AFTER A WHILE
Othe has often wondered whether

dest sense really means. The
Igest ties between the present and
past in all institutions of learn-
comes through the structures

after generation of students.

penitentiary. Impeachment of the of-
fice holders belonging to this polit-
ical ring has been threatened through
a petition which is now being circulat-
ed but the dMficulty of such. action
almost prohibits its success. Our im-
peachment statutes have often urged
greater discrimination before taking
such drastic action but cases of this
sort would be more easily solved if
the laws for removal from office were
not so cumbersome and ineffectual.

Dear Doctor Tarik: Something
happened in my fizzix class the other
day which you should certainly hear
how I fooled my prof and all. The
prof asked the class if anyone knew
anything abouP Violet Rays. Gee, but
I put one over on him. I know all
about dat goil, but I wouldn't tell.

marks twenty years that have flew
desprittly by sints that famus day
when Patrick O'Brien, representative
from Bulgaria, and I, singed The De-.
claration. of Appendikitus in the
basement of Buckingham Palace, yes-
sir, that we did. '
Loil citizens I wish to say that the
day the Declaration of Appendikitus
is ruptured will be a sad day for our
onhappy country. Let the situation
be ever so acute', 'operations should
not be resorted to. Bare this in rhind

This plan is by no means a novel
one at the University, but has been
carried out for several years during
summer school with a marked degree
of success. The tennis tourneys have,
in past years, been conducted by Dr.
George A. May and George Moe, and
as many as 50 or 60 entrantsnhave
participated in them. These match-
es have proven to be of much inter-
est and enjoyment to all participants
and the co-operation of the students
again this summer will insure their
being reinstated immediately.
It is also desirous to run off a horse-
shoe pitching contest this summer, if
enough entrants can be received, Any-
one interested should call Hal Gess-
ner at 732.
A Vicious Circle
Signor Mussolini has evidently de-
cided that there is something rotten
in Italy. Each day brings a new edict
for the extirpation of one thing or an-
other. First it is decreed that the
newspapers shall print nothing that
is untrue, or at least nothing that is
unsatisfactory to the government.
Now comes another announcement
that "no games which savor either
openly or secretly of gambling" will
'be permitted. It is a reform niove-
ment very much like the one that
swept over this country after the ex-
citment of war days had subsided.
The pendulum swings back and forth.
War and its immediate aftermath
brings- a desire to escape from the
realities and hardships of existence.
Then comes the morning after with
a brown taste and a desire for reform.
The saddest part of the whole af-
fair is the short memory of the pub-
lic. Wear and the consequences are
soon forgotten. Then comes the
'growth of arrogance, selfishness, and
pride, followed by more wars, more
,disasters, and more sorrows.
The Maine's Commander
Rear Admiral Charles D. Sigsbee,
the third of a great triumvirate of
Spanish-American War naval com-
manders, has passed on to the im-
mortal realm of everlasting fame. As
commander of the ill-fated battleship
Maine and later as' captain of a mer-
cantile ship transformed for use as
a scouting vessel during the strategic
"bottling up" of Cervera's fleet in San-
tiago Bay, he gained renown for his
It was not as a sailor, however, that
Admiral Sigsbee did his greatest ser-
vice for the country. His inventions
for use in deep-sea cruising and for
exploration of the sea bottom are great
sources of good to the government in
time of peace as well as war. Admir-
al Sigsbee was a sailor who knew his
boats and men, as well as the seas on
which he sailed.
Pulling the Trigger
A patrolman in New York saw Wil-
liam Halloran draw a pistol from his
pocket and level it on his temple.
The shot rang out just as the officer
arrived o the spot. Halloran drop-
ped. The patrolman called an ambul-
ance and when doctors arrived on the
scene they found burns on the man's
temple but no bullet hole. The would-
be suicide had inadvertently used a
There is no doubt, however, that
Halloran must have suffered a tense
moment. Having planned to take his
'life, he pulled the trigger and figured
that all was over. It was death for
him just before the moment of realiza-
tion. A weaker person might actually
have been killed by the simple act of
pulirig the trigger. The istate of
,mind, the shot, and the burning of
the powder on his temple were realis-
tic enough to have killed many a man.

We trust that the supervision to be
exercised by the bursar's office will be
more than a perfunctionary audit and
elimination of illegal payments from
funds. Such an audit, it is much to
be regretted, will often be necessary.
There have been rumors and revela-
tions of shady"ldealings in the conduct
of class and campus affairs in the
past that would scarcely pass in day-
Supervision of these accounts by
members of the bursar's staff would
eliminate any dishonesty. but they
should do even more than this. The
amount of money wasted in student
enterprises of various, sorts far ex-
ceeds what is lost through dishonesty.
It is in eliminating this waste that the
business office can do its greatest ser-
The University is to receive two
percent of all receipts in return for
handling the finances of the affairs.
That should be sufficient to pay for
more than perfunctory supervision. It
is only by exercising strict and intel-
ligent supervision that the Univer-
sity employes assigned to the work
can give to the activities the. full
measure of success which should come
out of the plan.

A TENNIS TOURNAMENT I
During the past week an attempt
has been made to start a program of
various summer sports for the, benefit
'of summer school students, this pro-
gram to include all sports adapted to
tjais time of the year, such as tennis,
horseshoe and indoor baseball. As yet
little interest has been shown among
the student body and unless more en-
trants are received within the next
few days the plan will have -to be
abandoned, according to Dr. George
A. May of the department of physical

Because of the length of time required
to run off a long series of such events,
the first round of matches must be
played early next week. Prizes will
be awarded to the winners in both
events, the entrance to which can be
made at Moe's Sport Shop, at 711

fee of 20 cents will be charged each
entrant to provide for the prizes sinle

A VING kept silence so long, Paris permits us at last to partake in her secret
of what will be worn this Autumn. She gives us only a hint, it is true, but
at least, she raises the curtain a bit to reveal the fascinating mysteries behind it.
The silhouette of a gown. The flare of a sleeve. The cut of a collar, or its ab-
scence-the first of the new Paris fashions awaits a call from you! Their French
accent is unmistakeable,
