A Few Reminders
For Spring Time
As a contribution to the jollity

There are two weeks and a half
left until the black shroud of ex
examinations closes about us.
All seniors who expect to gradu
ate must immediately pay $10.00
blood-money for a diploma.
Wax mighty merrily, oh sons and
daughters of ’26, because in a few
days you won’t bo collitch boys
and girls any more.
Get ready—you seniors—you’re
goijig to get an awful jolt these
next few weeks.
You’ll have to get a job.
You’ll have to work.
You ’ll probably starve.
No more mill race.
No more fun.
But thank Heaven, we won’t have
toast and coffee for breakfast!
Man for Prexy
In your daily rounds have you
ever heard this: “Well, of course
that is bad—very bad, but as soon
as tho new President comes every
thing will straighten out. ...”
Undoubtedly tho new president
will assist materially in smoothing
the troubled waters; but unfortun
ately, in all probability tho now
proxy is little more than a human
being with human limitations, and
even ho may falter if all tho woes
of the universe aro tossed ou his
It is reasonable to expect that
the new president should assist
greatly in setting tho good ship
University aright; but it is reason
able to expect also that every one
else around tho University will have
to do his or her share to make
tilings easy for this limn. So don t
let the big Proxy Myth get the best
The Executive Council
Gets Under Way
The new executive council got
off to a flying start yesterday by
passing two very excellent meas
ures. One of them will provide
three new playing fields for intra
mural athletics and the other will
place the lecture series under stu
dent body control. Both actions in
dicate a very definite and healthy
trend of policy that is extremely
In past years student body inter
ests have been confined largely to
amusements and intercollegiate ae
tivities. Now we find the policy
broadening to include the whole
student body and taking in also
matters of strictly educational na
ture. The new athletic fields will
give Mr. Average Man a chance to
play do-nut baseball, and the lecture
series will provide intellectual di
version of a type that has been
almost lacking in the past.
• » *
The funds for the new playing]
fields will bo made available on
condition ■ that the regents match
the student body’s $1,500 contri
bution. Some may argue that the
students are unwise to embark on
a policy of paying for athletic fields
which have been provided by the
state in the past. As a matter of |
principle, however, thoro seems to
be little differenc between a basket
ball center for the students and
baseball fields for the students.
The lecture series will give stu
dents an opportunity to hear some
of tlio most stimulating people of
the day. Alexander Meikeljohn,
distinguished educator, will keep
people talking for months after he
has left the campus.
The state-wide interost in poli
tics has seeped into the campus
with scvoral political clubs making
their appearance. This brings into
discussion tho place of state or na
tional politics within university
bounds. ITave tho students and the
faculty tho right to plunge into
politics? Shall state-supported in
stitutions engage in tho politician's
• • •
There seems to bo a wide-spread
belief that all persons enrolled or
employed by a stato University
shall not participate actively in
theso political affairs. Tho assump
tion is widely accepted, but strange
ly enough, a careful scrutiny of the
proposition will fail to disclose any
reason why students or faculty
members should not enter eagerly
into politics. No one ever heard of
a state employee around the state
eapitol refraining from politics, so
why exempt the University? As
long as freedom of speech and ac
tivity is assured it would appear
reasonable that politics should go
the merry rounds.
A common criticism levied against
colleges and Universities holds that
these institutions are narrow in their
interests; that they do not partici
pate in the affairs of the world.
Perhaps an active interest in tho
practical political science of tho
state and nation would help mat
ters out considerably.

LETTERS OF ANTON CHECHOV
..Reviewed by CLARA L. FITCH..
If you have, way down deep un
der your conventional likings of
the things you think you ought to
like, a remnant of the little boy
or the small girl that wanted to
peep into windows and hide behind
davenports when “sister” had a
caller, you must get out of the li
brary the letters of Anton Chechov,
and gallop through them. For here
is an inside view, a glimpse under
drawn shades. Here are the letters
which the great Russian wrote to
tho woman he married, from the
time he met her till he fell a victim
as do so many Russian genius per
sons seem to do, to the white plague,
The first amazing thing about
these letters is that they are gay
letters. He has troublous times, he
is enraged, it is “scurvy” weather,
he is bored by dull visitors, he is
forbidden this and that pleasure by
doctor’s orders, and yet this writer
of shiveringly drab tales is vigor
ously gay. Contrary to your ex
pectation, you think you would
have found him good fun. Hear
him exclaim “Oy Oy!” and call his
correspondent “Ginger-haired dog.”
He must have been an actual human
being after all.
The letters are an exhibit of live
ly and overflowing spirit, trying
like the sun on an April day, to
come out from behind the clouds
of ill health and poverty, and suc
ceeding pretty well, on the whole.
And incidentally, they become a
show window into the life of the
literary and artistic coteries which
boosted Russian literature into the
' catalogues of most of the American
colleges. Into immortality, for
Chechov’s wife, whose name no
one could possibly pronounee, unless
the}' were able to corner some Slav
ic friend, was one of the leading ac
tresses of the Art theater that up
set all the old traditions of dramat
ic production and burst on an as
tonished and bedazzled world like
a sky-rocket. She pjlayed leading
parts In his plays, and did them
to his entire satisfaction, which of
course explains why he fell in love
But after all, no one should be
advised to read this book who does
not have more time than the ordi
nary college slave. For having read
this lively and ingratiating volume,
one feels attracted to the large
volume about the Moscow Art the
atre, and finds a disposition to hunt
for the novel of Maxim Gorky (a
constant visitor of Chechov’s) and
read or to re-read “The Cherry Or
chard” and “Uncle Vanya”. Then
there are stories which clamor to
be given attention, and the first
thing you know you find yourself
ranging as far afield as Tolstoi;
and horror of horrors, perhaps even
emerging at the other end of a long
avenue of books with a rather com
plete acquaintance with what is
called contemporary European nov
elists. And quite without any credit
signed, sealed and delivered on yel
low cards filed in the registrar’s
This is an insidious book. It is
liable to be habit-forming. It may
lead you to read more and more and
more. You are hereby warned sol
| emnly against it.
Produce Red Solution
Using Gold Chloride
A ruby-red solution made by the
mixing of chloride of gold and
water which has been boiled with
a small amount of tannic acid and
placing it in a clean glass bottle
and shaking is one of the results
of experimentation by students in
the general physiology laboratory.
This color is due to the gold be
ing present in extremely minute
particles that are even too small to
be seen with a microscope.
Michael Faraday, famous English
scientist, was one of the first men
to perform experiments with gold'
and water. A sample of his gold
preparation made in 1885 is preser
ved in the Royal Institution. It
still retains its original bright color.
Purple and bluo solutions result
from changing the size of the gold
particles by the addition of hydra
Red glass windows in many of

Get Whet You Ask For!
“Sure I carry Orange-Crush, but
I haven’t any on ice right now.
Here’s something just as good.”
But it isn't as good. That’smerely
a trick on the part of the unscru
pulous dealer to gyp you out of
an extra fraction of a cent!
Don't Ut him do it!
There is only one Orange-Crush
—always in the Krinkly Bottle—
and it s so vastly superior to
cheapened imitations that it’s well
worth fighting for. Here’s why:
To sparkling carbonated water is
added the juice of luscious
oranges, the delicate flavor of
their peel, the zestful tang of the
fruit acid found in oranges, lemons
and limes, a pure food color, such
as you use in your cakes and
csundies, pure cane sugar.
Doctors agree that true fruit flavored
carbonated beverages are helpful.
That’s why Orange-Crush is served to
convalescents at many of the better
hospitals. They know what Orange
Crush is made of—know that it is
pure and wholesome. All the flavor
comes from the orange.
Orange-Crush is not only refreshing; it
has more energy-replacement value,
or Food Calories, than an equal quan
tity of fresh ripe oranges. Mothers,
give the children all the Orange-Crush
they like—it’s good for them.
Buy Orange-Crush over the counter
from your neighborhood dealer—or
ask him to send you home a case.
Remember, there is only one Orange
Crush—always in the Krinkly Bottle.
