the world except the race of the greyhound
after the electric hare. Leave all that to the
romantic and ignorant Americans, who happen
to be, like myself, blond, and six feet high.
What there is, and probably always will be
during one epoch, is the solid fact that out of
every hundred persons, only five at most will
be capable of making decisions and giving di-
rections Whether the five are called Nordics
or blond beasts, or simply bosses, does not
matter a scrap. It is pleasant for Hans and
Fritz to imagine themselves Allerhoechst, be-
cause they have their flaxen hair and blue
eyes . . : I have never taught "the biological
gospel of a new race-aristocracy." My con-
tempt for that disguise of simple snobbery is
unbounded . . . There is no such thing as a
Superman. There are super mathematicians
like Einstein, and super playwrights like my-
self; but they are bungling amateurs in a dozen
other departments of human activity. In the
theatre I am my chauffeur's master; but in the
garage he is mine . . . I know barely enough
German to understand the title of your books,
and nothing on earth would induce me to
read one of them, though your letter is amus-
ing enough to extract this answer from me
on a very wet day in Stresci. Thank you for it.

Are Too High .. .
T HE INADEQUACY of our present
legal system in civil cases was
strikingly brought out recently when it was report-
ed that a New York man spent three years
and incurred costs of $3,000 in a law suit to recover
overcharges made by a telephone company total-
ling $5.40. The victory was entirely a moral one.
Business is beginning to turn more and more
away from litigation in the courts as the costs
mount higher and higher. Open book accounts are
carried for months by firms that cannot collect
their bills because "the legal costs of a law suit to
force collection would be more than the amount of
the bill," as many business men will aver.
Lawyers themselves proclaim with pride that
they are preventing litigation more and more these
days, settling many of their cases out of court.
What does not come to light is that the settle-
ment out of court is often grossly unfair to the
man who cannot afford attorney's fees, while it
favors the man who is well equipped to wage a
If the courts can arrive at a just decision, they
ought to be used more, and it ought to be the duty
of the lawyers to encourage the use of the courts
by insisting on a reduction of court costs. By so
doing, they would in the long run increase their
amount of business and hence their fees, aside from
the benefit which the change would work in the
relations between business men.

THE NORDIC MYTH
To The Editor:
It is well known that the Nazis lay particular
stress upon superiority of the Nordic race, An
amusing incident occurred in this connection when
a certain Dr. Franz Haiser, an Austrian Nazi, felt
uncertain about the wisdom of some of the Hitler
planks, more especially, it seems, the one regard-
ing the suneriority of the Nordie rae Tn nrder

AT THE MAJESTIC
** "SONS OF THE DESERT"
With Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy
NO STARS "KEEP 'EM ROLLING"
Benny .................. Walter Huston
The two inimitable comedians are back again.
They are not Arabians but are instead ultra-hen-
pecked husbands of two shrews they have learned
to call wives. Determined to keep their solemn
fraternal oath to attend their national convention
at Chicago, they bribe a veterinarian to prescribe
a trip to the South Seas as a cure. They get to
the windy city, fooling their wives.
Messrs. Laurel and Hardy are funny and the
audience's reception was hearty and vociferous. A
thin plot ,old situations, plenty of slap-stick, and a
bag full of bad puns all contribute to what we
Americans like and call humor. The fact that these,
films have a drawing power substantiates our edu-
cators accusations against us that we have a cul-
"Keep 'Em Rolling" is frank propaganda of the
old destructive war machine as it gathers momen-
tum in its malicious attempt to arouse us to a
blind frenzy of war preparedness and the glorifica-
tion of brass buttons. This propaganda is a bad
job because one easily recognizes it as such. Walter
Huston's acting is bad in his unsuccessful attempt
to portray the character of a silly and emotionally
childish soldier who lives, sleeps, and eats with his
pet horse. The theme is obviously to show us what
a paradise it is to be a soldier.
A series of disjointed sequences beginning in 1915
and carrying us to the present time constitute the
film's poor continuity. The producers of this film
(Radio) tried to disguise the real theme by an in-
sistent harping on the love old Benny had for his
horse. In these trying times every art should be
utilized to secure world peace and economic secur-
ity. Films of this type serve only to aggravate the
situation and are destructive to the peace every-
one desires. One's refusal to see such a film will
make it a financial failure and will discourage
others of its calibre from being produced.

Keats when disappointed in love, made the
statement that his heart had turned to ashes. The
Farthest North Collegian at College, Alaska says
that fickle women do sort of burn a guy up. (Even
up in the frigid climates I guess.)

Chi Omegas cuties true,
And pops all chewing gum,
Alpha Chi's and Tri-Delts too,
May be all right for some,
But I'll just take the little girl,
Who is a Delta Gam,
Who'll drink and smoke and love you too,
And never give a damn.

from astudent a-sophomore at Cornell said:
"Ask him 'what "it" is, and if he says it's a
pronoun he's a professor."

MARY SPAULDING, for her graduation recital
tomorrow night in the School of Music Audi-
torium, has a program covering the chronological
range of literature, besides containing works that
are unusual and infrequently heard. The Bach
Toccata, for instance, is little known; it was an
experiment in form and rhythms, the adagio in
the last movement, particularly, with its "rubato-
like feeling in tempo." The Burnt Rock Pool is, of
course, American in source and inspiration, the re-
sult of a trip in the North. The Prokofieff will be
done in a serious vein, rather than a satirical one.
as a thing for its own sake, rather than as a
parody of eighteenth century forms.
