HA, DESMOND, SO YOU REFUSE?
Strikes, strikes, strikes ! In Chicago the street
car workers are on strike, in New York 5o,ooo cloak
makers walked out, on the Great Lakes the sailors
and freight handlers have stopped sailing and handl-
ing freight, and all over the country railroad shop
eniployees are engaged in an indeterminate struggle
with their employers to see which can hold out the
longest. Strikes, strikes, strikes ! And in the mean-
time, while the industrial belligerents are having it
out with each ot.her, the public stands by and gazes
with wonder and fast-dying patience at the spectacle
of a nation on strike.
The railroad strike, however, is the most serious
of all, for without transportation even the looms
cannot spin, and even a temporary let-up in indus-
try is a grave handicap to a nation's industrial pro-
gress. The federal government drew up proposals
looking to an arbitrary settlement by calling two
meetings, one of the union leaders and the other of
the 'road executives. The union men, meeting in
Chicago, have already indicated their willingness to
accept the administration's plan, but, strange though
it may seem, the employers have refused, on the
grounds that they do not consider it just to enter
into an agreement whereby the strikers will be re-
turned with full seniority rights. The question of
seniorityis one which has been a constant source
of agitation to workers and employers, for if the
strikers lose their priority rights and win the strike,
they have lost their most valued prerogative, after
A strike is recognized as a rightful means of any
group of employees to secure justification of any
wrongs inflicted upon them by their employers.
Thus,, then, if the strike is ended, and the points of
disagreement are successfully met, the men have a
just right to expect that their former privileges will
be restored to them. This, however, the road lead-
ers object to, and in their stubbornness are adding
further obstacles to the possibility of a quick and
peaceful settlement. The time for quibbling has
ended-one side or the other must make conces-
sions and leave the less serious wrinkles to be
ironed out by a joint committee after the wheels of
industry are again humming. The laboring group
has agreed to accept the government's peace propos-
al-let the executives follow their example, or the
government will have to step in and settle the strike
without the consent o fthe owners. When labor, us-
ually considered erratic, agrees to arbitrate, capital
has little argument for refusing to give its share.
The worm is turning-and this time it is labor, and
not capital, which is the early bird.
LEARN TO LEARN
Why is it that some students can spend their
evenings dancing, their afternoons on the river or
playing tennis, and still pass all their courses with
very fair marks, while others must spend all their
time grinding over their text books and then very
often do not receive more than passing grades?
This question is an interesting one and one that by
many is recognized as being a stickler. However,
according to the psychologist, the question is a com-
paratively simple one to answer, necessitating only
the explanation of two methods of learning-the
rote, and the logical.
Those who keep their noses to the abrasive discs
of knowledge, without having its effect noticeable
on their classroom reports, are not necessarily to be
condemned for ignorance. It is very often that
these people are perfectly normal, but, to put it
clearly, they have not learned how to learn. The
average college student has a mental capacity cap-
able of grasping the logical method of learning, but
he fails to develop this method, either because he
has been taught the other in high school, or finds
logical learning slightly more difficult.
The acquisition of a study by logical learning is
the opposite of word-for-word memorizing, and
involves the complete understanding of a funda-
mental and the ability to apply to and explain by
the fundamental, problems or things relative to it or
dependent upon it. There are a number of courses
offered in the University that can be learned only
through roteilaerning, such as courses that depend
upon the remembrance of cold and bare facts. The
freshman year in any college is always the most dif-
ficult, and primarily because the first year man does
not know how to study. College professors are as a
rule not extraordinary teachers, for the ability to
teach is not demanded of them. What they must
have is a complete knowledge of their course and
the college student is considered sufficiently mature
to be able to grasp his knowledge in whatever form
or shape it may be presented to him, and arrange
it in a logical manner.
There are a great many hours actually wasted over
text books, hours that could be used to advantage on
other subjects. And there always will be wasted
hours over studying, until the grinding type of stu-
dent learns how to learn.
Dr. May called up the office and told us that we
were getting all the rain yesterday and the gym-
nasium district was dry. We watched the clouds,
and soon the "worm turned." He who laughs last
laughs best, Doc.

Town column out of business. If a little strike vis-

ETIQUETTE FOR THE INSTRUCTOR
With all the books and newspaper publicity this
problem of etiquette is getting, the United States
bids fair to become the most etiquetted country on
the globe. We hope to further the good work in

pith the common and often puzzling problems which
are bound to confront even the most well-bred in-
i. Coming to class. This is a matter that can-
not be too strongly dwelt upon. The instructor
should come to class. Otherwise he will disappoint
some of his class, and is apt to get into difficulties
with the authorities. Care should be taken, how-
ever, not to arrive to early, nor yet so late as to cre-
ate the impression among the more restless spirits
that he is not coming at all. This is, as we say, a

cases to wear knickerbockers. We advise a consult-
ation with Dr. May first.

* T HE selling of commodities is fundamental in
every business, and selling life insurance af
muneration. For the life insurance salesman
is a business builder and finds innumerable ways to
serve the community and make himself indispensable
in the conduct of modern affairs.
The life insurance salesman is not only a business builder
but he is in business for himself, creating a competence per-
manent and continuous. It is the best paid work for those
who are ambitious and willing to work, and who have the
character and stamina necessary to stamp their individuality
upon the business and on their community.
