the child. She should be able to refer to arschool
or city psychiatrist, who could confer with her
and the parents to advise treatment for the child,
whether the maladjustment has originated in tb,1
home, in inability to get along with playmates,
or inability to do good school work.
As the child progresses in school, assemblies or
classes should be devoted to rules for mental
health, and, although expert opinions on them
vary,* certain ones are generally acceptable.
Thus, each person needs to know his capacities,
so that he may seek to fulfill them but not to
aim beyond them. If they are less than he would
like to have, he needs to develop an acceptance
of them.
Again, one should worry no more than he can
help. Hard as this sounds to the chronic worrier,
it is more a matter of habit than is ordinarily
supposed, and it is possible to deny as well as
to cultivate it. Presented a situation, one should
face it, analyze it and decide a course of action
and then not repent. Chronic regret or "con-
science" is often a prodroming of neurosis or
When a child thus trained leaves school, he
will be better prepared to face strains without
breakdown, to recognize symptoms of mental dis-
turbance and seek out a p'operly trained physi-
cian to treat him, and, finally, he will be prepared
to give his children a better beginning and, thus,
a better course in life.

Thoughts On Far-Eastern War
(From Chicago Daily News)
CHINA WILL FIGHT-is fighting now. That
much seems clear. And Japan cannot back
down. The war is on. For how long? Who can
say? Months, assuredly; perhaps years. China is
a vast country, and if it resists with any skill at
all it cannot be crushed or conquered quickly.
Meanwhile what will Russia do? It is vaguely
threatened by Germany in Europe, and it will not
care to risk having to fight on two widely sep-
arated fronts at once. Moreover, Stalin has been
executing some of his best generals and tech-
nicians. But a war between China and Japan
can hardly leave Russia indifferent. If Japan
beat China, would not Russia's turn come next?
Therefore, will not Russia be tempted to help
China now? And if it does, will Japan extend its
attacks to Russian territory-to Vladivostok and
Russia's far-eastern provinces, which Japan has
long coveted?
Confronted by such problems as these, and
with possible European complications in mind,
the statesmen of Britain and France will doubt.
less seek a common policy of neutrality an
vigilance, then wait. Both, undoubtedly-but
more particularly Britain-may be expected to
keep in close touch with Washington, if, indeed,
Britain is not already in close touch with Wash-
For a war in Ethiopia or Spain is one thing;
it can be circumscribed and isolated. But a war
between China and Japan, threatening to involve
Russia, is something incalculable.
And what of our own policies? We shall re-
main neutral-that goes without saying. But
how? In what conditions?
We can go it alone. Or we can keep more
or less closely in touch with Britain and France,
to work out some common program. Under exist-
ing treaties, we are more or less bound to con-
sult with other peaceful nations in time of crisis.
But we are not bound in advance to any program
of action-not internationally.
We are definitely hampered, however, by the
foolish and dangerous neutrality law which Con-
gess and the President recently insisted upon
adopting, under which, without the slightest
necessity, we more or less surrendered in advance
our freedom of action, in the matter of. trade
with belligerents.
Japan has its own war industries. China's
war industries are still in the making. Japan
makes its own equipment. China has to buy
abroad many of the arms and supplies it needs
for self-defense. President Roosevelt invoked
the law and declared embargoes in the cases of
Ethiopia and Spain. In a passive way we thereby

helped Italy against the Ethiopians, and Franco
against Madrid. Having created these prece-
dents, Mr. Roosevelt is faced now with the di-
lemma either of pretending that the Sino-Jap-
anese war is not a war, or of admitting the fact
of war, and putting on embargoes, the result of
which would be to help Japan's aggression and
handicap China's defense. For a considerable
part of China's military equipment is American,
and while China might still buy arms in Britain,
Russia and elsewhere, these arms would not be
of the same models China now uses. It is to be
hoped, in the interests of fair play and of future
world peace, that the President will find some
way of keeping a free hand as long as possible
even under our shortsighted neutrality law.
Adjusted Taxes
(From Hamilton Gazette)
the general tax burden Can be equalized
and lowered without impairing the operation
of government is the income tax, especially on
incomes in the higher brackets. It has been
shown that the retail sales tax, while an effec-
tive means of obtaining revenue quickly, is detri-
mental in the long run from a social and eco-
nomic point a of view. The inadequacy of the
property tax lies in the fact that the value of
real property and of personal property, such as
furniture, implements, and equipment, can be
readily concealed. Where the taxes on property.
have to carry the entire burden and are neces-
sarily high, experience has shown that people

On The Level
BEING WRESTED from my Pickwick Papers
and coffee with the abrupt notification, "You
write the column tomorrow," is an ominously
distracting procedure for two reasons. First of
all, guest columning approaches in difficulty the
paroxysmal agony of a first column, where you
don't know exactly what to say to make a good
impression. Second, I have shied away from
such a medium of expression since my piquant
newsy paragraphs in a local weekly publication
brought demands from a young lady for a public
apology, and again from a big bruiser a request
to step into the alley-
* * * *
to the last lamplit melodrama 25 years ago in
University Hall auditorium, and now this old
place, barricaded and covered with dust, once
seating 3,000 students, dreams in unhurried sleep
of past glories--lone with its reveries of Emer-
son and Schumann-Heink, who came there. Each
day 12,000 students rush past the closed portals
and few of them know it is there.
We were introduced to the old hall two semes-
ters past, and stood there without speaking, in
the midst of what seemed a shrine, as the snow
swirled outside in a December dusk. To those
such as Secretary Shirley Smith, Regent Julius
Beal, and others with whom we've talked en-
joyable hours about the Hall, should they stand
there now they should certainly hear faint echoes
of the melodious voice of forceful William Jen-
nings Bryan-James Whitcomb Riley reciting to
a hushed audience, "Good-bye, Jim," back in
1893-and erudite Charles A. Dana-or the im-
mortal Paderewski evoking all the possible beauty
from Chopin's "Nocturne"-
Invocation of such memories of the far-far-
away must include Mme. Ernestine Schumann-
Heink, her voice, as rich and deep as her soul,
flung to the high ceiling .. . and the then "prom-
ising" naive Alma Gluck . . . and to their ears
must come even now the vague but ever indelible
impressions of Bill Nye, Hamlin Garland, Booker
T. Washington, Mark Twain, Champ Clark and
others of a gone day in brave parade. They.
must, if they listen with alert ears, catch the
reverberations down the years of John Phillip
Sousa's band bursting into that new march, "The
Stars and the Stripes Forever," . . . they must
hear the sobbing violin of Kreisler, and the
dancing tunes of one Victor Herbert ...
James Burrill Angell's lie was intimately in-
terwoven with that of old U. Hall auditorium.
When its splendor was given the final touch in
1873, he had been prexy for two years, and it
was only four years after he gave his last swing-
out address in trembling, hesitating words on
May 4, 1909, that the last ripple swept across the
last audience, and Hill Auditorium was dedicated.
It can't be many years before the old place will
be torn asunder, for it serves no practical pur-
pose in this world of common sense. But now
it stands proud, like something out of the past,
its dreams hardly disturbed by the soft fall of
December snow and the summer breeze brushing
the leaves of the ancient trees outside its lofty
ornamental dome.

COEDS SEEM to be measured for their ca-
pacity for drinking rather than their capacity
for thinking. But this young woman at a recent
unofficial fraternity party, combined the two
with. exquisite adroitness. She swirled in an
ecstatic mist for an hour before passing out. We
kept the note to her roommate she had pinned
on her chest before the final swoon. The mes-
sage, it's ink blurred by an indiscreet Tom Col-
lins, bears the words: "Pulease Connie, Pin My
Hair Up."

OUR BARBER remarked that the students will
be deserting the place in a few days, and with
some thought added, "And it won't be long until
the college boys come in again." Next week the
campus, mAde quiet by the absence of 5,000 souls,
will slumber in terrible stillness. The carillon
will boom out the quarter-hours to resound only
on the emptiness of the ivy-entwined buildings.

The campus will hear no off-key seranading
those midnights, and the classrooms will be
strangely silent, as no footsteps cross the thres-
holds. A deadly quiet will permeate the campus,
the slight breeze in the old trees is the only
thing that stirs.
ONE OF THE MOST important activities of
college is just talking. And surroundings are
perhaps the greatest factor in stimulating and
influencing talk and moods to fill nostalgic mem-
ories a decade hence. The Parrot, where chat-
ter of forthcoming dances is interspersed by
comments on professors and people, how tough
bluebooks are, and what orchestras are best,
thrown against a filigree of smart cracks, and all
drowned in a wave of swing music. And in op-
position the quietude of Foster's Tea Room with
Prof. Artie Cross seated across the way with his
cane, and small log burning in the fireplace of a
winter's afternoon, encourages talk of books and
make-believe. And those small all-night res-
taurants clustered about the' courthouse, for
consideration of affairs, economic, social and
political over black coffee at 3 a.m. The Pretzel
Bell, where you go to see people and to be seen
(isn't that the reason?) where the conversational
pattern demands a forced conviviality and re-
spectability. The little ice-cream parlor on
Main Street not far from the double-feature
movie places, where sincerity has a chance. The
beer places beyond Main where be-smirched
stories are swapped (or listened to). The restful
Haunted Tavern, where a slow-paced meal may
