Sub T Rcet Carrier
Of Gay Cargo
With ail posts manned and a
guest tucked here and there Sat-
urday afternoon the good ship
Tus'corora flagship for a fleet of
rollicking Sub T barges bowed
herself from stem to helm and1
leaped at 'ii swelling emerald sea
carrying a happy land-sick cargo'
to the fantasies and beauties or
Now a barso saucily swerving
and making a subway of a moun-J
teainous wave and now a clank
ing barge creaking in every tim-
ber as site sinks to axle tewice on
limber springs but every captain
with a weather eye on the watery
road the fleet went bounding
bounding on. '
Sayles Cove mountain climbing
and mountain sliding boulder
tossing and "let's-all-ge't-on-the-tabic
rock (always room for one
more and that's Lucille)" foot-
ball and grass burrs a sip and a
gargle at the fountain of youth
merry rides on fore-decks (fend-
ers) and the cook says "There it
is take it or leave it."
Sharpshooting and face-slap
ping punning and punting and
the mariners and guests made'
whoopee. Two gobs walked the
plank for amusement and later!
stood up for comfort.
So free of barnacled thoughts
of recitations and bilgewater mem-l
ones of assignments the cargo j
caught again their youtti and
courted him for an evening.
But night fell and a heavy-aea
was risiqg so again to decks and
again to watery roads and once
more in Campus Cove where cares
lay where care free thoughts went
by the boards to be regained an-

tional work based on findings of
scientists of the effects of alcohol
on the human race will soon be
launched. A field force is being
organized for the purpose of using
The foundation's own announce-
ment of its organization said in
"There arises some confusion in
the use of the word 'temperance.'
We have adopted the definition
given the word by the great Greek
historian Xenophon about 400 B.l
C that is 'Temperance means
first moderation in healthful in-
dulgences; and second abstinence
from tilings dangerous as the use
of intoxicating wines."
Cox and Stephenson made it
clear that they are still bone dry !
but that they Wished to do all pos-
sible to promote temperance as per
the foundation's definition since
liquor is coming back. President
"We shall try to profit from the
drys' mistakes of the past. The dry
cause has been guilty of shock-
ingly poor strategy in losing both
its temper and sense of balance
over the liquor question. That
has I feel certain helped to pro-
duce the public reaction that is
wiping out the 18th amendment.
It is not liquor itself but is habit-
forming propensity that hat
brought misery to the American
people. In my father's house we
had liquor available at all time
and he always told us if we had
to drink to do it at home. Re-
suit was it never mastered us it
meant nothing to us.
"Education a commonsense re-
vealing of the fact of dangers from
over-indulgence with emphasis on
total abstinence for the sake of
ene's health is the answer I
think since repeal has been vir-
erfut climax during the actual run-
ning of the race. Cast includes

BOHUMI KRYL WILL
APPEAR .IN CITY
Bohumi Kryl famous Czecho
Slovakian bandmaster will appear
in Simmons auditorium Thursday
evening of next week with his in-
ternationally known symphonic
band. ' Forty eminent musicians
compose the symphony which has
appeared in important cities
throughout the country. It is now
in its 29th season.
The organization is especially
noted for its refined interpreta-
tion of the great symphonies. By
emphasizing the more delicate in-
struments and placing the brasses
in the background the music ef-
fects that of a symphonic orches-
tra rather than a band.
Besides the evening perform-
ance a matinee is scheduled to ac-
commodate school children and
bands from neighboring schools.
Kryl is a dynamic figure in
modern music. Aside from band-
ma'stering his versatility has led
him through such colorful careers
as sculptory cornctist and circus

sical comedy which as a stage
show ran 52 consecutive weeks on

star studded production in which
it is said that every star is an en-
tertainer and every entertainer a
star. The cast is chock full of box
office names and includes James
Dunn Cliff Edward June Knight
Lillian Roth Buddy Rogers Doro-
thy Lee Lillian Bond and Lona
Andre. There are also 100 gor-
geous show girls not to mention a

Thetes Pathos as
Well as Jov When
Mail is Received
Have you noticed the expres-
sions on the faces of students as
they come from the post office?
Why arc some radiant with hap-
piness and why do others express
the opposite of this virtue? You
have already guessed the answer.
The first has a letter in his hand
and a greenback in his pocket; the
other leaves empty handed. One
is reading the promise of a pack-
age; another frowning because he
has not received the package
promised over a week ago.
From the time the mail is re-
ceived in the morning at nine un-
til it is handed out in the after-
noon at five there is an anxious
anticipation in the heart of every
campus student. If he knows he
never has received any mail in the
morning he must look in his box
just to satisfy himself. Either he
leaves believing thatjjis parents
are the greatest and best in the
world or he leaves knowing they
have completely forgotten him.
But if there is no letter tonight
perhaps he might get two in the
morning. If the package has not
arrived yet maybe mother is
planning to put a little more in
it this time. Anyway the home-
town newspaper will be there.
So if patience and long-suffering
arc characteristic of Christi-
ans what an opportunity has been
given to the boys and girls of
A. C. C.I
Be Ye Perfect Mt. 5:43-48.
Men had been taught to love
their neighbor and to hate their
enemy but Jesus commanded that
one love his enemy and pray for
thoscw ho despiteful ly use you
that you may the sons of your
father in heaven. He named this
as a condition upon which one
could be perfect as the father. He
did not set the standurd ton.liinli.
No one lives whom the Christian
has the right to hate. j
