With the nationalist troops advanc-
ing .toward- Pekin from the Yangtze
valley, foreign powers may soon find
themselves faced by the same condi
tions, .particularly as they regard the
welfare of their nationals, which they
have experienced with the Cantones
capture of Shanghai and the surround-
ing territory.
Though Gen. Chiang Kai-shek, the
Southern commander, has attempted
to oust the radicals from his forces,
any foreigners in the districts being
captured by the Cantonese will run
the risk of being mistreated by the
soldiers. The only safe, practical pre-
caution seems to .lie in evacuation
of the endangered area. Tientsin, a
coast port easily accessible to naval
craft, has alredy been suggeited as a
concentrating center similar to that
now maintained at Shanghai for the
central area.
If tire Cantonse troops continue to
advance, the 'United States should not
delay in giving its nationals proper
warning. If s 'advised, its citizens in
turn could do no better than profit by
the inconvenience and danger caused
by the delayed evacuation of Amer-
icans from the Yangze valley. j
Michigan students are indeed for-
tunate in being eligible for competi-
tion in the Intercollegiate Current
Events contest, conducted by the New
York Times when it is considered that
Chicago is the only other university
not located in the East which is on the
Eccreited list of colleges and univer-
sities. The second annual contest will
be held in the near future preliminary
to the so-called national competition.
A torough knowledge of current
events is recognized t'oday as being
as valuable as that of any university
course. A precise reading of reput-
able newspapers each day is the only
preparation necessary. It is the aim
of the contest to bring forth intel-
ligent answers to questions concern-
ing the prominent events of the world
which have occurred during the past
year. It resolves itself into a test of
careful newspaper ,reading
Last year 28 students of the Uni-
versity entered the competition-a
small representation considering, the
number of students on the campus.

Ten years ago yesterday the head-c
lines of every newspaper in the coun-a
try emlblazoned the news that the
United States had formally declaredc
war upon Germany. Preparations1
were gotten under way and the cam-
paign to end all wars, make the world
safe for democracy, and establish a
commonwealth of nations was en-
thusiastically begun. Everyone ral-I
lied to the cause.!
Today many of those ideals haveV
been scouted as impractical in thet
cynicism which naturally followsi
such a conflict. This has been espe-
cially true of the ideal of the Leaguef
of Nations in our own country. Thoser
who would particularly profit by itc
have declared themselves against thet
League and our Senate has backfired
on the World court. In the minds oft
a few, rtetrogression has taken the
place of progress in international
It is true enough that the world
has not gone very far in this respect
since the great conflict, but some,
definite advances have been made.
. The present day cynicism will give
way eventually to enthusiasm and the
day will come when this country will,
inevitably "gravitate" into the Leqague
and the ideal of ten years ago will
eventually triumph.
Commerical aviation on the conti-
nent has long been recognized as the
ultimate means of transportation, and
ten years of development have linked
together many of the larger cities in
a net work of privately operated air
transportation lines: Sky traffic in
Europe has become a systematised
reality and an integral part of every
day life ,but it has been left almost
wholly to European ingenuity to show
sleepy America the way to develop
her unquestionably greater resources
and facilities in this field.
America has finally begun to give
this matter a little attention and the
realization of the possibilities of
American commercial aviation has
centered itself around Detroit, which
is the logical geographic and econ-
omic location for its development on
a practical basis. Detroit, with more
than $5,000,000 invested in the manu-
facturing interests of its 36 aircraft
companies, has already assumed the
leadership in this inevitable change
in methods, of transportation, and
promises well to maintain its position
as the future center of commercial
and civil aviation in this country.
The recent craze for the saying
"ask me another" is nothing new.
Secretary Kellogg has been playing
that game with our f6reign relations
since the day of his appointment.
College students ar not as inter-
ested in how fast their car will go as
they are in getting it to go at all.
Pretty soon the "expenses" of the
)'Anti-Saloon league will exceed those
of the national government.
Anonymous communications will be
disregarded. The names of communi-
cants will, however, be regarded as
confidential upon request.

Four years. ago this summer in a

by giving the defendant, (a twenty-

sentence of 'guilty', bearing with it

South. Law is forgotten. Hooded

disgraced the law abiding citizens."
Will the day never come when the
South will forget its prejudices and
become civilized?
(As it would be written by a mem-
her of that "prejudiced Solid South,"
but one who hal some essential facts'
to call upon and not merely a fertile
editorial imagination.)
Due to constitutional limitations
and legal precedent, the inadequacy
of legal justice in the South quite
frequently leads to direct administra-

That night the sentenced man was

not by a wild frenzied mob ,but by a
quiet organized group which realized
that while the procedure was not of

technical farce that was being render-
ed under the name of legal justice.
NOTE-Is it not peculiar how dif-
ferent the tone of such an account
sounds when it is written by one who
fairly well understands the conditions
and knows the circumstances, and
when it is written by one who is
blessed with a fertile imagination, but
who is in blissful ignorance of all the
conditions and circumstances???
To The Editor:1
Recently I received a letter from
an interesting young native of Mex-
ico,- member ,of a very distinguished
family there, and one who our law
school is proud to claim as a recent
graduate. This keen observer of
events in his country and the world
writes, "I am sure you have been fol-
lowing by the press the terrible mess
in which our respective countries
have gotten. I do not believe that
there can be any fair minded person
who can approve of the attitude taken
by the U. S. You well know my way of
thinking has always been against the
Calles administration, but in the
present case dam with it with all my
heart. I have a deep affection to-
wards the American people, but I be-
lieve that your government is follow-
ing a policy unworthy of that people.
If you people up there knew of the
activities of the oil companies in Mex-
ico, I know you would not side with
them. They are hated by the whole
country, and the stand taken by Calles
against them has rallied around him
even his former enemies."
The events that are rapidly taking
place in the Far East have apparently
eclipsed the trying issues presenting
I themslves between the United States
and Mexico.
This. letter and the problem it sug-
gests bting to mind the great problem
of war and jeace and the vast re-
sponsibility that rests with our gen-
eration. Too many useless wars have
been fought in the world already.
Thanks to history, we have learned
much, but we are still human beings
and our apathetic nature has always
refused to keep time with the lessons
and examples that have been set be-
fore us.
Peace is' one of the noblest and
most gracious of the dreams which
haunt the spirits of men. Slowly, yes
very slowly, nations have been pre-
paring for the great step-jin fact
Tennyson's vision of a "Parliament of
Man, the Federation of the World"
has' at times seemed near fulfillment.
Mpre especially it seemed quite near
at the close of the international catas-
trophe in 1918. At that time an op-
px:tunity which may be longer in
coming again, lay at America's door,
to throw her weight on the side of

common service to mankind, but our
ward politicians, irreconcilables, cyn-
ics, workers, all, sank into unspeak-
able opposition and threw out the
very man whd was their only hope
and salvation-thus ended the career
of Woodrow Wilson and a chance for
a permanent peace in the world.
Today, as in every opportunity in
history, men blunder and betray this
destiny to man. Today we face a
great . crisis with Mexico, chaos and
destructive upheaval in China, Near
East 'intrigues and the old Western
strpggle fpr power of French ambi-
tion, English suspicion and German
revenge. Everywhere these vast po-
tentialities of war are fuming and
growing. Today we face the ghastly
reality of modern warfare.
One of the greatest- fundamentals
which nations, which are menaced.
with formidable conflict, need to heed
and appreciate, may be best be de-
scribed in the admonition which con-
fronted the pilgrim of old who went
to Delphi to inquire of the oracle con-
cerning things of the future-"Know
Nations mst be cautions and not fall#
into the fallacy which considers that
blated national pride and over-prais-
ed integrity has been dishonored be-
cause of this diplomatic note or that

number, sounded mechanical, no fault
of the band it is true but because the
selection itself was unsuited to that
type of arrangement. T~re "Bridal
Rose Overture" pleased particularly
as well as the two old favorites, "El
Capitan March" and "American pa-
trol." A cornet solo by Marshall
'Byrne revealed the rare skill of this
musician in running scales and as-
cending the heights usually shunned
by the cornetist. The Trombone
Quartet was less fortunate in that
both their number and the encore
were lacking in melody. The audi-
ence in fact became quite restless be-
fore the selection was over.
The audience appreciated most the
three vocal numbers by Mr. B. Lorain
Norton, z,"Trade Winds", "Hear Me,
Ye Winds and Waves", and "Ship
Mates O' Mine.", Mr. Norton has a
rich bass voice, the type that is al-
ways appealing to the majority of
people. His low tones in "Trade
Winds" were clear and musical prom-
ising a-19reat treat in the two more
selections to follow.

'the combined work of the class, in-

is as brillint as the purest diamond.
Otto Brown, a bass, appeared fre-

execution, all of which showed a lack
of deep cultivation. But of the so-

they deserved.
Mrs. Frederick Hull, a guest so-

than any other soloist through her

voice of breadth and length with a

ability through a tonality that was
