states such as New York, New Jersey,
and Pennsylvania which it is feared
will extend to all Atlantic seaboard
On the face of the facts it would
appear that the voters of Massachu-
setts have hastily rejected a law
which was bound to redound to their
benefit. Everyone has heard so much
about the cruelties of child labor that
any instrument designed to alleviate
the conditions would be placidly ac-
cepted by the average individual.
Nevertheless, there is a distinct basis
for their feelings. In the vigorous
campaign which carried on previous
to the election, it was pointed out
that a Federal law was too extensive,
that it could not possibly cope with
conditions in all states where indus-
trial conditions assume a variable as-
pect. In the roster of those opposed
the proposal is found such names as
A. Lawrence Lowell, president of Har-
vard university, Samuel Wesley Smith,
president of the Massachusetts insti-
tute of Technology, and other promi-
nent educational and public leaders.
The statement issued by this group,
presents the following argument:
"The ratification of this amendment
would give to Congress undisputed
power for all time to control and
prohibit the labor of every person up
to 18 years of age, on the farm and in
school. It would enable Congress
through Federal agents, thus to inter..-
fere in the discipline of every house-
hold, and take away from parents the
right and duty to educate and guidel
their children. It would go far to des-
troy our Federal union, founded on
the principle of local self-government.
It would enormously increase the pow-
er of Federal bureaucracy. It would
be a national calamity."
This is an extreme stand and should
not be considered to apply to all leg-
islation of this sort. The fundamental
idea behind child labor laws 'is right
even though this specific instrument
appears to have gone too far. Social
legislation of this sort is necessary
to combat the evils growing out of
our modern industrial system and
workers for this reform should not be
discouraged by the reversal. Theyl
should now bend their efforts toward
the enactment of more moderate laws
in the individual states, which will
cope successfully with local condi-

ideal.. Education of the sort offered
by the School of Religion will go a
long way toward providing this re-
A special assembly of the League
of Nations according to a news dis-
patch, will'probably be held at Geneva
some time this winter to vote in Ger-
many as a member of the League. It
is believed, the dispatch declares, that)
the German negotiations will have pro-
ceeded so far within the next few
months, that definite formal steps can
be taken toward ushering Germany
The very fact that people are dis-
cussing the possibility of Germany's
becoming a member of the League, and)
are looking upon such an eventuation
as entirely natural, is indicative of
the rapid recent growth of prestige
which the League has enjoyed, not
only among Europeans nations, but
among the people of the United States.
It is the strongest sort of indication
lthat the League is not, as President
Coolidge has called it, a dead issue,
something to be tossed into the ash
can of party politics along with free
silver and the slave question. On
the other hand, it is pretty definite
evidence that the League is coming
more and more to be regarded as the
medium throtgh which, fuiture in-
ternational differences are to be set-
When Germany is formally admitted
to the society of nations, there will re-
main just one first class nation out-
side of it-the United States. The
United States, to put it buntly, will
then be the only country which defi-
nitely rejects an institution which,
although it has faults, is the only
existing instrument which can even
hope to put a stop to war. It has de-'
cided that what it falsely believes toj
be its own good shall come before
the good of the world.
When the League was formed, it
seemed a forlorn hope; and the coun-
tries subscribing to it subscribed only
in the hope that time would bring to
it a greater measure of influence and
the confidence of the world. Although
it still leaves much to be desired, it
seems to be forging slowly toward its
ideal: the recently passed disarma-
ment protocol, if carried through in
June, will be a great step forward.

Comedy Club will present astheir
second monthly production "The Red
Feather" by A. A. Milne and "Episode"
from "The Affair of Anatol" by Arthur
Schnitzler, Thursday evening, Novem-
ber 20, in Sarah Caswell Angell hall
on or about 8:15 o'clock.I
"The Red Feather" by Milne is a
fantastic costume operetta in two
scenes. It concerns a band of travell
ing mummers, the impressario, a sing-
er, and a dancer, who, quite tired of
their hand-to-hand existence, drop
blissfully into the first convenient
castle. As plays twist luck, it hap-
pens that a widow, not yet too plump,
and her daughter, not yet too old,
are the matrons of the manor; the
conclusion, of course, is inevitable:
the impressario marries landlady
mere, and the singer-handsome, nat-
urally-marries landlady fille.
But there is still the dancer left,
an odd, half-forlorn creature'. The
author somehow has forgotten her in
his matting, and so as the curtain falls
she goes slowly down the road to play
to her audience once more: eternally,
pitifully, beautifully.
In contrast, the Schnitzler "Episode"
is brittlely modern. Molnar, Wedekind,
Maugham, Porto-Riche, the whole
coterie of modern sophists have never
approached the exotic piquancy of
"The Affairs of Anatol," and of them
all, save perhaps ;the final affair,
"The Wedding of Anatol," "Episode"
is the most brilliantly clever diver.
Anatol meets Bianca, his single ser-
ious'amour, years after... . .year
after. . . . and Bianca has forgotten
all about hira. Ie is insulted, his soul
and honor are insulted, and he leaves
in a rage. Bianca, left alone with the
faithful Max, finally unravels it all:
Iat the time, she had been a circus-
rider in St. Petersburg, a prettty,
dainty circus-rider with a pineapple
bob and in a box sat a distinguished
looking gentleman, who asked her to
dinner after the performance.
oh, well! . . .

such descriptive studies. Everything
is a story, some weird adventure, and
r far from being juvenille it intrigues
anyone, no ;matter how mature and
conventional; a hurdy-gurdy wails its
monotone beneath your window-a ter-
rible, frightful tune-and you hurry
to throw the old man a penny to drive
the racket away; but there is not a
single penny to be found, and the
music is hardly worth a nickel: so you
let it go on and on, until finally it
stops blankly on a plaintive, silly dis-
cord; doubtless the old man has died
because of your neglect, but you are
far to busy to look out and see. . .
To sound more impressive, one can
quote the various respi -ted music
critics in their praise of these con-
3 certs. The New York Mail, for one, has
said, "The fifty year old children as
well as the five years olds listened
with bated breath to Mr. Maier's mu-
sical tales of chattering birds and
whispering devils, the ridiculous pro-
i menades of Puck and the marvellous
antics of the Juggling Maid. Yesterday
one could discover many reasons
t why there should be more of these
recitals. The only trouble is there are
not many persons capable of giving
them in Mr. Maier's way."
