quired to accept a vast amount of su-
pervision while an education is forced
on them.
The sudden, appearance Af many
papers and magazines, published in
various places and composed of con-
tributions of men from many collegesI
causes one to question the real func-
tion of such publications and to in-
quire whether these things are not
running under false colors, catering!
to those outside undergraduate cir-
cles, in the guise of being the hither-
to "suppressed" pleas of undergrad-.
Things like this do little good for
the cause of higher education in Amer-
ica. They give the people on the out-
side who have little touch with col-
lege life the idea that college is a
great supression, and they cater to
those poor individuals within a college
who are always bewailing the lack of
a means of expression and yet who
would not recognize or be able to use
a means of expression if it were given
'to them.
These magazines may have a defi-
nite function. It may be that their
good lies in the fact that they will
acquaint one campus with the activi-
ties and opinions on other campuses.
In doing that they may fill a need.
But the benefits that they thus confer
will be' far outweighed by the harm
that they will do if the continue
these campaigns of "freedom" and
all the other trash by-words that are
acquainted with the new radicalism.

A strict ban on automobiles..pos-
sible night hours for fraternities and
men's rooming houses.. an espionage
system fo'r the detection and the an-
alysis of the student during his leisure
time and during the summer vacation
,.courses in concentrated judgment
hend wisdom..in short, absolute pa-
ternalism in American colleges. All
these are the pictures painted by
President Little in his speeches of the
past week 'before the students and
organizations of educators in con-
vention here.
Even granting that the University
has the right to do all of these things
and that the moves might further the
cause of actual education, it would
seem that the natural obstacles to the
plan make it impractical and almost
impossible of realization. There is, in
the first place, the question of admin-
istration and expense. The force re-
quired and the expenses involved in
the enforcement and execution would
cost many thousands of dollars. And
it would be difficult to get away from
the reforrgatory side of life, the danger
of moralizing .and idealizing, and the
painting of fanciful castles in the air.
Once started there would forever be
wrangling about't the actual results
of the work being done because of its
intangible nature and because of the
impossibility of ascertaining its suc-
Also there is the question of its
adaptibility to the American tempera-
ment. That temperament is essential-
ly one that prefers to succeed by its
own efforts, surmounting the difficul-
ties that may come, unfettered by out-
side pressure. The conditioning and
the restraint that has come into Amer-
ican life has been mainly that forced
upon it by the changing conditions of
modern civilization. Such paternal-
ism., while it may be logical in the
ideals of education, would have to
cope at once with this very human
factor of nature and temperament.
It is doubtful whether the very nature
of a people can be changed to conform
with the ideals of education or any
other endeavor,
On the whole it seems that the cir-
cle of prohibitions that would be
drawn around education would, in the

Mr. C. W. Barron recently told
President Coolidge that the United
States was approaching a new era in
which cycles of financial depression
would be entirely eliminated. This
was probably very true. Mr. Barron'
at least took the first step, a very
large one, toward making such a thing
a reality.
Most of the cycles of financial de-
pression which have been experienced
in this or any other country were
caused principally by the fact that
people thought they were inevitable.
They believed in that antiquated idea
that good things cannot last, and so
they prepared for the worst and got
exactly what they prepared for.
If people would only learn the bene-
fits of good constructive thinking and
realize that they will usually get
what they prepare fT-, things of this
type would be greatly decreased, even
though they were not entirely elimi-
American labor is well paid and
contented. The financial condition of
the country as a whole has never
been better. We have prosperity, why
not keep it? The way to lose it is to

To go sailing blindly on, with no care
for the future would be foolish, but
why cross bridges before we come to
While one must occasionally gasp
at the stupendous sums being spent
for the benefit of humanity in a social
way and occasionally thrill at the gi-
gantic organizations existing for the
aid of people generally, none the less
vital, worthwhile, and important to
the world's well being are little acts
of courtesy exhibited by strangers
1and friends to each other in the hum-
drum routine of every day life.
We venture to say, that just as
much happiness is put into the world
through minor acts of courtesy and
kindness as are evolved through all
our gigantic social welfare organiza-
tions. The cheerful smile of the thea-
ter usher, the pleasant voice of the
telephone operator, the greeting of
the postman, the hello of the traffic
cop, and the friendly nod of the boss
mean more to millions of people than!
all the work of the social foundations,
religious organizations, and civic as-
I sociations combined.
Many of the metropolitan newspa-
pers have published in recent year
special features under the name of
"The Inquiring Reporter", "Minute
Interviews" and the like, in which the
opinions of people selected at random
are gained on some subject. The
opinions are invariably off the subject
or reveal a startling ignorance of
things generally. Perhaps that is why
the topics are so often confined to
trifles such as the pleasures of motor-
ing, the benefit of exercise, and simi-
lar rot.
But in one respect these features
are helpful. The ignorance, preyu-
dices, and pre-conceived notions about
things expressed in these "interviews"
shows how contented the average
citizen is to let the world go by him
without attempting to know or under-
stand anything about it. They are

(Special to The Daily)
CHICAGO, II1.-What is expected to
effect drastic reforms in all advertis-
ing circles occurred today when Mr.
Gobert Slendersum, of collegiate and
Roquefort fame, signed up with aj
prominent national advertising com-
pany with head offices here this after-!
* * *s
An investigation conducted by The!
Daily last night in cooperation with
the Disassociated Press showed that
of the Big Six in the advertising game
in the country, four had called special
meetings of the directors and had
unanimously decided to immediately
suspend operations.
* * *
"This decision is final and perma-
nent," the president of one of the New
York firms declared over long distance!
last night. "When Mr. Slendersum
was in college there was no danger;
he was successfully selling nothing to,
merely college students. But when,
he succeeded in drawing Illinois
citizens to his cheese show the danger
was imminent. Now we cannot hope
to compete with any concern which
has secured his services."

Mr. McIntyre is bringing Earl Car-
roll's "Vanities" to the Whitney thea-
ter for one performance Thursday
night. The company is of doubtful
origin, probably the Night Club edi-
tion of last season (since the current
edition with the team of Moran and
Mack, Julius Tannen, Johnny Dooley,
and Dorothy Knapp is still at the Earl
I Carroll theater in New York). How-
ever, this (barring the opera and
Girls' play) is the nearest approach to l
eye and ear entertainment that ven-
tures beyond Detroit.
Speaking of the road ,probably the
most outstanding acheivement of the {
season in this direction is George C.
Tyler's revivl of Pinero's "Trelaw-
ney of tl e Wells," which will enter
the New ]Detroit Opera house for three
performances this week-Thursday
night, a Friday matinee and Friday
The cast is probably the most bril-
liant ever to take the road, and is
without question all-star: John Drew,
Peggy Wood, Helen Gahagan, Rollo
Peters, Mrs. Thomas Whiffen, O. P.
! eggie,...... and a dozen others.
There is nothing like a sentimental
evening in the theater, and a revival
of one of the most popular plays of aI
decade ago, with a cast such as Mr.
Tyler's should pack the house. I
Above all, Mr. Tyler must be in
sympathy with Mr. Arilss' standpoint
in the above articles. His motives
must be altruistic, for the salaries
should run into an unbelievable fig-
ure. It is the outstanding argument
for good drama, in conjunction with
excellent casting.
"La Sonnette d'Alarme" will be
given by members of Le Cercle Fran-
cais on Wednesday evening in the
Mimes theater. The play is one of the
most interesting from the standpoint
of the theater that the organization
has ever given, one of the few this
column can recommend without reser-
vation and mental finger crossing.
The tone and action are modern,
and have a sophisticated touch that
is in conception typically Gallic-and
the entire production smacksx of the
boulevard. This is somewhat a vio-
lation of previous policy, which has!
confined dramatic pabulum to the
stupid farces of the sixteenth century
and modern plays that have about as I
much theater in them as a comic
cartoon. The result of adapting a
comedy that is within the scope off
students, and at the same time a
definite contribution to the season is
