which to impress the student with the
meritoriousneso of >literary men is
through making an exclusive appeal
to the aesthetic sense, others were of
the opinion that the merits of such
men and their works could only be
fully comprehended by a historical in-
terpretation and an evolution of the
contributions in terms of their influ-
ence upon social forces and ideals of
It .has become an increasingly hard
task to instill in the younger genera-
tion a whole hearted support for mon-
umental literature, but the reason for
this can possibly be traced to the over
conscientious attitude which has been
assumed by many professors in inter-
preting the writings to their students.
Contrary to the old method of purely
historical treatment, the instructor
now undertakes to interpret for his
students. It is here that the student
is deprived of the thing for which lit-
erature was primarily intended, name-
ly a personal interpretation of the
words of a great genius. 3
Could the historical element be pre-
sented, so that the impression of the
writer would be but suggested, and
then the individual be free to inter-
pret its meaning in his own way, the
revelations of literature would be
many times increased.

It Might Hare Been ,
In the Republican nominating con-
vention of 1920, Senator Hiram John-
son, of California, said: "Under no
circumstances xill I accept the nom-
ination for the vice presidency. I
must decline with thanks. We might
as well have that understood now and
end that sort of thing." This state-
ment was designed. to put an end to
efforts to satisfy the California sen-
ator with second place on the Repub-
At that time Republican leaders had
become worried about the showing
Johnson was making in the' precon-
vention campaign. His vigorous meth-
ods, and what they termed his radic-
al stand on many issues of the day led
them to broach the suggestion that
Johnson be contented with secoid
on the party ticket and lepve the first
place to a man of more conservative
views and tactics. The suggestion is
said to have come from men who had
the controlling voice and could have
delivered, But Hiram Johnson
answer was an emphatic "No."
Today it might have been Presi-
dent Hiram Johnson instead of Pres-
ident Calvin Coolidge. You never can
The False Red Alarm
Newspapers for the last two or three
weeks have given much space and at-
tention to the possibilities of a Red
revolution in Germany. The current
belief was that a revolution was due
and last Sunday was fixed as the date
of its beginning. The day-passed with-
out any unusual disturbances. Yes-
terday we read that the Reds, 4.-
manding bread, have instituted riots
in Dresden. Large mobs carrying
*lba and marching through the streets
were said to have kept the Saxon cap-
itol in an uproar the whole day. The
fall of the Cuno government and the
exclusive Socialistic control of the
country is shortly expected and the
popular opinion seems to be that Ger-
many will be overrun by the forces
of destruction and anarchy.
A careful examination of the facts
will reveal, however, that disorders
such as those in Dresden are exagger-
ated and highly-colored, and that
grounds for this fear 'of a Red 'up-
rising are insecure. Every German
knows what revolution is, and what
it brings with'it. The loss of millions
of lives, the destruction of property,
famine, crime, pestilence, and all oth-
er results of a disruption of law and
order-it would take extreme suffer-
ing and desperation to force a clear
headed and intelligent people, such as
eth Germans are, to take such risks.
People will seek strong reasons be-
fore they ever attempt to dislodge the
existing order of things. A few br.a4
line revolts, a few .fanatical anarch-
ists, a few idealists, are not the mate-
rials of which revolutions are con-

THE YANKEE WAY
(New York Times)
Col. John Calvin Coolidge, the Pres-
ident's father, has all that reserve,
habit ,of understatement,, dislike' of
gush and ironic depreciation of com-
pliment that characterize the old
old Yankee stock. A Yankee is natur-
ally non-committal, except for suffic-
ient cause. He likes to qualify his
praise. Excess is hateful to him. A
schoolmate of the late H. H. Rogers
said, when the latter was in his finan-
cial prime: "Yes, I'm told Henry has
not made out so bad, considerin'."
There is an evident dry humor in
this habit of depreciation; but the
Yankee rather resents questions. He
prefers to disclose his full opinion at
his own time. As he says of certain
cows, he is "a hard milker."
"I think he'll do fairly well," the
Colonel says of his son.fi ,"He did
fairly well as governor, and I guess
he'll do fairly well as President."
That tempered "fairly well" is delight-
ful. It is worth more, coming from
such a source, than any flamboyant
string of superlatives. For nearly
three hundred years these Coolidges
have been trained to work and to
endure. There has been, it might al-
most be said, "hard sledding," what
would be called a "crisis" in the more
emotional West, among the Yankee
farmers : most of the time. They
work hard and shut up. In better for-
tune they do the same. Prosperity
and distinction they take as unde-
monstratively as they take a refrac-
tory soil, bad crops, the weather or the
bull calf "actin' like all possesed." It
won't do for a Vermont father to re-
veal the pride he has in his son's
achievements.. That would be con-
trary to the rugged discipline of labor
and duty, the silent but understood en-
couragement, the personal self-respect
that never permits itself to be daz-
zled; and "boys," of whatever age,
mustn't be "spiled."
So Colonel Coolidge doesn't think
of his son as President, but "just as
a good and honest boy who'll do his
best with any job given him. He
always has been that way, and I
guess. he always will be.." Calvin
wasn't precocious or extraordinary.
He did his work at school and. at
home. "He was a great hand on the
farm." He wasn't brought up to any
system of rules. "If there are rules,"
says the father shrewdly, "it gives a
boy a chance to break them. "I told
Calvin algrays to do. his job well.
And he always did. That's what my
father taught me and that's what his
father taught him."
Calvin Coolidge has always done his
job well, done his best in every em-
ployment. He was brought up to do
his best and say little about it. He
begins his enormous task at Washing-
ton without flutter or elation. The
nation knows that he will do his best
and "guesses," with his father, that

"he'll do fairly well as President."
That means excellently well, as may
be expected of a man of trained intel-
ligence and judgment, honest, efficient,.
fearless," dreading praise, not blame."
