Night Editor-JAMES T. HERALD
Several years ago, a joint commis-
sion of American and Canadian en-
gineers and politicians recommended
the construction of the Great Lakes-
St. Lawrence waterway to the domin-:
ion and the national governments as
an inland waterway improvement
beneficial for both. Last November,
another board of experts pronounced
the New York ship canal waterway,
which has been more or less irration-
ally support ed as a rival route to the
St. Lawrence, im-ractical from an
economic standpoint.
It is not surprising then that the
Hoover commission, investigating this
problem, finds the St. Lawrence route
to be the "only logical and econoni-
cally sound route to the sea for the
great Middle West." However, the re-
port does more than recommend the
construction of this waterway and the
development of the power facilities-
under appropriate agencies. As the
first move, Secretary Hoover asks that
negotiations be entered into with
Canada in an endeavor to arrive at an,
agreement on both the canal and
water power development.
With the inclusion of this definite
recommendation for action backed up
by arguments for the canal, it seems
probable that this report will secure
more satisfying results than its pre-
decessor in 1923. Without Congress
taking any action, the President, who
is known to be favorable to the pro-
ject, could direct the state depart-
ment to open negotiations with the
Canadian government.
Complications for the expected par-
leys have been seen by some observ-
ers in the "Great Lakes water steal",
by Chicago. It may be properly as-,
sumed that Canada will be loath to'
approve any waterway plan while the
present case remains in question. The1
final agreement will probably have to.

relation of New York state to thet

Attack upon three unnamed judges
of the Detroit recorder's court as a
triumvirate made up of "one lazy
psycopath" and "two political favor-
ites of the underworld" by August
Vollmer, chief of police of Berkely,;
California, seems to have brought no
little criticism of that investigator of
law enforcement in Detroit. The
principal objection to his report con-
cerns his failure to mention specific
men, and his departure from the cityI
just after he issued the statement,
also brought dissatisfaction. For these
indiscretions or unfortunate incidents,
whichever they may be, he has been
roundly scored by the editorial writ-
ers of Detroit newspapers.
Whatever justification the criticism
may possess, however, it is hoped
that the leaders of public opinion will
not close the incident with them. If
the charges made are sound, the ap-
propriate action should be insisted
upon; if they are false, their falsity
should be established in justice to all
the judges on the Detroit municipal,
bench. If the newspaper which
praises its own former investigation
of incompetent judges really regards
its attitude as a criterion, it will not
allow this opportunity to escape it.
If the legislature acts favorably, the

1927, a new professional school, the

It is an altogether worthwhile pro-

one which should be supported by

The beginnings of the term of
Governor Green seem to indicate that
he is going to fight the battle of poli-
tics above board and in the spotlight,
not behind closed doors and in politi-
cal back-alleys. He has ordered the
books of the state audited and the re-
sults published, not only that the peo-
ple of the state may know the condi-
tion of the government at present, but
also that he may know against whatf
he has to fight and the uphill course
that he must take.
It is wise that such a course bef
taken with the government of this
state, and especially in relation to theI
powers of spending money. Just as
the stockholders of a company have
access at all times to the books of
their company, so the citizens of a
state should have access to its rec-l

fair to vie with the University itself
in national reputation.
