the elimination of the lame dlucks will
requirema constitutional amendment,
and a constitutional amendment will
require a lot of trouble. The end to
be gained, however; will be worth the
price, for the anomaly of a Congress,
half of whose members may have been'
repudiated by their constituents, is a
menace not only to the principle of
representative government but to the
best interests of the legislation which1
must necessarily be enacted in the
short session.
Montreal, erstwhile opponent of the
Great Lakes to the Sea waterway, is
apparently experiencing a change of
heart, if reports from that quarter
can be believed, and the conversion is
coming about not by popular insist-
ence or by scientific report, but by the
vision of a new and gilded giant-elec-
tric power. The good folks of Mont-
real, it seems, had never quite re-c
alized just what 3,000,000 horsepower
would mean to their province until a
group of Montreal university profes-
sors recently got their heads 'together
and figured out, in dollars and cents,
the amount of wealth the project rep-
If Canada, with all its government
railroads and its conservative minis-
try, can be brought around to the
favorable view by the prospect of
power, perhaps the United States
would do well to follow a similar plan
and dangle the prospect of power be-
fore New York state. The same sci-
entists that estimate 3,000,000 horse-
power for Quebec estimate that NewI
York would gain at least 1,000,000l
horsepower from the electrical de-1
velopment, and at the current charges
for electricity that sum would repre-
resent real wealth in New York.
After all, the Great Lakes to the
Sea waterway, being a program which
will make transportation more effi-
cient,- and which will pay for itself in
power, seems to be ultimately inevita-
ble. Already Detroit is the fourth port
of the nation, though handicapped byI
having no outlet to the sea, and the
tide of Congressional opinion, beset
by innumerable favorable reports and
a strong public opinion throughoutI
the Middle West, seems to be swing-'
ing more and more toward the adop-
tion of some such measure.
Efficient transportation, which fail-I
ed to persuade either Quebec or New
York, seems to have been replaced
by a more potent argument in those
vicinities which should appeal to even
the most terrified antagonist of the
commercial waterway-the argument
of power.

only a couple of camera men taking
pictures of college for College Hu-

IT SEEMS THAT the men who di-
rect such enterprises have come to
realize that their pictures are not
much like real college life, and ac-
cordingly they are taking some snaps
here and there for examples of real
college doings.
WE HOPE THEY get some good
views of genuine activities, but then it
is hard to take moving pictures in the
dark. However, we will offer them
some stills of real college endeavor,
or what have you.

The above is the pet hobby of some
of the leaders of campus activities.
Moving picture directors sometimes
have difficulty in filming such a sceneI
because they cannot keep the actors
supplied with pop.

No, this man is not really drunk.!
This is just to illustrate how some
of the college boys experiment for
psychology classes. They gave this
man somnc pop and put a snake in the
bag. The effect is evident. This is ai

A review, by Kenneth Patrick.
International Night is hardly so
much an event as an experience, an
experience that is dull in spots, re-'
freshing in others, and quite enter-
taining in still others. Last night it
had some rather startling features,
and not least of them was the size of
the house, which surpassed that of
any concert held this year in Hill
auditorium, believe it or not. It is
perhaps the farthest from the campus
pseudo-sophistication of anything
ever seen here. The large audience
applauded innocence, endeavor, and
amateurish methods with a spontane-
ity that belied its collegiate character
-until some antics began in the lat-
ter part of the program.
It is better to gloss over the ordi-
nary and the superfluous, and get to
the high spots. Briefly there were
Blossom Bacon and her harp, the Ger-
man student singers, and Nadia Ata-
manec, the Ukrainian soprano. The
highly touted Polish pianist was-
pardon me-a flop. Miss Bacon com-
manded attention and applause with
her instrument-and handled it with
true Irish informality and ease. The
Heidelbergers jocularized and war-
bled "Wie ist das Leben" until I could
swear I smelled beer and heard pret-
zels being crunched. Mrs. Atamanec
ought to be somebody's find. She
bore her audience along like a Raisa
in the duet from the Ukrainian opera
which she sang with her husband.
Moving pictures were checked up
and found correct for once, when two
Hawaiian girls did the hula with all
the fixings. It was great, and every
one trembled afterwards for fear some
of the boys would whistle and break
the spell. Along towards the finale
some 30 or 40 children came on the
stage and did little else but dance
and sing-but there was a real thrill
in it.j
There is something amiss with this
sort of program. It has so much to
work with, and makes such a: big
hodge-podge of it all. Wise cutting
of scenes, elimination of the long
waits between the short scenes, and
the least bit of real showmanship
would result in a remarkable product.
It ought to be turned over to a Shuter,
just as an experiment. However, In-
ternational Night can be termed an
earnest and successful venture. Come
on, Henderson!

Night Editor-PAUL J. KERN
Aside from the natural terror which
the name "Religion" instills in the
average University student, there
seems to be no really good reason
why the series of lectures recently
arranged by the Student Christian as-
sociation and kindred organizations
should not receive more than indiffer-
ent attention on the part of the stu-
dent body.
Such men as Dr. Wilbert Hinsdale,
Prof. Solomon Gingerich, Prof. W. D.
Henderson, Dr. Aldred Warthin, Prof.
Louis Hopkins, and President Clar-
ence Cook Little are worth the time
of almost any student, and when their
lectures are offered free of charge, on
subjects of current interest, the op-
portunity is even more valuable. The
series has been arranged under the
auspices of a religious organization,
to be sure, but the broadness of the
subjects to be covered is such that no
person need fear a dogmatic ex-
position in any numvber of the group.
The talks certainly deserve the atten-
tion of the student body.
Lame duck, besides indicating a
very unfortunate species of fowl, has
Jong been an expressionaof extreme
significance in national politics.
Designating, as it does, the Congress-
man, who has been defeated in the
November elections as lie sits in the
December sessions of the House of
Representatives or the Senate, it has
more than once meant defeat or vic-
tory for a bill of paramount interest
to the nation as a whole-not defeat
or victory on its merits.
The lame duck, it happens, usually
desires a federal appointment to some
easy position or other after his days
of usefulness in the Senate are past.
It is thus his duty not to consider
what the merits of a measure are, but
to ask whether or not the President
and his administration are behind the
bill-for it is the President who is
expected to award his fidelity with the
federal appointment after his term is
For many years this "lame duck"
session has been a menace to the best
interests of a large amount of federal
legislation. For many years measures
have been tentative to prevent the
"lame duck" session (controlled as it
is by the President) from occurring

under the auspices of the Matinee Mu-
sicale in Mimes theater last night.
The most colorful and emotional of
the selections, Smetana's Quartet in
E Minor was also the best handled of
the two major works on the program.
Titled, "From My Life," the theme
of the piece as it progresses through
the four movenents is the romantic
desires of boyhood, the happiness of
youth, and the joys of first love, turn-
ing in the end to the introduction of
national elements in music and the
final gloom of a future shrouded by
the misfortune of deafness.
The performance of the Haydn
Quartet in C Major Op. 74 No. 1 with
all its classical austerity and pre-
cision of expression was beautifully
delicate and demanded an immediate
response. Bocherini's Menuett was
the encore inevitable.
The last of the program was lightly
amusing. The Irish Melody, an ar-
rangement of "Danny Boy"; By The
Tarn, a weird bit of moodiness; and
the mad magic of Presto, Al Sarta-
iello were all beautifully done.
The encores demanded as a result
were the popular Tango by Albeniz,
and the lovely Bizet Adagieto.
