In taking rooms farther from the campus, -the
students have the greatest opportunity to help the
situation, although our general neglect of what
money means will lead us to pay the demanded
prices for rooms near the University, although un-
willingly. If a great many men went far from the
.campus, there would be a number of vacant rooms
near the campus, and this, resulting in competition
among the landladies, might relieve conditions. Of
course the students will probably not do this; think-
ing it too inconvenient for the amount involved, al-
though a few-might take just such action because of
the principle. However, living some distance from
the campus is not an uncommon thing. In the large
city universities, students are forced to go miles
to get rooms, and if such action here would bring
cheaper prices, they might findt it profitable.
These are the ways,, in which relief from the high
rentals will come, it seems to us. Each one of them
is dependable for success upon the students them-
'selves. If there were a little good co-operation
among the men that are renting the rooms, the
landladies might be induced or rather coerced into,
coming down on their prices.
MINERS AND SWITCHMEN-A CONTRAST
Justice for the bituminous coal miners of Illinois
and Indiana is promised through a meeting of the,
joint scale commission of operators and miners call-
ed by President Wilson. The call for the meeting
was conditional upon the return of the miners to
work. They have returned to work. They may now
reasonably expect a fair adjustment of their grie&-
In contrast to this situation we have the news
that the .representatives of 'the switchmel who
struck without authorization last April have just
completed a four day conference with W\ashington
officials regarding their status. They have received
no prmis of adjustment of'theirgrievances.
The same oppofunity to return to work and ob-
tain a hepring was presehted to the switchmen last
April as was presented to the miners last month.,
They refused. They tied up transportation, caused
incalculable loss -to industry, contributed to the
causes of the miners' strike, suffered four months'
loss of income and have obtained nothing.
Leaving out of consideration the justice of the.
demands in either case, the developments show
'conclusively that the miners' submission to author-
ity and their return to work promise them a meas-
ure of success, while the switchmen's defiance of,
authority has cost them dearly. A comparison
should convince the unions that the public will not
tolerate an interruption of its vital activities at the
whim of any organization while the grievances of
that organization can be adjusted equally well with-
out such interruption.
The more consideration workmen in essential in-
dustries show to the public, the more they will
show to themselves. The same public opi n'on
which can defeat a runaway strike can awl will
accord justice to organizations which state their
grievances through constituted channels without
interrupting the business of the nation.-The C/ri-.

EFFICIENCY IN FARMING
Secretary Meredith recently was asked to ex-
plain some specific instances of the benefits' farmers
are receiving, from the department of agriculture.
Amopg the many he mentioned of outstanding in-
terest is, the remunerative utilization of corn cobs
which far years were considered worthless except
for use in kindling fires.
Chemists. have discovered that at least half a
dozen products may be derived from the cobs and
plans are being developed by the department to
turn this by-product of the farms into a valuable
commodity. The United States produces nearly
20,ooo,ooo tons of corn cobs a year. Out of each
ton, according to -Mr. Meredith, thirty pounds of
furfural can be manufactured at a cost of only 20
cents a pound. Furfural is a basic intermediary in
dyes and has been so rare, that it has sold for as,
much as $20 a pound. On this basis the value of
America's cob crop if manufactured into this one
chemical would amount to an enormous amount.
This is only one proof of the value of the, sci-
entific investigation and efforts to promote crop
improvement by the department of agriculture.
Many more are mentioied in the official's .state-
ment. Apparently great opportunities lie ahead of
our agriculturists. Efficiency has made manufact-
uring industries much more profitable than they
were a decade ago. The improvement in t hat
branch of endeavor has been developed, through ex-
tensive investigation. Agriculture, our greatest in-
dustry, has not kept up the pace set by manufactur-
ing. In the' face of labor problems and the need
of greater financial returns the importance of effic-
iency and less wastefulness become apparent. The
department of agriculture can render a large serv-
ice in educating the country to utilize -more fully.
