labours in its behalf were being reduced to naught.
Did he think himself a failure?
We hope he did not. Men who have devoted
their life-long efforts to an attempt at ameliorat-
ing the unjust conditions of humanity will never
be failures even if their material accomplishments
come to naught, for by their precept alone they
have brought inspiration to their fellow-men.
Maj. Gen. Adolphus W. Greely, one of seven men
to survive an expedition to the Arctic on which
twenty-five started out, died in his 91st year Sun-
His life had become a tragic epic from the day
in 1881 when he, with his party of 25 soldiers, set.
out to venture farther north than any other be-
fore him. One of his group, an eskimo, was
drowned; another was shot by Greely's orders for
pilfering food when rations were growing short;
the others, according to Greely's diary, literally ate
their boots, then munched dry lichens and gnawed
the remnants of their seal-skin clothing strug-
gling to stay alive. With frozen hands they,
struggled over the ice in vain search for animal
life, sometimes killing a seal or a bear only to see
its body sink between ice floes at their feet.
Returning to the United States with valuable
scinetific data, he found himself demoted because
of political reasons, and it was a full half-century
before he was granted official recognition for his
heroic work.
Bringing laughter into the daily doldrummic ex-
istences of millions of people on every continent,
Sidney Smith was no less an apostle than the
He was the creator of a group of characters
whose antics became endeared to adults no less
than children.
"I think the biggest things I've learned about
people, through the Gumps," said Smith some
time ago, "are, first that what they want is a clean
and wholesome character in their fun; and, sec-
ond, that they like best of all those pictures in
which they see themselves or their friends pic-
tuied through the daily happenings in the lives
of the Gumps."
Through a cartoonist with so high a conception
of his own function, reading the comic strips be-
came more than a mere matter of mental relaxa-
tion. These grotesque antics became commen-
taries on life, and are indeed a healthy sign, for
when we can laugh at ourselves through the laugh-
ing pens of men like Sidney Smith, we may be
said to have possession of a sanity less likely to
be lost in times of national duress.

with two flagons of beer; and so walked, of all
things, home with my wife.

Miss Millay's and so all to the zoo in Central Park,
such a great crowd there pressing that I had little
joy of it, save when my daughter said, "The el-

said that the hippopotamus was pretty silver. So

U P AT SEVEN, and read as much as was avail-
able about the war, which will probably be
named the Mussolini war, in honor of its launcher.
But I do not know how much truth there is in
the stories of the war, forasmuch as nothing can
be sent that is not censored, so there must be
printed only what Italy allows to be sent, or, .for
that matter, Ethiopia. But Lord! it was like
that in the World War, too, and it would have
been hard for a soldier to write to America, or to
England, from France, that perhaps here and there
was a kind-hearted German; or even that Goethe,
the rumor ran, may have had talent. So to the
office, and there most of the day, working at
many things, and so home for supper, and stopped
at home all evening, discussing budget matters

much brandy as Mr. Tracy did, albeit I do not
like it. But Miss Jean Dixon and Mr. Louis Heydt,

The war department has all the
records on, its arrival, but there
is no record as to where the stone
masons finally lodged it in con-

The story illustrates why guards at
the interior building swear by their
chief, Secretary Ickes. A taxi pulled
up one Sunday afternoon and a man
with a portfolio demanded entrance
at a closed door.
"Sorry, sir. Not open today. Use
the center entrance," said the guard.,
"Why, do you know who I am?"
blustered the man. "I'm a congress-

Function Of
Union Forums ...
among educators that freshmen
find it very difficult to "bridge the gap" between
preparatory school and college. Many problems
arise during the interval when freshmen are ceas-
ing to be mere "greenhorns" and are becoming
true University students.
By informal group discussion and by the com-
ments of a University faculty member the series
of Freshman Forums, sponsored jointly by the
Interfraternity Council and the Union, seek to
solve many of the problems which may have arisen
during transition period.
Many such problems present themselves. In
the first place, few freshmen know how to study
and find it necessary to revise their methods com-
pletely 'during the first semester. Also the per-
ennial problem of selecting a field for concentra-
tion begins to perplex every new student. Unless
this question is settled satisfactorily, a freshman
may find four years later that he is graduating
with training in a field in which he has very little
Finally, it is during the first college year that
interest in intellectual pursuits is developed, if
such are ever developed. If freshmen do not real-
ize this, it is very probable that half of their time
spent at the University will have been wasted.
The forums, which begin today and which will
follow on each Tuesday of the successive weeks,
will aid freshmen in solving many of their per-
sonal problems. Not only will the new men be
able to realize the views of their classmates on
such questions but they will have the opportunity
to draw on the invaluable experience of a faculty
man at every session.

Handbill Passing
To the Editor:
It seems to me that your editorial entitled
"Handbill Passing Vs. A College Education" is an
attempt to obfuscate the issue involved, and to
place Miss Folkoff and Mr. Opler in the wrong.
I am in complete accord with what you say about
the necessity of obeying the rules of the Univer-
sity, but when these rules are not existent except in
the minds of certain people and especially when
they are not applicable to all members of the
student body, an element of personal discrimina-
tion enters into the picture and schanges things
I want it clearly understood that I am not a
member of the National Student League. However,
one must be very naive indeed to believe that
the content of the offending leaflets had nothing
to do with the suspension. For years organiza-
tions of every kind and nature have distributed
leaflets and handbills on the campus. From the
student political parties to the National Student
[eague, all sorts of leaflets have been passed out
on the campus. Now, suddenly, and solely directed
against these two members of the N.S.L., Univer-
sity action is taken. Can it be consistently main-
tained that this action is unrelated to the political
leanings of the students? Can it be intelligently
irgued that they have broken a rule which everyone
knows and obeys, and hence are subject to dis-
cipline therefor?
I am not going to go into the prejudicial and
unfair aspects of your editorial, for I do not be-
ieve that many students expect much else from
you. I do, however, want to make this one point.
[f the University wants to be fair and honest,
and to dispel from the minds of many of us that
t is becoming arbitrarily discriminatory, let it
nake known that it will prosecute and punish all
handbill passing on the campus, regardless of the
contents thereof, and regardless of the political,
esidential and racial qualifications of the handbill'
passers. -"The Eye."

THIS MORNING I read a fine article in the Yale
Review by Chauncey Tinker, on Housman's
Poetry, and there were two things that I wish
I might have said: "He knows the folly of trying
to prolong one's-success unduly. With the bitter
knowledge that comes only in middle age he real-
ized that flowers from his garden may not always
be 'the wear.' He is not the man to linger on
the scene till his audience begins to melt away,
but rather prefers to make an end before his
admirers have realized their delight . . . Every
phrase tells. His climax catches us unaware like a
blow upon the mouth, a blow carefully placed,
delivered, with full knowledge of its deadly force,
by a professional." So at the office, and there at
work, and then read George Britt's "Forty Years
-Forty Millions: the Career of Frank A. Munsey."
What I think of when I read about a newspaper
publisher is whether I should have liked to work
on his paper, and I knew when I met that I could
not have, and now I am doublly certain. For he
was a vain and humorously dull man, and I wish
that Mr. Britt had included what Bert Taylor
said about the Munsey blight: "All good news-
papers when they die go to Munsey." So fell to
work in the afternoon and at it till near seven
o'clock, and in the evening out till past two in
the morning at helping W. Brockway compile an
index to a booklet of mine.
Thursday, October 17
READ HOW YESTERDAY Governor Earle of New
Jersey made a speech, and he spoke of "the
factory riots in England a century ago and inspired
Elizabeth Barrett Browning to write her memorable
'Song of the Shirt.'" Lord! that was the time
she used the pseudonym of Thomas Hood. Per-
haps Governor Earle was thinking of "The Cry of
the Children," which Mrs. Browning was inspired
to write because of the failure to enact a child
labor law. So read John O'Hara's "Butterfield-8,"
and I could not lay it down till I had finished it,
a swift and moving tayle of the alcoholics who
flitted from speakeasy to speakeasy, and as true
a tayle of the thoughts and emotions of such
people as can be. Mr. Harry B. Smith sends me
a "Catalogue of the Well-Known Collection of
Relics of Samuel Pepys," the collection that was
sold at auction at Sotheby's in 1931. What I
should like to have most would be Sir Godfrey
Kneller's portrait of Samuel Pepys, but not much
else, I being no collector of such things, or come
to think of it, of anything, not having the patience
to collect anything. And even in the days when
I was a bill collector for the Transatlantic Fire
Insurance Company, I did not have the patience
to be a success at it, but would listen sympathetic-
ally to the men who told me that they ought to
have more insurance, and to come around next

This is one of the most pleasant
pictures of the year and is full of
laughs, good music, and capable stars.
It'll be a long time before we get
enough of Frances Langford's sing-
ing, Eleanor Powell's dancing, Jack
Benny's comedy, or the dancing of the
Ebsen team.
The show is replete with hit songs
such as "You Are My Lucky Star,"
"Broadway Rhythm," "On a Sunday
Afternoon," "I've Got a Feelin' You're
Foolin'," and "Sing Before Breakfast."
Miss Langford does most of the sing-
ing; Miss Powell dances even better
than she did the last time we saw her;
and Benny is perfect as the dirt-sling-
ing columnist whose pay goes up the
more times he gets called "rat."
Vilma and Buddy Ebsen, brother
and sister dancers, are particularly
good in their "Sing Before Breakfast"
skit atop a tenement house. Robert
Taylor as the hero and producer of
shows scores again and should go a
long way in the profession.
There are some good dance num-
bers, including a ballet staged by Al-
bertina Rasch. Among the minor
players who deserve praise are Sid
Silvers, who takeg the part of Benny's
stooge, and Robert Wildhack, whose
snoring act is a panic all by itself.
Una Merkle is as capable and funny
as ever.

As Others See It_
Berlin Marks Its Reckless Drivers
(From The St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
BERLIN'S ideas may not be in good repute in
the outside world nowadays .but at last one has
been produced that is at least worth filing for
future reference. This is the method to be used
there for dealing with traffic law violators. A
yellow ring, it is reported, will be painted on the
cars of drivers who have committed minor offenses.
A large yellow cross will be placed on cars of hab-
itual violators This has mor erealism to conmmend

The problem of parking cars per-
plexed the University. In a tenta-
tive arrangement, only those on the
faculiy who had the ranking of an
instructor or higher should be allowed
to park on University property, but
even then there was not enough room
for all the cars.
Registrar Ira M. Smith submitted
a plan to the Board of Regents calling
for the deletion of superfluous ma-
terial from the annual catalogue of
the University. Descriptions of courses
would be omitted fromn the catalogue
under this plan.
Every available pullman car in the

modate the large crowd of alumni and

The principals in this picture do
their best with what is a bit too trite
to be a good picture. Handicapped
by a weak story which is a little too
gushy to be convincing, and by the
lack of any but mediocre music, the
story is saved only through the com-
edy efforts of Powell's three room-
mates at the Academy. Miss Keeler
dances only twice and one of these
times is negligible, so her presence in
the picture has no effect on the gen-
eral scheme.
