I PLEA FOR LEADERS / t Higher Character and Learn 1 ing Needed, National U Class Told by Justice Hatfield. —¥ America’s Federal. State and com munity governments are in trouble to day because of the moral cowardice and incapabilities of their “so-called lead ers.” Justice Charles S. Hatfield of the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals declared last night at National University's 63d annual con vocation in Memorial Continental Hall, i Addressing the graduate recipients of 3S4 degrees In courses on the purposes cf a university, Justice Hatfield as serted that the university undertakes to develop a mentality “capable of as saying the facts, spurious and real, which life is sure to present." •This.” Justice Hatfield explained, •'requires the ability to think and to j reason. It also requires the power to | weigh all alleged facts. With the ability to think and reason, one learns to | i doubt and at the same time learns to ; govern and direct that doubt.” In addition. Justice Hatfield con tinued, the university has for its pur pose the development of mental honesty and moral courage. "Perhaps much of the trouble In which our governments of America— Federal. State and local—find them selves involved today," the Jurist as serted. "is due to the failure of the so called leaders in private and public life to measure up to the standards fixed by the university. Lark of Capabilities. "Some are mentally incapable of thinking and of assaying the facts of life. In the face of new facts they are confused and bewildered. They accept j fallacy for wisdom and reject wisdom for fallacy. "Others possessing the ability to learn the truth are lacking in mental honesty and in moral courage. In the latter group those who have honest convic tions are either unwilling or afraid to stand by them. In the face of emer gency they become timid, not daring to express their honest opinions nor to stand by their honest convictions. "Some, obsessed with a mania for agitating the emotions of the shallow, who themselves are confused and be wildered by facts which they do not comprehend, are false to themselves and to those whom they represent and a challenge to the future of this re public." Again, quoting Lord Bryce to the effect that "no form of government needs great leaders so much as a de mocracy,” Justice Hatfield contended that "never in the history of this coun try has leadership been of greater im portance than at this very hour." It is needed in every walk of life, he said in finance, in Industry and in state craft. "Democracy.” the Federal jurist de clared. "in America is facing a chal lenge greater than ever before. This is no time to have patience with the demagogue He is the greatest of all foes to an enduring America. With leaders possessing the ability to think and to ascertain the facts, combined with the mental honesty and moral courage. America can face the challenge Without fear.” Justice Luhring Honored. The exercises at which Justice Hat field spoke was attended by one of the largest groups of brilliant legal minds ever to witness a college graduation. Virtually the entire membership of the District of Columbia Supreme Court occupied places on the stage in salute to Justice Oscar R. Luhring, a member of that court, who was. awarded one of three honorary degrees of doctor of laws. The honor was accorded Judge Luhring, a member of National's law faculty, "for distinguished services in the administration of justice and to the legal profession.” The other two honorary doctorates wrere conferred upon Justice D. Law rence Oroner of the District of Colum bia Court of Appeals, “for eminent legal scholarship and contributions to the science of laws," and Crandal Mackey, former commonwealth's attorney for Arlington Countv, Va„ and a member of National's Board of Trustees since 1904. "for distinguished services in the enforcement of law and to the cause of legal education.” Judge Groner also is on National's law faculty. The exercises, which were presided over by Dr. Hayden Johnson, chancellor of National University, were opened with the invocation by Rev. Dr. William Jackson Morton, rector of Christ Church, Alexandria, Va. Leo Speer, vice president of the graduating class, delivered the valedictory.

N. W. National 0091 WE DELIVER TO CITY AND Sl'Bl'RBS A Timely Suggestion to the FOR the past six years, tires have been steadily dropping in price at periodic intervals. No one familiar with general economic condi tions and production costs could consistently recommend buying tires in advance of current needs as being desirable. But now we have reached the point where crude rubber has declined from $1.20 a pound in 1925 —an artificially high price—to less than 3c a pound, which is far less than it costs to produce. Cotton, too, has dropped from more than 20c a pound to around 5c a pound, which also is less than its cost of production. These—rubber and cotton—are the two main materials entering into the construction of pneumatic tires. A STEADY reduction in tire prices has been brought about almost entirely by the drastic decline in price of these two basic raw materials. So in buying your tires now you get the benefit of these two items at less than cost of production, and the benefit also of price reductions made to give every possible induce ment to stimulate buying for the purpose of keeping labor in the tire factories employed. It must be evident, therefore, that tire prices have reached bottom and that you can wisely and profitably replace such tires as are worn to a point where they will soon become unsafe, and that also you can anticipate your future requirements to some extent and know you are making a good investment. With .the need of promoting employment wherever possible, and the imminence of a substantial revenue tax on tires, I believe that you will be benefiting yourselves and the country at large by making your tire THE GOODYEAR TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY, INC.
