BEtS EDITORIAL COMMENT
Fritz Kreisler the great violinist recently stated that he
was sorry for the young people of today because "there is no
romanticism for them." He observed "from the start they
are face to face with stern necessities leaving no time for the
foolish little romantic things we did when I was younger."
Fritz Kreisler is
an interviewer for a bit of publicity. The same line of bush-
wah is being dinned into our ears and eyes day after day from
all directions except from the youth itself but from aging
ex-romanticists like Kreisler who have seen their own youth
go vanishing and imagine all youth is dead.
In fact we would go so far as to criticize condemn and
feel sorry for those decrepid individuals who are continually
bemoaning and bewailing the fact that "the good old days are
gone forever." We agree that for that type of individuals
they are gone and gone forever.
There never has been a time in the history of the world
when youth did not have to make its way. If the time ever
comes we might as well knock the world in the head and
"jump off into space" for life will no longer be worth living
especially for the youth.
For our part we believe youth is just as romantic just as
self-reliant and just as dependable today as it ever was.
More so in fact for today's youth is better equipped for the
struggle of existence and has fewer illusions with which to
dispense. We have no sympathy whatever for the school of
thought which imagines that youth has to be coddled. The
youth of today ignores those individuals who have put on a
little weight around the middle and sit around belittling the
youth with "Now when I was young . . ." The old fogy who
stands in the middle of the road and bewails the hard fate of
today's young people won't stand there long . . . but will be
overstepped by the crowd of young people on its way to the
future and success.
Myth of College
the extent generally portrayed that "collegiate daze." It's
about time someone tried once and for all to dispel the myth
of the carefree college boy a variety now almost as instinct
as the buffalo.
The college boy people who are out of college or have
never been there will tell you lives a life which runs the
gamut from pure job to the ultimate in rhapsodic existence
and the Sunday magazine sections picture him with glass in
hand his lips creased in a gay smile while a number of beau-
tiful women parade past him like so much beef on hoof. The
motion pictures are doing their level best to prolong the
life of this popular fiction and thousands of girls who stand on
their feet all day behind the counters from Worchester to
Oshkosh find their own particular heaven in watching for
some clean cut god of the Tom Brown spocies cavort through
a land overflowing with evening clothes and exciting football
finishes strewing his fraternity pins behind him.
The fact is that college boys work hard take a Saturday
night off for relaxation like to sit by the fire and read the
newspaper are ugly or good looking as the case may be have
their domestic troubles with their roommates get broke do
or do not like their eggs flopped over and call Mr. Roosevelt
names even as any average citizen who lives uphill and goes
to work on Main Street.
A happy medium is desired by today's youth especially
the college youth. We do not experience any lack of romanti-
cism but do not find in that light portrayed by the magazines
moving pictures and fiction ; we are not bored to death by a
routine plan of struggle for existence but rather enjoy life
in a well-balanced program work and play mixed to a proper
and conventional degree seeking the best in life and best in
preparation for later life.

Candid Campus Cracks!
It never fails to happen. Always about this time of the
year our little boys and girls have strung out in pairs. Tis
indeed a touching sight to stand
supper and watch the hapless victims oi mat ureanen scourge
known as the S. A. file out two by two. They seem entirely
unaware of their doleful plight. Well all I can say is that
when you nave uvea as rong an
James Minor and I you'll have
learned better. 'Tis better to have
loved and left than never to have
left at all.
If you witnessed the Jacket-
Indian tussle of last Friday night
no doubt you noticed dining the
numerous time-outs n yellow
stienk preceding each "gnrgllng
bee" indulged in by our thirsty
gild warriors. Now this yellow
streak wasn't down anybody's
back but was just a blur that
bteezed out from the Jacket bench.
Well I'll tell you what it was. It
was none other than the colorful
figure of Frederick (Moon) Mul-
llns bedecked with a yellow jersey
whisking a slug or two of H-'-'-O
to the battlers of the blue and
gold. Yes sir. Moon Is the very
capable successor to Hungry How-
ard as manager of Payne's grid
great and our nominee for all-
Texiis conference water dlsher-
cuter. Incidentally Moon slings a
wicked toe and can whirl with the
best of the rug-slicers.

Levlsay. McBrlde also seems to
whip up frequent deals with Mar-
garet Denman . . . Can one of
those winds that blow nobody good

one of those "flatonlc" affairs?

Quotation of tne week . . .
Sonny Smith comes out with the
following barefaced statement:

dent and publisher of the Dallas Morning .news upon com-
ninn nf rk vpars of unbroken service with one newspaper
organization. No leader in American journalism can match
that record. There has been much more in that career than
the success story of the $3-a-week office boy who rose to the
presidency of a great newspaper and is still active at the age
of 80. A framed motto once hung in the elevator of the Gal-
veston News building that stated that every institution is the
lengthening shadow of one man. Now hanging in the elevator
of the Dallas Morning News is the sign: "Responsibilities
gravitate to the person who can shoulder them: Power flows
to the man who knows how." Elbert Hubbard. George Ban-
nerman Dealey's place in American Hall of Journalism Fame
is assured. He shouldered his responsibilities: the English
lad of 1870 has become the dean of American journalism. No
more fitting a tribute could be paid by American newspaper-dom.
Richard Halliburton American adventurer and author is
legally dead. A jury verdict states that Halliburton sank in
a Chinese junk during a typhoon while sailing from Hong
Kong to San Francisco. Halliburton who has left the world
several of its most outstanding adventure books was truly
a unique and unusual man. His was a daring sort of curios-
ity a small boy's dreams carried to the realms of a realism
by the man. While most men merely dream of performing
miracles Halliburton's unnatural supply of venture drove
him to action not to suppressed desire. His life was the
fulfillment of the desire at one time or another of every jour-
nalist. Withstanding the fact that he capitalized on his wan-
derings with a series of books with alliterative titles and a
profitable lecture tour who can help but envy a man who
imitated the travels of Ulysses Hannibal and died doing what
he wanted to do.
Recently America lost one of its most colorful figures in
journalism. Amecica honors the memory of Floyd Gibbons
ace headline hunter whose "beat" covered the entire world.
His wide popularity depended solely upon his own personality
as it was expressed in his written word his rapid fire radio
comments and more recently his motion picture features.
Gibbons was typical of this hazardous profession in which so
many have lost their lives; his death though peacefully at
home came as a result of overtaxing his strength over a
period of years. He looked upon violence and bloodshed sub-
jectively as does every good reporter and accepted danger
with a calm courage that carried him through innumerable
incidents in which a man of less fortitude would have perished.
His name will live in American journalism.
