A COMUNITY CREST
While the Student Council is search-
ing about the campus for a bit of con-
structive work, during its rather in-
active winter season, the appointment
of a committee to study the feasibility
of inaugurating a Community Chest
here might be well worth the effort
expended. The plan, it seems, was
suggested to the Council two years
ago, but for want of proper attention,
it never materialized.
The Community Chest idea has been
gaining popularity in municipalities
throughout the country for the past
few years. Its advintages, in the re-
duction of all charity drives to a sin-
gle annul campaign, and the appor-
tionmen4 f the, funds received on a
budget 'ystem, are quite obvious.j
Although the financial drives on the
campus this year have been compara-
tively few, there will be several more
before next) June. Students naturally
tire of being solicited for funds in on
campaign after another. If it isn't
the Student Christian Association, it's

traveling expenses for the Varsity,
cheerleader; and if it isn't that, then
Christmas seals are expected to be
purchased.
It is reasonable to believe that the
average student would gladly give as
much as seventy-five cents or a dol-
lar onice a year for charitable pur-
poses if he can be assured that no fur-
ther solicitations will be made for
another year
MEX WAN WAR CLOUDS
The Mexican-American war clouds,
alarming to many recently and the
cause of much buzzing of diplomatic
wires, are vanishing. Those close to,
the administration think armed hostili-
ties highly improbable unless radical
changes take place in the present sit-
uation. The only possibilities of real
trouble are in the oil and land law
disputes, attempts of President Calles
to interfere further in Nicaragua, or
a revolution in Mexico .itself.I
The willingness of President Calles
to submit the oil and land law dis-
putes to The Hague for settlement in-j
dicates a willingness to arbitrate. AI
desire for amicable settlement by
both the American oil interests and i
the Calles government would justify
a declaration that hostilities will notj
take place over these controversies.!
The intimated threat of the withdraw-!

be hastened. The Sacasa revolution1
is being snuffed out by Admiral Lati-
mer and the Diaz government pro-.
tected. Those clouds are vanishing.
The only serious possibility of trou-
ble is that of a revolution in Mexico
itself. There are Mexicans ready *o
start a fight if they think they can get
something out of it. Among these are
Rene Capristan Garza, Adolfo de la
Huerta, Raoul Madero, and other pro-
jessional revolutionists. If a revolu-
tion should break out with much
greater proportions than those of any
of the contemporary ones, the United
States government would undoubtedly
police and protect American interests.
Yet this last possibility is not con-'
sid;ered immed atcly dangerous. The
war clouds seem to be blowing over.
The administration has had its say.
The Calles government has replied.
The administration seems inclined,
barring any radical changes in the
present situation, to let it go at that.

One of their best tricks is parking

POWER FOR T1lESENATE
In an important decision relating
to the investigating powers of theI
Senate, which have lately been men-
aced by the refusal of witnesses to tes-
tify, the Supreme court unanimously
affirmed the right of that body to com-
pel the appearance of witnesses beforet
its committees, to force the produc-
tion of books and records, and to pun-t
ish recalcitrant,witnesses if they re-
fuse to testify.
This opinion, which reverses thej
verdict of an Ohio federal districtl
judge, will bring Mal S. Daugherty,
who refused to testify in the oil con-
spiracy investigation in 1924, before
the bar of the Senate for punishment.I
More than, in any action against
Daugherty, or the others who have I
refused to testify, however, the sig-
nificance of this decision, lies in its
support of the senatorial power "to
conduct investigations and exact tes-
timony from witnesses for legislative
purposes." Though generally attract-
ing little public attention, this phase
of the Senate's activities is one of its
most important ones. By it, the Sen-I
ate keeps a watchful eye upon theI
execution of all government work.
The power of investigation is a con-
stant threat against mal-administra-
tion and fraud. It is altogether proper!
as well as important, then, that the
Senate possess the power to make its1
investigations effective.(

LEGAL MURDER AGAIN
To The Editor:
I take issue with the views express-
ed ik your editorial on what you call
"legal murder." As I see it, the state
represents organized society. Now
when a man is held up in his place of
business, and threatened with a gun,
does he not have the right to shoot
the robber, if he is able, in self-de-
fense? Now suppose the business
man does try to defend himself, but is
shot and killed by the robber; it is not
society's right, nay, duty, to step in
and take the life of the murderer in
its own self-defense? You might say1
-better put him in the penitentiary;1
but our actual experience with par-
dens and paroles has been far from
encouraging t> such a policy.j
Let us return to the scene mention-j
ed before. After shooting the busi-j
ness man, the robber makes his get-1
away . He is then sought by the police,
and every policeman who comes near
the robber risks his life, for the rob- I
ber, being desperate, often shootsi
those who try to arrest him. When thei
