when most current debts were contracted. In the
face of what has happened in Iowa and what it
:,agurs it is difficult to understand how practical-
;mninded persons can any longer argue against re-
One of the most significant aspects of the
trouble in Iowa was that the mob apparently
moved without a leader. When times become so
hard that a group of men will act the way they
did, spontaneously and without demagogic goad-
ng, no one can exaggerate the seriousness of the
The uprising in Iowa was but one of a series
that has occurred during the past year through
the length and breadth of the land. Its cause lay
partly in crop failures, chiefly in the present vi-
cious deflation which has brought previous dis-
content to a head. It was in no way an isolated
example of what is happening under current con-
ditions which demand the unjust repayment of
debts in money harder to get than that which was
No one defends the action of the Iowa farmers
in using violence to halt the proceedings of a duly
constituted court of law. Under democratic gov-
ernment there should never be an excuse for the
people to resort to force to carry out their will.
But defendable or undefendable, the uprising took
place, and the unrest of which it was sympto-
matic cannot be denied.
Reflation alone cannot restore prosperity. Its
backers do not claim that it can. But it is absurd
to talk of bringing order to an economic system
based on a price level which by its fluctuations
can annually rob social groups of millions and
which offers no prospect of stability either to in-
vestors or borrowers.
A controlled price level would put chains on an
anti-social force now allowed to wreak havoc with
every change in the amount of trade. It would do
much to guarantee society permanently against
the danger of the sort of thing that took place this
week in Iowa. We believe the President's reflation
measure points to the establishment of a con-
trolled price level. And we hold what happened
in Iowa to be a potent argument for its adoption.

Screen Reflections
Four stars means extraordinary; three stas very
good; two stars good; one star just another ,.cure;
no stars keep away from it.
Teaming Mary Pickford of "Little Lord Fount-
leroy" and Leslie Howard of "The Animal King-
dom" might seem to be an almost inmpossible feat,
but the producers of "Secrets" have done it
and made a very successful picture out of the
Leslie Howard at the beginning of the picture
is a bank clerk in a small New England town and
Mary is the daughter of the president of the
bank, doomed by her parents to marry a stuffy
English lord. So they run away to California
singing "Oh Susannah."
Once in the promised land, they have trouble
with cattle rustlers and their baby son dies. But
they have some more children and Leslie finally
becomes state governor and United States Sen-
ator. There are, however, some interruptions in
their marital happiness-the "secrets" of the title.
The final scene of the show in which Mary
and Leslie, now about seventy-five years old, are
running away from their children and the world
to begin life again where it was interrupted by the
birth of the first baby is very strong. The
modern automobile they are using for their
escape has a radio in it and the orchestra starts
playing "Oh Susannah" and the picture flashes
back to their pilgrimage in the covered wagon. If
that scene doesn't get you, you are immune to
screen emotion.
Leslie Howard and Mary Pickford are both
strong in their parts. Mary captures your sym-
pathies in this show quite as thoroughly as she
used to do in her little girl parts and, while Leslie
Howard looks a little out of place as a western
rancher, so would a New England bank clerk.

Abridged Texts Have
A Legitimate Place.
r HE INJUNCTION recently granted
by a Boston Federal District Court
judge to four text book publishers restraining
the college Tutoring Agency in Cambridge from
publishing, copying or selling any versions or
abridgements of texts published by the companies
is. undeniably just in the eyes of the law.
The tutoring agency, it appeared at a prelim-
inary hearing, had prepared mimeographed
abridged versions of books used in college courses
and offered them for sale to students and others.
The publishers claimed, truthfully enough, that
these abridgements infringed their copyrights and
interfered with the sale of the books themselves.
The fact remains, nonetheless, that there is a
definite place and perfectly legitimate utility for
sich abridgements. If the publishers refuse to
nake them or charge exorbitantly for the priv-
liege, there is some excuse for their preparation
by a private person.
.I many cases the author of a text book
is a fine scholar in his special field and thor-
oughly understands the rules of rhetoric but his
text-book is so filled with superfluous examples,
examples of the way something should not be
done, useless repetition and extraneous facts that
the result is a work in which it takes hours to
penetrate to the bare facts. Most students have
at one time or another been obliged to study
from such a book. In such cases as this, an
abridgement presenting clearly and succinctly the
underlying principles of the course is a great aid
o comprehension.
A1so in some courses one or more texts with
more than 800 pages are used. In reviewing the
course for an examination a re-reading of these
lengthy texts is obviously impracticable, so that
here also an abridgement is of value.
The danger present in the use of abridgements
is, of course, that some students will disregard the
text entirely and slide through the course with the
use of the shorter books. This type of studying,
however, will give a less complete knowledge of
the course and will inevitably be reflected in the
final mark.
If these publishers don't want others to pre-
pare shorter versionzs of their copyrighted books,
the wisest course for them seems to be to make
the abridged versions themselves.
APotent Argument
For Inflation.

The University Symphony Orchestra, conducted
by Professor David Mattern, will appear in the
following program this afternoon at 4:15 p, m
in Hill Auditorium.
Overture, "Marriage of Figaro" .......... Mozart
This gay and brilliant overture from Mozart's
musical adoption of the Beaumarchais work of
that name is characteristic of this charming
"comedy of manners" which from the time of its
first performance in 1786 has been a perennial
and an eternal success. Even the composer writes
back from Prague a year later, "The one subject
of conversation here is-Figaro; nothing is played,
sung or whistled but-Figaro; nobody goes to any
opera but this same-Figaro!"
Symphony No. 3, ("Eroica") .......... Beethoven
Allegro con brio
Marcia Funebre
Scherzo-Allegro Vivace
Finale-Allegro Molto
Dedicated "to celebrate the memory of a great
man" after the bitter disillusionment of Napo-
leon's accession to the throne of France, this
symphony transcends the personal limitations of
its original hero to become an apotheosis of a
heroic mankind who through his moments of
exuberance and seriousness, childlike abandon
and harsh conflicts, gains the power to triumph
over the profound solemnity of death itself.
Symphonic Variations ................ Boellman
Ruby Peinert, Soloist
Typically a virtuoso piece, this work exhibits the
many sided technical possibilities of the 'cello
in its cleverly constructed variations which are
based on a theme of truly lyrical beauty.
Dance of the Sylphs Berlioz
Hungarian March
With his usual intrepidity Berlioz does what he
wishes to the traditional Faust legend-places him
in Hungary in order to introduce a version of the
"Rackowsky" March-and calls the "spooky" dance
of unearthly spirits a Minuet. But forgetting the
program-as the composer might as well have
done-these selections from the "Damnation of
Faust" constitute some of the best music that ever
came from the emotional pen of this writer of

Student Health
One of the many erroneous beliefs in medicine
among the laity is that the birthmark must be
present at birth in order to be classified as such.
The occasionally expressed popular idea that
birthmarks result from maternal impressions is,
of course, without any scientific foundation what-
ever. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Birthmarks (nevi) to be sure are often present at
birth or shortly thereafter, but they may make
their appearance at any time from the cradle age
to senescence.
There are generally speaking two types of nevi
(birthmarks) with various subtypes and combina-
tions of these two classifications. The one type is
the familiar port-wine mark or strawberry mark
often seen on the face or back of the neck. These
birthmarks come under the group of vascular
nevi or those composed of blood vessels. These are
harmless and are removed usually for cosmetic
purposes or because of pressure on important
The other type of birthmark is the so-called cel-
lular nevus, so called because in structure it con-
sists of masses of normal tissues which are pecu-
liar only in their excessive amount in the particu-
lar spot. Moles fall into this second classification.
According to the amount of pigment and hair
present, we have various types of moles such as,
pigmented moles, non-pigmented moles, pig-
mented hairy moles and non-pigmented hairy
Some moles are potentially dangerous in that
they may develop into one of the nost dangerous
types of new growth (skin cancer). This tendency
however, has been over emphasized, for practically
every human being has one or more moles and
the number of cancers which we see develop in
them are infinitesimal when compared to the
total population. There are two warnings to be
issued with regards to moles: First, It is the
bluish-black mole that is the most dangerous and,
secondly, any mole regardless of color that shows
evidence of irritation or further growth, spontane-
ous or otherwise, demands immediate expert ad-
There is no reason why moles should not be
removed when they are dangerous or when they
ccnstitute an unsightly cosmetic blemish. How-
ever, they should not be tampered with by the
non-medical person. They are better left alone.
