To continue to make of the two streets in ques-
tion a public speedway is utter folly. But not until
some definite steps are taken to force him down to
a sensible gait will the frantic motorist see fit to be
reasonable. Before something serious does befall,
therefore, we suggest the installation of a post, at
South University and State, in such a position that
our worshippers at the altar of Speed will be forced
either to slow down, in order to get around it,
or else lay themselves liable to punishment.
Quibbling is a pastime to which we are all some-
what addicted. It is a game, and like other games
has its *les, the principal one of which is that
neither player shall have any very definite or- ac-
curate knowledge of the subject at hand. He who.
is most greatly blesesd with ignorance generally
makes the best quibbler.
IMen never quibble about things in their own
special fields of activity. The baker may quibble
about anything in the world except his 'own sub-
ject, bread; he cannot quibble about bread because
he is too well acquainted with it. College students,
being now equipped perhaps with a more extensive
line of general ignorance than they will have after
they have begun sp.ecialization in their chosen fields.
are especially strong in this field of competition.,
They quibble long and loud, and particularly in the
classroom where they call it "stalling" or "handing;
a line." The less the student knows of the subject'
at hand, the better he is sometimes enables to "get
by," if he is clever.
The trouble with the quibbling game, however, is
that it is all a highly veneered type of fake. Real
argumentation may expose error and falsehood and
glorify truth, but to carry it on one requires a knowl-
edge of facts. Therefore, we resort to the quibble.
If we were more widely informed, perhaps we
would not have to do so. At least so it is to be
hoped; for, when we quibble, we fairly shout our
ignorance to the world. And, after all, we seldom.'
fool anyone but ourselves.

Just why the retail prices of food should go up
while everything else is coming down, is one of the
It creates a tragic situation for the millions who
are out of work and without income, for whatever
else they can get along without they.must eat.
The department of labor investigated retail food
prices in ten principle cities and found that in nine
of them-,'they averaged from one to ten percent
higher on July 15 than on June 15'
The investigations should not stop there. The
government should locate the profiteers. ,If there
are no laws under which they can be prosecuted,
they at least should be pilloried.

We have this, morning piclked up a journalistic
brother's text on Headline Writing, and found in it
a few things which rather intrigued our idle fancies.
Many pages of the tome were interspersed with such
ONCE FAMOUS BEACH

which should be a solemn warning to all summer
cottagers to get their lake fronts insured against,
fires. Of. course fire insurance on beaches, trout
streams, and the like comes high, but in the summer
time we should look to these things.
On another page we find the words:
EVERYONE ON TRAIN PEEPED
for which we should like to write the story from
imagination, but haven't the space here. Also:

Now why in the name of goodness the Melrose boy
had to remove damages caused undoubtedly by the
City .Clerk, ,or the Mayor himself, is beyond us.,
It's lucky they haven't done anything like that at
our home town city hall-they'd have to call in the
National Guard and make an all day job of it.
Then we came to this:
ON SIDEWALK BY
in which case we should not say daring at all, but
should use some more appropriate term, such as
"careless" or "absent minded."
But the climax came toward the end of the les-
son, where our attention was caught by:
HUSBANDS AREN'T ALL ALIKE

and the still more alarming statement, for us at
