THE APPEAL voiced by Dr. Warren
G. Forsythe, director of the Health
Service, for some sort of regulated winter sports
program, is a challenge that should not be ignored
by the University officials. When seven students
are injured seriously enough within a month to
need hospital care, some effort should be made to
eliminate the cause of their injuries.
Dr. Forsythe believes that at present Nichols Ar-
boretum, where students go for skiing and tobog-
ganing, is a constant source of danger to the stu-
dents. The seven injuries which occurred there
needing hospitalization, one being near death for
many days, and the numerous bruises, cuts and
sprains treated at the Health Service and at home,
certainly bear out his statement. Injuries received
from outdoor activities have constituted the major
health problem facing University physicians this
winter.
The plan suggested by Dr. Forsythe, and the one
which seems to be the most logical, is to erect some
sort of place in a part of the Arboretum little
used for tree planting purposes, or on the Univer-
sity Golf Course, where students can ski and tobog-
gan in comparative safety. The Arboretum is an
almost ideal spot, and with the expenditure of a
few dollars can be converted into a skiing place
which will save many dollars in hospital costs in
the end. The golf course, especially at the ninth
tee, would offer an excellent place for sports en-
thusiasts to engage in skiing and tobogganing withj
little danger'to the inexperienced.
Agitation begun several years ago to make over
a part of the Arboretum as a skiing and toboggan-
ing ground was balked by some faculty members
who insisted that the Arboretum be left solely
for tree-planting purposes. The large number of
accidents which accompanied the heavy snowfall
this winter have shown how unfortunate it was
that some such arrangement was not provided. The
University should now take adequate steps to pre-
vent a recurrence of the needless injuries suffered
by so many students this year.
Cryingy
'Wolf'.
S UGGESTED by the apprehension
of a man in California suspected of
the killing of Patrolman Clifford A. Stang almost
one year ago is a reflection on one of the most un-
fortunate and least excusable aspects of the in-
cident.
Members of the police force have been constantly
submitted to playful jibes, friendly pokes in the
back, pretended hold-ups and other greetings by
their friends as they walk theirdowntown beats.
A policeman soon gets accustomed to this playful-
ness, and ceases to be alarmed with each false cry.
Thus it was when Patrolman Stang stopped in
a clothing store to buy a tie clasp and was warned
by the owners "Look out, it's a stick-up!" he replied
"What are you trying to do, kid me?" and thus was
not prepared to defend himself although he had
ample time. One such incident ought to suffice to
teach us the folly of the habit, so that it may be
stopped before it costs another life.

THE DIARY OF OUR OWN SAMUEL PEPYS
Saturday, February 22
UP BY TIMES and to the office, merrily and
gaily, and did some work, feeling that it was
not unworthy of print, the first day that that
pleasant feeling has come over me in a long time.
So all the day at it and so to dinner and to play
at cards, with good success. P. Waram convulsing
me with his impersonation of a cockney book-
maker. So home, pretty late, and to bed.

MANY LETTERS came to me telling me that it
was a dollar that Washington threw across
the Rappahannock River; and I read that Walter
Johnson also had done it yesterday, but saw noth-
ing that Sol Bloom had paid his best of twenty
to one, and I said to my wife, "Did I not tell you
that nothing would come of it?" And she said
that I always say that about everything; which is
not true, but I do sell many members of the human
race short But as to being right about a predic-
tion, and saying to a woman, "What did I tell
you?" it is a great mistake, as the late Dr. Polon
once told me. And I suppose that it is because
so many women are wrong that they do not like to
be reminded of it; and it is the losers and the
liars and the irresponsible ones whom women love
the most. But Lord! I am too set in my Gibraltar-
like ways to learn to become a devil-may-care
fellow.

WHAT with one thing and another I felt ill last

office working, but like the little girl who always
wanted a pincushion, not very much. And so

Teachers
And Scholars .
ONE OF THE MOST discouraging
aspects of the teaching profession
is the consistent failure of men who put their best
efforts into their teaching to receive equal recog-
nition with those who are teacher-scholars.
Good teaching and scholarly research are not
necessarily mutually exclusive, but they rarely exist
in balance in a single man, either by temperament
or choice, for who can blame a man who, knowing
that his research will bring him advancement and
his teaching nothing, stints the latter for the sake
of the former?
Attention this past week has been called to
this situation by the report of Dr. Walter A. Jessup,
president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Ad-
vancement of Learning, in the annual report of
that organization published last week. "In the
struggle toward academic respectability in which
many institutions have engaged, much emphasis
has been placed upon the external trappings of
scholarship that are all too frequently specious,"
he says in that report.
"The possession of a doctorate or the multipli-
cation of trivial publications has tended to blind
those who are responsible for selecting, promoting
and making comfortable a teaching staff to the fact
that personality is still an indispensable element in
an institution's effectiveness."
Emphasis on degrees, he contends, has resulted
all too often in an "accumulation of colorless, su-
perficial scholars. We might well give more recog-
nition to our own great teachers as artists. For-
tunate is the college which has as its central aim
the desire to recognize, liberate and preserve this
essentially artistic personal element in the teach-
ing staff."
From the student point of view, a man who is
recognized as a national authority in his field is
an inspiring man under whom to study, but his
reputation is worthless to us if he is unable or
too busy to devote himself to his teaching. We
would, on the whole, prefer a man who regarded
himself primarily as a teacher.
From the administrative point of view, it is a
good investment for the future for the university to
employ productive scholars. Their writings will
circulate and bring prestige to the university. One
of the functions of universities is to give scholars
a means of sustenance without too great a demand
upon their time. Moreover, it is comparatively
easy to measure a man's scholarly productivity,
and in most cases impossible to measure his teach-
ing success.
The situation is not easily remedied. Univer-
sities are in a measure justified in their insistence
upon scholarship, although we students are not
inclined to be sympathic with that idea. Further-
more, most attempts at objective standards for
advancement have become mere quantitative
measurements of bibliography, and attempts to
establish objective standards for the measurement,
of teaching success have failed (except in such
courses as English I, where a number of teachers
are, giving the same material and a departmental
examination is possible).
The solution would seem to lie in a recognition
that the elements of personality which mark a good
teacher are only to be observed and rewarded when
a personal, individual approach to the problem of
advancement is taken. In addition, it would ap-
pear more wise to discriminate between those who
are expected to be scholars and those others who

Democracy vs. Dictators hip,
To the Editor:
One never appreciates health quite as much as in
sickness. So, in studying governments, one evalu-
ates the healthy government by comparing it with
the unhealthy or declining government. Just as
human beings aim to keep their physical health, so
do they likewise strive to retain what may be termed
political health and well-being. Of the two polit-
ical systems, democracy and dictatorship, by
which the nations of the world are being gov-
erned today, democracy is the rule of the people,
dictatorship the rule of the despot to whom the
state is everything and the individual nothing,
or more precisely where the individual is being
consumed in the service of the state. Hence the
welfare of the people is found only in democ-
racy within which the political system, in spite of
some shortcomings, human beings, instead of be-
coming the slaves of a tyrant, have a chance to
come into their own. Dictatorship means sup-
pression of all human rights and liberties -it
means decline and death, whereas democracy
means growth and health.
For a full appreciation of the advantages and
blessings of democracy it is necessary to compare
that political syste mwith the evils of dictatorship.
In democracy citizens can say what they think
without first looking around to see whether some-
one is overhearing them. They can write what
they believe. They can form labor unions. They
have a right to jury trial before a regularly con-
stituted court -not the shame of a "People's
Court," as in Nazi Germany. They are not per-
secuted for the sake or religion, race or color.
They have the privilege of voting. They may form
political parties. They may criticize the govern-
ment. They may travel wherever they wish with
the money they happen to possess. They are not
searched for subversive literature. They are not
put into concentration camps and prisons for
political opinions. They do not live in a constant
state of terror, never knowing when, on a trumped-
up charge, they may be arrested. They are not
made to conform and forced into obedience to
a tyrant and despot. These are the advantages
and blessings of democracy -none of which exist
in dictatorship.
What sane person can be willing to sacrifice
democracy with its precious liberties for the op-
pression and slavery of dietorshin9

rHITS MORNING I read that Johnson Hagood,
a very pattern of a modern Major General,
had been relieved of his post; and a great political
dust will be raised about it, and I think it all
poppycock. So in the evening to see "The Postman
Always Rings Twice," almost as engrossing to me
as the book was; and well played, too, in especial
by Jos. Greenwald and Mary Philips.
Wednesday, February 26
r THE OFFICE, and read about the President
and Mr. Farley, and wondered when some Re-
publican newspaper, or even the Nation would
have a piece about M. Farley, called "The Post-
master Always Rings Twice." But it is one of
those things that is nothing but a title. So
read about Georgia's Governor Talmadge, and
Senator Borah, and I was already sick of the
campaign, and so, I think are others, for this
morning I got two letters asking me to print again
BL.T.'s "Canopus," one of them evidently think-
ing that I had written it, which I wish that I had:
When quacks will pills political would dope us
When politics absorb the livelong day,
I like to think about the star Canopus,
So far, so far away!
Greatest of visioned suns, they say who list 'em;
To weigh it science always must despair,
Its shell would hold our whole dinged solar system,
Nor ever know 'twas there.
When temporary chairmen utter speeches,
And frenzied henchmen howl their battle hymns,
My thoughts float out across the cosmic reaches
To where Canopus swims.
When men are calling names and making faces,
And all the world's ajangle and ajar,
I meditate on interstellar spaces,
And smoke a mild seegar.
For after one has had about a week of
The arguments of friends as well as foes,
A star that has no parallax to speak of
Conduces to repose.
So to engage in a momentous Cue Tilt with Clif-
ford Walker, and R. Irwin said, "Well, this will
appear in Mr. Pepy's journal; and then many said,
"Only if he wins." As though that made the
slightest difference to a reporter with veneration
for fact.
Thursday, February 27
FIVE YEARS AGO this morning the last issue
of the New York World was printed, but that
was not the last journalistic death in the town,
forasmuch as the Graphic's expiration came later.
So early in the office, and there a long time, till
past four in the afternoon; and so to play pool,
and had good luck, and so G. Middleton took
Fred Steele and me home, and George told of the
meeting all that day of the Dramatists' Guild
and how the agreement had been arrived at by
them that the playwrights would have the right
to decide about the sale of their plays to the cinema
gentlemen instead of the managers having the
power; and that the major part of the sale price
would go to the playwrights; and what the man-
agers will say to that will probably be in the na-
ture of a vigorous protest; but the playwrights
are organized and the managers would be nought
without them. Lord! if the workers on newspapers'
had as common a goal, or thought they had, as
the playwrights ,there would be great betterment
in journalism for the owners and the ownee. But]
newspaper people believe, apparently, that they
are a craft set apart, a lot of dreamers with their
heads in the clouds! So uptown to a dinner of the
Hoyle Club, very pleasant, too, and so home and
to bed.

that it was past eleven in the morning; and
so up to a fine breakfast of fishballs, and so to the;

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Feb. 29. - If doubt
existed anywhere that the Roose-
velt administration was preparing to
carry on with its farm program re-
gardless of what comes of AAA liti-
gation before the Supreme Court, that
doubt must have been dispelled by
President Roosevelt's speech to the
farm folk at Chicago. Mr. Roosevelt
was back from his Warm Springs va-
cation in a belligerent mood. While
he did not say so specifically, his
speech gave the impression that he
was ready to pick up the battle gauge
thrown into the teeth of the New
Deal by the New York business con-
gress.
Does this mean the end of the
breathing spell? You could read that
into the President's words:
"We are regaining a more fair bal-
ance among the groups which consti-
tute the nation and we must look to
the factors that will make that bal-
ance permanent."
* * *
EVEN more significant was Mr.
Roosevelt's statement that suc-
cess of recovery efforts must not
"blind us to the necessity of looking
ahead to the permanent measures
which are necessary to a more stable
economic life."
Presumably that referred to a prev-
ious presidential intimation that AAA
or something very like it soon or late
would be woven into the permanent
structure of government. It might
also be intended to reply, however, to
the silence of the New York business
"platform" on the farm problem.
And, by way of a possible starting
point so far as future farm legisla-
tion is concerned, this sentence from
the Chicago address is worth noting:
"It is difficult to explain why in
many cases if the farmer gets an in-
crease for his food crop over what
he got three years ago, the consumer
of the city has to pay two and three
and four times the amount of that
increase.
That strongly suggests a White
House sponsored inquiry by Congress
next session into this indicated mid-
dle-man and food processor pyramid-
ing of prices.
LAUNCHING permanent farm leg-
islation of whatever kind at the
coming session with a short congres-
sional stay in Washington desired and
a presidential election impending,
might not be attempted for highly
practical political reasons. Settling
of a congressional high-cost-of-liv-
ing inquiry under those same circum-
stances might possibly turn out to be
a good vote-making move in both city
and country. It would afford the
New Deal a means of answering
charges already so freely circulated
that New Deal farm policy, its "phi-
losophy of scarcity," so-called by
political opponents, is what makes
pork chops, etc., so costly to city
dwellers.
That is, of course, if the New Deal-'
ers are prepared to sustain Mr. Roose-
velt's contention that a double, triple
or even quadruple pyramiding of farm
price increases takes place some-
where along the line before farm
products reach the customers.

From The Daily Files
March 3, 1926

.
Since the public has made up its
mind for or against Prohibition, a
general investigation of the subjcct
would have little effect, inthe opin-
ion of Secretary Mellon. He does not
share the belief of Assistant Secre-
tary Andrews, in charge of Prohibi-
tion enforcement, that inquiry by a
presidential commission would im-
press the people that assist the dry
forces.
"Ingenious, especially in the inlri-
cate details, but it is handicapped by
its inability to take off in short dis-
tances," was the comment given by
Prof. E. A. Stalker of the areonauti-
c. engineering department in regard
to the so-called "heliocopter model"
airplane, designed and built by De
la Cierva, noted Spanish inventor.
