IN THE BATHTUB
"Leach you are forever howling
about keeping clean and I bet you
don't know how much soap is used In
the United States every year" ribbed
one of my most worry-wartlsh
friends. But for once I knew. There
are on an average of 3000000000
pounds of soap and soap compounds
used annually in the United States.
Yes I agree that this Is an enor-
mous lot of soap 115 plus pounds
per individual but It is not enough
to keep us thoroughly clean. At least
not outwardly and inwardly. I have
about made up my mind that there is
really nothing wrong with the world;
it's the people of the world that make
it all confusing and Immoral. And
no soap has been Invented to wash
the mouths of the foul minded.
Yesterday I had the misfortune to
be In the company of a cursing (at
least not a lady) girl. In all the at-
tempts I have made In efforts to be
the most profane I have never even
remotely reached the level this young
girl attained at a single outburst. She
was the foulest of the foul and from
what I would term from a very fine
family she has a sweet mother and
a fine father. But there Is no Hoap
strong enough to cleanse her mouth.
She Is off on the wrong foot.

There is the one little thing that has
not been considered by any of them:

The "Torpedo" Egg
All of us have read about that far
mer's hen that laid the "torpedo" egg
recently? The farmer said that nacK
before the World War one of his hens
laid a similar egg and that he Imme-
diately predicted war In the very near
future. He was right we did have
war and what a war. This farmer
says that there will bo another war

What I am driving at Is that we

and resemblance to a modern torpe-

Bring A Dime to
Get Your Punch at
the Jr.-Sr. Prom
Though one may not be aware of
the fact it takes money to put on a
good prom. Many of the faculty
members and all of the students have
expressed their desires that Daniel
Baker have a good prom this year.
It has been suggested by one of the
sponsors that every Daniel Baker stu-
dent attending the prom bring ten
cents to cover his share of the re-
freshments. This will leave the
amount the college gives to decorate
the gym and furnish entertainment.
It is asking very little of one to give a
dime for a dollar's worth of fun.
Just bring the first dime you get
out of the exchange of these chain
letters to pay your admission by
the time the date rolls around for the
prom you will have received quite a

CHICAGO. "Freedom of inquiry
freedom of discussion and freedom ot

president of the University of Chica-

over a nultonal radio hook-up.
( Answevliw llij.quPBtion "What in a

ed that "A university Is a community
of scholars. It is not u kindergarten;
it is not a club; it is not a reform

not' an agency of propaganda."
Without freedom a university be-
comes a political party or an agency
of propaganda and ceases to be a uni-
versity President Hutchlns said.
Continuing he declared that "the
university exists only to find and to
communicate the truth. If it cannot
do that it Is no longer a university."
In concluding the speaker said
"The Aineiican people must decide
whether they will longer tolerate the
seatch for truth. If they will the uni-
