THURSDAY, MARCH 10, 1927
Night Editor--JAMES T. HERALD
RESPONSIBILITY
Responsibility for the recent affair,
between students and police officers
and its unpleasant results is very
evidently threefold, lying upon the
policemen, the theaters, and the stu-
dents.

It is unfortunate that the' President
cannot free himself from party con-
siderations even during a few weeks
of his extremely busy year.
HARVARD ADVANCES
Another interesting innovation is
about to be tested in the field of edu-
cation. Harvard university, it is be-
lieved, is considering a plan wherebye
classes and lectures will be suspended
for a period of several weeks beforee
mid-year and final examinations. Such
a move is designed primarily to give
students additional time for personal
investigation as well as more chance
to prepare for finals.I
Undoubtedly this plan holds possi-
bilities for improvement over the
present system of last minute cram-
ming. It would eliminate a hurried
review with the consequent mere su-
perficial knowledge of the subject,
and, by permitting a leisurely andi
thorough preparation, would tend to-~
ward deeper understanding of The
courses studied. The proposed
scheme would also bring greater fair-
ness, for every member of the under-t
graduate body would have an equal
amount of time for review, ths doing3
away with the necessity, in somei
cases, of attempting to prepare for,
four or five finals within several days.
It is conceivable that this new plan
might decrease the number of stu-
dents whose scholastic work is defi-
cient-if supported by the whole-
hearted co-operation of the students.
For therein lurks the danger of the
Harvard move.
American college youths have so
long been accustomed to a paternalis-
tic attitude on the part of the institu-
tions that they might fail to realize
the benefits accruing from the sug-
gested period of research at their own
will. In English universities, where
the plan is now in use, it has been
the product of gradual evolution, and
the students there have been brought
to a gradual understanding of the im-
portance of properly utilizing their
pre-examination respite. To suddenly
thrust such a change on the college
students of this country might raise
serious difficulties for the plan, and
possibly result in its failure. At any
rate the experiment, if carried out by
Harvard university, will be watched
with interest by the other colleges of
the country and may result in a gen-
eral move for amore initiative on the
part of the students, and less paternal-
ism on the part of the faculties.
CHAMBERLAIN'S POLICY
Expressing fear of a reaction that a
sudden break might cause in the pres-
ent European situation, Secretary Aus-
ten Chamberlain has definitely op-
posed the severance of relations be-
tween Great Britain and Russia. Sir
Austen, representing the government,
is favorable toward giving the Soviet
another chance, regardless of the re-
ported breaches of the trade agree-
ment signed in 1921. His stand has'
been endorsed by the House of Com-
mons.
For the past two years there has
been a rising tide of feeling in Eng-
land against the Soviet, due princi-
pally to minor infractions of the trade
agreement and statements of certain
English and Soviet officials express-
ing no particular love for the other
party of that agreement. British offi-
cial have charged the Soviet with
propaganda spreading and the Soviet
I has reciprocated with similar accusa-
tions. A breaking of diplomatic re-
lations was threatened with the re-
cent exchange of notes by the two
countries but with the definite policy

announced by Secretary Chamberlain,
which favors giving Russia another"
chance, the possibility is put further'
in the future at least.
While England's policy is not en-
tirely altruistic by any means, con-
siderable credit is merited for en-
deavoring to avoid a repercussion of
the European situation, which easily
might result in the reaction follow-
ing a severance of diplomatic rela-
tions with the Soviet. Of course, the+
purpose of the trade agreement of
1921 was for commercial advantage
and it will be dopbtless maintained
as long as possible. Yet as Secretary
Chamberlain pointed out there are,
limits to English patience. The twist-
ing of the lion's tail too often may re-
sult in something more than a roar.
FLYING RUMORS
It would seem that every day is
rumor day in Washington. One day
the Mexican war is about to begin
and the wires are buzzing. Another
day witnesses- a denial of it and state-
ments are issued with expressed hope
for a continuation of present rela-
tions, so the newspaper correspond-
ents have to write dull features on
congressional committees, and the
like, to fill up space.
The recall of the Mexican Ambas-
sador Tellez has given rise to manyf
speculations at the capital regarding

As has been observed previously,
the local officers exc'eeded their au-
thority in protecting the theaters, and
unnecessarily injured some of the
students and townspeople present. An
investigation and subsequent action
which would curb the indiscriminate
use of dangerous w lpons in the fu-
ture would certainly not be out of
place.
Likewise, the students are involved
in the affair as participants in the
recent as well as in previous theater
rushes. Every effort should be made
by the undergraduate body to remove1
the "hoodlum and destructive spiritl
from its members.1
In no small degree, the theaters l-
cated near the campus can also be
blamed for" their failure to realize
that they are in a college community.
Despite all comment that the under-
graduate center should be no differ-
ent than any other, the theaters might
well give free shows on occasions
when Big Ten championships are won.
Considering good will, the theaters
would lose little if they did not profit
by the arrangement, and, if handled
tactfully, their action would do much
to curb future difficulties.
PARTY TIES
Although it is not known just
where the President will spend his
summer vacation, it has been official-
ly stated that the summer White
House will be located somewhere in
the West or Middle West. It is re-
ported that the chief executive de-
sires "a hiealthful and pleasant cli-
mrte with lots of good fishing."
Among places considered are the
Black Hills regi'on, Wyoming, and
Michigan, from which he has received
invitations. The President has often
said that he believed all sections of
the country should have an opportun-
nity to see the chief executive and
this is reported to be one of the rea-
sons which prompted his decision to
"Go West."
However, the political speculators
have expressed different opinions on
the reason for the western vacation.
Among these are the strengthening of
