Well, to get down to business-;
and I suppose you never thought I
would after you read yesterday's
column, did you? (that makes sense
if you have time to analyse it)-
let me see, let me see. Yesterday's
paper brought us the news that-
I'll quote the headline:
* * *
That ought to be quite interest-
ing, to my way of thinking. But
just why the repertory group, with
little or no knowledge of modern
surgery as it is practiced today,
should atempt to perform such a
feat on three living members of
their group is not quite clear to me.,
The three musketeers in question
are Messrs. Fitzgerald, Moyer and
Huber--all very fine men. I know
Moyer personally and it's a shame
that such a big fine fellow must
submit to such an indignity. If I
were he I shouldn't allow any rep-
ertory group-I don't care if it con-
tained John Barrymore, Mary Gar-
den and El Brendel-to open me
up. NO, sir. And if I find time I'm
going to see that this silly thing
is nipped in the bud. If it hasn't
any bud I'll find some other place.
* * *
Speaking of buds, the trees on
the campus are already beginning
to shed their leaves and it comes as
a sort of shock-not quite like an
electric shock which can sometimes
be quite severe, especially during
a thunderstorm although we have
not had many here lately-it comes
as a shock when you realize that
the end of the summer is but a
scant three weeks distant. And a
scant three weeks is not to be tol-
erated, let me tell you. No wonder
they say the modern generation is
going to the dogs. Volumes have
been written on the subject, mil-
lions of heated words have come
from wiser heads than yours or
mine and what has come of it? I
shall repeat the question: WHAT
has become if it? Nothing, friends,
nothing-simply because the Spir-
it of Modern Youth, in its own im-
petuous way, has paid scant heed

And as a result I have been dele-
gated to fill this void. Girls and
boys, allow me to introduce to you
Grandmother Whoofle who up to
this time has been hiding her tal-
ents in the Business Department.

Since reviews should be in order
I am going to attempt to impress
upon your minds the value of a
certain little volume bound in i
beautiful yellow-orange paper, none
other than the Summer Student
and Faculty Directory.
We will start by a discussion of
the plot. The author who is as yet
unknown in the literary world is
a very talented young chap but in
this, his first and last attempt, al-
though he has an excellent plot,
there are a few too many charac-
ters. In fact, it is quite difficult tof
keep them all straight. There are
however, many lines in it that will
probably become so famous that
they will be handed down through!
the ages-for instance, his opening 1
words-"In the compilation of this
directory great care has been taken
to reduce the number of errors to
a minimum. A large majority of
the mistakes which have crept in
are due to the illegible information i
furnished by the students them-
selves." I ask you, have ever seen
anything that shows clearer insight
into hifman character than that
never-to-be-forgotten statement.
Another wonderful bit occurs in the
last chapter called "The Addenda"
under part "D" "Devine, Marguito
B. 1049! Olivia 2-2945" The line
is truely beautiful but there is some
doubt in my mind as to the mean-'
ing. Perhaps if I should ever have
the pleasure of meeting the he, she,
or it designated here the emphasis
after the 1049 might be explained.
I will say, however, that I enjoy-
ed the whole thing thoroughly even
though I didn't read it that way
and think that every one of you r
should own a copy, (adv.) even
though it is a little late in the sea-
son to obtain one.I

barely recovered from the horror
and the destruction of the recent
bloody turmoil, would so blindly
conduct their affairs as to lead
them into another? Can it be pos-
sible that the public officers, the
statesmen, the diplomats, charged
.with the safe-guarding of the wel-
fare and happiness of the citizens
of their states, will create and fur-
ther policies that will lead to such
a result? This recognized author-
ity, Professor Burns, contends that
it is.:
According to him, the situation
in which we find ourselves today is
directly parallel to that of 1909
when the conditions existed which
finally led up to Servajevo. He
points to the steady continuance of
preparations for war, to the alli-
ances, secret and otherwise, which
are being made, to the spirit of ri-
valry and jealousy between nations.
France, Italy, Germany and some
of the smaller European nations
insist upon maintaining rather
large standing armies. It has been
estimated that a third of the men
in these countries are in uniform.
Add to this the fact that military
disciplining and training is a part
of their educational program, that
an admiral or a general is listened
to with more respect and enthu-
siasm than any statesman or lec-
turer, that greed for land and mon-
ey is still a basic principle of their
politics, and we find small reasonj
for wonder that they are militar-
istic in their attitudes and ideals.
This is not all intended to be de-
rogatory, for it must be realized
that those countries are crowded
against each other, nurtured in a'
traditional atmosphere of suspicion
and distrust and hostility, and,
most important of all, in direct,
commercial competition with one1
another. There is nothing of the
isolation, and accompanying lack of
worry about what the other units
of civilization are doing, in this
country, that is found in Canada
and Australia, in Japan, and even
in England. However, even in these
we find the militarists favored by
army training in schools, by the
wholesale production of arma-
ments, by experimentations in des-
tructive weapons of war, by organ-
izations created for the purpose of
promoting and disseminating war
And when we consider all this,
it must be admitted that the case
is strongly in favor of the conten-:

Perhaps you can't teach some

Certified laboratory tests
prove that the Dayton Steel
