In its editorial response, the Bar

philosophically, or perhaps, stoically.
The editor comments:
“Granting that the principle was

to excuse the affair, the Barometer
wishes to point out to its readers

Maurice Hindus spoke of the-Bol

of Russia’s future. The term “Bol

the news of the last ten years and
has played so great a part in every
day talk as to have become a by

crowd which gathered to hear him
speak exported to hear about the
Bolsheviki. They did. And they
heard more than .just that.
They heard of the hundred nn.d
some millions of Russian peasants
who are the backbone of the. nation,!
and compared with whom the Rid
sheviki are but a handful. They
learned of the refusal of these il
literate peasants to bow down to j
the authority of the soviet without

ignorant but not stupid masses, and

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

To CurioUs Queries
The Inquiring Reporter Asks
from Campus folks selected at
random, one question each day.
Replies are directly quoted.
Today’s Question: How can you
tell a collegian from other persons?
Hob Griffin, senior in psychol
ogy: “The normal man thinks the
world is a huge sandpile and he
has a toy shovel but the collegian
is busily planning a steam shovel.”
Dorothy Franklin, junior in jour
nalism: “You can tell them by their
clothes, raincoats and large trous
ers. The colors they choose are
very bright, loud and attract atten
Thirza Anderson, freshman in
journalism: “You can usually tell
them bv the way they walk, by their
collegiate shuffle, and the line they
usually peddle. And among the
men it's ‘you can't resist my fascin
ation’ attitude, especially when they
come back from their home town.”
Horace Cooke, senior in educa

his bored attitude and lack of ap
