INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY
one of us really grow up, even though we think
are highly sophisticated and above the interests
aere childhood. For four days this week four
ie greatest authorities in this country in their
ective fields talked before Sun er session stu-
s.. The first two had subjects of an abstract
ding nature, "Public Utility Problens,1" and
::s on the "Prophetic Religion." The other pre-
ed a treatment of "The Safety of 'Surgical Op-
ions," and the last gave experimental demon-
:ions of the properties. of liquid air.
Professor Riggs when .he spoke on "Public
ity, Problems," was greeted with an absurdly
11 audience. Dr. Slonimsky had but a half-
ted representation to listen to his remarkably
:tive treatment of phases of the "Prophetic Re-
n." Both these men had messages of the high-
importance to all people. But because their
s chosen seemed ,a little out of the fields: of.
y, only a handful came to hear the lectures.
£?
tring this same week, Dr. Hugh Cabot, dean
Ee Medical school, talked for more than an hour
the "Safety of Surgical Operations" without
mitting himself. It is true that Dr. Cabot told
one might find a good surgeon with confiden e
folding a parley with a book at the corner drug
e and that the audience left his lecture feeling
the doctor was a very good scout with a fine
e of humor. But as far as the relative safety
surgical operations is concernd the audience
v no more than it did before. But why did this
ire pack the Natural Science auditorium to the
ut gallery?
nother example: Friday Mr.' H. H. Sheldon,
he physics department, with liquid air froze
:ury into a virtual hammer, chilled a piece of
-steak till it could be smashed like so much glass,
ran a toy steam engine by the expansion of
fluid. The spectators sat on the edges of their
s like so many children at a three-ring circus.
auditorium was nearly filled. Why?
rhy is it that people who are ostensibly of the
ersity age and grade, who have aspirations to
me. well informed, choose to attend the lec--
s that have the iost interesting-sounding titles?
Y is it that college men and women come to. a
ire to see the speaker perform rather than to
him deliver a grippingly abstract intellectual
age? It is because we never grow up. We
ourselves more "What is this ma going to
than, "What is this man going to say?" Dr.
>t, the famous surgeon, and Mr. Sheldon, the.
icist, appeal to us because they are men of
>n, of physical or material accomplishment,
e Profess r Riggs and Dr. Slonimsky seem to
in. hat other world of intellectuality.
t us apply that same amount of curiosity for
ofmaterial investigation to those things that
ust as real and graphic, the objects of intellect,
esearch. The things :with which Dr. Cabot's
Mr. Sheldon's fields once dealt with were nearly
bstract as those ideas of Professor Riggs and
Slonimsky. It was only by constant-appciation

We wonder if the X. Y. Z. boys have changed
their place of residence for the Summer session?
If La Follete had said what Professor Hobbs
remarked about Germany's winning the war, we
would have had another political scandal.

THE DEMON RUBY OF JODHPORE
Chapter IX: The Abducted Trolley Car
On a certain night in summer at about 9:30 o'clock
anybody abroad on the campus, anybody at all (un-
less he were astigmatic or half seas over) might
have seen two figures making their way or ways
:through the fog. One was that of a young man
clad i yellow dungarees of a young rhetoric in-
structor, while the other was the short, rather dumpy
figure of an elderly female wrapped in a Paisley
shawl and galoshes, and carrying a rolled umbrella.
The young man carried a small iron kettle, and if
you haven't guessed by this time that they are none
other than Bellini Rogers and Mrs. Plummett, you're
' As they rounded the corner of Mason Hall the
fog began to lift and at one and the same time a
broad shaft of light cut through the fraith-like
veils of mist. A bell clanged in the offing.
"Run !" cried Mrs. Plummett, jabbing Rogers in
the short ribs with her umbrella. "Run and we'll
be able to catch a car !" And the old lady gathered
up her skirts and tore off down the walk, leaping the
puddles with a skill and precision remarkable for
one of her years. Rogers followed with the kettle
of custard and rum.
Neither saw the figures of two who followed
close behind!
"Stop!" shouted 'Mrs. Plummett, brandishing her
umbrella at, the car.
Rogers with'rare presence of mind siezed a red
lantern from a nearby excavation and waved it.
The car passed'them and came slowly to a stop.
They clamored on board.' They were the sole
passengers. As the, car lurched ahead two men clad
in mackintoshes. and felt hats swung aboard and
took seats near the door.
"Where are we gonig?" inquired Rogers, as he
stooped to poke the kettle under the seat.
"Well," said Mrs. Plummett, laying the umbrella
,across. her knees. "I think the best thing we can
4o, if we want to save Saloma Ventricle frm the
hands of Kar Putt Singh, is to see a licensed ac-
countant about the fourth dimension."
"Let us first go to the city hall," put in Rogers,
"and get out an injunction against Singh forbidding
him the use of quadratics."
"The very thing !" cried the old lady. "And in the
meantime let us have a peg o custard."
So they sat in the trolley car and drank custard
as they bowled merrily along. All at once the car
gave a sickening lurch to the windward.
"'m sorry," said the motorman, apoligetically.
"One of the' rails is missing there. It won't hap-
pen again."
"Aren't we almost there?" asked Rogers, after
about half an hour.
"Shh," breathed Mrs. Plummett, nodding to-
ward the: two men in front. She began to make
deaf and: dumb signs with her fingers. Rogers un-
derstood her perfectly because of once having con-
ducted a partyof Summer session students through
a deaf-and-dumbery.
"Look out of the window," he read.
He did. The wind had risen and had lifted the
fog. The night was calm and clear and a mod-
erately full moon shown over the landscape. As
he looked he started with astonishment. The trol-
ley car had left the tracks and was moving across

the field !
"What has happened !" he flashed to Mrs. Plum-
tnett on his fingers.
"We shall see," she signalled back.
She was right.
Suddenly the lights went black! In .the pale
moonlight Rogers, could see the. two men move to-
ward them. He heard Mrs. Plummett strike out
with her umbrella. One man went down -beneath
the blow. Then hordes burst into the car and they
were overpowered by numbers.
"Hold on to the custard!" he heard Mrs. Plum-
imett shout as they were being dragged along the
road. Through the suffocating folds of the blanket
that was thrown oirer his head he could hear their
captors talking in a strange sibilant tongue. He
recognized it. Malay ! He once had conducted a
tour through a malarial hospital.
'His captors came to a halt at last and he strug-
gled out of the blanket. Before him lay the Huron,
peaceful in the moonlight. A ship with a high stern
and slatted sail lay in at shore. He gasped -with as-
tonishment. A, Chinese junk on the Huron!
Then someone struck him over the head with a
crowbar. He sank in a heap-naturally.
(Continued presently.)

callous boy "Allows Playmate to Drown for $,.Io."
