x TO INFLUENCE POLICIS
"U. S. AND SLAV EMPIRE SHOULD)
CO-OPERATE' SAYS PROF.
"Russia needs America, and Amer-
ica needs Russia. Both countries rea-
ize this and are striving for a closer
relationship. Russia exerts and will
continue to exert an influence on world
policies, and the United States should
co-operate with her," said Prof. C. L.
Meader of the general linguistics de-
partment yesterday in his lecture, "De-
mocracy in Russia."
In his remarks concerning the real
democracy in Russia, Professor Mead-
er said: "The zemstvos, or elective
township assemblies, are the most ful-
ly organized and most effective of all
the Russian organizations. Their
wide range of activities includes the
levying of 'soldiers, the maintenance
of prisons and courthouses, roads,
medical and charitable institutions, a
mutual insurance bureau, fire depart-
ments, control of taxes and education,
and the development of agriculture,
industry, and trade.
"The peasant family is fundament-
ally a labor organization where each
member does his or her part," con-
tinued the speaker. "The village com-
munes have disappeared since the
passing of crtain laws in 1906. The
government felt that these were labor
unions and should be broken up.
"Contrary to general opinion, the
nobility is democratic," said Professor
Meader. "It does not possess a dis-
tinct class conscience. This is in a
large measure due to the heterogene-
ous origin of its members, for the
nobility contains Muscovites, Lithuan-
ians, and Poles, as well as Slavs. A
few of the nobles are enormously rich,
but a greater part are poor.
"Realism, the most striking char-
acteristic of Russian literature, is but
a manifestation of democracy," added
Professor Meader. "The authors are
representative of every class in the
empire. Russian literature has been
closely identified with legislation, and
was largely instrumental in the eman-
cipation of the serfs in 1861.
"It is unlikely that any reversion to
the old regime will occur," said Pro-
fessor Meader in conclusion. "The
question is how radical the new gov-
ernment will be."
PROF. C. 0. DAVIS WRITES ON
SECONDARY SCHOOL EDUCATION
Traces Growth of the Present-Day
High School, Discussing
Prof. Calvin 0 Davis of the educa-
tion department is the author of a
book entitled "Pblic Secondary Edu-
cation" recently published by the
Rand, McNally company.
This book treats of the history of
public secondary education in the
United States, dwelling particularly
upon the work done in Michigan along
these lines. In connection with the
early development of education in this
state there are chapters dealing with
early branches in the University of
Michigan, the academy movement, and
the rise and development of the pres-
ent day high school. The legal, social,
and educational problems which gave
impetus to the growth of the latter
institution, and affected its character
are discussed at some length.
At the request of Prof. C. H. Judd of
the University of Chicago, who recent-
ly conducted a school survey in Grand
Rapids, Professor Davis took charge
of the work in all grades above thE
sixth grade, and his findings are cor
tained in the portion of the school
survey published which is devoted to
the secondary schools. Prof. Charles
S. Berry of the education department
is the author of the report on defec-
tive and exceptional students which
also appears in this publication.

ance sent to the Michigan division of
the Military Training Camps associa-
tion from Wharton Clay, executive
secretary, in Washington.
Food Control Secretary Resigns:

Washington, May 3.-France and
America have sworn on the grave of
George Washington, on the death beds
of soldiers killed in the present war,
and on the graves of all European bat-
tlefields to do .a republic's duty of
bringing other countries to independ-

A free translation of his speech by
Representative Medill McCormick is,
"Never until my dying day shall I
forget the acclamations of the Ameri-
can people. If I do not thank you
adequately it is not because our grati-
tude is lacking, but because the words
with which to express it are insuf-
ficient. We feel that your sympathy

and your enthusiastic assistance comes
not only from your heart, but from the
jealousy which you have for your
honor. We have seen that you fullfil
not only the obligations of national
'honor but all at once we have seen
unfolded in its charming intimacy the
complexity of the American soul.
American Soul Is Paradox
"When one meets an American he
meets a practical man, living for the
soul the frankness and vivacity of a
affairs of his time, but at the same
time one discover in the American
new life, the strength which comes
from devotion to an ideal, and so, in
that American soul we have before us
the paradox of the combination of the
practical and the ideal.
"There is a parallel between your
cause and ours. You, like ourselves,
carry the mandate of a free people to
maintain certain ideals, to exchange
certain opinions regarding the tre-
mendous problems arising from the
war to the end that two nations may,
side by side, achieve equality, and lib-
erty. Opposed to us is an absolute
monarch who seeks to compel others
to do his will.
"Swear on Grave of Washington"
"If your national hero, George
Washington could rise from his grave
and behold today's war he would him-
self proclaim that after a nation has
created independence it is bound to
defend it before all the world, and not
only to maintain its independence, but
to create also independence for other
nations. We have sworn on the grave
of Washington to fight to the end, but
not only has it been sworn on the
grave of Washington, but also on the
graves of the uncounted soldiers who
have fallen in this war. It has also
been sworn on the death beds of those
who have died in the hospitals of Eu-
rope, and it has been sworn on the
cradles of the newly born. It has been
svorn by every lover of freedom from
the crade to the tomb. It has been

has calculated on greater wastage in

complished," declared Lord. Curzon,
mier ber of the war cabinet today at a

"The menace will not affect the ulti-

Lord Curzon declared compulsory

FLAT VIOLATION OF
Washington, May 3.--Speaker Clark
came forward as the leader of the fight
against the censorship clause in the
administration's spy bill when in de-
bate in the house this afternoon he
declared the clause to be a "flat viola-
tion of the constitution."
An agreement was reached to limit
debate on the section to four hours.
Speaker Clark opened the discussion.
"I believe the press censorship clause
in this bill to be a flat violation of
the constitution," he said. "The fact
that editors slander people, abuse them
like pickpockets and lie about them
for doing their plain duty-and I have
received as much as anybody of this
in the last 10 days-won't make me
vote for the proposition. The presi-
dent, I believe, will stick by his prom-
ise not to punish anyone for criticizing
the administration, but the president
would not have anything to do with
the enforcement in this act. That
would be left to some subordinate or
rather to a multitude of subordinates."
Representative Medill McCormick of
Chicago, in a statement today an-
nounced he would introduce an amend-
ment to limit the president's power to
suppress news and comment on
"enumerated war matters." "The cen-
sorship section is of most vital and
grave interest to all the people of the
United States," McCormick said. "For
example, I am told there is consider-
able, although not an overwhelming
amount of minor infectious diseases
among the navy recruits.
Attacks Navy Department System
"I hear, too, that Mr. Daniels let
bids for submarine chasers to brokers,
not shipbuilders, and that the brokers
have not been able to secure contracts
for construction or bond for the per-
formance of contracts which they have
made with Mr. Daniels. This section,
at request of the navy depart-
ment, could prohibit discussion of such
matters by congress."
