Such Ideals prove an Injustice to the
students themselves and to the great
producing public which educates them.
Obsessed with the Idea that education
is but the means of making money and
to use It In any other way is to under
value it, they lose si'ght of the manifold
other values and underrate the value
of labor. A sheepskin thus proves a
barrier to an honest job, -but may land
a place where the pay is fairly good
but out of proportion With the service
rendered. The ipublic is then done an
injustice by having a parasite which
it paid to educte, psing his education
to extract an easy living without a
commensurate return of service.
Education will prove no panacea for
Bolshevism so long as financial gain Is
its prime motive. Bolshevisn Is large
ly a fight of the uneducated against
