" 'Gratia, Senor' is much more gracious than, 'Thanks, mister,' isn't it?" asked Lillian Boz, who was born near Venice, Italy, and came to America when she was eight years old. In her opinion Italian is more musical and romantic as a language than English. English has a characteristically practical, business-like tone; however, very beautiful prose is possible. "When you think with a language you have it-I think in English." Miss Boz admits she could express herself more fluently occasionally if she could use an Italian phrase or two. However, now she writes Italian with more ease than she can speak it. She keeps in practice writing to all her relatlves in Italy. Just as there is more chivalry and courtesy in the Italian language, so

is there in the conduct of the people.

One is a crayon study entitled, "The Flatirons; Boulder, Colorado". The other is a rose vase entered in the pottery division. By means OJ signed ballots Peru art students definitely rejected this week the proposal to organize a chapter of Kappa Pi, national art fraternity. Results of the balloting showed, however, that some form of an art club was desired.

The majority of the students preferred an art club similar to that disbanded in 19-36 or a revival of the old club: The Art Club constitution was on dis~lay at the ballot box and possibly influenced several in its behalf. The American Federation of Arts was a c!Os~ second. With it are the privileges of a. subscription to the American Magazine of Art, two traveling art lectures with slides to illustrate and two traveling art exhibits each year. Since the results of the latter two were so close, a meeting of the eligible students will be held in the near future to definitely decide the issue.

DEBATE ENTHUSIASM SHOWN BY STUDENTS The debating season definitely started with a meeting of twelve interested people Friday, November 4, in the Little Theater. Professor Robert Moore, the debate coach discussed at this meeting the c;uestion, the amount and source of material to be assimulated and mast· erect and the debate schedule. This year's debate question has to do with government stimulation of business. It is better known as "pump priming." Professor Moore has received severa! invitations to tournaments, but the schedule is only tentative. rt will depend largely on the sustained interest and efficiency of the debaters. Besides the practice debates, plans are being made to attend three major tournaments before the state tournament. next spring. ".The interest shown and the available material to study is ·quite superior to that of last year, "Professor Moore commented today.

Through government assistance various c.ourses are greatly bene5.ted, but courses such as the SmithHughes would be better adapted if there weren't so much of that governmental assistance, thinkS Mr. Schindler. Also he thinks the teacher retiri;ment plan does much to protect not only the teacher but the younger students as well. The broadening of the tax base is another point to be considered for, says Mr. Schindler, "the spot ls not so white when you look at it from the educational point of view. '

THE BOUNCING BALL By Norman Littrell

The Bobcats still have a bad case of .fumbles-and it cost them another game. The first three running plays of the game found Peru fumbling, Wesleyan fumbling and Peru making a b'ld pass from center.

For the second time this season Coach Hall's inexperienced gridders stepped out of t.heir class to meet decis1ve defeat fac~ to fare; the other oci:a.sion was when the strong ~ebraska City club, whic'h later tled "Jug" Brown's Falls City teaih, emerged the victor 25-0. Peru's defeat might be labled too much Gale Gritz, because it was this slight built boy, who scored all of th~ Higginsmen's touchdowns. Gritz struck once in the first quarter, then crossed the goal line twice in the following period as Auburn used end



Come one-come all to the battle of Frosh Kittens vs. Mangy Bobcats! You have seen these fighters in seven football games and one play-now you can see them in a 4-act circus. The stage is set on the athletic field-the time is 3 :45, and the actors are to be costumed in football togs. The admission to see this circus of freaks and football thrills is only 10 cents or one d1J:ne---0ne-tenth of a dollar. Look what you will see for that wee bit of Uncle 8am's dough-re-me-an upperclass team playing their last game on Peru's field ·and a grand assortment of promising Peru players.

KODAK CLUB Robert Shuler, faculty sponsor, gave a demonstration of the various chemical reactions in reproducing film before a large number that attended a meeting of the Kodak Club last Thursday evening. He stressed that the procesio is not involved to such a de .. gree that amateurs cannot make it profitable. Officers elected for the coming year are Charles Pal'j.dise, president; Ferne Peterson, vice-president; Edgar Wiltze, secretary-treasurer. CRAWDADS The. fascinating game of water· polo combining skill with water holding capacity seemed to be the headliner of Crawdad activities. The water seems not to have dampened anyone's ardor because all old faces were presl)nt as well as some new ones PERSONALITY CLUB Timely discussion on makeup and hair dressing featured the Personality Club meeting a week ago. Geraldine Cordell led the discussion In a highly pleasing and informative manner. She was assisted in her demcnstration by Mildred Bolken. An above the average crowd in attendance came to the meeting ":hich is regularly held in t11e Training school building. LEARN TO DANCE Main efforts of the student instructors in the Learn to Dance club at their last meeting were directed towards ballroom decorum and increasing footwork of the members. New steps were introduced and tried while old steps were being directed again and again. A capacity crowd attended the meeting at which Eleanor Nieman played.

NEXT PLAY TRYOUTS SCHEDULED NOV. 14 Tryouts for the· next college play which will be given December 17, will begin the first part of this week said Professor Robert D. Moore, Head of the Speech Department. What play will be presented has not been definitely decided, but it will probably be, "Moonshine and Honeysuckle", by Lula Volmer, or "The Saturay Evening Ghost", by Tom Taggart. They are both cleverly written and highly recommended. The play selected to be presented was "Moonshine and Honeysuckles" by Lula Volmer. It is cleverly written and highly recommened. WINS SIX GAMES IN A ROW According to the Omaha World Herald, Comstock high is making a fine football record. Coach Earl Dasher's club dropped the first game to Sargent, then won the. next six.

ROSH CAMERA CLUB ~EVELOPS SNAP SHOTS Dancer's Party Plans Include College Band Members of the newly named Camera Club spent a very enjoyable meeting printing six rolls of film supplied by several of those present. A resolution was adopted whereby any person, upper-classman, freshman or faculty member, is invited to attend the meetings. Upon payment of fees, each is given the right to participate in activities other than membership and voting privileges. The motion calling for construction of a printing box was passed unanimously. Construction is to be car·ied on by members of the club and he cost is to be taken from the general fund. Noel Lundy was selected as the Club's reporter. LEARN TO DANCE 'The red letter night has been set or December 17. At that time many freshmen members of Learn-to-Dance Club will get a chance to show their alents as the annual fall party goes into swing. Cecil Walker's "Cornshellers" will provide the music. After making plans for this gal.a affair, the aspirants spent the remainder of the meeting by getting the real idea of dancing. Margery Evans, the piano player, gave her swing arrangement of the color song to which all danced and sang to close the evening's entertainment. PERSONALITY CLUB 27 members attending. Personality Club last Thursd~y rught _Jearned that personality 1s really d~splayed in part by the correct stylmg of clothes. Miss Dotothy Lavigne led an inter.esting discussion on this phase as to campus wear. Assisting her were members of the club acting as models. 'The program for the evening ineluded a piano solo by Grace Muenchau. Honor guest of the evening was Miss Grace Tear, general advisor of all freshmen clubs. As a contribution to. the club, she ·gave a talk on color combinations in relation to each individual's personality.

TED SHAWN COMPANY PRESENT 'O LIBERT AD' Ted Shawn With a company of eight presented the epic spirit of America in a dahce, "O Llbertad," Saturday night. All the music for the theme was composed and played by Jess Meeker. Act I. THE PAST 1. Noche Triste de Moetezuma 'The ~tee Emperor . . . . . . SHAWN The Bearer of Bad Tidings ....

'The opening scene depicted the fateful night when the invading Spaniards had invited a great number of that mighty Aztec' Emperor's chieftains to a magnificent banquet, in order to slay them treacherously. In an atmosphere of foreboding Moctezuma with his bodyguard of princes received the news of the disaster. He ordered the bearer of bad tidings to be used as a human sacrfiice and carving out the heart himself, read the omens of the god&-the unmistakable signs of the doom of his empire. Alone and grieving on his throne, he · heard the chant of Christian priests approaching. One of them, Father Olmedo, entered to present him the Cross to kiss. Meetezuma replied, "I have but a few days to live; and will not at this hour desert the faith of my fathers." Choosing this episode as the crucial moment of the impact of the European civil!zation upon the indigenous one, Mr. Shawn has created a dance scene of barbaric splendol and bitter tragedy. 'The second scene depicted a Good Friday celebration of a fanatic sect of iFran.ciscans;. while chrOMlogically out of order, it showed str!klng contrast the effect of the new civilization upon the indigenous peoples. Los Hermanos Penitentes, the penitent brotherhood, on each Good Friday lash themselves wit!). thongs into which cactus is woven, and going out to a lonely hill, crucify one of. their number. Sometimes the crucified one actually dies upon the cross; his shoes, taken from his feet, are borne to the doorStep of his parents, by which they learn the sad news.

the youth of America to the battle fields of France. 'The soldier himself, sincerely fooled by patriotic propaganda, continued to spread the gospel of hate abroad like poison gas until he finds himself in the trenches. In No Man's Land the group represented abstract elements of modern warfare, which the Soldier experienced, as symbol of the millions who fought and died. After hostilities ceased, the Soldier, wounded and broken, still believed he would return to his native land a hero. But everyone wanted to fcrget. The Soldier unabl~ to ~ontact his fellow men wandered off, lonely and forgotten, to a veterans home to die, embittered, his last illusion gone. Jazz Decade was depicted by eight masked figures in the cheap rhythms which were aftermath ·of the war. 'This frenzy mounted during a period of false prosperity until youths were frightened by Depression. "Modernism"' was Mr. Shawn's satire on the most fanatic of the "modern" dancers. Slipping out of the horrid robes of Depression arid revealing a costume ~ymholic of restored wealth and prosperity, he danced to the latest popular rhythm of todij-Y and did "Another Waltz in Swing Time" indicative of Recovery. Decathlon in Suite of Sport Dances depicted broad jump, shot put, discus, the hurdles, javelin,· running events, high jump and the pole vault. The act ended with most amusing and typically American outburst:; of htrnor--a "March of the Veteram of Futi re Wars" in which infant sol •le ·s paraded with bags of poppy seed, asking for the bonus due them for the wars they may have to fight in years to come.

According to Gilbert Muray, the Mo!'pal was the ancient art form which included rhythmic movement, instrumental music, singing poetry and drama. Strife, Love, Death and the 'Things Beyond Death constituted the subject matter of the ancient Molpai.

Dr. Jones has returned from India for a year for the purpose of leading similar missions throughout the universities of our country.

Friday night, January sixth, the fighting Bobkittens of Peru Prep won a thrill packed game that spelled drama with a capital D throughout its duration of play.

"Phog" Sheely's boys of the second team were not so successful, losing their first game of the immature season 17-12. Hayes starred for Prep, lea.cling the Prep scorers with six counters. Banks, Auburn forward, led the game scoring with eight markers. Phog says, "Don't be discouraged,

As the name implies, biology is the science of life. Life itself carries with it a dependence on mathematics. The nature of the vast majority of all forms of life .are of a geometric structure. The Mendelian principle of heredity involves a knowledge of ratio."

In pointing out the dependence of psychology on mathematics, Mr. Huck quoted from the Weber-Fechne law as a direct application of the fundamental concept of proportion. He also showed of the value of mathematics in computing intelligence scores, in the comiling of statistics and in interpretIng statistical date. The relationship between mathematics and architecture is of a very close

making the balancing a budget Ill known to all, and this, too, requires a working knowledge of mathematics. "The aesthetic values of mathematics are closely allied with our everyday afta!rs. The beauties in nature display the aesthetics of mathematics." In conclusion, Pro!. Huck quoted from Dr. David Eugene Smith's "Mathematics in the Training !or C1tizenship", "Let us now Imagine, if we can, that by some cataclysm there should be wiped off the face of the earth tonight every book on mathe· matics, every mathematical symbol of any kind, every written page or printed sheet upon which a trace oJ mathematics appears, and every machine for computing or recording numbers. What would happen? Every mlll in the whole world would slow down and every large concern would close until it could replace its accounts, its statistical material, its formulas for work, its measures ,its tables, and its computing machinery. Every ship on the seven seas would be stricken with blindness

a skyscraper, because the steel girders would have lost their numbers; Wall Street would close its portals, the engineering would awaken tomorrow morning to a living death, the mines would shut down, and trade would relapse to the condition of barter as in the days of savagery. It ls a picture that is so ridiculous that we smile at its very impossibility. But it is a real picture, ridiculous though it seems.a picture of the world sending forth s. O. S. for help, a hurry call for the return of poor old mathematics, the unseen guest at every transaction, the silent listener to every conversation, the patient observer of every motion, and the ceaseless, sleepless guardian of every thought and deed."

Alter Appearance of P.S.'T.C. Campus Buildings

Superstition Rides in Friday "the thirteenth" Program , Friday the 13th was a very appropriate day for the one-act play, "Swamp Spirit" given for convocation by Professor Robert Moore's elementary dramatics class. The haunting "Chloe" interpreted by Marjorie Evan's piano solo and the darkened auditorium gave eerie atmosphere to the play. "Swamp Spirit" was founded on an actual event in the pioneer history of southeastern Missouri. When Spain was a power in the new world, a man attempted to found an empire with New Madrid, Missouri, as it's capitol, but plans for the empire failed from lack of support.

BY ALICE peVORE Did you ever notice the old house just across the street north from the photograph studio? In it, you will see the humble beginnings of our college. Or did you ever notice the picture of a large house, hanging '.JD the east wall cf the college offlce? It is a piv ture of the present Mu~ic hall at birtL As it appears there, it was the president's residence. Then it became the library, with the addition of a wing. Later wing number two was addedafter a library was built-and the building became the science hall. After our present Science Hall was built, it stood vacant for a few years. Then it was remodeled to make the Music Hall of today. That building has served its purpose well.

The scene of the play was laid in the two-room log-cabin, home of Nathan Hanks in the Niggerwool Swap of southeastern Missouri in the early 1800's one night in late fall. Down through the ages, mankind has always fought an unending fight against nature. Many times nature has conquered him and crushed him under her feet, never to rise again. There, in that valley of the Missouri, man has fought such a fight against tremendous odds. Within this drama the forces of superstition and the spirit of the swamp itself, struggle against enlightenment. Predorninent in this struggle was the spirit of the swamp with death, plague, forbidding forests, and mysteries as powerful as its weapons. Frank Summers as Nathan Hanks, an early settler who believed his blindness was due to a spell cast by the swamp spirit, was as vivid as that of Mary Olive Richardson as Martha, his aged mother, who lived in mortal fear of the hideous powers of the swamp. Mary Liz Weiner, as Chloe, a mysterious girl whose personality wa.s held portrayed captive by the swamp Spi•i't u her superstition ridden existence superbly. Dean Karr as old Nathan's haughty son was a.n extreme contrast but still a lilave to his former life.

The site of the Science Hall is where the first Training School stood. The infirmary was once the home of the head janitor. The gymnasium once served in that capacity as well as a chapel. A stage was at the south end, and seats for the audience at the north end. The gym, floor much smaller than now, had goals at the east and west. There was also a balcony at the north, part of the braces of which remain. At this time, there was also an outside entrance to the swimming pool, from the front of the gym below the center windows. This was filled in quite recently.

Enthusiasm reached a new high at 'convocation Friday during the performance of "Swamp Spirit." The news~vritino- class exam is this "Ped" with Genevieve Far:iott as Guest Editorb and Alice De Vore as As:>istant ;Ed'1tor. Did we flunk, Miss Martin? "What's the matter with Peru?" I According to an editorial of a 1937 issues_,of the "Ped," P. S. T. C. needed rn the worst way three things: a men's dormitory, intramural acti,yities, and milder freshmen initiations. ·The initiations were as mile! as\this January weather, from here I can hear the gono· and the referee's whistle pun'ctuating the cheers as an intramural game progresses, and the boysl dormitory is coming up! . Accorcling to 1937 standards the response of the cheer leading section to "\VHAT'S TfIE MATTER WITH PERU?" is "SHE'S ALL RIGHT!" By the time the cheer leader demands "SAY IT :''G."IN" ,., • we ' ve rea l'1ze d th ere are a· num b er of other th1'ngs we need this 1939 model. .

Campus sentiment a~ expr~s~ed in the column Kampus ,K~iz give~ us the gong on school spmt and. suggests a Student Umon Building as the answer for invigorating us with "wim, wigor and 'witalitv." • · School spirit is a unifvin2' and dominating feeling of oneness."

More events like the W .A.A. sports: review, booster nights, all-college folk dancing in the gym, revival of May Fete, mixed sports recreatiqn in gym, including the swimming pool, are some ideas.

Recognized! A vote of thank~ to Coach Arthur Jones and "Spec" Nelson for f unpraised efforts and limitless time given by each to sustain a valued cause. They are combining their efforts to promote and direct a system of intramurals· such as has not been equaled in recent years. College men, who ordinarily would receive little if any healthfuR exercise are banded together in teams which at the present time are playing basketball. Games are scheduled for float periods1 and the competitive spirit runs high. Then, too, some man unsung for the varsity squad is given a chance to show his wares and not a few have worked part way up the ladder. Coach Jones and Mr. Nelson must be present at all games in order to make them function properly and it also falls upon them to look for boysi a little better than the average. Reports are fileclf of each game. At the end of the round-robin session, the winner will be given.a suitab_le trophy. , You can see these men have a job. -R. M Ho; Hum! Don't you ever stop . ro wonder why everyone begins to rush about wildly, why you can't find an ~:t11pty seat in the library, why the alarm clocks1in the dormitory go,,i;Jff from three a. m. until any hour before noon, and why everyone goes about with that pensive look? Well my not-too-wide awake freshman, you too, will catch this dangerous illness-too, too, shortly, For, wiith the end of the seme~ter, comes the chalking up of the fir~t page of your college life. But just a minute! Stop thinking about your grades Jong enough to wonder what you have actually accomplished. Maybe your grade card will show up a bright array of A's. If so, good enough, but don't let that be your goal. Instead, take inventory of your personal traits. Have you learned, in one semes:ter, that the art of living with others lies within the golden rule? Or' are you the type that believes in tootlng your own horn, so that you can drown out the rest of the band? Can you speak with the rnme friendliness to the most popular fellow in your class and the one who is shy and awkward? It takes a lot of "stuff" to give your personality a houseclean'.ng, but your college education should mean more than a few textbooks. our main object in life is to LIVE! To do so in the besf ;:iossible manner, you must adjust yourself to the world in which you intend to live. You say you're an A student? How do the traits which are YOU stack up? -M. K.

ALPHA PSI HOLDS FORMAL INITIATION Alpha Psi Omega will give formal initiation to new members at Helen Margaret Larson's home Wednesday at 6:30 o'clock. The informal initiation was held previously. 'The new members are: Dorothy Ann Coatney of Peru; Dean Karr of Hamburg, Iowa; Mary Liz Werner of Nebraska City; Mary Olive Ri.chardson of Fairbury; Virginia Trively of Plattsmouth and Frank Summers of Peru. The Alpha Psi Omeg·a fraternity will have full charge of stage management, cm:struction and desig·n for the play, "Moonshine and Honeysuckle." They also will start work immediately on the radio play to be given in the near future. -----Y. w. c. A. MEMBERSHIP DRIVE 'The Y. w. c. A. membership drive for the second semester has started. We hope to have a bigger and better Y. W. C. A. this second semester and you can help. 'I'he drive will be climaxed by a big party on Tuesday, Jan. 24. 'The dues for a semester are 50 cents and a membership tag will be given you when you pay them. Get one and be one of the crowd. 'There will be a Y. W. c.

For payment of dues, see Helen Wilberger, Marjorie Hull, Doris Carnahan, or Nadine Naeve.


Once upon a time there were two rats. They were very, very nice rats until they were led astray by Mr. Shuler during a physiology and hygiene demonstration. Having been on the water wagon all his life, Henry just couldn't hold his liquor like a nice rat should. Since he could not guzzle from a bottle, he was placed in a gla,ss bell jar and fumes of the beverage were sent into him. The rubber tubing that carried the vapor hung from the top of the "jug" and Henry leaned up against and clung to it with his paw for all the world like a traditional lamp-post Gus. At no time did he get "happy". Alcohol seemed to make him very tearful and sad. He constantly kept putting his paws to his .eyes and rubbing them down over his face. William Powell couldn't have done a better job of staggering. Finally Henry subsided into a deliberate and serious attack of hiccoughs. Josephine was given some chloroform. She danced on her hind legs excitedly at first with much the same vigor as Henry. That state of excitability characteristic to both drugs makes it necessary for you to be strapped to the table .before you are relleved of your appendix. Only a few utes were nee~ed to ma~e her drowsy and awkward m her motions. Alcoholic drowsiness was a great deal longer in arriving. Josephine was completely "tinder" and was taken out to reii:ain c@sciousness.

Fads and figures: Here are a few more facts about Peru from 1921-38 as disclosed by my wanderings in records and tabulations. Peru's low average in this 18 year period was 16.7 in 1922 while the opposition only tallied 14.7 in 1923. The high number of points by a Peru team was in 1938 when McCormick and Halla-. day led the scoring of 854 points. The low was in 1921 with 151 points. Opposistion's high was in '38 with 673 and the low in 1921 with 132.

Omaha U. Conquerors Meet Defeat from Peru 5


Education Series .'!' he influence of a recent series of discussions in the Nebraska Edcicational Journal 'Whither Music sducation" h as :n ad e itself l:nown through a number of fan letters received by the author, Professor G. H. Steck. In these articles Prof. Steck has ventured to show that the present highschool graduate is poorly qualified for further M)rk toward music teaching because of the inadequate ~raining offered by the highschool music courses. Students acquire a flippant attitude toward music as if it were something to "play at" rather than to enjoy and appreciate. Prof. Steck contends that children are urged to participate in many musical activities, are encouraged to buy expensive instruments and, as a result, reach no degree of efficiency in any one line of musical interpretation. In the forthcoming issues of the Nebraska Education Journal Prof. Steck will present a plan whereby music education may be improved to include an inspirational value to the pupils-through which students can be led to appreciate music because of the actual enjoyment attached. After reading the articles, the editor of the Educational Music Magazine published in Chicago, Illinois, states: "I believe that the message you are furthering should be brought to the attention of music educators over the entire country. What you say applies to a wider field than Nebras~a. From Chadron comes the remark: "Your article in the current Nebraska Educational Journal is worthy of high recommendation. Its thesis finds a hearty seconding from me."

The clarinet quartette, composed of Wendell Burbridge, Gordon Hallenbeck, Jean Vosberg and Donna Steffen played "Gavottee Classique" by Gueris.

The meeting was lead by Mr. Cone, Superintendent of Dunbar Highschool. The topic discussed. at this meeting· was, "How may a school take the objectives of education and put them into practice." Three ways of doing this were discussed. 1. To take the objectives and list them on a threepoint scale for measurement. 2. Giving occupational information attitude tests. 3. Making a careful analysis of ~he courses offered in the schools and testing the results for benefits. The fundamental purpose of the organi·zati·on i's to measure and "take the temperature" of secondary schools according to objectives arrived at by re. · t 1 d at ports of th e ach ievemen s a rea Y tained by various schools Also, to put into practice theories of education for secondary schools. It is hoped by the organization that due to their success ·and achievements, graduate credit will be offered by the University of Nebraska for their work and effort.

Two years ago it was stopped for financial reasons and a historical pageant directed by Pi-cf. D. J. Nabors, who was then Peru d:·amatic instructor, was substituted.

1939 MUSIC CONTEST INSURES HUGE CROWD Officials Find Necessary To Secure More Judges This year's M.I.N.K. Ml!sic Contest enrollment is exceeding all expectations. So many contestants have entered at the present time that the contest officials are finding it necessary to get more judges than they had planned to use. The contest is scheduled for the coming weekend, March 10 and 11. Even though a 25 cent fee is being charged for each soloist entered, it now appears that there will be as many solos as there wel\,in the 1937 contest. In fact, some of the. events are already larger than in 1937. The clinic system, a new idea in Peru contests, holds the center of attention. The large number registered for each of the four clinic groups, band, orchestra., girls' glee club and boys' glee club, will make it impossible for one director to handle all the instruction. Therefore, the heads of each of the groups will use highschool music supervisors to help in the direction of the group. The heads of the clinics are Superintendent S. L. Clements, band; Professor V. H. Jindra, orchestra; Professor R. T. Benford, girls' glee club; and Professor G. Holt Steck, boys· glee club. Some of those who w1·11 help ar·e·. J. H.

DR. BEADLE Of N.Y.U. TALKS ON SAFETY Speaker Tells Students None are Accident Immune

Only fifty invitations were issued to the leaders in this field in the colleges and universities of the United States. These men will participate in a round table discussion led by people of international prominence in the field. The Endowment will pay all the expenses of transportation for the delegates. This International Peace Endowment was founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1910. Mr. Carnegie set aside a fund of $10,000,000 in five per cent bonds, the income cf which was to bro used in the abolition of war. The Endowment is divided into three divisions: Intercourse and Education, Economics and History and International Law. The last division is under the direction of James Brown Scott who has served as secretary of the Endowment since 1911. It is in this division that Dr. Bi'own will work.

It all brings to mind the old saying that what the Great American Public doesn't know ·won't hurt it. And it makes one fervently believe that the public believes everything that does happen to come its way via the ether waves and the cinematic sound track. It

Perhaps, it is my insane de,;ire to be different, but I earnestly ··ontest the so-called supremacy of anyone that uses public property -in this case, the air vva\·es-for propagandic gossip instead of pub;ic good.
