If this Cedar Rapids -newspaper sleuth continue his investigations, he is going to. learn some mor ;things, along- the same line. We hope he does and re pV.ts them. He will find that the Individual member in this group of newspapers have widely divergen views on almost every debatable subject. He'will fim that the La Crosse, Wls., member looks :at the prohibi tion question -much 'as lie himself does and that tin Mason City member is at complete loggerheads. HI will find that some are for Hoover and some agains him, some for. a high tariff arid some for almost nc tariff at all, some for military training in: the college and some against it. It may be a bit embarrassing to the Globe-Gazette' editorial writer, but if Mr. Marshall goes far enough ,and deep enough with his investlgations.-.he will un cover the "fact that at least three or four of the hews papers allied with the Lee organization were .vigorou critics of the athletic council at the university two years ago.

JJuse for 35 years continues to be'Globe-Gazette editorial policy "This condition doesn't fit Into the picture I drawn, by the Cedar Rapids critic who v sees the Mason City or the Muscatine .editor, acting on orders in the selection of editorial'or news subjects. In the.case of the present ;so-called Investigation of the university, It is true that there is more or less a . unanimity of beliefx^mqng the Lee editors; But might this not be Interpreted as evidence that they are all of balanced mind, rather than that their position is fixed by orders,, from elsewhere? They all believe too the earth is approximately round. ·· \ Whatever the fact may be concerning that question, we feel in fairness bound to, acknowledge onr 'gratitude : to Mr. Marsh aU for helping to throw a true light upon the fundamental nature of the Lee.organi- zation and the members/which comprise It.

Our first requirement .upon most-any song is that it be singable. At least so far as national anthems are concerned, we object to grand opera standards. The most we can say for "Star Spangled Banner': is that It.-is probably better than no- national anthem at all. We hope, however, that the act of congress is subject to amendment if in later years something which is at once more national .and more anthem-like is evolved.

I agree with the Christian Scleritists, at least to this extent, that fear is an actual cause o£ disease--mental and spiritual, if not bodily. 'It is very easy for health writers to fall into this habit. They fee the necessity of emphasizing their point, and there Is no better way to do It than to call on the emo tibnai and imagination of their aud ienc'e. And no emotion is more po tent than fear, and no emotion mor ?·."·-- Particularly 'dangerous Is thl practice if there is nothing to b 'done 1 about .the situation after the fear has been aroused. That is why this column 1 says very little abou' cancer and gives you very little support to the propaganda of the Society for the Prevention of Cancer.

After Lou's car had gone Mr. Power drove up and entered the theater and the great Dane coming along decided that the car was his master's and immediately took possession. When Mr Power was ready to drive home, Mr. Dog challenged possession. He meant business so evidently that Power called the copper. Neighbors who were on friendly terms with the dogvtried to coax him out abd the policeman used all his hypnotic powers but to no avail till he put his billy in action and as Power drove away the watch dog made another attempt to gain possession of the car Evidently the owner has neglected the dog's education in mathematics.

For several summers now their fam- Iles had taken up their abodes in their respective shacks early in May and were by now well acquainted. But one day Crackln suddenly filed suit against Bunger for trespass. At the trial it came out that Crackin was charging Bunger with entering upon his land and digging up a section of it without asking Crackln's permission. Bunger replied that Crackin had been iccumulating a heap of garbage there, that the garage had been causing noxious odors and gathering lies for weeks and he merely entered Crackin's yard o dig up enough land to cover the heap. How would you decide this case? Make up your .mind before you read the decision. The decision: The court held with Crackin.

H«kln, Director, WnnUngtcTn, B. C. Q. Please give me the rule of tho A. B. C. Bowling congress governing a tie game rolled between two teams in league bowling? L. J. O. A. In a tie game rolled between two teams in league bowling, according to the A. B. C. Bowling congress, each man on each team rolls an extra box on the same alley in which he last rolled. Q..What is tho record size for a pair of elk antlers? N. W. A. The largest pair recorded was purchased in Colorado Springs in 1897 for the emperor of Germany. Their length of beam was 67 Va inches and there were 12 points. Seven or eight points on\ antlers are not unusual. Q. How inunli water-power has- been developed in tho United States? L. H. P. A. It totals 13,807,778 horsepower. The potential total is 35,000,000,000 horsepower. Q. Should ono stir coffee clockwise or nntl-clockwlse? W. P. A. There is no-hard-and- fast rule. Whichever way is the most graceful is the one to use. Of course, one needs to be careful about stirring conspicuously. Q. What Is the derivation of "vlt- aphone?" Z. P. A. It is a coined word, "vita" meaning life, and "phone" meaning sound. Q. What constitutes an educated man? D. L. H. A. William H. Danforth selected the following from "The Marks of an Educated Man:" An educated man cultivates the open mind 1 ; never laughs at new ideas; knows thu secret of getting along with other people; cultivates th'e habit of success; knows as a man thinketh, so is he; knows popular notions are always wrong; always listens to the man who knows; links himself with a great cause; builds an ambitiou picture to fit his abilities; keeps busy at his hignest natural level; knows it is never too,late to learn; never loses faith in the man he might have been; achieves the masteries that make him a world citizen, and lives a great religious life.

In many parts of England it is customary for the men to enter and leave the pits during- the night and It is regarded as nn omen of bad luok if they meet a woman when they first leave the pits or leave their homes before entering them. A similar superstition exists among the fishermen of Yorkshire. If they meet a -woman when leaving home they immediately return home. Q. Are Indluns permitted to leave their reservations when they choose and establish their residence elsewhere nnfl enjoy all the rights of citizenship? A. H. A. The bureau of Indian affairs says that Indians on reservations may lease said reservations at any time 1 to establish a residence elsewhere. It is not necessary to obtain permission to do this. An Indian moving from a reservation enjoys the same citizenship privileges as any other American citizen. BO-BROADWAY N "By JOSEl'H VAN RAALTB" F EW. YORK, March 9.--Prof. Teddy Metz, author of ."A Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight," stopped in at the Astor the other night where The Newspaper Club's Old Timers' Night was under way. "I wrote a 'Hot Time' 50 years ago," said Metz, who is now 86 and doesn't look it. "They were having a little affair in a place called 'Old Town,' outside New Orleans. I wrote the song for that occasion. It was originally entitled 'There'll Be a Hot Time In Old Town Tonight.' "It struck the popular fancy. The word 'the' was Inserted before 'Olc Town 1 and. after awhile the tune became associated all over the country with illicit gaiety. It achieved some degree of dignity, however when Teddy Roosevelt's .Rough Riders adopted it. Since then--well, you know the rest. "Nevertheless, I'm ashamed of having written It. I can't understand, looking back, how I ever came to do it. I am convinced that jazz will soon disappear and that good music will come into Its own." J JNSUNG NEW Y O R K E R-Ignatz, of Eleventh avenue, nas the distinction of being the only dose goat among New York's Seven Million. For the last three years he has been living the life of Reilly and any sunny day may be seen meandering with almost Insolent nonchalance on either side of the avenue, from Thirty-fourth to Forty- second street. Ignatz used to have a'job with a packing company. His work was leading sheep to slaughter. Somewhere along the road he lost a horn; tho fugacious years have not dealt kindly with his hide and his eyes are divergent--that is, one of them, looks forward toward next spring, while the other gazes dreamily back in the general direction of last Christmas. /' Last summer, Ignatz was arrested for roaming the streets without a license. After languishing several days in jail he was released. His all-pervading presence coupled with, his pronounced and peculiar appetite was too much for the police department. CHINES SANS TINSEL--With the ^J whole of Mazda Lane breaking its neck to look its swankiest, meet Dorothy Stickney who is happiest when she looks dowdy on the stage. Miss Stickney's career has been what is called "a procession of tackiness in clothes," in which she has given magnificent performances. In the play "Chicago," she was a. ' scrubwoman. In "Front Page," an ill-cled denizen of the gutter. Today, in George Kelly's latest success, "Philip Goes Forth," she plays the part of a hopeless little spinster who writes poetry that doesn't sell. .Her costume calls for remnants of the attic. So gifted is Miss Stickney that you leave the theater forgetting the smartly dressed women In the cast and remembering only the little girl n the shabby frock and frowsy hat. Who's Who and Timely Views COLLEGE PLANT EXPANSION URGED By ELMER E. BROWN Chancellor, New York University. Elmer Ellsworth Brown was born In Chautauqua counly, Wow York. AUR, 23, 1801. He la a Rrnduate of Illinois state Normal university and the University of Michigan, obtaining a Ph. D. decree at Halle-Wittenberg and holding honorary dcRrcea from sev- . cral other collesea. He was principal of a high achooi, taught at tho University of Mlchldn a year, then became aaaoclate professor at the University of California In 1802. Leavlns there, a professor. In 100(1, he was U. s. commissioner of education for the next five years. He has been chancellor of New York university since 1011 He-la n member of numerous national scientific organizations and has written several books on universities, etc. T HE PLEA has been sent forward with great urgency that universities, colleges and other non-prqfit nstitutions expand their building operations in this time o£ unemployment. I wish to emphasize t h i s plea. It is not often that good can be a c c o m- pllshed in so many directions by a single undertaking. To erect a new building at t h i s time la to take advantage of the relatively low cost of " materials. It is to Elmer E. Brown provide work for hose who would normally be employed and are now out of employment. It is to quicken the activity tt all of those industries which are ributary to building construction, .t is to accentuate the upward turn rom a period of distressful dia- iouragement and inactivity. It is not only new construction In teel and 1 stone and concrete that will have this effect, but those op- rations of repair and renovation which are always claiming atten- lon even in tho newest and most ip-to-datB institutions, and in the most of .our educational institutions re long overdue. Even without the rectlon of new buildings a general JVerhauling and renewal of a uni- versity plant will be effective in the quickening- of morale in the institution itself and in its tributary community. As.regards new construction, the advantages are most enjoyed by those Institutions which have had the 1 foresight to project their plans of building and landscape for a long; time to come. They are ready to answer the question of prospective donors as to what building and of what type of architecture and for what particular location is now most imperatively needed. More fortunate still are those institutions which have plans already matured, dreams ready for realization as soon as the happy benefactor speaks the word and makes the needed contribution. All of our educational institutions, no matter how well housed and equipped, have those gaps which could bo filled this year with double glory to the givers and double gain to the whole community. But I come back to the homely, commonplace needs of renovation and repair. The poorest institutions and those blessed with fewest benefactors in the field 1 o£ large and spectacular benevolence can make some improvement at this time where the hand of decay has lain heavily upon their physical plant, ant!
