There are Cassandras who
cannot change the habit of
protphesying calamities; there -I
are cynics who flatly deny the
possibility of human progress;
there are critics who have noth-
ing to say unless it be destruc-
tive; and there are idealists
who simply will not have half-
loaves. But most people, are
willing to remember that Rome
was not built in a day. It
would be against all precedent
if everything that should be
happened at once, and the hu-
man race would probably be
more dissatisfied with the mil-
lennium than without it. None
contends that we have a whollyI
changed world in 1924, and that f
all that we hope for has come
to pass. But it is possible to
build up a pretty good argumentI
for an astonishingly better world
in 1924 than we had in 1914, and
to affirm that the amelioration
in international relations furn-
ishes a justifiable belief that the
stupendous sacrifices of the
World War were not in vain.
-The New York Times.
Ten years ago yesterday, there
came the first of the declarations of
war that grew into the Great War
which ravaged the world for four
years, and the conflagration that

started first as a fight between Aus-
tria and her tiny but sturdy neighbor,
Serbia, developed until the blood
stained waves covered the whole
world. The ten years since that time
have marked the most profound
changes that have ever occurred in
the history of the world, and mighty
changes are at work even to change
the very fundamentals of society.
Premier MacDonald, in opening the
Inter-Allied Conference, gathered in
London to settle some of the perplex-
ing problems harrassing the world
today, said, "We are at the end of a
momentous decade that has complete-
ly transformed the owrld. Our work
closes one era and opens another."
It is only possible to grasp the great
import of the change by comparing
Europe of yesterday, and the Europe
of today, or rather, the Europe we
would hope to find.
Europe of yesterday was a Europe
of distrust and hate in which the
Triple Alliance, the Triple Entente
and all the secret diplomacy of years,
combined to make her an armed
camp, each suspicious of his neigh-
bor, fearful of attack, jealous of
power, and Germany, the leader of

it to be necessary to "purge humanity

horror and a thoroughness that would
lead one to wonder if the doctor ap-
proved the medicine for "humanity
diseased," or felt humanity improved
by the scorching lesson of war.
Outwardly today, Europe is still in
the chaotic state left by the struggle.1
Racial hatreds still stir her people,
jealousies, fear, distress, tear at the
vitals of her civilization, but still
there is a ray of hope. In the ten
years that separate the present war
from the day of 1914, great socialC
changes have swept Europe and left
her, no longer a land of aristocrracy
and monarchy, but a haven of demo-
cracy, young it is true, but still toI
,grow into magnificent flower. The
decade has seen the rising of the
common peoples of Europe, and the
lessons of the French Revolution re-
peated. Though the same emotions
move her, though the same economic
distress threatens to overturn her so-
ciety, Europe today is far different
from that old land of privilege and
power for the classes, and opportun-
ities are opening up to her, vistas of
undreamed possibility. Europe is not I
dying nor decaying. From the scorch-
ing lessons of the war, she has arisen,
purged of her sins, ready to begin
The other day we heard a man say
something. He was simply talking to
another man, and saying the most
commonplace things. And then he
said one of them beautifully. His
whole thought burst out through
those words and we knew it. There
\was rhythm and a happy sound to
them. So we listened.
What he said could have been spok-
en in a dzen different ways, lacking
inflection or metre, or something else
that makes words live. If it had, weI
would never have heard it. This car-
ried purity of feeling with it and a
spark of reinemberance. All that heI
said he meant, and he meant it in the,
way that he said it. Consequently we
forgot that the day was hot, and that
we had already met enough casual ac-

realized that he is just an ordinary

(The Manilla Times)
The Free Press, unofficial organ of
the estudiantes, has been carrying on
a prize contest for the best answersf
to the questions "What is Independ-C

were received, of which several are

Ipublished in the current issue of the
periodical. Most of them, including
the winning effort, are a striking com-
mentary on the results of the educa-
tional system here.
The prize winner thinks that with
independence, "foreign capital will
pour into the country." Another says,
"it will promote economic develop-
ment, stabilize commerce and. indus-
try, and encourage the investment of
foreign capital." Views of some of the
other contestants follow:
"The patriotic people of the Phil-
ippines will then become brave, in-
dustrious, wise, and will have poten-
tial 'commercial advantages."
"We need independence so that our
money collected shall never be sent
to the treasury of our yoke's hold-
"We can then improve our army and
"When we have independence we
can pass an exclusion act, excluding
Chinese and Japanese for a certain
number of years."
"We can declare war at any time."
"We can lower the salary of the
Filipino chief executive, and will not j
have to tay hin $100 a day or $36,-
000 a year"
"We shall have a national holiday-
that crowning blessing."
And so on, ad lib.
These reasons show a capacity for
clear thinking on the part of the
younger generation which ought to
cheer the advocates of compulsory
popular education.
It is true that a few reel-W.- were
a different note. One young woman
remarks that "the majority of the
i people are the easy prey of wily pol-
iticans and rich caciques." A young
man says, "many join the independ-
ence chorus because they are afraid
of being branded unpatriotic." But
to our way of thinking the prize
should have been awarded to the in- j
dividual who stated that independence
would mean more taxes, scarcity of
