"The government of the world has
passed Into America's hands! All we{
in England ask of you is not to acv
too hastily."' Such was the .recent
declaration of Cecil Roberts, British'
war correspondent and editor of The

With the approach of the sixth an-
niversary of Armistice day, November
11, it is peculiarly fitting that the
chief executive of our country should
turn from the coming national con-
test at the polls to express his hope
that America's only world holiday be
the occasion for the dedication of herj
citizens to the cause of permanent
peace and the complete outlawry of
war. This is the sentiment which
President Coolidge has stressed in a
recent letter to the national command-
er of the American Legion.
In the celebration. of this day, it is
htoped that the citizens of the United
States will remember the bravery and
sacrifice of those who gave every-
thing in the greatest crisis in the
history of civilization, not in the light
of experiences of pain and sorrow
lived over again, buC rather with the
purpose of entrenching more firmly
in their minds and hearts the desire
for world peace.
Without encouraging any promisc-
ous increase in the number of special
days celebrated in the United States,I
the American people should feel justi-
fied in according to this day a special'
significance. As was pointed out by
President Coolidge, this is the coun,
try's first and only holiday which has
not been of national import alone.
Until the first observance of Armistice
day, our holidays have been in com-
memoration of some notable event
in the development of our nation. But
with the adding of this date to our;
calendar of. memorial lays, a new
significance has been given to the
ideals of the United States, which have
so long been cherished by her people
but are now to become world ideals
celebrated universally on this day by
the peoples of many nations.
To quote from the president's let
ter, "We shall make our greatest
contributions to human welfare, if we
shall on this international anniversary
of peace restored, turn our thoughts
and endeavors to the ideal of'peace
perpetuated, assured, and established
as a universal benison."
With Thanksgiving in the offing and
Christmas but six weeks away, wise
children are trying to convince their
parents and friends that Hallowe'en
was merely an off night.
Most any man can love nature bu
it takes a hero to love the average

Nottingham Journal, in an address in
Whether or not this statement has
in it any element of finality concern-
ing the international status of the
United States it should serve to call
us to our duty as one of the potentI
influences in the conduct of worldj
affairs. United States at present is
one of the two greatest nations in
the world. As Cecil Roberts expressed
it: "England and America stand as
the last two units in the trial of
civilization. Our England's sun has
begun to set-but it will be a glor-
ious sunset!"
United States can no longer escape
its role of prominence in world affairs.
All parties, all political leaders know
this. They have each admitted it in
one way or another during the pres-
ent campaign. The question before th.
American citizens is which party
should be trusted with the conduct of
these affairs. Under whose guidance
will America best exercise her re-
It is with this in mind, with this. at-
titude towards our international posi-
tion that American voters should

tic policies are important, but large-

problems. Either of the old parties
will insure a businesslike conduct o
national affairs. Both Coolidge and+

businessmen to solve the agricultural

If the voter feels that Coolidge and
Hughes have adopted the logical pol-

definite advances in international
arbitration as the Naval Disarmament
conference and the Dawes plan, that
the whole attitude has been forward-

for the Republican electors will not be
amiss. If, on the other hand; the vot-

To the Editor:
Mr. Ailes' assumption that Theo
done Roosevelt, if living, would sup
port the present League of Nations
is absurd and not based upon any
valid inference. No one doubts tha
Roosevelt favored some general plan
of enforcing by might the decrees of
judges versed in international law,
yet it does not follow that he would
support this particular plan of en
forcing peace, that is, the League of
Nations. It would be as reasonable
to assert that because the world is in
favor of religion that it must favor
some particular form of religion sueh
as Christianity or Buddhism, a condi-
tion which we know to be contradicted
by the known facts. Likewise, it
would be as illogical to assert that we
must all be Baptists or Catholics or
Jews because we believe in some forn
of Christianity.
There are a number of people toda:
who would ardently support an or-
ganization to enforce world peace, but
who see too clearly the evils of the
League of Nations to accept it asa
final solution of the problem of' war.
Yet, according to Mr. Ailes' logic,
they would still be League of Nations
supporters. Ilis definition of a person
in favor of the League of Nations is
one who believes in the solution of
the problem of war by "the creation of
reasonably impartial judges and by
putting an efficient police power--
that is, by putting force in effective
fashion-behind the decrees of the
judges." From such a general state-
ment as this Mr. Ailes has manufac-
tured an assertion that Roosevelt was
a League of Nations man.
Mr. Ailes has a system of logic
particularly his own and a systen
which is singularly well-adapted ti
the passing of a subtle fallacy. Hi;
system of necromancy is also ver:
useful, and I would like to inquire
whether he is a discipfe of Conan
Dolye? Maybe his medium wasn't
functioning properly.

There will be much vigorous dissent
from the sweeping condemnation of
private schools as un-American which
was made the other day by Professor
Sharp of Boston university. With his
enconium upon the public school sys-
tem as the characteristically Ameri-
can there can be no quarrel, or with
his high estimate of its indispensable
value. But he will fail to convince
thoughtful minds of any essential in-
compatibility of the two systems,, of
public and private schools, or of any-
thing in the latter that is necessarily
opposed to the poltiical and social
principles of America.
For the genius of America does not
call for standardization in education,
in industry, or in any respect. In in-
dustry we may grant that each work-
er should be entitled to at least a
minimum living wage. But we certain-
ly cannot decree that nobody shall
rise above that standard of doing
more or better work, and thereby
entitling himself to more pay, or pro-
fit. So in education. We may and
should provide free instruction for all
in the general essentials. But we can-
not deny to those who can afford it
and desire it, the additional and spec-
ial advantages which are to be had
only in private schools; remembering
always that those who go to the ex,
pense of sending their children to
private schools continue at the same
time to pay their full share for the
support of the public schools from
which they derive no direct benefit.
