Sen. Hiram W. Johnson, of Califor-

ator takes a slap at the proposed
American participation in the World

Johnson, "its genesis is the League of
Nations. If we become a part of what
is happening abroad, we should be
but the dupe or the prey of the one
faction or the other." A few more

that which Johnson administered, and

allusions to making the world safe for
democracy, or dobig away with wars;
the whole speech is simply a some-
what blunt -expsition of the secret
diplomacy, selfishness, stupidityand
schemes of Aexploitation behind joint
European political relations.
Johnson shows that American states-
men are willing and consider them-
selves qualified to settle European
problems when they have been iun-
able to cope with our own mining,
railroad, or farming questions.
"These simple problems of our sim-
ple American- environment are too
stiff for us; but we are told, and in
many cases actually believe, that the
infinitely sti'ffer and deeper prob-
lems of Europe need only the applica-
tion to them of American wisdom."

(New York Times)
While sociologists are shaking the
head and wagging the beard over the
'prospect that civilization will be
swamped by the mass of the unedu-
cated, the Younger Generation is
grappling with a more serious ail-
ment. In London, a few days ago,
money was raised for the hospitals by
(a debate under the Presidency of Lady
Astor on the subject: "Resolved,
That education is the curse . of the
country." The best undergraduate
talent of the Oxford and Cambridge
Union Societies was drawn upor to
argue the matter. True to their ob-
seurantist tradition, two of the three
Oxford speakers took the affirmative
Cambridge, forward looking as usual,
stood for the higher things.
The charges brought against British
education were serious. "Forty
years ago newspapers were written
for the instruction of parents and
not for the amusement of children."
But this is to ignore the possibility
that education has been so brilliantly
successful in recent years that chil-
dren no longer need instruction, while
our realistic age has understood that
for parents it comes too late. What
'could be said for education? One
speaker ventured into perilous depths
'by arguing that "the public schools
did produce gentlemen." Innocent
cisatlastic people had- supposed that
Divine Providence produced - gentle-
men, who thereafter were sent to
English public schools for training
in the technique of their vocation. It
seems that this is wrong.
The pro-educationists seem to have
realized that -they were getting the
worst of it, for their last champion,
no less a person than the President of
the Cambridge Union, -boldly defied
the movers of the motion by denying
that England was- suffering under
any curse at all. If this is so, a
great number of professional literary
men have been misleading us. Fur-
ther, said this monumental optimist,
"there was no good calling education
a curse, because it was a fact of
nature and inevitable." This gen-
tleman has obviously never been priv-
ileged to observe American statesmen
of the Era of Normalcy.
Altogether, the anti-educationists
seem to have had all the better of the
argument, but the audience followed
the best British tradition in voting
for education by an overwhelming ma-
joi'ity. Of course, this is not final.
Mr. Wells might ask what either
Oxford or Cambridge knows about edu-
cation, that they should discuss it so
glibly. A sounder criticism of the de-
bate was made 'by Lady Astor as its
conclusion. "Here were brilliant
young men not believing a word they
said, and yet saying it with wit and
charm. It made one feel a dread about
the future of democracy." Educated
and uneducated should ponder this.

The Refreshing 'Dip After Studying
'SWIMMING, such a jolly sport, becomes even more enticing after a few hours
of studying during the summer heat! The wise college woman indulges in
cooling dips in nearby waters during the summer session that her collegiate work
may seem less irksome and life 'more pleasant! This sahI of bathing suits will
prove advantageous to those who need a new suit.
