themselves nor the public at large.
Admitting their sincere attempts to
improve present conditions by try-
ing to influence the psychology,
which plays such an important role
in either prosperity or adversity, of
the nation, it is impossible for any,
ingle person, or any group, to con-
trol the industrial and financial af-
fairs of the country.
President Hoover is receiving
much of the blame for these critical
times. Few appreciate his earnest
attempt last year to restore pros-
perity by calling a score of promi-
nent industrial leaders to his aid.
As the outstanding figure of the
country, one who has lifted the
people from previous exingencies,
he did his best to avert disaster.
Unfortunately his best was not good
enough, since he was attempting
the impossible.
Undoubtedly the' line of progress
for the coming year will be upward.
The recovery will be slow and grad-
ual, however, since stabilizing of in-f
dustry is a tedious process. Author-I
ities are united in their opinion
that a measure of confidence is
necessary to bring improvement. As)
soon as this fear is dispelled, the
business cycle will reach the point,
not of unexampled prosperity, but
of good times.
Minister of the Interior Mussolini
can now congratulate Premier Mus-
solini on the successful flight to
South America of Air Minister Mus-
solini's squadron.

LOAFING FOR CREDIT.
Barnard College has recently an-
nounced a course which will consist
of several hours rest each day for
students whose health does not
come up to a certain standard, and
for those carrying heavy schedules.
Regular college credit will be given
for the course.

"I NEVER WAS SO ASHAMED"
(From the Daily Princetonian)
Monday night in a sparkling ad-
dress to an appreciative audience
Everett Dean Martin, director of
the People's Institute of New York
City, outlined his views on the
Meaning of a Liberal Education. It
does not consist in "making a noise
like a well-informed person." It
does not consist in exalting human-f
itarianism above reason. It does
not consist in short cuts to knowl-
edge via correspondence schools or
"15 minutes a day." Its essence is
knowing what you mean by what
you say, and one of its earliest
teachers was Socrates.
Education, said Mr. Martin, is a
much-abused term. Men are "edu-
cated" to eat sunkist oranges, "edu-
cated" in social graces. Indeed,
savoir faire in company is for many
Americans the highest type of
learning. Press advertisements for
five-foot culture are an index of
this appalling fact. Even the best
newspapers show pictures of the
chagrined wife shouting at her
'cringing husband, after the party:
"I never was so ashamed! You
didn't say one word the entire eve-
ning."
Ignorance, in the judgment of
Mr. Martin, is not simply a vacuum,
an aching void, into which truth

public press have issued predictions
that unbounded prosperity will be

States as a country of false promise.
If, on the other hand, these im-
