Hallowe'en Pranks

derland"; to us they are more weird still. It seems
the modern American child will no longer learn
his alphabet or how to read in English class but
will investigate the mysteries of how to use the
telephone; how to entertain guests and be a guest;
how to write notices, recipes, telegrams and ad-
vertisements; how to enjoy newspaper comic
strips and how to attend the cinema and listen
to the radio.
Among the thousand references in the new
curriculum, Shakespeare is mentioned six times.
Restoration dramatists of such lesser literary lights
have been replaced by S. S. Van Dine, whose
"Bishop Murder Case' 'is recommended to teach
children to play tag with authors of intricate
and subtle mystery stories." Paul Siple's "A Boy
Scout with Byrd" and Post and Gatty's "Around
the World in Eight days" will replace out-moded
hero tales.
Film and radio are greatly emphasized. Radio
study will enable the next generation "To find
and enjoy satisfying sermons, lectures and other
uplift broadcasts." "To be interested in ethical
and intellectual problems. To distinguish between
genuine sentiment and insincerity or sentimen-
tality. To remember and use strikingly effective
statements or illustrations.'
The learned Council, doubtless having heard
the rumor that the art of conversation has waned,
have taken care of the whole matter with the
following course:
"Social Objective: To have a sufficient stock of
jokes, anecdotes, limericks. To slip in an occa-
sional pun or amusing comparison of something
mentioned by another. To yield to the comic
spirit and enjoy the fun-making by others. To
gain conciseness by substituting participial phrases
for adjective and even adverbial clauses."
When the movement spreads to the English
departments of the college there will probably
be classes in "How to Yell at Football Games,"
"Variations in Telephonic Date-Breaking," "Min-
ute Speeches to be Delivered Over a Glass of Beer"
and "How to Give Directions to a Cab Driver"
We will not attempt to criticize the "Experi-
mental English Curriculum," for it evaluates itself.
We will observe that the picture of a nation of
telegraphing punsters gives us the shudders.

SANCTION
Let all who call the Duke sublime
Because the trains now run on time
And clean is each Italian street,
Turn homeward now lest they should meet u
Those trains, from scheduled time set free, f

Mr. W. R. Hearst has been writing a good
deal recently, and there is a lot to be said for a
his style; to us, at least, it has charm. But he is
an unforgiving fellow. On Wednesday night, in w
the Hollywood Barber Shop, 1570 Broadway, at I?
Forty-Seventh Street, Martin Krompler was shot.
The Times's subhead fixes the place as the "Broad-p
way Barber Shop." But the American, in an enor-u
mous headline, had "Gunmen Wound 2 in Times7
Sq." Why, Mr. Hearst, even Jersey City has its t
Journal Square.h
Of course, there is Post Avenue, too. There is nof
Herald Tribune Street, but there is Herald Square, q
and appropriately melting into it, Greeley Square.h
Atlantic City has invited Mr. Hearst to make
his residence there, and the town of Weston here-s
by invites him to dwell in that garden spot of
Fairfield-and-No-Favor County. For neighbors,
he will have members of his staff - Leo Marsh, of 1
Westport; William Soskin, of Wilton, and Gilbert
Gabriel, of Towners, N. Y.
"IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE"U
ROME, Oct. 23.- WP)- Effective Nov. 5, nos
newspaper in Italy will be allowed to publish moret
than six pages.
Every time we get a poem from Baron Ireland wet
feel that we ought to make another solicitation
about the sale of Conning Tower manuscripts.f
Money received goes to the Tribune Fresh Airt
Fund or some other organization or person desig-
nated by the buyer.
One of our bad habits--though we insist that
it is not all bad --is that of taking things for
granted. Once we print a notice that Conning
Tower manuscripts are purchaseable, and we think
that once is enough for all time. It is like telling
somebody that you love her, and adding "Con-
tinue thinking that I do until I tell you other-1
wise." Or, as the printers say, tf; meaning till1
forbid.I
Connecticut's tercentenary celebration has end-t
ed, but the minnesingers still are articulate. Our
favorite poetical celebrant is Nellie E. Bourke, ofl
Thomaston. Her poem, "Connecticut," printed in
the Waterbury Democrat, is too long to quote in
full, but, here are some of the more memorable
lines:
Mark "The State of the Chater Oak!"l
Where our great Charter did elope.
"Answer to a Perfect Dream."
Of United States cities, "Golden Queen!"
Hartford! most brightly gleaming
With intellects every meaning.
Riches of nature and finance;
The best to see, you have a chance.
Connecticut's other cities sustain
Important places in the Hall of Fame.
Your beauteous, quaint old towns
Abound with what always renowns,
Majestic mountains, valleys and hills;
Fine settings to thy great, large mills.
This state's great, noble trees,
Dainty, sweet flowers and pretty leaves
With shade and dreamy ease,
The most fastidious please.
The history of this state
Is like silver lining to a cloud;
Clear, noble, powerful to relate
Of what her natives can be proud.
Her motto, "Qui Transtulit Sustinet,"
Tells us a grand old story.
Here, the nation's honor is well kept.
Connecticut's ablaze with glory!
Thy newspapers are works of art.
In all that's good they have a part.

We get from them the latest news,
Styles, pictures, intelligent views,
The best in literature and art
In their annals have a part,
In everything it's plain to see
Connecticut tops the highest tree.
That the drama reviewers of New York have
decided to award a prize for the best, in their
opinion, play of the year is an interesting piece of
news. But that the prize will be a medal robs the
award of much of its joy of receipt. Our feeling is
that the prize should be about $1,500 in immediate
cash, and a medal. But a medal only? No.
And now the book critics should form a circle
and award their own prize to their own choice
of fiction, verse, and history. Of course, it would
be a lot of fun for the winners of these prizes if
the Pulitzer committee's choice coincided with
the critics'.
It has been suggested that the columnists de-
cide on who of their number should receive a prize
for the year's best column, or the highest average
of excellence, but one of the cynical spoiled darlings
of the Press says that it wouldn't work: that
each of us would get one vote.
Thomas Benton, of Hollidaysburg, Pa., was sure

Washington
Off The Record
By SIGRID ARNE
The man who pushes his spectacles
p on his forehead and then hunts
or them all over the house has an
qual in the woman who peered out
f the windows at the top of the t
Mashington monument.d
"Oh, there's the Lincoln memorial,"c
he said as she gazed out one win-a
ow.
"And there's the capitol," she saidh
is she peered through another. f
Then she turned to the guard andt
sked, "But where's the WashingtonI
monument?"g
Ever so often a new ghost story i
pops up about the eerie, meandering,
underground passages in the capitol.
The newest one is told by a lieu-f
enat of the guard who was makings
his nightly rounds with a flash-light.-
In Statuary hall he saw a shadowc
flit from one stone figure to an-
other. He waved thle light and shout-y
ed. Only an echo answered. He blew
his whistle. The shadow still slid
about.
Then he gave chase - and caught a
surprised janitor who is deaf.
Secretary Wallace probably heardI
this one about meat prices.I
A Washington butcher was break-
ing the news softly to a housewife
that the price of pork chops had gone
up. She answered with an angry dis-
sertion ending:
"Oh, that man Wallace. He ought
to be fired."
The butcher clapped his hands to,
his head as a woman standing near
by looked startled and left the store.;
"Lady, lady," he moaned to the
first woman, "you shouldn't have said
that. That was Mrs. Wallace."
J. Edgar Hoover, chief of the
G-Men, received the following
unusual plea:
"Wife left me. No job long
time. Positively must have her
back. Tried everything else.
What can you do?"
Caddies get a little tangled when
Representative Hamilton Fish, Jr., of
New York, arrives at the first tee.
He plays left-handed and swings on
the side which is usually safe terri-
tory for the onlooker.
Virginians were treated to a little
historical "ribbing by two experts
when Stratford, the birthplace of
Robert E. Lee, was dedicated.
Two members of the famous Glass
fami c met on the speakers' stand;
Mrs. Blair Bannister, assistant treas-
urer of the United States, and Miss
Meta Glass, president of Sweet Briar
college, both sisters of Senator Carter
Glass. d
"So sorry you didn't drive down
with us," said Miss Glass with a
twinkle in her eye. "We stopped at
Wakefield, the birthplace of Wash-
ington -you know, George Washing-
ton."
Mrs. Bannister suppressed a smile
and answered:
"Well, we stopped for lunch with
Mrs. Casanova Lee - you know, the
Lees of Virginia."
FERA secretaries 'felt a little
faint when they thought of fill-
ing the request of one man who
wrote:
"Please send me names and ad-
dresses of the people on relic f
rolls."

And The Fall Games ...
HE FIRST FALL GAMES in more
than half a decade were brought to
a successful conclusion yesterday. Much credit
is due the Men's Council for its part in reviving
such aworthy tradition. One unfortunate inci-
dent, however, marred the entire program.
Thursday night the jubilant underclassmen
completely overstepped the bounds of propriety in
an invasion of the General Library. Carried away
with a rough-and-tumble spirit of enthusiasm, a
horde of freshmen and sophomores, hooting and
yelling and in general making intolerable nuisances
of themselves, tore into the building and dashed
through the main study hall in a search for vic-
tims. The resulting confusion made study im-
possible.
The General Library is definitely a sanctuary of
quiet and study. Its efficient management so
preserves that atmosphere. It is a reflection on
the fall games tradition that such an incident
hampered the efficient management of the library.
Undoubtedly the guilty parties should be taken
to task - just as they were last year when over-
enthusiastic underclassmen invaded a sorority
house - for their inexcusable violation of the rules
of proper conduct.
Five And Ten ,
Education.*.
A POPLEXY must have seized many
careful observers of trends in edu-
cation when they read "An Experimental Curricu-
lum in English" issued Friday morning by the
National Council of Teachers of English.
For years many scholars have been deploring
and viewing with alarm the increasing tendency
to let method blind educators to content. Educa-
tion schools, backed by legislation, have forced
prospective teachers to take a certain amount -

[As Others See it
Sports Scribes' Slang
(From the Minnesota Daily)
ONE OF THE GREATEST contributions of all
time to American literature is now being
spurred on, like a wind storm out of the North,
by Joseph Louis Barrow, the former Alabama
shanty-owner who has driven like a thunderbolt
to the top of the American pugilistic ranks in less
than 18 months.
Driven by the meteoric rise of the Michigan
Mauler, sports scribes far and near are cramming
figurative language into their glowing accounts.
Louis has now become Messrs. Dead-pan Joe,
Dark Angel, Brown Embalmer, Ring Robot, Ala-
bam' Assassin, Sepia Slasher, Tan Thunderbolt,
Detroit Dynamiter, and Wildcat Warrior.
Critics everywhere agree that the exploits of the
Coffee-colored Crusher have pushed former record
language figures out of the American literary pic-
ture. Such one-time high water marks as Sultan
of Swat, Ruppert Rifles, Golden Gophers, Golden
Gridiron Horde and the more recent Charley's
Grimm Reaper have been relegated to the back-
ground in favor of the irrepressible onslaught
caused by the Tan Tanner's dramatic career.
Even headlines, such as Tempestuous Tigers
Curb Chicago Cubs, are responding to the modern
trend towards power in the sports page. Who
can say that the influence will not spread further?
Veteran scribes agree that the time is just around
the corner when war correspondents in Swarthy
Selassie's kingdom, chronicling the achievements
of Ethiopian snipers, will headline: Selassie's Sly
Snoopers Scrap Enemy Gains. Or maybe Hirsute
Haile's Hordes will advance and cause Dour Duce
to Deny Recent Retreat Rumors. Dour Duce will
retort that the glowering Lion of Judah is being
caged as Roaring Romans Razz Rases in New
Ethiopian titls.
