spirit of loyalty, which can only come
from reverence for constituted au-
thority, from faith in the things thatI
are. There must be loyalty to the
family; loyalty to the various civic
organizations of society; loyalty to
the government, which means first of
all the observance of its laws, and
loyalty to religion. These are funda-
mental virtues. They are the chief
characteristics of faith. If education
has not given that clearer insight into
all that touches our life, whether it
come from our relationship to the
physical world, or our relationship
to mankind, it will be a disappoint-
ment and a failure. If it has given
that insight, it will be a success; it
will be the source of that power
through which alone has been, and
can be, wrought many wonderful
works."
That these are particularly wise
words, worthy of being pondered by
every young person who faces the
battle of life, as well as by all others,
will, we think, be admitted by all re-
flective minds.
THE VICE PRESIDENTIAL PERIL I
(The Chicago Tribune)
Something ought to be done for the
vice presidency. Considering the prob-
ability of succession to the presidency,
if we were pacifist and therefore ac-
customed to theorizing with our eyes
shut to the facts, we should think it
certain that any ambitious man in po-
litical life would jump at a nomina-
tion to the vice presidency. The fact
is the jumping is all the other way.
With the Republican convention in
session, each day's press contains the
passionate refusal of some politician
to be considered even tentatively for
that high honor. The political ucene
is full of panic stricken celebrities.
scrambling for fire escapes, jump-
ing out of windows, scuttling wildly
for the bush. If this goes on no po-
litical headliner will dare to attend a
national convention and newspaper
reports of the course of proceedings
will be full of items like this: "It is
reported that Senator Borah was seen
on the street today disguised in red
whiskers. Frank Lowden is believed
to be attending the convention in half
hose and a rounabout selling crack-
erjack and gum to the delegates. It
is rumored that General Dawes let
his whiskers grow some weeks and
got into town about midnight, having
come from Chicago on the bumpers
in the role of J. Raglan Patchmore.
Mr. Beveridge was taken off a train
on which he was passing through the
city in 'fancied security, but escaped
from the sergeant at arms. A thor-
ough search for the distinguished fug-
itive is being made in drain pipes and
chimneys. There is a wild rumor
afloat at-this hour that a man named
Jessup or Jensen, who runs a freight
elevator in Cosmopolis, 9., has said he
would accept the vice presidency if it
could be guaranteed that he would get
his present job back at any time. But
this rumor is generally discounted by
experenced political obeservers."
it is an astonishing situation. IHar-
rison, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley,
and Harding, five of our 29 Presi-
dents, have died in office and been
duly succeeded by their respective
Vice Presidents..dThetPresidency is
universally coveted as the highest po-
litical honor on earth and yet an Am-
erican public man confronts thepos-
sibility of succession to it as if it
were a term in Sing Sing or Leaven-
wortli.
We cannot explain the vice presi-
dential panic on the ground that elec-
tion to that office is fatal to the future
of the victim, for many of the panic

stricken can hardly seriously look double the pay and throw in the use
forward to an election to the Presi- of a yacht. We might install a radio
dency. Perhaps It is the ordeal of set under the Vice President's desk,
listening to the senate for four years. or put in a comfortable couch with aI

Whatever the reason, the fact is there tte catagory of human disasters
and something, as the reformers say, where it now seems to be well to the

fever, T. B., smallpox, diphtheria
