TAKE OUT THE POLITICS l
"Take the politics out of prohibition
enforcement," is the cry of the Na-
tional League of Women Voters, and
at the same time comes the rumor
that all prohibition enforcement
agents will be asked to resign Sept.
15 in order to "clear the decks" and
"enable the treasury department to
institute the new prohibition enforce-
ment organization."
It is apparent that something must
be done for prohibition enforcement,
and it must be done soon. Prohibit-
ion itself, up to this point, seems to
have been successful. But where en-
forcement of the prohibition laws has
been necessary, there has been a sur-
prising, and a disgusting, negligence.
The allegation of the women voters
is undoubtedly correct-politics have
entered into national law enforcement
in a definite sort of a way. And
those politics must be swept out.
There are several ways in which
this'can be accomplished. If Secre-
tary Andrews is really responsible
for the rumor that the wholesale res-
ignation of his agents will be request-
ed Sept. 15, that is a great step in the
right direction. And if Mr. Andrews
has courage, and poer, enogh to
carrycoutrhis program of re-arranging
the enforcement districts along natur-
al, instead of political, lines, thereby
removing the greatest possibility of
the political subordination of the
agents, the feat will have been almost
completed.
The task can then be well finished
by accepting the suggesting of the
women voters that the appointment
and promotion of prohibition enforce-
ment agents be placed on a civil ser-
vice basis. There is absolutely no rea-
son why this suggestion should not be
accepted. In fact, when we consider
the present organization of that most
important branch of our government,
the state department, there seems to
be no logical reason why any govern-
mental appointments of this nature
should be made on any basis other
than that of examinations and qual-
ifications-.
Something must be done, the way
of doing it has been pointed out,-

have the powers that be courage
enough to do it?
APPRECIATIONS
Someone has said that culture isE
the process of acquiring apprecia-
tions. That may not cover the sub-
ject, but it certainly hits an import-
ant phase of it.
One can appreciate all sorts of
things. There are eccentricities of
appreciation just as of conduct and
everything else. Yet there are some
things all of us should learn to ap-
preciate. One of them is music.
Another is nature. Perhaps no
beauties are so often ignored as those
in the natural surroundings. A few
have appreciated them divinely. They
have been great poets, writers. Many
have missed them. Many who have
failed to see the grace of nature at

are pictures everywhere,-and appre-
ciate.r t
The new hospital will be ready in
a month; postpone your attack of
acute appendicitis and give ot a trial;
remember only thirty days to go, hold
everything!
Haven't we enough highwaymen
without giving courses in it and then
on top of that to further encourage
them by offering scholarships?
A few more Cooks and Barbours
and one will wonder what factory the
state constructed buildings represent.
Was it Bill Shakespeare who said,
"All's well that ends the way you
want it to?"
EDITORIAL COMMENT
A LIVING "DEAD LANGUAGE"
(The New York Times)
It will be a surprise to many to
learn that the standard foreign lang-
uage in education is not one of the
living languages, but one that is com-
monly referred to as a "dead lang-
uage"-Latin. The number of stu-
dents of Latin in our schools now
exceeds the total number enrolled in
all the other foreign langauges. And
the number has of late had an "enor-
mous" increase, especially in the Mid-
dle West, despite the fears of those
championing the study of the classics
lest the "practical" studies would, af-
ter the war, drive out the studies of
general education. The American
Classical League, which held its an-
nual meeting in Indianapolis last
week, considers, with good reasons,
that it is doing a patriotic service in
fighting against self-indulgent senti-
mentality on the one hand and selfish
materialistic views of life on the oth-
er, in standing for such training as
the classical disciplines give - the
thing most needed for our American
boys and girls. In this winning cam-
paign the league has the support of
such men as President Coolidge, Chief
Justice Taft, Mr. John W. Davis, Mr.
Hughes, Secretary Hoover, President
Rea and Dean Pound.
It is encouraging to note that there
has also been a strengthening of the
position of classical education in other
countries, such as Great Britain,
France and Italy, since the war. Ev-
ery member of the new British cabinet
is a classically educated man and
most of the members of the French
cabinet have had like training. In
view of this growing vogue of Latin
the Classical League might well take
as its motto an adaptation of the line
from some ancient writer which ae-
scribed certain people who laughed at
Latin words as "dull fools."
THE YOUNG GENTLEMEN OF
HARVARD
(The Chicago Tribune)
The young gentlemen of Harvard
edit a number of publications, one
of them known as the Lampoon and
another as the Crimson. The Lam-
poon, it will be recalled, was recently
barred for a few days from the
mails. When the editors of the Lam-
poon arrived on the playing field the
other day for the annual baseball
game with the editors of the Crim-
son they were greeted by newsboys
selling copies of the Crimson con-
taining a complete account of the vic-
tory of their opponents. "Low-minded
humorists suppressed by Crimson

baseball team" said the headline.
The Lampoon is a funny paper and
therefore its editors became angry.
They marched upn the Crimson of-
fices, flung mud at the building,
broke into the editorial rooms and
started a fight. The police reserves
were summoned.
This is all highly gratifying. We
had feared out this way that the
eastern fountains of learning- were
drying up. We had harbored the-
suspicion that youth in the east was,
if not dead, at least pale and spectre-
thin. We saw decadence where once
had been virility. We remembered
recent intersectional games and we
thought that down east they had too
much blue blood and not enough red.
We were wrong: We sold youth
short. Their football players down
east may not amount to much but
when it comes to fighting editors
they are supreme.

TAST E OLLS
ANTIGONE
Yep, they gave the disputed line to
Antigone, and when she ups an' says
"Oh dearest Haemon, how thy father
wrongs thee!" we quivered all over,
because we allus felt that it was un-
becoming to her dignity to boost her
own stock that way.
At all events, we enjoyed the per-
formance immensely, even if the gent
that took the part of Haemon did try
to cast his voice into a super-dramatic
tone which ruined his enunciation and
our disposition. He wrung his hands
beautifully, 'though, and looked so
haggard that we felt sorry for him.
And the good old chorus- ah us,
sweet creatures! they danced their
sylph-like way into our heart, more or
less, and then sang, or rather chanted
it out. But really, U. Hall auditorium
stage should have been swept off be-
fore they let the dear girls go on and
kneel and sit around in those nice
white dresses.
Well, it was a good show, even if the
patented camp cot did show in the
final scene. It seemed to have been
the best eccyklema (technical term-
probably spelled wrong) available but
they couldn't find two of them, so
they showed Euridice's corpse behind
the main entrance. That was technic-
ally incorrect, but it conveyed the de-
sired information. She was dead, it
seemed. * * *
Add Office Force
To all to whom may come these let-
ters greeting! Be it known to all and
sundry and such others as may be,
that Battling Doug has resigned his
position as office shiek in favor of our
jovial M. E., Thlick Thal. His ap-
pointment is hereby unconditionally
confirmed, and he is seated in state on
the rail by the woman's desk. Ho
hum-now we can go get our hair
curled.

Music, ladies and gentlemen, will
form the basis of our lecture this
morning. In the slide which we are
using to illustrate this all-impoytant
topic in the study of nature, you see
a lady producing music from the in-
strument known as the harp. She's
always harping on the thing, as you
may notice, if you gaze long and fix-
edly at the slide.
Music as a 'part of nature, orig-
inates in the woods and rills of verd-
ant spring-among the rustling leaves
of midsummer-amid the seared corn-
fields and flame colored trees in the
autumn, and in the bare boughs and
icicles of winter. There, that takes
doesn't it?
All of you who have studied your
lessons well know who wrote that
beautiful poem about "Music hath
charms," so we won't bother to tell
you. It's a nice poem, don't you
think? We don't either, but we'll let
that pass. Dear us, we're straying
from our subject which is music in
nature.
Well, there ain't any music in na-
ture that we've ever heard, but pray
do not iet us deter you from seeking
it. There must be some, because we
have a slide of a lady playing a harp
in our collection, so there must be-
there must be-aw, you say it.

Comunique
Tamam:
As I stood near the courthouse,
watching the busy populace, a won-
derful specimen of feminine pulch-
ritude passed by and accidently (?)
dropped her teenie weeny 'kerchief.
I, pro bono publico, did a Sir Gal-
ahad, and recovered the strayed prop-
erty to the eye-opener, and she thank-
ed me. We stood there and discuss-
ed-such thinks as are discussed. A
motorcycle, passing by, blew its Klax-
on. (adv.). The maiden fainted. I
quickly placed my arm around her
and by rubbing her wrists (as in the
movies) I brought her back to con-
sciousness. She kissed me. I sug-
gested we go to the M. C. ('nother
adv.-this is too much, Vee '63) De-
pot and watch the choo-choos.
I'm not going to tell you the rest,
Tamam, but I'm nursing a swollen
cheek.
Yours, for stronger arnica,
-Vee, '63.
* * *
Oh, fireman, save my child!
Tamam.
