A PROSPEROUS UNION
It is indeed gratifying, to observe
that the general condition of the
Union, from the standpoint of profit
and loss, nQW appears to be more
sound than it has for some time. A
cursory analysis of the facts at once
reveals the why and wherefor of the
According to the financial report
for the first five months of the college
year, September 1 to February 1, the
total gain in the operation of the
building is considerably greater than
that of a year ago. Whereas only
three departments in the building-
the billiard .roon, soda bar, and
dances-show a loss, a gain over the
same five mnth s a year ago is indi-
cated in the eight other departments,
namely, the dining room, tap room,
lodgings, swimining pool, barber shop,
bowling alley, cigar stand, and theater
The loss in the billiard department
is attributed by Union officials, tp the
general decrease everywhere in the
popularity of pool and billiards. The
deficit in the business of the soda
bar, which was' slight, was accounted'
for by an increase in the overhead in
that department as well as the poorer
attendance at dances as compared to
a year ago. The loss in the dances
themselves is believed to be the re-
sult of varying qualities in the or-
chestras of both years.
While it is undoubtedly a fact, as
the president of the Union stated the
other day when accounting for the
general financial improvement, that it
is due in a large measure to the in-
creased use of the building, by stu-
dents during the fall, the efficiency of
the business management, as demon-
strated to date, is certainly worthy
of consideration and no little com-
THE GENTLEMAN FROM IDAHO
I; would seem that Chairman Borah'
of the foreign relations committee is
something .else besides a Senator. Not
being contented with his efforts to
hinder the administration activities inJ
his Senatorial capacity, it now comes
to light that he has been in direct
communication with President Calles
of Mexico relative to the oil contro-
versies. This fact is not merely evi-
dence of the foolishness of Mr. Borah,
ling in nature does not excuse him
from his diplomatic blunder. Stand-
ards of diplomatic practice, while
somewhat fixed, allow for consider-
able freedom but the gentleman from
Idaho seems to recognize no bounds.j

mittee quashed his proposed official

like to think it possible, it would be
