Concerning an Error
In the Emerald
In it recent issue of Hie Emerald there appeared a story
concerning an investigation of the University Co-op being
eoiutiude<I hy a committee appointed h.v the student conned.
The headline id' this story referred to “alleged mis-runhing
of (he Co-op. This was so obviously an error, since the story
itself contained absolutely nothing which might he construed
as alleging any such thing, that we felt it unnecessary to com
ment upon tin- matter.
It has become evident this week, however, that there is
an impression upon the campus that perhaps Hie student coun
cil has made some such allegation in its decision to investigate.
As a matter of fact the council planned for its investigation
to take a friendly nature, and though it has been the stand
of the Emerald this year that the student council has been
wasting its time with its so-called “probes,” we feel that in
all fait ness we should point this out. The council at no time
in its meetings has expressed doubt as to the motives or the
capacities of those in charge of the Co-op.
The committee is now busy working upon its.report, which
will be made within the next week or ten days> and which
will lie published in the Emerald.
Peace, /Vof War, Occupies
Center of World Stage

Ceneral Charles K. Uowiand to the men taking K. 0. T. C.
Cndoubtedly the American armies under John J. Persh
jng, striking while Ihc iron was hot played a decisive part in
turning the tide of war against the central powers. General
Howland was not a hit reticent in painting the patriotic Amer
ican military picture vividly.
And yet a preponderance of thoughts among college men
throughout the countries ol the world today are directed to
widespread movements for peace.
Now, ten years after the catastrophe, the world is tiually
taking hold of itself to prevent- wars. Try to survey the opinion
of peoples everywhere. You will agree that more concerted
public attention, more potent political pressure is being exer
cised toward peace.
The papers of the day are crammed with expressions ad
Orgaui/.ations arc demanding all possible legislation favor
able to it.
The Kellogg Peace Pact, ratified by sixty nations,
last wTek was officially sanctioned hy the United States
■ A multilateral treaty of arbil ration probably the most com
prehensive vet devised were signed by countries of Central
and South America recently under the supervision of Secretary
of State Kellogg.
Eurther treaties of arbitration to supplement the Peace
ol Paris are being conducted among the Balkan States.
\ n port of the Reparations Commission under Mr. Parker
Gilbert demanded Iasi week a meeting to reconsider I lie amount
of money Germany must pay the victorious allies, and how
long she will have to pay it in.
Mr. J. P. Morgan, whose hanking house has loaned
(|k> allied nations over $700,000.1)00 for war purposes has
consented to officially assist in the reparations settlement.
When ii is realis'd that his creditors will not pay him until
Germany pays them, the significance of the step may hi- im
There are a lew of the events which are taking place in
the international affairs of this old world at the present time.
History is being made.
Ii is a dramatic period, full of much more promise than
perhaps has characterized any previous year since the eessa
l ion of host Hit ies.
Students the world over should appreciate the events of
such character transpiring.
t'hmds ou the hnri/on such as the Congressional attempt
to pass an aggressive cruiser appropriation bill, and tension
between English and \merioan interests, are not unusually
ominous. All things considered the world is in the ever
recurring throes attendant upon the strife for peace.
Peace, not war, is occupying popular favor.

Blind man’s buff
Remember the game? A handkerchief over your eyes
.... your hands searching for someone, feeling blindly
over features your eyes could so easily know. It seems
foolish—deliberately to blindfold yourself and go search
ing. You wouldn’t blind yourself deliberately when you
start out in search of purchases that help make life $
If you can read the advertisements first you are spared the
doubts and mistakes. Advertisements take the handker
chief off of your eyes. They equip you with keen vision.
They lead you direct to the shaving cream that will giv£
most freshness to your skin, to the most tempting clothes,
to the sparkling drinks most pleasing. They put in your
hands familiar good things guaranteed to please.
You can’t afford to buy under a blind man’s buff. Read
the advertisements to avoid the blindness—and the buff.
DON’T OVERLOOK THESE TODAY.
Advertisements help you tind the
best there is to find and
know it when you
