THE SHOUT SESSION

discussion on the appropriation bills and
especially on thexnormous bums asked
for army and navy will tale up all the
titae remains to be teen. It is certain
however, that few of the organisations
that stand behind measures for greater
efficiency in 'government or for social wel
fare provisions can hope for results until
the regular scsion.
One outstanding bill awaiting the at
tention of Congress is that regarding in
dustrial legislation. It will receive add
ed impetus from the report cf the Presi
dent's industrial conference. The fact
that Hoover and other distinguished Re-1
publicans are identified with the con-jarawer for himself.to a marked degree,

demands for the rebuilding of the United
Slates Emploment Service, which is now
almost non-existent. The essential char

FIRES 'AND ECONOMIC LOSSES
ThiJ country U tke foremost fire ic-
tim of tbeSrorldri according to the sta-
tistics collected by the National Board of j The School of Journalism has its. news
lire Underwriters. In tlie first decade P'P" P,ln d bailding as a practical
of this centuryihe fire loss per capita
of America ranged from f 2 to $3, where
as in the-principal countries of Europe
it averaged only 33 cents.
New York City s one of the places
where human lives and properties are
wasted most, either alcntionally or care
lessly. The -tenement fire takes p'ace
every second in that big metropolis. The
cause in most cae has been found out
to be carelessness.
Last year America paid a toll of 1,500
lives, victims of firea, and $300,000,000
of property. Our dailies vividly illustrate
the alarming menace to our economic
prosperity. Most of the losses were pre
ventahle. Edward T. Crocker, chief of the New
York firf department for twelve jean,
and fortwenly-seven years fire fighter,
m few years ago concluded that putting
out successive fires was futile, We could
employ 3ie.bt.appartus fot extinguish

counteract ibe effects of the flames, tad

ness cur; efforts would be of no avaiL

number of fires is noticed, but. this de -
cline is admitted to be slight. We should
detote more attention to fire prevention;
ne should derisc efixient methods of fire
fighting and should in0uer.ee our state
3nd city legislators to pass stringent
laws as to the punishment of willfully
negligent and carders citizens. Wei
should be watchful and careful with fire

THE PRICE OF SUCCESS
Success is the dream of every human
mind. When we first begin to formulate
ideas of what we wish our lhcs to be, we1
begin wishing for success. That word
success may mean accumulation o!

cal or social prominence. ' '
However, what success mean i!erttnrU

has its price. It rs always on the mar-
ket. We can glance tirocgh-the plate j
jlasj, windows of yesterday .and see peo-1
pie who are called encceoses or we can
pause today and ebserve those who arc
known to lead sacceasful lives.

cf practical training for the students of
that school? "
Would, it not be possible to establish
a student bask in that school as a labor
atory for commerce students? The banks
of the city do not especially solicit stu
dent accounts. In fact, student business
is a Io o mat hanks if we figure it
purely from the dollar and cent stand
point. A bank established in the School of
Business and Public Administratioa
would take care of all student accounts.
Students could depesit their money there
