Defense Necessities Foreshadow
New Job For Colleges
No matter what happens in the present war, and.
--- 11P 0 matter how it turns out: the United. States is, in

Already Congress has authorized a two,-ocean
--ipavy. The army has organized separate tank units
on the order of the German panzer divisions. De
centralization of industry and. armed strength has
' Even after peace has returned, military experts
agree, the, United States will want to keep its
f,tanding army at about 500,000 . and its two-Ocean
navy will demand about 450,090, regulars. In other
words almost 1,000,000 men will be under arms,
three times the number on active duty before the

See How the Mighty Are Fallen From. Their Seats
It would be rather interesting to learn just what
emotions crowd the breasts. of the-•lndependent
freshman politicians. As late as a week before
the elections the Independents were flushed with
confidence; , the Campus. men were. wearing sack
cloth and ashes. There is a bitter irony about it
all. Incidentally, we wonder how Mr. MacFadden,
that clever chap who is now sojourning in tropic
clime, feels about the situation. His brain-child
metamorphosed into something of a headache.
. Two. changes in -the personnel of the war world
last week will undergo long scrutiny for their
effect on the course of events. The death of the
Marquess of Lothian may—or may. not—bring im
portant changes in Anglo-American relations. The
deposal of Pierre Laval by France may be an im
portant sign of the times or may mean very little.
The question is whether these leaders were men
v;ho drove the tides or men who rode them.
