how little the contestant had to do with the winning.
His method did it. Even at the present day some
athletes go through a "drying out" process for a
couple of days prior to the event. That is, water is
withheld to a marked degree. This causes a lack of
evaporation for cooling purposes on exertion and the
body becomes over heated like the engine in your car,
not to mention a loss of water needed for flushing
irritating substances from the kidneys. Lack of water
affects the nervous system first, there is a slowing of
mental processes, if prolonged one may have hallu-
cinations followed by unconsciouness, as has occurred
in a mild way with some Marathon runners.
Reducing training to its simplest form: the aver-
age person knows what the plain foods are and if he
eats them in quantities, dictated not by the strain on
his belt, but by his appetite, he won't go, far astray.
He should eat meat, eggs, milk, fish, fruit; vegetables,
dereals, butter; cheese, nuts and raisins. There is{
'nothing injurious about sweets when eaten with
meals unless, because more appetizing, one eats too
Imuch of them.

There is a belief by some that milk makes a person
short winded. I recall a member of a crew who came
in from rowing hot and thirsty, about three Weeks
before the race, and reached for the milk pitcher.
He was told by the Captain to "hold on!, milk is for
pudding only and not to drink." He asked "why"l
and was told that the doctor said that it would make
him short-winded. His reply was "Huh: did he ever
try to catch a calf." Staleness is often a by-product
of training and means that the outgo is, or has been,
more than the income. The person becomes a little
sluggish mentally and physically, like the battery in
a car. If more\electricity is lost than is generated
the lights begin to grow dim and for any excessive
use, as for instance in starting the car on a cold
morning, it is more or less powerless. When a boy
or team is "slipping" I think nine times out of ten
they are tired. We say that physiologically a person,
after pretty complete fatigue, recovers in about two
hours so that he can repeat his performance, but if
he pushes himself to his utmost limit after the
muscles are fatigued it may take him from two to ten
days to recover completely. Boys should be watched
very closely during the first week of practice; as they
are keyed up me tally and rather soft physically;
they lame themselves and overdo very easily. I read
that a prominent coach, now dead, said that when
he hurried a team for an early important game that
team was never a champion. By far the greater
number of men who show symptoms of staleness dc
not get sleep enough. They become fagged, the brain
is less retentive, and they have to go over their studies
too often thus consuming still more time to no pur-
pose, when more sleep would remedy both conditions.
I read that Barry Wood the outstanding athlete al
Harvard kluring the last three years, takes very higl
marks and that he does better work when in train-
ing. He probably has the moral courage to use his
time to the best advantage, to study and sleep when
he should and not just when he feels like it. I believe
that the average boy, with his restless muscles, CAN
do better work mentally when in training.,

'o The Editor:
There are many angles
from which prohibition may be
tudied as those who are interested
n the subject have learned before
now. I am not aware to what ex-
tent it has been shown that the
whole matter of prohibition is
nerely a glaring example of intol-
Focussing attention upon this
point I find that the subject has
been treated in masterful fashion
by a Frenchman, Rene Guyon, in
a book which bears the title: Re-
flections on Tolerance. For my
present purpose it suffices to call
attention to two outstanding char-
acteristics of the French people:
they are realistic, that is, they keep
their feet on the ground and look
upon human nature as it is, not as
reformers imagine it to be. The
second characteristic of the French,
which plays an important part in
this connection is their unconquer-
able spirit of liberty in all matters
pertaining to private habits and
tastes. In other words, the French
are the most tolerant people in the
world. They possess liberty-we
have a statue of Liberty, but she
turns her back upon us.
The French book referred to con-
sists of a series of disconnected
paragraphs of which I have trans-
lated a few. The reader will notice
that the French use the word "pro-
hibition" and related words in a
wider sense than is current with
us. With' them, it applies not only
to drink, but to anything which
may be forbidden or censored.'Both
censorship and prohibition are con-
demned in the strongest terms by
M. Guyon, a condemnation in com-
plete harmony with French ideals
I. One of the most active forms
of modern intolerance is legal pro-
II. Nothing is too big or too little
for the prohibitionist. He attacks
everything: tobacco, sex, drinnk,
dress, the movie, dancing, card-
playing, certain great classics, etc.
He tries to suppress them all and
so turns life into an existence even
more drab than it is, already with-
out his unwarranted activities.
III. The prohibitionist puts on
the grave air of the doctors and
tells you of his great concern for
your health-but he kills.you with
restrictions between two yawns. As
for choosing one form of death or
another, is it best that we perish
dried up, cramped and crabbed?

No War


Yith pg
CONTRARY to the popular conception, the
United States will not enter into a war with,
Japan, it was made clear by Admiral William1
V. Pratt in a statement yesterday. Many peo-1
ple have been exceedingly worried over the
prospect of 3another war but there is little basis
for such fears. -
The government. at Washington, while in-
tending to see to the safety of its nationals,
does not expect 1 to adopt any such violently
jingoistic attitude as 'would lead to a declara-
tion of war against Japan. The protest of the
United States to the Tokio government was
principally directed toward the protection of
the residents of the international settlement.
Admiral Pratt, who is in general charge of
the operations of the American ships stationed
around Shanghai, said in his statement, "Our
fleet will be ready to evacuate our nationals or
to protect thetn if a crisis arises where mob
rule prevails. Our forces will go in and take
whatever steps are necessary to protect our
people." While not eliminating the possibility
of American soldiers and sailors engaging in
fighting with the Japanese, this official release
should set at rest the fears of those who are
afraid that we will be forced into an open and
offensive war. It is made clear that protection
of Americans and their property is the only
purpose of sending the navy to Shanghai.
There are a large number of women and
children among the foreign residents of the
city and it is imperative that these be protected
in the case, which is not at all unlikely, that
either the Chinese or the Japanese troops or
the frantic natives of the city become panic-
stricken and seek to enter the international
settlement. This would naturally bring the
Americans into direct conflict with the invad-
ing armies but would not necessarily jeopard-
ize the United States nor place us in such a
position that war would be inevitable.
Furthermore, the United States has sent
only four destroyers to Shanghai, whereas the
Japanese have some 40 vessels in and near the
city. When the Chinese announce that they
may be forced to occupy the international set-
tlement as long as the Japanese make it the
base of their operations, we will have to escort
our nationals to safety. But war? No.

Injuries are undesirable in every way, even small
degrees of lameness of the arms and legs are tiring,
to the nervous system, even if not sufficiently severe
to lay one off. They take the "tuck'" out of a person.
In the few years since I have been at Michigan, I
have never heard a coach demurr when I have said
that I thought a man ought not play. I have gen-)
erally explained why and the coaches have apparent-'
ly agreed with me, waiting patiently or otherwise
until the boy was judged fit to play again. By the
way, athletes heart is a popular myth.
Occasionally I see a boy wio is "slipping" and I
find that he is not getting proper food; 'a favorite
idea is to go without breakfast making eighteen
hours between supper and his next meal. Some like
foods that have much in bulk, but too little in nour-
ishment. I remember one big fellow who Was laid
off the Varsity squad for two weeks, we changed his
diet and he went back and played an excellent game
for the rest of the season. Ttaining or keeping fit
is just common sense put to use
Auspicious press notices have accompanied pre-
vious showings of "Die Foersterchristl," German all-
talking production selected for the opening attrac-
tion at the Whitney under its new policy to go into
operation today. The first performance of the pic-
ture is scheduled for a matinee at 3 o'clock today.-
The plotof "Die Foersterchistl," which is based on
the life of the composer Mozart, concerns the ro-
ma tic adventures of the daughter of a forester living
in the vicinity of Vienna in breaking into the royal
society of the Emperor Josef. The picture is a love
story, much of the action of which is laid in the royal
palace of Austria during the eighteenth century.
In adition to the feature, three shorts are offered
on the Whitney program, including one of the Nat
Shilkret series, "The VRusic Master," taken from inci-
dents in the life of Beethoven; Gorno's Marionettes,
and a travelogue of China are also on the bill.
Incredible as it may seem, a travelogue-a real
travelogue-has been produced that is genuinely in-
teresting. -It is "Around the World in 80 Minutes,"
produced, directed, and starred in by Douglas Fair-
banks, Sr., and it is packed with all the lusty thrills
so charactexiistic of the productions of the elder Fair-
banks, who handsprings and cartwheels his way from
Hollywood to India and flies back in four minutes to
the accompaniment of some of the best trick photo-
graphy on record.
The monologue, read by Fairbanks himself, that
follows the movement of the film, is exceptionally
brilliant, even for that veteran of the screen, who,
very adroitly prevents the production from becoming
a vehicle exclusively for the exploitation of its chief
character by injecting a certain amount of burlesque
into the continuity and submitting to a little self-
The other half of the double bill, "This Reckless
Age," would be as bad as it sounds if it weren't for'
the fact that Charles Ruggles does what may well be
called the funniest performance of his career to earn

various prohibitions in ancient and
modern times. Whether it be a,
question of the existence of God
of the fashion of short skirts, what
the prohibitionists are after in
their tireless attacks is always the
liberty of thinking for oneself, of
living for oneself, of not conform-
ing servily to some philosophical or
social watchword.
V. The only advice that tolerance
permits us to offer is this: make
use of everything according to your
tastes and according to the indica-
tions of a rational hygiene-but
never abuse anything. It is the
duty of tolerance to hate every
system that lives on constant med-
dling with the private regime of
VI. To condemn at the same time
the use and abuse of something,
is the mark of a narrow mind.
VII. When a philosophy of re-
nunciation profits by circumstances
to impose upon others its own pro-
hibitionist discipline, it is no longer
the legimitate expression of a con-
vction, but the instrument of a
mischievous tyranny.
VIII. Prohibitionism is justly ac-
cused of being a deliberate tyranny.
For, in a free society, no one pre-
vents people from abstaining as
rigorously as they desire; but there
are those who are not satisfied
with this, and whose sickly desire
aims at extending their own ab-
stention to those who do not wish
to abstain.
IX. In order to cause the triumph
of the vile, pestering, and shallow
need of meddling with the conduct
of others, the prohibitionist makes
use of the proud word of the law.
This is the mediocre satisfa tion
sought by all those assekialionsl
who mean to impose upon others,
without discussion, their own pre-
feirnees cin the matter'of peitinpy.


All formals, both men's and women's,.handled
with greatest care and carefully form pressed-Each gar-

ment in individual bag.
