FIGHTING THE SOCIALISTS
Believing that the wild-eyed, loud mouthed Social-
ist has duped the people of Michigan long enough
without any opposition, a new type of soap box
orator has made its headquarters in Detroit.
The Constitutional Defense League has begun
to start operations in this state. Its speakers talk
from the soap box on the curb and distribute their
literature among the pedestrians, using practically
the same methods as do the radical Socialists. They
preach doctrine of Americanism against Socialism of
social reform versus revolution, and they preach it
with vigor, challenging any Socialist to a public
debate at any time of night or day. They are skill-
ed orators who have made an extensive study of
the radical's philosophy and type of argument and
are capable of meeting its expounders in debate.
The League has been organized three years
and it has been doing some commendable work.
Such an organization most certainly has a service
to perform. Soap box oratory, though not very
convincing in name, wields a great influence over
the minds of many, and much dirty work has been
successfully carried out by the radical Socialists
through just such methods of getting at the public.
The Socialists in America have carried on extensive
and powerful propaganda, and their glib-tongued
expounders have not been unheard. But until the
Constitutional Defense League was organized, they
had none to refute their strong-lunged statements to
the people whose minds are swayed by what they
hear from the sop box pulpit. Now the soap box
audience has an opportunity to hear the other side
of a yellow propaganda that makes its appeal to
the working class.
Though the League's speakers are exceedingly
interesting and have a wealth of sound arguments
and good material in back of them, their business
need not carry them to Ann Arbor because the So-
cialists of this city are happily confined exclusively
to the parlor type.
Gone are Joes' and the Orient, but in their place
as rendezvous for refreshment craving students has
arrived the pop corn stand. Pop corn unlike most
other things has had a revival out of all proportion
with any discoveries in its qualities. During the
period immediately following the passing of the
eighteenth amendment, students have sought, quite
unsatisfactorily it would seem, for a substitute for
their rolicking times at these places, and as a con-
sequence soda fountains and lunch counters have
sprung up in .vast numbers. The most satisfactory
solution yet discoveerd seems to be the pop corn
Like all modern industries that would keep and
increase their business vast improvements have been
made, until today the pop corn vender is as much
a business man as any other person who caters to
student trade. After the first lap of studying, or
perhaps getting ready to study, the fragrant scents
of freshly roasted corn which float up and down
State street tempt scores of students and residents
to desert their toils, in order to make purchases.
When one views the greatness of the throng
which stands patiently in line to get the corn, one
cannot help but wonder what the cause of this in-
creased consumption may be. It is possible that
there has been a resurrection of thrift in students,
but that is little credited. However, it is to be re-
gretted that the popularity of pop corn like other
summer delicacies will doubtlessly wane with the
departure of summer.
(Ann Arbor Times News)
Carlton F. Wells, Ann Arbor's new state golf
champion, made several statements in his talk at
the Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday noon
which are deserving of wider circulation.
Chief among them, perhaps, was the contrast be-
tween golf and football, which he brought out forci-
bly during his remarks. At a football game, said
Mr. Wells, not one person in ten in the stands plays
the game. In golf, although the galleries are far
smaller, practically every person in the gallery plays
This is a new way of pointing out one of the
big reasons for the rapid spread of interest in golf.
Everyone who is not actually crippled can play the
game. Young children are learning to play on three
of the courses near Ann Arbor, while on the same
links enthusiasts well past middle age may also be
The great stimulus in golf is in bettering your
own game, rather thon in beating some one else,
and in this difference from many other athletic con-
tests, also, probably lies some of the fascination of
That interest in the ancient Scotch game is grow-
ing in Ann Arbor is apparent from the steadily in-
creasing memberships of the local clubs. The bring-
ing of the state championship to this city will add
to the keenness with which local enthusiasts will
take up golf.
There is no danger that golf will usurp the place
of baseball in American sports, for the national
pastime has as firm a hold as ever on the interest of
a million fans. But golf interest is growing and
will continue to grow through the even closer hold
which it exerts on the thousands of men and women
who actually play the game.
Pig league baseball will continue to reign su-
preme as a national spectacle, but golf is the com-
ing national pastime.
THE FRYING PAN

To mind the gilt-edge rool
But when the simmer come about

THEN the teacher go to school!

"As dishonorable," says the answer to the eti-
quette problem in the Chi Trib yesterday, "as dis-
honorable as one who would deliberately open a let-
ter addressed.to another is a person who reads a
communication left unfinished."
Very dishonorable, and besides, the technique is
bad; you should wait until the letter is finished so
you can get all the dope.
"Smoking Taken Seriously by British Women."
So is smoking taken seriously by American wom-
en, especially members of the W. C. T. U., and the
old ladies of both sexes in the Prohibition party.

His nerve was monumental;
And in that time he had acquired
