The National Education association
at its convention in Philadelphia fos-
tered the creation of a Federal de-
partment of education. Miss Mary'
McSkimmon of Brookline, Mass., who
carried tremendous influence at this
conference may be quoted as saying;
"The United States is the laughing-
stock among nations because it as yet
has no national department of educa-
The Curtis-Reed bill, which is now
pending before Congress, is a means
whereby this state of affairs may be
changed, according to the association.

mouthpieces of an immense machine.
Regardless of the merits of the bill,
a Federal department of education
would be a usurpation of State con-
cerns. The State is better suited to
decide upon a remedy to combat its
evils of education than is the nation-
al government. Intimate knowledge
of local affairs could not possibly be
of much significance in Washington.
The national government is already

should be handled by the States--it

Apropos of the above it may be Mr.
Pollock is somewhat soured at the
varied reception of his drama, "The
Enemy," which he advocates as a
"stirring indictment against war."
Strange to say critics have been far
knider to this play than to the dramat-
ist's recent panaca, "The Fool," which
received an immense amount of at-
tention from the public in spite of
critical sneers. Burns Mantle, Percy
Hammond, and William Lyon Phelps,
all agree in putting "The Enemy"
among the ten best plays produced
last season in New York.
Burns Mantle's "official list," the
most recently published, included, be-
sides "The Enemy," "Craig's Wife"
(the Pulitzer Prize play), "The Green
Hat," Eugene O'Neil's "The Great
God Brown," "The Last of Mhs. Chey-

Wisdom Tooth," "Young Woodley" (in
