The Sc/io/ars Gel the /ofa There is ;i (|ti«iml old Amcrit'.'in U;i- dition'lhat Uic college slutlenl who makes his mark in scholarship never amounts to much afterward; that flic really admirable product of our colleges is the ghid-hander who is president of things, plays tackle on the football team, and never lets his studies interfere with his college work; thai for every routine jol> awaiting Urn student "grind" there are 10 bin LW- porations clamoring for the services at a fancy salary of the high hurdle champion who was president of his fnit- *"ernity. , Enter President Walter S. Gilford of ;;the American Telephone & Telegraph "Company with disillusionment. Gilford • reports that men v,-'no graduate in the 'first 10th of their class have four times .as '.many chances of getting into the ;.liigher-fialaried groups as those who 'giT.uuate in the lowest third. Generally speaking, the men with the highest, scholastic records get the most re' sponsible jobs and the best salaries af- _ter\vnrd. A number of large corporations, hav;e .standing offers open, with •various.colleges toigivc good jobs to the ' leading scholars in every class. And don't think the college students - haven't waked up to that fact, long ahead of the public in general. At Am" herst recently 80 per cent of the senior Tplass indicated that they prized Phi Beta.Kappa (scholarship society) ahead, " of any other college distinction. Yak* students have often indicated a similar preference. The college students who get mixed -'• up in booze parties and the like get the -'.. publicity. The ones who work at their "" studies get Uic jobs. ^- When "Ignorance /s B/rss" Whoever coined Ihe expression, "ig- — norance is bliss," was apparently years .".I ahead of his time. ,~ Within the space of a month two of ~", this country's most eminent men of medicine have come to the identical ;^ conclusion that brains aren't so healthy — for us. ;- Dr. Harvey W. Gushing of Boston .-•-. finds that the brain is responsible for '.'.". stomach ulcers—of all things. ; -~ Dr - George W. Crilc of Cleveland ac- OUT OUR WAY cuses this highly devclopi'd OI-BMII . of . ours for a goodly share of man's ncur- olic discuses, one of wifidi xoes so fai- ns to produce "Kiiiigronoiw spots on Uic Loily." Says Dr. Crile: "Tin- largo brain which iiuiii luis di'VL-lnpwl lo liis advantage often IJCCOIMI.'S his chief liability." Rrnins, as you M:<>, can he a curse as wall as a blessing. Of course there will i-onlinuo to be those ninoiig us who will never be in any danger of contracting diseases of an intellectual origin. But it will seem strange lo bo advised that if you would not expose yourself lo grave physical dangers, why just don't think too hard. Capitalism's House Cleaning Crlllcnl as Ilicy may h? of t!ic nUtludc ol I he capitalistic govcrnintnls toward Ihclr cn- (tCHVors to nmoilol Hi? i-miomlc systems of tlie world, the Uohhcvki lender* Imvc no reason lo complain that svkksprciul utlcnllon Is not bcliiB given to tliolr tilorts. At the meetings of Hit Unik'd Htalca Chamber of Commerce, rlisc'isslom linn- been nctlve on thu necessity of iu!a[illn K SORK- sjMi'in of planned Industry like file famous Five-VIMr Plan In order to avi-ri such periods of tlt'jirrssloii as tint which now afflicts business. In London, tlie Association ol British Chambers of Coinmcru- asks an official study of Hie live-Year Plan, and Lloyd George Is salrt to be conlcinplntlng u ti!]i lo Kussm for the purpose of a porsonnl Invcsllgalluii. At Providence, ll.

Meanwhile, w. Z. Poster has Just liron re-elected American representative of the Third intcrna- llonale and cominlcsbucd (o prcucii the virtues of Communism to America. And finally, and most terrifying of all, the Daughters ol the American Revolution nl Washington have enjoyed the" thrilling experience of meeting behind locked doors mid under a double police yuarj because ol minors that Communists might attack their hall and put a summary ami revolutionary end to Representative Hamilton Fish's oration on the menace of (he Reds. It is all very interesting, and even exciting. Furthermore, all this discussion, nil these precautions, all lliese apprehensions, arc based, frequently uim-mingly, upon the gradual recognition by the governments and peoples of countries outside the Soviet Republic Hint some form of house cleaning- on (heir part, may be at least, prudent. Whether (lie Hve-Yunr Plan Is on (he highroad to success or not nobody outside a limited circle In Hussla can know with any certainly. Bui lhat, the much-vaunted system of individual initiative under the capitalist, direction of industry Is nut the complete ami glittering; success which It has been ihouglil lo be, everybody, in the lace of (ho present, world-wide depression, must know. An overwhelming majority ol (ho people ol (he so-called capitalistic countries look with something narrowly approaching horror upon what has been done In Russia, it. is to be hoped thai a majority equally understand dial the surest defense against the appearance in their own countries of a revolutionary regime is so lo amend, organize and humanize tiii-ir present systems of production and distribution that there shall be at least work, shelter and food for all. No citizen of a capitalistic country can point with pride to an organization of industry which makes so ninny things that all people want ns to make it impossible for the iicoplc to find money lo buy the things; a system which at the fame lime iicrmits the hunger of tens of thousands and the locking up of millions of bushels ol wheat in order lo maintain prices; a system under which the musses arc seldom more than (wcnly-tour hours away from destitution, while the wealth of a comparative few enjoying special privileges steadily increases. —Christian Science Monitor. ._.
