will aid in throwing light on the story'
of our country, because of lack of
knowledge of the value of such evi-
dence and because much of it is not
in the proper hands.
The American Historial association
is conducting a drive to increase its
endowment from $50,000 to $100,000
so that it may continue to enlarge its
national services and preserve what .
material it can obtain. The association
proposes to use its increased endow-
ment for:
"A wider dissenination of historical
information and better teaching of
history in the schools.
"The conservation of historical
manuscripts, including thetpublic ree-
ords of our nation and of the idvd
ual states.
"Preservation through publications
of important historical manuscripts.
"Grants to scholars for the expenses
of research essential to the great con-
tributions of history to human knowl-
"Expert service to the government.
"Cooperative research in te his
torical backgrounds of such problems
as those, of international relations,
of American business, and of agri-
culture and rural life."
It is truly a worthy institution
,which is doing service to the country
and to the people, and all-those who
have the opportunity shoula feel
proud to contribute.
Preservation of our forests and
the dire results that will follow the
depletion of our wooded lands, have
been brought to the attention of lthe
Americans .so much since tIe, Inaug-
uration of the policy of conservation
by Theodore Roosevelt .that few peo-
ple now think of itin the serious.,light
that the situation demands.
It is a subject very intimate to the
everyday life of every citizen-some-.
thing that has to do with the sustain-
ing of an importnt group of indus-
tries which give support. to more than
six per cent of the population of the
country.; It nvolves ,te productive
use of nearly one-third of the ldand and
many sections of the country are al-
ready seriously, impoverished and have
been set, back many years In their
industrial development because, of the
destruction of their chef :resource.
Further, at present, scarcity and high
prices of certain classes of raw ma,
terial ,are seriously affecting ,indus-
tries and consemers.
It has been said that unless some
attempt at conservation is ,made, that
within ten years there will not be
enough wood pulp to furnish paper
for all the newspapers in the country.
That is expressing a.serious situation
in rather startling fashion; but it is
just as true las the less. dramatic evils
'that are measurably .felt in flood
damage, irregularity of water flow,
andincreased erosion.
The risis that arose when it was
discovered during the late war that
America was suffering, from lack of
timber should be a warning. The fate
of countries like Japan is a constant
reminder. Desolate areas in upper
Michigan exist as a frightful example.
And yet America takes but passive
heed of the calamity. There is but
one solution to the problem ad that
is a careful and systematic policy of
conservation, including the preserva-
tion of already standing trees and
yearlings, and the replanting of cut-
over areas.

This number of ROLLS Is dedi-
cated to the students, and thus is
unique in being the only thing
connected with football games
that is done in the interests of
those poor study slaves.j
(This interview was secured from
Jerry Milletson, ticket distributor at
Arizona School of EducatIon. ROLLS
is thankful that no such situation ex-
ists here.--Editor's Note.)
"I would like nothing better than
to give every student a half dozen
seats on the fifty yard line, but speak-
ing frankly, the public must be
served," said Mr. Milletson.
When the question was pressed he
said, "Well, all there is to It is that
I collect all the tickets that are re-
turned by alumni because of the seats
not being in view of the playng field,
and pass them out to students. Thata
why students can't get their tickets
until so near game time. Also, I
sometimes don't have enough tckets
returned to supply all the students."
Although students cannot be aomii
modated at all of tile games nextyear,
in the new stadlnim, there will be one
great homeoomng -day when they
again may see their team in action.
The Athletic association feels that
students are interested in rootba1
and therefore has set aside the X. S.
C. game, and will guarantee each stu-
dent one seat. .
One proposed remedy for the stu-
dent ticket situation fell through when
it was found that the telescopes pro-
vided by the astronomy department
for use at the games next year had
several defects:
1. They were not equipped to pene
trate the obstruction of feathers in
ladies' hats.
2. They had no periscope attach,-
ment to look around the corner of
sections of the stadium.
3. You couldn't see through them,

At Minnesota they have found the
system. For the Michigan g ne they
sold 2,000 tickets for steam heated
seats on top of the snow banks piled
in the corners of the stadium wheni
the field was cleared off.

"The Athletic association is receiv-
ing entirely too much criticism for a
thoroughly dishonest system of ticket
distribution," is the opinion of Oscar,

wonder horse, an authority on inter-
national politics. "The solution to,
the situation 'is very clear, however,"'
he continued, "for if all football games
were abolished there would be no un-
fair ticket distribution.
"Personally I have nothing to say,"
Oscar said, "for I am a non-resident,
non-taxpayer, non-student, non-sup-
porter of the University, and non-
everything, and I always get seats at.

Humanity in 'general seems to bej
perfectly astounded at its own con-
summate intelligence. One can hear
any day discussions of the unenlight-
ened superstition of the ages that
preceded us; of their belief in sins;
of their fanaticism; and then we, with
an air of supercilious superiority, turn
away and thank God and our ownj
supreme intelligence that we are bet-
ter than they.
Let us transplant the scene three
hundred years in the future. The scene
is a history class studying the dark
ages of 1926 or thereabouts. After
being .hocked at our immorality, our
dishonesty, our poor governments, our
irrationality, and our neglected edu-
cational systems, the professor cites
as the crowing disgrace to our good
name the mist of superstition which
surrounded. our intelligent, age.
He produces irrefutabineevidence from
our daily newspapers to the effect that
great colonies of our society gathered,
and with the blind belief that they
were following some immortal deity,
gave up their property, their beings,
and their very wills to this fakir. He
then would proceed to cite other in-
stances of our unenlightenment, tell-
ing his class how we had theosophists
and spiritualists; and the class would
laugh in lusty outbursts at such an
unbelievable ignorance.
"If there was any one thing more
than all others that led to the decay
of this promising civilization which
existed in 1926 it was the almost di-
vine superstition of the people of that
age," the professor concludes; and
with a shuffle of-feet the class hurries
out to send;its ticket applications for
the great intercollegiate debate con-
This mythical professor would be
wrong, of course, as professors so
often are. For superstition is not the
leading cause for our decay; it is
merely the cause that will be most
fully expospd by the present docu-
ments for the benefit of the future
scholars. Nevertheless, the statement
is-true; we are in an age of super-
stition. If this era is less so than
some preceding stage it does not show
our enlightenment, it merely shows
their immense backwardness. Insti-
tutions such as the House of David
have no excuse for existence, even
though they are good commercial
propositions for Benton Harbor, and

To The Editor:
I hate to reawaken a - dead matter,j
but I feel that I must spring to the
defense of a classmate. I refer to the'
storms of protest pro and con which
have been raging in regard to Joan of
Like the senior, I was gullible
enough to stay through the whole per-
formance, but I most thoroughly agree
with your freshman correspondent'
that it was "God-awful."
To begin with there is the obvious
impossibility of presenting an epic
like Joan with a cast of five or six
actors,, and two chairs, a table, and a
tree for scenery. But added to this,
the actors were rather uniformly
poor. I will not say anything about
Clara Clemens mainly because she
didn't deserve it. 'There was one gen-
tleman, however, who played in turn
an English captain, a French leader,
etc., whom we immediately named the
"laughing jackass." He mernced it.
The principle trouble was that this
version of "Joan" (a rather poor!
adoption of Mark Twain's book) was!
highly melodramatic. A good cast
could have toned it down to nearly
some semblance of human form, but
this company worked it to death,
ranting and raving and appealing to
God in a manner highly approved for

We students have been weeping andI

ball games, but the faculty is in the
' same stands. How can the AthleticM

their students? If things go on like
they are now the professors will have -
