Assembly at Cnfral
"Subsc'be to Argus"
Assembly wa held this morning
*t Central. urged that
all students ce lserv o paper and sup
plies, and sugicsted that paper bags
nd bill postrs be used to do figur
ing on tin nvthrmatics.
Since the last assembly the office
records slow that tarcMness has
slightly dicreased. This change was
do to the drastic measures that Mr.
•Severance threatened to carry out
unless this carelessness was stopped.
The primary reason for assembly
• this morning was to urged a 100
per cent, subscription to the Argus.
I Prof. Karl E. Richards explained the
( subscription cards and offered to al-
subscriptions to be taken on
the instalment plan. The editor-in
chief, Carl B. Stoner.' again urged
the session to subscribe heavily, and
asked for junior candidates for the
exchange, observation and business
<columns of the paper. Louis Riner,
the business manager, was next pre
sented by Mr. Severance, who re
ferred to him as the "High Mogul."
Mr. Severance explained that his
nickname for Rimer was due to the
fact that he was a "six-footer" and
that he was the "big man" on the
staff. Rimer urged each individual
to urge each other individual to sub
scribe immediately. He also stated
that a cheap Argus would not be
published, and that either a large
number of subscriptions must be
taken or the paper would be discon
tinued. The percentage of subscrip
tions by rooms was reported, and
the six highest are as. follows: Miss
McNeff. 31 per cent.: Miss Irwin,
24 per cent.: Miss Stewart, 21 per
cent.: Miss Bowers, 20 per cent.:
Miss Smith, 15 per cent.; Miss Ather
ton, 15 per cent.

Government Puts Shoe
Prices at $3 to $l2
Washington, Oct. 3.—The Ameri
can people soon 'will be able to pur
chase shoes at fixed maximum and
minimum retail prices, lower than
those now prevailing, and obtain at
the same time shoes of better qual
ity. This announcement was made
yesterday by the War Industries
Board on an agreement it has enter
ed into with the shoe industry.
Under the agreement shoes will be
standardized as to quality and style,
at prices ranging from 33 to $l2 for
men and women, grouped as fol
lows: Class A. from $9 to $l2; class
B, $6 to $8.50; class C, $3 to $5.50.
I Proportionate prices for youths' and
[children's shoes have been fixed in
! each of the three classes.
, The War Industries Board will
; check up on the quality of the shoe
sold at each price by means of a
class number stamped In each shoe.
Policing, officials explained, will be
done by the various State Councils
of Defense, and where the public Is.
in doubt as to what quality it get
ting according to the price schedule,
complaint may be made and the cost
of manufacture traced.
While It is possible to purchase a
shoe for $3 now, under the new
schedule the shoe at that pirce will
; be of higher grade. Officials also said
I that it will be possible to buy better
[quality shcys throughout the three
' classes at less money than at pres
ent. Shoes now retailing for as high
as $2O, they said will retail for the
maximum price of $l2 and be of at
least equal quality.

It Is Like the Principle Under
lying the Continual Death and
Birth of Cells in a Living Body
—Thoughts Suggested by the
Coming Fnto of High Bridge
High Bridge, whose demolition is !
drawing near, was one of the boasted (
architectural and engineering glories i
of New York in tlie middle of the last !
century and. like the now almost for- I
gotton "distributing reservoir" that !
stood well within the time-range of j
the present generation on the ground j
now occupied by the Public Library !
and Bryant Park, it served as a 1
choice scene for real as well as im- I
aginary romance (see Hoffman's fine
tale of "The Man in the Reservoir").
Its approaching fate draws attention
to the great law of death in life, or of
life in death, which governs cities as
it governs all other organisms. The
buildings of a city are like the cells j
of an animated body—they are con- j
tinually decaying and being replaced !
as long as the organisms of which ;
they are eonstitutent parts grows and :
nourishes, and when it ceases to grow,
and loses its vitality, both decay and !
perish together, the whole dissolving I
because the parts are no longer re
We are apt to take a too senti
mental view of the destruction of an
cient landmarks, blaming the resent
lessness of modern progress, but for
getting that "modern" means simply
actual, and that to allow the relics '
of the past to obstruct the needs of !
the present is as fatal as to have the j
life-blood clogged with dead cells.
We are wronig in also Imagining ,
that the spirit of progress is more j
destructive te-day than it ever was I
in the past. Cities have always grown I
upon the ruins of older cities, as for- I
est grow upon the mold of former |
forests. There/are many Romes un
derneath the Rome of to-day, just as |
there were many Troys under the I
walls and pavements of the Troy of j
the Iliad. Both London and Paris ,
have trampled their dead selves deep [
underfoot. Ordinary motives of sen- |
tinjental interest will not save any
structure from demolition when it !
gets in the way of the requirements j
and conveniences of later generations. ,
Only the strongest and most endur- I
ing historical associations, or artistic I
excellence and beauty' of the rarest
kind, can ward off destruction and in
duce voluntary preservation. It is easy |
to see why the Parthenon and certain i
other Greek temples have been guard- !
od. especially in modern centuries. It |
is because they are exemplers and j
tvpes of an architectural art that the j
world has been admiring, studying and
imitating for many generations. It is
their originality that has saved them, i
If they had been simple imitations of i
the products of an earlier art no such .
protecting charm would have hovered :
over them.
The colossal architectural piles of .
Egypt have remained, partly because
some of them were too massive to be
readily torn down, partly because a j
kind of awe hovered over them in the
presence of the strange and giant
sculptured forms that seemed to
guard them, and partly because the
current of progress turned away from
Egypt and left them, like the water
marked walls cf an nmbandoned can
! yon. whose river lias found a new
| course, to the slow, smoothing hand
I of time.
But the recent fate of the exquisite
temples of Philae. mercilessly drown
! Ed by the dammed waters which mod
ern agriculture exacts from the Nile,
shows how fragile is the mantle of
respect and admiration covering the
art treasures of the Pharaohs.
If an Arabian magician chuld trana-
Rort New York to the banks of the
ile and let It settle down, a vast
human cloud over the site of ancient
Memphis, it would eat up the mighty
pyramids, as once it began to eat the
towering basalt pillars of the Pali
sades. Or if Cheops' stupendous
tomb was saved from the hungry
maw. it could only he through almost
superhuman ability on the part of
some Egyptian preservation society.
The ruins of Tadnoir in the desert
are a long-enduring prey for the slow
devouring winds; but drop Tadmor
down in the midst of 6.000,000 human
ants, and it would quickly go the way
of poor, romantic old High pridge. and
no memory of the heroic Queen Zeno
bia. now defending the wails of her
j wonderful city side by side with her
soldiers and now led a bejewelled cap
tive in the pageant of a Roman tri
umph. could save it for a day.
The glorious Gothic cathedrals are
/safe (except from Huns), both because
they are protected, like the Parthenon,
by the originality of their art and be
cause they are still, after so many
hundred years, more beautiful than
anything that modern builders can
conceive or construct, as well as bet
ter suited to their purpose.
; But now let us ask ourselves, and
answer frankly, the question: "How
many architectural structures have
we that would be protected because of
their intrinsic interest and beauty by
a civilized people of a few thousand
years hence?" Y'ou, reader, may have
a different notion; but for my part I
cannot think of one.
The best would fall in its claim, be
cause thev are all imitations and
adaptations, as far as they are beau
tiful. and where they are original they
are not beautiful. Nevertheless, hur
rah for modern progress! A garden
cannot always bloom, but in the in
tervals of flowering it can always be
made richer in preparation for the
next coming of thg roses.
I make all eye examinations
personally and guarantee
every pair of glasses.
