dom of opinon and criticism of
government through the press is
the best means of keeping the ad-
ministraton running efficiently and
progressively. It is a tribute to the
success of the United States gov-
ernment that it has preserved the,
freedom of the press ever since it
ceased to be a prize jewel of the
British crown.
The Izaak Walton league has
concluded its big convention in
Chicago, and the conservation
movement has been brought into
the public light by the combined
interest and effort of practically
all the conservation bodies that the
nation knows.
The recent Izaak Walton League
convention is rather a solace in
that so many organizations united
their forces in the conservation
movement, which heretofore might
be criticized from the fact that
too many organizations have tak-
en up the cry of conservation with-
out making any evidently con-
scious attempt to bring the move-
ment into action, thereby making
the movementnothing but a lot of
,ballyhooand propaganda which
has too often characterized politi-
cal campaigns. However, they fin-
ally all did get together, including
the Boy Scouts, the women's clubs,
Audobon societies, government bu-
reaus, game protective associations,
and what not.
Now that the Waltonians have
marshalled together all the forces
of conservation, pleaded and sought
for the cooperation of each, and
apparently have attained that co-
operation, the time has come to
put the movemnt in motion. For-
ests, game, waterpower are a few
of the subjects needing 1 more at-
tention than mer congressional de-
bate. Not only do these prob-
lems have to be definitely solved,

¬ęT COULDN'T get very far in the
bond business. I have no social
position or influential friends."
If such thoughts occur to you when
considering your possible fitness for a
career in the investment field, it
would not be surprising. They reflect
a commonly held opinion regarding
the bond business.
But the facts present a different
picture. A young man of wealth and
social prominence may enter the bond
business, but, without other more im-
portant qualities, he has little if any
advantage over any other beginner.
11is acquaintance may in fact turn out
to be a handicap, if he shows any
tendency to lean on his friends. It is
"push" rather than"pull" that counts.

If you have any leaning toward an
investment, career, do not let a mis-
conception about it throw you off your
course. Learn the facts about the bond
business, how it is carried en, its re-
quirements, its opportunities. Then
measure your qualifications against
these known factors.
We have published, especially for
college men, a little booklet, What is
tke Bond BusinessPReading it will help
to give you a true picture of the in-
vestment business. A copy will be
supplied on request. Or stop in at our

more about the bond business, and;
help you decide whether it is the right
business for you.

Of the great number of univer-
sities throughout the country,
Michigan has the distinction of be-
ing one of the few which maintains
a summer camp in order to rouse
a healthful joy of life, and set it
flowing through the veins of many
tragically underprivileged boys.
During the summer months, 400
poor children selected by the wel-
fare organizations of Ann Arbor
and Detroit are given the benefits
of a twelve-day outing in the com-
petent care of a staff of twenty
University men.
The response from the students
last year was excellent, and with
a goal of $3,000 toattain this year,
it is hoped that the response will
be as whole-hearted. Support for
this generous enterprise is depend-
ent upon the students and alumni
of the University, and so the fate
of the project rests entirely in the
hands of those. who are called on
for aid. The cause is worthy. It

Editorial Comment

(The New York Times)
Dr. Williams, Professor of Physi-
cal Education, who dared to doubt
the tonic of setting-up exercises
and a cold bath the first thing in
the morning, must wonder why so
many of his fellow-specialists are
of the contrary opinion. From ev-
ery direction they descended upon
enthusiasts who take radio exer-
him. They spoke for battalions of
cises and glowing plunge. The di-
rector of a health broadcasting bu-


of an

insurance company

points to 700,000 letters that bear
witness to the values received in
"tuning up the physical and nerv-
ous organism." That sturdy com-
panion of physical culture, Dr. Eu-
gene Lyman Fiske wants it under-
stood that if people are to be for-
bidden to take daily setting-up ex-
ercises, then indeed we shall have
to assume that we have entered in-
to a state of decadence." Nor can
he calmly view the suggeston that
alarm clocks be banned because
their effect on the nervous system
is baneful. The faithful alarm
saves its devotees from the wear
and tear of bolting their breakfasts
and sprinting for morning trains!
Dr. Williams commended walking
four miles a day as the ideal ex-
ercise, invigorating and adequate.
But Dr. Fiske exclaims that "walk-
ing is the laziest excuse for exer-
cise I know anything about."
Stepping along briskly with the
chest out and arms swinging is a
builder of vitality. Dr. Fiske is re-
ferred to such authorities on walk-'
ing as Wordsworth, William Haz-
litt, John Muir, Stevenson, George
Otto Trevelyan and Edward Pay-
son Weston. The list could be in-
creased by hundreds of names. I
