The University's Problem President Suonllo. at his meeting with I'niversity of Washington alumni nnd friends of the institution in la coma, pave notice of a future possibility which calls 10 grave consideration of the state. _ Dr. Suzzallo told the alumni of the extraordinary n nancial condition the institution is facing. Its ni " tion, duo to the return of service men. has leaped Irom a normal expectation of 3,300 to an actual attendance of 6,300. This in itself strained the budget to the breaking point. Then the service men. properly enough, have been exempted from the *lO-a-quartor tuition fee for the bent fit of the building fund. Salaries of faculty of course, have increased, as have all other costs. "I of all this trouble, the diversity is finding itself with a sharp and increasing building shortage. As many citizens suspected at the time the Ala. ka- Yakon-Pacific exposition's "gift" of its buildings to university in return for the use of the campus has tunied out to lie a curse instead of a blessing. 1 hese shacks, after requiring years of expensive upkeep, must be torn down, one by one. and the state, lulled by the thought of the magnificence inherited from the exposition ha*. failed in the meantime to provide money for replacing the structures. At best. Dr. Suzzallo points out. the university mil have to call on the next legislature for a staggering total in order to maintain itself even on its present basis. He is broad-minded enough to see also that many other state institutions face similar difficulties. There do not appear to be many solutions of the problem. A bond issue does not seem feasible. Dr. Suzzallo s belief is that the best way out of the emergency is to limit at tendance at the university to those students who are tjest Qualified to make efficient use of the privilege—in other words, to raise the scholarship requirements so high that the insufficiently-prepared and butterfly-minded boy and girl will not get in. . This is a revolutionary proposal for Washington, a statt that has always prided itself op the abundance and freedom and excellence of its public school facilities. The situation is indeed, grave. Stems like Frank Hall, one of the operator* of the Serviee elub. elaims he (jot the pun found in hi* posses sion from U. S.

Ask Bill Bryan Chicago harbors an optimistic speculator who parted n fortune the other day for the purchase of half a dozen breweries. He believes America will tire of total ab stinence and revert to light wines and beer. Seattle was the first great seaport city to fall before the siege of prohibition. Isolated in our aridity, we de cided that alcoholic blues were not entirely fatal to busi ness and pleasure. In fact, we went to the polls and away our righto to aa occasional permit for a legal the politicians, who for years cried ont against pro hibition, became converted and clamored for the honor of introducing the resolution that ratified the dry amend ment to the federal constitution. In face of all this enthusiasm for thirstlessness, there are those who contend that the appetite for kickful bev erages is growing. Home brewing, they contend, has be come the sport of housewives, maidens, callow youths and pious elders. Young women, who as co-eds frowned on the thirsty college youth of pre-prohibition days, now •sk him to call and promise to supply the ginger ale. Whether the wish is father to the thoughts of these diagnosticians, we do not assume to know. But it is psychologically sound for folks to long for that which is oat of reach. Will this longing, we ask, torment the parched nation and terminate in a throw-back to light wines and beer? Ask dad. He thinks he knows. Seattle EUt* contemplate a million-dollar temple. And we'll wager Aileen Claire't ouija board against Poindexter't chance* for the presidency that the Hill* will have ten million dollars' fun in executing their plan. Congressman Britten, of the house naval affairs com mittee. after much investigation and aided by navy de partment experts, is able to announce that by 1923 the United States navy will be supreme on the seas. In weight of broadside projectfles, Uncle Sam will have 688,633 pounds, as against Great Britain's 484,080. In total of main battery guns Uncle will have 340, as against Great Britain's 314. And so forth. Supremacy on the seas! For what? _To kill? The smoke still clings over the battlefields, the dead are scarcely laid in their graves, the crippled have hardly been provided with crutches, millions of the helpless are still homeless and hungry, and America rises to proudly boast that she's about to acquire the supreme power to kill! It is the same America which, three years ago, offered ten millions of her young men and all her resources to the cause of putting down war, preventing any nation from dominating the world by force of arms. America engaged in the world war to secure and per petuate world peace. Her sole spoils were to be abolish ment of militarism and all that that means. Neglecting her positive power as a victor and devoting herself to the study of and quarreling over dreams, she has permitted herself to be defrauded of her spoils. The result is that the cause for which she fought and suffered has been lost in the fog, there's no real peace anywhere, and America feels the necessity of becoming the supreme one in the business of making other wars. But let us not boast too early over our high-standing as killers. Great Britain will not surrender her naval su premacy until she has sweated the last shilling of tax money out of her masses. Also, Japan is no mean candi date for the supremacy. The world thought it was going to shake off its war parasites and turn to unprecedented production of wheat, fuel, wool and cotton.

Bank- BANK / SEATTLE jßranc2, JBccllard, Hi, COM DC, The Discouraged Burglar When a gentleman of the burgling per suasion named K. I'. Coffey attempted the other day to steal from the home of Citizen A. Anderson, in Glendale, Cal., he was caught in the act by Mrs. Anderson, who handed him over to the police. Being haled into court, Burglar Coffey (and let us not be too hnrsh with him; other coffees I have met were worse than burglars) seemed downcast. "I've !>een caught before," he told the judge. "Both times it was in the act. I guess I'll give up." We have all felt the same way at times. The High School student gets discouraged, and the settlement worker, nnd the re former, and the mother, the banker, the scientist, the wash-woman, and the mayor. Discouragement is not new, and failure is quite common. But the new note in this item is that burglars also fail. What! Have the purple paths of dalliance also their pitfalls? When we rebel and give up trying to be decent and take to crime, can we fail and make a mess of things even there also? Bless my soul and well, well!
