SPEAKING OF POLITICS
Tho colored nonulation mav not know it. but the recent poll conducted
in behalf of the world court in various leading colleges and universities over
the country is highly significant and presages some queer revolutions witnin

passage is a direct prediction that the student body of the United States

OPINIONS ON "RED" GRANGE
Scarcely had Red Grange of Illinois been canonized and his name written
into the calendar of college sainthood when disconcerting news comes of
his fall into the pit of professionalism, into a contact with the Chicago
of amjroximately S20.000 for each game played.
Varing speculations on Grange's move engaging the college press. The
Iowa State student (Iowa State College) approves. It see no reason why
