It is said that experience is a hard teacher, but
she is apparently not hard enough. None of the
world powers have learned that a nationalistic
policy does not mean peace and security but war,
international anarchy and economic depression.

Enlarge The
Coliseum.. ..
HEN 1400 persons constitute an
overflow audience at a varsity
game, when any number of fans are turned away
from the gates because even the standing room
is filled to capacity, and when admission prices
are necessarily so high that many students are
financially unable to attend contests, it is time
to consider rebuilding the Coliseum to make room
for large hockey crowds.
This remodeling becomes especially desirable
when it is considered that all the work necessary
would be the moving of one wall. By moving
back the wall on the press box side of the ice,
stands could be built that would almost double
the present seating capacity.
The expense of this enlargement should be ade-
quately taken care of by the increased crowds
at home games. Furthermore, prices could be
lowered from the 35 cent rate for students and the
75 cent rate for townspeople, so that more persons
would find it within their means to attend hockey
games.
Present rates, particularly for non-students, are
as high as professional rates for International
League games in Detroit. As a result local fans
spend their hockey evenings watching the Olym-
pics play in Detroit.
With Michigan destined to have a good hockey
team for the next several years, a move to re-
build the Coliseum and increase the seating capa-
city would be a wise step, both from a University
and a financial standpoint.
Home games this year are almost sure to attract
many more spectators than there is room for
include the Michigan Tech series, the Minnesota
series, and single games with Point Edward and
Brantford.
Hockey fans are the most loyal and ardent of
sports enthusiasts and certainly deserve the right
to see the team play if they are willing to brave
the icy atmosphere of the Coliseum for an hour-
and-a-half.
The Late
Naval Parley.
T WON'T be long now until the na-
tions of the world are engaged in a
thirsty race for big navies - a race which will
mean millions of dollars in profits for the ship-1
builders and munitions manufacturers. Japan
has withdrawn from the five-power naval confer-
ence, and, as it was expected, has thrown the
monkey wrench into the machinery to reduce naval1
armaments.
Let us look at the reason Japan withdrew. Ad-1
miral Osami Nagano of the Japanese navy says
that the proposals of the conference were detri-
mental to the "national prestige" of Japan.
There is but one fallacy in this reason. Thatt
is, that the admiral and the Japanese delegates1
believe they know the sentiment of all the Japaneset
people on the proposal - just as the Kaiser saidI
he knew the sentiment of the German peoplet
at the beginning of the World War.1
However, the withdrawal of Japan is but one rea-
son the conference is doomed to failure. Just as
responsible are the other powers who refused to;
agree to the "common upper limit" plan suggestedi
by the Japanese. Their reason for not agreeing1
was that the plan involved the scrapping of ships,t

Advice To Young Columnists
(From Editor and Publisher)
By WILLIAM ALLEN WHITE
O YOU FEEL that you are going to cut loose,
young man. Well, I knew your father when he
and I at your age looked at a world full of injus-
tices. In that day the world was rather more
stuffy with injustice than it is today. Your father
and I stuck it out. Possibly we were wrong. But
two or three young fellows whom we knew and
loved struck off across country to the rainbow that
you are seeking. The world is better than it was
fifty years ago. But I doubt if they helped it
any. The resistless pressure of social forces in evo-
lutionary progress through the inventions of men
and the sluggish but powerfully moving sense of
justice in men's hearts have made the world better
in these fifty years.
I would like to think that those dear, star-
eyed boys and girls who started with us in the
eighties accelerated the speed of human progress,
but I am fairly sure they did not.
You have a gift for writing. You see things
clearly and you are not mistaken about these cruel
and devastating injustices which fill your eyes with
wrath. More people see them than you think. And
so with glacier-like movement the injustices are
ground down. The generations pass, justice is a
little more nearly achieved in the passing cen-
tury. But change that comes hastily too often
is not change, but turmoil. I fear that you will
see that the cataclysm in Russia will have to back
up two or three car lengths in the next ten or
fifteen years and then will not be much further
ahead than the order that is slowly changing
so surely under our eyes in the democratic nations
of the world.
You ask my advice about what to do in the.
changing social order in the world you are about
to enter.
Alas, a man in his late sixties should not try
to point the way to a youth in his twenties. My
generation has made so many mistakes, and I have
been myself so much a part or an indorser of
many of those mistakes that it is grotesque to
try to tell you what to do. One fact,' however, you
may fairly well rely on. If you live until your
late sixties, you will survive into an order as
changed and strange as this order now seems
to me, when I look back on the days when I was
your age.
The changes that have come to the world in my1
life have been mostly by mechanical devices. If
think the changes in your life will come largely
through human attitudes to those and other me-t
chanical devices that are yet unrealized.1
What should you do about it: Rush out to meet1
the changes? Face them with eager impatience?
Or sit by and let them come? I don't know. Of
this I am fairly certain. That what you do will
make no great difference. Whatever changes in
the social order you may see will be more or lessr
inevitable, a part of resistless social forces. Cer-
tainly I should not pull back when the machinev
is grinding forward. But I should not get out1
and push too heavily. It won't help much. Andv
alas, pushing so hard - you may slip and fall down.-
And then anyway you don't know which wayc
the old bus is going as you push, and you may
steer it into a ditch. Mark Twain's boy on the
Mississippi steamboat who burst into the salons
shere a lot of old ladies were knitting, and startledn
them with a cry of "fire," probably was properlyf
ebuked when one of the old ladies looked over hert
lasses and said: "Now sonny, run and get your
pants on and come and tell us all about it." II
hink that is the world's attitude toward those whof
rowd the mourners for the old order, and there is'
something in it.
I suppose what I am trying to say is to save
your enthusiasm, your energy, the dynamic illu-1
ions of youth for your work, and let it lead yout
vhere it will. Don't restrain it, and don't prosti-a
ute it. Whatever talent you have is your gift,
'our dearest treasure. Follow it, but cherish it.,
[t will do the world no good to have your brainsp
>ashed out by a cop's club or a gun-butt. More-_
>ver as premature remains you will miss a lot of
un, but maybe you will see a lot more of life as ac
rusader.h
I probably haven't helped you, and I am sorry.v
But I shall always be glad to know of your 1

Hadicalism. In Colleges1
(From the Auburn Plainsman)d

AGREAT DEAL of attention has been focused,r
of late, on the spread of radicalism and com-
munism in our colleges and universities.t
Thus far Auburn has been fortunate in not hav-s

Our argument is not with radicalism and com-s

earning in this country. The writer has in mind I
the results of an investigation, made by one of the
eading periodicals, following an outburst of agi- I
ation at one of the mid-western universities. Thisc
eport, the authenticity and fairness of which
an hardly be questioned, showed that paid organ-c

The 'P)'s story from Cambridge, Mass., says
that Dr. J. Harper Blaisdell said that American
women spend $200,000,000 to "look pretty." We
object to the quotes. They spend it to look pretty;
and they look pretty. It isn't the money that
interests us; it's the time they spend in beautifi-
cation. Beautification is of man's life a thing
apart; 'tis woman's whole existence.

'ODI PROFANUM VULGUS'

A Washington
BYSTAN D ER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16. - Pending
clarification of administration
and all other views as to what to do
now about farm legislation, the only
remarks made by President Roosevelt
directly about Supreme Court over-
throw of AAA attract attention. Real-
ly it is one remark, twice made. It
was said once in a White House press
conference; repeated later to the
Jackson Day dinner-and-party-defi-
cit eaters, as follows:
"I cannot render off-hand judg-
ment without studying with utmost
care two of the most momentous
opinions ever rendered in a case be-
fore the Supreme Court."
TWO opinions! What does that in-
dicate? There are often two
opinions by the court, sometimes
more than two. Only one has force,
the majority opinion.
It is also true, of course, that in the
time of Justice Oliver Wendell
Holmes and even before his long day,
minority views sometimes proved
more thought and comment provok-
ing than majority rulings. They did
not and could not directly influence
the immediate course of legislation.
That is controlled by the majority
ruling alone. That is the law, what-
ever the minority members say about
it.
When, then, in planning his next
step need Mr. Roosevelt study both
opinions in the AAA case? A possi-
ble explanation is that he has two
steps, not one, open which to decide.
The first is immediate, to meet the
farm legislation emergency due to
the fall of AAA. Short of some all
b u t unimaginable congressional
flouting of the Supreme Court's dic-
tum, whatever is done must be shaped
to accord with the majority ruling.
The views of the court minority are
beside the question as to that.
* * * *«
THE second step would be how to
seek a reversal or material mod-
ification of that majority ruling. To
the casual eyedthat implies a consti-
tutional amendment, at best and de-
signedly so, a slow and unpredictable
business.
Yet there is a circumstance cham-
pions of the majority view of the
court on AAA's unconstitutionality
must often think of with shudders.
That is the age of the justices who
rendered it. From that and from any
study of the frequency with which
changesnhave come on the supreme
bench in the past, it can be argued
that in all probability important re-
casting of the court will occur before
the next presidential term ends early
in 1941, within five years.
Assuming that, President Roose-
velt and his successor in the first in-
stance, and the senate, mathematic-
ally Democratic for that period, in
the second instance, could amend the
court rather than the Constitution.
Think that over as an added unstated
election issue.

It is obviously ridiculous to believe that the
Morgan interests were responsible for America's
entrance into the war. In the first place, Mr. Mor-
gan and his partners say that they were not; in
the second, hardly any of the American soldiers
knew the Morgans, and hundreds of thousands
had never even heard of them.
NO ARTIST IS QUITE GREAT
There is little cause for wonder at Delleville's
Symphony Orchestra when you consider the large
number of musical people in our community. Fore-
most, of course, is Professor Leniger, its director,
who knows Kreisler personally, and who declares
he was greeted with great enthusiasm when he
went to see The Maestro, as he always calls him,
at Blossvale, only seventy-five miles away, on the
occasion of his last concert there.
Prof. Leniger's School of Music is an asset to
our community in more ways than one. The
student body, seated on long folding chairs on one
of Mr. Larry's bunting-draped coal trucks, takes
part in all the parades, besides advertising us
through weekly broadcasts on the radio station at
Sudbury. Although he is primarily an artist, Prof.
Leniger says, he is also a firm believer in boosting
for better business.
Then there is the Community Choir, directed
by Mrs. Hayes, who often says she is certain that
if she had gone to New York when she was eigh-
teen, instead of getting married, she might have
amounted to something. A somewhat overwhelm-
ing bass in conversation, Mrs. Hayes holds forth
on all the noted singers, even those in the Metro-
politan, and often hints that none of them is quite
great.
"Jeritza has no Depth," she booms, her eyes
closed, and one feels somehow that Mrs. Hayes
has great depth indeed. "No artist can be great
without Depth," she declares, firmly. Mrs. Hawkes,
the church organist agrees, and ventures to sug-
gest that Ponselle has depth?
"No. No depth, no depth at all," thunders Mrs.
Hayes, sorrowingly, and the two friends develop
an animated discussion in a futile endeavor to
discover a single artist from the rolls of the Met-
ropolitan and the concert great who have depth.
The discussion ends when Mrs. Hayes once more
voices vain regret for the destiny she missed when
she was married at eighteen. Mr. Hayes often
leaves quietly for the kitchen at this point but
his departure seldom is noticed for Mrs. Hawkes
is hinting darkly that she, too, might have had
a different career entirely had she been willing
to Pay the Price.
"All those 'great' artists have paid the price every
step of the way," she declares, her eyes glittering.
Pretty soon they are deep in a glowing description
of the private lives of the singers. It seems the
managers, directors, booking agents and others in
any way connected with music are unusually
echerous and to scale the heights one must be
completely abandoned.
Another strong supporter of our Symphony Or-
chestra, is Mr. Hill, the superintendent of our larg-
est silk mill. Although he laughingly describes
himself as "just a plain business man," Mr. Hill
takes violin lessons from Professor Leniger every
week and on Saturday afternoons makes cozy little
talks to the girls in the mill on "Musical Apprecia-

Band To Entertain
At Basketbal Game
The Varsity R.O.T.C. Band is
scheduled to play for the basketball
game Saturday night and to provide
various novelty stunts and features.
Prof. W. D. Revelli, director of
Bands of the University, expects be-

AT THE MICHIGAN
MAJOR BOWE'S AMATEURS AND
'SEVEN KEYS TO BALDPATE'
The group of amateurs brought to
the Michigan stage have plenty of
individual talent but the show isn't
presented well enough to bring it
out, being so jerky that one becomes
conscious of the lack of organization.
There isn't a one of them that
wouldn't be a definite success in a
well staged production. Jean O'Neill,
the high school girl singer, was the
favorite of the audience due to her
pleasing voice and stage presence.
Second honors were about evenly
divided between imitator Clarence
Hending and Charles Louisa, singer.
Gloria Berger also was well received
with her surprisingly powerful voice.
Other numbers include Yvonne of the,
many instruments, musical Jack,
Michael from Texas, and the Con-
necticut four.
"Seven Keys to Baldpate," the ac-
companying picture, is just another
mystery this time with more villians
than there are in the whole theatre,
all of whom are trying to double
cross the others. Gene Raymond
plays the male lead fairly well but
tries to be too smart and too myster-
ious at once. Margaret Callahan has
the main feminine role which sheI
handles well. Eric Blore is disap-
pointing, probably because he isn't
cut out for the type of part he plays
- he's a comedian and should re-
main one.
The story takes place in Baldpate
Inn, where Raymond has come to
write a novel in peace, possessing the
only key. It develops that six others
have keys as well (no one bothers
to tell where they got them) and the
six arrive one after the other bent
