t t
Methuselah was the Bibical patri-
arch wha was said to have lived for
969 years. Doctors today predict that
during the next half century twenty
ye'ars will be added to man's average
life, and declare that the time "is
near at hand when it will not only be
'a crime to die of typhoid fever, but a
crime to die under 75 years of age of
diabetes, bright's disease, the various
cardiac vascular diseases, and possi-
bly cancer."
The wonders accomplished by med-
ical science cannot be fully appreciat-
ed until it is realized that the average
span of life has been increased from
20 years fi the sixteenth century, to
55 years at the present time.. This has
been due to the saving in the lives of
infants and children, the cutting in
half of the tuberculosis death rate,
and the better control of infectious
and contagious diseases. The next
step is the instruction of the public
'in intelligent living, and another twen-
ty years wil Tbe added to man's aver-
age life.
The question raised by these facts is
whether the mind of man is being
equipped for this longevity. A trav-
eller about to embark upon a long
voyage is careful to pack his trunk
so as to provide for all emergencies
and every comfort on the journey.
Surely ifman is to begin a 75 year
excursion upon the road of life, it is
just as important that he be equipped
with all the mental facilities for un-
derstanding such a long voyage.

Shakespearean repetoire and mod-
ern plays will*be offered by the Shakes-
peare Playhouse company, which will
present a three-day series of open-
air plays here Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday of next week. The plays are
given under the auspices of the Eng-
lish department of the University.
To Play in Amphitheater
The company will open its engage-
ment Thursday night with Shakes-
peare's "Merchant of Venice." Jer-
ome's "Passing of the Third Floor
Back," will be the Friday night offer-
ing. Shakespeare's "As You Like It,"
will be given Saturday afternoon, and
the engagement will close 'Saturday
night with George Bernard Shaw's
"Candida. '

there this season by the McEntee com-
Receives Commendation
"Last night's rain-fall, coming at the
most inopportune time, marred one
of the most, charming and artistic en-
tertainments which has been provided
Princeton's lovers of the drama dur-
ing recent years. Had it rained be-
fore Frank McEntee and his players
began their performance of "Hamlet"
in the quadrangle of Ithe graduate
college, tehe event would have been
postponed until tonight.
Previous to the disturbing elements,
the performance was a marked suc-
cess. The ghost scene, interpreted
according to the conception of Shakes-
peare's own 'time, was most effective.
The lighting affects, the accoustics, and
above all the architectural setting
were admiralbly suited to producing
the classic. It is to be hoped that the
University will soon have another op-
portunity of attending a play acted
by Mr. McEntee, Miss Kearns, and
their distinguished company."

" Is education too costly? This is a
question that more and more is be-
coming a bugbear of discussion and
comment among city and state gov-
ernments that are obliged to maintain
schools on a progressive basis.
This is a time when cities and states,
as well as individuals, feel economic
pressure and financial stress. It is
a time when everybody preaches and.
few practice economy. At such a
time it is but natural that the ques-
tion is raised as to whether too much
public money is going for educational
innovations, for fads and frills and
non-essentials. Such charges must be
first of all faced by school authorities
themselves; they must be able to just-
ify every expenditure.
Extravagance, waste, and graft
should not be tolerated at any time,
and least of all during these hard
times. But it is safe to say that the
funds for education are the most con-
scientiously administered of all those
raised by public taxation.
And yet there always are, and there
always Nwill be a few critics who raise
the cry that schools cost too much.
These critics are apt to forget that'
the price of everything else we have
has increased proportionately. Food,
elothes, light, land, ernt; transporta-
tion, and salaries have become more
and more expensive during the last
decade; and the cost of school build-:
ings, school equipment, janitors' ser-
vices, and everything else that must
be provided for in connection with an
educational institution has obeyed the
same law.
But what of the charge that educa-
tion is too expensive for the state to
afford? The only answer is that
education 'cannot cost too much.
The only reply is that education at any
prize, as any sane-minded and right
thinking person will realize, is much
less expensive than ignorance and
her playmates, immorality and crime.
Our Government is founded upon the
principle of intelligent and virtuous
citizenship. And the only means of in-
suring intelligent and virtuous cit-
izenship is by educaton-educaton at
any price.
Herbert Kauffman again shouts a
warning against traitors whom he
says are within our borders. The
people along the Atlantic coast have
the worst bolshevik scare that this
country has ever seen.
John Bernard, present whereabouts
unknown, sold the people of Detroit a
goldbrick in the way of a Fourth of
July pageant that never materialized.
We middle-westerners are still a lit-
tle provincial.

"If a foreign ship enters our ports,
it is exempt from local regulations
and rules so far as local conditions
permit," declared Prof. E. D. Dickinson a
in an address on "International Out-
laws, Mexico and Russia," yesterday
afternoon in the Natural Science audi-
torium. "The same rule holds true
with foreign ambassadors and con-
suls," he continued, "if they ciolate
laws, they are not held liable, so that
friendly relations may be maintained
with the government they represent.
Provided, of course, that 'we have rec-
ognized that government.
U. S. Sets Standard
"Up to the 18th century, England
and France recognized a foreign gov-
ernment, only when it was in the con-
trol of a legitimate dynasty. How-
ever, after the Revoluntionary war,
the United tSates set a new standard
when they began to recognize any
government that was in control in its
own country. This policy continued
until 1914, when President Wilson re-
fused to recognize the Huerta govern-
ment in Mexico, on thq ground that it
was not representing the choice of
the Mexican people, and we have con-
tinued this policy to the present time.
Russia and Mexico Outlaws
"When a government is not recog-
nized, as in the case of Russia and
Mexico, it has no social status or
legal position among nations and it;
is a sort of outlaw. Society among
nations is still unorganized and mem-
bership can only be obtained when the
government is recognized."
Professor Dickinson discussed the
various legal complications that are
caused by the refusal of the Unitedt
States to recognize neither Russia nor

Twelve letter men from last year's

ball men. First practice will start on
Sept. 15, with Coach Yost in charge.
Eight men have been lost from the
