of Present D1ay Learn
How to Play.
Donald Hamilton Haines, of the
journalism department, who spoke
yesterday during the Universit y
radio hour stated that he believes
a persistence of the capacity for
play is an excellent cure for getting
old too rapidly, that too few chil-
dren of the present day really learn
how to play, and that the fault lies
more with the apparatus of toyland
than with the cnildren hemselves
and their parenis.
"This question of toys," he said,
"is one of steadily increasing im-
portance. There are too many ele-
ments in our swiftly moving and
h i g h 1 y complicated civilization
which tend to cut even shorter the
fleeting years of childhood, and to
rob this curtailed period of some
of the qualities which it should
never lose."~
Haines said that we are uncon-
sciously taking from the play of the
modern child that element of the
imagination which it must retain
if it is to have its full constructive
"That very efficiency which is so
helpful to the adult is a background
slap at the child. By making his
play so easy, we have cheated him
out of half the fun," he said.

Carlson writes that the group is
situated on a small island called
Natsiorsiorfik by the natives, ap-
proximately two miles southwest of
the ice front of the Upernivik gla-
cier. Arriving there on the morning
of Aug. 30, the expedition proceeded
to erect camp, building a shelter
of rough board, stuffing the space
between the inner and outer walls
with tundra gathered by Eskimos,
and lining the house with balsam
The letter mentions that 23 as-
censions of aerological test balloons
had been completed, the longest be-
ing to an elevation of 11,250 meters.
The hope was expressed that be-
tween 220 and 250 ascensions will
be made before the calcium hydride
used in the balloons was consumed.
The letter adds that the group
has had no radio communication,
whatsoever, due to the tubes prov-
ing defective. The expedition- head
does not mourn the loss, mention-
ing that without the radio, their
time will be left free to do more
worth while things.

Wilbur Declares Self
Against Tarriff on Oil
t ~(Associted Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan, 7.-Secretary
Wilbur today declared h i m s e 1 f
against a tariff on oil.
Such a tariff, as proposed from
time to time by some of the lead-
ing producers and recently by E.
B. Reeser, president of the Ameri-
can Petroleum institute, would be
of little value to the small pro-
ducer, the secre ary asserted.

Blames School Superintendents
for Brevity of Their
An explanation of the brevity of
the tenure for public school super-
intendents is explained by Prof.
Arthur B. Moehlman, of the School
of Education, in an article in the
last number of the School of Edu-
cation Bullet-in entitled "Why Sup-
erintendents Leave."
The feeling for "short and snap-
py terms" featured by school exec-
utives, he says, has developed to
such a point that superintendents
"start planning a brief and inten-
sive publicity campaign, hoping for
a ten s'rike before the time has
passed. So many apparent success-
es have been scored for this type
of program that it is rapidly be-
coming popular in many states,"
In almost every case, the brevity
of the term of these men is entire-
ly their fault, he states. A recent
survey shows that of 45 removals,
16 were caused by failure to makle
community contacts, 11 by ineff-
ciency, 5 by politics, 4 by sex indis-
cretions, 1 by gossip, and 1 by fi-
nancial adjustments.
