The regrettable tendency is for the
individual to hazard his future in-
come upon some nebulous plan of
"easy payments." Salaried workers
are encouraged to spend more than
they actually earn and often at highI
rates of interest. Figures show that,
in the purchasing of small automo-
biles, buyers often mortgage their!
household furnishings to make the
down payment at an interest of ten
or twelve per cent; then, after mal-1
ing the initial deposit, they must pay
interest on the mortgage for the re-
mainder at an equally high rate. It
can be easily seen that buyers suffer,
a loss of twenty percent on their
capital by deferred payments. And
figures show that seventy-five to
ninety-five per cent of all automobiles,!
pianos, radios, and household articles
are sold on time.
What is true or individuals is moree
true of our cities and counties that
build roads which last for four years,
and pay for them over a period of
forty. Ten years ago, the average
family debt for the country was $250.
Today it is $1,500. The public debt
in the United States has increased
from a comparatively small amount
ten years ago to an aggregate of $30,-
750,000,000 today. Our municipal cor-
porations are inviting the collectors!
to make weekly calls at their civic#
back doors. With the prospect of?
sudden and widespread unemploy-
ment, natural catastrophes, depres-1
sion, and the like, how can a com-!
munity get back on its feet with suchj
an economic burden?
Credit has been extended so far that
merchants themselves are beginning
to worry. Consequently, a nation-
wide fund of $1,500,000 is being raised,
to protect retailers from dishonest
debtors. The money is, of course,
raised by increasing costs of merchan-
dise,-the consumer pays, and the
vicious economic circle is complete.
They are trying to find an antidote
for their own medicine, comments one
observer. It takes serious losses to
make credit men realize that fre-
quently they have only a paper profit
for their trouble.
People will always take advantage
of easy credit, but it remains for the
creditors to collect. When a man
may go down town with two dollars
in his pocket and walk off with a
fifty dollar suit under his arm on a
hazy promise to pay, someone con-
cerned in the bargain has left his
common sense at home.

Our entire detective force, in charge
of General Johnny 0. T. Spot, is now
working on the mystery of the CapI
Night fire that wasn't a Cap NightJ
fire. H- will investigate thoroughly
the incident of Thursday night, whe n
the materials. prepared for the big!
f re somehow became heated at the
delay, and burst out in a flash of red
anger . General Spott said last night
in a signed statement to the press:
"I have a clue, which I cannot give
out at present. However, I promise
that my whole energy will be put into
the task, and that I will neither eat
nor well, anyway, I will not eat un-
til I find the frosh that couldn't wait!
even one more day to get into the
sophomore class. I do not take any
stock in the rumor that the B. and G.
boys were just getting even with the
students for that mess of old fruit
and eggs that they had to clean up
over at the Law arch."

heartily urge you to buy a copy of the

Dear Timmie:
Let us congratulate you on your
monumental achievement and also
condole with you. I've written ROLLS
myself. We prophesy that within a
week you'll be calling for help.
You know the fact that we had the
column for a couple of days led to
the impression that we would be the{
next editor, God forbid. In fact, some
of the freshman have been congratu-
lating. us. Now that they are diabused
of the notion, let us give our reasons.'
First, as an unbiased critic of our
own work we are awarde of our great
limitations as a comedian. Second,
we weren't offered the job.
Thirdly, we, figuring that we'd
probably have to be Summer Daily
humorist, realized that eight weeks of
being funny (?) were enough. Of
course, that's not settled yet.
Finally, and most important, The
Daily is going to have to struggle
along without us pretty soon. The
unusual is happening-a lump rises
in our throat as we tell of it-we are
going to graduate. (Get the simple
pathos of it.) Column conductors will
shed tears, but to no avail. At the end
of summer school we will have to bid
ROLLS farewell.

A review, by Vincent Wall.
It was all a beautiful little fairy
story, white magic and all that sort P LE A S
of whamdoodle; and more, it was ex-
ceptional-in a way, and for a reason.
For instance, imagine if you will the®
Lawrence Housman fantasia done in

little maids from school in magenta

But it was exceptional . There was,I
to begin with, scarcely a hitch in the

truly rare for an amateur production;
the lighting was quite gasping for ON T H

true grasp of the situation-another
lily for Miss Simpson. For instance

Korean slave-girl was breathtaking

fering of a drama of an exceptional
if enigmatical character. It was a
delicate farce with a touch of satire
and poetry and comedy that might
have been missed-but wasn't. And
it was highly fortunate that the play
was in kind hands; for Lawrence'

A review, by W. Flummery.
Shaw, playing with Englishmen,
is superb. The Earl of Warwick, with
his "political necessities," is the same
aloof Briton that is today finessing the'
labor revolt of which the front pages'
now contain a plenitude. Who but
a Briton would describe a traitor as
one who sought not the best interests
of England? Who but a Briton would
correct a foreign clergyman in the
pronunciation of "prosecutor?" War- Fie

seeking, and Lynn Pratt cooly takes
Sadvantage of his casting to carry off
