mands of the French delegates
their indefinite suspension of the
conference's agenda because of
petty particularism in the Chamber
of Deputies, and we can excuse a
little exasperation seeping through
the diplomatic reserve of our dele-
gates. The Hoover administration,
too, needs some sort of a diplo-
matic victory for campaign mate-
rial this fall. If France forces the
other four powers to accept her
cruiser demands, the United States
will have to spend a billion dollars
to restore parity-an eventuality,
which can hardly be heralded asj
part of an economy program, or as
an achievement of American diplo-
macy.

Following my offer of stamps for
contributions-see Sunday's Daily,
back issues five cents-I've been
flooded with contributions. It now
looks as though I'll be buying1
stamps sooner than I expected.
Which all goes to show that you
can't get anything for nothing.

However, let 'em come. It's a
great relief to come down to the
office and open letters that don't
contain bills.
Two of today's letters offer sug-
gestions regarding the protection
of the Library seal, and while both
are good I doubt that the Student
council will approve of them.

OBSTRUCTIONIST FRANCE.

More automobiles mean ad in-
creasing number of accidents, and
every accident means a financial
loss to some one. Eleven states,
recognizing the menace of th e
driver who is not covered by insur-
ance or who is financially irrespon-
sible, have taken steps to abolish
this evil with the result that many
new laws, and amendments to old
ones, have resulted in complete
protection both for those who op-
erate motor cars and thlose who
may be struck by them..
In Connecticut, Pennsylvania,
New York, Iowa, California,
Rhode Island and Vermont, any
driver who is held at least partly
responsible for any accident is re-
quired to give proof of his ability
to pay for future accidents before
he is permitted to drive again. In1
Maine, where this law has been in
force for some time, the hit-and-
run drivers and those who fail to
render assistance or give informa-
tion following an accident are con-
sidered as guilty and responsible as
the careless driver.
In New Hampshire and New Jer-
sey drivers responsible for acci-
dents must file security to the
$5,000 and $10,000 limits for any
judgment that may be rendered
against them by a trial court, and
reckless drivers in North Dakota
must give a personal or surety bond
of $2,000.
These laws, while differing
slightly in their application, all aim
to lessen the danger presented by
the slipshod driver, and a wider
1adoption of this type of preventa-
tive medicine would do more good
than a ton of traffic lights. When
will Michigan join the parade?

Dear Joe: All that the Library
seal needs is a good soaping. A
glass of water and a cake of soap
would immediately stop all care-
lessness. Each student treading on
the seal would make two connec-
tions, the second harder than the
first, and in a different place. Af-
ter a few experiences the rumor
would go about ,and perhaps even
the use of the front door would be
abandoned.

INTERNATIONAL NIGHT.
Reviewed by Frank E. Cooper.
Showmanship, that elusive qual-
ty which distinguishes the good
rom the mediocre in so many
inds of public performance, was
learly manifested last night in an
nternational Night program which
ar excelled any similar program
resented on the campus stage in
everal years.
It has often been remarked that
nternational night programs of-
ered an opportunity for a good
howman to build up a speedy, col-
rful review that would rival, as a
neans of eye-and-ear entertain-
nent, any of the colorful extrava-
Janzas characteristic of the long
ine of Union operas. Last night,
he program was in charge of two
lirectors, Chester Bennett and
William Palmer, who appreciated
the possibilities of their material
and realized what sort of vehicle
was best fitted to display to ad-
vantage the talents of the foreign
entertainers.
As a result, instead of the al-
most- bare stage and the Act I-
Lights out-Act II routine which
was characteristic of earlier Inter-
tional Night performances, a sin-
gle massive stage setting, livened
by the constant presence on the
stage of more than 50 costuned
artists, formed a continuous setting
for the acts, which followed one
another in rapid and easy sequence.
The problem of handling the
transitions from one act to the
next-the concern most intimate to
the successful presentation of the
program as a quasi-unified page-
ant-was treated by slap-dash
methods. Although necessitated by
the massive nature of the under-
taking, this treatment was a trifle
too crude.
The transitions were handled by
means of the incidental actions on
the stage of a group of performers
supposed to be inhabitants of the
mythical city of Eldorado, where
the talent of the world had gather-
ed f-or a contest in entertainment.
The milling about the stage of these
actors, who strolled the Eldoradc
streets between acts of the show
served as a too effective means o
bridging the gap between acts. Ir
fact, the mob-scene techniqu
tended to "rob the show," at times
when over - ambitious amateur
stole from the back-ground to th
fore-STge and performed suppos-
edly incidental antics which dis
tracted the attention of the audi.
ence from the main numbe whic
was at the moment being present
ed.
In addition, the crudity of th
mob-scene treatment was enhance
by the circumstance that the ac
tors had not been sufficiently re
hearsed, and sometimes wandere
the stage streets to long befor
giving way to the next act sched
uled on the program.
But after all, the treatment ha
the undubitable merit of bridgin
the way swiftly between the varie
acts. And the acts themselve
were in general well performed an
pleasing to the audience. Fror
the standpoint of the vaudevil
impressario as well as of the tire
business man, the numbers wer
well selected. Trained voices, wel]
drilled dance choruses, and musi
cians with long stage experienc
were presented in a series of swif
light, tuneful, and colorful nu
bers which were really very muc
like modern American vaudeville.
The element of involved, hard
to-understand, overly subtle higL
, brow effects, so often a mark o

amateur performances, was absen
Instead, there was a profession2
skill, and a spontaneity of suc
proportions that the entire aud
ence clapped time to some of tlh
dance numbers.

While the diplomats at the Lon-

their thumbs until France!
straightens out her cabinet, those
back home have an opportunity to
analyze the situation which has
developed without the issues' being;
obscured by a flood of official
statements and press propaganda.
Our analysis leads us to the con-
clusion that as yet the conferencej
has not been a credit to itself, and
especially that the role played by
the French has not been a credit to #
France. It is, of course, too early
to place a final jud ment on this
attempt of MacDonald's to justify i
himself politically, but it can bef
safely stated that unless France
returns to the council table in a;
more cooperative spirit little of1

Typing by wire -an adventure
in commun1caton

The telephone typewriter, a new Bell
System service, has commercial possi-
bilities as yet barely realized.
Forexample,a business house can type-
write a message over telephone wires,
and this is retyped instantaneously and
simultaneously in any number of branch
offices. The advantage is obvious - in

knitting together far-flung organizations
and in quickening the pace of business.
Here is still another extension of
telephone service which has already
proved its value. The telephone type-
writer promises even greater things as
industry discovers new uses for this in-
strument of convenient communication.
