Mr. Ayers has been the pupil' of
Mr. Louis Artau, instructor in piano

for only two years, and no better
praise can be given Mr. Artau than
to say that this student, is an alto

THE COLLEGE WATCH
==*= It Tells the College Times ===
By LEONARD H. DLLANO—
“Have you an extra nursing bot
tle thut 1 can buy?”
This was the question asked of a
nursery matron in Berkeley the
other day. Berkeley, as all good
Californians know, is a college town,
and the person asking for a nursing
bottle was no less than a U. C.
fresh. The matron couldn’t help
but gasp, so the story goes, but she
rallied to cross-question the visitor.
“And what, my little man, may
you desire of a nursing bottle?”
Then followed the explanation
that he was a first-year man, and
was soon to play an active part in
a fraternity initiation. As the
birth rate at this time of year does
not run exceedingly high, the ma
tron felt safe in selling the defy red
article. In tin; bottle she poured
a pint of nice, sweet milk. When
she handed it over, she had also
included a set of low and high

Student Paints Mussolini in Dual
Roles as Italian Tyrant9 Patriot
By CAROL HURLBURT
! “I want to go buck to Italy some
j day,” said Bill Proctor, special stu
I dent in architecture who lias spent
! the last three years in Belgium and
i Italy, “and if I tell you what I
think of Mussolini, I can’t.”
Mussolini rules Italy with an iron
hand, but Mr. Proctor was finally
prevailed upon to talk of it.
“Mussolini has,” he stated, “made
an efficient government out of the
corrupt one that preceded it.
“He has whipped into shape a nu
: tion of sluggards and instilled in
[them the wish for work.
“He has driven communism out
of Italy—at least on (he surface.
“lie personally has great mag
netic power and seems to call forth
the best in the men under him..” j
These are the complimentary
things that Mr. Proctor had to say
for Mussolini, but most of his com
ments were on the other side.
Mussolini has stopped all national
organization except fascism.
in order to get work a man must
be a fascist. “Bo, when figures
are quoted as to the number of
fasciti in Italy there must be a
great allowance made for those who
must belong to the party,” lie said.
The press is censored and there
is no freedom of speech. “The
fascist! censor everything,” Mr.
Proctor laughed. “L read an article
in the Saturday livening Post where
Mussolini says that such and such
an article was written saying some
thing in favor of fascism.
“Of course, that’s nothing but, a
farce because nothing goes in the
papers except what he wants,” said
“As for freedom of speech, every
one, including myself, is so afraid
of Mussolini that I was in Italy
more than a year before I heard
anything said against fascism.”
Speaking of fascism, Mr. Proctor
said, “The policemen swear alleg
iance to the king. The regular
army officers also swear allegiance
to the king, but tlm fascist i swear
allegiance to Mussolini. The police
.officers carry no guns, and ;so'dh'ey
•ii'allv Jiave f me, powerp • willile’"the
swagger! ng'fa sc i stadias a gun andeis
the only one who°cau use it.”
Mussolini is planning on building
Italy on the plans of ancient ffoiuc.
“In Mussolini's office In' has a
bust of t’a-'sar and he holds him
'uii as a shining model,” Mr. Proctor
"In one id’ his speeches, ho said
