ISN'T IT A mOB SPIRITI
From all appearances, between a
million" ad .a million and a quarter
miners In Great Britain will go on
strike July 31. That is, they will go
on strike if the miners in all quarters
are' willing to accept the order of the
executive committee .of the miners'
federation to terminate the existing
agreemnent under which they are now
Probably a large majority of the
miners will go on strike, strike be-
cause they realize that by so doing
they wil tie up, to a large extent, the
Industrial and marine activity of a
great nation. And because they have
it in their power to do this, they
probably feel certain that a strike at
the present time will be successful.
But what are the odds against It,
and who will really be the ultimate
oser by such an action?.
According to reports, the miners'
federation of Great Britain has not
nearly the financial stability of the
American miners' organization,-they
10 not build up huge surplusses in or-
ier that they may strike comfortably.
When the American mine workers
itrike, it is usually those same work-
r's and their fellow workers in oth-
r fields that really suffer as a con-
aewnce, despite the compensation
hat the strikers receive from the un-
ons. The mine operators, though
hey nay lose heavily, can usually
tand those losses much easier than
,an the individual laborers, most of
Whom ie from hand to mouth. And
f the operators lose too heavily, the
aurden falls back upon the laborers,
or the operation of the mines after
he secession of the strike is impair-
d in proportion to the losses of the
In a strike of thi kind, the strik-
rs' are allays the ultimate losers;
he English miners, with their lack of
xtensive union support, will feel the
oss more keenly than do Americans
A the same predicament. The oper-
tors know what they are willing to
rant, and they can usually afford to
orce their schedules upon their
vorkers, after a sufficient period of
lime and in the interim the public is
nade to suffer.
There have been strikes and strikes
*t only in a few isolated cases have
he strikers succeeded entirely in se-
uring their demands, and in almost
svery case they have suffered to a
reater or less extent. There is a
>etter and safer way of settling labor
lisputes-by government arbitration.
ill the men who have allowed labor
inions to rule their actions in the
>ast never realize that the govern-
nent is more interested in their wel-
are than are the labor bosses, that
he welfare of the laborer is largely
he welfare of the nation? After all,
his is their government, and despite'
,y charges that they may have to
nake 4gainst it, the chances are that y
t will'stand a 'great deal more inves-..
lgation, than many of the labor un-..
(The New York Times)
One of the penalties of fame is hon-
orary membership.' Three eminent
culprits, Sir James Barrie, Mr. Kipl-
ing,. Lord Balfor, were brought be-
fore the Stationers' company the oth-
er day and made honorary Freemen
and Liverymen thereof. There was the-
usual number of other "disting-uish-
ed guests" in the "historic Stationers'
Itall." These shows and ceremonies
of the old London companies are al-
ways "quaint." . We ,hope the lunch-
eon was good, fo' the guests may have
had a feeling that the Worshipful
Master of the Stationers was a little
too much inclined to be statioary
when he got on his feet-which was
often. Sir James Barrie's speeches
are always received with rapture.
Doubtless he gives his hearers what
they expect and want. and it would
be churlish to say that his everlastilg
puck-arielization is likely to become
a little wearisqme.
From the sportive "master of hard
facts" we take one home in a box.
England puts the accent on the first
syllable of "Balfour," S'cotland on the
last. Staggering under the weight of
the Empire a4nd the Worshipful Mas-
ter's compliments, from whkh the
fields of Sussex, Drake and the
"Night Mail," Private Mulvaney and
even the "Recessional" didn't escape,
Mr. Kipling was hardly at his hap-
piest. To his peroration on "Litera-
ture," ancient Rudyardites may prefer
his more characteristic remarks on
the paper trade: "When we had kill-
ed the fatted calf and the unfatted
calf and the calf unborn to make vel-
lum we tore the very rags off the
backs of beggars and we ground them
and we pulped then to make more
Lord Balfour, who is seldom able
to keep out of office and must now be
an honorary member of societies and
companies innumerable, was detached,
ironical and critical. He had no
claim, like the other two Liverymen,
for honors based on literary efforts.
His writings were not of a kind to
be read or applauded .generally:
All of you here are admirers of
.the other gentlement who have re-
ceived the great honor of being en-
rolled in your company, and inas-
much as ev.ry admirer is a poten-
tial critic, everybody here may have
some reflections to make other than
that of pure laudation of the works
of my friends. I am quite safe from
all that. There is possibly one indi-
vidual in the room who may have
glanced at some of my lucubrations,
and I have no doubt that if he did
so he would find plenty to criticize,
But with regard to the great body of
friends whom I am addressing, I am
well aware that, at all events so far
as anything I have written is con-
cerned, they are quite prepared to
admire at a rspectful distance, arm-
ed with complete ignorance of the
subject with which they have to
deal. I feel protected by those
"Arthur" couldn't resist the chance
gracefully to gibe the respectable and
the distinguished luncheoners, whose
is but little study on "A defense of
Philosophic Doubt" and "The Founda-
tions of Belief." The "one individual
in the room" was Dean Inge, who,
made a speech not reported in The,
London Times. Neither was Lord Al-
lenby's. We could have spared Bar-
rie's speech and the Worshipful Mas-
ter's series for those unrecorded two.
COST AND EFFICIENCY IN PACIFI-
(The Detroit Free Press)
Figures recently received from Gen-
eva carry the information that the
total expenses of the League of Na-
tions in 1925 will be $4,371,963. They
are said to have been furnished by
the league's -secretary-general, and
thus have indications of authenticity.
They are published in this country, it
is explained,.because some controversy
has been carried on here regarding the
expense of the league and are intended
to disprove the allegation that it is
J costing great sums to carry it along.
Supports of the league are hailing
the figures as proof that it is econo-
mically managed. Total expenses for
a year,,one of them declares, are less
than the cost of one modern torpedo
boat destroyer. Senator 3ora h has
not been heard from on the subject,
but it's a fair guess that when he
does comment, he will say that the
sight of one modern torpedo boat de-
stroyer plunging its way over the
sands of north Afrrica would probably.

Peat Boy is up on his ear as a
result of the letter of Vee '63 in yes-
terday's issue. He scorns to answer it,
but between ourselves we feel that he
fears Vee's pointed tongue. We were
going to say forked tongue, but that
means something different. Peat Bog
is a great swimmer and conversation-
alist, but we place no stock in his
fearless indomitability on the printed

Today's Topic: Bobbed Hair.
To our inexperienced eye, bobbed
hair is just as good as long hair and
vice versa. We are told, however, that
one is better than the other, and also
vice versa. This distintion, we feel,
should be made only after many fac-
tors have been taken in consideration.
For example: Who would think of
sitting quietly at Granny's knee and
listen to her tell of the "good old
days" knowing at the time that her
hair was neatly sheared in the Latest
Among the younger set, we feel that
it is largely a matter of choice. Our
favorite movie actres'ses vary consid-
erably on the subject. Alla Nazimo-
va is bobbed. So is Pola Negri, but
the actress who holds our interest
chiefly because of her, poise and dig-
nity is Alice Terry, end even her wig
isn't bobbed. Having established
nothing by these lines, we shall turn
the whole affair over to brother Credo
and have done with it. We suggest
the question:~ "If your hair wasn't
bobbed, would you like it long?" and
Nature's Study 147s-Lecture No. 6
Today, ladies and gentlement, we
shall discuss the nasturtium. This
is a flower quite common to flower
boxes in the greater United States.
Why "greater," we do not know. Use
your own judgment as to that.
The nasturtium is oie of mankind's
greatest friends among the flowers. We
don't know why, but it must be for
everything in nature is one of man-
kind's greatest friends. It's a pretty
flower, too, with a long tail like a
kite on it to keep it steady in the
wind. It is said that the ancients
used the nasturtium as a sort of
weather vane, but we can't guarantee
the veracity of that statement.
At all events we are sure that the
nasturtium is a flower-at least we
think it is. G'wan home-the uncer-
tainty of this lecture Is driving us to
drink, and we want to get to where
there is one.
The other day we received an invita-
tion and an insult. We appreciated the
former until we heard the latter.
A gent was inviting us down to his
home for a week-end. Now we haven't
been to our own home for more than
two years, and the mere mention of a
'home makes us feel inclined to weep
on the most convenient shoulder. Some
day we shall have a home of our own,
but that is another story (line for
those desiring to shoot us forms on the
As we were saying this geit invi-
ed us down for the week-end, and
just as we were about to fall on his
neck and sob a friend of his says:
"Do you think your mother will have
room for him?" "Oh yes," says the
gent, "She's not a bit particular.'
That made us so mad that we womidn't
go. Invitations will be considered at

"At the end of the road"-appro-
Having eaten 4,962 breakfasts in
Ann Arbor since the opening of the
Summer. session, we feel that we are
in a position to agree with the Detroit
Free Press editorialist when he says,
"One of life's mysteries is how can-
talopues can bat around .208 and still
retain a following.
