measures antd resolutions in Con-
gress as a means of showing their
constituents that they are "on the
job" rather than for any other rea-
son. But Senator Ashurst's com-
mon sense should have told him
that his proposal would certainly
offend the national feeling of the
Mexican citizens, especially when
he stated that their government
neither desired nor was able to po-
lice or supervise the districts in
question. It is an affront to a na-
tion which has normal status in
the international community, even
more so when the senator admits
that the purchase of the land would
"make Arizona's b o u n d a r y a
straight line." Evidently Senator
Ashurst's main reason for this ab-
surdly asinine proposal is to give
Arizona a better appearance on the
map, and to provide 'some more
desert land to put on the tax rolls.
Ashurst, during the last session
of Congress, introduced a bill,
which was later passed, that pro-
vided for a slight reduction in the
number of immigrants from Mexi-
co, as well as higher standards for
those admitted. As a representa-
tive of a border state, he naturally
is interested in keeping the labor
element, as voters, satisfied, and
cutting down foreign en t ra n t s
I would bc an excellent platform on
which to seek re-election later. But
now he comes forth with a resolu-
tion which, if carried into effect,
would add several thousands of
foreign-born to the Arizona popula-
tion, the very flow of which his
former bill attempted to curtail.
This ill-advised statement will not
seriously impair the relations be-
tween the United States and Mexi-
co, for the resolution should cer-
tainly never get further than the
foreign affairs committee. In the
meantime, Senator Ashurst might
better stick to matters such as ir-
rigation or farm relief, instead of
attempting diplomacy and foreign
affairs, two subjects in which he
has given a perfect demonstration
of lack of intelligence and common
sense.
A MODEST PROPOSAL
Knute K. Rockne, builder of
champions, recently made the fol-
lowing modest statement. Said he:
"There is nothing in the theory
that eleven boys who are clean and
mentally alert on the football fieldj
are dumb in the classroom. Neither
does it follow that boys who are
clean and alert in the classroom
are dumb on the football field. I
wish that Mr. Erskine (donator of
the national football trophy) would

All of this bring us down to the
question of the moment. After care-
ful deliberations among its staff
of editors (Chairman: Dan Baxter;
Editor: D. Baxter; Ass't Editors:
Uncle Baxter, Uncle Dan, and Dan
Baxter himself; Right Half: Bax-
ter; Dean of Students: Joseph E.
Bursley). Rolls has decided to insti-
tute a contest. This, boys and girls,
will be a new kind of contest.
CONTEST
This is an easy contest. There
is practically nothing to it. In
fact, you might as well finish,
your breakfast and go on to
Sunday school.
The contest is built around the
idea that Michigan needs a new
song. Realizing the immensity
of the task, Rolls will under-
take the problem by producingI
one line a day. All you have to
do is supply one word. Write on
only two sides of the paper and
be sure to enclose return en-
velope with stamps (detached).
The first uine follows:

All you have to do is fill in the
blank. But remember, the word
must complete the rythmical swing.
Here are some examples:
I want to go back to SMITH'S

won't do).

quite the spirit desired, but you get
the idea all right, all right).

nonsensical hour of tomfoolery in
1 his second and more successful mo
tion picture, "Follow the Leader."
And so ridiculous is the bespectacled:
stage comedian's appearance and
,atter that the film becomes amus-
ing in spite of itself or the audi-
ence.
Outside of a slender romantic plot
thread and some excellent advertis-
ing for George White and his Scan-
'dals, the picture revolves entirelyE
about the antics of this "perfect
fool" and a fellow comic Lou Holtz.
Best of the many gags are Wynn's
abundant inventions, rivalling Rube
Goldberg's for ingenuity, including
a special corn-on-the-cob holder
which works on the same order as
the paper carriage on a typewriter
completely equipped with beil and
automatic sliding return.

on the mood you're in, and the en-
