Nearly a month ago the troubled League of Nations Assembly meekly suggested that the signatories of the Washington Nine-Power Treaty meet to discuss ways and means of stopping the war (although diplomats refuse to call it that) in China. Finally last Wednesday, the conferees met at Brussels with Belgium's King-Statesman Leopold as host to a conference that may prove very infuriating to Japan. Chinese statesmen, intensely hopeful that President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Chamberlain intend the Brussels Conference to take real action against Japan, scanned bitterly words uttered by Mr. Chamberlain last week to the I louse of Commons in London: "It is a mistake altogether to go into this conference talking about economic sanctions, pressure and force. We are there to make peace. We arc not there to extend this conflict."To Chinese the best war news of late was the absence for several days of Japanese announcements of fresh advances. Japanese were even admitting that in some captured North China territory sizable-forces were being fed by biscuits dropped from airplanes. This meant that the harassing Chinese guerrilla attacks recently launched on a large scale, had evidently cut some Japanese supply lines. Japanese bigwigs were last week visiting the numerous fighting fronts amazed by and confronted with the fact that the Chinese had been holding out for two whole months. Not much later, however, the Japanese advance resumed, alter cx-tremelv heavy fighting, but it was evident that Chinese troops in mountain areas so inaccessible that even their own government has not known exactly how the war was going, have been making brave, effective resistance on a scale Chinese have not before equalled in the North. So important was this subject of war that no less than three col leges in the U. S. offered courses under the dramatic label of WAR. At New York University, The Next War was to be illustrated by maps of the theatres of coming conflicts, and snapshots and movies of European fighting forces. At Mobart College motion pictures of the World War were offered in an course called War ami Peace. In The Problem of War, Weslayan University promised" to prescribe "practical effective steps for preventing war." Academy of A. S. & L.

Every Monday at 3:00 p.m. an educational program is presented. This consists mainly of talks from faculty members concerning vital educational activities and problems. Later on outstanding students may also appear on the program. On Wednesday evening at 8:00 a program of entertainment is given in which talented students appear. Musical numbers, dramatic readings, and short plays are featured. Right now, music is being emphasized to stimulate student and community interest in the opera for this quarter, "The Vagabond King." Professor Thatcher Allred, and Wayne Bundy, chairman, are in charge of these programs. They invite suggestions regarding talent. Persons interested in appearing should see Thatcher Allred or their own department heads. A talent finding enterprise is being organized with the hope of finding students of ability.
