The suggestion has been made in
the British parliament that a beer tax
be laid to pay the subsidy which Pre-
mier Baldwin recently promised' to

Most of the beer in every country
-that does not have prohibition-is
consumed by the lower classes, the,
working men. Miners are usually
considered ; as unusually larger con-'
sumers of this commodity. And it
wouldsundoubtedly be the mriners and
their fellow workmen in other indus-
tries who would be paying the miner's
salaries if this tax should be approved.
Of course the tax will not be ap-
proved by parliament, but the mere
fact that it was suggested sufficiently'
points out the fact that Premier Bald-
win's settlement, , which looked all
right at first, is not really allthat
first appearances warranted it to be.

President Coolidge has announced1
that his administration will strive to
accomplish three objectives during
the coming year,-the solution of the
transportation }problem, the formula-
tion of an agricultural ,polcy, and tax
reduction.. Of the latter, definite in-
formation has already been released,
concerning the former, the President
lias just made.known his ideas.
President Coolidge believes that the
best and only permanent' way in which
the transportation problem can be
settled, and thee railroad rate struc-
ture reorgaitized so as to satisfy agri-
culture, industry and commerce, and
the carriers themselves is by con-
solidation into a few great systems.
He believes that under the present
system, the weakroads become weaker,
and the strong become stronger, and
the country as . whole suffers as a
conseqWence. Surely, under the pres-
ent order, competition, is hardly. a
stimulus to better and more econom-
ical transportation, rather it merely
forces the nation to support lines
that it could well do without, or use as
subsidiary lines, at less expense.
By consolidation, and by keeping
the railroads under strict government
surveillance, to prevent their taking
advantage of the new order of things,
the roads could become specialized
carriers as to certain sections of the
c ountry. Instead of two roads run-
ning between two points, carrying half
loads and giving poor service, there
would be one road carrying all the
commerce between the two points, and
giving the shippers served the best
service possible in relation to the ton-
nage of the region.
A more or less complete govern-
ment control, to prevent the carriers
from taking advantage of this monop-
oly, would, of course, be necessary,
but considering the fact that the roads
are under considerable control now,
exercised thirugh the interstate
Commerce commission, this step would
not involve a great deal.
That our transportation system
needs revising is certain, and this plan
sounds as good as any other, if not
better. Doubtless the President will
not promote such an action until the
advice of experts clearly advises it,
and he no doubt has access to all the
plans of solving our transportation
problem that have been forwarded iii
recent years. He and his aides can
be expected to know the ground thor-
oughly before they take action of any
Mr. Coolidge has done wonders with'
his program of tax reduction. If h
can approach that success in his so-
lution of the transportation p'uzzle,
the nation will be satisfied.

The Williamstown institute of poli- l
tics, now in annual session, is hap-r
pily something more-or should one t
have said less?-than a rostrum for
merely academic deliberation. TheI
problems discussed there, while not I
sensationally explosive, dohat mo-
ments kindle passions that seem
quite human. - A stirring little man-<
ifestation along this line occurredt
between Senator Antonio Cippico ofa
Italy and'Professor Edward M. East,1
specialist in plant morphology at Har-.1
vard. ]
Senator Cippico had told an audi-
ence ot 200 scientists, political econ-
omists 'and' statesmen that Italy's
most ominous potential problem ' is
over-population. The Mussolini gov-
ernment, he said, being himself a
supporter of that regime), would like
to avoid the "cruel necessity of war,'"
but to escape that harsh alternative
Italy must be given room for "pacific
expansion." Briefly, Italy must be al-
lowed to send her surplus population
to America or build a larger colonial
empire than she controls at present.
In the course of his lecture Signor
Cippico indignantly rejected the sug-
gestion of birth - rate control. He
branded as infamous the whole Mal-
thus doctrine. He asserted he and his
countrymen are proud of their highly
civilized humanity. They would re-
tuse to listen to "apostles of infanti-
cide," whose preachings he denounced
as contrary to all human dignity.
Dr. East, a lecturer at the institute
on "Agriculture and Population In-
crease," came back at the Italian with
unkind words. While conceding that
Italy may have been tricked out of
adequate territorial acquisitions at
the peace donference, he denied that
new clonies would help a poor na-
tion stricken with a "reproduction
talent."And the Harvard savant em-
phatically declared America-or any
other civilized country-couldn't be
expected to receive the surplus dregs
of Italy's population. The half mil-
lion undesirables that Italy produces
for export each year should, thinks
Dr. East, be altogether eliminated by,
a process of enforced neo-Malthusian-
The proud Italian refused to reply
to Dr. East. It would have meant low-
ering himself to do so,- he said. But
silence, alas, won't help clear up the
problem. Italy's grim dilemma, from
Signor Cippico's ' point of view, lies
Ibetween the cruel necessity of' war
and colonial expansion. We haven't
seen, however, that the vast territory
of Tripoli, so close at hand, has as
much as begun absorbing any of
Italy's population surplus. Is it not
possible for the Mussolini dictatorship
to direct some of the country's swarm-
ing millions toward the Tripolitan
coast before casting about for further
colonial plums?
If Dr. East is right, on the other
hand, Italy's choice would seem to be
between war and Malthus, and when
the Italian: senator shuddered with
horror at birth control he seemed to
close his eyes to the possibility that
the clooded Mnnalthritan renmdv

'amie, m'deah:
Egad, old chappie, have you noticed
how rawther elevated chapeau they
are becoming over in the "Ed" col-
litch? Why, it's .fiabergasting almost'
beyond words or comprehension as
the case may be or what have you.
We respect our worthies, the seniors.
I hope anyway, in our college. And
it is thus in all colleges, save perhaps
the law school. But, ach sapristi, to
think things should evolute to the
present trend. Great day in the after-
noon! Did you see it? Right in the
most wonderful news conveyor of
higher educational institutions. You
see it was similar to the following: I
picked up the alleged G. C. D. and
perused it after my usual fashion,
leapingover attypo here and there and
disregarding the murdered standards
of diction when lo! high and interme-
diate, right on page four of issue 39
my eyes stumbled and precipitated on
the Daily Official Bulletin. Great au-
thor of Ivanhoe! Something seemed
lacking as I read two certain captions
which are the causes of this elongated
promulgation. They were announce-
ments, to be certain, but where were
the glorious costumes, the pages, the
trumpets and the waiting throngs? 1
did not see the emperor's messenger
step forth to read the kingly bull, but
here it was, printed in cold crude
lead, and just as Claude had set it
among a group of ads and other neces-
sary but vulgar newspaper impedi-
ments. What the captions said, tc
make a lengthy narrative brief, wat

But Tamie, I may have been wrong
all the time. I had another thought

might be another meaning. I wat
