NEED OF DEMOCRACY
There is no reform more urgently
required from every point of view
than a great diffusion of education
among the people at large. Higher
mental training brings born leaders
to the front; but it does more than
this. It raises the standard of those
whom it molds. It solves automati-
cally our social problems. The well
educated man is not content with low
wages nor bad housing for himself
and his family. He knows how to
use his leisure time, and how to ob-
tain intimate companionship and
stimulation from the minds of great
ores who have revealed with restraint
in books, in his hours of labor he
works hard, and with concentrated
effort, because he recognizes it to
be his duty. The workman is not
less capable than others of being
filled with the spirit of Shakespeare
and Milton; with the lessons of
ancient history as well as modern,
with the realization of the relativity
of all knowledge as Plato and Spino-
za and the great English teachers of
recent times have exhibited; with the
sense of tremendous advances of
science since Francis Bacon wrote,
and as Dawin and Newton and even
Einstein in our own day, have de-
veloped them. He desires to know
what economics and the theory of
the state mean to man who studies
them in their entire field for the
sake of truth alone.

If you want to take home with you
some excellent taole etiquette whicn
we Know you neeu, some of the fol-
lowing rules and practices are in
vogue at me Caieteria now, and we
are sure that some of them may be
of help to you:
1. Show your college training by
pusning as many students out of the
line as possible, thus working u|p an
2. It is customary to block the line
as long as you please, trying to
ngure out what you want to eat, this
of course, is unnecessary as your
looks betray your appetite.
3. Grab your tray and eating im-
plements, pause long enough to make
a flying dive at the liquid garbage
counter, and be careful riot to upset
more than two glasses of tea and one
of milk, as this infuriates the dispen-
sers very much.
4. Be sure to tell the servers just
exactly how to dish out your grub,
as they are just merely “P.H.D.’s”
m their line.
5. As you pass the salad and pas-
try counter, it is good etiquette to
gouge your fingers in as many dishes
as possible, then smell—“your nose
6. All those who have taken courses
in higher mathematics are supposed
to wrangle with the cashier, thus put-
ting theory into practice.
7. On account of the many natives
eating at the “Calf,” you are liable
to trip over one of them, spilling a
glass of buttermilk upon a bending
Aurora Borealis, thus necessitating a
much needed bath.
8. Examine your eating utensils in
o.ruer to see that your knife is not too
sharp—safety first—you might am-
putate your tongue, and you know
what a serious handicap this would
mean to the female of the species.
9. In holding your fork perpen-
dicular becareful that you don’t push
out the bottom of your plate, you
night split the board underneath.
10. tlse no exertion in eating,mere-
ly crumple in your chair to the level
of your plate, rake it in, nobody is
looking—“efficiency” is our motto.
11. Don’t tilt your plate at a wiiy
five degree angle to g< t me
use a sponge, it’s lots less trouble,
and doesn’t make near as much
12. When you take your tray back
be sure and leave your cigar stub—•
help the K. P’s.

would the second run into the first.”

key.” (And he did.)
