The Day’s Parade
___By Fred fm.-ig- - -
TO think that the dove of peace will come out
of the conference at Stresa all freshly white
and inspiring is to be a foolish idealist. Indeed,
what hope of peace can be .seen in a conclave
that has ah the markings of a council of war?
Mussolini, flying a giant amphibian plane,
like a marauding eagle swoops down from the
sky to light upon the lake at Stresa. What peace
ful tidings does he bring? He brings the plan he
outlined the other day at Rome. He insists upon
the guarantee of Austrian independence, as if
it were not true that he represents one of the
major threats to that independence, as if it were
not transparent that he fears German extension
And for France to talk peace- how silly!—
with her border from Belgium to Switzerland
bristling, piled high with concrete and steel and
alive with blue-tunicked men, dickering on the
sly with Russia, voting millions for war, her
politicians every day raving delirious militarism.
Russia peaks over the fence, angles with
France in a very tentative manner, not wishing
to commit herself until she knows what she can
get out of the Stresa conversations. Conferring
diplomats must tread softly in eastern Europe if
they want to touch Russia, was the admonition
that issued from Moscow the other day.
Germany is a subject not admitted to the
polite conversation of nations. Into the wound she
is making by her abrogation of the arms re
strictive provisos of the treaty of Versaille she
now would pour the salt of demanding restoration
of her pre-war colonial power. And her poorly
concealed lust for extension along the Baltic
has the rest of Europe almost apoplectic.
Britain’s romantic Anthony Eden races over
the continent trying, it is said, to arrange peace
for Europe. Great Britain got into the ill regard
of France, Italy and Russia by not showing
enough anger at Germany’s treatment of the
Versaille treaty. It might be suspected that Eng
land, rather than being purely altruistic in pur
pose, is trying to find where she stands in this
militaristic jockeying for power.
How right was the European manager of the
United Press who said that never before in the
history of the world has there been such a
pressure for wrarl

sistant, Miss Mary E. Stone.
You should see the issues of the
weekly papers to sense the curious
and appreciative interest centered
in those new college professors,
and the laudatory excerpts quoted
from the newspapers of their for
mer houses. Their property pur
chases are mentioned and the very
considerations itemized. The Fac

new toys and the townspeople ver
itable children in their acquisition.
The hurrying years of a subse
quent half-century have erased ev

which we used to associate with
our First Faculty. Churches now

semi-sacred precincts,—the Con

One of history’s great tragedies
—the destruction of Pompeii by
an eruption of Mount Vesuvius
in the year it)—will be recalled in
! graphic fashion next Sunday, in a
special trans-Atlantic broadcast
over the Columbia network. The
broadcast, the first ever scheduled
from the ruined city of Pompeii,
12 miles southeast of Naples, will
be heard here between 9:45 and
10 a. m.
The date of the Emerald radio
contest hasn’t been announced, but
it's to be begun not niore than
three weeks from now. Woody
Truax, who's managing it, says
that the cash prizes will be greater
than they have ever been in the
past. Last year Sigma hall, win

It’s an ultra-short wave radio telephone antenna—before
being raised above the dunes of Cape Cod.
For some years. Bell System engineers have been studying
ultra-short waves. They have developed automatic trans
mitters and receivers which may be connected with regular
telephone lines at points far from central offices. They hope
such radio links will be useful in giving telephone service
to points dimcult to reach
by usual methods.
The installation on Cape
Cod—which is now under
goiug service tests — is just
one more example of Bell
