students. To many of them the
cover was nothing more than a
burlesque Christmas card. Judging,:
from his letter in Tuesday's Daily,I
Norman Anning must be one of
those people to whom the story of,
the three wise-men was only aj
nice background for Ramon 'Navar-E
ro's "Ben Hur."
He says that the story is not sac-
red, that it is merely a beautiful,
poetic narrative, like the story of
"Snow-White and Rose-Red," and
the "Three Bears." He says that
it is ridiculous to believe that God
could change the course of a star
'in his own heavens.
The story of the wise-men is sac-
red. It's in the Bible and it's just
as sacred as the story of the birth-
of Jesus. If the story of the "Mag-P
is not sacred to you, none of the:
Bible is, and when the Bible lo:s I
its sacredness, you had better be-
come an English instructor. That's
the best place for people who feelj
that way about it. They're harm-
less there, nobody takes them ser-
iously, and they have free rmill to
rave on about their doctrines of
reason, culture, Hellenism -- any-
thing but Christianity.
ILet's read the story of the "M,,agi,"
as we find it in the second cha)pter°
of the Gospel of Mathew:f
"Now when Jesus was born inI
Bethlehem of Judaea in the days
of Herod the king, behold, Wise-
men from the east came to Jeru-
salem, saying, 'Where is He that sL
born King of the Jews? for wie sawv
his star in the east arnd have comre
to worship him.'.., and they, hav-
ing heard the king (Herod), went
their way; and lo, the star, whichI
they saw in the east, went before!
them, till it camne and stood ever
where the young child was. AndUU
when they saw the star, they re-
joiced with exceeding great joy.
And they came into the house and+
saw the young child with Mary,
his mother; and they foll down

THE ISOLATION MYTH
With the stage set for a long
fight on the much discussed ques-
tion of America's entry into the
world court, the forces in opposi-
tion have again begun the time-
worn argument of America's splen-
did isolation, a policy which, it is
claimed, was first Laid down by
Washington and has since been ac-
knowledged by all the great states-
men of the country.
It is admittedly a strong argu-
ment for there has grown up in the
popular mind an implicit belief in
this policy. The word isolation it-
self has been surrounded by a ser-
ies of myths and traditions and, al-
most without exception, it has been
strong enough to defeat any meas-
ure such as the world court proto-
col.
But America's isolation has re-
mained a myth. As far back a.
1803, Commodore P r e b 1 e was
pounding down the walls of Tripoli
in an attempt to free not only
American but world commerce from
the domination of the Pasha. In
1853 Commodore Perry was forcing
his way into the ports of Japan
and demanding the right of trade
with the United States. Twelve
years later, American guns were
leveled at Kagoshima to punish
the Japanese for firing upon a
small American steamer and the
United States were joined in this
destruction by the British cannon
Since that time, the Samoan Is-
lands have been taken, a nava'
base has been established at Ha-
waii, Cuba has become a protec-
torate, and Americans have taken
a prominent part in the Hague con-
ferences of 1897 and 1907. More
recently, in 1921, there was the
Washington disarmament confer-
ence. This is obviously a very brief
list and could be extended almost
infinitely.
The time has come when th(
American people should be freed
from. the mental straight-j ackets
of such myths. There are advan-
tages in the world court plan which
no one can intelligently deny ant

As for the Gang cover, I athink
that the whole offense was unin-
tentional. Somebody had a seem-
ngly clever idea, but nobody hap-
)ened to realise that it would be
offensive to so many of their read-
;rs. You know, college students are
.upposed to be so unconventiona,
>o hard, so ultra-modern, so ideal-
stic. They're all ready to make the
whole world over, and there's noth-
ng like starting with man's oldest
mnd most reliable friend, his Goal.
So they proceed to make thsese old
truths ridiculous and funny.

seem thata music wiith a religious
flavor is highly attractive, for at'
the Adeste Fidelis, the audience
stood up and sang with the perfor-
miers. This is something that could'
only be enjoyed here, and here it
was really enjoyable. It is hoped
that the Glee clubs and the banld
will continue their welcome reci-
tals. The University band has lim-,
ied itself too imuch to the football
field.
