THE GARDEN I SIAND TUESDAY, DEC. 19, 1922
THE GARDEN Issued Eyery Tuesday ISLAND kennetii c. uorncit - Managing Editor TUESDAY DEO. lit, 1022 WHY NOT MK. FOKD (From Christian Science Monitor) Senator Newberry, having resigned in the face of a volume of popular criticism that could not possibly be ignored, the duly devolves upon the governor of Micigan to appoint a successor to serve until the election of 1!24. Michigan politicians are discussing the names of many eminent citizens of that state who are admirably qualified to receive this appointment, and to serve to the ?ener al public satisfaction. Among those mention ed are President Burton of the University of Michigan, whose notable achievement in the development of that great institution of learning have been watched with interest and hijili approval by its large lu-dy of alum ni throughout the United States; Mr. William Aiden Smith, a former United St.ttes Senator from Michigan, whose service, if not brilli ant, was at least creditable and always mark ed by a high order of public spirit; and May or James Couzens, of Detroit, a man of very large means, who has given his life and no small part of his fortune to the public ser vice, and who is conducting in the city of which he is the mayor an experiment in the municipal operation of street railways, and in the extension of other municipal functions which is attracting very wide attention. Anyone of these gentlemen possesses qualities which might well justify his ap pointment to the Senate, but curiously enough no sense of justice seems to have impelled anyone in Michigan to make the suggestion that the man who was defeated by the lav ish use of money in support of Mr. Newber ry should be given the seat which is now vacated. Why is there no suggestion of Mr. Henry Ford? It may be argued that not merely was Mr. Ford defeated in the election which has caused so much controversy, but that the Democratic party, whose candidate he was, was likewise defeated, and that no Democrat should be appointed as Mr. Newberry's suc cessor. 'The answer to this is sufficiently clear, namely, that the election in question was one in which party lines were broken down at every point, and that Mr. Ford him self is far from being regarded as an avowed partisan Democrat. Many considerations would seem to unite to make it the part of fair play for the governor of Michigan to consider the propriety of appointing to the seat which Mr. Newberry has vacated, the man who was deprived of that seat by cam paign methods which have been so generally condemned. Moreover, as the term thus to be filled is but a short one whether the ex traordinary qualities which have made Mr. Ford a leading and an admirable figure in the industrial world could be made of equal value in the service of the nation. THAT IS OUT What the average man wants for his Christmas is to see turkeys priced so low that he can't really afford to buy roast beef. It's got so nowadays that we spend about six months getting ready for the holidays and six mouths recovering from them. If they're making moving pictures in Russia now they probably call them "commo tion pictures.'' Some fellows do not hesitate about break ing a promise because its so easy to make another one. There's this about the ex-kaiser's new wife she won't have any trouble keeping him home. Every married man is the head of his house at least once a month and that's when the bills come due. Maybe the reason that fat men are good riatured is because good nu hired men are always fat. We see in a New York paper where a detective of that city is bragging about the crooks he has caught. 15ut look at the crowd lie has to pick from. The hunter who says he is going to bring you a couple of pheasants next time he goes hunting is a cousin to the fellow who is always promising to come around and take vou for a nice auto ride. ' DON'T MAKE IT WOHSE The Japanese language school question in Hawaii has been for the past several years a troublesome issue between Ameri cans and Japanese. It has become more and more serious. While this is principalry due to the general trend of affairs, overempha sized and unnecessary misapprehension and misunderstanding on the part of Americans and lack of foresight and inadequate provi sion on the part of the Japanese to meet the situation are. contributory causes which, ag grivated the situation. The issue seems to have become a question of sentiment, against which we should guard ourselves. The desire of the Japanese is to stop locking horns over the Japanese school ques tion. Opposition to the language school reg ulations which have been signed by the gov ernor, in the form of a lest case, would not only precipitate a legal ctwitroversy, Amer ican versus Japanese, but would alienate the feelings between the two peoples, affecting almost every mailer in which they are con cerned. In view of this fact and of the nature of the question and in consideration of the situation, we have been opposed to litiga tiou from the very beginniug, repeatedly ex pressing ourselves to this effect. Enforcement of the new regulations be ginning January 1, l!)2:j, which is the mid dle of the school term, may cause difficulties. It may be unbearable, sentimentally, to see language school children drop their studies. There is sympathy for them. The somewhat antagonistic stand of Japanese parents, many of whom were against litigation at first, comes, in our opinion, from this sympathy for their children. And it is not our iuten tion to force them to be quiet. However, there is a point which we must consider in this connection, and that is that the action of Japanese made it ne cessary for the governor to sign the regula tions. While no good can come from crying over spilt milk, it is a fact that the irrespon sible act and blunder of the officials of the Japanese Society of Hawaii, existing as a representative organization of Japanese resi dents here, have caused the present mess. We vigorously protested against the officials of the society. But all is over now. We should, however, be cautious not to be misled by a few agitators and worse confound the ques tion. The statement of the conservative men of the Japanese community against litiga tion, for the consideration of others, is most timely. These men are not all in favor of reducing the course of study in the language schools. Their opinion was divided on the scope and time of application 'of the regula tions. But, knowing that a legal contest, ir respective of victory or defeat, would prove detrimental to the general interest, they de cided 1o make a public statement of their conviction. . We hope that the parents' association which met last night, realizing its responsi bility and the evil effects of litigation not only on school children but on the Japanese residents, will take a calm stand and reject the proposal of a certain faction to test the case.
