Muckraking has a place In the college
llletary magazine provided it concerns
hut' ";-,'lf with the problems of tile college and
Is done decently. This Is the conclusion
.of the editors of magizlnes In nine of
the eastern colli ges, who met In their
first annual ennfennce at Columbia I'nl
verslty jisteiday. The subject was
brought up for discussion by Miss Freda
ICIrcliwey. editor of the Kuiiniiif Collate
Hi or, and a daughter of I'rof, Ceorgo W.
Klrihwe), former dean of the Columbia
law school, J. II. Putnam, editor of the
Conn II Km, seconded Miss Klrchwey's
"If the mucktaklng Is broadening In
scope and ciltlclses Justly and fearlessly
and liases Its criticisms on facts it surely
has a place In the college magazine,"
said Mls.e Klrchwey
Tin- editors also decided that advertls
Ing In the college magazines Is not graft
but Is of In in lit to the advertisers.

against depriving the Speaker of his powi r
to appoint committee;!.
Borne of the other recommendations were
that the Assembly should consider no
new bills In the lust three days of the
esalon except on message from the Senate
or emergency message from the (lovcrnor:
that all committee meetings should
be open to the public and that every
bill ahall be accompanied by a slatement

The Longy New York Modern Chamber
Music Society brought Its long name and
airay of Instruments to the front oncn
again last evening, when Its second con
cert took place In Aeolian Hall, The pro
gramme conslHted of Kmmnnuel Moor's
suite, opus 103, for flute, ohoe, clarinet,
liorn, bassoon, two violins, viola, 'cello
and double bass. This wrm followed hy
Henry Woollett's C sharp minor sonata
for 'cello und pluno played by J, Keller
ami Carolyn Heels'. The final number was
Jean lime's pastorale for three flutes,
oboe, engllsh horn, two clarinets, horn,
two bassoons and piano.
The two programmes thus far offered by
Mr. Longy have been pleasing In themselves
and also as diversion from the dally
routine of recitals nnd orchestral concerts.
The composition may not lie epoch mak
ing, but they are refreshing. The artists
engaged In their pcrfoimance are musi
cians nf luge accomplishment, and (ho
general qrsulls niu most ugreeable.
