Newspaper Leadership Needed
17 OR several weeks now China and Japan have been glowering
*■ at each other and making threatening moves that would
seem to presage war. There have been skirmishes and a number
have been filled and wounded, but in spite of this each nation
has been reluctant to declare open war and has maintained that
moves are made only to protect their Manchurian rights. What
their rights are no one seems to know.
One cannot help but believe that, shorn of the rumors that
persistently float back and forth of menacing moves by either
country, negotiations for a peaceful settlement might have been
completed some time ago. Only recently the United States be
came seriously involved when false reports reached Japan con
cerning certain statements of Secretary of State Stimson. The
papers were covered with headlines of the incident until it was
finally straightened out.
Such a state of affairs is not unique. Most wars arise from
just such situations. Once the national pride has been aroused,
it takes only a rumor to start things going. Of course, when 1
nation is looking for trouble anyway, it takes even less than
that. Japan has an intense national pride. More than that, her
industries demand the concessions in Manchuria. They are con
cessions that were secured as the result of many years of labor,
and the maintenance of these rights will be pursued with un
China, on the other hand, has no real national sentiment. Her
millions are dominated in turns and portions by the prevailing
political and military leaders. It is hard to say such a thing,
but a great war would probably do a lot or good for China. It
might serve to solidify the country and mold a national senti
ment. And while nationalism is not to be extolled beyond reason,
there is a necessity for such a spirit in a country in the dis
organized state of China.
But we are not speaking for war. The effects of armed con
flict are more far reaching than ever before. The good that
might result is far outweighed by the evil that is certain to
follow such a struggle. We would rather recommend communism
for China than war—a war that she would be almost certain
What is needed in this crisis to secure a peaceful settlement
of the Manchurian disputes is intelligent editorial leadership. The
newspapers of the world have it in their power to prevent war
in the East. The liberal splashing of war stories over the front
pages —stories made up in large part of rumors—can promote
the belligerence of the two countries involved more than any
other thing. Newspaper editors might be moved to guidance
in the interests of humanity rather than the pockettiook for a
Mr. Average Man Thinks
Perfectly in accord with the care
less student attitude was the ar
ticle on how to study for final
exams published in this morning's
Emerald. Professor Tuttle may
have meant his suggestions as the
best way out of an inevitable sit
uation. If so, well and good. The
fact remains, however, that crain
ing for final exams is never as
satisfactory as steady application
throughout the term.
Of course, there are many cours
es where one can get enough in
formation in a last week cram to
get by very comfortably on. The
courses might just as well have
never been carried, as far as the
value of the subject to the student
There’s not much use criticizing
any one part of the University cur
riculum. It is poorly organized and
fails absolutely in trying to pro
vide adequate education for all of
its students. Not that there aren't
lots of good courses and efficient
departments in the University .The
bad courses hinder the good ones
and are detrimental in themselves.

Two new ideas popped up yester
day in the football situation. An
International News service sports
writer wants to insure tiie football
players' lives at the expense of the
colleges and a letter to a local edi
tor says why not allow the athletes
to play professional sports in sum
Both are good ideas from a cer
tain point of view. As aids in the
general cleansing of the athletic
football situation they are value
less. There must be a revolution
ary change in the application pf
sports to college life. The whole
system is a mushroom, parasitic
growth that has risen over the lax
control given athletics by trus

One of the most powerful and

Gandhi, leader of the passive re

very, very cautiously and Mahat

to India to start the fight all over
again. Indian independence is a
certainty some day and Gandhi is
bringing it much closer than Eng

Today by Colonial Theater
Every card sent out by the Co
lonial in the unique stunt yester
day has a duplicate, and a lot of
free tickets will go to waste un
less the holders get busy on the
phone, it was stated by Russell
Brown, Colonial manager.
One ticket was mailed to each
man’s and woman's house, and all
that is necessary to do to get free
passes is for the holder of the
men’s tickets to call the women’s
houses until he finds the corre
sponding ticket. Then both can
come to the show today free.
The feature picture for which
the tickets are good is “Daybreak”

of dem “Football." One mob gets
a ball and tries to get it past de
udder mob and over a line marked
on de udder end of de field. Den
de udder mob tries to muscle in
and hijack the ball. Ya know, like

BOOKS OF THE DAY
EDITED BY ROY SHEEDY
GOLD FROM THE GROUND
A Buried Treasure. By Elizabeth
Madox Roberts. New York: The
REVIEW ED By GEORGE ROOT
The effect of Miss Roberts’
latest book is that of a very placid,
unconsequential dream that twists
and untwists itself ineffectively
and yet with a most graceful, del
icate and charming manner. It
has movement that is fog-like in
character and drifts from a tend
ency towards traditional realism
in the first of the book to merely
“A Buried Treasure” deals with
a middle-aged married couple who
discover on one of their farming
acres a buried kettle containing
some two thousand dollars and
two pearls. Quite prosaic, to be
sure, but if the reader can control
himself at that point and resist
an impulse to toss the book across
the room he will find, in the fol
lowing pages, the subtle charm,
the gentle “pastoral” continuity
that marks the book. The best

unnatural results that the money
has upon the couple and the inter
related activity of the other char

the story sweeps on to a close that
seems to the reader to be more
a leaving of the story than an
Miss Roberts’ style is the selling
quality of her book. It is rich in
lyrical feeling and yet poetically
“The small graveyard reached
in irregular curves and angles
across a lightly sunken hilltop.
The place was grown over with
stunted crab trees and thorns, and
a grapevine hung in a long festoon
from the top of an elm. The
weather had plucked little inden
tations unevenly over the stones
so that the letters cut there were
hard to decipher, for the carvings
fainted away continually into the
more mystical suggestions put
there by the elements. Some
crows were making soft, hoarse
cries on a farther hill, and now
and then the sound took on the
quality of a murmured human
speech that followed a low shrill
outcry, all being subdued.”
Otherwise than its beautiful
handling the story has little to
offer. One has the feeling that
it is a somewhat intangible back
ground without a central move
ment strong enough to justify its
