Night Editor-JOHN D. REINDEL
With the transmission of the
World Court protocol to the Senate
by President Hoover, a final step
has been taken in a process which
started back in 1920 when the
United States was first called upon
to become a member of this inter-
national organization. After six
years, the senate and the state de-
partment finally found it conven-
ient to consider the entrance of the
United States, and a rather unruly
senate decided that the welfare of
the country could only be protected
r by a qualified admission; that is,
they tacked five reservations onto
the protocol, and intimated that if
these reservations were accepted,
they would permit the United
States to become a member of the
court. The court accepted four of
the reservations, and in a revised
protocol embodied a method which
it was hoped would meet the fifth
The Senate should ratify the pro-
tocol. The outstanding radical lead-
ers claim that the United States,
according to the Monroe doctrine,
should not involve itself in foreign
affairs, and that accepting mem-
bership in the world court would
embroil it in all the European
quarrels and disputes, to which it
does not want to be a party. Never-
theless, these senators forget that
our country is economically and
commercially very intimately con-
nected with Europe. Questions that
will probably arise in the court
have to do with commercial trea-
ties, since states signing treaties of,
such nature, have agreed to sub-
mit any disputes arising under the
provisions to the court for arbitra-
tion. That the United States could
not afford to have anything to do
with such matters is a ridiculous
assumption, when one considers the
fact that almost all of the Euro-
pean nations owe large debts to
It is likewise too idealistic to as-
sume that we are entering the court
because that body will in the fu-
ture serve as a means to eliminate
war altogether. It is a body which
exists largely because the greater
powers are backing it, and there-

sees itself becoming embarrassingly
involved in foreign affairs in which
it wishes to have no hand it can
withdraw at any time without los-
ing any respect. We are protected
in every way, and the obstinate
senators who cry "Wolf, Wolf," are
merely echoing the apprehensive
rhetoric effusiveness which has
always characterized those who
argued the most and accomplished
the least in that worthy body of
legislators. Ten years have passed,
and it is high time for them to act
for the good of the country for

To the Editor:
In the recent article that ap-
peared in Campus Opinion entitled,
"University Education," the writer
expressed very beautifully and clev-
erly his thoughts on why there
should be more freedom accorded
the college student of today in the
selection of studies and the use of
his time as his own. One hears
many similar ideas to those ex-
pressed in the article from our col-
lege students today and it has be-
come an important question as
proved by the plans of the Univer-
sity of Chicago, for meeting the
They seem very reasonable from
the beginning student's point of
view. Everyone seems to be making
rules for him to follow, telling him
what, why, and how to study, and
deciding when he, or mostly she,
is to arrive home in the evening.
He feels to the contrary that he
is a "man" or "woman" (a title
originated only by himself and not
by the faculty as the writer com-
plained) and should therefore be-
come all of a sudden capable of
absolute freedom in activity.
But what does the average fresh-
man know about what is best for
him to take up when he selects his
first subjects? They have little
knowledge and are therefore ad-
vised and guided to take those
courses which time and experience
have proved best and fundamental
for his growth. After giving the
student a well-balanced course of
study his freshman year, they then
leave him free to elect his own
studies from then on. This is the
little guidance which the writer
mentioned as being necessary.-
i As the writer knows, that which
is "orange juice" for some, is "cas-
tor oil" for others, and it works
both ways. Since he used that anal-
ogy I will refer to it also. And some-
times we find that the castor oil is
better for us in the end. The or-
ange juice requires no effort to
swallow and we would thereby miss
the training which the writer
speaks of as being needed by the
new student in the term "mental
I think the author of the editorial
wants college to be a bit too easy.
He probably has some particular
field which he is interested and
talented in and wants to forget
hard work in other subjects which
serve for a well-rounded education.
He finds things that are uninter-
Sesting, unsatisfactory to apply him-

self to. Along that very line he
needs training. Training brought
about by "plugging" as he remarks.
The statement that the system of
"holding us to the grindstone,"
"deadens us who might be great"
is rather illogical. Surely, enlarging
one's capacities, broadening his ac-
complishments and interests, and
training his narrow mind to con-
quer new fields for only one year,
cannot serve to drown any spark
of genius or of unusual ability, even
though that year be one of "tor-
ture" and similar to "the grind-
The student who has large in-
herent capacities or talent for any
special work, has many years ahead
of him in which to develop and en-
courage his interests -and should he
"shy off" at one year of work that
is distasteful like the castor oil re-
ferred to? He must rely, to a cer-
tain extent, on the experience and
judgment of those who have been
facing the problem for a long time
and really know a little about edu-
cational methods.
They have also tried and proven
to the satisfaction of themselves
and the students that a certain
hour is proper, and to the advan-
tage of the majority, for them to
be in by. Of course this is a rule
and has its necessary excntions.
