time, twenty-four students are employed in tfte tap-
room alone, and during the regular school year, two
hundred persons, one-half of which number are stu-
dents, are employed in the building. To pay these,
people, money is required, how much we may un-
derstand when we learn that the pay roll averages
$i5,ooo a month.
Perhaps certain departments of the Union do
make money; they are almost compelled to do so in
order that the organization may survive. ,3ut,
when we stop to consider that, with total receipts for
last year amounting to $400,000, the institution lost
$3,070, some conception may be gained as to just
how muc of a "graft" the Union is. ..The manage-
ment has cever tried to break even, but it must come
somewhere near doing so, for there is no endow-
ment fund to fall back upon.
Good, honest, sensible criticism is highly desir-
able; it helps to keep people on their toes. Prob-
ably a certain amount of criticism, moreover, is
merited by the Union, for no institution of its size
was ever known to be perfect. Nevertheless, we
must realize that th7e mere handling of an organiza-
tion of the size of our own students' club house. is
a big task in itself, and a proposition entailing the
expenditure of quantities of money. If students
have complaints, just and well-founded complaints,
to register against the institution, no doubt they will
be gratefully received. But certainly mere biased
sarcasm will never get us anywhere in a constructive,

ON RESTORING STATUES
Considerable comment has been aroused by the
recent action of the British museumA, in London, in
restoring the nose of the statue of Demeter of Cnidus.
Artists and art critics have held up their han'ds in,
holy horror at the idea of desecrating so marvelous
a piece of sculpture by adding to its face' a -new
proboscis to replace the old.
Classical art works, of the type of Demeter, have
grown into our memories as they are, and to try to
restore them seems, even to one who is neither art-
ist nor critic, to be not only a sad waste of effort but
a really pitiful attempt to do again something the
Greeks did of old and which no one under the sun
will ever be able adequately to duplicate. The Vic-
tory of Samothrace has lost some of the most
important parts of her anatomy, but that does not ex-
cuse modern sculptors from making attempts to re-
store them. The Greeks had their own style, and a
restored cla'ssical statue is no more classical than a
grass hut would be barbaric if it were to be adorned
with a tin roof.
Modern effort is evolving an art of its own, just
as did Greece of old. But modern art can never
become classical no matter how hard it tries. The
Greeks of Praxiteles' time had their typical "style"
and we have ours. We had much better spend our
time, then, in studying the perfect works of that per-
iod and in developing, through original constructive
work, our own conception of art than to be eternally
planning on how we may patch up what the centuries
