Night Editor-CHAS. E. BEHYMER
REGARDING MR. EDDY
The hubub stirred up over the talks
which will be given by Sherwood
Eddy, international pacifist and Y. M.
C. A. worker, seems to have been en-
tirely unnecessary and has resulted
in an unfortunate situation both for
the University and Mr. Eddy and for
which both are in some measure to
blame and yet justified in their po-
sitions.,
There is no question but that Mr.
Eddy occupies an important place in
the world of social and economic af-
fairs today. With his years in Asia
among thousands o students, his re-
pent international interests and as-
sociations with such men as Stalin,
Hindenburg, and Baldwin, and his stu-
dies of labor conditions in many coun-
tries, he has had opportunities denied
most men to formulate comprehensiye
opinion on world social and political
condtions. And judging by tne num-
ber of books, pamphlets, and miscel-
laneous matter that he has written
on diversified subjects, he has formed

many decided opinions. But that is
just the point. It seems impossible
that a man could cover so many sub-
jects as Mr. Eddy does in a thorough
and detailed manner, such as first
rate authority would demand. On the
other hand, Mr. Eddy has done an in-
valuable work in bringing graphically
before the public glaring social and
political inequalities. Too much of
this can hardly be done.
The University is in some measure
justified in deciding to have a faculty
member at his address to explain to
the students that his arguments are
only one side of the question. Much
as we would like to believe otherwise,
many 8students fail to take this into
consideration. Yet we feel that on
the whole, University students can
judge for themselves what to accept
and what to reject. It will be a
peculiarly difficult task for that fac-
ulty representative. As for the debate
which has been arranged, it is unlike-
ly that a common ground of argument
will bh reached. Mr. Eddy was vir-
tually forced into challenging Profes-
sor Hobbs and will likely find it ne-
cessary to introduce facts of refuta-
tion which might better be disregard-
ed. Yet the benefits of an airing of
the general subject of national de-
fense are considerable. It alone

crime, and improve society generally.
Believing idleness to be the primary
cause of crime he would legislate the

loafers into jobs and make them Ii
it. As is usual with such bills Ja
kowski provides for over-elabor
mechanism for carrying out his d
dre4m. A census would be taken,
new court established, moresUt
farms created, new hospitals built
large staff hired to see that convic
loafers did not loaf as per habit a
custom.
Fortunately for the State there
undoubtedly a "pigeonhole" waiti
for the measure in the capitol at La
sing when introduced by the ho
ful but misguided Mr. Jankowski.
SAVINGS ACCOUNTS
Throughout the country millions
dollars are spent every year to indu
the individual to save a cert
amount of his income. Detroit ban
ers, as an example, used more th
$400,000 for this purpose in 19
Likewise, the value of thrift has ofti
been commended to the youth of t
land by public speakers, and ma
banks have extended their savin
facilities to the grade and high scho
in their respective cities.
Under these circumstances, it
difficult to understand why Ann Ar
banking institutions refuse to t
any student saving accounts.
course, there are some students w'
might misuse such service, but,
the other hand, It is certain that th
are many who desire to open accou
for bona fide purposes. It see
feasible that the local banks co
make some provision whereby t
could extend the facilities of th
savings departments to students wi
out endangering their businesse
ciency.
CONTROL. IN NICARAGUA
With the end of the Liberal rev
in Nicaragua seen in the near fut
as a result of the more definite a
tude taken by the United States, b
leading Nicaraguans and Americ
Interested in the situation are giv
thought to some plan by which, un

strife.
The leaders of the better elemi
In Nicaragua recognize that some s

that in Haiti, in inevitable. T
have been very favorably impres
by the successful American con
of customs as well as of the Nica
guan National bank. So, it is
difficult for them to visualize the b
fits which established order and pr
perity would bring them to the ro
railroads, and schools of the coun
which are now in very bad co
tion.
It is reported, however, that nati
al pride is so strong at the pres
time that no party head is willing
take the step, though the action
recognized as necessary. This se
meit will, of course, delay the set
ment somewhat. Nevertheless,t
United States, though it may prope
continue its present activities, sho
not attempt to force a system of c
trol upon the Nicaraguans. The p
posal must, ostensibly at least, c
from them. Likewise, the actual p
of protection, if it is formula
should be so arranged that the Am
Icans connected with it, would
merely as advisers, thus allowing
Nicaraguans to develop a respo
bility for their own government.

HOBBS
The world today is in a turmoil.
Any day now we can expect stormy
weather coming out of Greenland. Is
the United States safe unless it has
a large standing army sitting in its
barracks? No! Who can tell at what
moment the hords of Esquimos may
come fiying out of the frozen North
and attack us in our easy-goirg and1
soft civilization?
And if Mexico should get insulted
at our interference down there,honj
can we quiet her unless we have an:

production is successful in a way-
the play is still one of the best, and
the only fault to find was with the
rather amateur manner in which it
was given.I
The sets were almost unpardonably
shabby, and the cast none too perfect
in lines and action. Emma Raff gave
an interesting interpretation of Iris
