Another Blow
For Joe College .. .
comes someone's pleasant task to
re-inter Joe College. So gratifying is the job that
it usually seems well to make occasion for it if none
offers itself.
The latest opportunity for celebration is the
announcement by Dr. Walter A. Jessup, in his first
report of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advance-
ment of Teaching, that the "rah-rah"boy who
went to college to enjoy life is disappearing.
Dr. Jessup says the college man of today "is no
longer the blase, sophisticated student of the '20s;
he is a hard-working, serious-minded person who
demands more of the college library, the labora-
tory and the instructor than did his brother of a
decade ago."
In the long run, Dr. Jessup declares, the struggle
for survival among the 800 institutions of higher
learning in the United States will be determined
by their relative success in maintaining themselves
as seats of learning for students and staff.
While we are busy congratulating ourselves on
our superiority over our predecessors of 10 years
ago, it is always wise, however, to stop and check
occasionally against the example we so freely de-
Siam now has an orthographic New Deal: King

Vassar Goes To Town
WHEN A MARCH of 100 girls from Vassar and
Skidmore College girls to Albany to protest
the Nunan Act, requiring all college students to
take an oath of allegiance to the United States,
drew.editorial fire from Hearst papers throughout
the country, the college girls countered with an
"extra" of the "Hearsed Miscellany News" This
excerpt from the editorial, "Keep Our Women
Wholesome," goes to the tune of "America, the

An announcement says that a scholarship fund
has been established to provide free tuition for the
girl who discovers the most radicals.
There are approximately 1,500,000 living college
graduates in the-United States, accprdfng to one

According to a recent estimate, there are 3,400

Here's an actual letter received by a frater-
nity man at Cornell University from a week-
end party date:
"Dear Joe:
Thanks awfully for the grand week-end.
I think your room-mate is really smooth and
he is coming back to see me next week-end,
so please send my black purse back with him.
Your frat house was very cute even if we did
not have much room to dress and the beds
were none too comfortable. However, I did
not have too much time to sleep anyway so
that it really did not matter really. I enjoyed
knowing all the brothers but I am surprised
that your friends are not good dancers. I
suppose that you have to study too hard up
there to learn to dance well. I have to laugh
every time I think of the way you fell down-
stairs and cut your head, but when you ran
into the door it was too perfect for words. All
in all it was a great week-end and I hope you
can arrange another party soon. When you
can, write to me for I certainly enjoyed the
last one. Love,
P. S.: I am awfully sorry that y lost your
coat and wrecked your car, but accidents will
happen. Anyway I know that you thought the
week-end was worth it."
There is a co-ed at the University of Denver
whose hobby is the collections of buttons. She
has over 500, and that includes one from Lily Pons
and one from Sally Rand. Don't we all wonder
from where Sally removed that button?
At Ohio University one of the sociology
professors asked his class to give five reasons
for marriage. Boomed a voice from the rear
of the room, "A shot gun." Three other reasons
were given, but the class sat silent, stumped
for the fifth, Queried the professor, "All right,
what's the fifth?"
There was no answer.
Exasperated, the professor asked quietly,
"Hasn't anyone ever heard of love?"
The Chi Omegas have evolved a device for dis-
couraging midnight serenaders. A hole of sufficient
dimensions was dug on their lawn in a convenient
spot with startling results. It is not kown whether
the trap was conceived to ward off sour notes or
to retain the crooners for longer musicales.
Three professors were lunching at the Uni-
versity of Maryland on registration day.
"What kind of students are these," bewailed
one. "They come in and ask me: 'What's a
good course to take Monday at 10-any course
as long as it's at that hour.' That's a pretty
sad comnmentary."
"That's nothing," replied the second, "When
I was teaching at Dartmouth, I had an advisee
who bragged about never taking a course
later tan eleven o'clock."
To which the third added: "Nothing at all.
When I taught at N.Y.U., in a nine story
building-, I had a student come up and ask
me for a good course between the first and
third floors."
The University of Washington went to all the
trouble and expense of installing a new burglar
alarm in the locker room at the field house to catch
a sneak thief, and then some dumbhead reporter
wrote a front page feature in the college paper
describing the way the thing works so completely
that there is no possible excuse for the thief to
walk through thet tell-tale infra-red ray. The
power of the press?

A 'Brain Truster' Evaluates NRA
Editor Of 'Today' Asks Its Retention On Basis Of Necessity

(Reprinted from Today)
YES, THE NRA has been dying these months - if
to die be to seek silence, to engage in fewer
public controversies, to keep off the front page and
suddenly to become unsatisfactory copy for Wash-
ington correspondents. But all of these superficial
manifestations of death may be present in a very
vital organism.
The permanence of NRA rests, in the last analy-
sis, upon its necessity. Its vitality is as persistent
as the problem of government relationship to in-
dustry, which it was designed to meet. While that
problem lives, the NR A idea. canont die. Until we
have solved it, we must look forward to working, in
one application dr another, with the ideas behind
If government should not intervene somehow,
and somewhere to further the great social values
that have always marked government's justifi-
sation andpurpose, modern competition would re-
vert to a'dog-eat-dog process. Monopolies would
grow until the only competition we should have
would be between monopolie themselves. 'This
war of lumbering giants would end with fearful
NRA is the actually existing machinery by which
we are trying to work out a method of averting
the self-destructive tendencies of "an unrestrained
capitalism. If we believe, as I do, that, some kind
of machinery like this must exist, unles we can find
some substitute that is affirmatively better, there
is no alternative but to keep our present machin-
ery in existence.
It sliould be remembered always that NRA was
not created as a permanent solution of a govern-
mental problem. It was set up merely as one of
many emergency devices created to stop the on-
rush of deflation and to give a measure oftempo-
rarv stability to the industrial system. while, at

come from NRA? These are abolition of child labor,
abolition of uneconomic and unsocial competition
in the reduction of wages in the lower brackets,
the beginnings of a system of collective bargaining
based upon some sort of semi-judicial process and
the beginnings of a system of industrial law de-
signed to reduce commercial corruption and anti-
social competition within industry. In addition to
these permanent gains, there is the indubitable fact
that NRA has put some,4,000,000 persons back toE
work. These benfeits are generally conceded.
On the other hand, there can be little argument
as to the things NRA has failed to do. It has failed
in one of its chief emergency tasks - raising the
income of the individual workers -largely because
of a rise in the cost of living and the spread ofI
actual available work to mere people.f
NRA has taught us that, in some fields at least,
there are definite limitations upon what the Fed-
eral government can do. One such limitation arises
in connection with the regulation of service trades.
The many conflicts and overlappings in the
codes are shortcomings generally recognized. These,
together with the sheer number of regulations em-I
bodied in the codes, have definitely slowed up bus-
iness. The uncertainty and caution which they have
instilled in business men have been a deflationary

In looking to the future, the one course that
seems to be precluded is to discard the NRA com-
pletely. Some flexible administrative agency is
essential if industry is to adjust itself to constantly
changing methods of business enterprise. In a world
where the frontiers are closed, in a world of na-
tionalistic barriers, a world of increasing self-suf-
ficiency and in a highly industrialized world, indus-
trial laissez-faire is unthinkable.
