"PAUPERIZE OR STARVE"
To The Editor:
The . economic crisis is here; the Good Will
Fund at best is a temporary stop-gap.-t gets to
the roots of nothing .and -suggests neither causes
nor cures for the deplorable situation in which
many students are found. There may be some ex-
cuse for inter-student charity, if that is the only
immediate relief possible. To pauperize these
students is preferable to letting them starve.
Those who open their hearts and purses, however,
and those who- put their energies into the .;cam-
paign must not think that they are helping some
great and constructive cause; they have changed
nothing, but for a few weeks time. The- deepest of
' capitalist morality" is superficial.
- As students we should be able to look deeper.
Lhe University and the students are -part and
parcel of aninadequate- economic system and an
anjust society. But social consciousness is fast
.wakening and social morality (such as a sense
f economic justice) is a matter of education. The
,ask of constructing a rational and classless so-
ciety is not a hopeless one. The University and
.he entire educational system can play a decisive
part. Imaginative instructors are setting out to d
instill social consciousness and a superior social
norality. Their students are looking for the new
forms and are going outs to build them. UnlesE
{ exaggerate the possibilities of education, it has
a peculiar significance to the state. -

Don't let the title of this picture lead you
astray. It is not a. travelogue produced by some Lo(
geographical society but instead, a stirring story
of a white, half-savage, jungle hermit. In many
respects, "Kongo" is comparable to the recent '
"Red Dust," however, without Jean Harlow's out-
standing attraction. S{
To fortify himself against the outside world roo
and -consequently to seek revenge for- a crippled
back received at the hands of an old enemy, Flint do
(Walter Huston): has set himself up in the midst
of the thick. Congo jungle, and built around his me
compound an inpregnable barricade of savage
native tribes. Flint has been accepted as a leader fie(
of the native tribe,
The daughter of his former enemy is brought
to: the compound from a convent in Cape Town
as Flint prepares his fiendish revenge. Not long
after her arrival, a white doctor (Conrad Nagel)
who has been driven to chewing beeang root (a
potent jungle drug), stops to rest at the. com-
pound where he is kept a prisoner. There he falls
in love with the white captive, and plots her
escape. Flint, however, in a sudden reverse of af-
fairs, relieves the doctor of his problem. .
Lupe Velez plays no prominent part in the
picture. Her use is only to bring out Flint's- hard-
ened and brutish character. She is surprisingly
missing during the latter part of the film. Con-
'ad Nagel as- the drug addict, Walter Huston as
the savage white leader, and Virginia Bruce as the
tortured convent girl are all admirably played.
Mhere is a faint attempt at comedy through the
cockney servant.

"A LL OF THE BEST KNOWN col-
leges are represented in Sing -Sing,"
a statement made recently by the chaplain of that
institution reveals, and according to the North
Carolina Tar Heel, he is inclined to believe that
the majority of the college graduates doing time
attribute their crimes to economic conditions.
The chaplain has stated that most of the col-
lege men are serving sentences for larceny or
forgery. Crimes that involve violence, such as rob-
bery and murder, are carefully shunned by the
college trained criminal, it seems.
The Tar Heel points out that the usual crime
committed by college men comes as a result of the
temptation to take money in the easiest possible
way, which is of course, larceny. But forgery is the
favorite method, a fact that the chaplain cannot
explain, as it is one of the easiest crimes to detect
and one in which the chances for a convictior
are excellent.
In the last analysis, however, the motive for
crime among college graduates is probably the
fact that, after graduation, when they are on
their own for the first time, quite naturally
their standard of living must go down, They find
it very difficult and inconvenient to adjust them-
selves to an income that is far below the pre-
graduation allowance from home. Consequently,
the great number of larceny and forgery crimes
and the absence of crimes of violence.
The 'Tar Heel says that only one college man
has been electrocuted at Sing Sing in the last 17
years. This is encouraging but not as encouragings
as another statement made by the chaplain, to the
effect -that he has not -yet observed any college
professors among his inmates.
Perhaps the professors are smarter than their
students and either do not commit crimes or are
not caught committing them.
At any rate, the Tar Heel points out, this state-
ment has redeemed higher education.

Forces Are Rising.. °

Wielp the University-keep.-the best young minds, or
hall higher education be reserved for the off-
pring of the wealthy? According to Miss Lloyd,
'there is no more reason for- thestate' support of,
tudents than- for state support -of all its citizens
--an obviously impossible move." I doubt that
-iss Lloyd would be opposed to the excellent sys-
em of scholarships now existing. The critics of
;he Good Will Fund look toward a radical exten-
.ion of this system to -worthy and able students.
"his does not mean that anyone could get special
upport from the state. by j, calling: himself a
student.
As Miss Lloyd points out, the state already pays
;wo-thirds of the cost of the University. Certainly
tate -education is the most socialistic institution
ve enjoy. Does it follow- then that the state should
not pay more?
Within two years every industrial country hasi
>een forced into the "obviously impractical move"
f supporting its citizens; even in our own land of
ocal charity. An enlightened state would provide
.n economic system capable of supporting all of'
.ts citizens without pauperizing them.
My purpose is not to-quibble with the adminis-
tration, nor to agitate against the Good Will Fund
(not even to slander the Daily). Personal feuds
.md headlines about Communists; cannot cover
;he real issues, for the Campus has discovered
.he depression.

aVARS OF DEFENSE
ro The Editor:
A. C. T. does not seem to realize that everys
Tar conducted in. modern times has been called
"a war of defense." The hypocriticalexplanations
riven by the Japanese government for each suc-
'essful raid upon China are classic examples of
'defensive" warfare. 3
