Chapter II
The great detective Hlanded in a
heap on the cold damp floor of the pit
into which-he'had been lured. He
saw it all now. The figure he had seen
with the upraised knife had' been but
the reflection of the actual person,
who must have lbeen standing hebind
him, in a mirror.' When the detective
had hurled hisself, at the supposed
figure the mirror had been slid aside,
allowing the man-hunter to pitch
headlongst in to this dismal abyssm.
Scrambling to his feet the resource-
ful Nik Arter attempted to climb up
the walls of the cement well, for such
indeed it were. But a steel door had
been slid over the openig and he
was: TRAPPED!
Suddenly he noticed/ that his feet
were wet! There were three unac-
counted for inches of rain on the floor
of his cell. Even as he discovered this
he eflt the ;water about his ankles:
the water was rising, rising, rising.
He looked about in the darkness fran-
ticly-he saw nothing, no exits. 'He
elt around the wals, every inoh. The
only projection he found was a short
wooden lever with a large cork on the
end of it which stuck out from the
wall about an inch from the steel roof
of the pit.
Nil Arter stood thinking, sciatching
the tip of his nose pensively, all the
while. Slowly, slowly {he water rose.
At the same tiie Nik became aware
of a low pulsating note booming -up
from outside tlhe pit. Our hero bad
not been the Pride of AN Harbor for
nothing: he could add to and to to-
gether every time and get 4.
He- had it! What he heard was a
powerful water pump, pumping' water
into this deathtrap slowly. It was
fixed so that when the water rose to
within an inch of the top of the
chamber it would lift the cork floater
and its lever, thus shutting off the
pump. By this time the water was up
to his neck. It rose. He stood on his
tip toes so that he head was touching
the steel cover of the chamber. Just
as the water rose over his nose he]
took a long deep magnificent breath

and grasping the cork float and lever
held it down so that when the level of
the water reached it-the motor would
keep pumping.
The water reached the lever! Pass-
ed it! The pump pumped steadily on.
'The water reacheq the roof: the cell
was filled with water! Then just
what the detective had hoped, hap-
pened. The pressure of the still in-
coming water broke the steel lid of,
the pit from its hasps and the wate
overflowed, carrying the clever de-
tective with it.,
He had just clambered out onto the
floor of the dark room above when a
shot rang out!

Editor, The Summer Michigan Daily:
Some of the articles and letters that
you have been publishing in the Sum-
mer Daily have provoked thought in
my mind as well as, I am sure, in
many others, but as I have been culti-
vating the habit of keeping my own]
council I hesitated to say anything.
There are probably dozens of others
like mp whose typewriters will be
uncovered by your lamentations on the
dearth of campus opinion.
To begin with, I am an American
and proud. of it. Also I am proud of
America and the Americans, tho it
is the habit ot the intelligentsia here
and elsewhere to speak slightingly of
them. When Bertrand Russell speaks'
shudderingy of American industrial
mechanism I wonder if we are really
any more mechanistic than England,
Germany, Belgium, and parts of
France. In fact it seems to me that
the European proletariat lack an im-
aginative quality which permeates the
American through and through. Even
here in the United States there is that
almost indefinable difference (call it
hope if you wish) between the Amer-
ican and the European ,even tho they
may be working side by side in the
ditch.
The fact of the matter is that Eu-
rope is parading before our eyes a
culture which is essentially a pro-
duct of the past centuries. Being
rooted in the soil it has preserved in
spite of the efforts of the modernists
to kill it. Underneath that veneer of
culture Europe is a putrsent mass
of mechanism, sensulism may be, still
we did not originate bolshevism and
sabotage. Of what 'use is a culture
and civilization which will cap these
'growths with the greatest war In his-
tory?
For obvious reasons the United'
States has no foil rooted culture.
Hitherto we have been too busy wrest-
ing a living from the wilderness. But
even at that °I doubt if Europe can
match the thirst for knowledge shown
in our higher schools or ca show a
greater number of students. Granted
that' American education is too often
merely a goosestep, yet it is better
than vacancy. Then too, was not the
public school essentially an American
development?
Of course we owe our culture to Eu-
rope. We realize that and are anxious
to assist our parent when she will lis-
to reason. Why not? Europe has
shown herself a very poor custodian
of her oon fortunes, why should we
cancel the debts, until we are satisfied
that it will be used legitimately,. and
not directly or indirectly in preparing
for more wars? That is the thought'
in the back of the average American's
head. It is poor policy to give a
beggar grub money which you know
will be spent for booze. Until Europe
gives sure signs of returning to the
well known straight andnarrow path
let her stop her propaganda that the
United States is ashylock demanding
his pound of flesh.
