NEAR BATTLE CREEK at dusk, a
truck-load of Boy Scouts on an
excursion finds itself suddenly in the ditch. with
one member fatally injured. Cause: a poorly-
marked curve. The accident, authorities went on,
was "unavoidable . .."
On the Pontiac Road north of Ann Arbor a little
more than a year ago, there stood a wooden cross
in a blinding snow storm. On it was lettered "Rail-
way Crossing," but it might as well have started
"Here Lies . . ." for during that snow storm a car
whose driver could not possibly have seen the
plain wooden cross crashed into a freight train,
and its two occupants were killed. Now a blinker
adorns that particular railway crossing, although
the wooden cross would have been more appro-
priate. Still more appropriate would have been the
installation of a blinker two years ago, before the
fatal crash --.
There is just cause for wonder and indignation
that the State of Michigan, which has one of the
best highway systems in the Unted States, and
is at the present moment intensely interested in
safety education, should lag so far behing in the
matter of highway markings. While nearby Wis-
consin offers valuable leadership in this matter, in
Michigan the markings change, if there are any,
when the county line is crossed. In one county,
a right angle marking indicates a two-point de-
viation in the road to right or left; in its neighbor,
the mere word "curve" may mean a right angle
turn. Where the state has undertaken the mark-
ings, there is still another set, each set with its own
degree of indication.
This isn't an important matter financially; it
isn't necessarily a PWA project, although it could
probably be financed on the money for one of
Mr. Hopkins WPA golf courses. But it is a matter
of life and death, of lives that can be saved and
need not be lost. Michigan must have better, safer,
and more extensive highway marking.
As Others See It

The Conning Tower
THE LANYARD CHAIN
Down by the wharf one gallant day
A sailor passed on his lusty way.
ils eyes shown opalescent green
Like the changing waters he had seen.
I said, "Come rest upon the shore
And teach me Love's unending lore."
He did not do as he was told
But another magic he unrolled.
And from an orange silk-thread skein
He wove a ;illiant lanyard chain.
His supple fingers moved in time
To lilting voice and singing rhyme.
"Oh the sea is the bride I can't resist
Brave is her veil of spray and mist.
"And scarlet sea-weeds comb her hair
Keeping her beauty strange and rare.
"She calls to me through sleet and foam
A long exultant cry, 'Come home!'
"We're lovers and the ageless tide
Sweeps me close to her shining side.
"And when we meet in storm, her stress
Is more than woman's deep caress."
S * *
Thus did the sailor turn from me
To claim his bride, the silver sea.
But he left his close-knit lanyard chain.
For me to wear and wear again.
PLOWDEN KERNAN.
Whenever it seems to the President or the Sen-
ate or somebody else in Washington that the gov-
ernment needs a little more money, that its fixed
and irreducible charges are greater than its present
income, taxes on individual and corporate incomes
are increased. "I need more money," the employe
says. "Thanks for telling me," says the employer."
Your increase in wages begins at once." This is
proof that nations are like individuals, as we are
always told when war is just around the corner.

PARTY LINES IN HANCOCK COUNTY
Democrats, you had deduced at an early age,
had cloven hooves, horned heads, and beyond all
doubt, grew tails with that peculiar Satanic spike
at the tip. Democrats were the abdmination of all
mankind. Hancock, yes, and Lucas County ladies,
many of them, were self appointed Jeanne d'Arcs
fighting a Holy War against the Invader. Their
eyes gleamed with righteous fervor, their faces pale
and set, bore silent witness to their earnest deter-
mination to rid this fair land of Democrats who,
like termites, were nibbling at the very foundations
of the pillars of society. Termites, which if not
checked, would cause these same pillars to come
tumbling down on Republican as well as Demo-
cratic heads, thus killing the virtuous as well as
the iniquitous. And then, where would we be?
Up and at 'em, gals, was the battle cry ringing
in the ears of many a middle aged maiden and
matron. Little did they wot that frustration and
nature's bitter fight for one last furious display
were prompting this violent self-expression.
Mrs. Crayson, whose husband was "in politics,"
felt the glittering importance of her position. We
always listened meekly when she spoke. We learned
what noble souls politicians really had, how they
sacrificed themselves for the good of their country,
of their fellow men, of helpless women and inno-
cent little children - that is, Republican politi-
cians. How men reviled them and spoke all man-

NIGHT EDITOR: DONALD SMITH
the ise
"HILIP ADLER'S story in The De-
roit News this Sunday on the col-
lapse of the Sunrise collective farm project.should
not be accepted as a condemnation of the future
of collective farming in the United States.
The Sunrise Cooperative Farm Community has
been operating for the past three years near Ches-
aning, Michigan. Today it is collapsing, financial-
ly; nevertheless, we feel that the results of the ex-
periment are heartening.1
The Community was built up of some 200 fam-
ilies, unemployed, coming from America's large
industrial centers. They were destitute, in many
cases; many borrowed the necessary original con-
tribution asked of each family. Out of the ram-
shackle buildings into which they moved was built
a group of modern farm and housing buildings;.
out of the heterogenous mass which began the
project was welded a close-knit enthusiastic com-
munity, The heavy original indebtedness has.
doomed the experiment, but despite it, the experi-
ment was a success.
Many have regarded the colony as an agar cul-
ture of communism. The Free Press, some months
ago, when it found that a government agency had
lent the colony funds, took the occasion to de-
nounce the New Deal for aiding a "red" commu-
nity. The colony in fact (and this may shock the
Free Press still more) is more anarchistic than[
communistic in its ideals. Their philosophy has
been that of Kropotkin and, in another sense,
Thoreau. Their organization has been entirely
voluntary; no one was compelled to work, yet
evryrne did work,,. They avoided the reginenta-
tion of Russia's collective farm projects. "We
wanted to apply," they said, "the humanism of
Emerson, Thoreau and Hawthorne to the Russian
scheme of socialization." There is no doubt but
that the project was an indigenous American ex-
priment. In fact, most of the leftists within
and without the colony denounced it for its failure
to go Russian.
It is int eresting to observe that the collective
farm experiments of Henry Ford in this part of the
country have been eminently successful.
We strongly recommend that the idea of collec-
tive farming be not condemned because of false
ideas as to its "un-Americanism," or because the
Sunrise is bowing to too great an original indebt-
edness. We believe that such a project can offer
greater stability to agrarian workers than they can
attain individually; we believe as a social experi-
ment it offers unlimited opportunity for individual
freedom together with financial security.
Election
U NDOUBTEDLY the most consistent-
ly disappointing feature of campus
elections is the invariably light vote cast. Yester-
day's balloting for important student positions
on the Men's Council athletic board, and publica-
tions board was no exception.
Although it was not the only factor, one of the
causes of the discouragingly small turn-out yester-
day was the method of identification of students
who wished to vote. Tuition receipts were de-,
manded from all. That this was to be done was
not made known to the student body until the
day before the election, and consequently many

NYA At Wiscorsirt
(From The Wisconsin Daily Cardinal)
ELEVEN hundred students on the university cam-
pus are now dependent upon federal aid
through the National Youth Administration for
necessities of their college life. No below-average
students are these, for the NYA authorities re-
quire at least a one-point average, but students
employed because they need financial help to ob-'
tain an education.
Projects were organized by different university'
departments in an attempt to find jobs which
the NYA students would take along the line of
their major courses. In other words, many of
the NYA jobs are research, arranging courses, and
aiding- the instructors and course directors. Stu-
dents in these jobs are strengthening their profes-
sional background. The fact that some of the NYA
jobs are trivial and of little value either to the
students and the university does not detract from
the great value of the bulk of the NYA work.
Despite the fact that NYA has been generally
accepted as valuable to both the students andf
the university, national authorities of the National
Youth administration have professed ignorance of
its further continuance. Local officials do not know
whether it is to be continued next year or not. It
is election year, and any future plans of the ad-
ministration are shadowed and kept secret.
For this reason, a group of NYA students have
asked the Wisconsin Student alliance to arrange
a program of short talks by NYA students, in
which these students will describe their work and
present their reasons in declaring that it should be
continued.
It will be an interesting program -- one that the
student body should attend, since one out of every
eight -students-is employed in NYA work and, since
so much money is going into this work, the future
taxpayers should know how much value they are
getting out of it.
Four Years For What?

Contemporary
A Review
By WARNER G. RICE
(Of the English Department)
HE EDITORS of Contemporary
have made the last issue of the
year their best. Especially they ap-
pear to have taken note of the ap-
peal of some readers for articles of
local and timely interest. Dr. Harold
Whitehall has provided for them a
shrewd analy.sis of the claims of the
talkies as art and as entertainment,
justly distinguishing between the two
functions. Mr. Charles T. Harrell
discusses The Propaganda Play, de-
fining its true character and aim, and
incidentally providing some discern-
ing bits of criticism by such com-
parisons as the one which he draws
between Galsworthy's Strife and Jus-
tice. For many his exposition will
offer a helpful means of appraising
much which is appearing on the con-
terpporary stage. Mr. Martin Green-
berg, quite properly dissatisfied with
the methods and results of the Spring
Parley, draws attention to its weak-
nesses and makes some suggestions
for its improvement - though with-
out emphasizing quite enough the ob-
ligation of students to educate them-
selves and to develop intellectual self-
reliance: to think out problems for
themselves as far as they are able,
and then to draw in faculty mem-
bers, if they wish, to criticise their
results - not to turn in the first in-
stance to professorial guidance, of
which enough is already available,
surely, in the classroom. Mr. James
Green's Peace Strike, though not
quite clearly thought through, makes
a point worth debating, and completes
the list of essays.
As a group, the reviews stand next
in interest. Each one of them is more
than a mere summary, each is
thoughtful and suggestive. This re-
viewer found Dr. Hoekstra's handling
of Mr. Santayana, and Professor Wen-
ger's comments on the Webbs' Soviet
Communism apt and stimulating, but
he thinks it a pity that when such
good critical writing as Mr. Warshow's
is available in the student body fac-
ulty members should be called in to
contribute to a students' magazine.
The authors of the verse scattered
through Contemporary's pages suc-
ceed in teasing the reader into
thought, but follow the current fa-
shion in being somewhat unnecessar-
ily arcane. The stories in this num-
ber are distinctly better than average.
Miss Carney occasionally forces the
note in her Cellophane Lover, but has
an amusing idea to work out, Mr. Mc-
Kelvey creates the atmosphere and
feeling for which he is working in
At Court. and Mr. Jones sustains
throughout his account of a lynching
in A Summer Day an attitude of cal-
lous detachment which points the
horror of the episode.
The general level of achievement
here is high: Contemporary has
gained momentum; the auspices for
another year seem excellent.
Ten Years Ago
From The Daily Files
Of May 20, 1926
DECLARING that time alone would
tell whether prohibition was a
wise hlmitation, Dr. Clarence Cook
Little, president of the University of1
Michigan, told the Wayne County so-
cial worker's conference yesterday
that it was not yet possible to argue
on known facts and prove that the
Volstead act is or is not beneficial.
Quick, concrete results in European
land disarmament were deemed to be
further removed today, when addi-
tional states, including Roumania,
Pcland, and Finland followed the'
leadership of France and declared that

disarmament can only come after the
achievement of greater security than
exists now.
The Wolverine golf team defeated
the Northwestern team by a score of
151: to 8" in matches played yester-
day at. the Evanston golf course.
With the new proposed stadium in
view, the Board in Control of Athletics

an option on the Sperry farm, which
is a 155-acre tract of land lying at
the intersection of the new M-17
highway and extending along Main
Street for a distance of half a mile.
Albert Spalding, violinist, the chil-
dren's chorus, Giovanni Martinelli,
tenor, and the Chicago Symphony

Lincoln Ellsworth, second in com-
mand of the expedition on which the
dirigible Norge visited the North Pole,
said yesterday, "I realize now that
I said something when I remarked
that we have seen rocks."
The President of the United States,
Calvin Coolidge, was reported to have
been in an "unusually jovial mood"
at breakfast yesterday morning and
to have spoken for a full minute.

Smoking in University Buildings:
Attention is called to the general rule
that smoking is prohibited in Univer-
sity buildings except in private offices
and assigned smoking rooms where
precautions can be taken and control
exercised. This is neither a mere
arbitrary regulation nor an attempt
to meddle with anyone's personal
habits. It is established and enforced
solely with the purpose of preventing
fires. During the past two years there
have been twenty fires in University
buildings, seven of which were at-
tributed to cigarettes. To be effec-
tive, the rule must necessarily apply
to bringing lighted tobacco into or
through University Buildings -in-
cluding such lighting just previous to
going outdoors. Within the last few
years a serious fire was started at the
exit from the Pharmacology Building
by the throwing of a still lighted
match into refuse waiting removal at
the doorway. If the rule is to be en-
forced at all its enforcement must be-
gin at the building entrance. Further,
it is impossible that the rule should
be enforced with one class of persons
if another class of persons disregards
t. It is a disagreeable and thankless
-ask to 'enforce' any rule. Thib rule
Igainst the use of tobacco within the
muildings is perhaps the most thank-
'ess and difficult of all, unless it has
he willing support of everyone con-
cerned. An appeal is made to all
persons using the University build-
ings - staff members, students and
others - to contribute individual co-
operation to this effort to protect
University buildings against fires.
Choral Union Members: The music
deposit of $2.50 will be refunded to all

([rem The Daily Northwestern) I ner of evil against their heart-breaking endeavors
r HE COMPLICATED machinery of education has to better the lot of their suffering brethren. You
been whirling at a great rate. The wheels have gathered that the evil tongues belonged to Demo-
been turning, the cogs have been meshing. The crats. We learned of the purity, the high mind-
last operation is tinder way. Soon the completed edness, the Parsifal like qualities of politicians -
product will begin to drop out the graduation chute Republican ones. We could almost hear an organ
all wrapped in cellophane and labeled "educated." playing while this priestess chanted.

The product will be called a bachelor of arts
or a doctor of philosophy or some other high
sotnding title, but it will be just another job hunter
il a week. It won't know where it is or where it is
going. All it will know is where it has been.
This is in short an indictment of the educational
system. There is no concrete objective. There is
no clear cut goal. All we have is a somewhat hazy
idea of what an educated man should be - a neb-
ulous idea of what should be a foundation for life.
Before an intelligent man pulls the trigger on a
gun, he must know at what he is aiming. He
would never think of just pointing the weapon at
random and then shooting. But when 'it' comes
to education, our intelligent man is content to aim
his gun either at random or at a whispy form in the
distance.
Four years is a long time to spend going through
a machine to make something you're not sure, you
want. Four years is a long time to travel without
a destination.
Education needs an objective. We can't go on
with a confused system much longer, It is about
time that the college student stopped the ma-
chinery, stood off in the distance and said: "What
the hell?"
A cold wave struck the fruit reoian of 'F1i",a4 n

We departed from Mrs. Crayson's presence with
our faith in Jehovah, himself, shaken. How, then,
could the Lord permit Democrats to live and pro-
create? Why did he not destroy them with his
Terrible Swift Sword? Why did he not stick them
through and through? Impale them! What a di-
verting, what a truly astonishing sight it would be
to see Democrats stuck on every tree on Sandusky
Street. But it would undoubtedly clutter up the
place. Maybe the Lord was biding his time to smite
them down and, worm that you were, who were
you to question his speed in this execution? May-
be you had just better slip into that slothful frame
of mind whereby you would leave it up to the
Lord, and braving the bony pointing finger of Mrs.
Crayson, sidestep any earnest crusade. With none
but Republicans left in the world, it would un-
doubtedly be a better but-God forbid - a duller
place. B. ROSS.
It seems to us that our party leanings were
influenced by the possession of badges. For ex..
ample, we were hot for Cleveland and Thurman,
and aflame for McKinley and Hobart.
We object to the way the Princeton seniors vote.
They say that Kipling's "If" is their favorite poem,
and they vote that Edgar Guest is the worst poet.
