THE CO-EDS CAN HELP
One dollar for a chrysanthemum is
rather high, considering that the flor
ists sell "mums" at 50 cents apiece
save on Homecoming Day or Thanks
giving. Knowing beforehand that the
demand will be heavier on these oc
aisons, they could sell under the
regular price instead of doubling it.
It will be objected that the young
man is not forced to buy. And he is
not by economic necessity. But
pride in treating his girl as well as
his friends treat their girls (and a
little better possibly) permits no
choice but to pay the price of the oc
casion, one dollar two dollars, to
stick to fact, for the youg man. buys
either none or two mums.
A little tact is necessary to stop
this imposition, too small to be called
profiteering. The matter is too triv
ial for the fa'culty. Pride prevents
the young men from speaking out.
The girls, however, might pass round
the word to one another to let their
escorts know, before they have placed
orders, that one dollar mums are not

THE CASE OF SOYIET RUSSIA
The policy of non-intervention is
inbred in American political tradition.
For this reason it is difficult for us
to countenance our government's
present attitude with regard to so
viet Russia. Not only, however, has
our army inYaded.a country without
formal declaration of war, but the
government has adopteJ a policy
which disallows commercial inter
course between the United States and
The contention for this attitude
briefly stated is as foliovs: (11 That
the Russian soviet government "has
availed itself of every opportunity to
initiate in the United States a propa
ganda aimed to bring about forcible
o erthrow of the present form of gov
ernment in the United States" and
that gold brought into the United
States from Russia through commer
cial transactions would be used to
sustain such propaganda, and: (2)
. that because of the nationalization of
the foreign trade in Russia, and be
cause food allegedly is being dis
tributed according to class lines for
the purpose of the maintainance of
the bolsheviki in power, trade with
soviet Russia would become a med
ium of "sustaining the bolsheviki and
their program of political oppres
sion." It is ridiculous to presume that a
young and unstable government, such
as Russia now has, finds time and
energy to spend on overthrowing a
strong and settled government, such
as ours. The people of Russia now
are finding it difficult even to exist
and are busily engaged in providing
rood for themselves and in maintain
ing and establishing firmly the gov
ernment which they now have.
On the other hand, the United States
and other nations have installed
points of attack in soviet Russia.
from which an attempt is being made
to roment trouble against the exist
ing government of that land. The
United States has severed trade re
lations asserting that such inter
course would sustain the bolsheviki
and their policy of political oppres
sion. This, to quote from L. A. Mar
tens, representative to the United
States of the Russian socialist federal
soviet republic, is "quite a novel de
parture in international politics inas
much as it undertakes to determine
what kind of government the people
ui nussia may establish."
The Russian government in what
ever form it exists should be granted
the privilege of evolving to its possi

I THE NEW BOOKS
"Sociology and Modern Social Prob
lems." The third edition of Dr. Charles A.
Ellwood's book on "Sociology and
Modern Social Problems" is off the
press. This book, which "was orig
inally intended for an elementary text
for high schools, colleges and read
ing circles, has had an unusually
wide use throughout the country. The
new edition has maintained the gen
eral plan and organization of the
work, which is based on the workings
of the "chief factors In social organ
ization and evolution; especially
through the study of the origin, de
velopment, structure and functions of
the family, considered as a typical hu

Doctor Ellwood, "has been to relate

THANKSGIVING MAIL HEAYY
Many Boxes of Foodstuff and Special
Delivery Letters Handled.
More than 200 special delivery let
ters were received at the postoffice
yesterday and with a goal 'many

heavier than usual,
Many boxes were delivered on the
morning delivery, but many more
came In too late for delivery and were
of necessity held over night at tho
postoffice, as there was no afternoon
delivery Thursday afternoon. These
were sent out yesterday morning.
'Mjany boxes were sent to students
who are out of town, mostly to the
Thanksgiving game at Lawrence, Kan.
and were therefore not delivered.
Postmaster L. J. Hall said that all
surplus mail sacks had beeni called in
by the postoffice department, and
postmasters have been asked to get
along with just as few sacks as possi
ble, so that there will be plenty of
sacka for emergency In the Christmas
trade, which gives indications of
reaching unprecident limits.
He emphasizes the necessity of
placing street addresses on mail, arl
asks that students inform their corre
spondents to do so. He also asks that
return addresses be placed on all
mall. Many letters and packages
which are undellverable are held
here, because people fail to do this.
Mr. Hall thinks it is time to begin
thinking about the selection, pur
chase and mailing of Christmas pres
ents, especially where packages must
be sent to China or Japan, wrapped so
should be securely wrapped and tied.
Not Jong ago a package containing
fresh eggs was sent from home to a
student in the University. When the
package arrived the eggs were already
scrambled, and were scattered over
the other contents of the mail sack. A
similar instance was that of a pack
age which contained a glass jar of
honey, aipples, and cake. It w-as sent
from home to a college girl, and when
it arrived the contents were scattered
throughout the mail sack. The hofley
stuck to everything with which it
came in contact. The glass jar was
broken into fragments, which were
mixed in with the honey.
uur. jian said tnat packages are
frequently brought to the postoffice to
'be sent tcChina or Japan, wrapped so
poorly that they would be doing good
to get as far as Kansass City, with
out being broken. Postoffice officials
have instructions to examine the con-
