The Bache Review has recently said
that Germany in attempting to stir up1
trouble between Japan and the UnitedE
States failed sadly and that her futile
attempt will only serve to cement re-
lations between our country and Jap-'
an. The Reveiw further states that on
account of this affair much interest
has been aroused in this country with,
regard to Japan's part in the European
war and surprising reports have been
revealed indicating the great aid which
she has lent to the entente powers.
Not only has Japan deprived Germany
of Kiao-Chau, a powerful fortress and
important naval base in the Far East,
but she has also rendered effectual
service in the way of providing mun-
itions and war equipment.
During the last two years Japan
has sold munitions to Russia alone
amounting to $150,000,000, besides tak-
ing over millions of dollars worth of
Russian bonds. To help finance Eng-
land and France, Japan bought $30,-
000,000 of railroad bonds from France
and over $70,000,000 worth of English
bonds. Also she supplied both England
and France with a great quantity of
war material.
Two great government arsenals in
Japan and thousands of private fac-
tories are kept busy constantly man-
ufacturing all kinds of ammunition for
the Allied armies.
Japan has also deposited the greater
part of her gold abroad in the Bank of
Some of the swains upon the cam,
pus, who have visions of spending
these first balmy days of spring in
strolling down the boulevard, may be
disappointed when a feminine voice
over the phone remarks that she is
busy sewing shirts for soldiers. In
thiscase, the soldiers are the stalwart
Scythian bodyguard of King Thoas,
who makes his appearance at the
Classical club's presentation of "Iphi-
genia Among the Taurians", on March
29. Every feminine memberof. the
club is busy getting ready the cos-
tumes for the play.
In default of fashion plates of the
fifth century B. C., the busy seams-
tresses have resorted to ancient vase-
paintings, sculptures, and the like. The
barbarian soldiers in the play will
wear yellow trousers and green coats
and the Greek tunics of the chorus will
be varied in color. In this way, novel
scenic effects. will be gained.

It all happened during the Band
Bounce. Pete had sung the first of
Simons' songs. and had gotten away
good. He was feeling happy, and
when the second song was received
with still more applause he was over-
flowing with joy. Then he came out
in a three-cornered hat and military
coat and began to sing "We've Got
Military Training Now." Every line
had a punch and the faces in the audi-
ence were decorated with grins. Final-
ly Pete came to the end of the song
where the lines ran:
"Shh-, don't speak it any louder-
Morrie Dunne's afraid of powder."
As he sang these lines his eyes
roamed over the part of the audience
nearest the stage, and lo! and behold,
Maurie Dunne sat there-right in the
front row.
It must be remembered that Pete
weighs only about 112 pounds, so
when he saw Maurie looking on he
almost fell through the floor. He
could hardly walk. off the stage,
It may have been noticed that Pete
refused to come out and acknowledge
the- applause. The reason is easily
explained. Pete had gotten Simons
into a room with him, locked the door,
,nd crawled under the table. And
whenever anyone spoke above a whis-
per he shivered.
Pete sneaked out of the building
about 12 o'clock that night.

Women Marry To
Escape Working
Wisconsin Professor Claims Husband.
Catching More Worth-While
Today Than Ever




Iowa City, Iowa, March 13.-Women:
seek the harbor of marriage as a hav-
en from all work, and husband catch-
ing is more worth while today than
ever before, stated Prof. E. A. Ross of
the University of Wisconsin, in a lee-
ture here on "The Changing Social
Position of Women.'
The modern married woman has'
only about one-fifth as much to do in
the home. and statistics show that she
has only about one-half as many chil-
dren to look after as her grandmother
had, he pointed out. She has so much
time to spare that she has entered
the field of politics as an additional
source of interest over and above her
bridge, clubs, and social meetings.
It is only the wives of the very poor
who have to get out and work, those
whose husbands are even moderately
well off have all the necessities of life
already, made up for them at every
neighborhood grocery, and are put to
very little inconvenience in the pre-
paring of food and taking care of the
It is this easy existence, this shift-
ing of the burden of providing a living

Professor Ross, is doing so much to
increase marriages in the United

Dartmouth Strongly Against War
H-anover, March 13.--In a straw vote
.aken yesterday, it was learned that
while Dartmouth strongly backed the
armed neutrality measures of Pres-
dent Wilson, an overwhelming vote of
593 to 162 showed that the greater
majority felt the present situation did
-ot warrant war, and that the presi
dent ought not to declare it. The bal-'
toting was in favor of optional nil-
itary training.

len iWeasons W ty
Men Should Swear
Berkeley, Cal., March 13.-Ten good
reasons why every respectable think-
ing college man should swear just asl
often and as hard as he can are set1
forth in a circular addressed to E. M.
C.? A. students here. These reason.,
1. Because it would look so nice in
2. Because it is such a conclusive
proof of taste and good breeding.
3. Because it is just what a man s
mother enjoys having her son do.
4. Because it is such a help to
manhood and virtue in many ways.
5. Because it is such a good way'
of increasing one's self respect.
6. Because it is such an elegant
wVay of expressing one's thoughts.
7. lecuase it is positive evidence of
acquaintance with good literature.
8. Because it furnishes such a good
example and training for the boys.
9. Because it is such a sure way of
making one's self agreeable to his

way of improving one's chances in
the hereafter.

ment, "Be a man."

New York, March 13.-The Women's
City club of New York City, backed
by 40 judges and lawyers of that city,
has started a campaign to secure the
admission of women to the Columbia
law school.
Opposition to a co-educational law
school exists among the faculty be-
cause they fear that it would keep
away a number of desirable students
who are attracted to the Columbia
school partly by the fact that women
are not admitted.
Many of the faculty have, however,
expressed themselves as being in favor
of the move. Women were admitted
to the summer school law classes for
the first time last year.

his right hand, a distinguished visitor
to The Daily office took his stand be-
fore the N. E.'s desk. He cleared his
throat after the fashion of a minister,
plenipotentiary bound on business of

all, in fact, save the expansive smile
and the wonderful memory. Call
again, Jack, but don't scare us to
death. Thought you were a regent or
worse still-a German ambassador.
