COLDS, A SIGN OF SPRING The signs of the coming of sprin which are seen out of doors, are not the only ones there are. For is it not a sign of spring when nearly every- one about you is coughing or sneez- ing, and the attendance shrinks to a little over half Why is it that colds are so com- ,.'non in the springtime? It is just then, everyone is happy that winter is over and it is the one desire to get out into the fresh air. One no long- er dresses for cold weather, because they say spring is ,here. Perhaps the sun has disappeared behind the hill before one returns, and by the time he reaches home, he is chilled to the bone. The next day he is very tired and has a little fever. Then he be- gins "coughing and sneezing, the)) spreading the cold to others. W. S. C. STUDENTS ASK LOWER THEATRE PRICE WASHINGTON STA'I'' COL- LEGE, PULLMAN, March 21Stu- dents were called upon to show the spirit of their forefathers in battling the "50-cent show racketeers" in poster proclamations which .adoxncl the campus today. A boycott of the two downtown theaters, the Cordova and the Audian, was urged until prices 'Ire lowered. "We've waited 14 ye'rs for the ahowhousez to find out the war is o- ver, but udgng :h'o:n their prices they think onr fathers are still get- ting $1.50 for their wheat," the post- ers said. The proclamation was sign- ed by F. Fleming. ACCOUNT OVERDRAWN DocThis is a very sad case, very sad indeed. I much regret to tell );0u that your wi.fe's mind is gonecom- pletely gone.

LITSCHERT e m J i m i It has been the opinion of a great many students of international af- fairs, from the time of Geowe Wash- ington down to the present, that the activities of the pacifists, who claim, and doubtless in most cases truth- t'ully, that, they detest war, are in many ways calculated to promote,. rather than discourage conflict. Man:,' pacifists seem to think that by di- arming America we might furnish a: example to the rest of the world, thereby urging other nations to di- arm. But practical men are of the o- pinion that this would only invite disaster to the United States and that disarmament can'only come by in- ternational agreement, with Uncle Sam in the meantime in duty bound to look carefully to his defensive ar- mament. But the latest activity of the paci- fists seems along the line of a na- tional boycott, a weapon which is dangerous to use on the most pro- pitious occasion. At first many of our leading pacifists were urging that Uncle Sam engage in a boycott a- gainst Japan, in an effort to stop the present Sine-Japanese trouble. Our government will, of com"se, do i nothtng of th kind, because the re- sponsible heads of our affairs realize :that this would only involve us in serious trouble with Japan, since an i official boycott is little less than an act of war. If the United States were to institute an official boycott 'a- gainst Japan, even with the cooper- ation of other powerful nations, which by the way it would be almost impossible to get, Japan would be placed between two horns of a dil- emma. The government could not yield without facing an overthrow at home. Either it would have to de, clare war on the United States or face slow death by strangulatiom: In such event, there is little question as to what course Japan would pur- sue. The obvious plan would be to strike quickly at America before the strangulation process started to be- come effective. Thus in attempting to! end the trouble in China we would: only succed in involving our own l country. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR , , ,, . =, rick, Mary Smethurst, George Grant, John Branton, Vivian and Verno Or- ton and Verys Weaver. Tlie prize for the best chssed char- acter at the 'Kuntry Skule' was won by Verys Weaver. Teeter-totter, rope jumping, marble games, catch-ball and 'Skul' were the games of the ev- ening. Diplomas were awarded to 'all present. Lunches were brought in ['Skle' style and enjoyed by all. An announcement of last week was corrected as follows: The delegates were chosen to be recommended to the nominating committee for possi- ble officers of the Wenatchee Dist- rict Union at Cashraere, April 1, 2, and 3. There have been no delegates chosen to attend the convention as it is hoped there will be a large dele- gation ad every one is invited to go.

It is announced that the American Boycott Association is preparing a nation-wide consumers' boycott against Japan and it is stated that this will have the backing of i church, pacifist and international groups. Thus again do the pacifists: and internationalists, seeking' peace, point the way to war. These would- be boycotters do not realize that the reason Japan is making'war on China '! today lies in just such an unofficiaF: consumers boycott which the Chinese" people have been waging against Japan, and the failure of the nese government to do anything a- bout it. Were American consumers to attempt the same thing it would not be long until the Japanese govern-i ment might be calling on Uncle Sam to stop this unofficial boycott. And failure to do so would undubtedly lead to serious difficulties, because! the Japanese government would, as stated above, prefer to risk the results of a sudden swift attack rather titan I perish tlu'ough revolution or finan- cial bankruptcy. 0 com,'se there are other which the pacifists have failed to take l Into consideration. These include our silk industry which employs 300;000 men and women and which would be paralyzed by such action and our tr, tde with Japan which amounts to a third of a billion dollars a year. BUt after all the important point is that THE MODERN SCHOOL As Interpreted by Washington School Leaders , ,H| , i ,  HOME STUDY VANISHING? By D. E. Wiedman, Supt. of Schools, Bellingham "The following home assi.gnment must be completed!" Or, "There should be at least one hour spent up- on this subject iu study at home." The joy that the average American student received at such anounce- ment is rapidly passing. Supervised study, directed study, teacher-guidance work, and other in- novations of the past quarter cen- tury are gradually lessening the a- mount of home work necessary, and furthermore the attitude of school authorities toward the efficacy of home work is diminishing the desira- bility of it. Scientific investigation and meas- urements have proven without much question that a greater amount of ef- ficiency is gained and a greater a- mount of work is accomplished in a far shorter time if the ener'y put forth in study is directed by those trained for such direction. Home study conditions and home study facilities, other than the texts of the school are meager indeed aml curtail the possibilities of home preparation. These facilities are sup- plied in the reference materials and library equipment of the average modern school. Home study is too often "home, assistance" from older brothers, sis- ters or parents and oftimes involve. differentiated methods, or incorrect methods, and in no wise increases the ability of the pupil to "solve prob- lems for himself." Little home work is now assigned, especially below the junior-h!gh classification. Much continuation work upon projects involving outside exploration and inquiry is carried on work initiated within the school and carried through to the hours af- ter closing, but little indefinite as- sign,nents, as we older ones knew them, are now required.
