Kven before the now deal, it was a common saying thai it took a highly - trained expert to tell r. Republican from n Democrat with the naked eye. Today the situation is eveji_ more puzzling. A sample of the confusion is to be found in the matter of Uvitt's. The Smoot-Hnwley Itu-iff act, passed by a Kepuhlican Congre:'n ai\d signed by a Republican president, was a target 'for Democratic oratory almo.-t from the day it became law. 11 ligurcd in the campaigns of 1030 and 193'^. Democrats beat their breasts and called on the heavens to witness that this bill was throttling trade. Many got themselves elected on that issue. ¥ * * An-J what have \vc now, wilh a Democratic administration? About the only tiling the hist Congress did in connection with the tariff was to increase the president's power to shut out foreign goods through the •flexible-rate provision. The whole doctrine of economic nationalism— under a president whose party traditionally opppses that doctrine — lias been pushed forward to a greater extent than at any other time within a cen- 'iury. Furthermore, it is reported in Washington that actual 'embargoes will be laid under the new price-i-aising policy. The maligned Smoot-Hawley bill, far from being too high,' seams to be too low. .* * « ' If all this is confusing, it is not more confusing than some of the other things that have been happening. Certainly it is no stranger than to sec the party which always stoo;l for slates' rights and a minimum of interference by the federal government, putting fnnvavd a program under which the federal government has more power than the dcvoutest follower of Alexander Hamilton ever dre-:med of giving it. As a result of this scrambling of the eggs, it is not so hard nowadays to tell Republicans from Democrat's. A Democrat, it seems, is a chap who A Boomerang A story from Chicago says that authorities in the ten Western Conference universities are growing disgusted over the way in which alumni are yelling for the scalps of football coaches whose tcnms are not doing as well as was expected this fall. It is implied that Llicse universities will take drastic steps to "de-emphasize" football unless this clamor lets up. "It's all right to have enthusiasm for football," one faculty representative is quoted as siiying, "but to let it run away with you is something else again . . . After all, you know, football is just » sport, not a< college education." Right here the. dilemma of the big university in connection with football is apparent. That football enthusiasm does run away with alumni each year is obvious; so, too, is the fact that many alumni make spectacles of themselves in their demands for an unbroken string of \;ictoriw. But when yon build ;in enormous stadium, hire a big coaching staff, and conduct your football program in major leag'ue style, you are asking for that kind of enthusiasm. You can't make your investment pay if you don't get it. Rabid alumni arc an inseparable part of, "big time" college football. iMj^^ (\ '' <&7 v 1 BLYTHEVILLE 10 YEARS AGO Fren the |Uc» «* the BJy(*ertU«[ Dally Coortcr Thursday, Nov. 1, 1923. Capt.

Declining 'Plague' The campaign against, tuberculosis, carried on with vigor in recent years by public health agencies and the National Tuberculosis Association, is showing some very substantial results. Dr. Frederick L. Hoffman, New York statistician, [joints out that the death rate from the disease In 50 representative American cities was lower last year than ever before. It dropped to a mark of 56 per 100,000—which compares with 174 per 100,000 in 1910. To bo sure,, the fight isn't over. Tuberculosis still takes 75,000 lives a year in America. But the tight is being won, and in the sharp decline in the death rate there is r. world of encouragement. ARLINGTON, Vt.
