Statesmen Appareitly
rerican Refusal to Take


rashington, July 11.-(By A.P.)-
remier Baldwin has suggested Am-
an participation in a reparation
ference, neither officials or diplom-
circles here have been advised of
decision. Heretofore, it was' point-
out tonight, the allied statesmen
e not cared to risk the chance of
erican refusal of an invitation to
e part in a conference on the sub-
view of the attitude of the ad-
istration in the past, it has been
ected here all along that the Un-
States would merely be inform-
ompletely as to whatever the Grit-
project may be, with ,the door to
rican participation left open in
this government itself desires to
the initiative. So far askrevealed
the American attitude remains
the same as it was when Secre-
Haighes, in a statement at New
en some months ago, madethe
gestion that a conference of econ-
c authorities be organized to de-
ine Germany's capacity to pay and
"best methods of payment."

Is World's 'Best

Reigning for three centuries over
the realm of drama, the art of Shakes-
peare has survived the torment of crit-
icism while the works of his contemp-
oraries and many of his followers
have been crushed beneath the merci-
less hoofs of an exacting public. De-
ified by the foremost dramatists of
the 19th and 20th centuries, Shakes-
peare has come down to us, not as a
revival of 17th dramatic foibles, but
as the live,moving drama of every day
and age.
Nothing is so hard a test of the
merits of men as is time. Time has
proclaimed the universal supremacy
of the great Elizabethan favorite. It
was the influence of Shakespeare that
roused the germ of genius from dorm-
ancy in Victor Hugo. So too with
Goethe. It was Shakespeare who in-
spired the greatest of English actors to
their highest fame. Could the great
master but hear the echo of ovations
enthusiastically Wffered for gifted in-
terpretations of his unsurpassed roles,
his pride .would break the shackles of
the tomb.
His was a universal art. The gift
of Shakespeare to the' world's great
literature lies not alone in the fruit/of
his genius.' It is his contribution' to
the art of dramatic writing, his influ-
ence upon posterity, which are the
true marks of a great artist.
Yesterday the British ministers ar-
ranged their reply to the invitation to
put the German debt question into the
hands of an international commission.
The document is a plain and impartial
statement of the English stand on the
question and any interested nation
may offer advise in the settlement.
This- move follows the trend of in-
ternational, especially American, sent-
iment toward the settlement of world
difficulties; the use of arbitration as
opposed to force. To France the Eng-
lish note will come as a peaceful chal-
lenge. The British believe that the
persistence of the' French policy in
the Ruhr will bring ultimately the I
'ruination of European trade relations
as well as international good will on
the continent.
France, however, will probably not
only refuse to co-operate in the new
plan of settling the debt but may be
expected to openly resent the English
note. The new plan would relieve
France of the duty of a debt collector
until the commission had settled the
solvency of Germany. It would also
fre ethe Republic of the constantly in-
creasing burden of maintaining an
army of occupation-a burden which
will certainly become a source of ag-
gravation to the citizenry of France.
The diplomatic world is awaiting with
interest the answer of the French.
Although Jack Dempsey didn't suc-
ceed in knocking out his opponent in
the recent fight, the fight knocked out

John D. is 84 years old but still

"All the evidence from the Allies
as well as the Germans goes to show
that'except in very rare instances,
there are no permanently bad effects
from war gases," said Professor War
kfield. He went on to show that there is
a great misconception in the popular
'mind about this, probably due to the
first chlorine gas .ued in the war.
"There is absolutely no relation be-
tween the use of gas in the war and
the development of tuberculosis," he
continued. "There were 70,552 gas
casulties recorded during the eight
years of warfare; of this number only
two per cent died. Nevertheless, 200,-
000 men have -applied for sompensation
basing their disabildties on the fact
that they were gassed." Dr. Warfield
declared that this popular fallacy has
produced a very harmful effect.

I should do so at once.

Pessinistic Representation of Life I
Called Charcteristic of
Cheap Writing
(By Verena Moran)
"Every good book is a book of lif
-one which fills its 'readers with en
ergy and makes them feel the spur o
vitality," declared Prof. T. E..Rankin
of the rhetoric department, in his lec
ture, "What Is a Good Book?" yester
day aftebook penetrated with the con
sciousness of human value Is a gre
book," continued Professor Rankin
as he pointed out in a general way
the requirements of a worth whil
Defines Worthy Subject
"The life of a mind and the life o:
a human soul as we actually exper
ience it is a most worthy subject t
write about," said Professor Rankin
"A good book is never one which F
written by a man who is wedded t
his art, but by one who, in his mind IF
wedded to the life of humanity, an
who has a generous share in the hopes
passions, ideals, suffering and joy 01
The business of all literature Is t
communicate, to convey something t<
the readers. Not only should a good
bookpicture what the author sees ii
life,, but what slife ough to be it
all its beauty, grace and charm, foi
there is nothing more cheapening that
a pessimistic presentation of life only
as one sees it," asserted Professoi
"Imitation Not Natural"
"It his a general tendency of authors
to look into the pages of some write
whom he admires and then write lik
him. Imitation is not natural and
does not tend to produce our best in
literature. We should not seek t
find ourselves," advised Professo
Rankin, as he explained that the pro-
fessors here in the University are
aiming to help' the youth find out ne
thing-whether he is shallow or not
If a student discovers he has dept
instead of this wretched shallowness
then Ihe is advised to attempt t
Professor Rankin also spoke abou
the critics. "The Reviewers ar
worse than the reviewed," he explain
ed, "and what we need is a leader i
the critics whose mind is exalted, i
the consciousness of the fundam'enta
strength of our humanity. A grea
number of our critics are suppress
ing their minds in a struggle to be lik
someone else, to belong to a school
but criticism is a delicate operation o.
the mind and should not invade th
field of imitation.
Readers At Fault
"The life of the smi-sporty clasi
is what we are getting in our novell
today, and this is not a great theme
If we haven't many good books, it ii
the faulit of the readers," said Pro
fessor Rankin, "for the power of th
writer mes from the response o
the readers and if we had a more solic
demand among intelligent readers w
would have more good books.

"A good book," continued Professor
Rankin, "is also one which is written
in a style that unfolds itself, one
which follows the rhythms of the
mind." Style alone never made a
book great, but it has much to do with
the result. . Good style is obtained by
