The Opera.. .
A COMMITTEE of the Board of Di-
rectors of the Union is now engaged
in helping interested students to write books
to be submitted for next year's Union Opera. There
are not a great many students profiting by this
service, and those that are have not been able
to give much time to it.
Yet unless a book which has sufficient merit to
satisfy the committee is submitted by April 15,
there will be no opera next year.
It may very well be that the total enrollment
of this University is not sufficient to support all
of the yearly dramatic and musical programs here.
If this is the case, they certainly should be cut
But if the Union Opera goes out of existence,
the men of the University will have lost their only
independent production-a fine tradition will have
been ended through apathy.
For Matanuska ...
T HE UNITED STATES has sent 60
starving families from Michigan
to supposed haven in the Matanuska Valley of
Alaska. It sent them there to start farming on
the fertile lands with the hope of eking out a
living in great contrast with the former conditions
of these families.
The government, spending $100,000 in prepara-
tion for the first settleemnt and planning to spend
close to $1,000,000 more, saw a chance to send
these and other farmers away from sub-marginal
lands in this country into a land of comparatively
Several members of the forestry school, however,
point out that the government has apparently
overlooked the prospect of a market for the new
settlcrs in this remote region. Prof. Dow V. Bax-
ter, who has made two recent trips to the site
chosen by the government, says there is no town
of more than 3,000 within 1,500 miles of the Mata-
nuska Valley. All these two towns are now amply
supplied so that the market will be very limited,
he says. Furthermore, high rail rates to the near-
est fair-sized market, Vancouver, will make it
impossible to compete with the nearer Canadian
The condition in Alaska would not be so un-
favorable for these newcomers were it not for.theI
fact that the number of crops which can be grown
in this territory is exceedingly limited. It is neces-
sary, then, that these farmers find a market for
their limited crops in order to obtain the other
rBecessities of life if they are to live in this region.
Alaskahas great possibilities for lumbering, fish-
Ing and mining, but short seasons and limited
riarkets greatly lessen the agricultural outlook. It
was natural enough that the transported farmers
should have grabbed at any ch'ance which might
possibly bring them relief. They do not know much
Ibout the conditions of the land to which they
vre going. They were desperate.
If the transplanting of families from stricken
areas is necessary and desirable, as it may be,
the government will have to plan more wisely
than this in the future.

Contrary to the aims of collegiate schools of
business administration, recent surveys and com-
putations show that only one or two out of every
five college students can become successful bus-
iness men. The other three or four are doomed to
be misfits, mediocrities or failures.
BUD BERNARD'S LESSON NUMBER ONE
Taking A Shower
Step one: Turn on water tap marked "hot." A
thick jet of steam will pour out followed by a
rush of. ice-cold water.
Step two: Leave water running while you go for
a towel and soap. By this time the water should be
Step three: Turn on "cold" faucet. Shower will
stop running entirely.
Step Iaur: When water starts running again
you will find it the exact temperature. Do not
be alarmed. Merely step under the shower and
the water will (a) stop running; (b) turn cold;
(c) turn hot; (d) turn a darkish brown color and
seem full of dirt.
Step five: Get out of shower and wash face and
hands at wash basin. Go to your room and dress.
Just before leaving the house, turn off the shower,
which has been running perfectly since you left it.

Peace And Propaganda
(From The Oregon Daily Emerald)
SOME TIME AGO we suggested that the efforts
of the peace societies would prove unavailing
unless they found some way to strip war of its
glamour, its excitement and adventure.
To begin with, it would be necessary for the
group to have an advertising appropriation as large
as that of any major cigarette company, for this
is primarily a propaganda proposition.
Second, the group must have a corps of lobby-
ists fully as large and active as the munitions men,
and a director who is clever, unscrupulous and
They should begin with an illustrated billboard,
magazine, and newspaper campaign. Not the dig-
nified, restrained matter printed heretofore, but
headlines that shriek their message, pictures that
burn it on the brain.
Make the horror, waste, and insanity of war
LIVE for everyone able to see or read.
Show them broken, mangled men across a field
gun; fire-gutted houses; the horribly smashed
wreckage of war planes; cold, mute bodies piled
like faggots; sour, shell-pitted fields and a sky-
line of mutilated trees.
Associate every branch of the Army, Navy,
and air force with some scene of horror, and
hammer it home, day after day, month after
month, year after year. Film talkie shorts with
martial music as their background, and for their
.scenes havoc, destruction, and death; so that the
thrill is gone even from the bugles and the drums.
As for the legislative bodies, congressmen can
be bought, threatened, or persuaded until legisla-
tion with teeth is enacted, taking away all the
profits from munitions manufacturing, and apply-
ing the same penalty as treason bears to any per-
son convicted of inciting war for personal gains.
But this burden cannot be assumed by one nation
alone. Every important nation must inaugurate it
at the same time, for under the present system of
balance of power, the United States or any other
nation that attempts to proceed alone would be
1?enalized severely, and perhaps disastrously, by the
more greedy and self-centered countries.
First an agreement must be reached between
nations, and then the campaign can begin.
Student Government High
(From The Daily Texan)
rfHE FIRST STEP of the Alsup bill for state-
owned, non-profit-making book stores will be
had next Wednesday night (Feb. 20) when it is
considered by the House committee on education.
Appearing before that committee will be John
Bell, president of the Students' Association, end
cther interested students. For the first time in
many years the students have shaken off their
lethargy and are determined to make a satisfactory
settlement of their own affairs. This is student gov-
ernment at its best. This is a glowing example of
the advantages of a democracy.
What is essential now is the cooperation of the
rank and file of the student body. Your student
officials have acted, and acted in a most praise-
worthy fashion. Now it is your turn to help.
You can do this by giving to President Bell and
any member of the Assembly your suggestions,
your information, and your sentiments in regard
to this problem. Remember that the bookstore
problem is a vital one with you. It affects your
pocketbook. Its satisfactory solution will depend
in large measure upon the interest which you take
in it and the influence which you exert to make
a reasonable settlement of this age old question.
Off The Record
By SIGRID ARNE
WASHINGTON, March 23.
THE FACE of Sen. J. Ham Lewis of Illinois
assumed a "Puck-ish" smile as the two other
senators tangled on the work-relief bill.
Sen. Royal S. Copeland of New York, who is a
physician, and Sen. Henry F. Ashurst of Arizona
vere discussing whether work-
elief money would be used to
nlarge military cemeteries.
"Cemeteries will need enlarg-
ng," said Copeland angrily, "for
hose who die of starvation be-
.ore we pass this bill.
"The senator," grinned Ash-
'rst, "knows more about ceme-
<eries than 'I do."
Lewis rose solemnly.
"May I be pardoned for re-
narking," he said, "this is at
1z"SuvAL $ sLArP east a grave subject."
From the government's grab-bag of mail:
"I believe I owe five months' rent, but I will
know for sure when the landlord comes."
"We are living with my sister's husband who
died last month."
"I've changed my mind about wanting a cow.
I think I'll take a beautician's course instead."
THITE HOUSE guards converged quickly on a
man entering the executive offices with a large,
shapeless bundle under his arm.
Anyone entering the offices must be known, and
if he carries anything the contents must be ex-

"It's an easel."
"Well, if it's alive," replied the guard, "you can't
bring it in here."
President Roosevelt was entertaining new
members of Congress. He dug in his pockets
and then begged a cigarette from one man, a
match from another.
"All I have," he explained, "is the desire
for a smoke."
