acute and progressive, are actually
exiling to Siberia, the terror of po-
litical prisoners for ages, all the Zion-
ists that they can find to arrest.
It is rather cruel irony when we re-
member that the exile of political)
prisoners to the horrors of northern
Siberia was one of the principal blots
on the record of the Czars when the4
Communists came in power. Public
opinion the world over was scandal-
ized by that policy; yet scarcely eight
years after overthrowing the regime
the Communists themselves, under the}
influence of a motivating Jewish bloc,
stoop to the same level, except that
the exiles of the Czars were danger-
ous men, and the Zionists are harm-
If Russia ever expects to take its
place among the nations of the world,
or expects to be recognized by the
United States, it is time that that
country was showing signs of civiliza-
tion. The Czars were imperious, they
were overthrown; the Communists
are intolerant, they are not over-
thrown, yet.
With the state department working
on relations with China, Nicaragua,
1 Mexico, and South American coun-
tries, the foreign affairs of the gov-
Kernment are attracting more attention
than at any time since the World war
settlement problems. A reply to the
IBritish note on China which urged
more liberal dealings with that coun-
try is now being prepared. With the
New Year, the Mexican land and oil
laws have gone into effect, and the de-
partment is waiting for an "overt
act" on which definite protest against
their retroactive and confiscatory na-
ture may be made.
Probably the most active issue at
the present time involves the presence
of American marines in Nicaragua,
where the state department has rec-
ognized the Diaz government against
the Sacasa forces which have been
t recognized by Mexico. In the mean-
time, the Tacna-Arica dispute ir

A Book Review By Timothy Hay
This is a novel filled with the at-

road. It is permeated with a spirit
of adventure, love, hate, faith, hope,I

many years of reviewing for this

before been accorded one so young. I

Peru and Chile turn over their rights

United States-Panama treaty under


With the attack of an infuriated
Chinese mob on the British conces-
sions at Hankow resulting in the sur-
render of the district to the Cantonese
troops, the Chinese, situation has
again become serious. After the sit-
uation seemed somewhat improved
with the Cantonese forces apparently
eager to set up a national govern-
ment, the radical wing of the partyl
disappointed by the 'refusal of Eng-
land and other world powers for im-
mediate recognition, has moved the
masses of Chinese to radical action.
Following the activities of the mob,
the Chinese presented an ultimatum
to the British demanding "custody of
the British marines alleged to have
fired on Chinese crowds, indemnities
for deaths and injuries, immediate
cessation of all hostilities, withdrawal
of the British forces, and an apology
to the nationalistic party."
Despite her recent adoption of a
more liberal policy toward China,
however, it is practically certain that
England will not surrender the ma-
rines who fired on the mob. They
were protecting British citizens and
property in a locality which by
treaty right was legally conceded to
their occupation. On the other hand,
it is possible that England will with-
draw from the territory and perhaps
indemnify the Chinese for the lives
lost. The latter move, of course,
would demand just retribution by the
Chinese for the damage which the
mob did in the British concession.
Whether they realize it or not, it
is quite unfortunate for the Chinese,'
as for the rest of the powers con-
cerned, that such disorders continue.
By the recent conference of world!
powers including a Chinese repre-
sentative, it was agreed that recog-j
nition would be granted as soon as a
stable government was established.
Certainly, promotion of the present
conditions does not evince the pres-
ence of a stable government. With
America continuing her policy of
friendship toward the Near East, and
with England leading other nations to
a more liberal policy toward China,
it seems that the Chinese would co-
operate in bettering the conditions of
their country. Settlement of its
problems demands sound thought and

which Panama assumed obligations
contrary to previous obligations as a
member of the League of Nations may
very likely be subject to discussion in
the Senate.
In these issues which really involve
the Monroe Doctrine, the League of
Nation's, and America's attitude in
the Orient, President Coolidge has
sought the support of the country for
the administration policies. In most
cases, it isprobable that the judgment
of the State department could be wise-
ly followed. However, it should not
necessarily be trusted implicitly. If
discussion of the various siuations
will bring a better solution withoutj
paralyzing action it should be wel-
comed. In working out the solution
to the present problems as well as
any in the future, the best policies
humanly available should be sought.
In less than five weeks examinations
will be over, and with the thousands
who pass will be included hundreds
who fail, some of them completely.
Many collegiate careers will be blast-
ed at the outset, for by far the larger
number of failures will be freshmen:
and the lures of college life, that
glorified existence that offers distrac-
tions for every day and night of the
week, will have taken its toll again.
To many of those expelled this fail-
ure will be complete. Many will never
attempt to go on in university work.
Many of them will be upper classmen,
for, as Dean Effinger says. each class
has its peculiar requirements, and
some fall behind at every milestone
of the college course. Failure is a dis-I
mal thing at best, and when it is large
scale failure, as it will be here again
this winter, it is more dismal still.
Nothing that it worth obtaining is
