A Lot Yet to Buy Former President Coolidue, iiddress- h\s a convention of New York lifo insurance agency directors at St. I'etcr.s- burjf, Fla., rightly declitrcs (lint "a potent factor in iiicraisint,' our material welfare" is tlic fuel .lliat more limn 5100,000,000,000 in life insurance is now in force in tliis country. The sum is stupendous. Ncvcrtlic- kss, no insurance salesman needs to think that the field 1ms been entirely covered. For, as Stuart points out, our national income is now around ?90,000,000,000 annually. Wo are, consequently, insured for only a little bel- ter than one year's income. In other words, the nation can and should buy a great deal more insurance. The wide-awake insurance men will doubtless sec to it that it docs. No More Gale Recipls Dr. Frank Parker Day, president of Union College, in New York, tells the National Collegiate • Athletic Association that the way to remove all suspicion of professionalism from college football is for the colleges to stop making money on athletics—to do away with gate receipts and professional coaching. Dr. Day's suggestion, if adopted, would undoubtedly do away with most of the evils complained of by prcsenl- x day football critics. But would it stop the evil o^ subsidwug? \V$ doubt'it. The college athlete gels subsidized usually, not by. someone who is thinking of gate receipts, bu£hy some loyal alumnus who is willing to pail with a few hundred dollars in order to give the old school a good football player. Even if there wers no gate receipts or paid coaches, there probably would remain plenty of these enthusiastic graduates to keep the subsidizing evil a live question. Pershing's Wise Decision General Pershing, refusing to be "drafted" as a Republican sanatoria! candidate in Nebraska to oppose Senator Norris, shows once more his excellent sense. In 1920 Pcrshing sensibly refused to run for the presidency. It was a •wise decision, His present decision is no less wise. The motive back of the frantic attempts that are being made to get Norris out of public life don't reflect a griat deal of credit on anyone. Agrco with Norris or nol, you must admit that he bears the reputation of being one of Uio iiblest men in American Senate; and his per.sona] reputation is of the highest order. Fiirthcrmorj, the "voters of Nebraska seem eminently satisfied with him. We are glad General Persliing refused to run against him. For 0113 thing, the general very likely would have been defeated. ^TUESDAY, JANUARY U,, 1930 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Juries and Beer "The Kmitli Cr.iulliin Supreme Court hns ruled that a Jury In a prohibition liial mny drink (lie evidence in oidcr tci utlsly itself that It Is lii- luxicalliih'," *!iyi> a co:ilciiipiirury who ndcls this ccniiiiciil: "Tin-, f.omuls like common seme.

Miss Virginia Lee, an old maid columnist, says that a man (should tell, his wife tlie truth and -ths whole truth about everything If he wants a happy home. Well, Virginia, what Is a husband to do when the fat wife asks: "Am I as big as that woman?" And now a professor tells us that humans have [assessed Intelligent for over 1,000,000 years. If that is true an ordinary monkey Is out of the running completely. In other words, if we were smarter than a monkey 1,000,000 years ago and if Donkeys do not improve much aster llisn we have, our grcal- j-rand children will be dead- with old aye before monkeys demand equal suffrage.
