.is camp, sponsored by the student
ganization, annually gives several
ndred poor boys ten days of real
map life, the healthiest, cleanest,

ning.this camp, the S. C. A. is do-

ys from the hot, smoky industrial
jes of Michigan. And it is doing a,

roday the S. C. A. is holding its
nual summer tag day for the Fresh
r camp. It asks the people of the
mpus for $400. It has already se-
red $1,600 from the students of
e regular session, and raised almost

,mpus this summer will give 25
ants for a tag today, the camp will

y amount. There's an infinite
nount of satisfection in knowing

little bit better. Don't you want

inevitable warfare. '
In his address to the graduatingb
class at the Annapolis Naval Aced-
emy, President Coolidge took occa-
sion to emphasize one important
fact. In denouncing a policy of ex-
cessive armament as a guaranty of}
national security, he declared that no
country in the history of the world
ever was impregnable because of a
great military establishment. He add-
ed that he could see no reason why
the United States should believe it-
self to be an exception.
The President made it quite plain
that he did not seek to convey to the
nlepnb.ers of the class the thought
that, in what he -sees as an advancedt
era in the world's attitude against ag-
gressive warfare, their occupation,
like Othello's, is gone. He assured
them that the American Navy, or-
ganized for peace, will deceive, and
for some time continue to receive, ade-
quate support. But he made it plain
that, in his opinion, the wiser course
for America is one which has for its
aim the further limitation of military
preparation.
It may not at once appear how
those ostensibly engaged in activities
nominally warlike ,can iden-ify them-
selves, in such an organization, as the
agents and , missionaries of peace.
But the President made it plain how
the %men whom he addressed can have
an important part in that work. This
is by seeking to promote friendship
and accord, rather than by being the
fomenters of hatred and discord. If,
there is a psychology of war, then
reasonably there may. be said to. be a
psychology of peace. What he had
to say was perhaps directed as much,
to officers of higher rank as to the
midshipmen who there renewed their
obligation of fealty to the Nation and
its colors. Speaking as he described
himself, "as one who' is responsible.
not only for our national defense, but
likewise our friendly relations with
other peoples and our title to the
good opinion of the world," he express-

caters to students, and teed up a ball.
S'ock! went the driver against the
ball, and lazily we watched it drift out
of sight up the fairway. When we
overtook it, the ball lay a nice mashie
pitch from the green, so we grasped
our mashie and pitched it. Up she
went, and down, right on the edge of
the green. But did it stop? No. It
bounded as though it had hit con-
crete, and finally stopped 50 yards
beyond the rock-bound green. We
pursued it, and after many futile ef-
forts, .holed out in something like
seven. That made us mad, so on the
next hole when we went into the
rough on our dirve, we took a mashie
and whaled the ball out, figuring to
land about halfway to the green andj
roll to a nice lie. We landed where
we had figured, but instead of roll-
ing, the ball rose up again and sailedI
complacently clear over the green and
into a ditch two or three hundred
yards farther on. We made that hole
in six.'
On the next hole we reached a point
where a high pitch was needed, and
figured to /take a little turf with our
iron shot. Accordingly we swung,
but as the club touched behind the
ball preparatory to taking the requir-
ed amount of turf, it bounded up,
topped the ball, and sent it miserably
rolling down the fairway. That was
enbugh. We could have just as much
I fun playing on the pavement in front
of our house, we figured,, so we went
back and told the gent that he could
keep the 75 cents change that we
felt we had coming from, the half
dollar we had paid, and went home.

ed the blief that the occasion will sel-
dom arise, when those connected with
the navy would be justified, either
directly or by inference, in asserting
that "other special powers are arm-
ing against us, and by arousing na-
tional suspicion and hatred, attempt
to cause us to arm against them."
The President imposed upon the
men before him, though they find
themselves especially equipped and
fitted to undertake the military de-
fense of the Nation, a somewhat more
serious duty. That is the duty of cit-
izenship. That obligation is one which
every American assumes, and in its
performance it makes little difference
what may be his calling, his social
position, or his individual or official
status. As the President so wisely
observed, "Under our institutions each
individual is born to soverignty."
render service. As the distinguished
speaker put it, "The greatest place of
command is really the place of ob-
edience, and the greatest place of hon-
or is really the place of service."
This, then, is the great adventure
in preparedness. It' is, essentially,
preparedness. for peace, not for war.
Whether the recruit in this great
army marches forth from academy or.
university to the strains of martial
music, or goes forth inconspicuously
to take his place in the ranks of those
: who hope to have some part in the
work of the world, he may rest as-
sured, even if when equipped to wage
righteous war, he sees no prospect
that there will be a bugle call to ac-
tion, that his occupation is not go.ne.
He may, without apology, acknowl-
edge himself a dignified color bearer
in that great army enlisted in the
cause of honorable peace.

'The staff of 0. 0. D. (as the point
edit inan calls this illustrious sheet)
was going to have a picnic tonight,
but now they ain't, ah isn't that nice?
Now they'll think they missed some-
thing good. Well, probably they did.
Picnics, although not the specific
topic of today's dissertation, should
come in for their share of remarks.
Primarily .a picnic is a cross be-
tween a roughing it expedition and a
buffet lunch. Be that as it may, the
success of a picnic depends on those
who are attending it. Of course, with
a group like O.O.D., nothing could be-
sweeter than a good old picnic with
sandy sandwiches, over or under done
hot dogs, toasted rolls well burned,
and well glassed olives. Oh, nothing
at all.
But what we started out to talk
about was rain, the weather always
being such an interesting topic. R-ain
is all right in its way, and we have
been told. on good authority that 'a
cubic foot of it weighs 60 odd pounds,
and if you don't believe it, go out
some time and cut off a cubic foot
,and weigh it. But that's not what we
started to say. We've forgotten that
anyhow, so we'll draw to a close about
now.
Nature Study 147c, Lecture No. 3.
Today, little dears, we will discuss
human nature, one of the most import-
ant of the natures. All in due time
we will take up good nature and de-
nature and back-to-nature, but for to-
day, human nature must suffice.
In the first place, human nature is
never twice the ;same. -It is always
different, and it should be your de-
light in this course to learn all of its
differences. Try to do it. -'We never
have, and if we ever find anyone
who does, we shall slay he, she or it
as the case may be before they spoil
all the fun in life.
But what we started to say was that
human nature is hard to understand.
Letter writing, for example. When a
human is lonely or sad or sick or has
just busted his last pint, that human
will write letters-to anyone, almost;
but the moment that human feels
chipper and peppy and good and lazy
and generally contented, that human
wouldn't Write a letter for love nor
money (the latter rule does not ap-
ply to college students).
And the funny things is that the
person at the other end of the letter
will worry like a fool on hearing
nothing, and will think all's well when
the mail pours in.
Tamam.
