"Because business is big it is
not necessarily a menace., The
justification of big business is
that it serves the public more
efficiently than many small busi-1
nesses could d« in that particular
line. Higher wages and reduced
costs of products result from in-
creased organization in industry.
That is the secret of our success
in America. President Coolidge!
has pursued a clear, consistent{
course and has made it clear that
lihe will not interefere with legiti-
mate business merely because it
is big, but desires business and
industry, so far as it is possible,
shall work out their own prob-
lems provided they conform
strictly to law."-Secretary Mel-
lon in a radio address to the elec-
tric convention at Atlantic City.
In movements for the furtherance
of world peace, emphasis seems to
have been placed upon the creation

and adoption of arbitration boards
and covenants. Apparently, tittle
credence has been placed in the fact
that added security may be gained byj
increasing the use and efficiency of
the institutions already created. Al
reversal of this 'tendency, however,
may be seen in the suggestion made
to the drafting committee of the Ge-
neva disarmament conference that in-
creased powers to stop war be given
to the League of Nations.
Specif tally, the proposal provides
that the League council be authorized
to impose an armistice between bel-
ligerent powers as soon as a conflict
starts. This suggestion is very po-
tent in view of the terrible results
which were incurred during more
than four years of world conflict be-
fore an armistice was signed in No-
vember, 1918. Further proof of the
practicability of this scheme may be
seen in the quick settlemement of the
recent Greeco-Bulgarian conflict, in
which the parties ceased hostilities at
the request of the council.
It has also been aptly suggestedj
that action on the part of the League
should not require a unanimous coun-
cil vote, but that " the burden of
unanimity should rest rather upon;
the nation who pretends that an ag-
gression has not been committed. This
precaution would undoubtedly be1

One of the encouraging features of
the academic year now drawing to a
close has been the support and gen-
eral acceptance accorded the series
of Sunday convocations sponsored!
by the Student council. Concluding
its administration, the outgoing Coun-
cil will probably recommend that the.
services be continued next year and
leave for the decision of the new bodyt
just what kind of a program shall be
carried out.
Although considerable weight can
be given to the fact that the series
just concluded has been a success in
spite of the predictions of a few
cynics, the nature of a program for
1926-1927 is deserving of far more
than ordinary consideration. A failure
would bring to nothing the progress
already made. It must be remnem-
bered that the nine months of the
school year are crammed with varied
activity. When the football season
is over Christmas vacation follows,
and after that examinations. It is not
long until Easter week and then-
spring athletics. One cannot disre-
gard the realities, these factors must
be considered.
A convocation each Sunday of the
year would probably result in apathy
and indifference. Even a service twice
a month might seem too frequent for
success. The regular church-goers
among the students and faculty are
drawn, ordinarily, to the denomina-
tional churches. With these facts in
mind, it would appear that a monthly
convocation, concluded with a weekly
series in the month of May, would be
the most practical and successful pro-
gram. With infrequent Sunday serv-
ices and addresses by outstanding
men, the comprehensive program for
next year might be made as stimulat-
ing to interest in religion and re-
ligious thinking as the series of con-
vocations inaugurated by the Coun-
cil a month ago.

A review, by Robert Carson.
There is still an impression of open
tone scales, moods, close harmonies
and saxophones. The evening could
not help but be interesting, such a
Variety, such innovations and the
most fascinating of all, original com-
positions played for the first time.
The program consisted of two parts,
the first included selections of stand-
ard composers and the second, the
original works of Mr. Andrew Haigh's
In the opening group, Miss Saime
Mouhidden's playing easily stood out
as the best feature. The Chopin
"Etude No. 4" was well rendered.
There is much octave work, with the
right hand carrying the theme and a
weaving in and out of chords in the
left hand. The "En Automne" by
Moszkowski was well adapted to bring
out her technical skill.
But the real treat came in the last
part of the program. There was an
air of expectancy and somewhat of
doubt as to what the reslts would be.
The modern trend in musical develop-l
ment was well illustrated in several
of these numbers. Of the piano selec-
tions, played by the composers, Miss
Elizabeth Davies' "Nocturne" was the
most delightful. In this selection she
has used the whole tone scale to good
advantage. Mr. Joseph Ellis' "Im-
promptu" also deserves p'raise.
Mr., Royden Susumago's composi-
tions, a violin and piano number,
"Berceuse" and "Moods," a song for
a tenor voice, which included a violin
obligato were somewhat striking,
ecstatic and moody. Mr. Charles Wol-
cott's three selections for the unusual
combination of two saxophones, violin,
trombone and piano, triumphed in the
realm of the fantastical. The original
idea included a trumpet instead of aI
violin which would have added a great
deal in producing the proper effect.
One thinks of Gershwin or of a white-
man orchestra when listening to, this
group. Only one schooled in "Jazz"
could write anything of this sort. It
consisted of queer four part harmonies,
unique themes first played by the
saxophones then the trombone. I
