slightly injured students, and many

The incidentagain brings to light
the foolhardiness of such conduct.
IOutbreaks of this nature are no credit
whatever to' young men of America
who are presumably engaged in the
quest of culture and knowledge.
IN THE LEAGUE
Though the United States is offi-
cially no more a member of the
League of Nations now than she was
in 1922, the participation of her duly
accredited representatives has been
steadily increasing since that time.
While a few years ago, the State{
department refused to answer League
notes, communications now go back
and forth quickly with the utmost
courtesy and cooperation on the part
of the Washington government, ac-
cording to an official statement by the
Secretariat. Reports from Geneva
also indicate that the United States
probably has as many delegates there
as any other nation. With her rep-
resentatives intending to participate
in a dozen of the League conferences
scheduled for this spring, it is only
America's unofficial position which
keeps her from leadership in both
this association and in the World
court.
Though the Senate may never ratify
the entrance of the United States to
the League of Nations, it remains
evident that this country cannot di-
vorce herself from the affairs of the
rest of the world; but must cooper-
ate in solving problems which tran-
scend national boundaries.
A TARDT COMPENSATION
Twenty seven years ago Private
John R. Kissinger, knowing that if he
contracted the disease his chances
for recovery would be one in twenty,
offered his serviced to Dr. Walter H.
Reed of the Yellow Fever commis-
sion, that experiments might be car-
ried, on to learn if the mosquito car-
ried the germ of the disease. Suffer-
ing from illnesses and disease brought
on by that heroic service has resulted
in his being an invalid for twentyI
years.
While Kissigner has seen the
'scourge of the tropics eradicated as
a partial result of his service in the
Yellow Fever commission's work, he
has received practically no compensa-
tion for his lifetime of illness. For-
tunately a campaign was started last'
week to provide funds for him as a'
tardy reward for his sagrifice. It is
the least that can be done to pay the
debt.

OPTIMISM OR CYNICISM
Former President Obregon, who may
be considered the spokesman for the1
Calles government has been quoted'
recently' as stating that the time was
not propitious for an amicable agree-
ment with the United States, that the.
friendly relations necessary to the
successful' unctioning of such anj
agreement were lacking, andthat it
would be inadvisable to attempt to
frame such a treaty now.
There is no doubt about the truth
of such a statement. With the strain-
ed relations now existing, it would be
almost impossible to reach a suitable
agreement. Just as long as the Calles
government confiscates land which has
not been "grabbed" from the Mexicans
and refuses to pay for it, just that
long will those strained relations ex-
ist. On the other hand, dollar diplo-
macy has not been absent in our own
policies towar'd Mexico.
The hops for a speedy settlement;
of the oil and land law disputes seems
as far off as ever, indeed, the opti-
mistic hopes of a few weeks ago have
changed to an attitude of cynicism!
and. indifference. And as long as both
parties refuse to yield anything to the!
other, just tht ulong will any rea-
sonablo settlement be only a possi-
bility and not a reality.j

American legislatures have been 1

For this eason as well as for theE
appreciation of administrative effi- I
ciency shown,' the New York state<
legislature should be commended for
submitting two constitutional amend-

"SOLID"
To The Editor:
In your editorial of March 25, "The
Solid South," concerning the, flogging
Af a Georgia Baptist preacher, you
seem to assume that all floggers go
unpunished in the South, and that
such things are typical in that sec-,
tion. Furthermore, at the close of the
editorial there is a wholly uncalled
for slur upon the intelligence of the
South..
Let me call your attention to a few
facts: In that same Georgia last
fall, Judge Reed gave nine floggers
prison sentences varying from short
terms to life imprisonment; in Texas,
in 1924, a gang met a similar fate.
Surely everyone is forced to admit
that no more disgraceful atrocities
have ever taken place in America
than those of recent years in Herrin,
Illinois; yet would it be fair t'o edi-
toralize these crimes under the cap-
'tion "The Solid North"?
One who casts slurs" on the intel-
ligence of a person or section should
be very careful of his grounds: So,
one who thinks to condemn Southern 1
education and the intelligence arising
from that education shows clearly
that the basis for his condemnation
is, perhaps, the South of fifty years
ago, but certainly not the South of
today with such institutions as Duke
university, North Carolina university,
Vanderbilt university, the University
of Texas, and other which compare
quite favorably with Mivchigan or
other northern universities.
Again, to assume, as many do, that
all of the Fundamentalist opposition
to scientific teaching and freedom of
thought is confined to the South is toI
show ignorance of the facts. Notej
the attempts recently made in Minne-
sota and North Dakota to introduce
anti-evolution bills into, the legisla-i

A review, by Vincent Wall.
It is seldom that the opportunty
comes to this campus of juging a
play which has not been molded into
set lines of public opinion by the pro-
fessignal press. Last night the audi-
ence sat in as critical contemplation
of Thornton Wilder's enigmatical opus
as any of the serious-minded members
of New York's select fraternity of
first-nighters. In choosing "The
Trumpet Shall Sound" Comedy Club
has selected a play which has all the
entertaining aspects of a puzzle pic-1
ture with half the pieces missing-1
but at least it is a production that
will form a most interesting bit for
the post-prandial discussions of
metropolitan dramatic columns.
As a drama"The Trumpet Shall
Sound" is one of the most unique
presentations ever to be given in a
local theater. It wanders through
four acts of decrepit symbolism, un-
intelligible expressionism and per-
verted impressionism, but creates a
most interesting effect. The enter-
prise is more than interesting to both
the pallid scholar of the drama andI
the casual theater-goer. For the for-
mer the enterprise is both adult and
intellectually exciting; and for the
latter there are a series of careful
studies and interesting dramatic pic-
tures.
Because, if a great deal of the
meaning was somewhat obscured with
certain self-consicous abstractions,E
there were other features that re-
deemed the play for what it is: an
excellent and experimental drama,)
capably' done. The cast consisted en-I
tirely of types ranging from a shop-
lifter, an ascetic old maid, and a
consumptive prostitute to an ancient
half-wit, a fanatic prophet of some
cult or other, and an undertaker act-
ing as a sort of raisonneur to the
whole business. With the acting andI
direction there is scarcely a fault to
find. Robert Wetzel as the under-;

anageousyDrougn out throughl
the organist's gareful execution of a
powerful theme. In the following
selection the other extreme was reach-
ed with equal effectiveness through
the rendering of soft, muffled peals
ftom hle delicate, high tones that only
an organ can create.
In Joseph Bonnet's rythmical Ro- I
mance, Guy Filkins played the piece
of his master, of whom he once stu-
died in Paris, with a dainty, whimsical
mood reflective of the peculiar nature
infused by the composer. The capti-
vating rhythm swings throughout the
entire selection in a variety that is
extremely pleasing to the ear. Of
Silver's famous Rhapsody the most
entertaining movement was the quiet I
passage that trailed off into flute-like
tones which seemed almost to dance
with lightness. It is during such a
passage when one might well .imagine f
the soul ascendations that only art- !
ists are said to experience.
Widor's popular Serenade contains
the necessary qualities of popularity
-and entertaining melody and a
theme of quaint beauty. Of Wagner's
late opera Tristan and Isolde the or-
ganist rendered the Liebestod-the
love that lasts beyond the grave-
with the brilliance of an orchestra-
tion, that so characterizes all of Wag-
ner's compositions. And that is the
way Wagner should be played. The
organist, through this rendation, dis-
proved the modern belief that Wagner
is on the wane.
THE RESERVE BAND CONCERT
A reiiew, by Sherwood Winslow.
Presenting a concert which honored'
Ludwig van Beethoven, whose death
a century ago is being observed by
musical organizations, the Reserve
band, directed by Nicholas D. Fal-
cone, gave their annual program forI
the student body, last night in Hill
auditorium. Opening with Beethoven's!
"Minuet in G" the Reserve musicians
gave 11 iumbers which included col-
lege marches, and selections from
operas, presen ting a rather heavyI
program, for a college band.

Prince

Albert

WHEN my father was in college, "Put that in
your pipe and smoke it!" was considered snappy
conversation. I'm ready to take this old line
literally when the talk centers around Prince
Albert. Because P. A. makes two of what I
like in a pipe.
All wise-cracking aside, P. A. is the money
when it comes to deep-down satisfaction in a
smoke. It's got everything! Cool as the trail
of the ice-man across the kitchen. Sweet as
vacation. Fragrant as a pine forest.
Think up your own similes. You'll write tiem
all in the column headed "Superlative Degree"
when you learn the joys of a jimmy-pipe and
Prince Albert. If you don't know this grand old
smoke, come around to my room and I'll give

P. A. is sold everywhere in
