Sunday Activities . . .
Your editorial of March 6 "What
Can You Do Or. Sunday," seems
foolish and childish; something
further should be considered.
The question of whether or not
students at a "progressive Unr
versity" believe in Sunday actiV'
ities which you mentioned is a
loaded question. It infers that
those who do not believe in such
diversions are not progressive
When you mention that restric
tions seem "a little 19th-century"
you must realize that people of
the 20th-century might benefit
by following some of the morals
of the 19th Century.
We personally believe that most
of the activities which you men
tioned are not appropriate for the
Lord's Day, but we suggest that
when there are questions of the
propriety or desirability of an ac
tivity on Sunday, that the inter
ested parties honestly ask them
selves, as Christians, if the Lord
would approve of or enter into
such an activity. This is not a
matter of progress, but of ethics
least one more year, Secretary of
Agriculture Benson decided under
pressure of whimpering dairy interests.
Whether he wanted to continue
being for butter buyer, he almost
had to if he is to be consistent.
It is important to be consistent
in economics as in any other
branch of sociology. Dairymen
are paying support prices for feed
and it goes on down the line in
the farming business.
The U. S. economy is based on
agriculture. If the bottom drops
out of the farming business, it
soon tails out of every other in
dustry. Apparently it is a very
good thing, then, to see that the
farmers realize a large figure in
their bank books every year.
But, while the farmer makes
big money, the rest of the coun

are few. You only have a day left
in which to see 'this stormy ad

of the movie involves Ryan and

This movie is infested w?th vil
