large sum in Itself, was pitiful when
compared with the; twenty-two bilt
lions spent for luxuries.
: "From these statistics," he said, "it
would appear that the country cares
more for chewing gum, cigars n
cigarettes, and cosmetics than it does
. Educators have seized upon this com
parison as a striking argument in
favor of the passage of the Towner
Sterling bill, now before congress,
creating a Department of Education,
with a Secretary in the President's
Cabinet. The biil appropriates a hun
dred million dollars to be spent amonK

bill for luxuries.
Dr. Tlnert drew attention to the
"lnslOur.us propaganda" spread by
'some agency' against the expenditure
of larKo sums by the government In
aid ol iduiatlon, and termed the
proper and wise use cf money In edu
cat'on a the salvation of the country
against many of the evils of Ignor
ance, intolerance, and 'fanaticism,
which monace Its prosperity.

Shipstead said, with Butler acting as
its attorney,, used eyery artifice and

Its books by the municipal authorities.

"This is not a personal matter,"
said Shipstead. "It Is not a political
