.A cute tale. The moral of which was summed

oubt) with the following comrent on Miss

Going My Way presents a digest of what's
worthwhile in the newspaper columns this week.
The Washington Ferris Wheel..
IT IS NOT generally known in official Wash-
ington, but Madame Perkins is carrying on
a series of secret negotiations with Leon Hen-
derson, price control mogul, on the effect of
baked beans in the Army.
President Roosevelt would like this kept out
of the newspapers as it may mean the Allies'
losing the war, but the United States has a new
secret weapon so destructive that it is guaran-
teed to kill one thousand Nazis a minute. Next
week this fearless column will publish the plans
in their entirety so that all may see.

THE PRESIDENT was out somewhere on the
Atlantic hobnobbing with his foreign friends,
so I took a spin out to Seattle in the morning to
visit Sistie and Buzzie. The chubby little cherubs
are growing up. In Hotchkiss Corners, Georgia,
for lunch with Governor Talmadge at the Hotch-
kiss Corners Women's Club, and thence to San
Francisco where I talked to a youth group. These
people were against war, but youth is so head-
strong. Their parents, who really know best,
think it's just fine. And so back to Washington
and to bed at 10 p.m. after a slow day.

I HAVE nothing against labor unions. But
Joe Klump, who 'runs a turret lathe in the
Froitzboinder Girdle factory, an industry vital
to national defense, is a skunk. His wife was in
jail seven times. Klump himself collects postage'
stamps, thus hoarding the nation's wealth.
Ilump has an aluminum leg, which he has not
contributed to national defense. He was arrested
:for speeding in 1936, and his nephew, Emil
Kloztface, is a drunkard. In short, Joe Klump is
an out-and-out rat. To make things worse, he is
a member of the CIO-Girdle Worker's Union.
This is definite proof that all of the unions are
rackets and should be tarred-and-feathered and
run out of the country on a rail.
about-face in the attitude of the southern na-
tions, and evidence a new desire of those coun-
tries tp cooperate more with the United States.
In Argentina, for example, it has been an-
nounced that Edmund von Thermann, German
ambassador to that nation, whose expulsion has
been demanded by the chamber of deputies, may
soon depart voluntarily because of public pres-
sure. At the same time a report comes that the
deputies have gone on a legislative strike, re-
fusing to pass any further measures of the gov-
ernment of Acting President Castillo because
of its pro-Nazi leanings.
Tuesday night in Washington the two arch-
rivals of the hemisphere, United States and the
Argentine "Republic, signed a three-year recip-
rocal trade act, the first commercial arrange-
ent between the two nations since 853. The
treaty was the twelfth trade agreement reached
with American republics by the United States.
ACROSS THE ANDES in Chile a huge anti-
totalitarian demonstration on a national
scale was held Sunday. Peru has signed an agree-
ment to turn over every bit of its strategic ma-
terials to the United States. In Uruguay windows
of German stores have been smashed and a
derisive swastika painted on the walls of the
Spanish legation.

Brazil has closed down a German language
newspaper in'the heart of the German settle-
mtnt in Southern Brazil because of its activi-
ties in spreading Nazi propaganda. Paraguay
has issued a law, decreeing death for anyone
convicted of fifth columnist activities.
Taken together these individual acts are sig-
nificant of a fast-growing opposition to the
Axis in the southern half of the continent of
South American-the very half which formerly
was the coldest to the appeals for cooperation
made by the United States.
W[HAT IS THE REASON? It is certainly not
that Southern South America has sudden-
ly discovered a new affinity for "Los Yanquis."
As a matter of fact, those nations-with reason
enough-still regard the United States with
considerable reservations, tinged with actual
dislike in many cases.
The large German populations might have
made it possible for the Nazi government to cul-
tivate a very cozy friendship in South America
by this time. But that friendship has not been

THE RAIN was beating down on the roof, and
it was the kind of day that sort of makes me
wonder why I'm alive. It was dark and the
earthworms were skwushy under my feet as I
walked. Old Joe was walking next to me. "Why
do people live?" I asked him. He said, "I don't
know," and it made me feel all good inside. So
I took out a gun ,and shot myself.

WHEN VIRGIL SAID, "The noblest motive is
the public good," he spoke for our time as
well as his own. "Nothing worth having in this
world, least of. all democracy, can be achieved
save as the cost of it is paid in self-discipline."
So said other great men, but this 'particular
statement is by Harry Emerson Fosdick, scholar
and preacher, whose industry, loyalty and
achievement is evident of his right to speak.
Many who wear the badge of religion or of the
other professions, unlike tis man, speak fluently
about ideals but fail to perform the introductory
and the continuing tasks which actualize them.
All intellectuals are thought to be in that case
by the rustics.
It is wholesome to recall the campus proce-
dures of one hundred years ago:-"Monday
morning, freshmen, Greek New Testament, the
Gospels; Tuesday morning, sophomores, Greek
New Testament, Acts; Wednesday morning, Jun-
iors, Greek New Testament, the Epistles." There
were no seniors, or perhaps onMonday morning'
they would have been assigned in Latin, Dun
Scotus criticism of Aquinas. Our grandparents
laid the foundation for a type of democracy_
which made these .United States a blessing 'to
the entire world, brought to our shores rugged
minds from every foreign people and set our
nation deep in the basic values of God and man.
WHAT of our own day? There may have been
decades when spending the winter at a re-
sort could pass for a University education but,
that day is past. Entire continents are at stake.
The moral structure of western culture is ques-
tioned. The whole pattern of life which our
fathers and our leaders have taught us to love
is riddled. Therefore, we are all in search for
On objective issues there are diverse opinions.
Who are at :war? One writer says youth and
age; Hitler representing youth and Churchill,
age. Another states that the lines in China are
most definite; a central conservative government
which calls itself New China at war with Com-
munistic peasants while the foreigner is bomb-
ing from the skies. But he goes on to say that
the same lines are drawn in England, in Ger-
many, in France and in America. Another ob-
server tells us of our old securities. The capital-
istic system, our Christianity, our free public
education, with a wide margin of luxury are
gone and the clock is being turned back 1,000
years. A fourth has it that our destiny is deter-
mined by the heavenly bodies and under the
stars of 1940-50 man's office must be to revert
to barbarism.,
ON ONE subjective issue at least, there is unity,
that of discipline. The interventionist says,

"join with England and Russia in dead earnest
to strengthen our, democracy for the tAsk." The
supporter of "supplies but not men" thesis ex-
horts us to hurry along the job, hence he would
have discipline to that end. The obstructionist
takes refuge in "make America worth defend-
ing," hence he too is ready to take training in
home improvement. He who sees the world con-
flict as a suicidal mismanagement on every front
is willing to create of. the United States the,
model democratic commonwealth so he"is for
discipline. Evidently, regardless of the position
taken on the major world happenings, we are
out for a new morale, a renewal of our souls at
the altar of common struggle. If we keep the
right to register opinion and the right to stand
before God, whose consideration of the infinite
values rise above any state and over all prefer-
ences, as we courageously discipline ourselves in
collective behavior, we will arrive. Here, then,
is one platform on which every section of our
community can unite; each must get down to
that which for the good of all seems to be funda-
mental, and stay at a few given disciplinary
tasks with a will.
In this sort of a world, the man in search for

One'Daily feature that I miss this
year is the regular listing of radio

and I know that many Daily readers
will agree with me.

(EDITOR'S NOTE-The radio pro-
grams were discontinued because it
was felt that there was not enough
demand for them to warrant the ex-
penditure of valuable space which
could be used for other items. How-
ever, we'd like to hear from as many
students as possible upon the subject
of resuming the Radio Spotlight, our
regular radio program schedule. If
there is sufficient demand we shall
