THE FALL OF DIAZ.
Felix Diaz and the staff of his revo
lutionist army have been captured.
Two of the officers hae been shot,
two more are waiting execution and
Diaz has been summoned before the
court martial and sentenced to death.
The capture of Vera Cruz by Ma-
dero's troops was a surprise. Many
Americans had begun to doubt the
success of the federal army. There
may still be some trouble with rebels
throughout Mexico but it seems cer
tain that the Diaz power is crushed.
His plan to bring, his Uncle Porflrio
Diaz back to rule Mexico has been
The rule of the uncle before ex
iled was one of the most tyrannical
in modern times. There were no
such things as freedom of speech or
a free press. Elections were staged
as farces. The peasants were really
slaves and the slaves were not pro
tected from brutality by law.
Just now Mexico has a brighter fu
ture than it has had for a long time
past. The country is free from the
danger of one tyrant at least. There
is a possibility now of a government
which will hae some stability and
will guarantee the protection of the
fundamental human rights of the citi
THE INTELLECTUALLY BAREFOOT
Barefooted, a Pennsylvania million
aire who recently died, used to carry
his shoes in his hand as he walked
over the costly rugs with which he
had filled his mansion. We are in
clined to smile, perhaps a trifle sneer
ingly, at the too-saving disposition of
the man who was afraid to use his
But how about the student who goes
intellectually barefoot by spending
money for a textbook which he fails
to open all semester? ,
THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
The small public library of Colum
bia, maintained by the Tuesday Club,
during the last year had a circulation
of 3S14, which is more than double
that of the year previous. The li
brary is open only two hours on two
days each wek. The library is not
advertised to .any extent, yet each
hour that it is open the librarian has
all that she can do.
Do these facts not foretell the es
tablishment of a distinct library build
ing in Columbia? The public needs
and wants it.
TO GOVERN WIRELESS TALK.
There are persons living today who
laughed at what they thought a great
joke in 1876 -when the news was pub
lished that Bell had invented an in
strument with which two persona
could converse over a wire a mile
long. Many of those who laughed at
that statement are now reading about
the law passed by the last Congress
to regulate wireless communication.
This new method of communicating
has come to have such a wide use
in this country and throughout the
world that some limitations and con
trol have been considered necessary.
This law will control more than 400 J
United States Teasels having wireless
equipment, about 100 commercial sta
tions, several hundred stations at dif
ferent schools and experiment sta-
tions and several thousand stations
owned by amateur operators. All
persons who operate beyond the boun
daries of a state must have a federal
license under this law, which goes
into effect December 14.
This law will affect and govern per
sons who .in their earlier days, ridi-
culed the idea of talking over a wire
and never dreamed of communicating
at a distance through the air. Those
same persons at their social gather,-
ings used to laugh at that poem,

diculous then a commonplace reality
But the present generation is scof- and those arbitrarily included on ac-

may laugh at our incredulity.

meeting of the Yale Corporation. The
university budget for this year calls
for an expenditure of $1,350,000.
The zoological museum of the Uni
versity of Indiana has a collection of
forty-seven specimens of birds col
lected by Col. Theodore Roosevelt.
The birds were prepared while Roose
velt was 15 to 18 years old. Jtost or
the specimens were collected in the
Adirondack Mountains, but one or
two were taken by him in Palestine.
Inter-fraternity trouble has broken
out at the University of Chicago.!
Alpha Delta Phi, after being con
victed of tampering with the pledged
men of several other members of the
fraternity council, was forbidden to
pledge any freshmen for the next
three quarters of the college term.
This edict was backed up by the uni
versity faculty, who declared the of
fense to be a serious one. The Alpha
Delta representative said that his
chapter would probably withdraw
from the council.
The William Jewell Student, the
college paper at Liberty, Mo., re
quests the academic students in that
school to refrain from using the con
tribution box of the paper as the
United States mail box. Since it has
reen running in competition with
Uncle Sam, the paper declares it has
received some very interesting corre
spondence, including 87 complaints
against the faculty, 11 plans for re
organizing the school into a co-educational
institution, 109 requests for
money, 18 orders for an English

THE NEW BOOKS
Books of Adientnre.
"The Pioneer Days of the Ohio" is
the title of a book written by Har
rison Adams. It is the first of a se
ries to be known as "The Young
Pioneer Series," and deals with the
adventures of a family of pioneers
in the early days of our country when
the settlers were beginning to push
their way out into the primitive coun
try beyond the Alleghany Mountains.
The story deals particularly with
the many adventures of two young,
independent and courageous boys of
the type created by the stern neces
sities of the time. It is a story of
conflicts with Indians, wild animals,
floods, forest fires and other perils
which beset the wilderness. It is
pleasingly told and holds the reader's
The book contains more than 300
pages and is illustrated. (L. C. Page
and Company, 53 Beacon street, Bos
