severance of diplomatic negotiations between the
two countries might, if nothing is soon accomplish-
ed, lead to just that end. The primary motive of
the League in intervening in the Mafichurian con-
troversy is, of course, to avert war. Of secondary
but of equal importance is an extreme fear lest
the integrities of treaties be impaired, and the
right ezpressed in the Covenant of the League to
intervene and avert war by peaceful means when-
It is doubtful if Japan and China want war;
yet they are opposed to any settling of the disputej
other than among themselves. They would con-
sider it a domestic problem, not one of interna-
tional scope. But this in reality is what it has
become and it is time to carry out the Kellog-
Briand pact and the Covenant of the League.
Under the Kellog-Briand pact, both Japan and
China renounced war as an instrument of national
policy. There is also the nine-power Pacific treaty
which pledged them to arbitrate disputes. If the
League, together with its member nations, cannot
prove its usefulness, it has partly failed of its pur-
pose. If the Kellog-Brignd pact, of which Japan
and China were both signatories, fails as a remedy,
then that treaty is worth nothing more than a
scrap of paper.,
But with these powerful forces cooperating,
there is every hope that the League will succeed in
its duty. The American government, determined
to do its utmost for the preservation of peace, is
ready to ignore Japanese protests and accept the
invitation of the League to prevent war. The fact
that the United States is willing to participate in
negotiations is -an indication that we are a peace-
loving naion. Once Japan thorouighly understands
the American position, it is believed the govern-
ment at Tokio will withdraw its objection and
accede to the arbitration of disputes by legal agen-

NIGHT EDITOR-JAMES INGLIS
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1931
ASTERN colleges, urged on by the national
unemployment comnittee of President Hoov-
',have agreed to stage a football rodeo to take
:e in New Haven and New York. Each game
l'be for 20 minutes and an active day of football
aes is plarnned for the spectator.
In the meanwhile, Big Ten officials, upon being
roached on the same subject, are withholding
r opinion on the matter. Since charity games
re 'already approved of earlier this fall, to take
:e after the regular conference season, it is
ally probable that a plan similar to that in the
st might be adopted.
Such a manner of conducting football games for
rity might simplify matters in numbers. Yet
do not believe it would be as reiunerative, as
as the charity side is concerned. Under the'
Ten system, the charity games will undoubted-'
>e used to decide thie championship, in as much
it appears that 'several teams vil tie for first
ce. Under the Eastern system, this would be
>ossible. Twenty minutes of football would not
out the players so much, yet if it were a ques-
n of demonstrating clearly a superior brand of
tball, 20 minutes could not decide the matter
harply as a regular football game could. There
uld .be alibis from the rooters of the losing team.
As for the financial side, games in five differ-
large stadia would certainly attract greater
wd than any number of games in two stadia.
st Big Ten colleges are situated near large
es, and the conference officials would certainly
ange a schedule that would attract the largest
wds. A championship game in the Michigan
:lium, a semichampionship game in the Ohio
te or Northwestern stadium would certainly
ract a large number of customers. Nor are the
er stadia in the Big Ten exactly what one
1Ld call "small."
All in all, although the plan adopted by the
stern colleges is praiseworthy, we do not believe
vould be a success in the Big Ten. It is a ques-
n of straight football versus abbreviated, thea-
:al football. If the championship of the middle
st, perhaps of the nation, is to be decided in a
rity game, why not make it a full game and
e the spectators their money's worth?
With the commencement of each academic year,
the problem of class dues comes to the fore. Slogans
are bandied back and forth between the various fac-
tions within a class in an effort to arouse the student
body into action. Sometimes this method is success-
ful to the extent that the student out of sheer bore-
dom from being "pestered" with demands upon his
class loyalty, and other phrases which are apparently
quite meaningless to him, finally pays his dues.
Such acondition is lamentable; it indicates a
lassitude which is certainly not in keeping with the
attitude that should be shown by students at an
institution of higher learning. A college and its cam-
pus is a little world of its own, and the habits we
form and the interest we display in a variety of sub-
jects will undoubtedly remain with us after grad-
uation. Perhaps the lack of interest we, show in
politics as mature men and women may, in the final
analysis, be traced to our attitude toward them while
The age-old query, "What do I get out of it?" may
be heard wherever the politically minded gather.
Self-aggrandizement seems to be the only excuse for
participation, and unless this is forthcoming no sup-x
port is guaranteed. No thought is given to the factL
that the leader chosen is the representative of thet
class and his actions will be a reflection of the wis-a
dom of the class' choice.
Phrases such as "class loyalty" and "class unity"r
are hackneyed, but they wil continue in use for wantF
of better expressions. If the individual resents theira
use, then let him pay his dues and avoid needlessc
annoyance. If the individual desires to become activer
because of ulterior motives best' known to himself,e
let hin do so. If the final result is the election of .c
a capable president in the class elections which will 8
follow each other in rapid succession during the nextX
few weeks, the end justifies the means, for spirit andt
loyalty cannot be developed in a day.C
Freshmen know more than seniors. At least, that
is what a recent Carnegie foundation report declares,
going on to say that a senior loses much of the
"knowledge" he has acquired even before he receivese
his diploma. The peak of his "knowledge" in manyc
subjects is reached during his freshman year, accord-1
ing to the report. We wonder what the report means
by "knowledge." If it uses the word in the sense of
a group of isolated facts, figures, and dates the as-
sumptipn might be correct. But one can hardly call
this storing-up process "knowledge."
The senior has learned the relative unimportance
of facts. He does not try to remember every date
mentioned in his text book as 'does the freshman only
a few months out of high 'school. Rather, the senior
has acquired from college the ability to think and
reason for himself. He not only knows where he
can go to get his facts if he needs them, but he has
learned the value of reasoning out their causes and
effects. He knows how to pick the chaff from the
The freshman does not yet know how to do this.
He still believes everything that is told him, accept-
ing without question the opinions of others, and
especially of his professors. He still has upon him

The claims of the report may be true, but if a
senior and a freshman were given an equal oppor-
tunity to solve a difficult problem in their field, we
