THE PRICE OF COAL
(The Detroit News)
It would be interesting to know to
what.extent the United Mine Workers
of America and the owners and oper-
ators of the coal mines are depending
on the outcome of the situation in
England to govern their policies here.
.A few years ago when there was a
strike in the British mines a sudden
demand for American coal arose in
Europe. If the British miners strike
this fall, thereby sending up the
price of British coal, there will doubt-
less be heavy orders of American coal
from abroad. American mine opera-
tors will want to profit by this de-
mand, which will almost cer-
tainly send prices bounding upward,
chiefly the prices of the best grade of
bituminos. Perhaps the American
operators are hoping for a British
strike and even counting on it, since
it would play into their hands by
boostift prices and profits. Perhaps
the United Mine Workers are count-
ing on it also as a means of forcing
the operators, who will want their
mines working at full production. to
pay the scale of Wages they are de-
This would be a matter wth which
President Coolidge should have power
to deal. The people of the United
States ought to be protected against a
rising coal market due to a sudden
foreign demand. They should be as-
sured a full supply of coal at a
reasonable price before the extra de-
mand from abroad could be filled. But
the President has no power either to
fix prices 'in an emergency, or to de-
clare an embargo. If the British
mines are tied upAmerican operators
and miners stand, to profit, and the
American consumer to lose, because
of the failure of Congress to foresee
that a situation which has already
occurred can happen again.
SCIENCE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS
(The New York Times)
The State Department of Education
has just issued a syllabus in general
science for pupils studying that sub-
ject, to take the place of the first-
year biology in the high school. -It
is not stated whether the course in
general science is "prescribed" or is
only optional. At any rate, entrance
has been made and there will be an
opportunity to demonstrate the rela-
tive value of a course bringing into
view the field of science as a whole
rather than one compelling immature
students - to begin with an intensive
laboratory course in one of the sci-
.nSuch a comprehensive view of man
in relationship to his environment t
is the obvious desire of some, afraid
of scientific reasoning, to shut away
from children and youth. "And what
is scientific reasoning? asked an as-
sociate of Pasteur. His answer, Fe-
cently quoted in tribute to a great
scientist and teacher, the late Prof.
Henry, M Thomas of Johns Hop-
kins hospital, was, "Simply this:
"reasoning exercised with the Salu-
fear of self-deceit and the firm
resolve to avoid it." It cannot be
:ha we are to a:oid deceiving our-
s-lvas in our own thinking and then
try to deceive those whom we are to
tMach to think for themselves. The
general science course has among its
announced aims that of training th
student in the use of "the scientific
method," and that of fostering in the
pupil" a confidence and belief in the
knowledge he gains by the use of
the scientific methods." The latter
training in the use of this method has
the arnounced further and moral pur-
pose of influencing the daily conduct
of the pupil thorugh theforniiation of
The syllabus has nothing to say
specifically about evolution, but if a
pupil follows it under the guidance of
a competent teacher, firm in the re-
solve to avoid self-deceit, he is bound
to come through with a consciousness
of -the immanence of some ordering
mind in an evolving creation through
which science,. moving slowly. "creep-
ing on from point to point," finds one
"increasing purpose" still running.
It is only a coward mind that will fear,
to follow where it leads.
Five years ago Coach Yost express-

I ASTED ROLLV
There are times when we have some
patience, and there are other times
when we control our temper with a
perhaps visible but none the less ef-
fective demonstration of will power,
but there are limits.
A few days ago we commented on
gigglers in moving picture theaters.
We even went so far as to recommend
their execution. We now feel that
hanging is too good for them. It hap-
pened Sunday. We were at the Arc
(Adv.) seeing the current perform-
ance there (which is really quite
good). Olaf the Great was with us,
having returned from his northern
trip. We were enjoying the show
when from behind came a burst of
giggles. We looked around and be-
held this time not three, but many
gigglers-fully half a row of them.
We spoke of them loudly to Olaf.
It did no good. Nothing will do any
good--nothing but shooting or sim-
ilar lead-poisoning. But we're pack-
ing a gun-be warned, gigglers.
Una Form has sent in another com-
munication in the form of a paragrap
We are evidently-intended to insert it
as though we knew who Una is and
had just heard her make the state-
ment. We do not know Una. There
are times When we might have wish-
ed we did, but-oh, well-.
The paragraph follows: "Una Form

questions the sincerity' of her views.

ed, true, from recent experience, but
she still believes the Michigan man a

There is an element of cowardice
in the manner of Una's letters. She
has never yet included her address or
telephone number. We guarantee not
to publish it when received, and Peat
Bog feels quite sure that he can con-
vince her of the error of her thoughts.
And Una, he's big and tall and hand-
some and comes from the great out-
doors 'where, etc.
I want to know just why they had
to get a probation officer to take
charge of Martha Cook. I've only been
around a little, and I've heard
"things" that make me wonder. Tell
Pug, you have asked us something.
yes, indeed you have. We hesitate to
reply, but just- send us a self-ad-
dressed stamped envelope, and we will
reply confidentially to your query. We
feel that you are old enough to know.
It all seems very unkind. For 20
years the newspapers have been stick-
ing thorns in a man's path, an' then
just as soon as he kicks off they start
"ining competition with each other
to see who can pile the most roses

Somebody started the rumor the

They were mistaken, but we can un-
