"Europe at the present moment is
a vast arsenal. At any moment some
section of the community might apply
the match that would plunge it into'
all the horrors of another great war,"
declared Edmund D. Morel, Socialist
Member of the British parliament,
and authority on foreign affairs in a1
recent interview.
He charges that the real danger
point in powerful industrial and fin-
ancial interests in France,' and calls
for the convocation of an internation-
al problem and the political and eco-
nomic issues which have created it.
"There is going on at the present
moment," Morel declares, "a more ex-
tensive output of war material than
at any time since the peace. The
chief centers of production are two-
the Skoda works in Czecho-Slovakia
and the Austrian State factories.
French influence and French money
are directing both.
"In the Spring of this year the
French owned shares in the Skoda"
company worth $10,000,000; the man-
aging director and the chief technical
experts are Frenchmen. I go so far
as to say that France new control4
practically the whole war mechanism
of Czecho-Slovakia.
"War material is being produced in
enormous quantities at the Austrian
State factories. During the past 15
months Jugo-Slavia has been supplied,
by the Austrian factories with 1,000,.

wagouloads of infantry machine guns,
large quantities of field guns, and an
immense amount of smaller mate-

wagonloads of smaller ammunition.

(Boston Evening Transcript)
It used to be said in favor of
taching as a profession that those
who followed it were sure of three
months' vacation each year. The arg-
ument was never wholly sound inas-
much as many teachers discovered
that only by devoting the summer to
remunerative labor were they able to
make income equal expenditure. It
is even less sound today. To be sure,
salaries have risen substantially, but
keeping pace with them in the up-
ward movement have been the quali-
fications demanded of candidates for
positions in the schools. As a result
most teachers are confronted with the
desirability, if not necessity, of giving
over the summer months to organ-
ized study and further professional
preparation. Hence the vogue of the
summer schools, never so popular and
populus-as now and never before in-
cluding in their enrollmentsbso large
a proportion of the teachers already
in service.
Reports which have come from, state
superintendents of instruction indi-
cate that between 40 and 50 percent
of the public school teachers of the
country are in attendance at summer
schools, such as French and history,
schools, where they are not only tak-
iug courses in specifima ubjects, such
as French and history, but are re-
ceiving a professional training in
methods that is resinged to make
their own instruction the more effici-
ent. . . . That -teachers in all parts
of the United States have yielded to
the urge for self-improvement is one
of the most hopeful of signs. Import-
ant as the steady revision of the
course of study may prove to be, there
is nothing more calculated to contri-
bute to the eventual advance of the
schools than this determination on
the part of the teachers o keep fully
abreast of the educational times. The
pupils of the country, and of course
the country itself, will be the ulti-
mate gainers. The citizenery of the uf-
ture promises to be more enlightened
than the citizenry of the present.
If the 748 newspapers and maga-
zines 'of Michigan, with an average
'circulation of about 500, have usedthe
word "flapper" only twice in the past
three months, the term has appeared
before the readers of the state 14,538
times. But could one of the three
and one-half million readers form an
accurate definition of the word?
Webster, had he given it space,
would have probably defined flapper
as "one who flaps." But if as a
piece of slang it in any way connects
the girl with abbreviated tresses and
,dresses with the family of domestic
fowls, there's some mistake, for peo-
(ple have always thought of the rooster'
superficial vanity and cocksureness.
Prof. W. G. Bleyer, director of jour-
nalism at the University of Wiscon-
sin, held up a high ideal before the
future newspapermen when he declar.
ed the other day that "one of his mair
duties would be to train a new gener-
ation of readers to whom news, real
news, would appeal as of more im-
portance than the society column, the
sporting page, or the funny strip."
Whenever prohibition in any cou-
try suffers a temporary setback, a"

it recently did in western Canada, the
news is invariably displayed under
big headlines in the "liquor-friendly'
press; but when it either makes a step
forward or is reaffirmed, as it recent-
ly was in Norway, the fact gets lit
tle prominence.
