FRIDAY, JULY 22, 1927
Yesterday morning The Daily
published its first controversial
campus opinion of the summer
session. The opinion expressed
therein differed materially with
the editorial policy of The Dailyl
which the communication sought ,l
to answer, nevertheless The Daily
welcomes most heartily this or
any other expression of opinion,
dissenting or otherwise, which
may exist among the students of
the campus.
Early this week three hundred pa-
triots, fighting in a cause they be-
lieved just, and for a cause which
they believed to be right, fell on a
battlefield against a far superior
fighting force. It would not be fitting
for the world to pass by without pay-
ing some tribute to these brave men
who gave their lives in a cause for
which patriots have ever given their
lives, and in this materialistic age
we are all too apt to overlook the
consummate heroism of this band.
They attacked a force of trained
fighting men, equipped with the most
deadly weapons that modern science
has as yet devised. They battled
against great odds for hours, and they
finally retreated only when three-
fourths of their number lay dead or
wounded on the field, and when death
dealing airplanes soared above. Such
bravery is rarely equalled in this sor-
did world of ours, and the brave
martyrs who died on that, field of
battle in a vain effort ot save their
country from foreign invasion can not
but incite the plaudits and the admi-
ration of all the world.
Of course there are some who will
say they are bandits for attempting
to expel an invasion of capital from
the realm of their homeland, and per-
haps the bandit allegation is true, but
what of it? It is only a narrow breach
from banditry to patriotism-the one
kills in the name of the minority and
the other in the name of the majority.
It is even possible that some day the
United States marines, if they ever
come to represent a minority will as-
sume the position of bandits, and
surely no one would go so far as to
say that the United States marines
could do wrong.
We do not sympathize with the
sabotage and arson and other depre-
dations of this band of patriots who
were killed, but of course all these
things are the essence of patriotism,
and we ourselves were encouraginge
the same measures not so very longE
ago, and cheering lustily at the znas-1
sacre of thousands of "the enemy
(as if there could be such a thing as
"the enemy"). Murder is the basis of
patriotism, according to our present
standards, and the band of patriotsc
who were just killed surely can nots
be criticised on that grounds. t
Then too there is the fact that thec
existing government of their own na-1
tion supported the murder of the pa-8
triots, but that merely makes theirs
Inartyrdom all the more glorious, for t
that government is apparently exist-
ing not by any popular right but be- t
cause It is supported by gigantic for- t
eign commercial interests. A life I

America has lost a great and ex-
ceptional diplomat. This generation,
perhaps, does not remember so clearly
the name of Henry White, who passed
away recently at his home in Lenox,
Massachusetts; but to the old school
of English statesmen who ran the
world from London in the last half
of the nineteenth century, and to the
fiery nations of Europe who felt his
leadership in the International Mor-
rocoan conference at Algeciras in
1906, and even as late as the Versailles
peace conference in 1918, Henry
White, the statesman and diplomat,
loomed large and ponderous indeed.
Rarely has the United States pro-
duced a man of the quality of Henry
White for our foreign service. Rare
indeed is the period which has a man
such as he to represent it at London,
Rome, and Paris, as White successive-
ly represented his country at those
three posts. Advancing years remov-
ed him from the panorama of public
life years ago, but the name which he
left in our annals will be cherished
At the time of the Paris Peace con-
ference in 1918 the former ambassador
probably knew more European diplo-
mats than any other living American.
He was admittedly a friend of the
Kaiser and the old regime in Germany,
yet President Wilson, recognizing the
abilities of the veteran statesman ap-
pointed him as a delegate in .spite of
this fact, and the manner in which he
acquitted himself was in no small
sense responsible for the measure of
success that the United States did
have at that meeting.
Wherever the situation was strained
or the conditions critical, there Henry
White could be depended upon. As
first secretary at the court of St.
James he developed a group of youn-
ger statesmen who later acquitted
themselves nobly in the service of
their country. As ambassador to Italy
at Rome he placed himself in such a
strategic position in European affairs
that he was able to assume a position
of unquestioned leadership in the con-
ference at Algeciras, and how well he
managed this business may be gath-
ered from the fact that though a war
seemed imminent when the delegates
convened, the nations of the continent
left the conference on speaking terms,
and the great conflict was postponed
almost eight years.
A year later he went to the post of
ambassador to France, and a year af-
ter his retirement, in 1910, he repre-
sented the United States at the pan-
American conference, .and was special
ambassador to Chile upon the cele-
bration of the nation's 100th anniver-
sary of independence. Truly America
in the death of Henry, ,White has lost
one of its truly great men, and the
development of more statesmen and
diplomats with the s agacious wisdom
and the masterful ex ecutive ability of
Henry White could naot but be an in-
estimable benefit to the nation at pres-
ent, engaged as it is in conferences
for the increase o f amaments and
coercive subjection of puny Central
American states.
The increasing p"oblem of the large
university is indicated in a recent
statement by the president of a Ken-
tucky institution, that "the unpre-
cedented popularity of American col-
lege education, whi ;h is now drawing9
850,000 young men and women to in-
stitutions of higher learning, is likely
to go on increasin ; for 25 years at
least." His words suggest perhaps

The dignity with which the Ameri-

king of Roumania is astonishing. We
presume that in the olden times chiv-

someone quoted the new monarch
publicly as in a headline like this:

of Selling in the bond business
T IS a disproven idea that bond selling is merely
a matter of making friends and using them as a re-
ceptive outlet for whatever issues come to hand. The
worth-while bond house does not want its bonds sold
that way. It trains its representatives to work more
When the house and the man representing it are
known for their carefulness in fitting the bond to the
investor, it builds confidence and subordinates sell-
ingto serving.
Men who represent Halsey, Stuart & Co. are
trained in this policy. It enables them to grow in the
bond business and to'"find a worth-while outlet for
their capacity and ambition.
College men should find out all they can about the
bond business before deciding for or against it as a vo-
cation. That will correct any erroneous ideas they
may have about it or their own fitness or lack of fit-
ness for it.
You will find accurate and helpful information on this
su jeet in apamphal we have prepared forcollege men.
