The unrest wliicli sui/.cd Ihc sliulcnl body, or a piiii of it, when tbe .student newspaper was gagged limy not last very Ion;;. It may not bother the Kinglisli in tbe least, and it may do . absolutely nothing toward freeing the university from his domination. But it is giving these young students the best possible kind of object lesson in two kinds of freedom. First of all, it is teaching Iheiii—in the most approved laboratory manner —just'wlint this famous old freedom of the press argument is all about. * * * . ;, When (lie stall' of the student paper .resigned after discovering thai it would ' bu lose: majestc to criticize •the senator, they learned something that newspaper editors of all times ami places luive .known, lo ) wit;,- that a iiewspiiper is worth notliing'whatever, to its readers or to ds publishers, if it be not free to uxpross opinion and present facts without interference from above. They will no!.'need, to be told, any more, that a people is not free if its newspapers are gagged. They have leaincd that much by sad experience and the lesson will slick. / .. So much for' liiu first' ol;jcct Jes.son. : The second one runs parallel; it is a succinct and memorable demonstration of the nature and value of academic freedom. » * * If ll)i;ie is one plait: above all other wheie men's minds should be free to rove in any direction that .seems good tu them, it is a university. There must bo freedom there, if there is none anywhere else. Without it, a university ceases l u be a place where minds are broadened and culture,is developed,'and becomes —a country cltdj, a political organization, an athletic association, O r what you wi<h; anything at all but a university. And (when that transformation takes pl.uc, the institution is no longer worth costs.

Farm Program Shows Up Well The financial angle of the farm program is Interesting. Newest lijfiires released hrWashington show thai farmers participating in (he crop adjustment programs have received, to dale, slightly, more Hum $507,000,000 in cash benefits. T'lijs, however, lias cost the treasury nothing, the processing (axes having taken in $558,000,000. These payments in themselves are an important contribution to fai-m income. But the AAA program must ultimately stand or fall on its success in increasing the farmer's income indirectly, by raising Ihe prices of the things he sells, rather than by its direct payments; and in this field, loo, the record is not half bad. Farm income for the current year is estimated at $0,000,000,000, which is about 19 per cent above the 1933 folal mVd some 39 per cent above the total for 1932. in other words, fh c program is costing the treasury nothing, and it is slowly succeeding in raising farm prices., U. S. in Antarctica The United Slates seems to havu received title, or something resembling it, to a considerable <|ii;mlily of new land. Admiral Hynl, having explored .« large' stretch of hilherlo undiscovered land in Hie Antarctic, claims it for the United States in Uie traditional manner. All in all, now, this country ha s a more or 'less valid claim to some 200,000 simaro miles in the vicinity of the South Pole. • I To be siire, there, is precious mile to show that this luiid is ever going to be worth anything tp us.
