Theories To Cure
Professors here at the university,
tired of having students sleeping in
their classes, stayed up late one night
recently and formulated 15 ways to
keep a student awake.
One professor claims that he keeps
his class awake by sitting back on his
chair on the edge of the speakers
platform. The students all stay awake
for fear they will miss seeing him fall
Other professors think the best
method is to plant a "stooge" in the
middle of the room. He contradicts
the professor and makes some "wild"
statement. The class gets angry and
starts to back. Presto! everyone is
It is not necessary for a professor
to tell a joke every day, say the
professors. If the professor repeats
the same joke every day, the class
will become accustomed to it and will
stay awake just to laugh at it once
Typical devices and techniques in-
clude discussions of controversial top-
ics - "Hitler is right concerning the
Jews," reminiscences- "Now when
I was a boy," - polemics, "apparently
io one in this class has the ingenuity
There is the professor on the cam-
pus who proudly boasts that five or
six of his students have suffered
mental aberrations in his class.
Rose Talks To Chemists
On Important New Acid
Details of the discovery and isola-
tion of a new amino acid present in
proteins were given at 4:15 p. m.
Tuesday in the Chemistry Amphi-
theatre by Dr. W. R. Rose, professor
of physiological chemistry at the Uni-
versity of Illinois.
This new amino acid, Dr. Rose said,
is very important in nutrition and is
present in large quantities in the
casein of milk. He discussed riumer-
ous processes by which the compound
was separated out from the 30 or
more other amino acids present in
proteins, and showed by means of
slides the effects which this and
other compounds have on the growth
of rats used in the experiments.
We can never expect that the des-
tinies of nations and peoples can be
disposed of by compromise or arbi-
tration. America, like Alexander, is
looking for new worlds to conquer.

Phi Beta Kappa
Prof. Bennett Weaver Says
'American Scholar' Is A
Forum Of Critical Ideas
The American Scholar, a magazine
published quarterly by Phi Beta
Kappa, national scholastic honor so-
ciety, was characterized as "an ex-
cellent forum for critical ideas" by
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the English
"Addressing itself to the general
intelligence of the American people,
The American Scholar invites Uni-
versity people to think upon the
basic problems of life," Professor
This magazine is now in its second

Our Literature" is the title of a con-
tribution by Prof. Howard Mumford
Jones of the English department ap-
pearing in the May issue.
