Second Hand
Rnnk Racket
CURRENT number of the Cornhusker Country
man, just out, reports successful operation for
two years now of a cooperative book exchange by
an honorary society on the College of Agriculture
campus. This exchange, according to the farm
magazine, has provided the agency through which
second-hand books have been bought and sold by
students at considerable savings and rroflt in the
respective transactions. Ten percent of the exchange
price is deducted to defray operating expenses of
the exchange on each sale, the seller and buyer re
civing and paying the actual price, minus this ser
vice charge. .
On the "city" campus no agency t .-.rnlsh this
direct book exchange exists and studer.; . remain
victims of a second-hand book purchase BysUm that
is litle short of a racket. Book stores handling sec
ond hand books pay so ridiculously little and chat;.c
so outrageously much that students, unless forced
to sell or buy second-hand books by financial ne
cessity, would rather buy new books and keep them
even after the use for them has passed.
Students at Nebraska are getting disgusted
with a system under which they pay two dollars
for a second-band book, use it a semester and sell
it back for fifty cents, when this same book is re
sold to another student for a dollar seventy-five.
If the Ag college book exchange can operate
successfully on a ten percent margin, why must
the book stores with their much greater volume
of business, exact several hundred percent for the
same service?
The evil will not be eliminated by appealing to
the book stores on their sense of justice. They
have the students in a position to dictate book
prices to them and will keep them there unil a
competitive agency which would force them place
the practice on an equitable business basis is pro
vided. There Is but one establishment now providing
this competition: the Regents book store. And this
handles only new books. There new books may be
bought at a saving, but the profit arm reaches out
to grab the student when he sells this' new book;
for some books have absolutely no value to the
student after he has finished the course in which
they are used as texts, as in the case of foreign
language readers.
But one thing will put an end to the second
hand book racket at Nebraska, That is establish
ment of a student-operated cooperative second-hand
book exchange. Such exchanges are jow in exist
ence at many schools, large and small, ail over the
country. Whether In competition to the regular
book stores or not, they give the penny-pinched stu
dent a gentleman's break on purchase and sale of
second-hand books, usually operating as the one at
the college of agriculture on a percentage basis,
letting the buyer and seller fix the exchange price.
Such a project for Nebraska has often been
discussed. The time for action is now, when every
penny looks like fifty cents to the struggling stu
dent. In a few months the change of semesters
will turn another harvest of student money to the
counters of the book dealers. The Nebraskan urges
the Student council to Investigate at once the plans
of operation used for cooperative book exchanges at
other schools, looking towards establishment of a
similar exchange for Nebraska.

Ag ('annum
FRIDAY was overall and apron day on the col
lege of agriculture campus. This custom, fol
lowed annually as a publicity measure for the
Farmer's Formal, may have some deeper signifi
cance. Is it possible that this tradition is an in
evitable outgrowth of that democratic spirit which
prevails among the rural element?
"Civilization begins and ends with the plow."
Thus spoke the fiery Daniel Webster those many
years ago, himself certainly no farmer. In that
statement may there not be some key to the pres
ent troubles of the world? And likewise might not
Webster's statement also be paraphrased to read,
"Democracy begins and ends with the plow'.'?
If one will take the time, most any day now,
to pick up some small town paper the chances are
very likely that he will see a news item of this
"Friends of Art Johnson, who is ill with pneu
monia, pent Thursday husking his corn crop for
him. The whole job was accomplished in about
eight hours and afterwards he was presented with
a round robin letter wishing him a speedy recovery."
It should take no great stretch of the imagi
nation to deduce that there may be some connec
tion between this spirit of the rural regions and
that ag campus action of wearing overalls and
aprons as a sort of symbolism.
Democracy is a sacred thing which is not being
cherished nearly so dearly as might be. Only such
things, as exemplified on the college of agriculture,
can preserve it. The whole Nebraska campus
should have, more
A LONG time ago old John Adams, historic dis-
truster of the capability of the whole people to
rule themselves, defined an aristocrat as anyone who
could control another vote besides his own.

Such challenging articles as

Stuart Chase in an article in
The Nation propounding the theme
"If I Were Dictator" makes little
bones of the situation, suggeatlng
his remedy for national ailment
should he be called upon to guide
the destinies of a nation despairing
of present Institutions. A certain
vein of good natured jolity per

doubtedly sincere in his expression
of the seriousness of the situation
and the necessary remedies equally
adaptable to the present situation
or one that might occur should the
nation find itself in the throes of
civil conflict.
Jay Franklin tells us in "Are
We Ripe for a Revolution?" (Lib
erty, Oct. 8.) that "There never
was a reel revolution that started
out to be one." And further "if
there is any lesson in history it is
that we should go to the operating

Cobs Say:
We're O. K.
Why is the editor of the Daily
Nebraskan so opposed to the Corn
Cobs? The purpose of the organi
zation is to promote pep on the
Nebraska campus. The place where
organization is really needed is al
the rallies before games. This year
the rallies have been considered
good by the Innocents in charge.
At least that is what they have
told us and they do not ordinarily
give out unmerited compliments.
Even the editor of the Nebras
kan granted that the last home
game was very dull to walch and
that the action on the field stimu
lated no pep in the crowd. We con
tend, and truthfully we think, that
much of the yelling that was done
was done by the Cobs.
The constitution of the Corn
Cobs has never hinted that the or
ganization should enforce the
freshman cap tradition, inai tra
dition has always been handled by
the Innocents and they have never
in any manner given any power of
inforcement of it to the Cobs. If
they should ever decide for our
helping enforcing it or assuming
responsibility for its enforcement,
we would not hesitate to do every
thing in our power to maite it a
lasting tradition.
The Corn Cobs are self support

source for power on which to exist

Chaperons Are Unman.
A couple who chaperoned a re
cent university party was heard to
say, "In all the time we have acted
as chaperons for parties, we never
before have been treated so court
eously." At the same time aome students
were heard to express the opinion
that the chaperons had not re
ceived the attention to which they
vtti eiililled. If this were true,
how much more regrettable la the
lack of respect shown them at
many functions.
It so happens that the party at
which these remarks were made
was a barb party. This might be
construed to mean that fraternities
are the guilty ones in regard to
chaperon treatment. And undoubt
edly many of them are. But the
barbs, too, have been guilty of the
same thing time and time again.
So it is a general condition to be

bers, who are responsible for the

fact that a "university rule" re
quires their presence may account
for the treatment they receive.
he asserted that the greatest scien
tific men, like Maxwell, Faraday,
Calileo and Newton of the past,
and Jeaus, Eddlngton and Einstein
of the present, have possessed an
abiding faith that a divine power
under whatever name, had a defin
ite place in the cosmic economy.
That rellfiion and science are
thus reconciled may come as a sur
prise to manv, for tno belief has
gained ground that when physical
science with its theory of evolution
comes In religion goes out. But
the advanced thinkers of today
fully realize that this evolutionary
process did not result from any
force inherent in matter, but rather
from a universal power which has
manifested itself thruout creation.
Bergson called this power elan
vital or vital impulse. By what
ever name it is designated it is the
infinite Principle, the great First
Cause, which created the universe
and will rule it throughout etern
ity. '
Too often, it seems in spite of
the vision of the most eminent
scientists, students accepting the
theory of evolution as explaining
the development of life on the
earth in its countless forms and
finally producing mankind, have
thrown away the scriptural story
of creation, relegating it to the
realm of tradition, or even of
mythology. The higher version of
the leaders is correcting this mis
apprehension, and thus saving man
from atheism and agnosticism.
Professor Eddlngton in an address
in London, as reported in the press,
in answer to the query as to the
most momentous step recently
taken in physical science, declared
boldly that 'it was the realization
that physical science at the most
is dealing only with shadows.
Reality, the utlimate and absolute
of existence, is something back of,
although in substance quite apart
from, the physical universe.
Mr. Milikan gave figures to
prove that there is in the United
States an increasing interest in re
ligion among all classes, and that
the physical scientists are no ex
ception. He stated that where for
merly but 12 percent of the scien
tific men were listed in Who's
Who as churchmen, 44 percent of
the younger group are listed as
such. Thus the conclusion is drawn
that physical science is not under
mining religion.
There is no legitimate reason
why the two should not go hand
in hand when it is realized that
where religion deals definitely with
things of the spirit, physical sci
ence deals only with the realm of
matter, with the things that are
temporal; and that reality, the ul
timate and absolute, pertains only
to the things that are not seen,
the things which are eternal. In
the light of this understanding
there is no conflict religion and
the sciences are. indeed, recon
ciled. The Christian Science Mon

adults would not understand nor
enjoy the actions of the younger
generation. At any rate, in a ma
jority of cases chaperons are
looked upon as a "necessary evil."
Get acquainted with your chap
erons! This injunction is intended
not only for those in charge of
the function but also for all in at
tendance. Chaperons are human

and in nine cases out of ten will

Put yourself in their place.
Would you feel that you wanted
ever to act as chaperon again
after some of tli? treatment you
would receive No, and neither
do they. But if they are treated
balf-way decently, they will be
only too glad to accept another in
vitation. And when you have
made a friend of a chaperon, you
have a real friend.
Think about these things, frater

you to make chaperoning a plea
