noriam

The world has just lost another, of its great
sportsmen - Sir Thomas Lipton. The sudden
death of Britain's valiant yachtsman has taken
from, that field one of the most colorful figures it
has known.
Defeat never daunted Sir Thomas. Time and
time again he attempted to bring the America's
Cup back'to his country, only to meet with failure.
Yet he was never bitter because of that fact; he
had only generous praise for his opponents. His
unfailing courage won the hearts of all Americans
who read of his racing attempts, and despite na-
tional pride, most of us were sincere in thehope
that last year he would win the famed internation-

The Revelers

Modern communication and transportation
have presented new methods of promoting inter-
national good will. The next trip to be made by'
the head of a government, we read, will be Premier
Laval's visit to President Hoover within the next
month.
Public opinion, it appears, keeps our presidents
at home. Wilson was severely criticized for leav-
ing the White House to attend the Versailles
Peace Conference. Since then, no President has
left the country while in office. Yet it is apparent
that a better understanding of the problems of our
fellow men may be obtained by travel.
Prime ministers of European governments have
all taken to personal visits during the past year.
Ambassadors, in most cases, have no wide author-
ity to make promises\or accept terms in their own
name. They must communicate with home offices
first. The reciprocal exchange of visits on the part
of government heads will do much to foster and
encourage international peace, and we hope the
day is not too far off when our own President
will be able to make a swift visit to Europe in
critical moments instead of having to wait for
visitors.

Gentlemen:
Nothing has been exaggerated in regard to the
behaviour of the Legionnaires at Detroit. They raised
particular Hades. Some of our fellow-citizens didn't
see any "drunks and disorderlies." That contir gent
better have its eyes examined! Of course the men
were sober when they marched. Otherwise they
would not have been able to march. But the drink-

the stuff was procured in Windsor., which suspended
