organization But its potentialities for exerting healthful influence are going to be greatly militated against if It formsa habit of going off halfcocked as it did at the state congress in Des Molhes last week when a resolution was adopted by unanimous vote in which required military training in public schools and state educational institutions was disapproved This was a hasty unwarranted action which wilt regretted by a considerable part of the organiza tions membership Obviously the resolution represents an undue influence wielded by a paciflstic element mora interested inmaking United States defense less Defers an armed world than in promoting the causes for which the P T A stands AVe challenge any P T A leader to cite a solitary Instance in which any young man has been harmed by tho disciplinary and physical training which is a part of the curriculum for freshmen and sophomores at Iowas state institutions At the same time we will agree to point to numberless cases in which there nave been tremendous benefits to thD Individual So much for that phase of the matter Conceding that thetraining is notharmful to the individual let us advance to another consideration One of these two things is true Either 1 the training is goingjp he used or 2 jt is not If the necessity for utilizing what is learned in the military courses should individual would be in a position to protect himself and his country to best advantage If the necessity does not arise no body is going to be the worse for the training Unfortunately the mere wishing for continued peace pn the part of this country does not guarantee well be recognized that many parts of Vivid notably countries of Europe have their reliance In wai as neverbefore Thats a concrete provable fact and it isnt to bs escaped by sticking our heads in the sand as the leaders of Iowas P T A have been Induced to do The really farsighted mother will look squarely at this situation She willrecognize straightway that her son trained to do the Job that may be forced upon him as a loyal citizen will be facing leas risk than the boy who faces danger without knowing what it Is all about Denominational schools generally speaking do not require military training Their doors are open to all who can meet the prerequisites as to scholarship Therefore none can say that militarytraining is com pulsory It is required only of those who of their own free will elect to obaln their education largely at state expense Equipping themselves to defend their home state and nation ia the price they pay for the publics benefaction one justification for an act such as has been talcen by the P T As congress would be a showing that required military training tends to promote war Up 11to this time there hasnt been an iota of proof that Bucb is the case In fact the evidence is all to the contrary MASQN CITY GLOBE THE RUSSIAN POT SUMMERS JVUSSIA seems to be having a recrudescence of her red terror in smaller scale In the last week there have been repeated official stories from Moscow of executions by the G P U the secret police force which is more powerful even than the central soviet itself The executions are given out as death sentences carried out for various offenses such as smuggling gems out of the country counterrevolutionary activ ities white terrorist efforts etc But it is significant that every fall seesa renewal of the G P U execu tions at the period when the central authority is re quisitioning their grain from the peasants Communism has still to win the peasants They do not rebel because the soviet government has given lands but they do not relish being forced toglve up their harvests and every fall sees an out break of resentment with which the secret police deal with an iron hand Premier

Ingwersen lowaa football coach felt a year or two ago when ths wolves were upon nim Wisconsins football team touted at the beginning of tha season to be a formidable contender for the Big Ten championship has lost three games in a row Thats immensely disappointing to Badger fol lowers who place all emphasis on the won and lost columns Many are saying that the team is lacking in spirit and leadership A few are attributing it to poor coaching But this argument ia a little weak in that Thistle thwalte in hia time at Northwestern took a cellar team and made it a contender for the championship year after year One year the Purple won it Thats the advantage the Badger coach has over Ingwersen A glance at his record demonstrates be yond peradventure that he is not a poor coach Ing wersen was a youngster without a record to point to Thlstlethwaites fate ia probably not as precarious as was that of the Hawkeye coach for a time When tha Badgers get on the winning side for a game

makes any particu 1 lar difference but in the event that youre inter Skelly stage and screen star once played baseball with Notre Dame and spent a summer with the Boston Braves when George Stallings managed the team THERE is always something pathetic In the labor 1 ious devices men exert to control the expenditure of hardearned money long after they have meandered up the Golden Stairs Sometimes Fate The Practical Joker steps in and takes a hand as in the case of Robert Randall who upon the advice ofAlexander Hamilton set aside to establish a refuge for sailors in their old age A part of the estate was a farm located in what now is a valuable section of Manhattan With the years Brother Randalls modest trust fund has increased to the amount of fifty million dollars Trustees of the estate have been able to re cruit only 100 sailors who are supported by an Income of more than a million dollars a year DOB LITTELL DrammerDamner for the World has made a narrow gauge analysis of what theater audiences in New York laugh at There are a few gags he says which never fail to start a prairie fire of snorta and snickers You make me sick If spoken by an actor or preferably an ictress with sufficient determination is a certain bet Go to hell is another standby Sudden use of the word lousy while it Is ove vorked and badly needs a rest Is fairly reliable in an emergency More ancient and

the justices were on a level readily with without any particular chief there Oliver Wendell is no question in my mind that Jus Holmes probabtice Holmes would be just as invart ly get safely past ably

Justice Brandeis senior by 15 years in point of age by 14 years In point of service Perhaps that Is why his name nearly always leads Justice Brandeis when the question is asked Who are members of tha

yours carried out in the next naval con ference and it ends in success In addition if Grent Britains nav al expenses are reduced this will mean a reduction in the budget and a reduction In taxation and this will not be unpopular In England which of late years has been a country of high taxes It is true of course that Great Britain has its big navy party which is very powerful but the prospect of lower taxes is bound to have a popular appeal in England just as It always does in America The British labor party has Its work cut out for it In the campaign It made the promise of many domes tic reforms and among other things it promised to solve the unemploy ment problem This will be a big task and it might well develop that the partys domestic policies wouM at times be full of dynamite With
