UP BY INTERNATIONAL
On Wcdiicsdny, JJ’ovcmbcr 9, the Intcr-
iiatioiuil Kelations Club began the study of.
the Disaniiameiit QxTCStiou by taking it uyi
from tlic viewpoint of France and Japan.
Fannie Paul prepared the way for this
study by giving a discussion on The !N^eecs-
sity for Disarmament. The two main points
discussed under this subject were: Will Dis
armament Prevent Future Wars? and, The
Betterment of the Economic Conditions
which would be the Result of Disarmament.
The development of tlie first point was neces
sarily based on snp]}Osition and feeling be
tween nations rather than material facts.
I'lowcvei', astounding facts were given con
cerning the enormous expenditure for arms
which is now being made. With these expen
ses lessened the world \\'onld be saved from
bankruptcy which now threatens.
The racial feelings of the Japanese and
Americans was discussed by Ruth Livermon,
who showed very plainly that neither of the
countries is alone in thinking of the other as a
cDUceited overbearing people. The rnistiiir't
and doubt of France concerning disarmameJit
was then given by Beth Carrol!—tlie French
being partially excused for their viewjioint

discussion then followed, different girls and

DR. SYKES OF COKER COLLEGE
IS WELCOMED AT MEREDITH
We were delighted to have Dr. E. W. Sykes
with us at chai)o! exercises on Saturday morn
ing. Those who attended the exorcises at the
Auditorinm on .Vrmistioe Day realized what
a treat wo had and were eager to hear him
again. After telling, in his amusing nninner,
of his i>ast assocication with our beloved ijres-
ident as well as with ^loredith. he .«poke to \is
on the “Golden Rule”-“ Do unto others as you
would have them do to you.” He showed how
this princi])lo should be practiced in business,
how everyone should a]Dply it to everything he
does or says and how fittingly it could be
made ap])licablc to College life. How much
better this world would be and how much
sweeter life would seem if the spirit of the
Golden R\ile reigned in the hearts and lives
of the people.
“Try greeting everyone yon meet with a
smile,” I)i’. S.ykes said, “and you will get a
smile in retnri^”. He closed with this:
“Then give to the world the best you have and
the best will come back to you.”
Lottie Hylton: “Is a goose a bii*d? I al-
Avays thought it was a fowl.”
AMERICA HOLDS THIRD
OF ARMISTICE DAY
Throughout America, Armistice Day was
celebriited with due ceremony. The whole
nation joined in paying honor to the unkiiown
soldier, who was laid to rest in Arlingtoii
Cemetery. The procession which passed
down Pennsylvania Avenue was made up of
people from all walks of life. Ex-President
Wilson put aside hia dread of public appear
ance, President Harding was present, men
who had been decorated were there, and many
of the high dignitaries of America, and the
re])rescntatives of other countries, who have
gathered in AVashington for the Conference.
President Harding made the speech which
|jaid great tribute to the unknown dead of the
war. He said that the Americans fought not
from fear but because they hated war. He
very impressively clnsed with the Lord’s
Prayer. The Congressional Medal of Honor
and the Distinguished Service Cross were laid
side by side on the tomb; the Victoria Cross,
which had never before been given to any one
except those who had served lander the British
iiag, ivas uiSo Inei’t with Vhc iioivoi’s of
Belgium, Italy, France, Czecho-Slovakia, and
Poland. General Jacques of Belgium tore
his own medal from his breast and placed it
with the others.
Above the tomb are the words of Lincoln
from the innnortal Gettysburg address: “We
here highly resolve that these dead shall not
have died in vain.”
MEREDITH DOES HER PART
ON ARMISTICE DAY
Even ^leredith had to do her ])art toward
^•|io celebration of .Vrmistice Day. After ap-
)n'o]n-iate remarks by Dr. Brewer, the chapel
period was given over to the singing of songs
such as “Hail, Hail, the Gang’s all Here”.
“Over There”, “Katie”, etc., which carried uj=
hack to the tin\es we used to sing thei^e songs
during tlie war. Also several beautiful poems
sui^'ablc to the occasion such as, “In Flanders
Field”, were read. After these the entire
student body and faculty assembled on the
campus and sang “The Star Spangled Ban
