GOING RATH LH FAIL
Th? American pr?s? has been almost
unanimous in lt? critic-lam of former
Secrptsry of State Bryan for reign
ing his cabinet position because of a
difference with the president concern
ing the n (tutA of the United States* re
joinder to the German reply to the
note on the Kinking of the Lusitania.
While sume of these criticisms have
been rather severe, none coming to
our attention have gone so far as one
which brands Mr. Bryan a traitor,
having betrayed the confidence of the
president and divulged secrets of the
cabinet. While v.e agree that the
former secretary showed mighty bad
taste In charging that an eleventh
hour change had been made In the
tone of the note to Germany and has
acted unwisely in talking KO much
siter titepplng down and out of tho
cabinet, we hesitate lo think of Mr.
Bryan as a traitor. Or at any rate, lt
doesn't Sound very nice to speak of
him as such.
That's an ugly word, and there aro
so many more in (he English language
that would have been severe enough
be not near KO full of venom. In short,
it leaves a bad taste In one's mouth
to read of the former secretary of
state being spoken of as a traitor.
A paper that does this, we think, week
ens its position by (he bitterness to
which lt resorts. We ?sre?; that Mr.
Bryan made a serious blunder and ls
deserving of a good blt of the cenouro
he Is getting for IIIB action, but we
give him credit for being sincere.
Treachery ls never sincere. The trai
tor is sincere neither to his former in
terests, himself nor his new interests.
COLLEGE GIRLS' CHARACTER.
Katherine B. Davis, commissioner
of correction in New York city, says
that In her fifteen years' experience in
handling female delinquents, "she has
never found, a college girl among
H can be argued pleuaibly that the
college has little to do with it, that
college girls are a special social
group, carefully selected, and not like
ly to go wrong whether ?hey attend
college or not. They generally come
from "good families" and their char
acters presumably have been shaped
in an environment of sound morals
and wholesome thrift.
But of course that isn't the whole
story. Evreybody who knows any
thing about colleges, and particularly
women's colleges, knows that they
exert a qowerful influence in building
character. The* girl enters college
with a set or mor?is ready made for
her and blindly accepted; her four
years' course ls a thinking and build
ing process; she leaves with sn in
telligent acceptance of principles that
moat women merely take for granted.
She hss thought ber way through
things. She knows why right is right
and wrong is wrong. Her chsraoter
ls established on a far Armer founda
tion than that of her less cultivated
sisters. . * ; ,
Added to this, she hss gained Intel
lectual interests and resources and as
sociation that lift her above tempta
tions that come to the Idle and shal
low-minded. And In her equipment
for earning a living, she hss a power
ful economic bulwark against lower
ing her moral standards.
I It is much;the sams with male stu
dents.. When a college man wanders
from the straight path, lt ls always a
matter of surprise and reproach. "He
Should have known better." The
higher education, In spite of the "un
settling effects" that, pious folk used
to fear, is recognised today as a potent

Little Arbitration Talk.
Washington Correspondence of the
New York Evening Post: It can also
bo said on the best of authority the.t
If Mr. Bryan was Insistent unon an
arbitration cf the issues with Germany
aa the price of his remaining in thc
cabinet he confined his arguments also
entirely to the president personally.
Ma cabinet colleagues say that arbi
tration ns a way out was not discussed
two minuten, ail told, at the two cab
inet meetings, which considered the
note. It is thought possible that Mr.
Bryan wan convinced by what waa
said on other suggestions that the
cabinet would not accept his viewB.
and. following his speech in cabinet
against the not5 of May 13. he con
cluded to remain silent on the subject
except to convey his views privately
to the president.
Mr. Bryan's Biggest Blander.
Baltimore Sun: Mr. Bryan has made
many and grievous blunders in his
long public career; he has shown his
isck of good taste on many occasions,

heights-or depths-of mischievous.
Inexcusable and self-righteous dema
What Brran Failed to See.
Springfield Republican: Mr. Bryan's
general attitude, indeed, is destructive
of the established rights of neutrals in
favor of the claims of belligerents to
do as cthey please. The essence of neu
trality is to Insist on neutral rights.
If certain neutral right? are suren
dered for the benefit of one side in a
war, that very act becomes flagrant

than for any other nation an epoch

At present our submarine arm is
weak. But in the light of the lessons
of Germany's operation it may be hop
ed that it will be progressively Im
proved and strengthened through the
skill of .our experts and the awakened

Now that the submarine ai* ls so

Notwithstanding the Ohio legislature

it ls a paragon ot virtue compared

the members of the legislature should

bill to raise the legislators' salary
