Cheaper and more efficient distri-
bution of agricultural products has
long been advanced as the cure-all
for the present ills of the American
farmer, but the problem of applying
a measure to that end has stumped
all of the plotters and planners from
Congress on up. In a current issue
of a magazine the Secretary of Agri-
culture, William M. Jardine, urged
that the methods of big business
would ease the spot that hurts if they
were properly applied.
It can hardly be generally charged
that the middlemen have been extort-
ing more than their due as the farm-
er's products passed through their
hands. They have been making a fair
profit, but at the same time they have
been in far too great a number for
efficiency. The dollar paid by the
consumer has always shown too great
a margin over that received by the
farmer himself, and in consequence
both the market and the buying
power have been. limited. Secretary
Jardine's suggestion would seem to
be a wise one. He is an advocate of
big business methods only under the
condition that the farmer enters in as
a unit, and he would countenance no
plan whereby corporate big business
would be extended into agriculture
as a whole. No relief would be af-
forded in the latter instance. It is
clear that for his own future safety
the farmer must control price-deter-
mining factors.f
Every man believes in freedom of
speech until somone else starts toj
criticize his work or accomplishments.
The annual freshman cane spree
and rope tying contests are nothing
compared with the annual June rush
of the seniors to get jobs.
The most disillusioned graduate is
the one who has already held down a
job before coming to the University.
He is the only one "not going to make
a million dollars in ten years."
It's a poor state that cannot name
at least one favorite son candidate
for the Republican nomination.
The reason why the "confession"
magazines have turned from sex
stories is easy. They haven't been
selling so well lately.

Since the World war left many sec
tions of the world isolated after par
titions and boundary changes, one o
the biggest problems with which th
]League of Nations has had to concert
itself is they matter of bringing thes
sections into accord and of protectinf
their union and their safety witl
treaties and agreements. Composes
of small states, as so many of thes(
sections are, and separated from th
proper protection and isolation whict
is accorded by nature to more for
tunately located places, it has beel
necessary to band these groups to
gether and to provide for them somE
common defense ands some common
aim that kept them together and di
rected their ideals and actions.
The most important of these groupQ
with which the League has been con-
cerned is the Locarno group. Includ-
ing as it does the important coun-
tries of Hungary, Austria, and Ru-
mania, much attention must be given
to it and the greatest care must be
exercised in the matter to prevent
minor intrigues and injustices which
might lead to war.
The former Locarno treaty made a
long step in the right direction. But
now, in the estimation of Eduard
Benes, chairman of the League com-
mittee, events warrant the establish-
ment of a new Locarno division, and
the formulation of new provisions for
the protection and the safety of this
important area. The proposal pro-
vides for the entrance of Hungary,
Rumania, Austria, Czechoslovakia,
and Yugoslavia into the union and
is a strategic move which will bind
the most important of these countries
together, will give the smaller the
benefit of friendship and the guidance
of the larger, and will remove Austria
from all prospects of being absorbed
by the Reich.
It is in this work of world partition,
and the adjustment of the regions to
their proper companions and activi-
ties that the League has to date
proved its worth, and it seems to be
the future work of the League until
the division of the world is accomp-
lished systematically as far as is pos-
sible. There has been no agency be-


g To the Editor:
h As an engineering student I should
d also like to express my interpretatior
of the University college and its re-
e lation to the engineering school. Fromt
e my experience and from the discus-
h sions I have heard, I believe that the
- people proposing the University col-
n lege would do the student body a good
- service and at the same time clear
e up a number of mistaken ideas if they
n would endeavor to make the student
body more familiar with the aims
and ends of the University college.
s Statistics have been gathered which
show that about 10 per cent of the
graduates of the engineering schools
- continue to make their living in the
- engineering profession five years after
graduation. If something can be
done to eliminate these apparent mis-
directed educational efforts there will
I certainly be a great gain to the na-
tion. I do not see any definite effort
toward this end under the present
system. As I understand it, one of
the aims of the University college is
to help the student discover his po-
tentialities and to acquaint him with
the various needs of life so that he
I may choose more intelligently what
shall be his life work.
This may mean that the engineer-
ing course will have to be lengthened
and thereby cut down the enrollment.
However, if those who do graduate,
though fewer in number, are more
certain that they are to make actual
use of their training, they shall be
more fitted to take positions in our;
complicated civilization than the 90
per cent who leave the profession
after five years.
It is a common saying that the
engineer is nothing more than a tool
in the hands of other people. I be-I
lieve that some effort should be made
to give him some viewpoints as to
his relation to our present society and
his place in it which will enable him!
to act as a constructive force in life
and not to fill the position of a mere
pawn. If the University college can

There is a peculiar quality about the

only piece of effective theater that
rings the bell is the part of Mrs.

cruelly like Lonsdale's. As for the
