Education at Any Price
(The Summer Michigan Daily)
Is education too costly? This is a
question that more and Tnore is be-
coming a bugbear of discussion and
comment among city and state govern-
ments that are obliged to maintain
schools on a progressive basis.
This is a time when cities and states
as well as individuals feel economic
pressure and financial stress. It is a
time when everybody preaches 'and
few practice economy. At such a
time it is but natural that the ques-
tion is raised as to whether too much
public money is going for educational
non-essentials. Such charges must be
first of all faced by school authorities
themselves; they must be able to
justify every expenditure.
Extravagance, waste, and graft
should not be tolerated at any time,
and least of all during these bardI
times. But it is safe to say that thf
funds for education are the most con-
scientiously administered of all tho,3-
waised by public taxation.
And yet there always are, and there
always will be at few critics who raise
the cry that schools cost too miuch.
These critics are apt to forget that the
price of everything else we have hag
increased' profoundly. Food, clothes,
light, land and transportation, and
salaries and rent have become more
and more expensive during the last
:lecade; and the cosit of school build-
ings, school equipment, janitor's ser-
vices, and everything else that must
be provided for in connection with an
educational institution has obeyed the
same law.
But what of the charge that educa-
tion is too expensive for the state tc
afford? The only answer is that edu-
^ation cannot cost too much. The
only, reply is that education at any
price, as any sane minded and right
hinkihg person will realise, is much
ess expensive than ignorance and her
playmate, immorality and crime. Our
government is founded upon the prin
^iple of intelligent and virtuous citi-
'enship. .And the only means of in-
,uring intelligent and virtuous citi-
zenship is by education-education at
any price.

THE RUHR SITUATION
Chancellor Stresemann has ordered
passive resistance in the Ruhr to
cease. He has found that despite Eng-
land's refusal to back France in her
policy of aggressive occupation, the
Franco-Belgian governments are de-
termined to keep their military forces
in tle occupied territory until their
demands are met by Geimany.
Bonar Law, in his last note to Pre-
mier- Poincare, questioned the legality
of the occupation. Poincare replied
that France and Belgium were justi-
Pled in their action under the Peace
Treaty as they had not entered the ter-
ritory until Germany had fully shown
that she did not intend to fulfill her
obligations, and that they were hold-
ing it only, as a guarantee for further
payments. ,He further said that as long
as the occupants and officials of the
Ruhr district continued to disobey the
French authorites and to oppose the
delivery of goods, a policy which he
termed "passive resistance" the allied
military forces would remain in the
country. Only when this resistance
ceased, he stated, would the military
occupation of the district be relin-
quished.
Stresemann has now given the or-
der° which surrenders the point. If it
i3 cbeyed, the demands of France will
be net. French authority will be re-
spected and the workmen will return
to the mines and factories. It is then
only for Poincare to make good his
promise to England in order that the
former friendly relations between the
two countries may be re-established.
For a year these relations of the
once such firmly united allies have
been strained. For a perfectly nat-
ural reason the interests of the two
countries have been diametrically op-
posed. France wanted reparations to
rebuild her devastated territories.
England, which. depends upon trade
for her very existence, was just re-
establishing her commerce with Ger-

An article in a recent issue of the
New Republic quotes leywood Broun
of the New York World on the Aineri-
can press. "Travelling across Agier-
ica," says Mr. Broun, "one is struck
by the singular samenpss, of all the -
newspapers. From Toledo, Ohio to
Havre, Montana, Mutt and Jeff follow
the traveller. The man in New York
reads what Bob Edgren and Hype
Igoe have to say about the fight, and
so does the citizen of Portland, Ore-
gon. New York and Chicago estab-
lish the thoughts and opinions of
ninety percent of all' the people in
North America."
The charge cannot be denied. This
is an age of standardization. From
New York to San Francisco and New i
Orleans to Menominee, Mich., the
same type dances to the same bar-
Iarous dance-tunes, reads the Satur-
day Evening Post and "The Sheik",
plays golf and bridge, and keeps up
with big league baseball. Every ev-
ening thousands of women a thou-
sand miles apart read the canned
beauty hints, thousands of men dis-
cuss the Teague of Nations and the
coal situat~on from syndicated . arti-
cles, and a whole nation laughs over
,Andy Gump and Mrs. Jiggs. Whole-
sale standardization engulfs a nation.
False Alarm
The bankers" in convention at At-
lantic City have agreed that txe coun-
try today is enjoying real prosperity,
but nevertheless are worried over the
"radical" tendencies spreading over
the country. They seem to fear the
future especially as regards radical
leg.slatgon towards the railroads,
towards free trade, and government
ownership.
Their fearsare groundless. People
will seek strong reasons before they
ever attempt to dislodge the existing
order of things. A few disturbances,
a few fanatical anarchists, a few
idealists, are not the -material of
which revolutionary radicalism is con-
cocted. It will take extreme suffer-
ing and desperation to force people
to turn from the known to the un-
known.

ing here to beat the quota seem to be
willing to take a chance on our form
