CIANCELLOR1 LUT ER
The republican government in Ger-
many has another strong defender is
its new chancellor, Dr. Hans Luther,
who presented himself to the Reich-
stag for the first time Monday night,
and made definite assertions concern_-
ing both his national and interna-
tional policy. The fact that his ro-
ceptfon was not enthusiastic seens to
bode ill for the success of his regime,

iany in positions of influence who
sincerely back the republic and the'
eonstitut ion.
Practical work in the service of the
German nation, Dr. Luther d clared
to be the predominating aim of his;
program. He insisted on the efficacy
of the Constitution and declared that{
"every violent, illegal blow at that
Constitution will be iret as high trea-
son." In matters of foreign policy
the new ministry will follow directly
in the steps of former Chancellor
larx, supporting the Dawes plan to
the limit, and working towards parti-
cipation as a member in tho LeagufA
of Nations when it shall have been
successful in combattin a the senti-
ment expressed by the Veroailles
treaty giving Germany fu'l rerponsi-
bility for the war.
Those who are anxious th't Ger-
many again attain a sound position in
world affairs should be gratified at
Dr. Luther's statements, especially
since it was rumored that he was not
in full accord with the Dawes plan.
If stability is to come. Germanyv must
resume her pre-wnr commercial po-
sition, and the Dawes elan appears to
he the best way of accomplishing
this. It is also encouraging to note
that the new ministry is essentially
conservative, that its prinoipal on-
Iponent, ere commnists and (trerP
