JOY OVER BRANDEIS' RETIRE
MENT. Mellen, ex-president of the
wrecked New Haven railroad system,
is enthusiastic over the nomination of
Brandeis to the U. S. supreme bench.
"Even if he has been a radical," de
clares Mellen, "he is sure to become
a conservative after he is sworn into
We don't believe that Brandeis
would become a conservative if sworn
into Paradise itself. But the big busi
ness fellows are right in feeling jolly
over his being put where he can be
be buried by a vote of 8 to 1, or there
abouts. Louis surely was a thorn in
their tripes as a free-lance.
REASON FOR IT. Washington
dispatches declare that "President
Wilson has astonished his friends by
a sudden change of front," in that
much of his so-called anti-German,
or more properly anti-hyphen, predi
lection has apparently been dispelled
by his western trip.
Why shouldn't it be so?
If a warrior bold did buckle on his
armor and sally forth to do battle
with those he had been long told
were his arch enemies, only to be re
ceived and welcomed as a friend and
comrade, it would truly be unnatural
if he did not show a "change of
front," aye, a decided one.
President Wilson's reception by the
German element wherever he jour
neyed on his speech making trip, par-,
ticularly in Milwaukee, a German-.
American stronghold, was so genu-t
inely demonstrative and wholly pa-r
triotic as to go a long way towards
quieting the uneasiness in the presi-,
dent's breast as well as in that of all ?
true Americans. It was .conclusive ,
evidence to the unbiased man that,
though our citizens of German de
scent may love their Fatherland, yetj
they are just as ready to defend their
adppted country from aggression by
Germany as by Japan or any other
There are a good many anti-German
agitators who might well follow
President Wilson in his "change of
front" for the good of all America.
Only a fool never changes his point
