in 1900 He says todays students are brighter than their par ents Try to think back and recall what you knew about men and events and the world when you were a youngster and then consider what your young man or young woman knows today Professor OHara says One of the most significant changes in the modern student is the broadening of his back ground of general information The interests of members of the football squad used to be confined almost exclusively to athletics and to the concrete and prosaic facts which they learned in their classrooms But almost any college football player mow can tell you about ONeill Shaw symphony music Lorado Taft or any other prominent figure in any of the arts The class of 1929 is inclined to be more frank liberal and tolerant than their predecessors of 1900 Personal Interest in literature the drama and fine music 13 respected A student who was an enthusiast In any branch of the arts used to be regarded on the campus as a freak Students ase suspicious of traditions taboos and precedents inquiring spirit may ap proach cynicism but are anxious to obtain ungarnlshed Information Perhaps Mr OHara is right But one wonders the Increased knowledge which he credits to the col legian of today isnt in fact merely a larger slock of loose information that will do neither him nor any body else good COLLEGES NOT CUREALLS THE past thirty years college attendance in creased sixfold But the tide is changing In the Reason of 192728 the increase was only two pSicent sJbjjer the year before In 192829 the Increasewas one per cent The great increase ofa few years was ono of the striking results of a new and more widely distributed prosperity The increasing fashion of today however Is to question more and mora close ly just what education Is and just how best to get It A chance at college Is worth while and youngmen and women should be encouraged to take that chance and to work for the opportunity but a college educa tion is not a cureall It does not provide success does not even insure a good mind SCHACKLING BRAINS WHEN brains are put in chains by the government the government is on the way out No matter what temporary success Mussolini may be having In running Italy according to his system when he de crees that no teacher shall teach in the higher schools of Italy unless he advocates what the government tells him to the

wished to ask But suddenly a fly buzzed along Quick as a streak of lightning Uncle Praying Mantis threw out hia long arms and caught the fly Holding it in frontof him In the trap of his spiked Jogs he began to eat the poor fly in much the same manner as boy would eat an apple Have a bite he coolly asked Peter Theres m use in my asking the WalkingSticks they cat nothing but leaves poor things Peter

proposing a simplified method of idministeringthe debenture plan In he event of its passage a plan which would eliminate he believes he danger of speculators absorbing the debenture Senator Brookhart is of the opin ion that tho debenture idea will be made a part of the tariff bill and that it will pass He feels that it is entirely practical and right and that it will be of impelling influence in stabilizing farm prices and in hold ingthem at a level in harmony with other industrial incomes As for prohibition its enforce ment and the other things inciden tal to that great question Senator Brookhart feels that there has been a marked improvement in conditions during the past few months The trend is toward law observance now much more than at any previous time since the passage of the

They take it for granted that things are safe and sometimes discover hat something is wrong only when causes disaster The Baltimore Automobile club and the police of that city recently stopped and inspected as many automobiles aa they could lay Iheiv hands on Of 193354 cars Inspected they found more than 31000 that needed brake adjustments in order to bo perfectly safe Eight thousand had unsuspected defects In the steering gear and nearly 40000 needed adjustments of lights These may be considered small matters but they arc just the sort of thing that can catise unavoidable accidents
