The man who combined theee two visions, 6at of the put and the future, is Mr. John a.. Wuner, instructor in chemistry, who teunded Chemistry Day several years ago aad who has been instrumental in making a an event of atate-wide importance.-Aibert Woofter.

He Would Learn How To Manage Family Budget

W the aim of education ia to teach youth to lclo better the more desirable things they are aobtg to do anyrway, then it ia reasonable to .. ume that colleges should offer some new tppea of courses. The greater number of col-liCe students will be driving automobiles af-tertheybave been graduated.T'!teir Jncrea.a.ed Mftling power will enable a greater per-cen-tace of them to own and operate can. One ..t of every five persons today owns and ,eperatea a car. ln fact, the entire American JtOPulation, if they desired, could be com-fortably gliding along the roads at one time .,..._could be a nation on wheels. Probably tlaree out of five college students will drive, &lid will be forced upon the road with little or no training as to how to operate the ve ... I e.

Many of them will, as an almost neces--.ry life function, establish homes. They will oo and win maidens, but wbat then 7 Look-ilq' backward to their college careers, they will search in vain for some plan whereby dtey can make tbo~ ends meet. Nothing pre-Milt& itself. The wives try their hands at eooking iheir first meals with the result that after a week or two the husbands are so arty starVed that they tell their wives .rather impolitely that they can't cook "half well as Mother .. " The wives cry and home ~.. mothers they go. Another match has lteen struck on the rock of unpreparednese jaat because they were not warned to watch BOr prepared to face the job.

The family budget they have to face could have been gotten in college. Many oth-er practical aubjecta should be taught. These ..Wde.nts may not be in the proper place in a Machen co1lege, .but the fact remains they wtll need some things they didn't get.--Cleo

YMCA Forums to Offer Study of Democracy

BECAUSE a crat deal of emphasis is being placed on democracy, 'ibut more on the me than on the nature of the way of life wtaich the name denotes. perhaps, the YMCA will aponosr a aeries of open diecu8Sions to e beneath t.he surfa.ce of thia subject.

Discussions stimulate thinking. When as reeult of thinking, facts and opinioru are c.entributed by several people in a discussion, Q,e trut h bu an excellent chance to come "t on top. Through consideration of the fundamental reasons that lie deep in the na-twe of man why dmocracy is the most whole--HIDe form of government, and through a careful scrutiny of U.e alleged advantages et dktatonhip, the di&cussiona should give te those who attend a better lmcnvledge and preciation of democracy. Such knowledge .. especially needed by thoee who are g~> ... out to teach others.

Consideration in the d.iacu.asions of in-. temal wealmesaes and outaide forces that

tlaftaten demoerae1 in America will reveal ~ta on which we ahould ponder.

The diaeuaaions will be worthwhile aDd an not Ulr.el1 to fall , but the extent of sue-e.- will be detennined by tne interest mani-,.,. by atudenta aDd faeul\7.
