Real Help
r Seniors.

CHE Student Council, in sponsoring a series of
talks by prominent business executives during
e next month, is doing a real service to the cam-
s. The members of the senior class, especially,
ould appreciate the activity on the part of the
:)uncil in developing this program which will be
more than passing interest to them.
The series of talks, which will be given by
presentatives of various business fields, will ex-
ain many problems encountered in industryI
day, problems which the graduates will havej
attempt to solve in the next few years. Too
ten the average senior's conception of "getting
job" means getting a job, if possible, with any'
ncern which has an opening. Obviously such a
ginning, often too haphazard, can not be an
ispicious beginning for an attempted successful
reer.
The program should be well attended by the
iss of '32 at least. The members will be able to
tain many useful hints in preparation for their
ming careers. Councilman Candler deserves
edit with the rest of the Council for planning
d arranging this very useful series.
CAPJUSPUCPLNAON
Letters published in this column should not be construed as
expressing the editorial opinion of Th le Daily. Anonymous conm-
munications will be disregarded. The names of communicants
will, however, be regarded as confidential upon request. Contrib-
utors are asked to be brief, confining themselves to less than 300
words if possible.
The Editor:
Have just finished reading your editorial on the
'indling hopes of the Democrats and wonder where
u get the embryo politicians to write such editor-
s. The picture that he paints of a Democracy
pelessly shattered with the candidate of four years
o taking the stump for the Republicans is a perfect
ample of a Republican pipe-dream-something
ey often resort to in these days of Republican
nkruptcy.
Conceding that the writer knew something about
litics we can use him as a perfect example of the
erage Republican. He sees hopeless defeat staring
n in the face. He knows that the chances of re-
eting Hoover are just about ap good as those Qf the
>verbial snow-ball that attended the summer ses-
n.
So what does he do? He weaves flowery dreams
out Democratic discord. He visualizes Hoover as
e Moses of the twentieth century, leading his be-
red people to the Promised land. He sees him as,
e kgnight errant, hurrying to save the nation from
e horrors of a Democratic administration.
-Then the effects wear off and once more he hears,
e cries of suffering and distress, the vain appeals
aid from a government, so anxious to take power,
t so slow to recognize its responsibilities. At the
ad of this government sits a man, so adapt in
wnaging the political affairs of big business, so
pable of dealing with interests of foreign nations,
t when his own people cry for help and relief, he
mders along, mumbles a few words about preserv-
g the American standard of living and deploring
rething dr other, and then informs the world that
osperity is just around the corner.
Why shouldn't the Republican party be harmon-
is? To repudiate their leader would be completely

In the third place, this editorial writing business
allows us to regard ourselves in the light of reform-
ers attempting to hold a guiding beacon before those'
of us who are blindly groping in the dark. What
you may be groping for may not concern us deeply,
but we do appreciate the opportunity it gives us to
enact the reformer role. It is for this reason that
we periodically implore you to do such things as vote
for your class officers, join outside activities, and
co-operate with anything and everything while the
happy glow of righteousness warms our insides and
we raise our eyes heavenward with confident faith
that we are helping to make life a better thing to
1 live.
Finally, we write editorials because it is the cus-
tom of all news sheets to present editorial opinion
in a certain reserved space and we have no desire
to break with convention. A news sheet minus at
least one editorial is not quite the thing a news sheet
should be and who are we to decree a new style in?
newspaper make-up?
For these four reasons, then, and for many more
unuttered because of lack of space, we ask you toj
read editorials. Of course, we know you won't but
it never hurts to ask.

on to the next chief. The treasure
was worth thousands of dollars in
American money but to the Ber-
bers it was just "pretty." So Harris
King, chief of the Berbers, hid this
treasure. A little while before he
died he wrote a letter to his brother
and had one of his chief aides take
the letter to the coast settlement
and mail it. In it were the direc-
tions and a clue to the treasure.
Jack's tkicle aided Harris King's
brother and in his will Harris
King's brother left him the letter.
The reason Harris King's brother
did not hunt for the treasure was
because he was so poor and could
not raise funds enough. The treas-
ure was hidden on Treasure mpun- !
tain. A mirror was placed on a
cliff opposite the mountain. A phos-
phurous material was put at the
base of treasure mountain. The
sun shone on the treasure reflect-
ing it on the mirror which drew a
picture of it on the phosphurous
material. The sun had to shine on
the treasure and towards the mir-
ror. That accounted for the time
the treasure shone. When anyone
got within less than ten feet of the
picture of the treasure it blocked
