fortunate as it is, leads them only, in most cases,
to petty misdolngs. We may therefore reason-
ably expect to find a shift in their environment
corresponding to the increasing seriousness of
their offenses. It is impossible to ascertain all
the factors of their environment between the
periods of minor and major criminality, but it
is very easy to lay a finger on one place where
they are thrown into the company of experts in
the profession they are to join. Penal institu-
tions, by allowing all classes of criminals to mix,
serve more as schools for crime than in the re-
medial capacity assigned them by society.
Progress is being made in many states toward'
the segregation of criminal classes, but the facts
revealed in the government survey demonstrate
that there is a world of improvement still to be
done. Any political moves in this direction de-
serve support.

Editorial Comment
Times of strife and turmoil always bring doubt
and dejection. Even the firmest of institutions are
subject to the shocks from violent social and
economic changes such as those that are now en-
suing. Since we are now in the midst of the great-
est upheaval of the machine age, it is well that
the engineering institutions in particular should
look to their laurels. They must determine
whether or not the engineering graduate of today
is fitted to cope with the problems of the future
and whether or not the present principles of en-
gineering education will be applicable a decade
Many persons have suggested that there are
too many engineers. There may be too many tech-
nicians but there can never be too many engineers
if engineers realize that they must solve economic
and soial problems as well as purely technical
propositions. This fact is in reality the major
issue which has been evolved In the past few
It has been said that the downfall of a civiliza-
tion is caused by the genius of its development.
Any civilization prospers only until its units of
-production and consumption become s large
that the solution of the problems which they
present is beyond the scope of the human brain.
Then the civilization falters. Even the leading
scientists of our day, who claim to have knowl-
edge of the intricate workings of stellar space
at their very fingertips, seem unable to tell us
the solution of our seemingly minor problems of
social and economic life.
If the educators and engineers of the future
are to forestall a catastrophe in our day, then
they must become more tolerant and more liberal
with the humanities. They must dispense with the
many and varied minor details and teach the
student more of the fundamental and basic prin-
ciples of engineering procedure. In addition, they
must season this knowledge with a greater under-
standing of how the accomplishments of the en-
gineer can be made to mesh; to synchronize with,
and to be applied to the problem of living. For
after all, in the final analysis, the improvement
of the conditions of life must be the aim of every
If such be the education of an engineer, then he
will be far more than a mere technician. He will
find that his accomplishments are received more
favorably by the layman, that his profession will
have a far greater influence than it has at pres-
ent, and that he will become a far more valuable
asset to his fellow-men. He will find that there
never 'can be too many of his kind.

Personality, not brains, is the reason for a girl's
success, Dr. H. W. Mikesell, profesor of psychology
at the Wichita University, believes.
"Psychology has determined by actual experi-
ment that success depends 85 per cent upon per-
sonality and 15 per cent on brains," he states.
Brains are our natural endowment from hered-
ity. The best that we can do is to develop achieve-
ment quotients within our limit.
Personality as the sum total of a person's make-
up gives a broad field of growth and develop-
ment, and places 85 per cent of our success on
our own initiative. Courtesy, co-operation, depend-
ability, friendliness, all contribute to the charm
of the admirable personality-and hence to one's
Winthrop gives wide opportunities for brain
achievement-but what of personality develop-
ment? That is here, too: reading, culture, adap-
tability to varied personalities of students and
instructors-many things for developing inner
selves and charm. Will we use them to develop
our charm and contribute to our success?

sailing this summer in a rented cat-boat., A
squall came up and a rag which had been
stuffed into the bottom of the boat as caulk-

rammed the boat into shore so hard that
the bottom was stove in. The owner sued
for $50 damages on the $15 boat so Skipper
Sharp hired a lawyer, made two trips to Port

Somebody left a loaded- .38 revolver lying
around in a prominent State Street fraternity.
Brother Jack Wierengo picked it up, inspected
it, and it went off missing the ear of Brother
George (Cookie-Cutter) Wanty by six inches.
Brother Wierengo looked -at the hole in the
wall, looked at Brother Wanty, looked at the
gun, said "Dammit."
A VERY DRUNK approached a couple of small
co-eds and announced that he was going to
escort them home. "Thish," he announced, "is an
exshperiment. I don't believe that coedsh are ash

smaller of the girls, who is very small indeed,
hauled off and layed one on him, he looked sur-
prised, hurt, walked off a little way and delivered
this Parthian shot with inebriated dignity: "Now
you're being ridiculoush."

when he said 3.2 beer would put the illegal beer

Many of the situations which "Song of the

as has been said, only by the popular appeal of
a 3.2 beer scenario. The six strongest members

Supposedly appealling to the younger constitu-
ency of an audience are Universal's 4 foot, 11
inch Sidney Fox and starirng, youthful Eric Lin-
den. In "Afraid to Talk" sympathy is rallied
about this pair through the medium of a murder
frame-up on Linden by virtue of which the pitch-
stained political bosses of a certain city hope to
avoid penitentiary sentences for fraud.
Gorillas carry on guerilla warfare with their
Thompsons, Vickerses, and Brownings; children
are shot down Ain the street; Linden is mauled to
unconsciousness by police -third-degree men; and
champagne flows freely. The result is a cleanup
