I lire up a ilny -dream nf I'orn In loud la mentation, while he led the laughter of the s tutors. Itut graduiilly hla feeling about her came to be merely a dull oppression, lie was tired of hav iig to lisik nt her (as be stnted It) and he thanked the I.ord that the time wouldn't be so long now until he'd be out of that ole school, and then nil he'l have to do he'd Just take care never to walk by her house. It whs easy enough to Use some other afreet when he had to go down town. "The good ole class of Nineteen - I Fourteen Is about gone." be said to Fred Milihell. who was still Ids most Intimate friend when they reached the senior year. "Yes, sir; It's held to gether a g I many years. Fred, but after June It'll he busted plum up. and I hope nobody starts a move to have any reunions. There' n good many members of the ole class that I run stand nml there's some I can't, but there's one I Just won't! If we ever illil cull a reunion, that ole Yv cum girl would start In right avvay atul run the whole shebang, and that' where I'd resign! You know, Fred, the thing I think la the one biggest beuehl of graduating from this ole school ? If never aeeln' I'ora Y'ocuin again." Thia was again Ida theme as he sat by the same friend's aide, In the rear, row of the class at Commencement, listening to the delivery of the Vule db'tory. "Think ahe'a Just aoobllme, don't ahe!" he whispered morosely. "She wouldn't trade with the Presi dent of the Vnltcd State right now. Never mind! Just about a halfan hour more and that' the Inst o you, ole girl ! Yes, air, Fred ; one thing we ran feel pretty good over: thia la where we get through with I'ora Yo eum !" Itamsey and Fred had arranged to room together at Creelitield. the seat of the state university, and they made the short Journey In company the fol IowIiir September. They arrived hi larious, anticipating pleasurable ft cltemctits lu the way of "fraternity" pledging and Inltiutlons, encounters with sophomores, clusa meetings, utul elections; aud. also, they were not ah aolulely without Interest In the mutter nf lilrl. for the state university was coeducational, mid It waa but natural to expect In ao broad a Held, all new to them, a possible vision of something rather thrilling. They whispered cheerfully of all these tilings during the process of matriculation, and signed the registrar' book on a fresh page; but when Fred hud written hla name under I'mnscy' and blotted It, he took the liberty of turning over the leuf to examine some of the auto graph of their future classmate, written on the other able. Then he ut tered an exclamation, more droll than dolorous, Iln nigh It a ff ci ted to be whol ly the latter; for the shock to Fred waa by no means ao painful a It waa to hla friend. Itamsey leaned forward and read the name Indicated by Fred' fore finger IMIUA YtH'l'M. . . . When they got hack to their pleasant i-unrter at Mra.

This via bearable; and In th' flattering agitations of bring sought, mul even hunted, by several "fraternities" simultaneously desirous of bis becoming a sworn Unit her. be almost forgot her. After n hazardous mouth the roommates fell Into the arms of the last "frat" to seek them, nml having undergone an evening of I outrage which concluded with touch ing rhetoric and nn oath taken nt midnight, they proudly wore Jeweled I syuiiiois on iiieir nreasis nii.i were fn-e tu turn part of their attention to other affairs, especially the affairs of the I'lcvcll. However, they were Instructed by the older brethren of their tinier, whose duty It wns to assist In the proper tuaiieuverltig of their young ca reers, that, nil hough support of the 'varsiiy teams was Important, they must neglect neither the spiritual nor the Intellectual hy-producta nf under graduate doings. Therefore they bp cam' members of the college Y". M. C. A. mid .f the "I. union Society." Aei-ord'ng to the clmrti-r which It bad granted Itself, the "l.utneil Soci ety" was an "Orgiinizntlon of male ami female students" so "ad iinced was this university "for the develop ment of the powers of debate and or Htory. Intellectual and soclologiciil progress, mid the discussion of nil mat ters r. -luting to philosophy, metaphys ics, literature, nrt, nnd current event." A statement so formidable was not without u bushing effect upon Messrs. Mllholltind and Mitchell; they went to th.lr first "Lumen" meeting; In a state of fear nnd came away little reassured. "I couldn't get up there," Itamsey declared. "1 couldn't Hand up there before nil that crowd and make a speech, or debate in a tlehlite. to save my soul nnd glzznrd! Why, I'd Just keel right over nml haf to be carried ..tit." "Well, the way I understand It," said Fred, "we can't get out of It. The seniors In the 'frnf siild we had to hilu. nnd they said we couldn't resign. either, after we had Joined. 1 hey said we J list had to go through It, and after a while we'd get used to It and not mind It so much." "I will !" llamsey Insisted. "I couldn't any more stand up there on my feet nnd get to spout in' about sociology am) the radical inctempsy cborua of the iiicttyphyslenl luizoozum than I could flv a fly In' iiiachlne. Why. I " "Oh, thut wasn't anything." Fred Interrupted. "The only one that talked like that, he was that Itllckena; he' a tutor, or something, and really a member of the faculty. Most o' the other Just kind of Mali Mahhed round, and what any of 'em tried 0 get off their chest hardly amount ed to terribly much." "I don't care. I couldn't do It at all!" "Well, the way It lonka to me," Fred observed, "we simply got to! From what they tell me, the freshmen got to do more than anybody. Kvery oth er Friday night, If all freshmen and nothln' else. Y'ou get a povtul rant mi Monday morning In your mull, and it ay 'Assignment' on It and and then It' got written underneath what you haf to do the next Friday night oration or debate, or maybe Juat read from some old Ixsik or s"ni tMug. 1 guess we got to atund up there and try. anyway."

HOPEFUL OUTLOOK F0 SUBSIDY MIDDLE AND FAR WEST, ALWAYS AGAINST IT, NOW SAID TO BE CHANGING ITS MIND. MARKET ARGUMENT IS USED Advocate of Mcatur Alto Urg That Without It th Lakt to-thrSea Deep W.iterway Wouldn't Help the Country Much. By EDWARD B. CkARK Washington. The good or other wise, according to the view 'point, lint id Stales ship subsidy fillnf will go on the r.H ks or manage to make Ihe channel of passage in congress before many tides have ebbed nnd llovvcil. It was eleven years ago last Novem ber tin. I the following paragraph ap peared in a Washington di-pulch : "1'resiilctit Tall s open support of u measure which ils advocates think will build up out merchant murine seem ingly bus given the Mulisidy cause headway enough to curry It Into the channel nf passage. There will be militant opposition from the .Middle West and from the South to aubsidy in whatever form the legislation shall appear." Tlie "militant opposition" from the Middle West, West and South pre vented the passage of il ship subsidy bill In I'resident Taft's time Just as il bad preveiiietl II in the times of other Presidents. This year the sub sidy advocates say they believe thut the West, to some extent, bus been won to the cause of subsidy and that o bill, along the lines recommended by the shipping board and Indorsed by the I'ri'sidetil, Is pretty certain be fore lung to become the law of the land. t'huirlmin Albert I), l.usker of the shipping board has maintained that "in due course national aid to private shipping should result in the govern ment' retirement from operation, so that ultimately no Increased drain on the treasury would be involved, and through protltable private operation, permanency would be Insured in our merchant marine, private Initiative ami enterprise would be Inspired, und the government would find customers for its large Meet of ships." Argument for the Farmer. The subsidy advocates aeem to be cheerful today, but cheerfulness with them is an old story, und It may be that disappointment will meet them lu the future, as It bus met them In the past, but It can be suld thut there are soiiii- Indications that the representa tives in congress of the agricultural dis tricts do not seem tu be ns determined In their opposition to n ship subsidy, as once they were. The plea Is made that increased marketing opportuni ties will come if the government sub kiili.ex shipping companies und thut the Increase in the trude with new markets und the prollts therefrom will lucre than balance the taxation made necessary by the aubsldizing of the murine industry. It Is on this usauuied change of mind of the men of the Middle und Far West thut the administration Is depending for the success of its sub sidy plans. Trior to this time, hew ever, subsidy lias seemed to lie on the eve of aucce s, only to fjud that the morrow brought failure. Years on years New Kugluiul representatives In congress, led by Senator Wllliuni I. Frye of Maine, fought for aubsidy. The arguments tiny used are the argu ment i C today. Once they did not prevail, but now It la possible thut they limy prevail. The United State want to get out of the shipping business. I'resident Harding l.ns let It be known directly lint only that be Ik opposed to further excursions of the government into In dustrial and commercial lields In Ita own behalf, but thut his desire Is to put a stop lo present activities of the government in these Held. Deep-Se Waterway Involved. So It Is that congress is tu lie asked to grunt Mihshlie for .shipping com pilules thut will enable llicui to tuke over such government vessels as are Kcti-coiidlt toned, to pay the acute of wage demanded by Aiuerlciiu marl time liivv and to enter Into new trudlng relations with the porta of the world. Shipping men argue thut the country will not guin much by a deep-sea wa terway from the lake to the Atlantic ocean unless subsidy legislation Is ell- acted. They say thut foreign vessels will get the trude thut should gu to American vessels and that the In ireascd prosperity which would come otherwise will not he lu evidence. Thia luke-to -t he-sea wuterway argu ment Is being used III Washington to day. The 1'nltcd Slate government has hundreds of ships lying Idle. Thl much everybody know. The shipping board vision see nil these vessel plying the aeu, ieulng up new trtidi pubis, stimulating new iniiiiufuclui-iuii nml ngricult uriil industries in the I'nlt ed Slates, and doing other things con genial ti a business-willing country It inn y be that If the subsidy bill b passed I hi" vision never will material l.c. and again it may lie thut then will be no subsidy legislation to give H a chance to take shape, form or sult sluuce. May Adjourn Early in Jun. The inn.loiilv leader of the housi of representative, Frank W. Moo dell of Wyoming, believes thai cou gresa will get through with It work and lie ready for adjournment bj lie lirst week In June. It l""nb ab!y line thut congress can get thrutuh 'lth Its work by the first of lime, but whether it will get through iv lib it or not is another mutter.

Bonus Bill Trouble. A bonus tilll I going through at this session or the next one. Already, lis has been Inade clear prior to till time, certain luxation plans wer agreed upon by the house way nnd tiii'iins romiiiltlee through which and by widen money to pny the ex-service men wns lo be raised. Itecetilly. how ever, there has come opposition to this direct form of taxation, nnd tlie President bus suggested the general sales tux plan, which has utmost been discarded ns Impiesible of passage. 1'nllllclans are Interested somewhat in speculation us to Just what the Re publican nml Democratic campaigner will say in the preliminaries of tlie; coming congressional contest concern ing this bonus miilter. Two grcnt or ganizations of business men of the I'nlted States, the L'nlted State Chamber of Commerce and the Na tional AssiM'latlon of Miinufiictnrer, are ngalnst Hie bonus legislation. The congressmen are being told that a great body of voters. Including aotne ex-service men, are ngalnst the legis lation. The general belief of f",l tlclnns. however, Is that grenter par ty support tun be secured by the pnssuge of the bonus bill than by defeating the measure. Service men are objecting strongly to the constantly mnde statements thut the special tnxes. or a bond Is sue, are to he authorized "In order to sutlsfy the service men." The former soldiers do not like this wuy of put ting It. because they hold that the debt to them Is a Just one and that It is not right constantly to tell the taxpayer that the dally penny or pen nies that he is putting out would be saved to him If It were not for the soldiers' Insistence on a bonus. Mem ber of congress are willing to admit that there Is some Justification for the complaint of the men who served. Cannon Will Retire. Uncle Joe Cunnoii, one time culled by his political opponent "czur of the horse of represent atives," bus miuouuced thut he will uot be a ciindiilute for re-election. Mr. Cannou Is eighty-! yeura old. lie has brokeu ail records for length of service In tlie house of representative. Since tlie year he bus known de- feut only twice lu the cumpulgua of every succeeding two years. It was said lu Washington when Mr. Cannon's unnouuceiucut wus made thut he would not be a cantlidute for re-election, "Cannou will leuve the house eleven yeurs after Cunuoulsia departed." What waa culled "Cunuon Ism," however, merely represented the old order of doing things tu the house. Cunnotilsm In a sense waa simply party "tnajorltylsm." The sieuker of the house of other times, of whutever party, were possessed of power which seemingly guve ample excuse for the use of the word rxnrlstii. Joseph O. Cannon hu been culled, "L'ncle" through tunny yeurs. If be hud not beeii held In affection he never would have been so called. Hi ene miea like hliu. Muuy of them paid tribute to him, even lu the day when they were thinking ou the possibility of ousting hliu from the spenker'a fhiilr. They never succeeded In doing this, hut they did succeed In taking awuv from hliu mid from aubsetiueiit speaker of the house Ihe almost Im perial power which they held. If Joseph (i. Cannon of Illinois were to remain unkuowu becuuse of any of his legislative enilunvurs, he still would, hold place in history ns the central figure lu a struggl" which has u place lu the congressional rcconls for all time. Cannon In u wuy has been u dual personality. Ho tin combined a cer tain rugged, ciiintiion people simplicity of life ami outlook with a aiurkcd ineu tal tendency toward the conservatism of broadi'l'ilh. lie liked to be known aa the chuinpluii nf the ssiple. hut he suw safety in the upholding of certain Institution which progresslviam right ly or wrongly thought Iiml money rather than tiiinilusid for their foundation.
