Economics conditions in Europe,
from a scientist's point of view,
are far worse than in America, ac-
cording to Dr. U. G. Rickert, pro-
fessor in the dentistry school, who
returned recently from a ten-week
tour of the Continent.
Dr. Ridkert's trip to Europe wasf
prompted when he was delegated
by the American Dental association
to deliver one of four papers given
at the eighth international dental
congress, which was held in Paris.
After the congress, Dr. Rickert
William Nickols Elected Social
Chairman in Meeting
At the first meeting of the Stu-
dent Christian Association Ren-
dezvous club, held last night at
Lane hall, William G. Nichoals, '35,
was elected social chairo'an. Plans
for the first social function of the
organization, a dance to be given
at Lane hall Oct. 16, were discussed.
The organization was formed at
the freshman rendezvous, conduct-
ed annually during the week prior
to the orientation period at the
University Fresh Air camp, Patter-
son Lake, by the cabinet of the
Student Christian association. The
ninety-odd men invited to atend
it are chosen according to the
scholastic and social ability which
they have displayed at their several
preparatory schools, together with
the charactar which each has been
judged to have.

ending Oct. 16, at the Union, today
for $5, Hugh R. Conklin, '32E, pres-,
made a tour of fourteen of theI
northern European countries, le
was impressed by the communistic
developments in Russia but declin-
ed making public his views on the
situation. While in Mscwhe
came into a brief contact with
Bernard Shaw and Lady Astor. who
were staying at the same hotel.
"Conditions in Europe in gener_
al," Rickert disclosed, "were much
worse than those in the United
States. France alone seems to be
head and shoulders above the rest,
and its condition may be even bet-
ter than that of the United States.
"It is amusing," he contmiued,
"that in France Americans are
charged twice as much for meals
as the Frenchman pays, and they
iget away with it. In Russia prices
are extremely high. A continental
breakfast-which consists of rolls,
butter, jam, coffee and perhaps an
egg or two-costs more than $6.
Consequently the peasants, who
earn only about $75 a mont, diet
on black bread, green cucumbers
and raw cabbage.
"The Germans," Rickert observ-
ed, "seem to show no national spir-
it whatsoever. England is suffer-
ing, and the dole system has work-
ed a bad effect on the people. In-
stead of working, for example, at
a job paying ten or more per week,
they are content to laf nd re--
ceive five or less dollars per week."
The prefessor also observed that
religion was on a slight deelino
throeghout Europe in ,cnrl.
