EXIT INTELLIGENCE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Be it more than a rumor--nor can one, lost in the hinterlands of Cambridge, always be quite sure--that a certain gentleman, hight Tunney, lieutenant of Marines, and sometimes called the crowned champion of the world, is to complete the scandal caused by a writer of popular songs, to the extent of entering the Social Register, be it more--then fell is the fortune of all but fatuity. For though when Greek meets Greek, they eat rice pilaf, when prize fighter marries debutante, the public eats the pudding, not alone of publicity, but of despair.

For good in themselves, as representatives of that lump which American intelligence and native wit must eventually leaven, together they have the power of brute force, coupled with complete dulness--and that force--though like the carnivorous dinosaur, its one time proponent, it eventually die, can, like the name carnivorous dinosaur, cause a lot of trouble. One hopes then, and with all sincerity that Tunney will like a good Marine, defend his country against mental eclipse by refraining from establishing a precedent which could well mean the beginning of the Ivory Age.
