Employers and College Graduates
In a recent editorial the Daily Illini issues a warning against im
practical courses and against book-wormism. “In all professions,
the employer does not necessarily choose college students of the hig -
est scholastic standings,” the comment declares, “since grades only
indicate their ability to apply themselves to a given task. He is
looking for the student who has been busy in activities, and who has
shown initiative and the talent for leadership.
The statement is correct in the majority of cases, with the possible
exception of the student who is preparing for a college instructor’s
position. The student who has shown that he is practical, that he
has the ability to take the initiative in matters where responsibility
and careful decision are necessary, is the one most fitted for the
practical problems which are to be met in the business world. A
specialized education is an excellent thing, in so far as it goes,—yet
there are many who have prepared themselves for a single occupation
who find that the attractive and lucrative positions available when
they entered college for their specialization have all since disap
Whether the practical problems to be met in after life are in
business or politics, the student engaged in a variety of student activ
ities is the one best prepared to meet the exigencies as they may arise
in these callings. The cultural education and the practical benefits
to be derived from a life of activity in university life are closely
related in that goal for which all are grasping, a liberal education.
To neglect the activities in student life is to neglect one of the
greatest opportunities afforded the seeker of a higher education. It
is an education in itself, one in which practicality, responsibility and
initiative are the predominating factors. The ultimate benefits to
the body politic as well as to the individual are inestimable.

Pacific Universty has not yet ceased
its attack upon the U. O. over the with
drawal from the state debating league.
An article in the February number of
the Index states:
“We are in receipt of the Oregon
Weekly bearing the date of February

eloquence are contained therein! What
railings and classical allusions! Yea,
verily, the truth cuts most wondrously
hard. Where, may we ask, is the argu
ment with which they reply to our
statements of the debating controversy?
Their editorial, when freed of the rhet
orcal embellishments which surround it,
is inferior in argument to the reasoning
employed by the U. O. debating team
in the two years when they did not win
the debate. The U. O. Weekly will be
placed in the reading room for perusal

What Is Water Japan?
JAPAN — not the country but a metal-coating varnish—
^ and your morning bottle of milk. Totally unlike, yet
Ordinary japan consists of a tough, rubbery, tar-like “base"
and a highly inflammable “solvent." The solvent dilutes
the base so that the metal may be coated with it easily. The
presence of the solvent involves considerable fire risk, espe
dally in the baking oven.
Milk is a watery fluid containing suspended particles of
butter fat, so small that one needs the ultra-microscope to de
tect them. An insoluble substance held permanently in sus
pension in a liquid in this manner is in “colloidal suspension.”
The principle of colloidal suspension as demonstrated in
milk was applied by the Research Laboratories of the General
Electric Company to develop Water Japan. In this com
pound the particles of japan base are colloidally suspended
in water. The fire risk vanishes.
So the analysis of milk has pointed the way to a safe
japan. Again Nature serves industry.
Connected with the common things around us are many
principles which may be applied to the uses of industry with
revolutionary results. As Hamlet said,’“There are more
things in Heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in
