School Board Conferred With.
Dr. Claxton, W. T. Lopp. chief of
the Alaska division of tho Bureau of
Education, and W. G. Beattie, super
intendent of government schools In,
Southeastern Alaska, arrived today
from Ketchikan, on tho Alameda.
They have been to Metlakahtla. on
a mission to induce the Rev. Father
William Duncan, aged missionary, to
peaceable relinquish his village to
News that Dr. Claxton and his par
ty would be in Juneau for two days
this week was received in a letter
from Mr. Beattie to W. W. Casey, a
member of the local school board. In
his letter Mr. -Beattie said: "He is
anxious to meet the school boards
of the various towns. He is a strong
speaker and would be willing to ad
dress a popular meeting along lines
of education. It is his duty as com
missioner of education of the United
States to advise and counsel with the
school authorities of the various
states and cities of the country oh
all matters of this nature. Dr. Clax
ton spoke Sunday night in Ketchi
kan. at Red Men's Hall, at the re
quest of business and professional
men. The mayor presided at the
meeting and the churches gave up
their evening services in order that
their congregations might be present.
"No one who has read the history
of the past will deny that when an
individual or a nation is ready and
prepared for something, that some
thing will come. To a heightened
state of preparedness may be attri4
buted the present world war."
So says Dr. P. P. Claxton. United
States commissioner of education,
who is in Alaska on official business.
His recent speech in Seattle on the
subject: "Lessons America may
learn from the War in Europe." il
lustrated his views.
"I am not one of these men who
demand peace at any price," said Dr.
Claxton. "But I do believe that with
a system of education we can do
away with war. The nations of Eur
ope^ for instance* since August 1,
have expended eighteen billion dol
lars in this great conflict. Is there
not some manner that they may pay
eighteen billion dollars and prevent
Valuation of Italy
"The valuation of the little king
dom of Italy?all its lands, its build
ings, its railroads, farms and real es
tate, the wealth of a country which
has grown for 3,000 years, is but twen
ty billions of dollars. If Italy had
sunk completely beneath the sea. the
loss to the world would not have been
much more than one year's warfare.
And when I say that the war 1ms cost
eighteen billion dollars, I do not
mean the loss of property, the loss of
cities burned, the loss of life which
might produce vast sums, nor the
loss occasioned by having 20,000,000
men under arms and away from pro
ductive work?these are not includ
ed. Eighteen billion dollars is but
the cost of running the war. Statis
ticians and those who know, tell us
that if the war continues another
year the cost will increase from 25
to 50 per cent.

was less talk among the Europeans
of war than there was in this coun

Germany had between 700.000 and 800

France had between 600.000 and '700,

largest navy in all the world. The
mental attitude of every country's
leaders was centered on war and its
Present War Came Rapidly
"The present war came moye rapid
ly than any in the history of the en
tire world. What has happened in
Europe teaches us that it is impossi
ble to prepare for tho invasion of
other countries, without those coun
tries invading. Rome was one of the
first examples of this fact Another
lesson which is taught lies in- the
fact that war is not prevented by
making it either more costly or more
dangerous with the modern machines
of death. England has not yet used
conscription, and yet moro than 4,
000,000 men are enlisted under her
colors, though all of them are not
at the front. Making war costly has

dent of business men when their pas- 1

"With the money the United States .
spent last year in its preparation for (
war. wonders could have been ac- (
complished. In schooling, we could
have established a great national uni
versity, with an endowment of $10,000

university in every state of the Un
ion, with an endowment of $1,000,000
five schools in technology, with an
endowment of $100,000; five normal
schools, with an endownment of $100
000 each; thirty county agriculture
schools in every state, with an en
dowment of $15,000 yearly; 100 new
high schools, and could have provid
ed for 3.000,000 children at the kin
Could Buy All Text Books.
"Besides these things we could ?
have paid for^all text books used In
the country and still have left $200
000 for the public library fund In ev
ery state. Thus. $250,000,000 would
do more to prevent war by education
than It does by armament.
"Will It not be possible some day
for us to spend this money in the
prevention of war?in the payment of
peace, and still keep those we edu
cate to carry on the cares of the
world out of the range of death?"
