The Manders boys ut Drake are from Houth Dakota. We don't know the solution of the problem, unless It would be to require nil varsity athlttlc teams to be composed entirely of men from within the state In which the school Is located.

It says to pronounce Sudeten "floo-Dny-ten." The residents are people of German blood, not necessarily, It Is understood, ever residents of Germany, or In any way under the Gorman government. It Is to be suspected that Crazy-Man Hitler Is not so much Intreented In his blood brethren of alien nationality a* ho Is interested In gaining control of their country. • • 9 Building a Home Toledo Chronicle: A paper In Minnesota nays that when many of the young people of today, when they set up a new home, feel that they must have everything to start with. .They are not patient enough to wait and earn things through the years, as did their parents. They feel that they must start where father and mother are now. In the effort to do this, they make of life a treadmill wherein every resource of mind and mu'cle In spent In getting things instead of living as they go. They want to step Into homes complete to the last detail. Then there Is nothing left to plan for, to work for, except Installment payments. It Is all wrong, this Uli'tt of life. It in riurely n nmlat't. They have ^sentenced themselves to hard labor for things.

LONTXJN: Nearly the whole world ast week undertook to pass judgment In one form or another on Britain'* Prime Mlnleter. That Seville Chamberlain will be award- d the Nobel Peace Prize (about 140,00) wa* taken for granted by the Vorwegian pre**, and one Influent- .1 paper (Aftenpoiten) urged that ic be given "Immedlaetly" to Mr. Chamberlain without waiting for the next scheduled Nobel award date- December 10, anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel. Norwegian joy at the peace was such that all Oslo school children were given a. holiday. In Britain Mr. Chamberlain seemed elated to receive from George VI the rare honor of knighthood In the Order of the Garter, and Birmingham University Immediately received a $60,000 scholarship fund from Publisher Sir Charle* Hyde "to commemorate the service for peace of the Prime Minister." The Prime Ministers of Britain's "Dominion* Beyond the Sea*" cabled to Mr. Chamberlain their cabinet*' warmest congratulations. The British Labor movement—never mllltantly class-conscious and ju»t anxious to avoid fighting—also upheld Mr. Chamberlain, but the gilded British Aristocrat Alfred Duff Cooper launched the first attack against him In London by resigning with a dab of mustache and a Fuhr- erlsh haircut He wa* Newspaper man John C.
