“COMPLETECAMPUSCOVERAGE”Vol. 28. No. 38.Batlp iHlaroonSUPPORT THESETTLEMENT.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 7. 1928Price Five CentsEditor’s note: The Stumble Bum’sbeen down to the State and Congressrecently. Or was it the Haymarket?Anyway it made a big impression onhis childish mind and now he feelscalled upon to imbosom himself. Well,we’ve printed some mighty foul truckin this coliunn so far, and there’s someconsolation in the fact that thingscan’t be much worse. Here you a-e—the last mad ravings of a degeneratedmind.HOLD SEHLEMENT FINALE TONIGHTBURLESQUEby Tha Stumble Bum“Saint Louis womaaan . . . with’erdiamon’^ring ....’’The rich, veined voice seems almostto make the dingy drapes glow witha richer, fuller color. Something verysatisfying about the Saint Louis Blues.No matter what your mood may be,no matter what retrospective by-roadsyour heart may take, the blues, theSaint Louis Blues, are a part of ii.Chopin, Strauss, Bach; none of themhave ever produced such a heartwrenching melody of the masses, thatcaroling plaint “Ah hate to see . . .that evenin’ sun go down ....’’ Blues.The fat lady in the next seat ishaving a terrible time trying to findwhere she dropped her glove. Ofcourse, one should offer to dive downin the muck to aid, but after all, itisn’t expected here and for pure, un¬alloyed pleasure nothing can compare jwith the sight of a slightly ovet-stuffed lady trying to make each foldand billow and roll of porkina massdissolve into nothing in order to bendover. The wheezes and grunts andbubbling sighs. Ah! She has found it.Well, what have we on the stage.The chorus By Allah! The Lydiesof the Ensemble. Much the same asusual. Haven’t gotten a kick out ofa chorus for many moons. (.\nd that,you Saxon blighter, is NOT a pun!)One begins to pick out old friends.The three in the middle who know allthe movements but just haven’t gotthe ambition to go through them.high kick for these three lifts abouteight inches off the floor. The veryenthusiastic lady on the right whomay be a bit off time but is having aperfectly gorgeous celebration on herown. The middle aged woman whosedaughter is probably in the line some¬where and w'ho is being determinedlykittenish with the stout gentleman inthe front row center. All old friends.Every burlesque chorus from timeimmemorial has been graced withthese. But in the name of Allah whosename is great! What i 4 th’ Hell havewe on the left end? A Dresdenshep'rdess imbued with the jolly oldjazz mania! Young and vivacious, herrather indiscreet tights displaying ex¬quisitely modeled thighs. Not a goldtooth, not a glint of peroxide, !iot afault. Surely the pudgy little gods ofburlesque have made a mistake. Awild search for a program and thebringing to light of a vast number ofTrixies, Billies, Doras and all the restof the tribe but no indication of whichone the beauty might be. They oughtto number them in the program.Something on the idea of a footballjersey. The best place to mark thegirls I would judge would be on therear of their abbreviated pants. Inthe first place it is the only item ofclothing with sufficient area uponwhich to place a numeral and in the |second place it’s quite prominent, jquite. Will have to take that up withsomebody, almost anybody in fact.Well! The gorgeous young lady isback again. In a single this time too.Quite a clever toe dancer. Horriblecostume, but then, no one is lookingat the costume. An intensive searchand the bedraggeled program is againbrought to light, “Jackie Teeter’’. Itwould be. Jackie, or Billie, or Bobbie,I suppose it’s in the rules somewherebut it’s very painful. She’s goodthough. Rates a lot better than aburlesque chorus.The comedians are back again—Idon’t like cheap comedians. I supposeI’m the only person on earth who isn’tviolently amused by a putty nosed per¬son 'in a pair of bloomers.NEGRO STUDENTSPARTICIPATE INDRAMAJEVIVALCube to Present FolkPlays with NativeCastsStudents of the University are toparticipate in the only negro littletheatre movement in Chicago whenfour negro plays with complete ne¬gro casts are given at the Cube, 1538E. 67th St., early next month.

Itwas here that the celebrated Na¬tional Ethiopian Art Theatre firstproduced its version of Oscar Wilde’s“Salome.” Dunham received his Ph.B., from the University in August.This is his first quarter in the grad¬uate department of philosophy.Baber Also LeaderMiss Zonia Baber, who was incharge of the “Negro in Art” weekwhich last year attracted much at¬tention on the south side, is anotherof the leaders in negro cultural ac¬tivities in Chicago connected withthe Cube production.

Mr. Field wasparticularly interested in findingtraces of paleolithic man. Over 300prehistoric stacions were .surveyed.Lecture IllustratedHis lecture was illustrated byslides and moving pictures; showingexcavations, native customs, andsome of the many difficulties whichwere encountered in the expedition.Armored cars were necessary tokeep off the attacks of the Bedouins,and protection was needed from theheat, the quicksand, and the locustswhich appeared in large quantities.The excavations were made in theold temple tower of Kish. Underfour stratas of earth was the lay¬er in which the important discov¬eries were found. These consisted ofabout 200 skeletons, many pieces ofpottery and jewelry, acd severalchariots. Mr". Field examined andmeasured the skeletons as well asmeasuring the skulls of about 500living inhabitants of the region. Heexpects by this means to determinethe racial characteristics of the an¬cient inhabitants of this district.Wheels Earliest FoundThe wheels of the chariots are theearliest yet found.

Bees are necessary forthe polination of clover, and theabsence of mice allows the beesto exist in large numbers. Theabundance of cats is responsiblefor the scarcity of mice, and “oldmaids” are responsible for cats.Hilda Norman TalksOn Morrocan TripMiss Hilda Norman, of the Frenchdepartment, yesterday spoke beforethe French club at La Maison Fran-caise about a recent trip to Morocco.She described everyday scenes of Tan-giers, Marakesha, and Fez, such asthe markets with the persuasivevendors, the street corners and theever-present story tellers, and theshops where Americans are askedexorbitant prices by the mercenaryArabs.Miss Norman also described the in¬terior of an .\rab college, where youngMohammedans were studyingthe com¬mentaries on the Koran.

Altered somewhat from the former vodvil variety displays,the more rigid program of dramatic sketches, chorus specialties, andmusical numbers still constitute one of the major events of the extra-cirricular season. Despite the lack of overt enthusiasm, this year sDrive like previous Drives will likely be considered a “success.Yet, even the competitive zest which has always permeated theDrive seems be waning from year to year. Few likely realize justwhat is behind the Drive, what it does for the “Yards” they senti¬mentally invokes in their solicitations. For most it is just a bufferbetween a disappointing football season and a hopeful basketballyear. They must have something to tack their interest to.Whether it is that lassitude that precedes examination week,or whether it is just another evidence of the increasing impersonal¬ity of the campus attitude on most traditional interests, it is certainthat the Drive, which makes its last gestures of majesticity tonightand tomorrow night, has become more and more the project of justa handful of students who have clung to it as others have fallenaway. Many are, in fact, unaware of the activity of the SettlementCommittee. The response from those who are cognizant of theDrive is slow and forced and dispirited.But the few have persisted and, despite lack of support froma major portion of the student body, will likely secure capacityaudiences on both nights. Students must be seen there; it is theiraffiliation with a noble interest.Just how long the Settlement Drive can persist, with the local-lizing of interest in a few, is dubious. It was instituted as a cam¬paign supported by the entire student body—it was, as it was ex¬pected to be, a mass effort. The first committee had a greaterforce—the drive was yet new and its novelty served to attract thespontaneous enthusiasm of all.Now, after some few years, the novelty has worn off, andthe Drive seems destined to go the way of all other hackneyed cam¬pus undertakings. But it is just another gesture of defeat, of ad¬mission of ability to finish what was given a good start. We haveseen interest in athletics subside, we have witnessed campus publica¬tions under the knife of student apathy, we have seen clubs thatheld our great promise decay into obscurity. Perhaps the few whoare struggling to keep Settlement Drive going will keep it up.But it is up to us: do we want a Settlement Drive? Tonight’senthusiasm will go far in such a declaration.BREAK TRADITIONOF VARIETY BILLFOR NEW SHOWS(Continued from page 1)Men Plaved Cards As Women Do".Virginia Ratcliffe and her troupe ofMirror choristers will provide entre-acte dance specialties.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1928Page THreeTHE WEEKLY REVIENotes on Society and the Arts for the Well-InformedON THE BOARDS |“THE FIVE O’CLOCK GIRL”Playing at the WoodsReviewed by Iris Goodman“The Five O’Clock Girl” is the firstmusical comedy that I have seen since“Good News”. Drawing my conclu¬sions from these two good shows, itwould seem that plots of musicalcomedies though still only light andfrivolous, are becoming more compli¬cated and more psychologically sound.“Five O’clock Girl” is the story ofa girl who calls up a man at the sametime each evening. He believes herto be a charming young lady (and soshe is) and wealthy (which she isnot.) Flattered by her attentions, heplans a grand reception for her. Plansof course are upset when his ex-ladyfriend now engaged to another manenters and almost spoils the pre¬planned reception for the “FiveO’clock Girl.” Everything comes outall right in the end and everyonemarries the right person, which is anexcuse for prettier and mor gorgeousbrides’ and bridemaids’ gowns.Mary Eaton as the “Five O'clockGirl is charming at any time, thoughfive o’clock is her hour. In the roleof a slightly individualized Cinderella,unwittingly taken for an heiress shecaptivates her audience and does all theother things described by pleasant ad¬jectives, that denote clever acting andpleasing femininity. The chorus,though they wear their clothes well,did not dance so well the night Isaw them but they tell me they haveimproved.Shaw and Lee provide many of thelaughs and the valet (Jack Norton)and the cleaning shop girl Susan Snow(Pert Kelton) are inimitable both be¬cause of the parts they portray andby reason of their remarks.The singing is far better than thedancing. The songs principally theking that are “snappy” but not tune¬ful enough to be remembered the nextmorning. “Thinking of You” and “Upin the Clouds” at the time seemedthe best.“THE FRONT PAGE”Showing at the AdelphiReviewed by Alden Steven*This affair is so fast and so rau¬cous it makes “College Humor” looklike the Christian Science Mentor.The audience hardly ceases to gaspfor breath throughout the play,though this is not wholly due to thepace. Probably more words are spok¬en per minute in THE FRONTPAGE than in any other play in Chi¬cago.The play deals with the activitiesand obscenities indulged in by agroup of newspaper men on the eveof an election which is almost recog¬nizable. The candidates for re-elec¬tion, who are anxious about the ne¬gro vote, are almost ready to hangan anarchist who has killed a ne¬gro policeman, when they are foiledby the prisoner’s escape, and, inci¬dentally, perhaps, by a last minutereprieve. A love story is run in,for some reason, and lots and lots ofshooting and shouting and runningaround.Mr. Roger Pryor, who plays theleading man, is a hard-workingyoung fellow. In fact it may be saidthat he is as busy as a cat on a tinroof from first to final curtain. How¬ever, being of a steady if excitabledisposition, and blessed with perfectequanimity, he handles, almost with¬out congestion, a new wife, a moth¬er-in-law, a sheriff, an escaped mur¬derer, a boss, four telephones (twoof them at the same time), a rolltop desk, a typewriter, a scrub wom¬an, a mayor, twp hundred and sixtydollars, and a’great many anachron¬isms if the dste of the play is,stated, 1912.AIRPLANES REPLACEANCIENT “LIZZIES”OF CAMPUS FAME“Collegiate” airplanes must not fol¬low in the footsteps of the rheumatic,wheezing “Lizzie” for several yearsfashionable on campuses, was thewarning given by Edward P. Warner,assistant secretary of the Navy, incharge of aviation, in an address be¬fore the Third Intercollegiate Aviationconference at Yale University. Thethrills of flying make the chuggingFord comparatively tame, but notenough to compensate for the dangerof untrustworthy planes.The dangerous element is evidentlynot detracting from the general inter¬est in aviation. The college studentis taking to the air as easily as a duckto water.

Onlysix more weeks of opera remain beforethe’ company stages its last perform¬ance, and then begins its^annual postseason tour to the principal cities of jthe United States. jWith the exception of two or threeartists still to be heard, the week’srepertoire embraces the entire per¬sonnel of the company, all cast in theroles in which they have earned the jacclamation of critics from all overthe world.“Don Giovanni”, Mozart’s delight¬ful composition, scheduled for Wed¬nesday evening, December 12, will bethe first performance of this melodiouswork since the 1926-27 season, when jit was revived after a lapse of almost!eleven years. This opera taxes theresources of all but the great operacompanies on account of the largecast.Other operas to be presented nextweek are “Lakme”, “Boris Godounoff”,“Caveileria Rusticana”, “Don Giovan¬ni” and “Otello”. “Lakme” will bepresented on Sunday afternoon, theothers in the evening.Art Institute UsesMovies As ModelsThrough the use of moving picturestaken from living models the schoolof the Art Institute expects its stu¬dents drawing from the pictures toput into their life-studies a movementand vitality that heretofore has beensometimes lacking.Attempts have previously been madeto secure the affect of moving picturesby having a model go through insuccession a series of motions or pos¬tures. A moving picture however canrepeat a movement time after timewith much greater precision. Con¬sequently, as work supplementary todrawing from living models, films arebeing made showing models in action.It is hoped that drawing from suc¬cessive runs of the picture will bringabout concentration, keenness of ob¬servation and vivid draftsmanship.Ancient AlmanacsAmuse Visitors toRare Book RoomBy Charles H. GoodNone of the volumes in the RareBook Room on the fourth floor ofHarper library are more fascinatingthan the almanacs, in one cornerof a case opposite the entrance.Some of them are cheaply printedon poor and almost disintigrated pa¬per while others have gilt edges andare bound in embossed leather.The word almanac, a note care¬fully pasted in one of the leatherbound copies tells us, originally re-feiTed to Arabian books of astrologywhich entered Europe'by the way ofSpain and the Moors The same notesays that the first almanac in themodern sense was published in Eng¬land in 1673. If that note is correctthe little volume in the Rare BookRoom entitled “Prognostication con¬cerning Husbandry and physic forevery moneth in the yeere,” and dat¬ed 1646, cannot be considered a realalmanac, although it contains in¬formation similar to that still put inalmanacs.American AlmanacsThe American almaiiacs are themost amusing and interesting, al¬though they are badly printed andalmost falling apart with age. Thereare a number of them, all contain¬ing a weird miscellany of pseudo¬scientific information and would-beI entertaining reading matter.An almanac put out at Newbury-Port in 1782 by Daniel George in¬cludes advice on how to cure theitch alongside its forecast for theweather. It suggests washing thefeet as a cure for corns, and forbaldness it advocates rubbing thehead first with an onion and thenwith honey.Finn’s Comic Almanac for 1835 |has a cartoon cover showing one 'man demanding the time with a i“What’s a clock?” and another |pointing to his embroidered stocking [and saying “Look at my stocking.” jThe same almanac says that it is like ;a vessel laden with ‘ Old Jamaica” |because it is full of Rum Puns. |One of the almanacs, that pub- ,lished by Isaiah Thomas at Wor¬cester, Mass., for the year 1780,achieved enormous repute as aweather prophet. .The story goesthat when the printer’s boy asked jThomas what to forcast for July 13he was told to say anything, andpromptly set “rain, hail and snow.”By some freak of nature it really idid rain, hail and snow that July ,13.Around TownCollege men will be college boys.It’s a lucky thing for a goodly num¬ber of local hosteleries who furnishthe music and the dim lights for anevening of dance. iSaturday nights at the Drake— Istill a tradition for the college manaround town.

But there the simile must end,for a pipe is sweetly scented!And then the Meersham, the ul¬timate goal of all good pipe smok¬ers, sickly white in color in its in¬fancy as the flesh on a dead girlsarm' yet with age and tender caremellow into a dull, deep black, verysweet to smoke and very beautifulto behold.But enough of pipes! Let us turnto the gentle art of smoking. A pipeshould never be hurriedly packedand lit merely for the reaction ofthe nicoteen. A cigarette is but atemporary stimulant; a good pipeshould be smoked as a ceremony.First the tobacco: in my humbleopinion it should be a mild roughcut hurley blend with just enough“bite” to blend with the hot woodin such a manner that the smokerolls on the tongue smooth andmellow with a body to it as of oldChianti.Roll the tobacco between thepalms of the hands until it has be¬come impregnated with their warmthand then, the packing. This is thecrucial test of the experienced pipesmoker The amateur will hurriedlycram the amber granules into themaw of his pipe as if it were acriminal offence of some sort; and,to the man who does appreciate agood pipe it is an offence. The manwho loves a pipe will gently and ten¬derly fill his bowl, tapping the to¬bacco in with gentle little pats un¬til at last it is charged to the verybrim and packed firmly and smooth¬ly in such a manner that it will notsprinkle from the bowl and yet willbe loose enough to draw easily. Andthen! The light, and the first long,cool puff! Nirvanah attained!There are in a day four pipeswhich supercede all others in theirsweetness: the one just as youawake before you even start to dress,the first one after breakfast, thefirst one after dinner as the dark¬ness draws near, and the last longdrawn out smoke before retiring,where you knock the dottle out intothe hearth, stretch and turn tobed ....Truly a pipe is the gift of theGods!One-Act Plays toFeature Cube BillA poetical drama, “The SweetMeat Game,” on the pattern of earlyChinese plays, is included in theprogram of three one-act piays to bepresented by the “Now and ThenPlayers,” a visiting group, tomor¬row and Sunday nights at the Cube,1538 E. 58th Street, “Wrong Num¬bers” by Essex Dane and “The ManWho Married a Dumb Wife,” by An-atole France are the other plays tobe given.The headquarters of the Now andThen Players are at the Central Y.M.

When she concludedher program with the allegoricalplay, I even expected her to punch atime clock.The sole justification for the read¬ing platform today is to make it pos¬sible for an audience to understandthe subtlest shades of meaning of aselection which is lost in dramatiza¬tion. It should take place from theneck up: its secret is simplicity, oras the coloquial would have it, “inbeing yourself.” However, for a lit¬tle more than an hour, St. Vincentflitted about the stage of Mandel,awkwardly tripping over the train ofher gown, rearranging the stage toher liking, attempting a Ruth Dra¬per that sadly fell short of its mark.She looked about as comfortable asa Frenchman in Algiers. She indulg¬ed in a coughing fest which, I think,she affected so as to pull off hercoughing joke. At time it took hermany minutes of suspended thoughtto decide just what poems to readthough she gave a set program al¬most identical with last year’s savefor a few poems inspired by JudgeThayer and Governor Fuller. And ;when she did read she assumed ahigh and mighty tone to her ratherpleasing voice, as if to say, “I amnow reading immortal verse.” Howmuch more effective it would havebeen for her to have taken her list¬eners under her wing and spokenher selections in a sincere, conver¬sational manner. Instead, she rude¬ly discounted the imagination andintelligence of her audience.Some may hail Edna St. VincentMillay as America’s foremost wom¬an poet, but when it comes to read¬ing—well, I like my poetry unadul¬terated.SOCIAL NOTESBy Alice TorreyThis week-end Settlement Nightis the all consuming topic of inter¬est.

E. S.I OFF THE PRESS |“PENELOPE’S MAN”By John ErskineReviewed by Ann LevinA good many years ago, John Er¬skine set himself to the task of writ¬ing books. And judging from our ownuniversity, it must have been secondnature. For Erskine is—or was—aprofessor. Like many other profs, hefound that his books went to librariesfar more than they graced privateshelves. That was noble, but not veryremunerative. The general public—which is a more delicate way of re¬ferring to the sources of money—didn’t take to them.Erskine, having his wits about him,bethought himself of something else.And so “Galahad”, “Helen of Troy”,“Adam and Eve”, and now “Pene¬lope’s Man” came to be written. Forthe first time people began really tonotice the author. And now everyoneis so educated that “Erskine 6” hasan association all its own. Unfortun¬ately the original wit is repeated in-,stead of expanded. The first bookdealt with the “love life” of familiarmythological characters; all the bookssince then have crawled along on thesame theme. Supposedly, they are thekind of storied that the “public wants”.Which is self explanatory.“Penelope’s Man” is a series of ad¬ventures in which Odysseus takespart. The other characters are almostexclusively women. And one manwith so many women, each alone onher own island, is just bound to bepopular. Odysseus is. But Penelope,Circe, and Calypo all talked exactlylike Lilelh, of “Adam and Eve’’ fame.Odysseus, in all his wanderings, shouldhave done better than that, really. Butwhat could one expect from a manas dumb as Adam and as smugly con¬ceited. So Odysseus is rather satis¬fied with himself.The setting is supposedly ancient.But in order to please the moronswho receive the book as a Xmas gift,everything is jazzed and modernizedto an extreme. There is scarcely any¬thing left to the reader’s imagination.At first, the novel way of treatingcharacters in mythology seemed ratherclever. But when it repeats iteslf inso thin a disguise in three successivebooks, the whole idea begins to pall.And then the novel shows itself forwhat it is worth; merely a sensationalnovel full of implied sex experiences.There are in Erskine’s novels threestriking repititions that occur to anannoying extent.1. Women are so grateful for aman; they are all anxious for the“blessing of motherhood”. And theyeven embarrass the poor hero withtheir straightforward method of goingabout things.2. At least one woman in the novelis clever, the hero’s wife or last affin¬ity is mediocre, and the man himselfis an imbecile of the first degree.3. All characters speak in so strik¬ingly similar a way that they givethe impression of puppets with a mas¬ter puppet speaking for all of them.The whole is rather effeminate andunconvincing.Occasionally, there is a cleverthought in the novel. That is, if thereader has not read any of the otherErskine novels, he may discover clev¬erness. The way in which the godsalways tell the woman who eventuallygrow tired of Odysseus, that fate wish¬es him elsewhere is rather amusing.Particularly when one god has a littlemustache and was formerly a loverof her whom he advises. Penelope,the long-suffering wife, also betraysthe faintest glimmer of humor in herretort to her husband’? insistence thatfate had kept him away so long, “Fate?What was her last name?”On the whole, “Penelope’s Man” isa rather vacuous attempt to carrymythology into the present. Nothingrisque is said right out loud—Himmel,no!—but the “great American public”is well-educated along those lines,thanks to authors like Erskine.Page FourTHE DAILY MAROON, FRIDAY. DECEMBER 7, 1928PROFESSOR PLATTHEADS UNIVERSITYWORKERS, MEXICOFifteen trained field workers fromthe University, headed by ProfessorRobert S. Platt spent six weeks ofextensive field work in the heart ofagricultural Mexico. Their aim wasto gather material for a book on “Oc¬cupancy Patterns of Population inRelation to the Natural Environ¬ment of the Valley of Mexico.”Little sciientific work has beendone in the human geography of theregion around Mexico City. TheUniversity workers analyzed typicalcommunities in the Valley, particul¬arly in the Teotihuecan district, andmade a broad survey of the highlandagricultural territory. Arriving atTorreon, Mexico a study of the cot¬ton and cattle haciendas was madebefore proceeding to Mexico Citywhich became their headquarters forthree weeks of reconnaissance in thesurrounding districts, particularlyPachusa, Toluca, Cuernavaca andPuebla.the natives is also important for itscontribution to their present status,”says Professor Platt. “A large pro¬portion of the peon class are Indianswhose precolumbian culture wasequal to that of the better knownMayas in the lowland districts. Theirancient culture, represented in themonuments and pyramids of the cen¬tral plateau their present sta¬tus as a conquered race, have an im¬portant bearing on the central prob¬lem.”The members of the expedition,wtih the exception of Professor Plattare graduate students of geographywho have had experience in Ameri¬can field work. Eight of them arewomen. Miss Alice Foster, one ofthe graduates and Professor Platt,have already published material onMexican human geography.The expedition returned Septem¬ber 3rd.of a big daily an editorial, a cartoonand a Washington “news” dispatch,seems reasonable to conclude that anall done from the same viewpoint. Iteditorial council directed this triplebombardment of the reader.If the reader were consulted heprobably would say that he wantsthe news, the dear old news, toldwith truth and clarity and not withspecious coloration. He expects edi¬torial opinion in the editorials, buthe would like his news straight.ARE DAIUES LESSINDEPENDENT THANWEEKLY PAPERS?Each Worker Assigned LocalityThe general method was to assigneach worker to a particular portionof the locality being studied, to makemaps and charts of population dis¬tribution, social and economic or¬ganization, transportation facilities,exchange of products and relatedproblems, these maps and reportswill be fitted together for a generalreport. According to Professor Plattthis method of combining construc¬tive research work with the trainingof advanced students is new, hav¬ing been introduced by the Univer¬sity’s geographers two years ago.From Mexico City the party pro¬ceeded to the coffee haciendas andpower plant at Orizaba, to the ban¬ana and sugar haciendas around VeraCruz, to San Louis Potosi, Tmpicoand to Monterey before returning tothe United States.“Though we are particularly in¬terested in the existing conditionsin agricultural Mexico, particularlyin the typical semi-isolated commun¬ities, the historical background ofThat the weekly newspapers aremore independent than the dailiesand give their readers more facts isthe opinion of M. E. Tracy, editorialcolumnist for the Scripps-Howardnewspapers.Mr. Tracy believes that the mod¬ern daily is giving its readers lessfact and more “viewpoint” than everbefore.Many close students of dailynewpsaper with agree with him. Toomany of the first page stories in mod¬ern dailies are thinly disguised edi¬torials. One sees in the same issueHe gets in .the Associated Pressdispatches; but emphatically he doesnot get it in the bylined stories.Mr. Tracy mentions the McNary-Haugen bill as an example. Alll thegreat dailos have fulminated for itor against it. Scarcely one of themhas told its readers just what are itsprovisions and how they would havefunctioned had the bill become a law.Mr. Tracy believes that the firstand most important business of thenewspaper is news, “and that if onephase of its activities deserves moreemphasis than another it is ordinarystraightforward reporting.” Te alsobelieves that the smaller papers, es¬pecially the weeklies, are far moreindependent and far more closely intouch with popular sentiment thanthe big dailies.CARNEGIE CAMPUSTESTS POPULARITY OFCHEWING GUM FAD“Not .so hot”—verdict for No. 1.“.Absolutely terrible” — verdict forNo. 2.ELEVEN O’CLOCK AT NIGHTHungry!

Then fourunsuspecting victims were picked.First Beeman’s Pepsin was triedand the verdict was “Good”. ThenBeechnut merited an enthusiastic“Scrumtious”.

The third victimrather upset things by deciding infavor of Doublemint. The last victimwas approached with fear, but withoutthe slightest hesitation, he favoredBeechnut.The men on the campus decided thatone reason that the women were sopopular was because they invariablychewed Beechnut.

Since this prac¬tice has been discontinued thefaternities and sororities have suffered.The amounts lost range from $129 to$369.Large profits in the commissary de¬partments and corresponding losses inthe house departments are indicatedby a survey made by a commercestudent at Wisconsin. Room rents infraternity and sorority houses are, onthe whole, higher than in roominghouses, and more cquld not becharged. At the same time, the sur¬vey points out that a decrease inboard rates would be impractical forthe organizations.SING CAROLS ATY. W. CHRISTMASSERVICE TUESDAYCarols will be sung at the annualY. W. C.
