L Ri A T1EIN Labor Leaders In Washington Strike Conference
(By Intercollegiate Press)
COLUMBUS,- Junior college co-
eds don't smoke, whatever their older
sisters on regular college campuses
may do about it.
This, at least, was the information
given officials attending the annual
convention of the American Associa-
tion of Junior Colleges.
A round table discussion by pri-
vate junior college officials revealed
that out of approximately 100 such
schools represented, only eight girls'
institutions and six co-educational
schools permitted women students to
smoke. Some of those permitting it
require written permission of parents.
Some of the speakers said that in
co-ed schools which ban smoking
there was a tendency to wink at in-
fractions by men, but discipline the
feminine offenders. One delegate
said his school banned smoking be-
cause of the old prejudice against
"nice girls" using the weed.
Aid For Cold
Ephedrine has proven extremely
beneficial in the treatment of such
ailments as colds. hay fever, sinus
trouble, epilepsy, and bronchial dis-
eases, Dr. K. K. Chen, director of
pharmacological research in the Lilly
Research Laboratories, Indianapolis,
pointed out yesterday in his lecture
on "Ephedrine" in the Chemistry
Doctor Chen stated that this drug
was isolated from the "Ma Huang,"
a herb used by the Chinese for cen-
turies to relieve coughs, to produce
sweating, and to reduce fever, but
only the chemical properties were
examined at first. Together with
Professor Schmidt of the University
of Pennsylvania, he began research
work in the pharmacological appli-
cation, with successful results.
Since the "Ma Huang" grows
abundantly in China, and is also
raised in Indian and Europe, the
supply is almost inexhaustible, he

NEW YORK, March 26. - Prof.
Walter B. Pitkin, the Columbia jour-
nalism teacher who gained interna-
tional fame with his book, "Life Be-
gins at Forty," looked genially
through his horn-rimmed spectacles
and foresaw the day when:
Money will be as cheap as labor
- and labor will be as cheap as dirt.
Labor will disappear almost com-
The decline in wages will have
gone further than it has to date.
The decline in the earning power
of dollars will have gone on to the
point where, perhaps, 7 per cent in-
terest will be considered fair.
Then he went on to envision hap-
pier things, such as:'
Despite the decline, the things the
average American will be able to en-
joy will be greatly multiplied.
Fewer people will be considered for
jobs after they pass 40, but in the
handling of large, expensive machin-
ery, and in the professions, where
personal service must be rendered,
the man who has passed 40 will be
the man saught.
The life span will be increased be-
cause those who have passed 40 will
not have to do heavy work.
"We are practically through with
the machine age," he said. "It will
be only a matter of a few decades
before people have forgotten it, and
will be living in the power age, the
presence of which at first will seem
like catastrophe, but which will be
the greatest blessing we ever had.
