"Cave of the Winds," Goat Island,
Canadian Falls Prove Points
Of Interest,
Seventy-seven students arrived back
in Ann Arbor yesterday from the state
reservation at Niagara Falls. The
excursionists report a splendid trip
and perfect weather.
Boarding a special observation car
Saturday afternoon the party took the
famous Scenic Gorge trip, following
the Gorge almost the entire' length, at
its water's edge. They were conveyed
to the American approach Qf the great
Steel Arch Bridge spanning the Ni-
agara River a few hundred feet below
the Falls, and over this remarkable
structure into Canada. As the car
slowly moved over the bridge,, one
of the grandest views of the Amer-
ican and Horseshoe Palls was grad-
ually unfolded. Proceding down the
Canadian side to Queenston the car
crossed the Lewiston Bridge where
the return trip was begun down the
American side through the Gorge.
One of the interesting attractions of
the trip was the Aerial Scenic Railway
spanning the Whirlpool at a height of
150 feet above the raging waters be-
low. Most of the students crossed
over the Whirlpool in the Aero Car re-
suming their journey at the other side
with the rest of the party.
The excursionists visited Goat Is-
land, which 'separated the American

Thomas A. Edison is quoted as say-
ing, "There is something wrong with
the college system. I don't know what
the trouble is: that's not my line. I
can only judge by the results. But
one thing is certain: the present sys-
tem of education ins the colleges does
not train men to think. I am in favor
of the colleges. That is where I gel
some of my best men. I have 60 of
them now, bit they are culled out
2,000. That's a pretty low percent-
age, isn't it?"
Yes, Mr. Edison, it is a low percent-
age. However, in culling the 60 out
of the 2,000, very much depends upon
what tests were made to ascertain the
thinking power of the applicants. If
they were given the famous "Edison
Questionnairre" covering a multi-
tude of widely separated and assort-
ed facts and he was adjudged the best
thinker who returned the greatest
number of correct answers, then the
result was not a thinker but a walk-
ing encyclopdeia. Knowledge does
not consist solely of knowing a little
about a great many things, but rather
in knowing where to find any desired
information. And similiarly, thinking
is not a feat of memory but rather the
use of sources of information to a
creative and intelligent end.
At last after many years of graft
and corruption, the government is wak-
ing up to the fact that Alaska, our
"$50,000,000 ice-box," is being made
the gold mine for the Guggenheim
mining Interests and has been for a
long time, a drain upon the resourc-
es of the American public. This af-
fair might have been hushed up 'and
Washington might s,till be in igndr-
ance of what the big capitalists who
have exploited the resources of the
valuable territory are "putting over,"

Knute Nelson's Death Brings About
Election Which Terminates in
Unusual Campaign
St. Paul, July 6-(By A.P.)-Voters
of Minnesota today are writing the
verdict in the unprecedented contest
involving the selection of a United
States senator in succession to the
late Knute Nelson.
In 3,520 poling precincts ballots are
being marked, determining whether a
supportef of the Harding admnistra-
tion shall go to the senate or if this
state shall throw its complete sena-
torial strength to the Lafollete group.
While there are three candidates,
it is between Gov. J. A. O. Preus, Re-
publican, and a Harding adherent,
and Magnus Johnson, Farmer-Labor-'
ite, and follower of Robert LaFollette,
that the real contest lies.
James A. Carley, state senator and
Democratic choice is the third candi-
date but even his close political
friends counted him out of the race
before the polls opened.
/ Of National Interest~
The election ends a campaign un-
usual in the political annals of the
state. Called specifically to fill the
vacancy Senator Nelson's death cre-
ated, the primary une 18, was mark-
ed by apathetic balloting that attract-
ed only a few more than 300,000 of
the state's 800,000 votes. It had been
expected that Gov. Preus would re-
sign and accept appointment to the
senate bu the chief executive, acting
on an opinion of the State's attorney
general, held such procedure would
be illegal anl his call for the spe-
cial primary and election followed.
Immediately after the primary
Immediately after the primary
there was no apparent change in the
attitude of the average voter, political
spell-binders cast their spells in vain
and indications were that today's elec-
tion would roll around with a repe-
tition of the primary vote in prospect.
Then it appeared that the country
at large was vitally interested in the
outcome-that it viewed it as a test
between the politics of the Harding
administration and things advocated
by the Lafolette bloc.
Defeated Johnson
This national interest, many poli-
ticians say went a long way toward
arousing the voters of the state to the
importance, of the contest and the ex-
pectation early today was that a vote
considerably larger than the primary
poll would be cast today.
In the general election last fall
Minnesota chose as United States Sen-
ator Dr. Henrik Shipstead, a Farmer-
Laborite, giving him a total of 325,372
votes as compared to 241,833 for .Sen-
ator Frank A. Kellogg, Republican.

point viewed the Falls illuminated.-
One has never really looked upon Ni-
agara Falls until he has beheld the1
American. Falls and the Rapids at
night, lifted out of the darkness by a -
light flood of 50,000,000 candle power.-
Under the Fall, in the cavern form-I
ed by the recessed cliff is the cele-
brated "Cave of the Winds" which1
practically the entire party visited
early Sunday morning. Across sturdy1
bridges and platforms the visitors to,
the "Cave of the Winds" were con-
ducted by guides, revealing at almost
every step new wonders and, new
thrills. The Cave, famous the world
over as Niagara's most thrilling ex-I
perience, is 150 feet across, extending
behind the Falls and continuing for1
several hundred feet to the very foot
of the great American Falls. Across
Raibow Bridge the guides led the
party back again to the chelter house7
where they set out for the Maid of;
the Mist trip. From no other place or
point was Niagara's grandeur so well
displayed as from the little boat sail-
ing below the Falls.
The party hiked through Niagara
Glen and from there to Queenston
Heights Park which contains the mon-
ument to General Brock and his tomb.
All along the route Professor J. P.
Rowe, of the University of Montana,
who was in charge of the excursion,
pointed out and explained the points
of interest, the geological formation
and development, and the probable
raet of recession Pf the Falls. The
students took up a small purse to pre-
sent Professor Rowe in token of
their appreciation.

were it not for the presidential visit
to Alaska.
The Morgan-Guggenheim interests
have exerted all of their energies in
competing with the government, rail-
road, and the government has wanton-
ly expended thousands of dollars, not
realizing that they were furthering
the success of the capitalists. The
Guggenheim interests founded the
city of Anchorage nine years ago in-
tending that it should supercede Se-
ward as the capital of Alaska, intend-'
ing at bottom to divert the shipping
traffic to the former, their own cen-

They have likewise -been behind a
movement to consolidate the govern-
ment administration, which would
have left control of Alaskan affairs in
hands which they could easily man-
In view of the fact that this has
been going on for years, with Alaska
as the background for a huge scheme
of corruption, with Washington thous-
ands of miles away and quietly un-
ware' that anything was wrong, it is
a lucky thing that the President in-
cluded Alaska in his itinerary. Per-
haps this was the real reason be-
hind his visit. It is not unlikely. for'
rumors of graft in Alaska have filter-
ed through to sleepy, official Wash-
ington, and Harding, his eyes open,
saw in this a chance to right a great
wrong, or at least expo e it, and
prove to his constituents that he
knows a ftw of the things going on in
this country that many others. are un-
aware of.
It might be helpful for him to take
a little run over to Honolulu some-
time and see how things are getting
along, and then to the Phillippines to
look into the reasons for the political
storm which new centers around
Wood, and which has arrived at the
climax within the last few days, ac-
companied by the resignation of sev-
eral Filipino officials.
The President is the leader of his
country, why shouldn't he travel
around and see for himself just what
it's all about.

Miss Helen Parkhurst of the Chil-
dren's University school, New York
City, will give a series of lectures to
the students in the School of Educa-
tion and to the general public during
the next week beginning Monday,
July 23. Miss Parkhurst has gained
international recognition through her
connection with the "Dalton Labora-
tory Plan" which has attained marked
success in ungradded schools for
crippled boys and in High schools.
Freedom and cooperation are the
two fundamental principles upon
which this plan is based. Miss Park-
hurst asserts that a child is mental-
ly keener, more alert, and capable
when he .is interested and therefore
work in which he is interested should
be allowed to continue without inter-
ruption. Her methods are based on
a laboratory plan in which each child
functiops involuntarily as a member
of a social community.
Miss Parkhurst has recently creat-
ed much interest at Harvard univer-
sity and the University of Wisconsin.
Her first lecture will be at the sec-
ond convocation of students held on
Monday, July 23, in room 208, Tappan
hall, at 4 o'clock. Miss Parkhurst will
give one lecture each day and con-
ference hours will be scheduled
whereby schoolmen and others inter-
ested in the 'Dalton plan can inter-
view her concerning her experiment.
