LAWYERS TO DISCUSS WAR AID
State Bar Association Will Meet In
Kansas City This Month.
By Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, 3Io., Sept. 17. How
the lawyers of Missouri may assist the
government In prosecuting the war
against Germany will be-one of thej
principal subjects of discussion at the
annual convention of the Missouri
State Bar Association here September
27 to 29. Proposed legal reforms, es
pecially revision of the state code also
will be discussed.
That the lawyers of the state al
ready are playing their part in the
war was declared by association of
ficials, who announced that more than
150 members will not attend the con

Many young men entering high
school of college this month will be
urged by parents and friends to be
sure and take "something practical."
Why, they will ask, should anybody
study Latin when he isn't going to
use it? Or mathematics? Or physics?
says the Kansas City Star.
Those questions are all very well
K the word "use" is given a wide
enough meaning. Our job is living,
and we use very many things In liv
ing that may not help us directly to
earn money. Gladstone is usually ac
counted a successful man. He was a
fine Greek scholar. The Greek never
helped him in framing a British
budget. But he got such satisfaction
out of it that he probably counted It

Mr. Balfour, who has been a prime
minister of England, writes books on
philosophy. President Wilson studied
many subjects that have been of no
"practical" use to him, but he urges
young men to get a college education
it possible. Colonel Rposevelt has
written on the Icelandic sagas. Dr.
Richard Cabot, a highly successful
Boston physician, is a specialist in
philosophy as well as in music And
so the list might be indefinitely ex
tended. These names are cited, not to prove
that a liberal education was the cause
of success, but to indicate that men
whoso opinion is worth something
have found a wide variety of studies
valuable to them in the business of
Teachers insist that the mental
training furnished by these studies is
important A fierce discussion is
raging around that point at present,
and it is not here considered. But it
certainly is true that a young man
ought not to go through high school
or college without getting some idea
of the important departments of hu
man activity, the foundations on
which civilization rests.
The modern world is built to a con
siderable extent on science and its
achievements. So an educated man
ought to have a notion of the meth
ods of science, of physics or chem
istry or biology or botany. Mathemat
ics has been a great factor in the
-world, and mathematical methods are
important. So he should become fa
miliar if possible with the theory of
some branch of higher mathematics.
An understanding of English Is much
helped by familiarity with its mother
tongue. The study of Latin gives an
insight into the principles of language
and its development that can hardly
be obtained In any other way. The
same considerations apply to history
and economics and literature and mu
