and more noticeable here as America
whirls on in a mad effort to uniform-
ity. This may be branded as the
greatest danger confronting American
democracy today. When a nation,
led by the exhortations of wild eyed
demagogues, teaches its youth that
its glory is infinitely more glorious
than an other; that its power is with-
out peer in the world; that its culture
has reached a peak of such absolute
pertection that its manifest movement
of fundamentalism and super-patriot-
ism constitutes a "crisis in the intel-
lectual history of this country." "What
was a cloud no bigger than a man's
hand when Charles Grant Miller began
his infamous attack upon histories
written by men who really knew the
facts," writes Professor Van Tyne to
the New York Times, "has become a
menacing storm, threatening truth
wherever it is found."
The point of attack is a two vol-
ume work' of American history which
came to the attentin of Professor
Van Tyne, sponsored by people whose
aim is to produce a standard history
of the United States, so that there will
be no difference of opinion as to our
past among the youth of the next
generation. Its chief qualification is
that it has received the sanction of
patriotic organizations; the American
Legion, the Boy Scouts of America,
the Colonial Sons and Daughters of
the American Revolution, the Daugh-
ters of the Confederacy, Knights of
Pythias, the National Security league,
the Confederate Veterans, and hal
has also receivpd the endorsement
and critical aid of the Order of the
Elks and other fraternal orders. It
was written under the' direction of 12
pseudo-historians by a proessor of
English and is sent out' over the na-
tion with the hope of universal adop-
tion because it is guaranteed not to
destroy the ideals of the younger
Opposition to the chair of philoso-
phy, which was once the storm'n center
in universities, seems to have shifted,
at least in this present day in Amer-
ica, to the chair of history, and espe-
cially American history, where the
truth often hurts, is particularly apt
to be obnoxious. More polemics of
wild eyed demagogues have been di-
rected against this department of
learning than any ther, because cer-
tain people cling to traditions which
paint America in colors unrivalled in
the world, and throttle all expres.
sions which tread upon their toes.
So we see the spectacle today of
organizations whose purposes should
be above such, endorsing a history
written by an English professor. It
is history, written through a medium
which distorts the truth, and turns it
to political ends. In. his letter, Pro-
fessor Van Tyne declares that though
it has certain unexpected virtues,
it is "so maudlin and sentimental
about 'our' virtues and 'our' super-
iority over the rest of the world, that
if universally used, 'our' next genera-
tion would behave like an insufferable
cad toward the rest of thegworld."
History which has no Asgard for the
truth, history, written for the express
purpose of arousing those feelings of
pristine enthusiasm which people call
patriotiotism, is not history. But op-
position will always go on. "That
which was a cloud no bigger than a
man's hand when Charles Grant Mill-
er began his infamous attack upon
histories written by men who really
knew the facts has become a menac-
ing storm, threatening truth wher-
ever it is found."
Tle plan represents one nore en
deavor to uniformity, and .all whO
have a point of view broad enough to
see the danger should unite in pre
venting its ultimate triumph. The

Boy, Page Dan Beard
T~ere are personal things and
things, and sometimes I sense a lack
of comity in the ranks of the students
in regard to these sacred things of
hearth and home. This qualifies me
for rebuke: In regard to these things
so inconsiderably treated, here's one.
I raised a beard-well, I initiated one
for a week. Therie were reasons: no
money, and a hard razor irritates my
face, and a soft one splinters my
chin, and a straight one hurts my
conscience. Immediately after 1
started it I observed looks of ask-
ance and words of askance. Some-
one said it was because the thermo-
mieter had dropped. It had. Another
one insinuated Secret Service and I
swear .I hadn't been near Martha
Cook, and right after that I heard a
girl say "he's getting in character,"'
which was rathercruel, seeing that
she didn't know me. In my classes
everyone smirked and when outside
somebody played the automatic grass
cutter they smirked out loud, hard.
I stubbed my feelings then and there
and walked limping from the room.

Y our Own Lamp of Allat
If you would have it, you may have your own "Lamp of Aladdin,"
which, when you rub it will produce for you many of the things in life you
most desire. We do not mean such a lamp as his. We have reference to
something far less mysterious and awe-inspiring. But in its capacity to
produce material things for you it is far more wonderful than Aladdin's, for
it will give you many things which he, in his time, could not have thought of.
We have reference to savings, in whatever manner accumulated.
from day to day and week to week you lay aside a part of whatever you
make, bye and bye the time will come when for the asking you can have the
things you desire.
It will not bring you everything. It will not buy

in gaining all of them, if used rightly.
y health and happiness
But it will aid you
Little need to tell you of the advantages of laying by something for the
future. If you but think a moment you will recall living examples which
prove the truth of what we say. Count these men you know whom you
consider most successful.
How many of them are not thrifty?
There is no necessary relationship between men who are thrifty and
saving and the fact that they are loved, admired and respected in their
community, but the two usually go together. In a material sense it is
different. They have the things they want because they have the means
to buy them.
They have the means because they have not squandered all.
And what price all this? Very little indeed. The habit of saving,
once determined upon, is easily acquired. Shortly it becomes a genuine
habit, as natural as any other habit you acquire. It demands only the effort
required to live on a little less than you make.
The cost is small, the reward is great.
A good time to begin saving is
