A Plea for Fewer, Smaller and
Quieter Dog Fights
.Buoyed up by the success attendant upon the Emerald's
recent crusade for soap in the men’s gymnasium, another cam
paign is being launched with this issue for fewer and smaller
dog fights in the Condon reserve library.
Where those dogs come from or where they are going or
to whom they belong no one lias ventured to prophesy. But the
dogs are there. Practically any afternoon or evening, especially
Sunday afternoon, dogs of every kind, shape, color, descrip
tion and previous condition of servitude congregate in the main
reading room at Condon. Small, brown canines; huge, woolly
specimens; speckled, shaggy Airedales; fox terriers, bull-dogs,
and police hounds, all are represented in the university’s'
sacred shrine of study. ' ■
Usually the (logs troop in, sniff around, and lie down com
placently at the foot of some conscientious seeker after know
ledge. Sometimes they (the (logs) leave the building peacefully
after surveying the situation But often a fight is started when
two or more ilea carriers desire to occupy the floor space under
the same desk.
Or si fence will be reigning, the dogs contentedly dozing,
and a stray member of the dog fraternity out on the street will
pierce the stillness of the night or afternoon with a bark at the
wheels of a speeding automobile. Shrill calls like these are
heeded; every dog in the library either answers immediatelv in
kind or assembles at double time, leaving a startled audience
ol scholars in nerve-fraved bewilderment.
Euless other suitable ordinances can be passed for the pro

Antonio Moreno has raised a I
brand new soup-strainer especially I
for “The Midnight Taxi” and is 1
excellently cast, as a wholesale li

hero. William Russel and Myrna

standard pair of crooks, have again
run away with high honors and]
stolen the leading rides.
l’lcnt.v of comedy is provided by I
the antics of Tommy Dugan, fresh!
from ihe Bowery, whose unusual
gags give rise to many a hearty
laugh. Although the picture is
brimming over with romance and
action and very well directed, it
somehow falls short of being a
really big production.

Today’s question: Do you think
that house grades should he com
piled on a comparative basis.’
Ruth Helms, senior in history:
“Yes, I think it makes the students
work harder tor grades when they
are trying to raise the standard of
their house. If a house doesn’t have
a high standing otherwise, it will
work for a high grade place on the
Forrest Finley, sophomore in Eng
lish: “Surely. There can’t lie any
fair standards that are removed from
a competitive basis.”
Elise Srhroeder, junior in journal
ism: “When they decided not to
have a scandal sheet any longer they
did it with the idea of not giving
the individual grades publicity. The
way it is now it is little better than
the old method, and I believe the
matter of grades should concern the
individual instead of the organiza
tion. It causes hard feeling between
the houses, too.”
Scott Milligan, senior in journal
ism: “I don’t think they should in
clude law school grades because they
carry fewer hours and points are
hard to get. Their average is us
ually about a point lower.”
