These two entertainers who star as Moran and Mack in sents the drama of life; the everyday Broadway reviews, have become popular on stage, radio, and phonograph performances and, according to Mr. Lewis, have had a marked influence on the folk-tal- k of the nation. Mr. Lewis argues that these two men, representing themselves as jobless nomads, lazy and contented, are symbols of the unconscious revolt against business, taking place even among business men themselves. Mr. Lewis writes, "The Republic has at last awakened to the fact that Mr. Mack has, in his personality and philosophy, the precise relief it has been subconsciously craving . . relief from the tyranny of business. In the way he looks, in the way he talks, in the very sound as well as the meaning of his words, Mack is a welcome iconoclast freeing America, if but momentarily, from the oppressive religion of business." Mr. Lewis' argument is well supported by choice quotations from the dialogues of these two famous , entertainers.

Pigman Ted Strunk LITERARY SECTION CONNELL, Editor MARTHA A SUGGESTION It is not often that one cares to write in defense of Bernarr MacFadden, Earl Liedermann, Lionel fort or other such doughty, if somewhat muscle-boun- d gentlemen, but a close observer on a stroll across the campus might be led to seriously consider these virile advertisements for the building of "real Certainly, the average university student presents a Other than the members of rather hopeless exterior. the football squad, the basketball, baseball, and track men, one is apt to conclude that the physique of the average male student is in a state of deterioration. But we need not include men alone, there are plenty of girls with muddy complexions, stooped shoulders, and scrawny necks to warrant some criticism on their behalf. Really now, and the question is a vital one, what do you do for exercises? Some of the girls go horseback riding. Some of the men work at filling stations. Military science and gymnasiumdo not offer a practical means to a good physical appearance. We believe, in this respect, that the student himself should "work out this salvation. The tired business man takes up golf. The tired student takes up bridge. Quite a difference. The general excuse for not taking more exercise is that the student has not enough time, or that when ne has the time, he does riot feel like exercising. For his own benefit, The Kernel suggests that he take the time. There are other things to worry about besides lessons, other things to do other than play bridge. We suggest that you exert yourself a little more. ." ABSURD BOY The college intellectual leads, at best, a hard life. There are times one feels like saying to him: "You poor dear boy," and then out of mercy, drop some subtle poison in his favorite beverage that he may pass quietly away to rest, undisturbed by the burning fever that must eventually consume him. The latest case of these misunderstood beings which has come to the attention of The Kernel is that of Mr. Phelan, student editor of the Clark Monthly, the student publication of Clark University. Mr. Phelan had the misfortune to write a playlet entitled "Bull Session," the content of which President Atwood did not appreciate, charging that the whole thing was obscene and that it would endanger the morals of the younger generation. Then the author was suspended from college. Mr. Phelan, writing in defense of his playlet in the New Student, says: " 'Bull Session' is a comedy of the conflict of ideas in the college mind. In it I tried to say that the college man seems to be suffering from a e of. undigested knowledge. 'The opinions of the character's on science, phifosophy, religion, education, women and the like are amusing enough, but they have tragic significance. Professors of science, natural and social, science pure and applied, reveal vistas which confound the average gaze. Since the startled student has barely time to memorize such facts as are essential to pass examinations, he has scant leisure for reflection. The result is philosophical confusion. "It is that confusion of ideas, half formed and malformed, of bewildering impressions, of facts unrelated, which I attempt to imply in 'Bull Session.' And since college men do not talk like President Atwood before women's clubs, but talk like college men in a bull session, I included a few epithets admittedly in poor taste." Mr. Phelan says a great deal more, but we do not need to quote any further. It is not difficult to perceive his point of view. And The Kernel is sorry, and extends to him its sympathy. Moreover we believe that his cause is a rightful one and that his attitude We think as he throughout has been commendable. does, that President Atwood is unjust, and that is but putting it mildly. However, Mr. Phelan should have known beforehand that such a work would have caused trouble and he might have guessed that he would be the under dog. Yes, he must have been far too wise not to realize what would be the outcome. All of which makes us feel that the kindest act we could do would be to put an end to such fellows. For we are certain that Mr. Phelan will not profit by this experience. No, he will write something else and get into more trouble. Absurd boy. No doubt he will come to a bad end. But looking back, we are .inclined to wonder just how much of our present freedom, such as it is, we owe to just these sort of persons. We wonder to what greater freedom we shall win by virtue of their rebelMeanwhile we are content to view their diffilion. For we wonder, too, if the culties in all complacency. light is worth the candle. belly-ach- -- Looking Over The Magazines double-crossin- g MECHANICAL ADVERTISING MGR. Fred Conn ASSISTANT Virgil L.
