er stadium, and for a monumental ex-
pansion of the program of "athletics
for all."
There are other things innumerable
things, for which the past University
year will long be remembered by
those who took part in it. It has been
a great year,-perhaps not the great-
est, but there have been none greater.
With millions of orientals and hun-
dreds of thousands of Americans
caught in the narcotic traffic, it has
been no phenomenon, to critical ob-
servers that attempts to regulate, pro-
hibit, or limit it have been discourag-
ing failures. Past attempts have been
nullified by the organized efforts of
those who have capitalized on human
degeneracy. China heroically deter-
mined to thwart this blight a few
years ago, suffered, then reverted to
its old vicious habit. Most of the ef-
forts made in the past have been
similar to locking the stable after the
horse is gone. Endeavor has been
concentrated on the attempted cure
E of hopeless addicts rather than in
preventing the spread of the traffic
among the young. It has now been
seen that the only way the evil can
be wiped out will be by a process of
universal education; indeed, this is
the only way that deepseated social
evils can be eradicated.
As a result, there will take place
in Philadelphia within a few weeks
a world-wide conference, representing
the nations concerned, for Itlie pur-
pose of concentrating activity and co-
operation in the extension of pre-
ventative narcotic education. It is
expected that while this conference
will make no immediate and direct
effort to influence international legis-
lation, the benefits coordinating
world endeavor will be invaluable,
and a distinct step taken toward the
eventual solution of the monstrous
evil. With thousands of heroin ad-
dicts in every one of our large cities
and millions of orientals caught in
the clutches of the opium habit, the
task of abolishing the drug evil is a
gigantic one. But it is to the credit
of those setting out to curb it that
they are fully aware of their tre-
mendous job. Perhaps the Philadel-
phia conference will be the beginning
of the distant end.

our plunge into the great unknown,
the finals. And so to you we give our

finals, and may the instructor happen

Since it is necessary that we study
for our various finals, we have de-

A review, by Leston Whitehead.
"The Grand Duchess and the
Waiter", from the French of AlfredI
Savoir, is a gay whimsical bit of
nonsense, as Gallic as "La Vie Paris-
ienne" and embodying the same
subtlety and finesse of expression as
that widely-read periodical. The
plot is too well-known to bear repeti-
tion; the lines are Continental-dan-
gerously so in places; and the cast is

permitted, their administration
has been successful.
The school year of 1925-26 is rapidly
drawing to a close. Within a fort-
night, the "grave and revered" seniors
will be in the midst of Commencement
week, and then, with the best wishes
of the University, they will depart to
find their respective tllaces on ,the
ladder of success. The graduating1
class cannot be called the best thatj
has ever left these halls, yet it is in-
ferior to none. And as they -leave,
these seniors can look in -retrospect
at this last, their final year.
The year has witnessed the inaug-
uration of a new administrative head,
a man with vision and executive abil-
ity who shows promise of reaching
the Utopian educational heights to
which the late President Burton
aspired. And the year has witnessed,
also, a lessening of faculty resentment;

appear to me to be groundless and
unwarranted attacks against the

To call France the "Arch-offender

League of Nations which we have

England have done elsewhere. The

The French problem should be con-

Some of us adopt that sickening
"better than thou" attitude toward un-

losses in blood and treasure (all that
is forgotten now) and had been re-

As to the debt, it is a characteristicj
remark, that of "agonizing cries of
