THE OLD GRADUATE
For years cartoonists, comedians,
and playwrights have used the sub
ject of the "old grad" as a means 1y
inhich to cause, the public to enjoy
a hearty laugh, for years this well
known collegian has been the one
feature of college life that has clearly
1een an institution in himself. Here
fit Missouri this week there are hun
dreds of "old grads" returned each
train brought back to the scene of
their youthful pleasures the men who
are today making the name "Mis
souri" stand for something in the
great outside world.
The "old grad" is a good natured

pokes of fun that are directed at him.

An Oklahoma dispatch tells of the
part played by several gallons of wine
in a grand jury probe. Which is

bothered so In the past. ,
The cost of $50,000,000 a day, the

This Is a war of endurance. From
East to West plundering must cease,
and profit must be taken from prof

Starting with a discussion of the
Japanese instinct of self-preservation
in which he shows that the aggressive
policy of Japan since her doors were
forced open by Commodore Perry in
1854 has been due to the absolute
necessity for expansion, the author in
turn takes up America's issues with
Japan the question of whether Ameri
ca is preparing against Japan, Japa
nese immigration to America and the
various other phases of the Japan
America problem. In all the discus
sions the author shows the results of
his twenty years spent as a social re
former in Japan and the years spent
in the United States.
Most of the chapters of this book
were originally published as separate
articles in American magazines. The
articles have been grouped by the
author in an effort to "serve both
Japan and the United States, and all
mankind by removing some of the
misunderstandings now casting a
dark shadow upon the relationship of
the two nations." He who would be
well informed on this matter ot such
great importance will read this new
