THE AMERICAN MORON
William Allen White, 'editor and author, has re-
itly come out with the very astounding state-
nt that the majority of those living in the United
tes'are morons-persons with a mental age from
en to twelv years inclusive. He has based his
tement on the intelligence examinations given by
ntal examiners of the army. .Mr. White attri-
tes the low caliber of our .public officials to the
dishness of the electorate who are frequently
:en in by platitudes, pretentious, baby-kissings and
idshakings of' incompetent "good fellows."
A; prominent psychologist said that the adult with
14-year-old brain was able to get along ordin-
ly and could even make a useful contribution to
:iety. He also added that the 14-year-olds, while
:y may achieve success, can not do the abstract
nking'required to pass judgment on international
ations, tariff, fiscal policies, iponetary questions
i philosophical questions. In these fields they
low the crowd.
Professor Wenley, of this University, maintains
t the tragedy of his generation is its lack of great
n. Everyone has opinions, but there are all too
v'who really think.
Granting that what these men have said is true,
at is the matter, and is there a remedy? The
.tter seems to be that the standards of this coun-
are too, materialistic, and not concerned enough
:h the necessity of intellectual improvement. But
ofessor' Wenley's generation is by no means void
great men. Luther Burbank is a great man, and
in Burroughs, Marconi, Thomas Edison, Henry
rd, and Herbert Hoover are all great men in, their
e. But their achievements are chiefly in the field
science rather than in the arts. It sems to be the
e that those who are great in literature and the
ral arts usually do not have their achievements
ognized until after their death.
l'oday is the day of the practical, and men appre-
te only what they can thoroughly grasp. Statis-
s are misleading at their best, and man is not a
chanical affair who can be indexed thus and so
ording to his mental abilities. The men judged
morons may be so according to some stan'dards,
: it seems a fallacy to form standards that are
y above the heads of the vo populi. A stand-
Swhcih is only a standard and which can not be
: to practical use is worthless. -The normal person
:he ideal and the ideal man does not exist.
HOUSING THE SUMMER WOMEN
t seems that one of things which ought to be
en into greater consideration is that of the hous-
problem of' the women who are on the cam-
during the Summer session. It is riuch harder
the women students to become acquainted with
another during a time when entertainments are
r in number and when the time is limited, than
s during the regular sessions. Apparently there
uld be no necessity for closing two dormitories
he same time. Of course, certain repairs have
>e made in all buildings, but could not these be
eseen that one dormitory alone would be closed
ing each summer-and so provide a much larger
aber of students with a social center?
'he women who study here during the Summer
ion merit as much consideration in this re-
as far as exchanging ideas and opinions with peo-
ple who have the same interests at heart. New-
berry residence has hitherto been open each sum-
mer since its construction, and it is conceivable that
the repairs which are being made at present could
pot have been completed in as short a time as the
period between semesters. However, activities such
as the 'redecorating of the Martha Cook building
could be postponed until the close of the Summer
sessions and so provide places for, a large number
of th9se who really desire to live in dormitoires
and coul'd not be accommidated. It seems but a
common sense conclusion that inasmuch ,as the
dormitories are already built, they should be util-
ized to the greatest advantage.
OUR WOMEN'S TENNIS CHAMPION
The attitude taken by Mrs. Mallory after her de-
feat in England at the hands of Suzanne Lenglen,
'he French star, was anythiig but what would make
the American people proud of their women's ten-
nis champion. Mrs. Mallory is a poor loser.
It will be remembered that the American papers
were very caustic in their comments regarding Suz-
ann'e Lenglen's failure to play Mrs. Mallory in this
country last year. Miss Lenglen came to this coun-
try scheduled to play the American champion, and
just before the match was taken ill and had to
cancel her engagement with Mrs. Mallory.
When Mrs. Mallory received her one-sided beat-
ing at Wimblton recently, she immediately turned
around and began making excuses, instead of tak-
ing her defeat as a true sportswoman should. She
complained about her health, her unfamiliarity with
the English courts, the time of day the match was
, played, and various other things that were childish.
The American style of sportsmanship has the repu-
tation of being unique in its degree of fairness, and
it is too bad for both the American people and Mrs.
Mallory that she should have shown herself to be
such a poor loser.

A Sonnet on the Demise of the Lineg Collar
The army shirt and red-hot days
Have knelled the hard-boiled collar's end;
And now the swanlike neck we bend
Untrammelled by the cursed graze
Of starchy linen when it frays.
With glee the linen collar rend !
With reverence let your thanks ascend
To Fashion's ever-changing ways.
But there, perhaps, the trouble lies:
The wheel of Fashion swings about,
And just as we're about to shout
The unmourned linen's glad demise -
The wheel swings back, the soft shirt's out!
Ah, god of comfort, how time flies!
A Foot Note to the River Among Oilher Things
When we first began this colyuu we used to sit
down to the Aero-eight we write it on and be clever
right out of the old bean. After a few days the
friends noticed a subtle change coming over us.
They came and pleaded with us not to be so clever
all the time. It was wearing on us-and on them.
So we decided to make this,colyum a commentary
;That's where all great men get their start, com-
menting on life. Take Shakespeare, for instance;
take G. D. E.; take the innocuous youth with whom
we share this page and with whom we have to
squabble every day as to who shall write enough
to fill the space. Yes, take him, and when you get
him let us know and we'll bring around the sawed-
off shot gun we have been treasuring up.
The other day we ment up the river--oh, alone-
to commune with Nature and to see if life was be-
ing lived as strongly as it used to be during the
early rivet season.
We struggled up the stream against the current
and the wind and out better judgment, and at last
propped the wreck of the Hesperus against the bank
and lay back to watch the pageant of summer school
We hear by devious pathways that some one has
inquired if we are the humor editor or the humor-
