ichigani Welcomes A
Ntw Undertaking .
!F, one of the new conferences meeting at the
Summer Sesion of the University, we welcome
this year the first Conference of Teachers of In-
terniational Lawn. This ambitious undertaking,
conceived by Dr. James Brown Scott and spon-
sored by the Carnegie Endowment for Interna-
tinal Peace, adds a great deal to the already
&kellent brogram of outside lectures for stu-
dents.
The tnivrsity is indeed honored that the En-
dowment should have chosen Ann Arbor as the
mneeting place for this Conference. And we are
assured tht if the Conference is successful.
which it cannot help but be, it is but the frt of
lwannual n'cetingr which will be held in Ann Arn
boci. The enthusiasm of both the teachers and
thb studetns in this course insures its success.
The teaching of inernational law has become
an important subject in the last decade, both in
its application to war and peace. With the aims
6 nd objects of this Confercnce in mind, this field
of instru~ction is to have the same sort of inter-
change of ideas, opinions of experts, and ad-
vgrned instruction as other fields now enjoy. We
wish the participants in this first conference su-
ass , anid hope they will return to Ann Arbor
again next summler, bringing to all students a
IA 'better understanding of the law of nations.
The Bo'ns Army.0
WkC1hile Secretary Ogden Mills announces a tw
billion dollar deicit for the pat fiscal year, we
read that tbe American Legion members arc
pushing their campaign drive for more members
for their Washington bonus encampment. They
expect Congress, which adjourns shortly, to give
them some two billion dollars in immediate pay-
mrent of their adjusted compensation certificates
When the American Legion met in convention
t Detroit a year ago, one of the resolutions i
passed, at the earnest request of President Hoo-
ver, was one declining to ask for another bonus
payment. The importance of this matter to the
financial program of the administration was evi-
det in the fact that the President made a spe-
cial trip to Detroit to address the convention or
the subject.
One of the evils of the dole is seen in this pres-
ent movement. Many Legionnaires have discov-
ered that while they may have trouble getting
food and shelter at home, the government is
providing it free of charge at Washington. S
the best thing the unemployed members ca

think of doing is to go to the capital for a while
That this can, at present, be the only object of
the movemeni is apparent from the fact that
their measures can not be brought up again ir
the present Congress, and that after adjourn-
ment, the legislature will presumably not meet
again until December. That is, unless the Lame
Duck amendment is ratified before this fall.
The bonus ar-my might better take advantage
of the opportunity offered it for loans to return
home and obtain employment. In Detroit, a
wrecker took over 100 men from the forces head-
ed for Washington last week. But experience in
other countries, as well as here at home, has
shown that men once accustomed to charity dole
become less inclined to seek work when they
can live for nothing.
The demands of the bonus army have been re-
f'used by Congress, and should be refused again
at the next session. Another "raid" on the treas-
ury of this sort merely establishes a priviliged
class at the expense of all the others. This fact
has been recognized by the legislature, although
to cater to popular demand the House passed the
buck to the Senate on the last measure. What
the result of such payments would be on the
treasury is shon in the balance sheet of the
;past year,
