music, but good music." In some
way and against the greatest of
odds. Miss Hager said Prof. Hob
son was able to teach a "certain
sense of values by which one
could always tell : good music."
She continued "W did not have
any opportunities to hear good
music there in that little . college
town, so Prof. Hobson sot Tic

to good moaie hi such manner."
"He did such a splendid piece
of leaching so far as I was con

Miss Hager. "He has the power

Aliens subject to the Quota re
strictions of the immigration laws
were held today by the supreme
court in a unanimous decision to
be prohibited from freely entering
this country to work.
The question, regarded as of

court In contending that they had
tbe right to cross the Canadian
border to work upon the presenta
tion of an identification card and
with the quota provisions. The two
insisted that under article S of the
Jay treaty, they were free at all
times to cross the boundary sad
farther argued that they were ex

The federal district court sus
tained the government in its con
tention that while native born
Canadians were entitled to freely
cross the border without regard
to quota restrictions,, naturalised
Canadians were not. The circuit
court of appeals, however, took
the view that the aliens coming
here daily to labor for hire were
visiting the country on business
and were not immigrants.
