The : Supreme Court Takes ilw, Bail Fur a moment it looked us if the Supreme Court's decision (o (five a little study to intercollegiate football would have' the cfl'ecl, once 1111 opinion had keen delivered, of crossinif the -subject ofl' the list of handy issues for dinner-table iirguinuhUiliun. Most people have already made up (heir•minds, of course, on whether college football is a eommeranl activity, but a number still can Ije found on what might be called the other side, and it looked at first glance as if ;i , comi decision might bury the .subject ' for good. ',A second look, though, changed the ; picture completely. The kstie is not whether inlorcollejfuilc football is a "yigantic coniniorcial activity" or a necessity of higher education, bill whether it is (ho • former or "an essential governmental function." This just, presents everybody with an entirely new subject (o light about between now and the court's arrival at a decision, and leaves the olil issue to go right on being, cause'for hair-pull-' ing. The new issue .should provide much better conveivHiUomil Jarc than (ho old. The government is, appealing a circuit court's decision favoring the "essential governmental" theorv he- t'KilseHhat decision took' away ''trie fed- . eral right to impose a tax on : t.|i(Mfm')l-. ball gate receipts.

State universities play football with other states' universities, ff foutliall is-mi essential governmental function, why couldn't inter-stale football be regarded as. a function of the federal government? Jf the Supreme Court decides the Kama is a govcrninenlal fimclioti, and Hie government-is still contending it's a, "gigantic commercial activity," keep your ears open for the ,,|,| i m! ig,.;inl; yell: "Take the government' out of business!

But before Ihe meal wap over he left the dining room, taking his sneezes wilh him s <> t| 1; u ll, c others might enjoy their own dinner in quiet, As long as he sal here, they waited expectantly. Holding their hreath, for each new outbreak. < * * * CO it was Mr. Gregory who took Joyce up (o the dunce on deck nix! perhaps, she decided that was as it should be because she was wearing his flowers. After (he lirst dance Captain Boyer came forward to claim Joyce. ' "The only trouble" lie remarked gallantly, as he' proved miiself a morc-lhan-capablc master of the waltx, "is that there arc so many lovely young ladies that we can t dance with all of them." Joyce laughed, enjoying the moment. "Why not try a Paul J" ncs .''" she suggested carelessly. You rl get around more," "A Paul Jones?" Captain lio.yci searched his meinorv for Ihe raining of it. Then recalling, he ddcrl brightly: "Of course: That's ic dance where we all change >arttiers, isn't it? Why didn't t liitik of it before?" Ihc- linncc ended, lie went over and made the suggcslion to the orchestra leader before rc- luiDiiig Joyce to her table. f'iaiiy (lie orchCEtro leader blew it whistle and called the changes: "Siligle line, now, and MARCH! Hands (jii slioulders" . . , "i,adics I'lghl, fScnUcJiicn lefl" . . . "Find your )>artncrs!" Faster aiid faster the music was slepped up; more and more hilarious became Ihe dancing. Joyce went through the changes, her cheeks Hushed, smiling in bright abandon because she did nol realize that anything so gay as a Paul Jones might bring its difficulties. * * « r r"llUN Joyce, stepping along merrily, hand over hand, looked down the line of approaching men and caught her breath. 'Lord!" she thought, "look what's " very center of it, while those alioiit paused for a moment to applaud his efforts. Right and lefl went the dancers, and presently new partners found each other quickly at (lie sound of the whistle, And still Joyce danced wilh Napoleoii O'lfara. Now, prancing past the captain, lie smiled proudly. "Hovv'm i doin', CaplairiV" And Captain Bbyer grimier! tfood-tialuredly. "Fine!" lie assured him. Bill enough is enough, Joyce decided. The perspiration was forming in tlriy beads on her forehead, and her feet could stand no move, yet her partner showed no indication of giving up. "7 Iliink I'll have to stop," she protested finally, "ffs so very coming!" For there, directly in front of her, jusl one man re nov ' O'lf 'nil beaming assuredly under a Napoleonic- hat of vivid red i "Nonsense!" protested fhc gcn- lleman._ lightening his held ;j),oul -. ,.~., j*,., v v/m,- null it:- hei' waist.

After all, he doesn't have much chance, not with Old Pickle- Puss always behind him. The whistle sounded once more and the dancer's fell into a line of march. But not Mr. O'Ha'ra. "Think I'm going to change partners now?" ho demanded. No, sir-e-e-c!" So they kept up a litllc dance of their own, a dance which was are doing Ihc liig Apple. It goes like this. . . ." Jn some devious fashion hn began to limber his knees, to bend them this way and thai, looking for all the world like a toy balloon on a fork. ... Over his shoulder, Joyce cast an appealing glance toward Mr. Gregory, sitting expressionless al ilicir labte. But whether lie understood (lie signal or not, he made no move to help her out of the situation. Now Ihey were indeed becoming ridiculous, yet Joyce only aggravated the matter by attempting to free herself. "I'll look likei' a fool," she thought, "if I |ry in' saw how-dare-you-sir after letting il go this far. ... If only Dick were here—" finally, across the deck, she caught Mr. Roberts' eye and he winked back, underslandingly, and made his way toward the orchestra, thinking, perhaps, if the music slopped so would Mr. Bul before he had taken two steps, relief did come to Joyce, md from a very •unexpected source.
