But if Chairman Fordney is so tender of the
pressing oil needs of the' country, why is he so strik-
ingly indifferent to the even more pressing lumber
needs of the country?
The domestic shortage of the oil supply is nothing
like the lumber shortage. There is oil enough in this
country, if we are foolish enough to exhaust it in a
few years, to take care of our domestic needs and
more. There in even oil enough, if we go on letting
it sell abroad as we are doing, but should not do, to
take care of some of the present foreign needs for a
while. But there is not lumber enough in this coun-
try to supply the home demand by a wide open
margin, even if we slaughter every available tree
and make a waste of the forests that are left to us.
The country cannot get along without lumber.
The country cannot escape disaster if we strip our
forests bare. We must have foreign lumber in large
quantity or we must suffer heavily for lack of it.
Yet Chairman Fordney declares there must and will
be a terrible duty on lumber to bleed the American
public white with the cost of ending the housing
shortage in the immediate present. And evercon-
suming our own lumber must expose the country to
the perils of lumber destitution in the near future.
Why so right-so right economically, politically'
and patriotically about oil, Mr. Fordney, but so
wrong-so shockingly wrong in every way about
lumber? What is the secret, Mr. Fordney?

Owr Weekly Editorial
Tomorrow night we shall attempt to purchase an
Italian or Danish newspaper, and to gather from it
a logical and clear account of the day's occurrences.
Because today we have been reading parts of a
great American sheet, and have run across items
that are so senseless and obscure in meaning that a
story from a Polish journal would seem to possess
crystalline clarity in comparison. We refer primar-
ily to the financial page, upon which we turned eyes
eagerly seeking light on economic problems of the
day. The following paragraph first met pur gaze:
"HIDES-Salted bull hides, 4c; salted bull hides,
damaged, 3c; green bull, 3c; green calf, 7Ys; green
kip, 9c; deacons, each -6c; glueskins, 5c; and glue
Now if any one on our fair campus can make
t head or tail of this collection of blaa we will be
forced to knowledge fhat there really is an academic
mind a'fter all. Let us try our hand on the items,
just to see how foolish the thing is. We start fF
with salted bull hides, which are bringing four cents.
Please tell us, gentle reader, have you ever seen a
salted bull? Neither have we-and if there were
such a thing, his skin would certainly be worth more
than four cents, simply as a 'curiosity, wouldn't it?
The next speaks of salted bull hides, damaged. There
is really some reason in this, for it is hard to see
how the bull could be very well salted without dam-
aging his hide to some extent.
Then look at the following statement-"Green
bull, 3C !" How many green bulls, gentle reader,
has it been your good fortune to see? Certainly not
more than a few, and why in the world should their
selling prices .be printed in the daily papers, to tant-
alize a farmer who has nothing to sell but good old
fashic ed br n or black bulls, of the common,
garden variety? It seems positively cruel. This is
followed by "green calves," which sell for more than
twice as much as fullgrown green bulls. Is there
any justice in this? Think of the days of labor
spent by a farmer in taking care of his green bull,
currying him, washingg him-we suppose with ParisI
green-in attempts to bring out his clear emerald
tints, only to find on market day that he might bet-
ter have sold the thing as a calf ! In the same strain
we find that "green kips",are selling for nine cents,
even more than a green calf brings. And what in
the world is a green kip, anyhow ? I don't know
whether they mew or whinny.
"Deacons, hoc"--rather low, we admit, but still
comfortably above, the level of kips, in price. But
why put such an item on the financial page. Should-
n't it be with the religious news?' And "glueskins"
-and "gluehides"-ut we give up. Ou cry is that
of the editorial writer in every crisis-"Something
ought to be done about it"
Every Summer session, for two or three nights,
we are allowed to visit the Observatory. Possi
bly this method of star-gazing is not entirely accept-
able to all co-educational enthusiasts, however.
When we contemplate the present mudy condi-
tion of the Huron, we may well be thankful that its
water is no longer being pumped into town for our'
internal and external consumption.
We wonder what certain metropolitan papers
would do for scare heads if federal laws ever sue-
