'Night !Editor-ELLIS B. MERRY
Because of its,-power to createpub-
li-c confidence, the legal recognition
of an industry by the national gov-
ernment is one of the greatest aids
to its firm establishment. With the
signing of the Bingham bill by Presi-
dent Coolidge, such distinction was
granted to commercial aviation.
By providing for the examination
and licensing of pilots and planes and
for the enforcement of air traffic reg-
ulations, this measure materially in-
creases the safety factor of general
flying in this country. Likewise, the
authorization of the secretary of com-
merce to establish air ports, air lines,
and meteorlogical service will make
the commercial use of aircraft profit-
able. With the law going into effect
July ,3, many concerns who have been
waiting for a definite expression of
the government's attitude will be en-
couraged to enter this new field of
transportation. In addition to thus
providing air service for many parts
of the country, this movement will
also build up a large reserve of pilots,
airplanes, and aircraft factories which
will be available for national defense.
In short, by the enactment of this
long-advocated measure, the federal
government has laid the foundation
for an industry essential to our gen-
eral welfare and increased prosperity.

decided to build in the memory of
Christy Mathewson, for many years
the idol of the game. Not a home for
themselves, or for those of their num-
bers that have spent the better part
of their lives playing the game, but
for the men who served their coun-
try in the great War.
Baseball is a business, just like
coal mining and manufacturing, and
all baseball players, do not receive
the stupendous salaries which the
press of the nation delights in attri-
buting to some. Neither is the own-
ing of a ball club as grossly profitable
as one might imagine. Donating a
day's receipts to this cause is no
easier for baseball players and own-
ers than it would be for people in
other branches of human endeavor[
If the local merchants and their em-
ployees decided to make some such
donation, the public would immedi-
ately realize the sacrifices involved.
Merchants do not do such things; ball
players do. Can professional base-
ball be so bad?

(The Christian Science Monitor)
Most vicious of all the propaganda
of those who oppose prohibition is
that which has attempted to fasten a
slander upon the younger generation
of Americans. It is doubtless true
that youth often objects to restric-
tions, -a fact that has had recent il-
lustration in the widespread student-
initiated effort to do away with com-
pulsory chapel in many colleges an
universities of the United States. But
quite aside from the half-jesting
straw votes" that have been held on
some campuses recently relative to.
the Eighteenth Amendment, the vast
bulk of unbiased information indicates
that drinking and drink-prompted de-
bauchery is much less among young
people, under prohibition, than for-
Two years ago The Christian Sci-
ence Monitor made a survey of nearly
two hundred colleges and universities
in the United States on the prohibition
question. Replies were received-not
from the students who were unfa-
miliar with pre-prohibition conditions
-but from the deans who were able
to speak with authority. In all but
twelve of the schools reported, pro-
hibition was 'declared to have de-
creased drinking.
Confirmation of this survey has
come from many sources. The Moni-
tor has just 'received an account of a,
prize contest on prohibition carried on
by World News, a current events
periodical for high schools published
in Columbus, 0. After exhausti4
elimination contests were held iii
many classes, essays were finally sent
in from 120 high schools in thirty-two
states. Of these 120 carefully written
articles 104 were for the maintenance
of prohibition and the enforcement of
the Volstead Act.
Preparatory to his appearance be-
fore the Senate committee at the pro-
hibition hearing Dr. Daniel A. Poling,
president of the Society for Christian
Endeavor, including a membership of
5,500,000 young people, sent out, a
questionnaire to the chapters of his
organization on this question. Asked

whether or not they believed light
wines and beers should be legalized,-
531 chapters replied "no," only seven,
"yes." Asked whether or not they

Beginning next Fall, a new organization for
the booking of organized and rehearsed or-

offices and rehearsing quarters at Granger'$

Granger's Musical Enterprises will fill a
long felt need on the campus in providing a
centralized and responsible booking agency,
thus alleviating many of the evils heretofore
incident to the engaging of local dance music.
These enterprises will be under the joint
supervision and direction of Mr. B. F.

By a recommendation that the hon-
or system be initiated first in the'
smaller classes of the literary college
and then, if successful, into the larger
ones, the Student council has tried to
avoid one fault of the system at the
expense of creating greater oppor-
tunities for its failure. Evidently this
action was taken as a precaution
against the feeling of indifference,
prevalent in large groups of students
unknown to each other, which might
easily allow cheating to proceed un-
In making this provision, however,
the Council has overlooked the funda- i
mental principle that a successful
honor system must be sufficiently,
backed by student sentiment to insure
its enforcement. If some of the ex-
aminations taken by a student are
conducted under a system which ap-1
parently places a premium upon,

A review, by Esther Merrick.
The third May Festival concert pro-
vided, if not a notable afternoon,
certainly a pleasing one. Albert
Spalding, sandwiched in between can-
tatas and carnivals, presented a pro-i
gram of highly polished playing, lack-
ing inspiration perhaps, even colour
occasionally, but uniform in brilliance
of technique and charm of interpreta-
tion. Mr. Spalding is a conscientious
violinist; he works for what he gets,
and if he did not exactly transport
one, certainly he disappointed no one.
The 'Overture' to "The Impressario"
by Mozart as well as the 'Concerto in
D Major' by the same composer were!
remarkable for their great flexibility
of tones and excellent first harmonics.
All of his numbers were characteriz-
ed by exquisite gradations of tone and
a sympathy in rendition which made
for truly profound musical expression.
Then there was a splendid presen-
tation of Saint-Saens' 'Carnival of
Animals' by Misses Elizabeth Davies
and Ethel Hauser, pianists, accom-
panied by the orchestra. The "Carni-
val' is a sort of epic-cartoon set to
