that they should be reluctant to interpret events
and governmental statements to mean the return
of the campus beer garden.
But we believe that the events of the last few
days point to an imminent revival of open and
convivial imbibing. It seems that a very definite
milestone has been passed, and that the end of the
road is not far off.
ditorial Comment
"The time given by university students to news-3
paper reading," an editor observed recently, "is
deplorably little. It accounts in no small way for
the average young man or woman's indifference
to important national and civic affairs which
should and do concern them."
The statement, unfortunately enough, is found
to be generally true. College people who do
not avail themselves of every opportunity to keep
publicly awake, show small promise of leadership
in the future. There is no institution so power-
fully efficient and effective in giving current in-
formation as the Press. It cannot be ignored by#
any intelligent actively thinking citizen. News-
paper reading should become a habit. Half an
hour set aside every day will prove a valuable asset
in keeping abreast of the times. The successful
colle e man or woman must be mentall'y alert.
Following the daily news is a' recognized factor
in educational training.

public with the exception of small children is in-
vited without admission charge but is respectfully
urged to be seated on time as the doors will be
closed during numbers.
The Symphony Orchestra this season has taken
on real professional aspects, for it includes in its
personnel a large number of veteran players and
many accessions from other schools and colleges
about the country who have come to the Uni-
versity for post-graduate work in music. The re-
sult has been a fine balance of instrumentation
and full choirs in all divisions. Daily rehearsals
have brought about a finish rather unusual and
gratifying among student ensemble organizations.
Professor Mattern is a conductorl of recog nized
ability and has built from his players an organi-
zation of creditable attainment.

T 'E DOAK ruling excluding self-
supporting foreign students from
attending American colleges and universities is
interesting in that it reveals the administration's
attitude towaird the question of student unemnploy-
Through the exclusion of the comparatively
small number of foreign students, the government
apparently is endeavoring to partly relieve the
critical unemployment situation by creating posi-
tions through which native students may return
to college. The American student, however, does
not want this protection. He much prefers to,
accept the ch allenge of foreign competition and
work out the solution independently. With him,
the question is not one of "might makes right." He
regards it as a sporting proposition. Prof. Chris-
tian Gauss, dean of students at Princeton Tni-
versity, stated, "Young men working their way
through American colleges do not wish to be pro-
tected in this way from the competition of foreign
students whom they have always welcomed as am-
bassadors of good-will."
'I he storm of protest that has burst forth from
many student organizations throughout the coun-
try clearly defines the sentiment prevalent in,
American universities on this subject. The Na-.
tional Student League has taken up the torch in
an effort to have the ruling rescinded. Many
prominent educators also realize the mistake made
by Mr. Doak.
The unfavorable reaction throughout the coun-
try should be sufficient to convince Secretary of
Labor Doak that the measure is unsound. - The
obvious remedy would be the removal of the ob-
jectional judgment. Agitation at home and abroad
will only serve to arouse sentiment against the
unjustified discrimination.

of his fellows with a resulting loss of individuaiity.
There is, to be sure, much truth in this allegation~
but it does not follow from it, as some would seem
to infer, that there should be no standardization.
The most satisfactory solution would appear to lie,
rather, in a rational balance between the two con-{
flicting ideals, between freedom and individuality
on the one hand, and conformity and similarity on
the other.
The need of a certain degree of standardization,
one aspect of this balance, is justified by the
practical requirements of life. As America is a
melting-pot for all nationalities, so a university
such as Princeton is one for the various types of
undergraduates who come from a great variety
of localities and environments. It is by the pro-
cess of influenciiig this conglomerate group to
conform to a generally accepted standard in such
rmat ters as dress, manners, and the other outward
amenities of life that more easy and satisfactory
soc'ial contact and relationships, both in college
-and afterward, are achieved. The complete indi-
vidualist may be a genius in a certain field, but

topping the performance of the previous two by a
few inches. Her Gertrude Lennox gushed and
emoted her way through each act with perfect
control of every tear and adjective, including a
scream or two at the end of act one. If there
is one thing Miss Johnson excels in it is projection.
A parenthetical remark might be inserted at this
point to the effect that, although Miss Johnson's
voice is pleasing, it conflicted a bit too much with
Harvey's lines in act one, script or no script.
Maxwell Pribil was interesting as Lord but was
handicapped by a lack of makeup. Virginia Rob-
erts and William Rhodes made an adequate Alice

This play marks the debut of Russell McCrack-
en as director of a campus play, and he is to be
complimented for his production. Generally speak-
ing, his directing showed intelligent insight, fail-
ing in only one instance, which might not have
been his fault. This instance is the emotional
scene in act two between Phibil and Brackett. As
strong a climax as this pros ed to be deserved a
slower transition than it was given. The setting
