Night Editor-i. A. LAANSMA
"That man, I think, has had
a liberal education who has been
so trained in his youth that his
body is the ready servant of his
will, and does with ease and
pleasure all the work that, as
a mechanism, it is capable of;
whose intellect is a clear, cold,
logic engine, with all its parts
of equal strength and in smooth
working order, ready, like a
steam engine, to be turned to
any kind of work, and spin the
gossamers as well as forge the
anchors of mind; whose mind
Is stored with a knowledge of
the great and fundamental
truths of nature, and of the
Ilaws of bier. operaticins; one
who, no stunted ascetic, is full
of life and fire, but whose pas-
sions are trained to come to heel
by a vigorous will, the servant
of a tender conscience; who has
learend to love beauty, whether
of nature or art, to hate all vile-
ness, and to respect others as
himself. Such an one, and no
other, I conceive has had a lib-
eral education, for he is, as com-
pletely as man can be, in harm-
ony with nature.'
--THOMAS HUXLEY.
THE ELEVENTH HOUR RESCUE
The Democratic National. Conven-
tion has at length succeeded in crawl-
ing out of a bad hole. The party was
faced by a crisis of the first magni-
tude. Torn asunder by internal
strife, the Democrats had lost the con-
fidence of their own members and had
earned the condemnation of the whole
country. To emerge from such a sit-

nation a man of first-class ability was
needed.
In the critical moment, the dele-
gates realized this, and with realiza-
tion came salvation. After all the
acrimonious and wearying struggles
that had almost rent the party in
twain, the Convention was slowly at-
tracted to a man who could well play
the part of rescuer and unifier. The
final victory of John W. Davis came
as a result.
The nomination of Mr. Davis came
slowly but it was an unforced nomin-
ation if there ever was one. Politic-
al bosses had failed, log-rolling had
wrought nothing but havoc, and fin-
ally, by a slow gravitation, the Con-
vention united upon a capable com-
mander when defeat was very close.
This, perhaps, is the outstanding fea-
ture of the Democratic Convention,
that petty politics failed and good
sense was in the end victorious.
Mr. Davis was in no sense an ag-
gressive candidate. From the begin-
ning of the caucus, he had just enough
delegates to keep his name before the
Convention. The final result was a
miniature revolution, and the effects
of the revolution may still prove dis-
asterous. There are animosities to
be soothed, personal differences to
be adjusted and far reaching plans
for the campaign to be worked out.

YACDONALD EXPLAINS HIMSELF
(The New York Times)
By his visit to Paris Ramsay Mac-
Donald has done what he could to re-
pair the damage caused by the misun-
derstanding between himself and M.
Herriot. That he in any way sought,
to mislead the French Premier is, of
course, out of the question. It may
be that M. Herriot misunderstood
him, or that Mr. MacDonald had not
fully developed his ideas when he
talked with the former. The publica-
tion of the British White Paper shows,
however, that French fears were jus-
tified; since the British declaration of
policy differed in several points from
the assurances which M. Herriot
had brought back. One in particular
caused much excitement in Paris. This
concerns the sanctions to be applied in
case of a flagrant failure of the Ger-
mans to carry out the Dawes plan.
It will be recalled that the experts'
report provides that in such an event
"it is plainly for the creditor Govern-
ments, acting with the conscious-
ness of joint trusteeship for the
financial interests of themselves
and of others who will have ad-
vanced money upon the lines of the
plan, then to determine the nature
of sanctions to be applied and the
method of their rapid and effective
application." Over this point the
French and British have differed from
the beginning, for it involves the pos-

sibility of a second occupation of the
Ruhr. The French have sought to
have the penalties clearly agreed to
beforehand, and published to Germany
and the world. The British have not
been willing so to commit themselves.
In the matter of determining when
and whether the sanctions should be
applied the French have insisted that
the decision rightfully belongs in the
hands of the Reparation Commission.
Mr. MacDonald suggects that this
power be given to the League of Na-
tions or its Financial Committee, or
possibly to some other body.
This problem is best solved at the
coming conference. Certainly Mr.
MacDonald's method of placing it on
the proposed agenda was unfortunate.
His inconclusive speech before the
House of Commons on Tuesday, cou-
pled with the lame attempts to make
it appear that no such suggestion had
been made as is actually contained in
the White Paper, have done much to
strengthen the hands of M. IHerriot's
enemies, who are falling back on the
old cry of "perfidious Albion." The
incident contains a lesson and a
warning. The lesson is that frank-
ness as a diplomatir weapon must be
used consistently if it is not to pro-
duce a sharp reaction. The warning
is that, despite the change of person-

alities in France -and England, the
French and British attitudes toward
the entire reparations problem show
little change. There is a tacit recog-
nition of this in Mr. MacDonald's
words as he returned to London:
"We are facing an exceedingly intri-
cate series of misunderstandings
which have grown up during the
past few years." And he added that
althcught they had made a substantial
beginning, ard were taking up one
ques ton at a time, "We are not mag-
icians and we are obliged to deal with
public opinion and with our Parlia-
ments."
The campus will look different next
fall. Several new buildings finished
and ready for use, many others near
completion, and other improvements
are on the way. But it will still be
the same old place.

ceeded in hand-cuffing William Jen-
nings Bryan by putting his broth-
er on the ticket.

Discouragement must be turned into
hope and good cheer. Truly the task
is great. But the man selected is one
to whom great tasks may well be en-
trusted.
Democrats may well congratulate
themselves upon an eleventh hour es-
cape from the deep sea troubles; and
citizens in general who may have be-
come more or less disgusted with all
political parties as a result of the
Convention just adjourned must bear
in mind the opinion of John Stuart
Mill, whotwrote, "I have learned to
have great trust in the capability of
the American people to see the prac-
tical leanings of a political question
truly and rapidly when the critical
moment comes."
WHERE THE BLAME LIES
The people of the country have
been pouring out their condemnation
upon the men who represent us at
the seat of government, but do the
citizens of the U. S. ever stop to think
that Congress is merely a reflection
of the peojle of the country? We have
sent them to represent us, therefore
we cannot escape some of the blame
put upon them for failure to perform
national service.
The men that are sent to Congress
take their cue from us and if we do
not take advantage of our opportun-
ity to do a national service, 4hey, in
turn, will see the positions to which
we elect them as places from which
to strengthen their own personal po-
sitions and prominence.
That ideals of our Republic must
mean much to us in order to mean
anything to Congress, for Congress-
men cannot be expected to be such
extraordinary men that ideals which
are not of the- people will mean muchi
to them. The answer to the problem
seems to be the growing demand andj
necessity of a sense of responsibility
-individual responsibility to the Re-
public and to the ideals upon which It
was founded.

EDITORIAL COMMENT
PRETTY SMOOTH, ONE MAY SAY
(The Detroit News)
The first impulse is not to analyze
the Democratic national ticket. It is
rather to smile at the delicious man-
ner in which William Jennings
Bryan has been hand-cuffed.
After the erstwhile peerless leader
had pronounced his dread interdic-
tion, it was direct definance for the
Democratic delegates to nominate
John W. Davis for President. The
action looked like a direct challenge
to Mr. Bryan to bolt the ticket.
But Mr. Davis proved he was
well cast for the part of a diplomat-
ist. As the new leader of his party,
he went to the Convention hall for
conferences with his associates. Out
of these conferencescame the nom-
ination of Gov. Charles W. Bryan,
brother of William Jennings, for
Vice-President. The open hostility
or silent oppostion of the elder
Bryan faded away. The magic name
of Bryan, however innocuously
placed had taken the terrific curse
of Wall street off the ticket. Mr.
Davis must chuckle quietly as he
considers the way by which he de-
livered himself from long months
of anathema.
THE AMATEUR TOUCH
(The Baltimore Evening Sun)
The last two days have found the
American athletes struggling hard to
hold first place in the Olympic games
at Paris. And with news of surpris-
ingly good performances, as for ex-
ample Taylor's record in the 400-meter
hurdles, Osborne's victory in the high
jump at 6 feet 6 inches and Legen-
dre's new mark in the broad jump of,
25 feet 6 inches, there have also been
disappointments. An American vic-
tory had been counted upon in the
100 meters, but Abrahams, of Cam-
bridge University, upset the best cal-
culations.
This seems to have disturbed the
American coaches whose business it
is to get results. While admitting
the ability of Abrahams, they could

This beach is strictly for swimmers only, and is the finest
on Whitmore Lake. There are 10 and 20 foot diving docks
and the water varies in depth from 40 to 100 feet, making
diving -absolutely safe. Forty large lockers at the east end
of the dance hall provide adequate dressing rooms. It will,
however, be necessary for swimmers to bring their own suits
and towels. Old Carland Grove, across from the dance hall,
is open to campers, tourists and basket picnics, with good spring
water, dressing rooms for men and women, tables for a hundred
and fifty people, and parking space for 5,000 cars. A small
fee of 25c per car load is charged. Dancing at the pavilion
will continue for the balance of the summer on Wednesday,
Friday and Saturday evenings. The finest music available
will be furnished.
