To British Leadership
HE victory of Ramsay MacDonald and the
national government in Tuesday's general
election in England carries with it an unmis-
takable mandate. It is an indication that the
British people, sjice dissolution of Parliament,
have gained confidence in themselves and are
ready to place this confidence in those who are
entrusted with the responsibilities of govern-
ment. At a time when the world is passing
through a cycle of depression, there is no pana-
cea so self-suflicient as a restoration of confi-
The victory of the 65-year-old premier is all
the more reinarliable when one considers the
opposition which ie confrontedl, His was an
uphill battle. Expelled from his party when,
in the face of an impending fiha1ial crisis, he
formed his natio.al goverimn~nlt, it was be-
lieved his tenure wodld be tn mporary, and that
soon he would he 1 (ade for political extinc-
tion. And when he assumed support of the'
government with the understandig that when
the energency ended a general election would
be held, he was not persuaded to continue defi-
nitely in office by pleas of postpohement. He
meant to go into the election, win or lose. Win
To those of us who every few years sit idly
by and act as a spectator in the national pas-
time of mud-slinging and lavish campaigns in
this country, there is an additional lesson to
be gained front Tuesday's results. The general
election campaign was as tumultuous and bit-
ter as the island has witnessed for some time.
Yet the fight was clean; it was bard-fought.
And, in remarkably short tme, it was finished,
with the issues as clear cut as when the cam-
paign op ened.
Health Educaton -
William M. Brace, M.D,
Tuberculosis is man's most universal scourge, well
deserving the epithet bestowed upon it by Bunyan
of the "Captain of the Men of Death." It is estimated
that one-eighth of all deaths are due to it. In the
United States it is responsible for eight per cent of
It is a definite infection due to certain known
bacteria. The human individual in normal health
and with good health habits seems practically im-
mune to the infection. This organism however, more
readily attacks those individuals who do not eat a
well rounded nourishing diet, get sufficient sleep, and
obtain fresh air and sunshine in moderation. For
example in the last few years the incidence has not
decreased as much in women between the ages of 16
To The Editor:
I am answering the objections to the "Student
Socialist," which appeared in the Campus Opinion
column of Wednesday's DAILY. Apparently some
well-groomed young military man took time off from
the manual of arms to discourage the efforts of stu-
dents interested in modern problems of humanity;
or perhaps he merely wanted to repeat the old-time
refrain in defense of militarism.
The complaint was made that "The Student So-
cialist" found fault with "most anything that exists
in our social order of today." That is not true. A
paper of this type is an organ of constructive think-
ing. If the editors of "The Student Socialist" believe
an institution of society to be wrong. it is not because
they merely want to destroy, but that they see meth-
ods by which people can modify those institutions to
obtain more agreeable ends. The statement was
made that "Most people can convince themselves that
anything is wrong." If this were true, there would
be no need for a socialist paper or even a liberal
party. People would then obviously convince them-
selves that various conditions in our social order
were wrong, and then attempt to bitter them. How-
ever, people are not that way. The intelligent person
will not find fault with an organization unless he
has some set of principles or ideals on which to base
his criticism. If "The Student Socialist" wishes to
object to the R. O. T. C., it is because the publishers
have a definite goal in mind which is considerably
disrupted by military propaganda and policies.
The writer goes'on to say that the socialists are
"irritating the sore of depression, and scornfully
haranguing those whom they think are responsible
for it all." The socialists do not point a finger at
any man or group of men and say, "You are respon-
sible for the depression." The depression, as all in-
telligent people will agree, is caused by our economic,
system. A highly specialized planless system of eco-
nomics inevitably falls into periodical repetition of
prosperity and depression, and as we have come to
know, depressions are a thing entirely unwanted by
all classes of society. Socialists point their fingers at
the economic order and are striving to even off the
business cycle by methods of planned economy.
As a member of the advance unit of the R. o. T.
C., the writer denies the statement common to most
militarists that "The best preparation for peace is
the preparation for war." I am afraid that this sol-
dier has failed to absorb the high ideals put forth
by the officers of the local military organization.
After listening to an hour's lecture by one of the
prominent professors of military science and tactics
on his ideas of peace, I became convinced that this
old-time doctrine was the Gospel for peace among
military circles. K. B. W. .
To The Editor:
The Sino-Japanese Crisis has revealed a miracle:
The League of Nations, officially pronounced dead by
President Harding, numerous politicians, and some
prominent professors of our University has turned
out to be a "living corpse" worthy of headlines even
in those American newspapers that used to rejoice
in its death.
Those scoers who despised the League of Nations
as a clique of European diplomats now have to admit
that it is a world-league, significant in Asiatic affairs
as well as in those of South America. (Bolivia versus
Americans who have during the past ten years
urged that the United States should join the League
of Nations, lest it lose in prestige and miss an im-
portant opportunity to strengthen the peace-forces
of the world, saw now their worst fears fulfilled:
Japan's refusal to permit the United States being
invited to attend the Council meeting represents a
grave insult and demonstrates the ridiculous position
in which our isolationists have placed us: we, the
people who suggested the forming of the League of
Nations have to wait and find out whether we are
welcome as a guest! But, still worse, a serious inter-
national conflict became still more complicated by
our not being a member of the League of Nations;
the question whether the United States too might
help arbitrate threatened to create new international
At the time of the Harding campaign Herbert
Hoover and other prominent Republicans promised
the public in a special appeal that if Harding was
elected the Unitied States would join an "Association
of Nations." It is high time that President Hoover
and his associates keep this promise by bringing
about the entry of our country-not into an ima'gin-
ary Association of Nations, but into the very real and
active League of Nations which is good enough for
55 other nations.
The present crisis has demonstrated that we do
not even enjoy the privileges which small Panama-
at present represented on the Council of the League
of Nations-enjoys. Every thinking citizen'should do
his utmost to bring about a quick entry of the United
States into the World Court and the League of Na-
tions. By writing letters to our Senators and Presi-
dent Hoover the trend of public opinion can be
demonstrated. Francis S. Onderdonk.
President Hoover wants a navy sq strong and effi-
cient that no enemy could ever invade this country,
We don't quite know why we
should have elected to say Whee
right up there at the top of the
column today. Just put it down to
natural exuberance a n d animal
spirits and try to be lenient about
it. Perhaps it is because we have
seen what is to take up the bottom
half of our column today. If the
Daily doesn't get sued for libel on
it we shall feel very disappointed

Perhaps that explains all t h e

which issTe from their office. The
fact is that the old sillies are try-
ing to make money selling a maga-
zine which costs them a little over
twenty-five cents per copy for fif-
teen cents. Almost anyone ought

The student council is making
people wear pots. Frederick Fred-
erick, '34, suggests that the tradi-
tion be changed to make only sen-
ior councilmen wear pots.
That sounds like a good idea,
Frederick old fellow. The coun-
cil ought to have something to
mark the distinction if any be-
tween it and the columns on
Angell Hall. Those with aes-
thetic tastes might point out
that this is already done on ac-
count of the columns are pret-
ty, but, aesthetite taste being
what it is around here, we
think that something else
ought to be added.

Mood Indigo by Clyde McCoy on
Columbia was just a record of a
good piece. I Found a New Baby

Fletcher Henderson did two Vic-I

justice at all. Fletcher can produce
a lot better stuff than that.
Snooks and His Memphis Stomp-
ers on Victor deserve some credit
for having enough sense to play
Sweet Georgia Brown, although
they did only a fair job.
Duke Ellington played a piece on

the credit of the man who named
it. It is The Mystery Song.. and
