This seems to be a very feasible system, since the
football and basketball schedules naturally en-
hance the value of the first semester books. Espe-
cialy is this plan effective when the purchase of
books is optional.
Opposition to the compulsory fee has been
growing on the Indiana university campus for
several months. It might be well to note, however,
that the compulsory fee idea originated within
the student body a decade ago, and 95 per cent

stag to assume dictatorial powers. Combined with
Alfred Hugenberg's Nationalist Party, the Na-
tional-Socialists now occupy 52 per cent of the
seats in the Reichstag, and have gained since the
last election in November a total of four million
votes. Through their success they have wrested
control in Bavaria from the Catholic Party, and
have won together with the Nationalists a ma-
jority of the seats in the Prussian Diet.
Germany has at last indicated clearly which
way it wishes to be led. The path points toward;
dictatorship; yet though the word dictatorship
may be spoken glibly enough, the ultimate results
of the German decision are not easy to foresee.

-Otherwise known as Peter J. Merkus, BSE
"Captain" Joseph Bellocq, the big plumber-
mariner from 655 Howard St., who goes down
to the sea in inner tubes, has set forth on a
new journey. -News item.
INTERVIEWER: It seems to me that your
idea of going down the Mississippi in a boat
made of inner tubes presents a number of dif-
ficulties. What, for instance, would you do if
you got a puncture?
CAPTAIN BELLOCQ: Well, I worried about
that for quite a while, but I guess that's just
one of those things you've got to take a
chance on. Tubes are in good condition,
though; ought to be good for 25 hundred-
three thousand miles yet. And then if worst
comes to worst, I've got a couple of blowout
shoes I'm taking along.
INTERVIEWER: I see. Seriously, though,
how can you expect these tires to stand up
for a trip that long?
CAPTAIN BELLOCQ: Oh, I'm not worried
---much. There's only one think I keep think
ing about.- I understand that down in the
Gulf of Mexico they have a lot of swordfish.
