annual meet ing of state high school athletic association repre sentatives one Is left with the suspicion that age rather than the young idea has prevailed in some of the deliberations In ruling against holding athletic tournaments be yond the bounds of a specifically against the Stagg is this arraignment of th8 present order Our high schoolathletics are constantly being ex ploited by agencies and for purposes generally devoid of any educational aims and ideals specifically for purposes of advertising publicity community insti tutional and personal prestige financial gain enter tainment and amusement the recruiting of athletic teams and other purposes none of which has much in common with the objectives of high school education There is the further charge that this exploitation tends to promote a tremendously exaggerated pro gram of interscholastic contests detrimental to the academic objectives of the high schools thru a whollj Indefensible distortion of values and in general sub versive of any sane program of physical education Many with quite a fair understanding of the situa tion will disagree with the opinions expressed Is com wunity advertising an unjustifiable objective for high school athletics Thats one of the several question that might be asked If the individual community which supports its own schools out of its own pocke feel differently about whether values are in oughtifr to bold ng such an opinion and acting on The pendulum has swung too far The exaggeration of the overemphasis on athletics is as conspicuous a fthe overemphasis

at leas ought to be interested in the proposal to add members to the cabinet This may not come about bu it is at least being discussed by those in authority in the government The idea is to have a secretary o public works and a secretary of education These woul make important departments and there is room fo much work But it is well to keep in mind that effi ciency sometimes decreases in proportion to th number of mea engaged If there is to be a new member in the cabinet ou best suggestion is that he tie a secretary of education It would take a wise man and one astonishingly we qualified to fill this position competently For wh knows what education is And who Knows what ought to be We know fairly well what sort of teach ing and training are to be had in the schools and we know what passes for education But education is something over and beyond the average type of school ing To give boys and girls the right attitude toward the life they are beginning and to give them disci pline and the sense of moral are the great tasks of education Speaking of cabinets one notices that cabinet members speak now and then over the radio That is a perfectly good idea In England those most respons ible for the quality of the government are more re sponsive to the people Cabinets rise and fall more fre quently at the peoples will We contemplate no change for the purpose of modeling our government after that of great Britain but we should indeed welcome all the means which will bring those in authority in our gov ernment into closer and more frequent contact with the

ways tnat arc strange the average American indeed is peculiar For example He rails at the laxity in prohibition enforcement and then flays the prohibition agent who stops a sus pected automobile to conduct a search for liquor Ha criticizes the city for letting BO many dogs run at large and then abuses the dog catcher who picks up an unlicensed dog in performing the duties of his office He rips into the police department for its failure to atop petty larceny or bootlegging and then scores the policeman who uses firm methods in making an arrest He argues for the prosecution of crime wherever it exists and then comments He wouldnt have been convicted if Jied been rich when the ordinary s tence is pronounced He holds abstractly for the dealing out of stern ness in the punishment of crime But specifically he shouts for leniency even coddling when theres an actual cose in point As we said for ways that are strange the average American is peculiar And therein lies the principal reason that the en forcement of law in this country hasnt even Broached perfection ap the sun and the air arc also cur live At Rolliers institute in the Swiss Alps where ie air is pure and ratified and the

would undoubtedly have her expose her knee nd leg to the sun and air every day beginning with few minutes a day and gradually increasing the area xposed and the time of exposure Some cases of lung

it was the boys turn to stare at the Duck CA course I am You have been looking at me foi some must have seen me even when you were in the pool Do you mean to tell me this is the first you had noticed it How could you possibly take me fcyrjsnvthintr It T was looking at you i really didnt see you declared Duck slowly I am afraid I was too cold to notice who you were A Two LegB Just think of It The boy lost bis patience at last of what demanded he Suppose T am I am sure I have just as much right to be a TwoLegs as jou have to be a Duck Of course Of course cried the Duck hastily Nobody says you havent But what 1 cant gel over is that I am here beside you and mote than that a book to bed with him Not al ways a detective story either The president is a bi ography fan too Eleven fa his bedtime and he rises at seven but how long he ies awake reading I cant find out I doubt whether anyone knows Probably he dozes off gradually and couldnt tell the precise minute himself Certain chroniclers claim to have timed him all day but I am aware of none who has sat up with him to clock his first snore l ji THIS small uncertaintys signifi cance lies in the fact that fall ing asleep is virtually the only thing in the days work that the president Is permitted to do minus some functionary stop watch in hand to keep him from knocking the whole white house program cockeyed by the merest instants

as if you were my friend and am I not Havent I just sav saved your Magnetism ho may lack but not forcefulnesF Like his policies or not there is no question that he has them In a month he has told more of what he means to begun doing a good deal oC Calvin Coolidge in seven years BELIEVE his press visitors will agree that Mr Hoover aa presi dent gives an impression of far greater liberality in his political views than some of them had ex pected Ho appears opposed to an oppres sive a disciple of ths tarlffforrevenue creed Many forecasters predicted that would betray jealousy of congress Instead he speaks more respectfully of its prerogatives than any of his recent predecessors Not a trace of the dictatorial shows In what the strictest constitutionalist must ad mit him entitled to His law enforcement attitude Is criticized by those who blame the Jaws themselves if they break down Yet even these critics wonder if his aim may not be to force a climax to hasten real reform In brief Mr Hoovera Initial month in the white house assuredly has gained him friends who were doubtful first Or at any rate they not as doubtful as they were BUT the presidential schedule Well up at 7 breakfast
