Mrs. Reed has spoken before clubs
and organizations from coast to coast.
Preceding her visit are recommenda-
tions from various college and uni-
versity officials, including Princeton1
University, the University of Indiana,
and Antioch College. .
She has been a student of Soviet
affairs since the Russian revolution
and has been in Russia six times. She
speaks from personal contact with
various aspects of Soviet life. She
has relatives living in Russia and a
grandson is attering school there.
Mrs. Reed was active in the wom-
an's sufferage campaign and during
the World War served for three years
>n an eastern school committee. She
is author of articles appearing in the
"Nation," the "New Freeman," "The
Boston Globe," and "The New York

one, could easily alter the whole
scheme of our government. One giv-
ing federal control to all commerce,
irrespective of whether or not it
crosses state lines, for instance, would
remove any constitutional objection
to an NRA. 1
Whatever will happen, we are,
without a doubt, in for an era of
expanding governmental functions,
an era of liberalism, as compared
with 12 years of Republican conserv-
atism, and an era of more centralized
Finally, what about the remnants
of the Republican party? When those
Republicans that escaped the deluge
emerge from the ark on some Maine
or Vermont mountain top, they will
be faced with a very difficult task.
True there are more than 15,000,000
of them left in America-no infinite-
simal minority, despite the unprece-
dented Roosevelt victory. Few will
contend that the Republican party is
dead or that it no longer has a func-
tion. Ours is essentially a two-party
government and the need for a wide
awake opposition to watch a powerful
majority is precious.
The Republicans can serve that
function, and, for the present, the
conservative party, they havea fun-
damental difference of ideas with the
Democrats. It is too early to hazard
a guess as to whether a 'strong
farmer-labor party will be formed
in 1940, to become a major political*
group, but for the present, as the
Detroit News says, there is no one
better. qualified to oppose and to
beat a Democrat than a Republican.
True the "Revolution of 1800" wiped
out the Federalists, and it is pos-
sible that the "Revolution of 1936"
will eventually wipe out the Repub-
But they are still a party with mil-
lions of supporters, and it is to them
that we must look for the "loyal op-
position." When the GOP is able to
clear away the debris, it is reason-
ably safe to predict that its leaders
--be they the Kansas gentlemen or
others-will reorganize it and start toj
look forward to the 1938 election. If
again they are repudiated, then we
may really talk about the death of
the Republican party. But not until.

The faculty records which are pre-
served in about half a dozen ledgers,
will be placed in the William L. Cle-

material relative to the student life
in the period covered, which ended in
approximately 1880.'
All of the records are in original
form. Some are duplicated, the later
set having been drawn up in more
formal form.

That there are very few of the so-
called "Fountain Pen" inks that are
fit to put in a fountain pen?
There are four main ways in
which they do not serve satisfactorily
as fountain pen inks:
1. Some contain ingredients which
rot the rubber ink sack, causing loss
of ink capacity and leaky pens.
2. Most inks containtsedimentary
material which clogs the. capillary
ducts and the air channel preventing
proper flow and slowing up the
filling process.
3. Some contain "quick-drying" in-
gredients which cause hard starting,
and flooding of the point.
4. Many inks have no permanent
record qualities and will fade or
wash off of the paper (yourletter
to that friend may never be received
if it rains during its delivery.)
The United States Bureau of Stan-
dards has a formula which must be
adhered to by all manufacturers who
wish to sell ink to the United States
Government. This ink happens to
be the best fountain pen ink as well
as the best record ink.

tain pen to the best that can be had,
and at the same price as ordinary
ink, come to -
