erty on which our country was sup-
posedly founded.
A pureubattle of principle would
be impossible while party strength in
the 'country is so great, but the com-
ing election would afford an oppor-
tunity for those voters who believe in
the theory of personal liberty to up-
hold their views insofar as breaking
away from the party with which they
are affiliated is concerned, and to cast
their votes for the candidate who
will back the principle which they
favor, or better, a majority of the
principles which they favor, during
the four years of administration.
The present campaign will serve to
disprove most beliefs as to the con-
siste cy of party principles if the
resolution calling for a revision of the
Volstead Act, for it was during the
last Democratic administration that
Prohibition was made a nation-wide
reality. Now the possibility is very
great that that party will reverse its
principles to cater to those whose
votes seem to hang in the balance.
Whatever the issues may be, so
long as they are strong enough in
thenaselves to draw votes for the canr
didiate regardless of the party, it will
be the first step toward an intelligent-
ly governed republic which must be
a government of the people, by the
people, for the people.
Newspaperdom, like almost e,
other profession, has witnessed the
rapid rise of women within its ranks

With the opening of the Summer
Session, the campus again takes life
after a brief week of rest. But the
people who form the student body
during the summer are a vastly dif-
ferent crowd than that group which
roams the campus during the regular
academic year. They are, gen-
erally speaking, here for a little
generally speaking, here for a little
different purpose than are those who
come during the regular term.
A very large percentage of those en-
rolled for work during the summer
are graduates either of the University
or from the various other colleges and
universities in the country who have
been occupied for a year or more in
some profession. They have been out
of school long enough to realize more
fully the seriousness, of life and to
comprehend the value of an educa-
tion; consequently they are here for
intensive study in order to fill out an
already well developed outlook on
These people who will be in school
this summer will have an influence
over those undergraduates who are in
attendance which should be valuable
in developing a more conservative and
more serious attitude in the under-
graduate toward their education.
But the benefit will not all be de-
rived by the younger students because
they in turn will have some effect
upon the older people. Theirs will
be the influence of youth upon conver-
vatism and staid dignity developed by
an occupation other than going to
school. It should- serve to keep the
older scholars aware of life as it is
outside of their academic interests so
that they will not be confined to a line
too narrow to allow the happiness to
which all are entitled.
The acquaintances and associations
made during the Summer Session
therefore become a part of the pro-
gram outlined to broaden the educa-
tion which has already been started.
It is a program which includes enter-
tainment of various kinds along with
the work of the class room, and which
Includes the fundamentals of a com-
plete liberal education. Those who
are in attendance are indeed fortunate
in having placed at their disposal se
many ropportunities which may have
a lasting influence upon their lives,
Present indications point toward
the early nomination of Gov. Al Smith,
of New York, as the Democratic
candidate for president, and the adop-
tion of a "wet" plank in the party
platform in the hope of bringing vic-
tory to the Democratic party at the
polls in November.
In such an event there would be
likely to result in a more or less pro-
nounced split in both parties and the
presidential election might evolve into
a four-sided battle-the Democrats
and the Republicans fighting across
the table one way and the "wets"
and the "drys" occupying the other
two sides of the table. All in all a
very complicated battle would ensue
in which party principles might or
might not be forgotten as the cam-
paigns develop. It would be a contest
for supremacy ether-of the bonds of
a party or the theory of personal lib-

Some observers have gone so far as
to express alarm at'the mark women
have made and are making in the
field of journalism. It is therefore
with interest that one hears that the
head of the school of journalism at
the University of Iowa, in his address
recently before the biennial conven-
tion of the General Federation of
Women's clubs, contended that there
is no cause for alarm as far as "the
petticoat press" is concerned.
Women are not attempting to mono-
polize the field of journalism, but rath
er they are keeping step with the men
working frequently with little sex con
sciousness, the Iowa man averred
And while it is rather foolish to think
that women would or could monopoliz
the field of journalism, he is right in
stating that they must work withou
sex consciousness. That is one of th
main contentions of modern instruc
tors and newspaper men themselves
and one which women are fast com
ing to realize. It has been said tha
women succeed in journalism nowa
days only insofar as they forget thei
sex self, and this may account for th
more important part they are taking
Training, too, is being given mor
emphasis and more consideration, bot
with 'men as well as women, tha
ever before. College trained gradu
ates are no longed disregarded, bu
are often in demand. One of th
women graduates of a year ago thi
June-from the journalism departmen
of the University of Michigan joine
the editorial staff of a' large Pitts
burgh newspaper and in less thana
year became women's editor witha
high salary. her case was not an ex
ception, rather an indication of o
what women are doing in the field o
journalism. ,
Looking at the question in anothe
way, the day when newspaper wor
was considered a degrading and alto
gether too difficult ,professon fo
women, is a thing of the past. Thi
can be attributed to the fact thatno
only have types of newspaper me
and women changed, but newspaper
themselves have changed as well. So
cial amelioration rather than politic
have become their principal interest
Editors are sensitive to the wants o
the reader and cater to that wan
Inasmuch as women are keenly in
terested in people and their activities
since woman is essentially a socia
being, there is a very definite par
for her to play in journalistic profes
sions. And she is playing that pai
more readily and more efficiently no
than ever before.
Since the first air mail line wa
established between New York an
Washington in 1918, the system ha
been enlarged so as to include sixty
three of the most important commer
cial cities in the United States. Ail
mail pilots fly more than 22,000 mile
each day and carry nearly 6,00
pounds of mail.
During the first few months of it
existence, the air mail service wa
looked upon as a -mere novelty, an
a chance for more accidents amon
those men who would pilot the planes
but since it has so increased the ra
pidity of mail service it has becom
almost invaluable to present day busi
ness even though it is yet in th
process of development.

For two whole weeks we have been
assiduously studying a brand new
book on how to conduct a humor col-
umn. But as complete as the little
volume was, there was nothing in the
contents that would teach a fellow
anything funny about a summer ses-
sion. At least nothing funnier tha
the people who attend. r
The title page of the book see-
tion in the July Harpers pictures
a debonair youth seated against a
tree to which a sign is appended,
"Beware the Bull."
Oh, well, truth in advertising
implies honesty in manufacture.

An embarrassing social situation of
some significance has come to the at-
tention of Rolls Social Service Bu-
reau. A certain fair-haired instructor
in the public speaking department and
a certain member of the University
hospital staff drive the same colored
cars. As a result, frequent unfortu-
nate situations arise for the former,
due to the maneuvers of the latter.
After extensive judicial preponder-
ance, Rolls suggests that the latter
of the two individuals paint his car
a distinctive red. For further grue-
some details, see Carl Brandt.
