cones of great spires: blue nights pro-
foundly quiet, given over to the
negroes and to the aristocrats: bridg-I
es guarded by granite griffins and gi-
gantic eagles bearing shields in their
beaks: where the vices of yesterday
are revered and the vices of today are
respected: the faint pink of cherry
blossoms in early dawn, and red pa-
vilions stretching down to basis of
blue waters: files of prancing cobs
with their attendant grooms: the race-
track betting; feline blackamoors:
dog-shows: and the Peacock room in
the Freer gallery: and the Italian
moderns with economy of tone and
freshness of perception ranged
through the spacious halls of the
Smithsonian: the florid tangle of iron
balustrade before old houses with
lighting offered by clusters of crystal
chandaliers: hydrangea and damp
cellars sending out their perfumes:
and the flags and the uniforms!

"As Great Britain is heralding
to the world that we are a sordid
people, let the world understand
that the wealth she gathered to
herself at the close of the war is
not to be compared to any amount
that-she could have been called
upon to pay to the United States
under her debt agreement. One
million, six hundred and seven
thousand square miles of terri-
tory passed to the control of
Great Britain after the war. The
United States waived all claim to
reparations. When it came to a
division of the territory of the
conquered nations, the United
States was careful' to make it
clearly understood that we sought
no territory. And finally, in
making a settlement with Great
Britain we forgave that country
